(COL 18/DISK 2 #9)

Tape Date: December 9, 1969
Air Date: January 2, 1970 Friday
Writer: Violet Welles

Worldvision Rerun: 694

A night of the full moon has ended with the morning. And for Paul Stoddard, his hopes for escape have ended, too. Elizabeth has brought him back from the police station, secure that no one believed a word of his accusations. Now with Paul incapable of struggle, the members of Barnabas's cult must deal with still another member of the household, who is dangerous to them.

At Collinwood, David reminds Elizabeth that it's still her duty to take care of Julia and asks her if she has any plans for doing this. Elizabeth replies that she has, that she plans to kill Julia.

Julia is in the drawing room reading a newspaper. She searches for any mention of an attack or killing that looks like it could have been committed by a werewolf, but finds none. She closes the drawing room doors, telephones Olivia and asks her if Grant has returned. Olivia replies that she doesn't know. She tells Julia she'll go check his room and call back.

Outside the drawing room doors, Elizabeth checks a gun she has in a bag and puts it back in the bag. She prepares to go in and kill Julia, but the phone rings and she waits. Julia answers the phone. It is Olivia. She tells Julia that Grant has not returned yet. When Julia hangs up, Elizabeth comes in. They talk for a while. When Julia's back is turned toward her, Elizabeth takes the gun out of the bag and aims it at her. But when she tries to pull the trigger, she finds herself unable to go through with it and puts the gun back into the bag. When Julia turns around, she sees that Elizabeth has a funny expression and asks what's wrong. Elizabeth replies that she's just remembered she has something she has to do and leaves.

Elizabeth tells David that she just couldn't go through with it, that she has so many memories of how Julia helped them she couldn't bring herself to kill her. David tells her that the book will tell them how to overcome this.

Chris comes to Collinwood and tells Julia he can't stand this any longer and will go to Charles Delaware Tate and try to get him to help. Julia tells him about Grant disappearing last night. Chris despairs that if Grant is indeed Quentin and had turned into a werewolf, then he isn't cured either, and Jenny's claim that he could be of help was wrong...

Grant returns to the Collinsport Inn and goes to Olivia's room but finds no one there. He helps himself to some drinks. His clothes are in tatters.

Elizabeth and David consult the book. David finds what he thinks is the reason Elizabeth could not kill Julia. The passage states that one of the Leviathan people cannot kill a regular person, that it would be dangerous because that would cause the spirit of the person to stay to battle the Leviathan people, that a normal person must be killed by a normal person. Elizabeth doubts this, saying she is certain that it was her fond memories of Julia that prevented her from killing her, but David insists that the book is always right.

Julia goes to Olivia's room at the Inn and finds Grant there. She asks him where he was last night. Slightly drunk, he angrily tells her he is not an animal and she is not his keeper, that he doesn't have to tell her where he is at all times. Thinking that he is upset because he did turn into a werewolf, she tries to console him by telling him "it's not your fault." Grant, puzzled, replies that it was his fault, that he didn't have to hit the guy. Julia asks him what he means. Grant tells her he went to the "High Hat Lounge" in Portland last night to see if he could find out anything about himself and got into a fight there. (Recall that when he was found, Grant had a matchbook for the lounge there). Julia asks him what he learned. Grant replies that he found that he was a very private person and that no one seemed to know anything about him, but says that someone recognized the locker key (also in his pockets when found) and told him where the lockers were. He goes on to say that when he opened the locker he found out something about the "Fred Thorn" he had mentioned while under hypnosis. He gives Julia a manila envelope, saying it was in the locker. In it are a variety of papers, mostly ID and stuff belonging to Fred Thorn. But also included is a picture of Olivia Corey clipped from a newspaper.

Julia is in the drawing room at Collinwood. Chris is there too. Julia finishes a telephone call and tells Chris that the "High Hat Lounge" confirms that Grant was there last night and got into a fight.

Chris goes to Grant and tells him that he wants him to go with him to see Charles Delaware Tate. Grant asks why. Chris tells him that Tate is a recluse and refuses to see anyone, but might if he, Grant is there. Grant asks why that should be the case since Tate doesn't know him. Chris replies, "Yes, but he knew Quentin..". Grant tells him he's sick of so many people thinking he's Quentin. Chris tells him it doesn't matter whether he believes he's Quentin or not, all he has to do is pretend he is. Grant agrees.

David tells Elizabeth that he's got to go and tell Barnabas what happened regarding Julia.

Chris and Grant go to Tate's house. The voice on the loudspeaker tells Chris he doesn't want to see him. Then Grant says, "Well, how about me, Quentin Collins ?". The door opens they go in. The voice directs them to the room. Inside, Tate tells Grant he is lying, that he isn't Quentin. Grant asks him why he thinks this. Tate replies that it's because he's so young. Grant replies that he, Tate is also still young. Tate laughs and replies that that's because he is a talented artist. He then seems to remember something and tells Grant he believes he IS Quentin, then lambastes him for stealing Amanda Harris from him. He says something that upsets Grant. Grant picks up something and hurls it at Tate, knocking him off the chair. Grant leaves angrily. Chris goes to where Tate is lying and is surprised to see that the head has separated from the body. It is some kind of dummy...

Not far from Collinwood, Chris Jennings and the man Julia believes to be Quentin Collins have found the recluse Charles Delaware Tate. The name of Quentin Collins has opened the door of Tate's home, and brought them face-to-face with a strange and incredibly youthful looking Charles Tate, who insists they keep their distance.

Chris, realizing that whoever was speaking must be hiding somewhere, starts to search the room for him. He hears a whimpering noise coming from behind some curtains behind the desk, pulls them apart and finds a very old man hiding behind them and pulls him out. The old man is distraught over the destruction of the dummy, which he refers to as his 'creation'. He demands that Chris leave, threatening to sic his dogs on him if he doesn't. Chris refuses. He notices Tate creeping toward what looks like and intercom on the wall and remarking, "What's that for? To call for help? To call for your dogs? ", and rips the wire connecting the intercom. Chris tells Tate he's not leaving until he gives him what he wants. Tate tells Chris he has much money and jewels and tells him he'll give him anything he wants if he'll leave. Chris tells him it's not money or jewels that he wants. Tate asks what he wants. Chris replies that he wants him to paint a portrait of him, that he knows how he had painted one of Quentin and cured him of the werewolf curse. Tate gasps "Then you're a werewolf!". Chris tells him he is. Tate tells him it was a long time ago when he painted Quentin's portrait, that he had a power then that he no longer has, but Chris will not believe him. He forces Tate to give him the key to the room and locks the door, telling him they're both going to stay in the room until he's painted a portrait of him. Tate looks at his 'creation' again, becomes distraught, and refuses. Chris tells him he'd better, because there's going to be a full moon tonight...

At the antique shop, Carolyn is busy working when someone comes up to her from behind and playfully covers her eyes with his hands. Carolyn laughs and says "Alexander! Stop! I've got work to do". But the person takes his hands off and says "Alexander's gone. I'm Michael!". Carolyn is puzzled. Michael explains that he's a cousin of the Todds, that his parents have just been killed in an accident and he has come to live here, that the Todds had to send Alexander home because they were too busy to take care of two kids at once. Carolyn give him her condolences about his parents, but Michael replies "Everything's OK because you're here". Carolyn, seeing he has a crush on her, laughs. Michael becomes upset at this, saying he hates being treated like a little kid. Carolyn calms him down by telling him to go sort a stack of magazines in chronological order, saying that that proves she doesn't think of him as a little kid since it's not the sort of job one would give to a little kid. Michael goes and sorts the magazines. Underneath the pile, he finds Megan's Naga locket. He gives it to Carolyn, saying it's a gift. Carolyn notes that it's Megan's locket, implying that he stole it. Michael claims that Megan gave it to him. Philip comes down the stairs. He argues with Michael about the locket. Carolyn tries to calm them down by inviting them to go out with her for some ice cream sodas, but Philip and Michael just continue to glare at each other...

Grant, in the wood, runs away from Tate's house.

At Tate's house, Tate is painting as fast as he can, racing the sunset and the full moon...

At the shop, Carolyn excuses herself and leaves, saying she has something she has to go and do. Philip tells Michael that Carolyn left because his continuous staring at her unnerved her, and tells him it's not time yet and asks him to take things slowly. Michael tells Philip he doesn't like the way he's talking to him, that he has no right to reprimand him like that. Philip replies that he does as long as he's still a child. Michael ominously retorts, "But I won't be a child forever.."

In the woods, Grant feels himself mysteriously compelled to return to Tate's house.

At Tate's house, Tate finishes the painting and tells Chris to take it and leave. But Chris grabs his abdomen in pain and falls writhing to the floor. Tate tries to get the key from Chris but cannot because Chris' arms are wrapped around his body because of the pain. Chris turns into a werewolf...

Grant arrives at the door of Tate's cottage. He hears a blood-curdling scream.

Many things have changed since Barnabas Collins brought back the Leviathan Box from the past, and many things are soon to change. But right now in an almost-deserted mansion not far from Collinwood, Charles Delaware Tate, a man who was part of that past, is locked in a room, and about to learn he has no future.

Episodes #922, #923, #924, #925 and #926

Grant goes into the house. He finds the door to the room locked and breaks it down. Inside he sees a badly wounded old man lying on the floor. He goes to the old man and finds that he is still alive. He hears a growling sound and turns to see what's causing it. He sees the werewolf standing in the corner. The werewolf attacks him. Grant runs. The werewolf chases him around the room. Grant grabs a heavy metal sculpture from a table to defend himself with, but suddenly puts it down and picks up a small silver candlestick instead. The wolf, seeing this, runs off. Grant is surprised.

