The great house of Collinwood stands in the 20th century as it did in the 18th. A silent witness to the tragedies of the Collins family then and now. For time has been suspended here. The clocks hands have stopped as a result of a sťance. And the girl who is missing, whose journey to the year 1795 began in this room, at this table, that girl now is about to die, convicted of witchcraft and sentenced to hang. And now two moments in time are parallel, during one tick of a clock in 1968 months have passed in 1975. Now only seconds remain.

In 1968, the clock in the foyer of Collinwood starts to strike midnight. Inside the drawing room, everyone is still looking shocked at Phyllis Wick. Julia exclaims, "I don't understand!" Roger exclaims, "Vicki! Vicki! She's not here!" He rushes out to the foyer to see if Vicki's there. While everyone else is looking for Vicki, Barnabas goes to Phyllis Wicks and, in a very menacing voice, asks, "What are YOU doing here?" Suddenly, Phyllis Wick puts her hands to her throat and says, "AH! AH!", as if there were something uncomfortably tight around it.

In 1796, the noose has just been put around Vicki's neck. She is then hanged.

In 1968, Phyllis Wick screams horribly and collapses onto the floor.

In 1796, the body is taken down from the gallows. The executioner takes off the mask. The jailer exclaims, "It's not her! That's not the prisoner! That's not the woman we hanged!". It is Phyllis Wick...

In 1968, everyone has rushed over to Phyllis Wick, only to find, to their surprise, that it's no longer Phyllis Wick, but Vicki. Carolyn exclaims, "It's Vicki!" Someone exclaims, "That's impossible! What happened, Miss Winters?" Someone else says, "I don't understand..." Elizabeth tells Roger, "Roger, call a doctor", but Julia announces, "No. That's not necessary. I'm a doctor". Elizabeth, looking very surprised, exclaims, "Miss Hoffman!" Julia tells her, "I owe you an explanation, I know. And you shall have it. Now, do you have some smelling salts?" Carolyn says, "I'll get them" and leaves to do so. Vicki revives and sees Barnabas. Barnabas says, "Vicki, it's Barnabas". Vicki exclaims, "Barnabas! Millicent was right! She said you weren't dead! I'm so glad! Why didn't you want anyone to know you were alive? I don't understand..." Roger remarks, "Millicent? Millicent Collins lived almost 200 years ago!". Vicki sees Elizabeth standing there and says, "Mrs. Collins". Elizabeth, puzzled, asks, "Mrs. Collins?" Vicki suddenly realizes where she is and exclaims, "Elizabeth! Julia! Roger! I'm back!!!!" Julia says, "I'll take her upstairs", and takes Vicki by the arm, but Vicki cries out in pain, "My arm!" Julia sees some marks on Vicki's neck and exclaims, "Vicki! These marks look like rope burns!" "Vicki, where have you been?" Vicki replies, "I don't know". Someone says, "What are you doing in that dress? There are so many questions to ask!" As Roger is taking Vicki out the door, Carolyn returns with the smelling salts. Carolyn says, "Vicki!". Vicki says, "Millicent!" Puzzled, Roger and Carolyn take Vicki upstairs. Barnabas asks Julia, "Anything I can do?" Julia replies, "I'll send for you. As soon as I think it wise" and leaves. Elizabeth asks Barnabas, "Barnabas, you had a premonition about this sťance, didn't you? You didn't want us to have this sťance". Barnabas replies, "No". Elizabeth asks, "What happened to Miss Wick?" Barnabas replies, "She's back in her own time now". Elizabeth remarks, "The family history will tell if there was a Phyllis Wick". She goes to the table to get the family history and is surprised to find that it's gone. She asks, "Where is it? It was here". Elizabeth accuses Barnabas of knowing more about what happened than he's admitting. They are interrupted by Julia, who comes into the room and says, "I gave her a sedative, but she's asking for you". Barnabas says, "Thank you", but Julia says, "No, Barnabas. She's asking for Mrs. Stoddard". Elizabeth leaves. Barnabas asks Julia, "You're not going to let me see her, are you?" Julia asks, "You really believe she went into the past, don't you? What if she's upstairs telling Mrs. Stoddard everything about you right now? You're always in such control of everything. It's so interesting to see you when you're not!" and walks away.

Elizabeth and Julia are upstairs with Vicki, who's in her own bed. Julia asks, "Is she asleep, Mrs. Stoddard?" Elizabeth replies, "She seems to be". Julia says, "Good. I'd like to explain." Elizabeth tells her, "That can wait for later", but Julia says, "No, I'd like to explain now. I came here because I needed a change. My work at the hospital was getting to be too much. I was in danger of having a nervous breakdown if I didn't get some rest. Dr. Woodard knew about my interest in this area and your family, and arranged for me to come here as a historian. I AM writing a book. I hope you allow me to stay to finish it..." Vicki regains consciousness and moans, "UNHHHHH...It hurts!" Elizabeth asks, "What's wrong?" Julia replies, "A bullet wound, I would guess". Elizabeth exclaims, "That's impossible!" Julia remarks, "Look at this bandage. It's wound around her arm as if they had no tape." Elizabeth asks, "But what about the bullet wound?" Julia replies, "It's about two weeks old, I'd say". Elizabeth exclaims, "But I see her every day!" Vicki starts to says, "Peter! You've got to save him!" Elizabeth asks, "What's wrong, Vicki?" Vicki replies, "The gallows! I remember hearing Peter's voice, then the man saying, 'May God have mercy on your unrepentant soul', the I remember dropping!" Elizabeth assures her, "You're all right now. You're back at Collinwood". Vicki asks, "But where is Peter?" Julia asks, "Vicki, who is Peter?" Vicki replies, "I DO know someone named Peter. But where? How? Where was I? Peter, help me! Help me!" Meanwhile, a bat flutters outside the window...

The clock by Vicki's bed reads 2:00. Vicki is sleeping peacefully. Elizabeth is watching over her, while Julia sits in an armchair. Elizabeth tells Julia, "She's been sleeping for some time now. You must get some rest". Julia replies, "No". Elizabeth insists, "At least go get a cup of tea". Julia replies, "No, you go". Elizabeth tells her, "Barnabas and Roger will want to know what happened. I don't know what to say to them". Julia leaves with her. Barnabas materializes in the room and calls, "Vicki? Vicki! Wake up, my dear!" Vicki awakens and says, "Barnabas!" Barnabas tells her, "I know I shouldn't have come to your room, but I was worried about you." Vicki asks, "Why did Josette tell me you were dead? She came to see me in jail. Why was I in jail?" Barnabas tells her, "You're back at Collinwood now". Vicki says, "I'm so confused, Barnabas". Barnabas asks, "About what?" Vicki replies, "About you". Barnabas asks, "Why?" Vicki replies, "Because when Josette came to see me in jail, she blamed me for killing you. She said I put a curse on you. You don't think I put a curse on you, do you?" Barnabas replies, "No. I am under no curse". Vicki remarks, "Poor Josette. I tried to prevent her death. I told the countess she would lose a black onyx ring like yours. But they told me you were dead. I don't remember anything else. Only....that you weren't dead. But Millicent said it was supposed to be secret". Barnabas asks, "Do you know why it was supposed to be a secret?" Vicki starts to say, "No...", then suddenly exclaims, "I WAS there!" Julia comes back. She is furious to find Barnabas there and orders him out, "Get out of this room, Barnabas! And do not come back! She will not be alone. All night!" Barnabas leaves. Vicki says, "I frightened him..." Julia replies, "Yes". Vicki says, "I didn't mean to...Julia! I WAS there! I WAS! In another time! With people I'll never see again! Julia! What am I going to do, what?"

