Lady Edith Crawley (Laura Carmichael) first met up-and-coming editor Michael Gregson when she came to work for him at society magazine, The Sketch. The two quickly hit it off and began what ended up being yet another disappointing romance for the unfortunate middle Crawley daughter.
Turns out, Michael’s already married to a woman long ago committed to a mental asylum — a little obstacle he hoped to clear by becoming a German citizen. Soon after arriving on the Continent, however, Michael goes missing, leaving Edith in the lurch in a fairly life-changing way.
Michael was introduced in Season 3, Episode 7: "August 1920."
