I was fine with them killing off Matthew. While it would have been fine to recast, it can be jarring to do such a transition (I despised "new Becky" in Roseanne). Recasting Sybil IMO would have been easier.
Mrs. Hughes was all kinds of awesome as usual. Loved seeing Carson with the baby! Loved his "I'm not old!"
It's a credit to the world they've created that I was holding my breath when Jimmy sat in the chair and put his feet up. It was a perfectly shocking moment that in any other context would not rate a mention. Personally if I were a housemaid, I'd have a hard time not taking a little snooze on one of the large beds.
Very little Daisy in this episode - except to show that the passage of time has brought her and Ivy together.
Tom Branson - dog walker Isis is looking like she's gained a few pounds. But with grounds so vast, all you really have to do is throw a stick and let her run after it. Great canine workout.
