See 40 "Costumes of Downton Abbey" in a glorious exhibit open through Jan. 4 at Winterthur, the du Pont family mansion in Delaware.

Lady Sybil's harem pants; Lady Mary's engagement dress; Lady Edith's wedding dress; tea dresses of the three sisters; tuxedos; as well as servants' uniforms and livery from "Downton Abbey" are shown at the 175-room manse, now Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library.

Meanwhile, back at "Downton Abbey", will Lady Mary re-marry? If so, which of her suitors? Will Lady Edith find, and maybe marry Gregson? Will she get back their baby she gave for adoption? Did Mr. Bates avenge Anna's rape? If so, did all the evidence go up in flames?

Fortunately, no need to wait for a "Downtown Abbey" fix. Get thee to Delaware while awaiting Downtown's Series 5.
