This is how I will remember it.
Downton Abbey's 6th and final season began last night.
It was wonderful. It had the feel of the first few seasons.
I have mourned Matthew's death for over two years and have not forgiven
Dan Stevens for leaving the show...but every thing else was on point and I was happily distracted by many other good parts last night.
I shed a tear or two and even giggled one or twice.
And I didn't hate Bates. So dang happy they are done with all of that depressing stuff.
