Maggie is pacing around in the drawing room looking very anxious
and worried. Elizabeth comes in and asks, “Are you ready to meet the
children?” Maggie replies, “Yes. I think it might be better if
Quentin was with me”, but Elizabeth disagrees, “I think it would be
better if you did this alone. It’s about time Daniel realized that
you’re now Mrs. Collins”.
Upstairs in Daniel’s room, Amy is saying to Daniel, “I’m so glad
you’ve decided to meet her”. Daniel replies, “I’m going to go much
more than just meet her. I’m going to drive her from this house!”,
snapping a comb in anger.
Amy asks, “Why?” Daniel replies, “I want her out of this house!”
Amy protests, “But your father married her. She must be nice.”
Daniel replies, “He didn’t marry her because of that. He married
her because he was lonely. She’ll be sorry she ever came into this
Quentin is in the drawing room with Maggie discussing her fears
about meeting the children. Quentin assures her everthing will turn
out OK. Chris comes into the room. Quentin introduces him to Maggie,
“Cousin Chris, also lawyer, and manager of the estate for me.” Chris
tells Quentin, “I need to talk to you in private. It’s about Bruno”.
Quentin asks, “What about him?” Chris replies, “He’s come back. They
go out into the foyer and close the doors. Quentin asks, “How long has
he been back?” Chris replies, “Elizabeth discovered him in Angelique’s
room a few days ago.” Quentin asks, “Who let him in?” Chris replies,
“He let himself in.” Quentin asks, “Where is he now?” Chris replies,
“In the cottage. I passed by it a few minutes ago and heard him
inside playing the piano”. Quentin asks, “What did you do?” Chris
replies, “Nothing. I wanted to talk to you first. He said Angelique
gave him permission to stay there”. Quentin growls, “Angelique is dead.
He can’t count on her benevolence anymore. I want him off my property!
Call me if he gives you any trouble!” and storms off angrily again. Chris
goes into the drawing room and apoligizes, “Sorry if I got your husband
angry. Have you seen the estate?” Maggie replies that she hasn’t.
Chris promises to give her a tour sometime, saying, “I want you to
be happy here”. Maggie replies, “I want to make Mr. Collins happy,
as happy as he was with the first Mrs. Collins”. Chris gets a sad
look on his face and says, “Angelique became a legend in her own
time. It will be difficult to live up to a legend”.
Elizabeth goes into Daniel’s room and tells the children, “Your
father told me to bring you down”.
Quentin has calmed down and returned. He apoligizes to Maggie
for getting angry about Bruno and storming off. Maggie asks, “Who
is Bruno? Why do you dislike him so much?” Quentin replies, “Someone
I hope you’ll never meet. The less said about him, the better”.
Elizabeth brings the children in. Quentin introduces them to Maggie,
“My son Daniel, and cousin Amy, Chris’ sister”. Amy cherrily says,
“Pleased to meet you! But I don’t know what to call you.” Maggie tells
her, “How about Maggie?” Quentin says, “I have work to do. I’ll leave
you to get acquainted” and leaves.
In the foyer, Elizabeth tells Quentin, “You don’t know how devoted
Daniel was to Angelique….” Quentin becomes angry again, says,
“I’ll be in my study!” and storms off again.
In the drawing room, Maggie and Amy are talking amiably. Amy asks,
“Have you been in Collinsport before?” Maggie replies, “I used to live
here when I was a child, but we moved away when I was eight”. Daniel,
however, works on a jigsaw puzzle, studiously ignoring Maggie. Trying
to get him to talk, she goes to him and says, “I’ll be needing your help”.
He asks, “How?” Maggie replies, “Collinwood is such a huge estate, I’ll
need someone to show me around”, but Daniel coldly replies, “Chris will
show you the estate. That’s his job. Everyone in Collinwood has a job
to do. That’s the way my mother wanted it. She said Collinwood was like
a big clock you could run your life by”. The clock strikes noon. Daniel
asks, “Have you met the gardener yet?” Maggie replies that she hasn’t.
Daniel tells her, “My mother used to meet the gardener everday at noon
to tell him what to do. She planned all the landscaping. That’s why
Collinwood is so beautiful”. Maggie is very intimidated.
When they have finished, Daniel goes out into the foyer. Elizabeth
coldly remarks, “You must be proud of that performance of yours in there”.
Daniel replies, “I knew you’d be out here listening, I just knew it”,
not seeming to care what she thinks. After the children leave, Elizabeth
tries to reassure Maggie, “It’s going to take time”, but Maggie moans,
“I was a disaster!” Elizabeth explains, “The boy is living in the past.
He’s never accepted his mother’s death. You’re going to have to be the
one to get him to accept it.”. Maggie remarks, “His mother must have been
some woman”. Elizabeth replies, “Yes she was”.
Daniel takes Amy to Angelique’s room. Amy asks, “Why are we here?”
Daniel replies, “This is the only place in the house we can talk. I’ve
thought of a way to get rid of Maggie!” Amy tells him, “I’m not going
to help you! It isn’t right!” Daniel grabs her arm and puts it in a
hammerlock. She reluctantly agrees to help. He starts to tell her
his plan, “There’s a secret panel…”
Quentin has returned and is with Maggie, asking her, “How can you
say you failed after only one meeting?” Maggie replies, “He hates me!
He’ll always hate me!” Quentin assures her, “He just doesn’t know you.
You have to show him you’re his friend. To know you is to love you!
He’ll come around!”.
Daniel is with Amy in a secret passage, going over his plan with her,
“All you have to do is stand here. My mother’s room is just on the
other side. You can hear everything we say. Now repeat to me, when
do you start humming hum?” Amy replies, “When you say ‘Mother, please
sing to me again'”.
The clock in the foyer reads 6:25. Maggie is in the drawing room,
reading a newspaper. David comes in looking for Quentin. Maggie tells
him Quentin’s not there and suggests he try the study. The clock in
the foyer strikes 6:30. Daniel says, “Silly me. There’s only one place
he could be. He’s there every day at this time”. Maggie asks, “Where?”
“Standing in front of my mother’s portrait, remembering her. Sometimes
he talks to her”. Maggie asks, “Why are you trying to upset me?”
Daniel replies, “I’m not trying to upset you. I’m just telling you
where he is”. Maggie tells him, “He couldn’t be there. He’s not
the kind of man who would cling to the past”. Daniel replies, “Shows
how much you know him. He loved her very much. He’ll never get over
her death. If you don’t believe me, go up and see for yourself!”
Maggie goes up to Angelique’s room. She looks around, but finds
that Quentin isn’t there. Daniel comes into the room. Maggie remarks,
“Your father’s not here”. Daniel replies, “Maybe he left before you
came”. He looks at the portrait and says, “Isn’t she beautiful? Soon,
she’ll be back.” Maggie remarks, “That’s ridiculous”. Daniel shouts,
“She told me she would be back!” Maggie says, “That’s nonsense”, but
Daniel continues, “But she said she would! She told me after she was
gone! Please, mother, sing to me again!” The sound of someone humming
Brahm’s “Lullaby” is heard. Maggie screams, “It’s not possible!
It’s a trick!”, but Daniel insists, “It’s not a trick! She’s still
here! She never left!” Maggie shouts, “Stop it!” and runs off.
Amy comes into the room. Daniel congratulates her, “You were wonderful!
You did exactly what I wanted”, then with a puzzled look on his face,
“How did you get here so fast from the secret passage?” Amy replies,
“I wasn’t in the secret passage. That’s what I came here to tell you.
Chris stopped me downstairs. I just got here. It wasn’t me”. Daniel
looks at the portrait and asks, “If it wasn’t you, then who was it?”

Daniel stares at Angelique’s portrait. Amy asks, “Daniel, what’s
wrong?” Daniel replies, “It was HER! She’s back! She sang to me!”
Amy tells him, “That’s not possible. It must have been your imagination”,
but Daniel insists, “It wasn’t my imagination! I heard it and Maggie
heard it too! She IS back!”. Amy points out, “People can’t come back
from the dead”. Daniel insists, “Maybe she did! Maybe I can make her
sing again! Sing, mother!” Amy becomes frightened, screams, “I don’t
want to hear it! I don’t want to!” and runs off”. But this time there
is no humming. Daniel looks at the portrait and says, “I heard you hum,
and that’s all that matters”.
In the drawing room, Maggie asks Julia, “Do you know where Mr.
Collins is?” Julia replies, “In his study”. Maggie asks, “Could you
go and get him for me? I have something important to talk to him
about”, but Julia refuses, saying, “He doesn’t like to be bothered
when he’s in his study”. Just at that moment, Quentin comes walking
into the room. He tells Julia, “You may leave, Miss Hoffman”. Julia
leaves. He asks Maggie, “What’s wrong?” Maggie asks, “Is it true that
you go to Anglique’s room every day to meditate and remember her?”
Quentin asks, “Where did you get that idea?” Maggie replies, “Daniel
told me. So I went there…” Quentin interrupts, “You went to Angelique’s
room?!” Maggie continues, “I had to! Ever since I came into this house,
I’ve been compared to Anglique, how beautiful she was, how efficient
she was…” Quentin assure her, “No matter what anyone says, you’ve
replaced her. I don’t know what Daniel told you, but I haven’t been
in Angelique’s room since the day she died”. Maggie remarks, “Then
it must have been a childish prank”. Quentin asks, “What was?”
Maggie recounts what happened. Quentin becomes angry and says, “It
won’t happen again! I’m going to talk to him!” and storms off.
Maggie is coming out into the foyer. At the same time, Julia
comes out from the door under the stairs. Julia asks, “Is something
wrong, Mrs. Collins?” Maggie replies, “Everthing I do turns out to
be wrong! So far, I’ve been a total disaster!” Julia replies, “The
first Mrs. Collins couldn’t do anything wrong as far as Daniel was
concerned. It was the little things she did”. Maggie asks, “What
little things?” Julia replies, “For example, Daniel broke on of
his favorite records the other day. The first Mrs. Collin would
have noticed and replaced it”. Maggie asks, “Do you know where I
could find a copy of this record?’ Julia replis, “Yes I do…”
Quentin is in Daniel’s room, chatising him for playing a prank
on Maggie, “I don’t want you playing anymore jokes…” Daniel
insists, “I wasn’t playing a joke! I heard my mother! She’s
somewhere in the house trying to communicate with us!” Quentin
becomes angry and says, “No more such talk! Angelique is dead.
From this moment on, I forbid you from going into that room!”
Quentin is in the drawing room reading a newspaper. He hears
the front doors open. He gets up to see who it is. It’s Maggie,
her arms laden with shopping bags and packages. Quentin quips,
“It looks like you’ve been to every store in town”. Maggie replies,
“I had to go everywhere I remembered as a child. Would you believe
I even ran into two people who recognized me?” Quentin remarks,
“I find your innocence so charming. EVERYONE recognized you. You’re
the new mistress of Collinwood. They just didn’t say anything”. He
asks, “What did you buy?” Maggie replies, “Lot’s of thing,s and a
pecialAsurprise for Daniel”. Quentin asks, “What is it?”, but Maggie
refuses to tell him, saying, “You’ll find out when he does!”. Quentin
replies, “OK, I like surprises. I’m glad to see you’re taking the
initiative with Daniel”.
Julia is talking with Daniel in his room, “As difficult as it
is for all of us, things will change, Daniel”. Daniel replies,
“They won’t as long as SHE’s here”. Julia remarks, “Your father
told me about that prank you played on her”. Daniel insists, “It
wasn’t a prank! It really happened!” Julia asks, “Tell me about it”,
but Daniel refuses, “I don’t want to talk about it”. Julia begs,
“You know how devoted I was to her. Please tell me what happened!”
Daniel tells her. Julia says, “Then there’s still hope! She hasn’t
abandoned us, and now I know she never will!” Quentin peeks in through
the door and tells David, “Your stepmother has a surprise for you!”
and leaves. Daniel tells Julia, “I’m not going”, but Julia says,
“I suggest you do. Take my advice and go. My intuition tells me
that this is a surprise you will like!”
In the drawing room, Maggie is taking an LP out of its sleeve
and putting it onto the turntable of an old-fashioned console
stereo. Amy comes into the room, saying, “I was told you were in
here. I’ve been looking for you”. Maggie replies, “I just got
back. Why have you been looking for me?” Amy holds out a bouquet
of flowers, saying, “To give you these. I picked them from the
greenhouse especially for you”. Maggie says, “Thank you. I appreciate
it”. Amy tells her, “You’ll have to be patient with Daniel.” Maggie
agrees, “I’ll be very patient with him”. Amy remarks, “I knew you’d
be like this even before you came. Maggie, we’re going to be good
friends!” Daniel comes into the room, saying, “My father said
you had a surprise for me”. Maggie replies, “Yes! I hope you like
it! Both of you sit down! I’d like you to listen to something!”
Maggie has both Daniel and Amy sit on the couch for her surprise. She
goes and turns the record player on. Some piano music plays. Amy
listens with a look of shock on her face. Daniel, on the other hand,
starts to grin evilly. Maggie asks, “What’s wrong, Amy?” Suddenly,
Quentin comes bursting into the room, stomps over to the stereo and turns
if off, then shouts, “Who’s played that record?!” Maggie replies,
“I did”. Quentin shouts, “What a stupid thing to do!!!!” Maggie runs
from the room in tears. Daniel smiles and says, “She’ll never be my
mother, never!”
Maggie is alone in the foyer, agonizing over what happened. Julia
comes into the foyer and asks, “Is something wrong, Mrs. Collins?”
Maggie shouts, “You know something’s wrong! You knew how he would
respond to that record, yet you deliberately kept it from me!” Julia
lies, “I didn’t”. Maggie asks, “Then why don’t you tell me?!” Quentin,
who’s come into the foyer, says, “I’d like and answer to
that question too. Sorry I exploded, Maggie.” Maggie, still distraught,
exclaims, “Everthing I do turns out all wrong!” and runs off.
Quentin remarks to Julia, “She thought you were to blame. Obviously,
there must be a reason”. Julia admits, “It was I who suggested she
buy that record for Daniel.” Quentin says, “You know how I feel about
that record!” Julia explains, “I thought it would help Mrs. Collins’
relationship with Daniel. I didn’t think of how it would affect you”.
Quentin tells her, “My feelings don’t matter right now. You’ve hurt
my wife. You should appoligize to her. See that this never happens
again!” Julia replies, “I will”.
Maggie is in Angelique’s room talking to the portrait, “If only
you were flesh and blood! Then I could fight you. But how can I
fight a presence?” Julia comes into the room and says, “I apologize.
I’m very sorry about what happened. I thought only of how Daniel
would like the record. I didn’t stop to think how it would affect
Mr.Collins”. Maggie accepts her apology. Julia looks up at the
portrait and says, “I forgot how much Mr. Collins her. Everyone loved
her. And how can you blame them? Look at her. She was the heart
and soul and lifeblood of Collinwood, a legend in her own life.” Maggie
gripes, “Only you could turn an apology into a testimonial!”, then adds,
“Excuse me, I’m going to apologize to my husband. I’ve made my mistake.
But I learn, Miss Hoffman, I learn!” and leaves. Julia, now alone in
the room, says to the portrait, “This house needs you more than anyone!
If you can come back, please find a way to do it! We’re waiting for you!”
Maggie is going down the foyer stairs thinking to herself, “Quentin
told me it would be a challenge. Now I must find a way to rise to
the challenge, no matter how many of them are against me! I am the
mistress of Collinwood, and no one can change that! No one!” She is
surprised to hear an unfamiliar female voice in the drawing room saying,
“I’m sorry I didn’t notify you in advance. It must have been quite a
shock!” Quentin replies, “Well, I must admit I didn’t know what to think
at first. Would you like a sherry?” The female voice responds, “I’d love
one”. Maggie looks into the room and gasps, “My God, she’s back! She’s
come back!” Inside sipping a sherry is Angelique…”

Maggie, terrified, has run back to her room and is sitting there
in a state of shock. Quentin comes knocking at the door, but Maggie
just sits there not answering. Finally, Quentin opens the door and
goes in. He tells her, “Let me explain…”, but she screams, “What’s
there to explain? I saw her there!” The woman appears at the doorway,
saying, “I thought it would be best to get it over with quickly”.
Maggie shouts, “Don’t let her near me! Don’t!” Quentin tells the
woman to go back to the drawing room. He then explains to Maggie,
“Maggie, that woman’s name is Alexis, she’s Angelique’s twin sister.
She’s just arrived from Florence. She’s just heard of Angelique’s
death. Now let’s go downstairs”, but Maggie is still hysterical and
screams, “I don’t want to see her!” Quentin gives up and leaves,
saying, “We have a guest downstairs. One of us has to be with her”.
Chris is in what looks to be a laboratory in a cellar somewhere.
With him is the man who looks like Jeb Hawkes. The man, whom Chris
addresses as “Cyrus”, is saying, “I saw Angelique! I was driving
through town and saw her walking in the street!”. Chris replie,
“Cyrus, you’re a scientist”. Cyrus asks, “What does that have to
do with it?” Chris replies, “Scientists deal with facts. Angelique
is dead. It’s a fact that people don’t return from the dead.”
Cyrus counters, “At one time people believed the earth was flat
and that the sun revolved around the earth. To them, these were
facts, and they were wrong. I saw Angelique! I saw her walking
in the street!” Chris replies, “There must be some explanation”.
He suggests, “You’ve been working too hard. You’ve locked yourself
in this basement for over a year! It can’t be good for your health!”
Cyrus remarks, “You wouldn’t understand what I’m doing here”. Chris
asks, “What ARE you doing here? I’d like to know”, but Cyrus refuses
to tell him, saying, “You might misunderstand”. Chris insists, saying,
“I’m a friend”. Cyrus tells him, “Man is chemical in composition.
If a compound can be made to change that composition, the man will be
changed also. I am distilling such a compound. Furthermore, Man is
not one person, but two. One is good and one is evil. These
two persons are always with us, but if they can be seperated, good
can operate without evil interferring.” Chris says, “I’m worried
about you. You seem to have become obsessed with an impractical
idea”. Cyrus replies, “It’s not impractical. If you had let me
have that chemist’s address, I might have succeeded by now”..
Chris remarks, “Then I’m glad I didn’t give Angelique’s address
book to you”. Cyrus tells him, “Angelique believed in me. She
was the one who got me started”. Chris remarks, “Seperating good
from evil. I have no doubt which one appealed to her”.
In the drawing room of Collinwood, Alexis is telling Quentin, I must
go. I have such a devastating effect on Maggie”, but Quentin insists
that she stay, saying he makes the decisions at Colliwood, not Maggie.
He calls for Julia. Julia comes into the room and starts to say,
“You called for me, Mr. Collins…”, but suddenly gasps, “Ah!!! It’s
you!” when she sees Alexis.
After everything is cleared up, Quentin apologizes to Julia, “Hoffman,
don’t be upset. If there was any way I could have told you in advance
Alexis was here I would have.” Hoffman, in turn, says, “Sorry I lost
my composure. I should have known very well who she was. Angelique has
spoken of her twin sister many times.” Quentin tells Alexis, “Miss
Hoffman will take care of you. If you need anything, ask her”. Julia
tells Alexis, “The first Mrs. Collins spoke of you quite often”. Alexis
remarks, “The news of her death came as a great shock to me”. Julia asks,
“Didn’t you get my letter?” Alexis replies, “No”. Julia continues,
“But I wrote to you in Tangiers at the last address I got from your
sister”. Alexis replies, “Well, I never got the letter”. Quentin
asks, “Then why did you come here?” Alexis replies, “I just had a
feeling I was needed here”. Quentin tells Julia, “I want you to make
her stay here a comfortable one”. Julia says, “I’d like to give her
the first Mrs. Collins’ room, if you don’t object”. Quentin replies,
“No, I don’t object”. Alexis says, “I’d like that very much”.
After they leave, Quentin thinks to himself, “I wish she didn’t look
so much like her. I’m getting as bad as Maggie. Of course she looks
like her! She’s her sister, from far away. But how far away? I
Back at the cellar lab, Chris is telling Cyrus, “I’m worried about
you. I spoke to Dr. Reese the other night and he said you gave a talk
about black magic at the scientific conference!” Cyrus replies, “To
quote Shakespeare, “There is more on heaven and earth than dreamt of
in your philosophies, Horatio’ – and in yours and Dr. Reese’s”. Chris
warns him, “This can only lead to trouble”. Cyrus counters, “This can
only lead to glory. Now if you will only give me the name of that
chemist, I can be finished very quickly”. Chris replies, “No. If
there’s any way to stop you, I’ll stop you – before it’s too late!”
At Collinwood, Julia has brought Alexis to Angelique’s room.
Alexis exclaims, “This room is beautiful!” Julia remarks, “It’s just
the way you left it! Nothing’s been changed!” Alexis asks, “What are
you talking about?” Julia replies, “I can understand why you had to
tell everyone else you’re your twin sister, but you don’t have to lie
to me. I know you’ve come back!” Alexis exclaims, “That’s impossible!
Angelique’s dead! You can’t come back from the dead!”. Julia replies,
“Angelique is not like everyone else”. Alexis says emphatically,
“She’s dead, and I’m her sister”. She tells Julia her luggage is
still in town and asks her to bring her one of Angelique’s nightgowns.
Julia asks, “Which one”. Alexis replies, “How should I know? I’ve never
seen any of them before. You pick one for me”. Julia brings a pink
one with big, furry short sleeves, saying, “This was her favorite”.
As Julia is walking through the bedroom hallway, Maggie warily
peeks out the door of her room. Julia tells her, “Mrs. Collins,
you might be interested in knowing that that yound lady is staying”
Maggie replies, “I see. By whose orders?” Julia replies, Mr.
Collins’, of course”.
Maggie goes down into the drawing room and finds that Quentin is
not there. However, she finds that the brandy container is empty.
She wonders, “Quentin, what is happening to you? What is happening
to all of us?”
Quentin is lurking about outside the door to Angelique’s room.
He hears piano music coming from inside the room, the same music
that was on the record Maggie had bought. He opens the doors and
goes in. Alexis is playing the piano, her back to him. Hearing
him, she turns around and says, “Oh, I’m so sorry. I couldn’t
sleep, and I found this piece of sheet music. I hope I didn’t
disturb you”. Quentin replies, “No, not at all”, staring at her.
Alexis asks, “Oh, is it the gown? Hoffman gave it to me. I left
my luggage in town. I hope you don’t mind”. Quentin replies, “No,
you look so much like her, especially in this room”. Alexis asks,
“You loved her very much, didn’t you? So did I”. She puts a hand on
his shoulder to comfort him. Maggie happens to come in the room and
shocked, runs off. Quentin goes after her.
Quentin finds Maggie in the drawing room. He tries to explain
to her, but she just complains that he’s never around, and even when
he is, he seems to be a thousand miles away. They get into a
tremondous argument. Maggie complains, “This is still Angelique’s
house!” Quentin shouts, “If you don’t like it here, then why don’t
you get out of Angelique’s house?” Maggie replies, “I will!” and
storms out the front door. Quentin goes out into the foyer as if
to follow, but then stops, apparently changing his mind. Alexis,
who’s on the stairs, asks, “What happened?” Quentin replies,
“It’s Maggie, she left”. Alexis asks, “Don’t you think you’d better
go after her?” Quentin at first says, “No. She’s just being childish!”
but then changes his mind again and goes and opens the front doors –
just in time to hear a car start and drive off. He remarks, “It’s too
late now, isn’t it?”

