I don't watch the show - I don't *need* to watch the show

I've never seen the show, but noticed, out of the corner of my eye, that Slate now wonders aloud why "Downton Abbey" is so cruel.
But when the episode was entering its final minutes, and we were enjoying that lovely tableau of the new parents and their bonny baby—a son and heir at last—I told myself we’d avoided the worst and that his departure would be effected off-screen or at the beginning of Season 4. But no, the happiest man alive—a man, let’s not forget, who is driven around by a chauffeur 95 percent of the time—found himself in a motor-vehicle accident and now lies dead at the side of the road. 

And I was wondering, you know - how is Patton Oswalt taking this?  Not well, it turns out...
