When night falls again over the great house at Collinwood, a full moon will rise in the sky. Knowing this, Quentin Collins has lived through a day of inner torment. In desperation he has called on a gypsy to help him, for he believes that his own death may be the only means of escape from the terrible curse with which he must live.

Trask orders Magda to leave. She does. He then unshackles Quentin and tells him, "I'm taking you to the police so they can see the transformation too". Quentin replies, "That wouldn't be such a good idea. I have the confession you and Evan Handley signed to the murder of your wife Minerva. If you take me to the police, I'll give it to them". Trask points the gun at Quentin's head and demands, "Where is it?", but Quentin refuses to tell him. Trask pistol whips Quentin and knocks him out, then searches the room for the confession, but does not find it. Finally, he looks inside Quentin's coat pocket and finds it there.

Magda is downstairs, not knowing what to do. Angelique walks in through the front door. Magda tells her what happened.

Trask takes Quentin down into the cellar and locks him there. (Why there's a jail cell down in the cellar is not explained). He tells Quentin, "Due to the delay caused by my having to find the confession, there isn't time to take you to the police, so I'm locking you in here. I'll watch the transformation, then get the police so they can watch you transform back in the morning".

Angelique and Magda go up to Quentin's room, but find no one there. Angelique tells Magda to go and get something belonging to Trask. Angelique uses a magic locket to see where Trask and Quentin are. Magda returns with Trask's reading glasses. Angelique tells Magda, "I've found where Trask and Quentin are. They're in the jail cell in the cellar". She then uses the locket and the reading glasses to cast a spell on Trask to causing him to hear her voice in his head giving him orders.

Trask is in the cellar with Quentin. Suddenly, Trask stiffens, going into a trance where he hears Angelique's voice in his head giving him orders. She orders him, "Go up to the drawing room". He obediently goes up to the drawing room and sits down at the desk. Continuing to follow Angelique's orders, he takes out a sheet of paper and writes a note confessing to being the werewolf and saying suicide is the only answer.

Count Petofi comes in through the front door, bearing the finished portrait of Quentin. Hearing Petofi coming, Trasks hides the pistol with which he was going to commit suicide. Petofi goes into the drawing room and realizes what's happening. He rushes out into the foyer. Magda comes out from the stair under the stairs and, seeing Petofi, lets out a gasp of horror and tries to flee, but he grabs her and demands to know where Angelique is. She lies, "I don't know", but Petofi replies, "I know you're lying!", and starts to strangle her. Magda tells him, "She's in Quentin's room!"

Angelique continues to give Trask orders, telling him, "Raise the gun to your head!". He does so. She then tells him, "On the count of three, you will shoot yourself", then starts counting, "One...Two...", but suddenly, Petofi bursts into the room and stops her.

Downstairs, the spell broken, Trask comes out of the trance. He reads the note he has written, horrified at what it says, crumples it up and throws it into the fire.

Magda is down in the cellar. She takes the keys to the cell from the wall and prepares to release Quentin, but Trask comes back down holding the gun and orders her to leave. She does so. Trask, thinking it was Quentin who had put the spell on him, tells him, "Whatever it was you tried to do to me, it didn't work, then looks at his watch and remarks, "In one minute, the moon will rise and I'll see you transform".

The full moon is about to rise over Collinwood, this is the night that Quentin Collins has been dreading, but his most terrible dreams have never been as awful as this moment - for now, with the moon about to rise, Quentin Collins is trapped by hated Gregory Trask, knowing there is no way to keep Trask from seeing him change from man to beast.

Quentin starts to feel the werewolf pains, but suddenly, they stop, and nothing happens. Quentin tells Trask, "You were wrong about me being a werewolf". Trask, certain that he was not wrong, replies, "My watch must be wrong. I go outside to see if the moon is out yet", and goes upstairs. A few minutes later, Trask returns and dejectedly says, "The full moon has already risen. I must have been wrong about you" and lets Quentin out of the cell.

At the Collinsport Inn, Amanda again tells Tim that she wants to leave Collinsport.

Trask goes out into the wood and buries "his" confession to having murdered Minerva.

At Collinwood, Quentin comes back upstairs and runs into Petofi. Quentin remarks, "You don't seem to be very surprised to see me". Petofi replies, "You live in this house. Why should I be surprised to see you here?". Quentin exclaim, "Even on a night with a full moon? What happened tonight? What do you have to do with it?" Petofi coyly replies, "Maybe I had something to do with it, maybe I don't. Perhaps you'll be getting the bill soon..."

At the Inn, Tim manages to convince Amanda to live at Collinwood.

Amanda goes to Collinwood and tells Trask that she has decided to accept his offer and live there. Trask asks who the man who's been stalking her is. She replies, "I'll never tell you. If I did, you might be tempted to confront him, and I'd never forgive myself if you did and he harmed you". Trask tells her, "I'll tell the housekeeper to get a room ready for you" and leaves. While he is gone, Amanda telephones Tim and tells him, "I've changed my mind. I can't go through with it. I can't stand being so close to Trask". Tim starts to argue with her, but Amanda hears someone coming and quickly hangs up. But it is Quentin and not Trask who comes into the room. They make small talk. It is apparent that they have become smitten with one another. After Quentin leaves the room, Amanda telephones Tim again and tells her that she's changed her mind again and asks him to have her luggage sent over to Collinwood. Trask returns and sees Amanda on the phone. He asks her what she's doing. Amanda replies that she's just calling the Collinsport Inn to tell them to send her luggage over.

Quentin is walking back up to his room. He thinks to himself, "I shouldn't have let myself weaken and fall in love with that woman. If this had been an ordinary night with the full moon out, I would have been a werewolf and would have killed her". When he gets to his room, he finds an easel there with a painting on it, the painting covered with a cloth. He reads the nameplate, which is visible on the bottom: "Quentin Collins, 1897". He lifts the cloth covering the painting and is shocked to see that it is a portrait of a werewolf wearing a suit...

David Selby as Quentin Collins

Donna McKechnie as Amanda Harris
Jerry Lacy as Gregory Trask

The turn of the century at the great house at Collinwood, and this night a full moon shines over the estate, and to Quentin's astonishment, he does not turn into the wolf that walks as a man - but he still fears that this is some cruel joke played by the gods. But in his room there awaits a surprise that may or may not explain what has happened.

Quentin barges into Charles Delaware Tate's studio and angrily asks, "Why did you paint a portrait of me with a wolf's head?" Tate replies, "I have no idea what you're talking about". He shows Quentin some preliminary sketches of the portrait he had painted and says, "This is what I painted". All the sketches are of Quentin as a man. Quentin asks, "Is that what the painting looked like when you put it in my room?" Tate replies, "I didn't put it in your room. Petofi did". Quentin tells Tate, "Come with me and take a look at it!"

At Collinwood, Charity Trask walks down the stairs into the foyer. Hearing Quentin's music coming from behind the closed drawing room doors and thinking he's inside, she primps in front of the mirror then goes into the drawing room. But instead of Quentin, she finds Amanda Harris in there. Charity becomes angry and accuses Amanda of trying to steal Quentin from her. She asks Amanda, "What are you doing here, anyway?" Amanda replies, "I live here now". Charity is shocked and asks, "And who's letting you live here?" Amanda replies, "Your father". Charity, shocked, shouts for her father. Gregory Trask comes. Charity asks, "Are you letting her live here?" Trask replies, "I am", and, seeing that Charity obviously doesn't like the idea, adds, "It's none of your business. Go to your room". Charity refuses to do so, so Trask drags her upstairs to her room.

Quentin takes Charles Delaware Tate up to his room and shows him the portrait. Tate is shocked. It is, as Quentin had said, the portrait of a werewolf. Tate, puzzled, tells Quentin, "I have no idea how this happened" and leaves.

Gregory Trask is in the drawing room talking to Amanda. Seeing Charles Delaware Tate coming down the stairs, he excuses himself and goes out into the foyer, closing the drawing room doors behind him. He asks Tate, "What are you doing here?" Tate lies, "I was upstairs looking for you to see about that painting of your daughter you wanted to have done". Trask replies, "It's not a good time for that right now. Charity is not well". He thinks for a moment then tells Tate, "But there is someone I would like a portrait of", and takes him into the drawing room. Tate is shocked to see Amanda standing in there. Trask introduces them to one another and leaves, saying, "I'll leave you two to discuss the arrangements" Tate tells Amanda, "I have the strange feeling that we've met before", and asks, "Do you have the same feeling?" Amanda replies, "It's strange, but Count Petofi also asked me if I had ever met you. At the time, I couldn't be sure if I had ever met a Charles Delaware Tate, but now that I see you, I'm certain that I haven't" Tate asks her about her past, where she was born, etc, but Amanda replies, "I'd prefer not to discuss that. It might seem strange, but it's a subject I'd prefer not to discuss".

