A night of terrible panic on the great estate of Collinwood. For this is the night Jeb vowed to carry Carolyn to his room and make her his own. And Barnabas, knowing that she will become the breathing monster that Jeb is when he is not in human form, must stop her from going. But despite every effort Barnabas and Quentin can make, they find to their horror that Carolyn has gone to meet Jeb an hour before the time that had been arranged.

Carolyn drinks the drink Jeb gives her and almost immediately loses consciousness. He picks her up and starts to carry her up the stairs but Quentin comes into the shop and orders him to put her down. They stop. Jeb grabs a knife, but Quentin manages to disarm him. He then picks up a vase and knocks him out. He takes Carolyn and leaves.

At Collinwood, Barnabas nervously awaits Quentin, wondering if he should have gone with him. He decides to go and see what happened. Maggie comes down the stairs and volunteers to help, but Barnabas tells her not to and asks her to go on the errand Elizabeth had asked her to do. Elizabeth comes down and Maggie leaves. Elizabeth tells Barnabas that she is upset that almost everyone has seen 'their leader' in his new form except her. There's a knock on the door. Elizabeth answers it and finds Quentin carrying an unconscious Carolyn....

At the antique shop, Jeb regains consciousness and vows to get even with Quentin.

While Elizabeth is upstairs with Carolyn, Barnabas tells Quentin he should have gone with him, but Quentin replies that it's best if they think he's still a Leviathan so he can find out what their plans are.

Elizabeth is upstairs watching over Carolyn, who's unconscious in bed. Barnabas comes in and tells her Julia's on her way. He tells her that maybe she should go and thank Quentin, who told her that Carolyn had fainted at the antique shop and he happened to be there. Elizabeth tells Barnabas she's uneasy about Quentin. Barnabas replies that it's not his fault that he's a descendent of the ghost. She admits that he's right.

Outside in the woods, Jeb spies on Collinwood. Elizabeth comes down to the drawing room and thanks Quentin. Barnabas comes back down. Quentin excuses himself and leaves Collinwood. Barnabas tells Elizabeth that Julia has examined Carolyn and says that her fainting was caused by stress over Paul's death and strongly advised that she be taken away from Collinwood for a rest. He tells her that he has arranged for her to stay at a nearby island and that they are to leave tonight.

In the woods, Jeb is hiding behind a tree. Quentin passes him on his way to Collinsport but doesn't see him. Maggie walks by on her way back to Collinwood. She is startled when Jeb suddenly comes out from behind the tree. He starts to talk to her. She tries to get away by saying she's got to get back to Collinwood before the storm starts, but he grabs her arm and says "Wait a minute..".

Carolyn tells them she doesn't want to go away, that she wants to stay at Collinwood and find out what really happened to Paul.

At the shop, Jeb picks up the mess caused by the fight. Barnabas comes in and tells him that Maggie is missing, that from recent experience, he knows that when something strange happens, he is usually responsible and demands to know where she is. Jeb denies knowing anything about her, saying she's not his type. After Barnabas leaves, Jeb shouts, "He's in love with her!" and laughs uproariously.

In a crypt in the cemetery, Maggie is lying on a slab....

David Henesy as David Collins
Ed Riley as Sheriff Davenport

The night has been long and anxious for Barnabas Collins. Maggie Evans is missing, and no matter what he suspects, Barnabas can prove nothing. And so Maggie remains in the hands of a merciless enemy, who when he was a child called Michael, tried to kill her, and came close to succeeding. Now that same enemy calls himself Jeb, and he is bigger, stronger, and far more dangerous, surrounded by allies as merciless as himself.

A man comes to the antique store and identifies himself as Bruno (Michael Stroka). He tells Jeb he is a Leviathan and proves that this is the case by showing him the Naga ring that he is wearing. He offers his services and asks what he can do.

At Collinwood, Barnabas talks to the authorities to see if there is any word about Maggie. There isn't. David rolls into the room in a wheelchair. Barnabas remarks that it's too bad what happened. David replies that he deserved it. Barnabas retorts that he didn't, that Jeb was impulsive in what he did, and that that impulsiveness is a weakness. He asks David to look in the book and see if Jeb has any other weaknesses. David asks why. Barnabas replies that they'll need to know Jeb's weaknesses to protect him from them.

Maggie awakens and finds herself in the crypt and wonders what she is doing in there. She tries the door and finds it locked. Then it opens and Sheriff Davenport comes in. She screams, "But you're dead ! You're dead!".

Jeb finishes giving orders to Bruno and asks him if he understands what he is to do to Maggie. He replies that he does.

David, looking through the book, finds a weakness...

Bruno goes to the tomb, where he finds Sheriff Davenport guarding Maggie. He orders the sheriff out of the room, then pulls a knife and tries to get Maggie to tell him all she knows about Barnabas, but she refuses to tell him anything.

David goes to the antique store and tells Jeb about Barnabas telling him to look for a weakness. He tells him that he found one but came here with it instead. He tells him that there is one thing that he, Jeb, is vulnerable to: the wolf that walks like a man. A look of fear crosses Jeb's face, but then quickly disappears when he assures himself that there can't be a creature like that within a hundred miles. Jeb tells David that he has done well, and tells him not to tell Barnabas. He tells him he is suspicious of Barnabas, and orders David to keep an eye on him. Bruno returns, and David leaves. Bruno tells Jeb he couldn't get anything out of Maggie. Jeb replies that he knows what to do next. He tells Bruno that he is to go to Portsmouth. Bruno asks why. Jeb tells him that there might be some questions, and he wants to make sure that the answers are right...

Jeb goes to the tomb, carrying the Naga box with him. He orders the sheriff out of the room and orders Maggie to open the box...

Christopher Pennock as Jeb Hawkes
Lisa Richards as Sabrina Stuart

A night of panic for Barnabas Collins. Maggie Evans is missing, and though he suspects Jeb and the Leviathans have taken her in retaliation for his hiding Carolyn, he cannot make Jeb admit it. And Barnabas knows he must proceed very carefully. If the Leviathans find out he is working against them, Josette will die in the past, and Barnabas himself will become a vampire. Little does he know that in a lonely cemetery, not far from Collinwood, there is an ancient crypt, and in it Maggie Evans faces her enemies. A man she does not know, a man she has thought dead, and finally Jeb himself.

Maggie refuses to open the box. Jeb threatens to turn her into a creature like the sheriff if she does not. She does. He tells her to look inside. She does. He asks her what she sees. She tells him it's empty. He tells her it's not empty, and asks her if she feels any different. She tells him that she's no longer afraid of him. He tells her that the box was full of peace, and that she's now one of them, that there are many of them, Elizabeth, David, Barnabas, etc.

Barnabas, in the foyer at Collinwood, calls the authorities again to check up on Maggie. Again they have found nothing. Julia suggests that he have them check the antique shop, but Barnabas vetoes the idea, saying that he isn't sure that Jeb had anything to do with her disappearance, and that he doesn't want to do anything to let the Leviathans know that he's no longer one of them, that they can only be defeated from the inside...

Jeb asks Maggie to tell him all she knows about Barnabas, but she tells him she knows nothing. He asks her to tell all she knows about Quentin, but she tells him that all she knows is that he had had an accident.

Barnabas and Julia continue to ponder what to do about Maggie when Julia notices an envelope lying on the floor. They open it and find that it is a note from Maggie to Barnabas saying that she'd be away for a few days because she's gone to visit an aunt who's come to Portland from Montreal. Barnabas is suspicious and asks how they could have missed the letter lying in plain sight on the floor. Julia suggests that perhaps it was on the table and just fell to the floor now. Barnabas starts to call the Inn in Portland mentioned in the note, but Maggie suddenly walks in through the front door. She apologizes for any inconvenience she may have caused by her sudden departure and tells Barnabas she has something important to talk to him about privately. She goes upstairs with her bag. Barnabas tells Julia she is still suspicious. Julia tells him not to be, that they have something more immediate to worry about, that tonight is the night of the full moon, and that Chris'll be turning into a werewolf...

At the cottage, Chris is having the same thought, looking at an alarm clock noting that it's only 5 hours till sunset. He walks out of the cottage to go get Julia to take him to Windcliff, but is surprised to run into Sabrina. They go back into the cottage. He begs her to leave, but she refuses. She is carrying a parcel with her. She tells him to open it. He does. It is some sort of flower. She tells him it's a 'Moon Poppy'. She explains that she's been doing some research on lycanthropy, and found an article in a British Journal by a scientist who claims to have found a cure in the moon poppy and wrote a letter to him and he sent her one. She tells him that the poppy will only bloom when the moon is full, and that he must eat it at that time. She leaves.

Barnabas goes to the cottage and tells Chris he must go to Windcliff. Chris refuses, saying he wants to stay here and try the poppy. Barnabas tells him they can bring the poppy to Windcliff and then points out a flaw in his plan, that he'll be a wolf when the poppy is in bloom and that he won't want to eat it then. Chris retorts that that's exactly why he wants to stay here, that here, in familiar surroundings, he thinks he might remember...

Barnabas returns to Collinwood and tells Julia about Chris. Julia leaves to try to talk to him. Maggie comes down and asks Barnabas where he's been, that she's wanted to talk to him. They go into the drawing room. She tells him about being kidnapped by Jeb, that he made her open a box and that something was supposed to happen, but nothing did, and that she went along and pretended something did and that Jeb apparently now thinks that she is under his control. Barnabas realizes that they can use this to their advantage. Julia returns and tells Barnabas that she could not convince Chris. Barnabas tells Julia that they now have a new ally and points to Maggie...

At the cottage, the poppy blooms. Chris turns into a werewolf, and reaches out for the poppy...

The full moon has begun its rise, and Chris Jennings is about to take the most desperate gamble of his life. Alone in his cottage on the great estate, he waits for the moon to change him into a werewolf, hoping he can retain his human intelligence and will long enough to do what must be done to end the curse. For this flower, brought to him by Sabrina Stuart, is the legendary moon poppy, and if he can succeed in eating its blossom, he will shed the hated animal form forever.

The wolf reaches out for the poppy, but then suddenly grabs it and hurls it to the ground instead of eating it and runs out of the cottage.

Jeb is talking to Maggie on the phone. He is upset that she has not managed to learn from Barnabas where Carolyn is and tells her to try harder. Bruno returns and tells him he has taken care of things in Portland.

Barnabas goes to the cottage and finds the poppy lying on the floor and picks it up. Sabrina shows up, sees him holding it and, realizing that Chris has not eaten it, becomes hysterical. Barnabas tries to calm her down, but she screams that she must find him and runs out of the cottage into the woods. Barnabas tries to follow her.

At the antique shop, Jeb hears the werewolf howling and is terrified by it. Bruno asks what's the matter. Jeb explains that it's a werewolf and that it's the one thing that can destroy him. Bruno pulls out a gun and tells him that he'll take care of it. Jeb tries to explain that an ordinary gun won't work, that only silver bullets will work, but Bruno rushes out without heeding his warning.

Barnabas, having been unsuccessful in finding Sabrina, returns to Collinwood. The phone rings. He answers. It's Angelique, asking to come to South Windward Island. He asks her what she wants, but she tells him she can only tell him in person.

Sabrina continues to wander through the woods looking for Chris.

Jeb is in the shop, still terrified by the howling of the wolf. Barnabas drops by to see him and asks what's the matter. Jeb explains that there's a werewolf in the vicinity and tells him he'll give him a test of loyalty: kill the werewolf.

Sabrina runs into the werewolf in the woods. They stare at each other. Suddenly, Bruno appears and shoots the werewolf point blank. The werewolf flees. Sabrina is distraught and cries, over and over again, " Why did you do that? He wouldn't have hurt me..."

Barnabas arrives at South Windward Island. Angelique tells him that he'll have to find another place for Elizabeth and Carolyn. Barnabas is shocked and says, "I thought that you said you talked to your husband about them and got his permission for them to stay as long as necessary..". She answers that that is true, but that her husband is not the problem, that earlier, Elizabeth started staring at her and remarked, "I know I've seen you somewhere before..", that it's only a matter of time before she recognizes her as Cassandra. Angelique asks Barnabas to take them away tonight. Barnabas tells her he'll need time to make arrangements, and he can't until tomorrow. Angelique agrees, "All right. Tomorrow, then..."

Bruno returns to the shop and tells Jeb that he was right about the bullets, that he shot the werewolf but that he didn't seem to do much harm. He tells him that he discovered something very important, a girl who seemed to know the werewolf and through whom it might be tracked down. He tells him that her name is Sabrina Stuart and that he escorted her back to the Collinsport Inn where she said she lived with her brother, who was not there, that he suspects the brother. After Bruno leaves, Jeb receives a telephone call. The caller tells him that Carolyn is at South Windward Island. Jeb is overjoyed. He continues to talk to the caller and answers, "Tomorrow? No, not tomorrow. TONIGHT!!".

