Balancing explosive action against an affecting look at the emotional toll of death, "Episode 7" returns Downton Abbey to its finely appointed wheelhouse.
This is the kind of ugly interaction that the frayed nerves of tragedy so often produce, and Downton is a show about human behavior finely observed enough to illustrate it.
The fast-moving camerawork and rapid cutting of the racing scenes feel very out-of-character for Downton Abbey. They're mostly effective, except for the continual cross-cutting to a sedate picnic scene over at the schoolhouse.
Death paid its annual visit to Downton Abbey on Sunday, triggering a series of rash emotional decisions - some more upsetting than others.
I don't know about you, but I have a running checklist of things the show needs to accomplish before signing off. I need happiness for Edith, romance for Tom, a baby for Anna and Mr. Bates, and peace for Thomas. I definitely don't need any more deaths.
Episode seven provided some especially explosive action sequences, and while that may be the high point for physical action, there will surely be emotional eruptions to look forward to these final two weeks.
There was a mix of tremendous highs and disappointing lows on Downton Abbey Season 6 Episode 7.
Fortunately there was no breakup on the horizon for Edith and Bertie Pelham - quite the opposite, in fact.
Oh my fellow sufferers of this living nightmare from which there is no waking ... I must confess a terrible thing. I think I may have actually enjoyed this episode. I know. It's extraordinary.
Bertie proposes to Edith, and then there's a puppy! I go back and forth on which surprise I'm more fond of.
This episode is transparently, cynically manipulative, and I resent how efficiently it worked on me, from the tense race scene to the cozy proposal to the puppy kisses.
