The voice continues, “Poor Maggie, Quentin doesn’t want you anymore!
He’s never stopped loving me! You can’t stop the sound of my voice!
Only death can!” Maggie screams.
Outside the door to the room, Elizabeth is passing by. She hears
the scream and exclaims, “I heard a scream! Where did it come from?”
Hoffman, who’s also in the hallway, lies, “I don’t know”. Maggie
screams again. Elizabeth exclaims, “It came from in there!” and rushes
into Angelique’s old room. She sees Maggie, runs to the window, grabs her
and and shouts, “Don’t jump, Maggie! You’ll take me with you!” Maggie
replies, “I want to die!” Elizabeth begs, “Come from the window!”,
but Maggie says, “I want to die! I have nothing to live for!” Elizabeth
asks, “Why?” Maggie replies, “Angelique told me Quentin still loves her!
She said he’ll always love her!” Elizabeth points out, “But Angelique
is dead! You know that!” Maggie says, “But she spoke the truth!
I want to die!” Elizabeth tells her, “If you do, you’ll make Quentin
feel guilty for the rest of his life. Do you want to destroy him too?”
Maggie finally comes down from the window. She moans, “Everything
she said was true! It was all true!”
Angelique, in her new room, is still chanting, “Maggie! Maggie!…”,
but Hoffman comes into the room and tells her, “She almost did it,
she almost jumped from the window, but Mrs. Stoddard came in and stopped
her”. Angelique grumbles, “Mrs. Stoddard has always been too meddlesom!
for her own good”, but Hoffman says, “I think it’s better this way.”
Angelique growls, “Maggie Collins should be dead!”, but Hoffman says,
“And have Quentin thinking about her for the rest of his life? Maggie
will never want Quentin back after what he did last night. You’ve
already won, you just don’t know it”. Angelique remarks, “It’s just
that the idea of Maggie Collins lying cold on the stones beneath my
window is such an appealing one. But you’re right. I have won, and
that’s what’s important!”
Elizabeth takes Maggie to the drawing room and puts her on a couch.
There’s a knock at the door. Elizabeth answers. It’s Barnabas.
Elizabeth asks, “Is there something wrong to make you come so late?”
Barnabas replies, “I just wanted to see about Quentin”. Elizabeth
says, “Come into the drawing room. I don’t want to leave Maggie alone
in there”. They go to the drawing room. Barnabas asks, “Is Quentin
back?” Maggie moans, “He’ll never come back as long as I’m here!”:
Barnabas asks her, “Are you all right?” Elizabeth says, “No one’s
all right after what’s happened here tonight”. They give Maggie some
brandy to calm her down. Elizabeth says, “Barnabas, why don’t you
stay with Maggie while I go prepare a place in my room for her. I don’t
want her alone tonight” and leaves. Maggie tells him, “Angelique promised
she’d return!” Barnabas asks, “Return?” Maggie continues, “She kept her
promise! I heard her voice tonight, but that wasn’t necessary. I’ve
known for a long time that she was back”. Barnabas asks, “You heard
her voice?” Maggie replies, “From her portrait, telling me she’d
never give Quentin up, telling me she was the only one Quentin loved”.
Barnabas points out, “Angelique is dead”. Maggie replies, “Then why
is she still here in this house, in every room, in every corner?” Barnabas
asks, “Do you mean her spirit?” Maggie continues, “Even Quentin is hers.
She’ll never let me have Quentin”. Barnabas remarks, “In a way, I think
you may be right. You may be more right than you know”.
Maggie is with Elizabeth preparing for bed. Elizabeth tries to
tell Maggie she should start tomorrow as if it were a new beginning,
but Maggie moans, “No, not a new begining. It’s an end. I’ve got
to accept that. Tonight I wore the dress Angelique wore last year.
Quentin saw clearly the difference between us. I’m the reason he left
and won’t come back. It’s not his fault. It’s not his fault I’m not
Angelique”. Elizabeth says, “Now stop comparing yourself to Angelique!”
Maggie replies, “Why not? Will Quentin stop?. She’s the only one he’ll
ever love!” Elizabeth says, “You mustn’t say that! You can’t let the
dead conquer the living!” Maggie says, “I just want to accept it. Please
don’t make me fight anymore. I just want to rest…”
Barnabas is in the drawing room, leafing through “The Seventh
Level of Witchcraft”. Hoffman comes into the room and says, “Mr.
Collins, I didn’t know you were back”. Barnabas replies, “I was
very anxious to hear from Elizabeth if Maggie was all right”. Hoffman
replies, “I understand. I won’t interrupt your reading. Good
night”, and turns to leave, but Barnabas stops her, “You were
very close to the late Mrs. Collins, weren’t you?” Hoffman replies,
“I was very devoted to her” Barnabas says, ” I was just looking
through this book that apparently belonged to her. Fascinating!”
Hoffman remarks, “She was interested in a variety of thing”. Barnabas
remarks, “Some of the most unusual”. Hoffman replies, “She was a most
unusual woman”. Barnabas says, “I understand she even promised to return
from the dead”. Hoffman replies, “She was just speaking figuratively, of
course. She was just talking about her love for Quentin, saying that her
love for Quentin was so strong it would survive her death. I don’t find
that so difficult to understand”. Angelique comes into the room and asks,
“What’s so difficult to understand?” Hoffman replies, “Mr. Collins wanted
to know if I ever heard your sister say she would come back from the dead”.
Angelique replies, “I’m sure you have. She was something of a romantic”.
Hoffman remarks, “Mr. Collins has been looking at one of your sister’s
books, on on witchcraft”. Angelique says to Barnabas, “Surely you don’t
that has anything to do with coming back from the dead. Perhaps you
are the romantic”. Barnabas replie, “Perhaps”. Angelique says to
Hoffman, “Oh, the bulb in my bedside lamp has gone out. Could you
have it replaced? I have some reading I want to do”. Hoffman leaves.
Angelique continues, “I find the idea of the occult boring.” Barnabas
tells her, “There are parts of this book that may interest you”. Angelique
says, “I doubt it”. Barnabas continues, “The part I was just reading
concerns the use of fire in sorcery and witchcraft.” Angelique
asks, “Why should that interest me?” Barnabas replies, “You mentioned
to me just last night your attraction to fire”. Angelique points out,
“I also said my interest was purely aesthetic”. Barnabas remarks,
“When I saw you staring into the fire, your interest seemed more than
just aestetic”. Angelique asks, “What are you implying?” Barnabas
replies, “Nothing. I’m just stating my impressions”. Angelique
says, “Too bad you never met my sister. She had a marvelous appreciation
of the preposterous.” Barnabas asks, “I’m being preposterou?” Angelique
replies, “Yes. Good Night” and leaves.
Hoffman is asking Angelique, “Does he know?” Angelique replies,
“No, but he has definite suspicions”. Hoffman remarks, “He might
be dangerous”. Angelique asks, “How?” Hoffman replies, “He might
go to Quentin with his suspicions”. Angelique says, “Quentin and
I have already finished the game of ‘Is Angelique alive?’ He became
convinced when they burned the body. Anyone who goes to him saying
I am Angelique will be laughed at”. Hoffman says, “Suppose he can
find proof?” Angelique replies, “If he gets too close to the truth,
don’t forget I have the means of dealing with him. After all, he’s
Barnabas goes to Maggie’s room and says goodnight to her. He
assures her that everything will turn out all right and leaves.
Elizabeth tells Maggie, “What a fine man he is. Doesn’t it make
any difference to you that you have friends who care for you and
want to help you? Of course it does!”
Barnabas sneaks into Angelique’s old room, stares into the eyes
of her portrait, and starts to chant, “Let me look into the eyes of
Angelique and know the truth of Angelique!”
Angelique and Hoffman are saying goodnight to one another. Suddenly,
Angelique complains, “Someone is watching me!” Hoffman points out,
“There’s no one here but us”. Angelique continues, “I feel someone
staring at me, looking into my eyes! My eyes! They’re burning!
They’re on fire! I can’t bear it!” and runs from the room.
From Angelique’s old room, Barnabas continues to stare at the
portrait of Angelique and chant, “It is the eyes of Angelque I’m
looking into! It is the truth of Angelique I must know!” Angelique
comes running into the room screaming, “My eyes! Stop looking at
me!” Barnabas turns and asks, “Why? Because I see Angelique?”
Angelique exclaims, “You! You know!” Barnabas replies, “Yes,
Angelique, I know!”

