Episode cast overview:


At the hotel, Burke misleads Carolyn into believing that he is only stopping in Collinsport for a few days, and that Roger has nothing to fear from him. Back at the house, Liz is worried about David's behavior, but believes having Victoria as a governess will help him. Roger responds that David belongs in an institution. Roger catches David eavesdropping and threatens him. Liz comes to David's defense and assures him that she won't let him be sent away. David shouts at his father, "I hope Burke Devlin comes back here, and I hope he gets even with you!" Carolyn returns home, and brings Burke with her. Written by L. Hamre

"All I Care About Is the Future"

At Collinwood, Liz (Joan Bennett) is worried about David (David Henesy), who continues to speak and behave erratically. The boy overhears his father Roger (Louis Edmonds) tell Liz he wants David put in an institution. Liz tells Roger she allowed him to return for David's sake only, and reasserts her reason for hiring Vicki. In Collinsport, Burke takes advantage of hotel room visitor Carolyn's interest by misleading her about his intentions. Later, Liz is in a dream-like state when she sees David mysteriously covered with dirt and is startled by a visitor to Collinwood...

David's robot and props are swiped from "The Nanny" (1965). The plot point about Burke leaving town in two days has a very short shelf life; probably, it was made to help speed up the closing scene and alleviate upcoming conversations. This episode's end sets up a forthcoming big event...

This is the first episode in which Alexandra Moltke does not appear, but she will continue to provide the opening narration, in character beginning with, "My name is Victoria Winters…" Since other performers are credited with unseen sobs and screams, Ms. Moltke should receive a credit for working on these episodes. Later on, the opening voice-over was assigned to rotating performers, and the "character" speaking could better be described as omniscient narrators. This was somewhat like the nighttime serial "Peyton Place" (1964-1969) handled the situation...
