Downton Abbey: 5 Crazy Plots Shaking Up The Universe
Downton Abbey has always loved big and bold plotlines. From the moment Mary took to bed with the Turkish gentlemen during Season 1, fans knew the show would be a feisty one. With that said, Season 4 has been an over-the-top look at changing worldviews and perspectives during a time when people’s outlooks and stations in life have begun to change rapidly. The new season of Downton Abbey is set in a brand new age, but it’s an age in which some people are still desperately clinging to various traditions. Thus, it’s very fun to see all of the various plotlines shaking up the Downton Abbey universe each week. Without further ado, here are five of this week’s best shaker uppers.
As usual, there are plenty of spoilers in the following paragraphs!
Edith’s PredicamentEdith has shown an independent streak for quite some time, learning to drive, write for a newspaper and then deciding to partner up with Mr. Gregson. Unfortunately, Mr. Gregson has gotten lost somewhere in Munich, after Edith slept with him and became pregnant. After the pregnancy is confirmed, Edith managed to play off her reaction as dismay over Mr Gregson’s whereabouts, but that secret cannot stay a secret for very long. We give her until the second trimester before her symptoms give her away and we expect the house to be completely taken aback by the news.
Honestly, despite the fact that it was Edith that spread similar news about Mary’s misfortune with the Turkish gentleman several years ago, we expect the backlash to be less terrible for Lady Edith, as she is more advanced in age and the times are a'changing. In the meantime, we're happy enough to see how this plotline plays out.
