The final season of "Downton Abbey" has already begun and for those who watch the show as religiously as us, you would know that episode 4 teased Lady Mary's (Michelle Dockery) love life.

She finally meets Henry Talbot (Matthew Goode), the city slick car racer at Downton. Later in the episode, she meets him for a drink in London. While this is a source of happiness for the show's fans, episode 4 also confirmed that Anna (Joanne Froggatt) is indeed pregnant and she might finally have a baby with Mr Bates (Brendan Coyle).

However, in the latest episode, Lady Mary will perhaps step aside and let the light shine on her younger sister, Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael). In the teaser for episode 5, Lady Edith is seen back in London, perhaps taking care of her magazine. She also meets estate agent Bertie Pelham and the two decide to go on a date.

In the teaser, Bertie appears to be respectful, polite and attentive to Lady Edith's thoughts on where to spend their evening. He reminds her that it is her date as well, and adds that he would love to listen to what she has in mind.

Furthermore, episode 5 will also explore Tom Branson's (Allen Leech) fascination with cars and we won't be surprised if he enters the world of motorsport racing. In the teaser, Branson talks about racing in the background while Talbot appears to be driving a car in a tournament.

Perhaps Branson is sharing his knowledge about cars with Lady Mary who is at the tournament to support her new love interest, Henry Talbot?

"Downton Abbey" season 6 episode 5 airs on Sunday, 19 October at 9pm on ITV.
