Downton Abbey, Series Six | The Finale Recap
Last night was THE night.
Last night, after six years, fans said goodbye to beloved characters.
Last night we cried over the poignant quotes and giggled over witty quips.
Last night we had a first-class invitation to a long-awaited and much anticipated wedding.
Last night we experienced a kind of magic.
That's right, last night was the Downton Abbey series (not season, the SERIES!) finale.
Forgive the sappy sense of nostalgia, but friends, when the series end of Downton Abbey was announced, it was quite a disappointment. The rational adult I am (ordinarily) has since gotten over it, but that doesn't lessen the elegance and beauty that was, Julian Fellowes Downton Abbey swan song.
It was everything I could have wished for and more. ❤

No matter how hard the writers may try, they’re never going to be able to achieve universal satisfaction. This is why, sometimes, a series finale has to be watched with a grain of salt.
Last night, the end of ITV’s Downton Abbey aired. With it, we have one last recap to share. Let’s jump right in because a whole lot of stuff went down.
The (Brighter) Future
As the episode opens, it’s to a delightful image of the family enjoying an afternoon on Downton’s grounds. “Donk,” as Robert is known to his grandchildren, is enjoying the next generation as young George, Sybbie and Marigold surround him, the future of Downton Abbey. Edith makes plans to move to London on a permanent basis, and newlyweds Henry and Mary stroll arm in arm. Continue Reading ➔
