- My name is Victoria Winters. The brightness of the morning cannot mask the fact that the night has been marked by a restless, fitful sleep. Especially for one young woman who has been disturbed by strange premonitions and events that she does not fully understand.
Carolyn is pacing the Drawing room while Victoria plays solitaire. The girls are nervous and worried that David is at Laura's Cottage. Victoria tries to convince both herself and Carolyn Laura won't harm David. But Carolyn is convinced David is in terrible danger.
Carolyn decides to throw Laura off Collinwood; Victoria reasons that Roger might let David go with Laura if she did that. Carolyn learns of Guthrie's intentions to hold a séance; Carolyn doesn't know how that will help Elizabeth, but thinks it will be a hoot anyway. David comes in and announces he's planning another trip to his mother's. Carolyn scolds him and Victoria cools her jets. David says Josette was protecting him, he smelled her perfume so he knew nothing bad could happen to him. He enjoyed spending time with Laura. David gets distracted staring into the fire.
Carolyn goes to answer the door, where Joe tells her he needs a ledger from Elizabeth's desk. Joe and Carolyn agree it's been awhile since they've seen each other. Joe offers his help after learning that the doctors still don't know what's wrong with Elizabeth. Carolyn is curious what the townsfolk are saying about Elizabeth's illness. Is there any talk of unnatural causes? The majority of townies are sympathetic to Elizabeth; the rest can't be blamed because what the heck else is there to do in Collinsport? Carolyn pries into Joe's personal life despite already having talked about this in 154. Joe states he's not an eraser... why give someone a second chance when she's hurt you once? Carolyn tells Joe she's free; Joe says he's not. They decide to still be friends. Meanwhile, David tells Victoria he was silly to have ever been afraid of Laura.
On a date with Joe, Maggie is worried about Sam. Joe tells Maggie he saw Carolyn. Maggie is wry about their encounter and tells him there's no ropes holding him to her. They kiss and she again is distracted by Sam's raucous laughter. Maggie talks to Sam about the painting, about which he's blabbed to everybody. He's also been sought out by Guthrie concerning Elizabeth's illness and his paintings. Maggie doesn't want to know what's going on up at Collinwood. Sam tries to figure out what's going on with Collinwood and Elizabeth's illness and states he's up to his ears in the whole mess. After staring at a match flame, he smiles and gets another drink.
Burke comes into the Blue Whale and sits down with Joe; they declare a truce because neither of them is interested in Carolyn anymore. They talk about how nice Carolyn could be if she weren't so spoiled. Burke remarks that he probably treated Carolyn as badly as Carolyn treated Joe. Joe is happy he's found someone more stable; Maggie comes back. Maggie tells the boys that Guthrie's been nosing around Sam's paintings and Laura Collins herself. Joe jokes that Burke, not Sam, is the expert on that subject. Burke buys Sam a drink and learns about his painting.
