Over the weekend, the first reports on Downton Abbey Season 2 came in, and apparently, Matthew Crawley has gotten himself engaged—but not to Lady Mary! It’s to someone so lowly, the Telegraph reports, that the Dowager Countess of Grantham (played by Dame Maggie Smith) “pulls a face as if she has swallowed a wasp.” Lady Mary herself has some romantic interest from an “unscrupulous press baron.”
And evilly suave footman Thomas returns—you didn’t think he’d just skulk off into the war, did you?
Plus Anna and Bates’s sweet romance is fouled up by the return of Bates’s wife, so who knows that the heck will happen there?
