...and as they walk out, Matthew confirms with Lord Grantham that he's on board. Carson then pitches to Dr. Clarkson, who hits one up in the air... which Branson catches one-handed for the win. I'm telling you, is there anything he can't do? He trots in and is congratulated by Matthew and Lord Grantham and we get a shot of the new Downton triumvirate before we go to credits. Join me next week for the season finale... which will be about the same length as this episode. Sigh.
