The UK import 'Downton Abbey' aired its season three finale (an episode that was broadcast as the Christmas special in the UK) last night on PBS, and a last-minute twist left many viewers distraught.


Only a few episodes after beloved younger sister Sybil died giving birth to her first child, main character Matthew Crawley died (presumably) in a car crash in the last few minutes of the episode, shortly after his wife Mary had given birth to their son.

Many "Downton" fans were none too pleased with this latest death on the show and turned to social media to vent their frustrations and discuss other recent plot developments. Here are 10 of the best tweets about the finale and the third season as a whole.

--"So is Downton Abbey secretly written by Joss Whedon?" --@kevahearn (Sci-fi TV show creator and "The Avengers" director Whedon is notorious for killing off beloved characters.)

--"Just saw the Xmas Special of Downton Abbey. If that is their idea of a Xmas Special, then the producers must be some sick, sick people." --@Amj_Singh
