Upstairs:

EDITH IS PREGNANT AND SHE’S KEEPING THE BABY, PEOPLE. But her significant other, Michael Gregson, is still mysteriously missing. If he ends up dead, the Grantham spawn will officially be cursed with forever losing their loved ones in freak accidents.

Robert “went to America” (aka filming The Monuments Men) while Rose sat in a canoe with Jack Ross, the only reoccurring black male character. This plot-line feels very forced to me. Instead of focusing on the romance of her whirlwind relationship, the show focuses more on the scandal of it all.

The Dowager Countess fell ill with bronchitis, and her frenemy/nemesis Isobel Crawley nursed her back to health. While Violet ran a fever and cursed at her caretaker, Isobel smirked at the fact that she will be able to say she saved Violet’s life.

By the end of this week’s show, they were playing cards like old friends.

Lady Mary — who has never let a speck of dirt touch her porcelain skin — had a mud fight with Charles Blake. Since every man she interacts with is a potential suitor, this was an interesting scene. Because Blake is actively trying to dismember her estate farm by farm, he is not exactly her friend. Although, this could create some perfectly awkward sexual tension. They share a special moment — and by which I mean they looked at each other five seconds longer than normal — until they were interrupted by Ivy.

Downstairs:

Not too much is happening downstairs this week, but the servants take part in their usual hijinks.

While Daisy and Ivy bickered over Alfred’s return visit, Mrs. Hughes and Carson tried to keep the hormones at bay. Which never works.

Anna’s rapist, Mr. Green, ominously returned to Downton just as pompous as ever. His comments to Mrs. Hughes blaming Anna for the assault were eerie and uncomfortable. Mr. Bates has confirmed his suspicions about who attacked and raped his wife after he sees Anna reaction to Mr. Green’s presence.

We are all scared as to what he will do next.

“I’m married, I know everything.” – Lady Mary
