My meta specialty really isn’t Mary, but uh, yes I agree with this? Sometimes I categorize (I have a ridiculous number of imaginary charts in my mind idk what’s wrong with me) Downton characters based on their views on change and progress. And Mary, as I currently understand her, really falls more in the centre. In that she really just accepts whatever her hand is and tries to work with it no matter what. So, I feel like that part of her nature played a part in the denial aspect of the Pamuk situation.
But yes, at what you said. At the end of season one, neither Mary nor Matthew (for completely different reasons) are in the right place to have a real relationship with each other. And this incident (and Mary’s perception of it and internal issues) is definitely one of Mary’s biggest problems, if not her biggest.
aaah, gosh, thank you so much. I’m so, so glad that some of you enjoy the strange thoughts that occupy my mind. dffdgf
