A shot of the wall clock shows 30 seconds passing. Barnabas tells
Julia to stop the experiment. She does. Adam asks why they’ve stopped.
Barnabas tells him it’s because Carolyn is in danger. Adam becomes
angry, saying, “You told me she wouldn’t be!” Julia unbuckles Carolyn
and gives her an injection. Barnabas asks what the injection is for.
Julia replies that it’s to revive Carolyn. Moments pass, but nothing
happens. Carolyn does not regain conciousness. Barnabas asks how
long the drug will take to revive Carolyn. Julia replies, “It should
have taken effect almost immediately. In fact, Carolyn should have
revived by herself the moment the equipment was turned off”. Adam a
takes Carolyn off the table and says he’s taking her upstairs. Julia
tells him that Carolyn shouldn’t be moved, but Adam replies that he
doesn’t believe anything she says anymore and takes Carolyn upstairs.
Barnabas asks Julia what went wrong. Julia replies that she doesn’t
know, that what just happened is very different from what happened in
the first experiment. Barnabas asks if Carolyn is in danger of dying.
Julia replies, “Maybe”. Barnabas tells Julia that she must go upstairs
and make sure Carolyn does not die, that otherwise, Adam’s fury will
be uncontrollable and there will be a bloodbath at Collinwood.
Upstairs, Adam has put Carolyn in Josette’s room. Carolyn regains
conciousness and asks what happened. Adam tells her the experiment
failed. Carolyn tells Adam that she’s disappointed that he doesn’t
have a mate, but Adam replies that he no longer cares about a
mate, only about her. Carolyn continues to feel sharp pains. She
tells Adam that during the experiment, she had a dream in which she
found herself in a room all alone. Suddenly, the walls cracked and
fell down, and all around was thick fog, and she could see nothing
else. Suddenly, some shapes came out of the fog. They are dead
body parts, all wanting her life. She screams in terror. Adam
assures her, “They’re not going to take your life! I’ve stopped
all that! I’m not going to let them do the experiment again!”.
Carolyn continues to speak for awhile, then lapse into unconciousness
again. Julia comes into the room and asks Adam what happened. Adam
tells Julia that Carolyn was regained consciousness and talked for
awhile, but then lapsed into unconsciousness again. Julia examines
Carolyn and tells Adam, “She is dead”. Adam says, “Don’t say anything
more to me!” and starts to walk out of the room. Julia asks Adam where
he’s going, but Adam just glares at her ominously and leaves.
Julia goes down the stairs to the foyer and sees Adam walking
toward the front doors and calls to him, but he doesn’t answer
and just walks out of the house. Barnabas comes up from the
cellar, apparently hurt, and tells Julia that Adam has gone
to Collinwood to kill everyone there and tells Julia he must
go there and warn them. Julia tells Barnabas that he’s too badly
hurt to go and volunteers to go instead, but Barnabas tells her
its too dangerous and he must go. Julia tells him that in his
condition he will never make it there, that she’ll have to treat
him first. She goes up to Josette’s room to get her medical bag.
She glances on the bed and is surprised to see that Carolyn is

Julia goes back downstairs and tells Barnabas that Carolyn is
gone. Barnabas asks her if she might not have made a mistake in
examining Carolyn, that maybe Carolyn wasn’t dead, but Julia replies
that she is certain she was. Barnabas then says, “Then Adam must
have taken the body”. Julia replies that she doesn’t think so,
that when she left Carolyn and came downstairs, she saw Adam
already leaving the house and he couldn’t have come back to get her
without their seeing him. Willie comes in and announces that
they’ve got to do something about Maggie quickly, that he’s not
going to be able to keep her in the secret room forever because
she’s seen him opening the door and now knows how to open it.
Barnabas asks Willie how he’s keeping Maggie there now. Willie
replies that he’s drugging her every time he has to leave, but
that that won’t work forever, that sooner or later she’ll escape.
Barnabas tells Willie that he has more important things to worry
about right now than Maggie, that the experiment has failed,
that Carolyn has died and that Adam is going to Collinwood to
kill the Collins family. Willie replies, “I don’t think so.
I saw him in the woods on my way to the old house, and he
wasn’t headed for Collinwood. He was just sitting under a tree.”
Barnabas asks if anyone was with Adam. Willie replies, “No.
He was alone”. Willie insists that they do something about Maggie.
Julia agrees to go hypnotize her.
Maggie awakens in the secret room and, seeing that Willie isn’t
there, slides open the secret step and opens the door to go out,
but finds Julia standing outside. Maggie tells Julia that she
remembers everything now, that she knows what Barnabas Collins is.
Julia argues that Barnabas is not evil. Maggie argues that he is.
They argue about this for awhile. Then Julia tries to hypnotize
Maggie. At first, this seems to be working, but suddenly Maggie
snaps out of it and screams, “I remember now!! I remember it was
YOU who hypnotized me and made me forget!” The hypnosis has
failed. Maggie announces, “If I ever get out of here, I’ll tell
the whole world what Barnabas Collins is!”
Julia returns to the old house and tells Barnabas that her
attempt to hypnotize Maggie again failed, that she is doubtful
she will ever be able to successfully hypnotize Maggie again.
Barnabas replies, “It doesn’t matter anymore. With the Collinses
in danger, the only thing to do now is to go to Collinwood and
confess everything to them, Carolyn’s death, the experiment, Adam,
everything”. Julia argues against this, saying that if Adam did not
go to Collinwood to wreck vengeance immediately, he probably won’t
do it at all. She reasons, “What does he really want? To kill the
Collinses? No. What he wants more than anything else is a mate.
He’ll probably think it over and, rather harming the Collinses,
come and demand that we try again”. Barnabas refuses to do this,
saying he refuses to risk another life to bring the creation to life,
and leaves to go to Collinwood.
Barnabas arrives outside the front door of Collinwood. He
starts to have some second thoughts about confessing everything to
the Collinses, but then decides to go through with it. He knocks
on the door. It is opened….by Carolyn!”

Barnabas is so stunned he cannot speak. Carolyn tells him that
she’s all right, that she had just fainted. Barnabas asks her what
she remembers. Carolyn replies that all she can remember is waking
up in her own room at Collinwood. Barnabas asks Carolyn if she
remembers who it was who brought her back to Collinwood. Carolyn
replies that she assumed it was him and Julia. Baranbas leaves.
Outside the door, he puzzles over what’s happened. At first, he
concludes that Julia must have made a mistake when she examined
Carolyn and concluded that she was dead, but then figures that
an experienced doctor like Julia couldn’t have made such a mistake.
Adam and Nicholas Blair in Adam’s room at Collinwood. Adam asks
Blair how it’s possible for Carolyn to be alive. Blair replies
that he’s responsible, that he has many powers. He tells Adam that
they’ll try the experiment again, this time with a woman he’ll supply.
He assures Adam he’ll love his new mate, whom Blair dubs “Eve”, just
as much as he loves Carolyn. Adam replies that he’s doubtful, but
doesn’t really care, that all he cares about right now is the fact
that Carolyn is alive. He tells Blair he wants to see Carolyn.
Blair tells Adam he can, but that it’ll have to be to say goodbye
as he must leave after the experiment. Blair leaves to get Carolyn.
Carolyn comes up to see Adam. She tells him she’s disappointed
that the experiment and tells him she’s willing to try again. Adam
vetoes the idea, telling her it’s too dangerous. Carolyn tells
Adam she’s willing to try again in spite of the danger. Adam is
very touched, but tells her he is going far, far away and must say
goodbye to her. Carolyn tells Adam that she’ll miss him. Adam
asks her to think of him after he’s gone. Carolyn replies that
she will. Adam asks if he can hold her just once before leaving.
Carolyn replies, “Yes”. Adam holds her, then asks if he can kiss
her. Again Carolyn replies, “Yes”. Adam kisses her. He then
says goodbye and leaves.
Adam goes to the old house and tells Barnabas that he has found
a woman to supply the life force, that they will try to do the
experiment again tonight.
In the foyer at Collinwood, Nicholas Blair is talking with
Carolyn. Carolyn tells Blair she’s disappointed that the experiment
didn’t work. Blair tells Carolyn that she can still help Adam,
that she can assist in a ritual to summon a woman who’s been dead
for 200 years to be the life force. Carolyn agrees to help.
Blair takes her takes her to a room in the basement of his house.
There, there is a table with candles on it. Around the table is
drawn a double circle. Blair tells Carolyn that during the ritual,
she must not leave the circle under any circumstances or she may
die, that the woman they are summoning is an evil one named Danielle
Roget, who lived in France during the French Revolution and was
responsible for sending at least 7 people to the guillotine, two
of them from her own family, and later emigrated to Collinsport.
He tells Carolyn, “She enjoys killing. The only reason I need you
for the ritual is to lure her here. She will come for only one
reason – to kill you, and she will, if you leave the protection
of the circle”. They start the ritual. Ghostly screams are heard.
Carolyn panics and prepares to run, but Blair grabs her and tells
her she must remain in the circle. Carolyn faints. The ghostly
figure of a woman appears. Blair asks the ghostly figure if she
wants to live again. The ghost replies that she does not see how
that would be possible. Blair tells her it IS possible and tells
her to appear to him again in solid form here at 3:00. The ghost
replies that she can only hold a solid form for a few hours. Blair
replies that a few hours will be enough. The ghost agrees to appear
at 3:00. She asks if she may kill Carolyn. Blair refuses to let
her do so and orders her to leave. He puts out the candles and
the ghost disappears.
Blair brings Carolyn back to Collinwood and hypnotizes her, making
her forget everything about the experiment and everything that’s just
happened. The clock in the foyer reads 2:45.
Later, at the old house, Barnabas is sitting, wondering where
Julia is and how Adam is going to find a donor. There is a knock
at the door. Barnabas answers it. Standing there is a woman
he’s neve seen before. She comes in and introduces herself, “Hello,
my name is Leona Eltridge. I’m a friend of Adam’s”. Adam comes
walking in after her. He tells Barnabas, “She is the one, Barnabas.
She is the one who will supply the lifeforce for my mate”.

