Lady Rose's relationship with jazz band singer Jack Ross will be taken to the next level when they enjoy a romantic boat ride together.
New pictures from the episode reveal the pair sharing another intimate smooch during their riverboat date. The pair were seen kissing for the first time during the final moments of last week's episode, before they were caught by Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery).
Another new romance coming to the period drama features new arrival Daisy Lewis, who will be playing Sarah Bunting.
Sarah Bunting will catch the eye of Tom Branson, who had been threatening to leave Downton, complaining that he felt out of place in the household following the death of his wife Lady Sybil.
Aside from the romantic developments, the drama in this week's episode will centre on Robert's (Hugh Bonneville) last minute trip to the US to bail out Cora's (Elizabeth McGovern) playboy brother Harold and the continuing tension between Blake and Lady Mary.
Meanwhile, a sudden bout of illness for the Dowager Countess has prompted speculation from fans that Dame Maggie Smith may be written out of the series.
Downton Abbey continues on Sunday (November 3) at 9pm on ITV.
