The Downton Abbey Marriage We May Not Have Been Expecting (SPOILERS)

Downton AbbeyYes, I know this is Bleeding Cool, not known for its Downton Abbey coverage, but shush. Roll with it.

There are marriages in the final season of the show. Of course there are. But as well as Carson and Mrs Hughes tying the knot, Bleeding Cool has got word of another wedding scene without these parties at the altar.

The possibility of Lady Mary racing up the aisle again is the favourite. Then of course there's Isobel and Lord Merton, or even Edith and her agent.

But in a previous episode we saw Mrs Patmore giving Carson rather delicate enquiries of the bedroom matter regarding his own nuptials. During which she stated that she was quite beyond that kind of endeavour, as a spinster.

That's what we call foreshadowing.

And in tonight's episode, there was a certain suggestive scene between Mrs Patmore and Mr Mason the pig farmer… are other wedding bells in the air?

At least we'll get a decent wedding cake. Just hope no one's ulcer explodes at the reception…
