           But Barnabas comes to his senses, stops and says, "No! I
        can't do it! Josette, you must get away from here and from
        me".  Josette says, "I don't understand".  Barnabas tells her,
        "It is best that you don't understand.  I prefer it that way".
        Josette guesses, "Something has happened to you. Something
        has made you change".  Barnabas replies, "Yes. There has been a
        radical change in me.  That is why you must go away".  Josette
        asks, "What has happened?"  Barnabas replies, "I cannot tell you".
        Josette protests, "But you promised to come back to me".  Barnabas
        replies, "If I had known what it would be like, I would never have p
        romised".  Josette tells him, "I'll do anything to be with you!",
        but Barnabas replies, "I will not let you do what you would
        have to do to be with me".  Josette again protests, "But you
        promised to come back to me!"  Barnabas replies, "I have. Now go!"
        Josette says, "You must have some reason for saying these things!" 
        Barnabas replies, "I did not come back by choice. It happened 
        because of a curse, and we cannot be together.  You will go back 
        to Collinwood and we will not see one another again.  Goodbye, 
        Josette".  Josette exclaims, "I will not let you go!", but Barnabas 
        turns his back on her and refuses to speak to her further.
           Millicent is in the drawing room of Collinwood with Nathan
        Forbes.  Nathan is looking intently though a book.  Millicent asks,
        "Nathan, what are you looking for in that almanac?"  Nathan replies,
        "A good day".  Millicent asks, "A good day?"  Nathan replies, "You
        wouldn't want to be married in bad weather, would you?"  Millicent
        asks, "Why should the weather be so important?  Weddings are held 
        indoors".  Nathan replies, "Yes, but Nature should bless the wedding 
        with a day as beautiful as the bride!"  Millicent gushes, "Nathan, 
        you say such beautiful things!"  Nathan tells her, "And I've found 
        the perfect day.  The 2nd of March.  The almanac says that the 
        weather will be beautiful on that day".  Millicent protests, "But 
        that's only a month away!  I don't think cousin Joshua will consider 
        that a proper mourning period".  Nathan replies, "What's important
        is what we think".  Millicent asks, "Why the hurry?"  Nathan replies,
        "My duties here in Collinsport end in 2 months.  I may be sent 
        elsewhere after that".  Josette returns though the front door. 
        Millicent goes out into the foyer and asks her, "Have you been out, 
        Josette?"  Josette replies, "I went for a walk".  Nathan tells 
        Millicent it's late and tells her, "Goodnight.  I'll talk to you 
        tomorrow to decide on a definite date".  Josette asks, "Date?" 
        Millicent tells her, "I suppose you should be the first to know.
        Nathan and I have decided to get married!"  Josette asks, "Married?"
        in a somewhat dazed sounding voice.  Millicent asks her, "Are you 
        all right?  You look pale.  Perhaps you should go into the drawing 
        room and sit down".  Josette replies, "Yes, I could use some
        rest".  Nathan says goodnight to Millicent and leaves, promising
        to return tomorrow to settle on a wedding date.
           Millicent goes into the drawing room. She tells Josette,
        "Perhaps a sherry would help.  Cousin Naomi says a sherry always
        helps...", but Josette declines.  Millicent tells her, "It pains 
        me to see someone as sad as you.  Is there anything I can do?" 
        Josette replies, "No, it's too late".  Millicent asks, "For what?" 
        Millicent replies, "He promised to come back to me.  Now he has, but 
        he doesn't want me anymore".  Millicent, puzzled, asks, "Who are 
        you talking about?"  Josette replies, "Barnabas".  Millicent 
        protests, "Barnabas? Barnabas is on his way to England".  Josette
        replies, "No, he's here. I saw him tonight!"
           Nathan goes to the bar which will be called "The Blue Whale"
        in 1966.  Now, it is known as "The Eagle". He goes to the
        bartender, a Mr. Mooney, and asks for, "Rum! The best you have!"
        Mooney remarks, "Ah, you've settled on a day, have you?" Nathan
        replies, "No, but we soon will".  He looks around, sees he's the only 
        customer in the place, and remarks on the fact. Mooney explains,
        "It's the attacks. The village women won't let their men leave
        them alone for a moment".  A woman comes into the tavern.  Mooney
        tells her, "Sorry, but ladies aren't allowed in here without
        an escort." but Nathan interrupts, "It's all right. The lady's 
        with me".  They sit down together at a table.  The woman, young, 
        blond and very attractive, remarks to Nathan, "Well, I always know
        where to find you, don't I, Nathan?  You're always either in the
        arms of a woman or in a tavern".  Nathan asks, "What do you want?" 
        The woman replies, "I came to see my loving husband, of course".
        Nathan demands, "Get to the point".  The woman replies, "I haven't
        gotten a payment from you in 8 months".  Nathan asks, "How did you
        know I was here?"  The woman replies, "You're in the navy. It's 
        easy to locate a sailor".  Nathan caustically remarks, "You've 
        never had any problems doing that".  The woman angrily replies, "Are 
        you going to be civil to me or am I going to have to tell the whole 
        town you abandonned me?"  Nathan tells her, "Tell me what you want. 
        I'll get it for you and then you'll go back to Baltimore".  She 
        tells him she wants the money he'd promised to send her every month. 
        He explains to her that he hasn't been sending it to her because
        he hasn't had any spare cash, explaining, "The navy doesn't pay 
        very well". She doesn't believe him, saying, "You're feathering
        a nest somewhere, aren't you?  Who is she?"  Nathan replies, "Suki, 
        how much do you want?"  She names her price.  He agrees and leaves 
        to get it.
           Suke remarks to the bartender, "I take it Lt. Forbes is a
        regular customer".  Mooney replies, "Aye. An old friend, are 
        you?"  Suki replies, "You could put it that way".  The bartender
        asks, "Are you staying for the celebration?"  Suki asks, 
        "Celebration?"  Mooney asks, "Didn't he tell you he was getting 
        married?"  Suki replies, "He said he had a surprise for me. Maybe 
        that was it".  Mooney remarks, "Not every man gets to marry a 
        Collins".  Suki asks, "Collins, as in Collinsport?"   Mooney replies,
        "That family owns everything there is to own in Collinsport",  Suki
        asks, "Does that mean the young lady is wealthy?"  Mooney replies,
        "There aren't many wealthier".  Suki remarks, "Isn't that 
        interesting?"  
           Back in the drawing room of Collinwood, Josette says to Millicent,
        "You don't believe me. I DID see Barnabas!"  Millicent replies, "That's
        impossible. He left for England two weeks ago.  His ship probably 
        hasn't even gotten to England yet", but Josette insists, "He did 
        not go to England. It's a story Joshua made up".  Millicent asks, 
        "Why would he do that?"  Josette replies, "He has his reasons, but 
        I promised to keep them secret".  Millicent says, "You haven't been 
        well.  With all the heartbreak that's happened to you, isn't it 
        possible what you thought you saw was a dream?"  Josette replies,
        "I did have a dream earlier, a strange frightening dream.  But then 
        I awoke and went to find him.  I knew that when I went to a place 
        called Eagle Hill cemetary, I would find him there".  Millicent 
        replies, "Now I know it was a dream.  What would Barnabas be doing 
        in a cemetary?"  Josette tells Millicent, "He seemed different.
        Something happened to him, but he wouldn't tell me what it was.
        He just kept saying over and over again that I had to leave.
        I don't understand it. But then why did he tell me to wait for
        him, why?"  Millicent tells Josette, "I think you should go to 
        your room and rest".  Josette replies, "Yes. If he doesn't want
        me anymore, it's best that I go on with my plans and leave 
        Collinwood.  Two more days, I don't think I can stand two more 
        days".  Millicent takes her up to her room.                                 
           In the tomb, Barnabas thinks to himself, "In 2 days, she'll
        be gone, and safe from me.  I must make every effort to stay
        away from her.  If I see her again, I will not be able to resist
        making her what I am, and I love her too much for that!"

        Worldvision Rerun 208
        Tape Date:   January 29, 1968 (ABC #25-DRK-68)
        Air Date:    February 2, 1968 Friday
        Writer:      Gordon Russell
        Director:    Lela Swift

           Josette awakens.  She goes to the window and thinks to herself,
        "One more day.  Tomorrow evening, Collinwood will be just a 
        memory..."  There's a knock at the door.  Josette answers.  It's
        Millicent.  Millicent asks, "How do you feel?"  Josette replies,
        "No different from last night, when I saw...him".  Millicent 
        suggests, "You should get some sleep.", but Josette replies, "I  
        can't.  There's too much to think about.  I keep thinking 
        Barnabas is nearby, somewhere very close."  Outside, Barnabas
        comes out of the woods and looks up at Josette's window.  He
        thinks to himself, "Come to the window, Josette!  I want to see
        your face one more time before you leave.  That's all I ask. 
        One more time..."    
           Inside in Josette's room, Josette congratulates Millicent on
        her upcoming wedding, apoligizing for not having done so last
        night.  Millicent worries about whether Joshua will approve,
        noting Nathan's lowly position.  Josette volunteers to help her
        get Joshua's approval.  Millicent declines, saying, "No, this
        is something I must handle myself. I've always dreamed of marrying
        a man like Nathan.  I'm not going to lose this chance".  She 
        glances out the window and sees Nathan coming up to the house. 
        She leaves to let him in. Josette goes to bed. 
           Nathan knocks on the front door.  Millicent answers it and
        greets him exuberantly, "Good evening, Lieutenant!"  Nathan replies,
        "Good Evening", in a rather distracted tone.  Millicent asks, "Is 
        something the matter?"  Nathan replies, "When I was walking along 
        the road, I saw a man in the distance in the woods."  Millicent 
        asks, "What man?"  Nathan replies, "Maybe my imagination is getting 
        the better of me, but I could swear it was Barnabas Collins!"  
        Millicent says, "And I could swear that everyone is going mad! 
        Last night, Josette thought she saw cousin Barnabas.  But he's on 
        his way to England!"  Nathan starts to say, "But if Josette saw 
        Barnabas...", but Millicent interrupts, "She's been under a great 
        deal of strain".  Nathan replies, "But I'm not, and I saw him. 
        He was dressed like him, and he looked like him".  Millicent notes,
        "But you saw the man from a great distance.  You must have been 
        mistaken.  If Barnabas were here, why would he be standing in the 
        woods in the middle of the night?"  Nathan replies, "I guess you're 
        right.  I don't know what to make of it" 
           They go into the drawing room.  Nathan asks, "Well, have you
        thought about it?"  Millicent asks, "What?"  Nathan replies, "The 
        date I proposed for our wedding, the second of March".  Millicent
        tells him, "I haven't had time to think about it. I've been with 
        Josette all day".  Nathan asks, "Why?"  Josette replies, "You know 
        how much tragedy she's suffered".  Nathan says, "I'm also more 
        practical than you.  She's still young.  One day, she'll meet 
        someone else and fall in love".  Millicent says,  "I'm afraid
        she'll never recover".  Nathan insists, "She'll recover".  Millicent
        says, "You say that because you're a man.  A man falls in love 
        over and over, but a woman falls in love only once".  Nathan 
        exclaims,  "What romantic nonsense!"  Millicent replies, "No it 
        isn't.  I expect you've been in love many times already".  Nathan
        lies, "No, not until I met you". and embraces her.  There's a 
        knock at the door.  Millicent wonders, "Who could that be this 
        time of night?"  Nathan jokes, "Perhaps Cousin Barnabas has decided 
        to come in from the woods".  Millicent and answers the door.  It 
        is Suki.  Suki starts to say, "How do you do? I'm looking for..."
        but then sees Nathan standing at the doorway of the drawing room 
        and exclaims, "Nathan!"  Nathan has a look of complete shock on his
        face.  Suki continues, "Dear, dear Nathan! Good to see you again!
        The last time was quite awhile ago!"  She turns to Millicent and
        introduces herself, "I'm Suki Forbes".  Millicent, puzzled, asks,
        "Suki Forbes?"  Suki replies, "Yes, you don't mean Nathan hasn't 
        told you?"  Millicent asks, "Told me what?"  Suki replies,  "That 
        he had..."
           "... a sister!"  Millicent replies, "No, never".  Suki remarks,
        "He's always been so terribly forgetful about things".  Millicent 
        takes Suki into the drawing room to talk.  She asks her, "Do you 
        plan on staying in Collinsport for awhile?"  Suki replies, "That 
        depends on Nathan.  I haven't seen him in awhile.  It depends on 
        how much time he has to see me".  Millicent tells Suki, "I'm sure 
        I can convince Joshua to give him some time off from the shipyards".
        Suki remarks, "I'm sure we'll be fast friends!"  Suddenly, she 
        gasps, "OH!"  Barnabas is peering in through the drawing room 
        window.  Millicent asks, "Miss Forbes! What's the matter?" Suki
        replies, "I saw a man's face at the window!"  Millicent and Nathan 
        look, but Barnabas is gone.  Suki tells Millicent, "There was 
        something evil about that face!"  Nathan, who had gone out to 
        investigate, returns and says, "There's no one out there." Millicent
        tells Suki, "It must have been your imagination, Miss Forbes". but
        Suki insists, "No! I'm sure! I saw it!"  Nathan suggests, 
        "Millicent, perhaps a cup of tea might make her feel better". 
        Millicent protests, "But cook has gone to bed!"  Nathan asks her
        to do him a favor and make the tea.  Millicent leaves to do so.
           Nathan asks Suki, "All right! What's your game?"  Suki replies,
       "What's MY game?!"  Nathan reminds her, "You promised to leave town 
        on the next carriage", but Suki replies, "No, Nathan. I've found 
        Collinsport more interesting than I thought it'd be.  I've decided 
        to stay here awhile.  I've found out about the Collins family's 
        wealth".  Nathan tells her, "This is different.  I happen to be in
        love with Millicent", but Suki exclaims, "Rubbish! You're in love 
        with her money.  You neglected to tell me you're about to snare 
        quite a fortune".  Nathan asks, "How much do you want?"  Suki 
        replies, "I'll decide later".  Nathan tells her,  "I'll give
        you what you want!  Just get out of here right away!", but Suki
        refuses.  Millicent returns with the tea.  She asks, "Nathan, have 
        you told Suki?"  Suki asks, "Told me what?"  Millicent tells  her, 
        "Nathan and I are planning to be married!"  Suki replies, "Married? 
        No, he hasn't told me.  Didn't I tell you he was absentminded?"
           Barnabas is outside again, looking up at Josette's window,
        thinking, "Why doesn't she come to the window? I must see her 
        one more time before she leaves!  One more time!  If she does 
        not come to me, I must go to her!"
           The clock in Josette's room reads 2:00, but she is not asleep.
        A bat flutters outside.  Frightened, Josette puts on a nightgown
        and prepares to exit her room.  Barnabas appears inside.  Josette
        turns and is surprised to see him.  He exclaism, "Josette!" She
        exclaims, "Barnabas!"  Barnabas tells her," I had to see you one 
        more time!"  Josette says, "Barnabas!" and starts to walk towards 
        him, but he tells her, "Stay there!  I just want to look at you, 
        then I must go.  That's the way it must be".  Josette tells him,
        "I cannot leave Collinsport.  I must stay", but he tells her, "That
        cannot be".  Josette asks, "Why?"  Barnabas replies, "Josette, 
        you must leave Collinsport!", but Josette tells him, "No, now that 
        I have seen you, that's impossible".  Barnabas remarks, "Then I 
        should not have come", but Josette tells him, "It makes no 
        difference.  I would've kept thinking of you and come back". 
        Barnabas says, "I beg of you, leave!", but Josette replies,  "No. 
        Our destinies are one.  Nothing can keep us apart".  Barnabas warns
        her,  "You don't know what it would be like for us to be together",
        but Josette replies, "I only want to be with you.  Please take me 
        with you!"  Barnabas weakens, embraces her and bites her.

        Worldvision Rerun 209
        Tape Date:   January 30, 1968 (ABC #26-DRK-68)

        Director:    Lela Swift

          It is morning.  Josette is lying in bed, two holes in her
        neck.  There's a knock at the door. It's Natalie, bearing a
        tray with Josette's breakfast on it.  She calls from outside,
        "Josette? Josette?"  Josette replies, "Just a moment!" She puts 
        a frilly scarf-like thing around her neck to hide the bite marks
        then opens the door.  Natalie tells Josette, "I saw the maid 
        coming up with your tray, and I grabbed it from her. Her face 
        is always so red, it takes my appetite away every morning". She 
        puts the tray down and goes to pull open the curtains.  Josette
        exclaims, "Please don't do that!".  Natalie asks, "Why not? There's 
        so little sunshine around her, you should take advantage of it 
        when there is.  What's the matter?"  Josette replies, "Nothing. Just
        a mood".  Natalie remarks, "A morbid one".  Josette replies, "No, 
        not at all.  Quite the opposite.  After the day, the evening comes".
        Natalie asks, "Will this evening be different from all the others?
        Will we be deprived of Joshua's Revolutionary War stories?".
        Josette says, "This evening WILL be different!"  Natalie asks, "Why?
        Is there going to be a party?  We haven't had a party here since
        we've come, unless you count that tea party they had for the Ben,
        Riggs and all the other servants.  I found that very charming,
        though I must say Ben's attentions made me nervous.  Josette,
        you're acting very strangely.  And you're so pale."  Josette replies,
        "I'm not".  Natalie asks, "Do you think you look the way you always
        do?  Do you think you're acting normally?"  Josette replies, "If
        I'm behaving differently, it's because I'm happy.  You probably
        don't remember what I'm like when I'm happy.  It's been such a
        long time since I've been happy".   Natalie tells Josette, "As
        soon as you're dressed, we're going down to Mr. Collins' study
        and make arrangements to leave on the earliest boat and join your
        father in New York."  Josette replies, "You will join him. I will
        not."  Natalie asks, "You're not coming?"  Josette replies, "No".
        Natalie asks, "Why?", then guesses, "Barnabas! You're staying for
        him! You're waiting for him to come back!"  Josette replies, "But
        you know he's dead".  Natalie remarks, "In this house, strange
        things happen.  Witchcraft!!"  Josette says, "You know me. Can't
        you see I'm all right?"  Natalie says, "I don't think so". She 
        turns to leave.  Josette asks, "Where are you going? Are you going 
        to try to do something?" Natalie denies that she is.  Josette tells
        Natalie, "There's nothing you can do". Natalie leaves. Josette 
        closes the drapes.
           Natalie goes to the Collinsport Gaol.  Peter Bradford brings
        Vicky out. Natalie asks Vicky, "When's your trial?"  Vicky replies,
        "Soon".  Natalie tells her, "It needn't be".  Vicky asks, "What?" 
        Natalie replies, "There needn't be any trial if you remove the 
        spell".  Vicky asks, "What spell?"  Natalie replies, "The spell 
        on Josette.  You're the only one who could've done it".  Vicky 
        insists, "I can't put spells on anyone", but Natalie continues, 
        "You've put a spell on Josette.  She refuses to leave here now." 
        She begs Vicky to raise the spell, "I will give you money!  I will 
        see to it that you are freed! Help me!", but Vicky asks, "How can 
        I help you?" Natalie tells her, "You can give me some clues.  How 
        is Josette to die?  The book doesn't say".  Vicky replies, "She 
        jumped from Widow's Hill. I can't tell the future but I've lived 
        in it.  I know everything about Josette, all the legends, all the 
        stories."  Natalie asks, "What do the legends say? Why does she go 
        to Widow's Hill?"  Vicky replies, "Let me think. Let me try to 
        remember.  She was very calm that day, calmer that she'd been in 
        a long time.  It was a cold, stormy day.  The moon could not bee
        seen through the clouds.  She'd lost her ring, a black, onyx ring..."
        Natalie interrupts, "Josette has no such ring".  Vicky asks, "Are you
        sure? The legends say she was very upset she had lost it.  Then other
        things started to go wrong.  Glass shattered, doors flew open and
        couldn't be shut..."  Natalie exclaims, "When you speak, it is Satan
        speaking! Tell your master I will save Josette, even if I lose myself!"
        and leaves.
          Peter asks Vicky, "Why did you tell her that?"  Vicky replies, "I 
        had to".  Peter tells her, "Don't you know she'll use every word 
        you said against you in your trial?"  Vicky replies, "I keep 
        thinking if I tell the truth, people will start to believe me".
        Peter asks, "Suppose it was 1968 now, and someone came and told 
        you they were from the 21st century and told you about the future.  
        What would you think?"  Vicky admits, "I suppose I'd think she 
        was mad".  She finally gets the point and exclaims, "What a fool 
        I've been!"  Peter asks, "I suppose you think a lot about getting 
        back to your own time. How would you feel if you never got back?
        Have you thought about staying here? In your time, do you have
        broters, sisters?  A fiance?"  Vicky replies, "I had one, but he 
        was lost in  an airplane crash".  Peter asks, "Airplane?"  Vicky
        replies, "It flies".  Peter asks, "Is it a sort of bird?"  Vicky 
        replies, "No, it's a machine, with engines. I can't explain it 
        better than that.  I don't really understand it myself, but you 
        ride in it through the air".  Peter remarks, "For the first time, 
        I think you are crazy!  Ride in it, through the air?!"  Vicky tells
        him, "There's so much you don't know!"  Peter tells her, "I wish 
        you didn't think anymore about going back to where you came from. 
        I wish you'd stay here and forget about going back to your own 
        time".  Vicky tells him, "There's one good thing about coming to 
        this time.  Meeting you".  He kisses her.
           It is night.  Barnabas enters Josette's room through a secret
        panel to the right of the fireplace.  Josette exclaims, "Barnabas!" 
        Barnabas asks, "Do you hate me?"  Josette replies, "Hate you? I 
        love you!"  Barnabas asks, "There's nothing I can say to convince
        you how impossible it will be for us to be together?"  Josette
        replies, "There's only one thing. Say you do not love me".  Barnabas
        tells her, "I cannot say that".  He asks, "Then you accept what 
        you must do?"  Josette replies, "Yes".  Barnabas tells her, "You
        will be very different. You will be as I am. Do you know what that 
        is?"  Josette replies, "I only know that you're dead, yet alive. I 
        am not afraid of death.  I only want to be your wife."  Barnabas
        'marries' her by putting his black, onyx ring on her finger.  
        There's a knock at the door.  Barnabas says to Josette quietly,
        "Be at the old house as soon as possible!" and leaves through
        the secret passage.  From outside in the hallway, Natalie calls out,
        "Josette, are you all right?"  Josette opens the door and lets
        Natalie in.  Natalie remarks, "I thought I heard you talking to
        someone".  Josette replies,  "No. Why did you come?"  Natalie
        replies, "I was worried".  Josette asks, "About what? You can see
        that nothing's wrong.  Now if you will excuse me, Aunt Natalie..."
        Natalie continues, "I'm just concerned. You've been behaving so
        strangely.  This morning, you were so very, very odd..." She stops
        when she notices the ring Josette is wearing and exclaims, "That
        ring!  When did you get it?  Where did you get it?  You must tell
        me!!!"

