March 1913. Gwen, one of the maids, has bought a typewriter and has applied for a secretarial post. Most of the staff are dismissive of her aspirations but the family - except Violet, of course - are supportive, and youngest daughter Sybil offers to supply a reference. Evelyn Napier, considered an eligible catch for Mary, arrives for the hunt, bringing his handsome friend Kemal Pamuk, a Turkish diplomat, who throws himself at her. He goes to her room at night for sex, during which he dies of a heart attack. Mary, Cora, and head housemaid Anna return the body to his room and agree to say nothing but are seen by Daisy the kitchen maid. The gruesome twosome of O'Brien and Thomas are also suspicious. Matthew spends a delightful day with Edith, the middle daughter, while Mrs. Hughes literally helps Bates out of a painful situation and they become friendly. Written by
