"But she IS responsible for Edith right now."
Says who? Edith is an adult and has gone to London on her own before. Aunt Ros did well to advise Edith, but she's not her mother.
Lackluster ep IMO. Enjoyed learning the back-story, but the action and detective work weren't up to the usual standards.
As for the lingering "Cath bashing", this mirrors what people (mostly women) are saying about a new female character on another show. Let it go, folks.
On a lighter note, when Chin confronted Gabriel with "You killed my father, you son of a bitch!", did anyone flash on Inigo Montoya (from "The Princess Bride") and his "I want my fath-ehr back, you son of a bitch!" ? No? Just me then? :-)

Don't usually watch this show, but saw this ep by accident because I thought "Looking" was on at 10:00 instead of 10:30.
I think this show is GREAT.....for forcing gay men to come out da closet. Otherwise, behold the alternative. BLEEEEEECCCCCCHHHHHHHH!!!
JLo advises a singer to stop twerking? Tee hee....JLo make funny...considering she's done her fair share of gyrating and booty shaking while performing.

I know that it's water that helps flowers grow, but in your case, I think a saucer of milk would meet the case.
Y'know...I've read all of these comments and noticed something rather "interesting." Most of the posters who can't wrap their heads around the fact that Ziva is gone.....G to the O to the N to the E.....na na naaaa na hey hey heyyyy Shaaaaa-loooooom...are women. I won't pretend to know what the motivation is but it makes me wonder how people reacted after Kate was killed and Ziva joined the team. Did people trash her after three episodes too, or did they give her a chance to find her groove with the team?
Not making judgments...again, just find it rather interesting.

Great ep, but similar to NCIS, this White Ghost story arc is getting dragged out, likely building to a climax during Feb sweeps.
These story arcs featuring high-profile killers are getting longer and longer. Next week's ep is a repeat, which means CBS we're probably in for a few more eps before the climax...in time for Feb sweeps. #TiredOldTrope
I'd like to see Fellowes write in a twist here. We saw the maid sneak into a bedroom and we're assuming it's Tom's, but……suppose it's not? Or suppose Tom is wise to her and he's sitting in a chair, wide awake, fully dressed, the whiskey undrunk, and he turns her out? Or suppose Carson's in the room ready to catch her in the act?
Oh I know…a little far-fetched since Tom's a lonely man who's been handed an alcoholic beverage, but it was only a passing thought.

I was glad, in a small way, to see Cora finally step up and take charge of a situation for once, instead of smiling indulgently at everyone.
"(Dame Nelly) will be next to you at dinner, and you will like it."
OK, so it wasn't a "high drama" situation, but maybe it's a sign of things to come.
As for the reviewer's confusion about naming conventions, that's how things were done--writers of the original "Upstairs Downstairs" and "Gosford Park" (which was written by Julian Fellowes, the writer for DA) made careful use of this convention. Below stairs, the servants of the visitors were called by their "masters" last names. It's really only upstairs where it might get confusing.
