This night at Collinwood, there are those who will live in mortal fear until dawn. A full moon has risen, and they believe a werewolf will prowl the woods in search of a victim. But only two living persons know that for the past 24 hours Chris Jennings has been held prisoner in an abandoned crypt in the old Eagle Hill Cemetery. And now that the moon has risen, the transformation from man to beast has taken place, and Chris Jennings' double life may soon come to an end.

The sheriff prepares to shoot the werewolf when suddenly he hears Bruno's voice shout, "STOP!". He looks and sees that Bruno has returned. He protests, "You told me to do it!" Bruno replies, "Plans have changed". The sheriff asks, "Why?" Bruno replies, "That's my business". He looks at the werewolf and says, "Well, my suspicions have been confirmed. My, Mr. Jennings, how you have changed! Does my tone of voice anger you? Good! I want you to become good and mad, mad enough to rip a man to shreds! You should be grateful that I saved your life. I want you to show your gratitude. I have new plans for you, very important plans!"

Barnabas is staring out a window at the Old House calling Megan, "I need you! Come to me! Come to me! You must!"

Megan is at the Carriage House with Jeb. Jeb is pacing around nervously. Megan remarks, "I'm surprised you're not with Carolyn. What's wrong?" Jeb replies, "Nothing's wrong!" Megan recites the poem,

Even the man who is pure of heart
And says his prayers by night,
Can become a werewolf when the Wolf bane blooms
And the moon is full and bright.

Jeb shouts, "Shut up!" Megan asks, "Why? You taught that to me". Jeb says, "That thing is in the woods, looking for me and Bruno has to find it and kill it!" Megan hears a voice saying, "Megan, come to me! I need you! I need you!" Jeb, noticing something strange, asks, "What's the matter with you?" Megan replies, "I just remembered something I've got to do at Collinwood".

In the crypt, the Sheriff asks Bruno, "What are you going to do to him?" Bruno replies, "The first thing I'm going to do is to get him in the right frame of mind". The sheriff says, "I don't understand". Bruno tells him, "You will, in a minute". He takes a whip hanging on the wall and starts to tease the werewolf with the silver handle, "Ah, does the shiny metal bother you? Look at it! Go ahead and look at it!" The werewolf is infuriated. The Sheriff warns, "He'll get loose!" Bruno replies, "Go outside and wait. I'll handle this". The sheriff leaves. Bruno says to the werewolf, "I want you mad, mad enough to rip a man to shreds, because that's what you're going to do tonight! The man's name is Jeb Hawkes, and you're going to kill him for me!" He starts to viciously whip the werewolf, saying, "Go ahead! Get yourself good and wild! That's what I want!"

Megan arrives at the Old House. Barnabas tells her, "I need your help. There's something I want you to do for me. I received a note from Julia Hoffman. It says that Chris Jennings has been missing from his cottage since last night. He had agreed to go to Windcliff whenever the moon is full, but he's not there. Jeb must have him". Megan tells him, "Judging from his behavior tonight, he can't know anything about it". Barnabas continues, "Chris wouldn't have gone off by himself without telling Julia or Sabrina. What about Bruno?" Megan replies, "He hasn't been at the Carriage House". Barnabas asks, "Since when?" Megan gasps, "Since last night!!!" Barnabas orders her, "You must go back to the Carriage House and find out what you can. Jeb must know where Bruno is". Megan refuses, "I I don't want to go back to Jeb". Barnabas insists, "This is very important". Megan still refuses, "I just don't want to go. I want to stay here with you". Barnabas says, "Megan, don't make me force you. I don't want to do that". Megan replies, "Go on! I want you to!" Barnabas bites her. In the crypt, Bruno is panting with exertion from whipping the werewolf, who is now barely conscious. Bruno draws his arm back one more time and says, "One more for good measure!" and whips him once more. The werewolf loses consciousness. Bruno calls the sheriff back in and tells him, "Loosen the chains". The sheriff asks, "Why do you want to do that?" Bruno replies, "I have my reasons". The sheriff seems reluctant and asks, "Is that what Jeb wants?" Bruno lies, "Yes, that's what Jeb wants, and we want whatever Jeb wants, don't we?" The sheriff replies, "Yes", and starts to unshackle the werewolf. Bruno interrupts, "Wait. Wait until I'm outside. Then you loosen the chains and come out". Bruno leaves...and locks the door. The sheriff unshackles the unconscious werewolf and goes to open the door, only to find it locked. He hears a growl, looks back and sees that the werewolf has regained consciousness. Quickly, he rushes to get the whip, which Bruno has left on the floor, but he is not fast enough. The werewolf attacks him and rips him to shreds.

Jeb is still pacing around nervously at the Carriage House. Bruno returns. Jeb anxiously asks, "Well?" Bruno lies, "No sign of the animal". Jeb complains, "If you don't kill that animal tonight, well have to wait another whole month!" Bruno points out, "If I can't find it, I can't kill it". Jeb thinks a bit and says, "You know, I don't think that animal's in the woods. Every other time, I heard howling, and I don't hear anything tonight". Bruno agrees, "You know, now that you mention it, neither have I. He tells Jeb he'll still hunt for it in case it's out there. Jeb, however, is sure that it's not and announces, "I'm going over to see Carolyn. Call me if you find anything". After Jeb leaves, Jeb mutters, Yes, Jeb, I'll do that".

Megan comes to the Carriage House. Bruno asks, "What do you want?" Megan replies, "I came to talk to Jeb". Bruno tells her, "He's over at Collinwood with Carolyn". Megan sneers, "As usual" then asks, "You haven't found the werewolf yet, I take it?" Bruno replies that he hasn't. Megan asks, "And you haven't found out who it is?" Bruno replies, "Is there any reason to think that I have?" Megan replies, "No, just asking". Suddenly, she starts to wobble. Bruno asks, "Are you all right? You look a little pale?" Megan replies, "Yes", but then collapses. Bruno quickly loosens the scarf around her neck to let her breathe more easily, sees the bite marks and gasps, "The mark of the vampire!!! So that's her problem!" He thinks to himself, "You don't have to worry about me telling Jeb about this, Megan. I won't tell him. It's going to be our secret. You may be able to help me in the unlikely case my plan fails. You may give me the protection I need". He ties the scarf back on her throat, then goes over to a table where a gun is lying. He takes the gun unloads it of its 6 silver bullets, then reloads it with six ordinary lead bullets, smiling and saying, "Without the silver bullets in the gun, Jeb won't stand a chance! That animal will rip him to pieces!"

Megan regains consciousness and asks, "What happened?" Bruno tells her, "You passed out". Bruno tells her that Jeb will be very concerned about her. She begs him not to tell Jeb and worry him, saying it's only fatigue, that she hasn't slept well lately with her husband in prison and everything else going on. Bruno tells her, "I won't - under one condition, that you go back to Collinwood and get the rest that you need". Megan agrees to do so and leaves.

As soon as Megan leaves, Bruno calls Collinwood and asks for Jeb. He tells Jeb, "Jeb! Your worries are over! I've captured the werewolf!...Yes, captured! I've got him locked up in the crypt at Eagle Hill Cemetery. How soon can you get there?...Yes, I'll be waiting!"

Megan goes to the Old House. Barnabas asks, "Did you find out anything?" Megan replies, "Bruno hasn't found out anything about the werewolf". Barnabas worries, "I have a feeling that something terrible has happened to Chris".

Jeb arrives at the crypt and asks Bruno, "Is he still in there?" Bruno assures him that it is, "Do you think I'd let him escape after all the trouble I've gone through to capture him, do you?" Jeb muses, "I almost feel like letting him change back so we can see who it is". Bruno points out, "But you will, he'll change back as soon as he dies". Jeb orders, "Good, you go in there and kill him". Bruno asks, "Me? I thought you were going to do it. After all, he's after you, and I thought you should be the one to kill your principal enemy. Jeb, the honor is yours. Now if you would step inside..." He holds out the gun to Jeb and remarks, "Unless you want me to do it for you". Jeb, irritated by the implication of cowardice, snaps, "No, I'll do it!" and takes the gun. Bruno opens the door and Jeb steps in. Bruno closes the door, saying, "I'll close the door to make sure it doesn't escape". Inside, the werewolf looks at Jeb. Jeb shoots it but is surprised to find that the werewolf just flinches slightly and starts coming towards him. Jeb fires two more shots, but each time, the werewolf just flinches slightly and continues coming. Jeb screams in terror, "Bruno! It's not working! Bruno! Help!", but Bruno stands outside not moving a muscle, just smiling...

Although the inhabitants of the great house of Collinwood do not know it, there is a lethal struggle going on in the cemetery. A struggle who's outcome concerns them all. For Bruno's jealousy of Jeb has led him to use the captured werewolf for his own ambitions. Though Jeb does not know it, Bruno has replaced the silver bullets in Jeb's pistol with ordinary ones. And by so doing, turning the animal into a weapon of death.

Jeb fires once more at the werewolf. This time, he hits it right in the heart. Though this doesn't kill it, it seems to have some effect as the werewolf howls in pain and falls to his knees. But he gets right back up. Jeb, however, has in the meantime noticed the silver handled whip lying on the floor. He picks it up and uses it to hold the werewolf at bay.

At Collinwood, Carolyn comes down the stairs into the foyer. Quentin comes in through the front doors. Quentin remarks, "What a nice surprise to see you alone. You're not usually alone these days". Carolyn remarks, "Jeb's just left. He'll be back soon". Quentin tells her, "I wish he's never come back". Carolyn asks, "Why do you, Barnabas and Julia dislike Jeb so much?" Quentin replies, "Because he's no good for you". Carolyn angrily says, "I'll be the judge of that. I think he's very good for me. In fact, the longer I know him, the more I feel I love him". Quentin says, "Please don't say that!". Carolyn continues, "If you or any of the others say anything more against Jeb, I'll have to find some new friends!"

Megan is at the Carriage House. Bruno comes in. Humming happily, he pours himself a brandy. Megan notes, "You're in a good mood". Bruno asks, "Why shouldn't I be?" Megan replies, "I think you should stay sober while there's a full moon". Bruno tells her, "The werewolf is Jeb's problem. I'll let him handle it. I'll handle Barnabas Collins". Megan asks, "What do you mean?" Bruno replies, "You'll never believe me, but he's a vampire!". Megan gasps, "That's impossible!", feigning shock. Bruno continues, "It's true! This is where we can show Jeb how useful we can be to him". Megan asks, "What do you mean?" Bruno replies, "A vampire must return to his coffin during the day to rest. If we can find his coffin, we can destroy him during the day. This is where you can help. You and Barnabas are friends". Megan tries to lie, "That's where you're wrong. Barnabas Collins and I are no longer friends", but Bruno continues, "He's still fond of you. You could get him to tell you where his coffin is if you put your mind to it, couldn't you?"

Quentin is walking around in the woods. He finds the wounded werewolf and tries to talk to it, "Chris, I want to help you! I really do! Somehow, I've got to make you understand what I'm saying!" The werewolf suddenly collapse. Quentin looks up and notes, "The dawn! The night is over!"

Bruno is happily sipping a brandy. He is shocked to see Jeb come into the cottage. Jeb growls, "Thought I was dead, didn't you? I got away! You won't Bruno, you won't!" Bruno feigns ignorance, "Jeb, what are you talking about? What happened?" Jeb replies, "I was betrayed by a rat!" Bruno asks, "Who?" Jeb replies, "You know! Why didn't you stay? You took the silver bullets out of the gun and left me there to die! But you didn't know a silver handled whip was in there." Bruno denies this, saying he was so certain Jeb would kill the werewolf easily he saw no point in staying and went to the Blue Whale. Jeb doesn't believe him. Bruno tells him, "I can prove I'm loyal. I found something about Megan, something I was going to tell you about when you came in." Jeb tells him, "You'd better talk fast!". Bruno continues, "Megan has been bitten by a vampire!". He explains how he saw the bite marks when she fainted. Jeb gasps, "Barnabas must have gotten to her!" Bruno continues, "And she's a danger to us now. She must have changed those silver bullets!" Jeb says, "I won't believe it until I see it". Bruno says, "I'll show you tomorrow", but Jeb is impatient, "No, tomorrow, TONIGHT! I want to see it!".

In her room at Collinwood, Megan is sleeping. She moans, "Come to me, wherever you are! Come to me, Barnabas!" Unknown to her, Jeb and Bruno have snuck into the room and have heard every word she's said. Jeb says, "Poor Megan!". Bruno, surprised, says, "Poor Megan!? She set you up to be killed!", but Jeb replies, "Barnabas made her do it". Bruno says, "Well, Barnabas isn't going to be able to make her do anything anymore! We've got to destroy her!", but Jeb blames himself, "I made the mistake. I made Barnabas into a vampire, and he did this to her. I'm not going to make any more mistakes! I'm going to take care of Barnabas, Quentin Collins, Willie Loomis and Julia Hoffman for good!" Bruno asks, "What do you mean?" Jeb replies, "You'll find out! You'll find out!"

Jeb and Bruno go down to the foyer. There, Jeb instructs Bruno to stay with Megan and see that nothing happens to her and that she never leaves her room. Bruno protests, "But that means I won't be able to help you". Jeb tells him that in spite of his explanation for why he left, he doesn't completely trust him anymore. He tells him, "If anything happens to Megan, I'd hate to see what happens to you!".

Quentin is in the woods with Chris, who's transformed back from the werewolf. Quentin is sympathetic, "I know how you feel. I know what it is to awaken covered with blood and want to die, but I survived..." Chris points out, "But you didn't have an enemy who knew your secret!" He asks, "I just want you to go ahead and kill me. Let's not pretend there's any hope for me. Nothing's worked. The portrait didn't, and neither did Sabrina's Moon Poppy. Quentin, I am what I am because of you! I want you to kill me right now!" Quentin refuses, and wonders, "I wonder why Bruno didn't. Maybe he has other plans for you. Maybe YOU killed HIM. What do you remember?" Chris replies that the last thing he remembers being guarded by the Sheriff and can't remember anything after the transformation. Quentin tells him, "Go back to the cottage and get cleaned up. We've got to find out what happened!"

Carolyn is at Paul Stoddard's grave. Jeb shows up. Carolyn asks, "How did you know I'd be here?" Jeb replies, "Mrs. Stoddard told me. Why are you here?" Carolyn explains, "This was where my father was buried. This is my way of letting him know I'm always thinking about him". She starts to cry. Jeb hugs her to comfort her. Carolyn moans, "I feel so all alone!" Jeb replies, "You're not alone. I'm here". Carolyn asks, "But for how long? When I was a little girl, my father went away. He came back, but I've lost him again! I feel I'm always going to lose everyone". Jeb assures her, "You're not going to lose me!" They talk about whether Paul's killer will ever be found briefly. Jeb then notes, "Something else is bothering you". Carolyn replies, "I had a quarrel with Quentin. I've been thinking about it all day. He says that I shouldn't see you". Jeb asks, "What else did he say?" Carolyn replies, "Nothing. I wouldn't let him say anything against you. I told him if he did, he and I wouldn't be friends anymore". Jeb growls, "He had no right to upset you like that!"

Megan comes down the stairs and sneaks out the front door, but is intercepted by Bruno. He asks, "Where are you going?" Megan replies, "Just out for a walk". Bruno points out, "But there's a storm coming up". Megan starts to say, "I couldn't sleep", but Bruno pulls her scarf off and says, "We know what you are! We know all about you! Now Jeb wants you inside, and that's where you're going to go!" and forces her back into Collinwood.

Quentin and Chris go to the crypt. Quentin goes in, looks around, sees the remains of the sheriff and says, "At least we know you didn't kill Bruno". Chris asks, "Then what did I kill. Quentin replies, "You put a dead man back where he belongs. At least he won't be walking around anymore".

Jeb Hawkes is standing in the cemetery besides four graves that look relatively new,

Demery Pace

Amos Ross

John Hart Thomas Finley
1935-1970 1930-1970 1932-1970 1927-1970

Jeb chants, "Will you rise from your graves? Will you follow me? Oh God of the underworld, hear me, your servant, give me these dead, and I will give you five new souls for all eternity! Make them my servants! Now!" A hand starts coming through the soil of each grave.

A stormy night at Collinwood. A night for revenge. And one twisted and raged young man is determined to silence the enemies who are against him. And so unable to trust one living human being, he is forced to call upon the dead to help him with his plan.

Eventually, each of the corpses digs out of its grave and stands at attention behind its gravestone. Jeb announces, "I am your leader! There is something to be done! Five new souls will join you in the underworld, Barnabas Collins, Quentin Collins, Roger Collins, Willie Loomis and Julia Hoffman!" New graves must be dug tonight, they will be in them tomorrow!"

At the Old House, Julia is giving Barnabas his anti-vampirism injection. She notices a look on his face and asks him, Barnabas, what's wrong?" Barnabas replies, "I have a strange feeling, a premonition that Jeb is planning something." He remarks that maybe they could use Megan to find out what. Julia, puzzled, asks why Megan would help them. Barnabas stammers, "Well, they've framed her husband for murder", but Julia says, "Megan's loyal to them. She doesn't care". Barnabas quickly changes the subject, "These injections, they don't seem to be working. I feel no difference, no change the way I felt before..." Neither notice that Jeb is watching outside spying on them through the window. He thinks to himself, "How stupid of me not to have guessed! Dr. Hoffman! A doctor with a very strange practice!"

In the drawing room at Collinwood, Megan thinks to herself, "It's dark again. Why doesn't he call for me? Doesn't he know how much I need him?"

Jeb goes into the foyer of Collinwood and finds Elizabeth there. He orders her to watch Megan all night, and make sure she's never alone. Elizabeth asks, "What's happening?", but Jeb just replies, "If Barnabas Collins comes, make sure she's not left alone with him".

After Jeb leaves, Elizabeth goes into the drawing room and turns on the lights. Megan complains, "The lights! They're bothering me!" and complains that she's cold. Elizabeth puts a blanket on her.

At the Old House, Barnabas is thinking to himself, "I shouldn't have told Julia as much as I did about Megan. She suspects something. Why do I feel this sense of doom tonight? What is happening to me? Why do I feel this way? Blood! I must have blood! I've never felt the need so strong before! Megan!"

At Collinwood, Megan suddenly says, "I thought I heard someone call me!"

At the old house, Barnabas continues to says, "Megan! Megan!", but suddenly stops and says, "I cannot! She'll die! Where is Julia? She can help me, surely!"

At Collinwood, Elizabeth tells Megan, "It's your imagination". Megan replies, "Yes it was". She tries to tell Megan to go up to her room, but Megan refuses. Elizabeth asks, "Is there anything I can do for you?" Megan replies, "Could you bring me a glass of water? My throat's dry". When Elizabeth leaves to get the water, Megan sneaks out through the front door.

At the Old House, Barnabas decides he can't kill Megan but thinks to himself, "I must leave this house and find someone else. I must find blood! I must!" But before he can leaves, Megan comes in and asks, "Barnabas, why didn't you summon me? You need me! You need me so!" Barnabas tells her, "Go back to Collinwood, for you own sake", but Megan replies, "I do nothing for my own sake now! You don't know how much it pleases me that you need me so". She starts to approach him. Barnabas orders, "Megan! Don't come any closer!", but she continues to approach...

Julia returns to Collinwood. Elizabeth asks Julia if she happened to see Megan outside. Julia replies that she hasn't and asks why she wants to know. Elizabeth explains that Megan seemed very sick at first, but left. Julia asks, "What's wrong with her?" Elizabeth replies, "I don't know. All I know is that she complained it was cold and that the light bothered her eyes". Julia, knowing what this means, quickly turns and leaves.

At the Old House, Barnabas weakens and bites Megan. Julia comes into the room and exclaims, "Barnabas!" Barnabas lets go of Megan and puts her in a chair. While Julia examine her, Barnabas moans, "I didn't want to her come here! She knew something was wrong with me! Don't look at me like that, Julia! I didn't choose to do this!" Julia replies, "I know you didn't, Barnabas". Barnabas asks, "Is she going to be all right?" Julia replies, "She's dead". Barnabas moans, "Oh no!" Julia tries to tell him, "If you hadn't killed her, she'd still be fighting against us", but Barnabas says, "I wanted to kill all of Jeb's followers, but not in this way". Barnabas reminds her that Megan will rise as a vampire if they don't stake her. Julia says, "Barnabas! We must! We must do it before the sun rises!" Barnabas agrees, saying he doesn't want her to have to go through what he's going through. He muses, "We must do to her what my enemies have been trying to do to me. The hammer and the stake. We go downstairs and prepare the stake". They both go downstairs.

At Collinwood, Jeb is yelling at Elizabeth, "You are stupid! How could you let her get out? Go to your room?" Elizabeth asks, "What happens now?" Jeb replies, "You don't deserve to know! To your room!" Elizabeth complains, "This is still my house!", but Jeb replies, "Do you really think so, Mrs. Stoddard? GO!" Elizabeth goes upstairs. Jeb turns out the lights and leaves.

Barnabas and Julia come back up with the hammer and stake. Barnabas tells Julia to go back downstairs to avoid seeing what must happen, but Julia refuses to. They look at the chair and are shocked to see that Megan is gone...

Outside Collinwood, Jeb is telling the four dead, "You know what to do. I won't be with you. I have something to do to prevent one of my people from becoming like you. You know your orders! Carry the out!" The zombies enter Collinwood. Three of them go upstairs, while one of them hides in the shadows in the foyer.

Barnabas and Julia go to Collinwood and pause outside the front doors. Julia tells Barnabas, "You look for Megan and come tell me when you've found her. I'll be up in my room trying to find out what's wrong with the serum". Barnabas leaves.

Julia goes in and goes up the stairs, not seeing the zombie hiding in the shadows of the foyer. Julia goes into her room, turns on the lights, then sits down at the writing desk. She takes out a vial of the serum and a test tube, and starts to pour some of the serum into the tube. She hears a sound out in the hall and goes to see what it is. She opens to door only to find a zombie standing there. She quickly slams the door shut, but two other zombies come out from hiding behind the curtains in the room and one of the grabs her as the third bursts in through the door. Julia screams, "NO!!!", but one of the zombies slaps her unconscious. The zombies leave, one of them carrying Julia in his arms...

Horror stalks the halls of the great house of Collinwood. For Jeb has vowed to kill Barnabas Collins and all those helping him. Now, dead men, servants of Jeb Hawkes, carry out his mission of revenge. And already they have found their first victim.

Roger comes home and comes into the foyer. He sees the zombies carrying Julia down the stairs and exclaims, "My God!" He shouts, "Put her down!", but one of the zombies grabs and holds him while another hits him and knocks him out could. The zombies leave with Julia, leaving Roger lying unconscious on the floor.

Julia awakens and finds herself alone in room in the Carriage House. She thinks to herself, "The Carriage House! Why have they left me alone?" She goes and opens the front door, only to find a zombie outside guarding it. She quickly closes the door. She hears a noise and turns and sees that Sky Rumson has entered the room by another door. She asks, "Why have I been brought here?" Sky replies, "No questions. You are here and alive. Just enjoy it". Julia gasps, "The men who brought me here, they're dead! Who has the power to bring back the dead? Nicholas? Or Jeb?". Sky once again says, "No questions", but Julia continues, "Yes, questions. Why have I been brought here and where is Jeb Hawkes?" Sky replies, "Don't worry. Jeb is here". Julia looks at a door and asks, "Is that his room now?" Sky replies, "Yes". Julia asks, "Why am I being told all this? Are you going to kill me?" Sky replies, "Not if you do as I ask". Julia asks, "And what is that?", but Sky just replies, "You'll know soon enough".

At Collinwood, Quentin returns and finds Roger unconscious on the floor. He revives him and Roger, still groggy, stutters, "Dead men! Help me! Dead men! They've got Julia!"