           Natalie tells Josette about her conversation with Vicky, "She
        predicted your death!"  Josette asks, "And you believe her?"
        Natalie replies, "I did not believe her until I saw that ring!
        Josette, where did you get that ring?"  Josette lies, "I've always
        had it".  Natalie says, "I'm only trying to help!", but Josette
        replies, "I need no assistance of any kind".  Natalie says, "You
        did not have that ring a few days ago!", but Josette insists, "I've
        always had it.  Perhaps you've never noticed it".  Natalie reminds
        her, "A few days ago, we made a complete inventory of your jewelry
        in preparation for leaving Collinwood!  It was not among your
        jewelry then!"  Josette replies, "Perhaps you missed it.  I fail
        to see why this is so important".  Natalie says, "Everything the
        witch has prophesied has come true!  We must go back to Martenique
        immediately!"  Josette replies, "You can go back to Martenique if
        you want to, but I'm not".  Natalie exclaims, "I don't understand
        this attitude of yours! It's almost as if you're waiting for your
        own doom, awaiting it's embrace!"  Josette remarks, "Embrace...I'll
        be all right".  Natalie tells her, "Barnabas is dead! He will not
        return!  You cannot waste the rest of your life grieving for
        the dead!"  Josette replies, "I am not grieving anymore."  Natalie
        says, "Then there's nothing making you stay", but Josette just
        replies, "Nothing can make me leave".  Natalie begs, "Josette,
        please tell me, where did you get that ring?", but Josette replies,
        "Aunt Natalie, I'd like to be by myself".  Natalie leaves.
           Natalie goes downstairs into the foyer.  She looks at the portrait
        of Barnabas and says to it, "I thought I saw your ghost the other
        night.  I wish I did see it and could speak to it.  I would plead
        with you to help Josette, to persuade her to leave this place and
        save herself!"  Suddenly, she notices something and touches the
        portrait.  Joshua comes down into the foyer, sees her touching the
        portrait and remarks, "Testing to see if the paint is dry? I can
        assure you it is.  The portrait is several months old now". 
        Natalie tells him, "I'm curious about that ring, the ring 
        Barnabas is wearing in the portrait".  Joshua tells her, "He was 
        very fond of that ring.  It was very special to him.  He wore it 
        all the time.  He intended to give it to his wife when he married. 
        I'm sure Angelique would have loved to get her hands on it.  There 
        was a very sentimental streak in my son..."  Joshua suddenly gets 
        choked up with emotion and stops talking.  Natalie asks, "May I ask 
        you something?  Was that ring unique, or was it part of a set?" 
        Joshua indignantly replies, "The Collins family jewelry, like its 
        pride, is without equal.  It was unique.  Why do you ask?"  Natalie
        replies, "Just idle curiosity."  Josette comes down the stairs, 
        dressed to go out.  Joshua says, "Josette!  You're not going out 
        at this ungodly hour!"  Josette replies, "Yes, I want get some night 
        air".  Natalie protests, "But you're feeling ill,  Josette".  
        Josette replies, "No, I'm fine", but then faints. Joshua shouts, 
        "Riggs!  Riggs!  Bring some brandy!  Quickly!"  Suddenly, he is 
        shocked to see the ring on Josette's finger.  Natalie explains, 
        "Apparently, Barnabas gave it to her".  Joshua exclaims, "He 
        couldn't have!"  Natalie asks, "Why not? You know how they felt 
        about each other".  Joshua tells her, "What I stopped short of 
        saying before was that Barnabas was buried with this ring!  It went 
        with him to the grave!"                
           Josette has been put back in her room.  Natalie stations Riggs
        in a chair outside Josette's room and instructs him, "Do not leave
        this door.  Josette is not to be let out no matter what she says!"
           Josette is lying in bed in her room.  She regains consciousness.
        She gets out of bed, goes to the door and tries it but finds it
        locked.  She asks, "Why is it locked?  Why am I here in this 
        room?  I was going out.  Into the night...Into the night..."
           In the foyer, Joshua is dressed to go out.  Natalie tells him,
        "I don't think Josette needs a doctor.  I think she's just tired
        more than anything else".  Joshua replies, "I wasn't going to go
        to get a Doctor".  Natalie tells him, "I'd prefer you stayed here. 
        I'm sure when Josette wakes up she'll have an explanation for the 
        ring. It must be a different ring".  Joshua remarks, "Yes, that's 
        the only explanation".  Natalie again tells him, "I wish you 
        wouldn't go", but Joshua replies, "I have to".  Natalie remarks,
        "I'm afraid. I feel this terrible feeling...", but Joshua replies,
        "Nonsense.  There's nothing to fear.  Nothing at all" and leaves. 
        Natalie looks at Barnabas' portrait again. 
           In Josette's room, Josette says, "I want to go to him!  I want 
        to find him!  I need him!  I must go to him!  I must find him!"
        She demands to be let out.  Riggs tells her through the door,
        "Sorry, ma'am, but I've been instructed not to let you out under
        any circumstance. That was the Countess' strict orders".  Josette
        shouts, "Open the door!", but Riggs still refuses to do so. 
        Josette thinks to herself, "The secret panel.  Where is it?  How 
        does it open?"  She tries to find it but can't.  She goes back to 
        the door and shouts, "Why is this door locked?  Why am I being 
        treated this way?  Riggs!  Open that door or I'll have you 
        dismissed!  Open that door!  I warn you! Riggs, please!  Open 
        that door!  I must get out!  You don't understand!  I must!  Please! 
        Please!".  While she is pleading with Riggs, behind her the secret 
        panel opens and Barnabas steps into the room.  She turns, sees him 
        and exclaims, "You've come back!  They tried to keep me away from 
        you.  Nothing can keep us apart now!  I should have known you would 
        come for me!  Now we will be together for all eternity.  You have 
        come for me, haven't you?"  Barnabas replies, "Yes".  Josette tells
        him, "Then take me, and we will never return!"  Barnabas warns her 
        that the road ahead of them will be a dark one if she goes with him,
        but she tells him, "I don't care! We will share our eternity
        together!"  Barnabas asks, "Are you sure? You can still be free
        of me.  You could live in the world of light, and the living".
        Josette replies, "I don't want to be free of you!  It will not be
        a world of death and darkness."  Barnabas take her hand and takes
        her out through the secret passage, closing it behind him.
           Joshua goes to the Collins family mausoleum.  He thinks to
        himself, "The ring was here!  I put in on his finger myself and
        closed the coffin.  Who would dare defile the dead?"  He pulls
        the ring in the lion's mouth, opens the secret door and goes
        into the secret room.  As he prepares to open the coffin, he
        speaks, "I never gave you love, but I want to give you at least
        peace.  If anyone has disturbed your rest, I promise revenge!"
        He opens the coffin and is shocked to find it completely empty.
        Barnabas is not there...

           Joshua returns to Collinwood and sits down in the drawing room.
        He is visibly shaken.  Natalie comes into the room and says, "Joshua.
        I've been looking for you.  You must speak to Josette and tell her
        to leave Collinwood for her own good.  She won't listen to me.
        Perhaps she'll listen to you".  Noticing Joshua's demeanor she
        asks, "Is something wrong?"  Joshua replies, "I went to his grave. 
        The ring.  He was wearing it when he was buried.  Now it's in 
        Josette's possession.  I don't understand!"  Natalie says, "Neither 
        do I".  Joshua continues, "I opened his coffin, and there was 
        nothing there! The coffin was empty!"  Natalie exclaims, "The 
        coffin was empty?!"  Joshua replies, "Yes".  Natalie says, "I don't 
        understand".  Joshua tells her, "Only one possiblity exists. 
        Someone, some unspeakable person has robbed his grave! There
        are unscrupulous individuals who rob graves".  Natalie points out,
        "But no one except you and Mrs. Collins know where he was buried. 
        Even Josette and I don't know".  Joshua tells her, "Two servants 
        knew.  The two servants who carried his casket there".  Natalie
        remarks, "But those were two servants you trusted".  Joshua adds,
        "Ben Stokes also knew."  Natalie remarks, "I don't think Ben Stokes
        would rob Barnabas' grave.  He was so devoted to him.  And how
        would Josette get the ring?"  Joshua says, "There has to be some
        explanation, there has to be!"  Suki Forbes comes into the room.
        She thanks Joshua for letting her stay at Collinwood, then asks,
        "Is Mrs. Collins all right?  When I went past her room, I heard
        her calling someone.  She kept repeating the same name over and
        over.  I believe it was 'Barnabas'.  Wasn't he the man who went
        to England, the man in the portrait in the foyer?"  Joshua replies,
        "Yes".  Joshua and Natalie go upstairs to check up on Josette.
        Suki goes and looks at the portrait of Barnabas in the foyer.
           Joshua and Natalie go Josette's room.  Joshua orders, "Unlock
        the door, Riggs!"  Riggs does so, and Natalie and Joshus go in.
        They are shocked to find that Josette is not in there.  Natalie
        gasps, "She's gone!"  Joshua asks Riggs, "Riggs, Did you let Mrs.
        Collins out of this room?"  Riggs replies, "No. She pleaded with
        me, but..."  Joshua asks, "You didn't?"  Riggs replies, "No".
        Natalie asks Riggs, "You were guarding the room from the moment I
        left you?"  Riggs replies, "Yes".  Joshua tells Riggs, "Round up
        the other servants and form a search party.  Mrs. Collins must be
        found!"  Riggs leaves to do so.  Natalie moans, "Something terrible
        has happened to Josette!  How did she get out?  How did she get past
        Riggs?"  Joshua tells her, "There is another way out.  I will show
        you".  He opens the secret panel.  Natalie gasps, "A secret panel!"
        Joshua replies, "Yes. The passage behind it leads to the garden at 
        the end of the house.  We were still in the Revolutionary War when
        this house was being constructed.  I had it built to be on the
        safe side".  Natalie points out, "But Josette doesn't know about 
        it!"  Joshua tells her, "Only two besides myself know about it, 
        and both of them are dead".  Natalie asks, "You mean Jeremiah and 
        Barnabas?"  Joshua replies, "Yes".  Natalie mutters, "Barnabas..."
           Suki is pacing around downstairs. There's a knock at the
        door.  Suki answers.  It's Nathan.  Suki snidely remarks, "Well,
        hello, brother dear!  What a pleasant surprise!"  Nathan asks, "Are
        you alone?"  Suki replies, "For the moment. Have you come looking 
        for your lovely fiancee?"  Nathan asks, "Where is she?"  Suki
        replies, "Up in her room resting.  She seems to rest a lot.  I
        suppose all that money must be quite a burden to her.  But I'm
        sure you'll relieve her of some of that burden".  Nathan takes
        Suki into the drawing room and tells her, "All right, Suki.  It's
        time to stop playing games.  How much do you want?  There's a
        carriage leaving Collinsport tomorrow morning.  How much will
        it take to get you on it?"  Suki replies, "Shall we say $5000?"
        Nathan exclaims, "$5000?!?!?"  Suki adds, "In gold."  Nathan
        protests, "You know I don't have that kind of money!"  Suki replies,
        "But dear Millicent does".  Nathan complains, "How can I ask her for
        that much money?"  Suki replies, "I'm sure you'll find a way. You've
        always had a way with words.  Nathan, you underestimate yourself.
        Think if what dear Millicent is getting.  Surely a handsome husband
        like you is worth $5000".  Nathan protests, "But it'll take time!"
        Suki replies, "Take all the time you want".  Nathan says, "But I
        want you out of here right now!"  Suki refuses to leave.  Nathan
        asks, "And if I don't give you the money?"  Suki replies, "I'll show
        Millicent a document she'll find very interesting. Our wedding
        certicate".  Nathan exclaims, "You wouldn't do that! If Millicent
        breaks our engagement, I won't get a penny and neither will you", but
        Suki spitefully replies, "I'd be getting the satisfaction of ruining
        your plans".  They get into a heated argument.  They abruptly stop
        when Natalie walks into the drawing room.  Suki tells Natalie, "We
        were just having a little family argument.  Nathan's a dear, but he
        does get emotional at times."  Natalie tells Nathan, "Josette's
        disappeared!  You must help me find her!  We must find her!  We
        must!" and leaves.  Nathan tells Suki, "We can't talk here.  But
        we must settle this tonight!  There's another house on the property.
        No one lives there now".  Suki replies, "I know where it is.
        Millicent took me on a tour of the property yesterday."  Nathan tells
        her, "I must first pay my respects to the family. I'll join you
        there in a few minutes".  Suki leaves to go to the old house. Joshua
        comes into the foyer and says, "Lt. Forbes!"  Nathan tells him,
        "The countess has just told me Josette has disappeared.  Is there
        anything I can do?"  Joshua replies, "Ride into town and get the
        constable to form a search party".  Nathan says, "There's no need
        for that. I can search the property", but Joshua insists, saying,
        "A search party can search more effectively than one man".  Nathan
        replies, "All right, sir"  and leaves to do as instructed.
           Suki goes to the old house and goes in through the front door,
        which is unlocked.  Inside, there is a man standing in the shadows.
        Suki, frightened, gasps, "AHHHHH!"  The man comes out of the shadows.
        It's Barnabas.  He asks, "Who are you and what are you doing here?"
        Suki apologizes, "I didn't know anyone was here", but Barnabas
        demands,  "Answer my question! Who are you?"  Suki replies, "My
        name is Suki Forbes.  I'm visiting here. My brother is marrying
        a member of the Collins family".  Barnabas asks, "You're Nathan
        Forbes' sister?  What are you doing here?"  Suki explains, "Nathan
        was going to meet me here.  He promised to show me this house".
        Barnabas says, "You're not Nathan Forbes' sister!  You are his
        wife!"  Suki asks, "Wife?"  Barnabas says, "Don't bother to deny
        it.  Nathan told me he had no living relatives, so you must be his
        wife".  Suki retorts, "You know my secret but I know yours!  I know
        who you are!"  Barnabas asks, "Who am I?"  Suki replies, "Barnabas
        Collins".  Barnabas lies, "I am not. Barnabas Collins is gone".
        Suki continues, "So I'm told.  But why do you look exactly like the
        portrait in the foyer of Collinwood?  You ARE Barnabas Collins,
        aren't you?  Your family and everyone else say you're gone, but
        you're here.  I find that curious".  She sees a woman's cloak
        hanging on a chair and continues, "And this cloak, it belongs to
        Josette, doesn't it, the one who's missing from Collinwood". She
        tells Barnabas that there must be a reason for all this secrecy,
        and offers to keep his secret if he'll cooperate. Suki, who's been
        looking around as she's been talking to Barnabas, turns and suddenly
        notices that Barnabas is gone.  Puzzled, she asks, "Mr. Collins?
        Mr. Collins?  Where did he go?  He just disappeared as if... I don't
        want to stay here any longer!  I want to get out of here!"  She goes
        outside and calls out, "Nathan! Nathan!"  Suddenly, a bat appears
        and flutters around her.  Frightened, she screams, "No!  Get away
        from me!  Stay away!"  She flees back inside, closes and locks the
        doors and moans, "Where is Nathan?  He promised to be here in a few
        minutes!  Where are you?  Mr. Collins!  Mr. Collins!"  She looks out
        the window and sees the bat staring at her.  She quickly leaves the
        window, screaming, "That bat! Staring at me, staring right through me,
        as if it were human and wanted to kill me!"  She cries, "Nathan,
        please come!  I'm so frightened! Pleas come, please!"  Suddenly,
        she notices the bat has somehow gotten inside and is flying around.
        Suddenly, the bat materializes into Barnabas.  Suki moans, "I don't
        believe this is happening!"  Barnabas tells her, "I tried to warn
        you, but you wouldn't listen."  Suki begs, "Please!", but Barnabas
        tells her, "It's too late to beg for mercy now.  Much too late".
        He grabs her.  She screams. He grabs her by the throat and starts
        to strangle her.  Nathan, just arriving outside, hears Suki's
        scream and shouts, "Suki! Are you in there?  Open this door!  Suki!
        Suki!"  He breaks open the door and goes in.  He finds Suki lying
        on the floor.  She is still alive, but just barely.  Nathan asks,
        "Who did this to you?"  Suki manages to gasp, "Barnabas, Barnabas
        Collins!" and expires.  Nathan cries, "Suki! Suki! Suki!"

