Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Raquel Cassidy ...
Thomas Barrow (as Robert James-Collier)


Violet and Rosamund tell an angry Cora Edith's secret, which she promises to keep from Robert. Atticus brings his parents to stay, his mother being charming but his father less than happy that he wants to marry the non-Jewish Rose. Atticus suggests ringing Edith at the publishers but instead Cora goes to London and brings Edith and her daughter home, passing Marigold off as a deceased friend's child. Tom decides to take his daughter to live in America with his cousin whilst John and Anna contemplate running a hotel. They are not wholly satisfied with Baxter's reluctance to give him an alibi, unaware of her past, but both Molesley and Barrow champion her. Blake, about to be posted abroad, helps Mary get rid of Tony's attentions whilst Isobel agrees to marry Lord Merton. However his vile son Larry, seeing Isobel as beneath his class, insults her and the Crawleys and is thrown out of the abbey. Atticus also proposes to Rose. Written by don @ minifie-1

"Poooooor Edith"
5 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We need to see Lady Edith's capabilities. We know she has good ones, but they are rarely shown. The Marigold Issue would have more substance if it was tied with it.

Lady Mary is in a quest to find a marriage bounded with love, and the more she "researches", the more she refuses. And in this episode she finally tosses the latter try out. I hope Blake's departure isn't one like Gregson's. It's a bad time to be in Poland, you know. Kinda... Ship them, to be sincere.

Violet Crawley sees herself losing grip with the before-unlikely-friendship with Lady Isobel Crawley, I mean, Isobel bloody Merton. Dr. Clarkson seemed the obvious choice, Isobel had the practice of nursing, a very exciting direction, and it's sad too see her incline for a generic Lord. Yeah, I'm fond of him too, but wouldn't you prefer the understanding Dr. Clarkson? "Harsh reality is always better than false hope."

And in the kitchens a star shines: go, Daisy, go! She grew such a potential in this season, going from a kitchen maid that only blushed with romantics aspirations from a avid thinker. "Education is power". People around her will never let her give up. Mr. Mosley deserves more good things in his life; he is pure in his doings, ingenuous, almost in a child-like manner. I'm already missing Mrs. Bunting, for both Daisy's party and from Tom's love-sh-arc.

Oh, Spratt. Is more than expected from DA to give life and sub-plots simple butlers- and other servants- , keeping things rich and dynamic.

Isis and Edith, the first getting more attention the the latter. With real problems and a destroyed heart, "poooooor Edith" - as Cora would say - consumes herself with the only thing that matters: Love.

Everybody's problems are being crossed; by accidents or by will. I love this kind of development because forces the characters to interact in other levels. But the episode goes everywhere and at the same time nowhere. Was a good one, some emotion spikes here and there, but no conclusions of sorts. Each little sub-plot is dragging, waiting to some big event to make them explode. But I don't care. I can watch them having dinner all day and I would still be pleased.

R.I.P Isis.