Carolyn Stoddard has been away from the great house at Collinwood for almost a week now. No one knows better than Barnabas Collins of the terrible fate she would have met had she not left Collinwood when she did: marriage to Jeb Hawkes in his true nature, as the creature in the upstairs room of the antique shop. Thus far, only Barnabas knows where Carolyn is being hidden.

Carolyn is talking with Elizabeth, arguing that she's had enough rest and that it's time to return to Collinwood. Angelique comes into the room and Elizabeth stares at her again, saying she's sure she's seen her somewhere before. Angelique is 'saved' by a telephone call from Sky in which he asks her to come pick him up at the Logansport airport. She leaves.

A little after Angelique leaves, the phone rings again. Elizabeth answers. It's Jeb. He tells her to return to Collinwood alone immediately. He tells her she is to make anyone who's around think it's Mrs. Johnson who called. Elizabeth hangs up and tells Carolyn that she has to go back to Collinwood, that Mrs. Johnson just called and reminded her that there are some company papers she has to sign by 9 am tomorrow.

In the antique store, Jeb looks at a picture of Carolyn and says, "Soon, you will be mine...", goes into his room and transforms into his true form..

Elizabeth says goodbye to Carolyn and leaves. Carolyn takes a book from the bookcase and tries to read, but can only think of Jeb. She wonders why she is so obsessed by someone she met only a few times. The phone rings. Carolyn answers. It's for Sky. She takes a message. Suddenly, strange things begin to happen. A picture falls from the wall. She puts it back up. Then the door blows open. She shuts it. The lights go out and she hears a crashing sound. Frightened, she flees upstairs and hides in her room. She continues to hear strange noises. Then she hears the sound of classical music coming from somewhere. She goes out into the hall and hears that it's coming from the room directly opposite in the hallway. She can see the shadow of someone on the slatted door and asks "Who's there?". The door opens. It's Sky. They go back downstairs. He apologizes to her for frightening her. Outside, Jeb, in his true form, is breathing ominously. Carolyn asks Sky where Angelique is, saying she thought she was going to pick him up. He replies that Angelique is not here, that she was supposed to pick him up, but that she didn't make it in time, that she must have been held up in the storm or something, and he had to come back because he was expecting an important telephone call and called a taxi. Carolyn suddenly remembers and tells him about the call earlier. He leaves to return the call and Carolyn dozes off in a chair. She has a dream in which she is in the antique shop and Jeb appears to her. She mentions that they have not known each other long. He replies that they have, that he can remember her holding and caressing him. Carolyn, puzzled, replies that she doesn't remember doing this. He shows her his birthmark and reveals to her that he was Joseph, and Alexander, and Michael.. She is stunned and asks how this is possible. He holds up his hands and tells her to come to him. She sees that his hands are covered with blood and awakens screaming.

Sky asks her what's wrong. She tells him she had a bad dream. He takes her up to her bedroom.

Sky comes downstairs and opens a door.....

Back from a commercial break, we see a trail of slimy looking footsteps starting from the door which Sky opened and going up the stairs....

Carolyn starts to doze off, but is awakened by the sound of heavy footsteps. Frightened, she cries out for Sky. The bedroom doors blow open. She screams.....

An urgent phone call from a strange young man has brought Elizabeth Stoddard back to the great house of Collinwood. She is not aware that the purpose of the call was to get her to leave her daughter, Carolyn, alone in another house, on an island fifty miles distant. And now, in that house, Carolyn Stoddard is in the greatest danger she has ever known.

Carolyn screams at what she sees and faints. The creature stops and turns into human form. Jeb walks up to Carolyn and says, "I couldn't go through with it...". Sky comes in and asks what happened. Jeb replies that nothing did, that he couldn't go through with it because Carolyn was terrified of him, and he doesn't want it that way, that he wants her to want him. Sky asks what about when she wakes up. Jeb assures him that she won't remember anything when she awakens. He leaves, saying he's going to Collinwood to finally meet his future mother-in-law.

At Collinwood, Elizabeth hears the werewolf lurking about outside. She goes into the foyer and picks up the phone and is about to make a call when suddenly Bruno appears and tells her to put down the phone. Elizabeth demands to know who he is. Bruno identifies himself and shows her the ring. He tells her Jeb's orders are that she talk to no one. The wolf howls again. Bruno tells Elizabeth that it's a danger to Jeb and goes out after it.

Carolyn awakens and finds Sky standing over her. She asks what happened. He tells her she was sleepwalking and tripped over something and knocked herself unconscious.

Jeb comes to Collinwood. He asks Elizabeth where Bruno is. Elizabeth tells him that Bruno went out to hunt the werewolf.

In the woods, Bruno just misses crossing paths with the werewolf...

Jeb asks Elizabeth whose idea it was to take Carolyn to Little Windward Island. Elizabeth replies that it was Barnabas'. Bruno returns and tells them he couldn't find the werewolf. Jeb tells Elizabeth that he wants to talk to Bruno privately. She goes upstairs. Jeb tells Bruno that he has a personal score to settle, that they have a traitor on their hands: Barnabas. Bruno warns Jeb against going out where the werewolf may be lurking, but Jeb doesn't heed his warning, pointing out that he, Bruno, has already said that he's searched the area and didn't find the werewolf.

Jeb walks through the woods on his way to the old house. Just as he gets near the end, he hears the wolf stalking him and runs to the old house. He manages to get inside and lock the doors. He cries out to Barnabas for help. He hears the wolf again and looks toward the window. The wolf is looking at him from outside. It jumps through the window...

Soon it will be dawn. But in the short time that remains of this night, one young man will experience a kind of terror he has never known before. The evil and mysterious Jeb Hawkes fears only one creature on Earth: the wolf who walks like a man. And it is that creature who will find him this night.

The wolf attacks Jeb. Jeb tries to flee up the stairs but the wolf catches knocks him unconscious. Luckily for Jeb, just as the wolf is about to kill him, the sun rises and the wolf staggers to the living room writhing with transformation pains, falls to the floor unconscious and turns back into Chris Jennings...

Barnabas comes in and sees Chris and Jeb, both unconscious. Chris moans and regains consciousness. He sees Jeb and says, "Oh, no...". Barnabas tells him not to worry about that and to go home and come back later and he'll explain everything.

Jeb regains consciousness and finds Barnabas. At first he is furious and demands to know why he didn't come when he cried for help, but Barnabas tells him he wasn't in the house when he called and lies that he saved his life, that when he came in, he found the werewolf just about to kill him but drove him away. Jeb, dubious, asks how he managed to drive it away. Barnabas tells him he used his walking stick, the head of which is made of silver, to drive it away. Jeb tells Barnabas that he had suspected him of being disloyal, but that he must have been wrong because he could easily have let the wolf kill him. He asks him why he sent Carolyn to Little Windward Island, then. Barnabas replies that he thought he, Jeb, was going too fast. Jeb tells him he now agrees, that he learned where she was and went there last night and couldn't go through with it.

Angelique returns to the Rumson residence on Little Windward Island. She is furious that he was not there when she went to pick him up and demands to know what happened. Sky lies that he was making some phone calls while waiting and learned from the secretary of a client that he was going to call the Rumson residence and he rushed home. Angelique believes this. Barnabas comes and tells Angelique that things have changed and he has to talk to her alone. Sky leaves and Barnabas tells Angelique what happened and tells her he's come to take Carolyn away.

After Barnabas and Carolyn leave, Sky tells Angelique he can tell from her nervous behavior that she's keeping secrets from him, that she must not be telling him the whole truth about why Carolyn was here. Angelique at first refuses to tell him, but when he tells her that keeping secrets from one another will be devastating to their relationship, she tells him about how Carolyn being in danger from a cult called the Leviathans, how Barnabas was once part of this cult, but no longer is and is now doing everything he can to defeat them...

Sky goes to the antique shop and tells Jeb what Angelique told him. He asks Jeb what he's going to do. Jeb asks, "Have you ever seen a vampire?". Sky answers no. Jeb continues, "We'll, soon you will..."

Chris, all cleaned up and dressed in fresh clothes, goes to the old house to see Barnabas. He asks, "Well, is that man dead?". Barnabas replies that he wishes he were. He explains that that man is a great danger to him, Chris, that he'll do everything in his power to find and kill the werewolf and warns Chris to be careful. He tells Chris that the man is evil and a danger to everyone....

Jeb, holding some sort of small animal cage, goes to the cemetery and finds the grave of a "Richard Fairbanks, 1730-1770" and remarks, "That's the one. Hanged for murdering his wife and children. He'll do..". He chants an incantation over the grave and soon a bat flies from the distance into the cage, which he closes....

Barnabas Collins has seemingly proved his loyalty to the Leviathans by saving Jeb from the werewolf. But their truce is an uneasy one. While it lasts, Barnabas hopes to marshal his strength, unaware that on this night, Jeb is in the graveyard, ready to summon the evil creature that can turn Barnabas into a vampire forever.

At Collinwood, Barnabas tells Julia he's managed to convince Jeb that he's still a loyal Leviathan.

Jeb returns to the antique shop with the bat.

Barnabas tells Julia he's having difficulty fighting the Leviathan because of their claim that they're holding Josette hostage and that he wants to have a sťance to contact her. He asks who else is in the house. Julia tells him that Maggie is. They get her and have the sťance. Josette speaks through Maggie. Barnabas asks her if she's being held hostage by the Leviathans. Josette replies that she doesn't know who the 'Leviathans' are. Barnabas asks her what happened to her. She replies that she waited for him, but when he didn't come, she took poison in despair. Barnabas tells her he doesn't believe her, that this is a trick of the Leviathans. Josette replies that if he doesn't, come to her grave tonight. The sťance ends. Barnabas remarks that if it is indeed true that Josette is not being held hostage by the Leviathans, they can start their battle against them immediately. Maggie asks how. Barnabas replies that they will first destroy the Leviathan box so that the Leviathans will no longer be able to enslave new members and they'll know who they'll be fighting against. Carolyn comes into the room and makes a call to Jeb making a date for tonight.

Maggie goes to the antique shop. Jeb asks what she has learned about Barnabas. Maggie replies that she still hasn't learned anything yet. Jeb gets angry, but Philip reminds him that it's time for him to go to Carolyn and he leaves. Maggie tells Philip that Barnabas wants to see him alone in the woods.

Philip goes to the woods as instructed. At first, Barnabas tries to fool Philip into stealing the box for him, but in talking to him realizes that Philip has come to hate the Jeb and the Leviathans as much as he does and tells him outright.

Jeb goes to Collinwood and meets Carolyn. They embrace and kiss..

Barnabas goes to Josette's grave. Her spirit appears to him and assures him that she is not being held prisoner, but that he is.. by her memory. She tells him to forget about her and find someone else. She gives him her ring to give to the new person and disappears. Barnabas is devastated.

Carolyn tells Jeb about the strange dream she had about him.

Philip goes to Jeb's room and searches for the box. He eventually finds it in an otherwise empty armoire. He takes it and leaves. But when he gets downstairs, the lights come on. Jeb is there. He says "Isn't it a little late to be going out, Phillip?"

This night at Collinwood, Barnabas Collins has reached the spirit of Josette, and learned from her that she is not a hostage to the Leviathans. Now he is free to fight the ruthless enemy, and as the first step, he has persuaded Philip Todd to steal the Leviathan Box.

Jeb tells Philip that he knows who he's taking the box to and not to worry - he's going to let him have it. Philip is surprised and asks what he means. Jeb replies that he always gives people what they want and what he, Philip has been asking for is death, and that he's going to give it to him. He picks up a heavy candlestick and prepares to kill Philip, but is interrupted by a knock on the door. Jeb puts the candlestick down and tells Philip he's lucky. Philip opens the door. The man introduces himself as Lawrence Guthrie, Special investigator from the state capital Augusta investigating the strange murders that have occurred in town. He asks Philip some questions about Paul Stoddard. Philip lies that although Paul Stoddard had come to the store on the night of his murder, he was only here for a few minutes. Guthrie asks Jeb what he was doing on that night. Jeb replies that he wasn't in town yet, that he's a photographer and was traveling the country taking pictures. As Guthrie is leaving, Philip desperately tells him he's going out too and will accompany him. Jeb 'reminds' Philip that Megan doesn't know he's going, obviously a veiled threat against Megan. Philip tells Guthrie. "Oh yes, Megan. I don't think I can go tonight.". Guthrie leaves. Jeb tells Philip not to be so frightened, he's decided not to kill him, that he has a better idea, that if he's ever disloyal again, MEGAN will be the one to suffer..

Amy and Carolyn are in the drawing room of Collinwood. Amy is drawing a picture of the Naga with crayons. Quentin comes in and Amy is terrified of him. Carolyn tries to convince her that she needn't be, that this isn't the same Quentin as the ghost, that he looks like him only because he's related to him.

