I finally figured out I could watch the finale.....at midnight. So, yes, I was up until 2 AM watching TV.
Would I have done anything differently for the ending? I don't think so, it hit all the right notes for me. One scene that I wish I'd seen would have been in the previous episode where Edith tells her parents why she is leaving Downton, that Mary has deliberately sabotaged her sister's happiness and that she feels Cora and Robert are complicit. They allowed Mary to badger and bully Edith for years, as if it were part of her birthright and never called her on it, made no attempt to stop it. I think Edith should have called them on it so they would finally realize they (especially Robert) are at least partly responsible for Mary's selfish willfulness. I might have to fanfic that one.
And now, it's another phone call to the cable company since I realize one of the channels that has disappeared is ION TV. Yes, the only channel that airs Saving Hope in the US. Sighs heavily.....
I owe a lot of folks comments on some stellar fic and artwork but I've been very under the weather for several months. Bad side effects from the meds I have been taking to get my thyroid kick-started have kept me tied down too long. But the doctor cut back on one med and started me on another so we will see.
I'm going to put this under a cut because it is very NCIS spoilery for last night's episode.