Julia, in Olivia's room, confronts her with the handwriting samples, informing her that an expert has said that they were identical, that they prove that she is indeed Amanda Harris. Olivia replies that that's ridiculous and explains that the resemblance in handwriting can be explained by the fact that it was her grandmother who taught her to write. Julia gets a phone call from Grant telling her to come to Tate's cottage because a medical emergency has occurred.

Julia and Olivia go to the cottage. Grant, telling Olivia to stay where she is, takes Julia into a bedroom where he has placed the old man. Julia examines him briefly, then asks him where Quentin's portrait is. Tate again tells her it was destroyed. Julia tells her she knows that that's not true because Quentin didn't turn into a werewolf. Tate tells her that he'll tell her if she gives him the one thing he wants - life. Julia tells him that his injuries are too severe and there's nothing she can do. He replies that if that's the case, he can't give her what she wants either. Julia tells him there's something else he wants that she can give him and asks Olivia to come into the room. She does. Tate gasps "Amanda!", then dies. Olivia starts to cry. Julia remarks that this proves that she is Amanda, that if she were not, she wouldn't be crying at the death of a man she has never met. Olivia weakly replies that she's just crying because he painted so many pictures of her grandmother and runs out of the house, visibly upset. Julia tells Grant to call the police.

In the woods, the werewolf jumps off a rock starts to attack Amanda, but suddenly stops and runs off without harming her...

Grant recounts to Julia what happened. He tells her about the strange incident where he picked up a heavy metal sculpture to defend himself with but for some reason he cannot explain put it down and picked up a silver candlestick instead, and puzzling fact that the animal ran off. Julia tells her it's not so strange, that silver is the one thing a werewolf is afraid of, that although he might not consciously know this, deep inside he knows because he's really Quentin... Grant remarks that Chris is lucky to have apparently escaped. Julia, not wanting to tell him that Chris is the werewolf, agrees...

Amanda, still distraught, goes to her room. Holding a locket, she says aloud, "Oh Quentin, Tate recognized me, why don't you ? Time is running out...".. She hears a noise and turns and sees that Julia is in the room and has heard her. Julia walks up to her and grabs the locket and finds the inscription "To A.H. from Q.C." and says "So you are Amanda Harris." Amanda admits that she is. Julia asks her what she's doing here and how she managed to stay young. Amanda explains, saying it started when Quentin told her in her hotel room that he was leaving forever, that she followed him to ask why and beg him not to. We get a flashback. In the flashback, Amanda and Quentin are standing on a bridge. Quentin explains to Amanda that he cannot be with her until he finds the portrait and knows that it's safe. She tells him that doesn't mean they have to be apart forever, that he can come back to her after he finds it. He tells him it might take him 20 years to find it or more. She tells him it won't matter that they're both older, that they'll both still love each other. He tells her that SHE'LL be 20 years older but he'll still be the same age, and that's why he has to leave forever. He leaves. Amanda starts to cry. A man walks up to her and, identifying himself as 'Mr. Best', tries to console her, but she suddenly leaps off the bridge.

Amanda explains to Julia that the bridge was a 'popular' suicide spot, that it was known as 'Dead Man's Leap' and that no one had ever survived jumping from it. Amanda explains that the last thing she remembers is hitting the cold, cold water, then awakening to find herself in what looked like some sort of hotel lobby. She tells Julia that though she could see no one, there seemed to be the sound of voices and people moving about. Suddenly, the man from the bridge appears. Amanda asks him what this place is and what they're doing here. The man explains that it's a sort of stopping off place, and that the sounds she hears are the memories of people who have been here. He tells her she doesn't belong here, that she was destined to have a long, long life, that's why he tried to stop her at the bridge. She tells him she didn't want to live any longer and explains why. He tells her he'll do something for her: that he'll send her back, that she'll live until the day on which she was destined to die without becoming old, that if she can find Quentin within that time and convince him to stay with her, they'll both live forever without aging. Amanda asks the man who he is, how he knows how long she will live and how he can do this for her, but he refuses to tell her. Amanda explains to Julia that that next thing she remembers, she was standing on the bridge again, completely dry. She tells Julia that she had concluded that it must have been a dream, but as the years went by and she didn't age, she became convinced that it really happened. She tells Julia that her time is almost up. Julia asks her how she knows this, did the man tell her what the date was? Amanda replies that he didn't, but that she can feel it. Julia tells her that there's hope, that something happened earlier that indicated that Grant was starting to recover his memories and leaves, saying that she has some ideas on how to expedite the process and has to go to Collinwood.

A few seconds after Julia leaves, there's a knock on the door. Amanda answers. It is the man from the dream. He says, "I waited until your guest left. Your time is up.."

A full moon shines over Collinwood. A moon which has caused the wolf that looks like a man to kill an ancient painter. And his death has caused Olivia Corey to admit that she is actually Amanda Harris, kept young by a mysterious stranger, so that she could find her great love, Quentin Collins. But the stranger warned her that if she failed, the next time she saw him would be the day of her death.

Amanda shrinks from the man. He comes in. He asks why everyone is so afraid of him. Amanda replies, "Because you're Death!". She tells him she's found Quentin, that he's here right now in another room in the Inn. He asks why she's so afraid of him, then, since she knows he'll let her live if she's found Quentin and made him love her again. She explains that she's found Quentin, but that he has amnesia and doesn't remember her. She asks him how much time she has left. He looks at his watch and tells her she has four minutes, adding that he is very punctilious, that's why he saved her from the werewolf earlier, because it wasn't her time yet. Desperate, she tells him that maybe by some miracle, Quentin will regain his memory and remember her in the remaining minutes. She goes across the hall and knocks on Quentin's room. But alas, there is no answer. He's not there...

At Collinwood, Julia is looking through an old photo album, looking for pictures of Quentin to show Grant and try to jog his memory. All the photos in the album have a caption written underneath. But she finds that all the ones of Quentin (e.g. "Quentin Collins, Christmas 1895", "Quentin at the Beach, Summer 1895") are missing. She wonders who could've taken them...

At the Inn, Mr. Best tells Amanda her time is almost up. There's a sound of footsteps approaching and Amanda says, "Wait! Maybe that's him!". But then there is the sound of a door opening and closing, and the footsteps stop. The person has obviously gone into another room and is not Quentin. Amanda begs for just a little more time. Mr. Best tells her that because she's already gotten so far and also because he likes her, he'll give her exactly 7 more days..

There is a furious knocking at the front doors of Collinwood. Carolyn answers. It is Sabrina, who has apparently escaped from Windcliff. Sabrina points at the moon and says, "Look! The moon! Come with me! Important!". Perhaps to humor her, Carolyn goes with her.

Julia goes back to the Inn and tells Amanda what happened. Amanda in turn tells her about Mr. Best's visit and what happened. Julia tells her there's still hope, that perhaps she can still find the one thing that will restore Quentin's memory. She leaves.

Sabrina brings Carolyn to Harrison Monroe's house. Carolyn asks her why she's brought her here. Sabrina tells her that there was a murder here, but that everyone's gone now. Carolyn asks what this has to do with her. Suddenly they notice that someone else has entered the room. It's Julia. Sabrina gets hysterical and screams at Julia, "You know! From the very first time I met you, I could feel that you knew! You've known about him and have been protecting him!". Carolyn takes the hysterical Sabrina away*...

Julia searches the room. In a desk, she finds a pile of form letters asking the recipient if he either has or knows the whereabouts of painting by Charles Delaware Tate called "A View of South Wales". They are all signed "Harrison Monroe". She theorizes that the reason Tate wanted to recover this painting so badly might be that it's the portrait of Quentin, that he lied to her when he claimed it was destroyed in the fire, that he painted over it like he did the painting of Amanda but somehow lost it.

Carolyn brings Sabrina back to Collinwood. She asks if she brought her to that house because Chris is the murderer. Sabrina pauses, then says "No. It wasn't Chris" (perhaps considering Chris and the werewolf two separate things). Sabrina asks Carolyn if she loves Chris. Carolyn replies that she doesn't anymore. Sabrina replies "I do..."

Julia returns to Amanda's room and tells her about the form letters she found and tells her that she's certain that the portrait of Quentin is underneath "A View of South Wales". She shows her a copy of a bill from an art gallery she found in Harrison Monroe's desk, apparently included in a reply to one of the form letters, showing that the painting "A View of South Wales" had been sold to a "Sky Rumson". Julia notes that the address given on the bill is in Little Windward Island, Maine, a small island only 50 miles away. Amanda is puzzled and tells Julia that Sky Rumson is a rich and famous publisher, but lives in New York. Julia replies that she's already checked, that the house in Maine is a summer house, and that she's learned he's coming there today.

Julia goes to the Rumson residence in Little Windward Island. She tells Rumson of her interest in a painting called "A View of South Wales". He shows her to the wall where it's hanging and points it out to her. It is a simple landscape, showing some houses on some rolling hills. Julia thinks to herself that it's exactly the right size, but cannot tell if there's anything under it just by looking at it. She lies to Rumson that she's organizing an exhibit of Tate's works and would like to borrow it. Rumson tells her that she'll have to check with his wife about that, that it's her favorite painting for some reason, jokingly adding that his wife seems to have such good taste in everything else. Julia asks if his wife is here. He replies that she isn't, that they usually come down in the same plane, but that today he had to come earlier for a business appointment. He looks at his watch and tells Julia that his wife's plane is scheduled to land in 7 minutes and that she should be here soon. Julia asks to talk to his wife, but Rumson is reluctant, saying it's the 6 month anniversary of their marriage tonight and they'd like to be alone. Julia promises not to take long. Rumson tells Julia he has some business calls to make and suggests to Julia that she can occupy herself while waiting by looking at the other paintings in the house, "including the most beautiful of them all, one of Mrs. Rumson". He leads her to a small alcove, turns on a light, points to a picture and says, "There she is". Julia is shocked. It is the portrait of Angelique. Rumson continues, "That's my Angelique.". *How Sabrina knows about Tate's murder is not explained.