           At Collinwood, Joshua comes down the stairs into the foyer.
        Nathan comes in and exclaims, "Mr. Collins! Something's happened!"
        Joshua asks, "Is it Josette?  Have you found her?"  Nathan replies,
        "No!  It's my sister!  I was searching for Josette near the old
        house.  I heard a woman screaming.  It was Suki.  By the time I 
        got to the old house, it was too late.  She'd been murdered.  Someone
        had strangled her!"
           Nathan and Joshua have gone to the old house.  Joshua is alone
        in the living room.  Nathan comes into he room and says, "I've
        put her on the chaise lounge and covered her with a sheet".
        Joshua says, "Allow me to offer my deepest sympathies.  What was
        she doing here?"  Nathan lies, "Perhaps she was searching for
        Josette".  Joshua asks, "What kind of madman would do something
        like this?  He'll hang for this!  Mark my words!"  Nathan asks, "One
        thing puzzles me.   What Suki said before she died.  How do you
        explain the fact that her last words were your son's name?"
        Joshua replies, "It would be useless speculation to try", but Nathan
        says, "Perhaps I can tell you.  As I was coming to Collinwood last
        night, I saw the figure of a man standing near the woods.  I could
        swear the figure was Barnabas".  Joshua tells him, "You know of
        course my son is in England".  Nathan asks, "Mr. Collins, if the man
        I saw in the woods was not Barnabas, then who was it?"  Joshua
        replies, "At the moment, I'm curious about another question.  Is
        there any ill feeling between you and your sister?"  Nathan replies,
        "No, why?"  Joshua says, "The amount of grief you've shown since
        you've discovered her body seems to indicate that she meant very
        little to you".  Nathan lies, "I'm still in shock, that's all".
        Joshua suddenly pauses, then says, "Wait! There's someone upstairs!
        Come!" He takes Nathan and they hid behind a pillar.  From there,
        they see Josette coming down the stairs.  They come out of hiding
        and go to her.  Joshua exclaims, "Josette!"  Josette, delirious,
        calls out, "Barnabas!  Where are you?" and faints.
           In the drawing room at Collinwood, Naomi waits nervously.
        Millicent comes downstairs and goes into the drawing room and asks,
        "Cousin Naomi, has there been any word?"   Naomi replies, "No".
        Millicent remarks, "Poor Josette!"  Naomi replies, "Yes. Poor
        Josette.  I shudder to think what might have happened to her".
        Millicent reassures her, "I'm sure Nathan and Cousin Joshua will
        find her.  Have you seen Nathan's sister?"  Naomi replies, "No".
        Millicent tells her,  "I just wnt to her room to look for her and
        she's gone".  Naomi suggests, "Perhaps she's with Nathan and Joshua".
        Milllicent remarks, "Have you noticed something odd about Suki? She
        doesn't look at all like Nathan.  Brothers and sisters usually
        resemble one another..."  They are interrupted by a voice shouting,
        "Naomi! Come quickly!"  They look into the foyer.  Joshua and Nathan
        have returned carrying Josette.  Joshua says, "We found her at the
        old house, barely conscious".  He instructs Nathan to find Riggs and
        tell him to go fetch the constable.  He and Naomi then take Josette
        upstairs.  Millicent asks why they need a constable.  Nathan
        explains, "Suki is dead.  I found her at the old house.  She'd been
        strangled.  She was still alive when I found her.  She tried to
        speak...Sorry, I can't go on".  Millicent tells him, "I understand.
        I'm so sorry!"  Nathan says, "I've got to go find Riggs. I'll be
        right back" and leaves.  Millicent goes upstairs.
           Josette has been put in her bed.  Naomi and Joshua are watching
        over her.  Naomi asks, "She was barely conscious when you found her?"
        Joshua replies, "Yes".  Naomi asks, "Did she say anything before
        collapsing?"  Joshua lies, "She said nothing".  Naomi remarks,
        "Perhaps she can tell us what happened after she regains
        conciousness".  Joshua suggests, "Perhaps some smelling salts
        will help".  Natalie tells him, "I have some in my bureau drawer".
        Joshua leaves to get them.  Naomi sees the bite marks on Josette's
        neck and says, "AHHHH!"  There's a knock at the door.  Naomi asks,
        "Yes?"  Millicent comes in.  She asks, "Is Josette going to be all
        right?"  Naomi replies, "She's still unconscious".  Millicent asks,
        "Did Joshua tell you about Nathan's sister?"  Naomi replies, "Yes".
        Millicent continues, "She had an aunt in Baltimore.  She was her
        only other living relation other than Nathan. I thought she should
        know.  I've written her a letter.  Could you read it and see if it's
        all right?"  Naomi replies, "Yes. How did you know about her aunt
        in Baltimore?"  Millicent explains, "Suki talked to me about her
        this afternoon.  She was very fond of her.  That's why I thought
        she should know".  Naomi reads the letter and tells Millicent, "The
        letter's all right".  Millicent takes it and tells Naomi, "I'll go
        and see if find the aunt's address in Suki's room" and leaves.
        Joshua returns with the smelling salts. Naomi points out the marks
        and says, "Just like Barnabas'!  What do you think caused them?"
        Joshua replies, "We'll ask her when she regains consciousness".
        Naomi says, "Perhaps she never will. When this happened to Barnabas,
        he was never rational again".
           Millicent comes down the stairs.  In her hands are the letter
        she had written and a black wooden box.  She goes into the drawing
        room and puts the box on a table.  Nathan returns, coming in through
        the front doors and goes into the drawing room.  Millicent asks, 
        "Did the constable come?"  Nathan replies, "Yes. They've taken the 
        body into the village.  Do you think your cousin would mind if I 
        poured myself a drink?  I'm still shaken."  Millicent replies, "Of
        course not. Nathan, after you've poured yourself your drink, could you
        read this letter and tell me if it's all right?  Suki told me about
        your Aunt in Baltimore and I thought she should know about Suki".
        Nathan notices the box she has on the table and exclaims,  "What are
        you doing with that box?!"  Millicent replies, "I found it in Suki's
        room. It seems to contain all her papers.  I thought your aunt's
        address might be somewhere in here".  She takes all the papers out of
        the box.  Nathan, a look of horror on his face quickly says, "No need
        to go to all that trouble. I can tell you my aunts adress! It's No. 7
        Franklin Lane, Baltimore, Maryland".  Millicent starts putting
        the papers back into the box, then notices something interesting.
        She exclaims, "Nathan! I didn't know Suki was married!"  Nathan asks,
        "Married?"  Millicent replies, "Yes. There's a marriage certificate
        in here."  Nathan tries to take it from her, "Let me...", but
        Millicent keeps it, saying, "No, don't you understand?  If Suki was
        married, I must write another letter to her husband".  She starts
        to read the marriage certificate, "...certifies that on the 8th of
        April 1792, Suki Welles and Nathan Forbes were married in Baltimore,
        Maryland". Shocked, she exclaims. "She wasn't your sister! She was
        your wife!  You've been deceiving me!"  Nathan begs, "Please! Let me
        explain!",  but Millicent says, "Don't say any more to me!"  Nathan
        tries to explain, "It was a marriage in name only!  I wanted to end
        it, but she wouldn't let me!"   Millicent cries, "No! I don't want
        to hear anymore! I don't want to be anywhere near you!"  Nathan begs,
        "Millicent, wait!", but Millicent runs off.
           Joshua and Naomi come down into the foyer. Joshua asks, "When 
        did Madame DuPres leave?"  Naomi replies, "This afternoon. I don't 
        see what she could do".  Joshua remarks, "There might not be 
        anything anyone can do", but then gets an idea, "Miss Winters told 
        her about a book that foretold the future..."  Naomi interrupts, 
        "Yes, I know about it.  She told me about it when she warned me 
        about Sarah".  Joshua continues,  "According to Madame DuPres, that 
        book predicts Josette's death.  It predicts that it will happen 
        tomorrow.  It predicts that she will die by her own hand.  If one 
        of us could be with her all day tomorrow, maybe we could prevent it. 
        If we can keep her alive through tomorrow, she'll be safe".
           Upstairs in her room, Josette has regained conciousness and
        says, "Tomorrow! Barnabas, tomorrow! I'll belong to you forever!"

           Ben is in a deserted shack on the Collins Estate, doing some
        woodworking.  He is working on two coffins.  Barnabas comes in
        and asks, "You're not ready yet?"  Ben replies, "No, but I will 
        be soon".  Barnabas asks, "What's taking so long?"  Ben replies,
        "I've been working day and night!"  Barnabas tells him, "The 
        coffins must be ready by midnight! They must be ready before I 
        leave!"  Ben asks, "But why do you need two coffins?"  Barnabas 
        replies, "I will not be alone when I leave tonight.  I will be 
        bringing someone with me".  Ben asks, "You mean Josette?!"  Barnabas
        replies, "Yes, and when I bring her tonight, the coffins must be 
        ready.  You will see to it that they are!"  Ben tells Barnabas, "If 
        I knew what you were planning for her, I wouldn't have helped you! 
        You promised not to go near her!"  Barnabas replies, "I tried, but 
        I couldn't resist".  Ben exclaims,  "You can't do that to her!" 
        Barnabas replies, "I love her".  Ben tells him, "If you love her, 
        how can you do this to her?  She doesn't know what you're planning 
        to make her, does she?"  Barnabas replies, "It's what she wants,
        Ben".  Ben exclaims, "I don't believe anyone would want that!"  and
        refuses to help any further.  Barnabas reminds him, "You forget, 
        you are my servant, Ben".  Ben protests, "You can't make me do what 
        I don't want to!", but Barnabas replies, "But there is something I
        can do. I can kill you!"  He grabs Ben by the throat and threatens
        to kill him, and asks, "Will you finish your work?"  Ben replies,
        "Yes..." Barnabas releases him and says, "Good. I will return at
        midnight. You will have a closed carriage waiting to take the coffins
        to the ship.  Is that understood?"  Ben replies, "Aye. Everything will
        be ready". Barnabas leaves.  Ben says to himself, "I can't let him
        take her away.  I've got to find some way to stop him! I'll find the
        countess and tell her what his plans are!  Maybe she'll take Josette 
        away before he can get to her!"  He goes to open the door but finds 
        that it is locked.  He exclaims, "Someone's locked the door!" The 
        room fills with a woman's laughter.  Ben exclaims, "Angelique! Where 
        are you?"  A ghostly head of Angelique appears and says, "Here I am, 
        Ben!"  Ben asks, "What do you want?"  Angelique replies, "I want you
        to stay here and follow Barnabas' orders".  Ben exclaims, "You don't 
        know what he's planning to do!"  Angelique replies, "Yes I do.  You 
        are not to interfere.  You are to stay here and let me attend to 
        Barnabas and Josette".  Ben asks, "What are you going to do?" 
        Angelque replies, "I would not allow them to be together in life, 
        and I will not allow them to be together in death.  They will not 
        go away together tonight.  I will see to that!"
           Natalie is with Josette in her room.  Natalie asks Josette,
        "How are you feeling, Josette?"  Josette replies, "Very relaxed. 
        The house seems to be very quiet this evening".  Natalie tells her, 
        "The evening's not over yet.  I won't relax till it's over".  
        Josette protests, "Oh, Natalie, I'm quite safe".  Natalie admits,
        "There does seem to be no chance for the prophecy to come true. 
        The night is clear, there's no storm, the moon can be clearly seen, 
        and none of the other things foretold has happened.  Nevertheless, 
        I will take every precaution.  In two hours, it will be midnight, 
        and you'll be safe".  Josette insists, "I'm completely safe. It's 
        hard to explain, but I feel nothing could harm me tonight.  Natalie
        remarks, "Josette, I don't understand your mood tonight".  Josette
        replies, "Neither do I" "You still haven't told me what you were 
        doing last night".  Josette replies, "I wasn't doing anything.
        I just went for a walk".  Natalie asks, "Did you go on your own 
        or did someone force you?"  Josette replies, "Who could've forced 
        me? I was in the room alone".  Natalie asks, "Why did you go to the 
        old house?  I can't understand why you would want to go there.  That 
        place has brought you nothing but tragedy".  Josette replies, 
        "That's not true".  Natalie asks, "What happened in there?"  Josette
        replies, "Nothing".  Natalie insists, "Something did. You were dazed 
        when they found you".  Josette lies, "I was just tired".  Natalie
        asks, "They said you were calling for Barnabas. Why?"  Josette 
        replies, "Even if I explained it to you, I'm sure you wouldn't 
        understand".  Suddenly, Natalie notices that a look of shock has
        appeared on Josette's face and asks, "What's the matter?"  Josette
        replies, "The ring!  It's gone!"  Natalie gasps, "The prophecy
        said everything would start when you discovered the loss of the
        ring!"  Josette replies, "It's nothing. It's a coincidence, that's 
        all!  I don't know where I could've lost it.  It must've happened 
        while I was at the old house.  Yes, the Old house!  I've got to 
        find the ring!" and starts to leave.  Natalie asks, "Where are you 
        going?"  Josette replies, "The old house!"  Natalie exclaims, "I 
        will not allow it!" and takes Josette's cape.  Josette demands,
        "Give me my cape!"  Natalie replies, "I will let you go after 
        midnight!"  Josette begs, "Natalie, I must find that ring!"  Natalie
        asks, "Why?"  Josette replies, "Because he'll expect me to have
        it".  Natalie asks, "Who?"  Josette replies, "Barnabas!"  Natalie
        exclaims, "Barnabas?! I will not allow you to go!" They struggle 
        for the cape.  In the struggle, they knock a glass lamp off the 
        table.  It shatters on the floor.  Natalie gasps, "The sound of 
        glass shattering!  What the prophecy foretold!  It's comining true, 
        little by little!  You must stay here!" Suddenly, the sound of a
        thunderclasp is heard.  Natalie glances out the window and gasps,
        "A storm is coming up!  There is no moon!"  The door suddenly blows
        open.  Natalie tries to shut it, but it will not shut.  Josette
        seems to be frightened now.  Natalie exclaims, "Oh! It won't close!
        You stay here!  I'll call for Riggs!"  As soon as she steps out into
        the hallway to do so, the doors slams shut all by itself.  Natalie
        tries to open it, but finds it locked.  She screams, "AHHH!
        Josette!  Open the door!  Josette!"  Inside the room, Josette's
        music box starts to play all by itself.  Josette exclaims, "My
        music box! Barnabas!"  Barnabas voice replies, "Yes, Josette.  It's
        Barnabas.  Are you ready yet?"  Josette replies, "Yes, my dear,
        yes.  Where are you?  Why can't I see you?"  Outside, Natalie
        shouts, "Who is in there, Josette?"  Barnabas' voice continues,
        "I'm waiting for you".  Josette says, "I feel so guilty.  I've
        lost the ring you gave me".  The voice tells her,  "Don't worry.
        I found it at the old house".  Josette exclaims, "You found the
        ring!"  The voice continues, "Come, Josette.  I'm waiting for you".
        Josette asks, "Where are you?"  Barnabas's voice replies, "I'm
        waiting for you here at Widow's Hill.  Go to the secret panel, 
        Josette, and come to Widow's Hill."  Outside, Natalie continues 
        to scream, "Josette!  Josette!  Let me in!  Let me in!", but 
        Josette opens the secret panel and leaves.  Angelique's laughter 
        fills the room. It has been her speaking to Josette, not Barnabas... 
           Barnabas returns to the shed.  The coffins are ready.  Barnabas
        tells Ben, "You will be rewarded for your service".  Ben replies, 
        "I don't want no reward for this!".  Barnabas asks, "Is the carriage
        ready?" Ben replies, "It's in the woods like you asked".  Barnabas
        orders, "Bring it here now".  Ben leaves to do so.  Josette's voice
        starts to call, "Barnabas! Barnabas! Can you hear me?"  Barnabas
        exclaims, "Josette!"  The voice replies, "Yes. I'm waiting for you,
        Barnabas. Come to me, Barnabas."  Barnabas asks, "Where are you?"  The
        voice replies, "Waiting for you, at Widow's Hill".  Barnabas exclaims,
        "You're not Josette!  Angelique!  It's you!  What do you want me 
        to do?"  Josette's voice continues, "I'm waiting for you here at 
        Widow's Hill..."  Barnabas exclaims,  "No, Josette!  You must not go
        there!  Don't let her trick you, Josette!  Don't go there!"
           Riggs breaks open the lock on Josette's door.  He and Natalie
        rush into the room.  Natalie exclaims, "She's gone!"  Riggs points
        at the open secret panel and says, "She must have gone out through 
        there".  Natalie gasps, "Widow's Hill!!"
           Josette is at Widow's Hill, calling, "Barnabas! I've come to
        you. Where are you?"  The air fills with laughter.  Josette asks,
        "Who is it?  Who are you?"  The voice replies, "Don't worry, 
        Josette.  Your Barnabas will be here soon."  Josette finally 
        recognizes the voice and exclaims, "Angelique! You!"  Angelique 
        replies, "Yes."  Josette asks, "What are you doing here?  Why have 
        you come back?"  Angelique replies, "I've always been your loyal 
        servant,  Mademoiselle.  I came here to warn you".  Josette asks,
        "Warn me? Of what?"  Angelique's voice replies, "Of what lies ahead 
        for you if you go with Barnabas".  Josette says, "He loves me!" 
        Angelique's voice continues, "If he loved you, he would not be 
        planning to change you into what he has become.  Do you know what 
        that is?  He's planning to kill you, Josette, and after he kills 
        you, he'll bring you back to life.  But you will not be as your 
        are.  He will turn you into a grotesque, bloodthirsty creature.  Look
        over the cliff and see what you will become!  Look into the future
        and see what he will make you!"  Josette looks and sees a vision of
        herself as a vampire, pale, semi-rotted, blood dripping from her 
        mouth.  She begs, "Take it away, please! I can't look at it! Take 
        it away, please!", but Angelique's voice orders, "Keep looking
        at it, Josette!  This is what Barnabas will do to you!"  Josette
        continues to beg, "Take it away, I beg of you!"  Barnabas arrives and
        asks, "Josette! Are you all right?"  Josette screams, "Don't come
        any closer to me!  I know what you are!  I don't want to become
        what you are!  I'd rather die than let that happen!"  Barnabas
        manages to grab Josette, but she struggles free and throws herself
        off the cliff.  Barnabas screams, "Josette! Josette! Josette!"
        The air fills with Angelique's laughter...

