Any big Downton fans out there who can tell me what happened in the very last episode of series 2 and also the Xmas special? Tryin to get ready for the new series on Sunday but is there anything else I missed? (apart from Lady Mary and Matthew getting together that is)

*pedantry alert*
Would the expression 'hit the spot' as said by Carson been in existence in 1920?

Sorry 'have been in existence'.

The man with the melted face? He just slinked away never to be mentioned again confused

Bit of a slow burner so far... Still at least Branson is back! grin

Sybil is looking a tad dowdy.

Pickle is trying his best, but it its very hard!

zgaze Sun 16-Sep-12 21:39:16

Is Sybil meant to be pregnant? I'm only half watching, have I missed a bit?

Gigondas Sun 16-Sep-12 21:39:35

Why has pickle turned into Michael Collins?

What's happened to Sybil? She looks shocking!

squoosh Sun 16-Sep-12 21:40:03

Matthew and Mary met EIGHT years ago, why was he wittering on about getting to know each other?

ooooh no Lord G don't cry......

wintera Sun 16-Sep-12 21:40:19

Is Sybil pregnant?

Gigondas Sun 16-Sep-12 21:40:35

It's a euphemism squoosh wink (but agree)

Gigondas Sun 16-Sep-12 21:40:56

Yes wintera - didn't they say in Xmas special?

squoosh I think he means properly wink after all they're never left alone are they?

wintera Sun 16-Sep-12 21:42:07

Oh right, I missed the Christmas ep so it serves me right really! Thanks for clarifying.

squoosh Sun 16-Sep-12 21:42:43

Oh sexy 'getting to know'. She should have stuck with the caddish media magante, his sexy times would have been much more exciting!

Angelico Sun 16-Sep-12 21:43:41

Yeah I was a bit confused about the absence of bump or baby with Sybil

GeorginaWorsley Sun 16-Sep-12 21:46:17

Think there is bump,hidden by flapper frock.

Is it just me or have we had more adverts than programme so far?

squoosh Sun 16-Sep-12 21:47:42

The ad breaks are v v v v annoying. Keep being yanked out of 1920.