At the Carriage House, Sky is trying to sound friendly, "Want some sherry?" Julia replies, "No thanks". She warns him, "I will not tell you where Barnabas Collins' coffin is, if that's what you want to know." She suddenly hears a breathing noise coming from Jeb's room and gasps, "He's in there, in his other form!" Sky asks, "Would you like to see what he looks like?" Julia emphatically replies, "NO! I saw what he did to Paul Stoddard!" Sky tells her, "You are going to go into that room!" Julia screams, "NO!!!", Sky drags her to the door, opens the door, throws her in and closes the door. Julia begs, "Let me out! Let me out! Please! Please help me! Let me out!" She turns and sees Jeb in his "other form" and screams, "Don't touch me! AHHHHHH! Don't touch me! Don't touch me!" Suddenly, Jeb transforms back into his human self and asks a shocked Julia, "You thought I was going to kill you, didn't you, Doctor? Well, I still might. That depends on you, that depends entirely on you".

At Collinwood, Roger and Quentin are discussing where Jeb might have taken Julia. They dismiss the Carriage House as too obvious, saying Jeb is too smart to take her there. Quentin suggests the crypt in the cemetery, saying the Leviathans have used that before.

At the Carriage House, Jeb orders Sky, "Go to Collinwood and see if Megan has returned". Sky leaves. Julia asks Jeb, "Why have you brought me here?" Jeb replies, "I know what you're doing for Barnabas. You're curing him. You did it once before. If you can help him, you can help me". Julia asks, "Help you?" Jeb replies, "Yes, help me. You saw me in there! Do you think I like it?" Julia asks, "You have no control over it?" Jeb replies, "I can stall it or a few minutes, but then it happens. I used to accept it, but I never want to be like that again, ever since I saw the look in someone's eyes when she saw me like that". Julia asks, "They make you go into that room?" Jeb replies, "Yes". Julia asks, "And you want me to make you like us?" Jeb replies, "I want you to make me human! Will you help me?" Julia replies, "I can't. I don't anything about what happens to you to change you into that other form". Jeb points out, "You didn't know anything about vampires when you started helping Barnabas, did you?" Julia gives in, "There may be some experiments I could do". Jeb asks, "Just tell me you'd be willing to try!" Julia tells him, "On one condition. You must promise me you will leave Barnabas Collins alone". Jeb agrees, "All right. I'll leave Barnabas alone". Julia tells him, "Send someone to Collinwood for my medical kit. I have to draw some blood and make some tests. I'll set up a table and work here".

At Collinwood, Roger and Quentin are discussing what to do. Quentin is chomping at the bit to do something, whereas Roger suggests some restraint, "But Quentin, we have no plan!" Quentin replies, "I don't care! I'm going to the crypt!" Roger protests, "But that would be suicide!" Their argument is interrupted by a knock at the front door. Rogers it. The caller announces, "My name is Sky Rumson. I came to see Mrs. Stoddard. She's expecting me". Quentin suddenly calls loudly from the drawing room, "Yes she is, Roger! Send him in!" and rushes to the foyer to welcome him in. He tells Sky, "She said you were to wait for her in the drawing room. She'll be down soon". They all go into the drawing room. In there, Quentin suggests, "Why don't you look at some of the paintings we have in here. You have an interest in art, according to what Angelique told me". As Sky looks at the paintings, Quentin quietly maneuvers himself over to a coupled of scab barded swords hanging crossed ornamentally on the wall and remarks, "Do you also collect weapons?" Sky, starting to become impatient, says, "Look, I didn't come to look at art, I came to see Mrs. Stoddard..." Suddenly, Quentin pulls one of the swords from its scabbard, points it inches from Sky's throat and says, "There's someone we'd like to see too. Julia Hoffman. Where is she?" Sky replies, "I don't know". Quentin says, "You're a bad liar! Where is she?" Sky again says, "I don't know anything!" Quentin threatens, "Mr. Rumson, maybe a long scar in your throat will help you remember!" and inches the sword closer. Sky, frightened, blabs, "She's at the Carriage House! He's there! I saw her! He brought her there!" Quentin asks, "And the dead men?" Sky replies, "There are four of them, one guarding each door". Quentin asks, "And is there any password?" Sky replies, "Live". Quentin hands the sword to Roger and tells him, "Watch him. I'm going to get Julia!" and leaves. Roger holds the sword on Sky. Suddenly, he is distracted by someone looking in through the window. It's Megan. Sky takes advantage of this by knocking the sword out of Roger's hand, and running out of the drawing room, closing the doors behind him. Roger tries to open the doors but finds that Sky has locked him in.

Sky is outside with Megan. He tells her, "You can't go back to Collinwood, Megan. Roger Collins is on to us. And you can't go back to Jeb either. For some reason, he's angry with you." Megan assures him, "I'll be all right". Sky says, "I must be getting back", but Megan orders, "Look at me!" Sky looks at her and suddenly announces, "You're beautiful!". He seems to be in a trance. Megan grabs him and bites him.

Jeb alone in the front room of the Carriage House fretting, "Time! All I need is time!". Suddenly, the front door bursts open and Quentin steps in. He demands, "Where is she, Hawkes?" Jeb claps and says, "A most sensational entrance, Mr. Collins! I didn't dare hope you'd show up. I have a surprise for you!". Quentin growls, "Did you kill her?" and attacks Jeb, but the dead come bursting in and grab Quentin. Quentin tries to say something, but Jeb says, "I've heard about enough from you!" and gives a command to the dead, whereupon one of them slugs Quentin and knocks him out.

Jeb orders the dead to take Quentin into his "changing" room. In there for some reason is an empty coffin. Jeb orders the dead to put Quentin into the coffin. As they are doing so, Jeb remarks, Now do not grieve, Gentlemen, for he is an old, old man, far older than any of you!"

Jeb and the dead go to the cemetery and put Quentin in a grave. As the zombies shovel dirt over him, Jeb muses, "May he rest in peace. Soon he will awaken and find himself in a coffin, with the air he's breathing becoming less and less until there is none! I told you I had a surprise for you, Quentin, and I always keep my promises!"

It has been a night of terror on the Collinwood estate. A young man named Jeb Hawkes has decreed that each of his enemies must be destroyed. And for Quentin Collins, he has planned a cruel and hideous act.

When the zombies have buried Quentin, Jeb tells him, "You can leave now". He muses, "The only thing, Quentin Collins, is that I can't see your face when you open your eyes and see what's happened. Bye, old man!"

Quentin awakens, sees where he is and gasps, "Oh my God! He's buried me alive! And there's no way out! No way out!"

Nicholas Blair enters the Carriage House and takes off his gloves. Hearing a tinkling sound, he opens the door to Jeb's room and finds Julia in there. Julia puts her body between Blair and the table so he doesn't see her medical stuff. He remarks, "Well, well, well! Dr. Hoffman, I presume!" Julia remarks, "I was told you were back, Mr. Blair". Blair asks, "By whom?", but then before she can answer, says, "Never mind. I can guess it was Barnabas. What have we here? Have you switched sides from Barnabas Collins to Jeb Hawkes?" Julia doesn't answer. Blair prompts her, "Well speak up, Doctor. I've never known you to be at a loss for words before". Julia still doesn't answer. Blair says, "All right, you leave me to my own powers of deduction". He grabs her arms and pulls her away from the table and sees her medical equipment. He remarks, "Well, aren't you the busy one. What exactly are you doing?" Julia refuses to tell him, "I can't tell you. He'd kill me". Blair asks, "Who? Jeb? Maybe he didn't tell you . I give the orders". Julia still doesn't tell him, but Blair guesses that Jeb wants to be human. I don't know who's the bigger fool, Jeb or you. Did you really think you could succeed?" He sends all her test tubes crashing to the floor by swiping them off the table with his cane and announces, "Your experiments are over!"

There is a knock at the door of the Old House. Barnabas answers the door and is surprised to find that it's Maggie. He asks, "What are you doing here?" Maggie exclaims, "Barnabas! I had to see you!" Barnabas tells her, "You should have stayed at Windcliff! It's not safe for you here!" Maggie explains, "I was sitting in my room, and I just kept thinking about Quentin. I kept thinking he was in danger!" Barnabas dismisses this, "It's just your imagination", but Maggie replies, "It's not my imagination! I've never felt this way before. When did you last see Quentin?" Barnabas replies, "Last night. I'm sure he's all right. What do you think happened to him?" Maggie says, "I don't know, all I know is something did, and he doesn't have much time left, maybe only an hour!"

In the coffin, Quentin is thinking, "The air's running out! In a little while, there'll be none left! Maggie, please hear my thoughts! I love you, Maggie!"

Barnabas tells Maggie, "You shouldn't have come here. You should have sent someone". Maggie exclaims, "Quentin is counting on me, and I'm going to find him!" and runs out the door. Barnabas goes running after her.

In the front room of the Carriage House, Julia asks Blair, "What do you plan to do with me?" Blair replies, "You can calm your nerves. I have no further plans for you. In fact, I'll let you go free on one condition - that you stay away from us. And you can impart that to Barnabas Collins". Jeb comes into the room. Not seeing Nicholas in the corner, he asks Julia, "Are you leaving so soon, Doctor? You and I had an agreement!" Nicholas interrupts, "Your agreement has been cancelled, Jeb! Now step out of the way and let the lady go!" Jeb does so and Julia leaves. Jeb growls, "I'm getting tired of you ordering me around, Nicholas!" Blair tells Jeb he knows he wants to become human. They argue about this. Blair warns Jeb about trying to get rid of his other self, saying, "That's all you are. Destroy that and you will cease to exist!", but Jeb remarks, "How do you know?", apparently not believing him. Blair announces, "If I go on letting you make the decisions, our plan will fail! The ceremony will take place TONIGHT!" Jeb protests, "But I'm not ready", but Blair orders, "Call Carolyn with some excuse to get her to come here tonight. She will be taken to the shrine and the ceremony performed! IS THAT CLEAR?" Jeb meekly replies, "Yes, that's clear".

Maggie is walking around Eagle Hill Cemetery. Barnabas is walking with her. Maggie senses something. Barnabas asks, "Maggie, what is it?" Maggie replies, "Quentin, he's somewhere nearby. I can feel his presence". She goes to a mound of dirt and exclaims, "Barnabas! Come here!" Barnabas goes over and remarks, "The ground here has just been dug!" Maggie adds, "And there's no tombstone!" Barnabas asks, "What are you saying?" Maggie exclaims, "Quentin is buried here! He's buried alive!" They both start digging frantically.

Carolyn is with Jeb at the Carriage House snuggling together in front of the fire. Carolyn asks, "Tell me what's wrong, Jeb". Jeb replies, "What makes you think anything's wrong?" Carolyn says, "You sounded so urgent on the phone when you asked me here". Jeb stutters, "Carolyn, I asked you here because....I'm not very good at saying how I feel". Carolyn talks him, "Try". Jeb continues, "I've never met anyone like you. When you look at me or touch me, I feel like this was how I was meant to be". Carolyn says, "I don't understand". Jeb tries to explains, "I'm not what I seem. There's another me, one I don't want you to see". Carolyn says, "I don't know what you're trying to say". Jeb says, "I love you, and I always want it to be this way no matter what happens" Carolyn assures him, "Nothing's going to happen! We're going to be together. I love you very much and nothing's going to change that".

Barnabas and Maggie have dug up the coffin. Maggie exhorts, "Hurry, Barnabas! Hurry!" Barnabas opens the coffin. Quentin is indeed in there. Maggie gasps, "Oh, Quentin! Quentin, are you all right?" Quentin replies, "I knew you'd come!" Barnabas and Maggie help him out of the coffin. Quentin assures them, "I'm all right. My legs are still a little shaky, that's all". Maggie asks, "Who did this to you?" Quentin replies, "Jeb Hawkes. He said he had a something special planned for me. Whatever he is, he's a man of his word".

At the Carriage House, Jeb and Carolyn are kissing passionately. Carolyn pulls away and asks, "Jeb, you're still disturbed about something, aren't you?" Jeb replies that he is. Carolyn asks, "Can't you tell me what it is?", but Jeb says, "I can't. Carolyn, I've got to go do something, something very important. I want you to wait here until I come back". Carolyn asks, "What?" Jeb replies, "I can't tell you right now. Please trust me". They kiss again, then Jeb leaves.

Barnabas and Maggie bring Quentin back to the Old House. Julia asks, "What happened?" Maggie replies, "Jeb tried to kill him!" Barnabas tells Julia to wait down here, saying he wants to talk to her, then helps Maggie take Quentin upstairs. The front door opens. Julia looks and is shocked to see that Jeb has come into the room. Julia asks, "What do you want?" Jeb replies, "You've got to find a way to help me - tonight!" Julia refuses, saying she knows he tried to kill Quentin. Jeb promises, "A great many things will change if I change, including living and letting live. Something has happened to make me see things differently." Julia tells him, "Jeb, even if it were possible...", but Jeb interrupts, "It's got to be possible! And it's got to happen tonight!" Julia asks, "Why tonight?" Jeb explains, "If not tonight, it'll be too late!" Julia asks, "Too late for what?" Jeb says, "Just too late". They both suddenly notice that Barnabas is on the stairs watching them with an angry look on his face.

At the Carriage House, Nicholas Blair comes into room and says Hello to Carolyn. She is very cold towards him, and he muses on why she doesn't like him, then says, "But relationships have a way of changing!". He takes out a shiny cigarette case and shines it in her face, saying, "See if you can find the center of the light. Deeper...deeper..." Soon he has her hypnotized. He opens he front door and one of the dead come in. Blair orders it, "Take her to the shrine and wait for me there".

Maggie comes downs into the living room of the Old House and looks for Barnabas. Quentin comes down too. Maggie asks, "What are you doing down here?" He replies, "I couldn't help it. I saw this mark on my hand". He shows her that the trident mark has reappeared on his hand. Maggie holds up her and says, "Mine too. That must be how I was able to find you. What's happening to us?" Quentin replies, "I don't know, but I don't want to fight it. I love you". Maggie replies, "I love you" and they kiss.

Blair is at one end of the Leviathan shrine, and Jeb is standing with Carolyn at the other. He is holding the Leviathan box. Blair tells him, "Put the box on the altar, and take your place next to her". Jeb does as ordered. Nicholas, waving a scepter about, starts to chant, "Prince of Darkness! I call upon you to witness this ceremony! I call upon you to bless the union of these two creatures! I call upon all the dark creatures of the night to summon you here! You must be a witness to this ceremony! I call upon the Seven Plagues, and the charred, dark stars that reigned at the beginning, to bring you here to witness the vows that will be given here tonight..." When he finishes, he gives the scepter to Jeb and orders, "Begin the vows". Jeb suddenly shouts, "Barnabas! NOW!" Barnabas comes running out from the trees, grabs Carolyn, and drags her away. Blair shouts, "STOP IT!". Jeb raises the scepter and smashes the Leviathan box. Nicholas exclaims, "YOU FOOL! DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'VE DONE? WE'VE GOT TO GET AWAY OR WE'RE BOTH GO UP WITH IT!" and drags Jeb away. The altar starts to glow brightly, then explodes into a thousand pieces. Suddenly, Jeb grabs his abdomen, groans in pain and collapses onto the ground and lies there twitching...

On this night, one evil man will visit upon the Collins estate. A kind of terror never known before. He has placed Carolyn Stoddard in a deep trance, and has chosen her to take part in a strange and terrible ceremony. A ceremony which could end in her destruction.

Nicholas growls, "It's all over now, thanks to you! The Leviathan cause is dead! And this will cause all those we control to be released. Does this please you?" Jeb gets up off the floor and, seemingly all right and pain free, replies, "I warned you I want to remain as I am now." Nicholas counters, "You've succeeded only in destroying yourself!" Jeb, puzzled, asks, "What do you mean?" Nicholas explains, "You cannot change into your true self. What else is there left?" Jeb replies, "Me!", but Nicholas says emphatically, "NO! You are merely a shell, a manifestation. You exist only through sheer force of mind. When the shrine exploded, you should have been destroyed!" Jeb points out, "I'm here, alive and breathing", but Nicholas warns him, "Only through the force of your will! How long do you think you can keep it up? Not long, I assure you! Your time is running out!"

Bruno is in the front room of the carriage house sitting at a table holding a knife and a red delicious apple. Across the room in a chair is one of the walking Dead. Bruno cuts a piece from the apple and is about to eat it when he smells smoke. He goes to investigate and when he opens the door the Jeb's room he sees that it's on fire inside. He goes to the Dead and orders, "There's a hose outside. Go get it", but is surprised to see the dead suddenly disintegrate into a skeleton. Bruno gasps, "What's happening here? I've got to go get Nicholas!"

Barnabas brings Carolyn back to Collinwood. They run into Elizabeth in the foyer. She gasps, "Carolyn! What's the matter?" Barnabas tells her, "She can't hear you. She's been put into a trance. Help me bring her upstairs, I'll explain there, but first, we've got to get her up to her room".

Bruno encounters another one of the walking Dead in the woods. Like the other one, this one has become a skeleton. Bruno sees Nicholas standing there and says, "Nicholas! All our dead have become skeletons! You've got to come back to the cottage! There's a fire there!" Nicholas says, "I know. In the bedroom". Bruno asks, "How did you know?" Nicholas replies, "It's all over for us. Jeb has destroyed it all". Bruno asks, "What are you talking about?" Nicholas promises, "I'll tell you all about it on the way back to the cottage".

Barnabas and Elizabeth are in Carolyn's room. Carolyn has been put in bed. Barnabas starts to explain to Elizabeth, "The conspiracy we've been involved in..." but is surprised to find that Elizabeth has absolutely no memory of the Leviathans or anything that's happened. She does remember who Jeb is, but only that he's a nice young man Carolyn is fond of. Barnabas remarks, "What Jeb did caused everyone to be released from he spell!" Elizabeth asks for an explanation. Barnabas promises to tell her later, saying, "The only important thing now is that Carolyn is safe". Carolyn awakens and moans, "Jeb! Jeb!"

Jeb is outside Collinwood looking up at Carolyn's room thinking, "Carolyn, I must see you! You are the only one who can save me!"

Barnabas questions Carolyn about what she remembers. Carolyn replies that the last thing she remembered was waiting alone in the cottage for Jeb to return, then Nicholas Blair showing up. Elizabeth asks, "Nicholas Blair?? Is he involved in this?" Barnabas replies, "Yes. The reason you don't remember anything after that is because he hypnotized you". Carolyn asks, "Why?" Barnabas lies, "I don't know". After Barnabas leaves, Carolyn tells Elizabeth, "I've got to call Jeb!", picks up the telephone receiver and starts to dial.

Downstairs, Jeb comes into Collinwood. Hearing a noise on the stairs, he quickly hides in a dark corner of the foyer. Barnabas goes out through the front doors. Jeb comes out of hiding and goes up the stairs.

Carolyn hangs up and tell Elizabeth, "There's no answer". There's a knock at the door. Carolyn asks, "Who's there?" Jeb opens the door. Elizabeth angrily asks, "Who gave you permission to roam around the house?" Jeb explains, "I let myself in". Elizabeth tells him, ' "Well you can let yourself out! You act as if you owned the place!" Jeb mumbles, "They're back to normal, just as Nicholas said they'd be!" He begs, "Please, Mrs. Stoddard, I've got to talk to Carolyn, just for a few minutes". Elizabeth replies, "All right, but make it brief" and leaves. Jeb tells Carolyn, "I'll have to be brief. I don't have much time. If I stay here any longer, my life will end! We've got to go away, Carolyn, we've got to go far away!" Carolyn remarks, "I don't understand why we have to go away". Jeb begs, "I'm not asking you to understand, I'm asking you to go away with me! We'll go to Collinsport and get married, then go away!" Carolyn doesn't answer. Jeb prompts her, "What's the matter?" Carolyn replies, "Nothing". Jeb says, "Then answer!" Carolyn tells him, "There can only be one answer. If I can't get you to stay here with me, I'll go with you". Jeb says, "Oh, Carolyn!"

Bruno and Nicholas are back in the Carriage House. Bruno looks into Jeb's room and is astonished to find no trace of a fire. He gasps, "I don't understand it! The whole room was on fire! How did it put itself out?" Nicholas replies, "That was no ordinary fire. When Jeb destroyed that shrine, the Time of the Leviathans ended, and everything pertaining to it was destroyed!" Bruno asks, "What about Jeb? What's going to happen to him?" Nicholas replies, "He should have been destroyed when the shrine exploded!" Bruno points out, "But he isn't dead". Nicholas explains that he's existing by sheer willpower. Bruno grumbles, "He deserves to be dead for what he's done". Nicholas assures him, "Don't worry, Bruno. He'll soon be dead. I'll take care of that!"

Carolyn is alone in her room, reading over a letter she's just written,


 "Dear Mother,
 I think this may shock you, but Jeb has asked me to
 marry him tomorrow, and I have accepted. I hope you give
 your blessings, for I love him very much.

 Love, Carolyn"

She lies down on her bed with a thoughtful expression on her face and falls asleep. She starts to dream...

Carolyn is walking down the stairs of Collinwood dressed in a wedding gown. The drawing room doors open and Jeb, dressed in a tuxedo, comes out to meet her in the foyer. Carolyn happily remarks, "In a minute, I'll be Mrs. Jeb Hawkes!" Jeb takes her into the drawing room. Standing inside is Nicholas Blair holding a scepter. Carolyn gasps, "Nicholas Blair! What's HE doing here?" Jeb replies, "He's going to perform the ceremony". Carolyn protests, "No! He frightens me!" Jeb assures her, "There's nothing to be afraid of. No one's going to hurt you". Nicholas says, "Good Evening, Carolyn. You look beautiful! If you're both ready, we can begin". Carolyn protests, "We can't begin yet! My parents aren't here! We can't begin without them!" Jeb tells her, "Carolyn, you're mother doesn't approve. She won't be here". Carolyn asks, "What about my father?" Jeb reminds her, "Carolyn, your father is dead!" Carolyn gasps, "That can't be true!" Jeb tells her, "It is true. Don't you remember?" Carolyn admits, "Yes, I remember". Jeb says, "Let us begin. You and I will soon be together. Very soon!" Carolyn echoes, "Yes, very soon". Jeb and Carolyn take their places. Nicholas begins the ceremony, the same words he spoke at the Leviathan altar, "I call upon the Prince of Darkness. I call upon..." Carolyn interrupts, "What is he saying??? That's not any marriage ceremony I've ever heard!" Jeb shushes her, "Carolyn, you must be silent!" Nicholas continues, "I call upon the blackened and charred stars that reigned at my beginning!..." Again Carolyn interrupts, "I'm too afraid!" Jeb tells her, "Let him finish, Carolyn, let him finish". Suddenly, the lights go out. Carolyn asks, "Jeb, what is it?" Jeb replies, "I don't know!", sounding frightened. The drawing room doors open, revealing shadowy figure standing there. Carolyn gasps, "It's my father! I knew he'd come!" But the figures walks forward into the candlelight. It is not her father. Carolyn exclaims, "It's Cousin Barnabas! It's Cousin Barnabas!" Barnabas asks, "Have you told Carolyn?" Jeb replies, "Told Carolyn what?" Barnabas replies, "You can't marry her until you've told her everything". Once again Jeb says, "I don't know what you're talking about". Barnabas continues, "Tell you you know who killed her father". Jeb lies, "I do not!" Barnabas says, "Yes you do! YOU killed Paul Stoddard!". Carolyn moans, "NO! I can't believe that!" Barnabas orders, "Tell her the truth! Tell her the truth, Jeb!". Carolyn looks at Jeb, but Jeb just stands there. She moans, "Oh God! It IS true!" Jeb growls, "We're going to be together, Carolyn, no matter what happens!" and comes at her. Carolyn screams, "Don't touch me!!! Don't touch me! AHHHHHH!!!", but Jeb grabs her by the throat and starts to strangle her.

Carolyn awakens, very disturbed...

Jeb is at the Carriage House. There is a knock at the door. He answers it. It's Carolyn. She tells Jeb, "I've got to talk to you. I've changed my mind". Jeb exclaims, "YOU WHAT?" Carolyn replies, "I can't go away with you". Jeb asks, "What do you mean?" Carolyn replies, "Something happened". Jeb asks, "What?" Carolyn says, "It's hard to explain, Jeb", but Jeb insists, "You've got to try! You've got to say something, you just can't come here and tell me you're not going! You can't do that! I won't let you!" He comes towards her and holding his hands in front of him. Carolyn screams, "Don't touch me! Don't touch me! AHHHHH!"

