For several weeks, Barnabas Collins has known of a strange room in the East Wing of the great house of Collinwood. A room in which he discovered the existence of another level of time. The people he saw in this room were all people he knew, and yet they were leading completely different lives. They were living in a world of parallel time. Now through some mystifying warp in time, Barnabas has become a part of this existence, but he soon discovers he is placed himself in great danger. For a man named William Loomis has learned Barnabas's darkest secret. And now Barnabas Collins lies trapped in a chained coffin. There is no one to help him. And he has no way of knowing what strange and mysterious events are going on in this world of parallel time.

Maggie is pacing around in the drawing room looking very anxious and worried. Elizabeth comes in and asks, "Are you ready to meet the children?" Maggie replies, "Yes. I think it might be better if Quentin was with me", but Elizabeth disagrees, "I think it would be better if you did this alone. It's about time Daniel realized that you're now Mrs. Collins".

Upstairs in Daniel's room, Amy is saying to Daniel, "I'm so glad you've decided to meet her". Daniel replies, "I'm going to go much more than just meet her. I'm going to drive her from this house!", snapping a comb in anger.

Amy asks, "Why?" Daniel replies, "I want her out of this house!" Amy protests, "But your father married her. She must be nice." Daniel replies, "He didn't marry her because of that. He married her because he was lonely. She'll be sorry she ever came into this house!"

Quentin is in the drawing room with Maggie discussing her fears about meeting the children. Quentin assures her everything will turn out OK. Chris comes into the room. Quentin introduces him to Maggie, "Cousin Chris, also lawyer, and manager of the estate for me." Chris tells Quentin, "I need to talk to you in private. It's about Bruno". Quentin asks, "What about him?" Chris replies, "He's come back. They go out into the foyer and close the doors. Quentin asks, "How long has he been back?" Chris replies, "Elizabeth discovered him in Angelique's room a few days ago." Quentin asks, "Who let him in?" Chris replies, "He let himself in." Quentin asks, "Where is he now?" Chris replies, "In the cottage. I passed by it a few minutes ago and heard him inside playing the piano". Quentin asks, "What did you do?" Chris replies, "Nothing. I wanted to talk to you first. He said Angelique gave him permission to stay there". Quentin growls, "Angelique is dead. He can't count on her benevolence anymore. I want him off my property! Call me if he gives you any trouble!" and storms off angrily again. Chris goes into the drawing room and apologizes, "Sorry if I got your husband angry. Have you seen the estate?" Maggie replies that she hasn't. Chris promises to give her a tour sometime, saying, "I want you to be happy here". Maggie replies, "I want to make Mr. Collins happy, as happy as he was with the first Mrs. Collins". Chris gets a sad look on his face and says, "Angelique became a legend in her own time. It will be difficult to live up to a legend".

Elizabeth goes into Daniel's room and tells the children, "Your father told me to bring you down".

Quentin has calmed down and returned. He apologizes to Maggie for getting angry about Bruno and storming off. Maggie asks, "Who is Bruno? Why do you dislike him so much?" Quentin replies, "Someone I hope you'll never meet. The less said about him, the better". Elizabeth brings the children in. Quentin introduces them to Maggie, "My son Daniel, and cousin Amy, Chris' sister". Amy cheerily says, "Pleased to meet you! But I don't know what to call you." Maggie tells her, "How about Maggie?" Quentin says, "I have work to do. I'll leave you to get acquainted" and leaves.

In the foyer, Elizabeth tells Quentin, "You don't know how devoted Daniel was to Angelique...." Quentin becomes angry again, says, "I'll be in my study!" and storms off again.

In the drawing room, Maggie and Amy are talking amiably. Amy asks, "Have you been in Collinsport before?" Maggie replies, "I used to live here when I was a child, but we moved away when I was eight". Daniel, however, works on a jigsaw puzzle, studiously ignoring Maggie. Trying to get him to talk, she goes to him and says, "I'll be needing your help". He asks, "How?" Maggie replies, "Collinwood is such a huge estate, I'll need someone to show me around", but Daniel coldly replies, "Chris will show you the estate. That's his job. Everyone in Collinwood has a job to do. That's the way my mother wanted it. She said Collinwood was like a big clock you could run your life by". The clock strikes noon. Daniel asks, "Have you met the gardener yet?" Maggie replies that she hasn't. Daniel tells her, "My mother used to meet the gardener everyday at noon to tell him what to do. She planned all the landscaping. That's why Collinwood is so beautiful". Maggie is very intimidated.

When they have finished, Daniel goes out into the foyer. Elizabeth coldly remarks, "You must be proud of that performance of yours in there". Daniel replies, "I knew you'd be out here listening, I just knew it", not seeming to care what she thinks. After the children leave, Elizabeth tries to reassure Maggie, "It's going to take time", but Maggie moans, "I was a disaster!" Elizabeth explains, "The boy is living in the past. He's never accepted his mother's death. You're going to have to be the one to get him to accept it.". Maggie remarks, "His mother must have been some woman". Elizabeth replies, "Yes she was".

Daniel takes Amy to Angelique's room. Amy asks, "Why are we here?" Daniel replies, "This is the only place in the house we can talk. I've thought of a way to get rid of Maggie!" Amy tells him, "I'm not going to help you! It isn't right!" Daniel grabs her arm and puts it in a hammerlock. She reluctantly agrees to help. He starts to tell her his plan, "There's a secret panel..."

Quentin has returned and is with Maggie, asking her, "How can you say you failed after only one meeting?" Maggie replies, "He hates me! He'll always hate me!" Quentin assures her, "He just doesn't know you. You have to show him you're his friend. To know you is to love you! He'll come around!".

Daniel is with Amy in a secret passage, going over his plan with her, "All you have to do is stand here. My mother's room is just on the other side. You can hear everything we say. Now repeat to me, when do you start humming hum?" Amy replies, "When you say 'Mother, please sing to me again'".

The clock in the foyer reads 6:25. Maggie is in the drawing room, reading a newspaper. David comes in looking for Quentin. Maggie tells him Quentin's not there and suggests he try the study. The clock in the foyer strikes 6:30. Daniel says, "Silly me. There's only one place he could be. He's there every day at this time". Maggie asks, "Where?" "Standing in front of my mother's portrait, remembering her. Sometimes he talks to her". Maggie asks, "Why are you trying to upset me?" Daniel replies, "I'm not trying to upset you. I'm just telling you where he is". Maggie tells him, "He couldn't be there. He's not the kind of man who would cling to the past". Daniel replies, "Shows how much you know him. He loved her very much. He'll never get over her death. If you don't believe me, go up and see for yourself!"

Maggie goes up to Angelique's room. She looks around, but finds that Quentin isn't there. Daniel comes into the room. Maggie remarks, "Your father's not here". Daniel replies, "Maybe he left before you came". He looks at the portrait and says, "Isn't she beautiful? Soon, she'll be back." Maggie remarks, "That's ridiculous". Daniel shouts, "She told me she would be back!" Maggie says, "That's nonsense", but Daniel continues, "But she said she would! She told me after she was gone! Please, mother, sing to me again!" The sound of someone humming Brahms's "Lullaby" is heard. Maggie screams, "It's not possible! It's a trick!", but Daniel insists, "It's not a trick! She's still here! She never left!" Maggie shouts, "Stop it!" and runs off. Amy comes into the room. Daniel congratulates her, "You were wonderful! You did exactly what I wanted", then with a puzzled look on his face, "How did you get here so fast from the secret passage?" Amy replies, "I wasn't in the secret passage. That's what I came here to tell you. Chris stopped me downstairs. I just got here. It wasn't me". Daniel looks at the portrait and asks, "If it wasn't you, then who was it?"

In a strange room in the East Wing of the great house at Collinwood, Barnabas Collins discovered the existence of another level of time. The people he saw in the room were all people he knew, and yet they were all leading completely different lives. They were living in a world of parallel time. Through some mystifying warp in time, Barnabas became a part of this other existence, but he soon discovered he had placed himself in great danger, for a man named William Loomis discovered Barnabas's darkest secret, and now Barnabas Collins lies trapped in a chained coffin. There is no one to help him, and he has no way of knowing what strange and frightening things are happening in this world of parallel time.

Daniel stares at Angelique's portrait. Amy asks, "Daniel, what's wrong?" Daniel replies, "It was HER! She's back! She sang to me!" Amy tells him, "That's not possible. It must have been your imagination", but Daniel insists, "It wasn't my imagination! I heard it and Maggie heard it too! She IS back!". Amy points out, "People can't come back from the dead". Daniel insists, "Maybe she did! Maybe I can make her sing again! Sing, mother!" Amy becomes frightened, screams, "I don't want to hear it! I don't want to!" and runs off". But this time there is no humming. Daniel looks at the portrait and says, "I heard you hum, and that's all that matters".

In the drawing room, Maggie asks Julia, "Do you know where Mr. Collins is?" Julia replies, "In his study". Maggie asks, "Could you go and get him for me? I have something important to talk to him about", but Julia refuses, saying, "He doesn't like to be bothered when he's in his study". Just at that moment, Quentin comes walking into the room. He tells Julia, "You may leave, Miss Hoffman". Julia leaves. He asks Maggie, "What's wrong?" Maggie asks, "Is it true that you go to Angelique's room every day to meditate and remember her?" Quentin asks, "Where did you get that idea?" Maggie replies, "Daniel told me. So I went there..." Quentin interrupts, "You went to Angelique's room?!" Maggie continues, "I had to! Ever since I came into this house, I've been compared to Angelique, how beautiful she was, how efficient she was..." Quentin assure her, "No matter what anyone says, you've replaced her. I don't know what Daniel told you, but I haven't been in Angelique's room since the day she died". Maggie remarks, "Then it must have been a childish prank". Quentin asks, "What was?" Maggie recounts what happened. Quentin becomes angry and says, "It won't happen again! I'm going to talk to him!" and storms off.

Maggie is coming out into the foyer. At the same time, Julia comes out from the door under the stairs. Julia asks, "Is something wrong, Mrs. Collins?" Maggie replies, "Everything I do turns out to be wrong! So far, I've been a total disaster!" Julia replies, "The first Mrs. Collins couldn't do anything wrong as far as Daniel was concerned. It was the little things she did". Maggie asks, "What little things?" Julia replies, "For example, Daniel broke on of his favorite records the other day. The first Mrs. Collin would have noticed and replaced it". Maggie asks, "Do you know where I could find a copy of this record?' Julia replies, "Yes I do..."

Quentin is in Daniel's room, chastising him for playing a prank on Maggie, "I don't want you playing anymore jokes..." Daniel insists, "I wasn't playing a joke! I heard my mother! She's somewhere in the house trying to communicate with us!" Quentin becomes angry and says, "No more such talk! Angelique is dead. From this moment on, I forbid you from going into that room!"

Quentin is in the drawing room reading a newspaper. He hears the front doors open. He gets up to see who it is. It's Maggie, her arms laden with shopping bags and packages. Quentin quips, "It looks like you've been to every store in town". Maggie replies, "I had to go everywhere I remembered as a child. Would you believe I even ran into two people who recognized me?" Quentin remarks, "I find your innocence so charming. EVERYONE recognized you. You're the new mistress of Collinwood. They just didn't say anything". He asks, "What did you buy?" Maggie replies, "Lot's of thing's and a special surprise for Daniel". Quentin asks, "What is it?", but Maggie refuses to tell him, saying, "You'll find out when he does!". Quentin replies, "OK, I like surprises. I'm glad to see you're taking the initiative with Daniel".

Julia is talking with Daniel in his room, "As difficult as it is for all of us, things will change, Daniel". Daniel replies, "They won't as long as SHE's here". Julia remarks, "Your father told me about that prank you played on her". Daniel insists, "It wasn't a prank! It really happened!" Julia asks, "Tell me about it", but Daniel refuses, "I don't want to talk about it". Julia begs, "You know how devoted I was to her. Please tell me what happened!" Daniel tells her. Julia says, "Then there's still hope! She hasn't abandoned us, and now I know she never will!" Quentin peeks in through the door and tells David, "Your stepmother has a surprise for you!" and leaves. Daniel tells Julia, "I'm not going", but Julia says, "I suggest you do. Take my advice and go. My intuition tells me that this is a surprise you will like!"

In the drawing room, Maggie is taking an LP out of its sleeve and putting it onto the turntable of an old-fashioned console stereo. Amy comes into the room, saying, "I was told you were in here. I've been looking for you". Maggie replies, "I just got back. Why have you been looking for me?" Amy holds out a bouquet of flowers, saying, "To give you these. I picked them from the greenhouse especially for you". Maggie says, "Thank you. I appreciate it". Amy tells her, "You'll have to be patient with Daniel." Maggie agrees, "I'll be very patient with him". Amy remarks, "I knew you'd be like this even before you came. Maggie, we're going to be good friends!" Daniel comes into the room, saying, "My father said you had a surprise for me". Maggie replies, "Yes! I hope you like it! Both of you sit down! I'd like you to listen to something!" Maggie has both Daniel and Amy sit on the couch for her surprise. She goes and turns the record player on. Some piano music plays. Amy listens with a look of shock on her face. Daniel, on the other hand, starts to grin evilly. Maggie asks, "What's wrong, Amy?" Suddenly, Quentin comes bursting into the room, stomps over to the stereo and turns if off, then shouts, "Who's played that record?!" Maggie replies, "I did". Quentin shouts, "What a stupid thing to do!!!!" Maggie runs from the room in tears. Daniel smiles and says, "She'll never be my mother, never!"

Maggie is alone in the foyer, agonizing over what happened. Julia comes into the foyer and asks, "Is something wrong, Mrs. Collins?" Maggie shouts, "You know something's wrong! You knew how he would respond to that record, yet you deliberately kept it from me!" Julia lies, "I didn't". Maggie asks, "Then why don't you tell me?!" Quentin, who's come into the foyer, says, "I'd like and answer to that question too. Sorry I exploded, Maggie." Maggie, still distraught, exclaims, "Everything I do turns out all wrong!" and runs off. Quentin remarks to Julia, "She thought you were to blame. Obviously, there must be a reason". Julia admits, "It was I who suggested she buy that record for Daniel." Quentin says, "You know how I feel about that record!" Julia explains, "I thought it would help Mrs. Collins' relationship with Daniel. I didn't think of how it would affect you". Quentin tells her, "My feelings don't matter right now. You've hurt my wife. You should apologize to her. See that this never happens again!" Julia replies, "I will".

Maggie is in Angelique's room talking to the portrait, "If only you were flesh and blood! Then I could fight you. But how can I fight a presence?" Julia comes into the room and says, "I apologize. I'm very sorry about what happened. I thought only of how Daniel would like the record. I didn't stop to think how it would affect Mr. Collins". Maggie accepts her apology. Julia looks up at the portrait and says, "I forgot how much Mr. Collins her. Everyone loved her. And how can you blame them? Look at her. She was the heart and soul and lifeblood of Collinwood, a legend in her own life." Maggie gripes, "Only you could turn an apology into a testimonial!", then adds, "Excuse me, I'm going to apologize to my husband. I've made my mistake. But I learn, Miss Hoffman, I learn!" and leaves. Julia, now alone in the room, says to the portrait, "This house needs you more than anyone! If you can come back, please find a way to do it! We're waiting for you!"

Maggie is going down the foyer stairs thinking to herself, "Quentin told me it would be a challenge. Now I must find a way to rise to the challenge, no matter how many of them are against me! I am the mistress of Collinwood, and no one can change that! No one!" She is surprised to hear an unfamiliar female voice in the drawing room saying, "I'm sorry I didn't notify you in advance. It must have been quite a shock!" Quentin replies, "Well, I must admit I didn't know what to think at first. Would you like a sherry?" The female voice responds, "I'd love one". Maggie looks into the room and gasps, "My God, she's back! She's come back!" Inside sipping a sherry is Angelique..."

In a deserted room in the East Wing, Barnabas Collins has discovered an incredible world which exists in another time band. And now he has stepped into that time band, and found those he knows and loves living other lives, faced with other problems. Maggie Evans is now the bride of Quentin Collins, but her marriage has brought her only misery, for she must constantly fight the ghost of Quentin's first wife, Angelique. But Maggie is determined to win the fight, no matter what the cost, and take her rightful place as Mistress of Collinwood.

Maggie, terrified, has run back to her room and is sitting there in a state of shock. Quentin comes knocking at the door, but Maggie just sits there not answering. Finally, Quentin opens the door and goes in. He tells her, "Let me explain...", but she screams, "What's there to explain? I saw her there!" The woman appears at the doorway, saying, "I thought it would be best to get it over with quickly". Maggie shouts, "Don't let her near me! Don't!" Quentin tells the woman to go back to the drawing room. He then explains to Maggie, "Maggie, that woman's name is Alexis, she's Angelique's twin sister. She's just arrived from Florence. She's just heard of Angelique's death. Now let's go downstairs", but Maggie is still hysterical and screams, "I don't want to see her!" Quentin gives up and leaves, saying, "We have a guest downstairs. One of us has to be with her".

Chris is in what looks to be a laboratory in a cellar somewhere. With him is the man who looks like Jeb Hawkes. The man, whom Chris addresses as "Cyrus", is saying, "I saw Angelique! I was driving through town and saw her walking in the street!". Chris replies, "Cyrus, you're a scientist". Cyrus asks, "What does that have to do with it?" Chris replies, "Scientists deal with facts. Angelique is dead. It's a fact that people don't return from the dead." Cyrus counters, "At one time people believed the earth was flat and that the sun revolved around the earth. To them, these were facts, and they were wrong. I saw Angelique! I saw her walking in the street!" Chris replies, "There must be some explanation". He suggests, "You've been working too hard. You've locked yourself in this basement for over a year! It can't be good for your health!" Cyrus remarks, "You wouldn't understand what I'm doing here". Chris asks, "What ARE you doing here? I'd like to know", but Cyrus refuses to tell him, saying, "You might misunderstand". Chris insists, saying, "I'm a friend". Cyrus tells him, "Man is chemical in composition. If a compound can be made to change that composition, the man will be changed also. I am distilling such a compound. Furthermore, Man is not one person, but two. One is good and one is evil. These two persons are always with us, but if they can be separated, good can operate without evil interfering." Chris says, "I'm worried about you. You seem to have become obsessed with an impractical idea". Cyrus replies, "It's not impractical. If you had let me have that chemist's address, I might have succeeded by now".. Chris remarks, "Then I'm glad I didn't give Angelique's address book to you". Cyrus tells him, "Angelique believed in me. She was the one who got me started". Chris remarks, "Separating good from evil. I have no doubt which one appealed to her".

In the drawing room of Collinwood, Alexis is telling Quentin, I must go. I have such a devastating effect on Maggie", but Quentin insists that she stay, saying he makes the decisions at Collinwood, not Maggie. He calls for Julia. Julia comes into the room and starts to say, "You called for me, Mr. Collins...", but suddenly gasps, "Ah!!! It's you!" when she sees Alexis.

After everything is cleared up, Quentin apologizes to Julia, "Hoffman, don't be upset. If there was any way I could have told you in advance Alexis was here I would have." Hoffman, in turn, says, "Sorry I lost my composure. I should have known very well who she was. Angelique has spoken of her twin sister many times." Quentin tells Alexis, "Miss Hoffman will take care of you. If you need anything, ask her". Julia tells Alexis, "The first Mrs. Collins spoke of you quite often". Alexis remarks, "The news of her death came as a great shock to me". Julia asks, "Didn't you get my letter?" Alexis replies, "No". Julia continues, "But I wrote to you in Tangiers at the last address I got from your sister". Alexis replies, "Well, I never got the letter". Quentin asks, "Then why did you come here?" Alexis replies, "I just had a feeling I was needed here". Quentin tells Julia, "I want you to make her stay here a comfortable one". Julia says, "I'd like to give her the first Mrs. Collins' room, if you don't object". Quentin replies, "No, I don't object". Alexis says, "I'd like that very much".

After they leave, Quentin thinks to himself, "I wish she didn't look so much like her. I'm getting as bad as Maggie. Of course she looks like her! She's her sister, from far away. But how far away? I wonder..."

Back at the cellar lab, Chris is telling Cyrus, "I'm worried about you. I spoke to Dr. Reese the other night and he said you gave a talk about black magic at the scientific conference!" Cyrus replies, "To quote Shakespeare, "There is more on heaven and earth than dreamt of in your philosophies, Horatio' - and in yours and Dr. Reese's". Chris warns him, "This can only lead to trouble". Cyrus counters, "This can only lead to glory. Now if you will only give me the name of that chemist, I can be finished very quickly". Chris replies, "No. If there's any way to stop you, I'll stop you - before it's too late!"

