Maggie runs out of the West Wing and downstairs into the
foyer, where Elizabeth is talking to Chris and Carolyn, who
have just come home from a date. Maggie tells them she’s
just seen a strange man in the West Wing. Chris and Carolyn
go up to search the West Wing. Elizabeth takes Maggie into
the drawing room and asks her what happened. As Maggie describes
the man, she suddenly realizes that the man fits the description
of the man Mrs. Johnson claims to have seen at the cottage.
Elizabeth asks Maggie why she was in the West Wing. Maggie
tells her about following David there earlier and about
David’s strange disappearance there. She tells Elizabeth that
when she found David missing from his room tonight, she thought
he might have gone to the West Wing again and went there to
see if he did. She tells Elizabeth that she thinks David knows
something about the man, that he must have had a very good
reason to go to the West Wing in spite of the fact he was
grounded to his room.
Chris and Carolyn search the West Wing, but don’t find
anything.
Quentin appears in David’s room and talks to David
telepathically. We can tell by David’s side of the
conversation that Quentin’s telling him about a plan
involving someone named “Mr. Juggins”. Carolyn and Chris,
passing by in the hallway outside, hear David talking and
come in to see who he’s talking to, but when they open
the door, they see David there alone. Quentin is gone.
Carolyn asks David who he was talking to. David replies that
he was talking to himself. Carolyn and Chris leave.
Elizabeth and Maggie go to David’s room and question him.
David claims to know nothing about he man Maggie claims to
have seen, but does admit having gone to the West Wing. Asked
if he had any special reason for going there, David replies
that he got bored in his room and that was the only place
he could go where no one could see him wandering around,
disobeying his punishment. Maggie asks how he disappeared
from the storage room. David lies, “I didn’t. I was hiding”.
Maggie tells him she doesn’t believe him, that the storage
room is pretty small and she’s sure she searched it throughly,
and accuses him of lying, saying she thinks he’s still hiding
something. David insists that he’s not, that he was hiding,
that Maggie just didn’t find him because she didn’t know
where to look. He volunteers to show them the hiding place.
David takes Elizabeth and Maggie into the West Wing and
into the storage room. When they shine a flashlight around,
they see a man dressed in 19th century clothes, just as
Maggie described. Elizabeth and Maggie gasp, but when they
shine the flashlight at the head, they see that it’s just
a dummy, with an egg-shaped head and a painted-on face.
David explains, “That’s just Mr. Juggins, a friend of me
and Amy!”. Elizabeth asks Maggie, “Could be what you saw?”

It is late at night and everyone in the house is asleep
except for two people.
Unable to sleep and not believing “Mr. Juggins” is what
she saw, Maggie is in the drawing room staring out the window.
Mrs. Johnson, locking up the house, comes into the drawing
room and finds Maggie there. They talk, and Maggie tells
Mrs. Johnson, “I saw the man you saw at the cottage too, but
HERE, at Collinwood”. Mrs. Johnson asks, “Why don’t you tell
Mrs. Stoddard?”. Maggie replies, “I have, but she doesn’t
believe me because David managed to convince her what I saw
was a clothes mannequin”. Mrs. Johnson agrees that the children
are somehow involved and calls them evil. Maggie disagrees,
saying she thinks it’s the man who’s evil, that he’s influencing
the children.
Later, Maggie goes to sleep and has a dream in which she
goes into the West Wing and looks at Mr. Juggins. The mannequin
fades away and turns into Quentin’s ghost. Maggie asks, “Who are
you? What do you want?”, but Quentin doesn’t answer. Instead, he
pulls a scarf from inside his coat and starts to strangle Maggie
with it.
The next day, maggie tells Barnabas about seeing the man,
and about her dream, saying she thinks the dream is a warning
to her to leave Collinwood, not really expecting him to believe
her. Barnabas surprises her by telling her he does believe her,
that he knows something strange is going on at Collinwood because
he and Julia saw a strange woman in Victorian clothes a few
days ago who led them to Chris when he was ill and needed Julia’s
help. Maggie asks what they can do about it. Barnabas replies
that he’ll call Professor Stokes.
When Stokes comes, Barnabas tells him the things that have
happened at Collinwood recently. Stokes mentions the psychic
he had brought here, Janet Findley, saying she was in the prime
of her life and perfectly healthy, that he doesn’t believe she
really died of a heart attack as the coroner says. He tells
Barnabas that if Janet Findley was indeed killed by some
force in the house and not natural causes, he spirit would
still be in the house and may be able to help them. He
suggests they have a seance to contact her.
There are only two other people in the house, Maggie and
Mrs. Johnson, Carolyn and Elizabeth having gone to Bangor
for dinner. Maggie and Mrs. Johnson are in Maggie’s room,
talking about the children. Maggie is looking in the mirror,
brushing her hair. Mrs. Johnson sits down at the writing
desk, picks up a scarf she finds on it and starts toying
with it. Maggie sees this in the mirror and turns around,
a look of shock on her face. She exclaims, “That was the
scarf I was strangled with in the dream!!!”.
Maggie and Mrs. Johnson rush down into the drawing room
with the scarf and tell Barnabas and Stokes about it.
Stokes tells Maggie and Mrs. Johnson they must have a
seance. Mrs. Johnson tells Stokes she doesn’t want to
be part of it, but Stokes tells her she and Maggie must
take part in it, as they are the only people present who
have seen the man.
The seance starts. Stokes calls to the Janet Findley.
The door the the bedroom hallway at the top of the stairs
myteriously by itself, and something invisible apparently
comes out and comes down the stairs into the drawing room.
The spirit of Janet Findley possesses Mrs. Johnson and
speaks through her, saying something cryptic about,
“The children! The panel! The room!”. Stokes asks the
spirit to be more specific, and the spirit explains, “I found
the room and waited there. HE came and killed me!”. Mrs. Johnson
collapses, unconscious.

Barnabas tells Julia about the seance. Julia asks what
the spirit meant by “The children!”. Barnabas replies, “It
can mean only one of three things. Either the children are
in danger, or they know who killed Findley, or perhaps they’re
the ones who killed her”.
They finds Amy and questions her about Janet Findley. After
questioning her, Julia is convinced that the children knew
nothing about Findley’s death, that in fact, they don’t even
know she’s dead. Julia explains to Barnabas that Elizabeth
never told the children about Findley’s death, not wanting to
shock and scare them. Julia suggests that maybe Chris is
somehow involved in it since someone did try to kill him.
She tells Barnabas that although Chris doesn’t consciously
know anything about the blond woman who saved him, subconciously
he might, and if that’s the case, it can be gotten by hypnosis.
Amy goes to Chris’ cottage. Chris asks, “How are you?” Amy
replies, “Happy, happier than I’ve ever been before”. Chris
asks, “Why?” Amy replies, “Because you’re all right”. Chris asks,
“Why wouldn’t I be all right?” Amy suddenly goes off on a tangent,
saying, “Mrs. Stoddard took David and me to Bangor last night”.
Chris, puzzled, asks “Are you trying to change the subject?”
Amy replies, “No, I just thought you’d like to hear about my
trip”. They are interrupted by the arrival of Barnabas and
Julia, who say they want to talk to Chris in privat. Amy leaves.
Julia tells Chris that she thinks he may have subconscious
knowledge about the mysterious blond woman, knowledge that might be
unlocked by hypnosis. Chris is dubious, but agrees to let Julia
hypnotize him.
Amy is in the woods. Beth appears to her and Beth gives
her an old wooden doll and instructs her telepathically what
to do with it.
Julia hypnotizes Chris and finds that he doesn’t have any
subconcious knowledge of the blond woman either.
In the woods, Amy tells Beth, “I’ll do it as long as no one
will be hurt. No one’s going to be hurt? Promise?” Beth
nods yes. There is the sound of someone approaching. Amy
hides. Beth vanishes. Barnabas and Julia pass by. Amy
comes out of hiding and looks for Beth, but finds she isn’t
there.
As Julia and Barnabas get to the front door of Collinwood,
Julia brings up a possibility they hadn’t considered before,
“What if we can’t find a cure for Chris? Then we’ll have no
alternative but to expose him and turn him in to the authorities”.
Barnabas sadly agrees.
At the cottage, a strange feeling comes over Chris and he
leaves the cottage and goes into the woods. There, Beth
appears to him. Chris tries to talk to her, but Beth remains
silent. She points to a spot on the ground. Chris looks.
Beth then points at a tree. Chris looking at the tree, says,
“Why are you pointing at that tree?”, but when he turns back to
look at Beth, she’s gone.
At Collinwood, Julia can’t find Amy and goes to look for her.
Chris rushes to Collinwood and tells Barnabas, “I saw her!
I saw the woman you talked about!” Barnabas tells Chris, “You’d
better take me to the spot you saw her”.
Not having found Amy, Julia returns to the drawing room and
finds that she’s there. She asks Amy where she’s been. Amy
replies that she’s been playing in the basement. Julia
notices that Amy is holding a wooden doll and asks her about
it. Amy replies that she found it in the basement.
Barnabas and Chris go to the spot in the woods where Chris
saw Beth. Chris points out the spot on the ground Beth had
pointed to, then points to the tree she pointed to. He is
surprised to see that there’s a shovel leaning against the tree
now. Barnabas says, “She obviously wants us to dig here”.
They dig, and find what looks like a child’s coffin. They
begin to pry the lid open…

Barnabas and Chris pry open the coffin. They find that
it contains the remains of a child. Chris points to something
the child is wearing and asks, “What’s that right there?” Barnabas
looks and says, “A pentagram! Someone here long ago needed
protection against a werewolf!”. Chris exclaims, “I don’t believe
it! You mean there was a werewolf here before?” Barnabas replies,
“That’s the only thing it can mean”. Chris asks, “Then why haven’t
we ever heard about it?” Barnabas replies, “Perhaps the people
who knew about it were as quiet about it as Julia and I are about
you”. Chris remarks, “It must have something to do with me. How
old do you think it is?” Barnabas replies, “50 to 75 years old,
I’d say. It certainly isn’t the pine box used in an earlier era”.
Chris wonders, “If it has something to do with me, then why is
it here on Collins property?” Barnabas asks, “Was your family
here in Collinsport 75 years ago?” Chris replies, “Yes, but they
had nothing to do with the Collinses. If only the blonde woman
would speak!”. Barnabas replies, “Perhaps she can’t, or perhaps
she dares not. We’d better put the child back in its grave”.
They rebury the child. They do not notice the ghost of Quentin
watching them from behind some trees.
It is late at night at Collinwood. David goes down into
the library and gets a book called “Ghosts and Exorcisms”.
Carolyn catches David there and tells him it’s past his
bedtime. Then she notices the book he’s holding and asks
him why he’s reading something like that. David starts to talk
about the strange things that have been happening at Collinwood
and appears to be trying – in an oblique manner – to tell
Carolyn about Quentin, but suddenly stops when he sees Quentin
standing outside the window.
In the woods, Barnabas and Chris wonder why the blonde woman
wanted them to dig up the child. Chris remarks, “There’s some
clue we must be missing! I don’t think she led us here just
to find the pentagram!”. Barnabas replies, “Maybe it is all
we need”.
David is in Quentin’s secret room with Quentin. Quentin
apparently having just instructed David to do something, David
says, “No, I don’t want to do it, Quentin! Every time you ask
me to do something like this, terrible things happen!” Quentin
stares menancingly at David. David screams, “NO! NO! All right,
Quientin, I’ll get the medallion for you!”. Quentin smiles.
It is the next day. Barnabas is sitting at the desk in
the drawing room of Collinwood examining the medallion with
a maginifying glass. David is in the drawing room too, throwing
darts shaped like rockets at a dartboard bearing the title, “Rocket
Darts” he has set up on a chair, making quite a racket. Irritated
by the noise, Barnabas asks, “Do you have to do that here?” David
asks, “What are you doing?” Barnabas replies, “Trying to read the
inscription on this medallion”. David asks, “What does it say?”
Barnabas reads it aloud, “To guard you from the wrath of Cerebrus”.
David asks, “Who’s Cerebrus?” Barnabas replies, “You should know
that. Cerebrus is the wild dog that guards the gates of hell”.
Carolyn comes walking into the room and remarks, “What’s with the
mythology lesson?” Barnabas replies, “It’s an inscription on this
old medallion I found in an old trunk in the basement of the old
house”, lying about where he found the medallion. Carolyn asks,
“May I see it?” Barnabas hands her the medallion and magnifying
glass. Carolyn examines the medallion and remarks, “The jeweller’s
mark looks familiar”. Barnabas replies, “I thought so too”. Carolyn
gets a silver candlestick, compares the jeweller’s mark on it to the
one on the medallion, and annouces that they’re the same. She tells
Barnabas that the medallion must have been made at the same place
the candlestick was made, Braithwaite’s. Carolyn leaves, and Barnabas
looks in the telephone book for a Braithwaite’s. He finds a listing
for it and telephones it, “Hello, Mr. Braithwaite, this is Barnabas
Collins”. Braithwaite, a very aged man (Abe Vigoda), replies,
“Barnabas Collins? A pleasure to hear from you, Mr. Collins!”.
Barnabas tells him, “Mr. Braithwaite, I wanted to discuss a curious
medallion with you. It has your firm’s mark on it”. Braithwaite
remarks, “Yes, our firm has been in business since 1781. We’ve
made most of your family’s jewelry”. Barnabas asks, “Mind if I
bring it over for you to take a look at it?…” While Barnabas’
back is turned, David takes the medallion and hides it behind his
dartboard. Barnabas finishes his telephone call. He comes back
to the desk and, finding the medallion missing, accuses David of
stealing it. David denies it. Barnabas points out, “It must
have been you. You were the only other person in the room”. David
denies taking it and to prove he doesn’t have the medallion, empties
the contents of his pockets onto the desk. The medallion isn’t among
them. Barnabas apoligizes to David for accusing him, then wonders,
“What could have happened to it?” David points out, “A lot of
strange thinks happen in this house”. As Barnabas searches for the
medallion, David takes his dartboard – and the medallion – and leaves.
Barnabas goes to Braithwaite’s jewelry shop in town.
Braithwaite is a very old man. Having lost the medallion,
Barnabas shows Braithwaite a drawing of it instead and
asks him, “I’d like to know who had it made”. At first the
jeweler says, “I have a memory…”, the memory fades immediately.
Barnbas begs, “It’s vital. A friend and I…it means a great deal
to us. Now, could you consult your records? Just from my family’s
accounts. I’m sure it was made for our family. It was found
on Collins property”. Braithwaite complains, “Our records
go back a long way!”, but Barnabas tells him, “You won’t have
to look through all of them, just those for the Victorian period.
I’m pretty sure that’s when it was made”. Braithwaite agrees to
look, but tells Barnabas he’s too busy to do so now and will do it
later after the shop closes. Barnabas tells him, “I’ll be at
Collinwood tonight. If you find it tonight, call me there”.
At Collinwood, Carolyn and Chris are preparing to go out on
a date. Barnabas comes into the room, saying, “Don’t let me
bother you two. I just came in to get the newspaper”. Carolyn
leaves to get her coat. Chris asks, “Learned anything about the
medallion yet?” Barnabas replies, “No. I’ll tell you as soon as
I do”. Carolyn returns with her coat, and she and Chris leaves.
Barnabas sits down and reads the paper. David comes into the
room and asks, “Did that medallion cost a lot of money?”
Barnabas replies, “I don’t think so”. David says, “Oh, I thought
it did. You seemed very upset you lost it”. Barnabas replies,
“It meant a lot to me personally”, then says, “Oh, David. Tell
Mrs. Johnson I might be getting a phone call tonight from Mr.
Braithwaite the jeweller. I’ll be in your father’s study. Tell
her to tell me if the call comes” and leaves.
Braithwaite, reading an entry in a ledger, exclaims
“Oh God! How could I have forgotten that?!”, and telephones
Collinwood. David answers the phone. Braithwaite asks, “Mr.
Barnabas Collins?” David replies, “No, this is David Collins”.
Braithwaite says, “Tell Mr. Barnabas Collins that I have the
information he was looking for! I’m driving past Collinwood
on my way home. Tell him I’ll drop by and give it to him”.
The ghost of Quentin appears, grabs the receiver from David and
listens. Braithwaite continues speaking, saying, “I’ll bring the
ledger too. It has the name of the purchaser of the medallion
in it. I don’t know how I could have forgotten it! It was one of
the first pieces I ever made myself! I’ll be by soon!” and hangs
up. David complains to Quentin, “You had no right to do that!”
Quentin stares menacingly. David, frightened, backs up the
stairs. He tells Quentin, “I’ve got tell Barnabas Mr. Braithwaite’s
coming to see him…” Quentin continues to stare menancingly.
David asks, “What do you want, what???”

