Violet is shaken when Kuragin confesses that he loves her and wishes to remain with her rather than locate his missing wife. The family then goes to London for Rose's wedding where her sour mother Susan makes it clear that she and estranged husband Shrimpy are only putting up a show of togetherness for the wedding and she is as disapproving of the match as Lord Sinderby. On his stag night Atticus is tricked into appearing shirtless with a prostitute and the photo sent to Rose. Anna and John are summoned to Scotland Yard and told that Green was well-known as a sexual predator though they feign innocence. Anna takes part in an identity parade and is released but later arrested, as she was seen at the spot where Green died. The others return to Downton for the unveiling of the war memorial.

When Violet mentions she attended the wedding of the Earl of Rosebury and Hannah Rothschild, in 1878, this event truly happened. Hannah Primrose (later Countess of Rosebury) inherited her father's fortune in 1874, making her the richest woman in Britain. See more
The Union Jack is used as a veil over the war memorial and after the unveiling it falls to the ground. According to flag etiquette for the British flag, its use during an unveiling ceremony is discouraged and allowing it to touch the ground is considered disrespectful. A group this patriotic should have known better than to allow that to happen. See more

I always forget how much I enjoy London.
You should go up more often, take an interest in your publishing. You should get involved in the running of the business. You're clever, and a good writer; they're lucky to have you.

Mary always talks like she's the only one who'll miss you when you go, but you know I will, too.
And I'll miss you.