A strange day at the great estate of Collinwood. A day of discovery for one woman who has journeyed to a house on a remote island, seeking the owner of Quentin's portrait, which is now covered by another painting. But while she waits for the woman who owns it, she makes an astounding and unexpected discovery.

Julia remarks that both the painting and the clothing the woman is wearing appear rather old. Rumson explains that Angelique had it painted that way because they first met each other at a costume party. He explains that he first saw her picture in a magazine of his in a fashion spread and became enamored of her. He excuses himself and leaves, saying he has some business calls to make.

In the drawing room at Collinwood, Maggie is reading something and watching David do some lessons. David complains about the amount of work Maggie gives him. Finally, he tells her that he's done. Michael comes, saying to David that he expected him to come to the antique shop to play, and when he didn't, he came here instead. Maggie tells him he can't play with David because David has a slight cold, but Michael and David promise to just play some board games and not anything to work up a sweat. Maggie leaves to correct David's lessons.

Angelique arrives at the Rumson summer home. She and Skye kiss warmly. He tells her there's a woman who came to see her and that she's waiting in the sitting room. Angelique goes to the sitting room. She is shocked to see that the woman is Julia. She closes the doors and asks Julia what she's doing here. Julia replies that she didn't expect to see her here and asks HER what SHE's doing here. Angelique tells her that she's started a new life, that she's found a man whom she loves and who truly loves her, that she wants nothing more to do with the Collins, that she's even renounced her powers. Julia, not believing this, asks what she's doing with the portrait of Quentin if this is all true. Angelique replies that it was a present from Skye. She explains that when Skye asked her to marry him, she took a long time to think about it, about a month, that one of the things she did when she was making up her mind was to go into a shop where she knew the painting was and look at it, remembering all the pain and trouble caused by her relationship with the Collins, that Skye had found out that she was coming to the shop and learned from the owner that she spent a lot of time looking at the picture and had bought it for her as a surprise wedding present. She begs Julia not to tell anyone about her. Julia tells her about the Grant Douglas, that she thinks he might be Quentin and asks to borrow the painting.

Michael cheats at the game he and David are playing, "Wall Street" (It looks a lot like 'Monopoly') by stealing some money from the bank. David gets upset and complains, but Michael tells him he can do whatever he wants to and orders him to finish the game. Maggie comes into the room and tells David that his handwriting is horrible, that there are entire sentences in the essay he has written that she cannot read. Michael arrogantly tells Maggie that she should let David continue playing and not bother him because it is not important to have legible handwriting, that many adults have illegible handwriting. David agrees, citing her handwriting as an example. Maggie gets very upset at this and tells David to come see her in his room in five minutes. After Maggie leaves, Michael angrily tells David that after he has his discussion with Maggie, they're going to have fun and play a 'game' with her.

Julia and Angelique reach an agreement. Julia agrees that she will keep Angelique's presence here a secret if she lets her 'borrow' the painting and return a copy.

At Collinwood, all the lights go out. David asks Michael 'Why did you do that?". Michael replies "To see if she's afraid of the dark". Maggie, holding a candle, goes through the house looking for David and Michael. When she finds them, she tells asks David where the fuse box is. David stupidly blurts out "I didn't do it!!". Maggie realizes that this indicates that someone DID do it, looks at Michael and says, "So YOU'RE responsible..". Michael gets upset and tells Maggie that he doesn't like her and is going to call Philip and Megan and have them pick him up. He runs off.

A little later, Maggie is in her room preparing for bed. She hears a loud breathing noise and, thinking David is playing a trick on her, searches for the source, calling, "David. I know it's you making that noise. Where are you?". The secret panel opens by itself. Maggie goes in. The panel closes, locking her in.

There is a fear within the Great House at Collinwood that everyone here is threatened by an evil as yet unseen. An evil that has something to do with Barnabas Collins, an antique shop, and those who live there. And on this night, alone in the house with two children, Maggie Evans will realize there is reason to fear, for her own life is in danger.

Maggie, still thinking that David is playing a trick on her, demands that he let her out. There is no response, so she starts to walk around and look for another way out.

All the clocks in the antique shop read almost 9:30. Megan looks at one of them and sits down in frustration. The clocks strike the half hour. Philip finally to the antique shop. Megan is furious with him, saying that he was supposed to be back at 6:30. Philip tells her that he was tied up doing appraisals at the Carson house. She tells him she knows that he was lying, that she called the Carson house at 7:30 and they told her he had already left and demands he tell her where he's really been. He tells her he's just been parked in the car, looking at the sea, thinking about what's happened to their lives. He asks where Michael is. Megan tells him Michael's staying at Collinwood. Philip becomes furious, saying she shouldn't have let Michael do that because he has no control of himself. They have a big argument.

Maggie, looking for another way out, finds herself where she started and realizes that she's been going around in circles.

Roger returns home and hear David and someone else playing a game in the drawing room. Inside, Michael tells David to sell him 100 shares of one of his stocks. David replies, "I don't want to", but Michael angrily tells him, "You'll sell when I tell you to sell!" Roger goes in and finds David playing "Wall Street" with a boy he's never seen before. David explains that the boy is Michael and is Alexander's cousin. Roger remarks that they're up early and asks where Maggie is. David replies that he thinks she's still in bed. After Roger leaves, Michael becomes angry and tells David that he can tell that Roger did not like Alexander, and does not like him either. He angrily tells David that the game is over, and storms out of the drawing room.

Roger goes and looks for Maggie. He knocks at the door to her room but gets no answer. He opens the door and finds that she is not there and that the bed has not been slept in.

Maggie, continuing to look for a way out, goes into a room she finds. She hears the breathing noise, and the door slams shut on her.

Roger comes back into the drawing room and tells David that he has looked for Maggie in her room and found that her bed has not been slept in. He asks David if he knows where she is. David replies that he doesn't know, maybe she went somewhere. Roger becomes upset at this, saying that if that is what Maggie did, then she is being irresponsible. Michael, who has been eavesdropping from the foyer, comes back into the room. Roger leaves to see if Maggie is somewhere in the house.

David and Michael play cards. Roger comes in and says he's searched the house and not found Maggie. There's a loud knocking at the front door. Roger answers. It's Philip. He tells Michael that it's time for him to go home. Michael arrogantly replies that he doesn't see why he should, that he doesn't see why he and David can't just keep playing since David's governess isn't here to give him his lessons anyway. But Philip refuses to listen and takes him back to the antique shop anyway. Michael, who doesn't want to go, is furious and struggles the entire way. When they get there Philip is so angry that he takes Michael over his knees and raises his hand to spank him, but Megan stops him. Philip angrily goes upstairs. Michael tells Megan that he thinks Philip isn't as dedicated to 'their goal' as she is and touches her face. He tells her that Philip might be a liability to them and says that something must be done about him. Megan replies in a robotic tone, "Something must be done about Philip". Michael leaves. Megan goes to a writing table, lifts the top and takes out a revolver...

For some time, Barnabas Collins has known that he has not been himself. Now, on this day, he will come to understand the full debt of the evil forces that have possessed him. But during the night that has just passed, Maggie Evans was lured from her room by a strange, unnatural sound, and soon found herself trapped in the secret passageways at Collinwood. Her disappearance has caused great concern, not only at Collinwood, but at the antique shop in the village. There, Philip Todd has blamed his young child Michael for being responsible for Maggie's disappearance.

When Philip returns to the antique shop, Megan points the gun at him and says, "I've got to do this". But Barnabas shows up and says "No you don't", takes the gun from her and tells her to go upstairs.

Michael goes to Collinwood. David asks him what's he doing back there. Michael lies that he left a book there. David accuses him of having something to do with Maggie's disappearance, but Michael denies it. Michael starts to go upstairs to 'find his book'. David tells him he'll go with him, but Michael tells him he can find it himself and orders him to stay downstairs.

Still locked in the room, Maggie hears the loud breathing sound again. She decides that David can't be responsible, that if he had been playing a joke on her, he would have stopped by now. She thinks that it's perhaps Michael, or something else.

Barnabas tells Philip that Michael is out of control and must be responsible for Megan's actions. He asks where Michael is. Philip replies that he's not sure, but that he thinks he must be at Collinwood, that he had spent the night there. He tells Barnabas what happened there, about Maggie's being missing. Barnabas tells him to go to Collinwood and try to find out what Michael did with Maggie. After Philip leaves, Barnabas thinks to himself that he doesn't like what's been happening, what he's been doing, that he hasn't been himself and vows to try to fight back and try do something to rectify the situation. The old Barnabas seems to be coming back...

Megan comes back down and Barnabas tells her that Michael is out of control, that his actions are endangering their plans and that they'll have to change their plans. He tells her this'll have to be the 'end for Michael', that they'll have to lock him up until the time for him to emerge. Megan asks Barnabas how they'll explain Michael's absence.

In the room, Maggie hears the breathing stop. It is replaced by a voice telling her "I'm coming to get you soon..."

Philip arrives at Collinwood and asks David if he knows anything about what Michael has done with Maggie. At first, David, fearing Michael, lies that he knows nothing, but Philip eventually convinces him to tell him. David tells him that the last time he saw Maggie was when she was going into her room, just as he was going to bed. Philip asks him to take him there.

The voice continues to taunt Maggie, telling her she'd better not fall asleep...

In Maggie's room, Philip asks David where his room is. David replies that it's right across the hall. He asks him if he heard her come out last night after he went to bed. David replies no. Philip remarks that if Michael had lured her out of her room, then he would have heard something, and asks David if there's any other way out of the room. David tells him about the secret passage and shows him. Philip goes in..

