1918. Angry that Cora has reorganized hospital rotas to make life easier for the staff, Isobel leaves for nursing work in France just before news arrives that Matthew and William are missing. In Isobel's absence, her cook, Mrs. Bird, and butler, Molesley, run a soup kitchen for veterans, in which they are joined by Mrs. Patmore and Daisy, who bring leftovers from Downton. O'Brien informs on them to Cora. Robert tracks John Bates down and returns him to Downton Abbey whilst Mrs. Hughes catches Ethel in bed with one of the patients and sacks her, though she is forced to reconsider on learning that the girl is pregnant. Mary finds out that Branson has declared his love for Sybil but agrees to keep quiet about it. Then, whilst the sisters are singing in a fund-raising concert, Matthew and William turn up. Written by
