Perhaps it seems too soon to talk about Mary finding love again, but let’s face facts. She’s beautiful, she’s rich, she needs help. If Downton Abbey is going to remain one of England’s most premiere estates, Mary is going to need a partner. And this season she won’t suffer from a shortage of willing young men interested in the role.
In a new clip from the upcoming episode, we get a sneak peek at their little tête-à-tête and a private look at Mary’s memories of her dearly departed husband.
“You were happy?” Tony asks of Mary and Matthew.
“Wonderfully happy,” she replies before the notorious Ice Queen admits she’s not sure knowing such great love was for the best. “Matthew changed me. I loved him, but he changed me. If I was as tough as I was before I met him, I bet I’d be happier now.”
Perhaps, but what about baby George? Or your beautiful wedding? Or that lovely proposal in the snow? Mary, you can still be happy again!
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem Tony will be the one to make her so since he reveals he’s engaged to some hoity-toity heiress named Mabel Lane Fox. That said, what Mary wants, she gets. Just ask Lavinia Swire.
