Re: Downton Abbey Appreciation Thread - series 3 out FINALLY

episode 3 was kind of a snooze... poor Edith, but she had it coming after all the shit she pulled in season 1.

Re: Downton Abbey Appreciation Thread - series 3 out FINALLY

I am just so, so, so pissed at Julian Fellowes doing that Edith. Lord, I just want her to be happy, and I liked Anthony too.
And of course Mary would open that letter. As if that shit was staying secret.

what the hell is with the former servant/prostitute that keeps coming up to Matthew's mother? She better not try to claim that Matthew is the father of her child!

No we know who the baby daddy is, it was a soldier who stayed at the house.

Poor Edith I think she will eventually have some kind of happy ending. I hope.

Re: Downton Abbey Appreciation Thread - series 3 out FINALLY

I thought it was pretty obvious from the moment the letter was delivered that it was the solution.
The actress playing Edith acted very well I thought. Especially in the scenes after she was left at the altar.

Re: Downton Abbey Appreciation Thread - series 3 out FINALLY

God can Julian kill off Bates? Seriously? It's so boring - more Shirley McClaine and less Mr Bates
This ep is the worst out of the four

Re: Downton Abbey Appreciation Thread - series 3 out FINALLY

That was..... unexpected. I guess she sorta had become a useless character and was expendable, but I liked her so much

Re: Downton Abbey Appreciation Thread - series 3 out FINALLY

This series has become more ludicrous and fanciful with each episode. It's about as realistic as an old Hollywood musical. Time to pull the plug.

Re: Downton Abbey Appreciation Thread - series 3 out FINALLY

WTF So sad Sybil died, she was my favourite sister. I actually thought when this series began that Tom would be killed off but not Sybil.

I cried when Cora was sitting beside her alone, so sad

I have found other episodes way more unrealistic than that last one. Apart from a known prostitute finding employment I can't see what else could be considered unrealistic.

Re: Downton Abbey Appreciation Thread - series 3 out FINALLY

I just can't with JF killing off Sybil while DRONING on Mr Bates. I mean
I just CANNOT right now. Sybil and Branson can have lots of good and fun things to talk about and now it's over

Maggie Smith is awesome. She has totally demonstrated her prowess as an actress in the last 15 minutes
