Poor Edith. Being left at the altar, would be so horrible. I'm loving season 3 so far. Anyone else think maybe Bates actually killed his wife?
Bates wife died from arsenic poisoning, I think one of the staff (Mr.Barrow) killed Mrs. Bates.
I wonder US show the kiss between Mr. Barrow and the Duke. I read that scene was banned in some countries in Europe.

I thought she killed herself (injested the arsenic) to frame him?
Edith was marrying out of desperation, not love. That man was 50 years old. She was only 25 years old and he didn't want to burden her as he got older.

No, i think Mr.Barrow or Lady Gratham maid killed Bates wife. The CSI in Edwardian times was horrible. LOL
I wasn't implying any CSI sleuthing. I thought it was inferred that Mrs. Bates, Vera, told someone she was going to "poison" herself to frame him. Course, I could be thinking of something else or totally making that up.