This night at Collinwood, Carolyn Stoddard has stayed firm in her decision to marry Jeb Hawkes. But then she has a terrifying dream. A dream in which she heard Jeb Hawkes confess to the murder of her father, then saw him turn on her and destroy her, too. So deeply as the dream disturbed her, Carolyn knows she must reconsider the decision, or face a lifetime of fear.

Carolyn screams, "AHHHHH!" Jeb grabs her...and kisses her passionately. He tells her, "Don't you know it's too late?" Carolyn asks, "What's too late?" Jeb replies, "You love me, no matter what Barnabas or the others say. Carolyn tells him, "I didn't come here because of other people. I came here because of my father". Jeb asks, "What do you mean?" Carolyn tells him, "I had a dream about you again last night". Jeb says, "I don't want to hear it!", but Carolyn tells him, "You've got to!" She tells him the dream, finishing, "And you grabbed me and tried to destroy me, just as you did now!" Jeb points out, "But in real life I grabbed you to hold and comfort you, didn't I, honey? It was just a dream! Everyone has nightmares, but you don't run your life by them!". Carolyn says, "But it was so vivid! So real!" Jeb replies, "Darling, if you love me, just forget all the dreams like that". Carolyn says, "I love you". They kiss. Carolyn continues, "But I need more time..." Jeb asks, "Why? So those people can work on you longer?", but Carolyn says, "Just to think". Jeb tells her, "OK, I'll give you two hours". Carolyn warns him, "I'm not promising you anything", but Jeb confidently predicts, "You'll go!" They kiss. He repeats, "You'll go". Carolyn leaves to go to Collinwood to think things over.

Jeb, now alone, thinks to himself, "We love each other. That's all that matters. Nothing else that's happens matters, not anymore. Suddenly, the front doors open. Jeb calls out, "Carolyn?", thinking she's come back. Receiving no answer, he goes and looks out the door. Seeing no one, he assumes that it was the wind and closes the door. The lights suddenly go out. Jeb calls out, "All right. Who is it? I know! It's YOU, Paul Stoddard, isn't it? And you're angry because she wouldn't listen to you! There's nothing you can do! It's too late! She loves me! She loves me!" A voice answers, "As much as Victoria Winters loved me?" A glowing vision dressed in 18th century clothing with a noose around its neck appears. It is definitely not Paul Stoddard. Jeb gasps, "You! It can't be you! It can't be!" The ghost replies, "I'm flattered you remember me, Jebez Hawkes. It's been a long, long time, but you have reason to remember Peter Bradford, don't you?" Jeb exclaims, "Now I understand! It was you who appeared when I tried to kill Maggie!" The ghost says, "Yes, and when you tried to kill Willie Loomis, and Julia Hoffman. I was the one who burned the book, and the one who put the noose around Bruno's neck. I could easily put one around yours, but that wouldn't work with you, would it? There's only one way to kill you, I did it in 1796, and I was hanged for it!" Jeb points out, "You were a live man then!

You're only an illusion. It wasn't my fault Victoria Winters died!" Peter's ghost replies, "It was! You sent her off that cliff, and I pushed you over, and I'm going to do the same thing tonight!" Jeb says, "You can't. You have no flesh, no blood..." Peter replies, "It may not be my hand, but someone will do it, and you will die the only way you can, by drowning!" Jeb says, "You'll never get me near Widow's Hill!", but the ghost confidently says, "I did it in 1796, and I'll do it again! I was in love with Vicki. You ended to it. I'm going to end it with you and Carolyn!" Jeb angrily shouts, "YOU LEAVE CAROLYN ALONE!" Peter's ghost retorts, "Why? Did you leave Vicki alone? I've been waiting for this, I've been waiting a long, long time, and nothing's going to keep me from killing you!" Jeb growls, "I won't let you harm Carolyn! If you do anything to her, I swear, I'll...", but Peter's ghost vanishes before he can finish the sentence. The lights come back on. Jeb quickly telephones Carolyn at Collinwood and tells her, "Carolyn! Listen! This is very important! Don't go anywhere until I come for you. Carolyn, you can't go out! Don't go out whatever what happens, even if something strange and terrible happens!" Carolyn asks, "What do you mean?" Jeb replies, "I can't tell you right now. I'll be there in two hours. Let's synchronize our watches!" The foyer clocks strikes the half hour. Carolyn says, "It's exactly 1:30". Jeb tells her, "I'll be there at 3:30 exactly!" He looks at a carriage clock on the mantel. It reads 1:30.

Megan has just gotten out of her coffin. With her is a forlorn looking Sky Rumson. Sky asks, "Where are you going?" Megan replies, "What difference does it make to you?" Sky tells her, "I don't want to be alone here". Megan replies, "I have something to do. Don't you have something to do?" Sky replies that he hasn't. Megan says, "I can't believe that, a man as important as you! I'll call you when I need you". Sky asks, "When?" Megan reiterates, "When I need you. Between times, do as you please as long as you keep my secret". Sky begs, "Megan, please!", but Megan says firmly, "NO! There's someone I must talk to!" and leaves.

Philip is in his jail cell sleeping. Megan appears in his cell. Philip awakens and is surprised to see her, "Megan! I must be dreaming!" Megan replies, "No, you're not dreaming. I'm here". Philip asks, "How did you get in here at this hour?" Megan explains, "I made an 'arrangement' with the guard". Philip says, "I need you desperately!" Megan tells him, "I know". She explains why she hasn't visited him by saying, "I've been ill lately, but I'm better now. Let's not talk about me.Let's talk about you". Philip, not not remembering anything that's happened with the Leviathan spell broken, says, "I don't understand! They say I killed three men! They even showed me a signed confession!" Megan tells him, "I'm here to get you out". Phillip thankfully says, "Megan, if only you could get them to believe me!" Megan bares her fangs. Phillip screams, "NO! Megan, NO! Please, no!", but Megan bites him.

Jeb Hawkes looks at the clock in the Carriage House. It reads 2:30. Jeb thinks, "One hour until I get Carolyn", but he hears Peter's disembodied voice reply, "Until you die at Widow's Hill as you did before!" Jeb growls, "You can't reach me, Peter! There's nothing you can do!"

Philip awakens from the bite without any memory of what's happened. He is surprised to see a man with a noose around his neck in his cell with him. Philip remarks, "You're not real!". The ghost of Peter Bradford replies, "I was. My name was Peter Bradford". Phillip asks, "What do you want from me?" Peter replies, "You live and I am dead. Centuries separate us, but we both have one thing in common. Both of us were in love with a woman destroyed by the same man". Phillip growls, "Barnabas destroyed Megan! He deserves to die! I'll get him!" The ghost tries to tell him he doesn't mean Barnabas, but Philip won't listen. Finally, the ghost tells him, "If you do as I say, I'll unlock that door and you can have your revenge on whoever you want!"

Jeb telephones Carolyn again. He tells her, "Carolyn! I'm coming right over!". Carolyn looks at the clock and remarks, "But it isn't even three o'clock yet. What's the matter?" Jeb replies, "Nothing, but something might be if we stay. I know I haven't given you enough time..." Carolyn interrupts, "I've made up my mind. I'm ready".

After Jeb hangs up, he starts to feel dizzy. He mutters, "What's happening? I feel so strange! I've got to sit down!" He sits down at a chair and immediately falls asleep. The ghost of Peter Bradford appears and says, "You have very little time left, Jeb, very little time, even less time than you imagine - but there is enough, just enough!" He goes to the mantel clock and sets it back to 2:00.

The clock in the foyer now reads 3:30. Carolyn wonders, "It shouldn't take him this long to get here. It couldn't!" She telephones the Carriage House, but Jeb, fast asleep, doesn't answer. She recalls Jeb's words, "I'm coming right over!...Something might be he matter if we don't leave...I'm coming right over!" She puts on her coat and prepares to go look for Jeb, but then recalls his other words, "Don't go out! Wait till I come for you! Don't leave the house, no matter what happens!" Not knowing what to do, she sits down in a chair beneath the portrait of Barnabas.

Jeb finally awakens and exclaims, "What happened? Carolyn! I've got to call Carolyn!" He looks at the clock and sees that it's only 2:00 and thinks, "No need to hurry. I do have time. It's only 2:00. I've only been out for a few minutes. I can still get there in plenty of time". He puts on his coat and opens the door - only to find Peter Bradford's ghost standing there. The ghost tells him, "There's no need to go!" Jeb asks, "What are you talking about?" The ghost replies, "Carolyn's not at Collinwood". Jeb asks, "Where is she?" The ghost replies, "Where was Vicki Winters when she died?" Jeb exclaims, "I'm not falling for that! I'm not going to Widow's Hill! I'm going to Collinwood! Get out of my way!", and pushes past the ghost and leaves.

At Collinwood, Carolyn looks at the clock and sees that it's 4:00. She calls the Carriage House again. Again she receives no answer. She thinks of going to find him again, but again recalls his words, "Don't leave the house! You must not! You must not!" Carolyn cries, "I must, Jeb! I care for you!", but then she recalls him saying, "Something strange and frightening, strange and frightening, strange and frightening..." but decides to go anyway. She thinks, "I'll take the back path. That way, if someone is waiting for me, I'll get by them. It'll be all right! It's got to be!" She goes into the door under the stairs to go out the back. Right after she does, Jeb comes bursting in through the front door. He calls out, "Carolyn! Where are you?", but receiving no answer, goes upstairs to look for her.

Carolyn arrives at the Carriage House and finds it deserted. Jeb comes running back down into the foyer. He thinks, "Where is she?" Then he recalls Peter's words, "Where was Vicki Winters when she died?" and rushes out the front door.

Jeb arrives at Widow's Hill and calls out, "Carolyn! Carolyn, answer me!" Receiving no answer, he exclaims, "She's not here!" A voice answers, "But I am! I've been waiting for you". Jeb turns and sees Philip Todd standing there. Jeb asks, "How did you know I'd be here?" Philip replies, "He told me you'd be here when he let me out of jail". Jeb says, "I've got to go find Carolyn!", but Philip blocks his way, telling him, "You're not going anywhere tonight! You can't run, Jeb! Tonight, you're staying here!" He rushes Jeb and tries to push him off of the cliff, but is unable to. They wrestle. Finally, Philip wrestles Jeb to the ground, Jeb's head hanging over the cliff, and announces, "Tonight, you're going to drown!!!"

This night at Collinwood, Carolyn Stoddard has waited for the man she loves. But instead of a new life with Carolyn as his bride, Jeb Hawkes seemed destined to find death this night, for he has been lured to Widow's Hill by a ghostly enemy, who knows that drowning is the only way to destroy him.

Jeb struggles and manages to throw Phillip off. Jeb gets up. Philip asks fearfully, "What are you going to do to me?" Jeb replies, "I'm going to let you go". Phillip asks, "Why? You've always wanted to kill me". Jeb replies, "There's already been enough killing. Now get out of here!". Phillip turns and leaves, but as Jeb starts to turn to look over the cliff, Phillip sneaks back. Jeb hears a noise and turns just in time to see Phillip making a mad rush at him and steps aside. Phillip, unable to stop his momentum, goes careening over Widow's Hill and falls. Jeb shouts, "Phillip! Phillip!" and moans, "Why did it have to happen this way?" The Ghost of Peter Bradford appears and says, "It doesn't matter. You're not going to escape!" Jeb exclaims, "What do you mean it doesn't matter?! A man just died!" Bradford replies, "The only thing that matters is that I kill you, Jeb Hawkes!" Jeb says, "It won't happen!" and leaves. Peter says to himself, "I can lure you to water without you knowing it and destroy you!" A voice replies, "No, Peter Bradford, I will not let you destroy him! He belongs to me!" The Ghost turns and sees Angelique standing there. He asks, "Who are you?" Angelique replies, "I am no ordinary woman. I will destroy Jeb Hawkes! I had a wonderful marriage, home and life, and he ruined it. For this, he will pay dearly!" Peter points out, "The only way to destroy him is to drown him", but Angelique replies, "That's the only way YOU can destroy him. I have other ways". Peter protests, "But he's no ordinary man. If you fail, he'll marry Carolyn". Angelique assures him, "But I am no ordinary woman. I will not fail! I will search for Jeb Hawkes as soon as I get rid of YOU!" Peter, not seeming to trust Angelique's powers, says, "He'll get away!", but Angelique assures him, "I'll make sure he doesn't get away. Jeb Hawkes has a very short future". She tells him, "Go back to where you belong! You will be avenged!" then says an incantation that sends the Ghost away.

At Collinwood, Elizabeth is reading the letter from Carolyn. Carolyn, unable to find Jeb, has returned to Collinwood and walks into the room. Elizabeth exclaims, "You can't do it!" Carolyn replies, "You can't change my mind, Mother, so don't try". She tells her, "I went to the Carriage House and he wasn't there. I can't imagine what happened". Elizabeth suggests hopefully, "Maybe HE changed HIS mind". Carolyn dismisses this, saying, "He was afraid something terrible was going to happen". Elizabeth asks, "What?" Carolyn replies, "He wouldn't say". The telephone rings. Carolyn, thinking it might be Jeb, rushes to answer it, but it isn't Jeb. Carolyn speaks to the caller, "Mrs. Todd? No, she isn't here. What's wrong?...Oh no!....Of course I'll phone you if he comes here" and hangs up. Elizabeth asks, "What is it?" Carolyn replies, "Phillip Todd escaped from jail tonight. No one knows where he is or even where to begin to look for him". A voice says, "Tell them to look in the waters below Widow's Hill". They turn and see it's Jeb.

Jeb is on the phone, telling someone how Phillip tried to kill him but ended up falling off Widow's Hill himself. He ends the conversation saying, "Yes, I'll come and make an official statement, but it'll have to be today. After today, I don't know where I'll be". After he hangs up, he tells Carolyn and Elizabeth, "I answered all their questions, and they answered mine. Earlier this evening Phillip Todd had a nervous breakdown and escaped. They think he has these periods of madness only when he feels the need to kill". Carolyn moans, "But this time, he tried to kill YOU". Jeb tells her, "But I'm all right". He notes, "But something's still bothering you. What?" Carolyn replies, "I just heard you say on the phone that you were going away!" Jeb replies, "I am! We're going to get married and go away together, remember?" Carolyn says, "I was afraid you had changed your mind!". Jeb assures him that he hasn't. Elizabeth says, "I can't say I approve of the marriage, but I can see that Carolyn loves you". She begs them to stay at Collinwood, but Jeb refuses. She asks them to at least have the wedding at Collinwood. Jeb asks to speak to Carolyn alone. Elizabeth leaves. Jeb tells Carolyn, "I don't want a big wedding. I know she'll want to invite half the State of Maine". Carolyn assures him she won't, that it'll be just the family, but Jeb doesn't even want that, "No family. Just us."

Some time later, Elizabeth is having coffee or tea with Angelique in the drawing room. Elizabeth remarks, "I'm so happy I ran into you in town". She tells her she's sorry her marriage to Sky didn't work out. Jeb comes into the room. Elizabeth asks, "Have you taken care of that matter at the Police Station?" Jeb replies that he has. Elizabeth says, "Good. I've got the marriage license". Elizabeth introduces Jeb and Angelique to one another, saying, "The Rumson's live on Little Windward Island". Angelique remarks, "Yes, he's been there". Jeb denies this. Angelique continues, "But you must have! You and Sky were such good friends!" Jeb lies, "Not really. We just met a few times. I took a few pictures for him for his magazine". He excuses himself, saying he's got to get ready. Angelique remarks, "So I hear you're getting married to Carolyn". Jeb replies, "Yes". She asks, "When?" Jeb replies, "Today". Angelique says, "Well, I'll quote and old Irish saying, 'May you have all the luck you need!'".

Jeb returns to the Carriage House to get ready. He is surprised to find Angelique there waiting for him. He asks, "What are you doing here?" Angelique replies, "Waiting for you". While she's talking, she's also busy cutting some black paper. She continues, "Tell me, Jeb, what do you know about me?" Jeb replies, "Not much. Only that you're beautiful and you're married to Sky Rumson". Angelique tells him, "I, on the other hand, know much about you. I know you should have been destroyed when the cairn was destroyed. I know you have a great will to live, but that will not be enough against me! I know too much about you! I know how Peter Bradford tried to kill you by drowning!" Jeb tells her, "No one's going to get me near water!" Angelique replies, "I have no need of water. I have the means to destroy you right here!"

At Collinwood, Elizabeth is helping Carolyn get ready for the wedding. She gives her an antique pin, saying, "It belonged to your Great-great-great-great Grandmother". Carolyn quips, "That certainly takes care of the 'old'", referring to the "Something old, something new..." tradition. Elizabeth gives her her handkerchief as the "something borrowed". She sighs, "I always wanted you to have a big wedding". Carolyn replies that so did she, but she's happy with anything as long as it's with Jeb.

At the Carriage House, Jeb is arguing with Angelique, "I didn't destroy your marriage to Sky, he did it himself with his selfish greed!" He excuses himself saying , "I don't have time to argue. I have to go to Carolyn". Angelique suddenly places the thing she's been cutting out of the black paper, a black cutout of a cartoonish ghost figure with its arms stretches out (it looks like one of Casper's friends) onto Jeb's chest and says, "Go! Go to Carolyn, and let this follow you until it consumes you!" Jeb asks, "What is THAT?" Angelique tells him, "Come the fire, come to the fire and I'll show you what's going to happen". Jeb goes to the fire. Angelique continues, "Now look into the fire and tell me what you see!" Jeb looks into the fire. He sees a vision of himself lying on a bed asleep....

Jeb, in the vision, awakens. Suddenly, a shadow that looks just like the cutout, but much bigger, appears on the wall. It wiggles, then floats into the air and towards Jeb. Jeb screams "AHHHHH!!!!" as it engulfs him, then becomes quiet as he dies.

Angelique asks, "What do you see, Jeb? What do you see?" Jeb gasps, "That shape! The same as this", pointing to the cutout, "But it was horrible and deadly! All right! You've shown me you have powers! You can make me scream and die in your visions, but you can't make it happen! Only water can destroy me!" Angelique replies," No, Jeb! I will prove to you that death is around every corner, not just at Widow's Hill!

Elizabeth gives Carolyn a piece of jewelry with a sapphire stone, fulfilling "something blue part".

Jeb has returned to Collinwood and is in the foyer alone. He admires himself in the mirror and says, "You look GOOD! You look FINE! And everything will be fine!" Suddenly, he sees in the mirror, on the opposite wall, a shadow that looks just like the one in the dream, only this one is smaller, about the size of a human hand. At first he is frightened, but then he assures himself, "It's only a shadow! Shadows can't hurt you!" He goes over to the opposite wall, turns on a lamp on the table there, and the shadow disappears. Jeb is relieved, "It's just an ordinary shadow!". Carolyn and Elizabeth come down. Carolyn sees Jeb and asks, "What are you doing?" Jeb replies, "The light bulb had gone out. I was just seeing if it had been replaced yet". Seeing Jeb doing something so "domestic", Carolyn quips, "I can see you're going to be a great husband", and leaves to join Elizabeth in welcoming the minister. Jeb looks on the wall and is shocked to see that despite the light, the shadow has returned....

Night over Collinwood. A night which should be filled with joy, for there is to be a wedding in the great house. Jeb, having destroyed the Leviathans, and with them his true self, is to marry Carolyn at last. But Jeb knows he has many enemies, and Angelique, determined to avenge her broken marriage has foretold his own death. A death that will come from a seemingly innocent shadow, which will grow and grow until it overwhelms him.

Jeb and Carolyn are in the drawing room. They kiss. Carolyn notes, "Jeb, you're so nervous!" Jeb replies, "It's just that I've never been married before. I haven't changed my mind, have you, Carolyn?" Carolyn replies, "I always imagined that I would have a big wedding with lots of guests and flower girls, but now the only thing I want is to marry you". Elizabeth and the reverend come into the room. Elizabeth asks, "Reverend Brand wants to know if you two are ready or not". They reply that they are. Elizabeth sadly notes, "This is all so impromptu!" Carolyn reminds her, "We wanted it this way". Elizabeth says, "I know". The Reverend tells them to take their places. Jeb suddenly remembers that he's forgotten something, goes out into the foyer, and comes back with some flowers for Carolyn. Reverend Brand starts the standard wedding vows, "Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today in the sight of God and of the company gathered here to join this man and this woman..." The reverend tells Jeb to put the ring on Carolyn. Jeb puts a wedding on Carolyn. The Reverend announces, "I now pronounce you man and wife!" Carolyn and Jeb kiss. Elizabeth cries. Carolyn and Elizabeth hug one another. The Reverend congratulates Jeb. The Reverend is about to leave, but Elizabeth asks him to stay for a glass of celebratory champagne. Elizabeth asks Jeb, "Where are you going?" Jeb replies, "Far, far away!" Carolyn quips, "He's even keeping a secret from me! I married a man of mystery!" Jeb tells Elizabeth, "Now that I'm your son-in-law, I'd better tell you I'm not someone who believes in timetables and plans. We're going to get into the car, decide where we're going to go, go there, then when we start getting uptight about being there, come home". He makes a toast, "May we have much time together!" He notices Julia standing in the foyer and calls, "Dr. Hoffman! Come in!" Julia is told that Jeb and Carolyn have just been married. Julia congratulates them, hugs Carolyn, and says, "Jeb, take good care of her!" Jeb promises that he will. Carolyn offers another toast, "My husband, may we always feel the way we feel tonight!"

Barnabas arises from his coffin in the cellar of the Old House, comes up into the living room and lights some candles. He notices a man standing there - it's Sky Rumson. Barnabas asks, "What are you doing here?" Rumson replies, "Do you know how much I hate you? For many reasons..." Barnabas interrupts, "Including Angelique". Rumson says, "Yes, Angelique. Where is she?" Barnabas replies, "I don't know. We are not friends". Rumson says, "You are closer than friends. You are enemies. You two never miss a chance to torture one another. You must know where she is. You've got to get me her help! She must help! You are responsible for what's happened to me!" Barnabas says, "Nothing's happening to you since Jeb's destroyed that box." Rumson replies, "That's not what I'm talking about. I was introduced to that by a Mr. Strack, not you. I'm talking about THIS". He shows Barnabas the bite marks on his throat. Barnabas gasps, "Megan!" Rumson says, "Yes! Megan!"

At Collinwood, Reverend Brand and Julia have left. Jeb and Carolyn are in the drawing room with Elizabeth, who's gathering up the champagne glasses and putting them on a tray. Carolyn tells Jeb, "I've got to and change". Elizabeth goes with her. Jeb is now alone in the drawing room. He thinks to himself, "Married! Yes, married! No one stopped us! When the reverend said, 'If anyone should know any reason why these two should not be married, let him speak now or forever hold his peace', no one came and said anything. Even Angelique didn't do anything. She was just trying to scare me! Nothing has happened!" Suddenly, he notices that the shadow has appeared on the wall, only this time much bigger, the size of a small child. He screams, "No! No! No! That shadow! Angelique said it would kill me! Carolyn, we've got to get out of here!!!"

At the Old House, Rumson is telling Barnabas, "Yes, I am here as the result of her as she is the result of you. What happened to her will not happen to me! I'm tired of hearing her voice in my head calling me! Only Angelique can help! Where is she?" Barnabas replies, "I don't know. Where is Megan's coffin?" Sky replies, "Tonight she was in a crypt, but she's moved it somewhere else". Barnabas says, "I need to know where it is if I am to help". Sky points out, "How can you help? In the daytime when she's in her coffin, you'll be in yours". Barnabas replies, "I have a friend who can help. Where did Megan move her coffin?" Sky replies, "To the East Wing of Collinwood. I don't know which room". Julia comes in. Barnabas tells Sky, "If you find Megan, send a message to Julia. She'll tell you what to do". Sky remarks on how ironic they're on the same side now and leaves. Julia tells Barnabas, "I don't know what that was all about, Barnabas, but I have something to tell you. Jeb and Carolyn are married!" Barnabas is shocked.

