I very much liked the story lines for Mrs. Hughes. How she dealt with the Edna and Thomas affair was fantastic! I loved how the old Duchess told Tom her sweet story of grief and dropping things. I found it very moving. Mrs. Hughes is becoming my favorite. I am not usually a fan of the downstairs stories. This is changing.
That I care so much for Tom is a testament to some awfully good writing and acting.
I loved when Isobel said that she loved Mary.
And then when Mary said her head was still full of Matthew.
(As it should be so soon.)
I don't hate Rose as much as I use to...I'm glad she is not so much of a brat.
Oh my! How the family freaked out when she danced with the 'black man." (I wonder if the word would have been negro?) The singer has kind eyes but I hate the make up on him and really didn't care for his voice.
I really do not care a bit for the whole Ivy, Daisy, Alfred thing. snoozefest.
Again we see a quick shot of the babies...off in their prams.
Gosh...no wonder they do not have relationships with their parents.
So below you will see a few quotes I found especially fine.
Mrs. Patmore: Sometimes you can spend too long on a one sided love.
Mrs. Hughes: We were mad as hatters to let her (Edna) back in the house
