downton abbey thomas

My relationship with my problematic faves
  • Me: omg yes he's a terrible person I do not approve of any of his life choices he's an asshole 0/10 would NOT recommend he deserves every bad thing in the world he's absolutely terrible in fact i would personally murder him myself if i could
  • anybody else: *says the exact same thing*
  • me: excuse me bitch
There's seven chairs and ten people. What do you do?
  • Mrs.Patmore: Have everyone stand.
  • Mrs.Hughes: Bring three more chairs.
  • Carson: The best seven of the lot can sit down.
  • Thomas: Kill three.

someone: what are you thinking about?

me, internally: the entirety of downton abbey is essentially thomas’s redemption arc. at the start of series 1 he is presented as a villain, but his character development is phenomenal. his friendship with jimmy and his unrequited love make him more relatable to the audience, and when he saves jimmy we feel more of a connection to his character. although he then attempts to blackmail baxter, he also saves edith from the fire and tries to protect jimmy from being caught and then fired. his emotional connection to the children makes him seem even more human and relatable, and by the end of series 6 we ultimately want him to be happy and that makes me so emotional

me: nothing :)