In the secret passage, Michael, hiding in the shadows, sees Philip and smiles. In the room, Maggie hears footsteps coming and grabs a candlestick to use as a weapon. The voice continues to taunt her, saying "I'm coming to get you NOW!". Philip gets to the room. He unlocks it from outside . Maggie raises the candlestick...

In a hidden maze beneath the Great House, a young woman has learned the meaning of fear, the same fear that has forced Barnabas Collins into a life of terror. Locked in a sealed room, Maggie Evans knows that she has a tormenter, who has led her through a terror-filled chase through the darkened secret passageways at Collinwood. Although she has no certain idea of who he is, she does know with fearful certainty that he is far from finished with her.

Philip opens the door and walks in. Maggie whacks him...

Julia is in the drawing room of Collinwood. Michael enters through the secret door next to the fireplace. Julia asks him how he knows about the secret passage. Michael explains that David told him about them. Julia asks him if he knows about the one in Maggie's room. He admits that he does. She asks him if he knows what happened to Maggie. He lies that he doesn't. Suddenly, Maggie runs crying into the room. Michael runs out. Maggie explains that she was lured into the secret passages and locked in a room, that it was Philip who was responsible and that she had killed him. Julia asks Maggie to take her there. Michael, eavesdropping from the foyer, smiles...

Maggie takes Julia to the room...

Michael returns to the antique shop. Megan is there. He scolds her for not having killed Phillip as he ordered. She replies that she could not, that she's loved Phillip too long. Michael replies that that's now irrelevant, that 'that traitor Philip is now dead', that he's had him killed. Shocked and distraught, Megan runs out of the shop.

Megan arrives at Collinwood and cries to Julia that she must see Philip. Julia tells her she cannot.

Michael is playing in the antique shop. A hand touches him on the shoulder. He turns to see who it is and is shocked. It is Philip. Philip tells her that his plan didn't work, that Maggie wasn't strong enough to kill him. He grabs Michael and appears to be about to beat him, but Megan comes rushing in and stops him. She tells Michael to go up to her bedroom. He does. Philip, furious, tells Megan that the boy is out of control and that something must be done about him. Megan tells him there is a way...

In Megan's room, Michael maliciously writes his name on the mirror with lipstick. Megan comes in and tells him they're going to have to do something he won't like.....

Maggie comes to the antique shop and apologizes to Philip for thinking he was responsible for what happened to her and panicking and whacking him. Philip apologizes to Maggie for Michael's actions, explaining that ever since his parents died in the accident, he's been acting strangely, angry at the world for what happened.

Megan finishes explaining to Michael what must be done. He does not like it and screams that he doesn't love her anymore. She responds, "But you love Carolyn, don't you?". This mollifies him, and he picks up the lipstick and writes "+ Carolyn" under his name on the mirror, then draws a heart around it...

Maggie is still talking to Philip. Suddenly, Megan comes running down the stairs screaming that something is seriously wrong with Michael, that he's unconscious, and frantically calls Julia.

Julia comes to the antique shop and examines Michael. He is conscious but delirious. She finds that his heart is beating very strangely and tells them he must be put in the hospital. While she is calling the hospital, Megan goes to stroke Michael and suddenly screams that he is dead. Julia, saying she'll try to shock him back to life, prepares an injection...

For Barnabas Collins, threatened with the return of the curse of the vampire, a time of terror continues. For Maggie Evans, a time of terror at Collinwood has ended, and the source of her torment has been identified as Michael, the boy who lives with Megan and Philip Todd at the antique shop. And now Michael faces his own time of terror. Full with shocking swiftness, he has fallen ill, and as she examines him, Julia Hoffman knows his illness is grave indeed.

Julia gives Michael the injection, but it doesn't work...

After Julia signs the death certificate, she tells the Todds that she finds the death somewhat odd and would like to consult some experts and have an autopsy performed, but Megan becomes upset at this, saying it's clear why Michael died, that after his parents died, he lost all will to live, that both they and Mrs. Hutchins in 'Colleaguesport' (?), who took care of him at first, tried their best, but to no avail.

At his house, Stokes is examining the painting Julia got from Angelique. Julia comes. Stokes tells her he has called Professor Osmond. He notices that she seems upset and preoccupied. He tells her he'll get some sherry to relax her. As he is going, she asks him where 'Colleaguesport' is. He tells her it's a small town about 20 miles away. When he gets back with the sherry, she is gone.

Julia goes to Colleaguesport and looks up Mrs. Hutchins. She discusses Michael's death with her for a while then, apparently convinced that the Todd's story of her having taken care of him for awhile was true, leaves. Philip comes in from another room, tells Mrs. Hutchins she did very well and gives her an envelope full of money. She asks what this was all about, why he wanted her to lie about having taken care of a child named Michael, but he tells her she doesn't need to know that. Philip leaves. He doesn't notice that Julia is hiding behind some bushes outside and sees him leaving.

Philip returns to the antique shop and tells Megan that they have been successful in fooling Julia.

Julia returns to Stoke's house. Stokes, somewhat angry, asks why she left so abruptly. She tells him she had to check something out. He tells her he hopes she was successful. She replies that she was. She tells him that something very strange is happening, that she needs his help, and starts to explain the strange occurrences of Barnabas' odd behavior, the Todds, and the succession of blond children at the antique shop, each with the same birthmark.

Julia finishes telling her story, recounting Michael's strange death, and what happened at Mrs. Hutchins, that she saw Philip there and thinks the whole thing was a setup. Stokes tells her he'll help. He tells her she should try to question Paul while he goes and investigates the antique shop. She replies that she's tried, but could not get much out of Paul because he seems confused and fearful. He tells her to try anyway, that it would be worth it because he might know a lot.

At the antique shop, Megan is still moping about Michael. Philip tells her she's got to forget about Michael, and they get into an argument about this. Stokes comes into the shop, and they stop arguing. Stokes buys a statue, then compliments the Todds on what a nice shop they have, saying that he's glad to see that they have all sorts of antiques here, not just the standard colonial New England stuff most stores in this area have. He points to Megan's Naga locket and remarks that that, for example, is obviously from another part of the world. Philip wraps his statue up and gives it to him. Stokes notices that Philip is wearing a ring with the same design as Megan's locket. Stokes tells them he's got to leave, saying that he bought the statue as a birthday gift, and he's got to leave for the party right now. After he leaves, Megan tells Philip she's got a strange feeling about Stokes. Philip agrees, and tells Megan he's sure Stokes noticed his ring. Megan notices that Stokes, in spite of his claim he had to hurry to a party, is standing across the street watching the shop, and draws the curtains. They hear the sound of footsteps upstairs. They are shocked to see Michael walking down the stairs. He announces, "I've decided not to go through with it.."

Since Barnabas Collins returned from the past, his actions have been a mystery and a matter of concern to many who have once been close to him. No one has known of the strange force that has compelled him to do the things he has done, the people of the Leviathans, who hold his beloved Josette hostage, and threaten him with the return of the curse of the vampire. He has become desperate to find a way of stopping the menace who threatens Collinwood. The menace that exists in an upstairs room of the antique shop in Collinsport.

The Todds try to explain to Michael that that's impossible now, and tell him to go back upstairs to his room. He refuses. Philip, exasperated, grabs him and drags him upstairs. Carolyn telephones and tells Megan that her mother would like them to come over for dinner.

Megan goes upstairs and finds Philip outside the door to Michael's room. He tells her that he's locked the door from the outside and Michael won't be able to get out again. She warns him that Michael is getting stronger everyday. Philip agrees, and says he will put a stronger bolt on the door.

At Collinwood, Paul sneaks down into the drawing room and snoops around. He finds a gun in a drawer and puts it into the pocket of his robe. Carolyn comes into the drawing room and asks him what he's doing there. He tells her he feels much better and just wanted to walk around a bit. He asks her for a strange favor. Saying that he's found out that he's allergic to the medicine they've been giving him but that they won't believe him, that he's feeling much better because he's stopped taking it, he asks her to bring him some food, saying that they've started putting the medicine in his food. She agrees, but after Paul goes upstairs, she shakes her head sadly...

Paul goes back to his room and is shocked to see Barnabas in there. He pulls the gun on him and asks him what he wants. Barnabas tells him he wants to help him. Paul replies that he's have to be an idiot to believe that. Barnabas tells him to look on the bed. He does and sees a box with an envelope on top. Barnabas explains that he knows that his clothes were taken away after the time he escaped to town and that the box contains clothing, that the envelope contains enough money for him to go quite a distance. Paul replies that he won't leave, that he has to stay to protect Carolyn. Barnabas assures him that he'll protect her. Paul agrees to go. Barnabas leaves, saying he'll go and make sure the coast is clear. Paul thinks to himself that he's fooled Barnabas, that he has no intention of leaving, that he'll stay in Collinsport and investigate what's going on, starting with the mysterious antique shop.

Philip finishes putting in the bolt, and the Todds prepare to go to Collinwood.

In the drawing room, Elizabeth takes a bottle of some sort of liquid and puts a label on it. Carolyn comes in and asks what it is. Elizabeth replies that it's a refill for Paul's medicine. Carolyn volunteers to take it up to him. Elizabeth replies that that's not necessary, that she'll do it, but Carolyn tells her it would be better if she took it up because he's more likely to take it if she brings it. Elizabeth tells her she didn't think of that and gives it to her. Philip and Megan come, and Carolyn goes upstairs with the bottle.

Barnabas returns to Paul's room. Paul is dressed. There's a knock on the door. Barnabas hides behind the curtains. Paul lets Carolyn in. She asks him why he's dressed. He tells her he can't stand being cooped up for so long and wants to take a walk. She tells him he can't, but eventually relents and tells him she'll let him if she can accompany him, but tells him that he'll have to wait for half an hour because the Todds are here. She tells him to promise that he'll stay here. He does. After she goes, Barnabas tells him that everyone's in the drawing room and he'll go downstairs to make sure the door is closed, that he is to follow and leave when he sees the drawing room doors closed.

