Original airdate 1 "Episode One" Brian Percival Julian Fellowes 9.25 26 September 2010 Set in April 1912. Robert, Earl of Grantham and his American wife Cora live with their three daughters and numerous servants in Downton Abbey. Though their way of life has existed for generations, suddenly news arrives that threatens their future. Lord Grantham’s cousin, James Crawley, who is Lord Grantham's heir presumptive, and his son, Patrick, both die in the sinking of the RMS Titanic. With no male offspring, a distant cousin becomes heir. But what is worse for the family is that there is an entail on the estate which means that the heir to the title will inherit the land and all the money that Robert gained by marrying Cora. The eldest daughter, Lady Mary had been engaged to Patrick but now the land and wealth could no longer stay with the family. Violet, the Dowager Countess is determined to break the entail even though Lord Grantham and his lawyer seriously doubt it is possible. Meanwhile Lord Grantham hires lame John Bates to be his valet, to the consternation of the butler, Mr Carson and the other servants. However the housemaid Anna takes a liking to him. Thomas, a footman, who wanted the job, repeatedly tries to undermine Bates, with the help of Cora's maid, the ill-natured Miss O'Brien. Cora and Carson convince Robert that Bates is unsuitable for the job. Bates is extremely upset at this news. The family is pleased on learning that the young Duke of Crowborough plans to visit, seeing him as an excellent match for Mary but the Duke seems less interested in Mary than in prying in the servants' rooms and his manner cools completely when he learns that Robert does not intend to fight the entail. It is revealed that the Duke had a relationship with Thomas. Thomas had actually informed him about the possibility that Mary would now inherit hoping to get a job as valet in return. As the Duke cannot offer him the job Thomas tries to blackmail him but he reveals that he managed to retrieve his love letters that Thomas had kept and quickly burns them before Thomas can stop him. Robert has a change of heart and asks Bates not to leave. The episode ends with a glimpse of the new heir Matthew Crawley as he learns of his good fortune. 2 "Episode Two" Ben Bolt Julian Fellowes 9.97 3 October 2010 Set in September 1912. Matthew Crawley, a young solicitor and the new heir, arrives at Downton Abbey with his mother, Isobel. He is reluctant to adapt to his new mode of life but his mother feels that they should avoid satisfying the family's assumptions about their behaviour. Matthew ridicules the prospect of marrying one of the daughters when Mary suddenly appears and he is immediately attracted to her. The Dowager is openly hostile towards Isobel as is Mary towards Matthew. There is also some culture clash between the families due to their differing aristocratic and upper middle class backgrounds. Matthew astonishes Violet when he declares his intention to continue working as a solicitor. Isobel too is determined to hold her own against Violet and as she trained as a nurse during the Anglo-Boer War, occupies herself with the local hospital. Meanwhile Mr Carson is extremely distressed by a letter and Anna sees him stealing food. It turns out that Carson was formerly a music-hall performer and was being blackmailed by his show partner Charles Grigg, now a petty thief, to whom he was providing food and lodging as he hid from the law. However, only Mr Bates, Anna, Lady Sybil and Lord Grantham are privy to this so there is no fear of exposure. Lord Grantham is merely amused by Carson's background and pays off Grigg, threatening to turn him over to the police if he returns. The hostility between Mrs Crawley and the Dowager escalates when Isobel pressures Dr Clarkson into performing pericardiocentesis on a hospital patient suffering from dropsy. The Dowager tries to prevent this but the treatment is successful and Robert decides to make Mrs Crawley chair of the hospital board feeling that his mother has too much control. However the Dowager herself begins to consider the possibility of Mary marrying Matthew, but Mary is firmly opposed to this plan. 3 "Episode Three" Ben Bolt Julian Fellowes 8.97 10 October 2010 Set in late November 1912. Cora is pleased when Lady Mary informs her that Evelyn Napier, the wealthy son of a peer and possible suitor, will be visiting. However he arrives with a dashing Turkish diplomat Mr Kemal Pamuk, who is in London for the Albanian independence negotiations and Mary is completely smitten with him. Mary is not the only one however: Thomas gets a little too close to the Turk. He offers to spare him however, provided Thomas will do something in return. Meanwhile Edith tries to interest Matthew by offering to show him the local churches. To her disappointment, he is far more interested in the buildings than herself. Bates purchases a device to correct his limp but this proves to be extremely painful and injurious until Mrs Hughes discovers it and makes him get rid of it. Gwen's secret is revealed: she has been training to be a secretary, by correspondence. She is dejected by the other servants' scepticism and disapproval of her choice but Bates and Anna encourage her, as does Lady Sybil. During and after dinner, Lady Mary has eyes only for Mr Pamuk but when he surprises her by forcibly kissing her, she rejects him. Undeterred he goes to her room that night, led by Thomas, and manages to seduce her. But in the middle of the night he suddenly dies in her bed. To avert a scandal, Mary is forced to seek the help of Anna, the head housemaid, and her mother, to help her move Pamuk's body back into his own bed. Unknown to them, Daisy, the scullery maid, sees them carrying the body. Cora is horrified by Mary's behaviour but promises not tell Robert as it would break his heart. Mary is visibly upset by Pamuk's death and Napier realises he doesn't have a chance with her. 4 "Episode Four" Brian Kelly Julian Fellowes, Shelagh Stephenson 9.70 17 October 2010 Set in May 1913. A travelling fair arrives in the neighbouring village. Mrs Hughes is reunited with a former suitor, who proposes to her again. Thomas asks Daisy to accompany him to the fair simply to annoy William who is fond of her. Molesley suffers from an allergic reaction, prompting much debate between Violet and Isobel. Carson fears there is a thief at Downton. Lady Sybil continues her experimentation with feminism with the aid and inspiration of the new, politically minded Irish chauffeur, Branson. 5 "Episode Five" Brian Kelly Julian Fellowes 9.40 24 October 2010 Set in late July 1913. Bates discovers that Thomas is stealing wine from the cellar. Worried that he will be reported, Thomas attempts to frame Bates for stealing one of Lord Grantham's antique snuffboxes, but his plans are thwarted. Bates and Anna make their feelings known to one another. Meanwhile, rumours are beginning to circulate about Lady Mary and the "handsome Turk". Daisy is finding it increasingly difficult to keep quiet about what she has seen, and after some cajoling from Miss O'Brien, she tells her story to Lady Edith, who reveals the truth to the Turkish ambassador. 6 "Episode Six" Brian Percival Julian Fellowes, Tina Pepler 9.84 31 October 2010, Set in May 1914. Lady Sybil's interest in politics and women's rights is kindled by the upcoming by-election and is the cause of major disagreement between her and Lord Grantham. Meanwhile, presumably as a result of Lady Edith's letter, rumours about Lady Mary and the "handsome Turk" intensify, reaching the ears of Carson and the Dowager herself. Violet confronts Cora who is forced to tell her the truth, leaving Violet almost as shocked by her behaviour as Mary's. Edith finds an admirer in Sir Anthony Strallan, after he is impressed by her thoughtfulness and genuine interest in him. Miss O'Brien and Thomas continue to plot against Bates, trying to frame him for the theft of a wine bottle – which in fact Thomas stole, witnessed by Bates.

