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.

Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: Oh yes, what's that?
Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham: She reminds me of Michael Gregson. Just tell me if I'm wrong.
Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: You're not wrong. Don't tell Edith you've guessed.
Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham: Why not? It certainly makes things a good deal clearer than they were.
Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham: Just don't, not yet. Mary doesn't know either, nor Tom. Please let it be Edith's secret a little while longer.
Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham: Very well. I must admit, it's an unusual sensation to realize there's a secret in this house I'm actually privy ...
