      Quentin asks the constable to be allowed to see his son Tad before 
   being taken away. The constable agrees. Quentin calls for Tad. He comes
   into the drawing room. The constable leaves to let them talk alone. 
   Quentin tells Tad about his arrest, but assures him that he is innocent
   and will be out soon. After they finish, Tad leaves and the Constable 
   comes back in. Quentin asks to be allowed to speak briefly to Daphne
   regarding Tad's care. The constable agrees. Quentin tells him he doesn't
   know where she is and must go look for her. The constable tells him he'll
   allow him to do so, but must accompany him. They leave to find Daphne.
      Tad goes to Daniel and tells him about Quentin and asks him to help
   him keep his father out of jail, begging, "Don't let them take him away!".
      Quentin and the constable walk out of the door under the stairs into
   the foyer. They have been unable to find Daphne. Quentin asks the 
   constable to let him leave a note for her. He agrees.
      Charles Dawson goes to Gerard's room at Rose Cottage and asks him what
   reason he would have to kill Randall Drew. Gerard replies, "Randall Drew
   learned a little too much. He went into my room and found the golden mask".
   Dawson remarks that he had good reason to kill Randall. Gerard replies,
   "But I didn't do it!". Dawson asks who did. Gerard replies that he doesn't
   know, that he thinks someone else hates Quentin and is trying to frame him.
      At Collinwood, Daniel bursts into the drawing room and demands to be
   allowed to speak to Quentin alone. The constable steps out into the foyer
   to let him. Daniel asks Quentin about the accusations. Quentin tells him
   he's innocent. Daniel tells him that, in view of the evidence he has 
   heard and his medding into the occult, he doesn't believe him. Overcome
   by everything, he then has a heart attack. The constable and Gerard and
   Dawson, who have just arrived, rush in. The constable and Dawson take 
   Daniel upstairs. Gerard tells Quentin that he's heard about what happened
   and will do everything he can to help. The constable comes back down and
   tells Gerard that Daniel wants to talk to him. Gerard leaves. The 
   constable tells Quentin he's sorry, but he's got to take him in.
      Daniel and Dawson are upstairs. Gerard comes in to talk to Daniel.
   Dawson leaves. Daniel asks Gerard for help. He tells him he thinks 
   Quentin is guilty and is thinking of changing his will, but must know 
   for sure before doing so. Fearing that he will not live to see the 
   conclusion of Quentin's trial to learn the verdict, he asks Gerard to 
   help him find the truth before then. Gerard agrees to help.
      The constable brings Quentin in. His wife, who's in the station, is
   shocked to see him and appears to be afraid of him. She warns her husband
   that Quentin is a very dangerous man and reminds him of what he did to
   her father Mordecai's cows. The constable locks Quentin in the cell. 
   His wife sees the ring Quentin is wearing and screams, "The sign of the
   Devil! That proves he's the murderer!".
      Gerard tells Dawson, "You are going to help me", saying that he's going
   to play a ghost, that he's going to play the part of Randall Drew. He
   explains to him how Daniel asked him to help him find proof of Quentin's
   innocence or guilt, and tells him they're going to hold a phony seance to
   prove his guilt.
      Gerard and Dawson hold the phony seance for Daniel. The three of them
   are sitting around a table, hands joined. Gerard calls for the spirit of
   Randall to communicate with them. Dawson pretends to become possessed by
   the spirit of Randall Drew. Gerard asks him who killed him. Dawson replies,
   is a phony ghostly voice, "The name of the man who killed me is Quentin
   Collins". Gererd pretends to be shocked and disappointed and sadly says,
   "I was sure it wasn't true...". Daniel replies, "I thought he was guilty
   all along. I just wanted to make sure. Now I am. I must change my will..."

      Gabriel is in the drawing room. Gerard comes in and remarks him that
   he looks worried, as if he were afraid that Quentin might be found
   innocent and released and that since it was his testimony that was most
   resposnsible for his arrest, Quentin would cut him off without a penny.
   He tells Gabriel he need not worry about this because Daniel has just
   changed his will and Quentin is no longer heir. Gabriel asks who is. Gerard
   refuses to tell him, but does give him the broad hint that Daniel had
   said, "Quentin is no longer my heir, but I do have another son..."
      Angelique and Laszlo meet in the gazebo. Angelique reprimands Laszlo 
   for his failure in letting Julia get away. Laszlo protests that he 
   couldn't help it, that Barnabas forced him to tell him where she was. 
   Angelique asks how Barnabas could possibly have known he had any link to
   her and knew where Julia was. Laszlo admits that he had taken a ring from
   Julia and that Barnabas had seen the ring. Angelique scolds him for his
   greed and stupidity, but tells him she has more important things to worry
   about now than Julia. She tells him that Judah Zachary has returned, and
   they must be very careful...
      At Collinwood, Gabriel tells Daphne about Quentin's arrest. She rushes
   out to go see him.
      Angelique finishes telling Laszlo about Judah Zachary. She tells him
   she believes that he has returned and now inhabits someone else's body.
   Laszlo asks who. She tells him she suspects Gerard because he had called her
   Miranda. Laszlo asks why Judah Zachary would come back. She tells Laslo
   that Zachary has come back for revenge, that he vowed to come back and
   destroy everyone responsible for his death, and that means the Collins
   family and her. She tells him she's not sure Gerard is Judah Zachary, but
   that there is a simple ceremony she can conduct to find out, but that in
   order to conduct it, she needs something of Gerard's. She suggests his
   watch bob. Laszlo asks how she plans to steal his watch bob. She replies,
   "I won't. You will.".
      Quentin is in his jail cell. Mrs. Ward brings him a letter. He looks
   at it and sees it's from Joanna. He asks Mrs. Ward who brought it. She
   tells him she doesn't know. He grabs her through the bars and demands to
   know. She insists that she doesn't know, saying it was already there when
   she walked into the room. Daphne comes. Mrs. Ward tells Daphne that
   Quentin is a dangerous man and warns her against having anything to do
   with him. She leaves. Daphne tells Quentin she thinks he's innocent. He
   tells her she didn't need to tell him that. She asks what the commotion
   with Mrs. Ward was all about. He tells her he has received another letter
   from Joanna. He opens it and reads it to her. It says, "This crisis shall
   pass as all the other ones have. I still love you.". Daphne warns Quentin
   that the entire town is riled up against him. Quentin remarks that Trask
   is responsible. Daphne tells him that there's clamor to dispense with a
   regular trial and have a Witchcraft Tribunal instead. Quentin tells her
   she doesn't have to worry that this might happen, that Witchcraft
   Tribunals were outlawed years ago.
      Laszlo goes to Collinwood and knocks on the door. Gerard answers. Laslo
   offers to tell fortunes. Gerard tells him he doesn't think much of Gypsy
   fortune tellers and orders him to leave, but Gabriel sees him from the
   drawing room and tells Gerard to invite him in. Gerard and Laszlo go into
   the drawing room, joining Gabriel and Angelique, who are in there. Laszlo
   reads Gabriel's palm and announces, "I see a change in you future. A
   change for the better."  Gabriel asks if he will be pleased with the
   change.  Laszlo replies, "Extremely!". He offers to read Gerard's palm.
   Gerard refuses.  Angelique asks, "Oh please, Gerard..." in a playful voice
   that makes it sound like she's asking him not to spoil the fun. Laszlo
   pretends to read Gerard's palm. While giving him nothing but meaningless
   generalities, he steals his watch bob.
      Daphne has a dream in which Quentin is calling for her from his jail
   cell. Mrs. Ward taunts him, saying Daphne won't come now, that she's
   learned the truth about him. Quentin begs for Daphne to come see him
   before his execution. Daphne, nearby, is embracing Gerard, not caring
   about Quentin at all...
      Daphne awakens from her dream, feeling uneasy but unable to remember
   the dream. She wonders why she keeps having dreams she can't remember
      Angelique meets Laszlo at the Gazebo. He gives her the watch bob. He
   tells her he is worried, that when Gerard notices it missing, he'll be the
   first person he suspects, and if he is as powerful as she says, he'll be
   in real trouble. She tells him not to worry, that she'll be finished with
   it soon, and when she is, she'll give it back to him and lie to him that
   she found it on the drawing room floor.
      Gerard walks into the drawing room and finds Daphne sitting there in
   her nightshirt.  He remarks that it looks like she had a bad dream and
   couldn't sleep...
      Later, at 10:45 P.M., Angelique is in the drawing room alone. Holding
   Gerard's watch bob, she casts a spell at the fire, asking to be shown
   "Judah Zachary in the guise in which he now walks.". She is shocked to
   see Quentin appear in the fire. Unbeknownst to her, spying on her from
   the foyer is Gerard. He smiles...