Jeb tells Philip he thinks Guthrie is suspicious of him, that he could tell that from the way he was questioning him earlier...

From a phone booth somewhere, Guthrie makes a call to his office asking that they find out everything they can about a 'Jeb Hawkes'...

The next day, a frightened Amy goes to the antique shop and tells Jeb that she's afraid of Quentin, that she wasn't sure before, but that now she's sure he's the same man as the ghost. He asks why. She tells him about a dream she had last night. The dream is a flashback to something that happened with Quentin the ghost where originally the ghost had said, "Don't tell Barnabas, Julia or Maggie", but this time he said "Don't tell Barnabas, Julia, Maggie or Jeb". Jeb tells her not to worry about it. He'll take care of it. Jeb is about to leave, saying he's going to go see Carolyn, but Amy tells him, "Carolyn's busy. She talking to a Mr. Guthrie..".

At Collinwood, Guthrie is talking to Carolyn. The phone rings. Carolyn answers. The caller, Philip with his voice disguised, asks to talk to Guthrie. Carolyn gives the phone to him. Philip, no longer with his voice disguised, tells Guthrie to come to the shop, that there are some things he couldn't say to him before, things he can only tell him in private...

Guthrie goes to the antique shop. Philip tells him he's going to tell him all about the murders. Guthrie tells him to come down to the police station with him. Philip tells him to come upstairs and take a look inside the room at the top of the stairs first, that it plays an important part in the murders. They go upstairs. Guthrie goes into the room. He walks to a table and turns on a lamp. He sees Jeb in monster form, screams and runs to the door and tries to get out, but finds that Philip has locked it from outside. Philip, outside, hears a blood-curdling scream inside the room. When it stops, he unlocks the door. It opens and Jeb, in human form, comes out. He tells Philip he's done well so far, and remarks, "Let's see if you can do the next part just as well - for Megan..."

At Collinwood, Quentin comes and finds that Carolyn is about to go out. He asks her to wait, saying that Barnabas is coming and that he and Barnabas want to talk to her about something. Carolyn tells him she can't wait and that he should tell her now. They argue about this, and finally Quentin blurts out that she should stop seeing Jeb because he's the man who murdered her father. She refuses to believe him, saying Jeb wasn't even in town yet at the time, that he and Barnabas hate Jeb and will say anything to keep her from seeing him. Jeb bursts in through the door breathlessly says, "Terrible news. The special investigator has been murdered at the antique shop. They've caught the murderer. It's the same man who kill your father." Carolyn asks who. Jeb continues, "This is going to be hard for you, Carolyn. It's Philip Todd. He's confessed..."

Night over Collinwood. A night of decision, for Quentin has agreed to tell Carolyn of the Leviathans, their evil plans for her, and their part in the recent murders. He has begun by telling Carolyn that Jeb Hawkes murdered her father.

Carolyn finds this hard to believe. Quentin is dubious. Jeb explains that the police say Philip is schizophrenic. He explains that Philip walked into the police station and said "I did it again..", and then told them he had committed another murder. Quentin, dubious, remarks that Paul's clothing were strangely burned when he was found and asks if this was the case with Guthrie. Jeb replies that it was. Quentin asks how Philip managed to do this. Jeb replies that Philip refuses to tell how he committed the murders. Carolyn goes outside to call the sheriff to see if she can get any more information. After she hangs up, Barnabas comes in through the front door. Carolyn tells him the shocking news. She then goes upstairs to tell Elizabeth. Barnabas joins Quentin and Jeb in the drawing room. Jeb admits to them that it was of course he who committed the murders and tells Barnabas it was HIS fault that he had to frame Philip, that he shouldn't have sent him to steal the box, that he had to be punished for that. Carolyn comes back down and asks Jeb to take her to the shop so she can see how Megan is doing. They leave. Quentin tells Barnabas that he told Carolyn that Jeb murdered her father just before Jeb came with the news about Philip, but that she wouldn't believe him. Barnabas tells Quentin that the Leviathans must be stopped, and that the first step is to steal the box, that they must do it tonight.

In his room, Jeb takes the box out of the armoire, takes the bat from the cage and puts it in the box, and puts the box back in the armoire. He gloats, "You can have the box any time you want it, Barnabas..."

Jeb goes back downstairs where Carolyn is waiting and tells her she can't see Megan because Megan is under heavy sedation. He comforts her about what happened and they kiss. He tells her he'll take her back to Collinwood and they leave. He brings her back to Collinwood and leaves. Carolyn sits down in a chair in the drawing room and falls asleep.

Quentin and Barnabas arrive at the shop and find it apparently empty. Quentin stands watch outside while Barnabas goes in to steal the box.

Carolyn has the same dream she had before about Jeb, but this time it goes a little further. When he holds up his bloody hands, she shrinks from him and brushes against a door, which opens. Inside, she sees a dead body, screams and asks Jeb what it is. Jeb quickly closes the door and tells her there's nothing in there, that it's just her imagination. Then a large amount of blood flows out from under the door. Jeb continues to insist that it's all her imagination. Carolyn awakens and says, "What does it mean? What does it mean?".

Barnabas comes out of the shop holding the box. He tells Quentin that there's only one place he can destroy it and he's going to take it there. He tells Quentin to stay here, that there's no telling what will happen when the box is destroyed, and that he is to stay here and see if anything happens to Jeb if he comes back.

Barnabas takes the box to the Leviathan altar. He puts it down on the slab and raises his cane and prepares to smash the box to pieces. But suddenly, the box opens by itself. Barnabas is shocked to see that there is a bat inside. It flies out and attacks him, biting him on the neck...

The great estate of Collinwood has never known a more explosive night than this. Jeb has definite proof that Barnabas is a traitor to the Leviathans. And before his punishment comes, Barnabas is determined to steal the sacred Naga Box, so that no other innocent human can be made a member of the vicious cult. He goes to the antique shop, leaving Quentin outside as his guard, succeeds in taking the box from Jeb's room. Then Barnabas, alone, and takes the box to the one place he knows it can be destroyed.

Jeb comes and finds Barnabas unconscious on the ground. He takes the Naga box and leaves. Barnabas regains consciousness, touches his neck, sees blood on his fingers and wails, "NO !!!"

Jeb returns to the antique shop. Outside, Quentin sees that he has the box and, realizing that he has done something to Barnabas, demands to know what he's done to him. Jeb refuses to tell him and they fight. Once again, Quentin proves to be a better fighter than Jeb in human form and gets the upper hand. Jeb pulls a knife on him and orders him to leave. He does.

Quentin returns to the old house and tells Julia what happened. Julia starts to cry, saying she knows what they must have done to Barnabas. They go to search for him.

Barnabas goes to Collinwood with the intention of attacking Maggie. Standing outside, he looks up at her room. But then his conscience gets the better of him and he decides not to and leaves.

Barnabas goes to the Blue Whale and just sits there. A woman comes in and asks the bartender if he knows where the antique shop is. Barnabas goes to her and tells her he knows where it is and starts to explain that the best way to find it is to go to the Collinsport Inn and the shop is directly across from the side entrance. Then he notices that she's wearing a Naga medallion and realizes that she is a Leviathan. Julia and Quentin come in and are overjoyed to find him, but he brushes them off and says that he's busy. They go to the bar. Barnabas continues to talk to the woman, telling her that he can tell from her locket that she is a Leviathan and that he is one too. The woman explains to him that she's from Virginia and that Bruno made her a Leviathan. At the bar, Quentin and Julia wonder what's happened, thinking that perhaps Jeb didn't turn him into a vampire, but merely turned him into a loyal Leviathan again. Barnabas and the woman leave.

Barnabas takes the woman to the old house. The woman asks where Jeb is, Barnabas apparently having told her he would be here. Barnabas replies that he'll be here soon. He starts to ask her questions: how Bruno made her a Leviathan, how Bruno became a Leviathan, etc. She starts to become suspicious and only tells him that Bruno told her a Mr. Strack made him a Leviathan. They talk some more. The woman gets even more suspicious and says, "You're not one of us!" and pulls a knife on him. He stares into her eyes and uses his vampire powers to force her to drop the knife and replies, "You're right! I'm not one of you. I'll show you what I really am!". He bares his fangs. She screams. He attacks her.

Julia and Quentin and find Barnabas kneeling over the woman. Julia checks the woman, finds that she's dead and then sees the bites on her throat. Barnabas turns from them, ashamed, saying he couldn't help it. Julia suggests that she start anti-vampire treatments on him immediately, but Barnabas angrily says, "Jeb can only transform into his true form in his room. I'm going to make sure he never does again!" and storms out. Quentin starts to go after him, but Julia tells him not to bother, he wouldn't be able to stop him. She tells him they have more important things to do, that they have to find a hiding place for Barnabas during the day, that if he continues to fight the Leviathan, they'll certainly try to destroy him. She then remarks that in turning Barnabas into a vampire, he may have made the worst mistake of his life...

Barnabas goes to the antique shop. He walks up the stairs and, hearing breathing from Jeb's room, knows he's in there. He goes back down and splashes gasoline all over the room from a can and lights it...

The shadow of the bat summoned from Hell by Jeb Hawkes has fallen across Barnabas Collins, and once more he is a vampire. Already the blood lust has made him kill tonight, but before the dawn comes, he knows there is something else he must do. He must try to destroy the antique shop, and with it the upstairs room. The only place he knows where Jeb can transform himself into a powerful, inhuman killer.

Megan returns and finds the shop on fire. She calls for Jeb, but receives no answer. Unable to go upstairs because of the flames, she is forced to leave the shop...

Megan calls Elizabeth and tells her the terrible news, saying that the shop has completely burned down....

Barnabas returns to the old house and recounts to Julia what happened, that he stood by and watched until the shop had totally burned down and didn't see Jeb leaving. They wonder if he could possibly be dead. Barnabas tells Julia that even if he isn't, he isn't nearly so dangerous now because he can no longer transform into his true form and is now merely a human being.

Megan goes to Collinwood. She and Elizabeth both despondently discuss Jeb, saying they can't believe he's dead. Jeb walks in and says, "What makes you think I'm dead?. I'm not that easy to get rid of.". Overjoyed, Elizabeth goes to have a room made ready for him. Megan mentions to Jeb that she saw something strange, that she saw Barnabas in the crowd watching the fire.

At the old house, Julia gives Barnabas an anti-vampire injection and then goes upstairs. Jeb comes. Barnabas is shocked. Jeb tells him he know he set the fire. Barnabas admits that he did, and vows to continue trying to kill him. Jeb in turn vows to kill Barnabas, but says he won't do so just yet, that he's going to let him have the 'pleasure' of seeing him take over Collinwood and marry Carolyn. Julia comes down and is shocked to see Jeb. Jeb leaves.

Later, Elizabeth tells Megan that she's glad Jeb is staying here because he and Carolyn seem to get along so well. Megan seems to become angry and leaves.

Megan goes to jail and visits Philip and tells him what happened. Megan apparently having given him reason to think she's no longer a Leviathan, Philip suggests that now is the best time to take care of Jeb and leave Collinsport forever, but Megan warns against it, saying Jeb is no ordinary human and still dangerous. She tells him the best thing for her to do is still pretend to be loyal to the Leviathans.

At Collinwood, Elizabeth shows Jeb his room, a very large one, in some building on the property and tells him he can use the adjoining room where he can be his own, higher self. Elizabeth tells Jeb she's going to go tell their leader Barnabas that he is staying here now, but Jeb tells her she is not to do this and reveals to her that Barnabas is a traitor.

Barnabas awakens and thanks Julia for protecting him. He leaves, saying there's something he must do.

Barnabas goes to the jail and talks to Philip.

Megan goes to see Jeb in his room. She tells him about her visit to Philip and how she fooled him. She tells Jeb she'll go consecrate the adjoining room right away so he can use it to turn to his true form. He tells her not to, that it wasn't her that consecrated it, but Oberon, that he'll have to come to her in a dream first. He remarks that he isn't sure he wants to transform, that maybe he'd prefer to just stay in human form. Megan, her voice full of jealousy, accuses him of just wanting to marry Carolyn as a human, that he can't do this because that's not the way the book says it's supposed to happen, that it is Carolyn who is supposed to transform to his kind, not he to hers. Jeb accuses her of being jealous and they argue. Suddenly, the lights go out and the door blows open. There is the sound of approaching footsteps. Megan, frightened, turns to Jeb and asks him what he's doing but then notices that he is as surprised and frightened as she is. She asks, "Jeb! Who did you make angry?!".

Danger looms on the great estate of Collinwood. For Barnabas has destroyed the antique shop, and with it, the room where Jeb must go to assume his other evil form. But Elizabeth has taken Megan into the house, and given Jeb the deserted coach house on the estate. Megan is determined to consecrate a room there. A room where Jeb can become the true Leviathan.

