Roger admits to Elizabeth that David tried to kill him; When Sheriff Carter questions her, she lies to protect David.


My name is Victoria Winters. Here in Collinwood, there is a moment of quiet. Even the wind has subsided, and the threat of a storm is a thing of the past. But there are other storms, the unending chill of fear that sweeps through the silent corridors, always reminding a man of how close he has come to death.

Roger tells Elizabeth that David tried to kill him and recounts at length several facts. He shows her the bleeder valve. Bill tells Carter that Burke is guilty. They tell each other about the detective. Bill likes Burke and Carter asks Bill about David's relationship with Roger. Roger calls David and "[his] wife, Laura" bad names. They married after Burke's trial; prior to that, she had been Burke's girl. David was born 8 months after the wedding. He implies something about David's paternity. Roger believes his time with David is over.

Bill tells Jonas that David hoped Roger would die. Jonas uses forensic evidence to clear Burke, whom he now claims he never really suspected. Bill is skeptical but comes around; Jonas isn't sure what to do about his evidence. Roger and Elizabeth argue; he wants David sent away and she wants to protect him. Elizabeth says David’s been forced to live with Roger's guilt, which he claims not to have. Elizabeth scolds Roger on his behavior towards David and tells him she wants to stand by David as she did Roger; Roger flatly states David may not be his son. Elizabeth insists David is the last Collins. She plans to cover the whole thing up. The cops arrive. Roger thinks Burke's arrest at this time would be ironic. Roger clears Burke, which annoys Elizabeth.

Elizabeth tries to stop Roger and Jonas from implicating David by lying that the bleeder valve was terminally loose (per Matthew). Jonas has a glint in his eye, and insinuates that David is guilty. Roger tells Liz that a day will come when she regrets protecting David.

Memorable quotes

Roger: He's a monster, Liz, he's been nothing but trouble to me since the day he was born. David and his mother. My loving wife and my adoring son. Laura and David. Love and respect. Liz, it was hell.
Elizabeth: Our family stands together. We always have and we always will.
