“I know what you were planning to do there. I know what you are.”
Today’s episode begins with Vicki standing at the drawing room windows, looking aimlessly at the sunset. There’s a distressingly large number of episodes that start with Vicki staring into space, in one direction or another. It’s like nobody’s ever told her that television exists.
Julia strolls in, and Vicki mentions that last night she dreamt that someone was in her room. When she woke up, her music box was playing.

“I haven’t seen him around, but I don’t know that he’s gone.”
We’re back at the Blue Whale today, and we’ll be here for the whole episode, so I hope you have a designated driver. The story plays out in real time, so it’s like 24 but without the action or suspense. But there is a mystery, and the question on everyone’s lips is: “Where’s Willie?”