      Gerard walks into the drawing room and nonchalantly says, "Oh. I 
   thought I heard someone in here. Ah, my watch bob. Where did you find 
   it?". Angelique lies that she found it on the floor. Gerard remarks,"I'm
   glad I dropped it in here. I thought I had lost it outside and would 
   never find it again. I wouldn't have known what to say to Quentin.".
   Angelique asks, "Quentin?". Gerard replies, "Yes. It used to be his. He 
   gave it to me as token of our friendship.". (Obviously, he's giving a
   reason why she should see Judah Zachary in something of his. She had
   said she needed something of Judah Zachary's). He tells her he finally
   realized why he called her Miranda, that he was going through some things
   of Desmonds and was reading a book called "The Journal of Judah Zachary"
   and read a discription of a woman named Miranda who sounded remarkably
   like her. Angelique asks, "A book belonging to Desmond?". Gerard replies,
   "Desmond had it, but I think he borrowed it from Quentin...". After 
   Gerard leaves, Angelique thinks to herself, "I'll do everything I can
   to see Quentin convicted and executed.  What irony!  I will be responsible
   for his execution just as I was 150 years ago!".
      Gabriel dotes on Daniel, bring him broth and hovering over him.
      Barnabas and Angelique run into each other in the foyer. She tries to
   talk to him, but he tells her he won't have anything to do with her after
   what she did to Roxanne and tried to do to Julia. She asks, "You're
   really that devoted to her, are you?"  He replies that he is. She tells
   him she doesn't make good choices in friends and offers Quentin as an
      Daphne walks into the drawing room and finds Barnabas in there. He
   tells her he's heard about Quentin's arrest and doesn't believe he's
   guilty. He tells her he must have a talk with Daniel. She finds a letter
   on the table addressed to her from Joanna. She asks Barnabas if he saw who
   put it there. Barnabas replies that he didn't.
      Daphne, in the gazebo, reads the letter. It says, "You have not heeded
   my warnings. Therefore, I shall watch over you and protect you."  Gerard
   shows up. She shows him the letter, saying it's the most frightening one
   yet because it means that Joanna is actually in the house. He tells her
   he'll help her in every way possible. They kiss. Daphne suddenly pull
   away and wonders why she did that.
      At Collinwood, Gabriel answers the door. It is a messenger. The
   messenger gives him a letter from Quentin to Daniel. After the messenger
   leaves, Gabriel thinks to himself, "Quentin is probably trying to change
   Daniel's mind about his guilt. If he's successful, Daniel will change his
   will back. Quentin IS quite persuasive... Daniel will never see this
   letter!"  He turns and rolls back into the foyer. He is startled to see
   Barnabas standing at the top of the stairs. Barnabas comes down and
   says, "I thought I heard the messenger say he had a letter from Quentin
   to Daniel."  Gabriel, holding the letter, replies, "Yes. I was just going
   up to give it to him."  Barnabas tells him he'll save him the trip and
   bring it up for him.  Gabriel, not knowing what else to do, gives it to
      Daniel, having read the letter, lets Barnabas read it too. Barnabas
   tells Daniel that the letter has convinced him of Quentin's innocence.
   Daniel tells him that it hasn't convinced him. Barnabas tells Daniel
   that he had visited Quentin in jail and tells him how warmly Quentin had
   spoken about him, about how much he said he loved him and how disappointed
   he was that he had so quickly decided he was guilty and changed the will.
   He begs him to give Quentin the benefit of a doubt and believe in his
   innocence until proven otherwise.
      Gerard and Daphne return to Collinwood. In the foyer, Daphne is shocked
   to smell what smells like Joanna's perfume in the air. Gerard tells her
   it's probably nothing, probably just some other woman in the house wearing
   the same perfume. Daphne goes into the drawing room while Gerard starts
   to go upstairs. He hears Daphne scream, "NO!". He rushes into the drawing
   room and asks what's wrong. Daphne shows him a purse and pair of gloves
   and tells him they're Joanna's. She tells him she found them on a table
   in there.
      After Gerard calms Daphne down and she goes upstairs, Gabriel comes
   into the drawing room and tells him about the letter from Quentin to
   Daniel. He tells him that Barnabas brought the letter up to him and that
   he's worried because he's been up there with him for over an hour. They
   see Barnabas come down into the foyer. Gerard tells Gabriel he'll go talk
   to Daniel and try to find out what happened.
      Gabriel asks Barnabas to come into the drawing room. He does. He
   remarks that he doesn't like his meddling and hints to  him that when he
   gets control of Collinwood, there'll be retribution.
      Gerard comes back down into the drawing room and finds Gabriel in there
   alone, Barnabas having left. Gabriel asks what he learned. Gerard replies
   that Daniel wouldn't tell him if he's going to change the will or not, but
   that he told him that he would summon Desmond (a lawyer) in the morning,
   and that this must mean that he is planning to change it back in Quentin's
      In his room, Daniel Collins starts to read the new will he has just
   written aloud. Gabriel bursts into the room and exclaims, "So, you've
   revised your will again?". Daniel reprimands him for coming in without
   knocking. Gabriel angrily complains, "You've always favored Quentin over
   me just because I was crippled!". Daniel angrily replies, "NO!  I favored
   Quentin over you not because you were crippled, but because of the way
   you handled it!  Because of your self-pity, the way you used misfortune to
   get people to do what you wanted!  If it had been Quentin who had been
   crippled, he would have faced it quite differently, he would have fought
   it and made the best of it!  You're nothing but a weakling and a coward!".
   Gabriel, furious, stands up out of his wheelchair and yells, "ENOUGH!".
   Daniel, shocked, gasps, "You can walk!!"  Gabriel replies, Gabriel
   replies, "Yes! I can walk!  I've been able to walk for years, and
   I been waiting for the opportunity to get back at Quentin!"  Daniel,
   shocked, gasps, "You're worse than I thought!  You mean you're responsible
   for....". Gabriel replies, "Yes! I killed Randall Drew!  Give me that
   will!". He grabs the will and tries to take it from Daniel.  Daniel grasps
   his chest in pain, gasps for breath and falls to the ground...

      Samantha comes in and asks what happened. Gabriel tells her Daniel had
   an attack and tells her to go get a doctor. She leaves to do so. He takes
   the will and reads it.  It states that everything is to go to Quentin.
      Desmond and Gerard are at Rose Cottage discussing Quentin. Desmond,
   who's representing Quentin, wonders who's trying to frame him. He tells
   Gerard that he's certain that Quentin won't be tried for the murder of
   Randall Drew, that all the evidence is circumstantial and he's sure he'll
   be able to get the case dismissed. After Desmond leaves, Gerard thinks
   to himself,"No, it won't for murder that he'll be tried..." and smiles.
      Samantha and Gabriel are with Daniel in his room. Daniel regains
   consciousness, sees Gabriel and gasps, "Gabriel!". Gabriel screams to
   Samantha to get out, saying he wants to be with his father. But before
   she can, Daniel gasps, "Gabriel... A life of lies.. You...". Before he
   can say more, however, he dies.  Samantha leaves.  Edith comes in. Gabriel
   shows her the will, reads her the passage in it leaving everything to
   Quentin, then burns it, saying, "There goes Quentin's fortune in flames!
   She asks him if he had anything to do with Daniel's death. He lies that
   he didn't. He tells her to go to Rose Cottage and tell Desmond and Gerard
   about Daniel's death.
      Edith goes to Rose Cottage and tells Desmond and Gerard about Daniel's
   death. Desmond rushes off. Edith tells Gerard that she thought she would
   soon be free, but that she's trapped with Gabriel now that he has
   apparently inherited the Collins fortune. Gerard tells her there is a way
   out. He tells her she must serve his master, that doing so will give her
   a lot of power. To prove that, he holds up his hand and tells her to feel
   it, saying it would feel like it was on fire to her. She touches his hand
   and, startled, feels fire and pulls her hand away. Gerard tells her to
   touch it again. She does. This time it is cool. She agrees to join.  He
   has her take an oath. They kiss...
      At Collinwood, Desmond, Samantha and Gabriel are in the drawing room.
   Desmond tells them how much it hurt Quentin when he told him of his
   father's death. Gabriel asks Desmond to get the will and read it. Desmond
   is shocked that Gabriel would be so callous to want it read so soon after
   his father's death and tells him it's customary to wait until after the
   funeral. Samantha insists that he read it too, and, confronted by two
   Collins' demanding that he read it, goes to get it. After he leaves,
   Gabriel, confident that he is the heir, tells Samantha that she's welcome
   to stay at Collinwood as long as she likes, that he will show the same
   kindness to her that she showed to him when she thought she was going to
   inherit the Collins fortune, namely, little. He tells her he is going to
   let her and Tad live in a very, very small room and give them a very,very
   small allowance.
      Edith returns to Collinwood. Gabriel scolds her for staying with
   Gerard rather than returning with Desmond. She tells him she'll stay
   with whomever she likes. Gerard comes in. Gabriel orders Edith to go up
   to her room. She leaves. Gerard suggests to Gabriel that he should reward
   him for his services to him when he gets the inheritance.  Gabriel tells
   him he'll be rewarded all right, the be rewarded by being ordered to
   leave Collinwood and never return. Samantha comes into the foyer, sees
   Gerard and exclaims, "How dare you come into this house!". Gabriel tells
   her Gerard is his special guest to listen to the reading of the will.
      Desmond and Edith come down. They all go into the drawing room. Desmond
   unseals the will, which he has not seen, and starts to read it. When he
   gets to the part telling who the heir is, he abruptly stops. Gabriel
   prompts him, "Come on!  Who gets it?  Who?". But Desmond can only say,
   "Oh my God!".

