Okay, here is a quick summary of Season 1...So far, after a night of indiscretion, Mary wakes up to a HUGE scandal that shakes her to the core. The thoroughly "modern" Matthew is the estate's newest heir (and he has eyes for Mary, which is a good thing) and Anna is developing a thing for Bates (C'mon, how can you not like Bates?) Meanwhile, Cora continues to hold her own against Robert's highly opinionated mum, Violet, the Dowager Countess of Grantham and Edith (the middle child) will stop at nothing to take advantage of Mary's arrogance toward her.
Now, in Season 2, the Downton estate is thrust into war - and not just in the obvious way. The characters undergo some inner battles of their own.

War Deals Out Strange Tasks...
At the war front, life intensifies for Downton's young men in the face of untold horrors. Meanwhile, at Downton, war makes new and often unjust demands. Some rise to its call for a stiff upper lip and a useful turn, and others see change as an opportunity for either growth or exploitation. Far from the trenches, there remains no shortage of scheming, meddling, and dangerous attractions.
As other great houses crumble, a diminished Downton Abbey struggles to prevail into a new era with its residents and its honor intact.
