It is twilight, and the walls of Collinwood are bathed in a curious half-light. Soon, day will subside into night, but now they coexist. There are moments in time when the past and the present seem to coexist. Moments when the Land of the Living and the Land of the Dead seem to merge. For one man, this is such a moment.

Willie is in the living room of the old house dusting the chandelier. He glances out the window and is startled to see Sarah standing outside. He shouts, "Hey! Hey you!" and quickly runs out the front door. But Sarah is gone. Willie shouts, "Where are you? Where are you?" Barnabas comes running out and asks, "Who?" Willie replies, "Her! Sarah! I saw her out the window!" Barnabas notes, "She's not here now". Willie explains, "When I shouted at her, she disappeared, right into thin air!" Barnabas asks, "Are you sure?" Willie replies, "Positive". Barnabas asks, "Why would she appear to you and not to me?" Willie replies, "I don't know. I only know what I saw". They go inside. Barnabas asks, "Have you been talking to Dr. Hoffman? She claims she saw something last night". Barnabas accuses Willie of having heard of this and concocting this story up. Willie denies it and asks, "You're afraid, aren't you? Afraid that she'll come back and tell someone about you". Barnabas says, "She wouldn't do that. She loved me." Willie asks, "If she loved you so much, then why doesn't she appear to you?" Barnabas admits, "I don't know". Willie suggests, "Better find her before someone else does and she tells them the truth about you" He leaves. Barnabas whines, "Why doesn't she come to me? Where is she, where?"

In the drawing room at Collinwood, David is gazing into his crystal ball. Carolyn comes in and tells him, "Mrs. Johnson says dinner's almost ready. Go wash up". David replies, "I'm busy". Carolyn asks, "What's so important about looking into your crystal ball?" David replies, "I see things. Creepy things". Carolyn orders, "Get ready for dinner!" David promises, "As soon as I find out what I want to know". Carolyn asks, "What?" David replies, "Something important. I'm trying to find out where Sarah is. Wait! I think I see something! A shape! And I think I know what it means! I think I know where I can find Sarah!". Carolyn remarks, "David, I don't see anything". David says, "That's because you can't. I can. I know where to find Sarah. I've got to go, right now!" Carolyn tells him, "You're not going anywhere except dinner!" There's a knock at the front door. Carolyn tells David, "Now
go wash up!" and goes and answers the door. It's Joe. Carolyn exclaims, "Joe, this is a surprise!" Joe asks, "Is David here? I've got to talk to him. It's important." Carolyn takes Joe into the Drawing Room . David asks Joe, "Still looking for Sarah?" Joe replies, "Yes. We looked everywhere you told us to look and didn't find her. You said there was one other place. The Secret place." David says, "I can't tell you about that". Joe says, "You know what happened to Maggie. We need to track down the man who did that to her, and we think Sarah might be able to help. If you know where Sarah is, tell us, for Maggie's sake". David looks into his crystal ball and announces "She's playing at the secret place". Joe asks, "Tell us where that is". David says, "No! I can't! But there is something I can do. I can go there and bring her back here for you". Carolyn says, "No! I can't let David out by himself at this time of night to go after something he saw in a crystal ball!" Joe agrees, "I suppose you're right". Carolyn tells David, "Now go wash up and go to dinner!" David says, "Oh, OK" and goes into the foyer. As Joe tells Carolyn why it's important to find Sarah, David quietly puts on his coat and sneaks out the front door.

Meanwhile, Sarah is sitting on the steps of the Collins family mausoleum singing to her doll.

At the old house. Willie says to Barnabas, "You haven't said anything for a long time". Barnabas says, "She wouldn't betray me! She wouldn't! We must go out!" Willie asks, "Where?" Barnabas replies, "To find Sarah". Willie protests, "But we don't know where she is". Barnabas replies, "I know a logical place. Her final resting place. Her tomb". Willie points out, "But we've looked there before and she wasn't there". Barnabas suggests, "Perhaps she will sense my need for her and come to me". They leave.

David is at Eagle Hill cemetery. He calls out, "Sarah, Sarah! Are you here?" Suddenly, a voice answers, "Hello, I heard you calling me!" David turns and sees Sarah standing there. He exclaims, "I knew you'd be here! I saw you in my crystal ball!" Sarah says, "I'm glad you're here. There's no one to play with. I was getting lonesome". David tells her, " We can play later, there's something we have to do first. We have to go back to the house." Sarah replies, "I don't want to go to your house". David tells her, "We've got to. There's someone there who wants to talk to you, a good friend of Maggie Evan's. He thinks you know who kidnapped her". Sarah replies, "All I know is I have a friend named Maggie". David tells her, "That's what I told them, but they wouldn't believe me. Come back anyway and tells them yourself". Sarah says, "OK, but let's play first!" David agrees, "OK". They start to play catch. Sarah tosses the ball wildly. David misses catching it and, says, "Sarah!" in an exasperated tone, then goes into the bushes to find it. Finally, he finds it and comes back out. Sarah is gone...

Carolyn comes back into the drawing room. Joe asks, "Find him?" Carolyn replies, "Joe, he never went to dinner! Mrs. Johnson hasn't seen him!" Joe asks, "Could he be in his room?" Carolyn replies, "No, I looked there. I've looked everywhere and I can't find him!" Joe says, "This is a big house. He's got to be somewhere". Carolyn wonders, "You don't suppose he was so anxious to find his little friend Sarah he snuck out? I'm worried. He might be in some sort of danger".

David is looking around for Sarah. He goes into the Collins family tomb and announces, "I know where you're hiding!" He opens the door to the Secret Room and looks around inside. Nothing. He comes back out, stands on Naomi's sarcophagus, and prepares to close the secret panel. He is startled to hear voices outside the tomb.

Outside, Willie asks Barnabas, "Why stop?" Barnabas replies, "I sensed something, as though she were near by". Willie remarks, "Well, we'll know soon". They go inside the tomb. There is nothing there. The secret panel is shut and the room is empty. Willie remarks, "There's nothing here! Not a trace of her!" Barnabas says sadly, "I had hoped she'd be here. Where is she? Where?" Willie says, "Well, she's not here. Shall we go?"

Inside the secret room, David listens...

Barnabas and Willie turn to leave. Suddenly, Barnabas stops and says, "Wait! Open the panel! She might be in there!" David hears this. He quickly opens the coffin and hides inside. Willie opens the panel. He and Barnabas go in...

There is a stillness in the darkness that envelops Collinwood. But fear stalks the great house on this night. For a small boy has disappeared. And unknown to him, and those who would protect him, his life is in great danger.

Barnabas and Willie go into the Secret Room and close the secret door. They look around. There is nothing in there but the coffin.

Willie says, "See, she's not in here. Nothing's been disturbed. It never will be. No one's ever going to discover this place. Let's go." Barnabas remarks, "Your afraid of this place, afraid of death and dying. You're a coward, Willie". Willie retorts, "You're afraid of something too. You're afraid of HER". Barnabas replies, "No! She'd never try to harm me! She was a gentle child who loved me above everyone else. She never wanted to harm any creature. Once we had a dog that got old and had to be put out of its misery. She was inconsolable. Night after night, she would cry herself to sleep in my arms. Let's go". Willie doesn't budge. Barnabas asks, "Why are you hesitating?" Willie says, "Listen!" Barnabas asks, "What?" Willie replies, "It's gone now. I thought I heard something." Barnabas says, "You amuse me, Willie. You know the contents of this room and it's effecting your imagination. Open the, panel, Willie". Willie bends down, slides the stone forming the left edge of the second step over, reaches inside, and twists something. The secret door opens. Willie pushes the stone back into place then they leave, closing the door behind them.

David, having heard Barnabas and Willie leave, gets out of the coffin. He goes and tries to put his fingers into the crack of the secret door, but can't open it!

The clock in the foyer strikes 9:45. Carolyn is pacing around, fretting about David. Joe comes into the room. Carolyn asks, "Find anything?" Joe replies, "No, I've even searched the entire East wing. Nothing at all. He's not in this house". Carolyn moans, "He's somewhere out there, I know it! I feel responsible for this! Vicki left him in my care, and this happens!" Joe says, "If anyone's responsible, it's me. I shouldn't have gotten him all worked up about finding Sarah. Where's Vicki?" Carolyn replies, "Out with Burke. I suppose you've heard about their engagement" . Joe asks, "How...", but then stops. Carolyn asks, "How what?" Joe replies, "Nothing". Carolyn asks, "How do I feel about it? I realize now I made a fool of myself over Burke. I'm just happy for Vicki. The only thing that matters to me now is David..."

Inside the secret room, David shouts, "Help! Help! Someone let me out!"

The clock in the foyer reads 12 midnight. Vicki returns. Carolyn exclaims, "Vicki!" Vicki answers, "Yes?" Carolyn explains, "Vicki, I'm so glad you're here! David's disappeared! He's been gone for hours!" Joe says, "I think he's snuck out of the house to look for Sarah." Vicki asks, "How long has he been missing?" Carolyn replies, "About four hours". Joe says, "I think I'd better go search the woods for him". Carolyn says she will go too. Vicki volunteers to go too, but Joe tells her, "No, Vicki, you've got to stay here in case he comes back or someone telephones".

In the secret room, David continues to try to open door. He takes out a pocket knife and tries to pry the door open. It doesn't work. He screams, "Help!", then dejectedly moans, "Nobody can hear me, nobody!"

Joe and Carolyn are in the woods. Joe says, "Well, he's not here. Where else does he go to play?" Carolyn replies, "On the rocks over at the cove". Joe asks, "With Sarah?" Carolyn replies, "No". Joe asks, "Where does he go to play with Sarah?" Carolyn replies, "I don't know. I've never
paid much attention when he talked about Sarah. I have a feeling something terrible has happened to him. I've had this feeling for some time". Joe asks, "What do you mean?" Carolyn explains, "I've been having dreams for the past few weeks that some sort of disaster was about to strike. I didn't know what, but I always thought it was going to happen to me, not David"

David hears the sound of a flute playing "London Bridge". He shouts, "Sarah, where are you? Sarah! Sarah!" but receives no answer. The flute music stops. David starts to cry.

In the woods. Carolyn exclaims, "I thought I saw something over there move. Who's that?" The figure comes into view and she sees who it is. She asks, "Willie! What are you doing here prowling the woods in the middle of the night?" Willie answers, "Gathering firewood". Joe asks, "At this hour?" Willie replies, "Yes. What are you two doing here?" Carolyn explains, "Looking for David". Joe remarks, "Hey, we're pretty close to the old house. Doesn't David like to play there?" Carolyn replies, "Yes", but Willie says, "He couldn't be in there! I locked the place up tight!" Carolyn says, "David has a way of getting into locked places", and suggest they search the Old house anyway, but Willie insists, "No! Mr. Collins wouldn't like it. He's not there, and that's that!" and leaves. Carolyn remarks, "He's a peculiar man". Joe answers, "Yes, very peculiar. As if he's hiding something".

David says to himself, "There IS a way out! Barnabas said 'Open the panel, Willie'. But how did he do it, how?"

Vicki is in the garden, worrying. Barnabas is spying on her through the fence. He comes into the garden and says, "Vicki!" Vicki answers, "Oh, hello, Barnabas". Barnabas explains, "I was out for a walk and saw you sitting here. You look disturbed. Is anything wrong?" Vicki explains, "David has disappeared". Barnabas asks, "Is anyone searching for him?" Vicki replies, "Joe and Carolyn". Barnabas tells Vicki, "You mustn't worry. I'm sure they'll find him. Anything I can do?" Vicki replies, "No." Barnabas suggests, "We could go and search together", but Vicki replies, "No, I've got to stay here in case he comes back or someone calls". Barnabas tells her, "I'll stay here with you". Vicki replies, "No, you don't have to" Barnabas says, "I can't leave you here alone in this condition". Vicki says, "I've become quite attached to David". Barnabas replies, "I know what it's like to become attached to a little child. So pure and innocent". Vicki starts to cry and moans, "He's got to be all right! He's got to be!" Barnabas tells her, "Put your head on my shoulder and cry all you want. No one will hear you but me". Vicki buries her face on his shoulder and cries. Barnabas looks at her tender young neck and suddenly cannot restrain himself anymore. He opens his mouth, bares his fangs, and prepares to strike!

A pale, peaceful moon illuminates the walls of Collinwood. But the great house knows no peace on this night, for a small boy has disappeared and a terrified girl seeks comfort from one who's comforting touch could bring her death and destruction.

Suddenly, Carolyn's voice comes from inside the house shouting "Vicki, Vicki!" Barnabas quickly closes his mouth and stops. Vicki shouts, "I'm over here!" Joe and Carolyn come out into the garden. Vicki asks, "You didn't find him, did you?" Joe replies, "No". Carolyn says "We went to all the places he usually plays". Joe says "I think I'd better call the sheriff and have him send out a general alert". Barnabas asks, "Is there anything I could do to help?" Joe replies, "I can't think of anything", then remarks, "You're up late". Barnabas explains, "I was walking by and saw Miss Winters sitting here. I can't imagine where David would go this time of night". Joe tells him, "I'm afraid it's my fault. I got him worked up about finding that little girl" Barnabas asks, "Who?" Joe replies, "Sarah". Barnabas asks, "Isn't that David's imaginary playmate?" Carolyn says, "We're not so sure she is imaginary". Joe adds, "We think she might know something about Maggie's disappearance". Barnabas asks, "Did he say where he's looking for her?" Joe replies, "He said it was secret. He wouldn't tell us". Carolyn adds, "He said he was positive he could find her". Barnabas says, "I see". Joe says, "I'd better
go call the sheriff" and goes inside. Carolyn says, "Vicki, I think we should call Uncle Roger and Aunt Elizabeth". Vicki answers, "No, they couldn't do anything from Boston". Carolyn says, "Barnabas...", but sees he's not there and says, "Oh, he's gone!" Vicki suggests, "Maybe he went to look for David on his own".

At the old house, Barnabas calls, "Willie??" Willie comes. Barnabas asks, "Have you seen David recently?" Willie replies, "I haven't seen him. I haven't seen him for days". Barnabas tells him, "We've got to find David before anyone else does". Willie asks, "Why?" Barnabas replies, "That should be obvious" Willie asks, "You think he knows where Sarah is? If he does, then why hasn't he brought her to Collinwood?" Barnabas answers "I don't know. All I know is that we have to find him before someone else does". Willie asks, "And if we find him, what do we do?" Barnabas answers, "Whatever's necessary".

There is a knock on the door of Collinwood. Carolyn answers. It's the Sheriff. He asks, "How long has he been missing?" Carolyn replies, "About 6 hours." The sheriff asks, "Why didn't you call me immediately? Joe explains, "We thought he was nearby and we'd find him ourselves." He explains what happened. The Sheriff asks, "Do you have any reason to believe David might have been kidnapped?" Carolyn exclaims, "Kidnapped?! We didn't even think of that!" The sheriff sadly notes, "With the madman who kidnapped still out there, it's a possibility". Carolyn exclaims, "We've got to find him!" Joe tells the sheriff, "We've searched everywhere he usually plays... Wait a second. There's one place we didn't search. The old house. We only searched outside. Willie wouldn't let us go in". Carolyn protests, "But David's been forbidden to go near the Old House since Barnabas moved in there". Joe replies, "All the more enticement for him to go there". Vicki says, "If Barnabas and Willie had found him, they would've come and told us", but Joe replies, "Not if he's hiding and they didn't find him. When David disappeared before, he was usually found at the old house". Vicki suddenly exclaims, "The little girl at the top of the stairs!" Joe remarks, "A room at the old house could be their secret place". The Sheriff says, "It's worth a try". Joe and the Sheriff leave.

At the old house, Barnabas says "Come, Willie". Willie asks, "Where?" Barnabas replies "To search for David, of course" Willie warns, "You haven't go much time. The sun's about to come up". There's a knock at the door. Willie asks, "Who's that?" Barnabas calmly replies. "We'll know in a moment". He answers the door. It's Sheriff Patterson and Joe. Sheriff Patterson asks, "Mr. Collins, I'd like to take a look around your house if you don't mind". Barnabas asks, "Why?" The sheriff replies, "David might be in here". Joe explains, "He was looking for Sarah". Willie exclaims, "He couldn't be here. I've kept the place locked tight". Joe notes, "David has a way of getting past locks". Barnabas asks, "Why here?" Joe replies, "Vicki said she thought she saw Sarah here". Barnabas says, "That was her imagination". Joe says, "Maybe, maybe not". The sheriff says, "I don't see why you'd object". Barnabas replies, "I don't object, I just think it's a waste of time". Joe and the sheriff start to search the back of the house. They split up, Joe taking upstairs and the Sheriff the first floor. Willie says, "Barnabas, you shouldn't have let do that!" Barnabas replies, "There's nothing upstairs or in the back of the house". Willie says, "But they might search downstairs!" Barnabas says, "They haven't yet". He assures Willie, "It'll be all right, Willie!", but Willie says, "But don't pretend you're not scared! You're just as scared as I am!"

A cock crows. Willie says, "This sun is going to rise in a few minutes! We've got to get rid of them! You've got get to the cellar!" Barnabas calmly replies, "Let me handle this".

