Exactly right BT, not to mention why it's unlikely Cora will ever forgive the pompous doctor, or Robert for standing with him.

i think cora will get over it. she seems to truely love robert, flaws and all. actually, she protects him in a way.
and she buys into the whole scheme of things, as they were.

honestly, i can sympathize with robert. if i had to decide between my family doctor saying he had an uncertain treatment, and a specialist that guaranteed a good result, i'm not sure who i'd choose even today.

i can see this working into the subplot of how robert loses his being master of the abbey, and matthew taking over.

There are somethings that send me over the edge. Abuse and neglect of children and animals, ethics, deliberate and uncalled for rudeness, thinking I am just a stupid old lady, etc. I do tend to get carried away. I need to step back and remember, "this is just a story." Darn DA. I am just too involved in this story. It has me hooked. I need to go and look at "Today's Funny."

Ah yes! As the saying goes.... "And the plot thickens." Daisy has some evidence that will free Mr. Bates. But will she be able to put it to use?

My mom's oldest brother was born with a birth defect in 1922--his esophagus was not connected. He was born in a hospital, but sent home with my grandparents to die (I can't imagine how hard that was for them--this was their first born child. My grandfather was gassed in the trenches in France during WWI). Today this would be an easy fix (maybe not easy, but fixable). Deaths associated with childbirth were still quite high in the 1920s.

Daisy? Do you mean Anna, his wife?
Anyway, I know what happens there as I've just watched the next two weeks' episodes.

I didn't know Matthew wasn't returning though. Good spoiler. That should make finishing up the season interesting knowing that.

I was doing a search on the DA family to try and get all the relations straight and one website had the family tree. It showed Sybil's death in childbirth so I knew that was coming and it told how Matthew "leaves the show" which I will not divulge here for those that want to find out in the normal course of viewing.