Quentin telepathically tells David to so something. David
seems reluctant and asks, “Will anyone be hurt by it?”. Quentin
promises that no one will. Amy comes down the stairs. As soon
as Quentin sees her, he disappears. Elizabeth comes down into
the drawing room holding a telegram. She tells David, “Get dressed.
This is a telegram from your father. He says he’s coming back
today. He’s going be landing at Portland Airport. He’s anxious
to see you and wants us to meet him there”. David replies that
he can’t go because he’s got something else planned. Elizabeth
is puzzled and asks, “Is anything wrong, David?”, but David
hurriedly says, “I can’t explain!”, and runs fromt he room.
Elizabeth leaves to get Roger, alone.
David and Amy again discuss the bad situation they’re in with
Quentin and wish they had never found the room. David remarks,
“Some of the things Quentin wants us to do don’t make any sense.
He doesn’t want me to tell Barnabas that Mr. Braithwaite is
coming. Maybe they only make sense to Quentin. He’s doing
something to us, something to us all…”
Amy goes to Barnabas’ room and finds Barnabas packing. She
asks him why he’s leaving. Barnabas explains that he was only
staying at Collinwood to watch over them while Roger was away,
and now that Roger’s coming back, will return to live at the
Old House. Amy asks Barnabas, “Have you ever been afraid of
anyone?” Barnabas replies, “Of course”. Amy asks, “What did
you do?” Barnabas says, “Why don’t you tell me who you’re
afraid of? It would help if you did”. Amy lies, “No one.
It was just a story I was reading. A boy in it was afraid.
I never thought a boy would be afraid before”. She then
remarks, “I wish I could live at the Old House too. This house
is so old and gloomy”.
Braithwaite comes to Collinwood. David answers the door.
Braithwaite remarks, “You must be young David Collins. I never
remember there being a David Collins before. My name is Ezra
Braithwaite, as was my father’s before me, and his father’s
before him. Once you find a name like Ezra, you don’t let go
of it! Now David, that’s a new-fangled sort of name…” David
points out, “No it isn’t! King David, in the bible!”. David
shows Braithwaite to the drawing room. There, Braithwaite sits
down at the desk and takes off the pair of glasses he’s wearing
and puts on a pair of reading glasses. David asks, “Why did you
switch glasses?”. Braithwaite explains that the pair he’s wearing
are reading glasses, for looking at things close up, while the pair
he was wearing when he came were for looking at things at a greater
distances. David asks, “Why don’t you wear bifocals?”. Braithwaite
replies, “I have no use for such modern contraptions”. He then
starts examining some of the things in the room. He picks up a
candlestick, looks at it closely, and announces, “My father made
this! He had a way with candlesticks!”. David, still curious about
the glasses, asks, “Can you see me now?” Braithwaite looks and,
seeing a blurry face, replies, “I can tell someone’s there”, then
tells David, “Go tell Mr. Barnabas I have the records he wants.” As
David turns to leave, Braithwaite picks up a decorative silver
saucer from the desk, examines it, and remarks, “This is one of ours
too. I swear, you Collinses have more silver than the shop does!”.
David leaves the romm – closing the drawing room’s double doors
behind him. Braithwaite picks up another article from the desk,
examines it, and remarks, “No, not one of ours. They must have
purchased this in the city. They would have been better off if
they’d come to us…” He turns his attention back to the ledger
he’s brought with him. Quentin enters the drawing room through the
secret passage and walks over to the desk, where Braithwaite is
sitting looking at the ledger. At first, Braithwaite, engrossed
in what he’s doing, doesn’t notice Quentin. He looks through
the ledger, muttering, “I should have marked it! I should have
known I wouldn’t remember it by the time I got here…Oh yes,
April 16, 1897″. He suddenly notices Quentin standing there.
Braithwaite sees Quentin, but not clearly, as he has his
reading glasses on, and says, “Oh, Mr. Collins! Oh, of course
you’re not Mr. Barnabas Collins. You must be his friend. I’ve
got the information you wanted about the pentagram. I made it
myself. It’s the first piece of silver jewelry I ever made
myself, when I was 15 1/2 years old. I even engraved the
quotation on the back. Now why would someone like me forget
the first piece of silver jewelry I ever made?” He turns to the
ledger and continues, “It’s all right here, in my own handwriting.
It hasn’t improved all these years. It says here, ‘One silver
medallion, engraved with the quotation “To guard you from the
wrath of Cerebrus”, ordered by Miss Beth Chavez and charged
to the account of Quentin Collins'”. Having finished reading
this from the ledger, Braithwaite takes off his reading glasses
and puts on his normal glasses. Now able to see clearly at a
distance, he sees Quentin clearly. At first, seemingly unconcerned,
he nonchalently says, “Why, I know you”. He then thinks a bit and
says, “Yes, you’re Quentin Collins”, still sounding unconcerned.
He thinks some more, then says in a very shocked voice, “But you’re
dead! You’re dead! You’re dead!”.
Upstairs, Barnabas is talking to David, “You must tell me what’s
wrong, David!”. David tells Barnabas, “But Mr. Braithwaite is
downstairs waiting for you!”. Barnabas says, “We can finish our
conversation later. Come.”
Down in the drawing room, Quentin takes the ledger with him
and leaves through the secret passage, closing the secret panel
after him.
Barnabas and David come downstairs and go into the drawing
room. They find Braithwaite sitting at the desk. Barnabas says,
“Mr. Braithwaite”, but Braithwaite doesn’t answer. David remarks,
“He must have fallen asleep”. Barnabas goes up to Braithwaite,
and says, “Mr. Braithwaite…”, touching him gently on the shoulder.
Braithwaite falls off the chair onto the floor. David exclaims,
NO! NO! What’s happened?” Barnabas shouts, “Go get Julia!”.
David exclaims, “He can’t be dead, he can’t be!”. Barnabas
repeats, “Get Julia!”.

It is the next day. Barnabas is pacing around in the
drawing room, looking like he’s waiting for someone. Finally,
Julia comes in through the front doors. Barnabas quickly rushes
out into the foyer to talk to her. Julia tells Barnabas that the
autopsy showed that Ezra Braithwaite died of simple heart failure.
Barnabas is doubtful, remarking, “Janet Findley supposedly died
of heart failure too. Strange that there would be so many cases of
heart failure in the house”. Julia protests, “I watched the autopsy
myself. Mr. Braithwait was a very old man. There was no sign of
foul play…”, but Barnabas insists, “I know Ezra Braithwaite was
murdered!”. Julia asks, “How do you know that?” Barnabas explains,
“Braithwaite had a ledger with him when he came here tonight. David
told me that. Now where is it?” Julia asks, “You mean you think
someone killed him for the book?” Barnabas replies, “That book had
infomation I wanted to know. Braithwaite knew who he had sold the
pentagram to”. Julia asks, “Who do you suspect? Certainly not the
woman! Why would she lead you to the medallion?” Barnabas replies,
“The man Mrs. Johnson and Maggie said they saw. The woman is in
conflict with the man. She wants us to know the secret, the man
doesn’t. But the spirit has a helper. We must make him help us
too…”
The ledger is lying on the roll top desk in Quentin’s secret
room. David, curious as to why the ledger is so important that
Quentin would kill for it, steals it and brings it to his
room, saying, “I have to find out why he did what he did! I
have to!” He starts to look through it, reading, “Accounts,
Braithwaite and Company. January to June, 1897″, but the ghost of
Beth suddenly appears. Thinking she wants to stop him, David
begs Beth, “Beth! Don’t tell Quentin I have the book! I just have
to find out! He’s terrible, Beth! He says he won’t hurt anyone,
but then he does! Don’t tell him I have the book!”, but Beth
motions for him to continue. David asks, “You won’t tell him?
He didn’t send you? You want me to open the book? You want
me to know?” David opens the ledger to a bookmarked page and
finds a line there that reads, “One silver medallion in the shape
of a pentagram, engraved ‘To guard you from Cerebrus’, ordered by
Miss Beth Chavez, paid for from the account of Quentin Collins”.
Quentin’s music starts to play, and David, realizing that Quentin
is in the room, invisible, apologizes for stealing the ledger, then
says, “I’ll do anything you say, Quentin” and tears a page from the
ledger. There’s a knock at the door, and David quickly hides the
ledger under his pillow. He opens the door and lets Barnabas and
Julia in. Barnabas tells David, “There’s something I must know.
You said Mr. Braithwaite had a ledger with him when he came to
the house”. Julia chimes in, “It’s important, David”. David asks,
“Why?” Barnabas explains, “If he had a ledger when he came, someone
must have taken it”. David lies, “I must have been mistaken about
the ledger”. Barnabas asks, “David, did you take the ledger?”
David complains, “You always accuse me!”. Barnabas replies, “You
always put me in the position to accuse you”. David, starting
to become hysterical, shouts, “I didn’t have anything to do with
it, I didn’t!” Roger comes into the room. David shouts, “Father!
Barnabas thinks I took the book! He hates me!”. Roger asks,
“Barnabas, what’s this all mean?” Barnabas tells Roger about
Braithwaite’s death and the missing ledger. Roger remarks, “A
tragedy. Mr. Braithwaite was a craftsman from the old tradition”.
He asks to talk to David alone. As Barnabas and Julia are leaving,
Roger remarks, “All this about an old account book. Really,
Barnabas, your preoccupation with the past has made you lose all
sense of proportion!”.
Roger asks David why he didn’t come to Portland to meet him.
David replies, “A lot of things have happened while you were
away. I knew you and Aunt Elizabeth would just sit in the car
and talk about Vicky and the other stuff, and I’d be bored”.
Roger says, “On the plane back, I was thinking, you and I should
try to be better friends. I hope you’ll want to make the effort.
I will”. David starts to cry. Roger asks, “Why don’t you tell
me in your own words what’s happened here while I was away. I’m
sure you know some things your Aunt Elizabeth don’t”. David
exclaims, “I don’t know anything!”. Roger says, “All right, David.
You tell me when you’re ready to” and leaves. David takes the
ledger back out from under his pillow and returns it to Quentin’s
secret room.
Downstairs in the drawing room, Barnabas and Julia ask
Elizabeth if she has any old family records, accounts or
photos they could look at. Elizabeth asks Barnabas, “Could
you tell me what this is all about? I’d like to know what’s
happening in my own house”, but Barnabas tells her, “Some
things can’t be explained until the end of the story comes”.
He promises to tell her everything when he can. Elizabeth
says, “The storage room is locked. I’ll go get the keys.
I’d also like to look in on David first, if you don’t mind”.
Barnabas and Julia reply that they don’t. Elizabeth leaves.
Julia asks Barnabas, “Exactly what are we looking for?”
Barnabas replies, “A receipt from the jeweller, a photo
perhaps, any kind of clue”. Julia warns, “Whoever killed
Braithwaite will try to stop us…”. They are interrupted
by Roger coming into the room. Roger is very angry. He accuses
Barnabas of mistreating David while he was away, of accusing David
of stealing the ledger with no evidence. He asks, “Maybe Maggie
or Mrs. Johnson put it somewhere”. Barnabas replies, “No, I’ve
already asked them”. Roger asks, “Did you question them until
they cried like you did to David?” He remarks, “Barnabas, you’ve
been reading too many mystery novels…”, then noticing a ledger
sitting right on the desk, continues, “If there’s any mystery at
all. Is that it?” Julia gasps, “It wasn’t here before!” Roger
sarcastically remarks, “You probably just didn’t search the room
carefully enough. If it wasn’t there before, who put it there,
a ghost?” Barnabas looks through the journal, sees that a page
is missing, and says, “Whoever did took something! There’s a page
missing!”. Roger, rolling his eyes in exasperation, says, “I
suppose David is to be blamed for tearing out the page”. Barnabas
says, “I’m not blaming anyone yet”. Roger, now very angry, says,
“Why do you continue this farce? Why do you see a crime where
there is none?” Elizabeth returns with the key to the storage
room. Barnabas and Julia prepare to leave, but Roger tells Barnabas,
“I’d like to talk to you alone” and insists that he stay. Julia
says, “I’ll start”, and leaves with Elizabeth. Roger angrily tells
Barnabas, “I don’t like the way you managed things while I was away.
You’re responsible for getting the children hysterical. You caused
my sister to talk about nothing but ghosts and spirits in the
car on the way back”. Barnabas protests, “It wasn’t me! It was
the seance!”. Roger counters, “You should never have allowed the
seance to take place”, then tells Barnabas, “You will go upstairs
and apoligize to my son. Otherwise, you will no longer be welcome
here!”.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth has taken Julia to the room in the
basement where the photo albums are kept. It is very cobwebby
and dusty. Elizabeth tells Julia that no one has been in this
room for years. She tells Julia to lock the door when she’s
finished and leaves. Julia looks through some photo albums and
finds a picture of the woman who led them to the cottage. It is
dated 1897. Suddenly, the door slams shut. Julia tries
to open it, but finds herself locked in. The window opens,
and a strong wind blows into the room. Julia feels a presence
and exclaims, “Who is in this room? Who? Answer me!”