Quentin is in the drawing room drinking. Alexis, at the doorway,
asks, “Would I be an intrusion if I came in?” Quentin replies, “You
wouldn’t find me very good company”. Alexis comes in and says, “I had
no idea Maggie would leave because of me. Can’t everyone see how
different I am from Angelique?” Quentin points out, “You look exactly
like her”. Alexis replies, “But inside we’re very different. She
had this inner radiance. Everything was so easy for her. Nothing
was easy for me, least of all trying to be like her. What woman
wouldn’t want to be like she was? You must have loved her deeply”.
Quentin replies, “No one knows that better than I do how exquisite
she was”. Alexis asks, “Are you going to go find Maggie?” Quentin
says, “Perhaps”. Alexis says, “But she’s your wife!” Quentin replies,
“Please, if you don’t mind, I’d rather not talk about it”. Alexis, upset
at herself for upsetting him, remarks, “My talents are the opposite of my
sister’s. She could do no wrong. I can’t do anything right”. Quentin
tries to change the subject, “Let me hire you a car in the morning.
You’ll want to go into town to visit your father, of course.” Alexis
replies, “I want that least of all. That’s another difference between
my sister and me. I haven’t had any contact with my father for years,
and I’d like to keep it that way”. She says goodnight to him and leaves
the room.
Suddenly, Quentin hears a scream of terror in the foyer and runs
out to see what it is. Standing on the stairs is Amy, a look of terror
on her face. Looking at Alexis, she screams, “A ghost!” Quentin tells
her, “That’s Alexis, Angelique’s twin sister!”, but Amy insists, “No!
It’s Angelique!” Alexis says, “Perhaps I should go upstairs until you
get everything staightened out” and goes upstairs. Amy says, “Daniel
said she’d come back, but I didn’t believe it! I heard her say Maggie
left. Did she?” Quentin replies, “Yes”. Amy remarks, “Of course she
did, because Angelique came back! Please make her come back!” Quentin
dismisses her, “That’s not something you should concern yourself about.
Go to bed!” Amy refuses, saying, “No! She’s up there!”, but Quentin
orders her to go up and she reluctantly does. He then says to himself,
“I will not go after her! It must be her decision to come back. I
will not go after her!”
It is the next morning. The clock in the foyer reads 9:00. Quentin
looks up a number in an address book then dials the number, “Hello,
I’d like to make a person-to-person call…Maggie Collins…No, don’t
cancel the call…I’ll talk to her sister…Hello, Jennifer, Maggie isn’t
there?… When she comes back, tell her I’d like to speak to her…Well,
how are we supposed to settle our quarrel if she won’t talk to me?…
Would it help if I came to New York?….Jennifer, tell her I love her
when she comes back… Yes, Alexis is still here, she wants to meet her
nephew Daniel. He’s away right now….Goodbye”.
Cyrus is at the cottage visiting Bruno, telling him about seeing
someone who looks just like Angelique, saying, “For a moment, I thought
that perhaps your prophecy that Angelique would come back had come
true.” He then tells Bruno, “I need that address book of Angelique’s”.
Bruno asks, “Then why don’t you just walk in and get it?” Cyrus replies,
“I tried that, but Chris wouldn’t let me have it”. Bruno says, “So,you
want me to steal it for you, is that it? I understand”. The front door
opens and Quentin comes walking in. Bruno complains, “Quentin, don’t
you believe in knocking before coming in?” Quentin replies, “I don’t
believe in knocking on my own door.” He turns to Cyrus and asks, “If
you’d excuse us, I’d like to speak to Bruno alone, please”. Cyrus
obligingly leaves. Quentin tells Bruno, “All right, I’ll give you
one hour to pack up and get off my property!” Bruno retorts, “And
I’ll give you one minute to get off mine!” He proudly holds up a
piece of paper and says, “Take a look at this! A deed from your late
wife giving me sole possession of this cottage!” Quentin says, “That’s
a fraud, a forgery!” Bruno replies, “No such luck! Your wife was a
great patron of the arts. She gave this to me in appreciation of all
the music I dedicated to her.” Quentin says, “We’ll see about
that! I’m going to talk to Chris about this immediately!” Bruno
remarks, “If Chris is as clever a lawyer as I think he is, he’ll see
that my claim’s legitimate”. He adds, “I hear you have an interesting new
guest at Collinwood who resembles Angelique”. Quentin replies, “Twins
often resemble one another, but what goes on at Collinwood is no business
of yours” and leaves. Bruno muses, “Twins, eh?. I think I’ll go see her”.
There’s a knock at the door of Collinwood. Amy answers. It’s
Bruno. Amy tells him, “She’s up in her room”. Bruno asks, “Who’s
up in her room?” Amy replies, “Quentin says her name is Alexis”.
Bruno asks, “How do you know who I want to see?” Amy replies,
“You always come to see her”. Bruno points out, “Alexis? But I’ve
never met her before”. Amy replies, “Go up. You’ll see. I wonder
if they’ll make you call her Alexis too”.
In Angelique’s room, Alexis is playing the piano. Bruno comes in.
Alexis stops playing. Bruno asks, “Don’t stop! Keep playing!”
Alexis asks, “May I ask what you are doing here?” Bruno replies,
“Until a few moments ago, listening to some of my music. My name
is Bruno”. Alexis says, “Oh, I recognize you now! I like your
music very much”. Bruno replies, “Thank you. That piece was your
sister’s favorite”. Alexis remarks, “I can see why”. Bruno says,
“There’s a section where your sister always made the same mistake.
I wonder if you’re better. Could you play it for me?”, but Alexis
begs off, “I’d be so nervous playing it for the composer I’d make
nothing but mistakes”. She asks, “Do you want anything else?” Bruno
asks, “Why do you ask that?” Alexis replies, “The way you keep staring
at me”. Bruno responds, “Yes, as a matter of fact there is. There’s a
book here I really need. Could I borrow it?” Alexis replies, “I don’t
see why not, it seems that you and Angelique were such good friends”.
Bruno looks around and finds the address book. He then tells Alexis,
“Welcome to Colliwood. I live in a cottage on the estate. Anglique
deeded it me before she died. Please, come visit me whenever you like.
Are you staying long?” Alexis replies, “For a few days. I want to meet
my nephew David. He’s away right now”. Bruno asks, “If you’re the
daughter of Timothy Stokes, why have I never had the pleasure of meeting
you before?” Alexis explains, “I’ve been living in Florence the past
few years. I sailed from Genoa and docked in New York”. Bruno asks,
“How’s the weather in New York, warmer than here?” Alexis replies,
“Yes, but not much”. After Bruno leaves, Alexis takes the sheet music
from the piano, looks at the cover and sees that it’s entitled, “Ode to
Angelique” by Bruno Hess with a picture of Bruno there.
Quentin, sounding very frustrated, is talking on the telephone,
“Chris, it’s got to be a fraud or a forgery! Angelique wouldn’t do
soemthing like that!… Well, stick with it! We’ve got to get that
parasite off my property!”. Amy comes up to him with a telegram.
Quentin asks, “When did this come?” Amy replies, “When you were out”.
Quentin looks at it and asks, “Who opened it?” Amy apoligizes, “Sorry,
I couldn’t help it. I wanted to see if Maggie was coming back. She
said she isn’t sure, she has to think about it”. Quentin admonishes
her, “You know what you did was very wrong”. Amy replies, “I know,
but what about Alexis? Maggie went away because of her! At least I’m
not as bad as her!”
Cyrus is at the cottage with Bruno. Bruno gives him the address
book, saying, “Now you can continue with those experiment of yours”.
Cyrus thanks him. Bruno replies, “Don’t thank me, thank a certain
young lady. She’s Angelique’s twin sister”. Cyrus muses, “Twin, eh?”
After Cyrus leaves, Bruno calls the operator and asks, “Connect me to a
travel agency in New York…any one will do…any one that would have
information on what ships docked in New York from Genoa for the past week…
Yes, Genoa…”
Quentin is lurking outside of Angelique’s room. He hears “Ode
to Angelique” on the piano inside again. He goes in. Alexis suddenly
stops playing and starts weeping. Quentin asks, “Alexis, what’s wrong?”
Alexis replies, “I don’t know. Maybe it’s the music. Maybe it’s this
room, her room. I don’t know!”. Quentin replies, “I understand” and
kisses her…

Alexis pulls away and says, “Quentin, please…”. Quentin stops
and apoligizes, “I’m sorry. I don’t know what came over me”. Alexis
replies, “You know and so do I. You thought I was Angelique, just like
everyone else. It’s been that way all my life, as if I didn’t exist!
You’re just like Julia and Amy, you think I’m a ghost, and the way
Bruno acted this afternoon…” Quentin asks, “Bruno was here?” Alexis
replies, “Yes. He wanted to see if I were Angelique”. Quentin vows,
“He won’t come here again!”, but Alexis tells him, “It doesn’t matter.
I won’t be here. I thought you of all people would know who and what
I am”. Quentin apologizes to her for thinking she was Angelique for
a moment. She tells him she’s sorry for making Maggie leave and
says maybe it would help if he left, but Quentin tells her, “It’s
not that easy. I got a telegram from her saying she’ll have to
think things over before she decides anything”. Quentin finally
convinces her to stay, “Please stay. You have to. You need to
meet Daniel”.
Sabrina, dressed in a white lab coat, is in Cyrus’ lab, reading
a journal. Bruno comes in and remarks,”Do you always dress in a
stiff, starched coat?” Sabrina replies, “It suits my personality”.
He tells her, “I think you’d look better in something soft and silky”.
Sabrina replies, “You’ll never find out one way or the other!” Bruno
says, “Don’t bet on that!” and tries to hug her, but stops when he sees
Cyrus coming down. Cyrus tells Sabrina to go upstairs, saying, “I’m
expecting a special delivery package”. Sabrina obediently goes upstairs.
Bruno asks Cyrus, “Are you really that cool or perhaps you didn’t
see what just happened”. Cyrus replies that he saw it but it doesn’t
bother him. Bruno asks, “Don’t you care?” Cyrus replies, “About
Sabrina? Oh, I care very much”. Bruno asks, “Then why no blowup?”
Cyrus replies, “Because it didn’t mean anything”. Bruno asks, “How
can you say that knowing how I am?” Cyrus replies, “Because I know
how Sabrina is”. Bruno continues, “But you know how well I play the
game”. Cyrus replies, “That’s why I need your blood for my tests”.
Bruno asks, “Is that why I’m indispensible for your experiments?”
Cyrus takes a blood sample from him. Bruno asks, “What would you say,
Cyrus, if I were to tell you I was conducting an experiment of my own?”
Cyrus replies that he wouldn’t care. Bruno continues, “What if I
were to tell you that my experiment dealt with something that would
interest you?” Cyrus replies, “We’re not interested in the same
things”. Bruno continues, “You aren’t interested in the occult?”
Cyrus replies, “My interests are in science. All I want to do is
gain knowledge to benefit mankine”. Bruno tells him, “Mine has to
do with bringing the dead back to life”. Cyrus asks, “Does this
have anyting to do with your prophecy that Angelique will return?”
Bruno replies, “If you won’t tell me about your experiment, I won’t
tell you about mine”. Just then, Sabrina comes back down the stairs.
She tells Cyrus, “The package has arrived, but the man who brought it
insists on seeing you”. Cyrus replies, “I can’t see every messenger that
comes here. Go tell him you’re authorized to take the package”, but the
man, a short, fat balding middle aged man, who has apparently followed
Sabrina down, interrupts, “I suggest you see me. I’m Horace Gladstone”.
Cyrus gasps, “You’re Horace Gladstone!?” Gladstone remarks, “I thought
you’d want to see me”. Cyrus tells Bruno and Sabrina to leave, saying
he wants to speak to Gladstone alone. After Bruno and Sabrina leave,
Cyrus says to Gladstone, “It wasn’t necessary for you to bring the
package all the way from Boston yourself”. Gladstone replies, “I
was interested in meeting the man who was working with this particular
chemical synthesis. I may not be as active as I used to be in the
chemical field, but I’ve retained a particular interest in this synthesis.
Its inclusion in your work naturally aroused my curioustiy, especially
as to the aims of your experiment”. Cyrus replies, “I don’t discuss my
work with anyone”. Gladstone warns him, “I hope you’re aware of the
potency of this synthesis”. Cyrus replies, “More than you do. Good
bye!” But before Gladstone leaves, he warns, “One word of warning.
One reason I am no longer active in chemistry is that I was coming
closer and closer to truths that are best left unknown”.
Bruno is talking on the phone to a travel agent, “No ships from
Genoa?…None at all in the last week?…I see! Well, thanks for
the information!” Suddenly, he grabs his throat as he starts to
strangle. He gasps, “No! No!”
Alexis is in Angelique’s room playing “Ode to Angelique” on the
piano once again when suddenly Bruno bursts into the room gasping,
“Stop it! Stop it! I know you’re doing this to me! You and your
spells!” Alexis replies, “I don’t know what you’re talking about”.
Bruno gasps, “The doll! Before it’s too late! You knew I called
the travel office, didn’t you?…The pain! Please stop the pain!”
But the pain suddenly stops. Brunos says, “Thank you! I feel
better now!” Alexis tells him, “Please leave, right now!”, but
Bruno says, “You never sailed to New York from Genoa, did you?
There have been no ships from Genoa to New York in the past week!
Why did you lie to me?” Alexis replies, “I don’t owe you an explanation!
Didn’t it occur to you that I might have wealthy friends and sailed
on a private yacht? Now go, or I’ll call someone!” Bruno replies,
“I’m not going to leave. My experiment’s not over yet. Why can’t you
just tell me the truth?” Alexis shouts, “I can’t stand it anymore!
Please leave me alone!”
Cyrus is with Sabrina at the lab. Sabrina remarks, “You’re so
quiet, and so secretive about your journal”. Cyrus promises,
“You’ll know all you need to know as soon as the time comes”.
Sabrina finds a jewelry box on the table, opens it and finds a ring
inside. She asks, “Cyrus, did you put this here?” Cyrus replies, “What?
Oh, the ring? As a matter of fact, I did”. Sabrina asks, “Why?”
Cyrus replies, “So you’d find it, of course”. Sabrina asks, “Is it
for ME?” Cyrus replies, “I don’t know who else it would be for”.
Sabrina asks, with some trepidation, “Before I make a fool of myself and
hug and kiss you, it’s an engagement ring, isn’t it?” Cyrus replies
that it is. She hugs him and says, “I love yoU!” Cyrus tells her,
“There’s one thing I have to warn you about. You know how I am when it
comes to my work”. Sabrina replies, “I don’t mind”. Cyrus notes, “Some
women would”. Sabrina replies, “Your devotion to your work is one of the
things I like about you”. Cyrus starts to babble on about good and
evil. Sabrina, puzzled, asks, “Does this have anything to do with
your experiment?” Cyrus replies, “No, it’s just an abstraction.
No one’s found ever an abstraction in a test tube”.
Bruno is in a graveyard somewhere. He thinks, “Are you here, or
are you somewhere else? I have to know!” He goes into a crypt.
One of the tombs has the inscription,

