My name is Victoria Winters. A secret from the past can exert a strong control over a woman. It can force her to do things that otherwise might be considered impossible. It can cause a woman to make the most difficult decision of her existence.

Jason remarks, "You look surprised, Liz". He continues, "But when you think about it, you'll see it's the only solution to our problems". Elizabeth remarks, "It's absurd! I've never appreciated your sense of humor before, Jason..." Jason replies, "I'm serious". Elizabeth replies, "That's impossible! Marrying you is inconceivable! I'd die before I'd marry you! I detest you!" Jason asks, "You detest the man who pulled you through the worst period of your life?" He threatens to tell what he knows, resulting in, "An investigation, a trial, scandal, and prison". He says, "I see a night 18 years ago, Paul Stoddard lying dead in this very room..." But Elizabeth tells him, "I won't do it! You've pushed me too far! I won't do it!" Jason tells her, "Well then, you have only have one path open, Liz". He goes over to the phone, picks up the receiver, and says, "It's justice time, Liz, time for you to call the sheriff and tell him all about it. Come on, Liz, call the sheriff and tell him. You have a choice, Liz. Marry me or call the sheriff.". Elizabeth goes over, takes the phone and starts dialing, but Jason suddenly stops her. Elizabeth asks, "What's the matter? Did I call your bluff?" Jason replies, "There's one thing you haven't thought about. It'll be quite a shock to Carolyn when she sees the police arresting you. Don't you think you should talk to her about it first? It's time to tell her. You can tell her, can't you?" Elizabeth replies, "I'd rather do anything than marry you!" Jason remarks, "I'll get her. It'll be very interesting for her to hear the details of her father's murder!" and leaves the room.

Jason goes to the study where Carolyn is reading a book and tells her, "Your mother sent me here to fetch you. She wants to speak with you". He asks, "Could I have few words with you before you see her?" He tells her, "Be diplomatic. You're mother's a bit on edge about what she's going to talk to you about. It might be necessary for you to in the course of your conversation to differentiate between what is real and what is imaginary".

Carolyn goes to the drawing room and tells Elizabeth, "Jason said you wanted to talk to me". Elizabeth replies, "Yes". Carolyn asks, "About what?" Elizabeth replies, "It's something I've put off for much too long. I have to tell you about my life, to explain why I have lived the way I have". Carolyn remarks, "You sound like you're about to make a confession". Elizabeth tells her, "Exactly, that's what it is, a confession. I've got to tell you some things I've done". Carolyn asks, "What things?" Elizabeth replies, "Before I can tell you, I've got to tell you about your father first. He never really loved me. He never really loved anyone. He never loved you, either. He never wanted you. He wanted his freedom. He was a cruel man, a terrible man." Carolyn gets very upset at this and runs out of the room, refusing to listen further.

Carolyn runs back into the study. Jason asks, "Carolyn? I can see it went badly". Carolyn replies, "It did". Jason asks, "Did she tell you about your father?" Carolyn replies, "Yes. She told me he was a terrible person". Jason asks, "Is that all?" Carolyn replies, "Yes. I didn't let her finish". Carolyn, puzzled about the discrepancies between Elizabeth's description of her father as a terrible man and Jason' glowing description of him, asks, "Did my father ever talk about me?" Jason replies, "Incessantly. He couldn't shut up. He had a photograph of you in his wallet, and he would show it to anyone who would look..." Carolyn asks, "Then you would say he loved me?" Jason assures, "More than anything in the world".

Jason goes back to the drawing room. Elizabeth chokes, "I couldn't. She wouldn't listen". Jason tells her, "Well, Liz, what next?" Elizabeth replies, "I don't know". Jason tells her, "Then I'll tell you. We'll make preparations for the future". Elizabeth begs, "I'll need some time". Jason replies, "I'll give you time. After all, there are certain legal matters to get out of the way. I can give you some time. But not much..."

Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins

John Karlen as Willie Loomis
Robert Gerringer as Dr. Woodard
Alexandra Moltke as Victoria Winters

My name is Victoria Winters. Streaks of red, the color of blood, wash the sky that set the western limits of Collinwood. It is as though the day were dying a horrible death, and the peace the sunset usually promises has failed to penetrate the darkness... the fear that the day could not disperse remains... an already mounting terror continues... unchecked.

At the old house, Barnabas tells Willie, "I am a Collins and that means I'm a man of my word". He orders Willie to let Dr. Woodard take a blood sample. Willie asks, "Why? You have as much to lose as I do!" But Barnabas, instead of answering, replies, "You have to calm your nerves, Willie. The doctor will be here presently". Willie whines, "No, please, no".

Burke and Dr. Woodard are in Woodard's office, now cleaned up. Burke asks Woodard, "Are you sure Willie is going to let you take a sample?" Woodard replies, "Yes. Barnabas promised he would. And if he doesn't, I could get a court order to force him to. He could be harboring a dangerous disease. What I hope to find out is what this is, where and how he got it". Burke asks, "Could this have been caused by a wild animal?" Woodard asks, "Why do you say that?" Burke replies, "When Vicki was staying with Maggie, she said she heard dogs outside, and then there are those terrible gashes". Woodard replies, "No, I don't think it was an animal. Besides, it wasn't a dog that broke into my office and stole those samples. It was a man". Burke suggests, "Maybe it was Willie. Why doesn't he want you to take those samples?" Woodard replies that he doubts it's Willie, explaining, "Lots of people are squeamish. Anyway, Willie doesn't have enough strength to have bent those bars, not even in a crazy state". Burke tells Woodard, "Vicki and I are going to be having drinks at the Blue Whale later". He asks Woodard to drop by if he learns anything new.

Dr. Woodard goes to the Old House. Barnabas gives him a glass of wine, in spite of Woodard's protestations that this is a professional visit, then calls Willie down. Willie comes down. He asks Barnabas, "Do I have to?" Barnabas replies, "Look at it this way. It might help Maggie Evans, and it might help YOU. You might have some...". He pauses, then concludes, "...tragic malady". Willie is still reluctant. Woodard, misinterpreting Willie's reluctance, promises, "It won't hurt. I'm only going to take a little blood". Barnabas starts to wax poetic about how blood is the life fluid, and how he can understand how some people can be frightened by even the loss of a little. Dr. Woodard takes the blood sample from Willie. He congratulates Barnabas on his excellent wine. He thanks Willie, adding, "I understand all about your fears". Willie exclaims, "No you don't!", but Barnabas dismisses him, "That'll be all, Willie", and Willie leaves. Woodard remarks, "If these slides show the same thing Maggie's did, then I'll have to come back to investigate further". They talk about the slides. Woodard remarks that slides usually look like "delicate flowers on glass, remarking, "Some of the most terrible malignancies have also been some of the most beautiful things I've ever seen". Barnabas remarks, "You should be careful. I hear a madman broke into your office". They discuss this. Woodard remarks, "You sound like you have sympathy for this madman". Barnabas replies, "No. I loathe him. I loathe him very deeply".

Vicki and Burke are at the Blue Whale. Burke tries to get Vicki to dance, but Vicki isn't in the mood to. She tells him she just wants to sit at the table. Burke remarks, "We have the dance floor all to ourselves". Vicki says, "Everyone's staying home because of the madman". Burke tells Vicki, "You agreed to forget about that tonight". Finally, he manages to convince her to dance, but Vicki apparently doesn't feel like it and asks him to take her home. Burke tells her he can't because Dr. Woodard promised to drop by. Suddenly, Vicki exclaims, "What's that?" Burke asks, "What is it?" Vicki asks, "Listen! Didn't you hear anything? In the distance, dogs howling" Burke assures her it's nothing, saying, "There are always dogs howling at the farms outside of town". Burke tells Vicki he's going to play some "soft and soothing" music on the jukebox. He goes to the jukebox and puts in a coin, then comes back and dances with Vicki. There's a LOUD dog howl, clearly audible to both Vicki and Burke. Burke assures Vicki," It's just an old mutt howling. Relax".

Woodard is in his office looking at a slide through a microscope. Outside, a dog howls.

At the old house, Willie, fearing what Woodard might see in his blood samples, begs Barnabas, "Barnabas, please let me go away, far away, please! They're going to get me! The doctor's going to look at that slide, and you know what he's going to see! They'll come to get me! If they do, what are you going to tell them?" Barnabas replies, "Nothing. Absolutely nothing". He tells Willie, "You may have betrayed me". Still angry about this, he slaps him, knocking him to the ground, then continues, "But I will not betray you". Willie asks, "If you're so worried, why did you let him take my blood?" Willie sees that Barnabas is holding something in his hand and looking at it. He asks, "What are you looking at?" Barnabas replies, "A delicate flower painted on a sheet of glass". Willie sees that it's a slide and exclaims, "You switched the slides!" Barnabas replies that he has, reminding Willie that he's recently made a visit to the doctor's office where he procured some slides. He tells Willie, "The doctor won't find anything of any importance in the slide he has".

The doctor has joined Vicki and Burke at the Blue Whale. Burke asks, "You didn't find anything?" Woodard replies, "Not a thing". Burke disappointedly remarks, "Another dead end". Woodard moans, "I'll never see again what I saw in Maggie's blood. There was something terrible going on there. There was a substance in there, a substance that should have been rejected, but Maggie's blood wasn't rejecting it. It was as if there was some sort of unholy union going on in Maggie's blood". Vicki asks, "With what?" Woodard replies, "Something completely foreign. But Maggie's blood seemed to be accepting it. What it was, we'll never know now". Outside, dogs continue to howl...

My name is Victoria Winters. Collinwood in the morning sunlight appears to be serene and peaceful. But inside the great house, there are those who cannot know serenity, who must be denied peace because they harbor dangerous and frightening secrets... One woman in particular must endure a life of torment because she harbors a secret that could destroy her.

It is morning. There's a knock at the front door of Collinwood. Elizabeth answers. It's Richard Garner, Elizabeth's lawyer. Carolyn lets him in, remarking, "I didn't know you were coming here, Mr. Garner". Garner replies, "I didn't either until I got your mother's call. What's the emergency, Liz?" Elizabeth tells him, "Let's go into the drawing room". After they do so, Vicki remarks, "I wonder what the emergency at the cannery is". Carolyn replies, "I don't think it's at the cannery. Mother was up all night last night. I heard my mother pacing up and down. Something's wrong. I think we're all sitting on a keg of dynamite, and any moment, it's going to explode..."

Inside the drawing room, Garner remarks, "I don't understand. I get a call from you telling me to drop everything and come over, now you hem and haw." Elizabeth asks Garner, "I'd like your advice on some legal matters. I'm still married legally, aren't I?" Garner replies that she is. Elizabeth tells him she'd like to start divorce proceedings and asks him if there'll be any problems. Garner replies that there won't be, that no judge will deny a divorce to a woman who's husband abandoned her 18 years ago. Elizabeth asks, "Will Paul have to be served the papers?" Garner replies, "No. All you have to do is put some public notices in some newspapers. Why are you finally getting a divorce after all these years?". Elizabeth replies, "I just wanted to break off all ties with Paul". Garner remarks, "Oh, for a moment there I thought you were thinking of getting married again". Elizabeth replies, "Of course not. Who would I marry?" At that moment, the doors open and Jason McGuire comes in. Elizabeth glares at him and asks, "Didn't you see that the doors were closed?" Jason apologizes. Elizabeth and Garner finish talking. Garner tells Elizabeth, "I'll start drawing up those divorce papers immediately" and leaves. Jason remarks, "Ah, Liz. So you've decided to start the ball rolling". Elizabeth snaps, "I haven't decided to do anything!" Jason calmly says, "Yes you have. You've decided to get a divorce and marry me". He adds, "We're going to get married, Liz, and we're going to be happy, very happy".

Elizabeth is in the drawing room alone, sitting by the fireplace. Roger comes in and asks, "Join me for a glass of brandy?" She replies, "Yes". After pouring the drinks, he remarks, "I've earned my pay at the office today. The secretaries are staying home because of the attacks. We're terribly understaffed. Even I had to help with the clerical work. Everyone did. Everyone except your friend Jason McGuire, that is. He didn't even show up today". Elizabeth says, "He has a bit of a cold today". Roger continues, "Even when he does show up, he's about as helpful as David would be..." Elizabeth snaps, "I don't want to go into this any further!" She asks if there's been any word on Maggie. Roger replies that there hasn't. Elizabeth tells him, "Roger, there's something I have to tell you. I've just seen Richard Garner. I'm going through with the divorce". Roger replies, "Marvelous! You should've done that years ago! You'll be free and clear of that scoundrel if he ever shows up again!" Elizabeth mumbles, "I doubt he ever will". Roger remarks, "Neither of us has had any luck in marriage. Maybe we just weren't meant to be married". Elizabeth replies, "I wouldn't say that. I might consider marriage again if I met the right man". Roger asks, "Who would you marry? You haven't seen anyone outside of this family for years, by your own choice". Elizabeth replies, "I was talking hypothetically". Roger asks, "You're hinting at something, are you?" Elizabeth denies that she is. Jason comes into the drawing room and says, "Hello". Seeing that Roger has a glass of brandy, he asks "Could I have a little sip of that to help my cold?" Roger complains, "You act as if you were part of the family. Liz may consider you part of the family, but I certainly don't" Jason replies, "Soon, you will. Ask Liz". Roger asks, "Liz, what does he mean?", but Elizabeth abruptly excuses herself, saying, "I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about, and I have to see Mrs. Johnson about dinner" and leaves. Outside in the foyer, she pauses and grabs the side table for support, a look of anguish on her face.

Carolyn tells Vicki she has to go into town and asks her to accompany her, explaining that she's afraid to go alone because of the attacks. She and Vicki talk about how Maggie's disappearance has caused everyone to be afraid. Roger comes in and tells Carolyn, "I've got news for you. Either your mother has taken leave of her senses or I have. She saw Richard Garner today. She's started divorce proceedings". Carolyn remarks, "Good". Roger continues, "It's her motives that worry me. She hinted that she's thinking of getting married again. I could scarcely believe it!". Carolyn asks, "But with who?" Roger replies, "Who's the only man she's had contact with?" Carolyn exclaims, "Jason McGuire!" Roger tells her, "He came into the room while we were talking and hinted that very soon he would be part of the family, and Liz didn't contradict him". Carolyn exclaims, "My mother wouldn't think of marrying that man unless he had some kind of hold on her!" Roger remarks, "He snaps his fingers and she jumps". Carolyn moans, "He must have some sort of hold on her, but what? I can't let it happen, I can't! I've got to find out what he has on her and expose him!" Roger remarks that he thinks it has something to do with the locked room downstairs. Carolyn tells him she tried to find the key to that room, but couldn't. Roger tells her, "It's hanging on a chain around her neck. When she came back from the hospital, that's the first thing she wanted". Carolyn announces, "I'm going to get that key from mother! I'm going to find out what's in that room. I've got to!"

Elizabeth and Jason are in the drawing room arguing. Carolyn comes in and asks Elizabeth, "Mother, please give me the key to the locked room in the basement. I want that key, please". Elizabeth lies, "I don't know where it is". Carolyn says, "I do. It's on that chain around your neck. I can see it. Mother, please give it to me. I know this man has some sort of hold on you and I've got to find out what it is!" Elizabeth explodes, "That's ridiculous!" Carolyn continues, "Let me see what's behind that door". Elizabeth tells her, "I've already told you what's there. Some things that belonged to your father". Carolyn insists, "Will you give me the key?". Elizabeth refuses, saying, "They're sad memories". Carolyn, frustrated, vows, "If you don't give me the key, I'm going to break in there!" Elizabeth screams, "Leave me alone, Carolyn, I beg of you, leave me alone!" and runs off. Jason asks, "Carolyn, why do you make such trouble for your poor mother?" Carolyn replies, "You're her only trouble". Jason says, "Carolyn, I think you should get into that room". Carolyn asks, "Why?" Jason replies, "So you'll see I'm not the monster you think I am" and promised to the key for her. Carolyn, not believing him, vows, "I won't rest until I see you out of this house!" Jason replies, "We'll see about that, dear girl, we'll see about that!"

My name is Victoria Winters. When hope is gone, there is nothing, and the world becomes an empty void. For one man, the setting sun indicates the beginning of a long, lonely night, haunted by thoughts of his missing daughter.

Sam is at the Evans Cottage. He is obviously very depressed. He putters around, trying to get his mind off Maggie, but it doesn't work. There's a knock at the door. Sam answers. It's Sheriff Patterson. Sam asks, "Any news?" Patterson replies, "No. Sorry". Sam asks, "How do things stand?" Patterson tells him, "Very still. Even the FBI can't find anything". He pauses, then tells Sam, "We're beginning to think Maggie might be dead". Sam replies, "I can't accept that! I don't think I can ever accept that!" The sheriff promises, "We'll keep going until we do find something". There's a knock at the door. It's Burke. He comes in and asks the sheriff, "Any news?" The sheriff replies, "No, everything's quiet". Burke asks, "Nothing since the last time I talked to you?" The sheriff replies, "No, nothing". He tells Sam, "I wish I could've brought good news. Maybe next time" and leaves. Sam moans, "The police think she's dead!". Burke tries to reassure Sam, "Sam, you can't think that way! She'll be found. I know she will". He asks, "Who's been cooking for you, Sam? How about you coming with me and letting me buy you a good dinner tonight - a couple of steaks, some drinks?" Sam declines, saying, "I'm not hungry". Burke tells him, "Sam, you've got to take care of yourself! Have you been doing any work lately?" Sam replies that he hasn't, that he just can't keep his mind on it. Burke tells him that Maggie wouldn't want him moping around like this. Sam agrees, and tells Burke he'll try to work on the portrait of Barnabas Collins, which is almost finished. They both leave. As Sam get to the front door, he doubles back to get a curved, carved, meerschaum pipe lying on a table, putting it in his mouth.