Adam tells Barnabas they are to perform the experiment immediately,
but Barnabas tells him they cannot because Julia isn’t there. Adam
asks where Julia is. Barnabas replies that he doesn’t know, that
he’s looked for her everywhere but hasn’t been able to find her.
Adam orders Barnabas to find Julia. Barnabas tries to question
Leona Eltridge about who she is and why she’s willing to participate
in the experiment, but Adam refuses to let him do so, saying the
woman is tired and needs to rest. He again orders Barnabas to go
Right after Adam takes Leona Eltridge upstairs, Julia comes
walking in through the front doors. With her is Professor Stokes.
Julia tells Barnabas she didn’t know what else to do, so went to
Stokes. Stokes asks Barnabas if he’s gone to the Collins family
and confessed everthing about the experiment to them yet. Barnabas
replies that he hasn’t, that when he went to Collinwood he found
Carolyn there very much alive, that she says she had just fainted.
Julia is surprised, and says, “I couldn’t have made such a mistake!
I’m certain she was dead!”. Barnabas tells Julia and Stokes about
Adam coming with Leona Eltridge. Stokes notes,”‘Eltridge’. An odd
name. I don’t think I’ve ever heard it before”. Everyone wonders
who Leona Eltridge is and how Adam got her.
Upstairs, Leona Eltridge tells Adam to remember what Blair
had told them – that they are not to let anyone know that there’s
any connection between her and Blair. After Adam leaves, Leona
thinks to herself, “If the experiment is successful and I live
again, I’ll kill them all!”
Adam comes back downstairs. Seeing Julia, he says, “Good! Now
we can begin the experiment!”. Julia tells him she must prepare
the equipment first and goes down into the cellar to do so. Stokes
asks Adam for permission to question Leona Eltridge. At first,
Adam refuses, saying the woman is tired, but Stokes insists that
he leave the decision to the woman and Adam agrees to ask her.
Adam goes upstairs to Josette’s room and asks Leona Eltridge
if she’ll allow Stokes to question her. She replies that she
heard about Stokes from Blair and would like to talk to him.
Stokes warns her, “Professor Stokes is very smart”, but Leona
very confidently replies, “Don’t worry. He’ll believe every
word I say!”
Adam brings Stokes into Josette’s room and leaves. Stokes
asks Eltridge how she learned about the experiment and why she’s
willing to endanger herself to help. She lies that she knew
about the experiment because she had known and was in love with
Dr. Lang, and explains that she’s willing to help because she
wants to see his work completed, that she’s not concerned about
the danger because she has an incurable terminal illness and
has only a short time left to live anyway. Stokes asks, “How
did you come to meet Adam?”, but Leona Eltridge complains that
she’s tired and asks him to leave.
Stokes goes back downstairs and tells Barnabas Leona’s story,
saying he doesn’t know whether to believe her or not. Barnabas
replies, “It doesn’t really matter. We’ll have to go on with
the experiment anyway”. Stokes again notes that for some reason
the name “Leona Eltridge” seems strange to him. Suddenly, he
tells Barnabas,”There’s something very important I’ve go to do”
Barnabas goes down to the lab and finds that Julia is almost ready.
He tells her the story Leona told Stokes. Julia remarks that
she doesn’t believe it because it’s too pat and sentimental, but
Barnabas replies that the have to do the experiment whether they
believe it or not.
When everything is ready, Adam brings Leona down. Leona is
strapped to the table. Julia offers her some painkillers, but
Leona refuses, saying she doesn’t like injections abd she’ll be able
to stand the pain. The experiment begins. Leona screams in pain,
but then says, “The pain!” in a strange tone of voice that seems to
indicate she enjoys it. Suddenly, Julia notes that a gauge reads
“50” and exclaims, “That’s way to high!”. Barnabas reports that
Leona’s pulse has stopped. Julia turns off the machines and covers
Leona, sadly remarking, “She’s dead. I don’t like to think about
what we’ve just done”. Adam asks, “What happened? What are you doing?”
Julia replies, “It’s over. We’ve failed”. Adam gets angry and
threatens to kill both Julia and Barnabas. Suddenly, a moan comes from
the bandaged head of the creation. Adam unwraps the bandages and
exclaims, “The eyes are open!!! She’s alive! She’s alive!!!!”

While Adam studies his new mate, Julia agonizes over the fact
that the donor died. Barnabas comforts her, reminding her that
Leona had a terminal illness and had wanted to help in spite of
the danger. Adam suddenly exclaims that there’s something wrong
with his new mate, that she’s breathing and is alive, but just
lies there. Julia tries to prick the mate with a pin to see if
she responds, but Adam refuses to let Julia cause pain to his new
mate. Instead, he tries to talk to the mate and get her to respond,
but she doesn’t. Everyone discusses what went wrong and what to
do. Julia suggests that maybe something’s wrong with the brain
and suggests a brainscan. Barnabas notes, “But you’d have to
take her to a hospital for that!”. Julia replies, “I could
have Windcliff send an ambulance and bring her there”.
Suddenly, the creation groans and starts to move. Adam, Julia
and Barnabas are suprised to find that the new creation, unlike
Adam, can already speak. The creation says, “It’s been a long
time!” and says she’s from another time, another place, but when
asked what she means, says she doesn’t know why she said what
she said. Barnabas tells Eve that it’s impossible for her to
remember anything because she has just awakened for the first
time, that she wasn’t alive before. This upsets her and she tries
to get up, but faints. There is a frantic knocking noise coming
from upstairs. Barnabas goes upstairs to see who it is. It’s
Professor Stokes. Stokes rushes downstairs and asks if the
experiment’s been done yet. He is disappointed to find that it
has. He tells Barnabas he has something very important to
tell him. Julia and Adam take the creation up to Josette’s room
to rest. Stokes tells Barnabas, “I left my proof up in the
drawing room”. They go upstairs. There, Stokes shows Barnabas
a child’s learning toy, a blackboard with magnetized letters which
stick to it. He wryly remarks, “These letters have many uses.
I originally bought them to teach Adam to read. Now there going to
teach us someting”. There are some magnetic letters forming the name
“LEONA ELTRIDGE” on the blackboard. Julia comes down into the
drawing room. Stokes tells Barnabas and Julia to look at the
blackboard. They do. Stokes then rearranges the letters on
the blackboard and reads it, “DANIELLE ROGET, an anagram”. Barnabas
asks who Danielle Roget is. Stokes tells him that she’s the most
evil woman who ever lived, that she was responsible for the deaths
of 12 men in France, but escaped from France to America, where she
was eventually hanged. He tells Barnabas and Julia that he thinks
it was Danielle Roget’s lifeforce that was used to animate the
new creation, and that he suspects that Nicholas Blair is somehow
behind this, saying, “He conjured up Danielle Roger from the depths
of hell to supply the life force!”. He theorizes that the new
creation is therefore evil and suggests that she be destroyed.
Julia is dubious and tells Stokes they’re going to need more
evidence than just an anagram to believe that.
Julia has left. Barnabas tells Stokes he agrees with Julia
that there’s really no proof of his theory, though he admits,
“Maybe it’s because I’m anxious to see Adam leave with her”.
Stokes tells Barnabas he has some feeling for Adam and doesn’t
want to see him hurt by this evil woman. Adam comes down the stairs.
He tells Barnabas that he plans to leave with Eve shortly. Stokes
begs him not to, saying, “Do not be alone with her!”. He explains
his theory to Adam and tells him, “That woman is evil!”, but Adam
refuses to listen to him, getting angry. Stokes tells him, “I’m only
telling you this for your sake”, but Adam angrily replies, “I think
you are not my friend anymore!”.
The new creation awakens. Adam talks to her for awhile.
After Adam leaves, the window blows open. Then the door opens
by itself. Eve argues with what appears to be an invisible
presence, saying, “I remember you! You have come for me! Non,
mon petit! I will now go back with you! I am alive now!
I will never go back!”.

Adam goes down into the drawing room and finds Stokes and
Barnabas there. Stokes tells Adam his theory that Eve is
a reincarnation of an evil woman. Adam tells Stokes, “That’s
ridiculous!” Stokes asks Adam where and how he got Leona
Eltridge, but Adam is refuses to answer, saying he’s tired of all
the questions. Stokes asks to be allowed to speak to Eve.
Adam refuses. Stokes says, “If I’m wrong, you have nothing to
worry about”. Adam reluctantly agrees to let Stokes speak to
Eve, but tells him, “I must talk to her first”.
Adam goes upstairs to ask Eve a few questions. He breaks
the news to her that she, like him, is an artificially created
being. She doesn’t seem to care. He asks her if she remembers
the name “Leona Eltridge”. She replies that she doesn’t. Adam
asks her if she remembers the name “Nicholas Blair”. Again,
Eve says she doesn’t. Adam, convinced that Stokes’ theory must
be wrong, mutters, “You are not what they say you are”. Eve
hears this and asks what it means, but Adam just says, “Nothing”
and leaves the room, letting Stokes and Barnabas in. Adam
introduces them to Eve. Eve asks, “Now I know their names.
But what is mine?” Adam tells her she’s named Eve. He leaves.
Stokes starts to question Eve. He remarks that her use of
English seems to indicate that it’s not her first language, that
he would guess that French was. Eve replies, “I have never heard
of ‘French'”. Stokes asks her if the words, “guillotine” and
“Marie Antoinette” mean anything to her. Eve replies that
“Marie Antoinette” is a pretty name, but aside from that,
neither it nor the word “guillotine” mean anything to her.
Asked about her past, Eve claims to remember nothing. Stokes
asks her about her strange statement that she was from another
place and time, but Eve replies that she doesn’t know why she
said that. Eve asks if she’s going to be staying here at the Old
House. Barnabas replies, “We don’t know yet”. Eve becomes angry
and says, “I’m used to having my questions answered!”. Stokes asks
what the means by that. Eve once again says she doesn’t know.
Barnabas and Stokes, unable to learn much from Eve, give up and
Down in the living room, Adam is with Julia. He tells her he
wants to take Eve and go away as planned NOW, regardless of Stokes’
theory. Barnabas and Stokes come down into the room and tell Adam
he must not leave with his new mate just yet, that nothing she
told them disproved Stokes’ theory. Adam is angry and argues
with them. Stokes again asks Adam where he got Leona Eltridge
from. Adam lies that she came to him, that she told him she
was Lang’s friend. Barnabas tells Adam he cannot take Eve away
with him yet, that Julia has to examine her for a few days.
Julia agrees, saying everthing happened differently from the
first experiment, and she has to observe Eve for a few days.
Adam accuses them of not being completely truthful to him,
saying, “There’s another reason you want her to stay. You want
to see if Professor Stokes is right or not”. Stokes admits this
is true. Adam says, “What will she think when she sees she’s being
watched?” Stokes replies, “If she is innocent, she will think nothing.
But if she is Danielle Roget..” At the exact moment Stokes says the
name “Danielle Roget”, the front doors blow open and the chandelier
begins to shake. Stokes announces that he can feel the presence
of a spirit in the room and asks the spirit what it wants. The
presence does not speak, but indicates its desire by opening
the cellar door, indicating that it wants everyone to go down
into the cellar. They go down and find that the body of Leona
Eltridge is gone. Julia notes, “That’s impossible! Someone’s
been in the drawing room upstairs the whole time since the
end of the experiment! No one could have come down here and
taken the body without being seen!” Stokes replies, “When the
occult is involved, nothing is impossible!” Everyone suddenly
notices that Adam is not with them in the lab. They rush up
to Josette’s room. It is empty. Eve is gone… Barnabas
exclaims, “We must get her back!” Stokes says, “I know one
place they could be”.

