Charles leaves, Mary having appointed Tim Drewe as pig-man, but when Anthony Gillingham's projected visit to Downton is announced Mary detects from Anna's reaction that something is wrong and learns the rapist's identity. The visit passes without incident, though Mary turns down a proposal from Anthony, who has broken off his engagement. Mary is alarmed when Rose tells her she is marrying Jack Ross and goes to see the singer. Lady Rosamund plans to take Edith to Switzerland to have her baby and put it up for adoption, but Violet is suspicious. Robert returns for the annual fete and Alfred comes back for a funeral, proposing to Ivy, who declines. Meanwhile, Isobel attracts the admiration of Lord Merton and Molesley forms a friendship with Baxter, though he is curious as to her relationship with Barrow.