1939 – 1969

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

Bruno hammers at the tomb with a hammer and a pick. Suddenly, he
hears a voice behind him shout, “Bruno!” He turns and sees that it’s
Quentin and Alexis. Quentin remarks, “I didn’t think even you would
do something like this!” Bruno replies, “I could think of no other
way to prove the truth”. Quentin orders, “Get out!”, but Bruno
replies, “I’m going through with this. I’m convinced that this
grave is empty!” Quentin threatens, “If you don’t leave, I’m going to
call the police”. Bruno replies, “You wouldn’t do that. You wouldn’t
to open up some things in the past”. Alexis asks, “What is he talking
about?” Quentin replies, “Nothing. He’s just making empty threats”.
Quentin tells Bruno, “I’ll make you an offer to leave the estate and
get out of Collinsport. I know you won’t leave voluntarily, so I’m going
to give you $25,000 (worth about $150,000 in today’s dollars!) in cash
for the deed to the cottage”. Bruno replies, “Let me make a deal with
you. Let me open the grave and if there’s a body in there, I’ll give you
the deed, leave town and never come back”. Alexis is aghast, “No! I
will not have my sister’s tomb defiled!” Quentin tells Bruno, “Get out!
I’m going to have this tomb sealed, and if I find it’s been tampered
with, I WILL call the police!” Bruno leaves. Quentin growls, “That man
is a parasite!”. Alexis tells him, “I don’t want to stay here any longer
after what’s just happened. I’d prefer to come back another time”.
Quentin replies, “I understand. I’ll take you back to Collinwood” and
takes her away.
Bruno has gone to the cottage. He grumbles to Cyrus, “If only I
had a few more minutes, I would have had that grave opened and found
no body in there!” Cyrus tells him, “You believe that woman is
Angelique because psychologically you want her to be”. Bruno moans,
“Why can’t you help me? You’re a scientist, there must be some way
to prove she’s Angelique!” Cyrus refuses to do anything to help.
Bruno asks, “How long are you going to stay cooped up here in your
own little world”. Cyrus retorts, “Your world is even narrower.
You’re the only person in it. Mine, on the other hand, is open to
expansion, and expand it will, very soon!” Bruno exclaims, “I’m going
to go mad if I don’t find out tonight!” and storms off.
At Collinwood, Alexis asks Quentin, “Any word from your wife?” Quentin
replies, “No”. Alexis asks, “Is there anything I can do to help?”
Quentin replies, “No, this is just something I have to work out myself”.
She tells him, “Good night”. Quentin replies, “Good night. I’ll be
down here if you need me”.
Sabrina is in the lab taking care of the rabbits. Horace Gladstone
comes down the stairs. Sabrina asks, “How did you get in?” Gladstone
replies, “The door was open”. Sabrina becomes alarmed, says, “Oh,
Cyrus will be very upset with me if he finds out I forgot to lock it!
Excuse me!” and runs upstairs to lock the door. Gladstone takes
advantage of her absence to unlock a basement door. Sabrina returns.
Gladstone remarks, “I take it he isn’t here. Any chance he’ll be
back soon?” Sabrina replies, “No, he has business in town. He won’t
be back until late tonight. He left me here to close the lab for him”.
Gladstone asks, “Why would he be so upset the door was open?” Sabrina
replies, “His work is very important to him. He considers this his
private sanctuary. He’s very dedicated to his work”. Gladstone remarks,
“Yes, I gathered as much in my conversation with him”. Sabrina tells
him, “I have to close up the lab now”. Gladstone tells her, “When
you see him, tell him to call me. I’ll be at my hotel” and leaves.
Alexis is in Angelique’s room brushing her hair. The doors
suddenly burst open and Bruno comes barging into the room. Alexis
exclaims, “How dare you come here again!” Bruno replies, “And I don’t
intend to leave! Not until you tell me why you’re torturing me like
this!” Alexis contemptuously remarks, “I don’t think I’ve ever met
anyone like you!” Bruno points out, “That exactly what you said
the first time we met 2 years ago!” He whines, “Why are you doing
this to me, pretending to be someone you aren’t? Without you, life
is pointless for me! You’ve got to tell me why!” Alexis remarks,
“I’m beginning to feel sorry for you. Anyone who molds his life
around someone coming back from the dead is to be pitied”. Bruno
replies, “But YOU made me feel that way! You gave me every reason
to be! If you will only tell me why you’re rejecting me now! I
love you more than anything! I love you!” Alexis replies, “I’ll
tell you one thing, one last time. I am not Angelique!” Bruno
replies, “I’ll never accept that!” Alexis tells him, “Then you must
leave and never come here again!” Bruno refuses to leave. Alexis
threatens, “Then I’ll have to use force to get you out of here!”
Bruno replies, “Then use it!” Alexis leaves.
Horace Gladstone lets himself into Cyrus’ lab through the door
he had unlocked earlier. He snoops around with a flashlight.
He sees Cyrus’ rolltop desk, pries it open with a crowbar, finds
Cyrus’ scientific journal, and starts reading it…
Quentin is in the drawing room. Alexis comes into the room and
says, “Sorry to disturb you, but that man, Bruno, he’s back! Now!
In my room!” Bruno appears at the doorway and says, “Ah, so you
admit it’s YOUR room!” Quentin exclaims, “I told you you were
forbidden from ever entering this house!” Bruno asks, “Quentin,
isn’t it possible she fooled us at the seance and isn’t dead?”
Quentin replies, “You’re mad!”, but Bruno continues, “I’m surprised
you don’t realize who she is! But then you never were as close to her
as I was, were you?” Quentin shouts, “GET OUT!” Bruno mockingly says,
“The master of Collinwood has spoken!” and leaves, vowing, “We’ll meet
again! We always do!”
Gladstone reads Cyrus’ journal,

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

Gladstone gasps, “In seperate identities!” He hears a door open.
Cyrus comes down the stairs into his lab and turns on the lights.
He finds his rolltop desk opened, a flashlight and a crowbar lying
there. He looks around and calls out, “All right! Come out where
I can see you!” Gladstone comes out of hiding, muttering, “This
is a trifle embarassing”. Cyrus remarks, “Well, Mr. Gladstone. My
intuition told me you couldn’t be trusted. How long have you been here?”
Gladstone replies, “Long enough to see that I’ve contributed to your
most intriguing experiment. I just couldn’t contain my curiousity!
Cyrus asks, “Has your curiosity been satisfied?” Gladstone replies,
“I’m afraid it hasn’t. Your handwriting leaves a lot to be desired.
However, I have learned enough. I too share your interest in elevating
man. I would like to help you”. Cyrus growls, “We share nothing in
common! Now leave! I have much work to do!” Gladstone remarks, “I’ll
let you think about it for a few days. I think you have entered on a
lonely and perhaps dangerous course. You may find yourself in need of
a friend along the way”. Cyrus replies, “I’ll keep that in mind. Good
night!”. Gladstone leaves.
At Collinwood, Alexis comes into the drawing room carring a tea
service. She tells Quentin, “I brought you some tea”. She remarks,
“I hope we’ve seen the last of that man Bruno”. Quentin replies, “I’m
sure we haven’t” Alexis asks, “Isn’t there any way of getting him off
your property?” Quentin replies, “Not according to my lawyer”.
Alexis remarks, “When he was here, he said mentioned a seance. Would
that have anything to do with my sister’s death?” Quentin replies,
“You have every right to know everything about your sister, but…”
Alexis interrupts, “But you’d rather not talk about it?” Quentin
replies, “If you don’t mind”. Alexis replies, “Of course I don’t”.
Cyrus is now alone in his lab. He’s holding a flask full of
some dark liquid. He takes a beaker and pour its contents into
the flask and swirls it to mix it. The liquid starts emitting
vapor. He pours some of it into a drinking glass, then goes and
writes in his journal,

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

He is about to drink the liquid but stops when he hears a door.
Sabrina comes down the stairs. He remarks, “Oh, Sabrina, what
are you doing here?” Sabrina replies, “I was about to ask you
the same question. I saw the lights on and came in to check”.
Cyrus explains, “I’m working late”. She tells him, “You look tired.
You should get some rest”. He promises, “Perhaps I will soon. The
experiment is almost over”. Sabrina remarks, “It’ll be good
seeing more of you”. He reminds her, “I warned you about me and
my work”. She replies, “Yes, you’re very dedicated to your work.
I like that. I don’t mind playing second fiddle to your work.”
He tells her, “Now run along, I have work to do”. Sabrina leaves.
Cyrus picks up the glass again and looks at it. He takes a
deep breath then downs it with one gulp. Suddenly, he stiffens
and drops the glass, then grabs his stomach and groans in pain,
then collapses onto the floor in agony.

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

“I owe you one hundred dollars

John Yaeger”

He wonders, “Who is John Yaeger? Could he be someone I met last
night after I took the compound? But I don’t remember anything after
I took the compound. What could have gone wrong?” He searches through
the pockets some more and finds a bright blue matchbook with the
inscription “Eagle Bar”. A man comes down the stairs and calls out, “Mr.
Longworth? My name is Paxton. I’m from the police. I’d like to
ask you a few questions, if you don’t mind. I believe you’re the
fiance of Sabrina Shaw. She had a very bad scare last night, but she’s
not physically hurt. Carolyn Loomis found her wandering through the
woods. She said she had been attacked by a strange man in her apartment
room, but a neighbor heard the commotion and scared him off. I want to
know if you left this house at all last night”. Cyrus asks, “You can’t
think it was me!” Paxton replies, “No, you don’t fit the description.
After we left Miss Shaws’s apartment, we got a report of another attacks
on Clover St., then at about 3:00 one of a man fitting the description
in this neighborhood. He was seen entering this house at exactly
3:10 in the morning. Were you in this house?” Cyrus replies, “Yes,
I went to bed about midnight. Did they say what this man looked like?”
Paxton says, “Yes, and how he got in. He let himself in with his own
key.” Cyrus replies, “That’s impossible! The only people who have keys
to this house are my housekeeper and I.” Paxton, “He could have had a
skeleton key. Burglars often have those”. He continues, “The strange
thing is, the stranger wasn’t seen leaving this house. He must either
still be in the house, or left though an exit we don’t know about”.
Cyrus points out, “There is this other door that leads to the courtyard.
I always keep it locked, but I found it wide open this morning”. Cyrus
asks, “What did this man look like, so I can keep a look out for him”.
Paxton replies, “He was a big man, very broad in the shoulders, he was
very well dressed, and he had a moustache”. After Paxton leaves, Cyrus
holds the IOU and hte matchbox and recalls Paxton’s words, “He was a big
man, very broad in the shoulders, he was very well dressed, and he had
a moustache”
Carolyn is with Sabrina in Sabrina’s room. She asks, “Anything I can
get you?” Sabrina replies, “I want Cyrus!” Carolyn tells her, “I’ve
been trying to reach him all night. I’ll try again”. But before she
can, there’s a knock at the door. It’s Cyrus. He tells them, “The
police told me what happened!” Sabrina tells him, “It was EVIL!
EVIL! It makes no sense! My ring! My ring! I don’t understand!”,
holding up her right hand. Cyrus looks at her hand and gasps, “He took
your engagement ring!” Carolyn remarks, “She’s been like this all
night”. Cyrus replies, “I’d better call the druggist and order her a
sedative. A good night’s sleep will do her a lot of good”. He goes to
the phone and reaches into his pocket for his address book, but is shocked
to find Sabrina’s ring in there…
Later, Sabrina is sleeping peacefully. Cyrus tells Carolyn, “There’s
no need for you to stay here”. Carolyn says, “I don’t mind”, but Cyrus
assures her, “She’ll be asleep through the night. The sedative works
that long”. Carolyn replies, “All right, I’ll go home, then. I might
take a nap myself. Hope everything turns out all right” and leaves.
Cyrus thinks to himself, “The man who took the ring had to be me!
It couldn’t have been anyone else! There’s no other way I could have
gotten the ring, but why can’t I remember anything? And what else did
I do last night?”
Carolyn returns to the Old House and is surprised to find Willie
dressed nicely. She asks, “What’s the occasion? I haven’t seen you
dressed like that in years”. Willie replies, “I ran into Quentin.
He invited me to come to Collinwood to meet Angelique’s sister Alexis”.
Carolyn becomes upset, “We can’t go through this tacky drama again!”
Willie points out, “It’s not Angelique. It’s her sister”. Carolyn
counters, “Her TWIN sister! It’ll be like Babylon Revisted! Why
don’t you go through this properly? You should be in the middle of
a book, so she can lure you away from it!” Willie replies, “As a matter
of fact, I will be in the middle of a book soon, thanks to your
strange friend Barnabas Collins! At least my companions are human!”
Carolyn replies, “That’s not my fault!” Willie asks, “Then why do
you want to release him from his coffin so much?” Carolyn gets into
an argument with Willie about chaining Barnabas in the coffin, Carolyn
saying it’s cruel even if he is a vampire. But Willie tells her, “He’s
going to stay chained in there. He’s going to be my way back to the
top! If you try to let him out, you’ll be sorry!” Carolyn begs,
“Please don’t go to Collinwood!”, but Willie refuses to listen, “I’m
invited and I’m going!” Carolyn says, “No good can come from
this”, but Willie replies, “I’ve got to prove something to myself.
I’ve got to prove I’ve lived her down”.
Sabrina has a dream about the man taking her ring from her….
Willie is having drinks with Alexis in the drawing room of
Collinwood. They talk about Angelique. Willie learns from Alexis
that she hadn’t had much contact with Angelique for a long time.
Willie asks, “Why don’t you have dinner with me sometime and I’ll
tell you all about her. How about tonight?” Alexis begs off, saying
she’s having dinner with Quentin tonight. Unknown to them, Carolyn
is in the foyer eavesdropping on them with a jealous expression on
her face. Willie says, “Some other time, then. You know where I can
be reached”. Alexis replies, “Yes, at the house that bears your name”.
Willie takes her hands and holds them. Carolyn sees this, and furious,
Carolyn goes to Sabrina’s room but finds she’s not there.
Cyrus is in his lab reading the some of the notes he had written
the night he had taken the compound,

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

He thinks, “Nothing after that, only this terrible scrawl. I couldn’t
have written that. Or could I? What sort of condition was I in?” Carolyn
comes to the lab. She tells him, “Sabrina’s not in her room!” Cyrus
replies, “That’s impossible! That sedative should have lasted all night!”
Carolyn complains, “I thought you were going to stay with her! That’s
why I left! Why did you leave her alone? What if that man had come
after her?” Cyrus says, “We’ve got to find her!” They quickly leave
to do so.
Sabrina is outside the front doors of Collinwood, thinking to herself,
“This is where it all began, long ago”. She goes in, goes into the
drawing room, sits down at the table, puts her hands on the table and
says, “Our fingers must touch! The circle must not be broken! Let the
seance begin!”

Elizabeth says to Roger, “Where can Maggie and Quentin be?” Roger
adds, “And Hoffman. It’s not like her to leave the house”. Elizabeth
remarks, “In a way, I’m glad Maggie isn’t here. I hope David shows
an open mind about her.” Roger replies, “I don’t think David will
ever accept anyone else in place of Angelique.” Elizabeth asks, “Are
you speaking for David, or yourself?” They go into the drawing room.
Sabrina says, “I’ve been waiting for all of you! Isn’t it time for
the seance to begin?” Roger and Elizabeth are shocked. Roger asks,
“Sabrina? What seance? What are you talking about?” Sabrina asks,
“Where are the others? Where’s Cyrus?” Roger tells her, “There is
going to be no seance tonight”. Sabrina protests, “But they planned
it! Cyrus and Mrs. Collins!” Elizabeth asks, “Maggie?” Sabrina
replies, “Her name is not Maggie! It’s Angelique! You know that!”
Roger and Elizabeth go out into the foyer to talk. Roger asks, “What
happened to her?” The granfather clock strikes 11:00. Roger gasps,
“She thinks this is that night! What else could it be? It was exactly
this time six months ago that we gathered in this room!” Elizabeth
says, “We’ve got to do something about it!”. Roger replies, “I’ll call
Sabrina is lying on a couch in another room. Cyrus is with her.
Sabrina complains, “What am I doing here? I want to go back to the
seance!” Cyrus tells her, “That was six months ago!” Sabrina
asks, “What are you talking about? YOU planned it! You were so
anxious to go to it!” Unable to convince her it’s six months later,
Cyrus leaves the room. Roger, waiting outside, asks, “What happened
to her?” Cyrus tells her about the attack on Sabrina, saying, “It
was a great trauma to her”, saying it’s causing her to think it’s the
night of the seance six months ago. Elizabeth is inside with Sabrina.
Sabrina asks, “What are they talking about? Is Cyrus trying to talk
Mr. Collins into it? Cyrus and Mrs. Collins are so interested in the
The clock on the mantel at Bruno’s house reads 11:30. Cyrus is
there with Bruno. Bruno is asking, “At this hour? A summons from
the great house of Collinwood? Does the master of Collinwood mind?”
Cyrus replies, “Mrs. Stoddard said it would be all right”. Bruno
remarks, “She’s back? Well, a lot has happened at Collinwood while
she’s been away”. Cyrus tells him, “It’s an emergency! Sabrina
needs help!” He explains that Sabrina was attacked by a strange
man earlier, that her mind has reverted to the night of the seance
six months ago. He tells Bruno, “I talked to Dr. Shaw at the hospital
and he said if we went through with the seance again, it might snap
her out of it”. Bruno asks, “Will that same spirit appear?” Cyrus
assures him it will not. Bruno recalls the first seance, “Angelique
was there. She was beautiful, smiling. She knew Quentin hated her
interest in the occult…” He decides, “No, we can never relive that
night again! That smile on her face, that was her last smile! That
night, when her hand touched mine, it was the last time she touched
me! At that seance, Angelique died!” He pauses for a moment then
says, “Or did she? I keep wondering. She had many powers.” Cyrus
asks, “Are you coming to the house or aren’t you?” Bruno replies,
“Maybe at the seance we should ask lovely Alexis to sit in for her
late sister Angelique”. Cyrus gasps, “Bruno!” Bruno continues,
“Why not? The dead can’t die twice. What if by some miracle,
Alexis IS Angelique? Think about it. Going to the seance where
you died, even Angelique couldn’t carry that out without showing
some sign”. Cyrus points out, “We’re doing this for Sabrina and
not for you!” Bruno replies, “If I go, it’ll be for my own purposes!”
Roger is in Angelique’s room talking to the portrait, “No one will
ever let us forget that night, will they? They want us to relive it
again! Sitting there, waiting, waiting for that moment. It will
haunt me for the rest of my life!” Alexis comes into the room. Roger
sees her and exclaims, “Angelique!!!!!”
Downstairs, Quentin, who’s returned, is telling Elizabeth, “No!
I won’t go through with it!” Elizabeth tells her, “But the doctor
says it’s necessary to help Sabrina”. Quentin says, “No!”. Elizabeth
says, “If you’re worried about Maggie finding out…” Quentin replies,
“There’s something I’ve got to tell you about Maggie…”
Back in Angelque’s room, Roger is saying, “Her twin?” Alexis replies,
“Yes, I’m certain she must have mentioned me”. Roger replies, “Yes,
but you’re so much like her. You move as she did, you speak as she
did. Your smile, your eyes. I can’t believe you’re not the same person”
Alexis tells him, “You must. When you get to know me, you’ll find out
how different I am”. She holds hour her hands and says, “Touch me.
You’ll see I’m not a ghost”. Roger takes her hands in his. Alexis
assures him, “I am quite real, Roger Collins”.
In the drawing room, Quentin has finished telling Elizabeth about
Maggie. Elizabeth exclaims, “I cannot believe that Maggie simply
left! Maybe you should have asked Alexis to leave!” Quentin pours
himself a very large drink and remarks, “It must be this house. Nothing
ever goes right in this house”. Elizabeth replies, “It’s not the house.
It’s us”. Quentin says, “I don’t need your moralizing right now”. She
asks him again about the seance. He replies, “There isn’t going to be
a seance!” Elizabeth asks, “And let the poor girl go on as she is?”
Quentin replies, “That’s not our responsibility”. Elizabeth couters,
Perhaps that’s our problem. We don’t know what our responsibilities
are”. Roger and Alexis come into the room. Roger introduces Alexis
to Elizabeth. Alexis excuses herself to let them talk. As she approaces
the door, Sabrina enters and announces, “It’s midnight. Isn’t that the
time you set for the seance, Angelique? Are we all ready?”
Quentin walks out angrily into the foyer. Alexis comes out after
him and says, “I don’t understand. What’s going on?” At that moment,
Cyrus comes in through the front doors bringing Bruno with him. Quentin
sees Bruno and shouts, “I thought I told you never to come to this house
again!” Bruno replies, “I was told it was an emergency”. Cyrus tells
Quentin, “If you don’t want to do it, at least let us do it without
you”. Bruno remarks, “Maybe Alexis would like to sit in the seat where
your wife sat. I think maybe she’d like to see the circumstances her
sister died in”. Alexis demands, “Quentin! I’d like to know what
he’s talking about!”
Inside the drawing room, Sabrina is complaining, “Why am I the only
one who knows how necessary this is?” Elizabeth says, “Roger, I think
this is necessary too”. Roger tells her he’s against the idea. They
argue about it.
Out in the foyer, Alexis is saying, “I thought my sister died of a
stroke!”. Quentin replies, “Yes she did, but she died at that seance.
Are you afraid to go through with it?” Alexis says, “I’m willing to,
if you don’t forbid it”. Quentin replies, “No, I won’t forbid it,
but I won’t have anything to do with it!” He tells Bruno, “You can
stay for this, but afterwards you are to leave and never come back!”
and storms off. Bruno remarks, “This is going to be interesting,
very interesting!”
Everyone sits at the table. Bruno remarks to Alexis, “That’s
right, Alexis! That’s where Angelique sat, next to Roger!” An empty
chair is set for the missing Quentin. Sabrina announces, “Cyrus will
start now!” The seance starts. Cyrus calls out, “Spirits of the
dead! We humbly entreat you! If any of you wish to speak to us,
hear our voices! Spirits of the Dead, we want to find out what lies
beyond this life we live! Hear me! Hear me! If any of you wishes
to communicate with us, you may use any of us as your voice!” Suddenly,
Sabrina points to Alexis and says, “She’s dying!” then screams, “MURDER!
MURDER!” Alexis collapses…