There's a knock at the door of the old house. Willie answers. It's Sam Evans. Sam asks, "Is Mr. Collins at home?" Willie replies that he isn't. Sam tells him, "That doesn't matter. I came here to see the portrait. I'd like to do some work on it". Willie replies, "You can't. There are a lot of repairs going on. They'll get in the way". Sam asks, "Well, can I come in and look at it?" Willie refuses to let him. Sam asks, "I just want to look at it. It's almost finished". Willie reiterates, "You can't do it here!" Sam tells him, "I don't have to do it here. I can take it home and do it there". Willie lets him in to take the painting. Sam goes in. Putting his pipe on a table to free his hands, he takes the painting. Willie takes the easel. They go outside.

Maggie comes downstairs and wanders around. She sees Sam's pipe lying on the table, takes it, and goes back upstairs. Sam and Willie come back inside. Sam remarks, "My pipe. I must've left it in here. I know I had it with me when I came here". He looks around but doesn't see it anywhere. He tells Willie, "If you find it, can you keep it for me? I've had that pipe for a long time. It's a good old friend". Willie promises to do so. Sam leaves.

Maggie comes downstairs again. Willie sees her and tells her, "Hey! You're not supposed to come down here unless you're told to!" Maggie replies, "I wanted to come down". Willie asks, "Were you down here a few minutes ago?" Maggie does not answer, replying instead "Don't want to be up there... Who am I?" Willie tells her, "You're Josette". Maggie replies, Josette. Am I Josette? I keep thinking that I'm someone else". Willie tells her, "You're Josette Collins and this is your house!" Maggie insists, "I can't be Josette Collins. I'm someone else". Willie tells her, "You'd better go back upstairs. Barnabas will be here soon". Maggie gasps, "Barnabas? Barnabas Collins? Barnabas?! Barnabas!?", a look of pure terror on her face. She runs upstairs.

Willie goes down to the cellar. He walks up to a coffin lying in the middle of the floor. The coffin opens. Lying inside is Barnabas, who has opened it. Seeing Willie there, he asks, "What is it, Willie? Come closer, Willie". Willie does. Barnabas grabs him by the throat and ask, "What do you want to tell me?" Willie chokes out, "Sam Evans was here..." and tells him what happened. Barnabas asks, "Did he see anything?" Willie replies, "No, nothing". Barnabas gets out of the coffin and slaps Willie hard, knocking him to the ground. He shouts at him, "Fool! You can't take chances like that! You know you are never to let anyone in during the day! You know how vulnerable I am!" He adds, "You must never think of taking advantage of that fact to betray me, Willie. You will never escape from me, never!" Willie meekly replies, "I know that". Barnabas says, "Then we have nothing to worry about".

Maggie comes downstairs again, holding Sam's pipe in her hands. She thinks to herself, "I'm someone else. I'm someone else". She looks at the pipe and says, "I know this. I know what this is. It belongs to someone, someone I've got to find. I've got to take it to someone, I've got to take it there".

At the Evan's cottage, Sam is working on the portrait. There's a knock at the door. It's Burke. He comes in, holding a brown paper bag. He sees Sam working on the portrait and remarks, "Ah, Sam. I see you've taken my advice". Sam replies that he has. Burke asks Sam, "Have you eaten yet?" Sam admits that he hasn't. Burke tells Sam, "I'm going to see that you have good dinner one way or another. I have a great sandwich here for you. How about a ham and swiss? I could've bought you tuna fish..." Sam tells him, "No, that'll be fine". They look at the painting and discuss it. Sam tells Burke, "I just can't get the character right. No matter how many times I do the eyes, they just turn out cold..."

At the old house, Barnabas tells Willie, "Keep an eye out for David. He likes to come here. How's Josette?". Willie tells him, "She was down here". Barnabas tells him, "Keep her locked upstairs in the future". Willie tells Barnabas, "She keeps asking who she is. I tell her she's Josette. Sometimes she believes me, sometimes she doesn't". Barnabas orders, "Bring her to me, now". Willie goes upstairs. Suddenly, Barnabas hears Willie shout, "Josette! Josette! Josette! Where are you?" Barnabas shouts, "What's the matter?" Willie comes back downstairs and tells Barnabas, "She's not up there! She must've gotten out!"

At the Evans Cottage, Sam continues to try to work on the painting. Burke goes into the kitchen to make some coffee. Maggie appears outside the bay window, but Sam, who's looking at the painting, doesn't see her. Sam finally gives up working on the eyes, saying, "It's no good. Maybe next time Barnabas Collins comes for a sitting I'll get them". He glances up and is startled to see Maggie looking at him through the window. He screams, "Maggie! Maggie!" and runs out the door. Burke, hearing Sam's shouts, runs into the living room and, seeing Sam running out, goes after him. But when Sam gets to the spot where Maggie was, he finds nothing. He tells Burke, "She was standing right there! Maggie! Maggie!"

My name is Victoria Winters. A stillness hovers over Collinwood tonight, but there is no peace in the silence, for it is the silence that precedes a great storm... peace that holds a promise of terror. Far away from Collinwood, one man knew a moment of hope on this night only to have that hope withdrawn... and despair and further confusion follow in its wake.

Sam and Burke are back inside the Evan Cottage. Sam tells Burke, "I saw her, Burke. She was standing there, right outside that window". Burke tells him, "Don't worry. The sheriff will be here in a few minutes."

Meanwhile, Maggie is wandering around in the Eagle Hill Cemetery. A dogs howls. Barnabas appears. He opens his arm in welcome. Maggie goes to him. But instead of embracing her, Barnabas grabs her by the throat.

At the Evans cottage, Sam is pacing around. He starts for the door. Burke asks, "Where are you going?" Sam replies, "Out". Burke reminds him, "The sheriff is coming in a few minutes". Sam replies, "I just can't stay here! I've got to go out and look for her". There's a knock at the door. It's the sheriff. He comes in and tells Sam, "I've got every available man looking for her". He asks, "What happened, exactly?" Sam tells him. The sheriff asks how Maggie looked. Sam replies, "Dazed. Pale". The sheriff asks, "Was she still wearing the nightgown she was wearing when she was taken?" Sam replies, "No. She was wearing a flowing white dress. It looked like something from another century". The sheriff tells Sam, "I'm going to have to ask you a question I'm afraid you're not going to like. Had you been drinking before you saw Maggie?" Sam angrily replies, "NO! What I saw didn't come out of a bottle! She was standing right there!"

Barnabas takes Maggie to the Collins family crypt. He opens the door to the secret room. He tell Maggie, "You must come with me. You tried to leave me. You must be punished. Josette, you must never leave me. You must stay with me always. You must never leave me like you did long ago". Maggie begs, "Don't, please!" Barnabas tells her, "Don't cry, Josette". Maggie asks, "Josette?" Barnabas tells her, "Yes. You are Josette. Say it". Maggie replies, "I am Josette". Barnabas tells her, "Yes, you are Josette and you will be my bride, the bride of Barnabas Collins, and we will be happy together through eternity, so very, very happy". He continues, "You must always believe that. You must never forget it. Perhaps there is no reason to punish you this time. But if you should ever try to leave me again.... We will leave this place and return to our house." Barnabas notices the pipe Maggie is holding in her hands and asks, "What's that? Give it to me" He takes it. Maggie screams, "NO! POP! POP!" Barnabas angrily shouts, "You must never say that name again! I must punish you!" Maggie faints. Barnabas takes her into the secret room, closing the door behind him.

Maggie awakens and asks, "Where...". Barnabas tells her, "This is where you will rest until I send for you". Maggie sees that she is lying in a coffin. She screams, "NO!!!!". Barnabas closes the lid...

It is dawn. Willie goes to the secret room and opens the coffin. He calls, "Josette? Josette, it's Willie. Can you hear me? I've come for you". Maggie answers weakly, "Willie?" Willie asks, "Do you recognize me? Do you know who I am?" Maggie repeats, "Willie". Willie tells her, "Yes. I've come to get you. There's nothing to be afraid of. Just do what I tell you to do, understand?"

Willie takes Maggie out of the secret room into the crypt. Maggie looks fearful. Willie tells her, "I told you not to be afraid. Barnabas is gone". Maggie looks relieved and asks, "Gone?" Willie tells her, "Come with me". They leave.

Willie takes Maggie back to the old house and up to Josette's room. He puts her in bed and tells her to rest. Maggie suddenly says, "I had a dream. A terrible dream. He was standing over me. That coffin..". Then she screams, "It wasn't a dream! I was in a coffin! I was in a coffin!" Willie calms her down, then tells her, "I'm trying to help you. Running away was a mistake, a bad mistake. If you ever try to run away again, he'll punish you. Do whatever he wants, be who he wants you to be. You are Josette Collins". Maggie insists, "No, I am not Josette Collins!" Willie tells her, "Don't ever let Barnabas hear you say that! Try to be Josette". Maggie repeats, "I can't!" Willie tells her, "You can!" He gives her the music box and tells her, "Listen, listen to the music. Hear the music? Listen to it and say to yourself over and over again, 'I am Josette Collins'".

There's a knock at the door of the Evan's Cottage. It's Sheriff Patterson. He tells Sam, "Bad news, Sam". Sam asks, "Didn't find anything?" The sheriff replies, "No, not a thing". Burke asks, "What are you going to do now?" Patterson replies, "Call off the men". Sam, shocked, asks, "You're not going to stop?" Patterson replies, "I have to. The men have searched every inch of ground near here." Sam asks, "How about Eagle Hill Cemetery?" Patterson replies, "Yes. We've searched there too. Nothing. We thought we saw someone in the mists, but it just turned out to be a dog - a big, ugly beast". The sheriff tells Sam, "I'm sorry, Sam, but I think you just imagined seeing Maggie". Sam turns to Burke and asks, "You believe me, don't you?" Burke, in a very sad voice, replies, "I'd like to believe you, Sam, but..."* Sam exclaims, "But you don't!" He sit down, then says, "You're right. I never saw her, except in my imagination..."

Maggie awakens. She opens the music box and listens to the music. She mutters, "Josette Collins... Josette Collins.." She get up, looks at the portrait, then says, more emphatically this time, "Josette Collins!" She sits down at the vanity. She takes the bottle of perfume, uncaps it, sniffs it, recaps it and puts it back down. She picks up a brush and starts brushing her hair. She looks in the mirror and exclaims, "No! Maggie! Maggie Evans! I'm Maggie!" She goes to the door and tries to open it, but finds it locked. She screams, "Willie! Pop! Joe! Somebody, somebody! Maggie! I'm Maggie Evans! I'm Maggie!"

This is the last we see of Mitchell Ryan as Burke Devlin. Due to alcohol problems, he had either shown up drunk or not shown up at all for several tapings, something the producers found unacceptable.

Alexandra Moltke as Victoria Winters

My name is Victoria Winters. Behind a locked door lies a terrible secret, a secret that if revealed would alter the lives of everyone at Collinwood. There is one who is determined to know that secret at all costs.

Roger and Carolyn are in the drawing room. Roger tells Carolyn, "I'll help you any way I can". Carolyn replies, "I'm going to do it after she goes to sleep!"

In the study, Jason tells Elizabeth, "I've got to have a little chat with you. Your daughter is determined to get into that room". Elizabeth replies, "I'll stop her immediately!", but Jason tells her, "No. Let's talk about it for a minute. She's determined to get into that room. What if she does? She'll find nothing and tell the others". Elizabeth replies, "I can't take the chance". Jason tells her, "I can guarantee you she won't find anything". Elizabeth asks, "How can you guarantee that?" Jason replies, "There's nothing to see unless you know where to look. Let me go check first to make sure. Give me the key". Elizabeth is still unsure and says, "I don't know...", but Jason tells her, "I tell you, Liz. This is the only way. Now give me the key". She gives it to him.

Jason comes out of the study into the foyer. He runs into Carolyn there. He tells her he's going to prove to her that he doesn't have any hold over her mother soon.

Jason goes down into the basement. Using the key given to him by Elizabeth, he unlocks the padlock and goes into the locked room. Lining the sides of the room are various boxes, chests and suitcases. Jason shines his flashlight on the floor and inspects it. He pulls a chain turning on a light, then gets on his hands and knees and inspects the floor some more. He then gets up and looks around. He opens a couple of suitcases and, finding nothing but old clothes, leaves.

Jason goes back to the study and tells Elizabeth, "Well! You can relax now! Everything is in order. Everything's all right. Everything's fine". Elizabeth tells him, "I can't go through with it..." Jason insists, "Everything's all right!" Finally, Elizabeth agrees, "I'll give the key to Carolyn right now", but Jason suggests, "No, let's go them one better. Give them a grand display. YOU take them into that basement and into that locked room!"

Carolyn, Vicki and Roger are in the drawing room. Carolyn asks Roger about the wide discrepancy between her mother's description of her father and Jason's. Roger tells her, "Jason McGuire is a contagious liar!" Carolyn, apparently wanting to believe Jason's glowing praise for her father, says, "But he DID know my father. Which one should I believe?" Roger tells her, "I wouldn't know. I was away at school most of the time you father was here". Vicki suggests, "Maybe your mother said those things about your father to you to justify the divorce". Carolyn remarks, "I wish she wouldn't go through with that". Roger tells her, "She has to. If she doesn't, Paul could show up here any day and demand his rights, and he'll have them if they're not divorced". Carolyn remarks that she thinks Jason's blackmailing her mother into marrying him, and vows, "I can't let that happen!" Jason and Elizabeth come into the room. Elizabeth announces, "I think it's about time that everything came out into the open". She tells Carolyn, "I'm going to give you this key to prove that Jason has no hold over me". She asks her, "Are you ready to go down?" Carolyn replies, rather meekly, "Yes". Elizabeth asks, "Are you ready to find whatever you may find?" Carolyn replies, "Yes". Elizabeth tells her, "Then I'll take you down!"

Everyone goes down into the basement. Elizabeth opens the lock, remarking, "This lock hasn't been opened in 18 years. After this, it probably won't be opened for another 18 years". She goes in and pulls the chain, turning on the light. The rest of the group comes in. Elizabeth announces, "Your wishes have come true. You have my permission to look around wherever you want". Roger and Carolyn start opening boxes and suitcases and look through them. They find nothing but old clothing and various personal possessions of Paul Stoddard. Roger announces, "Junk. Nothing but junk". Carolyn exclaims, "Jason is right! I apologize very deeply!" Roger tells Elizabeth, "Sorry to put you through this terrible intrusion". Everyone goes back upstairs except Jason and Elizabeth. Jason tells Elizabeth, "They're all together upstairs now. I think now will be the proper time to tell them about you and me..."

Roger, Carolyn and Vicki are in the drawing room. Roger and Carolyn are very remorseful. Roger remarks, "That was one of the worst moments of my life". Carolyn says, "I put her through something she didn't deserve!" Jason and Elizabeth come into the room. Jason announces, "Your mother has something to say, something I'm sure you'll all be delighted to hear". Carolyn asks, "What is it?" Elizabeth pauses. Jason prompts her, "Tell them, Liz". Elizabeth announces, "I've decided that I cannot go on living my life the way I've been living it." She pauses again. Jason tells her, "Go on, Liz". Elizabeth announces, "Jason and I are going to be married!". Everyone is shocked.

My name is Victoria Winters. The dawn has not yet come to Collinwood, and in the final hours of the night there are dreams that trouble sleep. But something worse than nightmare grips the final dark... a reality no dream could conjure, a terror in the heart of a young woman that seeks to stun the mind and take away forever even the memory of her name.

At the old house, Maggie is alone in Josette's room. Sitting at the vanity, she looks in the mirror and says, "Yes. Maggie, that's my name! I must remember that! I am Maggie Evans! I've got to remember that!" She seems to be coming out of the trance she's been in. Talking to the image in the mirror, she says, "You have a father. His name... Why can't I remember his name? My name is Maggie Evans. My father... Yes. Sam! Sam Evans! I must remember that! Never forget it, never! Maggie Evans! Maggie Evans!" Moving her hand, she accidentally opens the lid to the music box. It starts playing. Maggie says, "My name! I must remember my name! Josette Collins? Yes, my name is Josette Collins...NO! That's not my name! I must remember my name! Maggie! That's it! It's Maggie Evans!. I've got to remember that, no matter what! Maggie Evans! I am Maggie Evans! My name is..." She is interrupted by a knock at the door. Willie voice asks, "Josette?" Maggie tells him, "Come in". Willie opens the door, comes in and announces, "Mr. Collins wants to see you". Maggie tells Willie, "Tell him Josette will be down in a minute. I want to brush my hair first". Willie leaves. Josette mutters, "I remember now, no matter what, Mr. Collins!"

Downstairs, Barnabas asks Willie, "How did she seem?" Willie tells him, "She not only answered to the name 'Josette', she even called herself that". Maggie comes down. Barnabas tells Willie, "I believe you have some special work to do. I want you to complete it as soon as possible". Willie leaves. Barnabas tells Maggie, "I have a gift for you, a gift one of my ancestors gave to his bride. Now I shall give it to you, Josette". He opens a box revealing a beautiful diamond necklace. He gives her the necklace and tells her, "We will soon be joined for all eternity". Maggie asks, "When?" Barnabas replies, "Very, very soon". Maggie asks, "Today?" Barnabas replies, "Perhaps. But Willie must first finish the arrangements". He asks her to put on the necklace, but she tells him, "Not until I am your bride". He tells her to go to her room, saying, "Soon, I will send for you, and you will be wearing this. Goodbye, for now". Maggie turns to leave. Suddenly, Barnabas calls "Maggie!" Maggie turns around, and looking puzzled, asks, "What did you say?" Barnabas replies, "I was calling Maggie". Maggie replies, "Maggie? That sounds like a servant's name, but I know of no servant named 'Maggie'". Barnabas tells her, "Sorry, I was mistaken. Maggie was someone who used to be here, but is here no longer". Maggie asks, "Who was she?" Barnabas replies, "Someone of no importance. The name will never be mentioned again".

