"Things That Go Bump in the Night"
21 November 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Though smiling from behind the opening production slate, (Alexandra Moltke's) Vicki is in a frightened mood. David has locked her up in a room in the closed off West Wing of Collinwood. Meanwhile, Carolyn (Nancy Barrett) tells Liz (Joan Bennett) she's going out for the evening. Carolyn has put up her hair and puts on her second sexiest dress. Liz is worried about Vicki. She sympathizes with Joe, saying, "The world doesn't revolve around Carolyn Stoddard."...

Drunk at the Blue Whale, Burke (Mitchell Ryan) orders another drink from "Andy" (Bob O'Connell) when Sam walks in - from a small portion of filmed footage. Possibly due to the stormy night, the only other customer is lonely Walter Arnold, sitting at the bar. Sam joins Burke and they sing a few rounds of "(What Shall We Do with the) Drunken Sailor?" which was a favorite song of Bill Malloy. Burke and Sam half-heartedly wonder if Malloy's ghost might be out looking for his murderer. Sure enough, Malloy appears to Vicki at Collinwood, warning her to leave town before she is also killed...

This was the second appearance of a ghost on screen - in this case, the relatively freshly deceased Bill Malloy. For the first time, a killed-off actor, Frank Schofield, reappeared in the credits. Also notable was the last writer Art Wallace was credited as such; his "Dark Shadows" input was diminishing, though he would still receive creator credit.