Cyrus takes a very shaken Sabrina to some room in Collinwood. He
asks, “Are you all right?” Sabrina replies, “No! What did I say?”
Cyrus asks, “Don’t you remember?” Sabrina replies, “No, tell me”.
Suddenly, Quentin comes bursting into the room saying, “So, you had
to go through with it, didn’t you? Anglelique was NOT murdered!
She died of a stroke.” Sabrina, suddenly remembering, exclaims,
“It’s true! I remember! It’s true! Angelique was murdered!
Murdered!” Quentin asks, “Based on what evidence?” Sabrina replies,
“That’s what the voice said”. Cyrus asks, “This voice that you heard,
was it the same voice from the first seance?” Quentin insists, “The
voice you heard was imaginary!” Cyrus tells Quentin he believes
that there was a voice. They argue about this. Quentin leaves in
a huff. Cyrus tells Sabrina, “You’ve got to tell me everything you
know. You’re holding something back.” Sabrina denies this, but Cyrus
keeps insisting, so she finally tells him, “You were also so enamored
of Angelique. She was the one who told you about seances. I was
jealous of her. But I also knew she was cruel, demanding. How close
were you to Angelique? Did you kill her, Cyrus?” Cyrus exclaims,
“No! How could you accuse me of a thing like that?! You said you
loved me because I was a gentle man. You can’t really believe I’d
do that, do you?” Sabrina replies, “Sometimes you seem so attracted
to evil.” Cyrus says, “I loathe it!” Sabrina counters, “You’re attracted
to it. That’s why you loathe it”. Cyrus says, “I did not kill Angelique”.
Sabrina replies, “But someone did. Someone who was in that room”.
In the drawing room, Quentin is telling Alexis, “Sorry about what
happened”. Alexis exclaims, “Angelique was murdered!” Quentin says,
“Now you don’t reallly believe that. The girl was imagining things.
She had been attacked, she was hysterical. Alexis, you can’t take
this seriously!” She replies, “Oh, can’t I? Was an autopsy ever
performed?” Quentin tells her, “Yes, and the result was a broken
blood vessel, a stroke”. Alexis says, “But she was so young. Didn’t
anyone find it strange that someone so young would die of a stroke?”
Quentin replies, “Everyone did, but they had to accept it”. Alexis
asks, “Even my father?” Quentin replies, “Even your father”. Alexis,
however, continues, “Who killed her? I’ve got to find out!”
In the foyer, David is asking Quentin, “Why was Aunt Elizabeth
crying? I bet it’s something Maggie did!” Quentin tells him, “Maggie’s
gone”. David asks, “Maggie’s gone?” Quentin replies, “Yes, but she’ll
be coming back soon”. Alexis comes out of the drawing room into the
foyer. David exclaims, “Mother! You’ve come back!” He goes up to her
and hugs her, saying, “Mother, I knew you’d come back! I knew you
weren’t dead!” Quentin tries to explains, “Now Daniel, this is your
mother’s twin sister, your Aunt Alexis”. Daniel asks Alexis, “You’re
her twin?” Alexis replies, “Yes”, but Daniel says, “It’s not true!
I don’t believe it! You won’t tell me the truth! You won’t admit
it!” and runs upstairs. Quentin is about to run after him but Alexis
tells him, “Let me! Trust me with him.”
Cyrus is still with Sabrina. They are discussing the attack.
Sabrina tells Cyrus, “I remember seeing that figure in my dream breaking
into my room. That’s the last thing I remember. Then I remember seeing
woods, then this house. Why did I come here, Cyrus?” Cyrus asks, “How
did you feel when this strange figure was in your room?” Sabrina replies,
“I was terrified, there was such a feeling of evil. Why did he break
into my room?” Cyrus tells her, “I hate to talk about it, the police
said he was seen breaking into my house too”. Sabrina asks, “Did he
take anything?” Cyrus replies, “No”. He assures her, “You’ll never
see him again”. Sabrina asks, “How do you know? And why did he take
my engagement ring but nothing from your lab?” Cyrus replies, “I don’t
know”. He vows, “I’ll find your ring!” Sabrina asks, “Does what happened
tonight affect how you feel about me?” Cyrus assures her that it doesn’t.
He tells her, “You don’t have to worry about anything anymore. I’ll make
sure you’ll never have to go through something like this again”.
Alexis goes to Daniel’s room, where David is looking out the window.
She asks him, “You loved your mother very much, didn’t you?” Daniel
replies, “Yes, but it wasn’t always mushy. We had arguments sometimes.
But you already know that”. Alexis asks, “Now how would I know that?
I’m a different person”. Daniel, very upset, says, “Just let me think!”
Cyrus is with Sabrina in the foyer, getting ready to leave. Sabrina
remarks, “I should go apoligize to Mr. Collins about what happened.”
Cyrus assures her, “That’s not necessary”, but Sabrina insists, “Yes it
is. He’ll never forget what happened at the seance tonight. What
have I started, Cyrus?” Cyrus replies, “You didn’t start anything.
It started long ago, at the first seance”. Sabrina asks, “What’s going
to happen? Let’s get out of this house and never come back. There is
evil here, I can feel it, a terrible evil!”
Later, Cyrus is in his lab alone, talking on the telephone, “Yes,
yes, it worked very well in the compound, but when tested, there was
a serious side effect, it seemed to cause a loss of memory…Would it
be possible to reformulate the synthesis to eliminate this amnesia?…
Thank you!” He hangs up and looks thoughtfully at the book of matches
from the “Eagle Bar”.
The Eagle Bar is empty save for the bartender puttering around. The
door opens and Cyrus comes in. The bartender greets him, “Good Evening,
Sir. What can I do for you?” Cyrus replies, “I’d like a sherry, please”.
The bartender remarks, “Don’t get many calls for sherry in a place like
this. But we have some. I’ll have to open a bottle, though. Don’t
think I’ve seen you here before”. Cyrus asks, “Not last night?” The
bartender replies, “I wouldn’t have noticed, what with what happened
here last night”. Cyrus asks, “What happened?” The bartender recounts,
“This big bruiser came in her, pockets full of money. He stood just
where you are. He threw down a hundred dollar bill and asked for a
bottle of scotch. That was my first mistake. He drank like no one
I’ve ever seen. He just about finished half the bottle. With every
drink, he got meaner. He tried to break Jake Crowe’s arm! You know
Jake Crowe. Nicest guy in the world. Never has a problem with anyone.
They were talking, then they started arguing, then suddenly, this big guy
grabs Jake’s arm and tries to break it! I tried to stop him, but he hit
me with the hardest punch I’ve ever felt and knocked me down. Then three
men tried to tackle him. He just threw them off. He was the stongest
man I’ve ever seen. Then he threw Lefty Blain through that window over
there. The guy was nuts! Then he just stood there, waiting to see if
anyone else wanted to tangle with him. Nobody did, so he put on his
coat and left. Didn’t even ask for change for his hundred. I’d hate
to be here when he comes back for his change”. Cyrus assures him,
“He won’t”. The bartender asks, “How do you know?”
Daniel is asleep in his room. He has a dream…

In the dream, he hears a voice call, “Daniel, oh Daniel!
Daniel!!” He calls back, “Mother, are you in this room?”
The voice does not respond, instead, it laughs. Daniel
begs, “Mother, please don’t laugh at me! Please let me
see you again!” The voice asks, “Can’t you see me, Daniel?”
Daniel asks, “Where are you?” Finally, he sees Angelique
at the window. He tries to get up, but finds that he can’t.
He cries out, “Mother, I can’t move! Come to me, Mother!”
Angelique starts to fade away. Daniel begs, “Don’t go away!”,
but Angelique fades into nothingness, leaving only dismbodied
laughter. Daniel begs, “Mother, plese don’t laugh at me!
Please don’t laugh at me!”,

then screams. He awakens to find Alexis standing over him. Alexis
asks, “Daniel, what’s wrong?” Daniel replies, “Nothing. It was just a
dream”. He continues, “You’ve got to promise me something.” Alexis asks,
“What?” Daniel replies, “That you won’t lie to me.” Alexis says,
“Of course not”. Daniel continues, “I won’t tell anyone else, I
promise”. Alexis asks, “Tell them what?” Daniel replies, “You really
are my mother, aren’t you? You really are! Tell me, please!”. She is
about to say something but then notices that Quentin is watching them
from the doorway…

Daniel says to Alexis, “You didn’t answer my question”. Alexis
looks over and Quentin and remarks, “He had a nightmare, but he’s all
right now”. Daniel says, “You’re not going to answer my question, are
you?” Alexis replies, “I’m your Aunt Alexis”. She continues, “I think
the best thing for us to do is straighten up your bed and get you back to
sleep”. She fluffs up his pillow, humming “Hush little baby don’t you
cry” as she does so. Noticing a strange look on Daniel and Quentin’s
faces, she asks, “What’s wrong?” Daniel explains, “You did that exactly
like my mother!” Alexis points out, “Straightening up a bed and fluffing
up a pillow is pretty universal”. Daniel says, “No, not that. The tune
you were humming. My mother used to hum the exact tune when you fluffed
my pillow”. Alexis explains, “We got that from your grandmother. She
used to hum this tune when she made a bed, and we both picked it up
from her”. Daniel says, “I understand”. She tells him, “I know how
much you wish you mother were alive, but you must learn to face life
the way it is”.
At the Cottage, Bruno is with a middle aged woman with dark hair.
She is Hannah Stokes, aunt to Angelique and Alexis. The cottage is
darkened, and she is reading some sort of astrological chart.
Bruno asks, “What do you see?” Hannah replies, “The stars are in
turmoil….Some alien force is working against you”. Bruno asks,
“Is this alien force of the spirit world?” Hannah replies, “Yes,
and I can anticipate your next question. You want to know if the
spirit is that of Angelique, don’t you?” Bruno replies, “I swear,
that woman at Collinwood is Angelique, but I haven’t got proof”.
Hannah tells him, “I’m afraid I can’t be of help today, but tomorrow I
may have another tale to tell. I will come again, and you will know
which of my nieces is at Collinwood, Alexis or Angelique”.
Quentin and Alexis are in the drawing room. Alexis is pruning
a potted plant. Alexis is saying, “It will take awhile for Daniel
to get to know me…what’s wrong?” Quentin lies, “Nothing”, but
Alexis says, “I know what you thinking. I’m pruning this plant,
exactly as you’ve seen Angelique doing many times. You can blame
that on our mother again. She taught us care for plants and
flowers, so every time we see one, we care for it and prune it”.
She asks, “What should I do with the dead leaves?” Quentin replies,
“I don’t care”. Alexis replies, “In that case, I think I’ll throw
them into the fire” and does so. Quentin remarks, “As a matter of
fact, that’s what she always did with them”.
At the cottage, Bruno says, “I must find outt if Alexis is
Angelique, but how?” Hannah refuses to elaborate on what she is
going to do and leaves. Bruno plays “Ode to Angelique” on the
Daniel is lying awake in bed. Quentin comes in and asks, “You
still awake?” Daniel replies, “Yes, I just can’t sleep. I just
keep going over, and over it in my mind. If you hadn’t come when
you did, things would be different”. Quentin asks, “How?” David
explains, “When I asked her if she was my mother, she was just
about to answer, and I know the answer would have been yes!”
The next day, Hannah Stokes comes visiting at Collinwood.
She complains to Daniel, “You never come to visit your great Aunt.
Why?” Daniel replies, “I don’t know why”, but Hannah says, “I know
why. Because your father doesn’t want you to”. Daniel asks, “You
came to see Aunt Alexis, didn’t you?” He takes Hannah’s coat for
her and seeing her pack of Tarot cards sticking out of a pocket,
takes them asks, “Oh, you’ve brought these. Can you read the them
for me like you used to?”, but then hears a stern voice say, “Put
those back where they belong!” He looks and sees Alexis coming down
the stairs. Daniel puts the cards back into Hannah’s pocket.
Alexis comes down the stairs and the two women greet one another – rather
coldly. Alexis tells Daniel, “Take your aunt’s coat and hang it up”.
Daniel obediently does so. The two women go into the drawing roomto talk.
Daniel swipes the Tarot Cards from Hannah’s coat and runs upstairs with
In the drawing room, Hannah is saying to Alexis, “I can’t
believe how good you look after all this”. Alexis replies, “The
death came as quite a surprise to me.” Hannah asks, “Is that all
you call it? Bruno said something about a seance where the word
‘murder’ was mentioned”. Alexis, upset, turns her back on Hannah
and replies, “I don’t want to discuss it”. Hannah takes advantage of
this to steal Alexis’ handkerchief, which is lying on an end table.
Alexis excuses herself, saying, “I have many things to do today”.
Quentin comes into the room. Hannah tells him, “Please don’t ask
me to stay. I’ve managed to upset Alexis terribly” and leaves.
Quentin asks, “What was that all about?” Alexis replies, “Bruno
sent her”. Quentin asks, “Why?” Alexis replies, “To harass me,
I suppose. He knows I really don’t like her. As soon as she
entered, she started talking about Angelique and the possibility
she was murdered”. Quentin tells her, “I’ll do everything I can
to clear this up as soon as possible”.
In Daniel’s room, Daniel is playing with Hannah’s Tarot cards.
Amy remarks, “You don’t know what they mean!” Daniel insists,
“I do! All it takes is concentration”. Hannah comes into the room,
saying, “I knew this is where the cards would be!” Amy tells her,
“He says he knows how to read them, but he really doesn’t!” Hannah
looks at the cards Daniel had dealt out and a strange look comes
across her face. Daniel asks, “What’s the matter?” Hannah lies,
“Nothing. Nothing at all”. She takes the cards and leaves.
Daniel tells Amy, “I’ll prove to you I know how to read the cards.
I’ll tell you which one scared her. Do you remember the card that
was upside down here? That card is called the Tower of Destruction”.
Hannah is at Bruno’s cottage again. Bruno asks, “Tell me, she is
Angelique, isn’t she?” Hannah pulls out a handkerchief and says,
“We will know in a moment. This handkerchief belongs to Alexis.
With the aid of some herbs and some bone dust we will soon see.
If this handkerchief belongs to one of the undead, it will turn
bright red at the end of my incantation”. She starts chanting,
“Come, death, turn bright red what belongs to you, mark it with
your sign, the sign of blood!” The handkerchief suddenly bursts
into flames and burns up.
Bruno gasps, “It just burned up! What happened?” Hannah
replies, “Some spirit is opposing us and doesn’t want us to know
what we want to know”. She takes out her deck of Tarot cards,
saying, “The cards will usually come to my aid in times like this.
But I must have silence, complete silence”. She starts to deal
the cards. Outside, Quentin has arrived at the cottage and is
eavesdropping. Hannah studies the cards and announces, “She is here!
She is here at Collinwood!” Bruno exclaims, “Then Alexis is
Angelique!”. Quentin, shocked at hearing this, leaves. Hannah
says, “Wait! All I see is that she’s here. I don’t see what form
she’s in. The dead can come back in many forms, sometimes
physical, sometimes not. All we can say is that Angelique is
here. In what form, I cannot say”.
Quentin is returning to Collinwood. Outside the front door he
pauses and thinks to himself, “Alexis is Angelique? That’s not
possible! I don’t believe Hannah’s madness. She can’t be Angelique.
Angelique is dead! But what I just saw. I wonder…”
Inside in the foyer, Amy is talking on the phone, “I don’t want to
stay here anymore.” Quentin, who’s just come in, asks her who she’s
talking to . She tells him it’s her brother Chris. Quentin asks to
talk to him. Amy hands the phone to him. Quentin tells Chris, “She’s
just upset. Let me talk to her”. Quentin asks Amy, “Why do you want
to leave?” Amy replies, “Because of Alexis. Ever since she’s come
here, there’s been so much trouble. Maggie left because of her!”
Quentin tells her, “Let me do something first, then you can decide
if you want to live here or with your brother”.
Quentin is going to Angelique’s room. Just outside the closed
doors, he hears “Ode to Angelique” start playing on the piano, then
a loud woman’s scream. He quickly opens the door to see what’s
wrong. Inside, Alexis is standing there screaming. Seeing Quentin,
she points at the piano and exclaims, “Angelique! She’s here! Her
spirit! It’s here! Look!” The piano is playing all by itself…