Frightened, Julia bangs on the door and shouts for help.
The wind stops. Barnabas opens the door from the outside.
Julia tells him what happened while she was in the room
alone, but when she shows him the photo album, the picture
of Beth is gone…
Carolyn and Chris return from a date and go to the drawing
room. Carolyn asks Chris if he believes in marriage. Chris
tells her he believes in it and plans to get married sometime
in the future.
Chris returns to the cottage, where he is suddenly wracked
by werewolf pains.
Barnabas and Julia go up to the drawing room. They are alone
there. They discuss what happened downstairs, and decide that
since the blond woman would have no reason to take the picture,
it must have been the other spirit who did so. The phone rings.
Barnabas answers. Chris tells him to come down to the cottage
quickly. Barnabas asks why, but Chris refuses to tell him on
the phone, just telling him it’s an emergency and asking him to
come quickly.
Barnabas and Julia rush to the cottage. Chris tells them he’s
starting to have the werewolf pains. Barnabas asks, “That’s
impossible! There’s no full moon tonight”. Chris replies, “I
know! It’s never happened before!”. Barnabas asks, “How much
longer before the transformation starts?” Chris replies, “Twenty
or thirty minutes”. Barnabas says, “Good. Then there’s enough
time to get you to the mausoleum”. Barnabas, using Julia’s
car, rushes Chris to the secret room in the mausoleum while
Julia stays at the cottage. The clock reads 1:10 AM.
There’s a knock at the door of Collinwood. Carolyn answers
it. A look of great surprise appears on her face and she exclaims,
“JEFF!! JEFF CLARK!!” The man replies, “I beg your pardon. My name
isn’t Jeff Clark. It’s Ned Stuart”. Carolyn says, “Ned Stuart?
It’s amazing!” Jeff remarks, “It’s obvious I resemble someone you
know”. Carolyn corrects him, “Someone I used to know. He
disappeared some time ago”. Ned Stuart tells Carolyn, “I’m here to
see Chris Jennings. I’m a friend of his from out west”. Carolyn
tells Stuart, “Chris isn’t here”. Stuart replies, “I’ll wait for
him, then”. Carolyn explains, “He doesn’t live at Collinwood. He
lives in the caretaker’s cottage”. Ned asks, “Is he there right
now?” Carolyn replies, “Yes, but he’s probably asleep”. Ned asks
for directions to the cottage. Carolyn gives them to him. She tells
Ned, “I’ll telephone Chris and tell him you’re coming”, but Ned
says, “No! I want this to be a surprise”. After Ned leaves,
Carolyn, not trusting him, decides to call Chris anyway.
The phone in the cottage rings. Julia, not knowing how
to explain her presence there, just lets it ring.
Barnabas returns to the cottage and tells Julia he got
Chris to the secret room in the crypt just in time. They
worry that Chris’ condition has gotten worse, that he might
now turn into a werewolf at any time, not just during the
full moon. They are interrupted by a knock at the door.
They open it. Ned Stuart is standing there. Barnabas
and Julia are speechless. Knowing what the cause of their
shock must be after his experience with Carolyn, he quickly
explains that he’s not Jeff Clark, but Ned Stuart, a friend
of Chris Jennings’ from out west. He tells them he’s looking
for Chris. They tell him Chris isn’t there and won’t be back
until tomorrow. Both Barnabas and Julia seem suspicious of
Ned, just as Carolyn was, and Barnabas mentions to Ned that Chris
has never mentioned him before. Ned replies, “He’s probably
never mentioned my sister either, or the fact that he was
engaged to her”. Julia asks, “The engagement was broken?”,
thinking tha that was the reason for Ned’s visit. Ned replies,
“You could say that. Jennings Chris just disappeared one night,
and my sister was in no condition to tell anyone what happened”.
Julia asks, “You mean she’s dead?”. Ned replies, “Now that would
be the logical conclusion, wouldn’t it?”.

Julia questions Ned further about his sister, but he
refuses to say anything more on the subject. Barnabas and
Julia tell Ned it’s getting late and suggest they all leave,
but Ned refuses to do so, saying he’ll stay and wait for
Chris. Barnabas and Julia tell him they don’t think it’s
right to let him stay there alone and stay too.
In the drawing room, David tries to confront Quentin,
saying, “Quentin! Why won’t you appear to me? I’ve been
looking all over for you! Why won’t you appear to me?
I know! It’s because you’re ashamed to! You promised me
you wouldn’t harm Mr. Braithwaite, but you killed him! You
went back on your word! I had a nightmare last night! Mr.
Braithwaite came out of his grave, pointed his finger at
me and said I was to blame for his death too! I’m afraid,
Quentin! After tonight, I’m not going to do what you want
anymore!” Quentin’s music starts to play. David starts to
say, “It won’t do any good, Quentin! I’m not going to play
the game anymore!”, but quickly becomes possessed again. He
sits down at the desk, uncaps a fountain pen, and begins to
write something.
At 3:00 in the morning, Maggie wanders by and notices David
still awake in the drawing room. She asks him what he’s doing
still awake at this hour. He replies that he couldn’t sleep
and decided to write a story, “A story about a man who was
been cursed by a wicked, wicked woman and turned into a wild
animal sometimes because of the curse and killed people, even
people he loved. One day, he found a secret room and thought he
could escape the curse by hiding in the room. But someone let
him out, someone who didn’t want him to suffer from the curse
any longer. Then the man was killed in the woods by a hunter,
and that’s how he found his peace”. Maggie tells David he has to
go to bed because it’s late, but David becomes angry and runs
out the front door into the woods. Maggie runs after him.
At the cottage, Ned finally decides to leave, saying he
doesn’t think Chris will be back tonight. After he leaves,
Barnabas and Julia wonder if he knows about Chris’ secret.
Maggie is in the woods, searching for David. She runs into
Ned and is, like everyone else, shocked, thinking he’s Jeff.
Ned explains, “I’m not Jeff Clark, as everyone in the area
seems to think. I’m Ned Stuart, a friend of Chris Jennings’
from out west”. He asks Maggie, “What are you doing in the
woods this time of night?”. Maggie explains how she’s looking
for David. Ned tells her he’ll help her search.
Barnabas and Julia return to Collinwood. Julia asks, “Do you
think Stuart knows Chris’ secret?” Barnabas replies, “No, it
seems more like he was trying to get information from us”. Julia
remarks, “It’s strange how Stuart introduced the subject of his
sister, then dropped the subject”. Barnabas replies, “I think his
sister’s the real reason he’s come to see Chris”. Julia asks, “Do
you think Chris killed her?” Barnabas defends Chris, “If he did,
he’s not responsible for what he does when he tranforms”, then says,
“I’m going back to the old house. I’ll be back here tomorrow” and
turns to leave, but Julia finds David’s story on the floor, starts
to read it, and exclaims, “Barnabas! Wait!” She shows the story to
him. They read the story and are shocked to see how much it matches
Chris’ situation. Barnabas exclaims, “David knows Chris’ secret!”,
but Julia, doubtful, says, “It’s probably just a coincidence. How
could he know?”. Barnabas replies that he thinks the spirit told
David. He rushes out to go to the mausoleum to make sure that the
part about someone letting the man out doesn’t happen.
Ned and Maggie, not having found David, decide to give up
and call the police. They hear a noise in the bushes. Ned
pulls out a gun and goes to investigate. When he returns,
he tells Maggie it was just an animal. Maggie is shocked that
Ned is carrying a gun and asks him why. Ned replies, “For
protection – I’ve heard about the attacks around Collinsport”.
David enters the mausoleum, grabs the ring, and prepares
to open the secret door…

But he stops when he hears a voice behind him asks, “What
are you doing here?”. David turns and sees it’s Barnabas.
David tells Barnabas, “I had an argument with Maggie and
came here to hide”. David tells Barnabas he heard sounds
coming from behind the wall. Barnabas asks, “Do you hear
them now?” David replies, “No”. Barnabas asks, “Isn’t it
possible that in your frightened condition you just imagined
it?” David replies, “Yes, I guess so”. Barnabas takes David
back to Collinwood. After sending David up to his room, Maggie
tells Barnabas that David has been acting strangely lately.
Barnabas asks, “How?”. Maggie explains, “He seems almost like
two people. Sometimes he seems like a normal little boy, but other
times he seems like another person, another person who frightens me.
It’s like he’s an empty shell, like all the things that make him
David are smothered by something else, something cold and unfeeling”.
She tells Barnabas, “Maybe I’m responsible, maybe David can’t accept
me as a replacement for Vicky”. Barnabas replies that he doesn’t
think that’s the reason.
Maggie goes up to David’s room and is surprised to find
that he’s still not asleep, even though it’s almost morning.
David begs, “Please don’t leave me alone here!” Maggie asks,
“What’s the matter?” David replies, “I’m afraid! I’m so
afraid!”. Maggie promises, “I won’t leave you”, and asks, “What
are you afraid of?” David replies, “I don’t think I can tell
you”, but Maggie insists, “Tell me what’s been frightening you
the past few days, and maybe I can help you”. David moans, “You
can’t! No one can!” Maggie tells him, “You’ve got to tell someone,
if you keep it locked up inside you, the fear will just grow and
grow”, but David insists, “I can’t, Maggie, I can’t!”.
It is morning. Barnabas goes to the mausoleum to let
Chris out. He asks Chris, “Who is Ned Stuart?” Chris asks,
“Where did you hear that name?” Barnabas replies, “From Ned
Stuart himself. He came to Collinwood last night looking
for you, and Carolyn directed him to the cottage”. Chris remarks,
“So he’s caught up with me at last. He’s been after me for the
last two years”. Barnabas asks, “Why? Does he know your secret?”.
Chris replies, “I have no idea what he knows”. Barnabas asks, “Then
why is he here? Could it have anything to do with his sister?”.
Chris asks, “What did he tell you about her?” Barnabas replies,
“Not much, but from what he did tell us, Julia and I got the
impression she was dead. He told us you were engaged to her.
You don’t seem very surprised to hear she’s dead”. Chris replies,
“I’m not. The memory’s been haunting me for the last two years.”
Barnabas asks, “Did you kill her?” Chris replies, “I must have.”
Barnabas asks, “But you really don’t know, do you?” Chris
admits he doesn’t, “No. But she was the first person to see
the transformation…” He tells Barnabas what happened,
“One day when I knew the full moon would be coming, I told
her I would be going out of town for the weekend. What I
didn’t know what that she was planning a surprise birthday
party for me in my room. She opened the door with her key.
and saw me standing there. She stood there, her arms full of party
things and refused to leave unless I told her why I hadn’t gone out
of town. Then the transformation happened, and I don’t remember
what happened next…” Barnabas remarks, “Then if she was in
the room when the tranformation occured, she must have become
a victim of the werewolf”. Chris sadly agrees, “Yes”, then
says, “I loved her, like I love Carolyn, and Amy. I can’t stay
in Collinsport any longer! The same thing could happen to them!”.
Barnabas begs him not to leave, saying, “You’ve got to stay!
We’ve already found a way to control your violence by putting you
in this room. If you stay, maybe we can find a cure!”, but Chris
replies, “No, not with Ned Stuart here. He’s here to avenge his
sister’s death, and he won’t stop until he does. He came close the
other night. It must have been him who poisoned my whiskey.”
Barnabas points out, “But he said he didn’t get here till last
night”. Chris replies, “Do you think he’d tell you the truth?”
Back at Collinwood, Maggie, seeing that David has finally
gone to sleep, leaves David’s room. Quentin’s ghost then
appears and awakens David. David fearfully tells Quentin,
“I tried to do what you told me to, I tried to open the door
to the secret room, but Barnabas caught me!”, then asks, “You
never told me what was in the secret room. What did you want
me to let out?”, but Quentin doesn’t answer. David tells Quentin,
“You hurt people, and it frightens me when you do those things!”.
Elizabeth awakens and comes down into the foyer. At the
same time, Barnabas enters through the front door. Elizabeth
remarks, “You’re up early this morning”. Barnabas replies,
“I haven’t been to bed”, and tells her, “I’ve come to talk
to David. It’s important. Can we go into the drawing room?”.
They go into the drawing room to talk, but are shocked to find
that it’s been trashed, the furniture all thrown in disarray.
Elizabeth exclaims, “My God! What’s happened?” Barnabas replies,
“I don’t know how this could have happened! I was here not long
ago and there was nothing wrong”. Maggie comes into the drawing
room and is also shocked at its condition. She too remarks that she
was in the drawing room not long ago and it wasn’t like this.
Elizabeth remarks, “You two seem to have had a busy night”. Maggie
tells Elizabeth about David’s running off, and tells her the
children have been acting strangely lately. Elizabeth asks, “Could
they be responsible for this?”, but Maggie replies, “No. I just left
David, and when I checked on Amy at 5 oclock, she was sound asleep”.
Elizabeth remarks, “Well, someone must be responsible”.
Upstairs in David’s room, David tells Quentin, “No, I don’t
want to play this new game! I don’t want to scare everyone from
this house, and I don’t want to live here alone with you, either”.
Quentin glares menancingly at David and starts to approach him.
David, frightened, tries to apoligize, “I’m sorry, Quentin, I didn’t
mean it!”, but Quentin touches David on the left arm and David
starts to scream in pain, “Help! My arm’s on fire!” and starts to
try to put out some invisible flames.
Maggie, walking through the bedroom hallway on the way
to her room, passes David’s room and hears him screaming.
This is followed by the sound of a man laughing. Maggie
opens the door and goes in. She finds David alone in the
room, lying on the floor unconcious.

