Downton Abbey- Series Three, Episode Three

What happened-  Edith tries to marry Strallan, but he flees at the altar because he thinks he's too old and one-armed for her. Edith is devastated. Thomas makes everyone think that O'Brien was going to quit her job, so after she rectifies the problem, she vows revenge on Thomas. Matthew receives a letter from Swire's will saying that Swire was aware of how Matthew and Lavinia broke it off, and he was okay with it and still wanted Matthew to be one of his heirs. Matthew decides to take the money and use it to save Downton. Mrs. Hughes does not have cancer. Yay!

What we thought-  This was the most enjoyable episode of the season so far. And to think, it was mostly about Edith. That's a first. Edith's wedding attire was nothing compared to Mary's. Violet's outfit at the wedding was insanely chic though. We knew Anthony Strallan was going to chicken out of the wedding when he was sitting in the church, shaking, but jeez, terrible timing, bro. Poor, poor Edith. Edith is going to be so angry with her father. That was painful to watch. So awkward. The definition of awkward. Well, we guess we never want Mary wishing US good luck.

Mary has the body of a 10-year-old boy. It really works in those dresses though. At the start of the episode, Mary is still being awful about Matthew's financial decision. Rejecting the money is honorable, but continuing to torture himself over what happened is not. We love Mary for reading the letter from Mr. Swire. Reggie Swire is a great guy. Okay, NOW Matthew can take the money. We liked that he confirmed the letter's authenticity. That was smart. We're glad the financial troubles are over. Daisy has been underused, so we're also glad that new redhead is paying attention to her.

Carson's eyebrows are still out of control. Tom is still in town, being hot. Thank the Lord. We miss him and Sybil so much when they are gone. Cora is a real lady. We love her. We liked what she said to Mrs. Hughes after finding out about the possible illness. It would be so awful to wonder if you were sick and have to wait for that news. It would be impossible not to worry, even if you were the Buddha or something. We liked Alfred's reaction to the runaway groom. Amen. Violet was on fire in this episode. "Vulgarity is no substitute for wit" is one of her best quotes.

The show is making us think Bates is guilty. We like the war between O'Brien and Thomas. It gives him a reason to keep existing. You don't hear the word "trollop" much anymore. Good word, "trollop." We're so addicted to this show, and we don't have a single bad thing to say about it this week. Next week looks crazy. Tom abandoned Sybil? How could he?!! We need all the details, immediately.

Episode grade: A-