In the drawing room, Philip, Megan and Elizabeth discuss their plans. Megan tells Elizabeth that soon, all the Leviathan people from all over the world will eventually come to Collinsport. Barnabas comes in. He begins to shut the door, peering out briefly to see that Paul is coming down the stairs. Elizabeth asks what he's doing. He lies that he's just seeing what time it is and closes the doors. Paul comes down the stairs. He sees Megan's purse on the table and steals a bunch of keys from it.

Paul goes to the shop and, using the keys he stole from Megan's purse, opens the door and goes in and starts to search around.

Philip and Megan finish talking to Elizabeth and Barnabas. Elizabeth offers to let them stay for the night, but they tell her they'd rather go back to the shop and leave.

Paul makes his way upstairs. Outside Michael's room, he hears the loud breathing sound. He unbolts the door and tries the door, but finds that it is still locked. He takes the bunch of keys and starts trying them. He finds the right one, opens the door and goes in. He sees something that terrifies him and screams, "NO ! NO! NO!". It is clear that whatever he sees is BIG, as his head is upturned and it's clear that he's looking UP...

For many weeks, Barnabas Collins, faced with the threat again of becoming one of the living dead, has been forced to do things against his own will. But finally he decides that he must secretly fight back. On this night, he has arranged the escape of Paul Stoddard, who has been a virtual prisoner inside the Great House. But Paul Stoddard also knows of the menace that threatens the family. And hoping to find proof of it, he has gone to a small antique shop in Collinsport, unaware of the terrifying nightmare that awaits him.

Paul tries to escape, but the thing, which is invisible to us, closes the door and backs him into a corner.

The Todds return to the shop. Megan notices that things are out of place and tells Philip that someone has been here. Thinking that Michael has somehow gotten out of the room, they go upstairs to check. They find the door unlocked and go in. They find Paul cowering in the corner. They try to get him out, but the thing won't let them. Megan tells Philip there's only one thing they can do, call Barnabas for help.

At Collinwood, Julia is trying to talk to Barnabas again, asking him what's happened to him, but Barnabas tells her not to get involved, that it can get dangerous. The phone rings. Julia answers. It's Megan, asking for Barnabas. She gives the phone to him. Megan tells Barnabas what's happened and asks him to come to the shop. Barnabas tells Julia he's got to leave. Julia tells him she can tell something's happened and asks him what it is. He denies that anything has happened and rushes out of Collinwood. Carolyn comes down and tells Julia her father is missing.

Barnabas arrives at the shop. He tells Megan to get a cot ready in the basement. He goes into the room and orders the thing to let Paul go. The thing obeys, reluctantly.

Having searched the Blue Whale and the Collinsport Inn and not found Paul, Julia and Carolyn are standing in front of the Inn. Julia asks Carolyn if there's anywhere else he's been known to go. Carolyn tells her he sometimes goes to the antique shop.

Barnabas takes Paul down the the room in the basement. Megan asks what he plans to do with him. Barnabas replies that he doesn't know yet, that for the time being, they're just going to have to keep him here. Megan disagrees with this, saying that Paul knows too much and should be killed. Barnabas angrily tells her that there will be no more killing and tells her she's getting as bloodthirsty as Michael. The door entrance bell rings, and the Todds quickly go upstairs.

Upstairs, Julia and Carolyn tell the Todds that Paul is missing and ask if he's come here. They lie that he has not.

Downstairs, Paul goes crazy and starts to struggle with Barnabas. During the struggle, Paul knocks a lamp down.

Upstairs, everyone hears the crash. Julia asks if anyone else is in the shop. The Todds lie that there isn't. Philip tells them he'll go downstairs to see what caused the noise.

Downstairs, Barnabas tells Paul to calm down, that he's going to help him escape, but that he'll have to wait because he can't do it right now. Philip comes down and Barnabas tells him what happened.

Philip comes back up, holding the lamp. He tells them that Megan had apparently put it too close to the edge of a crate and that it fell down, causing the noise. Julia and Carolyn leave.

Outside, Julia tells Carolyn to drive back to Collinwood by herself. She stays and surreptitiously watches the shop.

In the shop, Barnabas tells the Todds that the door to Michael's room is to be kept locked and not be opened for any reason. He leaves the shop. Julia, from her hiding place, sees him.

Megan tells Philip that Barnabas seems to have changed, that she doesn't agree with his judgment anymore. After Philip is asleep, she goes to Michael's room and opens the door. The thing (invisible), walks heavily down the stairs towards the room where Paul is.

In the room, Paul hears noises outside the door and smells the same sickly sweet smell he smelled in the room upstairs. He frantically looks for another way out of the room, but finding none, picks up a chair and prepares to hit whatever comes in through the door.

A night of panic in the Great House of Collinwood. For Barnabas Collins, especially. Forced to become a Leviathan because the cruel clan holds Josette hostage in the past, Barnabas has a new and frightening problem. Paul Stoddard has disappeared, run from the house searching for evidence of the mysterious plot he so fears. He goes to the antique shop, and there in an upstairs room, he discovers a secret that shocks him so much, he is easily captured. And now Paul, confined to a small, window-less room, suddenly smells the same heavy, strange odor he smelled in the room before, and he hears a sound. A sound which terrifies him.

The thing tears the door off its hinges, comes in and knocks the chair out of Paul's hands and attacks him. Suddenly, a voice orders him to stop and leave Paul alone. It is Barnabas. The thing stops. Barnabas orders the thing to follow him. Megan, who's been listening to the attack from the stair landing, hears Barnabas and runs into her room. Barnabas takes the thing upstairs and locks it back in its room. He angrily calls for Megan. She comes out of her room. He asks her why she didn't do anything, that she surely must have heard the commotion. She replies that she did, but was afraid to do anything, that she couldn't awaken Philip because he had taken some sleeping pills. Barnabas accuses her of lying and having opened the door deliberately to let the thing attack Paul.

Paul runs out of the antique shop, right into the arms of Julia. She takes him away.

Barnabas goes downstairs and finds that Paul is gone.

Julia takes Paul to Stokes' house. Stokes notes that Paul's clothing is ripped, as if by a wild animal and even stranger, smells strangely of decay. Julia tells him she found him outside the antique shop in a state of shock. She remarks that its the same condition Amy had been in after being in the shop. Stokes asks what caused Amy's shock. Julia replies that it was seeing Grant Douglas and thinking it was Quentin, but that that couldn't be the case with Paul. There's a phone call. Stokes answers. It's Professor Osmond. He tells Stokes that the painting will be finished in about 3 hours. Stokes tells Julia this. Stokes suggests that they call the police and have them investigate the shop, but Julia begs him not to, saying that Barnabas is involved, that she saw him there tonight and wants to keep the police out of it. She asks if she can leave Paul there for awhile. Stokes says yes, and she leaves.

Megan, at the shop, continues to find Barnabas' behavior suspicious. She asks herself why Barnabas returned to the shop after he had left. She decides to call Elizabeth and talk to her about it. She calls Collinwood, but Olivia, who is in the foyer, answers and tells her Elizabeth isn't there.

Julia returns to Collinwood and finds Olivia waiting in the foyer for her. Olivia is desperate. She tells Julia that her time is almost up, that she saw Mr. Best sitting in the lobby of the Inn, looking at his watch. Julia asks her how much time she has left. She tells her "Two hours". Julia tells her there's still hope, that the painting is almost finished. She tells Olivia to return to the Inn and try to do what she can to get Grant to remember, that she'll try to see if she can get the painting finished faster. Olivia leaves, and Julia calls Professor Osmond.

Olivia returns to the Inn and tries to get Grant to remember. She is not having any success. She gets a call from Julia telling her that Osmond has called her and told her the painting is finished and to meet her at his house with Grant.

Stokes tries to get Paul to talk, but has no success.

Julia, Olivia and Grant meet at Osmond's house. They go into a room, Osmond having told them they can look at the portrait in private. In the room is a painting covered by a blue cloth. Julia unveils the portrait. Olivia looks at it, screams and runs out of the room...

A climatic night at the great estate of Collinwood. The night in which time is of greatest importance. To save Amanda Harris from her meeting with death, Grant Douglas must regain his memory. And so two women take him an odd professor's workshop, in a last, desperate effort to break through his amnesia.

...for the portrait is indeed that of Quentin Collins, but it is of an extremely old man who looks like he has been disfigured by syphilis, face pockmarked, nose partially rotted away. Grant turns away in horror...

Outside the house, Amanda thinks to herself, "Is that what Quentin would look like if it weren't for the portrait? Would I look something like that if it weren't for Mr. Best?". Suddenly, she sees Mr. Best standing there beside her. He tells her her time is up...She begs for just a few more minutes, saying that something's just happened and Quentin might have regained his memory, but that she left without finding out...

Inside, Julia asks Grant if the portrait has had any effect on his memory. Grant replies that it has not, but has his face turned away, not wanting to look at it. She asks him to look at it again. He refuses. She asks him why he would have such a reaction to it if it meant nothing to him. He looks at it again.

Outside, Mr. Best tells Olivia that her time is out and that he's not going to give her any more.

Inside, Grant, looking at the portrait, suddenly says to Julia, "Aren't you afraid to be in the same room as Quentin Collins, Julia? Can't you see what I really am, how everything that should have happened to me has happened to the portrait instead, that the portrait is me as I really am? ". He has regained his memory. Julia explains Amanda and her situation with Mr. Best to him. Quentin runs outside, but Amanda is gone. He finds some stuff she has dropped on the floor.

Mr. Best takes Amanda back to the 'hotel lobby'. He tells her that this is just a waiting area and leaves, saying he has other people to see. She tries to open the door, but finds it locked. A bellboy appears behind her and asks, "You want to go out?", and gives her a key. She tries it but finds that it doesn't open the door. The bellboy laughs and says, "Oh, I fool a lot of people with that one!". He tells her that no one gets out, and that he'll show her to her room...