Angelique asks, “How did you discover I was Angelique?” Barnabas
replies, “I am an astute observer”. Angelique asks, “Who are you, or
perhaps I should asks, what are you?” Barnabas replies, “I am a friend
of Quentin and Maggie’s”. Angelique says, “Any man who can stare into
the my eyes through the eyes of a portrait in another room is not human”.
Barnabas says, “I want you to stop this plot of yours”. Angelique
feigns ignorance, “What plot?” Barnabas continues, “The plot to destroy
Maggie and take Quentin for yourself!” Angelique asks, “And if I refuse”
Barnabas replies, “Then I will be forced to stop you myself!” Angelique
asks, “How? By telling Quentin? He’s convinced I’m Alexis. Tell him
I’m really Angelique and he’ll laugh at you!” Barnabas replies, “There are
other ways to stop you”. Angelique warns him, “You seem confident in your
powers, whatever they are, but don’t forget that I also have powers, and
they are stronger than yours!” Barnabas calmly replies, “We’ll see,
Angelique, we’ll see!” and leaves.
Angelique makes a telephone call. A man answers on the other end,
“Hello?” Angelique replies, “Father?” The man, Timothy Elliot Stokes,
asks, “Who is this?” Angelique asks, “Don’t you recognize my voice?”
Stokes replies, “Alexis, of course I heard you’ve come to Collinwood”.
Angelique asks, “I want to see you immediately!” Stokes replies,
“You should know by now I’m not interested in seeing you”. Angelique says,
“What if I told you I had some information about Angelique?” Stokes
asks, “Angelique, what about Angelique?” Angelique replies, “Meet me
in Angelique’s old room at Collinwood and you’ll find out”. Stokes
says, “I’ll be there immediately!”
Quentin finally returns to Collinwood. He runs into Barnabas in
the foyer. Barnabas says, “Quentin! We’ve been worried about you!”
Quentin asks, “Where’s Maggie?” Barnabas replies, “Upstairs in bed.
Maybe you should go see her”. Quentin replies, “In a moment”, and
starts for the drawing room, for a drink, obviously. Barnabas asks,
“Quentin, did know Alexis before she came to Collinwood?” Quentin
replies, “No, why?” Barnabas replies, “Just curious. Good night”
Angelique is waiting in her old room. Timothy Elliot Stokes comes.
Angelique exclaims, “Father!” Stokes asks, “What is this information
you have about your sister?” Angelique asks, “No warm greeting after
all this time?” Stokes replies, “A show of affection would be more than
hypocritical. You know how we feel about each other”. Angelique says,
“Well, let congratulate you on the success of your experiment! I am
Angelique! I have come back!” Stokes exclaims, “You’re Angelique!”
Angelique replies, “Yes, but for safety, always call me Alexis”. She
tells him what happened, how Alexis opened her grave and how she stole
Alexis’ lifeforce to come back. Stokes is saddened that it was Alexis,
“even though she was only a step daughter and I didn’t like her”. Angelique
tells him, “Quentin has married again. I want to get him back, but someone
is standing in my way, someone with supernatural powers”. Stokes asks,
“Who?” Angelique replies, “Barnabas Collins”. Stokes remarks, “That’s
the name of the man in Willie Loomis’ book”. Angelique tells him, “This
Barnabas Collins claims to be a descendant of his. It’s very strange
the way he just arrived here, and his fascination with this room.
There have been some very odd things happening in this room. Quentin’s
seen it, and I’ve seen it too”. She explains, “One day I opened the
doors to this room and found it empty of furniture. I saw Hoffman
in here, but she was dressed differently, and her hair was different.
Besides, I had just left Hoffman downstairs…” Stokes exclaims,
“Fascinating! Fascinating!” Angelique asks, “Do you know what it is?”
Stokes replies, “The theory of Paralell Time. There’s a theory that
there’s another time band where we all exist, but live different lives
because we’ve made different decisions…”
Quentin goes up to the master bedroom. Maggie is sleeping peacefully
in bed. Quentin just stands there looking at her silently. Finally,
Maggie awakens and exclaims, “Quentin! Darling, you’re home! I was
so worried, so afraid that something had happened to you! Why did you
do that, suddenly leave the house like that?” Quentin asks, “Maggie,
did anyone tell you whose dress you were wearing?” Maggie replies,
“Yes. It was the one Angelique wore to the part last year”. Quentin asks,
“Then why did you wear it?” Maggie explains, “I didn’t know it until
afterwards. Alexis selected it from a trunk”. She continues, “I know
any mention of Angelique is painful for you, but I nearly killed myself
last night”. She recounts what happened, how she heard Angelique’s
voice taunting her and telling her to jump from the window. Quentin
exclaims, “That’s impossible! You were imagining it!” Maggie insists,
“Quentin, I didn’t! Doesn’t it mean anything to you that you might
have come home and found me dead under the window of Angelique’s old
room?” Quentin says, “I’m trying to understand you. I’m trying to
make you happy, but everything I do ends up hurting you. What more
can I do?” Maggie sadly replies, “I don’t know. I don’t know anymore”.
Stokes goes to the Loomis House and snoops around. Barnabas comes out
from the door to the left of the fireplace and asks, “Who are you?”
Stokes replies, “I am Timothy Elliot Stokes. The gentleman who owns
this house is Willie Loomis, a friend of mine”. Barnabas asks, “Are you
so certain of his friendship that you come into his house and roam around
at such a strange hour, just before dawn?” Stokes replies, “Willie does
keeps strange hours”. Stokes remarks, “From the way you’re dressed, you
look as if you were from the 18th century”. Barnabas replies, “There was
a costume party at Collinwood last night”. Stokes remarks, “Yes, it was
started by Angelique, my daughter”. Barnabas says, “So you are her father.”
Stokes corrects him, “Stepfather. I beg your pardon, but have we met
before?” Barnabas replies, “No. Why do you ask?” Stokes replies, “When
you first saw me in here, it look as though you recognized me”. Barnabas
lies, “No, I was just surprised to see someone in this room”. Stokes
asks, “Is Willie in?” Barnabas replies, “He is, but he’s sleeping
and doesn’t want to be disturbed”. The clock strikes the hour.
Barnabas excuses himself, “Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to get
some sleep myself” and leaves.
At the Longworth lab, Sabrina is asking Cyrus, “Cyrus, what’s
happening to us? Something has to be wrong. We haven’t seen one
another in days! Cyrus, is there someone else?” Cyrus asks, “Do
you really want me to answer that?” Sabrina replies, “No, because
it’s a stupid question. It IS a stupid question, isn’t it, Cyrus?”
There’s a knock at the door upstairs. Cyrus tells Sabrina, “Go and
answer the door”. Sabrina does so. Cyrus hears Sabrina’s voice
saying, “Hello, Maggie, won’t you come in?”
Maggie is telling Cyrus, “When I told Quentin about the voice from
the portrait, he said I was imagining it! I didn’t! How can I convince
him?” Cyrus replies, “Maybe you can’t. Maybe you’ll just have to accept
the fact that he loves Angelique”. Maggie is surprised, “I can’t believe
you said that!” Cyrus continues, “There are other men in the world than
Quentin. Isn’t it possible there’s another man in the world would could
make you as happy as Quentin?” Maggie remarks, “Cyrus! You don’t sound
like yourself!” Suddenly, Cyrus grabs his stomach in pain and tells
Maggie, “I have things to do right now. Please come back later. I’m
sure you understand”. Maggie leaves.
Cyrus is stumbling around lab in pain, banging into things. Sabrina,
hearing the noise, comes running, “Cyris, what’s wrong?” Cyrus starts
transforming into John Yaeger before her very eyes. Sabrina gasps, “No,
Cyrus, no!” The tranformation completes. John Yaeger replies, “Yes!”
Sabrina says, “Cyrus, I don’t believe it!” Yaeger replies, “Yaeger,
the names John Yaeger!” Sabrina starts to say, “The experiment!
The compound…” Yaeger interrupts her, “are succeeding beyond my
wildest dreams!” Yaeger turns to leave. Sabrina begs, “Cyrus, don’t
go! I love you no matter what happens! I understand!” Yaeger replies,
“You understand?! You couldn’t possibly understand!” From upstairs,
Maggie’s voice calls out, “Cyrus, are you down there?” Yaeger tells
Sabrina, “Go find out what she wants!” and hides behind a wall. Maggie
comes down into the lab and asks, “Where’s Cyrus?” Sabrina replies,
“He’s not here. He just left by the side door”. Maggie asks, “Has
he been ill lately?” Sabrina replies, “No, why?” Maggie replies,
“Because he’s never acted the way he did earlier”. They are interrupted
by Quentin coming down into the lab asking, “Is Cyrus here?” Sabrina
replies, “No, he went to the chemist”. Quentin says, “I’ll wait”,
but Sabrina tells him, “He won’t be back till tonight”. She tells
Quentin and Maggie, “Why don’t you two go upstairs and I’ll join you
later”. Quentin remarks, “Is something wrong? You seem nervous”.
Sabrina lies, “I’ve just been working too hard”. Quentin asks Maggie,
“What are you doing here?” Maggie reluctantly tells him she came to
tell Cyrus about hearing Angelique’s voice. Quentin angrily growls,
“We finished discussing that last night!” Maggie insists, “It happened!”,
but Quentin sternly tells her, “I don’t ever want to hear about it again!”
From his hiding place, John Yaeger thinks to himself, “Don’t worry,
Maggie, soon, you won’t have to put up with the likes of Quentin any
longer. John Yaeger will see to that!”
It is later at Collinwood. Quentin is about to leave the house.
Barnabas comes and says, “I was away all day. How’s Maggie”. Quentin
replies, “A little better. She’s in bed. The sleep will do her good”.
Quentin tells Barnabas, “I was just on my way to see Dr. Longworth”. They
John Yaeger sneakes into Collinwood. He sneaks into Maggie’s room.
He looks down on the sleeping Maggie and thinks to himself, “Now, John

Yaeger thinks to himself, “I want to take her out of this house, but
where? I need to find a place!” Maggie’s phone rings. Yaeger quickly
hides behind the curtains. Maggie awakens and answers the phone, “Hello?
Quentin?…Where are you?…What’s wrong with Sabrina?…No, of course
you should stay and find out whatever you can…Would you like me to come
to the lab? If I could do anything to help, I’d be glad to come…I
understand…Good Night”. Right after she hangs up, there’s a knock at
the door. It’s Daniel. Maggie asks, “Daniel, what are you doing up so
late?” Daniel asks, “Where’s father?” Maggie tells him, “He’s at Cyrus’,
why?” Daniel says, “I’ll go get Uncle Roger”, but Maggie tells him, “I’ll
be glad to help you if I can”. Daniel tells her, “I was looking out the
window and saw the figure of a man. He was coming across the terrace
towards the French windows”. Maggie suggests, “Maybe it was the watchman”,
but Daniel replies, “No, he was bigger than Rick, much bigger”. Maggie
tells Daniel, “Let’s go find Roger”. After they leave, Yaeger comes out
from behind the curtains and steals Maggie’s comb, hairbrush and mirror.
At the lab, Sabrina is looking through Cyrus’ scientific notebooks.
She remarks, “No record of his experiment! If only I had known what he was
doing, I might have been able to stop him!” Suddenly, she hears a voice
behind her say, “So! Searching through the records?” She looks up and
sees that it’s John Yaeger. Sabrina exclaims, “Cyrus!” Yaeger replies,
“Don’t call me that! It’s not my name! Where’s Quentin Collins?”
Sabrina replies, “I made him leave”. Yaeger asks, “Did you tell him
anything?” Sabrina replies, “No, I wouldn’t betray you”. Yaeger says,
“Fool! No wonder Cyrus found you boring!” Sabrina says, “He didn’t!”
Yaeger says, “You didn’t know about his visits to the Eagle to see Buffie
Harrington, did you?” Sabrina insists, “Cyrus loved me!” Yaeger
replies, “Then you’ll have to find someone else. You’re never going
to see Cyrus Longworth again! I’ve murdered him!” Sabrina exclaims, “No!
Cyrus hasn’t been destroyed! He’s still here!” Yaeger says, “No! I’ve
destroyed him and those detestable traits of his are gone!” Sabrina insists,
“No, he’s still here! You were Yaeger before, and you came back”. Yaeger
says, “And I hated every moment of it!” Sabrina asks, “Then why didn’t
you stay Yaeger?” Yaeger replies, “I needed Cyrus’ body to escape”. Sabrina
asks, “Escape from what?” Yaeger holds up his walking stick and pops the
sword out and says, “It went into the body so easily, then a scream in
the night!” Sabrina exclaims, “Horace Gladstone!” Yaeger replies, “Yes,
he was my first victim. Since then, I’ve been longing for another. Are
you going to be its next victim, Sabrina, are you?”
Yaeger asks, “Frightened? Good!” He retracts the blade and says, “You
think too much. You’re just like Cyrus”. Sabrina asks, “Why did you kill
Horace Gladstone?” Yaeger replies, “Because he dared try to blackmail
me!” Sabrina moans, “There must be some way to turn you back into
Cyrus, there must! You must be Cyrus again!” Yaeger laughs. Sabrina
continues, “You must! The police must be after you. I’ll help! I’ll
do anything you want me to if you become Cyrus!” Yaeger replies, “I
can’t! I have too many things to do that Cyrus won’t!” Sabrina promises,
“I’ll be here for you. I’ll do anything to help you”. Yaeger says,
“You love him that much? Well, there is someting you can do. You’ll
be here at this time every night, and sometimes I’ll need help, and when
I do, I’ll come through that door, and you’ll be here to help me”.
He turns to leave. Sabrina asks, “Where are you going?” Yaeger replies,
“I’m going to take something, something that Cyrus Longworth is too
timid to take!” He warns her, “Now, not a word, or you’ll end up like
our friend Horace Gladstone!”
Maggie is in her room. Daniel comes in. Maggie asks, “Have you seen
Hoffman?” Daniel replies, “No, why?” Maggie replies, “My comb and
brush are gone, and my mirror is missing too. I was wondering if she
took them”. She asks, “Do you think you saw an intruder last night?”
Daniel replies, “No, not after you and Uncle Roger showed me I was
wrong”. He tells her, “I have something for you” and gives her
a shell. He asks, “Do you like it?” She replies, “It’s beautiful!”
He tells her, “I found it this morning. It’s for last night”.
Maggie tells him, “I have the feeling we’re going to become good
Yaeger is with a man in the basement of a house with man named
Aldon Wicks. Wicks tells Yaeger, “If you like the looks of this
place, we can reach a good deal. Most people like to be closer
to town”. Yaeger replies, “I prefer to be alone”. Wicks replies,
“Then you’ll like it. No one’s lived here since my grandfather
died.” Yaeger opens the door to a room and asks, “What’s this room?”
Wicks replies, “My grandmother used to use it to store things.
She canned a lot of things”. Yaeger looks at the door and asks that
a new one be put in, explaining, “I’m a scientist, and I think this
would be the perfect place for a lab”. He gestures towards the door
again and asks, “Is that the only door to this room?” Wicks replies
that it is. Yaeger says, “I take it it’s sound proof?” Wicks replies
that it is. Yaeger remarks, “My work deals with sound. I measure
the speed of high velocity tones”. Wicks asks, “When will you want
to move in?” Yaeger replies, “Immediately. I going to go home,
pack up, and take immediate residence”. He gives Wicks some further
instructions about the room, “I want a cot here. I often work late
and get very tired. And a comfortable rocking chair, very conducive
to meditation. And a mirror. This room will make a perfect laboratory!
Perfect for my needs, perfect!”
Daniel goes to Maggie’s room and tells her, “Maggie, I saw Hoffman.
She doesn’t know where your comb, brush and mirror. When I told her
they were missing, she was very surprised”. Maggie remarks, “There
must be some explanation!” David says, “Maggie, you’ve been here
long enough to know that things happen in this house, strange things.
Sometimes I get a feeling before they happen. I have the feeling
that something’s going to happen, something terrible!”
Later, Yaeger returns to the basement room of the house he’s renting.
He looks around and finds that, as instructed, a heavier door with
a bolt has been put in, and a cot and a rocking chair has been put into
the room. He takes Maggie’s things out of his pocket and places them
on a table. Aldon Wicks comes in and asks, “Is everything OK?” Yaeger
replies, “Perfect!” He asks Wicks, “Are you leaving tonight?” Wicks
replies, “Yes. I’ve got everything packed up, and I’ve told all my
friends”. Wicks remarks, “You know, this place doesn’t really look
like what I thought a lab would look like. What kind of experiments
did you say you do?” Yaeger lies, “I didn’t”. Wicks says, “I would
guess something with animals”. Yaeger says, “Why do you say that?”
Wicks replies, “Because of that bolt you had me put on the door”.
Yaeger says, “Actually, I’m going to use it as a dungeon”. Thinking
Yaeger’s joking, Wicks jokes, “Next thing you’re going to tell me
you’re going to kidnap a fairy princess and hold her here”. Yaeger
replies, “That’s exactly what I’m going to do”. Yaeger unsheaths
his sword, saying, “You’ve already said goodbye to all your friends.
I guess they’re not going to miss you”. Wicks says, “Hey, I don’t
want any trouble”. Yaeger replies, “Don’t worry. There won’t be
any!” and stabs him.
At Collinwood, Maggie is saying to Daniel, “See? Nothing’s happened”.
Daniel replies, “Not yet”. Maggie says, “When I was a little girl, I used
to get the feeling that something was going to happen too, but it never
did”. Daniel replies, “Mine usually come true!”
Later that night, the phone in Maggie’s room rings. She answer.
On the other end, Yaeger is speaking using Cyrus’ voice, “Maggie!
I’m in town! I must see you immediately!” Maggie asks, “What about?”
Yaeger replies, “I can’t tell you over the phone. Can you meet me?”
Maggie asks, “At the lab?” Yaeger replies, “No, Sabrina will be there.
I don’t want her to know about this. I don’t want anyone to know.
Maggie, it’s vital I meet you. Can you meet me at Widow’s Hill
at 11:00?” Maggie says, “I don’t know what this is all about, but
I’ll meet you”. Yaeger tells her, “It’s vital you not tell anyone,
or I might be in danger”. Maggie says, “I’ll be there”.