The sheriff comes into the room. Barnabas is sitting calmly in a chair. He asks, "Find anything?" The sheriff replies, "Nothing". He calls upstairs, "Joe!" Joe comes downstairs. Joe asks, "Any luck?" The sheriff replies, "No, you?" Joe says "No. There's nothing but some empty rooms upstairs. Have you searched everywhere down here?" The sheriff replies, "Everywhere except the cellar. I couldn't get down there". Barnabas tells him, "There's nothing but odds and ends down there". Joe notes, "Seems to me like a place a couple of kids would like to hide". Barnabas tells them, "But it's impossible for David to have gotten down there!" The sheriff asks, "May I have the key, Mr. Collins?" Barnabas replies, "I'm afraid I can't. Mrs. Stoddard gave me all the keys, but I'm afraid I lost it". Joe suggests, "We could break it down". Barnabas replies, "I can't let you do that!" and looks at clock nervously. The sheriff asks, "Why not?" Barnabas replies, "I can't let you destroy Collins Family property!" Joe promises, "I'll fix it afterwards". The sheriff asks, "Why are you objecting to us taking a look?" Barnabas starts to stammer, "I'm not objecting, it's just..." Suddenly, Carolyn comes running into the house shouting, "Joe! A sheriff's deputy called! A woman saw David walking along the old beach road away from town!" Everyone quickly leaves. Willie says, "That was close!" Barnabas tells him, "I want you to search for David all day long. If you find him, bring him here. I'll decide what to do with him next". He goes downstairs. Willie looks worried.

It is dawn at Collinwood, and faint rays of light have begun to creep across the silent walls of the great house. For one girl it has been a night of terror, for a small boy has disappeared and he is in greater danger than anyone knows. For he has begun to stumble onto secrets that could cost him his life.

The clock in the foyer reads 6:30. Roger returns. Leaving a suitcase on the floor of the foyer, he goes into the drawing room. He is surprised to find Vicki dozing in a chair. He asks, "Vicki?" Vicki awakens and says, "Roger? What are you doing here? I thought you were in Boston". Roger replies, "I came back early. Why are all the lights on? I just passed the sheriff on the driveway. Has anything happened?" Vicki replies, "David's disappeared!" She tells him what happened. He asks, "Why didn't you call me?" She replies, "There was nothing you could do from Boston. The police are already out looking for him". Roger asks, "Has he been gone all night long?" Vicki replies, "Yes". Roger wonders, "An entire night. I wonder where he could be".

In the secret room, David shouts, "Help! Help! Please, somebody help me! Help me!"

Roger asks, "What time was he discovered missing? Vicki replies, "Carolyn says between 6 and 7 o'clock" Roger asks, "Carolyn? Where were YOU?" Vicki replies, "I wasn't here. I was out with Burke." Roger angrily says, "I thought we were paying YOU to look after David". Vicki apologizes, "Sorry". Roger says, "Never mind. What happened?" Vicki explains. Carolyn and Burke come in. Carolyn says, "Uncle Roger! You're back! Where's mother?" Roger replies, "She's still in Boston". Carolyn says, "A deputy had some news. A boy fitting David's description was seen on the beach road outside town near the railroad crossing. The police are searching the area". Joe adds, "The chances are good he'll be found. I'm going out there. Want to come with me?" Roger replies, "Let me get my coat". He does so. Joe and Roger leave.

David shouts, "Help! Help! Help!", then sits down in despair.

At Collinwood, Vicki says, "Carolyn, it's silly for both of us to stay down here. Go up and get some sleep". Carolyn replies, "I couldn't sleep. You go up". Vicki replies, "I wouldn't be able to sleep either. Joe said there was hope of finding David". Carolyn sadly replies, "Joe didn't answer the phone call from the sheriff's deputy. I did. The deputy wasn't quite as hopeful as I made him sound. The woman who thought she saw David was very old and not very reliable. The deputy told me not to get my hopes too high. I'm scared, Vicki, really scared. I'm afraid something's happened to him, something terrible..."

Roger and Joe are standing on top of a hill. Joe asks, "See anything?" Roger replies, "All I can see are men in blue swarming through the underbrush". Joe notes, "This is the highest point of land around for miles. You can see everything from here". They discuss the possibility that the old woman who thought she saw David might have been mistaken. Joe asks, "What's that down there?" Roger replies, "Eagle Hill cemetery. It's the most desolate cemetery in the area, and that's really saying something. Some of my ancestors are buried there. I've never understood why". Joe suggests, "I think we should search there". Roger asks, "Why?" Joe explains, "We found Maggie wandering there a couple of times".

In the secret room, David says to himself, "I mustn't fall asleep! Someone's got to come! Someone's got to!"

The old caretaker shows up outside the Collins mausoleum. He sees that the gate is open and goes in to check . Meanwhile, David is lying down on the floor in the secret room. The caretaker calls out, "Is anyone in here?" Hearing this, David shouts, "Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help!" The caretaker, thinking it's ghosts, shouts, "No! No! There's no help for you! No help is possible! You must rest, rest!" and leaves. David lies down in despair, his head resting on the second step, right on the secret step....

Joe and Roger are in Eagle Hill cemetery. Roger remarks, "Well, here we are and no David". Joe says, "Wait! I see something moving over there". Roger looks and says, "There's no one over there but the old caretaker." Joe says, "Hello!" Roger asks, "Who are you calling?" Joe replies, "The caretaker. Maybe he's seen something". Roger says, "I doubt it". They go to the caretaker. The caretaker asks, "Who are you?" Joe replies, "We're searching for a little boy". The caretaker asks, "You're not one of THEM?"
He takes a close look then says, "No, you're alive". Joe asks, "Have you seen a little boy named David? He has brown hair..." The caretaker replies, "Yes, David." Roger excitedly asks, "Yes! David! Where did you see him?" The caretaker continues, He lies buried not far from here. David Brewster, died at sea". Joe says, "You don't understand. We're looking for a little boy...", but the caretaker repeats, "David Brewster, died at sea. You must go. The dead are restless. I've heard their voices. They're calling for help." Joe asks, "Where?". The caretaker replies, "Over there, the Collins Mausoleum". Roger jokes, "I'm a Collins. Maybe my ancestors are kicking up a fuss". The caretaker says, "You're a Collins? That's why they were calling! They knew you were coming! They were warning you to stay away!" Joe asks, "Did you say you heard the crying inside?". The caretaker replies, "Inside, all around. I warn you, Go away! It's dangerous here! If you value your life, go!" He continues to ramble on and walks away. Roger quips, "Humorous character. Good for a laugh." Joe tells Roger, "I think we should look inside". Roger replies, "Might as well, since we've come all this way". They open the gate.

Meanwhile, inside the secret room, David says to himself, "There's nobody there. It must have been my imagination" and goes to sleep.

Joe and Roger look around inside the tomb. It is empty. Roger asks , "You admit this is insanity?". Joe admits, "Yes". Roger asks, "Did you really think we'd find David in here?". Joe replies, "No". David, sound asleep inside the secret room, doesn't hear them. As Joe and Roger turn to leave, Roger stops and says, "Wait. Several of my ancestors - ancestors! I mean ancestors - are buried here. From what I gather, no one's been here in over a century". He looks around and reads the plaques on the wall, "Naomi Collins, one of the Collins' great beauties. Joshua Collins, quite an old tyrant. He had his family buried here. No one knows why." The caretaker comes in and says, "You must leave! They don't want you here! Please leave, now!". Joe and Roger leave. David awakens. He shouts, "Who's out there? Who is it? Help! Help! Help!", but only the caretaker hears him...

It is a new day at Collinwood. The sea beyond the great house shimmers in the clear morning air. But inside the walls of Collinwood, terror mounts. For a missing boy has not yet been found. Far from the great house, there are those who also know fear. A fear so terrifying that it stuns the mind and numbs the heart.

Joe comes to the Evan's cottage. Maggie asks, "Find him?". Joe replies, "No, the search parties have broken up. The men are tired. They need rest". Maggie asks "How could David have just disappeared like that?". Joe replies, "I'm beginning to think he did just disappear. All we know is something strange happening around town, something so strange it borders on the supernatural". Maggie asks, "What do you mean supernatural?". Joe replies, "I mean there's so much that doesn't add up. Your disappearance, that little girl who just keeps appearing and disappearing, and now David." Maggie says, "David could just have wandered away looking for Sarah. There's miles of woodlands around here a little boy could get lost in". Joe blames himself for what happened, for getting David so worked about finding Sarah, but Maggie tells him, "Don't talk that way! I'm not going to listen to another word of it!". There's a knock at the door. Maggie asks, "Who could that be?". Joe explains, "It's probably Dr. Woodard. I left a message asking him to stop here". He lets Woodard in. Woodard asks, "Hello. What did you want?". Joe says, "There are two things that have been disturbing me. The first is Dr. Julia Hoffman.". Woodard says, "I've already told you about her. She's a highly competent specialist". Joe tells Maggie, "Tell him what
happens when she comes to see you, Maggie". Maggie tells Woodard, "She takes my pulse, listens to my heartbeat, etc". describing a simple physical examination. Woodard, looking very surprised, asks, "You mean that's all she does? She doesn't do anything more than give you a routine checkup?". Maggie replies, "No". Woodard says, "She must have her reasons! I'll talk to her about it". Joe says, "Another thing, while Sam and I were looking for Sarah, we found her at the old house". Woodard suggests, "She was probably there to see Mr. Collins", but Joe says, "No, he wasn't there. She was there all alone. Whose benefit was she posing as a historian for? I think she's hiding something". Woodard says, "OK, I'll talk to Julia and tell her how you feel. Maybe she'll break down and tell you something. Is that all?". Joe replies, "No, there's another thing. Sarah. There's something strange about that kid. The police can't find her, only a handful of people have ever seen her, she keeps appearing and disappearing. She was here the other day". Maggie tells the sheriff about finding Sarah's doll. Joe says, "The thing is, there's no way she could've gotten into the room. It was locked tight". Woodard asks, "Are you sure?". Maggie replies, "Yes, I locked it myself". Woodard asks, "Let me take a look at that doll". Maggie gets the doll and hands it to him. Woodard asks, "Maggie, would you let me borrow this?". Maggie replies, "Why?". Woodard replies, "I have a hunch we can learn something from this doll. Call me insane, but I have the feeling that it could lead us closer to the truth than we've ever been before!"

Willie is searching for David in the woods. He hears "London Bridge", turns and is surprised to see a little girl there. It's Sarah. Sarah says, "Hello!". Willie exclaims, "You! Where'd you come from?". Sarah answers, "Around". Willie tells her, "Everyone's been looking for you". Sarah asks, "They have?". Willie tells her, "Someone special's been looking for you". Sarah asks, "Who?" Willie replies, "Barnabas". Sarah says, "I've been looking for him too!!". Willie tells her, "I'll take you to his house. He'll be coming home soon", but Sarah replies, "I can't. I'm looking for someone else who's lost". Willie asks, "David?". Sarah replies, "Yes". Willie asks, "He's a good friend of yours, isn't he?". Sarah replies, "Yes". Willie asks, "What do you two do?". Sarah replies, "We play games". Willie asks, "Do you ever tell each other things?". Sarah replies, "Yes". Willie asks, "Like what?". Sarah replies, "Secrets". Willie asks, "What secrets?". Sarah replies, "Some of them are little secrets, some of them are big secrets. I've just told him the biggest secret I know!". Willie, looking alarmed, asks, "What?", but Sarah refuses to tell him, "I can't tell you! If I did, it wouldn't be a secret anymore!". Willie suggests, "Let's go see Barnabas", but Sarah declines, saying "No, I've got to find David first". Willie insists, "Come on, it's not far". Sarah asks, "Where?". Willie turns and points at the old house, "Over there, in that house in the clearing", but when he turns back, Sarah is gone...

Julia is at Collinwood. There's a knock at the door. She answers. It's Willie. He tells her, "It's important". Julia says, "I told you not to come here! It could cause people to become suspicious". Willie says, "But its important! I've got to talk to you! Let's go to the old house!". Julia tells him, "I can't. Everyone's out searching for David and I've got to stay here in case anyone calls". Willie gestures towards the drawing room asks, "Can we talk there?". Julia replies, "I suppose so". They go to the Drawing room. Willie tells Julia, "I saw her!". Julia asks, "Who?". Willie replies, "Sarah!". Julia asks, "And you let her get away?". Willie protests, "I couldn't help it. I just turned away for a second, and when I turned back, she was gone! She said she was looking for David". Julia asks, "She didn't know where he was?". Willie replies, "No". Julia remarks, "I thought she would". Willie tells her, "She told me something. If Barnabas finds out about it, there's going to be a killing. Barnabas will kill David! She told me she told David a secret, the biggest secret she knows! You know what that means, it means she told David about Barnabas! Barnabas has already told me he'll do whatever's necessary to silence David!". Julia tells him, "You can't tell Barnabas this! You've got to lie to him, for David's sake!". Willie replies, "It won't be easy, but I'll try". Julia tells him, "You'll have to do more than try, Willie, you've got to do it!".

There's a knock at the front door. Julia answers. It's Dr. Woodard. Woodard says, "Hello, Julia, I have to talk to you". To explain Willie's presence, Julia says, "Thank you for bringing the book over, Willie. Thank Mr. Collins for me". Willie leaves. Woodard remarks, "It seems you're getting pretty friendly with everyone down at the Old House. You've been down at the Old House quite a lot, haven't you? Joe told me he saw you down at the old house the other day, prowling around all by yourself". Julia says, "I wasn't prowling around. It was part of my role as historian". Woodard asks, "For whose benefit? You were there all alone!". Julia explains, "I was gathering research to make myself more convincing". Woodard tells Julia, "Joe and Sam are both convinced that you're doing absolutely nothing to help Maggie's memory return". Julia says, "I refuse to answer any more questions about my methods!". Woodard says, "I think you've stumbled onto something supernatural there, and what's more I think I know what it is!". Julia, looking alarmed, asks, "You do?". Woodard replies, "Yes, that little girl Sarah. First, there's the way she's always appearing and disappearing. Then there's the fact that only a few people have seen her, even though she must live somewhere around here. Then there's that strange dress she's always wearing" Julia says, "There must be a logical explanation for all that". Woodard puts Sarah's doll on the desk and says, "There's no logical explanation for this! Recognize it? It's Sarah's". He tells her how Maggie claims Sarah came into her locked room and left it there. He continues, "I showed it to Miss Spence, the local librarian. She happens to be an authority on toys. Look carefully at the doll, Julia. It looks almost brand new, doesn't it? Miss Spence examined the doll very carefully, the wood, the pins, the material used for the dress. She came to a rather strange conclusion. That doll's an antique. No doll like that has been made in years, in our lifetimes. That doll is over 150 years old!"

The sun has gone down and the night at Collinwood seems darker and lonelier than ever before. For a little boy has disappeared, and we live with the fear he may never return safely. At the Old House on the Collinwood estate, plans are being made. For there is a man in that house who fears the little boy may have learned his dark secret.

At the Old house, Barnabas awakens and comes upstairs. He asks Julia, who's there, "Where's Willie?". Julia replies, "I don't know". Barnabas complains, "I gave him explicit instructions to look for David all day". Julia suggests, "Maybe he didn't find anything". Barnabas says, "Or maybe he did and doesn't want to tell me! I'll deal with Willie later. The matter at hand is to find David, and I will before this night is over!"

In the secret room, David continues to try to open the door with his knife. He thinks, "Barnabas said, 'Open the door Willie', and he did. It must be something easy, but I can't figure it out, I can't!".

Julia tells Barnabas, "Barnabas, I must insist you stay here tonight for your treatments". Barnabas replies, "Do not interfere with my plans, Doctor". Julia says, "But you must have another injection tonight!". Barnabas replies, "It can wait". Julia tells him, "No, the injections must be given at proper intervals or they're useless", but Barnabas says, "If someone else finds David first and he tells them about me, then all your work will have been rendered useless". Julia tells him, "The injection will be ready in 15 minutes. Surely you can wait 15 minutes", but Barnabas replies, "No, I've got to go and find David". Julia accuses him of having David and holding him somewhere. Barnabas denies it, "I wouldn't keep David a prisoner and risk his escaping and telling everyone. I assure you, when I find him, it won't be to keep him a prisoner". Julia says, "You're assuming David know what you are. You don't know that for a fact". Barnabas replies, "That's why I must find him and question him". Julia asks, "You mean if he doesn't know, anything you won't do anything to him?" Barnabas replies, "Yes, but I'm convinced he does. He's been seeing far too much of Sarah lately, and children like to tell each other secrets. It would be a pity if David would have to be done away with. I was getting very fond of
him". Julia warns Barnabas about harming David, saying it would raise suspicion. Barnabas remarks, "Strange, for a doctor, you share a remarkable number of traits with Willie. Squeamishness, for example". Julia replies, "I wouldn't call squeamish not to want to see a child killed by a..." but stops in mid-sentence. Barnabas asks, "A what, Miss Hoffman?", but she just tells him, "I warn you, if you harm David, you'll be issuing your own death warrant". Barnabas replies coldly, "There may be one or two death warrants issued around here regardless of what happens to David. And you can pass that on to Willie when you see him", and leaves.

