Nick Briggs/ITV for Masterpiece

Downton Abbey Review: A Brilliant Set Up

5 February 2012 8:00 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

There were no punches pulled on "this week's episode" of Downton Abbey. In the last 20 minutes especially, every hit landed right where it was aimed and could very easily lead to one heck of a follow up next week.

It is discovered that a friend of Patrick's named Peter Gordon emigrated to Canada and could be faking it now that he's disfigured from the burns. But before any decisions can be made, Patrick/Peter leaves Downton. Lady Edith is heartbroken.