Trask goes up to Charity's room. He and Charity have a furious argument about Amanda living at Collinwood. Charity angrily tells Trask, "If she's going to live here, I'm moving out of Collinwood!"

Charles Delaware Tate finally manages to convince Amanda to talk about her past. She tells him, "It's strange, but I can't remember much about my past. The first memory I have is of walking down a street, fully grown. It was March 11, 1895. I remember the date because I found a newspaper with the date on it". This seems to strike a chord with Tate. He tells Amanda, "I've got to check something out", abruptly excuses himself and leaves.

Charity comes down into foyer, packed to leave. Seeing Amanda in the foyer, she says, "You may have won the battle, but you haven't won the war!", then happily tells her, "You'll find your stay at Collinwood a horrible experience!" and storms out the front doors.

Charles Delaware Tate goes back to his studio and searches furiously through his sketches, looking for the first sketch he had ever made of his "ideal woman". He finds it, and sees that it is dated March 11, 1895. He finds this too incredible to believe and convinces himself that it must be a coincidence. He tells himself, "I've got to take my mind off of this. I'll sketch something, anything".

Quentin walks into the drawing room and finds Amanda there. He turns on his music, and they dance. Eventually, they end up kissing. Trask walks into the room and exclaims, "Miss Harris!" Quentin and Amanda quickly separate. Trask angrily orders Quentin to leave. Quentin does so. Trask angrily tells Amanda, "I will help you fight your attraction to unsuitable men. From now on, I will see to it that you and Quentin are never alone in the same room again!"

Charles Delaware Tate finishes his sketch, a still life of some objects he has placed on a table - a potted fern, a bowl of fruit, and some loose fruit lying about on the table. He looks at the sketch, decides, "It doesn't look quite complete", then sketches in a vase from his imagination, and says to himself, "That looks much better". But when he looks up at the table, he finds that the vase he had made up is now actually sitting there. He goes to the table and picks it up. It isn't his imagination. It is real...

Louis Edmonds as Edward Collins
Roger Davis as Charles Delaware Tate

The turn of the century on the great estate of Collinwood, and this night has brought new fear to one man who has a studio near the great house, for he has made a disturbing discovery: that Amanda Harris remembers nothing before March 11, 1895 - the very day that he first sketched her. And now to change his thoughts and calm his anxieties, he makes a new sketch.

Petofi comes to Tate's studio and finds Tate there holding a vase with a strange expression on his face. Petofi remarks, "Nice vase. Where did you get it?" Tate lies, "I don't know where it came from. It came with the studio furnishings". Petofi takes it, examines it, and says, "Odd. No maker's mark". Tate asks Petofi, "Why are you here?" Petofi replies, "I'm expecting a guest here. I wrote a letter to him using your name and address asking him to come here". Tate asks, "Why did you do THAT?". Petofi replies, "I need to talk to this person, but he would not come if he knew it was I who was waiting here for him".

Barnabas and Magda go to Quentin's room. Magda tells Barnabas about the surprising fact that Quentin did not transform into a werewolf the last night of the full moon. She also tells him that she has learned the date of Quentin's death, that Charity, possessed by the spirit of Pansy Faye, had predicted that Quentin would die on September 10 and be found dead in the tower room. Barnabas tells Magda, "I must go to the future to learn from Quentin's ghost what killed him!". He tells her that the rods which he used to travel to the past were found in Quentin's room in 1969 so must be there now. They start searching for them.

Petofi's mystery guest arrives at Tate's studio. It is Edward Collins. Petofi asks Tate to leave so he can talk with Edward in private. Tate does so. But Edward angrily tells Petofi, "I don't want to talk to someone who's cursed my family, who came to me under an assumed name!" Petofi lies, "I have nothing to do with the curse, and I only came to you under an assumed name because the gypsies had something valuable of mine I came to retrieve, and it would have put them on alert had I used my real name". Edward replies, "I don't believe you", but Petofi continues, "I asked you here because I want to join forces with you against a common enemy - Barnabas Collins". Edward pretends not to know what Petofi is talking about and says, "Why should I consider Barnabas Collins an enemy of mine?" Petofi replies, "Because he's a vampire". Edward, shocked, asks, "How did you find out?" Petofi replies, "It's not important how I found out, what's important is that I want to help you hunt him down. Trust me. I could easily have gone to the police with this information, but I did not. Since you did not go to the police yourself, I assumed that you wanted to keep this a family secret. I respect that wish". Edward, impressed with the logic of this, decides to trust Petofi, but when Petofi suggests they go question Magda, Edward declines his offer of help, saying, "I will go to the old house and question her alone. This is something I must do myself". Petofi warns Edward to be careful and gives him a gun loaded with silver bullets to protect himself.

While searching for the I-Ching rods, Magda and Barnabas find Quentin's portrait sitting covered on an armchair. They uncover it and are shocked to see that it is a portrait of a werewolf in a suit. They examine the portrait and find that the nameplate says, "Quentin Collins, 1897" and the portrait is signed "Charles Delaware Tate". Barnabas tells Magda, "I'm certain Tate doesn't know Quentin's secret" and theorizes that Petofi is behind this for some nefarious reason. They continue searching the room and finally find the rods on the top shelf of the armoire. Barnabas tells Magda, "I think it would be best if I used them in the same place I did in 1969, the cellar of the old house".

Barnabas and Magda go to the cellar of the old house. Barnabas tells Magda what will happen when he uses the rods, that his body will remain here while his spirit travels into the future. He tells her that while he does this, she is to go to Collinwood and warn Quentin to leave Collinwood and not return until after September 10. Magda leaves to do so.

Barnabas concentrates on the rods. After a while, his spirit leaves his body. He sees the door and starts going towards it...

On this night the fate of Barnabas Collins's mission to the past hangs in the balance. He's found out when Quentin Collins will die, but not who killed him. And so in the cellar of the old house, he tries once again to try and transcend time and space and return briefly to the present in search of information. Barnabas relies on the mysterious powers of the i-Ching to guide him back to the year 1969. While in the house above, Edward enters to find him and kill him.

Edward goes to the old house to find Magda. Not finding her upstairs, he goes down into the old house, where he finds Barnabas sitting at a table. Meanwhile, Barnabas's spirit gets to the door, and it opens by itself for him. Edward, seeing the rods and realizing that they're some sort of occult paraphernalia, angrily sweeps them off the table onto the floor. The door slams shut on Barnabas' spirit just as he is about to go through.

In 1969, Barnabas' body suddenly comes to life, then gasps and vanishes. Professor tells a stunned Julia, "This can only mean that Barnabas has died in 1897".

In 1897, Barnabas regains consciousness and finds himself locked in a cell in the cellar of the old house. Edward tells Barnabas, "I couldn't bring myself to shoot you, so I have decided to let nature take its course. I will keep you in this cell and let the sunlight destroy you" and leaves. Barnabas looks around and notices that the writing desk in the cell with him is the desk he had Willie move up to the living room when they renovated the old house in 1967. He writes a letter to Julia in which he tells her his plan has failed and summarizes what happened, telling her that he's learned that Quentin is to die in 5 days on September 10, 1897, that he was trying to go to the future using the rods to find out from Quentin's ghost what killed him, but that Edward had learned his secret and locked him in a cell in the cellar of the old house. He hides the letter in a secret compartment in the desk.

In 1969, Amy is playing in the living room of the old house. She plays around the desk, finds the secret compartment and the letter.

Julia, devastated by Barnabas' presumed death, comes upstairs. She sees the letter Amy found. It is addressed to her, Julia Hoffman and is dated September 5, 1897. She reads it and rushes down into the cellar to show it to Professor Stokes. He reads it, then asks Julia, "Do you know something about Barnabas you're not telling me?" Julia asks, "What do you mean?" Stokes replies, "I'm puzzled by a passage in the letter in which Barnabas writes, 'Edward has become an implacable enemy since learning my secret'. What secret is Barnabas talking about?" Julia lies, "I would assume it's the fact that he's from the year 1969". Stokes, not completely convinced, remarks, "But I don't see why that would make Edward an implacable enemy". Julia tells Stokes, "I plan to do what Barnabas had planned to do, learn from Quentin's ghost what killed him, then travel into the past myself to help Barnabas". She tells Stokes, "I'm going to take Amy with me to Collinwood to contact Quentin's ghost. Amy is in no danger. It's David the ghost really wants".

Julia goes upstairs and manages to convince a very reluctant Amy to go to Collinwood with her to contact Quentin by saying, "It's the only way we'll be able to help David". They go to Collinwood. In the foyer, Amy calls for Quentin's ghost to appear. Quentin's music starts playing. Amy, frightened, runs out of the house, leaving Julia alone in the foyer.

