Poor Edith, all I could think when Mary was mucking about with the mud and the pigs was that she was going to get yet another admirer out of it and if it were Edith all she would get would be tetanus.

So Edith

  • has been separated from both lover and daughter.
  • doesn’t invite anyone to the anniversary party as she has no friends, apparently.
  • is a moody so-and-so during said party (and who can blame her?)
  • is miserable in general (again, who can blame her?).
  • uses GREGSON’S BOOK to start the Downton fire.
  • ends up ruining only HER room while the rest of the abbey stays fine.

SERIES FIVE IS GOING TO BE SO MUCH FUN.
