In Bangor, Burke meets with Bronson. Burke reminds Bronson that the Collins family can't connect them. Bronson hands over financial papers on the Collins family, including the debt structure.
Vicki and Carolyn search the house for David. Vicki heard a noise behind the locked door. Elizabeth comes out of the closed wing. In Vicki's room, Carolyn uses another key to open Vicki's dresser. Carolyn picks up a copy of the magazine that David had been reading and is shocked to find an article on disassembling a master brake cylinder.
Burke finishes the paperwork, and says that it doesn't go far enough. Bronson explains that they can buy up the notes and call them in. Burke tells Bronson he wants to hit the Collins family so hard they'll wish they never heard of him. Burke asks about the information on the rival cannery in town, and they discover it's not in the paperwork. It's possible Bronson's secretary mailed it to Devlin. Burke is not happy with the thought of something coming to him that will connect him with Bronson.
Liz calls Roger to tell him David is missing, but does not mention the valve. Carolyn asks why, and Liz says she needs to be sure.
Burke calls the hotel to see if any mail has arrived for him. It hadn't, but the sheriff had served a search warrant. And that a little boy was caught trying to sneak into his room.
John: I will assume that Carolyn's smiling while describing David tampering with the car was unintentional.
John: Burke's plans to get back at the Collins family are now pretty clear, although I don't get why he's so worried about anyone finding a link between he and Bronson. It's not that Bronson is doing anything illegal.
Christine: Perhaps he's trying to keep it under wraps until he's completely screwed over the Collins family, just in case they might be able to do something to prevent him if they knew what he was up to. As he tells Bronson, "when you're planning a surprise party, it spoils the fun if the guests know about it in advance."
Christine: I guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow. They seem to find a way to keep us watching.
