The chauffeur of our dreams lost his beloved wife Sybil (Jessica Brown Findlay) when Jessica decided to try her hand at feature films. Now, sadly, Tom might lose out on love once again because of Hollywood. The Telegraph has heard Season 5 might be the last hurrah for the woman who’s recently caught Tom’s fancy, schoolmistress Sarah Bunting, as actress Daisy Lewis is moving to America.
We know some of you out there are jumping for joy over the news Sarah might be out of the picture — “scheming,” “worrisome,” and “don’t trust her” being just a few of the choice words we’ve heard used against her character. While our feelings are more muddled over what to make of the village teacher, we would hate to see Tom have his heart broken again. Wasn’t it enough to have his wife die in his arms right after giving birth to their baby?!
Of course, Camp Downton hasn’t said what’s happening to Sarah in the next series. The actress herself doesn’t know; she told The Telegraph that “she’s moving to America for a bit” and that she’s not clear yet on “what that means for Downton.” Seeing as Season 5 has already wrapped (and, in fact, is set to premiere in the U.K. at the end of this month), we suspect an end-of-season cliffhanger is in store for what happens between Sarah and Tom.
