Downton Abbey Recap: 7 Simple Truths About That Silly, Shocking House Party

Originally posted 01/13/2014 11:45AM

While you were watching the Golden Globes, Downton Abbey was having a house party – a regal, riotous, weekend-long marathon of poker games, opera performances, formal dinners, and shocking revelations sure to reshape the remainder of the season.

Seven key takeaways from last night's gala event (warning, spoilers ahead):

1. Sullen Lady Mary Has a New Suitor. When an old family friend, Lord Gillingham (Tom Cullen), attends the party, the sullen Lady Mary finds herself possibly, maybe having a tiny bit of fun. On a horse ride, the two bond over the burdens of death and taxes. While Gillingham is technically engaged to a woman chosen for him by his parents, he seems rather smitten with Mary, even after she runs away in tears after realizing she was dancing to music played on a gramophone that belonged to her beloved Matthew.

Is there life after Downton? Jessica Brown Findlay has certainly made it work and things are looking up for Dan Stevens, but a new Funny Or Die parody proves that moving on might be a bit more difficult for Michelle Dockery.

In the fake trailer for the made-up TNT drama "Tough Justice," Dockery stars as a no-nonsense cop alongside The Shield's Michael Chiklis. Or at least, she does up until the moment that her Downton breeding kicks in, and her badass policewoman transforms into a genteel Edwardian widow. Come for the elbow slams, stay for the parasols.
