The Great House at Collinwood in the dark and disturbing world of Parallel Time. Here, Barnabas Collins has discovered that one evil woman has set out to destroy Quentin and Maggie Collins. Barnabas knows that the woman who calls herself Alexis, but is really Angelique, will stop at nothing to achieve her goal. On this night he has found what he believes to be a way of sending Angelique back to her grave.

At the old house, Barnabas tells Julia that he has found Roxanne and put her back in the secret room and that he thinks it very important that they find a man named "Claude North", that this man must be very important to Roxanne, that it was the name on the sketch of her. He adds that he found Roxanne in front of a gravestone bearing the name "Claude North", but that that couldn't have been the man because he died in the 19th century and the picture was obviously contemporary. He theorizes that Roxanne must just have stopped there because of the name. There's a knock at the door. Julia goes and hides in the secret room behind the bookcase and Barnabas opens the door. It's Inspector Hamilton. He tells Barnabas he has a few questions he'd like to ask about Willie Loomis's death and asks for Carolyn. Barnabas tells him that she's been under a lot of stress and shouldn't be bothered, but Carolyn comes down the stairs and tells him it's OK. The inspector asks if there's any possibility that Willie's death was not accidental, that he may have been pushed. Carolyn tells him yes, he WAS pushed... pushed by stress, by all the strange things that have been happening at Collinwood. The inspector tells them he's also investigating the death of Angelique and is questioning everyone who was at Collinwood at the time. He adds that there's one person he especially looks forward to talking to, Julia Hoffman, whom he says is a good friend of his, who he met while she was working for the Richardson's, but hasn't seen since then. After the Inspector leaves, Julia comes out and tells Barnabas she's worried about the Inspector questioning her. She tells him it's bad enough he's going to ask about the sťance, but what if he wants to talk about old times? Julia decides to get it over with.

Julia goes to Collinwood, where she is questioned by Inspector Hamilton. Questioned about the sťance, she tells him she didn't really see much, that she was in the servant quarters and didn't get to the drawing room until Angelique was already dead. The Inspector then starts to talk about old times and mentions how much the Richardson's always liked her, and how much his wife Jane always liked her. Julia asks, "And how is Jane?". The inspector is shocked and tells her that Jane has been dead for three years and that she should know that, that she attended the funeral. He asks Julia what's wrong, that something seems different about her, that he noticed it on first seeing her when she didn't give him the greeting she always used to give him, as if she didn't remember it. She tells him of course she remembers it. He asks her what it is. She doesn't say anything. He tells her she doesn't remember, that she must be under a lot of stress....

Roger tells 'Alexis' he is bothered by the Inspector asking do many questions about Angelique's death and wonders why. Angelique suggests that maybe there's new evidence.

Julia returns to the old house and tells Barnabas that her meeting with the Inspector was a disaster, that he knew there was something wrong with her. Barnabas tells her not to worry about it, that it's no problem, unless Angelique finds out about it.

Inspector Hamilton goes to Angelique's room and questions her. He shocks her by telling her he suspects her of being an accessory of murder. She asks him what he means. He tells her he had gotten an order to exhume Angelique's body and found that there was nothing in the tomb. He tells her he didn't know what to make of this until he read a cryptic entry in Cyrus's journal that it had been taken out and burned. He tells her that the entry was difficult to understand, but that it mentioned Quentin and her. He accuses her of being involved in this and says the reason is obvious: to cover up evidence of Angelique's murder. 'Alexis' responds that he's wrong, that it was Cyrus and Quentin that burned Angelique's body, that she had nothing to do with it, that they did it because it was still fresh after six months and that Angelique was involved with the occult when she was alive and had promised to return from the dead. Inspector Hamilton remarks that Julia must be under a lot of stress and tells her about Julia somehow forgetting that his wife had died even though she had attended her funeral.

The next morning, Carolyn walks into the drawing room holding a brandy snifter, already drunk. She pours herself another drink. Roger, in the room reading a newspaper, reprimands her for drinking so early. She responds that she needs to drink because of all the secrets she knows, that he knows a secret he would really be interested in. He asks her what it means. She tells him she can prove that Alexis is Angelique. Outside, there's a shadow on the drawing room doors, cast by someone who's eavesdropping...

Parallel Time at Collinwood. A dark, hazy morning with the fog rolling in from the sea. And the Great House, with its many secrets, seems more ominous than ever before. For there are many who want to know what its secrets are. Secrets that may mean the difference between life and death for the person who knows them.

Roger tells her that that's ridiculous. Outside, Amy comes into the foyer and sees Trask standing by the door and asks him what he's doing. He tells her to leave and she does. Carolyn tells Roger she can prove it. He asks her how, but she replies that she can't because to do so she would have to reveal another secret she can't reveal. Outside, Angelique catches Trask and asks him what he's doing. He just stares at her. She asks him what's wrong. He just replies "Nothing" and leaves. She goes into the drawing room. Roger and Carolyn stop talking. 'Alexis' asks them what they're talking about. Carolyn remarks, "About your sister's death", leaves and exits through the front doors. Trask follows her. In the drawing room, Roger stares strangely at 'Alexis' and she wonders why.

Trasks follows Carolyn to the old house and tells her he heard what she said to Roger and asks her to explain. She asks why he wants to know. When he doesn't tell her, she laughs that he must have been in love with her, like everyone else. She refuses to tell him anything.

Later, in the drawing room, Elizabeth is talking to Angelique. She tells her she's been hearing footsteps in the middle of the night and that she thinks Quentin has returned to Collinwood and is hiding somewhere. Carolyn comes in and starts to talk to them. She is obviously very drunk. Elizabeth asks to talk to Carolyn alone and Angelique leaves. Carolyn drunkenly tells Elizabeth that she is very relieved. Elizabeth is shocked, thinking she is talking about Willie's death, but Carolyn tells her it's not about that. She tells her she had thought is was she who had murdered Angelique, but now she knows that it wasn't her. Elizabeth is shocked. Carolyn explains that she had remembered seeing her hatpin next to Angelique's body at the sťance and thought it had implicated her as the murderer, but now knows it was someone else but can't tell her who it is but that she'll do something about it tonight, that there's another secret that walks and talks and tells her what to do. Outside, Roger is eavesdropping. From the room under the stairs, someone is watching Roger and also eavesdropping. The eavesdropper under the stairs leaves and Roger hears him. Roger wonders who it could have been. Quentin, perhaps?

In the kitchen, Trask is sharpening a kitchen knife. Amy comes in and tells him she's got to tell him something. He asks what. She tells him that she thinks there's someone hiding in the tower room, that she's heard footsteps. Trasks asks why she's telling him. She replies that Roger wouldn't believe her. He puts the knife down on the counter and tells her he'll go investigate.

Elizabeth discusses Carolyn's strange behavior with Roger. Roger suggests that she has become crazy and suggests that she be institutionalized. This angers Elizabeth.

Trask goes upstairs and is about to go into the tower room, but just as he is about to open the door, Carolyn appears and orders him to leave. Trask tells him about Amy hearing noises in here, but Carolyn tells him that it's Willie's spirit.

Elizabeth goes into the kitchen to look for Trask and doesn't find him. Amy comes in and Elizabeth asks her if she's seen Trask. Amy replies that she last saw him an hour ago. She notices that the knife on the counter is gone...

Carolyn is in the tower room. Someone comes in and Carolyn says, "I've been expecting you". The person pulls out a knife and raises it to strike. Carolyn screams...

Collinwood in Parallel Time. And tonight in one of the rooms of the Great House, a tragedy is occurring, which will affect the lives of all who live here. And in the drawing room, two women chat, not knowing.

Roger hears Carolyn's screams and tells Julia and Elizabeth. Upon investigation, Carolyn is found dead. Elizabeth, distraught, demands that Roger go with her to select a spot in the family tomb for her immediately.

A mysterious man who looks like the one who killed Carolyn goes into the Collins Tomb and goes into the secret room. He hears noises outside. It is Roger and Elizabeth. The man draws a knife and prepares for the worst, but after Elizabeth selects a spot for Carolyn, she and Roger leave.

Julia, thinking Angelique must be behind Carolyn's death, decides to do something about. She decides she must bring Roxanne, who is now in a makeshift lab in the basement, to semi consciousness to weaken Angelique (but not to full consciousness as it would kill Angelique and ensure that Quentin, with the real culprit dead, be convicted for murder).

Elizabeth takes Roger to the old house. Convinced that Carolyn really did know who the murderer was, as she had claimed when drunk, she searches through the desk to see if she wrote it down anywhere. She finds a paper reading, "If anything happens to me, it is because I have proof he...". Roger is convinced she must mean that she has proof Quentin killed Angelique. Elizabeth disagrees.

Julia decides to use on Roxanne the treatment that brought Adam and Eve to life. She carefully sets the dials to bring her only to semi consciousness. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work and Julia leaves.

The mysterious man sneaks into the old house and starts to snoop around.

Julia returns to Collinwood and finds Elizabeth even more distraught. Roger explains that the police had scoured the grounds and found two things: the murder knife and a pair of gloves. The gloves are Quentin's, given to him by Elizabeth the previous Christmas...

Roxanne awakens, gets off the gurney and starts to walk around.

The mysterious man tries the door to the basement but finds it locked. He turns and prepares to leave but hears a noise coming from the basement. The basement doors open and Roxanne comes out. She sees the man and raises her arms in a welcoming gesture...

The Great House at Collinwood in the dark and disturbing world of Parallel Time. In this time, Angelique Collins has mysteriously returned from the grave, and has spread fear and terror throughout the Collins family. Barnabas Collins has learned that Angelique's survival is linked to the existence of a strange young woman and a man he has not yet seen. A man who will soon become his dedicated enemy.

The man, whose face we finally see, raises his arms too and they hug. The man tries to talk to her but finds that she cannot speak. He wonders what's wrong with her and tries to jog her mind by saying his name, "I am Claude North". When this does not work, he shows her his knife, saying "Surely you must remember this". She seems to vaguely remember it, but does not speak. The man remarks, "You remember it, but it does not have the effect it used to have on you".

Barnabas is at Collinwood, helping out by answering the phone and telling someone that Elizabeth is under heavy sedation and isn't available. Maggie comes down looking rather frantic. Barnabas asks what's wrong. Maggie tells him that something's wrong with Alexis, that she suddenly got very weak and faint and asked her to phone her father. Barnabas quickly excuses himself and leaves.

At the old house, Claude North tries to hypnotize Roxanne to bring her back to normal, but finds that it doesn't work. He angrily exclaims, "What did Stokes do to you? I don't care about the deal I made with him. I'll give him his money back for you...". He hears a noise and quickly hides in the room to the left of the fireplace. Barnabas comes in, sees Roxanne standing there and wonders what she's doing up here. He sees the North's knife on the desk, realizes that someone's been here and quickly takes Roxanne back down to the basement. North leaves, vowing to come back for Roxanne. Barnabas comes back upstairs and is shocked to find the knife gone. He calls Buffie Harrington and tells her he has someone he wants to stay at her apartment for awhile...

