When we last left ‘Downton’, Lady Mary was caught up in the middle of quite a tricky love triangle with both Charles Blake and Lord Gillingham fighting for her attention, so we were rather hoping these new photos would give us some indication which of the blokes she’d picked.
Unfortunately actress Michelle Dockery was snapped on her own giving us not even a hint as to her character’s current romantic situation, though she is wearing a lovely hat, which rather cushions the blow a bit.
When Michelle was later seen with a mystery man it did build our hopes up that we might have some new ‘Downton’ gossip, but upon closer inspection it’s just her brother-in-law Tom Branson, played by actor Allen Leech……
Why do you keep saying that?!
Heteronormativity in action.
She didn’t just date dudes and she was going to repeat herself until Scott understood. And it took her female ex punching and kicking the shit out of him for him to get it.

Can we talk about how Cap and Bucky have opposite masks?
Cap has mouth and eyes exposed, forehead covered. Bucky has mouth covered and eyes painted black, his forehead exposed.
What a lovely symmetry.
But the symbolism too. Cap’s is a helmet, protection, to keep him safe from physical harm. Bucky’s is a muzzle to keep him silent and anonymous and on a leash.
