Masterpiece: Downton Abbey III: (Episode 6)

Masterpiece Classic

Bates is finally released from prison, to the delight of all except Thomas; who finds himself to be the victim of a trap set by O'Brien. Violet supports her granddaughter Edith's desire to become a journalist, much to the chagrin of Lord Grantham. Edith travels to London to meet with a magazine editor, and accepts his offer for a weekly column. Matthew and Robert continue to be at odds concerning Downton's management, leading to the resignation of the family's long time agent Jarvis. Miss Sybil Branson is baptised at a Catholic Church in Ripon, with the whole Crawley family in attendance. Downton Abbey's annual cricket match with the village takes place, bringing out Lord Grantham's competitive side. Violet's great niece, Lady Rose MacClare, pays a visit to Downton with her husband; and a wild trip to London reveals there is more to her than meets the eye. Carson controls Thomas's future, and Thomas finds an unlikely ally in Bates.

Premiered in UK as Season 3: Episodes 7 and 8