At Collinwood, Julia has brought Alexis to Angelique's room. Alexis exclaims, "This room is beautiful!" Julia remarks, "It's just the way you left it! Nothing's been changed!" Alexis asks, "What are you talking about?" Julia replies, "I can understand why you had to tell everyone else you're your twin sister, but you don't have to lie to me. I know you've come back!" Alexis exclaims, "That's impossible! Angelique's dead! You can't come back from the dead!". Julia replies, "Angelique is not like everyone else". Alexis says emphatically, "She's dead, and I'm her sister". She tells Julia her luggage is still in town and asks her to bring her one of Angelique's nightgowns. Julia asks, "Which one". Alexis replies, "How should I know? I've never seen any of them before. You pick one for me". Julia brings a pink one with big, furry short sleeves, saying, "This was her favorite".

As Julia is walking through the bedroom hallway, Maggie warily peeks out the door of her room. Julia tells her, "Mrs. Collins, you might be interested in knowing that young lady is staying" Maggie replies, "I see. By whose orders?" Julia replies, Mr. Collins', of course".

Maggie goes down into the drawing room and finds that Quentin is not there. However, she finds that the brandy container is empty. She wonders, "Quentin, what is happening to you? What is happening to all of us?"

Quentin is lurking about outside the door to Angelique's room. He hears piano music coming from inside the room, the same music that was on the record Maggie had bought. He opens the doors and goes in. Alexis is playing the piano, her back to him. Hearing him, she turns around and says, "Oh, I'm so sorry. I couldn't sleep, and I found this piece of sheet music. I hope I didn't disturb you". Quentin replies, "No, not at all", staring at her. Alexis asks, "Oh, is it the gown? Hoffman gave it to me. I left my luggage in town. I hope you don't mind". Quentin replies, "No, you look so much like her, especially in this room". Alexis asks, "You loved her very much, didn't you? So did I". She puts a hand on his shoulder to comfort him. Maggie happens to come in the room and shocked, runs off. Quentin goes after her.

Quentin finds Maggie in the drawing room. He tries to explain to her, but she just complains that he's never around, and even when he is, he seems to be a thousand miles away. They get into a tremendous argument. Maggie complains, "This is still Angelique's house!" Quentin shouts, "If you don't like it here, then why don't you get out of Angelique's house?" Maggie replies, "I will!" and storms out the front door. Quentin goes out into the foyer as if to follow, but then stops, apparently changing his mind. Alexis, who's on the stairs, asks, "What happened?" Quentin replies, "It's Maggie, she left". Alexis asks, "Don't you think you'd better go after her?" Quentin at first says, "No. She's just being childish!" but then changes his mind again and goes and opens the front doors - just in time to hear a car start and drive off. He remarks, "It's too late now, isn't it?"

The great, proud house of Collinwood, where Barnabas Collins has discovered that another identical Collinwood exists in parallel, concurrent time. And he has stumbled inadvertently through the barrier that separates the two times. His ancient curse has followed him even here, and his guilty secret was discovered by the dissilent William Hollingshed Loomis, who has chained his coffin in a deserted basement room. Were he free, he would see that a woman has come to Collinwood, adding terror to the fears of its new Mistress, Maggie Collins. The woman unchangingly resembles Maggie's husband's first wife, who is six months dead.

Quentin is in the drawing room drinking. Alexis, at the doorway, asks, "Would I be an intrusion if I came in?" Quentin replies, "You wouldn't find me very good company". Alexis comes in and says, "I had no idea Maggie would leave because of me. Can't everyone see how different I am from Angelique?" Quentin points out, "You look exactly like her". Alexis replies, "But inside we're very different. She had this inner radiance. Everything was so easy for her. Nothing was easy for me, least of all trying to be like her. What woman wouldn't want to be like she was? You must have loved her deeply". Quentin replies, "No one knows that better than I do how exquisite she was". Alexis asks, "Are you going to go find Maggie?" Quentin says, "Perhaps". Alexis says, "But she's your wife!" Quentin replies, "Please, if you don't mind, I'd rather not talk about it". Alexis, upset at herself for upsetting him, remarks, "My talents are the opposite of my sister's. She could do no wrong. I can't do anything right". Quentin tries to change the subject, "Let me hire you a car in the morning. You'll want to go into town to visit your father, of course." Alexis replies, "I want that least of all. That's another difference between my sister and me. I haven't had any contact with my father for years, and I'd like to keep it that way". She says goodnight to him and leaves the room.

Suddenly, Quentin hears a scream of terror in the foyer and runs out to see what it is. Standing on the stairs is Amy, a look of terror on her face. Looking at Alexis, she screams, "A ghost!" Quentin tells her, "That's Alexis, Angelique's twin sister!", but Amy insists, "No! It's Angelique!" Alexis says, "Perhaps I should go upstairs until you get everything straightened out" and goes upstairs. Amy says, "Daniel said she'd come back, but I didn't believe it! I heard her say Maggie left. Did she?" Quentin replies, "Yes". Amy remarks, "Of course she did, because Angelique came back! Please make her come back!" Quentin dismisses her, "That's not something you should concern yourself about. Go to bed!" Amy refuses, saying, "No! She's up there!", but Quentin orders her to go up and she reluctantly does. He then says to himself, "I will not go after her! It must be her decision to come back. I will not go after her!"

It is the next morning. The clock in the foyer reads 9:00. Quentin looks up a number in an address book then dials the number, "Hello, I'd like to make a person-to-person call...Maggie Collins...No, don't cancel the call...I'll talk to her sister...Hello, Jennifer, Maggie isn't there?... When she comes back, tell her I'd like to speak to her...Well, how are we supposed to settle our quarrel if she won't talk to me?... Would it help if I came to New York?....Jennifer, tell her I love her when she comes back... Yes, Alexis is still here, she wants to meet her nephew Daniel. He's away right now....Goodbye".

Cyrus is at the cottage visiting Bruno, telling him about seeing someone who looks just like Angelique, saying, "For a moment, I thought that perhaps your prophecy that Angelique would come back had come true." He then tells Bruno, "I need that address book of Angelique's". Bruno asks, "Then why don't you just walk in and get it?" Cyrus replies, "I tried that, but Chris wouldn't let me have it". Bruno says, "So, you want me to steal it for you, is that it? I understand". The front door opens and Quentin comes walking in. Bruno complains, "Quentin, don't you believe in knocking before coming in?" Quentin replies, "I don't believe in knocking on my own door." He turns to Cyrus and asks, "If you'd excuse us, I'd like to speak to Bruno alone, please". Cyrus obligingly leaves. Quentin tells Bruno, "All right, I'll give you one hour to pack up and get off my property!" Bruno retorts, "And I'll give you one minute to get off mine!" He proudly holds up a piece of paper and says, "Take a look at this! A deed from your late wife giving me sole possession of this cottage!" Quentin says, "That's a fraud, a forgery!" Bruno replies, "No such luck! Your wife was a great patron of the arts. She gave this to me in appreciation of all the music I dedicated to her." Quentin says, "We'll see about that! I'm going to talk to Chris about this immediately!" Bruno remarks, "If Chris is as clever a lawyer as I think he is, he'll see that my claim's legitimate". He adds, "I hear you have an interesting new guest at Collinwood who resembles Angelique". Quentin replies, "Twins often resemble one another, but what goes on at Collinwood is no business of yours" and leaves. Bruno muses, "Twins, eh?. I think I'll go see her".

There's a knock at the door of Collinwood. Amy answers. It's Bruno. Amy tells him, "She's up in her room". Bruno asks, "Who's up in her room?" Amy replies, "Quentin says her name is Alexis". Bruno asks, "How do you know who I want to see?" Amy replies, "You always come to see her". Bruno points out, "Alexis? But I've never met her before". Amy replies, "Go up. You'll see. I wonder if they'll make you call her Alexis too".

In Angelique's room, Alexis is playing the piano. Bruno comes in. Alexis stops playing. Bruno asks, "Don't stop! Keep playing!" Alexis asks, "May I ask what you are doing here?" Bruno replies, "Until a few moments ago, listening to some of my music. My name is Bruno". Alexis says, "Oh, I recognize you now! I like your music very much". Bruno replies, "Thank you. That piece was your sister's favorite". Alexis remarks, "I can see why". Bruno says, "There's a section where your sister always made the same mistake. I wonder if you're better. Could you play it for me?", but Alexis begs off, "I'd be so nervous playing it for the composer I'd make nothing but mistakes". She asks, "Do you want anything else?" Bruno asks, "Why do you ask that?" Alexis replies, "The way you keep staring at me". Bruno responds, "Yes, as a matter of fact there is. There's a book here I really need. Could I borrow it?" Alexis replies, "I don't see why not, it seems that you and Angelique were such good friends". Bruno looks around and finds the address book. He then tells Alexis, "Welcome to Collinwood. I live in a cottage on the estate. Angelique deeded it me before she died. Please, come visit me whenever you like. Are you staying long?" Alexis replies, "For a few days. I want to meet my nephew David. He's away right now". Bruno asks, "If you're the daughter of Timothy Stokes, why have I never had the pleasure of meeting you before?" Alexis explains, "I've been living in Florence the past few years. I sailed from Genoa and docked in New York". Bruno asks, "How's the weather in New York, warmer than here?" Alexis replies, "Yes, but not much". After Bruno leaves, Alexis takes the sheet music from the piano, looks at the cover and sees that it's entitled, "Ode to Angelique" by Bruno Hess with a picture of Bruno there.

Quentin, sounding very frustrated, is talking on the telephone, "Chris, it's got to be a fraud or a forgery! Angelique wouldn't do something like that!... Well, stick with it! We've got to get that parasite off my property!". Amy comes up to him with a telegram. Quentin asks, "When did this come?" Amy replies, "When you were out". Quentin looks at it and asks, "Who opened it?" Amy apologizes, "Sorry, I couldn't help it. I wanted to see if Maggie was coming back. She said she isn't sure, she has to think about it". Quentin admonishes her, "You know what you did was very wrong". Amy replies, "I know, but what about Alexis? Maggie went away because of her! At least I'm not as bad as her!"

Cyrus is at the cottage with Bruno. Bruno gives him the address book, saying, "Now you can continue with those experiment of yours". Cyrus thanks him. Bruno replies, "Don't thank me, thank a certain young lady. She's Angelique's twin sister". Cyrus muses, "Twin, eh?" After Cyrus leaves, Bruno calls the operator and asks, "Connect me to a travel agency in New York...any one will do...any one that would have information on what ships docked in New York from Genoa for the past week... Yes, Genoa..."

Quentin is lurking outside of Angelique's room. He hears "Ode to Angelique" on the piano inside again. He goes in. Alexis suddenly stops playing and starts weeping. Quentin asks, "Alexis, what's wrong?" Alexis replies, "I don't know. Maybe it's the music. Maybe it's this room, her room. I don't know!". Quentin replies, "I understand" and kisses her...

The great estate of Collinwood appears peaceful this day, but it conceals a puzzling mystery. Another Collinwood exists in time concurrent to its own. There the Collins family compiles of a different history. But the one man who has passed over through some warp in time is unable to participate in or even witness it. Barnabas Collins remains in a chained coffin, a captive of a man named William Loomis. While all around him, mystery deepens concerning the presence of a stranger, the twin of Quentin Collins' former wife, Angelique.

Alexis pulls away and says, "Quentin, please...". Quentin stops and apologizes, "I'm sorry. I don't know what came over me". Alexis replies, "You know and so do I. You thought I was Angelique, just like everyone else. It's been that way all my life, as if I didn't exist! You're just like Julia and Amy, you think I'm a ghost, and the way Bruno acted this afternoon..." Quentin asks, "Bruno was here?" Alexis replies, "Yes. He wanted to see if I were Angelique". Quentin vows, "He won't come here again!", but Alexis tells him, "It doesn't matter. I won't be here. I thought you of all people would know who and what I am". Quentin apologizes to her for thinking she was Angelique for a moment. She tells him she's sorry for making Maggie leave and says maybe it would help if he left, but Quentin tells her, "It's not that easy. I got a telegram from her saying she'll have to think things over before she decides anything". Quentin finally convinces her to stay, "Please stay. You have to. You need to meet Daniel".

Sabrina, dressed in a white lab coat, is in Cyrus' lab, reading a journal. Bruno comes in and remarks, "Do you always dress in a stiff, starched coat?" Sabrina replies, "It suits my personality". He tells her, "I think you'd look better in something soft and silky". Sabrina replies, "You'll never find out one way or the other!" Bruno says, "Don't bet on that!" and tries to hug her, but stops when he sees Cyrus coming down. Cyrus tells Sabrina to go upstairs, saying, "I'm expecting a special delivery package". Sabrina obediently goes upstairs. Bruno asks Cyrus, "Are you really that cool or perhaps you didn't see what just happened". Cyrus replies that he saw it but it doesn't bother him. Bruno asks, "Don't you care?" Cyrus replies, "About Sabrina? Oh, I care very much". Bruno asks, "Then why no blowup?" Cyrus replies, "Because it didn't mean anything". Bruno asks, "How can you say that knowing how I am?" Cyrus replies, "Because I know how Sabrina is". Bruno continues, "But you know how well I play the game". Cyrus replies, "That's why I need your blood for my tests". Bruno asks, "Is that why I'm indispensable for your experiments?" Cyrus takes a blood sample from him. Bruno asks, "What would you say, Cyrus, if I were to tell you I was conducting an experiment of my own?" Cyrus replies that he wouldn't care. Bruno continues, "What if I were to tell you that my experiment dealt with something that would interest you?" Cyrus replies, "We're not interested in the same things". Bruno continues, "You aren't interested in the occult?" Cyrus replies, "My interests are in science. All I want to do is gain knowledge to benefit mankind". Bruno tells him, "Mine has to do with bringing the dead back to life". Cyrus asks, "Does this have anything to do with your prophecy that Angelique will return?" Bruno replies, "If you won't tell me about your experiment, I won't tell you about mine". Just then, Sabrina comes back down the stairs. She tells Cyrus, "The package has arrived, but the man who brought it insists on seeing you". Cyrus replies, "I can't see every messenger that comes here. Go tell him you're authorized to take the package", but the man, a short, fat balding middle aged man, who has apparently followed Sabrina down, interrupts, "I suggest you see me. I'm Horace Gladstone". Cyrus gasps, "You're Horace Gladstone!?" Gladstone remarks, "I thought you'd want to see me". Cyrus tells Bruno and Sabrina to leave, saying he wants to speak to Gladstone alone. After Bruno and Sabrina leave, Cyrus says to Gladstone, "It wasn't necessary for you to bring the package all the way from Boston yourself". Gladstone replies, "I was interested in meeting the man who was working with this particular chemical synthesis. I may not be as active as I used to be in the chemical field, but I've retained a particular interest in this synthesis. Its inclusion in your work naturally aroused my curiosity, especially as to the aims of your experiment". Cyrus replies, "I don't discuss my work with anyone". Gladstone warns him, "I hope you're aware of the potency of this synthesis". Cyrus replies, "More than you do. Good bye!" But before Gladstone leaves, he warns, "One word of warning. One reason I am no longer active in chemistry is that I was coming closer and closer to truths that are best left unknown".

Bruno is talking on the phone to a travel agent, "No ships from Genoa?...None at all in the last week?...I see! Well, thanks for the information!" Suddenly, he grabs his throat as he starts to strangle. He gasps, "No! No!"

Alexis is in Angelique's room playing "Ode to Angelique" on the piano once again when suddenly Bruno bursts into the room gasping, "Stop it! Stop it! I know you're doing this to me! You and your spells!" Alexis replies, "I don't know what you're talking about". Bruno gasps, "The doll! Before it's too late! You knew I called the travel office, didn't you?... The pain! Please stop the pain!" But the pain suddenly stops. Bruno says, "Thank you! I feel better now!" Alexis tells him, "Please leave, right now!", but Bruno says, "You never sailed to New York from Genoa, did you? There have been no ships from Genoa to New York in the past week! Why did you lie to me?" Alexis replies, "I don't owe you an explanation! Didn't it occur to you that I might have wealthy friends and sailed on a private yacht? Now go, or I'll call someone!" Bruno replies, "I'm not going to leave. My experiment's not over yet. Why can't you just tell me the truth?" Alexis shouts, "I can't stand it anymore! Please leave me alone!"

Cyrus is with Sabrina at the lab. Sabrina remarks, "You're so quiet, and so secretive about your journal". Cyrus promises, "You'll know all you need to know as soon as the time comes". Sabrina finds a jewelry box on the table, opens it and finds a ring inside. She asks, "Cyrus, did you put this here?" Cyrus replies, "What? Oh, the ring? As a matter of fact, I did". Sabrina asks, "Why?" Cyrus replies, "So you'd find it, of course". Sabrina asks, "Is it for ME?" Cyrus replies, "I don't know who else it would be for". Sabrina asks, with some trepidation, "Before I make a fool of myself and hug and kiss you, it's an engagement ring, isn't it?" Cyrus replies that it is. She hugs him and says, "I love you!" Cyrus tells her, "There's one thing I have to warn you about. You know how I am when it comes to my work". Sabrina replies, "I don't mind". Cyrus notes, "Some women would". Sabrina replies, "Your devotion to your work is one of the things I like about you". Cyrus starts to babble on about good and evil. Sabrina, puzzled, asks, "Does this have anything to do with your experiment?" Cyrus replies, "No, it's just an abstraction. No one's found ever an abstraction in a test tube".

Bruno is in a graveyard somewhere. He thinks, "Are you here, or are you somewhere else? I have to know!" He goes into a crypt. One of the tombs has the inscription,

 ANGELIQUE
  COLLINS
1939 - 1969

He takes out some tools and starts to break it open...

In a strange room in the East Wing of Collinwood, Barnabas Collins discovered the existence of another level of time. The people he saw in the room were all people he knew, and yet they were leading completely different lives. Through some mystifying warp in time, Barnabas became part of this other existence. Only to discover that he placed himself in great danger. For a man named William Loomis discovered Barnabas' darkest secret. And now Barnabas Collins lies trapped in a chained coffin. And he has no way of knowing what strange and terrifying things are happening in this world of parallel time.

Bruno hammers at the tomb with a hammer and a pick. Suddenly, he hears a voice behind him shout, "Bruno!" He turns and sees that it's Quentin and Alexis. Quentin remarks, "I didn't think even you would do something like this!" Bruno replies, "I could think of no other way to prove the truth". Quentin orders, "Get out!", but Bruno replies, "I'm going through with this. I'm convinced that this grave is empty!" Quentin threatens, "If you don't leave, I'm going to call the police". Bruno replies, "You wouldn't do that. You wouldn't to open up some things in the past". Alexis asks, "What is he talking about?" Quentin replies, "Nothing. He's just making empty threats". Quentin tells Bruno, "I'll make you an offer to leave the estate and get out of Collinsport. I know you won't leave voluntarily, so I'm going to give you $25,000 (worth about $150,000 in today's dollars!) in cash for the deed to the cottage". Bruno replies, "Let me make a deal with you. Let me open the grave and if there's a body in there, I'll give you the deed, leave town and never come back". Alexis is aghast, "No! I will not have my sister's tomb defiled!" Quentin tells Bruno, "Get out! I'm going to have this tomb sealed, and if I find it's been tampered with, I WILL call the police!" Bruno leaves. Quentin growls, "That man is a parasite!". Alexis tells him, "I don't want to stay here any longer after what's just happened. I'd prefer to come back another time". Quentin replies, "I understand. I'll take you back to Collinwood" and takes her away.

Bruno has gone to the cottage. He grumbles to Cyrus, "If only I had a few more minutes, I would have had that grave opened and found no body in there!" Cyrus tells him, "You believe that woman is Angelique because psychologically you want her to be". Bruno moans, "Why can't you help me? You're a scientist, there must be some way to prove she's Angelique!" Cyrus refuses to do anything to help. Bruno asks, "How long are you going to stay cooped up here in your own little world". Cyrus retorts, "Your world is even narrower. You're the only person in it. Mine, on the other hand, is open to expansion, and expand it will, very soon!" Bruno exclaims, "I'm going to go mad if I don't find out tonight!" and storms off.

At Collinwood, Alexis asks Quentin, "Any word from your wife?" Quentin replies, "No". Alexis asks, "Is there anything I can do to help?" Quentin replies, "No, this is just something I have to work out myself". She tells him, "Good night". Quentin replies, "Good night. I'll be down here if you need me".

Sabrina is in the lab taking care of the rabbits. Horace Gladstone comes down the stairs. Sabrina asks, "How did you get in?" Gladstone replies, "The door was open". Sabrina becomes alarmed, says, "Oh, Cyrus will be very upset with me if he finds out I forgot to lock it! Excuse me!" and runs upstairs to lock the door. Gladstone takes advantage of her absence to unlock a basement door. Sabrina returns. Gladstone remarks, "I take it he isn't here. Any chance he'll be back soon?" Sabrina replies, "No, he has business in town. He won't be back until late tonight. He left me here to close the lab for him". Gladstone asks, "Why would he be so upset the door was open?" Sabrina replies, "His work is very important to him. He considers this his private sanctuary. He's very dedicated to his work". Gladstone remarks, "Yes, I gathered as much in my conversation with him". Sabrina tells him, "I have to close up the lab now". Gladstone tells her, "When you see him, tell him to call me. I'll be at my hotel" and leaves.

