You have now been warned; so here goes...

A little opportunity to offer your thoughts on a breath-taking finale to Season 3 of
Downton Abbey!!

This will be a very short diary to give us diehards a spot to offer thoughts.

Follow below...

After a terrible beginning, IMO---where Mary was already 8 months pregnant---we move quickly to several little sidebars:

Mrs Patmore being wooed?

Branson getting involved?

Thomas getting thrashed & robbed..

Mrs. O'Brien getting smart & nasty..

Rosie, being Rosie....

And, much more...

And then.....................................

here is a nice interview with a producer of the show; and where we go from here:

When EW spoke to Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes earlier this year, he advised viewers tuning into season 3 of the upstairs-downstairs drama to “have a box of kleenex” ready.
We needed more than one for that finale. After three seasons of watching Matthew (Dan Stevens) find his place, both at Downton and alongside the love of his life, Mary (Michelle Dockery)—he met his demise on last night’s episode in a devastating car accident that took place shortly after he saw his newborn son for the first time.
Read it, as he goes on to discuss how the role of Mary will evolve next year....

The floor is open---share your shock, tears, joy..of what you saw last night----and of the series itself.....

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
