Is Downton Abbey going to kill off the entire cast? First Lady Sybil and now...well, that little shocker didn't happen until the end so let's just pretend it didn't and talk about the fashion instead.

Click through if you're in denial, too.

Lady Mary's Maternity Wardrobe:

Lady Mary looks nothing like Jessica Simpson at eight months pregnant--she's definitely more of a Beyoncé. Or maybe it's just that the loose 20s dresses are very forgiving. Either way, she's still wearing her favorite color (wine/berry/burgundy/jewel tones) and her long beaded necklaces.

Mrs. Patmore's "Girlish" Blouse:

Mrs. Patmore's romance is one of my favorite story arcs all season. I don't think she's ever worn anything except an apron--that is, until she pulled out this blouse. Her concern that it was too "girlish," was all for naught. Her paramour, the grocer, said to her, "In that blouse you look like you just stepped out of the pages of Vogue."

Lady Edith's Headbands:

Lady Edith's newfound confidence extends to her head gear lately. She broke out two fabulous head bands, just in time to decide to have a love affair with her editor (Remember him? The guy with the wife in the "madhouse.").

Rose Looks Like a Slut:

Rose has the typical mom/teen relationship with her mother. Mom says, "You look like a slut!" and daughter bitches and smokes behind her back. We're excited for season four (even though half the cast is dead) only to watch all of Rose's shenanigans and bad behavior. And of course, her amazing hair.

Anna Is Finally Happy:

And she's never looked better. She even danced a reel!

Glamping in the Highlands:

As I was watching this scene of the "ladies' lunch" in the Scottish Highlands, all I could think was, "Who carried that heavy metal stag table decoration all the way out there?"

Hunting Hats: Crawling around on the ground in a suit and tie doesn't seem very practical. Nice Sherlock Holmes hats, though. The #menswear scene probs approves.
