How come she didn't try to help Edith? If she believed in love and titles, why didn't she help Edith get back with Bertie? Why does she only help Mary? Couldn't she have tried to help both? Why was Mary her priority when Mary in this case did more wrong than Edith? In fact, why is Mary always everyone's priority? You'd have thought we'd see someone in the family reach out to Edith, apart from Tom. Offer her some comfort. The family as a whole seem more concerned that Mary did something wrong than Edith has lost a man she loved. But really, why didn't Violet do something fo Edith. After all, Edith loved Bertie and he had a title, you'd think getting those two back together would be her number one goal. So why does she only bother with Mary?
