Episode 41: The Devils in My Brain

Monday, August 22, 1966


My name is Victoria Winters. This great house called Collinwood is the only home I’ve ever known. And yet I’ve known it such a short time, a short time that terror has made ageless—and friend has turned against friend.

Roger calls Sam and wants to know if he’s alone. Same says he’s alone except for the devils in his brain. He and Bill had a few friendly drinks. Nothing wrong with that, is there?

Roger says he probably got drunk and blabbed everything he knows. Sam can’t remember. Finally, Sam hangs up. He doesn’t answer the phone when it begins to ring again. He tears up his sketch of Burke.

Liz wants to know why Roger is home instead of at the office. He says he was preventing her daughter from meeting Burke Devlin.

They discuss how Roger blew all of his inheritance, but at least he had fun with it. 
Liz says she didn’t have fun with hers, but at least she was able to buy up all of Roger’s shares in the company.

Liz mentions that Ned Calder might come back to work for her.

Maggie comes home from work to get her shopping list. She says she called, but there was no answer.

She sees the sketch of Burke that Sam drew and tore up.

Sam says he wishes she’d let him run away when he had the chance.

“Don’t worry, Pop. We’ll lick ’em yet.”

She says Burke’s coming back made everyone different.

Sam says he wishes Burke had never come back.

When she questions him, he becomes angry and storms out.

Maggie calls Collinwood looking for Roger. 
When Vicki gives him the phone, he hangs up on her.

Liz asks Roger to look around for Carolyn while he’s in town.

“And neglect my vital tasks at the office? Oh, dear me, no.” Exit Roger.

Vicki and Liz discuss Carolyn and Burke. Vicki says that if Carolyn wanted to meet him, she doesn’t think anyone could stop her.

Joe Haskell calls to apologize. He hasn’t heard from or seen Carolyn today. 
Liz asks him to stop in; she’d like to talk to him.

Maggie tells Sam she tried to call Roger Collins. 
He is not happy. He starts shouting at her about her “infernal prying.” She may have signed his death warrant. She should go back to her job at her fancy restaurant and leave him in peace.

Before she leaves, she reminds Sam that he’s all she has.

Roger comes along and starts banging on Sam’s door, yelling for him to open up. Sam opens the door. Roger asks if Sam’s phone is in working order, as they were disconnected earlier. (Maggie could ask Roger the same question.)

Sam starts with the drinking. Roger tries to stop him.

Roger wants to know what he told Bill and why Maggie called him.

Sam says he almost raised his hand to Maggie, which Roger thinks would have been an excellent idea. Sam says he never thought he could hate a man as much as he does Roger. Roger says the feeling is mutual.

“What a pity that neither of us can do anything about it.” Roger says he has no intention of letting Sam’s weakness carry him down.

“You just said there was nothing we could do about it.”

Roger says maybe he’ll think of something and leaves.

Sam says maybe he will too.

Liz is still trying to get in touch with Ned Calder.

Vicki is going to walk to Collinsport. The exercise will do her good.

Someone is banging on the door. When Liz goes to answer, it’s Sam.
