            Angelique shouts, "I did not summon you! Who has brought you
         here? Who has the power to make you appear?" The ghost continues 
         to approach menacingly.  Angelique, terrified, screams, "Why don't 
         you answer me? Leave me alone! Leave me alone!" and grabs a 
         pillar. When she looks up again, the ghost is gone. She looks 
         around and asks, "Are you still in this room? Can you hear me, 
         Jeremiah Collins?  You are never to appear in this house again 
         unless I summon you! Can you hear me?" Barnabas returns. Noticing 
         that Angelique looks shaken, he asks her, "Has something happened,
         Angelique? You look so pale".  Angelique replies, "No, I'm just
         acting like a fool.  Did you get the minister?"  Barnabas replies,
         "He's coming. Are you sure you're all right?"  Angelique replies,
         "Yes. Must we live here after the marriage?"  Barnabas asks, "Why
         do you ask?"  Angelique replies, "There's been so much tragedy
         here, maybe it would be better to start our marriage somewhere
         else."  Barnabas tells her, "That would make us look ungrateful
         to my mother". Angelique goes upstairs.  Ben comes in and starts
         to say to Barnabas, "I need to talk to you...", but Barnabas
         interrupts and tells him about the wedding.  Ben congratulates him.
         Barnabas asks, "What did you want?"  Ben tells him, "Trask has been
         snooping around the stables. He's gone now, but I have a feeling
         he's going to be back. The stables won't be safe for Miss Winters".
         Barnabas tells Ben, "Bring her here.  This is my house now. If Trask
         comes here, I won't let him in."  Ben points out, "But Angelique
         will be living here. She'll know about her too".  Barnabas assures
         Ben, "She will be as protective of her as I am. After you bring Miss
         Winters here, you will be staying here for the wedding ceremony".
         Ben, surprised, asks, "Me?"  Barnabas explains, "I need a witness".
         Ben says, "I'm very honored. I hope your marriage will bring an end
         to all this tragedy".  Barnabas asks,  "What is that supposed to
         mean?"  Ben replies, "It's just my way of saying I hope you and
         Miss Angelique will be very, very happy".
            Angelique is in a room upstairs (not the servant's room
         she used to live in, but a much larger, fancier room). She
         has put on a white dress that looks something like a wedding
         dress.  She looks in the mirror to see how it looks and is
         shocked to see in the reflection that the dress is covered with
         splotches of blood.  She looks down on the dress and is
         surprised to see that there is no blood on the dress, that
         it exists only in the reflection.
            Ben returns with Vicky and tells Barnabas, "Here she is, Sir".
         Barnabas asks Vicky, "Miss Winters, are you all right?"  Vicky
         replies, "Yes".  Barnabas asks, "Are you hungry?" Vicky replies,
         "I'm starving!"  Barnabas asks, "How long has it been since you've
         eaten?"  Vicky replies, "Yesterday"  Barnabas exclaims, "Yesterday?!
         Ben, find some food for Miss Winters and bring it to her room".
         Ben leaves to do so.  Barnabas asks Vicky, "Have you had any 
         sleep?"  Vicky replies, "I've been too frightened to. Once, I dozed 
         off, but woke up when I heard a voice..."  Barnabas asks, "Trask's..."
         Vicky replies, "Yes. I was so afraid!"  Barnabas says, "Poor
         child!  You can stay here. The house belongs to me now".  Vicky
         asks,  "Why are you so kind to me?"  Barnabas replies, "Because I
         hate fanatics, and that's all Trask is".  Vicky asks, "How do you
         know I'm not what he says I am?"  Barnabas replies, "I don't believe
         in witchcraft, and even if I did, I couldn't believe you were
         a witch, not after seeing how you were with Sarah when she
         was ill".  Vicky points out, "But there's so much about me that
         you don't know. Who I am and where I came from..."  Barnabas tells
         her, "I trust you."  Vicky says, "Then I think I should tell you
         the truth about me, who I am and where I came from".  Barnabas
         asks, "What is the truth?"  Vicky replies, "I came from another
         time."  Barnabas asks, "Another time?"  Vicky tells him, "Before
         I came here, I lived in the year 1967".  Barnabas exclaims,
         "What?!"  Vicky continues, "I was working for a governess for
         a Collins Family that will be your descendents".  Barnabas asks,
         "How did you get here?"  Vicky replies, "We were having a seance
         at Collinwood. The last thing I remember was losing conciousness,
         then finding myself here".  Barnabas exclaims, "Incredible!"
         Vicky asks, "Remember the first day I was here when I saw you I
         thought I recognized you?"  Barnabas replies, "Yes".  Vicky
         explains, "That was because I knew a man who looked just like
         you, your namesake, a descendant of yours".  Barnabas says, "I see".
         Vicky asks, "Do you still believe I'm telling the truth?"  Barnabas
         replies, "Yes".  Vicky says, "You can see why I couldn't tell
         anyone".  Barnabas replies, "Yes". Ben comes back and tells
         Barnabas, "I've prepared a tray and put it in Miss Winter's room".
         Barnabas tells Vicky, "Better go to your room now".  Vicky says,
         "I can see you're shocked, but I had to tell you".  Barnabas
         replies, "I'm glad you told me. Now go to your room and get some
         rest. Sleep well".  Vicky goes upstairs.   Barnabas asks Ben,
         "Ben, is it possible she IS a witch?"  Ben asks, "Why do you say
         that?"   Barnabas replies, "She told me something so incredible, I
         don't know what to believe!"  Ben assures him, "I'm sure she's
         not a witch".  Barnabas asks, "Why do you say that? Do you know
         something I don't know?"  Ben replies, "No, but I don't think
         she's the kind of person to be a witch.  I'd better go see if she
         has enough food".  Barnabas says, "All right, Ben"
            Upstair in her new room, Angelique is throwing her clothes
         into a suitcase, packing to leave.  Barnabas comes in and
         says, "Oh, Angelique, there's something I must to tell you"
         Seeing that she is packing, he asks, "What are you doing?"
         She replies, "Packing".  Barnabas asks, "Why?" Angelique replies,
         "Because we've got to get out of here, out of Collinsport.
         Immediately!"  Barnabas protests, "But the minister's on his way",
         but Angelique says, "I don't care! I just want to get out of this
         house!"  Barnabas asks, "Why?  What's the matter?"  Angelique
         replies, "I'm frightened!"  Barnabas asks, "Of what?"  Angelique
         replies, "I'm not sure! I've felt a strange feeling of evil ever
         since I got into this house, a feeling that there's an evil force
         here!"  Barnabas asks, "Evil?"  Angelique continues, "We must
         marry somewhere else!"  Barnabas starts to say, "Well...", but
         then happens to glance into Angelique's suitcase and is surprised
         at what he sees in there. It's Sarah's doll. He takes it out and
         asks, "What's this?"  Angelique, surprised to see it there,
         exclaims, "Sarah's doll!"  Barnabas asks, "What's it doing in
         your suitcase?"  Angelique replies, "I don't know! There's nothing
         in my suitcase but clothes", but Barnabas tells her, "There's no
         clothes in here. Nothing but the doll and some pins lying beside
         the doll.  What does this mean?"  Angelique replies, "I don't
         know!"  Barnabas continues, "It must mean something..."  Angelique
         says, "It mean something strange is happening in this house! It
         means we must leave immediately!"  Barnabas reminds her, "But the
         minister's here. What should I tell him?"  Angelique replies, "Tell
         him we've changed our minds. Tell him we're going to be married in
         town!"  Barnabas replies, "All right" and turns to leave, but
         Angelique then says, "No! Wait! Don't tell him to go away. Tell
         him we want to be married tonight! The sooner we're married, the
         sooner I'll stop being frightened. We must be married tonight!"
         Barnabas, surprised at the sudden change of mind, remarks, "If
         you're sure that's what you want".  Angelique replies,  "I'm sure"
         and tells Barnabas she'll be down in a minute after she checks her
         veil. Barnabas leaves.  A few seconds after, the door suddenly
         slams shut.  Angelique asks, "Who is it? Barnabas?" and goes to
         open the door but finds it locked.  She demands, "Who has locked
         this door?" She senses something and exclaims, "Something is in
         this room with me! I can feel the presence of someone! Who is it?
         Where are you?" She turns and sees the ghost of Jeremiah standing
         by the window and demands, "What do you want? Why do you haunt
         me? Why? Why? Can't you speak?"  The ghost replies, "You summoned
         me!"  Angelique replies, "No, I did not summon you! I did not
         want you here tonight", but the ghost says, "You summoned me!
         You summoned me from my grave! You disturbed my rest! You called
         to me! You disturbed my rest!"  Angelique tells the ghoust, "I do
         not need you! Return to your grave and rest!", but the ghost
         replies, "You robbed me of my rest! I was at peace when you called
         to me..."  Angelique again tells him, "I do not need you now! Go
         back to your grave and rest there!", but the ghost replies,  "I
         cannot! My rest has been disturbed! You brought me back from the
         land of the dead. You disturbed my rest. You must be punished!"
         Angelique screams, "No!!!!!", but the ghost tells her, "You showed
         me no mercy, I will show you none!"
            The clock on the living room mantel shows 9:00. Barnbas,
         Ben and the Reverend Bland wait for Angelique. Barnabas,
         tells the Reverend, "I don't know what's taking her so long.
         She said she was just going to check her veil"
            Jeremiah, laughing maniacally, takes Angelique to his grave.
            Barnabas, Ben and the Reverend Bland continue to wait.
         Barnabas is pacing around nervously.
            The ghost of Jeremiah commands, "Angelique, open your
         eyes!" Angelique does so and asks, "Where..."  Jeremiah tells her,
         "You are in my grave!"  Angelique exclaims, "Grave?!"  Jeremiah
         says, "I was at peace here until you disturbed me!" and starts to
         throw dirt on her.  Angelique screams, "NO! NOOOOOOOOOO!"

            At the old house, Barnabas, Ben and the Reverend Bland
         continue to wait. Barnabas is getting very agitated.  The
         Reverend tries to reassure him, "Now, now, Mr. Collins, in
         all the wedding I've performed, and there must have been over
         a thousand, I've never known the bride to be on time. I can't 
         start yet anyway. None of the guests have arrived".  Barnabas tells
         him, "There will be no guests".  The Reverend startst to say,
         "But your mother and father..."  Barnabas tells him, "They won't
         be here".  The Reverend remarks, "That's unusual. Are they away?"
         Barnabas replies, "No".  The Reverend asks, "Is one of them ill,
         perhaps?"  Barnabas replies, "They're quite well. I must see what's
         keeping Angelique" and goes upstairs. The reverend asks Ben, "Is
         there any reason the parents aren't coming?"  Ben replies, "Aye".
         The Reverend asks, "Perhaps they disapprove of the union?", but
         Ben just replies, "It's for them to tell you." Suddenly, Ben hears
         Angelique's voice calling him, "Ben! Ben! Help me, Ben!"  Ben
         asks, "Where are you?" The reverend, who does not hear Angelique's
         voice, thinking Ben is talking to him, replies, "Right here,
         of course. Have you been drinking spirits?" The voice continues
         to call, "Help! Help!" Ben sees an image of Angelique at
         Jeremiah's grave and runs off. Barnabas comes back downstairs.
         The Reverend exclaims, "Mr. Collins, I demand an explanation!"
         Barnabas asks, "An explanation for what?"  The Reverend explains,
         "Your man, he just ran off!"  Barnabas replies, "I have no
         explanation for anything anymore. There will be no wedding here
         tonight".  The Reverend asks, "Does the bride agree with that?"
         Barnabas replies, "The bride is not in her room".  Naomi comes.
         Barnabas tells her, "Angelique is gone".
            Ben goes to the cemetary. Angelique is lying on the ground
         besides Jeremiah's grave crying.  Ben touches her. Angelique
         gives a start, then sees it's Ben and says, "Oh! I thought it
         was him! Oh, Ben! Oh, Ben! The ghost! The ghost!"  Ben asks,
         "Mr. Jeremiah?"  Angelique replies, "Yes. I summoned him, and
         now he won't go back! He won't leave me alone! He brought me
         here!" Ben laughs, but Angelique warns him, "You're my servant. 
         He'll turn on you too!" Ben, frightened, says, "You'll make him go 
         away!"  Angelique tells him, "I can't control him!" Ben, frightened,
         says, "Let's go, then!"  Angelique announces, "Oh, Ben, I'm going 
         to change, I'm going to be different. I won't ever make anyone 
         unhappy again! I swear!"  Suddenly, the air fills with laughter. 
         Angelique exclaims, "He's back!" Jeremiah's ghost materializes 
         and slowly rises from behind a gravestone. Ben and Angelique flee. 
         The ghost calls after them, "Come back! You cannot escape me! 
            Angelique is back at the old house. Naomi is in the room with 
         her. She tells Angelique, "I would never have believe you if I 
         hadn't seen that bandaged face in the window. Why is this 
         happening? Are you sure you want to go through with the wedding?" 
         Angelique replies, "There WILL be a wedding! Can't you see if
         Barnabas and I must marry tonight before something else happens? 
         I'll make him very happy!"  Naomi says, "I believe you. That's why 
         I'm here. Now what are you wearing?"  Angelique shows her the dress
         she's planning to wear and says, "This. It's the closest thing I 
         have to a wedding dress."  Naomi opens a box, takes out a wedding
         dress, and hands it to Angelique, then gives her some jewelry to
         wear. Angelique starts to cry.  Naomi tells her, "Don't cry. Try
         not to think about what's happened".  Angelique replies, "I'm not
         crying because of that. I'm crying from happiness.  I'm happy for
         the first time in my life. I'll never forget your kindness!"
            Downstairs, the Reverend remarks on Joshua's generous donations
         to the church and tries to get Barnabas to tell him why Joshua
         isn't going to be at the wedding, but Barnabas is evasive. Suddenly,
         there is a gust of wind from the window.  The Reverend remarks,
         "It's just the wind" and goes to close the window, but then
         exclaims, "But the window is closed!!!" More supernatural
         things happen. Furniture is knocked down by an unseen force.
         The chandelier rattles. The Reverend exclaims, "Something's
         very wrong in this house, Mr. Collins! I don't think I can
         perform the service here!", but Barnabas sternly tells him,
         "There will be a wedding and you will stay, Reverend!"
            The wedding ceremony starts. The only people there are
         Barnabas, Angelique, the Reverend, Naomi and Ben.  The Reverend
         marries Barnabas and Angelique with the usual ceremony, asking
         Barnabas, "Do you, Barnabas Collins, take this woman....".
         Barnabas replies, "I do".  The Reverend then asks Angelique,
         "Do you, Angelique Bouchard, take this man...".  Angelique
         replies, "I do".  Barnabas puts a ring on Angelique's finger.
         The Reverend announces, "With the powers vested in me, I now
         pronounce you man and wife".  Barnabas and Angelique kiss. The
         Reverend says, "I congratulate you both". Naomi tells Barnabas,
         "Love her, Barnabas, and be happy!"  Barnabas says, "Champagne!
         Ben, get some champagne!"  Ben leaves to do so.  Barnabas tells
         the Reverend, "Stay and drink with us, Reverend!", but Reverend
         Bland replies,  "No, I'd best be getting back. The wife will
         be missing me. Best wishes" and leaves.
            Angelique is babbling to Naomi, "We should have had flowers.
         I love flowers. There are so many flowers where I come from".
         Naomi replies, "I should have brought some", but Angelique protests,
         "No, I should have arranged for some. Anyway, it couldn't have been
         more beautiful. I'm so happy!" Ben returns bearing a tray with a
         bottle of champagne and some champagne glasses on it. Barnabas
         takes the bottle of champagne and tells Ben to distribute the
         glasses. Ben does so. Barnabas opens the champagne. He goes to
         Angelique to give her the honor of the first glass. But when he
         pours, a red liquid comes out.  Barnabas takes Angelique's glass,
         inspects the red liquid it contains, and exclaims, "This isn't
         champagne! It's blood!!!" Angelique exclaims, "Blood?!?!?"
         She hear's Jeremiah's laughter, which no one else seems to
         hear, and runs off.
            Ben and Naomi are alone downstairs.  Ben is telling Naomi
         he'll escort her back to the new house. Barnabas comes back
         downstairs.  Naomi asks, "How is she?"  Barnabas replies, "All
         right".  Naomi moans, "Why is this happening?  Why do we deserve
         this?"  Barnabas replies, "We don't", but Naomi continues,  "We
         must be guilty of something to be punished like this! Pride..." 
            Angelique is up in her new room pacing around nervously.
         Suddenly, the room is filled with a tinkling music. She asks,
         "Who's playing that?" and looks around puzzled.  She remarks,
         "It's in this room, but it can't be! There's no music box in here.
         I would've seen it before".  Thinking it might be Jeremiah's
         ghost, she calls, "Are you in this room? I must not be afraid!"
         She notices a gift box sitting on a table and remarks, "I've
         never seen that before! It wasn't in here this afternoon!" She
         opens it and find a music box inside. She takes it out and wonders,
         "A music box! But how did it start playing in the package?" Barnabas
         comes in, sees Angelique holding the music box and exclaims,
         "Where did you get that?"  Angelique replies, "It was there on
         the bureau".  Barnabas angrily demands, "Give it to me!"  Angelique
         asks, "Why?"  Barnabas replies, "I don't need to give you a reason!
         Give it to me!"  Angelique asks, "It's hers, isn't it? It's
         Josette's!"  Barnabas replies, "It's mine!"  Angelique continues,
         "But you bought it for HER! Why is it here?"  Barnabas replies,
         "I don't know! It won't be here for long!" and takes it from her.
         Angelique angrily says, "You bought it for her, didn't you? You
         still love her!" Barnabas leaves. The door slams behind him. Angry,
         Angelique runs after him and opens the door, only to find
         Jeremiah's ghost standing outside. Angelique tries to cast a
         spell ordering him back to the grave in the name of Be'elzebub,
         the the ghost replies, "No! He has no power over me!"  Angelique
         asks, "Who has? Who has power over you now?", but the ghost just
         announces, "You will not rest!" Angelique demands, "Tell me!
         Who has power over you now? Tell me!", but the ghost vanishes...

