While we at Downton Abbey administration will have site events and occurrences, it will be entirely up to you to choose the fate of those you control. There is no predestined outcome - you get to choose what happens, as long as it is something that is believable and realistic within your character's control.
With that said,
The Crawley family is slowly overcoming the loss of Matthew, several months ago. Life, somehow, continues to progress and the characters continue to cope with an ever-changing world. Lady Rose MacClare is a guest in the house and nobility continues to be hosted at Downton, giving the family much to talk about. The servants carry on and adapt, as always.

TO CATCH A THIEF - DOWNSTAIRS PLOT
Things have been going missing at Downton and Sarah O'Brien has taken a lot of heat on account of it, was recently found to be in possession of Miss Caldwell's bracelet and has been sacked. Things seemed to have calmed down a bit since the scandal, but something is still not sitting right with some members of the house. September-December will be a pivotal time in this plot.
