November 1918. Believing her marriage to have been a sham, Daisy is reluctant to accept a widow's pension whilst Robert writes to the father of Ethel's child, only to learn that he was killed in the war. As the Armistice is announced a Canadian soldier, suffering terrible burns, comes to recuperate and declares that he is Patrick, the heir presumed dead on the 'Titanic' and until recently an amnesiac. Only Edith believes him. Carlisle plans to buy a house near Downton and poaches Carson as his butler. He also notes Mary's devotion to Matthew and threatens to expose her affair unless she proves a loyal wife. John returns from a meeting with Vera in London, with a cut on his face. Written by

When the family, staff and officers gather to commemorate the armistice, their attention is centered on the clock about to strike 11. Just before the chimes begin, this clock is shown in a close-up shot to be a tabletop clock. However, several long shots of the room, including during the sounding of the 11 chimes, show a freestanding grandfather clock against the wall behind the earl's right shoulder, which is also showing 11 o'clock and would be ostensibly chiming as well.

You're always goin' up and down to London, Mr. Bates.
I have business in London.
Well, judging by your expression, your business doesn't seem to be too prosperous.
The trick of business is to mind your own.
