1912年4月,格兰瑟姆伯爵的堂兄,亦是其假定继承人詹姆斯·克劳利与其子帕特里克·克劳利,均在泰坦尼克号沉船事件中罹难。由于没有男性后代,谁将成为继承人悬念迭起。格兰瑟姆伯爵雇佣贝茨为自己的贴身男仆。

概要

随着厨房女佣黛西打开宅子大门,一封电报抵达了庄园。时值1912年4月16日泰坦尼克号沉没,带走了格兰瑟姆伯爵的继承人詹姆斯·克劳利与其子帕特里克。那么究竟谁是新继承人?和伯爵头衔限定继承的不仅仅是爵位,还有唐顿庄园本身。老伯爵夫人维奥莱特认为现任伯爵罗伯特将会打破限定继承,让他的长女玛丽成为女继承人,但罗伯特并不确定。更糟的是,他的妻子科拉的财产也和庄园绑定了,如果把这笔钱分离出来将会损害唐顿的利益。即使罗伯特能打破限定继承,并把科拉的财产拿出来,他会想要这么做吗?

在楼下,新的贴身男仆贝茨来到庄园。贝茨是罗伯特在布尔战争期间的勤务兵,罗伯特对他的到来十分欢迎。然而,他和其它仆人看到贝茨的瘸腿时感到十分惊讶。这会妨碍贝茨履行自己的职责吗?Cora’s maid, O’Brien, and first footman, Thomas, who wanted Bates’s job, deliberately try to sabotage his first days at work.

Mary was supposed to marry the heir, the late Patrick Crawley, but his death has freed her to move on. She believes her own prospects have changed for the better, and now she angles to catch the young Duke of Crowborough. Her sister, Edith, was in love with Patrick and seethes with resentment towards Mary. The Duke arrives at Downton, ostensibly to present his condolences, but after dinner he requests an interview with Robert, presumably to ask for Mary’s hand.

But when he learns that Robert is not intending to challenge the entail he withdraws his offer, without ever in fact making it. It was Thomas who brought the Duke to Downton, luring him with the prospect of the Grantham money. He and Thomas shared a summer dalliance and Thomas intends to use this to further his own career, blackmailing the Duke with his own letters if he has to. However, the Duke is one step ahead of Thomas who can only watch as the incriminating pages go up in flames.

Meanwhile, Robert informs Bates that his disability is interfering with his work and he will have to go. Bates seems to take the news well, but the Head Housemaid, Anna, hears him crying in his room. However, as Crowborough leaves Robert finds himself unable to let Bates down in this way, and to the amazement of Cora and the servants he asks the valet to stay.

Mary’s fury is matched by Cora’s surprise when they realise Robert has made up his mind and will not challenge the entail. He has discovered the identity of his new heir, a distant cousin, and intends to write to the young man and invite him to Downton.