A shadowy figure walks up to the doorway, a man. It is dark, and Jeb and Megan cannot see his features. He starts to talk, "You always go too far, Jebez!" Jeb asks, "Who are you? Come into this room!" The man continues, "I have watched you, both of you, both of your mistakes, your blundering, your incompetence! I have come to save the Leviathans! I am tired of this darkness. Let there be light!". The lights come back on. The man announces, "I am Nicholas Blair". Jeb remarks, "The name means nothing to me". Nicholas tells Megan to leave, saying he wants to talk to Jeb alone. Megan leaves. Nicholas asks Jeb, "Shall you give your explanation now for the crimes you have committed?" Jeb looks away from him, not answering. Nicholas angrily says, "Look at me, Jeb! I can change anything! Even Carolyn Stoddard's love for you! Begin! Now!"

Carolyn is in the Drawing Room of Collinwood. She is turning off the lights. She hears the sound of the front door opening and calls out, "Jeb?" But it's not Jeb, it's Megan. Carolyn asks, "Megan, do you feel a presence in this room?" Megan answers, "No, Carolyn, you must just be tired". Carolyn agrees, "I suppose you're right. I do need sleep. But I keep having that dream. Every night, it goes a stage further..." Megan asks, "Tell me about it", but Carolyn replies, "I don't want to even think about it! How's Jeb?" Megan answers, "Jeb's at the Carriage house. He's just fine".

At the Carriage house, Nicholas is scolding Jeb for his mistakes, telling him that framing Phillip for the murders and bringing back the sheriff were bad mistakes. He continues, "Every move unwise! And the most unwise is what you did to Barnabas Collins! You made him a vampire, you made him totally useless to us! He will be after you! He will be relentless!" Jeb promises, "I will take care of Barnabas Collins", but Nicholas says, "We must destroy him! Now we will get to your greatest mistake. You want to be HUMAN! For a Leviathan, that is the greatest sin! Give me the box. This was MY idea, the resurrection of the Leviathans. Now give me the box, or the next time Carolyn sees you, she will run from you, she will see you as you really are!..." Jeb reluctantly gives him the box. Nicholas continues, "I will go into this room and consecrate it so that you can transform it into what you really are. Do you understand?" Jeb answers meekly, "Yes", but after Nicholas has gone into the room and closed the door, Jeb says emphatically, "NO!" He goes to the front door to flee, but as soon as he opens the door, he is surprised to find Nicholas standing outside. Nicholas tells him, "Jeb! You see, I can anticipate your every move!" and asks him, "Am I going to continue to have to show you what powers I have? Your room is now ready for you, Jeb" and steps inside. Jeb begs, "Don't make me change!", but Nicholas replies, "I have no choice. My last plan ended in failure. I do not like to being punished for failure! I do not plan to fail again". He warns Jeb, "I know you want to kill me, but you cannot kill me, Jeb, even in your other form", and orders, "Get into that room! Now!" Jeb vows, "I'll get even with you!" Nicholas replies, "I'll take that chance. Now open that door, and go into that room!" Jeb does so reluctantly. Nicholas lets Bruno in. He asks Nicholas, "Does he know I told you where to find him?" Nicholas replies, "No, I will protect you from him". Bruno gestures toward the door of the consecrated room and asks, "Is that where? I don't hear anything". Nicholas explains, "He can delay it, but that is all". Finally, the heavy breathing starts. Nicholas exults, "All is well now, Bruno, all is well!"

Carolyn in bed sleeping. She starts to dream again and cries out, "NO! NO! Not again! Not again!" The dream continues. She sees Jeb with blood on hands and asks, "Why is there blood on your hands, Jeb? What have you done? What have you done?" The door to the adjacent room opens. Carolyn sees a body inside and asks Jeb, "Who's that? Who's that? Jeb, you've killed someone!" Jeb begs, "Don't believe that!" Carolyn again asks, "Who is it?? Who is it?" Jeb replies, "Nobody, Carolyn, nobody!" Blood starts to flow from under door. Carolyn looks for Jeb, but finds that he isn't in the room anymore. She opens the door and goes in. She finds herself surrounded by darkness and calls out, "Where am I? Where's the body?" It starts to become lighter. Carolyn notes, I'm in the cemetery!" and wonders aloud, "Who called me here? I've got to find out who's body that is! Jeb had blood on his hands!" Carolyn is standing next to a coffin that is next to a gravestone, about to be buried. It opens all by itself. Carolyn looks inside. It is empty. Carolyn asks aloud, "Whose grave is this, who?" She looks at gravestone. It reads "PAUL STODDARD". Carolyn awakens screaming.

Nicholas is talking to Bruno, telling him about Jeb's mistakes, "I disagree with the sacrifice of Phillip Todd, but someone had to pay for those murders..." He puts on his hat and gloves and tells Bruno that he's leaving for Collinwood. Bruno starts to ask, "Let me ask you one question. Why Collinsport?" Nicholas replies, "That is a question you may never ask, Bruno. But there is a reason, a most important reason" Nick leaves.

The heavy breathing stops. Bruno, worried, calls out, "Jeb? Jeb?" Receiving no answer, he opens door and goes in. The breathing starts again. Bruno sees Jeb in monster form coming for him and screams, "NO! NO! I didn't tell! I told them nothing! Don't kill me! Don't!" Please!!!!!!" He runs for the front door, but stops when he hears a voice call out, "Bruno!" He turns and sees that Jeb has transformed back into his human form. Bruno complains, "You were going to kill me!" Jeb replies, "IT was, not me, IT was!" Bruno notes, "But you and it are the same". Jeb replies, "I don't want to transform into that thing, ever again!" Bruno, puzzled, tells him, "But I want to be like you are, in there!" Jeb replies, "You're not in love, Bruno".

At Collinwood, Carolyn is looking at herself in the mirror and trying to analyze her dream. Jeb comes to the door. He tells her, "I had this feeling you were in trouble". She tells him about her dream and tells her that she knows if they went to her father's grave tonight, they would find his coffin empty. Carolyn nearly starts crying and flings herself into Jeb's arms. Megan comes downstairs at that moment, and tells Carolyn she's got a sleeping pill for her. Carolyn takes the pill then kisses Jeb. Megan watches, a look of jealousy on her face. Carolyn goes upstairs, and Jeb tells Megan to meet him at Paul Stoddard's grave after Carolyn is asleep. Megan agrees, still with a look of jealousy in her face.

Jeb goes to Paul's grave and starts digging, while Megan is sitting with Carolyn in her room. Finally, Megan leaves, and Carolyn turns out the light and attempts to go to sleep.

Megan goes to the cemetery, where Jeb has uncovered Paul's coffin. He is afraid to open it. "He's working against me!" he says. Megan says that's Jeb's own fault for killing Paul, but since he's dug up this coffin he might as well open it. Jeb opens the coffin, and inside... is a picture of Dennis Patrick with a really stupid smile on his face. Of course to Jeb and Megan, this is the body of Paul Stoddard, with a really stupid smile on his face. "Look at him, smiling at me, gloating" Jeb says. He fears that Paul will tell Carolyn everything, so he decides that they must burn Paul's body.

Earlier this night, Carolyn Stoddard woke from a strange and disturbing dream, in which she saw an empty coffin in her father's grave. She related this dream to a young man named Jeb Hawkes, and he became even more disturbed by it than she. He went to the grave with a companion, and discovered the coffin was not empty - instead, to his horror, he saw the corpse of Paul Stoddard staring up at him with a vengeful smile.

Megan is on the terrace of Collinwood talking to Nicholas, telling him how she and Jeb opened Paul Stoddard's coffin, found his body grinning at Jeb, and how they burned it. Nicholas tells Megan that doesn't solve their problem at all. Megan asks why. Nicholas replies, "Because burning a body just destroys the body. The spirit remains. It will haunt Jeb Hawkes to his own grave! And maybe I'll let it!" Megan becomes angry, grabs Nicholas and growls, "If you let anything happen to Jeb, I swear, I'll kill you!" Nicholas calmly replies, "Take your hands off me". Megan, starting to look frightened, does so. Nicholas continues, "Don't you EVER threaten me again, do you understand?" Megan remarks, "Sometimes I wonder whose side you're on". Nicholas replies, "You can stop wondering. I only said what I did because Jeb is immature and reckless. Perhaps he might become less so because of such an experience". Megan asks, "But you won't let anything really happen to him, will you?" Nicholas notes, "You seem very concerned about him". Megan replies, "It's just that he's my responsibility". Nicholas says, "Is it your sense of responsibility that drives you, or something else?" Megan says, "I don't know what you mean". Nicholas tells her, "I think you're in love with him". Megan lies, "That's not true". Nicholas tells her, "I hope not. All that matters is our cause. YOU as an individual are expendable. I know what it is to make mistakes. I have superiors as well. I cannot afford to fail a second time! I want you to remain loyal to Jeb, but now the orders come from ME!". He assures her, "I won't let any harm come to Jeb. He's the one person who's indispensable to us".

At the mansion on Little Windward Island, Sky Rumson is talking to someone on the phone, making an appointment to meet at the mansion tonight. As he finishes talking and hangs up, Angelique comes into the room. She remarks, "Everything always goes so well with you. What's your secret?" Sky replies, "I guess I'm just lucky", but Angelique tells him, "I know your secret. No one can say no to you!", grabs him and kisses him. She then asks him, "Who was that you were talking to on the phone?" Sky replies, "A very important guest. He'll be here in about two hours. I'd like you to meet him." Angelique avers that she doesn't like sitting talking business, but Sky tells her, "It's not business. This man's the key to our entire future".

Megan is still on the terrace. She hears the sound of a bat. Suddenly, she sees Barnabas standing there. She growls, "You're a traitor, and I can't wait to see Jeb punish you!" Barnabas replies, "He's already punished me. Can't you see?" He grabs her. Megan tells him, "I want to go inside! Let go of me or I'll scream!" Barnabas orders, "Look into my eyes!" Megan says, "You're not like you used to be! You're like a different person! What are you going to do to me?" Barnabas bares his fangs and bites her...

Megan has been bitten. Barnabas asks, "Do you still want to go inside?" Megan replies, "No, I want to stay here with you." Barnabas continues, "And what about Jeb? How do you feel about him?" Megan replies, "I have no need for Jeb, only for you." Barnabas asks, "Are you willing to help me?" Megan answers, "Yes". Barnabas asks, "There must be a way to destroy Jeb. I order you to tell me what it is!" Megan replies, "It's in the book. Only David Collins can read the book". Barnabas asks, "There's one other thing I need to find out. Jeb couldn't have found out about me unless someone led him to me. Who?" Megan replies, "A man who's been one of us for a long time. A man named Sky Rumson". Barnabas, looking surprised, remarks, "Now everything is beginning to make sense!" He orders her to go back inside, saying, "I have important things to do!"

At the Rumson mansion, Angelique is sitting in a chair and Sky is pacing around nervously. Angelique tells Sky, "Maybe you should tell me about this man. I've never seen you so nervous!" Sky replies, "I can't stress how important this man is to us. He's responsible for everything I am". Angelique remarks, "But everyone knows you're a self-made man". Sky replies, "You'll see what I mean.". Angelique tells him, "I think I'll go upstairs and let you two talk alone first, then I'll make my grand entrance".

Barnabas has snuck into Angelique's bedroom and is lurking about. Angelique comes into the room and turns on the lights. Barnabas calls out, "Angelique!" Angelique, shocked to see him there, exclaims, "Barnabas! What are you doing here? You promised never to come here! If my husband sees you here, I'm ruined!" Barnabas tells her, "In my present state, I can leave unseen". Angelique asks, "What do you mean?" Barnabas sarcastically remarks, "You of all people should be able to recognize what's happened". Angelique belatedly notices that he's a vampire again and asks, "How did it happen?" Barnabas replies, "Jeb found out about me - from your husband" Angelique exclaims, "That's absurd!" Barnabas tells her, "He's one of them, he's a Leviathan, and has been one for years". They hear Sky coming and Barnabas hides behind the curtains. Sky comes into the room and gives a small statuette to Angelique, saying it's a gift for her from that shop in Boston, that he noticed she seemed to like it when they were there. Noticing that she seems distracted, asks, "Are you all right?" Angelique replies, "Fine, it's just something about your thoughtfulness touches me". The doorbell rings downstairs and Sky exclaims, "Ah! Our guest has arrived!!" and rushes down to answer it. Barnabas comes out from behind the curtains and remarks, "You're really in love with him, aren't you?" Angelique tells him, "It was four months ago that we were at that shop in Boston, and he remembered that I liked this. How can I believe that such a man is a Leviathan". Barnabas says, "You should at least investigate the possibility!", but Angelique angrily tells him, "I refuse to discuss this any further! Now leave!"

