As any lover of Downton Abbey knows, the series premieres in the United Kingdom much earlier than it does in the United States. Why? We ask ourselves that question every single day. However, there is one silver lining to this particular arrangement: plenty of spoilers!
Below you'll find a roundup of all our top seasonal spoilers including photo galleries and recaps of every new Season 4 episode. You may want to go get yourself a cup of tea (or ring for the butler if that's more your style) before diving into the treasure trove below.
