'Downton Abbey' Season 5 spoilers: Lady Mary kissing ...
Pictures have made their way online (via the Daily Mail) of Michelle Dockery and Tom Cullen filming a scene for "Downton's" fifth season, production for which just got underway. In the scene, Dockery's Lady Mary Crawley can be seen kissing Cullen's Lord Anthony Gillingham outside a building meant to represent the Grand Hotel in Liverpool.
Does this mean Lady Mary has made her choice?
As Season 4 winds down, Mary is caught between two men, the besotted Gillingham and the more prickly (but still besotted because -- it's Lady Mary) Charles Blake ( Julian Ovenden). She doesn't make a choice in the fourth-season finale, but perhaps these pictures indicate that Mary has chosen to pursue a romance with Lord Gillingham.
We're hoping that she actually continues to see them both, since that makes for such an interesting dynamic -- plus, we think Blake is actually a better match for her. What do you think, readers?
"Downton Abbey" wraps up its fourth season with a two-hour season finale Sunday (Feb. 23) at 9 p.m. ET/PT on PBS.
