Seeking form amidst the void.
But if that's not possible, gimme a Margarita...shaken, not stirred...and hold the salt, please.
My guess is that Fellowes used it as a convenient device just for the letter-stealing caper, so that he didn't have to introduce any more new characters (which means hiring more actors which costs more money). I would hope Lord Grantham isn't going to be regualarly calling on Bates to forge documents for him. (Although Robert can be such a weasal at times, so who knows)

I am hoping we see something of Lord Grantham's trip to New York! And maybe something of Ivy's. This city has come up in the s/l a lot over the years and seems to be home base for Cora's realatives. There hasnt been much said about Lord G's trip except a comment from sly old Thomas. I would love to see them managing in the strangeness of a new place.
Watching the presentations at court, I never realized before that the young girl 'coming out', had to be presented by an older female realative with connections to the aristocracy. I thought--when something like this even crossed my mind--it would be her father presenting her to the king.
Wouldn't it be shocking if it comes out that Bates really did kill his wife???????lol Just kidding. I think she did commit suicide by poisoning herself, but he might have helped her along with it? He can be very convincing.
I do hope Edith can trust the man she is leaving the child with. She has such poor luck. She's likely to get caught in a blackmail situation.
I do wonder how Edith thinks she and her child can inherit from her lover gone missing since he has a living wife. There is no proof this child is his and he cannot acknowledge it is his child. This is usually required for inheritance by out of wedlock children. I also wonder why Edith has never checked in on the wife who is supposedly in an asylum. Wouldn't the man's estate go to pay for his wife's care?
Is there a Christmas special that we haven't seen yet?

I thought we had seen Bates pull off a bit of forgery in the past...?
Recall when in prison Bates had forged some kind of letter that caused the evil cell mate to go down. The guy was trying to make Bates' existence even more miserable. I have forgotten the details.
Am I the only one who thinks that Edith is actually Rosamund's love child, and that she gave Edith to her brother to raise to escape scandal? It would seem a perfect fit.
The average dog is a nicer person than the average person
What I got from Edith's and the farmers conversation is that he understands it is her child and that she wants to see the child raised without the scandal. I think that's why he suggested that instead of her bringing the baby to his family with her fake story that he take the baby home to his wife and family with a different story. That way the baby can never be linked back to her to avoid the scandal. IDK but I really think his intentions are honorable. I thought it was a very touching scene.