Quentin and Julia return to Amanda's room. Quentin agonizes over how he came so close, how he finally found Amanda but did not know who she was and lost her again forever. He tells Julia he wants to be alone and asks her to leave. She does. Quentin picks up a letter opener and, saying "I WILL be with her!", prepares to kill himself, but Mr. Best comes in through the door and says, "Don't. It's not your time yet.". Quentin stops. The man remarks, "Quentin, Amanda's told me a lot about you .". Quentin replies, "So your the one who took her!", and raises the knife to attack him, but Mr. Best uses his powers to force Quentin to drop the knife without touching him. Quentin tells Mr. Best that he loves Amanda and will do anything to be with her.

In the 'hotel lobby', the bellhop is entering Amanda's name in a ledger. The front door opens and Mr. Best enters with Quentin. The bellboy finishes what he's doing and leaves. Mr. Best tells Quentin that the door through which they have entered is one way, that only he, Mr. Best, can go out through it. Quentin tries it and finds it locked. Mr. Best then shows Quentin to another door, this on a heavy iron one. He tells Quentin that it is the only way out and opens it. The sounds of wind and thunder come from outside. He tells Quentin that it's a difficult journey, that few have ever successfully traversed it back to the world of the living. Quentin remarks that it looks like a trap. Mr. Best replies that it's many traps. Closing the door, Mr. Best tells Quentin that he'll let him and Amanda try the journey, and that if they're successful, he'll let them live together forever. He tells Quentin that they'll be allowed to bring one thing with them, the two candlesticks on the table beside the ledger. He then gives Quentin one additional warning, that he and Amanda are not to touch until they reach the world of the living, that if they do, she'll be lost to him forever. He tells Quentin he'll go get Amanda and leaves. Quentin picks up the candlesticks, goes to the iron door and opens it to look over what he's facing. As he is looking and pondering, Amanda comes into the room, sees him and, overjoyed to see him, starts to walk over to him, arms raised ready to hug him...

A long time ago at Collinwood, Quentin Collins and Amanda Harris fell in love, then lost each other for more than a lifetime. Now they're finally to be re-united, in the domain of death. But soon they will learn how fragile their moment of heaven is, for death is greedy and reluctant to let go of what is his. And he has told Quentin that Amanda will never be able to leave if they should touch before they escape his domain.

Quentin turns around just in time, screams at Amanda not to touch him and explains the situation to her. He finds that Mr. Best had told her nothing, the first trap... They start their journey..

At the shop, Megan calls the sheriff about Paul...

At Stokes' house, Stokes tries to get Paul to talk by telling him he's safe there, to no avail

Megan and Philip at the shop hear a huge sound coming from upstairs. They go up to the chosen room to investigate and find the boards covering one of the windows all broken. The thing has escaped... Megan tell Philip it's obviously gone after Paul...

Quentin and Amanda are making their way through the caverns leading back to the land of the living. Amanda wanders and suddenly finds herself trapped in a giant spider web. The spider starts to crawl towards her. Quentin picks up a rock and throws it at the spider, killing it. They decide to use Quentin's coat to keep from becoming separated. He takes it off and they each take one sleeve, holding it as a guide rope between them.

Philip tells Megan that they must get Barnabas and tell him what happened. Megan refuses, saying that they should let the thing go and get Paul. In fact, she ORDERS him not to get Barnabas.

Amanda slips and sprains her ankle, but tell Quentin she can still go on.

Stokes still has no luck getting Paul to talk. He leaves the room to get something. While he is away, Paul goes to the phone and starts to ask the operator to call the police. Stokes comes back in, hears him and says, "So, Mr. Stoddard, you CAN talk !". For some reason, Paul is afraid of him and runs from him, going into another room and locking the door. Stokes tries to get him to come out, but he won't. Stokes telephones Julia.

Quentin and Amanda see a light at the end of the caverns and realize that they are almost through. But they find a rickety rope bridge in their way. Amanda tells Quentin she is afraid to cross it. Quentin tells her she must, saying that they'll have to go separately because it might not bear both their weights. He tells her he'll go first, that if it can bear his weight, then it will bear hers. He starts.

Julia comes to Stokes. She tries to get Paul to come out of the room, but he refuses, saying that he'll only talk to the police. Julia lies that she'll call the police, then. She goes to the phone and spins the dial a few times and then pretends to talk to the police. Suddenly, there's a commotion in the room where Paul is. Paul screams. The door opens and Paul comes out and falls to the floor.

Quentin finishes crossing the bridge. He calms Amanda down and coaxes her to cross the bridge. She starts to walk across slowly.

Stokes comes out of the room where Paul was and tells Julia the room is completely in shambles, but there's no longer anything in there but a strange smell. Julia tells Stokes that Paul is dead. They decide that they must call the police.

Just as she is about to reach the end of the bridge, Amanda falls through a hole. She just barely manages to grab hold of the top rope of the bridge.

Darkness lies over Collinwood. For Paul Stoddard, the darkness is eternal, for he lies dead in Professor Stoke's flat. And for another member of the family, too, death tonight is the enemy. For Quentin Collins is trying to bring Amanda Harris back to the world of the living. On the journey they have faced many dangers, and overcome them without touching each other, the one forbidden act. Now, near the end of the journey, they must face the greatest danger of all.

Quentin instinctively reaches out, grabs her arm and pulls her back up. They both suddenly realize they have touched. They run, trying to reach the exit before it's too late, but a bunch of rocks fall on Amanda, burying her. Quentin awakens and finds himself in the woods, knowing he has lost Amanda forever.

The sheriff arrives at Stokes. He tells them he has never seen anything like it and tells them he'll take Paul's coat to a chemist to have the strange substance on it analyzed.

At the antique shop, Megan and Philip anxiously await the thing's return. Philip tells Megan that he thinks it would be better if the thing not come back here, that it would be better if it hid in the woods because the authorities might follow it here if it returned to the shop. They hear a noise upstairs followed by the sound of loud breathing. They realize that the thing is back...

Julia tells the sheriff that Paul's last words were about "Monster! Room at top of stairs !". The sheriff asks if she has any idea where this room might be. She replies that she thinks it might be at the antique shop because she found him running out of there. The phone rings. Stokes answers it and gives it to the sheriff. After talking on the phone, the sheriff tells them that the chemist is baffled by the substance and will send the coat to a more advanced laboratory in Bangor to see if they can determine what it is. Julia asks the sheriff what they should tell the Collins. The sheriff tells her they should keep it quiet and tells her to just say died of a heart attack.

At the shop, Megan comes back downstairs and tells Philip that she tried to talk to it and explain to it why it should go hide in the woods, but that it refused. Philip tells Megan that he doesn't like the way things are going and suggests that they just wash their hands of the whole thing and leave. Megan refuses. The phone rings. Megan answers. After hanging up, she beams and tells Philip that it was Elizabeth telling her that Paul had died of a heart attack without saying a thing. She leaves, saying she's going to Collinwood to pay her 'respects'...

At Stokes, the sheriff hangs up the phone and tells Julia that the search warrant will be ready within an hour.

At the antique shop, Philip stands around moping. Julia and the sheriff come. The sheriff tells him that the shop was mentioned in a dying man's last words, and he has a search warrant to search the place. Philip tries to stop him with the excuse that they've just had a death in the family and are in no mood for a useless search, but the sheriff replies that he's sorry but he has to. Reluctantly, lets them search. At the top of the stairs, the sheriff stops at Michael's room and asks what's in there. Philip begs him not to go in there, saying it's the room belonging to the child that just died and it would be too painful, but the sheriff replies that the dying man had specifically said 'the room at the top of the stairs', and that's one room he's got to search. He pulls his gun and starts to open the door...

On this night, death hangs heavy over Collinwood. Paul Stoddard, who in the past sold his daughter Carolyn to an agent of the Leviathan cult for purposes as yet unknown, even to him, has been murdered by a relentless and unforgiving enemy. The same enemy who has threatened to return Barnabas Collins to being a creature of the night if he does not obey. But even in death, Stoddard has found allies and they have persisted in tracking down his killer. And the trail has led to a closed door in the Todd antique shop.

The sheriff opens the door. Standing inside is a tall young man in his mid 20's. The sheriff asks the man what he's doing there. The man replies that it's his room. The sheriff turns to Philip and remarks, "I thought you said this was the boy's room." Philip is at a loss of words. The young man chimes in "He doesn't know anything about me. His wife rented this room to me while he was out. ". He introduces himself as Jeb Hawkes, Jeb for short. The sheriff leaves to search the rest of the house. Phillip goes with him. Julia talk briefly with Jeb. When they shake hands, Julia notices something...

Having searched the house and found nothing, the sheriff is downstairs with Phillip. Phillip tells the sheriff that he's gotten an antique tea strainer like the one his wife has been asking for and leaves the room to get it. While he is out of the room, the sheriff finds something on the floor and puts it in his pocket.

Outside the shop, Julia tells the sheriff that in spite of the fact that they didn't find anything, she still believes that something is going on here. The sheriff tells her he agrees, that he DID find some things, that he smelled the same odor in the room as in the room where Paul died...

Barnabas goes to the shop and reprimands Jeb for killing Paul. Jeb tells him he's an adult now and will no longer listen to any orders from him. He orders Barnabas to expedite things with Carolyn.. Barnabas tells him he made a bad mistake in killing Paul, that according to the book, it was to be Paul who gave Carolyn away at the wedding. Jeb replies that he doesn't care, he's not following the book's rules anymore either.

Julia goes to the Inn and finds Quentin there. Quentin recounts what happened to Amanda. Julia tells him about what's happening and tells him that he's the one person who can help Barnabas and asks him to try in spite of his pain over losing Amanda, but Quentin, totally distraught, refuses.

