Well my husband and I watched it last night for the first time and enjoyed it!
We did catch on to things pretty quick as far as whos who. The only thing that I am trying to figure out is the guy in jail story line. I take it he was the part of the "help" before he was accused of murdering his wife. Not sure of the relationship between him and the woman that visits him...nor the other man in jail that threatened him.

You really need to catch up on the old episodes to fully enjoy that storyline, but the short version is that yes, he was part of the "help" before he got into jail, she is his wife and the other guy is just his cellmate, no history there.

Mary has the most wonderful clothes - and figure to pull them off. Loved her wedding dress. Wish they had shown a bit more 'wedding' though.

Looks like they are planting a bit of doubt in the viewers' minds as to whether Bates may have actually killed his wife? Daisy getting a bit of attitude.

just answer me this ( as a first time viewer) Bates is married to the women who is visiting him....he is accused a killing his wife. Was the women he killed his ex wife?? Did he kill her and then marry the women who is visiting him( his current wife?)
It will be a while before I know the names. Lol


I think I found the answer!!
One of the fans' favorite characters is John Bates, a k a Mr. Bates (Brendan Coyle), the valet to Lord Robert Crawley (Hugh Bonneville), Earl of Grantham. At the end of Season 2, Bates was wrongly sent to prison for the murder of his vindictive former wife, Vera (Maria Doyle Kennedy). Just before being put behind bars, Bates married his lady love, housemaid Anna May Smith (Joanne Froggett).

Evelyn, sounds like you got your answer. I wish you would watch the first couple of episodes.
(My favorite is the 1st season, 3rd episode where a good looking guy visits the estate . . .) the early episodes are nice because they really show how the home operates and shows beautiful scenery as well.
Enjoy!

Evelyn, I checked and Hulu has season 1 and 2 online. You should really watch them and get to know everyone.

I need to re-watch last night's episode. My daughter was practicing viola for the first 40 minutes and Lizzie kept ringing the potty bells!

Evelyn, I totally agree with Gelbergirl. If you enjoyed last night's episode, get hold of the earlier seasons and watch. This show is so amazingly well done, in my opinion. Every episode is thoroughly enjoyable from beginning to end. That way you will also be able to watch the character development. See the wonderful costumes. The first season started before World War I.

I too wished they had showed more of the wedding. They had this nice build up to the big day , they reached the alter, and then the next thing I know they are home from their honeymoon!!!
