While looking for David, Victoria attempts to open the storeroom in the basement. She is confronted by a man who accuses her of snooping. Elizabeth interrupts the encounter and introduces the man as Matthew Morgan. Liz explains that the storeroom in the basement is always to be kept locked. Alone, Liz finds David who expresses misgivings about his new governess. In the drawing room, Vicki tries to smooth things over with Matthew after a poor first impression. Matthew explains that the day Mr Stoddard left, Mrs Stoddard fired every servant and hired only him to care for the house. Vicki is curious why Elizabeth chose her to work at Collinwood, but Liz is evasive in her responses.
