Sheriff Patterson informs Elizabeth that the coroner ruled Bill's death an accidental drowning.



My name is Victoria Winters. Yesterday is alive in the Great House on Widows' Hill and with it the memory of sudden death. A death that seems to center the attention of many people on one office in Collinsport

Sam Evans drops by the Sheriff's office, and is unnerved to find out that George has been waiting for him. The Sheriff jokes about his new batch of friends, making Sam more nervous. George says they'll know in a few hours whether Sam's a painter or a murder suspect.

David's upset that Liz hasn't fired Vicki and tries to tattle on her. David tells Liz he only likes her and Burke; Liz doesn't like that. David resents Liz's treating him like a child and turns on his aunt when he suspects she may have told the Sheriff that Burke killed Bill Malloy. David attempts to call Burke. Maggie and Sam chat about the determination -- Maggie's heard gossip that it's to be homicide. David runs off and Liz is powerless to stop him.

The Sheriff visits Liz and tells her that the Coroner has ruled Malloy's death accidental. Sam says that the Coroner's report won't end the talk of Malloy's death. David shows up at the Diner looking for Burke. David and Sam talk about art and Roger. Sam regrets that David is a Collins and tells Maggie that Burke will rampage if the Coroner's report doesn't favor him.
