With only two days to go before the return of the incredibly popular period drama, Downton Abbey, ten more photos from the upcoming season 4 premiere have been released by broadcaster ITV. As if anyone could forget the tragedy laced season finale, Mary’s mourning clothes remind us all of the stunning death of Matthew. Season 4 picks up six months after Mary’s husband and the Crawley’s heir died in a car accident. Like they have always done, the staff mourns and celebrates alongside the Crawleys as they all deal with the aftermath of losing Matthew while simultaneously welcoming his and Mary’s son to the family. Anna, who is usually closest to Lady Mary, appears concerned for the Lady’s well-being. Tom Branson also seems worried about Mary. The brother and sister-in-law may find common grieving ground over their shared losses (Branson’s wife Sybil, Mary’s sister, died earlier in season 3). Lady Edith, on the other hand, is going out into the world once more. She journeys to London where she spends plenty of quality time with magazine editor, Michael Gregson. The caption for this photo says the two enjoy a “bohemian lifestyle” together. Something tells me the Dowager Countless will not approve. Over the course of three seasons we have seen Edith grow from incredibly spiteful and downright bitter to a bit reckless and wild. Remember when she kissed the married farmer? Gregson definitely seems like the best gentleman candidate Edith’s attracted so far. Except for that tiny little detail of he’s married. To a woman who is in an insane asylum. It’s all very Jane Eyre. Still managing the Downton staff is Mr. Carson, who apparently refuses to smile for any photos. As another member of the downstairs group who is very fond of Lady Mary, Carson will be high empathetic mode. He may also find time to be pleased that he has a full staff for the first time in several years. Speaking of the staff, the boys are returning for season 4. Let’s hope Thomas has put some of his nastiness away for good. The ladies of the downstairs world will be hard at work as always. Daisy seems to be sticking around instead of going to her father-in-law’s farm and she appears to be working more side-by-side with the always delightful Mrs. Patmore. Last but certainly not least we have one of the series most beloved couples. As a hardcore Bates/Anna shipper, I am really hoping these two finally get some normalcy and wedded bliss this season. Downton Abbey Season Four premieres on ITV1 in the UK on Sunday 22nd September at 9pm.  PBS will air Season Four from January 5th 2014. [gallery ids="940,941,942,943,944,945,946,947,948,936"]
