Episode 110: Miles Away

Tuesday, November 29, 1966

Note: The episodes’ official numbering includes skipped numbers for pre-emptions, in accordance with their numbering system (so that one could look at the number of an episode and know what day of the week it aired on). I have elected to number the episodes by what episode it actually is (this is the 110th episode, but the official number is 112), but I will note the official numbering also. 

My name is Victoria Winters. I have just lived through the most terrifying hour of my life. I have learnt the identity of a murderer, and he has attempted to kill me. I would not be alive now if someone hadn’t interrupted him in the act of trying to murder me.

Vicki tells Liz that Matthew was trying to kill her and that he killed Bill Malloy.
Matthew tells Vicki to be quiet.
Liz tells Matthew to let Vicki go and he does.
Matthew admits he killed Bill, but it was an accident, and he did it for Liz. 
Liz says Bill was her friend. 
Matthew says he wasn’t acting like a friend.

She tells Matthew she won’t let Vicki tell anyone. 
She tells Vicki to go back to the house, but Matthew doesn’t want to let her go. 

He’s like a crazed lion, roaring.
He begins to distrust Liz.
He runs at her, but then, horrified with himself, pulls back, and leaves the cottage.

The sheriff and Frank are talking about the search when Liz and Vicki return. 
The sheriff calls it in.
Liz gets a brandy for herself and Vicki.
The sheriff returns from calling it in and questions Vicki about what happens.
She and Liz tell what happened.

Liz and George go to the cottage.
Frank stays with Vicki. 
She says she won’t feel safe until Matthew is caught.
Frank says he’ll take Vicki out for a steak.
Roger arrives home. He’s heard about Matthew already.
Vicki apologizes for suspecting him. 
He doesn’t accept. 
Frank says he thinks Roger is being unfair. Roger disagrees.

The sheriff goes through Matthew’s mail. 
He tells Liz that Matthew has a brother in Coldwater.
Roger comes in and complains about his ill treatment.
The sheriff leaves.
Roger says at least Matthew was loyal—unlike Vicki. He demands Liz discharge her. Liz refuses. Vicki had good reason for thinking what she did. It’s Roger’s fault for hiding evidence and burying the pen.
Roger says he was thinking of Liz.
Liz is skeptical.
They discuss Burke. Liz says they must destroy him or they will be destroyed.

Frank brings Vicki home. 
He suggests her going away to Bangor for the weekend. She says she’ll see if she can arrange it.
Liz comes out and grants permission.

Liz tells Vicki that Matthew was spotted driving toward Coldwater.

After Frank leaves, Vicki apologizes for causing trouble for Roger. 
Liz says she has nothing to apologize for and to pay no attention to Roger; Liz isn’t going to.
She assures Vicki that Matthew is miles away from Collinsport by now.

Outside the old house, we see flashlight.
Matthew goes up the steps.