            Angelique is in the living room. She thinks to herself, "I will
         not be able to sleep until I find a way to sent the ghost of
         Jeremiah back to his grave.  Why did he turn on me?  He must be
         under the control of someone else! But who could it be? I must 
         try to rest or I'll lose my mind!" She goes up the stairs.
            Vicky is hiding in a room upstairs.  Angelique comes by outside
         in the hallway.  Hearing someone outside, Vicky becomes frightened
         and accidently knocks something over.  Outside, Angelique hears
         the noise and calls, "Who is in there? Jeremiah? Why don't you 
         go away? Why don't you leave me alone? I am not afraid of you,
         do you understand? I am not!" She opens the door, goes in and
         exclaims, "Vicky! What are you doing here?"  Vicky replies, "I'm 
         very sorry if I startled you."  Angelique tells  her, "You didn't 
         startle me. I just didn't know you were in this room".  Vicky asks,
         "Who did you think was in here? I thought I heard you say 
         'Jeremiah'".  Angelique replies, "That's absurd! Jeremiah's dead!" 
         Vicky asks, "Didn't Barnabas tell you I was here? He's letting me 
         hide here from Reverend Trask".  Angelique remarks, "Very kind of 
         him. Strange he didn't tell me. Barnabas and I are married now".
         Vicky exclaims,  "Married?! When did you get married?"  Angelique
         asks, "You seem shocked and surprised. Why?"  Vicky replies,
         "I suppose because it's happened so suddenly" and asks,
         "Angelique, are you upset about something?"  Angelique replies,
         "No, why should I be upset?"  Vicky replies, "You seem different.
         I hope it's not because you're unhappy I'm in the house".
         Angelique replies, "I have no say in that. Barnabas is the
         master of the house, and I only the mistress. But I don't object
         to you being here.  I'm sorry if I made you feel unwelcome."
         Vicky tells her, "I'm very glad I can stay here. If I had to
         leave, I don't know where I'd go".  Angelique says, "I'm very
         happy you're here.  I want you to stay as long as you want.  I've
         been quetioned by Reverend Trask too, and I know what an ordeal
         it can be. I want you to have refuge here as long as you want.
         Trask will never find out you're here.  Unless someone tells him,
         and no one will do that".
             Barnabas comes down into the living room and finds Angelique 
         sitting there.  He asks her, "How long have you been up?" 
         She replies, "All night. I tried to sleep, but I couldn't, so
         I spent all night roaming the house.  Barnabas, I discovered
         you have a guest here".  Barnabas replies, "I see".  Angelique
         continues, "I was quite shocked to find out you were hiding
         another woman in the house".  Barnabas tells her, "I was going
         to tell you, but so much has been happening I didn't get the
         chance to".  Angelique asks, "Why is she here?"  Barnabas explains,
         "I'm hiding her from Reverend Trask".  Angelique asks, "Are you
         sure that's the only reason?"  Barnabas replies, "What other
         reason could I have? Could it be you're jealous of Miss Winters?
         That's absurd!"  Angelique asks, "Then why are you hiding her?
         Why are you taking the risk?"  Barnabas replies, "Because I don't
         like fanatics like Trask and because I do not believe in witchcraft.
         Even if I did, I wouln't believe she's the witch. Even a witch
         needs a motive, and she has no motive to harm the family. You don't
         believe she's the witch, do you?"  Angelique replies, "I wouldn't
         know. I know nothing of witches".  Barnabas asks, "Then why are
         you so upset she's here?"  Angelique replies, "I'm only upset you
         didn't tell me".   He apoligizes to her.  They make up. Barnabas
         remarks, "Now that you know about Miss Winters, I trust you won't
         tell anyone".  Angelique replies, "I won't". Barnabas tells
         Angelique he has to go out to look for work, but will be back
         in a few hours.  They kiss.  Barnabas leaves.  As Angelique looks
         out the window watching him go, she thinks to herself, "No, 
         Barnabas, I will not tell a soul that Vicky is here. But that
         does not mean that no one will find out...
            Ben is tending the fire at the old house.  Angelique is
         pacing around behind him. When Ben finishes, Angelique tells
         him, "Ben, there's something I want you to do. I want you to
         go to Collinwood, go into Abigail's room, and get that black
         ribbon she uses to tie her hair".  Ben protests, "I can't do
         that! I'll be caught! Going into Jeremiah's room is one thing.
         I could talk myself out of that if I were caught, but Abigail's
         room is different! I can't take a chance like that!"  Angelique
         complains, "Why do you always try to get away from it? You know
         you have no choice!"  Ben asks, "What's so important about a
         black ribbon? What are you going to do now?"  Angelique replies,
         "I'm going to cast a spell on Abigail.  I want her to have a
         dream".  Ben asks, "A nightmare?"  Angelique replies, "No, a
         dream that will be a revelation.  In the dream, she will see
         one of the rooms in this house, and in the room she'll see the
         witch she's been looking for.  She will see Victoria Winters!"
         Ben asks, "Why? What has she ever done to you?"  Angelique
         replies, "It may surprise you, Ben, but maybe Victoria Winters
         IS a witch! Strange things have been happening in this
         house..." She tells him about losing control of Jeremiah's
         ghost, and her suspicion that someone else has wrested control
         of him from her.  She adds, "And as long as she's free, the
         witch hunt will go on".  Ben remarks,  "And there's a danger
         they'll find the real witch around here - you!"  Angelique replies,
         "Yes, Ben, but as soon as they catch Vicky, the witch hunt will
         be over. Go get the ribbon, Ben! I will protect you!" Ben leaves.
            Angelique senses telepathically what Ben is doing, and
         tells him, "Do not be afraid Ben!  Remember, be in and out
         of the room quickly, and bring the black ribbon back to me!"
            Ben sneaks into Collinwood through the front doors (!).
         He listens at the closed drawing room doors to hear who's
         inside, looks around a bit, then goes upstairs. 
            Ben knocks at the door to Abigail's room and, receiving
         no answer, goes in, knowing no one's in there.  Once inside,
         he starts to search through various drawers for the black
         ribbon. Finally, he finds it and mutters, "This must be 
         what she wants".  He turns to leave, but just as he does,
         the door opens and Abigail walks into the room. 
             At the old house, Angelique senses, "Something has happened!
         Something is wrong!  Ben is in some kind of trouble, but what?
         What has happened to him? He is not alone in the room! Someone
         has discovered him!!!"
             Abigail demands, "Ben Stokes! What are you doing in my
         room?" Ben stammers, "Nothing, Miss Abigail..."  Abigail asks,
         "You came here to steal something, didn't you?" Ben replies, "No!" 
         Abigail asks, "What is that you have there in you hand?"  Ben
         replies, "Just a piece of ribbon".  Abigail asks,  "And how much 
         have you stuffed in your pockets?"  Ben replies, "Nothing! I'm 
         telling you the truth!"  Abigail asks, "If you tell the truth, 
         then why are you a convict? If you're not stealing, then what are 
         you doing in this room?"  Ben begs, "Miss Abigail, have a little 
         mercy!", but Abigail replies, "I show no mercy to thieves".
         Ben says, "I can't tell you why I'm here even if I tried!"
         Abigail replies, "If you can't tell me, you can tell my brother
         Joshua".  Ben begs, "Please! No! He'll have me sent back to
         prison!"  Abigail replies, "He'll do more than that.  He'll have
         a few years added to your sentence".  Ben begs, "Please, Miss
         Abigail, I had to come here! I had no choice! The witch!
         She made me come here! She wanted me to..." Suddenly, his
         vocal cords freeze up and he is unable to speak.  Abigail asks,
         "Ben!  What did the witch tell you! Ben, speak up!!!", but to no
         avail.  Ben cannot speak.

            Angelique thinks to herself, "I stopped him just before
         he said my name! But he said one word before I stopped him,
         one word which no one must ever associate with my name:
         Witch!" She takes a stick, lights it in the fireplace,
         lights some candles with it, then proceeds to cast a spell.
         "There is one name I will make ready to receive the word witch.
         And what is that name? Answer me!" A ghostly female voice 
         answers, "Victoria. Victoria Winters!"  Angelique echoes, "Yes! 
         Victoria Winters! And now, let me hear her voice call a little 
            Sarah is in the foyer of Collinwood. Suddenly, she hears
         Vicky's voice calling, "Sarah! Sarah! Can you hear me?"  Sarah 
         asks, "Miss Winters?" The voice replies, "Yes. It is Miss Winters." 
         Sarah asks, "Where are you? I can't see you".  The voice replies,
         "Come to the old house!"  Sarah protests, "But I'm not supposed
         to", but the voice continues, "Come! Come to the old house! Come! 
            At the old house, Angelique is saying, "Yes, come! Come!",
         imitating Vicky's voice and causing Sarah to hear it.
            A little later, Joshua and Abigail come into the foyer,
         which is empty, Sarah having left it. Joshua says, "Of course
         I heard what Ben said, I'm not deaf!"  Abigail asks, "And what 
         are you going to do about it?"  Joshua replies, "I've just done 
         it. I've locked him up".   Abigail complains, "But he said...", 
         but Joshua interrupts,  "I know, he said the witch sent him".
         Abigail asks, "And you're not going to do anything about it?" 
         Joshua replies, "He was prepared to say anything to save himself 
         from a charge of stealing".  Abigail points out, "He was in my 
         room, trying to steal something from me, the black ribbon I use 
         to tie up my hair at night. Something as personal as that is 
         exactly what is needed to cast a spell on someone!", but Joshua
         just replies, "Come on, Abigail! He was probably just looking for
         something valuable and happened to be moving it out of the way!" 
         Abigail says, "I know where the witch must be! Ben came from the 
         old house! We must search there", but Joshua replies, "I can't go 
         to the old house! I've sworn never to go there!"  Abigail sees 
         Sarah come down into the foyer, dressed to go out. She goes out 
         into the foyer and asks her, "Where are you going?" Sarah replies,
         "To see my governess, Miss Winters".  Joshua, who's come out into 
         the foyer too, tells her, "Miss Winters has gone away".  Sarah
         protests, "But she called me. I was playing here and I heard a 
         voice call me and tole me to come to the old house".  Abigail asks, 
         "You heard her voice calling you but you didn't see her?" Sarah
         replies, "Yes."  Abigail asks, "And the voice told you to come to 
         the old house?"  Sarah replies, "Yes".  Joshua tells his daughter, 
         "Sarah, go back to your room", but Abigail tells him, "No, Joshua. 
         Let her go. Here is our chance!" She turns to Sarah and tells
         her, "Run along, child! Go find your governess!" Sarah leaves.
         Abigail excitedly says, "Come, Joshua!" 
            At the old house, Angelique is snuffing out the candles
         she lit to cast her spell.  Barnabas returns and is surprised
         to see her doing this.  He asks, "Angelique, what on earth are 
         you doing? What are you doing with all those candles in the middle 
         of the day?"  Angelique replies, "Snuffing them out, of course".
         Barnabas asks, "But what were you doing lighting in the middle of 
         the day?"  Angelique laughs and replies, "If you could have seen it,
         you wouldn't have believed the spectacle.  Your wife was crawling
         about like a cat, looking for a brooch. I lit those candles so
         I could see better. I was frantic! I love that brooch so much!
         It's a gift from the mother of my loving husband".  Sarah comes
         in through the front doors calling, "Miss Winters! Miss Winters!"
         Barnabas asks, "Sarah! What are you doing here?" Sarah replies,
         "I came to find Miss Winters".  Barnabas asks, "Miss Winters?" 
         Abigail and Joshua come in.  Abigail says, "Yes. Miss Winters".  
         Barnabas says to Joshua, "Hello, Father".  Angelique asks, "Would 
         you like to sit down. I could prepare some tea for everone", but
         Abigail replies, "No, we did not come for tea.  Where is she?  
         Tell them, Sarah, tell them who you came to find".  Sarah replies,
         "Miss Winters".  Barnabas tells Sarah, "But Sarah, you know she 
         went away!"  Sarah protests, "But I heard her calling me! She told 
         me to come here!"  Abigail asks, "Is she here?"  Barnabas replies,
         "Of course not!" Abigail tells him she doesn't believe him and 
         demands to be allowed to search the house. Barnabas denies that 
         Vicky is there and refuses to let her do so. They argue. Suddenly,
         they notice that Sarah is gone. Abigail exclaims, "Where is she?
         Where has she gone?" Joshua asks Barnabas, "I'm sure you'll allow
         us to look for my daughter." Barnabas reluctantly replies, "Of
         course". Abigail contines to talk about witches, and tells Barnabas
         about catching Ben in her room.
            Upstairs, Sarah has found Vicky and is talking with her in the 
         room she's hiding in, telling her, "I heard you! I heard you 
         calling me! I missed you. Why are you living here? Why can't you 
         live with me and give me my lessons?"  Vicky replies, "I can't 
         explain that to you right now".  Sarah begs, "Please, I've been 
         so lonely, I never see my brother Barnabas anymore, and I never see
         you".  Vicky replies,  "I'm sorry, but I can't".  Sarah asks, "It's 
         because of Aunt Abigail, isn't it? I shouldn't have told her you 
         were here".  Vicky exclaims, "You told her I was here?!" Sarah 
         replies, "Yes. She and Father are downstairs right now". Vicky, 
         hearing this, becomes terrified.  Sarah, seeing Vicky's fear, tells
         her, "I know a place where no one will find you. It's a little 
         room in the attic everyone's forgotten about".  She checks outside 
         to see that no one's in the hallway.  Vicky tells her, "Promise to
         to tell no one you've seen me. Especially Aunt Abigail".  Sarah
         replies, "I promise". They leave, Sarah leading the way. They are
         just in time. A few seconds later, Abigail's voice comes calling,
         "Sarah! Come here, child!", followed by Joshua's voice calling,
         "Sarah! Where are you?"
            Later, Abigail has found Sarah and is questioning her upstairs,
         "You know what happens to little girls who tell lies, don't you?"
         Sarah replies, "Yes, Ma'am".  Abigail continues, "You know
         terrible punishments lie in wait for little girls who tell lies,
         especially to their elders, don't you?"  Sarah replies, "Yes,
         Ma'am".  Abigail asks, "I will ask you one last time, have you
         seen Miss Winters?"  Sarah lies, "No, Ma'am".  Abigail gives up,
         "Very well.  I hope for your sake you're telling the truth.
         I shudder to think of what happens to little girls who don't
         tell the truth".
            In the living room, Barnabas tells Joshua, "You can see Miss
         Winters is not here".  Joshua replies, "I apoligize for the intrusion".
         Barnabas remarks, "I'm surprised you share Aunt Abigail's hysteria".
         Joshua replies,  "My children are very important to me. I hate to see
         a child of mine come to harm." He glances at Angelique and adds, "Or
         disgrace".  This clearly upsets Angelique.  Abigail comes down with
         Sarah. She announces, "Trask must be sent for immediately!" Barnabas
         exclaims, "Trask?!"  Abigail continues, "In spite of what the 
         child has said, I believe Miss Winters is in the house."  Barnabas
         protests, "But you searched it yourself and didn't find her here".
         Abigail replies, "A witch has powers to hide herself.  The rite of 
         exorcism must be perfomed to drive her out!" Barnabas refuses, 
         "I will not let that fraud in my house!"  Abigail exclaims, "He 
         is not a fraud! He's a man of God!"  Joshua suggests to Barnabas, 
         "Let him come and perform his mumbo jumbo and get it this all over 
         with.  When it fails, he'll have to go".   Angelique tells Barnabas,
         "Your father's right, Barnabas".  Barnabas finally agrees, "Very
         well, it's against all my priniciples, but I'll agree".  Abigail
         trimphantely announces, "It will save us all!"  Joshua says,
         "Thank you, Barnabas. Goodbye" and turns to leave. Sarah asks,
         "Can we come back some other time?"  Joshua replies, "I think it
         would be best not to. Come along". They leave. Angelique grumbles
         to Barnabas about how badly Joshua treated him, then asks,
         "Are you going to let them go through with it, the exorcism?"
         Barnabas replies, "Yes" and goes upstairs. Angelique lights a
         stick and lights some candles once more and thinks to herself,
         "What a surprise it will be for all of them, especially for that
         fraud who calls himself a Reverend. Won't they be surprised when
         they find someone who appears to be the witch". A ghostly voice
         says, "Vicky! Vicky Winters!"  Angelique echoes, "Yes, Vicky

            Angelique is in her old room in the servant's quarters
         doing something with a deck of Tarot Cards. She talks to the 
         cards, "It's been a long time since I've had work for you!" She 
         starts to build a house of cards, and continues to talk to them,  
         "With your help, I will rid this house not only of a young and 
         beautiful enemy, but of all suspicion to myself. The Reverend 
         Trask will find his witch!  She will come running to him.  The 
         moment is almost here!"
            Barnabas and Vicky are in her room.  Vicky exclaims, "Reverend
         Trask is coming to this house?!"  Barnabas replies, "He'll be here 
         any moment".  Vicky asks, "You're not going to turn me over to
         him, are you?"  Barnabas replies, "No".  Vicky asks, "Then why is
         he coming here?"  Barnabas explains, "I'm going to let him go
         through with his rite of exorcism.  I'm going to let him go
         through with his mumbo jumbo.  When it fails, he'll have to admit
         defeat and this will be all over".  Vicky tells Barnabas, "I'm
         afraid to be in the same house with him. I wish I could get back
         to my own time".  Barnabas asks, "Are you sure you didn't imagine
         all that?"  Vicky insists it's true, then says, "I'd better get
         back to the secret room in the attic", but Barnabas tells her,
         "That won't be necessary.  Trask will not be coming up here.  The
         ritual will be performed at the threshold. According to the belief,
         all witches in a house must cross the threshhold at the climax of
         the ceremony. You will be safe when this is over".  Vicky suddenly
         gives a start.  Barnabas asks, "What's the matter?"  Vicky asks,
         "Didn't you feel it? A sudden cold..", but Barnabas replies, "No,
         I didn't feel a thing".  Vicky remarks, "I suppose it's because I'm
         frightened".  Barnabas assures her, "Remember, you are completely
            Angelique is in her old room saying, "First the chilling cold,
         then the fire!" Looking at the house of cards she's built,
         she remarks, "That room is here, completely in my power!"
            Trask has arrived and is arguing with Barnabas in the living room
         of the Old House. He demands, "Surrender the witch to me!"  Barnabas
         replies, "As far as I know, there's no witch in this house".
         Trask insists,  "Miss Collins has convinced me there is.
         Surrender her to me before I am forced to expose and catch her!"
         Barnabas asks, "Don't you want to go through with your exorcism?
         I thought you'd enjoy it".  Trask angrily exclaims, "The rite of
         exorcism is a terrible thing! Surrender the witch to me!"
         Barnabas insists, "There is no witch in this house!"  Trask
         replies, "Then I must perform the rite of exorcism!" Barnabas
         tells him, "You will not go past this room".  Trask replies,
         "There is no need for me to. From here, my power reaches to
         the utmost reaches of this house!"  He goes to the front doors,
         opens them and announces, "The next person to cross this
         threshold will be one who possesses the power of evil!" Barnabas
         disdainfully says, "If you'll excuse me, I have better things to
         do" and leaves.
            Trask takes out what looks like some sort of divining
         rod and starts the exorcism, "I give warning to the powers
         of darkness that the powers of light are at hand! Victoria
         Winters! Victoria Winters! The powers of light have come to
         do battle with the powers of darkness! Your destruction is
         at hand!" He takes out a piece of yellow chalk and draws
         a circle on the pavement outside the front doors. Inside
         the circle he writes a "V".
            Upstairs in her room, Vicky hears Trask shouting, "Victoria
         Winters! Victoria Winters! Come forth!  Surrender yourself to
         the powers of light! Victoria Winters!  Let the witch come forth!"
            In Angelique's room, Angelique starts to cast a spell, "I call
         upon the heart of fire that burns within the heard of ice, the
         fire that freezes and does not consume itself.  I call it into
         this room of my own construction.  Heart of fire, heart of ice,
         freezing in eye of coldest evil, burn!  Come to me and burn!"
         She sets the house of cards afire and commands, "Burn! Burn! Burn!"
            In Vicky's room, Vicky peers out the window and fearfully
         listens to Trask shouting, "Vicky Winters! Let the witch come
         forth!" A fire starts behind her.
            Outside, Trask writes a "W" in the circle beside the "V"
         and shouts, "Vicky Winters! The dust now has your name! Come
         forth to the threshhold! Cross from the darkness into the light!"
            In Angelique''s room, Angelique continues to chant,
         "Eye of fire, heart of fire! I command you, burn, burn, burn!"
            In Vicky's room, Vicky turns around and is startled to
         see a fire in her room. She take a blanket and manages to
         smother it.  She hears Trask outside shouting, "Come forth before
         the consuming fire drives you out!"  She turns and sees another
         fire, screams, "No!!! It can't be!!!", and tries to smother it
         with a quilt, but the fire won't go out.
             Barnabas is walking through a hallway outside Angelique's
         old room in the servant's quarters.  He hears a voice inside
         chanting, "Heart of fire that burns in the heart of ice!"
         Puzzled, he mutters, "Angelique?", but before he can can investigate
         further, he hear Vicky's voice shouting, "HELP! FIRE! FIRE!"
         and runs off to help her.
             Outside, Trask has lit the ends of his divining rod and
         calls, "Victoria Winters! Your name is now known to the fire!
         Come forth! You will be..."
             Barnabas runs into Vicky's room shouting, "What is it?",
         but finds that the room is empty.  
             Trask shouts, "Come forth! Come forth! You are summoned by
         the fire of everlasting light!"  Vicky comes running down the
         stairs screaming, "Fire! Fire" and runs out the front door. Trask 
         grabs her, triumphantly announces, "I have the witch! I have the 
         witch!" and drags her off.  
             Angelique and Barnabas are standing outside the front doors.
         Barnabas remarks, "I don't understand. I just don't understand.
         Where is Reverend Trask? He's gone".  Angelique suggests, "Maybe 
         this foolishness is over".  Barnabas tells her, "But Miss Winters 
         is gone, too. Where is she? I heard her call, 'FIRE!', but when I 
         got to her room, she wasn't there. There was no evidence of a fire, 
         and now I can't find her anywhere in the house".   Angelique 
         remarks, "You don't think...No, that's impossible. There's
         no such thing as a witch. But so much has happened that can't
         be explained".  Barnabas replies,  "I just don't believe in 
         witchcraft. But it would explain everything so easily. Miss 
         Winters, a witch? Did you hear her shout 'Fire!'?"  Angelique 
         replies, "No, I was on the other side of the house in the sewing 
         room. I couldn't hear her from there".  Barnabas, looking puzzled,
         says, "But I thought I heard your voice coming from your old room".
         Angelique replies, "Old room? Why would I be in there?"  Barnabas
         insists, "I thought I heard your voice", but Angelique replies,  
         "No, I was in the sewing room".  She sees that Barnabas has a 
         funny expression on his face and asks, "What's the matter,
         Barnabas?"  Barnabas replies, "Nothing. I thought I heard your 
         voice coming from your old room, but I must have been mistaken".
         Angelique says, "We're both exhausted. I think I'l go up and rest 
         for awhile" and goes upstairs.  
            Barnabas thinks to himself, "Heart of fire burning in the
         heart of ice. Such strange words. She was in there, saying that.
         I heard her.  She said she was in the sewing room, but I
         searched the sewing room when I was searching for Miss Winters,
         and she was not in there.  Why did she lie to me? Is it possible?
         NO! I can't believe that! Not my wife! That strange girl who says
         she's from the future, yes, but not my wife! Not my wife!"
            Angelique returns to her old room, and remarks to the
         ashes of the cards, "You have done well! You heard the
         reverend. 'I have the witch! I have the witch!'".
            Barnabas continues to think, "'I was sent by the witch'.
         That's what Ben said when he was caught.  Does he know who
         the witch is? Can he tell me? I've got to find out! There is
         a witch. I know that now. But who? Who is she?"
            In her room, Angelique remarks, "Victoria Winters is the
         witch!  Everyone believes that now, even Barnabas!"  She takes
         a handful of card ashes in her hands, crushes them and says,
         "Perhaps some old customs should be revived.  We all know what
         the fate of witches should be!  Ashes!  Ashes!"

