- My name is Victoria Winters. The battle over Collinwood has been joined. Either for or against. Yet it isn't always an easy decision. For some more difficult than for others.
Carolyn tells Elizabeth about the conversation she had with Burke (42). Elizabeth admits that she understands why Carolyn is taken by Burke... he's very attractive. She also admits the events of 74 and to being intrigued by the mystery surrounding Burke. Elizabeth understands the mysteriousness and tells Carolyn that she met a mysterious man many years ago and was attracted to him--it was Paul Stoddard, Carolyn's father. Carolyn asks what their life together was like, and Elizabeth says it was nothing.
David asks Matthew for advice about a problem. Matthew tells David to choose a side and stick with it, no one can live with divided loyalties. David is surprised that Matthew knows he's talking about Burke and Elizabeth. He 'accuses' Matthew of being smart. Matthew says he'd do anything for Elizabeth, even give up a good friend. David shows Matthew a picture of Burke at his first oil strike, which he 'borrowed' from Burke. Carolyn tells David that Elizabeth wants to talk to him. Matthew warns Carolyn away from Burke and likens him to a wounded tiger, which even an experienced hunter won't go after. Carolyn agrees that Burke is a tiger, upsetting Matthew.
David and Elizabeth argue about Burke. He doesn't believe that Burke threatened to take everything the Collins' own. Elizabeth tells him he's either for her or against her. Carolyn searches David's room for a missing picture and tells Matthew of Burke's 'threat' to put them out on the street. David won't promise Elizabeth that he'll never see Burke again. Elizabeth attempts to forbid him, and he suspects that's why Elizabeth is hiring Mrs. Johnson (but he doesn't reveal the intrigue that allows him to know about the hiring). Carolyn accuses David of stealing, and he calls her out. He says that Burke probably likes Victoria better. Carolyn is clearly jealous. Matthew scolds the cousins for fighting over a familial enemy. Elizabeth forbids David to say Burke's name in this house again. David secretly shouts "Burke Devlin, Burke Devlin, Burke Devlin!" when alone.
