Even though “Downton Abbey” season 4 has yet to even start filming again, it is still not too early to talk about some general plot points; and when you have a show like this, you pretty much have to assume that romance is going to factor into the equation early and often. (Warning: the following contains spoilers, so read on at your own risk.)
So following the tragic events of the season 3 Christmas special, not everyone may necessarily think about the future of Michelle Dockery’s Mary right away. After all, we’re all still processing what happened to Dan Stevens’ character of Matthew, and the circumstances in which the actor himself chose to say goodbye to a role that made him into a household name.
However, Mary does still have a future to look forward to in season 4 of the show, and it apparently (per TVLine) will involve a new man. Who will it be? The report lists two possibilities as candidates: someone new, or a face that we have already come to know on the ITV series.
Just from a personal perspective, we’re going to tear our eyes out if for whatever reason Mary ends up with Tom Branson. It would be so terribly straight out of a soap opera if two characters that we already know got together simple because people close to them ended up dying. Plus, we have yet to see any sort of tangible chemistry between the two characters at all.
We are sure that Mary is not the only person who love will be in the air for on the show moving forward. There are no indications that Edith’s new romance will stop, and indications are that Tom will find someone to fall for in the future.