Stokes goes to Collinwood and goes to Adam’s room to see if
Adam is there. He finds that he isn’t, so he searches Adam’s
room for clues as to where he might have gone. While Stokes
is searching, David Collins comes in and finds him there.
Stokes lies to David that Carolyn asked him to come here to look
at some old books. David shocks Stokes by saying, “Oh. I thought
you were looking for Adam”. Stokes, shocked, asks, “You know Adam?”
David replies, “Yes. We were good friends”. Stokes asks, “Were?”.
David replies, “Yes. He went away last night and said he was
never coming back here”. Stokes asks David how long he’s known
about Adam. David replies that he found out about Adam a long time
ago, that Carolyn had told him not to tell anyone, that he hasn’t,
and has in fact been bringing Adam books periodically. He tells
Stokes that when he had brought some books to Adam last night,
Adam had told him he’d be leaving forever. Stokes asks David
if Adam had told him where he’d be going. David replies that
he doesn’t remember, that Adam had talked to him about a lot
of things, that the only thing he can remember for certain is
that Adam had told him that he’d be leaving with a new friend
to start a new life somewhere else. Carolyn comes into the
room and tells David to leave. David exits the room, but does
not leave. Instead, he eavesdrops through the door. Inside
the room, Carolyn asks Stokes why he’s there. Stokes replies
that he’s looking for Adam. Carolyn tells him that Adam has
left, that she doesn’t know where he went. Hearing the urgency
in Stokes’ voice, Carolyn asks if Adam is in any danger. Stokes
replies, “He may be”. Outside the door, David hears this and
David goes to the cemetary to look for Adam. Inside the secret
room in the mausoleum, Willie tries to talk to Maggie, but she
refuses to say a word, giving him the silent treatment. Willie
begs her to talk to him. Finally, she demands to be let out. Willie
tells Maggie he has to go to the old house to get some food. Maggie
asks, “Why?”. Willie says, “We have to eat”. Maggie corrects him,
“YOU have to eat”. She tells him she’ll refuse to eat until he
lets her out or dies, whichever comes first. Willie says, “But you
HAVE to eat!”. Maggie replies, “Eating’s one thing you can’t force
someone to do. You could fill this room with food and gorge yourself
to tempt me, but I’m not going to eat!”. He ties and gags her, then
leaves to get food anyway. Unknown to him, David sees him exiting
the mausoleum. When the coast is clear, David goes into the mausoleum
and wonders, “I wonder if Willie was in the secret room. Why would he
be in the secret room? Maybe there’s something in there he doesn’t want
anyone to see. Maybe something HORRIBLE!” He goes into the secret room
and finds Maggie tied up there.
At the old house, Willie, having filled a bag with food, is
about to leave, but there’s a knock at the door. Willie answers
and finds that it’s Professor Stokes. Stokes asks to see Barnabas
and Julia, but Willie tells him that they’re not there. Stokes asks
Willie why he seems so nervous and asks if anything’s wrong. Willie
denies that there is, saying he’s only in a hurry because he has
something to do. As they’re talking, the front door opens by itself
again. Willie says, “Must be the wind”, but Stokes points out, “There’s
no wind. Look at the trees outside, They’re not moving”. The curtains
start moving. Willie, surprised, asks, “How can the curtains be
moving? The window’s closed!”. The chandelier starts moving. Stokes
tells Willie about the spirit that came earlier, and tells Willie
it must be the same spirit. Stokes remarks, “It must be trying to
tells us something, but what?”. Willie panics, shouts, “You figure
it out! I’m leaving!” and runs out the door. Stokes remarks,
“Fascinating! Utterly fascinating!”.
Willie goes back to the Collins mausoleum and is surprised to
find David in there sitting on one of the sarcophagi. Willie asks
David what he’s doing there. David replies that he’s searcing for
a friend. Willie asks who this friend is. David replies, “You wouldn’t
know him”. Willie mutters, “Him…”, relieved that the masculine
pronoun must mean David isn’t looking for Maggie. David continues,
“Anyway, I didn’t find him. I DID find someone else, though. I know
why you’re here. I saw her! Maggie Evans!” Willie exclaims, “You
SAW her?!” David continues, “She told me a lot of things I didn’t
understand. She kept screaming for me to untie her.” Willie screams,
“UNTIE HER?!?!?!?” and opens the door to the secret room. Maggie is
gone… Willie moans, “You shouldn’t have done that, David…”

Willie goes to the old house and tells Barnabas that Maggie
has escaped. They go out to try to find her.
In the woods, Maggie ponders going to Collinwood, but decides
that that wouldn’t be such a good idea since Barnabas might be
there and decides to head for town instead.
While searching the woods, Barnabas asks Willie how Maggie
escaped. Willie tells Barnabas that David had found her and released
her. Barnabas doesn’t believe this and accuses Willie of taken
pity on Maggie and releasing her himself. Willie vehemently denies
this. Barnabas, still disbelieving Willie, asks how David could
have known about the secret room and how to open the secret door.
Willie tells Barnabas that David does know how to get into the secret
room, reminding Barnabas of the time David locked himself in there.
Still headed for town, Maggie thinks to herself that she
can’t go the the sheriff because he’d never believe her fantastic
story and decides to go to Joe Haskell instead.
Meanwhile, Joe is in his room. Angelique is summoning him, but
he is trying hard to resist her. He is successful and does not
go to her, so Angelique comes to him instead, magically appearing
in his room. Joe tells Angelique that it’s not a good idea for
her to be here because someone might see them together. He moans
about what she’s done to his life, how she’s caused him to lose
his job, Maggie, etc. He moans, “I wish I’d never gone to Blair’s
house!”. Angelique says, “You wish you’d never met me, but you
have met me, and nothing can change that now!”
In the woods, Barnabas and Willie find one of Maggie’s slippers
but not Maggie.
At Joe’s apartment, Angelique tells Joe never to resist her
summons again. She then bares her fangs and prepares to bite
him when suddenly there is a bloodcurdling scream. Both Angelique
and Joe turn towards the door and see Maggie standing there. Maggie
has seen them. She faints. Joe puts Maggie in bed and wails, “She’s
seen us! She’s seen us! I told you you shouldn’t have come here!
What are we going to do?” Angelique tells Joe not to worry, assuring
him that she’ll see to it that the situation is rectified and vanishes
into thin air. Maggie regains conciousness and asks Joe, “Who was that
woman?” Joe tells Maggie that he’d like to explain, but he can’t.
Maggie replies, “I DO understand”. Joe asks, “How could you?”
Maggie replies, “Because I’ve been attacked the same way! We’ve
got to get out of town, Joe! We’ve got to get into your car and go
as far away as possible!” There’s a knock at the door. Maggie begs
Joe not to answer it, saying, “I know something terrible will happen
if you do!”. Joe replies, “I’m sorry, but I must open it. I can’t
resist”. Joe opens the door while Maggie cowers in terror in a
Barnabas and Willie, not having found Maggie, return to the
old house. Willie asks Barnabas what he plans to do. Barnabas
replies that he’s going to wait for the sheriff to come to the
old house and when he does, he’s going to tell him that Maggie
Evans is insane. Willie points out that this will never work,
that Maggie will show the sheriff the secret room, and that she
has David as a witness that they were keeping her captive. Barnabas
replies, “If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work. There’s nothing
else we can do”. There’s a knock at the door. It’s Joe. He
tells Barnabas, “I’ve come to deliver a message from Maggie.
She’d like to see you. She’d like you to drop by at her house
whenever it’s convenient for you”. After Joe leaves, Willie
asks Barnabas, “Why didn’t she go to the police? Why does
she want to see you at her house?” Barnabas replies, “I don’t
know, but I’ve got to find out”. They leave to go to the
Evan’s cottage. From the shadows, Joe, who has not left but is
spying on the old house, watches them leave.
At the Evan’s cottage, Maggie is looking at some sketches.
Barnabas and Willie come, expecting the worst. They are stunned
to find that the only reason Maggie asked Barnabas to come
was to ask him if he’d like to have some prelimanary sketches
her father had drawn of him when Barnabas commissioned him to
paint his portrait. She then says to Willie, “You needn’t have
come. I only asked for Barnabas. But I’m glad you came. I
haven’t seen you in such a long time.” Willie says, “How long
has it been since I last saw you? I don’t remember”. Maggie
replies, “Oh, about three, four weeks”. Willie is shocked.
Willie and Barnabas leave. Outside the Evan’s cottage, Willie,
extremely puzzled, asks Barnabas what could have happened. Barnabas
replies that someone must have gotten to Maggie and erased her
memory. Willie asks, “Julia?”, but Barnabas replies, “No, she’s
already tried and failed”. He tells Willie, “Someone’s been
helping me, first with Carolyn, and now with Maggie. It could
only be Nicholas Blair. He’s the only person who’d be capable
of doing it.” Willie asks, “Why would Nicholas Blair want to
help you?”. Barnabas replies, “I don’t know, but it must be all
part of some diabolical plan! What could it be? What could it be?”.

Barnabas tells Julia about Maggie’s escape and loss of memory.
He tells her he suspects Blair is responsible for erasing it
because Blair is the only person capable of doing it.
Meanwhile, Adam is staying at Blair’s house, sitting on a couch.
Blair notes that Adam seems unhappy in spite of the experiment’s
success and asks why. Adam replies that he is depressed because
Leona Eltridge died. Blair tells Adam that Leona Eltridge had a
terminal illness and didn’t have long to live anyway. Adam tells
Blair that Stokes had said Eve was an evil reincarnation. Blair
once again tells Adam not to believe anything Stokes says because
Stokes is in league with Barnabas and is lying to him. Adam tells
Blair there’s something else worrying him, and tells him about the
spirit coming into the old house after the experiment. Blair tells
Adam not to concern himself with that, that his only concern now is
to be Eve’s loving mate. Eve, listening from behind a door, gets
a very angry expression on her face.
Later, Adam is alone with Eve. He tries to tell her that he
loves her, but Eve, speaking to him very coldly, replies that
it’s too early to speak of love, that they’ve only met one another
and hardly know each other. Adam tells her she was created for him.
Eve complains that she doesn’t like him thinking of her as property.
Adam apoligizes, telling her he didn’t mean it that way. He tries
to stroke her hair, but she angrily tells him she needs time to be
alone and to think and orders him to leave. After Adam leaves, Eve
grabs a letter opener and angrily plunges it into a table. Blair
comes in and asks Eve what’s the matter. Eve replies that she hates
Adam, that Adam is ugly, boring and stupid, but that she finds him,
Blair, to the the exact opposite and is attracted to him. She suggests
that they send Adam away so they can be together. Blair points out,
“But he would just come back. We would have to kill him”. Eve tells
him she thinks that would be a good idea. Blair tells Eve he likes
her attitude, that she’s every bit as evil as he had anticipated,
but tells her that she was created as a mate for Adam and will spend
the rest of her life with Adam whether she likes it or not. Eve
angrily refuses. Blair tells her he likes her spirit, but tells her
if she doesn’t follow his orders, he will destroy her.
Stoke arrives at the old house and tells Barnabas and Julia that
he’s checked Adam’s old hiding place and Adam isn’t hiding there.
He then remarks, “I’m still worried about the experiment. If
the lifeforce were indeed Danielle Roget…”. But he does not
get to finish his sentence. Once again at the mention of the name
Danielle Roget, the front door flies open, the spirit again comes into
the house and starts to make noises. Stokes asks the spirit to
identify itself. Julia exclaims, “Look! The bookshelf!” and points
towards the writing desk. Barnabas and Stokes look. The door to the
bookshelf above the writing desk opens by itself and a book falls out.
The spirit leaves and the disturbances stop. Stokes picks up the book
that fell and looks at it. He finds that it’s a history of the French
Revolution written in 1798 by a “Phillipe Goudiet”. Stokes says that
this must be the spirit who has been trying to reach them and says
they must hold a seance to contact him.
They hold a seance. The spirit of Phillipe Goudiet appears
and, speaking through Barnabas in a thick French accent, tells
them that Danielle Roget is his love and was with him in the spirit
world but that recently someone – he does not know who – came and took
her away from him, that she is now in a house by the sea. Julia
exclaims, “Blair’s house!” The spirit, continuing to speak through
Barnabas, announces that he will go to that house and kill the man
who loves his love. The spirit says, “Mon amour! Je viens! (My love!
I am coming!”), then departs Barnabas’ body. Stokes announces, “Our
worst fears have been confirmed. Leona Eltridge is Danielle Roget.
Nicholas Blair summoned the spirit of Daniell Roget serve as the
life force for some purpose we can only guess at. Whatever it is,
we can be sure it’s evil”. Julia warns, “The spirit of Phillipe
Cordiet said he was going to the house by the sea to kill the person
who loved her. That could only be Adam!”.
At Blair’s house, Adam is trying to apoligize to Eve, saying he
was too pushy eariler and will give her more time to get to know
him. Nicholas Blair is also in the room with them. Suddenly, Eve
gets a terrified expression on her face. The door blows open.
Eve screams, “Someone in this house will die! Tonight!” and runs
from the room screaming in terror. The chandelier rattles. Adam
begins to choke.
Simultaneously at the old house, Barnabas begins to choke.
He exclaims, “It’s happening! The spirit of Pierre Goudiet is

