Desperate for Downton

VIDEO: New Season 5 Downton Abbey Trailer Shows Scandals, Changes

September 9, 2014 10:33am (EDT)

The new trailer for season five of "Downton Abbey" was just released and it shows scandals and changes.

Unlike the cryptic 20 second promo issued earlier this summer that hinted at upheavals, this extended sneak peek shows some of the world shattering things to come.

And they are scandalous. Jimmy is caught in a compromising position with a “lady friend”. Could this be Lady Astruther?

Robert exclaims that their grandchild may be “stolen from them forever?” Could this mean that he found out about Lady Edith’s child and the young one has been spirited away somewhere again?

Or maybe Branson decided to head off to America and is taking Sybbie with him? Speaking of the former valet, he is kissing a mysterious woman with a hat. Hopefully this isn’t the pushy teacher Sarah Bunting.

Meanwhile Lady Mary seems to be cozying up to Lord Tony Gillingham. This snippet shows them smooching too.

“The world is changing,” Edith observes. Indeed it is!

Watch the new trailer below.

All volunteers receive training, free parking and a catered meal provided by Carole Parks Catering.
