Absence makes the heart grow fonder. We know that for sure now that Downton Abbey is back in our lives. That’s right, US readers! We’re watching the series along with our fellow fans on the other side of the Pond, which means plenty of spoilers for you including a recap of Season 4’s premiere episode .
Once you’re done reading (and re-reading and re-reading) the recap, watch this teaser trailer for Episode 2, set to air in the UK on Sunday, September 29:
A lot to take in, no? Honestly, we had to stop and rewind after that opening announcement by Earl Robert (Hugh Bonneville): “There is a letter from Matthew.” A letter? From Matthew?! What could it say? An explanation of why he didn’t create a will? Sentimental teachings for his baby boy George? A reminder for him to take his driver’s test?
That’s not all, though. Julian Fellowes decides to mix things up downstairs with Anna (Joanne Froggatt) looking to clash with Edna Braithwaite, the lady’s maid who returned from the shadows to stir up travel at the Abbey. A word of warning: Anna’s our fav, so you better check yourself before you wreck yourself, Edna.
Conclusion: Hold onto your crumpets, Downtonites! Next week’s episode looks to be a rocky one.
