             It is night.  A train is rattling through the dark countryside.
          Inside the train a young woman glances out the window and
          thinks to herself:

            "My name is Victoria Winters. My journey is beginning - a
          journey that I hope will open the doors of life to me, and
          link my past with my future. A journey that will bring me
          to a strange and dark place - to the edge of the sea high
          atop Widow's Hill - a house called Collinwood. A world I've
          never known, with people I've never met. People who tonight
          are still only shadows in my mind, and who will soon fill
          the days and nights of my tomorrows."

             The great dark house known as Collinwood looms on the crest of
          the rocky cliff known as Widow's Hill, overlooking the small
          Maine fishing village of Collinsport, the home of the Collins
          Family. Modelled in the style of an English manor house, there
          is a large central hall with wings extending in both directions.
          Two stories in height, a total of forty rooms in all, a graceful
          carriage rodad adding majesty to its entrance, commanding a
          magnificent view of the ocean, Collinwood is the most imposing
          structure in the area.  Now, however, a good portion of it
          is closed off, weeds have overgrown the formal gardens, and
          the few people living in it, the sole remaining members of
          the Collins family, walk like ghosts through its dark
             It is about 8:30 on a windy October night.  The moaning of
          the wind sounds like a banshee's cry.  Inside the drawing
          room of Collinwood is a woman staring out the window,
          half searching for someone and half lost in brooding thought.
          Aged 56, of medium height, but with a proud, upright bearing
          that makes her seem taller than she is, this is Elizabeth
          Stoddard Collins, mistress of Collinwood.  There is strenght,
          power and determination in this woman, and yet a fleeting
          echo of pain is etched in the sharp lines around her mouth.
          The drawing room of Collinwood is large and gloomy.  Panelled
          walls, portraits of family founders, a large grand piano,
          an unlit fireplace.
             Elizabeth continues to stand at the window, staring out
          into the night.  Her brother Roger, an man in his early
          40's, is at the liquor cabinet pouring himself a brandy.
          He is fair haired, handsome, with just a touch of weakness
          about the mouth.  He is a man with a faint air of condescension.
          He remarks dryly to Elizabeth, "A watched pot never boils, to
          coin a phrase".  Elizabeth ignores him and asks, "Why don't you
          look in on your son?"  Roger replies,  "The little monster's
          asleep, and I'm delighted".  He takes a sip of his brandy and
          continues, " I choose my words with infinite precision".
          Elizabeth grumbles, "Roger, you're a fool!"  Roger counters,
          "Not one-tenth the fool you are.  Look at you, standing there
          by the window, waiting for someone who should never have been
          asked to come here in the first place!"  Elizabeth says, "She'll
          work out very well, I'm sure".  Roger continues, "Doing what?
          Holding my little son's hands?  Comforting you when the shutters
          creak?   Liz, with all our ghosts, we don't need any strangers in
          this house, and you know it".  Elizbeth says, "I think I can be
          the judge of that".  Roger continues, "But you don't even know
          the girl.  Elizabeth, I'm your brother and I'm thinking only of
          your welfare.  Why bring someone all the way up from New York
          to do something we're perfectly capable of handling ourselves?"
          Why bring her here?"  Elizabeth, quietly and firmly, replies,
          "Because I choose to do so!"  Roger begs, "Come to your senses,
          Liz.  When the girl comes, give her a month's salary, and tell
          her to go back to where she came from".  Elizbeth doesn't answer,
          turning to stare out the window again.  Roger gets a bit more
          intense as he goes to her, saying, "Why don't you open the
          the doors and asks the whole town to come trooping the house
          while you're at it?"  Elizabeth says, flatly, not even looking
          at him, The girl will stay!"  Roger, exasperated, says,
          "You ARE a fool, Elizabeth! Yes, you ARE!  Inviting problems
          to live with you, when..."  Elizabeth retorts, "The only
          problem I've invited, Roger is standing before me at this
          moment!  I've invited Miss Winters here and she'll stay!!"
          They stare at each other for a long moment, then Roger retreats.