At Collinwood, the clock in the foyer reads 7:55. Jeb and Carolyn are in the foyer, packed and about to leave. Carolyn hugs Elizabeth goodbye and promises, "Mother, as soon as we stop somewhere, I promise to call you". Jeb thinks hopefully, "The shadow! It won't follow us! It can't! We'll escape it! We've got to! It's not going to ruin things, it's not!" Jeb says his goodbyes to Elizabeth then he and Carolyn leave. Elizabeth picks a box up from the foyer table and notes, "The rice! We forgot to throw the rice!" The foyer clock now reads 10:00. Elizabeth is sitting in the drawing room, looking thoughtful. Barnabas and Julia come in through the front doors. Seeing them, Elizabeth comes out into the foyer and asks, "Barnabas, has Julia told you?" Barnabas replies, "Yes". Elizabeth continues, "I miss her so. I must so something to keep my mind occupied". She tells them that Jeb and Carolyn have decided to live in the Carriage House rather than the main house when they return, so she'll go look at the Carriage House to see about having it redecorated. Julia volunteers to go with her. As Elizabeth goes to get her coat, Barnabas whispers to Julia, "You're very clever, Julia! This gives me a chance to search the East Wing!" Julia replies, "That's not the only reason. I felt so sorry for her. Jeb can't turn into his true form anymore, can he?" Barnabas assures her that he cannot.

Jeb and Carolyn arrive at a hotel room somewhere. Carolyn is about to step inside when Jeb says, "Wait!" He picks her up and carries her over the threshold. Once inside, he puts her down and looks around for the shadow. Carolyn asks, "What are you looking for, Jeb?" Jeb lies, "Nothing. Here we are! Here we are in a strange hotel room. No one knows we're here, no one in the whole world. No one's going to come knocking on the door bothering us!" Carolyn chimes in, "We have the whole world and we have each other! No one's alive but the two of us! We love each other and nothing's going to change that! Nothing!" They kiss.

At Collinwood, Barnabas is telling Julia, "You're right, Julia. We must offer to give Megan the injections...." Elizabeth comes back, apologizing, "Sorry I took so long. I had to talk to Mrs. Johnson. She was very upset she wasn't invited to the ceremony. I wanted to, but Jeb was so intent on keeping it a secret". She and Julia leave. Barnabas thinks to himself, "The East Wing! I must find her coffin!"

Jeb and Carolyn are in bed asleep. Jeb awakens and gets out of bed, dressed only in pajama bottoms. He looks around. Suddenly, the shadow appears. Jeb shouts, "Oh no! Oh no! Oh no!", and goes and wakes Carolyn up. Carolyn asks, "What's wrong?" Jeb replies, "We've got to get going! I can't explain! We've got to drive on!"

Barnabas is searching through the East Wing, opening door after door and searching through unused room after unused room. He thinks to himself, "So many places to hide! No one's been down these halls in years!" He opens another door and finds to his astonishment that this room is different from all the others, it's brightly lit, cheerfully and colorfully furnished. He tries to go in, but finds his way blocked by some invisible force. He exclaims, "Why? Why?" He looks and exclaims, "Quentin, husband?!" On a table is a photograph of Quentin with Tad, with the handwritten inscription, "Your loving husband Quentin". Barnabas is even more astonished to see Elizabeth enter the room through another door. He calls out, "Elizabeth!", but she acts as if she doesn't hear him. Barnabas calls out, "Can't you hear me?", but she doesn't respond. She goes to an armoire, opens the door, and starts to take out the dresses hanging inside. She is startled by a voice asking, "What are you doing?" She turns and sees that Julia has come into the room. This surprises Barnabas as well. He exclaims, "Julia!", but she too acts as if she cannot hear him. Elizabeth replies to Julia, "Cleaning out her closet". Julia orders, "You will not touch her clothes!" Elizabeth counters, "He will want this room opened. It will be their room", but Julia sneers, "It will not! It belongs to HER, it will always belong to HER!". Elizabeth protests, "But she's dead!" Julia replies, "She will be back! No one else will ever live here! She'll be back!" Elizabeth says, "Quiet! Do you want the children to hear?" and quickly goes and closes the door Barnabas is at. Barnabas gasps, "Julia! Elizabeth! What is happening? They can't be in there! But it WASN'T my imagination!" The doors fly open by themselves. Barnabas looks inside and is surprised to find that the room is now no longer brightly lit and cheerfully furnished, but dark and empty of furniture. He goes in - he is able to this time - and exclaims, "Empty! It's wasn't a dream! It was here! But what was it?"

Julia and Elizabeth return just as Barnabas is coming down the stairs to the foyer. Surprised to see them down here after just seeing them upstairs, gasps, "Elizabeth! Julia!" He asks, "You've been at the Carriage House?" Elizabeth replies, "Yes" Barnabas asks, "You've been no where else?" Elizabeth replies, "No". She remarks on how the Carriage House will need more work than she thought, then invites Julia to come into the study to look at some family chests (?). After Elizabeth goes to the study, Julia asks Barnabas, "Tell me, did you find her hiding place?" Barnabas replies, "No, but I found something else! I know it sounds ridiculous, but I just saw you and Elizabeth!" Julia asks, "Where?" Barnbas replies, "In a room in the East Wing!"

A strange night of mystery on the great estate of Collinwood. For Barnabas Collins searching the long deserted East Wing, has made an astonishing and puzzling discovery: a room, brilliantly furnished, but a room which he cannot enter, stopped by some invisible force, and a room in which he saw Julia and Elizabeth, obviously living different lives. They could not hear him when he called to them. Then the door closed, and he managed to open it again, the room was empty, the furnishings gone.

Julia points out, "I've never been in the East Wing". Barnabas replies, "I know that, but you were there! You looked much like you do now, but you were dressed differently". Julia insists, "I was at the Carriage House". Barnabas continues, "But you were there too! It sounds insane, but I'm not mad!" Julia asks, "How can that be?" Barnabas says, "I don't know, but you must believe me! I was searching through the East Wing..." He tells her how he searched empty room after empty room, how he came upon one that was brightly lit, how he couldn't go in, how there was a portrait of Quentin with the inscription, "Your loving husband, Quentin". Julia asks, "Was it modern?" Barnabas replies, "Yes. Then Elizabeth came into the room. She went to the closet and started taking out some clothes, then you came in and stopped her". He describes the argument between the two women. Julia gasps, "Barnabas, that's frightening!" They are interrupted by Elizabeth coming in with some material for the couch. She asks what Julia to look at them and tell her what she thinks of them, then sits down at the desk saying she has to write some announcements telling friends and relatives of Carolyn's marriage. Barnabas says, "I'll say good night now. Oh, Julia, I didn't find that book I was looking for". Julia replies, "Oh, sorry, it's in my room". They pretend to leave to get it and go up the stairs.

Roger comes in through the front door looking furious. He marches into the drawing room and shouts, "Elizabeth! I can't believe it! If I hadn't run into Reverend Brand in town, I wouldn't even know about it!" Elizabeth replies, "I couldn't stop them". Roger asks, "Then why didn't you phone me? I would have flown back and done something! When I left, everything seemed back to normal, now this! Carolyn, married to this Jeb fellow!" Elizabeth says, "He isn't the sort of man I would have picked for Carolyn, but we have to accept it. After all, I married someone the family didn't approve of". Roger snidely remarks, "And with disastrous results!" Elizabeth angrily replies, "That was uncalled for, Roger!" Roger continues, "Something must be done!" Elizabeth asks, "What?" Roger explains, "Marriages can be annulled!", but Elizabeth says, "Leave them alone! Carolyn's in love with Jeb." Roger growls, "I don't know how you can leave it at that. I certainly won't!" and storms out of the room.

Barnabas and Julia arrive outside the strange room in the East Wing. The doors are closed. Barnabas says, "Here it is" and opens the door. The room is empty. They go inside. Barnabas points to a spot and says, "The portrait of Quentin was on this table here..." He is interrupted by a banging noise. They investigate and find that the window is open and is banging on the frame, blown by the wind. Julia muses, "How many lives have been led here, how many moments of ecstasy, anger..." Barnabas points out, "In the past, Julia, but what puzzles me most is that you and Elizabeth were wearing modern clothes. What happened here didn't happen in the past, it happened now". Julia muses, "I was at Elliot Stokes' house one night last spring. We were having brandies after dinner. Elliot had been reading about a theory that sounded insane to me, the theory of parallel time." Barnabas asks, "Parallel time?" Julia continues, "Yes. We live in this time in 1970. Suppose time is like a road, and parallel to it is another road, another band of time, and on this band we live the lives we know, but on the other band we live different lives because we made different choices. For example, in college I might have made the decision to marry and have children instead of becoming a doctor". They are interrupted by a bumping noise coming from outside. They go outside. Barnabas opens a closet. They shine a flashlight inside and find Megan hiding there. Megan, her eyes sensitive to the light, begs, "Put it down! Please put it down!" They drag her into the parallel time room. Julia asks, "Megan, have you ever been in this room before?" Megan replies, "No." Barnabas asks, "Have you ever any voices coming from this room?" Megan starts to panic and says, "Someone else comes here? Tell me who it is!" Barnabas lies, "No, Megan, we just imagined we heard voices. You don't know how I feel when I look at you, knowing I was responsible for ending your life..." Megan replies that she hardly even remembers her old life, and anyway, she wasn't very happy with Phillip dead and all that happened. Julia says, "Megan, please, we can help". They tell her about Julia's anti-vampirism serum, but Megan refuses to be cured, saying, "No! I don't want to be any different from the way I am!" Barnabas and Julia are shocked. Megan continues, "You just don't know! I won't let you change me! There's nothing for me to go back to. Phillip's dead. Let me be!" Barnabas says, "I cannot! Every time I see you, I must blame myself. Your weakness is making you feel this way. You can find nothing but horror and death the way you are..." Suddenly, he and Julia notice that Megan is gone.

Roger is at the old house bothering Willie, "Where is Barnabas? Surely he told you!" Willie replies, "Mr. Collins, Barnabas doesn't confide in me". Roger tells him, "Tell him I must see him tonight! It's about Carolyn". Willie asks, "Has something happened to Carolyn?" Roger replies, "You're one of the few people in this town who doesn't know! Delight in your ignorance, Loomis!" and leaves. Willie mutters, "Boy, you sure don't improve with time, Mr. Collins, you sure don't!"

Roger is walking through the woods. He hears a noise and looks back, but sees no one and continues walking. Then he hears the sound again. He looks back and this time sees Megan. He calls out, "Oh, Mrs. Todd! Did I frighten you? What are you doing out this time of night?" Megan doesn't answer. Roger continues, "Reverend Brand told me the sad news about your husband. Oh, Mrs. Todd, If I've upset you, I'm sorry". She hugs him, as if for comforting, but then bares her fangs...

The clock in the foyer reads 11:40. Julia and Barnabas are in the drawing room. Julia is saying to Barnabas, "I know how upsetting this evening has been for you, but you must not feel personally about Megan Todd". Barnabas asks, "How else am I to feel?" They are interrupted by Roger coming into the room. He has a funny expression on his face, seeming to squint his eyes. Speaking in a slurred, disoriented manner, he says, "Barnabas, I was looking for you, and you too, Julia. But I can't quite remember why..." Julia asks, "Roger, are you all right?" Roger replies, "Yes, why shouldn't I be? But the light is so bright!" then holds his temples as if they hurt. He continues, "Elizabeth, I must find Elizabeth. I just ran into Megan Todd. Terrible about he husband". Barnabas and Julia look at each other knowingly. Julia says, "Roger, let me give you something for your headache", but Roger says, "No, I can take care of myself. Goodnight" and leaves. Julia exclaims, "Barnabas! We've got to help him!" Barnabas sadly replies, "How can we, Julia? He's under her spell. And one by one, we'll see everyone around here fall under her spell". Julia says, "She needs those injections!", but Barnabas says, "You know what we must do, Julia. We must find her coffin in the daylight, and you must stop her in the only way she can be stopped, with a stake and a hammer".

Julia and Barnabas have returned to the Old House. A very agitated Willie is saying, "ME?? Why are you picking on me, Barnabas?" Barnabas replies, "I'm not picking on you", but Willie continues, "Yes you are! You want me to go find that woman in the East Wing and put a stake through her heart!" Barnbas remarks, "It's not a pleasant task for anyone, but it must be done". Julia assures Willie, "I'll be going with you". Willie asks, "Why can't she do it?" Barnabas replies, "Julia doesn't have the strength". Willie complains, "You're asking me to risk my life and my future wife's happiness." Barnabas assures him, "You'll be in no danger, Willie. It'll be in the daytime. Tomorrow, Sky Rumson will try to find where the coffin is.." Willie interrupts, "Why can't he do it?" Barnabas replies, "I can't trust him. He's under her spell. Look, Willie, it would be more dangerous for you if we did nothing and left her to roam the woods". Willie continues to complain, "I'm not going to sleep much tonight, and tomorrow Roxanne's going to ask me why I'm so nervous. I wish I could tell her everything. She's going to start to think I'm weird or something..." Julia tells him, "I'll call you when everything's ready". Willie replies, "All right" and leaves. Barnabas tells Julia, "Sky Rumson will be getting in touch with you tomorrow morning. It'll all be over by dusk". Julia, with sadness in her voice, echoes, "Yes it will". Julia leaves. Barnabas thinks to himself, "That room! I saw Julia and Elizabeth in there! What were they talking about? Who's dead? How is this possible?"

Julia is talking with Elizabeth in the drawing room. Elizabeth is saying, "When was I last in the East Wing? It must be at least six months ago". Julia asks, "Does Mrs. Johnson or anyone else ever go there?" Elizabeth replies, "Well, it's cleaned every spring, and repairs are made occasionally, why do you ask?" Julia lies, "I thought I saw a light in one of the windows". Elizabeth says, "Then we must check it out", but Julia assures her, "I'm sure it was just a reflection of the lightning. I was afraid the children might have seen it and thought the East Wing was haunted". Elizabeth replies, "There are no legends about that part of the house". Julia continues, "Tell me, what do you know about the East Wing?" Elizabeth replies, "You should ask Roger. He knows much more about it than I do. Why are you so interested in the East Wing all of a sudden?" Julia replies, "It's just that this is a fascinating old house and I've just realized how very little I know about it". While they are talking, they do not see Barnabas come in and sneak up the stairs.

Barnabas goes to the parallel time room again. He opens the door and finds it brightly lit and furnished again. He sees Elizabeth in there and calls, "Elizabeth!", but again she doesn't respond. She picks up a stool and goes up to the fireplace, steps up on the stool and is about to take down a portrait covered with a light blue cloth hanging above the fireplace when Julia comes into the room and demands, "What are you doing?" Elizabeth replies, "Taking this down. It should not be hanging here now". Julia growls, "She did not even want you in her room! I will not let you take it down!" Elizabeth replies, "He is coming. He will not want it in here!" Julia says, "Then he will tell us when he comes. Until then, you will let it hang!" She starts to walk towards the fireplace, saying, "Let everyone in the house see it! It has remained covered long enough!" She pulls the cloth off. It is a portrait of Angelique. Barnabas is shocked. Elizabeth gasps, "No one must see it!", but Julia counters, "Everyone must see it! Everyone must remember her!" Elizabeth, in a very sarcastic tone, says, "How could anyone forget her?" Elizabeth goes to close the door. Barnabas shouts, "No, Elizabeth! Don't close the door!", but she cannot hear him and closes the door. Barnabas bangs on the door, shouting, "Let me in! Let me in!"

In a seemingly deserted room in the East Wing, Barnabas Collins has stumbled across an incredible discovery. For in that room he has seen and heard a Julia and an Elizabeth who are strangers to him, living lives that are completely separate and different from the lives of Julia and Elizabeth he has just seen downstairs. For in this room, Barnabas Collins seems to be able to see a world that exists in Parallel Time. See, but not enter.

In the drawing room, Elizabeth is telling Julia, "There are no records of anything strange ever happening in the East Wing. The East Wing is remarkably free of secrets".

Barnabas is in the room thinking, "There's no trace of that other existence! Julia and Elizabeth, so different! And what about Angelique? Will I ever find out about her?" He hears a noise and peeks outside and sees Roger in the hallway. Roger does not see him. Barnabas thinks to himself, "He can be here for only one reason, to see one person!" He quietly follows him, thinking, "He will lead me to her, and if all goes well, by tomorrow this ordeal will be over for him - and Megan!" Roger goes to the room where Megan is hiding. Megan tells him, "I have been waiting for you!" and bites him. Barnabas, in hiding, sees this and flees, horrified by the sight. When Megan finishes feeding, she tells Roger, You will remain here guarding my coffin, understand?" Roger replies, "Yes, I understand". Megan smiles, showing her fangs.

Down in the drawing room, Elizabeth tells Julia, "Thank you" Julia asks, "For what?" Elizabeth replies, "For the conversation. Talking about the East Wing took my mind off of Jeb and Carolyn. Such an impetuous young man. Do you think he will be good for Carolyn?" Julia replies, "I'm sure he will". Elizabeth asks, "I'm going up. Are you going up too?" Julia sees Barnabas in the foyer shaking his head and replies, "Not just yet". Barnabas hides, and Elizabeth goes out. Barnabas joins Julia in the drawing room. Julia asks, "You were in the East Wing?" Barnabas replies, "Yes". Julia asks, "Did you see anything?" Barnabas recounts what happened, about seeing the portrait of Angelique. Julia exclaims, "Angelique! She's part of this too?" Barnabas tells her that once gain he tried to enter, but found his way barred by some invisible force. Julia remarks, "I can't say I'm sorry about that". Barnabas asks, "Why?" Julia replies, "We don't know enough about this. It could be very dangerous. We've got to talk to Stokes as soon as we can". Barnabas tells her, "Yes, but there's something else we must do first. Megan is in the East Wing. Roger is guarding her". He starts to say, in a very shaky voice, "I saw...Julia, it was dreadful!" The cock crows. They leave.

Megan asks Roger, "Are you sure no one saw you come here?" Roger replies that he is. Megan remarks, "I have a strange feeling someone did". Roger growls, "Whoever did will pay for it with his life!" Megan tells him, "After dark, we'll move to a safer place" and goes into her coffin.

At the Old House, Julia is telling Willie, "And that's what you must do. Understand?" Willie replies, "I understand, but I don't like it!" Julia reminds him, "It must be done - for all of us, Megan, Roger and most of all, Barnabas!" Willie looks at the hammer and stake Julia with a look of anguish in his face and says, "There must be some other way", but Julia replies, "There is no other way". She explains the plan to him: She will go back to Collinwood, and he is to go there a short time later and say he's looking for a book for Barnabas. Julia will pretend to go up with him to find it, and they will destroy Megan. Willie moans, "Roxanne! There's a whole side of my life that she knows nothing about!"

Julia returns to Collinwood. Elizabeth, who's pacing around, asks, "Julia, have you seen Megan?" Julia lies, "No, why?" Elizabeth replies, "She hasn't been seen since Phillip's death. She hasn't been in her room. Where is she? Maybe I should call the police". Julia, alarmed, replies, "No! Don't do that. She's probably off by herself thinking things over". She is relieved to hear Elizabeth reply, "You're probably right". There's a knock on the front doors. Elizabeth answers. It's Willie. He tells her, "Dr. Hoffman said I could come and get some books for Barnabas". Julia tells him, "They're upstairs, Willie". Willie goes up. Elizabeth asks Julia to find out what she can about Megan and tell her. Julia agrees to do so, then goes up the stairs.

In Megan's hiding room, Roger is asleep on the job. Outside, Julia is telling the very anguished Willie, "You must not think of her as a person. She is a creature, an evil thing". They go in. Roger awakens and growls, "Get out of here!" Julia tries to explain, "It's the best thing for her. It's the only way she'll have peace and rest, and you too, Roger", but Roger repeats, "I said Get out of here! Leave her alone!" and attacks Willie. They fight. Roger seems stronger, and manages to wrestle Willie out of the room. Finally, Willie struggles out of Roger's grasp, and lands a hard left hook to the body. Roger doubles over in pain, and Willie grabs a bottle and cracks it over Roger's head, knocking him out. Willie goes back into the room and tells Julia, "You'd better go look at him". Julia starts to say, "Don't you want...", but Willie says, "No, if I'm going to do it, I'd rather do it alone". Julia goes out to check on Roger. Willie opens the coffin, carefully positions the stake over Megan's heart, and hammers it in. Megan screams horribly .

Outside, Roger awakens and sees Julia stooping over him. He asks, "Julia, what are you doing here?" She lies, "Elizabeth said I could inspect the architecture in the East Wing. It's very interesting". Roger exclaims, "The East Wing?? Did you say the East Wing? What am I doing here?" Julia replies, "Oh, you must have had some reason. You've had a bad hit on the head". Roger continues, "I can think of no reason for being here in the East Wing!" Julia replies, "Well, you must have had one. Being hit on the head can make one forget things". Roger hears a noise coming from the now closed doors of the coffin room and wants to investigate, but Julia manages to drag him away, saying, "No, we'd better get you treated right way. You can check it out later".

Later in the living room of the Old House Willie is moaning, "I did it, Barnabas, I did it, but I don't think I can forget that look on her face even if I live to be a hundred". Barnabas replies, "Remember, Willie, it had to be done. Now you will take Megan and bury her in an unmarked grave. Julia will get rid of all her clothes". He then turns to Julia and asks, "And you know what to do?" Julia replies, "Yes, tell Elizabeth that I saw Megan and she told me she was leaving Collinwood forever". After Willie leaves, Barnabas asks Julia, "You were in the East Wing. Did you see anything in there?" Julia replies, "No, and I don't think you should go there. It might be dangerous", but Barnabas says, "I'll take the chance. Something draws me there". Julia replies, "Whatever's drawing you there, I hope it doesn't harm you".

Barnabas goes and again opens the door to the room in the East Wing. He exclaims "Willie!", for inside is Willie Loomis. Willie, however, looks subtly different than usual. He's dressed in a snappy blue blazer and nice shirt and pants, and looks more refined and sophisticated than he usually is". Barnabas shouts, "Willie!", but Willie doesn't respond. He is busy searching the room for something, looking through drawers and at books. Julia comes in and growls, "Those are HER things!" Willie retorts, "Wherever Angelique is now, she won't be needing them". Julia angrily says, "Don't talk about her like that!" Willie says, "All I can says it she's dead, and that's the truth!". Julia shouts, "Get out of here!", but Willie replies, "Not until get what I came for. She borrowed it. I need it!" Julia tells him, "When I find it, I'll give it to you, now go!", but Willie refuses, saying, "I need it now! And I will have it!" He looks through some more books near the window and finds it. Julia grabs the book from it, sneers at it and says, "What if she were still alive today? Do you think she would want your book? Take your book and get out of here!" and contemptuously throws it out the door. Somehow, it manages to make it through to Barnabas' side. Barnabas instinctively turns and bends over to pick up the book. When he looks up again, the room has become dark and empty again. Barnabas gasps, "The room's empty! The twist of time closed it again!" He looks at the book and gasps, "But the twist of time opened long enough to let this through!" He slowly reads the title, "The Life and Death of Barnabas Collins by William Hollingshead Loomis."  He slowly repeats, "The Life... and DEATH?! of Barnabas Collins????"

Episode 972
(COL 19/DISK 4 #1)

Tape Date: February 26, 1970
Air Date: March 17, 1970 Tuesday
Writer: Violet Welles
Director: Lela Swift
Worldvision Rerun: 746
Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins
John Karlen as Willie Loomis
Thayer David as Professor Timothy Eliot Stokes
Joan Bennett as Elizabeth Collins Stoddard
Christopher Pennock as Jeb Hawkes
Nancy Barrett as Carolyn Stoddard Hawkes

On this night, Barnabas Collins has been drawn to the room in the East Wing, where he has twice before seen inhabitants of Collinwood living their lives in what seems to be a zone of Parallel Time. He has learned already that a strange and different Elizabeth and Julia are part of it. So is Angelique, so is Quentin. And on this night, he has just seen Julia quarrel with an uncannily changed Willie Loomis, and seen her throw a book at him. A book that has somehow done what Barnabas can not do: broken the time barrier.

