Downton Abbey Season 5 Episode 1 Recap

For those of our United States audience that missed the series 5 opener last night, well, you missed some succulent clips. Yesterday January 4th, Downton Abbey Season 5 amped up once again in the United States to give the viewers the fix they have been craving.
 
The episode opens with Lady Edith on her way to visit her daughter, who she had out of wedlock, Marigold. She left Marigold with a farmer Tim Drewe and told him a lie that he very well knew. Not being a problem, Tim made it quite apparent that Edith should probably take a little more interest in her child and eventually adopt her. Not sure if that will ever come to pass seeing she did have premarital sex and to place the cherry on top, did have Marigold out of that occurrence.
 




 
We turn to Lady Mary, times are changing and the last time we met her she was being tugged between Charles Blake and Tony Gillingham. It seems that in this episode, Tony has come back for personal reasons and does make an entrance at Robert and Cora’s 34th anniversary. Mary explains to Tony that she loves him and without much hesitation (behind closed doors) he asks her to spend time together as each others lovers for a week. Which is kind of funny seeing Mary just had this secret conversation.
 
Lastly, we see little Jimmy bringing the heat. It seems the widower, Lady Anstruther, has a little something for the footman. When her care mysteriously breaks down in front of Downton, we can only guess what happens next. They are found by Richard boots up in bed. They were caught when a fire broke out and Richard was going room to room. As a result, Jimmy is fired because it was unprofessional. And the fact that we are in a period in which looking at women in certain full length clothing is scandalous.

Back To ‘Downton abbey’ For Season 5 We Go!

January is one of those months we make our teeth grind. Filled with New Years resolutions (i.e. Back on that treadmill we go) and empty pockets from the holidays greetings, for some of us, there isn’t much to be very happy about. For the United States, one thing is for sure, Downton abbey is back for season 5 and we all have something to savor for.
 
The premiere of downton abbey season 5 for most of us will be the treat we need to make it not only through the work week, but through the new years resolutions we all promised ourselves. No more cupcake parlors, no more chipotle, no more ben and jerry’s chocolate fudge brownie ice cream, and certainly no more over indulgence in starbucks.. because we are trying to make a statement this year.
 
 




 
 
With that being said, the one thing we all do not have to extricate from our lives is the brand new episodes of Downton. If you haven’t been following the facebook page (which is good on you), then you will be in for many treats. Furthermore, unlike the past Christmas Specials, this one comes with quite the goodies.
 
We electric slide into the ‘Jazz Age’ in the heart of 1924. A noticeable face emerges, an American actor that goes by a very familiar name. For some of us, we aren’t impressed. While for others, it couldn’t have come fast enough. Hopefully, you all have revisited season 4 catching the tidbits that will condense and manifest in this seasons episodes. There are many questions to be asked including Tom Branson and Lady Mary. Also, is there some other courting in the midst? We are still on the edges of our couches (remove the popcorn and the chocolate fudge brownie morsels) waiting to for this series to yield its wondrous nectar.