Barnabas goes downstairs. He finds Carolyn in the drawing room alone. He tells her, "You must divert the eminent Dr. Hoffman tomorrow evening. I don't care how. I must be with her alone". Carolyn asks, "Vicki? But you were with her alone tonight". Barnabas replies, "Yes, but not long enough". Carolyn asks, "What are you going to do?" Barnabas replies, "She must speak me alone, or she must never speak again!"

Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins
Grayson Hall as Julia Hoffman
Addison Powell as Jeremiah's Voice
Timothy Gordon as Ghost Figure
Alexandra Moltke as Victoria Winters

The sťance which kept Collinwood frozen in time is over, but the effects are not, and will perhaps never be. For one has returned from the shadows of another century with dim, haunting memories which terrify one man who lived then as well as now.

Julia hypnotizes Vicki to try to find out what she knows, but manages to get only fragmentary babbling from her about wanting to save someone named Peter.

Vicki has a dream in which the ghost of Jeremiah tells her to beware of Barnabas. (But he does not tell her why.)

Barnabas tries to get Julia to tell him what Vicki knows, but she refuses to tell him. He tells her he recognized the woman who appeared in the sťance, that she was Sarah's governess, that she was tried and found guilty of witchcraft and was to be hung the day he was chained in his coffin. He tells her he realizes that Vicki must have taken her place in the past and is afraid she might have discovered the truth about him. Julia tells Barnabas that Vicki has only fragmentary memories of what happened.

Julia goes to see Vicki. Vicki tells her about the dream. Julia tells her she went into town and looked into town records and found there WAS a Peter Bradford, that he was hanged in 1795 for the murder of a Noah Gifford. Vicki breaks down crying and repeats "I loved him..." over and over.

Julia tells Barnabas about Vicki saying she loved Peter Bradford. This appears to bother Barnabas. Julia tells Barnabas not to do anything to Vicki if she starts to remember too much because she can make her forget the same way she made Maggie forget.

Barnabas does not listen and visits Vicki. She starts to babble about Joshua, Naomi and Josette, whom she says came to America to marry Barnabas, not Jeremiah as the family history says. She tells him that the ghost of Jermiah came to her and told her to beware of HIM, but that she dismissed that as ridiculous. Feigning sympathy for her, he embraces her and bares his fangs...

At the great house of Collinwood Victoria Winters has returned to the present day from her strange and haunting adventure in the past. But the terrible events she lived through there are beginning to change not only her life, but the fates of those around her. But her own grief is so great she is able to think only of her lost love - a man she met and grew to know - a man who lived and died almost two hundred years ago.

Vicki is taken to the cemetery by Elizabeth. There, she finds Peter's grave. It states that he lived from January 13, 1770 - April 3, 1795. Vicki moans that it's April 3, 1968 and almost dusk and Peter's being hanged back in 1795 right now and there's nothing she can do about it. She remarks that he is innocent, that SHE killed Noah Gifford. She starts to remember that it was in this graveyard that she killed Gifford, that it was because he was strangling Daniel, but she cannot remember anything more. Suddenly, Vicki tells Elizabeth she has to go into town, that she doesn't know why, but that she knows she has to go there.

At Collinwood, Barnabas tells Carolyn that he bit Vicki and asks if she notices any difference in her. They are interrupted by Vicki and Elizabeth returning. Vicki is carrying a large, flat rectangular object wrapped in a light blue cloth. Elizabeth remarks that they were driving through town and Vicki suddenly had her stop at an antique shop on impulse, went in and bought a portrait. Vicki unwraps the portrait. Barnabas is stunned. It is a portrait of Angelique. He abruptly excuses himself and leaves.

Later, Tony Peterson arrives at Collinwood to take Carolyn to dinner, but Barnabas telepathically summons her from the Old House. Carolyn tells Peterson she has something she has to do quickly and tells him to wait in the foyer.

Carolyn goes to the old house. There, Barnabas tells Carolyn he knows why Vicki showed no response to his bite. She tells her it is because of the influence of Angelique the witch and tell her she must destroy the portrait for him. She tells him, "That's ridiculous. One doesn't buy witches in antique shops." Barnabas is irritated at this and tells her he'll do it himself. Needing comfort and nourishment, he then bites her. Unknown to them, Tony Peterson has followed Carolyn to the old house and is spying on them through the window...

At 2:00 in the morning, Barnabas sneaks into Collinwood. He cuts the picture from the frame, throws it into the fire and watches it burn. He hears a woman's laughter and turns. He is shocked to see that the picture is back in the frame, unharmed...

Louis Edmonds as Roger Collins
Grayson Hall as Julia Hoffman
Thayer David as Timothy Stokes
Alexandra Moltke as Victoria Winters
Lara Parker as Angelique

Victoria Winters has returned from a strange, frightening journey into the past. One by one she has begun to remember the terrible events she witnessed in the year 1795. There is another in the Collins family who knows those events only too well, for he too lived through them. Now he fears that Victoria Winters may have learned his awful secret. While this night is still young, Barnabas Collins will learn that no part of the past can ever die. Indeed his own past may soon begin to catch up with him.

Roger falls in love with the portrait of Angelique, which seems to have a strange effect on him. While looking at it, he puzzles Julia by calling her "Countess DuPres". When she asks why he called her this, he denies having done so.

Roger dismisses Vicki's claim that she traveled to the past as just a a dream. Reminded about the appearance of Phyllis Wick, he dismisses it as mass hallucination.

A Professor Elliot Stokes (Thayer David) comes to Collinwood and offers to buy the portrait of Angelique, saying that he had seen it in the antique store and planned to buy it, but found it had been sold when he came back. He remarks that he had an ancestor named Ben Stokes who used to work at Collinwood. He tells them that Ben Stokes had written his memoirs, but that they were unpublished and only one copy exist. Barnabas remarks that he thought most servants in those days couldn't read or write. Stokes replies that neither could Ben, until he was over 40 years old, but that Ben's history is a bit mysterious, that he was indentured to the Collins family until the year 1805, but that Joshua Collins freed him for some unknown reason in 1795, giving him $100, a substantial sum in those days, and a plot of land north of Collinsport where Ben lived happily, dying at the age of 75. Barnabas is relieve when Stokes tells him that Ben's memoirs had been in a fire and only fragments of it remain. Stokes remarks that he thinks the woman in the portrait is somehow related to Ben. Vicki suddenly remembers and exclaims that the woman in the portrait is named Angelique and Ben HATED her because she was a witch who had married the first Barnabas and tried to destroy the Collins family and nearly succeeded. Roger pooh-poohs what Vicki says, saying the family history never mentions a woman named Angelique. Failing to convince Vicki to sell him the picture, Stokes leaves. Barnabas leaves too.