Downstairs, Nicholas Blair is telling Sky about a reorganization he's planning. Sky tells Blair, "I'd like to tell my wife. This is the only part of my life she doesn't know about". Blair asks, "You mean you want to make her one of us?" Sky replies that he does. Blair reminds him, "You remember, not everyone is susceptible. I'll know when I take a look at her". Angelique comes into the room and starts to say, "Sorry I took so long.." but stops with a look of pure shock on her face when she sees that Sky's guest is Nicholas Blair. Sky introduces them to one another, "Dear, this is my good friend Nicholas Blair, Nicholas, this is my wife Angelique". Angelique pretends never to have seen him before, "How do you do, Mr. Blair?" Nicholas replies, "The pleasure has to be mine. I'm not so easily taken by surprise!" Sky asks, "Surprise?" Blair explains, "It's just that she's far more beautiful that you led me to believe. How did you meet her?" Sky replies, "In one of my very own magazines. Angelique was modeling in it. I'll leave you two to get acquainted. I'll be back soon" and leaves.

Nicholas tells Angelique, "At the risk of sounding banal, it's a small world, isn't it?" Angelique replies, "Too small for the both of us, Nicholas!". Nicholas remarks, "You never expected to see me again, did you? I've never seen such a look of shock before. Was it just because you were just surprised to see me or finding out that your husband and I were friends?" Angelique replies, "Both. How long has he been a Leviathan?". Nicholas replies, "A long time now". Angelique whines, "And I had begun to believe so much in Sky. I thought escape was possible". Blair tells her, "No one can escape, dear". Angelique continues, "I could have lived with everything, but this deception..."Blair asks, "And he knows everything about you?" Angelique replies that she hasn't told him anything, that she wanted to lead a normal life with Sky. Blair snidely remarks, "How female, you're furious about his deception but see nothing wrong in yours!" Sky returns. Blair leaves, saying he has to go make a phone call. Angelique asks Sky, "Sky, that secret I told you about Barnabas, did you tell anyone?" Sky lies, "No", but Angelique continues, "You told Jeb Hawkes, didn't you?" Sky again lies, "No". Angelique says, Never mind. It's enough to know that Nicholas Blair is the source of all your success. I was told the truth earlier tonight, but I refused to believe it, but now I have no choice. You and your talk about not keeping secrets from one another, and here you've been keeping the biggest secret of all. You're one of them, you're a Leviathan, aren't you?" Sky replies, "Yes, and I want you to be too". Angelique shouts, "Don't say any more!" and leaves angrily.

Nicholas Blair comes back into the room and tells Sky, "Now that she knows about you, she is our deadly enemy. She cannot become one of us. You must destroy her". Sky refuses, so Blair gestures at the mansion and says, "We made all this possible, and we can unmake it. I'll give you a choice, Angelique or the Rumson empire." He lights a poker in the fire and tells Sky, "She must be destroyed with this. This is the severest test we'll ever put you to, Sky. I suggest you do not fail it".

Angelique is upstairs packing. Suddenly, Sky comes rushing through the door holding the burning poker. Angelique exclaims, "Sky! What are you doing?" Sky replies, "I really wanted everything to work out, I really wanted it to, but now I'm going to have to destroy you" and starts to approach with the burning poker. Angelique screams, "Sky! NO!!! NO!!!!!"

It is night at Collinwood, and once again night is the only time that Barnabas Collins can know. Through the betrayal of another, the curse of the living dead has been re-inflicted upon him. Earlier this night, he learned the name of the man who betrayed him. He then went to a house on an island off the coast to warn Angelique that her husband was the man. She refused to believe him, but later when she saw her husband with the nefarious Nicholas Blair, she realized Barnabas had been telling the truth.

Angelique exclaims, "Nicholas Blair sent you here to kill me!" Sky pauses and says, "You're not one of us". Angelique takes advantage of the pause to quickly grab the statuette Sky had given her and wrap a necktie around its throat. She tells Sky, "Please! Don't make me! Don't force me!" Sky asks, "What are you talking about?" Angelique replies, "Nicholas Blair didn't tell you much about me, did he?" and tightens the cord. Sky starts to strangle. Angelique orders, "Put the poker in the fire, Sky". Sky gasps, "What's happening to me?" Angelique tells him, "Do as I say or I'll make it worse". Sky puts the poker in the fire and asks, "What ARE you, anyway?" Angelique replies, "Ask your friend Nicholas Blair", pulls the cord tighter and watches Sky go "AHHHH!" and collapse to the floor unconscious. Angelique sadly notes, "Oh, maybe it was all wrong from the beginning. We both kept from each other our deepest secrets".

Barnabas is in the garden at Collinsport trying to summon Maggie. to come to him. Maggie comes out into the garden and says, "Barnabas? Barnabas, what are you doing here? The strangest thing happened. I was sound asleep but awoke with the feeling that I had to come here". Barnabas replies, "Good. I had to talk to you. There's something I have for you, something very dear to me". He gives her Josette's ring and continues, "I want you to wear this as a token of our friendship. Maggie, believe me when I tell you how much I care for you". They embrace, but are quickly startled by a voice saying, "Excuse me!" They look and see that it's Quentin. Quentin continues, "Sorry to interrupt, but Barnabas, I've got to talk to you". Barnabas sends Maggie away. Quentin warns Barnabas, "I don't have to ask what might have happened if I didn't arrive. In your present condition, all you can do is hurt her." He continues, "I need you at the old house. Julia is having trouble finding Willie Loomis. I'll have to protect you during the day until she does. Let's go".

Inside, Maggie is looking fondly at the ring.

At the Old House, Quentin is dozing in a chair. He is awakened by someone knocking at the front door. He gets up, goes to the door and opens it. He is shocked to see Angelique standing there. Angelique quips, "Well, don't just stand there, Quentin, kiss me!". Quentin gives her a quick peck on the cheek. Angelique remarks, "You used to do much better than that". Quentin replies, "We're both a lot older. You said we'd meet again. Why have we?" Angelique replies, "Don't be so apprehensive. I came here to meet Barnabas, but I guess it's not the right time. I know what's happened to him. I know the person who betrayed him to the Leviathans was my husband". Quentin gasps, "Your husband?" She tells him what happened. Quentin asks, "What are your plans now? Is there any way I can help?" Angelique replies, "There's nothing you can do. My interest in you in the past was nothing but a device to hurt Barnabas. Barnabas has always been my one true love." Quentin notes, "You look very tired. Maybe you should go upstairs and get some rest". Angelique replies, "I think I will. It feels good to be in this house I know so well. I lived here and I loved here. This is where it all started. I think I'll sleep in Josette's room" and goes upstairs.

It is later. Quentin is reading a newspaper. There's another knock at the door. Quentin answers. It is a man he's never seen before. Quentin asks, "What can I do for you?" The man introduces himself, "I'm Sky Rumson. I thought I'd find my wife here". Angelique comes down the stair and says, "I'll see him". She tells Quentin she wants to talk to Sky alone. Quentin leaves the room. Angelique, looking irritated, asks, "Well, Sky, what is it?" Sky replies, "I've been talking with Nicholas Blair all day. He told me about you. I still love you...." Angelique exclaims, "You think I could still love you after all this?? You tried to kill me!!!" Sky replies, "Things are different now. I told Nicholas how much I love you. He's agreed to let us be together. All you have to do is change into one of us". Angelique angrily replies, "I don't want anything to do with your side or Nicholas Blair! Go back and tell your master NO! Now leave! Go!" Sky leaves. Barnabas comes into the room, saying, "Quentin told me you were here". They embrace. Angelique admits, "You were right about everything, Barnabas! I've been a complete fool. Everything that's happened to you is my fault. I told Sky everything about you. I had no idea he'd betray you to the Leviathans." She begs, "Barnabas, maybe we can start over again, like when we first met. Barnabas, we're both so alike, both outcasts. I should have known I could never live a normal life. I should have known it the first time I saw Nicholas Blair again." Barnabas exclaims, "Nicholas Blair? What does he have to do with all this?" Angelique tells him that Nicholas is back. Barnabas recalls Nicholas' interest in Maggie in the past, and worries that he may turn his attentions to Maggie again. He rushes to warn her.

Barnabas and Maggie are in the garden at Collinwood. Maggie exclaims, "Nicholas Blair is back?! I don't know what to say!" Barnabas warns her, "He's in league with one of them, Jeb Hawkes. Jeb will tell him you're one of them, and he'll come to see you. You must never let him know you're not, or you'll be in jeopardy". They embrace and kiss. Unknown to them, Angelique is watching them looking very jealous.

Quentin and Maggie are in the drawing room of Collinwood. Quentin is saying, "There's no law you have to listen to my advice, but you should stay away from Barnabas Collins. I'm telling you this for your own good and his!" Maggie asks, "Why?" Quentin replies, "There are people who want to harm Barnabas. They might use you to trap him..."

Meanwhile, Angelique is lurking about outside. She thinks to herself, "You asked me if you could help me, Quentin. Now you can! I am what I was and always shall be! I call upon the powers of darkness to help me again! Let there be a flame where there was no flame before! And let that flame be love!"

Inside, Quentin continues to argue with Maggie about her seeing Barnabas. Maggie says, "I'm going to continue to see Barnabas, and there's nothing you can do to stop me!" Suddenly, the fireplace flares. They both look.

Outside, Angelique continues chanting, "Quentin and Maggie! Look into the flames! Your future is there! Your future is love!

Inside, Quentin says, "Maggie?" Maggie replies, "Yes, Quentin?" They suddenly embrace and kiss. Maggie asks, "What's happening to us?" Quentin replies, "I don't know!" Maggie suddenly takes off the ring Barnbas gave her and throws it into the fire. They embrace and kiss again.

Outside, Angelique continues to chant, "Quentin Collins and Maggie Evans, it is this sign that binds you, this is the sign that binds you, and whenever it appears, no power can keep you apart!"

Inside, Maggie and Quentin notice that the sign of the trident has appeared on the back of their hands.

This night has brought revenge to the great house of Collinwood. The revenge of an angry Angelique Collins, for she not only has discovered that her husband is part of Jeb Hawkes' plot, but she has been rejected again by her life-long love, Barnabas Collins, because he loves another. And so like the servant girl she was in 1797, she plots her moves carefully. Maggie Evans must fall in love with another. Barnabas must find himself as unloved as she feels. And so she works her magic.

Maggie and Quentin embrace and kiss again. They are so engrossed in one another they do not notice that Amy has walked into the drawing room. Maggie tells Quentin, "I feel disloyal". Quentin asks, "To Barnabas?" Maggie replies, "Yes". Quentin tells her, "Maggie, you mustn't feel that way. He couldn't expect us to fight it, and we couldn't if we tried. We will still help him fight against Jeb. Our feelings toward one another won't affect that." He warns her not to let Jeb find out she's not really a Leviathan, saying, "I can't lose you, not the way we feel now". They still do not notice that Amy is listening to them...

Amy goes to Elizabeth, who's working on something at a desk in another room, and tells her, "Maggie Evans opened the box, our box". Elizabeth replies, "Jeb told me that secretly". Amy tells her, "But she's fighting against us, Mrs. Stoddard! Her, Quentin and Barnabas! I thought Barnabas was one of our leaders!" Elizabeth tells Amy, "Amy, I think you'd better tell me exactly what's happened".

In the drawing room, Quentin and Maggie are both staring at their hands. The trident marks have vanished, and they are surprised to find that they no longer have any feelings toward one another...

After Quentin leaves, Maggie suddenly remember, "The ring!" and retrieves it from the fireplace. Elizabeth come into the room and asks, "Maggie, would you mind helping me carry some books from the upstairs down to the cellar? I wouldn't ask, but Mrs. Johnson has left for the day". Maggie replies, "Certainly" They go up the stairs. Amy watches them go up, then quickly goes to the front door, takes her coat from the coat rack, puts it on, and opens the front door. To her surprise, a man is standing outside, just about to knock. The man says, "Well, hello! I was just about to knock. I'm Willie Loomis, remember me?" Amy replies, "Yes". Willie asks, "Where are you going to?" Amy replies, "On an errand". Willie asks, "Can you tell me where Barnabas and Julia are?" Amy replies, "They aren't here". Willie protests, "But I've already been to the Old House and they aren't there. Where else could they be?" Amy replies, "I don't know. All I know is that they're not here". Willie asks, "And Maggie Evans?" Amy replies, "She's out. She won't be back till later tonight". Amy prepares to leave. Willie asks, "Does Mrs. Stoddard know you're going out this time of night?" Amy replies, "She's the one who sent me" and leaves.

Elizabeth and Maggie are going up the stairs to the Tower room. Maggie remarks, "I didn't know you kept books up here". Elizabeth replies, "I don't know why we do. It really does need to be cleaned up". Elizabeth unlocks the door to the Tower room and lets Maggie in. Maggie remarks, "This room! It's like stepping into another time!" Suddenly, Elizabeth goes back outside, then closes and locks the door. Maggie shouts, "Mrs. Stoddard! What are you doing!? Let me out! Mrs. Stoddard! Why did you do this, why? Mrs. Stoddard?" But there is no answer. Elizabeth has left. Maggie thinks aloud, "She's found out! She must have overheard Quentin and me! That's the only explanation! What am I going to do?"

