forgot all about this thread. oh my how i love this show. i have not seen the most recent episode but while putting pieces together watching the first two seasons on dvd i was on wiki and stumbled on sybil dieing UGH! i agree with the prediction above - tom would have no real reason to stay at downton other than the baby but i bet his rebel calling will over ride that and no way he could be a good rebel with a baby in tow!
i DO wish something could get bates out of prison and omg how i love the grandmother. she has the most awesome lines ever!
