Welcome back to Downton Abbey and what's sure to be another year of delicious upstairs/downstairs drama. Come, let's see what Series 5 has in store for our beloved Crawley family, shall we?
Note for U.S. Viewers: Downton Abbey returns to PBS for Season 5 on January 4, 2015. We'll be repromoting Naz's recaps then, so feel free to wait to read them until that time to remain unspoiled.
Note: This post contains SPOILERS for all aired episodes of Downton Abbey, including last night's Series 5, Episode 5. Enjoy!
This week, we start with Rosamund coming over to the Abbey for a visit. Now we all know that’s a ruse! She’s probably there to figure out what’s going on with Edith! And, of course, she is. She tells Edith to come see her in her room before dinner. Uh oh! Any way, Rosamund finds out that Marigold is staying with the Drewes, and that Mrs. Drewe is not too keen about Edith stopping by all the time. She tells Edith that they are in a bad position, where Edith’s reputation is on the line, but there is no emotional reward at the end. I hope she can figure something out. I’m honestly tired of Edith being miserable all the time.
