I don't think they're going to ruin the impact of this brilliant moment by saying something like, well that's what comes of marrying the chauffeur. Because it didn't come from marrying the chauffeur at all. It came from listening to the idiot aristocrat doctor instead of the sensible country doctor who had known her all her life. Everybody now knows these absurd and anachronistic lords and ladies have only themselves to blame for their unsustainable lifestyle and inevitable downfall.
I'm not sure the series can top that moment. Maybe it's time to stop following it. Now that the only good one is gone, all that's left to take pleasure in is watching the rest follow.
