Did Downton Abbey Lose Its Charm? Finale Rounds Out a Frustrating Season

[WARNING: The following contains spoilers from the Season 4 finale of Downton Abbey. Read at your own risk.]

We are grateful to have Downton Abbey in our lives, but our devotion to the show is the very reason we're so irked at how it progressed this season.

"They're ready to be married," executive producer Joel Fields tells me. "What they're going to discover is having been fake-married for a long time, real marriage is not an easy thing. When you have two kids, there's family to contend with. Add to that their work is life-and-death and the future of mankind hangs in the balance, there's a little bit of pressure for them."
