Time passes at Collinwood and life goes on, but only from moment to moment, its fate depended on the frightening game of life or death being played out in Old House on the Collins estate. There on this night, a bizarre experiment is about to be performed.

A shot of the wall clock shows 30 seconds passing. Barnabas tells Julia to stop the experiment. She does. Adam asks why they've stopped. Barnabas tells him it's because Carolyn is in danger. Adam becomes angry, saying, "You told me she wouldn't be!" Julia unbuckles Carolyn and gives her an injection. Barnabas asks what the injection is for. Julia replies that it's to revive Carolyn. Moments pass, but nothing happens. Carolyn does not regain consciousness. Barnabas asks how long the drug will take to revive Carolyn. Julia replies, "It should have taken effect almost immediately. In fact, Carolyn should have revived by herself the moment the equipment was turned off". Adam a takes Carolyn off the table and says he's taking her upstairs. Julia tells him that Carolyn shouldn't be moved, but Adam replies that he doesn't believe anything she says anymore and takes Carolyn upstairs. Barnabas asks Julia what went wrong. Julia replies that she doesn't know, that what just happened is very different from what happened in the first experiment. Barnabas asks if Carolyn is in danger of dying. Julia replies, "Maybe". Barnabas tells Julia that she must go upstairs and make sure Carolyn does not die, that otherwise, Adam's fury will be uncontrollable and there will be a bloodbath at Collinwood.

Upstairs, Adam has put Carolyn in Josette's room. Carolyn regains consciousness and asks what happened. Adam tells her the experiment failed. Carolyn tells Adam that she's disappointed that he doesn't have a mate, but Adam replies that he no longer cares about a mate, only about her. Carolyn continues to feel sharp pains. She tells Adam that during the experiment, she had a dream in which she found herself in a room all alone. Suddenly, the walls cracked and fell down, and all around was thick fog, and she could see nothing else. Suddenly, some shapes came out of the fog. They are dead body parts, all wanting her life. She screams in terror. Adam assures her, "They're not going to take your life! I've stopped all that! I'm not going to let them do the experiment again!". Carolyn continues to speak for awhile, then lapse into unconsciousness again. Julia comes into the room and asks Adam what happened. Adam tells Julia that Carolyn was regained consciousness and talked for awhile, but then lapsed into unconsciousness again. Julia examines Carolyn and tells Adam, "She is dead". Adam says, "Don't say anything more to me!" and starts to walk out of the room. Julia asks Adam where he's going, but Adam just glares at her ominously and leaves.

Julia goes down the stairs to the foyer and sees Adam walking toward the front doors and calls to him, but he doesn't answer and just walks out of the house. Barnabas comes up from the cellar, apparently hurt, and tells Julia that Adam has gone to Collinwood to kill everyone there and tells Julia he must go there and warn them. Julia tells Barnabas that he's too badly hurt to go and volunteers to go instead, but Barnabas tells her its too dangerous and he must go. Julia tells him that in his condition he will never make it there, that she'll have to treat him first. She goes up to Josette's room to get her medical bag. She glances on the bed and is surprised to see that Carolyn is gone...

The shadow of death hangs over the great house of Collinwood. On this night, at the old house on the Collins estate, two people live with the fear that all those who live at Collinwood may be destroyed before sunrise.

Julia goes back downstairs and tells Barnabas that Carolyn is gone. Barnabas asks her if she might not have made a mistake in examining Carolyn, that maybe Carolyn wasn't dead, but Julia replies that she is certain she was. Barnabas then says, "Then Adam must have taken the body". Julia replies that she doesn't think so, that when she left Carolyn and came downstairs, she saw Adam already leaving the house and he couldn't have come back to get her without their seeing him. Willie comes in and announces that they've got to do something about Maggie quickly, that he's not going to be able to keep her in the secret room forever because she's seen him opening the door and now knows how to open it. Barnabas asks Willie how he's keeping Maggie there now. Willie replies that he's drugging her every time he has to leave, but that that won't work forever, that sooner or later she'll escape. Barnabas tells Willie that he has more important things to worry about right now than Maggie, that the experiment has failed, that Carolyn has died and that Adam is going to Collinwood to kill the Collins family. Willie replies, "I don't think so. I saw him in the woods on my way to the old house, and he wasn't headed for Collinwood. He was just sitting under a tree." Barnabas asks if anyone was with Adam. Willie replies, "No. He was alone". Willie insists that they do something about Maggie. Julia agrees to go hypnotize her.

Maggie awakens in the secret room and, seeing that Willie isn't there, slides open the secret step and opens the door to go out, but finds Julia standing outside. Maggie tells Julia that she remembers everything now, that she knows what Barnabas Collins is. Julia argues that Barnabas is not evil. Maggie argues that he is. They argue about this for awhile. Then Julia tries to hypnotize Maggie. At first, this seems to be working, but suddenly Maggie snaps out of it and screams, "I remember now!! I remember it was YOU who hypnotized me and made me forget!" The hypnosis has failed. Maggie announces, "If I ever get out of here, I'll tell the whole world what Barnabas Collins is!"

Julia returns to the old house and tells Barnabas that her attempt to hypnotize Maggie again failed, that she is doubtful she will ever be able to successfully hypnotize Maggie again. Barnabas replies, "It doesn't matter anymore. With the Collins's in danger, the only thing to do now is to go to Collinwood and confess everything to them, Carolyn's death, the experiment, Adam, everything". Julia argues against this, saying that if Adam did not go to Collinwood to wreck vengeance immediately, he probably won't do it at all. She reasons, "What does he really want? To kill the Collins's? No. What he wants more than anything else is a mate. He'll probably think it over and, rather harming the Collins's, come and demand that we try again". Barnabas refuses to do this, saying he refuses to risk another life to bring the creation to life, and leaves to go to Collinwood.

Barnabas arrives outside the front door of Collinwood. He starts to have some second thoughts about confessing everything to the Collins's, but then decides to go through with it. He knocks on the door. It is opened....by Carolyn!"

On this night a stillness pervades the Great House of Collinwood. An ominous stillness, for unknown to the others, one member of the Collins Family is dead. And because of her death, Barnabas Collins has made a terrifying decision. A decision that may result in his own destruction.

Barnabas is so stunned he cannot speak. Carolyn tells him that she's all right, that she had just fainted. Barnabas asks her what she remembers. Carolyn replies that all she can remember is waking up in her own room at Collinwood. Barnabas asks Carolyn if she remembers who it was who brought her back to Collinwood. Carolyn replies that she assumed it was him and Julia. Barnabas leaves. Outside the door, he puzzles over what's happened. At first, he concludes that Julia must have made a mistake when she examined Carolyn and concluded that she was dead, but then figures that an experienced doctor like Julia couldn't have made such a mistake.

Adam and Nicholas Blair in Adam's room at Collinwood. Adam asks Blair how it's possible for Carolyn to be alive. Blair replies that he's responsible, that he has many powers. He tells Adam that they'll try the experiment again, this time with a woman he'll supply. He assures Adam he'll love his new mate, whom Blair dubs "Eve", just as much as he loves Carolyn. Adam replies that he's doubtful, but doesn't really care, that all he cares about right now is the fact that Carolyn is alive. He tells Blair he wants to see Carolyn. Blair tells Adam he can, but that it'll have to be to say goodbye as he must leave after the experiment. Blair leaves to get Carolyn.

Carolyn comes up to see Adam. She tells him she's disappointed that the experiment and tells him she's willing to try again. Adam vetoes the idea, telling her it's too dangerous. Carolyn tells Adam she's willing to try again in spite of the danger. Adam is very touched, but tells her he is going far, far away and must say goodbye to her. Carolyn tells Adam that she'll miss him. Adam asks her to think of him after he's gone. Carolyn replies that she will. Adam asks if he can hold her just once before leaving. Carolyn replies, "Yes". Adam holds her, then asks if he can kiss her. Again Carolyn replies, "Yes". Adam kisses her. He then says goodbye and leaves.

Adam goes to the old house and tells Barnabas that he has found a woman to supply the life force, that they will try to do the experiment again tonight.

In the foyer at Collinwood, Nicholas Blair is talking with Carolyn. Carolyn tells Blair she's disappointed that the experiment didn't work. Blair tells Carolyn that she can still help Adam, that she can assist in a ritual to summon a woman who's been dead for 200 years to be the life force. Carolyn agrees to help. Blair takes her takes her to a room in the basement of his house. There, there is a table with candles on it. Around the table is drawn a double circle. Blair tells Carolyn that during the ritual, she must not leave the circle under any circumstances or she may die, that the woman they are summoning is an evil one named Danielle Roget, who lived in France during the French Revolution and was responsible for sending at least 7 people to the guillotine, two of them from her own family, and later emigrated to Collinsport. He tells Carolyn, "She enjoys killing. The only reason I need you for the ritual is to lure her here. She will come for only one reason - to kill you, and she will, if you leave the protection of the circle". They start the ritual. Ghostly screams are heard. Carolyn panics and prepares to run, but Blair grabs her and tells her she must remain in the circle. Carolyn faints. The ghostly figure of a woman appears. Blair asks the ghostly figure if she wants to live again. The ghost replies that she does not see how that would be possible. Blair tells her it IS possible and tells her to appear to him again in solid form here at 3:00. The ghost replies that she can only hold a solid form for a few hours. Blair replies that a few hours will be enough. The ghost agrees to appear at 3:00. She asks if she may kill Carolyn. Blair refuses to let her do so and orders her to leave. He puts out the candles and the ghost disappears.

Blair brings Carolyn back to Collinwood and hypnotizes her, making her forget everything about the experiment and everything that's just happened. The clock in the foyer reads 2:45.

Later, at the old house, Barnabas is sitting, wondering where Julia is and how Adam is going to find a donor. There is a knock at the door. Barnabas answers it. Standing there is a woman he's never seen before. She comes in and introduces herself, "Hello, my name is Leona Eltridge. I'm a friend of Adam's". Adam comes walking in after her. He tells Barnabas, "She is the one, Barnabas. She is the one who will supply the life-force for my mate".

The great house of Collinwood is shrouded in darkness, and a cold night wind seems to whisper secrets, ominous secrets. In the Old House on the great estate, a frightened man waits not knowing what will happen next. If he knew his fear would mount to terror. For he is about to be confronted by one the living dead.

Adam tells Barnabas they are to perform the experiment immediately, but Barnabas tells him they cannot because Julia isn't there. Adam asks where Julia is. Barnabas replies that he doesn't know, that he's looked for her everywhere but hasn't been able to find her. Adam orders Barnabas to find Julia. Barnabas tries to question Leona Eltridge about who she is and why she's willing to participate in the experiment, but Adam refuses to let him do so, saying the woman is tired and needs to rest. He again orders Barnabas to go find Julia.

Right after Adam takes Leona Eltridge upstairs, Julia comes walking in through the front doors. With her is Professor Stokes. Julia tells Barnabas she didn't know what else to do, so went to Stokes. Stokes asks Barnabas if he's gone to the Collins family and confessed everything about the experiment to them yet. Barnabas replies that he hasn't, that when he went to Collinwood he found Carolyn there very much alive, that she says she had just fainted. Julia is surprised, and says, "I couldn't have made such a mistake! I'm certain she was dead!". Barnabas tells Julia and Stokes about Adam coming with Leona Eltridge. Stokes notes, "Eltridge'. An odd name. I don't think I've ever heard it before". Everyone wonders who Leona Eltridge is and how Adam got her.