          He forces himself to smile affably.  With a shaking hand,
          he takes another sip of brandy.  Glancing at Roger with
          something close to disgust, Elizabeth turns and exits the room.
          Roger stands quietly, watching her go, his mouth working in
          his attempt to control his tension.  Suddenly, his and
          tightens convulsively, crushing the brandy glass he has
          been holding.
            The train continues to speed through the dark countryside.
          Inside one of the coaches, there are about 10 passengers.
          A conductor enters the car from one end and starts
          inspecting the ticket stubs that are inserted in the backs
          of the seats.  He stops besides a man sitting at the right rear
          of the coach.  The man, darkly handsome, is seated quietly,
          his head leaning back, staring, lost in thought, an air
          of mystery and strength surrounding him.  The conductor
          hesitates a moment, then tells the man,  "Mister, we'll
          be in Collinsport in 10 minutes", but the man just glances
          at him without saying a word.  Meanwhile, in an aisle seat
          to the left of the aisle next to Victoria Winter's window seat,
          a garrulous old woman is telling Vicky, "...the winters! That's
          what'll get you down up here in Maine.  They're cold, and
          damp, and you'll".  She is interrupted by the Conductor telling
          Vicky, "Collinsport in 10 minutes, Miss.  Better have your baggage
          ready.  Only two of you are getting off, so we won't be here
          very long".  The old woman continues to prattle on, "This train
          hasn't made a regular stop in Collinsport in maybe five years!
          That's the kind of place it is.  Why are you going to Collinsport
          anyway?"  Vicky replies, "A Job".  The old woman asks, "Now what
          kind of job would bring a girl like you all the way up from New
          York?".  Without waiting for an answer, she continues to talk,
          "I've been living up in this part of the country all my life,
          and I've been to Collinsport just once, only once, and that
          was more than enough for me!", but Vicky, lost in thought, isn't
          listening.  She is thinking back to the events that have put her
          on the train, to an office in a foundling home in New York...
             Mrs. Hopewell, director of services for the foundling home,
          is holding a letter as she talks to Vicky, dressed in the white
          uniform of an aide, saying, "Elizabeth Collins Stoddard...
          Collinport, Maine...I'm afraid the name means nothing to
          me, Victoria.  When did you get this letter?"  Vicky replies,
          "This morning.  Mrs. Hopewell, I don't know why she should
          offer ME the position.  I've never even heard of the woman".
          Mrs. Hopewell smiles faintly and says, "Obviously she's heard
          of YOU".  Vicky asks, "But how?"  Mrs. Hopewell shrugs and
          answers, "I don't know".  Vicky asks, "Are you sure?"
          Mrs. Hopewell replies, with some asperity, "I've already
          told you..."  Vicky interrupts her, "Mrs. Hopewell, I've
          looked at a map, and Collinsport is only 50 miles from
          Bangor".  Mrs. Hopewell tells her, soberly, "I see.  Well,
          surely you don't think there's any connection".  Vicky
          replies, "I don't know what to think.  All I do know is
          I've spent most of my life her in the Foundling Home...
          living...working now... and suddenly I get a letter from
          a woman I've never seen living in a town I've never heard
          of.  Wouldn't you say that's just a little bit strange?"
          Mrs. Hopewell, handing the letter back to Vicky, says,
          "What I'd say is you have an offer of a job as companion
          and governess at a fair rate of pay.  And the only question
          you'll have to decide is whether or not you want to take
          the position...."
             Vicky's mind comes back to the present as the old woman
          on the train in the seat next to her continues talking,
          "..go to a small town like Collinsport after you've been in New
          York, what are you going to do?  What are you going to do for fun
          in a place like..."  She is interrupted by the conductor announcing,
          "COLLINSPORT!  Next stop, Collinsport!"  Vicky rushes to grab
          her luggage from the overhead rack.  The old woman asks, "Need
          any help, dearie?"  Vicky replies, "No, thanks".  The old woman
          wishes her, "Good luck!"
             Vicky stands on the platform at Collinport station.  There
          is a very large sign that says, "COLLINSPORT", but the platform
          is deserted except for Vicky and the brooding man, standing
          some distance from Vicky, staring silently into the distance.