Blair uses his powers to evict the spirit and saves Adam.
He tells Adam that the spirit that had been at the old house
had come and tried to kill him, but assures him, “I will make
sure it never happens again”.
Simultaneously at the old house, Barnabas stops choking.
Julia theorizes that that Blair must have used his powers
to stop the spirit from killing Adam. Barnabas tells Julia
that Blair must have some diabolical plan for Adam and Eve
and that they must stop him. Julia asks, “How? Neither of us
are a match for Blair’s powers”.
At Collinwood, Carolyn tells Harry Johnson that she suspects
that Barnabas might have had something to do with Adam’s
disappearance, that if this is the case, Adam might be at the
Old House right now. She pays Harry to go and investigate.
At the old house, Barnabas and Julia continue to discuss what
to do, unaware of the fact that Harry, following Carolyn’s
orders, is outside the window eavesdropping on them. Barnabas hits
on a plan – that whatever Blair’s plans are, Eve must be essential
to the, otherwise, Blair wouldn’t have gone to such trouble to
get her created, that therefore, if they destroy Eve, it will
probably destroy Blair’s plans as well. Barnabas tells Julia that
they must find a way to lure Blair and Adam from Blair’s house,
then go in and kill Eve.
Harry rushes to Blair’s house and tells him he has important
information about Eve which he’ll tell him for $5000 (about $30,000
in 1996 dollars). Blair agrees to pay. Harry tells him that someone
plans to kill Eve. Blair gives Harry $100 bill. Harry complains,
“Hey! This is only $100! You promised me $5000!”. Blair replies,
“You didn’t tell me who’s planning to kill Eve.” Harry tells Blair
that it’s Barnabas who’s planning to kill Eve and asks for his money,
but Blair renegs and refuses to pay it. Harry threatens to go and
tell Carolyn that he, Blair, is harboring Adam. Blair still refuses
to pay. Harry angrily announces that he’s going to Collinwood to
tell Carolyn about Adam, but when he tries to get out the front
door, he finds that it’s lock. He complains, “Mr. Blair! Your
front door is locked!”, but receives no reply. He goes back
into the living room to find Blair, but finds that Blair is no
longer there. He calls for Blair, but receives no answer. He finds
that the living room doors have now closed and are locked too.
A ghostly hand appears and terrorizes him. Finally, having had
his fun, Blair reappears and puts a spell on Harry making him his
Harry, now under Blair’s spell, returns to Collinwood and tells
Carolyn that Adam is not at the old house, that he waited outside
until Barnabas and Julia left then snuck inside and searched the
whole house. Carolyn remarks, “There’s one other place Adam could
be!” and leaves.
At Blair’s house, Adam tells Blair that he is depressed because
things haven’t been going well. He asks Blair when he, Adam, will
be able to leave with Eve and go far away as promised. Blair replies
that they cannot leave yet because things remain to be done, for
example, “These scars on your face have caused you no end of
misery. I’m arranging to have a doctor remove them”. Adam is
overjoyed to hear this. There’s a knock at the door. Blair tells
Adam to hide in another room. Adam does so. Blair answers the door
and lets Carolyn in. Carolyn tells Blair that Adam has disappeared
and asks if he knows where Adam is. Blair replies that he doesn’t.
Carolyn tells him that she’s very worried about Adam and asks Blair
to call her if he hears from Adam, saying she only wants to know if
he’s all right. After Carolyn leaves, Adam rushes out of his hiding
place, telling Blair that he’s got to go and talk to Carolyn, that
he doesn’t want to worry her, but Blair stops him and tells him they
have a much more important problem. He tells Adam that Barnabas is
planning to kill Eve. Adam angrily says, “I will kill Barnabas!” and
starts for the door, but Blair stops him, telling him there’s a better
way to stop Barnabas from killing Eve. Adam asks, “What are you
planning to do?” Blair replies, “Personally, nothing. Go upstairs
and tell Angelique I want to see her immediately!”.

Blair, angry that Barnabas wants to kill Eve and interfere
with his plans, stabs the table with a letter opener and
thinks to himself how easy it would be for him to kill Barnabas,
but cannot because he doesn’t know what killing Barnabas will
do to Adam. He then thinks to himself, “What I plan to do to
Barnabas Collins is almost as delightful as killing him!”. Adam
comes back downstairs and tells Blair that Angelique is not in
the house. He tells Blair that he must go and kill Barnabas, that
it’s his duty to protect his mate. Blair orders Adam not to go.
They have a heated argument about his. Blair tries to tell Adam
he need not worry about Eve because his special powers insure that
nothing will happen to her. Adam scoffs, “Your special powers
cannot even find Angelique!”. Blair replies that he can find
Angelique, and ask Adam to leave to room to allow him to do so,
but Adam insists on seeing his powers, and Blair decides to
allow him to stay and watch. Using the magic mirror, Blair sees
Angelique in Jeff’s Clark’s room standing over a sleeping Jeff
Jeff awakens and sees Angelique standing over him. He tells
her that he can no longer help her as the experiment has already
been completed and the equipment removed from the old house.
She replies that he can still help her. She bares her fangs and
prepares to bite him when suddenly she is grabbed from behind.
It is Nicholas Blair, who has appeared out of thin air. He
orders Angelique to go home, and tells her he will speak to her
when he gets home. Angelique leaves. Blair questions Jeff,
and learns from Angelique’s wanting to supply the lifeforce
and about the aborted attempt. Blair puts Jeff to sleep, then
uses his powers to make him forget everything that’s happened
recently, and removes Angelique’s vampire curse from him. Blair
leaves normally, through the door. Jeff is awakened by a knock
at the door. He answers it. It is Blair. Blair tells Jeff that
he just happened to be in the neighborhood and dropped in for
a drink. Jeff has forgotten everything that’s happened…
Adam is in the living room of the Blair house with Eve.
He tells her he is worried about her safety. He grabs her and
drags her to a room in the cellar (the room where Blair and
Carolyn first summoned Danielle Roget), and tells Eve she will
be safe here, but Eve becomes terrified, saying she somehow
remembers the room and is fearful of being sent “back”. Adam
does not understand what she’s talking about and locks her in
there for her own safety.
When Blair returns home, Adam argues with him about the need
to leave with Eve and go away immediately, but Blair tells Adam
things will be much easier if he’d just agree to wait a little
bit longer, that “Without your scars, you wouldn’t have to hide
anymore. You could go anywhere you wanted! Isn’t that worth waiting
for?”. Adam agrees to stay just a little longer until Blair can
arrange for a doctor to come and remove his scars. A frightened
looking Angelique appears at the doorway and tells Blair that it
is almost dawn. Blair tells Adam he has to speak to Angelique
alone. Adam leaves. Angelique asks Blair what her punishment will
be. Blair replies that he’s in such a good mood because his plans
are going so well that he’s decided not to punish her, but will
instead give her a treat, someething that will make her happy to be
a vampire. He tells her he will allow her to attack and enslave
the man she most wants to attack and enslave – Barnabas.

Elizabeth is in the drawing room at Collinwood, looking at a
model of the mausoleum she’s had designed for herself. Vicky
comes into the room and asks, “Would you like to come on a drive
with me? It’s a beautiful day”, but Elizabeth declines, telling
Vicky she has something to show her, something she hasn’t shown
anyone else yet. Elizabeth shows Vicky the model, and asks
her to do something for her. She tells Vicky, “If I should die
before it’s finished, make sure they finish it and put me in it
and not just bury me in the ground”. Vicky refuses, saying, “No,
I’m not going to promise that because you’re not going to die”.
Elizabeth insists that she is. Vicky tries to reassure Elizabeth
that she’s not going to die anytime soon, that both Julia and the
doctors at Windcliff have said she’s in perfect health and that
all her problems are psychological, but Elizabeth continues to
babble, saying, “I will build it by the sea, by the cliffs,
and you will be able to hear the bell when it rings, and if you
hear it, you will know I’m not dead”. Roger, out in th foyer, hears
this, comes in and is upset to find that Elizabeth is talking about
death again. He sees that Elizabeth is trying to conceal something
from him with her body and asks, “What’s that?”. Elizabeth says,
“You’ll see it soon anyway”, and moves to let Roger see the model.
Roger exclaims, “You actually had an architect draw up plans and
make this?! Did you tell him about your plans, your fear of being
buried alive?!”. Elizabeth replies that she did. Roger exclaims,
“You know what he thought? He probably thought he was humoring
an insane woman! The whole village must be talking about this!”.
Elizabeth replies that she doesn’t care what people think.
Roger, becoming even more upset, grabs a statue and, using it
as a club, destroys the model. Upset, Elizabeth runs up to her room.
Roger talks despairingly to Vicky that he doesn’t know what to
do about Elizabeth, that she seemed to be getting better and
now this. Vicky tells him he shouldn’t have wrecked the model
and tries to put it back together.
Upstairs in her room, Elizabeth hears a voice calling to her.
She asks, “Who is it?” The voice replies, “Don’t you recognize your
own voice?” It tells her, “You must get ready! It’s almost time for
you to go to your grave!”. Elizabeth screams, “No!”, but the voice
continues, “Get ready! Get ready!”
Downstairs, Roger despairingly tells Vicky taht he does not know
what to do about Elizabeth. There is a knock at the front door.
Roger answers it and finds that it’s Jeff Clark. He asks to see
Vicky. Roger tells Jeff to wait at the door, then goes into the
drawing room and tells Vicky, “It’s Jeff. Should I say you don’t
want to see him?”. Vicky replies, “No, I’ll see him”.
Upstairs, the voice continues to speak to Elizabeth, “They’ll
find you in this room, they’ll think you’re dead!”. Elizabeth
exclaims, “No! No!”.
Roger brings Jeff into the drawing room then goes upstairs to let
Jeff and Vicky speak in private. Jeff tells Vicky that he wants to
make up with her and tries to give her back her engagement ring,
saying, “I seem to have an engagement ring that belongs to you”. Vicky
asks Jeff why he refused Roger’s offer, saying, “I just want an
explanation! I’ll accept ANY explanation: You don’t want to work at
a cannery, you hate Roger Collins, any explanation! I’ll accept it,
even if I don’t agree with it! I just want some kind of explanation!”
Jeff refuses to give her one, saying only, “I did it for you. I can’t
explain right now, maybe some day I can”. Vicky replies, “Then I’ll
take the ring the day you can” and refuses to take the engagement ring.
Roger goes to Elizabeth’s room and finds she’s not there. He comes
rushing back downstairs into the drawing room exclaiming that Elizabeth
is not in her room.
Elizabeth, meanwhile, is wandering through the cemetary. Her
own voice continues to talk tho her, telling her, “This is where
you’ll be buried, under the ground, but you will not be dead!
This is where you’ll be buried! The mausoleum will not be finished
in time!”. Elizabeth happens upon the grave of Peter Bradford and
remembers the time she and Vicky first found it and how happy Vicky
was to find that Peter Bradford was a real person and not just a
figment of her imagination.
At Collinwood, Jeff agrees to help Roger search for Elizabeth.
Vicky tells Roger that she wants to go too, but Roger tells her
he wants her to search the house with Mrs. Johnson, that it is
possible that Elizabeth is somewhere in the house.
In the woods, Roger tells Jeff to go look in the cemetary while
he goes and searches Widow’s Hill. Jeff goes to the graveyard and
finds Elizabeth at Peter Bradford’s grave. Elizabeth, seeing
Jeff and thinking he’s Peter Bradford, screams, “But you’re dead!
You’re dead! Don’t come near me! Don’t touch me!” When Jeff does
approach her, Elizabeth faints. Jeff picks her up, takes her back
to Collinwood and puts her on the couch. Vicky asks, “What happened?”
Jeff replies, “I don’t know”. Vicky asks, “Where did you find her?”
Jeff replies, “At the cemetary”. Vicky tries to feel Elizabeth’s
pulse, but cannot find one and exclaims, “She has no pulse! No
heartbeat! Jeff, she’s dead! She’s dead!!!”

