There is a spoiler-free thread for US viewers, but not one for people watching them as they transmit in the UK, AFAIK.
Maybe the mods could change the thread title to indicate spoilers within?
I enjoyed it quite a bit. It was fun to see Mary both stand up to, and be rattled by, her would-be blackmailer. It was fun to watch Daisy lose her shit yelling at the landlord who’s about to turf out her father in law. And I am a huge Edith fan so I enjoy watching her out Mary in her place:
Edith: My tenant is moving out.
Mary: Out of Michael Gregson’s flat?
Edith: Out of my flat.
And of course, Carson and Mrs. Hughes were too adorable for words.
So I did enjoy it. But it’s feeling … tired. Mary can’t be bothered being a bitch anymore. Edith can’t be bothered to mope or pity herself. Thomas is tired of everyone hating him. Lord Grantham is mentally already putting the For Sale sign on the door. It feels like senioritis is descending on Downton. So I think we’re in for a good final season, but there’s no doubt to me that it should be final.