          Vicky glances at him with some curiousty and a sense of
          apprehension that grips a lonely traveller alone in a strange
          place.  The man ignores her, lost in his own thoughts.  After
          a moment, Vicky gathers the courage and approaches him.  He
          continues to ignore her.  She asks him, "Excuse me, I wonder
          if you'd know how to get a taxi around here".  The man smiles
          slightly and replies,  "I wouldn't know what they have around here.
          Not anymore".  Vicky asks, "How do they expect anyone to get into
          town?"  The man jokes, "Broomsticks and  unicorns", then glances to
          the left and says,  "Or a chauffeured car".  Vicky looks in the
          same direction and sees a car pulling up.  The man tells her,
          "I can take you as far as the hotel Inn.  You can get a taxi
          there" - Very kind of you, Mr.."  The man answers, Devlin.  Burke
          Devlin".  Vicky tells him, "I'm Victoria Winters".  Burke remarks,
          "Welcome to the beginning and the end of the world, Miss Winters".
          Vicky replies,  "I'm not going that far.  Only to a house called
          Collinwood.  Do you know it?  Burke replies, "Yes. Very
          well. Shall we go?"
             Vicky and Burke enter the car.  The car drives off and
          eventually pulls up at a small inn.  Burke and Vicky exit
          the car and go into the inn, followed by a chauffeur with
          their suitcases.  They go into the small lobby of the
          Colllinsport Inn.   Burke glances around, a look of distaste
          on his face, and remarks, "It hasn't changed a bit!!", then
          asks Vicky, "Still want a taxi?" Vicky asks, "How else would I
          get to Collinwood?"  Burke tells her, "You can take my advice and
          get the bus to Bangor.  You can find a train to New York there
          and be home by morning".  Vicky replies, "No thanks, I'll settle
          for the taxi.  I'm staying in Collinsport".  The desk clerk,
          a small man in his fifties, sees Burke and happily says, "Well,
          if it isn't Burke Devlin!!  I haven't seen you since...", but
          Burke, obviously in no mood to talk about old times, snaps, "I
          wired ahead for three rooms!  Are they ready?"  The clerk
          meekly replies,  "Yes,sir.  yes, Mr. Devlin.  We've been expecting
          you.  We hav a message for you..."  Burke interrupts, "And I want
          a taxi for the girl", but the clerk tells him, "Sorry, but that
          won't be possible for awhile.  Harry Jones, well, you remember
          Harry..."  Once again Burke snaps angrily, "I don't know ANYONE
          here anymore!!!"  The clerk turns to Vicky and explains,
          "Harry, Harry Jones.  He runs our taxi.  He has a flat.  He's
          getting it fixed".  Burke, "How long will that take?"  The clerk
          starts to say, "Well...", but Vicky tells him, "I've come this
          far.  I can wait a few more minutes".  Burke remarks coldly,
          "If you want to".  The clerk gives Burke a piece of paper,
          then gesture towards a door and tells Vicky, "The Coffee Shop's
          in there.  I'll let you know when the taxi gets here".  Burke
          reads his message and asks, "When was this left here?"  The
          clerk replies, "About an hour ago".  Burke crumples the message
          up into ball, gestures towards the suitcases and tells the clerk,
          "The black ones go upstairs.  The red one is hers." and rushes
          out the frint door.  Vicky asks the clerk, "What a strange man.
          Do you know him?"  The clerk replies, "Since he was about this
          high", gesturing with his palm held a about three feet above the
          floor. Vicky goes through the a door into the adjoining coffee shop.
          At a tavern,  a small, weary looking man in his late fifties
          holding a mug of beer is pacing around, sipping as he paces.
          Finally, he sits down at a table.  Burke Devlin comes in through
          the door and comes to this table.  He grumbles, "You were supposed
          to meet me at the hotel, Strake!"  Strake calmly replies, "Hello,
          Mr. Devlin.  Have a seat", and calls out to the bartender, "Bring
          another beer for my friend!"  Burke snaps, "Listen, Strake, I
          didn't come here to drink!"  Strake replies, "Look, Mr. Devlin,
          you pay me well for the work I do.  You won't begrudge a man
          the chance to buy his employer a drink, will you?"  Burke replies,
          "Well, let's see what I'm pay you for!"  Strake says, "Fair enough.
