Was it just us or did a whole lot happen in Downton Abbey's fourth episode? Like a whole lot? (Details here if you need a quick refresher.) We have no doubt Episode 5 will keep up the steady trot. Turn to ITV at 9 p.m. Sunday, October 20, for the latest episode.
So what can we expect from Season 4 Episode 5? A new lady's maid, for one thing. Season 4 seems to be the season of new hired help with Cora Crawley (Elizabeth McGovern) going through lady's maids like Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael) goes through unavailable men (sorry, girl). The new face, Baxter (Raquel Cassidy), appears to know Thomas Barrow (Rob James-Collier), which can only mean good things for Thomas and bad things for everyone else. Also, Mr. Bates (Brendan Coyle) tries to figure out what's happened to his beloved wife, Anna (Joanne Froggatt), while we simultaneously hope he does and does not find out the truth and take justice into his own hands.
Upstairs, Lady Mary Crawley (Michelle Dockery) comes to terms with her decision to turn down the proposal of gallant Lord Gillingham (Tom Cullen) while Tom Branson (Allen Leech) decides what's next for him and Baby Sybbie.