Willie is talking on the phone in the foyer making "kissy" noises. He then says, in a babyish voice, "Oh, I can't help it, precious. Old Willie wants terribly to be with you, but can't just right now..." Just as he finishes his call, he hears a voice exclaim, "Willie!" He turns and sees that it's Elizabeth. He tells her, "Barnabas and Julia sent for me. Are they here?" Elizabeth replies that they're not. Willie asks, "Is it all right if I wait here for them?" Elizabeth replies, "Barnabas will not be coming here tonight". Willie asks, "And Julia? She still lives here, doesn't she?" Elizabeth replies, "I don't know when she'll be back". Willie announces, "I'm going to get married!' Elizabeth replies, in a rather cold tone, "Congratulations". Willie continues, "Bet this is going to shock a lot of people! She's really out of this world...", but Elizabeth interrupts, "I don't have time to chat". Willie tells her, "I'll go tell Maggie Evans the good news. Do you know where she is?". Elizabeth replies, "I haven't the faintest idea". Willie asks, "Are you sure she isn't here?" Elizabeth, sounding irritated, replies, "I should know who's in this house. Go to the Old House. Barnabas... I'm sure he'd like to hear the news" and leaves. Willie, looking puzzled, says "Bye, Mrs. Stoddard", and leaves.

Outside in the woods, Willie wonders, "Mrs. Stoddard, she never acted that way before. She looked funny when I mentioned Barnabas and Maggie. What's going on here?" He hears a noise. It's Amy coming back. He hides and watches.

Elizabeth anxiously awaits Amy outside the front door of Collinwood. Elizabeth asks Amy, "Did you see Willie in the woods?" Amy replies, "No". Elizabeth remarks, "Good. He would have asked too many questions". Amy asks, "Is Maggie locked in the room?" Elizabeth replies, "Yes". They both go inside. Willie, hiding, has heard every word.

Elizabeth and Amy are in the drawing room. Elizabeth asks, "Is Jeb coming?" Amy replies, "Yes". Elizabeth moans, "Oh, why did Maggie have to turn against us?" Amy replies, "The important thing is that Jeb knows. He's coming to take care of it soon!"

Willie sneaks into Collinwood by climbing in through a window. He goes to the bedroom hallway and knocks on Maggie's door, calling, "Maggie! Maggie!", but receives no answer. He calls out again, "Maggie, are you in there?" but still gets no answer. He wonders, "Where is she? Where?"

Elizabeth asks Amy, "Is Jeb coming here in the form he is when he's in that room?" Amy replies, "I don't know." Elizabeth ponders, "I don't know if another murder is a good idea with all that talk that's going around after Paul and the Sheriff. Poor Maggie..." Amy exclaims, "Mrs. Stoddard! Maggie's a traitor!" Elizabeth sadly admits, "Yes, I forget that". She tells Amy, "I think you'd better go check on Maggie". Amy replies, "Yes, I think I'll tell her who's coming". Elizabeth replies, "Yes, tell her that". Amy goes upstairs. Willie, who's been hiding in the room under the stairs, follows her...

Amy goes to the door of the Tower room and calls out, "Maggie! Maggie!" Maggie shouts back, "Amy! Amy! Unlock the door! There's been a terrible mistake! I'm locked in here!" Amy replies, "I can't do that, Maggie". Maggie begs, "Please!", but Amy replies, "Only Jeb can". Maggie, frightened, asks, "Jeb"? Amy replies, "He's coming now, Maggie". Maggie begs, "Please! Don't leave me here!", but Amy leaves.

The door to the Tower room opens. Maggie, frightened, calls out, "Jeb?", but then sees who it is and exclaims, "Willie! Willie Loomis! Help me out of here!" Suddenly, from the outside, Amy, who hasn't really left, shuts and locks the door. Willie exclaims, "It's a trap! It's a trap!" Maggie sits down on the bed feeling hopeless. Willie sits down beside her and assures her, "Well get out of here, don't worry..."

Elizabeth and Amy are standing by an open front door. Elizabeth seems to feel bad about Willie, saying, "He told me about his marriage. He told me about the new life he was going to have..." but Amy interrupts, "He tried to save Maggie's life!" Elizabeth replies, "I suppose you're right". They close the front door and leave. Heavy breathing is heard, and slimy tracks are left on the carpet as something goes upstairs...

Inside the Tower room, Willie remarks, "There's no way out." Suddenly, hears a heavy breathing noise and exclaims, "What's that noise, Maggie?" Maggie replies, "It's breathing!" Willie asks, "What breathes like THAT?" Maggie cries out in fear, "Willie!" Willie asks, "What IS it, Maggie?", but Maggie just cries, "It's outside the door!!!!"

For one woman and one man, this is a night of terror at the great estate of Collinwood. For Maggie Evans has been discovered. Jeb knows she is working with Barnabas Collins against him, and a newly-returned Willie Loomis is trapped with her while trying to save her. As they wait in the tower they hear a sound. A sound which terrifies them both.

The lights in the tower room go out. Maggie screams. Suddenly, the breathing stops. Maggie and Willie hear a human scream outside. Outside the door, Jeb has for some reason reverted to human form. A look of terror on his face, he screams, "NO!!! NO!!!" and runs off. Willie and Maggie see a key in the keyhole unlocking the door. Willie goes to open the door. Maggie shouts, "NO! It's a trap!", but Willie opens the door anyway. He looks outside and tells Maggie, "There's no one here, Maggie! Come one! We've got to go!" Maggie, still thinking it's a trap, tells Willie, "He's probably waiting at the end of the corridor for us!", but Willie replies, "We've got to take that chance!"

At the Old House, Julia gives Barnabas a anti-vampire injection. Barnabas complains, "I don't understand. You've given these to me before, but this time, they don't seem to be having any effect". Julia replies, "They're taking effect. You just don't feel it yet. You must trust me. Jeb must not find your coffin!" Barnabas assures her, "He'll never find where I've hidden it. Right now, I'm more concerned about Maggie. With her living in the same house as Elizabeth and Amy, they're certain to find out about her sooner of later". Suddenly, Willie and Maggie come bursting into the room. Maggie is hysterical and screams, "They know about us! They tried to kill us! We heard that breathing! We were locked in that room!" Willie explains what happened. Maggie complains, "I feel so weak!" Julia takes her upstairs. Willie exclaims, "Barnabas! What's going on in this place??? I don't understand any of it! Maggie tried to explain it to me, but it makes no sense!" Barnabas replies, "I'm afraid that it does". Willie asks, "But Mrs. Stoddard and Amy love Maggie. Why would they try to hurt her?" Barnabas remarks, "So they've found out about her. So, he's decided to continue the murders". Willie asks, "Murders?" Barnabas replies, "Yes, murders. Please tell me how you escaped". Willie remarks, "I've been through many things, but nothing like this! First there was this loud breathing, then a man's scream, then someone runs away! Then the key turns in the lock, but there's no one there! Whatever let us out is no more human than what tried to get in! When Julia called, she said we were in more trouble than we've ever been in before..." Barnabas interrupts, "More trouble you realize. Every morning, I have to go to my coffin again..." Willie exclaims, "Oh no, Barnabas! How did it happen?" Barnabas explains, "My punishment for fighting them. But it won't stop me from continuing to fight them". Willie says, "Barnabas! You've got to explain to me what's happening!" Barnabas remarks, "You deserve an explanation. You've been through enough.

Upstairs, Julia gives Maggie a sedative, assuring her, "You'll feel much better soon". Maggie moans, "I've failed! I've failed Barnabas! Quentin and I were talking, and Mrs. Stoddard or Amy must have overheard us! I'm afraid! I'm so afraid! It was so strange! The key turned in the lock! Who could've done it, Julia, who?" Julia assures her, "You're safe here, Maggie. You know that". Barnabas comes into the room. Julia tells Maggie, "Try to get some rest" and leaves. Maggie exclaims, "Oh, Barnabas! So many things have happened." Barnabas replies, "I came so close to losing you! What power could have driven Jeb from you?" Maggie wonders, "Why did he change into human form? Thank God he did!" Barnabas remarks, "I never thought he could transform into the creature again after I burned down the antique shop. They must have consecrated another room, made it into a room of evil. We must find a way to stop him! I can't have you in this sort of danger!"

Downstairs, Willie is saying, "Oh, this is terrible, Barnabas being this way again". Julia replies, "I know, Willie. Those injections, until start to work Barnabas is in danger, more danger than he's ever been in before. That's why we need your help, Willie". Julia notices that Willie looks reluctant and asks, "What's wrong?" Willie replies, "It's Roxanne! She's waiting for me at a motel near Route 31. We're going to visit her sister Sue Agatha. That's the only family she has. She's so pretty, Julia, so refined. She's a real lady". Julia asks, "Why can't you and Roxanne find a house here?" Willie continues, "What I mean is I can't stay!" Julia protests, "But you have to, Willie! Barnabas needs you!" Barnabas comes down the stairs into the room, but neither Willie or Julia notice him. Willie explains, "When I first met Roxanne, I was working in a hospital. That's what she thinks I am. I can't come back here. What am I going to tell Roxanne I'm doing for Barnabas? Sorry, Julia, I can't stay". Barnabas chimes in, "No you can't, Willie. You have your own life to lead". Willie says, "I knew you'd understand, Barnabas. I hope we're still friends". Barnabas assures him, "We are". Willie continues, "Well, I'd better be getting back to Roxanne. I'll go up and say goodbye to Maggie" and goes upstairs. Barnabas remarks to Julia, "I hope he and Roxanne are very happy". Julia protests, "Barnabas, you could have talked him into staying!" Barnabas replies, "I didn't want to". Julia protests, "But Barnabas! You need his help now more than ever!", but Barnabas replies, "I'll find someone else".

Upstairs, Willie pours Maggie a cup of coffee. Maggie says, "Willie, I've haven't even thanked you". Willie replies, "But I didn't do anything". Maggie says, "But you tried". Willie admits, "I was afraid that one look at you and I'd forget Roxanne, but I haven't". Maggie replies, "I'm glad you didn't". Willie apologizes, "Sorry, I didn't mean that to sound the way it did", but Maggie tells him, "I understand". Willie tells Maggie, "Maggie, you've got to take care of Barnabas and Julia! They're all alone now. I never knew how terrible it was to be all alone until I wasn't".

Down in the living room, Julia is arguing with Barnabas, "You can't find anyone else, Barnabas! No one else can know your secret!" Barnabas replies, "You and Quentin have done well enough...", but Julia says, "They'll soon start hunting you during the day..." A voice interrupts, "Who will, Miss Hoffman?" Barnabas and Julia look and are startled to see that Jeb has entered the room. Jeb jokes, "It's nice to hear you talking about me". Barnabas asks, "What do you want here?" Jeb replies, "To talk to you - alone". Barnabas starts to say, "Julia...". Julia interrupts, "No, Barnabas!" Jeb quips, "Well, I didn't bring any silver bullets. He'll be safe - for the moment!". Barnabas begs, "Julia, please go". Julia reluctantly leaves. Jeb tells Barnabas, "I made a mistake turning you into a vampire, but you've made mistakes too. You made a mistake burning the antique shop, and you made a mistake turning Maggie Evans into a spy. We're going to get Willie Loomis! It'll be part of your punishment for being disloyal. And I'm going to make you see me marry Carolyn". Barnabas promises, "I'll stop you!", but Jeb retorts, "I'll find your coffin! I know you're responsible for what happened in the hallway, and I'll get you for it! I'll get you!!" and leaves. Barnabas talks to himself, "What did happen in the hallway? What are the Leviathans weaknesses? Werewolves, and ghosts. I don't know! I don't know!". Willie comes into the room and remarks, "You're talking to yourself. That's a bad sign". Barnabas tells Willie, "Get away, Willie! Get away before Jeb does something to you!" Willie replies, "If you say so. I hope you don't think I'm terrible for this, I feel bad about it, but I do have my own life to lead". Barnabas assures him that he doesn't and says, "Goodbye, Willie". Willie leaves. Julia comes down. Barnabas tells her, "Julia! Whatever happened in that hallway must have been supernatural. We've got to find out what it was! In the book, it says the Leviathans are more afraid of the spirits of the dead than any other people!" Suddenly, Willie comes bursting back in through the front doors. He exclaims, "I can't leave! I can't leave with things being the way they are! Roxanne will just have to adjust! It'll be tough for me, but I'm back".

Julia goes back to Collinwood. In the foyer, she thinks to herself, "What did stop Jeb from going into the tower room? Do we have an ally in this house we don't know about? If I go to the Tower room, perhaps I could find evidence of whoever was there beside Jeb". She goes up the stairs. Jeb, who's been hiding in the room under the stairs, comes out into the foyer and follows her.