However Bates surprises Carson, Mrs Hughes and Anna by revealing that he was once a drunkard and has been in prison for theft; but Carson is unwilling to let him go, realising that there is more to his story. Sybil makes Branson take her to Ripon under false pretences to attend a political meeting. However she is injured when it gets out of hand but is rescued by Matthew as he is returning from work. Lord Grantham blames Branson but Sybil defends him saying how he tried to stop her. Later that night Mary and Matthew talk and reminisce, leading to them confessing their love. Lord and Lady Grantham are delighted to learn that Matthew asked Mary to marry him but to Cora's chagrin, Mary feels she cannot accept his proposal without telling him her scandalous secret. The Dowager apologises for her earlier harsh treatment of Cora and they decide that if the match between Mary and Matthew does not come off, they will marry her off to some Italian. 7 "Episode Seven" Brian Percival Julian Fellowes 10.77 7 November 2010 Set in July and August 1914. Tensions abound following the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand. The family returns from London after Sybil’s coming out, with the exception of Mary who is staying with her aunt and has yet to give Matthew his answer. When to everyone’s great surprise Cora discovers that she is pregnant after eighteen years, Mary’s aunt, Lady Rosamund Painswick, advises her reconsider marrying Matthew since his situation would change completely if the baby turns out to be a boy. Mary learns from Evelyn Napier that it was Edith and not he who originated the rumours about her and Pamuk. While in London, Miss O’Brien has discovered the details of Bates’ crime: while he was soldier he stole the army silver. However Carson and the Earl realise that Bates is keeping something back. After Mrs Patmore’s condition worsens, Lord Grantham sends her to London to have cataract surgery.. Anna goes with her and discovers from Bates' mother that he took the blame for his wife as he believed that he had ruined her life, although his mother does not agree with him. Mrs Patmore is temporarily replaced by the Mrs Crawley’s Mrs Bird and Mrs Patmore is concerned that her cooking will be preferred to her own so asks Daisy to spoil the family’s meals. However as the ruined dishes were not sent upstairs but provided to the servants, Daisy’s actions are discovered; but Mrs Bird sympathises with Daisy's loyalty to Mrs Patmore and upon Mrs Patmore’s recovery and return, she manages to win over Mrs Patmore. Matthew is angered by Mary’s hesitancy following Cora’s pregrancy, declaring that her decision should purely depend on whether she loves him or not. Anticipating the war, Thomas finds a non-combatant role in the Army Medical Corps with the help of Dr Clarkson. When Mosley finds Thomas trying to steal Carson’s wallet, the Earl tells Carson to wait until the upcoming charity garden party to act on it when Thomas opportunely hands in his resignation to join the Corps. Mary confronts Edith about revealing her secret and implies that she will exact revenge. Learning that Sir Anthony Strallan promises to propose to Edith at a garden party, Mary manipulates him into thinking Edith finds him old and boring so he leaves without explanation. O'Brien is angry when she mistakenly believes that Cora is going to replace her and takes advantage of an opportunity to punish the Countess by leaving soap below her bath. She regrets it almost immediately but it is too late. Cora slips and miscarries and there is further heartache in that the baby would have been a boy. O’Brien is extremely upset but Thomas is callous. He also ridicules William for mourning his mother so deeply, leading to a fight between the two but Carson and Branson intervene and stop it. A telephone is installed in the house and Sybil manages to get a interview for Gwen as secretary for the phone company. When Branson conveys the good news that Gwen has secured the post, his obvious friendliness with Sybil leads Mrs Hughes to warn him to take care not get too close to her. Mosley’s interest in Anna leads Bates to imply that he returns her affections. Mary is now prepared to marry Matthew and is heartbroken when tells her he cannot be sure of her motives and says he will leave Downton. Lord Grantham receives a telegram and announces that Britain is at war with Germany, marking the beginning of World War I.

