           Quentin tells Charity, "There's no need to call the police
        anymore.  The woman's dead".  Charity tells Quentin, "I'm
        going to tell my father your secret!".  Quentin replies, "You'd
        better not", and shows her the confession to Minerva's murder.
        Charity says, "That's a fake.  My father was tricked into signing
        it!".  Quentin replies, "You may believe that, but the police 
           Aristede tells Magda, "When Barnabas awakens tonight, you 
        are not to tell him what happened to you during the day, and
        try to act normally".  Magda replies, "I'll try, but it won't
        be easy to fool Barnabas".  Aristede remarks, "You'd better
        use your gypsy wits to do so as best as you can".  Magda 
        replies, "You'd better be careful too. I may have my gypsy 
        wits to protect me, but you have NOTHING!" Aristede replies,
        "But I do", and showing her the pendant he's wearing, explains,
        "It is very powerful and has protected me from many things".
        He then tells her, "You'd better get the hand before it's
        too late".  Magda asks, "Too late for what?", but Aristede
        refuses to say.  Magda tells him, "Tim Shaw has the hand".
        Aristede replies, "Then you'd better find Tim Shaw".  
           Mrs. Fillmore comes to Collinwood and tells Quentin that
        his daughter is in a coma, having apparently been stricken
        with the same illness that struck his son.
           Charity, now knowing what to do, is in the drawing room
        drinking.  There's a knock at the front door.  She answers
        it.  Magda comes in.  Noticing the obvious, Magda asks,
        "Have you been drinking?"  Charity lies, "No".  Madga asks,
        "Then why does your breath smell like brandy?"  Charity
        lies, "I've been eating some brandy-filled chocolates".
        Magda, not convinced, remarks, "It looks like man troubles.
        It must be Tim Shaw's going away that's troubling you.
        I can help you find out where he is using my powers. But
        I'll need your help to do so.  Do you know anyone who might 
        know where he'd go?"  Charity replies, "He had a good friend
        named Steven Simmons while at school.  I have his address".
        Magda tells her, "Go get it".  Puzzled, Charity asks, "Why
        do you need all this just to use your Tarot Cards?"  Magda
        replies, "Don't ask so many questions about things you 
        don't understand.  Just go get it".  Charity leaves to do so.
           Quentin comes down and sees Magda in the drawing room.
        Thinking she has come because of his daughter's illness,
        he asks her, "How did you know about my daughter?"  Magda
        replies, "I don't know.  What's wrong with your daughter?"
        Quentin tells her.  Magda, desperate, tells Quentin about
        Aristede's protective pendant and says, "Maybe it might
        be able to protect your daughter from Julianka's curse".
        Quentin asks, "Where's Aristede?"  Magda tells him.
           Quentin goes to the place Magda told him about and finds
        Aristede sleeping there.  Quentin tries to sneak up on him
        quietly, but Aristede wakes up.  Quentin demands the pendant.
        Aristede refuses, saying, "I need it to protect me. It has
        protected me from many things".  Quentin remarks, "It may have
        protected you from spirits - let's see how it does against
        flesh and blood!" and attacks him.  Aristede pulls "the
        dancing lady" to protect himself.  They fight.  Quentin
        manages to knock Aristede out and takes the pendant from
           Quentin arrives at Mrs. Fillmore's.  Mrs. Fillmore and
        Magda are there.  Mrs. Fillmore tells Quentin, "The doctor
        has come and gone.  He said there was nothing he could do".
        Quentin thanks her and asks her to leave the room.  She does
        so.  Quentin puts the pendant on his daughter, but it has no
        effect.  Seeing no other option, Quentin tells Magda to summon
        the spirit of Julianka and beg her to remove the curse.  Magda
        is dubious that Julianka would do this, but Quentin asks her to
        try anyway.  Magda conducts a ceremony to summon Julianka's 
        spirit.  Suddenly, there is a bright flash of lightning outside,
        and the cradle starts to rock by itself.  Quentin exclaims, "It
        must be Julianka!  We can only hope she's come out of pity for
        the child!"  A ghost materizlizes beside the cradle and says,
        "No, not out of pity..."

          The ghost continues, "... but out of love".  For the ghost
        is not that of Julianka, but Jenny.  She picks the child up
        and carries it for awhile, then announces, "When she awakens,
        she will be well" and puts the child back in the cradle.  
        Quentin apologizes to Jenny for how badly their life together
        turned out and says, "If I had it all to do over again, things
        would be different".  Jenny replies, "Theres's one way you 
        can prove your love for me.  Do the right thing for the child".
        Quentin asks, "And what is the right thing?", but Jenny merely
        replies, "You know what it is..." and vanishes.  Quentin tells
        Magda, "I think I know what the right thing is".
           At Collinwood, Trask goes to the tower room and tries to
        get Edward to sign a document making him, Trask, legal guardian
        of Jamison.  But Edward reads the document - in spite of Trask 
        trying to tell him, "You don't need to read it..." - and says, 
        "This document is incorrect! I have no son." and refuses to sign 
        it, saying, "I cannot sign a document containing an error".
           Quentin and Magda return to Collinwood.  Quentin asks Trask,
        "May I prepare a room to use as a nursery? I plan to bring my
        daughter here to live".  Trask - as acting master of Collinwood -
        refuses.  Quentin snarls, "I know what you're trying to do,
        and I'm not going to let you do it!"  
           Quentin goes to the tower room and tells Edward, "I've come
        to let you out so we can fight Trask together.  You've got to
        snap out of it! If you don't, Trask will take over Collinwood,
        and this will affect everyone, you, me, your son, Judith, 
        everyone!"  Edward, looking puzzled, remarks, "That's the
        second time someone's made the mistake of thinking I have
        a son, but I have no son".  He tells Quentin about the first
        time.  Quentin, seeing that his efforts are doing no good,
        tells Edward, "I'm sorry, but I can't let you out" and
           Later, Trask goes to the tower room and finds that Edward
        is very depressed.  He asks why.  Edward replies, "Quentin was
        very cruel to me.  He came here, told me he was going to let
        me out, said a lot of nonsense, then said he'd changed his mind
        and wasn't going to let me out".  Trask tells him, "Quentin
        will never let you out.  The only way you'll be able to get out
        and perform your duties as a servant is to kill Quentin".
           Quentin falls asleep in the drawing room and has a dream.
        In the dream, Jenny appears to him.  Quentin tells her, "I know
        what the right thing to do for the child is, it's to bring her
        to live at Collinwood", but Jenny replies, "No, that's not it.
        The right thing for you to do is put her in a safe place and
        not see her anymore" then disappears.  Edward then appears.
        He tells Quentin, "It's almost time for dinner. I've come to
        help you get dressed".  He puts a coat on Quentin, then puts
        a tie around Quentin's neck and starts to tie it.  Quentin
        complains, "You're tying it too tight! You're strangling me!",
        but Edward just keeps pulling it tighter and tighter...
           Quentin awakens and finds Edward is really there in the room
        standing over him.  Edward grabs Quentin's throat and starts
        strangling him...

