    Summary

    After Thomas' suicide attempt, we didn't get to see much of what he did, or what happened, that helped him to eventually feel better. It's unlikely he got any professional therapy, but it seems to me that something had to happen that helped him to change. This is my take on what happened--the work he did with himself, and the interactions he had with the people who care about him--that helped him to eventually decide to go on living, and in particular in this story, how he got back to work.

    I'll add more character and relationship tags as I go.

    Summary

    Something must have happened to his brain when he'd tried to kill himself, a lack of oxygen or something, and now he was hallucinating all the people who had died at Downton Abbey. Lady Sybil and William and Mr Pamuk, that was just his guilty mind playing tricks on him. The others were just from stories he had heard during his time at the Abbey. The Black Monk and Grey Lady. That must be it, and it was probably only temporary. He only wished the ghosts knew that so they would leave him alone.
