While this is all old news to our friends in the original viewing country (and everyone who didn't let the US's delayed showing stop them), can we discuss this season and the season finale?
Because I screamed and pounded the walls with joy when Carson told Mrs. Hughes he wanted to be stuck with her. I don't think I was this happy even when Anna and Mr. Bates got together. I'd hoped they were going this direction with the whole "business venture".
Bates and Anna- can we call them star-crossed lovers? Because they're married and everything but fate clearly wants one of them to be in jail or miserable at any given time.
Marigold- An open secret at Downton pretty much. I'm sure Mary and the staff will figure it out before too long. Edith isn't exactly subtle.
Dowager Countess- I need to learn new languages so I can proclaim my love for her in more than just the one. Mistress of the withering stare (and apparently former mistress of a Russian aristocrat. Scandalous!) Also, I love her friendship with Isobel in the show.
Mary- Still finding it impossible to meet a man without flirty banter and inevitable romance. That poor woman.
Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes- HAVE I MENTIONED HOW THRILLED I AM?
So GT, what are your thoughts?