Maggie hangs up, and immediately hears a voice behind her say,
“Who were you talking to?” She turns and sees Quentin standing there.
Maggie doesn’t answer. Quentin asks, “Maggie, what’s wrong? I asked
you who you were talking to”. Maggie lies, “Oh, it was just Sabrina”.
Quentin asks, “Did she say what was wrong with her yesterday?” Maggie
replies, “No”. Quentin asks, “Does she know where Cyrus is?” Again
Maggie says, “No”. Quentin remarks, “If I didn’t know better, I’d say
they were fighting, but those two would never fight. Something’s wrong.
I wish I knew what it was so I could help”. He asks Maggie, “Is there
something you aren’t telling me?” Maggie changes the subject, “My silver
brush and mirror are missing! I don’t understand!” Quentin explodes,
“I hate it when someone uses that phrase! They always start talking
about the supernatural next! Are you accusing the resident ghost of
stealing them?” Maggie replies, “Of course not”. Quentin excuses himself,
saying, “I’ve got to go help Daniel with his homework”. As he is leaving,
he remarks, “I’m glad to see you and Daniel are gettng along so well”.
Barnabas is in the drawing room. Angelique comes in and asks, “Well,
have you come to see me, Mr. Collins?” Barnabas replies, “No, I came
to see Quentin”. Angelique asks, “Why? Are you going to tell him I’m
Angelique returned from the dead?” Barnabas replies, “No, you’ve already
told me what would happen if I did that”. Angelique remarks, “You listen
well”. Barnabas replies, “I always listen to my enemies well”. Angelique
changes the subject, “Mr. Collins, have you ever heard of Parallel time?
There’s a theory that there’s another band of time where we all live
different lives because we’ve made different decisions. Also, that there
are places where one can move from one band to another”. Barnabas lies,
“That hardly seems possible”. Angelique asks, “Even to you?”, then
remarks, “There’s a room in the East Wing that changes to paralell time
occasionally. I wonder what would happen if someone were in that room
at such a time”. Barnabas replies, “You’d have to stay in that room
to find out”. Angelique asks, “Is that what you were doing when you came
from your time?” Barnabas replies, “What are you implying? I can assure
you I’m not a time traveller”. Quentin comes into the room. Angelique
leaves the room to let him and Barnabas talk. But she doesn’t really
leave them in private. She comes back after a few seconds and listens
through the closed drawing room doors…
Barnabas tells Quentin, “Things have been happening. I think you should
take Maggie away from here. Quentin says, “Nothing’s happened recently”,
but Barnabas says, “She did hear Angelique’s voice the other night”.
Quentin asks, “How did you know about that?” Barnabas replies, “She told
me. There is a spirit here that wants her out of this house”. Quentin
says, “I have the feeling Maggie herself is responsible for what’s been
happening.” He points out, “None of these things started happening until
Maggie got there. Maybe she’s somehow responsible”. Barnabas is aghast.
He tells Quentin, “Don’t doubt your wife. But you must suspect everyone
else!” Quentin asks, “Do you have anyone in mind?” Barnabas replies, “Yes,
but I cannot tell you who it is without proof. Now I must go see Elizabeth”.
Hearing this, Angelique quickly goes into the room under the stairs.
Angelique goes into the drawing room and tells Quentin, “I just heard
you talking to Barnabas, and I think he means ME! Ever since he’s come
here, he’s been against me! I don’t know why! All I want is the best
for you and Maggie!” Quentin holds her and reassures her, “Now, now,
all any of use wants is the best for one another”.
It is 10:00. Yaeger is in the basement room of his rented house
thinking, “In an hour Maggie will come to me! Will she like this room?
I must make if more comfortable! There must be everything here that
Yaeger sneaks into Maggie’s room at Collinwood, takes one of her
suitcases, puts it on the bed, then starts taking clothing out of
drawers and putting them into the suitcase…
In the drawing room, Quentin is telling Angelique, “I won’t have
Barnabas upsetting you. If he gives you any more trouble, let me
know”. Maggie comes into the room . Anglique leaves. Maggie starts
to tell Quentin, “Quentin, I have an errand to run”. Quentin replies,
“Not before we talk. Why did you tell Barnabas you heard Angelique’s
voice?” Maggie replies, “Because he was here!” Quentin grumbles,
“That’s no reason!” Maggie replies, “I thought it was! Quentin, you
still don’t believe it happened!” Quentin says, “I just don’t want
you telling a perfect stranger”. Maggie replies, “I wouldn’t call
Barnabas Collins that!” Quentin says, “I don’t want to fight about
this anymore!” Maggie replies, “Our fights keep going on and on because
none of them are ever resolved! You keep doubting everything I say!”
Quentin shouts, “And with reason!” and storms off in anger.
Yeager is packing the suitcase with Maggie’s stuff when suddenly
Angelique comes in looking for Maggie. She asks, “Who are you? No,
you don’t have to tell me. You’re John Yaeger!” Yaeger asks, “How
do you know?” Angelique replies, “I collect information. Mrs. Collins
confides in me. You and I can be friends, John Yaeger”. Yaeger remarks,
“You make up you mind quickly”. Angelique replies, “I recognize evil
when I see it. You have a plan, and I want to know what it is. Tell
me your plan, and tell it quickly, before someone else comes in here…
Maggie goes to the Old House to talk with Barnabas. She is telling
him, “It’s no good. I can’t reach him. I can’t even come here anymore.
I’m not supposed to confide in you anymore. He doesn’t like even that!”
Barnabas remarks, “I’m sorry Quentin feels that way.” Maggie continues,
“I need help!” Barnabas tells her, “There’s one person at Collinwood
You must not trust”. Maggie asks, “Hoffman?” Barnabas replies, “No,
not Hoffman, although she’s involved somehow. Maggie, Alexis is your
enemy”. Maggie exclaims, “You’re wrong! She’s been so friendly to me!”
Barnabas explains, “It’s all part of her plan”. Maggie says, “I’m sorry,
but I can’t believe that without some proof. Do you have any?”
Barnabas sadly replies, “No, not that you’d believe”.
In Maggie’s room, Yaeger is caressing a necklace belonging to Maggie,
saying, “Everything she’s touched I must have! I want her so much!”
Angelique replies, “And you shall have her! I can arrange it so that
Maggie leaves the house of her own will hating Quentin, and that he won’t
want her back!” Yaeger asks, “One question. Why did you come into this
room tonight?” Angelique replies, “I needed to borrow something from
Maggie, something that will serve both our plans”. She opens a drawer
and takes one of Maggie’s handkerchiefs and continues, “This will do”.
Maggie is in her room. Suddenly she hears a voice saying, “Maggie!
Quentin doesn’t love you!”
Down in the drawing room, Angelique is using Maggie’s handkerchief
to cast a spell to cause her to hear her voice, “He doesn’t care enough
about you to help you!”
Maggie shouts, “Where are you?” The voice continues, “I am watching
you! Watching you until you leave!” Maggie shouts, “I’ll never leave!
Stop it!” Quentin comes into the room and asks, “Maggie, who are you
talking to?” Angelique’s voice continues, “Maggie, Quentin hates you!”
Maggie asks Quentin, “Did you hear that? Did you hear that?!” Quentin
asks, “Maggie, what am I supposed to hear?” Anglique’s voice laughs.
Maggie replies, “Her laughter! She’s in this room!” Quentin asks,
“Who’s laughter?” The laughter stops. Maggie replies, “She was in
this room!” Quentin asks, “Who?” Maggie replies, “Angelique!”
Quentin starts to say, “Now, Maggie…”, but Maggie interrupts him,
“Why don’t you believe me?” Quentin replies, “Because it isn’t true!”
Maggie says, “Quentin, are you in a conspiracy to drive me mad?”
Quentin asks, “How can you say that?” Maggie replies, “Because sometimes
I think it’s true!” and storms off in anger.
At the farmhouse basement, Yaeger hangs Maggie’s dresses in the room,
caresses one of her necklaces on his face, remarks, “Widow’s Hill! How
perfect!” then leaves for his meeting with Maggie at Widow’s Hill.
It is 11:00 Collinwood, Maggie is leaving for her appointent with
Cyrus as Widow’s Hill. Barnabas sees her in the foyer heading for
the front door and asks, “Maggie! What’s wrong?”, but Maggie just
replies, “Nothing!” and runs off.
At Widow’s Hill, Yaeger is hiding behind some trees. Maggie arrives
and calls, “Cyrus? Cyrus?” Yaeger replies, “Over here, Maggie!”
Maggie looks and sees Yaeger come out from behind the trees and screams…
At Collinwood, Barnabas tells Quentin about Maggie leaving, “I tried
to stop her, but she wouldn’t listen”. Quentin calmly replies, “She’ll
Yaeger takes Maggie to the dungeon. Maggie asks, “Where’s Cyrus?”
Yaeger tells her, “You’ll find everything you need here”. Maggie
repeats, “Where’s Cyrus?”, crying. Yaeger remarks, “I never thought
I’d mind seeing you cry. Maggie, you’re going to learn to like this
place” and leaves. Maggie shouts, “Let me go! Let me go!”

