Downton Abbey 3×2

The season proceeds apace!

 

Spoilers:

1. I’m not sure about this whole Edith/Anthony thing.  I think it’s clear Edith would be happy with anything that got her attention, her own house, validity.  Does Anthony still really like her now that she’s being all brazen and managing with him instead of listening and letting her teach her stuff?  I suppose there’ s no real reason why not, but it’d have been good to.. ya know, actually see something else they get from each other.  Also, I’m worried about Anthony’s survival.  He’s always saying things about his age and survival and it feels jinxing.

-On a side note, what the hell with Crawley?  His daughter’s about to be poor and turned out of her house, he has no business turning away any suitors, let alone well off ones with titles.  It’s just silly.  Let Mrs. Bennet at him!

 

2. The Valet Wars commence!  The move with the evening shirts stepped over a line as it got the upstairs folk involved, though.  Less fun that way.

 

3. I love the hair plumes and trinkets this episode!

 

4. I love Mrs. Hughes’ views on life and stiff upper lip.  I salute her.

 

5. Bates ALWAYS chooses the worst possible, least logical times to get aggressive.  You have to live with this person, you have to fall asleep, there’s no real reason to bother in his business…just stop it.  It shows very clearly his trend of being noble when it just causes trouble and hostile when it’ll be most disastrous.  I’m kindof done with his character.  I still do approve of Anna, though.

 

6. I dearly want Carson to get accidentally picked up by the Doctor or something and find himself in Ancient Rome.  Everyone’s lounging on couches!  Punch!  Augh!  If he survives the culture shock of the first few weeks he’d fit right in and doubtless wind up in politics via attaching himself to political people.  Someone needs to write this fanfic.  Pretty please?? With an orgy on the side?

 

7.  Maggie Smith is hilarious when she’s trying to be diplomatic.

 

8. There should always be insults about clothing that affect both downstairs and upstairs!  It’s been a trend so far this season, and I’d like to see all the reasons they could come up with to continue.  Perhaps someone will attend Edith’s wedding looking as if they’re at a funeral?  Or a woman’s stocking will wind up showing inappropriately, to bring them in on this?  Ruined plumes?
