Tape Date: December 22, 1970
Air Date: January 4, 1971 Monday
Writer: Gordon Russell
Director: Henry Kaplan
Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins
David Selby as Quentin Collins
Humbert Allen Astredo as Charles Dawson
Lee Beery as Joanna Mills
Virginia Vestoff as Samantha Collins
James Storm as Gerard Stiles
John Beal as Judge Vail

Judge Vail, shocked, asks "Who did you say you were?" The woman replies "Joanna Mills". Barnabas whispers to Quentin, "Is it?" Quentin replies, "I can't believe it, but it is!" Dawson objects, saying she must be an imposter. Barnabas replies that that will be very easy to establish, that all they have to do is compare her to the self-portrait the Dawson had entered as evidence. Judge Vail announces that the woman will be allowed to testify if it can be proven she is Joanna Mills. He announces that court will be adjourned until 2:00 to allow the court to compare the woman to the portrait and compare her handwriting to the signature.

At Collinwood, Gerard remarks to Samantha, "Too bad Quentin's trial isn't open to the public. I'd love to watch the spectacle!" He notices that she doesn't respond to his "joke" and looks worried. He asks her what's wrong. She explains that she is still worried about Joanna's spirit apparently having come back. He asks why. She replies that she's afraid that Joanna is angry with her because she's been forging letters from her.

In jail, Barnabas and Quentin are discussing the trial. Joanna comes in. Quentin asks Barnabas to let him speak to her in private and Barnabas leaves. Quentin asks Joanna to explain everything. She tells him it's almost 2:00 and they don't have time. He asks her if she's been writing the letters to him. She replies that she did not send them, but that she wouldn't know if she wrote them without seeing them. She tells him that she had written some letters to him while she was in the asylum that were never sent, that someone might have gotten hold of them and been sending them to him. Quentin tells him about Daphne coming to Collinwood with the intention of killing him. He tells Joanna that Daphne she changed her mind and things are different now. He tells her they've "got to talk", but before they can, Barnabas comes in and announces that the Judges have come back and court is about to reconvene.

Court reconvenes. Judge Vail announces that they are convinced that the woman is indeed Joanna Mills and that they will allow her to testify. She takes the stand. The court asks her explain where she's been. Joanna explains that after she "released herself" from the hospital, she went to Boston where she's been living quietly. The judge asks her, "What about the body they found that was identified as you?" She replies that she knows nothing about it, that they were obviously mistaken. Asked about the letter Trask found in the tree, she explains, "I came back to visit Collinsport about three days ago and walked by an oak tree where Quentin and I used to meet. I found a note where we used to leave notes to each other and took it, thinking that Quentin had somehow learned that I had come and wanted to surprise me. I took it, wrote a reply and put it in the tree. Barnabas asks the court that in light of this testimony Trask's testimony about Quentin raising the dead be stricken since it is obvious that Joanna is not dead and it was she that Trask saw. The court agrees, and further adds, "It also brings into doubt some other earlier testimony." Dawson asks for a recess. The court adjourns till 10:00 tomorrow morning.

Outside, Dawson goes to Gerard and tells him what happened. He tells him that they're in trouble and need some strong evidence. He tells Gerard he thinks they might have to use the head of Judah Zachary. Gerard is still reluctant about this, tells him he'll think about it and tells him he'll tell him tomorrow. Gerard then exclaims, "Oh no! I've got to go tell Samantha about Joanna!"

Joanna goes to Collinwood. Samantha answers the door. Joanna identifies herself and asks to see her sister Daphne. Samantha tells her Daphne is upstairs. Joanna starts up the stairs. Gerard comes in and, seeing the look of shock on Samantha's face, starts to ask what's wrong but then sees Joanna walking on the landing and realizes what it is . He remarks, "I think you need a brandy" and goes into the drawing room to pour her one. She follows him in there. She gasps, "But she's dead!" Gerard replies, "No she isn't. It's obvious she's alive. They must have made a mistake about the body". Samantha continues to claim, "She's dead!" Gerard tells her, "Get a hold of yourself. Any sane person can see she's not dead." Joanna blurts out, "She's dead! I know because I killed her!"

James Storm as Gerard Stiles
Lee Beery as Joanna Mills

Gerard asks Samantha to explain, saying Joanna's sudden appearance badly hurt their case against Quentin and he needs to know everything that happened to Joanna. Samantha explains that it all began with two letters. The first was one from the asylum to Quentin telling him Joanna had gone insane and was in there. She tells him Quentin never saw the letter because it came while he was away at sea. She tells Gerard she went to visit Joanna at the asylum and found that she was indeed mad and figured she wouldn't have to worry about her as a rival for Quentin again. But later another letter arrived, this time from Joanna to Quentin telling him she was well now, was going to leave the asylum soon and wanted to see him. Samantha tells Gerard that Quentin was still at sea and she arranged a meeting with Joanna on the grounds of the asylum. She tells Gerard she got into an fight with her over Quentin and accidentally pushed Joanna off the cliff onto the rocks below. Gerard suggests, "Maybe there was a high tide and she fell into the water and survived, and they found another body and mistook it for her." Samantha dismisses this and fearfully tells him she thinks Joanna has come back from the dead to get revenge.

Daphne walks in through the front door into the foyer. She sees Joanna coming down the stairs and, thinking it is Joanna's ghost coming for her, screams, "Help! She's here to kill me!" and runs into the drawing room to Gerard. Gerard explains to her that it is Joanna, but that she's alive and not a ghost. Joanna comes into the drawing room. Daphne touches her hand and finds that she is indeed not a ghost. They greet each other and go upstairs to talk.

Upstairs, Joanna apologizes to Daphne, saying, "I didn't know I would be such a shock to everyone." They talk. Daphne explains to Joanna that she was frightened by her because the letters she's been receiving from her made her think she was a threat to her. Joanna, puzzled, replies that she hasn't been sending any letters to her. Daphne tells her that she has, that they were signed by her and were in her handwriting. Joanna asks to see one of these letters. Daphne shows her one. Joanna tells her, "I didn't write this. It isn't in my handwriting." She shows the letter to Daphne and points out, "Look, these aren't my T's and S's."

Joanna comes downstairs to the drawing room, says goodbye to Gerard and Samantha and leaves. Samantha is still terrified, convinced that Joanna has come back from the dead to get vengeance. Gerard tells her to go upstairs and try to relax. Samantha goes upstairs. Gerard remarks, "Joanna will be very useful to me, both in my plans for Samantha and Daphne". He goes to the fire, takes out his occult charm and casts another spell on Daphne.

Upstairs, Daphne has another dream in which she and Gerard lie in bed, professing their love for one another and kissing. She awakens and goes to the room in the dream and finds Gerard there. Seeing that she is now ready, Gerard takes her hand and asks, "Daphne, will you marry me?"

Daphne tells Gerard she'll have to think about it. Samantha comes into the room, sees them together and becomes angry. Daphne leaves. Samantha tells Gerard she is still afraid of Joanna. She asks, "Why does she pretend she doesn't know me?" She tells him she is very angry that he won't do anything about Joanna and threatens to tell Quentin or Barnabas about what he's been doing. He slaps her and calms her down and reassures her that he'll help her with Joanna. After she leaves, he thinks to herself "You're the problem I've got to solve, not Joanna..."

Joanna visits Quentin in jail. She tells him that Daphne had shown her one of the letters she had been receiving. She tells him she didn't write it. She shows him her necklace and tells him it's the only thing she still has to remind her of their time together. She asks, "Do you remember the night you gave it to me? It was my birthday. You said, 'By your next birthday, you'll be living in Collinwood, you'll be Mrs. Quentin Collins." She tells him that when he gets out of jail, they'll finally be able to make that come true. Quentin asks, "Do you remember the night I told you Samantha wouldn't give me a divorce, the night separated? Whatever we had together died that night. We won't be able to recapture it. It's over between us." Joanna asks, "What is it, are you in love with someone else?" Quentin replies, "I'm in love with Daphne."

At Collinwood, Samantha asks Daphne what her sister Joanna had said about her. Daphne replies, that she didn't say anything about her, that she didn't mention her at all. She remarks, "You might be interested to know that I showed her one of the letters I've been getting and she told me it wasn't from her." She asks Samantha about the spirit she claimed to have seen behind her by the window. She tells her it obviously couldn't have been Joanna since Joanna is alive and tells her she thinks someone's trying to frighten her out of the house. Samantha becomes angry and exclaims, "And you think it's me!" and storms out of the room. In the foyer, she runs into Gerard and whispers to him, "She suspects me! Do something about it!" and goes upstairs. Gerard goes into the drawing room and tells Daphne he wants to talk to her, but she tells him, "I need to think!" and leaves.

Gerard takes out his occult charm and starts to cast a spell on Daphne, remarking, "This time you'll remember..."

Daphne goes to the room she dreamed about, wonders to herself, "Why is this the only place I feel at peace?", lies on the bed, and falls asleep. She has a dream in which Quentin tells Joanna, "My Joanna has come back to me!" They kiss. Daphne awakens and exclaims, "No! Joanna! What am I going to do?"

Later, in the drawing room, Daphne asks Joanna about her and Quentin. Joanna tells her about what happened at the jail earlier, but tells her she still loves Quentin. Samantha comes in and asks to speak to Joanna alone. Daphne leaves. Samantha reminds Joanna that they had met once, while she was going with her brother Randall, that it was one night when he was taking her to a concert. She asks her, "Wasn't there another time we met?" Joanna replies that she doesn't think so. Samantha tell her she isn't welcome at Collinwood anymore. Joanna replies, "Very well. Next time, I'll arrange to meet my sister in the village." She adds, "We'll meet again soon" and turns to leave. Samantha, in a frightened voice, gasps, "What do you mean by that?" Joanna replies, "Oh, nothing. I just mean it's a small village and well no doubt run into each other sooner or later".

Daphne goes to the jail and tells Quentin, "I can't see you anymore. Joanna still loves you." Quentin tries to explain to her that it's over between him and Joanna, but Daphne replies, "It wouldn't be if it weren't for me. I can't get between you and her." Quentin tries to get her to change her mind, but she tells him, "No. I don't feel the same about you anymore. I'm going to marry Gerard Stiles."

David Selby as Quentin Collins
Kate Jackson as Daphne Harridge
Kathy Cody as Carrie Stokes

Tom Happer as Jeremy Grimes
James Storm as Gerard Stiles

Quentin, shocked, wonders what could have happened. He asks Daphne to promise not to do anything until he gets out of jail. He tells her he is confident that he'll get out soon, that the prosecution doesn't have much of a case against him and that the only witness left is Mordecai Grimes, and the only thing he'll be able to say is that his cows died and claim he was responsible without any proof.

