|~Edith and Violet have a chat~|
Though Violet probably tried her best, she came up wanting in her discussion with Edith about it (the baby). And Edith is mighty prickly.
"practical Monarchist." She knows that the Prince is something of a scamp and she doesn't trust him not to run himself off the rail.
The second effort works! Who knew that Bates is also a pickpocket?!
Now there are many other stories floating about...so many. Please feel free to pick up a thread and run with it. Do you wish to discuss Edith's story with Mr. Drew? Mary's story with her Desire of Suitors? The Lord Asygarth and his daughter Madeleine Allsopp's story? Harold and Madeleine's story? (What an odd couple!)The ongoing Thomas/Tom antagonisms? The catching of Sarah and Tom by Thomas in the Gallery? The ticket in the coat pocket? Mary's decision concerning same. Oh my! Any one of these could lead us a long way down a number of paths. Any specific quotes?
I thought I'd mourn Matthew forever. Now I know that is not true. There'll be a new life for me. ~Mary to Gillingham
Oh please do share more!
I found a clip on PBS where the stars of the show discussed whom Mary should choose. Fun!
But let us wrap this puppy up with a bow. Cora asked Carson to plan an outing for the staff because of all the extra "kerfuffle." That's another story you might wish to discuss.

You can always hold my hand to steady yourself...We're getting on, you and I, we can afford to live a little.
