I was really disappointed we didn't get to hear any words from her, especially a conversation with Michael and Edith.
I'm also left wondering if maybe Michael was a member of the real-life Bloomsbury Group. Michael mentioned to Edith he wanted to write a novel, and I said before I'd love it if the show portrayed him working on it while taking time off to recover from his ordeal in Germany. It might be great if Edith herself started writing poetry and/or fiction.
His experiences in World War I could also be an option; R.C. Sherriff wrote about British officers in the trenches in his play Journey's End.
We're actually coming up on the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I, so I wouldn't be surprised if we see a lot of World War I dramas and historical documentaries right now.
Imagine a Bloomsbury Group scene with Woolf, Gregson, Edith, and others.
If not this, it would certainly make for a Downton Abbey dinner discussion. I wonder what Violet would say.
Let's hope that Edith spots Michael in a German hospital in a Coma from the beating he took from the thug Brown Shirt Gang. All his identification had been stolen so no one knew his identity. But as Edith is enroute back to England with the baby, the baby becomes
ill and must be taken to a hospital. The hospital where Michael Gregson is lying comatose. Edith spots him and stays by his side.
He awakens, heals and marries Edith; loving her and their child.
I wonder if we'll meet Michael's lawyer, since Michael gave Edith power of attorney and might've named her his heir in a new will. Perhaps if the insane Mrs. Gregson dies, he could be the one to tell her and/or Michael.
There was also the book All Quiet on the Western Front which was made into a film; it had a sequel, The Road Back, about Germany after the war. They tried making that into a film too but it was not a success for a number of reasons. Perhaps Gregson's novel could be based on his experiences in Germany.
I realize I repeated what was already suggested in the last sentence; my error.
It would seem the trenches of World War I, post war Germany, and 1920s British society would be the top three most likely settings of Gregson's book.
What do you think?
