Downton Abbey (Season 2)

June 14, 2016

Downton Abbey Season 2 continues its story of love and intrigue
at an English country estate, now mobilized for the trauma of war. With a returning cast
including Dame Maggie Smith, Elizabeth McGovern, Hugh Bonneville, Dan Stevens,
Michelle Dockery, Siobhan Finneran, and many more, Downton Abbey Season 2 airs over
three weeks on Saturdays, Oct. 7-21 beginning at 9 p.m.

The inevitable courtship between Matthew and Lord Grantham’s eldest daughter, Mary
(Dockery), was as bewitching as it was unresolved. Then there was Lady Grantham
(McGovern), the mistress of Downton who reacted with impressive cool when social
Armageddon threatened to bring down the family. Of equal interest were the
members of the downstairs staff, with their own romances and schemes, including
the most scheming of them all, Lady Grantham’s Machiavellian maid, Miss O’Brien
(Finneran).
