Downton Abbey Episode 6.4

Last week on Downton Abbey...

Rebecca T and Jenn N chat about the previous episode. Join in in the comments!

Rebecca T: So Carson and Mrs. ... Carson/Hughes are back and Mrs. Hughes-Carson looks a little pale and hesitant when Carson says their going to keep their original names (and really Robert? Did you have to act quite so relieved?). I'm just curious if something didn't go well on the honeymoon.

Jenn N: Mrs. Hughes-Carson did seem a little uneasy upon her return. It's realistic to me though. Suddenly merging your life when you've grown accustomed to being on your own for so long is hard no matter how much you love the other person.

Rebecca T: That's a good point. It would be a big life change for both of them. It will be interesting to see how they settle in over the next few weeks.

Jenn N: I hope Anna and Bates remain on their path to happiness.

Rebecca T: Yes! I'm so glad they made it to the doctor in time and Bates' face when he learned the news was the sweetest thing. So adorable. It was also great seeing Gwen again. So nice getting to see where her life has gone since she left.

Jenn N: It was cool seeing Gwen. I had forgotten that it was Sybil who helped her. It was a nice way to remember her.

Rebecca T: That part made me cry. It was so sweet and I agree that it was a great way to remember Sybil's legacy.

Jenn N: I loved Tom's crack about his he married the bosses daughter to put Gwen at ease.

Rebecca T: I was so glad they managed to turn Thomas' evil plan on its head and it came back to bite him in the behind. It drives me crazy that he gets all worked up over the fact that no one likes him and then turns around and does something like that. He's putting himself out of a job and I have pretty much zero sympathy for him! But I am scared as to what he might do out of this raging jealousy. I'm also scared that Robert is going to die before the end of the series, and that would really tick me off.

Jenn N: I'm concerned about Robert too. I'm suspecting he may have a heart attack. Hopefully it won't be fatal but given that everyone is starting to seem too happy around Downton, this normally leads to despair.

Rebecca T: I don't know if it makes it better or worse to know this is the last season! I can see how they're winding things up, and I'm hoping it will be mainly happy endings, but they've never shied away from death or tragedy either.

So what do you think? What's coming up this week? We can't wait to find out!
