The Treacherous Days Before Blood Pressure Cuffs
Well, Lord Grantham killed Sybil last night and it was rough.
But interesting! I'm glad for this exciting turn of events because I was starting to get a little bored with Downton. They have grossly overestimated our affection for Bates. I was totally into him like everyone else in season 1, but now I find it boring to watch him read letters and mope. Also overestimated: the hotness of Matthew and Lady Mary as a couple.
It's very sad to say goodbye to Sybil. She was spunky and progressive. But now there's lots of interesting stuff going on where Cora blames Robert (and she should—He privileged the diagnosis of a fancier doctor instead of listening to Dr. Clarkson—big mistake) and now the chauffeur is just hanging out at Downton and can't return to Ireland. And there's also the baby girl, who will raise her? Maybe mommy blogger Matthew Crawley, who seeks fertility treatments after "trying" for one month. He's got big plans for the nursery. You should see his Pinterest board.
I like where this is going!