Julia calls for Quentin to show himself, but nothing happens. The music stops. Julia wanders through the house shouting, "Quentin! I have something important to discuss with you!" Eventually, she goes into the tower room. There, Beth's ghost appears to her and tells her that Quentin's ghost will not appear to her, only to David. Julia asks why Quentin is so fixated on David. Beth replies that it's because Quentin is convinced that David is a reincarnation of Jamison, someone who had loved him in the past but eventually rejected him. Julia tells Beth, "I can go back into the past and change things, but I'll need to know how Quentin died and who killed him". Beth tells her the story in the following flashback:

Beth learns from Angelique that Quentin is planning to marry Angelique. Devastated by the news, Beth goes to her room, gets a bottle of poison, and prepares to commit suicide by pouring it into a glass of water and drinking it. She is interrupted when Jamison comes running excitedly into the room telling her, "I've finally finished the puzzle you gave me!" Jamison sees the poison and the glass of water Beth had planned to put it in. He realizes that Beth was about to commit suicide and asks why she would want to do so. Beth breaks down in tears and tells him that Quentin is going to marry Angelique instead of her. Jamison leaves, taking the poison with him to prevent Beth from killing herself with it. Beth goes to the bureau, takes a revolver out of a drawer, and looks at it.

Jamison goes to the drawing room and finds Quentin there. He tells Quentin, "I know you're planning to marry Angelique instead of Beth. She almost killed herself because of it!". Quentin is shocked. Jamison announces, "I hate you!" and runs from the room.

Beth leaves her room and goes to the drawing room. Quentin tries to explain his actions to her, but she pulls out the gun and shoots him. Wounded, Quentin runs from the room and starts up the stairs. Beth follows him. They end up in the tower room. There, Beth shoots Quentin two more times, killing him.

After hearing Beth's story, Julia goes back down into the drawing room. There she finds David - up an conscious - with Quentin's ghost. She shouts to David, "Get away from Quentin! He wants you to die!" David screams, "I don't want to die!", and runs to Julia, then collapses. Julia feels his pulse and is relieved to find that he's alive. There is the sound of someone coming in through the front doors, and Quentin's ghost vanishes. It is Stokes who has come. He asks Julia, "What happened?". Julia tells him that Quentin's ghost was here with David. Stokes asks, "Is the boy all right?" Julia replies, "Yes", but then, feeling for David's pulse to make sure, exclaims, "Oh no! He's dead!"

Terror spans time in Collinwood tonight, for in the present David Collins has lost his battle for life, and in the past Barnabas Collins is hopelessly trapped in a cell at the Old House, knowing that there is no help for him in that time. What he does not know is that Julia Hoffman, in 1969, has learned of his predicament, and is trying through I-Ching to get back to 1897 to save him. But the corridors of time are treacherous, and a journey from the present to the past, as Julia Hoffman will learn, is filled with terror.

Julia uses the rods. Her spirit leaves her body. She sees the door and goes through it. Inside, she sees another door with a circular pattern on it. She goes in this door and finds another door, this one with a rectangular pattern on it. She goes in this door and finds herself in a room. Suddenly, she hears a beeping sound and the room starts to swirl around her. She cries to Barnabas for help. Barnabas, in the cell, hears this but cannot identify the voice. Julia loses consciousness and collapses. Just as she collapses, the room stops swirling, and she is outside the front doors of Collinwood.

Inside Collinwood, Edward walks into the drawing room. He asks Charity, "Why are you here?" Charity replies, "Midnight has just passed. It's now September 10. I have to warn Quentin about my vision that he's going to be killed today". Edward, thinking it all a lot of nonsense, tells Charity, "Quentin probably won't be returning home tonight" and asks her to leave, promising to tell Quentin she was here when he returns. She tells Edward, "You can tell him I'll be at the Blue Whale", and goes into the foyer, headed for the front door. She opens the front doors, sees Julia lying there, and shouts, "There's a strange woman out here!" Edward comes rushing out to see. Charity looks at Julia and wonders, "I wonder where she came from", then remarks, "Her clothes are hardly decent!". Edward picks Julia up and is about to take her into Collinwood when Charity suddenly exclaims, "Don't! I can see in her face that she's the one who's going to kill Quentin!", but Edward, continuing to think Charity's psychic powers a lot of nonsense, disregards her warning and takes Julia into the drawing room and places her on the couch. He tells Charity to leave, then closes the drawing room doors. He revives Julia and asks her, "Who are you? Where did you come from?", but Julia, appearing very disoriented, just replies, "Shapes, swirling all around me!"

Quentin comes into the drawing room and finds Edward tending to Julia. Edward tells Quentin, "She was found outside the door. She appears to be in a state of shock. Watch over her while I go and call Dr. Brooks" and leaves the room to do so. (Why not use the phone in the drawing room? Perhaps he has to look up the number in the study) While Edward is gone, Quentin tries to talk to Julia, but she doesn't respond. He goes through her pockets to see if she has any identification and finds the letter. He is puzzled by the fact that the letter appears extremely aged, but has a recent date on it. He reads it and learns three things from it that shock him:

  1. It is from Barnabas.
  2. Barnabas says in the letter that he has been locked in a cell in the cellar of the old house by Edward
  3. He, Quentin is to die today, September 10, 1897.

Quentin hears Edward coming back and quickly pockets the letter. He tells Edward, "I have something important to do" and leaves.

Quentin goes to the cellar of the old house and finds Barnabas locked in a cell, just as the letter had said. Barnabas exclaims, "Hurry and let me out before Edward comes back!". Quentin replies, "Don't worry about Edward. He's occupied with something right now". He gives Barnabas the letter and asks him to explain it. Barnabas, shocked, asks, "Where did you get this?" Quentin replies, "I found it in the possession of a strange woman who was found at Collinwood in a state of shock". Quentin describes the woman. Barnabas recognizes it as Julia and tells Quentin, "It's Julia Hoffman. She's a friend of mine, a woman from my time". Quentin asks, "What does this letter mean when it says I'm going to die today?" Barnabas tells him that Charity had predicted it. Quentin laughs and dismisses the warning, thinking, like Edward, that Charity's supposed powers are a lot of fakery. He lets Barnabas out of the cell. Barnabas tells Quentin, "I'm going to the rectory. You must find a way to bring Julia to me".

At Collinwood, Edward continues to try to talk to Julia, saying, "The doctor found nothing wrong with you", but Julia, still in a state of shock, does not reply. Quentin returns. Edward tells him, "Watch over the woman. I have business to attend to" and leaves.

Edward goes to the cellar of the old house and finds the cell empty.

Quentin takes Julia to a deserted rectory. Barnabas remarks, "She must have something important for me" and tries to talk to Julia, but finds that she's in a state of shock and doesn't reply. Dawn approaching, Barnabas tells Quentin, "I must go now.."

Collinwood, September 10, 1897. Quentin Collins has learned that this is destined to be the date of his death, an event to follow the rejection of someone he loves, Jamison Collins. Throughout the day Quentin has avoided all contact with other human beings. Now darkness has fallen once again, and only six more hours of this day remain. A terrified Quentin Collins has locked himself in his room, prepared to wait for either salvation or death.

Quentin, in spite of the fact that he thinks little of Charity's clairvoyant abilities, has decided to play it safe and stay in his room until September 10th ends, just in case. Unfortunately, Jamison comes to the room and has a talk with Quentin. This talk raises Quentin's spirits so much he decides to forget all the clairvoyant nonsense and leave his room.

What Beth's ghost told Julia happened starts to happen...

But just as Beth is about to shoot Quentin in the drawing room, Count Petofi comes in and stops her. He tells Quentin to go to his room. Quentin leaves. Petofi advises Beth to leave Collinwood.

Petofi goes up to Quentin's room and tells Quentin, "There's a price both for saving your life just now, and for curing you of the werewolf affliction". Quentin is dubious that Petofi had anything to do with curing him of the werewolf affliction. Petofi asks, "Have you seen the portrait I had painted of you?" Quentin replies, "Yes, but it was the portrait of a werewolf, not me". Petofi tells him, "Look at it again". Quentin removes the cloth from the covered portrait. He is shocked to see that it is now a portrait of him, not a werewolf. Petofi tells Quentin, "From now on, it will be the portrait that will turn into a wolf when the moon is full instead of you. Now my price. I want you to learn the secret of time travel from Barnabas"

Collinwood at the turn of the century, and this night one man should be filled with a new zest for living, for he has gotten throughout the day of his death and he is still alive. But midnight presents a new problem for him: can he betray the one person who has tried to help him?

Quentin is in the woods, pondering whether he can betray Barnabas. He concludes that he must if he is to avoid Petofi turning him back into a werewolf.

At the rectory, Julia is lying in a bed. Barnabas is trying to talk to her and snap her out of her state of shock, with no success. Quentin comes walking in. Barnabas tells him, "I'm glad to see you're still alive". The clock reads 1:00 AM. It is now September 11, 1897. Quentin tells Barnabas, "But something DID happen. Beth tried to kill me, but Petofi intervened and saved my life". Barnabas warns Quentin, "Be careful. Petofi never does anything for anyone without an ulterior motive. He must want something from you..."

