Episode 123: Enemies Everywhere

Friday, December 15, 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, but I will note the official numbering also. This is the 122nd episode, but the official number is 124.

My name is Victoria Winters. Night has fallen at Collinwood, and in a few short hours my fate will be decided. In the deserted old house where I am held captive, my captor must decide to free me or kill me—unless a small boy who knows the secret of my whereabouts tells what he knows.

David tells Roger he needs to talk to him. He wants Roger to promise he won’t get in any trouble first. Roger refuses, so David decides not to tell him. He hopes Roger gets pneumonia (securing all the windows against the storm) and dies.
After Roger goes, David frets he wishes he knew what to do.
Matthew decides he’s leaving and taking Vicki with him. He hears a noise. 
Vicki says it’s the shutter banging in the wind. He says he can hear footsteps. 
Vicki thinks he’s imagining things. He listens and then goes out to check.
He comes back and tells Vicki his enemies are everywhere. She’s one of them.
“I’m not your enemy,” Vicki tells him. She’s going to cooperate with him and help him. He needs help, doesn’t he?

He admits he does.
He gags her again while he takes the food out to the car.
Vicki begins to work on the knots again.

The ghost of Bill Malloy appears to tell David to help Miss Winters. 
He disappears when Roger comes back.
Roger takes David upstairs to bed.

The ghost of Bill Malloy appears to Matthew and tells him someone will die at Collinwood tonight.

David sneaks downstairs to use the phone. He leaves a message at the Collinsport Inn for Burke, that he should come to Collinwood right away; it’s urgent; it’s about Miss Winters.
Vicki finally gets her wrists unbound.
When she reaches the door to leave, Matthew comes in. He apologizes for startling her, mistaking her for Liz.
She plays along. She says she’ll go to her room.
He stops her when he realizes this is the old house.
She says they were looking for David. Matthew is probably tired. He should lie down.
He says he just had a terrible dream. He saw the ghost of Bill Malloy in the woods. But what was he doing in the woods? But it wasn’t a dream. He was running from the police.
She’s not Mrs. Stoddard—she’s Miss Winters.
He grabs her.
Burke comes banging on the door of Collinwood, demanding that Roger get David.

Matthew ties Vicki back up. 
He says he has to kill her. She’ll always be trying to escape. 
And the ghosts want her dead. 
She’s the third girl.
 They’re waiting for her.
 He’ll find a way to do it quick and easy, so she won’t feel anything. 
He’ll be back soon. Then she’ll know.
