      Judge Vail, shocked, asks "Who did you say you were?"  The woman
   replies "Joanna Mills".  Barnabas whispers to Quentin, "Is it?"  Quentin
   replies, "I can't believe it, but it is!"  Dawson objects, saying she must
   be an imposter.  Barnabas replies that that will be very easy to establish,
   that all they have to do is compare her to the self-portrait the Dawson
   had entered as evidence. Judge Vail announces that the woman will be
   allowed to testify if it can be proven she is Joanna Mills.  He annouces 
   that court will be adjourned until 2:00 to allow the court to compare the
   woman to the portrait and compare her handwriting to the signature.
      At Collinwood, Gerard remarks to Samantha, "Too bad Quentin's trial
   isn't open to the public. I'd love to watch the spectacle!"  He notices
   that she doesn't respond to his "joke" and looks worried.  He asks her
   what's wrong.  She explains that she is still worried about Joanna's
   spirit apparently having come back.  He asks why.  She replies that she's
   afraid that Joanna is angry with her because she's been forging letters
   from her.
      In jail, Barnabas and Quentin are discussing the trial. Joanna comes
   in.  Quentin asks Barnabas to let him speak to her in private and Barnabas
   leaves.  Quentin asks Joanna to explain everything. She tells him it's
   almost 2:00 and they don't have time.  He asks her if she's been writing
   the letters to him.  She replies that she did not send them, but that she
   wouldn't know if she wrote them without seeing them.  She tells him that
   she had written some letters to him while she was in the asylum that were
   never sent, that someone might have gotten hold of them and been sending
   them to him.  Quentin tells him about Daphne coming to Collinwood with
   the intention of killing him. He tells Joanna that Daphne she changed her
   mind and things are different now.  He tells her they've "got to talk",
   but before they can, Barnabas comes in and announces that the Judges have
   come back and court is about to reconvene.
      Court reconvenes. Judge Vail announces that they are convinced that
   the woman is indeed Joanna Mills and that they will allow her to testify.
   She takes the stand.  The court asks her explain where she's been.  Joanna
   explains that after she "released herself" from the hospital, she went to
   Boston where she's been living quietly.  The judge asks her, "What about
   the body they found that was identified as you?"  She replies that she
   knows nothing about it, that they were obviously mistaken.  Asked about the
   letter Trask found in the tree, she explains, "I came back to visit 
   Collinsport about three days ago and walked by an oak tree where Quentin
   and I used to meet.  I found a note where we used to leave notes to each
   other and took it, thinking that Quentin had somehow learned that I had
   come and wanted to surprise me.  I took it, wrote a reply and put it in
   the tree.  Barnabas asks the court that in light of this testimony Trask's
   testimony about Quentin raising the dead be stricken since it is obvious
   that Joanna is not dead and it was she that Trask saw.  The court agrees,
   and further adds, "It also brings into doubt some other earlier
   testimony."  Dawson asks for a recess. The court adjourns till 10:00
   tomorrow morning.
      Outside, Dawson goes to Gerard and tells him what happened.  He
   tells him that they're in trouble and need some strong evidence.  He
   tells Gerard he thinks they might have to use the head of Judah Zachary.
   Gerard is still reluctant about this, tells him he'll think about it and
   tells him he'll tell him tomorrow.  Gerard then exclaims, "Oh no! I've
   got to go tell Samantha about Joanna!"
      Joanna goes to Collinwood.  Samantha answers the door.  Joanna
   identifies herself and asks to see her sister Daphne. Samantha tells
   her Daphne is upstairs.  Joanna starts up the stairs.  Gerard comes in
   and, seeing the look of shock on Samantha's face, starts to ask what's
   wrong but then sees Joanna walking on the landing and realizes what it is .
   He remarks, "I think you need a brandy" and goes into the drawing room
   to pour her one.  She follows him in there.  She gasps, "But she's dead!"
   Gerard replies, "No she isn't.  It's obvious she's alive.  They must have
   made a mistake about the body".  Samantha continues to claim, "She's dead!"
   Gerard tells her, "Get a hold of yourself. Any sane person can see she's
   not dead."  Joanna blurts out,"She's dead!  I know because I killed her!"

      Gerard asks Samantha to explain, saying Joanna's sudden appearance
   badly hurt their case against Quentin and he needs to know everything
   that happened to Joanna.  Samantha explains that it all began with two
   letters. The first was one from the asylum to Quentin telling him 
   Joanna had gone insane and was in there.  She tells him Quentin never saw
   the letter because it came while he was away at sea.  She tells Gerard she
   went to visit Joanna at the asylum and found that she was indeed mad 
   and figured she wouldn't have to worry about her as a rival for Quentin
   again.  But later another letter arrived, this time from Joanna to Quentin
   telling him she was well now, was going to leave the asylum soon and
   wanted to see him.  Samantha tells Gerard that Quentin was still at sea and
   she arranged a meeting with Joanna on the grounds of the asylum. She tells
   Gerard she got into an fight with her over Quentin and accidently pushed
   Joanna off the cliff onto the rocks below. Gerard suggests, "Maybe there
   was a high tide and she fell into the water and survived, and they found
   another body and mistook it for her." Samantha dismisses this and fearfully
   tells him she thinks Joanna has come back from the dead to get revenge.
      Daphne walks in through the front door into the foyer. She sees Joanna
   coming down the stairs and, thinking it is Joanna's ghost coming for her,
   screams, "Help!  She's here to kill me!" and runs into the drawing room to
   Gerard.  Gerard explains to her that it is Joanna, but that she's alive and
   not a ghost.  Joanna comes into the drawing room.  Daphne touches her hand
   and finds that she is indeed not a ghost.  They greet each other and go
   upstairs to talk.
      Upstairs, Joanna apoligizes to Daphne, saying, "I didn't know I would
   be such a shock to everyone."  They talk.  Daphne explains to Joanna that
   she was frightened by her because the letters she's been receiving from her
   made her think she was a threat to her. Joanna, puzzled, replies that she
   hasn't been sending any letters to her.  Daphne tells her that she has,
   that they were signed by her and were in her handwriting.  Joanna asks to
   see one of these letters.  Daphne shows her one.  Joanna tells her, "I
   didn't write this. It isn't in my handwriting."  She shows the letter to
   Daphne and points out, "Look, these aren't my T's and S's."
      Joanna comes downstairs to the drawing room, says goodbye to Gerard and
   Samantha and leaves.  Samantha is still terrified, convinced that Joanna
   has come back from the dead to get vengeance.  Gerard tells her to go
   upstairs and try to relax.  Samantha goes upstairs.  Gerard remarks,"Joanna
   will be very useful to me, both in my plans for Samantha and Daphne".  He
   goes to the fire, takes out his occult charm and casts another spell on
   Daphne.
      Upstairs, Daphne has another dream in which she and Gerard lie in bed,
   professing their love for one another and kissing.  She awakens and goes
   to the room in the dream and finds Gerard there.  Seeing that she is now 
   ready, Gerard takes her hand and asks,"Daphne, will you marry me?"

      Daphne tells Gerard she'll have to think about it.  Samantha comes
   into the room, sees them together and becomes angry.  Daphne leaves.
   Samantha tells Gerard she is still afraid of Joanna.  She asks, "Why does
   she pretend she doesn't know me?"  She tells him she is very angry that he
   won't do anything about Joanna and threatens to tell Quentin or Barnabas
   about what he's been doing.  He slaps her and calms her down and reassures
   her that he'll help her with Joanna.  After she leaves, he thinks to 
   herself "You're the problem I've got to solve, not Joanna..."
      Joanna visits Quentin in jail.  She tells him that Daphne had shown
   her one of the letters she had been receiving.  She tells him she didn't
   write it.  She shows him her necklace and tells him it's the only thing
   she still has to remind her of their time together.  She asks, "Do you
   remember the night you gave it to me?  It was my birthday.  You said,'By
   your next birthday, you'll be living in Collinwood, you'll be Mrs. Quentin
   Collins."  She tells him that when he gets out of jail, they'll finally
   be able to make that come true.  Quentin asks, "Do you remember the night
   I told you Samantha wouldn't give me a divorce, the night seperated? 
   Whatever we had together died that night. We won't be able to recapture 
   it. It's over between us."  Joanna asks,"What is it, are you in love with
   someone else?"  Quentin replies, "I'm in love with Daphne."
      At Collinwood, Samantha asks Daphne what her sister Joanna had said
   about her.  Daphne replies, that she didn't say anything about her, that
   she didn't mention her at all.  She remarks, "You might be interested to
   know that I showed her one of the letters I've been getting and she told
   me it wasn't from her."  She asks Samantha about the spirit she claimed to
   have seen behind her by the window.  She tells her it obviously couldn't
   have been Joanna since Joanna is alive and tells her she thinks someone's
   trying to frighten her out of the house.  Samantha becomes angry and
   exclaims, "And you think it's me!" and storms out of the room.  In the
   foyer, she runs into Gerard and whispers to him, "She suspects me!  Do
   something about it!" and goes upstairs.  Gerard goes into the drawing room
   and tells Daphne he wants to talk to her, but she tells him, "I need to 
   think!" and leaves.
      Gerard takes out his occult charm and starts to cast a spell on Daphne,
   remarking, "This time you'll remember..."
      Daphne goes to the room she dreamed about, wonders to herself, "Why is
   this the only place I feel at peace?", lies on the bed, and falls asleep.
   She has a dream in which Quentin tells Joanna, "My Joanna has come back 
   to me!"  They kiss.  Daphne awakens and exclaims, "No! Joanna!  What am I
   going to do?"
      Later, in the drawing room, Daphne asks Joanna about her and Quentin.
   Joanna tells her about what happened at the jail earlier, but tells her
   she still loves Quentin.  Samantha comes in and asks to speak to Joanna
   alone.  Daphne leaves.  Samantha reminds Joanna that they had met once,
   while she was going with her brother Randall, that it was one night when
   he was taking her to a concert.  She asks her, "Wasn't there another time
   we met?" J oanna replies that she doens't think so.  Samantha tell her she
   isn't welcome at Collinwood anymore.  Joanna replies, "Very well. Next
   time, I'll arrange to meet my sister in the village."  She adds, "We'll
   meet again soon" and turns to leave.  Samantha, in a frightened voice,
   gasps, "What do you mean by that?"  Joanna replies, "Oh, nothing. I just
   mean it's a small village and well no doubt run into each other sooner
   or later".
      Daphne goes to the jail and tells Quentin, "I can't see you anymore.
   Joanna still loves you."  Quentin tries to explain to her that it's over
   between him and Joanna, but Daphne replies, "It wouldn't be if it weren't
   for me.  I can't get between you and her."  Quentin tries to get her to 
   change her mind, but she tells him, "No. I don't feel the same about you
   anymore. I'm going to marry Gerard Stiles."