Quentin looks into the drawing room and sees a man of about thirty
years of age wearing a gray leisure suit sitting in a chair. Sounding
very surprised, Quentin calls out, “Dameon Edwards! What are you doing
here?”, but Edwards doesn’t reply. Noticing that Edwards has a glazed
expression in his eyes, Quentin goes up to him, calls out, “Dameon?”,
and touches him on the shoulder. Dameon Edwards topples onto the floor.
Quentin quickly goes to the phone, gets the operator and says, “Get me
the Collinsport Hospital! Hurry!”, but when he looks back, he sees the
Edwards is no longer there. He cancels the call, “Oh, forget it, operator”,
then, looking very puzzled, goes off in search of Edwards. The foyer
clock reads 11:15
The clock now reads 11:45. Having searched the house unsuccessfully
for Dameon Edwards, Quentin returns to the drawing room. This time he
is surprised to find a man of about thirty-five dressed in butler’s clothing
straightening things up in the room. He asks, “Trask! Now what are you
doing here? When did you get back?” Trask replies, “Less than half an
hour ago. Didn’t Hoffman get my telegram? I sent her a telegram telling
her that the crisis in my brother’s family is over and that I’d be back”.
Quentin replies, “Hoffman’s not here right now”. Trask asks, “Not
here?” Quentin explains, “Even Hoffman needs some time off. She
needed the rest, so I sent her to visit some friends. The house has
been unsettled lately”. Trask apoligizes, “Sorry Sir, I apoligize for
being away at a time you might have needed me. Mind telling me what’s
been happening?” Quentins asks, “Do you sense any change in the atmosphere
around here?” Trask look puzzled. Quentin continues, “Do you remember
an old family friend named Dameon Edwards?” Trask replies, “Yes. He
visited almost daily for awhile. Then he stopped coming. He hasn’t been
here in a year or so”. Quentin asks, “Would you know what happened to
him?” Trask replies, “No. May I ask you a question. Why do you ask?”
Quentin lies, “Curiousity, just curiousity”.
Amy is outside of Angelique’s room, on her hands and knees looking
for something. She looks up and is surprised to see Dameon Edwards
standing there. She exclaims, “Mr. Edwards! When did you get back
to Collinsport? You’ve been away so long! Where did you go? Every time
I asked, no one had an answer. Could you help me find the stone from
my ring?” Edwards turns to leave. Amy says, “Wait a minute! Do you
know what happened? Angelique died, and Quentin got married again!
Let me tell you about everything…” Suddenly, she notices that Edwards
is gone…
In the drawing room, Trask is saying, “Mrs. Collins left after only
one week?” Quentin replies, “Yes, but she’ll return. And Trask, if
you see Alexis, please don’t say how much she looks like Angelique.
She’s tired of being reminded of it”. Amy comes into the room and
asks, “Have you seen Mr. Edwards”. Quentin asks, “Mr. Edwards?” Amy
replies, “Yes, Mr. Dameon Edwards”. Quentin asks, “Why would I have
seen him?” Amy replies, “Because I just saw him upstairs.” Trask,
who’s holding a glass, his back to them, convulsively breaks it in
shock. Amy explains, “The stone fell out of the ring Chris gave me for
my last birthday and I was looking for it”. Quentin asks, “Tell me
exactly where you saw him”. Amy replies, “Outside Angelique’s room. He
wouldn’t talk to me or help me or anything.” Quentin asks, “Which way did
he go?” She tells him, “I’m not sure. He was acting strangely.” Quentin
tells her, “Stay here with Trask”. Amy asks, “Where are you going?”
He replies, “To find Mr. Edwards. He’s probably looking for me, so
I’d better find out what he wants” and leaves. Trask asks Amy, “Are you
sure it was Mr. Edwards you saw?” Amy replies, “Of course I’m sure. Why?”
Trask replies, “It’s just that we haven’t seen Mr. Edwards in such a long
time. I wasn’t expecting him, that’s all”
Quentin is outside Angelique’s room. He knocks on the door. There
is no answer. He opens the door and goes inside. He is shocked to
see Dameon Edwards standing there, exclaiming, “Edwards! What do you
want here? Why have you come back?” Edwards vanishes. Quentin
goes up the spot where he was standing and finds the floor covered
with splashes of blood. He wonders, “Blood! But why? And downstairs,
blood on that picture of Bruno. What does it all mean? Murder? Is
that what you’re trying to tell me, Dameon?”
In the drawing room, Trask asks Amy, “Is it true? Does Alexis look
that much like her sister?”, but Amy replies, “I’d rather not talk about
it. I’m starting to get scared again. So many things have happened
here lately”. Trask asks, “Things? What things?”, but before Amy can
answer, Quentin returns. Amy asks, “Did you find Mr. Edwards?” Quentin
replies, “No”, then tells her, “I’ve decided to let you stay at the
Old House with Carolyn and Mr. Loomis”. Amy asks, “Why?” Quentin replies,
“You said you wanted to spend some time away from Collinwood, didn’t you?”
Amy points out, “But I said I wanted to stay with Chris!” Quentin explains,
“I called Chris and he said he’d be out of town for a few days”. Amy
asks, “Are you sure something isn’t wrong?” Quentin lies, “Nothing’s
wrong! Now go up and get packed!” Amy runs upstairs. Quentin tells
Trask, “Something IS wrong. I saw Dameon Edwards twice today, and both
times he just vanished”. Trask gasps, “Vanished, Sir?!” Quentin tells
him, “Go up and stay with Amy, and don’t let her out of your sight!”
Bruno is in the cottage playing “Ode to Angelique” on the piano.
Quentin comes in. Bruno complains, “Don’t you believe in knocking on
another man’s door before entering?” Quentin replies, “Sorry, I forgot
the formalities. I believe I have some important information you’d be
very interested in”. Bruno replies, “I doubt I could be that interested
in anything you have to say to me”. Quentin coyly says, “Oh, I think
you’ll be intrested in what I have to say. I just saw an old friend
of yours tonignt – Dameon Edwards”. A look of shock appears on Bruno’s
face and he stammers, “You, uh, saw Dameon Edwards?” Quentin replies,
“Twice”. Bruno remarks, “Well, I hope you gave him my regards. Did
he say where he’s been the past year?” Quentin replies, “No”. Bruno
remarks, “Well, he’s never been very talkative”. Quentin replies, “And
he’s even less so now. He’s dead. What I saw was a ghost.” Bruno says,
“Quentin, you’ve never been supersitious before. Hannah Stokes must be
getting to you.” Quentin continues, “You knew he was dead, didn’t you?”
Bruno says, “All I know is that he stopped coming here about a year ago”.
Quentin continues, “Dameon’s spirit is trying to tell us something,
I don’t know what it is, but I’m going to find out!” Bruno says, “I don’t
believe in ghosts. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m entertaining someone
special, namely, myself”. Quentin replies, “Say what you want, but
you can’t take away that expression on your face when I told you I saw
Dameon Edwards!” and leaves.
At Collinwood, Trask and Amy are coming down the stairs, Trask carrying
Amy’s blue suitcase. Trask suddenly remembers something and tells Amy,
“Miss Amy, would you sit in the drawing room please while I go upstairs
to get the car keys?” Amy goes and sits in the drawing room while Trask
goes back upstairs. Amy feels a draft, so she goes and closes the drawing
room window. When she turns back around, she is surprised to see Dameon
Edwards standing in the room. She exclaims, “Mr. Edwards! So you didn’t
go after all! Quentin looked for you but he couldn’t find you. What do
you want to talk to him about? Quentin’s very busy. He has lots of
worries, but I’m sure he’ll want to talk to you”. Dameon Edwards doesn’t
respond. Amy asks, “What’s wrong? Why won’t you say anything?” Edwards
gesturs for her to follow him, then walks out of the drawing room. Amy
follows. Edwards heads for the door under the stairs. Amy asks, “Where
are you going? Is this a game like you used to play with Daniel and me?”
Edwards gestures for her to follow and goes into the door under the stairs.
Amy says, “Wait! I don’t want to lose you like before!” and follows.
Seconds later, Quentin returns through the front doors. He sees Amy’s
suitcase in the foyer. He goes into the drawing room to find her, but
finds it empty. Trask comes back down and tells Quentin, “I had to
go get the car keys. I can take Miss Amy into town now if you’d like,
Sir”. Quentin asks, “Where is Amy?” Trask replies, “I left her in the
drawing room”. Quentin growls, “She’s NOT in the drawing room!” Trask
says, “But I left her there, Sir”. Quentin angrily says, “You left her
in there alone!? I told you to stay with her!” Trask apoligizes, “I
just went upstairs to get the car keys, Sir”. Quentin orders, “Go
upstairs and look for her! I’ll search down here!” Trask goes upstairs.
Quentin goes into the door under the stairs.
Dameon goes down into a dusty room in the basement. Amy follows…
Quentin comes back into the foyer. Trask comes back down and tells
him, “She wasn’t up there”. Quentin growls, “I told you not to leave
her alone!” Trask says, “She’s got to be in the house somewhere. I’ll
go upstairs and search further”. Quenting mutters, “Damn it!”*
Dameon Edwards walks up to a wall in the basement. Amy, following
him, asks, “Where are we going? I don’t know if I want to go any further”.
Dameon Edwards walks into the wall and vanishes. Amy screams…

*This was considered obscene in 1970, so they cut the sound here.
But it’s easy to read his lips…

Quentin and Trask are still searching for Amy. In the drawing room,
Quentin opens the window and looks outside. Trasks asks, “Would you
like me to search the grounds, Sir?” Quentin replies, “No, search
the attic.” They both go out into the foyer. Trask is about to
go upstairs when they notice the knob of the door under the stairs
turning. The door opens…and Amy steps into the foyer. Quentin exclaims,
“Amy! Where did you go? Why did you leave the drawing room?” Amy replies,
“To play a game.” Quentin asks, “What kind of game?” Amy replies, “We
always used to play games, but they never used to scare me!” Quentin
says, “Let’s go into the drawing room”. They take Amy into the drawing
room. Amy explains, “Dameon Edwards, I saw him again! He stood there
in the doorway, and he asked me to follow him…” She describes how she
followed him down into a room in the basement and how he walked into
a wall and vanished. Quentin asks, “Vanished?” Amy replies, “Yes,
he went through the wall! He can’t really go through walls! He
can’t!” Quentin tries to reassure her, “You don’t have to be afraid.
I’d like you to take me to that room. If you’re afraid, you don’t
have to, but please?” Amy replies, “All right, if your really want
me to”. Trask asks, “Wan’t me to come along, Sir?” Quentin replies,
“No, that won’t be necessary”. Quentin and Amy go downstairs. Trask
waits a moment, then leaves through the front door, a sneaky expression
on his face.
Amy and Quentin are in the basement. Quentin asks, “Is this the
room?” Amy replies that it is. Quentin asks, “Now where is that
wall where he disappeared?” Amy points the wall out to him. Quentin
goes to the wall and taps on it in several places. He remarks, “Solid
enough. Are you sure he walked through this wall?” Amy replies, “Yes!
It was terrible!” Quentin inspects the wall for secret latches but
doesn’t find anything. Amy begs, “Please, Quentin, I don’t want to
stay here any longer! How can he walk through walls! What kind of
man is he? I hope I never see Dameon Edwards again!” Quentin takes
her back upstairs.
Trask is at Bruno’s cottage, saying, “I’m telling you, Amy saw him!
Quentin saw him! If you were wise, you’d leave Collinsport for
awhile! If the ghost of Dameon Edwards is really here, you’re not
safe here!” Bruno asks, “Why?” Trask replies, “You know very well
why! You could be in great danger!” Bruno asks, “Wouldn’t someone
else be in great danger as well? How much is Quentin paying you to
get me out of here?” He accuses of Trask of conspiring with Quentin
to concoct the ghost story to frighten him away. Trask asks, “How
can you say that?!” Bruno replies, “Because you’d do anything for
a buck. You’re selling, but I’m not buying, and you can tell that to
your master at Collinwood!” Trask insists, “There IS a ghost of
Dameon Edwards!”, but Bruno replies, “There is no ghost!” The phone
rings. Bruno lets it ring. Trask asks, “Aren’t you going to answer
it?” Bruno replies, “Whoever it is, I’m not interested”. Trask
says, “It might be important”. Bruno tells him, “I could care less.
Why don’t you answer it?” Trask answers the phone and gasps, “It’s
him! It’s Dameon Edwards! He says it’s just a matter of time!”
Trask asks, “Who is this? Hello? Hello?”, then tells Bruno, “He
hung up, but I know who it was! It was Dameon Edwards!” Bruno shouts,
“It was not Dameon! Stop it!” Trask insists, “It WAS Dameon! I’d
know that voice anywhere! He said it was only a matter of time! What
are we going to do?” Bruno replies, “First, you’re going to stop
being hysterical, then we’re going to Quentin Collins and put a stop
to this”. Trask insists, “It was Dameon!”, but Bruno says, “Someone’s
just trying to shake us up, someone’s trying to break us, but we’re
not going to let them do it! We’re going to stop Quentin or whoever
it is! Now get out of here!” Trask replies, “When you find out I’m
telling you the truth, I hope it’s not too late” and leaves. The
telephone rings again. This time, Bruno answers it and hears someone
says, “It’s just a matter of time! Just a matter of time!” Bruno
asks, “Who is this?”, but the voice just repeats, “It’s just a matter
of time! Just a matter of time!”
Sabrina is with Cyrus at the lab. Sabrina tells Cyrus, “I was
hoping you’d ask me to come.” Cyrus replies, “It’s going to be dull.
It’ll be business all the time I’m there. I’m just going to see some old
colleagues to discuss my experiment and go over some data with them.
I’m only going to be gone for a few days at the very most”. Sabrina
says, “I’ll miss you”. As they are talking, Sabrina happens to walk
over to the desk and sees the IOU. She asks, “John Yaeger? Who’s
John Yaeger and why does he owe you $100? What does this mean?”
Cyrus replies, “Exactly what it looks like. John Yaeger owes me
$100.” Sabrina asks, “But who’s John Yaeger? I’ve never heard you
mention him before”. Cyrus explains, “An old friend, the kind of friend
who only looks you up when he needs money. Thank you for reminding me
that John Yaeger owes me a lot of money!”
At Bruno’s cottage, the phone rings again. This time, Bruno unplugs
the phone jack from the wall instead of answering it. Suddenly, the
piano starts to play “Ode to Angelique” all by itself. Bruno is
terrified. He screams, “No! No! I don’t believe it! Go away, Dameon!
Go back to your grave! Go back to where you belong!” and slams the
piano key cover down. The playing stops, but when Bruno looks up,
standing there is Dameon Edwards. Bruno exclaims, “Dameon! No! No!
Dameon, no!”, runs to the door, opens it and flees.
Sabrina is cleaning things up at the lab. Cyrus comes back down
holding a flask with some red liquid in it, and a beaker with some
white powder in it. He places them on a shelf and tells Sabrina,
“It’s very late. Why don’t you let me finish up?” Sabrina says,
“I don’t understand. I’m sure you have enough here to do without
having to clean up”. Cyrus replies, “No, it’ll help me relax”.
Sabrina asks, “Are you trying to get rid of me?” Cyrus replies,
“Yes. I want you to go home. You’ve been working too hard”.
There’s a knock at the basement door. Cyrus opens it. Bruno
comes in. Bruno, sounding hysterical, begs, “Cyrus! I’ve got
to talk to you! Can I talk to you alone, for just a minute?”
Cyrus replies, “I guess so. Sabrina was just about to leave. You
wouldn’t mind, would you, Sabrina?” Sabrina replies, “I’ll try not to”.
Cyrus helps her on with her coat and she leaves. Bruno begs, “Cyrus,
You’ve got to let me stay here!” Cyrus says, “I don’t understand”.
Bruno continues, “I can’t explain! You’ve got to trust me! Just
let me stay here! I have no other place to go!” Cyrus tells him,
“I’m sorry Bruno, but that’s impossible.” Bruno continues to beg,
“There’s no other place I can go, Cyrus! Please! Just for a little
while!” Cyrus explains, “Bruno, I can’t let anyone stay here while
I’m working on this experiment”. Bruno promises, “I won’t come down
here. I’ll stay upstairs. I won’t come anywhere near the lab. Please,
Cyrus, you’re my last chance!” Cyrus finally gives in, “All right, but
don’t come into the lab at any time”. Bruno promise to stay upstairs.
Cyrus takes him upstairs.
Cyrus comes back down and pours some of the red liquid from the flask
into the small beaker with the powder. The liquid in the beaker turns
pink starts to foam and steam. Cyrus, in a very noble tone, says,

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

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

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

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

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

then says, “The best is standing right here, and his name is John
Yaeger!” He looks over at an armoire and says, “Well, Cyrus might
have forgotten where the key is, but Yaeger remembers!” He gets
a key, unlocks the armoire, and looks at himself in a mirror attached
to the inside of the door. With satisfaction, he notes, “No clear,
honest eyes here! The milk of human kindness doesn’t flow through
these veins!” He takes a nice suit out, remarking, “Oh, Yaeger!
You’ve got style! You’ve go flair! Too bad they never caught the
man who broke into that clothing store! John Yaeger! This night
belongs to you!”
Trask returns to Collinwood, bolting the door after himself. Alexis
is coming down the stairs. She asks, “Who are you? What are you doing
here?” Trask looks at her and at first, shocked by her resemblance to
Angelique, stands there saying nothing, but finally manages to say, “Trask,
Madame, the butler. I’ve been away”. Alexis says, “Yes, of course. Did
Mr. Collins tell you about me?” Trask replies, “Yes, you are Alexis,
the first Mrs. Collins twin sister”. She tells him, “I’m looking for
Mr. Collins. Do you know where he is?” Trask replies, “Taking Miss
Amy to the Old House to stay with Carolyn and Willie Loomis”. Alexis
remarks, “So, he’s taken Hannah Stokes’ advice.” She then asks, “Trask,
is it your habit to bolt the door when Mr. Collins is out?” Trask
says, “I can’t talk about it”. Alexis asks, “Did something happen
while I was gone?” Trask at first remains silent, but then blurts out,
“Mr. Collins has go to close the house and we’ve all must leave!”
There’s a knock at the door. Alexis orders Trask to open it. Trask
at first refuses, saying, “No, what if it’s…”, then changes his mind
and opens the door. It’s Quentin. Alexis asks, “What’s happened?
You’ve got to tell me!” Trask again says, “You’ve got to close the
house!”, but Quentin replies emphatically, “I’m NOT going to close
the house!”. He picks up the telephone. Trask asks, “Who are you
calling? The police?” Quentin replies, “No, Cyrus Longworth. He
might know what to do”.
The phone in Cyrus’ lab rings. Yaeger remarks, “Someone’s looking
for Dr. Longworth! Too bad he’s not here! His friends will just have
to do without him!” The phone finally stops ringing. Yaeger remarks,
“That’s better”. He opens a safe hidden behind a painting, takes out
a bottle of dark liquid labelled, “DO NOT TOUCH” and remarks, “This is
here if I need it”, and puts it back into the safe. He then says,
“But there’s something else I need”. He goes to the armoire, takes
out a walking stick and exclaims, “Of course! I wouldn’t want to go
anywhere without you, would I?” He presses a button on the cane and
a long knife blade comes out of the tip…
At the Eagle, a barmaid named Buffie Harrington is emptying an
ashtray. Some fisherman is bothering her, trying to ask her for a date.
Buffy tells him, “There’s no use hanging around. I’m not going to go
out with you. Why don’t you go somewhere else?” The man replies,
“I like this place. It’s nice and peaceful here”. Buffie again asks
him to leave. The man asks, “You going to make me?” Yaeger, who’s
just come in, says, “You’ll do with the lady wants without being
forced to”. Buffie sees Yaeger and says, “You again! I don’t want
any fighting like last time!” Yaeger goes up to the man and asks,
“You were just about to leave, weren’t you?” The man replies, “No”.
Yaeger says, “That’s strange. I had the distinct impression you
were” and attacks the man. They fight for awhile, destroying a lot
of stuff in the process. Finally, Yaeger gets the upper hand and,
grabbing the man in a hammerlock, throws him out the door, saying,
“Don’t come back! At least not when I’m here!” The man vows, “I’ll
get you for this!” Yaeger apologizes to Buffy for what happened.
Buffie moans, “Look at all the damage you did! Who’s going to pay for
it?” Yaeger replies, “I am”, but Buffie continues, “I’m going to get
fired for this!”. Yaeger tells her, “I said I’m going to pay for it”.
Buffie tells him she doesn’t believe him, so he tells her, “I’ll be
back in a very little while with a very generous check.”
At Collinwood, Quentin is showing Trask a drawer in a bureau in
the drawing room, saying, “This drawer opened by itself. Inside was
a picture of Bruno on some music he had written. It was blood soaked.
Later, the drawer was empty. No one could have emptied it, no ordinary
person. Now tell me everything you know”. Trask replies, “I don’t
know anything. I was away”. Quentin replies, “You weren’t away the
day Dameon Edwards stopped coming. What does Bruno know about Dameon
Edwards’ murder?” Trask asks, “Murder?!” Quentin continues, “I have
reason to believe Dameon Edwards was murdered, and that Bruno had
something to do with it, and that you do too”. Trask vehemently denies
this. Quentin asks, “Then why did you react the way you did when I
said I saw Dameon Edwards? Why did you rush to Bruno’s cottage? Now
tell me, what do you know about the murder of Dameon Edwards? Why
did he take Amy to that room in the cellar?” Trask denies knowing
anything. Quentin warns him against trying to leave Collinwood until
he solves the murder, saying he’ll track him down if he does. Quentin
heads for the door. Trask asks, “Where are you going?” Quentin replies,
“To find Cyrus Longworth. Maybe he can get to the bottom of this”.
John Yaeger returns to the Eagle and gives a check to Buffie Harrington,
saying, “I think this will cover all the damages”. Buffie looks at the
check and asks, “What is this? Some kind of joke? Look at the signature
on the check. It says ‘Cyrus Longworth’. I used to work at Collinwood
and I know Cyrus Longworth, and you’re not him”. Yaeger tells her that
Cyrus is a good friend of his and gave him the check. He pretends to
be offended that she thought he was a liar and a forger. He gives her
one warning, “You must promise not to say who gave you this check. I
don’t think Dr. Longworth would want his name mixed up with the events
of tonight”. Buffie promises not to tell. Yaeger caresses her with the
cane and remarks, “Good. I like people who listen to me. People who
don’t, well, their fate is best left forgotten”.
The man Yaeger fought with earlier is walking down an alley. He
takes a pack of cigarettes out of his pocket and is about to get
a smoke when he hears a voice says, “So, you’re going to get me, are
you?” He looks up and sees Yaeger there and tells him, “I’m warning
you!” Yaeger replies, “I don’t like warnings. They sound too much like
threats” and starts to beat the man viciously with his cane. He hears
someone coming and runs off. Quentin finds the injured man. The man
growls, “I’ll get him! I swear I will!”, but Quentin tells him, “I’d
better take you into the Eagle”.
Inside the Eagle, Quentin asks the man, “Do you know who he is?”
The man gestures towards Buffy and says, “No, but she does”. Buffie
looks at him and asks, “Have you been fighting again?” Quentin tells
her, “You’d better get him a drink”, but the man angrily says, “I’ll
get him!” and leaves. Quentin asks Buffy about the attacker. Buffie
tells him, “I don’t know his name, but there is someone who might
know. That someone is a friend of yours. I thought I’d tell you
instead of the police because you were so nice to me when I worked
at Collinwood.” She shows him the check with Cyrus’ signature on it,
remarking, “It’s probably a forgery”. Quentin agrees, “Yes, it probably
is” and leaves. Seconds later, Yaeger comes into the bar and tells
Buffie he’s heard the whole thing. He complains, “I thought you understood
that you were not to tell anyone where you got that check. Pity. Now
I’ll have to teach you to understand”. He grabs her by the throat and
starts to strangle her.