Upstairs, Leona Eltridge tells Adam to remember what Blair had told them - that they are not to let anyone know that there's any connection between her and Blair. After Adam leaves, Leona thinks to herself, "If the experiment is successful and I live again, I'll kill them all!"

Adam comes back downstairs. Seeing Julia, he says, "Good! Now we can begin the experiment!". Julia tells him she must prepare the equipment first and goes down into the cellar to do so. Stokes asks Adam for permission to question Leona Eltridge. At first, Adam refuses, saying the woman is tired, but Stokes insists that he leave the decision to the woman and Adam agrees to ask her.

Adam goes upstairs to Josette's room and asks Leona Eltridge if she'll allow Stokes to question her. She replies that she heard about Stokes from Blair and would like to talk to him. Stokes warns her, "Professor Stokes is very smart", but Leona very confidently replies, "Don't worry. He'll believe every word I say!"

Adam brings Stokes into Josette's room and leaves. Stokes asks Eltridge how she learned about the experiment and why she's willing to endanger herself to help. She lies that she knew about the experiment because she had known and was in love with Dr. Lang, and explains that she's willing to help because she wants to see his work completed, that she's not concerned about the danger because she has an incurable terminal illness and has only a short time left to live anyway. Stokes asks, "How did you come to meet Adam?", but Leona Eltridge complains that she's tired and asks him to leave.

Stokes goes back downstairs and tells Barnabas Leona's story, saying he doesn't know whether to believe her or not. Barnabas replies, "It doesn't really matter. We'll have to go on with the experiment anyway". Stokes again notes that for some reason the name "Leona Eltridge" seems strange to him. Suddenly, he tells Barnabas, "There's something very important I've go to do" and leaves.

Barnabas goes down to the lab and finds that Julia is almost ready. He tells her the story Leona told Stokes. Julia remarks that she doesn't believe it because it's too pat and sentimental, but Barnabas replies that the have to do the experiment whether they believe it or not.

When everything is ready, Adam brings Leona down. Leona is strapped to the table. Julia offers her some painkillers, but Leona refuses, saying she doesn't like injections and she'll be able to stand the pain. The experiment begins. Leona screams in pain, but then says, "The pain!" in a strange tone of voice that seems to indicate she enjoys it. Suddenly, Julia notes that a gauge reads "50" and exclaims, "That's way to high!". Barnabas reports that Leona's pulse has stopped. Julia turns off the machines and covers Leona, sadly remarking, "She's dead. I don't like to think about what we've just done". Adam asks, "What happened? What are you doing?" Julia replies, "It's over. We've failed". Adam gets angry and threatens to kill both Julia and Barnabas. Suddenly, a moan comes from the bandaged head of the creation. Adam unwraps the bandages and exclaims, "The eyes are open!!! She's alive! She's alive!!!!"

The people who live in the Great House of Collinwood rest unaware of the drama which is taking place in another house on the great estate. For an experiment is ending, an experiment which, in a previous attempt, this night, has already caused great suffering. An experiment which if successful this time will provide a mate for one man, and remove his perilous threat to the entire Collins household”.

While Adam studies his new mate, Julia agonizes over the fact that the donor died. Barnabas comforts her, reminding her that Leona had a terminal illness and had wanted to help in spite of the danger. Adam suddenly exclaims that there's something wrong with his new mate, that she's breathing and is alive, but just lies there. Julia tries to prick the mate with a pin to see if she responds, but Adam refuses to let Julia cause pain to his new mate. Instead, he tries to talk to the mate and get her to respond, but she doesn't. Everyone discusses what went wrong and what to do. Julia suggests that maybe something's wrong with the brain and suggests a brain scan. Barnabas notes, "But you'd have to take her to a hospital for that!". Julia replies, "I could have Windcliff send an ambulance and bring her there". Suddenly, the creation groans and starts to move. Adam, Julia and Barnabas are surprised to find that the new creation, unlike Adam, can already speak. The creation says, "It's been a long time!" and says she's from another time, another place, but when asked what she means, says she doesn't know why she said what she said. Barnabas tells Eve that it's impossible for her to remember anything because she has just awakened for the first time, that she wasn't alive before. This upsets her and she tries to get up, but faints. There is a frantic knocking noise coming from upstairs. Barnabas goes upstairs to see who it is. It's Professor Stokes. Stokes rushes downstairs and asks if the experiment's been done yet. He is disappointed to find that it has. He tells Barnabas he has something very important to tell him. Julia and Adam take the creation up to Josette's room to rest. Stokes tells Barnabas, "I left my proof up in the drawing room". They go upstairs. There, Stokes shows Barnabas a child's learning toy, a blackboard with magnetized letters which stick to it. He wryly remarks, "These letters have many uses. I originally bought them to teach Adam to read. Now there going to teach us something". There are some magnetic letters forming the name "LEONA ELTRIDGE" on the blackboard. Julia comes down into the drawing room. Stokes tells Barnabas and Julia to look at the blackboard. They do. Stokes then rearranges the letters on the blackboard and reads it, "DANIELLE ROGET, an anagram". Barnabas asks who Danielle Roget is. Stokes tells him that she's the most evil woman who ever lived, that she was responsible for the deaths of 12 men in France, but escaped from France to America, where she was eventually hanged. He tells Barnabas and Julia that he thinks it was Danielle Roget's life-force that was used to animate the new creation, and that he suspects that Nicholas Blair is somehow behind this, saying, "He conjured up Danielle Roger from the depths of hell to supply the life force!". He theorizes that the new creation is therefore evil and suggests that she be destroyed. Julia is dubious and tells Stokes they're going to need more evidence than just an anagram to believe that.

Julia has left. Barnabas tells Stokes he agrees with Julia that there's really no proof of his theory, though he admits, "Maybe it's because I'm anxious to see Adam leave with her". Stokes tells Barnabas he has some feeling for Adam and doesn't want to see him hurt by this evil woman. Adam comes down the stairs. He tells Barnabas that he plans to leave with Eve shortly. Stokes begs him not to, saying, "Do not be alone with her!". He explains his theory to Adam and tells him, "That woman is evil!", but Adam refuses to listen to him, getting angry. Stokes tells him, "I'm only telling you this for your sake", but Adam angrily replies, "I think you are not my friend anymore!".

The new creation awakens. Adam talks to her for awhile. After Adam leaves, the window blows open. Then the door opens by itself. Eve argues with what appears to be an invisible presence, saying, "I remember you! You have come for me! Non, mon petit! I will now go back with you! I am alive now! I will never go back!".

Peace at Collinwood on this starless night is an illusion. For in an Old House on the estate, a miracle has occurred, a body has been brought to life, and one man is convinced that only tragedy can result if she is allowed to live.

Adam goes down into the drawing room and finds Stokes and Barnabas there. Stokes tells Adam his theory that Eve is a reincarnation of an evil woman. Adam tells Stokes, "That's ridiculous!" Stokes asks Adam where and how he got Leona Eltridge, but Adam is refuses to answer, saying he's tired of all the questions. Stokes asks to be allowed to speak to Eve. Adam refuses. Stokes says, "If I'm wrong, you have nothing to worry about". Adam reluctantly agrees to let Stokes speak to Eve, but tells him, "I must talk to her first".

Adam goes upstairs to ask Eve a few questions. He breaks the news to her that she, like him, is an artificially created being. She doesn't seem to care. He asks her if she remembers the name "Leona Eltridge". She replies that she doesn't. Adam asks her if she remembers the name "Nicholas Blair". Again, Eve says she doesn't. Adam, convinced that Stokes' theory must be wrong, mutters, "You are not what they say you are". Eve hears this and asks what it means, but Adam just says, "Nothing" and leaves the room, letting Stokes and Barnabas in. Adam introduces them to Eve. Eve asks, "Now I know their names. But what is mine?" Adam tells her she's named Eve. He leaves. Stokes starts to question Eve. He remarks that her use of English seems to indicate that it's not her first language, that he would guess that French was. Eve replies, "I have never heard of 'French'". Stokes asks her if the words, "guillotine" and "Marie Antoinette" mean anything to her. Eve replies that "Marie Antoinette" is a pretty name, but aside from that, neither it nor the word "guillotine" mean anything to her. Asked about her past, Eve claims to remember nothing. Stokes asks her about her strange statement that she was from another place and time, but Eve replies that she doesn't know why she said that. Eve asks if she's going to be staying here at the Old House. Barnabas replies, "We don't know yet". Eve becomes angry and says, "I'm used to having my questions answered!". Stokes asks what the means by that. Eve once again says she doesn't know. Barnabas and Stokes, unable to learn much from Eve, give up and leave.

Down in the living room, Adam is with Julia. He tells her he wants to take Eve and go away as planned NOW, regardless of Stokes' theory. Barnabas and Stokes come down into the room and tell Adam he must not leave with his new mate just yet, that nothing she told them disproved Stokes' theory. Adam is angry and argues with them. Stokes again asks Adam where he got Leona Eltridge from. Adam lies that she came to him, that she told him she was Lang's friend. Barnabas tells Adam he cannot take Eve away with him yet, that Julia has to examine her for a few days. Julia agrees, saying everything happened differently from the first experiment, and she has to observe Eve for a few days. Adam accuses them of not being completely truthful to him, saying, "There's another reason you want her to stay. You want to see if Professor Stokes is right or not". Stokes admits this is true. Adam says, "What will she think when she sees she's being watched?" Stokes replies, "If she is innocent, she will think nothing. But if she is Danielle Roget.." At the exact moment Stokes says the name "Danielle Roget", the front doors blow open and the chandelier begins to shake. Stokes announces that he can feel the presence of a spirit in the room and asks the spirit what it wants. The presence does not speak, but indicates its desire by opening the cellar door, indicating that it wants everyone to go down into the cellar. They go down and find that the body of Leona Eltridge is gone. Julia notes, "That's impossible! Someone's been in the drawing room upstairs the whole time since the end of the experiment! No one could have come down here and taken the body without being seen!" Stokes replies, "When the occult is involved, nothing is impossible!" Everyone suddenly notices that Adam is not with them in the lab. They rush up to Josette's room. It is empty. Eve is gone... Barnabas exclaims, "We must get her back!" Stokes says, "I know one place they could be".

A strange life or death experiment has been completed successfully, and the long night of danger for those who live at Collinwood is over. But at least one man believes that the success of the experiment must now be reversed. For he believes that the female creature brought to life in the Old House is evil incarnate.

Stokes goes to Collinwood and goes to Adam's room to see if Adam is there. He finds that he isn't, so he searches Adam's room for clues as to where he might have gone. While Stokes is searching, David Collins comes in and finds him there. Stokes lies to David that Carolyn asked him to come here to look at some old books. David shocks Stokes by saying, "Oh. I thought you were looking for Adam". Stokes, shocked, asks, "You know Adam?" David replies, "Yes. We were good friends". Stokes asks, "Were?". David replies, "Yes. He went away last night and said he was never coming back here". Stokes asks David how long he's known about Adam. David replies that he found out about Adam a long time ago, that Carolyn had told him not to tell anyone, that he hasn't, and has in fact been bringing Adam books periodically. He tells Stokes that when he had brought some books to Adam last night, Adam had told him he'd be leaving forever. Stokes asks David if Adam had told him where he'd be going. David replies that he doesn't remember, that Adam had talked to him about a lot of things, that the only thing he can remember for certain is that Adam had told him that he'd be leaving with a new friend to start a new life somewhere else. Carolyn comes into the room and tells David to leave. David exits the room, but does not leave. Instead, he eavesdrops through the door. Inside the room, Carolyn asks Stokes why he's there. Stokes replies that he's looking for Adam. Carolyn tells him that Adam has left, that she doesn't know where he went. Hearing the urgency in Stokes' voice, Carolyn asks if Adam is in any danger. Stokes replies, "He may be". Outside the door, David hears this and rushes off.