The sheriff goes to the antique shop. Jeb answers the doors. The sheriff asks for the Todds, saying he has some more things to question them about. Jeb replies that the Todds are not here, and the sheriff leaves, saying he'll return later. Philip comes out of another room and asks what the sheriff wanted. Jeb replies that "You probably messed something up. Don't worry. I'll take care of it" and leaves.

At Collinwood, Julia confronts Barnabas and tells him that the Sheriff had found a burnt cufflink at the Todd's and that they are closing in. She suggests that he go to the sheriff before the sheriff comes to him, that things might be easier for him if he does..

Jeb Hawkes goes to the sheriff's office in monster form and kills the sheriff. Moments after he does so, there is a knock at the door. Barnabas comes in, sees the sheriff, examines him, and finds that he is dead. When he looks up, he sees Jeb standing there. Barnabas remarks, "I guess I don't have to ask what you're doing here..". Jeb replies, "The important question is, what are YOU doing here ?".

A night of decision at Collinwood. For Jeb Hawkes refuses to admit that his plans for Carolyn have been affected by the killing of Paul Stoddard, who sold her to the Leviathans, and was to give her to Jeb at the wedding ceremony. Now Barnabas, forced to become one of the cult because Josette is being held hostage in the past, and because they threaten him with the return of the curse of the vampire, has decided that whatever the risk, he must break with the cruel clan. He can no longer account for the raging salvegry of Jeb, and so he goes to the police.

Jeb continues, "Did you come here to betray me?". Barnabas lies his way out of it by saying that the sheriff had found one of Paul's cufflinks at the shop and that he came here with a phony story to explain it.

At Collinwood, the family is prepared for Paul's funeral. Elizabeth calls the Todds and asks them to come. Carolyn becomes distraught and says that she doesn't care what the autopsy said, that she's sure her father was murdered. Elizabeth takes her into the drawing room to console her. Barnabas comes and tells Roger he's glad they're haven't left yet because he wants to go to the funeral too. He then tells Roger that there's been another mysterious death like Paul's in town, that this time it's Sheriff Davenport.

Jeb returns to the shop and is angered to find that the Todds are not there, angrily screaming that he told them they were not to leave without asking him. Then he finds a note they left for him telling him they went to Paul's funeral...

At the funeral, unbeknownst to anyone, Jeb spies on Carolyn from behind the gravestone of Jenny Collins...

Barnabas goes to the shop and asks Jeb why he summoned him (psychically, presumably). Jeb again orders Barnabas to expedite things with Carolyn. Barnabas tells him it's not time, that it would be difficult in her present mental state. Barnabas leaves. Outside, he thinks to himself, "I'll see to it that it will NEVER be Carolyn's time..."

Back at Collinwood, Barnabas suggest to Elizabeth that it would be a good idea to send Carolyn away to New York for a while, that the change of scenery would be good for her. Elizabeth finds this a strange idea (she has no knowledge of the Leviathan's plans for Carolyn). Carolyn hears Barnabas and tells him she's not going to go, that she's going to stay and that the first thing she's going to do is go and try to console Mrs. Davenport, the Sheriff's wife.

Having visited Mrs. Davenport, Carolyn goes to the shop to thank the Todds for coming to Paul's funeral, but finds that they are not there. She writes a note to them. Jeb comes down the stairs and introduces himself.

Later, Barnabas, having learned of their meeting, goes to the shop and tells Jeb it's still too early and he should not have caused Carolyn to come to the shop. Jeb replies that he didn't cause it, she came of her own free will because she was destined to, just as she was destined to marry him, to walk up the stairs and join him in his room and become one like him. He tells Barnabas he disagrees with him about it being too early, and announces that the wedding will be on Friday.

A time of great anguish for those who live at Collinwood, for the horror which is enveloping the Great House continues to grow. And with the advent of Jeb Hawkes, it promises never to stop. And Barnabas Collins, forced to become a Leviathan to save his Josette held hostage in the past, tries desperately to control the evil Jeb. Fighting for time until he can destroy those who threaten him and his world. But summoned to the village, Barnabas discovers that he has less time than the thinks.

David is brought back to Collinwood in a wheelchair, his leg in a cast. Maggie asks him what happened. He explains that he was riding his bicycle down Jones Street and a tall blond man jumped out of the bushes and caused him to fall and break his leg*.

At the antique shop, Jeb orders Barnabas to have Carolyn ready by Friday. Barnabas tries to convince him otherwise, saying that it's too early, but Jeb orders him to do so. He also tells him to have a room prepared for them at Collinwood, saying that they'll live there after the marriage. He tells him that certain people he doesn't want there - Julia, Maggie, Amy, Mrs. Johnson - will have to be eliminated. Seeing a look of reluctance on Barnabas' face, he threatens him by reminding him that if he doesn't follow orders, he'll be turned back into a vampire and that a terrible fate will await Josette, who's still in Hazor's hands. David comes into the antique shop, sees Jeb and shouts, "YOU! YOUR THE ONE WHO DID THIS TO ME!". Barnabas becomes angry with Jeb, but Jeb merely remarks that it was a necessary punishment.

Maggie and Julia are at Collinwood wondering where David went. David returns home. Maggie tells David to go up to his room.

David goes upstairs on crutches and finds Jeb waiting for him in his room. Jeb tells him he hopes he understands why he had to punish him. David replies that he does. He tells David he remembers how he gave him that radio when he was Alexander, and gives him his watch as a gift. Maggie comes in, sees Jeb and, recognizing him from David's earlier description, screams, "You! You're the one who caused this!". Jeb admits that he had, and explains that he came to apologize, saying he snuck in because he was afraid they wouldn't let him in because he ran away from the accident. Maggie angrily tells him to leave and escorts him out.

Julia, in the drawing room, hears Maggie shouting at Jeb as she's escorting him down. Maggie is surprised to find that Julia and Jeb are acquainted with one another. Julia shakes hands with Jeb and sees his birthmark, which she didn't see before because of the watch, which he no longer has on...

After Jeb leaves, Maggie tells Julia that she doesn't trust Jeb, and adds that there's something about his eyes that reminds her of Michael. She goes up to check on David. Julia calls Quentin and tells him she needs his help and asks him to come over. He does. They go to the cemetery and dig up Michael Hackett's grave.

Maggie tries to tell David that Jeb is a suspicious man and that he shouldn't trust him, but David just tells her that he likes him.

At the cemetery, Julia and Quentin open Michael's coffin..

After Maggie finishes with David, she comes downstairs and finds Barnabas there. He tells her that it's bad for Carolyn staying here and tells her to try to convince her to leave for awhile. Maggie agrees. After she leaves, Barnabas wonders whether he should have involved her, but concludes that he had no other choice. Julia returns and tells Barnabas she's got to talk to him. He replies that he doesn't want to involve her. She replies that she's already involved, that she's just had Michael's grave opened and found it empty, that she's seen the birthmarks on all three and know they are one and the same. She tells Barnabas he'd better tell her everything. He replies, "All right, Julia. I'll tell you everything..."

* David Henesy really did break his leg. This was written into the storyline.

This will be an eventful night at Collinwood. For Julia Hoffman has learned more about the menace that threatens the Collins family. And on this night, she will finally find out the secret of what happened in the year 1897, and how Barnabas Collins become the unwilling pawn of a mysterious and evil people.

Barnabas takes Julia back to the old house to tell her everything. He starts by recounting how he went to Tate's cottage and finding it burned up, how he had an argument with an angry Tate, angry because all his things had been destroyed, how Tate admitted that he had stolen Quentin's portrait, how he thought he had convinced Tate to paint another painting of Quentin but did not show up later as he had promised.

Julia interrupts and tells Barnabas that she had found Tate a few weeks ago. Barnabas remarks that he is surprised that Tate's been alive all this time. Julia tells him that Tate's no longer alive, that he was killed, ironically, by a werewolf, Chris. Julia surprises Barnabas again by telling him that Quentin's portrait had not been destroyed, that she found it and has it now. Barnabas asks who had it. Julia replies, "Angelique". Barnabas is stunned. Julia explains how Angelique got married, renounced all her powers, and gave her the portrait if she would agree to leave her alone and not get her involved with the Collins, with whom she no longer want to have anything to do. Barnabas is obviously interested in all this, but Julia firmly tells him that Angelique is not important now and asks him to continue his story.

Barnabas explains how he then went to the old house where he had left Lady Kitty Hampshire and found her being pulled into the picture of Josette, how he grabbed hold of her and found himself pulled back too and how he found himself back in the 18th century on the night Josette was to die, how he managed to save her, how he arranged to meet with her after making some arrangements to go away together forever, how on his way back to her he found the Leviathan altar that wasn't there before and how Haza and Oberon made him a slave of the Leviathan, a nearly extinct ancient race whose plan is to use him to bring one of their kind to the future where it would marry a human and start the Leviathan race anew, how they are keeping him in line by keeping Josette hostage and also threatening to turn him into a vampire again if he does not obey. He reveals to her how he brought the essence back in the Leviathan box, how they enslaved the Todds, how they have the power to enslave humans by dreams, how they tried to enslave her, Julia, but how she proved to be immune, that Elizabeth, David and Amy were not immune and are now Leviathan s laves, which was why he had to bring her to the old house to talk, how the essence has been growing, how it's false human form has been growing too, and been Joseph, Alexander, Michael and now Jeb. He tells her that Carolyn is in particular danger, because she is the one they plan to marry Jeb to. He explains how the thing, in the form of Jeb, has now become uncontrollably evil, not even following the rules of the Leviathans, how he killed Paul and Sheriff Davenport and how he has the power to raise the dead to be slaves.

Meanwhile, in the cemetery, Sheriff Davenport (1935-1970) comes out of his grave..

