       Megan suddenly tells Philip that 'he' wants her and goes upstairs.
    She comes down holding the baby and frantically tells him something
    is wrong with it, that it has a terrible fever.  They briefly consider
    calling a doctor, but quickly decide that it will do no good, that the
    only thing they can do is find the book, that it will tell them what
    to do.
       David goes into the drawing room and locks the doors. He he has with
    him a large box, labeled 'Jigsaw puzzle'. He opens it, and inside is the
    book. Carolyn comes and finds the drawing room doors locked. The phone
    rings and she answers it. It is Megan. Megan describes the book to her
    and asks her if she knows what happened to it.  Carolyn tells her she
    doesn't. Megan gets angry.  Carolyn asks her why she's so angry, is the
    book valuable?  Megan apologizes, saying she's upset because the baby
    is sick.  Carolyn looks at the closed drawing room doors and, getting
    the idea that David might have something to do with it, tells Megan to
    take care of the baby and let her take care of the book.  Carolyn knocks
    at the doors and demands that David lets her in. He does. She asks him
    what he's doing in the drawing room with the doors locked. David lies
    that they weren't locked, that they were stuck.  Carolyn explains that
    a book is missing from the antique store and asks him if he has anything
    to do with it. David replies that he doesn't.  Barnabas arrives.
    Carolyn starts to walk around the room, searching.  Seeing that David
    is standing protectively by the curtains, she pushes him away and looks
    behind the curtains.  She finds the puzzle box there, but when she opens
    it, she finds that it contains only puzzle pieces.  David retorts that
    it's Amy's, that he took it from her and hid it in retaliation for her
    taking something of his, and complains that she blames him for
    everything, saying that he had nothing to do with the book disappearing
    from the antique store.  Barnabas pricks up his ears in interest.
    David continues, "Why, it wasn't even in English!".  Carolyn asks him
    how he would know that if he had nothing to do with it. David replies
    that he saw it at the antique store.  He angrily tells her that if there's
    anyone who's suspicious, it's that Mr. Prescott who was with her at
    Collinwood, who came to the antique store, who she pretended not to
       Barnabas goes to the antique store and tells the Todds that he has
    decided to sell the Hitchcock chair they wanted so much and asks Philip
    to come pick it up . Philip tells him he doesn't have time to get it
    right now because the baby is sick.  Barnabas replies, "The only time
    that matters is the time of the Leviathan people".  The Todds seem to
    go into a trance for a few seconds, then come out of it, and Philip
    says, "I think I'll go get the chair", apparently with no memory of
    what Barnabas has just said.
       David goes into the drawing room and opens a drawer in he desk.
    Elizabeth comes and he quickly takes out a piece of paper and closes
    the drawer. Elizabeth asks him what he's doing going throught the desk.
    He tells her he was just looking for some paper to draw on.  She tells
    him that Carolyn told him about the missing book and asks him if he
    had anything to do with it.  He angrily tells her he doesn't, and in
    retaliation, tells Elizabeth that Carolyn has a new boyfriend, that
    he saw them kissing outside last night, that he was a much older man.
       Elizabeth confronts Carolyn and tells her she know about her new
    'boyfriend', that from what David described, she can see that they
    don't have much in common and asks her to carefully reconsider seeing
       At the old house, Barnabas and Philip come downstairs, Philip
    carrying the Hitchcock chair. Barnabas tells him they have one more
    thing to do. He takes him to the altar, explaining that 'Only our
    people can see it'.  He tells him that it is their place of sacrifice,
    and punishment, and tells Philip he is to be punished....
       Carolyn goes to the antique store and finds the baby sick.  She
    suggest that they call a doctor, but Megan refuses.  Megan tells her
    that she's worried about Philip, that he left last night and hasn't
    returned. She tells Carolyn to watch the baby while she go look for him.
    Carolyn starts to take the baby upstairs, saying she's taking him
    to his room, but Megan tells him not to, to leave him down here.
       Megan goes to the old house and knocks on the door.  Barnabas opens
    the door. Megan asks him where Philip is. Barnabas tells her he doesn't
    know, that he was only with him at the old house for about 15 minutes
    last night and then left.  After Megan leaves, Barnabas goes back into
    the living room. Sitting in a chair is Philip, looking like he's in
    some sort of trance.
       Megan returns to the antique shop in a frantic state. She tells
    Carolyn someone is trying to kill her, that the killer is coming
    and runs upstairs.  The front door opens...

       But it's only Julia.  Julia sees the box lying on a table.  Carolyn
    tells her somethings wrong with the baby.  She starts to examine it
    and notes that it has a fever.  While examining it, she remarks, "That's
    a strange birthmark". Megan rushes back downstairs and takes the baby
    and refuses to let her examine it further.  After Megan leaves with
    the baby, Carolyn and Julia discuss Megan's strange behavior, Carolyn
    telling Julia Megan was convinced earlier that someone was trying to
    kill her.  Julia once again examines the box. Carolyn asks her why she's
    so interested in that box. Julia replies that she saw it in Barnabas'
    house and is surprised to see it here.  Carolyn tells her she shouldn't
    be because Barnabas sold a lot of things to the Todds.  Julia remarks
    "Yes. But I never thought he'd sell THIS..."
       At Collinwood, David goes into the drawing room and takes the book
    out of the desk.  Amy, who, unknown to him is sitting behing the couch
    playing with some dolls, comes out and asks him why he lied to Carolyn
    about the book.  He replies that it doesn't matter what he told anyone
    about it, that no one's going to know he took it because he's going
    to burn it.  Amy tells him he can't do that and tries to take the book
    from him. They struggle over it, and they both lose their grip. The
    books falls on the desk and opens to a page where there is a picture
    of the four-headed snake in blue.  David looks at it and a strange
    look comes over his face.  He tells Amy that he has decided not to
    burn it and tells her to go out into the foyer and watch for anyone
    coming while he reads it.  She tells him that it's not in English
    and he can't read it. He tells her he can. She asks him to read some
    of it to her and prove it. He tells her he can't because she's not
    allowed to hear any of it and tells her to go stand watch. After Amy
    goes into the foyer, David reads, "Those who have been hidden will
    come, and those who are here will know that their time is over, that
    it is the time of the Leviathan people.."
       Megan comes back downstairs and tells Carolyn that she has given the
    baby some aspirin and it is OK.  There is a phone call and Carolyn
    answers.  The man identifies himself as the man who sent the telegram
    about the Tate painting, that he is in Collinwood right now.  Carolyn
    explains that the shop no longer has the painting, that it has been
    bought, but that she can direct him to the person who has bought it.
    She explains that the buyer lives at Collinwood and that it would be
    best to go there at 5:00 because that is when she is usually home.
    She starts to give directions to Collinwood, but the man tells her
    that's not necessary because he already knows where it is.
       At Collinwood, Julia, apparently having received a call from
    Carolyn telling her the man would be there at 5:00, tells David
    to deliver a note from her to Barnabas telling him about this. But
    David refuses, saying he has something important to do and runs out
    the door.  Looking at the clock and seeing that it's a quarter to five,
    Julia leaves to go to the old house herself.
       When Julia returns, it is 5:15. The drawing room doors are closed.
    She hears Carolyn inside apologizing to someone, saying she told Julia
    to be here at 5:00 and is surprised she isn't because she's usually
    very prompt.  Julia opens the drawing room doors and is surprised to see
    that Carolyn is talking not to a man, but to a woman who looks just like
    Amanda Harris.  Carolyn tells Julia that she too is surprised that it
    is a woman, that the call to the antique shop came from a man.  The
    woman, introducing herself as 'Olivia Corey', explains that she has found
    that it expedites business transactions if she lets other party think
    they are dealing with a man as long as possible.  Julia tells her she
    doesn't think that she'll be interested in the painting because it's
    not a portrait. The woman asks how she knows she's only interested in
    portraits. Julia explains that Charles Delaware Tate had painted a
    number of portraits of a woman who looked just like her, and it's
    obvious that she'd be interested in them. Corey admits that this is
    true and ask Julia to excuse her vanity, explaining that she is an
    actress and must be preoccupied in her looks.  Carolyn leaves to make
    some tea. Olivia asks to look at the picture anyway. Julia tells her
    it's a landscape and shows it to her, emphasizing that it's not for
    sale.  Julia remarks that she's heard of her before but never
    realized that she resembled Amanda Harris so much. Olivia replies that
    that's not strange because Amanda Harris was her grandmother.  Julia
    asks her who her grandfather was.  Olivia, remarking that Julia seems
    to have an interest in genealogy as well as art, tells her it was a man
    named 'Lofton'. Olivia asks Julia how she knew the woman in the portraits
    was named Amanda Harris, saying that she's never identified in any of
    the portraits, that the only reason she knows is because she's her
    granddaughter. Julia lies that she must have read it somewhere.
    Olivia looks around the drawing room and remarks that there are
    many interesting portraits in the house, and asks Julia if
    there are any from the late 19th century, saying that she has a
    particular interest in those.  Julia replies, "We have no portraits
    of Quentin Collins in the house, if that's what you want to know."
    Olivia replies, "Quentin Collins? Is there some reason I should
    know who that is?".  Carolyn returns with the tea, and the verbal
    feeling out between Julia and Olivia stops.
      David goes to the altar and says, "I am one of you now". The altar
    opens, revealing a hole in the snake slab. David crawls into the hole.

       David finds himself in what are obviously man-made tunnels. He speaks
    the "flesh and bone will be restored" speech and finds it echoing again
    and again. He covers his ears from the noise and falls to the ground
       Carolyn goes to Chris's cottage and tells him about what Sabrina said,
    but says that she does not believe it. He tells her she should, that he's
    some sort of dangerous monster and that she should stay away from him.
    Puzzled and hurt, she leaves. Chris takes out a gun...
       Carolyn goes to the old house to see Barnabas. She hears his voice
    saying "There is no margin for error. Punishment is necessary.."  over
    and over again, but cannot see him. She finds that the sound seems to
    be coming from behind the bookcase, and walks up to it to check, but
    the sound has stopped. She hears Barnabas call her and turns and sees
    him standing at the foot of the stairs.  She asks him how he could have
    just come from upstairs when she heard his voice downstairs earlier. He
    tells her he was experimenting with some electrical equipment.  She tells
    him about her strange conversation with Chris and asks him to explain
    what he meant when he, Barnabas, recommended that she stop seeing Chris.
    Barnabas explains that he thinks Chris is mentally unstable and might
    be dangerous, that Chris is probably right about himself and she should
    listen to him.  He tells her he's certain she'll soon find another
    greater love.  She asks if he's just trying to console her, if this is
    just a platitude. He tells her it is not, that he really feels that this
    will happen, almost as if it were written somewhere, that it is destined
    to happen.
      After Carolyn leaves, Barnabas opens the bookcase and goes into the
    secret room. In there is a tape recorder, silent because the tape has
    run out. Philip is also in there. Barnabas tells him, "You know what
    must be done.". Philip leaves.
      Chris finishes writing a suicide letter and puts it in an envelope
    addressed to Carolyn. He picks up the gun and prepares to shoot himself.
    But he is interrupted by the sound of a woman's crying. He turns and
    finds a woman he does not know standing there. He asks her what she
    wants. She tells him he must not kill himself as long as there is still
    hope, that there is a man who can help him. He asks who this man is.
    She responds "Quentin Collins.." and vanishes.
       David awakens, takes something from a steamy urn and goes
    up the stairs.
       In the antique shop, Megan, frantic that Philip has still not
    returns, picks up the phone and starts to call the police, but Philip
    suddenly comes throught the door and she hangs up. She asks where he's
    been all night. He tells her he ran into a man who told him he had an
    entire house of antiques he wanted to sell, that the man wanted him to
    come and appraise everything, that he did and lost track of time and
    was there all night.  She tells him she's glad he's back because she's
    had the strange feeling all night that someone was coming to kill her.
    He dismisses this as her imagination. He asks how the baby is. She tells
    him it hasn't gotten any better. He remarks that it's too bad she lost
    the book. She asks what he means by saying SHE lost it. He tells her it's
    her fault because she's the last one to handle it. He leaves, saying he's
    going to the store at the corner for a pack of cigarettes.
       Megan nervously awaits Philip's return. She tries to occupy herself
    with various things (knitting, the ledger) but finds that every little
    noise frightens her.  After a loud bang from upstairs frightens her,
    she calls the corner store to see what's keeping Philip.  They tell her
    he hasn't been there. Someone tries to come in through the locked
    front door...

