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.
Yes, my boo boo. Daisy is the unhappy kitchen wench.

I thought about buying and watching the rest of the season but I won't be doing that now. It's way too much fun to play the weekly guessing game here, not knowing for sure what will happen.

I agree that Cora is devoted to Robert. After all, she forgave him for loosing her entire family fortune. The death of Sibel is another matter with Robert.
I think Cora's "Americanism" will come into play when she considers the only reason that "Sir" Doctor was in charge was because of his social status. Grrrrrrrrrrr

Thanks for the tip on the sites. Sometimes I will search something and now I will stop in case I run into a site that divulges things ahead of time.

I took a few hours off while tending to some things. That's enough. I'm dying to finish off the season Which I will start here shortly.
But then what will I do?

GQ, I'd love to have you expand on this up to the point of the death of Sybel.

I too was surprised by Isobel's actions hiring Ethel. She's very passionate about "helping" people. I laughed at the scene where she's trying to teach the "women" to sew.

One more little thing about Sunday's -- the business of the broken sauce near-disaster and Alfred (it was Alfred, wasn't it?) stepping in with the trick of beating in an egg to rescue it. Made me wonder if men were not supposed to be involved with cooking at that time, i.e. Mrs. Patmore at DA and Isobel's Mrs. Bird, who just left in a huff. {{Kidney souffle' ack ack}} Also made me wonder further if that's so, was that true in France? I think of French chefs generally being men (probably erroneous, but that's my impression of how it used to be).

I remember Alfred having worked in a hotel, but I don't remember where. He obviously picked up some tricks concerning food while there.

Well, I have finished season 3. I think the writers really went overboard with all that was going on this season. I don't recall the other two season's being filled with so much drama at every turn.

Carry on

If I remember, wasn't there something said when Alfred hired on about he'd rather be in the kitchen?

Or was that Daisy saying she'd rather he be in the kitchen?
