You never seem very surprised when Jimmy shows (obvious) interest in you. Why don't you say something to him about it?

Well, he’s my friend so I’d be surprised if he wasn’t, right?

Or are you seriously implying that just because he likes my hairstyle or thinks my hands are soft he’s up for banging me?

I’m not so sure - you know, he’s just one of those folks who are friendly and charming with everyone.

… hold on, wait - he isn’t.

Apropos blackmailing, Your Grace ... the assortment of letters you once burned to cinder wasn't complete. Thomas kept his favorite letter of yours separately. It was his lucky charm for a while. It is very intimate and thus potentially incriminating. He never even considered using it against you.He still owns it and holds it strangely dear. What do you think about that?

hisgracetheduke answered:

That I’ve done nothing to Thomas to warrant his reprisal a decade later; if he didn’t use it then, I’d be hard-pressed to imagine that he would use it now.

Come to that, for some godforsaken reason, I would have an infinitely easier time going to France than Thomas ever would, leaving him rather precariously. They don’t need for much evidence, you know.

Ugh, Philip, you surely are the least romantic creature on God’s earth!

The person who called you out is quite right - you are sickeningly full of yourself. I'm feeling quite inclined to blackmail you. A year or two in gaol with rotten food and hard labor would to you darn good!!

hisgracetheduke answered:

If you’re one of those inclined to persecute Uranists as it suits, then I really could not be persuaded by fires of Hell to give more of a damn than nought for either you or your tawdry opinions.

Hmmh, a fall from grace would surely make quite an intriguing storyline, Your Grace …

And yes - you are too damn full of yourself.

Wonder how your wife puts up with you.

I’m reminded of some turn of phrase about ‘pots’ & ‘kettles’ - can’t quite put my finger on it. And I went to war, same as you. If that’s not a fall from grace, well….

And my wife doesn’t put up with me, nor I with her. That’s the neat little trick of our arrangement.

Season 5: Behind the Scenes | Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Rob James Collier "Setting up a scene where Lady Mary and Lord Grantham are walking through the square and encounter  Thomas Barrow.  There is an exchange of words and they looked puzzled after Thomas leaves them."’

Oh  bb, you look stunning! <3

is it just me or does RJC look kind of weird in these new s5 pics?

Nope. Not just you. I almost didn’t recognize him in the top picture. He looks bloated much. Maybe it’s just an unfortunate pic. Hope he’s alright.

[Thinking about the reasons for that canceled marathon thingy again :/]

Philip, Duke of Crowborough - a man of solid character.

-Thomas Barrow voice shouts from the crowd- “yeah- a solid DOucHE baG!”

The Duke had more character development in one episode than Thomas had during the entire season 4.

[I love the Duke’s “I forget”-face. So endearing. One just wants to smack him with relish]
