I like Lady Edith’s character on Downton this season. I’ve always liked her character actually, just more so now that her story line is getting more interesting than just “Mary’s-life-is-perfect-and-mine-sucks-so-I’m-going-to-be-bitchy-about-it.”
*Romance doesn’t seem to be in her favor (nor in mine).
*She can be kind and generous at times.
*She wants to be of use, and to do something productive.
*She doesn’t wallow.
*Her character has grown a lot from the beginning.
I don’t think she’ll end up being a spinster for the rest of the series. I think she’ll meet some great, intellectual guy who has more self-confidence than Anthony Strallan has in his eyebrow. And their exchanges will be a riot to watch.
At least I hope so. And no, I’m not putting my hopes and dreams into Edith’s hopes and dreams…I think.
(But it’s true that many people are rather….uselessly unintelligent. I’m saying it because I find it as the truth. Not as purposefully hurting people…I think.)
