Episode Summary

EDIT

Lady Sybil expresses her interest in politics to Lord Grantham, who isn't at all pleased to hear of her venture to the debate, and things take a drastic turn when she's injured at the bi-election results. Meanwhile, Lady Mary and Matthew continue to get closer, leading to a proposal of marriage, much to Cora and Violet's delight. However, the events surrounding Mr. Pamuk's death may put a spanner in the works.

Thomas continues his campaign to get rid of Mr. Bates from Downton with the help of O'Brien and a misguided Daisy by accusing him of stealing the wine from the cellar.

  • Will there soon be wedding bells at Downton Abbey?

    9.0
    Lord Grantham is not at all pleased that his youngest daughter, Lady Sybil, is showing a strong interest in politics. He finds the whole thing distasteful and highly unsuitable for a young lady. When she injured during a rally, he is, predictably, furious.



    Meanwhile, on a happier note, Cousin Matthew, the heir apparent to Downton Abbey, proposes to the fiesty Lady Mary and her mother and grandmother have extremely high hopes that a match may be made in order to secure not only the future of the great estate but also of Cora's money, which is a large part of the reason that the estate has survived.



    Of course, there is always a spanner in the works somewhere and the best laid plans of mice and men do not necessarily run smoothly.moreless