Maggie is in Josette's room. She thinks to herself, "It can't happen! It can't!" She hears a banging sound coming from below somewhere. She remember Barnabas' words to Willie, "I believe you have some special work to do. I want you to complete it as soon as possible", then his words to her, "Willie must first finish the arrangements". She leaves the room to investigate. In the living room, she finds that the hammering sound is coming from the cellar. She quietly goes down to look.

Willie and Barnabas are in the cellar. Willie is busy hammering something. Barnabas tells him, "Excellent work. You should be proud of yourself!" He tells Willie, "Now you know what to do just before the sun goes down, don't you?" Willie replies, "Yes. I am to put on the gown she is to wear and bring her down here to you". Barnabas tells him, "After tonight, there will be no chance of her remembering. She will be Josette, and Josette will be mine forever!" He looks at Willie's handiwork and asks him, "Almost finished? Most people can't see its beauty. Do you see it as beautiful?" Willie replies emphatically, "No!" The camera pulls back, revealing Willie's handiwork to be a coffin. Maggie, who has snuck down into the cellar and is hiding unnoticed in the shadows, sees it...

The sun has come up. Barnabas is no longer seen in the cellar. Willie finds Maggie's hiding place and exclaims, "What are you doing here?! You're supposed to be in your room!" Maggie announces, in a stern tone of voice someone would use to speak to a servant, "It's my house and I wanted to walk around". Willie, suspicious at Maggie's tone, asks, "Who are you? Really? Maggie Evans?"

Maggie admits that she remembers that she's Maggie Evans. She begs Willie to help her escape. Willie tells her he's going to take her back to her room. Maggie shows Willie the diamond necklace Barnabas had given her, telling him, "This is worth more than you've ever dreamed of having! It's yours, Willie, after I'm gone". Willie replies, "No, he'll kill me!", but Maggie tells him, "No! You'll be gone too! We'll both be gone. After he's killed, really killed!" Willie whines, "I can't!" Maggie replies, "I can! Wait for me upstairs!" The sound of a heart beating starts coming from the old coffin. Willie, frightened, tells Maggie, "I've got to bring you upstairs!" Maggie tells him, "No, you won't hear it much longer!" Maggie picks up some sort of sharp pick Willie has been using to make the other coffin and starts to open the old coffin. Willie shouts, "I can't let you do it! I have to protect him!" He grabs Maggie and disarms her, shouting, "I can't help it! I can't help it!"

Maggie is in Josette's room. She looks out the window and sees that the sun's just starting to touch the horizon. She opens the music box. It has no effect on her. She defiantly says, "Maggie Evans! I am Maggie Evans!" There's a knock at the door. Willie's voice asks, "Are you ready?" Maggie replies, "Come in". Willie opens the door and comes in. Willie tells her, "It's time to take you to him". Maggie protests, "It's not sunset yet". Willie replies, "Almost". Willy tries to apologize, "Sorry. There's nothing I can do. You'll understand after tonight". Maggie asks, "Nothing I can say, do?" Willie tells her, "Give in. It'll be easier".

Willie takes Maggie down to the cellar. He tells her, "The sun's about to come up. You're supposed to wait for him here". Maggie begs, "Don't go! Please don't leave me here alone!", but Willie explains, "I can't. No one is supposed to be here except you" and leaves. Maggie looks around and sees that the pick is still there. She picks it up. The heartbeat sounds starts coming from the coffin again. Maggie opens the coffin. Lying inside is Barnabas. Maggie raises the pick and prepares to stab downward when suddenly, Barnabas awakens, his eyes opening. Maggie gives a start and drops the pick. Barnabas sits up and bares his fangs menacingly...

My name is Victoria Winters. It is twilight, and a few fading rays of sunlight still cling to the walls of Collinwood. Not far away from the great house, the approach of nightfall strikes terror in the heart of one girl, for she either must submit to an unspeakable fate or kill--destroy in order not to be destroyed.

Barnabas comes out of his coffin and remarks, in a very sarcastic tone, "What are you doing with that tool? You must be careful. It's very sharp. You wouldn't want to hurt anyone with it. Perhaps you were TRYING to hurt someone. Perhaps you were trying to hurt ME!" Maggie lies, "No!" Barnabas continues, "Josette wouldn't hurt me, but Maggie Evans would!" Maggie tries to say, "No, I'm Josette...", but Barnabas doesn't believe her and continues, "You were trying to destroy me! You deserve to die!" Maggie screams, "NO!!" Willie comes running down, screams, "No, Barnabas!" and puts himself between Barnabas and Maggie. Barnabas tells him to get out of the way, but Willie refuses to do so. Barnabas threatens, "I'll kill you too!". Willie replies, "You can't. My friend Jason will come looking for me". Barnabas tells him, "I can cope with idiots". Willie still refuses to move out of the way, saying, "You'll have to kill me first!". They are interrupted by a pounding sound coming from upstairs. Willie shouts, "Listen! Barnabas! That pounding! It's coming from upstairs! Someone's at the front door! They might come in! I left it unlocked!" Barnabas snarls, "I told you to always keep that door locked!" Willie explains, "I was just going out when I heard her scream and ran down here!" Barnabas tells Willie, "Watch the girl. If she screams, I will kill you both! Understand?", and goes upstairs.

Barnabas goes upstairs and answers the door. It's Vicki. She remarks, "I was beginning to think no one was home". Barnabas lies, "I was upstairs resting". Vicki apologizes, "Sorry to disturb you, Mr. Collins, but Mrs. Stoddard sent me here with a message. The sheriff's out at Collinwood. He's put a curfew on the town. Mrs. Stoddard thought you should know". Barnabas asks, "Is it because of the attacks?" Vicki replies, "Yes, and Maggie Evans". Barnabas asks, "Any word on her?" Vicki replies, "No. No one has any idea where she could be. There hasn't been a clue". Barnabas remarks, "Maggie was a very nice girl". Vicki, somewhat upset, complains, "Everyone keeps using the past tense with Maggie as if she were dead! She might still be alive!" Barnabas says, "But if she were still alive, the police would have found her by now". Vicki replies, "Unless she were being held by the madman who did this".

Downstairs, Willie is holding his hand over Maggie's mouth. He tells her he'll remove his hand if she'll agree not to scream. She nods agreement. Willie removes his hand. Willie tells her he has a plan. He tells her that there's hope as soon as she's alive. He tells her to let him do the talking.

Upstairs, Vicki remarks, "I wish everyone would stop being so pessimistic about Maggie". She tells Barnabas, "Oh, Mrs. Stoddard was wondering why you haven't been dropping by lately". Barnabas tells her he's been busy. Vicki notices Josette's music box sitting on a table and asks, "What's that?" Barnabas tells her, "It's a music box. It's been in the family for generations. It still plays. Would you like to hear it?" He opens the lid. Vicki listens to the music and remarks, "Lovely. It reminds me of..." She pauses. Barnabas asks, "What?" Vicki thinks and replies, "The past! Of long, long ago..." Barnabas replies, "Yes it does..." Vicki tells him, "Sorry to get so romantic about the past..."

Downstairs, Maggie and Willie wait fearfully. There are footsteps on the stairs. Barnabas is coming back down. Willie reminds Maggie, "Remember. Let me do all the talking!" Barnabas comes back down and tells Maggie, "Well, Josette, have you been waiting for me patiently?" Willie tells him, "She didn't make a sound!" Barnabas continues, "Did you, Josette. But I mustn't call you by that name anymore. You aren't worthy of it. I will call you by the common name Maggie Evans when I kill you. It won't be an easy death. You will endure more pain that any human has ever endured. After I've kill you, your body will not only be lifeless, but bloodless!" Willie once again gets between Barnabas and Maggie. He tells Barnabas, "You'll have to kill me first!" Barnabas replies, "I might do just that. I don't need you anymore". Willie retorts, "You need someone to guard you during the day!" Barnabas tells him, "It'll be easy enough to find someone else". Willie says, "But it'll take time for you to find someone else. During that time, you'll be vulnerable!" Barnabas replies, "I'll take the chance". Willie tries another tack. He tells Barnabas, "You can't kill her! You've waited a long time for her. You wanted her as your bride! You got so close! Look at her, look how beautiful she is!" Barnabas looks at Maggie for awhile, then tells Willie, "I'm going to take her with me. You stay here". Barnabas drags Maggie away. Maggie screams, "NO! NO! NO!"

Barnabas drags Maggie to a room with an iron door with a barred metal window. He throws her in there and tells her, "This is where you'll wait until I come back for you. By then, I will have made my final decision!"

There is a knock at the door of Collinwood. Vicki answers. It's Barnabas. Vicki remarks, "Mr. Collins, I didn't expect to see you again so soon!" Barnabas asks, "Is Mrs. Stoddard in?" Vicki tells him, "She's upstairs resting. I'll get her", but Barnabas replies, "No, that won't be necessary. I wouldn't want to bother her. I just came here to give her a gift to make up for my being remiss in visiting her". Vicki tells him, "Oh, I'm sure she understands you're busy". Barnabas shows her the gift he's brought for Elizabeth. It's a handkerchief. He explains, "It belonged to Josette Collins. According to legend, it was given to her by the Queen of France". Vicki examines the handkerchief, entranced. She remarks, "I'm sure Mrs. Stoddard will be pleased with this. I know I'd be!" Vicki expresses a great interest in family heirlooms, things that have been passed down from generation to generation. Barnabas remarks, "Not everyone does". Vicki explains her interest in family histories by saying she herself is a foundling and has none. Barnabas tells her, "Give Mrs. Stoddard my gift. Oh, Miss Winters, you must come by my house sometime, especially if it's the past you're interested in. I could tell you some interesting stories about the past".

Barnabas returns to the cell in the basement of the old house and tells Maggie, "I have made my decision". Maggie asks, "What is it?" Barnabas replies, "I will kill you." Maggie replies, "Go ahead!" Barnabas tells her, "I will not kill you only when you come to me begging to be Josette Collins". He tells her he will keep her locked in the cell until she does...

My name is Victoria Winters. There has been an announcement at Collinwood, an announcement that has shocked all those who live here, and filled them with disbelief. But there is one who will not accept this news, and is determined to do something about it.

In the drawing room at Collinwood, Elizabeth is talking on the phone. Carolyn comes into the room. Elizabeth finishes her telephone conversation, "I know there won't be anyone contesting the divorce. No one's seen Paul Stoddard in the 18 years since he left... I know I've waited 18 years for this, but I want it done immediately!" Elizabeth hangs up. Carolyn caustically remarks, "You're in a real rush. You're the very picture of the impatient bride!" Elizabeth gets upset and asks, "Why are you doing this to me?" Carolyn retorts, "Why are you doing this to yourself? Why are you marrying that man?" Elizabeth replies, "I'm marrying Jason McGuire and there's nothing you or anyone else can do about it!" Carolyn vows, "I'll do something to stop you!" Elizabeth asks, "What?" Carolyn replies, "I don't know, but I'll think of something!" Elizabeth complains, "No one seems to understand that I have the right to live my life as I wish!" Carolyn replies, "Yes, but why him?" Elizabeth replies, "He's the man I choose". Carolyn remarks, "It looks more like he chose you. I think he's forcing you into this!" Elizabeth denies this, saying, "I'm marrying him of my own free will!" Carolyn doesn't believe this and says, "I know you too well to believe that. There must be some other reason, a reason I intend to find!". Elizabeth retorts, "There is no other reason. You poked around downstairs and found nothing but 18 years of dust!" Carolyn apologizes, "I'm sorry for putting you through that..." Elizabeth asks, "Why do you hate Jason so much?" Carolyn replies, "He's sly and deceitful". She adds, "And one more thing. I've never seen you two display any sort of emotion towards one another. Marriage is a special institution, meant for people who have very special emotions toward each other! One more question! Do you love him?" Elizabeth doesn't reply. Carolyn says, "If you don't answer that, I'll have to conclude you're being forced to marry him." Elizabeth shouts, "Yes! Yes! I love him!" Carolyn replies, "I don't believe you!" Elizabeth says, "I'm tired of everyone trying to tell me how to live my life! I don't see you doing anything with YOUR life!" This really upsets Carolyn. She shouts, "I'll DO something about my life! You can bet on it!"

Roger and Vicki are in the study discussing David's progress. Roger is puzzled, "Why should David be doing so poorly in history when he is doing so well in everything else?" Vicki explain to him that most boys David's age don't do very well in history. Carolyn comes into the room, obviously very distressed. Vicki asks, "What's the matter, Carolyn?" Carolyn replies sarcastically, "Oh, nothing at all. I've just been having a talk with the bride to be". They discuss how strange it is that Elizabeth would want to marry Jason. Vicki suggests, "Maybe she just decided to marry him out of impulse yesterday because we all seemed to be against her and only Jason seemed to be on her side. Maybe she'll change her mind". Carolyn tells her, "I don't think so. She said those magic words. She said she loved him". Vicki continues to try to think of reasons for Elizabeth's choice, "Whatever we might think of him, he's not without charm. Maybe she does". Carolyn remarks, "I think he came here to marry her, I think he planned this!" Roger tells Carolyn, "There's nothing any of us can do about this. Each of us is allowed to ruin his life as he wishes". Carolyn replies, "You're right, Uncle Roger!" She goes to the telephone and looks up a number in the phone book. While dialing the phone, she remarks, "I'll show her how well I can do something with my life! If Mother's found love, I will too!". She then speaks into the telephone mouthpiece, "Hello, Buzz?... I've been thinking about you... I saw you go by the other day on your motorcycle..." Roger and Vicki look very concerned.

Vicki and Joe are at the Blue Whale*. Joe is telling Vicki, "I was talking to the captain of the fishing fleet on the phone when suddenly I heard a noise outside. I looked out the window and couldn't believe what I saw. I saw a whole bunch of guys on motorcycles, at least 20 of them, all revving up at once. And guess who was with them? A very familiar blond." Vicki guesses, "Carolyn!" Joe continues, "Then they came back later, trailing beer cans after themselves, and Carolyn was still with them like some sort of Biker Queen". He asks, "What is that girl doing?" Vicki explains, "She's getting back at her mother". Joe tells Vicki he's puzzled that Elizabeth would marry Jason, remarking, "She can't be so blind as not to see what kind of man he is". There is the sound of a motorcycle outside. The front door opens. Carolyn and a skuzzy biker come in. The biker announces their entrance, "TA DUM!" He tells Carolyn, "You're something else!" Carolyn replies, "You know it, Buzz!" Carolyn tells Buzz she'd like something to drink. Buzz asks, "Where do you put it?" Carolyn replies, "I don't know, but there's still room for more!". Buzz turns his pockets inside out and says, "Sorry. No more bread". Carolyn replies, "Don't worry. I have more bread than you'll ever see!" and asks the bartender for two "stingers", but Buzz opts for a beer instead.

At the table, Vicki remarks, "They're drunk". Joe and Vicki look very concerned. Carolyn sees Joe and Vicki. She takes Buzz to the table and introduces him to them. Buzz invites Vicki to go take a ride with him on his motorcycle. Vicki declines. Carolyn remarks, "If she wants to stay here safe and secure, let her! I've found a way of life where that doesn't count!"

The clock in the foyer at Collinwood reads 2:50. There's a loud motor noise outside. Outside, Buzz has stopped his motorcycle right outside the door. Buzz - possibly not quite the rebel he appears to be - starts to look concerned and asks Carolyn if it wouldn't have been better for him to let her off at the back door. Carolyn replies, "Nothing but the best for us! Front door!" She kisses him and invites him inside. Inside, Buzz gives a whistle of appreciation at the house. He asks, "You really live in this place?" Carolyn replies, "No, this isn't the kind of place anyone lives in, people only exist here". Buzz looks at the stairs and jokes, "It would be fun to ride my bike up those stairs". Carolyn replies, "Go ahead. Bring it in here! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT!". Buzz, looking surprised, replies," I can't do that. It'd wake everyone up!" Carolyn takes him into the drawing room for drinks. She turns the radio on very, very loud. Buzz announces, "The party begins again!" and they start dancing.

Elizabeth comes down into the drawing room and angrily asks, "Do you know what time it is? It's 3 o'clock in the morning!" Carolyn replies, "Who cares what time it is? I've found myself a man, a real man!" Buzz, sprawled comfortably on one of the sofas, drunkenly greets Elizabeth, "Hi, mommy!" Elizabeth tells him, "You're drunk. Get out of here!" Buzz, acting offended, starts to say, "Mrs. Stoddard!...", but Carolyn interrupts him, "Not Mrs. Stoddard. Mrs. McGuire. I told you. She's going to marry Mr. McGuire". Buzz asks, "But why do you call her that now. She's not married to him yet". Carolyn replies, "Because I want her to get used to it! I want her to hear how it sounds like to be called Mrs. Jason McGuire! You are proud of it, aren't you mother?" Elizabeth, very upset, runs out of the room and up the stairs. Carolyn runs out into the foyer and taunts her, "Mrs. McGuire! Mrs. Mrs. McGuire! Mrs. McGuire!" as a distraught Elizabeth runs up the stairs. Elizabeth, standing on the landing just outside the door to the bedroom hallway, turns, looks down and sees Carolyn and Buzz in the foyer. Carolyn announces, "You've found love, Mrs. McGuire, well so have I!!", then turns and kisses Buzz.

