There is a preview of Season 3 being passed around on FB, but being in Canada... I can't watch it. I get so angry with those geographical restrictions...
It is on PBS (which I can watch on tv, but not on line!!) http://www.pbs.org/downtonrevisited/home/
After years of watching soaps as well as Joss Whedon productions, I don't expect any character to stay "safe." Which, when you think about it, is what happens in real life. It's not all sunshine, roses and happy endings.
I'm not arguing, I'm just explaining why I'm right Violence doesn't end violence. It extends it. Break the cycle.
