As a member of Slate Plus, you’ll get access to our Spoiler Special podcasts—including our newly launched series about Season 5 of PBS’s Downton Abbey! This Spoiler podcast will be available for Slate Plus members the moment each Downton episode ends at 10 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Each week, Slate’s culture critic and Outward editor June Thomas will chat with frequent contributor Seth Stevenson to dissect the latest developments on the new season of Downton Abbey.  

In this installment of the podcast, Thomas and Stevenson discuss Lord Grantham’s feelings toward Marigold, poor Anna’s arrest, and what ­­plotlines could be finally resolved in the Christmas episode.

This podcast contains major spoilers, so listen after you watch each episode.
