Downton Abbey > Downton Abbey Season 3 Death: Who Will It Be? > Comments Page 2
Of Sybil has a boy then won't he displace Matthew as heir?!?
Sybil was indeed about 14 when the series began. She was wearing her hair down during the day, something an older girl would not have done. The first season covered almost four years, so it's perfectly consistent for Lord Crawley to have said that Cora hadn't been pregnant in 18 years, since the season ended just after her miscarriage.
Okay, I defo think that the baby will be Sybil and Branson's, because it says that on the Christmas Special, and it says that those two will be returning for ALL of series 3.
I for one hope that Sybil will not die in child birth, but it is a major possibility. But I think that people saying that Branson will die in the Irish Revolution is a little bit out there. Also, Branson never has wanted to fight, he didn't in WW1, so I bet he doesn't want to in the Irish Revolution! And, there are snapshots I have seen of Branson having dinner with the rest of the family, and there being a few heated discussions, so he is obviously there and not fighting!
Julian Fellows has said that he dearly wishes for Violet to return, as she is leaving in Series 3, but he has also said that he is not killing her off, as he loves her character, and when or if she wants to return she can, without her having to return from the grave.
The death is still a mystery to me, but I hope it's Cora, she's quite anno
Sybil and Branson will have the baby.
The Dowager Countess(Maggie Smith) will die
Edith and Sir Anthony Strallan will be married
I am obsessed with this series and can't wait for more.
My bet is that Sybill will have had the baby by the time the series starts. If what I read is true and she is forging ahead with a movie career they will keep her in Ireland on the sidelines but as she is so popular they won't kill her off. I think it will either be Edith (as they can't marry her off), the Dowager (as Maggie Smith has not signed on for series four or five (I've read) or even Isobel as she isn't as central to the story line any more.
The baby will be Mary and Matthew's as the series is over a time span of 18 months? The wedding will be theirs too.
I want to see if Patrick Crawley comes back too. That storyline was never really resolved.....
Cora will die thus opening door for Shirley McLane coming into the series.
Plus gives a new twist as to the future of the estate' line of succession. Will the Earl find a new wife? Did the maid who he had a tryst with and quit reappear and her son the adopted new heir?
Branson will DIE for sure. I wish it was Bates, but he is too popular. Sybil will have a son. Maggie Smith won't die, I think she'll just go to America or will just be written off. I don't think Matthew and Mary will have a baby in Series 3, and I have a feeling she won't be able to conceive- maybe she got VD off of Permuk. I don't want to see Edith and that OLD crippled guy Strallan get married. I don't want Edith to even find a boyfriend period. I want her to keep getting desperate. Bates' wife committed suicide- some people think Richard Carlyle killed her? Will they bring back "Patrick Crawley?" Ugh- he was freaky!
i want to cover a variety of things here. first of all i think the death will be either carson, because he had some health issues in season 2 and because he is a major character. violet, even though shes fun to watch this is her last season and lets face it considering the ages on that show her character must be as old as dirt. mabey sybil for the drama effect, or branson so sibil must come back. death aside i am hoping bates and anna have a happy ending, but to me it seemed in season two he acted differently. also this is kinda random but in the end of season two it was 1920 and in the beging of the series it was 1912, mary said that sybil was 21 so that would make her fourteen at the start right? for me it just didnt seem like it what do you think.
I believe the birth will be Sybil's child, and although very likely I hope she does not die in childbirth. I also do not hope this in any way but I think that Carson's death would certainly be a game changer and bring some interesting things into the plot.
I think it will probably be Maggie Smith. No matter how much we don't want it to happen, season 3 is her last. I think it would be interesting if Branson dies because then we would have a depressed Sybil story line. Also I don't think Matthew would die. They wouldn't do that. My thoughts on Branson dying are such; he won't. I wouldn't be appalled cause he can be kind of annoying sometimes (sorry to all the Branson fans). Although it would be interesting to have Sybil be sad, I don't think he will die in the Irish revolution because didn't he get denied for the war because of his heart condition? Although I guess if it was a revolution that may not come into affect. My gretest bet is Vilot even of we don't want it to happen. Another option is that they chose someone surprising because everyone knows Maggie smith is leaving so that wouldn't be a great shock if she died. I can't wait for season 3. Why can't it come back soon instead of not until 2013????????
Not sure I remember Sybil being 14, as Lord Grantham made the comment in Season 1 about Cora not being pregnant for 18 years. Maybe I misheard.
I am hoping that Sybil's baby will have been born by the beginning on season 3 and that the birth is mary and Matthews child!!! As for the death I agree Branson would be the most likely choice and therefore Sybil will return home were the three sister could get back to fighting among them at downton! I really hope that bates gets out of jail and Anna and him can leave downton and live happily ever after!
News that Edith will marry ....my guess is that PAtrick returns and he is indeed the heir PAtrick CRawley! Thus, Edith becomes the future mistress of Downton, starting another CRawley sisters fued.
I AM SOO PUMPED FOR SEASON 3! Okay so we all know that the marriage is Lady Mary and Matthew... but it wouldn't be a good idea to kill either of them... The shows ratings would probably drop through the floor. So i think their safe. But if anybody it will be Sybil. Fellow's is sort of setting her up for disaster. If you put childbirth+1920's with no medicine together, it equals death! So I think will be saying farewell to Lady Sybil...
cannot wait for series 3.