           Nora comes into the drawing room, sees Edward strangling
        Quentin and screams.  Edward lets go of Quentin. Nora calls
        Edward, "Father!".  Edward is puzzled and says, "Father? I
        have no children!"  Trask comes into the room and asks, "What's
        going on?"  Nora replies, "They were fighting!"  Quentin looks
        at Trask suspiciously, perhaps suspecting that Edward didn't
        "escape" from the tower room without some help, and tells Trask,
        "Take Edward back to the tower room".  Trask takes Edward away.
           Nora asks Quentin, "What's wrong with my father?"  Quentin
        replies, "He's sick", but promises, "I'll take care of him. He
        won't be like that much longer".  But he thinks to himself, "To
        cure him, I'll have to find the hand, and to find the hand, I'll
        have to find Tim Shaw".
           Meanwhile, Tim Shaw has returned to Collinsport and is staying
        at the Collinsport Inn.  He takes the box containing the hand out
        of a trunk and puts the box into a bigger box, which he then starts
        to wrap, as if wrapping a present.  He is interrupted by the phone
        ringing and answers it.  It is a call from the front desk.  Tim
        tells the clerk, "Tell her to wait five minutes then come up".
        He finishes wrapping the box.  There's a knock at the door. Tim
        opens it and a woman comes in.  She asks, "Why did you want me
        to wait five minutes before coming up?"  He refuses to tell her,
        saying, "It's a secret", then asks, "Do you understand what you
        are to do?"  She replies, "Yes.  What are you planning to do to
        this man anyway?"  He refuses to tell her, fingering her necklace
        and saying, "You're being rewarded well enough not to ask questions" 
        He tells her, "I have one more thing for you to do".  He gives her
        the wrapped box and tells her, "Hide this in your room"
           The woman goes to Collinwood and introduces herself to Gregory
        Trask, "My name is Amanda Harris.  I'm desperate.  I've heard good
        things about you and have come to you for help."  She tells him
        that an ex-boyfriend is stalking and harrassing her and has
        managed to track her down wherever she goes.  Trask agrees to
        help and tells her, "The first thing we must do is pray".
        Quentin comes into the drawing room and finds them both on
        their knees praying.
           As the woman is leaving, Trask calls out after her, "Where
        are you staying?" The woman replies, "The Collinsport Inn"
        and leaves.  Quentin asks, "What was that all about?", but
        Trask refuses to tell him.
           Amanda returns to Tim's room at the Collinsport Inn and
        tells him, "Everything went just as planned.  Trask believed
        every word of my story".  They kiss.  Bored, Amanda asks Tim
        to take her out for a walk, but Tim refuses, saying, "We can't
        risk being seen together".  Amanda gets angry and complains,
        "Coming to this whistle stop is bad enough, now you want me to
        stay in my room! I'm going back to New York!"  Tim, exasperated,
        finally says, "All right, I'll take you for a walk on the docks".
           Quentin, curious as to what Trask is doing, goes to the
        Collinsport Inn to check on Amanda Harris.  In the lobby, he
        sees Tim and Amanda leaving (but they do not see him).  Quentin
        goes up to Tim's room and starts searching for the hand.
           Later, Tim and Amanda return to the Inn.  As they are going
        up the stairs to the room, Amanda sarcastically remarks, "I can
        hardly get up these stairs after the excitement of the Collinsport
           Quentin, still searching Tim's room, hears Tim and Amanda
           Tim and Amanda go into Tim's room.  Quentin is no longer
        there.  They find the room a mess.  Tim goes to the desk and
        finds a large roll of money still there.  Obviously, whoever
        ransacked the room was not after money.  He tells Amanda, "Quickly!
        Go to your room and get that box I gave you!"  She leaves and
        returns with it.  Tim remarks, "It's good whoever it was didn't
        have time to search your room too.  We'll have to find a better
        hiding place for it".  Amanda asks, "What is it?"  Tim just
        replies, "Our security for the future".  He then tells her, "Give
        me your necklace.  I need it.  I'll give you a better one".  She
        reluctantly gives it to him.  
           Tim goes to Collinwood and sneaks into Nora's room. Nora says,
        "I'm glad to see you.  I haven't seen you for a long time".  Tim
        gives her the necklace and tells her, "It's a present, but you must
        not tell anyone about it, and don't tell anyone I was here either.
        Charity wouldn't let me up to see you because it was past your
        bedtime, but I snuck up anyway.  Don't tell anyone!"  She agrees
        not to tell anyone.  Tim tells her, "I have a favor I'd like to
        ask you to do".  He gives her the wrapped box containing the hand
        and tells her, "I'd like you to hide this here for me and not
        tell anyone about it".  Nora asks, "Why?"  Tim replies, "I can't
        tell you.  It's a secret".  She agrees, then asks, "Is it a 
        present for Jamison?"  Tim replies, "No".  Nora remarks, "Oh.
        I thought it was because he's been sick".
           After Tim leaves, Nora puts the box in her armoire and 
        gets back into bed.  But almost immediately, curiousity gets
        the better of her, and she gets back out of bed, gets the
        box out of the armoire, and starts to open it...

           Nora unwraps the box, and finds the smaller box inside.
        She tries to open the smaller box but is unable to, 
        apparently not knowing how to.  She puts the box back into
        the larger box and wraps it back up.
           Aristede and Jamison/Petofi meet in the woods.  Jamison/Petofi,
        looking very despondent, says, "I have only a few hours left".
        Aristede tells him, "I have good news.  Tim Shaw is back in
        town.  I saw him at the Collinsport Inn.  He brought a young
        woman with him.  I looked in the register and found her name
        is Amanda Harris".  Jamison/Petofi remarks, "Tim Shaw wouldn't
        be so stupid as to keep the hand at the hotel".  Aristede
        replies, "I'll go 'persuade' Tim to tell me where it is", but
        Jamison/Petofi tells him, "Your techinques of persuasion would
        work better on the woman.  I'll keep Tim occupied while you
        persuade her..."
           Jamison/Petofi goes to the dining room at the Inn and finds
        Tim Shaw there.  Jamison/Petofi lies, "I'm in town with my
        father".  Tim remarks, "I'm surprised to see you. I thought you 
        were sick".  Jamsion/Petofi replies, "I was, but I'm better now.  
        How did you know I was sick?"  Tim replies, "Nora mentioned it".  
        He tells Jamison/Petofi, "I'm waiting for a woman, but you're 
        welcome to stay and talk until she comes".  
           Meanwhile, upstairs in Amanda's room, Aristede attacks 
        Amanda and demands to know where the hand is.  She tells him,
        "I don't know what you're talking about!"  He asks, "Have you
        seen a small, ornate box?"  Amanda replies, "No, but Tim did
        have a large, wrapped box".  Aristede asks, "Where is it?"
           Aristede comes down into the dining room, sees Tim, and
        greets him, "Hello! We haven't seen each other in quite a 
        while! Maybe we could get together for a drink sometimes",
        then leaves.  Jamison excuse himself, saying, "I have to leave
        too" and does so.  Tim goes upstairs to see what's taking 
        Amanda so long.  He finds her lying face down on the floor.
        (Note: When did Aristede and Tim ever meet before?)
           Aristede and Jamison/Petofi meet in the woods again.
        Aristede tells Jamison/Petofi, "I didn't learn much from
        the woman, only that Tim had a large, wrapped box - which
        I suspect contains the hand - and took it to someone for
        safekeeping, but she didn't know who the person might be.
        She also told me Tim took a necklace from her.  He said
        he needed it, and promised to replace it with a better one".
        Jamison/Petofi remarks, "That must mean the person he took it
        to must be a woman.  He must have taken the necklace to use
        as a gift to induce the woman to hide the box for him.  And
        I think I know who the woman is.  Tim made a mistake earlier.
        He mentioned that he had spoken to Nora..."
           Jamison/Petofi goes to Collinwood and goes to Nora.  He fools
        her into admitting that Tim had been in her room by lying that
        he already knows because he saw Tim coming out of her room.
        She tells him, "Tim gave me a gift!", and shows him the necklace.
        Jamison/Petofi says, "I know he gave you something else too,
        a box".  Nora denies it, but Jamison/Petofi grabs her and puts
        her arm in a hammerlock and forces her to tell him where the
        box is.  He takes the box out of the armoire, opens the box,
        and finds the hand...

