This is why we love Downton So much. The Actors have just as much fun with the characters as we do!

John Bates to Anna - Downton Abbey, season/series 4, episode 2 (via ishiptoomanypeopleontv)

Nano Banna of the Day

It’s with some trepidation that Anna, sick, opens the hallway door at Bates’s insistence… to reveal John Bates presenting her with this tray of dinner food.

Obviously, there’s so much to say about this perfect little scene, arguably the first real romantic Banna moment.

For now, I’m just going to point out the vase of flowers (for a while I thought maybe it was some sort of broccoli or fluffy vegetable LOL) on the tray. It’s totally unnecessary, for the purpose of bringing a co-worker/friend some dinner food — which signifies, to me, that the flowers are a clear indication of Bates’s feelings for Anna, though unspoken.

Bates is so reluctant in S1 to fully step out of his shell and show romantic feelings for Anna that I think this moment speaks volumes. Also, imagine him puttering around the grounds at night, looking for those flowers. (Or maybe they had some lying around in the house. I dunno. Still, it’s cute.)

So true AFT. This detail is so significant. We see even more evidence in the deleted scene of just how much effort Bates made for Anna. His tray includes the little flower vase, a little loaf of bread wrapped in a cotton napkin, milk, a helluva lot of butter and dishes covered in decorated white.Gwen also cares for Anna and brings her a tray similar to the one Anna brings to the fired Bates in Ep 1. Her tray has water, sliced bread and utilitarian dinnerware. Bates didn’t just add flowers to his tray. The entire production was a declaration of love for Anna and of their shared love of butter!