I think that the baby is Sybil and Bransons, not sure about the death bu (apologies to all the Bates lovers out there) I hope its Bates, he really doesn't add much to the plot.
It would be intriguing if Edith married Sir Richard Carlisle or Mr Pamuks twin brother.
Originally I thought the character to die would be Isobel. What with Matthew and Mary wed and presumedly living at Downton, there would be little reason to keep her on. Plus with the arrival of Shirley Maclaine, Violet will have someone new to spar with. But now that Maggie Smith is definately leaving, it could be her instead. They won't have three older woman. It's DEFINITELY not Bates, as he's sighed for a fourth and fifth season. As for the baby, Sybil is pregnant, is she not? I believe that there will be two weddings; Matthew and Mary, of course, and Edith and Anthony Strallen (yuck!)
I have a theory concerning the baby of the unwed mother, the former maid named 'Ethel'. The infant's true paternal grandfather wanted the child, but not the mother. And Ethel refused and chose to keep the child. But the true paternal grandmother felt sympathy for Ethel.
I think the death will be the paternal grandfather. AND, I think that the widowed paternal grandmother will THEN invite Ethel and the baby to come into her home.
We can't leave Ethel living 'like a drudge' and trying to raise that beautiful baby boy in a state of such hardship, can we?
So that's my theory. I won't bet on it, of course, but I am open to being hired to help write twists in the plot.
If I did bet, it would be that it is Carson who dies. And that is simply too sad a thought for anyone to bear, which is why it very well might happen.
Everyone is missing an obvious one: the baby is Sybil & Branson's; thedeath is Sybil (in childbirth)...
I'm with Mary's comment - I personally don't think it will be Branson. Yes, they do have the Irish Revolution, but Allen Leech was only promoted to the main case for series 3. My thoughts are that Branson is going to be wounded, but like Matthew in Series 2, he comes through it. I think the person to leave will be Maggie Smith. If I am right (a big 'If') then it'll be a big shame, since Violet is such a fantastic character, and her fabulous one-liners will be sorely missed. But, then again, it could be a completely different character, since the Dowager seems to be the one that everyone is guessing - that could have ben Julian Fellowes's intention, to get everyone thinking it was one character when it's really another....I really, really can't wait for Season 3 now!
The baby just has to be Sybil & Bransons - in the Christmas Special it was announced that Sybil was pregnant. I like other people's theory of it being Anna's, but I don't think it's particularly likely (but who know
We're all supposed to assume the death will be Bates. However, I believe the death most likely will be Branson - in some reprisal or another. The birth - well the most likely candidate would I think be Anna Bates (following their one night of nuptial bliss). Whatever, can't wait!
Many say that someone important in the family will die. Remember that Tom Branson IS Lady Sybil's husband - so he is someone important and IN the family, AND the Irish Revolution started in 1919 and didn't end until 1921. He could EASILY be killed during fighting, unseen on screen, in Ireland, bringing Sybil home.
Also, in the Christmas special, we know that Lady Sybil is pregnant, so I belive that that could easily be the baby born. (Of course, I always hoped that Anna would get pregnant by Bates right away and bring a baby-Bates into the world, but I think that that may be wishful thinking at this point).
Smith could be the one to die. Or even Matthew. (If he does, Mary could have had a son beforehand and that son would be the infant Earl and therefore Mary would retain her money and the house and all that!).
I very much doubt that Tom Branson registers with Rebecca Eaton as a 'main cast memeber' - he's only been promoted to a main cast credit for S3.It's clear that Ms Eaton sees Matthew,Cora,LordG, Mary and Violet as main cast. I'd say you're death could come from one of those, though not Violet - too obvious.
S3 picks up pretty quickly from the Xmas Episode - no time jump, so we have 18months from the beginning of 1920. I guess Sybil will have her baby by episode 3 as this will be about summer 1920. If JFB wants time out to be a movie star, surely Fellowes can just send her back to Ireland with her husband and kid.
Alan leech (Branson) has been promoted to main cast so I really hope he doesn't die. What if lord Grantham has a stroke or something and downton is thrown onto matthew? Could happen. I have a feeling that O' Brien's nephew will hit it off with Daisy. And I can't wait to see more of Mrs. Patmore and Cousin violets helarious remarks :)
I think that Branson should die of a heart attack, bringing back Sybil and his irish working class mother and baby. That could be fun watching the mum in law trying to help the servents and so on.
Sybil's baby has to be a boy. then when mary has her children they should all be girls, thus elevating the son of a lowly driver to the new lord grantham!
Want to see bates and anna have a baby. Bates comes back, takes over his old role as valet, and p*ssing off thomas as he gets demoted, making o'brian and thomas scheme more against them.
If anna has a baby there will be more tradgey in her life, maybe sybils baby lives and hers dies?
Also just to set the cat amongst the pidgeons Lady Edith should marry Sir Richard after a really nasty messy court case with Mary when he sues her for breach of contract (breaking the engagement). then american grandma is needed to come to downton for her cash!