David goes to the cemetery to look for Adam. Inside the secret room in the mausoleum, Willie tries to talk to Maggie, but she refuses to say a word, giving him the silent treatment. Willie begs her to talk to him. Finally, she demands to be let out. Willie tells Maggie he has to go to the old house to get some food. Maggie asks, "Why?". Willie says, "We have to eat". Maggie corrects him, "YOU have to eat". She tells him she'll refuse to eat until he lets her out or dies, whichever comes first. Willie says, "But you HAVE to eat!". Maggie replies, "Eating's one thing you can't force someone to do. You could fill this room with food and gorge yourself to tempt me, but I'm not going to eat!". He ties and gags her, then leaves to get food anyway. Unknown to him, David sees him exiting the mausoleum. When the coast is clear, David goes into the mausoleum and wonders, "I wonder if Willie was in the secret room. Why would he be in the secret room? Maybe there's something in there he doesn't want anyone to see. Maybe something HORRIBLE!" He goes into the secret room and finds Maggie tied up there.

At the old house, Willie, having filled a bag with food, is about to leave, but there's a knock at the door. Willie answers and finds that it's Professor Stokes. Stokes asks to see Barnabas and Julia, but Willie tells him that they're not there. Stokes asks Willie why he seems so nervous and asks if anything's wrong. Willie denies that there is, saying he's only in a hurry because he has something to do. As they're talking, the front door opens by itself again. Willie says, "Must be the wind", but Stokes points out, "There's no wind. Look at the trees outside, They're not moving". The curtains start moving. Willie, surprised, asks, "How can the curtains be moving? The window's closed!". The chandelier starts moving. Stokes tells Willie about the spirit that came earlier, and tells Willie it must be the same spirit. Stokes remarks, "It must be trying to tells us something, but what?". Willie panics, shouts, "You figure it out! I'm leaving!" and runs out the door. Stokes remarks, "Fascinating! Utterly fascinating!".

Willie goes back to the Collins mausoleum and is surprised to find David in there sitting on one of the sarcophagi. Willie asks David what he's doing there. David replies that he's searching for a friend. Willie asks who this friend is. David replies, "You wouldn't know him". Willie mutters, "Him...", relieved that the masculine pronoun must mean David isn't looking for Maggie. David continues, "Anyway, I didn't find him. I DID find someone else, though. I know why you're here. I saw her! Maggie Evans!" Willie exclaims, "You SAW her?!" David continues, "She told me a lot of things I didn't understand. She kept screaming for me to untie her." Willie screams, "UNTIE HER?!?!?!?" and opens the door to the secret room. Maggie is gone... Willie moans, "You shouldn't have done that, David..."

Darkness has just descended over Collinwood. Night once again shrouds the walls of the great house, as it shrouds the walls of the old house on the great estate. There is danger on this night, danger for Barnabas Collins. For on this night he may be exposed and destroyed.

Willie goes to the old house and tells Barnabas that Maggie has escaped. They go out to try to find her.

In the woods, Maggie ponders going to Collinwood, but decides that that wouldn't be such a good idea since Barnabas might be there and decides to head for town instead.

While searching the woods, Barnabas asks Willie how Maggie escaped. Willie tells Barnabas that David had found her and released her. Barnabas doesn't believe this and accuses Willie of taken pity on Maggie and releasing her himself. Willie vehemently denies this. Barnabas, still disbelieving Willie, asks how David could have known about the secret room and how to open the secret door. Willie tells Barnabas that David does know how to get into the secret room, reminding Barnabas of the time David locked himself in there.

Still headed for town, Maggie thinks to herself that she can't go the the sheriff because he'd never believe her fantastic story and decides to go to Joe Haskell instead.

Meanwhile, Joe is in his room. Angelique is summoning him, but he is trying hard to resist her. He is successful and does not go to her, so Angelique comes to him instead, magically appearing in his room. Joe tells Angelique that it's not a good idea for her to be here because someone might see them together. He moans about what she's done to his life, how she's caused him to lose his job, Maggie, etc. He moans, "I wish I'd never gone to Blair's house!". Angelique says, "You wish you'd never met me, but you have met me, and nothing can change that now!" In the woods, Barnabas and Willie find one of Maggie's slippers but not Maggie.

At Joe's apartment, Angelique tells Joe never to resist her summons again. She then bares her fangs and prepares to bite him when suddenly there is a bloodcurdling scream. Both Angelique and Joe turn towards the door and see Maggie standing there. Maggie has seen them. She faints. Joe puts Maggie in bed and wails, "She's seen us! She's seen us! I told you you shouldn't have come here! What are we going to do?" Angelique tells Joe not to worry, assuring him that she'll see to it that the situation is rectified and vanishes into thin air. Maggie regains consciousness and asks Joe, "Who was that woman?" Joe tells Maggie that he'd like to explain, but he can't. Maggie replies, "I DO understand". Joe asks, "How could you?" Maggie replies, "Because I've been attacked the same way! We've got to get out of town, Joe! We've got to get into your car and go as far away as possible!" There's a knock at the door. Maggie begs Joe not to answer it, saying, "I know something terrible will happen if you do!". Joe replies, "I'm sorry, but I must open it. I can't resist". Joe opens the door while Maggie cowers in terror in a corner.

Barnabas and Willie, not having found Maggie, return to the old house. Willie asks Barnabas what he plans to do. Barnabas replies that he's going to wait for the sheriff to come to the old house and when he does, he's going to tell him that Maggie Evans is insane. Willie points out that this will never work, that Maggie will show the sheriff the secret room, and that she has David as a witness that they were keeping her captive. Barnabas replies, "If it doesn't work, it doesn't work. There's nothing else we can do". There's a knock at the door. It's Joe. He tells Barnabas, "I've come to deliver a message from Maggie. She'd like to see you. She'd like you to drop by at her house whenever it's convenient for you". After Joe leaves, Willie asks Barnabas, "Why didn't she go to the police? Why does she want to see you at her house?" Barnabas replies, "I don't know, but I've got to find out". They leave to go to the Evan's cottage. From the shadows, Joe, who has not left but is spying on the old house, watches them leave.

At the Evan's cottage, Maggie is looking at some sketches. Barnabas and Willie come, expecting the worst. They are stunned to find that the only reason Maggie asked Barnabas to come was to ask him if he'd like to have some preliminary sketches her father had drawn of him when Barnabas commissioned him to paint his portrait. She then says to Willie, "You needn't have come. I only asked for Barnabas. But I'm glad you came. I haven't seen you in such a long time." Willie says, "How long has it been since I last saw you? I don't remember". Maggie replies, "Oh, about three, four weeks". Willie is shocked.

Willie and Barnabas leave. Outside the Evan's cottage, Willie, extremely puzzled, asks Barnabas what could have happened. Barnabas replies that someone must have gotten to Maggie and erased her memory. Willie asks, "Julia?", but Barnabas replies, "No, she's already tried and failed". He tells Willie, "Someone's been helping me, first with Carolyn, and now with Maggie. It could only be Nicholas Blair. He's the only person who'd be capable of doing it." Willie asks, "Why would Nicholas Blair want to help you?". Barnabas replies, "I don't know, but it must be all part of some diabolical plan! What could it be? What could it be?".

On this night a horrible memory has been mysteriously erased from a young woman's mind and Barnabas Collins no longer lives with the threat of having the past exposed. But the time of terror at the Old House is not yet over. For the present and the future contain greater dangers than were ever known in the past.

Barnabas tells Julia about Maggie's escape and loss of memory. He tells her he suspects Blair is responsible for erasing it because Blair is the only person capable of doing it.

Meanwhile, Adam is staying at Blair's house, sitting on a couch. Blair notes that Adam seems unhappy in spite of the experiment's success and asks why. Adam replies that he is depressed because Leona Eltridge died. Blair tells Adam that Leona Eltridge had a terminal illness and didn't have long to live anyway. Adam tells Blair that Stokes had said Eve was an evil reincarnation. Blair once again tells Adam not to believe anything Stokes says because Stokes is in league with Barnabas and is lying to him. Adam tells Blair there's something else worrying him, and tells him about the spirit coming into the old house after the experiment. Blair tells Adam not to concern himself with that, that his only concern now is to be Eve's loving mate. Eve, listening from behind a door, gets a very angry expression on her face.

Later, Adam is alone with Eve. He tries to tell her that he loves her, but Eve, speaking to him very coldly, replies that it's too early to speak of love, that they've only met one another and hardly know each other. Adam tells her she was created for him. Eve complains that she doesn't like him thinking of her as property. Adam apologizes, telling her he didn't mean it that way. He tries to stroke her hair, but she angrily tells him she needs time to be alone and to think and orders him to leave. After Adam leaves, Eve grabs a letter opener and angrily plunges it into a table. Blair comes in and asks Eve what's the matter. Eve replies that she hates Adam, that Adam is ugly, boring and stupid, but that she finds him, Blair, to the the exact opposite and is attracted to him. She suggests that they send Adam away so they can be together. Blair points out, "But he would just come back. We would have to kill him". Eve tells him she thinks that would be a good idea. Blair tells Eve he likes her attitude, that she's every bit as evil as he had anticipated, but tells her that she was created as a mate for Adam and will spend the rest of her life with Adam whether she likes it or not. Eve angrily refuses. Blair tells her he likes her spirit, but tells her if she doesn't follow his orders, he will destroy her.

Stoke arrives at the old house and tells Barnabas and Julia that he's checked Adam's old hiding place and Adam isn't hiding there. He then remarks, "I'm still worried about the experiment. If the life-force were indeed Danielle Roget...". But he does not get to finish his sentence. Once again at the mention of the name Danielle Roget, the front door flies open, the spirit again comes into the house and starts to make noises. Stokes asks the spirit to identify itself. Julia exclaims, "Look! The bookshelf!" and points towards the writing desk. Barnabas and Stokes look. The door to the bookshelf above the writing desk opens by itself and a book falls out. The spirit leaves and the disturbances stop. Stokes picks up the book that fell and looks at it. He finds that it's a history of the French Revolution written in 1798 by a "Philippe Goudiet". Stokes says that this must be the spirit who has been trying to reach them and says they must hold a séance to contact him.

They hold a séance. The spirit of Philippe Goudiet appears and, speaking through Barnabas in a thick French accent, tells them that Danielle Roget is his love and was with him in the spirit world but that recently someone - he does not know who - came and took her away from him, that she is now in a house by the sea. Julia exclaims, "Blair's house!" The spirit, continuing to speak through Barnabas, announces that he will go to that house and kill the man who loves his love. The spirit says, "Mon amour! Je viens! (My love! I am coming!"), then departs Barnabas' body. Stokes announces, "Our worst fears have been confirmed. Leona Eltridge is Danielle Roget. Nicholas Blair summoned the spirit of Daniel Roget serve as the life force for some purpose we can only guess at. Whatever it is, we can be sure it's evil". Julia warns, "The spirit of Philippe Cordiet said he was going to the house by the sea to kill the person who loved her. That could only be Adam!".

At Blair's house, Adam is trying to apologize to Eve, saying he was too pushy earlier and will give her more time to get to know him. Nicholas Blair is also in the room with them. Suddenly, Eve gets a terrified expression on her face. The door blows open. Eve screams, "Someone in this house will die! Tonight!" and runs from the room screaming in terror. The chandelier rattles. Adam begins to choke.