Maggie goes to David, whose arm can be seen to have been
burned. She tries to revive him. David, at first only
semi-consciouness, cries, “I’m sorry, Quentin! Don’t hurt me!”,
and begs for forgiveness, but then regains full consciousness and
stops. Maggie asks, “What happened? Who was in this room with
you?”. David replies, “No one”. Maggie says, “Don’t lie, David.
I heard you screaming, and a man laughing”. David points out,
“You can see there’s no one in here except us”. Maggie insists,
“But I heard a man laughing”. David lies, “That was just me.
I was just playing. I was pretending to be a man laughing”.
Maggie, not believing him, says, “David, I can’t believe that.
Tell me what happened. Why were you lying on the floor?”
David lies, “I just got out of bed and fell down”, but Maggie,
still not believing him, asks, “Was it Quentin?”. David is shocked
and asks, “Where did you hear that name?”. Maggie replies, “From
you”. David exclaims, “No you didn’t! I never said that name!”.
Maggie tells him, “You did, when you were unsconcious”. David
insists, “It was just a game of make-believe!”. Maggie replies,
“It’s not a game. That burn mark on your arm’s not imaginary”.
David lies, “It’s not a burn mark, it’s just a bruise from when
I fell down”. Maggie tells him, “I didn’t imagine the laugh, and
I didn’t imagine that man I saw in the West Wing. Was that Quentin?”
David becomes very frightened and starts to cry. Maggie asks, “What
kind of man is he? What’s he done to you?” She hugs David and
promises, “I’ll find this man and you’ll never have to be afraid
of him again”, but David tears himself away, exclaiming “You can’t!
No one can!”, and runs from the room.
Outside Collinwood, Ned Stuart is about to knock at the
door when suddenly it opens and David runs past him outside.
Ned goes in. Maggie comes down the stairs into the foyer.
Ned greets her, “Hello, Miss Evan”. Maggie asks, “Have you
seen David?” Ned jokes, “I think that was him running outside.
He was going awfully fast. What does he do, give you the slip about
once a day?”. Maggie tells Ned, “No time to talk to you right now!”
and runs out after David. Ned hears a girl singing. He goes into
the drawing room and finds Amy in there doing a jigsaw puzzle,
singing as she works. Ned asks, “What are you doing?” Amy
replies, “I’m trying to finish this jigsaw puzzle, but I can’t
find the piece that goes there”. Ned asks, “Are you all alone
in the house?”. Amy replies, “No. Maggie is upstairs”.
Ned tells her, “No she isn’t. She just went outside chasing
your brother David”. Amy tells him, “David isn’t my brother.
My brother is named Chris”. Ned asks, “Chris Jennings?”.
Amy replies, “Yes”. Ned tells Amy, “I came here to see Chris”.
Amy asks, “Why?” Ned replies, “I’m sort of trying to solve a
puzzle, just like you are”. Chris happens to come into the room.
Seeing Ned there, he sends Amy away, then tells Ned, “I know it was
you who tried to kill me by poisoning my whiskey!”, but Ned denies
it, saying, “I might end up wanting to kill you, but all I want
right now is the answers to some questions”. Chris tells him, “I
don’t know anything about the death of your sister”. Ned
replies, “Sabrina’s not dead”. Chris asks, “She isn’t?” Ned
tells him, “No, she didn’t. Come see her yourself”. Chris
refuses, “When I left that town, I promised never to go back”,
but Ned tells him, “You don’t have to go back. She’s right here.
I’ve brought her with me. She’s at the Collinsport Inn. Come
see her”. Chris asks, “What has she told you?” Ned replies,
“Nothing”. Chris mutters to himself, “I don’t see how that’s possible.
If she was in that room she must know…” Ned asks, “Why don’t you
come and see her?”, but Chris says, “I can’t”. Ned insists, “Come
see her, just come see her!”
David, in the woods, hears Maggie calling him, but does
not respond. Maggie goes right past him without seeing him.
David turns and is surprised to see Amy standing there.
He asks, “Did HE send you?” Amy asks, “Who?” David replies,
“Quentin”. Amy tells him, “No”. David asks, “Then why did
you come looking for me?” Amy replies, “I heard about you running
from the house and wanted to find out why you ran off. David tells
her, “I’m so afraid! Quentin came to see me this morning. He’s
very angry with me, just because I don’t want to do it”. Amy
asks, “Do what?” David replies, “Do what he wanted me to do.
Quentin’s not the friend we thought he was, Amy! You know what
he wants us to do? He wants us to drive everyone else from
the house, then live there alone with him!” Amy says, “But I
don’t what to live there alone with him!”. David replies, “Me
neither. If I only knew, I’d never have started playing
the game!”. Amy notes, “We can’t stay out here forever”,
and asks David, “What are we going to do?”. David replies,
“There’s only one thing we can do. We’ve got to tell Maggie!
She promised to help!”. Amy, frightened, says, “No, David!
He’ll punish us! I’m afraid!”. David tells her, “We can’t
stay out here forever. We’ve got to go tell Maggie. No
one else understands”. Suddenly, the Quentin appears. Terrified,
Amy exclaims, “Oh, David! Tell him we didn’t mean it! Tell
him not to punish us!”, but David, staring at Quentin, tells
her, “It won’t do any good. Quentin is going to teach us a lesson
we’ll never forget”.
Later at Collinwood, Maggie goes into the drawing room and
finds David, who has returned, and Amy in there. After talking
to them for awhile, she tells David that she’s puzzled that he’s
so different from the way he was this morning. David explains
that it’s just that he’s in a better mood. Amy exclaims,
“I’m finished! I’ve finished the puzzle”. Maggie and David
look at the puzzle. Maggie remarks, “David, you don’t seem
very excited”. Amy remarks, “Boys usually don’t like jigsaw
puzzles”. David asks Maggie, “Are we alone in the house?”.
Maggie replies, “Yes. Mrs. Johnson and Aunt Elizabeth went into
town and won’t be back unti later”. David and Amy tell Maggie
they’re bored and want something to do. Amy tells Maggie,
“I’d like to go outside”, but Maggie refuses to let them
go, saying, “It’s raining outside”. Amy asks, “Didn’t you like
to play in the rain when you were a little girl?” Maggie
tells her firmly, “You’re NOT going outside!”. The children
continue to complain that there’s nothing to do. Maggie asks,
“Why don’t we just sit here and talk?”, but the children are
not very enthuastic about the idea. They asks to play a game
and suggest Hide and Seek again, but Maggie says, “No. Not after
the way you two broke the rules last time”. The children then
suggest Dress Up, and ask Maggie if she’d like to play too.
Maggie declines, but tell them they can play it if they want to,
asking, “Let me see you when you’ve dressed up”. The children
promise, “We will! Be ready for a surprise!” and go upstairs
to Dress Up.
After waiting a long time for them, Maggie goes upstairs
to see what’s taking the children so long. She goes into David’s
room, but finds no one there. She calls for the children, but
there’s no reply. After Maggie leaves, the doorknob to David’s
room turns, the door opens, and something invisible comes out.
Maggie goes to searches for the children, thinking they’ve decided
to play Hide and Seek again. In the foyer, the door blows open.
Maggie close it, then goes into the door under the stairs. The
door to the bedroom hall opens, and something invisible walks
out onto the landing.
Maggie goes into a study we’ve never seen before to see if
the children are in there. They aren’t. Not finding them,
she exits and goes out into a hallway, but sees something
that causes a look of terror to come onto her face and
retreats back into the study, closing the door after her.
The doorknow starts to turn. The sound of a man’s laugh is
heard outside, followed by David’s voice calling, “Maggie, can
you hear us? We know you’re in there!” Amy’s voice chimes in,
“Maggie, why don’t you answer? Why don’t you come out into the
hallway? There’s someone here who wants to meet you!” David
adds, “Yes, and he wants you to meet him too! Why don’t you
come out?” Amy says, “Why don’t you come out? He won’t hurt
you!”

(Maggie is probably sorry she didn’t follow her own advice to
Vicky in the first episode when she called Vicky “a jerk,
J-E-R-K” for being stupid enough to go to work at Collinwood).

David and Amy beg Maggie to open the door, saying, “It’s
dark out here and we’re afraid!”. For some reason, Maggie
does so. David and Amy come in…followed by Quentin.
The children tell Maggie not to be afraid, that Quentin won’t
hurt her, but Quentin pulls out a scarf and starts to approach
Maggie menacingly, the scarf raised ready to strangle her.
The children beg Quentin not to hurt Maggie, reminding him,
“You promised not to! You promised you would only play a
game with her! Please, we’ll be good! We’ll do whatever you
tell us!”. Maggie screams and faints. Suddenly, there’s a scream
from the doorway. It’s Mrs. Johnson, coming into the room.
She sees Quentin. Elizabeth comes into the room right after
Mrs. Johnson, but by that time, Quentin has vanished. Mrs.
Johnson tells Elizabeth, “That’s the man I saw at the cottage!”,
but Elizabeth says, “There couldn’t have been a man in this
room. I came in just seconds after you did, and I didn’t
see any man”. Mrs. Johnson turns to the children and says,
“You MUST have seen him! Tell her!”, but the children lie
that they didn’t see anyone. Elizabeth tells Mrs. Johnson to
take the chidren up to their room. Mrs. Johnson does so.
Up in David’s room, the children, very frightened, beg
Mrs. Johnson not to leave them. David blurts out, “He’ll
hurt us!” Mrs. Johnson exclaims, “So, there IS a man! I’ll
lock you two up here and go and tells Mrs. Stoddard what
you said!”. The children beg not to be left alone, but
in spite of the children’s pleas, Mrs. Johnson tells the
children there’s nothing in the room to hurt them and leaves.
In the study, Elizabeth is trying to rouse Maggie. She
finds the scarf lying next to Maggie. Maggie regains consciousness
and exclaims, “That man!”. Elizabeth tells her, “There’s no man
here”. Maggie insists, “There was! It was that man Mrs. Johnson
saw at the cottage!”. Mrs. Johnson comes into the room. Maggie
continues, “I opened the door! The children…” Mrs. Johnson
interrupts, “The children are all right. They’re upstairs in
David’s room”. Maggie says, “They’re NOT all right! I know what’s
wrong now! They’re POSSESSED!”. Elizabeth asks, “Possessed? By
what?” Maggie replies, “That man! But he’s not a real man. He’s
evil, but somehow, he’s something not real”. Elizabeth asks, “You
mean he’s a ghost?” Mrs. Johnson pipes in, “I knew it! I knew he
was something not quite real when I saw him at the cottage!”.
Maggie says, “Mrs. Johnson’s right! He’s possessed David and Amy,
and he’s got them doing terrible things!”. Elizabeth remarks,
“That doesn’t make any sense”, but Mrs. Johnson says, “It does!
The children were yelling and screaming upstairs that he was
coming to punish them!”. Elizabeth decides to go up and check
on the children.
In David’s room, the children decide they’ve got to tell
someone about Quentin. Suddenly, Quentin appears. The
children tell him they refuse to help him anymore. As punishment,
he temporarily blinds Amy, but disappear when Elizabeth arrives.
She asks the children, “What’s wrong?” At first, the children lie
that Maggie who was trying to frighten them with stories about a
mysterious man, but when Elizabeth says, “I’ve got to go to the old
house to see Dr. Hoffman and tries to leave the room, they become
terrified and beg her, “Don’t leave us alone! He’ll come back
and punish us!” and go crazy. David screams, “We did what you
wanted! Leave us alone!”. Amy screams, “Please don’t punish us!”
They run around the room begging Quentin not to punish them.
Elizabeth exclaims, “My God! Maggie was right! They ARE possessed!”
Elizabeth returns to Collinwood from the Old House. Maggie
asks, “Did you speak to Julia?” Elizabeth replies, “No, no one
was at home”. Maggie asks, “What are we going to do?” Elizabeth
replies, “Call Professor Stokes. He’s our only hope. If anyone
can do anything, he can. Go and call him. His number’s in the
study. I’ll go up and see the children”. Maggie goes to the
study, looks up the number and starts to call. The phone starts
to ring. Maggie begs, “Please answer! Please!” Suddenly, she
notices that the house has become completely quiet, that the sound
of the storm outside have stopped.
Upstairs, Elizabeth is walking back to David’s room.
She too notices that the storm has stopped. She goes into
David’s room. Mrs. Johnson exclaims, “Oh, Mrs. Stoddard! Come
quickly!” Elizabeth finds that both the children are unconscious
and asks, “What happened?” Mrs. Johnson tells her, “I don’t
know. They were both yelling and screaming, then suddenly
stopped and collapsed. It was so unnatural! What does this
mean?” Elizabeth replies, “I don’t know”. Mrs. Johnson
continues, “And it became so silent suddenly, there’s no
more thunder or lightning, and you can’t even hear the rain
anymore”. Elizabeth suggests, “It’s probably stopped”, but
Mrs. Johnson tells her, “No, it’s still raining outside, you
just can’t hear it. It’s as quiet as a tomb. Something’s
going to happen, I know it, somthing TERRIBLE!”. Elizabeth
tries to assure her, “Mrs. Johnson, nothing’s going to happen.
Right now, our only concern is the children…”. But she is
wrong. Suddenly, the room fills with Quentin’s music. Mrs.
Johnson asks, “What’s that?” Elizabeth replies, “Old music.
It sounds like an old record”. Mrs. Johnson asks, “Where’s
it coming from?” Elizabeth replies, “I don’t know, but it’s
getting louder”. David suddenly regains conciuousness and
announces, in a strange monotone, “It’s too late! It’s to
late to be afraid!” and laughs, “HA HA HA HA HA …”. He is
joined by a deep male laugh. The room echoes with laughter,
both David’s and the unseen man’s. Both Eliabeth and Mrs.
Johnson are terrified…

It is morning. Julia comes to Collinwood. Elizabeth
recounts the events of last night to her. She tells Julia
that Maggie claims that the children are possessed by a
spirit and that she believes Maggie’s claim. Julia corrects
her, “They’re possessed by TWO spirits”, and tells Elizabeth
about the blond woman she and Barnabas saw. Elizabeth complains,
“Why didn’t you tell me this before?” Julia replies, “We didn’t
think you’d believe it”. Elizabeth says, “I believe it now”.
Professor Stokes arrives. In the drawing room, he announces,
“There’s been a definite change in here since I was here last.
The very atmosphere in the room has changed drastically…”
At the cottage, Chris receives a phone call from Ned Stuart.
Ned complains, “I’ve been calling you all morning. Where have
you been?” Chris lies, “I’ve been doing some work on the
estate”. Ned tells him, “Sabrina would like to see you now.
When can you see her?” Chris replies, “I don’t know”. Ned
remarks, “You mean you don’t care”. Chris exclaims, “No!”.
Ned says, “You’d better make it soon. She’s getting impatient,
and so am I”. After the telephone call, Chris takes a framed
photograph out of a drawer and looks at it.
In the drawing room at Collinwood, Stokes asks, “Mrs. Johnson
and Miss Evans are both convinced that the children know about
the apparations?” Elizabeth replies, “Yes”. Stokes says, “There’s
a supernatural presence here. I could sense it when we held the
seance here. But it’s much stronger now. Both of the children
exhibit all the signs of possession. Tell me, are there ever times
when they revert to normal?” Elizabeth replies, “Yes”. Stokes
tells her, “Then that means the possession isn’t complete yet”.
Elizabeth asks, “You mean it could be?” Stokes replies, “Yes.
It would mean complete loss of free will”. Elizabeth asks, “What
are you going to do?” Stokes replies, “I won’t know until I’ve
spoken to the children. I’d like to speak to Mrs. Johnson and
Miss Evans as well”. Elizabeth says, “I’ll bring them down here”,
but Stokes tells her, “No, I’d like to speak to each of them in
their rooms alone” and leaves to go up to do so. The phone
rinds. Elizabeth answers. Chris asks, “I’d like to speak
to either Barnabas or Dr. Hoffman”. Elizabeth gives the phone
to Julia. Chris tells Julia, “Julia! I’ve got to see you right
away!”. Julia asks, “Can’t it wait? – Something’s happened here at
Collinwood”, but Chris tells her, “NO! I think it may be an
emergency! I think there may be someone who knows my secret!”.
Julia tells her, “I’ll get there as soon as I can!” Chris looks
at the framed photograph. It is of a beautiful young woman, with
lovely dark hair.
Julia is at the cottage, looking at the photograph. She remarks,
“She was a very pretty girl”. Chris corrects her, “She IS a very
beautiful girl”. Julia protests, “But she’s dead”. Chris replies,
“She’s not dead”. Julia asks, “How did you find out she’s still
alive?” Chris replies, “Ned told me. Not only is she alive, she’s
in town”. Julia asks, “And you think she may know about you?”
Chris replies, “Of course she knows! Didn’t Barnabas tell you
about the last time she saw me?” Julia tells him, “Chris, you’ve
got to think about this rationally”, but Chris replies, “I don’t
have to. I remember what happened”. Julia reminds him, “But you
told us you don’t remember anything that happens after the
transformation, so you don’t really remember what happened”.
Chris points out, “But she was in the room. She must have gotten
out alive, and she must know, too”. Julia asks, “Then why didn’t
Ned go to the police? She must have told him. Why did they come
here instead?”. Chris admits that he has no answer to that. Julia
tells him, “I’m afraid there’s only one way for you to find out”.
Chris says, “If you mean go there and talk to her, I can’t face her
again!”. Julia tells him, “It’s the only way you’ll be able to find
out why they’re here”.
At Collinwood, Elizabeth is alone in the drawing room,
sitting at the desk reading some mail. Behind her, the
secret panel opens. A ghostly left hand comes out, floats
over to the table, picks up a letter opener, and raises
it to stab Elizabeth, who doesn’t see it. Suddenly, there’s
a shout, “Watch out, Mrs. Stoddard!!!”, and the hand vanishes.
The letter opener drops to the floor. Elizabeth looks toward
in the direction of the voice and finds it’s Professor Stokes,
who came into the room just in time and asks, “Professor Stokes!
What’s the matter?” Stokes tells Elizabeth, “You were very nearly
killed”. Elizabeth asks, “How? There was no one else in the
room”. Stokes remarks, “Letter openers don’t move by themselves”
and tells her about the attempted attack. He notices the open
secret passage and asks Elizabeth, “Where does that passage lead?”
Elizabeth replies, “I don’t know. It hasn’t been used in years”.
Stokes tells her, “That’s not true. I suspect the children have
been using it”.
At the cottage, Julia reiterates to Chris that the only way
he can learn what Sabrina knows is to go see her. She picks
up the phone and hold the receiver out to him. Chris pauses,
then takes it and calls Ned Stuart’s room at the Collinsport
Inn.
Ned tells Chris, “Just get here as soon as you can. Both of
us are looking forward to seeing you”. After he hangs up, he
calls out to someone off camera, “Sabrina! That was him! He’s
coming to see you now!”.
At Collinwood, Elizabeth asks, “What makes you think the children
have been using the passage?”. Stokes explains, “Miss Evans told me
of an incident where the children appeared in the drawing room right
after she had found it empty. They must have used the secret
passage”. He tells Elizabeth, “I’ve talked to Mrs. Johnson, Miss
Evans, and both of the chilren. Things are worse than I thought.
Everyone in the house is in danger. Miss Stoddard, I’d like
to perform an exorcism of this house”. Elizabeth asks, “Exorcism?”
Stokes replies, “Let me explain exactly what an exorcism is”.
Julia and Chris arrive at Ned’s room at the Collinsport Inn.
Ned, angered that Chris has brought Julia, says, “I was expecting
you alone! I didn’t expect you to bring anyone!”. Chris replies,
“You didn’t say I couldn’t”. Ned remarks, “So you brought a doctor”.
Chris replies, “She isn’t here as a doctor. She’s here as a friend”.
Ned remarks, “This wasn’t meant to be a social visit” and goes to
get Sabrina. Chris tells Julia, “I don’t know if I can go through
with this”. Julia replies, “It’s too late to back out now.” Ned
brings Sabrina into the room, Chris is shocked. Sabrina is in a
wheelchair. Her face is pale, her once lovely dark hair now
completly white. Her once beautiful face now somehow appears to be
still young, but also old and wrinkled at the same time. Chris
exclaims, “My God! Sabrina! What happened?” Julia looks at
Sabrina and tells Chris, “She can’t answer you. She’s in a state
of shock”. Ned says, “Right, Doctor. She can’t speak”. Chris
asks, “How long has she been like this?” Ned replies, “Nearly two
years.” Julia asks, “Do you know what caused this?” Ned replies,
“If I did, I wouldn’t be here”. Chris asks, “What do you know?”
Ned replies, “I found her one morning like this. She was at your
place to put up some party decorations for a surprise birthday
party for you. You said you were out of town, but I think you
were there. I think you know what happened”. Chris denies this.
Ned says, “Well, someone was in that room. There had been a
tremendous struggle in there. The radiator had been torn from the
wall”. He continues, “All the doctors said there was nothing
physically wrong with Sabrina. She can see and hear. They said
seeing whoever was in the room might snap her out of it. Now, if
you were that man in the room…” He turns to Sabrina and tells
her, “Sabrina, he’s here now. Try to remember! Try!” Sabrina looks
at Chris, stretches out a hand toward Chris, then tries to get up
out of the wheelchair, but collapses onto the floor.

