Lady Cora shows her fierceness when Mrs. Crawley becomes quite bossy. Lady Mary finds out about Branson's romantic interests with Lady Sybil. William and Matthew are missing. A concert for the wounded men is held to cheer them up, and it has a sweet ending to it.

I am really a huge fan of this series. Every episode is really amazing.
