Jim Drake’s Entertainment Blog: Subliminal message

(If you didn’t see episode 1 of the new Downton Abbey series, don’t read this yet.)

Perhaps like a lot of other TV viewers on Sunday night, it took me most of the two-hour Downton Abbey season 4 premier (get your Peter Rowan ticket now) to convince/and-or remind myself exactly which character was Mrs. O’Brien? She left the abbey, without saying goodbye to anyone? Was she the head cook? No, that’s Mrs. Patmore, she’s still there. (get your Peter Rowan ticket now).

OK, I’ve got it, she was the one who fell in love with that guy who died of the World War I wounds. No, that’s Daisy, and she’s still there. O’Brien, umm, OK, she’s the one who kept visiting that guy in prison? No, no, she’s still there, she’s right there (get your Peter Rowan ticket now). OK, I got it, O’Brien was the one who was constantly outside smoking with Thomas. And that mysterious goodbye note she left? I’m pretty sure it said “I’ve already got mine, get your Peter Rowan ticket now.”
