Downton Abbey S04 E05

Downton Abbey season 4 episode 5 – the ups, the downs and the best Maggie Smith moment

What I loved : Tom and Mary taking care of their children in the nursery (the four of them were adorable!), and Bates finally knowing what happened to Anna and comforting her.

What I didn’t love : Bates’ subsequent death threats to Anna’s attacker (does he need more time in prison?) and William getting rejected from the Ritz school.

Best Maggie moments : to Isobel “But your gratitude never seems to last! I’ve no sooner said yes that you come back with another request”. And again, to Isobel “Nobody cares about anything as much as you do” (and her laughing at her own joke for a good ten seconds afterwards!).
