- My name is Victoria Winters. Collinwood seems a thousand miles away tonight. Yet my only hope is that someone is driving from there to pick me up in Bangor and rescue me.
While a storm rages Victoria gives Roger the rundown on the pen and her belief that Burke lost it while murdering Bill Malloy. Roger also gets a secure statement that he can waste the evidence sans suspicion. He offers alternative explanations for Burke's pen-ownership and why they shouldn't go to the police.
Sheriff Patterson's car has stalled and its radio is dead, so he goes to Collinwood and makes calls. The road's washed out. Elizabeth and the Sheriff talk about fighting Burke and his Logansport deal. The back road to Bangor is totally washed out; Elizabeth says nobody in their right mind would use it.
Roger and Victoria take shelter in a shack after the car stalls near a pond. They joke about being married, and she reminds him he already is. She tells him about David's tales of Roger and Laura's tumultuous marriage. As they are chatting, Roger pleads with her to leave Collinwood. She's in personal danger despite the pen not being strong evidence. Roger tells Victoria that Malloy hated him and would have found a false witness to testify against him who must have backed out and so Burke lost it and killed Malloy. Roger tries to get Victoria to clam up, she says that would be withholding evidence. He manhandles her and says, "then withhold it, you little idiot!" He is covering his tracks when the Sheriff comes to the rescue.