Barnabas goes to Collinwood. Vicki answers the door. Barnabas asks, "Any word on David?". Vicki replies, "I'm afraid not. The sheriff and his deputies are doing everything they can to find him". Barnabas says, "They must find him soon. A boy of 10 couldn't have gotten that far from here". Vicki tells him, "But they've searched every square inch for 5 miles around here. I'm afraid he's been in some sort of accident". Barnabas says, "No, if he's been in some sort of accident, he wouldn't have been able to move and they would've found him". Vicki says , "There's one other possibility, a possibility that terrifies me. He could've been kidnapped, kidnapped by the same madman that kidnapped Maggie!". Barnabas says , "I'm sure he's a thousand miles away from here by now. After all this searching, someone should've come up with some clue". Vicki tells him, "There's been absolutely nothing! Roger and Joe were at the cemetery and they thought they came up with something, but it turned out to be nothing. The old caretaker said he heard voices coming from the Collins Mausoleum. It turned but he was imagining it. He claims he had heard the voices of the dead. The caretaker is very old and very strange. Joe and Roger went into the tomb, just to make sure. There was no one in there. The mausoleum was empty, and needless to say, there were no voices". Barnabas says, "Well, Vicki, there's no point in me staying here. I'll go and join the search".

David continues to try to open the door with his knife but blade breaks off. He says, "It's so cold! I've got to get out of here, I've got to! If I don't get out of here, I'm going to starve!"

The old caretaker is puttering around Eagle Hill cemetery. Barnabas shows up and says, "Good Evening". The caretaker asks, "Who are you?". Barnabas replies, "My name is Barnabas Collins". The caretaker asks, "Are you a ghost? Barnabas Collins died in England over a hundred years ago!". Barnabas explains, "I'm a descendent of his". The caretaker notes, "You don't look any different from him. You look just like the man in the portrait". Barnabas says, "I'm looking for a little boy...". The caretaker takes Barnabas' hand and says, "Even the ring on your finger is the same...". Barnabas, exasperated, asks, "Would you please listen?! I'm looking for a little boy. Could you give me some help?". The caretaker asks, "They haven't found him?" Barnabas replies, "No. He's been missing for almost two days now". The caretaker remarks, "Someone else was looking for a little boy. Mr. Roger Collins and that young gentleman". Barnabas says, "Yes, I know. You told them you heard voices coming from the Collins mausoleum.". The caretaker says, "It wasn't the voice of the boy I heard. It was the voice of someone dead." Barnabas asks, "Where was this voice coming from?" The caretaker replies, "From the walls. Some of the dead are restless and cry for help". Barnabas asks, "Is that what the voice was doing, crying for help?". The caretaker replies, "Yes. It was very faint". Barnabas asks, "You mean like a child's voice?" The caretaker replies, "There's only one child buried in there, Sarah Collins. She died when she was 9 years old". Barnabas remarks, "I know". The caretaker asks, "How?" Barnabas starts to say, "Because I'm her...", but stops suddenly, then says, "Because I know the family history. Could the voice you heard have been that of a child?". The caretaker replies, "I suppose so". Barnabas remarks, "Maybe if I go in there the voices will speak to me". The caretaker warns, "NO! It's not safe to go in there at night!" Barnabas replies, "The night holds no fear for me", but the caretaker warns him, "The night holds fear for EVERY living being!" Barnabas just smiles.

Inside the secret room, David continues to shout "Please, someone come and help me!". He hears a voice behind him say, "I can help you, David!". He turns, sees Sarah standing there and asks, "Sarah, where did you come from?". Sarah replies, "I heard you calling for help so I came to help you!". David asks, "How did you get in?". Sarah replies, "I can get in anywhere". David asks, "How?" But Sarah refuses to tell him, "It's a secret. You look unhappy". David tells her, "I'm mad at YOU. You took me here and then ran off. I thought you were outside, so I went out to look. Then I heard voices, Barnabas and Willie. I had to come in here and close the secret panel so they wouldn't find out about the secret room. But they already knew! They came in here!". Sarah asks, "What did you do?". David replies, "I hid in the coffin! And another thing. Sarah, you showed me how to get into this place, but you never showed me how to get out!". Sarah apologizes, "Sorry". David asks, "Then you can get me out?". Sarah replies, "Yes, but you've got to promise me something. This room still has to be our secret. You can't tell anyone about it". David asks, "But how can it be a secret? Barnabas and Willie already know about it!". Sarah says, "Just promise". David says, "OK...". Sarah tells him, "Pull the first stone on the left on the second step and turn the knob inside". David does so. The door opens. David turns and says, "Come on, Sarah, let's go", but is surprised to find that she's gone. He says, "Sarah, now where'd you go? I don't know where you're hiding, but I have to get home!". He closes the secret door and runs out of the tomb...right into the arms of Barnabas! Barnabas smiles and says, "Hello, David, I've been looking everywhere for you. But now I've found you, haven't I?"

The night is long and casts the shadow of doom over Collinwood. One who is close to us--a little boy--is still missing. We do not know yet that the boy has been trapped in a Mausoleum in the old Eagle Hill Cemetery. Now he has found his way out, unaware that a new and greater danger is about to fall on him.

David asks, "Barnabas, what are you doing here?". Barnabas replies, "Looking for you, dear boy. You've had us all very worried. Everyone out looking for you. Where have you been all this time?". David lies, "Lost in the woods", but Barnabas asks, "Then what were you doing in the mausoleum?". David lies, "It got cold so I went in there to get warm". Barnabas notes, "But it's colder in there than it is out here". David replies, "I know. I found that out after I went in there. That's why I came back out". Barnabas asks, "Is there anything in there that fascinated you?". David lies, "No". Barnabas says, "You know it isn't right for a little boy to lie to his elders.". David insists he's telling the truth. Barnabas doesn't believe him and says, "I think not. I think you're keeping something from me.". David says, "No. I've got to get back to Collinwood". Barnabas says, "You can't. There's no one there. Everyone's out searching for you. Let's go back to my house and wait there." David says, "I could go back to Collinwood and wait there", but Barnabas says, "No, I've found you and now I'm responsible for you. Come to my home and tell me about your little friend Sarah. Isn't she the friend who brought you to the mausoleum?". David lies, "No". Barnabas asks, "Didn't she have a secret to tell you? Miss Winters told me she did". David says, "Miss Winters must have been mistaken". Barnabas asks, "Has your friend ever told you any secrets?". David lies, "No". Barnabas says, "Well, come with me to my house and maybe your memory will get better". H starts to grab David, but suddenly a voice calls, "David!" David replies, "Burke! Over here!". Burke comes and says, "David! Thank God you're all right!". Barnabas says, "I found him here at the mausoleum, Burke. He's been acting strangely. I'm sure the ordeal has left him terrified". Burke remarks, "Strange that you've succeeded in finding David when all the sheriff deputies have failed.". Barnabas replies, "You were in the area too. If I hadn't found him, you would've.". David complains to Burke, "I'm cold and hungry". Burke asks Barnabas, "You said you found him in the mausoleum?". Barnabas replies, "Yes". Burke says, "You couldn't have. Joe and Sam searched there earlier". David quickly says, "I wasn't in there long. Is there anyone at Collinwood?". Burke answers, "Yes, your father and Vicki are there". David looks at Barnabas with a funny expression on his face. Burke asks, "What's the matter David?". Barnabas quickly explains, "I'm afraid I must have confused him. I told him no one was home at Collinwood. I stopped by there earlier. No one answered when I knocked, so I assumed everyone was out searching". Burke says, "Let's take David home now". Barnabas echoes, "Let's, by all means"

At Collinwood, Roger closes the door, just having talked to the sheriff at the door. Vicki asks, "No news?". Roger replies, "Not a trace of him". Vicki asks, "They haven't given up searching, have they?". Roger replies, "No, they're going to keep searching till sunset tomorrow. The sheriff says if they haven't found him by then, there's little hope". Suddenly, a voice from the foyer calls, "Vicki!". Vicki looks and exclaims,
"David! I'm so glad you're safe!". David runs into the drawing room and hugs Roger. Burke and Barnabas come into the drawing room as well. Roger asks, Burke, "Burke, where did you ever find him?". Burke explains, "Actually, it was Barnabas who found him". Roger thanks Barnabas and asks, "Where on earth did you find him?". Barnabas explains, "At Eagle Hill Cemetery, at the Collins Family mausoleum". Roger says, "But Joe and I searched there this afternoon". David again explains, "I had just gone in there". Roger says, "We'd better get you some food". As Roger is taking David out of the room, David stares back at Barnabas strangely. Roger asks, "What's the matter, David?". David replies, "Nothing, father, nothing!"

Vicki thanks Barnabas for finding David. Burke asks Barnabas, "I'm curious to know how you happened to be roaming in that cemetery". Barnabas answers, "I wasn't roaming in there. I was on my way to search the woods on the far side of the cemetery. What were YOU doing in that cemetery?". Vicki says, "Does it matter? The important thing is that David's safe.". Barnabas says, "I must be getting along. I have things that need attending to at home" and leaves.

In David's room, David is sitting in bed munching on a sandwich. Roger is sitting on the bed with him. Roger says, "Before you get to sleep, I think we'd better have a man to man talk. Where have you been?". David replies, "I was looking for Sarah and got lost in the woods. I fell asleep there". Roger says, "That doesn't make sense. The sheriff, 12 deputies, Joe, Burke, Barnabas and myself were out there looking for you. That's 17 people. If you were sleeping in the woods, surely one of us would've found you! Barnabas said he found you in the mausoleum. It looks to me like...". David interrupts, "Barnabas is mysterious...". Roger says, "Don't change the subject, David", but David continues, "We don't know anything about him. He just showed up here one day.". Roger, thinking David just wants to avoid the subject of being lost, says, "OK, David, I understand. You've been through quite an ordeal. If you don't want to talk about it not, that's fine. But I assure you we're going to talk about it tomorrow. I want to find out what happened and make sure it never happens again!". He tells David goodnight and leaves.

Barnabas is at the Old House. He sits down in an armchair. Willie comes down the stairs. Barnabas says, "Willie!". Willie slowly comes to him. Barnabas remarks, "Well, Willie, you've finally decided to come back". Willie asks, "What do you mean?". Barnabas says, "I told you to come back at sunset and report to me". Willie says, "I didn't have anything to report". Barnabas asks, "Why didn't you come back and tell me that?". Willie says, "I was out in the woods searching for David". Barnabas says, "You usually follow orders, but you didn't this time. I think you must've found something you didn't want to tell me". Willie denies this. Barnabas says, "I'll deal with you later. I have more important things to do right now. While you were out wandering in the woods, I found Cousin David". Willie exclaims, "You did?!". Barnabas tells him about catching David coming out of the mausoleum. Willie asks, "Does he know about the secret room?". Barnabas replies, "Of course he does, you fool!". Willie asks, "What did you do to him?" Barnabas replies, "Nothing. I was about to take him back here when Devlin showed up and took him back to Collinwood". Willie asks, "You think he knows about you?". Barnabas replies, "I don't know, but I do know he's lying about something. If he does, he'll have to be dealt with". Willie starts to say, "Maybe Sarah didn't tell him anything...", but Barnabas interrupts, "Maybe! Maybe! What assurances do I have with 'Maybe'? In any event, his curiosity has been aroused, and the sooner it is put to rest, the better for both of us!"

David is in his room looking out the window. Vicki comes in and says, "David! I thought you'd be fast asleep!". David replies, "No, I wasn't as tired as I thought I was". Vicki asks, "David, something's the matter. What is it?". David says, "Vicki, I'm scared!". Vicki asks, "Of what?". David replies, "I don't know". Vicki says, "I supposed if I'd been lost in the woods all night, I'd be scared too", but David says, "No, I'm afraid right now!". Vicki points out, "But you're home safe now.". David says, "I feel like someone's watching me, someone EVIL!"

Meanwhile, at the Old House, Barnabas is staring out the window with an evil expression on his face. He mutters, "Good night, David. Pleasant dreams..."

The fate of a little boy, trapped in the secret chamber of an old tomb has been a matter of grave concern at Collinwood. Now that the boy has been found, there is a feeling that the crisis has passed. But, in fact, it has not. As the sun goes down, the little boy's life is still in jeopardy. For, at the Old House on the Collinwood estate, there is one who fears that the boy has learned his dark and evil secret.

At the old house, Barnabas puts on his coat and picks up his walking stick. Just as he is about to leave, there's a knock at the door. He answers. It's Julia. Barnabas remarks, "As usual, Doctor, your timing is regrettable.". Julia asks, "Where are you going?". Barnabas replies, "I have some urgent business to attend to". Julia asks, "What?". Barnabas replies, "David". Julia warns, "You're going to be making a great mistake if you harm him". Barnabas says, "I'm not going to harm him. Yet". Julia asks, "Yet?". Barnabas explains, "I have a way of learning whether David knows about me or not. If he does not, he'll be spared. But if he does, I'm afraid little David will have to die!". Julia asks, "How is it possible for you to prove if David knows?". Barnabas replies, "I have a way". Julia asks, "What?", but Barnabas refuses to tell her, saying only "I'm not going to tell you.". Julia asks, "Why not?". Barnabas replies, "I don't want any interference from you. Now, if you will excuse me". Julia says, "But I talked to David today. My guess is that he knows nothing". Barnabas tells her, "I'm not interested in your guesses. I'm interested in facts. Get out of my way, Doctor!". She does. He leaves. But after a few seconds, Julia opens the door and leaves too...

At the Evan's cottage, Sam takes a gun out of a drawer, checks it, then puts it back. There's a knock at the door. Sam answers. It's Dr. Woodard. Sam says, "Dave, I thought you'd never get here!". Dr. Woodard asks, "What's the matter? Something wrong with Maggie?". Sam answers, "No, she's out with Joe". Woodard asks, "Then what's the emergency?". Sam says, "You know David was found today. He was found at the Collins Family mausoleum. I was thinking, and it occurred to me that the madman who kidnapped Maggie might have something to do with the Collins Family mausoleum. Maggie was found around there once too. There's got to be a reason why two people both missing in such a short space of time both turned up there. David also said the other day he had a secret place he played with Sarah. That might be the place". Woodard says, "That's the last place a couple of kids would want to play!", but Sam replies, "From what we know of Sarah, she's not an ordinary kid. And yesterday, the old caretaker told Roger and Joe he heard voices in there". Woodard remarks, "He said they were ghosts". Sam says, "Maybe not. Maybe he heard David. I think we should go there and check that mausoleum from top to bottom". Woodard says, "All right, tomorrow I'll be free from ...", but Sam tells him, "Not tomorrow, I want to do it tonight!". Woodard asks, "Tonight?!". Sam explains, "I think night is the time to do it. That's when things seem to happen there. You don't have to go with me if you don't want to". Woodard says, "I'll go with you. I don't want you going down there alone". Sam gets the gun out of the drawer and says, "Whether you go with me or not, I'm taking this along, just in case the atmosphere get unfriendly".

Barnabas is walking in Eagle Hill Cemetery. Julia is surreptitiously following him. Barnabas hears something. He turns and says, "Who is it? Who's there?", but he sees nothing.

At the entrance to the cemetery, Woodard grumbles, "I don't see why this couldn't have waited till morning". Sam hefts the gun and says, "Don't worry. I used to be a pretty good shot with this". Woodard says, "I wish you would stop fingering that! Where's the mausoleum?". Sam replies, "On the other side of the cemetery. Let's get a move on. I want to get there before morning". There's a loud crack of thunder. Woodard remarks, "Something tells me this isn't going to be our night"

Barnabas opens the gate and goes into the Collins Mausoleum. From behind some trees, Julia sees him do so. Barnabas reaches for the ring. but he hears a noise behind him and turns. It's Julia. Barnabas angrily grumbles, "Dr. Hoffman! You're curiosity is insufferable! I had a suspicion someone was following me. I should have known it was you!". Julia remarks, "I thought I knew all your secrets. Apparently there's one here in this mausoleum I didn't know about". Barnabas orders, "Go back to Collinwood!", but Julia refuses, saying, "No, I'm interested in finding out what you're doing". Barnabas warns, "If you continue to test my patience, you could find yourself here permanently with...". Julia asks, "With whom?", but Barnabas says, "Never mind". Julia remarks, "I don't think you'll harm me. The treatments are going too well. You said you wanted to find out what David knew. What do you expect to find here? You've shared all your other secrets with me. You have no choice but share this one with me too".

Woodard asks Sam, "How much farther?". Sam replies, "Only a couple of minutes". Woodard says, "Let's hurry before the storm breaks". Sam exclaims, "Wait a second! I see someone over there!". It's the old Caretaker. They go up to him. He says, "I'm the keeper of this cemetery. What are you doing here?". Sam replies, "My name is Sam Evans. This is Dr. Woodard.". The caretaker says, "If you're trying to get out, you're going in the wrong direction". Woodard tells him, "We don't want to get out. We're headed for the Collins Mausoleum". The old caretaker exclaims, "The Collins Mausoleum! There are ghosts there! I've heard them!". Sam asks, "Did you see them?". The caretaker replies, "No, I only heard them". Woodard asks, "How'd you know it was ghosts you heard?". The caretaker explains, "There's a curse on the Collins Family. Joshua Collins wrote about it in the family journal and wrote that the Collins Mausoleum was to be closed permanently after he was buried there".

Inside the mausoleum, Barnabas explains to Julia, "On the day I was discovered, chains were put around my coffin. I thought I was imprisoned forever.". Julia notes, "But there are only three coffins here." Barnabas opens the secret door and continues, "And for over a hundred years, I lay trapped here in this room. But for Willie, I might have been trapped here for all eternity". Julia asks, "No one else has been here for over a hundred years? That's extraordinary!". Barnabas says, "I suspect someone else has been here besides you, me and Willie. David". Julia asks, "What are you going to do?". Barnabas replies, "Look around". Julia says, "I don't think you'll find anything". Barnabas replies, "You're wrong Doctor". He shows he what he's just found, a broken pocked knife. "Now I know all I need to know. I know little David was in this room has been in this room and probably knows all about me. I must see to it that he tells no one!"

