Do you believe Mr. Bates killed Mr. Green?
‘Downton Abbey’ Poll question from season 4, episode 7
This poll question is fairly simple. Mr. Bates was once thought to have killed Vera. Now, he’s suspected of another murder. What do you think?
As a reminder, Anna is curious but feels relieved to believe that Mr. Bates could not have killed Mr. Green as it was an accident that many witness. However, Lady Mary feels differently.
Though Lady Mary feels more certain that Mr. Bates is responsible, she also feels that he did it fairly and should not be punished. (That’s going out on a far limb for a servant, Mary. You might not be a robot, after all.)
