‘Downton Abbey’ s6e2 – Goodbye, Drewes

17 Jan

Before we get to this week, I’d like to mention that I’ve updated my episode 1 recap with a couple of additional thoughts. Since PBS is broadcasting each episode six times this season (plus online streaming), repeat watching is positively inevitable. The glorious thing about repeat watching is that good stories are like onions…each time you peel a layer back, you find a lovely new one underneath.

Too bad all the people who arrive are not as snazzy on the inside.

But we’ll get to that later.  This is a “parental guidance suggested” episode…and so is this blog post.

Mastermind Edna is using her Jedi mind tricks on Tom…and once again it’s working.  Slightly terrified they’re going to work.  Or they already have.

“You understand me, don’t you?” ~ Tom