         Ben is at the tomb.  He hears someone and asks, "Who's there?"
      Barnabas comes in.  Ben can tell from the expression on his face
      that something's wrong and asks, "What's happened? What's wrong?
      Someone see you?"  Barnabas replies, "No".  Ben asks, "What is it?" 
      Barnabas replies, "Josette..."  Ben exclaims, "You've killed
      her!!"  Barnabas replies, "No, not me.  She's dead.  I couldn't stop 
      it.  She stood on Widow's Hill.  She knew what I had become.  She 
      died, hating me..."  Ben tells him, "It was the curse!"  Barnabas
      continues, "I saw Josette's crushed body on the rocks below.  And 
      now I have eternity without her..."  Ben asks, "But she's not coming
      back?" Barnabas replies, "No.  She chose to die in another way.
      I have no power over her.  I will never have power over her again.
      That was the curse, that everyone who loves me will die..."  Suddenly he
      exclaims,  She is here!  Angelique!  I will end your curse!  I will 
      go to the house and tell my father what I've become and let him do 
      what is necessary!  I would rather be in a coffin with a stake in 
      my heart than be the way I am!"  Suddenly, the gate slams shut.
      Barnabas and Ben try to open it, but find that it will not open.
      Realizing that it's Angelique, that she will not let him escape 
      the curse so easily, Barnabas says, "You have robbed me of Josette.  
      I will never love again!  I will never show love to another human 
      being.  Your curse is over, so go back to your grave!!"  The gate 
      opens by itself.  Barnabas exits.  Ben starts out too, but Barnabas 
      tells him, "No, do not follow me, Ben.  If this is what eternity is 
      to be, then let it begin..."  Inside, the tomb fills with Angelique's
      laughter.
          Joshua is sitting at the desk in the drawing room of Collinwood
      writing something with a quill pen, dipping it into an inkwell in
      a gold inkstand every few words to replenish the ink.  Naomi comes down
      the stairs and into the room.  Joshua asks, "How is Madame DuPres?"
      Naomi replies, "She's cried herself to sleep" and exclaims, "Oh,
      Joshua!"  Joshua tries to comfort her, "My dear...".  Naomi continues,
      "I loved Josette the moment she came here!  She was the woman I would've
      chosen for Barnabas myself".  Joshua tells her, "My dear, you must 
      not think of him now.  You must not think about them now."  Naomi 
      says, "It seems there's no name I mention that doesn't have grief 
      attached to it."  Joshua continues to try to comfort her, "You must 
      not think of them.  Nothing you can do can bring any of them back." 
      Naomi moans, "In a war, you expect to lose members of your family.
      But we're not in a war now..."  Joshua says, "Except with the powers 
      of darkness."  Naomi says, "You've been listening to Abigail again. 
      I will not believe that any of this has been caused by Witchcraft!"
      Millicent comes into the room. Joshua tells her, "My dear cousin, 
      we have some very sad news for you.  Josette is dead".  Millicent
      coldly replies, "Indeed.  Well, at least she died still loving 
      Barnabas".  Naomi exclaims, "Millicent!" Naomi and Joshua are 
      shocked at Millicent's nonchalent attitude.  Naomi asks, "Are you 
      feeling well?"  Millicent replies that she is.  Joshua asks, "Is 
      Lt. Forbes going to be coming tonight?"  Millicent replies, "Tonight? 
      No.  He will not be welcome here tonight".  Joshua remarks, "I'm 
      sure Lt. Forbes is grieving his own loss.  He seemed extremely fond 
      of his sister".  Millicent replies, "Yes, fonder than I would have 
      thought possible" and turns to leave.   Naomi asks, "Where are you 
      going?"  Millicent replies, "For a walk".  Naomi warns her, "It's not 
      safe out there!", but Millicent replies, "I'm perfectely safe" and
      leaves.  Naomi remarks, "She's acting so strangely".  Joshua replies,
      "Death affects each of us differently".
         Barnabas is at Jeremiah's grave.  He says, "Jeremiah! I'm glad 
      you can't see me now.  Now Josette will lie next to you, the husband 
      she did not love.  Again, the choice was not her own, and again 
      Angelique has won".  He is startled to hear a voice behind him say, 
      "Cousin Barnabas!  You're back!"  He turns and sees Millicent standing 
      there.  Millicent continues, "How glad I am to see you!  I need a 
      favor from you very much!"  Another voice calls,  "Miss Collins!" 
      Millicent turns to see who it is.  It is Ben.  While her head is 
      turned,  Barnabas vanishes into thin air.  When Millicent turns back, 
      she is surprised to see that Barnabas is no longer there.  She calls,
      "Mr. Collins! Where are you?"  Ben comes up to her and asks, "Are you
      all right?"  Millicent replies, "No, I am not! I saw Barnabas, but he 
      ran away from me!"  Ben says, "You know you didn't see Mr. Barnabas. 
      He's away".  Millicent insists, "He's back, but he didn't send any 
      advance notice.  Or maybe he did, but nobody has told me".  She 
      tells Ben, "I'm here to see my final resting place".  She orders 
      Ben to show her the Collins family mausoleum.  They go to the mausoleum.
      Millicent looks around, then points to the middle sargophagus and
      says, "Yes. Right here, besides Sarah.  You will remember, this is
      the one I've chosen, and you will see to it that today is the
      date that is engraved here, for today is the day I truly died.
      Barnabas would understand."  Ben insists, "He's in England!" 
      Millicent says, "Maybe he's heard about Josette's death and come 
      back".  Ben protests, "Josette died only a few hours ago!"  Millicent
      asks, "Why are you trying to convince me I didn't see him?"  Ben
      tells her, "Don't tell anyone what you thought you saw".  Millicent
      asks, "Why not?"  Ben replies, "It would only cause his mother more 
      grief".  Millicent exclaims, "Ah! I see! You do not want me to 
      know he's back!"  Ben tells Millicent, "Miss Collins, I'll take you 
      home", but Millicent abruptly leaves by herself.
         Joshua is still in the drawing room writing something.  Naomi
      comes into the room and is surprised to see he is still writing.
      He tells her he's written a letter to Andre DuPres in New York
      telling him what's happened to Josette.  Naomi asks, "Can I see it?" 
      Joshua replies, "No, I've finished and sealed it already".  He 
      explains that he's working on something different now, "a deposition 
      for the Miss Winter's trial.  The trial starts tomorrow".  Naomi asks,
      "Tomorrow?"  Joshua continues, "It will not affect us.  Abigail will 
      represent us at the trial".  Naomi says, "I will represent us too!",
      but Joshua says, "Abigail will be the only Collins at the trial!"
      Naomi replies, "She will not!"  Joshua says, "If this family is to
      get out of this without disgrace, we must leave this to the court.
      If any of us should get hysterical on the stand, we would lose our
      dignity".  They are interrupted by Millicent rushing into the room
      and asking, "Where is he? I saw him at the graveyard".  Naomi asks,
      "Who?"  Millicent replies, "Barnabas!"  Joshua exclaims, "He's in
      England!"  Millicent complains, "You don't want to help me either!
      Barnabas is the only one who can defend my honor!  Daniel is too
      young.  Barnabas has fought duels before!  I saw him by Jeremiah's
      grave!"  Naomi tells her, "You couldn't have! You just have a very
      vivid imagination".  Millicent complains, "Why won't you tell me? Are
      you afraid?  You're keeping Barnabas from me and he's the only one who
      can defend my honor now!"  Joahua asks, "What do you mean?"  Millicent
      replies, "Barnabas must kill Nathan".  Naomi exclaims, "Millicent!"
      Millicent blurts out, "Nathan is married! Suki was Nathan's wife!"
      Joshua exclaims, "No!"  Millicent continues, "Barnabas must do what
      my brother would do if he were older!  But he ran away from me!  Ben
      was there too.  He saw him too, but he lied to me that he didn't!"
      Joshua asks, "Ben was there?!"  Millicent replies, "Yes, and he must
      be punished for lying to me".  Joshua replies, "Yes".  Millicent
      continues, "If I have seen Barnabas and you have not, then you must
      find out why".  Joshua replies,  "Yes. I must find out why".

         Vicky is in her cell.  A guard lets Peter in.  Vicky exclaims,
      "Oh, Peter! I'm so glad to see you!", but Peter just stands there. 
      Vicky asks, "What's wrong?  Tell me, please!  What's happened?  I 
      know something's happened.  Please tell me!"  Peter tells her, "You 
      are going on trial today".  Vicky replies, "Today? Good!"  Peter
      asks, "Good?"  Vicky replie,s "Well, isn't it? I'm innocent. The 
      judges will have to believe me!  I want to get it over with!"  Peter
      tells her, "There's something else you should know.  Josette Collins 
      died last night.  She jumped from Widow's Hill".  Vicky moans, "I
      couldn't stop her..."  Peter replies, "No".  Vicky says, "Poor
      Josette.  I tried to help her.  I tried to tell her everything I
      knew."   Peter notes, "The fact that you prophised her death isn't
      going to help you at the trial".  Vicky is confident she'll be
      acquitted, saying, "All the evidence is so circumstantial!  And Mrs.
      Collins is going to testify on my behalf!  She's promised!"  Peter
      starts to say, "Vicky..."  Vicky interrupts, "She won't?"  Peter
      replies, "No".  Vicky protests, "But she promised!"  Peter tells her,
      "I've just gotten a letter from Mr. Collins.  He's not even going to
      let her go to the trial".  Vicky exclaims, "He's stopped her! She
      wouldn't have broken her promise!  I know that!"  Peter manages to
      calm her down, then asks, "Ready?".  Vicky replies, "Yes". They leave
      for the trial.
        The trial begins.  Vicky is to appear in front of a tribunal of
      three judges, with no jury.  The lead judge starts the trial,
      "Victoria Winters, you have been charged with Witchcraft. Do you
      plead guilty or not guilty?"  Vicky replies, "Innocent, your honor!"
      Trask interrupts, "You have one last chance to confess your powers!"
      Peter objects, "She's not in possession of any powers!"  Trask remarks,
      "A very interesting choice of words, because this case is all about
      possession, the possession by evil of..." The lead judge tells Trask
      to stop editorializing and call his first witness.  Trask calls
      Abigail to the stand.  Abigail is sworn in.  Trasks tells her, "Tell
      the court about the true beginnings of this case, the arrival of Miss
      Winters at Collinwood!"  Abigail starts her testimony, "We were still
      living in the old house at the time. The date was October 12. I
      remember because I had engaged the services of a Miss Phyllis Wick
      of Boston as governess.  She had the highest references.  She was to
      arrive that day."  Trask asks, "And did she?"  Abigail replies, "No.
      Some evil force prevented her from coming." Peter suggests, "Perhaps
      she changed her mind". Abigail replies that Miss Wick was on the
      carriage which overturned, and but was nowhere to be found afterwards.
      Trask asks her to give the court the details of Vicky's arrival. 
      Abigail tells the court, "Barnabas was going to go into Collinsport
      to pick up Miss Wick.  As he was waiting for his carriage, this
      CREATURE came towards him.  He had never seen her before in his
      life, but she came towards him calling, 'Barhabas! Barnabas!'.
      You should have seen the clothes she was wearing!  My nephew, a
      very nice man, asked her into the house, and with that, sealed
      his own fate and that of the rest of family!  That night, the
      reign of terror started in the house!"  Peter objects that there's
      no evidence of any link between the two events.  Trask replies, "We 
      will prove that now".  Abigail continues her testimony, recounting
      to the court Joshua's mysterious disappearance, the mysterious cat,
      and Joshua's magical reappearance in Vicky's room, the cat disappearing
      at the same time.The court asks, "Did he have any memory of where he
      had been?" Abigail replies, "None! It is clear, witchcraft had taken
      hold of him!"  Trask asks her to tell the court about the exorcism.
      Peter objects that since it was Trask who performed the exorcism, he
      should be the one who should testify about it so he can be crossexamined.
      The court agrees.  Trask takes the stand.  The court asks, "Exactly what
      does exorcism accomplish?"  Trask explains, "Evil cannot withstand the
      power of the Lord and must flee the house."  He recounts how he
      conducted the rite of exorcism and how he caught Vicky as she was
      trying to flee from the house,  saying, "..and the witch came forth!"
      Vicky exclaims, "I didn't run from the house because of the exorcism!
      I ran because there was a fire in the house!"  Abigail shouts, "I went
      into the room soon after, and there had been no fire there!"  Everyone
      starts shouting. The lead judge shouts, "Order in the court!"
         Natalie has been called to the stand and is testifying, "I went
      to Miss Winters and begged her to lift her evil spell on Josette, but
      she refused.  I begged her to give me any information if she could.
      She told me what would happen the day of Josette's death.  She said
      Josette would lose a black onyx ring.  I knew Josette did not have a
      ring like that, but when I got back to Collinwood, she had it on."
      The court asks, "Where did she get it?"  Natalie replies, "She would
      not tell me.  That was the first time she's ever lied to me". She
      then recounts how Josette lost the ring as foretold, and how
      everything else Vicky had said would happen started to happen.  Vicky
      exclaims, "I only knew because I had read it in a book!"  Natalie
      finishes her account, telling the court how the door blew open and
      could not be closed, how it slammed shut as soon as she stepped into
      the hallway.  She finishes, "And when I got back, Josette was gone.
      That was the last time I saw my niece".  The lead judge tells her,
      "The court would like to thank you for coming to testify in your time
      of grief.  We have a few more questions for you.  You say this book
      published in 1965 according to the frontispiece, was brought here
      by Miss Winters.  You and your niece read it?"  Natalie replies, "Not
      all of it.  It was hard to read about tragedies that have not yet
      happened."  The judge asks, "Where is this book?"  Natalie replies,
      "It was in Josette's room".  The judge asks, "It is there no longer?"
      Natalie replies, "No" and tells about the night she saw Vicky in
      there, and Vicky's strange disappearance.  She continues, "Reverend
      Trask and I went to the jail".  The judge asks, "And was she there?"
      Natalie replies, "She was in her cell".  Trask exclaims, "This witch
      has the ability to be in two places at once! What more proof do we
      need?"  Peter interrupts, "There's something you must know!"  Vicky
      exclaims, "Peter, no!", but Peter continues, "I let her out of her
      cell that night!  I also know how she got out of that room!"  Trask
      says, "If that's true, then he's under her spell!  He must be relieved
      of his duties immediately!"
         The session has ended.  Vicky is back in her cell.  Peter is there
      with her.  Peter explains, "I just couldn't let them think you were
      in two places at once". He tells her they're going to have more
      problems the next session, that the judges are going to want to
      know more about the book.  Vicky moans, "If only Mrs. Collins could
      testify!  If only Barnabas were alive and could testify!  He knows I'm
      innocent.  Ben does too."  Peter asks, "How do you know?"  Peter
      replies, "When he came to get me, he said he knew I wasn't the witch".
      Peter tells her he thinks this is important and asks her to explain
      further.  Vicky tells him, "When he came to get me at the stables,
      I thanked him and asks him why he would go to the risk of helping me
      and put himself in danger.  He looked at me seriously and said he knew
      I wasn't the witch".  Peter asks, "Did you ask him what he meant?"
      Vicky replies, "No, I didn't think to at the time".  Peter calls out,
      "Guard!"  Vicky asks, "Where are you going?" "To see Ben.  Vicky,
      everything's going to be very different tomorrow.  Ben is going to
      help us.  Don't worry!"

         Millicent is in the drawing room of Collinwood.  There is a knock
      at the front door.  Millicent seems to be preoccupied in thought
      and just sits there.  The knocking continues.  Millicent finally
      goes to open it.  It's Peter Bradford.   Millicent asks, "Who are 
      you?"  Peter replies, "My name is Peter Bradford, and I'm looking 
      for someone named Ben Stokes".  Millicent tells him, "Ben's not here 
      right now".  Peter asks, "Do you know where I can find him?"
      Millicent replies, "At a cemetary called Eagle Hill, digging a 
      grave for Josette Collins".  Peter starts to say,  "Thank you, 
      Miss...", but Millicent interrupts him, "Are you going to the 
      graveyard to look for Ben?"  Peter replies, "Yes".  Millicent asks,
      "Could I impose on you to do me a favor?  If while you are at the 
      graveyard you chance to meet Cousin Barnabas Collins, ask him to come 
      see me."  Peter asks, "Barnabas Collins?"  Millicent replies, "You 
      see, the family is keeping him from me.  But why is a complete 
      mystery to me."  Peter protests, "But Barnabas Collins is dead!" 
      Millicent exclams, "What a silly thing to say! Barnabas, dead?" 
      and laughs.
         Peter has left.  Millicent is inside looking at the portrait of
      Barnabas.  She says to it, "Imagining anyone thinking you were dead,
      Barnabas!  What an absurd young man!"  There is another knock at 
      the door.  Millicent opens the door, sees that it's Nathan and tries
      to slam the door in his face, but Nathan manages to force his way 
      in.  Millicent protests, "Sir! You are not welcome in this house!" 
      Nathan says, "Millicent, I must speak to you!"  Millicent orders,
      "Lt. Forbes, leave this house at once!", but Nathan replies, "No. I'm 
      not leaving until you've heard what I have to say".  Millicent 
      threatens, "I will summon Cousin Joshua to evict you from the 
      premises!"  She goes into the drawing room.  Nathan follows her. 
      He asks, "Millicent, why won't you listen to what I have to my 
      explanation?"  Millicent remarks, "You still think I'm that innocent 
      creature you deceived.  I am not.  I have been shown the facts of 
      life."  Nathan says, "I had every intention of telling you about 
      Suki as soon as I was free of her!"  Millicent remarks, "I was too 
      gullible to see that my fortune made me more attractive than I am".
      Nathan lies, "Your money never meant anything to me.  If you had 
      given it all away, I still would have loved you".  Millicent remarks,
      "I never thought the day would come when my honor would need 
      defending."  Nathan asks, "What do you mean?"  Millicent replies,
      "I have decided that my cousin Barnabas will my honor by fighting 
      you in a duel".  Nathan points out, "But Barnabas is in England".
      Millicent replies,  "No, he is here.  I have seen him and Ben
      has seen him too."  Nathan asks, "When?"  Millicent replies, "I have 
      the feeling the family does not want me to know he's back because they 
      don't want him fighting the duel!  That means all your lies and 
      deceptions will go unpunished!  I cannot let that happen.  If no one 
      else will defend my honor, I'll have to do it myself!"  She picks up 
      a letter opener lying on the desk, and screams, "I hate you!  I hate 
      you!" and tries to stab Nathan with it, but Nathan manages to grab 
      her hand.  Joshua comes into the room, sees them struggling and
      shouts, "Millicent!"  Millicent stops, and Nathan takes the letter
      opener from her.  Millicent starts crying.  Joshua takes Millicent
      gently and tells her, "Come on, my dear. I will take you to your room".
      He then turns to Nathan and tells him, "You will remain here, Lt.
      I have something of great importance to discuss with you", then 
      leaves, taking Millicent with him.
         Joshua, having taken Millicent to her room, comes back down
      to the drawing room.  He tells Nathan, "If she had killed you,
      the loss would not have been mourned by this family".  Nathan remarks,
      "I see she's told you".  Joshua replies, "She's told me everything!" 
      Nathan says, "She didn't tell you the whole story!  I had a reason 
      for not telling her.  I was afraid I'd hurt her.  My marriage to Suki 
      was an unhappy one.  Suki was here to draw up the necessary papers to 
      dissolve it..."  Joshua interrupts, "It is very convenient for you 
      that your wife is no longer here to contradict your story.  It is 
      very convenient for you she was murdered".  Nathan exclaims, "Are 
      you accusing ME of killing her? How can you think something like 
      that?!"  Joshua replies, "Taking into account your unethical behavior, 
      it's easy".  Nathan says, "I swear, I didn't kill Suki! I hated her, 
      but I would never have killed her!"  Joshua says, "Then maybe you 
      could answer a few questions for me. Why was it necessary for her to 
      come here pretending she was your sister?"  Nathan replies, "We met 
      in the village.  I told her I had fallen in love with someone.  I 
      told her it would be better if Millicent didn't know until after the 
      divorce was final".  Joshua asks, "Why was she at the Old House that 
      night?"  Nathan replies, "We had to discuss some things we couldn't 
      discuss here, the terms of our divorce settlement..."  Joshua 
      interrupts, saying, "And she wouldn't agree to your terms so you
      killed her!"  Nathan replies, "No! She was already near death when 
      I got there!  What can I say to get you to believe I didn't kill 
      her?"  Joshua replies, "You don't need to say anything.  I believe 
      you.  I don't think you have even the crude sort of courage required 
      to murder someone.  But even if you did not kill her, your deception of 
      Millicent is bad enough!  It will not go unpunished!  I have every 
      intention of reporting your conduct to the Naval Department.  From 
      this moment, you are not welcome in this house, or on any of my 
      properties, including the shipyards!"  Nathan protests, "But my 
      official duties require me to go there!", but Joshua replies, "That 
      is the Navy's concern, not mine.  If you are found on any of my 
      properties, you will be shot!" 
         Ben is in the graveyard digging.  Peter comes and asks, "Ben 
      Stokes?"  Ben replies, "Aye. Who are you?"  Peter tells him, "My name 
      is Peter Bradford".  Ben remarks, "Oh, you're the one who's defending 
      Miss Winters. The family's talked about you".  Peter remarks back, 
      "Not favorably, I suppose".  Ben tells him, "They don't take kindly 
      to anyone defending the witch".  Peter asks, "You you believe she's 
      the witch?"  He tells Ben Vicky had said he, Ben, had said he knew she
      was not the witch at the stables and asks, "What made you say Miss
      Winters was not the witch?"  Ben replies, "I was just making a remark!
      She was afraid when I found her.  I wanted to make her feel better".
      Peter asks, "Do you believe there's a witch at Collinwood?"  Ben
      replies, "I don't know".  Peter asks, "Why did you tell Abigail
      you were sent by the witch?  What did you mean by it?"  Ben protests,
      "I've got work to do!  Mr. Joshua Collins expects me to have this
      grave finished...", but Peter continues his questioning, "Was it
      Miss Winters who sent you?"  Ben exclaims, "No!"  Peter asks, "Then
      who?"  Ben replies, "I can't tell you that!"  Peter tells him, "No,
      but you can go to court and tell them who it was".  Ben protests,
      "I can't!  If I testify at the trial, Mr. Joshua will be angry! I
      can't take the chance of making Mr. Joshua angry!  He has this
      terrible hold on me!  He can have me sent back to prison any time
      he wants!" Peter says, "But you know she's innocent!  You can't stand
      by and let her be condemned!  I think there's something else you're
      afraid of.  What is it?"  Joshua shows up and demands, "Mr. Bradford!
      What are you doing here?"  Peter replies, "Trying to Ben to testify for
      Miss Winters".  Joshua says,  "If you have coerced and intimidated
      him...Ben.  Did he?"  Peter remarks, "I think you're the one who has
      him coerced and intimidated.  Good day, Mr. Collins" and leaves.
      Joshua mutters, "Insolent young man!", then says, "Ben.  I have
      something very important to show you. It concerns my son, Barnabas".
         Joshua takes Ben into the Collins family mausoleum. There, he
      tells Ben, "Several disturbing facts have been brought to my
      attention.  Strange as it may seem, several people have claimed
      to have seen Barnabas wandering through the woods or the graveyard
      at night."  Ben exclaims, "That's impossible! Barnabas is dead!"
      Joshua replies, "Yes, but there must be some explanation for what
      they saw.  Several nights ago, I went into the secret room and opened
      my son's coffin, and you know what I discovered, Ben? I discovered my
      son's body gone!  I found the coffin empty!"  Ben exclaims, "Mr.
      Joshua!".  Joshua continues, "There must be some explanation".
      Ben suggests, "People imagine things".  Joshua angrily replies, "Are
      you telling me that I imagined seeing an empty coffin?!"  Ben remarks,
      "People don't just get out of coffins and walk away!"  Joshua tells
      him, "I will show you I wasn't imagining what I saw, then you will
      start answering a good many questions!"  He opens the secret door and
      takes Ben into the secret room.   He tells Ben to open the coffin.
      Ben reluctantly does so.  Joshua is shocked to see Barnabas lying
      in there.