       She asks who it is. It's Philip, who asks to be let in. She opens the
    door. Philip rushes in, grabs her by the throat and starts to strangle
    her, saying she must be punished for losing the book, that "There is no
    margin for error. Punishment is necessary."  Suddenly, a voice calls out
    "Stop! Punishment is no longer necessary !"  Philip stops. They look and
    see David standing on the stairs holding the baby. David tells them that
    the baby is sick and must be taken care of, and gives Megan the baby and
    a leather bag, saying it contains medicine which will cure it. Philip
    asks him where he got it, how he knows it will cure the baby.  David
    replies "I just know". Philip asks, "You're the one who took the book,
    aren't you?". David replies that he is. Philip asks for it back. David
    says no, saying that he is now the keeper of the book, that each of them
    has a job to do and that is his.  Megan takes the baby and the medicine
    upstairs.  Paul comes in through the front door and says he has a message
    to leave for Carolyn.  David identifies himself and says he'll take it
    to her at Collinwood for him. Recognizing him, Paul gives him the letter
    and tells him to promise to give it directly to her and not tell anyone
    else about it and leaves.
       Paul goes to the altar again. He wonders what it is and what compels
    him to keep coming here, then leaves.
       Chris goes to Collinwood and tells Julia what happened at the
    cottage. They look through and old photo album to see if they can
    identify the ghost. Chris identifies a picture of Jenny as the ghost, and
    wonders why she would come to help him.  Julia explains what happened
    with Jenny in the 19th century and explains that he's descended from
    her daughter, who was left to be raised by a 'Mrs. Fillmore'. Chris
    gasps,"Why my grandmother was named Leonora Fillmore !".  Julia explains
    that it was his great grandfather who was originally cursed to be a
    werewolf, that the curse affected all of Quentin's male relatives, and
    that's why he's cursed.  David comes into the room. Julia asks him if
    he'd be willing to take part in a seance to help Chris, warning that
    they'll be trying to contact Quentin. David agrees.
       In his room at the Collinsport Inn, Paul nervously waits for
    Carolyn to either call or come, wonder why she hasn't already, that
    David must have returned to Collinwood and delivered the letter by now.
    Sitting at the desk by the phone, he suddenly picks up a pen and circles
    the date Thursday, December 4, 1969 on the calendar. He wonders
    "Why did I do THAT ?".
       At the antique shop, Megan comes back downstairs alone. Philip asks
    how the baby is. Megan replies that it's OK, that the medicine seems
    to have worked.  Philip apoligizes for trying to kill her earlier. She
    tells him she understands.  Paul shows up and asks if David has left to
    deliver the letter yet. They tell him David left a few minutes after he
    did, and should have gotten back to Collinwood a long time ago. But they
    tell him someone did come and leave a message for him, and give him an
    envelope. Paul opens it and is shocked to find that it contains the
    message "Payment Due, 4 December 1969"*. He asks who left the message.
    Philip replies that it was a man. Paul asks him to describe the man, but
    Philip replies that he was busy with the ledger at the time and just
    took the letter without taking a good look at him. Paul then asks Megan
    to describe him, but she replies that she was upstairs at the time and
    didn't see him at all.
      At Collinwood, Chris, Julia and David hold the seance to contact
    Quentin. David is possessed, but it is by Jamison, not Quentin.
    Julia tells Jamison that they are trying to reach Quentin, not him,
    and asks why he came. Jamison replies that they cannot speak to the
    spirit of Quentin. Julia asks why not. Jamison replies that he doesn't
    know, all he knows is that they can't. David then comes out of the
    trance.  Chris remarks to Julia that the seance has been a failure, but
    Julia replies that that's not necessarily the case, that the fact that
    they could not contact Quentin's spirit might mean that Quentin is still
       Paul returns to his room. He wonders who could have left the note.
    He figures that if must be someone who knows that he and Carolyn use
    the antique shop to exchange messages, but who?. Suddenly, he gets
    the feeling that someone is lurking outside the door.  At first he is
    afraid, but then decides that he must open the door and find out who
    it is. As he reaches for the doorknob with his left hand, he is shocked
    to see that there is a tattoo of a four-headed snake on the inside
    of his wrist and gasps "The same mark that's on the altar!"  His shock
    indicates that it has just appeared, that it wasn't there before.
    He rubs at it but finds that it doesn't come off and wails, "NOOOOOOO..."

       At Collinwood, Carolyn reads the letter from Paul in which he says he
    like to talk to her.
       At the Collinsport Inn, Paul frantically tries to wash the tattoo off,
    but finds that it will not come off.  Carolyn calls, apologizing for
    being so late, explaining that David had forgotten about the message
    and just gave it to her. Paul tells her he'd like her to come to the
    inn and see him.
      At Collinwood, Elizabeth comes down into the foyer, dressed to go out,
    and tells Carolyn that it's time for them to go to the committee meeting
    for the Collinsport Hospital. Carolyn tells her she has something she
    has to do and can't go. Elizabeth insists, saying it's important that
    they go to the meeting, but Carolyn says she can't.
      Carolyn goes to Paul's room at the inn. She finds Paul in a terribly
    paranoid state, convinced that someone is after him. He begs her to
    get him into Collinwood where he will be safe. She promises to do this.
    The door starts to open. Paul looks on fearfully. Elizabeth, who has
    followed Carolyn, comes in and gasps "Paul!".  She asks Carolyn to
    leave so they can speak privately. Carolyn refuses, but then Paul
    asks her to leave, and she does.  Paul tells Elizabeth that he's come
    back, that he's a changed man. She replies that she doesn't believe him
    and orders him to leave Collinsport, adding that if he doesn't, she'll
    make his stay here most unpleasant.  He gasps, "So you're responsible
    for what's been happening to me!", but then realizes that that's
    impossible because she's just learned that he's here.  She tells him
    there's a train leaving at 11:00 and suggests that he be on it, warning
    that if he isn't, she'll make some telephone calls and he'll find that
    he's suddenly not welcome in Collinsport, that for example, he'll find
    that he's no longer welcome as a guest at the Inn.
      It is past 11:00. Paul has not left. He is at the Blue Whale, drinking.
    He notices a sailor staring at him and wonders if he's one of 'them',
    then wonders who 'they' are. He demands to know why the sailor is staring
    at him. The sailor responds that he just noticed he was a little
    depressed looking and wanted to buy him a drink.  Paul shows him the
    tattoo and ask "Are you one of them? Do you know what this is?".
    The sailor answers that he's just a simple sailor, but that he's
    travelled in the east and does know what that is, that it's a "Naga",
    a creature without a soul and tells Paul that he might be able to help,
    that he might be able to tell him what to do about 'them'.
       At Collinwood, Elizabeth forbids Carolyn from seeing Paul. Carolyn
       Paul returns to his room at the Inn and draws a pentagram on the
    floor and puts some candles at the points.  He hears a voice saying
    "Payment is almost due.". He quickly enters the pentagram and the
    sits down in a chair he has placed there and voice stops. Relieved,
    he mutters, "I'm safe..".  But then he hears footsteps coming down
    the hall, then the doorknob starts to turn. Paul screams...

       But it's just Carolyn.  She notes that Paul's mental state has gotten
    even worse.  She notices the pentagram on the floor and tells him it's
    the same as the necklace Barnabas gave her. She takes it off and gives
    it to him, saying that if he really thinks the one on the floor will
    protect him from whatever he thinks is after him, so will this.
       At the old house, Julia tells Barnabas about Olivia Corey, saying
    that she thinks Quentin is still alive and she's working for him.
    She adds that they tried to contact Quentin's spirit in a seance but
    could not, and that this is further evidence that he may still be alive.
    Julia is shocked that Barnabas still shows no interest in this
    whatsoever.  Carolyn comes and tells Julia she'd like to talk to her
    about her father. Barnabas leaves.
       At the Inn, the phone in Paul's room rings. He answers, and a
    voice tells him "Payment is due..".  He asks who it is, but the voice
    merely repeats "Payment is now due". Paul hangs up and leaves the phone
    off the hook, but it rings again. Terrified, Paul runs out of the room.
       Carolyn returns to the Inn, but finds that Paul is not there and
    the phone is off the hook.
       Paul arrives at Collinwood and asks Julia, who answers the door,
    to see Carolyn. Julia answers that Carolyn is not here, the she went
    to see HIM.  She tells him that Carolyn had told her about his mental
    state, and tells him she can help him. He replies that he doesn't need
    her help, that he has something that will help him, and pulls out the
    chain holding the pentagram. He is shocked to see that the pentagram
    has disappeared, that the chain is empty. The phone rings. Julia answers
    says "It's for you" and hands the phone to Paul. He eagerly takes it,
    thinking it's Carolyn, but the voice says "We are watching you and are
    are waiting.. Payment is now due..". He hangs up.  The phone rings again.
    Paul tells Julia not to answer it and runs out the door.
      Paul returns to his room at the Inn. The phone rings, and he answers.
    A voice says "You have come back to pay". Paul asks what he owes, but
    the voice merely replies,"You know" and hangs up.  The phone rings again,
    but Paul does not answer.
      At Collinwood, Carolyn hangs up the phone. She tells Julia that
    she's let the phone ring for a long time, but no one has answered,
    that Paul does not appear to be at the Inn.
      Paul flees to the Blue Whale. He looks at his wrist and is surprised
    to see that the tattoo is gone. He sees a strange man sitting at one
    of the tables. The man beckons for him to come over. When he does,
    the man introduces himself as Barnabas Collins. Barnabas asks, "You
    really don't know what you owe ?". Paul replies that he does not.
    Barnabas asks him if he recall the day he left Collinsport 20 years
    ago and he will know what he owes. Paul goes over the event of that
    day, but can remember nothing.  Barnabas guides him, and ask him if
    he had gone to the Blue Whale, if anything strange happened there.
    Paul recall that he did have a conversation with a strange man
    and has a flashback...
      Twenty years ago, Paul is at the bar drinking. A jolly man next
    to him is drinking and singing. When he stops singing, he looks at
    Paul and tells him he looks rather depressed. Paul replies that he
    is, that he's rather down on his luck.  The man, who says, his name is
    "Strack",  replies that maybe he can help, and asks what he'd be willing
    to do to change his luck. Paul replies that he'd do anything to change
    his luck. The man asks what he'd want. Paul replies that he'd like
    success and money for the rest of his life. The man replies that a wish
    like that is too much, that there has to be some limit. Paul says
    "Then success and money for 20 years". The man asks what he'd give in
    return for this. Paul replies, "The most precious thing I have, payable
    in 20 years". The man says "Done !" and asks him to shake hands on it.
    Paul, thinking that the man is drunk and that this is just a game, does.
    He then laughs and says "You should be glad this is just a game. Otherwise,
    you would have made a bad deal. Notice that I said I would give you the
    most precious thing I HAVE, not what I WILL have, and right now I have
    absoulutely nothing of any value at all.". The man laughs..
      Barnabas asks, "When was this?".  Paul replies, "December 1949" and
    realizes that it was exactly 20 years ago. Barnabas asks how things have
    gone for him in the last 20 years. Paul replies that he's had great
    success and made a lot of money.  Barnabas replies that his 20 years are
    up, that they've fufilled their part of the bargain, that he must now
    fufill his, and that they arranged for him to come back and make his
    payment.  Paul wonders what they could possibly want, what he had 20
    years ago that was of any value and asks Barnabas if they want his
    soul. Barnabas replies that that's not what they want. Paul asks what,
    then?. Carolyn comes into the Blue Whale, sees her father, rushes to
    him and hugs him, asking, "Is everything all right now?"  Barnabas
    chimes in, "Yes, now that you're here.  You're your father's most
    precious possession, you know".  A look of shock comes onto Paul's face...