            Barnabas goes downstairs to the cellar of the new house,
         opens the door to a cell, and steps inside. Inside, he finds
         Ben sleeping and awakens him.  Ben asks, "Mr. Barnabas! What
         are you doing here?"  Barnabas replies, "I have to talk to you".
         Ben protests, "But your father ordered you never to set foot
         in this house!"  Barnabas explains, "I bribed a servant to let
         me in".  Ben asks, "What for?"  Barnabas replies, "I have a 
         question for you. I want you to answer truthfully.  What were 
         you doing in Aunt Abigail's room? You said you were sent by the 
         witch. What did you mean?"  Ben lies, "Nothing.  It was only an 
         excuse I made up to cover stealing".  Barnabas asks, "You only
         went there to rob her?"  Ben lies, "Yes", but Barnabas replies,
         "I don't believe you. You were sent by the witch. Who is she? There 
         are only two possiblities, Vicky Winters, a girl we know little 
         about, or Angelique, my wife!"  Ben asks, "How can you suspect your 
         own wife?"  Barnabas replies, "Because of something that's 
         happened."  Ben asks, "What?"  Barnabas replies, "Never mind. 
         Who sent you to Aunt Abigail's room?"  Ben insists, "No one. I 
         went to rob her".  Barnabas points out, "But what has Aunt Abigail 
         have to steal? She has no jewelry. She believes they're the Devil's 
         temptation."  Ben replies "Money", but Barnabas replies, "But Aunt 
         Abigail has none. She's the poorest member of the family. Why are 
         you afraid, Ben?"  Ben likes, "I'm not afraid".  Barnabas asks, 
         "Are you afraid of the person who sent you?"  Ben says, "You don't 
         believe in witches. You said so yourself", but Barnabas replies,
         "Strange things have been happening. I'm beginning to believe
         in the forces of evil".  He asks again, "Is Vicky Winters the
         witch?" Ben does not answer. Barnabas tells him that Vicky's
         been arrested for witchcraft and tells him, "If Trask has his
         way, she'll be sentenced to death. Is she the witch?" Ben refuses
         to answer.  Barnabas grabs him and tells him, "If you know otherwise
         and don't tell, you'll be responsible for her death."  Ben shouts,
         "I know nothing! Leave me alone!  Let go! Let go!", panics, grabs 
         a bottle, hits Barnabas over the head with it, knocking him out, 
         then apoligizes, "I didn't mean to do that, but I had to!" to the 
         unsconcious Barnabas, then flees.
            Joshua goes down to the cellar and into the cell. Barnabas,
         who has now regained consciousness, says, "Father!"  Joshua replies,
         "I couldn't believe my ears when Riggs said you were locked in the
         cell!  I can't believe it! You helped Ben escape!"  Barnabas replies,
         "I did not come to help Ben escape.  I had to talk to him."  Joshua
         asks, "Why do you want to talk to a thief? He was in Abigail's
         room with no explanation".  Barnabas points out, "He did give an
         explanation. He said he was sent by the witch".  Joshua asks,
         "What are you suggesting?  Are you saying you believe him?  Are
         you telling me you believe in witches, black magic and voodoo? I
         thought I raised you to have more sense than that!"  Barnabas
         counters, "You must admit the possiblility of the supernatural
         exists".  Joshua says, "If there is a witch, she has been caught".
         Barnabas exclaims, "Father! You can't seriously believe Miss
         Winters is a witch!"  Joshua replies, "I'm not sure of anything
         anymore. All I know is that this family has been seized by madness,
         and I want to put an end to it!"  Barnabas exclaims, "Trask is a
         charlaton! Are you going to let a girl be put to death on the word
         of a charlatan?"  Joshua replies, "Her guilt or innocence is up to
         the court".  Barnabas begs, "You are the most influential man in 
         the community. You can use your influence to help her", but Joshua 
         refuses, says, "Now, good night, son!" and leaves.
            Barnabas is pacing around in the courtroom.  The jailer
         brings Vicky out. Vicky exclaims, "Mr. Collins! It's so good
         to see you!" Barnabas asks, "Are you all right?"  Vicky replies, 
         "Yes".  Barnabas notes, "You look pale".  Vicky replies, "I'm 
         frightened. I don't know what going to happen. They're talking 
         about a trial".  Barnabas assures her, "I will do everything I 
         can to help you", and asks, "Did Trask harm you?"  Vicky replies,
         "No, he only brought me here. He kept saying, 'I have the witch!'".
         Barnabas tells her, "I will help you, but you must do something
         for me. You must tell me everything that happened after I left
         you in the room".  Vicky tells him about the fires.  Barnabas tells
         her, "I heard you shouting, 'Fire!', and ran to your room, but saw
         on evidence of a fire, no ashes."  Vicky insists, "But there was a
         fire! The whole room was burning!", and dejectedly says, "I know
         what you're thinking. You're thinking I ran from the room because
         I AM a witch and Trask made me see the fire!"  Barnabas replies, "I
         don't know what to believe. I only know you say you saw fire and I
         found no evidence of a fire".  Vicky remarks, "Now that I think of
         it, there was something strange about that fire. When I was trying
         to put it out, I accidently put my hand in it, but I wasn't burned.
         There was a coldness there. I felt as though I was touching a cake
         of ice".  Barnabas, a strange look suddenly appearing on his face,
         asks, "What did you say?"  Vicky replies, "There was no heat, just
         the feeling of cold".  Barnabas mutters, "Fire and ice. Fire like
         ice. Heart of fire burning in the heart of ice".  Vicky asks, 
         "What?"  Vicky replies, "Never mind. I know now that you are not 
         a witch. I  had my doubts about you, but I have them no longer. I 
         will do everything I can to help you".  The jailer comes and takes 
         Vicky away. Barnabas thinks to himself, "Heart of fire, fire that 
         burns in the heart of ice. Those were the words Angelique was 
         saying just before Vicky shouted 'Fire!'. Then Angelique lied about 
         being in her room.  Why was she saying those words? Why would she 
         lie? Unless... I don't want to believe that! But only one man
         knows the truth. I've got to find him! I've got to find him!"     
            Ben is in a shed on the waterfront, drinking something from
         a jug. He hears a noise and calls out, "Who is it? Who's there?",
         but then decides it's nothing and says to himself, "There's
         nothing out there. No one can find me here. When it's light, I'll 
         go somewhere far away where no one can find me, not even HER, not
         even the witch." But Ben is wrong. Someone comes through the door.
         Ben exclaims, "Barnabas!"  Barnabas tells Ben, "Don't be afraid,
         Ben.  No one's with me."  Ben asks, "How did you know where to find
         me?"  Barnabas replies, "I guessed. No one ever comes here. I was the
         one who showed you the place, remember? I came to tell you you're
         safe from the witch. She's been caught. There's nothing for you
         to worry about."  Ben asks, "Who are you talking about?"  Barnabas
         replies, "Victoria Winters, of course".  Ben asks, "Is everyone 
         sure she's the witch?"  Barnabas replies, "Yes".  Ben asks, "Has 
         she confessed?"  Barnabas replies, "She didn't need to. The 
         evidence against her is overwhelming".  Ben asks, "Will she burn
         or hang?"  Barnabas replies, "Yes".  Ben remarks, "What a terrible
         way to die", but Barnabas says, "She will suffer, but she's a
         witch and must be destroyed".  Ben reminds him, "But you weren't
         so sure she was a witch when you were in the cell".  Barnabas
         explains, "I had thought Angelique might be the witch, but now
         I know she can't be".  Ben asks, "Why?"  Barnabas explains, "Because
         of you, Ben.  If she were, you would have told me. You've been a
         loyal friend, and I know you wouldn't put the family in danger. If
         Angelique were the witch, you would've told because if you didn't,
         I would still be in danger, and so would everyone else in the
         family - Sarah, Mother. But now we're safe because the witch has
         been caught".  Ben asks, "Supposing, just supposing, I knew who the
         witch was but couldn't do anything about it".  Barnabas asks, "What
         do you mean?"  Ben replies, "Supposing she had the power to stop me
         if I tried to say her name?"  Barnabas asks, "You mean if she had
         some sort of power over your power of speech?"  Ben replies, "Aye.
         I would still be loyal, wouldn't I?"  Barnabas points out, "You
         could still tell me.  I've been teaching you to read and write.
         Write her name. V. V for Victoria Winters."  Ben exclaims, "No! I
         can't!", but Barnabas gently tells him, "Don't be afraid, Ben. On
         this dust on top of this barrel. Name the witch.  Make her initial
         in the dust on top of this barrel. 'V' for Vicky, 'A' for
         Angelique". Ben writes a letter in the dust. It is a "V". Barnabas
         asks, "V?", but then Ben puts another stroke on the letter, a cross
         stroke.  Barnabas remarks, "A.  A for Angelique!"

            Barnabas says, "Do you know it's true that Angelique is the
         witch? You're not just saying it to protect someone, are you? Of
         course not. Sorry, Ben.  Yesterday, when I was outside her 
         doorway listening to her say those words, I think I knew. My 
         wife! All she's done, and no one's ever suspected her!  Victoria 
         Winters is sitting in a cell, and my wife is still practicing 
         witchcraft! Tell me all you know about her!"  Ben replies, "I can't 
         answer any questions! I've already told you that I can't!", but
         Barnabas prods him, "You must! I must stop her!"  Ben warns
         Barnabas, "You can't! No one can stop her!", but Barnabas
         replies, "I'll find a way. How much of this is she responsible
         for? Was she responsible for Josette and Jeremiah falling in
         love?"  Ben replies, "Aye."  Barnabas continues to question Ben
         and learns that Angelique has been responsible for everything.
         Barnabas moans, "I killed Jeremiah, my friend. I killed him
         because of a love potion. And he never knew. Yet his ghost haunts
         her, so he must know now. Now he knows.  But it is too late.
         Why has she done this?"  Ben replies, "Because she loves you".
         Barnabas exclaims, "LOVE?!  SHE TORE MY FAMILY APART!!".
         He turns to leave, but Ben calls out, "Wait! Be careful!"
         Barnabas replies, "I don't care what happens to me anymore",
         but Ben warns him, "Be careful, or she'll still be with us,
         harming people!"  Barnabas agrees, "Yes, I'll be careful."
         Ben tells him, "I'll go with you", but Barnabas replies, "No,
         you must stay here, she must not suspect".  Ben asks, "Let me
         do it for you! I could hide in the woods with a gun! I know the
         route she takes!  I'll head west after that and start a new
         life", but Barnabas replies, "No, I must do this myself.  She
         has taken away my reason for living. I must do this. Tonight!"
            Barnabas returns to the old house. He calls out, "Angelique!"
         Receiving no answer, he takes out two glasses, then a bottle from
         out of one of his pockets.  He looks at the bottle and thinks to
         himself, "One drop. It is said that one drop is enough to cause
         death. Once she drinks it, no amount of witchcraft will save
         her!"  Angelique comes downstairs and asks him where he's been.
         Barnabas replies, "Running an errand in the villiage". Angelique
         remarks, "I was frightened being alone in the house. What did you 
         do in the village? Did you go to the shipyards?"  Barnabas replies,
         "No".  Angelique asks, "What did you do?" Barnabas replies, 
         "Nothing".  Angelique protests, "That's not true. You must've 
         done something. You're supposed to tell me everything now that 
         we're married, you know!"  Barnabas replies, "And so are
         you. You start. I got chilly coming back from the village.
         I think I'll have a sherry. Will you join me?"  Angelique replies
         that she will, then tells Barnabas, "There is something about me 
         you don't know".  Barnabas pours two glasses of sherry, his body
         obscuring what he is doing from Angelique. He pours some
         poison in one of them.  Angelique continues, "I always thought
         that once we were married..."  Barnabas interrupts, "Were you 
         certain that that would happen?"  Angelique replies, "No, I wasn't 
         certain at all. I hardly dared dream it. I'm not used to asking for 
         things...Let's get away from here! I want to get away from 
         everything that's happened!" Barnabas replies, "I can never 
         forget what's happened".  Angelique promises, "I can make you 
         forget!  I will love you..." They are interrupted by a knock at 
         the door. It's Naomi. Barnabas lets her in.  She asks Barnabas, "Are
         you all right?  Joshua told me about Ben's escape!"  Angelique asks,
         "What happened?"  Naomi asks Barnabas, "You mean you didn't tell her?"
         Barnabas explains, "I was with Ben in his cell when he escaped".
         Angelique feigns ignorance and asks why Ben was incarcerated.
         She tells Naomi, now seated in a chair, "We were just about to have
         some sherry. Please join us" and offers her glass to Naomi, saying,
         "Barnabas poured me a glass, but I really prefer port".  Barnabas,
         horrified, tries to prevent Naomi from taking the glass, saying,
         "I'll pour you a fresh glass!", but Angelique gives it to her,
         saying, "I haven't touched it".  Just as Naomi is about to take a
         sip, Barnabas exclaims, "Wait! There's a chip in the glass!"  He
         reaches out to take it, "accidently" knocks the glass out of her
         hand and remarks,  "Oh, how clumsy of me."  Angelique picks up the
         glass and says, "I'll get something to wipe it up".  As she is leaving,
         she feels around the edge of the glass and is surprised to find that
         there's no chip.  She then smells the glass, and a funny expression
         crosses her face.
             As Angelique is wiping up the sherry, Naomi and Barnabas
         continue to talk.  Naomi tells Barnabas, "I also came here for
         another reason. A package came for you from Paris".  Barnabas
         remarks, "It must be a wedding present for me and Josette".
         Naomi says, "Oh, I thought you had ordered something".  Barnabas
         replies, "No".  Naomi remarks, "We've had so many difficult
         moments lately".  Barnabas tells her, "We will have no further
         difficulities now, Mother".  Naomi asks, "What do you mean?"
         Barnabas replies, "I just meant that we've already had more than
         our fair share".  They discuss Ben's attempted theft of Abigail's
         hair ribbon. Barnabas notes that a hair ribbon is exactly the sort
         of thing a witch would need to cast a spell and asks, "What do you
         think, Angelique?"  Angelique replies, "I wouldn't know. The only
         reason I know for a man wanting a ribbon is to give it to the woman
         he loves.  But then I'm a romantic".  As Naomi turns to leave,
         Barnabas tells her, "Oh, mother, have Riggs bring that package in
         here".  While Angelique shows Naomi to the door, Barnabas goes to
         the desk and takes a knife out...
            A little later, Barnabas is in the living room alone. He has
         opened the package. It is the portrait of Josette. It pains
         Barnabas greatly to read the note Josette had written that came
         with it, "Father insisted that this be his wedding present to us.
         At first I laughed and said, 'Papa, Barnabas will have me. Why will
         he need a portrait?" He crumples the note into a ball and throws it
         into the fire. Angelique comes downstairs and asks, "What's that?"
         Barnabas replies, "A wedding present".  Angelique asks, "For us?"
         Barnabas replies,"No".  Angelique comes around to the front of the
         portrait, sees what it is, and says, "I'll put it in the storeroom",
         but Barnabas replies, "No! Andre might want it".  Angelique asks,
         "Why do you keep looking at her? I wouldn't think you'd want to
         after what she did to you".  Barnabas asks, "What did she do? Tell
         me."  Angelique replies, "She fell in love".  Barnabas asks, "Did
         she fall in love, or was she under a spell?"  Angelique notes,
         "You're much kinder to her than you were a month ago. Then, you
         called her fickle and conniving".  Barnabas replies, "Perhaps I've
         changed my mind".  Angelique asks, "Why?  Do you still love her?
         Perhaps I'm just jealous, that's all! I just love you so much!"
         Barnabas ask, "Angelique, what do you think love is?  Do you really
         know?" Angelique replies, "Of course I do".  Barnabas coldly remarks,
         "Do you?", and walks away.
            It is later. Barnabas goes into their bedroom, takes out
         the knife, and stabs down into the form under the blankets...

            Noticing that what he has just stabbed feels strange,
         Barnabas flings aside the sheets and finds that what appeared
         to be Angelique in bed was nothing but a pile of pillows
         arranged to look like a body.  Angelique comes out of the
         shadows in the corner and asks, "Do you really hate me that
         much?"  Barnabas replies, "You are the witch! I know that now! 
         I was listening outside the door when you said those words to 
         make Vicky Winters run from her room. I think I know everything 
         now!"  Angelique asks, "Do you know that I love you? I will always 
         love you, remember that!"  Barnabas raises the knife, but Angelique
         stops him with magic.  Barnabas says, "Then you and I define love 
         differently! I am able to kill you without a second thought!" and 
         raises his arms to strangle her, but once again, she stops him 
         with her powers and tells him, "You cannot harm me! I have powers!
         I never wanted you to know that! You can put your arms down now.  
         I could have made those arms embrace me, made you love me, but 
         that is not how I wanted you. I wanted a man, not a puppet. I 
         could not be so cruel."  Barnabas exclaims, "CRUEL?!"  Angelique
         tells him, "I will stop using my powers if you want".  Barnabas
         moans, "You made Josette turn away from me!! You destroyed all
         our lives, yet you have no remorse?!"  Angelique replies, "I
         never wanted Jeremiah to die", but Barnabas tells her, "You are
         as responsible for his death as if you'd pulled the trigger!
         When Aunt Abigail said there was a witch responsible for
         everything, I just laughed.  What did you do?  I want to know
         everything, just for the record!"  Angelique protests, "If you
         had loved me the way you loved me in Martenique, none of this
         would have happened".  Barnabas exclaims, "I loved Josette!"
         Angelique replies, "And I hated her!  I wanted what she had!
         That first night, I wanted you dead, but when I saw you lying
         there suffering, I couldn't stand it". She confesses to everything.
         Barnabas angrily tells her, "I am leaving this house tonight!"
         Angelique begs, "No, Barnabas, stay!", but Barnabas replies,
         "Nothing you say can make me stay. I'm going to take you into
         Collinsport and turn you in to the authorities!"  Angelique warns
         him, "No! You will never do that! If you leave me, if you say a
         word to anyone against me, something may happen to Josette!  I
         could show you a vision of her dying!"  Barnabas says, "No!"
         Angelique continues, "It would not be real, but it COULD BE!
         For Josette's life, you will remain with me!"
            Nathan and Millicent are out in the garden.  Millicent is
         worried about someone seeing them alone, something highly improper
         in the 18th century.  She complains, "You are breaking all the ruls
         of courtship!"  Barnabas comes into the garden and Millicent,
         terrified at being caught alone with Nathan, exclaims, "Oh, I
         am ruined!"  She lies to Barnabas, "I was taking a stroll and
         just happened to run into Lt. Forbes". Forbes backs her in her
         lie. Barnabas asks, "May I beg your help?" and asks, "I must see
         Josette tonight".  Millicent replies, "But she's asleep. Everyone
         is".  Barnabas asks, "Could you wake her up? I must see her
         tonight!  Will you do this for me?" A voice replies, "That won't
         be necessary".  Everyone turns to see who it is.  It's Natalie.  She
         tells Barnabas, "She doesn't want to see you".
            Back at the old house, Angelique says to herself, "He has left
         the house.  My eyes cannot follow him. Where have you gone? He
         would not dare! He knows I would kill Josette if he went to see
         her! I msut have eyes to follow him! I must hae eyes to show
         me everything he sees!"
            Barnabas and Natalie are arguing inside the new house.  Barnabas
         insists, "I must see her!"  Natalie asks, "What do you want to
         tell her? That you're sorry you married her maid?  She is unhappy
         enough!  You have no right to cause her more sleepless nights!"
         Barnabas tells Natalie, "I must talk to her! She is in danger!"
         Natalie asks, "From whom?"  Barnabas replies, "I cannot tell you".
         Natalie says, "There's been so much trouble. Who are you talking
         about?"  Barnabas replies, "The witch!"  Natalie asks, "Miss
         Winters? Are you saying she's still practicing voodoo in her
         cell? I find that hard to believe".  Barnabas replies, "If you
         knew what I've discovered, you'd find it impossible to believe!
         You must pack your bags and leave with Josette!"  Natalie refuses.
         Barnabas insists, "It's a question of saving her life!", but
         Natalie refuses to believe him and refuses to let him see Josette.
         Barnabas warns her, "If anything happens to Josette, I hold you
            At the old house, Angelique has drawn a picture of a pair
         of eyes on a piece of paper.  She starts to cast a spell,
         "Eyes of the night, there is a body you can borrow and be my
         eyes in the night. Through these eyes, I will be able to Barnabas
         wherever he goes, see whoever he sees. Find him now at Collinwood
         where he must be! Find him!"
            In the garden at Collinwood, Millicent is crying over having
         been "discovered". She blames Nathan, "It is completely your
         fault, sir! If you had been a gentleman, you would have known
         better".  Nathan acts offended and replies, "You should not have
         seen me at all if you think I am not a gentleman".  Millicent
         apoligizes. Barnabas comes back out and asks Millicent, "Cousin
         Millicent, will you be seeing Josette in the morning?"  Millicent
         replies, "Of course".  Barnabas asks, "Could you tell her I'll be
         in the garden at 9? Could you tell her to meet me there?"  Millicent
         replies, "That's not proper!"  and refuses, but Nathan tells her,
         "Don't be old fashioned.  Perhaps Barnabas can do you a favor in
         return", clearly implying that in exchange for her favor, Barnabas
         will not tell anyone about seeing them together alone. Millicent
         agrees to try.  Barnabas says, "Good. I'm going to be in the garden
         at 9 o'clock. Please tell her that".  Millicent gives a sudden
         start. Nathan asks, "What's wrong?"  She replies, "I just felt a
         sudden chill. Something is watching us!" Barnabas asks, "Where?"
         Millicent replies, "Over there!"  Nathan looks and tells her,
         "There's nothing there".  Millicent, also seeing nothing, admits,
         "No, there isn't".  Nathan tells her, "Perhaps you'd better be
         going in".  Millicent agrees and goes in.  Nathan sees something
         and says, "There IS something out there! Eyes, watching us!" There
         is a squeaking sound.  Nathan asks, "What's that?"  Barnabas
         suggests, "A bird?", but Nathan says, "No it isn't".  They
         continue to talk. Nathan asks, "Something wrong?" Barnabas replies
         that there is but doesn't tell him what.  Nathan, thinking it's
         just marital problems, volunteers to help him, saying, "I've had
         more experience with women like Angelique than you."  Suddenly, he
         exclaims, "Barnabas!  Look!  A bat, watching us!"  From outside
         the fence, a very large, very ugly bat is indeed watching them...