Maggie, in her room, hears footsteps outside. She goes out into the hall but finds no one. As soon as she goes back into her room and closes the door, she hears the footsteps again. She calls out, "Who's there? Quentin?", but there's no answer. She opens the door again and finds no one there.

Claude North returns to the old house but cannot find Roxanne. There's a knock at the door. Maggie comes in. North comes upstairs. Maggie asks where Barnabas is. North asks who's Barnabas. Maggie replies that he's the man who lives here. North demands to know what happened to the girl that was here. but Maggie tells him she doesn't know what he's talking about. North doesn't believe her and hypnotizes her to get the truth, but finds that she really doesn't know what he's talking about.

After North leaves, Maggie returns to Collinwood and tells Barnabas about seeing a man she's never seen before at the old house, that he asked her about the whereabouts of a girl. Barnabas lies that he doesn't know anything about a girl. Barnabas asks what she was doing at the old house. Maggie explains about hearing the footsteps. She tells him she is convinced that Quentin is the murderer, that in a jealous rage had murdered Angelique, that he is, as Roger theorizes, now completely mad, and is in the house and they are all in danger from him. Barnabas tries to convince her that this isn't true, without luck. She tells him she wants to leave Collinwood, saying that if Roger is right and Quentin is mad, he might be planning to kill them all one by one. From up on the landing at the door to the bedrooms, Quentin eavesdrops..

At night, Maggie goes to sleep and has a dream. The dream starts off well, with a vision of what life for her and Quentin might have been like if things had worked out better. In it, she's in the drawing room. Quentin comes in through the front door, smiling and apparently very happy. Maggie asks him what he's doing home so early. He tells her he ended the board meeting early. He says that he's been spending too much time away from her and has decided to take the next six months off and take her on an around the world trip. But then he sees a bouquet of flowers on a table. He picks them up, notes that they are the same kind that Bruno used to give to Angelique and demands to know where they came from. Maggie tells him that she doesn't know. He accuses her of lying and having an affair and starts to choke her in a jealous rage. Maggie awakens from the dream and finds Quentin standing over her with his hands around her throat...

Night has come to the Great Estate of Collinwood in the strange and disturbing world of Parallel Time. But the dark has brought no rest with it from the fears of the day. For on this night, Maggie Collins has had a terror-ridden dream in which she finds herself marked for murder. Not at the hands of the evil Angelique, but as the victim of her own husband's maddened rage.

Maggie screams, struggles free and runs from the room. Outside, she runs into Barnabas, who has heard her screams, and tells him Quentin was in the room and that he tried to strangle her. Barnabas goes into the room and finds the window open and no one there. Maggie wants to call the police, but Barnabas tells her not to, that he thinks it would be better if he went and tried to find Quentin.

Julia and Angelique are in the drawing room. Angelique tells Julia that she seems to be acting strangely lately. Julia explains that she's been under a lot of stress. Angelique asks if stress can explain her forgetting that Inspector Hamilton's wife has been dead for three years. Julia answers yes. They are interrupted by Maggie, who comes into the room and tells them what happened. She tells them that she wants to call the police, but Barnabas doesn't want her to, that he wants to look for him. Angelique agrees, that the police might get trigger happy and shoot Quentin.

Later, Barnabas tells Julia what happened, and sadly tells Julia that maybe Quentin IS mad and guilty of the murders. He asks her if she's had any luck in finding out from Angelique where she is. Julia replies that she hasn't, that she's got to be careful because Inspector Hamilton had told Angelique that she had somehow forgotten his wife's death and that she now suspects. Barnabas tells Julia that it' getting too dangerous and suggests she go back to the other parallel time. She refuses.

Angelique runs into Julia in the foyer and asks her why she's not following Barnabas. Julia replies that he's gone back to the old house for the night. Angelique remarks, "Good. Then there's no danger that he'll find Quentin tonight". Julia asks, "You know where Quentin is?". Angelique replies, "You're supposed to be trying to learn Barnabas' secrets, not mine." and goes upstairs.

Angelique leaves Collinwood and goes to a cave in which Quentin is hiding. She asks him what happened. He tells her he couldn't help it, that he just had to go see Maggie. He adds that it's so difficult to believe that she's a witch, that somehow, he ended up with his hands around her neck but couldn't go through with it. Unbeknownst to them, Julia is outside eavesdropping. Angelique suggests to Quentin that he leave Collinwood. Quentin refuses. They kiss.

Julia returns to Collinwood and tells Barnabas where Quentin is hiding. Barnabas is surprised, saying he's already searched there. Julia replies that Angelique is probably moving him around periodically. Barnabas tells her he's going to go to the cave to get Quentin. Julia tells him not to, that Quentin might not trust him. She tells him Quentin does trust Angelique and it would be better if she go and, acting as Angelique's 'loyal servant', pretend she's acting on her orders.

Angelique returns to Collinwood and finds Julia in the foyer. She tells her she is disappointed that she hasn't learned Barnabas' secret yet and asks "What do you do all day?". Julia replies, "Follow Barnabas, as you've instructed.". Angelique remarks, "What does he do all day ? You know, I've just realized that I've never seen him during the day, only at night.". Julia pauses and replies, "Oh, he goes to town a lot, and spends a lot of time reading.." Angelique remarks, "You know, I don't think I've ever seen him during the day". Julia quickly replies, "He's pretty busy most days. He doesn't come here until night". Angelique goes upstairs, saying, "Well, continue what you're doing and tell me if you learn anything." Julia goes into the drawing room. Barnabas steps out from behind the curtains. Julia says, in a worried tone, "Did you hear that?".

Angelique, walking by her old room, hears voices inside. She opens the door and sees Maggie and Quentin in an unfurnished room. She gasps, "The other time, the one Barnabas is from!". The other Maggie tells the other Quentin, "I can't believe she went there". The other Quentin replies, "Dr. Julia Hoffman would go anywhere to help Barnabas, even another time band".

Barnabas goes to Maggie's room and tells her to sleep comfortably, that he's searched everywhere and is sure Quentin is no longer at Collinwood and that she's safe.

Julia goes to the cave and tells Quentin he's got to leave the cave and come with her, that there's been a change of plans. Angelique suddenly comes in and tells Quentin "Quick! Go hide deeper in the cave. The beach is swarming with police". Quentin does. Julia asks "Why have the police come?". Angelique replies, "They haven't , I just said that to get him away so they could talk privately." She asks, "Where were you planning to take Quentin, DOCTOR Hoffman..."

The Great House at Collinwood in the frightening world of Parallel Time, where an atmosphere of terror prevails. It began with the murder of Angelique Collins, and it became even more terrifying after her return from the grave. Quentin Collins has been accused of murder, but is at large somewhere on the estate. And on this night, one woman who is trying to help him clear his name, will discover that her own life is in eminent danger.

Julia asks Angelique what she means. Angelique recounts what she saw in her old room. Julia swears she isn't this Dr. Hoffman. Surprisingly, Angelique tells her she believes her.

At Collinwood, Elizabeth comes down into the drawing room. Roger, in the drawing room, tells her he's surprised to see her there, that the doctor had given her a sedative that was supposed to keep her out till noon tomorrow. Elizabeth tells him she felt Carolyn's presence in her room, that she thought she heard her voice, that she thinks maybe she's not at rest and is trying to tell her who her murderer is. This upsets Roger for some reason and he tells Elizabeth that it's just her imagination and that he's tired of all this talk of death. Elizabeth retorts that he's never stopped talking about Angelique's death after all this time. They argue. They are interrupted by Barnabas coming in.

Both Roger and Elizabeth leave, leaving Barnabas alone in the drawing room. Julia and Angelique return. Barnabas remarks, "You're both up late tonight.". Julia pretends to be cold to him and replies, "That's none of your concern". Angelique "reprimands" her for being so rude to Barnabas and adds, "Well, it's no surprise that you're still up. That's one secret of yours I've learned. You seem to be nocturnal". She smilingly tells him she's sure to learn what he does during the day, and his other secrets as well.

Roger is in Angelique's old room, drunkenly talking to the portrait. He tells the portrait it's too bad it became necessary to kill Carolyn. Suddenly, he hears a voice behind him say, "So it was you who killed Carolyn!". He turns and sees Elizabeth standing there. He tries to tell her he only said what he did because he's drunk and doesn't know what he's saying, but she doesn't believe him, goes crazy and picks up a heavy statue and tries to hit him with it. He grabs her arms, manages to disarm her and starts to strangle her...

Roger puts an apparently dead Elizabeth in a trunk built in by the window. Barnabas comes into the room and tells him he wants to talk to him about Elizabeth. He notices that Roger is acting nervously and asks what's wrong. Roger replies that this room makes him nervous and suggests that they go to the drawing room to talk. Barnabas asks what he's doing in this room if it makes him nervous. Roger lies that he was just walking around the house, checking around.

Angelique and Julia go down into a sub-basement. Angelique remarks that this is probably as deep under the house as you can get. Julia asks how she managed to find it. Angelique replies that Damien Williams showed it to her. Julia remarks that it'll be a good hiding place for Quentin. Angelique opens a door to a secret room and tells Julia to go in. They go in. Julia tells Angelique she'll get some things to make the room comfortable for Quentin. Angelique tells her that that won't be necessary, that the room isn't for Quentin, it's for her. She tells a shocked Julia that she doesn't really believe what she said at the cave, that she knows she's really Doctor Julia Hoffman. Julia asks, "What are you going to do with me?". Angelique replies that she's not going to kill her, that she needs her to answer some questions. She tells her the first one is "What happened to my Hoffman?". Julia tells her that she had accidentally killed her. Angelique then asks, "What is Barnabas' secret?". Julia lies that she doesn't know.

In the drawing room, Roger asks Barnabas what he wanted to say about Elizabeth. Barnabas replies that he just wanted to suggest that someone be stationed outside her room to keep her from coming out and wandering the house in her condition.

Angelique tries to hypnotize Julia, but Julia turns her head and refuses to look at the locket Angelique is dangling. Angelique, tells her she's going to leave her locked in here without food or water, that she'll come by periodically to check on her until she either dies or tells her the secret. Julia again lies that she doesn't know Barnabas' secret. Angelique remarks, "Then you'll live the rest of your life here. It'll be a short one. You have no food, no water and no chance of escape. You're going to rot in here!" She leaves and locks the door. Julia puts out one of the two lit candles she has in the candelabrum she has brought with her to conserve it.

The Great Estate of Collinwood in Parallel Time, and a night of treachery and horror for two women. Elizabeth Stoddard lies dead, her body concealed within a window seat, the victim of her brother Roger, who murdered her when she discovered that he was the secret killer who terrorized Collinwood. And in another part of the Great House, Julia Hoffman learns that she has not fooled Angelique as well as she thought she had.

Roger is in the foyer, thinking to himself that he must find a way to dispose of Elizabeth's body. Angelique wanders by and asks him why he's still awake. Roger replies that he was about to go to bed a little while ago, but Barnabas was by asking where Julia was. After Angelique leaves, Roger decides that rather than disposing of the body, it would be better to pin the murder on Quentin.