      Desmond continues reading the will, "To my son Quentin, who has
   disappointed me,  I give only my father's watch..."  The will states
   that the estate is to go to Tad at the age of 21, but that it will go to
   a guardian until such time.  Everyone waits breathelessly as Desmond reads
   on about the guardian, "so I therefore apppoint as guardian of my estate,
   all the money, the factories and the fishing fleet, to my son..."  Gabriel
   smiles gloatingly, but then Desmond continues, "...and I call him my son
   because he has become like a son to me, Gerard Stiles..." Everyone gasps.
   Desmond finishes reading the will, which goes on to say that should
   Quentin be found innocent, the the estate will revert to him.  Gabriel is
   given nothing but the right to live at Collinwood and an allowance from
   Gerard "enough to meet his needs".  Gabriel glares at Gerard and
   sarcastically remarks, "And I'm sure you'll decide my needs are very
   little".  He vows to contest the will.
      Later, Charles Dawson comes and congratulates Gerard on getting it all.
   Gerard replies that he doesn't quite have it all yet, that Quentin might
   still be found innocent and the fortune revert to him. He tells him he
   has to go to town to do something.
      Gerard and Dawson go into town to visit Quentin. Gerard tells Quentin
   about the will. Quentin is surprised. Gerard assures him that he doesn't
   want the fortune and is sure he'll be found innocent and get the money.  
   He assures him that he won't be in jail for long. Quentin remarks,"There's
   one good thing about being in here. Whoever's trying to frame me won't 
   kill anyone while I'm in here.".  
      In the drawing room at Collinwood, Edith taunts Gabriel about getting
   nothing. Gerard and Dawson return to Collinwood. Gerard tells Edith he'll
   give her an adequate suite. After Edith and Gabriel leave, Gerard remarks 
   to Dawson, "Have a brandy. It's mine. Everything's mine!". Dawson replies,
   "For the moment. We must make sure Quentin is tried for witchcraft 
   instead of murder."  Gerard replies, "Quentin made an interesting statement
   to me. He remarked that there would be no more killings while he was in
   jail.  Now what if someone were to die at the jail while he was there, die
   with no visible cause?"  Dawson pulls out a scarf, identifies it as Mrs.
   Ward's and says, "I was thinking along those lines when I stole this
   while we were at the jail...
      Gerard and Dawson go to Edith and ask her to help them. Gerard wraps
   the scarf around her neck and tightens it. He chants that this won't
   hurt her, rather it will hurt the real owner of the scarf.
      At the jail, Mrs. Ward, who's bringing dinner to Quentin, strangles
   and falls to the floor. Quentin kneels down to examnine her and exclaims,
   "She's dead!".

      Trask comes in and sees Quentin kneeling over the dead body of Mrs.
   Ward. He tells him,"Trask, I didn't do it!". But Trask doesn't believe
      At Collinwood, Daphne goes into the drawing room and angrily tells 
   Gerard she thinks he took advantage of Quentin's friendship and stole
   his inheritance. Desmond comes in and tells Gerard he'd like to talk 
   to him about Tad. Before they can talk, however, Trask rushes in and 
   tells them that Mrs. Ward has died and that Quentin is responsible for
   it. Desmond rushes out to find out what happened.  
      Desmond goes to the jail to see Quentin. Quentin explains to him what
   happened, saying he thinks it was a heart attack. Desmond tells him he
   has nothing to worry about, that all the evidence against him is 
   circumstantial and that he's certain the judge will drop the case and
   that he'll be a free man after the pre-trial inquest tomorrow.
      Desmond returns to Collinwood and tells Daphne he learned what happened
   at the jail and is still sure Quentin will be released after the inquest
   tomorrow. Daphne is overjoyed. Desmond remarks that someone is out there
   trying to frame Quentin and that they've got to find out who it is. Daphne
   agrees and tells him she thinks it's Gerard. Desmond replies, "You think
   that too?"  He asks Daphne to keep an eye on Gerard. Daphne remarks,
   "If it IS witchraft, then that means he's a....". Unbeknownst to them,
   Trask is outside in the foyer eavesdropping.
      Trask goes to Gerard and tells him that Desmond and Daphne are plotting
   against him.
      After Trask leaves, Gerard takes out the occult symbol and casts a
   spell on Daphne.
      Daphne has a dream in which she comes down the stairway at Collinwood
   dressed in a wedding gown. She walks into the waiting arms of Gerard and
   they kiss. She awakens, feeling deeply disturbed again, but once again
   cannot remember the dream.
      The inquest is held. Desmond goes over the evidence and proves that it
   is all circumstantial and asks the judge to dismiss the case. The judge
   agrees and does so, but stuns Desmond by telling him the inquest is not
   finished yet, that there is yet another matter to consider. He calls
   Trask up and asks, "Do you have the papers you we talked about?". Trask
   replies, "Yes" and gives him a sheaf of papers. The judge adjourns the
   inquest, saying they'll reconvene after he's read the papers.
      The inquest reconvenes. The judge announces that in view of the 
   evidence presented by Trask, he has no choice but to try Quentin for
   Witchcraft. Desmond vehemently objects, saying no one has been tried for
   Witchcraft for 150 years. The judge tells him that the law is still on
   the books, that according to a law passed on April 23, 1692, if six or
   more depositions are presented accusing a person of Witchcraft, then
   that person must be tried for Witchcraft. He tells him that Trask has
   presented the required number of depositions against Quentin and that
   he must therefore try Quentin for Witchcraft, and if he is found guilty,
   he'll be sentenced to die in the manner prescribed by the aforementioned
   law, beheading*...

   *So why did they hang Victoria Winters if the penalty for Witchcraft
    since 1692 is beheading?

      At Rose Cottage, Flora hears a noise and looks out the window. She sees
   a crowd outside and wonders what they're doing there. Leticia comes 
   running in and exclaims that she went to the inquest, but found an angry
   crowd outside, that someone yelled,"She's one of them! She has second
   sight!" and that the crowd started chasing her, that she ran but they 
   chased her all the way back to Rose Cottage.  Desmond comes in. He tells
   them the bad news, that Quentin is to be tried for Witchcraft.  They are
   shocked.  He tells them he suspects someone is trying to frame Quentin and
   that he suspects it's Gerard. Flora tells him that's ridiculous and leaves.
   Desmond asks Leticia about Gerard's history, about what she knows about
   him. She tells him about how they met, how he saw her stage show and was
   impressed by her powers of second sight. She tells him that Gerard had
   no powers of his own, though. She agrees to help him keep an eye on 
      Flora, Carrie,Desmond and Leticia are in the cemetary after the 
   Daniel's funeral.  Carrie sees someone behind the trees and gasps,
   "Someone been watching us, over there!". Whoever it is runs off.
      Flora, Carrie, Desmond and Leticia return to Rose Cottage, having been
   unable to find who was spying on them. Carrie prepares to leave and go
   back to Collinwood, but Leticia stops her and says, "Oh yes, there's the
   perfume I promised to lend you!". They leave to get it. Flora tells 
   Desmond she's worried about his defending Quentin, that with the ugly
   mood in the village, people might accuse HIM of being in league with the
   devil as well. Desmond tells her there's no need to worry about that yet,
   but that she must not tell anyone about the head he brought back from
   Asia, that if people learn about that, they will accuse him of practicing
      Carrie is walking in the woods back to Collinwood. She hears a noise
   behind her and demands, "Who's there?". A young man of about 18 or 20
   years of age comes out.  He calls her by name.  Shocked, she asks, "How
   do you know my name?"  He tells her, "I know quite a lot about you.
   You're Carrie Stokes, daughter of Amos Stokes and Margaret Bradbury".
   He introduces himself as Jeremy Grimes, son of Mordecai Grimes and
   apologizes to her for the trouble his father has caused to the Collins
   family, saying he's embarassed about his father's '17th century mind'.
   He tells her that he saw them in the cemetary after Daniel's funeral
   and felt sorry for them. Carrie exclaims, "That was you!". He offers
   to walk her back to Collinwood.                   
      At Rose Cottage, Leticia tells Flora that she's found something 
   interesting in the old newspapers she's been having her research for her
   book, that there were a series of attacks in 1797 just like the ones
   that have happened recently, the victims having two bite holes on their
   necks. Flora remarks, "Vampires live forever. Maybe it's the same vampire
   who attacked Roxanne."  She tells Leticia that there are some old family
   diaries from that period at Collinwood and asks her to go get it, saying,
   "If there's a vampire in our midst, I've got to find out who it is!"
      Jeremy and Carrie are outside the front door of Collinwood. He asks her
   it they can see more of each other in the future. She says yes.
      Barnabas goes to Rose Cottage. He and Desmond talk about Quentin.
   Desmond remarks that he thinks it's Gerard who's trying to frame him.
   Barnabas agrees. They agree that they must find proof against Gerard.
      At Collinwood, Leticia walks into the drawing room and finds Carrie
   in there. She is smiling broadly, and talks to Leticia of love. Leticia
   remarks, "You've met someone, haven't you?  I can tell!"  Carrie asks
   Leticia to read her palm, asksing, "Will I be happy?"  Leticia takes her
   palm and looks at it. A strange expression comes over her face. She
   replies, "Yes. You'll be very happy".  Carrie asks, "I can tell from
   your expression that that's not what you saw. What did you see?". Leticia
   is evasive. Carrie exclaims, "You saw me and Tad dead, didn't you? That's
   what I saw in the crystal ball!"  She starts to cry and she and Leticia
      Barnabas is in the drawing room of Rose Cottage with Flora. Flora
   tells Barnabas she is very disappointed that she didn't see him at
   Daniel's funeral. Barnabas explains that something came up. Flora tells
   him that she's just realized something very important, that if Roxanne
   was turned into a vampire, it must have been another vampire that was
   responsible, not witchcraft, as everyone is thinking. She tells him about
   the attacks in 1797 she's learned about and that she thinks it might be
   the same vampire and has sent Leticia to Collinwood to fetch some old
   diaries to see if she can find out from them who is. Leticia returns,
   holding a pile of old diaries in her arms. Flora suddenly things of
   something and exclaims, "Why didn't I think of it before?  There's a
   very simple way we can find out who turned Roxanne into a vampire!  We
   can hold a seance and ask her!"  She asks Leticia to hold a seance.
   They sit around the table. Leticia asks them to join hands in a circle.
   She starts the seance.  She calls for the spirit of Roxanne Drew to
   appear. The door blows open. Roxanne's ghost appears. Leticia asks,
   "Will you tell us who turned you into a creature of the night, into
   a vampire?".
      Roxanne's ghost replies,"Yes!  Yes!"

