Joe and Carolyn are at the Blue Whale, trying to patch up their recent troubles. In Bangor, Victoria and Frank have dinner together.

Synopsis[]

My name is Victoria Winters. I have left the terrifying shadows of Collinwood to continue a search that has occupied most of my life; a search to discover the secret of my identity. I have just met a friendly and understanding stranger who might help me end that search. Back in Collinsport, Carolyn Stoddard is searching too; for love and understanding and peace of mind.

Joe thinks Carolyn is only pretending to have a good time ; she claims the recent events at Collinwood are causing her nerves. She tells him about Victoria seeing Bill's ghost, which Joe disbelieves. Joe admits he's unsure of Carolyn now. Maggie and Sam enter and receive from Carolyn a dinner invitation.

Victoria tells Frank that a nurse at the Foundling Home was her fantasy mother until she got another job.

While dancing, Carolyn tells Joe she invited Maggie and Sam to their table because she wanted to demonstrate a lack of hard feelings. Sam asks Maggie how she feels about Joe and Carolyn.

Frank tells Victoria he'll help her even though Hanscombe is a popular name in these parts. He wants to see her again. Richard is ominous about Frank's enthusiasm for Victoria's 'lost cause'.

Maggie learns that Victoria's been in Bangor for a few days, and they all conclude that Malloy's ghost is proof that the Governess needed a vacation. Sam is worried about the story. Maggie worries that Victoria will be lonesome, and Carolyn spews that Burke is with her. Joe rightly stands up for himself and says he's not going to be Carolyn's sap. Maggie smiles.

Frank asks Richard about his attitude toward Victoria, and gets reminded that Victoria isn't their client: Elizabeth Collins Stoddard is.

Sam orders additional drinks; Joe returns after having dropped off Carolyn and Sam asks Joe to see Maggie home. He has to do something. Maggie and Joe again talk boats and share laughs.

Memorable quotes[]

Joe: (to Carolyn) You can't expect me to come crawling back every time Devlin isn't around. Now, you'd better start understanding that right now!

Sam: Penny for your thoughts.
Maggie: Don't squander your money.

Dramatis personae[]

Background information and notes[]

Production[]

  • First episode written by Ron Sproat.
  • Sam sticks with his pipe rather than cigarettes; the pipe goes with his "artistic" image and the "wise old sayings" Maggie accuses him of propounding.
  • Carolyn remarks that Maggie's dress is blue.

Story[]

  • Carolyn and Joe have known each other for most of their lives.
  • Carolyn reminisces about the walks she and Joe used to take to "Eagle Point." Later in the series, we will hear a great deal about a place called "Eagle Hill."
  • Joe has lived in Collinsport all his life.
  • When Victoria was 9 years old, she became attached to a woman who came to the foundling home.
  • TIMELINE: It was a few days ago when Victoria found the ledger sheet with B. Hanscombe's name on it. Maggie hasn't seen Victoria in a couple of days. Though fan thought is that this is not the case, Frank tells Vicki that she's been working for the Collins family for "a couple of months."

Bloopers and continuity errors[]

  • Frank Garner says he will do what he can to help Victoria solve the mystery and the scene shifts back to Blue Whale. David Ford is talking and seems to be giving some direction for the upcoming scene.
  • At the Blue Whale soon after Carolyn reveals that Victoria is in Bangor with Burke a camera can be seen on the right side of the screen.
  • Joe says that has lived in Collinwood all his life, not Collinsport.

End credits announcements[]

  • Come share a wondrous world of make-believe when Samuel Goldwyn presents "Hans Christian Andersen" starring Danny Kaye, a fabulous musical fable in color tomorrow night here on ABC.
  • Dark Shadows is a Dan Curtis Production.