Barnabas is at the Old House, slowly flipping through the pages of the book. Willie returns, saying, "I did it, Barnabas. Every bit of it, just as you said. Anyone looking for Megan will have to look good and hard to find her". Noticing that there's a funny look on Barnabas' face, he asks, "What's wrong, Barnabas? Why are you looking at me like that?" Barnabas replies, "Maybe it's best you don't know". Willie says, "I gotta know, Barnabas! Why are you looking at me like you've never seen me before?", gestures at the book Barnabas is holding and asks, "Does it have anything to do with that?" Barnabas asks, "Why do you ask that?" Willie replies, "I don't know. Just a funny feeling I've got". Willie looks closer at the title and exclaims, "'The Life and Death Of Barnabas Collins'? What's that? Who wrote that, Barnabas?" Barnabas replies, "YOU did!" Willie, puzzled, asks, "What are you talking about?" Barnabas says, "See for yourself" and hands him the book. Willie reads the front cover, "'The Life and Death Of Barnabas Collins' by William Hollingshead Loomis'" and exclaims, "Hey! Nobody knows my middle name! I didn't write this! It must have been some other Willie Loomis". But as he is handing the book back to Barnabas, he notices the a picture of himself on the back cover and exclaims, "Huh? What?!" He reads the blurb on the back cover:

"Mr. Loomis has written three best-selling novels, 'Pride of Lions', 'Gold Hearted Lover', and 'Beyond the Door', all of which have been made into major motion pictures..."

Willie exclaims, "Those are LIES, Barnabas, LIES! Look at those clothes! I've never owned clothes like that! Where did you get this book?" Barnabas replies, "In the East Wing of Collinwood". Willie looks through the book and says, "Barnabas, I don't understand this. This is in my handwriting, but I never wrote it!" Barnabas reads the inscription Willie found, "To the Cleo that inspired". Willie remarks, "I don't know anyone named Cleo!" Barnabas explains, "Cleo is the must of History, Willie". Willie continues, "There's nothing in the book but LIES, Barnabas! It says here that you died. But you never died, Barnabas". Barnabas replies, "Not in this time band, maybe, but in the other". He explains the theory of Parallel Time to Willie, finishing, "and in one band of time, you are a well known author, just as I was born into a wealthy family in the 18th century and died in 1830, mourned by all my descendents and especially my wife Josette". He pauses a moment, looking wistful about this, then says, "I've got to see Professor Stokes about this". Willie tells Barnabas, "He's coming to dinner at Collinwood tomorrow night". Barnabas replies, "Good. That'll give me time to read this". Willie remarks, "I don't think that's a very good idea. If I were you, I'd burn it!", but Barnabas replies, "I want to understand it". Willie remarks, " "Well, I warned you" and leaves. Barnabas again reads, in a sad tone of voice, "Barnabas Collins was born in the 18th century, heir to lands..." He skips to the end of the book and reads, "and he died in 1830, grieved by his descendents and most particularly by his wife Josette". He mutters "Josette..." in a very sad voice.

At Collinwood, Professor Stokes is talking to Elizabeth in the drawing room. Stokes remarks, "Good to see that everything is all right again". Elizabeth replies, "Everything is not all right again. Carolyn has married Jeb". Stokes asks, "And you couldn't stop them?" Elizabeth replies, "I didn't have the heart to try. Carolyn's so much in love with him, but I'm worried. Carolyn promised to call me when they got to their destination, but she hasn't. She could be anywhere. I'm afraid for my daughter, terribly afraid!"

Jeb opens the door to yet another hotel room. He turns on the lights and sees the shadow on the wall. It is now man sized. Jeb gasps, "The shadow! It's in here! I knew it would be here waiting for me! I've got to get away from it somehow!" and turns off the lights. Jebs jumps when Carolyn playfully sneaks up behind him and puts her hands over his eyes. She starts to talk about dinner, saying, "The manager says there's a wonderful seafood restaurant..." but Jeb interrupts her saying, "We've got to get out of here! We've got to leave this place right now!" But Carolyn refuses, saying, "We're not going anywhere! Not until we have a talk!" She is about to turn on the lights but Jeb stops her, saying, "Keep them off! Please!" Carolyn asks, "Why?" Jeb lies, "I've been driving with the sun in my eyes all day and they hurt". Carolyn says, "Why do we have to go?", but Jeb only replies, "We've got to get out of here!" Carolyn asks, "What are you running from?" Jeb asks, "What makes you think I'm running from anything?" Carolyn replies, "The way you're acting. There must be an explanation. Whatever it is, I'll understand", but Jeb replies, "I can't! The honeymoon's over!" and drags her away.

Stokes is in the drawing room of Collinwood sipping sherry with Elizabeth. They continue to talk about Carolyn. Barnabas comes into the room and says he'd like to talk to Stokes. Elizabeth leaves. Stokes asks, "What is it you'd like to talk to me about?" Barnabas replies, "About the theory of parallel time you discussed with Julia one night, the theory that there may be more than one time band". Stokes replies, "Yes, the theory that in some other time band we live different lives because we've made different choices. Perhaps in some other time band I married my high school sweetheart. I would have a totally different life, perhaps with several children. There may be many Elliot Stokes in many time bands leading many different lives. An interesting theory, but just a theory". Barnabas replies, "Maybe it's more than just a theory".

Barnabas has told Stokes what he saw in the East Wing. Stokes is saying to Barnabas, "You saw all that?" Barnabas replies, "Yes". Stokes wonders if there's a way to reach the other time band. Barnabas shows Stokes the book, saying, "There has to be, for this has reached me". Stokes examines the book and asks, "What is this?" Barnabas replies, "A book about the life of the other Barnabas, born in 18th century, married Josette DuPres, and died in 1830. Of course, the original Barnabas in our time band went to England in 1779 (!), never to return". Stokes remarks, "I wonder what I'm like in that other time band, or even if I exist. When I was ten years old, I almost drowned. Perhaps in that time band I did." He asks, "And you, do you ever wonder what your life might have been?" Barnabas replies sadly, "Yes I do".

Barnabas and Stokes go to the East Wing room. It is dark and empty. Barnabas says, "I wished you could have seen it. I don't understand why it's here sometimes and sometimes it isn't" Stokes replies, "My guess is the time band is always here, but it can only be seen when there is a warp in time". He points out a small tear in one of his jacket sleeves and says, "You can only see this if the angle and lighting are just right. Otherwise, you can't see it and it doesn't exist for you". Barnabas asks, "You mean everyone can see it if they're here at just the right time?" Stokes replies, "Yes, and I wish I could see it. This is a very important discovery, proof of what has been until now only a very interesting theory!" Barnabas remarks, "It would be even more important if I could find a way to be here when it changes and cross over". Stokes warns against this, "No! It's far too dangerous! We know far too little about this! You might be trapped! Don't do anything to destroy yourself!"

Jeb and Carolyn arrive back at the Carriage House. As Jeb is opening the door, Carolyn asks, "Shouldn't we go to Collinwood and tell Mother we're back first?" Jeb replies coldly, "Go ahead. I'm not stopping you". Carolyn asks, "Aren't you coming?" Jeb replies, "No". Carolyn says, "You hardly said a word on the drive back. Are you angry about something? Please tell me". Jeb replies, "There's nothing to tell. Go to Collinwood". They go into the cottage. Carolyn asks, "What are you going to do?" Jeb replies, "Unpack". Carolyn remarks, "It would help considerably if you would turn on the lights" and turns a lamp on. Jeb sees the shadow on a wall, and quickly grabs Carolyn so she doesn't see it. Carolyn asks, "Jeb, what's wrong?" Jeb yells at her, "If you're going to go, go! Go to Collinwood! Go away and stay away!" Carolyn whines, "Jeb, I don't understand..." Jeb yells, "I don't want you anymore! I made a big mistake". Carolyn shouts back, "Maybe both of us made a big mistake" and runs out the door in tears. Jeb turns off the lights and sits fearfully...

Carolyn runs to Collinwood. Elizabeth greets her ecstatically, "Carolyn! Dear!" They embrace. Elizabeth asks, "Are you all right?" Carolyn lies, "Yes". Elizabeth asks, "Where's Jeb?" Carolyn replies, "He's staying at the Carriage House". Elizabeth asks, "He? What about you?" Carolyn replies, "I'm staying here". Elizabeth remarks, "Carolyn, I don't understand". Carolyn replies, "I don't want to talk about it!" and runs up the stairs.

Barnabas returns to the Old House. Willie asks him, "Barnabas, did you get to talk to Professor Stokes?" Barnabas replies, "Yes". Willie says, "I've been thinking about that book". Barnabas replies, "So have I, and the life where I won and loved Josette". Willie warns him, "You died in that life, Barnabas. Don't you forget that!"

Carolyn has thinks things over, "Why did he force us to quarrel? Why did he force me to go? I don't understand! But I've got to!" She decides to go back to the Carriage House to talk to Jeb. But when she gets there, she finds the lights out and door locked. She worries, "Did he go? Did he leave me?" She takes out a key, unlocks the door and goes in. She finds that Jeb has not left. He is sitting fearfully in the dark. Jeb growls, "I said, leave me alone! Go away and stay away!" Carolyn replies, "No! Jeb, you've got to tell me what's wrong, you can't just sit here in the dark". She turns on a lamp, sees the shadow on the wall and screams, "AHHHHHHHHH!!!!". Jeb immediately embraces her and tells her, "I didn't want you to know! I didn't want you to ever see it! I didn't want it to hurt you!". Carolyn replies, "But it is going to hurt you, isn't it. It's going to kill you, isn't it?" Jeb turns off the lights, saying, "At least this way I won't have to see it happen". Carolyn grabs him and drags him off, saying, "I don't want it to kill you! We've got to get away!" Jeb protests, "There's nowhere to go!", but Carolyn replies, "There has to be!" and drags him out the door.

For some at Collinwood, this night has held the promise of new roles. Barnabas Collins has found himself drawn more and more to the room in the East Wing, for another time band seems to exist. But for others, the night seems to have brought an unexpected end to hope. Jeb Hawkes has brought his new bride home, quarreled with her, demanded she leave him alone. An unhappy Carolyn has gone to Collinwood, but unable to stay there, she returns to the carriage house, to try find the answer for Jeb's incredible actions.

Jeb and Carolyn are in the drawing room at Collinwood. Jeb is showing Carolyn the black paper cutout Angelique had made. Carolyn asks, "And it began with this?" Jeb replies, "And every night it gets larger and larger, and is able to reach out farther and farther". He moans, "Carolyn, I didn't want you to know, but you had to know, didn't you?" Carolyn remarks, "Now we both can fight it". Jeb moans, "It's impossible to fight it. It's going to kill me, just like it did in that vision!" Carolyn asks, "What vision?" Jeb recounts the vision to her. Carolyn asks, "Who showed this to you? Who did this to you?", but Jeb refuses to tell her, saying only, "I have enemies". Carolyn asks, "Who?", but Jeb still refuses to tell her. Jeb reminds her, "You promised to accept me the way I am. I've told you too much already". Carolyn remarks, "The shadow isn't here during the day, only at night, right?" Jeb replies, "Right". Carolyn says, "Whoever did this can free you of it", but Jeb replies that the person who did it has no intention of doing so. Carolyn asks, "Was it Nicholas Blair?" Jeb asks, "Why do you say that?" Carolyn replies, "Because he's full of evil". Carolyn says, "Jeb, maybe if I go to him.."., but Jeb says, "NO! I'll do whatever has to be done!" Carolyn reminds him, "You've got to do something soon! The shadow's growing larger!" Jeb replies, "I will do something!". Carolyn asks, "What?" Jeb replies, "The less you know, the better!". Carolyn asks, "But there's one thing I've got to know. Do you still love me?" Jeb embraces her and says, "I love you! I'll love you no matter what happens!"

Quentin is with Sabrina in a room somewhere. Sabrina is telling Quentin, "I don't know what to do. Tomorrow night's the full moon. I know it, and Chris knows it, but he refuses to talk about it." Quentin asks, "What do you expect him to say?" Sabrina replies, "I expect him to say he trusts me. To let me help him deal with this". Quentin remarks, "No one can help him with this, Sabrina", but Sabrina replies, "I want to try. I want to help him. If Chris won't do anything, I will. I've thought of a way". Quentin asks, "What way?" Sabrina replies, "This time is different from all the others because Bruno knows". Quentin asks, "What are you going to do?" Sabrina replies, "I have some money. Maybe if I go and give it to him, he'll go away". Quentin asks, "You would do all this for Chris?" Sabrina replies, "I'd do anything. I want to marry him!" Quentin says, "No! You can't think of marriage until this is cured!". He agrees to accompany her to see Bruno.

Bruno is in a room somewhere, once again cutting and eating pieces from a red delicious apple with a dagger. Jeb comes. Bruno asks, "What do you want?" Jeb doesn't answer. Bruno points the knife at Jeb and growls, "I asked you a question! Now answer me! Things between us aren't the way they used to be! When I ask you a question, you'll answer it!". Jeb looks down at the knife and says, "That knife can't hurt me!" Bruno realizes the truth of this and puts the knife down on the table and says, "That knife doesn't need to kill you. You're already dead. Nicholas said when you destroyed that box, you destroyed yourself. It's only a matter of time, now. Why are you here?" Jeb says, "You've got to speak to Nicholas for me!" Bruno exclaims, "You've got to be kidding!". Jeb continues, "Angelique Rumson, Skyler Rumson's wife, put something on me. It's going to kill me! It's a shadow that gets larger and larger, and it's going to destroy me! Nicholas has powers! He's got to help me!" Bruno replies, "You don't know how much you hurt Nicholas and all of us." Jeb tries to explain, "Because I loved Carolyn! We're married now!". Bruno quips, "Does she realize she's going to be a very young widow? Maybe after you're out of the way, I'll make a play for her myself. She's young, beautiful and rich, and she'll need company..." Jeb growls, "Why you..." and starts to attack Bruno, but stops when Bruno says, "Easy! Maybe I will go to Nicholas and tell him what Angelique is doing to you. But it won't do any good. Even if he can do something about it, it doesn't matter. Minute by minute, you have less time to live. You'll be gone eventually, so how does it matter how you die?" Jeb replies, "If I can beat this shadow, I can beat anything! I'll find a way. I've got to, for Carolyn!"

Carolyn is in the drawing room at Collinwood pouring herself a drink. Maggie comes in and says, "Welcome home!" Noticing that Carolyn doesn't seem herself, Maggie asks, "Are you all right?" Carolyn lies, "Yes. Why do you ask?" Maggie replies, "It's just that I'm not used to seeing you drink so early". Carolyn says, "You missed the wedding ceremony. Why don't you have a drink with me?", but Maggie declines, saying, "I'm seeing Barnabas for dinner". Jeb comes and Maggie leaves. Carolyn asks, "Did you see Nicholas?" Jeb replies, "No, I saw Bruno, and he wouldn't lift a finger to help". He moans, "Oh, Carolyn, you're going to be a young widow!" Carolyn says, "Don't say that! Please!" Jeb notes with trepidation, "It's beginning to get dark..."

Maggie is coming down the stairs. She suddenly notices the trident mark on her hand and thinks, "Quentin! Quentin, where are you?"

At Sabrina's, the clock reads 7:30. Outside, Quentin is about to knock on the door when suddenly he notices the trident mark on his hand and says, "I don't want to be here! I want to be with Maggie!" and leaves.

The clock now reads 8:00. Sabrina wonders, "Why isn't he here? Did he change his mind? Well, he has every right to. Even a good friend can only be expected to do so much, not more. But I must do more. Bruno must be dealt with, else Chris will be in danger. I will deal with him, alone if necessary. No, I'm not going to be alone!" She goes to the bureau, opens a drawer, takes out a silver, snub nosed revolver and says, "This is going with me!"

The clock now reads 8:00. Sabrina notes, "He's over an hour late! He has changed his mind!". She holds a large roll of money in one hand and the revolver in the other and remarks, "Which will it be, Bruno? The decision will be yours!" Then she thinks to herself, "My God! What am I doing with my brother's gun? I was really going to...But I must! For Chris' sake, I must!"

Maggie and Quentin are in the garden outside Collinwood kissing. Maggie says, "I have to go see Barnabas". Quentin tells her, "Barnabas is unimportant". Maggie agrees, "He doesn't matter". Quentin says, "No one matters except us". Maggie echoes, "No one exists except the two of us, we are the only two people in the entire world". They continue kissing...

Jeb and Carolyn are still in the drawing room. The shadow appears on the wall. They quickly turn the lights off. Carolyn tells Jeb, "There's so little time left! You've got to do something!" She suggests, "Go to Barnabas, he knows a lot of things!", but Jeb vetoes the idea. She then suggests, "Professor Stokes, then", but Jeb just says, "He won't be able to do anything". Carolyn, exasperated, says, "Forget Nicholas Blair, forget Barnabas, forget Professor Stokes, are you ready to forget me too?" They embrace.

Sabrina shows up at Bruno's place just as he is putting on his fur coat and is about to go out. She offers him the money to leave Collinsport and forget all about Chris, but he says, "it's not enough". She tells him, "I've got more", but he says he's not interested, "Chris Jennings is more valuable than a whole pile of money". Sabrina asks, "How?" Bruno explains, "Chris is a source of power, and I will figure out how to use that power". He turns to leave, saying, "Now I really must go". Sabrina says, "Wait!". Bruno replies, "There's nothing more you can say". Sabrina pulls the gun out of her purse and says, "Then I'll let this speak for me!" Bruno stammers, "What are you going to do?" Sabrina replies, "I love Chris, and I'm not going to let anyone hurt him. I'm going to kill you!"

Strange and frightening events have occurred on this night inn and around the great house at Collinwood. Inside the house, a young man named Jeb Hawkes has been subjected to a kind of terror he has never known before: a mysterious shadow that threatens to destroy him. And in a small house on the edge of town, Sabrina Stuart has confronted a man known only as Bruno. A man capable of killing the one she loves.

Bruno's eye bug out in fear. Suddenly, a door opens and Sky Rumson comes into the room. Sabrina is distracted momentarily, and Bruno knocks the gun out of her hands. Sabrina tries to flee, but is grabbed by Rumson. Bruno picks the gun up and points it at a frightened Sabrina. Bruno assures her, "I'm not going to kill you. On the contrary, I admire you. I'm very grateful to you". Sabrina asks, "For what?" Bruno replies, "You showed me how much you love Chris. If his love for you is as deep, you may be of use to me". Sabrina asks, "What do you mean?" Bruno replies, "You'll find out later". He orders Rumson, "Take her into the back room". Rumson complains, "Why are you giving orders all of a sudden?" They get into an argument about who's boss. Rumson threatens to complain to Nicholas about Bruno's behavior. Bruno warns him, "If you question Nicholas about my authority, Nicholas will back me! Now take her into that back room!". Sky, clearly unhappy, does so. In the back room, Sabrina asks, "What is he going to do?" Sky replies, "Call Nicholas". Sabrina asks, "Who's Nicholas?" Sky replies, "You'll find out".

Bruno is looking impatiently at the mantel clock. It reads 3:50. Nicholas finally arrives. He asks, "What is this all about?" Bruno replies, "There's something in the back room I want you to see." Sky comes out and says, "Nicholas, we've got talk..." Bruno interrupts, "Well, you'll have to wait". Sky snaps, "I'M talking to Nicholas!", but Nicholas tells him, "Give us a few minutes, Sky". Bruno takes Nicholas into the back room. Nicholas asks, "Who's she?" Bruno explains, "Her name is Sabrina Stuart. She's the fiancÚ of Chris Jennings". Nicholas asks, "What pray tell does Chris Jennings have with me?" Bruno coyly answers, "Even a man who is pure of heart and says his prayers by night..." Nicholas raises his eyebrows in interest and remarks, "Werewolf! How interesting!" Bruno asks, "That pleases you?" Nicholas replies, "I thing I have found a way to redeem myself. There's a full moon tomorrow night, and if we can get Mr. Jennings here I think I can put him to good use". Bruno asks, "How?" Nicholas explains, "Have you wondered how Jeb is staying alive?" Bruno remarks, "He's not going to stay living long. Angelique will see to that". Nicholas replies, "I don't want Angelique to see to that! I must destroy him! Now I believe his marriage to Carolyn is keeping him alive, giving him the will to live. If anything should happen to Carolyn, Jeb would lose his will to live. My mission here has been a failure, but if I can destroy Jeb, I will redeem myself to some extent. If Angelique gets him first, I am doomed, Bruno!"

Jeb is sitting in the drawing room of Collinwood, looking into the fire. There's a knock at the front doors. Jeb answers. It's Chris Jennings. They introduce themselves to one another, as they have never met before. Chris asks, "Is Sabrina Stuart here?" Jeb replies that she isn't. Chris says, "Maybe Carolyn knows where she is", but Jeb replies, "Carolyn left with her mother about an hour ago". Chris thanks him and leaves.

Sky is inside the back room guarding Sabrina. After a while, he remarks, "I think Nicholas is finished talking with Bruno. I have something to discuss with him!" and goes out into the front room. He is surprised to find that Nicholas is not there- but Angelique is. She remarks, "From tycoon to lackey! My, how the mighty are fallen! Tell me, how does it feel to be a has been? All your businesses have failed. A lackey is all you are now!" Sky protests, "That's not true! I am important to Nicholas!", but Angelique retorts, "Don't be silly. Look what he has you doing now, guarding that girl. He won't even tell you what his plans are". Sky shouts, "Get off my back!" Angelique continues, "Do you want me to tell you what's going to happen in the end? Nicholas will find some way to do himself in, as he usually does, and you'll be all alone. Then someone will put you out of your misery. Maybe it'll be me!" and leaves.

Nicholas goes to Collinwood to visit Jeb. Jeb asks, "Why are you here?" Nicholas replies, "I got your message from Bruno. I thought you deserved a reply". Jeb asks, "You're going to help me!?" Nicholas replies, "No. You must accept one fact. You're doomed now. No one can help you". Jeb begs, "Please! Angelique will destroy me!", but Nicholas says, "I sincerely hope not! I hope to have the pleasure myself! All I can say, Jeb, is one of us is going to destroy you. I hope it's me! Good night, Jeb", and leaves.

In the cottage, Chris is talking on the phone, "I looked everywhere. I know tomorrow night's the full moon...Quentin, I don't care about Windcliff. Sabrina's missing, and I'm not going anywhere until I find her". There's a knock at the door. Chris answers. It's Sky Rumson, whom he doesn't know. Sky tells Chris, "You're looking for Sabrina Stuart. I know where she is and how to get her out. She's being held in a house at the edge of town by a man named Bruno. Do you know him?" Chris replies, "Yes". Sky continues, "You've got to get her out of there". Chris points out, "I don't know you. How can I trust you?" Sky explains, "I've been guarding Sabrina for them, but I don't like the way they hurt people. I just want to get out from under them". Chris asks, "How do I know they didn't send you here to trap me?" Sky replies, "You don't, but you'll have to take that chance." He gives a key to Chris and tells him to be at the house at 12:00 sharp, saying, "I'll take care of Bruno and you'll take Sabrina".

Jeb is sitting in the drawing room at Collinwood. He turns on the lights briefly, sees the shadow, gasps, "Oh God! It's even bigger now!" and quickly turns the lights off and calls, "Angelique! Angelique! You've got to come to me! You've got to let me talk to you!"

Sky returns to the house at the edge of town. Sabrina asks, "Did you see Chris?" Sky replies, "Yes. We made the plans. If all goes well you'll be out at midnight". Unknown to them, Bruno is listening outside the door...