Alexis is in Angelique's room brushing her hair. The doors suddenly burst open and Bruno comes barging into the room. Alexis exclaims, "How dare you come here again!" Bruno replies, "And I don't intend to leave! Not until you tell me why you're torturing me like this!" Alexis contemptuously remarks, "I don't think I've ever met anyone like you!" Bruno points out, "That exactly what you said the first time we met 2 years ago!" He whines, "Why are you doing this to me, pretending to be someone you aren't? Without you, life is pointless for me! You've got to tell me why!" Alexis remarks, "I'm beginning to feel sorry for you. Anyone who molds his life around someone coming back from the dead is to be pitied". Bruno replies, "But YOU made me feel that way! You gave me every reason to be! If you will only tell me why you're rejecting me now! I love you more than anything! I love you!" Alexis replies, "I'll tell you one thing, one last time. I am not Angelique!" Bruno replies, "I'll never accept that!" Alexis tells him, "Then you must leave and never come here again!" Bruno refuses to leave. Alexis threatens, "Then I'll have to use force to get you out of here!" Bruno replies, "Then use it!" Alexis leaves.

Horace Gladstone lets himself into Cyrus' lab through the door he had unlocked earlier. He snoops around with a flashlight. He sees Cyrus' roll top desk, pries it open with a crowbar, finds Cyrus' scientific journal, and starts reading it...

Quentin is in the drawing room. Alexis comes into the room and says, "Sorry to disturb you, but that man, Bruno, he's back! Now! In my room!" Bruno appears at the doorway and says, "Ah, so you admit it's YOUR room!" Quentin exclaims, "I told you you were forbidden from ever entering this house!" Bruno asks, "Quentin, isn't it possible she fooled us at the seance and isn't dead?" Quentin replies, "You're mad!", but Bruno continues, "I'm surprised you don't realize who she is! But then you never were as close to her as I was, were you?" Quentin shouts, "GET OUT!" Bruno mockingly says, "The master of Collinwood has spoken!" and leaves, vowing, "We'll meet again! We always do!"

Gladstone reads Cyrus' journal,

 "With each passing day, I get steadily closer to the
 inescapable conclusion that Man is not one, but two, one
 good and one evil. Now I have proof that each of these
 can be housed in separate identities".

Gladstone gasps, "In separate identities!" He hears a door open.

Cyrus comes down the stairs into his lab and turns on the lights. He finds his roll top desk opened, a flashlight and a crowbar lying there. He looks around and calls out, "All right! Come out where I can see you!" Gladstone comes out of hiding, muttering, "This is a trifle embarrassing". Cyrus remarks, "Well, Mr. Gladstone. My intuition told me you couldn't be trusted. How long have you been here?" Gladstone replies, "Long enough to see that I've contributed to your most intriguing experiment. I just couldn't contain my curiosity! Cyrus asks, "Has your curiosity been satisfied?" Gladstone replies, "I'm afraid it hasn't. Your handwriting leaves a lot to be desired. However, I have learned enough. I too share your interest in elevating man. I would like to help you". Cyrus growls, "We share nothing in common! Now leave! I have much work to do!" Gladstone remarks, "I'll let you think about it for a few days. I think you have entered on a lonely and perhaps dangerous course. You may find yourself in need of a friend along the way". Cyrus replies, "I'll keep that in mind. Good night!". Gladstone leaves.

At Collinwood, Alexis comes into the drawing room carrying a tea service. She tells Quentin, "I brought you some tea". She remarks, "I hope we've seen the last of that man Bruno". Quentin replies, "I'm sure we haven't" Alexis asks, "Isn't there any way of getting him off your property?" Quentin replies, "Not according to my lawyer". Alexis remarks, "When he was here, he said mentioned a sťance. Would that have anything to do with my sister's death?" Quentin replies, "You have every right to know everything about your sister, but..." Alexis interrupts, "But you'd rather not talk about it?" Quentin replies, "If you don't mind". Alexis replies, "Of course I don't".

Cyrus is now alone in his lab. He's holding a flask full of some dark liquid. He takes a beaker and pour its contents into the flask and swirls it to mix it. The liquid starts emitting vapor. He pours some of it into a drinking glass, then goes and writes in his journal,

"My theory is ready to be put to the test. I am aware
of the possible potency of the drug I have created and the
danger I face. Perhaps I am risking death, but I am not
afraid".

He is about to drink the liquid but stops when he hears a door. Sabrina comes down the stairs. He remarks, "Oh, Sabrina, what are you doing here?" Sabrina replies, "I was about to ask you the same question. I saw the lights on and came in to check". Cyrus explains, "I'm working late". She tells him, "You look tired. You should get some rest". He promises, "Perhaps I will soon. The experiment is almost over". Sabrina remarks, "It'll be good seeing more of you". He reminds her, "I warned you about me and my work". She replies, "Yes, you're very dedicated to your work. I like that. I don't mind playing second fiddle to your work." He tells her, "Now run along, I have work to do". Sabrina leaves.

Cyrus picks up the glass again and looks at it. He takes a deep breath then downs it with one gulp. Suddenly, he stiffens and drops the glass, then grabs his stomach and groans in pain, then collapses onto the floor in agony.

This is the great house at Collinwood as it looks in a strangely different time. A time existing parallel with our own. But in which people who look familiar to us are actually strangers, leading completely different lives. It was Barnabas Collins who first discovered the existence of this other band of time, and then found his way into it. Soon afterward, a man named William Loomis learned Barnabas' darkest secret. Now Barnabas is chained in a coffin, unable to observe the strange and frightening events occurring in this world of parallel time.

The next morning, Cyrus comes down into the lab dressed in a robe. He appears slightly disoriented. Finding the basement back door wide open, he closes and locks it. The phone rings. Cyrus answers, "Hello?....Hello?...", but there is no response, so he hangs up. He is surprised to find an almost empty liquor bottle on a table. He then finds his glasses, the lenses broken, lying on the floor. He takes a fresh pair from a desk drawer, then finds a note on the desk reading,

"I owe you one hundred dollars

                  John Yeager"

He wonders, "Who is John Yeager? Could he be someone I met last night after I took the compound? But I don't remember anything after I took the compound. What could have gone wrong?" He searches through the pockets some more and finds a bright blue matchbook with the inscription "Eagle Bar". A man comes down the stairs and calls out, "Mr. Longworth? My name is Paxton. I'm from the police. I'd like to ask you a few questions, if you don't mind. I believe you're the fiancť of Sabrina Shaw. She had a very bad scare last night, but she's not physically hurt. Carolyn Loomis found her wandering through the woods. She said she had been attacked by a strange man in her apartment room, but a neighbor heard the commotion and scared him off. I want to know if you left this house at all last night". Cyrus asks, "You can't think it was me!" Paxton replies, "No, you don't fit the description. After we left Miss Shaw's apartment, we got a report of another attacks on Clover St., then at about 3:00 one of a man fitting the description in this neighborhood. He was seen entering this house at exactly 3:10 in the morning. Were you in this house?" Cyrus replies, "Yes, I went to bed about midnight. Did they say what this man looked like?" Paxton says, "Yes, and how he got in. He let himself in with his own key." Cyrus replies, "That's impossible! The only people who have keys to this house are my housekeeper and I." Paxton, "He could have had a skeleton key. Burglars often have those". He continues, "The strange thing is, the stranger wasn't seen leaving this house. He must either still be in the house, or left though an exit we don't know about". Cyrus points out, "There is this other door that leads to the courtyard. I always keep it locked, but I found it wide open this morning". Cyrus asks, "What did this man look like, so I can keep a look out for him". Paxton replies, "He was a big man, very broad in the shoulders, he was very well dressed, and he had a moustache". After Paxton leaves, Cyrus holds the IOU and the matchbox and recalls Paxton's words, "He was a big man, very broad in the shoulders, he was very well dressed, and he had a moustache"

Carolyn is with Sabrina in Sabrina's room. She asks, "Anything I can get you?" Sabrina replies, "I want Cyrus!" Carolyn tells her, "I've been trying to reach him all night. I'll try again". But before she can, there's a knock at the door. It's Cyrus. He tells them, "The police told me what happened!" Sabrina tells him, "It was EVIL! EVIL! It makes no sense! My ring! My ring! I don't understand!", holding up her right hand. Cyrus looks at her hand and gasps, "He took your engagement ring!" Carolyn remarks, "She's been like this all night". Cyrus replies, "I'd better call the druggist and order her a sedative. A good night's sleep will do her a lot of good". He goes to the phone and reaches into his pocket for his address book, but is shocked to find Sabrina's ring in there...

Later, Sabrina is sleeping peacefully. Cyrus tells Carolyn, "There's no need for you to stay here". Carolyn says, "I don't mind", but Cyrus assures her, "She'll be asleep through the night. The sedative works that long". Carolyn replies, "All right, I'll go home, then. I might take a nap myself. Hope everything turns out all right" and leaves. Cyrus thinks to himself, "The man who took the ring had to be me! It couldn't have been anyone else! There's no other way I could have gotten the ring, but why can't I remember anything? And what else did I do last night?"

Carolyn returns to the Old House and is surprised to find Willie dressed nicely. She asks, "What's the occasion? I haven't seen you dressed like that in years". Willie replies, "I ran into Quentin. He invited me to come to Collinwood to meet Angelique's sister Alexis". Carolyn becomes upset, "We can't go through this tacky drama again!" Willie points out, "It's not Angelique. It's her sister". Carolyn counters, "Her TWIN sister! It'll be like Babylon Revisited! Why don't you go through this properly? You should be in the middle of a book, so she can lure you away from it!" Willie replies, "As a matter of fact, I will be in the middle of a book soon, thanks to your strange friend Barnabas Collins! At least my companions are human!" Carolyn replies, "That's not my fault!" Willie asks, "Then why do you want to release him from his coffin so much?" Carolyn gets into an argument with Willie about chaining Barnabas in the coffin, Carolyn saying it's cruel even if he is a vampire. But Willie tells her, "He's going to stay chained in there. He's going to be my way back to the top! If you try to let him out, you'll be sorry!" Carolyn begs, "Please don't go to Collinwood!", but Willie refuses to listen, "I'm invited and I'm going!" Carolyn says, "No good can come from this", but Willie replies, "I've got to prove something to myself. I've got to prove I've lived her down".

Sabrina has a dream about the man taking her ring from her....

Willie is having drinks with Alexis in the drawing room of Collinwood. They talk about Angelique. Willie learns from Alexis that she hadn't had much contact with Angelique for a long time. Willie asks, "Why don't you have dinner with me sometime and I'll tell you all about her. How about tonight?" Alexis begs off, saying she's having dinner with Quentin tonight. Unknown to them, Carolyn is in the foyer eavesdropping on them with a jealous expression on her face. Willie says, "Some other time, then. You know where I can be reached". Alexis replies, "Yes, at the house that bears your name". Willie takes her hands and holds them. Carolyn sees this, and furious, leaves.

Carolyn goes to Sabrina's room but finds she's not there.

Cyrus is in his lab reading the some of the notes he had written the night he had taken the compound,

"I am sure that this compound can change and shape to the
foundation the mind of man. I am certain of it! I am ready
for it! I am not afraid!"

He thinks, "Nothing after that, only this terrible scrawl. I couldn't have written that. Or could I? What sort of condition was I in?" Carolyn comes to the lab. She tells him, "Sabrina's not in her room!" Cyrus replies, "That's impossible! That sedative should have lasted all night!" Carolyn complains, "I thought you were going to stay with her! That's why I left! Why did you leave her alone? What if that man had come after her?" Cyrus says, "We've got to find her!" They quickly leave to do so.

Sabrina is outside the front doors of Collinwood, thinking to herself, "This is where it all began, long ago". She goes in, goes into the drawing room, sits down at the table, puts her hands on the table and says, "Our fingers must touch! The circle must not be broken! Let the sťance begin!"

The great estate of Collinwood in another band of time. A band so similar to our own, and yet so different. Barnabas Collins has reached this other time, hoping desperately to find himself free of his ancient curse. But instead, he is a prisoner, held within this chained coffin, unaware of the drama which goes on around him. On this night, a girl in shock makes a mysterious appearance at Collinwood.

Roger and Elizabeth are walking down the foyer stairs together. Elizabeth says to Roger, "Where can Maggie and Quentin be?" Roger adds, "And Hoffman. It's not like her to leave the house". Elizabeth remarks, "In a way, I'm glad Maggie isn't here. I hope David shows an open mind about her." Roger replies, "I don't think David will ever accept anyone else in place of Angelique." Elizabeth asks, "Are you speaking for David, or yourself?" They go into the drawing room. Sabrina says, "I've been waiting for all of you! Isn't it time for the sťance to begin?" Roger and Elizabeth are shocked. Roger asks, "Sabrina? What sťance? What are you talking about?" Sabrina asks, "Where are the others? Where's Cyrus?" Roger tells her, "There is going to be no sťance tonight". Sabrina protests, "But they planned it! Cyrus and Mrs. Collins!" Elizabeth asks, "Maggie?" Sabrina replies, "Her name is not Maggie! It's Angelique! You know that!" Roger and Elizabeth go out into the foyer to talk. Roger asks, "What happened to her?" The grandfather clock strikes 11:00. Roger gasps, "She thinks this is that night! What else could it be? It was exactly this time six months ago that we gathered in this room!" Elizabeth says, "We've got to do something about it!". Roger replies, "I'll call Cyrus".

Sabrina is lying on a couch in another room. Cyrus is with her. Sabrina complains, "What am I doing here? I want to go back to the sťance!" Cyrus tells her, "That was six months ago!" Sabrina asks, "What are you talking about? YOU planned it! You were so anxious to go to it!" Unable to convince her it's six months later, Cyrus leaves the room. Roger, waiting outside, asks, "What happened to her?" Cyrus tells her about the attack on Sabrina, saying, "It was a great trauma to her", saying it's causing her to think it's the night of the sťance six months ago. Elizabeth is inside with Sabrina. Sabrina asks, "What are they talking about? Is Cyrus trying to talk Mr. Collins into it? Cyrus and Mrs. Collins are so interested in the occult!"

The clock on the mantel at Bruno's house reads 11:30. Cyrus is there with Bruno. Bruno is asking, "At this hour? A summons from the great house of Collinwood? Does the master of Collinwood mind?" Cyrus replies, "Mrs. Stoddard said it would be all right". Bruno remarks, "She's back? Well, a lot has happened at Collinwood while she's been away". Cyrus tells him, "It's an emergency! Sabrina needs help!" He explains that Sabrina was attacked by a strange man earlier, that her mind has reverted to the night of the sťance six months ago. He tells Bruno, "I talked to Dr. Shaw at the hospital and he said if we went through with the sťance again, it might snap her out of it". Bruno asks, "Will that same spirit appear?" Cyrus assures him it will not. Bruno recalls the first sťance, "Angelique was there. She was beautiful, smiling. She knew Quentin hated her interest in the occult..." He decides, "No, we can never relive that night again! That smile on her face, that was her last smile! That night, when her hand touched mine, it was the last time she touched me! At that sťance, Angelique died!" He pauses for a moment then says, "Or did she? I keep wondering. She had many powers." Cyrus asks, "Are you coming to the house or aren't you?" Bruno replies, "Maybe at the sťance we should ask lovely Alexis to sit in for her late sister Angelique". Cyrus gasps, "Bruno!" Bruno continues, "Why not? The dead can't die twice. What if by some miracle, Alexis IS Angelique? Think about it. Going to the sťance where you died, even Angelique couldn't carry that out without showing some sign". Cyrus points out, "We're doing this for Sabrina and not for you!" Bruno replies, "If I go, it'll be for my own purposes!"

Roger is in Angelique's room talking to the portrait, "No one will ever let us forget that night, will they? They want us to relive it again! Sitting there, waiting, waiting for that moment. It will haunt me for the rest of my life!" Alexis comes into the room. Roger sees her and exclaims, "Angelique!!!!!"

Downstairs, Quentin, who's returned, is telling Elizabeth, "No! I won't go through with it!" Elizabeth tells her, "But the doctor says it's necessary to help Sabrina". Quentin says, "No!". Elizabeth says, "If you're worried about Maggie finding out..." Quentin replies, "There's something I've got to tell you about Maggie..."

Back in Angelique's room, Roger is saying, "Her twin?" Alexis replies, "Yes, I'm certain she must have mentioned me". Roger replies, "Yes, but you're so much like her. You move as she did, you speak as she did. Your smile, your eyes. I can't believe you're not the same person" Alexis tells him, "You must. When you get to know me, you'll find out how different I am". She holds hour her hands and says, "Touch me. You'll see I'm not a ghost". Roger takes her hands in his. Alexis assures him, "I am quite real, Roger Collins".

In the drawing room, Quentin has finished telling Elizabeth about Maggie. Elizabeth exclaims, "I cannot believe that Maggie simply left! Maybe you should have asked Alexis to leave!" Quentin pours himself a very large drink and remarks, "It must be this house. Nothing ever goes right in this house". Elizabeth replies, "It's not the house. It's us". Quentin says, "I don't need your moralizing right now". She asks him again about the sťance. He replies, "There isn't going to be a sťance!" Elizabeth asks, "And let the poor girl go on as she is?" Quentin replies, "That's not our responsibility". Elizabeth counters, Perhaps that's our problem. We don't know what our responsibilities are". Roger and Alexis come into the room. Roger introduces Alexis to Elizabeth. Alexis excuses herself to let them talk. As she approaches the door, Sabrina enters and announces, "It's midnight. Isn't that the time you set for the sťance, Angelique? Are we all ready?"

Quentin walks out angrily into the foyer. Alexis comes out after him and says, "I don't understand. What's going on?" At that moment, Cyrus comes in through the front doors bringing Bruno with him. Quentin sees Bruno and shouts, "I thought I told you never to come to this house again!" Bruno replies, "I was told it was an emergency". Cyrus tells Quentin, "If you don't want to do it, at least let us do it without you". Bruno remarks, "Maybe Alexis would like to sit in the seat where your wife sat. I think maybe she'd like to see the circumstances her sister died in". Alexis demands, "Quentin! I'd like to know what he's talking about!"

Inside the drawing room, Sabrina is complaining, "Why am I the only one who knows how necessary this is?" Elizabeth says, "Roger, I think this is necessary too". Roger tells her he's against the idea. They argue about it.

Out in the foyer, Alexis is saying, "I thought my sister died of a stroke!". Quentin replies, "Yes she did, but she died at that sťance. Are you afraid to go through with it?" Alexis says, "I'm willing to, if you don't forbid it". Quentin replies, "No, I won't forbid it, but I won't have anything to do with it!" He tells Bruno, "You can stay for this, but afterwards you are to leave and never come back!" and storms off. Bruno remarks, "This is going to be interesting, very interesting!"

Everyone sits at the table. Bruno remarks to Alexis, "That's right, Alexis! That's where Angelique sat, next to Roger!" An empty chair is set for the missing Quentin. Sabrina announces, "Cyrus will start now!" The sťance starts. Cyrus calls out, "Spirits of the dead! We humbly entreat you! If any of you wish to speak to us, hear our voices! Spirits of the Dead, we want to find out what lies beyond this life we live! Hear me! Hear me! If any of you wishes to communicate with us, you may use any of us as your voice!" Suddenly, Sabrina points to Alexis and says, "She's dying!" then screams, "MURDER! MURDER!" Alexis collapses...

The great estate of Collinwood, looking the same, but existing in another band of time. A time similar to ours, but very different. A time with Barnabas Collins captured, chained in his coffin, unable to change the strange events which whirl around him. This night, there has been an attempt to re-create a sťance, a sťance where Angelique died. And to everyone's horror, a voice from beyond the grave tells them all that Angelique was murdered.

