“I don’t need to be stirred or squashed.” – Downton Abbey 6×02

This episode left me with more questions than answers.

  1. First of all, Anna, don’t you think it’s about time to stop moping about life and just lighten up a bit? It’s like you didn’t even relish your freedom from suspicion and possible incarceration (wrongful, it’s true)! I mean, I know it’s gotta be tough with wanting to have a baby and not being able to, but don’t you think it’s all your constant depression and refusal to even smile a bit that’s contributing to it? All that stress! Celebrate the small things!
  2. Why the hell was no one watching Marigold? Who lets go of a child’s hand in the middle of a crowd? Is it because kidnapping hadn’t been invented yet, so no one thought to just hold on to this child?
  3. Dear Mrs. Drew, you do know Marigold is NOT. YOUR. CHILD. Right? Right?
  4. Oh Lady Mary. Mary, Mary, Mary. Will you ever stop being a pill, even for just, oh I don’t know, the last few episodes ever of Downton? Can you let Mrs. Hughes, the effing bride, decide how she wants her own effing wedding to go?
  5. Lady Violet, where were you? I almost forgot you were in this episode! Where is my post title going to come from now? (We have to thank Cora for the title this time.)

So that’s episode 2 down, and the end is getting closer and closer! Whyyy.