      Leticia asks, "Tell us! Tell us who made you into a vampire so that 
   others may avoid the same fate!"  Roxanne's ghost replies, "Angelique!
   Angelique made me a vampire!" and vanishes. Leticia asks Flora,
   "Angelique?  Who's Angelique?". Flora replies, "I don't know, but I can
   tell from the look on Barnabas' face that he does".  Barnabas replies,
   "Yes, but it couldn't be the same Angelique she was talking about. The
   Angelique I knew was my mother."  After Barnabas leaves, Flora tells
   Leticia that she doesn't believe Barnabas, that his entire attitude was
   suspicious, that he obviously didn't want them to hold the seance, that
   he intentionally broke the circle just as Roxanne was about to tell who
   made her into a vampire, as if he were attempting to end the seance and
   stop her from telling.  She remarks that Gerard had told her Barnabas was
   suspicious and not to be trusted, that after tonight, she believes him.
   She tells Leticia that, not trusting Barnabas, she's going to do some
   investigation into "Angelique".  Barnabas, still outside the door,
   is eavesdropping through the door and hears this.  
      Barnabas goes to Collinwood and tells Angelique about what happened
   at Collinwood, saying he told Flora "Angelique" was his mother because
   it was on record that the original Barnabas had married an Angelique.
   He warns her to be careful, saying that Flora has vowed to learn the
   truth.  He asks her to use her powers to help Quentin. She refuses,
   saying, "Quentin is guilty, and the sooner he is executed, the better for
      Gerard goes to Rose Cottage.  Flora asks him for a favor. He tells her
   he's come to ask her a favor too.  He tells her he'd like her to spend
   more time at Collinwood. She tells him her favor. She asks him if he's
   seen a book called "The Journal of Judah Zachary", saying Desmond's been
   looking for it and she thought maybe he took it by mistake when he moved
   his things to Collinwood. He tells her he hasn't seen it. She leaves to
   continue looking for the Journal. Leticia come in and looks at Gerard
   strangely. After Gerard leaves, Flora comes into the room and, noticing
   the strange expression on her face, asks, "Is something wrong?". Leticia
   replies, "Yes. Something's very wrong. He's different, very different,
   and it frightens me!".
      Gerard returns to Collinwood and finds Daphne in the drawing room.
   He assures her that her suspicions are wrong, that he doesn't want the
   Collins inheritance and can't wait for Quentin to be released so he can
   give it back to him. Daphne tells her she is worried about whether that
   will happen. Gerard tries to comfort her, but she accuses him of trying
   to steal her from Quentin as well and leaves. Gerard takes out his occult
   charm and casts a spell...
      In her room, Daphne falls asleep and has a dream. It is a continuation
   of the last one she had. In it, Gerard puts a wedding ring on her finger.
   They are married. They then find themselves in bed, kissing. Daphne tells
   Gerard she has never been so happy in her life.
      Daphne wakes up exclaiming, "Gerard!". She wonders why she said his
   name. Again she is disturbed but cannot remember the dream.
      Downstair, Gerard hears the front door and quickly puts away the 
   amulet. Angelique comes into the drawing room and asks him if she could
   borrow a book from him. She asks if she could borrow the book he had 
   mentioned earlier, "The Journal of Judah Zachary", saying it sounded
   interesting. He tells her he can't, that it's Desmond's, and that Desmond
   seems to have misplaced it. She asks him about Quentin's past. She asks 
   what he knew about Quentin when they were on the ship together, about
   whether Quentin practiced the occult then. He replies that they were both
   interested in it, but neither of them practiced it. He asks why she asks.
   She tells him she thinks Quentin has changed lately. Daphne walks into the
   drawing room.  Angelique leaves.  Gerard complains to Daphne that everyone
   in the house hates him now. She comforts him. They nearly kiss, but
   Daphne pulls away at the last moment. Gerard leaves. She wonders why she
   did this. She finds another letter addressed to her on the table. She
   opens it and reads it. It says, "I am coming for you now. Please don't
   be afraid. What I am about to do I do because I love you". It is signed
   "Your loving sister, Joanna". The front doors blow open. Daphne goes into
   the foyer and shuts them. When she turns back around, she sees a black
   cape lying on the floor. She picks it up and gasps, "Joanna's cape!" and
   screams, "Joanna, where are you?." She hears a noise coming from the
   landing. She looks up and  sees a shadowy figure standing there.
   Frightened, she runs into the drawing room and closes the doors.

      Daphne cowers in the drawing room. The door knobs turn, and the doors
   start to open. A woman walks in. It's Samantha. She asks Daphne what's
   wrong, saying she heard her screaming all the way from upstairs. Daphne
   replies that someone came into the house, that she found a cape out in the
   foyer. She goes out to the foyer to show her, but there's no cape there.
   They go back into the drawing room. Samantha tells Daphne she must have
   been frightened by her own imagination and tells her she doesn't think
   she's a fit governess for Tad, that her husband hired her just for her
   pretty face. Suddenly, Samantha gasps, "Oh my God!" and points toward
   the drapes.  Daphne asks her what's the matter.  Samantha tells her she saw
   a figure by the drapes, that it just disappeared.  Daphne asks, "What did
   she look like?"  Samantha asks,"How did you know it was a she?" and
   accuses Daphne of knowing all about the evil spirit, that she was
   responsible for bring it into the house, that it was what she must have
   seen earlier but kept secret.
      At the jail, Desmond tells Quentin that Judge Vail has denied his
   request to have the charges dropped. He adds that the prosecutor, Amos
   Fuller, has resigned. Quentin asks, "Who will be prosecutor,then?"
   Desmond replies that a new one hasn't be appointed yet, but that he fears
   it might be Lamar Trask. Quentin assures him the court would never allow
      At Collinwood, Tad tells Samantha he's worried about the trial tomorrow
   and begs her to testify on Quentin's behalf. She tells him she'll do what
   she must do. Desmond comes. Samantha asks Tad to go upstairs. He does.
   She tells Desmond she'd like to take Tad away. He reminds her that if she
   does, Tad won't get his inheritance when he turns 21.
      Daphne goes to visit Quentin in jail. He notices that something is
   wrong and asks her what it is. She is reluctant to tell him, but he
   presses her and she tells him,"Joanna has returned from the grave!"  He
   asks her what she means.  She reluctantly shows him the letter.  Quentin
   remarks, "Joanna would never do this!"  She tells him what happened.
   Quentin asks, "Did you see her?"  Daphne replies that she didn't, but
   tells him that Samantha saw something.
      The trial begins. Desmond tells the tribunal of three judges overseeing
   the case that he has learned why Amos Fuller has resigned as prosecutor,
   because he thought this trial was ridiculous, and asks that this fact
   be entered into the official record to show that there is at least one
   voice of sanity.  Judge Vail, the leading judge, allows this.  The judge
   tells Desmond that a new prosecutor has been appointed and that he should
   be here any minute. The door opens and the new prosecutor comes in and
   walks to the prosecuting attorney's table.  It is Charles Dawson.  Desmond
   and Quentin are shocked.  Desmond objects, saying according to law, the
   prosecutor must be a resident of Collinsport. Dawson replies that he is,
   as of last week.  Desmond objects, "According to law, the prosecutor must
   have been a resident for at least 3 calendar months". The judge replies
   that that is the case in a regular trial, but that this is not a regular
   trial and overrules his objection.  Dawson goes to Quentin and explains
   that he accepted the job because someone's going to do it whether it's
   him or someone else, and that he accepted to make sure he gets a fair
   trial. Quentin believes this.  Desmond is skeptical, telling Quentin he
   doesn't trust Gerard and is suspicious of his friend Dawson.
      Charles Dawson gives his opening statements. He recounts how mysterious
   incidents have been going on in Collinsport and tells the court the he
   will prove that Quentin Collins is responsible for them, that Quentin
   will be found guilty and given the punishment proscribed by law,
   beheading. Quentin, shocked by the vehemence of Dawson's opening statement,
   whispers to Desmond he's going to talk to Gerard about this.
      Dawson continues, telling the court that he had planned to call as
   his first witness Lamar Trask, but that a new witness has stepped forward.
   He calls to the witness stand Samantha Collins.  Desmond, shocked, objects,
   saying a wife cannot testify against a husband.  Judge Vail once again
   overrules his objection, saying again that this is not a regular trial and
   the regular rules don't apply.
      Samantha testifies that Quentin has brought into the house an evil
   spirit, that she's seen it.  Desmond dismisses it as a figment of her
   imagination.  Samantha shouts, "I'm not the only one who's seen it.
   She knows all about it!", pointing to Daphne...