Julia starts to talk deliriously, mentioning, "Carolyn, Elizabeth and poor Roger". Barnabas realizes that she must be trapped between the past and the future and must be seeing some scene from the future and asks her what she sees. She describes the following scene:

Roger comes through a door on which there is a funeral wreath. Inside the room he walks into David Collins is lying on a table surrounded by flowers and candles. Roger mourns over his son. Suddenly, David opens his eyes, sits up and says, "They're gone! Quentin and Beth are gone!"

Having heard Julia's description of this future event, Quentin asks, "What did she mean when she said Quentin is gone?" Julia snaps out of her state of shock and stares at Quentin. Barnabas tells her, "You're now in the year 1897. That's the real Quentin you're looking at, not his ghost". Julia notes, "He looks just like his ghost except there's no look of evil on his face". Barnabas explains to Quentin about his ghost in the future, and tells him that David's comment that his ghost was no longer there must have meant it disappeared once the past had changed and Petofi had stopped Beth from murdering him. Quentin, puzzled, says, "But 1969 is 72 years away. Even if Beth didn't kill me, I'm certain I'll have died before then and still be a ghost". Barnabas and Julia have no explanation for this. Barnabas tells Quentin, "You must have had a falling out with Jamison as predicted". Quentin admits that this is true. Barnabas tells him that his ghost had an obsession with possessing David, whom he saw as a reincarnation of David, because he never had a chance to reconcile with Jamison due to the fact he was killed, that now he has a chance to patch things up with Jamison, his future obsession with David will never occur. Quentin asks, "And why would Beth's ghost be haunting the future?" Julia explains, "Beth's ghost told me she committed suicide shortly after killing you".

After Quentin leaves, Julia tells Barnabas, "We can leave now that David is saved and our job is done", but Barnabas refuses to do so. He tells her, "We must stay to help Chris Jennings. I'm sure he's a descendant of Quentin Collins from his daughter". He tells her that by removing the curse from Quentin, they will save all his male descendents, including Quentin, and also stop whatever nefarious plan Petofi may have. Julia tells Barnabas about his body disappearing from 1969. Barnabas asks, "When did this happen?" Julia replies, "Just before I found your letter". Barnabas theorizes that it must have happened when Edward upset the rods. Julia tells Barnabas that she's afraid he won't be able to get back to the future now. Barnabas asks Julia to help him to be able to function more efficiently by using her medical knowledge to remove the vampire curse from him again and allow him to move about in the daylight. He gives her an 1897 dress and tells her to go to Evan Handley - whom he tells her practices the occult - and lie that she is a member of the New York Coven and thus get him to help procure the necessary medical supplies.

At Collinwood, Edward goes to Quentin's to complain that he's playing his music too loudly. He finds Quentin drunk and remonstrates him. Quentin replies, "I'm drunk for a good reason. I've developed a conscience and I'm sorry for something I've done".

Julia returns to the rectory, mixes some medicine and injects Barnabas with it. She complains, "I couldn't get all the necessary ingredients and had to make some substitutions, so I'm not sure it'll work". Barnabas tells her he has to go see Quentin. Julia tells him, "You can't. There's a second injection I have to give you. I can't give it to you just yet because there's a waiting period between the two injections. You'll have to wait", but Barnabas replies, "I'll be back for the second injection. It's urgent that I see Quentin now".

Barnabas goes to Quentin and says, "I noticed you were acting very strangely earlier. Is there something going on between you and Petofi you haven't told me about?" Quentin denies that there is. Barnbas is dubious and notes that the portrait has now changed from werewolf to Quentin and tells Quentin, "I'm sure Petofi has something to do with your not turning into a wolf during the last full moon", but Quentin denies it.

Barnabas returns to the rectory. There appears to have been a struggle there. Julia is gone.

Julia is being held prisoner in the cellar of the mill building, having been kidnapped and brought there by Aristede. Petofi tells Julia, "I know all about you, how you were found unconscious in front of Collinwood wearing strange clothing. I know that you are a friend of Barnabas Collins' from the future". He reveals that it was Quentin Collins who told him all this. He tells her, "I kidnapped you for one and only one reason: to learn the secret of time travel you and Barnabas used". Hearing someone coming, he touches her throat with the hand to make her mute and locks her in the other room. Charles Delaware Tate comes down the stairs into the room. Tate wonders to himself, "I wonder if Petofi knows anything about my strange powers to create things by painting them". Apparently not wanting Petofi to know about this power if he doesn't know already, he asks Petofi in cryptic terms, "What exactly did you do to me? When you gave me the talent to paint, did you give me any other powers?" Petofi laughs, "No! Isn't one talent enough?"

At Collinwood, Quentin finds Amanda in the drawing room and warns her against living with Trask. He tells her, "It's not wise to speak about it here", and makes an appointment to meet with her later. Charles Delaware Tate barges in to see Amanda. Quentin leaves. Tate tells Amanda, "I'll tell you why you don't remember anything from before March 10, 1895. I created you by painting you that day". He tells her about the drawing he's been making of her. Amanda replies, "You must be crazy!!!" He tells her, "I'll prove it to you", then recounts what happened when he drew the still life and added the vase, and tells her he'll do the same thing here. Sweeping everything off a small table, he tells her, "I'll sketch the table with a small goblet on it, and a goblet will appear on the empty table top". He quickly sketches a goblet on a tabletop, but nothing appears.

Charles Delaware Tate having left the mill building, Petofi uses the hand to restore Julia's voice. He demands to know the method she and Barnabas used to travel through time. She remains silent, refusing to tell him. Petofi threatens to use the hand to turn her face into something hideous. Julia breaks down and tells him about the rods.

Petofi goes to Quentin and asks for the rods. Quentin tells him, "Barnabas took them. They must still be in the cellar of the old house". Quentin tells Petofi, "I really feel bad about having betrayed a friend like Barnabas. I consider my debt to you paid!", but Petofi replies, "No, you haven't finished paying it yet. In fact, you've hardly begun to pay it..."

Petofi returns to the mill building with the rods. He asks Julia how to use them. She tells him. Sitting in front of the rods, Petofi concentrates and sees the door. The door opens and he goes through. Suddenly, a man holding a scimitar appears in front of him...

Petofi uses his powers and orders the scimitar-armed figure to disappear. It does.

Seeing that Petofi is in a deep trance, Julia tries to run upstairs and escape, but is stopped by Aristede, who brings her back down into the cellar. Seeing Petofi in the trance, he asks, "What's happened to him?" Julia explains.

Petofi now finds himself in a sumptuously furnished room. He hears strange singing in a foreign tongue. Petofi exclaims, "Oh no, it's the Etotsi council, and they've found me!" He tries to flee, but when he opens a door, he sees a giant face of Barnabas staring at him, fangs bared. He closes the door and opens another but finds flames. He closes that door too. Suddenly, he finds that he's lost control of the hand. It grabs his throat and starts to strangle him.

In the cellar, the body of Petofi grabs its own throat and starts to strangle himself. Aristede tries to remove the hand from Petofi's throat. After a great struggle, he finally manages to do so. Petofi collapses.

Beth meets Barnabas in the woods, apparently having been summoned by him. He tells her, "I need your help. I want you to go to the old mill building and see what's happening there. I cannot go there myself as Petofi has powers over me".

Petofi regains consciousness. He angrily tells Julia, "You'd better stop playing games with me! You either lied to me and these rods are not for traveling through time, or they are and you deliberately miss instructed me in their use! I found myself in a room awaiting an Etotsi council. The Etotsi are the most vicious of the gypsy tribes". He continues, "I don't really need a servant. Do you know why I employ Aristede? It's because I abhor all forms of violence. Aristede, on the other hand, revels in violence. He is quite skilled in all forms of torture and violence. He does all the violent work for me. I'll ask you one more time: Tell me the truth!" Julia tells him, "I've already told you the truth. No one has control of where the rods will take you". Not liking this answer, Petofi tells Aristede, "She is yours to do with as you please" and leaves.

Aristede takes Julia into the other room and ties her to a chair. Beth sneaks quietly down the stairs and hears Aristede in the other room telling Julia, "I'm going to kill you!" Aristede comes out and gets a small pistol and a roll of cord from a bureau. From her hiding place around a corner, Beth can see Julia in the other room tied to a chair. After Aristede goes back into the other room and closes the doors, Beth rushes to Barnabas and tells him she saw Aristede holding Julia prisoner in the mill building, but that Petofi wasn't there. She tells him, "You'd better hurry. I heard Aristede say he was going to kill Julia".