At Collinwood, Jeb is sitting fearfully in the dark again. He hears a voice say, "You can't hide from it, Jeb, no matter how hard you try!" Jeb calls out, "Who is it?" Angelique steps out of the shadows, says, "You kept asking for me to appear. Here I am" and turns on the lights. Jeb says, "DON'T!", but Angelique assures him, "You're safe. The Shadow won't appear while I'm here". Jeb begs, "Angelique! You've got to take it off me!" Angelique replies, "I can't think of a single reason why I should". Jeb explains, "I'm a changed man! Look, I'm married to Carolyn now! I love her very much!" Angelique retorts, "The way I loved Sky Rumson very much?" Jeb replies, "I wasn't responsible for that! I hardly knew him! I had nothing to do with him becoming a Leviathan!" Angelique says, "But the whole conspiracy revolved around YOU, therefore I hold you responsible, but not only you. I intend to settle Nicholas as well!" Jeb moans, "Don't you have any feelings at all?" Angelique replies, "I once did, but they all died when I found out about Sky". Jeb begs, "Please, if not for my sake, then Carolyn's!" Angelique replies, "I know how she must feel, but you don't have much time to wait. In a short time, the shadow will grow to full size, and that'll be the end of you. And I'll be there, Jeb. I wouldn't want to miss it!" and vanishes. Jeb defiantly, "There'll be nothing for you to see! I'm going to beat it!"

It is exactly midnight. Chris, using the key Sky had given him, sneaks into the house at the edge of town. No one is in the front room. Sky opens a door - only to find Sky tied up in there. Sky moans weakly, "Help me! Help me!". As Chris is about to untie him, he hears a voice behind him saying, "Good Evening, Mr. Jennings. Sabrina and I have been waiting for you!". He turns and sees Bruno standing there holding at gun at him...

The night before the moon is full. And in a house on the outskirts of town, Bruno holds Sabrina prisoner, hoping to lure Chris there. He plans to use Chris as bait for a horrifying scheme, and Chris falls into his trap, as he comes to Bruno's to rescue his beloved.

Sabrina is locked in the back room. Bruno and Chris are in the front room. Bruno, who has put the gun away, is saying, "Sabrina, Sabrina's the one you want. Would you like to see her? Looking for a way for the two of you to get out? I can read minds! I know what you're thinking! Now you're wondering who else is in this house. Are we alone here?..." As he is talking, he paces and turns his back on Chris. Chris takes advantage of the opportunity to try to rush him, but it's a trap - Bruno quickly wheels around, catches Chris with an uppercut to the stomach, then one to the jaw, knocking him down. He then pulls out a dagger and says, "THIS is the way I fight! Not with my fists!" He lets Chris get up and tells him to sit in a chair. Chris says, "I know you have her here". He goes to the door and calls to Sabrina, telling her he'll open the door so she and Chris can see one another, but she is not to come out. Bruno opens the doors. Sabrina tells Chris, "Get out of here! Get out of here any way you can! I'll be all right!" Bruno sneers, "How touching!" Sabrina tries to go to Chris, but Bruno pushes her back into the room and closes the doors. Chris asks, "You'd kill her, wouldn't you?" Bruno likes, "I wouldn't want to. And I won't, if you do as you're told. Tomorrow night, the moon will be full." Chris asks, "What do you want from me?" Bruno explains, "The pleasure of your company, the rest of tonight, tomorrow, and tomorrow night. You and I will spend the day together, and when the moon rises. I have an enemy, a man who shouldn't be alive, but he is because he's in love, and it makes his will to live very strong. You and I, we will destroy the person who's keeping him alive".

Barnabas is once again in the parallel time room. It is dark and empty. He thinks to himself, "What does the mystery of this room mean? I can't forget seeing my friends leading such different lives! Could Stokes and Julia be right? Is there another time band? Do we all live in a time band where we live different lives because we made different decisions? I must find out!"

Roger is comforting Carolyn. He tries to find out what's troubling her, but she won't tell him. Finally, he tells her, "Go get some sleep". Carolyn replies, "Good Night, Uncle Roger". Roger remarks, "Carolyn, whatever it is, it can be changed". Carolyn replies, "I wish I knew how" and leaves. Roger pours himself a stiff drink. He hears a noise and goes out into the foyer to see what it is and finds that it's Barnabas coming down the stairs into the foyer. Roger asks, "Barnabas, what are you doing here this time of night?" Barnabas replies, "I know this is a strange hour to be roaming Collinwood, but I need to talk to you. I need your advice, your help. You see, Roger, there's this room in the East Wing I must tell you about..."

At the house at the edge of town, Bruno is having fun tormenting Chris by looking out the window and remarking, "I can look at the moon and see how beautiful it is. But you, how does it feel knowing it will be even more beautiful, and more full tomorrow night? Are you going to help me?" Chris replies, "I'd never help you!" Bruno says, "Do you love Sabrina? If you do, you'll help me. I'm going to let you two together for awhile. Perhaps it'll remind you how much you mean to one another". He opens the door and lets Chris in with Sabrina. They embrace. Sabrina moans, "Oh, Chris! There's no way out!" Chris replied, "There's got to be a way out, somehow!" Sabrina asks, "How?" Chris replies, "I don't know, but we will!", but Sabrina says, "There is no way, Chris! Oh, Chris, hold me!" He does.

At Collinwood, Barnabas has finished telling Roger about the parallel time room. Roger exclaims, "Willie Loomis writing a book?! Julia giving orders to Elizabeth!? A room lived in one moment and not the next? It all seems so incredible! I'd like to see this room!". Barnabas points out , "It may be empty right now". Roger asks, "How can it be empty one moment and not the next? Let's go look at it". Barnabas replies, "All right, but I'd like you to keep this a secret. I don't want to alarm Elizabeth and the others". Roger agrees, saying, "The house is unsettled enough as it is".

They go to hall outside the room. Roger asks, "How did you happen to find this room?" Barnabas lies, "I was outside, saw a light in here, and came to investigate". Barnabas opens the doors. The room is dark and empty. Barnabas sadly remarks, "You don't believe me, do you?" Roger replies, "A year ago I wouldn't have. But now, with all that's happened, I do believe you, Barnabas, but I don't understand it. I don't understand it!" There being apparently nothing to see, they close the door. Roger tells Barnabas he's leaving and asks, "Coming with me?" Barnabas replies, "I'll leave through another door that leads to the path to the old House". Roger leaves. A few seconds later, Barnabas hears Roger say, "Here I am again!". He looks around but sees no one. He hears the voice again, "Your favorite wine! I even have two glasses. How absurd I am!'. This time Barnabas notices that the voice is coming from inside the parallel time room. He opens the door and is shocked to find Roger in there. Roger is pouring and drinking some red wine. He toasts the portrait of Angelique, "Cheers, darling!" and continues to talk to the portrait, "If only you were really here. I live for these moments here with you. Sometimes I imagine you coming through those doors there...." Carolyn comes into the room and remarks, "Talking to yourself?" Roger growls, "What are you doing here? She wouldn't want you here!". Carolyn replies, "You're worse that she is, treating this place like shrine!" and starts looking through the room for something. Roger asks, "What are you doing?" Carolyn replies, "Looking for my husband's book". Barnabas gasps, "Willie married to Carolyn?!" Carolyn explains, "She threw it out the door and Willie couldn't find it". Roger sneers, "The Life and Death of Barnabas Collins. What would anyone possibly want with that?" Carolyn explains, "A history magazine wants to reprint a chapter, and this is the only copy we have". Roger remarks, "Oh, so your famous husband has sunk to that, eh." Carolyn replies, "Well, it's money!" Roger sneers, "You're going defile her memory and take her book for what, a mere two, three hundred dollars?" Carolyn counters, "Quentin doesn't keep us the way he keeps you!". Roger, angered, shouts, "Get out!". Carolyn refuses, "I have s much right to be here as you do!" As they argue, Carolyn closes the double doors. When Barnabas opens them again, the room is dark and empty. Barnabas thinks to himself, "Willie married to Carolyn? Roger in love with Angelique? Quentin Collins, Master of Collinwood? What manner of world have I discovered, what?"

It is 5:00 in the afternoon of the next day. Bruno is toying with his dagger. He opens the door to the back room and orders Chris and Sabrina to come out. Bruno asks Chris, "Mr. Jennings, now that you've had time to discuss matters, are you ready to be reasonable?" Chris rushes Bruno and shouts, "Sabrina, run!", but Bruno manages to knock Chris down again. Sabrina stays put. Bruno says to Chris, "You've just answered my question". He tells Chris, "You're going to have a guest. There's going to be a certain person here at the proper hours. Get back in that room until it's time". Chris asks, "Will Sabrina be all right?" Bruno replies, "She will be if you do your part". He closes the door and locks Chris in the room then tells Sabrina, "Now, my dear, I'll find you a different place to rest. Come!".

The clock in the foyer at Collinwood reads 6:00. The phone rings. Carolyn answers. It's Bruno. She asks, "What do you want?" Bruno replies, "To see you, Carolyn". Carolyn asks, "Why?" Bruno replies, "Didn't Jeb tell you? He came to me about his problem, the shadow". Carolyn excitedly asks, "You've found a way to help him?" Bruno replies, "Not a way, a person. You've got to come down right away". Carolyn replies, "We'll be there right away", but Bruno tells her, "Not Jeb, only you". Carolyn asks, "Why?" Bruno replies, "This person doesn't like Jeb. He doesn't care what happens to Jeb. You've got to make him care". Carolyn tells him, "I'll be right there". She rushes to put on her coat. Roger, who happens to be coming down the stairs, asks, "Where are you going?". Carolyn just tells him, "Something's happened!" and rushes out.

At the house at the edge of town, Bruno shouts through the door to Chris, "Jennings! Sabrina is safe right now, but if you want her to stay that way, you'll remain quiet, even when the pains come. Not a sound from you! If you scream, Sabrina will be the one to pay!" There's a knock at the door. Bruno lets Carolyn in. He remarks, "You're early. That's good". He glances out the window and remarks, "It gets dark so early these days. The moon will be out soon". Carolyn asks, "Where is he? I want to talk to him! Is it Nicholas Blair?" Bruno replies, "No, Nicholas wouldn't help. It's someone else." He tells her, "He's in there", opens the back room door and lets her in, then quickly closes and locks the door after her. Chris, now lying on the floor in the throes of the transformation pains is shocked to see that Bruno's intended victim is Carolyn and shouts, "Carolyn! Get out! Get out!". Outside, Bruno remarks, "Jeb will have no reason to live now!" and laughs maniacally, "HA HAHAHAHAHAHAHA HA HAHAHAHAHAHAH!"

Soon night will fall over the great house at Collinwood, and Jeb Hawkes will be stalked again by the formless shadow that has been haunting him. Terrified for her husband's safety, Carolyn has responded to a telephone call from a man named Bruno, who has told her he knows a way of saving Jeb.

Carolyn tries to open the door but finds it locked. She goes back to Chris, but Chris tells her, "Oh, Carolyn! You've got to get out of here!". Carolyn replies, "I've got to do something to help you!", but Chris tells her, "There's nothing you can do. Get out!" Carolyn goes and bangs on the door, shouting, "Bruno! Open this door!". There is no reply. Carolyn shouts, "Bruno, are you still out there?" Bruno doesn't reply, muttering, "You won't be shouting much longer, my dear!" Roger come in through the front doors. Bruno asks, "What are you doing here?" Roger replies, "I saw Carolyn come in here. Where is she?" Bruno lies, "You must be mistaken". Suddenly, Roger hears a male voice from behind a door moan, "Oh no! AHHHH!!!!", followed by Carolyn's voice saying, "What's wrong, Chris?" Roger asks Bruno, "What's Carolyn doing in that room?" Bruno tells him, "I'll have to ask you to leave, Mr. Collins". Roger refuses, "I'm not leaving without Carolyn", and goes to unlock the door. Bruno grabs Roger by the shoulders and pulls him away from the door and pushes him across the room, the goes to make sure the door is still locked. While he is looking at the lock, Roger picks up a heavy lead candlestick and hits him over the head with it, knocking him out. Roger quickly unlocks the door and goes into the back room and finds Carolyn kneeling over a prostrate Chris. Carolyn tells him, "He's in pain!" Roger goes to examine Chris, but Chris begs, "Mr. Collins! You've got to get her out of here and lock the door!". Roger takes Carolyn back out into the other room and locks the door. Carolyn says, "We've got to get a doctor!" Roger, gesturing at the unconscious Bruno, tells her, "Watch this one, I'll call Julia Hoffman". Inside the room, Chris looks at his left hand and finds that it has turned into a hairy paw. Outside, Roger is grumbling, "Why doesn't someone answer this telephone?" when suddenly a loud crash comes from the other room. He and Carolyn go in and find that the window is broken and Chris is gone. Carolyn asks, "Where did he go?" Roger replies, "I don't know, but I'm going to get you out of here right away!" They leave. A few moments later, Bruno regains consciousness and goes into the back room.

Roger and Carolyn arrive back at Collinwood. Roger says, "All right. I think you'd better start explaining". Carolyn replies, "Not now, Uncle Roger!" Roger says, "I'd better have a talk with Jeb. That man is a friend of his!", but Carolyn tells him, "I don't want Jeb or mother to know what happened tonight!" Roger asks, "For Heaven's sake, why not?", but Carolyn just replies, "I can't tell you right now". Roger says, "I'd better call the police", but Carolyn begs him not to. Roger says, "I don't understand your attitude! That man might have killed you! And what did he do to poor Chris Jennings?" Carolyn begs, "Please, Uncle Roger, if someone must tell Jeb, I will". Roger reluctantly agrees, "Well, I would suggest you do it as soon as possible".

At the house at the edge of the sea, Bruno is looking at the broken window, musing, "Your respite is only temporary, Carolyn, only temporary!"

Outside, the werewolf is prowling around in the woods.

At Collinwood, Elizabeth is in the drawing room, pacing around looking unhappy. She sits down at the fireplace. Roger comes into the room and remarks, "Are you as concerned as you look?" Elizabeth just replies weakly, "Hello, Roger". Roger says, "I asked you a question!" Elizabeth asks, "Concerned about what?" Roger replies, "About Carolyn and her marriage to that strange man". Elizabeth complains, "Roger, we've been through all this!", but Roger continues, "Yes, when we first discussed this, you pretended to approve, but I could see that you were as concerned as I was. Both of us have made such mistakes in our lives. We've prayed that it would work out differently for our children..." Elizabeth asks, "But what can we do?" Roger replies, "We can start by investigating this Jeb Hawke's background, for one", but Elizabeth tells him, "That won't do any good. Whatever we found out wouldn't make any difference to Carolyn. She's in love with him. She loves him in spite of his odd behavior recently". Roger asks, "Odd behavior?" Elizabeth explains, "Someone or something seems to be frightening him, but neither he nor Carolyn will say anything about it". Just at that moment, Carolyn enters the room and asks, "Were you two are talking about me". Roger says, "As a matter of fact, we are". Carolyn says, "Whatever problems there are between Jeb and me we can work out ourselves." Roger says, "So, you admit there are problems between you and Jeb", but Carolyn replies, "I don't want to talk about it!" She turns to Elizabeth and asks, "Have you seen Jeb?" Elizabeth replies, "He's gone back to the Carriage House". Carolyn tells them she's going to go talk to Jeb, saying, "I'll be back in a little while" and leaves.

Carolyn is walking in the woods when she suddenly finds her way blocked by Bruno. He says, "Did I frighten you, Carolyn? I'm sorry if I did". Carolyn tells him, "I'm going to see Jeb and tell him about what happened at the house tonight. You'll have some explaining to do the next time he sees you!" Bruno replies, "But he's not going to see me, and you're not going to see him!" Carolyn asks, "What do you mean?" Bruno replies, "Nicholas and I have decided to get back at Jeb, and we've decided that the best way to get to him is through YOU. Without you, Jeb will have no will to live". Carolyn says, "I don't understand". Bruno replies, "You don't need to understand, because I'm going to kill you!" Carolyn cries, "You're insane!" Bruno replies, "I don't like doing it, Carolyn, but it must be done! Jeb must be punished!", grabs her by the throat and starts to strangle her. Suddenly, the werewolf comes running out from the woods, grabs Carolyn and pulls her away from Bruno. Bruno punches the werewolf. The werewolf strikes Bruno, knocking him down. Bruno screams, "No! No! Don't come near me!" The werewolf pounces...

The clock in the foyer reads 10:50. Carolyn comes bursting in through the front doors screaming, "Mother! Uncle Roger! In the woods! Bruno's being attacked by that animal! It's going to kill him!". Roger rushes out the front door. Elizabeth shouts, "Roger! Be careful", then takes Carolyn into the drawing room, saying, "Better sit down. Everything's going to be all right".

Bruno is lying in the woods, bloodied but still breathing. Roger finds him and tells him, "I'll get you a doctor", but Bruno replies, "No...It's too late...that animal...". Roger asks, "What kind of animal?". Bruno replies, "a were...a were...", but expires before he can finish the word.

In the drawing room, Roger has just finished telling Elizabeth about Bruno. Elizabeth remarks, "It must be the same animal I saw a while ago! It's not an ordinary animal, it wears human clothes and walks like a man. It was terrible". Roger says, "The police must be notified! The grounds must be searched! How's Carolyn?" Elizabeth replies, "She's been put in bed. Julia's given her a sedative. You should go to bed yourself. You look tired". Roger replies, "I am, but first there's something I must do before going to bed". Elizabeth asks, "What?" Roger replies, "Oh, just something I promised Barnabas".

Roger goes to the East Wing. He opens the doors and is surprised to find that the room is brightly lit and furnished, just as Barnabas said it would be. He tries to go in but is stopped by some invisible force. Suddenly, he sees Bruno enter the room and gasps, "Good Lord! It's impossible! I just saw him die!" He calls out, "Bruno!", but Bruno doesn't seem to hear him. Bruno looks at the portrait of Angelique and remarks, "You're still as beautiful as ever. I remember the day that portrait was painted. You were listening to the music I composed for you, music that will keep the memory of you alive forever". Elizabeth enters the room and asks, "What are you doing in here?" Bruno replies, "My dear Elizabeth, you have a way of showing up at the most inopportune times". Elizabeth asks him, "What are you doing here?". Bruno replies, "I belong here". Elizabeth counters, "You're the only one who thinks so", but Bruno says, "No, she thought so". Elizabeth warns him, "Quentin will be coming back soon. Do you really think he'll want you here?" Bruno remarks, "He's returning married, I hear. Is he in for a surprise! Do any of you think she'll ever let another woman in here?" Elizabeth grumbles, "You talk of her as if she were still alive. It's frightening!". Bruno replies, "Nothing about her was frightening! You're all just envious of he because she was the most brilliant thing ever to grace the face of the earth!" Elizabeth tells him, "I think you'd better leave now". Bruno replies, "Fortunately for you I'm not in the mood to argue. Be seeing you, dear Elizabeth" and leaves. Outside, Roger gasps, "Barnabas was right! There are people like us living lives different from ours here in this room! Barnabas wasn't imagining things! I must find Barnabas and tell him" and turns to leave. Suddenly, he hears a VERY familiar voice saying, "Was that Bruno the terrible tempered boy wonder I just saw leaving?" He turns and is shocked to see himself standing in the parallel time room talking to Elizabeth. Elizabeth replies to parallel Roger, "Yes. He's come back". Parallel Roger asks, "Why? To compose more of that morbid music of his? To tell more of his memories of her? Well, we'll see the look on Quentin's face with he finds sees him, won't we?" and laughs uproariously. Real time Roger stands outside, speechless...

On this night, one of the inhabitants of Collinwood has seen the most incredible sight of his life. Roger Collins has looked into a room in the deserted East Wing, and seen for himself what Barnabas has told him about. A separate existence in a separate time band. In it, the inhabitants of the great house seem to be carrying on lives completely different and apart from those in this existence. He saw Elizabeth and Bruno, the Bruno who in this existence died only a few hours before. And in this room, on this night, Roger has seen someone who shocked him even more.

Roger has gone and is bringing Barnabas back with him. Roger tells Barnabas, "I just couldn't believe it! You just don't know what it's like to see yourself!" They get to the room and look inside...

Inside the room, PT Roger is still laughing. Finally, stops and says, "It's too much! It's really too much! Oh, I needed that laugh! It'll help me get through the rest of the day!" Elizabeth grumbles, "I don't find it the least bit amusing". Roger replies, "Oh, don't you? The idea of them being met by Bruno! Perhaps he will 'entertain' her when Quentin is busy". Elizabeth angrily growls, "I don't find THAT amusing either!". Roger says, "I just mean that Bruno is a brilliant pianist. Maybe that's why Angelique sent for him". Elizabeth replies, "Angelique is dead! She can't send for anyone!". Chris walks into the room and says to Elizabeth, "You sent for me?" Elizabeth replies, "Yes. Bruno is back." Chris replies, "Yes, I've heard". Elizabeth continues, "You manage the estate. There must be some way of preventing Bruno from moving into the cottage?". Chris remarks, "I thought he was just coming through". Elizabeth replies, "No, he plans to stay in the cottage. He says he belongs here". Chris growls, "He's never belonged here!" Elizabeth says, "Then you must do something to stop him from moving into the cottage". Chris replies, "Of course!" Roger again laughs, saying, "It's amusing seeing you two plotting to protect Quentin from Big Bad Bruno and the others! It's all so useless!" Chris says, "Quentin is bring the new Mrs. Collins back with him". Roger sneers, "New Mrs. Collins!". He looks at the portrait and says, "Don't you know that Mrs. Collins never left? Not for a minute! Now if you'll excuse me!". Our-time Roger and Barnabas look on in shock as PT-Roger starts walking towards them, obviously to come out that door. Our-time Roger exclaims, "MY GOD!" as PT Roger approaches, but PT Roger and parallel time suddenly vanish just as PT Roger gets to the door. Out time Roger gasps, "I've just had the most incredible experience in my life! Can you imagine what it's like seeing a stranger with your face and your voice and yet be so different?" Barnabas reminds him, "In that other different life". Roger agrees, "Yes, in parallel time". Barnabas remarks, "Stokes said it was only a theory". Roger points out the obvious, "This proves it's more than just a theory. We're all in it, me, Elizabeth, Bruno, Carolyn, Willie, Chris, Julia, Quentin". Barnabas remarks, "No, Roger, now quite all of us". Roger agrees, "You've never seen yourself in it, have you?" Barnabas replies, "No. The original Barnabas, the one who died in 1830 is obviously part of that time, but not the Barnabas you know". He pauses for a long time. Roger asks, "Barnabas, what's the matter? You seem so far away" Barnabas replies, "Somehow I feel drawn to this room, as if it were waiting for me." Roger points out, "You can't expect to get in. The barrier...", but Barnabas says, "Barriers have a way of being broken!" Roger warns him, "Whatever you plan to do, be careful. Think carefully". Barnabas says, "Someone wants me in this time band. I must go. Are you going?" Roger replies, "Not yet". Barnabas leaves. Roger thinks, "Somewhere, there's another Roger Collins, living and loving, doing things I know nothing about!"

Later at the old house, Julia is giving an anti-vampire injection to Barnabas. She tells him, "Barnabas, there's something I've got to tell you. You became immune to the original formula, so I've been giving you a new one, but this is the last injection I can give you. You've reached the saturation point. Even one more injection may kill you". Barnabas asks, "You mean I can't be cured?" Julia replies, "We won't know till dawn. That'll be in 16 minutes". Suddenly, Barnabas doubles over in pain. Julia asks, "Barnabas! What's wrong?" Barnabas replies, "I don't know! But something's very wrong!"

A few minutes later, Julia asks, "How do you feel now?" Barnabas replies, "I can't describe it. I've never felt this way before in my life. I'm not cured, that I can tell you. Help me downstairs". Julia helps a weak looking Barnabas down into his coffin.

