Warning: Spoilers Ahead

It’s six months later and as much as things have changed at Downton, they’ve also remained the same. Thomas still endeavors to find out what Baxter knows about Bates, Lady Mary still hasn’t made a decision between Tony Gillingham and Charles Blake and we still don’t know what’s happened to Michael Gregson.

6 teases from the season 5 premiere:

  • Someone may actually beat Barrow at his own game
  • There’s an indecent proposal
  • More than one person questions Lady Edith’s actions and intentions
  • More than one of the downstairs staff has a crisis of confidence
  • The Dowager Countess initiates a scheme
  • Someone from Branson’s past makes trouble

Episode synopsis, from PBS:

A working-class prime minister is elected and old attitudes start to change. Robert is snubbed by the village. Baxter tells all, and Edith plays with fire.

Season 5 of Downton Abbey premieres Sunday, January 4th at 9/8c on PBS.