Simultaneously at the old house, Barnabas begins to choke. He exclaims, "It's happening! The spirit of Pierre Goudiet is killing Adam!".

The threat of sudden death hangs over the Collins estate once again. A séance held at the Old House this night has unleashed a vengeful spirit, and revealed the whereabouts of a man named Adam, whose life is now in grave danger.

Blair uses his powers to evict the spirit and saves Adam. He tells Adam that the spirit that had been at the old house had come and tried to kill him, but assures him, "I will make sure it never happens again".

Simultaneously at the old house, Barnabas stops choking. Julia theorizes that that Blair must have used his powers to stop the spirit from killing Adam. Barnabas tells Julia that Blair must have some diabolical plan for Adam and Eve and that they must stop him. Julia asks, "How? Neither of us are a match for Blair's powers".

At Collinwood, Carolyn tells Harry Johnson that she suspects that Barnabas might have had something to do with Adam's disappearance, that if this is the case, Adam might be at the Old House right now. She pays Harry to go and investigate.

At the old house, Barnabas and Julia continue to discuss what to do, unaware of the fact that Harry, following Carolyn's orders, is outside the window eavesdropping on them. Barnabas hits on a plan - that whatever Blair's plans are, Eve must be essential to the, otherwise, Blair wouldn't have gone to such trouble to get her created, that therefore, if they destroy Eve, it will probably destroy Blair's plans as well. Barnabas tells Julia that they must find a way to lure Blair and Adam from Blair's house, then go in and kill Eve.

Harry rushes to Blair's house and tells him he has important information about Eve which he'll tell him for $5000 (about $30,000 in 1996 dollars). Blair agrees to pay. Harry tells him that someone plans to kill Eve. Blair gives Harry $100 bill. Harry complains, "Hey! This is only $100! You promised me $5000!". Blair replies, "You didn't tell me who's planning to kill Eve." Harry tells Blair that it's Barnabas who's planning to kill Eve and asks for his money, but Blair reneges and refuses to pay it. Harry threatens to go and tell Carolyn that he, Blair, is harboring Adam. Blair still refuses to pay. Harry angrily announces that he's going to Collinwood to tell Carolyn about Adam, but when he tries to get out the front door, he finds that it's lock. He complains, "Mr. Blair! Your front door is locked!", but receives no reply. He goes back into the living room to find Blair, but finds that Blair is no longer there. He calls for Blair, but receives no answer. He finds that the living room doors have now closed and are locked too. A ghostly hand appears and terrorizes him. Finally, having had his fun, Blair reappears and puts a spell on Harry making him his slave.

Harry, now under Blair's spell, returns to Collinwood and tells Carolyn that Adam is not at the old house, that he waited outside until Barnabas and Julia left then snuck inside and searched the whole house. Carolyn remarks, "There's one other place Adam could be!" and leaves.

At Blair's house, Adam tells Blair that he is depressed because things haven't been going well. He asks Blair when he, Adam, will be able to leave with Eve and go far away as promised. Blair replies that they cannot leave yet because things remain to be done, for example, "These scars on your face have caused you no end of misery. I'm arranging to have a doctor remove them". Adam is overjoyed to hear this. There's a knock at the door. Blair tells Adam to hide in another room. Adam does so. Blair answers the door and lets Carolyn in. Carolyn tells Blair that Adam has disappeared and asks if he knows where Adam is. Blair replies that he doesn't. Carolyn tells him that she's very worried about Adam and asks Blair to call her if he hears from Adam, saying she only wants to know if he's all right. After Carolyn leaves, Adam rushes out of his hiding place, telling Blair that he's got to go and talk to Carolyn, that he doesn't want to worry her, but Blair stops him and tells him they have a much more important problem. He tells Adam that Barnabas is planning to kill Eve. Adam angrily says, "I will kill Barnabas!" and starts for the door, but Blair stops him, telling him there's a better way to stop Barnabas from killing Eve. Adam asks, "What are you planning to do?" Blair replies, "Personally, nothing. Go upstairs and tell Angelique I want to see her immediately!".

On this cold, clear night one can hear the sound of the ocean at the great house of Collinwood, a sound which means peace to some, but rage and fury to others. And in another house, nearer the sea, the emotion is rage. Rage because one of the many plans conceived there is in danger of being stopped by a violent death.

Blair, angry that Barnabas wants to kill Eve and interfere with his plans, stabs the table with a letter opener and thinks to himself how easy it would be for him to kill Barnabas, but cannot because he doesn't know what killing Barnabas will do to Adam. He then thinks to himself, "What I plan to do to Barnabas Collins is almost as delightful as killing him!". Adam comes back downstairs and tells Blair that Angelique is not in the house. He tells Blair that he must go and kill Barnabas, that it's his duty to protect his mate. Blair orders Adam not to go. They have a heated argument about his. Blair tries to tell Adam he need not worry about Eve because his special powers insure that nothing will happen to her. Adam scoffs, "Your special powers cannot even find Angelique!". Blair replies that he can find Angelique, and ask Adam to leave to room to allow him to do so, but Adam insists on seeing his powers, and Blair decides to allow him to stay and watch. Using the magic mirror, Blair sees Angelique in Jeff's Clark's room standing over a sleeping Jeff Clark.

Jeff awakens and sees Angelique standing over him. He tells her that he can no longer help her as the experiment has already been completed and the equipment removed from the old house. She replies that he can still help her. She bares her fangs and prepares to bite him when suddenly she is grabbed from behind. It is Nicholas Blair, who has appeared out of thin air. He orders Angelique to go home, and tells her he will speak to her when he gets home. Angelique leaves. Blair questions Jeff, and learns from Angelique's wanting to supply the life-force and about the aborted attempt. Blair puts Jeff to sleep, then uses his powers to make him forget everything that's happened recently, and removes Angelique's vampire curse from him. Blair leaves normally, through the door. Jeff is awakened by a knock at the door. He answers it. It is Blair. Blair tells Jeff that he just happened to be in the neighborhood and dropped in for a drink. Jeff has forgotten everything that's happened...

Adam is in the living room of the Blair house with Eve. He tells her he is worried about her safety. He grabs her and drags her to a room in the cellar (the room where Blair and Carolyn first summoned Danielle Roget), and tells Eve she will be safe here, but Eve becomes terrified, saying she somehow remembers the room and is fearful of being sent "back". Adam does not understand what she's talking about and locks her in there for her own safety.

When Blair returns home, Adam argues with him about the need to leave with Eve and go away immediately, but Blair tells Adam things will be much easier if he'd just agree to wait a little bit longer, that "Without your scars, you wouldn't have to hide anymore. You could go anywhere you wanted! Isn't that worth waiting for?". Adam agrees to stay just a little longer until Blair can arrange for a doctor to come and remove his scars. A frightened looking Angelique appears at the doorway and tells Blair that it is almost dawn. Blair tells Adam he has to speak to Angelique alone. Adam leaves. Angelique asks Blair what her punishment will be. Blair replies that he's in such a good mood because his plans are going so well that he's decided not to punish her, but will instead give her a treat, something that will make her happy to be a vampire. He tells her he will allow her to attack and enslave the man she most wants to attack and enslave - Barnabas.

A quiet, still night, at the great estate of Collinwood, a whispered wind barely stirs the branches of the trees. But that whisper draws a message to one woman, a message that her death draws nearer, and nearer.

Elizabeth is in the drawing room at Collinwood, looking at a model of the mausoleum she's had designed for herself. Vicki comes into the room and asks, "Would you like to come on a drive with me? It's a beautiful day", but Elizabeth declines, telling Vicki she has something to show her, something she hasn't shown anyone else yet. Elizabeth shows Vicki the model, and asks her to do something for her. She tells Vicki, "If I should die before it's finished, make sure they finish it and put me in it and not just bury me in the ground". Vicki refuses, saying, "No, I'm not going to promise that because you're not going to die". Elizabeth insists that she is. Vicki tries to reassure Elizabeth that she's not going to die anytime soon, that both Julia and the doctors at Windcliff have said she's in perfect health and that all her problems are psychological, but Elizabeth continues to babble, saying, "I will build it by the sea, by the cliffs, and you will be able to hear the bell when it rings, and if you hear it, you will know I'm not dead". Roger, out in the foyer, hears this, comes in and is upset to find that Elizabeth is talking about death again. He sees that Elizabeth is trying to conceal something from him with her body and asks, "What's that?". Elizabeth says, "You'll see it soon anyway", and moves to let Roger see the model. Roger exclaims, "You actually had an architect draw up plans and make this?! Did you tell him about your plans, your fear of being buried alive?!". Elizabeth replies that she did. Roger exclaims, "You know what he thought? He probably thought he was humoring an insane woman! The whole village must be talking about this!". Elizabeth replies that she doesn't care what people think. Roger, becoming even more upset, grabs a statue and, using it as a club, destroys the model. Upset, Elizabeth runs up to her room. Roger talks despairingly to Vicki that he doesn't know what to do about Elizabeth, that she seemed to be getting better and now this. Vicki tells him he shouldn't have wrecked the model and tries to put it back together.

Upstairs in her room, Elizabeth hears a voice calling to her. She asks, "Who is it?" The voice replies, "Don't you recognize your own voice?" It tells her, "You must get ready! It's almost time for you to go to your grave!". Elizabeth screams, "No!", but the voice continues, "Get ready! Get ready!"

Downstairs, Roger despairingly tells Vicki that he does not know what to do about Elizabeth. There is a knock at the front door. Roger answers it and finds that it's Jeff Clark. He asks to see Vicki. Roger tells Jeff to wait at the door, then goes into the drawing room and tells Vicki, "It's Jeff. Should I say you don't want to see him?". Vicki replies, "No, I'll see him".

Upstairs, the voice continues to speak to Elizabeth, "They'll find you in this room, they'll think you're dead!". Elizabeth exclaims, "No! No!". Roger brings Jeff into the drawing room then goes upstairs to let Jeff and Vicki speak in private. Jeff tells Vicki that he wants to make up with her and tries to give her back her engagement ring, saying, "I seem to have an engagement ring that belongs to you". Vicki asks Jeff why he refused Roger's offer, saying, "I just want an explanation! I'll accept ANY explanation: You don't want to work at a cannery, you hate Roger Collins, any explanation! I'll accept it, even if I don't agree with it! I just want some kind of explanation!" Jeff refuses to give her one, saying only, "I did it for you. I can't explain right now, maybe some day I can". Vicki replies, "Then I'll take the ring the day you can" and refuses to take the engagement ring.

Roger goes to Elizabeth's room and finds she's not there. He comes rushing back downstairs into the drawing room exclaiming that Elizabeth is not in her room.

Elizabeth, meanwhile, is wandering through the cemetery. Her own voice continues to talk to her, telling her, "This is where you'll be buried, under the ground, but you will not be dead! This is where you'll be buried! The mausoleum will not be finished in time!". Elizabeth happens upon the grave of Peter Bradford and remembers the time she and Vicki first found it and how happy Vicki was to find that Peter Bradford was a real person and not just a figment of her imagination.

At Collinwood, Jeff agrees to help Roger search for Elizabeth. Vicki tells Roger that she wants to go too, but Roger tells her he wants her to search the house with Mrs. Johnson, that it is possible that Elizabeth is somewhere in the house.