          You know, I should charge you double, the way the people clam up
          around here.  Now, where do you want me to start?"  The waiter
          comes to the table with another mug of beer, sets it down before
          Burke, and leaves.  Strake remarks, "Nice guy.  Thinks I'm a real
          estate salesman.  That's a laugh, isn't it?  He says the joing
          really starts jumping in about half an hour when the kids
          get here".  Burke, impatient, says, "Now suppose you get
          started.  I want to know everything you have on the Collin's
          family.  Everything on anyone who lives on that hill, and everyone
          who has anything to do with them".  Strake asks hopefullly,
          "Then can I go back home to New York?"  Burke orders, "Start
          talking!" and takes a sip of his beer.
             The Collinsport Inn diner is a combination restaurant and coffee
          shop attched to the hotel.  It is relatively plain.  There are
          a number of tables, and a counter with stools.  At the moment,
          there are only two customers in the place, a lonely diner finishing
          a solitary dinner at one of the tables, and Vicky, seated at the
          counter, her suitcase at her feet.  The twenty three year old girl
          who works behind the counter brings Vicky a sandwich and a cup
          of coffee, asking, "Roast Beef Rare and Coffee, right?"  Vicky
          replies, "Right.  I'm starved!!", picking up a salt shaker, opening
          up the sandwich and shaking some salt on it. The counter girl saus,
          "And you are also a jerk".  Vicky, taken aback, asks, "I beg your
          pardon?"  The counter girl spells it out, "Jerk, J-E-R-K".  Vicky
          says, "Well, thanks!"  The counter girl replies, "Don't mention it",
          then continues, "The name's Maggie Evans, and right now, I'm the
          last link in a long string of gossips.  Sandwich rare enough for
          you?"  "It's fine, but I still don't understand why..."   Maggie
          explains,  "Well, a chauffeur tells a Desk Clerk, a Desk Clerk
          tells a housekeeper, who tells me that you're going to work up
          at Collinwood!  That makes you a jerk!"  Vicky asks, "But Why?"
          Maggie explains, "The Collins family is the biggest thing in
          this town.  THey has the  biggest cannery, the biggest fishing
          fleet, and the biggest, darkest, gloomiest old house around
          here.  And they're kooks, every one of them!"  Vicky smiles
          and says, "I don't believe that!"  Maggie replies, "All right.
          Move in there.  But you'd better look in that mirror right
          now because in two months, you're hair is going to be a glorious
          shade of gray".  Vicky protests, "You make it sound like an
          old English novel.  Rattling chains and ghosts in the corrirors".
          Maggie replies, "You think that's wrong?  I could tell you things
          about that house that would send you running all the way back to
          the railroad station!"  Vicky smiles and says, "I'd rather not
          hear them".  Maggie shakes her head and says, "OK, theres one
          born every minute.  But you'll need your strength.  Apple
          pie, on the house, and I won't take no for an answer!"  Vicky
          smiles and says, "Then I'll say yes!"  Maggie turns to get the
          pie.  Vicky's smile slowly fades as she's becoming even more
          fearful of what she's going into.  She glances at her
          reflection in the mirror behind the counter as she almost
          involutarily touches her hair and thinks back to another scene
          from the foundling home...
             She is in her room at the foundling home, packing her
          suitcase.  In the room with her is her roomate Sandy, a
          girl about Vicky's age.  Sandy asks, "What are you trying to do,
          bury yourself?"  Vicky replies, "Just the opposite".  Sandy,
          ignoring her, continues, "But a nowhere place like Collinport,
          Maine??  With your looks and brains, you could get a dozen jobs
          right here in New York! You've got a yen for fishing villages?"
          Vicky replies, "Sandy, I don't really want to go there, but I
          have to".  Sandy gasps, "That doesn't make any sense at all!"