           Jamison/Petofi, carrying the hand, which is in the large
        box, re-wrapped to look like a present, exits Collinwood.
        But he suddenly starts to become weak, and collapses in the
           At the old mill building, Aristede speaks to the prone
        body of Count Petofi, who is apparently in suspended animation,
        telling him, "Jamison has gone to Collinwood to get the hand.
        He should be here with it any moment now".
           Quentin finds Jamison lying in the woods unconsciouse, revives 
        him, and asks, "What happened? What's wrong?"  Jamison lies,
        "Nothing", and tries to leave, but Quentin stops him and asks,
        "What's in the box?"  Jamison lies, "It's a gift for Nora".
        But Quentin, not believing him, takes the box, opens it, and
        finds the hand.
           Aristede stands over the body of Petofi and wonders, "What's
        taking Jamison so long?"  
           Quentin takes Jamison and the hand to the caretaker's cottage
        to Barnabas. Jamison is getting weaker and weaker.  Still possessed 
        by Petofi, delirious and not knowing where he is, Jamison moans, 
        "Aristede...Where's the hand? I'm dying. I need the hand..."  
        Fearing that Jamison might die if Petofi does, Barnabas asks, 
        "Where are you?" Jamison/Petofi replies, "The old mill building..."
           Barnabas goes to the old mill building and tells Aristede,
        "I have the hand now. I got it from Jamison. I also know that
        Petofi is dying and needs the hand to save himself".  Aristede
        asks, "How would you know this?"  Barnabas replies, "Jamison 
        told me.  I want to talk to Petofi.  If he'll promise to use
        the hand to cure Quentin afterwards, I'll bring it to him".
        Aristede replies, "You can't speak to Petofi.  He's been
        unconscious since possessing Jamison. But I'll give you my
        word that we'll  use the hand to cure Quentin if you return it
        to us".
           Barnabas goes to the cottage to get the hand, telling Quentin
        what happened at the mill building.  Quentin tells Barnabas, "I
        don't trust Aristede.  What if they just takes the hand and leave
        without curing me?", but Barnabas says, "We have no choice but to
        trust them.  Jamison will die if Petofi does".
           Barnabas takes the hand to Aristede.  Aristede tells Barnabas,
        "You cannot watch.  You might affect the process", takes the
        hand, and goes into the room where Petofi is.  He says a few
        incantations over the hand, then places it on Petofi's chest.
        He then comes out of the room, closing the door behind him, and
        tells Barnabas, "All we can do is wait now".
           At the cottage, Jamison stirs and says, "The hand! Why is it
        still on my chest? Why isn't it working?"
           At the mill building, Barnabas is getting impatient and asks
        Aristede, "What's going on in there? It's been over an hour".
        Aristede replies, "I was just instructed what to do.  I wasn't
        told how long it would take".  Barnabas paces around nervously
        and frets, "What if it didn't work? What if Petofi has died and
        Jamison with him?"  
           Later, Barnabas loses patience and telsl Aristede, "I'm
        going into that room to see what's happening whether you like
        it or not!"  Aristede tries to stop him.  They struggle for
        awhile, but suddenly stop when they hear Petofi laughing
        heartily from the other room.  The door opens, and Petofi
        steps out, saying, "After all these years, it's mine again!".
        He holds up his right arm.  Attached to it is the hand...

           Barnabas tells Petofi, "Aristede made a deal with me on
        your behalf for the hand".  Count Petofi replies, "As a man
        of honor, I will honor the deal".  But when Barnabas tells
        Petofi the details of the details, that he is to cure Quentin
        of the werewolf affliction and remove the curse from the
        Collins family, Petofi goes back on his word and refuses to
        do this.
           Quentin, having taken Jamison to the drawing room of Collinwood,
        sees that Jamison has lapsed into a coma and decides he must go
        to Barnabas.  He goes to the cellar of the mill building and tells
        Barnabas.  Barnabas tells Petofi, "You must save Jamison. You owe
        it to him!"  Petofi asks to speak to Barnabas alone.  Quentin
        leaves.  Barnabas asks Petofi, "What do you want to talk about?"
        Petofi is at first vague, as if nervous, then asks Barnabas, "I'd
        like to talk about the future.  Have you ever wondered what the
        year 1969 will be like?"  Barnabas at first feigns ignorance and
        tells Petofi, "I have no idea what you're talking about", so
        Petofi tells him, "I know you're from the year 1969".  Barnabas
        denies it, so Petofi shows him the Family History as proof. 
        Confronted with this, Barnabas admits that he is indeed from
        the year 1969.  Petofi tells Barnabas, "I would like to travel
        to the year 1969".  Barnabas asks, "Why?"  Petofi replies, "To
        escape from the gypsies.  They will soon be after me to get the
        hand back".  Barnabas replies, "I'm sorry, but I'm not sure if
        I even can back to the future, much less take you back with
        me".  Petofi, not believing him, thinks of a way to get Barnabas to
        divulge the secret and tells him, "Look into the cabinet.  I'll 
        show you a vision of your own death".  Barnabas looks into the
        cabinet and sees a vision of David apparently dying.  Barnabas,
        shocked, exclaims, "David! Is he dead?".  Petofi is puzzled
        and says, "It was supposed to be a vision of YOUR death...",
        and again asks Barnabas to tell him the secret of time travel.
        Barnabas again lies that he doesn't know it.  Petofi tells him,
        "I'll give you time to think about it".  However, he puts a 
        spell on Barnabas and tells him to look at his hand.  Barnabas
        does so, and finds that a mark has appeared there.  Petofi
        tells him that he now no longer has the vampire power to
        vanish and appear at will, and tells him to try. Barnabas
        tries to dematerialize, finds that he cannot. Petofi tells
        him he can now go and Barnabas leaves.  It is almost dawn.  
        Aristede asks Petofi, "What do you plan to do?" Petofi replies, 
        "Lord Kitchener once said, 'When plan A fails, one should start 
        plan B immediately'".
           Petofi and Aristede show up at the old house.  Magda at first
        tells them she won't help them, but becomes terrified when
        Petofi shows her the reattached hand.  She takes them to Barnabas'
        new hiding place in the West Wing of Collinwood.  They open the
        coffin.  Barnabas is lying in there.  Petofi puts a cross inside
        with him and closes up the coffin.

           After having taken Barnabas' coffin back to the mill building
        with them, Aristede asks Petofi, "What do you plan to do now?"
        Petofi replies, using a military analogy, "I plan to catch
        Barnabas in a pincher movement and increase the pressure on 
        him until he cracks and divulges the secret. I plan to attack
        those he loves in 1969 too".  He starts to cast a spell.
           At Collinwood, Nora goes into the drawing room.  Jamison
        awakens and asks her to call Quentin.  She starts to walk out
        of the room, but Jamsion tells her, "No, Amy, use the phone!"
        Nora, puzzled, replies, "My name isn't Amy. It's Nora. And
        I don't have to telephone Quentin; he's right in the house". 
        But Jamison insists that her name is Amy, and even though
        Quentin is in the house, he can only be reached by phone.
        Frightened, Nora rushes out of the room.  Jamison loses
        consciousness.  Nora returns with Quentin and tells him about
        all the strange things Jamison had said to her and tells him
        that Jamison had insisted that his own name was David.
        Quentin mutters, "David Collins..." as if he had heard the 
        name before. He tells Nora to go to her room, then leaves.
           Jamison/David regains consciousness briefly and speaks strangely
        to Quentin.  He tells Quentin, "This is exactly what I thought it
        would be like".  Quentin asks, "Exactly what what would be like?"
        Jamison/David replies, "Exactly as you promised - it's exactly what
        you said dying and being with you forever would be like".  He then
        lapses into unconsciousness again.
           Tim Shaw visits Nora in her room and asks her for the package
        he had left with her.  Nora stupidly says, "You mean the one
        with the pretty box inside?"  Tim grabs her and demands, "How
        did you know about the pretty box inside?"  Nora admits that
        she opened the big box.  Tim asks, "Did you open the pretty little
        box?"  Nora replies, "No, I didn't know how?"  Tim, relieved,
        asks Nora to give him the box.  Nora replies, "I can't.  Jamison
        took it".  Tim asks, "Where's Jamison?".  Nora tells him, "He's
        sick.  He's downstairs with Quentin".
           Furious, Tim goes down to the drawing room and asks Quentin
        if he could speak to Jamison.  Quentin replies, "No. Anyway,
        if it's the hand you're after, neither Jamison nor I have it
        anymore.  If you want to find it, go talk to Aristede".
           Tim goe to the mill building and pulls a gun on Aristede
        and demands that he give him the hand.  Aristede replies, "I
        can't give it to you".  Tim threatens to shoot Aristede if
        he doesn't.  Petofi comes into the room and tells Tim,
        "Shooting Aristede will do no good.  Aristede is telling you
        the truth when he says he can't give you the hand".  He holds
        up his right arm to show Tim the reattached hand.  Realizing
        that he really can't get the hand back now, Tim tells Petofi,
        "I wanted to use the hand to get revenge on two men - Gregory
        Trask and Evan Handley. I'll pay you well to help me".  Petofi
        replies, "I compliment you on your choice of enemies", but
        refuses to help.
           Quentin takes Jamison/David to Petofi and tells him what
        happened and asks him to help Jamison/David, saying, "You owe
        it to him.  You used him to do your dirty work for him".
        Jamison/David deliriously mutters, "Quentin...Quentin..."
        Petofi points out something interesting, "Jamison is possessed
        by David Collins, yet he calls your name and seems to know you.
        How is it possible for someone from another time to know you?"