They start to leave. Julia protests, "I still think the pocket knife could belong to anyone, not necessarily David." Suddenly, they hear a voice saying, "This is the Collins family mausoleum". They quickly go back into the secret room and Barnabas closes the secret door. Sam and Woodard come into the tomb. Hearing them talk, Barnabas whispers to Julia, "Sam Evans and Dr. Woodard! Quiet!".

Sam and Dr. Woodard look around. Woodard says, "Nothing! Just three coffins and four stone walls!". Sam exclaims, "There's got to be more than that! This is where both Maggie and David disappeared!". Woodard pauses to read the plaques above on the walls. When he reads the third one, he exclaims, "Sam! Look at this one!". Sam reads, "Sarah Collins". Woodard asks, "What was the first thing you thought of when you read that name?". Sam replies, "Sarah, the little girl we've been looking for". Woodard remarks, "Maybe the caretaker wasn't so crazy after all. The antique hand-made doll, the old fashioned dress. Everyone who's met Sarah has described her as quaint. Maybe little Sarah is a ghost!" Inside the secret room, Julia and Barnabas hear...

Only three people know the secret behind the evil that walks in the shadows of Collinwood. But there are others who may be on the threshold of discovery.

Sam asks, "A ghost? Aw, come on, Dave, you must be joking! That's impossible! I spoke to her! I picked her up and put her on a stool! She's as solid as you or me!". Woodard mentions that Julia had mentioned that she thought what happened to Maggie could be supernatural. Inside the secret room, Barnabas angrily says, "You told him THAT?! I ought to kill you right now!" and grabs Julia by the throat. Julia gives out a little cry. Outside, Sam says, "I heard something, from behind that wall!". Woodard replies, "You couldn't have, it's solid rock". Woodard says, "I get a strange feeling while I'm in here. I get the feeling that Maggie is in more danger than I've ever felt her to be in before". Sam agrees. Woodard suggests, "Go home and make sure she's safe". Sam asks, "And you?". Woodard replies, "I'm going to Collinwood to talk to David, and to have a showdown with Julia. I have the feeling she knows something she's hiding from us. It's just a matter of time before we know everything we want to know!". They leave.

In the secret room, Barnabas says, "Just a matter of time, he said!". Julia says, "You don't really believe that, do you?". Barnabas exclaims, "The boy must be silenced!". Julia asks, "Why?". Barnabas replies, "Dr. Woodard said he was on his way to question him, and you ask why?". He opens the coffin, grabs Julia by the neck, pushes her close to it and asks, "Would you like to spend the rest of eternity locked in there?". Julia gasps, "No!". Barnabas says, "Well, I don't intend to either!". Julia says, "I warn you, if you harm David, there'll be an investigation the likes of which you've never seen! If David knew something, he would have told someone by now!". Barnabas says, "He knows about the secret room, and if knows about this, it's only a matter of time before he knows the rest!". Julia says, "But how did he find this place? David said Sarah showed him a secret place to play. She told him about it. All we have to do is find Sarah and convince her not to tell him." Barnabas sadly notes, "She's appeared to everyone but me." Julia suggests, "Perhaps she'd appear to you if she knew you felt threatened. We must find Sarah. It's the best way of silencing David. You must believe this!". Barnabas gently touches Sarah's nameplate.

Woodard is in the drawing room at Collinwood. David comes downstairs and says, "Dr. Woodard, Miss Winters said you wanted to speak to me". Woodard asks, "David, you remember when Maggie Evans was kidnapped. Mister Evans and I are trying to put some information together that might lead us to the kidnapper. We want you to tell us about your little friend Sarah. We think she might know some things that could help us. Sarah's an interesting little girl. She seems to know things no one else knows.". David asks, "What could a little girl know?". Woodard asks, "What's Sarah's last name?". David replies, "I don't know". Woodard asks, "Where does she live?". David replies, "I don't know". Woodard ask, "Where does she come from?". David replies, "I don't know". Woodard asks, "Where do you meet when you want to play with each other?". David replies, "Lots of places". Woodard says, "But you told Sam and Joe that there was a special place you went to
play, a secret place.". David replies, "Yes". Woodard continues, "I think I know where it is. I think it's the Collins mausoleum at Eagle Hill cemetery. Is that it?". David says, "I can't tell you that! Sarah made me promise not to tell anyone!". Woodard asks, "What could there be about a mausoleum she doesn't want you to tell anyone about?". David says, "I didn't say it WAS the mausoleum. I don't know why everyone's been asking about Sarah. You, Sam and Joe, Miss Hoffman...". Woodard asks, "Why do you suppose Miss Hoffman wanted to know about Sarah?". Julia, who's come into the room, replies, "Why don't you ask Miss Hoffman?". Julia asks David, "Aren't you up late? You've had a serious ordeal.". Woodard says, "One more question. I'm sure one more question won't tire him. When you want to meet Sarah, what do you do?". David explains, "I go down to the woods or by the old house and call her and she shows up". Woodard asks, "Shows up? How does she get there?". David replies, "I don't know. She just gets there". Woodard asks, "Would you says she appears?". David replies, "I guess you could say that". Woodard says, "If the mausoleum IS the place you're talking about, I don't think you and Sarah are the only ones who know about it. I think someone else does, someone dangerous". Julia tells Woodard she thinks David should go up and rest and starts to take him up the stairs. Woodard says to Julia, "Come down when you're done. I want to talk to you too".

When Julia comes back down, Woodard demands, "I want to know what you've found out and how close you are to finding who kidnapped Maggie Evans!". Julia refuses, "I can't tell you right now.". Woodard threatens, "If you don't, I'll take Maggie Evans from your care, and this time, I mean it!". From outside, dogs howl. Julia just stands there listening and doesn't answer Woodard. Woodard asks, "What's the matter? Haven't you ever heard dogs howling before?". Julia says, "It's been a trying day. Can't we talk about this tomorrow?". Woodard angrily replies, "Forget about tomorrow! As of this moment, Maggie Evans is no longer your patient! Good night, Julia!" and Leaves. Julia listens to the dogs howling, takes her coat and leaves too.

At the old house, Barnabas is staring out the window. He says to himself, "You're going to sleep, cousin David, you're going to sleep for a long, long time!". Julia comes in. Barnabas asks, What do you want, Julia?". Julia says, "I came to stop you from doing what you're going to do!". Barnabas says, "But I wasn't going to do anything". Julia says, "Don't lie to me. I heard the dogs howling". Barnabas remarks, "You know far too much about me, Doctor". Julia protests, "But you promised not to do anything to David until you tried to contact Sarah". Barnabas replies, "I promised that in a moment of weakness. Cousin David must be killed! Tonight!". Julia says, "I'm not going to let you!". Barnabas replies, "When I make up my mind to kill someone, nothing on this earth can stop me!". Suddenly, the front doors blow open, and the chandelier starts to shake. Barnabas begs, "Sarah! Sarah, she's here! Sarah, please appear to me!". Julia remarks, "Nothing on this earth can stop you. Except one little girl..."

Somewhere in this night, somewhere near Collinwood, there is one who must destroy in order to exist. He has just wreaked new destruction, and a frightened, desperate man has learned to live with terror.

At the Evans Cottage, Sam is reading a newspaper, a very worried look on his face. He throws it down in frustration. Maggie comes in through the front door. Sam exclaims, "Maggie!". Maggie asks, "What's the matter?". Sam asks, "Where were you?". Maggie replies, "I just went out for a breath of fresh air". Sam exclaims, "You can't do things like that! You've got to be more careful! You're still in danger!". Maggie protests, "I can't live that way any more!". Sam explains, "We're just trying to protect you!". Maggie says, "That's not necessary anymore! The danger's over!". Sam tells her, "Something happened, something you don't know about". He picks up the newspaper and hands it to her. She reads the headline of the "Collinsport Star", "ANOTHER GIRL ATTACKED". and exclaims, "Pop!". Sam says, "Now you know why I was so worried when you disappeared". Maggie moans, "Why can't the police find him?! Did the girl get a look at him?". Sam replies, "No, she only got a glance". Maggie says, "I'm scared, Pop!". Sam reassures her "Don't worry. I'm going to have a 24 hour watch put on you". There's a knock. Sam answers. It's Dr. Woodard. Woodard comes in and says, "I see you've got the evening paper. I treated the girl. She's going to be all right". Maggie asks, "What happened?" Woodard replies, "Just some scratches, and she lost some blood". Maggie moans, "Blood...". Woodard says, "I'd like to talk to your father alone for a moment". Sam tells Maggie, "I'd like some coffee. Could you go and fix some?". Maggie replies, "All right", and leaves to do so. Sam asks, "What do you want to say to me you don't want Maggie to hear?". Woodard explains, "I've been thinking about the madman and the things he's done. Now we've both agreed he must be far from an ordinary man. We've got to do something. I have a plan. It's risky. I think we ought to set a trap for the madman. We could spread word around town that Maggie's memory is starting to come back.". Sam, realizing Woodard is talking about using Maggie as bait, is horrified. He exclaims, "That'll put Maggie danger! I can't do that!". Woodard says, "We've got to do something to catch this man! I told you there was an element of danger in it. But with the police surrounding the place, the risk will be minimal". Sam says, "I can't do it, Dave. I'm not going to risk Maggie's life. It's too dangerous!". Woodard asks, "Can't you think it over?". Sam replies, "I've thought it over. The answer is no!". Outside, dogs start to howl. Sam remarks, "Remember the night that started happening?". Woodard replies, "Yes, the night Maggie disappeared.."

At the old house, Barnabas reads the Collinsport Star, then throws it into the fire. Willie comes in through the front doors. He asks, "Why did you do it, Barnabas?". Barnabas asks, "What?". Willie replies, "That girl that was attacked. The whole town's up in arms! Why did you do it?". Barnabas says, "I don't have to explain my actions to you". Willie says, "I know why you did it. You're scared and didn't know what to do.". Barnabas asks, "Scared of what?". Willie says, "I saw how scared you were when you thought Sarah was here. Barnabas, you've got to stop! You can't take chances like this!". Barnabas says angrily, "I'm telling you for the last time, stop bothering me! I want you to do something for me. I want you to go into Collinsport and find out what's going on, what's being said".

At the Evans cottage, Maggie and Woodard are alone in living room. Maggie says, "I don't remember anything, anything at all!". Woodard asks, "Try again", Maggie replies, "It's no use, I don't remember anything!". Woodard says, "All right, Maggie, let's call it quits for the day". Maggie says, "I don't think my memory will ever come back!". Woodard says, "Don't talk like that. There's hope". Maggie asks, "What were you talking to Pop about while I was out of the room?". Woodard says, "I told your father about a plan I had to catch the madman, but he didn't go along with it, so that's that". Maggie asks, "What was it?". Woodard replies, "A plan to make the man who kidnapped you come out into the open". Maggie asks, "What?". Woodard says, "Your father said no. I shouldn't even be talking to you about this", but Maggie presses him, "I want to know". Woodard tells her. Maggie exclaims, "It might work!", but Woodard says, "Sam said no, and I think I agree with his reasons". Maggie asks, "What?". Woodard replies, "It's too dangerous". Maggie says, "I want to end this once and for all!". Woodard says, "You might, but Sam said no. He said it was too dangerous, and I agree with him". Maggie says, "I've got to talk to him! We've got to go through with it! It's going to work!" After Woodard leaves, Maggie again says, "It's got to work!". She picks up the telephone and starts to dial.

There's a knock at the door. Maggie asks, "Who is it?". A voice replies, "Sheriff Patterson". She lets him in. He says, "Hello, Maggie. I got here as soon as I could. I've been thinking about this plan of yours". Maggie interrupts, "It's not my plan, it's Dr. Woodard's". Sheriff Patterson continues, "I think it has a serious flaw in it". Sam comes into the room, sees the sheriff and asks, "What are you doing here?". The sheriff explains, "Maggie sent for me.". Sam asks, "Why?". The sheriff asks, "Don't you know?". Maggie tells Sam, "Dr. Woodard's plan, I want to go through with it!". Sam exclaims, "I forbid it! Dr. Woodard shouldn't even have told you about it!". Maggie insists, "It would work, and I'll be free of all this!". She turns to sheriff and says, "Tell him!", but the sheriff says, "No, I think there's a flaw in it. If Sam walks into the Blue Whale and started saying your memory was coming back, no one would believe it. Everyone knows Sam would want to keep something like that a secret to protect you. A public announcement like that would be an obvious trap". Maggie sees his point and is depressed. Sam, relieved, starts to pour himself a drink and asks the Sheriff, "Want one?". Maggie's face suddenly lights up. She exclaims, "Unless he were drunk!". The sheriff adds, "And I were to look like I was trying to stop him from talking!". Maggie says, "It'll work!". Sam says, "No, it'll endanger your life". Maggie protests, "What life? Staying locked in here? Being afraid of seeing something every time I look out the window? Waking up at night thinking I heard something? What kind of life is that? I can't keep going on like this! I'm going insane!". A dog outside howls. Maggie screams, "Something out there's trying to get me! I'm scared! I'm afraid! This is just driving me insane! It's got to end! It's got to!". Sam asks the sheriff, "George, can you assure me the house will be secure?". The sheriff replies, "I'll have a man behind every tree". Maggie asks Sam, "You mean we have your permission to go through with it?". Sam replies, "Yes". Maggie hugs Sam and says, "Pop, thank you!". Outside, dogs continue to howl...

Willie is sitting at the bar of the Blue Whale drinking a beer. Sam comes stumbling in through the front door. The sheriff comes in right after him begging, "Sam, come on, let me drive you home!". Sam replies, "No. I need another drink!". and stumbles to the bar. The sheriff exclaims, "A drink's the last thing you need!". Sam drunkenly asks the bartender for a double 'martini' on the rocks. The bartender asks the sheriff, "All right to give him one?". The sheriff replies, "Sure, one more couldn't hurt". The sheriff orders a ginger ale for himself. The bartender pours the drinks and asks the sheriff, "Any clue about what happened to that girl yet?". The sheriff replies, "Not a clue". The bartender says, "You'd better find something quick. The people are starting to panic". Sam drunkenly chimes in, "Well, it's all going to be over in a few days!". The bartender asks the sheriff, "What does he mean? He makes it sound like you're on to something". The sheriff replies, "Nothing, he's just talking". Sam says loudly, "George, why don't you buy me a drink?". The sheriff asks, "Now why should I buy you a drink?" Sam replies, "Because in a few days, Maggie is going to make you a hero!". The bartender asks the sheriff, "What is he talking about? He's making it sound like Maggie's getting her memory back". The sheriff denies this and tells the bartender he is not to tell anyone what Sam just said. Barnabas is at the old house. Willie, who's returned, is also there. Barnabas exclaim, "What?!". Willie says, "He didn't actually come right out and say her memory was starting to come back, but he hinted it, and the sheriff tried to stop him from talking. You've got to leave town, before it's too late!". Barnabas replies, "I will never leave Collinsport!". Willie asks, "Then what are you going to do?". Barnabas replies, "You will find out. Perhaps before the night is over!".

Darkness shrouds the walls of Collinwood, and hides its secrets well. Inside the great house, all seems peaceful and serene. A frightened and disturbed boy lies sleeping. But sleep brings him no peace, for dreams can bring him one step closer to learning a terrifying and dangerous secret.

David is sleeping. He has a dream. In the dream, he is standing in Eagle Hill cemetery. Barnabas is standing in the mausoleum. David turns around. Barnabas approaches, getting bigger, and bigger, finally becoming giant sized. He opens him mouth, baring fangs...

David awakens screaming. Vicki and Burke come running into the room and both asks, "What's the matter, David?". David screams, "I'm scared!". Vicki says, "It must have been a nightmare". David says, "It was so real!". Vicki tells him, "Sometimes dreams can seem very real, but they're not. Look around you, David. You're in your own room. You're safe". David does and calms down. Burke asks, "What did you dream about?". David answers, "I don't remember". Burke asks, "You want us to stay with you for awhile?". David declines, "No, I guess I'll be OK". Vicki tells him, "We'll be downstairs if you need us". As Burke and Vicki are leaving, Burke puts his hand on the light switch. David tells him, "Burke, don't turn out the lights. Please"...

Outside in the hallway, Vicki remarks, "I'm worried about David". Burke remarks, "It was just a dream", but Vicki says, "No, something's been worrying David for the past few days, but he won't tell me what it is". David opens the door and asks, "Burke, can I talk to you? Alone?". Burke goes inside the room. David says, "Burke, I lied before. I did remember the dream". Burke asks, "Why did you lie?". David explains, "If Miss Winters heard about it, she'd get mad". Burke asks, "Why?". David replies, "Because it's about a friend of hers, Barnabas Collins, and I don't think she'd like to hear anything bad about him.". David tells Burke about the dream, though he doesn't say where it took place, only that it was at a spooking place. He tells Burke that he was frightened of Barnabas because his face was so "twisted and horrible", but doesn't seem to remember the fangs, as he does not mention them. Burke asks, "David, do you have any reason to be afraid of Barnabas?". David replies, "No". Burke asks, "Has he ever done anything to you?". David replies, "No, he just looks at me funny sometimes". Burke asks, "But has he ever really done anything to you?". David replies, "No". Burke says, "Then there's no reason for you to be afraid of him. It's probably just your imagination". David says, "Burke, If Barnabas Collins comes here, don't let him come into my room!