      To prove this, Dawson pulls out a book and identifies it as the diary
   of Quentin Collins. He opens it to a page, gives it to Samantha and asks
   her to read it to the court. Samantha reads out an entry in which Quentin
   writes about having the seance with Daphne where they attempted to reach
   Joanna.  Dawson calls Daphne to the witness stand for questioning. Desmond
   objects, saying he has the right to cross examine Samantha. Judge Vail
   tells him he'll get a chance to do that later. Desmond objects that
   according to law, he has the right to do so NOW. The Judge once again
   tells him that the rules governing a regular trial don't hold here and
   orders Daphne to the witness stand.  Daphne refuses, telling the court
   that she won't be a witness against Quentin because she believes him
   innocent. Judge Vail tells her she must, stating again that the rules for
   a Witchcraft tribunal are different from those for a regular trial and
   that she does not have the right of refusal that she would have in a
   regular trial. Daphne reluctantly takes the witness stand and recounts
   the seance.  Desmond goes to cross-examine Daphne, telling the court,
   "I will establish what my opponent has not, the PURPOSE of this seance."
   He questions Daphne and gets her to tell the court that strange things
   had been happening in the house and Quentin was holding the seance to
   try to stop them.
      Daphne having been questioned, Desmond finally gets to call Samantha
   to the witness stand for cross-examination. He asks her why she thinks
   Quentin would want to summon the spirit of Joanna Mills. Samantha replies
   that Joanna was his mistress, that she would not give him a divorce and
   let them marry so he has now summoned up her spirit to haunt her. Desmond
   asks that Samantha's testimony be stricken because her last remarks prove
   that she is prejudiced against Quentin and cannot be an unbiased witness.
   The court agrees.  Judge Vail adjourns the trial till 10:00 in the morning
   next Monday.
      Daphne returns to Collinwood. She finds Samantha already there in the
   drawing room.  Samantha asks, "What took you so long getting back here?"
   and remarks that she must've gone to visit Quentin in jail.  She accuses
   Daphne of being in love with Quentin and tells her, "You're wasting your
   time. Quentin will be found guilty, then he'll die!"  Daphne remonstrates
   Samantha for testifying against Quentin, asking "What would Tad think?"
   Samanthat tells her Tad will never find out and fires her.
      Desmond is talking to Quentin at his cell. Quentin congratulates him
   on getting Samantha's testimony disallowed.  Desmond replies that it's too
   early for congratulations, that there are still many witnesses to come.
   He tells Quentin that the way Dawson "crucified" him on behalf of Gerard
   proves that he can't trust Gerard.  Quentin replies that he would like to
   give Gerard the benefit of a doubt and would like to speak to him first
   before condemning him.  Samantha comes in.  Desmond leaves to let them
   speak in private.  Samantha tells Quentin she has fired Daphne.  Quentin
   is furious and tells her she has no right to do that.  She tells him he's
   no longer master of Collinwood and can't stop her.
      At Collinwood, Daphne dozes off and has another dream, a continuation
   of the one she had earlier. She is one again in her "bridal" room. Her
   wedding gown lies on a chair. She starts to talk to Gerard, but looks
   around and finds that he's not in the room.  She leaves to find him.
      Daphne awakens and once again finds that she has had yet another
   disturbing dream she cannot remember. She thinks and finds that she can
   remember a room in the dream she has never seen before. She gets up and
   goes to search for it. She finds herself drawn to an unused room of the
   house and to a certain door. She opens a door and finds a room that looks
   just for the one in the dream. She looks on the chair and sees a wedding
   gown lying on it, just like in the dream...

      Daphne, still unable to remember the dream, thinks to herself, "Where
   have I seen this dress before?"  Carrie walks into the room and seeing
   Daphne in there, remarks, "So, you like to explore the house too!"  She
   sees the wedding dress, picks it up and asks, "What's this doing here?"
   Daphne tells her to put down, saying,  "It's probably been here for years".
   Carrie, puzzled, replies, "But it looks like it's in style". Daphne says,
   "Let's leave". Carrie remarks that she's got the strange feeling that
   something important is going to happen in this room.  Daphne replies that
   that's just her imagination and they leave. Gerard comes out ot the
   shadows of an adjoining room, picks up the dress and smiles.
      Trask and Gerard are discussing the trial. Trask complains that the
   people are getting restless and they've got to find a way to end it
   quicker. He suggests to Gerard that he talk to his friend Dawson about
   this. Gerard replies that he has no influence on Dawson, that he had
   nothing to do with his being appointed as prosecutor. Trask remarks that
   Quentin should not be alone in the accused's box, that there is another
   who should be there with him, Barnabas Collins. Gerard protests that
   there's no case against him.  Trask agrees, but says he still thinks he
   had something to do with Roxanne becoming a vampire.  Gerard remarks, "But
   in order to turn someone into a vampire, a vampire is required, and we
   know Quentin isn't a vampire."  Trask replies, "Well, maybe Barnabas is..."
   Gerard suggests that they talk to Flora about this, that she's writing
   a book on vampirism and has done a lot of research into old documents.
   Without mentioning any names, of course. Trask leaves. Daphne walks into
   the drawing room. Seeing Gerard, she remarks, "Oh. I didn't know you were
   in here. I find it hard to stay in the same room with you after hearing
   your friend Charles Dawson tried to do to Quentin in court." and turns
   to leave.  Gerard stops her and tells her he has nothing to do with
   Dawson's actions, that in fact when he heard he was going to be appointed
   prosecutor, he begged Dawson not to take the position, to no avail. He
   concludes by saying, "Charles Dawson is no longer my friend". Daphne
   apparently believes this, and her expression softens. Gerard asks, "Why
   didn't you tell me you saw Joanna's ghost?  Why don't you trust me?" and
   again offers to help her in any way possible. He sweet talks her, then
   they kiss...
      Jeremy is at Rose Cottage, doing Flora's accounts. Flora remarks on his
   talents as an accountant and how glad she is to have him working for her
   part time.  She remarks on how glad she is that he is so very different
   from his father, then realizing that what she said could be interpreted as
   an insult, apologizes for being too blunt. He tells her that he doesn't
   take it as an insult.  He asks her about Carrie, asking if she thinks
   Carrie is too young to court. Flora replies that he'd have to talk to
   her sponsor Quentin about that. Jeremy replies that he couln't possibly
   ask Quentin, being the son of Mordecai Grimes.  Flora suggests he talk to
   Gerard, who is now master of Collinwood.  Jeremy broadly hints, "Don't you
   have an errand for me to run?"  Flora, puzzled, replies, "No, I don't
   think so..."  Jeremy continues,"You know, an errand to Collinwood?".
   Flora, now getting the hint, replies, "Of course!  How could I have
   forgotten!" and gives him some books, telling him to take them to
      Geard and Trask come to Rose Cottage and ask Flora about her research
   into vampirism. Flora tells her that she's gone through some old
   newspapers and found that this is not the first time there have been
   vampire attacks before, although they didn't know what was going on at
   the time, that there were vampiere attacks in Collinsport starting in the
   fall of the year 1796 and lasting six months. Trask remarks, "That's the
   time my father came here to investigate and disappeared..." Gerard asks,
   "Who lived at Collinwood at that time?"  Flora replies, "Daniel was a
   child at that time and lived there.  Ben Stokes was here too, and so was
   Barnabas' father".  Gerard remarks to Trask, "If only Daniel were still
   alive, he could tell us about what happened back then, or Ben..."
      Carrie is in the drawing room. She is surprised when someone comes up
   behind her and puts his hands over her eyes. She is delighted when she
   turns around and finds it's Jeremy Grimes. She remarks, "Your father
   would furious if he found out you were here."  He replies, "He'll never
   find out, then". They hear then front door, then the  voices of Gerard
   and Trask outside in the foyer.  Carrie gasps, "Oh no! Trask! If he sees
   you here he'll tell you father!  Hide!". Jeremy hides behind the curtains.
   Gerard and Trask come in. Gerard asks Carrie where Ben's belongings are,
   saying there's some books he'd like to borrow. Seeing that she appears
   nervous, he asks what's wrong.  She explains that she's still upset about
   her grandfather's death and still gets upset when his name is mentioned.
   She tells him Ben's things are still in his room.  Gerard and Trask leave.
   Jeremy comes out from behind the curtains.  Carrie tells her he's got to
   leave, that Gerard and Trask will be coming back down any moment now.
   He leaves, telling her to meet him later.
      It is 2:34. Gerard and Trask come downstairs into the foyer. Trask
   holding a book, remarks, "I'm surprised Ben kept a diary". Gerard corrects
   him, saying,"Not a diary, a journal, written long after the fact".  He
   looks at the portrait of Barnabas and remarks that Barnabas sure looks a
   lot like his father.  Trask replies,"If he is a vampire, then it IS him.
   Vampires live forever".  Gerard remarks, "But we've looked all through
   Ben's journal and there's nothing in there that would indicate that he is
   a vampire."  Trask replies that Ben was Barnabas' loyal servant and would
   not knowingly write in the journal that he was a vampire and risk someone
   finding out, but might say something by accident.  He tells him he's found
   an entry that seems to do this.  He reads an entry that says, "On the day
   after I testified in the Witchcraft trial, Reverend Trask made the mistake
   of learning about the secret in the basement of the Old House..." He tells
   him about the sounds he heard in the basement and tells him he now
   suspects it was the spirit of his father trying to communicate with him.
   They decide to go to the old house to investigate.
      Gerard and Trask go to the basement of the old house and tear down the
   wall behind which Trask heard the sounds. They find a chained skeleton
   behind the wall. Trask exclaims,"My father!  What a horrible way to die!".
   Gerard remarks, "We're not sure it's your father.  We'll have to find
   proof of that". He goes throuh the pockets of the clothes worn by the
   skeleton and finds a folded note. He gives it to Trask. Trask starts to
   open it...

