“If anyone had told me I’d be friends with … a man like you … I’d not have believed them.” Jimmy’s code for: “I was massively homophobic until I met you.” —

It’s interesting to see there are as many interpretations of this sentence as there are people hearing / reading it… I still haven’t figured out mine.

THAT MOMENT WHEN SOMEONE SAYS “SEX” ON DOWNTON ABBEY…

For straight people who want to paint Thomas Barrow as a black and white villain: 

He is understandably pissed off at Baxter and Bates because they are ACTUAL CRIMINALS that have broken the law for wrongdoing and yet are now forgiven and accepted by their community. Thomas just being who he is, as a gay man, makes him a criminal, and that’s not a ‘crime’ he can ever escape or be ‘forgiven’ for by the majority of people. Therefore he resents them.

It doesn’t make his nastiness to Baxter right, but it puts a bit of perspective on it.