Angelique goes to her room and finds Quentin there. She tells him he shouldn't have risked coming here. Quentin replies that he overheard some of the servants talking and knows Carolyn was murdered. He asks her why she didn't tell him.

Julia, imprisoned in the secret room, lights her second candle from the flame of the first, which is burning out. She gets frantic and bangs on the door and screams for help.

Roger goes to Angelique's old room to check and make sure that he left no evidence of killing Elizabeth. Angelique comes in and tells him he shouldn't be in here, that it's dangerous because it could change at any time and trap him in the other time. Roger remarks that maybe he'd like that, to go into the other time with her where they can start anew. Maggie comes running in the room screaming that she's found Elizabeth dead in the Tower room, strangled. Roger feigns shock and runs out of the room to go there.

Roger finishes a phone call from the local paper asking him if it's true that Elizabeth is dead. He tells them that alas, she is. After the phone call, Maggie tells Roger that she thinks that Quentin must have killed Elizabeth, that he's totally crazy by now. Roger agrees with her.

Angelique tells Quentin about Elizabeth's murder, saying she was strangled just like Bruno was. Quentin tells her that Maggie must be responsible, that she must have used witchcraft to do it the same way she killed Bruno.

In the drawing room, Maggie tells Roger that everyone's still in danger and that she'd like to take the children away from Collinwood until Quentin's caught. Roger agrees. Maggie adds that maybe he and Angelique should think about leaving for awhile too.

Angelique goes to the sub-basement to check up on Julia. She asks her if she's willing to tell her Barnabas' secret yet. Julia tells her she'll never tell her. Angelique replies that she will in a few days after suffering the pain of hunger and thirst. As Angelique is leaving, Julia attacks her, but Angelique manages to overcome her and leaves.

Maggie is with Roger in the drawing room. Maggie wonders where Julia is. Angelique comes in and tells them that Julia Hoffman decided to leave Collinwood last night and did, that she left in the middle of the night so that they couldn't try to convince her to stay. Maggie tells Angelique that maybe she should leave too.

Quentin sneaks into Maggie's room, determined to find the voodoo doll he is sure Maggie must have used to kill Elizabeth. He finds a handkerchief with Elizabeth's' monogram "ESC", which he figures must have been used to strangle the doll and continues to look for a doll. Maggie comes into the room and catches him in there. Thinking she is a murderous witch, he accuses her of murdering Elizabeth and approaches her menacingly and tells her he'll kill her if he has to to stop her. She screams and runs out of the room.

Roger is in Angelique's old room, talking to Angelique's portrait again. Maggie runs in and screams that Quentin is in the house and is chasing her and wants to kill her. Roger locks the doors. He hugs Maggie to calm her, but as he does, he starts to ramble and say, "If only Elizabeth hadn't come into this room, she'd still be alive". Maggie asks him what he means, remarking that Elizabeth died in the Tower room. Roger realizes his mistake and tries to convince her that he was just rambling without thinking, but Maggie says, "But what if she was killed somewhere else and brought there?". She suddenly realizes that Roger must have killed Elizabeth and tells him, "I don't think Quentin is out there. Give me the key so I can go out and call the police".

The Great Estate of Collinwood in Parallel Time. Where the demented Roger Collins, to protect his own dark part in the death of Angelique, has burdened his mind and spirit with two additional murders, and is now confronted with the necessity of yet another: the death of Maggie Collins.

There's a knock at the door, then Angelique's voice asking what's happening in there. Roger quickly hides Maggie behind a chair and opens the door a crack. Angelique asks what he's doing in there. Roger starts to tell some lie, but suddenly Maggie starts to groan. Angelique pushes past Roger and goes in to see what it is. She finds Maggie behind the chair. Roger flees. Maggie tells Angelique that Roger had tried to kill her because she found out that he had kill Elizabeth. She adds that he also killed Carolyn and probably also Angelique. 'Alexis' remarks, "Of course. He was sitting right by Angelique at the sťance. Why didn't I realize this before? He always loved her but who could love a man like that?". Maggie tells her they'd better call the police. Angelique remarks, "The man who killed Angelique deserves a special punishment!"

Barnabas is at the old house standing over the body of Roxanne, wondering where Julia is. He decides that even without her help, he must try to rouse Roxanne to semi-consciousness, being careful not to rouse her to full consciousness, thereby killing Angelique and destroy any chance of proving Quentin innocent. He turns the equipment on...

Roger escapes through the front doors...

A little later, Maggie and Angelique are in the drawing room. Maggie looks out the window and remarks, "I've never seen so many state troopers in my life". After Maggie leaves, Angelique casts a spell to cause Roger to come back to Collinwood, helping him to get past all the policemen.

At the old house, Barnabas turns off the equipment. Roxanne lies there immobile. It has not worked. Barnabas decides he must find Julia. He exits the old house to go to Collinwood. Unbeknownst to him, Claude North is lurking behind the trees outside and sees him leave. As soon as Barnabas is out of sight, North goes into the old house.

Roger comes back to Collinwood and goes to Angelique's old room. Angelique comes out of the shadows. Angelique is about to do something to Roger when suddenly she begins to feel the cold of the grave again. She asks him to hold her. He does. She asks him to kiss her. He does. Suddenly, Roger gasps, "The cold! Like the grave!" and asks, "What's happening to me?" Angelique replies, "You're dying!" Roger gasps, "No! No!", then dies. Angelique remarks, "You introduced me to the cold of the grave, Roger, I could do no less for you!"

Claude North goes to the basement of the old house and finds Roxanne lying there. He tries to rouse her but she doesn't move. He takes out his knife and holding it above her eyes, orders her to awaken.

Barnabas finds Angelique and demands to know where Julia Hoffman is. She refuses. Suddenly, she starts to feel weak and faint and nearly collapses. She exclaims, "It must be Roxanne! She must not be allowed to speak ". Barnabas remarks, "For once I agree with you! She must not speak - at least not yet!" and rushes out to go back to the old house.

At the old house, North orders Roxanne, who is now awake and standing, to speak. Suddenly, Barnabas appears and exclaims "Claude North!" North asks how he knows his name. Barnabas replies that he read the name on the sketch and found Roxanne kneeling in front of a grave bearing that name. North explains that the grave was that of his grandfather, that it used to be one his and Roxanne's favorite meeting places. Barnabas tells him to stop ordering her to speak. North refuses. Barnabas threatens him, telling him if he speaks another word, it'll be his last. North replies that it would not be wise to harm him, that if he does it will cause Roxanne to speak for sure. Barnabas begs him not to cause her to speak, that if she does, Angelique will die and Quentin will never be exonerated. North replies that he doesn't care. He tells Barnabas to tell Angelique she has only minutes left. Barnabas leaves.

Maggie finds a weakened Angelique in the drawing room. She asks how she can help her. Angelique thinks to herself, "Quentin will be coming to my room soon. If I'm to die, I'll have Quentin join me. She asks Maggie to help her over to the fire. Maggie does. Angelique casts a spell on her and puts her in a trance where she'll follow her every command like a zombie. Angelique tells Maggie to go to the desk and get the gun out of the top right hand drawer. She does. Angelique then tells her to go to Angelique's room, that Quentin will soon be coming there, and when he does, she is to shoot him in the heart. Maggie leaves the drawing room and starts upstairs.

North continues to order Roxanne to talk.

Barnabas arrives at Collinwood and goes to the drawing room. He tells Angelique that he tried to stop Claude North from getting Roxanne to speak but couldn't, that she has minutes to live at the most. He asks that before she dies, she do two things, one, to sign a confession to the murder of Bruno Hess, clearing Quentin, and two, tell him where Julia is. He uses a ball point pen at the desk to write a confession. He takes it to her and asks her to sign it. Angelique refuses. Barnabas tells her, "It'll give you peace". Angelique replies, "I didn't come back for peace. I came back for Quentin!"

Upstairs, Maggie is in Angelique's room, holding the gun. The doorknob starts to turn. Maggie raises the gun and aims at the door...

The Great House at Collinwood in the dark and frightening world of Parallel Time, where Barnabas Collins fights to put an end to the evils caused by one woman. On this night, the future of Quentin Collins is at stake. Accused of murder, Quentin could eventually be hanged unless Barnabas can prove that Angelique Collins is really the guilty one.

Quentin opens the door and goes into Angelique's room. Maggie aims the gun at him and prepares to shoot. Quentin shouts, "Maggie! NO!"

At the old house, Claude North continues to order Roxanne to speak. Roxanne finally, "I can speak!"
In the drawing room at Collinwood, Angelique screams and dies.
In Angelique's room, the spell broken, Maggie screams and collapses to the floor.
Barnabas calls Inspector Hamilton and tells him Alexis is dead.

Quentin comes downstairs. Barnabas tells him about Alexis' death. Quentin tells him that Maggie is a witch and must be responsible. He tells him about Maggie trying to shoot him upstairs. Barnabas tells Quentin that Maggie is not the witch, that Alexis was really Angelique and was the witch. As proof of this, he points out to Quentin that Maggie did not shoot him, that Angelique must have cast a spell to cause her to try to do so, and that when Angelique died, the spell was broken. He tells Quentin that he has one hope to prove himself innocent: to find Julia Hoffman, who, as Angelique's 'loyal servant', can tell the police that Angelique had killed Bruno Hess.

Inspector Hamilton comes. He examines Angelique's body and asks Barnabas if he knows how she died. Barnabas tells him, "You'd better sit down. It's a long story". The inspectors seats himself in an armchair and Barnabas starts to tell him the truth...

At the old house, Claude North, having gotten Roxanne to speak, tells her to go away with him. Roxanne tells him she can't, claiming she's too weak to go, but on further questioning from North, tells him she doesn't want to leave because she has fallen in love with Barnabas because he was so kind to her while she was in the trance. North angrily starts to hypnotize her to force her to leave with him.

Barnabas finishes telling Hamilton what happened. Hamilton tells him the story is preposterous and that he's still convinced Quentin is guilty. Barnabas tells him that he can show him proof: the girl Roxanne whose life-force was used to keep Angelique alive.

Claude North takes Roxanne through the woods. Moments later, Barnabas and Inspector Hamilton pass the same spot on their way to the old house.

Barnabas and the Inspector go to the basement of the old house and find no trace of Roxanne.

