While Downton Abbey Season 6 has already aired in England, the season premiere is still a few days away for fans of the show who are watching in the United States. For those who just can’t wait to know what happens, though, here are some spoilers to get you ready for the upcoming season!

To whet your appetites for the show, PBS has released a special sneak peak clip to watch! The clip features Lady Mary Crawley and her father, Lord Grantham, as the prepare to ride off on a hunt.

Lady Mary embodies a modern woman as she sits upon her horse wearing trousers, leaving the long riding skirts and sidesaddle behind. Lord Grantham is clearly not too pleased about it, and can’t resist making a comment, saying “Do you really like riding like that? When a sidesaddle is much more graceful?”

Mary isn’t having any of that though in Downton Abbey Season 6, and replies that while a sidesaddle may be more graceful, it’s also “so much more dangerous.” The lady’s trousers aren’t the most interesting part of the clip, however; that falls to the woman standing on the sidelines.

As the group of hunters begins their ride, Lady Mary takes notice of a mysterious woman standing off to the side with the locals. Asking her father who she is, the woman has clearly taken note of Lady Mary as well and doesn’t seem to be too thrilled with her.

While the mysterious woman stares daggers at Mary, Lord Grantham responds that he doesn’t know who she is, but that he doesn’t believe her to be one of the farmers wives. The identity of the woman remains a mystery, and we surely can’t wait for the new season to air so we can find out who she is, and why Mary seems to have caught her ire!

Meanwhile, we are also left wondering about the fate of Bates and Anna, as we are still waiting for closure on Anna’s attack. Brendan Coyle, who plays Bates, has promised plenty of drama ahead for the pair in Downton Abbey Season 6.

The actor spoke about his character’s onscreen relationship, saying that “to have a happily married couple becomes a bit boring. So they had to give us obstacles and conflict. It’s all part of the drama. Do they achieve happiness finally? I can’t say.”