         It is now night.  Joshua has left.  Ben, who had returned to 
      digging returns to the Collins mausoleum.  Barnabas awakens and 
      comes out.  Seeing Ben there, he asks, "Why have you stopped your 
      work?"  Ben replies, "The sun's gone down".  Barnabas asks, "Is 
      your task determined by the setting or rising of the sun?"  Ben
      replies, "No"  Barnabas orders, "Then continue your labors".  Ben
      tells him,  "You don't want to go out there".  Barnabas asks, "Why 
      not?"  Ben replies, "I don't want you to see what I'm  doing".
      Barnabas starts to become irrational and shouts,  "Why? Is it 
      because you're afraid?  Afraid I might be offended by the sight 
      of a hole in the ground?  Afraid I might be offended by the sight 
      of the man digging it and hurl him into it?"  Ben meekly says,
      "Barnabas, I have work to do", but Barnabas angrily shouts,  "Josette
      is dead! How dare you dig her grave!"  He grabs Ben by the throat and
      starts strangling him.  Ben manages to gasp, "Mr. Barnabas!  Please!"
      Barnabas calms down, releases him and tells him, "Go.  Finish you
      work".  Ben asks, "You'll stay in here, won't you?"  Barnabas asks,
      "Are the stars out tonight?"  Ben tells him they aren't, that a mist
      from the sea has covered the sky.  Barnabas replies, "Good. I want
      this night to be dark.  I don't want the stars to see what is going
      to happen tonight.  I have deeds to do.  They were afraid of the
      plague, well, I will give them something to fear!  Why should anyone
      live if Josette dies?  My rage will burst these walls!  My anger will
      crush them!"  He vows to unleash a bloody reign of terror on
      Collinsport, but Ben manages to convince him not to hurt innocent
      people.  Barnabas calms down and says, "I want to see her.  I must
      look at her one more time."  Ben begs, "No! You don't know what the
      rocks at the bottom of the cliffs did to her!"  Barnabas asks,
      "Have you seen her?" Ben tells her he has, but only her hands,
      as the rest of her was covered by a shroud.  Barnabas asks, "Was
      she wearing the ring I gave her?"  Ben replies, "No, she'd lost it".
      Barnabas says, "Lost it? Then I must find it!  It was my pledge to
      give it to her.  It must be buried with her!"  Ben tells him, "You
      should never have given that ring to her.  Your father saw her wearing
      it and recognized it as yours".  Barnabas asks, "What did he do?"
      Ben replies, "He came here and opened the coffin.  It was dark.
      The coffin was empty".  Barnabas gasps, "So he knows! My father
      knows!"  Ben tells him, "He knows nothing.  First, he thought the
      body had been stolen by grave robbers.  Then when he came here again,
      he found you in your coffin.  Now he's satisfied it must have been his
      imagination".  Barnabas remarks,  "The danger is past, then", but
      Ben replies, "The danger is not past!  Let the ring go, I beg of you!"
      Barnabas tells Ben, "I can't let it go.  It was my pledge to her, and
      hers to me.."
         Trask and Abigail are in the drawing room at Collinwood.  Trask,
      speaking of Josette, says, "Another death more tragic than the
      last!  I grieve for this poor family!"  Abigail moans, "Will it
      never end?"  Trask replies, "It will end when the evil is destroyed
      at its source!"  Abigail asks, "Why is that judge prolonging the
      trial?  She is definitely a witch!  Why can't he see that?  Do you
      think she's using her powers on him?"  Trask replies, "No, I don't
      think that.  Our problem is that young upstart defending Miss Winters.
      I've made repeated attempts to show him the errors of his ways."
      Abigail asks, "Have you made clear to him the hazards of what he's 
      doing?"  Trask replies, "I've made the dangers to his soul very clear 
      to him".  Abigail asks,  "Yes, but have you made the dangers to him 
      in THIS world clear to him?  I'm sure he wants advancement..." She 
      tells him that such advancement will not be easy with the emnity of 
      the Collins family.  Trask asks, "You want me to go talk to young 
      Bradford?"  Abigail replies, "You must go further than mere talk".
      Trask tells her, "I believe I see my duty clearly. I will see to it 
      tonight".  Abigail remarks, "All this would be unnecessary if we 
      could only get our hands on the book!"  Ben comes into the room,
      carrying a bundle of firewood.  He explains to Abigail, "Mr. Joshua
      sent me to get more wood for the fire".  Abigail asks, "Mr. Joshua sent
      you? I don't think so".  Ben protests, "He did!", but Abigail says,
      "No! It was providence that sent you!  I have some questions to ask
      you!"  She turns to Trask and tells him, "Reverend, I will do my duty
      here! Do yours with dispatch!"  Trask leaves to see Peter.
         Abigail tells Ben, "Ben, I have something ot ask of you. I want 
      you to testify at the trial and tell what the witch forced you to
      do".  Ben replies, "She didn't force me to do anything".  Abigail
      protests, "But you said the witch sent you when you were caught in 
      my room".  Ben lies,  "I was just lying when I said that to save 
      myself!"  Abigail tells him, "I don't believe you.  What is your task
      tonight?"  Ben replies, "Digging a grave".  Abigail tells him, "I 
      have another task for you".  Ben protests, "This will take me all 
      night!", but Abigail tells him, "You can do both at the same time. 
      As you are digging the grave, think of its purpose.  It is for the 
      dead.  Then think of how hard your path to death will be when you 
      are sent back to the prison you came from for a life of hard labor! 
      While you're digging that grave, ponder that!"
         Peter is in his room at a cheap lodging house.  He is reading
      the Collins family history.  He thinks to himself, "I don't 
      understand it.  I wish I understood it..."  There's a knock at the 
      door.  Peter asks, "Who is it?"  Trask replies from outside the door,
      "Mr. Bradford! I wish to have a word with you!" Peter quickly hides 
      the book, putting it on a chair and throwing his coat over it.  He 
      lets Trask in and asks, "What is it you want?"  Trask replies, 
      "Strange, I was about to ask you the same question. What is it YOU 
      want?"  Peter snidely replies, "At the moment, your absence".  Trask
      gestures at a tin plate with the remains of a half-eaten meal on it
      and remarks, "Rather humble food you have to eat, isn't it?".  He
      gestures around the room and continues, "Your logdings, I'm sure this
      room gets cold on occasion.  I take it you can't even afford to have
      a wench come in and clean", and, reaching for Peter's tattered coat
      lying on the chair, says, "...and sew".  Just as Trask is about to pick
      the coat up and reveal the book, Peter pretends to get angry, puts his
      hand on the coat to prevent Trask from picking it up, and demands, "All
      right! Enough of this! Just say what you came to say!"  Trask continues,
      "You're young. You have a future, but what kind of future depends on you.
      The emnity of the Collins family would be a heavy burden on you..."
      Peter interrupts, "You're not going to stop me from  defending Miss
      Winters!"  Trask continues, "Do you want to lead a life of poverty?
      This food, not fit for human consumption, these squalid quarters,
      these tattered clothes..." Once again, he makes a motion to
      pick up Peter's coat.  Once again, Peter pretends to become angry,
      puts his hand on the coat, and orders Trask to leave.  After Trask
      leaves, Peter, frightened at how close Trask came to discovering
      the book, takes it and at first makes a motion to throw it into
      the fire in the fireplace, but then thinks better of it, wraps
      the book in his coat, and leaves.
         Peter goes to the graveyard.  There, he buries the book. Inside
      the Collins mausoleum, Barnabas comes out of the secret room.
      He hears sounds outside and calls, "Ben? Ben?"  Peter hears this
      and calls out, "Who is it? Who's there?"  Barnabas, hearing this,
      quickly retreats into the secret room and closes the door.
      Peter, who's come to the mausoleum to investigate, gets there
      just as the secret door closes. Peter looks around in the mausoleum.
      Ben returns, finds him there, and asks, "What are you doing here?
      You shouldn't be in this place!"  Peter explains, "I heard someone
      calling.  It was a voice I've heard before".  Ben lies, "You heard
      me calling you", but Peter says, "It couldn't have been. Whoever it
      was was calling YOU".  Ben remarks, "You must've imagined that".
      Peter tells him,  "I thought I saw a door closing here".  Ben
      remarks, "That must have been your imagination too.  Anyway, you
      don't have any right being here in the first place."  Peter lies, "I
      was taking a shortcut on the way home".  Ben warns him, "You'd better
      get out. The Collins family don't like trespassers".  Peter asks,
      "Are you sure it was you calling me?"  Ben replies, "Yes. Now leave.
      Mr. Joshua isn't as likely as I am to accept your story that you were
      taking a shortcut.  You'd better get out of here quickly!"  Peter
      leaves.  Barnabas comes back out of the secret room and heads for
      gate.  Ben asks, "Where are you going?"  Barnabas replies, "You heard
      him!  He said he saw the panel closing!  I can't allow him to remain
      alive!"  Ben protests, "He's not sure he saw anything!", but Barnabas
      replies, "I can't take the chance!"  Ben tells Barnabas, "He's Miss
      Winters only hope!"  Barnabas agrees, "All right, for Miss Winters".
      They come out of the mausoleum. Barnabas looks at the grave Ben has
      dug for Josette and remarks, "I see your work is done.  I don't know
      what my full powers are, but I will summon them full force to bring
      her back!"  Ben exclaims, "No!"  Barnabas continues, "I have made my
      conquest of the grave, now I will bring her back! This I swear!"

          Josette's funeral has been held.  The sun has set.  Only two
       mourners remain at Josette's grave, Abigail and Natalie.  Barnabas
       spies on them from inside the Collins tomb.  He thinks to himself,
       "Josette!  Why did you choose to die hating me?  Do you hate me still?
       I can't believe you do!  You are the victim of a witche's curse, just
       as I am!  But her curse has given me powers.  Perhaps I can use them
       to bring you back.   You must return to me, you must!"
          Outside at Josette's grave, Abigail tells Natalie, "Countess!
       The others have all gone.  Listen to that!   It's going to storm.
       We've got to go back before the storm starts", but Natalie replies,
       "You go.  I want to stay here".  Abigail tells Natalie, "Be sensible.
       There's nothing more you can do."  Natalie replies, "You wait in the 
       carriage.  I'd like to spend a few minutes here alone".  Abigail says,
       "I wish I could say something to console you".  Natalie replies,  
       "There's nothing anyone can say now.  There's nothing now but grief, 
       grief and despair for my Josette.  Wait a few minutes and I'll join 
       you".  Abigail leaves.  Natalie moans, "Oh, my dearest Josette, how I
       had hopes when we came to this place.  Life was not kind to you.  
       All it brought you was torment.  Perhaps death will bring you some 
       peace". Ben comes to the grave and tells Natalie, "I just came here 
       to place the tombstone.  I didn't know anyone was still here".
       Natalie replies, "Just me.  The others have all gone".  Ben says
       some words of consolation to her.  Natalie replies, "Everyone wished
       the best for her, but the worst has happened."  Ben says, cryptically,
       "Not the worst.  She died the way she wanted to" and takes Natalie to
       the carriage.
          Barnabas, still inside the mausoleum moans, "Lovely Josette, buried
       in the earth! Lost forever.  I cannot lose her!  Josette, you must
       return to me, you must! You must!!"
          Ben returns and goes to the tomb.  Barnabas asks, "Ben?"  Ben
       tells him, "It is done".  Barnabas moans, "No!!!", then asks, "Is
       anyone still out there?"  Ben replies, "They've all gone".  Barnabas
       says, "Then I will go to her, and perhaps she will hear me.  I
       refuse to believe she is gone forever.  If I have the power to
       call her back from the dead, I will".  Ben exclaims, "That's crazy!"
       Barnabas continues,  "I'll call upon all the powers of darkness to
       bring Josette back".  Ben says, "Mr. Barnabas! She doesn't want to
       come back!  She chose to die the way she did because she didn't
       want to become one of the living dead!"  Barnabas says, "She only
       did so because she was frightened!"  Ben begs, "Mr, Barnabass, let
       her rest in peace", but Barnabas becomes angry and says, "If you say
       one more word, I will kill you, I swear it!"
          Barnabas goes out to Josette's grave and calls, "Josette! Hear
       me!  Hear my voice!  Hear me calling to you.  I need you, I need you.
       You must return to me, you must!  Do you hear my voice?"  Josette's
       voice cries, "No..."  Barnabas exclaims, "Josette! You can hear my 
       voice!  You can hear me, can't you? You must return to me!  You must!"
       Josette's voice starts crying.  Barnabas asks, "Josette, why are you 
       crying, why?"  Josette's voice replies, "Barnabas, leave me!" 
       Barnabas asks, "Why do you say that?  I love you, I need you!  You 
       must return to me!", but Josette replies, "No, I must rest!"
          In the drawing room at Collinwood,  Abigail suggests to Natalie,
       "Perhaps some brandy will calm your nerves".  Natalie replies,  "No,
       thank you".  Abigail asks, "Is there anything I can do to help?"
       Natalie replies, "No".  Abigail remarks, "Perhaps you will have some
       consolation in knowing that the witch who did this is going to be
       punished!"  Natalie replies, "Yes!"  Suddenly, the window blows open.
       Abigail tells Natalie, "That's just the storm", but Natalie suddenly
       exclaims, "Listen!"  Abigail does so, but says, "I don't hear
       anything".  Natalie tells  her, "I thought I heard a girl sobbing.
       That sobbing.  I would recognize it anywhere.  It was Josette!"
          At the grave, Barnabas tells Josette, "Josette, don't cry.  I
       cannot let you go, I cannot!"  Josette's voice protests, "I'm dead
       now! I cannot come back.", but Barnabas says, "I cannot believe
       that.  Nothing can seperate us.  Our love transcends time and space!
       I will go to the house, the house that was to be ours, to the room
       that was to be our bridal suite, and wait for you there".  Josette's
       voice begs, "Barnabas, do not disturb my rest...", but Barnabas
       tells it, "Josette, you will come to me, you will!"  Josette begs,
       "Nooooo..."
          At Collinwood,  Natalie insists, "I heard her voice, I know I
       did!"  Abigail tells her, "You must've imagined it".  Natalie says,
       "I did not!"  Abigail tells her, "I'll take you up to your room",
       but Natalie insists, "I've got to go to her, I've got to go to
       Josette's grave!  Something's wrong, I know it!"
          Barnabas goes to the old house and goes to Josette's room.  There,
       he says, "You hear my voice.  I reach to you from beyond the grave.
       Listen to me, Josette.  I'm waiting for you.  Come to me now, come
       to me!"  At the cemetary, the soil above Josette's grave stirs...
       Barnabas continues, "Come to me, please! Please!"  At the cemetary,
       Josette has come out of her grave and is walking...  At the old house,
       Barnabas continues, "Josette, I know you can hear me!  You must
       respond to my calls!  Come to me!  Come to me!"  Josette continues
       walking... Barnabas continues, "Josette, you must heed my call and
       answer it!  I beg you!  I implore you!  I command you!  Return to me
       from the land of the dead!"
          Josette enters the old house and starts up the stairs...
       Up in Josette's room, Barnabas wonders, "Josette!... It's so silent
       now.  The clock has stopped!  Why?  What is happening?"  Josette
       opens the door and comes into the room.  Barnabas exclaims, "Josette!"
       Josette asks, "Why did you disturb my rest?"  Barnabas exclaims, "You
       have come back!!"  Josette replies, "You forced me to come back.  I
       am here against my will.  I must return to my grave!" Barnabas starts
       to walk toward Josette, but she says, "Don't come near me!"  Barnabas
       asks, "Why?"  Josette replies, "You do not understand".  Barnabas
       moans, "You still hate me!", but Josette replies, "No, I feel
       neither love nor hate.  I feel nothing now".  Barnabas announces, "We
       will be together for all eternity".  Josette replies, "You must
       forget me".  Barnabas tells her, "Nothing can make me forget you.
       We will be remain together", but Josette replies, "We cannot".
       Barnabas tells her, "You are back now, I cannot let you go!"  Josette
       replies, "I must go back to my grave".  Barnabas says, "I will not
       let you go".  Josette says,  "Don't force me to lift my veil and
       show you why I must go..."  Barnabas reiterates, "I will not let you
       go!"  Josette sadly tells him, "I do not want to lift my veil and
       show you what I have become, but I must.  Perhaps after I have, you
       will let me return to my grave and rest for all eternity".  She lifts
       her veil, revealing a face torn and ravaged by the rocks at the base
       of Widow's Hill.  Barnabas screams, "No!!! NO!!!!!"

