Episode 15: The Dark Threads of the Past

Friday, July 15, 1966
My name is Victoria Winters. The dark threads of the past are tying me to the great house on top of Widow’s Hill. My search seems as endless as the corridors of Collinwood. Yet I have accomplished something, I think. I’ve made friends with one small and terribly troubled boy.

Roger wants to know why David is sitting in the dark in the drawing room. Then he wants to know whether David has seen his car keys.
David tells Roger he isn’t going to let Roger send him away. (He’d have better luck with that if he tried to be nicer to everybody.)

Vicki tells Roger she thinks David is beginning to trust her. She tells him his keys are in the car. She wants Roger to buy those magazines but he says he doesn't have time. After he leaves, she tells Liz Burke was looking at Roger’s car. Neither of them tells Roger this.

Roger tells Liz that Burke might be sincere but he’ll keep the other possibilities in mind. Liz thinks Burke is not sincere.

David tells Vicki his father wants to send him away. Vicki says there’s not reason for him to be sent away—she’s here to take care of him. David hopes his father dies. Vicki says David thinks everyone hates him. He agrees. Everyone but Aunt Elizabeth, maybe. And he’s not a nice boy, he says.

Vicki tells him story about a girl in the foundling home who was lonely, but every time someone tried to be friends with her, she chased them away. And soon nobody did like her. But the truth was she didn’t like herself.
David doesn't see what this has to do with him.
Vicki tells him he should give his father a chance.

Liz is unable to convince Roger not to go to town.
David makes a halfhearted attempt to dissuade Roger from taking his car. Liz wants to know why David seems so intense tonight. (Tonight?) Vicki says David is convinced his father wants to send him away. Liz admits Roger isn’t fond of David.

Roger’s brakes fail and he’s in an accident. Liz is very upset when she receives the call. “I knew he shouldn’t have gone there! He could have been killed! He could have been killed!”
