Watching her son become married to an American can't have been easy for Violet, but over time she seems to have grown fond of her daughter in law. With the common interest of breaking the entail for Mary's sake, her and Cora become allies and perhaps even friends when they share the confidence of Mary's scandal.
With a witty retort and opinion for any situation, Violet likes to think she is still running the great house which she ran for 30 odd years. She likes being in control and finds the interfering ways of the upstart heir's mother most infuriating. Her and Isobel are soon at loggerheads and disagree and argue over many small and large issues.
With two feet firmly in the past, Violet hates change of any sort. She hankers for a simpler world and finds modern technology and concepts, like swivel chairs, weekends and electricity, most perplexing.
With war on the way, just how will Violet cope with all the rapid change? Will her and Isobel ever learn to work together in the face of two major problems, the first world war and how to get Mary and Matthew back together - for the sake of Downton and their own happiness.3/8/2011 .

I love Violet, she gets all the best lines and Maggie smith does a really good job of portraying her ancient mannerisms and love of old traditions6/28 #2
