And it's back! In the United Kingdom, at least. Tonight, the UK will see the premiere episode of Downton Abbey Season 3. And tomorrow, Heroes and Heartbreakers will have a spoiler-filled recap so you can read all about those crazy Crawleys, even if you aren't lucky enough to be in the UK to see it for yourself (PBS will air Season 3 in America in January 2013).
When last we left them, Bates had been given a life, not a death sentence; Anna had decided to stay at Downton Abbey; Mary and Matthew had finally agreed to marry each other; and Lady Sybil, now married to the Irish chauffeur, had sent a letter announcing her pregnancy.
Of course we know that Shirley Maclaine guest stars this season as Cora's brash American mother who goes toe to toe with Violet, Dowager Countess of Crawley. That should be delightful to watch!
So if you are intrigued to see what the Crawleys have been up to in the past year, return tomorrow for Naz Keynejad's recap!
