Two thing were obvious to me…1 - Cora wants Robert to notice her. 2 - Bricker (maybe using another name) and Cora know each other from days gone by…she just may not remember.

Maybe they knew each other in a past life. ;)

I wanted to slap Robert in this scene. Poor Cora :-(. The look on her face says it all.

Yeah. That is the look of a woman who would like to be appreciated by her husband (and certainly not the look of one bored with her husband, ready for a fling). Robert just needs to open his eyes and stop taking her for granted.

I’m happy that Robert and Cora actually seem to have a story line this season that involves their relationship, but I’d be happier if Fellowes could do it without rewriting the characters, namely Robert.

Cora x Robert ➜ Gifset for each season.

↳ Season 1

"Have you been happy? Really, have I made you happy?"
"Yes. That is, since you fell in love with me. Which, if I remember correctly was about a year after we were married."

You know what I find annoying? That some people seem to be expecting and looking forward to Cora having an affair and cheating on Robert? Because it serves him right? For what? For choosing not to cheat on her even though he was tempted once when they were going through a rough patch?

But even…

Please don’t think I was implying that Cora would stray or that I want that to happen. I have no doubt that Cora will remain 100% faithful and keep her character in tact. I think that anything coming from Cora on the ‘flirt’ side of the storyline will be an assumption by Robert. I am just looking forward to seeing Robert express his feelings about Cora and I think this storyline will give us a chance to see that. I apologize if my earlier post gave that impression.

Oh no, I wasn’t referring to anything you have posted at all! My post was mainly inspired by looking at some comments and tags people have made when reblogging my gifset of Robert’s speech from last week - people who apparently can’t wait for Cora to cheat on Robert.

I’d be happy to see Robert rendered a little jealous and unsure of his place in Cora’s heart. Jealous!Robert is my favourite thing after all, as long as there no real cause for it. :)

But even all that aside, making Cora an adulterer would be a huge disservice to her character. It’s not who she is. Robert can be really thick sometimes, but she loves him very, very much. For her to cheat on him would change everything we’ve come to know and love about her as a character - the woman who loves her family (including Robert) and would do anything for them is not a woman who will jump in bed with some flirtatious flatterer and risk throwing away everything that matters to her. She wouldn’t just be cheating on Robert, she would be risking scandal on her entire family, including her daughters and grandchildren, and Cora would never do that.

For the recorded, I don’t think she will cheat on Robert. I just can’t believe why anyone would even want such a character assassination to happen.
