Reason 457 EDITH CRAWLEY IS MY GIRL.
Remember at the end of S3 when Edith got her job and Gregson was all flirty with her?
Now Edith being the clever and worldly gal that she is, realizes bro is trying to get it. Now she doesn’t just succumb to his charms and start waiting for flowers at the Abbey.
NO. She 1920’s Google stalks him instead.
^^REMEMBER THIS THOUGH????
And OOOPPPPSSS she finds out he’s married and is not pleased with this flirty actions. UNDERSTANDABLE.
Now her reaction to this is what really puts her at a WHOLE NOTHER LEVEL.
She just found out this flirty cosmopolitan fella is married and she’s not comfortable working for him so she could send a quick letter saying something along the lines of “I reconsidered and this isn’t going to work out. Best of luck. Bye.” She could even call him and say she isn’t comfortable working for him.
She does not do that.
MY GIRL EDITH SAYS TO HERSELF “OH HELL NO, I’M GOING TO LONDON TO RIP HIM A NEW ASSHOLE IN PERSON”
AND NOT ONLY DOES SHE DO THAT BUT SHE PUTS ON HER FLYEST OUTFIT TO DO SO
^^Lady Edith Crawley is ready to take your ass to school.
AND….AND. DON’T FORGET GREGSON’S LINES ABOUT THE MEETING BEING ‘UNEXPECTED’
HOMEGIRL HOPPED ON THE TRAIN AS SOON AS SHE COULD AND DIDN’T GIVE NO KIND OF SHIT ABOUT HIS SCHEDULE. NO, SHE WAS FIXIN TO TURN HIS ASS OUT WHEN SHE WAS READY. AND ‘READY’ WAS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
^^Lady Edith Crawley praying for the strength to not jump across the desk and whip his ass.
Seriously though, I just realized how amazing it is that Edith took a 3-4ish hour train ride to confront Gregson and quit in person.
She didn’t quit of course because she knows a hot piece of ass when she sees it.
CUUUUTTTTIIIEEEEEE. PRAYIN FOR YOUR RETURN BBY