       Paul gets upset and gets up to leave. Carolyn asks, "What's
    wrong? You two seement to be having go much fun when I came in."
    Paul remarks, "That's how it all started, with a funny conversation
    in this bar..". Roger comes in through the door and glares at Paul.
    Paul and Carolyn glare back and leave.  Roger goes to the table and
    remonstrates Barnabas for being part of this meeting.  Barnabas lies
    that he just came in for a drink and happened on the meeting.
       Paul and Carolyn go back to his room at the Inn.  She tries to
    get him to tell her what's wrong and how she could help, but doesn't
    get much out of him exept that he seems to think someone is after him
    and that he thinks she's in trouble too and wants her to leave town
    with him. She refuses, saying she thinks he's sick and it would be
    best for him to stay here.
       Roger confronts Carolyn when she returns to Collinwood.  He tells
    her that Paul cannot be trusted.  She refuses to believe him.   He
    tells her he'll prove it to her and gives her a check for $5000.
    (Probably worth about $30,000 in 1994 dollars). She asks, "So you're
    going to give him $5000 to leave ?". "No", he replies, "He's just here
    for money anyway. Give him the money and you won't even have to ask
    him to leave, there won't be anything in the world that will keep him
       Barnabas goes to the shop tho check on the baby.  Megan remarks that
    she wishes it could remain a baby forever, but Barnabas tells her that
    she knows that that's impossible.  Carolyn comes in for work. Megan leaves,
    saying that now that Caroyln's here, she can go and run a few errands.
    Carolyn apologizes to Barnabas for her father's odd behavior at the
    bar, explaining that he's not feeling well, that he seems to think
    someone's after him and even tried to get her to leve town with him.
       Paul is in his room asleep.  Barnabas comes in and he awakens. Paul
    tries to back out of the deal, saying he didn't know what was involved
    when he made it.  Barnabas tells him that that's impossible.  He tells
    him he should be happy for Carolyn, that she's going to receive a great
    honor. Paul pulls a gun from the dresser draw and pulls the trigger.
    Barnabas laughs and tells him they knew all about the gun and took all
    the bullets out, that he'd better not try anything because they know
    everything he's going to do even before he does it.  He tells him they
    know about his trying to get Carolyn to leave town and not to continue
       At the shop, Megan brings the baby up to its room.  The phone rings
    downstairs and Carolyn answers it.  It's Philip asking for Megan.
    Carolyn takes down the number and tells him she'll go find Megan and
    have her call back.  She goes upstairs and hears heavy monstrous
    breathing sounds coming from the baby's room.  She reaches out to open
    the door...

       But before she can open it, Megan comes out and closes the door.
    The sounds stop.  Megan angrily asks her what's she's doing up here.
    Carolyn tells her that Philip called. Carolyn asks what the sound was.
    Megan lies that it's the radiator...
       They go back downstairs. Megan apologizes for yelling at her, saying
    she was upset she had gone upstairs because the baby had just gone to
    sleep and she didn't want it disturbed.  Megan calls the number but finds
    it busy.  They see a man looking through the shop window, but when
    Carolyn walks up to the window to get a look, he quickly leaves..
       At Collinwood, David is in bed asleep. Suddenly, he sits up, awake.
    He looks on his desk and sees the book open by itself. He goes and looks
    and finds that it has opened to a passage which he reads aloud, "And the
    day will come when he must be dressed in new garb...".  There's a knock
    at the door. He quickly hides the book and opens it. It's Elizabeth.
    She tells him she thought she heard talking in here. He replies that it's
    just him reading some schoolwork.  She asks if she can check it. He replies
    that he'd rather not let her see it until he's finished it. She remarks
    that it seems strangely cold in here and asks if he has a window open.
    Apparently wanting to get rid of her, he mentions that he's heard that
    her husband is back in town. Shocked, she asks how he knows that. "Oh,",
    he says, "I hear things..".  She angrily says, "We've got to see about
    getting you some friends your own age" and stomps out.  David goes to the
    bureau, takes out his wallet and takes some money out. Seeing that there
    isn't enough, he lifts his matress and takes some more money from there.
       Elizabeth gets a call from Paul.  She tells him she doesn't want to
    talk to him, but he tells her she'd better come to see him at the Inn
    if she doesn't want to lose Carolyn...
       Carolyn walks into the drawing room and finds David in there reading
    a newspaper, an unusual act for him.  She notices that he's reading
    and advertisement for Brewster's Department store and asks him what's
    so interesting.  He tells her he's just getting some ideas for Christmas
    gifts and remarks that they're going to be open nights until then.  She
    asks, "I hope you're not planning to go now, at night. I won't let you."
    He answers, "Of course not.".  But after Carolyn leaves and goes upstairs,
    he sneaks out the front door...
       The mysterious man sneaks into Collinwood and looks around. He
    straightens the portrait of Barnabas and then goes into the drawing
    room.  Carolyn comes back down and the man, hearing her, quickly hides
    behind the curtains.  Carolyn calls, "David?" and , receiving no answer,
    assumes that he's gone up to bed, shuts off the lights and goes back
    upstairs. The man comes out from behind the curtains and leaves.
       At the Inn,  Paul tells Elizabeth that Carolyn's in danger and she
    must take her away from Collinwood for a long time, perhaps on
    a round the world cruise, without telling anyone where they're going.
    She asks why. At first, he is reluctant to tell her, but when she makes
    it clear that she thinks he's being ridiculous and has no intention of
    doing as he asks unless he can give her a good explanation, he begins
    to tell her. But then the phone rings and, realizing that it's the
    Leviathans, he stops talking and just stares at it.  After a few rings,
    Elizabeth asks, "We'll, aren't you going answer ". He continues to
    stare at it fearfully.  Finally, Elizabeth, exasperated, says,"Well, if
    you're not going to answer it, I will", and does.  She asks who it is,
    but only hears breathing, then the click of the other party hanging
    up.  She tells Paul, "I knew you were involved in something devious"
    and leaves angrily.
       As she is leaving the Inn, Elizabeth sees David going into the antique
    shop carrying a box and wonders what he's doing out this time of night.
    She goes into the antique shop and, finding Megan there, asks where David
    is, saying she saw him come in . Megan replies that she must be mistaken,
    that David'd not here.  Elizabeth notices a Brewster's box on the table
    and says that's what she saw David carrying.  Megan tells her that the
    box is hers, that she bought it this afternoon.  Elizabeth insists on
    searching the shop for David, saying she's sure she saw him coming in
    here, that perhaps he snuck in without her seeing and is hiding somewhere.
    Elizabeth starts up the stairs. Megan tries to stop her, but is
       Upstairs, David is in the baby's room. He tells the baby that he's
    gotten him what he needs.  Suddenly, he hears Elizabeth outside calling,
    "David ? Are you up here ?"

       Outside door of the baby's room, Elizabeth hears the loud breathing
    noise and asks Megan what it is. The noise stops. Megan tells Elizbeth
    that the noise is just the radiator.  Eliabeth tells Megan she wants to
    check inside the room to see if David is there.  Megan tells her she
    can't because the baby is sleeping. Elizabeth insists, saying that it's
    very important that she find David and promises that be very quiet and
    starts to open the door. Suddenly, there's a loud crash from downstairs
    and they both rush to see what it is.  They find that the desk has been
    pushed over. Elizabeth decides that David must have been hiding under
    it and pushed it over while escaping and leaves.  David comes back
    downstairs.  Megan tells him how relieved she is, that she didn't know
    what to do.  David replies that neither did he, but that 'someone' had
    helped them
       Julia is at Olivia's place.  Olivia explains to her that she's
    interested in the Tate picture because she's organizing a showing of
    Tate's work in New York, that she's interested in him because he had
    painted so many pictures of her grandmother.  She remarks on the tragedy
    of Charles Delaware Tate. Julia, puzzled, asks what tragedy she's talking
    about.  Olivia replies that she finds it tragic that he was so talented
    and famous at the turn of the century, but that fashions changed and
    he became almost completely forgotten, so forgotten that nothing is
    known of what happened to him, even if he's still alive or not.
    She explains that she's having the exhibition to try to rekindle interest
    in his work. She tells Julia that if she won't sell the painting, then
    a photograph will have to do and asks her if she'll allow her to borrow
    it to do that. Julia tells her, "I'll have my cheuffeur bring it over
    later".  After Julia leaves, a Japanese man comes into the room. Olivia,
    referring to him as 'Mr. Nakamura', tells him everything is going
    according to plan and to make the arrangements. Nakamura picks up the
    phone and makes a call.
       At Collinwood, Chris asks Julia why she wants him to pose as her
    cheuffeur. She tells him she finds this Olivia Corey suspicious, that
    she has some secret. She shows him an old letter to Quentin from
    Amanda Harris and tells him she thinks Olivia is Amanda.  Chris thinks
    she's being ridiculous but agrees to go along.
       Julia tells Elizabeth that she's gotten very interested in old
    portraits and asks her if there are any more than what is on the the
    walls. Elizabeth replies that there are. Julia asks if she'd mind if
    she looks around for them. Elizabeth tells her OK.
       Chris, posing as cheuffeur, takes the picture to Olivia.  She tells
    him to come pick it up later, but he replies that he can't, that he
    was instructed to wait here for it.  Nakamura comes into the room.
    Olivia explains that he's her photographer and gives the picture to
    him.  Nakamura takes it to another room and closes the door.  Olivia
    tells Chris she'll go make some tea.  While she's away, Chris searches
    around the room, but in the limited time he has, doesn't seem to find
    what he's looking for. Olivia returns with the tea.
        David is in his room. Liz comes in and asks if he had gone to
    town. He tells her he did not. She tells him she came and looked here
    earlier and he wasn't here. He replies that he was in the kitchen
    getting a glass of milk.
        Chris gets impatient and asks what's taking Nakamura so long.
    Olivia tries to explain that he's an artist, not just a simple
    photographer and takes a while, but Chris barges into the room where
    Nakamura went and finds photographic equipment, but no Nakamura and
    no painting. He angrily demands to know where Nakamura went with the
    painting. Olivia replies that she doesn't know, that she's as puzzled
    as he is. Nakamura returns, holding the painting. He explains that he
    found that his camera was broken and he had to take it into town to
    have it photographed. Chris apologizes for his anger and asks Olivia
    for an autograph if she she'll forgive him. She replies she'd be
    glad to. He tells her what to write. As she is writing it, she
    remarks that it's rather long for an autograph. After Chris leaves,
    Olivia asks Nakamura, "How long will it take ?". He replies that he
    was told it would take about an hour.
       Chris returns to Collinwood and gives the autograph to Julia.
    She compares it to the old letter and finds that they look like the
    same handwriting, but tells Chris she's going to take it to Professor
    Stokes, who's and expert on handwriting, to make sure.
       Nakamura returns to Olivia's place and hands her some X-rays and
    tells her they show that there is another picture under the painting,
    that they show that it's clearly a portrait, but are not clear enough
    to show who. Olivia tells Nakamura to go to the next step in the plan..

