Episode 72: Whose Side Are You On?

Tuesday, October 4, 1966

My name is Victoria Winters. Collinwood is a cauldron of tension. Desperately as I have tried, I am unable to avoid involvement in the mystery of a man’s death, a mystery that reveals hidden emotions and brings unexpected hatreds to the surface.

Carolyn visits Vicki in her room. 
She doesn’t want to hear about Vicki’s taking up the hem of her dress or her stories about the foundling home. 
She wishes Vicki would go back there. Of course, she’s heard that Vicki spent time with Burke Devlin. 
Oh, but she isn’t jealous this time. She’s mad because Burke is the enemy.

“Why are you angry, Carolyn? Because I brought him to the house, or because he drove me home?”

Carolyn asks if she’s going to get the big speech about how she should stay away from him—and leave the field clear for Vicki.

“No, not that speech. Just one question. A question you asked me just a little while ago. Whose side are you on?”

Carolyn storms out.

Mrs. Johnson calls Burke to ask if he’s heard anything about the coroner’s report. She tells him she hasn’t had any job offers from Collinwood.

She orders a sandwich from Maggie, but she doesn’t think the mayonnaise smells fresh. She apologizes for making Maggie fix it again, but she has no desire to get sick, especially not when evil walks the streets of this town.

Liz wants to know why Vicki hasn’t taught David all day. Carolyn tells her she was off with Burke Devlin and doesn’t even look sorry when Liz talks about firing her.

Then Carolyn tries calling Burke.
Vicki tells Liz that Roger took her off for the day, and he said he was going to tell her. Burke only gave her a ride home. 
Liz tells her that in the future, she should check with Liz, not Roger, and to please not bring Burke back to this house again.

Mrs. Johnson and Maggie talk about Bill. Mrs. Johnson talks about an eye for an eye. Maggie worries whose eye she wants.

Carolyn comes in, and the altruistic version of her joins Mrs. Johnson and says she’d like to do something for her.

Maggie thinks Mrs. Johnson is creepy.

Vicki hears Liz on the phone with Roger. She tells Liz it’s too bad she found it necessary to check on her story. She says that she isn’t going to be badgered and bullied anymore. Liz apologizes.

Mrs. Johnson reports her job offer to Burke.
