Set in November 1918. A Canadian officer is brought to Downton for recuperation and disrupts everything. Ethel hears distressing news, Bates makes another attempt to settle matters with Vera, while Carson receives a tempting offer. Matthew gets used to life in a wheelchair with Mary as his round-the-clock carer, and Lady Sybil receives an ultimatum from Branson, regarding his love for her or staying at Downton Abbey. The war ends with Armistice not long after.