      Elizabeth goes to the antique shop and finds Carolyn there. She tells
    her she'd like to speak to Megan. Carolyn tells her the Todds aren't
    there.  Elizabeth tells Carolyn that she finds this a strange place, that
    she's not sure she wants her working there anymore and explains that
    she saw David coming in here last night but couldn't find him when she
    came in, that Megan claims to have been upstairs and did not see him,
    but that she does not believe her because she was already down here
    when she entered the shop and anyway, no one would leave so many
    valuable things unattended.  Carolyn explains that Megan had told her
    that David had come yesterday to return the stolen book, that Megan had
    probably lied to protect him.  She points to an old book on a table.
    After Elizabeth leaves, the unknown man comes into the shop. Carolyn
    shows him the shop.
       David, in his room, reads from the real book, "The enemy will be
    overcome one by one". Elizabeth comes in and tells him she knows he
    went and returned the book last night.  She asks him what he was doing
    at Brewster's, saying she knows he was in there because she talked to
    a saleslady who said he was.  David tells her he was at Brewster's,
    but it was during the afternoon, that the saleslady, well on in years,
    probably just got confused. Elizabeth sees the book on the table, picks
    it up and asks what it is, noting that he could't possibly be reading
    it because it isn't in English.  He replies that he just likes to look
    at the pictures. She asks him where he got it.  He lies that he found
    it in the house somewhere but doesn't remember exactly where. She doesn't
    believe him and takes the book, saying she's going to take it to the
    Todds to see if he stole it too, but they didn't notice. She tells him
    he's grounded until further notice.
       Barnabas goes to the antique shop.  Carolyn is beaming, and reads
    a love poem from an old book.  Barnabas asks what's caused her good
    mood. She tells him she met a wonderful man today, that he came into
    the shop to shop, and says she thinks she's in love.  She tells him
    he was absolutely right that she'd find someone else soon.  Barnabas
    asks her if the man feels the same way about her.  She replies that
    she thinks he does, that he told her he'd be back at 10 oclock
    tonight to pick her up.
       Barnabas goes to Collinwood and finds David depressed and asks him
    what's wrong.
       Later, Barnabas finds Elizabeth in the drawing room.  Elizabeth shows
    him the book and says she thinks David stole it.  Barnabas asks her if
    she knows what it is. She replies that she does not, that she doesn't
    even know what language it's in, but that there seem to be many repeated
    'sentences' and that she thinks it might be some sort of religious book,
    that the repeated sentences might be parts of chants.  She tells him she's
    going to take it to the Todds and see if David stole it from there.
    Barnabas tells her she's looking very tired and offers to take it for
    her. She gladly accepts and offers him a sherry.  He declines. She
    starts to pour one for herself. He tells her he doesn't think that
    that's a very good idea, that alcohol doesn't really help you relax
    and suggests that she go and lie down.  She tells him she'll try that
    and goes upstairs.  Barnabas, in a sinister voice, remarks "and the
    enemy will be overcome, one by one.."
       Elizabeth has a weird dream in which she's at a amusement park.
    David, as a barker, asks her to come into the hall of mirrors. She
    asks what she'll see in there. He tells her she'll see all the people
    that she is.  She looks in the first mirror and sees just herself.
    The second mirrors just shows her reflection too. But the third mirror
    shows nothing.  She asks David what's going on. He tells her to look
    harder. She does, and Barnabas' reflection appears. Delighted, Elizabeth
    asks how the trick is done.
       A man is walking across the street to the antique shop.  Suddenly,
    there is the screech of brakes and a car hits him.  Carolyn rushes out
    to check. Barnabas runs from the car and exclaims, "He was in the
    middle of the street. I couldn't stop!".  He turns the man, who is
    face down, over.  Carolyn gasps, 'Oh No! It's the man who was coming
    to meet me!".

       Carolyn goes into the antique shop and calls an ambulance.
       At Collinwood, Julia hands an envelope to Chris and tells him to
    deliver it to Professor Stokes, explaining that it contains the
    letter written in 1897 by Amanda Harris and Olivia's autograph.
    After Chris leaves, Julia gets a call from Carolyn telling her that
    there's been an accident and asking her to come to the hospital.
       Barnabas and Carolyn are at the hospital, waiting outside a
    room.  Carolyn tells Barnabas that the man's name is Grant Douglas.
    Julia comes.  She and Carolyn go into the room to examine the man.
    Julia sees him and is stunned.  She asks what the man's name is.
    Carolyn tells her that his name is Grant Douglas and that his ID
    said he lived in Portland, Maine.  Julia asks why Barnabas is here.
    Carolyn replies that it was Barnabas who hit him.  Julia goes
    outside and asks why he didn't call her, that it's obviously Quentin.
    Barnabas replies that while the man resembles Quentin somewhat, it
    isn't, that her belief that it is is just a product of wishful thinking.
       Megan is at the antique shop. She takes out the box from Brewsters'
    which David gave her and opens it. She take out the contents, a shirt
    and a pair of pants which appear to be sized for a boy of about 6.
    The lights go out and she hears a voice telling her "I am coming".
    She falls asleep and has a dream in which Barnabas comes to her and tells
    her that there will be a change soon and that she will have to prepare
    the baby for it. She disappointedly tells him she has become quite
    attached to the baby, but he replies that that can't be helped. He tells
    her to use Philip's brother as an explanation this time.  He tells her
    that once again she will remember only what must be done but will not
    remember that it was he who came to her.
       Chris comes to the hospital to meet Julia, who has called him to
    come there.  She takes him into the hotel room and tells him that
    that's Quentin. Puzzled, he asks her how it can be, saying that
    a man who lived 70 years ago would have to be quite old by now, but
    this man is quite young. Julia tells her she can't explain right now,
    but that it is possible.
       Carolyn goes to the antique shop to work and tells Megan about the
    accident, explaining that she may have to leave and go back to the
    hospital if Julia calls.  She finds an old toy and tells Megan that maybe
    they shouldn't sell it, saying that it would be a good toy for the baby.
    Megan gets very sad. Carolyn asks her what's wrong, but Megan won't tell
       Chris asks what the man's ID says. Julia explains that it says he's
    Grant Douglas of Portland, Maine, but that she did some checking and
    found that she has reason to think that it is a false name because
    she did some checking and found that although there are records of a man
    named Grand Douglas living in Portland, there are no records of where
    he lived before that and there are no records of his having ever held
    a job anywhere (how she discovered all this is not explained.).  Chris
    remarks that she's been quite thorough. Barnabas appears at the door
    and remarks, almost angrily, "Yes she has, hasn't she?" and then offers
    his opinion that it isn't Quentin and that she's deluding herself if
    she thinks it is.
       Later, Julia is in the room alone with the man.  The man comes out of
    the coma and Julia asks him, "Quentin? That is you, isn't it?"
       Carolyn finds that Megan far happier than she was before and
    remarks on it.  Megan replies that it's something far greater that
    happiness that she and Philip have found, and hopes that she, Carolyn,
    finds it too. While they are both working unpacking some 'new' antiques,
    Carolyn hears a hammering sound upstairs and asks Megan what it is.
    Megan replies that she doesn't know.  They continue to unpack.  The
    hammering sound stops. A child's inflated toy ball, about the size of
    a softball, comes bouncing down the stairs. Carolyn remarks that that's
    what must have been causing the hammering sound upstairs then, puzzled,
    asks who it belongs to, that it surely couldn't be the baby's.  A
    boy who appears to be about 6 years old comes down the stairs.  Megan
    remarks, "There he is!  There's my little darling!". The boy is wearing
    the clothing purchased by David...

