Downton Abbey’s third season has so far delivered a new baby, a tragic death, Bates’s (Brendan Coyle) freedom, and a handsome new footman (Ed Speleers) who catches Thomas’s (Rob James-Collier) eye.

There’s only one more episode left to air on PBS the Christmas special, “A Journey to the Highlands” and it promises to be both a tearjerker and a game changer.

In the episode, which will air Sunday, February 17, the Crawley family travels north to Duneagle Castle in Scotland. Amid a rash of new romances, a country fair, and another birth, a fresh crisis strikes Downton. Click here for the spoiler-y details!

It’s hard to believe Season 3 is almost a wrap, but the good news is that a fourth installment of Julian Fellowes’s sudsy British drama is already in the works!