          Vicky says, "It's true. It might be the most important step
          I've ever taken in my life".  Sandy asks, "To what?"  Vicky
          replies, "To me.  To finding me.  To seeing who I really am".
             Vicky snaps out of her daydream to find Maggie saying,
          "Did you say you were looking for something?"  Vicky replies,
          "No, I was  just...I mean I was just thinking".  Maggie remarks,
          "Say, you really are in trouble.  You're talking to yourself and
          you haven't even gone to the house yet!  Maybe you really do belong
          in that house".  Vicky replies, "Maybe I do", staring thoughtfully
          down at her coffee.
             Meanwhile, at the tavern, Strake is continuing to give his
          report to Burke Devlin, "The big problem was the old lady.  Not
          much I could dig up on her".  Burke asks, "Does she still run
          the business?"  Strake replies, "She still makes all the important
          decisions.  Her fishing fleet manager comes up to the house once
          a week".  Burke asks, "She really never leaves the house?"
          Strake replies, "Mrs. Elizabeth Stoddard Collins hasn't left
          that house in 18 years".  Burke remarks, "So that hasn't changed"
          and asks, "Did you find out why?" Strake replies, "There are a
          number of stories floating around, but none of them make any
          sense.  They'll all be in the report".  Burke muses, Maybe she
          needs a keeper".  Strake asks, "Who, you?"  Burke replies, "No,
          a girl who doesn't know what she's getting into!"
              Back at the hotel diner, Maggie is giving Vicky some advice,
          "If I were you, I'd stay in the hotel tonight, go up to Collinwood
          in the morining, and see the place before making my decision".
          The desk clerk, who's just come into the room, asks Vicky,  "Maggie
          here been bending your ear?"  Maggie indignantly tells him, "Just
          giving her some solid advice, that's all".  The desk clerk tells
          Vicky, "Don't listen to her, Miss Winters.  She'll have you packing
          your bags and heading for the hills!  The taxi is here".  Vicky
          tells Maggie, "Thanks for the pie!"  Maggie replies, "Sure.
          Consider it part of your last meal.  Good luck."  As Vicky
          prepares to go, a worried look on her face, she asks Maggie,
          "Tell me the truth.  You were just trying to make me nervous,
          weren't you?"  Maggie replies, not too convincingly, "Sure.  Sure
          I was.  It'll be a ball".
             Collinwood is in darkness except for the single window
          of the drawing room.  Nothing can be heard except for the
          moaning of the wind.  A taxi drives up and stops in front
          of the house.  Vicky steps out and looks up at the house
          with trepidation.  The driver puts her suitcase down beside
          her.  She pays, he tips his hat to her, gets back into
          the taxi and leaves.  Vicky is alone and feels it.  After
          a moment, she picks up her suitcase, goes to the front door,
          and hesitates.  Finally, gathering her courage, she knocks
          at the door.  She hears the sound of a bolt being withdrawn
          slowly.  The door is opened.  Vicky announes herself,
          I'm Victoria Winters.  Mrs."., but she does not finish her
          sentence as a woman inside says, "Come in, Miss Winters".

            Elizabeth Stoddard lets Victoria Winters into Collinwood.
         Vicky marvels, "What a large house!" and asks how many rooms there
         are.  Elizabeth replies, "About 40, but not all of them are in use."
         Vickie asks how many servants they have to run the house. Elizabeth
         replies, "We only have one man to do the heavy work. We do all the
         rest of it ourselves."
            At a bar called the Blue Whale, a petite blond woman is
         dancing. Burke Devlin, sitting at the bar, asks Wilbur Strake, "Is
         that her?" Strake replies, "That's her, that's Carolyn Stoddard."
         A man sitting at a table tells Carolyn that she's drunk and it's
         time for her to go home. The man Carolyn is dancing with objects
         to this. He and the man from the table start to fight, but Burke
         breaks it up. He tells the man from the table, "Haskell, after you
         take her home, come back here. I have something I want to talk to
         you about."
