‘Downton Abbey’ Season 4 Spoilers: Will Lady Rose Marry Jack Ross? Is Mary Ready To Move On With Blake?
Downton Abbey’s fourth season, which has yet to premiere in the U.S., is coming to a close on Sunday in the U.K. when the season finale airs on ITV. The eighth and final episode of Downton Abbey’s current season will feature the show’s cast of characters participating in Downton's sports day, while relationships develop and more dark truths are revealed.
The episode description reads:
“Rosamund (Samantha Bond) hatches a plan to help Edith (Lara Carmichael) out of her predicament, but will Violet (Maggie Smith) see straight through it? Isobel (Penelope Wilton) is on the receiving end of some unexpected attention, while Mary (Michelle Dockery) asks Gillingham for a favour. Rose (Lily James) has her nose put out of joint when plans don't go her way, and Alfred (Matt Milne) realises too late that he may have made a mistake. Just when Bates (Brendan Coyle) and Anna (Joanne Froggatt) seem to be coming through the worst of their troubles, some unexpected news gives her fresh cause for concern.”
That predicament of Edith’s could potentially be a pregnancy caused by a dalliance with the tenant famer mentioned in last week’s episode. If she is pregnant, will Rosamund help her hide it and give away the child? It also begs the question of whether or not Michael Gregson (Charles Edwards) will reappear. As for Alfred, perhaps he’ll decide to whisk Ivy (Cara Theobold) away.
In a sneak peek of the episode, Lady Rose converses with Lady Mary about Jack Ross (Gary Carr). Mary lets on that she knows that the two have taken their friendship to a new level, and Rose doesn’t back down. She tells Lady Mary that despite what people may think – especially her mother – she’s going to marry Jack Ross.
Mary, meanwhile, after rolling around in the mud with Blake (Julian Ovenden), might have found someone she could consider loving as she once did Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens). In pictures released for next week, the two sit together for tea on a couch – albeit a few feet apart. Their hesitation to go forward with their feelings could have something to do with Blake’s friend Napier (Brendan Patricks), who has long carried a torch for Mary. Branson (Allen Leech), who also lost a spouse last year, could also be moving on. Sarah Bunting (Daisy Lewis) looks likely to steal the widower's heart.
After the Downton Abbey season finale airs on Sunday in the U.K., fans of the series will be able to reunite with the show for its annual Christmas special in December. It will premiere in the U.S. on Sunday, Jan. 5, 2014.
