Jimmy Kent.

Former male toyboy to Lady Anstruther. Currently first footman at downton abbey. my heart belongs to Thomas, but he just doesn't know it yet.

the excitement is building..

I have a really bad feeling about what’s going to happen to Jimmy this season, and i’ll hate Julian Fellowes even more if he’s writing Jimmy off the show without even a shred of his past being introduced to the audience (excluding some stupid past romance with Lady Anstruther).

Jimmy deserves so much more, I wish Fellowes actually cared about his character. I just feel as if this season is going to be a major injustice to him. People will just think he’s a stuck-up dick who gets it on with the Lady he used to work for..
Just look at the awful storylines (or lack of storylines) he was given in Season 4.

Thommy doesn’t even matter, I just don’t want Jimmy to leave my TV screen with a terrible, underwhelming plot that surrounds it.

Now come on, let’s go up and you can wish me luck.

sdhfskldhfksldfh! my heart!

the look Jimmy’s giving Thomas in the last gif gets me every time…. <333333333

THOMMY PEOPLE… I HAVE A CONFESSION TO MAKE…

I STILL HAVE HOPE FOR THOMMY.

LOOK AT JIMMY. HOW HE SMILES AT THOMAS. HOW HE LOOKS AT HIM.

AND COMPARE JIMMY’S “LOOK OF LOVE” TO HIS EMBARRASSMENT EVERYTIME HE’S NEXT TO / WITH LADY A. …

You’re not alone.  I haven’t stopped believing.

(I’d like to add that it’s a look not only of embarrassment, but sometimes also of genuine discomfort.)

YES. DISCOMFORT. YOU FOUND OUT THE RIGHT WORD.

Whereas Jimmy seems so at ease, so comfortable, so open-hearted when he’s alone with Thomas. And he was even in series 3, when they had the little conversation before the sleep kiss…

I hope so. I don’t know, I do think he looks weirded out by Lady A but I’m just not sold on it having to do with his sexuality or feelings for Thomas or anything.

I’M IN A DARK PLACE, MAN.

the countdown begins.

ITV snippets can be very deceiving though. I remember last year, we all thought Thommy was going to happen, but Julian Fellowes did nothing about it, and made Jimmy an almost non-existent presence in S4.
Hopefully this won’t happen in S5.

Yooooo

Ed Speleers gives us a tiny bit of info on Season 5

it&#8217;s obvious he doesn&#8217;t really want to dance with her, he longs to dance with Mr Barrow..

There once was a Jimmy of Kent

Whose preference seemed possibly bent

When asked if he’s straight

Said, “My hair, not my mate.
I do enjoy head from that gent.”

still hilarious
