Storyline

August 1918: Deserted by the baby's father, Ethel has been installed with her child in a cottage on the estate by a sympathetic Mrs. Hughes, who brings her food. Jane, a war widow, has taken Ethel's place as a maid. Vera Bates returns, having spent John's money but with no intention of sticking to their arrangement and planning to make money by selling the story of Lady Mary's indiscretion to Carlisle's newspaper. Tipped off by Anna, Mary goes to see him and explains all, thus scotching Vera's plan as the newspaper owner threatens her with libel action. Having returned to the war, both Matthew and William sustain severe injuries at the Battle of Amiens, fatally in the case of William, who marries Daisy. Mary is glad to become a hospital auxiliary to nurse Matthew, though his spinal damage will, in all probability, leave him paralysed from the waist down and impotent. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

Lady Sybil Crawley: [Matthew has arrived at the hospital] May I stay to settle him in?
Dr. Clarkson: Very well.
Lady Mary Crawley: I want to help too.
Dr. Clarkson: Lady Mary, I appreciate your good intentions but I'm concerned that Captain Crawley's condition may be very distressing for you. Might I suggest that you hang back until the nurses have tidied him up a little?
Lady Mary Crawley: I'm not much good at hanging back I'm afraid. I won't get in your way I promise. But I will stay. You have volunteers don't you? Well, that's what I am. A volunteer.
