a white blank page and a swelling rage, rage.
you did not think when you sent me to the brink, to the brink.
you desired my attention but denied my affections, my affections.
so tell me now, where was my fault in loving you with my whole heart.

I actually didn’t expect so many from the S1 scripts! (the S2 ones are what I’m really waiting for!) This little scene is from 1.07, between Daisy sabotaging Mrs Bird’s food and Anna at the barracks researching Mr Bates.
Why do they cut all the good ones?!
INT/EXT. MOTOR CAR/DOWNTON. DAY.
Sybil comes out of the house and runs into the car.
SYBIL: Go! Quickly!
BRANSON: Where’s the fire?
SYBIL: I have to put Gwen’s letter through their door and be back in time to dress for dinner.
BRANSON: I think it’s terrific m’lady. What you’re doing. I think you’re terrific.
He turns as he says this, and since she is leaning forward, their faces are only a few inches apart. For a moment, they are just a young couple, flushed with excitement Then she remembers herself, lowers her lashes and sits back.
SYBIL: I don’t want to be terrific. I want to be successful.
HOW DOWNTON ABBEY SHOULD END: It’s 1931. With the entail abolished by the Real Property Act of 1925, Matthew has managed to legitimize a will that appoints his and Mary’s daughter heiress to the estate. The legacy of what has always been her home now in her daughter’s hands and the country one step closer to gender equality, something her departed youngest sister passionately and admirably fought for as early as in her teens, Mary has accomplished the one thing in life she’s wished for most and she is, at last, utterly and perfectly happy.
