The series finale of “Downton Abbey” is Sunday night but that does not mean the characters do not carry on with their lives.
Here is a glimpse of what happened with some of the major players post-DA:
Mrs. Patmore: Moved to Nevada where brothels are legal, and opened her own house of ill repute, Patmore’s Playpen.
Mr. Carson: Became an eyebrow transplant donor.
Mrs. Hughes: Was acquitted of assault after beating Carson within an inch of his life with a spatula after he complained one too many times about her cooking.
Anna and Mr. Bates: They lived happily ever after. No, seriously. Really.
Mary: Underwent heart transplant surgery to install the one she did not have.
Cora: Successfully underwent surgery to have more than one facial expression.
Mr. Barrows: Joined a punk goth band. (Tell me you can’t see it…)
Edith: Founded an app dating service called Losr that connects people who are destined to be in ruined relationships.
Lord Grantham: Known for his financial acumen, Robert became homeless after investing with Bernie Madoff.
Mr. Molesly: Became a rugby player after deciding it was less of a contact sport than teaching the children from the village.

Tom: Presidential campaign manager for socialist candidate Bernie Sanders.
Spratt: Moved to the United States where he started a successful advice column under the nom de plume “Ann Landers.”
Denker: Joined Darth Vader’s Imperial forces as a stormtrooper and was killed in her first battle. No one misses her.
The Dowager: Became chief ruthlessness officer in the Nixon White House.
Dr. Clarkson: Exasperated and frustrated, he decided humans were way too much of a pain to deal with and became a veterinarian.

Lady Rosamund: Runs a home for wayward single mothers.
Isobel: Created a line of bobble head dolls that say “I told you so.”