At the mill building, Aristede has tied the small pistol to a chair on the opposite side of the table from Julia. Julia is at the side of the table furthest from the door, the chair with the gun on the closest side. The gun is pointed squarely at Julia's chest. Aristede tells Julia, "I have a devilish plan! I know Barnabas is smart enough to know that it was Count Petofi who kidnapped you, and will either come and try to rescue you, or send someone else to do so. I'm setting a trap so that the one who tries to rescue you - hopefully, it will be Barnabas - will be the one who pulls the trigger and kills you". After gagging Julia, he takes on end of a long length of cord and ties it to the trigger of the pistol. He takes the other end and exits the room, closing the door, which opens outward, behind him, then ties the other end to the doorknob outside.

Barnabas comes downstairs and sees Aristede. He tells Aristede, "I know you have Julia down here. Where is she?" Aristede denies that he's holding Julia. Barnabas hears a sound coming from the other room. He tells Aristede, "If Julia isn't here, then you won't mind if I take a look in the other room". Aristede replies, "Go ahead". Barnabas opens the door, causing the cord to tighten and the gun to fire...

Barnabas hears Aristede running up the stairs and screams after him, "You're a dead man, Aristede! I'll get you for this!" He goes to Julia and shakes her. She regains consciousness. Barnbas asks her, "Is there any pain?" Julia replies, "No, none at all". They are both surprised to find that there's no sign of either blood or a bullet wound. Barnabas remarks, "I wonder how bullet could possibly have missed". Julia replies, "It didn't. I felt it hit me". Barnabas unties Julia. When Julia gets up out of the chair, Barnabas points to it and exclaims, "LOOK!" In the back of the chair is a bullet hole...

Petofi goes to Angelique and suggests that they join forces and work together. Angelique refuses.

Back at the mill building, Julia theorizes, "Maybe the bullet went though me without doing any harm because my real body is back in 1969 and this one is somehow a false one without any real substance". Barnabas asks, "Then how can I be harmed, as has been demonstrated?". Julia suggests, "Because in your case, you were here in 1897 so had a body to go transfer to, so your case is different". Barnabas asks, "Why did you feel the bullet and lose consciousness, then?" Julia replies, "It was probably psychological. I felt the bullet because I expected to, then lost consciousness due to fear". Barnabas tells Julia that they need Angelique's help and tells her to get her, telling her where Angelique can be found. Julia is surprised to learn that Angelique is here in the past too.

Petofi returns to the cellar of the mill building and finds Charles Delaware Tate there. Petofi asks, "Where's Aristede?" Tate replies, "I don't know. No one was here when I got here". Petofi looks around and finds the gun and cords in the other room and realizes that Barnabas must have successfully rescued Julia.

Julia goes to Angelique to ask for her help. Angelique is surprised to see Julia in the year 1897.

Petofi shows Charles Delaware Tate the I Ching rods and says, "Before you came under my tutelage, you had many friends who were interested in the occult. What can you tell me about these?" Tate replies, "I only saw them used once. Their use is unpredictable and sometimes dangerous. The one time I saw them used, the woman using them went insane as a result". Petofi decides that Julia must have been telling the truth.

Angelique agrees to help with a plan Julia has apparently told her. Julia asks, "How do you plan to carry out your part?" Angelique replies, "You'll see" and leaves.

Charles Delaware Tate returns to his studio and finds Amanda Harris there looking at one of the pictures he had drawn of his "ideal woman". He asks, "Do you believe me now?" She replies, "Of course not. I just came here to see these pictures. They do indeed look like me, but that's nothing but a coincidence". Tate tells her, "I'll prove it to you, then", and gets a sketchpad and begins to draw. He tells her, "I'm going to create a man by drawing one". She watches him draw. As soon as he is finished, she screams and runs out of the cottage. Standing in the room is the man Tate has just drawn...

There are many people who come to Collinwood to control the lives of others, but this night Charles Delaware Tate has learned that he can do far more than control other people. Incredibly, with nothing more than pencil and paper, he can create them. And as he gazes at the man to whom he gave existence, Charles Tate is filled with nameless terror.

Charles Delaware Tate attempts to destroy his creation by tearing up the picture he drew, but the man does not disappear...

Amanda returns to the Collinsport Inn and tells Tim about the strange incident at the cottage. Tim is very intrigued. He gets a gun and tells Amanda, "We're going to go and investigate this!"

At the Tate Studio, Tate tries to get the man to speak, with no success. There's a knock at the door. Tate quickly puts the man in to a closet and locks the door, then answers the front door, letting Tim and Amanda in. Tim tells Tate, "Amanda has told me what happened in here" and demands to see the man. Tate replies, "That's ridiculous! Perhaps Amanda needs psychiatric help". Suddenly, Amanda exclaims, "LOOK!", and points to a closet door. The doorknob is turning. Tim goes to try to open the door but finds it locked. He pulls out a pistol, points at Tate, and demands to have the key. Tate gives it to him. Tim opens the door with it and lets the man out. Amanda screams, "That's the man! That's the man who was created like I was created!" and collapses in despair on the couch, the realization that she is not a "natural" person having sunk in. Tim asks Tate, "Could you create someone for me?" Tate refuses, saying, "I'm not going to do this anymore". Holding the gun on Tate, Tim says, "In that case, I'll take this one", and leaves, taking the man with him.

Beth, apparently still angry at Quentin for his apparent rejection of her in favor of Angelique, goes to Petofi and tells him, "I want to work for you now". Petofi replies, "Yes, but once you agree to work for me, you'll have to do everything I ask, though some things might be dangerous, and there'll be no backing out". Beth agrees to his conditions.

Charles Delaware Tate proposes to Amanda, but she refuses, saying, "Now that I know what I am, I can neither love anyone nor allow anyone to love me". She tells him, "However, I CAN hate, and I hate you for creating me, and for revealing to me what I am..."

Petofi tells Beth that her first duty will be to help him experiment with the rods. He has her shake them, then arranges them in the middle of the table for her. He tells her, "Concentrate and tell me exactly what you see". Beth describes seeing the door, and going through it. Suddenly, she screams, grabs a letter opener lying on the table, gets up and tries to stab Petofi. He manages to disarm her and demands to know what she saw. She replies, "Shadows!" Petofi asks, "Shadows of people?" Beth replies, "No, just shadows!!".

Tim is with the created man in his room at the Collinsport Inn. He tries to get the man to talk, saying, "I'm sure you can talk, but you're afraid to". Just as he appears about to succeed and the man opens his mouth, Charles Delaware Tate comes bursting into the room holding a pistol and exclaiming that he intends to destroy his creation. A look of horror comes onto the created man's face.

Collinwood at the turn of the century. The Great House seems to lie quiet, its occupants unaware that other people in other places are moving them towards terror. For on this night, in an artist's studio, a man has seen a drawing come alive. Now in his hotel room, Tim Shaw tries desperately to question the man born on Charles Tate's sketchpad, aware that he can be worth a fortune - but he will soon learn that Charles Tate will pay any price to keep his secrets safe.

Charles Delaware shoots and kills the poor man, then becomes distraught over what he's done. Tim gives Tate a drink and finds Tate in a talkative mood and gets him to tell him about, among other things, Petofi.

Petofi goes to Quentin's room and demands that Quentin find out what Barnabas and Julia's plans are. He also demands that Quentin kill Barnabas, thus causing Julia to return to the future, revealing the secret of time travel as she does so. Quentin refuses to kill Barnabas. Petofi remarks, "You seem to have forgotten my powers", shatters a drinking glass and cuts Quentin in the face with a shard. Quentin screams and covers his face with his hands, but Petofi orders, "Take your hands from your face". Quentin does. There no wound, no mark at all. Petofi takes the cover off the portrait. The face in the portrait is bleeding profusely exactly where Petofi had slashed Quentin...

Charles Delaware Tate and Tim Shaw continue to talk.

In the foyer at Collinwood, Petofi, as he is about to leave, notices that the portrait of Barnabas is gone, replaced by a mirror. He asks Quentin, "What happened to the portrait of Barnabas?" Quentin replies, "Edward had it taken down".

Tim goes to Petofi and offers him a business deal, asking Petofi, "Would you like to learn how to create an immense army?" Petofi replies that he would and asks how. Tim tells him about Charles Delaware Tate's newly discovered powers.

(Scene with Barnabas and Quentin I don't remember)

A woman (Kathryn Leigh Scott) comes to the door of Collinwood. She takes a deep breath and thinks to herself, "Well, here I am, at Collinwood", and knocks at the door. Quentin answers. The woman introduces herself as a "Lady Kathryn Hampshire", a friend of Edward's, and asks to see him. Quentin tells her that Edward is away for a few days, but offers to let her stay at Collinwood to wait his return.

Petofi goes to Quentin's room and learns that Quentin didn't managed to learn anything from Barnabas. Petofi is angered.