         It is almost dawn.  Barnabas is standing by his coffin, which
      he has moved to the cellar of the old house.  Ben comes and tells
      him, "It's almost dawn.  You've got to be getting back".  Barnabas
      tells Ben, "She came to me, Ben. The power of our love was so
      strong that it could bring her back from the grave.  Josette came
      back.  But now I know the power of our love is so strong, I had to
      send her back to the grave.  I will never see her again! Why do we
      never learn to leave the past alone?  I must remember her the way
      she was when she was alive.  Ben, I made her look the way she does
      now!"  Ben tells Barnabas, "You must remember that she loved you!
      You must!  You must go back to the tomb now!"  Barnabas replies,
      "Never!"  He tells Ben that he has decided to stay at the old house
      now, the house where he and Josette were happy once, albeit briefly.
      He tells Ben he refuses to spend the rest of eternity in "solitary
      confinement" in the secret room in the mausoleum.  Ben warns that
      he'll be discovered here, but Barnabas confidently says, "No, no one
      comes here anymore".
         But Barnabas is wrong.  Daniel Collins, younger brother of
      Millicent, is sneaking around outside the old house.  He is about
      10 years old.  Abigail comes looking for him, calling "Daniel!
      Daniel Collins!", but Daniel hides behind a pillar and Abigail
      doesn't find him.  She looks at the door of the old house, prepares
      to go in, then thinks, "No, he wouldn't have gone in there" and
      leaves.  Daniel goes into the old house.  Inside, he runs into
      Ben, who's just coming up from the cellar and is preparing to
      lock the cellar door.  Daniel asks, "Ben, what are you doing here?
      What are you doing? Ben?"  Ben replies, "Looking for the right key,
      what does it look like I'm doing?"  Daniel asks, "Why are you doing
      that?"  Ben replies, "Because this door has to be locked, that's
      why".  Daniel remarks to Ben that his answers aren't very good.  Ben
      sarcastically remarks, "Maybe you're used to better answers in New
      York".  Daniel asks, "What's down there?"  Ben lies, "Nothing".
      Daniel asks, "Then why are you locking it?"  Ben replies, "Because
      I was ordered to".  Daniel asks, "Who gave you the orders?"  Ben
      replies, "Never mind.  Go back to Collinwood to play".  Daniel
      complains, "There's no one to play with at Collinwood".  Ben tells
      Daniel, "There's no one to play with here either, so go back
      to Collinwood!"  Daniel looks at the door and remarks, "When Millicent
      doesn't want me to see something, I leave, then wait till she's gone
      and then I come back!"  Ben tells Daniel, "Well, you ain't doing that
      here!  I'm taking you back to Collinwood!"  He grabs Daniel by the
      arm, but Daniel manages to wriggle free and runs off.  Ben gives chase
      and catches him just outside the front doors of the Old House, grabbing
      him by the collar.  Daniel screams, "I'll tell you the truth!  I'll
      tell you why I'm here!  You won't tell anyone, will you?"  Ben remarks,
      "Just because I have a tongue doesn't mean I have to use it".  Daniel
      tells Ben,  "I'm running away from home".  Ben asks,  "Where are
      you going?  Out west?  You've gotta plan things like running away.
      You need food.  Have you got food?"  Daniel admits, "No".  Ben asks,
      "Do you have an extra pair of boots?"  Daniel replies, "No".  Ben
      tells him, "Then you won't get far".  Daniel protests, "I didn't say
      I was going all the way out west".  Ben remarks, "Just far enough to
      scare your sister, eh?"  Daniel gestures towards the Old House and
      says, "I liked it here when we first got here".  Ben replies, "Well,
      you wouldn't like it now.  Some people say it's haunted!"  Daniel
      retorts, "I don't believe in ghosts!"  Ben tells him, "Go back and
      make your preparations.  You'll need food even if you're only going
      this far."  Daniel tells Ben, "I'll make a list and bring it here for
      you to check", but Ben replies,  "No! I won't be here.  I'll find
      you!"  Daniel leaves.
         A little later,  Daniel comes down the stairs at Collinwood very
      quietly, dressed to travel.  Abigail sees him from inside the drawing
      room, goes out into the foyer and calls, "Daniel! Come here! Where
      do you think you're going?"  Daniel replies, "Outside".  Abigail says,
      "It's getting dark! I really don't understand you.  I spent the entire
      morning looking for you!  What do you have there?"  She takes his
      list from him and reads it aloud, "'Food, extra boots, $5'.  What's
      this?"  Daniel lies, "A list of what I wanted for my birthday", but
      Abigail tells him, "I don't believe you!  Boys your age don't want
      boots for their birthdays!  Something else is going on.  Come into
      the drawing room!  There's something I want to talk to you about.
      That's why I was searching for you all morning".  She takes him into
      the drawing room, takes out Vicky's charm bracelet, shows it to him
      and asks, "You've seen this before, haven't you?"  Daniel replies,
      "Yes, it's Miss Winters'".  Abigail remarks, "Yes it is".  Daniel asks,
      "Why do you have it?"  Abigail replies, "Miss Winters is in jail right
      now.  No one else has a bracelet like this".  She points out one of
      the figures on it and says, "This is the devil..."  Daniel replies,
      "I know.  She showed it to us".  Abigail asks, "Did she ask you to get
      on your knees and worship him?"  Daniel replies, "No! That's silly!"
      Abigail asks, "Did she tell you what any of these other symbols
      meant?"  Daniel replies, "No".  Abigail asks, "I want to know what
      Miss Winters taught you and Sarah".  Daniel replies, "She told us one
      day we would fly through the air and go 6 or 7 hundred miles in one
      hour!"  Abigail asks, "What else?"  Daniel continues, "She told us one
      day we wouldn't have to learn arithmatic anymore because machines
      would do it for us, and she told us one day our voices could go
      through the air a great distance, just by magic!  I didn't understand
      that last one".  Abigail replies, "I understand it very well! I want
      you to go into Collinsport tomorrow with me. I want you to go to
      Miss Winter's trial and tell the judges what you've just told me".
      Daniel asks, "Why would I want to do that? I like Miss Winters better
      than I like anyone here!  She was nice to us.  Everyone else around
      here is always telling me what to do, even Ben.  This morning, he told
      me not to go to the old house.  He said it was haunted".  Abigail asks,
      "You saw Ben at the old house?"  Daniel replies, "Yes".  Abigail
      remarks, "But he has no right to be there.  What was he doing when
      you saw him?"  Daniel replies, "Locking a door. The cellar door".
      Abigail tells Daniels she'll go investigate.   Daniel points out, "But
      it's getting dark!", but Abigail replies, "The darkness doesn't
      frighten me!  There's an eternal light in each of us, as I hope
      you'll learn!"
         Abigail goes to the old house and runs into Ben at the front door
      just as she gets there.  She asks, "Ben!  Ben Stokes!  What are you
      doing here?"  Ben replies, "Just passing by, Ma'am.  I was just
      checking to see if the door was locked".  Abigail asks, "Well?"
      Ben replies, "This one, it ain't locked".  Abigail tells him,  "I
      have my own keys, and I'll lock it when I'm finished".  Ben asks,
      "Finished doing what?"  Abigail replies, "Now of your business. Go
      back to the new house and wait for the Reverend Trask.  He's coming
      soon.  When he arrives, tell him to wait for me".  Ben begs, "You
      can't go in there!"  Abigail replies, "You don't tell me where I can and
      can't go!"  Ben tells her, "I'm just trying to spare you some grief!
      That place is haunted!", but Abigail replies, "It is not! The Reverend
      Trask has exorcised it himself!"  Ben tells her, "If you want
      something from in there, I'll get it for you".  Abigail remarks, "You
      must think I'm stupid to trust you after catching you in my room!"
      Ben warns her, "Miss Abigail, if anything happens to you in there, it
      won't be my responsibility".  Abigail replies, "It'll be MY
      responsiblity!" and goes in.  Ben mutters, "You're right it'll be
      your responsibility.  Maybe you'll get what you deserve!!" and leaves.
         Inside, Abigail thinks to herself, "The witch sent him to my room.
      Maybe he's still in league with her!  He's hidden something of the
      witch's in there!  Perhaps it's even the book that would convict her!
      I know!  She gave it to him to hide!"  She takes out her keys, opens
      the cellar door, and goes down into the cellar.
         Down in the cellar, she sees Barnabas' coffin and exclaims, "A
      coffin!  Reverend Trask, I'll wait for him!"  The coffin starts to
      open.  Abigail, frightened, starts to shudder.  The coffin opens up
      all the way and Barnabas sits up.  Abigail starts to shudder even
      harder.  Barnabas asks, "Abigail, what are you doing here?"  Abigail
      screams...

         Abigail exclaims, "You are dead!"  Barnabas remarks, "You thought 
      you knew all about death, didn't you?  Well, you were wrong!" Abigail
      maons, "I know you are dead..."  Barnabas tells her, "But I am also 
      alive!  No one told you that was possible, did they?"   Abigail begs,
      "Stay away from me!", but Barnabas replies, "That is impossible now.  
      I told you once before it didn't pay to know everything.  You should 
      have listened to me! It's too late now!"  Abigail fearfully says,
      "I don't understand..."  Barnabas says, "It has taken this much to 
      make you say those words!  You used to have an answer for everything!" 
      Abigail says, "It's a spell! That's it! The witch has cast a spell! I 
      will go tell Reverend Trask!", but Barnabas tells her, "He can do 
      nothing! Nothing whatsoever!"  Abigail begs, "Don't give in to the 
      witch!"  Barnabas replies, "I have already given in."  Abigail begs,
      "Please! The evil spell can be exorcised!", but Barnabas replies, "Not
      now. Not by anyone".  Abigail exclaims, "The witch just wants to 
      frighten me!  You are just a vision!"  Barnabas replies, "If that's 
      what you think, then touch me".  Abigail continues to insist, "You 
      are just a vision!", but Barnbas grabs her hand and forces her to 
      touch him.  Abigail moans, "No....".  Barnabas tells her, "You were 
      right about one thing, Abigail.  There was a witch in the house".
      Abigail exclaims, "Victoria Winters!", but Barnabas tells her, "No! 
      Angelique!"  Abigail says, "No! She helped us!", but Barnabas tells 
      her, "She fooled you!"  Abigail says, "I will not believe Angelique
      was the witch!"  Barnabas tells her, "I am the way I am because I 
      killed her!  I am the victim of her curse!  Look at me!  See what I 
      am now!  I will be alive for all eternity!  Look at me, Abigail, see 
      what I am!"  Abigail says, "I won't! I won't! I won't!" and averts her
      head.  Barnabas insists, "You will!!!!" Abigail turns and glances at
      him.  Barnabas bares his fangs...
         Daniel is coming down the stairs at Collinwood.  Naomi sees him,
      calls him into the Drawing Room and asks him, "Where are you
      going?"  Daniel replies, "Nowhere.  Just wasting time".  Naomi
      says, "Well, let's waste it together, then.  Do you play whist?"
      Daniel replies, "I'm not allowed to play cards".  Naomi tells him,
      "Sit down.  I want to talk about Millicent".  Daniel remarks,
      "She cries a lot.  She never used to cry when we lived in New York.
      Maybe if we moved back to New York..."  Naomi tells Daniel, "I thought
      you might like to stay with Joshua and me here.  We'd like you to stay
      here.  This house needs a boy staying here.  Think about it, will
      you?"  There's a knock at the door.  Naomi answers.  It's Trask.
      After some brief greetings, Trask tells Naomi he's come to see
      Abigail and asks, "Aren't you going to ask me how the trial is going?"
      Naomi replies, "You know where my sympathies lie, though I'm not
      allowed to speak about them in public.  I'll go get Abigail."  She
      goes upstairs to do so.  Daniel walks out of the drawing room and
      prepares to leave, but Trask asks, "Where are you going?  You're one
      of the reasons I came here.  It's about time we had a little chat.
      You've been touched by a devil!  Your only hope is to talk to me.
      Yes, a devil has been with you every day.  Do you know who that
      devil is?"  Daniel replies, "The only person around here who looks
      like a devil to me is YOU!"  Trask tries not to act offended and
      continues, "You will learn that a devil does not always look like
      a devil.  Miss Winters, the witch..."  Daniel remarks, "One minute
      she's a devil, the next she's a witch...."  Trask asks, "What do
      you think she is?"  Daniel replies, "Nice".  Trask replies, "If she
      weren't nice, she wouldn't be an effective devil".  He tells Daniel
      he should learn to follow the path of righteousness like his Aunt
      Abigail.  Daniel points out, "But Aunt Abigail always seems unhappy,
      like she's eaten something that disagrees with her".  Trask asks,
      "What did Miss Winters teach you about God?"  Daniel replies, "She
      didn't.  She never spoke about Him".  Trask asks, "How is it possible
      to teach even one hour without mentioning GOD?!"  Daniel remembers,
      "Oh yes.  There was one time we did talk about God.  Sarah asked why
      God would create someting as frightening as thunder and lightning".
      Trask asks, "And what did she say?"  Daniel replies, "She said it was
      caused by atmospheric conditions".  Trask exclaims, "She is a witch!
      She was trying to make you doubt!  How else did Miss Winters praise
      the devil?"  Daniel replies,"She didn't".  Trask tells him, "You just
      didn't know it.  She prophesied the future, didn't she?  Did she tell
      you she came from another century?".  Daniel replies, "No, but I would
      think it would be great if she did!"  Trask remarks, "She has done her
      duty well!  She has you believing in the impossible now!"  Daniel
      remarks, "She told us the only way to get through life was by being
      curious".  Trask exclaims, "That's the devil's way!"  Daniel asks,
      "Why do you keep talking about the devil when I don't want to have
      anything to do with the devil?"  Trask replies, "Then you can still
      be saved!  Go with me to court tomorrow and tell them how the witch
      has been deceiving you!"  Daniel refuses.  Trask tells him, "You have
      the devil's mark on you!", and tells him the only way for him to get
      rid of it is to testify in court.  Daniel, frightened,  runs to Naomi,
      who's just come back down and is at the doorway and cries, "No! Cousin
      Naomi!  Cousin Naomi!  I don't have the devil's mark on me, do I?"
      Naomi replies, "No", then angrily accuses Trask of frightening Daniel.
      They get into a heated argument.  Daniel runs out the front doors.
         Daniel is running in the woods.  He tries to tell himself,
      "I won't be afraid! I won't be afraid!"  Dogs howl.  Daniel says,
      "That's just dogs...Maybe I should go home.  No! I won't!  HE'LL be
      there!!"
         Naomi is in the woods too, searching for Daniel, calling out,
      "Daniel! Daniel!"  Suddenly, she notices someone is there and asks,
      "Who is it?" then sees it is Trask.  She asks, "Have you followed me
      to frighten the child some more?"  Trask tells her, "You must go back
      to the house!  I have a feeling the devil called him!  My words did
      not drive him from the house.  The witch wanted to prevent me from
      questioning him!"  Naomi says, "He's running from YOU!", but Trask
      says, "I will find Daniel".  Naomi says, "No you won't! He'll see you
      and run!"  She tells him to go back to the house.  He refuses.  They
      argue.  While they are arguing, a little distance away,  Daniel
      comes upon Abigail, who appears to be sitting peacefully, her back
      propped up against the trunk of a tree.  Daniel screams, "NO!!!
      Cousin Naomi! Cousin Naomi!"  Naomi and Trask come running.
      Daniel points at Abigail and says, "LOOK!"  Trask touches Abigail
      lightly on the shoulder.  Abigail falls over onto the ground.
      She is dead...

      Director:    John Sedwick

         At the next session of the trial,  Trask tells the court about
      how they found Abigail in the woods dead, concluding with, "How I
      will always remember the look of unspeakable horror frozen on the
      face of a once kind and gentle woman, as if she had confronted evil
      itself.  That is exactly what she did see, evil, an evil sent to
      destroy her by the one person who would want to destroy her, Victoria
      Winters!"  Peter objects, "Honor! You will have that remark stricken
      fromt he record!"  A judge asks, "For what reason?"  Peter replies,
      "For the reason that it is irrelevant!  The court has alread seen the
      medical report listing the cause of death as heart failure."  Trask
      points out, "It also makes clear that she was in perfect health.
      She had no history of heart trouble prior to this".  The court
      agrees with Peter, saying, "More positive evidence than has been 
      presented so far is needed.  There is not enough evidence to justify 
      adding an additional charge of murder".  Trask asks, "What would you 
      consider sufficent evidence?"  The judge replies, "A witness who heard
      Miss Winters say she wanted to kill Abigail Collins".  Peter adds
      another objection, "If she killed her, why would she do so after
      she testified and not before?"  The judge replies, "That is logical, 
      but people do not always behave based on logic".  Trask asks for a 
      recess so that he can find a witness.  The court grants him one, 
      recessing until 2:00 in the afternoon. Everyone leaves except Peter 
      and Vicky.
         Vicky, seeing how worried Peter looks, asks, "Are you really that 
      worried?"  Peter replies, "Yes. Trask seemed very confident about
      finding that witness".  Vicky tells him, "I don't see who he can
      find.  I never threatened to kill Abigail".  Peter asks, "Abigail
      was cruel to you the moment you arrived, wasn't she?"  Vicky replies,
      "Yes."  Peter asks, "Did you speak to anyone about her?"  Vicky
      tells him she did, to four people, Barnabas, Jeremiah, and Ben
      Stokes.  Peter thinks aloud, "Jeremiah is dead, and Barnabas is
      unavailable*".  He tells Vicky he thinks Ben is the person Trask has
      in mind, but Vicky dismisses this idea, saying "No.  Ben Stokes hated
      the sight of Abigail".  Peter asks, "Enough to kill her?", but Vicky
      replies, "No! Ben is really a very gentle man".  Peter decides they 
      desperately need a witness who will testify on Vicky's behalf.    
         Peter and Vicky have gone to another room. 
         They discuss Nathan Forbes.  Peter asks, "Is Lt. Forbes a man of 
      his word?"  Vicky replies, "I think so".  Peter asks, "Why didn't you 
      tell me about him earlier?  If he's willing to testify, maybe he's 
      exactly what we need".  There's a knock at the door.  Peter opens it. 
      It's Nathan, whom he as apparently summoned.  Nathan asks, "Why have 
      you sent for me?"  Peter asks, "Are you aware that Abigail Collins is
      dead?"  Nathan replies, "No, what happened?"  Peter tells him.  Nathan
      asks, "Was it murder?"  Peter tells him, "The medical report says it 
      was heart failure, but Trask is claiming murder.  He's also claiming 
      Miss Winters did it".  Nathan asks, "But how could she if she was 
      in her cell?"  Peter replies, "Trask is accusing her of being a witch 
      who can be in two places at the same time.  I want you to be a witness 
      for Miss Winters".  Nathan asks, "What help can I give?  I'm sure Miss 
      Winters didn't kill Abigail Collins,  but I didn't see her last night. 
      I was in the village".  Peter tells him, "We only want you to be a 
      character witness, to answer a few questions, that's all.  You were 
      one of the few people who helped her. I want you to say you never 
      heard her say she wante to kill Abigail".  Nathan tells Peter he may 
      not be as good a character witness as he thinks.  Peter asks, "Why?" 
      Nathan explains, "I'm not in good terms with the Collins Family at 
      the moment, so any testimony I give may not be seen as unbiased".
      Trask comes into the room.  Peter angrily asks what he wants.  Trask 
      apoligizes, saying he didn't know the room was occupied and leaves, 
      closing the door behind him.  Peter tells Nathan, "It doen't matter 
      how you stand with the Collins family, we need you to testify!"  
      Unbeknownst to them, Trask is outside eavesdropping through the door...
         Court reconvenes.  Trask calls a witness, "I would like to call
      Victoria Winters to the stand".  Vicky takes the stand.  Trask remarks,
      "Victoria Winters, it was Abigail Collins who first recognized you as 
      the witch".  Peter objects vehemently, saying it has not been 
      established that Vicky is a witch.  The court agrees.  Trask 
      rephrases the question, "It was Abigail Collins who first suspected 
      you of being a witch".  Vicky replies, "Yes".  Trask asks, "Did you 
      hate her?"  Vicky replies, "No".  Trask insists, "You hated her!  You 
      hated her enough to kill her!"  Vicky exclaims, "No!"  Trask continues,
      "You must have had some kind of feeling about her.  What were they?" 
      Vicky replies, "I was confused and frightened".  Trask asks, "You 
      never said anything about wanting to see Abigail Collins dead?"  Vicky
      replies, "No! I never said anything like that!"  Trask hold up Vicky's
      charm bracelet and asks, "Do you recognize this?"  Vicky replies, 
      "It's my charm bracelet".  Trask introduces it as evidence and shows 
      it to the judges, "Note that it has all the signs of the zodiac,
      each one a sign of the devil!"  He then tells Vicky, "I want you to
      tell the court where you got this bracelet".  Vicky replies, "I can't 
      tell you".  Trask says, "Then perhaps I can tell you.  You got it 
      from Satan himself!"  Peter objects that that is conjecture. The 
      court agrees.  Trask continues, "It was found last night on the body 
      of Abigail Collins!"  Peter points out, "Abigail Collins had it a 
      long time before last night!"  Peter complains that he thought
      it had been settled that the matter of Abigail had been ruled as 
      not pertinent to the case unless a witness could be found.  Trask
      announces, "I have a new witness."  He announces calls his witness,
      "Lt. Nathan Forbes!"  Peter and Vicky are shocked.  Peter objects,
      claiming Nathan has been coerced by Trask into being a witness.
      The judge asks Nathan if he has been coerced.  Nathan replies that
      he has not.
         Nathan testifies.  Trask asks, "Lt, do you know the defendent
      Miss Winters?"  Nathan replies, "Yes I do".  Trask asks, "When did 
      you first meet her?"  Nathan replies, "At the Collins mansion".
      Trask asks,  "Are you aware that Abigail Collins considered 
      Miss Winters a witch?"  Nathan replies, "Yes".  Trask asks, "Did you 
      ever discuss with Miss Winters her feeling towards Abigail Collins?" 
      Nathan replies, "She made secret of the fact that she hated Abigail 
      Collins."  Trask asks, "Did she ever threaten to harm Miss Collins?" 
      Nathan replies, "Yes she did.  She was in the stables behind the old
      house, hiding from Abigail Collins and you.  I found her there.  She
      said that if there were anyone who deserved to be dead and buried, it
      was Abigail Collins".  Trask asks, "Didn't she also say that if she 
      had to power do do so, she would like to see Abigail Collins dead?" 
      Nathan replies, "Yes. That's what she said".  Peter and Vicky are 
      shocked.  Peter crossexamines Nathan, "Under what conditions did you 
      meet Miss Winters?"  Nathan asks, "What do you mean?"  Peter asks,
      "Isn't it true that you met Miss Winters shortly after she had already
      been accused of witchcraft?"  Nathan replies, "Yes"**.  Peter asks, "And
      did you untie her from the tree where Trask had tied her?"  Nathan
      replies, "Yes".  Peter asks, "And did you hide her in the new house?"
      Nathan replies, "Yes, but on the insistance of Barnbas Collins".
      Peter asks, "And did you bring her food?"  Nathan replies, "Yes."
      Peter says, "And the reason you did so is because you knew she was
      not the witch!", but Nathan replies, "No! I thought she was the witch
      from the very beginning!"  Peter asks, "You mean you helped her
      even though you thought she was the witch? That makes no sense, Lt!"
      Nathan explains, "I had no choice! I helped her because Barnabas
      Collins thought she wasn't the witch.  I valued his friendship,
      and he made it clear to me our friendship would be jeopardized if
      I did not help Miss Winters."  Vicky cries, "You're lying! Why are
      you lying?!"

      *  Funny, he seemed to know Barnabas was dead before.
      ** Wrong.  He met her before that.