Jeff tells Vicky she’s wrong and that he can detect a faint
breathing. Thinking that Julia’s at the old house (where there’s
no phone), Vicky calls Elizabeth’s doctor.
But Julia is not at the old house. She and Barnabas are up in
her room at Collinwood discussing Barnabas’ plans to kill Eve.
Julia shows Barnabas how to use a hypodermic syringe. Julia is
frightened and warns Barnabas not to go through with it, saying
she thinks Blair may not really be human and may somehow know about
his plan to kill Eve, but Barnabas refuses to be frightened. He
goes over the plan to Julia: Tomorrow, she and Professor Stokes are
to invite Blair to the old house and keep him occupied while he,
Barnabas, goes to Blair’s house and destroys Eve with a lethal
injection. Julia tells Barnabas she’ll fill the syringe tomorrow
just before they begin. Barnabas asks, “Are you sure it’ll look
like a natural death?”. Julia assures him, “Ten minutes after you
administer it, she’ll be dead. Two minutes later, all traces of the
poison will be gone from her body”.
Barnabas and Julia go downstairs to the drawing room and find
Vicky and Jeff there with Elizabeth. Vicky tells them what happened,
telling Julia, “I couldn’t find a heartbeat.” Julia examines Elizabeth
and says, “You’re right. She has no heartbeat”. Vicky asks, “Is she
dead?” Julia sadly replies, “Yes”. But she is quickly proven wrong.
Elizabeth awakens, screaming, “No! NO!!” . Julia remarks that
Elizabeth must have been in a catatonic state with no detectable
pulse or breathing. Elizabeth tells Julia that she could hear her
pronouncing her dead, and says it validates her fears of being
prematurely buried, saying, “If it had lasted a few days instead of
a few minutes, you would have buried me!”. Barnabas and Julia take
Elizabeth up to her room. Vicky thanks Jeff for finding Elizabeth.
Jeff again asks Vicky if they can get back together, but they are
interrupted by the arrival of Elizabeth’s doctor.
In Julia’s room, Barnabas and Julia discuss Elizabeth, and
Barnabas notes that Elizaeth’s delusions started when Cassandra
was at Collinwood. They wonder how Elizabeth’s problems can
persist even though Cassandra is long gone.
Having taken the doctor up to Elizabeth’s room, Vicky comes
back down to the drawing room. Jeff again asks her if they can
get back together. Vicky replies, “Yes”, and they kiss. Barnabas
happens to come down the stairs and sees them kissing. Looking
very upset, he leaves without saying a word.
Later, Vicky goes to Julia’s room and asks Julia if there’s any
danger of Elizabeth falling into another catatonic trance like the
one she was in earlier. Julia replies that it’s possible. Vicky
tells Julia that she fears that Elizabeth’s fears may be justified,
that if she falls into another catatonic trance, she might be buried
prematurely. Julia tells her not to worry, that it couldn’t happen
today with modern advanced methods of detecting life. Julia remarks,
“I was very surprised to see Jeff Clark here. Does this mean you
two are back together?”. Vicky tells Julia that she and Jeff have
gotten back together. Julia tells Vicky, “I’m very happy for you”.
Vicky leaves, and Julia prepares for bed. The ornate clock in
her room reads 12:00.
At 3:00 in the morning, Julia has a dream in which she hears
a series of bloodcurdling screams, then the voice of Barnabas
saying, “Julia! Julia! Come to me! I need you!”. Julia goes down
into the foyer. The voice continues, “Julia! Please help me! Help
me! Come to me! In the woods, Julia! Please! Come to me! The woods,
Julia! Hurry! Hurry!”. Julia goes out into the woods, where she
finds Barnabas bloody and injured. Barnabas tells her, “You were
right, Julia! It was a mistake! I should never have gone to Blair’s
house”, then dies. Julia awakens, screaming, “Barnabas! Barnabas!”.

In the morning, Julia rushes to the old house and tells Barnabas
that she is now certain he must not go to Blair’s house, that she’s
certain Blair knows what he’s planning to do and has set a trap for
him, that he will be killed if he goes there. Barnabas asks her
how she could know all this. Julia tells him about her dream.
Barnabas dismisses it as only a dream. Julia insists that it was
not, that it was a premonition, but Barnabas refuses to listen,
saying that the plan is already in motion, that Stokes is on his
way to Blair’s house to invite Blair to the old house.
Stokes goes to Blair’s house. Blair offers Stokes a glass of
sherry. Stokes remarks, “Interesting. You hardly know me, yet
you know my drink is sherry”. Blair explains, “Carolyn talked
a lot about you. She mentioned that you were a connoseur of sherry”.
Blair pours two sherries, and they drink. Stokes tells Blair that
Barnabas is having a little dinner party tonight and has sent him
to invite him. Blair remarks, “But I got the impression that Barnabas
didn’t like me”. Stokes assures him that this isn’t the case, that
Barnabas’ expressions often give people the wrong impression, adding,
“When I first met him, I thought he didn’t like me either, but I was
wrong”. Blair then notes, “I find it strange that he sent you. Why
didn’t he just telephone me?” Stokes tells Blair about Barnabas’
antiquarian eccentricities, including his refusal to have a telephone
installed at the old house. He tells Blair, “We’ll be dining by
candlelight”. Blair remarks that he finds this fascinating, and
accepts the invitation. Stokes mentions, “I have antiquarian interests
too. In particular, I am interested in old houses. I find yours very
interesting. Would you mind showing it to me?” Blair replies, “Not
at all! I’ll give you the complete tour!”
Stokes returns to the old house and tells Barnabas and Julia
that his visit to Blair was successful. Asked, “Are you sure
Blair didn’t suspect anything?”, Stokes replies that he is,
that “Blair’s an insufferable egotist. He wouldn’t believe
that ‘ordinary’ people like us would dare plot against him”.
He produces a drawing he’s made of the first and second floors.
Barnabas asks, “What about the third floor?”. Stokes replies
that Blair had said he only used it for storage and didn’t show
it to him. He tells Barnabas he knows which room is Eve’s,
explaining that he knows which one it is because of the strong
smell of perfume there, a smell Blair tried to explain away by
saying he had had visitors there who had just left. Julia tells
Barnabas she is worried that Adam might be with Eve when he sneaks
in, but Stokes tells her not to worry about this, that he thinks
Eve did not respond to Adam as Blair had hoped, but does not say why
he thinks this. Barnabas goes over the plan: Julia is to arrive
half an hour late at the dinner party, saying she was delayed because
Elizabeth had taken a turn for the worse. She is to tell Barnabas
that Elizabeth is asking for him. Barnabas will then leave,
supposedly to see Elizabeth, while Julia and Stokes keep Blair
entertained. Barnabas will then go to Blair’s house to kill Eve.
Julia again tries to convince Barnabas not to go, saying that she’s
sure Blair knows what they’re planning and has set a trap.
Stokes remarks that Blair couldn’t possible know, telling Julia
that he thinks she’s giving Blair’s powers too much credit.
But Stokes is wrong! At that very moment, Blair is spying on
them with his magic mirror…
Blair comes to the old house as planned. Stokes and Barnabas
entertain him with stories about the old house’s history. Stokes
tells Blair that the house was build in 1767 by Joshua Collins
as a gift to his new bride Naomi, and that it was occupied by
the Collins family until they moved into the present Collinwood
in 1796. Blair asks Stokes how he could know so much about the Collins
family history. Stokes explains that he’s interested in the Collins
family history of the late 18th century because an ancestor of his, a
Ben Stokes, had been working for the Collinses as an indentured servant
at that time. Barnabas wonders, “Where’s Julia? She’s usually very
prompt”. Julia comes from Collinwood and apoligizes for being
late. She says that Elizabeth has taken a turn for the worse
and has asked to see Barnabas. Blair asks what’s wrong with
Elizabeth. Julia tells him about Elizabeth’s mental problems.
Barnabas apoligizes to Blair about having to be a bad host and
Barnabas arrives at Blair’s house and sneaks in. Meanwhile,
at the old house, Blair, evil bastard that he is, tortures Stokes
and Julia a bit by suddenly getting up and annoucing that he
thinks it would be proper if he visited Collinwood too,
saying, “Although I never got to know Elizabeth very well, I
did become rather good friends with Roger”, and says he thinks
it would be proper for him to give Roger some sympathy during
his time of need, with his sister Elizabeth so sick. Julia,
desperate, thinks of a way to stop him, telling him, “When
I left, Roger had already retired for the night”. Blair
remarks, “Oh. Then I guess it’ll have to wait till tomorrow”
and sits back down, much to Stoke’s and Julia’s relief.
At Blair’s house, Barnabas sneaks into Eve’s room and sees
what looks like a sleeping form on the bed. He lifts the covers
to give Eve the lethal injection, but finds that the form is
just pillows, arranged to look like a sleeping form. He hears
a woman’s voice from behind say, “Hello, Barnabas!”. He turns,
sees a very familiar blonde woman standing there and exclaims,

