OK, all you Downton Abbey fans...have at it!

You don't want to know what I know since I've watched ahead of BBC America.

I'm not sure why the plot line with Anna had to be introduced. I thought I read that Elizabeth McGovern said that this season was supposed to be more fun and light-hearted than last season's tragic one!

Also, Braithwaite annoys the heck out of me. What is she up to, and when are they going to get rid of her?

I cannot freakin' stand Braithwaite. Ugh!!!

Poor Anna! My heart was breaking for her. I kept saying, "Someone has GOT to come downstairs any minute..." but no luck.
She and Mr. Bates have had such a rough time, I wanted them to have some happy time together.
Now I think this is going to lead to a baby that she's not sure is Mr. Bates'. He, of course, will be left in the dark for a long while driving a wedge between them.

The nanny- buh-bye biotch! I loved that Cora planted her butt in a chair and refused to leave the room (or leave the nanny alone with the kids).
I don't think Thomas had any idea that the nanny was treating the kids so differently and that he just wanted to stir up trouble (as usual). I think he just got really lucky this time.

Oh! And Lord Grantham- at the rate he's going, his poor decision making is going to land the family fortune back in the toilet!
I hope Mary stands firm and doesn't let him run all over her.

I think this was the season of BABIES!

Anna - be still your beating hearts guys, she's not preggers - but thats not to say that Mr. Bates stays out of trouble :P and it gets REALLY iffy between them, like....bad.

Branson gets himself in to a bit of downstairs trouble himself - thank god for Mrs. Hughes!!

And Lady Edith - oh lord what a hot mess. I hope next season we get to finally meet......HER DAUGHTER!

Shew! i had to get that out....

Personally, I really wanted to see the Lady Rose/Jack Ross thing filled out a bit more. It would have been a wonderfully exciting story line that I think fizzled to fast.

I adore this show.

This^^^^!! I can't stand the smarminess of his character (even though it's made for great plot lines), but it really ticked me off that he totally lucked out on this and now Lady Grantham thinks he's the bomb. Ugh.

Poor Anna.... So now if the potential romance between Lady Mary and that Lord Gillingham fellow progresses, won't his hideous valet continue showing up at Downton? How awful that will be.

While he does return once - Anna's emotions totally out her. She tries really hard.

I think my new love though is Mr. Bates. The writers make him completely in love with Anna and it just....gosh, its an awesome love story those two.

And god love Mrs. Hughes.

Undefinabl3- you're giving spoilers beyond the season most the US viewers have watched.
