Downton Abbey is back, and hoo-boy! Or, rather, hoo-lady! It is back with a vengeance! Well, at least with a sideways glance combined with a snide one-upper during afternoon tea.
This season has the makings of being all about Edith. Edith, Edith, Edith. Edith and her bastard baby. And is it hot in here, or did someone just set the Abbey on fire? Prompting the best line of the evening from Lady Mary:
Lady Edith chose to set fire to her room, but we’re fine.
Ah, Mary. You just run upstairs to take off your hat and leave the drama to the less…lovely. By the way, how’s that indecent proposal coming along? Mistress Mary has quite a nice ring to it, don’t you think?
Anyway, Downton Abbey. Sigh. You just never know who Bates will kill this season. (My money’s on Miss Sarah Bunting, but I’d take a Jonathan, too.)by
