    O'Brien was never one to worry about how her scheming affects other people. It's all about her.

    In this case, though, it may be a "two birds with one stone" scenario, since Jimmy is competing with her nephew for the first footman job.

    O'Brien's scheme might just backfire on her!

    Has anyone on staff every suffered any consequences from their behavior? I recall the one girl who was caught having sex with the injuried soldier and then before Thomas went to war, he was terminated, but they allowed him to leave on his own accord saying he was going to war, right?

    O'Brien didn't get fired for causing Cora's miscarriage, but that's only because they don't know it was her.

    Carson didn't get punished for sneaking food to his old vaudeville partner...but that's because it was more cute than wrong.

    I recall the scene of Cora in the tub and O'Brien in the next room. Then I heard a scream. What happened?

    As I recall, Cora slipped on a bar of soap that O'Brien did not pick up near Cora's tub (or did she 'plant' it there?).

    Cora fell and then suffered a miscarriage.

    Here's an interesting article on Season 3. Good observations.

    I'm pretty sure she planted the soap, but it's been a while.

    O'Brien set the soap on the floor intending Cora to slip on it. It was retaliation for Cora seeking a replacement for O'Brien...or so O'Brien thought. In reality, Cora was helping Violet find a replacement for her own lady's maid, who was leaving. O'Brien got an attack of conscience while Cora was still in the bath and started back to the bathroom to get the soap, but it was too late. O'Brien didn't find out that Cora wasn't planning on replacing her until after Cora lost the baby.
