Sunday's Downton Abbey on PBS Masterpiece brought a nice, gentle close to a difficult, unsatisfactory season. At the end we got to see Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes on a rare day off, at the English seaside, wading into the water and holding hands like two children afraid of being carried off by a wave.
This may even have hinted at a growing, sunset intimacy between the two. Given all the misalliances on Downton, what could be better than the prospect of a romance between the two characters with the best hearts?
Considering last season's brutal finale and the sometimes ridiculous swings of the show's plot, this could very well mean that Carson winds up like poor Mr. Pamuk, smuggled out of a bedroom wrapped in a sheet. Not yet, anyway.

There was a pall cast over Downton after the dark events of last week's episode. Fortunately, to lift the spirits, this week brought a trip to London, a surprising and modest proposal, dancing at the Lotus Club and the comeuppance of a certain conniving maid.
Here, in seven quotes, is everything you need to know about Sunday night's episode of Downton Abbey:

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.

This is something you'd expect to see at a downtown Arby's, not at Downton Abbey.
During a trip to the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon set Tuesday night, Downton Abbey's Michelle Dockery joined the host in his newest holiday tradition, in which contestants put large pairs of antlers on their heads and then try to toss rings onto each other.

The fourth season of Downton Abbey won't be on the air in the U.S. until next year, but fans of the British drama can get a tantalizing glimpse of what the lies ahead for the Crawley family in a new one-minute trailer.
As Lady Mary continues to mourn the loss of her husband, Matthew, who died in a car accident at the end of the last season, her grandmother, the Dowager Countess of Grantham, tells her: "You have a straightforward choice, you must choose either death or life."
But moving on isn't easy.

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.