       Megan explains to Carolyn that the boy's name is Alexander and that
    he's Philip's nephew, that her sister had returned from her vacation
    and Philip had returned the baby to her and on the way went to his
    brother's house and picked up Alexander, who had wanted to see their
    new shop, to stay for awhile.  Carolyn tells Megan she must have known
    that the hammering sound upstairs was caused by Alexander playing with
    the ball and asks why she said she didn't.  Megan replies that of course
    she knew, but that she wanted to surprise her. Alexander sees an African
    style mask in the crate of new antiques and puts it on. Carolyn feigns
    fear and runs from him. He playfully chases her. There's a call from
    Julia for Carolyn. Julia tells Carolyn that the man regained consciousness
    briefly, but lapsed back into the coma without saying anything. Carolyn
    excuses herself and leaves. Alexander tells Megan he likes
    Carolyn very much. She replies that they knew he would. Megan tells
    Alexander she has to go upstairs for a minute.  He tells her that's
    OK, he'll draw for awhile. He takes out a pad and starts to draw.
    Paul comes and asks for Carolyn.  The boy replies that Carolyn was here
    but left, and that Megan is upstairs.  Paul decides to wait for Megan to
    find out where Carolyn is. While waiting, he makes small talk with the
    boy and asks him what he's doing. The boy replies that he's drawing.
    Paul asks "What are you drawing?", and walks up to him to see, but
    the Alexander slams the pad shut and refuses to let him see.  Megan
    comes back down and tells Paul Carolyn will be back soon.  Paul replies
    that he'll wait here for her.  The boy walks up to a calendar hanging on
    the wall, tears off the page for December 1969 and circles the date
    Thursday, January 15, 1970.  Paul, obviously seeing similarities between
    this and his circling of December 4, is startled and asks "Why did you
    do THAT?". Alexander replies that that's his birthday and asks if he
    wants to come, that Carolyn will be there.  Paul, paranoid but with
    reason, thinks to himself that the woman and the boy are in league
    with Barnabas against him.  Paul tells Megan he has changed his mind
    about waiting here.  Barnabas comes. He sees Paul and remarks that
    everyting is going splendidly.  Paul, terrified, brushes past him and
       Paul returns to his room at the inn and finds to his shock that
    the date January 15, 1970 is circled on the hotel room calender.  He
    recalls what Alexander said about "Carolyn will be there..". Carolyn
    comes.  Paul tells her that they MUST leave Collinsport as soon as
    possible.  She tells him she has something that could help and gives
    him the check from Edward.  Seeing the signature, he tells her he knows
    Edward is trying to drive a wedge between them by showing he's only
    interested in money and tears it up. Carolyn embraces him.
       { Barnabas + Julia, Carolyn ? }
       Later, Paul calls Carolyn and tells her it will be on the 10:05
    to Boston and tells her to get ready.
       At the antique shop, Megan tells Alexander it's time for him to go
    up to bed. He tells her he doesn't want to, that he's afraid to go up
    there. She asks why, but he tells her he doesn't know...
       Paul finishes packing. Elizabeth comes and demands to know where
    Carolyn is, that she knows there's something going on because she checked
    her room and found that all her clothes are gone. Paul replies that it's
    important that they leave because he and Carolyn are in danger, that
    everyone in the Collins famile is in danger because the leader of the
    people who are after him are living in their midst, that it's Barnabas.
    Elizabeth replies that she thought he was crazy until he mentioned
    Barnabas, that she's noticed a marked change in Barnabas since he returned
    and finds his story believable.  She tells him he is welcome to take
    refuge at Collinwood. He leaves to get Carolyn at the train station.
    Elizabeth picks up the phone and makes a call to COLLINWOOD 6817.
    At the antique shop, the phone rings and Alexander answers. He gives the
    phone to Barnabas.  Elizabeth tells Barnabas that she's fixed everything
    and that everything's back on schedule...

       Paul goes to the train station and tells Carolyn they're not going
    because Elizabeth is letting him stay at Collinwood.  Carolyn is shocked.
       Barnabas, at the hospital, reaches out to strangle the man, but he
    seems to still have some conscience left and thinks to himself,"No.
    You saved my life once when Edward locked me in the cell to await the
    dawn. I cannot kill you. " and stops.
       Elizabeth, Carolyn and Paul return to Collinwood.  Elizabeth and
    Paul go into the drawing room and close the doors to talk.  Paul starts
    to consider what his first step will be, but Elizabeth replies that
    they're not going to do anything. She tells him she doesn't believe his
    paranoid story and that the real reason she's letting him stay at
    Collinwood is because she think he's sick and wants to help him.
    Paul, furious, insists that he's not, that there's some sort of
    conspiracy going on, that the couple who owns the antique shop are
    part of it, as well as the child living there, that Barnabas is the
    leader. Julia, who's just come into Collinwood, is outside listening
    through the door.  Paul, either sensing something or seeing the crack
    in the door obstructed, opens the door, pulls her in, accuses her of
    being part of the conspiracy. Elizabeth tells him to let her go, saying
    she trusts Julia.  Julia apologizes, saying she heard shouting and just
    wondered what was wrong. Carolyn comes and says she wants to speak to
      At the hospital, Grant regains consciousness.  Barnabas remarks to
    him, "Quentin Collins. I knew we'd meet again". The man just stares
    at him blankly.
      Carolyn and Julia go to the hospital.  Barnabas comes out of Grant's
    room.  Julia asks him what he's doing in there. Barnabas replies that
    he felt bad about hitting the man. Julia asks how the man is. Barnabas
    replies that he's much better. They go in. The man is conscious.  Carolyn
    exclaims, "Oh Grant. I'm glad you're better". The man replies "Grant?
    Why do you call me that?".  Julia asks if he recognizes her.  He asks
    why he should recognize her. She just replies that she's the doctor who's
    been treating him.
      Barnabas takes Julia outside and reprimands her for asking the man if
    he recognized her, saying it would make Carolyn suspicious. Barnabas
    leaves, and Julia goes back into the room.  Carolyn tells the man about
    their meeting at the antique shop. He tells her he doesn't remember
    anything prior to waking up in the hospital.  They tell him his ID
    said his name was 'Grant Douglas' and that he lives in Portand, Maine,
    but that they know little about him beyond that.  Grant asks why the
    other man called him "Quentin Collins". A strange look comes across
    Carolyn's face and the man asks him what's wrong.  Carolyn tells him
    that Quentin Collins lived almost 100 years ago.  The man replies,
    "Well, I guess I can't be Quentin Collns, then".
       Julia goes to Collinwood and tell Paul she believes him and asks
    him what he knows.
       Elizabeth tells Barnabas that something must be done about Paul.
    Barnabas agrees, but tells her not to do anything, that he'll be
    arranging for someone to take care of Paul..

      Elizabeth brings Alexander to Collinwood.  Paul sees Alexander,
    and Elizabeth introduces them, saying Alexander has come here to play
    with David today . Alexander replies that he already knows Paul
    that he's seen him at the antique shop.  Elizabeth gives Alexander
    directions to David's room and tells him to go there. Alexander leaves.
    Paul tells Elizabeth that she shouldn't have let Alexander come here
    because he's part of the conspiracy.  Elizabeth replies that he's
    REALLY being ridiculous now....
      Upstairs in David's room,  David and Alexander are playing with
    David's slot car set.  Maggie, who's in there with them, tells them
    it's almost time for lunch and she'll go and have some hamburgers
    made for them.  After Maggie leaves, David asks Alexander what he
    plans to do.  Alexander asks David to get some pictures of Carolyn
    showing her as she was growing up.  David asks him what Carolyn has
    to do with all this.  Alexander reprimands David for having the nerve
    to question him. David apologizes and leaves to find the pictures.
    Elizabeth comes in and tells Alexander to be careful because Paul
    suspects him...
      Paul, downstairs, sees Maggie going to the kitchen and asks her
    to step into the drawing room for a minute. In the drawing room, he
    tells her the boy upstairs is not a normal boy, that he's part of a
    conspiracy that also involves the Todds and Barnabas. He asks her
    to help him by finding out all she can about the boy and the Todds,
    and to try to keep a tab on what Barnabas does. He explains that
    she can do this whereas he cannot because they don't suspect that
    she knows anything. Suddenly, Paul goes over and opens the drawing
    room doors and pulls Alexander, who's been eavesdropping, into the
    room and shakes him, asking him what he's doing. Elizabeth comes in
    and forces Paul to stop. She takes a crying Alexander out into the
    foyer to comfort him. Maggie tries to calm Paul down by shutting the
    drawing room doors and telling him that she believes him and asking
    him to go over what he wants her to do again.
      Elizabeth takes the crying Alexander over to the bench next to the
    stairs and comforts him.  David comes down, sees this and asks if he's
    OK. Elizabeth replies that he is and says that it's her fault, that
    she should have been more careful.  Alexander, seeing that David is
    carrying a photo album, stops crying , takes it and starts to look
    through it.
      Maggie promises Paul that she'll do everything she can.  David comes
    into the drawing room and tells Paul he'd like to show him some pictures
    of Carolyn growing up because he wasn't here to see her. Maggie leaves.
    David shows Paul the photos of Carolyn.  Paul has a strange reaction
    to one of her when she was about eight. David asks her if that's Carolyn
    about the time he left.  Paul pauses strangely for a long time before
    saying no.
      Outside, Elizabeth tells Maggie Paul is ill and is having paranoid
    delusions and tells her she shouldn't believe what he says. Maggie
    replies that she found what he was saying ridiculous and was just
    humoring him because she didn't know what else to do.
      Later, Roger returns to Collinwood and sees David and Alexander
    in the foyer. David introduces Alexander, saying he's come here to
    play today. Roger remarks that he's glad to be back because two days
    in Bangor seems like forever. He tells David he's got a gift for him,
    the transistor radio he's been wanting.  He gives David a white
    transistor radio, saying it's the best one on the market and leaves,
    saying he's got to go to the study to look over his mail.  Alexander
    tells David he likes the radio and wants it and tells him to give it
    to him. David obediently does, and Alexander beams, "I'm glad they sent
    me you!". David and Alexander both leave the foyer, apparently going
    to the kitchen. Unbeknownst to them, Maggie sees all this from above
    on the stair landing. She thinks to herself that that's VERY unlike David
    to give Alexander the radio and that maybe there is something strange
    going on, that what Paul told her isn't so ridiculous after all...
       Roger comes back into the foyer and sees Maggie there.  He asks her
    if Elizabeth is home. Maggie replies that she is. Suddenly, Roger bellows
    out "What's HE doing here?!".  Coming down the stairs is Paul. Roger
    asks Maggie to leave so they can speak in private.  She does. Roger
    asks Paul what he's doing here.  Paul replies that Elizabeth invited him.
    Elizabeth walks into the foyer and says "Indeed I did, Roger".  Paul
    leaves, saying he sees an argument coming and wants to leave them to
    argue alone. He adds, "In view of past history, I know who's going to
    win, anyway" and goes upstairs.
       Roger and Elizabeth argue about Paul.
       Paul goes up to his room and hears a giggling sound in there. He finds
    Alexander hiding behind a chair.  Alexander tells him he's playing hide
    and seek with David. Saying to Paul that now he's back, he'd better find
    another hiding place and starts to run off. Paul, not believing him,
    tries to grab him, but misses. Alexander runs out into the hallway and
    hides behind the curtains of the window in the hallway. Paul comes out
    of his room and looks for Alexander, but does not see him. Just as he
    turns and is about to go back into his room, he hears loud breathing
    noises coming from behind the curtain.  He goes and pulls them open..

