The setting now is 1927 and Lord and Lady Grantham (Hugh Bonneville and Elizabeth McGovern) receive a letter throwing the estate into a flurry of activity: King George V (Simon Jones) and Queen Mary (Geraldine James) will be coming to stay and make a military inspection of local toops. Lady Mary Talbot, the Crawley's eldest daughter calls back retired butler, Mr Carson (Jim Carter) to work with the current butler Thomas Barrow (Robert James-Collier) and Anna (Joanne Froggatt) to ensure the visit is a success. However, the downstairs staff become enraged when the monarch brings in his own servants and chef who pull rank. There is a visit from a mysterious military fellow who has disturbing plans for Irish chauffeur and former revolutionary Tom Branson (Allen Leech). Meanwhile the formidable Dowager Countess of Grantham (Maggie Smith) is perturbed that Maud, Lady Bagshaw, Queen Mary's Lady-in-waiting, is included in the tour. There are pre-wedding tensions for cook Daisy (Sophie McShera) and footman Andy (Michael Fox); a pregnancy for the endlessly beleaguered Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael); a clandestine gay rendezvous for butler Thomas Barrow; an inheritance battle; a family member with a secret identify; a thief on the loose; a distractingly attractive plumber; and an announcement from the Dowager Countess.
