Each week, Slate’s culture critic and Outward editor June Thomas will chat with frequent contributor Seth Stevenson to dissect the latest developments on the new season of Downton Abbey.
In this installment of the podcast, Thomas and Stevenson discuss Lord Grantham’s tearful farewell to Isis, Lady Edith’s short reign over the publishing house, and whether Atticus and Rose’s new engagement will really last.