NOTE: This scene was originally written for Vicki and Burke. Unfortunately, Mitchell Ryan was having drinking problems at this time and didn't show up for shooting, so the scene was hastily rewritten with Joe in Burke's place. Ryan would be fired after this and never appear on Dark Shadows again. He would later overcome his problems and continue with his acting career.

My name is Victoria Winters. A full moon newly risen, continues to climb the early evening sky Collinwood, as though straining to create a distance between itself and what it sees on the earth below--a ring of silver mist encircles it--and the wind from the sea announces that soon no light will shine at all. But the dark that lies ahead is not the deepest dark to be found this night, and this brief moment of the moon, rising like a single hope, will only make the night more bitter, so that nothing can emerge from the darkness but an even darker despair.

Maggie is lying in the cell in the basement of the Old House, looking very disconsolate. Trying not to think of her terrible experience in the coffin, she thinks to herself, "I mustn't give in! I won't forget who I am! I can't! No! I wouldn't ever think of that! Something else! Think of something else! Concentrate! Think!", but gives up, "I can't think. I've got to get out of here! All I can see is that coffin!" She hears someone coming to the door and exclaims, "Willie!", but the door opens. It is not Willie. It is Barnabas. Maggie screams, "NO! Stay away from me! Please! Stay away! Don't come any nearer! Stay away!" Barnabas sarcastically says, "But I don't understand. Why should you be afraid of me? I'm not the one who tried to harm you. You tried to destroy ME". Maggie counters, "I know what you wanted to do to me! I saw that coffin! You wanted to make me like you!". Barnabas replies, "But you ARE Josette". Maggie counters, "I am Maggie, MAGGIE EVANS". Barnabas tells her, "I just want you to be more cooperative in the future. I've brought you something to help" and takes out the music box". Maggie shouts, "NO!" Barnabas warns her, "It's your only hope". Maggie tells him, "I'll SMASH it!". Barnabas takes the music box away from her and warns her, "I'm offering you a second chance. I doubt if a third will come". Maggie agrees, "All right. Leave it" and promises to try to think of herself as Josette. Barnabas tells her, "You'll more than try". Maggie replies, "Yes". Barnabas says, "I'll send Willie down with some food" and turns to leave. Maggie tells him, "Barnabas, as long as I'm not going to leave here..." Barnabas corrects her, "But we will be leaving here - together". Maggie continues, "But my father...". Barnabas tells her, "You must forget about the past". Maggie begs Barnabas to somehow let Sam know she is still alive, that that would ease her mind make it easier for her forget her past and become Josette. She takes a ring off her finger and tells him, "Send him this ring..." Barnabas replies, "Absurd! You'd be a fool to expect me to do that! When they get that, they'll renew the search!".

David and Vicki are in the foyer of Collinwood. Vicki is telling David, "It's already getting dark, David". David, wanting to go out and play, complains to Vicki, "First I can't go out because I have to study, now I can't go out because it's getting dark. When CAN I go out?" Vicki relents and says, "All right, if you'll promise me one thing: Don't go too far from the house". David promises, "I'll stay right near the house. I promise you. I'll be all right. I'll be right outside the house". Vicki asks, "Promise?" David replies, "I promise and I mean it!", then remarks, "They've stopped looking for Maggie Evans, haven't they?" Vicki, looking upset, replies, "No, not really". David says, "I hope they find out who did it, and I hope they find her too!".

Willie is in the cell with Maggie. On a crate is a bowl of food. Willie remarks, "You didn't eat much". He gestures towards the music box and says, "It's to help you. It's the only way". Maggie starts to say, "Willie...", but Willie interrupts her, "I'm not supposed to talk to you". Maggie continues, "But you saved my life, and I'm very grateful. I want to give you something. This ring..." and hand her her ring. Willie protests, "I don't know if Barnabas would like me to take it". Maggie replies, "But you don't have to tell him. It's worth a lot of money. You could get a lot for it. The ring reminds me of the past. It would help me forget if you took it". Willie says, "Well, it it'll help you...It must be worth a lot. Thank you!". Maggie replies, "Thank YOU Willie. I'm the one who should be grateful", a knowing gleam in her eye.

David, breaking his promise not to go far from Collinwood, is at the door of the Old House. He tries the door, but finds that it's locked. He then goes and looks in through the window and sees that no one's inside. He checks few windows and finds one that is unlocked. He opens it and goes inside. Once inside, he looks around and calls out, "Josette! I'm back! I said I'd come back. Josette! Josette! I'm back!". Receiving no reply, he starts up the stairs when suddenly Willie enters the room and shouts, "WHERE ARE YOU GOING?!?!?!" David comes back down and calmly says, "Hi". Willie asks, "What are you doing here?" David lies, "Nothing". Willie reminds him, "You've been told not to come here. It's Mr. Collins' house now". David replies, "I just wanted to go up to that little room". Willie asks, "What little room?" David replies, "Josette's room". Willie tells him, "You're not going anywhere but out!" David protests, "I promised her...", but Willie just shouts, "Out!". David calmly says, "I want to tell you something. I know what you're doing here". Willie, sounding alarmed, asks, "What?" David continues, "What you and cousin Barnabas are doing here". Willie asks, "What do you mean you know?" David explains, "You're trying to do something to Josette!" Willie asks, "What are we trying to do to her?" David continues, "You're trying to pretend she's not here. You're trying to make her leave. That's why you took her portrait away, that's why you've changed everything! But you can't get rid of her, and I'm going to see her again!". Willie, much relieved to find that David is talking about Josette's ghost, says, "Not if Mr. Collins has anything to do with it!", lifts David up, opens the front doors and literally throws him out. David protests, "I'll tell my aunt Elizabeth!" Willie counters, "Go ahead! She doesn't want you here either". David looks down and notices something on the ground. He picks it up. It's Maggie's ring. He yells to Willie, "Hey! I've got something for you!". Willie shouts through the door, "I said GO AWAY!!". David tries to say, "But...", but Willie just keeps shouting, "GO AWAY!!!". David, angrily mutters, "OK, I won't give it to you, then" and leaves.

David has returned to Collinwood and is in the foyer, where Vicki is scolding him, "I called you and you weren't around! You broke your promise!" David lies, "No I didn't" Vicki notices the ring he's holding and asks, "Where did you get that?" and takes it from him. David protests, "It's mine!" Vicki remarks, "It's a ring", and asks, "Where did you find it". David replies, "I found it on the ground. I don't know whose it is". Vicki examines the ring and remarks, "It's got an inscription inside" and holds it up to the light to try to read it, but finally gives up, "It's a name, but it's so small I can't make it out". There's a knock at the front doors. Vicki asks, "Who is it?" A voice replies, "Barnabas". Vicki lets him in, apologizing, "Forgive me for asking who it was, but these days, you can't be too careful". Barnabas replies, "I understand. It's a good idea, with the madman possibly still roaming Collinsport. David says "I think I'll go up to my room now", and turns to leave, but Barnabas stops him, saying, "I owe you an apology. I'm afraid my servant Willie was rude to you when you came to the Old House. I told him I wanted my privacy, but I'm afraid he was overzealous". Vicki scolds David, "So, you DID go to the Old House! Is that where you got that ring?" Barnabas, seeing the ring Vicki's holding, asks her, "Let me see it." She hands it to him and he examines it. He asks David, "Where did you say you found this?" David replies, "Outside the Old House. It dropped from Willie's pocket". Barnabas lies, "I recognize it. It's an old family piece. I gave it to Willie to sell". Vicki scolds David, "And you said you didn't know who it belonged to. That's the same as stealing!", but Barnabas thanks David, "Thank you for retrieving it. It's quite valuable. QUITE valuable".

Maggie is sitting in the cell. She hears footsteps coming and opens the music box, pretending that she's been listening to it. Barnabas unlocks the door and comes in. Hearing the music, he remarks, "It's lovely, isn't it?" Maggie replies, "Yes it is". Barnabas tells her, "I'm quite pleased to see you enjoying it, and I'm quite pleased to see your new sense of cooperation". Maggie says, "Thank you". Barnabas continues, "I've made the right decision. You're quite intelligent. Intelligence was the very essence of the character of my lovely Josette". He continues, "By the way, I have your ring. I was talking to Miss Winters at the big house. Apparently, David found it outside the door of this house where it had been dropped by my loyal servant Willie it. I managed to retrieve it before Miss Winters could read the inscription. I'll keep it in a safe place for you, a place where no one will find it. I congratulate you. Your attempts are getting better, but you'll have to excuse me if I don't congratulate you on its lack of success!" and leaves. Maggie slams the lid of the music box down in frustration, tears in her eyes.

My name is Victoria Winters. A clear night sky scattered with stars hangs high over Collinwood. A warm wind sends the scent of the sea in through the open windows and an almost unearthly calm pervades the night air. No cloud is seen, no storm is promised. But the storms within the human spirit continue to rage. Child is turned against parent, and rebellion, with all its pain and anguish, tears at the hearts of both.

Carolyn and Elizabeth are in the drawing room of Collinwood. Elizabeth asks Carolyn, "Carolyn, where are you going? I want an answer!" Carolyn just replies, "Out!" Elizabeth warns her against going out alone so late with all the attacks going on. Carolyn replies, "Don't worry. I'll find someone to go with!" Elizabeth remarks, "You mean that Buzz? He makes my flesh crawl!" Carolyn retorts, "He's not as bad as some men I could think of". Elizabeth begs, "Carolyn, please don't go out. It's too dangerous", but Carolyn does not listen.

Elizabeth asks Vicki, "How can I stop her, Vicki?" Vicki diplomatically replies, "I don't know". Elizabeth tells her, "You know and I know. She's reacting to my marriage to Jason McGuire". They discuss the upcoming marriage. Vicki hints that she still thinks Elizabeth is being forced into it. Elizabeth denies this, saying, "You looked in that basement. You saw there was nothing there!".

Jason McGuire drags Willie Loomis into the Blue Whale. He orders two double bourbons. Willie tells him, "I told you, I don't want anything to drink!" Jason tells him, "Well, you're going to tell me what you were doing. What were you up to this afternoon? There I am, in the bank, making a transaction, and who do I see? Willie Loomis". Willie explains, "I was doing a transaction for Mr. Collins". Jason asks, "But I saw you in there with a bunch of jewels, talking to another man". Willie explains, "I was selling some jewels for Mr. Collins. The man was a jewel dealer from Boston". Jason tells him he doesn't believe him. Willie replies, "You can ask Mr. Collins if you want". Jason tells Willie, "I don't know if the news has reached you yet. Good and glorious news. I've decided to trade in my seven league boots for some slippers." He tells Willie about his upcoming marriage to Elizabeth. Willie is surprised by this and remarks, "She'd never marry you. What's the deal?" Jason replies, "The deal is that I will have a great deal of control at Collinwood soon. I was responsible for bringing you to Collinsport and I promised you I'd have a lot of money for both of us". Willie tells him, "I'm not interested in that anymore". Jason remarks, "Because you have something going for yourself, huh Willie?" Willie denies that he has.

Buzz and Carolyn come into the Blue Whale. Buzz complains about her wanting to drink all the time. Carolyn replies, "A girl gets thirsty once in a while". She sees Jason and remarks, "And sometimes a girl can get sick to her stomach" and turns to leave. Jason tells her that she can stay, that she needn't worry because he and Willie were just about to leave. Carolyn remarks, "Only if you take that smell with you!". Jason counters "Is that any way to talk to your future father-in-law?", greatly upsetting Carolyn. Jason and Willie leave. Buzz and Carolyn sit down at a table. After a drink, Buzz complains, "Drinking's a drag. I can think of other things to do". Carolyn replies, "I like that taste". Buzz says, "But it's what you feel that's important. Drinking only makes you feel drunk. How about something that'll make you feel like you've never been alive before?", suggesting a wild ride on his motorcycle. Carolyn replies, "Maybe. Let's drink first". Carolyn finishes her drink, and they get up to leave. As they get to the door, they run into Joe Haskell coming in. Joe and Carolyn say hello to each other, rather uncomfortably. Joe goes to the bar. Buzz remarks to Carolyn, "Is that the company you used to keep? You must've had a boring existence..." Carolyn tells Buzz to wait for her outside. Buzz goes outside. Carolyn goes to the bar and tells Joe, "Joe, I just want you to know how sorry I am about Maggie". At first Joe snaps, "I don't want to talk about that!", but then apologizes to Carolyn and offers to buy her a beer. Carolyn replies, "No, thanks. I'm on a date". Joe remarks, "That guy looks about as much fun as a bag of spiders". Carolyn replies, "You have your idea of fun and I have mine". Joe remarks that it's obvious she's getting back at her mother for planning to get married to a man she doesn't approve of. Buzz sticks his head in and complains, "Bike's getting cold!" Carolyn tells Joe she has to go. Joe, trying to dissuade her from going with Buzz, tells her, "That offer of a beer still stands", but Carolyn declines, saying, "All drinking makes you feel is drunk" and leaves.

In the drawing room at Collinwood, Elizabeth tells Jason, "I can't set a date. I haven't heard from my lawyers yet". Jason replies, "I've taken the liberty of going to Richard Garner. He tells me everything will be taken care of in two weeks." Elizabeth tries to stall, "That's not enough time. I have things to do, preparations to make...", but Jason insists on being married in two weeks, adding, "I'd like you to announce it at first opportunity". Buzz and Carolyn come in. Jason tells Carolyn, "Your mother and I have decided on a date. Two weeks from today". Carolyn is clearly disturbed by this. She asks Buzz, "You like weddings? You want to come?" Buzz begs off, saying, "I'll be out of town that day", but Carolyn tells him, "I like weddings. Especially my own! Know what, Buzz? Let's get married! Let's get married on the same day!" Elizabeth tells Carolyn, "Carolyn, be serious". Carolyn replies, "What makes you think I'm not?" She turns to Buzz and says, "Two weeks from today! You and me! Man and wife, bride and groom!"

My name is Victoria Winters. A warm night wind wails around the walls of Collinwood, and for all the world sounds like a cry of anguish and despair. Imprisoned in the depths of a house on the great estate, there is one who knows despair and yet still clings to a single, frail hope. A hope that she will somehow be freed from the prison in which she is held captive. Freed from the one who would destroy her.

Barnabas is in Josette's room. Willie comes in with a bunch of flowers. He tells Barnabas, "I've got the flowers" and gives them to him. Barnabas remarks, "Josette loved fresh cut flowers. She had them placed in the room every morning". He puts them in a vase. Willie asks, "Why? Are you thinking of letting the girl up here again? You can't keep her downstairs forever. She's going to go crazy down there". Barnabas replies, "She deserves much worse. I offered her the world, a chance to become my bride, my Josette, and she refused!" Willie asks, "What if you give her another chance and she refuses again?" Barnabas replies, "I'll have to kill her, of course!"

Sam Evans is drinking at the Blue Whale. Joe Haskell comes in. He asks Sam, "Have you checked with the sheriff today?" Sam replies, "No, if he has any new news, he'd call me". Joe tells him, "I think I'll stop by the sheriff's office. Want to join me?" Sam replies, "No, I've got to go to Collinwood. I finished that painting of Barnabas Collins last night and I want to collect the commission". Joe remarks, "It's good that you've been working". Sam replies, "You've got to do something. But I won't give up hope. As long as I'm alive, I'm going to believe Maggie is alive, somewhere..."

And indeed she is. Maggie is in the cell in the basement of the old house. Willie comes into the cell. Maggie exclaims, "You don't know how good it is to see you!" Willie tells her, "I came to take you back up to your room. He's going to give you another chance". He recommends, "You gotta go along with him. You gotta convince him you're sincere". Maggie protests, "I can't", but Willie tells her, "You've got to make him believe you!! This could be your last chance, your very last chance!"

Willie brings Maggie back up to Josette's room. Barnabas tells Willie, "Leave us". Willie does. Barnabas asks Maggie, "How are you, my dear?" Maggie replies, "Better". Barnabas asks, "Happy to return to your room?" Maggie exclaims, "It's like a paradise!" Barnabas asks, "Would you like to stay here again?" Maggie asks, "May I?" Barnabas says, "We shall see". Maggie starts to beg him to let her stay, but Barnabas stops her, saying, "Don't plead. Josette was above begging". He tells her about the flowers, "Josette had a vase of flowers in every room in the house. She celebrated life. She liked to see beauty wherever she was". He then tells Maggie , "It's easy for you to be free. All you have to do is accept your destiny. I see you have her music box." Maggie lies, "Yes. Sometimes the music made me feel like I were Josette". Barnabas asks, "Play it. It would please me". Maggie opens the lid and the music starts playing. Barnabas asks her how it makes her feel. Maggie replies, "Calm...I shall be your bride. I want to be your bride." Barnabas tells her, "I want you to be happy. I promise to make you happy". He takes her hand to kiss it. Maggie recoils. Barnabas realizes she has been trying to fool him. He tells her, "You've been trying to fool me. You still think you're that common creature Maggie Evans." Maggie angrily replies, "Maggie Evans! That's what I am, and nothing you can do can change that!" Suddenly, Willie comes running into the room exclaiming, "Barnabas! He's here!" Barnabas asks, "Who's here?" Willie replies, "Her father! His car just stopped out back! He'll be here any minute!" Barnabas gives Willie, who's been holding Maggie, a hand over her mouth to keep her from screaming, a handkerchief to gag her with and tells him, "Keep her quiet". Barnabas tells Willie to take Maggie into the hallway just out of sight at the top of the stairs. Willie protests, "But she'll be only a few feet from her father!" Barnabas tells him, "I know. I want her to hear". Willie asks, "But what if she makes a noise?" Barnabas warns, "I don't think she will. If she did, I'd be forced to kill her. And forced to kill her father too, of course".

