tbh Thomas looks like he’s going to be just fine right there (obviously
could be wrong), but I’m dying to know what or who he’s looking at?!
Realistically the fire is probably a Baxter-and-Thomas centric, scheme-gone-wrong kind of thing, so maybe he’s looking at Baxter?
It could also be Jimmy and Lady A drama with the scheme-gone-wrong theme, which could be really awesome.
Or it could be neither, Idk. Upstairs freak out, maybe? Someone knocked over a lamp? Lord Grantham has a crazy wife in the attic who set fire to Cora’s orange juice collection?
If it’s Baxter related, then maybe her secret is that she’s a pyromaniac and was fired (hehe) from her last job for setting the house on fire.