On this night, as darkness hangs like the cloak of death over the Great House at Collinwood, Barnabas Collins has last told Julia Hoffman the nature of the evil which threatens everyone at Collinwood. During the past 48 hours, two people have died at the hands of this evil. Julia and Barnabas feel instinctively that something even more hideous than death is going to happen before this night is over.

Sheriff Davenport comes out of his grave and walks away...

Carolyn is in the drawing room of Collinwood. Maggie comes into the room. Carolyn talks to Maggie about her father Paul, saying, "Everyone says he came back here because he was disturbed, but I think he came back because he loved me". Maggie asks Carolyn if anyone knows what Paul was so disturbed about. Carolyn tells her, "No, just that he was very frightened of something". She vows to find his killer. Maggie advises her to leave that to the police and tells her she should find something to occupy her mind. Carolyn tells her she's thinking of going back to work at the Antique Shop. Carolyn tells Maggie she's going out for some fresh air. Maggie leaves, saying she has to go over the children's schoolwork.

Meanwhile Sheriff Davenport is lurking about outside...

Carolyn goes outside onto the terrace. She hears a noise, and calls out, "Who's out there?" Jeb steps out from behind some trees and replies, "Hello! If I frightened the lady I humbly beg forgiveness!" She angrily tells him it's very bad taste for him to come and try to romance her so soon after the death of her father. He apologizes, but then tells her that it's fate that they've met and says, "And what will happen tomorrow will be fate". Carolyn asks, "What happens tomorrow?" Jeb boldly announces "We're going to be married!". Carolyn says, "You mean just like that, you decide we're going to be married??? That's absurd" and tells him, "If you don't leave, I'll have you thrown off the property!" Jeb leaves. Davenport continues to lurk around...

Maggie is inside. Carolyn comes back in. She is visibly upset. Maggie asks her what's the matter, but Carolyn denies anything is and runs upstairs. Barnabas comes in. Maggie asks him, "Did you go by the terrace on your way in?" Barnabas replies, "No, I took another route. Why?" Maggie replies that Carolyn just came in from the terrace and something out there upset her. She tells Barnabas Carolyn plans to start working at the antique shop again. Barnabas, aghast, says, "I've got to get her out of town!" Maggie asks, "Can you tell me why?" Barnabas replies, "No".

Jeb returns to the antique shop. With him is Sheriff Davenport. Jeb asks, "Do you know who I am?" Davenport replies, "Yes". Jeb asks, "Do you know why I've brought you back?" Davenport replies, "No". Jeb explains, "To serve me! You are the first of many!" He warns Davenport, "If you don't follow my orders, I'll send you back to your grave - forever!"

Some flowers arrive at Collinwood for Carolyn. She reads the card from Jeb apologizing for being so impetuous earlier, "My heart and my head went in separate directions. I followed my heart". It asks her to meet him for a date tomorrow night at 8 O'clock. Barnabas comes into the room and remarks the the flowers are lovely. Carolyn asks, "What are you doing here?" Barnabas replies, "I just wanted to see if you were all right. I see you have an admirer". Carolyn replies, "Yes, but I don't know if I should be happy about that or not. It's an impetuous young man named Jeb Hawkes". After she leaves, Barnabas thinks to himself, "If I don't stop Jeb, there's no hope for Carolyn! I must kill him! Now!"

At the antique shop, Jeb is talking on the phone to Phillip, angrily telling him, "You can stay out, OK? I'm not a little boy anymore. You don't have to look after me!" Barnabas comes into the antique shop. He tells Jeb, "I'd like to come to an understanding with you". Jeb asks, "What kind?" Barnabas replies, "Simply that we become friends". Jeb asks why he's decided to do this. Barnabas replies, "Our discord is preventing us from reaching our goal". Jeb accepts his offer. Barnabas says, "I'm so glad you've accepted. Let's seal the occasion with a drink. I think the Todds keep a bottle in the back room. I'll look". Barnabas goes into the back room, gets a bottle of liquor, pours out two glasses, then takes a small bottle out of his pockets and pours some of it into one of the glasses. He goes back out into the front room, gives on of the glasses to Jeb and toasts, "To our success!". Jeb suddenly says, "Wait a minute!" Barnabas, alarmed, asks, "What's the matter, Jeb?". Jeb replies, "I want to propose a toast. To Carolyn and her future with me!". Barnabas repeats, "To Carolyn, and her future with you!" They drink...

This will be a fateful day for one person who lives in the Great House of Collinwood. Carolyn Stoddard still does not know that she is soon to become the victim of an evil plan. But Barnabas Collins is only too aware of the terrible fate that awaits him. And now he has embarked on a desperate plan of his own: to save her from the man who threatens her life.

Barnabas waits for something to happen, but nothing does. Jeb just says, "That was good! Let's have another!", but Barnabas replies, "No, I only have one drink at a time". Jeb starts to become suspicious and asks, "What's caused this mood change?" and asks, "Did you put something in this drink?" Barnabas replies, "Jeb, you can't keep suspecting everyone of acting against you. Why do you dislike me so much? Is it because I represent a symbol of authority over you?" Jeb replies, "You have no authority over me!" then continues, "Let's go over the plan for tonight. You are to bring Carolyn here a 8 o'clock tonight and bring her upstairs to be prepared for the wedding". Barnabas agrees to do so, "I'll meet you at 8 o'clock".

At the old house, Julia is telling Quentin that all the children at the antique shop were one and the same. Quentin is incredulous, "How could he have grown from an infant to a man in just a few weeks?" Julia replies, "He's not human". She tells him about the box Barnabas brought back and how it contained an "essence", and how that essence has grown and taken human form. She tells him, "The Leviathans are creatures who lived before the time of Man, they're evil, and plan to take over the world again". She tells him about their plans for Carolyn. Barnabas comes in. He tells them that he has failed, "I put enough poison in that drink to kill a dozen men, but it had no effect on him". He tells them about Jeb's plan for Carolyn tonight and says, "We have to get Carolyn to leave Collinsport". Julia asks, "How can we convince her to do that?" Barnabas notes, "By force, if necessary". He suggests that they enlist Angelique's help and asks Julia where she is. Julia reminds him that she promised not to tell, but Barnabas tells her, "Carolyn's life is in danger! Where is she?"

At Little Windward Island, Angelique is talking on the phone to her husband Sky, saying, "But I haven't seen you in a week! I miss you! All right, if you promise to be home after the meeting". The doorbell rings. Angelique goes and opens to door. She exclaims, "Barnabas! What are you doing here?" He replies, "I have an urgent matter to discuss with you". Angelique angrily remarks, "I don't have to ask you how you found out where I was? Julia must have told you! She gave he me her word she wouldn't! " Barnabas replies, "I forced her to break her word". Angelique begs Barnabas to leave her alone, saying she has a new life here, that she's happy now. Barnabas tells her he needs her help. She tells him she can't because she's renounced all her powers. He tells her she won't need to, that Carolyn's life is in danger if she remains at Collinwood and she only need to let Carolyn stay at her house for a few days. Angelique asks, "Why is Carolyn's life in danger?" Barnabas asks, "Have you ever heard of the Leviathans?" She replies that she has, that they're absolutely evil and asks what he had to do with them. Barnabas explains...

Quentin goes to Collinwood and thanks Carolyn for helping him regain his memory. He tells her he want to tell her something and asks her to step into the drawing room. There, he tells her he's a distant relative, the great-grandson of the Quentin Collins who lived in 1897. She asks, "Did you know that when we first met?" He replies that he did. She asks, "Then why did you introduce yourself as Grant Douglas?" He lies that he's an author and that's one of his pseudonyms. Jeb Hawkes boldly lets himself into Collinwood, comes into the drawing room and tells Carolyn to meet him at 8:00 tonight at the Old House for their date. She asks why the Old House. He tells her he has to pick up some stuff for the Todd's there.

Barnabas finishes telling Angelique about his involvement with the Leviathans. He tells her that until recently, they had complete control of him, but now he's free of their influence and will fight them. Angelique asks, "If I refuse to help, will you tell my husband about me?" Barnabas replies, "No, I'll leave you in peace". Angelique agrees to help, saying Sky will be away for a week and Carolyn can stay during that time. She warns him that although she has renounced the use of all her powers, she still has all of them, that if he does anything to ruin he life, he'll be sorry...

At Collinwood, Barnabas goes over his plan with Julia and Quentin. They'll lie to Carolyn that a close friend of Paul's has arrived in Portland and needs a ride to Collinwood, that Julia is going to go and pick him up and they want her to come along to keep Julia company. The car is to break down at an appointed spot... Quentin interrupts and asks why they don't just let him go to the antique shop and take care of Jeb personally. Barnabas tells him that that would be unwise, that while Jeb can turn from his real self to his human form anywhere, he can only change from his human form into his Leviathan form in a special room at the shop, thus it would be foolhardy to confront him there. They look at clock in the foyer and see that it's 6:45. They wonder where Carolyn could be. The phone rings. It's Jeb, for Barnabas. He tells her that he didn't trust him and changed his plans for Carolyn, that he called her and told her to come meet him at the shop at 7 o'clock. At the antique shop, Carolyn arrives. Jeb gloats to Barnabas that Carolyn is there and hangs up.

At the antique shop, Carolyn asks Jeb what his plans for the night are. He tells her he has to wait awhile for the Todds to come back. He picks up a porcelain figurine and drops it onto the floor, letting it break. Carolyn, aghast, notes, "That's an antique!" He tells her that he's a free spirit and does whatever he feels like. He gives her a similar figurine and tells her to "liberate" herself by letting it drop. Carolyn lets it drop... Jeb pours two drinks, drugging one of them. They drink. Carolyn immediately loses consciousness. Jeb picks her up says, "You're all mine, Carolyn! This is the start of your new life..."
