Downstairs, the servants are starting to consider what effect social changes may have on their working lives. While Daisy's (Sophie McShera) mind is opened to new possibilities, Mrs Patmore (Lesley Nicol) views such new and uncertain paths with trepidation. Anna (Joanne Froggatt) and Bates (Brendan Coyle) have weathered many storms and are finally starting to plan their future.
