"If You're Not Yourself, Then Who Are You?"
wes-connors from Earth
18 November 2011
In his hotel room, Burke (Mitchell Ryan) discusses the sheriff's
finding of "accidental death due to drowning" with a visiting Mrs.
Johnson (Clarice Blackburn). Burke asks, "Who killed Bill Malloy?"
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.
They agree to put on a public pretense of not liking each other...
Burke calls James Blair and arranges for him to contact Collins lawyers
Richard and Frank Garner with an offer...
Downstairs at the hotel restaurant, Sam and Maggie have coffee. Their
good mood from last evening's outing at the Blue Whale has changed
considerably. Interested in breakfast and gossip, Burke and Mrs.
Johnson arrive separately. Going the extra mile, Mrs. Johnson hurls an
accusation at Burke in front of Sam, Maggie and David (David Henesy).
Burke, who has pledged to completely take away David's inheritance and
make his family homeless, smooths things over with David and tries to
convince him Mrs. Johnson won't be his jailer. Amazing what you can buy
with hot chocolate and a small photograph...