            At Collinwood, Elizabeth Stoddard takes Vickie up to her
         bedroom.  Vickie asks, "Why did you hire me, Mrs. Stoddard?" Elizabeth
         answers, "My brother Roger knew someone at the foundling home who
         recommended you." Vickie, puzzled, replies, "But I asked around and
         no one knew anything about the Collins' Family". Elizabeth replies,
         "You must have asked the wrong people". She excuses herself and
            Carolyn returns home. Elizabeth tells her that the new governess
         has come.
            Vickie comes downstairs. Finding the drawing room door closed, she
         decides to go out and take a walk. Outside, she stares over the cliff
         into the ocean. A man comes out of the trees and jokingly remarks,
         "Thinking of jumping? You wouldn't be the first one." He introduces
         himself as Roger Collins. She introduces herself and tells him, "I
         have you to thank for my being here." He asks what she means. She
         tells him, "Your sister told me it was you who hired me." Roger
         replies, strangely,  "If that's what she said.." Vicky points out
         to sea and asks, "What are those lights out there?" Roger replies,
         "Oh, it's probably a ship of some sort. We get ships from all over
         the world here at Collinsport."  Vickie remarks, "Strange. Ships
         from all over the world come here and I had trouble getting a
         taxi from the train station." Roger apologizes, "Sorry about that.
         There was some sort of mix up. I was supposed to come and pick you
         up." Vickie tells him, "No problem. A nice man I met on the train
         gave me a ride from the train station. I think he said he knew you.
         His name was Devlin." At the mention of the name, a look of shock
         crosses Roger's face. He gasps, "Devlin!? Are you sure?" She replies
         that she is.  He rushes off.
            Vicky returns to Collinwood, puzzled...

            Roger Collins drives to a small house. He goes to the door
         and knocks.  Getting no answer, he starts to bang on the door, but
         there's still no reply. He gets back into his car and drives off.
         Vicky is in her room writing a letter. There's a knock at
         the door.  She answers it. It's Elizabeth Stoddard's daughter
         Carolyn. She comes in and introduces herself and asks, "I hope I'm
         not bothering you." Vickie replies that she isn't, that she's only
         writing a letter to a friend.  She opens a drawer and puts the
         letter in it.  Carolyn tells her about the place and asks her,
         "Any questions?" Vicky replies, "Yes. One. Who's Burke Devlin?"
         Carolyn replies,"Burke Devlin? I don't know. Never heard the name."
         Vicky tells her, "Well, your uncle Roger has. When he heard the
         name, he reacted rather strangely." Carolyn muses, "Yes my uncle
         Roger. What a charming man! He's the kind of man a woman really
         wants.  Not like the man my mother's trying to fix me up with. Joe
         Haskell! He's just a fisherman! Can you imagine?..."
         Joe Haskell returns to the Blue Whale bar. Burke Devlin
         tells him, "I have a few questions to ask you about Carolyn
            Roger Collins goes to the diner at the Collinsport Inn.
         Maggie Evans, the waitress, tells him, "It's only 5 minutes till
         closing time." Roger tells her, "I need to see your father. It's
         important." She tells him she doesn't know where he is. He remarks,
         "I hear Burke Devlin is back."  She replies, "Yep. I understand
         he's hit it big. He took three rooms upstairs and has been handing
         out big tips. I remember how he used to pose for my father for
         quarters. Funny, my father used to be quite close to him, but he
         never mentioned him once while he was gone."
             At Collinwood, Vicky and Carolyn walk down into the drawing
         room.  Carolyn tells Vicky, "I don't know why Roger reacted like
         that when he heard the name 'Devlin'. He must have had a reason."
         Vicky points to a picture on the wall and asks who it is. Carolyn
         tells her, "That's Isaac Collins. He's the one who started the
         Collins Dynasty back in the 17th century." While they are talking,
         the door starts to open. Vicky sees the door open and tells Carolyn,
         "You know, I'm sure I closed that door." Carolyn tells her it must
         be the wind.
             At the Blue Whale, Burke Devlin tells Joe Haskell that he's
         willing to pay him $2375, that he knows he wants to buy his own boat
         and that that's the price of the downpayment. Joe asks, "And what do
         you get?" Devlin replies, "Information."
