Summary Edit

Set in April, 1924.[1]

Elsewhere, Daisy continues to struggle with her studies, as she does her best to improve her prospects so she doesn't need to be an assistant cook all her life. And when Mrs Patmore comes up with an idea that might solve everything, could this provide the chink of light Daisy's been searching for?

Thomas, meanwhile, continues his bullying of Baxter, doing his best to ruin things for her at the house if she doesn't play his game - and it looks like he could even mess up her friendship with Molesley too, if he continues.

Rose's attention is on a slightly more light-hearted issue, meanwhile, as she does her best to present the benefits of having a wireless at Downton. Mary again puts her reputation on the line, making Anna a reluctant accomplice.

Plot Edit

Anna and Mrs Hughes are tiding up Edith's burned and charred room, and come across a photograph of an infant girl. They assume that Edith might have a child about whom no one is aware.