      Quentin, shocked, wonders what could have happened. He asks Daphne to
   promise not to do anything until he gets out of jail. He tells her he
   is confident that he'll get out soon, that the prosecution doesn't have
   much of a case against him and that the only witness left is Mordecai
   Grimes, and the only thing he'll be able to say is that his cows died and
   claim he was responsible without any proof.
      At Mordecai Grime's house, Mordecai Grimes reads a letter from Charles
   Dawson aloud.  In it, Dawson tells him he isn't calling him to testify
   because he doesn't think his testimony is strong enough.  Mordecai Grimes
   complains to his son Jeremy, "You know what this means. It means he's
   giving up. If Charles Dawson doesn't want me to testify, I'll have to go
   to someone higher up."  Jeremy asks him who he means.  His father refuses
   to tell him, remarking, "I know how you feel about this". Jeremy, angry,
   stalks out.
      Jeremy and Carrie meet in the woods.
      Gerard goes to the jail to talk to Quentin.  They get into an argument
   about Daphne.  Quentin angrily tells Gerard, "Desmond and Barnabas warned
   me you couldn't be trusted.  Now I believe them!"  He vows to do anything
   necessary to prevent him from marrying Daphne.  Gerard asks him what he
   means.  Quentin replies that he'll kill him if necessary.  Gerard acts
   shocked and remarks, "But we're such friends!  How can you say something
   like that?"  Quenting replies, "What hypocrisy!"  Gerard tries to apoligize,
   saying falling in love is not a voluntary act, that he's guilty of nothing
   but falling in love.
      Jeremy takes Carrie to the door of Collinwood.  He tells her that this
   time, he insists on going in with her, that "it's time they told everyone
   about us."  They go inside.  In the foyer, Carrie begs Jeremy to leave.
   They hear a door.  They turn and are shocked to see it's Mordecai Grimes.
   Mordecai, furious, exclaims to Jeremy, "Now I know where you've been
   going nights!"  He orders them to stop seeing each other and takes Jeremy
   with him.
      Gerard goes to Mordecai Grimes' house.  He tells Grimes that he had
   heard he had come to Collinwood looking for him.  Grimes shows him the
   letter.  Gerard tells him he agrees with it, that he doesn't think his
   testimony is strong enough as it is now.  He tells him he has searched
   Quentin's lab and found some very powerful evidence that everyone's
   overlooked.  He tells him the evidence is so strong that it will almost
   certainly convict Quentin, but that he can't present it himself because
   he wants to maintain an appearance of neutrality.  He asks Grimes to
   include it as part of his testimony and claim that he, Grimes, had found
   it.  Grimes agrees to do so.  Gerard tells him to write a letter to Dawson
   telling him that he, Grimes, had found important evidence that will
   convict Quentin and ask him to come here to look at it.  Grimes writes the
   letter.  Gerard leaves, saying he's going to Collinwood to get the evidence
   to bring here.  Grimes calls his son Jeremy, gives him the note and tells
   him to deliver it to Charles Dawson.  Jeremy takes the letter and leaves.
      At Collinwood, Carrie thinks to herself that maybe if she went to
   Mordecai Grimes and told him how she and Jeremy feel about each other
   maybe he'll change his mind.  She leaves to do so.
      Gerard returns to Collinwood and goes into the drawing room.  He goes
   to the fire and takes out his occult charm to cast a spell.  He remarks,
   "I'm sorry, Mr. Grimes, I have nothing against you, but I'm going to have
   to sacrifice you to convict Quentin."  He casts a spell to send a "Shadow
   of Death" to Mordecai Grimes.  
      At Mordcai Grimes house, the shadow, which is similar to the one
   Angelique sent against Jeb Hawkes, envelops a screaming Grimes.
      At Collinwood, Gerard triumphantly remarks, "Quentin Collins WILL be
   found guilty!"
      Carrie arrives at Mordecai Grimes' house.  She finds Grimes lying
   on the floor.  He is still alive, but just barely.  He gasps, "Quentin
   Collins did this to me!" and dies.  Carrie is shocked...

      Jeremy returns from delivering the letter.  He sees Carrie there and
   tells her, "Carrie! You've got to leave before my father sees you!".
   Carrie shows Jeremy the body of his father, which he had not seen because
   it was behind a table.  Jeremy is griefstricken.  He asks Carrie if she
   knows what happened.  She tells him his was still alive when she got here.
   Jeremy asks, "Did he say anything before he died?"  Carrie, reluctantly,
   replies, "Yes. Yes he did..."
      Gerard and Dawson gloat over what's happened.
      Barnabas goes to the jail and tells Quentin about the death of
   Mordecai Grimes. Quentin asks how he died. Barnabas replies that they
   don't know yet, that they're still waiting for the coroner's report.
   He warns him that the prosecution will try to say it was caused by
   Witchcraft and try to pin this on him if at all possible.
      Court comes to order. Charles Dawson tells the court that it was his
   intention to call Mordecai Grimes to the stand today but that that is now
   impossible because of Grimes's sudden death.  The court asks, "Then you
   rest your case, then?". Dawson replies, "No, I intend to call two entirely
   new witnesses. I intend to prove that Quentin Collins is responsible for
   Mordecai Grimes' death, that he did so through Witchcraft!"  He calls to
   the stand Carrie Stokes.  He tells her to tell the court what happened.
   She recounts the story of how she went to Mordecai Grimes' house and
   found him near death.  Dawson asks, "And Miss Stokes, did Mr. Grimes say
   anything to you while he was still alive?"  Carrie is reluctant to answer
   and doesn't say anything.  Dawson presses her and she finally admits that
   Grimes had said, "Quentin Collins did this!"
      Dawson introduces as evidence the coroner's report. It states that
   Mordecai Grimes had been in excellent health and that no cause of death
   could be found.  Dawson concludes, "Thus, the death could only have been
   caused by sorcery!"
      Dawson calls Jeremy Grimes to the stand.  Dawson takes a letter out
   of his pocket and asks Jeremy if he recogizes it.  Jeremy replies that he
   does, that it's the letter his father had written and had him deliver
   to Dawson on the night of his death.  Dawson reads the letter to the court
   and tells it that the contents, in which Mordecai Grimes says he has found
   important evidence against Quentin, give Quentin's motive for murdering
   Mordecai Grimes.  Dawson closes his case.
      The court tells Barnabas it is now his turn to present his case in
   defense of Quentin Collins.  Barnabas tells the court he has only one
   witness to call, the only witness who can establish Quentin Collins'
   innocence.  He calls Quentin Collins to the stand.  He asks Quentin,
   "Is it true you argued with Mordecai Grimes?"  Quentin replies, "Yes,
   but so did everyone else.  He was a cantankerous man."  Barnabas asks if
   he ever practiced Witchcraft.  Quentin replies that he didn't.
      Dawson cross-examines Quentin.  He states, "It has already been
   established that Desmond Collins brought the head of Judah Zachary back
   from his travels.  Did you ask him to find it and bring it back for you?"
   Quentin replies that he did.  Dawson asks why.  Quentin replies, "Out of
   curiosity."  Dawson pooh-poohs this and tells the court it is obvious he
   brought it back for its powers, that he's been using those powers.
   Quentin angrily denies this, glares at Dawson and exclaims, "I'll get
   you for this when I get out!"  The court asks Barnabas if he has any more
   witnesses.  Barnabas replies no and rests his case.
      Dawson gives his closing statement.  He recounts how Quentin was the
   last person to be seen with Lorna Bell, how he was found kneeling beside
   the body of Randall Drew, how the same occult symbol that appears on
   Quentin's ring was found on Lorna Bell's forehead and drawn on a piece of
   paper beside Randall Drew's body.  He reminds the court that Quentin had
   been building what he claimed was a "Staircase through time".  He recounts
   how Quentin had asked Desmond to bring him the head of Judah Zachary.
   He states that Quentin is possessed by the spirit of Judah Zachary, that
   he has just threatened vengeance against him just as Judah Zachary had
   vowed vengeance against all his enemies.  He closes by saying, "Finally,
   I say it is obvious that Quentin Collins struck down Mordecai Grimes!"
      Barnabas responds with his closing argument.  He states that all the
   evidence against Quentin is circumstantial, that none of the witnesses
   called against him are witnesses in the true sense of the word in that
   none of them actually saw him practice witchcraft.
      The court recesses to deliberate.
      Carrie goes to Jeremy and tells him that the court has recessed to
   deliberate.  Jeremy remarks, "Good.  I hope he's found guilty and is
   punished."  Carrie is shocked and asks how he could say this.  Jeremy
   replies, "He killed my father."  Carrie tells him that that's ridiculous.
   She starts to say, "You're starting to sound like your..." but stops.
   Jeremy exclaims, "Like what?  Like my father?  Maybe if I had listened
   to him earlier, he'd still be alive!"  Carrie, upset, leaves.
      The court reconvenes. Judge Vail announces, "The court has reached
   a decicion. Will the witness please rise to hear the decision of the
   court."