As Petofi is leaving, Lady Hampshire comes out of the drawing room into the foyer and runs into him. Each seems to know and be surprised to see the other. Petofi remarks, "It's too bad you husband died". Lady Hampshire replies, "You left him little choice between death and public humiliation", then says "It's stuffy in here" and storms out the front doors.

Lady Hampshire gets lost in the woods. Eventually, she runs into Barnabas and asks him for directions back to Collinwood. He gives them to her. As she is walking away, Barnabas thinks to himself, "I've found my Josette again!"

Lady Hampshire makes it back to Collinwood and stares at the new mirror in the foyer. Quentin walks into the foyer. Lady Hampshire says to him in a very different tone of voice, "Where's the portrait of Barnabas?" Quentin, surprised, asks, "You've never been in this house before. How could you know about the portrait of Barnabas that used to hang there?" Lady Hampshire seems to snap out of it and asks, "Barnabas? Who's Barnabas?" Quentin, puzzled, says, "But you just asked about his portrait a few seconds ago". Lady Hampshire replies, "No I didn't. I've never heard of anyone named Barnabas". But as she mentions the name, Barnabas' face flashes through her mind...

Collinwood in the year 1897, a somber, sinister night. A night when a men wrestles with his conscience; whether to kill a friend or submit to being destroyed himself. A night when that friend will deliver himself into this man's hands.

In his room, Quentin agonizes over Petofi's demand that he kill Barnabas. Selfishly thinking about how awful it would be to become a werewolf again, he decides to do so.

Barnabas returns to the rectory and tells Julia, "I've just found Josette's reincarnation. We'll have to put aside our plans for Petofi for awhile". Julia tries to argue against this, but with no success (She seems to be jealous...)

Barnabas goes to Quentin and tells him, "Your new houseguest is the reincarnation of my one true love". Quentin tells Barnabas about the strange incident at the mirror. Barnabas replies, "Of course she knew about the portrait. It was hanging there when she lived in this house 100 years ago as Josette". He tells Quentin to arrange a meeting for him with Lady Hampshire, and to come to him at sunset to tell him about it. Quentin - not wanting to know Barnabas' hiding place because of Petofi's order that he kill Barnabas - tells Barnabas, "I don't want to do that. I'll relay the information to Julia instead", but Barnabas tells him, "No, I don't want Julia to know about this. My hiding place is in the cave below Widow's Hill".

Julia goes to Collinwood and tells Quentin that she's been through Barnabas' obsession with women he thinks are reincarnations of Josette before, and that it always ends badly, and tries to enlist his aid in stopping the current obsession. Quentin tells her he'll try to convince Lady Hampshire to leave Collinsport if possible.

Quentin is in the drawing room, drinking and agonizing over the fact that he has to kill Barnabas. Charity comes into the room and asks, "Why haven't you come to the Blue Whale to see me perform recently?" The conversation eventually turns to the vampire, and Charity remarks, "I'd really like to see it destroyed". Thinking he can perhaps get her to do the dirty work for him, he asks her, "If you knew where he was, do you think you could personally destroy it?" Charity replies, "Yes". She tells him she senses that he knows something and asks him what he knows about the vampire's hiding place. Deciding against his idea, Quentin lies, "Nothing. I was only speaking hypothetically".

Quentin goes to Barnabas' lair, armed with hammer and stake. He opens Barnabas' coffin, places the stake over Barnabas' heart, raises the hammer, and prepares to strike, but then flings the hammer and stake on the ground, unable to go through with it. He closes the coffin and runs off.

Charity - apparently having followed Quentin or read his mind - comes into the cave. She picks up the hammer and stake, opens Barnabas, places the stake over Barnabas heart, and hammers it in...

Morning over Collinwood at the turn of the century - a morning which those who live in the Great House will never forget. For unknown to them, a demented girl has done one thing which will change all of their lives.

Charity goes to the Blue Whale, looking for a drink. Tim Shaw, who's there also, notices that Charity is acting very strangely and asks her, "What's the matter?" She replies, "I've destroyed the vampire! I've killed Barnabas Collins!" Tim, looking dubious of her claim, asks, "How did you manage to find his hiding place when the Collins family and everyone else has failed?" She tells him about following Quentin, seeing him come back out of the cave, finding Quentin's hammer and stake in the cave - Quentin apparently having been unable to go through with it- and staking Barnabas with it. Tim suggests, "Maybe you can get a reward from the Collins's", but Charity replies, "I don't want a reward".

Edward returns to Collinwood and is delighted to find Kitty Hampshire there. He asks her, "How's your husband George?" Kitty replies that he's dead. Edward asks, "How did it happen?" Kitty replies, "I've lied to everyone else that it was a heart attack, but since you and George were such good friends, I'll tell you the truth. It was suicide". She gives Edward a pair of her late husbands cufflinks, saying, "I know how much you always admired them. He would have wanted you to have them"

Edward comes down into the drawing room and finds Tim and Charity there. He asks, "What do you want?" Tim replies, "We have some news that will interest you. Barnabas is dead" Edward is doubtful. Tim tells him, "Come to the cave with me and see for yourself". Edward leaves with Tim.

Kitty comes downstairs into the foyer and meets Charity there. After some small talk, Charity tells Kitty, "Come down to the Blue Whale and see my act if this house ever becomes too much for you. I can sing, dance, and I have some clairvoyant powers. Here. I'll demonstrate by telling you what I know about you". She concentrates and tells Kitty, "I hear music" Kitty replies, "I don't hear anything". Charity hums the music she hears - it's Josette's music. Kitty remarks, "I don't recognize it". Charity continues, "Now I see a music box, a very old music box". Kitty remarks, "I don't own a music box. I never have". Charity warns her, "You will, and you must destroy it or it will cause your death". Kitty is, needless to say, dubious...

In the cave below Widow's Hill, Edward opens the coffin and finds Barnabas staked in there. He tells Tim, "I'm going to have this coffin chained and this cave sealed forever!".

Edward and Tim return to Collinwood. They find Charity in the foyer pestering Kitty about the music box. Charity sees Edward and asks, "Did you see it?" Edward replies, "Yes". Tim takes Charity into the drawing room. Edward apologizes to Kitty about Charity, saying, "She's sick. She needs help".

Edward goes into the drawing room to discuss Barnabas. Edward asks Charity, "Is what Tim told me true? Did you follow Quentin to that cave? Did you find the hammer and stake there with Barnabas unharmed, Quentin apparently having gone there to destroy Barnbas but finding himself unable to do it?" Charity replies, "Yes". Edward wonders, "I wonder why Quentin didn't come to me". He offers to get Charity help, but Charity refuses it, saying, "I like myself the way I am". Tim tells Edward, "I'll keep this quiet. For a price..." Edward asks what the price is. Tim replies, "Oh, not much. Just a favor now and them..."

Upstairs in her room, Kitty is writing a letter to her mother in which she says, "Things are going just as I had planned at Collinwood. Things are looking up..." She goes into suitcase to get a stamp. When she returns to the writing desk, she notices a music box there. She picks it up and recalls Charity's warning about a music box. She lifts the lid of the music box and is shocked to hear that it plays the very tune Charity had hummed...

To curry favor with Petofi, Tim Shaw goes to him and tells him about Barnabas. Petofi nonchalantly says, "My condolences to the family". Tim is surprised by Petofi's lack of reaction and accuses him of having something to do with Barnabas' destruction and already knowing about it. Petofi denies it. Tim tells Petofi that it was Charity who destroyed Barnabas. Petofi, seemingly genuinely surprised at this, says, "I'll have to send her some flowers" and leaves. Tim remarks to Beth, who's also there, "You seem saddened by news of Barnabas' death". Beth denies it.

Petofi goes to the rectory and tells Julia, "Barnabas is dead". He adds, "I had nothing to do with it. Charity Trask did it". He tells her, "You are now alone in an alien world and will soon have to return to your own time. I will be accompanying you..."

At Collinwood, Amanda goes into the drawing room and tells Quentin that maybe it isn't such a good idea for them to be seeing each other behind everyone's back and maybe they should stop. Quentin says no, and, overcome by passion, they kiss. They are interrupted when Petofi comes into the room and compliments Quentin on his choice of women. Petofi tells Quentin he'd like to speak to him in private, and Amanda leaves. Petofi asks Quentin about Amanda. Quentin tells Petofi that he plans to marry her. Petofi asks, "What about your engagement to Angelique?" Quentin replies, "I intend to break it". Petofi remarks, "You like to live dangerously! I compliment you on your courage. I'd like to see Angelique's fury when you tell her". He then congratulates Quentin on his resourcefulness in having Charity Trask kill Barnabas. Quentin replies, "I had nothing to do with that", but Petofi doesn't believe him, thinking Quentin is just trying to ease his conscience. He tells him, "I now have another assignment for you..." Quentin refuses, saying, "I not going to do anything more for you". Petofi "gently" reminds Quentin, "You COULD revert to becoming a werewolf again, and if you do, pretty little Amanda might become one of your victims". Quentin reluctantly agrees to follow orders. Petofi tells Quentin that his next assignment is to watch Julia day and night. After Petofi leaves, Amanda tells Quentin, "I've seen that man before. I find him frightening". Quentin remarks, "You have good reason to". Amanda asks, "What did he want?" Quentin angrily slaps the window frame and replies, "More than I'm willing to give him!", and tells her he plans to leave Collinsport, and asks her to go with him and marry him.