         After the trial, Peter goes to Nathan's lodgings and confronts
      him, demanding to know why he lied on the stand. Nathan insists
      he was telling the truth.  They get into a fight.
         At Collinwood,  Joshua is in the drawing room brooding.  Naomi
      asks, "Joshua!  I didn't know you were still at home.  Aren't you 
      going to the shipyards?"  Joshua replies, "No. Please leave me alone",
      but Naomi tells him, "No, I will not.  You have not left the house
      since Abigail died.  I know how affected you were by it. If only you 
      would talk about it.  You would not be weak if you did".  Joshua says,
      "There's nothing to talk about.  It was a senseless death..."  Naomi
      replies, "It was a senseless life!"  Joshua, shocked, exclaims, "Naomi,
      do you have no respect for the dead?!"  Naomi replies, "I have
      respect.  That's why I'm thinking about her, thinking how I could've
      have made her life a better one".  Joshua remarks, "Utter nonsense.
      She led the life she wanted to lead.  You're too emotional.  That's
      why you're standing by the witch.  I'm going to the shipyards now.
      I have an appointment with Trask".
         Trask is in Joshua's office, waiting for him.  Nathan is in there
      with him.  Trask explains, "I'm to see Mr. Joshua Collins.  He's quite
      upset about his sister's death.  I'm to speak to him about it".
      Nathan asks, "Are you going to talk to him about me?  He's going to
      write a letter to the navy telling them of my actions.  I've done that
      family a great favor!"  Trask exclaims, "I will not be blackmailed!"
      Nathan replies, "And I will not forget that promise you made me this
      morning!"  Trask says, "I may have hinted that I might speak to Mr.
      Collins on your behalf...", but Nathan tells him, "You will do more
      than that!"
         Joshua comes to his office.  Only Trask is there now.  Trask
      tells Joshua, "I think that if you and Mrs. Collins would make an
      appearance in court, it will have an effect on the judges".  Joshua
      replies, "Absolutely not!  You don't sound too confident.  Do you
      think there's a chance Miss Winters won't be convicted?"  Trask
      replies, "I think we've made much progress.  Especially the testimony
      by Lt. Forbes".  Joshua says, "I don't want to hear about him!!!",
      but Trask tells him, "Lt. Forbes has done the Collins family a great
      favor.  Surely you'll reconsider.  If Miss Winters is conviceted,
      it'll be because of Lt. Forbes' testimony".  Joshua replies, "Bring
      him in, and leave us alone!"
         Trask does so and leaves.  Joshua tells Nathan that he will
      not write a letter to the navy provided that he get a transfer out
      of Collinsport so that he never has to see him again.
         Peter goes to Collinwood and tells Naomi about Nathan's testimony.
      Naomi is shocked and asks, "Why would Lt. Forbes lie?"  Peter tells
      her, "The judges believed him.  You have to go to court and testify!"
      Naomi protests, "I can't!"  Peter asks, "Would you rather see her
      die?  That's exactly what's going to happen if you're not willing
      to do something!"
         Naomi is in the drawing room alone, Peter having left.  Naomi is
      pouring herself a brandy.  Joshua returns from the shipyards.  He asks,
      "Is that why you suggested I go to the shipyards?"  Naomi tells him,
      "Joshua, Peter Bradford was here.  Lt Forbes lied on the stand!" 
      Joshua insists, "He didn't!"  Naomi continues, "He testified that 
      Miss Winters wanted Abigail dead!  You know that isn't true!"  Joshua
      replies,"I know nothing of what goes on in a witch's mind!"  Naomi
      says, "She is not a witch!  You forbade me from testifying, and I 
      have obeyed, but I can no longer!  I don't care about our dignity.  
      We can not stand by uninvolved!" and gets up to leave.  Joshua asks,
      "Naomi, where are you going?"  Naomi replies,"I'm going to get my
      cloak and go to court!"  Joshua warns, "You will be locked in your
      room!"  Naomi replies, "Then I'll get out, and not only will testify
      in court, I will never return to this house!"  Joshua exclaims, "This
      is madness!!"  Naomi replies, "No, the children are gone, and there's
      nothing left for me here".  She puts her cloak on and exits through
      the front door.  Joshua goes to the front door and shouts, "NO!! COME
      BACK HERE! AT ONCE! NAOMI!".  The sound of a carriage leaving is heard.

         Barnabas awakens.  Ben comes down into the cellar and exclaims,
      "Barnabas!"  Barnabas asks, "What is it, Ben?  Is something wrong?"
      Ben replies, "Aye. It's Miss Winters.  Word is that her trial is
      going to end on Monday and she's going to be convicted".  Barnabas
      protests, "But you said the trial was going well for her!  You said
      Trask was having trouble getting the judges to see his side!"  Ben
      replies, "That was true until Miss Abigail died.  She's not 
      responsible.  We both know that".  Barnabas sadly notes, "Yes, we 
      both know that".  Ben exclaims, "We've got to do something!  We can't
      let her hang for something..." He pauses then says, "...YOU did".
      Barnabas asks, "How could Abigail's death be blamed on Miss Winters?
      Ben, that's impossible!  What proof has Trask got that Miss Winters
      killed Abigail?"  Ben replies, "He got Lt. Forbes to testify against
      her". Barnabas, shocked, asks, "Lt. Forbes testifed against Miss
      Winters?!"  Ben replies, "Aye, he lied through his teeth".  Barnabas
      asks, "Why would he lie?"  Ben replies, "I don't know, but every word
      he said weighed against her".  Barnabas tells Ben, "YOU must testify!"
      Ben exclaims,"No!", but Barnabas tells him, "You're the only person
      who can go into court and tell the truth!  You must tell them about
      Angelique and what she did to my family!"  Ben says, "I want to help
      Miss Winters as much as you, but I can't!"  Barnabas points out,
      "Angelique can't stop you now", but Ben says, "She can!  I tried to
      tell about her before, once to you and once to Miss Abigail, but both
      times she stopped me.  I'm afraid of your father too..."  Barnabas
      assures Ben, "If you tell the truth, he'll be grateful to you".
      Ben remarks, "You make it sound so easy.  You make it sound like I
      can just go in there, tell the truth, and they'll believe me.  Trask
      will tell them I'm a convict!"  Barnabas tells him, "I assure you
      they'll believe you.  You want to help Miss Winters?"  Ben replies,
      "Of course I do".  Barnabas tells him, "Then you must put aside your
      fears and doubts and be at the courtroom when it opens tomorrow
      morning!"
         The next morning, court reconvenes. The court tells Trask to
      continue his case.  Peter interrupts, "I would like to move that
      Lt. Forbes' testimony be stricken from the record!" The judge
      asks, "On what basis?"  Peter replies, "Naomi Collins testified
      that he lied!"  The judge replies, "Mr. Bradford, it was Mrs. Collins'
      OPINION that Lt. Forbes lied.  I must let the testimony of both
      witnesses stand.  You can rest assured that the court will review
      both impartially", and refuses Peter's motion.  The judge again tells
      Trask he may proceed with his case, but Trask announces that he's
      finished, that he's resting his case.  The judge tells Peter,
      "Mr. Bradford, you may now present your case for the defence".
      Peter meekly tells the court that he's not yet prepared.  The judge
      asks, "You have no witnesses?"  Peter admits, "I have had great
      difficulty in getting anyone to testify".  Just as he says this, Ben 
      enters the courtroom to testify for Vicky.  Vicky tells Ben, "I'm 
      happy you're going to testify".  Ben replies, "I wasn't going to, but
      when I heard you were being blamed for Miss Abigail's death, I had
      to".  Peter announces,  "Your honor, I present my first witness,
      Ben Stokes".   Ben is sworn in.  Peter asks, "Ben, you know the
      defendent Miss Winters".  Ben replies, "Aye".  Peter asks, "After
      she was accused of being a witch by Miss Abigail Collins and this..",
      he gestures at Trask and continues, "..gentleman, you hid and proteced
      her.  Why did you do that?"  Ben replies, "Because I knew she was
      innocent".  Peter tells Ben, "Mr. Stokes, tell the court how you knew
      Miss Winters was not a witch".  Ben replies, "Because I knew who the
      real witch was!"  Peter asks, "You mean to say there WAS a witch at
      Collinwood?"  Ben replies, "Aye, she put a spell on me.  That's why
      I didn't say anything before".  Peter asks, "Mr. Stokes, will you
      tell the court the name of the witch?", but Ben just stands there,
      silent.  The judge prompts him, "Mr. Stokes, speak up, please".
      Ben blurts out, "It was Angelique Collins!  She was the witch!"
      Peter asks, "You actually saw Angelique perform acts of black magic?"
      Ben replies, "Aye. She even forced me to help her".  Peter asks,
      "How?"  Ben replies, "She made me go into Mr. Jeremiah's room and
      steal a lock of his hair".  Peter asks, "What for?"  Ben replies, "So
      she could cast a spell on Mr. Jeremiah and Josette".  Peter asks,
      "What kind of spell?"  Ben replies, "She wanted Mr. Jeremiah and Miss
      Josette to fall in love".  Peter asks, "Why?"  Ben replies, "Because
      she loved Mr. Barnabas and wanted him for herself".  Peter notes, "And
      she eventually got him".  Ben replies, "Aye".  Peter tells the court,
      "Let's look at the facts.  Josette DuPres came to Collinsport to marry
      Barnabas Collins, but then for no reason ran off with a man she hardly
      knew.  This was clearly the result of witchcraft.   Miss Winters had
      nothing to gain from all this, but Angelique did!  In the end, she got
      it!  She married Barnabas Collins!"  He asks that the court dismiss
      the case against Vicky in light of Ben's testimony, but the judge
      replies,  "You know we cannot do that until the prosecution has had
      the chance to crossexamine the witness".  The lead judge asks Trask if
      he would like to cross examine Ben. Trask replies that he would.
         Trask asks Ben, "Mr. Stokes, you testified that Angelique Collins
      practiced acts of witchcraft at Collinwood".  Ben replies, "Aye".
      Trask asks, "Where is she now?"  Ben lies, "I don't know".  Trask
      protests, "You must know.  You said you were under her spell", but
      Ben replies, "I'm not under it anymore".  Trask asks, "How is that
      possible?  You can't get out from under the spell of a witch!"  Ben
      lies, "She went away".  Trask asks, "Where did she go?"  Ben replies,
      "I don't know".  Trask asks, "When did she leave?"  Ben replies, "The
      day after Mr. Barnabas...went to England".  Trask asks, "You are quite
      certain about that?"  Ben replies, "Aye".  Trask asks, "And when did
      Mr. Barnabas go to England?"  Ben replies, "'Twas more than a month
      ago".  Trask exclaims, "I submit to the court that this man's
      testimony has been nothing but lies!  First he says Angelique Collins
      is the witch, then he says she left town more than a month ago!  But
      since then, the acts of witchcraft have continued! Indeed, they have
      intensifed!  Three more members of the Collins family have died tragic
      deaths and Collinsport has been subjected to a reign of terror!  Miss
      Winters is the witch responsible!"  Ben shouts, "No! It wasn't Miss
      Winters!  It was Angelique!"  Outside the courtroom, Angelique's ghost
      appears and turns SOLID.  She walks into the courtroom.  Ben gasps,
      "Angelique!  No!  It can't be!  That woman is dead!  She's dead!  I
      buried her in the woods!"  The judge orders the hysterical Ben to
      leave the court.  Ben does so, covering his eyes in terror as he
      passes Angelique.  Trask calls Angelique to the stand.
         Vicky tells Peter, "It's true! She is the witch! I never thought
      about it before, but it all makes sense now!"
         Angelique is sworn in and takes the stand.  Trask asks her, "I
      believe you were a servant at the old Collins mansion."  Angelique
      replies, "Yes."  Trask asks, "What opinion did you have of Miss
      Winters then?"  Angelique replies, "She was very kind".  Trask asks,
      "Shortly after the family moved into the new house, you married Mr.
      Barnabas Collins and moved into the old house".  Angelique replies,
      "Yes".  Trask asks, "Were you and Mr. Collins alone there?"  Angelique
      replies, "No".  Trask asks, "Who else was there?"  Angelique replies,
      "Miss Winters".  Trask asks, "Why?"  Angelique replies, "My husband
      did not believe she was a witch.  He was protecting her".  Trask asks
      Angelique to tell the court what she recalls about the exorcism.
      Angelique recounts, "I was in the master bedroom.  I heard a scream.
      It was Miss Winters, shouting that there was a fire in her room".
      Trask asks, "During the rite of exorcism, who was the first and only
      person to cross the threshhold?"  Angelique answers, "Miss Winters".
      Trask asks, "Afterwards, did you go to her room?"  Angelique replies,
      "Yes."  Trask asks, "Did you find any trace of fire in her room?"
      Angelique replies, "No".  Trask tells the court, "I have no further
      questions, your honor".  The judge asks Peter if he'd like to cross
      examine Angelique. Peter replies, "No questions, your honor".  The
      judge tells Angelique that she may now step down.  Angelique leaves
      the stand and exits the courtroom.  The judge tells Peter, "The
      defense may now proceed with its case. Present your next witness, Mr.
      Bradford".  Peter meekly replies, "Your honor, I have no witnesses".
      The judge asks, "You are resting your case?"  Peter asks for more
      time to find witnesses.  Trask objects, saying "He's had ample time!
      If he hasn't found any by now, he won't find any!", but the lead
      judge tells Peter, "Court will adjourn until 9 o'clock Monday morning.
      If you have no witnesses at that time, we will decied on a verdict.
      Until then, court is adjorned!" Outside, Angelique vanishes.
      Everyone leaves the courtroom.  Angelique reappears again and
      laughs.

         Peter and Vicky are in Vicky's cell.  Vicky tells Peter that
      many things make sense if you assume Angelique was a witch. She
      tells him about Barnabas' choking spell, then says, "And I found
      something in Angelique's room after that.  A toy soldier and a 
      handkerchief that belonged to Barnabas.  She was out of the room
      when I found them.  When she came back and saw me with them, she
      acted strangely, she seemed frightened."  Peter asks, "How did she
      explain the items in her room?"  Vicky replies, "She said that Sarah
      had left them there".  Peter notes, "It's possible she told the 
      truth".  Vicky admits, "It's possible, but..."  Peter interrupts,
      "I'm just asking you the questions Trask is going to ask you.  Did
      you question Sarah?"  Vicky replies, "No, because Angelique asked 
      me not to.  She was afraid if I scolded Sarah, she wouldn't come 
      to her room to play anymore.  If Sarah hadn't left them in her room,  
      what other reason would they be in there?"  Peter sadly notes, 
      "Sarah's the only one who could answer that question and she's dead".
      Vicky notes, "Peter, you said someone had to have a reason for a 
      crime.  Angelique had a reason.  She was in love with Barnabas. I saw 
      it in her eyes every time she looked at him.  I remember feeling sorry 
      for her", but Peter replies, "We can't go into court and say that.
      We have no evidence".  Vicky says,  "Except Ben's testimony..."  Peter
      says,  "Which the court has dismissed as the babblings of a madman".
      Vicky says, "I believe Ben".  Peter protests, "He said Angelique
      was dead!  Did she look dead to you?"  Vicky admits, "I suppose
      Ben WAS acting strangely".  Peter tells Vicky, "You've made me very
      curious about Angelique".  He tells her he think he'll do a little
      investigation into Angelique.  Vicky tells him she's frightened.
      Peter kisses her.
         Ben is wandering around on the docks, thinking to himself,
      "I must have known the witch wouldn't let me testify!  I'll never
      be able to help Miss Winters.  What will Mr. Barnabas say?  And Joshua
      will beat when he finds out I set foot inside that courtroom.  I should
      run away, but I'd never get away from Angelique no matter how far
      I go".  Nathan comes up to Ben and tells him, "I want to have a little
      talk with you.  I heard about your testimony in court today.  I want
      to know what you were talking about.  Why did you think Angelique
      Collins was dead?"  Ben replies, "Go away. I don't like you".  Nathan
      continues, "Perhaps you will find a few minutes of conversation very 
      profitable".  He hands Ben some paper money, remarking, "That'll pay 
      for a few nights at the Eagle".  Ben gives the money back to him, 
      saying, "Take your money and get out of here!"  Nathan mockingly says,
      "Well, a man of high moral character.  I wouldn't have thought it of 
      you".  Ben angrily orders, "Take your money and leave!"  Nathan replies,
      "Sure.  Why pay for information I already have?  I already know the 
      truth.  I know Barnabas Collins never went to England".  Ben exclaims,
      "Of course he did!"  Nathan asks, "Are you calling Millicent Collins 
      a liar? She said she saw him".  Ben replies, "Miss Millicent's not
      right in the head.  Everyone knows that.  It's because of what YOU did
      to her!"  Nathan says, "But the fact remains that she saw him.  She 
      said you saw him too.  So did I".  He tells Ben about the time he saw 
      a man who looked just like Barnabas near the woods.  Ben insists, "He's
      in England!"  Nathan asks, "What ship did he sail on?"  Ben replies,
      "I don't know".  Nathan says, "Because the ship doesn't exist! I
      checked the shipping records and found that no ship left Collinsport
      that night for England, nor for several weeks afterwards!"  Ben replies,
      "He didn't leave from Collinsport".  Nathan asks, "Where did he leave
      from?"  Ben replies, "I don't know, and even if I did know, I wouldn't
      have to tell you!"  Nathan remarks, "That doesn't matter.  I can check
      in the records for all the ships that left for England from this area
      and check their passenger lists".  Ben asks, "Why would you want
      to do that?"  Nathan replies, "Just curious".  Ben warns him, "You
      should stop your poking around if you know what's good for you!"
      Nathan asks, "Why? Are you afraid I'll find out someting the Collins
      family doesn't want known?"  Ben replies, "No, because if you don't,
      I'll kill you!  The Collins family has been through enough trouble
      without you poking around!" and leaves.  Nathan says to himself, "All
      right, Ben.  You've answered my question.  I know Barnabas Collins
      never went to England, and you know where he is.  I'll find out the
      rest myself!"
         Ben is returning to the old house.  Just as he is about to go
      inside,  Peter Bradford comes up to him and calls, "Ben!"  Ben quickly
      says, "I can't do anything for you!  I tried to help Miss Winters.
      I can't do anything more", but Peter tells him, "I didn't come here
      to find you.  I came here to find Mrs. Collins."  Ben tells him, "You
      won't find her here".  Peter tells Ben, "I've already checked all the
      boarding houses in town and she isn't staying at any of them.  This
      is the only other place she could be".  Ben again tells Peter, "She's 
      not here".  Peter asks, "Where is she?"  Ben replies, "You wouldn't 
      believe me if I told you".  Peter says, "Try me".  Ben tells him, 
      "She's in her grave".  Peter exclaims, "Grave?!"  Ben tells him, "I 
      told you you wouldn't believe me".  Ben turns to leave, but Peter begs,
      "Don't go!"  Ben tells him, "What you saw in court today was a ghost.
      Angelique's dead!"  Peter asks, "How do you know?"  Ben replies, "I 
      just know!"  Peter asks, "How did she die?"  Ben replies, "I know for 
      a fact she's dead because I buried her!"  Peter asks, "Where? I want 
      to see her grave".  Ben replies, "I'm scared to go anywhere near that
      grave!"  Peter points out, "You were also scared when you went to 
      testify today, but you did it because you wanted to help Miss
      Winters".  Ben agrees, "OK, come with me"
         Ben takes Peter to Angelique's grave in the woods and tells him,
      "I buried her here, under this tree".  Peter asks, "Are you sure?"
      Ben replies, "It's not the kind of thing I'd be likely to forget".
      Peter telsl Ben, "Get me a shovel".  Ben asks, "You're not going
      to..."  Peter replies, "I have to! I have to see for myself!"
         Ben returns with a shovel. He tells Peter, "I won't have anything
      to do with this."  Peter assures him, "It'll be my responsibility".
      He notices that Ben is acting strangely and asks, "What is it?"  Ben
      replies, "I thought I heard her laughing from far away".  Peter tells
      Ben, "Ben, give me that shovel!"
         Vicky awaits in her cell, thinking, "Peter, where are you?  Did you
      find Angelique?  You've got to do something, you've got to!"
         Peter is digging.  He has a dug a hole about 3-4 feet deep now.
      Ben tells him, "It's no use.  I didn't bury her that deep".  Peter
      asks, "Are you sure you buried her here?"  Ben replies, "Yes".  Peter
      asks, "Then why isn't she here?"  Ben replies, "Because she's
      vanished!  Vanished into thin air!  I should've known she wouldn't
      stay in her grave, not her!"  Peter says,"Ben, you're not making any
      sense".  Ben exclaims, "She's nearby! I can feel her watching me!"
      Peter says, "There's no one here", but Ben insists, "She's watching
      me!  Laughing at me!  I can tell!  I'm getting away from here!" and
      runs off.
         Peter is with Vicky in her cell.  Vicky asks, "You didn't find
      a trace of Angelique at all?"  Peter replies, "No, not even a trace
      of a body".  Vicky remarks, "I don't know what to think".  Peter
      remarks,  "It must have all been a figment of Ben's imagination".
      Vicky exclaims, "I can't believe that!", but Peter points out, "Women
      just don't get out of their graves and walk away!  We don't have a
      shred of evidence."  Vicky suggests that they tell the court about
      the toy soldier, but Peter recommends against it, saying, "Without
      any concrete evidence, it would look like we were trying to cast blame
      on an innocent person".  He tells her that would lose any sympathy she
      might have with the judges and make her look guilty.  Vicky asks, "What
      are we going to do?"  Peter replies, "There's only one thing I can do
      now.  Put you on the stand and have you tell the court the truth, that
      you come from another century".  Vicky exclaims, "They won't believe
      me!", but Peter says, "Maybe they will.  Maybe they'll see what I saw
      when you told me.  This is our last chance, our only hope".  Vicky
      moans, "Our only hope?!  Peter!!"  Peter hugs her and tries to
      comfort her.

