First look: Downton Abbey episode two clip - Mr Molesley's money woes worsen
The butler confesses to Anna he 'owes money all over the village'
Mr Molesley’s bad luck seems set to continue in episode two of Downton Abbey's fourth series.
He tells Anna that since losing his job in the wake of Matthew Crawley's death, he is penniless and in debt.
"I have waited and nothing's turned up. I haven't earned a penny since Mr Crawley died, now I owe money all over the village. Don’t you understand I'm at my wits' end?" he says.
The mild-mannered butler, who begged Isobel Crawley for more work in the series premiere on Sunday, later apologises to Anna.
He says: "I should not have said that. It was vulgar, and self-important. Please forgive me."
The housemaid offers to lend him some money with the help of Mr Bates, but Mr Molesley turns her offer down.
"I couldn't accept that, but I thank you, I do, most sincerely," he says
