Burke invites himself to dinner with Sam, Maggie, and Victoria, and tells his version of the accident that sent him to prison ten years ago

Synopsis Edit

My name is Victoria Winters. The great house on Widows' Hill stands as a dread reminder of a past that will not die. It casts its shadows far into the night, reaching out to another house, a cottage, into which the past has suddenly and unexpectedly intruded.

Burke invites himself to dinner, where he forces talk of the manslaughter trial. He tells Victoria that Roger took over the wheel and was responsible for hitting the man. Sam escapes during a break in the conversation, and he goes to the Inn to retrieve his letter. He is disheartened when he learns that he needs Maggie's permission to get the letter. Burke bullies the girls. Maggie believes that Sam is a good man and is Burke's friend. She also believes that Sam would have turned in evidence 10 years ago had he had any. Maggie admits that since Burke's return, Sam has been edgy and nervous, especially about Roger Collins. Victoria offers a plausible but erroneous explanation for Sam's presence at the mystery meeting. Burke returns to the hotel and learns that Sam was there and attempted to retrieve a letter of Maggie's. Sam appears and tells Burke he's ready to talk in Burke's room.