            Barnabas is in the garden waiting for Josette.  He thinks to
         himself, "Why doesn't she come? I must find a way to persuade her
         to leave Collinsport immediately!  But I can't tell her the truth
         or Angelique will kill her.  Where is she?  Why doesn't she come?
         Josette! You must come!  You must listen to me or you will die! You 
         will die!".  Someone finally comes.  But is it Millicent, not 
         Josette.  Barnabas asks, "Where's Josette?"  Millicent replies, 
         "She refused to come. The countess has forbidden her from seeing 
         you, and Josette refuses to disobey her. But I really believe 
         Josette must be afraid".  Barnabas asks, "Afraid of what?" 
         Millicent replies, "Of herself and what might happen. I believe 
         she still loves you.  And I think the countess believes it too. 
         Why else would she forbid her from seeing you?"  Barnabas says, "I 
         must speak to her. She's in danger, and she'll be in danger until 
         she leaves Collinsport. I must talk to her".  Millicent protests,
         "But I've already told her and she refused".  Barnabas replies, 
         "Then we must meet by 'accident'".  He asks her to take Josette
         out on a walk so he can 'accidentally' run into her.  Millicent
         complains, "But that's not proper! Your mother wouldn't approve 
         of that!"  Barnabas asks, "Would she approve of Nathan Forbes 
         sneaking you into Collinwood in the middle of the night?"  Millicent
         replies, "Nathan and I have become quite close".  Barnabas warns 
         her, "Be cautious. Other women have found Lt. Forbes attractive 
         and found him, somewhat less than dependable".  Millicent refuses 
         to listen to Barnabas' warning, saying, "I'll form my own opinions 
         about Lt. Forbes".  Barnabas tells her, "Whatever transpires 
         between you and Nathan is your own decision, but I must ask you 
         to help me! I must speak to Josette!" Millicent agrees to help. 
         They agree on a time and place the 'accidental' meeting is to 
            At the Collinsport Gaol, a young jailer takes Vicky into the
         visiting room.  Barnabas arrives.  With him is a man of about
         fifty, gray haired and distinguished looking. Barnabas introduces
         him as Judge Madigan. He tells Vicky the judge wants to defend her.
         Judge Madigan explains, "Miss Winters, I myself do not believe
         in witchcraft, but many people around here do.  I know the Reverend
         Trask, and know he is nothing but a complete fraud. I would 
         like the chance to confront him in open court and expose him for the 
         fraud he is."  He tells Vicky he'd like to ask her some questions,
         "Do you have any reason for wanting to harm the Collins family?"  
         Vicky replies, "No".  The judge asks, "Before you came to 
         Collinwood, were you acquainted with any member of the Collins 
         family?"  Vicky pauses for quite awhile, then answers, "No".  The
         judge asks, "Trask bases much of his case on your mysterious
         arrival.  What do you have to say about that?" Barnabas tries to
         answer for her, "Her carriage overturned...", but the Judge
         tells him, "Please, I'd prefer to hear it in Miss Winter's own
         words. Where did you live before coming to Collinsport?" Vicky
         doesn't answer.  Barnabas pipes in, "She lived in a foundling
         home in Boston".  The judge once again admonishes Barnabas,
         "Please! I'm asking Miss Winters!"  He continues his questioning
         and asks Vicky, "You say you lived in a foundling home before
         coming here?"  Vicky replies, "Yes".  The judge asks, "What is
         the name of the foundling home?"  Barnabas asks, "Why is that
         necessary?"  The judge explains, "I must contact them and find
         someone willing to testify on Miss Winter's behalf". Vicky tells
         him, "That would be impossible".  The judge says, "But surely you
         must have had friends there".  Barnabas says, "I will testify on
         her behalf".  The judge protests, "But you've only known her for
         a short time!"  Vicky interrupts, "He might as well know the
         truth!"  The Judge asks, "The truth?"  Vicky blurts out the
         truth about coming from the future.  The judge exclaims, "What
         are you saying?!"  Barnabas tries to lie that Vicky's saying
         strange things because was injured in the carriage accident, but
         Vicky says, "No! He has to know the truth!"  The judge says, "I
         hardly know what to say.  I can't take a story like this into
         court. It's too incredible. Miss Winters, I'd like to help you,
         but..."  Vicky moans, "You can't help me. No one can help me.
         No one". The judge leaves.   Barnabas promises, "Don't worry, Miss
         Winters. I'll find someone to help you.  You'll be free very soon".
         Vicky asks, "What do you mean?", but Barnabas just replies, "I
         just have to do something and you'll be safe" and leaves without
         explaining further. The young jailer, who's been watching quietly
         in the background, tells Vicky, "Don't cry."  Vicky tells him, "I
         forgot you were here. You can take me back to my cell now".  The
         jailer tells her, "Wait a minute. I have something I believe is
         yours" and gives her a piece of jewelry.  Vicky exclaims, "My
         locket! Where did you get this? They took it away from me when I
         got here".  The jailer tells her, "I saw the expression on your
         face when they took it away from you. It must mean a lot to you".
         Vicky replies, "It does. It was given to me by someone I really
         care for". He tells her he paid a guard to give it to him so he
         could give it to her.  She asks, "Why?"  He replies, "Because I
         think you're innocent. I know you're not a witch".  Vicky asks, 
         "How?"  The jailer replies, "I've heard you crying at nights".
         Vicky asks, "And that proves I'm not a witch?"  The jailer replies,
         "It proves it to me. It proves that your just a frightened girl 
         who couldn't harm anyone. I might be able to help you.  If Mr. 
         Collins can't find anyone to defend you, I can try.  I know a 
         little about the law.  I'm studying to be a lawyer. That's why 
         I'm working here."  Vicky exclaims, "That's very kind of you!"
         The jailer tells her, "At least now you know someone here believes
         in you. For what that's worth".  Vicky gratefully tells him, "It
         means a great deal! More than you know!"  The jailer tells her,
         "I'm going to have to take you back to your cell now, but remember,
         I'll be right outside if you need anything".  Vicky replies, "Know
         something? I'm not afraid to go back there now. I'm really not
            Barnabas is lurking about outside Collinwood. Josette and
         Millicent come walking along.  Josette sees Barnabas and exclaims,
         "Barnabas!"  Barnabas tells her, "Josette! I must speak to you!",
         but Josette replies, "That's impossible! My aunt has forbidden me
         from seeing you!"  Barnabas tells her, "You must break you promise!
         I must speak to you! Only for a moment! It's urgent", but Josette
         replies, "I cannot believe it could be that urgent".  Barnabas
         tells Millicent to go.  Millicent leaves.  Josette begs, "Barnabas,
         please, it is better for both of us if we do not see each other".
         Barnabas tells her, "Josette, you must leave Collinsport
         immediately! There's a great danger to you here! You must leave
         Collisport tonight!", but Josette replies, "As I have told my Aunt
         Natalie, it is not proper for me to leave Collinsport until a
         proper period of mourning for Jeremiah has passed.  I owe at least
         that to my husband".  Barnabas tells her, "But Jeremiah was not
         really your husband. You two were under the spell of a witch".
         Josette asks, "What?"  Barnabas explains, "Jeremiah did not really
         steal you from me, and you did not really betray me".  Josette
         remarks, "I do not believe in witchcraft".  Barnabas tells her,
         "Then answer me one question. Did you really deceive me?" Josette
         pauses, then says, "It all seemed like a dream. It didn't seem
         real".  Barnabas tells her, "It doesn't seem real bacause a witch
         cast a spell on you. She's plotting against you this very minute".
         Josette asks, "How do you know all this?"  Barnabas replies,
         "Because I have discovered who the witch is!"  Josette asks, "Who?"
         Barnabas replies, "I cannot tell you. You would be in even more
         danger than you are now if I did.  I can only tell you this. If
         you do not leave Collinsport, you will die! Even now the witch is
         watching us and plotting your death!" They suddenly hear a squeak
         and notice that a big, ugly bat is hovering nearby...

            Josette is in the drawing room at Collinwood. Natalie comes
         downstairs, goes into the drawing room and asks Josette,
         "What did you want to see me about?"  Josette replies, "I must
         ask you to do me favor.  There is not time for me to say a proper
         farewell to everyone. The carriage is coming in an hour".  Natalie
         asks, "Carriage?"  Josette explains, "I'm leaving Collinsport".
         Natalie asks, "Why? Is it Barnabas? What did he say to you?"
         Josette replies, "It makes no difference what he said.  I've made
         up my mind to leave Collinsport, and nothing you or anyone else
         says can stop me!"  Natalie exclaims, "Josette! This is insane!
         I forbid you to leave Collinsport tonight!", but Josette replies,
         "You cannot stop me. I must leave here as soon as possible!" Natalie
         asks, "Because of what Barnabas told you?  What is it?" Josette
         tells Natalie that Barnabas had warned her that she was in danger
         if she stayed here.  Natalie asks, "What do you mean? What kind of
         danger?"  Josette replies, "He did not tell me. He just told me to
         trust him".  Natalie asks, "Why must you leave tonight?"  Josette
         replies, "Barnabas said to leave immediately".  Natalie protests,
         "It's not safe for a woman to travel alone at night", but Josette
         replies, "I won't be alone. Barnabas is sending a servant to
         accompany me".  Natalie exclaims,  "A servant?! To accompany a
         lady?!" She tells Josette she'll accompany her instead.  Josette
         goes upstairs to pack.  Abigail comes into the drawing room and
         tells Natalie, "The Reverend Trask was here a little while ago
         to discuss how we should best proceed with the witchcraft trial",
         but Natalie informs her, "Tell your brother we had to make
         arrangements on short notice.  We are to leave Collinsport tonight".
         Abigail exclaims, "You can't be serious! You can't leave right
         now that legal proceedings against the witch have started! The Rev.
         Trask considers you and Josette to be important witnesses!", but
         Natalie replies, "There are more important witness.  Angelique,
         and the Rev. Trask himself.  They were both in the house during
         the exorcism".  Abigail asks,  "What am I to tell my brother?  Why
         are you leaving?"  Natalie replies, "I don't know".  Abigail
         asks, "You mean you're leaving immediately and don't know why?"
         Natalie explains, "Josette's decided to go, and I can't let her
         go alone.  I have no choice but to go with her".  She tells Abigail
         she's got to go pack, excuses herself and leaves.
            Barnabas and Josette meet again in the garden.  Josette plays the
         music box, which Barnabas has just given her and tells him, "It's a
         beautiful gift, Barnabas!"  Barnabas tells her, "I was going to give
         it to you as a wedding present.  I want you to keep it with you as a
         reminder that I'll be with you soon.  The witch has no power over 
         you at a distance. You'll be safe".  Josette tells him, "I'm 
         worried", but he tells her, "There's no need to be. You'll be 
         safe".  Josette tells him, "I'm worried about YOU".  Barnabas tells
         her, "You needn't be.  When I've done what I have to do here, I'll 
         meet you in Boston".  Josette asks, "But what about your marriage 
         to Angelique?  How can you meet me in Boston when you're still 
         married to her?"  Barnabas replies, "By the time I next see you, 
         I will no longer be married to Angelique".  Josette asks, "Does 
         this have something to do with Angelique", but Barnabas refuses to 
         tell her, saying only, "Remember, I love you very much" and kisses
         her gently.
            Abigail goes to the old house and knocks on the doors. 
         Angelique answers.  Abigail exclaims, "I must talk to you at 
         once! Where's Barnabas?"  Angelique replies,  "Upstairs. Do 
         you want me to get him?"  Abigail tells  her, "No, I'd prefer 
         to talk to you alone."  She looks into the living room, sees 
         the portrait of Josette hanging above the mantel and asks, "Well, 
         what is THIS doing here?"  Angelique explains, "It came from Paris. 
         It was to be a wedding present for Barnabas".  Abigail replies,  
         "I know that, but why is it hanging there now?"  Angelique explains,
         "Barnabas hung it there the other evening. Over my objections".
         Abigail asks, "What was he thinking of?"  Angelique replies, "I'm 
         afraid he still thinks of her".  Abigail remarks, "Well he should 
         stop! His obligations are to YOU now. The trial is about to begin. 
         Are you still willing to testify against the witch?"  Angelique
         replies, "Yes".  Abigail tells her, "Good. Your testimony is more 
         important than ever now.  Two of our most important witnesses are 
         no longer available.  Josette and the countess have left town".
         Angelique exclaims, "Left?!"  Abigail tells  her, "The carriage 
         left an hour ago".  Angelique asks, "Why?"  Abigail replies, "I 
         don't know".  Barnabas coming down the stairs, sees Abigail and 
         asks, "Did you come to see me?"  Abigail replies, "No, I had 
         something to discuss with Angelique, but we're finished now" 
         and leaves.
            Barnabas comes downstairs, carrying a wooden box with him. He puts
         the wooden box on a table.
            Angelique, furious, tells Barnabas, "You have made a great
         mistake, Barnabas! You have tried to betray me, but you shan't
         succeed! By sending Josette away, do you think you've made
         her safe? I have more powers than you think! Look behind you,
         look!"  Barnabas does so.  He sees the portrait of Josette
         slowly turn into a skeleton.   He tells Angelique, "I will not
         be frightened by your tricks, Angelique.  You will not decieve
         me! You may have the power to distort paintings, but you cannot
         harm Josette.  In order for you to harm her, you must know where
         she is!"  Angelique asks, "What other plans do you two have?"
         Barnabas lies, "None".  Angelique says, "You're lying to me!"
         Barnabas remarks, "I don't know what you're talking about".
         Angelique exclaims, "Stop! I'm no fool! You sent her away so
         you could go to her after you kill me!"  Barnabas replies, "There
         is no reason for me to do that now.  Josette is gone and you can
         no longer harm her", but Angelique replies, "Your Josette may be
         safe, but no one else is".  Barnabas asks, "What do you mean?"
         Angelique replies, "I'll show you!!" and runs upstairs. Meanwhile,
         Barnabas opens the box and checks a duelling pistol inside, then
         puts the pistol back in the box and closes it.  Angelique comes
         running down the stairs holding something.  Barnabas sees what it
         is and exclaims, "Sarah's doll!"  Angelique explains, "This is what
         I'm going to do to keep you here, Barnabas!"  She starts to stick
         pins into the doll.  Barnabas orders, "Give me that doll!", but
         Angelique replies, "Don't come any closer, Barnabas!  This pin is 
         aimed right at her heart, and I'll kill her if you come any 
         closer!"  Barnabas begs, "No! Please! I won't leave Collinwood".
         Angelique replies, "I'll make certain you won't leave.  As long 
         as she's on the brink of death, you won't leave.  She will not die 
         unless you deceive me again, but she will come close..." Barnabas 
         suddenly takes the gun out of the box and shoots Angelique with it,
         then runs up to her and grabs the doll from her.  Angelique collapses
         at the base of a pillar and gasps, "What have you done?!"  Not yet
         dead, she puts a curse on Barnabas.  She tells him, "You didn't do
         your job well enough, Barnabas.  I'm not dead yet, and while I can
         still breathe, I will have my revenge.  I set a curse on you,
         Barnabas Collins.  You wanted your Josette so much, well you shall
         have her, though not in the way you would have chosen.  You will
         never rest, Barnabas, and you will never be able to love anyone,
         for whoever loves you will die. That is my curse, and you will live
         with it through all eternity!" then expires. The sound of breaking
         glass is heard.  A bat flies into the room and attacks Barnabas,
         biting him on the neck.  Barnabas screams.

         Josette and Natalie area at an Inn called "The Three Bells."
       At the moment Barnabas is bitten, Josette starts to feel a strange
       feeling in her throat.  Noticing that Josette is acting strangely,
       Natalie asks, "Are you cold?"  Josette replies, "No".  Natalie
       asks, "Are you feeling ill?"  Josette replies, "No".  Natalie
       continues, "Something's wrong.  What is it?"  Josette replies,
       "I just felt some strange vibrations.  I just had the strange
       feeling that someone or something was trying to communicate with
       me".  Natalie assures her, "You're just tired from the trip",
       but Josette insists, "No, it's like nothing I've ever felt before.
       I have the feeling it has something to do with Barnabas".  Natalie
       tells her, "You just need a good night's sleep.  We're both exhausted
       from the coach ride and have another exhausting ride tomorrow",
       but Josette continues, "If Barnabas saved us only to put himself
       in danger, I'd never forgive myself!"  Natalie assures her that
       Barnabas is all right and tells her, "To ease your mind, I'll read
       the Tarot Cards for you and show you that it has nothing to do with
       Barnabas.  Will that make you feel better?"  Josette replies, "Yes,
       much better".
         At the Old House, the bat has left. Barnabas is bleeding profusely
       from two small holes in his neck. Ben comes in and finds both Barnabas
       and Angelique both lying on the floor.  He exclaims, "He's killed her!
       Somebody's finally managed to kill her!  But she's killed Mister
       Barnabas too!".  He examines Barnabas and corrects himself, "No
       she didn't!  He's still alive!  I've got to help him, but how?
       I can't bring him back to Collinwood.  Joshua would have me locked
       up again.  I'll bring him up to his room, then I'll get a doctor,
       that's what I'll do!"
         At the Three Bells Inn, Natalie looks at the Tarot cards and
       tells Josette, "I don't understand it. I've never seen an
       arrangement of cards like this."  She explains to Josette that
       the card of the lover is surrounded by ominous cards. Josette says,
       "Barnabas is in danger!"  Natalie, noticing that Josette is holding
       her hand to her throat strangely, asks, "Josette, why are you holding
       your hand like that?"  Josette replies, "That's where I felt the
       vibrations earlier". She pulls her hand away.  Natalie exclaims,
       "Josette! You're bleeding!" 
          Barnabas, now in bed, explains to Ben, "She put a curse 
       on me! A wicked cruel curse! A bat!  She made a bat appear and
       attack me!!"  Ben tells him, "I'll go get a doctor", but Barnabas
       replies,  "It's too late for a doctor! The bat! Ben, watch out for 
       the bat!"  Ben tells him, "I saw no bat".  Barnabas tells him, 
       "There was a bat! It came broke through the window, swooped down 
       and attacked me!  Angelique, where is she?"  Ben replies, 
       "Downstairs.  She was lying a few feet from where you fell.  What
       happened to her?"  Barnabas replies, "I shot her".  Ben remarks, "I 
       didn't think it was possible for anyone to kill her".  Barnabas asks,
       "She's dead?"  Ben replies, "She must be. Anyone who's lost as 
       much blood as she did must be dead".  The door suddenly opens.  Ben 
       is wrong.  Standing there is Angelique.  She announces, "I'm not 
       dead, Ben, and I'm not going to die. I want to see Barnabas".  Ben
       replies, "Well, he doesn't want to see you.  He almost died because 
       of you".  Angelique starts to say,  "He must not die! If he does....",
       but abruptly stops.  Ben asks, "What?", but Angelique just replies, 
       "Never mind".  Angelique looks at Barnabas, who's now lapsed into 
       unconsciousness, and says, "I want him to hear me!  I want him to hear 
       how sorry I am."  Ben asks, "First you cast some fiendish spell on 
       him, and now you're sorry?"  Angelique explains, "Did you see what
       he did to me? I thought I was going to die!  Now I will try to lift
       the curse if I can.  I'm going to take care of him".  Ben says,  "I'm
       going to call a doctor to do that".  Angelique tells him, "No doctor
       can help him."  Ben asks, "What happened? What kind of curse did you
       put on him?", but Angelique refuses to tell him.   She tells Ben,
       "We must find a way of keeping him alive.  If he dies, there will be
       no way of removing the curse.  After he dies, something much worse
       will happen to him. If he dies, he will become one of the living dead!"
       Ben protests, "People don't come back to life after they die", but
       Angelique tells him, "Yes they do, Ben.  And when they do, they are
       cursed with eternal life!"
          At the Three Bells, Natalie is trying to wipe the blood from
       Josette's neck but cannot. She exclaims, "Incredible! Every time
       I wipe the blood away, it comes back.  Yet there is no wound!"
       Josette says, "I must go back to Colliwood immediately! Barnabas
       needs me!  The vibrations I felt earlier must mean something! So
       must the cards!"  Natalie reminds her, "But Barnabas sent you away
       for your own safety", but Josette insists,  "I must return
       immediately!" Natalie manages to convince Josette to at least wait
       till morning.  Josette agrees to wait, "All right. But only till
       daylight!"  Natalie tells Josette she's going to bed, but Josette
       says, "I'll stay here awhile. I can't sleep right now".  She goes
       and sits by the fire.
          At the old house, Barnabas is lying in bed, alone in the room
       now.  He regains consciousness and, delirious, says, "I must go
       to Josette!  I must go to Josette immediately!"  He gets out of
       bed, gets a suitcase and starts to pack, saying "I am coming,
       Josette!".  Angelique comes into the room and exclaims, "Barnabas!
       What are you doing up?!"  Barnabas exclaims, "Stay away from me!
       Don't touch me!"  Angelique begs, "You've got to let me help you!"
       Barnabas asks, "What did you do to me?", and continues to pack, 
       again saying, "I must go to Josette".  Angelique tells him, "Josette 
       can't help you.  Only I can!", but Barnabas just continues to pack. 
       Angelique tells him, "Tell me where Josette is and I'll send for 
       her!!", but Barnabas replies,  "I will never tell you! She is safe 
       from you!"  He continues to drone, "I will come to you, Josette. 
       Nothing can stop me! Nothing!"  But he is wrong. He collapses.
       Blood continues to flow from the wound...
          At the Three Bells, Josette has fallen asleep next to the
       fire.  From the same spots on her neck, blood flows too...  
       There is a squeaking sound. A large bat has appeared outside the