Outside, Barnabas and Stokes talk. Stokes tells Barnabas he already knew the woman in the picture was named Angelique, but that he didn't know she was a witch. He dismisses Roger's objection by saying that the "official" family history doesn't tell everything. He tells Barnabas that he has some small psychic powers and senses that Vicki somehow knows the past almost as if she lived it. He tells Barnabas that Vicki might be able to help him solve a mystery he has been investigating : the Collinsport Strangling of 1795.

Barnabas decides that Vicki is starting to remember too much and becoming too much of a threat to him. He bites her again, planning to "guide her into a new life."

Later, Julia goes into check on Vicki and sees the bites on her neck. She confronts Barnabas and threatens to expose him if he doesn't stop.

Peter Murphy as Gaoler 

Victoria Winters has returned from a strange, frightening journey into the past. One by one she has come to remember the terrible events she witnessed in the year 1795. She has remembered now that the tragedies of the past were caused by witchcraft, and that the witch was Angelique Collins. Soon this knowledge will place Victoria in grave danger, for there is one at the Old House on the Collins Estate who fears that she knows too much, that unless she is stopped, she will reveal his secret unto the world.

Barnabas sends Vicki a telepathic message telling her he's going to take her away from Collinwood forever tonight.

Joe Haskell comes to Collinwood. He tells Vicki he found something belonging to her, the charm bracelet Maggie had given her for her birthday. He tells her she'll never guess where he found it. But before he can tell her, she tells him, "I know. The old courthouse." He tells her she is right, that he was helping salvage the fixtures before it was demolished and found it there.

Vicki falls asleep in the drawing room and has a dream in which she visits Peter Bradford in his cell. She tells him she will help him by going to Nathan and getting him to change his testimony about seeing him shoot Noah. She finds Nathan, but he tells her he cannot help her because he is dead, and so is she, he by strangulation and she by hanging. Vicki returns to Peter's cell but finds it empty. She sees him being hanged outside.

Vicki wakes up calling, "Peter!" Barnabas is there. He tells her he has come to take her away, but she tells him she remembers the events leading up to her shooting Noah now, that she was hiding in a secret room in the Collins family crypt. She tells him that before they go, she wants to go and see if there really is a secret room in the Collin's family crypt and thus prove whether she really did travel into the past.

Vicki drives on the way to the cemetery with Barnabas. He tells her he is worried they might missed the boat he has booked passage on. He asks her how she could know about a secret room if it was secret. She tells him Ben had hidden her in there. Suddenly, Vicki sees a man who looks just like Peter Bradford, except he is dressed in modern clothes, standing right in the middle of the road. She screams, "Peter!", swerves to avoid hitting him, and hits a tree.

At the Great House of Collinwood, Victoria Winters has returned to the present day from her strange and haunting adventure in the past, but the terrible events she lived through there are beginning to change not only her life, but the lives of those around her. One man, especially, fears what she may have discovered in 1795, for his secret is that he lived then as well as now, so in effort to control her, he forces an elopement, thinking at last his secret is safe.

The phone rings at Collinwood. Julia answers. She is informed by a nurse at the Collinsport Hospital that Barnabas and Vicki have been in an auto accident and that Barnabas is in critical condition. She rushes out of Collinwood to go to the hospital.

At the hospital, a doctor orders a blood transfusion for Barnabas, saying he has little blood, in fact the lowest blood count he's ever encountered. He remarks that this must be because Barnabas must have lost a lot of blood in the accident, but then expects the clothing Barnabas had been wearing and is puzzled by the fact that his clothing showed no trace of serious bleeding.

The man who looks like Peter Bradford visits an unconscious Vicki, but the nurse finds him in there and kicks him out. He sneaks back in. Vicki regains consciousness, sees him and calls him, "Peter! Peter Bradford" He tells her his name isn't Peter, that he doesn't know who Peter Bradford is, that he's only there because he caused the accident. He tells her his name is "Jeff Clark". The nurse comes in again, sees Clark there and kicks him out again, saying, "Dr. Lang will be very upset!" Clark becomes upset at the mention of the name "Dr. Lange" and leaves.

Dr. Lang comes and examines Vicki. He finds the holes on her neck. While he is questioning her about them, a nurse rushes into the room and tells him someone is trying to take Barnabas out of the hospital.

Dr. Lang goes to Barnabas' room and finds Julia Hoffman in there on the telephone trying to make arrangements to take Barnabas away. He questions her and she tells him she is treating Barnabas for a rare blood disease and must have him moved for special care. He sees through her lies and tells her he is a student of rare blood disorders and knows Barnabas is a vampire and knows that she knows it. He refuses to release Barnabas from the hospital. Julia asks him to cover the windows so that no light can come in. This he agrees to do.

Barnabas awakens and finds Dr. Lang in the room with him. He asks him what time it is. Dr. Lang replies, "Almost four o'clock." Barnabas, thinking he means 4:00 in the morning and that the sun is about to come up soon, becomes frantic and asks to be allowed to leave. Dr. Lang advises him against it, saying he's injected him with a number of drugs, some of them new and experimental. But Barnabas refuses to listen and tries to leave, but Dr. Lang tells him, "It's four o'clock, yes, but in the afternoon!" and pulls open the curtains. The room fills with sunlight. Barnabas screams...

At the Great House of Collinwood, Victoria Winters has returned to her life from her strange and haunting adventure in the past, but the terrible events she lived through there are beginning to change not only her life, but the lives of others around her. For this night, one man, afraid of what she might have discovered in 1795, has taken her away with him, but the end of their journey was a hospital, and the unexpected attention of a strange doctor.

After getting over the initial shock, Barnabas finds, to his amazement, that the sunlight has absolutely no effect on him and even opens the window and goes out on the balcony to look at the sun. Dr. Lang tells him he knows he is a vampire, or rather, WAS a vampire. He tells him he as somehow managed to cure him - by accident, but assures him he has complete records of what he has done.

At Collinwood, Roger is staring at the portrait of Angelique. The phone (Collinsport 4099) rings, but Roger does not appear to notice. The phone rings about 10 times. Elizabeth, who's been in another part of the house, comes running to answer, but is too late. By the time she gets to the foyer, the phone has stopped ringing. She goes into the foyer and asks Roger why he did not answer the phone, but he appears to be in some sort of trance. He calls her Naomi and starts to yell at her the way a man might yell at his wife 100 years ago. Shocked, Elizabeth slaps him. He snaps out of it. She asks him why he didn't answer the phone and why he talked to her like that, but finds he doesn't remember any of it.

Roger and Elizabeth go to visit Barnabas at the hospital. While Elizabeth talks to Barnabas, Roger remains silent, a strange look on his face. Dr. Lang comes in. Barnabas introduces him to Elizabeth and Roger. Elizabeth greets him, but Roger just gives him a cold handshake and doesn't say a word. While Dr. Lange is talking to Elizabeth and Barnabas, Roger remains silent and steals Lange's "head-mirror", which the doctor has put on a table. Lang leaves. Elizabeth admonishes Roger for being so rude as not to say a word to Dr. Lange. But Roger, instead of answering Elizabeth, turns to Barnabas, says, "It's not this easy!" and leaves, leaving Barnabas and Elizabeth puzzled.