Sabrina is waiting at the cottage. Chris finally returns. Chris exclaims, "Sabrina! You're free! You're all right!". Sabrina replies, "I'm all right, but Bruno's dead". Chris starts to asks, "How did it happen?", but then interrupts himself, "No, you don't have to tell me. Now I know whose blood this is all over my clothes". Sabrina tries to tell him not to feel guilty, that if he had not killed Bruno, Bruno would have continued plotting against them and perhaps killed her. She tells him, "After Bruno died, the police came to the house and found Sky Rumson and me. They asked me what happened, but I just lied that Bruno was insane". She continues, "Now that Bruno's no longer a threat, we can start planning again". Chris moans, "Plans are for people with futures! We don't". Sabrina points out, "We do have a future. Bruno's dead. We don't have anything to worry about". Chris replies, "Except each other" and leaves, looking angry that she's broached the subject again. There's a knock at the door. It's Roger Collins. He asks, "Is Chris here?" Sabrina replies that he is. Roger asks, "Is he all right?" Sabrina replies, "He had a bad night". Chris comes back out. Roger tells him he'd like to speak to him alone. Sabrina leaves. Roger remarks, "You look much better. How do you feel?" Chris replies, "All right". Roger continues, "I feel guilty about not getting you some medical attention, but somehow you had gotten up and left". He asks Chris if he remember what happened, but Chris replies that he doesn't remember a thing. He asks, "Do you know why Carolyn happened to be there?" Once again Chris lies that he doesn't, "I can't help you there, and Bruno can't say anything". Roger remarks, "So you've heard what's happened to Bruno? He's was killed by an animal, an unnatural animal". Chris replies, "Yes. Sabrina told me". Roger remarks, "You know, I have the feeling I'm going to get to the bottom of all this, perplexing as it may seem." After Roger leaves, Sabrina returns. Chris says to Sabrina, "That man knows something!", but Sabrina assures that that can't be the case, that if Roger did know something, he'd evict him from Collinwood. Chris dejectedly continues, "Eventually someone will find out, someone who will go to the police". Sabrina again broaches the subject of marriage, saying she would be able to protect him, "When the moon is full, we could have a room where keep you chained". Chris laughs, "Mr. and Mrs. Chris Jennings, happily living in their vine-covered jail! No, Sabrina, marriage is out of the question."

It is dusk. At the Old House, Julia is worried about Barnabas, "What happened go Barnabas after that last injection? Will he be all right when he rises? Will he rise at all, or have I done something to destroy him?" She hears the cellar door open. Barnabas comes into the room. Julia asks him, "How are you feeling now?" Barnbas replies, "I've never felt the need for blood so much in my life! Julia, I'm afraid I'll be out of control! You must do something at once! I've never felt so much a creature of the night before! I may end up destroying, or being destroyed!"

Julia and Roger are in the parallel time room. Roger is saying, "I must admit I didn't believe Barnabas at first, but now I have no choice but to believe. You can't imagine what it's like to see yourself in another time band!" He notices that Julia doesn't seem to be listening to him and asks her what's wrong, but before she and answer, they are interrupted by Elizabeth, suddenly coming into the room and saying, "What are you two doing here? I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw the light in the East Wing." Roger replies, rather weakly, "Oh, we were just looking around". Elizabeth protests, "But there's nothing interesting to see here, or is there? Suddenly, everyone is so interested in the East Wing, and I want to know what the reason is!". Roger replies, "I'll tell you, Liz, but before I do, I think I should warn you that this is going to stun you as it did me...!".

Barnabas is pacing around at the Old House in vampire agony. He thinks to himself, "I can't stay here! I must do something! I must go to the docks, or anywhere!" There's a knock at the front door. Barnabas peeks out the window and sees that it's Sabrina. He gasps, "I can't let her in! If she doesn't see me, maybe she'll go away", but Sabrina continues to knock and call out, "Barnabas! Barnabas!", then opens the door and comes in. She calls out, "Barnabas, where are you?", then remarks, "I'm sure I saw him at that window". Meanwhile, Barnabas is hiding behind the door to the left of the fireplace. Finally, he can stand it no longer and comes out. Sabrina says, "Oh, you startled me! I want to talk to you about Chris. You're the only one I can talk to about this. Barnabas, I want to marry Chris. I love Chris the way he is, no matter what he is, no matter how he has to live..." Barnabas thinks to himself, "No matter what he is... no matter what I am, I must do what I must.." bares his fangs and bites her...

Later, a dazed looking Sabrina returns to the cottage. Chris asks, "Sabrina, I've been worried about you!" Sabrina replies, "I went for a walk. I wanted to think...", then collapses in his arms. Chris sits her down in a chair, then gasps, "Oh My God!" as he sees two puncture marks on her throat...

Lisa Richards as Sabrina Stuart

A strange, disquieting night on the great estate of Collinwood. For Julia's injections have failed to cure Barnabas and free him of his curse. Instead he feels the need for blood more strongly than ever before. And fight it though he does, the lust is too strong for him, as one woman, seeking his help, found out.

Chris asks, "Sabrina, what happened?" But Sabrina can only answer weakly, "Get Julia Hoffman...She'll know what to do". Chris telephones Collinwood. Quentin answers the phone in the drawing room. Chris asks, "Is Dr. Hoffman there?" Quentin replies, "No, she went into town a few minutes ago. Is something wrong?" Chris replies, "Something's happened to Sabrina". Quentin tells him, "I'll be right down!"

Barnabas is looking out the front door of the Old House, looking very sad and guilty, thinking to himself, "Will I ever be able to erase this night from my mind? I must get a hold of myself! I must not leave this house tonight, not until this insane urge ends! He goes back into the front room and is about to light a candle when suddenly a voice calls out, "Don't light it! Please! Don't make me see it!". Barnabas looks and sees Jeb Hawkes sitting in a chair. He asks, "See what?" Jeb replies, "It keeps growing and growing! That shadow on the wall!" and looks over towards a wall. Barnabas looks and is astonished to see the large shadow by the light of the match. Jeb continues, "It's going to kill me, just like she said it would!" Barnabas asks, "Who said it would?", but Jeb, nearly hysterical, just continues, "She made a paper cut out and put it on my heart!". Barnabas again tries, "Who did this to you?", but Jeb just keeps prattling on, "Carolyn said to come to you. She doesn't know what I did to you. You've got to help me, Barnabas, you've got to!"

Angelique shows up at Nicholas' house, wearing a sexy black sleeveless dress. Nicholas remarks, "Black becomes you, my dear". Angelique replies, "I thought it would suit the occasion. You are in mourning for Bruno, aren't you? And Phillip, and Megan Todd. I wonder what your master thinks of your complete failure this time". Nicholas, irked, replies, "I haven't failed completely as long as I have one follower, and I do. I have someone who's completely loyal to me - your husband Sky". Nicholas happily notices by the look on her eyes that he managed to hurt her. He taunts her, saying she's been following the same pattern ever since making Barnabas into a vampire. She counters that he too, follows a pattern, that his plans always fail and he is consigned back to hell until he can think of another plan to amuse his master. He counters that she's gotten nowhere in the last 200 years, that she's still where she was then, loving and being rejected by Barnabas. Seeing the anger in her eyes, he remarks, "You have such hard eyes!"

Quentin arrives at the cottage. Chris is explaining to him, "I don't know what happened. She must have been attacked in the woods by some kind of animal. She's very weak". He shows Quentin the marks on Sabrina's neck. Seeing the strange expression on Quentin's face, Chris asks, "You know what made them, don't you? You know what happened to her, don't you?" Quentin lies, "How would I know what did that?" Chris replies, "When you saw them, your whole attitude changed, as if you knew what they meant". Quentin denies that he does. He tells Chris, "You stay here and watch over her. Keep trying to contact Julia. I'll go to Collinwood and warn them to stay out of the woods". Chris points out, "I haven't called the police yet". Quentin tells him, "Keep trying to find Julia. I'll all the police" and leaves.

At the Old House, Jeb is still pleading with Barnabas, "I know I don't mean much to you, but I love Carolyn and she loves me. Please, Barnabas, speak to Angelique!". Barnabas replies, "Angelique does not give favors". Jeb begs, "Please, try going to her!". They are interrupted by Quentin coming into the front doors. He tells Barnabas, "I've got to talk to you!". Barnabas tells Jeb, "Excuse us, please. I'll see Angelique tonight". Jeb says, "Thank You, Barnabas! Thank You!" and leaves. Barnabas explains to Quentin that Angelique has put a curse on Jeb that will kill him and has asked him to intercede with Angelique. Quentin is not very sympathetic. He the tells Barnabas, "I've seen Sabrina". Barnabas turns in shame and says, "And you don't think I hate myself for doing it?" Quentin continues, "You're Chris' friend. One minute you're helping him, then the next you..." Barnabas whines, "Don't make me hate myself more! She came here! I couldn't help myself!" Quentin tells him, "You've got to leave her alone." Barnabas tells him, "Those injections Julia's been giving me, they've failed. I'm worse than I've ever been before. If I had a gun with silver bullets I'd give it to you and force you to use it". Quentin says, "Julia must be able to do something!". Barnabas replies sadly, "No". Quentin starts to feel bad and says, "I'm sorry. I know what it is to be under power of a force you can't control. Forgive me". Barnabas replies, "Quentin, you're right. I must stop this." He asks Quentin to stay with him all night to prevent him from finding any more victims. Quentin agrees to do so. Barnabas tells him, "Now I must contact Angelique". Quentin, in disbelief, asks, "You're not going to help him, are you?!" Barnabas replies, "He saved Carolyn. I must help him". Quentin remarks, "I'd never thought we'd end up helping Jeb Hawkes". Barnabas starts calling to Angelique, "Angelique! Come to me this night! Come to me!"

Chris is still making phone calls trying to find Julia with no luck. He tells Sabrina, "I'll call another doctor", but Sabrina says, "No!" Chris asks, "Why not?" Sabrina replies, "Julia's a friend." Chris asks, "Do you love me?" Sabrina replies, "Yes". Chris then says, "If you do, then tell me, what happened to you?"

Angelique is now at the Old House saying, "Help Carolyn? Why should I help Carolyn? Why should SHE have love?" Barnabas replies, "Jeb's not responsible for Sky Rumson". Angelique asks, "Then who is?" Barnabas replies, "Nicholas Blair. From the depths of hell, he planned this. You owe an apology to Jeb. He's the one who told you about Sky. If he hadn't told you, you wouldn't have known the truth until it was too late". Angelique announces, "I will see Jeb Hawkes. Here, alone. What happens depends on him. Bring him here!".

Having brought Jeb to the Old House and left him there alone with Angelique as she instructed, Barnabas and Quentin pass the time by going to Collinwood. Barnabas takes Quentin to the East Wing. Quentin gripes, "Why come here? I could've had a couple of drinks downstairs by now while we wait for Jeb and Angelique". They arrive outside the Parallel Time room. Barnabas tells Quentin, "I have something to show you. Do you have any idea what lies beyond those doors?" Quentin quips, "An empty room?" Barnabas tells him, "Open the doors, Quentin". Quentin does so. The room is brightly lit and furnished. Quentin gasps, "Someone lives here!" Barnabas gestures inside and says, "Look, Quentin". Quentin sees the photograph and remarks, "A picture of me and David". He tries to go in but cannot. Barnabas explains, "You can't go in". Quentin asks, "WHAT is it?" Just then, inside the room, an man enters by another door. It looks like Jeb Hawkes, but he's wearing a suit and tie, has wire rimmed glasses on and is strangely meek looking. Quentin gasps, "But Jeb's at the Old House!". He calls out, "Jeb!", but the man does not respond. The man searches around the room for something. Finally, he finds what he's looking for, an address book in a drawer in the nightstand. He starts leafing through it. Chris Jennings comes into the room and asks, "Looking for something, Doctor?" "Jeb", in an uncharictically meek voice, stutters, "Actually, I...I...found it". Chris remarks, "Her address book". "Jeb" tries to explain, "You see, just before she died, she gave me the address of a chemist in Boston." Chris says, "You should have written it down". Jeb stutters, "I... did, but I misplace the paper". Chris growls, "Surely you don't expect me to believe that!" Jeb continues, "I'm not lying. It's important I get in touch with this chemist." Chris, dubious, asks, "Why? Does he have some chemicals you can't get in Bangor? I have instructions nothing is to be removed from this room from Julia Collins!" "Jeb" meekly replies, "Well, I guess I'll have to do without, then. Sorry to have bothered you" and leaves. Chris puts the address book back into the nightstand drawer, then goes and closes the doors in Barnabas and Quentin's faces. Quentin gasps, "Now what was that?" Barnabas says, "Look, Quentin" and opens the doors. The room is now dark and empty. Quentin exclaims, "That's incredible!" Barnabas explains, "Yes, Quentin, you have just seen parallel time".

Angelique and Jeb are at the Old House the darkened front room, with only the feeble light of the fire. Angelique quips, "Isn't it pleasant, just the two of us, here in the dark, just as if we were lovers?" Jeb replies, "Yes, but it's waiting for me, waiting for the least bit of light!" Angelique remarks, "Barnbas says you're in love with Carolyn. I'm a great believer in love." Jeb begs, "Please! Take this shadow off me!", but Angelique replies, "I can't. It must kill". Jeb whines, "You must be able to do something!". Angelique replies, "No, I can't. But YOU can - if you're willing. Do you still have that paper cutout I put on your heart?" Jeb replies, "Yes". Angelique explains, "All you have to do is place it on the heart of another". Jeb moans, "I can't kill anyone anymore!". Angelique remarks, "My, how you've changed. Don't you have any enemies at all? I have one. Nicholas Blair. He knows about the shadow, all about it. Shall I tell you what to do?" Jeb replies, "Yes, tell me! Tell me!".

Chris is talking on the telephone. He has finally found someone at the hospital who knows where Julia is and is saying, "I don't care if she's in consultation! This is important!", but the person refuses to interrupt Julia. Chris dejectedly leaves a message for Julia to call back. Chris suggests to Sabrina that he take her to the hospital, but she refuses. Chris decides to go to the hospital to get Julia himself.

At the Old House, Barnabas is alone battling his vampire urges. (What happened to Quentin, who promised to stay with him all night, is not explained). Barnabas looks at the mantel clock and notes, "Four hours till dawn. I must not go out! I must stay here! I must think of other things! Jeb, Angelique! Will she really help?" Sabrina comes in and calls, "Barnabas!". Barnabas, shocked to see her, shouts, "Get out!", but Sabrina says, "You need me!" and comes towards him. Barnabas counters, "I don't!", but Sabrina insists, "Yes you do! Don't lie!" and keeps approaching. Barnabas shouts, "No!", but Sabrina goes up to him and says, "You want me, Barnabas, that's all I want! You need me!". Barnabas can no longer resist and bites her...

Nicholas is pouring himself a sherry. He grumbles to himself, "If I had all my powers, there would be no Angelique now! She came here to taunt me, yes, taunt me!" Outside, Jeb takes the cutout out of his pocket, checks it, then puts it back in his pocket. He knocks. Nicholas asks, "Who is it?" Jeb replies, "Jeb", and goes in. Jeb remarks, "Never thought we'd meet again, huh?" Nicholas replies, "I had hoped that would be true". Jeb says, "Too much has been left undone. We must talk, maybe for the last time!"

A dark night. A figure moves through the silent forest on the estate of Collinwood, a man on a desperate mission. For to save himself, Jeb Hawkes must turn the shadow onto the devil's emissary, Nicholas Blair, and Angelique has warned Jeb what a dangerous move this is. Nicholas is very aware of the shadow and what it means, and so Jeb must trick him into accepting him.

Nicholas says, "For the last time? That sounds ominous". Jeb replies, "I didn't mean it to be. Nicholas, I was wrong to do what I did, destroy the cairn". Nicholas agrees, "You could have had the world! Why did you come here?" Jeb replies, "To see if you could help me. Could you do something about the Shadow?" Nicholas replies, "Why? And let you live the life of a country gentleman?" Jeb replies, "I'll live any kind of life you want me to". Nicholas remarks, "I trusted you once, I'm not going to trust you again". Jeb insists, "You can trust me now". Nicholas asks, "Can I?" Jeb continues, "I know we can't go back to what we were before, but you've got to have some use for me". Nicholas replies, "Very possibly I do! Yes! Perhaps you CAN do something, something to my advantage. Will you do anything I ask you to?" Jeb asks, "Can you make the shadow disappear?" Nicholas replies, "The only way is to turn it on someone else, and there is someone, someone who's interfered with my plans constantly." He says they are allies again, and pours two drinks to celebrate, toasting, "To new and better projects!" After they drink, Nicholas asks, "Now, do you still have the paper cutout Angelique placed on your heart?" Jeb lies, "Yes, it's at Collinwood". Nicholas continues, "It must be turned against her. It will be a difficult thing to do". He takes out a shiny cigarette case and shine it in Jeb's eyes. Jeb asks, "What are you doing to me?" Nicholas replies, "I thought you were more clever than you are. Did you really think you could come back? You will see your death, and Carolyn's! You came here to kill me, but I am going to kill you!". Suddenly, Jeb pulls the cutout out of his pocket and slaps it on Nicholas' chest. Nicholas screams, "NO!!!!!". Jeb runs out the door. Sky Rumson comes into the room to see what's happening, just in time to see the shadow appear on the wall, engulf and kill Nicholas.

In the drawing room of Collinwood, Roger once again tries to get Carolyn to tell him what's wrong, but she just tells him that whatever the problem is, it's for her and Jeb to solve. Then, she despairingly hugs Roger and moans, "But how? How?"

Jeb goes back into the room to see what happened. Sky growls, "You had to make sure he was dead, didn't you? He is, but you won't get away with it! He's not human! He'll be back!". Jeb leaves, satisfied. Sky sees Nicholas' ghost rise from his body and stand up. The ghost tells him, "You are alone, now, Sky, all alone. But I will help you! You must avenge this! Jeb Hawkes must die!" Sky nods and replies, "I'll do anything you want". The Ghost of Nicholas continues, "You are the only one left. It's up to you". He tells Sky he will help him, "I still have some powers! I will use them!"

Jeb returns to Collinwood. He turns on the lights in the foyer and looks around carefully, a nervous look on his face. He then goes into the drawing room, turns on the lights and looks around in there. Satisfied that the shadow has indeed gone, he goes out into the foyer and exuberantly calls, "Carolyn! Carolyn! Carolyn!" Carolyn comes running down the stair into the foyer asking, "What's wrong?" Jeb replies, "It's all over! It's all over!", embraces her, then says, "It's all over!" again. He tells her, "We're free!" Carolyn asks, "What happened?" Jeb replies, "I had to turn it on Nicholas Blair." Carolyn asks, "He's dead?" Jeb replies, "I had to do it. He was trying to hypnotize me, he was going to kill me, so I took the shadow out and placed it on his heart. He screamed, and I ran off. I didn't even see the shadow. It's over! It's all over!" He apologizes to Carolyn for all the trouble he's put her through, and promises to make her happy. He tells her, "We've got to go away for awhile. Right away". Carolyn asks, "Right away? Where?" Jeb replies, "Any place, just away from here". Carolyn worries, "Will we find a place? Is there anyone else who hates you as much as Nicholas Blair?" Jeb assures her there isn't. Carolyn wonders, "Why did Nicholas Blair hate you so much anyway?" Jeb replies, "That's all in the past. Let's not talk about it. Let's go away tonight." Carolyn asks, "Tonight? We can't. I've got to talk to Mother". Jeb reluctantly says, "All right, tomorrow morning then". Carolyn goes to tell Elizabeth. Jeb thinks to himself, "Nothing must happen now, nothing!" He goes into the drawing room and sits in an armchair. Suddenly, he hears a voice saying, "You will never leave here, Jeb, never! The dead will not let you!" David comes into the room and asks, "Is my father here?" Jeb replies, "No", and starts for the front doors. David asks, "Where are you going?" Jeb replies, "To the Carriage House to get some camera equipment". David asks, "Why don't you wait till morning?" Jeb replies, "Carolyn and I are leaving on a trip tonight!" and leaves.

Roger is outside parallel time room pondering what it all means, "Somehow we must discover the secret of this room. Is Barnabas right? Is there a parallel time? Do we all live different lives in another time band?" He opens the doors and sees David standing there and exclaims, "David!", but David doesn't hear. David is looking at the portrait of Angelique and saying, "Why did you go away? It's been so long. Please come back. You said, 'Whatever happens, Daniel, I'll be back'". Carolyn comes into the room and says, "So, this is where you've been hiding. If I were Quentin, I'd keep this room locked up". Daniel replies, "My father would never do that! She'll be back!". Carolyn tells him, "The dead don't come back. When your father returns, you're going to have a new mother". Daniel shouts, "Don't say that! Don't ever say that! I won't have another mother! I won't". Carolyn reprimands him, "Quiet! Do you want the servants to hear?", and goes and closes the doors. When Roger opens the doors again, he finds the room dark and empty. He gasps, "He's exactly like my son, except he's called Daniel and he's the son of Quentin and Angelique! When will we know what this means, when?"

David is playing solitaire at the desk in the drawing room. Carolyn comes into the room and asks, "Where's Jeb?" David replies, "He went to get some camera equipment. He said you were leaving tonight". Carolyn asks, "Tonight? You must have heard wrong". David tells her, "I wish you wouldn't go away, Carolyn. I hope you're not going to be gone forever". Carolyn replies, "No, this will always be my home". David remarks, "When I grow up, I'm going to where the action is!". Roger, who's just stepped into the room, says, "I'll tell you where the action should be - in your room! It's way past your bedtime". David tells him, "Carolyn's going away". Carolyn tells Roger, "Everything's all right now. It's all over". David asks, "What's all over?", but Carolyn doesn't say. David hugs her and says, "I'm afraid I'll never see you again". Carolyn assures him that that's not the case and says, "I bet I'm still here tomorrow morning". After Roger and David leave, Carolyn goes and sits in a chair. The foyer clock reads 10:05. The foyer clock now reads 11:39. Carolyn starts to dream...

In the dream, she hears a voice laughing softly, "He he he... He he he...Carolyn! Carolyn Hawkes! The former Carolyn Stoddard! Mrs. Jeb Hawkes! Widow's Hill! That is where it will end, Carolyn, Widow's Hill! Would you like to see how it will happen?..." Carolyn gets a vision of Jeb at Widow's Hill calling, "Carolyn! Carolyn! Carolyn!" He hears the rustle of leaves and looks back. It's Sky Rumson. Rumson says, "You killed Nicholas Blair!" Jeb replies, "You're as free of him as I am. You can go back to your old life now". Sky starts advancing on him. Jeb shouts, "I'm not your enemy, Sky!" Sky attacks him. They struggle. Sky throws Jeb off the cliff. Jeb falls to his death, screaming all the way.

Carolyn awakens, calling, "Jeb!". David, who's back, says, "Carolyn! What's the matter?" Carolyn replies, "Go back to bed". She heads for door under the stairs. David asks, "Where are you going?" Carolyn replies, "Widow's Hill!". David asks, "Why are you going the back way?" Carolyn replies, "Faster!" and leaves.

Jeb returns to Collinwood with his photographic equipment. He is surprised to find David sitting on the stair and asks, "What are you doing here?" David replies, "Waiting for you." Jeb asks, "Where's Carolyn?" David replies, "She went to Widow's Hill". Jeb is shocked.

Carolyn arrives at Widow's Hill and calls, "Jeb! Jeb!", but finds that Jeb is not there. She thinks to herself, "How silly I am! It was just a dream. Jeb's not here!". She hears a sound and turns around. It's Sky Rumson. He tells her, "Yes, I'm here even if Jeb isn't. You see, Nicholas didn't show you everything in your dream. He spared your feelings. He didn't want you to see your own death". Carolyn tries to flee, but Sky grabs her, says, "Mrs. Hawkes, there is no escape!" and starts to strangle her...

A terrible atmosphere of impending doom hangs over the great house at Collinwood. On this night, Carolyn Stoddard Hawkes has had a frightening dream, in which she witnessed the death of her husband Jeb on Widows' Hill. Believing the dream to be an omen of tragedy, Carolyn has left Collinwood and gone to Widows' Hill.

Sky is strangling Carolyn. Suddenly, Jeb shows up and shouts, "Let her go!". Sky lets Carolyn go, grabs Jeb and throws him off the cliff. Carolyn screams, "What have you done??? What have you done????"

