Episode 94: Lessons in Love and Lies

Thursday, November 3, 1966

My name is Victoria Winters. I have left the terrifying shadows of Collinwood to continue a search that has occupied most of my life, a search to discover the secret of my identity. I had just met a friendly and understanding stranger, who might help me end that search. Back in Collinsport, Carolyn Stoddard is searching too, for love, and understanding, and peace of mind.

Joe thinks Carolyn is laughing too hard at his jokes and just pretending she’s having a good time.

Carolyn claims she’s just upset because Vicki says she’s seen the ghost of Bill Malloy.

Joe thinks Vicki was probably dreaming. Carolyn wants to talk about them.

Joe says he wants to talk about the two of them. What’s going on? She says she didn’t approve of his going out with another girl. (Goose, meet gander.) He says there’s nothing between him and Maggie. She says maybe she knows that and that’s why she apologized. Can’t he accept her apology?

As long as she doesn’t change her mind about him as often as she changes her dress.

Maggie and Sam come in and Carolyn makes a big deal out of asking them to join her and Joe.

Vicki tells Frank about when she was nine years old and a nurse came to work at the foundling home. 
Vicki got very attached to her (“I loved her”) and began to pretend she was her mother. 
And then the nurse got another job and moved away.

She knows that she may never find the answers. 
It may always be a mystery to her.

Frank says he’ll do everything he can to help.

Carolyn is telling Maggie how becoming blue is on her when Joe asks Carolyn to dance.

He wants to know why she asked Maggie and Sam to join them.

She was being polite. She wants Maggie to know there are no hard feelings about her date with Joe.

At the table, Sam says, “Penny for your thoughts.”

“Don’t squander your money.”

He asks if it bothers her, seeing them together. She says it doesn’t. He tells her sometimes they have to bow to the inevitable. She asks him to spare her his words of wisdom just this once. She’s fine.

Mr. Garner arrives at the restaurant. Frank asks him to join them. 
He seems less than pleased when Frank says he’s going to find Betty Hanscomb. He tells Vicki that Frank likes challenges and lost causes. Frank says it’s not a lost cause.

Mr. Garner says he just doesn’t want Vicki to get her hopes up and be disappointed.

Carolyn reminisces about all the fun she and Joe used to have. They’ll have to go up to Eagle’s Point again soon.

Maggie says she should be going. She has to open the coffee shop at 6:30. Sam says he’ll walk her home. Maggie says she’s a big girl, but Sam insists—after another drink.

Maggie asks about Vicki and Carolyn blabs about the trip to Bangor and the ghost again. This worries Sam.

Maggie wonders if Vicki will be lonesome in Bangor. Carolyn says she went there with Burke Devlin—which she hadn’t told Joe. Joe wants to dance again.

“You must take me for a prize sap,” he tells her. He says he knows she called him because she’s jealous of Vicki and Burke. Carolyn demands he take her home or she’ll walk.

Frank talks to his father before he leaves. Mr. Garner says to keep in mind that Elizabeth Stoddard is their client, not Vicki Winters.

Sam is still having one last drink. Joe comes back in, and Sam asks if he’ll walk Maggie home. He then leaves.

Maggie asks Joe to tell her more about his boat. He says it’s nice of her not to ask what happened between him and Carolyn. She says he would tell her if he wanted her to know. But why did he come back? 
For a brushup on his knowledge of seacraft. He asks her to name the sails.