      Trask reads the note aloud. It says, "If you want to find out who's
   responsible for all the attacks, go look in the basement of the old
   house during the daytime. Do not let Ben Stokes stop you from seeing the
   master of the house else he will live forever to continue the attacks.".
   Trask remarks that the "original" Barnabas Collins was the master of the 
   old house at the time. The note is signed "A". Trask looks at the date 
   and sees that it bears the date just before the date his father 
   disappeared. He remarks that the note, though cryptic, proves to his
   satisfaction that Barnabas is a vampire.  He adds that he's just realized
   that they've never seen Barnabas during the daytime, that he did not attend
   Daniel's funeral, that he didn't even attend Roxanne's funeral though he
   loved her. They turn to leave, but Gerard exclaims, "Wait!  We can't leave
   the wall like that!". They pull a heavy bureau over to cover the hole in
   the wall.
      Upstairs, Barnabas comes out of his coffin in the secret room behind
   the bookcase.
      Gerard and Trask start up the stairs but stop when they hear Barnabas'
   voice asking,"There's hope?".  They then hear Julia's voice reply, "Yes,
   there's hope".  She tells him that the trial has been going well so far,
   that Desmond has made some brilliant legal moves.  They then discuss
   briefly whethere their suspicions about Gerard might be right.  Barnabas
   then tells Julia, "I'm goint to town to see Quentin.  Do you want to come
   with me?". Julia replies that she can't, that she has to go to
   Collinwood. They leave. Trask asks Gerard, "I wonder what they suspect
   you of?"  Gerard deflects the question by saying he doesn't know, but
   they've got more important things to do than try to find out.
      Gerard returns to Collinwood. Carrie confronts him and demands, "Did
   you and Mr.Trask take my grandfather's diary?"  Gerard replies that they
   did. Carrie, clearly upset, asks, "Why didn't you ask me first?"  Gerard
   replies that they tried to find her but couldn't. Carrie demands to know
   why they took it. Gerard lies that Flora is writing a book and needed it
   for research.  Carrie angrily tells him that a diary is personal and they
   had no right to take it.  She demands he give it back to her.  He tells her
   it doesn't have it.  She asks, "Does Flora have it, then?"  He answers that
   she does.  She asks him to go get it.  He tells her he doesn't have the time
   to do that right now.  She tells him she'll go get it herself, then.  He
   yells, "NO! IT'S TOO LATE FOR YOU TO GO OUT!"  Shocked at his yelling
   at her, she asks, "What's happened to you Gerard?  You've been acting so
   differently lately. You never would've screamed at me before...". He
   apoligizes and tells her he's been acting strangely because of the stress
   of all that's happened lately, Quentin's being arrested and him being
   named heir in the will. She tells him, "But you started acting differently
   before all that!"  He tells her it must have been her imagination and
   leaves.  Carrie thinks to herself, "Oh, Gerard, please be like you were
   before. I used to like you so much...."
      Julia walks into the drawing room and finds Carrie sitting alone in
   there. She asks her, "What's wrong? I can see from the expression on your
   face that something is.". Carrie tells her that she's upset because
   Gerard seems to have changed recently. She tells her that she found out
   that Gerard had go to Ben's room and taken something without asking her,
   and that when she had confronted him about it, he lied that he tried to
   find her and ask her but couldn't, but that she know he was lying because
   she was in the house the whole time.  Julia asks, "What did he take?".
   Carrie replies, "My grandfather's diary".  Julia abruptly excuses herself
   and leaves.
      Julia goes to the old house and tells Barnabas, who's returned from
   town, about Gerard taking Ben's diary.  Julia is worried about what Ben
   wrote in his diary.  Barnabas assures her that Ben was too loyal to him
   to ever write anything down to reveal his secret knowing that it might
   fall into the wrong hands, but Julia tells him that Ben might have
   ACCIDENTLY let something slip out and begs him to leave Collinsport.
   Barnabas refuses, saying they have things to do here. Julia tells him to
   leave and let her take care of things. He refuses, saying he'd never leave
   her here alone. Julia asks, "But Barnabas, what are we going to do?"
     The clock in the foyer at Collinwood strikes 1:30. Trask comes in and
   finds Gerard in the foyer.  Trask pulls out a pistol.  Gerard asks, "Is it
   loaded with silver bullets?"  Trask replies that it is and gives it to
   him. Gerard asks him why he's giving it to him. Trask tells him that he's
   going to have to testify at the trial tomorrow and that therefore he,
   Gerard, will have to be the one who destroys Barnabas tomorrow. Gerard
   protests, "Ah, but you've forgotten one thing. We don't know where his
   hiding place is."  Trask replies, "You'll have to look for it. We know
   one thing. It isn't in the old house.  We searched it from top to bottom."
   Gerard remarks, "Did you ever consider that it might be in a secret room
   in the old house?"  Trask answers,"If that's so, how would we ever find
   it?  Ben's diary didn't mention any secret hiding room". Gerard smiles and
   replies, "You would look in the archtect's original plans. I did, and I
   found it. Tomorrow, I'll go into the drawing room of the old house, pull
   open the bookcase and find Barnabas Collins sleepling behind it..."
      It is the next day. Julia is at the old house. There's a knock at the
   door. Julia goes to the door and opens it. It's Gerard. He forces his way
   in, holding the gun  Julia asks him what he wants. He announces, "I came
   here to look!". Julia asks "Look for what?". He replies, "You know, but if
   you want to continue your game and pretend that you don't, go ahead."
   Holding the gun on her, he walks over to the bookcase and reaches out for
   it, but is startled to hear a male voice call out, "Gerard!  What do you
   want? A book? Perhaps I could help you."  He looks over toward the
   direction from which the voice came and is shocked to see Barnabas
   standing on the stairs. He gasps,"Barnabas! But it's daylight!"  Barnabas
   nonchalently replies, "Of course it is. What do you expect at 2 o'clock
   in the afternoon?  Now if you would tell me the name of the book you want,
   perhaps I could help you find it. What DO you want, Gerard?"