In the woods, Roger tells Jeff to go look in the cemetery while he goes and searches Widow's Hill. Jeff goes to the graveyard and finds Elizabeth at Peter Bradford's grave. Elizabeth, seeing Jeff and thinking he's Peter Bradford, screams, "But you're dead! You're dead! Don't come near me! Don't touch me!" When Jeff does approach her, Elizabeth faints. Jeff picks her up, takes her back to Collinwood and puts her on the couch. Vicki asks, "What happened?" Jeff replies, "I don't know". Vicki asks, "Where did you find her?" Jeff replies, "At the cemetery". Vicki tries to feel Elizabeth's pulse, but cannot find one and exclaims, "She has no pulse! No heartbeat! Jeff, she's dead! She's dead!!!"

For the mistress of Collinwood, this night could prove to be fatal, for she is convinced that Death has summoned her. And soon, one young woman, who waits for her, will be convinced that Elizabeth Stoddard has indeed passed into the world beyond...

Jeff tells Vicki she's wrong and that he can detect a faint breathing. Thinking that Julia's at the old house (where there's no phone), Vicki calls Elizabeth's doctor.

But Julia is not at the old house. She and Barnabas are up in her room at Collinwood discussing Barnabas' plans to kill Eve. Julia shows Barnabas how to use a hypodermic syringe. Julia is frightened and warns Barnabas not to go through with it, saying she thinks Blair may not really be human and may somehow know about his plan to kill Eve, but Barnabas refuses to be frightened. He goes over the plan to Julia: Tomorrow, she and Professor Stokes are to invite Blair to the old house and keep him occupied while he, Barnabas, goes to Blair's house and destroys Eve with a lethal injection. Julia tells Barnabas she'll fill the syringe tomorrow just before they begin. Barnabas asks, "Are you sure it'll look like a natural death?". Julia assures him, "Ten minutes after you administer it, she'll be dead. Two minutes later, all traces of the poison will be gone from her body".

Barnabas and Julia go downstairs to the drawing room and find Vicki and Jeff there with Elizabeth. Vicki tells them what happened, telling Julia, "I couldn't find a heartbeat." Julia examines Elizabeth and says, "You're right. She has no heartbeat". Vicki asks, "Is she dead?" Julia sadly replies, "Yes". But she is quickly proven wrong. Elizabeth awakens, screaming, "No! NO!!" . Julia remarks that Elizabeth must have been in a catatonic state with no detectable pulse or breathing. Elizabeth tells Julia that she could hear her pronouncing her dead, and says it validates her fears of being prematurely buried, saying, "If it had lasted a few days instead of a few minutes, you would have buried me!". Barnabas and Julia take Elizabeth up to her room. Vicki thanks Jeff for finding Elizabeth. Jeff again asks Vicki if they can get back together, but they are interrupted by the arrival of Elizabeth's doctor.

In Julia's room, Barnabas and Julia discuss Elizabeth, and Barnabas notes that Elizabeth's delusions started when Cassandra was at Collinwood. They wonder how Elizabeth's problems can persist even though Cassandra is long gone.

Having taken the doctor up to Elizabeth's room, Vicki comes back down to the drawing room. Jeff again asks her if they can get back together. Vicki replies, "Yes", and they kiss. Barnabas happens to come down the stairs and sees them kissing. Looking very upset, he leaves without saying a word.

Later, Vicki goes to Julia's room and asks Julia if there's any danger of Elizabeth falling into another catatonic trance like the one she was in earlier. Julia replies that it's possible. Vicki tells Julia that she fears that Elizabeth's fears may be justified, that if she falls into another catatonic trance, she might be buried prematurely. Julia tells her not to worry, that it couldn't happen today with modern advanced methods of detecting life. Julia remarks, "I was very surprised to see Jeff Clark here. Does this mean you two are back together?". Vicki tells Julia that she and Jeff have gotten back together. Julia tells Vicki, "I'm very happy for you". Vicki leaves, and Julia prepares for bed. The ornate clock in her room reads 12:00.

At 3:00 in the morning, Julia has a dream in which she hears a series of bloodcurdling screams, then the voice of Barnabas saying, "Julia! Julia! Come to me! I need you!". Julia goes down into the foyer. The voice continues, "Julia! Please help me! Help me! Come to me! In the woods, Julia! Please! Come to me! The woods, Julia! Hurry! Hurry!". Julia goes out into the woods, where she finds Barnabas bloody and injured. Barnabas tells her, "You were right, Julia! It was a mistake! I should never have gone to Blair's house", then dies. Julia awakens, screaming, "Barnabas! Barnabas!".

Last night, a woman at Collinwood had a terrifying dream, in which she witnessed the death of the man who lives in the Old House on the Collins estate. Soon, Barnabas Collins will learn about this strange dream, but it will not prevent him from carrying out a plan, which will lead him to the most terrifying moment of his life.

In the morning, Julia rushes to the old house and tells Barnabas that she is now certain he must not go to Blair's house, that she's certain Blair knows what he's planning to do and has set a trap for him, that he will be killed if he goes there. Barnabas asks her how she could know all this. Julia tells him about her dream. Barnabas dismisses it as only a dream. Julia insists that it was not, that it was a premonition, but Barnabas refuses to listen, saying that the plan is already in motion, that Stokes is on his way to Blair's house to invite Blair to the old house.

Stokes goes to Blair's house. Blair offers Stokes a glass of sherry. Stokes remarks, "Interesting. You hardly know me, yet you know my drink is sherry". Blair explains, "Carolyn talked a lot about you. She mentioned that you were a connoisseur of sherry". Blair pours two sherries, and they drink. Stokes tells Blair that Barnabas is having a little dinner party tonight and has sent him to invite him. Blair remarks, "But I got the impression that Barnabas didn't like me". Stokes assures him that this isn't the case, that Barnabas' expressions often give people the wrong impression, adding, "When I first met him, I thought he didn't like me either, but I was wrong". Blair then notes, "I find it strange that he sent you. Why didn't he just telephone me?" Stokes tells Blair about Barnabas' antiquarian eccentricities, including his refusal to have a telephone installed at the old house. He tells Blair, "We'll be dining by candlelight". Blair remarks that he finds this fascinating, and accepts the invitation. Stokes mentions, "I have antiquarian interests too. In particular, I am interested in old houses. I find yours very interesting. Would you mind showing it to me?" Blair replies, "Not at all! I'll give you the complete tour!"

Stokes returns to the old house and tells Barnabas and Julia that his visit to Blair was successful. Asked, "Are you sure Blair didn't suspect anything?", Stokes replies that he is, that "Blair's an insufferable egotist. He wouldn't believe that 'ordinary' people like us would dare plot against him". He produces a drawing he's made of the first and second floors. Barnabas asks, "What about the third floor?". Stokes replies that Blair had said he only used it for storage and didn't show it to him. He tells Barnabas he knows which room is Eve's, explaining that he knows which one it is because of the strong smell of perfume there, a smell Blair tried to explain away by saying he had had visitors there who had just left. Julia tells Barnabas she is worried that Adam might be with Eve when he sneaks in, but Stokes tells her not to worry about this, that he thinks Eve did not respond to Adam as Blair had hoped, but does not say why he thinks this. Barnabas goes over the plan: Julia is to arrive half an hour late at the dinner party, saying she was delayed because Elizabeth had taken a turn for the worse. She is to tell Barnabas that Elizabeth is asking for him. Barnabas will then leave, supposedly to see Elizabeth, while Julia and Stokes keep Blair entertained. Barnabas will then go to Blair's house to kill Eve. Julia again tries to convince Barnabas not to go, saying that she's sure Blair knows what they're planning and has set a trap. Stokes remarks that Blair couldn't possible know, telling Julia that he thinks she's giving Blair's powers too much credit. But Stokes is wrong! At that very moment, Blair is spying on them with his magic mirror...

Blair comes to the old house as planned. Stokes and Barnabas entertain him with stories about the old house's history. Stokes tells Blair that the house was build in 1767 by Joshua Collins as a gift to his new bride Naomi, and that it was occupied by the Collins family until they moved into the present Collinwood in 1796. Blair asks Stokes how he could know so much about the Collins family history. Stokes explains that he's interested in the Collins family history of the late 18th century because an ancestor of his, a Ben Stokes, had been working for the Collins's as an indentured servant at that time. Barnabas wonders, "Where's Julia? She's usually very prompt". Julia comes from Collinwood and apologizes for being late. She says that Elizabeth has taken a turn for the worse and has asked to see Barnabas. Blair asks what's wrong with Elizabeth. Julia tells him about Elizabeth's mental problems. Barnabas apologizes to Blair about having to be a bad host and leaves.

Barnabas arrives at Blair's house and sneaks in. Meanwhile, at the old house, Blair, evil bastard that he is, tortures Stokes and Julia a bit by suddenly getting up and announcing that he thinks it would be proper if he visited Collinwood too, saying, "Although I never got to know Elizabeth very well, I did become rather good friends with Roger", and says he thinks it would be proper for him to give Roger some sympathy during his time of need, with his sister Elizabeth so sick. Julia, desperate, thinks of a way to stop him, telling him, "When I left, Roger had already retired for the night". Blair remarks, "Oh. Then I guess it'll have to wait till tomorrow" and sits back down, much to Stoke's and Julia's relief.

At Blair's house, Barnabas sneaks into Eve's room and sees what looks like a sleeping form on the bed. He lifts the covers to give Eve the lethal injection, but finds that the form is just pillows, arranged to look like a sleeping form. He hears a woman's voice from behind say, "Hello, Barnabas!". He turns, sees a very familiar blonde woman standing there and exclaims, "ANGELIQUE!!!!!!!!!!"

The great house of Collinwood is silent, and its residents sleep peacefully, unaware of the dangers that exist elsewhere. In a strange, isolated house by the sea, Barnabas Collins is risking his life to destroy an evil woman named Eve. He does not know he is approaching the greatest moment of terror he has ever known.

Barnabas exclaims, "Angelique! It isn't possible!" Angelique replies, "You thought you were rid of me, weren't you? You were wrong!". Barnabas protests, "But Nicholas Blair destroyed you!" but Angelique explains, "But he allowed me to live again. You seem afraid, Barnabas. I like that!" Barnabas says, "Stay away from me!" Angelique asks, "Aren't you curious how Nicholas allowed me to live again? Let me show you! This is what I am! This is what Nicholas made me!". She bares her fangs and bites him. Barnabas screams...

Later, Barnabas regains consciousness and finds Angelique standing over him. He moans, "I never be rid of you! As long as I exist, you will exist to torment me!". Angelique replies, "You're right!". Barnabas moans, "I hate you!". Angelique replies, "Not as much as I hate you! I loved you once, but you would not love me!". Barnabas explains, "I loved Josette". This angers Angelique. She tells Barnabas, "I hate what I am, but I like what I can do to you!" Barnabas gets up and flees, stumbling down the stairs, but when he opens the front door to leave, he finds Angelique standing outside. She orders him into the living room.

At the old house, Julia and Stokes continue to "entertain" Nicholas Blain. Julia looks at the mantel clock and thinks to herself that it's very late, that Barnabas has been away far longer than planned, and becomes worried that something has happened to him. Her worry shows, and Blair asks, "You seem nervous". Julia lies, "It's just that I'm worried about Elizabeth". Blair then tells Julia and Stokes that it's getting late and he's got to leave. Julia and Stokes try desperately to delay him, but to no avail. Stokes tries to keep him by saying, "As I mentioned, I found the architecture of your house very interesting. I thought perhaps we could talk about it tonight", but Blair replies, "No, I'm very tired. Maybe some other time" and leaves. Julia gasps, "If Barnabas is still in the house when Blair gets home, Blair will find him! What are we going to do!" Stokes replies, "Nothing. There's nothing we can do but hope Barnabas is no longer in the house".

