What's O'Brien up to? Clearly she has a plan to ruin Thomas, and it involves the new footman, Jimmy Kent. She gets the two to work together repairing clocks (who knew Thomas was the expert clocksman), where he gets a bit too touchy-feeling with Jimmy's shoulder. Later, when Thomas touches him again, O'Brien notices what's going on, yet still tells Jimmy to stick by Thomas side for help. Then, a little devious O'Brien smirk.
