Downton Abbey season 4 is wrapping up on Sunday with the season 4 finale on PBS.
The 90 minute episode (running two hours with commercials) will start at 9 p.m. ET.
The official synopsis is: “Six months after the bazaar, the Crawleys head to London for Rose’s presentation before the king. Mary’s suitors await them, the Levinsons join them, and a potentially explosive scandal threatens to embroil them.”
Another listing says: “It’s the summer season and as part of Rose’s ‘coming out’ she is to be presented at Buckingham Palace. The family and servants are at Grantham House, their London residence, preparing for the busy social program. Not one to miss such a grand occasion, Cora’s mother, Martha Levinson makes the journey from New York with her playboy son Harold, fresh from his recent brush with the law. Both outspoken and larger-than-life, they make quite an impression amongst certain members of London’s high society, in particular with Lord Aysgarth, played by James Fox.”
“Isobel finds herself with an admirer while Edith is wrestling with a moral dilemma,” it continues. “Downstairs, Daisy gets an unexpected invitation and Carson treats the staff to a special day out. When the Crawleys are implicated in a scandal that threatens to engulf the monarchy, Robert will go to great lengths to protect the royal family, and his own.”
A clip from the episode (see middle embedded video) shows Harold and Ms. Levinson arriving at the Grantham House where the town’s residents are staying for Rose’s presentation to the King and Queen.