      Quentin stands up. Judge Vail announces, "You have been found guilty
   of the crime of practicing Witchcraft and are hereby sentenced to be
   taken to the town square on a date that will be decided by the court and
   beheaded."  Barnabas is shocked and exclaims that he will appeal.  Judge
   Vail replies that there are no appeals in this kind of case.  He closes
   the case and adjourns the court.
      Daphne visits Quentin in jail and tells him she can't believe what 
   happened.  Quentin sadly tells her he'll have to make preparations for
   his death and tells her to try to forget him.  Barnabas comes in and tells
   them he's tried to talk to the judges, but he couldn't get them to listen
   to reason and give them an appeal.  Quentin asks, "Did you try to tell them
   Gerard is behind all this? " Daphne, surprised, exclaims, "Gerard?"  Quentin
   explains to her how they suspect Gerard is behind all this, that he has
   everything to gain from it.
      At Collinwood, Gerard goes into the drawing room.  Gabriel is in there.
   Gabriel remarks to Gerard, "Well, why aren't you smiling?  Quentin's been
   found guilty. Isn't that what you wanted?"  Gerard lies that it isn't.
   Edith runs in and exclaims, "Gerard!  Have you heard about Quentin?".
   Gabriel rolls out. Edith and Gerard talk. They decide to meet at
   11 O'clock "in the usual place".  Edith remarks to Gerard that she thinks
   she has something coming to her.  Gerard replies that she'll get all she
   deserves.  Unbeknownst to them, Gabriel is eavesdropping throught the door.
      Later, Gabriel rolls into the drawing room and finds Edith in there
   alone.  She is sitting by the fireplace staring at the mantel clock.
   Gabriel sarcastically remarks, "Waiting for your 11 O'clock meeting with
   Gerard?"  She pretends not to know what he's talking about.  He tells her
   to stop lying, saying he heard them talking.  She replies, "All right!
   I AM going to meet Gerard.  I like a man who always gets what he wants.
   What are you going to do about it, stop me?"  Gabriel replies that he is.
   She laughs and tells him, "How are you going to stop me?  You're nothing
   by a cripple!  Why don't you go upstairs, drink your steaming hot cocoa
   and go to bed with your hot water bottle?" and leaves.
      Barnabas and Daphne return to Collinwood.  Daphne dejectedly remarks,
   "I can't believe what's happened.  We can't just stand by and let Quentin
   be beheaded!" B arnabas replies that he doesn't intend to.  Daphne asks,
   "What do you plan to do?"  Barnabas answers, "I don't know, but we still
   have a week to think of what to do".
      Having taken Daphne home, Barnabas leaves.  Daphne walks up the stairs.
   On the landing she pauses and thinks to herself, "It's this house!
   Strange things happen to everyone who lives here!  Why did I ever come
   here?"  She hears some music start to play.  She listens carefully and
   is surprised to find that it seems to be coming from the East Wing.
   She thinks to herself, "The East Wing?  It can't be, the East Wing's been
   closed for years!"  She goes to investigate.
      It's 11:00. Edith goes into the drawing room and closes the doors.
   She hears a noise outside and asks, "Who's there?"  She goes out to the
   foyer to look.  There's no one there.  The front doors blow open.  She
   goes and closes them.  The lights suddenly go out.  Frightened, Edith runs
   upstairs.  She goes and bangs on the door of the bedroom belonging to her
   and Gabriel.  There is no answer.  She opens it and goes in.  She sees
   Gabriel's wheelchair sitting there, empty.  She turns and is shocked to
   see Gabriel standing there.  She gasps, "You can walk!".  He replies,
   "I've been able to walk for years!"  He goes on, "You like a man who gets
   what he wants?  Well, I going to get what I want. I want you dead!"  He
   grabs her and strangles her.  After killing her, he remarks to the body,
   "You've always loved Collinwood.  I know a place you can stay forever!"
      Daphne follows the sound to a room in the East Wing. It is the parallel
   time room.  The music stops.  She opens the door and finds that the room is
   empty and looks like it hasn't been used for a long time. She thinks to
   herself, "I could've swore it was coming from here."  She closes the doors
   and turns to leave, but hears a knocking sound coming from the room. 
   She turns back and opens the doors again and is astounded to see that the 
   room is now brightly lit and sumptiously furnished.  She sees a blond woman
   in there.  She exclaims, "Valerie!" and tries to walk in but finds her way
   blocked by an invisible barrier.  The knocking sound continues and the
   woman goes and opens another door on the other side of the room.  A man
   comes in.  Though the woman looks just like Valerie, the man addesses
   her as Catharine. The man tells the woman he has something important to
   ask her.  He asks her, "I, Morgan Collins ask you, Catharine Harridge to
   marry me."  She pauses and tells him she'll need some time to think about
   it.  After the man leaves, another woman walks in.  Daphne is shocked.  It
   is her.  The other Daphne tells Catharine she heard what happened and says,
   "I'm your sister.  You can tell me the real reason you refused him."
   Catherine replies, "I don't know what you're talking about".  The other
   Daphne says, "There's only one man you ever loved". C atherine protests,
   "But he's been gone for five years!"  The other Daphne counters, "But there
   are rumors that he's coming back."  Catherine insists that that's all in
   the past, that it's all over between her and this unnamed man.  Daphne is
   shocked to see the room suddenly become dark and empty again.  She walks
   in and gasps, "This is impossible!  I must be hallucinating!... No, it was
   too real..."
      Gabriel carries the body of Edith the the East Wing, remarking,
   "You're going to love it there, such solitude as you've never known!".
   He hears a noise and quickly hides.  He sees Daphne walking through the
   hallway on the way out of the East Wing.
      Daphne goes to Gabriel and Edith's bedroom looking for them, but
   finds only Gabriel's wheelchair there, empty.  Gabriel, coming from the
   East Wing, runs to his room to get back in his wheelchair before anyone
   finds out, but sees Daphne in there and runs off before she sees him.
      Daphne comes downstairs. She goes and opens the drawing room doors
   gasps, "Oh my God...."

     (Missed about 5 minutes due to oversleeping)
     Gabriel, having kidnapped Daphne, takes her to an old room in the unused
   East Wing, ties her up, gags her and leaves her there, intending to hold
   her for ransom.  Daphne learns that it was he, and not Quentin who killed
   Randall Drew, that he did so to get Quentin out of the way so he would
   inherit the Collins fortune, but that it didn't work out that way.
     On his way out of the East Wing, Gabriel walks by the Parallel Time room.
   He hears what sounds like Flora's voice coming from behind the closed doors.
   He opens the door and sees what looks like Flora talking to a young blond
   woman.  Surprised, he asks, "Flora!  What are you doing there?", but she
   doesn't answer. In fact, she doesn't appear to even hear him.  Gabriel tries
   to walk in, but finds his way barred by some sort of invisible barrier.
   Inside the room, the woman who looks like Flora, in a voice suggesting she
   is reprimanding a servant, asks the young woman, "What's the matter?  Do
   you have a bad memory?"  The blond woman apoligizes to the woman who looks
   like Flora, "I'm sorry, Mrs. Collins, but I thought I was helping." "Flora"
   asks her what she was doing out of her room after 9:00 when she had been
   expessly told when she was hired that she was to remain in her room after
   9:00.  The blond woman explains, "I thought I heard a scream coming from
   the North Tower. I thought someone was in trouble and was going to help."
   "Flora" replies, "You must have been imagining it.  There was no scream.
   Nothing unusual happened last night. I n any event, you were hired to be
   a private secretary, not to 'help'.  In the future, regardless of what you
   think you hear, you are to remain in your room after 9:00 as instructed.
   Now, we have some correspondence to take care of."  She goes and closes
   the door.
      Gerard, looking for Daphne, walks down the stairs into the foyer.
   There, he runs into Gabriel, who's now back in he wheelchair. Gerard asks
   Gabriel if he knows where Daphne is.  Gabriel lies, "No. Why are you
   looking for her?"  Gerard replies that he thinks something has frightened
   her, that when he ran into her earlier, she acted hysterical and hit him
   in the head with a candlestick, knocking him out, and that she's now
   nowhere to be found.  Gabriel asks him if he knows where Edith is. Gerard
   replies that he doesn't.  Gabriel caustically remarks, "You should. I know
   what's been going on.  You two have been secretly meeting." Gerard
   vehemently denies this and tells Gabriel he'd better stop making such
   scurrilous accusations or he'll cut his allowance. He then leaves, saying
   he's going to Rose Cottage to see if Daphne is there.
      Samantha goes into the drawing room and finds Gabriel in there. SHe
   asks him where Gerard is . Gabriel replies that he's at Rose Cottage
   looking for Daphne.  Samantha asks, "What's Daphne doing at Rose Cottage?"
   Gabriel replies, "He doesn't know whether she's there or not.  She missing
   and he's looking for her everywhere."  Gerard returns and tells them that
   Daphne is not at Rose Cottage.  Samantha asks, "What's all this about
   Daphne?"  Gabriel caustically remarks, "Maybe she found out that Gerard
   is having an affair with my wife" and rolls out.  Gerard, furious, starts
   to go after Gabriel, but Samantha grabs him and in a jealous voice demands
   to know what Gabriel was talking about.  Gerard tells him that it's all
   Gabriel's imagination that he's having an affair with Edith, that he
   would never have anything to do with such a woman.  They hear a knock at
   the front door.  They look into the foyer and see Gabriel answer the door.
   They are shocked to see who is is.  It is Joanna.  She tells Gabriel that
   she wants to see her sister.  Gerard goes and tells her Daphne isn't here
   right now.  Joanna tells him that it's very important, that that's why
   she came here.  She asks if she can wait at Collinwood for Daphne.
   Samantha starts to say "No...", but Gerard interrupts her and tells
   Joanna she can go up to Daphne's room and wait for her there.  Joanna
   remarks, "By the way, I've learned that when I 'left' the asylum, they
   sent my things here. I'd like to have to have them sent to me."
     Having taken Joanna up to Daphne's room, Gerard comes back down to the
   drawing room. There, he and Samantha get into an argument about his
   letting Joanna stay to wait.  She tells him she is afraid Joanna will try
   to do something to her.  Gerard promises that he'll protect her.  This calms
   her down.  He tells her he's learned she's sent Tad away and asks why she
   did this.  She tells she sent Tad to stay with friends in Boston because he
   was very upset about his father's conviction.  He asks, "You're not
   suspicious that I would do something to him to prevent him from getting
   his inheritance at 21, do you?"  She assures him that she does not.
      Gabriel goes to the East Wing and to Daphne. He ungags her and tells
   her "I would never have believed it, but I saw that room you were talking 
   about."  She asks him what he saw there.  He tells her that's not important.
   He demands to know what she knows about that room.  She tells her she
   knows nothing aside from what she saw.  He remarks, "Julia and Mr. Stokes
   seemed very interested in it when they heard about it.  What did they
   say about it?"  She replies that when she took them to it and showed it
   to them, after it changed, Stokes said some things that she didn't
   understand, but that Julia explained to her that it was a doorway to
   "Paralell Time", a world much like ours, but different.  She adds that
   Julia had told her that if you were in that room when it changed, you
   would end up in paralell Time.  She suggests to him that that might be
   an escape route for him.  He replies, "That sounds very interesting. I
   might try it.  But not until after I've gotten what I want from Gerard..."
      Gabriel opens the door connecting the East Wing to the used part of
   the house and prepare to go out, but at the same time, Joanna comes out
   of Daphne's room, the door to which opens onto the same hallway*.  Gabriel
   sees Joanna and quickly close door before she sees him, but unfortunately,
   in his haste he closes the door a little too quickly and she hears it.
   She goes to the door, opens it, walks into the East Wing and asks, "Is
   there anyone there?"  Gabriel, meanwhile, is hiding around the corner
   holding a rope in his hands in a manner suggesting that he is prepared
   to strangle her...

   * The door to the East Wing is at the end of the hallway, the door to
   Daphne's room, on the side.