Roger returns to Collinwood and goes to the portrait. The portrait telepathically tells him to twist the headband tight. Roger does so.

At the hospital, Barnabas is now alone in the room with Dr. Lange, Elizabeth having left. He is telling Dr. Lang about Angelique when suddenly Lang grabs his head and complains of suddenly having an excruciating headache. He falls to his knees and screams, "I can't see!"

At Collinwood, the portrait instructs Roger to throw the headband into the fire, but Roger, sensing that something terrible will happen if he does, refuses to do so. Instead, he hurls it across the room. Angelique's control of him is apparently not yet complete.

At the hospital, Lange's headache and blindness suddenly disappear. Barnabas tells Lang that he recognizes what has just happened. He tells Lang he has become the target of Angelique's wrath. He begs him to stop treating him and let him revert into a vampire. Lang refuses. Barnabas warns him, "If you don't stop, Angelique will kill you!"

At the great house of Collinwood, Victoria Winters has returned from a strange, haunting adventure in the past. But the terrible events she lived through are beginning to change not only her life, but the fates of those around her. For there is a man who is afraid of what she discovered about him in 1795, but his plan to control what she knows has ended in failure. And now Victoria Winters finds herself almost unable to distinguish between what happened in the past and what is happening now.

Dr. Lang examines Vicki and finds that the wounds on her neck are gone. Vicki asks how this is possible. Lang tells her the wounds are gone because their cause is gone, but does not explain further.

Having been released from the hospital by Lange, Vicki is packing her things to leave. Jeff Clark comes in and talks to her about her thinking he is someone named Peter Bradford. He mentions that he is staying at the Collinsport Inn. Dr. Lang comes in and tells Vicki that Barnabas wants to see her before she goes. Vicki leaves to go see him. After she leaves, Lang orders Jeff to stay away from Vicki. Their conversation reveals that Jeff works for Lange. The nature of their work is not mentioned, but it is clear from the conversation that Jeff does not like it, but he has no choice but to do it for some reason. Lang tells him to leave Vicki alone because he might have plans for her. He orders Jeff to leave. Jeff leaves.

Vicki returns to her hospital room. Lang tells her Jeff had to leave for an urgent appointment Lang asks her some questions about herself, saying it's for the medical record. Vicki tells him she is a foundling without any family.

At Collinwood, Julia finds Carolyn acting strangely, as if she were no longer under the spell of a vampire. Carolyn takes off her scarf, saying she no longer feels like wearing it. Julia sees that the holes in her neck are gone.

When Vicki returns, she tells Carolyn about Jeff. Carolyn convinces Vicki that she must learn more about him as it may answer some of her questions about her experiences. Vicki calls the Collinsport Inn but finds that Jeff Clark is not registered there and never has been.

Vicki decides to check to see if there is a secret room in the Collins Family mausoleum. Julia goes with her. When they get there, they find that Jeff is in the crypt. Vicki asks him what he is doing there. He tells her that he was taking a walk when the storm started and he ran in there for shelter. Vicki tells him this is one of the last places she saw Peter. She asks him if he remembers being the secret room with her and giving her the gun. At first, he becomes angry that she keeps thinking he is Peter Bradford, but then apologizes and tells her this talk of guns and secret rooms bothers him, but says he does know why. Julia asks Vicki about the secret room, but Vicki tells her that all she can remember is that it is behind one of the panels, but that she doesn't remember which one or how to open it. While they are talking, Jeff paces around with his hand to his forehead as if he is trying to remember something. Suddenly, he walks over to the middle panel, pulls the ring in the lion's mouth and opens the secret panel.

Victoria Winters has returned to the Great House at Collinwood, back from her strange and frightening adventure in the past. Now she and all those around her are haunted by the terrible events she witnessed in the year 1795, events which may change the course of history and forever alter the destinies of all who live in Collinwood, and within it lies the key which may unlock the focus within for Victoria Winters.

Vicki asks Jeff how he knew about the ring, but he tells her he doesn't know, that it "just happened".

They go inside the secret room. There, Vicki suddenly remembers hiding in there with Daniel, up to the killing of Noah. Julia asks if she remembers seeing a coffin in there and is relieved when Vicki tells her that she remembers seeing no coffin in the room when she was hiding in there. Julia questions her further and finds that she knows nothing about the secret room, just that she had hidden there.

Barnabas awakens and screams for Lang. When Lang arrives, Barnabas tells him that he had a sudden urge for blood, but that it is gone now. Lang tells him that, in his present condition, there might be temporary relapses. Lang tells him not to worry because he has discovered a permanent cure.

Julia visits Lang and tells him she had visited Barnabas and learned about his claim of having found a permanent cure. She asks him about it, but he refuses to tell her anything. As she gets up to leave, Jeff comes through the door. Julia says "Goodbye" politely and leaves. Jeff tells Lang he is concerned that Julia saw them together because she and Vicki had seen earlier at the cemetery. Lang ask if they saw him digging. Jeff replies that they didn't. Lang, looking relieved, asks him Vicki and Julia were doing at Stanhope Cemetery. Jeff replies that they were not at Stanhope, but at the Eagle Hill cemetery. Lang asks him what he was doing at Eagle Hill cemetery, saying, "There hasn't been a burial there in 50 years!" Jeff replies that he doesn't know. Lang asks Jeff if he's returned empty handed. Jeff replies that he has. Lang becomes angry and orders him to go to Stanhope and carry out his orders. Jeff tells Lang that now that he knows Vicki, he doesn't want to continue doing what he's been doing for him anymore, that he feels it's a sick thing to do and it makes him feel dirty and rotten when he's with Vicki. Lang orders him to stay away from Vicki, saying Barnabas loves and wants to marry her and any interference would get in the way of his plans. Jeff refuses. Lang threatens to tell Vicki he, Jeff, had been in an institution for the criminally insane, convicted of murder, if he does not obey.

Victoria Winters has returned to the great house at Collinwood, back from her strange and frightening adventure in the past. Now she and all those around her are haunted by the terrible events she witnessed in the year 1795, events which may change the course of history, and forever alter the destinies of all those who live in Collinwood. Even now there is one who has fallen under the spell of an evil force from the past and who will soon be its prisoner.

It is midnight. Vicki comes downstairs and hears voices in the drawing room, but when she looks in, she finds that Roger is alone in there. He sees her and accuses her of eavesdropping. She apologizes, saying she didn't mean to. He tells her he doesn't like the frame on the portrait and will go into town to get it reframed. Vicki tells him, "But Roger, all the shops are closed this time of night." He asks her why she calls him "Roger", saying his name is "Joshua". He takes the portrait and starts towards the front doors, but Vicki bars his way. He threatens to harm her if she doesn't get out of the way. Vicki picks up the telephone and shouts, "Look, Roger, this proves that it's the 20th century!" Roger snaps out of the trance. Vicki tells Roger the portrait is evil, but Roger dismisses her claim as "ridiculous". Vicki starts to go upstairs. Roger looks at the painting and, becoming possessed again, picks it up and goes out the front doors. Vicki sees this but comes down too late to stop him. She goes into the drawing room and falls asleep there.