At Blair's house, Angelique tells Barnabas that he is hers now. She tells him, "Blair knew everything. This was a trap. I'm disappointed in you, Barnabas. I thought you were more intelligent than that". Barnabas tells Angelique that Julia and Stokes are waiting for him at the old house and begs her to let him leave. She tells him she enjoys hearing him plead, then gives him permission to go, but orders him not to tell Julia and Stokes what's happened to him.

Blair returns home. Angelique tells him that's she's done as instructed and Barnabas is now under her control. Blair remarks, "Good. Are you happy?" Angelique replies, "I've never been happier!" Blair asks, "Are you grateful to me?" Angelique replies, "Very". Blair tells her, "Well, don't be so grateful" and tells her he's not going to be giving her all that she wants, that she is not to see Barnabas at will, that she is only to summon or go to Barnabas when he, Blair, orders her to do so. Angelique agrees to do as ordered. Blair, surprised, remarks, "You're agreeing awfully quickly". Angelique asks, "Don't you trust me?" Blair replies, "No. I know what goes on in that crafty mind of yours". Angelique replies that he needn't worry that she'll disobey him because she's afraid of his powers. Blair points out, "But you've disobeyed me before in spite of my powers". Angelique points out that she's now more afraid of him because she's a vampire and he can destroy her so easily and assures him she'll be obedient. Blair tells her, "You'd better. This will be my only warning".

Barnabas returns to the Old House and tells Julia and Stokes that the plan failed, that he snuck into Eve's room but found that she wasn't there, that he searched the entire house but found nobody there. Julia remarks to Barnabas that he seems to be acting strangely and asks what's wrong. Barnabas lies that he's just tired and nervous from the night's work. Julia and Stokes leave. Outside the old house, Julia tells Stokes that she's worried about Barnabas, that he appeared to be more than just tired. Stokes tells her, "We've both worried enough for tonight. Get a good night's sleep and worry about it tomorrow".

Inside the old house, Barnabas wonders, "I've got to find a way of escaping her, but how?" Outside, dogs howl. Suddenly, the window blows open. Inside the old house, Angelique materializes out of thin air. Defying Blair's orders, she has come to Barnabas. She tells Barnabas, "I know what you were thinking. You'll never find a way to escape me!". Barnabas moans, "Haven't you done enough to me for one night? Can't you leave me alone?" Angelique replies, "I'll never leave you alone until you're completely mine!", and bares her fangs. Barnabas whimpers, "No! Please, no!" Angelique bites him... Barnabas screams pitifully...

The walls of Collinwood are still obscured by darkness, but soon the light of morning will come for this long night is almost over. It has been a night of terror for one man who has been lured to a mysterious House by the sea and underwent a horrifying experience. An experience that will not only change his life, but the lives of others around him. And before this day is over, another man may die a terrifying death.

Blair goes into Adam's room and awakens him to tell him that their plan has worked and Eve is safe. He notices that Adam does not react very happily to the news and asks him what's wrong. Adam replies that he's not feeling well, that he had a terrible nightmare in which someone attacked him and that he's still feeling frightened for some reason. Blair notices that Adam keeps holding one hand to his neck. He lifts the hand to see what's wrong and notices pimple-like things in Adam's neck. Blair asks Adam if Angelique's been in his room, but Adam replies that she hasn't, but seems to respond fearfully to the name "Angelique". Blair tells Adam he knows what happened and assures him it won't happen again.

Downstairs, Angelique is gloating over what she's done to Barnabas and about what she plans to do to him in the future. Blair comes down and tells Angelique about what happened to Adam, and says, "We've forgotten about Lang's message! This must be the connection between Adam and Barnabas Lang talked about!". He tells Angelique that she must therefore leave Barnabas alone from now on. Angelique protests, "But I need him!". Blair tells her, "Use Joe Haskell instead". Angelique exclaims, "You just want me to take care of Joe because you want that girl Maggie Evans all to yourself!" She is furious. Blair tells her, "The sun is about to come? Are you going to go back to your coffin or stay here arguing with me?" Angelique leaves, glaring back angrily at Nicholas as she exits through a door.

At the Blue Whale, Joe Haskell is sitting at the bar, drinking. Maggie comes in and sees him. She starts to turn away but seeing the condition he's in, decides to talk to him. She finds that he hasn't gotten any better, that he's still not working. Joe asks Maggie if she's come to meet Blair. Maggie admits that she has. Joe notes that she's been seeing a lot of Blair lately. Maggie admits that she has, saying that Blair is a kind, considerate man and she enjoys his company. Blair arrives. Maggie says goodbye to Joe and goes to join Blair. Joe looks at Maggie longingly and wishes that he could tell her what's happened to him, that he could tell her his bizarre behavior is not his fault, but knows he can't. Noting that the sun is about to set, he decides to go see Angelique. Blair gives his sympathy to Maggie about Joe, but Maggie replies, "I don't want to think about Joe Haskell. I don't even know any Joe Haskell anymore".

Angelique awakens and walks up to the living room. Adam is there, reading. But when he sees Angelique, he reacts with terror and shrinks from her. Angelique asks Adam if Blair has gone out to see Maggie. Adam replies that he has. By now, he has backed all the way to the other side of the room. Angelique, puzzled, asks, "Are you afraid of me?" Adam replies that he is. Angelique asks, "Why?". Adam replies, "I don't know" and runs from the room in terror. Angelique angrily notes that Blair has everything he wants while denying her what she wants and vows to wreck his plans.

Joe arrives. Angelique tells him "I did not summon you" and orders him to leave, "I don't want to you him anymore." Joe accuses her of having someone else. Angelique tells him that "You're right, that there's someone else I want more." Jealous, Joe sits down in a chair, refusing to budge, saying, "I'll wait here until whoever it is comes, then I'll kill him!". Angelique tells Joe, "If you won't leave, I'll show you something to make you leave!". She then tells him to look into the magic mirror. He does. In it, he sees Maggie and Blair outside the Evan's cottage. Blair tells Maggie he has fallen in love with her and wonders if she could possibly ever love him, that if she couldn't, then perhaps they should stop seeing each other immediately. He asks, "Should we stop seeing each other?". Maggie replies, "No". They embrace and kiss. Seeing this, Joe moans, "I've lost Maggie forever!". He tells Angelique that because of her he's lost everything, Maggie, his job, everything, that all he's got left is her. Angelique cruelly tells him, "You don't even have that! I don't want you anymore!". Joe screams, "You've ruined my life, and you don't even care!". Angelique coldly replies, "Not particularly". Joe exclaims, "EVIL! VICIOUS!", grabs a letter opener from the desk, and raises it to kill Angelique, but Angelique just stands there calmly and says, "You know you can't kill me, Joe". Joe lowers the letter opener and says, "You're right. Maybe it's me I should kill! I hate myself! I hate everything I've become. I don't want to live, I want to die". Angelique, not taking Joe's babbling seriously, turns her back on him and says, "Please leave, Joe, you don't know how much you bore me". She hears Joe scream, "AHHHHHH", turns and is shocked to see that Joe has stabbed himself in the stomach.

Night over Collinwood. A dismal night that promises new disasters, for in a house by the sea, an ageless drama is being acted out. And one man has discovered that both sacred and profane love can leave you completely alone.

Angelique, terrified that Nicholas will come home and find Joe dead there, panics and, not knowing what else to do, telepathically summons Barnabas. When he comes, Angelique shows him Joe, explaining that Joe stabbed himself. Barnabas asks why Joe would do such a thing, but Angelique refuses to answer. Barnabas then notices the bite marks on Joe's neck. Angelique orders Barnabas to take Joe deep into the woods and leave him there. Barnabas protests, "But he's dying!" Angelique replies, "Good! If he dies, you won't have to kill him!", and orders Barnabas to kill Joe if he's not dead by the time he's brought him into the woods.

Barnabas takes Joe and leaves, but disobeying Angelique, he takes him to the old house instead of into the woods. Julia examines Joe and tells Barnabas she wants to take him to the hospital, but Barnabas asks her not to, saying he would prefer to avoid police involvement. Joe keeps muttering, "I want to die!", but also keeps saying, "Why doesn't she come? Where is she?". Julia tells Barnabas she thinks Joe is talking about Maggie and tells Barnabas that it might be a good idea to get her. Barnabas asks, "Why?" Julia replies, "There is such a thing as will to live, you know. It's more than just a romantic idea. Seeing Maggie might help Joe." Barnabas points out, "But Joe and Maggie have broken up". Julia replies, "Maybe he still wants her. Sometimes people attempt to commit suicide to try to get what they want". Julia cuts the sleeve off Joe's sweater to get a better look at his wound and happens to see the vampire fang marks on his neck and realizes that Joe must be the victim of a vampire. Barnabas feigns surprise and shock. Julia, reasoning that the vampire who bit Joe must be the vampire they've been searching for, the same vampire that attacked Tom Jennings, tells Barnabas that this is their chance to catch it, that if they keep Joe at the Old House, the vampire might come for him, at which time they'll be able to trap and destroy it. Barnabas leaves to fetch Maggie. Joe continues to moan, "Where is she?" Julia seems to get an idea...

Barnabas gets Maggie and brings her to the old house. Maggie keeps blaming herself for what happened to Joe, saying she should have done something to help before Joe got into such a bad state. Julia takes her upstairs to the room Joe has been moved and leaves her alone there. Maggie asks Joe what caused him to do this, but Joe does not answer. Finally, she asks, "Was it her, that girl?" (Apparently she has some memory of seeing Angelique). Joe replies, "Yes".

After Maggie leaves, Julia tells Barnabas that they must prepare some silver bullets in case the vampire come for Joe, adding, "She might come at any time". Barnabas, surprised, asks, "She?". Julia tells Barnabas that she suspects that the vampire is a woman. Barnabas asks, "How do you know?" Julia replies, "Just intuition. I even think I know who it is. Cassandra". Barnabas protests, "But I was with Cassandra when she died. She didn't die of a vampire bite". He points out, "You know, I AM something of an expert on the subject". Julia admits she must be wrong and apologizes for jumping to conclusions.

Later, Barnabas goes upstairs and sees Joe. He lies, "I found you in the woods nearby". Joe replies, "You didn't find me in the woods. You found me at HER house, Angelique's!" Barnabas whispers, "You must never mention that name in this house". Joe starts to think aloud, "Wait a minute. How did you get in? Nicholas would never have let you into that house!" Barnabas lies, "I snuck in", but Joe, suspecting something exclaims, "She must have summoned you!", grabs Barnabas' collar, pulls him closer, sees the bite mark on his throat and shouts, "YOU! YOU MUST BE THE ONE SHE LEFT ME FOR! I'M GOING TO KILL YOU!".

A new day at Collinwood, and a sharp wind blows from the ocean. And in a house, by the sea, one man tries to fight an emotion as strong and relentless as the waves themselves: love. Love for a woman that is denied him.

At Blair's house, Adam writes a letter to Carolyn and gives it to Harry Johnson to deliver to her. Eve comes into the room, looks out the window and remarks, "Ah! I remember days like this! Fall, and the first day of the year after summer has arrived!" Adam is puzzled and asks her how she could remember such a day since there have been no such days since her creation. She replies that she doesn't know. She adds that she also knows that soon, the leaves will fall from the trees, but doesn't know how she knows this either. She tells Adam she plans to disobey Blair and leave the house for awhile. Adam begs her not to, saying he has a surprise for her today.

