Lady Mary Is Depressed On “Downton Abbey” Season Four

And why shouldn’t she be? Girlfriend has a lot to be glum about. Cousin Matthew and her finally got hitched after all that … and he promptly died in a car accident while driving home from visiting Lady Mary and newborn George at the hospital. Now she’s a lonely widower and single mom shacked up with her parents in that big depressing house and the Internet still hasn’t been invented yet. I’m crossing my fingers that when “Downton Abbey” season four comes back on PBS on January 5, Mary will have a love affair with late sister Sybil’s husband Branson, who is also a lonely widower and single parent. But we know how Mary feels about the help. [IndieWire]