      Joanna, luckily for her, doesn't see anything and leaves.     
      The next day, Joanna goes downstairs.  She runs into Gabriel in the
   foyer.  He remarks, "No luck in finding your sister?"  She replies that
   she didn't and can't wait any longer.  She asks him why he isn't trying
   to help Quentin.  He replies that he's mourning for his wife Edith.  She
   asks him, "Is anyone using the East Wing?  I thought I heard a noise in
   there last night".  He replies,"No" and jokes that maybe she heard a ghost.
      Joanna goes to the jail to visit Quentin.  Quentin moans that he feels
   bad about he fact that Desmond tried to help him and as a result is now
   in jail too and will probably meet the same fate as him.  Joanna replies,
   "NO!  We can take him along too!"  He asks her what she means.  She tells
   him she has an escape route all prepared for him, that at 11:50 tonight
   a ship is leaving Collinsport tonight, that she knows the captain of the
   ship and has gotten him to agree to take him. She tells him he must
   escape and get to the docks tonight.  At first, he refuses, saying that it
   would make it look like he's guilty, and he's worried about how that 
   would affect Tad, but she finally convinces him, saying he can explain to
   Tad later.  He tells her to go to Desmond and tell him about the escape,
   and to tell Leticia too.
      Joanna goes and tells Leticia about the escape.  Leticia, using her
   second sight, has forebodings about it, saying she gets the feeling that
   it won't work, but Joanna convinces her it must be her imagination.
   Leticia tells her they've got to tell Daphne about this too.  Joanna tells
   her no one knows where Daphne is.
      Leticia goes to Collinwood to look for Daphne.  She finds Gabriel in
   the drawing room and asks him if he knows where Daphne is.  He tells her
   she was acting very strangely before she disappeared, that she seemed to
   be afraid of Gerard, that she even hit him with a candlestick once . He
   implies that Gerard might have had something to do with her disappearance.
   The clock strikes 11 o'clock.  Leticia gasps,"It's 11 o'clock!".  Gabriel
   asks, "What's the matter?".  Leticia lies, "Oh, nothing, it's just late,
   that's all" and leaves.
      At 11:00, Quentin calls for the guard and, holding his stomach as if
   in great pain, gasps "Help... I'm sick... It's the food you've been
   giving me..." and collapses onto the bed.  The guard unlocks the door,
   comes in and bends down to examing Quentin.  Quentin suddenly sits up and
   hits the guard, knocking him out.  He takes his keys and goes and lets
   Desmond out of his cell.  But as they pass Quentin's cell on their way
   back out, the guard regains cosnciousness and tries to stop them. In the
   struggle, the guard shoots Desmond.  Quentin knocks the guard out again
   and takes a wounded Desmond out.
      Quentin takes Desmond to a storehouse on the docks and meets Joanna
   there.  Leticia comes and, out of breath, says she couldn't find Daphne,
   that she thinks Gerard has her.  She then sees Desmond lying wounded on a
   table, gasps "Oh, no!" and goes to him.  Quentin tells Joanna he cannot go.
   Joanna asks, "Because of Desmond?". "No", he replies, "Because of Daphne.
   I can't go while she's missing."  Leticia tell them, "I've got to go get
   Julia. She'll know what to do" and leaves. Quentin and Joanna leave to
   tell the captain of the ship they won't be going.
      Leticia returns and tells Desmond that Julia is coming. She says to
   Desmond, "Oh, why did this have to happen?  We could've have been in
   England together."  Desmond asks, "We?" and suddenly realizes that she's
   in love with him.  They kiss.
      Gabriel, going to the East Wing to check on Daphne, is startled to
   hear what sounds like his own voice.  He follows the sound and finds it's
   coming from the parallel time room.  He looks in there and is shocked to
   see what looks like himself in there talking to a young blond woman.  The
   "other Gabriel" asks the woman, whom he refers to as "Stella", if she
   knows where his mother keeps the key to the liquor cabinet.  She replies
   that she doesn't know.  He remarks, "You must've heard that your predeces-
   sor was fired for telling me..." and leaves.  Stella goes and starts to
   close the doors through which Gabriel is looking but suddenly stops and
   gasps, "What are you doing hiding behind the door?!  What are you doing
   with that knife?"  Whoever is behind the door closes it.  Stella screams.

     Gabriel exclaims, "What's going on in there?" and opens the door, but
   the room is dark and unfurnished again...
      Quentin and Joanna return to the storehouse on the docks. Leticia is
   there.  She tells them Julia is in the next room treating Desmond.  She
   leaves.  Quentin tells Joanna he's got to go to Collinwood and find Daphne.
   Joanna convinces him he can't, that that's the first place the police 
   would expect him to go, that they've probably go the grounds surrounded, 
   waiting for him to show up.  She volunteers to go instead.
      At Collinwood, Gabriel goes to check out Daphne.  He stares at her and
   remarks on how beautiful she is. N ervously, she tries to use flattery.
   She tells him she's never realized what an attractive man he was while
   he was in a wheelchair. H e tries to kiss her, but she turns her head in
   disgust, saying, "Ughhhhh!!!"  He puts the gag back on her and angrily says,
   "You were lying to me!"  He leaves, saying, "I'll be back!".  Daphne notices
   that he has left the candle burning.  She slides the chair over to the
   table and start to burn the ropes tying her left hand.
      Joanna goes to Collinwood and asks Gabriel about Daphne again, saying
   Quentin had told her to come to him.  Gabriel tells her that he suspects
   that Gerard kidnapped her.
      Daphne sucessfully burns through the rope binding her left hand.  She
   uses her free hand to untie herself. She goes and tries the door, but
   finds it locked.  She tries the window and finds that it won't open
   either.  She desperately looks around and finds what looks like a bell
   pull to summon servants.  She pulls it, but it just breaks and falls down.
   She sees a lever that was hidden by the bell pull . She pulls it and a
   secret panel opens.  She goes through it and closes it. 
      Joanna asks Gabriel if she thinks Gerard might harm Daphne.  Gabriel
   replies that he doesn't think so, that he thinks Gerard did it just to
   torment Quentin, to make he doesn't get to see Daphne before he is 
   executed.  Joanna asks,"Do you think he might be holding her in the East
   Wing?  I'm sure I heard a noise there last night."  Gabriel replies,
   "No", then suddenly remarks, "You know, maybe I was wrong about Gerard
   taking her . Maybe she left of her own will."  He suggests to Joanna that
   she go to Daphne's room and look for a note or something that might 
   indicate that this is the case. 
      Daphne wanders through the secret passages.  She sees a picture on the
   wall and notices that she's seen it before . She gasps, "Oh, no. I'm going
   around in circles!  I'm lost!"
      While Joanna is looking through Daphne's room, Gabriel rushes to move
   Daphne, but finds her gone.  He notices that the bell pull is down and the
   lever in plain sight.  He pulls the lever . The secret panel opens and he
   goes inside.
      Joanna, having searched Daphne's room and found nothing, decides to
   check out her hunch about the East Wing and goes there to investigate.
   She goes into the room where Daphne was being held and finds the ropes
   which bound her to the chair and a plate containing the remains of some
   food. She thinks to herself, "She was here!  She was being held in this
   room!"
      Daphne, still wandering through the secret passages, hears a sound
   and quickly hides behind a column.  She sees Gabriel walk by...
      At the storehouse, Quentin remarks, "Why isn't Joanna back yet?  Maybe
   Gerard's got her!  I've got to go and help her!", but Leticia convinces
   him to wait a little longer, saying it's too dangerous for him to go with
   the police out looking for him.
      Joanna wanders through the East Wing, looking for Daphne.  She hears
   voices.  She is startled to find the voices coming from a brightly lit,
   sumtuously furnished room.  She is even more startled to find what look
   like Leticia and Gabriel in there.  She exclaims, "Gabriel!  You're out of
   your wheelchair!" but is surpised to find that he doesn't seem to hear
   her.  She tries to walk into the room, but finds that she cannot.  The woman
   asks the man where Stella is.  The man, addressing the woman as "Melanie",
   replies that he doesnt' know, that she probably decided she didn't like
   it here and left without telling anyone.  Joanna wonders why "Gabriel"
   called Leticia "Melanie".
      Daphne, still wandering through the secret passages looking for a way
   out, sees a flash of lightning (It's storming outside.)  She wonders where
   it could be coming from and looks around. T here are more lightning flashes
   and sees that they are coming from a grilled window in an iron door.
   Realizing that the door must open to the outside, she quickly goes to it
   and tries it. She opens it and goes outside, but only walks a short
   distance before she is grabbed by Gabriel....

      Gabriel starts to strangle. The ghost of his father Daniel Collins
   suddenly appears. Gabriel lets go of Daphne. She drops to the ground
   unconscious. The ghost announces, "I have come for you, Gabriel, just as I
   have promised!  You will kill no more!" Gabriel, terrified, runs off.
      Gabriel runs into Collinwood and into the drawing room.  He is shocked
   to find Daniel already.  He runs out of the drawing room into the foyer,
   but finds Daniel standing on the stairs.
      Outside, Daphne regains consciousness.
      Gabriel runs into the paralell time room, seeing it as a way of
   escaping. He begs, "Change!  Please change now!"  But the room does not
   change.  Instead, Daniel appears and repeats his vow to kill him.  Gabriel
   flees.
      Daphne runs into Collinwood through the front door. Joanna happens
   to be coming down the stairs at the same time and exclaims, "Daphne!".
   Daphne runs to her and cries, "It was Gabriel!  He can walk!  We've got
   to get out of here, he'll kill us all!"
      Gabriel runs through the house, vainly trying to escape from his
   father's ghost, but everywhere he goes, Daniel!  Finally, he makes the
   mistake of going out onto the parapet.  Daniel's ghost appears and causes
   him to fall over.
      Daphne, having calmed down somewhat, tells Joanna she's got to go and
   visit Quentin in jail.  Joanna tells her Quentin is now safe, that he's
   escaped and hiding out at Indian Cove.  Daphne asks, "If he's escaped
   from prison, why is he still here in Collinsport?  Why hasn't he left
   town?" Joanna answers that Quentin refused to leave while she, Daphne,
   was missing.  Daphne feels bad about this.  Julia walks in through the
   front door and sees Joanna and Daphne.  Daphne tells her that it was
   Gabriel, and again warns that they must leave before he kills them all.
   Julia tells her they needn't worry about that, that she's just found
   Gabriel outside, that he had apparently fallen from the parapet and is
   dead.
      Quentin and Desmond are in the storehouse at Indian Cove. Quentin
   looks out the window and sees two men approaching.  He warns Desmond that
   two men are coming and that they might have to fight.  Desmond replies
   that he won't be much use in a fight his condition. Quentin continues to
   look out the window and tells Desmond that the two men have just left,
   that they must have just been fishermen.  Joanna comes and tells them that
   Daphne's now safe at Collinwood.  She tells them about Gabriel being behind
   it all.  She tells him he's in the clear now that it's known that Gabriel
   killed Randall Drew, but Quentin points out that he isn't, that he wasn't
   convicted of the murder of Randall Drew, but for Witchcraft.  He tells
   her he's got to visit Daphne at Collinwood.  She tries to argue him out
   of it, saying he has to worry about not only the police, but also
   Gerard and Samantha, both of whom would probably turn him in.  But he
   insists. Joanna tells him she'll tell Joanna he'll be coming.  They
   decide on a time and place.
      Joanna returns to Collinwood and tells Daphne about Quentin coming
   tonight. She then tells Daphne she has come to accept the fact that it is
   she who Quentin loves, that she cannot relive the past.  Julia comes in,
   sees Daphne up, and tells her she must go lie down and rest.  Daphne
   goes upstairs to her room.  Joanna mentions to Julia that this is a strange
   house.  She tells her about the strange room she ran across in the East
   Wing, about how she saw people inside talking and tried to go in but
   couldn't.  Julia explains paralell time to her and tells her that the room
   is a portal to it.  Julia asks exactly what she saw.  Joanna tells her.
      Julia goes to the paralell time room.  Standing outside, she sees a
   man who looks just like Desmond standing inside.  A woman who looks just
   like her walks into the room and demands to know what he is doing in
   there.  The man tells her, "My name is Kendrick Young and I'm here to look
   for my sister Stella."  He tells her that he had asked the servants down-
   stairs about her but they told him they didn't know where she was and
   suggested he come up here, that there might be a Collins up here who
   could tell him.  He asks if she is a Collins.  She replies that she is.
   He tells her that his sister had written him a letter inviting him to
   visit her at Collinsport, that after he accepted her invitation, she wrote
   him back telling him she was excited about his visit and had already
   booked a room for him at the Inn in anticipation, that she would meet him
   at the Inn when he came.  He tells her that when he came, he waited all
   day at the Inn for his sister but she never came, that he became worried
   that something had happened to her because she knew the day he was coming.
   "Julia" replies that she doesn't know where Stella is, that she's a
   flighty girl who left a few days ago, saying she didn't like it here and
   wanted to find another job.  Kendrick tells her he doesn't believe that,
   that that's not the type of thing his sister would do. "Julia" replies
   that she did tells him to leave.  He does, vowing to find out the truth.
   "Julia" then closes the door through which Julia is looking. Julia opens
   the doors, but finds the room dark and empty.
      Later, Quentin comes onto the Collins property and meets Joanna in the
   woods outside the house.  Joanna tells him that Daphne is inside waiting
   for him in the East Wing.  She tells him to be careful, that Gerard and
   Samantha have just returned home, that he should go in through the back
   entrance to avoid them.
      Quentin goes into Collinwood and into the East Wing and meets Daphne
   there.  They embrace.  Quentin looks around, then, telling Daphne they
   would be safer in a room than out here in the hallway, opens a door and
   pulls her in with him.  Daphne looks around.  Suddenly recognizing that
   they're in the parallel time room, she exclaims, "Quentin!  We've got to
   get out of here!  It's not safe in here!"  Quentin asks what she means,
   but before she can answer, the room changes to parallel time and suddenly
   becomes well lit and furnished. Quentin, surprised, asks, "What happened?"
   Daphne gasps,"Oh, no! We're trapped in another time!"

