Played by: Michelle Dockery and Dan Stevens Where we left off: Injured in the war, Matthew returns to Downton with no hope of walking again, but also a new fiance, Lavinia, on his arm. While Matthew miraculously recovers, Lavinia contracts the flu and dies -- after she sees Matthew and Mary embracing and confessing their love for each other. Mary also almost marries the dour Richard Carlisle. What to expect: For starters, a wedding ... after years and years of I love you and I love you nots/maybes. So, sigh of relief there. But it's not all happiness as the couple clashes over how to handle Downton's money trouble and faces issues starting a family. Will these two ever be happy?