      Director:    Lela Swift

         Peter returns to Vicky's cell.  Vicky asks, "Did you get the book?"
      Peter replies, "I have it with me".  Vicky remarks, "I wish there were 
      some other way".  Peter replies, "I wish I could tell you there were, 
      but nothing else has worked.  They're going to bring in a verdict 
      today.  If we don't do something, you'll be convicted and hanged!" 
         The courtroom is empty except for Trask.  Nathan comes into
      the room and asks, "Why did you send for me?"  Trask replies, "I'm 
      going to call you to the stand today".  Nathan protests, "I've already 
      testified", but Trask tells him, "You're going to testify again".
      Nathan exclaims, "That's out of the question!", but Trask continues,
      "Today, the judges are going to reach a verdict, but just before they 
      do, you are going to testify that you helped Miss Winters not because 
      of your loyalty to your friend Barnabas as you said the first time, 
      but because you were bewitched!"  Nathan exclaims, "No!", but Trask
      warns him, "Your career and prospects are not yet out of danger. 
      Mr. Collins' indulgence of you hangs by the thinnest of threads, and 
      I at the moment have the power to break that thread!"  Nathan exclaims,
      "I won't do it!", but Trask confidently says, "I think you will, Lt., 
      I think you will!"
         Vicky moans, "Convicted and hanged?!"  Peter tries to calm her
      down, "We only have a few minutes".  Vicky exclaims, "It has to stop! 
      It has to stop!"  Peter asks, "What do you mean?"  Vicky replies, 
      "Have you ever had nightmares?  When I was a child, I used to have 
      nightmares all the time.  I got curious.  When I know I was dreaming, 
      instead of waking myself up right away,  I'd wait until the last 
      moment just before the car crashed or the monster got me.  Only then 
      would I wake myself up.  Now!  Now!  Wake up! It's got to stop now!" 
      Vicky gets hysterical.  Peter slaps her and calms her down, then hugs 
      her.  He tells her, "They're coming. Will you be all right?"  Vicky
      replies, "I don't know, Peter, I don't know!"  A guard comes and 
      takes Vicky to court.
         Court reconvenes.  Trask calls Nathan to the stand again and asks,
      "In your last testimony,  you testified that you only helped Miss 
      Winters on the insistence of Barnabas Collins.  Is that the only reason
      you helped her?"  Nathan replies, "No".  Trask asks, "Could you 
      explain to the court what the other reason is?"   Nathan replies, "As
      I remember it now, I think I would've done the things I did even
      without Barnabas Collins insistence.  It was as if I had no choice
      in the matter.  My mind was swimming, it was as if I had to do
      what I did."  Trask asks, "Can you offer any explanation for this?"
      Nathan replies, "A spell.  Perhaps a spell.  Perhaps I was bewitched".
      Vicky shouts, "Why are you doing this?!  Why are you lying?"  The
      court orders Peter to control his witness.  Peter quiets Vicky down.
      Trask continues, "I have more more question.  You said PERHAPS you
      had been bewitched by the girl.  Is that the way you would put it?"
      Nathan replies, "No".  Trask asks, "How do you really feel?"  Nathan
      replies, "I was positive I was under a spell.  I was positive I was
      bewitched".
         Peter crossexamines Nathan, "Lt, would you look directly at
      the defendent".  Nathan reluctantly does so.  Peter asks, "Would you
      say she was attractive?"  Nathan replies, "Yes".  Peter asks, "Would
      you say she was very attractive?"  Nathan replies, "Yes".  Peter asks,
      "Remember the conversation you had with her when you first met her at
      Collinwood?  You said you had a 'weakness'.  Remember?"  Nathan
      replies, "No".  Peter reminds him, "It was just before she slapped
      you in the face when you tried to kiss her!"  Peter tells the court
      that perhaps it was this 'weakness' for attractive women that caused
      Nathan to help Vicky.
         Peter calls Vicky to the stand, "Your honors, I call Miss Victoria
      Winters to the stand!"  Vicky is sworn in and takes the stand.  Peter
      asks Vicky, "Miss Winters, will you tell the court the year in which
      you were born?"  Vicky replies, "I was born in the year nineteen
      hundred and forty six".  The judges look shocked.  One of them asks,
      "Would you please repeat the year of your birth to us?"  Vicky
      repeats, "Nineteen hundred and forty six".  The disbelieving judge
      asks, "Mr. Bradford!  Is this what you intended your witness to say?!"
      Peter replies, "Yes".  The judge says, "Proceed".   Peter asks, "Miss
      Winters, would you tell the court where you were broght up".  Vicky
      replies, "I was raised in a foundling home in New York".  Peter
      tells her, "Now tell them the year you left New York".  Vicky replies,
      "I left New York in the year 1966.  I went to work for the Collins
      family, right here, taking care of a boy named David".  Peter asks,
      "And how did you get here?"  Vicky replies, "I was in the drawing
      room of Collinwood when suddenly everything went dark.  When I
      regained consciousness, I found myself near the old house.  It
      looked strange".  Peter pipes in, "Because it was 150 years younger!"
      Vicky continues, "I saw people there who looked just like the people
      I know in my own time, but they weren't.  I thought surely this must
      be a dream!"  Peter, "Did you have anything in your possesion when
      you came?"  Vicky replies, "Yes".  Peter tells her, "Tell the court
      what it was".  Vicky replies, "It was a book, a history of the Collins
      family up to the year 1964".  Peter introduces the book as evidence, 
      telling the judge, "Note that the publication date is 1965".  The lead 
      judge takes the book and flips through it.  He tells the other judges, 
      "Look at these pictures at the back of the book!  Amazing detail!"
      Peter tells him, "Miss Winters tell me those are photographs, made 
      by a machine".  Peter resumes questioning Vicky. "Miss WInters, are 
      you a witch?"  Vicky replies, "No. I swear it. I am not a witch". 
      Peter tells the court Vicky knew the future because she had read 
      it.  Trask crossexamines, "Just before you were whisked back in time,
      were you alone?"  Vicky replies, "No".  Trask asks, "Who were you 
      with?"  Vicky replies, "Members of the Collins family and friends." 
      Trask asks, "What were you doing? Conversing?"  Vicky replies, "No, 
      we were having a..." She pauses then says, "...kind of meeting".
      Trask asks, "What kind of meeting?"  Vicky replies, "We were having 
      a seance".  Trask asks, "What is a seance?"  Vicky replies, "A seance
      is when a group of people try to contact the spirits".  Trask asks,
      "You mean call up the dead!"  Vicky exclaims, "No!  It wasn't like 
      that!  We weren't doing anything wrong!"  Trask asks, "Was this the 
      first time you were involved in a seance?"  Vicky replies, "No, but 
      it wasn't the way you're trying to make it look!"  Trask remarks,
      "Many things aren't the way they look.  You for example, don't look
      like a witch", then says, "I ask the court that these be added to
      the mountain of evidence against her!   Flying through time!
      Foretelling the future!  Calling the dead!  She is a witch, your
      honor!  She is a witch and she must die!" 
         Peter and Vicky are alone in the courtroom.  The clock on the
      wall reads 5:00.  Vicky asks, "How long has it been?"  Peter replies,
      "Over an hour".  Vicky asks, "What could they be doing in there?" 
      Peter tries to reassure her, "The fact that they're taking so long 
      could be a hopeful sign.  It may indicate doubt.  Before today's 
      testimony, they wouldn't have taken 2 minutes to convict you".  Vicky
      moans, "I don't want to die!"  Peter tells her, "I love you, Vicky",
      but Vicky says, "Please don't, Peter. If I get back to my own time, 
      I'll never see you again".  Peter tells Vicky, "I can't choose, 
      whether this is right or wrong.  I love you, and no matter what 
      happens, I'll love you always".
         Outside the courtroom, Nathan tells Trask, "I never thought I'd
      meet a preacher, even a self styled one like you, who also practiced
      blackmail.  I feel like telling the judge about you!" Trask replies, 
      "If you do, it'll be the end of everything for you!"
         The clock on the wall now reads 5:30.  Everyone is still waiting
      for the judges, Peter and Vicky in the courtroom, everyone else
      milling around outside the doorway.  The judges return.  Everyone
      returns.  Nathan mutters to Trask, "I hope they free her!  I hope they
      free her!"
         The lead judge announces, "The barrister will place the witness
      so that she faces us!"  Peter does so.  The lead judge announces the
      decision, "From the evidence laid down before us, and from the 
      testimony we have heard from the various witnesses, we have reached
      a verdict.  We find the defendent guilty of witchcraft as charged.
      She is to be taken to a place to be determined by the court and
      hanged by the neck until she is dead". Vicky screams, "NOOO!!!!!!"

      (Missed about 20 minutes due to oversleeping)
      (  When Barnabas awakens, Ben tells him that Vicky's trial is over,
      that she has been found guilty and sentenced to hang. Barnabas finds
      it unbelievable that Ben's testimony did not exonerate her, but
      Ben tells him about Angelique's appearance. Barnabas tells Ben he
      plans to avenge Vicky, that he plans to do something to Trask.
         Trask goes to Collinwood and asks Naomi for the keys to the old
      house so he can destroy all of Vicky's possessions and "cleans"
      it. Naomi reluctantly gives them to him and asks Ben to accompany
      him there.
         Trask and Ben go to the old house. Night is about to fall. Ben
      stays downstairs while Trask goes up to Vicky's room. Barnabas awakens
      and Ben meets him at the door to the cellar. He tells him that Trask
      is upstairs, and tells him what Trask s doing up there. Upstairs, Trask
      hears voices talking downstairs. He comes down with Vicky's things and
      questions Ben about the voices. Ben lies that he was talking to
      himself.  )
         Trask has brought Vicky's clothing back to his hotel room.
      He places the bundle on the bureau and is about to unwrap them
      to burn them when suddenly he hears a loud noise that sounds like
      the rattling of chains.  Hearing that it's coming from outside, he 
      calls out, "Who is it?  What are you doing out there?"  He opens the 
      door and looks outside, but becomes frightened and quickly closes it 
      when he hears a bloodcurdling scream.  A deep male voice starts 
      calling, "Trask!  Trask!  Trask!"  Trask asks, "Who is it? Who is in 
      this room?"  The voice replies, "Your victims, Trask!  Your innocent
      victims!  The tortureed, miserable creatures condemned by you!  You
      are a fraud, Trask!  A fraud!"  Trask again asks, "Who are you?" 
      The voice replies, "You will never live to see!"  Trask exclaims, "I 
      know who you are!  The witch!  You can't frighten me, you hear?  You 
      can't frighten me!"  He goes to the bureau to open the bundle when 
      suddenly he notices his reflection in the mirror replaced by a 
      grinning skull.  The voice laughs loudly and says, "Victoria Winters 
      will live!  She will live!"  Trask orders, "I command thee, evil 
      spirit, cast yourself back to the hell from whence you came!  Get 
      out of here, get out of here, I tell you!"  The mirror returns to 
      normal.  The skull disappears and it shows Trask's reflection again.  
      Trask gives a sigh of relief, thinking he has won, but suddenly blood
      starts to flow from the mirror.  The voice says, "She will live
      and you will die!"  Trask exclaims, "I know you for what you are, 
      witch!  You cannot frighten me with your tricks!"  Suddenly, a
      disembodied hand appears in the air.  Trask, terrified,  runs to the
      door and tries to leave, but finds that the door is locked.  He turns
      back.  The hand comes closer and closer, and reaches for his face. The
      hand can be seen to be wearing a black onyx ring.  Trask screams, "No!
      Get away from me!  Get away from me!  AHHHHHHH!"  But just as it is
      about to grab Trask's face, it disappears.  The voice says, "It will
      not happen tonight,  or tomorrow night, but soon, Trask, very soon,
      you are going to die!"

         Barnabas awakens and comes out of his coffin.  Ben comes down
      into the cellar.  Barnabas asks, "Good evening, Ben. Did you see 
      Trask today?"  Ben replies, "No".  Barnabas angrily says, "I told you 
      to!"  Ben explains, "Your father kept me busy all day".  Barnabas
      muses, "Did he sleep well, I wonder, or did he have disturbing 
      nightmares?"  Ben replies, "He probably had disturbing nightmares 
      if you had anything to do with it".  Barnabas tells him, "It's going 
      to get worse until the Reverend Trask stops sleeping altogether".
      Ben asks, "What do you mean, sir? What are you planning?"  Barnabas
      just replies, "You will see, Ben. You will see!"  Ben tells him, 
      "Scaring Trask is one thing.  I'm all for that, but if you go further 
      than that, you'll only make things worse for Miss Winters".  Barnabas
      says, "Nonsense!", but Ben warns him, "Whatever happens to Trask, 
      they'll blame on her".  Barnabas insists, "Nonsense! Not if I'm 
      clever!  What if he should just disappear one night.  What if I should 
      arrange it so that everyone thinks he's just gone back to Salem?  One 
      night, he will have a dream, a nightmare, and he will feel compelled 
      to come here.  You will get a large brass ring, large enough to tie a 
      man's hands to.  You will get bricks, and mortar, or course..."  Ben
      interrupts, "I can't go on helping you like this!", but Barnabas says,
      "Of course you will".  Ben begs, "I can't! I've seen about as much 
      killing as I can stand!  You have no feelings anymore!", but Barnabas
      replies, "I can hate!"  He orders Ben to do as instructed.  Ben 
      refuses, saying, "Sorry sir, you're going to have to make do without 
      me from now on".  Barnabas warns Ben, "I can't let you go!  You know
      too much!  Sorry, Ben, you have no choice now!" and threatens to kill
      him.  Ben sadly asks, "You'd kill even me, wouldn't you?"  Barnabas
      replies, "If I had to".  Ben tells him, "Well, go ahead, then!  I
      don't want to be here when someone finds you. I don't want to have
      to answer all the questions.  I don't want to see what happens to you".
      Barnabas admits, "Ben, I can't hurt you. You'll go on with me, Ben.
      There's nothing either of us can do to change things".  Ben leaves.
         Ben, appalled at the thought of more killing, goes to the
      Eagle.  There, he sits at a table busy getting drunk. He calls out
      to the bartender, "Rum! More rum!"  A woman sitting with him tells
      him, "You've had enough".  Ben asks, "Who are you?"  The woman remarks,
      "Fine thing to say to someone who's been keeping you company since you
      came through the door! I'm Maudie!"  Ben asks, "Who are you?  I've
      never seen you before.  You new around here?"  The woman tells him,
      "I just thought I'd give a look at what a big city woman looks like!"
      Ben warns her about the attacks, asking her if she knows what happened
      to Ruby Tate.  Maude replies, "Yes, but she talked to anyone.
      I don't."  Ben asks, "What kind of me you talk to?"  Maude caustically
      replies, "Gentlemen, and a gentlemen, you're obviously not!" and
      starts to leave.  Ben begs, "No!  Don't go out there!  Don't let
      what happened to Ruby Tate happen to you!"  Maude says, "I don't
      enjoy the company of men who prefer rum to me!" and leaves.
         Two men have just entered the tavern, Nathan and another man.
      They are standing just inside the doorway.  Nathan points Ben out
      to the other man and tells him, "There he is.  Right there.  The
      large one."  Maude gets to the doorway and engages Nathan in some
      flirtatious bantering.  Nathan introduces her to his friend Noah
      Gifford.  Maude disdainfully gestures at Ben and remarks, "If all
      the men around here are like him, I'm  going back to New Bedford!"
      and leaves.  Nathan tells Noah, "Find out everything you can about
      Barnabas.  Barnabas, can you remember that name?"  Noah replies,
      "Yes".  Nathan tells him, "All right.  See you later" and leaves.
         Noah goes to Ben's table, sits down, and says, "You're Ben Stokes.
      You work at Collinwood, don't you?"  Ben asks, "How did you know?"
      Noah lies, "Maudie told me.  I'm looking for a job.  I thought
      perhaps the people at Collinwood needed someone.  I used to do some
      gardening before I went to sea.  I thought perhaps I'd stay here for
      awhile."  Ben remarks, "I'd like to go to sea.  Maybe I'll ship out
      with you!  China, that's where I'd like to go.  I can never get enough
      tea to drink!  I like tea, strong, with lots of rum in it..."  Noah
      asks, "Are they a good family to work for?"  Ben asks, "Who?"  Noah
      replies, "The Collinses".  Ben exclaims, "NO!  You ship out!  You
      wouldn't like it!  The things he wants you to do.  With bricks!  And
      mortar!"  Noah asks, "Who?"  Ben replies, "Barnabas Collins!  They
      ain't like they used to be..."  Noah asks, "How, how have they
      changed?"  Ben suddenly starts to get suspicious, grabs Noah by
      the collar and demands, "Who are you? Why are you asking all these
      questions?  Are you going to answer my questions or what?"
         Meanwhile, Maude has run into Barnabas outside on the docks.
      She gushes, "Oh, you're not like all the provincial men around here!
      They frighten me terribly!"  Barnabas tries to excuse himself, "I'd 
      better be leaving", but Maude begs, "You're the first gentleman 
      I've met around here!  Don't go!  Please!"  Barnabas asks, "You 
      aren't from here, are you?"  Maude replies, "No.  A girl needs a 
      change every once in awhile, and I like to travel".  Barnabas seems 
      to not want to hurt her and makes a valiant attempt to leave, but 
      Maude, thinking she's finally found the rich gentleman she's been 
      looking for, keeps delaying him and keeping him there.  Barnabas 
      warns her, "You shouldn't be out here.  It's not safe", but Maude 
      replies, "I'll take my chances with you."  Barnbas asks, "You will?" 
      Maude replies, "I said I would, didn't I?"  Barnabas remarks, "Perhaps 
      you don't know the chance you're taking".  Weakening, he attacks her. 
      She screams, "AHHHHHHHHHHHH!"  Nathan, who's nearby, hears her and 
      shouts, "Maude?!  Maude!" and comes running.  By the time he gets 
      there, Barnabas, who's heard him, has fled.  Maude is lying on the 
      ground shaken but otherwise unharmed.  Nathan asks, "Who was it, 
      Maude?"  Maude replies, "It was the strangler!  I know it was!  That's
      his cane!"  She points to a cane lying on the ground.  Nathan picks
      it up, looks at it, and in a shocked tone, says, "This couldn't be the
      strangler's!  I know whose cane this is!"
         Nathan takes Maude into the Eagle.  Nathan tells Maude, "Maude, 
      listen to me, you should go to the police", but Maude replies, "I 
      ain't going to go anywhere near the police.  I'm going to go wherever
      the next stage takes me!"  Nathan tells her, "Just describe the man to 
      me, then.  I'll take care of it, and you won't need to get involved. 
      You sure the man was carrying this?"  Maude replies, "Yes. Outside, 
      you said you knew whose it was".  Nathan replies, "I was wrong.  I 
      must be.  I know someone who owns a cane just like this one, but he's 
      in England".  Maude suggests, "Maybe it was stolen".  Nathan asks, 
      "Was the man tall?"  Maude replies, "Yes".  Nathan asks, "Was he dark
      or light?"  Maude replies, "Dark.  Those eyes.  Serious eyes that 
      looked right through you".  Nathan tells her, "Tell me what his voice 
      was like".  Maude replies, "Deep and very quiet.  Very refined.  He 
      sounded somewhat sad".  Nathan asks, "Was he handsome?"  Maude replies,
      "At first, yes.  But then his face, it all changed and became like
      a wild animal's.  Then all I could see was that hand choking me,
      all I could see was that ring on his finger..."  Nathan asks, "What 
      kind of ring?"  Maude replies, "It was gold and had a big black stone
      in it".  Nathan asks, "What finger was it on?"  Maude replies, "The
      first one.  I was lucky you got there when you did.  He would've
      killed me!"  Nathan asks her, "Promise me you won't tell anyone.
      That's my price for saving you."  Maude asks, "What are you going to
      do?"  Nathan replies, "I don't know yet.  I've got to find out if I'm
      right in my thinking.  If I am, you won't be the only one got lucky
      tonight!"
