Downton Abbey Finale

February 20, 2012 by staff 

Downton Abbey Finale, ‘Downton Abbey’ closed out its second season with plenty of drama, including a marriage proposal and some good old-fashioned kidnapping. Season two of the enchanting “Downton Abbey” ended Sunday night with Lady Mary accepting Matthew’s proposal of marriage.

Thinking they will now blissfully live happily ever after, of course, is as daft as thinking the roses grown by the village gardener back in season one were in a fair fight against the roses grown by the Dowager Countess’s gardener.

Nonetheless, the Mary-and-Matthew moment ended a tough season — one marked by war, death, murder convictions, family defections, a crumbling social order, high-stakes blackmail and the Spanish flu – on an exhilarating note.

Every “Downton” fan has been hoping since the middle of last season that these two ships would finally stop passing in the night, and with Matthew’s proposal in the gently falling snow, we can go into the off-season knowing that at least for that final frozen moment, something went very right.

We have all of next year, after all, to learn what can go wrong. Since it looked quite chilly on that midwinter night, and Lady Mary was wearing only a thin indoor dress, perhaps we should start by worrying about the chilblains.

Nah. Let’s enjoy it.

By “Downton Abbey” standards, even the standards of this fast-paced season, Sunday’s finale, also known as “the Christmas episode,” packed in a lot of action.

With Matthew’s fiancĂ© Lavinia dead and Matthew’s guilt plunging him into more gloom than he felt in the wheelchair just two episodes ago, he had first to be purged of the notion he had forfeited all right to anything happy for the rest of his life.