Quentin sits in Angelique's room and watches Maggie wake up. He tells her, "Don't be afraid of me. Let me explain." She tells him he doesn't have to, that she knows the truth now, that it was Roger who killed Elizabeth, Carolyn and Angelique. She apologizes for ever suspecting him. He tells her there's still the matter of Bruno's murder. She tells him not to worry, that she's confident that he'll be proven innocent of that and that they'll be able to start their life together again. She promises to try to make it better this time, to try to be herself rather than trying to be like Angelique and trying to replace her. Quentin stuns Maggie by telling her, "Maggie, I HATED Angelique! I hated the ground she walked on! She was beautiful, but that was all she was! She was pure evil inside! I hated everything she was! We never had one happy day together! Did you ever hear me say I loved her?" Maggie replies, "I thought you didn't because of your grief". Quentin replies, "My grief was a lie! All the good things you heard about her were the result of a myth, a myth she created, a myth she nurtured every day. She manipulated people. She was conniving and sadistic, and I HATED her! She was unfaithful to me, and didn't care that I knew. I wanted to leave her, but she threatened to cause the greatest scandal this family's ever known! I was GLAD when she died!" He tells Maggie, "You are everything I want in a woman, everything she never was!" They are suddenly interrupted by Inspector Hamilton coming into the room and telling Quentin, "You are under arrest, and this time you won't get away!"

Later, in the foyer, Barnabas tells Maggie that he's looked through both the East and West wings for Julia, who may be able to prove Quentin innocent, and not found her. He tells her he's going to go to Stoke's house to see if North brought Roxanne there.

In the woods, Barnabas stumbles on to the body of Claude North. North is dead, a knife protruding from his body. Barnabas wonders where Roxanne is, if she might not be dead too...

Night on the Great Estate of Collinwood, and in the strange world of Parallel Time. Desperately, Barnabas Collins attempts to save both Quentin and Julia, but he will meet with challenges that seem to be beyond even his special powers. And the triumph over Angelique may become defeat.

Barnabas goes to Stokes. Stokes tells Barnabas that he's heard about Angelique's death and that if he's come just to gloat about it, to please leave. Barnabas tells him that's not what he came to do. He tells him about finding Claude North's body and accuses him of doing it. Inspector Hamilton shows up and tells Barnabas he'd like to speak to Stokes alone. Barnabas leaves. Hamilton tells Stokes what Barnabas told him about his keeping a woman here to supply a life-force for Angelique. Stokes takes him into the room behind the curtains and asks, "Is this where I was supposed to be keeping the woman? You can clearly see that that's not the case..". The room has now been completely changed and is just full of old furniture and appears to be a storage room. Stokes tells the Inspector that Barnabas' story is obviously ridiculous. The inspector agrees, but remarks that Alexis's death WAS sudden and mysterious. Stokes replies that it's not so surprising, that she had a heart condition. The inspector tells him that if that's true it'll show up in the autopsy. Stokes is shocked that there'll be an autopsy. The inspector replies that there's always an autopsy in cases like this.

At Collinwood, Barnabas pores over blueprints of the house to find all the secret places where Julia might be imprisoned. Inspector Hamilton shows up and tells him what happened at Stokes. Barnabas tells him that Quentin's only hope lies in finding Julia or Roxanne, both of whom can corroborate his fantastic story.

Roxanne is in a house somewhere. Stokes shows up and asks her to go with him. She refuses, saying she's going to stay here, that Claude North will bring her everything she needs. Stokes tells Roxanne that Claude North is dead, and that Barnabas must have done it. Roxanne vows to avenge Claude's death.

Barnabas tells Inspector Hamilton on the phone that he's searched the rest of the house and that the only place he has left to search is the basement. The inspector tells him he's anxious to close this case up and that he'll come and help him.

As Barnabas continues to pore over the blueprints, Roxanne shows up with a knife and tells him she's going to kill him for murdering Claude North. She raises the knife to stab him, but can't go through with it, drops the knife and runs off.

Julia, in the secret room in the basement, thinks to herself, "If someone comes, I'll be able to hear them, and if I call out, they'll be able to hear me. I must stay awake in case someone comes..."

Julia fights her sleepiness, but finally falls asleep...

Julia has a dream in which Barnabas and Roxanne are in Angelique's room. Roxanne asks, "Is this the room where the time warp happens?" Barnabas replies, "Yes". Roxanne muses, "I'll be so happy to go to your time and forget all the terrible things that have happened here". Barnabas agrees. Roxanne notes, "But why do you look so sad? It's because you couldn't find Julia, isn't it?" Barnabas replies, "Yes". Roxanne continues, "You did everything you could. She's probably dead by now". Barnabas sadly agrees. Barnabas sadly agrees. They kiss and wait for the room to change...

Inspector Hamilton comes and he and Barnabas go down and search the basement, calling out Julia's name. Unfortunately, Julia has fallen asleep and does not hear them.

The inspector and Barnabas give up and go back upstairs, deciding that Julia must not be down here, that if she were, she would certainly have heard them calling out to her...

Julia awakens from her dream and screams, "No! He wouldn't leave me here! He wouldn't! Barnabas! Help! Please find me!", but there's no one in the basement to hear her cries...

Collinwood in Parallel Time, a house of tragedy. For though Roger and Angelique are dead, what they have started continues, and Quentin is once more jailed for the murder of Bruno Hess. The one person who can prove that Angelique murdered Bruno is Julia Hoffman, but she is missing. And though the police and Barnabas have searched the Great House, they cannot find her.

Maggie comes to Collinwood and tells Barnabas that Quentin has given up on finding Julia and given up to the police, that he's sure she must be dead. and that has decided to close Collinwood forever because so much tragedy has happened here and that both he and she must leave. Barnabas is shocked, saying he's sure Julia is still alive and wants to stay and continue to look for her.

Roxanne returns to the house where she was staying and runs into Stokes there. Stokes is surprised that she did not kill Barnabas and wonders what strange power he has over women. He warns her against him, saying he has some deep, dark secret.

Maggie goes upstairs to pack. Barnabas continues to pore over the blueprints, desperately looking for secret rooms where Julia might be. Roxanne comes back and tells her she can't live without him, that Stokes told her to beware of him because of some secret, but that she doesn't care. Barnabas looks at her throat with lust, but manages to restrain himself tells her to leave. Roxanne leaves and wanders through the woods, stung by Barnabas's apparent rejection of her.

After a while, Roxanne returns to Collinwood and tells Barnabas she's got to be with him, whatever the cost. This time, Barnabas weakens and bites her.

Maggie comes downstairs and finds Barnabas in the foyer. She tells him that she's finished packing. He tells her that Roxanne has come. Maggie asks if she's willing to talk to the police. Barnabas replies that he's sure she will. He tells her to go upstairs and get something from Julia's room, any article of clothing. Maggie asks why. Barnabas tells her to just go do it.

Barnabas goes into the drawing room where Roxanne is. He tells her he had learned from Stokes that she has certain psychic powers and asks her to use them to help him. Maggie returns with a scarf from Julia's room. Barnabas gives it to Roxanne, who concentrates for awhile and stuns Barnabas by saying, "The woman who owns this scarf is dead...".

Roxanne goes back to her house and again runs into Stokes. This time she tries to get away from him. He grabs her and they struggle. During the struggle, he sees the holes on her neck and exclaims, "So that's Barnabas' secret!!!".

Barnabas and Maggie leave Collinwood, closing it forever as per Quentin's instructions. Maggie remarks, "After all these years of Collinwood, now it's all over..."

In the cellar, Julia moans, "Someone find me, please....."

The Great House at Collinwood in the dark and frightening world of Parallel Time. On this night, Angelique has been destroyed, but the evil she was responsible for has not ended. Quentin Collins still stands accused of murder. The one person who can save him, Julia Hoffman, has disappeared mysteriously. Barnabas and Maggie have reluctantly concluded that Julia is dead. They have decided to close and lock the doors of the Great House, unaware that there is still one person in it.

Stokes tells Roxanne he knows the marks on her neck are vampire bites. He demands to know if they were made by Barnabas. She refuses to tell him. He puts his hands around her throat and threatens to strangle her if she doesn't tell him. She admits that Barnabas made the wounds. Stokes vows to destroy Barnabas. Roxanne screams, "I'll warn him!". Stokes replies that he won't give her a chance to and locks her in a closet and leaves.

Barnabas and Maggie are at the old house. Barnabas sadly reflects on the fact that Julia is dead. Maggie picks up the scarf that Roxanne had used to try to find Julia and remarks on how ironic it would have been for Hoffman to have been the cause of Quentin's release. Suddenly, Barnabas realizes his mistake: that the scarf given to Roxanne had not been Julia's, but belonged to the evil Hoffman, who is indeed, as Roxanne sensed, dead. He instructs Maggie to go upstairs and get a suitcase containing women's clothing and rushes off to get Roxanne so they can try again, the right way this time.

Barnabas goes to Roxanne's house and calls for her. He hears her screams from inside a closet and lets her out. She tells him about Stokes learning he is a vampire and his vow to destroy him.

Barnabas brings Roxanne back to the old house. He asks her to select an article from a suitcase, which Maggie has brought down. She selects a brooch. She is puzzled to see "the same woman" she saw before, but this time alive, in a room she's never seen before. Barnabas asks her if she can lead them to this room. She tells them she can.

Roxanne leads Barnabas and Maggie to the sub-basement of the old house and to the vicinity of the secret room where Julia is imprisoned. Barnabas calls for her, but Julia, asleep, does not hear. Maggie is about to lead them away, saying she's been down here before and that there's a door leading to another room they can search, but Julia awakens and starts to cry. Barnabas hears her and , realizing it's coming from behind the bookcase, calls to her. She tells him there must be a lever opening the bookcase on the outside. He looks for it, finds it and lets her out.

Everyone returns to the old house. Julia tells Barnabas that when Angelique stopped coming to question her, she realized that something must have happened to her and that she was trapped there forever. The phone rings. Barnabas answers. It's Inspector Hamilton, who tells Barnabas that they've just completed the autopsy on Alexis and found that she was indeed Angelique and that Quentin has been cleared. He adds that Quentin has instructed that the body be cremated. Barnabas, Julia and Maggie leave to go the the jail. Unbeknownst to them, Stokes is spying through the window, watching them leave. After they leave, he comes in. Roxanne gloats to him that his plans have been shattered, that the police have learned that Alexis was Angelique, that Quentin has been cleared and has instructed that the body be cremated. Stokes, infuriated, screams, "I'll avenge her by killing everyone!"" and starts toward Roxanne, but she grabs a letter opener to defend herself. Stokes remarks, "No matter. I'll take care of you later, after I get the pleasure of seeing Barnabas turn to dust first!" and leaves.

Barnabas returns to the old house. Roxanne tells him about Stokes and his threat. Barnabas tells her not to worry, that he'll take care of Stokes before dawn. He tells her Quentin's been cleared. Julia calls and tells Barnabas that she and Quentin have to stay at the police station a couple more hours to give their depositions, but Quentin didn't see any reason for Maggie to stay at the jail and sent her back to Collinwood. Barnabas tells Roxanne, "As soon as Maggie gets back, I'll go settle Stokes".

As Maggie is walking through the woods to old house, she is grabbed from behind by Stokes, who menacingly says, "There's no longer a first Mrs. Collins, soon there won't be a second one!!".

The Great House at Collinwood, in the strange and terrifying world of Parallel Time. On this night, Quentin Collins has been exonerated of a charge of murder, but a very great threat still exists, both to Quentin and to Barnabas Collins. For Timothy Stokes has been prevented from bringing Angelique back from the grave a second time. And now he has followed his revenge against Barnabas and Quentin. A revenge that is destined to end in tragedy.

