Lord Gillingham and a few others are visiting for a weekend party at Downton, complete with an opera performance from visiting Dame Nellie Melba.
Sounds like your run of the mill Downton fodder, right?
Basically, Downton is business as usual: formal dinners, quips from the Dowager Countess, and Anna petting Lady Mary’s hair.
All good, clean Downton Abbey frills.
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.
We don’t see the rape, thankfully, but we do hear Anna screaming all while a Puccini opera plays in the background. Which is kind of worse, in a lot of ways.
And many fans were not pleased by the storyline:
- Barack Obama holds his final press conference as president today.
- Scott Pruitt, Donald Trump's pick for EPA chief, refused to say at his confirmation hearing if he would recuse himself from lawsuits he filed against the EPA.
- It's official: Scientists announced today that 2016 was the hottest year on record and that greenhouse gases are to blame ♨️️🌍
- "Will & Grace" will return for a 10-episode revival. Debra Messing and Eric McCormack will reprise their roles in the groundbreaking NBC sitcom 📺
