Are we going to see the Dowager Countess die on “Downton Abbey” this season? While there has been previously quotes out there suggesting that there would not be any more major character deaths on the show following what happened with both Matthew and Sybil last year, the preview that aired following tonight’s episode did certainly raise the question as to whether or not this promise was going to remain true.
Violet take ill on next week’s episode, which in turn leads to Maggie Smith’s character deciding that she wants to see Robert shipped away at the time to avoid some of the stress and suffering of it all. We don’t quite know how he would feel about this if he knew, but Violet is going to become so ill at one point that she is bedridden. We don’t believe that Smith is leaving the show, but we will keep watch on it for at least a little while.
Just in case all of this was not enough for this episode, there are also at least a couple more stories that must be addressed:
1. How in the world Edith moves forward. She is seemingly pregnant, after all, but does not know where the baby’s child in Michael Gregson is.
2. What happens next with Anna and Bates. At the very end of the preview you can catch a glimpse of Joanne Froggatt’s character in tears, and that is not much of a good sign at all for those hoping for some sort of glimmer of hope / happiness now that part of the truth is out there.