When she awakens in the morning, Roger and the portrait are still gone. Jeff comes and asks her if she is in love with Barnabas. Vicki replies that she is not, that she was planning to marry him at one time but no longer feels like doing so for some reason. She tells Jeff she must go to the hospital and tell Barnabas this. Jeff warns her against going to the hospital, saying it's not a safe place for her, but will not explain what he means. Vicki complains about his secretiveness and tells him she doesn't even know what he does for a living. He tells her he works for Lang, but will tell her no more, asking her to trust him like she did Peter Bradford. He tells her if she must go to the hospital, to make it a quick visit.

At the hospital, Barnabas is dressed and getting ready to leave. He is looking at himself in the mirror. Vicki comes and tells him that she is remembering more about her trip to the past and says she thinks she was there for two reasons, one, to save Daniel Collins and two, to meet Peter Bradford. She tells him she is certain that Jeff Clark is somehow really Peter Bradford, and until she can find out for sure, she cannot marry him, Barnabas.

Barnabas, devastated, goes to Dr. Lang's house and tells him to stop the experiments, saying Vicki will not marry him, and there's no point in starting a new life without her. Lang, not wanting to stop the experiments, is furious. He asks Barnabas if Vicki's refusal to marry him has anything to do with Jeff Clark. Barnabas tells him that it does. Lang tells Barnabas that Jeff works for him and tells him he will take care of it. Jeff Clark comes into the room, carrying a large box. He looks surprised to see Barnabas there. Barnabas excuses himself and leaves. Jeff puts the box on a table. Lang opens it and pronounces it, "A perfect specimen!". Inside lies a severed arm, lying on ice...

Victoria Winters has returned to the great house at Collinwood, back from the strange and frightening adventure in the past. Now she and all those around her are haunted by the terrible events she witnessed in the year 1795, events which may change the course of history, and forever alter the destinies of all who live at Collinwood, and Barnabas Collins, fearful of what the future may bring, places his destiny in the hands of a stranger.

Elizabeth tells Mrs. Johnson to hang the portrait of Angelique on the wall over the desk, but Mrs. Johnson tells her that the portrait is on longer on the easel where it was. Elizabeth remarks, "Maybe Roger knows where it is", but Mrs. Johnson tells her that Roger's not in the house, and that his bed hasn't been slept in. Elizabeth, worried, tells Mrs. Johnson that she will call the authorities if he doesn't show up by night. Mrs. Johnson tells Elizabeth that her grown son is coming to stay in Collinsport for a while and asks if he could stay at Collinwood. Elizabeth replies, "Certainly."

Barnabas drops by. Elizabeth tells him Roger is missing, and has been acting strangely ever since Vicki brought the portrait home. She tells him of Roger's continual staring at the portrait, She recounts the incident where he called her "Naomi" and insisted his name was "Joshua". Barnabas recommends that the portrait be removed due to its strange influence on Roger, but Elizabeth tells him that the portrait is gone and no one knows what happened to it. Vicki, who's just come into the room, tells Elizabeth she knows what happened to it and recounts the events of the previous night. Elizabeth tells her she will have the grounds searched and leaves. Barnabas stares at Vicki's neck and gets the urge to bite it. He tells Vicki he suddenly does not feel well and must go to see Dr. Lange and leaves.

There is a knock at the door. Vicki answers it and screams. Standing there is a man who looks just like Noah Gifford. He identifies himself as Harry Johnson. Elizabeth comes running and asks Vicki what's wrong. Vicki replies that the man looks just like the man she shot in the past. Mrs. Johnson comes and asks what's wrong. Elizabeth replies, "Nothing. Just a case of mistaken identity" and takes a shaken Vicki to her room. Mrs. Johnson takes her son into the drawing room and asks him what he did to cause Vicki to scream. He replies that he did nothing, that it must have been a case of mistaken identity as the woman said. She tells him he had better watch himself this time, that if he should get "itchy fingers" again, she will not be able to help him and he'll have to go back to prison.

While cleaning Roger's room, Mrs. Johnson finds Dr. Lang's head-mirror and takes it to Elizabeth, who finds Lang's name on it.

Shaken by the relapse, Barnabas goes to Dr. Lang and demands to know more about his permanent cure. Lang refuses to tell him the details, but does tell him that as part of the cure, he can give him the physical appearance of Jeff Clark if he chooses.

Late at night, Harry Johnson, not heeding his mother's warning, goes into the drawing room, closes the doors and starts going through the desk drawers.

Victoria Winters has returned to the great house at Collinwood back from her strange and frightening adventure in the past. Now she and all those around her are haunted by the terrible events she witnessed in the year 1795 - events which may change the course of history, and forever alter the destinies of all who live at Collinwood. On this night, in the home of a Collinsport doctor, Barnabas Collins hopes to learn how he can be free of the curse that has plagued him for almost two hundred years.

While discussing the disappearance of Roger and the portrait, Barnabas tells Julia who Angelique was. Julia takes Lang's head mirror out of a drawer, tells Barnabas that Roger had stolen it and asks if he knows why he would do such a thing. Barnabas tells her Lang's life is danger and they leave to go to him.

Roger goes to Dr. Lang's house/office and pretends he wants to have a physical examination. While Lang's back is turned, Roger takes an antique harpoon hanging on the wall as a decoration and prepares to kill Lang with it, but a knock at the door snaps him out of the trance. Barnabas and Julia come in and Julia takes Roger back to Collinwood. Barnabas tells Lang that Roger was possessed by Angelique and was trying to kill him, but Lang thinks this is ridiculous. Barnabas shows him his head mirror and tells him it was found in Roger's room. He tells him that it was used to cause his headaches by sympathetic magic. Julia returns and tells them Roger escaped while she was taking him back to Collinwood.

Roger shows up at Professor Elliot Stoke's house and knocks at the door. Stokes answers and tells him, "I don't have much time to talk to you. I'm waiting for one of my students - I teach at Rockport University - in fact, I thought it was her." Roger comes in, holding the portrait, wrapped in paper, and tells Stokes he and Vicki have decided to give it to him. He unwraps the portrait, but THE CANVAS IS BLANK.

Barnabas and Julia return to Collinwood and are shocked to find that the portrait of Angelique is back on the easel...

At the Great House of Collinwood, Victoria Winters has returned from her strange and haunting adventures in the past, but the terrible events she lived through in the year 1795 are beginning to change not only her life, but the lives of those around her, and the changes are like a devil's game: one man escapes an ancient curse, another disappears and a painting he took with him is mysteriously returned, though he has not.

Vicki and Elizabeth find Roger's coat and luggage sitting in the foyer. This puzzles Vicki. She tells Elizabeth she saw Roger leave, and he had no luggage. They also notice that the portrait is back on its easel.

Barnabas comes to Collinwood. Elizabeth leaves, saying she's going to call the shipyards and see if Roger is there. Barnabas tells Vicki that Angelique's portrait is having a bad influence on Roger and tells her she must get rid of it, as Angelique's power may still be active after 200 years. Vicki agrees and tells him she will contact Professor Elliot Stokes.