Maggie finds the shell that Daniel gave her in her dungeon. Yeager
comes in with dinner for her. It is curry, which he refers to as her
favorite. She warns her that Quentin will be coming to look for her.
Yeager replies that he knows that she left with both she and Quentin in
anger, and that Quentin won’t be coming after her. Maggie is surprised
and scared that Yeager knows so much about her. She asks when he’s going
to let her go. He replies after she falls in love with him and agree to
go away with him. She tells him that that will never happen. He angrily
At Collinwood, Elizabeth is talking to Angelique about Maggie’s
leaving. She is upset that Quentin cares so little about it. Angelique
sees Yeager standing outside the window and makes an excuse to leave
and meets him outside. Yeager tells him about how difficult it has
proven to get Maggie to respond to him. Angelique tells him that it’ll
take time and to try harder. She tells him that the first step is to
sever all Maggie’s ties to Collinwood.
In the dungeon, Maggie looks for a way out but finds none. Yeager
returns and tries to force her to write a letter to Quentin saying
she no longer loves him and is staying away forever. She refuses, saying
she won’t do that even if he threatens to kill her. He tells her it’s
not her he’ll kill if she refuses, but Quentin. Faced with that threat,
Maggie writes the letter.
At Collinwood, Elizabeth calls Maggie’s sister in New York to see if
she’s there, but finds that she not. She tells Roger how worried she is
about Maggie’s leaving, but Roger tells her he thinks it’s better that
she’s gone. Angelique, coming down the stairs, suddenly starts to feel
the coldness of the grave again. She goes into the drawing room and
finds Roger in there alone, Elizabeth having left. She seduces Roger
and they embrace, but just as they are about to kiss, Elizabeth returns
and they quickly separate. Angelique leaves.
Angelique goes to her father and tells him what happened, saying
that somewhere there lies a stranger whom she seduced and killed. She
tells him she can’t stand this any longer and asks for his help, saying
that since it was he who brought her back from the dead, he should know
how to help. He tells her that alas he cannot, and explains that he
did not do it alone. She asks to know who he did it with. He tells her
to look behind the curtain. She draws the curtain he points to and finds
a door behind it. She opens the door…

…and walks in. He father walks in behind her. On a table, covered
by a cloth, lies a body. Angelique’s father explains to her that he
used the woman’s life force to bring her back from the dead, and that
the periodic cold she feels is the body trying to get the lifeforce
back and that there’s nothing that can be done about it. He warns her
that if the body is destroyed, both it and she, Angelique, will be
At Collinwood, Quentin explains to Barnabas that he’s not going to
search for Maggie because she left of her own will. Barnabas is
incredulous, so Quentin gives him a letter from her to read. Barnabas
reads it but is still not convinced that her leaving was of her own
will. He tells Quentin that he is convinced that she has an enemy who
is responsible for all this. Angelique, eavesdropping outside, stomps
in and indignantly asks, “And who do you think that is? ” . Quentin
gets angry with Barnabas for accusing innocent lil’ ‘Alexis’ and stomps
out of the room. Barnabas accuses Angelique of being behing Maggie’s
disappearance and vows to do something about it.
Angelique goes to her old room to talk to Julia. From outside the
the door in the other parallel time (ours), out Julia sees them. She
is shocked to hear Angelique tell the other Julia ,”Barnabas must be
destroyed!”. The other Julia warns that they had better be careful,
that Barnabas seems to possess powers. The wonder what the source of
these powers is, what the secret of Barnabas is.
Stokes comes to Collinwood. Quentin entertains him in the drawing
room. He wonders what Stokes is doing here, as he never had a very
good relatiohship with her. Alexis comes into the drawing room and
Quentin leaves to let them talk. Alexis becomes angry and asks him
what he’s doing here. He tells her that now that she’s the mistress of
Collinwood, he thinks himself entitled to take benefit of its luxuries.
She tells him that she doesn’t want him to come here, that she thinks
it would be better if he didn’t, saying it’s a known fact that Alexis
didn’t get along with her father. Stokes replies that they should
fake a reconciliation. They have a big argument about this. Angry,
Stokes vows to teach Angelique a lesson.
Quentin runs into Barnabas again and tells him he’s now certain that
Maggie planned to leave, that most of her things are missing and that
she must have sent them ahead of her even before their argument.
Back at home, Stokes goes to the body in the room behind the curtains
and casts a spell…
Angelique is talking to Quentin in the drawing room. Quentin mentions
that he is going to drive to Bangor. Angelique, obviously trying to get
closer to him, tells him she’d like to do some shopping and asks if she
can hitch a ride with him. Suddenly, she almost faints and complains of
feeling terrible. Quentin guides her to a chair. Just as suddenly as it
started, whatever happened stops. Angelique tells Quentin she’s all
right and that all she needs is some fresh air. She tells him she’s
changed her mind about shopping and leaves.
Angelique goes to her father’s house. He tells her he was responsible
for what happened and tells her he hopes she’s learned her lesson.
Quentin writes a letter to Maggie telling her he doesn’t want her
back and tells Julia to mail it (to her sister’s address in NY).
He puts it on the foyer table and calls for Hoffman to come and mail
Barnabas sneaks into Angelique’s old room and searches around, looking
for evidence. He finds that the top right hand desk drawer is locked and
jimmies it open with a knife. He finds Angelique’s diary inside and
reads it. He is startled to find a passage saying “He says he knows a
way to overcome death.”. Barnabas wonders who the ‘He’ is. Realizing
that he’s forgotten to lock the door, he puts the diary down and goes
to lock it. Suddenly, he finds that the room has become unfurnished.
He’s back in his own time. He opens the doors and finds Julia standing
there. She happily exclaims, “You’re back”. Barnabas replies, “But
Maggie’s in trouble in the other time!! How can I help her? How?”

Barnabas explains to Julia that Maggie’s in danger in the other time.
Julia tells him that she agrees that Angelique must be evil and dangerous
in the other time too, telling him about overhearing her telling the
other Julia that he, Barnabas, must be destroyed. Barnabas tells her he
must go back to help Maggie. Julia tells him she’d like to go too to
help him but he tells her that would be too dangerous because unlike
him, she has a double in the other time and they have no idea what would
happen – perhaps she might even die. He tells her to go downstairs and
get the key and lock the door to this room so that no one else can come
in and get trapped in the other time.
In the other time, Julia and Angelique go into her old room to talk
privately. Julia tells Angelique that she has given the letter to Yeager
as instructed. They find the diary on the desk and realize it must have
been Barnabas who was reading it. They are puzzled that he just left it
lying there and did not take it. They take it and leave.
When Julia comes back with the key, she sees Barnabas in the other
In the other time, Barnabas looks around for the diary but does not
find it. Julia comes in and asks him what he’s doing. Barnabas tells
her that he left a book in here and is looking for it. He starts to
hypnotize her but Angelique comes in and interrupts him.
Yaeger goes into Maggie’s cell. She begs him to let her go, saying
she has a fever. He feels her forehead and finds that she does, but
instead of letting her go, he tells her he’ll go get some medicine.
Yeager reads Quentin’s letter to her. Maggie, wondering where he got the
letter from, tells him she doesn’t believe it’s from Quentin, but he
shows her the letter. It’s in Quentin’s handwriting…
After Yaeger leaves, Maggie decides that the only way to escape is
to get him to take her out of the dungeon…
Angelique goes into her current room and finds Barnabas going through
her things. She demands what he’s doing. He bluntly tells her that
he’s looking for her diary, that he found the part about overcoming
death very interesting. After Barnabas leaves, Angelique tells Julia
that they must do something about him. She tells Julia that the ‘curse’
that the people in the other time spoke about regarding him might be of
use and that they must find out what it is. She tells Julia to follow
him and find out about him…
Yaeger returns with the medicine. After Maggie takes it, she lies
that Quentin’s letter has convinced her to go away with him. Yaeger is
at first suspicious at her rapid conversion, but she manages to convince
him that she is sincere. She admits that she doesn’t yet love him, but
that there is clearly nothing for her here and perhaps, in time, love
will come. Yaeger gleefully leaves to make preparations to leave.
Barnabas leaves Collinwood. Julia follows him. Barnabas goes into
the the old house and goes into the secret room behind the bookcase.
Unbeknownst to him, Julia is spying on him from outside, looking through

Julia vow to come back when Barnabas isn’t home and see what’s behind
the bookcase and leaves. Barnabas comes back out with his cane, thinking
to himself that it would be of use in fighting whomever has taken Maggie
without arousing suspicions as his vampire powers would.
Maggie, using a nail file, tries to pick the lock.
Elizabeth and Sabrina return from a concert to the lab. They go down
to the lab, where Sabrina has left her purse. Yeager comes to the lab
and finds them there. He tells Sabrina he has some ‘data’ to discuss
with her. Elizabeth leaves. Sabrina again begs ‘Cyrus’ to let her help
him. Yaeger tells him she can. He writes a check, in Cyrus’s handwriting,
and gives it to her, telling her to cash it and seen him a cashier’s
check to him in New York. She looks at it and is shocked. It is his
entire account. He also unlocks the armoire containing Yaeger’s expensive
clothes and tells her to send them to New York too…
At Collinwood, Julia asks Elizabeth if she’s seen Barnabas. Elizabeth
replies that she hasn’t, that he’s probably out looking for Maggie.
Julia tells Elizabeth that she doesn’t trust Barnabas, that she finds his
Peru story(he claimed to be descended from a son of the original Barnabas
who had gone to Peru to look for gold and was recorded as being lost but
actually wasn’t) suspicious and that they should perhaps check him out.
Elizabeth angrily tells her Barnabas is a Collins and that should be
enough to ensure trust, as the Collins name guarantees integrity.
After Julia leaves, Elizabeth thinks to herself that Barnabas IS a
strange man, especially in his strange insistance, without any evidence,
that something has happened to Maggie. She dozes off and has a dream in
which she and Sabrina go down into Cyrus’s lab again, but this time find
it in shambles. They find Maggie, dead, lying amid the debris….
Elizabeth wakes up and screams “Maggie !”. Julia, hearing this, comes
and asks her what’s the matter. Elizabeth replies, “Nothing”, gets her
coat and leaves out the front door…
Maggie finally succeeds in picking the lock and gets out of the
dungeon but is collared by Yaeger outside. He calls her a liar, drags
her back into the dungeon, ties her up and tells her he’s going to
punish her by killing Quentin. Unbeknownst to him, Sabrina has followed
him and is listening from the stairs…
Elizabeth goes to the old house and asks Barnabas if he’s found
Maggie. He replies no. She tells him about the terrible dream she’s
just had. He remarks, “Cyrus’s lab ? Why there ? “. She tells him it
must be because she and Sabrina had been there earlier, and that she
had met John Yeager there and that she found him to be a most
disagreeable and frightening man and that must have caused the dream.
Cyrus, in the dungeon with Maggie, hears a noise coming from the
stairs and goes to investigate. He finds no one there, but finds lying
on the stairs the check he gave Sabrina to cash and realizes she
must have followed him…
Barnabas, intrigued by Elizabeth’s dream and seeing Yeager
at the lab, goes there to investigate. He sees the open armoire and
figures that the clothes therein must be Yeagers, as Cyrus would never
wear such clothes. He wonders why Yeager’s clothing would be here…
Sabrina runs into Collinwood looking for Quentin to warn him, but
finds no one there. She picks up the phone and starts to dial, but
Yaeger suddenly bursts through the door and grabs the phone from her
and rips the cord from the wall. She goes into the drawing room. He
follows her and rips the phone from the wall there too and demands to
know what she’s doing here. She lies that she’s looking for Elizabeth
and makes some excuse for wanting to see her. Yaeger asks her if she’s
put the check in a safe place. Reaching into her pocket for it and not
finding it, she lies that it’s in her desk. He tells her he knows she
followed him and saw what he was doing. He tells her she knows too much,
grabs her and strangles her. Elizabeth comes in, sees this and screams…

