SPOILER ALERT!!!<br><br>
I thought Sybil's husband was awful and that they had no chemistry. But, baby on the way, I guess that's that.<br><br>
I hope the Burnt Patrick turns out to be Real Patrick ....Edith deserves her true love risen alive from the Titanic.<br><br>
So glad about Mary and Matthew and that Carlisle is gone. But so sad about Bates being guilty of his wife's murder! Well, I guess we need something to get worked out in season 3!<br><br>
I love this series so much and started it and watched them all in under 2 weeks. Gulp.

<p>I like Sybil's husband, like the premise that he's Irish Independent, and what that means for their future together.  But I agree about the chemistry.  The writers never convinced me that either of these two people would like the other, except in the most obvious way.</p>

<p>Maggie Smith won't be back.  <span><img alt="greensad.gif" id="user_yui_3_4_1_1_1340126953948_1296" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/greensad.gif"> Or she's having herself written out of the story or something to that effect.  That's a real loss, she's one of the reasons I checked out the show to begin with. </span></p>

<p>I agree.  Their story line felt so forced.</p>

<p> Noooooo!  Her character totally cracks me up.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am very much looking forward to season 3.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I recently read the book the seasons is based on and it was a disappointment. </p>

That's what I meant, I thought that the whole thing of him just constantly working on a car and proclaiming himself to be obsessed with her didn't sound genuine OR seductive (& kind of odd and out of left field) & he wasn't that charming, relaxed etc as a person and it's hard to imagine Sybil running far off with him. No spark or anything happening much between them that seemed at all romantically charged.<br><br>
Maggie Smith gone? D'rn it! Add me to the list or those who liked scenes with her in them the best!

<div>A representative for Masterpiece, which airs "Downton Abbey" in the US, told The Huffington Post that "Season 3 is currently filming with Maggie and the rest of the cast. We don't comment on future storylines, but <em>there's no truth in the story that Maggie is leaving the show."</em></div>
