Sam wants to save the soul he sold ten years ago. Liz (as well as I) grows impatient quickly. It was kinda fun, though, to listen to him talk about Paul wanting a portrait done.

We're back to Carolyn embarrassing herself. Yawn.

I don't think we got any further to anywhere in this episode.

The pen in a soap today would have a listening or tracking device in it. Though most of the scenes had merit, this episode just didn't grab me. It's probably just me.

Nice capture, MB. I forgot Joe took the office job. This was his promotion, correct?

This is a cross between a catchup, and a rinse and repeat episode. Again we get Roger and Liz's story (just more detail) and more of the same bullshit between Roger and Sam. And pretty much the same thing with Maggie and Sam.

I can't imagine why Sam has come to Collinwood. I'm sure Roger will be none too pleased when he learns of it.

I wonder if Frances Swain got chewed out by Dan Curtis for writing so many characters into one episode. It is a nice change of pace though.

Roger's stitches look much more authentic now. And I'm back to totally disliking Bill Malloy.

Nice sketch of Burke.

Poor Carolyn, foiled at every turn. Did you notice Suzy listening in? The Carolyn and Burke thing is getting back to being tiresome. No surprise, Carolyn driving a convertible though I might have expected something a bit more sporty - well, maybe for her 18th birthday. Burke really got Roger's goat. I think it's Roger who should move to California.

Sam talked way too much. They should have hired Robert H. Harris to replace Mark Allen.

OMGosh, Roger's stitches look like the skeleton of a small fish! I suppose it's another instance of exaggeration for the small screen. It looks totally fake on my big screen. Love seeing Roger panic, lol, as when Sam notes Devlin just pulled up the drive way. So, there's a driveway.

Sam and Roger's conversation was much more exciting (and interesting) than Sam and Burke's. I totally agree that it is foolish of Roger to come to Sam's place.

This is the episode that made me dislike the Bill Malloy character. I remembered it as soon as I heard him tell Burke that if he left town he would do his best to clear his name. As I recall, he gets really obnoxious from here on in. I don't know why I would be upset about that, I certainly shouldn't like Roger and feel bad for him (or Sam for that matter). And I like Burke. I guess it's hard to forget everything I already know.

It's the little things like Liz being worried about her employees losing there jobs due to modernization that make Liz my favorite character. I totally agree that Liz lit up like a Christmas tree when Ned called. I guess he is quite the business man. Liz is one or two steps ahead of Bill Malloy regarding Burke asking Ned to return to deal with him for her. And how about that long pause from Bennett? Maybe the longest in DS history, or does that honor go to Bathia Mapes, lol.

Roger threatens Sam and Sam threatens Roger (with the letter) so it looks like we have a stalemate. Bill Malloy wastes no time being obnoxious by just letting himself into Sam's. Good for us though as things are about to get desperate for Sam and Roger and exciting for us!

Middle of the road episode. I guess the biggest deal is Bill entering into the Burke/Roger war. He really gets the ball rolling when he singles out Roger to Burke as someone he has no intentions on protecting.

There's no denying Thayer's acting ability. What a presence, what a force. Vicki and Matthew in the basement - what a great scene thanks to Thayer. I loved everything about it dialogue wise. And any basement scene is always so atmospheric. I love that set and pretty much any scene shot therein.

Burke & Carolyn - What is there to say? At least Carolyn is approaching her conquest a bit more maturely (but still naively), making it less awkward to watch. Whatever the case, Carolyn seems very sure of herself. Good dialogue and acting. I guess now that Burke isn't an attempted murderer Carolyn feels he is fair game. I don't know if she should be considering Vicki. I think Vicki played down the romantic angle when she talked to Carolyn about her dinner with Burke but I thought that Burke made it obvious that he was interested in Vicki when Carolyn questioned him about it. All is fair in love and war.

Liz & Matthew & Vicki - Matthew comes off looking much better than Liz. Good gravy, Thayer elevates every scene he's in. Liz's explanation to Vicki makes the most sense if you don't believe in spooks. I'm thinking of all the folks who've had and or led horrible existences in Collinwood. So many could be the ghost behind the crying. I did think that Liz's concern over what Roger might have said about the crying was odd. As if it were another secret she did not want discovered. I wonder if Vicki is going to let it go after giving up the chance Liz gave her to go into the store room? And I thought it odd that Liz would seem so overly relieved that Vicki turned her down. Perhaps Liz locked the door without ever having gone in. So even she wouldn't know what condition to expect the room to be in.

Burke & Matthew - Not sure of the purpose of this scene. To establish Matthew as a killer? Thayer's Matthew certainly seems more so than George's.

Not a bad episode by any means. It certainly gives a first time viewer a lot to think about. With so many mentions of ghosts lately, I have a feeling the Old House debut must be right around the corner. With the dawn of a new day I am happy to have Liz's old 'do back! Hating Vicki's clothes lately.

They're using the same opening night shot of Collinwood lately, perhaps I spoke too soon of my appreciation for the variety of opening shots.

We're back to the fidgety Roger of episode one. He is really in a state. Threatening Sam & Vicky. I just can't think of him as a dangerous man but I guess I am supposed to.

I guess Sam hasn't anyone else but giving Maggie that letter is really not going to be good for her or him - it certainly won't get her off his back.

It looks like the clay pot by the drawing room phone has been moved to the opposite wall.

Well, if the crying is coming from the locked room in the cellar then it can't be Liz with the door being locked. I wonder just how many people are buried in there, lol.

Roger was hysterical (and HYSTERICAL) today! So over the top with the way he spoke to and treated Vicki (and she held her own against him). It was certainly fun to watch Louis go at it. Then the apology, which was hard to watch in some ways. His fear of Vicki going to Liz - I guess he is going on the assumption that Vicki overhead him talking to Sam. I did like the discussion about the crying. I liked the acting in that part of the apology scene. They sure are pushing ghosts lately.

Some great dialogue in this episode, most but not all coming from Roger.

Nice writeup, AD.

Liz is asking an awful lot of Vicki, in fact, she's asking a lot of everyone. She certainly has a lot of faith in fate. I'm glad she confronted David with the truth about his almost killing his father and his threats to Vicki.

Roger is a trip but because this is a soap I can totally relate to (and enjoy) his sarcasm. But in real life it would be totally unacceptable the way he talks to (and about) his son. Louie went all out in his scene with Bennett ranting and raving. I guess Roger has a lot to be upset about especially after talking to Sam. Surely he must feel the noose tightening. In any other soap (especially today) someone would have overheard Roger and Sam in the diner - really stupid move on Roger's part.

David Ford is still reading Mark Allen's lines and the delivery sounds preposterous coming out of his mouth. I can't remember if we know what Sam's sin against Burke is.

Oh, and has anyone noticed the foyer table keeps getting moved? In some episodes it's practically in front of the drawing room doors and in others it is closer to the door under the landing? I thought I was crazy at first (thinking it was the camera angle) but now I am sure of it.