          It is the next morning. At the old house, Angelique is trying
       to wipe up her blood from the floor, but it will not come off. There's
       a knock at the door.  Angelique panics and does not know what to do.
       She goes and looks out the window.  While she is doing so, the
       door opens and Naomi comes in, announcing, "I knocked several
       times, but you didn't answer. I came to see Barnabas".  Angelique
       replies, "I'm afraid that's impossible".  Naomi asks, "Why?"
       Angelique lies, "Because he's not here."  Naomi tells Angelique,
       "I'll wait".  Angelique tells her, "I do not know when he's coming
       back. He's left town".  Naomi asks, "Where did he go?" Angelique
       replies, "He didn't tell me".  Upstairs, Barnabas lies ill.  Naomi
       asks Angelique, "Are you sure Barnabas didn't say where he was
       going?"  Angelique replies, "I asked him several times, but he
       refused to say".  Naomi asks, "When did he leave?"  Angelique replies,
       "Last night".  Naomi asks, "And he didn't say where?"  Angelique
       replies, "He said nothing about where or why. It must have been
       something urgent or he wouldn't have left so abruptly".  Naomi tells
       Angelique she can't stay in the old house all by herself and asks her
       to come stay at Collinwood while Barnabas is away. Angelique refuses,
       saying she wants to be home to greet Barnabas when he comes back.
           Upstairs, Barnabas hears voices downstairs...
           Naomi sees the bloodstain on the floor and asks, "What's this?"
       Angelique lies, "I spilled a decanter of wine".  Naomi remarks, "It
       looks like blood!"  Angelique replies, "Mrs. Collins, you're just
       trying to frighten to get me to come to Collinwood!"  Naomi asks,
       "Are you certain nothing's happened?"  Angelique replies, "I just
       spilled some wine. Barnabas will be furious! It was one of his 
       favorites".  She refuses to go to Collinwood, saying, "I'm safe 
       here. The danger is past. The witch has been caught" 
          Upstairs, Barnabas gets up and tries stumbles over to the door.
       He doesn't quite make it, and ends up falling against the bureau,
       knocking a bottle off it onto the floor.
          Downstairs, Naomi hears the noise from upstairs and asks, "What
       was that? I thought I heard something".  Angelique replies, "I didn't 
       hear anything". Naomi listens and, hearing nothing further, says, 
       "It must have been my imagination", says goodbye and leaves.      
          Upstairs, Barnabas manages to open the door and say, "Mother!",
       but then collapses onto the floor.
          Angelique comes upstairs and sees Barnabas lying on the floor
       and asks, "Oh, Barnabas! Where were you trying to go?"  Barnabas
       replies, "I heard my mother's voice!", but Angelique tells him,
       "You heard nothing" and helps him back to bed, then tells him, "You
       should never have gotten up!  You must rest quietly!"  Barnabas
       moans, "Something terrible is happening to me!"  Angelique tells him,
       "I'm going to help you".  Barnabas asks, "What has happened?"
       Angelique tells him, "Only I can help you."  Barnabas  continues to
       asks, "What has happened to me? Tell  me!"  Angelique tells him,
       "Nothing is going to happen to you. I won't let it"  Barnabas moans,
       "Help me!"  Angelique gets a tankard and tells Barnabas, "Barnabas,
       you must drink this.  It will help you".  Barnabas moans, "Yes...Help
       me!"  Angelique tells him, "You must drink it very slowly".  Barnabas
       asks, "What is it?"  Angelique replies, "It's the only thing that
       can help you now".  Barnabas asks, "Will it stop this terrible thing
       that's happening to me?"  Angelique replies, "Yes, it's supposed to".
       Barnabas drinks it as instructed.  Angelique remarks, "If only you
       hadn't tried to betray me, none of this would have happened."
       Barnabas asks, "What's going to happen?"  Angelique replies, You're
       going to get better".  She tells him to close his eyes and open
       them when she tells him to.  She then goes to the windows and draws
       the closed drapes back, flooding the room with sunlight, then tells
       Barnabas, "Open your eyes now". Barnabas opens his eyes and screams
       in pain, covering his eyes with his hands.  Angelique closes the
       drapes again and moans, "The medicine, it should have worked!  I had
       hoped that it would!  Oh, Barnabas, why did you try to betray me?
       What has been done cannot be undone!  Why did you do it?"
          In the drawing room at Collinwood, Naomi is discussing
       Barnabas' strange, sudden departure with Joshua.  Joshua voices
       his theory, "You know as well as I do where he's gone.  He's
       gone to see the wife of the man he killed.  We've seen the last
       of Barnabas, just as we've seen the last of Josette".  Naomi
       refuses to believe this.  There's a knock at the door.  Naomi
       goes and answers it.  It is Josette and Natalie.  Naomi exclaims,
       "It's you!"  Josette replies, "Yes".  Joshua, seeing Josette,
       exclaims, "Josette!"
          Everyone goes into the drawing room.  Natalie says, "Please.
       I can't explain any of it.  Are you sure nothing has happened?"
       Naomi assures her nothing has.  Natalie continues, "I have a
       foreboding, an ominous feeling".  Naomi asks, "Of what?"  Natalie
       replies, "I wish I only knew!"  Naomi asks, "Why did you suddenly
       leave Collinwood?"  Josette replies, "Barnabas said I was in danger
       here".  Naomi asks,  "What kind of danger?"  Josette replies, "He
       didn't say. But last night, I felt he was in danger. I must see him."
       Naomi tells her, "He's not at the old house".  Natalie remarks,
       "Perhaps it is Barnabas this is all happening to...".  Josette
       abruptly gets up and starts out of the room.  Naomi asks, "Josette!
       Where are you going?"  Josette replies, "To the old house".  Naomi
       protests, "But he's not there".  Josette replies, "Then I will find
       out where he is".  Naomi tells her, "Angelique knows nothing".
       Josette replies, "We shall see!!" and rushes off.  Natalie goes
       after her.  Naomi asks Joshua, "Well, are you worried about where
       Barnabas is now?"  Joshua coldly replies, "Not in the least", but
       after Naomi leaves the room, a worried look comes onto his face.
          Josette and Natalie have gone to the old house and asked
       Angelique where Barnabas is.  She tells them, "Even if I did know,
       I would not tell you".  Natalie gasps, "He's here! I can feel
       it!"  Angelique lies, "He's not here.  Now, I'd rather you left".
       Josette tells her, "Barnabas was supposed to meet us".  Angelique
       becomes upset and says, "Please leave!  Both of you!  Why are you
       telling me this?  You only want to hurt me!"
          Upstairs, Barnabas can hear Josette's voice downstairs and
       moans, "Josette! Josette!  I can hear your voice!  Come to me!
       Josette!  Come to me!  Don't leave me!  Josette!"
          Josette and Natalie are about go out the front door, but Natalie
       stops and ponders, "Wait! What is it I feel in this house?"
       Josette hears a voice upstairs say, "Josette!" and exclaims,
       "Barnabas!  He's here!  I can hear him!" and starts running up the
       stairs.  Angelique shouts, "No! You can't go upstairs!", but
       Josette doesn't stop.
          Josette finds Barnabas lying on the floor of his room and says,
       "Oh, Barnabas!" Barnabas, delirious and not recognizing her, continues
       to moan, "Where is Josette?  I heard her voice!"  Josette tells him,
       "I'm here".  She sees the wound on his neck and exclaims, "Oh!
       Barnabas!"  Barnabas continues to moan, "Where are you, Josette,
       where are you?  Josette??"

          Josette tells Barnabas, "I am Josette!", but Barnabas replies,
        "No, Josette is far away by now".  Josette again tells him, "I
        am Josette!"  Barnabas replies, "Then you must go far away!"
        Josette asks, "You said there was a witch. Who is it? You must
        tell me now!"  Barnabas is about to tell her when he sees that
        Angelique has appeared at the door.  He faints...
           Barnabas has been put in bed.  Angelique, Josette and Natalie
        are in the room with him.  Angelique complains, "You should not
        have disturbed him!"  Josette says, "You said he had gone away!",
        but Angelique does not answer, speaking instead to Barnabas,
        "Darling, can you hear me? You must have some rest".  She turns
        to the Countess and Josette and tells them, "You should not
        be here. Both of you!"  Natalie remarks,, "He is obviously very 
        ill.  What happened to him?"  Angelique replies, "I wanted to 
        protect him".  Natalie asks,, "Protect him? I insist on knowing 
        the truth!"  Josette tells her, "He said something about witchcraft.
        He was about to tell me more when he collapsed".  Angelique tells
        them, "I'm afraid it's something worse than witchcraft. It's the
        plague"  Natalie exclaims, "The plague?! Is that what the doctor 
        said?"  Angelique replies, "I have not called a doctor".  Natalie
        exclaims, "What?!" Angelique explains that she doesn't want to
        call a doctor because he'll have Barnabas taken away and put him
        somewhere in quarantine to die all alone, that she knows something
        about medicine and would prefer to treat him herself here.  Natalie
        says, "This is no time for amateur remedies!" and insists on calling
        a doctor.  Angelique tries to argue her out of it, but to no avail.
        Natalie insists on calling a doctor and leaves to do so.  Josette
        looks at the bite marks on Barnabas' neck and asks, "These terrible
        gashes! What could they be?"  Angelique replies, "They should be of
        no concern to you, and I must insist that you leave immediately
        - for you own safety, of course".  Josette refuses,  "No! I've got
        to stay and see what the doctor says".  Angelique insists that she
        leave Barnabas.  Josette agrees to a compromise, "I'll wait down-
        stairs, then, and if that offends you, I beg your forgiveness!" and
        leaves. Angelique mutters, "You will beg me for more than forgiveness
        when I'm finished with you!"
           A doctor comes and examines Barnabas.  Natalie asks, "What
        are your conclusions?" The doctor replies, "Frankly, I'm at
        a loss to explain his condition".  Natalie asks, "What CAN you 
        say?" The doctor replies, "Obviously, he's been bitten by a 
        rodent of some kind.  The bite is very fierce.  Most likely, the 
        rat or whatever animal it was is crazed".  Angelique exclaims, 
        "The plague!"  The doctor says, "That is my surmise".  Natalie
        asks, "And now you will proscribe the proper treatment for him?" 
        The doctor replies, "There is no treatement for the plague".
        Josette, who's just come into the room, says, "I heard what you 
        just said! You're saying there's very little hope!"  The doctor 
        tells her there isn't and says, "He must be removed from this house 
        and put in quarantine".  Natalie asks him to leave Barnabas here. 
        At first the doctor refuses, citing safety reasons, but Natalie 
        points out to him that his diagnosis is uncertain, and that he 
        would have "the gratitude of the Collins family" if he leaves 
        Barnabas here. The doctor reluctantly agrees and leaves.  Natalie 
        leaves to to tell the Collinses about Barnabas. Angelique tells 
        Josette, "You have heard what the doctor said. My husband should 
        be isolated!"  Josette replies, "There is witchcraft here.  He 
        almost named the witch before he collapsed.  And I think I know 
        who the witch is!  I will return shortly! I think I know how to 
        save him!"
           Josette is at Collinsport Gaol visiting Vicky. Vicky asks,
        "The doctor said there was no hope whatsoever?"  Josette replies,
        "Yes, but we both know better than that, don't we? What do you 
        want?  What must I do?"  Vicky, puzzled, replies, "I don't know 
        what you're talking about".  Josette begs, "Raise the spell, 
        please!" Vicky asks, "You think I'm the witch, don't you?"
        Josette tells her, "If you can save Barnabas, perhaps I can 
        save you!"  Vicky replies, "I have no powers! I am not a witch!" 
        Josette promises her, "Within an hour of his cure, you will be 
        escorted safely out of Collinsport!"  Vicky insists, "I have no 
        power.  I am not a witch!"  Josette begs, "Please! I beg of you! 
        He's dying!"  Vicky says, "Perhaps there is something I could do 
        for YOU."  Josette replies, "It is not I who needs help, it's 
        Barnabas", but Vicky continues, "You must leave here! You are in 
        great danger. You must go away from here".  Josette asks, "Why?" 
        Vicky replies, "Because a terrible fate awaits you, a terrible 
        death."  Josette exclaims, "You ARE a witch!"  Vicky replies, "I am 
        not.  In my room, there is a book that tells the future of the
        Collin family."  Josette again exclaims, "You are a witch!"  Vicky
        replies, "No. Find the book. Read it and leave Collinsport now
           Barnabas is lying in bed.  Angelique is alone with him.
        She asks, "Barnabas! Barnabas, can you hear me?" Barnabas replies, 
        "Yes".  Angelique tells him, "Now listen well.  You almost told 
        Josette about me, didn't you?  The countess has told your family
        about you.  They will insist on seeing you.  You must not tell them
        about me.  Josette's destruction is assured the moment you do! 
        Her death is assured the moment you say one word to anyone, 
        understand?"  Barnabas replies, "Yes. Save her. Save Josette, I 
        must save her..."
           Natalie and Josette are searching Vicky's room. Natalie
        exclaims, "Her story is so incredible! This story about coming
        from the future!"  Josette reminds her, "The 20th century, she 
        said". Josette finds the book and exclaims, "Aunt Natalie! Look!" 
        She reads the title, "The Collins Family in America".  Natalie
        says,  "Well, open it". Josette just stands there.  Natalie asks,
        "Are you afraid?"  Josette opens the book and exclaims, "1965! 
        That's when it was published!" Natalie, reading over her shoulder, 
        looks at the publication location, "In Bangor, Maine. But Bangor 
        is in Massachusetts".  Josette leafs through the book and finds her 
        page and exclaims, "Natalie! Look! It's my portrait! But it just 
        arrived from Paris last week! How could it be?"  Natalie replies,
        "I don't know".  Josette starts to read the text, "Josette DuPres
        Colllins, wife of Jeremiah Collins.  She was born in Martenique.."
        She pauses and exclaims, "She has to be a witch!", and continues
        reading, "Born in Martenique, she came to Collinsport in 1795
        to marry Jeremiah Collins..." Suddenly, she stops reading and
        exclaims, "No! I would never do that! Never! Never!"  Naomi asks, 
        "Do what?"  Josette finishes reading, "...came to Collinport in 
        1795 and died by her own hand in the winter of the same year."
        (Note: Nice bit of historical accuracy.  In 1795, there was no
        state of Maine.  Maine was then a part of Massachusetts.  It
        didn't split off to become a seperate state till later).

           Josette asks, "Died by my own hand! Why does it say that?!" 
        Natalie remarks, "Miss Winters is a devil!"  Josette asks Natalie, 
        who's taken the book, "Give it to me!"  Natalie replies,"No!"  
        Josette says, "You must! I can't believe what I've just read!" 
        Natalie tells her, "Then don't. It's all lies. I know you would
        never take your own life".  Josette asks, "Do you?"  Natalie replies,
        "Yes. Even after all that has happened here, you are very strong".
        Josette demands, "I insist you give me the book! I must know if
        Barnabas lives or dies!"  Natalie refuses, "No. If you find one
        fact here, one thing that is true, you will believe the whole thing
        is true.  Let me read it".  Josette agrees, "OK".  Natalie starts
        reading from the book,  "Jeremiah Collins met Josette DuPres while
        on a trip to Martenique..."  Josette exclaims, "That's not true!
        Jeremiah never came to Martenique!  Barnabas met me while on a trip
        to Martenique! I didn't meet Jeremiah till I came here".  Natalie
        remarks,  "See? All lies". She continues reading, "Josette DuPres,
        daughter of Andre DuPres, owner of  the largest sugar plantation in
        Martenique, came to Collinsport to marry Jeremiah..."  Josette
        exclaims, "That's not true either!  I came to marry Barnabas!  It's
        as if it was written by someone knew some of the facts, but got
        others wrong".  Natalie continues reading, "Once in Collinsport, the
        marriage between Josette and Jeremiah became unhappy.  It was rumoured
        that Jeremiah's nephew Barnabas was attracted to Josette, but
        realizing the futility, moved to England and lived a long and
        prosperous life there".  Josette is relieved to hear this.  But
        Natalie continues to read, "After Barnabas' departure, the marriage
        between Jeremiah and Josette suffered..." She abruptly stops reading
        and slams the book shut, saying, "The book is wrong!"  Josette,
        knowing what the next part must be, embraces Natalie and cries,
        "Help me, Aunt Natalie! I don't know what to do!"
           Joshua is at Barnabas' bedside, watching sadly. Barnabas
        tells him to try to be strong, reminding him, "Father, remember
        during the war when they carried you into the house, you did not
        even recognize me.  But I did not cry because I knew you would
        be angry if I did..." He becomes delirious again and cries, "The
        bat!  The bat is in this room!"  Joshua tells him, "There is no
        bat in this room", but Barnabas, delirious, insists,  "The bat is
        in this room!  The bat is coming for me!  Help me!  Josette!  It's
        the bat, coming for me, AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"  Joshua tells him,
        "Barnabas, Josette's here. But you should not see her right now.
        Wait till you get stronger", but Barnabas says,  "I must see her!
        Seeing her will give me strength!  Where is Angelique?"  Joshua
        replies, "Downstairs".  Barnabas exclaims, "Keep her away from me!"
        Joshua promises, "I will, son".  Barnabas demands, "Now, Josette!"
           Joshua lets Josette in and leaves, saying, "I will wait outside".
        Josette tells Barnabas, "You are getting better!" Barnabas replies,
        "Because I see you".  Josette says, "If that's what it takes to
        make you better. You will get better, you know! That's what the
        future holds".  Barnabas asks, "The tarot cards?"  Josette lies,
        "Yes. Aunt Natalie saw in the tarot cards that you will live in
        England and be very prosperous and happy!"  Barnabas starts to
        become delirious again and cries, "The bat!  Get it out of here!"
        Josette promises, "I will".  Barnabas tells her, "I love you still.
        I never stopped, no matter how hard I tried.  I will come back. Do
        you believe me?"  Josette replies, "Yes".  Barnabas asks, "Will you
        wait?"  Josette promises, "Yes, I promise. Listen to me, don't leave
        here or I'll have no one. I love you", but Barnabas dies...
        Josette shouts out, "Mr. Collins!!!!!"
           Natalie and Naomi are in the living room downstairs.  There's
        a squeaking noise.  Naomi remarks, "I hear something!"  Natalie
        shouts, "It's a bat!"  A large bat flutters around the room
        then vanishes.  Joshua comes walking down the stairs very slowly.
        Naomi runs up to him and, seeing the expression on his face,
        asks, "Barnabas? Is he dead?" Joshua nods sadly. Naomi cries,
        "Barnabas is dead!" and embraces Joshua.
           Josette regains consciousness in bed, and puzzled, asks, "What
        am I doing here?"  Natalie tells her, "We brought you here"
        Remembering what happened, Josette exclaims, "Oh! He's dead!
        He's gone!  What am I going to do?  What?"  Natalie tells her,
        "When you're feeling better, I'll take you to the new house.
        We'll make plans there. After that, it will get better", but Josette
        cries, "No, I love him! I love him! I do!  I love him!  I loved him
        the very first time I saw him!  He can't be dead!  He can't be!"
        Natalie tells her, "He is. The book is wrong. It's nothing
        but a vicious joke".  Josette replies,  "I don't care what it
        says about me, but I had hoped Barnabas would get well and go
        to England".  Natalie reiterates, "The book is wrong".  Josette
        tells Natalie, "I must see Mrs Collins..."
           Naomi is in the living room alone.  Joshua, who had gone out,
        returns.  Naomi asks, "Have you sent for the Reverend Taylor?"
        Joshua replies, "No".  Naomi asks, "Why not?"  Joshua replies, "I
        don't think tonight is the time to discuss this.  I will stay here
        tonight.  You will go to the new house with Natalie and Josette.
        I will take care of everything tonight".  Naomi asks, "What do you
        mean?" and insists he tell her.  He starts, "I had a decision to
        make.  I had to take into account my son's illness.  What would the
        people from the village think if they knew one of us had died from
        the plague?  You think they would come to work in the shipyards?
        No, they would run the other way!"  Josette and  Natalie come down.
        Joshua tells Naomi to take them to the new house, but Naomi refuses,
        saying, "I'm not leaving until I understand!"  Joshua tells her,
        "For various reasons, I have decided to keep our son's death a
        secret."  Natalie asks, "A secret? Why?"  Joshua replies, "I have
        my reasons.  Tonight I will spread the word that Barnabas left on
        a business trip to England".  Josette turns to Natalie and says,
        "England?!  The book! It's true!" and embraces Natalie...