Outside the tower room door, Julia is looking around when suddenly Jeb grabs her and demands, "Tell me where Barnabas' coffin is! Tell me or I'll kill you!" Suddenly, Jeb sees something that causes his face to contort in fear and screams, "Stay away from me!!! Stay away from me!!!" and runs away in terror. Julia looks at the thing that scared Jeb and screams, "Who are you? Tell me! Who are you? What do you want???"

In his fury at Barnabas Collins, Jeb Hawkes has lashed out at all who are close to him. Maggie Evans, revealed as a traitor, was marked for murder in the tower room, until something unseen terrified Jeb and drove him away. Julia Hoffman has seen Jeb filled with terror, and now she sees the thing that has frightened him.

Julia sees the shadowy silhouette of a man wearing a cape and a hat with a very large brim. She screams, "Who are you? Tell me! Who are you? What do you want???" but the shadowy figure just fades away into nothingness.

Julia and Quentin are in the drawing room of Collinwood. Julia is telling Quentin what happened, "I saw a caped figure. It was impossible to see who it was. All I know is that there is a force in the house working against the Leviathans". Elizabeth comes into the room and jokes, "What are you conspiring?" Julia asks, "We were just wondering where Maggie Evans is". Elizabeth replies, "In her note, she said she'd be back as soon as the situation with her family is settled". She tells that everything turns out well for Maggie then leaves. Quentin asks Julia how Elizabeth can lie like that, how she can try to kill Maggie one day then say she is concerned about her the next. Julia replies, "Quentin, this is a house of lies. The only way to get back is to smile and lie back". Quentin quips, "Then I'm one ahead of them. I've had years of experience lying!". Julia leaves to get some coffee. In the foyer, she runs into Roger, who says, "I see Maggie Evans has left". Julia replies, "Yes, family problems".

Roger goes into the drawing room and, encountering Quentin for the first time, gasps, "You're back!", thinking it's the ghost. Quentin assures Roger he's not the ghost, but a descendant of the original Quentin Collins. Roger remarks, "The original Quentin Collins was a cruel, terrible man. A fascinating man. I'd like to learn more about him", but Quentin replies, "I don't know much about him. He only lived with my great-grandmother a short time, then left while he was quite young". Julia returns with a tray of coffee. Suddenly, Quentin's theme plays. Quentin freezes in shock. Roger asks, "What's the matter?" Quentin lies, "Nothing", but Roger says, "Don't tell me nothing's the matter when I can clearly see something is! Something is making you look frightened. What's frightening you? It's as though that music is frightening you". Amy comes into the room and announces, "Look what I found! Do you like it, Mr. Collins?" Roger asks, "What in the world is going on here? Amy, what are you doing?" Amy replies, "I was just playing an old record n the study. It sounds so old-timey"" Roger tells her, "Amy, I don't think we need to hear that music!", but Amy calmly notes, "Everyone who heard that music first are dead now!". Roger shushes her, "We don't need that kind of talk!", but Amy repeats, "Do you like it, Mr. Collins?" to Quentin. Quentin meekly replies, "Yes, I like it". The music stops. Amy gleefully says, "Let me play it again!". Roger sternly tells her, "No, you will not!". Amy complains, "Without Maggie, there's nothing to do!" Roger replies, "There are plenty of interesting books in this house. Let me find you some" and hauls her away.

Quentin, looking alarmed, tells Julia, "She knows who I am!". Julia is dubious, "No, she was terrified of you. She would never come into the room like that if she knew who you were", but Quentin reminds her, "She a different girl now. First she tried to kill Maggie, now she's going to try to kill me!".

Amy is in David's room with David telling him, "He heard the music and got afraid. He IS the same man! But Jeb will take care of him!". David replies, "Something's wrong. Jeb's frightened." Amy asks, "Of what?" David replies, "I don't know. I've got to read the book to find out so we can protect him from it. Get the book, behind the books on the fourth shelf". Amy gets the book as instructed. David remarks, "The book's had all the answers before. I hope it has one this time".

In the drawing room, Elizabeth is talking on the phone to Jeb, discussing making Roger a Leviathan immediately, "He's going to become one eventually, it's best that he become one now. Roger..." At that moment, Roger walks into the room and Elizabeth finishes, "is very proud of he estate" and hangs up. Roger asks, "I heard you discussing me. What about?" Elizabeth lies that she and Jeb were discussing the Carriage House. Roger grumbles, "Why are you letting him stay here?" Elizabeth replies, "He had nowhere else to go". Roger sarcastically asks, "They still rent rooms in Collinsport, don't they?" Elizabeth points out that Carolyn is fond of Jeb, but Roger replies, "She can do better than an itinerant nobody who can snap a shutter once in a while. And why is Megan Todd here?" Elizabeth replies, "She's all alone". Roger points out, "But she's married to the man who murdered Paul! These people should be sent packing! You're different! You, and even David and Amy have changed! Something's going on in this house I don't like, and I'm going to find out what it is! I promise you that!".

In David's room, David continues to look through the book. Amy asks, "Just what are we looking for? Can this thing harm Jeb?" David finds something and announces, "Not if we can get rid of it!" and reads from the book, "If the spirit of the enemy should manifest itself from beyond he grave, there is a way to dispel its presence..." Suddenly, the lights go out. They light a candle, but it almost immediately blows out. David tells her, "There's something weird here! Something from beyond the grave! Quick, get a flashlight so I can read the book before it can stop me!". Amy quickly gets a flashlight and aims it at the book. David resumes reading, "There is a way to dispel its presence...", but before he can finish the sentence, flies out of his hand onto the floor. David exclaims, "It doesn't want me to read the book! But I'm going to read it anyway!", but before he can pick the book up from the floor, it bursts into flames and burns up. Amy exclaims, "David! Let's get out of here!", but David replies, "It's not here anymore". Amy asks, "How do you know?" David replies, "Don't you feel it? The chill's gone. It came and did what it wanted to do, then it moved on". Amy asks, "What are we going to do without the book?" David replies, "I don't know, Amy, I really don't know".

Roger goes to the Old House looking for Barnabas. Quentin answers the door and tells Roger that Barnabas isn't home. Roger remarks, "I suppose I'll just continue my walk, then". Quentin replies, "I like to walk when confronted by trouble too". Roger asks, "Is it that apparent?" Quentin replies that it is. Roger says, "I think I'll sit down. I wanted to talk to Barnabas, but maybe it would be better to talk to you. You're a family member, but you're also a stranger seeing Collinwood for the first time. You might have a clearer perspective. Everything has become so strange to me. My sister seems a strange, my own son lies to me and disobeys me. It all adds up to something enormous I can't understand". Quentin tells him, "Roger, please sit down. I'm going to take a chance, a big chance. I'm going to tell you an interesting story, and if you believe it, you're taking a chance too". Roger asks, "What do you mean?" Quentin replies, "What I'm going to tell you could cost you your life".

David and Elizabeth are in the foyer. They try to telephone Jeb but find that the phones are down because of the storm. David tells Elizabeth to go and get Jeb, saying, "It's very important! Very important!"

At the Old House, Quentin has finished telling the whole story of the Leviathans to Roger. Roger exclaims, "To think that my own son is involved in something so incredible! I'm going to take him away from all this!", but Quentin warns him that taking David away could result in David's death. He adds, "We're trying to fight them, Barnabas, Julia and myself. We could use your help". Roger replies, "But if I fight them, I could lose my son in the most horrible way". Quentin asks, "What are you going to do, Roger?" Roger replies, "I don't know, Quentin, I don't know".

David is in his room writing in a notebook. He thinks to himself, "I wish Aunt Elizabeth would hurry. I wish she'd bring Jeb back here". The lights go out again. David exclaims, "That chill! It's come back! Whatever it is, it's come back!" He demands, "Who are you? I've got to know!" Suddenly, the bedroom door flies open. Outside are the legs of a man, apparently hanged from the ceiling. David calls out, "Who are you? What do you want?"

During the past several nights, the spirit of one long dead has made its presence known to a few people within Collinwood. Now, as the great house is engulfed by a raging storm, this strange, alien spirit is about to give another mysterious warning to young David Collins.

David cries out, "Help! Help! Someone help me! There's someone in the hall! He's hanging there!" Frightened, David rolls his wheelchair backwards in his room, putting distance between himself and the hanged man. The lights suddenly come back on. Bruno comes into the room and calls out, "David! What's happening?" David replies, "Didn't you see him? Out in the hallway, there's a man hanging there". Bruno replies, "I didn't see a thing there". David protests, "But there was a man just hanging there! I didn't imagine it, Bruno!" Bruno tells him, "I believe you. I'm just glad everything's OK now". David asks, "What are you doing here?" Bruno explains, "Jeb sent me". David asks, "Why didn't he come himself?" Bruno replies, "When he heard the book burned, he said he had to see a very important person about it. David, he's very concerned about you. The book burned last night, right?" David replies, "Right". Bruno asks, "Can you tell me about it?" David describes what happened, about how he felt a chill, how the lights went out, how he felt a presence in the room. Bruno asks, "Did you see anyone?" David replies, "No, but all of a sudden the book flew onto the floor and caught on fire". Bruno remarks, "We've got to figure this all out, David". David asks, "How?" Bruno replies, "I don't know. It's obvious that someone from beyond the grave is trying to contact you". David asks, "Why someone from beyond the grave?" Bruno replies, "Because only the apparitions of those killed dare try to harm the Leviathans!"

Down in the drawing room, Carolyn is reminding Sabrina Stuart that it's time to go to her appointment. Sabrina dejectedly remarks, "I don't know if changing my appearance is going to do any good. It might have the opposite effect seeing me the way I was when we were engaged". Carolyn says she finds this a strange idea, but Sabrina explains that Chris gets into strange moods sometimes. Bruno comes down into the room. Carolyn asks, "What are you doing here?" Bruno lies, "Jeb sent me to show David some of his photographs, but David started entertaining me with stories of your family's history. Are there any books on this history of the Collins's around here?" Carolyn replies, "There's one in the study. I'll go get it" and leaves. As soon as Carolyn is out of the room, Bruno says to Sabrina, "Glad to see you. I wonder if you know there's a full moon tonight". Sabrina lies, "I haven't even thought about that". Bruno asks, "Aren't you afraid?" Sabrina lies, "No. I'm making it a point to stay inside". Bruno remarks, "Good idea. I might not be there to save you this time". Carolyn returns with a book and gives it to Bruno, telling him, "This one goes back to the late 17th century". Bruno thanks her and leaves. Sabrina asks, "Carolyn, how well do you know that man?" Carolyn replies, "Very little, but he's a good friend of Jeb's". Sabrina confesses, "He makes me nervous, to be perfectly truthful". Carolyn replies, "He made me feel that way when we first met too, but once you get to know him, you'll find he's perfectly harmless".

Bruno has gone back up to David's room and is reading through the book he borrowed from Carolyn. David asks, "What are you reading about now?" Bruno replies, "Joshua Collins and the late 18th century". He asks, "David, how accurate is this history? It may not tell everything. If someone in this family did have dealings with the Leviathans, it might not be in this book". David asks, "Why does it have to be someone in this family? It could have been anyone, a servant, or someone staying here". Bruno replies, "Then I guess it wouldn't be in this book. I'm going back to Jeb..."Suddenly, the lights go out. Bruno asks, "What's happening?" David replies, "It's just like last night". Suddenly, Bruno starts to strangle. David exclaims, "What's happening??" Bruno gasps, "Something's got me by the throat! It's choking me! It's choking me! and starts running around the room thrashing and struggling. David cries out, "Bruno! What are you doing! Are you all right!" Suddenly, Bruno stops struggling and falls to the floor. The lights come back on. Around his neck is a noose. He quickly pulls it off. David gasps, "It's a noose!" Bruno looks at the noose and notes, "Yes, but it's all covered with mold, like it's been in someone's basement for a long time! Someone or something put it there. Whatever it was was trying to kill me!" David, looking frightened, says, "I don't think it would be good for anyone to stay in this room tonight". Bruno replies, "Me neither. I'll go and get someone to move you downstairs".

Carolyn returns with Sabrina. Sabrina has had her hair cut and permed, and dyed brunette. Sabrina worries, "I'm afraid Chris might not even recognize me". Bruno, coming down the stairs, remarks, "I almost didn't recognize you! You're very beautiful!" He tells Carolyn, "You'd better come up and see David. He said he was afraid of something". Carolyn and Bruno go upstairs.

Sabrina looks at herself in the mirror. A look of apprehension appears on her face.

Up in David's room, David is telling Carolyn, "It's just a feeling I have. I'm afraid to sleep here tonight". Carolyn prompts him, "Try to explain, David", but David, not wanting to tell her what happened earlier, tells her, "It's just a kind of feeling that someone's been in this room, someone none of us can see. What harm could it do if I slept somewhere else?" Carolyn replies, "I suppose it couldn't do any harm. We'll put you in another room".

