Downton Abbey: Watch Season 4 Episode 1 Online

at . Comments

The return of Downton Abbey may have caused elation around the country, but the premiere itself didn't exactly share that sentiment.

It's six months after Matthew's death on Downton Abbey Season 4 Episode 1 and Mary is still much in mourning. She finally breaks down in the arms of Mr. Carson and has a "good cry," as most viewers very likely joined her in the water works department.

Elsewhere, Matthew did not leave a will, meaning Mary is only entitled to one-third of the estate and a family feud going forward is very likely.

Ms. O'Brien also up and left, causing Cousin Rose MacClare to advertise for a new maid - and for Edna to return and be hired on as her replacement.

Finally, an electric mixer made its debut. Much to Mrs. Patmore's chagrin.
