Secrets could be exposed as Rosamund arrives at Downton following Edith's shock departure. Rose is delighted to introduce Atticus and his parents to the Abbey, while Anna and Bates start thinking about a fresh start, now that the worst of their problems are seemingly behind them. Molesley is concerned to see Daisy becoming disillusioned with her studies, and Isobel makes a happy announcement, but there may be trouble ahead. Violet has her hands full with her warring servants, while Mary and Blake seize an opportunity to send Gillingham a strong message.
Love is in the air but will there be a happy ending?Events are gathering apace as we head towards next week's finale, but as the family try to track down Edith, Violet panics over whether she should reveal her granddaughter's secret. Meanwhile, we're loving the sweet, blossoming romance between Rose and Atticus, but there are some doubts flying about as to whether they can really be together. We enjoy seeing a spot of veteran courtship, too, and Isobel has a lovely glow as she announces her engagement, although Lord Merton's supercilious sons don’t seem to be that welcoming of their future stepmother. Elsewhere, we’re getting a bit anxious as concerns grow for Isis the dog, and Branson is in a quandary about his and Sybbie’s future...