       He is surprised to find not Alexander, but a little blond girl in
    pigtails. He asks her who she is, but she only says "I hate you for
    going away!" and runs away and down the stairs.  Paul follows, but
    when he gets down to the foyer, he finds only Julia there. He asks her
    if she saw which way the little girl went, but Julia tells him she saw
    no little girl come down the stairs.  He then asks if she saw Alexander
    come down. Julia tells him she doesn't know who Alexander is, but that
    no one came down the stairs.  Julia asks if the little girl he's talking
    about is Amy. He says no.
       Chris goes to Amanda's room, having received a phone call from her.
    She tells him she's been trying to reach Julia, but that she never
    seems to be at Collinwood. Chris explains that she's been spending most
    of her time at the hospital lately, that she's been treating a man with
    total amnesia named Grant Douglas.  Amanda tells him that the reason
    she wanted to reach Julia so badly is that 'Montine', the man who's
    organizing the exhibition is coming to town and she wants to borrow
    the painting again to show him.
       Julia is at the hospital, trying to help Grant regain his memory.
    She empties the contents of a manila envelope onto a table, saying
    that they were the contents of his pockets. Grant examines the objects:
    a rent receipt for $55, a matchbook from a bar called the "High Hat
    Lounge", a key to a locker of the type found in airports, train and bus
    stations and a wooden puzzle.  He looks at the rent receipt and remarks
    that he knows he's not a rich playboy, then reads the blurb on the
    matchbook and jokes, "It says when you go there you'll forget all
    your troubles.  That's nothing compared to what you forget when you
    come to Collinsport!"  However, none of the items stirs any memories.
    This not having worked, Julia suggests that they try hypnosis.
       Paul, having searched the house and not found the girl, stands on
    landing and decides that he must have imagined the whole thing.
    The girl comes in through the front doors. Paul runs down the
    stairs to her, but she exclaims, "I hate you for what you did!" and
    runs into the drawing room.  Paul follows, but when he gets into the
    drawing room, it is empty. There, he sees the photo album sitting on
    the coffee table. This strikes a memory, and he opens it and sees a
    picture of the blond girl. Below it is the inscription "CaroLyn, Age 8".
       Julia hypnotizes Grant and asks him who he is.  He replies that
    he doesn't know, but that he does know that he must leave town. Julia
    asks why. Grant Douglas  replies, "Because of HIM".  Julia asks
    "Who are you?  Who's the HE you must leave because of?". He answers
    cryptically, "Frederick Thorn!  It's all over!  It's finished!".  She
    asks him what he means, but he gives no more answers. She awakens him
    and tells him she didn't learn anything useful.
       Julia comes out of the hospital room and finds Chris outside waiting
    for her. He tells her that while he was in the hospital cafeteria he
    heard something very important, that two men in there were discussing
    a strange incident a few days ago where a man came in and had a painting
    X-rayed, that from the description of the man, it must have been Nakamura.
    He adds that Olivia told him she wanted the painting again, claiming that
    the man planning the exhibit wanted to see it.  They suspect the obvious:
    that Olivia had found something under the landscape.  Chris adds that
    Nakamura had had a photograph of the landscape taken, and that by now
    they have probably had a copy painted and obviously want to make a
    switch.  They decide to find out what's under the landscape..
       In the drawing room, Paul hears a slapping sound. He looks toward
    the direction from which it came and sees Carolyn age 8 picking up a
    book she had dropped. The book is a copy of "Black Beauty". He runs toward
    her, but once again she cries "I hate you for what you did!" and runs into
    the study and slams the door shut. Julia comes in through the front doors.
    Paul tells her that the girl he was talking about is in the study. But
    the study door opens and Alexander comes out.  Paul looks into the study
    and finds it empty. He grabs Alexander and demands "Where is she?
    Where is Carolyn?". Alexander replies that he was the only person in
    the study.  Julia, puzzled, asks Paul why he first asked about the little
    girl, then switched to asking about Carolyn.  Paul replies that the little
    girl IS Carolyn at the age of eight.  Julia thinks he's crazy. Paul
    leaves.  Julia asks Alexander what he was doing in the study. He tells
    her he was doing one of his favorite things, reading, and holds up a
    copy of 'Black Beauty'...
       Julia returns to the hospital and tells Grant that she's arranged
    a place for him to live.  He tells her that that's not necessary.
    Puzzled, Julia asks "Where will you stay, then?".  Olivia walks into
    the room and says, "With me, Dr. Hoffman, with me.."

       Grant is in with Olivia in her room at the Inn.  She stares at him.
    He asks why she is doing this.  She asks, "Don't you recognize me?"
    He replies, "No. Should I? Have we met before?". She answers, "Yes".
    He asks when this was. She replies " A long, long time ago..."
       At Collinwood, Elizabeth goes into the drawing room and tells Julia
    that Paul's condition seems to have worsened, that he's in his room
    claiming to have seen Carolyn at the age of eight wandering around the
    house. Julia tells her the delusion is probably a manifestation of his
    guilt at having abandoned her 20 years ago.  Chris comes, and Elizabeth
    goes upstairs.  Chris opens a manila envelope and shows Julia the
    X-ray he had made of the portrait.  They can see that there is definitely
    a portrait underneath, but can only see an outline and cannot tell
    who it is.  Julia calls Professor Stokes, who's busy comparing the
    handwriting samples, tells him she has a painting which appears to have
    been painted over another painting, and asks him if it's possible to
    remove the top painting without damaging the covered one. Stokes replies
    that it is, but that he doesn't know how to do it.  She asks if he knows
    anyone who does. He replies that he has a friend named Alsman at the
    university who does.  Julia asks him to contact him, that it's urgent
    she have this done as quickly as possible.
       Grant asks Olivia what she means. She tells him she can't tell him
    right now, that she might be wrong.  He tells her that if he doesn't
    know anything about himself, perhaps it would be better if they talk
    about her, and asks her about her background.  She tells him, "Well,
    I started out as a singer and dancer...". He interrupts her, saying
    the mention of 'singer' reminds him of something, a song. She asks
    him to hum the song, but the memory is fleeting and tells her he
    can no longer remember it.  Julia comes and asks Olivia why she took
    Grant.  Olivia asks Grant to step into the other room, saying she wants
    to speak to Julia alone. 
      Chris and Stokes are at Stoke's house, waiting for Alsman. He comes.
    He looks at the landscape and remarks that many Tate paintings are
    valuable, but not his landscapes, which are rather inferior. He adds,
    "But you have to give him credit for turning them out right up to the
    end". Chris asks, "The end?".  Alsman replies, "Yes. Charles Delaware
    Tate died about 10 years ago".
        Olivia tells Julia she thought she could help him because she
    thought she knew who he was, but is now not so sure.  Julia complains
    that she's not qualified to help the man.  Olivia derides Julia's
    belief that the man is Quentin Collins, asking, "When was Quentin
    Collins born?"  Julia replies, "1870".  Olivia remarks, "Now that would
    make him 99 years old.  Does that man look 99 years old to you?"  Olivia,
    possibly because of her failure to bring back his memory, agrees to a
    'truce',  deciding that it would be best for both of them to do what
    they can.  Olivia brings Grant back into the room.  Julia tells him
    she's going to try the 'association method' now and will take him
    somewhere for some 'associations'.
       Alsman starts to work on the painting. As he is doing this, Chris
    asks Stokes if he's reached any conclusions about the handwriting
    samples. Stokes replies that they are so similar, it would be difficult
    to believe that they could not have been written by the same person.
    Chris asks if that's what he wants him to tell Julia.  Stokes replies,
    "Not yet. Give me a couple more days to make sure".
       Julia brings Grant to Collinwood.  Grant looks around and remarks
    that it's a grand place, that he wishes he were a Collins and lived
    here.  He does not seem to recognize anything.  Julia asks him to
    come upstairs.  As she starts up the stairs, she realizes that Grant
    is not with her, and sees that he is in the foyer staring at the portrait
    of Barnabas.  She goes back down and asks him if that brings back any
    memories. He replies that it's the man who visited him in the hospital,
    and asks why he's dressed in such old-fashioned clothing in the picture.
    Julia explains that it's not the man who visited him in the hospital,
    that it's an ancestor of his who resembles him greatly. They both
    go upstairs.
       At Stokes', Chris is holding the picture. We do not see it.  He
    remarks "Julia will be surprised....". Stokes asks why she would be
    since she already knows there is a portrait underneath. Chris replies
    that it's not the fact that there's a portrait underneath that will
    surprise her, but whose portrait..".  The camera shows the painting.
    Alsman is not yet finished. Only the face is visible.  It is the
    face of Amanda Harris...
       Julia takes Grant up to Quentin's room, which is covered with dust
    and cobwebs.  Grant looks around for awhile, but tells her nothing in
    this room brings back any memories, that her 'association' idea has
    been a failure and they should leave. She tells him to wait, that
    there's one more thing she wants to try, and tells him to sit down.
    He does. She turns on the gramophone. It plays Quentin's theme. She
    tells him to listen...

       Grant Douglas shows no reaction to the music. But in David's room,
    David suddenly awakens and exclaims "Quentin! Quentin's back!", gets
    out of bed and leaves his room.  He goes to the west wing and hears
    Quentin's music playing.  Julia hears someone coming and quicky stops
    the gramophone and tells Grant to hide behind the curtains. David comes
    in and asks her what she's doing there. She replies that she's looking
    for something.  He tells her he heard Quentin's music playing and has
    the feeling that Quentin is back.  Julia replies that she turned the
    gramophone on accidently.  David sees Grant's shoes poking out from
    under the curtains and runs off in fear.
       Julia tells Grant they've got to leave, that they've got to be
    careful about being seen. She tells him to walk a few feet behind
    her, that he is to hide if she gives a signal.  They get to the foyer
    without being seen.  Unknown to them, David is spying on them from
    the partially open doors of the drawing room.  David hears Julia
    call the man "Mr. Douglas" and thinks to himself, "That's the man
    who visited the antique shop and was in the accident!"
       Alexander is in the antique shop drawing a picture of the Naga.
    Julia comes into the store and he quickly slams the pad shut.
    She starts to question him about the little girl who was at
    Collinwood. Alexander tells her he saw no little girl other than
    Amy.  Julia tells him she knows he's lying, that he must have seen
    her because Paul saw her going into the study when he was in there
    and demands that he tell the truth. They are interrupted by the
    arrival of Elizabeth, David and Amy. Elizabeth tells her that she's
    glad to find her here, that Mrs. Johnson has found where the paintings
    are stored.  She tells Julia that she brought the children here to play
    and can leave them here while they return to Collinwood to look at the
    pictures.  As Julia is leaving, she turns and looks at Alexander. He has
    a look of triumph on his face...
       As they are playing, Amy notices the picture of Carolyn age 8 on a
    table, picks it up and tells David.  Alexander demands that she give it
    back. Amy refuses, saying it doesn't belong to him, that he stole it.
    Alexander orders David to get it back. David asks Amy to give it back.
    Amy still refuses, and asks why he seems to be afraid of the little boy.
      At Collinwood, in a storage room in the west wing, Elizabeth and
    Julia are looking at some portraits.  Julia tells Elizabeth that she
    doesn't think it's wise for her to let the children play with Alexander
    and suggests that she not let them anymore.  Elizabeth asks why. Julia
    replies that she finds Alexander a strange kid.
      At the antique shop, Amy continues to refuse to give the picture of
    Carolyn back.  She runs into another room.  David tells Alexander he
    has a plan.  Noticing a book with a note saying "Return to Grant Douglas"
    attached, he picks up the phone and makes a call...
      At Collinwood, Julia finds a landscape that looks almost exactly like
    the one she bought.  Elizabeth remarks, "Oh yes. I bought that from a
    shop last year, but Roger didn't like it and had it put away here".
    Julia tells her that she can tell from the style that if must be a Tate.
    but they look at the signature and find that it says "Harrison Monroe,
    1968", last year. Julia tells Elizabeth that this is puzzling, that
    Charles Delaware Tate died 10 years ago, but that there's one person
    who'll know, Professor Stokes.
      David brings Amy back into the front room. He seems not to care about
    the picture anymore. Grant comes in. Amy sees him and flees in terror,
    running up the stairs. Grant asks David what's wrong with her.  David
    replies that she's just afraid of strangers. He gives Grant his book.
    Grant leaves.
      Upstairs, Amy is in front of Alexander's room. She hears a loud breathing
    sound coming from inside and, curious, opens the door. She sees something
    and screams..