Elizabeth returns and tells them that Roger hasn't shown up at the shipyards. Just as she says this, Roger comes in through the front doors and into the drawing room. He is in great spirits and asks that champagne be brought for a celebration. He announces that he has just been married. A woman come in. Roger introduces her as his new wife Cassandra, his new wife. Cassandra (Lara Parker) looks just like Angelique except she has jet black hair worn in a permanent. Barnabas, shocked at the resemblance, excuses himself and leaves. Elizabeth takes Roger into the study and argues with him about his sudden marriage. She tells him that she thinks something is seriously wrong with him mentally and that he should see a doctor.

In the drawing room, Vicki talks to Cassandra for awhile and learns that she is a student of Prof. Stokes and met Roger at Prof. Stokes house. Vicki excuses herself and leaves. Cassandra, now alone in the drawing room, looks at Angelique's portrait and laughs...

At the great house of Collinwood, Victoria Winters has returned from her strange and haunting adventure in the past. But the terrible events she lived through there are beginning to change not only her life, but the lives of those around her. For mysterious and unexplainable things are happening... events which make no sense, but must be part of some grand, evil plan. And the latest is a sudden marriage between total strangers.

Elizabeth tells Cassandra that Roger seems to be suffering from some psychiatric problems and it would be best for Roger if she had the marriage annulled, but Cassandra refuses to do so. Vicki notices Cassandra's resemblance to the portrait and mentions it to Elizabeth, but Elizabeth replies that that doesn't mean anything.

Vicki tells Julia that she thinks Cassandra IS Angelique and that Barnabas is in danger, but Julia dismisses her warning.

At bedtime, in their bedroom, Roger pours two glasses of champagne, one for himself and one for Cassandra. While Roger is not looking, Cassandra puts some kind of powder into Roger's champagne. They drink. The drug puts Roger to sleep.

Cassandra goes down into the foyer and goes to Barnabas' portrait. She talks to it, saying, "If Vicki hadn't gone back into the past, I would never have known you had escaped from the chained coffin. You will not escape from my curse!" Vicki is right. She IS Angelique...

Memorable quotes

Julia (to Cassandra): "Mrs. Collins, you're talking about a very inbred family."

At the Great House of Collinwood, Victoria Winters has returned to her life from a strange and haunting adventure in the past. And those terrible events she lived through are beginning to change not only her life, but the lives of those around her. Now, a sudden marriage between strangers has brought a new threat to a man who has lived for two hundred years. For he recognizes the new bride from the past, and he knows she is a witch, who has returned to restore the curse he has escaped.

Barnabas, at the Old House, receives a note from Cassandra. He recognizes the handwriting as being that of Angelique. The note says that she will wait for him in the old house at 10:00. Professor Stokes arrives, having been called by Barnabas, who has asked him to bring a talisman that protects against witchcraft. Barnabas offers to buy the talisman, but Stokes tells him it's not for sale. Eventually, he agrees to lend it to Barnabas.

At 10:00, Cassandra comes to the old house. Barnabas addresses her as "Angelique", and tells her he knows she's come to renew her curse. She denies this, tells him what he says makes no sense and leaves.

Barnabas goes to Dr. Lang, shows him that talisman and tells him about it, but Lang dismisses it as superstition. Barnabas tries to convince him to take the medallion, saying he will be Angelique's first target since he's helping him escape the vampire curse. There's a knock at the door. Lang tells Barnabas he's expecting a patient and asks him to go to another room. Barnabas leaves the room, leaving the talisman behind. Lang lets his patient in. It is Cassandra. She tells him she is a "Mrs. Blair" and is seeking treatment for a sprained ankle. While Lang is examining her, she tries to put a spell to kill him by causing him to have a heart attack. Lang grabs his chest in pain, but stumbles around and manages to make his way over to his desk and pick up the talisman. The amulet works and the spell stops. Lang has no memory of what just happened. Cassandra, her plot foiled, leaves. After she leaves, Barnabas returns and tells Lang that Cassandra was Angelique. He tells Lang that due to the danger posed by her, he must give him the permanent cure immediately, but Lang tells him that his experiments aren't yet finished. Barnabas presses him for the details of the cure. Lang agrees that he should know and takes him to his laboratory.

In his laboratory, Lang shows Barnabas an operating table covered by a cloth, referring to the thing underneath as "his creation", which he tells Barnabas is unfinished. He tells Barnabas he will drain his life force from his body and transfer it into his creation, and that in his new body, he will no longer be afflicted with the vampire curse and that the witch will think he died and not know he's really inhabiting another body. He lifts part of the cloth. We see an arm that looks like it's stitched to the rest of the body...

Victoria Winters has returned to the great house at Collinwood, back from her strange and frightening adventure in the past. Now she and all those around her are haunted by the terrible events she witnessed in the year 1795. Events which may change the course of history, and forever alter the destinies of all who live at Collinwood. On this night, Barnabas Collins, for almost 200 years a prisoner of a witch's curse, will learn an amazing secret... one that could set him free forever.

Lang explains to Barnabas that his creation is finished except for the head. Barnabas asks Lang if there's any chance of failure. Lang replies that there is a small one. Barnabas asks what failure would mean. Lang replies that it would mean his death. Barnabas, fearing failure, tells Lang he's not sure he wants to go through with it. Barnabas asks if he will his memories and feelings from his current life. Lang replies that he doesn't know. Lang tells him he will give him time to think about it. He tells Barnabas that the choice of face will be his. Barnabas asks, "Can you make me look like Jeff Clark?" Lang replies, "I can make it BE the face of Jeff Clark!"

Lang and Jeff go to the cemetery. Hiding in the trees with a shovel, they watch a gravedigger burying a body. When the gravedigger finishes and leaves, they go to the fresh grave. Lang orders Jeff to dig, but Jeff announces that he can no longer do this. He tells Lang that he quits, calling Lang a ghoul. Lang threatens to tell Vicki about Jeff's past, but Jeff replies that he has already decided to tell her about the sanitarium. Lang then threatens to tell Vicki about the murders Jeff's committed, but Jeff replies that he has no memories of ever having committed any murders and accuses Lang of having made them up. Lang tells Jeff he had been found wandering around the docks of Portsmouth in a dazed condition with a rope in his pocket, the fibers from which were later found to match those on the necks of two women who had been strangled with a rope. Jeff tells Lang he thinks he's bluffing.

Barnabas meets Julia in the garden and tells her Lang has what he claims is a permanent cure for vampirism. He asks her what she knows about Lang. She tells him all she knows about Lang is that he's a competent surgeon. She asks Barnabas about the details of the permanent cure, but Barnabas refuses to tell her. Julia leaves. Barnabas sits and thinks for awhile, but then, hearing voices, leaves.

Vicki and Jeff come into the garden. Jeff tells Vicki about his having once been confined to a sanitarium. He tells her he has no idea who he is or what he was doing before the sanitarium, but that with her help, he hopes to find out. She tells him she is certain he is Peter Bradford. They kiss. Barnabas, hiding in the trees, sees them...

Victoria Winters has returned to the great house at Collinwood, back from her strange and frightening adventure in the past. Now she and all those around her are haunted by the terrible events she witnessed in the year 1795. Events which may change the course of history, and forever alter the destinies of all who live at Collinwood. Indeed one life, that of Roger Collins, has already been changed, because of a woman who is a total stranger to him.