There's a knock at the front door of Collinwood. Sabrina, looking nervous, pauses, then answers it. It's Chris Jennings. She turns away from him. Chris exclaims, "Sabrina!" Sabrina turns back around and says, "Is that all you're going to say to me, my name?" Chris says, "You're very beautiful". Sabrina asks, "Then you approve?" Chris replies, "Yes, very much". Sabrina remarks, "I thought you might not want to see me the way I was". Chris replies, "Seeing you this way makes me think no time has passed and no tragedy has happened". Suddenly, he gets a strange look on his face and he walks into the drawing room. Sabrina follows him and asks, "Chris, what's wrong?" Chris replies, "I almost lost my head there. Time HAS passed and the tragedy has been our specialty". Sabrina says, "That's something we're not going to talk about now. I want tonight to be very special. Please, for me?" They kiss. Bruno, now in the foyer, sees this. He quickly goes and hides in the room under the stairs. Sabrina asks, Chris, "Can we go to the cottage?" Chris asks, "What for?" Sabrina replies, "I want to talk to you alone. Please, Chris, this is very important". Chris replies, "OK". They leave. Bruno comes back out into the foyer. Carolyn comes down the stairs. Bruno asks, "Is David OK?" Carolyn replies, "Nothing wrong, he's just the world's greatest attention getter". She asks, "Where's Sabrina?" Bruno replies, "She left with a young man". Carolyn tells him, "That must have been Chris Jennings. Have you met him?" Bruno replies, "No". Carolyn remarks, "I hope the change didn't upset him". Bruno asks why it would. Carolyn replies, "I don't know. She was afraid that it might." Bruno remarks, "It looks like they love each other very much". Carolyn explains, "They were engaged to be married once, but something went wrong. She wants to get back together, but I don't know if he does. Chris is a very strange man". Bruno asks, "How?" Carolyn replies, "Once in a while he gets into these strange moods and disappears for days at a time". Bruno remarks, "I've never seen him around town". Carolyn explains, "He doesn't live in town. He lives in a house near here". Bruno suddenly excuses himself and says he has to leave.

In the cottage, Chris and Sabrina are kissing passionately. Suddenly, Chris pulls away and says, "We've got to stop!" Sabrina asks, "Why?" Chris replies, "We would just be repeating the past". Sabrina says, "The past wasn't so bad. We were just a few days from being married when I happened to see you transform..." Chris, looking surprised, asks, "Sabrina! You don't think we should still marry, do you?" Sabrina ask, "Why not? We still love one another, don't we?" Chris points out, "But if we married you'd be in constant danger", but Sabrina replies, "We'll find a way to live together! We'll find a way to help you! There must be a cure!" Chris suggests, "First we find a cure, then we talk about marriage". Sabrina says, "I won't give up!" and asks Chris to walk her to her car.

As soon as they leave the cottage, Bruno, carrying a flashlight, sneaks in and start to search the place. He opens a drawer and finds a length of chain, then a pair of handcuffs, then a revolver...

Chris returns and sits in a chair. He soon notices that the chain is on the desk, as is the handcuffs and a flashlight. He quickly goes up to the desk to look when he feels a gun in his back, and a voice saying, "I've been waiting to meet you for a long time. Why don't we go someplace and watch the moon come up together?"

Episode 960
(COL 19/DISK 2 #9)

Tape Date: February 10, 1970
Air Date: February 27, 1970 Friday
Writer: Gordon Russell
Director: Lela Swift
Worldvision Rerun: 734
Don Briscoe as Chris Jennings
Louis Edmonds as Roger Collins

Michael Stroka as Bruno
Ed Riley as Sheriff Davenport

A silent terror surrounds the great house at Collinwood. Chris Jennings had encountered that terror in a strange and sinister young man he's never seen before, a young man who may know Chris's terrible secret. Now at gunpoint, Chris has been taken to an abandoned crypt in the old Eagle Hill Cemetery.

Bruno takes Chris to an abandoned crypt somewhere. Chris asks, "What is this place?" Bruno replies, "Your home for the next 24 hours. I want you to make yourself comfortable". Chris asks, "Why have you brought me here?" Bruno replies, "I have certain suspicions about you, and tomorrow night will prove or disprove them to me - when the moon is full! Does the thought of a full moon frighten you, Mr. Jennings?" Chris lies, "Nothing you've said makes any sense". Bruno continues, "So nothing will happen when the moon is full?" Chris again lies, "I don't know what you're talking about. You're crazy!" Bruno continues, "If I'm wrong, and nothing happens during the full moon, I'll let you free, but if something does, I'll have no choice but to kill you!" Chris asks, "So you're going to sit here and wait?" Bruno replies, "No, I have other important things to do." Chris asks, "So you're going to leave me here alone?" Bruno replies, "No, I wouldn't want you to be lonely. You'll have company." Chris asks, "Who's going to be my jailer?" Bruno replies, "Someone with whom you're very familiar". Bruno summons a man into the room. Chris sees him and exclaims, "NO!!! SHERIFF DAVENPORT! It can't be!" Bruno asks, "Why not?" Chris replies, "Because he's dead!" Bruno explains, "He's been brought back to life, temporarily. We have the power to do that". Chris asks, "Who are 'we'?" Bruno refuses to tell him. The sheriff asks, "Why is he here?" Bruno replies, "When the moon is full, he turns into an animal that prowls the woods for victims." The sheriff asks, "What do you want me to do?" Bruno replies, "Chain him to the wall and never leave him alone". He hands the sheriff a revolver and continues, "This has 6 silver bullets. When the moon is full, watch for a transformation. When the transformation is complete, you are to kill him". He turns to Chris and says, "You look so pathetic, I almost hope nothing does happen" and leaves.

Jeb is at the Carriage House talking on the phone. He asks, "How long ago did leave Collinwood?....Two hours ago??? He should have been here by now!!!...That idiot! That imbecile!...No, you stay there in case anything happens. I'll wait here". Jeb hangs up. The door opens and Bruno walks into the room. Jeb yells at him, "I sent you to do a simple job!" Bruno replies, "I did it". Jeb asks, "It took you three hours to get some simple information?!" Bruno explains, "Something happened after I left Collinwood...", but before he can say what, Jeb interrupts, "Well, did something really happen to David, or was it just his imagination?" Bruno replies, "It really happened. I almost got killed their!" He tells Jeb how he suddenly felt a chill, how the lights went out, and how he felt something strangling, how when the lights came back on he found a noose around his throat. Jeb asks, "A noose?!" Bruno replies, "A very old one, covered with mold". Jeb asks, "Do you have it with you?" Bruno replies, "Of course", and opens his briefcase to get it. He is surprised to find that it isn't there and gasps, "I don't understand what happened! The noose is gone!" Jeb remarks, "Someone is playing tricks on us, someone is trying to get at us from beyond the grave". Bruno asks, "Who?" Jeb replies, "The spirit of Paul Stoddard. Bruno, we've got to do something!" Bruno suggests, "Maybe we should talk to Nicholas Blair about this". Jeb replies, "No, I want to handle this myself". Bruno remarks, "Well, I didn't say you couldn't". Jeb asks, "Why are you looking at me like that, like I'm afraid?" Bruno asks, "Afraid of what?" Jeb replies, "The spirits of the dead". Bruno asks, "Well, are you?" Jeb angrily replies, "I am not, and don't think that I am! I can see that smug look on your face!" and slaps him, then continues, "I lead, and you follow, Bruno! Don't you ever forget that!" Bruno growls, "No one does that to me, not even you!" and attacks Jeb. After they wrestle for a short time, Jeb quickly gets the upper hand and holds Bruno's arm in a hammerlock, telling him, "You've got guts, Bruno. That's the only reason I keep you here". Bruno shouts, "Let go of my arm!" Jeb replies, "Not until we settle something! Who's the leader, Bruno?" Bruno replies, "You are!" Jeb continues, "And who's the follower?" Bruno replies, "I am!" Jeb lets him out of the hammerlock. Jeb warns him, "Now you remember that if you want to stay alive", then continues, "You were going to tell me something. What happened after you left Collinwood?" Bruno lies, "That girl I rescued last time from the werewolf, she was at Collinwood tonight, and I took her back to town". Jeb asks, "Is that all you were going to tell me?" Bruno replies, "Yes". Jeb asks, "She didn't know anything about the werewolf?" Bruno replies, "If she did, she didn't tell me". Jeb complains, "The moon is going to be full tonight" Bruno lies, "It's no good. I don't thing she knows anything about the werewolf". He asks Jeb, "What are you going to do now?" Jeb replies, "I'm going to see David". Bruno asks, "Why?" Jeb answers, "To see if he remembers anything from the book about how to deal with the spirits of the dead" and leaves. Bruno grabs a glass, throws it against the wall and grumbles, "There is a way to deal with you, Jeb, and maybe I'll use it!"

The late Sheriff Davenport, holding a gun on Chris, announces, "It's almost time. I'm going to chain you to the wall". Chris replies, "And what if I don't want to be chained?" and makes a run for it, but the Sheriff quickly grabs him and holds him by the throat. Chris shouts, "Get your hands off me!!!". The Sheriff lets him go, saying, "You don't like the feel of death, do you?". He orders Chris to chain himself to the wall, and this time, Chris obediently does so.

Roger is in the drawing room at Collinwood. Jeb comes walking in through the front door. Roger angrily says, "Mr. Hawkes! It is customary to knock before entering!", but Jeb replies, "Mrs. Stoddard told me I could come and go as I please". Roger asks, "May I ask what you're doing here?" Jeb replies, "I dropped by to see David. I'm going to show him some photographs I took". Roger asks, "Photographs of what?" Jeb complains, "You ask a lot of questions, Mr. Collins. David and I are good friends". Roger replies, "And if I don't like my son's choice of friends, then it's up to me to do something about it, isn't it?" Jeb says, "What do you plan to do, Mr. Collins?" Roger replies, "I don't think you should be here. In fact, I forbid you from going up and seeing David". Jeb remarks, "Then you have as sticky problem. How are you going to stop me?" and goes upstairs. Roger makes a telephone call, "Yes...I'd like to speak to Quentin Collins...Quentin, it's Roger Collins...I've just met Jeb Hawkes for the first time, and I despise the man. I will not let him corrupt everyone I care about! I'm going to run him out of Collinwood! I don't care what happens! Someone has to tell him what an insufferable pig he is, and I'm going o do it, Quentin, I'm going to do it!" As he hangs up he is startled to see Jeb standing in the doorway. Jeb remarks, "You're probably wondering how much I heard, Mr. Collins." Roger replies, "I don't care how much you heard". Jeb continues, "I heard enough. It was Quentin Collins you were talking to. If you were talking to Quentin Collins, then you must know more about me that I thought. You probably thought that Quentin's stories were all nonsense, but they're not. They're all true. We don't accept defeat. Think about your son and your sister, think about how much you love them, and think about how you would feel if something were to happen to them." Roger growls, "You're a monster!" Jeb continues, "Don't mess with me! Don't rock the boat! You just leave everything the way they are!" and leaves. Roger angrily picks up the phone again and says, "Quentin Collins, please..."

At the Carriage House, Bruno is pacing around with an unhappy look on his face. Finally, he stops and stares into the fire, thinking, "I'm a lot smarter than Jeb thinks I am! I don't want to be a follower! I want to be a leader! I'm glad I didn't tell Jeb about the werewolf. If I had, it would have spoiled everything. If something were to happen to him, I'm sure I could become leader. There's no one else!" He goes to the window and looks outside, noting, "It'll be dark soon, Jeb will be dead, and I'll be the leader!" He puts on his coat and prepares to go out, but Jeb returns and asks, "Going somewhere, Bruno?" Bruno replies, "It's getting dark. I'm going to prowl the woods looking for the werewolf", but Jeb tells him, "Stay. I want to talk to you". He tells Bruno he's still worried about the spirit that seems to be haunting them, but he doesn't think it's Paul Stoddard anymore. Bruno asks, "Why?". Jeb replies, "It's just a feeling I have". Bruno impatiently says, "I've got to go hunt the werewolf", but Jeb says, "Why are you so anxious to leave? You leave when I say you can leave!"

At the crypt, Sheriff Davenport announces, "It's about time..." Chris begs, "You don't have to go through with this!", but Davenport replies, "I have my orders. I couldn't disobey them if I wanted to". Chris points out, "Why not? You're dead! You have nothing to lose!", but Davenport replies, "Even as I am now, I have something to lose". Davenport goes outside, looks up and sees the full moon. Inside, Chris screams as he is wracked with the transformation pains. The Sheriff goes back inside. Chris' hands have become paws. The Sheriff aims the gun at Chris...