Yeager drops Sabrina and walks menacingly toward Elizabeth, saying
“You’re next !”. Elizabeth quickly backs back into the foyer, closes
and locks the doors, locking Yaeger in. Julia comes down the stairs
and asks what happened. Elizabeth tells her.
Inside the drawing room, Yaeger figures the police will be coming
soon and decides he must go and become Cyrus again. He takes a chair,
smashes the window and escapes. Hearing this, Elizabeth unlocks the
doors and she and Julia come in. They find Yaeger gone. They also
find both phones ripped from the wall. Julia goes to the old house
to call the police.
At the old house, Julia calls the police. Finding no one at home,
she decides to take advantage of the situation to investigate the
secret room. She opens the bookcase, goes in and finds the coffin
in there. She opens it and finds it empty.
Yaeger returns to the lab and takes the flask of antidote out of
the safe. There is only enough for one more dose. There is a knock at
the upstairs door and a voice calling “Police !”. Yaeger takes the
Cyrus lets the police in. They ask him where Yaeger is, saying he
has committed a murder. Cyrus asks who was murdered. The policeman
tells him it was Sabrina. Cyrus is devastated by the death of his
fiancee, but tells the policeman he doesn’t know where Yaeger is.
Elizabeth tells Barnabas what happened. Barnabas wonders if Yaeger
has anything to do with Maggie’s disappearance, saying he heard in town
that Yaeger had been bothering her.
In her dungeon, Maggie makes her way to a wall and starts to saw
her bonds against a sharp corner.
Cyrus calls Barnabas and tells him that he knows where Maggie is,
in the cellar of the Alton farm. Barnabas asks him how he knows.
Cyrus tells him he can’t tell him that and hangs up. Depressed by the
death of Sabrina, worried that he will spontaneously become Yaeger again
and not be able to come back because he has no more antidote and will
not be able to make any more, and knowing that the police will ask him
how he knew where Maggie was and having no satisfactory explanation,
he takes a gun from a drawer and prepares to commit suicide. But
suddenly, he has the transformation pains again and drops the gun.
Elizabeth tells Julia about Cyrus telling Barnabas where Maggie is.
The wonder how Cyrus knew, and how long he’s known. They wonder what
hold Yaeger has on Cyrus.
In her dungeon, Maggie finally manages to free herself. She goes
out the door, which Yaeger has apparently not bothered to lock since
he thought her safely tied up, but hears someone come in upstairs and
start down the stairs and quickluy rushes back into the cell and hides
in a closet. Barnabas comes downstairs and goes into the dungeon. He
finds that Maggie apparently isn’t in there, but sees her brush and
knows that she was in there. He leaves. Maggie, hearing this, figures
that ‘Yaeger’ will search the rest of the house and, not finding her,
will go search outside. She decides to wait until he has had enough
time to search the house and then escape again.
After what she figures is enough time for Yaeger to search the house,
she comes out of the closet and out of the dungeon, only to find
Yaeger standing on the stairs….

Yaeger, angered by her escape attempt, jumps from the stairs across
the room and grabs her. Suddenly, Barnabas appears on the stairs and
demands that Yaeger release her. Yaeger refuses, warning that he’ll
kill her if he tries anything. Maggie manages to struggle free. Barnabas
chases Yaeger into the dungeon. Yaeger unsheaths the sword in his cane.
Barnabas nonchalantly tells Yaeger that that can’t hurt him. Obviously
finding this ridiculous, Yaeger stabs Barnabas and finds, to his dismay,
that it has no effect on Barnabas whatsoever and shouts, “What kind of
man are you?!”. Barnabas pulls the sword out, throws it to the ground
and attacks Yaeger. After a short struggle in which Barnabas easilyh
overcomes Yaeger, Barnabas grabs him by the throat and strangles in.
Maggie come in to see what happened. They are both shocked to see
Yaeger revert to being Cyrus…
At Collinwood, Julia explains to Carolyn what’s happened and that
Quentin has been contacted and told about it and is returning from
Bangor by chartered plane. Barnabas returns with Maggie and puts her
on the couch, saying she’s in shock. Quentin returns. Seeing Maggie
on the couch, he asks Julia to call Cyrus. Barnabas tells him Cyrus
is unavailable. Quentin tells Julia to call Dr. Ford, then. Barnabas
tells Quentin he has to talk to him privately. They go out into the
foyer. There, with the doors closed, Barnabas tells Quentin that
Yaeger is dead, and that Cyrus is dead too. He tells him that to best
explain, he should accompany him to where it happened.
Julia asks Carolyn where Alexis, who had gone with Quentin to
Bangor, is. Carolyn tells her Quentin had left Alexis there.
Julia telephones Alexis in Bangor and tells her what happened.
She also tells her about finding something that may pertain to
Barnabas takes Quentin to the Alton farm and show him Cyrus’s body
and explains to him what happened. They figure correctly that it must
have had something to do with his experiments…
Julia goes to Angelique’s old room, opens the door and finds that
once again it is in the other parallel time. Inside, she sees Quentin
and the other Julia. The other Julia tells Quentin that Barnabas had
returned but said that Maggie was in danger in the other time and
insisted on going back to help her. Quentin remonstrates her for
letting him go, saying it was too dangerous, that if the people in
the other time knew anything about vampires and suspected him of being
one, he would be in great danger…
Julia goes downstairs and reads a book about vampires. She reads
that a vampire can be destroyed by hammering a wooden stake through
its heart. She hears Barnabas come in and talk to Carolyn in the
foyer. She takes out her compact and uses it to look at them. She
sees only Carolyn, Barnabas casting no reflection…
Later, at sunrise, Barnabas goes back to the old house and goes
into his coffin behind the bookcase.
Julia sneaks into the old house carrying stake and hammer and goes
into the room behind the bookcase. She opens the coffin and finds
Barnabas lying in there. She places the stake over his heart, raises
the hammer and prepares to strike…

Julia comes out of the the secret room. She is quite upset at
having had the unique experience of bashing herself on the head.
There is a knock at the front door and Bruno comes in. He tells her
he’s looking for Willie. Julia tells him Willie is not there. He tells
her there’s something different about her, that her clothes and hair
are different. Julia manages to tell him that that’s just because she’s
dressed up for going into town. He leaves. Julia goes back into the
secret room and examines the other Julia and finds she is dead.
She goes back out of the secret room and finds Willie there holding
a gun on her. He asks her what she’s doing there. Julia tells him she’s
not the Hoffman he knows but he does not believe her. Julia tells him to
look in the secret room. He does and is shocked to find Hoffman lying
in there. He tells Julia that she must be the Dr. Julia Hoffman who
tried to cure Barnabas of vampirism in the other time and asks she
how she got here. Julia replies that she got there the same way
Anglique calls her father, looking for Hoffman. She tells him
Julia had told her she had learned something important about Barnabas.
Bruno goes to Collinwood looking for Quentin. Angelique tells him
that Quentin is not there, that because of all that has just happened,
he’s under a lot of stress. Bruno asks what she means. She tells him
about what happened to Maggie, about Cyrus being responsible.
At the old house, Willie and Julia discuss what to do. Julia wonders
if ‘Alexis’ knows that Barnabas is a vampire too. Willie tells her he
doesn’t think so, that she’s been in Bangor with Quentin. Julia tells
him she can find out by impersonating the other Hoffman. Willie warns
against this, saying it would be too dangerous, but Julia insists on
doing it, saying that the other Julia might have left a note for
Angelique revealing Barnabas’s secret to her.
Bruno breaks into Cyrus’s lab and proceed to rummage through Cyrus’s
things, looking for money.
Julia goes to Angelique’s new room and searches around, looking to
any note the other Julia might have left. Angelique comes in and tells
her she’s glad to finally see her and asks her what she had learned
about Barnabas that is so important. Julia tells her that all she
learned was that Cyrus had called Barnabas and told him about Maggie
being kidnapped by Yeager. Angelique, disappointed, tells her she
thought she had learned his secret. Julia replies that she must have

not know Barnabas’s secret. She adds that Angelique apparently knew
about Cyrus, Yeager and Maggie, that it was apparently part of her
plan. She tells Willie that the best way for her to help Barnabas
is to keep impersonating the other Hoffman. Willie is again
apprehensive about this.
At the lab, Bruno laughs and says, “Did I say there was no money
in here? How wrong I was! This is worth a lot of money!”. He
telephones ‘Alexis’ and asks her, “What if I were to tell you I
knew who killed Angelique?”

Angelique asks him to tell her who, but Bruno tells her he’d prefer
not to tell her over the phone. She tells him to come over to his room.
She asks if he has any proof. He replies that he does. She tells him
to bring it over.
Bruno goes to Collinwood. Maggie opens the door. Bruno comes in and
tells him he heard about what happened to her and offers his
condolences. Quentin walks into the foyer and angrily tells Bruno that
if that’s all he came for, he can leave now that he’s give them. Bruno
replies that he’s been invited by Alexis and goes upstairs. Maggie
and Quentin go into the drawing room. Quentin apoligizes for the way
he acted when she disappeared, explaining that he thought she had left
of her own free will and gone somewhere. She asks him what he was
doing in Bangor with Alexis. He tells her not to be jealous, that she
just wanted to do some shopping there so he gave her a ride.
In Angelique’s new room, ‘Alexis’ asks Bruno who killed Angelique.
He refuses to tell her, saying he’ll tell her and give her the proof
when she’s paid him $5000 for the information. She agrees, but tells
him it’ll take her about 2 hours to get the money. He tells her he’ll
be back and leaves. She goes to her jewelry box and takes out what
appears to be a very expensive necklace.
In the drawing room, Maggie tells Quentin that maybe it was Cyrus
who was responsible for all the strange things that have happened at
Collinwood. Quentin finds this dubious and says there’s no proof of
this. Maggie tells him that there’s one way to know for sure, that
if strange things stop happening at Collinwood, then that’ll prove
that Cyrus was responsible. Angelique, who on her way downstairs has
stopped in the foyer and eavsdropped on their conversation, thinks to
herself, “No, Maggie. They won’t stop. And how surprised your husband
will be when he finds out who’s responsible…”
Angelique returns to Collinwood and goes up to her room. She finds
Bruno already there waiting for her. She gives him the money and
asks him who murdered Angelique. He hands her a manila envelope and
tells her to read if for herself. She opens the envelope and takes out
Cyrus’s journal. She is shocked to read Cyrus’s account of how it was
Quentin, in a jealous rage because because of what came out during the
seance, killed Angelique by sticking a hatpin into her brain and how
Cyrus had covered this up when he signed the death certifacte. Bruno
‘explains to Alexis’ that it was the relationship between him and
Angelique that made Quentin jealous. Angelique vows vengeance on
Angelique goes downstairs and runs into Quentin into the foyer and
stares at him strangely. Quentin asks her what’s wrong. She tells him
“Oh nothing. My mind was just elsewhere..”. Maggie comes out of the
drawing room and goes upstairs, telling Quentin that she’s going to
get some rest.
Angelique goes upstairs with some tea and gives it to Maggie, saying
she’s been through quite an ordeal and she hopes she recovers from it
quickly. As she puts the tea service on Maggie’s dresser, she steals
a pendant lying there.
Angelique goes back into the drawing room, sits by the fire and
casts a spell causing Maggie to do as she orders. She causes Maggie
to go into her, Angelique’s room and steals a necklace (not the one
seen earlier) and take it back top her own room. Angelique mutters to
herself, “Now you’ll perform your first act of witchcraft, Maggie.”.
Quentin comes into the drawing room. Angelique remarks to him that
Maggie seemed quite jealous that he went with her to Bangor. Suddenly,
she grabs her throat and complains that she can’t breath and exclaims,
“She’s doing it to me, the witch !!!”.
Quentin rushes upstairs to their room and finds Maggie in there
with ‘Alexis’s’ necklace in her hands, twisting it. He exclaims,
“You said Cyrus was behind everything, but YOU’RE the witch!”

