Violet is shaken when Kuragin confesses that he loves her and wishes to remain with her rather than locate his missing wife. The family then goes to London for Rose's wedding where her sour mother Susan makes it clear that she and estranged husband Shrimpy are only putting up a show of togetherness for the wedding and she is as disapproving of the match as Lord Sinderby. On his stag night Atticus is tricked into appearing shirtless with a prostitute and the photo sent to Rose. Anna and John are summoned to Scotland Yard and told that Green was well-known as a sexual predator though they feign innocence. Anna takes part in an identity parade and is released but later arrested, as she was seen at the spot where Green died. The others return to Downton for the unveiling of the war memorial. Written by

When discussing Lady Rose's parents' marital situation, Lady Mary and Lord Grantham allude to the Marlboroughs' divorce, whose marriage resembled much Lord and Lady Grantham's. The duchess, née Consuelo Vanderbilt, was a rich American heiress who married the Duke in order to get a socially advantageous position. Their divorce in 1921, followed by an ecclesiastic annulment in 1926, was a major scandal. See more
The Union Jack is used as a veil over the war memorial and after the unveiling it falls to the ground. According to flag etiquette for the British flag, its use during an unveiling ceremony is discouraged and allowing it to touch the ground is considered disrespectful. A group this patriotic should have known better than to allow that to happen. See more