Carolyn returns to Collinwood. She is greeted at the door by Cassandra. Carolyn asks, "Who are you?" Cassandra replies, "I'm Mrs. Collins". Carolyn, puzzled, replies, "I'm afraid I don't understand". Cassandra explains, "I'm Roger's wife". Carolyn is shocked. Tony Peterson comes to Collinwood and asks to talk to Carolyn. He and Carolyn go into the drawing room to talk and close the doors.

Peterson angrily tells Carolyn he saw Barnabas kissing her at the old house. (Actually, he was biting her. Peterson mistook this for a sensual kiss.)

Outside in the foyer, Cassandra opens Peterson's briefcase, which he has left on the table, and steals his cigarette lighter.

Carolyn, sick of Peterson's jealousy, tells him to go talk to Barnabas about it. Peterson tells her he will.

Peterson goes to the old house and tells Barnabas he saw him kissing Carolyn. Barnabas tells him it was nothing but an avuncular kiss. Peterson remarks that it looked like much more than that to him.

Cassandra, in the garden, uses the lighter to cast a spell on Peterson and summon him to the garden.

Peterson goes to the garden. There, Cassandra casts a spell on him putting him under her powers. She tells him that most of the time, he will be normal and have no knowledge of being under a spell, but any time she needs him, she will be able to summon him, put him into a trance and be able to have him do her bidding, and that after he is out of the trance, he will have no memory of what happened.

Angelique comes to Barnabas in a dream. She tells him she will put a new curse on him, a dream curse, that that is how the curse will return to him. She tells him that soon, someone will have a dream and be terrified by it and the feeling of terror won't leave until the person tells the second person in the chain. The second person in the chain will have the dream with more terrifying details filled and will be terrified until telling the third person in the chain and so on until finally the dream reaches the final person in the chain - him. She tells him "And what you see in the dream will turn your blood into ice!"

Victoria Winters has returned to the great house at Collinwood from a strange and haunting adventure in the past, and now the terrible events that she lived through are beginning to change not only her life, but the lives of those around her. A mysterious painting, and a surprise marriage between two strangers have led to the suspicion that a witch has returned to Collinwood, determined to restore a curse that began almost two hundred years ago.

There's a knock at the door of Collinwood. Cassandra, who happens to be in the foyer, answers it. It is Maggie Evans. Maggie tells Cassandra that she's come to see Vicki. Cassandra is astonished by the Maggie's resemblance to Josette and keeps staring at her. When Maggie asks Cassandra why she is staring at her, Cassandra tells he she looks just like someone she knew a long time ago - when she was a child. Vicki comes down, and she and Maggie go into the drawing room to talk.

In the foyer, Cassandra tells the portrait of Barnabas that because of her resemblance to Josette, she has decided that Maggie will be the first victim of the dream curse.

In the drawing room, Vicki is pouring a cup of tea for Maggie. She asks her what she wants in it, cream or lemon, but Maggie seems a million miles off. Vicki asks why she seems so distracted. Maggie tells Vicki that Cassandra had kept staring at her. Vicki realizes why but does not say anything. She asks Maggie if a friend of hers, Jeff Clark, can stay at her cottage until he finds a job. Maggie tells Vicki she'll arrange it with her father.

Jeff, at Lang's house, telephones Vicki. Vicki tells him she has made the arrangements, that she has found a place for him to live temporarily. Peter prepares to leave Lang's house and service, but Lang ambushes him and injects him with something, knocking him out.

At night, Cassandra sends Maggie the dream curse. In it, Maggie hears a knock at the door of the cottage. She opens the door. Outside is Jeff Clark - whom she has never met. Jeff beckons to her to follow him. Maggie doesn't want to, but feels compelled to and does. Jeff leads her to a door, opens it, and gestures for her to go in. She does. But instead of following her in, Jeff closes the door and locks her in. Maggie hears Jeff's voice reciting a poem,

"Through sight and sound and faceless terror,
"Through endless corridors of trial and error,
"A head of blazing light does burn,
"And one door leads to the point of return...

Maggie finds herself in a foggy room with many doors. She tries two, but finds that both are locked. She starts to hear music. It is the music from Josette's music box. She goes and opens the door behind which the music is coming from, finds it is unlocked and opens it. Inside is a green death's head floating in the dark. Maggie awakens, screaming.

Jeff awakens and finds himself strapped to a table. Lang is standing over him. Jeff is puzzled and asks Lang why he is strapped to the table and why didn't just kill him. Then he that Lang is holding a scalpel, then looks over and sees the headless creature lying on another table and suddenly realizes the Lang intends to use HIS head for the creature. He struggles, but Lang knocks him out with another injection, then places the scalpel to his neck and prepares to cut...

The same, unblinking moon that Victoria Winters saw shining on Collinwood in her terror-written journey into the past shines this night over the great house by the sea. But the moon, and Collinwood itself, are not the only survivors from the past. Terror, too, is beyond time, and it has pursued the inhabitants of Collinwood down from the dark past to an even darker present. And the ghoulish plan to cure Barnabas Collins unfolds an inexorably as time and within increasing terror.

But before Lang can cut, he is interrupted by a knock at the door. Lang answers it. It is Barnabas. He tells Lang that he is suffering from a relapse, that he is having an urge to drink blood. Barnabas sees Jeff lying on the table and, realizing what Lang is about to do, begins to feel guilty and tells Lang he has chosen not to go through with it. Lang, playing to Barnabas' jealousy, tells Barnabas that if he does not, Jeff and Vicki will marry. Barnabas agrees to the experiment and leaves the lab.

Vicki comes to Lang's house to look for Jeff. She rings the doorbell but no one answers. Finding the door unlocked, she goes in and calls for Jeff. Barnabas, who's coming down from the lab upstairs, hears Vicki. He goes back up to the lab and tells Lang that Vicki is downstairs looking for Jeff. Lang goes down and tells Vicki that Jeff is not there, that he doesn't know where he is. Vicki starts to become hysterical and screams that she feels something terrible has happened to Jeff and starts to babble about how much she loves him, saying that for the first time in her life she was close to being happy. Barnabas, listening from upstairs, hears this and, becoming insanely jealous, goes to Lang's lab and prepares to kill Jeff. However, his conscience intervenes. He says, "Enough!" and un-straps Jeff. When Lang returns, Barnabas tells him that he has decided not to go through with the experiment, adding, "This time the decision is final!" Lang tells him that he'll have to kill Jeff anyway because he knows too much. Jeff regains consciousness, jumps off the table, grabs a scalpel and tries to attack Lang, but Lang once again manages to knock him out with an injection and straps him back to the table.

Barnabas tells Lang it isn't necessary for him to kill Jeff, that he can get Julia to hypnotize him and make him forget everything, but Lang vetoes the idea, saying he doesn't want to get Julia involved because he doesn't want anyone else to know what he's been doing. Barnabas tells him Julia can be trusted to keep a secret, but Lang still refuses. Barnabas, not wanting a murder to occur, picks up the phone and tells Lang ,"I'm going to call Julia whether you like it or not and there's nothing you can do to stop me." But Lang opens a drawer, takes out a pistol, and aims it at Barnabas. Barnabas, unconcerned, tells Lang that bullets cannot harm him, but Lang reminds him that he has been temporarily cured of vampirism and CAN be harmed by bullets while temporarily not a vampire. He tells Barnabas, "I'll give you until a count of three to put the phone down. One...Two..."