Burke tells Vicki about what David said. Vicki is puzzled, "Why should he be afraid of him? Barnabas is very fond of David. He was very worried when he was lost". Burke remarks, "He SAID he was worried. But sometimes children have an instinct about things. Perhaps there's more to Barnabas than meets the eye. You should have seen the way David was looking at Barnabas when I found him at Eagle Hill cemetery. He was terrified of him!". Vicki gets upset and says, "Are you suspicious of Barnabas again? I don't want to hear any of this!". Burke obediently shuts up about it and asks, "Where do you want to go this evening?". Vicki replies, "I think I should stay here tonight in
case David needs me". Burke replies, "Sure". There's a knock at the front doors. Vicki answers. It's Barnabas. He asks, "Is Dr. Hoffman in?". Vicki replies, "No". Barnabas says, "When she returns, tells her to come to the old house. Tell her something very urgent has come up" and leaves. Vicki goes back into the drawing room. Burke remarks, "I've never known Barnabas to forget his manners before. He didn't even say hello". He muses, "It appears Dr. Hoffman and Barnabas have gotten very thick. Very strange". Vicki goes upstairs to check on David. Burke goes and stares at the portrait of Barnabas.

Julia comes in through the front door. Burke tells her, "You had a visitor a few minutes ago". He gives her Barnabas' message and adds, "He seemed very anxious to find you". Burke asks her about why she seems to be interviewing only Barnabas for her book, saying, "A lot of other people around here know a lot about the history of the area. Why are you spending all your time with Mr. Collins?". Julia explains, "I just happened to start with him. When I'm finished with him, I'll move on to someone else. I believe in doing a thorough job".

At the old house, Barnabas asks, "Where IS she?". Willie replies, "She'll be here. She'll take care of everything.". Barnabas says, "She assured me she had everything under control!". Julia comes. She asks Barnabas, "What do you want?". Barnabas exclaims, "Doctor, you've blundered! This may be the end of everything! Maggie Evans' memory is staring to return! Tell her Willie!". Willie tells Julia what happened at the Blue Whale, concluding, "It can mean only one thing. Her memory is starting to come back!" Julia exclaims, "Impossible! The only way she could remember anything is if I hypnotized her and told her to remember!". Barnabas tells Julia, "I'll give you one more change. Go to her tonight, and make sure her memory is gone". Julia says, "I can't go to her". Barnabas asks, "Why not?". Julia explains, "She's no longer my patient. Dr. Woodard took me off her case." Barnabas asks, "Why?". Julia replies, "He was getting suspicious. We got into an argument, and he took me off the case". Barnabas angrily exclaims, "Another blunder! This could mean your life!" Once again he threatens Julia. They argue. Julia insists, "Wait. Wait a few days! You'll see. Maggie's memory won't return". Barnabas asks, "And if it does?". Julia assures him, "It won't. You'll see that". Barnabas says, "Perhaps you're right. Perhaps my fears are without cause". Julia asks, "Then you won't do anything to Maggie Evans?". Barnabas replies, "No, not until I see she's a real threat to me". Julia tells him, "It's time for your injection. I'll go downstairs and prepare it". She goes downstairs. Willie goes about the room lighting candles. As he does so, he looks at Barnabas strangely. Finally, he says, "Barnabas, you're planning something, aren't you?". Barnabas asks, "Am I?". Willie says, "You're planning to kill Maggie Evans, I know you are. You lied to Dr. Hoffman. You're planning to kill Maggie Evans!". Barnabas asks, "Do I have a choice?" Willie asks, "Why don't you wait? See if she really remembers anything". Barnabas replies, "I can't afford to wait. She's too much of a threat to my existence, and yours". Willie asks, "When are you planning to do it?". Barnabas replies, "When the moon disappears behind the clouds and I am able to move about unseen". Willie asks, "You mean tonight?". Barnabas replies, "Yes, tonight!", goes to the window and looks out menacingly...

The Moon over Collinwood is partially obscured by mists from the sea. It is almost as if the Earth is struggling to hide its secrets. For this is to be a night of terror. A trap has been set for one who would destroy. One who, at this moment, is making a frightening and dangerous decision.

Willie begs, "Barnabas, you can't hurt her!", but Barnabas replies, "I have no choice". Willie warns, "You'll never get away with it! They're watching her too closely, her father and Joe Haskell!". Barnabas, irritated, replies, "Don't you think I'm clever enough to get past them?". Willie asks, "What about Dr. Hoffman? You promised her you wouldn't do anything to Maggie Evans! She'll get angry and expose you!". Barnabas calmly says, "I can handle Dr. Hoffman". Julia comes up with the injection. She remarks, "I must say I'm very pleased tonight. I think for the first time, you're really starting to trust me. You believe I have complete control of the situation and I do.". Barnabas lies, "I trust you completely, Doctor". Willie looks on, a strange expression on his face...

At the Evans Cottage, Sam goes into Maggie's room. He asks, "Maggie, did I startle you? Don't be afraid. There's no need to be. There are men everywhere. Just scream and they'll come running". Maggie, looking out the French doors, says, "I don't see anyone". Sam explains, "That's because they're too well hidden". Maggie asks, "You think he'll come tonight?". Sam replies, "I hope he never comes". Maggie remarks, "I hope he does so we can end this thing once and for all.". Sam assures her, "Maggie, you're well protected. No one can get into this house!". Sam asks Maggie if she's going to go to sleep yet. Maggie replies, "No, I think I'm going to read for awhile. Sam says goodnight and leaves. Maggie opens a book, and sits down in an armchair to read it. Outside, Sarah appears and looks over the picket fence...

Maggie dozes off and drops her book. Sarah, now in the room, says, "You shouldn't go to sleep that way! People aren't supposed to sleep in chairs!". Maggie wakes up with a start and says, "Sarah! What are you doing here?". Sarah replies, "I don't know." Maggie asks, "How did you get in?". Sarah replies, "I found a way". Maggie asks, "And no one saw you?". Sarah replies, "I don't think so". Maggie exclaims, "That's Impossible! All the doors and windows are locked!". Sarah replies, "I have a way of getting into place I want to get into". Maggie tells Sarah, "I have to go out for a minute to get a glass of milk. You want one?". Sarah exclaims, "No! I know why you really want to go out! You want to tell your father about me!". Maggie admits that she does, "You'll like him. He's a very nice person. You'll like him", but Sarah says, "No! I came here to see you! If anyone else comes into this room, I'll leave!". Maggie says, "All right. Why did you want to see me about?". Sarah replies, "I don't remember... I know! The doll! Where's the doll I gave you?". Maggie replies, "I don't have it. I lent it to a friend named Dr. Woodard". Sarah says, "You've got to get it back! It's important you have it tonight!". Maggie asks, "Why?". Sarah replies, "It just is, that's all!". Maggie says, "All right, Sarah". Sarah says, "I have to go now". Maggie says, "Don't!, wait a minute!". She goes to the bedroom door, opens it, and shouts, "Pop! Pop!", but when she turns she sees that Sarah is gone...

Sam comes running and asks, "Maggie, what's the matter?". Maggie exclaims, "She was here, the little girl, Sarah!". Sam asks, "How could she have gotten in?". Maggie replies, "I don't know! I dozed off for a minute, and when I woke up, there she was! She wouldn't tell me how she got in!". Sam suggests, "Maybe it was a dream", but Maggie insists, "No! She was here! She asked me where her doll was. When I told her I gave it to Dr. Woodard, she said I had to get it back tonight! It seemed like she was trying to warn me!".

At Collinwood, Julia comes down into the courtyard. Willie sees her from outside the fence. He comes into the courtyard and says, "Dr. Hoffman! It's me! Willie!". Julia asks, "Willie, did you just throw pebbles at my window?". Willie replies, "Yes. It's Barnabas. You've got to stop him! He's planning to kill Maggie Evans tonight!". Julia replies, "He wouldn't kill Maggie Evans, he wouldn't'! It'd jeopardize everything! I told him that!". Willie tells her, "He thinks he can get away with it! You're the only one who can stop him! You've got to do something before it's too late!". Julia agrees to do something. Willie asks, "What are you going to do?". Julia replies, "Go to the old house and talk to him." Willie asks, "What are you going to say to him?". Julia replies, "I'm going to reason with him. He's an intelligent man. I'm sure he'll listen to reason. Stay here". Willie asks, "You don't want me to go with you?". Julia replies, "No, I think it'd be best if I talked to him alone".

Sam comes back into Maggie's room through the French doors and tells Maggie, "Nothing. They didn't see so much as a cat." Maggie says, "That doesn't make sense!". Sam agrees, "No, it doesn't". Maggie says, "I still get the feeling Sarah was trying to warn me about something. Did you call Joe?". Sam replies, "Yes, he's going to go to Dr. Woodard right away and bring the doll here". Maggie says, "Good. I know it sounds silly, but I have the feeling it's necessary I have that doll tonight...". Outside, dogs start to howl. Maggie moans, "Why do they have to howl like that, Pop, why?"

At the old house, Barnabas stares out the window, sees that the moon has gone behind the clouds and thinks to himself, "At last, darkness has come! Goodbye, Maggie Evans. I might have loved you, I might have spared you, but now, you must die!".

Tonight, someone may die near Collinwood. A death, sudden, unexpected and violent. At this moment, a decision made by one man will trigger the inevitable march toward destruction.

Barnabas goes and gets his coat and cane, then goes to the front door and opens it. To his great surprise, Julia is standing there with an extremely stern look on her face. He remarks, "Well, Dr. Hoffman". Julia asks, "Where are you going?". Barnabas replies, "Out". Julia says, "That's not much of an answer". Barnabas says, "I was about to go out for a walk". Julia tells him, "I must speak to you". Barnabas asks, "Can't it wait?". Julia replies, "No, it's very important". Barnabas says, "Very well, come in" and asks, "What's so urgent?". Julia replies, "I know what you plan to do. You plan to kill Maggie Evans". Barnabas denies it, but Julia says, "I know. I've talked to Willie. He told me what you said". Barnabas lies, "He's a highly unreliable young man. He must have been exaggerating". Julia asks, "You mean you're NOT going to kill Maggie Evans?". Barnabas lies, "No, Willie is a very nervous young man. He must have misunderstood what I was saying. What I actually said was that if Maggie Evan's memory started to return, then I would find it necessary to kill her". Julia assures him, "I told you, her memory won't return". Barnabas lies, "And I believe you. I trust you implicitly." Julia says, "You know something, Barnabas? I don't believe you. I think you're lying to me". Barnabas says, "Well, if that's true, then there's nothing you can do about it. You merely have to accept what happens". Julia warns him, "Before you kill Maggie, there's one thing I think you should know. If you kill her, you'll be revealed for what you are and destroyed". Barnabas asks, "Are you saying you don't think I could kill Maggie without being captured?". Julia replies, "No, I'm quite aware that you're capable of killing Maggie Evans without being caught. I was talking about something else. Recently, I gave a letter to a friend with instructions to give it to the authorities in the event of my death or Maggie Evans's death. That letter contains a description of what you are". Barnabas exclaims, "You did that?!". Julia replies, "Yes. So if you kill Maggie, you'll destroy yourself". Barnabas says, "Congratulations, Doctor. Once again, you seem to have the upper hand. Of course, you might be bluffing. There might not be such a letter". Julia replies, "Then again, there might be. You can't afford to take the chance. Think it over. I'm sure you'll decide it's best if you leave Maggie Evans alone". Julia leaves. Barnabas goes to the window and stares out it.

Maggie is sleeping in her room. Suddenly, she bolts up and screams, "Pop! Pop!". Sam comes running in and asks, "Maggie, what is it? Did you see something? Hear something?". Maggie replies, "No, but I've just had the oddest sensation. I felt it once before, when I disappeared. I feel like there are these terrible eyes watching me, terrible, terrible eyes watching me, piercing through me...". At the old house, Barnabas is staring out the window...

Sam opens the French doors and looks out. Maggie asks, "See anything?" Sam replies, "No, nothing". Maggie says, "Maybe it's my imagination". Sam replies, "Sure, your imagination is probably working overtime right now. You've got to realize we're not going to let anything happen to you. The back yard is swarming with policemen ready to protect you. Just keep telling yourself you're safe. Come on, let's go make a pot of coffee".

Julia returns to the garden of Collinwood and calls, "Willie!". Willie comes out of hiding behind some bushes and asks, "What happened?". Julia tells him, "Everything's under control". Willie asks, "He's not going to kill Maggie?". Julia replies, "No, I talked him out of it". Willie asks, "How? He's convinced he can get away with it". Julia tells him about telling Barnabas about the letter. Willie asks, "Is that true, is there actually such a letter?" Julia replies, "No, I lied". Willie warns, "Barnabas is hard to fool. He knows when people are lying". Julia assures him, "He believes it". Willie asks, "How can you be sure?". Julia tells him, "I saw the expression on his face when I left. He's frightened". Willie remarks, "That's hard to believe". Julia insists, "I assure you, Maggie Evans is safe"

At the old house, Barnabas thinks to himself, "Was she lying to me? Is there a letter? Would she expose me to save Maggie Evans? I don't think so. But would she expose me in the event of her own death? Yes. Wait! The night I first brought her to the house I threatened to kill her. She would've said anything to save her own life, but she said nothing about a letter. She's lying! There is no letter! You're not clever enough, Doctor. Maggie Evans will die tonight, and no power on earth can prevent it!". Suddenly, the room fills with the sound of a flute playing "London Bridge". Barnabas exclaims, "Sarah! Sarah! I know you're near by! Where are you? Where are you? Sarah! Sarah!"

Sam and Joe Haskell look in on Maggie. Sam says quietly, "Maggie?". Joe stops him, "Don't wake her!". Maggie says, "I'm not asleep!". Joe asks, "How do you feel?". Maggie replies, "OK". Joe tells her, "I brought the doll". Maggie asks, "Did Pop tell you she was here?" Joe replies, "Yes, he told me". Maggie says, "She told me I had to have the doll. It was like a warning. I wonder what she was warning me about? Maybe the madman is going to come tonight.". Sam assures her, "No one is going to get in here". Joe tells her, "I got 20 feet from the house and was immediately surrounded." Sam says, "They would've shot him if I hadn't told them he was coming". Joe assures Maggie, "You're safe". Maggie wonders, "I wonder what I'm supposed to have this doll for?". Joe tells her, "I'm going to be spending the night here. I'll be right outside all night". Sam tells Maggie, "Don't be afraid". Maggie replies, "I'm not afraid. I feel strange. Don't you feel it? I feel it all around me. A feeling of warmth. Warm, warm, all around me.". Sam says, "You're just falling asleep, Maggie. Don't fight it.". Maggie mutters, "Warm, warm, not afraid, not afraid". and falls asleep. Sam and Joe leave the room.

Willie is still in the courtyard of Collinwood. He thinks to himself, "Dr. Hoffman was wrong. She didn't fool Barnabas. No one can fool Barnabas. He's going to kill Maggie tonight. Then what next? David, probably, then Devlin and anyone else who gets to close to learning his secret, and I'll have to stand by and watch it as long as I live. I've got to do something. I've got to go warn Maggie Evans, warn her to get out of town. Yes, that's what I'll do. Oh, what's the use. I'm just kidding myself. I can't do that. Barnabas will find out. There's nothing I can do, nothing at all, nothing!"

Sam and Joe are outside the house talking. Joe says, "I've been thinking about Maggie. I think we should get her out of town". Sam agrees, "Yes, I have relatives in Canada. I've been thinking of sending her there". Joe remarks, "I think it's important that no one knows where she's gone". Sam agrees, "Yes". Joe remarks, "Now if only we can get through this night without anything happening". The church bell chimes. Sam notes, "There's not much of it left. It's 1:00. Come on, let's go have some coffee". They go inside.

Maggie's black "Big Ben" alarm clock reads 3:08. Maggie is sound asleep, clutching Sarah's doll.

Two of the police stand watch outside. One says, "Did you hear something?". The other replies, "Yes". The first says, "There! Over there in the shadows! Don't make a sound! Let's see if he goes near the house!".

The shadow of a man appears at Maggie's French doors. The man starts to try to open the doors. Suddenly, there is a shout, "Halt! Don't move!". The figure disappears. A voice shouts, "Don't run!". Maggie awakens and screams, "Pop!". Outside, the night is filled with the staccato sound of gunfire. Sam runs into the room and screams, "Maggie!". Maggie screams, "Pop! He was here!". A policeman comes bursting in and announces, "You're safe now". Sam asks, "Get him?". The policeman replies, "Yes". Maggie asks, "Is he dead?". The policeman replies, "It would be a miracle if he isn't. He's got about five bullets in his back".

The great house on the Collins estate is dark, and a stillness pervades the night. But not far away, the stillness will soon be shattered and, for one man, the night will end in violence.

Sam takes Maggie out into the living room. Joe comes in through the front door. Sam asks, "Who was it?". Joe replies, "Willie Loomis". Maggie exclaims, "Willie? That's incredible!". Sam says, "He's dead now. Now you can resume a normal life". The Sheriff, who's come into the house, says, "You can resume a normal life, but he's not dead". Maggie, in a worried voice, asks "He's alive?". The sheriff assures her, "Don't worry. He's no longer a danger to you." He makes a phone call to Dr. Woodard, tells him what happened and asks him to come.