      Quentin asks Daphne what she means.  Daphne tells him what Julia and
   Stokes had told her about paralell time.  Quentin exclaims, "Weitzman's
   theory!" and tells her a professor named Weitzman had theorized about
   paralell bands of time. T hey hear someone coming and hide.  Morgan Collins
   and Catharine Harridge(Lara Parker) come in.  Moragn tells Catharine he
   wants a decision from her before she leaves Collinwood tonight. He leaves.
   There's a knock at the door. Catharine answers. It's Samantha. Catharine
   asks where she's been.  Samantha explains that she's been taking care of
   Justin.  Catharine asks how Justin is.  Samantha tells her he is still
   paralyzed, just as he has been since the accident, unable even to talk.
   She remarks that everyone is waiting for the day when he'll be able to
   talk and tell them what happened to him.  Samantha tells Catharine that
   she's heard that Morgan has asked her to marry him.  She warns her, "If
   you say yes, don't let him bring you to live in this house!".  Catharine
   asks why, saying she's always dreamed of living at Collinwood. Samantha
   replies, "You only see Collinwood as it appears, not as it really is.
   You'd be miserable here!"  Morgan returns and Samantha leaves.  He asks
   Catherine what she and Samantha were talking about. Catharine lies that
   they were just making conversation. Morgan warns, "Don't listen to
   anything she might tell you about me.  She hates me."  He complains that
   he has a headache and, remarking, "I have some headache pills in here"
   starts to walk right to where Quentin and Daphne are hiding.  But Catharine
   suddenly says, "Wait!   have something that will cure your headache even
   better than pills. The answer is "yes." I will marry you!" He embraces her
   joyfully. The 'other' Daphne comes into the room. They tell her about their
   engagement and she congratulates them, hugging Catharine. Suddenly, the
   room becomes dark and empty again.  Daphne and Quentin wonder what happened.
   Quentin theorizes that the they snapped back into their time because the
   other Daphne had come into the room and both Daphne's could not exist
   toghetier in the same time and place.*  They leave the room.  Quentin tells
   Daphne that Barnabas has exhausted all his appeals. He tells her there's no
   more hope and he'll have to flee Collinsport.  He asks her if she'll join
   him. She replies, "Yes". Joanna comes in and tells Quentin he'd better
   leave now.
     Later, down in the drawing room,  Daphne explains to Gerard how Gabriel
   had told her while he was holding her how it was he who had tried to kill
   him, Gerard.  Samantha comes in. Gerard and Daphne leave. Joanna comes
   in and tells Samantha, "There's some unfinished business we've got to
   attend to".  She tells her she knows it was she who was sending the letters
   to Quentin and Daphne, that she must have at first stolen the letters
   from her belongings sent from the asylum and sent them, then learned how
   to forge her handwriting and started writing them herself. Samantha denies
   this, but when Joanna continues to press her, she finally blurts out, "All
   right!  It was me!"  She exclaims, "You can stop pretending now.  I know
   you remember our last meeting on the hill,  I know you remember how I
   pushed you off the cliff!  I don't know how you managed to survive, but
   you won't survive this time!"  She pulls a gun from out of a drawer and
   shoots her.  Gerard, hearing the gunshot, comes running in and exclaims,
   "What happened?!"  Joanna, standing there unhurt, calmly replies, "Mrs.
   Collins tried to kill me, but she missed."  Samantha hysterically shouts,
   "No I didn't, I couldn't have.  She can't be killed because she's already
   dead!" and runs out of the room.  Gerard runs after her.
      Samantha and Gerard go the the cemetary and dig up Joanna's coffin.
   It is empty. Samantha tells Gerard that this proves Joanna is really
   dead. Gerard is doubtful, saying there must be some other explanation.
   He points out to Samantha that Joanna couldn't have come back from the
   dead, that she is young and beautiful, that if she had come back from 
   the dead, that she would be a "decomposed mess".
      Later, at Collinwood, Samantha finds a letter to her on the table by
   the wall in the foyer.  She opens it and reads it.  It says,"I looked for
   you in your room but couldn't find you.  I have discovered some important
   information that will solve the mystery of Joanna.  Please come meet me
   at Widow's hill."  She quickly leaves to go to Widow's hill.  In her haste,
   she drops the letter in the foyer near the stairs.
      Samantha goes to Widow's hill and waits.  She hears a sound and calls
   out, "Gerard?".  But it is not Gerard.  It is Joanna. Samantha gasps,
   "YOU!"  Joanna replies, "Yes.  You're not the only one who can forge
   letters. You brought it all out into the open earlier.  You admitted you
   killed me.  Now I shall tell you the truth.  You did not fail when you t
   ried to kill me, just as I shall not fail tonight."  Samantha gasps, "But
   how can you look as you do if you are dead?!"  Joanna answers, "I appear
   to you as I choose to appear to you.  Now I will appear to you as I really
   look, the way you will look!" She turns into a "decomposed mess". Samantha
   screams. 
   
   * Hmmm. Julia managed not only to exist in the same room as her double,
     she managed to kill her...

       Terrified, Samantha turns and tries to run from the rotted form
    of Joanna, but accidently trips and falls off the cliff. Joanna turns
    back into her young, beautiful form. She looks over the edge of the
    cliff with a look of great satisfaction on her face and leaves.
       At Collinwood, Gerard finds the letter Samantha had dropped. He reads
    it. Joanna returns. Gerard asks her where she's been. She tells him she
    just went out for a breath of air. He asks her if she's seen Samantha. 
    She replies that she hasn't. She asks, "Is anything wrong?" Gerard 
    replies that there is and shows her the letter. She remarks, "That's
    from you." Gerard tells her that it isn't, that someone forged it.
    Joanna, pretending to know nothing about it, replies, "My, how curious..."
       At the storehouse at Indian cove, Julia examines Desmond and tells
    Quentin that Desmond will be able to travel tomorrow morning.
       The next morning, Daphne walks into the drawing room and is surprised
    to find Joanna in there. She asks what she is doing there so early.
    Joanna replies that she stayed so late last night, she decided to wait
    until morning.  Daphne hears the sound of the door opening and looks
    into the foyer to see who it is. She gasps, "Gerard!  What happened?"
    Gerard, carrying Samantha in his arms, tells them, "I found her at the
    bottom of Widow's Hill. She's dead...."
       Daphne and Joanna are alone in the drawing room. Daphne remarks,
    "Edith, Gabriel, and now Samantha! Three deaths in 24 hours! What's
    going on?"  Gerard returns and tells them he's sent a servant to tell
    the police.  Daphne asks, "How did you find her?"  Gerard shows her the
    letter he found and tells her he didn't write it, that someone must have
    forged it to lure Samantha to Widow's Hill.  Daphne asks if he has any
    idea who it might be. Gerard replies that he doesn't.  He remarks, "Whoever
    it is, I know one thing, it'll look bad for Quentin. She testified against
    him. That gives him a motive."
       Joanna goes to the storehouse and tells Quentin that Samantha is
    dead. She tells him that Gerard had said that he would probably be
    blamed for it. Quentin sarcastically remarks, "I'm sure he'll do
    everything he can to make sure I am."  He tells her he's going to have to
    change his plans, that he'll have to go to Boston to get Tad now that
    Samantha's dead.  He tells her that they're going to leave at dawn and
    to go tell Daphne to come to the storehouse at 3:00 in the morning.
       Julia returns to Collinwood and runs into Gerard in the foyer. Gerard
    remarks, "Been out treating a patient?" Julia replies, "Yes I have."
    Gerard asks, "The patient's name wouldn't happen to be Desmond Collins,
    would it?" Julia replies that it isn't. Gerard tells her he doesn't
    believe her, that Desmond had been wounded during the escape and that
    she's the logical person they would've gone to for help. Julia replies,
    "Yes. That's why they would've found someone else. I'm too obvious".
       Daphne is about to go into her room, but looks at the door going to
    the East Wing and, overcome by curiosity, goes to look into the paralell
    time room. Inside, she sees a woman who looks like Julia looking out the
    window through a pair of opera glasses. Outside, Stella's brother is
    asking someone who looks like Samantha what happened to his sister. 
    "Samantha" says that she doesn't know, that Stella had just left without
    telling anyone where she was going and without leaving a forwarding
    address. "Samantha" comes back upstairs. "Julia" asks her why she was
    talking to Stella's brother. "Samantha" tells her that he had sent her
    a note asking her to come outside and tell him about Stella. "Julia" asks
    her what she told him. She replies she told him exactly what she, 
    "Julia", had told her happened to Stella.  "Julia" tells her to tell her
    exactly what happened outside and goes and closes the doors. Daphne tries
    to open them but finds that they are locked.
       Joanna comes and tells Daphne the Quentin wants her to come to the
    storehouse at 3:00.
       It is 8:45. Julia leaves Collinwood. Unbeknownst to her, Gerard is in 
    drawing room spying on her through a crack in the door...
       Julia arrives at the storehouse. She tells Quentin she wants to  
    examine Desmond one last time to make sure he's all right. She tells him
    Gerard is starting to suspect that she's been treating Desmond. Quentin,
    worried, asks, "There's no chance he could've followed you, is there?"
    Julia replies that she doesn't think so, but in case he did, she came by
    way of a particularly circuitous route guaranteed to lose him. There's
    a knock at the door. Quentin quickly hides. Julia answers the door. It
    is Daphne. Quentin comes back out. Julia goes into the other room to 
    examine Desmond. Quentin asks Daphne why she came here so early, saying 
    it isn't 3:00 yet. She tells him she couldn't wait, that she realized 
    she and Gerard were the only ones in the house, couldn't stand it and 
    left. Quentin asks her if she'll marry her when they get to Boston. She 
    tells him she will. They kiss. Unknown to them, Gerard is outside 
    eavesdropping on them through the window...

