Downton Abbey, Episode 3.6

Written by Julian Fellows

Directed by David Evans

Many have lodged the complaint that Downton Abbey has established a trademark habit of introducing a problem one week only to resolve it by the following episode.  The slow burn is not exactly a technique the show has mastered.  Occasionally, the odd storyline receives some extra time to breathe.  And this particular edition sees the last of the simmering conflicts come to a boil.  Sadly, the lid gets slammed down on most of them before any serious consequences spill out.

Ever since Matthew bailed the family out of the financial sinkhole Lord Grantham created with his bad investment, a blow-up has been brewing between father-in-law and son-in-law.  However, Robert’s long awaited chagrin at having the last vestiges of his pride stripped away amounts to little more than one or two heated scenes and some subsequent huffing and pouting. »