      Gerard gasps,"I can't believe it! You're standing here in front of me
   in broad daylight!"  Barnabas replies, "What's so strange about that?
   What are you talking about, Gerard?". Gerard replies,"Vampirism, that's
   what!"  Barnabas acts puzzled and asks, "Vampirism? What makes you think
   I'm a vampire?". Gerard continues, "I know you are. I don't know what
   you've done, but...". Angelique comes down the stairs, sees Gerard and
   says, "Hello, Gerard..". Gerard, realizing what must have happened,
   leaves. Barnabas asks Angelique what she wants in excange for her help.
   Angelique replies that she wants nothing. Julia is skeptical and remarks
   that she doesn't believe this, that she's never done anything out of
   altruism before and she doesn't believe she would this time. Angelique
   swears that she helped Barnabas out of love and expects nothing in return.
   Barnabas thanks Julia for warning him about Gerard, saying that if she
   hadn't, he'd be lying in his coffin now, dead forever. He asks her to
   leave so that he may speak to Angelique in private. Julia leaves. Barnabas
   asks Angelique,"Now that Julia is gone, you can tell me the truth. What
   do you want in return for lifting the curse?". Angelique again says that
   she expects nothing in return. She tells him she loves him so much that
   she would rather see him out from under her control than destroyed. She
   tells him everything she's done she's done to try to make him love her,
   that all she has ever wanted was for him to love her, but that nothing 
   has worked, so she now releases him.  Barnabas tells her, "I'm sorry, but
   you can't will love...".  Barnabas asks Angelique if the lifting of the
   curse is permanent.  Angelique pauses for a long time and replies, "Yes.
   It is".  She asks him to hold her, saying she's worried about him because
   he's now a normal man and can be harmed or killed like a normal man, and
   he has enemies to worry about. He hugs her. He tells her that for the first
   time since she came from Martenique, he understands her.
      Barnabas goes to Collinwood and talks to Julia in the drawing room.
   She warns him against trusting Angelique and blurts out, "Barnabas, I 
   care for you too much...", then abruptly stops and rephrases herself,
   "You're too good a friend of mine for me to see you hurt...". Barnabas,
   looking uncomfortable, excuses himself, saying he'd like to take a walk 
   in the sunlight.  
      The clock in the foyer shows 4:50. Julia goes into the foyer and runs
   into Gerard there. Gerard asks, "When was the last time you saw your 
   brother in the sunlight?"  Julia replies, "About a half an hour ago".
   Gerard asks, "And before that?"  Julia replies, "I see him in the daylight
   every day". Gerard remarks,"Then you're the only one."  He goes to the
   portrait and asks, "Who's that?". Julia replies, "You know. It's the
   original Barnabas Collins, mine and Barnabas' father.". Gerard remarks,
   "I don't believe that. I believe that it's Barnabas himself, that he's
   a vampire and has survived unchanged all these years.". Julia nonchalently
   replies, "You know, I'm worried about you, Gerard. You seem to have
   become caught up in all the hysteria that's been going around" and leaves.
   Gabriel comes in and asks Gerard for his check. Gerard reaches into his
   pocket, takes out a check and gives it to him. Gabriel looks at it and
   complain,"This is only half of what I'm supposed to get!". Gerard replies,
   "This trial is taking quite a drain on the family finances.  While it's
   going on, you and everyone else is going to get only half of your
   allowance" and leaves.  Gabriel rolls into the drawing room, angrily wads
   up the check and throws it into the fire.
      Angelique is sitting at a desk in the drawing room of the old house
   writing something with a quill pen. Barnabas, having finished his walk,
   returns to the old house. He remarks to Angelique how beautiful everthing
   is in the daylight and how happy he is. He sees Angelique writing and
   remarks, "You're busy today, aren't you?  What are you doing?". Angelique
   replies, "I'm writing a note to Charles Dawson. He's asked me to testify
   at the trial."  Barnabas asks, "You're not going to do it, are you?"
   Angelique replies that she is. Barnabas, shocked, exclaims, "But he's the
   prosecutor. That means he wants you to testify AGAINST Quentin!
   You can't!  Quentin is innocent!" Angelique replies, "NO! Quentin is
   possessed by the spirit of Judah Zachary and must never be released!".
   Barnabas, surprised at the mention of the name, asks, "How do you know
   about Judah Zachary?" Angelique laughs and remarks, "You've known me all
   these years and never knew how I became what I am!" She recounts to
   him the story of how she was once a member of Zachary's coven but turned
   on him and testified against him at his trial and was responsible for
   having him found guilty and executed.  Barnabas remarks, "Then you're the
   'Miranda' they talked about in the newspapers!". Angelique replies that
   she is, that after the trial, she was relocated to the West Indies, to
   Martenique, as part of the deal for testifying. Barnabas asks her, "Why
   do you think Quentin has been possessed by Judah Zachary?"  Angelique
   tells him she first thought Gerard was Judah Zachary because he called
   her "Miranda", but that he came up with an explanation for this. He tells
   her how she cast a spell to find out who had been possessed by Judah
   Zachary and found out it was Quentin.  Barnabas tells her she must have
   been tricked, that it is Gerard and not Quentin who has been possessed by
   Judah Zachary. She asks him how he can be so sure. He replies that he's
   from the future, and in the future, Collinwood has been destroyed, and is
   haunted by the ghost of the man who destroyed it, Gerard. Angelique tells
   Barnabas that she is totally confused now and asks him what she should do.
   He asks her not to testify against Quentin. She agrees not to.
      Julia goes into the drawing room and finds Gabriel in there, very
   upset. She gives him a drink.  He vows, "I will break the will!"  He hears
   Daniel's voice saying "Do not try! Do not try!"  Frightened, he asks
   Julia, "Did you hear that?". Julia, puzzled, replies, "Hear what?" and
      Gabriel goes to his room. The window blows open and Daniel's ghost
   appears. He drones, "Murderer!  You killed me!". Gabriel whines, "NO!
   It was Gerard!  He maneuvered me into doing what I did!". But Daniel's
   ghost apparently does not accept his excuse and continues, "Beware!
   I will haunt you, and I will kill you as you did me!". Gabriel begs,
   "NO! It wasn't me, it was Gerard!", but Daniels ghost just disappears.
   Gabriel angrily exclaims, "Gerard!  I'll make sure you never hurt me
      Gerard is in the drawing room of Collinwood, engrossed in analyzing a
   chess position.  Behind him, the secret panel to the right of the fireplace
   opens, and Gabriel WALKS out into the drawing room.  He quietly sneaks up
   behind Gerard and knocks him out with a blow to the head. He then takes a
   cord out from under his coat, wraps it around Gerard's neck and starts to
   strangle him...

