At the close of yet another season, the popular drama concludes with a quiet sigh and not a traumatic roar.

I am no stranger to nerdery. I’m a band geek, a theater kid, and an unapologetic fan of all things Harry Potter. But my nerdery took to new heights on Friday night, when I headed off to the Fayetteville Free Library in Fayetteville, NY for their annual Downton Abbey finale party and fundraiser.

In the second to last episode of the season, many characters are standing on the precipice of personal growth and change. The question is: will they jump in?

In the penultimate episode of Downton Abbey’s fourth season, it seems like everyone is at a crossroads. I guess that’s what happens when you’re setting up for a season finale though, right?

For several characters, the choice that lies ahead will involve a serious step across that proverbial line the Downton crew has been toeing for years: the line that separates their cherished past from the uncertain future.

As the current season is unfolding, the characters of Downton show a new light with the women all the while growing stronger.

Mrs. Hughes is everyone’s savior. She is everyone’s mother, everyone’s friend, everyone’s confidante. As Downton Abbey’s guiding light, she provides both a sensible moral compass and a gentle, loving touch of friendship for characters in need.

As the new season begins, the women of Downton start to experience new found levels of power, influence and camaraderie.

Join me as I raise a glass to the ladies of Downton Abbey. The new season is all about female empowerment and friendship.
