Responding to Victoria's story, Burke shows her the report his detective finished, but it reveals nothing she does not know already.

Synopsis Edit

My name is Victoria Winters. I began my search in Collinwood. There in the great mansion on Widows' Hill, surrounded by the ghosts of the past, I'd hoped to unlock the secrets of my beginning. But the key has not yet been found and the search goes on, carrying me to a meeting with a man I wasn't sure I could trust.

Burke tries to get Victoria to eat with him, but Victoria seems primarily interested in the report the private detective wrote about her. They go to his hotel room.

Joe apologizes and Carolyn forgives him. Carolyn refers to the painting of Jeremiah Collins over the fireplace as her great-grandfather, a drunk. Carolyn wants Joe to apologize to Burke, too, and tells him the Big Lie.

Victoria learns nothing new from Strake's report. She suspects Burke's offer to help her is really an offer to hurt the Collins family. Burke makes a pass at Victoria. She recounts her story about being a foundling. Joe tries to pay Burke back and sees Victoria with him in the room. Joe pays him $8 plus tip. Burke ordered two steaks for dinner, but, after seeing Joe, she doesn't want to stay any longer. Victoria gives Burke a rain check.

Memorable quotes Edit

Burke: (to Victoria) What you've seen is just a ripple. You haven't touched the whirlpool, but it is there.

Background information and notes Edit

Production Edit

Story Edit

  • From age of 2 to 16, Victoria received $50 from "someone" each and every month.

Bloopers and continuity errors Edit

  • Carolyn states that Jeremiah Collins is her great-grandfather, although her mother said that he was her great-grandfather in episode 2. Both of these facts will be contradicted later on in the series in which it is established the current Collins family is descended from Daniel Collins, Jeremiah's cousin.
  • Alexandra Moltke fluffs the line "until I was sixteen".
