The finale is upon us! After seven glorious episodes of Downton Abbey, we’ve arrived at the Season 4 finale — our last look at the Abbey until the Christmas special. What all happened? Well, first off somebody died. Want to know who and how? We've got the details over in another article (there was just too much to say!)
As for the rest of Season 4 Episode 8, keep reading to learn where your favorite characters stand...and if they're still breathing.
The alternative plan? Rosamund proposes an extended trip to Switzerland to "improve my French." Everyone seems to buy the lie except the savvy old Dowager Countess. Traditional Violet may be but stupid she is not. She takes her daughter and granddaughter aside to get the truth out of them. She shows no judgement (making us love her all the more) and says she supports Rosamund’s plan, so much in fact she’ll pay for Edith's journey. And if Michael does return? Start again, the Dowager says.
