The event I am looking forward to is the wedding of Mary and Matthew. The party in the picture looks fun too!
I most look forward to seeing more O’Brien and to the Sybil/Branson storyline and, well… everything <3
Garb, garb,and more heavenly garb!
What could be more fun than watching sparks fly between Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham and Martha Levinson?
I want to see what comes about for Lady Edith! Also, Anna & John Bates!
The most obvious thing I look forward to is Matthew and Mary’s wedding. After that just catching up with all the characters and seeing how their lives have progressed.
I’m new to the series. I want to see what all the shouting is about.
Please enter me! Thanks so much for the opportunity! I appreciate the reviews and interesting tidbits that you bring to our attention!
Like everyone, I’m looking forward to the big M & M wedding. Plus, finding out what happens to Edith in Season 3. Hoping she gets a great storyline!
I absolutely must see the first meeting between Maggie Smith and Shirley MacLaine!
I am looking forward to watching the Earl’s coping with being caught between his mother and his wife’s mother, especially given those two characters as written and as their respective actresses portray them.
I adore the series and I can’t wait for Season 3!
I can’t wait for Mary and Mathew to finally get married and I’m excited to see what fantastic clothes they dress them all in this time!
I adore the series and I can’t wait for Season 3!
I’m hoping that Edith will manage to break down Sir Anthony’s reservations…
I’m most definitely looking forward to seeing Mary and Mathews wedding! Their so cute together. 🙂
Mary and Matthew’s wedding and Sybil and Tom’s baby! So excited 🙂
I’m looking forward to Bates being freed and reunited with Anna.
Would love to see a wedding…ANY wedding!! Just adore them. Of course more parties and more dancing would be a big plus! The Roaring Twenties are in their beginnings and ” FUN “is the word of that decade. So here is to more FUN on this great show.
The event I most look forward to in Season 3 is the arrival of Cora’s mother. Thank you, Evangeline!
I hope they explore more about the mystery of Cousin Matthew. The man who claims to be him was put off pretty quickly, but I think there is more to the story.
People dancing the Charleston and swigging cocktails!
This afternoon, I watched (re-watched, actually) a movie called “Blow Dry” – the cast includes Alan Rickman, Josh Hartnett, Sandra Griffiths, and Bill Nighy as a flamboyant hair-dresser, whose orange-spiked-haired assistant Louis was played by none other than Hugh Bonneville (Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham). http://tinyurl.com/agwd9gt
Quite a contrast, I think you’ll agree! The movie also features the late lamented lovely Natasha Richardson – still a shock to remember her tragically premature death.
I eagerly await watching Series 3 – hope Thomas gets his comeuppance, and Daisy gets a little more happiness in her life.
I’m hoping we actually do see Mary and Matthew get married without more drama. As for the other characters, I’m just hoping they get much better lines than they did in s2.
Love this page! I’m looking forward to all the adventures these characters get themselves into. I would like to see how their lives have changed and how they’ve grown for better or worse. Plus, meeting Cora’s mum looks to be pretty fantastic!
I am eager for more of everything – clothing, historical points, romance and trouble, the social inequities. Why do we love to see “how the other half lives”? I can’t wait!
Oh, Mary and Matthew’s wedding of course! I’ve blocked all my favourite Downton places so when I see it in January it’ll be for the first time. 😀
Oh, I can’t wait for Lady Sybil to return. Oh, and Shirley MacLaine. Dowager Countess and mother-in-law is going to be great. See the difference between American and British. Oh, and Mary and Matthew…Alright, I’m looking forward to it all.
I’m looking forward to everything! It’s been all I can do to not peek at what’s happened. The internet is such a dangerous place. 🙂
I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Edith. She really is one of the most interesting characters on the show now. Will she try to trump Mary’s wedding with one of her own? Or will she find something else to do with her life?
I can’t wait to see whether Branson is accepted by the family, and the arrival of Cora’s mother!
I can’t wait to see what happends to lady edith.
I never tire of looking at Hugh Bonneville! More 🙂 all kidding aside, I just look forward to where the story takes me. it is wonderful and I look the escape!
I can’t wait to see what happens to Anna and Mr. Bates.
I’m looking forward to seeing the interaction between the Dowager and Cora’s mother and hoping for some happiness for Edith.
