Episode 95: Armchair Detectives

Friday, November 4, 1966

My name is Victoria Winters. For a few short days, I have left the nameless terrors of Collinwood behind me. Now I am about to return to them—without accomplishing the purpose of my mission, without discovering the secret of my identity.

Frank assures Vicki he’ll find out about B. Hanscomb if he has to go through miles of records. Vicki tells him she won’t regret coming to Bangor even if the search is in vain. He would like to take that as a compliment, but she says she needed to get away from Collinwood.

She tells him about seeing the ghost, and about David locking her up.

And she knows she wasn’t dreaming. 
It’s easy to be logical when you’re far away from there, but it’s different there.

Frank suggests she could find another job.

She feels that she belongs at Collinwood, that she might find her answers there.

Frank feels lucky to have met her: “a beautiful girl searching for her identity, a mysterious old house, complete with ghosts in the attic. What armchair detective could ask for anything more?”

Vicki wonders if he’s making fun of her. He says he isn’t.

Burke comes in and tells Vicki when they’re leaving, then goes off to his table with Blair.

Frank says he was hoping to give Vicki a ride home. He questions whether Vicki and Burke are an item and whether she has a boyfriend (no on both counts). 
He tells her he’d like to see her again, and she says yes.

Burke tells Blair he wants more action on the Logansport cannery. They are dragging their feet on accepting Burke’s bid. 
He tells Blair to raise his bid ten percent. Blair says the cannery isn’t worth that much. Burke says it is to him if it means putting the Collins family out of business.

Vicki arrives and Burke leaves for a minute. Blair is surprised that Vicki works at Collinwood.

Vicki notices that his pen is a duplicate to the one she found on the beach.

Blair tells her there are only six of these and four are in South America. Maybe she found Burke’s pen. Vicki asks to look at the pen and tells Blair that it’s nothing like the one she found after all.

Burke comes in and borrows Blair’s pen to sign a paper, as his is missing.

Blair leaves and Vicki says she has to make a phone call. First she tries Frank, but he doesn’t answer. Then she calls Collinwood.
 Roger answers and she asks him to come to get her. 
She’s afraid to go with Burke. She tells Roger about the pen.
He tells her to make an excuse to Burke, and he’ll come. (Has she been there more than one day? Wasn’t she going to stay for a while?)

Vicki tells Burke that she’s decided to stay another night in Bangor.

Roger leaves to pick Vicki up.
