In a 44-second clip released by British channel ITV, we see Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) pale and listless. She refuses to wear anything but black in honor of her new role as widow of the dearly departed Matthew (Dan Stevens). Then Nanny brings in the adorable — seriously, a sailor suit? Are you trying to kill us with cuteness, Julian Fellowes? — baby George.
What does Mary do when faced with such cheek-pinching innocence? She leans in to kiss her six-month-old’s downy head and whispers “Poor little orphan” and so our hearts burst into a thousand itty-bitty pieces.
Watch the rest of the clip and try to keep your spirits up, guys.
