TV: Downton Abbey Season 3 Episode 2

I must say I felt very let down by the beginning of this episode. I thought that the wedding was left on a cliffhanger from episode 1, where Matthew and Mary were left at the alter.  I spent the aftermath of the episode wondering would one of them change their mind. Flash forward to this week and no sign of the wedding.  No I dos, no confetti outside the church, no first dance, not even a glance at their honeymoon. Oh ITV give us SOMETHING!!
Matthew, Matthew, Matthew, can you please spare us all this 'I broke her heart nonsense'. You didn't and she clearly told you make Mary happy or be happy or something along those lines, on her deathbed. Ok look, I'll admit it, I don't want them to lose the big house because then there is no 'Abbey' in Downton Abbey.
Dame Maggie Smith had, in my opinion, the best line of the episode.
