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