           Quentin is puzzled by this too.  Petofi concludes wrongly
        that there must be another man named Quentin in 1969.  He
        tells Quentin, "There's something Barnabas has that I want.
        If you can convince Barnabas to give it to me, I will cure
        the boy".  Quentin replies, "I don't know where Barnabas is"
        Petofi replies, "He's in his coffin".  Quentin asks, "Why would
        he be in his coffin now? It's after dusk".  Petofi takes Quentin
        to the chained coffin, unchains the coffin, and opens it.  Inside
        is Barnabas, immobilized by the cross.  Petofi leaves to let
        Quentin and Barnabas speak in private, warning Quentin not to
        try to touch Barnabas or remove the cross.  Barnabas is
        immoblized but can talk.  Quentin tells Barnabas what's happened,
        and tells him, "Petofi wants something from you as the price for
        curing Jamison".  Barnabas replies, "I know what he wants. He wants
        to know how to travel to the year 1969.  But I can't tell him,
        I don't know how to return myself".  Quentin tells Barnabas about
        the puzzling fact, "Alhough Jamison is posssessed by David Collins
        from the year 1969, he seems to know me.  How is it possible for 
        someone from the year 1969 to know me?"  Barnabas, not wanting
        to tell Quentin that David recognizes him because he, Quentin,
        died this very year 1897 so his ghost in 1969 looks just as he
        does now, deflects the question by saying, "Quicky! Remove the
        cross before Petofi comes back!"  Quentin reaches out to try to
        do this, but finds that his hand is blocked, as if by an
        invisible force field.  Petofi comes back into the room, laughs
        and says, "Do you think I would have left you alone if it were
        that easy?"  He closes the coffin asks Quentin, "What did Barnabas
        say?"  Quentin replies, "Barnabas said he doesn't know how to
        return to the year 1969".  Petofi replies, "I don't believe that.
        I will keep Barnabas in his coffin until he's in the right mood".
        He tells Quentin, "Since Barnabas didn't tell me what I wanted
        to know, I will not cure the boy".
           Quentin takes the boy back to Collinwood.  Beth watches over
        him in his room.  The boy regains consciousness, sees Beth, and
        calls her name.  Beth at first thinks that that his recognizing
        her must mean Jamison is back to normal and is no longer
        possessed by "David", but then he asks her a strange question:
        "Beth, what is it like to die?"  Beth replies, "I wouldn't
        know.  I've never died before". "David" replies, "But you have.
        Quentin told me you took your own life".
           Petofi gloats over the coffin of Barnabas, saying, "Sooner
        or later, you're going to have to tell me the secret.  There's
        no other way".  Inside the coffin, Barnabas thinks to himself,
        "You're wrong, Petofi.  There is another way..."
           Beth goes to Quentin and tells him what "David" had said
        and asks, "What did he mean?"  Quentin replies, "Don't worry
        about it.  He's just saying strange things because he's ill" 
        (but the worried expression on his face seems to indicate 
           From inside the coffin, Barnabas starts to summon Beth
           At Collinwood, Beth suddenly excuses herself and leaves.
        Quentin realizes that Beth's abrupt departure must mean that
        Barnabas had summoned her.
           Beth goes to the coffin in the mill building and starts to
        undo the chains, but Petofi walks into the room and catches
        her in the act.  Beth pulls out a gun and points it at him.
        Petofi tells Beth, "It would be most unwise for you to release
        Barnabas. I'll show you what he'll do to you eventually if you
        do".  He takes her out into the other room and to the cabinet.
           Inside the coffin, Barnabas tries desperately to telepathically
        tell Beth, "Don't believe what he shows you! It will be a lie!"
          Outside in the other room, Petofi opens the cabinet and tells 
        Beth to look into it.  Beth does so and sees a scene of Barnabas
        biting and killing her, turning her into a vampire.  She
        screams.  Petofi tells her, "There's only one way for you to
        avoid that fate.  You must turn your back and leave Barnabas
        forever".  Beth does so and leaves.  Petofi goes to the coffin
        and gloats, "She came because you are powerful, but she left
        because I am more powerful!"

          At what will eventually be the Evan's cottage, Charles 
        Delaware Tate is putting some finishing touches on he
        portrait of Quentin.  Suddenly, he seems to sense something
        evil about it and grabs a palette knife and raises it to
        destroy it, but Petofi comes in and stops him, telling him,
        "If you destroy the portrait, I will take away all your
        artistic talent".
           Beth returns to Collinwood.  In the foyer, she looks 
        fearfully at the portrait of Barnabas, then goes into the
        drawing room, where she finds Quentin.  Quentin tells her,
        "I know Barnabas summoned you to help him.  What happened?"
        Beth replies, "I will have nothing more to do with Barnabas!"
        She breaks down in tears and begs Quentin, "Take me away from
        Collinwood, away from all this!"  Quentin replies, "Sure,
        I'll take you away from all this.  We can go to London,
        Paris, Rome...  And wherever we go, you can look up at night
        and see the moon.  You can see the moon from all over the
        world, you know.  My only hope for a cure is to stay here".
        Beth runs out into the foyer, crying.  Quentin goes and
        walks out the front door.
           Charity sees all this from the landing and comes down
        and takes Beth into the drawing room, saying she wants to
        talk to her.  She tells Beth, "You should stay away from
        Quentin. He's not good for you".  Beth asks, "What do you
        mean?"  Charity replies, "I can't tell you, but there are
        reasons".  Beth says, "You're just jealous! I've seen you
        looking at Quentin like a schoolgirl with a crush!"  Charity
        admits that she was smitten with Quentin before, but not
        anymore. Beth does not believe her.
           At the Evan's cottage, Petofi tells Charles Delaware Tate
        that the painting looks finished and asks to take it, but
        Tate replies, "There are still a few finishing touches that
        need to be done".  There's a knock at the door.  Petofi asks
        Tate, "Are you expecting anyone?"  Tate replies, "No".  Petofi
        tells him, "Answer it", and hides in the next room.
           Tate answers the door.  It is Charity.  She tells him, "Because
        of something I've learned, I know it wasn't my imagination when
        I saw the portrait turn into a wolf".  Tate asks, "What have you
        learned?", but Charity refuses to tell him, saying only, "When
        the moon is full, you should stay indoors and lock the doors".
        Charity then leaves.  Petofi, who's been eavesdropping, comes
        out of his hiding place.  Tate, remarks, "Quentin is a werewolf,
        isn't he?"  Petofi admits that this is true, then says, "Charity
        Trask talks too much. As the Gods had to take care of Echo because
        she talked too much, I'll have to take care of Charity Trask"
        and leaves.  
           Petofi arrives at Collinwood.  Quentin asks, "What do you
        want?"  Petofi replies, "I've come to save you".  Quentin asks,
        "Why?"  Petofi replies, "It's because I know you're somehow
        an important part of the future because David recognized you".
        Charity comes into the drawing room and sees Petofi there.  
        She orders him to leave, but then suddenly loses her voice.

