With Matthew gone, I hope Isobel, his mama, and the DA doctor get together in season 4. It's already been hinted at but Isobel said no thanks. The doctor's a handsome and sweet man so Isobel may indeed need a shoulder to cry on next season. Isobel was very clear that she liked her life exactly the way it is but she may indeed change her tune. Izzie....you don't have to marry him--just have some fun for heaven's sake.
I'm loving Ms. Pattmore and Mrs. Hughes more and more each show. They are hilarious together and so sweet, and their growing friendship is heartwarming. Real gal pals in a very British way. Do you smell a growing relationship between Mrs. Hughes's and Mr.Carson?? Dare we hope for such a happy plot twist? As fun as it would be, I'm not sure Mr. Carson could withstand such a shock.
And now to Branson. OMG....what a hunk. When Mrs. Hughes asked if she could talk to him the way she used to when he was "in service", I about d-i-e-d. She told him how he'd made such a difficult transition flawlessly, and how proud Sybil would be, he lost it and I did, too. He is heartbroken with out Sybil and lonely as all get out--read vulnerable-- and with Rose coming to DA next season all I can say is here we go again with the chauffeur, only now he's the Land Manager.
Did you notice all of Lady Mary's gorgeous nightgowns?? And the clothes of the upper crust ladies?? They continue to be beautiful (with the exception of Rose's mother) and the jewelry is tres' grand. The Dowager's pearls were multi-strand gawgeousness, and the clasp was the size of your fist.
I'm afraid we are in for more cat fights next season between Lady Edith and Lady Mary. Lady Mary's future demeanor has already been alluded to, and Lady Edith is becoming very much her own woman--get ready for the fur to fly. I can hardly wait!
