Well, not sure what the point of watching this now. We all know that Simon was the reason why most of us were watching this :/

I dont normally care about this stuff but I cannot even imagine this show without @regejean .I realize the focus turns in season two but please don’t kill him off. Look what that did to @DowntonAbbey . It was never the same after Matthew died. His #dukeofhastings was pure magic.