       Daphne goes to Rose Cottage and tells Leticia that they're leaving at 
    3:00.  Leticia, who's going too because she's in love with Desmond, asks
    Daphne, "Do you think I should tell Flora I'm going?" Flora unexpectedly
    comes into the room and asks "Going where?"  When they don't answer, she
    tells Leticia she's known for some time that she's been going to visit
    Desmond. She tells her that she can tell from what she heard of their
    conversation that something has changed, that they must be planning to
    flee. She asks them to tell her where Desmond is so she can go say
    goodbye to her son.  Leticia tells her, "If we tell you, you must be
    careful not to tell Gerard!" She tells them she won't. They tell her
    where Desmond is.  Daphne tells Leticia she'll have to go back to
    Collinwood, that they'll need some money and Quentin has given her the
    combination to his safe.
       Gerard returns to Collinwood and finds Charles Dawson waiting for him
    in the foyer. Dawson, in a panicky voice, asks, "Why don't you use your
    powers to do something about Quentin?  He escaped three days ago. He
    promised vengeance against me!" Gerard replies that he'll do something
    tomorrow morning.  Dawsons asks, "Why wait?"  Gerard replies, "Quentin
    hasn't suffered enough yet. I have a marvelous plan, but it involves
    someone else."  Dawson asks, "Who?". The front door opens and Daphne walks
    in.  Gerard smiles and remarks, "My dear, why we were just talking about
    you!"  Daphne excuses herself and goes upstairs.  Gerard tells Dawson
    that he'll need him to prepare some papers for him.  He starts to tell
    him his plan...
       Leticia goes to Collinwood to see how Daphne is doing. She finds her
    there alone. Daphne tells her that Gerard and Charles Dawson had been
    here, but that they had just left. Leticia tells her to hurry up and
    get the money from Quentin's safe. Daphne leaves to do so.
       Gerard returns and is surprised to find Leticia in the drawing room.
    He pours a couple of glasses of champagne and tells Leticia they have
    something to toast. Leticia asks what.  Gerard replies, "A wedding!"
       Daphne, in the East Wing, hears music again and opens the doors to
    the paralell time room.  Inside, she sees a woman who looks like "Flora"
    talking to someone who looks just like Leticia whom she addresses as
    "Melanie". "Flora" asks Melanie, "Have you been to the West Wing?
    There's something in your expression that makes me think you have."
    Melanie, shocked, replies, "Of course not!  I never go there!" Flora
    tells her, "It's good that you don't. We found you father there last
    night. We found him in the cooridor outside that room." Melanie,
    shocked, exclaims, "No!  He musn't die!  We can't let him! We can't have
    another lottery!" "Flora" tells her not to talk about the lottery, that
    she doesn't want to have to hear about it...
       Having seen Desmond, Flora, at the storehouse, tells Quentin she
    thinks they should wait awhile, that she doesn't think Desmond is well
    enough to travel. Quentin disagrees, saying it's too dangerous to stay
    here much longer, that Julia had pronounced Desmond fit to travel. They
    argue about this.
       At Collinwood, Gerard casts a spell to cause Daphne to fall asleep
    and have a dream, saying, "This will be the final dream, Daphne, the
    one that will convince you that we must marry!"  Daphne falls asleep and
    has a dream in which she is in the foyer, luggage at her feet, all
    packed up and ready to go somewhere.  Gerard comes in and asks her where
    she's going.  She replies, "I don't know. I don't remember..." He tells
    her to stay with him forever.  She replies that she will.  They kiss.
       Daphne awakens and goes to Gerard.  He asks her to marry him.  She
    tells him she will.  He tells her he'll get a minister to marry them
    tonight.
       Leticia goes to Daphne and asks her, "We've got to hurry up and go!"
    Dapne replies that she's not going, that she's changed her mind, that
    she's going to stay and marry Gerard. Leticia, shocked, runs out the
    door.
       Leticia hurries to the storehouse and tells Quentin that Daphne has
    decided to stay and marry Gerard. Telling her that Gerard must have cast
    a spell on Daphne to cause her to do this, he rushes out of the
    storehouse over Leticia's objections that it's too dangerous for him
    to go to Collinwood.
       At Collinwood, a minister is marrying Daphne and Gerard. Just as he
    finishes the ceremony and says, "I now pronounce you husband and wife,"
    Quentin bursts into the drawing room and exclaims, "NO!"

       The minister, shocked, excuses himself and leaves. Quentin tells
    Gerard, "I know you put a spell on Daphne to make her marry you. I'm
    going to take her with me, and if you try to stop me, I'll kill you!"
    Quentin is startled to hear a voice from behind him say, "Quentin 
    Collins, your killing days are over!" He turns and sees Lamar Trask 
    standing there holding a pistol. Quentin remarks, "So this was a trap!"
    Gerard replies that it was. Daphne awakens from the spell. Gerard tells
    Trask to take Quentin away and takes a dazed Daphne upstairs.
       Upstairs, Daphne, now fully "awake" has an argument with Gerard, 
    telling him, "I'll never stop loving Quentin!" She tells him she knows
    he's really Judah Zachary and not Gerard, that she'll never love him.
    He tells her he'll give her time to think about it and leaves, locking
    the door behind him.
       Barnabas, having been told about the paralell time room from Julia,
    goes to there to investigate. He opens the doors and finds that a woman
    who looks like Angelique is talking to a woman who looks like Daphne.
    However, the woman who looks like Daphne addresses the woman who looks 
    like Angelique as "Catharine". "Daphne" tells Catharine that a strange
    thing happened to her while she was in town today, that old Ezra
    Robinson came up to her and said something strange to her, that Ezra,
    who had heard that she, Catharine, was going to marry Morgan Collins,
    had told her to warn her not to move into Collinwood after she married,
    that it would be tragic if she did, that there's a haunted room at
    Collinwood, that the entire family lives in fear, that there's a legend
    about Collinwood. Catharine interrupts, saying "Ezra Robinson is a
    muddle-headed old fool!" "Daphne" continues, saying that Ezra had said
    thatthere's a legend that once every generation, the Collins' have a
    lottery, that the person who "wins" the lottery has to spend a night in
    the haunted room, that everyone who's ever done so has ended up either
    dead or crazy, that the last person who did so was Justin Collins.
    Catharine pooh poohs the idea that Justin is paralyzed because he spent a
    night in some haunted room, saying Justin became paralyzed as a result of
    an accident. "Daphne" points out that no one will ever say what the
    accident was or when it happened. Quentin comes into the room and Catharine
    leaves. "Daphne" asks how much of their conversation he heard. He answers,
    "Enough! Do know what I was away seven years for? Manslaughter! I had a
    fight with a man who was talking the way you were and accidently killed
    him. I don't ever want you to say those things again!"
       Angelique goes to Collinwood. She runs into Gerard in the foyer. 
    Angelique tells Gerard she's looking for Barnabas and asks if he knows
    where he is. Gerard replies that he doesn't know. Angelique asks if it's
    OK if she waits in the drawing room. Gerard replies that it is. He
    says, "Oh, by the way, I have some new for you. Quentin was re-captured
    today and taken back to jail. This happened just after Daphne and I
    were married."  Barnabas, who has just come out of the bedroom hall onto
    the landing and is at the top of the stairs, hears this and is shocked.
       Barnabas quickly goes to the jail to see Quentin. Barnabas tells him
    they've got to do something, that there's still time. Quentin,
    despondent, tells him not to bother, that there's nothing they can do.
    Lamar Trask walks in, smiling broadly. He tells them that Judge Vail
    has just decided to move the execution up to tomorrow morning...
       Barnabas returns to Collinwood and tells Angelique that the execution
    has been moved ahead to tomorrow morning.  He begs her to use her powers
    to do something to save him. She refuses, saying she's not powerful enough
    and fears the greater power of Judah Zachary.  Barnabas, upset that she
    won't even try, tells her that though they may have become good friends,
    they will never be anything more, that he can never love her, that she is
    still a witch and will always be a witch, that she cares nothing about the
    suffering of others.  He tells her, "I'm afraid you'll never change" and
    leaves.
       Gerard goes into the room where he's locked Daphne. She tells him she
    hasn't changed her mind and never will. Gerard tells her he came to tell
    her Quentin will be executed tomorrow.
       Downstairs, Angelique looks at the portrait of Barnabas and says,
    "Yes, I will help Quentin, but what I do I will be doing it for your
    love. If I cannot prove myself to you this way, then there is no way..."
    She goes into the drawing room and starts to cast a spell by the fire.
    She takes out a doll and sticks a pin in it.
       Upstairs, Gerard suddenly grabs his chest in pain. He quickly runs out
    of the room.
       In the drawing room, Angelique takes another pin and prepares to
    administer the coup de grace.  Suddenly, the doors burst open. Angelique
    turns around and sees that it is Gerard.  Angelique, stands up, dropping
    the doll, a look of terror on her face.  Gerard says, "So, it is you,
    Miranda!  You have used your powers for the last time!"