At Mordecai Grime's house, Mordecai Grimes reads a letter from Charles Dawson aloud. In it, Dawson tells him he isn't calling him to testify because he doesn't think his testimony is strong enough. Mordecai Grimes complains to his son Jeremy, "You know what this means. It means he's giving up. If Charles Dawson doesn't want me to testify, I'll have to go to someone higher up." Jeremy asks him who he means. His father refuses to tell him, remarking, "I know how you feel about this". Jeremy, angry, stalks out.

Jeremy and Carrie meet in the woods.

Gerard goes to the jail to talk to Quentin. They get into an argument about Daphne. Quentin angrily tells Gerard, "Desmond and Barnabas warned me you couldn't be trusted. Now I believe them!" He vows to do anything necessary to prevent him from marrying Daphne. Gerard asks him what he means. Quentin replies that he'll kill him if necessary. Gerard acts shocked and remarks, "But we're such friends! How can you say something like that?" Quentin replies, "What hypocrisy!" Gerard tries to apologize, saying falling in love is not a voluntary act, that he's guilty of nothing but falling in love.

Jeremy takes Carrie to the door of Collinwood. He tells her that this time, he insists on going in with her, that "it's time they told everyone about us." They go inside. In the foyer, Carrie begs Jeremy to leave. They hear a door. They turn and are shocked to see it's Mordecai Grimes. Mordecai, furious, exclaims to Jeremy, "Now I know where you've been going nights!" He orders them to stop seeing each other and takes Jeremy with him.

Gerard goes to Mordecai Grimes' house. He tells Grimes that he had heard he had come to Collinwood looking for him. Grimes shows him the letter. Gerard tells him he agrees with it, that he doesn't think his testimony is strong enough as it is now. He tells him he has searched Quentin's lab and found some very powerful evidence that everyone's overlooked. He tells him the evidence is so strong that it will almost certainly convict Quentin, but that he can't present it himself because he wants to maintain an appearance of neutrality. He asks Grimes to include it as part of his testimony and claim that he, Grimes, had found it. Grimes agrees to do so. Gerard tells him to write a letter to Dawson telling him that he, Grimes, had found important evidence that will convict Quentin and ask him to come here to look at it. Grimes writes the letter. Gerard leaves, saying he's going to Collinwood to get the evidence to bring here. Grimes calls his son Jeremy, gives him the note and tells him to deliver it to Charles Dawson. Jeremy takes the letter and leaves.

At Collinwood, Carrie thinks to herself that maybe if she went to Mordecai Grimes and told him how she and Jeremy feel about each other maybe he'll change his mind. She leaves to do so.

Gerard returns to Collinwood and goes into the drawing room. He goes to the fire and takes out his occult charm to cast a spell. He remarks, "I'm sorry, Mr. Grimes, I have nothing against you, but I'm going to have to sacrifice you to convict Quentin." He casts a spell to send a "Shadow of Death" to Mordecai Grimes.

At Mordcai Grimes house, the shadow, which is similar to the one Angelique sent against Jeb Hawkes, envelops a screaming Grimes.

At Collinwood, Gerard triumphantly remarks, "Quentin Collins WILL be found guilty!"

Carrie arrives at Mordecai Grimes' house. She finds Grimes lying on the floor. He is still alive, but just barely. He gasps, "Quentin Collins did this to me!" and dies. Carrie is shocked...

Jeremy returns from delivering the letter. He sees Carrie there and tells her, "Carrie! You've got to leave before my father sees you!". Carrie shows Jeremy the body of his father, which he had not seen because it was behind a table. Jeremy is grief-stricken. He asks Carrie if she knows what happened. She tells him his was still alive when she got here. Jeremy asks, "Did he say anything before he died?" Carrie, reluctantly, replies, "Yes. Yes he did..."

Gerard and Dawson gloat over what's happened. bas goes to the jail and tells Quentin about the death of Mordecai Grimes. Quentin asks how he died. Barnabas replies that they don't know yet, that they're still waiting for the coroner's report. He warns him that the prosecution will try to say it was caused by Witchcraft and try to pin this on him if at all possible.

Court comes to order. Charles Dawson tells the court that it was his intention to call Mordecai Grimes to the stand today but that that is now impossible because of Grime's sudden death. The court asks, "Then you rest your case, then?". Dawson replies, "No, I intend to call two entirely new witnesses. I intend to prove that Quentin Collins is responsible for Mordecai Grimes' death, that he did so through Witchcraft!" He calls to the stand Carrie Stokes. He tells her to tell the court what happened. She recounts the story of how she went to Mordecai Grimes' house and found him near death. Dawson asks, "And Miss Stokes, did Mr. Grimes say anything to you while he was still alive?" Carrie is reluctant to answer and doesn't say anything. Dawson presses her and she finally admits that Grimes had said, "Quentin Collins did this!"

Dawson introduces as evidence the coroner's report. It states that Mordecai Grimes had been in excellent health and that no cause of death could be found. Dawson concludes, "Thus, the death could only have been caused by sorcery!"

Dawson calls Jeremy Grimes to the stand. Dawson takes a letter out of his pocket and asks Jeremy if he recognizes it. Jeremy replies that he does, that it's the letter his father had written and had him deliver to Dawson on the night of his death. Dawson reads the letter to the court and tells it that the contents, in which Mordecai Grimes says he has found important evidence against Quentin, give Quentin's motive for murdering Mordecai Grimes. Dawson closes his case.

The court tells Barnabas it is now his turn to present his case in defense of Quentin Collins. Barnabas tells the court he has only one witness to call, the only witness who can establish Quentin Collins' innocence. He calls Quentin Collins to the stand. He asks Quentin, "Is it true you argued with Mordecai Grimes?" Quentin replies, "Yes, but so did everyone else. He was a cantankerous man." Barnabas asks if he ever practiced Witchcraft. Quentin replies that he didn't.

Dawson cross-examines Quentin. He states, "It has already been established that Desmond Collins brought the head of Judah Zachary back from his travels. Did you ask him to find it and bring it back for you?" Quentin replies that he did. Dawson asks why. Quentin replies, "Out of curiosity." Dawson pooh-poohs this and tells the court it is obvious he brought it back for its powers, that he's been using those powers. Quentin angrily denies this, glares at Dawson and exclaims, "I'll get you for this when I get out!" The court asks Barnabas if he has any more witnesses. Barnabas replies no and rests his case.

Dawson gives his closing statement. He recounts how Quentin was the last person to be seen with Lorna Bell, how he was found kneeling beside the body of Randall Drew, how the same occult symbol that appears on Quentin's ring was found on Lorna Bell's forehead and drawn on a piece of paper beside Randall Drew's body. He reminds the court that Quentin had been building what he claimed was a "Staircase through time". He recounts how Quentin had asked Desmond to bring him the head of Judah Zachary. He states that Quentin is possessed by the spirit of Judah Zachary, that he has just threatened vengeance against him just as Judah Zachary had vowed vengeance against all his enemies. He closes by saying, "Finally, I say it is obvious that Quentin Collins struck down Mordecai Grimes!"

Barnabas responds with his closing argument. He states that all the evidence against Quentin is circumstantial, that none of the witnesses called against him are witnesses in the true sense of the word in that none of them actually saw him practice witchcraft.

The court recesses to deliberate.

Carrie goes to Jeremy and tells him that the court has recessed to deliberate. Jeremy remarks, "Good. I hope he's found guilty and is punished." Carrie is shocked and asks how he could say this. Jeremy replies, "He killed my father." Carrie tells him that that's ridiculous. She starts to say, "You're starting to sound like your..." but stops. Jeremy exclaims, "Like what? Like my father? Maybe if I had listened to him earlier, he'd still be alive!" Carrie, upset, leaves.

The court reconvenes. Judge Vail announces, "The court has reached a decision. Will the witness please rise to hear the decision of the court."

Quentin stands up. Judge Vail announces, "You have been found guilty of the crime of practicing Witchcraft and are hereby sentenced to be taken to the town square on a date that will be decided by the court and beheaded." Barnabas is shocked and exclaims that he will appeal. Judge Vail replies that there are no appeals in this kind of case. He closes the case and adjourns the court.

Daphne visits Quentin in jail and tells him she can't believe what happened. Quentin sadly tells her he'll have to make preparations for his death and tells her to try to forget him. Barnabas comes in and tells them he's tried to talk to the judges, but he couldn't get them to listen to reason and give them an appeal. Quentin asks, "Did you try to tell them Gerard is behind all this? " Daphne, surprised, exclaims, "Gerard?" Quentin explains to her how they suspect Gerard is behind all this, that he has everything to gain from it.

At Collinwood, Gerard goes into the drawing room. Gabriel is in there. Gabriel remarks to Gerard, "Well, why aren't you smiling? Quentin's been found guilty. Isn't that what you wanted?" Gerard lies that it isn't. Edith runs in and exclaims, "Gerard! Have you heard about Quentin?". Gabriel rolls out. Edith and Gerard talk. They decide to meet at 11 O'clock "in the usual place". Edith remarks to Gerard that she thinks she has something coming to her. Gerard replies that she'll get all she deserves. Unbeknownst to them, Gabriel is eavesdropping through the door.

Later, Gabriel rolls into the drawing room and finds Edith in there alone. She is sitting by the fireplace staring at the mantel clock. Gabriel sarcastically remarks, "Waiting for your 11 O'clock meeting with Gerard?" She pretends not to know what he's talking about. He tells her to stop lying, saying he heard them talking. She replies, "All right! I AM going to meet Gerard. I like a man who always gets what he wants. What are you going to do about it, stop me?" Gabriel replies that he is. She laughs and tells him, "How are you going to stop me? You're nothing by a cripple! Why don't you go upstairs, drink your steaming hot cocoa and go to bed with your hot water bottle?" and leaves.

Barnabas and Daphne return to Collinwood. Daphne dejectedly remarks, "I can't believe what's happened. We can't just stand by and let Quentin be beheaded!" Barnabas replies that he doesn't intend to. Daphne asks, "What do you plan to do?" Barnabas answers, "I don't know, but we still have a week to think of what to do".

Having taken Daphne home, Barnabas leaves. Daphne walks up the stairs. On the landing she pauses and thinks to herself, "It's this house! Strange things happen to everyone who lives here! Why did I ever come here?" She hears some music start to play. She listens carefully and is surprised to find that it seems to be coming from the East Wing. She thinks to herself, "The East Wing? It can't be, the East Wing's been closed for years!" She goes to investigate.

