Secretly planning to get her hired as housekeeper at Collinwood, they believe Malloy was murdered and hope Mrs. Johnson will be able to gather evidence against Roger Collins. Burke and Mrs. Johnson discuss Vicki's mysterious hiring as Collinwood governess. Mrs. Johnson is unaware of Vicki's origin and Burke's investigators revealed nothing.

Amazing what you can buy with hot chocolate and a small photograph...