Sam knocks at the door. Barnabas goes down, answers it, and lets Sam in. Sam tells Barnabas, "Mr. Collins. I came to deliver the portrait. I finished it last night". Barnabas asks, "I thought you had stopped painting". Sam replies, "No, I used it as a form of therapy". He gives Barnabas the portrait and tells him, "I hope you like it". Barnabas looks at it and replies, "Splendid! It's everything I had hoped for!" Sam apologizes, "It's not the best I can do, but it's the best I can do right now". Barnabas replies, "I apologize for not asking earlier. Any news of your daughter?" Sam replies, "None". Barnabas remarks, "I'm sure the authorities are still searching for her". Sam tells him, "They've pretty much given up. They've looked everywhere she could be. They're pretty sure she isn't in the area. They've circulated her picture all across the country". Barnabas says, "I hope she's all right". Sam replies, "Me too, but every day, it gets harder to have any hope, but I cling to the hope that someday, she'll be found". Suddenly, Joe Haskell comes running into the old house exclaiming, "Sam! I knew you'd be here! I had to come talk to you!" He apologizes to Barnabas for barging in and interrupting, then takes Sam aside and tells him, "Sam, I just came from the Sheriff's Office!" Sam asks, "Have they located her?" Joe replies, Brace yourself. They've found a body on the beach 50 miles north of here. They think it's Maggie. It's the right age and the right size, but it's been in the water for four or five days and is too decomposed to be recognizable". Sam says, "But there's a possibility it's not Maggie!" Joe replies, sadly, "There is, but they're pretty sure it is". Sam gives up and says, "I'm kidding myself. It's Maggie. I can't believe it. Maggie, gone." Barnabas comes over and says, "I couldn't help overhearing. My condolences". Sam, devastated, tells Joe, "Come on. Let's go". They leave.

Barnabas and Willie bring Maggie back to Josette's room. Barnabas ungags Maggie and asks, "Hear that? Hear what they said? Still think they'll come looking for you? They think you're dead! As far as the world is concerned, Maggie Evans IS dead! Oh, they'll grieve for you for awhile, especially your father and young Haskell, but eventually, even they will forget the fact that you existed at all. Young Haskell will find another girl. They'll marry and have a family, and all his feelings for you will be transferred to her. Your father will console himself by drowning himself in drink for awhile, then will start painting again. Eventually, you'll become just a dim memory to him. As far as the world is concerned, Maggie Evans is gone. She doesn't exist anymore. It's better if you find another existence as Josette..." Maggie screams, "Never!" Barnabas tells her he's going to have her put back into the cell again, saying, "It's the best place for you to think. One thinks best in solitude". Maggie screams, "No!!!!" and starts to beg him not to put her back into the cell. Barnabas tells Willie, "Take her out of here, Willie. The sight of her offends me". Maggie tries to beg some more, but Willie tells her, "Don't argue. It's no use" and takes her away.

Willie takes Maggie away and back down into the dungeon. Maggie begs, "Please Willie, don't go! Don't leave me alone!" Willie replies, "I have to". Maggie begs, "Don't go. Stay. Just for a while. I can't stand to be alone!", but Willie leaves. Maggie, disconsolate, throws herself on the bed.

A long time later, Maggie is surprised to hear the voice of a young girl singing,

"London Bridge is falling down,
Falling down, falling down,
London Bridge is falling down,
My fair lady!
Take the key and lock her up,
Lock her up, lock her up,
Take the key and lock her up,
My fair lady!..."

The singing stops. Maggie mutters, "Who is it? Am I losing my mind? I thought I heard something!" The singing starts again. Maggie asks, "Who is it? Who's out there?" and gets out of bed, goes to the door, and looks out the window. She is surprised to see a young girl of about 9 or 10 out there. The girl, who is dressed very strangely, is cradling a doll in her arms and singing "London Bridge" to it.

My name is Victoria Winters. Hope of rescue is fading for a girl being held captive, and now she must struggle to retain her sanity. For soon she must make the decision for her own life or death. But there is a presence that could effect her fate.

Maggie calls out, "Little girl! Over here! Little girl! Are you really there? Little girl, answer me! Please answer me so I know you're really there! Why don't you answer me! Answer me!" But the little girl, who's now tossing a ball into the air and catching it while singing "London Bridge", her back turned to the cells, doesn't seem to hear a thing. Maggie warns, "Stop singing! They'll hear you and come and get you! Please, I need your help! You've got to get out of here and tell them I'm here. Maggie Evans! I'm Maggie Evans! Can't you hear me? Can't you hear me? Little girl, please listen to me!" The little girl stops singing. Maggie says, "Good! Go home now, and tell your father or mother that you saw me! Tell them you saw Maggie Evans!" The little girl leaves and goes up the stairs.

Moments later, Willie Loomis comes down, unlocks the door and comes into the cell, a plate of food with him. He tells her, "I've brought you some food. I thought I heard you talking with someone". Maggie replies, "Who would I have been talking with down here?" Willie gestures towards the music box, which is sitting on a table, and remarks, "You're supposed to be playing this. The music is supposed to keep going all the time". Maggie replies, "I can't stand to hear it anymore!" She begs Willie to help her. Willie replies, "Don't you think I want to escape? Don't you think I haven't tried? Don't you think that when I'm in town I haven't thought of stepping on the gas and driving until I'm a thousand miles from here? He's taken control of my own. My will isn't my own. He has some sort of power over me". Maggie says, "Yes, but during the day, while he's in his coffin". Willie replies, "That's when his power over me is the strongest". Maggie moans, "Why did this happen to me? Why?" Willie, looking very sad, leaves. Maggie throws herself in bed again. Willie goes upstairs. Moments later, the girl is outside the cell again, tossing the ball into the air...

At Collinwood, Vicki and David are sitting in the couch in the drawing room. Vicki is giving David his geography lesson. Carolyn comes into the drawing room. Seeing David and Vicki, she apologizes, "Pardon me. I didn't know school was in session". Vicki tells her, "The dismissal bell is just about to ring". She dismisses David, who happily runs out the front door to go play outside. Carolyn makes a remark about how tough a job it must be to tutor David. Vicki replies, "It's actually a pretty rewarding experience. Speaking of rewarding experiences, what are you up to?". Carolyn replies, "I have plans". Vicki asks, "Carolyn, how far do you intend to go with this Buzz?" Carolyn replies, "All the way. I will marry Buzz on the day my mother marries Jason McGuire". Vicki says, "I don't believe it". Carolyn replies, "You'll believe it when you see it". Vicki pleads, "Carolyn, why do you want to ruin your life?" Carolyn replies, "What's to ruin? If my mother marries Jason McGuire, it's ruined already!" She remarks on her mother's bad choice in men, "First, Paul Stoddard, who's been so busy he hasn't had the time to drop by in 18 years, and now Jason McGuire, the man who inspired the invention of truth serum. Compared to them, my Buzz seems almost saintly". She tells Vicki, "If you're thinking of getting me a wedding present, I'll tell you what you can get me. A crash helmet. As soon as we're married, we're going to take off down the road and open it up, all the way!"

David is playing on some swings near the old house. He hears a voice call, "Boy! Boy! Boy! Come over here!" He looks and sees the little girl calling to him. He goes over to her and asks, "What do you want?" The little girl replies, "I want someone to play with". David asks, "Don't you have friends to play with?" The girl replies, "I used to, but I can't find them". David asks, "Do you play around here often?" The girl replies, "Yes". David asks, "Do you live around here?" The girl replies, "Yes". David asks, "What's your name?" The girl answers, "Sarah". David tells her, "Mine's David". The girl replies, "Yes, I know". David asks, "Go to school?" The girl replies, "I used to, but I don't anymore". David tells her, "I used to too, but I don't anymore. I have a tutor now". The little girl starts to sing, "London Bridge". David remarks that that's a "baby song". The girl indignantly replies, "No it isn't! It's my favorite song!" She starts to sing it again. David asks, "Can't you do anything else". The little girl gets upset and says, "No, I keep looking for them but I can't find them! They all went away!" David promises to play with her if she comes around. The girl says, "All right. I've got to go find them now" and leaves. Willie comes into the yard. David says, "Oh, Hi Willie". Willie tells David, "You know you're not supposed to be here!" David explains, "I was playing on the swings". Willie asks, "Who did I hear you talking to?" David replies, "A kid". Willie tells him, "You shouldn't be bringing kids here". David replies, "I didn't. She came here by herself. She says she comes here to play all the time". Willie tells David, "Get out. You're not supposed to be here". David snorts, "Some pal you turned out to be!" and runs off.

David returns to Collinwood. As he goes in, the roar of a motorcycle pulling up outside is heard. Inside the foyer, Carolyn is wrapping a scarf around her neck, getting ready to go out. David tells Carolyn, "Oh, Carolyn, that Buzz is out there again. I heard him coming". Carolyn says, "EVERYONE heard him coming". David asks, "He has a cool motorcycle. Are you going on it again?" Carolyn replies, "All day". David asks, "Could I ride on it someday?" Carolyn replies, "Sure. It's going to be around here quite a while". David asks "Why." Carolyn explains, "Because Buzz and I are ...". She pauses then finishes her sentence, "...going steady" and leaves.

David goes into the drawing room and tells Vicki he's going to get a motorcycle like Buzz's someday. Vicki replies, "You always choose wrong things to want". David asks, "Why is it the wrong thing to want?" Vicki replies, "I don't want to discuss it". David remarks, "Something must be going on around here". Vicki asks, "Why do you ask that?" David explains, "No one ever wants to discuss anything" then asks Vicki, "Can you imagine someone my age singing 'London Bridge'?" He tells her, "I met a strange kid near the old house. She says she comes from around here. She said she came around here to play a lot. She said her name was Sarah. Boy, was she strange. Her hair, and her clothes. They were like, old, like they were from a long, long, LONG time ago..."

In her cell, Maggie hears a noise. It's Willie coming down the stairs. He unlocks the door and comes in. He notices that Maggie hasn't touched her food and remarks, "You didn't eat". Maggie replies, "I didn't feel like it". Willie tells her, "He won't like that". Maggie replies, "I'd rather die of starvation than his way!" Willie sadly remarks, "No one wants to die his way", takes the plate and leaves. Maggie, perhaps tired of the quiet, lifts the music box lid. The music starts. Maggie starts to pace around in the cell. Suddenly, she hears the little girl's voice singing "London Bridge is falling down..." again. Maggie goes to the window in the door and looks out. The little girl is out there again, her back to the cell, tossing her ball into the air and singing. Maggie calls out, "Little girl! Little girl! How do you come in and out without you seeing you? Little girl? Did you tell anyone you saw me? Little girl, answer me!" The little girl turn around, says, "If you see my big brother, don't tell him you saw me! He doesn't like anyone to come down here!" and leaves...

My name is Victoria Winters. There are those who inflict harms upon themselves in order that others might feel a greater pain. They debase and sacrifice themselves for causes that are often futile, and the instrument of revenge becomes the executioner.

Buzz comes to Collinwood and knocks on the door. Elizabeth answers the door and asks, "What do you want?" Buzz points out, "There's only one reason I come up here". Elizabeth asks, "Carolyn expecting you?" Buzz replies, "She's always expecting me!". Elizabeth tells him, "I'll get her" and starts to close the door. Buzz indignantly exclaims, "Hey! Can't I come in?" Elizabeth coldly replies, "No" and closes the door. Carolyn comes down the stairs into the foyer and asks, "For me?" Elizabeth replies, "Yes". Carolyn asks, "Where is he?" Elizabeth replies, "He's waiting outside". Carolyn angrily asks, "Waiting outside? Did you tell him he couldn't come in?" Elizabeth tells her, "I don't want to discuss your friend right now". Carolyn replies, "He's not my friend. He's my fiancé, and you're going to have to talk about him, because soon, he's going to be your son-in-law!" Carolyn goes outside and gives Buzz a big hug. She invites him inside and tells him to wait, "I want to make sure those doors are wide open for you in the future. You'll never have to wait outside again!". Buzz cheers her on, "Give it to her, baby! Tell her if she's a good girl, I might even give her a ride on my motorcycle!". Carolyn tells Buzz to make himself comfortable while she's talking to her mother. Buzz sits down sprawled on the stairs.

Carolyn goes into the drawing room, where Elizabeth is busy putting some flowers into a vase and angrily says, "Don't ever close the door to a friend of mine again!" Elizabeth counters, "Next time I won't even open the door!" They start to argue about Buzz. Elizabeth tells Carolyn, "You've made your point. You want to stop me from marrying Jason". Carolyn remarks, "You'll like Buzz once you get to know him". Elizabeth says, "No I won't. He won't be around long enough for me to know him". Carolyn says, "Yes he will, because I'm going to marry him". Elizabeth says sternly, "You are NOT going to marry him". Carolyn counters, "If that's what you think, you're in for a shock, because I will!". Elizabeth responds, "I'll have your marriage annulled!" Carolyn retorts, "Why don't you have yours annulled too?" She suggests, "Why don't we have a double wedding? That will save money on the preacher. I can hear it right now, both of us saying, 'I do' together. How would you like that, Mrs. McGuire?" Elizabeth asks, "If I don't marry Jason, will that end this nonsense?" Carolyn responds, "I don't know, mother. Try me". Elizabeth, realizing she's getting nowhere, tells Carolyn, "Your friend's waiting". Carolyn reminds her, "FIANCÉ, Mother, FIANCÉ".

Jason, coming down the stairs, finds his path blocked by Buzz. Jason tells Buzz, "Pardon me", but Buzz doesn't move. Jason remarks, "You look very comfortable". Buzz nonchalantly replies, "Yes I am". He suggests to Jason that he step over him. Jason replies, "I could try that, but you know, I might accidentally stop ON you". Buzz moves. Jason sarcastically remarks, "Good lad! Safety first and all that!" and comes down into the foyer. Carolyn comes into the foyer and, seeing Jason and Buzz, remarks caustically, "Now that's a sight! The two bridegrooms!" Jason asks Carolyn, "Going out for a motorcycle ride?" Carolyn replies, "Yes", then asks, "Hey! How about a ride? I'd love to see Buzz give you a ride you'd never forget!" Jason declines. He tells her he'll get her a leather jacket for Christmas. Carolyn tells Buzz she has to go upstairs and get dressed.

Jason goes into the drawing room. Elizabeth tells him, "She intends to go through with it". Jason tells her he thinks Carolyn's bluffing. Elizabeth tells him she doesn't think so. She tells him, "I can't go through with this marriage. I agreed to it to stop you from ruining Carolyn's life, but if it's going to get ruined anyway..." Jason insists that Carolyn is bluffing and tells Elizabeth, "All she needs is some talking to. Some fatherly advice". Elizabeth tells him she doesn't think that'll work. Jason replies, "Really, Liz. You're marrying a man who can handle anything!".

Carolyn is in her room brushing her hair. There's a knock at the door. Jason comes in and asks for a few minutes of her time. Carolyn warns him, "I'm not taking any advice today. I've had all I can take from my mother". Jason replies, "Not the kind I have. This is fatherly advice". Carolyn explodes, "HOW DARE YOU SAY THAT?" Jason asks, "Why do you hate me so?" Carolyn replies, "Hate is too mild a word to describe what I feel about you!". Jason says, "Look at that temper! That's the Paul Stoddard temper. That's the same temper that caused Paul Stoddard to walk out of here 18 years ago and cause your mother 18 years of misery. Now her daughter is going to cause her more misery. It makes me sick". He tries to tell her, "You and I are really both the same. We're both only concerned with the welfare of your mother". Carolyn retorts, "Now you're making ME sick. I know the only thing YOU care about!". Jason warns her, "This wedding will go on despite your efforts to stop it!".

Jason goes back down to the drawing room. Elizabeth asks, "How did you handle it?" Jason replies, "Rather well, I'd say". Elizabeth asks, "Did you talk her out of it?" Jason replies, "I think I have the situation under control". Elizabeth asks, "Did you or did you not talk her out of it?" Jason responds, "Well, you can't expect me to talk her out of the whole thing at once..." Elizabeth remarks, "Then you really didn't do anything". Jason remarks, "I think I'll talk to the lad. I think I can handle him".

Carolyn and Buzz are at the Blue Whale dancing. They finish and sit down at a table. Carolyn and Buzz are the only two young people there. The rest of the customers are all middle aged. Buzz remarks, "The wrong generation hangs out here. There must be a better place to swing. I think I know the place. It's in Logansport". They decide to go to Logansport, but Carolyn tells Buzz she's got to powder her nose first and goes to the ladies room. Jason comes into the Blue Whale and, seeing Buzz, remarks, "Ah, Buzz. There you are. Enjoying the nightlife, I see". Buzz replies, "Not exactly". Jason asks, "Where's Carolyn?" Buzz replies, "Powdering her nose". Jason asks, "Have you known her long?" Buzz replies, "Yes". Jason asks, "She ever go out with you before?" Buzz replies, "No". Jason points out, "Then don't you think it's strange that all of sudden she would?" He sits down and tells Buzz, "Let me tell you something confidential. As you know, I'm marrying Carolyn's mother, and she doesn't like it a bit". He tells Buzz that Carolyn is just using him to "shake her mother up". Buzz nonchalantly replies, "If that's what happening man, I'm having it pretty good!". Jason warns him, "Don't take this talk of marriage seriously. She'll drop you when she's gotten her objective", but finds that Buzz doesn't care. Finally, Jason tells Buzz, "Stop seeing Carolyn and it'll be very much appreciated". Buzz asks, "Exactly how much?" Jason replies, "You have a nice motorcycle. If you'll spend more time with your other friends and less with Carolyn, you'll easily be able to afford another just like it. What do you say to that?" Buzz replies, "I say NO! I like the bike I have, and the chick I have." Carolyn comes back out. Buzz tells her about Jason's offer. Carolyn asks, "Did you take it?" Buzz replies, "Swap you for a bike? NEVER!" Carolyn tells Jason, "Well Jason, I guess you're a bit short on salesmanship tonight. But the only person you've ever been able to sell you bill of goods to is my mother. What's the matter? Mother having second thoughts?" Jason insists, "No, Carolyn, no second thoughts. The marriage will go on as planned!" Carolyn replies, "Good to hear it. Marriage is a wonderful institution". As Carolyn and Jason leave to go to Logansport, Carolyn remarks, "Pleasant dreams, Jason. But your dreams are all pleasant, aren't they? They're all about money!" She and Buzz laugh and leave.

