Masterpiece Classic | Downton Abbey Season 3
September 1921. The Crawley family heads north, to Duneagle Castle in Scotland - the ancestral home of The MacClare family - to visit Lady Rose and her warring parents, Susan and Hugh ("Shrimpy"). Bates, Anna, Molesley, and O'Brien also make the trip. Edith is surprised to learn that Gregson, the man who hired her on at the newspaper, is in Scotland, while Mary and Matthew disagree about Gregson's motives. Branson remains at Downton with baby Sybil. The staff looks forward to the approaching country fair, and Carson struggles to keep them concentrating on work. A new housemaid, Edna, joins the staff and is quickly fired after Mrs Hughes discovers her getting too close to Branson. Mrs Patmore becomes involved in a romance, but it does not last as she realises he is only interested in her cooking. At the country fair the Downton staff win the tug of war. Jimmy is nearly robbed after winning money from betting, but is saved by Thomas. They later agree just to be friends. Lady Mary goes into labour early, rushing home to deliver her baby - a son. Matthew soon joins her to meet his heir. But on the way back to Downton, he is killed in an auto accident.
