Storyline

July 1914. In London former suitor Evelyn Napier assures Lady Mary that it was Edith, not he, who spread gossip about her and Kemal. Mary counters by wrecking her sister's marriage plans with Sir Anthony. Robert is reluctant to dismiss John even though O'Brien and Thomas have obtained a letter claiming that he stole from a previous employer. Anna accompanies Mrs. Patmore to London for eye tests, resulting in corrective surgery and, whilst there, discovers that John took the blame for the theft for his ex-wife Vera, a fact which Robert is pleased to hear. Thomas, fed up at his failure to get John sacked, and sensing war on the way, joins the Army Medical Corps whilst Sybil finally gets Gwen her secretarial post. Cora is pregnant, a fact which puts the proposed marriage between Mary and Matthew in doubt, should the baby be a son and heir. However, thanks to O'Brien leaving a bar of soap on the floor, Cora slips and miscarries. All the staff except O'Brien cheer William on as he beats ... Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

Mrs. Patmore had cataract surgery. During that time period, intra-ocular lenses were not yet invented and anyone having cataract surgery would need very thick eyeglasses to compensate for the change in prescription due to no longer having their natural eye lens. Without such eyeglass correction, patients would be so blurred they would be barely able to function. Mrs. Patmore is repeatedly shown doing household tasks with no eyeglasses, and at times, she is wearing a very low powered reading glass which would be completely inadequate for near point tasks.
