It’s a busy day at work today, folks, and I don’t have time for an elaborate introduction / cross-post. Though I will say two things: 1) every line out of Maggie Smith’s mouth continues to be pure gold and 2) if Bates the valet and Anna the housemaid fail to have some sexytimes — or at least implied sexytimes — by the end of the series, there will be serious dedespondency in our household. You can read our third live-blog of “Downton Abbey” over at …fly over me, evil angel… and catch up with installments one and two there as well. Spoilers after the jump. You have been warned.