It's 11:00. Edith goes into the drawing room and closes the doors. She hears a noise outside and asks, "Who's there?" She goes out to the foyer to look. There's no one there. The front doors blow open. She goes and closes them. The lights suddenly go out. Frightened, Edith runs upstairs. She goes and bangs on the door of the bedroom belonging to her and Gabriel. There is no answer. She opens it and goes in. She sees Gabriel's wheelchair sitting there, empty. She turns and is shocked to see Gabriel standing there. She gasps, "You can walk!". He replies, "I've been able to walk for years!" He goes on, "You like a man who gets what he wants? Well, I going to get what I want. I want you dead!" He grabs her and strangles her. After killing her, he remarks to the body, "You've always loved Collinwood. I know a place you can stay forever!"

Daphne follows the sound to a room in the East Wing. It is the parallel time room. The music stops. She opens the door and finds that the room is empty and looks like it hasn't been used for a long time. She thinks to herself, "I could've swore it was coming from here." She closes the doors and turns to leave, but hears a knocking sound coming from the room. She turns back and opens the doors again and is astounded to see that the room is now brightly lit and sumptuously furnished. She sees a blond woman in there. She exclaims, "Valerie!" and tries to walk in but finds her way blocked by an invisible barrier. The knocking sound continues and the woman goes and opens another door on the other side of the room. A man comes in. Though the woman looks just like Valerie, the man addresses her as Catharine. The man tells the woman he has something important to ask her. He asks her, "I, Morgan Collins ask you, Catharine Harridge to marry me." She pauses and tells him she'll need some time to think about it. After the man leaves, another woman walks in. Daphne is shocked. It is her. The other Daphne tells Catharine she heard what happened and says, "I'm your sister. You can tell me the real reason you refused him." Catherine replies, "I don't know what you're talking about". The other Daphne says, "There's only one man you ever loved". Catherine protests, "But he's been gone for five years!" The other Daphne counters, "But there are rumors that he's coming back." Catherine insists that that's all in the past, that it's all over between her and this unnamed man. Daphne is shocked to see the room suddenly become dark and empty again. She walks in and gasps, "This is impossible! I must be hallucinating!... No, it was too real..."

Gabriel carries the body of Edith the the East Wing, remarking, "You're going to love it there, such solitude as you've never known!". He hears a noise and quickly hides. He sees Daphne walking through the hallway on the way out of the East Wing.

Daphne goes to Gabriel and Edith's bedroom looking for them, but finds only Gabriel's wheelchair there, empty. Gabriel, coming from the East Wing, runs to his room to get back in his wheelchair before anyone finds out, but sees Daphne in there and runs off before she sees him.

Daphne comes downstairs. She goes and opens the drawing room doors gasps, "Oh my God...."

(incomplete...)

Gabriel, having kidnapped Daphne, takes her to an old room in the unused East Wing, ties her up, gags her and leaves her there, intending to hold her for ransom. Daphne learns that it was he, and not Quentin who killed Randall Drew, that he did so to get Quentin out of the way so he would inherit the Collins fortune, but that it didn't work out that way.

On his way out of the East Wing, Gabriel walks by the Parallel Time room. He hears what sounds like Flora's voice coming from behind the closed doors. He opens the door and sees what looks like Flora talking to a young blond woman. Surprised, he asks, "Flora! What are you doing there?", but she doesn't answer. In fact, she doesn't appear to even hear him. Gabriel tries to walk in, but finds his way barred by some sort of invisible barrier. Inside the room, the woman who looks like Flora, in a voice suggesting she is reprimanding a servant, asks the young woman, "What's the matter? Do you have a bad memory?" The blond woman apologizes to the woman who looks like Flora, "I'm sorry, Mrs. Collins, but I thought I was helping." "Flora" asks her what she was doing out of her room after 9:00 when she had been expressly told when she was hired that she was to remain in her room after 9:00. The blond woman explains, "I thought I heard a scream coming from the North Tower. I thought someone was in trouble and was going to help." "Flora" replies, "You must have been imagining it. There was no scream. Nothing unusual happened last night. I n any event, you were hired to be a private secretary, not to 'help'. In the future, regardless of what you think you hear, you are to remain in your room after 9:00 as instructed. Now, we have some correspondence to take care of." She goes and closes the door.

Gerard, looking for Daphne, walks down the stairs into the foyer. There, he runs into Gabriel, who's now back in he wheelchair. Gerard asks Gabriel if he knows where Daphne is. Gabriel lies, "No. Why are you looking for her?" Gerard replies that he thinks something has frightened her, that when he ran into her earlier, she acted hysterical and hit him in the head with a candlestick, knocking him out, and that she's now nowhere to be found. Gabriel asks him if he knows where Edith is. Gerard replies that he doesn't. Gabriel caustically remarks, "You should. I know what's been going on. You two have been secretly meeting." Gerard vehemently denies this and tells Gabriel he'd better stop making such scurrilous accusations or he'll cut his allowance. He then leaves, saying he's going to Rose Cottage to see if Daphne is there.

Samantha goes into the drawing room and finds Gabriel in there. She asks him where Gerard is . Gabriel replies that he's at Rose Cottage looking for Daphne. Samantha asks, "What's Daphne doing at Rose Cottage?" Gabriel replies, "He doesn't know whether she's there or not. She missing and he's looking for her everywhere." Gerard returns and tells them that Daphne is not at Rose Cottage. Samantha asks, "What's all this about Daphne?" Gabriel caustically remarks, "Maybe she found out that Gerard is having an affair with my wife" and rolls out. Gerard, furious, starts to go after Gabriel, but Samantha grabs him and in a jealous voice demands to know what Gabriel was talking about. Gerard tells him that it's all Gabriel's imagination that he's having an affair with Edith, that he would never have anything to do with such a woman. They hear a knock at the front door. They look into the foyer and see Gabriel answer the door. They are shocked to see who is is. It is Joanna. She tells Gabriel that she wants to see her sister. Gerard goes and tells her Daphne isn't here right now. Joanna tells him that it's very important, that that's why she came here. She asks if she can wait at Collinwood for Daphne. Samantha starts to say "No...", but Gerard interrupts her and tells Joanna she can go up to Daphne's room and wait for her there. Joanna remarks, "By the way, I've learned that when I 'left' the asylum, they sent my things here. I'd like to have to have them sent to me."

Having taken Joanna up to Daphne's room, Gerard comes back down to the drawing room. There, he and Samantha get into an argument about his letting Joanna stay to wait. She tells him she is afraid Joanna will try to do something to her. Gerard promises that he'll protect her. This calms her down. He tells her he's learned she's sent Tad away and asks why she did this. She tells she sent Tad to stay with friends in Boston because he was very upset about his father's conviction. He asks, "You're not suspicious that I would do something to him to prevent him from getting his inheritance at 21, do you?" She assures him that she does not.

Gabriel goes to the East Wing and to Daphne. He ungags her and tells her "I would never have believed it, but I saw that room you were talking about." She asks him what he saw there. He tells her that's not important. He demands to know what she knows about that room. She tells her she knows nothing aside from what she saw. He remarks, "Julia and Mr. Stokes seemed very interested in it when they heard about it. What did they say about it?" She replies that when she took them to it and showed it to them, after it changed, Stokes said some things that she didn't understand, but that Julia explained to her that it was a doorway to "Parallel Time", a world much like ours, but different. She adds that Julia had told her that if you were in that room when it changed, you would end up in parallel Time. She suggests to him that that might be an escape route for him. He replies, "That sounds very interesting. I might try it. But not until after I've gotten what I want from Gerard..."

Gabriel opens the door connecting the East Wing to the used part of the house and prepare to go out, but at the same time, Joanna comes out of Daphne's room, the door to which opens onto the same hallway*. Gabriel sees Joanna and quickly close door before she sees him, but unfortunately, in his haste he closes the door a little too quickly and she hears it. She goes to the door, opens it, walks into the East Wing and asks, "Is there anyone there?" Gabriel, meanwhile, is hiding around the corner holding a rope in his hands in a manner suggesting that he is prepared to strangle her...

* The door to the East Wing is at the end of the hallway, the door to Daphne's room, on the side.

Joanna, luckily for her, doesn't see anything and leaves.

The next day, Joanna goes downstairs. She runs into Gabriel in the foyer. He remarks, "No luck in finding your sister?" She replies that she didn't and can't wait any longer. She asks him why he isn't trying to help Quentin. He replies that he's mourning for his wife Edith. She asks him, "Is anyone using the East Wing? I thought I heard a noise in there last night". He replies, "No" and jokes that maybe she heard a ghost.

Joanna goes to the jail to visit Quentin. Quentin moans that he feels bad about he fact that Desmond tried to help him and as a result is now in jail too and will probably meet the same fate as him. Joanna replies, "NO! We can take him along too!" He asks her what she means. She tells him she has an escape route all prepared for him, that at 11:50 tonight a ship is leaving Collinsport tonight, that she knows the captain of the ship and has gotten him to agree to take him. She tells him he must escape and get to the docks tonight. At first, he refuses, saying that it would make it look like he's guilty, and he's worried about how that would affect Tad, but she finally convinces him, saying he can explain to Tad later. He tells her to go to Desmond and tell him about the escape, and to tell Leticia too.

Joanna goes and tells Leticia about the escape. Leticia, using her second sight, has forebodings about it, saying she gets the feeling that it won't work, but Joanna convinces her it must be her imagination. Leticia tells her they've got to tell Daphne about this too. Joanna tells her no one knows where Daphne is.

Leticia goes to Collinwood to look for Daphne. She finds Gabriel in the drawing room and asks him if he knows where Daphne is. He tells her she was acting very strangely before she disappeared, that she seemed to be afraid of Gerard, that she even hit him with a candlestick once . He implies that Gerard might have had something to do with her disappearance. The clock strikes 11 o'clock. Leticia gasps, "It's 11 o'clock!". Gabriel asks, "What's the matter?". Leticia lies, "Oh, nothing, it's just late, that's all" and leaves.

At 11:00, Quentin calls for the guard and, holding his stomach as if in great pain, gasps "Help... I'm sick... It's the food you've been giving me..." and collapses onto the bed. The guard unlocks the door, comes in and bends down to examining Quentin. Quentin suddenly sits up and hits the guard, knocking him out. He takes his keys and goes and lets Desmond out of his cell. But as they pass Quentin's cell on their way back out, the guard regains consciousness and tries to stop them. In the struggle, the guard shoots Desmond. Quentin knocks the guard out again and takes a wounded Desmond out.

