One of the only good things about knowing for sure that Downton Abbey’s ending after next season is that it gives Julian Fellowes and company plenty of time to plot satisfying resolutions to all the main story and (hopefully) give all the major characters an appropriate happy ending.
Determining what those endings should look like though will doubtless occupy those of us that think and obsess and write about British TV through the rest of the year. How can we say goodbye to these characters? What sort of endings do we want to see for them? And what sort of closure do we need from their current story arcs?
Fans apparently aren’t the only people thinking about these obviously super important issues. Masterpiece put together a cute video featuring several of the series’ major cast members contemplating the question of what sort of ideal endings they’d envision for their characters next year.
