- My name is Victoria Winters. Night has come to Collinwood and brought with it no answer to the mystery of a man's disappearance. Instead there is restlessness. A restlessness that draws me out of the great house and into the darkness around it. A restlessness that seems to gnaw at everyone who lives on the crest of Widows' Hill.
Victoria goes out for a night stroll and meets up with Carolyn atop Widow's Hill. They talk about ghosts and feelings. Carolyn consults the Widows when she and Victoria hear them. Carolyn is surprisingly morose about her own future. David tells Elizabeth he's been seeing ghosts. Carolyn and Victoria make tea. The phone rings and it's Joe, not Bill Malloy or Roger. Elizabeth recounts, on Carolyn's behest, that there is a third death in the legend on Widow's Hill (9). Roger comes home.
Victoria wakes David up after finding the word 'death' written in lipstick on her mirror. David purports it was a widow who wrote it. Victoria and Carolyn go out looking for Carolyn's watch, which must have fallen off while they were up there chatting morbidly. Roger enjoys his cold chicken sandwich and a glass of milk. Roger derides Elizabeth her hiding in Collinwood after she grills him about his whereabouts since leaving the office at her behest. He claims that he went out to his cousins' house, but they hadn't seen him in weeks or heard from him in days. Elizabeth asks Roger about Malloy's night visit. He knows it was Vicki who gave him up, and lies that he and Malloy have a difference over some unnameable accounts. Carolyn and Victoria leave and David tells Elizabeth that Miss Winters is going to find death. He's right; they see a body on the rocks at the bottom of Widow's Hill.
Memorable quotes Edit
- Victoria: What's hit you? The last time I saw you, you were in such a good mood.
- Carolyn: That's me: up and down, in and out, never the same girl twice.
- Roger: Cold chicken sandwich and a glass of milk. It's better than caviar at this time of night.
- Carolyn: It's only us, Mother. Back from the sea.
- Victoria: Have you heard anything from Bill Malloy yet?
- Elizabeth: No. When Uncle Roger gets home, come right upstairs and tell me. I'll be in David's room.
- Victoria: Is there something wrong with David?
- Elizabeth: No, he's just been afflicted with the family disease. He's been seeing ghosts.
- Carolyn: Friend or foe, advance and be recognized. Even the tutors are out tonight. Hello, Vicki.
- Victoria: Hi.
- Carolyn: I thought this would be my own lonely, quiet little spot tonight. But we all share our possessions here on Widows' Hill.
