    I'm scared for Edith. She deserves some unsullied happiness for once. Let the writers pick on someone else, like Sybil, who seems to have coasted through the show with very little hindrance so far.

    Oh, you wait 'till 1922, her husband is way to vocal about the irish cause to escape unharmed, to say the least.

    In the episode before this one, I thought Edith was being pretty mature and realistic about the situation to her father when he told Lord Strallen to go packing. She said something along the lines about how so many young men had been killed during the war and she wanted to take her chances at happiness while it was still there. It seemed to make an impression on Lord Grantham, but now he seems to have forgotten all about it. As much as I'd like Edith to marry someone fabulously rich, handsome and charming, I imagine those men were in short supply post-WWI!

    I don't GET the Grantham's sometime. The MIL was right; they need a slap about the head and an admonition to remember that the world is changing.

    Speaking of which, isn't Matthew going to inherit all of Downton Abbey eventually anyway? He has as much of a vested interested in seeing the place succeed as Mary does, but he seemed to treat the whole thing as if it wasn't his problem. It's a large chunk of his inheritance, and while he's definitely independently well-off, one would think he'd want to consider the long-term consequences of letting Downton go. And I don't get the whole "You'll invest in the place and it will become yours as well as mine" talk. It was going to become his anyway, so why the fuss? :p