Tim goes to Petofi again. Petofi tells Tim that he knows he came this morning to curry favor with him, but it'll take more than just telling him that Barnabas is dead to do that. He tells him, "There is a way win my favor, however". He tells Tim about the rods and tells him he needs someone to help him experiment with them. Tim appears willing, and Petofi leaves the room to get the rods.

Julia goes to Collinwood and asks Quentin if he's heard about Barnabas. Quentin replies that he has, and suggest that they both leave now to get away from the danger Petofi poses. He tells her, "I'm planning to do just that - leave Collinwood. Perhaps it would be best for you to return to your own time". Julia refuses, saying, "I want to finish Barnbas' work here. Petofi won't harm me. He wants to follow me back into the future".

At the mill building, Petofi places the rods on a table and instructs Tim on their use. Tim concentrates on the rods and sees the door. The door opens, and Tim sees Amanda in the drawing room of Collinwood. Suddenly, a hooded figure comes into the room and starts to strangle her. Amanda manages to pull the hood back, revealing a masked figure. The figures lets Amanda go briefly to remove the mask, then resumes strangling her. It is Quentin...

Collinwood in the year 1897. In this time all those who came to the great house fell under the influence of the evil Count Petofi. On this day, in an abandoned mill not far from the Collins estate, a young man motivated by his own greed submits himself to an experiment, hoping to seek the favor of Count Petofi. He has placed himself in the I-Ching trance, unaware that he will soon see a terrifying moment in the future.

Tim goes to Collinwood and sneaks into Amanda's room. He tells her to leave Collinwood because she's in danger there, that if she stays, Quentin will kill her. She asks, "How do you know this?" He replies, "You wouldn't believe me if I told you. Just do as I say and leave!". She refuses. Noting the striking contrast between her reluctance to leave Collinwood now with her reluctance to come to Collinwood before, he accuses her of having fallen in love with Quentin. She admits that this is true. He tells her, "You shouldn't have. Quentin doesn't know what you are, he doesn't know that you could vanish at any time". She asks, "What do you mean?" Tim replies, "Charles Delaware shot and killed the man he created. After it died, it vanished into nothing..."

Tim Shaw has a vision of Amanda Harris being terrorized by a man in a mask. When she removes his mask, Quentin Collins strangles her. Tim awakens from the trance and runs to Collinwood where he tells Amanda of the danger. She dismisses his concern and tells him that she is in love with Quentin. Tim tells Amanda she has no right to love any man who doesn't know the truth of her creation. He leaves Collinwood in a fury.

Charles Delaware Tate comes and says he wants to talk to Amanda. Quentin tells him, "Amanda's not in the mood to talk right now". Tate is insistent. Amanda comes out of the drawing into the foyer and tells Tate, "Quentin is right. I'm in no mood to talk to you right now" and runs upstairs. Tate tells Quentin about his strange power to create things by drawing them, and tells him Amanda is one of his creations. Quentin does not believe this. Tate reminds Quentin about the portrait he had painted of him, saying, "The curse was transferred from you to it", citing it as proof of his powers, and adds, "Should it ever be destroyed, the werewolf curse will return to you". Quentin does not believe Tate is responsible for removing the curse from him, saying, "That's Petofi's doing".

Tate sneaks upstairs into Amanda's room and tells her, "I've told Quentin about you". After Tate leaves, Amanda takes out a suitcase and begins to pack. Quentin comes in and asks, "Why are you packing?" She replies, "I'm leaving because Tate told me he told you about his creating me". Quentin replies, "Yes he did, but I didn't believe a word of that ridiculous claim". He asks her again to go away with him. She replies that she will. He tells her they will leave on the 6:00 train tomorrow, and suggests that to be safe, she leave Collinwood now and hide at the old rectory till then.

Tate, jealous, sneaks into Quentin's room and steals the portrait, thinking to himself, "If this were destroyed, Quentin would become a werewolf again!"

The great estate of Collinwood at the turn of the century. And this night, one woman, new to the family, must seek out a man she loathes and fears. For she thinks he may have the answer to the mysterious events which have been happening to her.

Kitty goes to the mill building and accuses Petofi of staging what happened at Collinwood, Charity's clairvoyant reading, the music box, everything. She tells him, "I know your methods! They won't work! You won't be able to frighten me away from Collinwood!" She takes out the music box and puts it on a table. Petofi picks it up, plays it, and replies, "I'm not behind any of this. I've never seen this music box before". At first she doesn't believe him, citing a similar ploy he used on a woman at Hampshire Hall, her old home, but Petofi eventually manages to convince her he had nothing to do with the music box, that perhaps it was given to her by a secret admirer at Collinwood, perhaps Quentin. She picks up the music box, and once again ???

Quentin goes to the rectory and asks if Amanda could stay there for one day. He tells Julia, "We're planning to leave Collinsport on the 6:00 train tomorrow." He again suggests to Julia that she leave too and return to her own time. Again, Julia refuses, saying she wants to stay and finish Barnabas' work.

Beth, at the mill building, hears a noise downstairs. She goes to investigate and finds that Aristede has returned.

Kitty shows Quentin the music box and asks him if he gave it to her. He replies that he didn't. She tells him, "I can tell from the look on your face that you recognize it". Quentin replies, "It looks like one I've seen before, but it couldn't be the same one". Kitty asks, "Where did you see it?" Quentin replies, "It was owned by someone who used to live at the old house". Kitty says, "You mean Barnabas Collins, the vampire?", totally shocking Quentin. Quentin asks, "How did you know about that?" Kitty replies, "I overheard you talking about it". He remarks, "It doesn't matter that you know now he's dead". Kitty remarks, "I think I met him the first night I was here".

Petofi returns to the mill building. Seeing Aristede there, he slaps him and remonstrates him for being away for so long. Aristede apologizes, saying he was frightened because of Barnabas' vow to kill him. Petofi adds, "I'm also angry because you bungled your last assignment - to kill Julia". Aristede protests, "But I didn't!". Petofi asks, "Then you saw her die?" Aristede replies, "No, but she must have". He explains what he did, and says, "I saw Barnabas open the door, and I heard the gun fire. The gun was aimed right at her heart. It couldn't have missed!" He takes Petofi into the other room to show him how he had things set up. He sees the bullet hole in the chair Julia had been tied to and exclaims, "LOOK!". Petofi rushes out, realizing that something important occurred.

In the rectory, Julia is preparing an injection (why? Barnabas is dead!). There's a knock on the door, and Julia quickly hides it. She answers the door. Petofi comes in. He remarks, "It's very cold tonight. Would you mind if I poured myself a drink?" Julia replies, "Be my guest". Petofi pours two drinks - poisoning one - and gives the poisoned one to Julia. They drink. Petofi then tells Julia, "You've just drunk enough poison to kill ten women". But nothing happens. Julia tells Petofi, "Nothing can happen to me here because my real body is in 1969. This is just some sort of projection".

Petofi returns to the mill building and tells Beth about Julia. Beth asks, "How was it possible for Barnabas to be destroyed, then?" Petofi compliments her, "You're very perceptive", then explains to her, "Barnabas was born in the 1700's, so had a body to come back to in 1897. When I go to the future, I will have one to go to too". He opens the cabinet and asks her to look into the future for him. She sees - and describes to him - a vision of the drawing room at Collinwood, furnished differently than it is now, lit by "strange" lights. Quentin, dressed in strange clothing, steps into the room, carrying a gun, "different from ours" (an automatic). She remarks that Quentin seems very angry.

After the vision stops, Petofi passes his hand over her face and causes her to forget everything that's just happened.

Evening comes to Collinwood at the turn of the century. A dark storm begins to blow in form the sea, almost as if it were meant as a warning to the two who mean to escape from their tangled lives.

Trask returns to Collinwood and finds that Amanda is missing. He asks Quentin where she is, accusing him of having something to do with her disappearance. Quentin denies this and says he doesn't know where Amanda is.

Charles Delaware Tate gloats over the portrait of Quentin, thinking to himself, "I now have control over Quentin!". But then a worrisome thought crosses his mind - what will Quentin do when he finds the portrait missing?

Nora goes to Quentin's room and finds him packing to leave. She asks, "How long will you be gone?" Quentin replies, "I don't know". He goes to get the portrait, but finds that it's missing. He writes a letter to Amanda telling her that's there's been a delay, that they won't be able to leave on the 6:00 train and asks her to wait at the rectory for him. He seals it and asks Nora to deliver it for him.

