SPOILER ALERT: Don't continue if you haven't seen Downton Abbey, Season 5, Episode 4!
So last night we witnessed Lady Mary dump the smug Lord Gillingham at the Peter Pan Statue in Kensington Gardens of all places.
The idyllic park that witnessed milord's humiliation is west of Hyde Park in Central London. It's also the subject of J.M. Barrie's wonderful and wistful sequel to Peter Pan called, "Peter Pan in the Kensington Gardens" and was once illustrated by Arthur Rackham, the Edwardian illustrator who influenced Brian Froud (who created the characters in Labyrinth, one of our favorite fairy films).
Lady Mary's sly agenda of dumping Lord Gillingham here so he wouldn't "make a scene" backfired. He made a huge scene...refusing to accept Mary's kiss off--all in front of Peter Pan!