           Petofi touches Charity with the hand, and she goes into
        a trance-like state.  He tells Quentin, "Leave me alone with
        her so I can make her forget".  Quentin leaves the drawing
        room.  Petofi takes Charity to the window and tells her to
        look out, saying, "I will show you the errors of your ways.
        I will show you what your loquaciousness will lead to - your
        death!".  A vision starts to form...
           In the vision, Magda is at the old house, reading some Tarot
        Cards.  There's a knock at the door.  Magda answers it.  It is
        Charity.  Charity tells Magda, "Something has happened, and I
        need you to read my future for me", but Magda replies, "I cannot
        right now.  I'm expecting someone.  Besides, it's a bad night
        to read the cards.  Everything I have read in them tonight has
        been tragic.  I see a violent death happening soon".  Charity
        asks, "Whose?"  There's a knock at the door.  Magda remarks,
        "That's the man I called to warn".  She opens the door. Aristede
        comes in and asks, "Why did you summon me here?"  Magda starts
        to say, "You've got to warn Petofi...", but the lights suddenly
        go out, and supernatural effects start to happen.  Frightened,
        Aristede runs outside - where he is attacked and strangled by 
        a hooded figure.  After strangling Aristede, the hooded figure
        picks up a sword which he had dropped and leaves... The vision
           Charity screams, "The young man! He's dead!".  Petofi, puzzled,
        says, "The young man?  But it was YOUR death you were supposed to
        see".  Charity says, "No, it was Aristede's.  He was killed by
        a hooded man".  Petofi realizes that once again the hand has
        been unpredictable and has shown not Charity's death, but 
        Aristede's and perhaps his own.  He tells Charity to look through
        the window again and tell him what's happening next.  Charity
        sees another vision:
           In the vision she sees a room which she tells Petofi, "I have
        never seen before" (It is the cellar of the old mill building).
        In this room, Petofi is tied to a chair.  The hooded figure with
        the sword comes down the stairs, walks up to Petofi, raises the
        sword, and cuts off Petofi's right hand...
           Charity screams.  Petofi touches her again with his right
        hand, telling her, "Your life is going to change in a way many
        people will find hard to understand..."
           Petofi comes out of the drawing room and tells Quentin, "I've
        taken care of Charity!", and rushes out.  Quentin notices the
        great fear in Petofi's eyes.  He goes into the drawing room,
        but does not see Charity there and calls for her.  She steps
        out from behind the curtains, as if stepping out onto a stage,
        and starts to sing like Pansy Faye...
           Petofi returns to the mill building and tells Aristede, "I've
        learned that our enemies are coming!"  Aristede remarks, "Then we
        should hurry and leave!", but Petofi says, "No, I want to stay
        to learn Barnabas' secret to Time Travel, and besides, I have a
        better idea..."
           Quentin, having ascertained that Charity remembers nothing
        of him being a werewolf, leaves Collinwood.
           Petofi and Aristede are walking through the cemetary, looking
        at headstones.  Petofi finally finds one he deem suitable, one of
        an Abraham Howell and tells Aristede to dig it up.
           Quentin goes to the Old House and tells Magda he'd like her help
        to free Barnabas.  Magda replies that it wouldn't make any sense to
        try because Petofi is too powerful.  Quentin tells her, "That's
        just it.  Something has happened to terrify him.  I saw the fear
        in his eyes.  Now would be the perfect time to act".  There's
        a knock at the door.  Magda goes and opens it, but finds that 
        there's no one there.  Then she sees that there is a note 
        affixed to the door with a dagger.  She takes it down and reads
        it aloud, "Between life and death, there is not enough room for
        a flea to jump".  Magda is horrifed.  Quentin asks, "What does
        it mean?"  Magda replies, "It is the traditional warning of
        the tribe of King Johnny Romano..."

           Petofi goes to Charles Delaware Tate's cottage and finds
        Tate painting a picture of a beautiful woman.  Petofi derisively
        remarks, "Are you drawing her again? Drawing another picture
        of your ideal woman?"  Tate replies, "Yes".  Petofi remarks,
        "It's a waste of time, she doesn't exist".  Tate replies, "She's
        real enough to me".  Petofi replies, "I'll indulge you the fantasy
        as you have served me so well.  I have one more thing for you to
        do for me".  He takes off his right glove.  Tate is shocked to
        see that the hand has been reattached.  Petofi touches Tate with
           Tate tells Petofi, "This is the most grisly thing you've ever
        asked me to do! Perhaps an embalmer might be more suitable for
        the job", but reluctantly agrees to do it.  Petofi gives him
        a leather doctor-type bag and tells clark, "I'll come for it
        at 1:00".
           At the Collinsport Inn, Tim finds Amanda in her room packing.
        He asks, "What are you doing?"  She replies, "I'm tired of
        putting up with that pompous boor Trask! I'm leaving!"  Tim
        tells her, "You've got to stay and finish the job!", but she
        refuses.  He tells her, "All right, leave if you want to,
        but there's one more person I want you to see before you do".
        Amanda asks, "What's his name?"  Tim replies, "Count Petofi".
           Magda goes to the Mill building cellar and tells Petofi,
        "The gypsies are coming".  Petofi replies, "I already know".
        Magda asks, "How?"  Petofi replies, "I would like to say that
        I used my great clairvoyant powers to find out, but I must
        admit that I found out purely by accident".  Magda asks for
        his help.  Petofi refuses.  Magda tells him, "But they're
        a danger to you too!".  Petofi replies, "No they're not.  They
        came here after you.  They don't even know I'm here".  Magda
        threatens, "If you don't help me, I'll tell them you're here!"
        He touches her with the hand and says, "You won't be able to.
        You won't be able to speak or write my name.  Try to do so".
        She tries but finds she cannot.
           After Magda leaves, Amanda comes walking down the stairs.
        She tells Petofi, "I'm a friend of Tim Shaw's. I've came to you
        for help".  She lifts her veil.  Petofi is stunned.  Amanda
        looks exactly like Charles's Delaware Tate's ideal woman.
        Petofi asks, "Have you ever had your portrait painted?"  Amanda
        replies, "No".  Petofi asks, "Have you ever met a man named
        Charles Delaware Tate?"  Amanda again answers, "No".  He asks
        her about her past, but she will only tell him that she's from
        New York. Petofi asks her, "What do you want?"  Amanda replies,
        "Tim is bent on revenge on a man named Trask.  I'm afraid his
        obsession will get him hurt.  I've heard you have a powerful
        talisman which would help Tim accomplish his plan without as
        much risk.  Could I borrow it?"  Petofi refuses.
           Magda returns to the old house and finds that it has been
        ransacked.  A man walks down the stairs.  Magda gasps, "King
        Johnny Romano!"  He demands, "Give me the hand.  Magda replies,
        "I don't have it".  He asks, "Then who does?"  Magda tries to
        say, but finds she cannot speak the name.  King Johnny growls,
        "You don't remember? I'll help you with your memory!", and slaps
        her in the face several times.  But all Magda can say is, "I don't
        have it".  King Johnny tells her, "I don't believe you.  I will
        finish my search of the house" and leaves to do so.
           Amanda returns to Tim at the Inn and tells him what happened
        with Petofi.  She begs him, "Please, leave with me! It's too
        dangerous here!", but Tim refuses.  She asks him, "Why do you
        hate Trask so much anyway?"  Tim replies, "He was responsible
        for the deaths of two people I knew, one of whom I loved..."
        He quickly adds, "...like a sister".  Unsuccessful in her attempt
        to get Tim to leave, Amanda tells him, "Then I'll stay here until
        I can convince you to".  She warns him, "Stay away from this Count
        Petofi.  He's the strangest, most frightening man I've ever met".
        She adds, "It's also strange that he was so interested in my
        past".  Tim asks, "Why should you find that so strange?" Amanda
        replies, "Because I have absolutely no memories of my past. All
        I can remember are the last two years. Before that, nothing"
           At the old house King Johnny Romano has searched the rest of
        the old house and has returned to the living room.  Magda asks,
        "Now are you convinced I don't have it?"  King Johnny gasps and
        points towards and overturned chair, seeing something here.
        He picks up the chair.  Lying on the floor underneath it is
        the ornate box that used to contain the hand.  Recovering from
        her intial shock, Magda says, "Oh, it's just the box.  The
        hand's not in there anymore".  King Johnny Romano puts the box
        on a table, opens it, looks inside, then closes it again.  He
        tells Magda, "Look".  Magda opens the box and is shocked to
        see that the hand is indeed in there...