           Angelique tries to argue Joshua out of his desire to bury
        Barnabas secretly, to no avail.  Joshua leaves.  Angelique calls
        out telepathically to Ben, "Ben! Wherever you are hiding, come
        to me! Come to me at once! I need you, more than I have ever
        needed you before! You must come to me, Ben, at once!"
           Natalie is sitting in the living room of the old house
        reading the family history.  She thinks to herself, "All my life
        I've played the Tarot cards to see the future, and now I see it
        in this book.  Published in Bangor, Maine, 1965.  But Bangor is
        in Massachusetts, and 1965 is 200 years away!  Can Miss Winter's
        story be true?  Could she really come from another time, or is
        this book a monstrous joke to frighten us away from here?"
        Josette comes into the room and remarks, "You keep reading that
        book..."  Natalie asks, "How's Mrs. Collins?"  Josette replies,
        "Asleep. For now"  Natalie remarks, "We should go to the new 
        house. You're exhausted".  Josette tells Natalie that she's glad 
        she stayed to talk to Naomi, to talk about Barnabas, saying, "We 
        will never forget him. Neither of us".  Natalie suggests, "It'll be
        easier once we get back to Martenique. We must leave immediately".
        Josette asks, "You do believe that book, don't you?"  Natalie
        replies, "There's no reason for us to stay now", but Josette tells
        her, "I must stay to settle Jeremiah's estate".  Natalie tells
        Josette, "You can let the barristers do that".  Josette asks, "You
        do believe that book, don't you?"  Natalie replies, "We should take
        no chances. We should pack immediately", but Josette refuses,
        "No. I promised him I would stay".  Natalie asks, "Who?"  Josette
        replies,"The one person and one person alone who could ask me to
        stay. Barnabas".  Natalie protests, "But he's dead!"  Josette
        tells her, "He promised to come back to me".  Natalie asks, "How?"
        Josette replies confidently, "He WILL come back to me!"
           The coffin bearing Barnabas is brought down the stairs by
        several workmen.  Josette cries, "No! No!"  Joshua tells the workmen,
        "Go on. I will follow you there shortly".  The workmen take the
        coffin out the door. Joshua remarks to Josette, "I thought you had
        gone".  Josette asks, "Where are you taking him?"  Joshua replies,
        "I'd like to tell you, but I can't. His death is to be a secret.
        Now go back to the new house".  Ben appears outside and peers in
        through the the window.  Josette begs Joshua,  "Tell me! I've got
        to know!" Suddenly, seeing Ben at the window, she shouts, "Who's
        that!?"  Joshua asks, "Who?"  Josette replies, "The face in the
        window!"  Joshua looks, but by this time Ben is gone.  He tells
        Josette, "There's no one there. You're upset. You must have
        imagined it. Let me see you to your carriage". Everyone leaves.
        Ben, who has apparently come in through the back door, comes out
        into the living room through the door to the left of the fireplace,
        thinking that everyone has left for awhile, not know that Joshua is
        only seeing the DuPres' to their carriage.  Joshua comes back in,
        sees Ben, and exclaims, "I might have known it was you!  Have you
        come to see Barnabas?  He is dead! My son will never intercede on
        your behalf again!"  Ben exclaims, "Barnabas, dead?!"  Joshua asks,
        "Come back to steal his valuables?"  Ben replies, "He was my friend.
        If you have any love for your son, let me grieve for him".
        Angelique, who has just come down the stairs, pipes in, "Yes.  We
        will let him!"  Joshua prepares to leave and asks, Angelique,
        "Will you be frightened to be here alone with him?"  Angelique
        replies, "You forget we were once servants together".  Joshua
        caustically remarks, "THAT I will never forget!" and leaves.
           Angelique tells Ben, "I need your help..."  Ben asks, "How can
        he be dead? I thought you loved him..."  Angelique replies, "It's
        because I love him that I do what I must! You must do three things
        for me. First, follow Mr. Collins and the workmen and tell me where
        they go..."   Noting that Angelique seems to be uncharacteristically
        frightened, Ben asks, "Are you scared?"  Angelique replies, "Yes",
        and continues, "Next, you must cut a holly stake. It must be
        10-12 inches long, thick enough to be hit with a hammer, and one
        end must be sharpened till it's needle sharp."  Ben asks, "Why?",
        but Angelique just replies,  "Do it!  Or we will all die when night
           Joshua returns to the old house. Angelique is alone there,
        Ben having left. Joshua offers Angelique $10,000 in gold to
        leave Collinsport forever. Angelique refuses, saying, "You
        offered me that much not to marry your son".  Joshua replies,
        "15,000, then", but Angelique still refuses.   Finally, Joshua
        says, "All, right, $20,000 in gold in promissory notes payable 
        to the bearer" and Angelique finally accepts.  She asks, "And all 
        I have to do is leave?" He takes out a legal document and tells her,
        "And sign this paper. It states that you will make no further 
        claims on the Collins family, and that you will never return to
        Collinsport as long as you live".  Angelique replies, "I will
        think about it. Leave the paper and the book of promissory notes".
        Joshua complains, "How do I know you won't take the book without
        signing the paper?"  Angelique replies, "You would trust Josette,
        wouldn't you? You must trust me! You must treat me as a lady!"
        Joshua exclaims, "I will not!", but Joshua replies, "You must! You
        have no choice!"  Joshua, looking defeated, leaves. Angelique takes
        the paper over to the bureau desk, takes a quill pen and signs the
           It is later. Ben has returned with the stake as instructed.
        He gives it to Angelique and asks, "Is this right?"  Angelique
        replies, "Yes. It will do."  Ben asks, "What for? That's what I
        want to know", but Angelique just tells him,  "I want you to go to
        the stables and return with a carriage by 6:00. That's nightfall,
        isn't it?"  Ben again asks, "What for? I want to know!", but
        Anglelique just tells him,  "I will tell you then.  Now go! We
        have little time!"
           Angelique is in her room packing frantically.  Ben returns and
        asks, "How did he die?"  Angelique replies, "I did not want him to
        die, Ben."  Ben asks, "How did it happen?"  Angelique replies, "He
        was bitten by a bat".  Ben accuses, "You did that!"  Angelique
        replies, "He shot me, Ben! He shot me! Did you tell him about me?
        Did you tell him?"  Ben replies, "I didn't say a word".  Angelique
        believes him, "You would have become mute if you had tried.
        Is it getting dark?"  Ben replies, "No, it's just the storm coming.
        What happens when it gets dark?"  Angelique replies, "He will come
        alive at nightfall.  This night and every night for all eternity.
        That was my curse.  He will do terrible things, and the only way
        to stop him is to drive this stake into his heart.  Why is it
        getting so dark? You must take me there quickly!"
           Ben takes Angelique to the tomb. He explains to Angelique,
        "Joshua built the secret room during the Revolutionary War to
        hide guns. Hard to think of him as a patriot, isn't it? I know
        about it because the first day I was here he had me clean it
        up".  He pulls the ring in the lion's mouth. The door opens and
        they go in. Inside, a coffin lies in the middle of the room.
        Some candle holders bear still burning candles.  Ben remarks,
        "I've never heard of anyone coming back from the dead before".
        Angelique asks, "Have you ever heard the word 'vampire', Ben?
        Open the coffin, Ben".  Ben refuses, "No".  Angelique, desperation
        in her voice, exclaims, "Hurry, Ben! He'll come back to life!"
        Ben shouts, "If he comes back to life, he'll settle you, then!!",
        runs out the door, and closes it, locking Angelique inside.
        Angelique, with some difficulty, manages to open the heavy coffin
        lid. She takes the stake, places it above Barnabas' heart, raises
        the hammer, and prepares to strike...

           Ben, who had run out of the tomb, changes his mind, goes back
        in and puts his ear to the wall and listens.
           Inside, Angelique opens the coffin, puts the stake over Barnabas'
        heart and prepares to strike.  Suddenly, Barnabas opens his eyes,
        sees Angelique, and grabs her throat. Angelique cries, "AH!" and drops
        the hammer. Barnabas lets Angelique go and gets out of the coffin.
        Angelique cowers by the wall. Barnabas demands to know, "What
        were you trying to do to me?" Angelique begs, "Please let me go!"
        Barnabas asks, "Where are we?"  Angelique does not answer.  Barnabas
        demands, "I asked you were we were!" Outside, Ben hears Barnabas'
        voice and gasps, "He's speaking! He's come back to life!" Inside,
        Barnabas again demands, "I asked you where we were!"  Angelique
        replies, "In the Collins family mausoleum".  Barnabas asks, "The 
        Collins mausoleum?  What are we doing here? What was I doing in 
        the coffin?"  Angelique replies, "Let's go back to the old house. 
        I'll tell you when we get back to the old house", but Barnabas says,
        "NO! You will tell me here!"  Angelique again remains silent. 
        Barnabas thinks and says, "Perhaps you don't have to tell me.  
        The fever...I was afraid I was going to die... I was in that coffin
        because I was dead, wasn't I?"  Angelique replies, "Yes".  Barnabas
        continues, "I have returned from the dead. Why? Tell me!"  Angelique
        exclaims, "I can't!", but Barnabas demands, "Tell me!"  Angelique just
        replies, "You will know soon enough".  Barnabas asks, "You have set a
        curse on me, haven't you?"  Angelique replies, "Yes"  Barnabas asks,
        "You tried to remove it, but you couldn't, and you tried to prevent
        me from returning.  Why?  What are you afraid of? Why are you 
        afraid of me?"  Angelique lies, "I am not", but Barnabas can see 
        that she is and continues, "I have never known you to be afraid of 
        anything. Why are you afraid of me now? Why?"  Angelique again
        denies that she is.  Barnabas asks, "What of your curse. Tell me!" 
        Angelique replies, "You have become one of the living dead, but one 
        who can only live at night. Each dawn, you must come back to your 
        coffin."  Barnabas asks, "And what about that other part, that 
        everyone who loves me will die? Is that why you came to destroy me? 
        You always said you loved me."  Angelique replies, "I do!".  Barnabas
        tells her, "Then according to the curse, YOU MUST DIE!" He grabs her
        by the throat and strangles her.
           Angelique is lying dead on the floor. He eyes are wide open
        but unseeing. Barnabas looks around and says, "This room. I know
        it. Yes..."  He pulls back the leftmost stone on the second step,
        reaches inside, and twists the knob. The secret door opens.
        Barnabas exits the secret room to find Ben outside and exclaims,
        "Ben!" Ben exclaims, "Barnabas! Is it really you?"  Barnabas asks,
        "What are you doing here?"  Ben replies, "I didn't want to help
        her! She made me do it!"  Barnabas asks, "Angelique? She can't hear
        you. She's dead"  Ben asks, "You killed her?"  Barnabas replies,
        "Yes".  Ben remarks, "I never thought anyone could kill her".
        Barnabas notes, "She brought you here.  You must know what she
        was planning to do". Ben explains, saying, "She said the only way
        to make you stay dead was to drive a stake through you heart".
        Barnabas remarks, "She got here a little too late for that",
        then tells Ben, "I'm afraid your presence here presents a little
        problem for me. There has been a slight change in me. I am no
        longer a human being. The world thinks I'm dead. No one must know
        otherwise. I'm afraid I'm going to have to kill you."  Ben begs,
        "I promise not to tell! I've always been loyal! If what Angelique
        said is true, you'll need someone to help you, to make sure no
        one finds you during the day".  Barnabas replies, "Very well, Ben.
        I will let you help me. You must begin at once. Go get Angelique.
        We must bury her somewhere".  Ben suggets, "In the woods."  Barnabas
        suddenly says, "I hear someone outside!  Listen!"
           Outside in the cemetary, Joshua is walking towards the
        mausoleum. Inside, Barnabas opens the secret door, goes back
        inside, and close the door, leaving Ben outside. Joshua comes
        into the mausoleum, sees Ben there and exclaims, "Stokes!  What
        is the meaning of this? What are you doing in this place?
        Up to something?  What is it?"  Ben replies, "I was paying my 
        last respects."  Joshua asks, "How did you know my son was buried 
        here?"  Ben lies, "I saw some workmen coming out of the house..." 
        Joshua asks, "You followed them?"  Ben replies, "Yes".  Joshua
        angrily announces, "You will be thrashed for this!"  Ben promises,
        "I promise never to tell anyone".  Joshua remarks, "You mean 
        besides the person you've already told.  Who is it?  What are you 
        planning?  Grave robbery?"  Ben replies, "I've told no one", but
        Joshua says, "Don't lie to me, Stokes!  I heard you talking to 
        someone".  Ben lies, "I was saying a prayer".  Joshua says, 
        "You've never said a prayer in your life!"  Ben asks, "If I had 
        been talking to someone, where did he go?  You would've seen him 
        coming out on your way in."  Joshua points at the secret door and
        says, "Or he could be in that room".  Joshua pulls on the ring.
        The door opens.  A bat flies out.  Joshua tries to hit it with his
        walking stick, but misses, and the bat flies off.  Joshua remarks,
        "I wonder what other surprises await me in there", and looks in,
        but sees nothing but the coffin in the room.  He is surprised.  Ben
        is even more surprised.  Joshua tells Ben, "You will close the door
        and come with me".  Ben asks, "Could I stay here a little longer?"
        Joshua asks, "What for?"  Ben replies, "To pay my respects to
        Barnabas".  Joshua says, "But you've already done that", but
        Ben says, "He was good to me.  I'd like to stay here and offer 
        him another prayer".  Joshua replies, "Very well. You will report 
        to me in the morning.  You are no longer needed at the old house. 
        I have new duties for you" and leaves.  Ben goes into the secret 
        room, looks around and finds nothing.  He then opens the coffin 
        and finds not Barnabas but Angelique lying in there, quite dead.
           Later, Ben is walking back towards the mausoleum from the woods.
        Barnabas suddenly materializes in front of him.  Ben exclaims, "Mr.
        Barnabas!" Barnabas asks, "Where are you going, Ben?"  Ben replies,
        "Back to the mausoleum. Where did you come from?"  Barnabas replies,
        "In my new life, I've found I have some new and rather remarkable
        powers."  Ben asks, "What kind of powers?"  Barnabas replies,
        "You'll find out soon enough.  Where have you been?"  Ben replies,
        "In the woods digging a grave for Angelique".   Barnabas notes,
        "It will be daylight soon. We must go inside the mausoleum".
        They do so. Once inside, Ben notices that there is blood dripping
        from the corners of Barnabas' mouth and exclaims, "Blood! Have
        you been hurt?"  Barnabas replies, "No".  Ben points out, "But
        there's blood on your mouth! What happened to you?"  Barnabas
        replies, "To me, nothing, but to some unfortunate villager. I've
        learned something else about my new existence tonight. I cannot
        survive without blood.  Without other people's blood. You will hear
        talk about an attack on a villager tomorrow.  From the marks on the
        throat, they will think it was a wild animal. But I'm the guilty
        one".  Ben asks, "Why?"  Barnabas moans, "Because I have the
        need for blood! When I awoke tonight and saw Angelique standing
        over me with a stake over my heart, I should have let her kill
        me!  I would rather be dead than go through eternity as what
        I have become, doing what I did..."

           Natalie is in the drawing room at Collinwood.  She sees
        Josette come down into the foyer dressed to go out, goes into
        the foyer and asks, "Josette! Where are you going?"  Josette
        replies, "There's something I must attend to in the village".
        Natalie asks, "What is so important?"  Josette replies, "I must
        see Miss Winters in gaol".  Natalie asks,"Why?"  Josette replies,
        "I want her to know that I will personally see to it that she will
        never be free! I begged her to save Barnabas, but she refused.
        Now I will not rest until I see her hanged as a witch!"
           Josette is at the Collinsport Gaol.  Vicky is brought out.
        She exclaims, "Mrs. Collins!"  Josette remarks, "You look surprised
        to see me".  Vicky replies, "I am".  Josette tells Vicky, "You made
        a most serious mistake when you rejected my pleas last week".
        Vicky asks, "I thought you were taking my advice and leaving
        Collinsport".  Josette asks, "You expected me to leave with
        Barnabas in such serious condition?"  Vicky asks, "Is he better?"
        Josette asks,"How could you ask such a question?  Why are you
        pretending you don't know he's dead?"  Vicky exclaims, "Dead?! But 
        the family history said he went to England!"  Josette says, "That's 
        what you wrote in your book of deception!  You had it in your power 
        to save him.  I begged you to save him, but you wouldn't! I am going 
        to testify at your trial. I am going to bring that book with me and
        use it as evidence against you! That book will convict you and send
        you to the gallows!"  Vicky exclaims, "You can't do that!", but
        Josette replies, "Miss Winters, you took away the one person in
        the world I care about. I'm going to personally see to it that you
        are punsished for that".  Vicky begs, "But you must go! The book
        says you're in danger..."  Josette replies, "Yes. It says I will
        die by my own hand.  Perhaps that's the way I want it.  My life is
        meaningless now without Barnabas. But I will not die until I see
        you hanged as a witch!" and leaves.  Vicky asks Peter Bradford,
        the young jailer who gave her back her locket who's been in the room
        the whole time, "Still want to defend me now?"  Peter replies, "Yes".
        Vicky asks, "Even after you heard what she said?  If she introduces
        that book as evidence, I'll have no chance. The only way I stand a
        chance is if I can get that book.  I've got to find it and I've got
        to find it tonight!" Peter asks, "How are you going to do that?"
        Vicky replies, "You've got to let me out so I can go to Collinwood!
        As soon as I get the book, I promise to come back!", but Peter tells
        her, "No, I can't do that!"  Vicky asks, "Do you doubt my word?"
        Peter replies, "No, it's not your word I'm concerned about. It's
        your safety.  In the last two nights, there have been two savage
        attacks on women from the village."  Vicky points out, "If I don't
        get the book, my safety won't be worth much".  Peter finally agrees,
        "All right, I'm going to let you go to Collinwood, but you're not
        going alone!"
           Natalie is in the drawing room of Collinwood with Josette, who
        has returned. There is a knock at the door of Collinwood. Natalie
        answers.  It is Trask.  Trask announces, "I have just attended an
        emergency meeting at the village this evening. They are most 
        concerned in the village about the savage attacks that have 
        taken place the last two night.  The villagers thought they were
        animal attacks, but I managed to change their minds that as long
        as the witch were alive the attacks will continue". Josette asks,
        "You think the witch is responsible for the attacks?"  Trask replies,
        "Yes. I urged the elders to advance the date of the trial, that the 
        sooner the witch is hanged, the sooner the attacks will stop".
        Natalie asks, "Did they?"  Trask replies, "No, they only agreed 
        to deliberate the matter".  Natalie tells him, "I think we can help 
        you to convince them to advance it. My niece has decided to stay 
        and testify, and to present a piece of evidence that proves beyond 
        the shadow of a doubt that Miss Winters is guilty!"
           Meanwhile, Vicky has snuck into Collinwood and is upstairs
        in Josette's room (the same room that will be hers in 1966)
        searching for the book.
           Trask asks Josette, "How did you come by this book?"  Josette
        replies, "Miss Winters told me where to find it last week when I 
        visited her at the gaol".  Trask asks, "Why did you go to the 
        gaol?"  Josette replies, "To ask hrr to save Barnabas' life, but
        she seemed more concerned about my life than his.  She told me to
        leave Collinsport or die".  Trask exclaims, "So she threatened your
        life!"  Josette replies "She told me to look in the book, that it
        foretold my death".  Trask asks, "And Barnabas'?"  Josette replies,
        "For some reason, it was wrong on that point".  Trask asks, "Is
        the book in Miss Winters' hand?"  Josette replies, "No, it's
        printed".  Trask tells her, "I'm very anxious to see that book".
        Josette says, "I'll get it", but Natalie stops her, "No, you
        rest here. I'll get it"
           In Josette's room, Vicky finally finds the book. Just as she
        does so, the door opens. It's Natalie. Natalie gasps, "AH!!!!"
        and goes back out into the hallway, closing the door behind
        her.  Terrified, she screams, "Reverend Trask!  Reverend Trask!
        Come quickly!" Trask and Josette come running upstairs.  Trask
        asks, "Countess, what is it?"  Natalie exclaims, "The witch! She
        was in the room when I went in!  She has the book!"  Trask prepares
        to go in.  Natalie warns him against it, but Trask confidently
        says, "I am not afraid of the witch!  It is she who is afraid of
        me!" He opens the door, goes in, and checks around.  There is no
        one in there.  He calls out, "It's all right.  You may come in now.
        There's no one in here".  The countess and Josette enter the room.
        Josette says, "Aunt Natalie. You must have imagined seeing her",
        but Natalie insists, "I saw her! She was in here!"  Josette asks,
        "Then how did she get out?"  Natalie replies, "What's more important
        is why she was here!" Josette exclaims, "The book!" and opens the
        drawer where she put the book.  She exclaims, "The book! It's gone!"
           Peter Bradford and Vicky return to the jail.   Peter asks, "Are
        you sure the Countess saw you?"  Vicky replies, "Positive".  Peter
        says, "But you said they were outside the door. How did you get
        out?"  Vicky replies, "I know that house inside and out.  There's
        a secret panel in that room".  Peter tells Vicky, "We'd better do
        something about this book.  Now that they know you have it, they're
        going to come looking for it. I'll put it somewhere where they won't
        find it".  There's a knock at the door.  Peter quickly takes Vicky
        back to her cell, then returns and puts the book inside the
        writing stand, then opens the door.  Trask, Josette and Natalie
        come in. Trask asks, "What took you so long to open the door?"
        Peter lies, "I'd fallen asleep".  Trask tells him, "While you
        were sleeping, the witch has escaped!"  Trask explains what
        happened.  Peter announces, "Impossible. I happen to know Miss
        Winters is in her cell right now".  Trask asks, "How would you
        know that? You said you had fallen asleep".  Peter replies, "I only
        dozed off for a few minutes.  Besides, the cell is securely locked.
        She couldn't have gotten out".  Trask remarks,  "I see you don't
        know the powers of witchcraft".  Peter replies, "I don't believe
        in witchcraft".  Trask remarks, "We'll convince you otherwise soon".
        He demands to see if Vicky is in her cell.  Peter opens the door to
        the cellblock and lets him in.
           A few minutes later, Trask returns and announces, "She's in her
        cell asleep".  Peter remarks, "Just like I said".  Josette asks
        Trask, "Are you going to try to get the book back?"  Trask replies,
        "No. I assume she has it where we can't get it.  But we no longer
        need it".  Josette protests, "But that book was important evidence!"
        Trask replies, "We have more important evidence now.  Mr. Bradford,
        are you willing to testify to it that Miss Winters was here all
        night tonight?"  Peter replies, "If necessary, yes".  Trask says,
        "Good. Because we three are going to testify that she was at
        Collinwood.  Only an act of witchcraft could enable a person to
        be in two places at once!  I'm confident now that there will be
        an earlier trial, a conviction, and an excution by hanging!  Good
        night, Mr. Bradford!"