Trask catches Nora as she is about to exit Collinwood, and asks her, "Where are you going in this weather? It's rainng". She tells him some sort of lie. They get into an argument and Nora runs out the door.

Quentin goes to Charles Delaware Tate and tells him, "Someone has stolen the portrait. It could only have been one of two people who did it - you or Petofi. I've already gone to see Petofi and he doesn't have it, so it must be you!" Quentin starts to search the studio for the portrait. Tate tries to stop him. A furious fight ensues. Quentin eventually manages to grab a bottle and hits Tate over the head with it, knocking him out, then continues searching the studio.

Trask, who's run out after Nora, finally catches her in the woods. He sees the letter she's carrying and takes it from her.

Amanda is all packed up. There's a knock at the door. It's Trask. He tells her, I know all about her plans to run off with Quentin". He warns her against doing so, saying, "You're giving in to your weakness for the wrong men, just as you did before". Amanda replies, "There was no before! It was all part of a plan!" Trask, knowing from the note that Quentin will not be meeting Amanda at the train station at 6:00 but that Amanda does not know it, not having seen the note, he lies to her, "Quentin is toying with you! When I left Collinwood, I saw him with Angelique laughing about you".

Quentin, unable to find the portrait, leaves Tate's studio and goes to the rectory. He fidns Nora there. She tells him about Trask taking the letter from her. Quentin leaves for the station.

Amanda is waiting on the train platform. The 6:00 train comes...

This night at Collinwood, a man and a woman close the door on their past - many secrets and many enemies have stood between them, but their love has been strong enough to solve and defeat them all, even the most powerful enemy: time itself. For though he has come to the station too late to catch the train that was to take them to their new life, Quentin Collins sees with joy that Amanda Harris has waited for him.

Quentin rushes to the train station. He sees a woman who looks like Amanda standing on the platform and grabs her by the shoulder. But it is not Amanda. Quentin asks, "Has the 6:00 train for New York left yet?" The woman replies, "Yes. That's was the train I got off of".

Petofi goes to Charles Delaware Tate and asks, "Did Quentin find the painting?" At first, Tate feigns ignorance and pretends not to know what Petofi is talking about, but Petofi tells him, "I know it was you who stole the painting", and eventually Tate admits this. He shows Petofi where he's hidden it - right on the easel, facing backwards with another canvas wedged into the back, which visible, so that it looks like it's an empty canvas waiting to be worked on on the easel. Petofi tells Tate that he intends to punish him for stealing the portrait, then remarks, "I understand how it must feel to have your ideal woman run off with another man. I too have an ideal woman". He asks Tate to draw her for him. Not knowing that Petofi knows about his strange power, Tate tries to beg off, saying, "I can't read minds, and I can't tell what your ideal woman looks like just from a description". But Petofi insists that he try, and Tate, seeing no way out, draws, from Petofi's description, a picture of a "raven-haired woman with cat-like eyes". Tate nervously waits for something to happen, but nothing does. Petofi remarks, "It's so beautiful that I am almost persuaded not to punish you". He grasps both of Tate's hands, then takes the picture of the woman and leaves. Tate wonders, "What did he do to me?" and tries to paint something, but finds that he cannot.

Tim returns to Collinwood and shows Quentin a note left by Amanda saying she's leaving, and tells him that she returned the brooch he, Tim, gave her. He asks Quentin about Amanda's whereabouts and finds that he doesn't know where she is either. Quentin asks Tim for information about Amanda's past in New York, saying it might help him find her, but Tim refuses to tell him, so Quentin, a much larger man physically, pushes Tim around and physically intimidates him to force the information out of him. Tim finally tells Quentin that he knows little about Amanda's past in New York, only that she had lived at the Huntington Hotel there. Quentin opens the door and throws Tim out (literally). Angelique, who's just come into the foyer, asks, "Why are you treating Tim so roughly?" Quentin replies, "I'm interested in his plans". Angelique asks, "What plans?" Quentin replies, "They would be of no interest to you". Angelique disagrees, "All your plans are of interest to me. Especially your marriage plans", and asks him to set a date. Quentin replies, "I can't right now. I have to go to Boston on to take care of some business matters. I'll set a date when I return". Angelique asks, "Since when have you become so interested in business?" Quentin replies, "Ever since I saw how much money Tim Shaw made in business. That was what we were arguing about. Tim gave me some business information I believe to be false, and I'm going to Boston to check it out". He then excuses himself, saying he has to go pack, and goes upstairs.

Petofi goes to Tim Shaw and tells him what happened when Tate drew the woman - absolutely nothing. He tells Tim, "You must have been mistaken". Tim tells Petofi about Amanda leaving. Petofi promises to take care of the matter for him.

Petofi goes to Collinwood. He happens to run into Angelique there and maliciously tells her about Quentin and Amanda's plans. Furious, Angelique storms out. When Quentin comes down the stairs into the foyer, all packed and ready to leave, he runs into Petofi. Petofi tells him, "I know where you're going. You may go, with my blessings", then adds, "Distance won't make any difference to my plans regarding you..."

At the trains station, the New York train arrives. Quentin is about to get on it when he hears Angelique's voice behind him say, "You told me you were going to Boston. That's the train for New York". She then tells him, "I know all about you and Amanda, and your plans to go away together", then warns him, "You'd better not get on that train!". Quentin replies, "I'm not frightened by your threats. I don't care what happens to me anymore. I'll get on that train even if you threaten to kill me". Angelique replies, "Don't worry. I would never do anything to harm you". She then pulls out a doll and Amanda's brooch, which she must have gotten from Tim, and tells him, "But if you get on that train, I'll thrust the pin from this brooch into this doll and kill Amanda!"

This night, Quentin Collins has found that he can no longer stay at Collinwood, that he must begin his search for the girl he loves. His journey must begin where hers began, at the Collinsport Train Station. But tonight, he will learn that the journey can end in death.

Quentin remarks, "I guess I have no choice", and doesn't get on the train.

At Collinwood, Kitty goes into the drawing room and asks Edward if he would like to take a walk with her. He replies, "I'd like to, but I can't. I'm waiting for an important phone call".

Kitty goes out on her walk alone. While walking in the woods, she hears the crunching of footsteps nearby and calls out, "Who is it?" Receiving no answer, she becomes frightened and runs back to Collinwood and tells Edward someone was stalking her in the woods. Quentin and Angelique come in through the front doors. Edward remarks, "Oh, you two haven't met yet", but just as he is about to introduce Kitty and Angelique to one another, Kitty looks at Angelique and exclaims, "You're the own who was stalking me! You've always been after me!", grabs Angelique by the throat and starts strangling her. Edward manages to tear Kitty away from Angelique. Kitty snaps out of it and, sounding very confuses, asks, "What happened?" When told, she apologizes for her odd behavior, saying she doesn't know what came over her. Edward takes her upstairs. Quentin and Angelique go into the drawing room. Angelique demands that Quentin set a time for their wedding, demanding that it be sometime this week. Quentin says, "I'll delay it as long as possible!" and tells her it'll be a week from tonight.

Edward and Kitty talk about what happened downstairs. Edward tries to assure Kitty that her odd behavior is nothing more than the effects of stress caused by her husband's death. He gently tells her, "I'll do whatever I can to help you". After Edward leaves, a strange smile appears on Kitty's face...

Edward goes down into the drawing room. Angelique gleefully tells Edward, "Quentin and I have decided to marry in a week!" Edward congratulates them, then asks to speak to Quentin alone. Angelique leaves. Edward, noticing Quentin's coldness to Angelique, tells Quentin, "I notice you've been rather brusque and rude to Angelique", and remonstrates him for the way he's been treating his fiancee. Quentin replies, "That's none of your business". Edward asks, "I know you found Barnabas with the intention of destroying him. Why didn't you?" Quentin replies, "For the same reason you didn't shoot him with silver bullets when you found him and decided instead to let the sun destroy him instead, thus giving him the chance to escape - I couldn't bring myself to do it". Edward remarks, "I'm a fairly good judge of character. I'm not sure I believe your answer. It's not like you". Quentin retorts, "You're probably not as good a judge of character as you think you are, judging by the way you've misjudged Kitty". Edward asks, "What do you mean by that?", but Quentin refuses to tell him, saying, "I'll just let you find out by yourself".

Kitty has a dream in which Angelique appears to her as her servant, calling her, "Mademoiselle". Angelique gives her a nosegay and a book, saying, "He gave these to you so you wouldn't forget him". Kitty replies, "Oh, but I would never forget him!", then takes the gifts. She looks at the book and finds that it's "Poems and Songs by Robert Burns". She notices that there's a bookmark in it and opens it to the marked page. She remarks, "How did you know that was my favorite?", and starts to read it.

Kitty awakens, puzzled by the dream. Then she sees that the nosegay and the book are lying on the table...