My name is Victoria Winters. The only fact that man knows of his future is that death is inevitable. And yet this is the only fact that he continually resists accepting. For one who has accepted death as imminent, all hope vanishes.

At the old house, Maggie goes to the door of the cell and looks out the window. There is no one there. Maggie calls out quietly, "Little girl! Little girl? Where is she? Where is she? Little girl! Little girl! Come back! Come back!" In despair, she collapses onto the bed and moans, "There's no hope. I'm dead. Dead. I'm dead!" Suddenly, she hears the little girl's voice singing "London Bridge" again. She looks up and is startled to see the little girl - IN the cell. Maggie asks, "Little girl, how did you get in here? How?", but the little girl, instead of answering, just continues singing. Maggie asks, "Little girl. How did you get in here. Please, I'm asking you!" The girl stops singing and says, "I came to visit you again". Maggie tells her, "Thank you. I'm so glad to see you!". The little girls says, "I heard you crying. It sounded so sad. That's why I came to see you. Why were you crying? I remember a long time ago, there was a lot of crying. I heard it. My mother was crying, my father was crying. Even my brother was crying, but he wouldn't let anyone see him". Maggie tells the girl, "I was crying because it was so dark in here and I was so frightened and lonely, but I'm not going to be frightened and lonely now that you're here". that she was crying because it was dark and she was lonely". She asks, "Anyone see you come in here?" The girl replies, "No. No one EVER sees me come in here". Maggie tries the door but finds it securely locked. She asks the girl, "But how did you get in here? The door's locked! How did you get in here?" The girl responds, "Oh, I have a way". The girl points to the music box and asks, "What's that?" Maggie tells her, "A music box". Maggie lifts the top and the music starts to play. She asks the girl, "Would you like to have it?" The girl replies, "Thanks, but I'm not supposed to accept gifts". Maggie begs, "Please, little girl. Tell me how you got in here", but the girl just remarks, "I like that music. Don't you?" Maggie, frustrated, slams the music box lid down and exclaims, "NO! I HATE IT!" She asks, "Little girl, did you tell your mother and father about me?" The girl replies, "I couldn't find them". Maggie asks, "Are you lost? Did you tell anyone?" The girl replies, "No. I couldn't find anyone I knew. They all went away". Maggie asks, "Don't you have any friends?" The girl replies, "Yes, but I don't know where he is. Will you be my friend?" Maggie repels, "Of course". The girl asks, "Will you play with me?" Maggie replies, "Yes". They start tossing the little girl's ball around. The girl remarks, "I like playing ball". Maggie replies, "So do I". Once again Maggie asks the girl, "I wish you'd tell me how you got in here". Once again the girl evades the question, "Do you like to sing? Will you sing with me?" Maggie replies that she will. They start to sing "London Bridge", playing catch at the same time. Suddenly, Maggie stops and goes to the door to look out the window. Seeing nothing, she comes back and warns the girl, "Not so loud. They'll hear us". The girl asks, "Who?" Maggie replies, "The other people in this house. People who aren't nice". The girl asks, "Bad people?". Maggie replies, "Yes. You'd better go before they come. Will you take me with you?" The girl replies that she will. Maggie goes to the window and looking out again, says, "They'll be coming down any minute! That's why we've got to leave right away!". But when she turns back, she finds that the little girl is gone. She exclaims, "Where'd you go? Little girl, come back! Come back! Come back!"

Maggie is sitting in the cell alone, singing "London Bridge" slowly and quietly. Barnabas comes in and touches her on the shoulder. Maggie recoils, screaming, "NO! NO! Leave me alone! Please!" Barnabas tells her, "I only came to see how you were". Maggie says, "No. You came to kill me!" Barnabas replies, "No. I heard you singing. You sounded so happy". Maggie says, "No, I'm going to die and you're going to kill me!" Barnabas' voice is uncharacteristically gentle. He tells her, "No, You have the opportunity of living a long, long life if you wish. As Josette Collins, you can live for eternity". Maggie shouts, "No!" Barnabas suddenly turns stern and asks, "Do you know if you reject me you'll lose your life?" Maggie replies, "I won't, because I'm going to get out of here!" Barnabas asks, "How?" Maggie replies, "I can't tell you. It's a secret". Maggie's tone of voice indicates that her mind is starting to go. Barnabas replies, "Well, you keep your secret. I won't ask you about it. You can escape if you want to". Maggie says, "You think everyone thinks I'm dead, but somebody knows I'm alive". Barnabas asks, "Who?" Maggie replies, "My friend. A secret friend. She comes and plays with me. We play catch and sing and have fun together. I can't wait for my friend to come again. She's going to come again, very soon!". Barnabas opens the door and leaves, a sad look on his face.

Barnabas goes back upstairs. Willie tells Barnabas, "I gotta get some food ready to take downstairs". Barnabas tells Willie, "I'm afraid Maggie Evans has gone out of her mind. She's starting to babble. She speaks of a friend, a friend who comes into the room and plays with her. I'm afraid Maggie Evans will never fit into my plans now". Willie asks, "What do you plan to do?" Barnabas replies, "Dispose of her". Willie asks hopefully, "You mean let her go?" Barnabas replies, "You know what I mean. Killing her will be the safest.". Willie tries to dissuade him, "But her body will be found!" Barnabas replies, "I will kill her in a way that leaves no trace". Willie begs Barnabas to show Maggie some mercy, but Barnabas replies, "There was a time when I needed mercy, a time when I begged for it from those who cold have very easily given it, and they chose not to give it. Now I choose not to give any." Willie continues to try to dissuade him from killing Maggie, but Barnabas warns him, "If you continue to interfere, your fate will be identical to hers! She will be disposed of. Tomorrow!"

In the cell downstairs, Maggie goes to the window and calls, "Little girl! Little girl! Where are you? I'm waiting for you! Come out and play! Where are you!" Someone comes. But it's not the little girl, it's Willie. He asks Maggie through the window, "What's the matter?" Maggie replies, "Nothing. Nothing at all". Willie asks, "Who were you calling?" Maggie replies, "My friend! But you're not supposed to know about that!" Willie asks, "Why?" Maggie replies, "Because it's a secret, that's why!" Willie gives Maggie a bowl of food, saying, "It's just some stuff I had upstairs". Maggie starts spooning up the food, which looks like thick soup or mush or something. Willie asks, "Hungry?" Maggie replies, "Starved!" and continues to eat ravenously. Willie tells her, "I wish you'd knock off this secret friend stuff. It's not doing any good", obviously thinking Maggie is feigning madness. He tells her, "Things are going to get rough if we don't think of something". Maggie tells Willie, "Willie, I'm happy now. I have a friend, and she comes into the room and plays with me." Willie shouts, "The only way you're going to save yourself is to be sane! You'd better get normal!", but Maggie continues, "I have a friend, my best friend. She comes in here and plays with me..." Willie shouts, "STOP! THERE'S NO ONE! NO ONE!" and leaves, now thinking that Maggie has indeed become mad. Maggie goes back to the window and moans, "I know she's there. Why doesn't she come play with me? I know she's real". She throws herself on the bed and starts to cry. Then she notice a doll lying on the floor, the little girl's doll. She picks it up and says, "It's her's! It's real! I know she's going to come back! I know it!" and affectionately presses the doll to her face.

My name is Victoria Winters. Collinwood for eighteen years has held one woman captive. But the true prisoner has been the lonely secret locked deep within her heart. Terror is the ransom that must be paid, and freedom is more terrifying than captivity. But the stones of Collinwood are not impregnable to the thrusts of love. And the time will come when even the embattled heart must yield its long-held secret, freedom and to light.

In the drawing room at Collinwood, Elizabeth is talking on the telephone. Vicki hears her talking about something, "She's all right? Just a sprained wrist? She's at the Sheriff's office right now?" After she hangs up, she asks Vicki, "Have you seen Roger?" Vicki replies, "He just went into town". Elizabeth remarks, "Then that means I won't be able to reach him for another half an hour". Vicki asks, "Has something happened?" Elizabeth tells her, "It's Carolyn, she almost killed a woman! She was driving drunk - almost unconscious. She lost control of her car and almost hit a woman walking along the side of the road. She crashed. The woman pulled Carolyn out of the car just in time. Moments later, the car burst into flames." Vicki asks "Was Carolyn alone in the car?" Elizabeth replies, "Yes. Buzz wasn't with her. She was on her way to meet him. She's at the Sheriff's office right now". Vicki asks, "Would you like me to go get her?" Elizabeth replies, "No, the sheriff says it's has to be a family member". Vicki asks, "Is there anything I can do?" Elizabeth replies, "Yes. You can tell me what to do about Carolyn. She was even rude to the woman who rescued her". Vicki suggests, "You could go get her at the Sheriff's office". Elizabeth exclaims, "Leave Collinwood?! What difference would that make?" Vicki asks, "Isn't she doing all this because she thinks you don't care about her? It would prove to her that she still has a mother who loves her, it would prove to her she still has a mother who cares about her." Elizabeth is reluctant and says, "If I could...But I can't". She goes to the phone and starts to dial, probably to call Roger, but then stops and asks Vicki, "Do you really think it would help if I went?" Vicki replies, "Yes I do". Elizabeth asks, "Vicki, would you drive me there?" Vicki replies that she will. She goes to the front door, puts on her coat, then takes Elizabeth's coat and holds it, waiting for her. Elizabeth stands in the doorway of the drawing room, then slowly makes the journey to the front door.

Carolyn is at the sheriff's office being rude to Sheriff Patterson and making a pest of herself. She tells him, "I'm bored!" The sheriff tells her, "Someone will be by to pick you up soon". Carolyn replies, "Yes, it'll be my uncle Roger. I could do without his brand of disapproval. I'm tired. I want to go lie down". The sheriff replies, "There's an empty cell back there you could use. That's where I should have put you in the first place if I didn't have so much respect for your mother". The sheriff tries to tell her how worried her mother is about her, but Carolyn replies, "She couldn't care less about me". She tells the sheriff she's tired and asks to be taken to the cell to lie down in. As he is taking her to the cellblock, she tells him, "Wake me when my Uncle Roger comes to get me".

Elizabeth arrives at the sheriff's office. The sheriff exclaims, "Mrs. Stoddard!", obviously shocked to see her there. Elizabeth tells him, "I've come to get my daughter". The sheriff, still in shock, mutters, "I was expecting Mr. Roger..." Elizabeth asks, "Is my daughter all right?" The sheriff tells her, "She's resting. I'll get her".

Carolyn comes into the office from the cells. She too is shocked to see Elizabeth there and exclaims, "Mother!". Elizabeth asks, "Are you all right?" Carolyn asks, "What are you doing here?" Elizabeth tells her, "I came to take you home". Carolyn exclaims, "I can't believe it!" But Elizabeth's plan backfires. Carolyn asks, "I've been in trouble before. Why haven't you ever come to get me before? What makes this time different from all the others? Why didn't you leave Collinwood for 18 years? It was because of my father. But you've left now because you no longer care about my father. You've found someone else! Get out of here! Leave me alone! Sheriff, take me back to my cell!" The sheriff warns her, "Hey, little lady, if you go on like this, I'll have you charged with disorderly conduct as well!", but Elizabeth, disconsolate, tells him, "Oh, take her back to the cell if she wants" and leaves.

Elizabeth goes back to Collinwood. In the drawing room, she tells Jason McGuire, "She wouldn't believe me. She wouldn't believe I did it for her!". Jason tells her, "You can't do anything about Carolyn right now". Elizabeth tells him, "There's always one thing I can do". Jason replies, "Yes, but we both agreed that that's the one thing you can't do". Elizabeth exclaims, "Sometimes I feel I have to tell the truth, to shout it out!" Jason tells her to calm down. She does. Jason recommends that she wash her hands of Carolyn. Elizabeth replies, "I can't do that".

It is late at night. Vicki hears crying coming from Elizabeth's room and knocks on the door, saying, "Mrs. Stoddard? Are you all right?" Elizabeth replies that she is. Vicki asks, "May I come in?" Elizabeth replies, "Yes". Vicki comes in and apologizes for getting her to go to get Carolyn. Vicki once again asks if Jason McGuire has some kind of hold on her. Once again Elizabeth denies it. Not believing her, Vicki asks, "What is it? Whatever it is, it can't be as bad as getting married to Jason McGuire!" Elizabeth blurts out, "It's worse! It's much worse! I killed him - my husband, Carolyn's father - Paul Stoddard - I killed him! I killed him! I killed him!"

My name is Victoria Winters. A brilliant afternoon sun brightens the walls of Collinwood, and all is silent except for the cries of the gulls that circle overhead, and the buzz of the bees in meadows. But not far from the great house, there is one that cannot know the sunlight. Only the darkness of a prison cell in which she is to die. There is one who would save her, but he is haunted by fear. Fear that her salvation would mean his own death.

Willie is at a window in the living room of the old house, doing some work with a hammer. The clock strikes three o'clock. Willie thinks to himself, "Three. Three o'clock. That means she only has two hours to live, three at the most. I've gotta do something. I can't let her die, I can't". He looks at the portrait of Barnabas that Sam painted, now hanging over the mantel, and remarks, "It's YOU who should die, Barnabas, I should take this hammer and kill you, then we'll be free, both of us! That's what I should do!" He turns to go down and do so, but then stops and thinks, "But what if he doesn't die? Then he'll come after me, and I can't even imagine what he'd do to me then. I can't do anything. He has too much power. I'd like to help her, but I can't!"

Willie goes down to Maggie's cell and tells her, "Maggie, I've brought you some food". He notices that Maggie has something in her hands and asks, "What's that you're holding?" Maggie shows him it's a doll and explains, "I found it in here". Willie asks "You found it in HERE? What would a doll be doing in here?" and reaches out to examine it, but Maggie refuses to let him touch it. Willie tells Maggie to eat her food. Maggie replies, "I'm not hungry". Willie tells her, "At least drink the milk". Maggie reaches out for it, but suddenly Willie shouts, "NO! DON'T DRINK IT!" Maggie asks, "Why not?" Willie replies, "It's poisoned". Maggie asks, "Poisoned?" Willie replies, "Yes. I wanted you to die an easy death. Barnabas is planning to kill you tonight. I wanted your death to be easy". He tells her, "I'll leave it to you how you want to die. I'll let you decide" and turns to leave. Maggie begs, "Help me!" Willie tells her, "There's nothing I can do". Maggie says, "You can let me escape". Willie replies, "I can't. There's nothing I can do for you" and leaves.

Maggie stares at the glass of milk. Suddenly, she hears a flute playing, "London Bridge". She looks up and sees the little girl in the cell with her playing a flute. The girl asks, "Why are you crying? You mustn't cry. Only babies do that". She notices that Maggie is holding her doll and exclaims, You found my doll! I thought I had lost it!" Maggie begs, "You must help me! You must tell someone I'm locked in here so they can get me. My father, tell him. His name is Sam Evans. You've got to help me! If I stay in here, I'll die! Please help me!" The girl asks, "How?" Maggie replies, "Tell me how to get out of here!". The girl tells her, "I'm not supposed to". Maggie asks, "Why not?" The girl replies, "It's a secret. If I tell anyone, I'll be punished. My father said I couldn't tell anyone, not even my brother. I'm not supposed to know about, but I found out". Maggie begs, "You have to, or I'll die. Do you want me to die?" The little girl replies, "No." Maggie asks, "Isn't there anything you can tell me?" The girl replies, "I can tell you a riddle. It tells the way to get out":

One, two, away they flew.
Three, four, near the door.
Five, six, count the bricks.
Seven, eight, the clue is great.
Nine, ten, home again".

Maggie is puzzled. She looks out the window to see if anyone is coming. But when she turns back, the little girl is gone...

Sam is at the Evan's cottage working on a painting. He looks up and is surprised to see a little girl in the room. He asks, "Hello, where'd you come from?" The girl replies, "Outside". Sam remarks, "I thought I had locked the door. Guess I didn't". He asks the girl, "Looking for someone?" The girl replies, "A man named Sam Evans". Sam replies, "I'm Sam Evans. What do you want?". Instead of answering, the girl gestures towards the paintings lying about and asks, "You painted all of these pictures?" Sam replies, "Yes I did". The girl remarks, "They're very pretty". Sam jokes, "You want to commission a painting?" The girl exclaims, delighted, "A painting? Of me?" Sam tells her, "Well, maybe a whole painting would be too much. Would you settle for a sketch?" He picks up a pencil and a pad and starts to make a sketch of her. He asks, "What's your name?" The girl replies, "Sarah". Sam asks, "You live around here?". The girl replies, "I went away for a long time, but now I'm back". Sam remarks on the girls unusual dress and asks, "Are all the other little girls wearing dresses like that now?" The girl replies, "I don't know. I don't play with other little girls. Do you have a little girl?" Sam replies, "I have a big girl. Her name is Maggie". The girl asks, "Where is she?" Sam replies, sadly, "I don't know. I've looked everywhere for her but can't find her". The little girl asks, "Have you looked for her on the beach? Have you looked for her on the beach below Widow's Hill?" Sam replies, "No". The girl asks, "Why?" Sam replies, "Because I know I won't find her there". The girl tells him, "If you look for her there tonight, I'll bet you you'll find her there!" Sam tells the girl, "I'm almost finished. All I have to do is fill in the nose now". He looks down and does so. He says, "There!" and looks up, but is surprised to find that the little girl is gone.

