Episode cast overview:
Victoria Winters (as Alexandra Moltke)


Her first night at Collinwood, Victoria is shaken when she hears Roger approach her door and sees the knob turn. In the hall, Elizabeth demands that Roger come downstairs with her. Downstairs, Elizabeth chastises Roger for attempting to enter Victoria's room, uninvited, and threatens to throw him out of the house. Roger informs her that Burke is back for revenge. Their raised voices bring Carolyn into the room, and Roger sends her to fetch Victoria. Roger grills Vicki about Burke, and she is insulted by his accusations. Later that night, Vicki is awakened by wailing sobs that emanate from somewhere in the house. In the foyer, Vicki sees ten year-old David who utters three words, "I hate you!" Written by L. Hamre

Did You Know?


Victoria Winters: My name is Victoria Winters. The dark night presses in on the crest of Widows' Hill as though it were alive. I can almost feel it crushing against the windows, whispering to me, telling me to run while I can. But I've come too far and waited too long, and the fear of darkness is only for children.

User Reviews

David first appears, but otherwise a throwaway, yet still entertaining episode
6 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After arguing quite loudly with Elizabeth Collins, Roger question Victoria about Devlin thinking that she knows more then she's letting on. Later, Victoria awakens to a wailing cry, following the ghastly sound she's greeted quite rudely by David, the 10 year-old boy that she was hired to care for.

Not a great deal happens in this episode and it pretty much just treads ground that was already traversed in previous episodes aside from the ominous introduction of the 10 year-old David.Other than that short segment late in the episode, you could skip this without worrying about not being up to speed on Dark Shadows in the least.
