The season four premiere of Downton Abbey was a hit with viewers. More than 10 million of them tuned in to watch, making it the most watched drama in PBS history. I assume viewers watched because the premiere was stacked with heartwarming moments. Spoiler alert! Don't read further if you haven't watched the episode yet. You can watch it here.

Here is my list of the top seven heart warming moments. Scroll down and watch the cast talk about what the most moving moments were for them.

1.) Violet giving Mary a pep talk.

2.) Mary breaking down in Carson’s arms.

3.) Thomas protecting baby Sybie and calling out Nanny West.

4.) Mr. Bates paying off Mr. Moseley’s debt with a dubious letter.

5.) Mrs. Patmore admitting that she gave Daisy a valentine.

6.) Branson sticking up for Lady Mary before Robert.

7.) Mr. Carson learning that his lost love Alice really loved him.