Quentin takes Desmond to a storehouse on the docks and meets Joanna there. Leticia comes and, out of breath, says she couldn't find Daphne, that she thinks Gerard has her. She then sees Desmond lying wounded on a table, gasps "Oh, no!" and goes to him. Quentin tells Joanna he cannot go. Joanna asks, "Because of Desmond?". "No", he replies, "Because of Daphne. I can't go while she's missing." Leticia tell them, "I've got to go get Julia. She'll know what to do" and leaves. Quentin and Joanna leave to tell the captain of the ship they won't be going.

Leticia returns and tells Desmond that Julia is coming. She says to Desmond, "Oh, why did this have to happen? We could've have been in England together." Desmond asks, "We?" and suddenly realizes that she's in love with him. They kiss.

Gabriel, going to the East Wing to check on Daphne, is startled to hear what sounds like his own voice. He follows the sound and finds it's coming from the parallel time room. He looks in there and is shocked to see what looks like himself in there talking to a young blond woman. The "other Gabriel" asks the woman, whom he refers to as "Stella", if she knows where his mother keeps the key to the liquor cabinet. She replies that she doesn't know. He remarks, "You must've heard that your predecessor was fired for telling me..." and leaves. Stella goes and starts to close the doors through which Gabriel is looking but suddenly stops and gasps, "What are you doing hiding behind the door?! What are you doing with that knife?" Whoever is behind the door closes it. Stella screams.

Gabriel exclaims, "What's going on in there?" and opens the door, but the room is dark and unfurnished again...

Quentin and Joanna return to the storehouse on the docks. Leticia is there. She tells them Julia is in the next room treating Desmond. She leaves. Quentin tells Joanna he's got to go to Collinwood and find Daphne. Joanna convinces him he can't, that that's the first place the police would expect him to go, that they've probably go the grounds surrounded, waiting for him to show up. She volunteers to go instead.

At Collinwood, Gabriel goes to check out Daphne. He stares at her and remarks on how beautiful she is. Nervously, she tries to use flattery. She tells him she's never realized what an attractive man he was while he was in a wheelchair. H e tries to kiss her, but she turns her head in disgust, saying, "Ughhhhh!!!" He puts the gag back on her and angrily says, "You were lying to me!" He leaves, saying, "I'll be back!". Daphne notices that he has left the candle burning. She slides the chair over to the table and start to burn the ropes tying her left hand.

Joanna goes to Collinwood and asks Gabriel about Daphne again, saying Quentin had told her to come to him. Gabriel tells her that he suspects that Gerard kidnapped her.

Daphne successfully burns through the rope binding her left hand. She uses her free hand to untie herself. She goes and tries the door, but finds it locked. She tries the window and finds that it won't open either. She desperately looks around and finds what looks like a bell pull to summon servants. She pulls it, but it just breaks and falls down. She sees a lever that was hidden by the bell pull . She pulls it and a secret panel opens. She goes through it and closes it.

Joanna asks Gabriel if she thinks Gerard might harm Daphne. Gabriel replies that he doesn't think so, that he thinks Gerard did it just to torment Quentin, to make he doesn't get to see Daphne before he is executed. Joanna asks, "Do you think he might be holding her in the East Wing? I'm sure I heard a noise there last night." Gabriel replies, "No", then suddenly remarks, "You know, maybe I was wrong about Gerard taking her . Maybe she left of her own will." He suggests to Joanna that she go to Daphne's room and look for a note or something that might indicate that this is the case.

Daphne wanders through the secret passages. She sees a picture on the wall and notices that she's seen it before . She gasps, "Oh, no. I'm going around in circles! I'm lost!"

While Joanna is looking through Daphne's room, Gabriel rushes to move Daphne, but finds her gone. He notices that the bell pull is down and the lever in plain sight. He pulls the lever . The secret panel opens and he goes inside.

Joanna, having searched Daphne's room and found nothing, decides to check out her hunch about the East Wing and goes there to investigate. She goes into the room where Daphne was being held and finds the ropes which bound her to the chair and a plate containing the remains of some food. She thinks to herself, "She was here! She was being held in this room!"

Daphne, still wandering through the secret passages, hears a sound and quickly hides behind a column. She sees Gabriel walk by...

At the storehouse, Quentin remarks, "Why isn't Joanna back yet? Maybe Gerard's got her! I've got to go and help her!", but Leticia convinces him to wait a little longer, saying it's too dangerous for him to go with the police out looking for him.

Joanna wanders through the East Wing, looking for Daphne. She hears voices. She is startled to find the voices coming from a brightly lit, sumptuously furnished room. She is even more startled to find what look like Leticia and Gabriel in there. She exclaims, "Gabriel! You're out of your wheelchair!" but is surprised to find that he doesn't seem to hear her. She tries to walk into the room, but finds that she cannot. The woman asks the man where Stella is. The man, addressing the woman as "Melanie", replies that he doesn't' know, that she probably decided she didn't like it here and left without telling anyone. Joanna wonders why "Gabriel" called Leticia "Melanie".

Daphne, still wandering through the secret passages looking for a way out, sees a flash of lightning (It's storming outside.) She wonders where it could be coming from and looks around. T here are more lightning flashes and sees that they are coming from a grilled window in an iron door. Realizing that the door must open to the outside, she quickly goes to it and tries it. She opens it and goes outside, but only walks a short distance before she is grabbed by Gabriel....

A stormy night on the great estate of Collinwood in 1840, for Daphne has managed to escape from the prison Gabriel has made for her in the East Wing. But her escape is in a series of corridors to which she can find no end. And she knows that Gabriel is after her.

Gabriel starts to strangle. The ghost of his father Daniel Collins suddenly appears. Gabriel lets go of Daphne. She drops to the ground unconscious. The ghost announces, "I have come for you, Gabriel, just as I have promised! You will kill no more!" Gabriel, terrified, runs off.

Gabriel runs into Collinwood and into the drawing room. He is shocked to find Daniel already. He runs out of the drawing room into the foyer, but finds Daniel standing on the stairs.

Outside, Daphne regains consciousness.

Gabriel runs into the parallel time room, seeing it as a way of escaping. He begs, "Change! Please change now!" But the room does not change. Instead, Daniel appears and repeats his vow to kill him. Gabriel flees.

Daphne runs into Collinwood through the front door. Joanna happens to be coming down the stairs at the same time and exclaims, "Daphne!". Daphne runs to her and cries, "It was Gabriel! He can walk! We've got to get out of here, he'll kill us all!"

Gabriel runs through the house, vainly trying to escape from his father's ghost, but everywhere he goes, Daniel! Finally, he makes the mistake of going out onto the parapet. Daniel's ghost appears and causes him to fall over.

Daphne, having calmed down somewhat, tells Joanna she's got to go and visit Quentin in jail. Joanna tells her Quentin is now safe, that he's escaped and hiding out at Indian Cove. Daphne asks, "If he's escaped from prison, why is he still here in Collinsport? Why hasn't he left town?" Joanna answers that Quentin refused to leave while she, Daphne, was missing. Daphne feels bad about this. Julia walks in through the front door and sees Joanna and Daphne. Daphne tells her that it was Gabriel, and again warns that they must leave before he kills them all. Julia tells her they needn't worry about that, that she's just found Gabriel outside, that he had apparently fallen from the parapet and is dead.

Quentin and Desmond are in the storehouse at Indian Cove. Quentin looks out the window and sees two men approaching. He warns Desmond that two men are coming and that they might have to fight. Desmond replies that he won't be much use in a fight his condition. Quentin continues to look out the window and tells Desmond that the two men have just left, that they must have just been fishermen. Joanna comes and tells them that Daphne's now safe at Collinwood. She tells them about Gabriel being behind it all. She tells him he's in the clear now that it's known that Gabriel killed Randall Drew, but Quentin points out that he isn't, that he wasn't convicted of the murder of Randall Drew, but for Witchcraft. He tells her he's got to visit Daphne at Collinwood. She tries to argue him out of it, saying he has to worry about not only the police, but also Gerard and Samantha, both of whom would probably turn him in. But he insists. Joanna tells him she'll tell Joanna he'll be coming. They decide on a time and place.

Joanna returns to Collinwood and tells Daphne about Quentin coming tonight. She then tells Daphne she has come to accept the fact that it is she who Quentin loves, that she cannot relive the past. Julia comes in, sees Daphne up, and tells her she must go lie down and rest. Daphne goes upstairs to her room. Joanna mentions to Julia that this is a strange house. She tells her about the strange room she ran across in the East Wing, about how she saw people inside talking and tried to go in but couldn't. Julia explains parallel time to her and tells her that the room is a portal to it. Julia asks exactly what she saw. Joanna tells her.

Julia goes to the parallel time room. Standing outside, she sees a man who looks just like Desmond standing inside. A woman who looks just like her walks into the room and demands to know what he is doing in there. The man tells her, "My name is Kendrick Young and I'm here to look for my sister Stella." He tells her that he had asked the servants down- stairs about her but they told him they didn't know where she was and suggested he come up here, that there might be a Collins up here who could tell him. He asks if she is a Collins. She replies that she is. He tells her that his sister had written him a letter inviting him to visit her at Collinsport, that after he accepted her invitation, she wrote him back telling him she was excited about his visit and had already booked a room for him at the Inn in anticipation, that she would meet him at the Inn when he came. He tells her that when he came, he waited all day at the Inn for his sister but she never came, that he became worried that something had happened to her because she knew the day he was coming. "Julia" replies that she doesn't know where Stella is, that she's a flighty girl who left a few days ago, saying she didn't like it here and wanted to find another job. Kendrick tells her he doesn't believe that, that that's not the type of thing his sister would do. "Julia" replies that she did tells him to leave. He does, vowing to find out the truth. "Julia" then closes the door through which Julia is looking. Julia opens the doors, but finds the room dark and empty.

Later, Quentin comes onto the Collins property and meets Joanna in the woods outside the house. Joanna tells him that Daphne is inside waiting for him in the East Wing. She tells him to be careful, that Gerard and Samantha have just returned home, that he should go in through the back entrance to avoid them.

