  • Spoiler alert! The Season 4 finale of Downton Abbey airs this Sunday and we've got a sneak peek of the action...

    Downton Abbey series 4 comes to an exciting head this Sunday with the much-awaited season finale, and we’re already gearing up for an explosive one.

    In the most exciting news of the week, we may be seeing another Downton Abbey engagement after a certain Lady falls victim to the charms of a less-than-suitable gent…

    *Spoiler alert*

    Sadly, we’re not talking about Lady Mary finally saying yes to her dishy new suitor Lord Gillingham, or giving in to her obvious attraction to the difficult-yet-intriguing Charles Blake. Instead, it’s Lady Rose’s turn for some happy news.

    We witnessed Rose and singer Jack Ross growing closer in last weekend’s episode, when the two characters shared a romantic boat ride together.

    And in the first preview clip for the series finale, Lady Rose is seen telling Mary: ‘I love him. And I won’t listen to any imperialist nonsense about racial purity and how he should be horsewhipped for daring to dream.

    ‘I’m going to marry him, Mary. And I don’t care what it costs. And I won’t keep it a secret.’ Uh-oh.

    We’re also promised a conclusion to the storyline which has dominated the current series – Anna’s incredibly tragic attack at the hands of Green. We predict things coming to a head with Bates and Green, although our fingers are crossed Bates doesn’t land himself in hot water as he comes to his lady’s rescue.

    Downton Abbey‘s fourth series concludes on Sunday, November 10 at 9pm on ITV.

    We. Can’t. Wait.