      Barnabas comes to the antique shop. Alexander is alone in there.
    He scolds Alexander about what happened to Amy.  Alexander asks him
    how he found out.  Barnabas replies that David told him, that he's
    still out there looking for her.  Alexander angrily picks up a cup
    and hurls it to the floor. Barnabas tells him to pick it up.  Alexander
    refuses, saying he doesn't take orders from him.  Barnabas replies that
    once he's an adult, he'll be giving the orders, but while he's still
    a child, he, Barnabas is in charge.  Alexander picks up the cup.
    Barnabas tells Alexander that this stunt has put the plan in severe
    jeopardy and that he'll have to take care of Amy. He picks up the
    Naga box and leaves.
       Amy, still terrified by what she saw, goes to Chris's cottage.
       Stokes comes to Collinwood. Julia meets him in the foyer. He shows
    her the landscape she had given him. The top layer has been completely
    removed, revealing a portrait of Amanda Harris.  Julia tells him she
    has a surprise for him, another landscape. She brings him into the
    drawing room and shows it to him. He glances at it and says it's
    obviously another Tate painting, but Julia then shows him the signature
    and date.  Stokes is puzzled, and tells her he'll have to ask Alsman
    about this.
       At Chris' cottage, Amy hears the doorknob turning and becomes
    terrified.  Chris comes in and finds a terrified Amy. He asks her
    what's wrong. She tries to speak, but cannot.  Chris gives her a pencil
    and a piece of paper and asks her if she can write. She takes the pencil
    and writes the word "SHOP".  There's a knock on the door. Amy quicky
    grabs the paper, crumples it up and throws it into the fire and grabs
    Chris.  Chris says "Come in", and the knocker comes in. It is Julia.
    Julia asks what's wrong. Chris explains that Amy seems terrified of
    something, but cannot seem to speak, but that she wrote the word "SHOP"
    on a piece of paper.  Julia explains that Amy, David and Alexander had
    been playing in the antique shop and asks Chris to go ask David what
    happened while she stays here and takes care of Amy. Chris leaves.
    Julia talks to Amy and tries to find out what happened.  Barnabas
    comes.  When Julia mentions the name 'Alexander', Amy becomes so terrified
    that she turns away. Barnabas asks what's wrong with Amy. Julia explains
    that Amy seems to be sick and  can't speak.  But Amy does speak, and says,
    weakly, "Water..". Julia tells Barnabas to go get some water.  While
    Barnabas is out of the room, Julia tells Amy that even if she can speak,
    to pretend that she can't until Barnabas leaves. Amy nods.  Barnabas
    returns it with a glass of water.  Amy empties it in one draught.
    Barnabas remarks, "She certainly is thirsty, isn't she?". He asks if
    she has a fever. Julia says no, that in fact she seems somewhat cold.
    Barnabas puts his hand on Amy's forehead for a few seconds, and says,
    "You're right. She does seem cold.".  Julia asks him what he came here
    for. He replies that he came to see Chris to apologize for the way he's
    been acting toward him, to explain that it's just a result of his
    disappointment at having spent so much time in the past and not finding
    a cure.  Julia replies that Chris went to get her medical bag. Barnabas
    tells her he doesn't have time to wait for him and must leave.  He then
    remarks on how beautiful children look when they're sleeping. Julia looks
    at Amy and notices that she's fallen asleep on a chair.  Barnabas remarks
    that he's sure she'll be feeling better when she awakens and leaves.
      Chris comes back. Amy is still asleep.  Julia asks Chris what he found
    out.  Chris tells her that David said Grant Douglas came into the shop
    and Amy, thinking he was Quentin, became frightened. Amy wakes up and
    they ask her what happened.  She tells them Quentin came into the shop.
    They explain to her that it was only a man who looked like Quentin.
    She starts to say that there was something else, too, but that she
    can't remember..
      Stokes comes in and tells Julia that Alsman is certain the second
    painting is a Tate too, though he can't explain the signature and date.
    He gives Julia a piece of paper, saying it's Harrison Monroe's address,
    that maybe she'd like to ask him about it, but warns that Alsman told
    him that Monroe is a recluse and usually doesn't see anyone.  Julia
    asks him where "Glen Cove" is. Stokes tells her it's a small village
    near Rockport. Julia tells Chris to take care of Amy, that she' got
    to go. Chris asks her where she's going. Julia replies, "To see Charles
    Delaware Tate".  Stokes tells her not to jump to conclusions, that it
    can't be Tate, that Alsman attended Tate's funeral ten years ago...
      At Collinwood, Barnabas is in the drawing room with Alexander. The Naga
    box is in there too. Barnabas tells Alexander he has been successful, that
    Amy is now an intermediate, that when she comes into the room she'll
    open the box and the process will be complete.
      Chris takes Amy back to Collinwood and says goodbye to her in the
    foyer and leaves.  The drawing room doors are closed. Suddenly, they
    open. Alexander comes out, grabs Amy and pulls her into the room.
    Amy sees the box and a change seems to come over her. She goes and
    opens the box, and an even bigger change seems to come over her.
    She obediently gives the picture of Carolyn back to Alexander.
    Alexander asks, "You'll follow orders from now on, won't you?".
    She answers, "Yes..".  Barnabas has a look of triumph on his face..
      Julia arrives at Harrison Monroe's house and knocks on the door.
    A voice says "Go away. You are not welcome". She looks up and sees
    that the voice is coming from a loudspeaker above the door.  She
    replies, "But I have a message for Harrison Monroe". The voice repeats,
    "Go away. You are not welcome.".  Julia continues, "The message is
    from Charles Delaware Tate".  This time, the voice does not say anything.
    After a few seconds, the door opens by itself, probably electronically
    operated.  Julia goes in. The door then closes by itself...

       Julia finds herself alone in a dark room. She asks, "Where are
    you? I can't see you.".  The voice replies, "You will soon.", and
    gives her directions to go into another room. Julia goes through a
    door as instructed and finds herself in another dark room. The voice
    instructs her to sit in a chair. She does.  A light goes on, revealing
    a man sitting behind a desk. It is the spitting image of Charles
    Delaware Tate. The man identifies himself as Harrison Monroe and asks
    what the message is.  She tells him she knows he IS Charles Delaware
    Tate, that he looks just as he did in 1897.  She reminds him that he
    had painted a portrait of Quentin Collins back then that cured him of
    lycanthropy. Tate replies that that is only a legend. She asks him where
    it is. He replies that it had been destroyed in a fire. She replies that
    she has reason to believe that that is not true.  He retorts that if she
    knows that, then she knows more about it than him, and he can be of no
    use to her and tells her to leave him alone, that he took great pains to
    fake his own death 10 years ago and assume the identify of Harrison
    Monroe in order to have peace and solitude.  She tells him that she knows
    another man with the same problem as Quentin and asks him to paint a
    portrait of him and cure him the same way.  Tate replies that he can
    no longer paint.  Julia protests, "But I have a painting you did just
    last year. I know you have retained your talent as well as your youth!".
    Tate laughs crazily and answers cryptically "I am my own best creation!",
    tells her he cannot do the painting for her and orders her to leave.
    The lights go out and she does.
       At Collinwood, Elizabeth is in the drawing room writing a letter.
    Roger is in there as well. David is staring out a window.  Roger goes
    to him and tries to talk to him, but finds him melancholy and
    uncommunicative.  After David leaves the room, Roger remarks to Elizabeth
    that something seems to be wrong with David, but he cannot get him
    to tell him what it is.
       David goes up to his room and reads the Leviathan book. He reads a
    passage which says, "There will then follow a period of 10 days, and
    on the night of the tenth day, there will be another manifestation,
    and all who believe will come to pay homage to him..."
       David goes downstairs and finds Elizabeth alone in the drawing
    room.  He tells her he has read another prophecy in the book and
    they're going to have to go to the antique shop. They leave.
       Roger goes to David's room and finds it empty.
       Elizabeth and David arrive at the antique shop and go up to
    Alexander's room.  They hear the loud breathing sound emanating from
    inside. They knock on the door. It opens, and a boy of about 10 or
    12 comes out.  David or Elizabeth starts to say "Alexander..", but
    the boy interrupts and says, "You will call me Michael now".  He tells
    them they are to tell people that Alexander has gone home to his family.
    He tells Elizabeth to go home, but orders David to stay for the night.
       Julia returns to Collinwood.  Roger comes down the stairs and tells
    her David is missing. He tells her to search the house while he goes
    out and searches the grounds.
       Elizabeth leaves the antique shop.  Michael says to David, "You went
    to Barnabas and told him about Amy, didn't you?".  David admits that he
    did, that he had to because she ran off and was missing. Michael tells
    him he is very angry with him about that and will punish him for it.
    David asks how. Michael tells him he is to stay in the antique shop alone
    all night, that he is not to turn on any lights, that he is to stay
    quiet, that he is to stay awake, and that he is not to call for help
    no matter what happens.  David asks where Philip and Megan are. Michael
    replies that they are in their room, but have been instructed not to
    come out...
       Roger returns to Collinwood and tells Julia he didn't find David.
    Julia tells him she didn't find him either.  Roger starts to call the
    police. Elizabeth returns, and Roger tells her, "David's missing. I was
    just about to call the police". Elizabeth tells him not to, explaining
    that she took David to stay with a friend for the night.  Roger asks
    Elizabeth to come into the drawing room with him to talk privately.
    Inside the drawing room, Roger, furious, tells Elizabeth that David is
    HIS son, and she should have consulted with him before taking David.
    Elizabeth apologizes, saying she didn't think he would object. She
    explains that she found out what was wrong with David, that his friend
    Alexander is going to go home tomorrow morning and took David to stay
    at the antique shop for his last night here.  Julia, outside, eavesdrops
    through the door...
       In the shop, David sits in the dark waiting for something horrible
    to happen.  But nothing does, and morning comes.  (Apparently, it was
    just a test to see if he would follow orders.)  Michael comes downstairs
    and tells David he's done very well.  Julia comes in and asks for Carolyn.
    David replies that she doesn't come in this early.  Julia notices the
    boy and asks who he is, saying to David that she thought he was coming to
    spend the night with Alexander.  David replies that Alexander left
    earlier in the morning.  Michael raises his right hand to brush some
    hair away from his face.  Julia sees a birthmark on his wrist and
    suddenly says, "Well, I've got to leave now, I don't have time to
    wait for Carolyn", and leaves.  Michael tells David that even though
    she didn't say anything about it, he can tell that Julia saw the
    birthmark and knew it was significant. He tells David that something
    must be done about her...immediately.

