    I am so glad that Edith finally stood up and did what was right for HER and not the family. I wonder if the young man that was the apparent heir that was believed to have drown with the Titanic will come back for Edith.

      Oh, that would be a great plot twist. As a die-hard sentimentalist, I am hoping that Gregson is actually still alive and undercover as a secret agent working to foil Hitler's plans. He will swoop in late in season 6 and whisk Edith and Marigold off to a blissful life in London. But this seems increasingly unlikely.
