Downstairs, Daisy remarks to Anna that she never thought she'd feel sorry for an Earl's daughter before haltingly asking Anna if she's of the opinion that women should say what they think, especially in the area of romance. Anna considers the question before noting that things are changing for women -- the vote is coming, for example -- but "with most of the men I've ever met, if you started to court them, they'd be so terrified they'd run a mile." Heh. Just then, Alfred, the obvious object of Daisy's affection, pops in for a moment and Daisy lights up in a way it'd be hard for Anna to miss. And I actually don't mind a Daisy-Alfred pairing philosophically really, but how are they going to overcome the four-foot height differential?
Upstairs, the family is having dinner in the mood you'd expect; Isobel asks if Edith has had anything to eat, but Mary tells her that she wouldn't touch the sandwiches Anna brought up for her. Lady Cora remembers to tell Carson that she doesn't want Edith to see any of the wedding food and Carson assures her that "what's left" is being taken to the church to be given to the poor. Hilariously, the Dowager Countess tells him to bring it her way if the poor don't want it and then Matthew wonders how they can help Edith. Isobel suggests that finding her something to do would be a start and despite that being what you'd expect from Isobel, she's got a point -- Edith never had more of a purpose in life than when she was helping in the convalescent home that was Downton in Season 2.
