We're back in the prison yard again, but Bates breaks the ranks of the shuffling downtrodden to suddenly yank Craig into an archway. He pulls out a rather sharp-looking piece of bent metal and holds it to Craig's cheek as he breathes that if he doesn't get Mrs. Bartlett to change her story back to the truth, he'll go to the governor with some trumped-up charge about Craig and the guard trafficking drugs and trying to get Bates to sell for them. Even with the governor's supposed favorable attitude toward Bates, this sounds like horseshit to me, but if it wraps up this prison storyline I'm happy to inhale and tell you it smells like roses.
Carson tells Mrs. Hughes about the fiasco that befell Lord Grantham and Mrs. Hughes is shocked that even the Dowager Countess stayed behind. "Perhaps the world is becoming a kinder place." Carson mutters that it's less disciplined, not kinder, but Mrs. Hughes brushes that aside by supposing that if the Dowager Countess can visit Crawley House, it's okay for her to do the same. Carson realizes he has no authority to say otherwise, but tells Mrs. Hughes she disappoints him. "I never thought of you as a woman with no standards." Ah yes, attempting to subjugate women with vague denigration of their reputations. Carson, I'm sure you don't care, but you disappoint me. Mrs. Hughes, however, doesn't even dignify his comment with an answer.
