"Carolyn's Mother Is a Witch!"
1 August 2011 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

In the Collinwood breakfast room, Vicki (Alexandra Moltke) reviews Burke, Roger and the brake tampering incident with Carolyn (Nancy Barrett). Carolyn asks, "What's a bleeder valve?" She hopes Vicki is correct about Burke. Vicki thinks the perpetrator "may try again." At the inn, Malloy visits Burke and confronts him about his ten-year-old vow to return and destroy the Collins family. Vicki receives the letter from the foundling home (dictated in episode 8) regarding detective Wilbur Strake while Malloy tries to explain his private investigators to a suspicious Malloy...

Vicki tells Carolyn an intriguing story about the foundling home. When she was six-years-old, an attendant said Vicki's parents were coming to take her home. Vicki waited for two weeks, then assumed this was some kind of prank. If so, we can only hope the employee was fired. This was the first episode directed by John Sedwick, who stepped up to give Lela Swift some deserved time off. The opening of the episode features fresh water footage. Two characters are mentioned who will eventually appear, Collinsport lawman Jonas Carter and private investigator Stuart Bronson...
