Downton Abbey Season 4: Spoilers from the February 23 Finale!
Christmas came early! Well, technically it came right on time but for U.S. fans of Downton Abbey the holiday season has arrived once again. The two-hour season finale scheduled to hit PBS next Sunday (February 23) originally aired in the U.K. back on December 25, 2013, as the show’s traditional Christmas Special.
No matter when or where you watch the end to Season 4, however, we’ve got all the details about the episode. The special, which is set to air at 9 p.m. on the 23rd, will offer a breath of warm summer air as we follow our favorite upper crust family to London for Rose MacClare’s (Lily James) debutante ball.
The grand event will officially introduce Rose to high society (and to the Royal Family!). It will also presumably lead to new love interests for the feisty Scottish cousin. That is, if she’s over her one-time fiancé, the handsome American jazz singer Jack Ross (Gary Carr).
Royal drama aside, conflict continues for Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael) as she “wrestles with a moral dilemma.” Based on where we left Edith in the February 16 episode — pregnant and alone — we have a hunch her dilemma has something to do with Aunt Rosamund’s (Samantha Bond) grand scheme to have the baby adopted abroad.
Meanwhile, Isobel (Penelope Wilton) “finds herself with an admirer.” Our guess: that nice elderly gentleman the Dowager just happened to know, Lord Merton (Douglas Reith). Meanwhile downstairs, Daisy “gets an unexpected invitation.” Could a relationship finally work out for the perpetually heartbroken assistant cook?
What do you hope to see happen during the finale? We can tell you everything seeing as we watched the show back in December but be warned, spoilers ahead. Tell us your hopes and dreams for Downton Abbey.