Harry Johnson delivers the letter to Carolyn. She reads it, then tells Harry, "Go tell Adam the answer is yes. Tell him I'm very happy about it". Harry returns to Blair's house and relays Carolyn's message to Adam and leaves. Adam tells Eve that this is her big surprise, that they're going to Collinwood to visit Carolyn. Eve disdainfully exclaims, "THAT'S your big surprise?!" and laughs hysterically.

At Collinwood, Jeff and Carolyn are in the garden. Jeff is waiting for Vicki and Carolyn is keeping him company. Jeff tells Carolyn he thinks he hears a noise outside the fence, but Carolyn replies that she hears nothing, then tells Jeff that she's going inside, that there's something he has to do. She tells Jeff she'll also see what's taking Vicki so long, then goes inside. Jeff announces loudly, "You know, I think I'll go inside to see what's taking Vicki so long too", but instead of going inside, ducks behind some bushes. Someone comes into the garden through the gate. It's just David. Jeff asks David what's wrong. David replies that he's upset that he, Jeff, is going to marry Vicki and take her away to Boston. Jeff tries to console him, promising to let him visit them in Boston often, saying, "You probably know Boston pretty well, you've been there so many times with Carolyn and your Uncle Roger". But David, still upset, shouts, "I heard THEM talking! I know you're really Peter Bradford! You were in Boston in Revolutionary times! You should know all about historic Boston!" Jeff grabs David and shakes him angrily, saying, "I'm not Peter Bradford!", but then quickly stops and apologizes to the boy and starts to speak to him gently.

Inside, Adam arrives at his old hiding place, where Carolyn is waiting for him. They tell each other how happy they are to see one another again. Carolyn then asks, "Where is she?". Adam brings Eve in. Eve looks around and sneers, "THIS is where they used to keep you?!". Adam tries to tell her he had a good time here. He tells her about the books, card games with Carolyn, etc, but Eve continues to sneer. She walks over to the window and looks out into the garden, where she sees Jeff and David talking. Both Carolyn and Adam warn Eve to get back away from the window as someone might see her, but Eve refuses. Adam goes to Eve and tries to pull her away from the window, but Eve angrily shouts, "Don't touch me! I don't want you to ever touch me again!" and stalks out of the room, saying, "I'll go home by myself! I know the way!".

In the garden, Jeff finally gets David to believe that he's not Peter Bradford and gets him to accept his marriage to Vicki. He tells David he wants him to be the ring-bearer. David seems happy. Jeff looks at his watch and tells David to go up and get Vicki, joking, "Tell her she's just broken the world record for making someone wait". David leaves to get Vicki. Eve walks in through the gate and exclaims, "Peter! Peter Bradford!".

The Great House at Collinwood has known many dark and sinister secrets. Now it is the scene of another one. A secret that had its origin in the late 18th century. A secret that has mysteriously transcended time and space to create a threat to the future of two young people. So deep in the supernatural is this secret, that not even the young man it concerns is aware of it. But there is one who is ... a strange woman who recognizes him as someone she knew in 1795.

Jeff replies, "I'm not Peter Bradford. I'm Jeff Clark", but Eve notes that he responded to the name and insists he's Peter Bradford, that they once knew and loved one another, though she doesn't remember exactly where or when. She tells him she's surprised to see him. He continues to deny he's Peter Bradford, but Eve just says, "You ARE my Peter Bradford, and I've found you at last!"

Inside, Vicki walks into the drawing room and sees Elizabeth there writing some letters. She tells Elizabeth that she's glad to see that she's better. Elizabeth tells Vicki that she'd like her to thank Jeff for what he did. Vicki tells her, "You can do that personally. He's come to take me to a movie". She tells Elizabeth that she and Jeff have gotten back together again, that they plan to be married, though they haven't set a date yet. But Elizabeth is not better... She remarks sadly, "I don't know whether I'll be alive to attend the wedding or not".

Hearing someone coming, Eve hides in the bushes. Vicki comes out into the garden. She notes that Jeff is acting strangely and asks what's wrong. Jeff lies that he's just worried about his new job, which he'll be starting in a few days, that he's already let Roger down once and doesn't want to do so again. Vicki and Jeff leave. Eve comes out from behind the bushes and watches them go. Elizabeth comes out into the garden. She sees Eve, who's dressed in a jet black dress, and panics, screaming, "I know who you are! You're the angel of death! You've come to tell me my time has come!".

Eve returns to Blair's house. She notices that Blair looks very angry and asks, "What's the matter?" Blair angrily replies, "You're doing everything you can to ruin my plans, and you ask, 'What's the matter?'!", telling Eve that Adam had told him what had happened at Collinwood. She divisively remarks, "Poor little Adam, the slightest problem and he goes running to Nicholas". Blair angrily slaps her for daring to talk back to him. Eve, however, is unrepentant and tells Blair that she's not afraid of him, that she knows he can't do anything to her because she's indispensable to his plans. She demands to know who she was before the experiment. Blair asks, "Why do you want to know?". Eve tells Blair, "I saw someone I knew I loved in a previous life, but I couldn't remember when or where. Nicholas, who was I?" Nicholas exclaims, "That's fascinating!", and asks who the man is. Eve refuses to tell him, saying, "I wouldn't want to endanger him. I know you'd harm anyone who could get between Adam and me". Nicholas promises not to harm him, and tells her he'll make a bargain with her, that if she'll tell him who it is, he'll tell her who she was. Eve tells him, "He now calls himself Jeff Clark". Blair remarks, "If he is indeed someone you used to know in the past, this indicates that there are forces at work I don't know about". Eve, now wanting Nicholas to fulfill his part of the bargain, starts to say, "Now I'd like you to tell me...", but Nicholas interrupts, saying, "No, I'd like YOU to tell ME!". He tells Eve, "I'd like you to look at this candle, into this flame...", hypnotizing her and sending her back into the past...

Eve flashes back to a scene in the 1790's. She is standing next to Peter Bradford, who is seated at a writing stand. Eve, in the flashback, looks very nervous and asks, "What are you going to do, Peter?" Peter, rather coldly, replies, "I haven't decided yet". Eve says, "But he would have KILLED you!". Peter remarks, "So you killed him. Simple as that.". Eve remarks, "After four years of the French revolution, the shedding of blood means little to me. I killed Philippe for you!" Peter tells Eve, "I'm going to turn you in to the authorities for killing Philippe! But I'll give you more of a chance than you gave poor Philippe. I'll wait until morning before I go to the authorities to give you a chance to leave Collinsport. Now get out of here! I never want to see you again!".

Eve snaps out of the trance and exclaims, "He IS Peter Bradford, and I love him!! I love him!".

The plans of many people will be changed or threatened by the events of this night, events occurring in a large old house by the ocean, and in the mind of a strange young woman, subjected to the spell of a mysterious man. Placed in a hypnotic trance by the flame, her eyes have looked away throughout a great void and into the past, seeking the true identity there, of a man she has just met in the present. What she learns from this fleeting look through the flame, and a moment in the eighteenth century, may have tragic results at Collinwood.

Eve continues to say she loves Peter Bradford and wants to be with him, but Blair tells her she belongs with Adam. Eve continues to insist she loves Peter Bradford, saying she once loved him enough to kill for him. Blair explains to her that the "Phillipe" she killed was one Philippe Cordiet, her lover who came with her from France. He tells her that after coming to America, she fell in love with Peter Bradford and killed Philippe Cordiet because he wouldn't let her go. Eve remarks that that's probably why she feels so much like killing Adam. Blair orders Eve to pretend to like Adam and be with him. Eve angrily walks out of the room and out of the front door.

Adam, coming down the stairs, sees Eve leave and goes into the living room and asks Blair where Eve is going. Blair lies that Eve has a headache and is just going out for a breath of fresh air. Adam tells Blair, "It's this place that's making her miserable", and demands that they leave immediately. Blair at first says they cannot go and refuses to do so. Adam continues to argue with him, and eventually Blair agrees to let them leave, but tells Adam he has one last arrangement to make before they can leave. He tells Adam it won't be just the three of them leaving, there'll be a fourth. Adam asks who. Blair replies, "Maggie Evans". He tells Adam that as soon as he, Blair, can convince Maggie to go with them, they'll leave Collinsport.

Eve goes to Jeff Clark's apartment. Jeff, surprised, asks, "How did you find me?" Eve replies, "You told me what name you were going by now. It wasn't hard", and tells him she knows he is Peter Bradford. Jeff insists he's not. They argue about this. At one point, Jeff notes that he cannot be Peter Bradford because Peter Bradford died 200 years ago. Eve retorts, "So you've heard of him! You know who Peter Bradford is!" Jeff lies that he read it somewhere. Eve asks who the girl she saw him with last night was. Jeff replies, "Leave Vicki Winters alone!". He tells Eve that he loves Vicki and is going to marry her. Eve replies, "I am the one who loves you! Don't count on marrying Vicki Winters!" and leaves.

Blair goes to the Evan's cottage and proposes marriage to Maggie, saying he's sorry about the abruptness, but he may have to leave Collinsport in a few days, never to return. Maggie tells him she's sorry, but she'll have to reject his offer, that she would have accepted had the circumstances been different, but she can't accept right now because she's worried about Joe Haskell. Blair says, "I thought you broke up with him". Maggie replies, "I have, but I'm worried about him because of what's just happened". She tells Blair about Joe's suicide attempt and her visit to him at the old house. She also tells Blair that he was right, that she learned that there was another girl in Joe's life, that Joe kept asking for "her" in his delirium, but that she, Maggie, didn't know who this mysterious "her" is.

Eve returns to Blair's house. Adam tells Eve that he has good news for her, that Blair has promised that they will leave Collinsport in a few days, and asks, "Aren't you happy?". Eve replies in a very sarcastic tone, "Delighted!" and goes upstairs. Blair returns home and tells Adam it may take a little longer than he expected to leave Collinsport, that Maggie Evans wouldn't agree to go. Adam angrily asks, "How much longer?" Blair replies that he doesn't want to force Maggie to come, that he wants her to come of her own free will. There's a knock at the front door. Blair tells Adam it's Harry Johnson, whom he's summoned to run an errand for him, and asks Adam to leave the room so they can speak in private. After Adam leaves, Blair lets Harry in. He gives him a vial and tells him, "This is poison. At 6:00 tonight, you are to sneak into the old house, go upstairs, and find the room Joe Haskell is in. There, you'll find a tray of medicine. You are to poison his medicine with this". He remarks, "By tomorrow morning, Joe Haskell will be dead!"

The great house of Collinwood is silent now. For most of its residents are sleeping, but one man is awake. He is waiting for the clock to strike. When it does he will leave Collinwood and attempt to commit a murder. Meanwhile, in the old house on the great estate, two frightened people are guarding a dying man, hoping they can save him, unaware of what is happening elsewhere, unaware that this night will probably end with his death.

At the old house, Barnabas and Julia are with Joe in Josette's bedroom. Julia wonders aloud, "Who could have bitten him?". Barnabas tells Julia that she looks very tired and recommends that she go get some rest. Julia agrees to do so, but tells Barnabas he is not to leave Joe alone in the room for any reason in case the vampire comes, and to prevent Joe from leaving should the vampire summon him.

Harry Johnson is at Collinwood, preparing to go to the old house to do as Blair had instructed. He watches the clock nervously, saying, "It's almost time. I'll have to go and do what Nicholas wants me to do. I don't want to, but I have to. I can't disobey him. I don't know why". The clock strikes 6:00. As Harry turns to leave, he hears his mother call his name. He turns and finds her standing there. She accuses of being up to something, saying she's noticed that he's been acting strangely all week. Harry insists that he's not, but his mother tells him, "I know you are! I can always tell when you're lying". Harry replies, "I'm not. I don't have time to argue with you about this. I'm going for a walk", and leaves.

