Be still, our beating hearts: Lady Mary and Matthew Crawley have reunited.

Nearly three years after Dan Stevens' Downton Abbey character Matthew Crawley's devastating death at the end of season 3, the actor reunited with his on-screen wife Michelle Dockery at a special BAFTA event Tuesday in Richmond, England.

Dockery (a.k.a. feisty heiress and widow Mary) took to Instagram to post an adorable reunion photo of the two.

"Reunited. @thatdanstevens I've missed this face," she wrote as the caption to the sweet black-and-white picture, where she has one arm wrapped around Stevens, 32. "#bafta #LastDaysofDownton #matthewandmary."

Good Luck, Good Wife: 13 TV Shows That Survived Killing off Major Characters

Originally posted 03/24/2014 12:00PM

Killing off a main character in a television show is a risky move: You're upending the show's world (and putting a coworker out of a job) in the hope that the shake-up will lead to something greater down the line. And guess what? Despite the ministrations of fans, who claim that they will never watch their favorite show without [insert character name here], it often works!

Below, 13 shows that did the same thing The Good Wife did Sunday night, and not only survived, but thrived.

After losing two beloved main characters – first Lady Sybil and then Matthew – audiences may be wondering what further tragedy lies in store on season 4 of Downton Abbey.

But Michelle Dockery, who plays Lady Mary, reassures fans that as far as she knows, no other major characters will be leaving the show, which is set to return to PBS on Jan. 5, 2014.

"We're all doing series 5 next year," she told a TCA panel at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Tuesday.

Could Dan Stevens be coming back to Downton Abbey – as Matthew Crawley's thinner, darker, scruffier twin?

How else to explain the actor's dramatic transformation from blond and aristocratically well fed to trim and brunette with stubble? (Unless of course it's for another role).

Stevens, 30, last seen crashing to his death on Downton's shocking finale, reemerged over the weekend at the 2012 GLAAD Media Awards in New York with his new look (accentuated by a Calvin Klein Collection suit).

And while Michelle Dockery's Lady Mary is going to have struggle without her exceedingly earnest baby daddy next season, Stevens is taking on new acting challenges, shooting the thriller A Walk Among the Tombstones with Liam Neeson.

Downton Abbey's Dramatic Plot Turn: What Caused It?

Originally posted 01/28/2013 01:20PM

How seriously do TV viewers take what happens to the Crawleys and those in their sphere on Downton Abbey?

So seriously that, as the series' creator and writer Julian Fellowes recently admitted to PEOPLE, he even gets yelled at "a bit" by members of the public when something they dislike takes place on the show.

"And they know it all," the Oscar- and Emmy-winner, 63, said about the public's reaction. "They have opinions that are better than mine."

SPOILER ALERT: Details of Sunday's broadcast are about to be revealed.
