"Downton Abbey" Was Incredibly Upsetting Last Night
Poor Anna. Warning: SPOILERS AHEAD!
In case you missed Downton Abbey last night, some real crazy shit went down.
For starters, Lord Gillingham shows up with this royal d-bag of a valet.
Lord Gillingham and a few others are visiting for a weekend party at Downton, complete with an opera performance from visiting Dame Nellie Melba.
Basically, Downton is business as usual: formal dinners, quips from the Dowager Countess, and Anna petting Lady Mary's hair.
That is, until Anna goes downstairs to fetch something for a headache, and Mr. Green/Gillingham follows her...
She pops downstairs in the middle of the concert, and no one seems to notice that Mr. Green leaves quickly after she does.
Once it's clear that Anna wants nothing to do with him, Mr. Green then proceeds to punch Anna in the head and rape her.
The next time we see Anna, she's holed up in Mrs. Hughes' office and pleads for her to keep the secret.
It was all pretty uncharacteristic for Downton Abbey, and all terribly upsetting.
And many fans were not pleased by the storyline:
