Episode 63: Turn Down the Sound

Wednesday, September 21, 1966

My name is Victoria Winters. Once again, it is quiet in Collinwood. There is no sound but the ticking of the great clock in the entrance hall and the lonely footsteps of the woman who hasn’t left its grounds in eighteen years. A woman whose life is limited to musty corridors and the endless beat of a grandfather clock—a beat that seems to ignore the vitality of the world around it.

Carolyn and Joe arrive at the Blue Whale. 
She wants him to drink champagne out of her slipper, but he says the ones she’s wearing are too strappy. She wants him to turn down the jukebox. There’s a dead man banging in her head—Bill Malloy.

Joe does indeed get them to turn the volume down on the jukebox.

Carolyn can’t believe Bill just fell in the water. Although it’s ridiculous to think someone pushed him. They decide to dance.

Matthew brings some wood in to the drawing room where Liz sits deep in thought. 
He tells her that thinking about Bill won’t bring him back. She confirms with Matthew that there were no marks on Bill’s body when Matthew found him.

Matthew wishes Bill’s body had never been found. He wanted to keep people from pestering Liz.

Liz says the autopsy showed marks on Bill’s body, and Matthew says probably from the rocks.

Liz doesn’t believe this will ever be over.

Joe tells Carolyn that nobody had any reason to kill Bill.

Maggie comes in looking for her dad. If they see Burke, she says to tell him to pack up and leave. 
Carolyn asks what she has against Burke.

“The end of the world, that’s what.” Things were pretty good for her and her dad before he came back. And it’s Carolyn’s family he’s after, not hers.

Carolyn says Burke isn’t after anybody’s family.

“You live at Collinwood and you can still say that?”

Carolyn says she wishes she knew what Maggie was talking about.

Maggie says maybe nothing. If they see her dad, tell him she decided to pay a visit to his companion in crime.

Matthew wonders if Burke will continue to try to cause trouble for Liz. 
Liz is worried he will. But Matthew shouldn’t worry. They’ve survived and they’ll continue to survive.

Maggie arrives at Collinwood to talk to Roger. 
Liz starts to go up to check if he’s home, but then decides she wants to talk to Maggie. 
She asks if she’s Sam Evans’ daughter. 
Maggie says Burke has accused Sam of withholding evidence and letting Burke go to prison for a crime he didn’t commit.

Maggie tells Liz she doesn’t know how Liz feels about her brother, but that Maggie’s father is very important to her. Liz goes up to find Roger.

Matthew shows up at the Blue Whale as Carolyn and Joe are getting ready to leave. He’s looking for Burke Devlin. He gives her a message for Liz: Tell her everything will be all right.

Carolyn tells Joe Matthew’s waiting for Burke and it seems strange. She and Joe leave, but Carolyn makes Joe turn around and come back. Matthew tells Carolyn that Mr. Malloy is dead because of Burke.

Liz comes down to tell Maggie that Roger is not at home. Maggie says she’ll come back, but Liz thinks there’s no reason to. Trust in her father. Burke is a destructive man.

Carolyn arrives home and asks if Liz thinks Burke is capable of murder.

“Yes. Yes, I do.”
