Season 2 (synopses: iTunes)

2.1: The original UK version, Downton Abbey Season Two begins with Part One–The Great War unsettles life at Downton and Isobel’s surprising news about Matthew rocks the family further. New maid Ethel ruffles O’Brien’s feathers and Bates returns with life-changing news for Anna.

2.2: Carson strives to keep standards high with disastrous personal consequences. Lady Rosamund is eager to unearth Lavinia and Carlisle’s secret. The death of a wounded soldier motivates Isobel and Sybil to see Downton in a different light. Shellshocked new valet, Lang, arrives as William gets his call up papers and is love in the air for both Edith and Mary?

2.3: Tensions flare between Isobel and Cora. There’s worrying news about Matthew and William. Ethel’s flirting with Major Bryant lands her in more trouble than she could ever imagine. Branson decalres his feelings for Sybil, and Robert goes out of his way to bring Bates back. O’Brien sticks her nose into Mrs. Patmore and Daisy’s business.
