7. Thomas kisses Jimmy. Season 3, Episode 7 After some spectacular signal misreading (malevolently abetted by the villainous Miss O'Brien), Thomas crept into Jimmy the footman's room to steal a kiss as he slept. Jimmy and the rest of the household were roundly disgusted, with Mr Carson calling Thomas 'foul' and threatening to kick him out of Downton for good. But when Thomas later turns out to be quite good at cricket, all is forgiven and forgotten.
