Grab a tissue before watching the latest trailer for Downton Abbey! While the period drama doesn’t return until 2013, the season three preview tugs at our heartstrings—complete with emotive choir music in the background. In a romantic embrace, Matthew (Dan Stevens) tells Mary (Michelle Dockery), “I’ll never be happy with anyone else as long as you walk the earth.” What a line! And by the looks of it, we’re expecting a darker season to unfold for the Crawley family and staff all-around. View the trailer above, then tune into PBS on January 6, 2013 for new episodes of the 16-time Emmy nominationed show.
