OK, is there going to be a review of episode 12? Only one more episode to go and this show is just rapidly devolving. On a side note, WHAT have the TVFanatic powers that be done to this web site? It's awful and takes much longer to download.

Excellent installment. Good discussions about the future of the monarchy, technology's impact on Downton, women's rights emerging, and in general the changing of the times, which seems to be rapidly picking up pace. Just a side note to the reviewer - there was NO such thing as the morning-after pill, nor any other hormonal-based birth control, available at that time. I suspect Mary was pursuing a diaphragm, as that, and perhaps condoms, were just about the only available birth control back then. I am so glad that times have progressed to where women have many more choices, and are free to pursue those choices now. It's taken many decades, but we really have come a long way, baby. Kudos to Mary for being smart and progressive enough to realize that she must take control of her body and fate, and not trust a man to that decision. I am starting to see for the first time that she is ahead of her time, and actually admired her on this episode.

Yeesh. Stick a fork in it; this show is DONE. I had such high hopes for this series; it has disappointed me at nearly every turn. I will, of course, stick with it till the end, just because I'm a stubborn $#@%$! And because of Kurtwood Smith.