Buffy screams, “No! No! Please don’t!” Yaeger releases her from
the chokehold, but then grabs her arm in a hammerlock. Buffie screams,
“Let go!” Yaeger asks, “Why? You’re like all the others! You have
to be trained!” Buffie replies, “You’re hurting me!” Yaeger says, “Only
a little. Until you do what I say!” Buffie replies, “Yes! Yes!”
Yaeger lets her go and remarks, “Well, now, you’ve proven you learn
quickly”. Buffie exclaims, “You’re insane!” Yaeger replies, “No,
I know how to live, how to make people do what I want. You don’t really
want to live the way you are, do you?” She asks, “What do you mean?”
He tells her, “I want to give you money, furs, riches, everything!”
He tells her, “I’ll give you time to think things over. Soon,
you won’t be able to wait for me to come through that door!”
Quentin is with Sabrina at the lab. Quentin asks Sabrina, “Where’s
Cyrus. His car’s gone”. Sabrina asks, “Is something wrong?” Quentin
tells her about he check, saying he thinks it’s a forgery. Sabrina tells
him, “I can tell. I balanced Cyrus’ checkbook for him only yesterday.
He’s the only scientist in the world who can’t subtract”. She takes a
look a the checkbook and announces, “Two checks are missing. What is
this man like?” Quentin replies, “A rough man. The barmaid who saw
him said he wasn’t the type of guy Cyrus would associate with”.
Sabrina wonders, “Wait a minute. Maybe it was John Yaeger. But no
friend of Cyrus would come here and steal his checks. Unless something’s
happened to Cyrus! Maybe this John Yaeger has Cyrus!” Quentin promises,
“If he does, I’ll find him for you, I promise!”
Buffie is in her apartment. There’s a knock at the door. At first
she pauses, fearful it might be Yaeger, but then finally calls out,
“Who is it?” A voice replies, “Mrs. DuVall”. Mrs. DuVall comes in
and asks “Don’t you have something for me?” Buffie replies, “Here’s
the rent for this month” and gives her a check. Mrs. Duvall says
to Buffie, “Thank you for helping me rent out my four best rooms. I’m
glad to see you’re using your brains.” Buffie, puzzled, asks, “How am
I using my brains?” Mrs. DuVall replies, “You’re the one who recommended
my place to that gentleman”. Buffie asks, “What gentleman?” A voice
interrupts, “This gentleman!”. Buffie looks and sees that it’s John
Yaeger who’s just entered the room. Yaeger says, “Well, Mrs. DuVall,
you are one admirable landlady. I hope you don’t mind if I have some
workmen come up and work on your rooms”. The landlady seems very
happy to get some free remodelling, saying, “I think you’re a lesson to
us all”. Yaeger remarks, “Yes, especially to Miss Harrington. Maybe
she’ll learn to appreciate beauty”. He takes a painting off the wall
and suggests it be destroyed. Buffie, not liking the prospect of living
so close to Yaeger, ask Mrs. Duvall for her rent check back, but Mrs.
DuVall refuses, saying, “As far as I’m concerned, you’re paid for
another month”. Yaeger asks Mrs. DuVall to go up and clean his rooms.
She leaves. Yaeger asks Buffie, “You leaving?” Buffie replies, “Yes”.
Yaeger tells her, “I suggest you don’t. I think you really want to
live the way I do. I think you want the excitement. Do you really
want to leave?” Buffie admits, “I do, and I don’t”. The telephone
rings. Buffie answers. It’s Quentin. Buffie tells him, “I can’t
talk now…I’m washing my hair…” Quentin assures her, “It won’t
take long. I just wanted to see if you’ve seen that man from last
night.” Buffie lies that she hasn’t. Quentin continues, “I’m very
worried about Cyrus Longworth.” Buffie says, “I don’t know anything
about him”. Quentin tells her, “This is very important…”, but
Buffie insists, “I don’t know anything about the man”. After she
hangs up, she moans to Yaeger, “I like him, and you made me lie to
him! I hate you!” Yaeger remarks, “Not for long!”
Quentin is with Sabrina at the lab. Sabrina is telling him, “Cyrus
ALWAYS stays at the same hotel. They say he never made a reservation.”
Quentin suggests, “Maybe he’s staying with friends”, but Sabrina says,
“No, he’s never done that before. He’s very methodical. You promised
to find him!” Quentin replies, “I think two people know where he is.
I can find one of them, at least”.
Buffy is in her room packing. With her is the man Yaeger threw
out if the Eagle. The man asks, “Why are you going away?” Buffie
replies, “Don’t ask, Steve.” She continues packing, then stops and
moans, “Oh, who am I kidding. I only have $13.42 and I’d just end
up in Worchester doing the same thing again”. Steve asks, “It’s that
guy, isn’t it?” Buffie replies, “Just go away!”. Steve vows, “I’ll
get him!” Buffie tells him, “No you won’t”. Steve asks, “You make it
sound like he’s some kind of Superman”. Buffie replies, “Maybe he is.
I don’t think you should try to find out. Get out of here!”
Steve leaves Buffie’s apartment building. From the shadows,
John Yaeger emerges and quietly follows him…
Steve is walking along the docks. Yaeger is still following him.
Finally, Yaeger confronts Steve and remarks, “Pleasant evening, isn’t
it?” Steve growls, “You’re the reason she sent me away!” Yaeger
replies, “Yes, I can take credit for that”. They start to fight.
Yaeger pops the knife out of his cane, but Steve manages to kick it
out of his hands and announces, “Now we’re even!”, but Yaeger says,
“I don’t think so!”, grabs Steve and starts to strangle him. Steve
screams, “Help! Help!” and immediately hears police whistles.
Not having had any luck by phone, Quentin goes to question Buffie
in person. At first she denies having seen Yaeger, but Quentin
continues to pressure her and she finally admits she has, but that
he couldn’t have kidnappend anyone, else he wouldn’t have so much
time to bother her.
At the lab, the sound of police whistles is heard outside.
Yaeger enter the lab through the basement door thinking to himself,
“The antidote! I must have it! The police will track me here! I
must be Cyrus Longworth again!” He opens the safe and is about to
get the antidote when he hears a voice saying, “Yaeger!”. He turns
and sees that it’s Quentin Collins. Quentin says, “So, you’re Yaeger”.
Yaeger replies, “At your service, Sir”. Quentin asks, “Where’s Cyrus
Longworth?” Yaeger replies, “I was about to ask you the same question”.
Quentin says, “Don’t lie to me.” Yaeger replies, “You’re a gentleman.
I wouldn’t lie to a gentleman”. Quentin continues, “Where is he?
You know!” He looks over and sees the open save. Yaeger says, “Oh,
I suppose you’re going to accuse me of being a burglar. I can explain.
Cyrus gave me the combination to that safe so I could store some valuables
there”. Quentin again asks, “Where is he?” Yaeger remarks, “You keep
asking that.” Quentin replies, “I’m going to keep asking until
I find out, or until Cyrus Longworth walks down those stairs!”

Yaeger remarks, “You’re a persistent man, Mr. Collins, and a good
friend to Cyrus Longworth”. Quentin asks, “And what are you to him?”
Yaeger replies, “We’ve only been friends for a short while. You’ll
have to ask him to tell you about that”. Quentin points out, “But I
don’t know where he is”. Yaeger says, “Out of town”. Quentin reminds
him, “You gave that girl a check. It was dated yesterday, the day
AFTER Cyrus was supposed to have left town. How do you explain that?”
Yaeger just says, “I don’t owe you any explanation”. Quentin counters,
“Maybe you’d like to explain to the police”. Yaeger replies, “Go ahead.
You’ll just be making a fool of yourself”. As Quentin turns to get the
phone, Yaeger quickly grabs the bottle of antidote and runs out the
basement door, locking it. Quenting goes and tries to open the door
but finds it locked. He demands, “Open this door!” Sabrina, having
heard the commotion, comes down into the lab asking, “What’s wrong?”
Quentin asks, “Do you have the key to this door?” Sabrina replies,
“Yes”. Quentin tells her, “Get it! Hurry!” She gives him the key
and he opens the door, but Yaeger is gone. Quentin remarks, “He’s
gone”. Sabrina asks, “What happened?” Quentin replies, “That man we
talked about the other day..” Sabrina asks, “John Yaeger?” Quentin
replies, “When I got here, he was here.” Sabrina asks, “How did he
get in?” Quentin replies, “He had a key”. Sabrina says, “Cyrus
would never give anyone a key!” Quentin points out, “The fact that
he had a key doesn’t man Cyrus gave it to him”. Sabrina asks, “What
do you mean?” Quentin replies, “Now that I’ve met this man, I’m
as worried about Cyrus as you are. Maybe he has Cyrus”. Sabrina says,
“Then we should call the police”, but Quentin points out, “We have no
proof he did anything”. At that moment, Cyrus comes walking down the
stairs. Quentin says, “Cyrus, we’ve been very worried about you”.
Cyrus asks, “Why?” Sabrina tells him, “I tried to call you at the
hotel, but they say you were never there”. Cyrus explains, “We changed
our plans and stayed at a friend’s house in Portland.” Quentin asks,
“You’ve been in Portland since the night before last?” Cyrus replies,
“Yes”. Quentin asks, “Cyrus, are you acquainted with a man named
John Yaeger?” Cyrus replies, “Yes, why?” Quentin tells him that
he found Yaeger in the lab, that he had let himself in with a key.
Cyrus tells him, “Yes, I gave it to him”. Sabrina exclaims in
disbelief, “You gave it to him?!” Cyrus asks, “Why are you so surprised?”
Quentin says, “You don’t mean to say that man is a friend of yours!”
Cyrus replies, “No, but his personality traits make him an ideal subject”.
Quentin tells him about the check. Cyrus explains, “I gave it to him
the day before and post dated it”. Quentin remarks, “I stil find it
difficult to believe you could associate with such a man, even just
professionally. Cyrus, what hold does this man have on you?” Cyrus
replies, “I don’t know what you mean”. Quentin spells it out, “Are
you being blackmailed by John Yaeger?” Cyrus replies, “Of course not!
My relation with him is only professional! There’s nothing to worry
about! I can end my relationship with John Yaeger any time I want!”
Quentin, not believing this, says, “If I’m right about John Yaeger,
feel free to call me at any time” and leaves.
With Quentin gone, Sabrina says, “Cyrus, now that we’re alone,
I hope you can tell me what really happened here after I left that
other night”. Cyrus replies, “For the last time, we went to
Portland to see a colleague. We conducted an experiment, and I
got back early because the experiment failed.” Sabrina remarks,
“I’m sorry to hear that”. Cyrus replies, “Sometimes even failure
is rewarding in a way”. Sabrina asks, “What do you mean?” Cyrus
replies, “Something happened, something I must face up to soon”.
Sabrina asks, “What?” Cyrus replies, “I can’t tell you until my
experiments are complete”. Sabrina asks, “What about this man Yaeger?”
Cyrus asks, “What about him? I think I can handle Yaeger!” Sabrina
says, “Whatever you say”. Cyrus says, “Sorry for snapping. You know
how I feel about my professional life”. He warns her, “He’ll be back
here. I suggest you have nothing to do with him!” Bruno comes down
and says, “Cyrus! I’ve got to talk to you – alone! It’s very important!’
Sabrina leaves.
Bruno tells Cyrus, “I need your help! You remember Dameon Edwards,
don’t you?” Cyrus replies, “Yes, he was Angelique’s friend. Where did
he go to?” Bruno replies, “He didn’t go anywhere! He’s dead, and
his ghost has come back to haunt me!” Cyrus asks, “Why? Could it be
you had something to do with his death?” Bruno replies, “No! You
know about these things! You know how to exorcise ghosts!” Cyrus
replies, “You have no guarantee I would succeed”. Bruno begs,
“You’ve got to try!” Cyrus says, “Give me some time to think it
over”. Bruno tells him, “All right. I’ll be waiting upstairs
for you”.
Quentin returns to Collinwood, where he is greeted by Alexis,
“Quentin, I’m glad you’re back!” Quentin asks, “Has something
happened?” Alexis replies, “No, it’s just this house!” Quentin
asks, “There hasn’t been any more incidents?” Alexis replies, “No.
But it’s so quiet, like the calm before the storm. I feel as if
we were all doomed!”
Bruno is in a bedroom above the lab waiting for Cyrus. He nervously
looks around, then takes out a cigarette. He finds he has no matches,
so he goes to a dresser and gets some. At the dresser, he sees Dameon
Edwards’ reflecting in the mirror laughing at him. The image disappears.
Bruno looks and sees that there is a fire in the room…
Bruno shouts, “Cyrus! Cyrus! Help me! Somebody help me! The
room’s on fire!” Cyrus breaks down the door to get in. Seeing the
fire, he rips some curtains down from a window in the hallway and
comes in and puts out the fire. He asks Bruno, “How did this happen?”
Bruno replies, “He started the fire! He’s trying to kill me!” Cyrus
tells him, “Let’s go downstairs for a drink. You need one!”
At Collinwood, Quentin and Alexis are having drinks. Quentin asks,
“Feeling better now?” Alexis replies, “Yes”. Quentin suggests,
“Maybe it would be better for you to go stay in town for a few days”,
but Alexis replies, “No, I don’t I don’t think it would be good to
run from whatever’s plaguing this house. I think we should stay
and fight it. Any word about Maggie?” Quentin says, “No, I’m going
to call her again”. They look at each other passionately and look
like they’re about to kiss, but Alexis announces, “I think I’ll go
upstairs. I feel better with you in the house.”. Quentinr replies,
“Good night. I’ll be here if you need anything”.
At the lab, Bruno moans, “It’s no use, Cyrus! There’s nothing
you can do to help me!” Cyrus asks, “Why do you say that?” Bruno
answers, “I asked you for a place to stay because I thought I’d be
safe here, but if the spirit can follow me here, I’m not safe
anywhere!” Cyrus reminds him, “But a ghost can be exorcised”.
Bruno replies, “I’m not sure it can. I know why the ghost is back,
and who sent it back.” Cyrus asks, “Who?” Bruno replies, “Angelique!
The woman at Collinwood is not Alexis! It’s Anglique, and she came back
to avenge her murder!” Cyrus asks, “Did you have anything to do with
her murder?” Bruno replies, “No, but maybe she thinks I do. That’s
the only reason I can think of”. Cyrus suggests, “Maybe you should
leave Collinsport”, but Bruno says, “No! I’m going to visit her
and have a showdown with her!” Cyrus points out, “You’ve already tried
that”. Bruno replies, “This is different. This time, it’s going to
be the final showdown – it’s gotten to the point where it’s her survival
or mine!”
At Collinwood, Quentin is talking on the phone, “Jennifer, all I want
to know is Maggie still living there…All I want is to talk to her…
What do you mean?…How long is this childishness going to go on?…
All right…Tell her I called and tell her I love her”.
Bruno bursts into Angelique’s room. Alexis shouts, “Get out of here!”
Bruno replies, “Oh, no, not this time! Not until I find out the TRUTH!
I know you’re Angelique, and you came back to avenge your murder. That’s
why you brought back Dameon Edwards, because you know about his death!
That’s why you brought him back to frighten me into admitting I murdered
you! I’m going to prove what you are, a living dead person!” Alexis
asks, “How on earth can you do that?” Bruno replies, “Like this – if
you’re already dead, you can’t die again!”, grabs her by the throat and
starts strangling her…

As Bruno strangles Alexis, he challenges her, “Use your powers on
me now! Or do you need a clay doll for that? Call on your false
gods to help you!” Quentin comes into the room, sees what’s happening and
shouts, “Let her go!” Bruno replies, “No!”, so Quentin pulls him off and
throws him out of the room. He then hugs and comforts the crying
Alexis. Alexis cries, “He’ll try again, all because he thinks I
am Angelique”. Quentin tell her, “He won’t. Trust me”. Alexis asks,
“What are you going to do?” Quentin replies, “I’m going to get rid
of that man forever! I’m going call my lawyer and get Bruno to see
the wisdon of leaving Colllinwood”. Alexis begs, “Please don’t let
him come back! He’s mad! You know that as well as I do!”
Bruno is down in the drawing room, thinking to himself, “Now why
can’t that man see the truth? Has she put a spell on him?” Quentin
comes into the room and asks, “You never learn, do you?” Bruno replies,
“You want the spirit of Dameon Edwards to leave this house as much as
I do. You know what’s causing this. Angelique always promised she’d
be back. You always ridiculed her interest in the occult, but you’ve
seen how fast she’s gotten rid of Maggie. Once the new Mrs. Collins
was out of the way, she had to get rid of anyone who suspected her,
hence, Dameon Edwards”. Quentin replies, “Nonsense!” Bruno says,
“When Hannah Stokes was here, you did believe something occult was
happening. But then you became afraid, you were afraid that Alexis
was your wife! If you believe Hannah Stokes, then believe what she
told me! Angelique is in this house!” Quentin shouts, “Get out!”
Bruno warns, “The spirit of Dameon Edwards will keep return ing until
you send Angelique back to her grave!” and leaves.
Cyrus is in his lab fiddling with some test tubes. Sabrina tries
to talk to him, but he brushes her off. Sabrina grumbles, “That
experiment! Always that experiment! What’s so fascinating about that
experiment?” Cyrus replies, “It just is, that’s all”. Sabrina complains,
“Listen to me for a minute, please! You’ve been so different since
you’ve come back! I used to feel that I knew everything about you,
but now I feel I don’t”. Cyrus replies, “It’s just that I’m growing
in ways I haven’t before. But Sabrina, there’s nothing to be afraid
of”, but she says, “I’m very afraid!” He hugs her.
Quentin goes into Angelique’s room but finds that Alexis isn’t
there. He notices a note written on blue paper lying on the desk
and reads it,

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


Quentin thinks, “Why would Alexis want to meet Hannah Stokes alone
and not want anyone to know? And why did she sign this note ‘A’
like Angelique used to?” He opens a desk drawer and looks around
inside until he finds a paper with the signature “Angelique Collins”.
He compares the ‘A’ on the note with the ‘A’ in Angelique and gasps
“They’re the same!” Alexis comes into the room. Quentin apologizes
for being in the room, “I’m sorry. I thought you’d be in here”.
Alexis explains, “I was looking for Trask. I have an errand for him
to run”. She takes the note, which Quentin had put back on the desk,
stuffs it into an envelope and leaves to have Trask deliver it.
Quentin looks at the portrait of Angelique and thinks, “I’ve got to
find out! I’ve got to!”
Cyrus is still working at the lab. He hears Sabrina upstairs
arguing loudly with a woman, “You can’t go down there!” But the
woman comes barging down anyway, announcing, “I must talk to him!
It’s a private matter!” It’s Buffie Harrington. Cyrus sends Sabrina
back upstairs and asks Buffie, “What can I do for you?” Buffie replies,
“It’s about a check”. She gets the check out of her purse after much
searching, shows it to Cyrus and asks, “This might seem like a strange
question, but did you sign this check?” Cyrus replies, “Yes, that’s
my signature”. Buffie, sounding surprised, asks, “Then I can cash
it?” Cyrus replies, “Yes. That’s what checks are for, aren’t they?”
Buffie asks, “Why did you sign this?” Cyrus replies, “Apparently a
friend of mine John Yaeger did some damage at the Eagle”. Buffie
remarks, “Boy, did he! That friend of yours is EVIL!” Cyrus says,
“I wouldn’t call him evil. He lives to extremes. He wouldn’t hurt
anyone deliberately”. Buffie exclaims, “You should see my friend
Steve! He’s in the hospital!” Cyrus replies, “But Steve provoked
Yaeger”. Buffie remarks, “He tells you everything, doesn’t he?”
Cyrus continues, “He told me he was very sorry about what happened.”
Buffie asks, “Did he tell you he rented some rooms where I live?”
Cyrus replies, “Yes he did”. Buffie asks, “Then why did he just
disappear?” Cyrus replies, “Because I sent him away”. Buffie asks,
“Does he work for you?” Cyrus replies, “You could say that”. He
takes out a wad of money and tells Buffie, “He gave me this to pay
for Steve’s hospital bills. Steve probably wouldn’t take it from
me if he knew I was John Yaeger’s friend, but he might take it from
you” and gives it to her. Buffie says, “Dr. Longworth, you seem
sensitive and kind. Let me tell you something. John Yaeger seems
to like me. But sometimes I’m afraid of him.” Cyrus tells her,
“I wouldn’t be if I were you”. Buffie suggests, “Maybe if you
came with him the next time, then I wouldn’t be so afraid. Ormaybe
you could come alone. I like quiet men”. Cyrus declines, “I don’t
have the time for levity. My work is very important”. Buffie
exasperatedly says, “Well, I tried! Good bye, Dr. Longworth”. Cyrus
says, “Miss Harrington, despite what you’ve said, you like John Yaeger,
don’t you?” Buffie replies, “Sometimes, maybe”.
After Buffie leaves, Sabrina comes back down and asks, “What did
that girl want?” Cyrus replies, “Nothing. She’s just a friend of
a friend”. Sabrina guesses, “John Yaeger! Just who is John Yaeger?
Can’t you tell me anything?” The phone rings. Cyrus answers. It’s
Quentin. He tells Cyrus, “I want to see you immediately!” Cyrus
tells him, “I’m working”, but Quentin is insistent, “Well, stop
working. I need you here immediately!” Cyrus says, “If you tell
me what you want”. Quentin replies, “I want you to help me open
a tomb.”
Cyrus is at Collinwood in the drawing room with Quentin. He asks,
“Open a tomb?!” Quentin replies, “Yes”. Cyrus points out, “Quentin,
you’ve always doubted the occult”. Quentin replies, “I’ve changed.”
Cyrus asks, “You believe Angelique has returned? You were at her
autopsy. You saw her buried.” Unknown to Cyrus and Quentin, Alexis
is in the foyer listening to them. Quentin replies, “If we open the
crypt, and there’s no body there, then we’ll know”. Cyrus asks,
“And what will you do if the body’s not there?” Quentin replies, “I
don’t know”.
Cyrus and Quentin go to the crypt and to the tomb


