I've been thinking about what I'd like the final scene of Downton to be

And even though its unlikely to happen I’d like it to be similar to the final moments of Desperate Housewives where you see what happened next for them: so we’d see Banna with a couple of children and a small hotel or something, Chelsie happily retired, Baxley married, Thomas finally finding happiness either as butler or with someone to love actually I want both, Daisy taking over Mr Mason’s farm and doing a kickass job of it, Beryl marrying Mr Mason and being constant visitors to both Daisy and the Carson’s. Lady Edith getting to raise Marigold as her daughter and being the toast of London publishing circles, Violet and Isobel still disagreeing and being each others best friend, Isobel will of course be married to Doctor Clarkson. Cora and Robert being blissfully happy, Tom making a success of himself and finally accepting his place in the world. And Mary will be happily married to Henry Talbot being the Downton land agent. We will then see that Sybbie, George and Marigold followed in their parents footsteps during World War Two.
