Spoilers ahead. 

If you took a break from NYFW and Valentine's Day festivities to watch "Downton Abbey," kudos to you. Really, the show is kind of a combination of both concepts, right? Fashion plus romance. (Well, except for that car crash.) 

On this, the third-to-last episode of the series, we saw Carson finally get his comeuppance in the kitchen; Mary and Edith went in completely different directions with their love lives; we found out that the new lady editor is both badass and likable, and finally, finally, we saw Anna looking happy and glowing for a change. Oh, and the biggest fashion news? Lady Mary wore sunglasses. I don't believe a character has worn sunglasses (I'm certain someone will correct me if I'm wrong — please do) on the show before, unless you count driving goggles. It's big news, people.