Julia and Chris return to Collinwood. Chris is very upset
at seeing the sorry condition Sabrina is in. Julia invites
him to come into the drawing room and have a drink, but Chris
replies, “No, that won’t solve anything. I can’t think of
anything else but her sitting there like that! She was young,
alive, now she’s a vegetable!” Julia tries to reassure him,
“You’re not responsible…”, but Chris exclaims, “Of course I
am!” and goes out the front doors, very upset. Stokes, who’s
just come into the foyer and seen Chris leave, asks Julia,
“What’s Mr. Jennings so upset about?” Julia replies, “Oh, he’s
having some problems”. Stokes remarks, “That tells me precisely
nothing, which is exactly what you want me to know”, then tells
Julia, “I’m going to need you here tonight”. Julia asks, “Why?”
Stokes replies, “I’m going to exorcise the ghosts from this house,
and you’re going to help me”. Julia asks, “Exorcise the ghosts
from the house?” Stokes says, “I will conduct the ritual itself
outside the house. You will stay inside the house. Let’s go into
the drawing room to talk about this”. Inside the drawing room,
Julia asks, “I don’t know what I can do to help, but I’ll do
whatever you want”. Stokes tells her, “I want you and one other
person to stay in this room…”. Suddenly, he stops and pauses,
then continues, “I will go outside to perform the ceremony…”
As he is talking, he quietly makes his way over to the secret panel,
opens it, grabs David, who’s inside, and drags him out. Julia
exclaims, “David!”. Stokes explains, “I had noticed earlier that
someone had been using the secret passage, so I sprinkled some sugar
on the floor inside. All I needed to hear was the crunch of one
footstep”. David tries to lie, “I was playing Hide and Seek with
Amy”, but Stokes tells him, “David, I think we need to have a
little talk”. David protests, “But we already had a talk this
afternoon!”. Stokes tells him, “Things are different right now.
We’re going to have to have another talk”. David, continuing
his lie that he was playing Hide and Seek with Amy, says, “I’d
better go tell Amy first so she won’t look for me”, but Stokes
replies, “I know you’re lying. You weren’t playing Hide and Seek
with Amy. Amy has been in her room with Maggie for the past
hour. Why don’t you tell us what’s been happening to you?”
David lies, “Nothing!”. Stokes says, “Sit down, David”, sits
him down on the couch and asks him, “Do you know what the word
‘possession’ means?”. David replies, “It’s like someone owning
something”. Stokes replies, “Right”. He pulls a pencil from his
pocket and says, “For example, I possess this pencil, and it does
whatever I want it to. Suppose it stopped doing what I wanted it
to. I could discard it and buy another one, or perhaps I could
become angry and destroy it”. He breaks the pencil in two and asks
David, “Do you understand?”. David replies, “I think so”. Stokes
continues, “I think possession is the cause of all the recent
problems in this house. I think I sense the presence of a man in
this house.” David vehemently denies that there’s any presence in
the house, but Stokes insists that there is. David continues to
deny that there’s any presence in the room; Stokes continues to
insist there is. Suddenly, Stokes suddenly points towards the
window and exclaims, “There he is! By the window!”. David screams,
“NO! NO!” and turns to look, but sees nothing. He realizes that
Stokes has fooled him into admitting that there is in fact a spirit.
Stokes says, “Sorry, David. I had to find a way to come to terms
with you” and warns him, “Right now, the spirit only possesses
you when it suits his needs, but the time will come when he’ll
want to possess you permanently, and when that happens, David
Collins will cease to exist”.
Having returned to the cottage and thought things over,
Chris comes back to Collinwood and finds Carolyn in the garden.
Carolyn, seeing the look on his face, asks, “What’s the matter?”
Chris replies, “I’ve been spending the afternoon at the cottage
thinking things over. I’ve got to leave Collinsport”. Carolyn
asks, “Leave?” Chris replies, “Yes. I’m all packed up and
ready to leave. I’m sorry things didn’t work out”. Carolyn
asks, “Things?” Chris explains, “You and me”. Carolyn asks
him to explain, saying, “Couldn’t this be the one time you explained
things to me?”, but Chris replies, “I wouldn’t know where to start”.
Carolyn remarks, “You never want to make a commitment. That’s why
you keep moving from place to place”. Chris replies, “No, that’s
not it. I just can’t explain”. Carolyn says, “Don’t tell me
you’re doing this because you love me”. Chris replies, “I DO
love you”. Carolyn says, “And I love you. There. We’ve both
said it. I guess the book’s closed now” and leaves, heartbroken.
Julia, who’s been listening, comes outside and says, “Chris, I
hear you’re leaving”. Chris replies, “Yes. I don’t want to hurt
her”. Julia says, “You already have. Chris, you can’t run away
from your problems this way. If you’re leaving to avoid
putting Carolyn in danger, it’ll just be some other woman
somewhere else. Stay here and let Barnabas and me help you”, but
Chris replies that he’s doubtful they can still insists on leaving.
Julia tells him, “If you won’t stay for Carolyn, stay for Amy”.
Chris asks, “What do you mean?” Julia tells him about the evil
spirits. Chris is shocked that no one’s told him about this
until now. Julia continues, telling Chris that there’s another
reason for him to stay, “There seems to be some connection between
the spirits and your curse. If we could only find out what, maybe
we’ll be able to find a cure”. Chris says, “I’ll stay”.
Stokes goes into the drawing room. He finds Carolyn weeping
quietly in there. He tells her to go fetch David. Carolyn
leaves to do so. Julia comes into the room. Stokes tells her,
“I’ve just sent Carolyn to get David. I want you and Carolyn to
watch him very carefully and keep him in this room if he tries
to leave, by force, if necessary. I’m ready to start the exorcism”.
He gives Julia her instructions, “You and Carolyn are to stay in
the drawing room with David. I will be performing the exorcism
outside on the threshhold. You and Carolyn are to keep David in the
drawing room if he tries to leave no matter what happens – by force,
if neccessary. What him for signs that the exorcism has worked.
Look for a marked change. If there is no change, then we will have
failed”. He tells her, “You’ll know if Quentin’s spirit has left
David if David undergoes a marked change in behavior”. Carolyn
comes down with David. The spirit of Quentin, sensing that they
are about to do something against him, starts to throw an occult
tantrum. The house fills with Quentin’s music. Stokes remarks,
“That’s my cue to begin”. Outside, a storm comes up from nowhere.
Stokes says, “Yes, it’s definitely time. Julia, you tell Carolyn
what to do” and goes outside to perform the exorcism.
Outside, Stokes, holding a forked branch by the non-forked
part, starts the ceremony, “Whoever you are, the time has come!
I adjure thee, evil spirit, by the name of the lord of the quick
and the dead, in the name of he who has the power to cast thee
to hell, leave this house!”
Inside, David becomes hysterical, shouting, “He’s crazy! Stokes
is crazy! He’ll kill us all! It’s HIS house, not ours! You can’t
get rid of him! You’ll be sorry!” and tries to get out of the
drawing room, but Julia and Carolyn restrain him. David faints and
the lighs go out.
Outside, Stokes continues the exorcism, “Evil sprits, defilers
of virtue, destroyers of the innocent, cast thyselves from this
house!”
Inside, the music suddenly stops, the lights come back on,
and the storm stops. Julia remarks, “It’s stopped”.
Outside, Stokes too notices that the storm has stopped.
Inside, David regains consciousness and wonders, “What am I doing
in the down here in the drawing room?”, having remembered nothing of
what’s just happened. Stokes comes back into the drawing room.
Julia tells him, “Professor Stokes, I think you’ve succeeded.
David is all right”. Stokes corrects her, “Doctor, IF I’ve
succeeded, he’s all right”. Julia asks, “What do you mean IF?
You have”. Stokes answers, “It appears that I have, but I’ve made
arrangements with Mrs. Stoddard to stay the night here to make
sure”. David says, “I want to go to my room”, but Julia tells him,
“Not yet. Wait for you Aunt Elizabeth. She said she was coming
down to see you when it was over”.
It is midnight. Stokes is in his room for the night. He takes
out a cigarette, puts it in his mouth, then starts searching in his
pockets for some matches. Finding none, he starts searching the
room for some. While looking through the dresser drawers, he is
stunned to see in the mirror not his own reflection looking back at
him, but Quentin’s. Stokes turns around to see if anyone is in
the room, but sees no one. He turns back and sees Quentin’s
reflection still in the mirror. Quentin laughs. Stokes hears a
crackling sound, turns around, and is shocked to see that the drapes
are on fire. He runs to the door and tries to open it, but finds it
locked…

Unable to open the door, Stokes grabs a candlestick and
smashes the mirror. The flames suddenly disappear. Stokes
examines the drapes and finds them undamaged and mutters,
“They were just an illusion, after all”. Roger, having heard
the commotion, comes and bangs on the door and shouts, “Are you
all right?” Stokes replies, “No, I am not!”. Roger shouts,
“Your door is locked!”. Stokes goes and lets Roger in. Roger
says, “I heard laughing, then a crash.” He looks over, sees
the broken mirror and exclaims, “The mirror!”. Stokes explains,
“I’ve just received an ultimatum from the ghost…”. Roger
interrupts, “There are no ghosts! I just agreed to that exorcism
to ease my sister’s mind!”.
Downstairs in the drawing room, Elizabeth tells David,
“You should get some rest. I want you to sleep extra late
tomorrow morning”, but David tells her, “I can’t. There’s
something I’ve got to do”. Elizabeth tells him, “I don’t
want you keeping any more secrets”, but David says, “I can’t
talk to you about his rignt now. Can’t it wait? I just want
to make sure he never comes back”. Elizabeth assures him,
“He won’t. We’ve taken care of that”. David replies, “There
are ways to make sure!”. Elizabeth tries to assure David that
Stokes has taken care of everything and they don’t have to worry
about Quentin anymore. But she is immediately proven wrong.
Quentin’s music fills the room. Elizabeth, frightened, shouts
“Professor Stokes! Professor Stokes!” and runs out of the room
to get Stokes, shouting at David to follow her. But as soon as
Elizabeth is outside the drawing room, the doors slam shut, trapping
David inside. Elizabeth does not notice that David is not right
behind her and continues running upstairs. Quentin materializes
in the drawing room. David screams, “Don’t come near me! Don’t
touch me! Help! Help!”, but suddenly falls silent, finding that
he can no longer speak…
Elizabeth runs up to Stoke’s room and asks, “Professor Stokes!
What does that music mean?” Stokes replies, “It means we have
failed”. Roger sarcastically remarks, “It means the children
are up to some trick”. Stokes asks, “The children! Where are
they?” Elizabeth replies, “David was right behind me!”. But
when she looks behind, she suddenly realizes that David is not
with her. Everyone rushes downstairs. Inside the drawing room,
Quentin, hearing them coming, vanishes. David, completely terrified
now, runs out of the drawing room, and out of the house. Roger
shouts, “David! Come here!” goes after him. The music stops.
Elizabeth asks, “The music, why has it stopped?” Stokes replies,
“Perhaps he no longer has any need for it. There are things we
must do, but first, we must make sure Amy Jennings is all right”.
David reaches the old house and shouts, “He can’t! He can’t
come in here!”. Barnabas asks, “Who?” David replies, “The man
in my dreams!”. Roger arrives and shouts, “So! That’s where
you are! What a fright you gave us all! What do you mean by
running out of the house like that? We’re going back to
Collinwood!” David replies, “I can’t! I’ve been having these
dreams there! I can’t sleep at night! Can’t I sleep here
tonight?” Barnabas asks, “What harm could it do?” Roger
says, “All right, David”, then asks Barnabas, “Are you sure
it won’t inconvenience you?” Barnabas says, “Of course not”.
Roger tells David, “Go to bed soon, and don’t bother Barnabas”,
then tells Barnabas, “Make sure he goes to bed soon”.
After Roger leaves, Barnabas asks David, “Who drove you out
of Collinwood?”. David asks, “If I tell you, can you promise
to let me stay here forever?” Barnabas replies, “I can’t
promise you that, but I promise to do what I can to help you”.
David starts to reply, “It all started one night when I was
showing Amy around Collinwood…” but then sees Quentin outside the
window and shouts, “It’s only a game! They’ll punish me if I tell
you! I don’t know what to do! I don’t know what to do!” and runs
upstairs.
When Roger gets back to Collinwood, he tells Elizabeth about
letting David stay at the old house and asks if she minds.
Elizabeth replies, “Of course I don’t mind. I should’ve
thought of sending Amy there too. I’m worried about her”.
Stokes butts in, “I’d continue to worry about Amy too, and
you, Maggie, and anyone else staying in this house. There
have already been two deaths here, and I can assure you there
will be more if anyone continues living here. The spirits will
kill anyone who wants to stop them from taking the two children”.
He suggests that the house be evacuated. Elizabeth agrees to
do so, but Roger pooh-poohs the idea, saying, “I’m not going!
This is all a lot of foolishness! Stokes…”. Stokes interrupts,
“I already know your opinion of me, Mr. Collins”. Elizabeth goes
to tell everyone about the evacuation, and Stokes goes up to pack,
leaving Roger alone in the drawing room. As he is pouring himself
a drink, he thinks to himself, “Why do I have the feeling someone
is watching me? No one is! It’s ridiculous!…Over there! By the
window!…but no one’s there. What did you think you saw? I’m
getting as bad as the rest of them!” Suddenly, the doors slam shut
by themselves. Roger thinks, “There IS someone here! There is!”
and calls out, “Who is it? Who is in this room? What do you want?
Who’s there?” Quentin materializes in the drawing room…
The clock reads 2:00 AM. Stokes and Elizabeth come back down
into the foyer. Elizabeth remarks, “I never thought I’d be leaving
this house”, then tells Stokes, “I’ll have to come back tomorrow.
I only packed enough for tonight”, but Stokes tells her, “I don’t
think it would be safe to spend any more time here at all”.
Elizabeth asks Stokes, “How long will we have to be gone?”
Stokes replies, “I don’t know. Obviously, another exorcism will
have to be performed, this time by someone with considerably more
power than I have. Mrs. Stoddard, We must persuade your brother to
go. Elizabeth asks, “Where is he?” Stokes replies, “I think he’s
in the drawing room”. Elizabeth opens the doors to the drawing
room. She finds Roger sitting in a chair, in a state of shock
and exclaims, “Roger! Tell us what happened!” Roger moans,
“I saw him! Here!” He tells Stokes, “You were right!” Stokes
replies, “Mr. Collins, I’m truly sorry I was”. Elizabeth says,
“Roger, you must come with us. We’ll decide what to do tomorrow”.
Roger agrees to go. Elizabeth tells Stokes, “Roger and I will
go in my car. You follow in yours”. Stokes says, “I’ll put the
things in the car” and leaves. Elizabeth remarks, “How quiet
it is now! I could almost believe we were alone”. They leave
Collinwood. Roger is the last to go out the door. Just before
leaving, he calls out defiantly, “We’ll be back! Have no doubt
of that!” then leaves, closing the door behind him. Quentin’s
music begins to play, and fills every room in the house. Quentin
appears on the landing at the top of the stairs and laughs
maniacally.