Cyrus takes a very shaken Sabrina to some room in Collinwood. He asks, "Are you all right?" Sabrina replies, "No! What did I say?" Cyrus asks, "Don't you remember?" Sabrina replies, "No, tell me". Suddenly, Quentin comes bursting into the room saying, "So, you had to go through with it, didn't you? Angelique was NOT murdered! She died of a stroke." Sabrina, suddenly remembering, exclaims, "It's true! I remember! It's true! Angelique was murdered! Murdered!" Quentin asks, "Based on what evidence?" Sabrina replies, "That's what the voice said". Cyrus asks, "This voice that you heard, was it the same voice from the first sťance?" Quentin insists, "The voice you heard was imaginary!" Cyrus tells Quentin he believes that there was a voice. They argue about this. Quentin leaves in a huff. Cyrus tells Sabrina, "You've got to tell me everything you know. You're holding something back." Sabrina denies this, but Cyrus keeps insisting, so she finally tells him, "You were also so enamored of Angelique. She was the one who told you about sťances. I was jealous of her. But I also knew she was cruel, demanding. How close were you to Angelique? Did you kill her, Cyrus?" Cyrus exclaims, "No! How could you accuse me of a thing like that?! You said you loved me because I was a gentle man. You can't really believe I'd do that, do you?" Sabrina replies, "Sometimes you seem so attracted to evil." Cyrus says, "I loathe it!" Sabrina counters, "You're attracted to it. That's why you loathe it". Cyrus says, "I did not kill Angelique". Sabrina replies, "But someone did. Someone who was in that room".

In the drawing room, Quentin is telling Alexis, "Sorry about what happened". Alexis exclaims, "Angelique was murdered!" Quentin says, "Now you don't really believe that. The girl was imagining things. She had been attacked, she was hysterical. Alexis, you can't take this seriously!" She replies, "Oh, can't I? Was an autopsy ever performed?" Quentin tells her, "Yes, and the result was a broken blood vessel, a stroke". Alexis says, "But she was so young. Didn't anyone find it strange that someone so young would die of a stroke?" Quentin replies, "Everyone did, but they had to accept it". Alexis asks, "Even my father?" Quentin replies, "Even your father". Alexis, however, continues, "Who killed her? I've got to find out!"

In the foyer, David is asking Quentin, "Why was Aunt Elizabeth crying? I bet it's something Maggie did!" Quentin tells him, "Maggie's gone". David asks, "Maggie's gone?" Quentin replies, "Yes, but she'll be coming back soon". Alexis comes out of the drawing room into the foyer. David exclaims, "Mother! You've come back!" He goes up to her and hugs her, saying, "Mother, I knew you'd come back! I knew you weren't dead!" Quentin tries to explains, "Now Daniel, this is your mother's twin sister, your Aunt Alexis". Daniel asks Alexis, "You're her twin?" Alexis replies, "Yes", but Daniel says, "It's not true! I don't believe it! You won't tell me the truth! You won't admit it!" and runs upstairs. Quentin is about to run after him but Alexis tells him, "Let me! Trust me with him."

Cyrus is still with Sabrina. They are discussing the attack. Sabrina tells Cyrus, "I remember seeing that figure in my dream breaking into my room. That's the last thing I remember. Then I remember seeing woods, then this house. Why did I come here, Cyrus?" Cyrus asks, "How did you feel when this strange figure was in your room?" Sabrina replies, "I was terrified, there was such a feeling of evil. Why did he break into my room?" Cyrus tells her, "I hate to talk about it, the police said he was seen breaking into my house too". Sabrina asks, "Did he take anything?" Cyrus replies, "No". He assures her, "You'll never see him again". Sabrina asks, "How do you know? And why did he take my engagement ring but nothing from your lab?" Cyrus replies, "I don't know". He vows, "I'll find your ring!" Sabrina asks, "Does what happened tonight affect how you feel about me?" Cyrus assures her that it doesn't. He tells her, "You don't have to worry about anything anymore. I'll make sure you'll never have to go through something like this again".

Alexis goes to Daniel's room, where David is looking out the window. She asks him, "You loved your mother very much, didn't you?" Daniel replies, "Yes, but it wasn't always mushy. We had arguments sometimes. But you already know that". Alexis asks, "Now how would I know that? I'm a different person". Daniel, very upset, says, "Just let me think!"

Cyrus is with Sabrina in the foyer, getting ready to leave. Sabrina remarks, "I should go apologize to Mr. Collins about what happened." Cyrus assures her, "That's not necessary", but Sabrina insists, "Yes it is. He'll never forget what happened at the sťance tonight. What have I started, Cyrus?" Cyrus replies, "You didn't start anything. It started long ago, at the first sťance". Sabrina asks, "What's going to happen? Let's get out of this house and never come back. There is evil here, I can feel it, a terrible evil!"

Later, Cyrus is in his lab alone, talking on the telephone, "Yes, yes, it worked very well in the compound, but when tested, there was a serious side effect, it seemed to cause a loss of memory...Would it be possible to reformulate the synthesis to eliminate this amnesia?... Thank you!" He hangs up and looks thoughtfully at the book of matches from the "Eagle Bar".

The Eagle Bar is empty save for the bartender puttering around. The door opens and Cyrus comes in. The bartender greets him, "Good Evening, Sir. What can I do for you?" Cyrus replies, "I'd like a sherry, please". The bartender remarks, "Don't get many calls for sherry in a place like this. But we have some. I'll have to open a bottle, though. Don't think I've seen you here before". Cyrus asks, "Not last night?" The bartender replies, "I wouldn't have noticed, what with what happened here last night". Cyrus asks, "What happened?" The bartender recounts, "This big bruiser came in her, pockets full of money. He stood just where you are. He threw down a hundred dollar bill and asked for a bottle of scotch. That was my first mistake. He drank like no one I've ever seen. He just about finished half the bottle. With every drink, he got meaner. He tried to break Jake Crowe's arm! You know Jake Crowe. Nicest guy in the world. Never has a problem with anyone. They were talking, then they started arguing, then suddenly, this big guy grabs Jake's arm and tries to break it! I tried to stop him, but he hit me with the hardest punch I've ever felt and knocked me down. Then three men tried to tackle him. He just threw them off. He was the strongest man I've ever seen. Then he threw Lefty Blain through that window over there. The guy was nuts! Then he just stood there, waiting to see if anyone else wanted to tangle with him. Nobody did, so he put on his coat and left. Didn't even ask for change for his hundred. I'd hate to be here when he comes back for his change". Cyrus assures him, "He won't". The bartender asks, "How do you know?"

Daniel is asleep in his room. He has a dream... In the dream, he hears a voice call, "Daniel, oh Daniel! Daniel!!" He calls back, "Mother, are you in this room?" The voice does not respond, instead, it laughs. Daniel begs, "Mother, please don't laugh at me! Please let me see you again!" The voice asks, "Can't you see me, Daniel?" Daniel asks, "Where are you?" Finally, he sees Angelique at the window. He tries to get up, but finds that he can't. He cries out, "Mother, I can't move! Come to me, Mother!" Angelique starts to fade away. Daniel begs, "Don't go away!", but Angelique fades into nothingness, leaving only disembodied laughter. Daniel begs, "Mother, please don't laugh at me! Please don't laugh at me!", then screams. He awakens to find Alexis standing over him. Alexis asks, "Daniel, what's wrong?" Daniel replies, "Nothing. It was just a dream". He continues, "You've got to promise me something." Alexis asks, "What?" Daniel replies, "That you won't lie to me." Alexis says, "Of course not". Daniel continues, "I won't tell anyone else, I promise". Alexis asks, "Tell them what?" Daniel replies, "You really are my mother, aren't you? You really are! Tell me, please!". She is about to say something but then notices that Quentin is watching them from the doorway...

The massive towers of Collinwood climb into the night, a sight of once familiar and yet strange, for this is Collinwood in another band of time where all its inhabitants lead other lives. Lives both familiar and strange, like the house itself. But the one man aware of this awesome phenomenon lies trapped in the unremained darkness of a chained coffin. While around him, swirl events that hold a hint of terror yet to come.

Daniel says to Alexis, "You didn't answer my question". Alexis looks over and Quentin and remarks, "He had a nightmare, but he's all right now". Daniel says, "You're not going to answer my question, are you?" Alexis replies, "I'm your Aunt Alexis". She continues, "I think the best thing for us to do is straighten up your bed and get you back to sleep". She fluffs up his pillow, humming "Hush little baby don't you cry" as she does so. Noticing a strange look on Daniel and Quentin's faces, she asks, "What's wrong?" Daniel explains, "You did that exactly like my mother!" Alexis points out, "Straightening up a bed and fluffing up a pillow is pretty universal". Daniel says, "No, not that. The tune you were humming. My mother used to hum the exact tune when you fluffed my pillow". Alexis explains, "We got that from your grandmother. She used to hum this tune when she made a bed, and we both picked it up from her". Daniel says, "I understand". She tells him, "I know how much you wish you mother were alive, but you must learn to face life the way it is".

At the Cottage, Bruno is with a middle aged woman with dark hair. She is Hannah Stokes, aunt to Angelique and Alexis. The cottage is darkened, and she is reading some sort of astrological chart. Bruno asks, "What do you see?" Hannah replies, "The stars are in turmoil....Some alien force is working against you". Bruno asks, "Is this alien force of the spirit world?" Hannah replies, "Yes, and I can anticipate your next question. You want to know if the spirit is that of Angelique, don't you?" Bruno replies, "I swear, that woman at Collinwood is Angelique, but I haven't got proof". Hannah tells him, "I'm afraid I can't be of help today, but tomorrow I may have another tale to tell. I will come again, and you will know which of my nieces is at Collinwood, Alexis or Angelique".

Quentin and Alexis are in the drawing room. Alexis is pruning a potted plant. Alexis is saying, "It will take awhile for Daniel to get to know me...what's wrong?" Quentin lies, "Nothing", but Alexis says, "I know what you thinking. I'm pruning this plant, exactly as you've seen Angelique doing many times. You can blame that on our mother again. She taught us care for plants and flowers, so every time we see one, we care for it and prune it". She asks, "What should I do with the dead leaves?" Quentin replies, "I don't care". Alexis replies, "In that case, I think I'll throw them into the fire" and does so. Quentin remarks, "As a matter of fact, that's what she always did with them".

At the cottage, Bruno says, "I must find out if Alexis is Angelique, but how?" Hannah refuses to elaborate on what she is going to do and leaves. Bruno plays "Ode to Angelique" on the piano.

Daniel is lying awake in bed. Quentin comes in and asks, "You still awake?" Daniel replies, "Yes, I just can't sleep. I just keep going over, and over it in my mind. If you hadn't come when you did, things would be different". Quentin asks, "How?" David explains, "When I asked her if she was my mother, she was just about to answer, and I know the answer would have been yes!"

The next day, Hannah Stokes comes visiting at Collinwood. She complains to Daniel, "You never come to visit your great Aunt. Why?" Daniel replies, "I don't know why", but Hannah says, "I know why. Because your father doesn't want you to". Daniel asks, "You came to see Aunt Alexis, didn't you?" He takes Hannah's coat for her and seeing her pack of Tarot cards sticking out of a pocket, takes them asks, "Oh, you've brought these. Can you read the them for me like you used to?", but then hears a stern voice say, "Put those back where they belong!" He looks and sees Alexis coming down the stairs. Daniel puts the cards back into Hannah's pocket. Alexis comes down the stairs and the two women greet one another - rather coldly. Alexis tells Daniel, "Take your aunt's coat and hang it up". Daniel obediently does so. The two women go into the drawing room to talk. Daniel swipes the Tarot Cards from Hannah's coat and runs upstairs with them.

In the drawing room, Hannah is saying to Alexis, "I can't believe how good you look after all this". Alexis replies, "The death came as quite a surprise to me." Hannah asks, "Is that all you call it? Bruno said something about a sťance where the word 'murder' was mentioned". Alexis, upset, turns her back on Hannah and replies, "I don't want to discuss it". Hannah takes advantage of this to steal Alexis' handkerchief, which is lying on an end table. Alexis excuses herself, saying, "I have many things to do today". Quentin comes into the room. Hannah tells him, "Please don't ask me to stay. I've managed to upset Alexis terribly" and leaves. Quentin asks, "What was that all about?" Alexis replies, "Bruno sent her". Quentin asks, "Why?" Alexis replies, "To harass me, I suppose. He knows I really don't like her. As soon as she entered, she started talking about Angelique and the possibility she was murdered". Quentin tells her, "I'll do everything I can to clear this up as soon as possible".

In Daniel's room, Daniel is playing with Hannah's Tarot cards. Amy remarks, "You don't know what they mean!" Daniel insists, "I do! All it takes is concentration". Hannah comes into the room, saying, "I knew this is where the cards would be!" Amy tells her, "He says he knows how to read them, but he really doesn't!" Hannah looks at the cards Daniel had dealt out and a strange look comes across her face. Daniel asks, "What's the matter?" Hannah lies, "Nothing. Nothing at all". She takes the cards and leaves. Daniel tells Amy, "I'll prove to you I know how to read the cards. I'll tell you which one scared her. Do you remember the card that was upside down here? That card is called the Tower of Destruction".

Hannah is at Bruno's cottage again. Bruno asks, "Tell me, she is Angelique, isn't she?" Hannah pulls out a handkerchief and says, "We will know in a moment. This handkerchief belongs to Alexis. With the aid of some herbs and some bone dust we will soon see. If this handkerchief belongs to one of the undead, it will turn bright red at the end of my incantation". She starts chanting, "Come, death, turn bright red what belongs to you, mark it with your sign, the sign of blood!" The handkerchief suddenly bursts into flames and burns up.

Bruno gasps, "It just burned up! What happened?" Hannah replies, "Some spirit is opposing us and doesn't want us to know what we want to know". She takes out her deck of Tarot cards, saying, "The cards will usually come to my aid in times like this. But I must have silence, complete silence". She starts to deal the cards. Outside, Quentin has arrived at the cottage and is eavesdropping. Hannah studies the cards and announces, "She is here! She is here at Collinwood!" Bruno exclaims, "Then Alexis is Angelique!". Quentin, shocked at hearing this, leaves. Hannah says, "Wait! All I see is that she's here. I don't see what form she's in. The dead can come back in many forms, sometimes physical, sometimes not. All we can say is that Angelique is here. In what form, I cannot say".

Quentin is returning to Collinwood. Outside the front door he pauses and thinks to himself, "Alexis is Angelique? That's not possible! I don't believe Hannah's madness. She can't be Angelique. Angelique is dead! But what I just saw. I wonder..."

Inside in the foyer, Amy is talking on the phone, "I don't want to stay here anymore." Quentin, who's just come in, asks her who she's talking to . She tells him it's her brother Chris. Quentin asks to talk to him. Amy hands the phone to him. Quentin tells Chris, "She's just upset. Let me talk to her". Quentin asks Amy, "Why do you want to leave?" Amy replies, "Because of Alexis. Ever since she's come here, there's been so much trouble. Maggie left because of her!" Quentin tells her, "Let me do something first, then you can decide if you want to live here or with your brother".

Quentin is going to Angelique's room. Just outside the closed doors, he hears "Ode to Angelique" start playing on the piano, then a loud woman's scream. He quickly opens the door to see what's wrong. Inside, Alexis is standing there screaming. Seeing Quentin, she points at the piano and exclaims, "Angelique! She's here! Her spirit! It's here! Look!" The piano is playing all by itself...

Night has returned to Collinwood. But this is the Collinwood that exists in another parallel time, where people have made other choices. Here, Barnabas Collins lies chained in his own coffin, unaware that a drama is unfolding, where all distinctions are lost between the living and the dead.

Quentin enters the East Wing and hears Alexis screaming. The two notice that the piano is playing "Ode To Angelique" by itself, and Alexis is convinced that Angelique has returned.

Quentin refuses to believe that Angelique is back at Collinwood, but Alexis is convinced otherwise. She also informs Quentin that earlier her room smelled like Angelique's favorite perfume. The two also discover a bracelet on top of the piano that wasn't there before. Quentin suggests calling the authorities and have Angelique's body exhumed, but Alexis thinks it is a bad idea because the police will think they are all crazy. The two ponder what to do next.

Sabrina is working in Cyrus' lab and there is a knock at the back door. It's Horace, who has another package for Cyrus. Horace notices that Sabrina's engagement ring is missing, which makes Sabrina upset. Sabrina tries to get rid of him, but Horace says he will wait until Cyrus returns so he can give him the package himself.

Alexis decides to move to another room in the house. As they walk through the house, Alexis feels cold and feels that someone is following them, but there is no one else in the hallway.

Cyrus returns to his lab and signs for the package that Horace has brought him. After Sabrina leaves, Horace says the new chemical has been altered and it will hopefully eliminate the amnesia side-effect. Horace pleads with Cyrus to tell him more about the experiment Cyrus is performing, but Cyrus refuses to tell him anything and kicks him out. Sabrina returns and tells Cyrus she thinks he has been working too hard, and she forces him to go upstairs and take a break. After Cyrus leaves, there is another knock at the back door. This time it's Alexis, who wants to talk about the first sťance where Angelique died. Sabrina tells her she believes she was murdered, but she can't remember who it was. Alexis apologizes for bringing the matter up.

Hannah returns to Collinwood at Quentin's request and asks her to help him find out if there is a spirit haunting the mansion. Soon the lights go out and Hannah starts to choke.

After a few moments, the lights turn back on and Hannah recovers. As Quentin asks what can be done to get rid of the spirit, the desk drawer opens by itself. Inside there is a copy of Bruno's "Ode To Angelique" music sheet that has dried blood on the cover. There is also a note that says, "It must be tonight!" Hannah wants to leave because she is frightened, but Quentin forces her not to say anything to Bruno about what has happened.

Later that night, Quentin and Alexis are talking in the drawing room when the phone rings. It's Hannah, saying she has read her tarot cards and says there is great danger coming to Collinwood. Quentin contemplates abandoning Collinwood, but Alexis vows to remain in the house. After Alexis leaves, Quentin is tormented by unseen forces and hears "Ode To Angelique" playing throughout the house. He runs back into the drawing room and sees something that frightens him.

A slow, descending night shrouds the towers of Collinwood in an ever-deepening dark. But a darkness beyond the dark of night keeps from the eyes of Barnabas Collins and the ever-growing mysteries that haunt the ancient house. For he has found himself not only captive in parallel time, but imprisoned in a chained coffin, ignorant of a new terror the stalks the great estate.

Quentin looks into the drawing room and sees a man of about thirty years of age wearing a gray leisure suit sitting in a chair. Sounding very surprised, Quentin calls out, "Dameon Edwards! What are you doing here?", but Edwards doesn't reply. Noticing that Edwards has a glazed expression in his eyes, Quentin goes up to him, calls out, "Dameon?", and touches him on the shoulder. Dameon Edwards topples onto the floor. Quentin quickly goes to the phone, gets the operator and says, "Get me the Collinsport Hospital! Hurry!", but when he looks back, he sees the Edwards is no longer there. He cancels the call, "Oh, forget it, operator", then, looking very puzzled, goes off in search of Edwards. The foyer clock reads 11:15

The clock now reads 11:45. Having searched the house unsuccessfully for Dameon Edwards, Quentin returns to the drawing room. This time he is surprised to find a man of about thirty-five dressed in butler's clothing straightening things up in the room. He asks, "Trask! Now what are you doing here? When did you get back?" Trask replies, "Less than half an hour ago. Didn't Hoffman get my telegram? I sent her a telegram telling her that the crisis in my brother's family is over and that I'd be back". Quentin replies, "Hoffman's not here right now". Trask asks, "Not here?" Quentin explains, "Even Hoffman needs some time off. She needed the rest, so I sent her to visit some friends. The house has been unsettled lately". Trask apologizes, "Sorry Sir, I apologize for being away at a time you might have needed me. Mind telling me what's been happening?" Quentin asks, "Do you sense any change in the atmosphere around here?" Trask look puzzled. Quentin continues, "Do you remember an old family friend named Dameon Edwards?" Trask replies, "Yes. He visited almost daily for awhile. Then he stopped coming. He hasn't been here in a year or so". Quentin asks, "Would you know what happened to him?" Trask replies, "No. May I ask you a question. Why do you ask?" Quentin lies, "Curiosity, just curiosity".

Amy is outside of Angelique's room, on her hands and knees looking for something. She looks up and is surprised to see Dameon Edwards standing there. She exclaims, "Mr. Edwards! When did you get back to Collinsport? You've been away so long! Where did you go? Every time I asked, no one had an answer. Could you help me find the stone from my ring?" Edwards turns to leave. Amy says, "Wait a minute! Do you know what happened? Angelique died, and Quentin got married again! Let me tell you about everything..." Suddenly, she notices that Edwards is gone...

