Storyline

Mary receives a letter from Matthew's effects, naming her as his sole heir and therefore the owner of half the estate. Encouraged by Violet, she agrees to shadow Tom and learn more about the running of Downton and its surrounding properties. Edna makes an inauspicious start as Cora's maid but soon forms an alliance with Thomas to discredit Anna. Anna herself accompanies Rose to a tea-dance in York for servants, where Rose, pretending to be a maid, attracts gardener Sam Thawley but also provokes a fight so that a hurried exit is required as the police arrive. Later, Sam turns up at Downton Abbey. Isobel learns that Carson fell out with Charlie Grigg many years earlier over a love triangle. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

Charles Carson: [talking about his show business sweetheart, whose picture Mrs. Hughes has seen] People drift in and out of your life, don't they? Truth to tell, I feel she treated me badly. What does it matter, anyway? We shout and scream and wail and cry, but in the end we must all die.
Mrs. Hughes: [sarcastically] Well, that's cheered me up. Thank you. Now I'll get on with my work.