Maggie is alone in her room, Quentin having stormed out of
Collinwood in anger. Angelique comes in and asks her what’s the
matter, then ‘notices’ Maggie holding her necklace and asks her
what she’s doing with it. Maggie explains that she had gone to
her room and taken it, but doesn’t know why she did it, that it’s
like something forced her to do it. She remarks that she had thought
that Cyrus had been behind everything, but that he couldn’t be
because he’s now dead. Angelique suggests that Barnabas is strange
and mysterious and perhaps he’s responsible.
Julia is in the secret room behind the bookcase, waiting. Barnabas
awakens, sees Julia and comes out of his coffin. Thinking it’s the
evil Hoffman, he says, “So you’ve finally found me” and advances to
kill her, but Julia tells him who she is and what happened. She shows
him the hammer and stake and, gesturing toward the stake, says, “She
was holding this over your heart and was about to…” Barnabas asks,
“You did this for me?” Julia replies, “Yes”. Barnabas, looking very
touched, tells Julia he’s very grateful. She tells him she’s continuing
to impersonate the evil Hoffman in order to help him and find out what
Angelique is doing. He tells her that that’s too dangerous and tells
her to stop, but Julia insists on continuing.
Julia goes to Collinwood and finds Angelique dealing some Tarot
cards. Angelique tells Julia she’s found out who murdered her –
Quentin. She tells her she’ll avenge herself. Suddenly, she starts
to feel faint and collapses. Very weak, she tells Julia to go do what
is necessary, that she knows what to do. Julia looks puzzled, and
Angelique adds, “What’s the matter Julia? I’ve told you about this
before. My father’s responsible. Go to my father. “. Julia goes
out into the foyer and wonders what to do, not even knowing who
Angelique’s father is. She finally thinks of looking in the phone
At Stokes’s house, Timothy Stokes gives the body an injection.
There’s a knock at the door. He goes and answers it. It is Julia.
He tells her he’s been expecting her. He tells her it wasn’t his
fault this time. Seeing that she doesn’t understand what he’s talking
about, he asks, “Didn’t Angelique tell you about the body?”. Julia
lies that she did, but was very vague about it. Stokes explains to
her about the body and tells her that the body has proven stronger
than he expected, that it’s trying to get its lifeforce back and
that that’s what caused Angelique to weaken and faint. He adds that
he’s just given the body an injection to keep it in trance. Julia
asks, “And if the body is destroyed?”. Stokes answers that Angelique
too will die if that happens, but that there’s no danger of that
happening because the body’s in good care here. Stokes complains
to Julia about Angelique not wanting him at Collinwood in spite of
all he has done for her.
Maggie tells Barnabas what happened, saying maybe she is the
witch and just doesn’t know it. Barnabas tells her that can’t be
Julia returns to Collinwood and tells Angelique what her father
told her and suggests to her that she be a little nicer to him in
view of his power over her. She suggests that she have him over tonight
since Quentin’s gone anyway. Angelique agrees, saying maybe she can
convince him to do more to keep the body from trying to get its
lifeforce back. Angelique calls her father.
Julia goes to the old house and tells Barnabas about the body, that
destroying it will destroy Angelique. Barnabas is stunned that she has
such a simple weakness. Julia tells him that Stokes will be at
Collinwood at 8:00 tonight and that they will be able to get at the
body then, that they can destroy it, destroy Angelique and, all
danger to Maggie gone, go back to their own time. Barnabas picks
up a knife from the desk and announces, “Tonight, this will end
the reign of terror at Collinwood!”
Stokes arrives at Collinwood and Angelique entertains him with
a pitcher of martinis. She tells him she has some important things
planned and cannot afford to have any more fainting spells and begs
him to find a way to stop them.
Barnabas and Julia go into Stoke’s house, Julia using a key she
tells Barnabas she got from Angelique’s desk. Julia tells Barnabas
that this is only the first step, that they’ll have to do something
about Stokes afterward to prevent him from finding another body and
doing the same thing again. Barnabas raises a knife and prepares
to destroy the body…

Julia pulls the sheet off the body for Barnabas to destroy. He
suddenly stops and tells her he can’t do it. She asks him why.
He tells her the body is too beautiful. Julia is flabbergasted and
tells him that that’s not a good reason and that he must destroy it
for the good of everyone, but he still refuses to do it, saying
there’s so much ugliness in the world that he can’t bear to destroy
beauty when he finds it. He tells Julia they must try to find an
alternate way to deal with Angelique. He reminds Julia that Stokes
had told her that the body had been battling with Angelique for the
lifeforce and suggests that they help it and try to revive it, thereby
Roger goes into the drawing room and finds Angelique and Stokes
in there. Stokes notices that Roger is acting somewhat oddly and
asks him what’s wrong. Roger tells him that he’s just discovered that
Cyrus had made him the executor of his estate, that he’s surprised
because he would have thought that Cyrus would have made Quentin the
executor. Stokes remarks that maybe Cyrus did this because he, Roger,
is in more of a need for the executor’s percentage than Quentin is.
Roger, insulted, tells Stokes that he doesn’t need the money either
and storms out of the room. Stokes remarks to Angelique that Roger
and Elizabeth live in a dream world. Angelique tells him that they’ll
soon find their dream world turning into a nightmare. Stokes asks her
what she’s going to do. Angelique replies that she’s not going to do
anything. Stokes remarks, “So you’re going to get someone else to do
Julia finishes examining the body and tells Barnabas that there
isn’t anything she can do. Barnabas, still entranced by the body’s
beauty, takes one of its hands and holds it. Suddenly, he tells
Julia that the fingers of the hand have moved. Barnabas squeezes the
hand and the eyes of the body open…
At Collinwood, Angelique starts to get weak. Stokes, realizing that
something is happening to the body, rushes out.
Barnabas and Julia continue to try to revive the body, but are
unable to get any further as it just lies there, eyes open. Suddenly
they hear someone come in through the front door and realize that
something must have happened to Angelique and that it must be Stokes
returning to see what’s happened to the body. They desperately try
to think of what to do. Julia tells Barnabas to disappear. Barnabas
replies that he can’t just leave her there, but Julia replies that
she has a plan. Barnabas vanishes to thin air just as Stokes enters
the room. Stokes sees Julia and demands to know what she’s doing there.
Julia points at the body and says, “Loo ! The eyes are open “. Stokes
looks and thanks her for telling him but then says, “But you still
haven’t told my why you’re here”. Julia lies that she came because
she had a premonition that Angelique was in trouble.
Stokes phones Angelique and tells Angelique he’s taken care of
everything and that everything’s all right now. Maggie comes into the
room and tells Angelique she’s going to wait here for Quentin to
return. Roger comes in and gets into an argument with Maggie about
Quentin. Angelique leaves.
Angelique goes to Bruno’s cottage. Bruno asks Angelique if she’s
gone to the police with the diary yet. She tells him that she hasn’t,
that there isn’t enought evidence, just the word of a dead man. Bruno
gets angry about this. Angelique tells him that he looks bored and
suggests he go to Collinwood and talk to Maggie, that she’s lonely and
ready for another man.
Bruno goes to Collinwood where he finds Maggie alone in the drawing
room. After some drinks and some conversation, he tries to seduce and
kiss her, but she rebukes him. Unknown to both of them, Roger is
outside in the foyer eavesdropping on them. Hearing someone at the
door, Maggie runs to it and opens it, expecting Quentin, but finds
Bruno returns to the cottage, stung by Maggie’s rejection. He tells
‘Alexis’ he’s going to call the police about Quentin’s murdering

keep him away from the phone, but he pushes her to the ground and picks
up the phone and proceeds to call the police. Behind his back,

Bruno calls the police and tells him he wants to talk to them
about a murder.
Quentin returns to Collinwood and runs into Roger in the foyer.
Roger tells him about Bruno trying to seduce Maggie and being rebuked
An Inspector Hamilton arrives at the cottage and asks Bruno what
he wants to talk to him about. Bruno tells him he wants to talk to
him about Angelique’s murder. Hamilton tells him that Angelique had
died of a stroke. Bruno hands him the photostat (an old-fashioned one
with white letters on a black background).
Maggie and Quentin talk in the drawing room. Quentin wants to
talk about Bruno’s attempt to seduce her, but Maggie wants to talk
about his thinking she’s been practicing witchcraft. They are
interrupted by the arrival of Inspector Hamilton. He tells Quentin
he wants to talk to him about the death of his first wife. He shows
him the photostat and asks him if he recognizes the handwriting.
Quentin replies that he does, that it’s Cyrus Longworth’s. Hamilton
gives it to Quentin and asks him to read it. Quentin does. Maggie
asks him what it says. Quentin replies that it says Angelique was
murdered. Roger comes into the room and exclaims, “Murdered?!”.
Angelique comes in too. Maggie asks who the paper says murdered her.
Quentin calmly replies, “Me.”. Inspector Hamilton tells Quentin he
has a few questions to asks him. Maggie suggests that he say nothing
until he get his lawyer Chris to come here, but Quentin replies that
he doens’t need to because he’s innocent and has nothing to hide.
The inspector tells Angelique to stay too because he has a few
questions to ask her, too. He tells her he knows she has the original
of the diary and asks her where she got it from and why she didn’t
go to the police with it. She replies that she didn’t go to the police
with it because she didn’t believe what it said was true and that she
paid $5000 to Bruno for it to keep him from using it against Quentin.
The inspector tells Roger he’d like to question him since he was at
the seance. While the inspector talks to Roger in the drawing room,
Angelique and Quentin talk outside in the foyer with the doors closed.
Quentin gets angry and tells Angelique he’s sick and tired of Bruno
and is going to the cottage to take care of him. Angelique smiles
and goes upstairs.
Having finished talking to Roger, Inspector Hamilton opens to foyer
doors and is surprised to see that Quentin is not there. Maggie
goes upstairs to see if he’s there. Roger suggests that maybe he
went to Bruno’s cottage. Hamilton remarks that he’ll go there and see
since he wants to asks Bruno a few more questions too anyway.
At the cottage, Quentin and Bruno get into an argument and Quentin
grabs Bruno by the throat and starts to strangle him but then lets go,
saying he’s not worth the trouble. Bruno starts to breath normally,
but then suddenly grabs his throat again and gasps for air, unable to
In her room at Collinwood, Angelique is smiling broadly and
strangling a doll with a scarf…
Quentin just watches Bruno, smiling bemusedly. Bruno falls to

Quentin standing over Bruno’s body and says “For your sake, I hope he’s
alive, Mr. Collins…”

