@ Cheryl - yes, tears can be healing and ,yes, Robert and Cora were experiencing the deepest grief that parents can know. That doesn't mean I have to like their "reunion." Something - many things are changing in the cultural, social life of the 1920s. Patriarchy is never going to be the same again. Robert makes a series of disastrous and small mistakes but he lives in a world where the lord of the manor's word is unquestioned. Fellows is showing us why and how that world is beginning to crumble. Bravo!
As to Fellows giving us information about how to heal from deep hurts - well, consider the Dowager's exasperation with Dr. Clarkson when he doesn't think he can lie. The Dowager retorts: "Do we have nothing in common?" Hilarious!