           King Johnny Romano gloats over the hand, saying, "I am a good
        King.  I have gotten the hand back for my tribe", then, turning
        to Magda, says, "You, on the other hand, are a liar, a thief and
        a murderer.  You murdered Julianka, a fellow gypsy". Magda
        protests, "I didn't kill Julianka...", but finds herself unable
        to say the name of the man who did.  King Johnny Romano, not
        believing her, tells her, "I'm going to bring you back to Boston
        for a gypsy trial", then tells her, "I'm going to perform a
        ceremony of thanks over the hand for getting it back.  You should
        be glad I got the hand back.  Your punishment would have been
        much worse otherwise".  As King Johnny Romano is performing the
        ceremony over the hand, Magda, seeing that all his attention is
        on the hand and the ceremony, goes to the front door, trying to
        escape, but when she opens the doors, she finds her way blocked
        by a large, muscular black man standing outside.  King Johnny
        Romano and the black man take Magda away.  Hiding outside,
        Aristede sees them take her away...
           Aristede returns to the mill building.  Petofi says, "Let me
        guess.  They found the fake hand exactly where you put it, and
        took it and Magda away".  Aristede replies, "That's exactly what
        happened".  Petofi asks Aristede to bring him the family history.
        Aristede does so.  Petofi reads it, saying, "It might give me
        some ideas..."
           Aristede is alone in his room.  An invisible presence comes
        into the room and starts overturning furniture and blowing out
        the candles.  Terrified, Aristede screams for Petofi.  Petofi
        comes.  Aristede tells him, "There's something in this room!"
        Petofi replies, "I know who it is", and performs a ceremony to
        banish it.  The spirit leaves.  Petofi tells Aristede, "It was
        the spirit of the man we took the hand from".              
           Petofi goes and releases Barnabas from the coffin - carefully
        holding a cross in front of him to keep him from escaping. 
        Aristede comes into the room holding two torches.  Petofi tells
        Barnabas, "I suspect that you came back in time to help one of
        the 1969 Collinses.  You must care for them.  If you do not tell
        me the secret to time travel, I'll send Aristede to kill the
        present day Collinses and burn down Collinwood.  Then the future 
        Collinses you care so much about will never exist..."
           King Johnny Romano, Magda and the black guard, whom King Johnny
        refers to as Istvan, are camped in the woods somewhere.  King 
        Johnny tells Istvan to go get more wood for the fire.  He obediently
        leaves to do so.  Magda remarks, "He don't talk much, does he?"
        King Johnny replies, "He was once being held for a crime against
        the tribe, but escaped while awaiting trial.  Whe he was caught,
        in addition to the punishment for the crime, his tongue was cut
        out as punishment for escaping. YOU'D better not thing about
        escaping, Magda".  
           Barnabas calls Petofi's bluff, saying, "You wouldn't dare
        carry out your threat.  You would thereby destroy the future
        and you wouldn't be able to go there either".  Petofi angrily
        puts Barnabas back into his coffin and immobiliizes him again.
        (Huh?  It would be a Collin-less future, but there would still
        be a future, and since Petofi just wants to go there to escape
        the gypsies, why would he care whether the Collinses exited
        there or not?")
           King Johnny and Magda hear Istvan grunting urgently.  They turn
        and see that Istvan, who has returned with the firewood, is pointing
        to their knapsacks, which have all been opened, their contents
        strewn about.  They wonder who could have done so so quickly and
        silently that they heard nothing.  Then the ghost of Abraham
        Howell appears, takes the hand, and vanishes.  King Johnny turns
        to Magda and asks, in a very sarcastic tone of voice, "Did you 
        recognize that man, Magda?"  Magda replies that she did not.  King 
        Johnny angrily says, "Yes you did, Magda.  That must have been the 
        ghost of the man whose body you cut that hand from.  You've tried 
        to pull the oldest trick in the gypsy book on me, the bajoor, the 
        big switch!"  He turns to Istvan and orders him to repack the 
        knapsacks, but when he turns back, Magda is gone.  He tells Istvan 
        to go look for Magda. Istvan goes in the direction Magda must have 
        gone, but passes right by where she's hiding behind some bushes 
        without seeing her.

           Petofi goes to Charles Delaware Tate and congratulates him
        on his work, on how authentic the fake hand he made looked.
        Tate is busy painting what looks like a piece of jewelry on
        a small piece of cardboard.  Petofi looks at the picture of 
        Tate's "Ideal woman" and asks, "Are you sure this isn't someone
        you've met before somewhere?"  Tate replies, "I'm sure. It's just
        someone I dreamed up".  Petofi looks at the piece of jewelry
        Tate is working on and asks, "Is that a draft of something
        you're going to put on the larger portrait?"  Tate replies,
        "It is".  Petofi asks, "Where did the idea for the design come 
        from?"  Tate replies, "It came to me last night in a dream".
        Petofi remarks, "I've met a most remarkable girl".  Tate
        sarcastically remarks, "Congratulations".  Petofi continues,
        "You've got to see this girl.  She is most remarkable!"  Tate
        asks, "Remarkable? How?"  But Petofi coyly refuses to tell him, 
        saying only, "You've got to see her.  She's staying at the
        Inn, and comes down from her room at 6:00 every evening
        for dinner.  If you go there at 6 tonight, you'll be able to 
        see her".                                
           At Collinwood, Trask continues to "help" Amanda with her
        problems.  He asks her to come stay at Collinwood so he can
        better "help" her.  Amanda refuses, saying, "I don't think
        it would be proper".  
           Amanda returns to the Inn and tells Tim about Trask wanting
        her to stay at Collinwood.  Tim tells her, "I think you should".
        Amanda is shocked and refuses, saying, "I don't want to be so
        near Trask for so long".  But he tells her his plan, "It's
        obvious that Trask has fallen in love with you.  Trask has been
        known to remove obstacles to get what he wants.  As he removed
        Minerva to get Judith, he'll try to remove Judith to get you.
        Soon, you'll be his rich wife".  Amanda, shocked, exclaims,
        "You want me to MARRY Trask?"  Tim assures her, "I'll make sure
        it'll only be a short time before you go from being a rich wife
        to being a rich widow".  Amanda complains, "You've made promises
        to me before you haven't kept.  For example, you promised to
        replace that necklace you took from me with a better one".
        Tim, getting the hint, leaves.
           A little later, Tim returns with a box from Ezra Braithwate's
        for Amanda.
           It is 5 minutes to 6.  Petofi brings Charles Delaware Tate
        to the lobby of the Collinsport Inn and tells him to wait there.
        Petofi leaves.  Amanda and Tim come down to go to dinner.  Tate
        sees Amanda and is totally shocked.  Not only does she look
        exactly like his ideal woman, the piece of jewelry she's wearing
        around her neck looks just like the piece of jewelry he painted in
        the morning.
           Tate returns to the cottage, looks at the portrait of his
        ideal woman, and asks, "How is this possible?!"

            Magda flees to Collinwood and tells Quentin what happened.
        Quentin asks, "Why didn't you just tell them about Petofi?"
        Magda replies, "I couldn't...I can't explain".  Quentin realizes
        the Petofi must have put a spell on Magda so she couldn't tell.
        He tells her he has a plan to make Petofi release Barnabas.
           Quentin goes to Beth's room and tells her his plan, saying
        he needs her help.  She tells him she's fearful, saying she
        fears that Barnabas will be angry with her for leaving when
        he last summoned her.  Quentin tells her, "Don't worry.  Barnabas
        will understand that Petofi made you leave".  Quentin writes
        a letter and gives it to Beth.  THey kiss.  Unknown to them,
        Charity is outside and sees them kiss through the open door.
           Quentin goes to Petofi and demands that he release Barnabas
        threatening, "I'll tell the gypsies you have the hand and I'll tell
        them where you are if you don't".  Petofi, looking unconerned,
        replies, "I'll just put a spell on you making you unable to 
        tell as I did with Magda", but Quentin tells him, "That won't
        work.  I've already written a letter with the information and
        given it to someone with instructions to take it to the gypsy
        caravan if I don't return unharmed by 1:00".  The clock now
        reads 11:45.  Petofi, still unconcerned, replies, "I'll just
        put a spell on you to force you to tell me who this person is,
        then I'll put a spell on this person".  Quentin lies, "You
        won't have to put a spell on me to find out who the person is.
        It's Angelique, someone over whom you have no power".
           Chairity, furious with jealousy, gets a bottle of poison
        and thinks to herself, "Won't Quentin be surprised when he
        comes home and finds Beth Chavez dead!"  She goes to Beth's
        room and complains, "I'm bored and lonely.  Would you come
        up and have a drink with me?"  Beth is puzzled by Charity's
        strange behavior, but goes up with her anyway.
           Quentin and Petofi wait each other out.  Quentin tells Petofi,
        "You'd better make up your mind. There's only 5 minutes left".
           In the drawing room at Collinwood, Charity pours two drinks,
        poisoning one.  She gives the poisoned one to Beth.  They drink.
        Beth collapses...