Barnabas exclaims, “Angelique! It isn’t possible!” Angelique
replies, “You thought you were rid of me, weren’t you? You were
wrong!”. Barnabas protests, “But Nicholas Blair destroyed you!”
but Angelique explains, “But he allowed me to live again. You
seem afraid, Barnabas. I like that!” Barnabas says, “Stay away
from me!” Angelique asks, “Aren’t you curious how Nicholas allowed
me to live again? Let me show you! This is what I am! This is what
Nicholas made me!”. She bares her fangs and bites him. Barnabas
Later, Barnabas regains conciousness and finds Angelique standing
over him. He moans, “I never be rid of you! As long as I exist,
you will exist to torment me!”. Angelique replies, “You’re right!”.
Barnabas moans, “I hate you!”. Angelique replies, “Not as much as
I hate you! I loved you once, but you would not love me!”. Barnabas
explains, “I loved Josette”. This angers Angelique. She tells Barnabas,
“I hate what I am, but I like what I can do to you!” Barnabas gets
up and flees, stumbling down the stairs, but when he opens the
front door to leave, he finds Angelique standing outside. She orders
him into the living room.
At the old house, Julia and Stokes continue to “entertain”
Nicholas Blain. Julia looks at the mantel clock and thinks to
herself that it’s very late, that Barnabas has been away far
longer than planned, and becomes worried that something has
happened to him. Her worry shows, and Blair asks, “You seem
nervous”. Julia lies, “It’s just that I’m worried about
Elizabeth”. Blair then tells Julia and Stokes that it’s getting
late and he’s got to leave. Julia and Stokes try desperately to
delay him, but to no avail. Stokes tries to keep him by saying,
“As I mentioned, I found the architecture of your house very
interesting. I thought perhaps we could talk about it tonight”,
but Blair replies, “No, I’m very tired. Maybe some other time”
and leaves. Julia gasps, “If Barnabas is still in the house when
Blair gets home, Blair will find him! What are we going to do!”
Stokes replies, “Nothing. There’s nothing we can do but hope
Barnabas is no longer in the house”.
At Blair’s house, Angelique tells Barnabas that he is hers now.
She tells him, “Blair knew everything. This was a trap. I’m
disappointed in you, Barnabas. I thought you were more intelligent
than that”. Barnabas tells Angelique that Julia and Stokes are
waiting for him at the old house and begs her to let him leave.
She tells him she enjoys hearing him plead, then gives him permission
to go, but orders him not to tell Julia and Stokes what’s happened
Blair returns home. Angelique tells him that’s she’s done as
instructed and Barnabas is now under her control. Blair remarks,
“Good. Are you happy?” Angelique replies, “I’ve never been happier!”
Blair asks, “Are you grateful to me?” Angelique replies, “Very”.
Blair tells her, “Well, don’t be so grateful” and tells her he’s not
going to be giving her all that she wants, that she is not to see
Barnabas at will, that she is only to summon or go to Barnabas when
he, Blair, orders her to do so. Angelique agrees to do as ordered.
Blair, surprised, remarks, “You’re agreeing awfully quickly”.
Angelique asks, “Don’t you trust me?” Blair replies, “No.
I know what goes on in that crafty mind of yours”. Angelique
replies that he needn’t worry that she’ll disobey him because
she’s afraid of his powers. Blair points out, “But you’ve
disobeyed me before in spite of my powers”. Angelique points
out that that she’s now more afraid of him because she’s a
vampire and he can destroy her so easily and assures him
she’ll be obedient. Blair tells her, “You’d better. This will
be my only warning”.
Barnabas returns to the Old House and tells Julia and Stokes
that the plan failed, that he snuck into Eve’s room but found
that she wasn’t there, that he searched the entire house but
found nobody there. Julia remarks to Barnabas that he seems to
be acting strangely and asks what’s wrong. Barnabas lies that
he’s just tired and nervous from the night’s work. Julia and
Stokes leave. Outside the old house, Julia tells Stokes that
she’s worried about Barnabas, that he appeared to be more than
just tired. Stokes tells her, “We’ve both worried enough for
tonight. Get a good night’s sleep and worry about it tomorrow”.
Inside the old house, Barnabas wonders, “I’ve got to find
a way of escaping her, but how?” Outside, dogs howl. Suddenly,
the window blows open. Inside the old house, Angelique
materializes out of thin air. Defying Blair’s orders, she has
come to Barnabas. She tells Barnabas, “I know what you were
thinking. You’ll never find a way to escape me!”. Barnabas
moans, “Haven’t you done enough to me for one night? Can’t
you leave me alone?” Angelique replies, “I’ll never leave
you alone until you’re completely mine!”, and bares her fangs.
Barnabas whimpers, “No! Please, no!” Angelique bites him…
Barnabas screams pitifully…

Blair goes into Adam’s room and awakens him to tell him that
their plan has worked and Eve is safe. He notices that Adam
does not react very happily to the news and asks him what’s wrong.
Adam replies that he’s not feeling well, that he had a terrible
nightmare in which someone attacked him and that he’s still
feeling frightened for some reason. Blair notices that Adam
keeps holding one hand to his neck. He lifts the hand to see
what’s wrong and notices pimple-like things in Adam’s neck. Blair
asks Adam if Angelique’s been in his room, but Adam replies
that she hasn’t, but seems to respond fearfully to the name
“Angelique”. Blair tells Adam he knows what happened and
assures him it won’t happen again.
Downstairs, Angelique is gloating over what she’s done to
Barnabas and about what she plans to do to him in the future.
Blair comes down and tells Angelique about what happened to
Adam, and says, “We’ve forgotten about Lang’s message! This must
be the connection between Adam and Barnahas Lang talked about!”.
He tells Angelique that she must therefore leave Barnabas alone
from now on. Angelique protests, “But I need him!”. Blair
tells her, “Uses Joe Haskell instead”. Angelique exclaims, “You
just want me to take care of Joe because you want that girl
Maggie Evans all to yourself!” She is furious. Blair
tells her, “The sun is about to come? Are you going to go back
to your coffin or stay here arguing with me?” Angelique leaves,
glaring back angrily at Nicholas as she exits through a door.
At the Blue Whale, Joe Haskell is sitting at the bar, drinking.
Maggie comes in and sees him. She starts to turn away but
seeing the condition he’s in, decides to talk to him. She finds
that he hasn’t gotten any better, that he’s still not working.
Joe asks Maggie if she’s come to meet Blair. Maggie admits that
she has. Joe notes that she’s been seeing a lot of Blair lately.
Maggie admits that she has, saying that Blair is a kind, considerate
man and she enjoys his company. Blair arrives. Maggie says goodbye
to Joe and goes to join Blair. Joe looks at Maggie longingly and
wishes that he could tell her what’s happened to him, that he could
tell her his bizarre behavior is not his fault, but knows he can’t.
Noting that the sun is about to set, he decides to go see Angelique.
Blair gives his sympathy to Maggie about Joe, but Maggie replies, “I
don’t want to think about Joe Haskell. I don’t even know any Joe
Angelique awakens and walks up to the living room. Adam is there,
reading. But when he sees Angelique, he reacts with terror and
shrinks from her. Angelique asks Adam if Blair has gone out to see
Maggie. Adam replies that he has. By now, he has backed all the
way to the other side of the room. Angelique, puzzled, asks, “Are
you afraid of me?” Adam replies that he is. Angelique asks, “Why?”.
Adam replies, “I don’t know” and runs from the room in terror.
Angelique angrily notes that Blair has everything he wants
while denying her what she wants and vows to wreck his plans.
Joe arrives. Angelique tells him she didn’t summon him and orders
him to leave, saying she doesn’t want to see him anymore. Joe
accuses her of having someone else. Angelique tells him that he’s
right, that there’s someone else she wants more. Jealous, Joe
sits down in a chair, refusing to budge, saying, “I’ll wait here
until whoever it is comes, then I’ll kill him!”. Angelique
tells Joe, “If you won’t leave, I’ll show you something to make
you leave!”. She then tells him to look into the magic mirror.
He does. In it, he sees Maggie and Blair outside the Evan’s
cottage. Blair tells Maggie he has fallen in love with her
and wonders if she could possibly ever love him, that if she
couldn’t, then perhaps they should stop seeing each other
immediately. He asks, “Should we stop seeing each other?”.
Maggie replies, “No”. They embrace and kiss. Seeing this, Joe
moans, “I’ve lost Maggie forever!”. He tells Angelique that because
of her’s he’s lost everything, Maggie, his job, everything, that
all he’s got left is her. Angelique cruelly tells him, “You don’t
even have that! I don’t want you anymore!”. Joe screams, “You’ve
ruined my life, and you don’t even care!”. Angelique coldy replies,
“Not particularly”. Joe exclaims, “EVIL! VICIOUS!”, grabs a letter
opener from the deak, and raises it to kill Angelique, but Angelique
just stands there calmly and says, “You know you can’t kill me, Joe”.
Joe lowers the letter opener and says, “You’re right. Maybe it’s me I
should kill! I hate myself! I hate everything I’ve become. I don’t
want to live, I want to die”. Angelique, not taking Joe’s
babbling seriously, turns her back on him and says, “Please leave,
Joe, you don’t know how much you bore me”. She hears Joe scream,
“AHHHHHH”, turns and is shocked to see that Joe has stabbed
himself in the stomach.

Angelique, terrified that Nicholas will come home and find
Joe dead there, panics and, not knowing what else to do,
telepathically summons Barnabas. When he comes, Angelique
shows him Joe, explaining that Joe stabbed himself. Barnabas
asks why Joe would do such a thing, but Angelique refuses to
answer. Barnabas then notices the bite marks on Joe’s neck.
Angelique orders Barnabas to take Joe deep into the woods and
leave him there. Barnabas protests, “But he’s dying!” Angelique
replies, “Good! If he dies, you won’t have to kill him!”, and
orders Barnabas to kill Joe if he’s not dead by the time he’s
brought him into the woods.
Barnabas takes Joe and leaves, but disobeying Angelique,
he takes him to the old house instead of into the woods.
Julia examines Joe and tells Barnabas she wants to take him
to the hospital, but Barnabas asks her not to, saying he would
prefer to avoid police involvement. Joe keeps muttering, “I
want to die!”, but also keeps saying, “Why doesn’t she come?
Where is she?”. Julia tells Barnabas she thinks Joe is talking
about Maggie and tells Barnabas that it might be a good idea
to get her. Barnabas asks, “Why?” Julia replies, “There is
such a thing as will to live, you know. It’s more than just
a romantic idea. Seeing Maggie might help Joe.” Barnabas points
out, “But Joe and Maggie have broken up”. Julia replies, “Maybe
he still wants her. Sometimes people attempt to commit suicide
to try to get what they want”. Julia cuts the sleeve off Joe’s
sweater to get a better look at his wound and happens to see the
vampire fang marks on his neck and realizes that Joe must be the
victim of a vampire. Barnabas feigns surprise and shock. Julia,
reasoning that the vampire who bit Joe must be the vampire they’ve
been searching for, the same vampire that attacked Tom Jennings, tells
Barnabas that this is their chance to catch it, that if they keep
Joe at the Old House, the vampire might come for him, at which
time they’ll be able to trap and destroy it. Barnabas leaves
to fetch Maggie. Joe continues to moan, “Where is she?” Julia
seems to get an idea…
Barnabas gets Maggie and brings her to the old house. Maggie
keeps blaming herself for what happened to Joe, saying she should
have done something to help before Joe got into such a bad state.
Julia takes her upstairs to the room Joe has been moved and leaves
her alone there. Maggie asks Joe what caused him to do this, but
Joe does not answer. Finally, she asks, “Was it her, that girl?”
(Apparently she has some memory of seeing Angelique). Joe
After Maggie leaves, Julia tells Barnabas that they must prepare
some silver bullets in case the vampire come for Joe, adding, “She
might come at any time”. Barnabas, surprised, asks, “She?”. Julia
tells Barnabas that she suspects that the vampire is a woman. Barnabas
asks, “How do you know?” Julia replies, “Just intuition. I even think
I know who it is. Cassandra”. Barnabas protests, “But I was with
Cassandra when she died. She didn’t die of a vampire bite”. He
points out, “You know, I AM something of an expert on the subject”.
Julia admits she must be wrong and apoligizes for jumping to
Later, Barnabas goes upstairs and sees Joe. He lies, “I found
you in the woods nearby”. Joe replies, “You didn’t find me in
the woods. You found me at HER house, Angelique’s!” Barnabas
whispers, “You must never mention that name in this house”. Joe
starts to think aloud, “Wait a minute. How did you get in? Nicholas
would never have let you into that house!” Barnabas lies, “I snuck
in”, but Joe, suspecting something exclaims, “She must have summoned
you!”, grabs Barnabas’ collar, pulls him closer, sees the bite mark
on his throat and shouts, “YOU! YOU MUST BE THE ONE SHE LEFT ME FOR!
I’M GOING TO KILL YOU!”.

