I don't particularly care for Granger, but I thought the "meerkat" bit was HILARIOUS--I nearly fell off my chair. It was the PERFECT metaphor. Also, Eric's timing at the house (with Granger) was great payback for the "National Lampoon" remark (though I liked that too).
GO NELL!!!!!!! First she "demags" herself out of hostage situation, then she stabs a homicidal misogynist.
I hope your wish is fulfilled, but CBS has a track record of doing just that--you can "align" the characters across the (once) three CSI franchises and the two NCIS franchises. Even if CBS doesn't do that for this third franchise of NCIS, viewers will.
I'm not sure I see that happening either, not so much because of the age thing, but because she's "done" that kinda character already on this same network. I'd like to see her do something different.
Thomas has become a cartoonish character; he tried to see something sinister in Lady Rose's secrecy about Robert's birthday and came up with a big goose egg. Baxter oughtta give him his comeuppance.
Meanwhile, I was proud of Daisy for finally "hissing" at Ivy--and Mrs. Hughes for telling her she deserved it.
That bit with the maitre'd was precious--if you listened very carefully, you could HEAR his testicles ascend back inside his body when Lady Cora appears to greet The Bateses.
And yessssssss.......some intrigue with Edith's pregnancy. I can stop hitting the snooze button on this season.

A drunken in Sheldon in Tijuana would be funny--if he were "tricked" into going. A man who sanitizes his hands three or more times a day and avoids hospitals because of the sick people and germs isn't about to voluntarily visit a country that's not known for its high standards of hygiene.
Wasn't feelin' this ep for a couple of reasons:
1) The case of the week was a resurrected cold case--there was no "real time" victim. Sounds ghoulish, I know, but it was a departure from the usual.
2) I was wincing through most of the second half when Sherlock was short with Randy and Randy excused himself. I thought for sure we were gonna learn that Randy OD'd. I'm glad the writers chose not to go that route, but I was uncomfortable.
Wait a second....you're tired of the storylines with Edith and Mary, Violet and Isobel, and the Daisy / William / Ivy triangle, but you're NOT tired of the conniving Barrow?
And why aren't you tired of Cora's cluelessness about her own servants and her constant indulgent smiling?
Fellowes needs to step up the game and throw us some twists or we're all gonna be asleep by the Christmassszzzzzzz......
So sayeth a man who enters into a sham relationship for entertainment of the masses. Oh, and for money….musn't forget about the money.
Dontcha y'all have a fat cousin you should be dating?
Oh, and statistics prove that most child molesters are straight, but y'all go on rantin'.

Braithwaite's departure was a twist I didn't see coming--I just figured she'd back off. Oh, and her calling Thomas "vile, oily, and smug" was truly a case of the pot calling the kettle black.
Mary Mary Mary...he said he'd wait. Well if you don't want him, pass that FINE piece o' tailcoat ovuh here......
