Also in the promo: Anna and Bates ditch their uniforms for fancy clothes but look tense despite a nice evening out. “I was a fool to think we could leave it behind,” Anna says before Cora (Elizabeth McGovern) interrupts. First question: Where exactly are Anna and Bates? Second question: Is Bates making good on his vow to find the man who attacked his wife? (Once again, we’ve got the answers, if you want them.)
We also get a glimpse of Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) chatting up old visitor the Abbey, Evelyn Napier (Brendan Patricks). Like his last visit, Evey’s brought along a guest, Charles Blake (Julian Ovenden). Believe it or not, he’ll actually make for one of Mary’s love interests of the season despite their chilly beginning.