Quentin goes into Collinwood and into the East Wing and meets Daphne there. They embrace. Quentin looks around, then, telling Daphne they would be safer in a room than out here in the hallway, opens a door and pulls her in with him. Daphne looks around. Suddenly recognizing that they're in the parallel time room, she exclaims, "Quentin! We've got to get out of here! It's not safe in here!" Quentin asks what she means, but before she can answer, the room changes to parallel time and suddenly becomes well lit and furnished. Quentin, surprised, asks, "What happened?" Daphne gasps, "Oh, no! We're trapped in another time!"

The great house of Collinwood in the year 1840, a time of crisis for the Collins family. After being condemned to die for the practice of witchcraft, Quentin and Desmond have escaped from jail and are now hiding out in an abandoned fishing shack. On this night Quentin goes to Collinwood to meet his beloved Daphne in the east wing of the great house, unaware that he is soon to witness the world of parallel time.

Quentin asks Daphne what she means. Daphne tells him what Julia and Stokes had told her about parallel time. Quentin exclaims, "Weitzman's theory!" and tells her a professor named Weitzman had theorized about parallel bands of time. T hey hear someone coming and hide. Morgan Collins and Catharine Harridge (Lara Parker) come in. Morgan tells Catharine he wants a decision from her before she leaves Collinwood tonight. He leaves. There's a knock at the door. Catharine answers. It's Samantha. Catharine asks where she's been. Samantha explains that she's been taking care of Justin. Catharine asks how Justin is. Samantha tells her he is still paralyzed, just as he has been since the accident, unable even to talk. She remarks that everyone is waiting for the day when he'll be able to talk and tell them what happened to him. Samantha tells Catharine that she's heard that Morgan has asked her to marry him. She warns her, "If you say yes, don't let him bring you to live in this house!". Catharine asks why, saying she's always dreamed of living at Collinwood. Samantha replies, "You only see Collinwood as it appears, not as it really is. You'd be miserable here!" Morgan returns and Samantha leaves. He asks Catherine what she and Samantha were talking about. Catharine lies that they were just making conversation. Morgan warns, "Don't listen to anything she might tell you about me. She hates me." He complains that he has a headache and, remarking, "I have some headache pills in here" starts to walk right to where Quentin and Daphne are hiding. But Catharine suddenly says, "Wait!have something that will cure your headache even better than pills. The answer is "yes." I will marry you!" He embraces her joyfully. The 'other' Daphne comes into the room. They tell her about their engagement and she congratulates them, hugging Catharine. Suddenly, the room becomes dark and empty again. Daphne and Quentin wonder what happened. Quentin theorizes that the they snapped back into their time because the other Daphne had come into the room and both Daphne's could not exist together in the same time and place.* They leave the room. Quentin tells Daphne that Barnabas has exhausted all his appeals. He tells her there's no more hope and he'll have to flee Collinsport. He asks her if she'll join him. She replies, "Yes". Joanna comes in and tells Quentin he'd better leave now.

Later, down in the drawing room, Daphne explains to Gerard how Gabriel had told her while he was holding her how it was he who had tried to kill him, Gerard. Samantha comes in. Gerard and Daphne leave. Joanna comes in and tells Samantha, "There's some unfinished business we've got to attend to". She tells her she knows it was she who was sending the letters to Quentin and Daphne, that she must have at first stolen the letters from her belongings sent from the asylum and sent them, then learned how to forge her handwriting and started writing them herself. Samantha denies this, but when Joanna continues to press her, she finally blurts out, "All right! It was me!" She exclaims, "You can stop pretending now. I know you remember our last meeting on the hill, I know you remember how I pushed you off the cliff! I don't know how you managed to survive, but you won't survive this time!" She pulls a gun from out of a drawer and shoots her. Gerard, hearing the gunshot, comes running in and exclaims, "What happened?!" Joanna, standing there unhurt, calmly replies, "Mrs. Collins tried to kill me, but she missed." Samantha hysterically shouts, "No I didn't, I couldn't have. She can't be killed because she's already dead!" and runs out of the room. Gerard runs after her.

Samantha and Gerard go the the cemetery and dig up Joanna's coffin. It is empty. Samantha tells Gerard that this proves Joanna is really dead. Gerard is doubtful, saying there must be some other explanation. He points out to Samantha that Joanna couldn't have come back from the dead, that she is young and beautiful, that if she had come back from the dead, that she would be a "decomposed mess".

Later, at Collinwood, Samantha finds a letter to her on the table by the wall in the foyer. She opens it and reads it. It says, "I looked for you in your room but couldn't find you. I have discovered some important information that will solve the mystery of Joanna. Please come meet me at Widow's hill." She quickly leaves to go to Widow's hill. In her haste, she drops the letter in the foyer near the stairs.

Samantha goes to Widow's hill and waits. She hears a sound and calls out, "Gerard?". But it is not Gerard. It is Joanna. Samantha gasps, "YOU!" Joanna replies, "Yes. You're not the only one who can forge letters. You brought it all out into the open earlier. You admitted you killed me. Now I shall tell you the truth. You did not fail when you tried to kill me, just as I shall not fail tonight." Samantha gasps, "But how can you look as you do if you are dead?!" Joanna answers, "I appear to you as I choose to appear to you. Now I will appear to you as I really look, the way you will look!" She turns into a "decomposed mess". Samantha screams.

* Hmmm. Julia managed not only to exist in the same room as her double, she managed to kill her...

The great house of Collinwood in the year 1840, on this dark and fateful night Quentin Collins remains a fugitive from justice. Fearing he will never be able to' clear his good name, he has made plans to leave Collinsport forever. Meanwhile, on the cold and baron cliff known as Widow's Hill, a strange confrontation is about to occur. One which will alter the future of Quentin Collins and his beloved Daphne.

Terrified, Samantha turns and tries to run from the rotted form of Joanna, but accidentally trips and falls off the cliff. Joanna turns back into her young, beautiful form. She looks over the edge of the cliff with a look of great satisfaction on her face and leaves.

At Collinwood, Gerard finds the letter Samantha had dropped. He reads it. Joanna returns. Gerard asks her where she's been. She tells him she just went out for a breath of air. He asks her if she's seen Samantha. She replies that she hasn't. She asks, "Is anything wrong?" Gerard replies that there is and shows her the letter. She remarks, "That's from you." Gerard tells her that it isn't, that someone forged it. Joanna, pretending to know nothing about it, replies, "My, how curious..."

At the storehouse at Indian cove, Julia examines Desmond and tells Quentin that Desmond will be able to travel tomorrow morning.

The next morning, Daphne walks into the drawing room and is surprised to find Joanna in there. She asks what she is doing there so early. Joanna replies that she stayed so late last night, she decided to wait until morning. Daphne hears the sound of the door opening and looks into the foyer to see who it is. She gasps, "Gerard! What happened?" Gerard, carrying Samantha in his arms, tells them, "I found her at the bottom of Widow's Hill. She's dead...."

Daphne and Joanna are alone in the drawing room. Daphne remarks, "Edith, Gabriel, and now Samantha! Three deaths in 24 hours! What's going on?" Gerard returns and tells them he's sent a servant to tell the police. Daphne asks, "How did you find her?" Gerard shows her the letter he found and tells her he didn't write it, that someone must have forged it to lure Samantha to Widow's Hill. Daphne asks if he has any idea who it might be. Gerard replies that he doesn't. He remarks, "Whoever it is, I know one thing, it'll look bad for Quentin. She testified against him. That gives him a motive."

Joanna goes to the storehouse and tells Quentin that Samantha is dead. She tells him that Gerard had said that he would probably be blamed for it. Quentin sarcastically remarks, "I'm sure he'll do everything he can to make sure I am." He tells her he's going to have to change his plans, that he'll have to go to Boston to get Tad now that Samantha's dead. He tells her that they're going to leave at dawn and to go tell Daphne to come to the storehouse at 3:00 in the morning.

Julia returns to Collinwood and runs into Gerard in the foyer. Gerard remarks, "Been out treating a patient?" Julia replies, "Yes I have." Gerard asks, "The patient's name wouldn't happen to be Desmond Collins, would it?" Julia replies that it isn't. Gerard tells her he doesn't believe her, that Desmond had been wounded during the escape and that she's the logical person they would've gone to for help. Julia replies, "Yes. That's why they would've found someone else. I'm too obvious".

Daphne is about to go into her room, but looks at the door going to the East Wing and, overcome by curiosity, goes to look into the parallel time room. Inside, she sees a woman who looks like Julia looking out the window through a pair of opera glasses. Outside, Stella's brother is asking someone who looks like Samantha what happened to his sister. "Samantha" says that she doesn't know, that Stella had just left without telling anyone where she was going and without leaving a forwarding address. "Samantha" comes back upstairs. "Julia" asks her why she was talking to Stella's brother. "Samantha" tells her that he had sent her a note asking her to come outside and tell him about Stella. "Julia" asks her what she told him. She replies she told him exactly what she, "Julia", had told her happened to Stella. "Julia" tells her to tell her exactly what happened outside and goes and closes the doors. Daphne tries to open them but finds that they are locked.

Joanna comes and tells Daphne the Quentin wants her to come to the storehouse at 3:00.

It is 8:45. Julia leaves Collinwood. Unbeknownst to her, Gerard is in drawing room spying on her through a crack in the door...

Julia arrives at the storehouse. She tells Quentin she wants to examine Desmond one last time to make sure he's all right. She tells him Gerard is starting to suspect that she's been treating Desmond. Quentin, worried, asks, "There's no chance he could've followed you, is there?" Julia replies that she doesn't think so, but in case he did, she came by way of a particularly circuitous route guaranteed to lose him. There's a knock at the door. Quentin quickly hides. Julia answers the door. It is Daphne. Quentin comes back out. Julia goes into the other room to examine Desmond. Quentin asks Daphne why she came here so early, saying it isn't 3:00 yet. She tells him she couldn't wait, that she realized she and Gerard were the only ones in the house, couldn't stand it and left. Quentin asks her if she'll marry her when they get to Boston. She tells him she will. They kiss. Unknown to them, Gerard is outside eavesdropping on them through the window...

The great estate of Collinwood in 1840, and this night is filled with both hope and anxiety. Gerard Stiles and the police still search for the escaped Quentin and the wounded Desmond. But Samantha's body has been found on the rocks below Widow's Hill, and her death officially termed a suicide - and only Joanna Mills knows the truth. So Joanna has freed Quentin from the bondage of his unhappy marriage and given him, even in his peril a chance for a new life.

