First of all, I’d like to reassure you that this post will in NO WAY have spoilers for Downton Abbey Season 3. So, if you leave comments (which I hope you do), please keep that in mind.
Recently something HUGE was spoiled for me, and I’m BEYOND upset. AGH! Anywho, let’s move on, you blissfully un-spoiled people.
Thoughts on Downton Abbey Season 3 So Far
Well said, Dowager Countess.
It’s taken me awhile to catch up on Downton Abbey Season 3, but I finally watched the third episode this weekend. SO MANY FEELINGS.
So many things have changed (couples, new visitors) and some things have stayed exactly the same (Mary’s stubbornness, Dowager Countess’ razor-sharp humor). I’m really impressed so far, and I’m completely shocked already by the progression of the series.
How do you think this season compares to the other Downton Abbey seasons? Are you loving it or feeling meh?
A few things I’m loving so far:
- Cora’s mother – She’s American, she’s witty and she’s out to cut the Dowager Countness
- Subtle class changes and shifting
- The drama, oh the drama
- Romances, new and old
- Thomas and O’Brien – the ultimate frenemies
