I hope Tom goes back into politics. Isobel suggested in Series 4 he might run for the Local Council, which is a possibility in Series 5. Personally, I'd like him to aim higher and seek a seat in Parliament after he is done with the Local Council.
Tom has to forget about Downton and lead a Proletarian Revolution in the British Isles to rid the lands of aristocracy and bring about a Millenium of Peace and Justice!
Don't you knitting knitters think so?
Agreed! Hear ! Hear! Harrumph!
Hope and pray there is someone else for Tom Branson!! IMO: Sarah Bunting is terrible choice!! I could say more but why waste the time on this character!!!!
In my opinion I think Tom and Sybil were absolutely PERFECT and can NEVER BE REPLACED! I'm probably just being selfish but I will not be happy if Tom goes with anyone else...he belongs with Sybil!!! If I had to choose who he had to go with though, I'd probably pick Mary, though don't get me wrong - TOM AND SYBIL FOREVER!!
Tom, Mary, and Edith have each had that once in a life time love that can never be replaced, respectively with Sybil, Matthew, and Michael. While they might each move on, they will never love anyone as fully in the way they loved those three.
It would be nice if Blake rentered Mary's life. A relationship with Bunting and Tom was never going to work becasue of her prejudices, and Edna was downright awful. As for Edith, she did flirt with that guy in the Christmas special, but it will be interesting to see if she does find someone she really likes. She'll have to make sure it is someone she can tell the truth about Marigold and who would be willing to love Marigold all the same.
Now Sybil has gone it woukld be a mistake if Sybbie and Tom were to leave too!
Tom and Sybil were well suited despite thier diffferences in social classes. He loved Sybil with all his heart, so I doubt he will ever marry again, if he does than that lady would have to be quite extraoridnary to fill Lady Sybil's shoes. But it looks like he will never remarry. He will be livng a new life with his daughter Sybbie.I will miss him, I felt he was a bridge between the upstairs and downstairs world.
I quite agree. I can't see Tom remarrying again either. I think that is one reason why Julian Fellowes sent him to Boston. He knew fans would never acceot a replacement for Sybil so he has given up on that and couldn't think what else to do with Tom, so he sent him away. Pity as he was the conscience of that house!
What do you think?