       Gerard goes to Angelique and forces her to look into his eyes. He
    tells her he will take away the powers which he gave her long ago. He 
    says a few words saying her powers will disappear then tells her that it 
    is done, he has taken her powers away. Feeling no different, she tells 
    him she doesn't believe he could've taken her powers away so easily. He 
    tells her he will prove it to her. He gives her back her voodoo doll and 
    his handkerchief and tells her to try something. She takes the hand-
    kerchief, wraps it around the throat of the doll and tightens it, but 
    nothing happens to Gerard. He drags her away.
       Barnabas goes to look into the paralell time room again. There, he
    sees Melanie taking care of an old man in a wheelchair whom she adresses
    as "Father".  Catharine comes running in and excitedly tells Miranda that
    her wedding invitations have come. Miranda asks, "Are you going to send
    one to Bramwell?" Catharine replies, "I don't know where he is. He's been
    gone for five years". Miranda reminds her that there are rumors that he
    is coming back. Catharine says that she doesn't know if they're true.
    Miranda asks, "If the rumors are true, will you send him one?" Catharine
    replies that she'd have to talk to Morgan about that, that if Morgan says
    OK, she'll send him one. They show one of the invitations to the old man.
    Upon seeing it, a look of shock comes across his face. He starts to have
    an attack and grabs his chest in pain. Melanie tells Catharine to go
    get his pills. Catharine leaves to do so. The old man exclaims, "NO!
    She must not marry him!  We can't have any strangers in here!  The room!
    No one must know!  Close the door!  We must talk privately!"  Melanie
    closes the door and Barnabas sees no more.
       Gerard takes Angelique to Charles Dawson's house and tells him to
    hold her prisoner there. Dawson asks he doesn't kill her now. Gerard
    replies, "I want to let her live until after Quentin's execution, I want
    her to know that I have gotten my final triumph." He adds ominously, 
    "After Quentin has been beheaded, I will come back and give her my full 
    attention! I've been waiting for this for a long time..." 
       Leticia goes to visit Desmond in jail for the last time. Desmond gives
    her a letter, saying it changes his will to give everything to her, that
    he wants her to have the kind of life she would've had if they had
    married. Leticia tells him not to lose hope, that Flora has written to
    the governor complaining that they can't execute him without a trial.
    Desmond replies that there is no hope, that the judges have dug up an 
    old law from 1690 stating that a followers of a convicted warlock can
    be executed without benefit of trial. Leticia asks him to marry her now.
    Desmond refuses, saying it would be too dangerous, that it might cause
    her trouble, that it might cause people to think she's part of the coven.
    Leticia tells him that if they can't call someone to marry them, they
    can at least say the vows to each other. They do, then kiss.
       Barnabas visits Quentin in prison. He promises to find and free Daphne
    and "take care" of Gerard. Quentin tells him he feels worse about Desmond,
    that he just tried to help and now finds himself facing execution too.
    He asks Barnabas to take care of Tad, to let him know his father is
    innocent. Barnabas promises to. Quentin asks how much time is left.
    Barnabas replies, "About 45 minutes". Quentin remarks, "It's strange, but
    I'm not afraid at all. Tell Tad his father wasn't afraid..."  
       Angelique tries to seduce Dawson. It looks like she's succeeding, but
    just as he is about to kiss her, he pulls back and says, "No. I'm more
    afraid of Judah Zachary that I am attracted to you."  She tries a more
    direct approach.  When his back is turned, she grabs a heavy candlestick
    and hits him over the head with it. She bends down to examine him and
    finds that he's dead.
       Gerard is in the foyer at Collinwood, looking at the grandfather
    clock. He smiles and says to himself, "Only 20 minutes left till Quentin
    is beheaded!"  Leticia comes in through the front doors. She exclaims,
    "You're Judah Zachary!  It's your doing that Quentin and Desmond are going
    to die.  Well, so are you!" She pulls out a knife and tries to stab him,
    but he grabs her by the wrist and easily disarms her.  He leaves. 
       Quentin and Desmond have now both been put in the same cell to await
    execution. Quentin tells Desmond he feels bad for putting him into this
    mess. Desmond replies that it wasn't his fault and jokes that it is he
    who should apoligize, that he was the best man at his wedding and 
    should've done something to prevent him from marrying Samantha. Some
    guards come and take them away.
       Quentin and Desmond are taken to the place of execution. Quentin sees
    Gerard there.  Gerard smiles and says,"I wouldn't have missed this for
    the world, Quentin!"  Quentin, infuriated, tries to get to him but his
    held back by the guards.  He is taken to the execution block and put
    into position.  The masked executioner, a very muscular man, lifts the
    axe and prepares to strike...

       Angelique suddenly comes running in and shouts, "Stop! You have the 
    wrong man! It's Gerard Stiles who's possessed by Judah Zachary, not 
    Quentin Collins!" Judge Vail stops the execution, saying he wants to 
    hear what she has to say first. He asks her who she is. She tells him
    she's Valerie Collins. Barnabas, who's in the audience, steps forward
    and tells the judge she's his wife. Judge Vail asks Angelique what proof
    she has. She takes the cloth covering a box she has brought with her
    and announces, "This! The head of Judah Zachary! I found it in Charles
    Dawson's house!" Lamar Trask, who's also in the audience, objects, saying
    it proves nothing, that she could've found it anywhere and said she found
    it in Dawson's house. The judge asks Angelique why she would've been in
    Dawson's house. She explains that she was being held prisoner there, that
    she hit Dawson on the head with a heavy candlestick with the intention of
    just knocking him out, but found that she had killed him, that after 
    doing so, she searched his house and found the head. Judge Vail asks why
    she was being held prisoner. Angelique looks over at Barnabas then turns
    back and decides to tell the whole truth. She tells the Judge that Dawson
    was holding her prisoner on orders of Judah Zachary/Gerard because she
    was one of Zachary's original followers, that she betrayed him. The judge
    finds it hard to believe that she could've been alive in 1692. She is
    about to explain when suddenly Desmond lunges at a guard, takes the gun
    from his holster and shoots Gerard in the chest. Gerard falls to the
    ground.  Suddenly, the head of Judah Zachary starts to glow. Barnabas sees
    this and exclaims "Look!", pointing at the head. Everyone does and sees
    the head slowly become a skull. Barnabas exclaims that this proves that
    it was Gerard was who was possessed by the spirit of Judah Zachary, that
    when he died, so too did the head. Quentin goes to Gerard and finds that
    he is still alive. Gerard tells him, "Judah Zachary is dead and I am
    free! Forgive me, Quentin, for what I did. I wasn't myself..." Quentin
    tells him he understands.  Gerard expires.  Judge Vail proclaims Quentin
    and Desmond innocent and tells them they are free. Trask points
    at Angelique and demands "Wait! I demand that she, a self-proclaimed
    witch, be held!" Judge Vail replies that he will do so, saying, "She has
    some questions to answer..." Barnabas asks the judge to be allowed to
    speak to his wife for 5 minutes. The judge agrees to lets him do so.
    Barnabas goes to Angelique and thanks her for what she has just done. She
    asks him, "You know why I did this, don't you?" He replies that he does,
    but, with all that has happened, doesn't know what he feels yet. He vows
    to do whatever he can to help her. The guards take her away.
       Quentin, Desmond and Barnabas return to Collinwood. Desmond exclaims,
    "I can't believe it! It's all over!" Quentin tells him to go tell Leticia
    the good news while he and Barnabas look for Daphne. Desmond leaves.
    Quentin tells Barnabas, "You go search the East Wing. I'll search the
    rest of the house." They seperate to do so.
       Daphne hears a noise at the door of the room where she is being held.
    Someone is unlocking it. Thinking it is Gerard, she grabs a candlestick,
    goes to the side of the door, and prepares to hit him when he comes in.
    The door opens, but it is Quentin who comes in. She drops the candlestick
    and they embrace.
       Barnabas, searching the East Wing, walks by the paralell time room
    and hears some sounds inside. He opens the door. Catharine is in there.
    She is pacing the room, apparently thinking about something. A man comes
    into the room. Barnabas is shocked. The man looks just like him. Catharine
    sees the man and exclaims, "Bramwell!" The man says, "I have come back,
    just as I promised 5 years ago!". They kiss, but Catharine suddenly pulls
    away and says, "No, this is insane!" Bramwell asks her what's wrong.
    She tells him she is engaged to marry Morgan Collins.  Bramwell is
    shocked. He tells her she can't do this, that he thought she'd always
    love him. She tells him she loves Morgan and plans to marry him.  They
    argue about this.  Bramwell accuses Catherind of wanting a rich Collins
    and not a poor one. He complains that the Collins family hates him, just
    as they hated his father Barnabas. Catharine remarks, "Justin likes you".
    Barnabas replies, "Yes, he's an exception, but he had his accident before
    he could give me a fair share of the business, and now his sons are doing
    everything they can to make sure I remain a poor relation." He vows to
    bring the Collins family down.
       Barnabas comes downstairs. Quentin sees the strange look on his
    face and asks him what's wrong. He replies that he just saw something in
    the paralell time room, something that made him realize how much he
    loves someone. He leaves.
       Barnabas goes to Judge Vail to talk about Angelique, but the judge
    tells him he's too late, that she left 20 minutes ago. Barnabas asks him
    what he means. The judge replies that the tribunal questioned her and
    decided to free her.   
       At Collinwood, Quentin finds a letter addressed to him from Samantha
    which she never got the chance to mail. He opens it and reads it. In it,
    she tells him that she wanted to let him know that she wants him to know
    the truth about Tad, that it was only out of spite that she told him he
    wasn't really his son, that he is.
       Barnabas returns to Collinwood and finds Quentin and Daphne in the
    foyer dressed in travelling clothes. He asks them where they're going.
    Quentin replies, "We're going to Boston to get Tad, then get married",
    then asks, "Looking for Valerie?  She's in there." He motions toward the
    drawing room with his head.  Daphne and Quentin leave.  Barnabas goes into
    the drawing room.  Lamar Trask quietly comes out of the room under the
    stairs...
       Barnabas goes into the drawing room. He tells Angelique, "Now I 
    realize how I feel about you..."  But just as he is about to tell her,
    Trask comes into the room, pulls out a gun, shouts, "The judges
    wouln't hold you, but I'll take care of you!"  He exclaims "Die, witch!" 
    and shoots Angelique.

