[BRIGHTCOVE "4080634843001" "" "" "auto"] Before Downton Abbey finishes its fifth season, many questions must be answered: Will Anna (Golden Globe winner Joanne Froggatt) remain in jail for the murder of her rapist? Will Mary (Michelle Dockery) officially settle on a suitor? And will Violet (Maggie Smith) please deliver a zing – or six – to lighten the mood?
In the midst of all those questions, an exclusive clip sees Lord Grantham (Hugh Bonneville), accompanied by Branson (Allen Leech) and Thomas (Rob James-Collier), heading for a sporting week with the judgmental Lord Sinderby (James Faulkner), aka Lady Rose's new father-in-law.
