@Justin - melodramatic not in the act of her apologizing to Clarkson, but in the act of her wavering voice announcing it to everybody in the room while throwing eye daggers at Robert, just to make the point that it was entirely his fault!
Do I blame Lord Grantham for Sybil's death? Somewhat for sure, but he did have a good point at the beginning of the episode: Clarkson misdiagnosed both Matthew and Lavinia. Tapsel is the one who irritated me the most during the whole episode, stubbornly insisting that Sybil was going through a normal childbirth, when clearly her behavior and appearance indicated she wasn't.
