If Julian Fellowes decides to do a prequel series to Downton he should totally call it The Legend of Cora.

whats-all-this said: I've rewatched the finale and I'm kind of in love with your Gillingham-killed-Green theory. It's more plausible than Bates being able to track him down in London tbh.
I swear it makes sense! :D Yeah, I have trouble with the idea that Bates somehow managed to find him - I know Downton’s often implausible, but how would it have worked, logistically? Especially if there’s a witness who saw him in York. I’m hoping it was Gillingham, but I have this weird feeling it’ll turn out to really be an accident. They can’t do the “commit suicide to frame someone” plot again, surely.
That or complete crack theory - it was Mary, and Season 5 will be a Chicago ripoff with her on trial (and Carlisle, from afar and still in love with her) breathlessly covering her sensational trial. With jazz. Maybe.
I would totally buy Mary doing it. She probably would have hired someone to do it (she may be Khaleesi of the Pigs but I don’t think she’d get her hands dirty killing someone), but I think she probably figured that Anna needed closure, Gillingham probably wouldn’t have fired him without cause, and Bates was going to find out and do something stupid sooner or later. So she hires someone to push Green in front of a car (that’s the real reason she was in London, and only went to lunch with Gillingham to give herself plausible deniability). Bates really was just in York to chill out and maybe buy something nice for Anna.

For some reason Tumblr is being a butt and won’t let me upload images, but
CAN WE TALK ABOUT JACK ROSS
Because he’s an awesome singer and debonair as fuck and I love him and he’s my new imaginary boyfriend and I know that racism was (and is, for that matter) very much a sad reality but I want people on the show to stop being such a dick to him/awkward around him because he’s so great and wonderful. He is great and I hope we get to see more of him.
And Robert is partially back in my good graces for totally subverting my expectations and being appreciative and respectful of Jack. I know, I know, you shouldn’t get a cookie for being a decent human being, but I still find it so odd/hilarious that Robert is such a stick in the mud about women and social class, but is totally nonchalant about race and sexuality.
But four for you for not being an asshole, Robert. You go, Robert.