In the drawing room, Trask is saying, "Mrs. Collins left after only one week?" Quentin replies, "Yes, but she'll return. And Trask, if you see Alexis, please don't say how much she looks like Angelique. She's tired of being reminded of it". Amy comes into the room and asks, "Have you seen Mr. Edwards". Quentin asks, "Mr. Edwards?" Amy replies, "Yes, Mr. Dameon Edwards". Quentin asks, "Why would I have seen him?" Amy replies, "Because I just saw him upstairs." Trask, who's holding a glass, his back to them, convulsively breaks it in shock. Amy explains, "The stone fell out of the ring Chris gave me for my last birthday and I was looking for it". Quentin asks, "Tell me exactly where you saw him". Amy replies, "Outside Angelique's room. He wouldn't talk to me or help me or anything." Quentin asks, "Which way did he go?" She tells him, "I'm not sure. He was acting strangely." Quentin tells her, "Stay here with Trask". Amy asks, "Where are you going?" He replies, "To find Mr. Edwards. He's probably looking for me, so I'd better find out what he wants" and leaves. Trask asks Amy, "Are you sure it was Mr. Edwards you saw?" Amy replies, "Of course I'm sure. Why?" Trask replies, "It's just that we haven't seen Mr. Edwards in such a long time. I wasn't expecting him, that's all"

Quentin is outside Angelique's room. He knocks on the door. There is no answer. He opens the door and goes inside. He is shocked to see Dameon Edwards standing there, exclaiming, "Edwards! What do you want here? Why have you come back?" Edwards vanishes. Quentin goes up the spot where he was standing and finds the floor covered with splashes of blood. He wonders, "Blood! But why? And downstairs, blood on that picture of Bruno. What does it all mean? Murder? Is that what you're trying to tell me, Dameon?"

In the drawing room, Trask asks Amy, "Is it true? Does Alexis look that much like her sister?", but Amy replies, "I'd rather not talk about it. I'm starting to get scared again. So many things have happened here lately". Trask asks, "Things? What things?", but before Amy can answer, Quentin returns. Amy asks, "Did you find Mr. Edwards?" Quentin replies, "No", then tells her, "I've decided to let you stay at the Old House with Carolyn and Mr. Loomis". Amy asks, "Why?" Quentin replies, "You said you wanted to spend some time away from Collinwood, didn't you?" Amy points out, "But I said I wanted to stay with Chris!" Quentin explains, "I called Chris and he said he'd be out of town for a few days". Amy asks, "Are you sure something isn't wrong?" Quentin lies, "Nothing's wrong! Now go up and get packed!" Amy runs upstairs. Quentin tells Trask, "Something IS wrong. I saw Dameon Edwards twice today, and both times he just vanished". Trask gasps, "Vanished, Sir?!" Quentin tells him, "Go up and stay with Amy, and don't let her out of your sight!"

Bruno is in the cottage playing "Ode to Angelique" on the piano. Quentin comes in. Bruno complains, "Don't you believe in knocking on another man's door before entering?" Quentin replies, "Sorry, I forgot the formalities. I believe I have some important information you'd be very interested in". Bruno replies, "I doubt I could be that interested in anything you have to say to me". Quentin coyly says, "Oh, I think you'll be interested in what I have to say. I just saw an old friend of yours tonight - Dameon Edwards". A look of shock appears on Bruno's face and he stammers, "You, uh, saw Dameon Edwards?" Quentin replies, "Twice". Bruno remarks, "Well, I hope you gave him my regards. Did he say where he's been the past year?" Quentin replies, "No". Bruno remarks, "Well, he's never been very talkative". Quentin replies, "And he's even less so now. He's dead. What I saw was a ghost." Bruno says, "Quentin, you've never been superstitious before. Hannah Stokes must be getting to you." Quentin continues, "You knew he was dead, didn't you?" Bruno says, "All I know is that he stopped coming here about a year ago". Quentin continues, "Dameon's spirit is trying to tell us something, I don't know what it is, but I'm going to find out!" Bruno says, "I don't believe in ghosts. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm entertaining someone special, namely, myself". Quentin replies, "Say what you want, but you can't take away that expression on your face when I told you I saw Dameon Edwards!" and leaves.

At Collinwood, Trask and Amy are coming down the stairs, Trask carrying Amy's blue suitcase. Trask suddenly remembers something and tells Amy, "Miss Amy, would you sit in the drawing room please while I go upstairs to get the car keys?" Amy goes and sits in the drawing room while Trask goes back upstairs. Amy feels a draft, so she goes and closes the drawing room window. When she turns back around, she is surprised to see Dameon Edwards standing in the room. She exclaims, "Mr. Edwards! So you didn't go after all! Quentin looked for you but he couldn't find you. What do you want to talk to him about? Quentin's very busy. He has lots of worries, but I'm sure he'll want to talk to you". Dameon Edwards doesn't respond. Amy asks, "What's wrong? Why won't you say anything?" Edwards gestures for her to follow him, then walks out of the drawing room. Amy follows. Edwards heads for the door under the stairs. Amy asks, "Where are you going? Is this a game like you used to play with Daniel and me?" Edwards gestures for her to follow and goes into the door under the stairs. Amy says, "Wait! I don't want to lose you like before!" and follows. Seconds later, Quentin returns through the front doors. He sees Amy's suitcase in the foyer. He goes into the drawing room to find her, but finds it empty. Trask comes back down and tells Quentin, "I had to go get the car keys. I can take Miss Amy into town now if you'd like, Sir". Quentin asks, "Where is Amy?" Trask replies, "I left her in the drawing room". Quentin growls, "She's NOT in the drawing room!" Trask says, "But I left her there, Sir". Quentin angrily says, "You left her in there alone!? I told you to stay with her!" Trask apologizes, "I just went upstairs to get the car keys, Sir". Quentin orders, "Go upstairs and look for her! I'll search down here!" Trask goes upstairs. Quentin goes into the door under the stairs.

Dameon goes down into a dusty room in the basement. Amy follows...

Quentin comes back into the foyer. Trask comes back down and tells him, "She wasn't up there". Quentin growls, "I told you not to leave her alone!" Trask says, "She's got to be in the house somewhere. I'll go upstairs and search further". Quentin mutters, "Damn it!"*

Dameon Edwards walks up to a wall in the basement. Amy, following him, asks, "Where are we going? I don't know if I want to go any further". Dameon Edwards walks into the wall and vanishes. Amy screams... *This was considered obscene in 1970, so they cut the sound here. But it's easy to read his lips...

High above the crashing waves, Collinwood seems to stand serene in the clear night air. But within its walls, there is only mystery and fear. And in the cellar of the Old House, Barnabas Collins lies chained in a coffin, unable to witness the frightening events that take place in the mysterious world of parallel time.

Quentin and Trask are still searching for Amy. In the drawing room, Quentin opens the window and looks outside. Trasks asks, "Would you like me to search the grounds, Sir?" Quentin replies, "No, search the attic." They both go out into the foyer. Trask is about to go upstairs when they notice the knob of the door under the stairs turning. The door opens...and Amy steps into the foyer. Quentin exclaims, "Amy! Where did you go? Why did you leave the drawing room?" Amy replies, "To play a game." Quentin asks, "What kind of game?" Amy replies, "We always used to play games, but they never used to scare me!" Quentin says, "Let's go into the drawing room". They take Amy into the drawing room. Amy explains, "Dameon Edwards, I saw him again! He stood there in the doorway, and he asked me to follow him..." She describes how she followed him down into a room in the basement and how he walked into a wall and vanished. Quentin asks, "Vanished?" Amy replies, "Yes, he went through the wall! He can't really go through walls! He can't!" Quentin tries to reassure her, "You don't have to be afraid. I'd like you to take me to that room. If you're afraid, you don't have to, but please?" Amy replies, "All right, if your really want me to". Trask asks, "Want me to come along, Sir?" Quentin replies, "No, that won't be necessary". Quentin and Amy go downstairs. Trask waits a moment, then leaves through the front door, a sneaky expression on his face.

Amy and Quentin are in the basement. Quentin asks, "Is this the room?" Amy replies that it is. Quentin asks, "Now where is that wall where he disappeared?" Amy points the wall out to him. Quentin goes to the wall and taps on it in several places. He remarks, "Solid enough. Are you sure he walked through this wall?" Amy replies, "Yes! It was terrible!" Quentin inspects the wall for secret latches but doesn't find anything. Amy begs, "Please, Quentin, I don't want to stay here any longer! How can he walk through walls! What kind of man is he? I hope I never see Dameon Edwards again!" Quentin takes her back upstairs.

Trask is at Bruno's cottage, saying, "I'm telling you, Amy saw him! Quentin saw him! If you were wise, you'd leave Collinsport for awhile! If the ghost of Dameon Edwards is really here, you're not safe here!" Bruno asks, "Why?" Trask replies, "You know very well why! You could be in great danger!" Bruno asks, "Wouldn't someone else be in great danger as well? How much is Quentin paying you to get me out of here?" He accuses of Trask of conspiring with Quentin to concoct the ghost story to frighten him away. Trask asks, "How can you say that?!" Bruno replies, "Because you'd do anything for a buck. You're selling, but I'm not buying, and you can tell that to your master at Collinwood!" Trask insists, "There IS a ghost of Dameon Edwards!", but Bruno replies, "There is no ghost!" The phone rings. Bruno lets it ring. Trask asks, "Aren't you going to answer it?" Bruno replies, "Whoever it is, I'm not interested". Trask says, "It might be important". Bruno tells him, "I could care less. Why don't you answer it?" Trask answers the phone and gasps, "It's him! It's Dameon Edwards! He says it's just a matter of time!" Trask asks, "Who is this? Hello? Hello?", then tells Bruno, "He hung up, but I know who it was! It was Dameon Edwards!" Bruno shouts, "It was not Dameon! Stop it!" Trask insists, "It WAS Dameon! I'd know that voice anywhere! He said it was only a matter of time! What are we going to do?" Bruno replies, "First, you're going to stop being hysterical, then we're going to Quentin Collins and put a stop to this". Trask insists, "It was Dameon!", but Bruno says, "Someone's just trying to shake us up, someone's trying to break us, but we're not going to let them do it! We're going to stop Quentin or whoever it is! Now get out of here!" Trask replies, "When you find out I'm telling you the truth, I hope it's not too late" and leaves. The telephone rings again. This time, Bruno answers it and hears someone says, "It's just a matter of time! Just a matter of time!" Bruno asks, "Who is this?", but the voice just repeats, "It's just a matter of time! Just a matter of time!"

Sabrina is with Cyrus at the lab. Sabrina tells Cyrus, "I was hoping you'd ask me to come." Cyrus replies, "It's going to be dull. It'll be business all the time I'm there. I'm just going to see some old colleagues to discuss my experiment and go over some data with them. I'm only going to be gone for a few days at the very most". Sabrina says, "I'll miss you". As they are talking, Sabrina happens to walk over to the desk and sees the IOU. She asks, "John Yaeger? Who's John Yaeger and why does he owe you $100?What does this mean?" Cyrus replies, "Exactly what it looks like. John Yaeger owes me $100." Sabrina asks, "But who's John Yaeger? I've never heard you mention him before". Cyrus explains, "An old friend, the kind of friend who only looks you up when he needs money. Thank you for reminding me that John Yaeger owes me a lot of money!"

At Bruno's cottage, the phone rings again. This time, Bruno unplugs the phone jack from the wall instead of answering it. Suddenly, the piano starts to play "Ode to Angelique" all by itself. Bruno is terrified. He screams, "No! No! I don't believe it! Go away, Dameon! Go back to your grave! Go back to where you belong!" and slams the piano key cover down. The playing stops, but when Bruno looks up, standing there is Dameon Edwards. Bruno exclaims, "Dameon! No! No! Dameon, no!", runs to the door, opens it and flees.

Sabrina is cleaning things up at the lab. Cyrus comes back down holding a flask with some red liquid in it, and a beaker with some white powder in it. He places them on a shelf and tells Sabrina, "It's very late. Why don't you let me finish up?" Sabrina says, "I don't understand. I'm sure you have enough here to do without having to clean up". Cyrus replies, "No, it'll help me relax". Sabrina asks, "Are you trying to get rid of me?" Cyrus replies, "Yes. I want you to go home. You've been working too hard". There's a knock at the basement door. Cyrus opens it. Bruno comes in. Bruno, sounding hysterical, begs, "Cyrus! I've got to talk to you! Can I talk to you alone, for just a minute?" Cyrus replies, "I guess so. Sabrina was just about to leave. You wouldn't mind, would you, Sabrina?" Sabrina replies, "I'll try not to". Cyrus helps her on with her coat and she leaves. Bruno begs, "Cyrus, You've got to let me stay here!" Cyrus says, "I don't understand". Bruno continues, "I can't explain! You've got to trust me! Just let me stay here! I have no other place to go!" Cyrus tells him, "I'm sorry Bruno, but that's impossible." Bruno continues to beg, "There's no other place I can go, Cyrus! Please! Just for a little while!" Cyrus explains, "Bruno, I can't let anyone stay here while I'm working on this experiment". Bruno promises, "I won't come down here. I'll stay upstairs. I won't come anywhere near the lab. Please, Cyrus, you're my last chance!" Cyrus finally gives in, "All right, but don't come into the lab at any time". Bruno promise to stay upstairs. Cyrus takes him upstairs.

Cyrus comes back down and pours some of the red liquid from the flask into the small beaker with the powder. The liquid in the beaker turns pink starts to foam and steam. Cyrus, in a very noble tone, says,

"To bring forward all that is good in man,
to rid him of the impediments of Evil,
to fulfill all that is best in his divided nature!"

then drinks the liquid. Again, he stiffens and drops the beaker, then grabs his abdomen and screams in pain and stumbles around the lab bumping into things*. Finally, he falls into a chair, screaming, "Please! Help me!" He starts to turn green, then back onto a normal color as his face changes shape, and his hair turns jet black, and he grows a black moustache...

*Including a solid-looking brick pillar that moves several inches.

Night at Collinwood, in a time parallel to our own. Barnabas Collins is still the captive of the avaricious author William Loomis, and does not see the mysteries and terrors growing in the countryside around. But could he see, he would witness this night an act that the tips the delicate balance of good and evil, with evil the undisputed victor.

Cyrus gets up. He looks at his hands, the backs of which are now covered with coarse, black hair, then feels his face. At first he seems puzzled, but then he says, "Yes! Yes! I remember who I am! I'm John Yaeger, that's who I am!" He goes to the desk and looks for something but does not find it. He then spies a metal tray with some scientific glassware on it. He sweeps the glassware onto the floor and using the tray as a mirror, looks at himself in it. He then looks around the lab and says contemptuously, "The distinguished scientist, the noble and dedicated Cyrus Longworth. Where are you now, Cyrus?" He recites Cyrus' words,

"To bring forward all that is good in man,
to rid him of the impediments of Evil,
to fulfill all that is best in his divided nature!"

then says, "The best is standing right here, and his name is John Yaeger!" He looks over at an armoire and says, "Well, Cyrus might have forgotten where the key is, but Yaeger remembers!" He gets a key, unlocks the armoire, and looks at himself in a mirror attached to the inside of the door. With satisfaction, he notes, "No clear, honest eyes here! The milk of human kindness doesn't flow through these veins!" He takes a nice suit out, remarking, "Oh, Yaeger! You've got style! You've go flair! Too bad they never caught the man who broke into that clothing store! John Yaeger! This night belongs to you!"

Trask returns to Collinwood, bolting the door after himself. Alexis is coming down the stairs. She asks, "Who are you? What are you doing here?" Trask looks at her and at first, shocked by her resemblance to Angelique, stands there saying nothing, but finally manages to say, "Trask, Madame, the butler. I've been away". Alexis says, "Yes, of course. Did Mr. Collins tell you about me?" Trask replies, "Yes, you are Alexis, the first Mrs. Collins twin sister". She tells him, "I'm looking for Mr. Collins. Do you know where he is?" Trask replies, "Taking Miss Amy to the Old House to stay with Carolyn and Willie Loomis". Alexis remarks, "So, he's taken Hannah Stokes' advice." She then asks, "Trask, is it your habit to bolt the door when Mr. Collins is out?" Trask says, "I can't talk about it". Alexis asks, "Did something happen while I was gone?" Trask at first remains silent, but then blurts out, "Mr. Collins has go to close the house and we've all must leave!" There's a knock at the door. Alexis orders Trask to open it. Trask at first refuses, saying, "No, what if it's...", then changes his mind and opens the door. It's Quentin. Alexis asks, "What's happened? You've got to tell me!" Trask again says, "You've got to close the house!", but Quentin replies emphatically, "I'm NOT going to close the house!". He picks up the telephone. Trask asks, "Who are you calling? The police?" Quentin replies, "No, Cyrus Longworth. He might know what to do".

The phone in Cyrus' lab rings. Yaeger remarks, "Someone's looking for Dr. Longworth! Too bad he's not here! His friends will just have to do without him!" The phone finally stops ringing. Yaeger remarks, "That's better". He opens a safe hidden behind a painting, takes out a bottle of dark liquid labeled, "DO NOT TOUCH" and remarks, "This is here if I need it", and puts it back into the safe. He then says, "But there's something else I need". He goes to the armoire, takes out a walking stick and exclaims, "Of course! I wouldn't want to go anywhere without you, would I?" He presses a button on the cane and a long knife blade comes out of the tip...

At the Eagle, a barmaid named Buffie Harrington is emptying an ashtray. Some fisherman is bothering her, trying to ask her for a date. Buffy tells him, "There's no use hanging around. I'm not going to go out with you. Why don't you go somewhere else?" The man replies, "I like this place. It's nice and peaceful here". Buffie again asks him to leave. The man asks, "You going to make me?" Yaeger, who's just come in, says, "You'll do with the lady wants without being forced to". Buffie sees Yaeger and says, "You again! I don't want any fighting like last time!" Yaeger goes up to the man and asks, "You were just about to leave, weren't you?" The man replies, "No". Yaeger says, "That's strange. I had the distinct impression you were" and attacks the man. They fight for awhile, destroying a lot of stuff in the process. Finally, Yaeger gets the upper hand and, grabbing the man in a hammerlock, throws him out the door, saying, "Don't come back! At least not when I'm here!" The man vows, "I'll get you for this!" Yaeger apologizes to Buffy for what happened. Buffie moans, "Look at all the damage you did! Who's going to pay for it?" Yaeger replies, "I am", but Buffie continues, "I'm going to get fired for this!". Yaeger tells her, "I said I'm going to pay for it". Buffie tells him she doesn't believe him, so he tells her, "I'll be back in a very little while with a very generous check."

At Collinwood, Quentin is showing Trask a drawer in a bureau in the drawing room, saying, "This drawer opened by itself. Inside was a picture of Bruno on some music he had written. It was blood soaked. Later, the drawer was empty. No one could have emptied it, no ordinary person. Now tell me everything you know". Trask replies, "I don't know anything. I was away". Quentin replies, "You weren't away the day Dameon Edwards stopped coming. What does Bruno know about Dameon Edwards' murder?" Trask asks, "Murder?!" Quentin continues, "I have reason to believe Dameon Edwards was murdered, and that Bruno had something to do with it, and that you do too". Trask vehemently denies this. Quentin asks, "Then why did you react the way you did when I said I saw Dameon Edwards? Why did you rush to Bruno's cottage? Now tell me, what do you know about the murder of Dameon Edwards? Why did he take Amy to that room in the cellar?" Trask denies knowing anything. Quentin warns him against trying to leave Collinwood until he solves the murder, saying he'll track him down if he does. Quentin heads for the door. Trask asks, "Where are you going?" Quentin replies, "To find Cyrus Longworth. Maybe he can get to the bottom of this".

John Yaeger returns to the Eagle and gives a check to Buffie Harrington, saying, "I think this will cover all the damages". Buffie looks at the check and asks, "What is this? Some kind of joke? Look at the signature on the check. It says 'Cyrus Longworth'. I used to work at Collinwood and I know Cyrus Longworth, and you're not him". Yaeger tells her that Cyrus is a good friend of his and gave him the check. He pretends to be offended that she thought he was a liar and a forger. He gives her one warning, "You must promise not to say who gave you this check. I don't think Dr. Longworth would want his name mixed up with the events of tonight". Buffie promises not to tell. Yaeger caresses her with the cane and remarks, "Good. I like people who listen to me. People who don't, well, their fate is best left forgotten".

The man Yaeger fought with earlier is walking down an alley. He takes a pack of cigarettes out of his pocket and is about to get a smoke when he hears a voice says, "So, you're going to get me, are you?" He looks up and sees Yaeger there and tells him, "I'm warning you!" Yaeger replies, "I don't like warnings. They sound too much like threats" and starts to beat the man viciously with his cane. He hears someone coming and runs off. Quentin finds the injured man. The man growls, "I'll get him! I swear I will!", but Quentin tells him, "I'd better take you into the Eagle".

