*** Amazingly, all of this is {{Jossed}}; moreover, Molesley stops being the resident ButtMonkey and finally has a run of ''good'' luck that allows him some dignity and a life of his own.

[[WMG:Bertie's cousin Lord Hexham isn't actually dead]]
He's been heavily implied to be gay and headed for a [[TheBeard sham marriage]]. It's noted that his body was buried quickly, before Bertie could get to Tangiers and make funeral arrangements, which is normal because of the climate... but still awfully convenient if he'd wanted to [[FakingTheDead fake his death]] so he could be free. There are two possible (slightly crazier) corollaries to this theory: he could now [[MeetCute run into Thomas]] and decide Thomas, with his [[TallDarkAndSnarky haughty good looks]] and [[JerkassWoobie air of tragedy]], is his [[TheMuse personal muse]], so decide to [[StartingANewLife run away with him]]. It's possible that after his [[InterruptedSuicide suicide attempt]], Thomas might have problems with his hands, in addition to his damaged hand from (trying to get out of) the war, leaving him unsuited for service (leading to some further misery for him, as he realizes the Crawleys are keeping him on entirely out of pity)... but no less suited for posing for paintings.\\
Or, alternately, Thomas could have been [[NewOldFlame previously acquainted]] with Bertie's cousin, somehow or other, and they've kept in touch as pen pals or something like that, and Bertie's cousin actually faked his death so they could run away together, but somehow [[PoorCommunicationKills didn't manage to convey his plan to Thomas in time]], which is why after all the shit he's been through, Thomas [[DrivenToSuicide hit rock bottom]] in the same episode in which we learn Bertie's cousin is dead -- he found out his longtime friend/maybe something more was dead, and felt he'd lost the last little bit of anything he had left to live for. Cue [[ReunionKiss touching reunion]] in the Christmas special.

* Also, another episode or series of episodes around 1933 will involve a German Jew claiming to be Cora's cousin on her father's side[[note]]Isidore Levinson was almost certainly a German Jew, given his name and time period; "Levinson" is a characteristically Ashkenazi name, and the Polish and Russian Jews didn't start arriving in the US until the 1880s, while the major influx of German Jews came in the 1840s-70s, as a result of the anti-Semitic reaction after the Revolutions of 1848[[/note]] trying to escape to Britain.
