Burke discovers that Bill is dead.

Synopsis Edit

My name is Victoria Winters. The musty corridors of Collinwood are behind me at the moment. Ahead of me are the streets of Collinsport itself and a journey that might take me into the dead world of the past. A journey I hope will start at a small restaurant on the main street of this very small town.

Burke still doesn't know that Bill Malloy, who gave him his start as a kid, has been found dead (55). Maggie drops the news and Burke regrets Malloy's quest for truth. Maggie says Bill drowned, he wasn't murdered. He asks if Sam knows about Malloy's death. Victoria shows up for lunch. She and Burke exchange ideas heatedly on how upset Roger is about Malloy's death. The autopsy report arrives. The Sheriff and Burke talk about George's job. Victoria tells Maggie about her sad past and receives a dinner invitation. Burke wants to know what the sheriff knows and wants to kill the killer. Malloy had a blow on the head, but that doesn't mean much. Victoria refuses an invitation from Burke in favor of keeping her dinner date with Sam and Maggie.

Memorable quotes Edit

Burke: (about Victoria) Nice girl.
Maggie: Very.
Burke: It's too bad she's always walking into the lion's den.

Victoria: That was a wonderful lunch, Maggie. How much do I owe you?
Maggie: It's on the house.
Victoria: Uh-uh!
Maggie: Oh, don't worry about it. The clam chowder was two weeks old and the lobster roll's from last year. Just don't send me your doctor bills.

Maggie invites Victoria to dinner later in the evening (she will attend as planned in episode 60). Burke left the Blue Whale at 10:45pm to go to Bill's meeting.