             A man named Bill Malloy goes to the diner and tells Roger,
         "I saw your car outside. I've just heard that Burke Devlin is back
         in town!" Roger nonchantly answers, "So? 10 years is a long time."
         Malloy tells him he's surprised he's taking it so calmly. Roger
         replies, "I have more things to worry about than the movements of
         an ex-convict" Malloy remarks, "You must be a bigger man than
         I've thought. Or a bigger fool..."
            At the Blue Whale, Burke Devlin is sitting in the phone
         booth, talking to Wilbur Strake. He tells him that he's done a
         good job in his file on the Collins family and that he's going
         to give him a bonus. Devlin returns to his table and tells
         Haskell, "You're at Collinwood a lot. You must see things, hear
         things. All I want to know is what you see and hear." Haskell
         tells him he's not sure, that he'll have to think about it.
         Devlin asks him, "You ever hear of a place called Montevideo?
            It was in a filthy bar there that I started to hit it big. A
         stranger at a table offered me a proposition, just like I'm
         offering you one now. I didn't think, I just took it. That's what
         you should do." Bill Malloy shows up. He tells Haskell to leave.
         Haskell does. Malloy asks, "What did you want with the boy?"
         Devlin replies, "Oh, nothing. We were just having a friendly
         little chat." Malloy says, "Please, Devlin. That family's had
         nothing but trouble. Leave them alone." Devlin growls, "The way
         they left me alone?"
            At Collinwood, Carolyn, having shown Vickie part of the
         house, tells her, "That's enough for now. We'll continue the tour
         some other time." They go back to Vickie's room. Vickie notices
         that the letter which she had put into the desk drawer is now
         lying on the bed and asks, "What's that doing there? I'm sure
         I put it in the desk drawer..."

     Vicky is in her room reading. She hears a noise outside her room.
  She goes to the door and listens. She hears Roger and Elizabeth arguing
  outside. Elizabeth tells Roger, "What are you doing? Leave her alone!"
     Roger and Elizabeth go downstairs. Elizabeth, thinking Roger was going
  to go into Vickie's room to sexually harass her, tells him, "There'll be
  no repeat of what just happened or I'll have to ask you to leave this
  house!" He tells her what he was doing. He tells her that Burke Devlin's
  back, that he came back on the same train as Vickie, that she talked to
  him, that he just wanted to find out if Devlin said anything to her about
  what he's doing back. Elizabeth tells him not to worry, that it's been
  10 years and what happened between him and Burke is over and done, that
  Devlin's back for no other reason than Collinsport is his home. Carolyn,
  who's been eavesdropping, comes into the room and asks, "Who's trying to
  kill you, Uncle Roger? Is it Burke Devlin?" Roger asks her where she
  heard that name. Carolyn tells him Vickie told her about mentioning the
  name to him, and his strange reaction. Roger asks Carolyn to go get Miss
  Winters, saying he'd like to talk to her. Carolyn leaves to get Vickie.
     Vickie comes downstairs to the drawing room. She is asked about meeting
  Burke Devlin. She tells them she knows very little about him, that she
  didn't meet him on the train, that she only met him at the station and
  he gave her a ride into town. Roger asks to speak to Vickie alone.
  Elizabeth leaves. Roger accuses her of knowing more than she's saying
  and asks her to tell him the truth, saying it's important. Angered by
  this, Vickie storms out of the room and goes back upstairs.
     The clock in the foyer shows 2:00. Vickie is in her room sleeping.
  She is awakened by the sound of crying. She goes downstairs to
  investigate. She finds the drawing room doors closed. She knocks to
  see if anyone is inside. The crying stops. Getting no answer to her
  knocking, Vickie opens the drawing room doors and goes inside. The
  drawing room is empty. Vicky goes back out into the foyer and is startled
  to see a figure standing on the stair, but then sees it's just a little
  boy of about 6 or 7 years of age. She greets him, "Hello, David", for
  that is who it obviously is. He replies, "I HATE YOU!"