           Later at the jail, Vicky asks Peter, "Peter, is something wrong?" 
        Peter replies, "There will be if I don't act quickly. I'm going to 
        go find Reverend Trask and tell him I let you out last night". He 
        explains why, but Vicky tells  him, "Peter, I can't let you
        go through with that!"  Peter tells her, "It's my decision", but
        Vicky says, "It'll cause trouble for you".  Peter tells her, "What 
        happens to me is not as important as what will happen to you if 
        you're convicted".  Vicky begs, "Please! Don't go through with
        this!" Peter asks, "Why are you so concerned about what happens 
        to me?  Your life is at stake, not mine".  Vicky replies, "You're 
        the only person who's shown any concern for me. I don't want to see 
        anything happen to you".  Peter asks, "You really care what happens
        to me?" Vicky replies, "Yes".  Peter asks, "Why?"  Vicky replies, 
        "Because you're a very special person. When I found myself 
        transported, I was frightened and miserable, till I met you. 
        Thank you for everything you've done". She kisses him on the cheek. 
        Peter remarks, "I guess you are from somewhere else. Women
        around here don't do that".  Vicky apologizes, "Sorry", but Peter
        tells her, "I didn't say I minded".  He take the book out and tells 
        Vicky, "I've been reading this most of the night. It's hard to 
        believe".  He puts the book on the stand on leafs through it. 
        Suddenly, Vicky asks, "What date is it?"  Peter replies, "The 24th, 
        why?"  VIcky replies, "In two days, Sarah Collins will have
        her 11th birthday.  According to the book, Sarah Collins will
        die on her 11th birthday!"  She finds the passage on Sarah's
        death and reads it aloud, "On her 11th birthday, Sarah Collins,
        daughter of Joshua and Naomi Collins, died of a fever contracted
        through exposure".  She exclaims, "Peter! We've got to do 
        something!"  Peter asks, "What?"  Vicky replies, "The book
        says she contracted the fever through exposure. Peter, please, go
        to Collinwood and tell Mrs. Collins I want to see her."  Peter asks,
        "What do you want to tell her?"  Vicky replies, "I want to warn her. 
        If she refuses to come, tell her it's a matter of life and death!"
           At the foot of the stairs in the foyer at Collinwood, Sarah asks 
        Naomi, "Mother, do you know where Josette is?"  Naomi replies, 
        "She's gone to Bangor".  Sarah asks, "When will she be back?"  Naomi
        replies, "Sometime this evening, but you'll be in bed by then".
        Sarah holds up something wrapped in a cloth and remarks, "Then I'll
        have to leave this in her room".  Naomi asks, "What is it?"  Sarah
        replies, "Josette's been so sad lately, I made her a present".
        Naomi asks, "What kind of present?"  Sarah replies, "Open it and
        see". Naomi unwraps the bundle and remarks, "It's a candle".
        Sarah explains, "Riggs taught me how to make it and told me
        Josette would like it. He told me if someone you love has gone
        away, if you put a candle in the window of your room, they'll
        come back. I think Josette still loves Barnabas".  Naomi says,
        "I think so too".  Sarah says, "I miss Barnabas. I want him to come
        home", but Naomi tells her, "Barnabas has gone away for a long time.
        He might not come back until you're grown up".  Sarah tells her,
        "I don't want to wait that long. I'll put the candle in Josette's
        room and Barnabas'll come back to us. You'll see!"
           The sun is about to set. Ben is waiting in the mausoleum.
        The sun sets. Inside the secret room, Barnabas awakens and comes
        out of the coffin. He opens the secret door and exits into
        the mausoleum.  Ben tells him, "Barnabas, I've got to talk to you".
        Barnabas asks, "What do you want to talk to me about?"  Ben asks,
        "Are you going into the village tonight?"  Barnabas asks, "Why?"
        Ben replies, "I wouldn't if I were you. Everyone's worked up about
        the things that have been going on there. If you keep taking
        chances, you'll be caught sooner or later".  Barnabas protests,
        "It's not as if I had a choice, Ben".  Ben asks, "Couldn't you
        stay here for a few nights?"  Barnabas replies, "I'm not going
        into the village tonights. I have other plans".  Ben asks,
        "What other plans?"  Barnabas replies, "I promised Josette I
        would come back to her and see her again. I'm going to fufill
        my promise"  Ben exclaims, "Tonight?!  It'll be a mighty shock
        to her!", but Barnabas says, "If I know Josette, she'll be
        expecting me".  Ben points out, "Telling her you'll come back
        and actually coming back from the dead are two different things!".
        Barnabas replies, "Perhaps you're right. Perhaps I should prepare
        her first.  Yes, that's it.  I will go to her room tonight and
        leave something to let her know my return is imminent".
           Peter has brought Naomi to the Collinsport Gaol. Vicky tells
        her, "I'm glad you came".  Naomi tells Vicky, "This young man
        said it was important".  Vicky offers her condolences on Barnabas'
        death.  Naomi asks, "How did you know?"  Vicky replies, "Josette
        told me".  Naomi says, "She shouldn't have. Joshua wanted to
        keep it a secret.  He's told everyone that Barnabas has gone to
        England".  Vicky exclaims, "Then that's why it says that in the
        Collins family history!"  Naomi asks, "What are you talking about?"
        Vicky replies, "Never mind. Sarah is in very serious danger. In 2
        days, it'll be her 11th birthday.  You must not let her out of the
        house until after her birthday has passed. If you do, she will die.
        When I came here, I had a book with me. It told the future of the
        Collins family".  Naomi exclaims, "I don't believe it!  What they
        say about you could be true!"  Vicky begs, "Please, please trust
        me and do as I say!"  Naomi points out, "But you said the book also
        predicted that Barnabas would go to England".  Vicky replies, "The
        books contains history as people wanted it to be written.  What
        harm would it do to keep Sarah indoors for a few days?"  Naomi
        replies, "All right, I'll keep her indoors for a few days".  Vicky
        says, "You won't regret this! I promise you! Believe me!"  Naomi
        replies, "That's the strange part.  I do believe you, and I don't
        know why"
           Sarah goes to Josette's room and puts her candle in the window.
        Just as she is about to light it, see looks outside and sees
        Barnabas looking up at the window and exclaims, "It's Barnabas!
        Riggs is right!  He's come back to us!  Barnabas!"  Barnabas,
        seeing Sarah, hides behind some trees.  Sarah looks again but does
        not see Barnabas and says, "It had to be Barnabas! I saw him! I've
        got to find out!" She runs off. Barnabas comes out of hiding and
        looks up at the window again.  Sarah runs outside and sees him.
        She exclaims, "It IS Barnabas!"  Barnabas says to himself, "Sarah!
        No, Sarah! You must not see me!" and flees.  Sarah gives chase,
        shouting, "Barnabas! Why are you running away? We want you to come
        back! Plase come back!"
           Peter has taken Vicky back to her cell and has returned to the
        visiting room.  Naomi asks him, "Mr. Bradford, you heard everything
        Miss Winters said to me tonight. Do you think it's possible?"  Peter
        replies, "I know what she said about the book is true. I've seen it".
        Naomi asks, "You've seen it? What does it say about Sarah?"  Peter
        replies, "Exactly what Miss Winters said".  Naomi exclaims, "Then
        I must get back to Collinwood before anything happens to Sarah!"
           Sarah is wandering through Eagle Hill Cemetary, calling out,
        "Barnabas, where did you go? I saw you come into the cemetary!"
        She walks up the the Collins mausoleum and shouts into it, "Are
        you in there?  Barnabas!  If you are, answer me! It's so cold, and
        I'm scared!!"  She goes inside and shouts, "Barnabas! I've come to
        find you!  Barnabas!  Barnabas!"

           Sarah continues to call, "Barnabas!  Don't you hide!  Barnabas!
        Why don't you let me catch you?  Please, if you're in here, tell
        me!"  Suddenly, the gate slams shut all by itself.  Sarah tries
        to open it but doesn't seem to know how.
           Nathan and Millicent come back inside Collinwood. Millicent
        exclaims, "Thank you very much! I enjoyed watching that eclipse
        of the moon very much!" She notes that it's late and tells him
        good night, but instead, Nathan closes the drawing room doors.
        Millicent is frightened of being found in the drawing room alone
        with Nathan with the doors closed. Nathan remarks, "You could be
        more modern in your approach to life.  I expect will expect you to
        be after we're married. Will you marry me?"  Millicent replies,
        "I didn't know your intentions were so honorable!" and accepts.
        Nathan tells her he's thinking of leaving the Navy after they're
        married, but warns her it might take him some time to find a
        suitable job.  Millicent is still worried about being found alone
        in the closed drawing room with him. In particular, she is worried
        about Joshua finding them. Nathan reminds her, "Joshua's away in
        Portsmouth". The doors open and Naomi comes in.  Millicent quickly
        explains, "We just got back from viewing the eclipse".  Naomi asks,
        "Was Sarah with you?"  Milliecent replies, "No"  Naomi tells them,
        "I've looked everywhere for her! Upstairs... She's gone! She's gone!"
           At the Collins mausoleum, Sarah continues to shake the gate
        and shout, "Let me out! Let me out!"
           Naomi explains, "I had to go into town, and when I came back,
        Sarah was gone!  Her bed's been turned down, but no one's in it."
        Millicent asks, "Are you sure she isn't somewhere in the house?"
        Naomi replies, "Riggs has even checked the basement".  Nathan
        volunteers to search for her, "I'll take Ben and Riggs. We'll find
        her. Don't worry!" and leaves. Millicent gushes, "He's so masterful!"
        Naomi moans, "These terrible things keep happening to us! When are
        they going to stop?  If only Miss Winters..."  Millicent remarks,
        "The witch?", but Naomi replies, "She's not the witch. Witches don't
        warn people".  Millicent asks, "You saw her tonight?"  Naomi replies,
        "Yes".  Millicent asks, "And she warned you?"  Naomi replies, "Yes" 
        Millicent asks, "About Sarah?" Naomi recounts to Millicent Vicky's
        warning that Sarah is to die on her 11th birthday.  Millicent
        remarks, "Miss Winters is very, very cruel!" but Naomi tells her,
        "Miss Winters told me so I could stop it from happening".  Millicent
        asks, "Stop what?"  Naomi says, "Sarah's death". Millicent tells her,
        "You mustn't believe her!"  Naomi says, "When I got back and found
        Sarah gone, I got the feeling that Miss Winters knows the future
        and is trying to warn us", but Millicent is not so sure.  She tells
        Naomi that she thinks it's a ruse, that she herself cast a spell to
        make something happen to Sarah, and pretended to "warn" Naomi
        beforehand to win her favor and perhaps her help.
          In the mausoleum, Sarah cries, "Barnabas! Barnabas! Please find
        me!". She then slumps dejectedly against the  wall and says,
        "Barnabas! Why don't you find me?"
          Barnabas is walking along the docks. He runs into a woman there.
        The woman is at first frightened, but then sees who it is and
        says, "Why it's Mr. Collins!"  Barnabas asks, "Do you know me?"
        The woman replies, "I've seen you.  What a fright you gave me!
        You scared me half to death!  Well, if it isn't Mr. Barnabas Collins
        himself. I heard you'd gone to England".  Barnabas remarks,
        "England? Well, you can see that isn't true."  The woman asks, "What
        are you doing here?"  Barnabas replies, "Taking a walk".  The woman
        asks, "Mind if I walk with you? It's no fun walking alone.  Wait
        till the girls at the Eagle hear about this! My name is Ruby Tate.
        Ever heard of me?"  Barnabas replies, "No".  Ruby says, "Then
        your one of the few people in the village who hasn't.  Do you know
        that Reverend, the one that looks like a duck".  Barnabas asks,
        "Reverend Bland?"  Ruby replies, "Yes. He wrote a whole sermon on
        me once". She notices that Barnabas is staring at her and asks, "Is
        something wrong? You're looking at me so funny like..."  Barnabas
        replies, "It's just that you're so pretty".  Ruby gushes, "Wait till
        the girls hear you said that!", but Barnabas tells her, "You mustn't
        say you saw me".  Ruby asks, "Why are you staring at me?"  Barnabas
        replies, "I must be going".  Ruby begs, "No, please stay", but
        Barnabas replies, "It's late".  Ruby points out, "That means no
        one will be bothering us.  You don't really want to go, do you?"
        Barnabas replies, "No".  Ruby says, "Then don't".  Barnabas opens
        his mouth and prepares to bite.  Ruby Tate screams, "No!!! You're
        the one!!!"
           Nathan is searching for Sarah. He is surprised to run into
        Millicent, who's also looking for Sarah.  Millicent explains that
        Naomi insisted on coming out and searching for Sarah, but she
        convinced her to go back inside and let her search instead.
        She points over at Eagle Hill cemetary and asks, "Have you searched
        over there?"  Nathan replies, "No, that's the graveyard. A child
        would be terrified of a graveyard.  I'm sure she didn't go in there".
        Millicent suggests, "The woods, then"
           Barnabas returns to the graveyard.  He pauses at Jeremiah's
        grave, where he remarks, "Jeremiah! Jeremiah, how we used to laugh
        at the idiocy of others. But what idiots we both have been.  One
        woman killed us both and left us as we are.  At least you are at
        rest. I am not. How can I do the things I do?  Is eternity to be
        like this? Is there no escape to this?"  He lets out a long moan
        of despair,  AHHHHHHH!"      
           From the woods, Nathan and Millicent hear Barnabas' moan.
        Millicent asks, "What's that?"  Nathan suggests, "A dog?", but 
        Millicent says, "No, it sounded almost human!"
           Barnabas enters the mausoleum.  Sarah asks, "Who's there?"
        Barnabas exclaims, "Sarah?!"  Sarah tells him, "Barnabas! I've 
        been waiting and waiting!"  Barnabas tells her, "You should
        be home".  Sarah begs, "Take me home! Please carry me home! I'm 
        so sleepy!", but Barnabas replies, "I cannot. You must not say 
        you saw me." She sees the blood dripping from the corners of his 
        mouth, screams, "No!!!" and runs out of the mausoleum, terrified.
        Barnabas moans, "Oh, no!".  The cock crows.

           Naomi is pacing around nervously in the drawing room of Collinwood.
        The sound of the front doors opening is heard. Millicent comes into
        the drawing room.  Naomi asks, "Found her?"  Millicent replies,"No".
        Naomi asks, "I don't understand.  How could Sarah get lost on our 
        own property? She knows every inch of it".  Millicent suggests that
        maybe Vicky put a spell on Sarah.  They again argue about whether 
        Vicky is a witch or not, Millicent insisting she is, Naomi insisting 
        she isn't.  Millicent apoligizes to Naomi for arguing with her at 
        a time like this, saying, "I have a habit of speaking my mind", and 
        tries to reassure her that Sarah will be all right.
           Barnabas is searching for Sarah, calling out, "Sarah! I didn't 
        mean to frighten you!  I'll take you home!"  He hears a voice 
        calling, "Sarah! Sarah Collins!"  A figure comes out of the shadows.
        Barnabas sees who it is and exclaims, "Ben!" Ben asks, "Barnabas! 
        What are you doing here?"  Barnabas replies, "Looking for her too".
        Ben tells him, "You shouldn't be here. One of the others might run 
        into you". Barnabas replies, "It's my fault Sarah's lost!". He 
        explains what happened, how Sarah had seen him when he was looking 
        up at the window of Josette's room and ran out to find him.  Ben
        asks, "Where did you go?  Did she follow you to the mausoleum?" 
        Barnabas replies, "I don't know. I went there but didn't go in. 
        I went into the village instead. Ben, don't look at me like that. 
        What happened to me is not my fault".  Ben replies, "I know.  It's 
        near dawn. You'd better go back."  Barnabas responds, "I know.
        How well my wife knew me to put such a curse on me to force me
        to exist at night!  What a mockery of an existence!" Ben tells
        him he'd better go back to the mausoleum, promising to continue 
        searching for Sarah.
           Sarah is hiding behind Jeremiah's tombstone. Barnabas, on
        is way to the mausoleum, passes right by her but doesn't see
           Ben finds Sarah and says, "Sarah! It's me, Ben! Glad to see 
        you! Your mother is going to be so happy!  You're not frightened 
        of Ben, are you?  Remember that doll I whittled you? Want another 
        one? Tell me what's wrong!", but Sarah doesn't answer.  Ben tells
        her, "I'll take you home.  Everything'll be all right!"  The storm 
        breaks and it starts raining heavily.
           In the drawing room at Collinwood, Naomi looks out the window
        and notices it's raining.  She asks, "It's raining. How long has 
        it been raining?" Millicent tells her, "About an hour." She notices
        that Naomi is staring intently at something and asks, "What is it?"
        Naomi replies, "Ben, and he's carrying Sarah! Let her be all right!
        Please! Let her be all right!"
           Ben comes in carrying Sarah. He exclaims, "Better get a doctor
        for her, quickly!"
           It is the next day. Sarah lies in bed very ill. Naomi remarks,
        "If she could only speak..."  Millicent, trying to sound
        optimistic, remarks, "She looks less feverish.  Has the medicine
        helped?  I think it has!  It looks like she's breathing easier to
        me!  Sarah, you are feeling better, aren't you?", but Sarah doesn't
        answer.  But Naomi is not fooled and says, "I nursed Joshua and
        Barnabas through their illnesses last year, and they were nothing
        like this.  She has pneumonia, I know it. The doctor knows it too,
        he was just too kind to tell me."  Ben comes in and asks, "How is
        she?".  Sarah smiles. Naomi tells Ben, "Ben, she's trying to thank
        you for saving her".  Sarah moves her lips, apparently trying to
        talk, but is unable to.  Naomi asks, "What's she trying to say?"
        Millicent gets a bright idea, "She can write it!". She leaves and
        returns with a slate and a piece of chalk.  Sarah writes, "BARNABAS".
        Millicent tells her, "But he's away, cousin Sarah. But he'll be
        back".  Sarah reacts to this with fear.  Naomi says, "She's afraid!
        What is she afraid of?  Sarah, you mustn't be afraid! You mustn't!"
        Sarah loses conciousness.
           The sun sets.  Barnabas awakens and exits the secret room out
        into the tomb.  He calls, "Ben? Ben, come! I must know about Sarah!
        I must know! Ben!"
           Ben is in Sarah's room watching over Sarah with Naomi and
        Millicent. He hears dogs howling, Barnabas calling him, and says,
        "I beg your pardon, I have something I must do...", but Naomi
        tells him to stay.  Ben mutters, "I guess it can wait. It'll have
        to".  Naomi remarks, "Strange Sarah should connect you with
        Barnabas".  Ben replies, "We were good friends.  Mr. Barnabas was
        very kind to me".  Naomi asks, "I wonder why Sarah should be afraid
        when Millicent said Barnabas would be back."  Ben suggess, "A
        nightmare, perhaps".  Naomi replies, "Yes, it must've been. She 
        loved Barnabas.  She would never be afraid of her own brother" 
           In the tomb, Barnabas wonders, "Where is he? I can't wait
        here not knowing!  Could I go to the house?  No, it would be too
           Ben finally manages to get away and comes to the mausoleum.
        Barnabas asks, "Ben! Where have you been? Is Sarah safe?"  Ben
        replies, "I found her in the graveyard, hiding behind Mr. Jeremiah's 
        tombstone".  Barnabas asks, "Is she all right?"  Ben replies, "The 
        storm.  We were caught in it..."  Barnabas asks, "Why are you
        telling me all this?  Is she all right?"  Ben replies, "She's very 
        ill".  Barnabas asks, "How is she?"  Ben replies, "The doctor said 
        the turning point would come at dusk.  He said she'd either get 
        better or..."  Barnabas moans, "She'll die, and it'll be my fault!" 
        Ben says, "No, it's the curse!"  Barnabas says, "I must see Sarah!",
        but Ben tells him, "Please don't! She can't speak.  She hasn't said 
        a word since I found her.  The doctor says there's no reason for it. 
        Except maybe fright..."  Barnabas insists, "I must see her! If she 
        sees me the way I was, perhaps she'll know not to be frightened".
        Ben says, "You'll need my help".  Barnabas replies, "Thank you, 
           In Sarah's room, Millicent tells Naomi to go have dinner,
        promising to look after Sarah while she's gone. Naomi tells her,
        "Come tell me if anything changes" and leaves.  Ben comes in
        and tells Millicent, "If there's anything you need to do, I'll
        watch over the child.  You and Mrs. Collins will be awake all
        night. It's only fair for us to take turns".  Millicent replies,
        "There IS a letter I have to write to my lawyers.  I know Sarah's
        fond of you.  I'll be right back" and leaves.  Ben tells Sarah,
        "Sarah, you're going to have a visitor.  Your brother.  He wants
        to know if you're all right".  He lets Barnabas into the room.
        Barnabas says, "Hello, Sarah".  Ben excuses himself, saying, "I'll
        be right outside", and leaves.  Barnabas tells Sarah, "Sarah,
        I'm sorry you were frightened of me. Very sorry, Sarah.  I want
        you to get better.  Promise me you'll get better.  Please, Sarah.
        Forgive me.  I love you".  Sarah finally manages to speak, "Hold
        me!"  Barnabas does.  Sarah says, "I love you, Barnabas.  I always
        will", and expires.   Barnabas moans, "Sarah, No! No!"

