We wouldn’t be nearly so concerned if it wasn’t for a certain, um, parting gift he left his lover, Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael).

'Downton Abbey' Season 4 episode 5: Charles Blake breezes into town

It's Lord Grantham's birthday this week on "Downton Abbey" and Lady Rose, the resident party girl of the manor, has taken it upon herself to plan a party for him -- which means the return of cute bandleader Jack Ross (guest star Gary Carr).UpstairsThe birthday party goes off without a hitch, though Rose's hiring of Jack Ross' band to play for the evening certainly raises a few eyebrows. Luckily, no one is as ugly as the time he danced with her at the jazz club, though Carson is pretty funny this episode. He reminds us of how sometimes old people think they're being really progressive, when in actuality they're still being a little racist. Baby steps, though.Two attendees for the party bring another possible Lady Mary suitor to the forefront in the shape of one Mr. Charles Blake (guest star Julian Ovenden). Blake is there studying landed estates and how they can continue in the... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/02/downton-abbey-season-4-episode-5-charles-blake-breezes-into-town.html