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

Quentin, Alexis and Cyrus stare into the coffin, eyes wide open
in surprise, for lying there is Angelique’s body, perfectly preserved,
without a trace of decomposition. Alexis exclaims, “She looks exactly
as she did in life!” Quentin gasps, “Dead for over six months, and
the body perfectly preserved! Cyrus, you’r a scientist. There must
be some explanation for this”. Cyrus replies, “There’s no explanation.
There’s no scientific reason a body could be so perfectly preserved!”.
Alexis asks, “Quentin, could you please close the coffin?” Quentin
refuses, “No. We must not delay matters. Angelique is dead, but
her body doesn’t rot. Now for her sake and our peace of mind, the
body must be destroyed!” Alexis asks, “How?” Quentin replies,
“I’m going to have the body cremated”. Alexis exclaims, “No! That’s
not right! I will fight this legally!” Quentin asks, “How many people
will believe she is really dead after what we’ve seen here?” Alexis
points out, “We could keep it secret.” She suggests that they lie
that they opened Angelique’s grave and saw exactly what they expected
to see, a decomposing body. Quentin says, “I don’t agree with you, but
I’ll think about it”. Alexis asks, “Could you please close the coffin
now?” Quentin closes the coffin. Cyrus asks, “Should we put it back
in?” Quentin replies, “No, no one ever comes here”. Alexis reminds
Quentin, “Do you remember why you came here? Do you believe who I
am now?” Quentin replies, “You are Alexis Stokes”.
At Collinwood, Trask is in the drawing room tending the fire.
He hears some wind, so he goes and closes the window. Then he
hears the front doors and goes to see what it is. It’s Amy.
Trask asks, “What are you doing here? You’re supposed to be at
the Loomis house until Mr. Collins sends for you” Amy replies,
“It’s lonely there. There’s no one to play with.” Trask tells her,
“Mr. Collins wants you there. Better get back or he’ll blame ME
for this”, but Amy says, “I don’t want to go back!” Trask says,
“But you can’t stay here with things like this”. Amy asks, “Things
like what?” Trask lies, “Nothing”. Amy says, “But it looks like
you were going to say something. Did you find out more about Dameon
Edwards?” Trask asks, “Why do youo ask?” Amy replies, “Just asking,
that’s all”. Trask grabs her and shouts, “That’s not all! You’ve
seen him again, haven’t you?” He starts to shake her and demands,
“Where? Tell me now!” Amy screams, “Let go! You’re hurting me!”
Trask replies, “I’m not going to let you go until you tell me where
you saw Dameon!” Quentin, Alexis and Cyrus return. Quentin asks,
“Trask, what are you doing?” Trask lets Amy go. Amy complains,
“I just got here and he started to hurt me!” Quentin puts Amy in
the drawing room and shuts the doors, then asks Trask, “Have you
lost your mind?!” Trask replies, “Sorry, Sir. I’m afraid I lost my
head. It’s this house. There’s an evil presence here. It’s
been here ever since Dameon Edwards came back”. Quentin says, “Get
a hold of yourself! How did she get here? Who brought her here?”
Trask replies, “She came of her own accord. I was just about to
bring her back”. Quentin sarcastically remarks, “It sure looked
that way”, then continues, “You will take her back, after I’ve
talked to her”. He goes into the drawing room to talk to Amy.
Outside the drawing room, Alexist sells Trask, “I’d like you
to know we’ve settled everything about Angelique’s death. Dr.
Longworth, why don’t you tell Trask what happened”. Cyrus says,
“We opened the grave and found Mrs. Collins at rest”. Trask protests,
“I believe what you say about Mrs. Collins, but there IS a spirit here,
something from beyond the grave!”. Alexis irritatedly says, “I don’t
want to discuss that” and sends Trask away. Alexis remarks, “That man
is so worked up!”. Cyrus replies, “Don’t be shocked, but I agree
with him. There’s something I want to talk to you in private about.
Could we go up to your room?” Alexis replies, “Of course”, and they
go up.
Up in Angelique’s room, Cyrus says, “I’d like to discuss Angelique
a little further. You were her sister. How well did you really know
her?” Alexis replies, “We were never very close. I suppose I could say
I never really knew her at all”. Cyrus remarks, “Then we here at
Collinwood really knew her better than you did. We both had an interest
in the occult, but she knew much more about it than I did. She always
said she would come back from the dead. That’s why she was never afraid
of death. I never believed she could – until tonight! I agree with
Quentin. The body must be destroyed, or we will never be able to
know what’s going to happen next”.
Quentin is with Amy in the drawing room. Amy is telling Quentin,
“I don’t want to go back!” Quentin replies, “You keep saying that,
but you give no reason”. Amy counters, “I HAVE given you a reason”,
but Quentin says, “I think it’s more than that”. Amy admits, “Not
having any playmates isn’t that bad, but there’s a spooky feeling
there! Something’s happening there, but it’s not something you can
see. All I know know is that there’s something happening there that
makes me more scared than I’ve ever been!” Quentin says, “Amy, you’ve
got to have more of an explanation that that”, but Amy replies, “I
have no explanation!” Quentin tells her, “You’ve got to try! All
people have reason to be afraid. All you have to do is think about
it. Is there any time of day or night that you feel this fear the
most?” Amy replies, “I feel it all the time when I’m in that house!”
Quentin asks, “What about Carolyn and Willie, can’t they help you?”
Amy replies, “Carolyn’s never there, and Willie spends most of his
time on his new book”. Quentin remarks, “New book? Willie hasn’t
written anything in five years”. Amy insists, “But his is. He’s
always very busy at it. One time I stood in the doorway watching
him and he was so busy he didn’t notice me. Here are two pages
I got from his wastebasket”. She gives two wrinkled pages of paper
to Quentin. Quentin reads what is apparently a draft,

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

Quentin muses, “I wonder what he could have found out. I must ask him”.
Alexis has summoned Trask to her room. There, she tells him,
“I want you to do something, something I don’t want anyone to know
about. I want you to drive me to my sister’s grave tonight”. Trask
replies, “I’ll have the car waiting out in front”.
Trask and Alexis have arrived at the graveyard. Alexis tells
Trask to wait for her in the car. Alexis goes into the crypt,
opens the coffin and says, “I wonder what your secret it. You
certainly do look as you did when you were alive. All I know is that
it goes against the natural order of things. I don’t really want to
do what I am about to do, but Quentin and Cyrus are right. You must
be destroyed”. She tenderly touches her sister’s body. Suddenly,
Angelique opens her eyes, smiles, and says, “My dear Alexis! You
are all so right! Someone will be destroyed, but it will not be me.
It will be YOU!”

Angelique sits up in her coffin. Alexis stands there with a look of
horror on her face, unable to speak. Finally, she gasps, “It can’t be
happening! It isn’t possible!” Angelique replies, “But it IS happening,
dear sister, thanks to you!” Alexis exclaims, “But you’re dead! You’re
dead!” Angelique continues, “There were so many things that didn’t
interest you. You were always so innocent. I was able to master things
you never dreamt of. I knew someone would come and open my tomb. The
touch of a human hand was all that I needed! Your touch brought me
back!” Alexis remarks, “It’s so cold!” Angleque explains, “You will
be colder and colder until you die! I need your lifeforce to live.
Look into my eyes! You have only a few minutes to tell me what I need
to know”. Alexis asks, “What do you mean?” Angelique replies, “We are
going to exchange places! I will take your place, and you will take
my place in this coffin!” Alexis screams, “NO!!!!!!”
Outside, Trask is wondering what’s taking Alexis so long.
Inside the tomb, Angelique has switched places with Alexis. Angelique
is standing looking down into the coffin, and Alexis is lying in the
coffin. Angelique speaks to the dead Alexis, “How peaceful you look!
I’m so grateful that you made my plan work so perfectly!” From outside,
Trask calls, “Are you still in there?” Angelique remarks, “Trask!
Faithful old Trask! He’s become worried because I’m taking so long!”
She calls Trask in. He asks, “Is anything wrong?” She replies, “No,
why do you ask?” Trask responds, “I thought I heard you talking in
here”. She explains, “I was just saying a prayer for my sister.”
Trask asks, “Are you ready to return to Collinwood?” Angelique replies,
“Yes. After tonight, I’m looking forward to it”.
At Collinwood, Quentin is in the drawing room. The window suddenly
blows open. The lights go out. Quentin calls out, “Dameon, is that
you? Are you trying to communicate with me? Do you know the secret?
Do you know why Angelique’s body hasn’t deteriorated?” But there is
no answer. The lights come back on.
Trask and Angelique come in through the front doors. Angelique
dismisses Trask, then goes into the drawing room. Quentin remarks,
“I thought you were going to spend the rest of the night in your
room”. Alexis replies, “No, I went for a short drive.” Quentin
tells her, “There’s something we must discuss. I know it’s painful
for you, but we must discuss the matter of Angelique”. Angelique
tells him, “I went to her tomb tonight. I thought things over carefully.
Now that I have, I believe you and Cyrus are right. The body of Angelique
must be destroyed, and the sooner the better!”
It is the next afternoon. Quentin is in the drawing room with Trask,
who’s straightening out things in the liquor cabinet. Quentin asks,
“Have you been able to reach Cyrus Longworth yet?” Trask replies, “I
called the lab and Sabrina said he’d be back at 3:00″. Quentin notes,
“It’s five of three right now”. Trask asks, “Have you decided what
to wear for dinner at the Conway’s?” Quentin asks, “The Conway’s?”
Trask reminds him, “You said you were going to have dinner with the
Conway’s tonight”. Quentin tells him, “I’m afraid that won’t be
possible. Tell Mr. Conway and tell him I’ll have to be out of town
tonight”. He calls the lab. Cyrus answers. Quentin says, “Hello?
Cyrus, this is Quentin”. Cyrus asks, “Quentin, is anything wrong?”
Quentin replies, “I would like you to meet me in the cemetary at
sunset”. Cyrus asks, “Why?” Quentin replies, “I can’t talk about
it over the phone. I’ll talk to you about it when you get there”.
As soon as Cyrus hangs the phone up, there’s a knock at the door.
Cyrus calls up, “Who is it?” A voice shouts back, “Chris!” Cyrus
goes up, lets Chris in, and brings him back down to the lab, remarking,
“I hope it’s something that can wait till later. I’m busy working”.
Chris replies, “Are you becoming an absent-minded professor? You sent
me a note. You said if I didn’t understand anything, I was to come see
you”. Cyrus asks, “What don’t you understand?” Chris replies, “Something
baffles me. You said to transfer $5000 from your account and put it in a
new account under the name ‘John Yaeger’. Is that some kind of pseudonym?”
Cyrus replies, “No, John Yaeger is a man who’s agreed to help me
with my experiment”. Chris remarks, “You’re not the kind of man
who would lend $5000 to a man he hardly knows. Is there something
about this experiment you don’t want in the open?” Cyrus asks, “Do
you mean is John Yaeger blackmailing me? No. All I want is to have
$5000 put in a bank account under John Yaeger’s name”. Chris tells
him, “Tell him to come to my office”. Cyrus asks, “Why?” Chris replies,
“If I’m to open a bank account for him, I’ll need his signature. And
I’d like to see what kind of man he is”. Cyrus replies, “All right.
I’ll tell him”. Chris remarks, “I’m looking forward to meething him”
and leaves. Cyrus gets out of his lab coat and puts on a dark coat.
Cyrus is at the graveyard with Quentin. He asks, “Quentin, what
is this all about?” Quentin replies, “I’ve decided we must destroy
the body of Angelique – tonight!” Cyrus asks, “What about Alexis?”
Quentin replies, “She’s given her approval. We’ll take the coffin
outside and put a torch to it”. Cyrus remarks, “I thought you were
going to have it properly cremated”. Quentin explains, “I can’t go
to the authorities and tell them my wife’s body won’t rot away”.
Cyrus says, “I don’t agree. Someone might see us”. Quentin says,
“We’ve got to take the chance”. Cyrus reluctantly agrees. Quentin
tells him, “I’ve got to take one last look at Angelique”. He opens
the coffin, looks at Alexis and remarks, “Just as beautiful as she
always was. Goodbye, Angelique” and closes the coffin. He tells
Cyrus, “Let’s take it outside!”
Outside, Quentin, using a torch, lights the coffin on fire and
watches it burn up.
At Collinwood, in Angelique’s room, Angelique is pruning a
houseplant. Trask comes in. She asks, “What is it?” He replies,
“You wanted me to tell you when Mr. Collins came back. His car just
came through the gates”. Angelique hands him some dead leaves and
tells him, “Destroy these?” Trask takes the leaves, but looks at
her with a funny expression on her face. She asks, “Is something
wrong?” Trask replies, “It’s good to see you’ve made yourself so
at home in the time you’ve been here. Sometimes it seems as if
Angelique never left”.
Cyrus and Quentin come in through the front doors. Cyrus tells
Quentin, “I’ve got to go back to the lab. I’ve got a lot of work
to do”, but Quentin says, “No, I insist that you stay here and have
at least one drink with me and Alexis before you go back to work”.
Cyrus agrees to do so. Quentin goes upstairs to get Alexis.
Quentin goes up to Angelique’s room. Angelique asks, “Quentin,
what’s wrong?” Quentin replies, “It’s all over. The coffin’s
been burned”. Angelique remarks, “I hope we did the right thing”.
Quenin replies, “I know we did. There’s going to be a big difference
in the atmosphere here. I hope it’ll bring Maggie back.” Angelique
remarks, “I’d like to meet her in better circumstances”. Quentin
says, “I hope you two will be good friends”, then tells her, “Cyrus
Longworth is downstairs. Would you like to come for a drink with us?”
Angelique replies, “No, tonight I just want to be by myself”.
Cyrus is in the drawing room waiting impatiently. The clock in
the foyer strikes the first quarter. Cyrus goes out, glances at
the time, then goes back into and paces around impaitently. Suddenly,
he doubles over in pain. He looks at his hands and finds that dark
hairs have grown on the backs. He goes over and look in mirror and
sees John Yaeger staring back at him. He hears Quentin coming down
the stairs and quickly closes and locks the drawing room doors. Quentin
tries to open the drawing room doors, finds them locked, and calls out,
“What is this all about? Cyrus, open the door! Cyrus, are you all right?”
Inside, John Yaeger stands there, wondering what to do…

