Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) goes shooting with the boys.  Could this mean she's finally chosen Lord Gillingham (Tom Cullen) has her sole suitor, or that there'll be a new, full fledged love triangle between them and Tom (Allen Leech)?

BONUS: Can you notice the anachronism that caused ITV to remove this photo of Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael) and Robert (Hugh Bonneville) after its initial release?

Downton Abbey returns stateside Jan. 4, 2015 on PBS.
