Someone get Carson, it's arrived. Today we get a tantalizing — and "a little bootleg," as Vulture notes — glimpse of season three of Downton Abbey.

Shirley MacLaine is here in all of her American glory, apparently the "money is gone," and — in our opinion, most upsettingly — Lady Mary and Matthew Crawley are having problems. Can't those two crazy kids just catch a break?