At the old house, Barnabas is awaiting Maggie's return while Roxanne takes a nap on the couch. Roxanne has a dream....

In the dream, Barnabas is telling her, "Soon, my dear, we will be in another time, a time you know nothing about, a time that will be ours..." Suddenly, Roxanne finds herself outside Angelique's old room with Barnabas inside the room, surrounded by fire. They cannot get to one other....

Roxanne wakes up screaming. Barnabas asks what's the matter. She tells him about the dream.

Stokes takes Maggie to Collinwood and ties her to a chair in the drawing room. Maggie exclaims, "You're insane!" Stokes says, "If Angelique could see this! But her spirit will rejoice!" Maggie asks "What are you going to do?" He replies, "One must pay the piper, Mrs. Collins! Tonight Quentin will pay with his life!".

Roxanne asks Barnabas, "Tell me about the other time you're going to take me to". He tells her, "It doesn't appear very different from this one, but is is. Everyone here has a counterpart there, but their personalities and destinies are different. For example, Timothy Stokes is a professor in that other time, a kind, gentle man. You're going to be much happier in that other time, I promise you". Barnabas notes, "It's been over an hour" and starts to worry about Maggie, saying she should have gotten back by now and goes out to look for her.

Julia and Quentin return to the old house. Roxanne tells them Barnabas is out looking for Maggie, who has still not returned. The phone rings. Quentin answers. It's Stokes, who tells him that he has Maggie at Collinwood and tells him to come alone and unarmed. Quentin, seeing no alternative, tells Julia about it and says he's going to follow Stokes' demands. After Quentin leaves, Julia and Roxanne decide to go look for Barnabas.

Quentin arrives at Collinwood. Stokes aims a gun at him. Quentin warns him he'll never get away with it. Stokes replies, "I'm not trying to get away with it. I have nothing left to lose. The only thing left for me is the satisfaction of killing you". He prepares to shoot...

Suddenly, the doors to the drawing room open. Standing there is Roxanne. While everyone is distracted by this, Barnabas magically appears by the window. Quentin attacks the distracted Stokes and disarms him, but Stokes manages to grab Roxanne and threatens to break her neck of anyone tries anything, then and drags Roxanne away, locking the drawing room doors behind him. While Quentin unties Maggie from the chair m Barnabas takes a letter opener from the desk and pries the locked doors open. Everyone goes out into the foyer, where they find the front door open. Figuring that Stokes must have taken Roxanne from Collinwood, they exit through the front door. But Stokes has fooled them. After they leave, he comes out with Roxanne from the door under the stairs and goes back into the drawing room, holding Roxanne in one arm and a jug in the other.

Barnabas runs into Julia in the woods and tells her what happened (apparently she and Roxanne separated when looking for Barnabas). He realizes that maybe they made a mistake and that Stokes and Roxanne may still be at Collinwood. They go there to search.

At Collinwood, Stokes, in the drawing room with Roxanne. Roxanne asks, "What are you going to do?" Stokes replies, "They'll all be coming back soon. I have a surprise planned for them". They hear the front door. Stokes quickly grabs Roxanne and puts a hand over her mouth. They hear the voices of Barnabas and Julia, then the sounds of footsteps going up the stairs. Stokes remarks, "Only Barnabas and Julia. Quentin isn't with them. But Barnabas and Julia are revenge enough. I've lost everything, and now Quentin will lose everything, his beloved Collinwood burned to ashes!". He picks up the jug he's brought with him from a table and starts to douse the drawing room with gasoline. Roxanne exclaims, "Barnabas and Julia will be trapped upstairs!" Stokes laughs, "Yes, and they'll be burned to cinders!" Roxanne runs to warn Julia and Barnabas. Stokes sets the drawing room aflame and then goes out to the foyer, splashes gasoline out there and lights it aflame too.

Upstairs, Julia and Barnabas are in Angelique's old room, searching. Suddenly, they smell smoke. They look and find their way out of the room blocked by fire. Julia asks, "How will we get out?" Barnabas says, "I don't know!" They hear Roxanne calling, "Barnabas!", They see her in the hallway on the other side of the flames. Barnabas shouts, "Give me your hand!", then moans, "Julia! I can't reach her!" He shouts, "Roxanne! Roxanne!" Suddenly, Barnabas and Julia stop smelling smoke and hearing the crackle of the fire. They find themselves in a dark, unfurnished room. They are back in their own time. Barnabas moans, "Oh no! We've come back, and Roxanne is still in her time. Poor Roxanne! Roxanne!"

Collinwood as it exists in the terrifying world of Parallel Time, in the final moments before it's ultimate destruction. For on this night, Timothy Stokes, crazed by the collapse of his plans to ruin the Collins family, has set fire to the Great House and died in the flames. Barnabas and Julia have made their way to Angelique's room in the hope of reaching their own time before it is too late. Roxanne, however, has not been able to enter the room and join them.

Barnabas tells Julia he's got to get back to the other parallel time to find out what happened to Roxanne. Julia tells him she doesn't think he can because Angelique's room in the other time has been destroyed, destroying the link. Barnabas moans, "I'll never be able to go back! She was the only woman who ever made me forget my dear lost Josette. From the moment I first saw her, I felt a love I haven't felt since Josette. I finally thought I would live the life I have wanted so long, a life full of love and happiness, but it's been snatched from me again. Why is fate so eager to offer me a chance at fulfillment, only to destroy it before my very eyes?" Julia tells him, "You forget how rare a life of love can be. You're not the only one who's had so little hope. It's something one learns to live with. We can get used to anything if we have to". Barnabas just looks at her but doesn't say anything.

They notice that something is different about the room, that the air seem to be quite damp. When they go out of the room, they are shocked. The hallway outside is wrecked. They look further and find that all Collinwood seems to be wrecked, in an extreme state of disrepair. They go down into the foyer. It is a mess, with debris everywhere. Julia remarks that maybe a hurricane hit. Parts of the ceiling have fallen in. They go into the drawing room. It too is a mess. On a table, Julia finds some papers she had left just before she went into parallel time. She picks them up and is surprised to find that they are yellowed and crumble under her touch, as if they were very old. Then she finds on the table a note in Elizabeth's handwriting that says, "We must leave Collinwood before the day is out". But it is unfinished and does not say why. Barnabas finds traces of Elizabeth's diary in the fireplace. Someone had apparently burned it. All that are left are a few blank pages with "1970" on top.

They hear a sound from the front doors. Thinking it is someone coming in, they rush there, but find that it is only the wind causing the door to slam. They are shocked to find that the trees have grown all the way up to the doorway, partially blocking it. Julia wonders how they could have grown so much just in the month she's been away. Barnabas suggests that maybe they came back to their own time band, but sometime in the future. He then says wherever they are, they're going to have to check out the secret room, that he's still a vampire and needs a place to sleep during the day.

In the graveyard, Barnabas walks over a grave which looks freshly dug. He looks at the headstone and exclaims "Look!" to Julia. She does. It says, "Henry Beecham, 1967-1995". They realize they are 25 years into the future. They are then shocked to find a gravestone nearby reading, "David Collins, 1956 - 1970". One of them picks up a bunch of fresh flowers lying on the grave. Suddenly, an aged, gray haired Mrs. Johnson appears and demands that they put the flowers down and leave the grave alone. She recognizes them and thinks they must be spirits, since they disappeared 25 years ago and look the same now. They try to get her to tell them what happened, but she refuses to tell them, saying that it's just too horrible. She remarks that she's not supposed to come here, that's why she comes and visits the grave at night, so no one would know. They ask her if any of the Collins are still alive. She insists that they all are, that Roger and Elizabeth are living happily in Rome, and that Quentin is living in South America, happily married. They ask her if she is telling the truth. She replies that maybe she's exaggerating a little. Seeing that Mrs. Johnson is in a very disturbed state of mind, Julia suggests to Barnabas that they let her go. Barnabas agrees. As Mrs. Johnson leaves, she decides to be helpful and tells them, "Fredericks! Findley's Cove, old shack!".

Barnabas and Julia go to the old shack at Findley's cove. When they go inside, they are surprised to find that it is sumptuously furnished. Barnabas remarks, "In the other time, Roxanne lived here, but in this time, it's always been empty and deserted". They find the remains of a rather humble meal on the table, a half eaten plate of baked beans and a hunk of French bread. Julia looks over the place and tells Barnabas that all the furniture and decorations seem to be from Collinwood. She looks through a stack of portraits leaning against a wall and finds the portrait of Barnabas. She tells Barnabas that whoever lives here must be from Collinwood, but Barnabas replies, "Not necessarily. The person who lives here might be the person who destroyed Collinwood, and all these things may be the spoils of victory.". He then says, "We'll find out soon" and points to the doorknob. It is turning...

Barnabas and Julia have escaped from the strange world of Parallel Time. But to their shock and horror they have not returned to the present. But instead find themselves in a ruined, deserted Collinwood in the year 1995. They can discover nothing, except that some catastrophic event happened in 1970, which obviously meant the end of the Collins family as we know them. Desperate for clues, they find out from an aged Mrs. Johnson that someone who can tell them what has happened lives on the beach at Findley's Cove.

A middle-aged, wrinkling Carolyn comes in and, like Mrs. Johnson, at first thinks Barnabas and Julia must be spirits. They assure her they are not. They ask her what happened. She claims nothing did. Julia asks her why she's calling herself 'Fredericks'. Carolyn snaps, "I can call myself anything I want!" Julia asks, "Then why don't you call yourself 'Collins'?" Carolyn replies, "That's not a good name, 'they' wouldn't like it!". She giggles a lot and her whole manner indicates mental instability. Figuring that they can learn nothing from her, Barnabas and Julia leave. A few minutes after they do, Carolyn does too, apparently to follow.

Julia and Barnabas go to the Collins tomb. They go into the secret room and are relieved to find that the coffin is still in there. Julia tells Barnabas that she thinks it might be dangerous and that it would be best if she stayed here guarded him, but Barnabas convinces her to go into town and go the the courthouse and look through the records to find out what happened.

Julia exits the secret room, closes the door and leaves the tomb. She is surprised to find Carolyn outside. Carolyn asks what she's doing here. Julia replies that she's interested in the Collins' family history and is doing some research here. Carolyn warns her not to mention the name 'Collins', that it's not a good name. Julia retorts that it's a good, proud name. Carolyn replies, "At one time, maybe. Not anymore...". Julia asks Carolyn what SHE's doing here. Carolyn at first says, "To visit my Mother's grave", but then confusedly says, "Wait a minute. My mother's not dead". Carolyn asks Julia where her friend is. Julia lies that he's in town trying to learn what happened, what she wouldn't tell them. Carolyn warns that that's not a good idea. After Julia leaves, Stokes comes out of hiding from behind some trees and tells Carolyn, "We must make them leave!".

