Check out this sneak peek at the latest “Downton Abbey” episode, airing Sunday, Oct. 20 in the U.K. Spoiler warning — don’t watch or keep reading if you don’t want to be spoiled.

In the clip, Tom and Mary actually spend some time with their children, which is kind of a rare sight this season. They mention “nanny,” so we wonder who they got to replace that horrid woman who called Sybbie nasty names.

But the interesting part of the scene is that Tom says the Crawleys are “doing their best,” not that they’re “doing well.” We’ve read that he’s considering a new future for himself and the baby, so we have to wonder if he’s leaving Downton.

“Downton Abbey” returns to the U.S. on Jan. 5, 2014.
