Downton Abbey The war is over

02/06/2012 12:19:41 AM

Is this the soapiest Downton Abbey has gotten so far? What is next, an evil twin?


The big story Downton Abbey Seasons 1-2 DVD this week is that a badly--burned officer going by the name Patrick Gordon is claiming to be Patrick Crawley. His story is that he was rescued from the waters after the Titanic sank and was taken to Canada, but didn not remember who he was until an explosion during the war. He woke up and remembered he was Patrick Crawley.

Naturally, Lady Edith believes him (because she really wants to) and Lady Mary says no way. Robert is suspicious and has his lawyer look into it, It is discovered that a friend of Patrick's named Peter Gordon emigrated to Canada and could be faking it now that he is disfigured from the burns. But before any decisions can be made. Patrick/Peter leaves Downton. Lady Edith is heartbroken.

Here's how we feel about this - the entire plot is rather silly and unnecessary. Not only is it the soapiest that this show has gotten so far (seriously, what's next? An evil twin?), but it isn't resolved. He just leaves. It is a weird diversion and probably out least favorite thing this show has ever done.

The other big plot is that Sir Richard has purchased nearby Hacksby Park for himself and Mary to live in once they are married. He wants to poach Carson to come run the place and Carson agrees to do it, because he's so fond of Mary. Sir Richard also does some scheming with Lady Cora to bring Lavinia back to Matthew because Mary and Matthew are spending far too much time together during his rehab.

In other upstairs news, Lady Violet hilariously manipulates Cousin Isobels focus from keeping Downton open to working with the war refugees. And Matthew may have felt some tingling in his legs.


The bombshell is that in light of still not being able to get a divorce, Mr. Bates goes to see his wife in London, comes home with a scratch on his face and news to Anna of how awful it was, and then Vera turns up dead. Dun dun dun. Did he kill her? Did she kill herself and frame him? We would not put that past her. We're also 99% sure he wouldn't kill her, but there is a small part of us that thinks he would - he did wish that she was "the late" Mrs. Bates.

In other storylines, Mrs Hughes is still sneaking food to Ethel, but Carson rats her out to Lady Cora. Once they learn that Major Mustache has been killed, though, Cora is ready to cut off ties to Ethel, while Ethel wants to try to contact Mustache's parents.

Thoughts & Tidbits

•About other little things, we have noticed that while Lord and Lady Grantham seem to be moving farther apart, Lord Grantham and new maid Jane seem to be charming the pants off each other. We hope that doesn't become literally true.
•We wish which had been more Sybil and Branson this week, but at least we got a snippet I'd wait forever."
•How lovely was that last scene between Carson and Robert! both two of them, framed in the doorway. Lovely.

•Honestly,Downton Abbey DVD it is probably our least favorite episode of the play so far. We still love the show with all our heart, but it just wasn't its best effort.

Downton fans,What do you think?
