Lady Cora is tied to a railroad track by kidnappers. The General Strike occurs and railroad workers fail to show up for work. Lord Grantham sympathizes with the cause of the downtrodden workers, but agrees that illegal strikes are just not sporting, so he orders his staff to man the trains in his district and carry on for the good of the empire and for Downton. Downton means everything. Everything. Dame Maggie Smith finds a suitcase containing a million pounds. It will save Downton Abbey. But Cousin Isobel insists the money be turned in to the local police station lost and found. It is the right thing to do. Matthew is nearly killed when he cranes his neck too close to the King's horse at Ascot, but his lack of chin saves his life. Lady Mary suffers a bout of sciatica from thrusting her hips forward in an effort to disguise her lack of bosom. She loses her and Matthew's male fetus when she overdoses on laudanum. Her life is saved by Thomas. He had used his WWI medic's training to overdose her in the first place so that he could blame it on O'Brien's nephew, and then be a hero when he saves her using a fireplace bellowes and a high colonic. Daisy pouts about her lot in life and blames someone else for her blockheaded stupidity.
