September 1920. Bates is freed from prison, to the resentment of Thomas.
Upon O'Brien's advice, Thomas makes a midnight visit to Jimmy's room and falls into O'Brien's trap.
Branson plans to baptise baby Sybil a Catholic. While Lord Grantham discourages Edith's desire to become a journalist, Violet supports her granddaughter.
Edith comes to London to meet with a magazine editor, and accepts his offer for a weekly column. Branson's drunkard brother comes to Downton. Matthew continues to confront Lord Grantham about the estate's mismanagement, leading to the resignation of the family's long time agent Jarvis.
Tom is appointed as the new family agent upon Violet's suggestion. Miss Sybil Branson is baptised at a Catholic Church in Ripon with the whole Crawley family in presence.
I love the Matthew and Mary scene. I hope Edith finds happiness soon, happy she is sticking up for herself. Thomas is in hot water! Oh dear! xx
