Family Day & Downton Abbey Season 3 Finale
- It's Family Day here in Ontario, Canada. Some of you have it off as a government/ bank holiday, some do not. I think it should be country-wide. I don't have anything planned for Family Day this year, except to play some board or card games. Monopoly, Scrabble, UNO, dominos?
- Season finale of Downton Abbey, season 3 was great. Although I don't know why the writers can not let any character be happy for too long. Does there always have to be a tragedy to keep the audience enthralled? I personally don't think so. It's cliche but at least Matthew died instantly. The other unfortunate thing is, now Mary will most likely become her old snarky, miserable self again. Matthew's mom, Isobel will be a mess. Her husband, now her only child are dead. Maybe she'll allow Dr. Clarkson in her life as more then just a friend. Time will tell, I guess.
-I am happy that the new maid who was hitting on Branson was sent packing. She was too much, even for changing times.
-Edith is determined to get "her" man any way that she can. I'm not happy with the circumstances but she deserves some happiness. Her father will blow his gasket, though.
-Thomas and Jimmy new friendship will be interesting to observe. Thomas does need a friend since him and O'Brien have fallen out.
-I couldn't believe how sour and miserable Susan MacClare & her maid are. It will be interesting to see those story lines flush out.
-I do like the edition of cousin Rose to the mix. She'll be a good "replacement" for Sybil and will keep the household on it's toes!
-Too short of a season but I enjoyed it & I can't wait for season 4! How did you find the season finale of Downton Abbey?
How are you spending or how did you spend Family Day, if you get/got the time off?
Till next time,
