Downton Abbey ... A Dream Sequence?
Lady Grantham: "You are quite wonderful the way you see room for improvement wherever you look. I never knew such reforming zeal."
Mrs Crawley: "I take that as a compliment."
Lady Grantham: "I must have said it wrong."
So, when one of the characters meets a final and unalterable end, I am inconsolable. There will be no "dream sequences" such as there were in Dallas, in which the entirety of season eight was revealed to have been a dream. Once the characters in Downton Abbey are gone, they're gone.
Can I stand to watch another season? I can hardly wait.
