Masterpiece: Downton Abbey III: (Episode 2)

Masterpiece Classic

Matthew receives a letter that Lavinia's late father had left for him explaining that even though he knew Matthew had broken Lavinia's heart, he still wanted him to have his money. Matthew finally accepts and saves Downton, prompting Lord Grantham to make Matthew an equal and joint master of Downton. Edith's wedding day finally arrives, but a late turn of events ruins everything. Mrs. Hughes receives some good news concerning her medical condition, much to the obvious relief of both Mr. Carson and Mrs. Patmore. In prison, Bates continues to have problems with a cellmate who tries to get him into trouble by planting drugs in his bunk.

Premiered in UK as Season 3: Episode 3
