IT'S DOWNTON ABBEY CHRISTMAS SPECIAL PICTURE TIME!
First up, let's see what's going on with the downstairs folk back at Downton!
Branson is engaged in a game of tug-o-war. Who needs to fight in the Irish Revolution when tug-o-war is going on?
Thomas is playing too! (Also, as hot as RJC is, that face in this pic... yikes.)
Meanwhile Mrs. Patmore is on a carosel with a new beau? oooooOOOOOoooOOooHHHH.
Now what are the Crawley family (+ their personal servants) up to? Why they're going to Scotland!
Mary and Matthew are preparing to board the train to Scotland. AND YEP TOTALLY A BABY BUMP.
Upon their arrival, the Crawleys are greeted by their hosts, Lord and Lady Flintshire. They look so excited to see their guests.
Bates is not impressed.
But Robert and Cora both look really happy to be there! Robert's face is actually killing me rn.
Oh look! Edith is there too! (BUT ALSO, OMG MARY IN THE BACKGROUND. SHE IS DEFINITELY PREGNANT. BUT IF THE SHOW MAKES HER LOSE THE BABY IN THIS EPISODE I WILL BE SO MAD. UGH.)
While up at Scotland, the Crawley engage in traditional activities...
... like posing with their significant others. (Seriously though, Matthew looks good here.)
Or posing with a car if you're Edith.
They also take some time to do some shooting. And I really pray that they maintain the continuity of Matthew being a bad shot.
And I guess Rose goes out to visit the men while they are shooting? IDK IDK.
And then there were some other pictures that I couldn't fit into this post.
Like this one. It's different from the Arrival Day because Robert is wearing different clothes (I think).
And this one. IDK. WHO IS THIS? The Radio Times commentary says it's the new housemaid named Edna? So I guess that's who it is?