It is morning at the old house. David is staring out the
window in the living room. Amy comes into the living room
and asks, “David, why are you looking through that window?”
David replies, “You know”. Amy says, “But David, he can’t
come in here. You know that! We won’t have to play the
game again, ever!”. Barnabas comes into the room just in
time to hear Amy talk about “the game”. He asks, “Good Morning,
David. Sleep well?” David replies, “Yes”, then says, “Come
on, Amy. Let’s go”, but Barnabas asks, “Children, what was
that game you were just talking about just now?” David replies,
“It was just a game me and Amy used to play”, and leaves with
Amy. Barnabas looks out the window and sees someone coming up
the walk. There’s a knock at the door. Barnabas opens the
door. It’s Chris. He tells Barnabas, “Barnabas, the weirdest
thing just happened to me. On the way here, I saw a man
standing at the edge of the woods near this old house. He just
stared at me”. Barnabas asks, “What did he look like?” Chris
describes him, “He was very tall. He had long sideburns and
was dressed in old fashioned clothing, a frock coat. I called
to him, but he didn’t answer. When I glanced away for a moment
and looked back, he was gone”. Barnabas remarks, “He’s followed
us to this house! He’s knows where the children are!”.
Barnabas tells Chris about the spirits, and about events of last
night. He tells him, “And now you know as much as I do. The
family’s staying here now. Collinwood belongs to the ghosts now”.
Chris asks, “And what does the blond woman who led you to me
have to do with it?” Barnabas replies, “I’ve looked through all
the old records trying to find out who she was. I haven’t found
anything”. Chris moans, “I feel as though I’m trapped here!
I don’t know what’s going to happen to me from one night to the
next! I should keep moving! Till I get caught…” Barnabas tells
him, “You know you can’t do that!” Barnabas looks out the window.
Chris asks, “Barnabas, what is it?” Barnabas replies, “David!
He’s outside!”. He opens the doors and yells out, “David!
Come into the house, please! You know you’re not supposed
to be outside alone!” David protests, “But there’s something
I have to do!” Barnabas reiterates, “You’re not supposed to go
outside except when Maggie is with you”. Maggie, who has come
down the stairs, sees David outside the door and orders, “David!
Come inside!” David comes inside and complains, “It’s like a
prison in here!” Maggie tells him, “You know I’m going to
give you a test this afternoon. Go study! You have a lot
to do!”. David replies, “All right, Maggie” and reluctantly
goes upstairs. Barnabas tells Maggie, “Chris said he ran into
a strange man outside. He said he was like someone from the
past!”. Maggie asks, “Quentin?” Barnabas asks, “How do you know
that name?” Maggie explains how she heard David say it when
she found him lying semi-conscious on the floor of his room one
day. Barnabas tells her, “There WAS as Quentin Collins! I read
about him last night. There must be a connection!” He leads
Maggie and Chris over to an old photo album sitting on a table and
tells them, “Look through this and see if you can find the man you
saw”. While Maggie and Chris are looking through the photo album ,
Barnabas reads from another book, “Quentin Collins, born in 1870,
year of death unknown”. Chris exclaims, “Here he is!” Maggie agrees,
“Yes, Barnabas, look!” Barnabas looks and reads the caption written
under the photograph, “Quentin Collins, just before he left for
Paris”. He asks, “Was the man you two saw any older than this?”
Both Maggie and Chris say he wasn’t. Barnabas remarks, “Then
he must have died shortly after going to Paris”. He wonders,
“Why is his spirit haunting Collinwood now? Why has he decided
to possess the children? Why?”
Meanwhile, David, despite orders not to do so, has snuck
out and has arrived outside the door to Collinwood. A voice
exclaims, “David!”. David turns and sees Amy there. He asks,
“What are you following me around for?” Amy tells him, “You
know you’re not supposed to go in there! You said you didn’t
want to play the game anymore!”. David replies, “I have to go
in there!”. Amy warns him, “But Quentin’s in there! He won’t
let you come out again! Remember how mean Quentin is? Remember
how much you hate him?” David repeats, “I’ve got to go in there!”
and opens the door. Amy begs, “No, David, NO! Don’t, David,
please don’t!” David again says, “I’ve got to go in there”.
Amy asks, “Why?” David asks, “Remember how we first met Quentin?”
Amy replies, “I talked to him in the phone we found in the storage
room. You want the phone again, don’t you, David? Why? We don’t
want to talk to Quentin anymore”. David explains, “I’ve got to
find it and break it up. Then Quentin won’t be able to reach us
anymore. Last night, I had a dream. The telephone was in my room
ringing. He was trying to get to me through it. It was ringing,
and ringing. If I destroy the phone, he won’t be able to contact
us anymore”. Amy says, “That was just a dream”, but David replies,
“Dreams often tell you the future. I’ve got to destroy the phone!”
Amy says, “I’ll go with you! Beth will protect me!”. David says,
“No! I can’t let you!”, but Amy goes in anyway. She calls, “Are
you here, Beth? Can you help me one last time? I’ve got to go to
Maggie’s room and get the telephone. All right!” David asks, “Is
she really here?” Amy replies, “I think so. I’ll go. She’ll
protect me. Promise to stay here!” David promises to stay just
outside the house. Amy goes upstairs.
Carolyn is at the caretaker’s cottage, looking at a framed
photograph of Chris with Amy. Chris returns to the cottage and
and finds Carolyn there. Carolyn remarks, “When I arrived here,
I expected to find the cottage empty. Then I found this photo
of you with Amy, and I knew you hadn’t gone. I knew you’d
never leave this. The mysterious Mr. Jennings, first he decides
to leave for no discernable reason, then he decides to stay
for no discernable reason. I don’t understand you”. Chris
tells her, “Don’t try”. Carolyn says, “I thought we had a
romance going”. Chris tells her, “You’re wrong”, but Carolyn
insists, “I’m right”. Chris says, “All right, then. We HAD
a romance going. Past tense”. Carolyn asks to talk about it,
but Chris refuses to do so. Carolyn remarks, “The man who
never offers a reason for anything. But there must be some
reason, some reason you won’t tell me. What is it?” Chris
still refuses to talk about it. Carolyn insists, “Tell me.
Maybe if you do, you’ll be able to settle whatever’s troubling
you”. Chris replies, “Maybe there is somthing I’ve got to settle,
maybe it’s something I can only do alone. I’m going to stay,
Carolyn, but we can’t see one another anymore. Sorry, Carolyn,
that’s just the way it’s going to have to be”.
At Collinwood, David continues to wait for Amy. He is getting
worried, and thinks to himself, “What’s taking her so long? She
just had to go to Maggie’s room. What if Quentin’s stopped her?”
He starts up the stairs, but when he is halfway up, Amy comes out
onto the landing and says, “It’s gone, David! It’s gone! The
telephone’s gone! I looked everywhere for it, David, Maggie’s
room, your room, I even looked in Quentin’s room, but I didn’t
find it! What are we going to do now?” David replies, “I don’t
know. I’ll figure out when we get outside”. They go down into
the foyer. The front doors slam shut, appearing to shut them in,
but they are soon opened by Maggie from the outside. The
children quickly exit. Maggie scolds the children for coming to
Collinwood, “You two know you’re not supposed to come here!
What are you doing here?” They tell her they just came to
get the phone, but it wasn’t in her room. Maggie tells them,
“It has to be in there. It was in there when we left last
night”. But she tells them to forget about it, they’re not
supposed to be here and tells them not to concern themselves
with the phone anymore. She asks them to promise not to come
to Collinwood anymore. They promise. Amy tells Maggie she
promised to see Chris at the cottage. Maggie replies, “All
right, I’ll take you there. But you’ve got to make sure he
takes you back to the old house. You’re not supposed to be
out alone”.
At the cottage, Chris is telling Carolyn, “Believe me,
for both our sakes, it’s best if we don’t see each other
any more. Don’t cry”. Carolyn, weeping, says, “Goodbye,
Chris. I hope someday you’ll be able to find someone you
can tell your problems to. I had hoped I would be the one, but I
guess I’m not.” and leaves. Amy comes just as Carolyn leaves.
She asks, “What’s wrong with Carolyn? She was crying. Did
you make her unhappy, Chris?” Chris replies, “Yeah, I guess
I did. But I made myself even unhappier…”
It is late at night at the old house. Barnabas and Maggie
continue to look through old books trying to find information
on Quentin. Barnabas remarks, “It’s astounding how little
information there is about Quentin Collins. It seems very little
of interest happened in his life until he left for Europe. But
then, family histories aren’t always accurate. Nothing here
indicates why he would want to possess the children or drive
the family from Collinwood”. Maggie tells Barnabas, “You must
be tired. You should get some rest”, but Barnabas refuses,
saying, “No, not till I’ve something! Why did he choose
David? He had a younger brother named Jamison who was about
the same age as David, but that’s no reason. Why David?”
Upstairs in a bedroom, David is awakened by a phone ringing
and is startled to find that Quentin’s phone in his room
ringing. The room fills with Quentin’s music. Amy comes in,
saying, “It woke me”. She starts to talk – in a rather strange
way, “I’d forgotten how nice Beth is, and how pretty the music
is…”
Down in the living room, Maggie, tired, says goodnight
to Barnabas and goes upstairs. Barnabas thinks to himself,
“Quentin Collins… When he lived, I lay in my coffin in that
mausoleum. He did not know about me, nor I him. Now I must
discover the secret of his life, but how? How?”
Maggie goes up to check on David. She is shocked to
find that David is not in the room, but the haunted phone is…

Maggie comes down into the living room, carrying the
haunted phone with her. She tells Barnabas, “Barnabas!
Barnabas! The children! They’re gone!” Barnabas asks,
“Have you checked everywhere?” Maggie replies, “Yes! I
checked in Amy’s room, and they’re not there either!” She
holds up the phone and says, “I found this in David’s room.
It means Quentin has sent for them! They’re at Collinwood
with him! It wasn’t here before!” Barnabas asks, “Are you
absolutely certain David or Amy didn’t bring it with them?”
Maggie replies, “Yes! It was in my room when we left
Collinwood. Quentin must have brought it here”. Barnabas
asks, “Quentin communicates with them through it?” Maggie
replies, “Yes!”. Barnabas tells Maggie, “I’ve got to go to
Collinwood to find the children!”. Maggie insists on going
along, but Barnabas tells her, “No, you’d better stay. It’s
too dangerous. We can’t afford another tragedy. You’ll
have to stay, Maggie”.
At Collinwood, Amy is looking for David, from whom she
seems to have become seperated. Quentin appears. Amy looks
terrified. She asks him, “Did you tell David to run away from
me?…Why?…What do you want us to do?…Quentin, where is David?”
She tells him, “Quentin, I don’t want to play the game anymore!
I’m not going to stay here!” But Quentin’s music starts playing,
and Amy appears to fall under his spell again and says, “All right,
Quentin, I’ll do whatever you want”.
At the old house, Barnabas gets Willie and tells him about
having to find the children, who have gone to Collinwood.
Frightened, Willie says, “Barnabas, I don’t want to go there!
Anyway, the children wouldn’t have gone there this time of night”.
Barnabas replies that they would because they are possessed.
At Collinwood, Quentin and Amy come down the stairs, Amy carrying
a powder blue 19th century dress. Amy remarks, “What a pretty
dress, Quentin. You know so many things about this house! Like
that old trunk this dress was in. I’ll bet even David didn’t know
about that!” Suddenly, Quentin motions for her to be quiet. Amy,
puzzled, says, “I didn’t hear anything…”
Barnabas and Willie have just arrived outside the doors of
Collinwood. Barnabas tells Willie, “I’ll search the West Wing
while you search the rest of the house”. But when he tries to
open the front doors, he finds them locked and tells Willie,
“We’ll have to enter through a window”. Inside, Quentin turns
to leave. Amy exclaims, “Don’t leave me!”. Outside, Barnabas
exclaims, “Hear that? It’s Amy! We’ll have to try one of
the side windows!”, but suddenly, the front doors open by
themselves. Barnabas goes inside, but Willie, frightened,
remains outside.
Barnabas, having searched upstairs, comes back downstairs.
Willie, outside, finally musters enough courage to come in
and join him. They go into the drawing room. They find the
dress lying on the floor, but do not see Amy, who’s hiding behind
the curtains. Willie, however, feels something and exclaims,
“Something’s watching me! I can feel it!”, but Barnabas discounts
this as his imagination. They put the dress on the couch and leave
to search the rest of the house. Quentin’s music suddenly starts
playing. As they are halfway up the stairs, the lights come on.
Willie asks, “Why did he do that?” Barnabas replies, “He’s laughing
at us, that’s all”. They go upstairs. In the drawing room, Amy
comes out from behind the curtains. Quentin appears and whispers
somthing in her ear. Amy asks, “Why do you want me to get her,
why, Quentin? She’s our friend! Will you promise not to hurt
her or scare her?” Quentin responds telepathically. Amy
says, “All right, Quentin, then I’ll get her”.
At the old house, Maggie sees Amy outside the window. Amy
runs off when Maggie sees her. Maggie shouts, “AMY! Don’t run
away!” and runs out the front doors to give chase.
At Collinwood, Barnabas and Willie are searching the storage
room where the children first found the phone, Barnabas explaining
to Willie that Maggie once followed David here but found that David
had dissappeared. He theorizes, “There may be a secret passage,
a passage that leads from this room”. They search the room for
one, but do not find the secret passage. They leave. Quentin
materializes in the room, a smile on his face…
Amy runs into Collinwood and into the drawing room. She closes
the double doors behind her. Maggie runs into Collinwood seconds
after. She hears the sound of Amy humming Quentin’s music coming
from behind the closed drawing room doors. She opens the doors
and sees Amy sitting on the floor inside the drawing room playing
jacks. Maggie exclaims, “Amy!”. Amy joyfully replies, “You’ve
come to visit us, Maggie!” Maggie says, “Please come with me!”
Amy asks, “Why?” Maggie replies, “Because you’re not allowed
in this house!”. Amy asks, “How can you say that? I live here!”
Maggie says, “Not anymore!”. Amy says, “Yes I do. David and I
and Quentin live here now. We’re going to have so much fun!
You don’t know what it’s going to be like!” Maggie tells Amy,
“You must come with me!”. Amy refuses, “No! I won’t!” Maggie
asks, “Don’t you know what Quentin is trying to do to you and
David?” Quentin appears behind Maggie. Noticing Amy looking
funny, Maggie asks, “What’s wrong, Amy”, then looks behind and
sees Quentin standing there. Quentin closes the doors and starts
to approach Maggie. Maggie, terrified, demands, “Stay where you
are! Don’t come any closer!” Amy says, “He won’t hurt you, Maggie.
He just wants to meet you”. Quentin continues to approach. Maggie
shouts, “Stay away! Don’t touch me!” Quentin touches her, and
Maggie screams. Upstairs, Barnabas hears this and exclaims,
“A scream!” He and Willie rush downstairs into the drawing room.
There they find Amy drawing a crayon picture of a house on fire.
Barnabas asks Amy, “Amy, where’s David?” Willie asks, “Amy, why
did you scream?” Amy replies, “That wasn’t me” Willie asks, “Then
who was it?” Amy replies, “It was Maggie”. Willie exclaims,
“Maggie?! Where is she?” Amy doesn’t answer. Barnabas tells
Willie to take Amy back to the old house. Amy remarks, “He’ll let
me go now”. Willie takes Amy away. Barnabas thinks to himself,
“I have to find them! But which room?” He boldly announces,
“You won’t take any of them! Not Maggie, David or Amy! I’ll take
them from you!”. Quentin replies by laughing, “HA HA HA HA HA!”
When Willie gets back to the old house, he says to Amy, “You’re
lying! Maggie wasn’t at that house!” and calls for Maggie, but
receives no answer. He wonders, “If she’s not here and she’s not
at Collinwood, then where is she?” Amy tells him, “She’s not
anywhere. She’s not anywhere anymore!”. Willie asks, “What do
you mean?” Amy replies, “You’ll see! You’ll see!”
At Collinwood, the clock strikes 2:00 AM. Barnabas, having
searched the whole house and not found either Maggie or David, is
coming down the stairs, thinking to himself, “Somewhere in this
house, somewhere there must be a room I haven’t searched, a room
I haven’t found. But where?” He prepares to leave, but then
changes his mind, “No! Don’t leave. Stay! Quentin will come
to me! He must!” He opens the drawing room doors to wait there
for Quentin. He is surprised to find Maggie there, dressed in the
old dress, sitting in a chair sewing. He calls, “Maggie!”.
Maggie exclaims, “OH! Who are you?” Barnabas again says, “Maggie!”
Maggie asks, “What did you call me?” Barnabas, puzzled, says,
“Maggie! It’s me, Barnabas!” Maggie says, “I know no one named
Barnabas. Please leave here! Get out, at once!” Barnabas tells
her, “You must come with me! I know what’s happened to you!
You ARE Maggie Evans!”. Maggie replies, “NO! My name… My name
is…” then screams, “AHHHHH!” and faints.

