Season four came to a close last night, leaving us relieved that we didn’t lose any of our favorite characters to brutal childbirth or sudden car crashes. In fact, we ended much like season two – with hope and love in the air.
The family travels to London for Rose’s coming out and American visitors shake things up.
When Mrs. Hughes asks Anna if she has any extra clothing for Russian refugees, Anna donates Bates’s old overcoat. Mrs. Hughes finds a ticket in the pocket, revealing what we all feared – Bates was in London the day Mr. Green died. She relays the information to Mary, who at first seems compelled to turn Bates in. Nonetheless, when Bates proves his loyalty to the family once again (more on this later), Mary tosses the ticket in the fire.