           Magda goes into the drawing room and finds Beth lying on
        the floor unconscious with a glass lying beside her.  She sniffs
        the glass.
           Quentin and Petofi continue to wait each other out.  Quentin
        tells Petofi, "There's only one minute left".  Petofi recalls
        the horror of having his hand cut off by the gypsies, the pain
        and horror of seeing Miklos Romano standing ove him holding
        his severed hand.  He breaks down and tells Quentin, "I'll
        release Barnabas!"
           Beth regains consciousness and awakens in her own bed.
        She finds Magda there.  Magda tells her she cured her with
        gypsy herbs.
           Quentin opens Barnabas' coffin and takes the cross away.
        As they are leaving, Petofi tells Barnabas, "We'll meet again!",
        and vows to learn the secret of Time Travel.
           Charles Delaware comes to the Mill building and asks Petofi,
        "What do you know about that woman?"  Petofi replies, "I know
        little, save for the fact that she's from New York and is
        travelling with a man named Tim Shaw, a man who possessed my
        hand for awhile and made a lot of money using it".
           Magda leaves Beth's room and is immediately grabbed by Istvan.
           Quentin and Barnabas are walking through the woods.  Barnabas
        tells Quentin, "I'd like to go to Collinwood to see how Jamison's
        doing.  You'll have to smuggle me in, as I can no longer
        dematerialize or materialize with the mark of Petofi on my hand".
           Quentin smuggles Barnabas into Collinwood and hides him in
        Beth's room temporarily.  He takes the letter back from her,
        then leaves to get Magda.  Beth apologizes to Barnabas for
        leaving him when he summoned her to help him. Barnabas replies
        that he understands that it wasn't her fault, that Petofi
        forced her.
           Quentin goes through the house looking for Magda, but cannot
        find her.
           In the woods, Istvan is tying Magda's hands.  Magda tries
        to convince him to let her go, asking, "How can you do the
        bidding of those who cut out your tongue?  Let me go and
        we can both escape from the Romanos".  Istvan hears the sound
        of leaves crunching and quickly gags Magda.  Someone comes up

        he's holding.  Magda looks at him.

    It is King Johnny Romano. He tells Magda she was foolish to think she
  could escape from him.  They take her to Eagle Hill cemetary. She asks
  why he's taken her there.  He tells her because this is where it all
  started, where she and Sandor found Barnabas, and this is where it'll
  end for her.  Magda asks how he could know abou Barnabas.  King Johnny
  merely replies that he knows many things.  Magda then realizes that
  he must have gotten the information from Sandor, perhaps with torture.
  King Johnny admits that this is true, that it's too bad he had to kill
  Sandor, that he was a nice guy.  Magda asks him what he's going to do.
  King Johnny replies that he's going to hold her trial here.
    They go into the secret room.  King Johnny tells Magda this is where
  they're going to hold her trial.  Magda asks where the jury is.  King
  Johnny mentions the names of some famous gypsies and tells Magda they're
  going to be the jury.  "But they're all dead", Magda protests.  No problem,
  he replies, and summons up their spirits.  King Johnny presents the case
  against her, that she stole the hand, that she tried to pull the 'bajoor'
  on him, that she murdered Julianka.  Magda tries to defend herself, but
  cannot because of the spell put on her by Petofi.  King Johnny proclaims
  the trial over and asks the jury for a decision.  Magda protests, "Wait !
  Don't I get to call witnesses ? ".  King Johnny tells her he'll let her
  call one, and asks who she'd like. She replies, "Barnabas". He tells her
  she can't have him as a witness because he's not a gypsy.  Magda protests
  that that the only gypsies she could have called as witnesses are all
  dead.  He asks her who she would have called if they were alive.  'Sandor',
  she answers. 'No problem', answers King Johnny, and summons his spirit.
  But alas, Magda has made a bad choice. Sandor, who was away when all the
  charges occured, isn't much help. The jury finds Magda guilty and Istvan,
  as foreman, gives her the 'thumbs down'.  King Johnny tells Magda she has
  been sentenced to death.  Magda asks how he plans to execute her.
  He tells her they'll play a 'game of hunt the weasel', with her as the
  weasel.  He tells her he'll give her a head start, and if she can escape,
  she'll be free, but if she does not, she'll die.  He tells her to run.
  She does.  After awhile, King Johnny, Istvan and the jury all leave
  to give chase.
     In the cemetary, Magda is tracked down by one of the spirits named
  'Sergio'.  She manages to cast a spell sending him back to his grave
  and continues running.

  them too.  She continues running.
     She runs into the ghost of Sandor, who tells her he's come to help
  her.  She asks how. He tells her the only way he can - by taking her
  back with him to the land of the dead.  She tells him she doesn't want
  to go there and sends him away too.  King Johnny an Istvan appear and
  King Johnny congratulates her on having gotten rid of all the spirits,
  but tells her she can't get rid of him, and pulls a knife on her.

           King Johnny Romano tells Magda, "You have only two choices
        - the knife or the cliff".  But Barnabas shows up and orders
        King Johnny to let Magda go.  King Johnny, who's heard of
        Barnabas the vampire but has never seen him, orders Istvan
        to kill him.  Istvan walks up to Barnabas and prepares to
        strangle him, but Barnabas puts Istvan into a trance and
        orders him, "Walk off the cliff".  King Johnny is amazed to
        see Istvan obediently walks towards the edge of the cliff
        and tries to stop him, but is unable to do so and Istvan
        walks off to his death.  Barnabas tells King Johnny, "If
        you don't let Magda go, I'll do the same to you".  King
        Johnny exclaims, "I know who you are now!", and pulls out a 
        cross to protect himself.  Barnabas tells King Johnny, "I know
        who has the hand and where it is.  I'll tell you if you 
        release Magda".  King Johnny accepts the deal.
           They go back to the old house.  King Johnny asks, "Who has
        the hand?"  Barnabas tells him, "There'll be one more condition.
        You are to use the hand to cure Quentin Collins when you get it
        back".  King Johnny is reluctant, saying he can't use the hand
        to cure a non-gypsy, but agrees when Barnabas reminds him that
        Quentin married a gypsy and has a gypsy daughter, that the curse
        will affect all her male descendents, and by curing Quentin, he
        will indirectly cure Quentin's gypsy descendants.  Barnabas tells
        King Johnny, "Count Petofi has the hand", and tells him where
        he can find Petofi.  King Johnny says, "I have to make some
        important preparations" and leaves.
           King Johnny returns wearing a purple cape.  He draws a sword
        and Magda gasps, "The golden scimatar of the Romanos!"  King Johnny
        replies, "Yes, the very sword that cut off Count Petofi's hand
        a hundred years ago!"
           King Johnny goes to the old mill building, but finds no one
        there.  Seeing a book lying on the table, he picks it up and
        looks through it.  It is the Collins Family history.  Suddenly,
        Count Petofi grabs King Johnny from behind and tries to strangle
        him with the hand, but King Johnny struggles free easily and
        identifies himself, "I am King Johnny Romano!  My grandfather 
        came to me in a dream after he died and made me keeper of the
        hand.  I am therefore the one person on earth over whom the
        hand has no power!"  Petofi sneeringly remarks, "You're no
        real king! No real king would be wearing such a tawdry cape and
        fake jewelry as you are! Only I, Count Petofi, know the real
        power of this hand.  Neither you nor any other gypsy knows its
        full power.  I will use it to make you rich, if you will let me
        go".  King Johnny refuses the deal and tells Petofi, "I will
        cut off your hand like a hundred years ago, and this time,
        I'll kill you as well!"
           At the old house, Magda and Barnabas wait nervously, wondering
        what's taking King Johnny so long.  Magda fearfully remarks,
        "Perhaps Petofi wasn't there.  Perhaps he was smart enough to
        have left already".  Barnabas replies, "No, if that were the 
        case, King Johnny would have returned already. He must have found
        Petofi.  Get Quentin and prepare for King Johnny's return".
          At the mill building, Petofi is tied to a chair.  King Johnny
        raises the sword over his head, aims it at Petofi's right wrist,
        and prepares to strike...

