An Emoji Recap of Downton Abbey's Season Three Finale

Categories: Film and TV

I've been frustrated by the latest season of Downton Abbey. It began with the edited out wedding in episode one, was enhanced by too many Edith romance story lines and then the loss of Lady Sybil? Unforgivable.

So when the season finale rolled around, I didn't watch it. Instead, I sat defiantly eating a sandwich. And yes, that sandwich was delicious. Thanks for asking.

Then, the texts started rolling in. My inbox blew up. I became scared of the internet. I had to dodge technology until I could watch the thing, which is how I imagine life is for sports people when they miss their sports.

There aren't words to describe my anger about the closer, so I had to substitute Emojis. If you missed the finale, here's a recap of what happened, as told through annoyed texts with friends. You could say this is the complete dumbing down of life, and you might be correct. But I believe more thought went into these flippant texts than all of the scriptwriting for Season Three, so I deem it appropriate.

Fellowes didn't have a choice, Dan Stevens/Matthew wrote himself out of the story.  Time to move on, Tom will step into the young lord who saves the Abby role.   I'm looking forward to the encounters between the Dowager Countess and Rose.   Regardless of what happens, it's still the best written dialogue on TV.

I agree.  I'm furious at Fellowes for killing off Sybil and Matthew.  The cats rioted Sunday night after the show.  What a mess!


@Myrna.Minkoff-Katz I feel like they were the only redeeming characters in that family. What's next? An all Edith flashback episode? Three seasons might be enough...

I have to admit that I'm warming up to Thomas.  The witch O'Brien will have Karma come around on her sooner or later.  Downstairs will probably be much more interesting in Season 4 than Upstairs.
