 It's interesting concept, cause Catherine has until now been portrayed 
as a basically EVIL character, similar to BENJAMIN who has been transformed
into GOOD, and natcherly Catherines husband PETE has been GOOD all along,
not to mention a good chess player (in the script at any rate).  So are
the trophyies on the wall Petes, Andrews, or Catherines?  I suspect that
they are Andrews, as he is the evilest one in the house... isn't he?
Eckhardts ex-partner, back from the DEAD... [what a long strange trip it's
Andrew spent the year off dead for tax purposes at PEARL LAKE, didn't he?

I wonder if he hung out at the White Lodge or the Black Lodge...!
