Downton Abbey

The “Downton Abbey” Season 4 Christmas special trailer has finally dropped, and it’s full of tantalizing clues about what’s to come in our favorite scandalous period drama. The minute-long trailer teases at new plotlines for all our favorites, including a love triangle for Lady Mary, clues about Mr. Green’s murder (possibly at the hands of Mr. Bates), Tom Branson’s developing romance with a local schoolteacher and the introduction of “Downton’s” newest guest star, Paul Giamatti.

“Well, the gang’s all here, I see,” Shirley MacLaine, who plays Lady Cora’s eccentric American mother, says to begin the trailer, leading the Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith) to ask, “Is that American for hello?”

We also see a new love interest for Daisy, Lady Mary hinting that Mr. Bates may have killed Mr. Green, and plenty of dancing.
Shirley MacLaine also gets the final line in the trailer, also to the Dowager Countess: “My world is coming nearer and your world, it’s slipping further and further away.”

As we previously reported, the episode synopsis is:

“It’s the summer season and as part of Rose’s ‘coming out’ she is to be presented at Buckingham Palace. The family and servants are at Grantham House, their London residence, preparing for the busy social program. Not one to miss such a grand occasion, Cora’s mother, Martha Levinson makes the journey from New York with her playboy son Harold, fresh from his recent brush with the law. Both outspoken and larger-than-life, they make quite an impression amongst certain members of London’s high society, in particular with Lord Aysgarth, played by James Fox.

“Isobel finds herself with an admirer while Edith is wrestling with a moral dilemma. Downstairs, Daisy gets an unexpected invitation and Carson treats the staff to a special day out. When the Crawleys are implicated in a scandal that threatens to engulf the monarchy, Robert will go to great lengths to protect the royal family, and his own.”

Watch the trailer below.