Lord Grantham agrees, assuming he is some distant relation, sharing common ancestry but he stuns everyone by declaring that he is Patrick Crawley, the supposedly deceased heir. His story is that he survived the Titantic but suffered from amnesia so he was unable to identify himself and lived as a Canadian until a wartime experience restored his memory. Most of the others vehemently deny the possibility even though he remembers many details that only Patrick is likely to have known. However Edith believes in him, growing attached to him as he claims that he was always in love with her. Then, Lord Grantham's investigation casts doubt on the Canadian officer's claim, revealing that Patrick Crawley had a friend who emigrated to Canada, leading to his sudden departure, leaving behind a note for Edith that is deliberately ambiguous as to his identity.

As a result of his recovery Matthew announces that he and Lavinia intend to be married soon. This leads Violet to inform him that Mary is still in love with him but Matthew feels obliged to marry Lavinia as she was prepared to sacrifice her life for him. Meanwhile, Richard Carlisle distresses Anna by asking her to spy on Mary and his behaviour leads Carson to reject his offer of employment. Cora is worried about Isobel's determination to convert Downton Abbey into a convalescent home for some more time until Violet slyly directs her to the plight of the refuges as a cause that has greater need of her energies. Bates reels from the news about Vera after it appears that she committed suicide in order to frame him.

While Lavinia is resting upstairs, Matthew finds himself alone with Mary and tells her what Violet said to him: that he should marry her. Both of them acknowledge he could not as it would be terribly cruel to Lavinia. However, they then kiss just as Lavinia is coming down the stairs.

Fearing the outcome of Lavinia’s illness with regard to Matthew and Mary, Richard Carlisle comes to Downton Abbey. Daisy is distressed by William’s father’s request to visit him. Ethel is surprised to learn that Major Bryant’s parents want to see her but his father wants to take her child away permanently.

However, their night-time encounter is interrupted and remains unconsummated; and Jane decides to leave. With the possibility of more trouble regarding Vera's death, Anna insists that she and Bates should marry that she may be able to support him through his difficulties as his wife. They marry in secret, with Lady Mary's permission and she arranges for them to spend their wedding night in a guest room. Cora becomes seriously ill and Clarkson fears the worst. O’Brien tirelessly cares for her and tries to ask for her forgiveness. However it is Lavinia who succumbs to the flu and dies saying that it is best for Matthew. Racked with guilt, Matthew tells Mary that any relationship between them is now impossible. Somewhat chastened by the recent events, Lord Grantham reluctantly gives his blessing to Sybil and Branson. The episode ends with Bates’ arrest for the murder of his wife.
