Storyline

Violet is shaken when Kuragin confesses that he loves her and wishes to remain with her rather than locate his missing wife. The family then goes to London for Rose's wedding where her sour mother Susan makes it clear that she and estranged husband Shrimpy are only putting up a show of togetherness for the wedding and she is as disapproving of the match as Lord Sinderby. On his stag night Atticus is tricked into appearing shirtless with a prostitute and the photo sent to Rose. Anna and John are summoned to Scotland Yard and told that Green was well-known as a sexual predator though they feign innocence. Anna takes part in an identity parade and is released but later arrested, as she was seen at the spot where Green died. The others return to Downton for the unveiling of the war memorial.

Trivia

When discussing Lady Rose's parents' marital situation, Lady Mary and Lord Grantham allude to the Marlboroughs' divorce, whose marriage resembled much Lord and Lady Grantham's. The duchess, née Consuelo Vanderbilt, was a rich American heiress who married the Duke in order to get a socially advantageous position. Their divorce in 1921, followed by an ecclesiastic annulment in 1926, was a major scandal. See more »

Goofs

The Union Jack is used as a veil over the war memorial and after the unveiling it falls to the ground. According to flag etiquette for the British flag, its use during an unveiling ceremony is discouraged and allowing it to touch the ground is considered disrespectful. A group this patriotic should have known better than to allow that to happen. See more »

Quotes

Lady Edith Crawley: I always forget how much I enjoy London.
Tom Branson: You should go up more often, take an interest in your publishing. You should get involved in the running of the business. You're clever, and a good writer; they're lucky to have you.
Lady Edith Crawley: Mary always talks like she's the only one who'll miss you when you go, but you know I will, too.
Tom Branson: And I'll miss you.

Downton Abbey

Fellowes has successfully managed to make a soap opera melodrama, luxury rather than a necessity. This royal family and the impact it casts upon others surrounding them is the ultimate definition of royalty, in terms of that it spews each of our assumptions of the livelihood of people residing in such palace onto the screen with elegance and stature that does more than people-pleasing work. The emotions comes in plethora of it- hence arguable the titled genre melodrama- but what doesn't come in hand is the content, the writers fiddles with you with such panache that you are rumble down to be gullible enough to nod at anything offered. And this is primary the reason, why in its middle seasons, where the writing was questioned and yet loved and accepted by us effervescently.

Its primary theme that it adapts or conjures for an episode is shared by an entire cast that makes the episode balance and all the tracks, no matter how long they may carry on later, gets a definite period within that hour for you to pin down your decision. The most difficult part of the writers is to pass on information or rumors in this too-big-a-palace but with flawed three dimensional characters, it is weaved out with excellent justifying reasons leaving you in an awe of it.

Fellowes doesn't share its cast, nor a scene, nor humor, nor any anchor that would weight him down to take bold risks, he doesn't compromise on lopping off a character from the screen or adding one despite of being shared by so many, he has managed to reboot the drama until every last viewers gets that point jaggedly on mark. The series is also blessed with incredible cast like Dockery, Bonneville, Carter, Coyle and Smith that stands out among plenty other performances. Downton Abbey is, yes, cheesy, but each aspect of the series owns it, and with commitment like such comes maturity and just good storytelling.

Season 05

Scattering your expectations on where the trajectory was leading towards, this fifth act of these series is clearly a bit mellow and mature one, it believes on mending things rather than marching and with another humble stay at Downton Abbey, no guests ought to regret.

Episode #5.8

An adequate closer to possibly all the tracks except for the unexpected arrest which is obviously the type of cards that writers usually hold for their last act of the season, Bonneville's performance once again carries the chapter off as the all father himself.