Daphne goes to Rose Cottage and tells Leticia that they're leaving at 3:00. Leticia, who's going too because she's in love with Desmond, asks Daphne, "Do you think I should tell Flora I'm going?" Flora unexpectedly comes into the room and asks "Going where?" When they don't answer, she tells Leticia she's known for some time that she's been going to visit Desmond. She tells her that she can tell from what she heard of their conversation that something has changed, that they must be planning to flee. She asks them to tell her where Desmond is so she can go say goodbye to her son. Leticia tells her, "If we tell you, you must be careful not to tell Gerard!" She tells them she won't. They tell her where Desmond is. Daphne tells Leticia she'll have to go back to Collinwood, that they'll need some money and Quentin has given her the combination to his safe.

Gerard returns to Collinwood and finds Charles Dawson waiting for him in the foyer. Dawson, in a panicky voice, asks, "Why don't you use your powers to do something about Quentin? He escaped three days ago. He promised vengeance against me!" Gerard replies that he'll do something tomorrow morning. Dawson asks, "Why wait?" Gerard replies, "Quentin hasn't suffered enough yet. I have a marvelous plan, but it involves someone else." Dawson asks, "Who?". The front door opens and Daphne walks in. Gerard smiles and remarks, "My dear, why we were just talking about you!" Daphne excuses herself and goes upstairs. Gerard tells Dawson that he'll need him to prepare some papers for him. He starts to tell him his plan...

Leticia goes to Collinwood to see how Daphne is doing. She finds her there alone. Daphne tells her that Gerard and Charles Dawson had been here, but that they had just left. Leticia tells her to hurry up and get the money from Quentin's safe. Daphne leaves to do so.

Gerard returns and is surprised to find Leticia in the drawing room. He pours a couple of glasses of champagne and tells Leticia they have something to toast. Leticia asks what. Gerard replies, "A wedding!"

Daphne, in the East Wing, hears music again and opens the doors to the parallel time room. Inside, she sees a woman who looks like "Flora" talking to someone who looks just like Leticia whom she addresses as "Melanie". "Flora" asks Melanie, "Have you been to the West Wing? There's something in your expression that makes me think you have." Melanie, shocked, replies, "Of course not! I never go there!" Flora tells her, "It's good that you don't. We found you father there last night. We found him in the corridor outside that room." Melanie, shocked, exclaims, "No! He mustn't die! We can't let him! We can't have another lottery!" "Flora" tells her not to talk about the lottery, that she doesn't want to have to hear about it...

Having seen Desmond, Flora, at the storehouse, tells Quentin she thinks they should wait awhile, that she doesn't think Desmond is well enough to travel. Quentin disagrees, saying it's too dangerous to stay here much longer, that Julia had pronounced Desmond fit to travel. They argue about this.

At Collinwood, Gerard casts a spell to cause Daphne to fall asleep and have a dream, saying, "This will be the final dream, Daphne, the one that will convince you that we must marry!" Daphne falls asleep and has a dream in which she is in the foyer, luggage at her feet, all packed up and ready to go somewhere. Gerard comes in and asks her where she's going. She replies, "I don't know. I don't remember..." He tells her to stay with him forever. She replies that she will. They kiss.

Daphne awakens and goes to Gerard. He asks her to marry him. She tells him she will. He tells her he'll get a minister to marry them tonight.

Leticia goes to Daphne and asks her, "We've got to hurry up and go!" Daphne replies that she's not going, that she's changed her mind, that she's going to stay and marry Gerard. Leticia, shocked, runs out the door.

Leticia hurries to the storehouse and tells Quentin that Daphne has decided to stay and marry Gerard. Telling her that Gerard must have cast a spell on Daphne to cause her to do this, he rushes out of the storehouse over Leticia's objections that it's too dangerous for him to go to Collinwood.

At Collinwood, a minister is marrying Daphne and Gerard. Just as he finishes the ceremony and says, "I now pronounce you husband and wife," Quentin bursts into the drawing room and exclaims, "NO!"

The minister, shocked, excuses himself and leaves. Quentin tells Gerard, "I know you put a spell on Daphne to make her marry you. I'm going to take her with me, and if you try to stop me, I'll kill you!" Quentin is startled to hear a voice from behind him say, "Quentin Collins, your killing days are over!" He turns and sees Lamar Trask standing there holding a pistol. Quentin remarks, "So this was a trap!" Gerard replies that it was. Daphne awakens from the spell. Gerard tells Trask to take Quentin away and takes a dazed Daphne upstairs.

Upstairs, Daphne, now fully "awake" has an argument with Gerard, telling him, "I'll never stop loving Quentin!" She tells him she knows he's really Judah Zachary and not Gerard, that she'll never love him. He tells her he'll give her time to think about it and leaves, locking the door behind him.

Barnabas, having been told about the parallel time room from Julia, goes to there to investigate. He opens the doors and finds that a woman who looks like Angelique is talking to a woman who looks like Daphne. However, the woman who looks like Daphne addresses the woman who looks like Angelique as "Catharine". "Daphne" tells Catharine that a strange thing happened to her while she was in town today, that old Ezra Robinson came up to her and said something strange to her, that Ezra, who had heard that she, Catharine, was going to marry Morgan Collins, had told her to warn her not to move into Collinwood after she married, that it would be tragic if she did, that there's a haunted room at Collinwood, that the entire family lives in fear, that there's a legend about Collinwood. Catharine interrupts, saying "Ezra Robinson is a muddle-headed old fool!" "Daphne" continues, saying that Ezra had said that there's a legend that once every generation, the Collins' have a lottery, that the person who "wins" the lottery has to spend a night in the haunted room, that everyone who's ever done so has ended up either dead or crazy, that the last person who did so was Justin Collins. Catharine pooh-poohs the idea that Justin is paralyzed because he spent a night in some haunted room, saying Justin became paralyzed as a result of an accident. "Daphne" points out that no one will ever say what the accident was or when it happened. Quentin comes into the room and Catharine leaves. "Daphne" asks how much of their conversation he heard. He answers, "Enough! Do know what I was away seven years for? Manslaughter! I had a fight with a man who was talking the way you were and accidentally killed him. I don't ever want you to say those things again!"

Angelique goes to Collinwood. She runs into Gerard in the foyer. Angelique tells Gerard she's looking for Barnabas and asks if he knows where he is. Gerard replies that he doesn't know. Angelique asks if it's OK if she waits in the drawing room. Gerard replies that it is. He says, "Oh, by the way, I have some new for you. Quentin was re-captured today and taken back to jail. This happened just after Daphne and I were married." Barnabas, who has just come out of the bedroom hall onto the landing and is at the top of the stairs, hears this and is shocked.

Barnabas quickly goes to the jail to see Quentin. Barnabas tells him they've got to do something, that there's still time. Quentin, despondent, tells him not to bother, that there's nothing they can do. Lamar Trask walks in, smiling broadly. He tells them that Judge Vail has just decided to move the execution up to tomorrow morning...

Barnabas returns to Collinwood and tells Angelique that the execution has been moved ahead to tomorrow morning. He begs her to use her powers to do something to save him. She refuses, saying she's not powerful enough and fears the greater power of Judah Zachary. Barnabas, upset that she won't even try, tells her that though they may have become good friends, they will never be anything more, that he can never love her, that she is still a witch and will always be a witch, that she cares nothing about the suffering of others. He tells her, "I'm afraid you'll never change" and leaves.

Gerard goes into the room where he's locked Daphne. She tells him she hasn't changed her mind and never will. Gerard tells her he came to tell her Quentin will be executed tomorrow.

Downstairs, Angelique looks at the portrait of Barnabas and says, "Yes, I will help Quentin, but what I do I will be doing it for your love. If I cannot prove myself to you this way, then there is no way..." She goes into the drawing room and starts to cast a spell by the fire. She takes out a doll and sticks a pin in it.

Upstairs, Gerard suddenly grabs his chest in pain. He quickly runs out of the room.

In the drawing room, Angelique takes another pin and prepares to administer the coup de grace. Suddenly, the doors burst open. Angelique turns around and sees that it is Gerard. Angelique, stands up, dropping the doll, a look of terror on her face. Gerard says, "So, it is you, Miranda! You have used your powers for the last time!"

The tragedy at Collinwood is now nearly complete: Daphne is married to Gerard, Quentin and Desmond are in prison again and their beheading is to be this night. A frantic Barnabas has begged Angelique to intercede on Quentin's behalf but she has refused - and her refusal has made Barnabas more aware why he can never love her - she lacks the human trait of kindness. But Angelique alone is determined to prove Barnabas wrong, and so she begins using her powers to defeat the man she fears above all, Judah Zachary, whose soul possesses Gerard Stiles.

Gerard goes to Angelique and forces her to look into his eyes. He tells her he will take away the powers which he gave her long ago. He says a few words saying her powers will disappear then tells her that it is done, he has taken her powers away. Feeling no different, she tells him she doesn't believe he could've taken her powers away so easily. He tells her he will prove it to her. He gives her back her voodoo doll and his handkerchief and tells her to try something. She takes the hand- kerchief, wraps it around the throat of the doll and tightens it, but nothing happens to Gerard. He drags her away.

Barnabas goes to look into the parallel time room again. There, he sees Melanie taking care of an old man in a wheelchair whom she addresses as "Father". Catharine comes running in and excitedly tells Miranda that her wedding invitations have come. Miranda asks, "Are you going to send one to Bramwell?" Catharine replies, "I don't know where he is. He's been gone for five years". Miranda reminds her that there are rumors that he is coming back. Catharine says that she doesn't know if they're true. Miranda asks, "If the rumors are true, will you send him one?" Catharine replies that she'd have to talk to Morgan about that, that if Morgan says OK, she'll send him one. They show one of the invitations to the old man. Upon seeing it, a look of shock comes across his face. He starts to have an attack and grabs his chest in pain. Melanie tells Catharine to go get his pills. Catharine leaves to do so. The old man exclaims, "NO! She must not marry him! We can't have any strangers in here! The room! No one must know! Close the door! We must talk privately!" Melanie closes the door and Barnabas sees no more.

Gerard takes Angelique to Charles Dawson's house and tells him to hold her prisoner there. Dawson asks he doesn't kill her now. Gerard replies, "I want to let her live until after Quentin's execution, I want her to know that I have gotten my final triumph." He adds ominously, "After Quentin has been beheaded, I will come back and give her my full attention! I've been waiting for this for a long time..."

