Just like everyone else that watched last night, there as an audible gasp at our house during the final moments of the season finale of Downton Abbey.
The entire episode was filled with foreshadowing something was going to go badly. And if you felt all night that something wasn't quite right, you were right.
Did you know that episode aired in England on Christmas? Now that's rough.
Then, after what happened, happened, PBS comes on begging for money? No. You don't do what you did and then beg for money. I'm not going to do it. Not after that. Ask me in a week.
Although, from a drama standpoint, this move is great. And if you're a Branson fan, I've gotta' believe you'll be seeing a lot more of him next season.
Anyway,here's why they did what they did on last night's episode.
