Similarly, Edith: I’ve grown very fond of her, but this episode showcases some of Edith’s perpetual issues. In crisis, her issues immediately turn to all of her childhood woes that were never addressed; but unfortunately, that doesn’t make her kind or temperate, it just makes her avaricious for better treatment. Her disgust at seeing Jack Ross is a very telling moment for the character—Edith is the type of powerless person that tries to get more power by putting others down. Which is why, I assume, Mary never liked her much. Mary, like Mrs. Hughes, learned long ago that the only way to get power is to act like you have it, right from the start.
