Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Six months later and Mary is still mourning Matthew, leaving the care of baby George to Nanny West. Tom tries to interest her in estate management, to little avail, but Violet eventually persuades her to look to the future. Miss O'Brien leaves without any explanation to take work with Lady Flintshire, Rose's mother. Mrs Hughes is less than happy with Cora's replacement for her, Edna, a former maid who tried to seduce Tom. Edith goes to London, where Michael tells her he is prepared to go to Germany for a divorce so that they can be together. She brings electric kitchen gadgets back, which the maids like but which confuse Mrs Patmore. Jimmy takes Ivy out, and she gets drunk, annoying jealous Daisy and Alfred. Violet's efforts to get Molesley, redundant after Matthew's death, work with her friend Lady Shackleton are sabotaged by the lady's current butler whilst Isobel agrees to rescue Carson's old friend Grigg from the workhouse. Thomas seems unnaturally unpleasant towards Nanny West ... Written by don @ minifie-1

Barrow says to Countess of Grantham that Nanny West isn't "quite all Sir Garnet." This is a reference to Field Marshal Garnet Joseph Wolseley, 1st Viscount Wolseley. "His reputation for efficiency led to the late 19th-century English phrase 'everything's all Sir Garnet', meaning 'all is in order.'" See more »

Isobel Crawley: I understand, but you see, Carson, I'd almost forgotten I had energy and kindness in me. so that's something, isn't it?
