Death comes to Pemberley - part 3

Oh my God, what a soap-soup that was and how convenient a solution!

Best moment: OMG!!!  Lady Catherine de Bough played by Penelope Keith! What a load of fun that was!
"I told him that he needed to decide whether to live or die and then get on with it. With as little possible inconvenience to others...." Ha!!!
I want a 'heated debate' between her and Violet Crawley from Downton Abbey! Slaughter by sharp tongues and even sharper wits! :D

I was amazed by Trevor Eve and Tom Ward. I loved the fight that the last one had with Darcy in the coach and up the stairs. Please, dear Lord Roxton, settle down, dear chap, you were fighting a losing war over Georgiana anyway.

The entire drama in the last minutes of Wickham's hanging was a bad joke. All very exciting, ofcourse, but is there ANYONE who actually expected him to hang?

Lydia.... wow... talk about living in a state of delusion. I did momentarily feel for her. Luckily it was quickly over.

There was a love scene between Darcy and Lizzie. Sweet. Unnecessary, but sweet. Unless it was supposed to have the end-result, but that would be too fast for her to know about.

And .. ah... Mr Darcy. His emotions all over the place... that's how I like my Matthew. Darcy's anger, his apology towards Georgiana and Lizzie, his care for Wickham, his pride at the trial... Love that man....

But what a soap!

*** I suppose there was meant to be a bit of a time gap between the very end, when Lizzie announced her pregnancy, and that scene. Possibly the letter to Jane was meant to let the audience understand this? ****

That is also what I thought at first but then there was Georgina and that guy. I don't think that he would have waited that long, or the moment with Wickham/Lydia, that seemed very shortly after the trial as well. Confusing.

Darcy is a very strict, arrogant, proud man who doesn't handle it well to be contradicted or if things don't go 'as they should/always were done', so I think that Matthew captured well the man who keeps having to make all sorts of adjustments to one lie/reveal after another. It must have been hard for him to find out that those he trusted shouldn't have been trusted and that those who' opinions he didn't value turned out to be right.

But, the storylines.... That finale with Lizzie yelling to stop the hanging etc... SO over the top! Dignity, people, dignity.... and don't 'inconvenience' others, not even when dying.