Julia goes to the courthouse and asks to see the records. The clerk happily tells her they have records all the way back to the 1600's, though the ones that old are difficult to read because of the strange handwriting. Julia replies that that won't be a problem, that she's not looking for anything THAT old, only the records pertaining to the Collins' family for the year 1970. The clerk suddenly starts to act nervous and tells her that those records aren't available, that they had a fire a few months ago and they were destroyed. Julia says to him, "Well, if the records aren't available, then maybe you can tell me what happened to the Collins family". He replies that he doesn't know. He then absently mindedly remarks, "Poor Victor and Jane Flagler..."

As Julia exits the records room, she runs into Professor Stokes. She asks him what happened, but he tells her there are things better left alone, forces too powerful to fool with, and suggests that she go away.

Julia goes back to the secret room at sunset. She tells Barnabas what happened. She suggests that the reactions they have encountered clearly indicate that they are dealing with something very dangerous, that perhaps that they should try to leave and go back to their own time. Barnabas vetoes the idea, saying that it would be better to find out what happened before going back to 1970 rather than going back and having to deal with an unknown danger. Barnabas asks Julia if she's found where the Flagler house is. Julia replies that she has. Barnabas tells her they're going there.

As they exit the tomb, Stokes and the record clerk spy on them from behind some trees. The records clerk tells Stokes that they must be going to see Victor Flagler. Stokes replies that that's good, that maybe his story will convince them that there are things best left alone.

Julia and Barnabas arrive at Victor Flagler's house and asks him what connection he has with Collinwood. He refuses to tell them. Julia asks him who "Jane" is. This seems to strike an emotional chord. Flagler shows them a picture and tells them that it's Jane, his wife. He explains that there have always been stories that Collinwood was haunted, that lights have been seen and music heard there, but that he and Jane had not believed them and decided to explore there. He tells them that when they were in the foyer, some debris dropped on Jane, that he was sure it didn't come from the ceiling, but from the balcony, even though he saw no one there, that when he went to Jane, he found she was dead, that he then heard a ghostly laughing....

Barnabas and Julia return to the cemetery and walk towards the tomb. From outside, they see that the secret door is open and light is coming from inside. Julia whispers, "Barnabas! Someone is in there! Someone knows!".

Collinwood in 1995 is a very different place than in 1970 as Julia and Barnabas have found out. For escaping from Parallel time they find themselves in the future with Collinwood in ruins, the family seemingly gone with no record of where or why, and the three people they meet, Mrs. Johnson, Professor Stokes, and a mad Carolyn, refuse to tell them what has happened. And so they return to their hiding place.

Carolyn comes walking out of the secret room and says, "What are you two doing back here?". Julia lies that they came to see the grave of Naomi Collins, then pretends to just notice the secret room, saying, "I didn't know there was a secret room here!". They all go into the secret room. Barnabas and Julia pretend to be surprised that there's a coffin in there and say, "Why would someone put a coffin here?". Carolyn remarks, "It wasn't in here the last time I was in here.". Julia asks when she was in here last, but Carolyn refuses to tell. She exclaims, "I know who this coffin is for, it's for you!", pointing to Barnabas. Barnabas and Julia are shocked, thinking Carolyn knows Barnabas' secret, but Carolyn then points at Julia and continues, "Or for you! One of you will end up in this coffin if you don't leave Collinsport!".

Barnabas and Julia leave Carolyn, who doesn't seem quite sane, and leave the cemetery. Walking near Collinwood, they decide that the first thing they must do is find another hiding place for the coffin. Suddenly, they notice a strange blue light in one of the windows of Collinwood and go inside to investigate. They don't find the light inside, but do notice that everything they touched when they were first there are gone - papers, Elizabeth's diary, etc. They also find a knife with dried blood on the table. They hear music coming from upstairs and walk out into the foyer and start up the stairs to investigate, but as soon as they get to the stairs, the music stops. Julia, frightened, tells Barnabas they should leave, but Barnabas insists that they stay and investigate. They go up the stairs. Unbeknownst to them, Carolyn is standing just outside the front doors watching them.

Carolyn goes to the sheriff and asks him to do something for her.

Upstairs, Julia and Barnabas go to Julia's old room. Julia opens the armoire and is surprised to find all her clothes still there, just as she left them in 1970 when she went to parallel time. She takes out a strongbox and is shocked to see that the lock has been broken off and the box opened. She tells Barnabas that inside are all her notes on her treatment of his vampirism, that someone may have read them and knows his secret. Barnabas notes that the lock looks like it was broken off a long time ago. Suddenly, their candle blows out and there's a lot of ghostly manifestations. Barnabas asks if there's a spirit in the room that it identifies itself, but it doesn't. Barnabas and Julia flee. The blue light appears....

They go back downstairs and decide to go check out the old house. But as they go out the door, they run into the sheriff outside. He asks them "What are you doing in there?" and take them in for questioning.

At the police station, the sheriff asks Barnabas and Julia what they were doing at Collinwood. Barnabas answers, "I own the old house. Elizabeth Collins gave it to my father in the late 60's". The sheriff says, "But you weren't at the old house.". Barnabas replies that he wanted to see what happened to the rest of the property. The sheriff suggests that they leave Collinsport, that it isn't healthy to stay here. After Barnabas and Julia leave, Carolyn comes in from another room, where she has been listening. The sheriff says, "Sorry, but I did all I could legally do.". Carolyn tells him to wait here, that she has something she wants to bring and show him, something she doesn't understand.

Barnabas and Julia go back to Collinwood. Just as they get to the door, it mysteriously opens for them by itself. Inside, they hear the music coming from upstairs again. The music stops. Then they hear footsteps in the hall upstairs. Barnabas goes upstairs to investigate but finds nothing. They then hear a noise in the drawing room. They go in there but find nothing there either. They reach the conclusion that whatever it is, it is capable of moving...

Carolyn returns to the sheriff's office carrying an old photo album. She shows him a picture of Julia, dated 1970. The sheriff is puzzled, saying it looks just like the woman he saw earlier, that it even has the same hairdo, but adds, "That's impossible. It can't be same woman. No one looks the same after 25 years.". He asks if she has any pictures of the "man's father". Carolyn tells him that it's strange, but that she looked all over for one, but couldn't find one, that the only picture she has is an oil portrait of a man who looks like him from 1797.

At Collinwood, Barnabas and Julia are in the drawing room. They hear the music coming from upstairs again. They go out into the foyer. Barnabas tells Julia to stay in the foyer while he goes upstairs to investigate. As he is going up the stairs, he suddenly exclaims, "Julia! Watch out!". She quickly moves, just in time to get out of the way of a heavy statue, which falls and crashes to the floor. Terrified, they flee Collinwood. Outside, they look back and see a sinister looking man staring at them from a window.

The year is 1995, and the Great House of Collinwood still rises from the cliffs above the sea. But it is now deserted and in ruins. It is here, 25 years into the future, that Barnabas and Julia find themselves after their escape from Parallel Time, searching to discover the causes of the devastation around them.

Barnabas and Julia go to the old house. It looks a little dusty and neglected, but is in much better condition than Collinwood. They discuss the strange man they saw in the window. Barnabas remarks that he noticed that the man appeared to be dressed in clothing from another century. Julia, still shaken, tells him she felt an intense aura of hatred and evil coming from the man. Seeing that she is still shaken, Barnabas tells her to stay here while he goes to Carolyn's to ask her if she knows anything about the man. Julia replies that she's too frightened to stay here by herself and goes with him.

Mrs. Johnson is with Carolyn at Carolyn's house. Mrs. Johnson tells her she knows she's planning to go to Collinwood again and warns her against it. Carolyn says cryptically, "I must take him there.". She asks Mrs. Johnson if she ever goes there. Mrs. Johnson replies in a shocked voice, "NO! Of course not!". Carolyn replies, "Then who's getting the place ready?". Mrs. Johnson asks "For what?". Carolyn replies, "For when everyone comes back, Elizabeth, Roger and Quentin...". Mrs. Johnson tells her that they're never coming back. Carolyn insists that they are. Mrs. Johnson notices that Carolyn is looking at a photo and asks what she's looking at. Carolyn replies that it's a picture from when times were good and shows it to her. Mrs. Johnson looks at it. It is a picture of Quentin and Maggie. They are apparently at a picnic as Maggie is holding a picnic basket and Quentin a round drink cooler. Mrs. Johnson points to something in the background and gasps, "That's him! That's the first time we saw him!". Carolyn looks and replies, "That's just a shadow.". Mrs. Johnson retorts, "But a shadow that would fall over all of us!". Carolyn gets upset and tears the picture up. There's a knock at the door. It's Barnabas and Julia. Carolyn demands that they leave, but they don't. They describe the man they saw and ask about him. Mrs. Johnson gasps, "It was him!" and runs out of the house in fear. Barnabas asks Carolyn to tell them who the man was, but she refuses and they leave. Carolyn takes a dress out of a box and says, "My party dress. He always liked it when I wore my party dress...".

Barnabas and Julia return to the old house and find Mrs. Johnson there. Apparently she's having a change of heart about telling them. Barnabas asks, "Whose spirit was that we saw at Collinwood?". Mrs. Johnson seems to change her mind again and says, "Oh, what's the point of telling you. You can't do anything about it.". They tells her that that's not true, that they CAN do something about it. Mrs. Johnson asks how. They remind her that she noted herself that they look just like they did when they disappeared in 1970 and explain that they got here by some sort of time warp and tells her that when they get back to 1970 they can stop what happened if they know what happened. Mrs. Johnson starts to tell them what happened. She tells them that it all started one day when she walked by the room the children called the "play room". Suddenly, she sees the man looking at her from outside one of the windows. He disappears. She exclaims, "I cannot tell!" and runs out of the house. Julia tells Barnabas that the man must have been here and stopped Mrs. Johnson from talking, that she felt the aura of evil. She asks Barnabas if he felt it. He replies that he did not, that his special condition must have protected him from it. They decide to go outside and look for Mrs. Johnson.

In the woods, Mrs. Johnson feels a hand on her shoulder. She turns to see who it is. It is the man...

Barnabas and Julia find Mrs. Johnson. She is sitting at the base of a tree. Her eyes are wide open in a look of shock*. Barnabas and Julia hear someone coming and hide behind some trees. It's Carolyn. She sees Mrs. Johnson and says, "Mrs. Johnson. You shouldn't be out here this time of night!". She tries to rouse her but cannot. Barnabas and Julia come out of hiding and Barnabas tells Carolyn she can't help Mrs. Johnson anymore. Carolyn realizes Mrs. Johnson is dead and blames them for it.

Barnabas and Julia go to Collinwood to look for the 'playroom' Mrs. Johnson had mentioned. They do not know where to look because there was no 'playroom' when they were at Collinwood. While they are in the drawing room, they see Carolyn come in. They hide. She does not see them and goes upstairs. They follow. Carolyn goes into a room. Barnabas remarks to Julia, "I don't recall ever seeing this room before." They hear music and Carolyn's voice coming from inside. Barnabas turns the knob and starts to open the door. * Clarice Blackburn (Mrs. Johnson) has problems keeping her eyes wide open and staring during this scene. At first, her eyelids flutter, then she actually blinks several times.