Maggie remarks, "Willie Loomis, it's hard to believe. He seemed like such a harmless person". Sam agrees, "He's the last person I would've suspected". The Sheriff asks, "Why?". Sam replies, "I expected a large, powerful person. Willie's such a small person, a quiet type". Joe reminds them, "He wasn't always the quiet type". They discuss Willie's sudden change after he went to work for Barnabas. Maggie asks, "What if you've gotten the wrong man?". The sheriff replies, "There's no doubt about it. My men waited till the last possible minute when they were sure he was going to break in". A deputy comes in and tells the Sheriff that Dr. Woodard has come and is examining Willie outside. The sheriff reminds Sam, "Remember, Willie was at the Blue Whale that night we were there". Sam says, "That's right!". The sound of an ambulance siren fills the air. The Sheriff says, "I'm going to have to go to Collinwood to notify Barnabas Collins about what's happened". Maggie remarks, "He'll be devastated. He tried so hard to reform Willie...".

At the old house, Barnabas paces around nervously. He picks up the family album, looks at the picture of Sarah and says, "Why don't you appear to me, Sarah? You've appeared to so many people, but not me. Are you angry with me? If you would only appear to me once and let me see you again!". Julia comes in. Barnabas asks, "What are you doing here?". Julia replies, "I couldn't sleep so I figured I'd come and do some work". Noticing his strange demeanor, she asks, "Upset about something, Barnabas? What is it?". Barnabas says, "Never mind". Julia remarks, "Good to see you followed my advice and didn't go after Maggie Evans". Barnabas asks, "Did you really think I believed you about the letter?". Julia asks, "Then you DID decide to kill Maggie Evans!". Barnabas replies, "Yes". Julia asks, "Then what happened? Sarah! Sarah stopped you again!". Barnabas admits, "Yes". There's a knock at the door. Julia asks, "Who could that be?". Barnabas answers the door. It's the sheriff. Barnabas asks, "What can I do for you, sheriff?". Sheriff Patterson replies, "I'm afraid I have some unfortunate news for you. You have a man working for you named Willie Loomis. I'm afraid he's been caught trying to break into Maggie Evan's room. He's been shot, but is still alive. We have every reason to believe he's the man who kidnapped Maggie and is responsible for the attacks in town." Barnabas exclaims, "Sheriff, I don't know what to say! I can't believe it!". The sheriff tells Barnabas, "I'll have to ask you some questions about him and his daily activities, but that can wait till later. I'm sure you're quite shocked by all this". Barnabas asks, "You say Willie's still alive?". The sheriff replies, "Yes". Barnabas asks, "Has he given a statement?". The sheriff explains, "No, he hasn't regained consciousness and there's not much hope that he will. Dr. Woodard says there's not much chance he'll survive. He's operating on him right now". Barnabas asks, "And Miss Evans?". The sheriff replies, "She's all right. Willie was shot before he could get in." Barnabas tells the sheriff, "I'd like to see her and tell her how sorry I am about all this". The sheriff says, Sheriff, "Sure. I'm going over there right now. You're welcome to come with me". The sheriff goes out the door. Barnabas gives Julia a strange look, then they leave too.

Outside the Evans Cottage, the sheriff is talking to Barnabas and Julia about what happened. Barnabas exclaims, "Willie, a kidnapper, I just can't believe it!". The sheriff asks, "Would you like to go in and see Maggie Evans now?". They go in. Barnabas says to Maggie, "Miss Evans, I hope you don't mind me coming around so soon after all this happened. I had to come and say how sorry I feel about what happened. I made a serious error in judgment about Willie. I thought I had rehabilitated him. Are you all right?". Maggie replies, "Yes". Sam says, "It was close, but when we set the trap we knew it would be close". Barnabas looking shocked asks, "Trap?". Sam explains the trap. Julia asks, "You mean Maggie wasn't starting to remember?". Sam replies, "No". Julia asks Maggie, "How's your memory now?". Maggie replies, "I'm afraid I still don't remember anything". The Sheriff comes in and says, "I just spoke to Dr. Woodard. He's managed to remove all but one of the bullets. Willie's in a coma right now. I hope he'll be able to talk. It's the one way of being absolutely certain we have the right man".

Barnabas is back at the old house, dressed in a bathrobe, pacing about nervously. There's a knock at the door. Barnabas opens it. It's Julia. She comes in. Barnabas asks, "Did you see him?". Julia replies, "No, I couldn't get near him". Barnabas asks, "And Dr. Woodard. Did you see him?" Julia replies, "No, he was operating on Willie". Barnabas complains, "Nothing's going right tonight!". Julia says, "I did manage to see the medical report. It'll be a miracle if Willie comes out of the coma." Barnabas asks, "What if he DOES come out of it? When he learns he's been accused of kidnapping Maggie Evans, he'll talk his fool head off!". Julia assures him, "He won't. He'll die, and everyone will think he did it, and you'll be completely in the clear". Barnabas asks, "And Maggie? What if she remembers?". Julia replies, "She won't. If what happened tonight didn't jar her memory, nothing will". Barnabas remarks, "You'd better be right, Doctor. This time, you'd better be right!".

At the Evans Cottage, Sam and Joe look in Maggie, who's sleeping peacefully and remark on how it's the first good sleep she's had in a long time.

Barnabas is now alone in the old house, Julia having left. He muses, "Completely in the clear! No, far from it. Maggie Evan's mind is blank. Miss Hoffman has assured me of that, so I won't have to worry about her for the time being. Willie will die, that's reasonably certain to happen. But that leaves one more person who can expose me. Little cousin David. Now something must be done to keep him from exposing me, and it must be done soon!"

We live under a delusion here at Collinwood. We believe the evil that has plagued our days and nights has been done away with. But there is a little boy who believes the evil is still in our midst. He, alone amongst us, continues to live in constant fear.

David opens the front doors of Collinwood. From behind, inside the foyer, Elizabeth asks, "David! Where are you going?". David answers, "Out". Elizabeth, irritated, says, "I can see that! Why?". David replies, "To see Sarah". Elizabeth tells him, "You've got to finish your lessons before Vicki gets back". David exclaims, "I can't! I have to talk to Sarah!". Elizabeth asks, "What about?". David replies, "I can't tell you". Elizabeth demands, "Come back in here and finish your lessons!". David comes back inside into the foyer. He turns and stares at Barnabas' portrait. Elizabeth asks, "David, if something is troubling you, I'd wish you'd tell me what it is". David runs up stairs without saying a word. Elizabeth looks at the portrait of Barnabas, a puzzled look on her face.

The front door opens. Vicki comes in. Elizabeth says, "Vicki, you're back. Could you come into the drawing room for a moment? I'd like to talk to you". They go into the drawing room. Vicki explains, "I was at Maggie's house a little longer than I had planned. I hope you don't mind". Elizabeth replies, "Not at all. How's Maggie? She's been through quite an ordeal". Vicki replies, "Like a new person! They got a report from the hospital while I was there. Willie's still in a coma. They don't expect him to live another day. I can't believe it was Willie! I can't believe he was capable of kidnapping!". Elizabeth remarks, "I can. Anyone who could call himself a friend of Jason McGuire is capable of anything. Let's get off this subject. I wanted to talk to you about David.". She tells Vicki David's been acting strangely. Vicki agrees, "He seems to be terrified about something. He's been acting strangely ever since that day he was found outside the mausoleum. I've asked him if anything's wrong, but he won't tell me anything". Elizabeth suggests, "I suppose he's still frightened because he was lost in the woods", but Vicki points out "But he's safe now. There's nothing for him to be afraid of". Elizabeth tells Vicki, "I think you'd better watch him closely. I think it would be best if he didn't go out alone for awhile.". Vicki assures her, "Don't worry, I'll take very good care of him"

In the study, David is sitting at a desk staring at a piece of paper. Vicki, sitting behind him, says, "All right, David. Time's up". She goes to him and is surprised he hasn't written a word. She asks, "Where's your composition?". David replies, "I didn't do it.". Vicki asks, "Why not?". David replies, "I didn't have anything to write". Vicki says, "But earlier, you said you had it all planned out! David, what's the matter?". David exclaims, "Nothing!". Vicki says, "Something's bothering you. I wish you'd tell me what it is". David replies, "I'm just not in the mood to do a stupid composition!". Vicki says, "David, look at me. You're frightened of something. Tell me what it is". David insists, "Nothing! I'm not frightened of anything!". Julia comes into the study. Seeing Vicki and David, she says "Oh, sorry if I'm interrupting something". Vicki replies, "No, you're not interrupting anything. The lesson's over". She asks David, "David, would you like to go for a walk?".
David says, "I thought you said I wasn't allowed to go outside". Vicki corrects him, "I said you weren't allowed to go out alone. You won't be alone. You'll be coming with me to the old house.". Julia asks, "The old house?". Vicki explains, "What happened with Willie must have been quite a shock to Barnabas. I think I should talk to him". David tells Vicki, "I don't want to go for a walk!". Vicki asks, "Why not?". David replies, "I don't want to go to the old house, and I don't think you should either" Vicki asks, "Why?". David replies, "Because it isn't safe!". Vicki, puzzled, asks, "Now that's a switch. I used to be the one warning YOU not to go to the old house because it wasn't safe. But that was before Barnabas restored it. It's safe now.". David repeats, "I don't want to go to the old house and I don't want to see Cousin Barnabas!". Vicki tells him, "All right, David. You've made your point. Go to your room and wait for me there". David leaves. Vicki says, "I guess I'll see Barnabas alone". Julia tells her, "Don't waste your time. He's not home right now. He'll be home early tonight". Vicki remarks, "I have a notion about Barnabas. I think he sleeps during the day because he's so enamored of the night!". Julia laughs, "I think you're right. He's certainly the most dedicated night person I know!"

Dr. Woodard comes to Collinwood to talk with Julia. In the privacy of the study, Julia asks, "Tell me, what's the prognosis on Willie?". Woodard replies, "I managed to get the last bullet out of him at about 6:30 this morning. His condition's substantially the same". Julia asks, "Do you think he'll live?". Woodard replies, "I'd put the chances at about 1 in 100". Julia asks, "What happens if he does pull through? Will he be able to talk?". Woodard replies, "We hope he will". Julia tells him, "I'm only asking because I hope he does talk. It'll justify my suspicions". Woodard, in a surprised tone, asks, "You mean you've suspected Willie all along ?!". Julia replies, "Yes". Woodard asks, "What caused you to suspect him?". Julia replies, "It's a long, complicated story. You'll read all about it in my report". Woodard presses her to tell him. Finally, Julia says, "I had several long conversations with Willie in which I detected symptoms of psychopathic behavior". Woodard asks, "But what about Sarah? How does she fit in?". Julia says, "She has no bearing on this case. The kidnapper has been caught, and the case is closed". Woodard remarks, "I suppose you'll be going back to Windcliff now". Julia replies, "Not yet. I can't just pack up and leave abruptly". Woodard says, "You could tell Elizabeth who you really are and what you've been doing now". Julia replies, "I'd prefer not to do that. I have my reasons. I'll wait awhile pretending to be finishing up my research, then I'll pack up and go". Woodard asks, "Are you sure you don't have another reason for staying?". Julia says, "I don't know what you're talking about". Woodard tells her, "I'm not blind, Julia. While you've been here, you've been showing a lot of attention on one man. Barnabas Collins". Julia, looking alarmed, sputters, "No...., it's just...". Woodard smiles and says, "You don't have to apologize! Romantic interests never hurt anyone!". Julia laughs, "I didn't say he was the reason I was staying!". Woodard laughs and says, "You don't have to, Julia, you don't have to!"

After Woodard leaves, Julia goes into the drawing room where she finds Vicki sitting on the couch, deep in thought. Julia asks, "Thinking about David? I was too. I was disturbed by his behavior in the study earlier. Why do you think he's so afraid of the old house? He never was before. Do you think it could have anything to do with Barnabas?". Vicki replies, "I shouldn't think so. After all, it was Barnabas who found him". Julia asks, "Do you think it would help if I talked with him?"

Elizabeth goes into David's room and says, "Vicki told me you didn't do your lessons. It's obvious there's something bothering you. It'd be better if you talked to someone about it. You're afraid of something. Is it of being attacked by the man who kidnapped Maggie? If that's it, you no longer have to worry. He's been caught". David exclaims, "It wasn't Willie! They've got the wrong man!". Elizabeth tells him, "It was the right man. They caught him trying to break into Maggie's room". David exclaims, "Sarah! I've got to find Sarah. She'll know if it was Willie! I've got to find her right now!" and runs out the door.

In the drawing room, Julia and Vicki continue to discuss what's troubling David. Suddenly, they hear a commotion in the foyer. They hear Elizabeth's voice shouting, "David, you can't go out!". David's voice shouts back, "I've got to find Sarah!". Suddenly, David screams, "I don't believe it!". Julia and Vicki rush out to see what's the matter. David is staring at Barnabas' portrait saying, "The eyes! The eyes! No! No! Leave me alone!". Elizabeth asks David, "What the matter?". David shouts, "The eyes in the painting! They were alive! They were staring at me!"

The brilliance of the Moon and all the stars in the sky over Collinwood cannot prevent the shadow of terror from visiting one of us tonight. Young David Collins has learned part of the secret behind the evil at Collinwood, and now he lives in a state of constant fear.

It is night. David, dressed in pajamas and bathrobe, comes down into the foyer. He walks to the portrait of Barnabas and stares at it. He recalls Barnabas saying to him, "Hello, David. I've been looking for you, but now I've found you, haven't I? What were you doing in the mausoleum, David. Is there something in there that fascinates you? I think you're keeping something from me. Do you know what happens to little boys who lie to their elders? What did your little friend Sarah tell you? I think you should come back to the old house with me. Perhaps your memory will improve there...". He screams, "NO! I don't want to go to the old house! I want to go back to Collinwood! Let me go!". Elizabeth comes and shouts, "David!". David runs up the stairs...

In his room, David thinks to himself, "Cousin Barnabas could tell I was lying, he could tell I knew about the secret room. Sarah said no one knew about the secret room, but Barnabas knew about it. How? Sarah, I'm scared! Where are you when I need you?". Vicki comes in and asks, "Who were you talking to?". David replies, "No one". Vicki says, "But I heard you talking". David lies, "I was just playing a game". Vicki tells David it's time to go to bed. David asks if he can stay up a little longer so he can finish putting his stamps into he stamp collecting album. Vicki says, "All right, but no later than 9:30. I'll be downstairs in the drawing room if you need me".

Vicki goes down into the foyer and finds Elizabeth at the door putting on her coat. Vicki asks, "Going outside?". Elizabeth replies, "Yes. To the old house. I've got to talk to Barnabas. Something's got to be done about David.". Vicki asks, "Why do you think Barnabas can help?". Elizabeth replies, "He seems to be what David's afraid of". Vicki remarks, "I think he'll be as puzzled as we are. The trouble is he won't talk to anyone". Elizabeth asks, "There must be someone he'll talk to". Vicki suggests, "There's Burke. He gets along quite well with David.". Elizabeth asks, "Have you two set the date yet?". Vicki replies, "Soon, after all the legal matters concerning the house are completed". Elizabeth says, "The way David is, he might find it hard to adjust to another governess". Vicki says, "I understand. We could move the date back a little". There's a knock at the door. Elizabeth answers. It's Barnabas. Elizabeth tells him, "What a coincidence. I was just about to go down and see you". Vicki says, "I'll go upstairs", but Barnabas, says, "No, I'd like you to hear this too". They all go into the drawing room.

In the drawing room, Barnabas apologizes for Willie. Elizabeth tells him, "There's no need for you to apologize for what Willie did.". Barnabas points out, "I did harbor him. I'm concerned that I might have harmed the name of the Collins Family". Elizabeth tells him, "I don't care about that. Actually, I wanted to talk to you about a different matter. David. The night you found him outside the mausoleum, did anything happen?". Barnabas replies, "No". Elizabeth tells him, "David seems terrified day and night and won't tell anyone why". Barnabas asks, "Do you have any idea of the cause?". Elizabeth replies, "I don't know how to tell you this. We don't know why, but he seems to be afraid of YOU. When you found him, did you do or say anything that he might have misunderstood, that might have frightened him?". Barnabas says, "I don't think so". Elizabeth says, "Maybe we're grasping at straws". Barnabas suggests, "It could be his imagination". Vicki remarks, "The cause of his fear might be imaginary, but the fear is certainly real". Barnabas suggests, "Perhaps it would help if I talked to him. Don't worry. I'll be very gentle with him...".

There's a knock at David's bedroom door. He opens it. Elizabeth enters, bringing Barnabas in with her. Barnabas says, "Good evening, David". David, shocked, exclaims, "Cousin Barnabas! What are you doing here?". Elizabeth explains, "He wants to talk to you". David asks, "What about?". Elizabeth replies, "I'll let him tell you" and leaves. Barnabas tells David, "Both Vicki and your Aunt Elizabeth say you're afraid. What are you afraid of?". David lies, "Nothing!". Barnabas says, "They say you're afraid of ME. Why?". David lies, "I'm not!". Barnabas tells David, "Sit down, David. You look as frightened as you were the night I found you outside the mausoleum. You're keeping a secret. What is it? Where were you the night you were lost?". David insists, "I've already told you". Barnabas says, "I know where you REALLY were. You were inside the secret room Sarah told you about, weren't you?". David lies, "I don't anything about any secret room". Barnabas takes David's knife out of his pocket, holds it up and asks, "Then how did your knife get in there?". David, not thinking, instinctively exclaims, "My knife!", then lies, "I don't know...". Barnabas asks, "You were in the secret room. Sarah must have told you about it. What other secrets did little Sarah tell you? Did she tell you about her family, her father, her mother, her brother?". David replies, "No! She didn't tell me anything!". Barnabas says, "If you're lying, David, I'll get very angry when I find out!". Vicki comes in to see how it's going, interrupting him. She remarks that it's getting late. Barnabas says, "Good night, David. Pleasant dreams..."

