I think someone ganked this picture of mine here, but I can’t be certain.  I just remember seeing it somewhere recently and thinking “Oh, I wish I’d done that to that photo.” forgetting in my fog that I had done it.  But it could be that perhaps the other person did their own.  Not impossible.  I don’t know.  Am I seeing things?

Spoilers Ahoy! Quotes from Allen Leech, Michelle Dockery, Joanne Froggatt, and Laura Carmichael.

"That continues into Season 5. Anna — she’ll always have her back, but at the same time, it is this secret now. Mary is party to the crime now, because if it was Bates, Mary destroyed evidence, so she was taking a big risk there, but she was taking it for a friend. They’d run over coals for each other. They’re so close and it’s lovely to see their relationship develop.”

I’m freaking telling you now, that if this show was worth any real drama that drama should be about, it was fkn Mary who killed Green (or should be).

I almost wrote a fic about this too; maybe I should do it anyway, to demonstrate what I’m trying to say.  Mary was in London the same time as Bates, had been acting weird as sh*t ever since the moment she found out, and could’ve very well done an “Oops!”, pushing him out into the street to get run over (and it’s also possible Bates knows this); or perhaps it was a lot more complicated than that, where Mary saw Green/had a confrontation with him before Bates had his chance, or Bates was having his confrontation with him—whatever.  It’s just the Weird way Dockery’s been playing Mary about this whole thing that makes me think that Mary might’ve been involved in some way.

That would be awesome.  Just the thing they need to revive the show again. 

Want to come to our Premiere viewing party?? :)  Period costume optional. 

Depends on where it is, and I always dress like I live in those times anyway.  My moustache is just the beginning of it.

I’ve been writing a lot, just not DA fan fic.  I only have one, about Violet and Joe Molesley, and the one about Mary being Green’s actual killer was in the works but then all the crap happened with my ex and DA became a source of pain for me.  I don’t know anymore.  But yeah, I’m telling you and everyone in this fandom—Mary should be the “killer” (or at least be more involved than us as viewers would think to realize).  Watch the entire last season again (if you can deal with the anticlimactic/boring totality of it), and pay attention to Mary/Dockery and her interaction with Bates.  All the elements are right there.