Collinwood in the year 1995, where Barnabas and Julia, escaping from Parallel Time, have found themselves in the future. To their horror, they have discovered the Great House in ruins and the family mysteriously vanished without a trace. The few people they have met have been unable or unwilling to tell them what happened. They know only that the catastrophe, whatever it was, occurred in the year 1970. Carolyn, alone, remains, but she has gone mad and cannot or will not reveal the truth.

When Julia and Barnabas enter the room, they see, in addition to Carolyn, what look like two other people, but they only get a glimpse of them before they disappear and do not get a good look at them. Barnabas and Julia ask Carolyn who they were. Carolyn claims there was no one else in the room and demands that they get out. They asks her where the music came from. She denies that there was any music. They ask he who she was talking to. She tells them she was talking to herself. Barnabas and Julia note that this room, which is filled with toys, is very different from the rest of the house, that not only is it not in ruins, it seems to be well-kept, with neither the dust nor cobwebs of 25 years. Carolyn continues to shrilly demand that they leave, and they do. After they leave, Carolyn starts talking to someone named 'Tad', asking him to come back, but nothing happens.

Stokes opens his mail and reads something about Quentin. Barnabas and Julia come and demand that he tell what happened to the Collins. He refuses again. Julia picks up the letter from his desk, begins to reads it and exclaims, "Quentin's in a mental hospital!!!". Stokes' mood seems to change and he tells them, "Yes, and the strange thing is that he doesn't ever seem to age, that he looks the same today as he did 25 years ago.". Barnabas and Julia ask if they can see him. Stokes replies that they can't, that Quentin's just escaped. They ask what happened to the Collins family. Stokes tells them that he really doesn't know much more than they do, that he was in Europe when it happened and that even after 25 years, he's only managed to get part of the story. He tells them that whatever happened happened one night in the fall of 1970, that afterwards, Quentin was found wandering through the woods and Carolyn cowering in the tower room, both mad, and that the rest of the Collins family just disappeared without a trace. He tells them that that's all he knows.

After Barnabas and Julia leave, Carolyn comes and accuses Stokes of telling them about the secret of the playroom.

Barnabas and Julia go back to the playroom to investigate. They find a birthday card which appears to be new. It is signed," To Tad from Carrie". They wonder who Tad and Carrie are.

Barnabas and Julia return to the old house. Julia asks Barnabas if he thinks Stokes was telling the truth about how little he knew. Barnabas replies that he thinks he was. He says that he Stokes' puzzlement about Quentin's continuing youthful looks indicates that he certainly doesn't know about Quentin's portrait. He adds that Quentin's continuing youth indicates that the portrait still exists and has not bee destroyed. They hear a noise upstairs and go to investigate.

At Stokes' house, Carolyn continues to whine to Stokes, saying that Barnabas and Julia ruined the birthday party and that she'll have to wait a whole year for another one.

Upstairs, Barnabas and Julia enter a room in which stands an easel with a covered painting. They uncover the painting and are surprised to see that it is the portrait of Quentin. But it is no longer a picture of Quentin as a young man - the figure in the portrait is extremely aged and sickly looking. Suddenly, a man comes running in with a knife screaming, "I've got to destroy him!!!". He raises the knife and prepares to destroy the painting, but Barnabas easily overcomes and disarms him. It is Quentin. They ask him if he knows who they are. He tells them he recognizes them, but that they can't be the people they appear to be, that the attendant must be playing another trick on him, that the attendant is always playing tricks on him.

Carolyn rambles about getting gifts to give the rest of the family when they come back. Stokes asks Carolyn why she's so sure that the rest of the family will return some day. She tells him she not sure why, just that she's sure they'll return. He tries to get Carolyn what happened on that night in 1970 but she tells him she can't remember.

Julia and Barnabas try to get Quentin to tell them what happened in 1970, but all he'll say is "I should have prevented it. I didn't and deserve to die...". Barnabas asks him what he knows about the playroom, saying he wants to know about it because it didn't exist when he and Julia left. Quentin seems to become fearful and tells him he doesn't know anything about it and claims that it was always there. They tell Quentin they'll take him there to jog his memory. At first Quentin fearfully refuses to go, but then tells them he'll gladly go with them to prove them the playroom doesn't mean anything.

Barnabas, Julia and Quentin go to Collinwood and go up to the playroom door. They hear music coming from inside. Quentin starts to become fearful again. They open the door. Quentin looks inside, screams at what he sees and runs off in terror. Barnabas and Julia look to see what frightened him. Standing in the room is David...

The Great House of Collinwood in the year 1995. For reasons that are still a mystery to them, Barnabas and Julia have found themselves projected into the future after their escape from Parallel Time. And in the future they have come to, Collinwood is in ruins, most of the family has disappeared. On this night, Barnabas and Julia have found a half-mad Quentin, who remembers nothing of what has happened to the house and to the family. They decide to take Quentin to a strange children's playroom that exists in 1995, but did not exist in 1970, for Barnabas believes that the playroom may hold the key to the mystery.

Barnabas tries to talk to David, who looks just as he did in 1970, but David says nothing and vanishes. Barnabas tells Julia that he's sure the playroom, which he is sure did not exist when they left for parallel time in 1970, is the key to what happened.

Quentin, downstairs, tries to open the front doors to leave but find them locked. He hears a noise in the drawing room and goes in there and begs, "Leave me alone! I didn't want to come here, they made me come here!". He then hears an electronic sounding noise and becomes even more terrified. He goes out to the foyer and sees the mysterious man standing on the landing. He now becomes totally terrified and runs back to the drawing room and curls up on the ground in a fetal position. A man walks up to him. He looks up, expecting to see the mysterious man, but finds that it's only Barnabas, with Julia behind him. Quentin exclaims that he saw "him" on the landing. Barnabas tells him that that's impossible, that they just came that way and saw nobody there. Quentin goes out into the foyer and looks and finds no one on the landing. Quentin moans that they're locked in, trapped at Collinwood, Barnabas tries the front door and they open easily. Quentin flees from the house in terror.

As Barnabas and Julia leave Collinwood, they see David in the garden with a girl about the same age. Barnabas and Julia hide behind some trees and spies on them. David and the girl start to dance. The dance looks very old fashioned and Julia, puzzled, remarks to Barnabas, "That doesn't look like a dance from 1970...". David and the girl finish dancing and start to walk away. Julia calls to them, but they vanish into thin air...

Barnabas and Julia return to the old house. Quentin, already there, seems preoccupied and does not see them come in. He appears to be talking to no one, saying, "Daphne, why won't you come to me? Is it because of all the tragedy, because I failed?". Then he sees them and stops. They ask him who "Daphne" is. He refuses to tell them. Barnabas asks him about David being in the playroom. Quentin replies that that wasn't David, it was Tad. Barnabas asks who "Tad" is, but Quentin refuses to tell them.

Later, Julia is dozing off in a chair. Quentin comes downstairs. Julia awakens and sees him there. He tells her he wants to see Barnabas. Surprised, she tells him that Barnabas won't be available until night, that he knows that. Quentin tells her to tell him when Barnabas gets back and goes back upstairs. Julia sees the girl she and Barnabas saw earlier dancing with David looking in through the window. The girl beckons to Julia, then walks away. Julia rushes outside and follows her.

Julia follows the girl to Collinwood. She follows her upstairs and sees her go into the playroom. But when Julia gets into the playroom, she finds no one in there. Suddenly, the doors close by themselves. Julia tries to open them by finds them locked. She turns and finds the mysterious man standing in the room...

The year 1995 and Collinwood is abandoned and in ruins, with Carolyn and Quentin both gone mad. This is what Barnabas Collins and Julia Hoffman find when the disturbance in time brings them to this year after their escape from the parallel band. To their amazement, they have seen the ghosts of David and a strange young girl, and have discovered the spirit that rules Collinwood is a ghost whose mere presence corrupts the surrounding air.

The man starts to walk toward Julia. Julia, terrified, screams, "NO! Stay away from me!". But the man keeps coming...

At the old house, Barnabas awakens and goes up to the living room. He is surprised to find Stokes sitting there. Stokes explains that he found no one home and waited. Barnabas replies that that's strange, that Julia should be here. Stokes replies that she isn't and asks Barnabas where HE was. Barnabas lies that he was in the basement inspecting a flaw in the foundation that existed in 1970 to see if it got worse.

At Collinwood, Julia comes down the stairs and leaves Collinwood. From the landing, the strange man watches her leave...

At the old house, Barnabas asks Stokes if the names "Tad" and "Carrie" mean anything to him. Stokes replies that he's never heard of them before. Quentin comes down, sees Stokes and attacks him, putting his hands around his throat and trying to strangle him. Barnabas manages to pull Quentin off Stokes and asks him why he's trying to kill him. Quentin shouts, "Because it's his fault that all this happened. Because of his phony exorcism. He told us he would get rid of him, but all he did was get him angry...". Stokes runs out of the house in terror.

Later, Julia returns. Barnabas tells her what happened between Quentin and Stokes. He tells her he thinks they should have another exorcism. Julia recommends against it. She starts to tell him something starting with, "While you were asleep..", but sees the man looking at her through the window and stops. He asks her why she's stopped. She tells him, "Oh, because it was probably just my imagination. While you were asleep, I thought I felt that evil presence here." They hear a noise coming from upstairs and Barnabas goes up to investigate. Julia writes a note, leaves it on the desk and leaves. Barnabas comes back downstairs with Quentin. Quentin complains of having an excruciating headache. Barnabas tells him Julia will give him something for it, but when he looks around, he finds that she's not there. He finds her note on the table. It just says she had to go somewhere.

Julia returns to the playroom and sees a shadowy figure there. She asks it who it is by it doesn't say anything and disappears. The mysterious man appears. Julia tells him she saw another spirit in the room, that it appeared to be a woman, and that she had smelled the scent of lilac. She asks the man what he summoned her here for.

Stokes returns to the old house. He fearfully asks if Quentin is around. Barnabas tells him he's upstairs but he's sure he won't come down. He tells Stokes about his plans to have another exorcism. Stokes recommends against it, but tells him he'll assist if he decides to go through with it.

At Collinwood, Julia tells the mysterious man, "I understand what you want me to do" and leaves.

Julia returns to Collinwood. She surprises Barnabas by telling him that she thinks it would be best if they leave and go back to 1970 without doing anything more here. Barnabas is shocked and refuses. Julia goes upstairs. Barnabas suddenly begins to smell the scent of lilac and sense someone in the room and demands, "Who are you? Show yourself!". A ghostly woman appears (Kate Jackson!). Barnabas asks her what she wants. Suddenly, the room fills with a mysterious wind which blows all the candles out, plunging the room into darkness. The woman disappears. The wind stops. Barnabas relights the candles. He sees a piece of paper on the desk. He picks it up and reads it. On it are three handwritten words, "She will die!".