           Suddenly, King Johnny gasps and drops the sword.  He collapses
        onto the floor, a dagger sticking out of his back.  Standing in
        the doorway is Aristede, who has thrown the knife.  With his
        dying breath, King Johnny tells Petofi, "You are not safe!  In 
        nine days, my spirit will arise and give the power to another
        gypsy!" He then curses Aristede, then dies.
           Quentin questions Jamison/David about how he could have
        known about him in the future and learns that it was his ghost
        that David saw.  Angelique shows up.  David sees her and calls
        her "Cassandra".  Quentin realizes that she too must have been
        in the future.  She admits this.  She offers to try to cure
        Jamison and Edward with her powers if he'll agree to marry her.
        After thinking it over for a while, he agrees.
           Petofi and Aristede take King Johnny's body into the woods
        and bury it.  Petofi senses that someone is trying to remove his
        spell on Jamison.  He tells Aristede, "Go back to the mill building
        and destroy the golden scimitar while I go to Collinwood and take
        care of the matter".
           Petofi arrives at Collinwood.  Angelique is upstairs saying
        some incantations over Jamison.  She feels Petofi's presence
        and rushes downstairs.  He orders her to stop what she's doing.
        She refuses.
           At the mill building, Aristede is frantically searching for
        something.  He hears a door open and Petofi's voice boom,
        "Get me the ______ Candlestick and the scroll of ______"
        When Petofi gets down the stairs, Aristede tells him, "I can't
        find the scimitar.  When I got back, it was gone".  Petofi tells
        him to get the requested items.  While Aristede is gone from the
        room, Petofi wonders what could have happened to the golden
           Angelique continues with her incantations over Jamison.
        It appears to be working, but suddenly there's a flash of
        lightning outside and Jamison screams and loses consciousness.

           Angelique vows, "Petofi! I won't let you have the boy!"
        She goes to the fireplace and starts to pray to the prince of
        Darkness, saying, "If you will remove Petofi's spell, soon, 
        Quentin will be yours".
           Edward is still in the tower room.  Charity is wandering
        around the house, singing the Pansy song.  Edward hears her
        and calls to her.  Charity tries to open the tower room door
        but finds it locked.  Edward tells her, "I'm being held
        prisoner in here!".  Charity promises, "I'll get the key and
        let you out".
           Angelique succeeds.  Jamison awakens knowing he's Jamison
        again.  Angelique asks, "What's the last thing you remember?"
        Jamison replies, "Saying goodbye to Mr. Fenn-Gibbon".
           Edward bangs on the tower room door, demanding to be let
        out.  He too, has returned to normal and no longer thinks he's
        a manservant.  Charity returns with the key and lets him out.
        Edward asks what's wrong with her.
           Quentin goes to the room where Angelique and Jamison are.
        Angelique tells Quentin, "Jamison is all right now", but suddenly
        Jamison exclaims to Quentin, "Why are you trying to kill David
        Collins?"  Quentin asks, "Why would you ask such a strange
        question", but Jamison returns to normal again and says, "I don't
        know".  Quentin asks, "Do you know who David Collins is?" 
        Jamison replies, "Someone you're trying to kill".  Edward comes
        barging into the room and angrily demands to know, "Who locked
        me in the tower room??"  Quentin replies, "I did"  Edward asks,
        "Why?"  Quentin replies, "For the past month, both you and
        Jamison were been under the spell of Count Petofi".  Edward
        remarks, "That's preposterous!".  Quentin asks Edward, "What
        date is it?"  Edward replies, "July 23rd, of course".  Quentin
        tells him, "It's August the 28th today", and shows him a 
        newspaper to prove it.  Edward tells Quentin, "I'd like to speak
        to you later, but right now, I'd like to speak to Jamison alone".
        Quentin and Angelique leave.
           Edward promises Jamison that from now on, everything will
        be all right.  
           Angelique and Quentin go to the drawing room and close the
        doors.  Angelique tells Quentin, "Now that I have fufilled my
        part of the bargain, you must fufill yours and marry me".  Quentin
        reluctant agrees to do so.  Unknown to them, Charity is outside
        in the foyer eavesdropping through the door...
           Edward comes to the drawing room and asks to speak to Quentin
        alone.  Angelique leaves.  Edward asks Quentin, "Who's this Count
        Petofi?"  Quentin replies, "It's the true identity of your old
        houseguest Victor Fenn-Gibbon".  Edward asks, "Has Barnabas been
        caught during the month I was away?"  Quentin replies, "No".
        Edsward says, "We must immediately resume the hunt for him!"
        Quentin replies, "There are more important things to take care 
        of first. There's Count Petofi, and then there's Gregory Trask
        He's has taken control of he house", but Edward, seemingly 
        obsessed with Barnabas, vehemently disagrees and storms out
        of the room vowing to hunt down and destroy Barnabas.
           Charity comes into the drawing room and asks, "Are you really
        going to marry Miss Moon Eyes?"  Quentin replies, "Yes I am".
        Full of jealousy, Charity takes a letter opener and tries to
        stab Quentin.  They struggle.  Edward comes back into the room
        and helps Quentin disarm Charity.  Edward asks, "What's wrong
        with her?"  Quentin replies, "She's been like this the past
        couple of weeks" and leaves.  Charity goes into a Pansy Faye
        type psychic trance.  She tells Edward, "I'm seeing the near
        future.  The date is September 10..." She narrarates the vision
        the vision she sees....
            In the vision, Angelique comes to Collinwood looking for
        Quentin.  She hears his music playing from inside the drawing
        room and goes in, but he's not there.  She finds instead a
        portrait of him on an easel.  The painting is bleeding from
        the chest, and the blood runs onto the floor.  She sees that
        the blood on the floor goes off in a trail, and follows it.
        It leads up to the tower room, where she finds Quentin lying
        on the floor dead with a terrible wound to his chest...
           Charity comes out of the trance and screams, "It's Quentin's
        death that I see!!!"

           Distraught about what she's just seen, Chairty walks through
        the woods, crying.  She runs into Magda.  Magda asks, "What's
        wrong?"  Charity replies, "I have forseen that Quentin will die
        on September 10!"
           Gregory Trask returns to Collinwood from the sanatarium.
        Quentin gleefully tells him, "Jamison and Edward have both
        recovered".  Magda brings Charity back to Collinwood.  Charity
        sees Quentin and grabs and hugs him.  Trask scolds her for this,
        and she runs off, upset.  Quentin tells Trask, "You daughter 
        ought to be in an asylum" and leaves too.  Magda tells Trask
        about finding Charity in the woods, then goes to look after
        Charity in her room.
           Trask confronts Quentin and accuses him of leading Charity
        on.  Quentin denies it.  
           Magda comes down and tells Trask that Charity wants to see
        him.  Trask goes upstairs.  Quentin tells Magda, "There's a
        full moon tonight.  I don't think I could stand it happening
        again".  Trask comes back down;  Magda and Quentin leave.
           Trask is alone in the drawing room.  The windows suddenly
        blow open, and the doors slam shut.  A voice starts talking
        to Trask.  At first, he thinks it's Minerva and begs her to
        stop haunting him, but then realizes that it isn't the spirit
        of Minerva talking.  The spirit, apparently that of one of
        Quentin's victims, tells Trask, "The killer, the beast that
        walks like a man, is in this house!"  Trask asks, "Who is it?",
        but the spirit leaves without telling him.
           Quentin goes to his room and sees the spirit of one of his
        victims, Tessie, there.  It disappears.  Distraught, Quentin
        sits down at his desk and writes a suicide note.  Magda comes
        in and asks, "What are you doing?"  He tells her he's planning
        to commit suicide.  She begs him not to, tellilng him, "After
        tonight, we'll have another whole month to try to find a cure".
           In Quentin's room, Magda chains Quentin up.  Quentin tells Magda
        to get a gun loaded with silver bullets from his desk drawer and
        asks her to promise to shoot him should he break free from the chains
        during the night.  Magda reluctantly promises to do so.  Trask comes
        bursting into the room, exclaiming, "I've got to speak to 
        Quentin!"  He sees Quentin sitting there in chains, and Magda
        holding the gun. He takes the gun from Magda, sees that it's
        loaded with silver bullets and says to Quentin, "I won't
        ask why Magda is holding a gun loaded with silver bullets,
        or even why you're manacled.  I'll just wait until the moon
        rises and see what happens..."
