Historical massaging aside, I really enjoyed the introduction of Lord Snowdon, and I thought Matthew Goode and Vanessa Kirby had some very sensual, velvety chemistry. Of course, at this point I adore VK and wish they'd let her play Margaret forever so maybe she would have chemistry with a rock...but Matthew Goode clearly had a lot of naughty fun inhabiting Antony Armstrong-Jones. I really enjoyed this particular episode. Or at least all the bits with Margaret and Tony. Don't remember a thing about any of QEII's plotline in this one.

This particular episode was interesting, because I keep assuming some storylines are made up for filler, but instead, are all true. Well, I don’t know about the duel, but how the almost-engagement happened and how it was broken.

I sometimes feel like Margaret inhabits her own series that occassionally has a cross-over episode with the Crown.

*whispers* I would watch that.

I would too, but I don't think it airs in this universe. I imagine that the universe that has that series is somewhat bemused when Margaret has to deal with her sister in these episodes.

The avid photographer's camera in the opening scene is gorgeous.

And was that avid photographer Anthony Armstrong-Jones aka Lord Snowdon aka Mr Princess Margaret?

No duel but hey, more slander (if you can slander the dead) and it serves to introduce Colin Tennant, future owner of the island of Mustique. Ugh, Margaret was not a nice person.

Weird British post-war avocado recipies!

This would have been very hot had I not known how it ends. Don't marry a guy with contempt for you, Margaret!

I did enjoy her tell off to Billy, though.

Oh Margaret, a woman does NOT marry a man like that. She has a torrid affair with him, and then she leaves while the going is good.