Inside the Eagle, Quentin asks the man, "Do you know who he is?" The man gestures towards Buffy and says, "No, but she does". Buffie looks at him and asks, "Have you been fighting again?" Quentin tells her, "You'd better get him a drink", but the man angrily says, "I'll get him!" and leaves. Quentin asks Buffy about the attacker. Buffie tells him, "I don't know his name, but there is someone who might know. That someone is a friend of yours. I thought I'd tell you instead of the police because you were so nice to me when I worked at Collinwood." She shows him the check with Cyrus' signature on it, remarking, "It's probably a forgery". Quentin agrees, "Yes, it probably is" and leaves. Seconds later, Yaeger comes into the bar and tells Buffie he's heard the whole thing. He complains, "I thought you understood that you were not to tell anyone where you got that check. Pity. Now I'll have to teach you to understand". He grabs her by the throat and starts to strangle her.

The great estate of Collinwood in parallel time, where each person follows a new destiny. But Barnabas has not found the peace he wanted so desperately. Instead, he is trapped in a coffin, the prisoner of a half-mad author. He does not know that on this night, a young scientist has taken a potion he believes will eliminate evil from his mind. But instead, has changed him into a strange, violent creature who causes havoc wherever he goes.

Buffy screams, "No! No! Please don't!" Yaeger releases her from the chokehold, but then grabs her arm in a hammerlock. Buffie screams, "Let go!" Yaeger asks, "Why? You're like all the others! You have to be trained!" Buffie replies, "You're hurting me!" Yaeger says, "Only a little. Until you do what I say!" Buffie replies, "Yes! Yes!" Yaeger lets her go and remarks, "Well, now, you've proven you learn quickly". Buffie exclaims, "You're insane!" Yaeger replies, "No, I know how to live, how to make people do what I want. You don't really want to live the way you are, do you?" She asks, "What do you mean?" He tells her, "I want to give you money, furs, riches, everything!" He tells her, "I'll give you time to think things over. Soon, you won't be able to wait for me to come through that door!"

Quentin is with Sabrina at the lab. Quentin asks Sabrina, "Where's Cyrus. His car's gone". Sabrina asks, "Is something wrong?" Quentin tells her about he check, saying he thinks it's a forgery. Sabrina tells him, "I can tell. I balanced Cyrus' checkbook for him only yesterday. He's the only scientist in the world who can't subtract". She takes a look a the checkbook and announces, "Two checks are missing. What is this man like?" Quentin replies, "A rough man. The barmaid who saw him said he wasn't the type of guy Cyrus would associate with". Sabrina wonders, "Wait a minute. Maybe it was John Yaeger. But no friend of Cyrus would come here and steal his checks. Unless something's happened to Cyrus! Maybe this John Yaeger has Cyrus!" Quentin promises, "If he does, I'll find him for you, I promise!"

Buffie is in her apartment. There's a knock at the door. At first she pauses, fearful it might be Yaeger, but then finally calls out, "Who is it?" A voice replies, "Mrs. Duvall". Mrs. Duvall comes in and asks "Don't you have something for me?" Buffie replies, "Here's the rent for this month" and gives her a check. Mrs. Duvall says to Buffie, "Thank you for helping me rent out my four best rooms. I'm glad to see you're using your brains." Buffie, puzzled, asks, "How am I using my brains?" Mrs. Duvall replies, "You're the one who recommended my place to that gentleman". Buffie asks, "What gentleman?" A voice interrupts, "This gentleman!". Buffie looks and sees that it's John Yaeger who's just entered the room. Yaeger says, "Well, Mrs. Duvall, you are one admirable landlady. I hope you don't mind if I have some workmen come up and work on your rooms". The landlady seems very happy to get some free remodeling, saying, "I think you're a lesson to us all". Yaeger remarks, "Yes, especially to Miss Harrington. Maybe she'll learn to appreciate beauty". He takes a painting off the wall and suggests it be destroyed. Buffie, not liking the prospect of living so close to Yaeger, ask Mrs. Duvall for her rent check back, but Mrs. Duvall refuses, saying, "As far as I'm concerned, you're paid for another month". Yaeger asks Mrs. Duvall to go up and clean his rooms. She leaves. Yaeger asks Buffie, "You leaving?" Buffie replies, "Yes". Yaeger tells her, "I suggest you don't. I think you really want to live the way I do. I think you want the excitement. Do you really want to leave?" Buffie admits, "I do, and I don't". The telephone rings. Buffie answers. It's Quentin. Buffie tells him, "I can't talk now...I'm washing my hair..." Quentin assures her, "It won't take long. I just wanted to see if you've seen that man from last night." Buffie lies that she hasn't. Quentin continues, "I'm very worried about Cyrus Longworth." Buffie says, "I don't know anything about him". Quentin tells her, "This is very important...", but Buffie insists, "I don't know anything about the man". After she hangs up, she moans to Yaeger, "I like him, and you made me lie to him! I hate you!" Yaeger remarks, "Not for long!"

Quentin is with Sabrina at the lab. Sabrina is telling him, "Cyrus ALWAYS stays at the same hotel. They say he never made a reservation." Quentin suggests, "Maybe he's staying with friends", but Sabrina says, "No, he's never done that before. He's very methodical. You promised to find him!" Quentin replies, "I think two people know where he is. I can find one of them, at least".

Buffy is in her room packing. With her is the man Yaeger threw out if the Eagle. The man asks, "Why are you going away?" Buffie replies, "Don't ask, Steve." She continues packing, then stops and moans, "Oh, who am I kidding. I only have $13.42 and I'd just end up in Worchester doing the same thing again". Steve asks, "It's that guy, isn't it?" Buffie replies, "Just go away!". Steve vows, "I'll get him!" Buffie tells him, "No you won't". Steve asks, "You make it sound like he's some kind of Superman". Buffie replies, "Maybe he is. I don't think you should try to find out. Get out of here!"

Steve leaves Buffie's apartment building. From the shadows, John Yaeger emerges and quietly follows him...

Steve is walking along the docks. Yaeger is still following him. Finally, Yaeger confronts Steve and remarks, "Pleasant evening, isn't it?" Steve growls, "You're the reason she sent me away!" Yaeger replies, "Yes, I can take credit for that". They start to fight. Yaeger pops the knife out of his cane, but Steve manages to kick it out of his hands and announces, "Now we're even!", but Yaeger says, "I don't think so!", grabs Steve and starts to strangle him. Steve screams, "Help! Help!" and immediately hears police whistles.

Not having had any luck by phone, Quentin goes to question Buffie in person. At first she denies having seen Yaeger, but Quentin continues to pressure her and she finally admits she has, but that he couldn't have kidnapped anyone, else he wouldn't have so much time to bother her.

At the lab, the sound of police whistles is heard outside. Yaeger enter the lab through the basement door thinking to himself, "The antidote! I must have it! The police will track me here! I must be Cyrus Longworth again!" He opens the safe and is about to get the antidote when he hears a voice saying, "Yaeger!". He turns and sees that it's Quentin Collins. Quentin says, "So, you're Yaeger". Yaeger replies, "At your service, Sir". Quentin asks, "Where's Cyrus Longworth?" Yaeger replies, "I was about to ask you the same question". Quentin says, "Don't lie to me." Yaeger replies, "You're a gentleman. I wouldn't lie to a gentleman". Quentin continues, "Where is he? You know!" He looks over and sees the open save. Yaeger says, "Oh, I suppose you're going to accuse me of being a burglar. I can explain. Cyrus gave me the combination to that safe so I could store some valuables there". Quentin again asks, "Where is he?" Yaeger remarks, "You keep asking that." Quentin replies, "I'm going to keep asking until I find out, or until Cyrus Longworth walks down those stairs!"

This is Collinwood as it exists in the strange and disturbing world of parallel time. A world in which Barnabas Collins lies trapped in a chained coffin. The prisoner of a man named Will Loomis, unable to witness or deal with the terrifying events going on around him. Once such event is the effort of a young chemist in Collinsport, to alter the human personality. Separating the good from evil. And he has succeeded, for he has discovered another side to his own personality. One that may change his life.

Yaeger remarks, "You're a persistent man, Mr. Collins, and a good friend to Cyrus Longworth". Quentin asks, "And what are you to him?" Yaeger replies, "We've only been friends for a short while. You'll have to ask him to tell you about that". Quentin points out, "But I don't know where he is". Yaeger says, "Out of town". Quentin reminds him, "You gave that girl a check. It was dated yesterday, the day AFTER Cyrus was supposed to have left town. How do you explain that?" Yaeger just says, "I don't owe you any explanation". Quentin counters, "Maybe you'd like to explain to the police". Yaeger replies, "Go ahead. You'll just be making a fool of yourself". As Quentin turns to get the phone, Yaeger quickly grabs the bottle of antidote and runs out the basement door, locking it. Quentin goes and tries to open the door but finds it locked. He demands, "Open this door!" Sabrina, having heard the commotion, comes down into the lab asking, "What's wrong?" Quentin asks, "Do you have the key to this door?" Sabrina replies, "Yes". Quentin tells her, "Get it! Hurry!" She gives him the key and he opens the door, but Yaeger is gone. Quentin remarks, "He's gone". Sabrina asks, "What happened?" Quentin replies, "That man we talked about the other day.." Sabrina asks, "John Yaeger?" Quentin replies, "When I got here, he was here." Sabrina asks, "How did he get in?" Quentin replies, "He had a key". Sabrina says, "Cyrus would never give anyone a key!" Quentin points out, "The fact that he had a key doesn't man Cyrus gave it to him". Sabrina asks, "What do you mean?" Quentin replies, "Now that I've met this man, I'm as worried about Cyrus as you are. Maybe he has Cyrus". Sabrina says, "Then we should call the police", but Quentin points out, "We have no proof he did anything". At that moment, Cyrus comes walking down the stairs. Quentin says, "Cyrus, we've been very worried about you". Cyrus asks, "Why?" Sabrina tells him, "I tried to call you at the hotel, but they say you were never there". Cyrus explains, "We changed our plans and stayed at a friend's house in Portland." Quentin asks, "You've been in Portland since the night before last?" Cyrus replies, "Yes". Quentin asks, "Cyrus, are you acquainted with a man named John Yaeger?" Cyrus replies, "Yes, why?" Quentin tells him that he found Yaeger in the lab, that he had let himself in with a key. Cyrus tells him, "Yes, I gave it to him". Sabrina exclaims in disbelief, "You gave it to him?!" Cyrus asks, "Why are you so surprised?" Quentin says, "You don't mean to say that man is a friend of yours!" Cyrus replies, "No, but his personality traits make him an ideal subject". Quentin tells him about the check. Cyrus explains, "I gave it to him the day before and post dated it". Quentin remarks, "I stil find it difficult to believe you could associate with such a man, even just professionally. Cyrus, what hold does this man have on you?" Cyrus replies, "I don't know what you mean". Quentin spells it out, "Are you being blackmailed by John Yaeger?" Cyrus replies, "Of course not! My relation with him is only professional! There's nothing to worry about! I can end my relationship with John Yaeger any time I want!" Quentin, not believing this, says, "If I'm right about John Yaeger, feel free to call me at any time" and leaves.

With Quentin gone, Sabrina says, "Cyrus, now that we're alone, I hope you can tell me what really happened here after I left that other night". Cyrus replies, "For the last time, we went to Portland to see a colleague. We conducted an experiment, and I got back early because the experiment failed." Sabrina remarks, "I'm sorry to hear that". Cyrus replies, "Sometimes even failure is rewarding in a way". Sabrina asks, "What do you mean?" Cyrus replies, "Something happened, something I must face up to soon". Sabrina asks, "What?" Cyrus replies, "I can't tell you until my experiments are complete". Sabrina asks, "What about this man Yaeger?" Cyrus asks, "What about him? I think I can handle Yaeger!" Sabrina says, "Whatever you say". Cyrus says, "Sorry for snapping. You know how I feel about my professional life". He warns her, "He'll be back here. I suggest you have nothing to do with him!" Bruno comes down and says, "Cyrus! I've got to talk to you - alone! It's very important!' Sabrina leaves.

Bruno tells Cyrus, "I need your help! You remember Dameon Edwards, don't you?" Cyrus replies, "Yes, he was Angelique's friend. Where did he go to?" Bruno replies, "He didn't go anywhere! He's dead, and his ghost has come back to haunt me!" Cyrus asks, "Why? Could it be you had something to do with his death?" Bruno replies, "No! You know about these things! You know how to exorcise ghosts!" Cyrus replies, "You have no guarantee I would succeed". Bruno begs, "You've got to try!" Cyrus says, "Give me some time to think it over". Bruno tells him, "All right. I'll be waiting upstairs for you".

Quentin returns to Collinwood, where he is greeted by Alexis, "Quentin, I'm glad you're back!" Quentin asks, "Has something happened?" Alexis replies, "No, it's just this house!" Quentin asks, "There hasn't been any more incidents?" Alexis replies, "No. But it's so quiet, like the calm before the storm. I feel as if we were all doomed!"

Bruno is in a bedroom above the lab waiting for Cyrus. He nervously looks around, then takes out a cigarette. He finds he has no matches, so he goes to a dresser and gets some. At the dresser, he sees Dameon Edwards' reflecting in the mirror laughing at him. The image disappears. Bruno looks and sees that there is a fire in the room...

Bruno shouts, "Cyrus! Cyrus! Help me! Somebody help me! The room's on fire!" Cyrus breaks down the door to get in. Seeing the fire, he rips some curtains down from a window in the hallway and comes in and puts out the fire. He asks Bruno, "How did this happen?" Bruno replies, "He started the fire! He's trying to kill me!" Cyrus tells him, "Let's go downstairs for a drink. You need one!"

At Collinwood, Quentin and Alexis are having drinks. Quentin asks, "Feeling better now?" Alexis replies, "Yes". Quentin suggests, "Maybe it would be better for you to go stay in town for a few days", but Alexis replies, "No, I don't I don't think it would be good to run from whatever's plaguing this house. I think we should stay and fight it. Any word about Maggie?" Quentin says, "No, I'm going to call her again". They look at each other passionately and look like they're about to kiss, but Alexis announces, "I think I'll go upstairs. I feel better with you in the house.". Quentin replies, "Good night. I'll be here if you need anything".

At the lab, Bruno moans, "It's no use, Cyrus! There's nothing you can do to help me!" Cyrus asks, "Why do you say that?" Bruno answers, "I asked you for a place to stay because I thought I'd be safe here, but if the spirit can follow me here, I'm not safe anywhere!" Cyrus reminds him, "But a ghost can be exorcised". Bruno replies, "I'm not sure it can. I know why the ghost is back, and who sent it back." Cyrus asks, "Who?" Bruno replies, "Angelique! The woman at Collinwood is not Alexis! It's Angelique, and she came back to avenge her murder!" Cyrus asks, "Did you have anything to do with her murder?" Bruno replies, "No, but maybe she thinks I do. That's the only reason I can think of". Cyrus suggests, "Maybe you should leave Collinsport", but Bruno says, "No! I'm going to visit her and have a showdown with her!" Cyrus points out, "You've already tried that". Bruno replies, "This is different. This time, it's going to be the final showdown - it's gotten to the point where it's her survival or mine!"

At Collinwood, Quentin is talking on the phone, "Jennifer, all I want to know is Maggie still living there...All I want is to talk to her... What do you mean?...How long is this childishness going to go on?... All right...Tell her I called and tell her I love her".

Bruno bursts into Angelique's room. Alexis shouts, "Get out of here!" Bruno replies, "Oh, no, not this time! Not until I find out the TRUTH! I know you're Angelique, and you came back to avenge your murder. That's why you brought back Dameon Edwards, because you know about his death! That's why you brought him back to frighten me into admitting I murdered you! I'm going to prove what you are, a living dead person!" Alexis asks, "How on earth can you do that?" Bruno replies, "Like this - if you're already dead, you can't die again!", grabs her by the throat and starts strangling her...

The great estate of Collinwood, but different now, because the people there live in another band of time. A time which Barnabas Collins hoped would release him from his terrible curse. But once in this parallel time, Barnabas discovered his hope was in vain. Now he lies trapped in this coffin, unable to witness the events which swirl around him. For this night, one man questions whether this woman is truly dead, or whether she walks disguised as another. And he intends to find out.

As Bruno strangles Alexis, he challenges her, "Use your powers on me now! Or do you need a clay doll for that? Call on your false gods to help you!" Quentin comes into the room, sees what's happening and shouts, "Let her go!" Bruno replies, "No!", so Quentin pulls him off and throws him out of the room. He then hugs and comforts the crying Alexis. Alexis cries, "He'll try again, all because he thinks I am Angelique". Quentin tell her, "He won't. Trust me". Alexis asks, "What are you going to do?" Quentin replies, "I'm going to get rid of that man forever! I'm going call my lawyer and get Bruno to see the wisdom of leaving Collinwood". Alexis begs, "Please don't let him come back! He's mad! You know that as well as I do!"

Bruno is down in the drawing room, thinking to himself, "Now why can't that man see the truth? Has she put a spell on him?" Quentin comes into the room and asks, "You never learn, do you?" Bruno replies, "You want the spirit of Dameon Edwards to leave this house as much as I do. You know what's causing this. Angelique always promised she'd be back. You always ridiculed her interest in the occult, but you've seen how fast she's gotten rid of Maggie. Once the new Mrs. Collins was out of the way, she had to get rid of anyone who suspected her, hence, Dameon Edwards". Quentin replies, "Nonsense!" Bruno says, "When Hannah Stokes was here, you did believe something occult was happening. But then you became afraid, you were afraid that Alexis was your wife! If you believe Hannah Stokes, then believe what she told me! Angelique is in this house!" Quentin shouts, "Get out!" Bruno warns, "The spirit of Dameon Edwards will keep returning until you send Angelique back to her grave!" and leaves.

Cyrus is in his lab fiddling with some test tubes. Sabrina tries to talk to him, but he brushes her off. Sabrina grumbles, "That experiment! Always that experiment! What's so fascinating about that experiment?" Cyrus replies, "It just is, that's all". Sabrina complains, "Listen to me for a minute, please! You've been so different since you've come back! I used to feel that I knew everything about you, but now I feel I don't". Cyrus replies, "It's just that I'm growing in ways I haven't before. But Sabrina, there's nothing to be afraid of", but she says, "I'm very afraid!" He hugs her.

Quentin goes into Angelique's room but finds that Alexis isn't there. He notices a note written on blue paper lying on the desk and reads it,

Hannah,

You must meet me in the gazebo at 10:00.
Tell no one!

A

Quentin thinks, "Why would Alexis want to meet Hannah Stokes alone and not want anyone to know? And why did she sign this note 'A' like Angelique used to?" He opens a desk drawer and looks around inside until he finds a paper with the signature "Angelique Collins". He compares the 'A' on the note with the 'A' in Angelique and gasps "They're the same!" Alexis comes into the room. Quentin apologizes for being in the room, "I'm sorry. I thought you'd be in here". Alexis explains, "I was looking for Trask. I have an errand for him to run". She takes the note, which Quentin had put back on the desk, stuffs it into an envelope and leaves to have Trask deliver it. Quentin looks at the portrait of Angelique and thinks, "I've got to find out! I've got to!"

Cyrus is still working at the lab. He hears Sabrina upstairs arguing loudly with a woman, "You can't go down there!" But the woman comes barging down anyway, announcing, "I must talk to him! It's a private matter!" It's Buffie Harrington. Cyrus sends Sabrina back upstairs and asks Buffie, "What can I do for you?" Buffie replies, "It's about a check". She gets the check out of her purse after much searching, shows it to Cyrus and asks, "This might seem like a strange question, but did you sign this check?" Cyrus replies, "Yes, that's my signature". Buffie, sounding surprised, asks, "Then I can cash it?" Cyrus replies, "Yes. That's what checks are for, aren't they?" Buffie asks, "Why did you sign this?" Cyrus replies, "Apparently a friend of mine John Yaeger did some damage at the Eagle". Buffie remarks, "Boy, did he! That friend of yours is EVIL!" Cyrus says, "I wouldn't call him evil. He lives to extremes. He wouldn't hurt anyone deliberately". Buffie exclaims, "You should see my friend Steve! He's in the hospital!" Cyrus replies, "But Steve provoked Yaeger". Buffie remarks, "He tells you everything, doesn't he?" Cyrus continues, "He told me he was very sorry about what happened." Buffie asks, "Did he tell you he rented some rooms where I live?" Cyrus replies, "Yes he did". Buffie asks, "Then why did he just disappear?" Cyrus replies, "Because I sent him away". Buffie asks, "Does he work for you?" Cyrus replies, "You could say that". He takes out a wad of money and tells Buffie, "He gave me this to pay for Steve's hospital bills. Steve probably wouldn't take it from me if he knew I was John Yaeger's friend, but he might take it from you" and gives it to her. Buffie says, "Dr. Longworth, you seem sensitive and kind. Let me tell you something. John Yaeger seems to like me. But sometimes I'm afraid of him." Cyrus tells her, "I wouldn't be if I were you". Buffie suggests, "Maybe if you came with him the next time, then I wouldn't be so afraid. Ormaybe you could come alone. I like quiet men". Cyrus declines, "I don't have the time for levity. My work is very important". Buffie exasperatedly says, "Well, I tried! Good bye, Dr. Longworth". Cyrus says, "Miss Harrington, despite what you've said, you like John Yaeger, don't you?" Buffie replies, "Sometimes, maybe".

