Late to the party, I just started watching and with Amazon Prime, actually finished the series before the final few episodes aired in the US.
I agree with some of the comments, but like the author herself says, I love it anyway.
And, yes, the Patrick Gordon who claims to be Patrick Crawley and who was probably Peter Gordon was, like Matthew's disappearing paralysis and conveniently rich, dead fiance, very soapy, but so was Lavinia's message from the beyond. And Mary and Daisy "feeling it" when their men were injured. Daisy did not love William like that. I do wish there was some follow up on this line, though, with proof one way or the other, or even evidence that may indicate he is Patrick but not clearly. It was odd to introduce it and resolve it in the same episode.
I cannot understand why people keep saying O'Brien gave Cora some sort of abortion soap. 1. If that existed it would have been super popular and saved the bacon of Ethel and Edith and countless others. 2. If you rewatch the scene, it is clear that, as said by O'Brien, the soap broke and the other half was under the tub, until O'Brien shifted it so it could either slick the floor or be stepped on. It was amazing "luck" that Cora tried to leave the tub without help (no likely, the maid should have been there holding her towel or robe), that she stepped on the soap or slick at all, AND fell, AND suffered a miscarriage but no other harm--she could have cracked her head, broken limbs, all sorts of damage--or missed it altogether. 3. Really? She told Thomas and it did not occur to HIM to blackmail her himself? To quote Vera "as if."
Mary. What. The. Heck!?! She is mean, snotty, petty, conceited, and just flat selfish. Toss in how she treats Edith and you have a sadistic bully as well. Too bad Pamuk's parting "shot" hadn't just deflowered her, but knocked her up, but I suppose she could have asked O'Brien for the soap.
