After rising to the position of Matthew Crawley’s valet, Molesley finally began to envision an illustrious career for himself in the family’s service. Those plans were dashed, however, with Matthew’s sudden death, and the wake of the loss has dire implications for the now superfluous servant. Although he can at times be defeatist, Molesley will have to call up whatever confidence he may have to once again find his way in the world. Will he be able to stay afloat now that his position at Downton has all but vanished?
MOLESLEY: “Sometimes it’s better to take a risk than to go down the wrong path.“
