Storyline

May 1913. A fair comes to the village and here Mrs. Hughes meets up with an old flame, Joe, who once asked her to marry him and does so again. Despite being gay, Thomas escorts Daisy to the fair purely out of spite as he knows William is fond of her. The gesture is not lost on either John Bates or Mrs. Hughes. Gwen is not called for interview for the secretarial post but Sybil agrees to support future applications. A new chauffeur, Tom Branson, arrives. He is well-read and politically aware. Having got one over on Isobel regarding a medical diagnosis, Violet attempts to talk Robert out of a need for an arranged marriage but fails. Mary, seeing herself as no more than a commodity, unburdens herself to Matthew and they get a little closer. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?

Goofs

The reason for Gwen and Sybil's delay in returning from a job interview is that the horse pulling the trap had thrown a shoe, forcing the girls to walk. The horse appears fully shod with shoes visible on all four hooves as it is being walked to a blacksmith. See more »

Quotes

Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham: Won't you miss Ireland?
Tom Branson: Ireland, yes. But not the job. The mistress was a nice lady, but she only had one car and she wouldn't let me drive it over 20 miles an hour. So it was a bit... well, boring, so to speak.
