The OMG moment in the Downton finale was the arrest of Anna Bates (Joanne Froggatt) in connection with her rapist’s death.
Only Vyner doesn’t know that… but it was clear that he suspected it.
“We’ve found out Mr Green attacked women,” he told Anna. “His victims were small, slight women who given him no encouragement.
“Very unpleasant, wouldn’t you agree, Mrs Bates?” Vyner said pointedly to Anna.
And, without warning or giving her a reason, Vyner put Anna in a line-up with four other women.
He let Anna go but then, again without warning, Viner turned up to arrest Anna, shocking the entire household.
He said there was a witness who put Anna by Green when he fell/was pushed in front of the car.
“She won’t be convicted,” said Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) to John. “She won’t even be tried. They have nothing to go on.”
Is she right?
He revealed this to Cora (Elizabeth McGovern) after a touching closing sequence to mark Remembrance Sunday, with the Earl unveiling the Downton war memorial.
Will he reveal what he knows to Edith, too?
There’s plenty to keep fans guessing until the Downton Abbey Christmas special, which will air on Christmas Day.