At the old house, Barnabas hears Angelique summoning him telepathically, but resists. Joe too hears Angelique's summons. He mutters "Angelique", jealously exclaims, "You! It's you she's calling!", and tries to get up, but lapses into unconsciousness. Barnabas finds that he can resist Angelique's calls no longer and leaves.

Outside, Harry sees Barnabas leave the old house and mutters, "He's leaving the house, just as Nicholas promised he would". He sneaks inside and finds Julia asleep in a chair in the drawing room. He goes upstairs, finds Joe's room, goes inside, and drops the poisons in Joe's medicine. Julia awakens and goes upstairs. Harry, hearing Julia coming up, hides behind the curtains. Julia comes into the room and finds that Barnabas, contrary to her instructions, has gone.

Barnabas meets Angelique in the woods. She tells him she is very angry with him because she knows he let Joe live instead of killing him as she had instructed. Barnabas replies that he just couldn't do it. Angelique tells him, "You WILL kill Joe Haskell!". She tells him she wants him to do it because she wants him to bear the guilt for all eternity.

At the old house, Julia wonders where Barnabas could have gone. She leaves the room, goes downstairs, opens the front door and calls for him. Harry quietly comes down the stairs, and seeing Julia looking out the front door, sneaks out the back door. Julia hears the back door close. Thinking that it must be Barnabas, she calls out, "Barnabas?", but there's no answer.

In the woods, Angelique, having told Barnabas what he must do, asks him if he's understood her instruction. He replies that he has, but says that he won't do it. To ensure that he does, Angelique bites him.

Harry, on his way through the woods back to Collinwood, finds Barnabas and brings him there. Mrs. Johnson asks the dazed Barnabas "What happened?" Barnabas lies "I was walking through the woods when, suddenly, I felt dizzy and passed out, that the next thing I remember is awakening to find Harry standing over me." Mrs. Johnson tells him "I'll call a doctor", but Barnabas tells her "NO! I'll have Julia check me out.". He leaves to go beck to the old house.

Barnabas goes back to the old house. Julia reprimands him for not following her orders to stay with Joe, then asks him where he's been. Barnabas lies "I heard dogs howling outside. I was certain that someone was outside the house and went to investigate." Julia asks "Why he didn't wake me to watch over Joe while you went to investigate?" Barnabas lies that he didn't think he'd be away for long, and wasn't. Julia tells him "It HAS been a long time, I've been awake for at least an hour." Barnabas replies "I must have lost track of time while searching in the woods." Julia tells him he thinks someone might have snuck into the house while he was gone, but that she's not sure. Barnabas tells Julia "I'll go upstairs to see how Joe is." He asks her if she's given him a dose of medicine while he was out. Julia replies that Joe's already had his dosage for the night. Barnabas tells her to stay downstairs and get some more rest while he goes to check on Joe.

Barnabas goes up into the room Joe's recuperating in. He pours a spoonful of the the poisoned medicine into a spoon and prepares to give it to Joe, thinking to himself, "I know this will kill Joe. Why must I do this? I must do this because it is her command..."

The hour of dawn lingers far out at sea beyond cliffs of Collinwood, as though reluctant to bring the light of day to the land around the ancient house, sensing perhaps that an endless dark is more suited to the evil deeds that could be done this day, when two men trapped by the same unearthly force become tangled in a plot that could mean the destruction of one or the other.

But Barnabas is interrupted by a voice calling, "Barnabas!" He turns and sees that it is Julia, who has decided to follow him up. She asks him why he's giving the medicine to Joe even though she's told him Joe has already had enough medicine for the night. Barnabas manages a confused explanation, saying he's tired and confused and thought it was already morning. Julia takes the bottle of medicine and the spoon, and pours the medicine back into the bottle and leaves, taking the bottle with her, saying, "In case you get confused again" to Barnabas.

Barnabas continues to watch over Joe. Eventually, Julia comes back and asks Barnabas again, "Why were you giving Joe that medicine?". Barnabas replies, "I've already told you. I was tired and confused." Julia says, "I'm afraid I can't accept that explanation completely right now". Barnabas asks, "Why not?" Julia replies, "Because I've made an analysis of the medicine". Barnabas, pretending to be puzzled, asks, "Why? You know what it is. You prescribed it". Julia replies, "Yes, but there's one crucial difference now". Barnabas, continuing to feign puzzlement and ignorance, asks, "What?" Julia replies, "There's now a deadly poison in it. You were trying to kill Joe!" Barnabas replies, "That's ridiculous! I'm the one who saved him in the first place!". Julia asks, "Who else could have done it?". Barnabas reminds her that she had thought someone had snuck into the house while he was gone and she was asleep and suggests it may have been the intruder. Julia agrees that that could have been the case, then thinks a bit and wonders why, if an intruder had poisoned the medicine, he didn't give it to Joe to finish the job. Joe, conscious but feigning sleep, has overheard the conversation and thinks to himself that Barnabas is trying to kill him to have Angelique all to himself.

Maggie comes to the old house to see how Joe is doing. She tells Julia she doesn't want to see him, that she just wants to know how he's doing, but Julia convinces her that it would be best for Joe if she did go up and see him, and asks her to tell her if Joe mentions this mysterious "she" he keeps talking about. Maggie goes upstairs.

When Joe sees Maggie, he tells her she shouldn't be there. She tries to find out who the "other woman" is, but Joe refuses to tell her and orders her to leave. As Maggie is about to go out the door, Joe calls her back and tells her, "If I should die, Barnabas is responsible! He's planning to kill me!". Maggie tells him, "That's ridiculous. He's the one who saved you in the first place". After Maggie leaves, Joe thinks to himself, "Don't worry, Maggie. Barnabas won't kill me. I won't let him. But how can I stop him? There's only one way! I've got to kill him before he can kill me!".

Downstairs, Maggie tells Julia that Joe was delirious and didn't tell her who the "she" was. She thanks Barnabas for saving Joe's life. After Maggie leaves, Julia tells Barnabas that she thinks Maggie still loves Joe. Barnabas agrees. Julia tells Barnabas that she has to go to Collinwood for awhile and asks him to keep an eye on things at the old house. Barnabas asks her why she would leave him alone at the old house with Joe after she had accused him of trying to murder him earlier. Julia replies that she no longer thinks that now and now trusts him. Barnabas tells her, "I'm honored by your new found trust in me". Julia tells him that now it's morning, it isn't necessary for him to stay with Joe, since the vampire is sleeping again. She tells Barnabas it would be better for him to let Joe rest alone, and stay down in the living room.

When Julia gets back to Collinwood, she runs into Mrs. Johnson, who asks her how Barnabas is. Julia asks, "What do you mean?". Mrs. Johnson recounts what happened last night, about Harry finding Barnabas in the woods, etc.

At the old house, Joe, having decided to kill Barnabas before Barnabas can kill him, gets out of bed and looks for something to use as a weapon. He thinks to himself, "I've got to kill him first! I don't have a choice! But how? How am I going to do it? I've got to find something! Anything!" Finding little in the room that can be used as a weapon, he thinks to himself, "There's nothing here! My hands! I'll choke him to death! No. There's no strength in them". He looks around again he finally settles on a section of rope from the curtains. He goes downstairs and finds Barnabas asleep in a chair. He puts the rope around Barnabas' neck and proceeds to strangle him.

(COL 11/DISK 1 #1)

Tape Date: October 24, 1968
Air Date: October 31, 1968 Thursday
Writer: Sam Hall

The great estate of Collinwood has seen many secrets. Secrets which have led to horror, to violence, even to death. And in the Old House on the grounds, another secret is working its spell. For two men bear the mark of the vampire, and one insane with jealousy and suspicion is taking his revenge.

Joe shouts, "You tried to poison me! No one's going to do that to me! No one!" and continues strangling Barnabas with the rope.

Joe is interrupted by Mrs. Johnson, who walks into the room, sees what's going on and screams. She tries to tear Joe away from Barnabas, but is unable to do so. Eventually, Joe, looks at Barnabas and, being no murderer at heart, is shocked at what he's doing, releases Barnabas and runs off. Barnabas doesn't move...

At Collinwood, Roger pulls a bell pull to the left of the fireplace to summon Mrs. Johnson, but she doesn't come. He remarks to Elizabeth that he would have liked Mrs. Johnson to have brought some tea because it's always good to have some soothing tea when you're discussing problems. Elizabeth remarks, "You heard me talking to the contractor on the telephone about my mausoleum, didn't you?" Roger tells her that he's concerned about what people will think when she builds her special tomb, saying, "The kind ones will call you eccentric..." Elizabeth finishes his sentence for him, "And the unkind ones will say I'm mad". Roger asks, "And you don't care?" Elizabeth replies, "I'm more concerned about being buried alive and suffocating to death in a coffin". Roger admits, "I am concerned about our reputation. I admit it. But not for myself, but for David and Carolyn". He tries to convince her to instead secretly modify the existing Collins Family mausoleum at Eagle Hill instead of building a new one, that that way, no one would know what was going on. Elizabeth replies that she doesn't care what people think, but Roger convinces her to come to go the the cemetary with him and take a look at the mausoleum he's talking about, telling her, "If you agree to use the tomb, I'll take over the job and make sure it's modified to your specifications".

Mrs. Johnson manages to revive Barnabas. He tells her she must keep what happened a secret, that she must forget that it ever happened, that she must not tell anyone, not the police, not the Collinses, not even Julia. Mrs. Johnson is greatly puzzled at this strange request.

Joe is wandering around in the woods, wondering where he will go.

Elizabeth and Roger arrive at the cemetary. They look at a headstone that says, "Jonah Collins, died June 15, 1863, Age 23." Elizabeth starts to think she hears the dead trying to talk to her. She tells Roger she has changed her mind and wants to go back to Collinwood, saying, "The dead are here! They're all envious of us because we're alive! Can't you feel them?", but Roger dismisses this as her imagination and insists they look at the mausoleum first. They go into the Collins family mausoleum. They hear a groan coming from inside and find Joe in there, leaning against a wall. Joe collapses.

Mrs. Johnson rushes back to Collinwood, where she finds Harry in the foyer. She tells him, "Everyone around here is crazy! I'm going to call the sheriff!". Not thinking, Harry blurts out, "You've been to the old house?" Mrs. Johnson replies, "Yes. If I hadn't been there, someone could have been killed!" Harry asks, "You saved Joe Haskell?" Suspicious, Mrs. Johnson puts the phone down and asks Harry, "How did you know Joe Haskell was mixed up in all this?". Harry tellls her that it's just that he knew Joe was staying at the old house. Mrs. Johnson asks, "But why would he be staying at the old house? He has his own place to live". Harry replies that Joe is sick. His mother retorts, "Not too sick to try to kill Mr. Barnabas!". She notices that her son, having heard this, seems anxious to leave and accuses him of having something to do with what happened. She accuses him of wanting to leave to tell an accomplice what's happened. They are interrupted by Elizabeth and Roger coming in through the front doors. With them is Joe Haskell. Mrs. Johnson, on seeing Joe, screams to Roger, "How can you bring that madman into this house?!?!?". Roger and Harry take Joe into the drawing room and put him on the couch. Mrs. Johnson continues to scream that Joe is a madman, that he had tried to kill Barnabas earlier. Roger says, "That's ridiculous!", then asks Joe, "Did you try to kill Barnabas?" Joe replies, "I have to kill Barnabas Collins before he kills me!". Roger goes to the telephone and calls the operator, saying, "I want to speak to the police".