David is in bed, tossing and turning restlessly under his blanket. Dreaming, he starts to recall voices, he recalls asking Sarah, "Sarah, who's in that coffin?". Sarah replies, "No one. It's empty". He asks, "Why would anyone put an empty coffin in here". Sarah replies, "It wasn't always empty. Someone was in it once, but he went away". He exclaims, "Oh, come on, Sarah, dead people don't just get up and walk away", but Sarah insists, "Sometimes they do...".

David dreams. He's in a room somewhere. He sees a woman standing there. The woman's face cannot be seen as it is her hair falls forward completely covering it. David asks, "I looking for someone", but the woman does not answer. She takes out a medallion on a chain and dangles it in front of him. David asks, "What are you doing? I've got to find Sarah." He leaves, calling "Sarah! Sarah!". Suddenly, he finds himself standing in the cemetery outside the mausoleum. He calls, "Sarah, where are you?". A voice from inside the mausoleum replies, "In here, David". David goes inside. He tells Sarah, "Sarah, it time I asked you some questions". Sarah replies, "About what?". David asks, "About you. Who are you and where do you come from?". Sarah answers, "That's easy. I was born the same place you were. I lived on a house on a hill until I was 9 years old. Then I got very sick. Everyone came to see me and were very sad". David asks, "Because you were sick?". Sarah replies, "No, because I died". David asks, "If you died, what are you doing here?" Sarah replies, "I came to look for someone". David ask "Who?". Sarah replies, "Come with me". David follows Sarah and finds himself in a room he's doesn't recognize. It's the cellar of the old house. David exclaims, "Sarah! There's a coffin here!". Sarah nonchalantly replies, "I know". David says, "Just like the secret room. Is this coffin empty too?" Sarah answers, "No. It's not empty". The coffin starts to open. Sarah continues, "That's who I came to find". The coffin opens fully. Barnabas sits up, gets out of the coffin. David, terrified, runs off into a corner. Seeing Sarah, Barnabas says, "Sarah, my little Sarah, you've come back. You've come at last!" He starts to walk towards her . David screams, "Watch out, Sarah, he'll get you! Get away from him!". Barnabas turns and goes toward David, who's cowering against the wall, raises his walking stick and prepares to strike...

The night brings to Collinwood an austere and lonely silence. Inside the Great House this night, a child will have a dream. And, for him, the dream will be a revelation of the evil that still threatens us all.

David screams, "No! No! Stay away from me! Someone please help me!". Vicki, hearing this, comes running into the room and shouts, "David, wake up!". David awakens and cries, "Vicki, he's after me, he going to kill me!". Vicki says, "It was just a dream", but David replies, "No, I saw him, he was going after Sarah! He was in a coffin in a room somewhere! Vicki, he's dead!". Vicki asks, "Who's dead?" David replies, "Cousin Barnabas!" Vicki says, "That proves it was a dream. Cousin Barnabas is very much alive". David replies, "He isn't dead all of the time, just some of the time! Sarah's dead too! Sarah's a ghost!". Vicki dismisses all this as a dream. Davie insists, "It wasn't a dream! I remember it all clearly! Except the lady in the shadows. I couldn't see her face, she just kept shining some jewelry at me." Vicki says, "I think it was a dream". David insists, "It wasn't! I'll prove it to you!!!". Vicki asks, "How?". David replies, "I'll go into the woods, find Sarah, and find the room with the coffin in it!". Vicki tells him, "No, you're not going anywhere tomorrow. You're going to stay home and rest". David says, "Well, if you won't let me go, there are other ways of contacting Sarah. I'll just think hard about her and she'll come". Vicki asks, "How?". David replies, "Haven't you been listening to what I've been saying? Sarah's dead! Sarah's a ghost!".

At the old house, Julia is sitting in an armchair reading a book. Barnabas returns, coming in through the front doors. He sees her reading and caustically remarks, "You have nothing better to do than read books at a time like this?". Julia replies, "You like looking through your family albums, I like reading medical journals". Barnabas tells her, "Put the book away. I have things to talk about". Julia asks, "What? Where have you been?". Barnabas replies, "I've had a revealing and disturbing night. I've visited cousin David and gone to the hospital.". Julia asks, "Why the hospital?". Barnabas replies, "I was hoping to hear news that our dear friend Willie had passed away". Julia asks, "Has he?". Barnabas replies, "No, he's clinging to life like a leech. Why hasn't he died yet?". Julia replies, "I don't know. I'm not his doctor.". Barnabas remarks, "Every moment he stays alive, he's a danger to me". Julia assures him, "Barnabas, he's going to die", but Barnabas replies, "But when? Perhaps it's time I took control of the situation.". Julia asks, "What do you mean?". Barnabas replies, "Perhaps I should take care of Willie before we hear he's miraculously recovered and is writing his memoirs". Julia warns against it, saying, "The sheriff and everyone else believe it was Willie who kidnapped Maggie. If you kill Willie, they'll know it was someone else and reopen the investigation". Barnabas asks, "What about David. I asked him some questions and know he's lying". Julia again warns him, "If you kill David, it'll be the blunder of your life". Barnabas asks, "Should I stand idly by while he tells everyone about me?". Julia says, "Barnabas, perhaps there's a safer way of silencing David. I don't know why I didn't think of this before.". Barnabas asks, "What?". Julia replies, "I can fix David's curiosity the same way I fixed Maggie's memory". Barnabas asks, "You mean hypnosis?". Julia replies, "Yes".

Julia returns to Collinwood. In the foyer, she is shocked to hear Vicki and Elizabeth talking in the drawing room. Elizabeth asks, "He said Barnabas is dead?". Vicki replies, "Yes, that's what David said. He insists that Barnabas is going to come here and kill him. I couldn't convince him it was just a dream". They puzzle over why David should be so afraid of Barnabas again. Julia walks into the drawing room and asks, "Did I hear you talking about David?" Elizabeth replies, "A nightmare scared him". Julia asks, "Is he all right?". Elizabeth replies, "Yes, but who can tell what's going to happen next?". Julia says, "I stayed up late last night thinking about David's strange behavior. I was wondering if it might not help if I talked to him alone. I've had some experience with child psychology.". Elizabeth remarks, "You seem a woman of many talents, Miss Hoffman". Julia continues, "The chances are that what's troubling David is very simple. If we talk, I might be able to help him". Elizabeth says, "I'll go up and talk to him"

After Elizabeth leaves, Julia asks Vicki, "Vicki, while we're waiting, could you tell me about David's dream? Give me as many details as you can"

Elizabeth goes into David's room and tells him, "Miss Hoffman is down in the drawing room. She wants to talk to you". David asks, "About what?". Elizabeth replies, "She thinks she can help with what's troubling you". David remarks, "I don't think so". Elizabeth replies, "You don't know until you've tried. Try, for me". David says, "OK". Elizabeth notices that David has some papers and asks, "Were you drawing something when I came in?" David replies, "Yes". Elizabeth asks, "Can I see it?". David declines, saying, "It's not very good", but Elizabeth insists, saying "You draw very well. Can I see it?". He reluctantly shows it to her. It is a picture of a coffin, with a headstone next to it reading, "BARNABAS COLLINS"

David comes down into the drawing room. Julia is in there alone now. David says, "Miss Hoffman, my aunt says you wanted to see me". Julia closes the doors. She sits David down on the couch and says, "Now David, I understand you had a dream last night. Could you tell me about it?" David replies, "No". Julia asks, "Why not?". David replies, "You probably won't believe me either". Julia tells him, "Relax. We've got to find out who's frightening you and why. The person in your dream is cousin Barnabas, isn't it?". David replies, "Yes". Julia asks, "You saw him come out of a coffin?" David replies, "Yes". Julia asks, "Where is the room the coffin was in?". David replies, "I don't know. It seems like a room I've seen before, but I don't know where". Julia asks, "Why do you think Barnabas was in the coffin?". David replies, "I don't know". Julia asks, "Didn't Sarah tell you?". David replies, "No, she just brought me there". Julia tells David, "Relax. Are you comfortable?". David replies, "Yes". Julia tells him, "I'm going to show you something that will make you even more comfortable". She takes her medallion out and says, "Look at it and listen to my voice". She dangles it in front of him and starts to hypnotize him. Suddenly, David gives a start and shouts, "You're the one! You're the lady in the dream!". He runs out of the drawing room and screams, "Vicki! Vicki! Where are you?"

The warmth and radiance of the sun that shines down on the great house of Collinwood cannot remove the ominous shadow that clouds our lives. We remain concerned for young David Collins, who has not recovered from the effects of a terrifying dream.

David shouts, "Vicki, help!". Vicki and Elizabeth come running into the foyer from the door under the stairs. Vicki asks, "What's the matter?". David shouts, "I don't want to talk to her!". Elizabeth looks at Julia and says, "I hope you can explain this!". Julia replies, "I'm as mystified as you are. He just caught sight of this piece of jewelry and became frightened". She holds the medallion up. David, seeing it, shouts, "No! I don't want to look at it, take it away!" and runs off. Julia explain, "I was trying to get him to feel more relaxed, when he suddenly caught sight of my medallion, got afraid and ran off". Elizabeth, puzzled, wonders, "Why should he be afraid of a piece of jewelry?". Vicki tells her, "In his mind, it's not just a piece of jewelry. In his dream, he saw a woman holding a medallion much like this one". Julia says, "It couldn't have been like this one. He's never seen it before". Vicki recalls, "I think I did see it before. You showed it at Maggie's house, Strange. It seems so much like the one David described in his dream". Julia remarks, "It must be a coincidence". Vicki leaves to see how David is. Julia apologizes to Elizabeth for what just happened. Elizabeth says, "You did your best, Miss Hoffman, but I'm starting to fear that no one's best will be good enough to help David..."

Vicki goes into David's room and finds him gazing into his crystal ball. She asks, "What are you doing?". David replies, "Looking for Sarah". Vicki tells him, "You realize the medallion you just saw couldn't have been the one in your dream. It's just a coincidence". David insists, "It IS, and she's the woman in my dream! I don't want her to come near me anymore! There's something spooky about her!". Suddenly, he exclaims, "Wait! I know where I can find Sarah!". Vicki tells him, "No, you are not allowed to leave this house". David promises, "If you let
me, I'll tell you what Sarah and I talk about". Vicki seems intrigued, and David manages to convince Vicki to let him go if he doesn't go far from the house and is back in an hour.

Burke Devlin comes to Collinwood. In the drawing room, Vicki tells him about David's dream. Burke notes, "That's the second dream he's had about Barnabas". Vicki, sounding somewhat upset, asks, "Are you starting to suspect him again? He wasn't the only one in this dream". She tells him about what happened when Julia tried to talk to David. Burke asks, "How did Miss Hoffman come to be alone with David?". Vicki explains what happened. Burke remarks, "Strange, she says she's a historian, but she seems to be spending most of her time doing other things. For example, why is she spending so much time at the old house?". Vicki says, "I think she's doing historical research at the library there". Burke remarks, "I would think she'd find the library here more useful". He jokingly suggests, "Perhaps there another reason she spends so much time there. Perhaps she has a mad crush on Barnabas. I've seen stranger pairings. Where's David?". Vicki replies, "Out". Burke is shocked that Vicki would let him out. He tells Vicki he's going out to look for him.

In a clearing in the woods, David shouts, "Sarah! Where are you, Sarah? I've got to talk to you!". The sound of a flute playing London Bridge fills the air. David exclaims, "Sarah, I know you're here! Please come out and talk to me! Come on!". Sarah appears and asks, "Come on where?". David turns and sees Sarah there. Sarah says, "I knew you'd be here". David asks, "How?". Sarah replies, "You were looking in your crystal ball and saw me here, didn't you?". David asks, "How'd you know?". Sarah, evasive as usual, replies, "I know lots of things". David tells her, "There's something I want to ask you about. Maybe you could explain it to me". Sarah promises, "I'll try". David asks, "You said you got very sick once.". Sarah replies, "That's true"...

Burke, nearby, hears David and Sarah talking and shouts, "David!".

Hearing this, Sarah exclaims, "I can't talk anymore! I've got to go!". David tells her, "No, I've got more questions for you!", then turns and shouts, "Burke! Over here!". Burke comes. David turns, but Sarah is gone...

David complains to Burke that he made Sarah leave. Burke asks David about his dream, but David replies, "You wouldn't understand. Only Sarah would". Burke asks, "But how would she? She was in YOUR dream, but it wasn't HER dream". David replies, "Sarah's a ghost!"

Burke comes out of the bedroom hallway and comes down the stairs, and goes into the drawing room. Elizabeth and Vicki are in there. He tells them, "He's still upset with me for making Sarah go away". Vicki asks, "Did he tells you his dream?". Burke replies, "No, he said that Sarah is the only one who would understand. He says some things that are beyond belief. For one, he says Sarah is a ghost!". Elizabeth, alarmed, suggests that it may be time to take David to a doctor. Burke says, "It's probably just an overactive imagination", but Vicki says, "No, I think it's more than that. I'm inclined to agree with David. Maybe Sarah IS a ghost" Elizabeth exclaims, "You can't be serious!". Vicki explains, "All the evidence points to it. Her strange appearances and disappearances, her knowing things she can't possibly know, the 130 year old doll she gave to Maggie...". Burke says, "Come on, Vicki!". Vicki replies, "OK, Burke, I'll give you a challenge. You like challenges, don't you? You're good at doing investigations. Find out about Sarah, who she is, where she lives, and produce her in the flesh before me. Then I'll believe she isn't a ghost. But I know you won't find her. David's right. The little girl IS a ghost".

David is sleeping restlessly in bed again, tossing and turning under his blanket. Sarah appears and calls out, "David, David! Wake up, it's me, Sarah!". David awakens and finds Sarah in the room. Sarah says, "You said you had more questions for me". David replies, "Yes. In my dream, you took me to a room with a coffin in it. I had the feeling I'd been in that room before". Sarah replies, "You were". David continues, "But I can't remember where it is". Sarah says, "That's good. I don't want you going there. It's dangerous". Suddenly, David says, "I know! That room reminds me of the cellar of the old house!". Sarah warns, "Don't go near the old house. It's not safe there". David asks, "One more question. Everyone thinks Willie is the person who kidnapped Maggie Evans. Is he?". Sarah replies emphatically, "Oh, no! He was just trying to warn her. I've got to go now". David begs, "No, wait! Don't go! I have more questions to ask you!", but Sarah says, "Just remember, Don't go near the old house. Don't go near the old house!" and fades away...

On this night near Collinwood, a man lies dying... a man who knows a terrifying secret. If he dies, he will carry that secret to his grave. But, if he lives, there is one he can expose. One whose very existence depends on his death.

At the hospital Dr. Woodard is watching over Willie, who is lying in a hospital bed covered by an oxygen tent.

At the old house, Barnabas is pacing around nervously. Julia comes in through the front door. Barnabas asks, "Well?". Julia replies, "There's nothing to worry about". Barnabas asks, "He's dead?" Julia replies, "No, but he's still in a coma and it's unlikely he'll come out of it". Barnabas exclaims, "That's unacceptable! I can't take the chance. Willie must die! Tonight!".

Julia asks, "What do you plan to do?". Barnabas replies, "Kill him myself if necessary". Julia warns, "There's a dozen reasons you can't do that! He's surrounded by people, for one.". Barnabas confidently says, "I'll find a way to be alone with him". Julia tells him, "He won't last much longer". Barnabas replies, "I'll make certain of that". Julia warns, "There is no way. He's guarded day and night". Barnabas prepares to leave. Julia asks, "Where are you going?". Barnabas replies, "To the hospital". Julia tells him, "You can't leave now, you're going to have a visitor". Barnabas asks, "Who?". Julia replies, "The sheriff. He came during the day. I told him you'd be back this evening". Barnabas asks, "Why? He's already questioned me". Julia explains, "He wants to search Willie's room". Barnabas starts to says, "They won't find anything in Willie's room", but suddenly seems to get and idea and says, "They WILL find something in Willie's room! Something very incriminating!".

Sheriff Paterson (played today by Vince O'Brien) is with Dr. Woodard in Willie's hospital room. The sheriff asks about Willie's chances. Woodard says, "If he lives, it'll be a miracle! All we can do now is wait". The sheriff remarks, "I know it sounds ridiculous, but I don't believe that boy kidnapped Maggie.". Woodard asks, "Why do you say that?". The sheriff replies, "I don't know.". Woodard points out, "He IS the one who walked into the trap you set". The sheriff continues, "No logical reason. Just some sixth sense. I just don't believe he's guilty". Woodard asks, "Then who is?". The sheriff replies, "I have the feeling he'll be able to tell us that when he can talk".