A silent moon shines over the great house of Collinwood, a silent observer to all the terrors, past and present, that had visited the Collins family. Far away from Collinwood, a member of the Collins family is in danger, far greater danger than he knows.

Barnabas puts the phone down. He again tries to convince Lang that Julia can be trusted, but Lang still refuses to let him call her. Barnabas again picks up the phone. He tells Lang, "I'm going to call her. I don't believe you'll kill me. I'm too necessary for your experiment."

At Collinwood, the phone rings. Cassandra and Julia are in the drawing room. Cassandra answers the phone, then gives it to Julia. Barnabas tells Julia to come to Lang's house. He tells her to bring the medallion she uses to hypnotize people with her.

Julia goes to Lang's house. Barnabas and Lang tell her that Jeff was once in a mental hospital and was released into Lang's care. They lie that and went berserk tonight and attacked Lang, shouting that Lang wanted to kill him and cut his head off - obviously the ravings of a lunatic. They tell Julia that she must hypnotize Jeff and make him forget the events of the night or it might drive him insane.

Lang takes Julia to Jeff's room, where Jeff is tied up in bed. Julia tells Lang she needs to be alone with Jeff. Lang leaves. Jeff regains consciousness and tells Julia that Lang had planned to cut off his head and put it on a creature he had created out of body parts. Seeing the dubious look on Julia's face, he tells her, "If you don't believe me, go to the lab and look for yourself!" Not believing his far-fetched story, Julia hypnotizes him and makes him forget the events of the night. Then, curious, she decides to go to Lang's lab and have a look anyway. She finds Lang's "creation" and screams.

Hearing Julia's screams, Barnabas and Lang come running to the lab. They explain the plan to her and ask for her cooperation. She tells them she will, saying, "I want to see Barnabas cured" and leaves. Lang tells Barnabas he does not trust Julia and will follow her. They do so. Downstairs, Lang notices that a door to his sitting room, which should be open, is closed. Inside, Julia, uncomfortable with the idea that although Jeff will not be killed, someone else might be to complete the experiment, has decided to call the police. Outside the locked door, Barnabas and Lang hear Julia telling the operator to connect her to the police...

Tape Date: April 23, 1968

Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins
Grayson Hall as Dr. Julia Hoffman
Addison Powell as Dr. Eric Lang
Lara Parker as Cassandra Collins
Jerry Lacy as Tony Peterson

The great house of Collinwood harbors a strange new menace, a woman, Cassandra Collins, and the fact that she is there is spreading anxiety and fear among those who call Collinwood home. One man in particular is desperate to escape the curse which still threatens him, but someone has discovered the horrifying way he intends to escape.

Barnabas gets Julia to hang up by shouting, "Julia! Remember Someone! Dave Woodard! Remember Dave Woodard!" Julia hangs up and comes out. Lang tells her he won't kill anyone for the head, saying he will get the head the same way he got the other body parts, from cadavers, and she agrees to be silent about the experiment.

Barnabas and Julia return to Collinwood. In the garden, Julia tries to talk Barnabas out of taking part in Lang's experiment, but Barnabas replies that he must escape the vampire curse before Angelique can do anything. Unknown to them, Cassandra is hiding outside the garden fence eavesdropping on them. She hears Barnabas and Julia talking about Lang's plan, but they do not discuss the details. Barnabas sees Cassandra, grabs her and shouts, "Angelique!" Cassandra manages to struggle free, exclaims, "You're crazy!" and runs off.

Cassandra summons Tony Peterson, puts him in a trance and tells him to go to Lang's house and steal the talisman. She tells him she'll make sure Lang isn't home. Peterson asks Cassandra, "Why did you choose me?" Cassandra replies, "Because you resemble someone I knew a long time ago. A Rev. Trask."

Lang comes to the old house and asks Barnabas what he wants, saying his answering service told him he left a message asking him to come here. Barnabas replies, "I left you no message" and realizing this must be some plot of Angelique's, asks, "Do you have the talisman with you?" Lang searches his pockets, doesn't find it and tells Barnabas, "I must have left it at my desk." Barnabas tells Lang they must go and get it.

Peterson steals the talisman from Lang's desk. He goes and gives it to Cassandra. Cassandra is ecstatic, saying, "Now now only will Lang unable to save Barnabas, he'll be unable to save himself!"

(COL 7/DISK 3 #10)

Tape Date: April 24, 1968
Air Date: April 30, 1968 Tuesday
Writer: Sam Hall
Director: John Sedwick
Worldvision Rerun: 270
Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins
Addison Powell as Dr. Eric Lang
Kathryn Leigh Scott as Maggie Evans
Roger Davis as Jeff Clark
Alexandra Moltke as Victoria Winters

At the Great House of Collinwood, Victoria Winters has returned from a strange and haunting adventure in the past, but the terrible events she lived through there are beginning to change not only her life, but the lives of those around her, for a witch has followed her into the present, a witch who is determined to keep one man under her hideous curse, and to kill anyone who tries to help him escape it. And now the talisman which protects him has been stolen.

Barnabas and Lang rush to Lang's house, but when they get there, they find that the talisman is gone. They run into Jeff, who is packed and preparing to leave. Jeff tells Lang he has no memory of the previous night, but suspects something happened, that he doesn't believe Lang's story that he fell asleep while packing. He leaves. Barnabas and Lang decide that they must act before Angelique can act. Lang remarks that things would go much faster if he had an assistant. Barnabas asks if such an assistant need be skilled; Lang replies that he only has to be able bodied, have good hands and be able to keep a secret. Barnabas tells Lang that his former servant Willie Loomis would be a good choice, but that he is confined to Windcliff Hospital at present. He suggests that maybe Julia could get him released into their care.

At the Evan's cottage, Maggie is sitting on the sofa, still terrified by the dream. There's a knock at the door. She answers it. She is shocked to see that it is the man in her dream. The man introduces himself as Jeff Clark and tells her Vicki told him he could stay here for awhile. Maggie apologizes to him, saying she had a dream in which was a man who looked just like him. Jeff asks about her dream. Maggie tells him. As soon as she is finished, she is surprised to find that the feeling of terror is completely gone.

Vicki comes to the cottage and tells Jeff she is very angry at him for not meeting her last night as they had arranged. She mentions that she had gone to Lang's last night looking for him but that Lang had told her he wasn't there. Jeff now realizes that something DID happen last night. He notices Vicki's charm bracelet and reacts strangely to it. Vicki tells him about her witchcraft trial and mentions that was persecuted by someone named Trask. Jeff tells her he thinks he once knows someone named Trask, but cannot remember when or where.

Later, at night, Jeff dozes off in a chair in the living room of the Evans Cottage and has a dream. It is almost the same as Maggie's, except when he opens the door of the cottage, he finds Dr. Lang there beckoning him. He follows him and, like Maggie, is locked in the room with many doors. He hears Lang's voice recite the same poem. He hears Josette's music coming from behind a door and opens it to find a green death's head, as did Maggie. He closes the door. The music starts to come from behind a different door. He opens it and finds a guillotine in the door frame. The blade falls loudly. Jeff awakens, terrified.
