Downton Abbey is top of the menu on PBS Masterpiece tonight after a fiery incident in the season premiere of the BBC import. Watch Downton Abbey Season 5 online free streaming for Episode 3 tonight on PBS Masterpiece live as the aftermath of the premiere’s destructive events continues to play out.
Lady Edith is still trying to spend as much time as humanly possible with her daughter, under the care of Mr. and Mrs. Drewe at their farmhouse. You get the feeling that Lady Edith is going to try something drastic to get Marigold back under her guardianship and that the Drewes, already highly suspicious of Lady Edith, aren’t about to let that happen.
Though Lady Mary and Lord Gillingham are still doing their relationship dance, another potential Mary suitor, Charles Blake, paid Downton Abbey a visit. While it first looked like Blake might be making eyes at Lady Mary, he let her know of his intentions to seek her happiness with Lord Gillingham, as long as she’s sure about everything that goes with it.
Lady Mary and Lord Gillingham make their escape for a week of frolicking and finally lock lips. However, back in town, a police officer wants to talk to Carson about the death of Mr. Green. Or more specifically, about a witness that saw the supposed “accident” occur.
The official synopsis for Downton Abbey Season 5 Episode 3 reads, “Things go badly amiss at Downton Abbey. Robert and Cora are not speaking. The servants are shunning Matthew’s mother Isobel. And Matthew and Robert have fallen out. Also, Bates takes a gamble.”
