I'm sorry but my mom and i laughed thru that whole last bit. It was terrible. So they were attacked or something, a few people injured, others with blood on their shirts, baby kidnapped...but no one knows anything about what went down???? Like, were they almost all conveniently out of the house when it happened? How did no one see anything or see who did it? Was everyone just hiding and taking cover??? No one thought to send out a search/chase party after it happened? They just waited for john to return??? Like what???
I was gonna be mad if general french guy died bc he and chandrika are about the only ones i halfway liked on this show. And chandrika basically peaced out too.
I was also gonna be mad if mrs. Patmore got over opium that easily so seeing her have withdrawals was good to see (but not like that kinda good, if you know what i mean).
Margaret interrupting that ceremony without a care in the world was cringey. The whole margaret/john romance was cringey. Way too fast. His wife has only been dead for less than a year (probably closer to half a year) and he's known margaret for even less. Bleh. No thank you.
People are probably gonna disagree with me, but i think violet and daniel would have worked as a couple. Like, i can see the sibling angle, but it also comes off as flirty imo.
My mom and i just rolled our eyes when everyone freaked out about august not sleeping well and how chanchal (was that her name?) was the only one who could help him bc apparently she's some sort of magical baby whisperer? Like what?
I didn't know it was that easy to leave the army/militia/whatever back then. First john just walks off and now daniel just decides to stay at the beecham house all willy nilly like it's no big deal. Militia who?
I might be coming off as overly harsh but i'm not gonna be very sad to see this show go. Like, i've seen worse, but it didn't have a lot going for it outside of some prettiness.
I shall headcanon that that one beecham house guard dude survives his wounds bc i kinda liked him too.
As for the other head servant dude who likes chanchal...i wish him a better fate than evelyn napier.
