What a bloody good episode of Downton Abbey, eh? Viewers were left open mouthed as a dinner with an eminent politician became a blood bath – and the future of the Abbey looks to be changed forever by the outcome.
In less gruesome news, Edith went on a date with Bertie, Mary visited a public house with Henry and Hughes and Carson’s first night in didn’t go to plan. Baxter went to court, Denker almost got herself fired and Mason moved into Yewtree farm with the help of Andy, Daisy and co.
Oh, and there were plenty of thought-provoking, funny and wonderfully quoteable one-liners.
Branson had an exciting day ahead of him…
While Andy took on new challenges
And Robert warned Violet about her latest scheme
Branson shared some words of wisdom with Mary
But she had some thoughts of her own on the matter
Meanwhile Mrs Patmore leant Mason a hand
Violet faced scandal
And confusion from her great-grandchildren…
Things all got a bit much at dinner
In more ways than one
Leaving the future of the Abbey changed forever
