Downton Discussion: What You Need to Know About Episode 4

The second series of Downton Abbey continues, as we rolled through the fourth episode this week. While I didn’t completely love this episode quite as much as last week’s, it was still full of loads of drama and a great many twists and turns that will doubtless have long-lasting repercussions for everyone at Downton, both upstairs and down. And I’m just guessing that it probably made you cry.
