In his bed, David tosses and turns as he hears his mother call to him.
The next morning, Vicki wakes David at 10:30. He said he dreamed that he kept hearing his mother's voice, and there was fire all around.
Roger comes in and tells David to get dressed, as he's taking him to see his mother. David says no, and Roger threatens to beat him. David says he's not going near his mother, and that Roger can't make him. He leaves, and Vicki says she thinks David fears rejection from his mother. Vicki offers to help connect David and his mother. She then asks Roger if there was trouble last night, as she saw the sheriff's car last night. Roger tells her of the reported fire in Phoenix.
Laura sits by the fire when there's a knock at the door. Vicki brought Laura breakfast. Laura asks if David is ready to see her. Vicki explains how often David spoke of her before her return. She thinks David's just going through a phase. Laura asks Vicki to tell her all about David. Laura asks Vicki if she could collect a clipping of David's hair for her locket. Vicki suggests that Laura meet her and David by the greenhouse when they're out for their afternoon walk. Laura agrees, but says she wants to meet them atop Widow's Hill.
John: Roger verbalizes what we've been speculating about for some time now. Is David his son?
Christine: She certainly didn't deny the claim after he made it.
John: Laura tells Vicki how she loves a nice fire. Yeah, we get it. Note that Vicki once again fails to mention David's evil deeds to Laura.
Christine: We get it, but when will the rest of the characters at Collinwood start adding up the clues? The body burned in the fire in her apartment in Phoenix along with her constant cozying up to the fire, the painting of her in fire, and David's dreams of her in fire should not go unnoticed for long.
John: Yes, this episode ends with a literal cliffhanger.