       Barnabas goes to the antique shop, having been summoned there by
    Michael.  Michael tells him about Julia seeing the birthmark and
    recognizing its significance and orders Barnabas to kill her. Barnabas
    refuses, saying that even though he is one of them now, he cannot forget
    his friendship with Julia, that she risked her life for him.
       Barnabas returns to the old house.  He performs a ceremony over the
    box, asking for understanding about why he cannot kill Julia.  After
    that, he goes to sleep in a chair and has a dream in which a robed man
    appears to him.  Barnabas explains to him that he cannot kill Julia, that
    it's wrong for a child to order him to do something so cruel.  The man
    tells Barnabas that it's he who is wrong, wrong for disobeying orders,
    that they will teach him not to do so in the future.  The man explains
    who 'they' really are, that they are beings of energy who ruled the
    earth before mankind. The man goes on to explain that he, Barnabas, is
    not 'naturally' one of them, that he must continually prove himself.
    He tells Barnabas that they know what he was, and will use the fact
    to ensure obedience. He disappears.  Barnabas hears a sound and goes
    to investigate. Outside, he is attacked by a huge bat.
      He awakens, terrified. There is a knock at the door.  He answers.
    It is Megan.  She tells him Michael told her about ordering him to
    kill Julia, that she is starting to become afraid of Michael.  Barnabas,
    still distraught from the dream,  tells her he cannot talk to her right
    now as forces her to leave.  After she leaves, Barnabas happens to glance
    in a mirror and is shocked to see that he has no reflection.  He opens
    his mouth and finds he has fangs again...
      Barnabas goes to the docks. A prostitute focuses her attention on him
    and tries to 'sell' herself to him.  Although the has obviously come
    to the docks looking for prey, he reconsiders and tries to brush her off.
    But she is very insistent, and he finally weakens and attacks her.
    Afterwards, he runs off, overcome by guilt.
      Barnabas returns to the old house and falls asleep again. He has a
    dream again. In the dream, the prostitute comes to the old house and
    bares her fangs. She is now a vampire.  The robed man appears again
    and tells him the preceeding did not really happen, that he has not been
    turned back into a vampire, that it was all a dream, a warning to him
    of what they will do to him if he does not obey.  He asks Barnabas how
    he would like this to happen night after night again, telling him it
    won't have to happen if he is obedient.  Barnabas replies that he'd
    still refuse to kill Julia, that if he finds himself a vampire, he'll
    await the dawn and let himself be destroyed by it.  The man waves his
    hands and the vampire girl disappears. He tells Barnabas that she was
    really one of "them". The man tells Barnabas that he won't have to kill
    Julia, that they've decided that that's not necessary, that they have
    decided to deal with her another way.  The man gives Barnabas another
    reason to obey.  He reminds Barnabas that when they intercepted him,
    he was on his way to see Josette.  He tells him they have kidnapped her
    and are holding her hostage, that if he, Barnabas, does not obey, she
    will die in the most horrible way imaginable. Barnabas awakens and says,
    "Forgive me, Julia..."

       At Collinwood, Julia tells Elizabeth that she thinks there's someting
    suspicious about the children who keep appearing at the antique shop,
    that she's noticed that all three have had identical birthmarks in the
    identical spot, that if it weren't such a ridiculous idea, she'd almost
    think they were somehow one and the same.  Elizabeth agrees with her that
    that's ridiculous and tells Julia that it must be a coincidence.  Julia
    replies that she's not so sure, that she thinks something is going on
    at the shop and asks to speak to Paul, saying he's the first person who
    had suspicions about the shop.  Elizabeth refuses to let her, saying that
    Paul's mental state has taken a turn for the worse.  Julia vows to find
    out what's happening at the antique shop. Elizabeth leaves Collinwood,
    saying she has something to do.
      Chris comes to Collinwood and asks Julia what she found at Harrison
    Monroe's house.  Julia replies that there is no Harrison Monroe, that
    it's really Charles Delaware Tate, that somehow he looks just as he
    did in 1897, but that she's not going to be much help because he seems
    to be insane.  Chris reminds her that there will be a full moon tonight
    and they had better do something.  Julia informs Chris that Tate had
    told her that the portrait of Quentin had been destroyed, and that she's
    going to see if that is true by seeing if Grant, whom she suspects of
    being Quentin, turns into a werewolf tonight.
      Elizabeth, at the old house, tells Barnabas about Julia's suspicions
    and her vow to keep investigating until she uncovers the truth.
    Barnabas tells her "Julia will have to become one of us..".  Elizabeth
    tells Barnabas that Julia's curiosity has made her curious too, and asks
    what their ultimate objective is.  Barnabas tells her he cannot reveal
    that to her right now, only that someone they know will receive a
    great honor.  She asks who.  He replies that he cannot tell her that
       Barnabas goes to Collinwood. He finds Julia in the drawing room
    reading a book. He tells her that there's going to be a full moon
    tonight and tells her he is concerned about Chris and asks what she
    plans to do about him tonight.  Julia coldly tells him she finds his
    sudden concern odd and suspicious, but tells him she's going put Chris
    in Windcliff for the night.  He lies that he has always been concerned,
    that what she mistook for lack of concern was really his disappointment
    that there was nothing he could do to help.  He asks her what she is
    reading. She tells him it's another book on lycanthropy, that she going
    to continue to try to find a cure for Chris.  He tells her she looks
    tired, that it looks like she's been working too hard. He strokes her
    face and suggests that she get some rest and leaves.  Julia suddenly
    starts to feel strange. She gets up and stumbles upstairs and goes
    to bed.
       At the Inn, Olivia finds Grant drunk and argumentative. She asks him
    why he's acting so strangely today.  Grant replies that today is
    somehow different from other days, but that he doesn't know how.
       Julia has a dream in which Barnabas, holding the box, tells her he
    has decided to give it to her.  Emanating from inside is the loud
    breathing sound.  He tells her that at one time she had tried to open
    it. He tells her that now she can.  She tells him she doesn't want to
    anymore and runs off.  Barnabas remarks, "But the next time you see it
    you will feel compelled to open it..."
       In the drawing room,  Barnabas tells Elizabeth that the first step
    is complete, that Julia has had her dream.  He puts the box on a table,
    saying that when Julia sees it, she will feel compelled to open it.
    He tells Elizabeth to stay in the drawing room with Julia and make sure
    that it happens.  Barnabas exits the drawing room and goes into the room
    under the stairs.
       Julia comes downstairs and into the drawing room.  Elizabeth holds
    up the box and tells her someone left it there for her.  She suggests
    that she open it and see what's inside.  Julia reaches out to do so,
    but does not, appearing to be fighting the urge.  There's a knock at the
    door.  Julia remarks that she should go answer the door.  Elizabeth tells
    her that she is curious about what's in the box, and suggests she open
    the box first. But there is another knock at the door, and Julia walks
    away and opens the door. It is Chris. Julia seems disoriented.  He
    reminds her she had told him to meet her here at 3:00.  Seeming to
    recover a bit, she says, "Oh yes..".  She tells Elizabeth she has
    something important to do and leaves with Chris.  Barnabas comes back into
    the foyer.  Elizabeth tells him that Julia didn't open the box, that the
    spell seems to have been broken by the Chris' interruption.  But Barnabas
    says no, that normally the spell would have been too strong to have been
    broken by something so trivial as a knocking at the door, that Julia must
    be one of the few people who are genetically immune to being absorbed.
    He tells Elizabeth another method of dealing with Julia must be found,
    and that it will be up to her to find it.
       Julia, apparently having left Chris at Windcliff, arrives at Olivia's
    room alone. She has with her a painting wrapped in blue paper.  Olivia
    remarks that she's glad she brought the painting.  Julia replies that
    she's not so sure she'll still be interested in it when she sees what's
    happened to it.  She unwraps it and reveals the portrait of Amanda
    Harris, saying that it was under the landscape.  She accuses Olivia
    of knowing this, saying she knows she had it X-rayed. Olivia denies
    this, but tells Julia she's no longer interested in the painting because
    she already has many of her grandmother.  Julia replies, "Yes. You knew
    there was a portrait under the landscape, but you didn't know whose.
    You're looking for Quentin's portraint, aren't you?".  Olivia denies
    this and reminds Julia that it's she, Julia, who's interested in Quentin.
    Julia remarks that she thinks Grant might be interested in seeing
    the portrait.  Olivia replies that she doesn't think that would be such
    a good idea. Julia asks why.   Olivia replies that Grant got very drunk
    tonight and is in his room, probably sleeping it off.  Julia insists
    and goes to Grant's room despite Olivia's objections.  She knocks on
    the door, but receives no answer. She tries the door and finds it
    unlocked. She opens it and finds the room in shambles.

       Carolyn is not sure keeping Paul sedated in his room is wise and
    discusses it with Elizabeth.  Elizabeth  tells her it's what the
    doctor ordered.  Elizabeth leaves to go to a meeting of the Collinsport
    Historical Society with some items.
       Paul leaves his room and comes downstairs and starts toward the
    front doors, but Carolyn sees him and stops him.  He tells her he's
    in danger here at Collinwood, that 'they' are here and he's got to
    leave.  Elizabeth comes back, saying she forgot to get her great grand
    mother's sugar bowl. Paul sees her and faints.
       Paul regains consciousness and finds himself in bed in his room.
    Elizabeth tries to give him some medicine, but her refuses, saying he
    thinks the doctor is 'one of them' and that it's the medicine that's
    making him weak. Elizabeth leaves. Mrs. Johnson comes in with a glass
    of milk and a plate of cookies for him. Paul appears to accept them.
    Mrs. Johnson leaves the room and nods to Elizabeth, who is in the
    hallway. A few minutes later, they look into the room. The glass of milk
    is empty and Paul is out cold.  Mrs. Johnson remarks that he'll be out
    for quite a while, judging from how much medicine they put in the milk.
    She asks Elizabeth if she's sure what she's doing is wise.  Elizabeth
    replies that it is, that if they don't move him to the tower room, he'll
    try to escape again.  They leave to prepare the tower room.  As soon as
    they leave, Paul opens his eyes. An overhead shot shows that he has
    poured the milk into an empty vase on the bedside table rather than
    drinking it.
      Carolyn comes into Paul's room. He again tells her he is in danger here
    and must escape.  He tells her to go and make sure the coast is clear.
    Carolyn agrees and leaves.
      Carolyn, whom it appears was just humoring him, comes back with
    Elizabeth. But when they go into the room, Paul is gone...
      Paul exits Collinwood through a window....
      Elizabeth tells Carolyn and Mrs. Johnson to search the grounds.
      Paul sees a man and collapses.  The man revives him. It's Stokes.
    Paul tells Stokes that he's in danger here and asks him to take him
    to the police.
      Stokes drives Paul to the police station.  Paul tells his story about
    being threatened by 'them'.  The sheriff asks who 'they' are. Paul
    replies that there are many of them. The sheriff asks him to name one.
    Paul tells him Elizabeth is one of them.  The sheriff promises to
    investigate and tells Paul to get some rest.
      The sheriff awakens Paul and tells him he has a visitor and opens
