[EXT. LONDON, BELGRAVE SQUARE/ INT. LADY ROSAMUND'S HOUSE - DAY]
[A car prepares to leave on a raining street. Mary sits alone staring out the window when a butler opens the door.]
BUTLER
Mr Napier, milady.
LADY MARY
What a surprise. I'm afraid you've just missed my aunt.
EVELYN NAPIER
I know. I watched her leave.
LADY MARY
How are your wedding plans going?
EVELYN NAPIER
Not very well. In fact, we've decided to call it off.
LADY MARY
Really? It seemed quite fixed at Sybil's ball. What a shame. Please.
[Mary offers him a seat.]

EVELYN NAPIER
It'll be better in the long run.
LADY MARY
Perhaps. I know what high hopes you have of the institution.
EVELYN NAPIER
The thing is, Lady Mary, I-- I'm here today because I needed to tell you something face to face before you went to the country.
LADY MARY
Face to face? Gracious me.
EVELYN NAPIER
I've recently heard gossip about the time when I came to Downton with Kemal Pamuk.
[Mary tenses.]
EVELYN NAPIER
Gossip that I believe has made life difficult for you. I've also heard it said that I am the source of these stories. It is very important to me that you should know that I am not.
[Mary relaxes in surprise.]

EVELYN NAPIER
From that day to this, I have never spoken one word on the matter.
LADY MARY
Then who did?
EVELYN NAPIER
It seems to have come from the Turkish Embassy, from the ambassador himself, in fact, and his wife.
LADY MARY
But who told them, if not you?
EVELYN NAPIER
This is the hard part. When I discovered the answer, I debated whether I should relay it, but in the end I feel you ought to know.
LADY MARY
The suspense is killing me.
EVELYN NAPIER
It was your sister, Lady Edith, who wrote to the ambassador. That is why people accept the story.
[Mary closes her eyes.]

LADY MARY
Edith?
EVELYN NAPIER
It is very hard to believe.
[Mary shakes her head.]
LADY MARY
Harder for you than for me.
[Napier is surprised by that comment.]

[INT. DOWNTON, SERVANTS' CORRIDOR - DAY]
MRS HUGHES
I love the thought of a baby in the house, but if it's a boy...
MR CARSON
It'll be very hard on Mr Crawley.
[Mrs Hughes looks at him in surprise.]
MR CARSON
I know, I was no great champion when he first arrived. But it seems to me he's tried his best, and he's done the decent thing.
MRS HUGHES
I can't see that coming off.
MR CARSON
You don't mean the engagement?
MRS HUGHES
But it's not an engagement yet, is it?
MR CARSON
She'd never throw him over.
MRS HUGHES
Mr Carson, Lady Mary Crawley does not deserve you.
[Mr Carson scoffs and Mrs Hughes smiles as she walks away.]

[INT. THE DOWER HOUSE - DAY]
VIOLET, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
And she's not been in touch with Cousin Matthew?
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Not that I've heard.
VIOLET, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Wonderful news, of course. You must look after yourself.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Don't worry, O'Brien has me wrapped in silk and feathers.
VIOLET, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
You're lucky. I have a horrible feeling Simmons is about to hand in her notice. She's looking very fidgety lately, and I saw her hurrying to meet the postman.
CORA, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Oh, you poor thing. Is there anything worse than losing one's maid?
VIOLET, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
I mean, why would she want to leave me? I've been as gentle as a lamb.
[Cora gives Violet a dubious look as a servant brings them tea.]
VIOLET, COUNTESS OF GRANTHAM
Most of the time.