Leticia goes to visit Desmond in jail for the last time. Desmond gives her a letter, saying it changes his will to give everything to her, that he wants her to have the kind of life she would've had if they had married. Leticia tells him not to lose hope, that Flora has written to the governor complaining that they can't execute him without a trial. Desmond replies that there is no hope, that the judges have dug up an old law from 1690 stating that a followers of a convicted warlock can be executed without benefit of trial. Leticia asks him to marry her now. Desmond refuses, saying it would be too dangerous, that it might cause her trouble, that it might cause people to think she's part of the coven. Leticia tells him that if they can't call someone to marry them, they can at least say the vows to each other. They do, then kiss.

Barnabas visits Quentin in prison. He promises to find and free Daphne and "take care" of Gerard. Quentin tells him he feels worse about Desmond, that he just tried to help and now finds himself facing execution too. He asks Barnabas to take care of Tad, to let him know his father is innocent. Barnabas promises to. Quentin asks how much time is left. Barnabas replies, "About 45 minutes". Quentin remarks, "It's strange, but I'm not afraid at all. Tell Tad his father wasn't afraid..."

Angelique tries to seduce Dawson. It looks like she's succeeding, but just as he is about to kiss her, he pulls back and says, "No. I'm more afraid of Judah Zachary that I am attracted to you." She tries a more direct approach. When his back is turned, she grabs a heavy candlestick and hits him over the head with it. She bends down to examine him and finds that he's dead.

Gerard is in the foyer at Collinwood, looking at the grandfather clock. He smiles and says to himself, "Only 20 minutes left till Quentin is beheaded!" Leticia comes in through the front doors. She exclaims, "You're Judah Zachary! It's your doing that Quentin and Desmond are going to die. Well, so are you!" She pulls out a knife and tries to stab him, but he grabs her by the wrist and easily disarms her. He leaves.

Quentin and Desmond have now both been put in the same cell to await execution. Quentin tells Desmond he feels bad for putting him into this mess. Desmond replies that it wasn't his fault and jokes that it is he who should apologize, that he was the best man at his wedding and should've done something to prevent him from marrying Samantha. Some guards come and take them away.

Quentin and Desmond are taken to the place of execution. Quentin sees Gerard there. Gerard smiles and says, "I wouldn't have missed this for the world, Quentin!" Quentin, infuriated, tries to get to him but his held back by the guards. He is taken to the execution block and put into position. The masked executioner, a very muscular man, lifts the axe and prepares to strike...

The great house of Collinwood in the year 1840. On this night, in the courtyard behind the Collinsport jail, Gerard Stiles has come to witness his success of his plan to bring about the downfall of the Collins family, for Quentin and Desmond Collins are to be publicly beheaded.

Angelique suddenly comes running in and shouts, "Stop! You have the wrong man! It's Gerard Stiles who's possessed by Judah Zachary, not Quentin Collins!" Judge Vail stops the execution, saying he wants to hear what she has to say first. He asks her who she is. She tells him she's Valerie Collins. Barnabas, who's in the audience, steps forward and tells the judge she's his wife. Judge Vail asks Angelique what proof she has. She takes the cloth covering a box she has brought with her and announces, "This! The head of Judah Zachary! I found it in Charles Dawson's house!" Lamar Trask, who's also in the audience, objects, saying it proves nothing, that she could've found it anywhere and said she found it in Dawson's house. The judge asks Angelique why she would've been in Dawson's house. She explains that she was being held prisoner there, that she hit Dawson on the head with a heavy candlestick with the intention of just knocking him out, but found that she had killed him, that after doing so, she searched his house and found the head. Judge Vail asks why she was being held prisoner. Angelique looks over at Barnabas then turns back and decides to tell the whole truth. She tells the Judge that Dawson was holding her prisoner on orders of Judah Zachary/Gerard because she was one of Zachary's original followers, that she betrayed him. The judge finds it hard to believe that she could've been alive in 1692. She is about to explain when suddenly Desmond lunges at a guard, takes the gun from his holster and shoots Gerard in the chest. Gerard falls to the ground. Suddenly, the head of Judah Zachary starts to glow. Barnabas sees this and exclaims "Look!", pointing at the head. Everyone does and sees the head slowly become a skull. Barnabas exclaims that this proves that it was Gerard was who was possessed by the spirit of Judah Zachary, that when he died, so too did the head. Quentin goes to Gerard and finds that he is still alive. Gerard tells him, "Judah Zachary is dead and I am free! Forgive me, Quentin, for what I did. I wasn't myself..." Quentin tells him he understands. Gerard expires. Judge Vail proclaims Quentin and Desmond innocent and tells them they are free. Trask points at Angelique and demands "Wait! I demand that she, a self-proclaimed witch, be held!" Judge Vail replies that he will do so, saying, "She has some questions to answer..." Barnabas asks the judge to be allowed to speak to his wife for 5 minutes. The judge agrees to lets him do so. Barnabas goes to Angelique and thanks her for what she has just done. She asks him, "You know why I did this, don't you?" He replies that he does, but, with all that has happened, doesn't know what he feels yet. He vows to do whatever he can to help her. The guards take her away.

Quentin, Desmond and Barnabas return to Collinwood. Desmond exclaims, "I can't believe it! It's all over!" Quentin tells him to go tell Leticia the good news while he and Barnabas look for Daphne. Desmond leaves. Quentin tells Barnabas, "You go search the East Wing. I'll search the rest of the house." They separate to do so.

Daphne hears a noise at the door of the room where she is being held. Someone is unlocking it. Thinking it is Gerard, she grabs a candlestick, goes to the side of the door, and prepares to hit him when he comes in. The door opens, but it is Quentin who comes in. She drops the candlestick and they embrace.

Barnabas, searching the East Wing, walks by the parallel time room and hears some sounds inside. He opens the door. Catharine is in there. She is pacing the room, apparently thinking about something. A man comes into the room. Barnabas is shocked. The man looks just like him. Catharine sees the man and exclaims, "Bramwell!" The man says, "I have come back, just as I promised 5 years ago!". They kiss, but Catharine suddenly pulls away and says, "No, this is insane!" Bramwell asks her what's wrong. She tells him she is engaged to marry Morgan Collins. Bramwell is shocked. He tells her she can't do this, that he thought she'd always love him. She tells him she loves Morgan and plans to marry him. They argue about this. Bramwell accuses Catherine of wanting a rich Collins and not a poor one. He complains that the Collins family hates him, just as they hated his father Barnabas. Catharine remarks, "Justin likes you". Barnabas replies, "Yes, he's an exception, but he had his accident before he could give me a fair share of the business, and now his sons are doing everything they can to make sure I remain a poor relation." He vows to bring the Collins family down.

Barnabas comes downstairs. Quentin sees the strange look on his face and asks him what's wrong. He replies that he just saw something in the parallel time room, something that made him realize how much he loves someone. He leaves.

Barnabas goes to Judge Vail to talk about Angelique, but the judge tells him he's too late, that she left 20 minutes ago. Barnabas asks him what he means. The judge replies that the tribunal questioned her and decided to free her.

At Collinwood, Quentin finds a letter addressed to him from Samantha which she never got the chance to mail. He opens it and reads it. In it, she tells him that she wanted to let him know that she wants him to know the truth about Tad, that it was only out of spite that she told him he wasn't really his son, that he is.

Barnabas returns to Collinwood and finds Quentin and Daphne in the foyer dressed in traveling clothes. He asks them where they're going. Quentin replies, "We're going to Boston to get Tad, then get married", then asks, "Looking for Valerie? She's in there." He motions toward the drawing room with his head. Daphne and Quentin leave. Barnabas goes into the drawing room. Lamar Trask quietly comes out of the room under the stairs...

Barnabas goes into the drawing room. He tells Angelique, "Now I realize how I feel about you..." But just as he is about to tell her, Trask comes into the room, pulls out a gun, shouts, "The judges wouldn't hold you, but I'll take care of you!" He exclaims "Die, witch!" and shoots Angelique.

A climactic night at Collinwood in 1840. For Valerie has saved Quentin and Desmond from beheading, and Gerard has been killed. So Quentin and Daphne are free to leave Collinsport and start a new life. And Barnabas, moved by Valerie's willingness to incriminate herself in order to save his two friends, goes to the prison to tell her of his new feelings for her, but discovers she has been released, and so he hurries back to Collinwood for the most eventful meeting in his life.

Barnabas rushes Trask, disarms him and chokes him. Trask falls to the ground. He calls out, "Julia!" and goes to Angelique. He holds her and tells her "You must not die! I love you!" but then sees she is already dead. He dejectedly says, "She's dead. I never had a chance to tell her I loved her. She never knew..." He hears a moaning sound, looks over and notices that Trask is not dead, but regaining consciousness. Trask gets up and runs. Barnabas chases him up the stairs, screaming, "You're going to pay for this with your life!" Trask runs into the East Wing. He finds a knife. When Barnabas catches up to him, Trask stabs him in the chest, but Barnabas manages to wrestle the knife from him and stabs him in the stomach. With the knife in his stomach, Trask runs. He ends up in the parallel time room. Suddenly, the room changes into parallel time. Barnabas, on the outside, sees Trask in parallel time. Suddenly, the room changes back to normal. Barnabas exclaims, "He's gone! He's trapped in that other time!"

Barnabas goes back down to the drawing room and talks lovingly to the dead Angelique, telling her he never realized how much he loved her until now. Julia comes in and sees them. Julia notices Barnabas is wounded and asks what happened. Barnabas tells her. Julia tells him she'll go get her medical bag and leaves.

At Rose Cottage, Desmond paces around nervously and asks Flora, "It's been over two hours! Where could Leticia be?" Suddenly, he exclaims, "My God! She was pretty depressed! What if she tried to do something to herself! I've got to go out and look for her!". He prepares to leave, but Leticia comes in through the door. They are overjoyed to see each other and embrace. Flora remarks to Leticia, "I'm going to show you what a good mother-in-law I'm going to be. I know the first rule of being a good mother-in-law. I'm going to leave you two alone" and leaves. Leticia explains to Desmond that she was depressed and spent the night walking on the beach crying, that she eventually went into town, heard about him and Quentin there and rushed back. Desmond tells her he's going to take her to New York to get married.

At Collinwood, Julia and Stokes are in the drawing room. Barnabas returns. He tells them that he has spoken to the police about Angelique and that they accepted his story. He tells them she'll be buried in the family mausoleum. Stokes tells him, "We must go back to our own time now. You've succeeded in changing the past. I wonder if it's had any effect. It's 1971 in our time now. I wonder if it's any different." Desmond, who was in the foyer, apparently having come to Collinwood to tell them about him and Leticia going to New York to get married, comes into the drawing room and, having overhead them talking, exclaims, "What are you talking about??? 1971??? That's 140 years in the future!" Julia explains to him that they're from the future, that they used Quentin's staircase to travel back in time. Desmond, incredulous, exclaims, "Quentin's staircase is a joke!", but they manage to convince him they're telling the truth. He tells them, "If Valerie's funeral is the only thing keeping you, Leticia and I will stay a few days to take care of the arrangements. You three can go now". They tell him they will.