Inspector Hamilton examines Bruno and finds him dead. He asks
Quentin what happened. Quentin tells him that Bruno just started
choking by himself all of a sudden. The inspector tells Quentin
that he finds that strange and that he’s under arrest for suspicion
Angelique goes to Maggie’s room and puts the doll and scarf in
a dresser drawer.
The Inspector takes Quentin back to Collinwood. Maggie is told
that Quentin is under arrest for murder. Angelique, in the foyer,
hears this and comes in and pretends to be shocked. Quentin asks to
be allowed to go to his room to pack some things. The Inspector says
he’ll allow him to do this, as long as he lets him accompahy him.
Quentin and the Inspector go to Quentin and Maggie’s room. While
taking some things out of a dresser drawer, Quentin sees the doll and
the scarf, but does not tell the inspector. The inspector, seeing
a funny expression on Quentin’s face, asks what’s wrong. Quentin
replies that nothing is, then mutters to himself, “You’d never believe
me if I told you”.
As the Inspector takes Quentin away, Quentin and Maggie say goodbye
to each other in the foyer. Quentin is strangely cold to her…
When Quentin gets to the jail, he finds Barnabas there waiting for
him. Quentin asks Barnabas what he’s doing there. Barnabas replies
that Maggie called him and told him what happened. Quentin tells
Barnabas about finding the doll in the dresser. Barnabas tries to
convince Quentin that Maggie couldn’t be responsible, that someone
must be trying to frame her. The Inspector comes in and tells them
that the coroner has just finished the autopsy on Bruno and that he
should have the results in an hour.
When Barnabas returns to Collinwood and tells Julia about the doll,
Julia reprimands him for not having destroyed the body, thereby
allowing this to happen. Barnabas agrees. But they also agree that
they cannot destroy it now because they need Angelique alive so they
can prove her and not Quentin guilty of Bruno’s murder…
The Inspector tells Quentin that the autopsy showed that Bruno
died of strangulation and that there where finger marks on his neck
and that he is now charged with first degree murder, and that the
judge has denied bail. He adds that in view of this murder and
Cyrus’s journal, he’s also going to investigate the possibility that
Angelique was murdered and is going to start by exhuming her body.
Barnabas goes to Collinwood and finds Maggie in the foyer just
finishing a phone call. He asks her if she’s heard any news about
Quentin. She tells him she’s just had a call from his lawyer and
he’s being held for first degree murder without bail.
‘Alexis’ goes and visits Quentin. He tells her about being held
without bail, but tells her he’s more worried about something else:
that Inspector Hamilton is going to exhume the body of Angelique
(which, of course, he had burned..) and that there’s going to be
a lot of questions when he finds there is no body. He also tells her
of finding the doll in the dresser drawer. Angelique tells Quentin
that Maggie can’t be responsible, that someone else must be trying
to frame both of them and convinces him that he must escape and
find the culprit and prove his innocence.
In his office next to the room where Quentin and Angelique are,
the Inspector is making a phone call arranging to have Angelique
exhumed. Suddenly he hears Angelique scream. He rushes into the
other room where Quentin, who had stationed himself right next to
the door, knocks him out and escapes…

Angelique returns to Collinwood and lies to Maggie about Quentin’s
escape, telling her he was like a madman and forced her to scream and
get the Inspector into the room and knocked him out. Maggie starts
to doubt Quentin’s innocence in Bruno’s death. She also thinks that
if he’s capable of murdering Bruno, he could have killed Angelique
Julia goes to the old house. Carolyn returns. Julia asks her where
she’s been. Carolyn replies that she’s been taking a walk to try to
calm down because of all that has happened. Julia tells her about
Quentin’s escape and that the police have been here searching for
him, and that they almost discovered the secret room. (This indicates
that Carolyn knows that this is another Julia, not the evil one).
They decide that they must find Quentin because if Angelique helped
him escape, then she must have some plan against him and that he
would be much safer in jail. They also decide to try to find out
who killed Angelique and clear Quentin of that murder too.
Maggie finds the doll and scarf in her room. Carolyn comes in.
Maggie shows her the doll and asks her what it is. Carolyn looks at
it and notices that the ascot belongs to Bruno and tells Maggie that
it’s something used in witchcraft to harm or kill someone and asks
her where it came from. Maggie tells her she found it in a drawer
and swears she doesn’t know where it came from. Carolyn tells her
she believes her, that someone must have planted it there. She
tells her to watch out for Alexis. Maggie tells her she doesn’t
believe her, that Alexis has been so nice to her..
Carolyn returns to the old house and talks to Julia. Carolyn
asks Julia if she’s learned anything from Angelique about where
Quentin is. Julia replies that this time, Angelique has not confided
in her. Carolyn tells Julia about Maggie and the doll, and about
warning Maggie to watch out for Alexis. Julia tells her she shouldn’t
have done this, that the less Maggie knows, the safer she’d be. They
discuss finding Angelique’s murderer again and Julia asks who was at
the seance. Carolyn replies, “Me, Angelique, Mother, Roger, Quentin,
Cyrus, Bruno, and Buffie Harrington, who was working for us at the
time”. Julia asks who first went to Angelique when the lights went on
and she was found to be on the floor. Carolyn answers, “Mother, then
Maggie goes to her room and finds the door open and remarks,
“I’m sure I shut this…”. She goes in and finds the doll gone.
Angelique comes in and tells her she’s going for a walk and asks
if she’d like to come along. Maggie remarks that something is missing
from the room and asks Angelique if she’s been in the room. Angelique
acts insulted and says no. Then Maggie notices that some of Quentin’s
things are missing too and begins to think that maybe it was Quentin
who came here and stole the things.
Later, Maggie goes downstairs and hears a sound in the drawing
room. She goes in and finds that it’s just an open window being
blown by the wind. She closes it. She goes out into the foyer and the
front doors blow open. She closes them. She then hears someone playing
Angelique’s music. She follows the sound to Angelique’s old room and
finds that it’s coming from there. She tries to open the doors but
finds that they are locked. The music suddenly stops and Julia
appears behind her and asks her what’s wrong. She tells Julia that
someone is locked in the room and was playing the piano, but when
she turns, she finds that the doors have opened by themselves and
that no one is in the room. Maggie becomes quite distraught.
At the old house, Carolyn thinks about how important Julia thinks
it is that they find Angelique’s murderer. She thinks back to the
seance and remembers Angelique’s body lying on the floor and recalls
some piece of jewelry beside it. A look of shock crosses her face.
Julia returns and asks her what’s the matter. Carolyn exclaims,
“I remember now! I know who killed Angelique!!!”.

Julia asks her who, but is surprised to find that Carolyn refuses
to tell her. When asked why, Carolyn gets upset, tells her it was only
a dream that really didn’t mean anything and runs upstairs. Barnabas
returns. Julia tells him about what happened with Carolyn and suggests
that Willie killed Angelique and she is trying to hide the fact that
she now knows. Barnabas tells Julia he’ll ask Willie if he did it.
Julia, shocked, says,”You mean you’re just going to come out and ask
him?”. Barnabas reminds her, “I have certain powers over him…”.
Barnabas calls Willie and he comes. He asks him if he killed
Angelique, saying that he had reason to, that Angelique flirted with
him and led him on, then returned to Quentin. Willie swears that
he didn’t. Carolyn comes down the stairs and Barnabas tells Willie to
go away. He does. Barnabas tells Carolyn what Julia told her, and
demands to know who she thinks killed Angelique. Carolyn refuses to
tell him. He hypnotizes her to force her to tell him. She blurts
out, “Elizabeth! My mother !”. Barnabas asks her why she thinks so.
Carolyn replies that when she got to the body after the seance, she
found a piece of jade next to the body, but thought nothing of it,
thinking it was from Angelique’s necklace or something, but now
remembers it clearly and recognizes it as being from one of her
mother’s hat pins, and Cyrus’ journal had claimed that Angelique had
died from having a hatpin shoved into her brain. Barnabas asks what
motive Elizabeth would have to kill Angelique. Carolyn repliles that
Elizabeth hated Angelique for treating her like a poor relation and
making sure that anything she wanted to get done at the house not get
done. Barnabas remarks,”Surely she must have had more motive than that
for you to think she would commit murder.”. Pressed, Carolyn admits
that there is a further motive, that Angelique had flirted with Willie
and that, infatuated, Willie had stopped writing and that she had
wanted to leave him, and Elizabeth didn’t like Angelique causing this.
At Collinwood, Willie is in the drawing room with Elizabeth.
Elizabeth swears she heard a strange sound, but Willie tells her he
didn’t hear anything. She tells him that she’s beginning to think
that Maggie may be right, that Quentin might have snuck back into
Collinwood and may be totally crazy and tells him she’s thinking of
coming to stay with him and Carolyn at the old house.
At the old house, Barnabas notes to Julia that three of the people
who had been at the seance, Cyrus, Bruno and Sabrina have died. Julia
tells Barnabas about the doll found in Maggie’s room that had been used
to kill Bruno. Barnabas remarks that Angelique must have planted it
there and that something must be done about it. He suggests stealing
Roxanne’s body and bringing it to semi-conciousness to weaken
Angelique, that she can do it owing to her experience with Adam and
Eve. Julia warns him against doing this, saying that he’s the first
person Angelique would suspect if the body was stolen, and that the
old house would be the first place she would search. Barnabas replies
that he doesn’t care if Angelique suspects him, and if the old house
is the first place she’d search, he’ll just have to hide Roxanne some-
where else. Julia still refuses to help, saying it’s too dangerous.
Barnabas tells her he’ll just have to do it himself, then.
Barnabas takes Willie to the cementary to see the secret room in
the Collin’s mausoleum, planning to use it as a hiding place for
Roxanne. On the way, Willie asks him how he knows there’s a secret
room there. Barnabas replies that it exists in his own time, that
is was built as a hiding place during the Revolutionary war. The
get to the mausoleum and Barnabas pulls on the ring in the lion’s
mouth and the panel opens, showing that there is indeed a secret room
in this time too. They go in. Barnabas is shocked to see that someone
has been using it. In the room is a round table with several chairs
around it and a candlabrum on it. Also on it is a half drunken glass
of milk. Willie sniffs it and finds that it is still relatively
fresh, indicating that someone has been here recently. Barnabas is
even more shocked to find a sketch of Roxanne . It is signed “Claude

with a box of hatpins. She tells Carolyn she is tired of them and

you sure he’s not going to be home tonight?”. Willie replies that
he’s sure, that this is the night of the week Stokes always goes and
spends the night at the Eagle. Willie tells Barnabas he feels
as if they aren’t in the room alone, that he feels another presence in
the room. Suddenly, a voice warns them, “No! You will not enter! I will
not let you!”. Willie gasps, “That’s Hoffman’s voice! It’s her