At Blair’s house, Adam writes a letter to Carolyn and gives
it to Harry Johnson to deliver to her. Eve comes into the
room, looks out the window and remarks, “Ah! I remember days
like this! Fall, and the first day of the year after summer has
arrived!” Adam is puzzled and asks her how she could remember
such a day since there have been no such days since her creation.
She replies that she doesn’t know. She adds that she also knows
that soon, the leaves will fall from the trees, but doesn’t know
how she knows this either. She tells Adam she plans to disobey
Blair and leave the house for awhile. Adam begs her not to, saying
he has a surprise for her today.
Harry Johnson delivers the letter to Carolyn. She reads it,
then tells Harry, “Go tell Adam the answer is yes. Tell him I’m
very happy about it”. Harry returns to Blair’s house and relays
Carolyn’s message to Adam and leaves. Adam tells Eve that this
is her big surprise, that they’re going to Collinwood to visit
Carolyn. Eve disdainfully exclaims, “THAT’S your big surprise?!”
and laughs hysterically.
At Collinwood, Jeff and Carolyn are in the garden. Jeff is
waiting for Vicky and Carolyn is keeping him company. Jeff tells
Carolyn he thinks he hears a noise outside the fence, but Carolyn
replies that she hears nothing, then tells Jeff that she’s going
inside, that there’s something he has to do. She tells Jeff she’ll
also see what’s taking Vicky so long, then goes inside. Jeff
announces loudly, “You know, I think I’ll go inside to see what’s
taking Vicky so long too”, but instead of going inside, ducks
behind some bushes. Someone comes into the garden through the
gate. It’s just David. Jeff asks David what’s wrong. David
replies that he’s upset that he, Jeff, is going to marry Vicky
and take her away to Boston. Jeff tries to console him, promising
to let him visit them in Boston often, saying, “You probably know
Boston pretty well, you’ve been there so many times with Carolyn
and your Uncle Roger”. But David, still upset, shouts, “I heard
THEM talking! I know you’re really Peter Bradford! You were in
Boston in Revolutionary times! You should know all about historic
Boston!” Jeff grabs David and shakes him angrily, saying, “I’m
not Peter Bradford!”, but then quickly stops and apoligizes
to the boy and starts to speak to him gently.
Inside, Adam arrives at his old hiding place, where Carolyn
is waiting for him. They tell each other how happy they are to
see one another again. Carolyn then asks, “Where is she?”. Adam
brings Eve in. Eve looks around and sneers, “THIS is where they
used to keep you?!”. Adam tries to tell her he had a good time
here. He tells her about the books, card games with Carolyn, etc,
but Eve continues to sneer. She walks over to the window and
looks out into the garden, where she sees Jeff and David talking.
Both Carolyn and Adam warn Eve to get back away from the window
as someone might see her, but Eve refuses. Adam goes to Eve and
tries to pull her away from the window, but Eve angrily shouts,
“Don’t touch me! I don’t want you to ever touch me again!” and
stalks out of the room, saying, “I’ll go home by myself! I know the
In the garden, Jeff finally gets David to believe that he’s not
Peter Bradford and gets him to accept his marriage to Vicky. He
tells David he wants him to be the ring-bearer. David seems happy.
Jeff looks at his watch and tells David to go up and get Vicky,
joking, “Tell her she’s just broken the world record for making
someone wait”. David leaves to get Vicky. Eve walks in
through the gate and exclaims, “Peter! Peter Bradford!”.

Jeff replies, “I’m not Peter Bradford. I’m Jeff Clark”, but
Eve notes that he responded to the name and insists he’s Peter
Bradford, that they once knew and loved one another, though she
doesn’t remember exactly where or when. She tells him she’s
surprised to see him. He continues to deny he’s Peter Bradford,
but Eve just says, “You ARE my Peter Bradford, and I’ve found
you at last!”
Inside, Vicky walks into the drawing room and sees Elizabeth
there writing some letters. She tells Elizabeth that she’s glad
to see that she’s better. Elizabeth tells Vicky that she’d like
her to thank Jeff for what he did. Vicky tells her, “You can do
that personally. He’s come to take me to a movie”. She tells
Elizabeth that she and Jeff have gotten back together again,
that they plan to be married, though they haven’t set a date
yet. But Elizabeth is not better… She remarks sadly, “I don’t
know whether I’ll be alive to attend the wedding or not”.
Hearing someone coming, Eve hides in the bushes. Vicky comes
out into the garden. She notes that Jeff is acting strangly
and asks what’s wrong. Jeff lies that he’s just worried about
his new job, which he’ll be starting in a few days, that he’s
already let Roger down once and doesn’t want to do so again.
Vicky and Jeff leave. Eve comes out from behind the bushes and
watches them go. Elizabeth comes out into the garden. She sees
Eve, who’s dressed in a jet black dress, and panics, screaming,
“I know who you are! You’re the angel of death! You’ve come to tell
me my time has come!”.
Eve returns to Blair’s house. She notices that Blair looks
very angry and asks, “What’s the matter?” Blair angrily replies,
“You’re doing everything you can to ruin my plans, and you
ask, ‘What’s the matter?’!”, telling Eve that Adam had told him what
had happened at Collinwood. She derivesively remarks, “Poor little
Adam, the slightest problem and he goes running to Nicholas”. Blair
angrily slaps her for daring to talk back to him. Eve, however, is
unrepentant and tells Blair that she’s not afraid of him, that
she knows he can’t do anything to her because she’s indispensible
to his plans. She demands to know who she was before the
experiment. Blair asks, “Why do you want to know?”. Eve tells
Blair, “I saw someone I knew I loved in a previous life,
but I couldn’t remember when or where. Nicholas, who was I?”
Nicholas exclaims, “That’s fascinating!”, and asks who the man is.
Eve refuses to tell him, saying, “I wouldn’t want to endanger
him. I know you’d harm anyone who could get between Adam and me”.
Nicholas promises not to harm him, and tells her he’ll make a bargain
with her, that if she’ll tell him who it is, he’ll tell her who she
was. Eve tells him, “He now calls himself Jeff Clark”. Blair
remarks, “If he is indeed someone you used to know in the past,
this indicates that there are forces at work I don’t know about”.
Eve, now wanting Nicholas to fufill his part of the bargain,
starts to say, “Now I’d like you to tell me…”, but Nicholas
interrupts, saying, “No, I’d like YOU to tell ME!”. He tells Eve,
“I’d like you to look at this candle, into this flame…”, hypnotizing
her and sending her back into the past…
Eve flashes back to a scene in the 1790’s. She is standing
next to Peter Bradford, who is seated at a writing stand. Eve,
in the flashback, looks very nervous and asks, “What are you going
to do, Peter?” Peter, rather coldly, replies, “I haven’t decided
yet”. Eve says, “But he would have KILLED you!”. Peter remarks,
“So you killed him. Simple as that.”. Eve remarks, “After four
years of the French revolution, the shedding of blood means
little to me. I killed Phillipe for you!” Peter tells Eve, “I’m
going to turn you in to the authorities for killing Phillipe!
But I’ll give you more of a chance than you gave poor Philippe.
I’ll wait until morning before I go to the authorities to give you
a chance to leave Collinsport. Now get out of here! I never want
to see you again!”.
Eve snaps out of the trance and exclaims, “He IS Peter Bradford,
and I love him!! I love him!”.

Eve continues to say she oves Peter Bradford and wants to be
with him, but Blair tells her she belongs with Adam. Eve
continues to insist she loves Peter Bradford, saying she once
loved him enough to kill for him. Blair explains to her that
the “Phillipe” she killed was one Philippe Cordiet, her lover
who came with her from France. He tells her that after coming
to America, she fell in love with Peter Bradford and killed
Philippe Cordiet because he wouldn’t let her go. Eve remarks that
that’s probably why she feels so much like killing Adam. Blair
orders Eve to pretend to like Adam and be with him. Eve
angrily walks out of the room and out of the front door.
Adam, coming down the stairs, sees Eve leave and goes into
the living room and asks Blair where Eve is going. Blair lies
that Eve has a headache and is just going out for a breath of
fresh air. Adam tells Blair, “It’s this place that’s making her
miserable”, and demands that they leave immediately. Blair at first
says they cannot go and refuses to do so. Adam continues to argue
with him, and eventually Blair agrees to leave, but tells Adam
he has one last arrangement to make before they can leave. He
tells Adam it won’t be just the three of them leaving, there’ll
be a fourth. Adam asks who. Blair replies, “Maggie Evans”.
He tells Adam that as soon as he, Blair, can convince Maggie to
go with them, they’ll leave Collinsport.
Eve goes to Jeff Clark’s apartment. Jeff, surprised, asks,
“How did you find me?” Eve replies, “You told me what name you
were going by now. It wasn’t hard”, and tells him she knows he
is Peter Bradford. Jeff insists he’s not. They argue about
this. At one point, Jeff notes that he cannot be Peter Bradford
because Peter Bradford died 200 years ago. Eve retorts, “So
you’ve heard of him! You know who Peter Bradford is!” Jeff lies
that he read it somewhere. Eve asks who the girl she saw him with
last night was. Jeff replies, “Leave Vicky Winters alone!”.
He tells Eve that he loves Vicky and is going to marry her.
Eve replies, “I am the one who loves you! Don’t count on marrying
Vicky Winters!” and leaves.
Blair goes to the Evan’s cottage and proposes marriage to
Maggie, saying he’s sorry about the abruptness, but he may have
to leave Collinsport in a few days, never to return. Maggie
tells him she’s sorry, but she’ll have to reject his offer,
that she would have accepted had the circumstances been different,
but she can’t accept right now because she’s worried about Joe
Haskell. Blair says, “I thought you broke up with him”. Maggie
replies, “I have, but I’m worried about him because of what’s
just happened”. She tells Blair about Joe’s suicide attempt and
her visit to him at the old house. She also tells Blair that
he was right, that she learned that there was another girl
in Joe’s life, that Joe kept asking for “her” in his delirium,
but that she, Maggie, didn’t know who this mysterious “her”
Eve returns to Blair’s house. Adam tells Eve that he has
good news for her, that Blair has promised that they will leave
Collinsport in a few days, and asks, “Aren’t you happy?”.
Eve replies in a very sarcastic tone, “Delighted!” and
goes upstairs. Blair returns home and tells Adam it may take a
little longer than he expected to leave Collinsport, that Maggie
Evans wouldn’t agree to go. Adam angrily asks, “How much longer?”
Blair replies that he doesn’t want to force Maggie to come, that
he wants her to come of her own free will. There’s a knock at
the front door. Blair tells Adam it’s Harry Johnson, whom he’s
summoned to run an errand for him, and asks Adam to leave the
room so they can speak in private. After Adam leaves, Blair
lets Harry in. He gives him a vial and tells him, “This is
poison. At 6:00 tonight, you are to sneak into the old house, go
upstairs, and find the room Joe Haskell is in. There, you’ll find
a tray of medicine. You are to poison his medicine with this”.
He remarks, “By tomorrow morning, Joe Haskell will be dead!”