Quentin continues to demand, “Cyrus, if you’re in there, open the
door! Is anything wrong?” Receiving no answer, Quentin shouts, “Trask!
Bring me the drawing room keys!” Receiving no answer, he leaves to get
them himself.
Inside the drawing room, Yaeger notices the window and starts for
it, then thinks to himself, “No, it must appear that I left of my
own consent. Of course! I’ll write a note!” He uncaps a fountain
pen he finds on the desk, gets a piece of paper from a drawer, and
writes, “Dear Quentin. Please pardon my leaving. I’ll explain later”.
He is about to leave the note there when something suddenly occurs
to him, “Idiot! That’s the handwriting I decided to use as John
Yaeger. I’ve got to start again!”. He crumbles up the note and
writes another one, leaves it on the desk, unlocks the drawing room
doors, then goes out the window.
Quentin returns and comes into the drawing room and finds it empty.
He looks around and finds the note on the desk, “Sorry I had to leave
without saying goodbye. I’ve just remembered an urgent appointment.
I’ll explain later. – Cyrus”. Amy comes walking into the room.
Quentin asks, “What are you doing here?” Amy replies, “Mr. Loomis
brought me here but he didn’t want to come in”. She complains, “Why
doesn’t anyone want me?” Quentin asks, “What do you mean?” Amy
replies, “Willie and Carolyn don’t want me at the old house, and you
don’t want me here!” Quentin tells her, “That’s not true. Sorry
if I gave you that impression. In fact, I’m glad you’ve come back.
Daniel is returning today. His uncle Roger should be returning
with him any moment now”. Amy notices a piece of crumpbled paper
on the floor. She picks it up, remarks, “Someone dropped this”
and gives it to Quentin, then leaves. Quentin uncrumples the paper
and reads it. A puzzled look comes onto his face. He compares it
with the other note and notes, “The handwriting, it’s different.
It’s similar, but different!”
John Yaeger returns to the lab. He gets the antidote from the
wall safe, but then thinks, “No! Why should I do this? Why should
I be afraid? I am John Yaeger! I am not Cyrus Longworth, that
coward. Longworth, he’d take the quick way out, but not me! I love
life, and I love adventure, and I’m not afraid! Even if I did change
without the potion, what of it? I should take advantage of it!”
He takes his cane, pushes the button to unsheath the knife and
exclaims, “I’m John Yaeger and I’m not afraid of anything!!!”
Daniel is talking to Amy outside Angelique’s room, “You’re just
saying that to make me feel bad that I’ve been away”. Amy insists,
“No, I really saw Dameon Edwards, and I saw him walk through a wall!”
Daniel says, “No you didn’t!” Quentin, who’s shown up, echoes, “No,
you didn’t, Amy”. Amy insists, “I saw him!”, but Quentin reminds her,
“We went down into that room and the wall was solid”. Amy is upset
that no one believes her.
At the lab, Yaeger remarks, “The one thing Cyrus and I share is
taste. We both know the best when we see it.”, as he admires a landscape
painting on the wall. He takes it off the wall and remarks, “I’m sure
Cyrus won’t mind if I take this for my room”. He hears Sabrina call down,
“Cyrus, are you down there?” Yaeger quickly exits out the basement door,
taking the painting with him. Sabrina comes down saying, “Cyrus, did I
hear you down here?” but finds the lab empty.
Yaeger goes to his rented rooms and puts the painting up. There’s
a knock at the door. Yaeger says, “Come in!” Buffie Harrington comes
in. She tells him, “Mrs. DuVal said you were here”. She looks around
and remarks, “It’s going to look very nice here”. Yaeger replies, “It’s
going to look magnificent!” Buffie notices the picture on the wall and
remarks, “I see you’ve already bought a picture. It looks nice”.
Yaeger again corrects her, “It looks magnificent!”. Buffie remarks,
“I’d been wondering where you’d disappeared to”. Yaeger replies, “I
have a few questions to ask you, too”. He goes and locks the door,
then asks, “Do you mind?” Buffie replies, “Of course not”. Yaeger
asks, “I don’t frighten you, do I?” Buffie replies, “No”. Yaeger
remarks, “Good. I don’t think you’ve done anything to make you afraid
of me, have you?” Buffie doesn’t answer. Yaeger prompts her, “Well,
have you?”
At the lab, Sabrina is talking on the phone to Quentin, who wants
to know if Cyrus is there. She notices that the painting is missing.
Yaeger asks Buffie, “Why did you go to Longworth’s lab? You wanted
to see if the check had any value, didn’t you? You don’t trust me,
do you?” Buffie lies, “I just went there to thank him”. Cyrus remarks,
“Why? I gave you the check!” He continues, “I don’t expect you trust
me since we don’t really know one another yet, but it grieves me that
you don’t like me”. Buffie insists, “I do like you. Haven’t I proven
that to you?” Yaeger says, “But I thought you said you liked quiet
men”. Buffie asks, “Quiet men?” Yaeger says, “Didn’t you say to
Cyrus Longworth that you liked quiet men?” Buffie asks, “He told you
that?” Yaeger remarks, “A quiet man. Very well. I won’t make a sound.
Not a sound. No one will hear a thing. Not a single solitary sound”.
He starts to slap her around.
Yaeger has beaten Buffie. She complains, “You didn’t have to do
that!” Yaeger replies, “I had to do it. I had to prove that I could
be a quiet man. Is that satisfactory?” Buffie begs, “Let me go back
to my room”. Yaeger replies, “If you insist. But before you go, just
to prove that there was no malice in the lesson today, I’d like to let
you have this” and gives her Cyrus’ painting. Buffie asks, “You’d like
me to have this?” Yaeger replies, “Yes, deep down, we both appreciate
the beautiful”. Buffie thanks him. Yaeger continues, “And I’d like
to take you out to dinner”. Buffie, incredulous, asks, “You’d like to
take me out to dinner?” Yaeger replies, “Yes, to a place with good
food and good wine”. Buffie asks, “You’d take me to a place like that?”
Yaeger at first says yes, then starts laughing hysterically. Buffie
asks, “What’s wrong?” Yaeger replies, “Did you really think I’d take
you out looking like that with bruises on your arms and cuts on your
face?” Buffie protests, “But you asked me!” Yaeger replies, “Maybe
sometime in the future when you’ve learned how to take care of yourself!
Good night, Miss Harrington!” Buffie leaves.
In the drawing room at Collinwood, Amy is showing Quentin a wrinkled
piece of typing paper, explaining, “I took this paper from Mr. Loomis’
trash can to draw on”. I read it and found out he’s writing about a
room in the East Wing. I thought he was writing about Angelique’s room,
but he said it was empty. Is this part of his book about Barnabas”.
Quentin assures her, “It’s just a story”. But after Amy leaves, Quentin
reads it and gets a strange look on his face.
Yaeger goes back to the lab. He opens the safe and takes the antidote
out, but hears someone coming and quickly puts it back into the safe,
which he closes. Sabrina comes down into the lab and demands to know,
“Who are you? What are you doing here? Who let you in?” Yaeger asks,
“Hasn’t Cyrus ever told you about his good friend John Yaeger?” Sabrina
says, “John Yaeger! I should have known. How did you get in?” Yaeger
replies, “With the key Cyrus gave me”. He asks her, “Are you always
so cold? I sense some emotional release trying to get out”. Sabrina
warns him, “You’d better leave before Cyrus comes back”. Yaeger counters,
“But it was Cyrus who told me to wait for him here”. Sabrina starts
to leave, saying, “Well, if you’d excuse me…”, but Yaeger interrupts,
“No, I’d like you stay and talk about that emotional release I mentioned
earlier”, but Sabrina leaves. Yaeger smiles, then takes the antidote
back out and takes a swallow.
Quentin goes to the hallway outside Angelique’s room. He hears
Daniel and Amy talking inside. He opens the door and sees Amy and
Daniel in an unfurnished room arguing. “Daniel” is arguing, “Maybe
if we stayed and waited something might happen”. Amy argues that
nothing will. “Daniel” insists, “I heard Dr. Hoffman tell my father
Barnabas was trapped in here”. Quentin calls out, “Daniel! Amy!”, but
they continue to argue without appearing to hear him. Quentin shouts,
“Amy! Can’t you hear me?” A voice from behind him answers, “Of
course I can hear you”. He turns around and is shocked to see
Amy and Daniel standing there. Daniel asks, “We heard you calling
us. Is something wrong?”

Quentin looks at them with a shocked look on his face. Daniel asks,
“Father, is anything wrong?” Quentin lies, “No, nothing. Nothing
at all. What are you two doing here?” Amy replies, “He wanted to
see Alexis”. Quentin asks, “Where did you two come from?” Daniel
replies, “My room. Where is it?” Quentin replies, “I just wanted
to know. Why don’t you two go and play?” Daniel reminds him, “I
wanted to see Alexis!” Quentin replies, “She’s resting”. He asks,
“Amy, when you were at the Loomis house, did you ever hear Mr. Loomis
talk about Barnabas Collins?” Amy replies, “No, he never spoke about
him, he just wrote about him in those pages I showed you”. Quentin
sends the children away, then thinks, “Unused. How could it be unused.
They were in that room, yet they were also walking down the hall”.
He opens the doors and is surprised to see the room as it usually
is, brightly lit and cheerfully furnished, with “Alexis” sitting there.
Seeing the strange expression on Quentin’s face, Angelique asks, “What’s
wrong?” Quentin replies, “A moment ago, I opened that door. The room
was empty, the children were in here, dressed in different clothes
talking about Barnabas Collins. Then I saw them in the hallway!
I’m not hallucinating!” Angelique suggests, “It must be the stress”.
Quentin says, “So many things have happened here. I thought once
Angelique was in her final resting place, this would all stop”.
Angelique says, “You can’t blame THIS on Angelique”. Quentin remarks,
“Well, at least we seem to be rid of the ghost of Dameon Edwards”.
Angelique asks, “Dameon Edwards?” Angelique, puzzled, asks, “Dameon
Edwards?” Quentin asks, “What’s wrong? You act as if you don’t
know what’s been happening around here”, which of course she doesn’t.
She says, “Oh, yes, Dameon Edward”, then quickly changes the subject,
“Ever since we’ve learned my sister was murdered, you’ve done nothing
to find the murderer”. Quentin replies, “Angelique was NOT murdered.
A very disturbed girl said that at a seance”. He notices “Alexis” start
to shiver and asks, “What’s wrong?” Angelique replies, “I just feel
a chill”. Quentin asks, “Are you sure you’re all right?” Angelique
replies, “I’m just cold, that’s all”. Quentin turns to leave, saying,
“When you feel better, maybe you could come down and join me for a
glass of brandy”. He adds, “And Alexis, if Angelique had been murdered,
I’d want to find the murderer as much as you” and leaves. Angelique
quickly puts on a shawl and thinks, “I’m so cold! Why?”
Daniel and Amy are playing in a dusty storage room at the old house.
Amy is saying, “When I stayed here with Carolyn, we used to play here
all the time. Don’t you like it?” Daniel replies, “No! Going through
trunks is for girls!” Amy points out, “But there are all sorts of things
stored here! Clothes, letters…” Daniel asks, “Ever play in the
basement?” Amy replies, “No, it’s always locked”. Daniel says, “It
didn’t used to be. Anyway, there’s a secret passage that goes there
from the beach. Want to go?” Amy refuses, “Not at night!” She
makes a suggestion, “I saw a sword in here once”. Daniel gets excited
and asks, “What kind of sword? A foil? A saber?” He starts to look
around and finds a stack of paintings leaning against a wall and
starts to look through them. Suddenly, he exclaims, “Do you hear
that noise? It sounds like a heartbeat!…and it’s coming from this
picture!” It’s the portrait of Barnabas. Daniel reads the label and
says, “Amy, look! It says ‘Barnabas Collins’. That’s the one father
was talking about!”. Amy comes over and looks at the portrait. As
soon as she sets eyes on it, she screams and faints. Daniel shouts,
“Amy! Amy, are you all right?” Amy starts to regain conciousness.
Daniel asks, “What happened?” Amy replies, “Chained! Trapped!
Chained! Trapped!” A man comes into the room and complains, “Hey!
You two aren’t supposed to be in here!” Amy again says, “Chained!
Trapped!” The man asks, “What happened to her?” Daniel replies,
“I don’t know. She just fainted”. The man says, “We’d better get
her to Collinwood”.
Later at Collinwood, Quentin is asking Daniel, “You weren’t just
trying to scare her, were you?” Daniel replies, “No!” The man comes
into the room. Quentin asks, “What did the doctor say?” The man
replies, “He doesn’t know. She just keeps repeating two words,
‘chained’ and ‘trapped'”. Quentin says, “Thank you, Fred”. Fred
tells Quentin, “I gotta be getting back to the Old House. Mrs.
Loomis asked me to clean the attic” and leaves. Quenting wonders,
“There’s got to be some reason she fainted. But what is it?”
Fred goes out into the foyer. Angelique is coming down the
stairs. Fred remarks, “I’ve missed seeing you at the Old House,
Miss Alexis”. Angelique exclaims, “Fred!” Fred asks, “What is
it?” Angelique replies, “I feel so cold!” Fred replies, “I know
what to do about that!” and embraces her. He asks, “Feel better
now?” Angelique replies, “Yes!” Fred remarks, “I’ve wanted to
hold you like this ever since I saw you. Why don’t you come and see
later?” Angelique says, “I will! Kiss me!”, but just as he is about
to kiss her, hears the drawing room doors opening and they quickly
seperate. Quentin comes out and remarks, “Still here, Fred?” Fred
replies, “Just leaving, Mr. Collins” and leaves.
Hannah Stokes is in her house, sitting at table with a crystal
ball on it. She deals some Tarot cards on the table, then laughs
at what she sees. There’s a knock at the door. Hannah answers.
It’s Angelique. Thinking it’s Alexis, Hannah remarks, “Well, what
an honor! I don’t think you’ve ever been here before. Your sister
came here often. There were things she could do here that she couldn’t
do at the big house.” Angelique tells Hannah, “I want my fortune read”.
Hannah replies, “I thought you didn’t believe in the occult”. Angelique
says, “Perhaps I’ve changed”. Hannah takes up her Tarot cards and
deals one out. She announces, “The Tower of Destruction”. Then
she turns over another card and annouces, “The Moon, inverted”. She
appears shocked. Angelique asks, “What does that mean?”, but Hannah
just says, “Go! Now!”. Angelique insists, “Tell me what the cards
mean!” Hannah tells her, “They say you have no future!”. Angelique
demands, “Read my palm!” Hannah refuses, but Angelique insists,
“Read my palm!”. Hannah asks, “Then you will go?” Angelique promises,
“Yes”. Hannah takes a look at her palm and exclaims, “You! You’re
not Alexis! You’re Angelique!”
Angelique remarks, “You knew I would come back”. Hannah says,
“No! No!” Angelique asks, “Don’t you want to know how?” Again
Hannah says, “No! I don’t want to know!” Angelique says, “I have
some things to ask you. Where is Julia Hoffman? I was afraid to
ask at Collinwood because it would give me away”. Hannah replies,
“Quentin gave her a vacation”. Angelique continues, “I must get
her back. And the most important question. Why is the ghost of
Dameon Edwards here?” Hannah says, “You know why!”, but before they
can discuss the matter further, Angelique suddenly complains, “It’s
so cold here! You must help me!” Hannah says, “No”. Angelique
warns her, “You must, or YOU will feel the cold, the cold of the
tomb!” Hannah asks, “Why have you come back?” Angelique replies,
“Because of Love! I could not bear not having Quentin’s love!”
Hannah guesses, “You’re going to kill him!” Angelique replies, “No,
Quentin will want to die when he finds out who murdered me!” Hannah
asks, “Murdered?” Angelique replies, “Yes, in the dark, something
hard pressed here, then I felt a sharp pain.” She again complains,
“The cold!” Hannah says, “Tell me more!”, but Angelique says, “I
feel the cold trying to draw me back to the tomb! I don’t have
much time left unless you go to the Loomis house and get that man
Fred!” Hannah refuses to do so. Angelique warns her, “If I die
again, I will come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!”
Quentin is with Amy in the drawing room of Collinwood. Quentin
asks Amy, “Feeling better?” Amy replies, “Yes”. Quentin asks, “Can
you tell me what happened tonight?” Amy replies, “I’m not sure”.
Quentin tells her, “For me to help you, you’ve got to tell me what
you saw when you looked at that portrait tonight”. Amy replies,
“I saw his eyes. I felt he needed help”. Quentin points out,
“Barnabas Collins died almost 200 years ago!” Amy replies, “I
know! I know!”
Hannah brings Fred back to her house and leaves him there with
Angelique, saying, “I’ll be upstairs if you want me”. Fred lustfully
embraces Angelique, then exclaims, “You’re cold!” Angelique commands,
“Look at me!” Fred looks at her and says, “You’re so beautiful! Ever
since the first time I saw you I wanted you!”, but then after a moment
says, “What’s happening to me? I feel so cold!” Angelique commands,
“Look at me! You will feel cold, but you must not turn away from
me! Kiss me!” Fred kisses her. Suddenly, he stiffens, then collapses
onto the floor. Angelique calls, “Hannah! Hannah! I’m all right
now! I’m all right!” Hannah comes down. She inspects Fred and
exclaims, “He’s so cold!” Angelique replies, “And I am warm again”.
Hannah examines Fred further and says, “He’s dead! It’s as if he’s
been dead for hours!” Angelique replies, “This is the way it will be
from now on. This the way I must live now, and when Quentin joins me
he will live this way too – for eternity!”

Angelique asks, “You’re frightened, aren’t you, Hannah?” Hannah
replies, “Who wouldn’t be?” Angelique remarks, “I’m glad your afraid,
because you are going to serve me”. Hannah starts to say, “Angelique…”
but Angelique admonishes her, “Don’t call me that, even when we’re
alone! Now I want you to take the body out and burn it”. Hannah
asks, “Suppose someone saw me bring him here?” Angelique replies, “He
was a loner, a drifter. Anyone who may have seen you will just think
he went away”. Hannah begs, “Don’t leave me with him!”, but Angelique
says, “I’ve got to go”. Hannah says, “Don’t ever come to me again!
I do this because I must. You will need warmth again, and I want no
part of it!” Angelique picks up Hannah’s crystal ball and muses, “You
were always so interested in communicating with the dead, now you have me
and you’re afraid!” Hannah asks, “What about Dameon Edwards? What
if he told Quentin how he really died?” Angelique replies, “He will
never keep me from having Quentin forever. You will see. You will
Trask is at Bruno. Bruno is asking, “And the body was in that
tomb?” Trask replies, “Yes”. Bruno says, “I’d like to see it”,
but Trask tells him, “It’s been burned”. Bruno muses, “So, the
woman at Collinwood IS Alexis”. Trask says, “Bruno, we’re in
trouble! If the ghost of Dameon Edwards is not in the house because
of Angelique, then it’s there because of US! What are we going to
do?” Bruno suggests, “You could leave town”. Trask asks, “But where
would I go?” Bruno tells him, “Stop worrying about the ghost until
we have to!”
Angelique returns to Collinwood. In the foyer, she notices that
a telegram on the table. She picks it up, reads that it’s addressed
to Quentin, and puts it back on the table. She walks a few feet away,
pauses, then turns back, picks up and opens the telegram and reads it,

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

Suddenly, she hears a voice call out, “Alexis!” She looks up and sees
Quentin on the landing. She quickly puts the telegram behind her back.
Quentin comes down the stairs. Hoping Quentin didn’t see the telegram,
Angelique says, “I was just thinking of you”. Quentin asks, “Pleasant
thought?” Alexis replies, “Yes”. Quentin says, “Thanks. I need them”.
Angelique asks, “Has anything happened?” Quentin replies, “No, the
house is very quiet. Come and have a brandy with me”. Angelique
declines, “There’s something I have to do”, but Quentin says, “Do it
later. The perfect guest always agrees with the host!” Angelique
smiles and says, “All right, I’ll be the perfect guest”. Quentin
goes into the drawing room. Angelique, relieved that Quentin did not
see the telegram, takes it out of hiding and crumples it up. She
goes into the drawing room where she tosses the telegram into the
fire as Quentin has his back turned pouring the drinks. Angelique
remarks, “I feel so at home here now”. Quentin says, “I’m glad”.
Angelique remarks, “Are you? I’m surprised. Angelique used to love
this house so”. Quentin gets a funny expression on his face. Angelique
asks, “Oh, it still hurts to mention her? Would you prefer to talk
about Maggie? I don’t know how she could ever leave this house!”
Quentin asks, “Why all this talk about Maggie?” Angelique replies,
“Perhaps by understading her, I’ll be able to understand you”.
Quentin remarks, “Maggie is very childlike, a very innoent creature”.
Angelique says, “Not at all like Angelique. Even when she was a child.
she was so sophisticated. I was very surprised to hear you had married
again”. Quentin asks, “Were you?” Angelique says, “I didn’t think you
could ever find anyone who could measure up to Angelique. What are you
going to do? Call her?” Quentin growls, “No! I’m never going to call
or write to her again until she writes or calls me!” Angelique picks
up a statue from a table and places it on the mantel. Quentin asks,
“How did you know to put it there? Angelique bought it just for that
very spot”. Angelique replies, “I don’t know. It just seemed to
look right there. You’re not thinking I’m Angelique again, are you?”
Quentin replies, “No, a week ago I might have, but not now”. Suddenly,
the lights go out and a disembodied voice asks, “Do you know who I am?”
Quentin exclaims, “Dameon!” and embraces Angelique. The voice repeats,
“You know who I am, don’t you, Quentin?” Quentin asks, “Why don’t you
appear to me? What do you want from us?” The voice replies, “She knows!
She knows!” The lights come back on. Angelique says, “No, I don’t! I
swear it! Why is he here? Maybe he’s got me confused with Anglique!”
Quentin asks, “Why do you say that? Why would he hate Angelique”.
Angelique lies, “I would have no knowledge of that”. Quentin remarks,
“Of course you wouldn’t. I used to ridicule Angelique’s belief in the
occult, but I think he knowledge could help us now”. Trask comes into
the room and asks, “What is it, Sir?” Quentin replies, “He’s back.
Dameon Edward’s back. Perhaps now you can tell us why his spirit
cannot rest”. Trask replies, “I find it as much a mystery as you
do, Sir”. Quentin, not quite believing him, says, “I’m going to take
Alexis upstairs. I’ll be here if you wish to say anything more”.
After Quentin and Alexis leaves, Trask looks around the drawing room
and calls out, “Dameon! Dameon! Give me a sign you can hear me! I
didn’t kill you, Dameon, I swear! It’s Bruno you should be after!
Bruno! Can you hear me, Dameon?”
Quentin takes Angelique up to her room. Soon after he leaves, Bruno
comes into the room. Angelique asks, “What do you want?” Bruno looks
at the portrait and say, “She put passion in my music. The music critics
don’t notice it’s gone yet”. He turns to Angelique and says, “I came
here to apologize. When I saw you, I thought Angelique had returned.
I was wrong”. Angelique replies, “Glad to hear that?” Bruno asks,
“Then can we be friends?” Angelique snaps, “Can you ever be friends
with anyone, Bruno?”, then quickly apoligizes, “Sorry, that was uncalled
for. You took a great risk in coming here”. Bruno says, “I find you
very charming”. Angelique replies, “And perhaps in time I’ll find you
very charming”.
Quentin is interrogating Trask again. Trask begs, “Please don’t
keep asking me! If I knew anything about Dameon Edwards, I would have
told you!”. Quentin remarks, “There must be a reason, Trask”. Trask
replies, “You’ve got to find out, Sir!”.
Amy stares at the portrait of Barnbas.
Hannah returns home. The phone rings. She answers it. It’s
Angelique. She tells Hannah, “You must come here! I need your help.
It’s Dameon Edwards”. Hannah protests, “I can do nothing about Dameon
Edwards. His spirit is too powerful”. Angelique replies, “But I can.”
Hannah remarks, “Well, do it”. Angelique says, “And risk being exposed?
Even Bruno believes I’m Alexis now. They will think you are doing the
exorcism. I will do it through you. You must come before Quentin finds

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

“I had to do this to be with the one I love”.

The ghost laughs hysterically.
