'Downton Abbey' recap: Babe of pigs
Near the end of Sunday’s “Downton Abbey,” I half-expected Chris Harrison to show up in the Crawleys’ drawing room and start quizzing Mary about her favorite bachelor. Just a few short weeks ago, our heroine was catatonic with grief over Matthew’s death; now she’s frolicking in the pigsty, scrambling eggs into the wee hours of the night and fending off the handsome, eligible suitors with a stick, like some kind of jazz age “Bachelorette” (or, if you prefer, the Scarlett O’Hara of Yorkshire society).
