SPOILER ALERT: Why Twitter wept over last night's Downton Abbey

If you don’t watch Downton Abbey, there are also come cute pictures of baby animals.

WERE YOU WATCHING?

Were you shocked? How could they? How could they do it?

If you’re a Downton Abbey fan, and you haven’t seen the latest episode, or if you plan on watching it in the future, then don’t read any more, because there are serious spoilers on the way.

To save you from such horrors, here are some pictures of cute baby animals, but STOP when you get to the sloth. After that, we’re not responsible for what you see.

HERE COMES THE SLOTH. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. DON’T GO PAST THE SLOTH IF YOU DON’T WANT A SPOILER.

Okay, it’s safe to talk.

Twitter was aflame with emotion last night as one of Downton Abbey’s most beloved characters Lady Sybil died after giving birth to a baby girl.

Sybil and her Irish husband Tom won our hearts with their romantic tryst and the daredevil way they eloped to get married. Sybil was the kind of woman who’d make you forget your own name if she smiled at you. RIP.

The rest of Twitter was similarly traumatised, and the show’s own account got in on the drama:

RIP Lady Sybil.