Barnabas shouts, “MAGGIE! MAGGIE” and shakes Maggie back to
consciousness. When she revives, she is back to normal, recognizing
who Barnabas is and knowing she’s Maggie Evsns. She asks, “Barnabas!
What happened? These clothes, where did they come from?” Barnabas
asks, “You don’t know?” Maggie replies, “NO!” She looks into a
mirror, notices her hair is styled in a 19th century style and says,
“My hair! Barnabas, why don’t I remember, why can’t I remember?
What happened to the dress I was wearing when I came here?”
Barnabas asks, “What is the last thing you remember?” Maggie
replies, “I followed Amy here. WHERE’S AMY?!?!?” Barnabas tells
her, “She’s all right. She’s back at the old house”. Reassured
that Amy is all right, Maggie tells Barnabas her story, “I was
trying to take Amy away from here, and he appeared”. Barnabas
exclaims, “Quentin?!” Maggie replies, “Yes. I looked up into
his face. It was so cold and evil! He touched me! His hand,
it was so cold! It made me feel cold all over! He called me
by another name, a name that made these clothes feel right”.
Barnabas asks, “What was that name?” Maggie replies, “I can’t
remember, I can’t remember how I got into this dress, I can’t
remember anything!” Barnabas tells her, “We must find out where
he took you”. Maggie suggests, “Ask Amy! She was here. She must
know”, but Barnabas replies, “She won’t tell us. She’s completely
possessed now”. Maggie says, “We must find David! If he’s done
this to me, what has he done to David?” Roger comes into the room
and asks, “Find David?” Barnabas replies that he hasn’t. Roger
vows, “I won’t leave this house until I do!” Barnabas tells
Roger what happened to Maggie, about his finding her dressed in the
old fashioned dress and how she doesn’t remember what happened
to her. Roger says, “I’m going to call the police!” Barnabas
asks, “And tell them what? That you’ve been driven from your house
by a ghost? They’ll think you mad!” Roger replies, “They’ll search
the house”. Barnabas says, “I’ve already searched the house”.
Maggie begs Roger, “Don’t stay here! Something will happen to you!”
Roger tells Barnabas to take Maggie back to the old house. As
Barnabas turns to do so, he says, “I’ll be back”, but Roger tells
him, “No, I’d rather you stay with Maggie. It’s more important
you stay with her in case she starts to remember something”.
Barnabas takes Maggie and leaves. Roger picks up the phone in
the drawing room and starts to dial. Quentin’s music fills the
room, but Roger defiantly announces, “That doesn’t frighten me!
If you’re in this room, show yourself!”. A book on the desk
mysteriously opens by itself. Roger goes to the desk and finds
a note in the book that reads, “David is mine”. Roger says,
“He is NOT yours! I can’t see you, but I can tell you this:
I will find my son, and I will keep him from you forever!”
By the time Roger returns to the old house, it is morning.
He tells Barnabas, “Every time I picked up the phone to call
the police, the music and the laughter would begin”. Barnabas
asks, “And when the police came?” Roger replies, “They found
nothing”. Barnabas warns Roger, “Don’t go back to that house!”,
but Roger replies, “I must. I phoned Professor Stokes before
I left Collinwood. He’s coming to Collinwood. He might have
some ideas. He as a theory. It seems that when the moon is
full, possessed children are particularly active. There’s a full
moon tonight. He thought perhaps Quentin would show himself to
us” and leaves. Barnabas, reminded that the moon will be full,
thinks, “And the full moon means something else for someone else…”
The clock strikes 4:00 PM. Barnabas exclaims, “Four o’clock!
In a few hours, the moon will rise! Chris!”
The phone at the caretaker’s cottage rings. Chris answers
it. It is Ned. He tells Chris, “Sabrina and I haven’t left.
Perhaps you’d like to know how she’s doing. You’d better be
interested. She’s going to snap out of this and talk! Listen!”.
Ned hold the receiver to Sabrina and tells her, “Sabrina, do
what you did before!”. Sabrina says, “Chris…Chris…Chris…”
Ned takes the receiver and tells Chris, “I want you to come
here right now! Maybe seeing you will help her remember more!”
Chris replies, “I can’t!” Ned asks, “Don’t you feel any
responsiblity for her?” Chris shouts, “I can’t help her!” and
hangs up. Ned assures Sabrina, “He’ll come, and he’ll help us,
or I’ll kill him! You’ll remember, Sabrina, you’ll remember!”
At the cottage, Chris moans, “Sabrina! Sabrina! I want to
help you, but I can’t!”
Chris goes to the old house and tells Barnabas that Sabrina
seems to be starting to remember and tells him, “Barnabas, she
WILL remember! Something’s going to jog her memory and she’ll
remember!”. Barnabas promises to do something about it. The
clock strikes 6:00. Barnabas says, “I’d better take you to
the mausoleum. Perhaps I can persuade them to leave town”. Chris’
werewolf pains start. They rush out.
Roger, returning from Collinwood, finds Maggie sitting
by the fire in the old house. He says, “Good Evening, Maggie.
Feeling any better?” Maggie replies, “Yes”. Roger asks,
“Have you talked to Amy yet?” Maggie replies, “Yes, but she
smiles sweetly at me without answering”. Roger remarks, “So,
she’s still possessed. When we find David, how will he be?
I had to leave Collinwood. I had to get some rest. But someone
else will have to stay there. Perhaps Barnabas”. Maggie tells
Roger that Barnabas isn’t at the old house, that he’s gone into
town. Roger shows Maggie a piece of burnt cloth. Maggie tells him
she recognizes it, that it’s the remains of the dress she had been
wearing when she went to Collinwood and asks, “Where did you find
it?” Roger tells her, “In the fireplace in Liz’s room”. Maggie
wonders, “Who could have done it?” Roger replies, “Whoever it
was, he wanted to erase all traces of Maggie Evans.” Maggie remarks,
Yes, perhaps, Edward, but what kind of person would want to do
that?” Roger asks, “What did you call me?” Maggie, puzzled,
replies, “Edward?! Now why would I call you Edward?” Roger
tells her, “Edward Collins was my grandfathere. Quentin Collins
was his brother. I think Quentin may have been trying to pull
you back into his time! Has he succeeded with David?!”
Barnabas goes to Ned’s room at the Inn. Ned is angry
that it is Barnabas who has come instead of Chris. Barnabas
tells Ned, “You and your sister should leave town. You’re
making things difficult for her by being here. You see,
Chris is in love with my cousin now”. Ned angrily says,
“His life goes on, while Sabrina’s like this! You want to
meet my sister? She was beautiful once”. He brings Sabrina
out and shows Barnabas what she’s become. He happens to put her
by a window, and she stares out at a full moon while Ned and
Barnabas talk. Ned tells Barnabas, “Think your cousin could
end up like this? You didn’t think of that, did you?” Barnabas
says, “Look at her. Can’t you see you’re making things difficult
for her by staying here?” Ned replies, “I’ve got to make her
remember, and if the only way to do that is to stay here, I’m
going to stay here”. Unable to convince Ned to leave, Barnabas
turns to Sabrina and says, “Goodbye, Miss Stuart. Too bad your
brother doesn’t realize how difficult he’s making things for
you”. Sabrina notices Barnabas’ wolf head cane and starts to
react very strongly. Seeing this, Ned exclaims, “Your cane!
Your wolf head’s cane!”, grabs Barnabas’ cane and holds it in front
of Sabrina’s face to give her better look. Sabrina starts
to move her lips as if about to speak. Ned exclaims, “She’s
remembering! She’s remembering!”

Sabrina doesn’t say anything, but the sight of the cane
causes her to have a flashback…
It is two years ago. Chris is in an apartment somewhere
pacing around nervously. Sabrina, young and beautiful with
her lovely dark hair, goes to Chris’ apartment and lets herself
in with a key. She is carrying a bag of things for a surprise
party. She is surprised to find Chris in the apartement,
exclaiming, “Chris! What are you doing here? You’re not supposed
to be here! You were supposed to leave to go skiing at 3 o’clock!”
The clock reads 5:30. She explains, “Ned gave me this key. He
stayed here last summer” and continues, “I was going to give you
a surprise party. Why didn’t you go away for the weekend like
you said?” Chris tells her, “I was going to go, but I got the flu”
and glances nervously at the clock. Sabrina asks, “Why didn’t you
call and tell me?” Chris starts having the wolf pains. Sabrina
says, “That’s a symptom of the flu?! I’ll call the doctor”.
Chris says, “Please go!” and asks her to leave and leave him
alone. Sabrina tries to talk to Chris, but he explodes, “WILL
YOU GET OUT OF HERE??” Sabrina, shocked, says, “All right. Guess
I’ll leave. There’s no point in having a surprise party that’s
not a surprise. Why won’t you let me help you, Chris, why?”
and leaves. As soon as Sabrina leaves, Chris takes out a pair
of leg shackles and shackles himself to the radiator – apparently
what he had been planning to do all along – his story about leaving
town just that, a story. Sabrina, outside in the hallway, changes
her mind and decides to go back to try to talk to Chris again.
She opens the door and is shocked to see a werewolf chained to the
radiator….
Sabrina ends her flashback, screams and loses consciousness.
Barnabas telephones Julia. Julia comes to Ned’s room (#24, the same
one Burke Devlin used to stay in). Barnabas tells Julia what
happened. Julia asks Barnabas and Ned to leave the room to let her
examine Sabrina, who’s by now regained consciousness, in private.
Barnabas and Ned leave the room, Ned reluctantly. Julia asks Sabrina,
“So, what was there about Mr. Collins’ cane that frightned you?”
Sabrina doesn’t answer. Julia continues, “Try to talk. I think you
can now. You couldn’t before, but you can now. Sabrina, you can
talk to me. I’ll do everything I can to help you”. But Sabrina
remains silent. Ned, hearing talking, comes rushing into the room
and excitedly says, “I heard talking! Was it her?” Julia replies,
“No, it was me. I’m in the habit of talking to my patients when I
examine them”. Julia gives Sabrina a short physical examination.
She announces, “She’s all right. The only thing is her blood
pressure’s a little low, but now low enough to have caused her to
black out”. She tells Ned, “I suggest we move her to my hospital…”
Ned says, “NO!”. Julia says, “Windcliff has an excellent staff..”,
but Ned says, “NO! She stays here with me!” Barnabas comes into
the room. Julia takes out a hypodermic syringe and prepares to give
Sabrina an injection. Ned asks, “What are you giving her?” Julia
replies, “A sedative”. Ned exclaims, “NO!” Julia asks, “Why not?”
Ned replies, “She’s starting to remember. I want her to be conscious
in case she does”. Barnabas tells Julia, “I think it would be
best if you stayed and watched over her”, but Ned says, “NO!
I can take care of her myself”. Ned takes out some money and
asks Julia, “How much do I owe you?”, but Julia replies, “I’ll
send you a bill”. Barnabas and Julia both say goodbye to Sabrina
and leave. As soon as they go, Ned asks Sabrina, “What did you
remember, Sabrina? What was it? Look! You’re got to tell me!
I know, Sabrina, it has something to do with that night, something
to do with Chris! Sabrina, please!” But Sabrina says nothing.
Barnabas and Julia return to the old house. Julia moans,
“She knows! She knows!” Barnabas asks, “Then why didn’t she
say anything?” Julia replies, “I don’t know. But she will!”
Barnabas remarks, “What a tragic situation. Ned, using every
bit of money he has to track down Chris. And that girl. He told
me she’s never looked in a mirror since that tragic day. And
Chris…” Julia exclaims, “If Sabrina tells Ned, and Ned
tells the police, we’ll be held as accesories!”. Barnabas
tells her, “We’ve got to find a way to stop Ned from going to
the police!”
In Ned’s room at the Inn, Ned continues asking Sabrina
what she remembers, but Sabrina continues to remain silent.
Finally, Ned decides it’s futile. He tells Sabrina he’ll
give her her sleeping pills to help her sleep, and leaves to
get some water for her to take them. While Ned is out of the
room, Sabrina gets out of the wheelchair, wanders over to a wall
mirror, looks at her reflection and screams. Ned comes rushing
back into the room, pulls Sabrina away from the mirror, telling
her, “Sabrina! You know everything that’s happened, don’t you?
Sabrina! You’ve got to tell me! Sabrina, if you don’t tell me,
I’m going to have to go find Jennings and drag him here! Take a
look in the mirror! That’s what he did to you! Take a good look!”
but Sabrina silent. Ned asks, “You’re protecting him, aren’t you?
You’re still in love with him, aren’t you?”, but Sabrina remains
silent, staring out the window at the full moon. Ned says,
“Stop looking at the moon and talk to me! You’ve got to stop
protecting him!”, but Sabrina still remains silent. Ned vows,
“I’m not going to give up, Sabrina!”
The sun having risen, Barnabas and Julia go to the
mausoleum to release Chris from the secret room there.
Inside the mausoleum in front of the secret door, Julia
notes, “It’s completely quiet”. Barnabas tells her, “That
probably means Chris has passed out. He usually blacks out
after an attack”, and opens the secret door. Staring at
them is a werewolf…

