As the day-to-day lives at Downton Abbey continue, the series seemed to get more exciting.
Lady Mary is seduced in her bedroom by a visiting Turkish diplomat. He suddenly dies the same night. With the help of her mother and a maid they take his body back to his room to avoid a scandal. This event surprised me - happening in such a proper house.
Bates, the valet, is bothered by his limp. He is tortured by a new brace, which is not helping in any way.
It is very obvious that one of Lady Mary's younger sisters has her eye on the future inheritor of Downton Abbey - Matthew Crawley.
