Sam unsuccessfully tries to get out of painting a portrait of Burke; Carolyn is jealous over Victoria's meeting with Burke.

Synopsis Edit

My name is Victoria Winters. The hand of death brushed close to the house on Widows' Hill then moved away, stirring the musty air with its touch, filling the corridors with the overpowering scent of fear and hatred.

Joe calls Carolyn and gloats about finding Victoria in Burke's room. She's upset and it's obvious. David eavesdrops on the phone in the hall, and lies to Carolyn that he was listening. He suggests that Victoria is only with Burke because Carolyn's interested in him. Sam looks for Maggie. Burke and Sam chat about the gossip concerning the accident. Burke tells Sam the incident is cleared up, and he's off the hook. Sam says he can't do Burke's portrait several times and drinks "for the first time today, if you can believe that" (it's about 10PM). Burke offers $1,500 ($500 more) to do the portrait to convince Sam, who finally agrees and takes a deep gulp of the whiskey.

In the diner, Sam sees Joe again and starts waxing eloquent about the madhouse at Collinwood. He tells Joe to get Carolyn out of there before it's too late. The end of the scene has Sam almost losing his marbles because of the trouble he's wrapped up in with the Collins family.

Victoria returns to Collinwood. She runs into Carolyn, who is obviously jealous of Victoria's meeting with Burke Devlin. Victoria tells her that there is nothing between her and Burke and Carolyn finally apologizes.

Sam advises Joe to take Carolyn away. He insists that he loves his hometown and has no intention of leaving. David tells Victoria that she's going to be sorry she ever came to Collinwood.

Memorable quotes Edit
