If only the inhabitants of “Downton Abbey” had access to TLC’s “Long Island Medium”. Maybe Teresa Caputo’s quack visions could help the family get over the death of Matthew Crawley because he’s still front and center. Mary’s way of dealing with the loss is black clothing and ignoring her child. Not a very healthy way to go. She’s stuck in the past, but everyone else is moving forward.
The Earl is consolidating power at the Abbey after Matthew’s death left his ownership stake up in the air, Edith is exploring the world of London during the roaring 20s, and even Matthew’s mom is moving on with her own love life. Tonight though is when Mary finally begins to crawl out of her self imposed shell with the help of a new man in her life. Just like the Kid n’ Play shows, most of tonight’s action takes place at an over the top house party. Here’s the PBS synopsis of tonight’s episode.
The fates of several characters converge at an opulent house party where a famous guest performs and a new friendship forms.
From the looks of the preview for tonight’s episode, Mary’s attention is grabbed by a man described as a “Pirate” by the Earl. Sometimes you need a bad boy to take your mind off of things.
Make sure to watch tonight’s all new “Downton Abbey” or face not having anything to talk about with your over 50 co-workers. Tonight’s episode also includes Paul Giamatti in a guest starring role.
