Oh my god! We just finished! I am beside myself! Thank God it's actually on tomorrow night because I don't know what I would do with myself if I couldn't check in with Anna and Mr. Bates...Edith...Violet...and the rest of the gang.
|It's always "Lady Mary,|
Lady Mary, Lady Mary!"
I have to admit - I did love it when she was recognized for being so good with the patients. She deserves to be noticed once in a while...instead of
OK Next...Lady Maaaaary. Bitch, PLEASE! You are beside yourself because Matthew's MIA (for what it's worth, I would be too. Yum.) and then he shows up and you're all "Oh hello cousin. I'm glad to see you. Want to see the china pattern I've picked out with Sir Richard?" Come ON ALREADY! Just pull his ass into the broom closet (or Mrs. Hughes' sitting room, as everything seems to go on in there) and tell him how you feel!! It's obvious he loves you...what are you WAITING for?!?
|Where ya runnin' off to|
this week, Mr. Bates?
And what's up with Sybil? There seem to be no redeeming qualities in Branson, other than the fact that he professes his love for her every five seconds. Is it me or do they have ZERO chemistry together? Ugh. And every time he starts whining about joining the effort in Ireland, I need a Tums. And I'm Irish!! I just don't see Sybil running off with him...but stranger things have happened.
LORDDDDD stranger things have happened.
|Please don't die at war or |
I'll feel even more guilty!
And Violet. Holy hell. She makes me laugh SO hard. Today's hilarious commentary was the following, whilst discussing Sir Richard's blackmailing of Lavinia's uncle:
Mary: He lives in a tough world.
Violet: And will you be joining him there?
I swear, I laugh so hard at everything that comes out of Maggie Smith's mouth...I wish I could zap myself into Downton and sit next to her at dinner. I'd keep my mouth shut and my eyes and ears open, that is for sure.
|Batshit crazy? |
Lastly - Cora. Is it me, or does she seem like she's one foot into the funny farm at all times? When the show first started, I thought she was sick because she never comes down to breakfast and was always laying around in her dressing gown having meals in bed. But now she's always around - dressed to the nines - and smiling uncomfortably no matter whether Carson is brushing MyLord's shoulders or Mrs. Byrd is feeding the veterans with the Army's money. No matter - girlfriend is smiling. I wish I could ask Lafayette from True Blood what he thought of her. "That sista be one crazy bitch, Hooka". Can't you just hear him now?!
OK - more soon...tomorrow night, actually! TGIS!!!!