In her cell, Maggie is trying to figure out what the little girl's riddle means. "Three, four, door. Something next to the door. But what? Five, six, count the bricks. From where? Five, six, Great. Great. That means big, large, important. The clue is large... That makes no sense, no sense at all!" Meanwhile, the sun goes down. In his coffin, Barnabas opens his eyes.

Maggie continues to try to think. "The clue is great. GRATE?" She suddenly realizes that the word in the riddle might not have been "great", but "grate". She looks at a ventilation grate high on one wall of the cell. Meanwhile, Barnabas arises and gets out of his coffin.

Maggie hears footsteps coming down the stairs and becomes desperate. She thinks, "Five, six, count the bricks..." and counts six rows of bricks down from the grate. She tests the bricks in this row and finds that the leftmost one seem loose. She presses this brick and the wall swings open inward, revealing a secret passage behind it. She goes in.

Barnabas gets to the cell and goes in. He is surprised to find Maggie isn't there. He calls, "Maggie? MAGGIE!", then notices the open wall. He too goes in.

Maggie is wandering in a labyrinth of secret passages. Barnabas too, is in the secret passages. Finally, Maggie finds herself in a room with two doors. She tries one and finds it locked. She tries the other and finds that it too is locked. Somewhere behind her, Barnabas shouts, "Maggie Evans! I can hear you! I know you're very close! You can't escape! You can never escape!"

My name is Victoria Winters. Nightfall has come to Collinwood, and a cold mist blows in from the sea. A mist that clings to everything it touches, and hides unexplainable horrors that stalk the Earth. In the subterranean depths of a deserted old house, there is a girl who dreads the approaching nightfall for it brings a promise of death. Yet hidden within, there is an unexpected hope of escape.

Maggie hears Barnabas approaching. Suddenly, the door that did not open just a moment ago opens all by itself. The sound of a flute playing "London Bridge is heard playing. Maggie exclaims, "The little girl! She's calling me!" She goes through the door. Barnabas continues to follow. Maggie continues to go through the secret passages. At one point, there are several paths. Maggie hears the flute playing, and chooses that path. Finally, Maggie exclaims, "I see a light!" She goes towards it and finds herself outside. She goes a little distance ahead through some rocks and finds herself on the beach. She exclaims, "I'm free!" and collapses. Moments later, there is the sound of someone walking through the sand. It's Barnabas. He growls, "Did you really think you could escape me? I told you you could never escape! Come!" Maggie doesn't move. Barnabas shouts, "I told you, come!" and bends over to pick her up. Maggie screams, "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" A voice shouts, "Who is it? What's going on down there?" Barnabas flees. Sam runs toward where he heard the sound and finds Maggie lying there. He exclaims, "Maggie! Maggie! It's you! You're breathing! You're alive! Maggie? Don't you recognize me? Don't You see me? Don't you hear me? Maggie? Why don't you say something?", but Maggie just lies there, not responding From behind some rocks, Barnabas watches...

Maggie has been brought to a room in the hospital. Sam and Dr. Woodard are in the room with her. Sam asks, "How long is she going to be like this?" Dr. Woodard replies, "It could be a matter of minutes, hours, even days..." Joe Haskell comes into the room. Dr. Woodard asks Sam, "I thought I told you not to tell anyone about this!" Sam replies, "I thought he should know". Joe touches Maggie gently, but she recoils. Joe asks, "Why?" Dr. Woodard explains, "It's probably because someone frightened her. A sudden touch brings back bad memories of her captivity". Woodard asks Sam, "Could you fill me in on what happened? You said you found her on a deserted stretch of beach. How did you happen to be there?" Sam replies, "You wouldn't believe me. A little girl told me, a strange little girl who appeared in my living room as I was painting". Woodard asks, "Appeared?" Sam explains, "Yes. I was painting, and I looked up and there she was". After Sam recounts the story, Dr. Woodard remarks, "It seems to me it would be helpful if we could find this little girl. Did she tell you her name, Sam?". Sam replies, "Only her first name, Sarah". Dr. Woodard asks, "Do you still have the sketch you made of her?". Maggie stirs and says, "Sarah?" Sam quickly goes to her and asks, "Do you recognize me?" Maggie replies, "Papa! Papa! I want my doll". Sam takes the doll, which is lying on a table, and gives it to Maggie, explaining, "She had it with her when I found her". Maggie asks Sam, "When are we going?" Sam, puzzled, asks, "Going where?" Maggie replies, "To the fair! You said we'd go!" Sam replies, "Yes. We're going to the fair". Dr. Woodard asks, "Sam. What are you talking about?" Sam tells the doctor quietly, "I promised to take her to the fair once, but something came up at the last moment and we couldn't go. But that was a long time ago. She wasn't even 10 years old then". Joe asks, "Can I try?" Dr. Woodard replies, "Go ahead". Joe asks Maggie, "Hello, Maggie". Maggie asks, "Who are you?" Joe asks, "Don't you recognize me?" Maggie replies, "No". Joe tells her, "I'm Joe". Maggie asks, "Joe? I don't know any Joe. Are we friends?" Joe sadly replies, "Yes we are. Very good friends". Maggie asks, "Do you want to hold my doll? I only let my friends hold it". Joe takes the doll. Dr. Woodard tells Sam and Joe to come into the next room with him, saying he wants to talk to them.

In the next room, Dr. Woodard tells them, "I don't want Maggie to hear us". Sam asks, "What's wrong with her, Doctor? She's acting as if she were 10 years old!". Dr. Woodard replies, "I'm no psychologist, but I think she's trying to block something out, something so terrible her mind can't cope with it. She's reverting to a past where she feels safe. I think as she feels safer and safer, she'll slowly come out of it. Right now, I'm more concerned about her safety than he mental condition. The madman who kidnapped her is still out here". Sam says, "I'll hire some security guards right away!" Dr. Woodard tells him, "I have a better idea. I think we should make it known that Maggie Evans is dead. I think I can I can arrange it so that everyone believes it, including the person who kidnapped her. That's the only way we can make sure she'll be safe". Joe asks, "How will we keep her in the hospital without word leaking out? The nurses, the orderlies, they'll all know and word is sure to get out". Woodard replies, "We won't be keeping her in this hospital. I was thinking of moving her to a hospital about 100 miles north of here. It's run by Dr. Julia Hoffman. That's the Dr. Hoffman I was going to have look at those slides. She's already extremely interested in this case and I think I can get her to cooperate". He tells Sam and Joe, "We three and Dr. Hoffman must be the only ones who know Maggie is alive." Joe and Sam agree to keep Maggie a secret. Woodard remarks, "As far as the rest of the world is concerned, Maggie Evans is dead".

Joe and Sam go back into Maggie's room. Sam tells Maggie, "Maggie, I want to tell you something. You're going to take trip". Maggie asks, "Are you coming with me?" Sam replies, "No, but there'll be a lot of nice people there to take care of you. You'll like it. You'll be safe". Maggie asks, "Safe?" Joe replies, "Safer than you've ever been before..."

Barnabas comes to the hospital. He asks the receptionist, "Excuse me, I believe a Miss Evans was brought here tonight. May I ask what room she's in?" The receptionist replies, "She's in room 305, but she's not allowed any visitors". Barnabas asks, "May I ask how she is?" Doctor Woodard comes into the room. The nurse tells Barnabas, "Here's the doctor. You can ask him". Dr. Woodard, seeing Barnabas, asks, "Mr. Collins. What are you doing here?" Barnabas replies, "I heard rumors that Miss Evans was found and brought here". Woodard asks, "Who did you hear this from?" Barnabas replies, "Several people. The whole town's talking about it. How is she?" Woodard replies, "I regret to tell you Maggie Evans is dead. When he father found her, she was in a severe state of shock. She never came out of it". Barnabas asks, "And she never told anyone what happened to her?" Woodard replies, "She never spoke a word". Barnabas remarks, "Then no one will ever know what happened to her". Woodard replies, "No, no one will ever know". Barnabas remarks, "What a tragic loss for Mr. Evans". He tells Woodard, "Please extend my deepest condolences to him, and tell him he can come to me if he needs anything. I'll be glad help in any way I can", says goodbye and leaves.

Note: First anniversary of Dark Shadows!
(The part of Burke Devlin will be played by Anthony George).

My name is Victoria Winters. The cliffs that lead from Collinwood to the sea have stood for centuries. The sound of the sea is a primeval whisper tempting us to think the world will never change. But we cannot forget the real world, is a changing world, full of knowledge, love, and loss.

In the drawing room at Collinwood, Vicki finishes talking on the phone in the drawing room and hangs up. Elizabeth comes into the room and asks, "Vicki, when you have a chance, can you come see me in the study?", then, noticing that something is wrong, asks, "Vicki. What's the matter?" Vicki tearfully replies, "I never thought it would happen. I always had hope. Joe Haskell just called. Maggie Evans. They've found her..." Elizabeth asks, "When? Where?" Vicki replies, She's dead!". Elizabeth offers her condolences, "I can't tell you how sorry I am".

Elizabeth gives Vicki some tea to calm her down. Vicki takes a sip then reminisces, "Maggie was my first friend in Collinsport. I met her in the coffee shop when I got off the train. She was so warm and friendly. I wish I had the chance to say goodbye, but I won't get the chance. There isn't going to be a funeral". Elizabeth asks, "No funeral?" Vicki replies, "No. Her father felt that too many people would show up out of curiosity". Elizabeth asks, "Anything I can do?" Vicki replies, "Oh, when you came in here you said you wanted to talk to me about something". Elizabeth replies, "No, it hardly seems important now", but Vicki insists she tell her. Elizabeth tells her, "There's something I want to ask you. I want you to feel free to say no. I going to have to have a legal witness when I get married." Vicki remarks, "I see. Wouldn't Roger be the logical choice?" Elizabeth tells her, "I don't have the courage to ask him". Vicki tells her, "I wasn't going to be there". Elizabeth asks, "Why not?" Vicki explains, "There's this moment where this minister asks if anyone has any objection to the marriage. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to keep silent". Elizabeth exclaims, "You promised not to say a word to anyone about what I told you!" Vicki tells her she intends to keep her promise. She asks Elizabeth if it might not be better to tell Carolyn the truth, saying, "There must be more to it than just that you killed him. I'm sure there must have been justifying circumstances. I'm sure Carolyn will understand". Elizabeth replies that there were justifying circumstances, but disagrees that Carolyn will understand and tells Vicki she will not tell her. Elizabeth tells Vicki, "If your conscience won't let you participate in the ceremony, I suppose I'll ask someone else", but Vicki replies, "I'll think about it. I'll tell you later today".

Vicki comes out into the foyer, carrying the tea things, and sees Carolyn there, dressed to go out, and asks, "Going out?" Carolyn sarcastically remarks, "No, I'm dressed up like this for 3:00 tea, but I see I've missed it. Yes, I'm going out with Buzz". Vicki asks, "Could I talk to you for a minute? Carolyn, Maggie Evans is dead". Carolyn moans, "Oh, no! How did it happen?" Vicki tells her the story Joe told her. Carolyn offers her condolences, saying, "You were very good friends with her, weren't you, Vicki?" But when Vicki sees that Carolyn is going to go out anyway, she gets very upset. Vicki accuses her of going out with Buzz just to get back at her mother. She tries to tell Carolyn Elizabeth has a good reason for doing what she's doing, but cannot tell her the truth.

Vicki and Burke go to the beach. Vicki asks Burke, "How far do you think we've walked?" Burke replies, "About three miles". Vicki points at a ship in the distance and asks, "What's that?" Burke replies, "Probably a freighter". Vicki starts to wax philosophical, "Look at our footsteps. Soon, the waves will wash them out, and the beach will be as smooth as it was as if were never here, as if we had never existed..." The conversation turns to Maggie. Vicki says, "We loved her and we'll try not to forget her". Burke remarks, "I wonder if Woodard will find out exactly what happened to Maggie Evans". Vicki replies, "That doesn't matter anymore. She's dead". Burke disagrees, "It does matter. The madman who did that to her still out there. He might do it again". Vicki replies, "Yes, you're right. I hope he's caught, but I don't care right now. I know I should, but I just don't". Burke tells her, "That madman must be caught. I hope he's caught and gets what he deserves". Vicki starts to get philosophical again, "Maybe if he's really mad, he can't really help what he's doing". Burke asks, "There's something else on your mind. What is it?" Vicki replies, "Can't we just sit here?" Burke replies, "Sure. If that's what you want. Liz is really going to marry Jason McGuire, isn't she?" Vicki replies, "Yes. In a few days". Burke remarks, "And there's nothing you can do to stop her, and there's nothing you can do to stop Carolyn either. Poor Vicki. You really have the whole world coming down around you". Vicki notes, "The freighter's gone over the horizon. It almost feels like we're the only two people in the whole world. So calm and peaceful. I wish it could be like this forever". Burke replies, "You'd get bored of it after awhile", then tells Vicki, "We'd better start back. It's going to be getting dark soon". Vicki remarks, "Maybe that's the way it should always be. Quiet, peaceful, dark..."

Elizabeth is in the foyer of Collinwood. There is the noise of a motorcycle outside. Carolyn comes in with Buzz. Buzz looks irritated. He asks Carolyn, "First you say you want to make the scene, then you say you don't!" Carolyn says to Elizabeth, "Hi, mother. Buzz and I decided to spend a quiet evening at home". Buzz start to complain, "But I had plans for the evening!" Carolyn says, "Let's do it tomorrow night". Buzz replies, "But these plans won't keep!" Vicki returns home. Carolyn tells Buzz to go home, saying she just isn't in the mood to see him tonight. She tells him she'll meet him tomorrow. Buzz replies, "Maybe I will, and maybe I won't!" and leaves, angrily saying, "You're really taking a chance!", implying he might not come back to her. Carolyn remarks, "I'm a little tired tonight." Vicki tells Carolyn, "Carolyn, I'm glad you decided to stay home tonight". Carolyn replies, "Don't let it give you any ideas. I haven't changed my mind about Buzz. I'm still going to see him". She explains, "I saw Joe Haskell. He was walking down he road. We passed him on the motorcycle. He looked so sad. It made me not feel like tooling around on a motorcycle tonight". Elizabeth snidely remarks, "It's good to see you still have SOME feeling left". Carolyn snaps, "I don't even feel like arguing with you tonight!" and goes upstairs.

Vicki again tells Elizabeth to tell Carolyn the truth, saying, "I'm sure she'll understand", but Elizabeth replies, "I can't! I told you I can't tell her. Now please stop!" She tells Vicki, "I can see you're not going to be my witness at the wedding. I'll go and ask Roger". Vicki replies, "No, that won't be necessary. I'll come to the wedding, and I'll consider it an honor to stand by you".

My name is Victoria Winters. A moment ago, a gull circled the sky over Collinwood, scanning the sea below for food on which its survival depends. Its eye briefly caught a flash of silver in the morning sunlight. It swooped to the sea, only to be caught up in a tidal wave and carried to a watery grave. There is a moment before disaster strikes, a quiet moment. But there is terror in the silence. For the rush of destruction is to follow in its wake. For one girl this is such a moment. And her heart is numb with fear.

It is the next morning. Carolyn is standing by the window in the drawing room looking at the morning paper with a very worried look on her face. Vicki comes into the room and calls out, "Carolyn", but Carolyn doesn't reply. Vicki tries again, "Carolyn?" Still getting no response, she asks, "Carolyn, didn't you hear me?" Carolyn replies, "I guess not. I was thinking". Vicki asks, "About what?" Carolyn replies, "Have you seen the morning paper yet?" Vicki replies, "Not yet". Carolyn tells her, "Another girl was attacked last night". Vicki exclaims, "Another girl?! I thought that was over!" Carolyn replies, "Apparently, the madman is still around, and while he is, no one is safe". Vicki moans, "The police have got to catch him!". Carolyn asks, "What if they don't?" Vicki says, "They've have to!". Carolyn tells her, "I had a dream last night. I dreamt who his next victim would be". Vicki asks, "Who?" Carolyn replies, "Me!". She explains, "It was a terrible dream. I was in a dark, desolate place. I knew someone was near me, but I couldn't see him. Suddenly, a hand reached out of the darkness and grabbed me. I tried to scream, but I couldn't. I was too frightened to even scream". Vicki tells her, "Carolyn, it's perfectly natural for you to have a dream like that after hearing about Maggie Evans". Carolyn says, "Poor Maggie". Vicki says, "I've tried, but I haven't been able to think about anything else. I think I'll go see Mr. Evans today and see if there's anything I can do for him". Carolyn replies, "I think I'll go talk to Joe". Vicki notes, "This is the first time we've been able to talk without arguing for a long time". Carolyn replies, "We're still friends, and friends shouldn't argue, so let's not talk about Buzz, or Jason McGuire, or my mother's wedding". However, Vicki tells Carolyn, "There's one thing I've got to tell you. Your mother asked me to be her witness at her wedding, and I said yes". Carolyn, suddenly becoming angry, shouts, "So, you're going to be part of the wedding ceremony. It seems like you've become a second daughter to her! I'm very happy for you!". Vicki tells her, "You shouldn't act this way". Carolyn asks, "What way?" Vicki accuses Carolyn of going out with Buzz just to get back at her mother, saying, "You wouldn't even look at Buzz except to upset your mother!" Carolyn tells Vicki, "From now on, leave me alone! Just leave me alone! I'm not asking you for advice and I don't want any!"

