The first episode of the new season was outstanding! I know it’s not a comedy, but there were so many funny scenes and lines. I recorded it so I can watch it again before next week’s episode.
Answers to your questions:
1. Mary and Matthew finally quit messing around and really messed around. Wonder if Matthew was as good in bed as the one that died there. LOL What a twist it would have been if Matthew had died in her bed, too. She’d never get a husband in that case – or a lover even.
2. Love, love, love the clashing between the Countess Dowager and Mrs. Crawley. So glad that it’s continuing on. I have to say that Mrs. Crawley almost make the Countess Dowager look pretty, don’t you think? hehe
3. The addition of Shirley McClain as an American is entertaining. Love her quips and barbs. It think she will be a great addition to the series.
The Downton Abbey theme song is “Did I Make the Most of Loving You” and in my opinion is best as an instrumental.
Regarding Bates: You go, Bates! Tell that cell mate just what you think. Although, that may get you in trouble later.
I think there is a possibility with the current money problems that the Countess Dowager may finally find out what a weekend is.
On another subject: I’m boiling eggs and using the timer with the magnet that stays on the refrigerator. I’m thinking that it’s yours. If so, sorry, but na na na na na na!
Oh – and yesterday’s Sky Scarf row was blue and white. Today’s is two blues. Looks like the rest of the week will probably be grey. Bummer!