        drinking.  Joshua come in through the front door, returning
        from his business trip to Portsmouth.  Coming into the drawing
        room, he is irritated to see that Naomi is drinking so early
        in the morning and sarcastically remarks, "Well, I'm happy to
        see you up and busy at this early hour". Naomi remarks on a little
        bird she saw outside when the sun rose.  Joshua exclaims, "You mean
        to tell me you've been like this all night?! If I knew what I'd
        come home to, I would've stayed away!"  Naomi tells him, "There's
        something I must tell you."  Joshua replies, "I'm sure it can wait".
        Naomi replies, "Yes, it can wait. It can wait forever, because
        nothing can change it.  She's gone.  Sarah, our daughter, is dead".
        She tells Joshua what happened, then tells him, "I was so relieved
        when it happened".  Joshua asks, "How can you say that?"  Naomi
        replies, "She was suffering so".  Joshua exclaims, "I can't believe
        it!"  Naomi says, "Please, go away. Leave me alone. Miss Winters
        was right".  Joshua asks, "Miss Winters? What does she have to do
        with it?" Naomi replies, "She warned me. She warned me Sarah would 
        die on her 11th birthday".  Joshua asks, "She knew Sarah would die?" 
        Naomi replies, "She warned me".  Joshua exclaims,  "She killed
        her!"  Naomi replies, "No, she tried to save her.  I tried to save 
        her", but Joshua says, "How can you save a child once a witch has 
        put the mark of doom on her?"  Naomi asks, "Why would she warn me 
        if she did this?"  Joshua replies, "She told you to divert suspicion 
        from herself".  Naomi continues to believe Vicky innocent and 
        refuses to discuss it any longer, saying, "There's nothing more 
        to say".  Joshua replies, "Nothing more except retribution and 
        revenge!"  Naomi asks, "For Sarah or yourself?  Because you loved 
        Sarah, or because she was yours, your property?"  She adds, "Joshua, 
        if you're interested, Sarah's in her room. I dressed her in the 
        light blue dress she was to wear on her birthday.  She's upstairs, 
        if you want to say goodbye to her".
           Joshua goes to the Collinsport Gaol to see Vicky.  Vicky is
        in her cell.  Joshua is outside the cell, talking to her through
        the bars.  He tells Vicky that Sarah has died.  Vicky remarks, "Then 
        my warning didn't help".  Joshua replies, "Not in the way you meant, 
        I'm afraid. Why did you kill my daughter? What has the Collins Family
        done to you that you should do that?"  Vicky insists, "I tried to
        save her!  I tried to warn her!  I thought the past could be
        changed!"  Joshua asks, "That's what my wife said you said. What
        do you mean?"  Vicky replies, "You wouldn't understand.  Least of
        all, you", but Joshua insists she tell him.  Vicky tells him, "I
        come from another time, another century. I come from a time in the
        future and somehow found myself trapped here in the past. From what
        I read in the Collins family history, I know Sarah was destined to
        die on her 11th birthday."  Joshua remarks, "I see you have a window
        in your cell.  It'll be dusk soon. Do you like watching the sunset?"
        Vicky replies, "Yes".  Joshua tells her, "I suggest you look at this
        one carefully.  Enjoy your precious sunrises and sunsets.  I will
        see to it you have precious few of them left!  May the colors remind
        you of the fires of hell to which you'll go!"
           It is sunset. Ben goes to the Collins family mausoleum and
        goes into the secret room.  Barnabas awakens and comes out of
        his coffin . Ben tells him, "The funeral is over. Everyone's gone
        back to the house".  Barnabas moans, "I knew she'd die".  Ben
        tells him, "Everyone's blaming Miss Winters for it. There's a 
        terrible hullabaloo brewing in town."  Barnabas moans, "The 
        murderer stands right here. I blame myself".  Ben tries to reassure
        him, "That's not how Miss Sarah saw it, I'm sure". Barnabas tells 
        Ben he's decided to give himself up to save  Vicky, but Ben tells
        him, "No, there's another way. I could help her escape."  Barnabas
        dismisses the idea,  "No, you must not. She might be caught, and you 
        too.  No, there's only one way. I must go into the village tonight 
        and give myself up".  Ben exclaims, "No! I can't let you do it!",
        but Barnabas tells him, "You cannot stop me".  There's a noise
        outside.  Both Ben and Barnabas suddenly become very quiet. 
           Outside, Naomi has come into the mausoleum to see Sarah
        again.  Sarah has been put in her sarcophagus.  A wreath of fresh
        flowers still lie on it.  Naome cries, "Sarah! Sarah!"  Inside
        the secret room, Barnabas says, "My mother!"  Joshua comes into
        the crypt and says, "Naomi! You should not be here!"  Naomi replies,
        "I came to be with Sarah. Please let me stay".  Joshua tells her,
        "I must take you home".  Naomi replies, "This is my home now. 
        They're here now.  Both of them."  Joshua exclaims, "Naomi! No one
        must know Barnabas is buried here!  If they knew, they'd exhume
        his body, cremate it and scatter it out at sea!"  Naomi moans,
        "I failed to save them from their destiny. I failed to save them
        from YOU, your coldness."  Joshua begs, "Naomi, you must not stay
        here."  Finally, he too breaks down, "My children! My poor lost
        children!"  He then tells Naomi, "We must leave, never to return".
           Inside, Barnabas says quietly, "Mother! Father! Don't go!"
           A little later, after Joshua and Naomi have long gone,
        Ben and Barnabas exit the tomb. Barnabas tells Ben, "No, I can't
        go into the village now.  It would disgrace teh family forever.
        I can't have that."  Ben assures him, "I'll see to it Miss Winters
        escapes. No harm will come to Miss Winters."  Barnabas replies,
        "Good.  I'll wait till sunrise here, then you'll come back to
        me then".  Ben, puzzled, asks, "Don't you mean sunset?"  Barnabas
        replies, "No, sunrise".  Ben says, "I don't understand".  Barnabas
        looks at Sarah's grave and says, "She's at rest.  She's at peace.
        So will I be at sunrise.  Find a branch of a tree, a holly tree.
        Make it into a stake long enough to pierce a man's heart..."  Ben
        gasps, "What are you saying?!"  Barnabas replies, "You know..."
        Ben exclaims, "I can't! I won't!".  Barnabas replies, "You must!"
        Ben protests, "But it'll destroy you!"  Barnabas replies, "I'm
        already destroyed.  You will save me from an eternity of agony."
        Ben again says, "I can't!", but Barnabas begs, "I you are my friend,
        you will do it.  End my torment!  Please, I beg you!  I beg you!
        Let me hear you say the word.  Say it!  Yes!" Ben says, "Yes".

           Ben says, "I'm sorry, Mr. Barnabas".  Barnabas tells him, "Don't
        be".  Ben remarks, "To do what you want me to do, I don't want to
        think about it. You've been my friend".  Barnabas tells him,
        "You'll be giving the greatest gift one man can give to another,
        the gift of peace".  Ben says, "I'll try to think of it that way".
        Barnabas tells him, "I know you won't fail me.  See to it you do 
        everything you can to save Miss Winters. You know where the money 
        is.  Use whatever is necessary to help Miss Winters escape.  Keep 
        the rest of it for yourself, and use it to get as far away from 
        Collinwood as you can.  Josette. I must see her one more time".
        Ben exclaims, "You can't!"  Barnabas replies, "I must!"  Ben protests,
        "You can't let her know what you are!"  Barnabas replies, "She won't.
        I only want ot look at her.  I'm only going to go in her room and 
        look at her while she's sleeping. I must see her one more time".
        Ben points out, "But you might harm her like you harmed that girl 
        last night!"  Barnabas promises, "I won't".  Ben says, "You might 
        not be able to help yourself!"  Barnabas replies, "Nonsense.  Go 
        now, Ben.  Don't come back until after sunrise".  Ben begs, "Don't 
        go to her!", but Barnabas just says, "Go now, Ben".
           Josette is sleeping peacefully in her room. A squeaking sound
        is heard.  A bat flutters around in the room, then suddenly
        turns into Barnabas.  Barnabas stands there, looking at Josette.
        He says, "Goodbye, Josette, my dear Josette. I must not awaken her. 
        I must not come any closer.  I mustn't!  Josette!  How can I say 
        goodbye?  How can I ever say goodbye to you?  But I must! I must!" 
        Natalie comes into the room.  She sees Barnabas and screams, "AHHHHH!
        Barnabas!"  Barnabas vanishes into thin air...
           Josette awakens and says, "Who's there?  Aunt Natalie! Is 
        something wrong?"  Natalie lies, "No, nothing".  Josette asks, "Why 
        are you here?  What is it?".  Natalie replies,  "Nothing, nothing's 
        wrong.  Josette, I've come to a decision.  I've decided we must 
        leave Collinsport as soon as the arrangements can be made".  Josette
        replies, "You know I cannot. Before Barnabas died, he said he would
        come back to me".  Natalie exclaims, "Nonsense!"  Josette replies, 
        "It may be to you, but I'm not asking you to stay.  You can go back 
        to Martenique as soon as you wish".  Natalie remarks, "I'm 
        frightened.  You should be frightened too.  Your death has been 
        fortetold by a witch.  You're not afraid?"  Josette replies,
        "Perhaps I am.  Yet I cannot leave Collinwood until Barnabas 
        fufills his promise and comes back to me".  Natalie asks, "And if
        he never does?"  Josette replies, "Then I will wait here until I 
        die".  Natalie says, "Then you force me to tell you something I did 
        not want to tell you. I saw something".  Josette asks, "What did you 
        see?"  Natalie lies, "I saw the moment of my own death in the
        Tarot cards.  I will die if I don't leave Collinsport.  But I won't
        leave without you!"  Josette says, "Yes, of course.  We will have 
        to leave here as soon as possible".  
           Josette is in the garden.  Ben passes by and is surprised to
        see her there, as it is very late at night, almost dawn, in fact.
        He asks, "Miss Josette, is everything all right?"  Josette replies,
        "Yes, of course. Why ask?"  Ben tells her, "Becauss I was worried 
        about you.  I was worried because of all the things that have been 
        happening".  Josette replies,  "Please don't worry about me.  I'm 
        perfectly safe.  Ben, I'm leaving Collinwood soon".  Ben asks, 
        "Leaving?"  Josette replies, "Yes, Aunt Natalie and I are returning 
        to Martenique as soon as the arrangements can be made."  Ben tells
        her, "Go!  You should leave!  There's something about this house 
        that makes people who live in it unhappy".  Josette asks, "Ben, 
        you were very close to Barnabas.  Before he died, he said something 
        I can't forget.  He said he'd come back to me.  That's why I haven't 
        left yet".  Ben tells her, "He's dead! He can't come back!"  Josette
        replies, "I know it's not rational, but I just can't forget his 
        promise!  When I awoke, I thought I heard his voice calling me 
        from far away".  Ben tells her, "It must've been your imagination. 
        Get away from Collinwood.  It's the best thing you could do!  Believe
        me!"  He notices that Josette is listening intently to something and
        asks, "What is it?"  Josette replies, "I thought I heard something. 
        It sounded like laughing, coming from far away".  Ben says, "It 
        must've just been the wind".  Josette says, "Goodnight, Ben".  Ben
        replies, "Goodnight".  Josette leaves.  The cock crows.  Ben says 
        to himself, "In a few minutes, it'll be light, and I'll have to go 
        and do what I have to do. I don't want to do it, but I've got to, 
        I've got to!"                             
           The sun has risen.  Ben goes to the secret room.  He has with him
        a hammer and a sharpened stake.  He opens the coffin, places the
        stake over Barnabas' heart, but pulls back, overcome with emotion.
        He steels himself and places the stake over Barnabas' heart again.
        He raises the hammer and prepares to strike, but stops when the
        room suddenly fills with a woman's laughter. He asks, "Who's there? 
        Who are you?  Who?"  A woman's voice replies, "Ben!"  A giant 
        ghostly head appears, the head of Angelique.  Ben exclaims, "You!" 
        Angelique asks, "Did you think I'd allow you end my curse?"  Ben
        tells her, "You can't stop me from doing what I have to do!", but 
        Angelique  replies, "I can and I will.  Where is your stake, Ben?"
        Ben looks down at his hand and is shocked to see that the stake has
        disappeared.  Angelique continues, "I will never allow you to do what
        Barnabas wants you to do!  Every time you try, I will come back
        from the grave to stop you!  Now leave this place, and when Barnabas
        awakens, tell him what I told you! Go! Now!"  Ben leaves. Angelique
        looks down on the coffin and says, "Did you really think you could
        escape my curse, Barnabas?  You shall never escape, nor shall your

           Barnabas awakens, and is very surprised to do so.  He is furious
        with Ben for not having destroyed him, but Ben explains to him
        what happened.  Ben remarks, "She remembered your promise", speaking
        about Josette.  Barnabas asks, "What?", but Ben just says, "Nothing".
        Barnabas says, "You talked to her, didn't you? What did she say?"  Ben
        replies, "It's best if you don't think about her".  Barnabas demands
        to know, "What did she say?"  Ben replies, "She says she feels near
        to you". Barnabas tells Ben, "I must see her again. From a distance".
        Ben tells him, "She's going away.  Because you wanted her to go away".
        Barnabas replies, "Yes. She must go away. Far, far, away, as soon
        as possible".  He opens the secret door.  Ben asks, "You're not
        going to her?!"  Barnabas replies, "I'm going to where the night
        takes me, but not to Josette" and leaves. Suddenly, the secret
        room fills with a woman's laughter.  The ghostly head of Angelique
        appears again.  Ben, terrified, screams, "Go away!  Please!  I ain't
        done nothing!"  Angelique replies, "Ah, but you have, Ben. Do you
        think you and Barnabas can stop my curse?"  Ben tells her, "She's
        going away, and Barnabas will not go near her!"  Angelique replies,
        "If Barnabas refuses to go to Josette, then she will come to him!"
        Ben asks, "What do you mean?"  Angelique replies, "You will see,
        Ben. You will see..." She starts to say "Josette! Josette!". First
        the voice is hers, but then it turns to that of Barnabas...
           Josette is in bed sleeping. She hears Angelique's voice and,
        thinking it is Barnabas, says, "You have returned to me!". Angelique
        causes her to have a dream, "Dream!  Dream! In your dream, you will
        see me, but only as a shadow.  You will hear me, but only as a
        disembodied voice. Dream!  Dream!" Josette dreams.  In the dream,
        she is in a nondescript place outdoors.  Angelique is with her.
        Angelique tells her, "Do you want to find Barnabas?  Your first
        and greatest wish is about to be fufilled!"  Josette replies, "I 
        can't find him".  Angelique assures her, "You will find him".
        Josette asks, "Where?"  Angelique replies, "I will show you.  When I
        say the word,  you must turn.  See and remember.  Turn!" Josette
        turns and is startled to see a cemetary.  She screams.  Angelique
        reminds her, "See!  See and remember!"  Josette awakens and screams,
        then remembers and says, "Barnabas!  No!  You're there!".  She hears 
        what sounds like Barnabas' voice calling her, and says, "You're 
        there!" and goes out.
           Josette continues to follow the voice.  On the road just outside
        Eagle Hill cemetary, she runs into Ben.  He asks, "What are you
        doing out this time of night?  You shouldn't be here.  What are you 
        doing here?  You must've gotten yourself lost!", but Josette replies,
        "No, Ben.  I'm all right.  You go along".  Ben asks, "Do you know 
        where you are?  You're at the edge of a graveyard!"  Josette replies,
        "I know where I am".  Ben asks, "Why are you going there?"  Josette
        replies, "I don't think I have to explain myself to you".  She hears 
        the voice again and asks, "Do you hear that?"  Ben replies, "I don't 
        hear anything".  Josette exclaims, "It was his voice!"  Ben replies,
        "His voice? It wasn't his voice, no matter how much it sounded like 
        him. It may have sounded like Mr. Barnabas' voice, but it was 
        really..."  The giant ghostly head of Angelique appears behind 
        Josette and glowers at Ben.  Ben finishes his sentence, "...the 
        wind", and starts to act strangely, clearly under Angelique's 
        control.  He tells Josette, "Good night.  Just keep on the way
        you were going, pay no mind to anything I've said" and leaves.
        The voice continues to call, "Josette! Josette!"  Josette exclaims,
        It isn't just the wind! No!"
           Josette is now in the graveyard.  She asks herself, "Why am I
        here? It's only a dream!"  She goes into the Collins family
        mausoleum.  Inside, she looks at Sarah's nameplate.  Suddenly,
        she hears the gate close.  She turns and sees Barnabas standing
        there and exclaims, "Barnabas! You're not a ghost!"  Barnabas asks,
        "Why have you come to this place?"  Josette replies, "I heard you
        calling me".  Barnabas says, "I? I never called you."  Josette
        protests, "But you did!  I followed your voice!"  Barnabas tells her,
        "You must leave this place. You must go far, far away. You must not
        see me".  Josette asks, "Why do you say that? You promised to come
        back to me and now you have".  Barnabas again tells her, "You must
        leave at once!"  Josette asks, "Why do you say that? You don't mean
        it!"  Barnabas replies, "I mean it with all my heart and soul".
        Josette protests, "But I love you!"  Barnabas replies,"If you love
        me, you will go.  There is a power over both of us you do not
        understand", but Josette says, "I DO understand, and I know what
        that power is.  That power is your love for me, and mine for you.
        We will start a new life together!"  Barnabas tells her, "You do
        not know what that new life will be like.  Just leave!  I beg you!
        If you love me, you will go!  Forget you ever saw me!"  Josette 
        starts to walk towards him, but Barnabas exclaims, "You musn't 
        come near me!"  Josette begs, "Please, whatever it is, I'm not 
        afraid.  Just hold me!  Please, Barnbas!"  Barnabas weakens and 
        embraces her.  Josette says, "At last, I'm safe.  I'm safe at last. 
        Oh, Barnabas!"  Barnabas, weakening even further, opens his mouth, 
        baring his fangs...
