Episode 102: Uncertain

Tuesday, November 15, 1966

 My name is Victoria Winters. The one person at Collinwood I have reason to fear is Roger Collins. He has discovered that I know his guilty secret, and now Roger has discovered me—alone in the house.

Roger tells Vicki if she promises not to scream, he’ll take his hand away. She agrees. He notes that there’s no one to hear her anyway. (Then he didn’t need to put his hand over her mouth, did he?) He says he didn’t want her to call for her “little friend” to come back.

He says she must be afraid if she thinks he killed Bill Malloy—because then he could kill her too.
He says if he meant her any harm, he could have done it already.
Confession is good for the soul.
He wants her to hear his whole story.
What she does after that is up to her.

She agrees to listen.

Roger says he made an appointment to see Bill before the meeting.
He just wanted to talk to him and convince him that he was wrong.
Later, he convinced Vicki that he left the house later than he did. He was trying to protect Liz.

When he went to meet Bill, he lost the pen that Vicki later found.

David goes to the old house and, addressing the portrait of Josette as “Great-great-grandmother,” asks her to help him by asking Bill Malloy something.

Carolyn and Burke are having dinner at the Blue Whale. (You’d think there would be one nice restaurant in town or a neighboring town.) She does not give him Vicki’s message. (Shocker.)

David wishes Josette would come down the way she usually does. 
But can she find out what Vicki knows that made her realize Roger killed Mr. Malloy?

Someone comes up the steps to the house. (Okay, so we all know this is going to be Matthew.)

It’s Matthew, wanting to know why David is there.

He says he came to see his friends: “Josette Collins, the lady in white. And another girl. And there’s a younger girl like Miss Winters.” (That’s three.)
He tells Matthew he’s trying to find a way to protect Miss Winters from his father. He asks for Matthew’s help. Matthew agrees.
They leave.
A ghost walks down out of the painting.  

Carolyn tells Burke he thinks Roger is interested in Vicki. He went driving off after her this afternoon—couldn’t even wait for her to come home. She tells him she mentioned the pen.

“You mentioned to Roger that Vicki knew he lost the pen?”

“Yes. Why not?”

No reason. Burke remembers a phone call he has to make.
Roger says he saw Bill Malloy that night, but Bill didn’t see him. 

He found Bill’s body. 
He didn’t say anything because he had motive and opportunity.
 She isn’t sure whether she believes him.

The phone rings. Burke tells Vicki to pretend it’s Maggie. 
He tells her to sneak out of the house. 
She says she thinks they might be making a mistake. 
Burke tells her to let him do the thinking.

Vicki tells Roger she wants to sleep on it, and he says that’s a good idea. They say good night.

Burke tells Carolyn he has a business meeting in ten minutes. 
She asks him to walk her to his car.

Vicki sneaks out the house through the back way while Roger drinks in the drawing room.