Barnabas convinces the spirit of Hoffman to leave and let them
enter by telling it that it that Angelique should be dead, and that
it would give her peace if they made sure that that is the case.
At Collinwood, Nora comes down to the drawing room and finds
Angelique there. She tells her that she saw someone outside that
looked like Quentin from her window, that she saw him come across the
lawn and come in through a window. Angelique tells her she must have
been imagining things.
At Stokes’ house, Willie and Barnabas go into the room behind the
curtains and proceed to steal the body.
At Collinwood, as Willie and Barnabas steal Roxanne, Angelique
suddenly starts to feel weak. She tells Nora she has something to do
and leaves. Irked that Angelique didn’t believe her, she starts to
search the house for Quentin.
Angelique goes to her father’s house and finds the body gone.
Willie, Barnabas and Julia are in the room behind the bookcase
at the old house with the body of Roxanne. There’s a knock at the
front door. Willie quickly exits the secret room to see who it is.
It is Angelique. She tells Willie she wants to see Barnabas. Willie
replies that Barnabas isn’t home. She sits down and tells him she’ll
wait. He tells her he won’t be home tonight. She replies, “Willie. !
If I didn’t know better, I’d think you were trying to get rid of me.”
She then notes that he seems very nervous and then asks him what
he’s doing home, remarking, “Isn’t this the night you usually spend
drinking with my father at the Eagle.”. Willie thinks of another
lie and tells her he’s just started on a new book, that that’s why
Carolyn and Barnabas are gone, that they know how difficult it is
for him to start a new work and wanted to leave him in peace and
quiet. Confronted with this, Angelique leaves, saying she wouldn’t
think of staying and bothering him. Willie goes to the bookcase
and tells Barnabas and Julia through the bookcase without opening it
that Angelique has left, but tells them to stay in there for awhile
in case it’s a trick and she comes back. Inside, Julia tells Barnabas
they’d better start. Barnabas, surprised, says, “I thought you said
you wouldn’t help me.”. Julia tells him she’s changed her mind.
Nora continues to search through unused parts of the house. She
hears footsteps and a door closing.
Julia returns to Collinwood. Angelique angrily asks what she’s
been doing. Julia tells her she has other duties to do as well.
Angelique tells her she should have been following Barnabas tonight.
She tells her to go talk to her father, that maybe he knows what
happened. Julia asks her what she’ll be doing in the meantime.
Angelique replies,”Thinking. Thinking about how Barnabas found out
about the body…”
In the tower room, Nora finds a doll with a scarf tied around its
neck, the doll that was used to kill Bruno.
At the old house, Barnabas instructs Willie to look for Quentin,
saying he suspects he’s on the estate somewhere, explaining that
when they show him Roxanne, maybe they’ll be able to convince him
that Alexis is Angelique.
Julia returns and tells Angelique her father said he didn’t
know anything about the body, but he wasn’t very coherent. Angelique
snarls, “You mean he was drunk…”
Nora shows Willie the doll. He asks where she found it. She replies
“The tower room.”.
Julia warns Barnabas that Angelique is certain he stole the body
and will stop at nothing to destroy him.
Willie goes to the tower room to investigate. Suddenly, the
doorknob starts to turn….

The door opens, and Angelique comes in. Wilie says, “Alexis..”,
but Angelique tells him she knows he knows she’s Angelique. He
feigns ignorance, saying, “Angelique is dead “. She tries to seduce
At the old house, Barnabas and Julia emerge from the secret room
behind the bookcase. They discuss their plan for the body. Barnabas
asks Julia when she’ll be ready. Julia replies that she’ll have all
the equipment tonight. Suddenly, Barnabas tells Julia that he senses
that Willie is in trouble and says he must go help him. Julia points
out that it’s almost dawn tells him she’ll go and help Willie.
Angelique asks Willie what Barnabas’s secret is. WIllie lies that
he doens’t know what she’s talking about, that Barnabas has no secret.
She tells him she knows Barnabas under some kind of curse, and remarks
that he obviously has some sort of power over him, Willie. She
continues to try to pressure him into telling her Barnabas’s secret.
Willie climbs onto the window sill and threatens to jump rather than
reveal Barnabas’ secret. Julia comes into the room. Just as she does,
Willie jumps. Angelique demands to know what Julia is doing here.
Julia answers that she had a feeling she was in danger. Angelique
replies that she wasn’t, and asks how she knew she was in here. Julia
replies that she was looking for her and heard her voice in here.
Angelique tells Julia she almost learned Barnabas’s secret, and that
Willie might still be alive and she may still be able to learn it.
Julia and Angelique go outside to Willie’s body. Julia looks at the
body and says, “He’s dead. His spine snapped when he hit the ground.
He died instantly.”. Angelique asks, “I’m intrigued by your diagnosis!
Do you have a medical degree? How do you know?”. Julia replies, “When
I was a little girl, I saw a man who had fallen and had his neck bent
in the same way. I remember what the doctor said.”.
Barnabas awakens and goes upstairs. He is about to go and check
on the body when he realizes Angelique is in the room. He demands to
know what she’s doing in there. She tells him she’s looking for
Carolyn, to tell her she’s a widow. She tells Barnabas that she had
almost gotten Willie to tell him his secret, but that he jumped to his
death rather than reveal it, and that that makes her all the more
determined to learn it.
Barnabas and Julia are in a downstairs lab in the Old house.
The body has been moved there and is now attached to electrodes from
an electrical apparatus much like the one used to give life to Adam.
Julia gives the body an injection. Barnabas asks how long she can
be away. Julia replies that she can only be away for about an hour
because Angelique is starting to wonder why she’s been gone so much
recently. Julia turns the equipment on. After awhile, she turns
them off, saying she’s got to go back to Collinwood. She leaves,
telling Barnabas to watch the body for awhile, that the treatment
might have had some effect. Barnabas looks at the body for awhile
and caresses it’s face. The body opens its eyes. At Collinwood,
Angelique, coming down the stairs, starts to weaken and feel faint.
Barnabas helps the woman up and off the gurney. Angelique, at the
foot of the stairs, screams and falls to the ground.

Angelique mutters, “Father, help me!..” and struggles towards the
phone, but loses conciousness about halfway there.
Barnabas talks to the woman, but finds that she cannot speak. He
shows her the sketch of herself to try to get a reaction from her.
She touches the name Claude North.
Angelique regains conciousness and struggles to the table. Maggie
comes down the stairs and sees her and asks what’s the matter.
Angelique gasps, “Heart…”. Maggie takes the phone. Angelique asks
who she’s calling. Maggie replies, “Dr. Forbes”. Angelique tells
her to call her father instead. Puzzled, Maggie asks why. Angelique
replies that he has medicine for her.
Barnabas takes the woman to the tomb and takes her into the secret
room. He finds a knife on a chair and exclaims, “Someone else has
been in here…”. He notices that the woman seems to recognize it.
Stokes is in Angelique’s room. She is in bed. He tells her that
the injection he gave her will help her, but “the moment Roxanne speaks
could mean the end of you”. He tells her he’ll prevent that and
starts to cast a spell…
At the tomb, Roxanne weakens and Barnabas takes her away.
Angelique gets out of bed, much recovered. She tells her father
that they must prevent this from happening again. He replies, “The
only way to do that is to find the body and hide it where no one would
ever find it”. Angelique demands, “Do it!” Stokes replies, “One
way to do it would be to contact Claude North”. Angelique asks, “Who’s
he?” Stokes refuses to tell her, saying, “I’d promised never to have
anything to do with him again”. Angelique replies, “Well, you’re
going to break that promise! Go and call Claude North tonight!”
Barnabas takes Roxanne back to the old house and puts her back on
the gurney in the secret room. He hears a car and into the living
room and closes the bookcase. Carolyn returns, laden with packages.
She tells him she’s just gotten back from shopping with some friends
in Portland. Barnabas tells her the sad news about Willie. Blaming
him for it, she rushes out of the old house.
Stokes refuses to contact Claude North, saying, “I’ll try to find
Roxanne on my own. If I fail, I’ll contact Claude North”. Angelique
angrily asks Stokes why he won’t contact Claude North, saying, “I’ve
come so far I won’t be stopped by your fear of an ordinary man!”
Stokes replies, “Claude North is no ordinary man. You’d know that
as soon as you met him”.
Carolyn goes to Collinwood and talks to Maggie in the drawing
room. They talk about Willie. Angry and distraught, Carolyn starts
to talk about how strange things are at Collinwood, how some people
here aren’t what they seem to be and starts to talk about Barnabas.
She appears to be about to tell his secret, but stops when Barnabas
comes into the room and says, “Did I hear someone mention my name?”.
Stokes comes down the stairs from Angelique’s room and sees
both Barnabas and Carolyn in the drawing room. They don’t see him.
Realizing his opportunity with both of the out of the old house, he
Barnabas asks to speak to Carolyn privately. Maggie leaves.
Barnabas manages to calm Carolyn down and convince her that the best
thing to do is to avenge Willie’s death by taking care of Angelique.
She tells him she’d like to see Willie’s body before going back to the
old house. They go upstairs to view it.
Barnabas and Carolyn return to the old house. Barnabas assures Carolyn
that he’s found a way to destroy Angelique. Carolyn goes upstairs.
Barnabas goes into the secret room to check on the body. It is gone….

Julia comes and tells Barnabas that something’s just happened to
Angelique, that she got so weak she could hardly stand. Barnabas
tells her about the body being gone. He tells her to find out if
Stokes has it while he goes to the tomb to see if maybe she went
Stokes telephones Claude North and tells him Roxanne is missing
and asks if she’s with him. North replies that she isn’t. Stokes
asks North to use his ‘special psychic bond with her’ to find her and
asks him to meet him at ‘the usual place’ in half an hour.
Stokes exits Collinwood and runs into Julia right outside the door.
Julia asks Stokes if he’s had any luck in finding the body. He replies
that he hasn’t, but that he’s working on it.
Roxanne is wandering in the woods. She hears the sound of footsteps
approaching and hides behind a tree. Barnabas walks right past her.
Barnabas goes to the tomb. Stokes, whom Barnabas does not see,
sees him go in and wonders what he’s doing here. He sees Barnabas
open the secret door and go into the secret room, wonders how
he knows about that and thinks to himself, “Barnabas knows too
much..”. Inside the secret room, Barnabas notices that the room
has been cleaned up and realizes that someone must have been there.
He notices that the dagger, “the only thing in the room she wasn’t
frightened of”, is gone. He then finds a cufflink on the floor.
The cufflink has the monogram C.N. Barnabas exclaims, “Of course !
Carolyn is at the old house. Despondent over Willie’s death, she
is getting drunk. Stokes comes. He pretends to have come to give his
condolences, calling Willie a great talent who was never adequately
appreciated. He then starts to question her about Barnabas. Just as
she is about to say something, Barnabas comes walking through the door
and she stops. After telling him that he came to offer his condolences,
Stokes remarks to Barnabas that they both seem to share some interesting
habits, that they both seem to be night-owls, and that they both seem
to enjoy long walks through unusual places. He tells Barnabas that
he’s just been walking through the cemetary and saw him there. He
also tells Barnabas that he heard rumors that maybe he “has a girl
somewhere”. Barnabas pointedly says “Goodnight..” and Stokes leaves.
Carolyn tells Barnabas about all the nice things Stokes had said about
Willie. Barnabas tells her he just said those things to get her to
talk and tells her to go upstairs and get some rest. Carolyn tells
him she doesn’t need any rest and angrily runs out of the old house.
Julia returns and tells Barnabas that she’s lied to Stokes, that
she’s searched the locked basement for the girl and found nothing.
Barnabas tells her he’s going to the tomb again to see if she’s
shown up there. He tells her to go look for Carolyn, that she rushed
out of the old house in a worrisome mood.
Carolyn is in the tower room, staring out the window where Willie
jumped to his death. Quentin comes into the room and tells her she
shouldn’t be here. Carolyn drunkenly tells him, “She’ll win. Barnabas
is strong, but she is stronger.”. Quentin asks her who she means.
She replies, “Angelique”. Quentins responds, “That impossible. I
destroyed her.”. Carolyn mutters, “You? But my mother..”. Quentin,
not hearing what she’s muttering, says, “What?”. Carolyn just replies,
“Oh, nothing” and leaves.
Barnabas goes into the secret room in the tomb again and finds it
empty. He hears a sound outside. He exits the secret room and finds
Roxanne standing in the tomb. Seeing him, she flees. He follows her.
He finally catches up with her and finds her kneeling in front of
a headstone. The inscription on the headstone reads, “Claude North,
1814 – 1866″.
