Love in many forms comes and goes, a fact of life that we’ve seen over and over again in Downton Abbey. There’s been a lot of heartbreak on this show; Sybil and Tom Branson, Edith and Michael Gregson, Mary and Matthew, Robert and his beloved dog Isis, to name just a few. But there has also been found love.
