*Spoiler Alert* If you are not caught up to Season 4 of Downton Abbey, you might not want to read this post.
Don’t you love these two?
They actually make me laugh out loud.
I think the writers of the show did a wonderful job of showing the interesting dynamic between these two strong, outspoken, bossy, meddling yet compassionate women. They truly have met their match in one another.
Outwardly, they can barely tolerate each other, but in times of crisis (like when the Dowager had the flu or when Mathew died) it becomes obvious that they actually care about each other. It is the quintessential love/hate relationship, which many of us have within our own social and family circles.
What do you think about the relationship of these two characters? Do you have an Isobel or a Lady Grantham in your life?