       Barnabas rushes Trask, diarms him and chokes him. Trask falls to 
    the ground. He calls out, "Julia!" and goes to Angelique. He holds her
    and tells her "You must not die! I love you!" but then sees she is
    already dead. He dejectedly says, "She's dead. I never had a chance to
    tell her I loved her. She never knew..." He hears a moaning sound, looks
    over and notices that Trask is not dead, but regaining consciousness.
    Trask gets up and runs. Barnabas chases him up the stairs, screaming,
    "You're going to pay for this with your life!" Trask runs into the East
    Wing. He finds a knife. When Barnabas catches up to him, Trask stabs him
    in the chest, but Barnabas manages to wrestle the knife from him and
    stabs him in the stomach. With the knife in his stomach, Trask runs. He
    ends up in the paralell time room. Suddenly, the room changes into
    paralell time. Barnabas, on the outside, sees Trask in paralell time.
    Suddenly, the room changes back to normal. Barnabas exclaims, "He's
    gone! He's trapped in that other time!"
       Barnabas goes back down to the drawing room and talks lovingly to the
    dead Angelique, telling her he never realized how much he loved her until
    now. Julia comes in and sees them. Julia notices Barnabas is wounded and 
    asks what happened.  Barnabas tells her. Julia tells him she'll go get
    her medical bag and leaves.
       At Rose Cottage, Desmond paces around nervously and asks Flora, "It's
    been over two hours!  Where could Leticia be?" Suddenly, he exclaims,
    "My God!  She was pretty depressed!  What if she tried to do something to
    herself!  I've got to go out and look for her!".  He prepares to leave,
    but Leticia comes in through the door. They are overjoyed to see each
    other and embrace. Flora remarks to Leticia, "I'm going to show you what
    a good mother-in-law I'm going to be. I know the first rule of being a
    good mother-in-law. I'm going to leave you two alone" and leaves. Leticia
    explains to Desmond that she was depressed and spent the night walking
    on the beach crying, that she eventually went into town, heard about him
    and Quentin there and rushed back. Desmond tells her he's going to take
    her to New York to get married.
       At Collinwood, Julia and Stokes are in the drawing room. Barnabas
    returns. He tells them that he has spoken to the police about Angelique
    and that they accepted his story. He tells them she'll be buried in the
    family mausoleum. Stokes tells him, "We must go back to our own time now.
    You've succeeded in changing the past. I wonder if it's had any effect.
    It's 1971 in our time now. I wonder if it's any different."  Desmond, who
    was in the foyer, apparently having come to Collinwood to tell them about
    him and Leticia going to New York to get married, comes into the drawing
    room and, having overhead them talking, exclaims, "What are you talking
    about??? 1971??? That's 140 years in the future!"  Julia explains to 
    him that they're fromt he future, that they used Quentin's staircase
    to travel back in time. Desmond, incredulous, exclaims, "Quentin's
    staircase is a joke!", but they manage to convince him they're telling
    the truth.  He tells them, "If Valerie's funeral is the only thing keeping
    you, Leticia and I will stay a few days to take care of the arrangements.
    You three can go now".  They tell him they will. 
       They go the the staircase through time. Barnabas tells Desmond the rest
    of the story, about how there's a room to parallel time in the East Wing,
    how Trask escaped through it. He tells him that Trask might find his way
    back out some time. Desmond promises to be on the lookout for him and
    to "take care" of him if he does. They tell him to destroy the staircase
    and after they leave.
       Barnabas, Julia and Stokes go up the staircase through time and go
    through the door. They find themselves in the hallway outside the
    playroom. They find that they have apparently succeeded. Collinwood is
    all right, that it is not in shambles. They look through the house but
    are surprised to find no one around.
        It is now 8:10. Barnabas, Julia and Stokes have now been back in 1971
    for over two hours. They are worried, wondering where everyone is. Julia
    remarks, "They've got to be all right. There's fresh food in the re-
    frigerator."  Finally, Elizabeth comes walking in the room. She exclaims,
    good naturedly, "Your all impossible!  Where have you been?  You're all
    late for the opening of the Historical Center.  I only came back here
    because Roger forgot his speech!"   Barnabas asks, "David and Hallie are
    already there?"  She replies that they are. Barnabas asks, "And Carolyn
    and Quentin?" Elizabeth replies that they are there too. She remarks, "You
    know, I was looking through the West Wing and found an old journal written
    by an ancestor of mine I never knew about before, a Flora Collins. I'm
    going to give it to the Historical Center."  As they all leave, Barnabas
    whispers to Julia that everyone's all right, that it appears that they've
    succeeded, that the ghosts of Gerard and Daphne never appeared in 1970.
       Back in 1840, Desmond finishes destroying the staircase with an ax.
    Leticia is in the drawing room, wondering where Desmond can be. Finally,
    Desmond comes out from the door under the stairs and goes into the
    drawing room. Leticia exclaims, "There you are!  Where have you been?
    I was worried something happened!"  Desmond replies, "Something has.
    There's a strange room in the East Wing. Something may be happening
    there."  They go to the East Wing. On the way, Desmond tells Leticia
    about the paralell time room.  She is astounded.  He tells her, "Wait till
    I tell you the rest of the story..."  At the paralell time room, they
    see Trask inside, lying on the floor, the handle of a knife sticking
    out of his stomach.  He gasps, "Help me!  Someone please help me!"  He
    collapses and stops moving. "Flora" comes in and finds him. "Julia"
    comes in moments after. Flora gasps, "Not again!  First Stella, now this
    man! Someone's certain to find out!" Julia tells her nobody will find
    out, all they have to do is secretly bury the body. Saying, "We'll have
    to do this quietly, she closes the doors so no one will hear.
       Having buried Trask, "Flora" and "Julia" return. Melanie comes running
    into the room and exclaims, "Father's had a second attack! He's dying!"
    "Julia" mutters, "Then the Lottery will happen again before the week is
    over..."

       Flora rushes out to see Justin. Melanie admonsishes Julia for talking
    about the Lottery. She moans, "He can't die. He's the only one who
    ever treated me like a real Collins, not like I was adopted..." Morgan
    comes in and tells Melanie Justin wants her. Melanie leaves. Morgan tells
    Julia he's thinking of moving his wedding date up so that he will be
    married to her before his father dies. Julia tells him, "NO! You can't
    do that!  If she becomes part of the family before he dies, she'll have
    to participate in the Lottery!"  Morgan replies that he's thinking of
    changing the Lottery so that only the men have to participate. Julia
    warns him against tampering with tradition.
       Catharine is living in a cottage. There's a knock at the door.
    Bramwell comes in and insists on talking to her. He tries to convince
    her not to marry Morgan, without success. She admits that part of the
    reason she wants to marry him is the lifestyle he can give her. Bramwell
    tells her if it's money she's interested in, he has made a great deal of
    money while away and already owns one ship, that as soon as this ship
    finishes its current voyage, he'll have enough money to buy another one.
    She still refuses. Morgan Collins comes in and exclaims, "Bramwell!"
    He orders him never to come here again. Bramwell replies, "As long as
    Catherine is living here, she has the right to say who will or will not
    come here. Let her decide." Catharine tells him never to come again.
    Bramwell angrily says, "You'll be sorry you said that. You'll change
    your mind!" and storms out. Morgan asks Catharine, "You used to love him.
    Do you still?" She replies, "No. You're the only one I love." They
    kiss. Morgan tells her that they must marry tonight. She asks,"Why?
    The invitations have already been printed announcing that it's next 
    month."  He replies that it's because his father is dying. Puzzled,
    Catharine asks, "I would think that the last thing you would want to 
    do is get married while your father is dying."  She asks him to explain
    why he does. He doesn't say anything. She asks if it has anything to do
    with the strange rumors about the family she has heard in town. He
    orders her never to talk about those rumors again. She tells him she 
    won't marry him tonight unless he tells her why.    
       Flora and Julia discuss the man who was killed. One of them remarks,
    "You've got to remember Justin as he was before he went into that room.
    It's not his fault he killed that man." They look through the wallet of 
    the man they buried. Flora notes that the man's name is Trask and says, 
    "He must be one of the Trasks who own the bakery in town", but then 
    notices that the first name is Lamar, and none of them is named Lamar. 
    Looking further, they find a business card that announces that Lamar 
    Trask owns a funeral parlor on Front Street. They are puzzled because 
    there is no funeral parlor on Front Street. They decide to burn the 
    wallet. They discuss Justin. Julia remarks, "He won't die tonight. No 
    one's seen the woman in white yet. The woman in white always appears 
    just before a person who's been that room dies.
       Morgan Collins goes to the old house and asks Bramwell to promise
    never to see Catharine again. Bramwell angrily refuses.
       Catharine goes to Collinwood to talk to Melanie. She tells her that
    Morgan wanted to get married tonight but refused to tell her why. Seeing
    the expression on Melanie's face when she tells her this, she asks, "You
    know, don't. Won't you tell me?" Melanie pauses and replies, "Yes. I
    will." But just as she is about to tell her, someone comes into the room
    and tells Melanie that they want her to go and read to Justin, that 
    when she did so earlier, it had a good effect on him.
       Morgan, returning to Collinwood, stares at it from the woods and 
    thinks about what a terrible place it is, about the terrible things that
    have happened there. Suddenly, he sees something, and a look of horror 
    comes across his face. He gasps, "The Woman in White! Oh, no, Father, 
    it'll be tonight!"

       Melanie, in Justin's room looking after him, looks out the window
    and sees the woman in white. Justin, seeing her shocked expression, 
    says, "What is it? The woman in white?"  Melainie lies that it isn't.
    He asks her why she looks so frightened then. She lies that the lightning
    outside frightened her. Not believing her, Justin goes to the window
    and sees the woman in white too...
       Downstairs in the drawing room, Gabriel, who's not supposed to drink,
    asks Morgan for the key to the liquor cabinet. In view of the 
    circumstances, Morgan gives it to him. Gabriel takes out a new, unopened
    bottle of rum, opens it and pours himself a glass. After drinking it,
    he tells Morgan he doesn't plan to participate in the lottery, that he
    plans to flee. Morgan grabs him and tells him he won't let him. Gabriel
    asks, "And how are you going to stop me?" Morgan replies that it would
    do no good to flee, "that he would know where you were." and leaves.
       Bramwell comes and finds Gabriel drinking alone in the drawing room.
    Bramwell asks to see Justin, but Gabriel refuses to let him, saying they
    want to let Justin die in peace. He remarks to Bramwell that now he's
    back, he'll have to participate in the lottery. Bramwell replies that
    he won't, that the Collins family had never done anything for him and
    he won't do anything for them. He tells him that the only thing he'll
    do is to grieve for Justin. He walks out of the drawing room and goes
    into the door under the stairs.
       Morgan and Melanie are upstairs watching over Justin, who's sleeping.
    Suddenly, he awakens and exclaims, "The room! She's here in the room,
    the woman in white!" Melanie looks around and tells him, "No she isn't,
    we're the only ones in here". He continues to insist that she's in there
    and starts to have another attack, but it soon stops. He orders Morgan
    to leave and let him speak to Melanie alone.
       Bramwell comes out of the door under the stairs. He has apparently
    gone to see Quentin, who accompanies him out. Quentin thanks him for
    his sympathy about Justin. They both go into the drawing room to wait
    with Gabriel for the inevitable.
       Justin tells Melanie, "The letter! Brutus Collins' letter in the
    safe! The lottery must happen again!"  He rushes out of the room, 
    shouting "I must go to that room!" 
       Justin runs into an unused part of the house, dark and covered with
    cobwebs. Just as he gets to the door of what must be "the room", Melanie 
    catches up with him and stops him from going in. Justin screams at the
    door, "No more! You can't take any more of us! Am I not enough?". He 
    has another attack, grasps his chest and falls to the ground.
       In the drawing room, Gabriel looks at the empty rum bottle he's 
    holding and says, "The bottle is empty!  Who'd believe that not long ago,
    it was full?"  He is quite drunk.  Morgan comes in and announces that
    Justin is dead.  Gabriel leaves to see their mother.  Bramwell leaves too,
    saying he wants to talk to Melanie.
       Bramwell tells Melanie that he thinks it would be best if she left
    Collinwood. She refuses.                                             
       It is midnight. Quentin and Gabriel are in the drawing room with 
    their father's coffin. Morgan comes in holding a piece of paper. He
    announces that it is Brutus Collins' letter from 1680.  He reads it to
    them,"To My Children: Our family is under a terrible curse. I am now
    spending the night in this room, waiting for our enemy. If I should 
    survive the night alive and undamaged, then the curse is over. If I 
    do not, then when I die, one of you will have to do what I am do now.
    You must decide fairly amongst yourselves who it shall be. I would 
    suggest a lottery. This must be done until someone survives a night in 
    the room. Oh, what a legacy it is I leave you!" Signed Brutus Collins,
    the 10th of March, 1680.  Quentin leaves.  Morgan takes a sheet of paper
    out of a desk drawer, cuts it into three equal strips from it, dips a 
    quill pen into a bottle of ink and writes an "X" on on of them.
