Anna and Bates in Season Four of Downton Abbey

From Feminist Fiction:

"Although I don’t want to assume that everything will take a turn for the horrible, there’s a lot of potential for the story to put Bates front-and-center from now on. We could see Bates as he tracks down the valet. Bates as he attacks him. Bates held back by a pleading Anna, or Bates arrested for murder. Although I wouldn’t mind a Bates-less show, this cannot be Bates’ story, and any further movement in their direction, or any suggestion that his violent reaction is anything other than unreasonable selfishness, threatens to mar an otherwise excellent season."