At the Evan's cottage, Sam Evans is talking on the phone. He tells Dr. Woodard, "Nobody's here. We can talk. No improvement, huh?". There's a knock at the door. Sam tells Woodard, "Someone's at the door. Better go now. I'll call you later" and hangs up. Sam answers the door. It's Vicki. Vicki tells Sam, "I came by because I wanted to see if there's anything I could do". Sam replies, "No, that's very kind of you". Vicki offers her condolences and asks, "Mr. Evans, I was wondering, would you like me to dispose of Maggie's things for you? I thought they'd be a constant reminder to you of things you'd rather forget", but Sam tells her, "I don't want to forget Maggie!" Vicki apologizes, "That's not what I meant..." Sam replies, "I understand. No, I want to keep everything in this house the way it was when Maggie was alive". He pauses then says, "Vicki, you were very fond of Maggie, weren't you?" Vicki replies, "Yes. She was my friend, my very first friend in Collinsport". Sam stutters, "I... I..." as if trying to say something, but ends up just saying, "Thanks for stopping by, Vicki".

A seagull is perched high atop a pole at the docks. Nearby Joe Haskell is at a pier eating a sandwich and drinking coffee from a thermos top, staring thoughtfully out at the ocean. Carolyn comes by and tells him, "I've been looking for you. They told me you'd be out here". Joe remarks, "I spend a lot of lunch hours here". Carolyn replies, "Yes, I know. I used to meet you here often." She muses, "That seems like a thousand years ago. Hard to believe it's only been a year". Joe replies, "A lot can happen in a year". Carolyn offers her condolences about Maggie. Joe tells her he'd prefer not to talk about Maggie. He pours her a cup of coffee and remarks, "I heard you're getting married". Carolyn asks, "How'd you know?" Joe replies, "It's all over town". Carolyn tells him, "Buzz and I are engaged. We're going to have a ball when we're married". Seeing the look on Joe's face, She remarks, "You disapprove". Joe replies, "It's not up to me to approve or disapprove." Carolyn apologizes, "Sorry to talk about me when I came here to talk about Maggie. I wish I could be as brave as you. I'd go to pieces if someone I loved died. You wouldn't go to pieces if your mother was going to marry someone you disapproved of". Joe asks, "Are you getting involved with someone she doesn't approve of just to hurt her?" Carolyn denies this. Joe tells her that if she really loves Buzz, she should marry him, but if she's just dating him to get back at her mother, it would be a bad choice. He tells her the decision is up to her. Carolyn tells him, "I wish I could do something for you, Joe. Call me if you need anything. Goodbye". Joe replies, "So long" and Carolyn leaves.

Carolyn returns to Collinwood. She asks Vicki, "How's Mr. Evans?" Vicki replies, "All right, considering the circumstances. Did you see Joe?" Carolyn replies, "Yes". Vicki asks, "How is he?" Carolyn replies, "I admire him more than ever. The whole world is falling down around him, and he's taking it so well". Carolyn apologizes for getting into a fight with her, then suddenly gets a funny look on her face when she sees some flowers in a vase on a table. Vicki asks, "What's the matter?" Carolyn replies, "Those flowers. I didn't notice them there before. You know what they are? They're violets, Mother's favorite. They're Jason's gift to mother. He has some put there every day. Jason's very romantic. At least Mother thinks so". Carolyn, now clearly upset, starts to leave. Vicki asks, "Where are you going?" Carolyn replies, "OUT! To find Buzz. And if Mother asks, tell her I'll be out late - very late, if she cares!"

Joe and Sam are at the Evan's cottage. Sam tells Joe, "I talked to Dr. Woodard on the phone. He said Dr. Hoffman had her first session with Maggie this morning, but he said it's too early to expect any change. He told me it was very important that we keep up this act that Maggie is dead." He adds, "It's hard. Vicki Winters came here this morning and I came THIS close to telling her", holding his thumb and forefinger half an inch apart. Joe replies, "Yeah, I talked to Carolyn. I felt like a fraud when she told me how sorry she felt for me". Sam remarks, "Maybe it wouldn't hurt to tell just those two. Vicki's trustworthy...", but Joe warns him, "No, Sam, we can't tell anybody. Word might get out, and if the madman gets hold of it..." Sam replies, "You're right. If we could only find the man who did this, whoever he is!"

My name is Victoria Winters. A tangled web of deception is being spun at Collinwood. Lips have been sealed because the truth will imperil others. But there is one who has brought his devious plans to the point of fruition, and he is determined not to allow anything to happen that might prevent him from achieving his goal.

Jason walks into the drawing room. Roger is sitting on the couch reading the newspaper. Jason, seeing Roger, says, "Oh, Roger. Good Evening". Roger does not answer. Jason says again, "I said, Good Evening". Roger replies, very coldly, "I heard you". Jason remarks, "At first, I thought there was something wrong with your hearing". Roger replies, "It's not my hearing I'm having problems with". Jason says, "Oh, so that's how it's going to be". Roger gets up to leave. Jason says, "I hope you're not leaving on my account". Roger replies, "Yes". Jason remarks, "I hope that's not how you feel. I'm going to be your brother in law soon". Roger snaps, "Not yet and not if I can do anything about it!" Jason pours himself a drink and laughs. Roger remarks, "You seem to find humor in everything". Jason replies, "Yes, especially hollow threats. If there were anything you could do, you'd have done it already. If you continue to oppose me, you might find yourself on the short end of Collinwood". Roger replies, "For your information preventative measures are already being taken. Papers are being drawn to keep you from taking over the estate and business". Jason replies, "That's a two step process. Step one is getting the papers drawn. Step two is getting them signed. You're going to find that step one is much easier than step two" and laughs.

At the old house, Willie comes up from the basement and tells Barnabas, who's looking out the window, "Barnabas, it's all taken care of down there". Barnabas asks, "There's no trace that Miss Evans was ever down there?" Willie replies, "No, I've cleaned it all up". Seeing that Barnabas is staring out the window, Willie asks, "What's the matter?" Barnabas replies, "I thought I saw a child out there. It might have been David". Willie asks, "What do we do now that Maggie Evans is dead?" Barnabas replies nonchalantly, "There's nothing we can do". He muses, "She seemed all right. I wonder what she died of". Willie complains, "We're the cause. I've done some rotten things in my life, but THIS..." Barnabas warns him, "Watch it, Willie. You're going too far. If you don't want to work for me anymore, you know the alternative. Your life is hanging by a thread, and you're putting a lot of strain on that thread!" He tells him, "I want you to forget Miss Evans. Now I want you to go out and look around. I'm sure I saw someone out there". Willie leaves, remarking, still rather defiantly, "I'll try not to think, I'll try not to think about who your next victim will be".

Roger shows up at the old house. Barnabas offers him some Amontillado. Roger tells Barnabas, "I had to get out of the house. The situation at Collinwood has gotten unbearable." He tells Barnabas how much Elizabeth's upcoming marriage to Jason McGuire is distressing him. He tells Barnabas, "There doesn't seem to be any affection between them. I think he has some sort of hold over her". Barnabas asks, "Any idea what it might be?" Roger replies, "We've tried to find out, but without any luck". Barnabas agrees that Jason McGuire is not someone to be trusted. Roger adds, "Carolyn's gone completely off the deep end. She's now engaged to the one of the most disreputable characters in the whole county". Barnabas volunteers to talk to Elizabeth, but Roger tells him, "No, that won't do any good". He tells Barnabas that if this goes on, Jason might eventually gain control over both the estate and Collins Enterprises. He tells him, "The lawyers are drawing up papers to prevent this, but McGuire has hinted that he could do something to prevent them from being signed. If he can, we're all going to be at his mercy. I wish someone could do something about this". Barnabas remarks, "I think I'll have a talk with Mr. McGuire..."

Willie is searching around outside. Suddenly, he is startled by a voice calling, "Hello!" He turns and sees a little girl standing there. He asks, "What are you doing here?" The girl replies, "I'm looking for someone to play with, but I can't find anyone". Willie tells her, "It's late. You'd better get out of here". The girl remarks, "I don't live far from here." Willie tells her, "You'd better go home. Your mother and father are probably looking for you". The little girl replies, "I can't find them. I've been looking for them for a long time, but I can't find them". Willie, puzzled, remarks, "I don't understand. Go play somewhere else. Go away and go away now! It's not safe to play here. Where do you live?" The little girls points at the old house and says, "Over there". Willie replies, "No, that's impossible. That's the old house. Mr. Collins lives there. Now come on. I'll take you back into town." The little girl points at the old house again and insists, "I live THERE", but Willie, convinced she must really be from town, turns and says, "Come on, follow me. I'll take you back into town". He turns around and exclaims, "Hey! Little girl! Where are you, little girl?" The little girl is gone.

Barnabas and Roger go to Collinwood. Roger says, "I'll look upstairs" and goes upstairs. Barnabas goes into the drawing room and finds Jason in there sitting on the sofa enjoying a drink. Barnabas remarks, "I see you're appreciating the comforts here". Jason replies, "These are very comfortable surroundings". Barnabas remarks, "I understand there's going to be a change in family relationships". Jason replies, "Well put. There's going to be a marriage, and it promises to be a happy event". Barnabas remarks, "Does it". Jason replies, "Yes it does, and I intend to take every measure to ensure that it is. Marriage means a chance of happiness for your cousin". Barnabas remarks, "It's not my business, but I'm concerned about your motives. There are certain things in your past that give me pause." Jason challenges Barnabas, "If you have anything to say, go say it to the Sheriff!" and tells him, "I've been taking a long, hard look at YOU, and I've been wondering, just who are you and what do you do?" He remarks, "You've hired my ex-friend, the very description of an unscrupulous person. Why? Are you someone who needs the services of an unscrupulous person? Mr. Collins, what IS your business? Where do you get your money? Where do you go every day? Come to think of it, I've never seen you in the daytime. You're a very interesting man, Mr. Collins, and I'm beginning to get very interested in you."

Barnabas, having had no luck in talking to Jason, returns to the old house. He tells Willie, "I've just returned from talking to your friend Jason. He's beginning to ask a lot of questions. If he's not careful, he could find himself in serious trouble" Willie tells him, "He's just full of bluff. You were right. There was someone outside. A little girl. A strange little girl. She seemed to have no sense of direction. When I asked her where she lived, she pointed to this house..."

My name is Victoria Winters. A morning wind has cleared the nighttime mist that shrouded Collinwood and seen from the cliffs the sea and the sky share a summer blue that obscured the far horizon. Hinting perhaps that the boundary dividing Earth and Heaven has been dissolved. But other boundaries remain, the boundaries that separate a tormented father from his daughter, the boundaries of knowledge that separate mystery from truth, and the boundaries within the mind that separate a young woman from herself.

In a darkened room at a hospital 100 miles to the north of Collinsport, a woman doctor is shining a small flashlight into Maggie's eyes. She asks Maggie, "Can you hear my voice? Don't answer, just nod". Maggie nods. The doctor asks, "Raise your right hand". Maggie starts to raise her left hand. The doctor corrects her, "No, your right hand". Maggie puts her left hand back down and raises her right hand. The doctor asks, "Do you know who is speaking? What is my name?" Maggie starts to say, haltingly, "Dr... Dr..." The doctor finishes for her, "Dr. Hoffman". Maggie echoes, "Dr. Hoffman". Dr. Hoffman asks Maggie, "Do you know YOUR name?" Maggie covers her face in fear.

Sam and Dr. Woodard are at the Evan's cottage. Sam complains to Woodard, "You mean I can't even see my own daughter? I haven't even had word of how she is!" Woodard replies, "Dr. Hoffman is not a very communicative person. She's a little unusual as doctors go." Sam remarks, "Maybe too unusual". Woodard explains, "She'd have to be unusual to treat Maggie. Her case is unusual. I give you my word. Dr. Hoffman is the best doctor for Maggie." Sam insists, "I've got to see Maggie!". Woodard recommends against it, saying, "You'd remind her of the present. That might not be good. She's too afraid of the present right now". Sam insists on seeing her. Woodard continues to think up excuses, "But Windcliff Hospital is 100 miles away!", but Sam insists. Finally, Woodard gives in and tells Sam, "All right, I'll call Dr. Hoffman". Sam replies, "No. Don't do that". Woodard asks, "Why not?" Sam replies, "Because I know she'll say no. If we're already there, she'll have a harder time saying no". He tells Woodard Joe's coming too. Sam asks, "Is there any OTHER reason you don't want us going up there, something at Windcliff you don't want us to see?" Woodard denies that there is.

Joe is driving Sam up to Windcliff. Sam tells Joe about Woodard's reluctance to let them go to Windcliff to see Maggie. Joe tells Sam he's afraid it isn't such a good idea to go see Maggie.

Dr. Woodard, who's driven up to Windcliff by himself, is arguing with Dr. Julia Hoffman about the advisability of letting Joe and Sam see Maggie. Finally, Dr. Hoffman picks up the phone and speaks into it, "Would you ask Mr. Evans and Mr. Haskell to come in, please?" A few seconds later, Sam and Joe come into the office. Sam demands, "I want to see my daughter!" Dr. Hoffman replies, "I think it can be arranged. I warn you, it may be painful for both you and your daughter. I just want you to be prepared for what might happen". Sam asks, "What could happen?" Dr. Hoffman replies, "I don't know". Dr. Hoffman calls a nurse to take Sam and Joe up to see Maggie. Dr. Woodard stays, telling Sam and Joe, "I want to talk to Dr. Hoffman". After the nurse comes and takes Sam and Joe away, Woodard asks Hoffman, "You mean you don't know what's going to happen and you let them up there?" Dr. Hoffman replies, "I know exactly what's going to happen. She's going to be terrified". Woodard, shocked, asks, "Any you let them go?!" Dr. Hoffman replies, "Yes. It'll keep them from meddling in the future". Dr. Woodard is shocked at how cold she is. Hoffman replies, "I don't care about them. I only care about the patient, and the truth".

The nurse goes into the Maggie's room and tells Maggie, "You have visitors. Your father and a Mr. Haskell. Would you like to see them?" Maggie does not reply. The nurse brings Sam and Joe in. Sam and Joe try to talk to Maggie, but Maggie doesn't respond at all. Noticing that she's still clutching the doll she was found with, Sam reminisces, "Do you remember the doll you used to have when you were little? You called it Cassandra. You used to get so angry when your mother and I called it Sandy", but Maggie does not respond. She gets up, wanders over to a window barred with wire mesh and starts to sing, "London Bridge". She starts to get upset when she gets to the line, "Take the key and lock her up, lock her up, lock her up..." Sam tries to calm her down, grasping her arm gently and saying, "There's nothing to be afraid of", but Maggie becomes terrified, tears free and runs off. The nurse grabs Maggie and tries to calm her down. The nurse tells Sam and Joe, "I think you'd better go now". Sam and Joe leave.

Down in Dr. Hoffman's office, Dr. Woodard tells Dr. Hoffman, "The police still haven't come up with any clues. They haven't even come up with the girl in Sam's sketch. I was hoping you would come up with something". Dr. Hoffman explains, "It takes time. You still have faith in my competence, don't you?". Woodard replies, "No question about that. Have you found any hint of what's wrong?" Hoffman replies, "Yes". Woodard asks, "Are you going to tell me?" Hoffman replies, "Not at this time". Woodard asks, "Have you shown Maggie the sketch of the girl her father made?" Hoffman replies, "All in good time". Woodard asks, "Have you gone on with an examination of Maggie's blood?" Hoffman replies, "Certainly". Dr. Woodard remarks on what he saw earlier, about the "unholy union" going on in Maggie's blood. He asks, "Have you been able to come up with a more accurate diagnosis than that?" Dr. Hoffman replies, "Decidedly". Dr. Woodard asks, "Can you tell me what it is?" Hoffman replies, "Not at this time". Woodard grumbles, "I knew you'd say that". Dr. Hoffman continues, "You said yourself it was an unholy union". Woodard tells her, "That was for lack of a better term!". Dr. Hoffman replies, "You may have unwittingly used the perfect term for it". Sam and Joe return. Dr. Hoffman remarks on how short their visit with Maggie was. Sam tells her, "It was too painful. I don't want to talk about it". Dr. Hoffman remarks, "Maybe you'll trust me in the future. Is that terrified creature you saw in there really your daughter? It was not. It may be a long time before you can see your daughter. Your absence may hasten that day". Sam and Joe leave, both looking upset. Woodard looks rather upset too. Julia tells him, "I apologize if I don't seem very sympathetic, but sometimes sympathy is a detriment to finding the truth, and it's the truth I'm interested in". She asks, "Any more questions?" Woodard replies, "Not at this time" in a mocking voice and leaves, still looking upset.

Joe is driving Sam back to Collinsport. Sam wonder, "I wonder what it was Dave didn't want me to see". Joe replies, "Maggie?" Sam says, "Or maybe it was Dr. Hoffman".

Once again, in a darkened room at Windcliff Hospital, Dr. Hoffman is shining a small flashlight into Maggie's eyes, asking, "What is my name?", but instead of answering, Maggie sings, "Lock her up, lock her up, lock her up, take the key and lock her up..."