After Buffie leaves, Sabrina comes back down and asks, "What did that girl want?" Cyrus replies, "Nothing. She's just a friend of a friend". Sabrina guesses, "John Yaeger! Just who is John Yaeger? Can't you tell me anything?" The phone rings. Cyrus answers. It's Quentin. He tells Cyrus, "I want to see you immediately!" Cyrus tells him, "I'm working", but Quentin is insistent, "Well, stop working. I need you here immediately!" Cyrus says, "If you tell me what you want". Quentin replies, "I want you to help me open a tomb."

Cyrus is at Collinwood in the drawing room with Quentin. He asks, "Open a tomb?!" Quentin replies, "Yes". Cyrus points out, "Quentin, you've always doubted the occult". Quentin replies, "I've changed." Cyrus asks, "You believe Angelique has returned? You were at her autopsy. You saw her buried." Unknown to Cyrus and Quentin, Alexis is in the foyer listening to them. Quentin replies, "If we open the crypt, and there's no body there, then we'll know". Cyrus asks, "And what will you do if the body's not there?" Quentin replies, "I don't know".

Cyrus and Quentin go to the crypt and to the tomb

ANGELIQUE
 COLLINS
1939-1969

They open the tomb and take the coffin out. Alexis comes and cries, "Quentin, please, if you ever loved my sister at all!". Quentin asks, "How did you happen to come here, unless you're Angelique?" Alexis replies, "I heard you two talking, and I came here to stop you from defiling my sister's grave! If you don't, I promise I'll go away". Quentin asks rhetorically, "And will things stop happening when you leave?" and opens the coffin. He and Alexis look into the coffin. Their eyes open wide with surprise...

The great house at Collinwood as it appears in the world of parallel time, running concurrently with our own. A world that has mysteriously opened itself to Barnabas Collins, but soon after he appeared in this time his darkest secret was discovered by a man named William H. Loomis. Now Barnabas Collins lies trapped in a chained coffin, unaware that on this night in a graveyard not far from Collinwood, three people are about to open a coffin, and settle a mystery that has plagued all who live at Collinwood. Did Angelique Collins really die six months before, or does she still live in the guise of her twin sister Alexis?

Quentin, Alexis and Cyrus stare into the coffin, eyes wide open in surprise, for lying there is Angelique's body, perfectly preserved, without a trace of decomposition. Alexis exclaims, "She looks exactly as she did in life!" Quentin gasps, "Dead for over six months, and the body perfectly preserved! Cyrus, you're a scientist. There must be some explanation for this". Cyrus replies, "There's no explanation. There's no scientific reason a body could be so perfectly preserved!". Alexis asks, "Quentin, could you please close the coffin?" Quentin refuses, "No. We must not delay matters. Angelique is dead, but her body doesn't rot. Now for her sake and our peace of mind, the body must be destroyed!" Alexis asks, "How?" Quentin replies, "I'm going to have the body cremated". Alexis exclaims, "No! That's not right! I will fight this legally!" Quentin asks, "How many people will believe she is really dead after what we've seen here?" Alexis points out, "We could keep it secret." She suggests that they lie that they opened Angelique's grave and saw exactly what they expected to see, a decomposing body. Quentin says, "I don't agree with you, but I'll think about it". Alexis asks, "Could you please close the coffin now?" Quentin closes the coffin. Cyrus asks, "Should we put it back in?" Quentin replies, "No, no one ever comes here". Alexis reminds Quentin, "Do you remember why you came here? Do you believe who I am now?" Quentin replies, "You are Alexis Stokes".

At Collinwood, Trask is in the drawing room tending the fire. He hears some wind, so he goes and closes the window. Then he hears the front doors and goes to see what it is. It's Amy. Trask asks, "What are you doing here? You're supposed to be at the Loomis house until Mr. Collins sends for you" Amy replies, "It's lonely there. There's no one to play with." Trask tells her, "Mr. Collins wants you there. Better get back or he'll blame ME for this", but Amy says, "I don't want to go back!" Trask says, "But you can't stay here with things like this". Amy asks, "Things like what?" Trask lies, "Nothing". Amy says, "But it looks like you were going to say something. Did you find out more about Dameon Edwards?" Trask asks, "Why do you ask?" Amy replies, "Just asking, that's all". Trask grabs her and shouts, "That's not all! You've seen him again, haven't you?" He starts to shake her and demands, "Where? Tell me now!" Amy screams, "Let go! You're hurting me!" Trask replies, "I'm not going to let you go until you tell me where you saw Dameon!" Quentin, Alexis and Cyrus return. Quentin asks, "Trask, what are you doing?" Trask lets Amy go. Amy complains, "I just got here and he started to hurt me!" Quentin puts Amy in the drawing room and shuts the doors, then asks Trask, "Have you lost your mind?!" Trask replies, "Sorry, Sir. I'm afraid I lost my head. It's this house. There's an evil presence here. It's been here ever since Dameon Edwards came back". Quentin says, "Get a hold of yourself! How did she get here? Who brought her here?" Trask replies, "She came of her own accord. I was just about to bring her back". Quentin sarcastically remarks, "It sure looked that way", then continues, "You will take her back, after I've talked to her". He goes into the drawing room to talk to Amy.

Outside the drawing room, Alexis sells Trask, "I'd like you to know we've settled everything about Angelique's death. Dr. Longworth, why don't you tell Trask what happened". Cyrus says, "We opened the grave and found Mrs. Collins at rest". Trask protests, "I believe what you say about Mrs. Collins, but there IS a spirit here, something from beyond the grave!". Alexis irritatedly says, "I don't want to discuss that" and sends Trask away. Alexis remarks, "That man is so worked up!". Cyrus replies, "Don't be shocked, but I agree with him. There's something I want to talk to you in private about. Could we go up to your room?" Alexis replies, "Of course", and they go up.

Up in Angelique's room, Cyrus says, "I'd like to discuss Angelique a little further. You were her sister. How well did you really know her?" Alexis replies, "We were never very close. I suppose I could say I never really knew her at all". Cyrus remarks, "Then we here at Collinwood really knew her better than you did. We both had an interest in the occult, but she knew much more about it than I did. She always said she would come back from the dead. That's why she was never afraid of death. I never believed she could - until tonight! I agree with Quentin. The body must be destroyed, or we will never be able to know what's going to happen next".

Quentin is with Amy in the drawing room. Amy is telling Quentin, "I don't want to go back!" Quentin replies, "You keep saying that, but you give no reason". Amy counters, "I HAVE given you a reason", but Quentin says, "I think it's more than that". Amy admits, "Not having any playmates isn't that bad, but there's a spooky feeling there! Something's happening there, but it's not something you can see. All I know know is that there's something happening there that makes me more scared than I've ever been!" Quentin says, "Amy, you've got to have more of an explanation that that", but Amy replies, "I have no explanation!" Quentin tells her, "You've got to try! All people have reason to be afraid. All you have to do is think about it. Is there any time of day or night that you feel this fear the most?" Amy replies, "I feel it all the time when I'm in that house!" Quentin asks, "What about Carolyn and Willie, can't they help you?" Amy replies, "Carolyn's never there, and Willie spends most of his time on his new book". Quentin remarks, "New book? Willie hasn't written anything in five years". Amy insists, "But his is. He's always very busy at it. One time I stood in the doorway watching him and he was so busy he didn't notice me. Here are two pages I got from his wastebasket". She gives two wrinkled pages of paper to Quentin. Quentin reads what is apparently a draft,

"In October of 1965 I wrote what I thought was the definitive
biography of Barnabas Collins, but recently certain facts have
come to my attention that show that book to be mostly fiction.
Now Providence has given me a second chance to set the record
straight in these pages the true facts about the life of Barnabas
Collins..."

Quentin muses, "I wonder what he could have found out. I must ask him".

Alexis has summoned Trask to her room. There, she tells him, "I want you to do something, something I don't want anyone to know about. I want you to drive me to my sister's grave tonight". Trask replies, "I'll have the car waiting out in front".

Trask and Alexis have arrived at the graveyard. Alexis tells Trask to wait for her in the car. Alexis goes into the crypt, opens the coffin and says, "I wonder what your secret it. You certainly do look as you did when you were alive. All I know is that it goes against the natural order of things. I don't really want to do what I am about to do, but Quentin and Cyrus are right. You must be destroyed". She tenderly touches her sister's body. Suddenly, Angelique opens her eyes, smiles, and says, "My dear Alexis! You are all so right! Someone will be destroyed, but it will not be me. It will be YOU!"

The great house at Collinwood as it exists in the mysterious and disturbing world of parallel time. A world which Barnabas Collins was able to enter by way of a warp in time, but a writer named William Loomis learned his dark secret and made him his prisoner. Now, Barnabas lies trapped in a chained coffin, unable to witness or deal with the terrifying events going on around him. On this dark and stormy night, a young woman has returned to the tomb of her dead twin sister, to try and understand why, after six months in the tomb, her body had remained completely preserved.

Angelique sits up in her coffin. Alexis stands there with a look of horror on her face, unable to speak. Finally, she gasps, "It can't be happening! It isn't possible!" Angelique replies, "But it IS happening, dear sister, thanks to you!" Alexis exclaims, "But you're dead! You're dead!" Angelique continues, "There were so many things that didn't interest you. You were always so innocent. I was able to master things you never dreamt of. I knew someone would come and open my tomb. The touch of a human hand was all that I needed! Your touch brought me back!" Alexis remarks, "It's so cold!" Angelique explains, "You will be colder and colder until you die! I need your life-force to live. Look into my eyes! You have only a few minutes to tell me what I need to know". Alexis asks, "What do you mean?" Angelique replies, "We are going to exchange places! I will take your place, and you will take my place in this coffin!" Alexis screams, "NO!!!!!!"

Outside, Trask is wondering what's taking Alexis so long.

Inside the tomb, Angelique has switched places with Alexis. Angelique is standing looking down into the coffin, and Alexis is lying in the coffin. Angelique speaks to the dead Alexis, "How peaceful you look! I'm so grateful that you made my plan work so perfectly!" From outside, Trask calls, "Are you still in there?" Angelique remarks, "Trask! Faithful old Trask! He's become worried because I'm taking so long!" She calls Trask in. He asks, "Is anything wrong?" She replies, "No, why do you ask?" Trask responds, "I thought I heard you talking in here". She explains, "I was just saying a prayer for my sister." Trask asks, "Are you ready to return to Collinwood?" Angelique replies, "Yes. After tonight, I'm looking forward to it".

At Collinwood, Quentin is in the drawing room. The window suddenly blows open. The lights go out. Quentin calls out, "Dameon, is that you? Are you trying to communicate with me? Do you know the secret? Do you know why Angelique's body hasn't deteriorated?" But there is no answer. The lights come back on.

Trask and Angelique come in through the front doors. Angelique dismisses Trask, then goes into the drawing room. Quentin remarks, "I thought you were going to spend the rest of the night in your room". Alexis replies, "No, I went for a short drive." Quentin tells her, "There's something we must discuss. I know it's painful for you, but we must discuss the matter of Angelique". Angelique tells him, "I went to her tomb tonight. I thought things over carefully. Now that I have, I believe you and Cyrus are right. The body of Angelique must be destroyed, and the sooner the better!"

It is the next afternoon. Quentin is in the drawing room with Trask, who's straightening out things in the liquor cabinet. Quentin asks, "Have you been able to reach Cyrus Longworth yet?" Trask replies, "I called the lab and Sabrina said he'd be back at 3:00". Quentin notes, "It's five of three right now". Trask asks, "Have you decided what to wear for dinner at the Conway's?" Quentin asks, "The Conway's?" Trask reminds him, "You said you were going to have dinner with the Conway's tonight". Quentin tells him, "I'm afraid that won't be possible. Tell Mr. Conway and tell him I'll have to be out of town tonight". He calls the lab. Cyrus answers. Quentin says, "Hello? Cyrus, this is Quentin". Cyrus asks, "Quentin, is anything wrong?" Quentin replies, "I would like you to meet me in the cemetery at sunset". Cyrus asks, "Why?" Quentin replies, "I can't talk about it over the phone. I'll talk to you about it when you get there". As soon as Cyrus hangs the phone up, there's a knock at the door. Cyrus calls up, "Who is it?" A voice shouts back, "Chris!" Cyrus goes up, lets Chris in, and brings him back down to the lab, remarking, "I hope it's something that can wait till later. I'm busy working". Chris replies, "Are you becoming an absent-minded professor? You sent me a note. You said if I didn't understand anything, I was to come see you". Cyrus asks, "What don't you understand?" Chris replies, "Something baffles me. You said to transfer $5000 from your account and put it in a new account under the name 'John Yaeger'. Is that some kind of pseudonym?" Cyrus replies, "No, John Yaeger is a man who's agreed to help me with my experiment". Chris remarks, "You're not the kind of man who would lend $5000 to a man he hardly knows. Is there something about this experiment you don't want in the open?" Cyrus asks, "Do you mean is John Yaeger blackmailing me? No. All I want is to have $5000 put in a bank account under John Yaeger's name". Chris tells him, "Tell him to come to my office". Cyrus asks, "Why?" Chris replies, "If I'm to open a bank account for him, I'll need his signature. And I'd like to see what kind of man he is". Cyrus replies, "All right. I'll tell him". Chris remarks, "I'm looking forward to meeting him" and leaves. Cyrus gets out of his lab coat and puts on a dark coat.

Cyrus is at the graveyard with Quentin. He asks, "Quentin, what is this all about?" Quentin replies, "I've decided we must destroy the body of Angelique - tonight!" Cyrus asks, "What about Alexis?" Quentin replies, "She's given her approval. We'll take the coffin outside and put a torch to it". Cyrus remarks, "I thought you were going to have it properly cremated". Quentin explains, "I can't go to the authorities and tell them my wife's body won't rot away". Cyrus says, "I don't agree. Someone might see us". Quentin says, "We've got to take the chance". Cyrus reluctantly agrees. Quentin tells him, "I've got to take one last look at Angelique". He opens the coffin, looks at Alexis and remarks, "Just as beautiful as she always was. Goodbye, Angelique" and closes the coffin. He tells Cyrus, "Let's take it outside!"

Outside, Quentin, using a torch, lights the coffin on fire and watches it burn up.

At Collinwood, in Angelique's room, Angelique is pruning a houseplant. Trask comes in. She asks, "What is it?" He replies, "You wanted me to tell you when Mr. Collins came back. His car just came through the gates". Angelique hands him some dead leaves and tells him, "Destroy these?" Trask takes the leaves, but looks at her with a funny expression on her face. She asks, "Is something wrong?" Trask replies, "It's good to see you've made yourself so at home in the time you've been here. Sometimes it seems as if Angelique never left".

Cyrus and Quentin come in through the front doors. Cyrus tells Quentin, "I've got to go back to the lab. I've got a lot of work to do", but Quentin says, "No, I insist that you stay here and have at least one drink with me and Alexis before you go back to work". Cyrus agrees to do so. Quentin goes upstairs to get Alexis.

Quentin goes up to Angelique's room. Angelique asks, "Quentin, what's wrong?" Quentin replies, "It's all over. The coffin's been burned". Angelique remarks, "I hope we did the right thing". Quentin replies, "I know we did. There's going to be a big difference in the atmosphere here. I hope it'll bring Maggie back." Angelique remarks, "I'd like to meet her in better circumstances". Quentin says, "I hope you two will be good friends", then tells her, "Cyrus Longworth is downstairs. Would you like to come for a drink with us?" Angelique replies, "No, tonight I just want to be by myself".

Cyrus is in the drawing room waiting impatiently. The clock in the foyer strikes the first quarter. Cyrus goes out, glances at the time, then goes back into and paces around impatiently. Suddenly, he doubles over in pain. He looks at his hands and finds that dark hairs have grown on the backs. He goes over and look in mirror and sees John Yaeger staring back at him. He hears Quentin coming down the stairs and quickly closes and locks the drawing room doors. Quentin tries to open the drawing room doors, finds them locked, and calls out, "What is this all about? Cyrus, open the door! Cyrus, are you all right?" Inside, John Yaeger stands there, wondering what to do...

Tape Date: April 23, 1970
Air Date: April 28, 1970 Tuesday
Writer: Joe Caldwell
Director: Lela Swift

Night clouds hang still over the towers of Collinwood, this Collinwood of concurrent, parallel time, where Barnabas Collins continues his captivity in the coffin chained by the writer Will Loomis, while other destinies and dooms await the same people who have the same appearance as those he'd known before. And of all these, that which now grips a young and brilliant doctor threatens a tragedy and a terror unimagined.

Quentin continues to demand, "Cyrus, if you're in there, open the door! Is anything wrong?" Receiving no answer, Quentin shouts, "Trask! Bring me the drawing room keys!" Receiving no answer, he leaves to get them himself.

Inside the drawing room, Yaeger notices the window and starts for it, then thinks to himself, "No, it must appear that I left of my own consent. Of course! I'll write a note!" He uncaps a fountain pen he finds on the desk, gets a piece of paper from a drawer, and writes, "Dear Quentin. Please pardon my leaving. I'll explain later". He is about to leave the note there when something suddenly occurs to him, "Idiot! That's the handwriting I decided to use as John Yaeger. I've got to start again!". He crumbles up the note and writes another one, leaves it on the desk, unlocks the drawing room doors, then goes out the window.

Quentin returns and comes into the drawing room and finds it empty. He looks around and finds the note on the desk, "Sorry I had to leave without saying goodbye. I've just remembered an urgent appointment. I'll explain later. - Cyrus". Amy comes walking into the room. Quentin asks, "What are you doing here?" Amy replies, "Mr. Loomis brought me here but he didn't want to come in". She complains, "Why doesn't anyone want me?" Quentin asks, "What do you mean?" Amy replies, "Willie and Carolyn don't want me at the old house, and you don't want me here!" Quentin tells her, "That's not true. Sorry if I gave you that impression. In fact, I'm glad you've come back. Daniel is returning today. His uncle Roger should be returning with him any moment now". Amy notices a piece of crumpled paper on the floor. She picks it up, remarks, "Someone dropped this" and gives it to Quentin, then leaves. Quentin uncrumples the paper and reads it. A puzzled look comes onto his face. He compares it with the other note and notes, "The handwriting, it's different. It's similar, but different!"

John Yaeger returns to the lab. He gets the antidote from the wall safe, but then thinks, "No! Why should I do this? Why should I be afraid? I am John Yaeger! I am not Cyrus Longworth, that coward. Longworth, he'd take the quick way out, but not me! I love life, and I love adventure, and I'm not afraid! Even if I did change without the potion, what of it? I should take advantage of it!" He takes his cane, pushes the button to unsheathe the knife and exclaims, "I'm John Yaeger and I'm not afraid of anything!!!"

Daniel is talking to Amy outside Angelique's room, "You're just saying that to make me feel bad that I've been away". Amy insists, "No, I really saw Dameon Edwards, and I saw him walk through a wall!" Daniel says, "No you didn't!" Quentin, who's shown up, echoes, "No, you didn't, Amy". Amy insists, "I saw him!", but Quentin reminds her, "We went down into that room and the wall was solid". Amy is upset that no one believes her.

At the lab, Yaeger remarks, "The one thing Cyrus and I share is taste. We both know the best when we see it.", as he admires a landscape painting on the wall. He takes it off the wall and remarks, "I'm sure Cyrus won't mind if I take this for my room". He hears Sabrina call down, "Cyrus, are you down there?" Yaeger quickly exits out the basement door, taking the painting with him. Sabrina comes down saying, "Cyrus, did I hear you down here?" but finds the lab empty.

Yaeger goes to his rented rooms and puts the painting up. There's a knock at the door. Yaeger says, "Come in!" Buffie Harrington comes in. She tells him, "Mrs. Duvall said you were here". She looks around and remarks, "It's going to look very nice here". Yaeger replies, "It's going to look magnificent!" Buffie notices the picture on the wall and remarks, "I see you've already bought a picture. It looks nice". Yaeger again corrects her, "It looks magnificent!". Buffie remarks, "I'd been wondering where you'd disappeared to". Yaeger replies, "I have a few questions to ask you, too". He goes and locks the door, then asks, "Do you mind?" Buffie replies, "Of course not". Yaeger asks, "I don't frighten you, do I?" Buffie replies, "No". Yaeger remarks, "Good. I don't think you've done anything to make you afraid of me, have you?" Buffie doesn't answer. Yaeger prompts her, "Well, have you?"

At the lab, Sabrina is talking on the phone to Quentin, who wants to know if Cyrus is there. She notices that the painting is missing.

