To say that I am annoyed would be an understatement.
But seriously? If you all aren’t aware, Siobhan Finneran (O’Brien) has decided to leave Downton Abbey. And not after season 4 — immediately.
I know people move on and such, but come on now. The show is only going on the fourth season, it’s not like they have devoted decades to the show! But whatever. I really wanted to see her have to deal with her “soap” guilt in the next season. I feel that her story could have been so much more.
Then again, I can say the same about Dan Stevens. I just don’t know what to think/feel/say.
So what do we have to look forward to? Thomas becoming less or more irritable? Tom Branson continuing to grow within the family (I hope), Lady Mary trying to live life as a widowed mother, Edith being the Jane Eyre of Downton? De-PRESSING. The only ray of hope I have to hold on to is that the Dowager Countess, Violet Crawley survived the third installment without dying. WHEW! We all know it is coming though! Especially since Fellows wants to make it all the way to WWII. Well, excuse my poor math skills but that is well beyond the average lifespan of a normal person since WWII started in 1939!
Then again, this is the dowager we are talking about.
