Burke lies to protect David, but out of the room, he warns Victoria to beware of David.

Synopsis Edit

My name is Victoria Winters. Moment by moment, Collinwood has seen a tight coil of tension drawn closer to the breaking point. And now nothing remains but the explosion itself, an explosion centered on a small piece of metal resting in the palm of a man's hand.

Burke claims to have found the bleeder valve on the road and protects David. Burke later tells David that he knows the truth. David finally confesses and admits that he didn't know what else to do with the evidence. Burke smiles and admires the boy's cunning, but tells him he was very wrong to try and kill his father. Burke and David appear to become friends.

Carolyn calls and tells Roger that Burke and David were seen at the hotel together well before the time Burke provided. Roger had never completely believed Burke's story and is now positive that the whole thing was a farce. Victoria has to agree.

Burke asks David to show a him a picture of his mother. He does and Burke admires how pretty she is. David laments his mother's hospitalization. Burke finally tells the truth to Roger about David's guilt. Roger scolds David and threatens him to be sent away where he can't do damage to anybody else.

Victoria is surprised that Burke seems amused or pleased by the trouble in the Collins family. He says he feels it is like "the judgement of the gods." Burke asks Vicki to dinner, but she is too upset to go anywhere. Burke again tells her to go back home.

David: i didn't do it. I didn't have anything to with it.
Roger: Don't lie to me, David, it's no use! You're a little murderer, that's what you are! A rotten, lying little murderer, and you're going to get what you deserve. i'm going to have you sent away where you can't do damage to anybody else.
