Summary Edit

Returning to Downton in 1924, a new Labour government heralds changes that are being felt throughout the land, as well as above and below stairs.

Plans for a war memorial unexpectedly pit Carson against Robert and Mrs Hughes. While unwanted female attention spells trouble for Jimmy, Thomas gives Baxter an ultimatum. Tom's burgeoning friendship causes Robert concern while Mary is ready to find love again.

Cracks appear in Edith and Drewe’s special arrangement as she increasingly struggles to keep her own motherly love for Marigold in check; this may have disastrous consequences for the whole household. On the sixteenth February 1924, Lord and Lady Grantham hold a party at Downton to celebrate their thirty-fourth wedding anniversary. A careless action by Lady Edith causes a fire to break out in her room. fortunately, Thomas raises the alarm and has everyone get out safely. Mr. Drewe tells Edith that she will take a special interest in Marigold.

Plot Edit

Edith is on a bicycle and arrives near Yew Tree Farm, where she watches from afar to see her own one/two-year-old daughter playing with the clothes Mrs. Drewe is set to hang on a clothesline.