They go the the staircase through time. Barnabas tells Desmond the rest of the story, about how there's a room to parallel time in the East Wing, how Trask escaped through it. He tells him that Trask might find his way back out some time. Desmond promises to be on the lookout for him and to "take care" of him if he does. They tell him to destroy the staircase and after they leave.

Barnabas, Julia and Stokes go up the staircase through time and go through the door. They find themselves in the hallway outside the playroom. They find that they have apparently succeeded. Collinwood is all right, that it is not in shambles. They look through the house but are surprised to find no one around.

It is now 8:10. Barnabas, Julia and Stokes have now been back in 1971 for over two hours. They are worried, wondering where everyone is. Julia remarks, "They've got to be all right. There's fresh food in the refrigerator." Finally, Elizabeth comes walking in the room. She exclaims, good naturedly, "Your all impossible! Where have you been? You're all late for the opening of the Historical Center. I only came back here because Roger forgot his speech!" Barnabas asks, "David and Hallie are already there?" She replies that they are. Barnabas asks, "And Carolyn and Quentin?" Elizabeth replies that they are there too. She remarks, "You know, I was looking through the West Wing and found an old journal written by an ancestor of mine I never knew about before, a Flora Collins. I'm going to give it to the Historical Center." As they all leave, Barnabas whispers to Julia that everyone's all right, that it appears that they've succeeded, that the ghosts of Gerard and Daphne never appeared in 1970.

Back in 1840, Desmond finishes destroying the staircase with an ax. Leticia is in the drawing room, wondering where Desmond can be. Finally, Desmond comes out from the door under the stairs and goes into the drawing room. Leticia exclaims, "There you are! Where have you been? I was worried something happened!" Desmond replies, "Something has. There's a strange room in the East Wing. Something may be happening there." They go to the East Wing. On the way, Desmond tells Leticia about the parallel time room. She is astounded. He tells her, "Wait till I tell you the rest of the story..." At the parallel time room, they see Trask inside, lying on the floor, the handle of a knife sticking out of his stomach. He gasps, "Help me! Someone please help me!" He collapses and stops moving. "Flora" comes in and finds him. "Julia" comes in moments after. Flora gasps, "Not again! First Stella, now this man! Someone's certain to find out!" Julia tells her nobody will find out, all they have to do is secretly bury the body. Saying, "We'll have to do this quietly, she closes the doors so no one will hear.

Having buried Trask, "Flora" and "Julia" return. Melanie comes running into the room and exclaims, "Father's had a second attack! He's dying!" "Julia" mutters, "Then the Lottery will happen again before the week is over..."

A night of change on the great Estate of Collinwood. Barnabas, followed by Julia and Stokes, has returned to the world of 1971 to find that their trip has changed history, for Collinwood is a serene place, untroubled, un-haunted by the ghosts of Gerard and Daphne. But Barnabas is filled with despair, for back in 1840 he left the body of his love, Angelique - murdered by Lamar Trask. Attempting to avenge her death, Barnabas wounded Trask seriously, but Trask escaped him by going into the strange world of Parallel Time. There he dies, and there two women find his body, and their fear is so great they bury it secretly - only to return to the upstairs parlor to face a more terrifying threat.

Flora rushes out to see Justin. Melanie admonishes Julia for talking about the Lottery. She moans, "He can't die. He's the only one who ever treated me like a real Collins, not like I was adopted..." Morgan comes in and tells Melanie Justin wants her. Melanie leaves. Morgan tells Julia he's thinking of moving his wedding date up so that he will be married to her before his father dies. Julia tells him, "NO! You can't do that! If she becomes part of the family before he dies, she'll have to participate in the Lottery!" Morgan replies that he's thinking of changing the Lottery so that only the men have to participate. Julia warns him against tampering with tradition.

Catharine is living in a cottage. There's a knock at the door. Bramwell comes in and insists on talking to her. He tries to convince her not to marry Morgan, without success. She admits that part of the reason she wants to marry him is the lifestyle he can give her. Bramwell tells her if it's money she's interested in, he has made a great deal of money while away and already owns one ship, that as soon as this ship finishes its current voyage, he'll have enough money to buy another one. She still refuses. Morgan Collins comes in and exclaims, "Bramwell!" He orders him never to come here again. Bramwell replies, "As long as Catherine is living here, she has the right to say who will or will not come here. Let her decide." Catharine tells him never to come again. Bramwell angrily says, "You'll be sorry you said that. You'll change your mind!" and storms out. Morgan asks Catharine, "You used to love him. Do you still?" She replies, "No. You're the only one I love." They kiss. Morgan tells her that they must marry tonight. She asks, "Why? The invitations have already been printed announcing that it's next month." He replies that it's because his father is dying. Puzzled, Catharine asks, "I would think that the last thing you would want to do is get married while your father is dying." She asks him to explain why he does. He doesn't say anything. She asks if it has anything to do with the strange rumors about the family she has heard in town. He orders her never to talk about those rumors again. She tells him she won't marry him tonight unless he tells her why.

Flora and Julia discuss the man who was killed. One of them remarks, "You've got to remember Justin as he was before he went into that room. It's not his fault he killed that man." They look through the wallet of the man they buried. Flora notes that the man's name is Trask and says, "He must be one of the Trasks' who own the bakery in town", but then notices that the first name is Lamar, and none of them is named Lamar. Looking further, they find a business card that announces that Lamar Trask owns a funeral parlor on Front Street. They are puzzled because there is no funeral parlor on Front Street. They decide to burn the wallet. They discuss Justin. Julia remarks, "He won't die tonight. No one's seen the woman in white yet. The woman in white always appears just before a person who's been that room dies.

Morgan Collins goes to the old house and asks Bramwell to promise never to see Catharine again. Bramwell angrily refuses.

Catharine goes to Collinwood to talk to Melanie. She tells her that Morgan wanted to get married tonight but refused to tell her why. Seeing the expression on Melanie's face when she tells her this, she asks, "You know, don't. Won't you tell me?" Melanie pauses and replies, "Yes. I will." But just as she is about to tell her, someone comes into the room and tells Melanie that they want her to go and read to Justin, that when she did so earlier, it had a good effect on him.

Morgan, returning to Collinwood, stares at it from the woods and thinks about what a terrible place it is, about the terrible things that have happened there. Suddenly, he sees something, and a look of horror comes across his face. He gasps, "The Woman in White! Oh, no, Father, it'll be tonight!"

Collinwood in Parallel Time, and the fate of all who live at the Great House depend on Justin Collins's struggle to live, for when he dies one member of the family, chosen by lottery, must spend the night in a mysterious room. A night that will bring death or madness to the unlucky man. But if he survives the curse will be ended. So the family waits, hoping Justin's time has not come. But their only assurance is that no one has seen the specter of the Woman in White - a figure who always appears before the death and the lottery to come.

Melanie, in Justin's room looking after him, looks out the window and sees the woman in white. Justin, seeing her shocked expression, says, "What is it? The woman in white?" Melanie lies that it isn't. He asks her why she looks so frightened then. She lies that the lightning outside frightened her. Not believing her, Justin goes to the window and sees the woman in white too...

Downstairs in the drawing room, Gabriel, who's not supposed to drink, asks Morgan for the key to the liquor cabinet. In view of the circumstances, Morgan gives it to him. Gabriel takes out a new, unopened bottle of rum, opens it and pours himself a glass. After drinking it, he tells Morgan he doesn't plan to participate in the lottery, that he plans to flee. Morgan grabs him and tells him he won't let him. Gabriel asks, "And how are you going to stop me?" Morgan replies that it would do no good to flee, "that he would know where you were." and leaves.

Bramwell comes and finds Gabriel drinking alone in the drawing room. Bramwell asks to see Justin, but Gabriel refuses to let him, saying they want to let Justin die in peace. He remarks to Bramwell that now he's back, he'll have to participate in the lottery. Bramwell replies that he won't, that the Collins family had never done anything for him and he won't do anything for them. He tells him that the only thing he'll do is to grieve for Justin. He walks out of the drawing room and goes into the door under the stairs.

Morgan and Melanie are upstairs watching over Justin, who's sleeping. Suddenly, he awakens and exclaims, "The room! She's here in the room, the woman in white!" Melanie looks around and tells him, "No she isn't, we're the only ones in here". He continues to insist that she's in there and starts to have another attack, but it soon stops. He orders Morgan to leave and let him speak to Melanie alone.

Bramwell comes out of the door under the stairs. He has apparently gone to see Quentin, who accompanies him out. Quentin thanks him for his sympathy about Justin. They both go into the drawing room to wait with Gabriel for the inevitable.

Justin tells Melanie, "The letter! Brutus Collins' letter in the safe! The lottery must happen again!" He rushes out of the room, shouting "I must go to that room!"

Justin runs into an unused part of the house, dark and covered with cobwebs. Just as he gets to the door of what must be "the room", Melanie catches up with him and stops him from going in. Justin screams at the door, "No more! You can't take any more of us! Am I not enough?". He has another attack, grasps his chest and falls to the ground.

In the drawing room, Gabriel looks at the empty rum bottle he's holding and says, "The bottle is empty! Who'd believe that not long ago, it was full?" He is quite drunk. Morgan comes in and announces that Justin is dead. Gabriel leaves to see their mother. Bramwell leaves too, saying he wants to talk to Melanie.

Bramwell tells Melanie that he thinks it would be best if she left Collinwood. She refuses.

It is midnight. Quentin and Gabriel are in the drawing room with their father's coffin. Morgan comes in holding a piece of paper. He announces that it is Brutus Collins' letter from 1680. He reads it to them, "To My Children: Our family is under a terrible curse. I am now spending the night in this room, waiting for our enemy. If I should survive the night alive and undamaged, then the curse is over. If I do not, then when I die, one of you will have to do what I am do now. You must decide fairly amongst yourselves who it shall be. I would suggest a lottery. This must be done until someone survives a night in the room. Oh, what a legacy it is I leave you!" Signed Brutus Collins, the 10th of March, 1680. Quentin leaves. Morgan takes a sheet of paper out of a desk drawer, cuts it into three equal strips from it, dips a quill pen into a bottle of ink and writes an "X" on on of them.