In the drawing room of Collinwood, Barnabas is pacing around, looking very nervous. Finally, Julia comes in through the front doors carrying her medical bag. She comes into the drawing room and tells Barnabas, "I've just been to the cottage. I've seen Sabrina. She's very weak, Barnabas". Barnabas says, "I'm sorry, Julia". Julia asks, "Barnabas, why did you do it? Quentin told me you gave him your word that you wouldn't go out". Barnabas replies, "I didn't. I stayed at the Old House fighting the urge, but she came". Julia interrupts, "And you couldn't help yourself". Barnabas asks, "Do you think I did this by choice?" Julia blames herself, "It must be the new injections. Until the effects wear off, you're in danger of exposure." Barnabas notes, "And you're afraid I'll kill Sabrina before the effects wear off". Julia remarks, "There must be something I can do to control the urges". Barnabas tells her, "For the last hour, I've been thinking of that room in the East Wing". Julia asks, "Why?" Barnabas replies, "If only I could transcend the time warp and get to the other time band". Julia asks, "How would that help?" Barnabas replies, "It might be a way of saving Sabrina. It's just possible that in that time band I would be quite normal, not as I am now". Julia again warns him, "Transcending the time warp could be dangerous! You could be trapped there!". Barnabas replies, "And who's to say that might not be a good thing?" Julia tells him, "You belong with us here in this time band!". Suddenly, Carolyn comes bursting in through the front doors screaming, "There was nothing I could do! It all happened so quickly!" Barnabas and Julia rush out to her. Julia asks, "What happened so quickly?" Elizabeth comes running into the foyer. Carolyn embraces her and wails, "Jeb is dead! He's dead!"

They take Carolyn into the drawing room and put her on the sofa. Elizabeth asks, "Carolyn, please tell us what happened". Carolyn starts babbling incoherently. Julia says, "I'd better give her a sedative". Carolyn shouts, "I don't want a sedative, I want Jeb!". She recounts what happened, how she had the dream and went to Widow's Hill only to find not Jeb, but Sky there waiting for her, how Sky tried to kill her, how Jeb came and saved her, only to be thrown off the cliff by Sky. Barnabas, an angry look on his face, quietly walks away. Carolyn finishes her story, "Jeb is gone! He's gone!", then falls asleep. Elizabeth remarks, "I don't understand any of it. Why would Sky Rumson want to kill Jeb?" Julia lies, "I don't know", then adds, "But Carolyn did see him kill Jeb, and she'll be in danger as long as he's free". Elizabeth, alarmed, says, "I'd better call the police" and goes out to the phone in the foyer to do so. Julia comes out and asks, "Elizabeth, did you see Barnabas leave?" Elizabeth replies, "No, I didn't". Julia remarks, "I didn't either. I wonder where he could have gone?'

At Nicholas Blair's house, Sky Rumson closes and locks the door, then nervously checks out the window. He then quickly throws a few things in a suitcase, closes it, then turns to leave - only to find Barnabas there blocking his way. Shocked, he asks, "How did you get into this house?" Barnabas replies, "I can do many things ordinary people can't do. They didn't tell you about me, did they? Well, they never did confide in you". Sky tries to go past, saying, "Look, I've got to get going". Barnabas asks, "What's the hurry, Mr. Rumson?" Sky replies, "I have important business in Boston". Barnabas tells him, "I have only one question. Surely you have time for that". Sky replies, "All right." Barnabas asks, "Did you kill Jeb Hawkes?" Sky just stands there. Barnabas says, "Well, answer me, Mr. Rumson!" Finally, Sky asks, "Why do you care about Jeb Hawkes?" Barnabas replies, "I care about Carolyn, and I see what his death did to her". Sky says, "He would have died anyway! He should have died the moment he destroyed the box and the shrine". Barnabas points out, "But he didn't, and he married Carolyn, and made her very happy. You're not going to leave this room..." Sky tries to explain, "Nicholas! Nicholas Blair made me do it! He said it was my duty!". Barnabas replies, "And what I am about to do is MY duty. You're not going to leave this room alive!" and starts to approach him. Sky backs up and shouts, "Stay away from me!" Barnabas remarks, "Don't let me frighten you. You wouldn't have gotten away even if I hadn't come. There's someone else who has a score to settle with you, Angelique! I'm almost sorry I didn't give her the pleasure of killing you". Sky shouts, "Nicholas! You promised to help me! You've go to help me!", but nothing happens. Barnabas tells him, "Even if Nicholas did come, he has not power over me!" Sky makes a break for it and rushes over to a bureau, opens the top drawer, and pulls out a silver plated revolver. With a tone of triumph in his voice, he tells Barnabas, "I'm going to leave and you're not going to stop me!"...but Barnabas starts walking towards him. Sky orders, "Stop! Or I'll shoot!", but Barnabas keeps coming. Sky shoots him twice. Barnabas is unfazed. Sky gasps, "What?! What?!" Barnabas asks, "Why has no one ever told you about me?" He remarks, "I'm glad you have that pistol. It will save me from having to kill you myself". He grabs Sky's gun hand and starts to turn it back to Sky. Sky begs, "Barnabas, please!", but Barnabas just replies, "There will be pain, but it will all be over in a moment", turns the gun to point at Sky's chest, then pushes on his trigger finger. The gun fires and Sky collapses to the floor, dead.

Later, Elizabeth is answering a telephone call at Collinwood. Barnabas and Julia are with her. When Elizabeth finishes the call, she tells them, "The police couldn't find Jeb's body. They've searched the entire area below Widow's Hill and didn't find anything." Julia asks, "Couldn't the body have washed out to sea?" Elizabeth replies, "That's the conclusion they came to". She continues, "They did find Sky Rumson. He was found dead with a pistol in his hand. They're listing it as a possible suicide". Barnabas asks, "Possible suicide?" Elizabeth explains, "The sheriff said there was one thing that puzzled him. Sky was killed with a single gunshot, yet three bullets had been fired from the gun. I don't understand it". Barnabas replies, "Maybe we shouldn't try. The man was insane". Elizabeth remarks, "I'm not concerned about that, I'm more concerned about Carolyn" and leaves. Julia asks Barnabas, "You never did say where you were going earlier. You went to find Sky Rumson, didn't you, and you found him". Barnabas is evasive, "I'm sure the police will list this in time as a definite suicide". Julia starts to say, "I'm not condemning you, Barnabas..." when she suddenly notices a change in his expression. She asks, "What's wrong?" Barnabas replies, "You'd better go to Elizabeth and Carolyn". Julia asks, "Is it's starting again?" Barnabas replies, "Yes, the urge is overwhelming. I can't control it. I can't stay here! The room in the East Wing, maybe that's the answer, maybe that's a means of escape!" and starts running up the stairs. Julia shouts, "Barnabas! Wait! Wait!" and runs up after him.

Carolyn is asleep on the couch. Elizabeth lovingly puts a blanket over her. Carolyn starts to dream...

Carolyn is at Widow's Hill. She hears Jeb's voice calling, "Carolyn! Where are you? I must see you one more time!". Jeb appears in front of her. Carolyn exclaims, "You've come back!" Jeb replies, "To tell you something. Then I must go". Carolyn starts to approach him, but he tells her to stop, saying, "Don't come closer. I'm not real". He tells her, "Listen to me, Carolyn, I want you to know how much I love you. I couldn't die without telling you. Someday we're going to meet again. You'll know it and I'll know it, and it will be different. I must go now. We will meet again!", and throws himself off the cliff.

Carolyn, still asleep, calls out, "Jeb! Jeb!". Elizabeth watches over her, looking very concerned.

Barnabas arrives in the parallel time room. He asks himself, "Why do I feel I belong in that other time?" He takes the Loomis book out from under his cloak and continues, "Could it be this, because my life was so different there?" He hears Julia shouting, "Barnabas, please! I've got to talk to you!". Barnabas puts his hand over his eyes and sighs, "Julia! She shouldn't have followed me". He takes his hand away and starts to says, "Julia, go back!" when he suddenly notices that the room is brightly lit and furnished. He is in parallel time. He calls out, "It's happened! It's happened! Julia, can you hear me?" Outside the room, Julia replies, "Yes, Barnabas!", but Barnabas keeps on calling, "Julia, can you hear me?" Julia says, "He can't hear me! He's in that room and he can't hear me! He may be trapped in there forever!". Barnabas, who cannot neither see or hear Julia, asks himself, "How did it happen? How did this room appear? What am I going to do now?" Suddenly, he hears a stern voice behind him say, "Who are you?" He turns and sees that it is parallel time Carolyn. She asks, "And what are you doing here?"

A night of tragedy on the great estate of Collinwood. For Jeb has died, and Barnabas has revenged his death. Barnabas, still facing his overwhelming lust for blood, turns to the one sanctuary he can find. The mysterious room in the East Wing, and promise of Parallel Time.

Barnabas exclaims, "Carolyn!" Carolyn asks, "How do you know my name?" Barnabas replies, "I'm Barnabas Collins". Carolyn says, "Then you've been dead for 200 years". Barnabas lies, "I'm his descendent. There's a portrait of him in the great hall". Carolyn replies, "There's no portrait of anyone in the great hall". Barnabas tries a different tactic. He shows her the book and says, "I found this in the hallway. There's a sketch of him in this book". Carolyn asks, "Does Julia Hoffman know you're here?" Barnabas replies, "No one knows I'm here". Carolyn says, "Soon, everyone will!" Barnabas begs, "Look at this book!", but Carolyn shouts, "Stay away! I don't trust you!". Barnabas, his attempts to convince Carolyn he's a descendent of the "original" Barnabas having failed, bites her...

Down in the drawing room, Elizabeth is going through her mail looking for something. Not finding it, she gripes to Julia, "There's still no check. How embarrassing. When Quentin was here, Roger and I always got our checks on time. Chris knows our position. Is he trying to insult us?" Julia promises, "I'll talk to Chris". Elizabeth sadly remarks, "I've never liked handling money, even when I had it. I suppose that's why I let Roger manage it, now our side of the family has no more". There's a telephone call. Julia answers it. It's Quentin. He tells Julia, "We'll be returning to Collinwood tonight". Julia asks, "Will you be here in time for dinner?" Quentin replies, "No, but we'll be there for supper. Make it for two. We'll see you at around eleven". Elizabeth remarks, "Everything is going to be so different. Sam was a only a painter. He moved away from town years ago. He had two daughters. Who would have thought one of them would come back as Quentin's wife?" She worries about how happy Quentin will be with his new wife. Julia says, "He was happy when he married Angelique. He had everything!". Elizabeth asks, "Did he tell you which room he's decided on?" Julia replies, "I'll take care of it".

In Angelique's room, Barnabas is telling Carolyn, "I will need your help. I will need a hiding place and a coffin. Do you live here?" Carolyn replies, "No, we live at the Old House. We call it the Loomis House". Barnabas asks her, "Is your husband very inquisitive?" Carolyn replies, "Yes, but I'll tell him you're renting a room at Loomis House. We're not rich like the others". There's a noise outside the door. Barnabas quickly hides behind the curtains to the bedroom. Julia comes in and asks, "Do you have someone here with you this time?" Carolyn lies that she doesn't. Julia continues, "I heard voices, Mrs. Loomis! Who is in here with you?" Carolyn again lies, "You couldn't have heard voices. I'm here all alone". Julia asks, "Why are you here?" Carolyn replies, "I came to find the book". She holds up the book and says, "And this time I found it. You don't know how important this is to us." She pretends to suddenly feel faint and sits in a chair. Hoffman tries to get her to leave, but Carolyn complains, "Even when she was alive, we were allowed to sit in this room". Julia leaves, saying, "I've got to open up the suite down the hall. Mr. Collins called and said he's coming home tonight". Barnabas comes back out. He takes the book and rips out the page with Willie's inscription, saying that way no one will know it's the same copy. He then asks, "Tell me, who is Quentin Collins married to?" Carolyn replies, "A girl none of us knows. She used to live in the village as a child. Her name is Maggie Evans". Barnabas is shocked.

Quentin and Maggie are in a hotel room in Boston. Quentin is sitting sipping a drink and brooding. Maggie asks, "What's wrong?" Quentin replies, "Maybe I've made a mistake. Maybe we should've stayed away longer". Maggie asks, "Why do you want to stay away from Collinwood? Is it because of Angelique?" Quentin gets angry at the mention of the name and goes out onto the balcony. Maggie asks, "It's me, isn't it?" She tells him not to worry, saying she'll be very good at managing the house, if that's what he's worried about. Quentin replies, "You needn't worry about that. Miss Hoffman's very good at that". She asks, "What's wrong?", but he just says, "I love you. Never forget that" and kisses her. She suggests, "Maybe we should stay here in Boston tonight", but he replies, "No, we leave tonight!"

Barnabas takes Carolyn down into the room in the basement in the old house where he usually kept his coffin in the other time band. Carolyn exclaims, "I never knew about this room before!" Barnabas replies, "Good. Then chances are that you're husband doesn't know about it either." Carolyn starts to ask, "How do you..." Barnabas finishes he sentence for her, "...know so much about this house?" He tells her about parallel time, saying, "You see, I came to this time band trying to escape what I am, but as you can see, I failed." Carolyn asks what she's like in his time band. He replies, "You are an heiress there". Carolyn remarks, "Oh, I'd like it over there!" Barnabas tells her, "You wouldn't. Your husband was just killed there". Carolyn says, "Willie? Maybe I wouldn't mind so much". Barnabas tells her, "Not Willie. In the other time you were married to a man named Jeb Hawkes". Carolyn tells him, "I don't know anyone named Jeb Hawkes". Barnabas says, "In the other time Julia Hoffman was a doctor. How did she happen to come to Collinwood here?" Carolyn replies, "She came with Angelique. It was hard to tell who was in charge of whom". He asks about Angelique. Carolyn tells him, "She always wanted to marry Quentin, even when she lived here as a child". Barnabas asks, "She lived here as a child?" Carolyn replies, "Yes, with her father, Timothy Stokes". Barnabas gasps, "Everything so familiar, yet so different!". He asks, "Did you like Angelique?" Carolyn becomes angry and growls, "You don't need to know everything!". Barnabas remarks, "You've just answered my question" and tells her they must get a coffin and prepare it.

Julia is in Angelique's room talking to the portrait, "So he came back, and HER with him. Even he must learn that there can be only one mistress of Collinwood!"

Quentin and Maggie arrive outside the front doors of Collinwood. Maggie says, "Quentin! You don't know how much I've always wanted to be in this house!" He replies, "It's all yours now!" She gushes, "Oh, Quentin!"

Julia is light some candles on a small table on which she has set dinner for two in front of the fireplace in the drawing room. Elizabeth asks, "Did you have to serve them supper here?" Julia replies, "He always liked it here." Elizabeth corrects her, "You mean SHE did". She lifts the cover off a serving bowl and asks, "Did you prepare ALL her favorites?" Julia replies, "Mr. Collins left the choice to me".

Quentin opens the front doors and goes into the foyer. From outside, Maggie complains, "Didn't you forget something? Why do I always have to remember the traditional things? You're supposed to sweep me off my feet and carry me over the threshold!". Quentin does so. They find Elizabeth and Julia in the foyer. Elizabeth greets Quentin warmly. Quentin introduces Elizabeth and Maggie to one another, then he introduces Julia to Maggie saying, "She'll take care of you a hundred ways each day!". Julia asks, "Would you like to have supper now or go to your room first?" Quentin replies that they would like to eat first and starts towards the door under the stairs to go to the dining room, but Julia tells him, "I thought you'd like to eat by the fire". Quentin, suddenly very angry, shouts, "Why the devil did you do that?" Julia replies, "I thought Mrs. Collins would enjoy it". Quentin continues to glare at Julia. Maggie asks, "What's wrong?" Quentin replies, "Nothing - this time!". Elizabeth excuses herself to go upstairs to write some letters. Quentin and Maggie go into the drawing room. Maggie gushes over the drawing room, "Oh, it's even more than I imagined it to be! Quentin, you can't imagine how happy I am!" She goes up to the dining table, lifts the cover off a serving dish and exclaims, "Oh, crabmeat! I adore crabmeat". She look over and adds, "And champagne!". Quentin, now furious, shouts at Julia, "Did you do this deliberately?!?!" Julia feigns ignorance, "Have I done something wrong?" Quentin continues, "How dare you, woman!" Julia says , "I don't understand", but Quentin yells, "Oh yes you do!" and storm out the front doors.

Maggie is now waiting alone in the drawing room for Quentin. Someone pushes a note under the closed doors. Maggie sees it. She opens the note, written in a large handwriting with lots of flourishes, and reads it,

 "You are not wanted here. Now, or ever.
                                             Angelique"
 
Maggie exclaims, "It can't be! She's dead!"

Though the great house of Collinwood looks the same, everything that happens in it is different this night. For Barnabas Collins is trapped in Parallel Time. He has entered another time band, running concurrently with ours, and to his amazement he discovers a Collinwood ruled by the memory of a dead mistress: Angelique. And a new bride has entered the house, wanting to find happiness with Quentin, but instead finding an enemy she can not fight.

Maggie thinks, "Angelique is dead! She couldn't have written this! It must be someone's idea of a joke!". She is interrupted by Julia coming into the room and asking, "Mr. Collins hasn't come back yet?" Maggie replies, "No he hasn't". Julia asks, "Would you like to go up to your room?" Maggie replies, "Yes". Julia tells her, "I had the liberty of taking your luggage up to your room. You'll be very comfortable there. It looks out onto the sea". Maggie asks, "Did hers? Did Angelique's?" Julia replies, "No. Come with me". She apologizes for what happened, "I'm sorry if I did anything wrong. I just made the usual arrangements. Mr. Collins has never been upset with them before".

Barnabas and Carolyn are at the Old House. Barnabas asks, "You're husband's not back yet?" Carolyn replies, "He's probably at the Eagle". Barnabas asks, "The Eagle?" Carolyn replies, "A bar in town". Willie comes in through the front doors. He sees Barnabas and orders, "Turn around!" Barnabas turns. When he gets to the point where Willie can see his profile, Willie orders, "STOP!" Willie looks at Barnabas and says, "Carolyn, look! The silhouette in my book! It's him!" Barnabas explains, "I am a descendant about the Barnabas you wrote so brilliantly about in your book". Willie asks, "You've read my book?" Barnabas replies, "Yes, and I've come on a pilgrimage to see you". Willie says, "This calls for a drink!" He sees the copy of the book and says, "Look here! You've brought a copy!" He opens the book, sees that a page has been torn out and grumbles, "Oh! The way some people treat books! A page has been torn out!" Carolyn tells Willie that Barnabas is renting a room in the Old House. They get into an argument about this, Willie saying, "I'd never rent a room to a relative, never!", but Barnabas insists on paying, saying, "It will be a pleasure to stay in the house my ancestor loved so well". Willie tells him, "But there's one thing. I'll need my privacy. I'm writing another book". Carolyn laughs derisively. Willie, sounding defensive, says, "Well I am! I'm starting this week, for sure!" Barnabas assures Willie he'll have his privacy.

Maggie and Quentin are in their room. Quentin, who's just come back, says to Maggie, "I don't want you being angry". Maggie replies, "I just want to know why you ran from the room. Did it have anything to do with mre?" Quentin replies, "Not you, me". She asks him what he means, but he again becomes angry, "Stop it! Just stop it!" Maggie dejectedly says, "All right, Quentin, let's just go to bed".

Barnabas and Carolyn have gotten a coffin ready in the basement room of the Old House. Barnabas worries, "What if Willie realizes it's the same book?" Carolyn assures him, "He was so drunk he's probably already forgotten about it". Barnabas tells her, "Guard me carefully. I'm in particular danger because I know little of this time band".

In the drawing room of Collinwood, Maggie is writing a letter, starting "My dear Sister". Julia comes into the room. She tells Maggie, "Cook and I have prepared the menu for this week. Would you like to look it over?" She asks, "Did you find the room comfortable?" Maggie replies, "Yes, Miss Hoffman". Julia asks, "And your husband?" Maggie replies, "I think so". Maggie asks, "Miss Hoffman, where is Angelique's room?" Julia replies, "In the East Wing. Anything else I can tell you?" Maggie replies, "Yes, where is Daniel Collins? With a young boy around, I should be able to hear him". Julia replies, "Daniel is not well today". Quentin comes into the room. He tells Maggie, "I have to go to the cannery". He suggests she spend the day exploring the house, the tells Julia, "I'd like to speak to you privately for minute.

Quentin and Julia go to the foyer and close the doors talk about Daniel's disapproval of the new marriage. Inside the drawing room, Maggie eavesdrops and wonders, "Why hasn't anyone told me Daniel resents me?"

At the old house, Willie comes into the living room. Carolyn asks, "Where have you been?" Willie replies, "I just got up". Carolyn snidely adds, "With a hangover, I assume". Willie asks, "Where's Barnabas?" Carolyn lies, "He got up and left early" Willie points out, "But I looked in his room and the bed hasn't been slept in". Carolyn lies, "I've already made the bed". Willie continues, "You know, I think Barnabas has been here longer than he says. That book, it's the same book. I could smell Angelique's perfume on it". Carolyn tells him, "You're imagining things" To avoid answering any more questions about Barnabas, Carolyn pretends to have a migraine headache. Willie tells her, "I'm going to Collinwood. Coming?" Carolyn declines. Willie adds, "When I see Barnabas, I'm going to have a chat with him!". Carolyn warns him, "Don't say anything to offend him. We need that money! Don't you forget that!"

Maggie is sitting at the desk in the drawing room, looking through the drawers thinking, "I only I could find something Angelique wrote, then I could see if this is in her handwriting". She is interrupted by Julia coming into the room with a tea service. Julia tells her, "I don't who's coming here today. Are you going to continue the tradition? At tea time, anyone is allowed to drop by". Willie comes in. Maggie pours a cup of tea and offers it to him. Willie looks at the tea with a look of dismay on his face and stammers, "Oh, uh, no! You see, that stuff is bad for you. I never touch it. The tannic acid's bad for you." Julia pours him a brandy, which he accepts, excuses herself and leaves. Willie whispers in Maggie's ear, "I'm glad you're all alone. Don't trust anyone here! Don't trust anyone at all! It's a nest of hornets! Watch your step carefully!" Maggie remarks, "I've met Mrs. Stoddard. She seems nice". Willie replies, "She'll smile in you face. Your husband pays her bills". Maggie tells him, "Mr. Loomis, I have a letter here I'd like you to look at". She shows Willie the letter. Willie, a look of shock on her face, exclaims, "I never thought I'd see her handwriting again!" Maggie says, "But it can't be. She's dead, and I don't believe in ghosts". Willie replies, "This is the house for them".

At the old house, Barnabas awakens and comes out of his coffin. He thinks to himself, "I don't want to hurt anyone, despite the failure to change what I am". Carolyn comes into the room. She tells him, "I've been waiting all day for you, Barnabas. You need me, don't you?" Barnabas replies, "No, Carolyn", but Carolyn insists, "You can't just start this and then stop! I won't let you! I'll tell Willie about you! I'll tell everyone!". Barnabas bites her.

Maggie is wandering around the East Wing, thinking, "Her room. I must find her room!" Finally, she finds a door to a room she hears Hoffman's voice saying, "You should have seen her! She poured a cup of tea for Willie! You should have seen the look on his face!". She is about to go in when Hoffman comes out. Maggie remarks, "I heard voices in there". Julia lies, "I was just talking to one of the servants. You shouldn't be in this part of the house. We haven't cleaned it for you yet" and ushers her away.

Willie is talking to Carolyn at the Old House. Suddenly, Carolyn collapses. Willie examines her and finds the bite marks on her throat...

It is dawn. Barnabas returns to the basement room and is about to open his coffin when he hears a voice call out, "Wait! Not yet, Mr. Collins!" He looks up and sees Willie Loomis holding a flashlight and a cross. He covers his face. Willie remarks, "So, the legends are true!". He asks Barnabas, "Where did you come from?" Barnabas replies, "Another band of time". Willie asks, "You exist in another time?" Barnabas replies, "Yes. There, I am the first Barnabas Collins that you wrote about, the son of Joshua Collins." Willie gleefully exclaims, "Oh, a book! A book at last! I need you, Mr. Collins! You're going to make me very famous! I'm going to write a book..." Barnabas opens his coffin and screams. Attached to the lid is a cross. Willie tells him, "I'm taking no chances, Mr. Collins. Get in there, please. You're my hope, my salvation! Yes, my salvation!" Barnabas gets into the coffin. Willie closes the lid, then proceeds to chain the coffin...