At the old house in Willie's bedroom, Barnabas is holding a ring. Julia asks, "So that belonged to Maggie?". Barnabas replies, "Yes, and they'll find it here. I must find a place to hide it, but a place they'll find it". He decides to hide it in a candlestick under the candle. Julia asks, "Are you sure they'll find it there?". Barnabas replies, "I'll make sure they do. I want you to go to
the hospital. Act as a consultant helping Dr. Woodard. Make sure Willie doesn't recover. If he starts to recover, do something about it.". Julia exclaims, "What?! Are you asking me to kill him?". Barnabas replies, "Yes. Your future is at stake here too". Julia says, "I won't take a human life! Willie will die naturally soon anyway!". Barnabas tells her, "If he doesn't, you know what to do. Do it!"

Dr. Woodard and he sheriff are still in Willie's hospital room. Sam comes in and asks, "How is he?". Woodard replies, "About the same". Sam asks, "Will he ever pull out of it?". Woodard replies, "At this point, your guess is as good as mine". Sam remarks to the sheriff, "You know, George, I've been thinking about this and I just can't buy it. I don't think he kidnapped Maggie". Woodard tells him, "The sheriff was just saying the same thing". The sheriff agrees, "There are just too many things that don't figure. If he had kidnapped her, where did he hide her? He couldn't have kept her at the old house with Barnabas Collins there". Woodard remarks, "I still think little Sarah has something to do with all this, but I don't know what". The sheriff says, "Well, I might know some answers soon. I'm going to the old house to search Willie's room". Sam asks, "Can I go too? I'd like to talk to Barnabas Collins"

Barnabas puts the ring in the candlestick. There's a knock at the front door. He goes to answer. It's the sheriff and Sam. Barnabas remarks, "Sheriff, I've been expecting you". The sheriff asks to be allowed to search Willie's room. Barnabas tells him, "I'll show you to it. This way". He leads them to the room. The sheriff looks at how small the room is and remarks, "This shouldn't take long. There isn't much to search. I'd like to ask you a few questions. Did Willie go out much at night?". Barnabas replies, "Yes". The sheriff asks, "Do you know where?". Barnabas replies, "I never inquired into his personal life". The sheriff tells Barnabas, "We can't figure out where he kept Maggie". Barnabas replies, "I'd prefer to think he was innocent". The sheriff starts to search. He searched Willie's clothing, his shaving kit, the desk, and under the mattress, finding nothing. Barnabas remarks that Willie also has some luggage in another room and asks the sheriff if he'd like to search it. The sheriff says yes, and Barnabas says, "The key's in here". He goes over to the desk and opens a drawer to get a key. As he is doing so, he "accidentally" knocks over the candlestick and says, "Oh, how careless of me!", then exclaims, Look! There's a ring in here! I've never seen it before". The sheriff takes the ring and shows it to Sam, asking, "Sam, have you ever seen this ring before?" Sam replies, "It's Maggie's. She was wearing it the night she disappeared". The sheriff says, "This is the evidence we've been looking for", then announces, "Willie Loomis has got to be the guilty man".

Julia goes into Willie's hospital room and asks Dr. Woodard. "How is he?". Woodard replies, "About the same". Julia tells him, "I stopped by to see if there's anything I could do". Woodard replies, "No, there's nothing anyone can do now except wait". Julia remarks, "I feel so guilty about not telling you about my suspicions earlier, but I wanted to wait until I absolutely sure...You look tired. Would you like me to relieve you for awhile?". Woodard replies, "No, that won't be necessary". Suddenly, Willie starts to groan. Julia says, "He's starting to feel the pain". Woodard exclaims, "He's coming out of it! I've got to tell the sheriff about this!" and runs out of the room.

Julia looks down on Willie and thinks of Barnabas' words, "You know what to do. Do it!"

In the living room of the old house, Barnabas exclaims, "I can hardly believe it!". The sheriff says, "I had some doubts, but Willie must be guilty". Barnabas apologizes to Sam, saying he feels responsible for all this. Sam replies, "Don't blame yourself. You had no way of knowing...". There's a knock on the door. It's a deputy, for the sheriff, "Sheriff! They want you down at the hospital right away! He's coming out of the coma!". The sheriff asks, "Will he be able to talk?". The deputy replies, "They think so". The sheriff announces, "Well, then before the night is over, we'll know everything!!!"

Note: This episode starts with a cliff hanger of the last scene of the previous episode, but with Dana Elcar playing the sheriff instead of Vince O'Brien.

Tonight, a dangerous and terrifying secret may be disclosed. For a man presumed to be dying has suddenly rallied, and, when he speaks, he may expose one whose very existence has depended on his silence.

Barnabas asks, "Sheriff, may I come with you? I'd like to talk with poor Willie. I'm sure he can prove his innocence". They all leave. Barnabas is the last to go. He looks very worried.

At the hospital, Woodard exclaims, "Amazing! His heartbeat's almost back to normal! He must have the constitution of an ox! I definitely think he's going to live! I wish I hadn't given him that sedative. He'd be talking by now". Julia says, "You had to. He was in too much pain". Woodard remarks, "You know something, Julia. I'm starting to think the sheriff might be right. Where was he keeping her? Why did he do it?". Julia suggests, "Maybe he was insane". Woodard remarks, "Possible. I'd give a great deal to hear what he has to say when he comes out of it. I have to see another patient. Could you watch over Willie while I'm gone? If you have to go anywhere, ask the nurse to come in. It's important that Willie doesn't move and dislodge that IV needle from his arm". He leaves.

Julia looks down on Willie and thinks to herself, "If he talks, He'll tell them everything. Barnabas will be exposed and destroyed. I'll never be allowed to practice medicine again. Maybe he won't talk. No, he will, to save himself. It would be so easy to silence him permanently. No one would ever know. So easy...so easy...". She reaches for the IV and prepares to pull it out. Suddenly, Woodard comes back and asks, "What are you doing?". Julia pulls her hand back and lies, "He moved. I was just checking to make sure the needle was still securely in there". Woodard looks at Willie and remarks, "He's not as pale as he was. I think he'll live"

The sheriff and Barnabas arrive at the hospital. Barnabas asks to be allowed to be there while he questions Willie, but the sheriff flatly refuses, saying, "I want to be alone with him when I question him. I don't want anything to affect his answers".

The sheriff goes into Willie's hospital room and asks, "How is he?". Woodard replies, "He's much better.". The sheriff remarks, "The deputy told me he was coming out of the coma". Woodard explains, "He was, but I had to give him a sedative. He was in too much pain. It looks like a few more hours before he talks". The sheriff looks at Julia and asks, "What are you doing here, doctor?". Julia exclaims, "Doctor?!". The sheriff tells her, "Dave told me the truth about you". Woodard explains, "I had to. You can't keep something like that from the sheriff". The sheriff asks Julia, "What are you doing here?". Julia explains, "I came down to help". Woodard remarks, "And I couldn't ask for more experienced help". Julia asks the sheriff, "Dave told me you had doubts Willie was the kidnapper". The Sheriff replies, "Not anymore.". He holds up the ring and says, "I found this in Willie's room". He explains that it's Maggie's ring. Woodard asks, "Then he IS guilty?". The sheriff replies, "Yes, unless he can explain how this got into his room". Julia remarks, "This is going to shock Mr. Collins. He was so certain Willie was innocent". The sheriff replies, "He still is. He's outside. He wanted to talk to Willie. I told him nobody could talk to him before I did". Julia leaves to talk to Barnabas. The sheriff asks Woodard, "How much longer before he wakes?". Woodard replies, "About 3 or 4 hours". The clock on the wall reads 12:50.

Barnabas is outside pacing around nervously. Julia comes out . Barnabas, asks, "What's going on?". Julia answers, "Willie's under sedation. What are you doing here?". Barnabas replies, "I want to make sure you silence Willie". Julia asks, "How?". Barnabas replies, "Kill him if necessary". Julia exclaims, "I can't!", but Barnabas orders, "You must!" Julia says, "I can't! The sheriff's in there!". Barnabas says, "You should've done it before, you bumbling fool! I've got to do something! Now!". Julia says, "There's nothing you or I can do except wait and hope Willie takes a turn for the worse". The clock on the wall reads 1:00.

Dr. Woodard and Sheriff Patterson continue to wait inside Willie's hospital room. The clock now reads 4:00.

Willie stirs and starts to groan. Woodard exclaims, "He's coming out of it!". Willie opens his eyes. Woodard asks, "Willie, how are you?". Willie moans, "It hurts...Everything hurts". Woodard tells him, "I'm going to give you something to ease the pain soon. First, the sheriff would like to ask you a few questions". Willie asks Woodard, "Who are you?". Woodard replies, "Don't you recognize me? I'm your doctor, Dr. Woodard. You're in the hospital". The sheriff says to Willie, "I have to ask you a few questions. Why were you trying to break into Maggie Evans' room? Why, Willie?". Willie, does not answer, asking instead, "Is it dark? Is it dark out?". Woodard tells him, "Yes it is, it's night". Willie says, "I'm afraid of the dark! Don't let it be dark! Don't hurt me! Please don't hurt me!". The sheriff says, "Relax. No one's going to hurt you. I just want to show you something". He shows him the ring and asks him, "Who does it belong to?". Willie replies, "Mine! It's my ring!". The sheriff asks, "You stole it, didn't you? You stole it from Maggie Evans". Willie says, "Maggie Evans...I remember now! I afraid, and I know why!".

The clock in the hallway reads 5:30. Julia tells Barnabas, "Only half an hour and the sun will rise. You'd better go back to Collinwood". Barnabas asks, "How can I?!". Julia assures him, "If Willie had told them anything, we'd know by now. Wait! I think they're coming out!". Dr. Woodard and Sheriff Patterson come out of Willie's room. Barnabas nervously asks, "Well?". The Sheriff replies, "Well, we know something we didn't know before". Barnabas asks, "What?". The sheriff replies, "Willie Loomis is hopelessly insane." Woodard chimes in, "His mind snapped. You may have been right, Julia. He was probably insane all along, but managed to hide it. He just babbled on about being afraid of the dark". The Sheriff adds, "And about being afraid of a voice from the grave. Nothing else he said made any more sense". Julia asks, "So the case is closed?". The Sheriff replies, "For the time being". Julia asks, "What happens to him now?". Woodard replies, "When he recovers from his injuries, he'll be taken to a institution for the criminally insane". Barnabas asks, "Can we see him?". The Sheriff replies, "Yes, but prepare yourself. He's a pitiful sight...".

Barnabas and Julia go into Willie's room. Willie is conscious. Barnabas asks, "Willie?". Willie replies, "Who are you?". Barnabas asks, "Don't you recognize me?". Willie replies, "No". Barnabas asks, "Are you sure you don't recognize me?". Willie answers, "No. Who are you? Are you a doctor?". Barnabas, looking very relieved, replies, "That's right. I am a doctor".

It is afternoon at Collinwood, and the bright afternoon sunshine has dispelled the fears of the night. But fear lingers in the mind of a child. And, before this day is over, fear will mount to terror.

It is afternoon. David is in the foyer at Collinwood staring at the portrait of Barnabas. The portrait's eyes flash strangely. Elizabeth comes into the foyer and asks, "David, why do you keep staring at that portrait? David exclaims, "Don't you see it?!". Elizabeth asks, "See what?". David exclaims "The eyes! They keep staring at me!" Elizabeth scoffs, "It's just your imagination". David protests, "It's NOT my imagination! He's watching me all the time!". Elizabeth tells him, "You mustn't be afraid of a portrait. It's only paint on canvas". but David replies, "It's not the portrait I'm afraid of. It's cousin Barnabas!". Elizabeth says, "That's just because you had a bad dream about him". David replies, "It's not because of the dream". Elizabeth asks, "Then what is it?". David replies, "It's because he wants me to die!". Elizabeth says, "David, how can you say that?". David replies, "It's true, he wants me to die! Cousin Barnabas hates me! I can tell by the way he looks at me! He's hiding something, and he's afraid I'll find out what it is!". Elizabeth asks, "What?". David answers, "I don't know. Something scary." He warns, "Don't go near the old house!". Elizabeth remarks, "You never used to be afraid of the old house before". David answers, "I am after last night". Elizabeth asks, "What happened last night". David replies, "Sarah came into my room and warned me not to go to the old house". Elizabeth asks, "How could Sarah have gotten into your room?". David says, "Sarah's a ghost!". Roger comes out of the drawing room holding a newspaper and exclaims, "I've heard about enough of this nonsense!". David insists, "It's true! Cousin Barnabas is hiding something scary in the basement of the old house!". Roger, exasperated, shouts, "Go to your room!"

Roger asks Elizabeth to go into the drawing room. They go inside, Roger closing the doors behind them. Inside, he tells Elizabeth, "I fear David is losing his grip on reality...

Outside, David sneaks back down, listens at the drawing room door to make sure his father and aunt are in there, hears that they are, goes to the front door, gets his coat, and sneaks out...

David goes to the old house. Trying the front door but finding it locked, he goes to the window, opens it, and climbs in. He starts to look around. He tries the cellar door but finds it locked. Suddenly, an arm grabs him. He turns and finds it's Julia. She asks, "David, what are you doing here?". David haughtily replies, "I have the right to be here! This house belongs to my Aunt Elizabeth!". Julia protests, "But you don't have her permission to be here". David asks, "What are YOU doing here?". Julia replies, "Doing some research in the Mr. Collins' library". Julia asks, "Where is he?". Julia replies, "Out. He'll be back in the evening". David points to the cellar door and asks, "Why is this door locked?". Julia lies, "I wouldn't know". David remarks, "It never used to be locked before. Why is it locked now?". Julia replies, "I don't know. I'd better be getting you back to Collinwood. It's getting dark". David asks again, "What's he got down there?". Julia gets very anxious and says, "I've got to get you back home!". She grabs his arm and drags him away.

At Collinwood, Elizabeth comes downstairs and tells Roger, in an alarmed voice, "Roger, David's not in his room!". Roger growls, "If he's gone to the old house, I'm going to have to punish him!" David and Julia come in through the front doors. Roger asks David, "Why did you disobey me?". David replies, "I HAD to go out!". Roger asks Julia, "Miss Hoffman, where did you find him?". Julia replies, "The old house". Roger says, "I knew it! This time, I'm going to have to spank you! Go up to your room and wait for me!". David goes up to his room.

Julia asks Roger, "May I have a word with you? Mr. Collins has a lot of valuable things. He'd appreciate it if you could keep David out of the old house.". Roger asks, "What was he doing when you found him?". Julia replies, "Just prowling around. The old house seems to have a strange attraction for him". Roger agrees, "Yes. He's been having some strange fantasies. He's thinks that Barnabas wants him to die. He's also convinced that Barnabas is hiding some deep dark secret at the old house". Julia warns him, "You've got to keep him away from the old house. It's not good for his fantasies. I wouldn't mention this to Barnabas. He's a sensitive man, and David's strange fantasies about him might upset him". Roger moans, "I don't know what to do about David, I really don't".

In his room, David wonders, "Why does Barnabas keep the basement locked up? He has something hidden down there! I know it!".

Later, at the old house, Julia gives Barnabas his injection and asks, "How are you feeling tonight?". Barnabas replies, "Better". Julia remarks, "You're making splendid progress. I couldn't be more pleased". Barnabas asks, "Then why are you acting so strangely tonight? You seem tense". Julia replies, "I'm not", but Barnabas says, "Don't tell me that. I know your moods by now. What is it?". Julia lies, "Nothing of any importance. Willie's been shipped to an institute for the criminally insane.". Barnabas asks, "Is that all?". Julia replies, "Yes, I was quite fond of Willie. Anyway, everyone thinks Willie is guilty, and Maggie's memory will never return. You're in the clear now", but Barnabas says, "One thing remains. David". Julia says, "David's no threat to you". Barnabas asks, "You mean you've hypnotized him and erased his memories?". Julia starts to say, "No, I tried...". Barnabas asks, "Tried?". Julia explains what happened. Barnabas asks, "But why would you medallion frighten him?". Julia explains, "It seems that he had a dream where he saw one like it. Don't worry. I'll try again. You don't have to worry about David. Even if he says anything, no one will believe him. He's highly imaginative". Barnabas says, "You've just given me and idea! Highly imaginative? No one would believe anything he says?". Julia asks, "What do you plan to do?". Barnabas refuses to explain, saying only, "You'll see, Doctor, you'll see!"

David is in his room looking at his drawing of the coffin and tombstone reading "BARNABAS COLLINS". Roger comes in. David asks, "Are you going to spank me?". Roger replies, "No, I just want to talk to you. I just want to understand you, David, that's all I want. Why do you continue to disobey me, time after time?". David explains, "I had to! I had to prove that I wasn't lying!". Roger says, "I don't disbelieve you, David. You probably had a vivid dream and thought it was real". David insists, "It wasn't a dream! You won't believe anything bad about Barnabas! He's hiding something scary down in the basement of the old house!". Roger asks, "Did you find anything when you were there?". David replies, "The door was locked". Roger asks, "What's so scary about a locked door?". David replies, "It was never locked before. There's something scary down there!". Roger asks David to promise not to go to the Old house again. David promises, saying, "I'm really afraid to go to the old house now. I only went today because I wanted to prove I wasn't lying". Roger says goodnight and leaves.

David prepares to go to sleep. Suddenly, the window blows open. David goes to shut it but is startled to find a bat hovering outside. The bat flies in and menaces David. David runs around the room trying to get away from it, but the bat keeps chasing him. Finally, David falls to the ground, his arms protecting his head, and screams, "HELP! HELP! HELP!"