Collinwood in the year 1995, abandoned and in ruins, found by Barnabas Collins and Julia Hoffman in their escape from Parallel Time. And here they have discovered that an evil spirit presides unchallenged over the great estate. An evil spirit so potent that he has, unknown to Barnabas, gained command over the mind and actions of Julia herself. But there are other ghosts who walk the night, and they too are not without powers of their own.

Barnabas calls Julia. She comes back down into the living room. Barnabas tells her about the what happened and about the note and wonders who the 'she' referred to in it is. He tells Julia it's strange that both the ghost of the man and the woman were dressed in 19th century clothes while both the children were dressed in 1970 clothes. Quentin comes running downstairs and exclaims, "She was here! I could feel it!". Barnabas asks who he thinks was here. Quentin replies, "Daphne. I can still smell the lilac. Every time I've seen her, I've smelled lilac". Barnabas asks who "Daphne" is, but Quentin replies that he doesn't really know, that he's only seen her a few times.

Barnabas and Julia go to the old house, Barnabas having decided to look in the family history to see if there's any mention of Daphne. Julia tells him not to bother, that she's read the entire history of the Collins family and didn't find any "Daphne" in it, but Barnabas insists on looking anyway to make sure. Barnabas goes into the drawing room to look for the history as Julia stays in the foyer. Barnabas finds the history and begins to read it. Suddenly, the candles blow out and the history is wrenched from his hands by an unseen force and thrown across the room. Julia cries, "Barnabas!" and he runs out to the foyer to see what's wrong. She tells him that she saw the ghost of the boy but that he had disappeared. He tells her what happened in the drawing room and they go in to look for the history. Barnabas finds it near the fireplace. He notices the smell of lilacs in the room again. He opens the history and is shocked to find that the section covering the early 19th century have been torn out and are missing. He tells Julia that this must have just happened, that the book wasn't like that just a few minutes ago.

Carolyn is in her cottage looking through a photo album. She is having trouble identifying people and it takes her a long time to identify people as 'Elizabeth', 'Roger', etc. She finds a girl she cannot identify. Barnabas comes in and tells her, "That's you, Carolyn". He asks her who "Daphne" is. Carolyn replies that she doesn't know. Barnabas points to the picture of Carolyn in 1970 and tells her, "You used to be such a courageous, feisty girl. I'm sure you still are. Won't you please help me? I know you can.". But Carolyn still insists she doesn't know. After Barnabas leaves, Carolyn looks at the picture and ponders Barnabas's words about how feisty and courageous she was.

Barnabas returns to the old house and tells Julia what happened. Julia replies, "You should have known she wouldn't tell you anything.". Barnabas is shocked at the way she says this and tells her, "You sound almost pleased about that, Julia!". She replies that it must be his imagination, that what he heard was actually exasperation. He asks her for the note, saying he's thinking of having another exorcism and wants to use that note in it. Julia replies that he has it. He replies that he thought he gave it to her. She replies that she doesn't have it be promises to look for it.

The man and Daphne are at Collinwood. Daphne gives the note to Gerard. Gerard tears it up...

Carolyn goes to the old house looking for Barnabas. Quentin tells her Barnabas isn't there, that he's gone to see Professor Stokes. They then recognize each other and greet each other warmly. Carolyn writes a note and tells Quentin to give it to Barnabas when he returns. After Carolyn leaves, Quentin reads the note and finds that it says, "Meet me at Collinwood. I will be waiting t here. I will try to tell you everything I remember..". He exclaims, "EVERYTHING SHE REMEMBERS?! NO! NO ONE MUST KNOW!", crumples the note up and winds his arm up to throw it into the fire. Barnabas comes in, sees him and says, "Is that the note from Daphne?". Quentin answers meekly, "No. It's the note from Carolyn". Barnabas takes it from him and reads it and exclaims incredulously, "You were going to keep THIS from me?".

Barnbas and Julia go to Collinwood. Barnabas finds Carolyn sitting at the desk, pen in hand, apparent writing something. He tells her, "You don't know how much this means to me. I know this is hard for you..." but, receiving no reply, touches her on the shoulder and asks, "Carolyn?". She falls out of the chair and onto the ground.

Collinwood in 1995, a ruined, deserted house where Julia and Barnabas cannot discover what catastrophe occurred in 1970 and destroyed the Collins family. But this night, there is hope they will finally uncovered the secret, for a mad Carolyn has sent Barnabas a note telling him to meet her in Collinwood, because she remembers what actually happened.

Barnabas runs out into the foyer and tells Julia that Carolyn is dead. They go into the drawing room. They are shocked to find Carolyn gone. Barnabas reads what Carolyn was writing and shows it to Julia. It is very cryptic, bearing odd disconnected phrases:

"The night of the sun and the moon",
"The picnic",
"The murder",
"The unfinished horoscope",
"The night I sang my song",
"The destruction of Rose Cottage."

Julia tells Barnabas they're the meaningless rambling of a crazy woman, but he tells her he's convinced that they're important, that Carolyn was writing down things to help herself remember. Barnabas tells Julia to go get the sheriff. She refuses, saying they shouldn't because they shouldn't be at Collinwood in the first place. Barnabas that she's been acting very strangely lately and asks her again to go get the sheriff. This time, she leaves to do so.

Barnabas goes back into the drawing room, wondering what happened to Carolyn's body. Then he remembers the secret panel to the right of the fireplace. He puts down his candle and opens it. When he turns back to get his candle, he is surprised to see the man standing there. He demands to know what he did with Carolyn, but the spirit doesn't say anything. He hears the front door slam and Julia calling out, "Barnabas.." and looks toward the front doors. When he turns back, the spirit is gone. Julia comes in and tells him she got the sheriff. Barnabas tells her what happened, and remarks that he's never seen such evil as he saw in the eyes of the spirit. Julia asks, "If he's so evil, why didn't he do anything to you?". Barnabas replies, "I don't think he could..". (The implication is that he couldn't harm vampires). After Barnabas leaves the room, Julia calls out quietly, "Gerard? Are you here?".

Barnabas, Julia and the sheriff go to examine the playroom. They are shocked to find Carolyn's body there, all laid out with flowers and burning candles. Barnabas tells the sheriff that a spirit named Gerard* is responsible for this and that he's planning on having an exorcism. Julia is shocked. Barnabas and the sheriff leave. Julia stays, saying she wants to be with Carolyn. After Barnabas and the sheriff leave, the spirit appears and appears to tell Julia something psychically. Julia tells him she understands what must be done...

The sheriff comes to the old house and finds Quentin there. He tells him about Carolyn's death and tells him that the autopsy found that she died of heart failure. Quentin angrily tells the sheriff that Barnabas was responsible for her death, that he made her go to Collinwood. He starts to ramble on crazily. When the sheriff asks him if he's ever heard the name 'Gerard', Quentin reacts with terror. Julia returns. Quentin continues to ramble. Julia tells the sheriff to excuse him for this, that he's been in Stormcrest, a mental hospital, recently. The sheriff remarks that from his behavior, he looks like he still belongs in there. Quentin replies that he'd like to go back there. The sheriff tells him he'll take him there. The sheriff asks where Barnabas is. Julia tells the sheriff that when he gets back, she has something important about Barnabas to tell him.

Barnabas awakens and opens his coffin. He finds himself staring into a cross, shrieks and turns his head. Standing above him, holding the cross, is the sheriff. The sheriff says, "Barnabas Collins, I know all about you!"

Episode 1070
1995/1970

(COL 22/DISK 1 #9)

Collinwood in the year 1995. Barnabas Collins has escaped from Parallel Time only to find himself in even greater peril, for the great mansion is ruined, deserted. Ruled by a ghost who has even managed, without Barnabas even knowing it, to turn Julia Hoffman against her friend. And in the coffin room of the Old House, dusk comes, and with it a new enemy.

The sheriff aims a gun at Barnabas's heart and prepares to shoot. Suddenly, the ghost of Carrie appears. The sheriff reacts with terror and backs away from her, saying "Stay away from me!". Barnabas takes advantage of the distraction and attacks and strangles the sheriff.

Upstairs, Julia is waiting with the ghost of Gerard. She is crying, devastated by her betrayal of Barnabas. She says in an anguished voice, "No... Soon I'll hear the sound of the gunshot, of the silver bullets..". She hears the cellar door and looks, expecting to see the sheriff, but she's shocked to see it's Barnabas. The ghost of Gerard disappears before Barnabas sees him. Barnabas tells Julia what happened downstairs, that the sheriff almost shot him with a pistol he could see was loaded with silver bullets, but that he managed to kill him first. He asks, "Who could have told him?". Julia cries and tells him that she told him. Barnabas asks why, but she tells him she can't tell him. He tells her he realizes that the ghost must have taken control of her. She refuses to admit this, but tells him she's a danger to him now and asks him to go back to Angelique's room and escape, as he'll be in danger as soon as the sun sets, perhaps from her. She tells him she can't go with him. He tells her, "I can't leave without you!" and tells her he'll stay as long as he can before dawn and find out what he can and then take her with him.

Barnabas calls Stokes. When Stokes comes, Barnabas asks him to help him hold a sťance to contact Carolyn and try to get her to tell her what she knows. They hold the sťance. The spirit of Carolyn speaks through Julia and repeats what she wrote in the note:

"The night of the sun and moon",
"The picnic",
"The murder",
"The unfinished horoscope",
"The night I sang my song",
"The destruction of Rose Cottage."

Suddenly, a ghostly wind blows through the room and Carolyn's spirit leaves. Gerard appear outside and looks through the window. Stokes gets up, looks at the spirit in fear. Gerard touches the window. Stokes stumbles around and falls sitting into a chair. Barnabas examines Stokes and exclaims, "He's dead". Julia screams and runs out of the old house.

Julia runs to the playroom at Collinwood. Gerard is there waiting for her. He gives her a knife and appears to tell her something telepathically. Julia asks, "Must I?" Gerard replies telepathically. Julia continues, "I knew I would have to do this!" She raises the knife, says, "Soon I will be with you!", raises the knife and prepares to stab herself. But Barnabas comes running into the room and screams, "Julia! Drop the knife!". Julia drops the knife. Barnabas tells the ghost, "I'll never let you have her!". The ghost touches Julia on the forehead and Julia falls to the floor. Barnabas goes to Julia and finds that she is very weak and appears to be dying. Gerard leaves. Outside, he locks the doors. Inside, Barnabas tries the door but finds that it's locked. He looks for another way out by does not find one. Suddenly, the ghost of Carrie appears. He begs, "You helped me once! Please help us again!" The ghost walks through a wall and disappears. Suddenly, a door appears in the wall in the spot she walked through. Barnabas opens the door and takes Julia inside what appears to be some sort of secret passage. They walk up a flight of stairs, where they find another door. Julia groans in pain. Barnabas opens the door and carries Julia through it. They find themselves in a hallway. Barnabas puts Julia in a chair. He hears a voice asks demandingly, "Who are you? What are you doing here?" He turns and sees Carrie standing there...