Yaeger asks Buffie, "Why did you go to Longworth's lab? You wanted to see if the check had any value, didn't you? You don't trust me, do you?" Buffie lies, "I just went there to thank him". Cyrus remarks, "Why? I gave you the check!" He continues, "I don't expect you trust me since we don't really know one another yet, but it grieves me that you don't like me". Buffie insists, "I do like you. Haven't I proven that to you?" Yaeger says, "But I thought you said you liked quiet men". Buffie asks, "Quiet men?" Yaeger says, "Didn't you say to Cyrus Longworth that you liked quiet men?" Buffie asks, "He told you that?" Yaeger remarks, "A quiet man. Very well. I won't make a sound. Not a sound. No one will hear a thing. Not a single solitary sound". He starts to slap her around.

Yaeger has beaten Buffie. She complains, "You didn't have to do that!" Yaeger replies, "I had to do it. I had to prove that I could be a quiet man. Is that satisfactory?" Buffie begs, "Let me go back to my room". Yaeger replies, "If you insist. But before you go, just to prove that there was no malice in the lesson today, I'd like to let you have this" and gives her Cyrus' painting. Buffie asks, "You'd like me to have this?" Yaeger replies, "Yes, deep down, we both appreciate the beautiful". Buffie thanks him. Yaeger continues, "And I'd like to take you out to dinner". Buffie, incredulous, asks, "You'd like to take me out to dinner?" Yaeger replies, "Yes, to a place with good food and good wine". Buffie asks, "You'd take me to a place like that?" Yaeger at first says yes, then starts laughing hysterically. Buffie asks, "What's wrong?" Yaeger replies, "Did you really think I'd take you out looking like that with bruises on your arms and cuts on your face?" Buffie protests, "But you asked me!" Yaeger replies, "Maybe sometime in the future when you've learned how to take care of yourself! Good night, Miss Harrington!" Buffie leaves.

In the drawing room at Collinwood, Amy is showing Quentin a wrinkled piece of typing paper, explaining, "I took this paper from Mr. Loomis' trash can to draw on". I read it and found out he's writing about a room in the East Wing. I thought he was writing about Angelique's room, but he said it was empty. Is this part of his book about Barnabas". Quentin assures her, "It's just a story". But after Amy leaves, Quentin reads it and gets a strange look on his face.

Yaeger goes back to the lab. He opens the safe and takes the antidote out, but hears someone coming and quickly puts it back into the safe, which he closes. Sabrina comes down into the lab and demands to know, "Who are you? What are you doing here? Who let you in?" Yaeger asks, "Hasn't Cyrus ever told you about his good friend John Yaeger?" Sabrina says, "John Yaeger! I should have known. How did you get in?" Yaeger replies, "With the key Cyrus gave me". He asks her, "Are you always so cold? I sense some emotional release trying to get out". Sabrina warns him, "You'd better leave before Cyrus comes back". Yaeger counters, "But it was Cyrus who told me to wait for him here". Sabrina starts to leave, saying, "Well, if you'd excuse me...", but Yaeger interrupts, "No, I'd like you stay and talk about that emotional release I mentioned earlier", but Sabrina leaves. Yaeger smiles, then takes the antidote back out and takes a swallow.

Quentin goes to the hallway outside Angelique's room. He hears Daniel and Amy talking inside. He opens the door and sees Amy and Daniel in an unfurnished room arguing. "Daniel" is arguing, "Maybe if we stayed and waited something might happen". Amy argues that nothing will. "Daniel" insists, "I heard Dr. Hoffman tell my father Barnabas was trapped in here". Quentin calls out, "Daniel! Amy!", but they continue to argue without appearing to hear him. Quentin shouts, "Amy! Can't you hear me?" A voice from behind him answers, "Of course I can hear you". He turns around and is shocked to see Amy and Daniel standing there. Daniel asks, "We heard you calling us. Is something wrong?"

Tape Date: April 20, 1970
Air Date: April 29, 1970 Wednesday
Writer: Sam Hall
Director: Henry Kaplan
 

The great estate of Collinwood as it exists in parallel time, and two men are in greater danger than they have ever been before. Quentin Collins' wife has returned from the dead and taken the identity of the twin sister she murdered. And Barnabas Collins lies in this coffin, a prisoner of William H. Loomis, his voice stilled. Were he able, Barnabas could explain a mystery that Quentin has just discovered and can not understand.

Quentin looks at them with a shocked look on his face. Daniel asks, "Father, is anything wrong?" Quentin lies, "No, nothing. Nothing at all. What are you two doing here?" Amy replies, "He wanted to see Alexis". Quentin asks, "Where did you two come from?" Daniel replies, "My room. Where is it?" Quentin replies, "I just wanted to know. Why don't you two go and play?" Daniel reminds him, "I wanted to see Alexis!" Quentin replies, "She's resting". He asks, "Amy, when you were at the Loomis house, did you ever hear Mr. Loomis talk about Barnabas Collins?" Amy replies, "No, he never spoke about him, he just wrote about him in those pages I showed you". Quentin sends the children away, then thinks, "Unused. How could it be unused. They were in that room, yet they were also walking down the hall". He opens the doors and is surprised to see the room as it usually is, brightly lit and cheerfully furnished, with "Alexis" sitting there. Seeing the strange expression on Quentin's face, Angelique asks, "What's wrong?" Quentin replies, "A moment ago, I opened that door. The room was empty, the children were in here, dressed in different clothes talking about Barnabas Collins. Then I saw them in the hallway! I'm not hallucinating!" Angelique suggests, "It must be the stress". Quentin says, "So many things have happened here. I thought once Angelique was in her final resting place, this would all stop". Angelique says, "You can't blame THIS on Angelique". Quentin remarks, "Well, at least we seem to be rid of the ghost of Dameon Edwards". Angelique asks, "Dameon Edwards?" Angelique, puzzled, asks, "Dameon Edwards?" Quentin asks, "What's wrong? You act as if you don't know what's been happening around here", which of course she doesn't. She says, "Oh, yes, Dameon Edward", then quickly changes the subject, "Ever since we've learned my sister was murdered, you've done nothing to find the murderer". Quentin replies, "Angelique was NOT murdered. A very disturbed girl said that at a sťance". He notices "Alexis" start to shiver and asks, "What's wrong?" Angelique replies, "I just feel a chill". Quentin asks, "Are you sure you're all right?" Angelique replies, "I'm just cold, that's all". Quentin turns to leave, saying, "When you feel better, maybe you could come down and join me for a glass of brandy". He adds, "And Alexis, if Angelique had been murdered, I'd want to find the murderer as much as you" and leaves. Angelique quickly puts on a shawl and thinks, "I'm so cold! Why?"

Daniel and Amy are playing in a dusty storage room at the old house. Amy is saying, "When I stayed here with Carolyn, we used to play here all the time. Don't you like it?" Daniel replies, "No! Going through trunks is for girls!" Amy points out, "But there are all sorts of things stored here! Clothes, letters..." Daniel asks, "Ever play in the basement?" Amy replies, "No, it's always locked". Daniel says, "It didn't used to be. Anyway, there's a secret passage that goes there from the beach. Want to go?" Amy refuses, "Not at night!" She makes a suggestion, "I saw a sword in here once". Daniel gets excited and asks, "What kind of sword? A foil? A saber?" He starts to look around and finds a stack of paintings leaning against a wall and starts to look through them. Suddenly, he exclaims, "Do you hear that noise? It sounds like a heartbeat!...and it's coming from this picture!" It's the portrait of Barnabas. Daniel reads the label and says, "Amy, look! It says 'Barnabas Collins'. That's the one father was talking about!". Amy comes over and looks at the portrait. As soon as she sets eyes on it, she screams and faints. Daniel shouts, "Amy! Amy, are you all right?" Amy starts to regain consciousness. Daniel asks, "What happened?" Amy replies, "Chained! Trapped! Chained! Trapped!" A man comes into the room and complains, "Hey! You two aren't supposed to be in here!" Amy again says, "Chained! Trapped!" The man asks, "What happened to her?" Daniel replies, "I don't know. She just fainted". The man says, "We'd better get her to Collinwood".

Later at Collinwood, Quentin is asking Daniel, "You weren't just trying to scare her, were you?" Daniel replies, "No!" The man comes into the room. Quentin asks, "What did the doctor say?" The man replies, "He doesn't know. She just keeps repeating two words, 'chained' and 'trapped'". Quentin says, "Thank you, Fred". Fred tells Quentin, "I gotta be getting back to the Old House. Mrs. Loomis asked me to clean the attic" and leaves. Quentin wonders, "There's got to be some reason she fainted. But what is it?"

Fred goes out into the foyer. Angelique is coming down the stairs. Fred remarks, "I've missed seeing you at the Old House, Miss Alexis". Angelique exclaims, "Fred!" Fred asks, "What is it?" Angelique replies, "I feel so cold!" Fred replies, "I know what to do about that!" and embraces her. He asks, "Feel better now?" Angelique replies, "Yes!" Fred remarks, "I've wanted to hold you like this ever since I saw you. Why don't you come and see later?" Angelique says, "I will! Kiss me!", but just as he is about to kiss her, hears the drawing room doors opening and they quickly separate. Quentin comes out and remarks, "Still here, Fred?" Fred replies, "Just leaving, Mr. Collins" and leaves.

Hannah Stokes is in her house, sitting at table with a crystal ball on it. She deals some Tarot cards on the table, then laughs at what she sees. There's a knock at the door. Hannah answers. It's Angelique. Thinking it's Alexis, Hannah remarks, "Well, what an honor! I don't think you've ever been here before. Your sister came here often. There were things she could do here that she couldn't do at the big house." Angelique tells Hannah, "I want my fortune read". Hannah replies, "I thought you didn't believe in the occult". Angelique says, "Perhaps I've changed". Hannah takes up her Tarot cards and deals one out. She announces, "The Tower of Destruction". Then she turns over another card and announces, "The Moon, inverted". She appears shocked. Angelique asks, "What does that mean?", but Hannah just says, "Go! Now!". Angelique insists, "Tell me what the cards mean!" Hannah tells her, "They say you have no future!". Angelique demands, "Read my palm!" Hannah refuses, but Angelique insists, "Read my palm!". Hannah asks, "Then you will go?" Angelique promises, "Yes". Hannah takes a look at her palm and exclaims, "You! You're not Alexis! You're Angelique!"

Angelique remarks, "You knew I would come back". Hannah says, "No! No!" Angelique asks, "Don't you want to know how?" Again Hannah says, "No! I don't want to know!" Angelique says, "I have some things to ask you. Where is Julia Hoffman? I was afraid to ask at Collinwood because it would give me away". Hannah replies, "Quentin gave her a vacation". Angelique continues, "I must get her back. And the most important question. Why is the ghost of Dameon Edwards here?" Hannah says, "You know why!", but before they can discuss the matter further, Angelique suddenly complains, "It's so cold here! You must help me!" Hannah says, "No". Angelique warns her, "You must, or YOU will feel the cold, the cold of the tomb!" Hannah asks, "Why have you come back?" Angelique replies, "Because of Love! I could not bear not having Quentin's love!" Hannah guesses, "You're going to kill him!" Angelique replies, "No, Quentin will want to die when he finds out who murdered me!" Hannah asks, "Murdered?" Angelique replies, "Yes, in the dark, something hard pressed here, then I felt a sharp pain." She again complains, "The cold!" Hannah says, "Tell me more!", but Angelique says, "I feel the cold trying to draw me back to the tomb! I don't have much time left unless you go to the Loomis house and get that man Fred!" Hannah refuses to do so. Angelique warns her, "If I die again, I will come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!"

Quentin is with Amy in the drawing room of Collinwood. Quentin asks Amy, "Feeling better?" Amy replies, "Yes". Quentin asks, "Can you tell me what happened tonight?" Amy replies, "I'm not sure". Quentin tells her, "For me to help you, you've got to tell me what you saw when you looked at that portrait tonight". Amy replies, "I saw his eyes. I felt he needed help". Quentin points out, "Barnabas Collins died almost 200 years ago!" Amy replies, "I know! I know!"

Hannah brings Fred back to her house and leaves him there with Angelique, saying, "I'll be upstairs if you want me". Fred lustfully embraces Angelique, then exclaims, "You're cold!" Angelique commands, "Look at me!" Fred looks at her and says, "You're so beautiful! Ever since the first time I saw you I wanted you!", but then after a moment says, "What's happening to me? I feel so cold!" Angelique commands, "Look at me! You will feel cold, but you must not turn away from me! Kiss me!" Fred kisses her. Suddenly, he stiffens, then collapses onto the floor. Angelique calls, "Hannah! Hannah! I'm all right now! I'm all right!" Hannah comes down. She inspects Fred and exclaims, "He's so cold!" Angelique replies, "And I am warm again". Hannah examines Fred further and says, "He's dead! It's as if he's been dead for hours!" Angelique replies, "This is the way it will be from now on. This the way I must live now, and when Quentin joins me he will live this way too - for eternity!"

The great house of Collinwood in parallel time, and Quentin Collins faces enormous danger, a danger he does not even suspect, and there is no one who can warn him. For Barnabas Collins lies trapped in this coffin, a prisoner of William H. Loomis, unable to affect the events which threaten to bring tragedy to all who live at the mansion. For this woman has returned from the dead, and taken her twin sister's identity, but she has discovered that to sustain the illusion of life, she must take warmth from the living.

Angelique asks, "You're frightened, aren't you, Hannah?" Hannah replies, "Who wouldn't be?" Angelique remarks, "I'm glad your afraid, because you are going to serve me". Hannah starts to say, "Angelique..." but Angelique admonishes her, "Don't call me that, even when we're alone! Now I want you to take the body out and burn it". Hannah asks, "Suppose someone saw me bring him here?" Angelique replies, "He was a loner, a drifter. Anyone who may have seen you will just think he went away". Hannah begs, "Don't leave me with him!", but Angelique says, "I've got to go". Hannah says, "Don't ever come to me again! I do this because I must. You will need warmth again, and I want no part of it!" Angelique picks up Hannah's crystal ball and muses, "You were always so interested in communicating with the dead, now you have me and you're afraid!" Hannah asks, "What about Dameon Edwards? What if he told Quentin how he really died?" Angelique replies, "He will never keep me from having Quentin forever. You will see. You will see!"

Trask is at Bruno. Bruno is asking, "And the body was in that tomb?" Trask replies, "Yes". Bruno says, "I'd like to see it", but Trask tells him, "It's been burned". Bruno muses, "So, the woman at Collinwood IS Alexis". Trask says, "Bruno, we're in trouble! If the ghost of Dameon Edwards is not in the house because of Angelique, then it's there because of US! What are we going to do?" Bruno suggests, "You could leave town". Trask asks, "But where would I go?" Bruno tells him, "Stop worrying about the ghost until we have to!"

Angelique returns to Collinwood. In the foyer, she notices that a telegram on the table. She picks it up, reads that it's addressed to Quentin, and puts it back on the table. She walks a few feet away, pauses, then turns back, picks up and opens the telegram and reads it,

Forgive me for intruding, but I'd like you to know my sister
misses you very much. If you call her this evening, I'm sure
you will be able to talk her into coming back to you. This
is the time.
                                            Jennifer Evans

Suddenly, she hears a voice call out, "Alexis!" She looks up and sees Quentin on the landing. She quickly puts the telegram behind her back. Quentin comes down the stairs. Hoping Quentin didn't see the telegram, Angelique says, "I was just thinking of you". Quentin asks, "Pleasant thought?" Alexis replies, "Yes". Quentin says, "Thanks. I need them". Angelique asks, "Has anything happened?" Quentin replies, "No, the house is very quiet. Come and have a brandy with me". Angelique declines, "There's something I have to do", but Quentin says, "Do it later. The perfect guest always agrees with the host!" Angelique smiles and says, "All right, I'll be the perfect guest". Quentin goes into the drawing room. Angelique, relieved that Quentin did not see the telegram, takes it out of hiding and crumples it up. She goes into the drawing room where she tosses the telegram into the fire as Quentin has his back turned pouring the drinks. Angelique remarks, "I feel so at home here now". Quentin says, "I'm glad". Angelique remarks, "Are you? I'm surprised. Angelique used to love this house so". Quentin gets a funny expression on his face. Angelique asks, "Oh, it still hurts to mention her? Would you prefer to talk about Maggie? I don't know how she could ever leave this house!" Quentin asks, "Why all this talk about Maggie?" Angelique replies, "Perhaps by understanding her, I'll be able to understand you". Quentin remarks, "Maggie is very childlike, a very innocent creature". Angelique says, "Not at all like Angelique. Even when she was a child. she was so sophisticated. I was very surprised to hear you had married again". Quentin asks, "Were you?" Angelique says, "I didn't think you could ever find anyone who could measure up to Angelique. What are you going to do? Call her?" Quentin growls, "No! I'm never going to call or write to her again until she writes or calls me!" Angelique picks up a statue from a table and places it on the mantel. Quentin asks, "How did you know to put it there? Angelique bought it just for that very spot". Angelique replies, "I don't know. It just seemed to look right there. You're not thinking I'm Angelique again, are you?" Quentin replies, "No, a week ago I might have, but not now". Suddenly, the lights go out and a disembodied voice asks, "Do you know who I am?" Quentin exclaims, "Dameon!" and embraces Angelique. The voice repeats, "You know who I am, don't you, Quentin?" Quentin asks, "Why don't you appear to me? What do you want from us?" The voice replies, "She knows! She knows!" The lights come back on. Angelique says, "No, I don't! I swear it! Why is he here? Maybe he's got me confused with Angelique!" Quentin asks, "Why do you say that? Why would he hate Angelique". Angelique lies, "I would have no knowledge of that". Quentin remarks, "Of course you wouldn't. I used to ridicule Angelique's belief in the occult, but I think he knowledge could help us now". Trask comes into the room and asks, "What is it, Sir?" Quentin replies, "He's back. Dameon Edward's back. Perhaps now you can tell us why his spirit cannot rest". Trask replies, "I find it as much a mystery as you do, Sir". Quentin, not quite believing him, says, "I'm going to take Alexis upstairs. I'll be here if you wish to say anything more".

After Quentin and Alexis leaves, Trask looks around the drawing room and calls out, "Dameon! Dameon! Give me a sign you can hear me! I didn't kill you, Dameon, I swear! It's Bruno you should be after! Bruno! Can you hear me, Dameon?"

Quentin takes Angelique up to her room. Soon after he leaves, Bruno comes into the room. Angelique asks, "What do you want?" Bruno looks at the portrait and say, "She put passion in my music. The music critics don't notice it's gone yet". He turns to Angelique and says, "I came here to apologize. When I saw you, I thought Angelique had returned. I was wrong". Angelique replies, "Glad to hear that?" Bruno asks, "Then can we be friends?" Angelique snaps, "Can you ever be friends with anyone, Bruno?", then quickly apologizes, "Sorry, that was uncalled for. You took a great risk in coming here". Bruno says, "I find you very charming". Angelique replies, "And perhaps in time I'll find you very charming".

Quentin is interrogating Trask again. Trask begs, "Please don't keep asking me! If I knew anything about Dameon Edwards, I would have told you!". Quentin remarks, "There must be a reason, Trask". Trask replies, "You've got to find out, Sir!".

Amy stares at the portrait of Barnbas.

Hannah returns home. The phone rings. She answers it. It's Angelique. She tells Hannah, "You must come here! I need your help. It's Dameon Edwards". Hannah protests, "I can do nothing about Dameon Edwards. His spirit is too powerful". Angelique replies, "But I can." Hannah remarks, "Well, do it". Angelique says, "And risk being exposed? Even Bruno believes I'm Alexis now. They will think you are doing the exorcism. I will do it through you. You must come before Quentin finds out!"

Quentin falls asleep on the sofa in the drawing room. He starts to dream...

Quentin hears a voice calling, "Quentin! Quentin Collins! You must come to me! You must know! You must know!" Quentin asks, "Where do you want me to go?" The voice replies, "I am at the door". Quentin looks and sees a light floating there. The voice continues, "Follow my spirit! Follow it!" Quentin gets up and heads for it. The voice continues, "Yes! Yes! Follow me! Follow me!" Quentin follows the light out into the foyer, then up the stairs. Quentin follows the light up to an upstairs hallway. The light turns into Dameon Edwards' ghost. It tells Quentin, "I am here, Quentin! You must see! Come to the door!" Quentin asks, "What do you want me to see?" The ghost replies, "I want for you to see how it will all end!" Quentin opens the door to a storage room and sees the feet of a man hanging from the ceiling. The ghost tells him, "Yes, Quentin! It is YOU!" Quentin goes up to the body and finds a note near it. He reads the note:

"I had to do this to be with the one I love".

The ghost laughs hysterically.
