I won't spoil the Downton Abbey finale for you, but mmmmohmygod Edith. It's been about her all along.

Life's going just as well for Laura Carmichael, the actress who plays the third-place Crawley sister, given how she was spotted in London on Saturday with costar Michael Fox, AKA Andy Parker, the dyslexic footman (!!!). They're dating, according to Us Weekly, which leaves a whole fancy dinner party's worth of people gutted, including but not limited to Daisy, the Marquess of Hexham, Thomas before he got soft, and everybody who realizes how pretty Lady Edith is IRL.

Remember when Andy suddenly got hot in the last episode, and Daisy was like "Whoa" when she saw him hammering that roof in a T-shirt? Yeah. She wasn't the only one.