At the old house, Barnabas and Julia are with Joe in some
bedroom. Julia wonders aloud, “Who could have bitten him?”.
Barnabas tells Julia that she looks very tired and recommends
that she go get some rest. Julia agrees to do so, but tells
Barnabas he is not to leave Joe alone in the room for any reason
in case the vampire comes, and to prevent Joe from leaving should
the vampire summon him.
Harry Johnson is at Collinwood, preparing to go to the old
house to do as Blair had instructed. He watches the clock
nervously, saying, “It’s almost time. I’ll have to go and
do what Nicholas wants me to do. I don’t want to, but I
have to. I can’t disobey him. I don’t know why”. The clock
strikes 6:00. As Harry turns to leave, he hears his mother call
his name. He turns and finds her standing there. She accuses
of being up to something, saying she’s noticed that he’s been
acting strangely all week. Harry insists that he’s not, but
his mother tells him, “I know you are! I can always tell when
you’re lying”. Harry replies, “I’m not. I don’t have time to
argue with you about this. I’m going for a walk”, and leaves.

telepathically, but resists. Joe too hears Angelique’s summons.
He mutters “Angelique”, jealously exclaims, “You! It’s you she’s
calling!”, and tries to get up, but lapses into unconciousness.
Barnabas finds that he can resist Angelique’s calls no longer
Outside, Blair sees Barnabas leave the old house and
mutters, “He’s leaving the house, just as Nicholas promised
he would”. He sneaks inside and finds Julia asleep in a chair
in the drawing room. He goes upstairs, finds Joe’s room, goes
inside, and poison Joe’s medicine. Julia awakens and goes
upstairs. Harry, hearing Julia coming up, hides behind the
curtains. Julia comes into the room and finds that Barnabas,
contrary to her instructions, has gone.
Barnabas meets Angelique in the woods. She tells him she
is very angry with him because she knows he let Joe live
instead of killing him as she had instructed. Barnabas replies
that he just couldn’t do it. Angelique tells him, “You WILL
kill Joe Haskell!”. She tells him she wants him to do it
because she wants him to bear the guilt for all eternity.
At the old house, Julia wonders where Barnabas could have
gone. She leaves the room, goes downstairs, opens the front
door and calls for him. Harry quietly comes down the stairs,
and seeing Julia looking out the front door, sneaks out the
back door. Julia hears the back door close. Thinking that
it must be Barnabas, she calls out, “Barnabas?”, but there’s
In the woods, Angelique, having told Barnabas what he
must do, asks him if he’s understood her instruction. He
replies that he has, but says that he won’t do it. To ensure
that he does, Angelique bites him.
Harry, on his way through the woods back to Collinwood,
finds Barnabas and brings him there. Mrs. Johnson asks the
dazed Barnabas what happened. Barnabas lies that he was
walking through the woods when, suddenly, he felt dizzy and
passed out, that the next thing he remember is awakeing to
find Harry standing over him. Mrs. Johnson tells him she’ll
call a doctor, but Barnabas tells her not to, saying he’ll just
have Julia check him. He leaves to go beck to the old house.
Barnabas goes back to the old house. Julia reprimands him
for not following her orders to stay with Joe, then asks him
where he’s been. Barnabas lies that he heard dogs howling
outside and was certain that someone was outside the house
and went to investigate. Julia asks why he didn’t wake her
to watch over her when he went to investigate. Barnabas lies
that he didn’t think he’d be away for long, and wasn’t.
Julia tells him that it HAS been a long time, that she’s
been awake for at least an hour. Barnabas replies that he must
have lost track of time while searching in the woods. Julia
tells him he thinks someone might have snuck into the house
while he was gone, but that she’s not sure. Barnabas tells
Julia he’ll go upstairs to see how Joe is. He asks her if
she’s given him a dose of medicine while he was out. Julia
replies that Joe’s already had his dosage for the night.
Barnabas tells her to stay downstairs and get some more rest
while he goes to check on Joe.
Barnabas goes up into the room Joe’s recuperating in.
He pours a spoonful of the the poisoned medicine into
a spoon and prepares to give it to Joe, thinking to himself,
“I know this will kill Joe. Why must I do this? I must
do this because it is her command…”

But Barnabas is interrupted by a voice calling, “Barnabas!”
He turns and sees that it is Julia, who has decided to
follow him up. She asks him why he’s giving the medicine to
Joe even though she’s told him Joe has already had enough
medicine for the night. Barnabas manages a confused explanation,
saying he’s tired and confused and thought it was already morning.
Julia takes the bottle of medicine and the spoon, and pours the
medicine back into the bottle and leaves, taking the bottle with
her, saying, “In case you get confused again” to Barnabas.
Barnabas continues to watch over Joe. Eventually, Julia comes
back and asks Barnabas again, “Why were you giving Joe that
medicine?”. Barnabas replies, “I’ve already told you. I was
tired and confused.” Julia says, “I’m afraid I can’t accept that
explanation completely right now”. Barnabas asks, “Why not?” Julia
replies, “Because I’ve made an analysis of the medicine”. Barnabas,
pretending to be puzzled, asks, “Why? You know what it is. You
prescribed it”. Julia replies, “Yes, but there’s one crucial
difference now”. Barnabas, continuing to feign puzzlement and
ignorance, asks, “What?” Julia replies, “There’s now a deadly
poison in it. You were trying to kill Joe!” Barnabas replies,
“That’s ridiculous! I’m the one who saved him in the first place!”.
Julia asks, “Who else could have done it?”. Barnabas reminds her
that she had thought someone had snuck into the house while he was
gone and she was asleep and suggests it may have been the intruder.
Julia agrees that that could have been the case, then thinks a bit
and wonders why, if an intruder had poisoned the medicine, he didn’t
give it to Joe to finish the job. Joe, conscious but feigning sleep,
has overheard the conversation and thinks to himself that
Barnabas is trying to kill him to have Angelique all to himself.
Maggie comes to the old house to see how Joe is doing. She
tells Julia she doesn’t want to see him, that she just wants to
know how he’s doing, but Julia convinces her that it would be
best for Joe if she did go up and see him, and asks her to
tell her if Joe mentions this mysterious “she” he keeps talking
about. Maggie goes upstairs.
When Joe sees Maggie, he tells her she shouldn’t be there.
She tries to find out who the “other woman” is, but Joe refuses
to tell her and orders her to leave. As Maggie is about to go
out the door, Joe calls her back and tells her, “If I should
die, Barnabas is responsible! He’s planning to kill me!”.
Maggie tells him, “That’s ridiculous. He’s the one who saved
you in the first place”. After Maggie leaves, Joe thinks to
himself, “Don’t worry, Maggie. Barnabas won’t kill me. I won’t
let him. But how can I stop him? There’s only one way! I’ve got
to kill him before he can kill me!”.
Downstairs, Maggie tells Julia that Joe was delirious and
didn’t tell her who the “she” was. She thanks Barnabas for
saving Joe’s life. After Maggie leaves, Julia tells Barnabas
that she thinks Maggie still loves Joe. Barnabas agrees.
Julia tells Barnabas that she has to go to Collinwood for awhile
and asks him to keep an eye on things at the old house. Barnabas
asks her why she would leave him alone at the old house with Joe
after she had accused him of trying to murder him earlier. Julia
replies that she no longer thinks that now and now trusts him.
Barnabas tells her, “I’m honored by your new found trust in me”.
Julia tells him that now it’s morning, it isn’t necessary for
him to stay with Joe, since the vampire is sleeping again.
She tells Barnabas it would be better for him to let Joe rest
alone, and stay down in the living room.
When Julia gets back to Collinwood, she runs into Mrs.
Johnson, who asks her how Barnabas is. Julia asks, “What do you
mean?”. Mrs. Johnson recounts what happened last night, about
Harry finding Barnabas in the woods, etc.
At the old house, Joe, having decided to kill Barnabas before
Barnabas can kill him, gets out of bed and looks for something
to use as a weapon. He thinks to himself, “I’ve got to kill him
first! I don’t have a choice! But how? How am I going to do it?
I’ve got to find something! Anything!” Finding little in the room
that can be used as a weapon, he thinks to himself, “There’s
nothing here! My hands! I’ll choke him to death! No. There’s no
strength in them”. He looks around again he finally settles on a
section of rope from the curtains. He goes downstairs and finds
Barnabas asleep in a chair. He puts the rope around Barnabas’ neck
and proceeds to strangle him.

Joe shouts, “You tried to poison me! No one’s going to do
that to me! No one!” and continues strangling Barnabas with
Joe is interrupted by Mrs. Johnson, who walks into the room,
sees what’s going on and screams. She tries to tear Joe away
from Barnabas, but is unable to do so. Eventually, Joe, looks
at Barnabas and, being no murderer at heart, is shocked at
what he’s doing, releases Barnabas and runs off. Barnabas
At Collinwood, Roger pulls a bell pull to the left of the
fireplace to summon Mrs. Johnson, but she doesn’t come.
He remarks to Elizabeth that he would have liked Mrs. Johnson
to have brought some tea because it’s always good to have
some soothing tea when you’re discussing problems. Elizabeth
remarks, “You heard me talking to the contractor on the telephone
about my mausoleum, didn’t you?” Roger tells her that he’s
concerned about what people will think when she builds her special
tomb, saying, “The kind ones will call you eccentric…” Elizabeth
finishes his sentence for him, “And the unkind ones will say I’m
mad”. Roger asks, “And you don’t care?” Elizabeth replies, “I’m
more concerned about being buried alive and suffocating to
death in a coffin”. Roger admits, “I am concerned about our
reputation. I admit it. But not for myself, but for David
and Carolyn”. He tries to convince her to instead secretly modify
the existing Collins Family mausoleum at Eagle Hill instead of
building a new one, that that way, no one would know what was going
on. Elizabeth replies that she doesn’t care what people think, but
Roger convinces her to come to go the the cemetary with him and take
a look at the mausoleum he’s talking about, telling her, “If you
agree to use the tomb, I’ll take over the job and make sure it’s
modified to your specifications”.
Mrs. Johnson manages to revive Barnabas. He tells her she must
keep what happened a secret, that she must forget that it ever
happened, that she must not tell anyone, not the police, not
the Collinses, not even Julia. Mrs. Johnson is greatly puzzled
at this strange request.
Joe is wandering around in the woods, wondering where he will
Elizabeth and Roger arrive at the cemetary. They look at
a headstone that says, “Jonah Collins, died June 15, 1863, Age 23.”
Elizabeth starts to think she hears the dead trying to talk to her.
She tells Roger she has changed her mind and wants to go back to
Collinwood, saying, “The dead are here! They’re all envious of us
because we’re alive! Can’t you feel them?”, but Roger dismisses this
as her imagination and insists they look at the mausoleum first. They
go into the Collins family mausoleum. They hear a groan coming from
inside and find Joe in there, leaning against a wall. Joe collapses.
Mrs. Johnson rushes back to Collinwood, where she finds Harry
in the foyer. She tells him, “Everyone around here is crazy!
I’m going to call the sheriff!”. Not thinking, Harry blurts out,
“You’ve been to the old house?” Mrs. Johnson replies, “Yes.
If I hadn’t been there, someone could have been killed!” Harry asks,
“You saved Joe Haskell?” Suspicious, Mrs. Johnson puts the
phone down and asks Harry, “How did you know Joe Haskell was mixed
up in all this?”. Harry tellls her that it’s just that he knew Joe
was staying at the old house. Mrs. Johnson asks, “But why would
he be staying at the old house? He has his own place to live”.
Harry replies that Joe is sick. His mother retorts, “Not too sick
to try to kill Mr. Barnabas!”. She notices that her son, having heard
this, seems anxious to leave and accuses him of having something to
do with what happened. She accuses him of wanting to leave to tell
an accomplice what’s happened. They are interrupted by Elizabeth
and Roger coming in through the front doors. With them is Joe
Haskell. Mrs. Johnson, on seeing Joe, screams to Roger, “How can
you bring that madman into this house?!?!?”. Roger and Harry take
Joe into the drawing room and put him on the couch. Mrs. Johnson
continues to scream that Joe is a madman, that he had tried to kill
Barnabas earlier. Roger says, “That’s ridiculous!”, then asks Joe,
“Did you try to kill Barnabas?” Joe replies, “I have to kill Barnabas
Collins before he kills me!”. Roger goes to the telephone and calls
the operator, saying, “I want to speak to the police”.
