May 1913. A fair comes to the village and here Mrs. Hughes meets up with an old flame, Joe, who once asked her to marry him and does so again. Despite being gay, Thomas escorts Daisy to the fair purely out of spite as he knows William is fond of her. The gesture is not lost on either John Bates or Mrs. Hughes. Gwen is not called for interview for the secretarial post but Sybil agrees to support future applications. A new chauffeur, Tom Branson, arrives. He is well-read and politically aware. Having got one over on Isobel regarding a medical diagnosis, Violet attempts to talk Robert out of a need for an arranged marriage but fails. Mary, seeing herself as no more than a commodity, unburdens herself to Matthew and they get a little closer.
