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 114th episode, but the official number is 116), but I will note the official numbering also.
He says it’s too bad she found out (although she wouldn’t have found out if he hadn’t picked up her wallet and stayed hidden, so whatever, Matthew, you want to do this).
A cab driver arrives for Vicki, but Mrs. Johnson says tries calling for her and says she must have gotten a ride.
Matthew says he’s going to go to sea for the rest of his life after a while.
Mrs. Johnson tells Liz that Carolyn must have a date because she had Mrs. Johnson press a dress. Liz assumes it’s with Joe.
Mrs. Johnson tells her about the taxi.
Liz thinks it’s odd Vicki didn’t cancel it. She looks for Vicki’s suitcase in the hall, but doesn’t see it (it’s in the closet), so she thinks she must have gotten off all right.
Mrs. Johnson gives her the newspaper, full of news about Matthew. (I’m surprised there’s a recent picture of Matthew.)
Liz and Mrs. Johnson assume she’s waiting for the next one, although Liz says it’s natural to worry about Vicki after so much has happened to her this last week.
Matthew tells Vicki to get up and she does.
She and Liz told the sheriff so.
She says his friend is lying to him.
She tries to convince him he can get into his car and leave.
He says he’s trying to decide whether to believe her.
Liz hears from Frank that Vicki wasn’t on the next bus either. Mrs. Johnson says that if Carolyn was on a date, Joe would have picked her up. She goes to see if Carolyn’s car is in the garage. If it isn’t, she thinks that will mean she gave Vicki a ride. (She would be there much faster by car, though.)
Matthew decides he’ll go outside and see if there are any police around.
If not, he’ll leave. Vicki’ll figure out some way to get out of that room or somebody will find her, no problem.
Vicki pushes the bookcase door open.
Matthew grabs her and drags her back inside, giving her a shove that makes her stumble as he pushes her in the door.
He says he knew he couldn’t trust her. He knew she was lying to him. He runs at Vicki and she screams.