Barnabas quickly pulls the ring to close the door, but
the werewolf manages to grab he edge of the door and hold
it open. Barnabas whacks the werewolf’s fingers a few
times with the silver head of his cane. The werewolf lets
go of the door and it closes. Julia notes that Chris should’ve
turned back into a human being by now, pointing out that the
sun rose 2 hours ago. She tells Barnabas that she’s very
worried, that first, Chris turned into a werewolf when there
was no full moon, now he’s stayed a werewolf well into the
daytime. She tells Barnabas she fears that Chris’ condition
is getting worse, that each time he turns into a werewolf,
he’ll stay a werewolf longer and longer, that she fears
that there’ll come a time when Chris remains a werewolf
permanently and notes sadly, “Barnabas, perhaps the only answer
is to…” Barnabas asks, “To kill him?” Julia notes, “We’re
not even close to finding a cure”. But Barnabas vetoes the
idea and says, “It’s safe as long as we keep him in that room”.
Julia reminds him, “We’re not the only ones who know about that
room”. Barnabas gestures towards the gate and says, “We’ll
have to find a way to lock that door”.
At the old house, Amy goes to see Maggie, who’s staying,
appropriately, in Josette’s room. Maggie asks, “What are you
doing here? You were supposed to stay in your room!”. Amy
replies that she got bored and asks, “Did you just wake up?”.
Maggie replies, “I never went to sleep. I was too worried about
David”. Convinced that Amy knows what happened to David, she tries
to get Amy to tell what she knows, but Amy replies, “I don’t know
where he is.” Not wanting to be questioned, she tells Maggie,
“I’ve got to go back to my room”. But Maggie refuses to let her go.
She tells Amy, “I’ve been thinking. The other night when I saw you
at the window and you ran, you weren’t running away from me, were you?
You were trying to lure me to Collinwood because someone wanted you
to. Who was it? Was it Quentin?” Amy denies that she was trying
to lure her to Collinwood and asks to be allowed to go back to her
room, but Maggie continues, “Don’t you realize that Quentin is a
bad person? He might try to hurt David!” Amy insists, “David will
be all right!” Maggie asks, “Why don’t you take us there so we can
see for ourselves?” Amy exclaims, “I can’t!” Maggie asks, “Don’t
you want to help?” Amy says, “I’d like to help, but if I say
anything, Quentin will do something terrible to Chris!” Julia comes
into the room just as Amy says this and asks, “Why do you say that?
What does Quentin have to do with Chris?” Amy replies, “I can’t say
anything!”. Julia takes Amy away to question her and let Maggie get
some sleep.
After Julia takes Amy from the room, Maggie finally goes
to bed and goes to sleep. She has a dream in which she goes
into the storage room and sees Mr. Juggins, then the hole at
the base of the wall leading into Quentin’s secret room. She
crawls through the hole into Quentin’s room. Quentin appears,
holding the old dress she wore earlier. Maggie exclaims, “I know
who you are! You’re Quentin, aren’t you? Why do you want me
here? Why have you brought me here?” QuentinHe tries to give the
dress to Maggie, but Maggie says, “That’s the dress I was wearing
in the drawing room! You’ve brought it for me? I don’t want it!”
Quentin starts to approach her. Maggie tells him, “Stay where you
are and don’t come any closer!”, but Quentin keeps coming, grabs
her and kisses her, then lets her go and laughs…
Maggie awakens and screams, “Julia! Julia!” Julia comes and
asks, “Maggie! What’s the matter?”. Maggie asks for Barnabas,
but Julia tells her Barnabas isn’t here. Maggie tells Julia about
her dream, telling her that in her dream she was in a room, the
room , which she now remembers, Quentin took her to the other night
at Collinwood, a room she had never seen before. Julia asks her
about it, but Maggie still can’t remember, saying, “I can remember
only two other images of what happened, a dark, long, old staircase,
and Mrs. Stoddard’s room”. Julia asks, “What do they mean?” Maggie
replies, “I don’t know”. Julia says, “Try, Maggie, try to remember
They may be our only clues we have to find David. Go over what
happened last night”. Maggie recounts how she chased Amy to
Collinwood, and being confronted by Quentin in the drawing room,
“I thought he’d hurt me, but he just stood there staring at me”.
Julia prompts her, “Then he took you?” Maggie replies, “Yes,
up an old staircase, then I was in Mrs. Stoddard’s room”. Julia
asks, “With Quentin?” Maggie replies, “No, all alone. I had
a strange feeling. I knew it was Mrs. Stoddard’s room, but for
some reason, I thought of it as mine. Then I left the room,
drawn, pulled, somewhere else. Down a long corridor to the
West Wing. To a room. For some reason, a room I can’t see
clearly in my mind. I remember seeing a figure standing there
and thinking for some reason, “He’s caught us!” But then I
saw that it wasn’t a man. It was a tailor’s dummy with a
painted on face. Mr. Juggins! We’ve got to go to Collinwood!
I remember where it was! It was the storage room in the West
Wing, and there’s an adjoining room none of us ever knew
existed! That’s where David must be! We’ve got to go there!”
But Julia tells her, “It’s too dangerous. I’ll go find Barnabas”
Unknown to them, Amy has been eavesdropping on them outside the
door…
Barnabas, goes to the mausoleum, listens at the secret door
and hears a low growling inside. Chris has still not changed
back. Julia comes rushing in to the mausoleum and tells
Barnabas, “Barnabas! I’m glad I found you! Maggie’s remembered
what happened to her the night before last! She thinks she knows
where David is!”
Amy goes to the storage room. She pulls the box hiding the
secret panel, takes a crowbar and starts to open the panel.
Barnabas and Julia return to the old house. Barnabas calls
“Maggie?”, and receiving no answer, goes into Josette’s room
and is surprised to find that Maggie isn’t there. Barnabas
remarks, “I hope she didn’t go to Collinwood alone! I’d better
go find her!”, but Maggie comes back to the room. Julia asks,
“Where were you?” Maggie replies, “I couldn’t find Amy!”.
Julia volunteers to go find Amy and leaves to do so. Barnabas
tells Maggie, “I’m puzzled. Willie and I searched that storage
room the other night. We found no secret entrance”. Maggie
replies, “Someone must have covered it up!”. Barnabas says, “All
right. Let’s go and look”.
Amy goes into the hidden room to find David. She calls out,
“David, are you here? David, there’s something important I’ve
got to tell you! Please answer me!” A hand touches her on
the shoulder. She turns and sees Quentin standing there.
Amy, frightened, lies, “Quentin! I only came to warn you!”
and tells him, “I came to tell you Maggie and Barnabas are on
their way! They know about this room! They think David’s
in here! Please don’t be mad at me!”.
Maggie and Barnabas arrive at Collinwood and start up the
stairs.
Amy tells Quentin, “I didn’t tell them about the room! Maggie
saw it in a dream! Please don’t be mad at me!” Quentin silences
Amy by causing her to lose her voice.
Barnabas and Maggie enter the storage room. They see the hole
in the wall, just where Maggie said it would be. Barnabas exclaims,
“You’re right! There is a passage here! It was sealed up when
Willie and I searched here before”. He notices the crowbar lying
beside the hole, picks it up and says, “Whoever unsealed it used
this”. He starts to work on the upper panels with the crowbar.
Maggie asks, “What are you going to do?” Barnabas replies, “I’m
going to rip off these panels, then go find out what’s in that
room!”

Barnabas uses a crowbar to tear off some additional panels
to allow easier access. He and Maggie enter Quentin’s secret
room. Barnabas asks, “Is this the room you were in?” Maggie
replies, “Yes”. They look around for David, and call for him,
but don’t find him. While they are doing this, they hear footsteps
coming. The door, which they had closed, opens…
But it’s only Professor Stokes. Barnabas asks, “Professor Stokes,
What are you doing here?” Stokes replies, “I was searching the West
Wing when I heard the sound of knocking coming from here and decided
to come and investigate”. Barnabas explains, “That was me, ripping
off the panels that covered the door to this room.” Stokes looks
around the room and remarks, “Interesting room. It looks like
nothing’s been disturbed in this room since the Victorian Era.
We should be able to learn a great deal from this room”. Barnabas
says, “I’m not concerned about this room. I’m concerned about
David”. Stokes asks, “You’ve found no signs of him in here?”
Barnabas replies, “None”. Stokes looks around and notices the
points of a pair of shoes sticking out from behind some curtains.
He pulls the curtains back and finds Amy standing there. She
collapses. Barnabas tells Maggie to take Amy back to the old house.
Maggie takes Amy and leaves. Stokes tells Barnabas, “It’s very
important that we’ve found this room. It will tell us a lot about
Quentin”. He searches the roll top desk and finds a diary and a
number of flat wooden sticks, painted solid black on one side and
black with a white stripe in the middle on the other. Barnabas asks,
“Well?” Stokes explains to Barnabas, “Now I know a great deal more
about Quentin that I did a few moments ago”. Barnabas asks, “What?”
Stokes explains, “Quentin practiced the I-Ching, one of the
oldest forms of diviniation in the world. Also one of the most
dangerous”. Barnabas asks, “Most dangerous? Why?” Stokes
replies, “Because so little is known about it. Even Confucius
knew little about it. I’ll be able to tell you more after I’ve
studied this journal”.
At the old house, Amy regains consciousness. Maggie asks, “Amy!
How are you feeling?” Amy says, “Professor Stokes was wrong!
David IS at Collinwood!”. Maggie tells her, “I’ll get Barnabas
and Julia!”, but Amy tells her, “NO! They won’t find him. They
want YOU to find him. You’ve got to go soon, or David won’t be
there anymore. Only Jamison. That’s who Quentin wants David
to be. David is going to die!”
Barnabas and Stokes return to the old house. Stokes has
with him the journal and the sticks. He takes them down into a
room in the cellar and puts them on a table. He tells Barnabas,
“I’d prefer to be left alone, if you don’t mind”. Barnabas
asks, “How long do you need?” Stokes replies, “An hour or
two should tell me how Quentin Collins used he I-Ching, and
I’ll be able to decide on a course of action”. Barnabas leaves
and Stokes begins to study the journal.
Maggie goes to Collinwood and searches for David, but cannot
find him. She goes back down to the foyer and puts her head
against the wall in despair. Suddenly, she hears a voice
call, “Maggie!”. She looks up and sees David standing on the
landing. She exclaims, “David!”. David tells her, “Maggie,
don’t come up here, please!” Maggie tells him, “I’ve come to
take you away. Don’t you want to come with me?” David replies,
“Yes, but I don’t want you to come up here”. Maggie looks around
and shouts, presumably to Quentin, “I’m not going to let you
keep David!” She turns back to David and tells him, “Come to
me, David! You can if you try!” David walks along the landing
towards the stairs, glancing back towards the door fearfully.
Suddenly, he stops. Maggie shouts, “Quentin! You can’t have
him! He’s not yours to have, and I’m going to make sure he
never will be! I’m not afraid of you! I’m going to take David
away from you!” She tells David, “David, I’m coming up to
get you!” and starts up the stairs, but David shouts, “No!
Maggie!” Maggie tells David, “You don’t belong to him! You
belong with your family! Come to me, David!” David comes
running down into Maggie’s arms. Maggie tells David, “David,
before we go, there’s one thing you must do. You must send
Quentin away. I want you to take one last look through that
door”. David screams, “NO!”, but Maggie tells him, “It’s
the only way you’ll ever be able to be free of Quentin”.
David looks. The door closes. Maggie announces, “David, we’ve
won!”. But Maggie is wrong. David collapses…
Maggie has taken David back to the old house. Julia is
upstairs examining him while Maggie is downstairs in the
living room with Barnabas. She tells Barnabas what happened
at Collinwood, blaming herself for what happened, saying, “I
kept him there too long”. Julia comes down. Maggie asks,
“Julia, how’s David”. Julia replies, “In a deep coma. I did
everything I could to try to get him to respond, but he didn’t.
He’s still possessed by Quentin. Unless we can get him to break
his hold on him, David will die”. Barnabas asks, “How long does
he have?” Julia replies, “A few hours, maybe till morning. If
only we could contact Quentin”. Barnabas tells her, “There may
be a way. Julia, come with me!”.
Barnabas takes Julia down into the cellar and asks Stokes,
“Professor Stokes, this I-Ching you’re studying, how does it work?”
Stokes asks, “Why do you want to know?” Barnabas replies, “I’ll
tell you after you’ve explained it to me”. Stokes explains,
“The I-Ching is a way of freeing the spirit. As you can see,
each rod has two sides, one a solid black color, the other black
with a white band at the center. They are shaken then tossed
to form one of 64 hexagrams. At this point, the subject sits
and begins a period of intense concentration, picturing a door
with the hexagram on it. He must have the willpower to concentrate
on the door until he sees it open inward. When this happens, the
spirit rises from the body and goes through the door”. Barnabas
asks, “Would it be possible to use the I-Ching to contact Quentin
Collins?” Stokes replies, “Beyond the door, anything is possible”.
Barnabas announces that he will try to use the I-Ching to contact
Quentin. Stokes protests, “But it’s too dangerous!” Barnabas
replies, “David will die if I don’t!” Stokes warns him, “There’s
no way of knowing what lies beyond the door!” Julia agrees, “He’s
right. It’s too dangerous”, but Barnabas says, “David is dying!
If there’s any chance, I must try it!” Stokes reluctantly says,
“Very well. Toss the wands on the desk”. Barnabas does so.
Stokes looks at the rods, arranges them in rows, and announces,
“The 49th or Ko hexagram, called the hexagram of change”.
Julia begs Barnabas not to go though with it, but Barnabas says,
“I’ll be all right”. Stokes sits him down in a chair in front
of the table and tells him, “Close your eyes and concentrate
until you see the door with the hexagram on it”. Barnabas does
so. After a while, he says, “I see the door”. Stokes tells him,
“Continue to concentrate until you see the door open away from
you. We must be completely silent until that happens”. Barnabas
concentrates and sees the door open and gasps, “AHHHH!”. Julia asks,
“Will he see Quentin Collins in there?” Stokes replies, “Only he
will know”. Through the door, Barnabas sees a chained coffin…
Julia asks, “How long will he remain in the trance?” Stokes
replies, “There’s no way of telling. You see, right now there
are two Barnabas’, the one we see sitting here, and one by the door.
Julia asks, “You said this was the hexagram of change. Does that
mean Barnabas will change?” Stokes replies, “According to the
book of I-Ching, it means he will change, or be changed. It
depends on where the door leads”. Barnabas moans. Julia asks,
“Can we speak to him?” Stokes replies, “Yes”, and asks Barnabas,
“Do you see Quentin?” Barnabas replies, “He’s not here”. Stokes
asks, “Tell me what you see”. Barnabas replies, “I want to go
through the door, but cannot”. Stokes asks, “Do you see something
beyond the door that frightens you?” Barnabas replies, “The
mausoleum”. Julia gasps, “The mausoleum?!” Stokes asks her,
“Does that mean something to you?” Julia lies, “No”. Stokes
asks Barnabas, “Is there someone there with you?” Barnabas replies,
“No, only the coffin”. Julia exclaims, “Professor Stokes, we’ve
got to stop this!” Stokes asks, “Do you know where the door
leads to?” Julia replies, “No, but we’ve got to stop this before
he’s hurt!”. Barnabas announces, “I’m moving towards the coffin…”
