A new sneak-peek clip has been released from next week’s penultimate episode of season 3 of Downton Abbey, giving fans a glimpse at a new character and familiar tension. Minor spoilers ahead.
Believe it or not, season 3 of Downton Abbey is nearing its conclusion. This Sunday night marks the second-to-last episode of the season, and promises to feature at least one new – and potentially controversial – face. Check out a sneak peek from episode six right here:
It looks like Violet and Isobel are at loggerheads again; while always amusing, it’s a bit of a shame the sniping fun comes at poor Ethel’s expense. Meanwhile, fresh-faced Lady Rose seems oblivious to the tension, though not to the coffee (thank goodness!). Check out a few more morsels of information in the episode preview below:
Babies! Bates! Bluegrass! And… cricket? Hold onto your hats, folks! The official episode summary from PBS says:
Change arrives in a big way for several key characters at Downton Abbey. A yearly cricket match with the village sees old scores settled and new plots hatched.
And next week will bring the two-hour season finale:
The Crawleys head to a Scottish hunting lodge, while the downstairs staff stays behind at Downton Abbey. New romances flare up, and a fresh crisis unfolds.
Downton Abbey airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on PBS.
