Episode 4.04 is the fourth episode of the fourth season of Downton Abbey, and the twenty-ninth episode overall.

It first aired on the 13th October, 2013 on ITV in the UK. It aired in the US as part 3 on January 19, 2014 on most PBS stations.


Amid the fallout of the eventful house party a trip to the bright lights of London is planned. Here Sir John Bullock shows his true colours and Rose finds gallantry comes from an unexpected quarter. Gregson shares ambitious plans with Edith, taking their relationship to another level. Back at the Abbey Mary faces a pressing question about her future, Isobel accepts an offer from Dr Clarkson which rekindles her social conscience, and the manipulative Edna finds herself outmaneuvered. Below stairs Carson reveals surprisingly intimate details of his former life, and Daisy’s clumsy attempt to get closer to Alfred may push him further away.