      Gabriel, strangling Gerard, hears the front door open and Leticia's
   voice calling "Is anyone home?". He quickly runs over to the the window
   and hides behind the curtains. Leticia comes into the drawing room and
   finds Gerard lying on the floor unconscious. She hears a noise coming
   from the direction of the window. She goes there and finds the window 
   open. Gabriel is hiding just outside. Leticia is about to look outside,
   but she hears Gerard regain consciousness and start to moan. She quickly
   goes to him and asks "What happened?". Gerard takes the cord from around
   his neck, looks at it and says, "Someone tried to kill me!  I didn't see
   who it was."  Leticia points out the open window to him and remarks,"I
   think he came in through there".  Gerard looks around, sees the open
   secret panel next to the fireplace and, getting it backwards, concludes, 
   "And I think he went out through there..."  He goes in there to search.
   Leticia screams, "You're not leaving me here alone!" and runs in after 
   him. Gabriel comes back into the drawing room through the window.
      Gabriel and Leticia wander through the secret passages, trying to
   find the attacker. Leticia remarks, "They go on forever, don't they..."
      Gabirel, now back in his wheelchair, rolls into the foyer and runs 
   into Carrie in there. He notices her staring at him and asks, "What are
   you gaping at?". She replies, "Your shoes! They're muddy! How did that
   happen?"  Gabriel looks at his shoes, notices that they are muddy, and
   lies, "A clumsy servant was carrying me out of a carriage and dropped
   my legs onto the ground."  Carrie is satisfied with this explanation and
   goes upstairs.
      Gerard and Leticia, not having found anything, come back out of the
   secret passage into the drawing room and see Gabriel there. Gabriel sees
   them coming out of the secret panel and sarcastically remarks, "Surveying
   your domain, Gerard?"  Leticia exclaims,"There's a murderer in this house!
   Someone tried to kill Gerard!"  Gabriel looks at Gerard and sarcastically,
   remarks "Really? I didn't think you had any enemies.". Gerard asks, "I
   think he escaped through here. Did you know there was a secret passage
   here?". Gabriel replies, "Yes. We all used to play in there when we were
   children.  Does that make me a suspect?". Gerard replies that he would
   suspect him if it were not for the fact that he could not walk. Leticia,
   surprised at Gabriel's nonchalence, asks him how he can be so calm when
   someone has just tried to murder Gerard.  Gabriel replies, "As long as
   it's not me.." and rolls off. Leticia asks Gerard, "Aren't you going to
   call the police?"  Gerard replies, "No. I'll take care of it myself."  He
   asks, "Why did you come here in the first place?". Leticia replies, "I came
   here to deliver a message from Desmond. He wants to know why you ignored
   Quentin's note requesting that you go and see him. He says that Quentin
   is very upset."  Gerard makes some excuse about having been busy and
   tells her he'll go see Quentin right away.
      Gabriel visits Quentin in jail and tells him they've got to find a
   way to break the will, saying he doesn't trust Gerard and fears that
   Tad will not live till his 21st birthday to get his inheritance. Quentin
   replies that he's come to have some reservations about Gerard too, but
   will have to talk to him first before coming to any conclusions.
      Daphne walks into the drawing room and finds Carrie in there drawing
   a sketch of Jeremy. She remarks, "That must be Jeremy Grimes". Carrie,
   shocked, asks how she knew about Jeremy. Daphne replies that Tad told her.
   Carrie, upset that Tad told her something she had told him in confidence,
   begs Daphne not to tell anyone about this, saying that if Jeremy's father
   Mordecai learns that his son has been coming to Collinwood, he'll become
   furious and disown him. Daphne promises she won't and remarks, "Yes.
   Mordecai Grimes does seem to be part of the general hysteria going around.
   I wonder if with all this hysteria Quentin can get a fair trial..."
      Gerard visits Quentin in jail. Quentin angrily demands to know why
   his friend Charles Dawson is trying to crucify him in court. Gerard tells
   him Dawson is now a former friend, that when he found out he was going to
   be the prosecutor, he begged him not to accept the job, but that Dawson
   refused, that he wanted to make a name for himself, even if was to be
   at Quentin's expense. He tells Quentin he severed their friendship then
   and there. He again assures Quentin that he only considers himself the
   caretaker of the Collins fortune, and nothing will make him happier than
   to give it back to him when he is found innocent and released. He then
   tells Quentin that it appears they have a common enemy. He tells him about
   the attack and tells him he thinks it's the same person who's trying to
   frame him. Quentin asks, "Is Daphne still receiving those mysterious
   letters?" Gerard replies that she has. Quentin remarks, "You know, every-
   thing started about the same time I started to receive those mysterious
   letters. I think the same person is responsible for everything."  Gerard
   thinks and then says, "Do you remember that there was a pattern to the
   notes you received? Perhaps there's one to the one's Daphne's receiving
   too. Perhaps I can find out what it is and find out who's been writing
   these letters.."
      Daphne walks downstairs into the foyer and is startled to smell
   Joanna's perfume in the air. The strains of Joanna's music then start to
   come from inside the drawing room, the doors of which are closed. She
   goes and opens the door, but finds that it's only Leticia and Carrie in
   there. Leticia is playing the piano, apparently playing what sheet music
   was already there. Daphne asks, "Has there been anyone else around here
   recently, in the last few minutes?"  Leticia replies, "No. Just me and
   Carrie. Why?"  Daphne replies, "Oh nothing. I just thought I smelled
   something familiar".  She asks Carrie to let her speak to Leticia in
   private.  Carrie leaves. Daphne tells Leticia she's heard about her
   second sight and asks her to help her. She tells her she wants to know
   if there's a spirit in the house. Leticia closes her eyes and uses her
   second sight. She concentrates for a while then tells Daphne, "No. I
   don't feel anything. There's no spirit in the house".  Then suddenly,
   a strange look comes across her face and she gasps, "Something has
   happened! I can feel the vibrations!  Yes, there IS a spirit somewhere in
   the house now. An evil spirit!"  Out in the foyer, Gerard has just entered
   through the front door. Obviously, the evil spirit is him. He listens and
   hears Daphne saying, "Where is the spirit?"  He is relieved to hear
   Leticia reply, "I don't know. It wasn't here a minute ago, but it's
   somewhere in the house right now". Gerard rushes into the drawing room
   and tells them it must be Joanna somewhere.  Daphne, upset, walks out into
   the foyer. There, she exclaims that there's another letter for her on the
   table. Gerard and Leticia quickly rush into the foyer. Gerard takes the
   letter and reads it out loud. It says, "Tonight I will come. Tonight I
   will succeed!"  Leticia asks what it means.  Daphne fearfully explains that
   the spirit of her sister is going to come and kill her tonight. Leticia
   tells her to come stay with her at Rose Cottage tonight. Daphne replies
   that she can't, that she's alone here tonight with the children and has
   to stay. Gerard remarks, "Hmmm.  Whoever wrote this seems to have known
   that you would be alone.  Let's see if we can find out who it is..."
      It is the middle of the night. A cloaked figure sneaks into Daphne's
   room. It goes to the bed, where a figure lies sleeping, raises a knife
   and prepares to strike.  Suddenly, the sleeper sits up and grabs the
   hand holding the knife.  The person in bed is revealed to be not Daphne,
   but Gerard. He looks at the attacker and exclaims, "It's you! It's really

      Gerard exclaims, "It's you! I knew it would be you!". The attacker is
   Samantha.  Gerard disarms her and orders her to "Tell me what you've been
   doing. Tell me it all!  Tell me about then notes!". Samantha denies
   having written any notes. Gerard tells her he knew she was behind
   everything after she tried to kill him yesterday when he asked himself
   who it might be. She denies having tried to kill him and refuses to tell
   him anything. He threatens to go to the police if she doesn't and charge
   her with attempted murder. She exclaims that she wasn't trying to kill
   Daphne, just scare her into leaving Collinwood.  He remarks, "You're going
   to be very useful go me!" and asks that she tell him everything she knows
   about the notes and Joanna. She still refuses. He again threatens to go
   to the authorities. He tells her he'll give her a little time to think
   about it.
     Trask, having received a note requesting him to come to Rose Cottage
   from Flora, goes to Rose Cottage. Flora asks him about the results of his
   investigation. Trask tells him that their suspicions about Barnabas being
   a vampire turned out to be wrong. She remarks, "You look upset". He tells
   her about finding his father walled up in the basement of the old house.
   He tells her that he's certain Barnabas Collins' father did it. Flora
   defends Barnabas, saying there's no proof he did it, and anyway, you can't
   blame him for the misdeeds of his father. Trask blows up, shouting, "YOU
   CALL COLD-BLOODED MURDER A 'MISDEED'?!". He reprimands her for her
   interest in the occult.  He decries the fact that her son Desmond is
   defending Quentin the warlock. He tells her he finds the whole Collins
   family suspicious.
      In Daphne's room at Collinwood, Samantha learns that Gerard too is
   'against Quentin', but tell him she refuses to help him because if he's
   against Quentin, he's probably against Tad, too. Gerald tells her he isn't,
   that he loves Tad and is only against Quentin. She starts to talk. She
   tells him about Joanna, about how she was Randall's girlfriend, how
   Quentin met her, became entranced with her and stole her from Randall,
   how Quentin had asked her for a divorce, how he eventually broke up with
   Joanna after she refused to give him one. She recounts that Joanna went
   crazy and was put in an asylum after Quentin left her.  She tells him she
   learned of this when Joanna took a turn for the worse and a message was
   sent to Collinwood telling Quentin about this, but that she intercepted
   the message and Quentin did not find out.  She tells him that Joanna
   eventually escaped from the asylum and committed suicide, and that all
   her effects were sent to Collinwood, that they came when Quentin was not
   home and she had them secretly put in a room. She tells him that Joanna
   had been writing letters to Quentin while in prison, letters the doctors
   didn't mail, and that these were among her effects. She explains that
   these were the letters she was sending to Quentin at first, but that she
   eventually learned to forge Joanna's handwriting and then wrote new
   letters to Quentin. She tells him that when she found out that Daphne was
   Joanna's sister, she started writing letters to her as well. Gerard is
   shocked to learn that Daphne is Joanna's sister. Gerard orders Samantha
   to keep writing the letters to Daphne.
      Later, Gerard is talking with Trask. Trask tells Gerard he has a plan
   against Barnabas. He tells him that he's learned that Flora has invited
   Barnabas to dinner at Rose Cottage tonight. Gerard remarks that he's been
   invited too. Trask replies,"Good. I wanted you to be there". He tells him
   to tell Barnabas that he, Trask has been seeing Roxanne's ghost in the
   cellar of his funerary chapel every night at midnight for the last three
   nights. Gerard replies, "I can't do that. If I tell him, he'll be
   suspicious. Remember, I accused him of being a vampire. But I think I
   can trick Flora into telling him. What are you planning to do?"  Trask
   replies, "It is the duty of a son to avenge his father's death, even it
   that act must be carried to the next generation..."
      Dinner at Rose Cottage is over.  Flora, Gerard and Barnabas retire to
   the drawing room. Gerard excuses himself and leaves. Flora tells Barnabas
   she'd like to apologize to him.  Barnabas asks for what. She replies, "for
   suspecting you". She tells him how she started suspecting him at the
   seance, when she thought he had deliberately broken the circle to prevent
   Roxanne from telling who made her into a vampire, that she had learned
   of similar attacks in 1797 and had suspected HIM of being a vampire, of
   being the same man as his father and having committed both the recent
   attacks and those 40 years ago. She tells him she now knows that her
   suspicions are unfounded. She goes on to say, "All this has had quite an
   effect on Trask.  He's now claiming to have seen Roxanne's ghost at
   midnight for three nights in a row in the cellar of his funerary chapel.
   I told him I'd like to go and see, that I had some questions I'd like to
   ask her, but he warned me not to go, saying it's too dangerous and even he
   doesn't go there anymore."
      Barnabas takes the bait and goes to the cellar of the Trask's chapel. He
   calls out "Trask?", but receives no answer and sees no one. He then calls
   out, "Roxanne?  Where are you?". Trask steps of from behind a column and
   points a gun at him.  Barnabas exclaims, "So it's a trap!"  Trask replies
   "Yes, it's a trap".  Barnabas asks, "What do you want?"  Trask replies,
   "I didn't think you'd need to ask that. Look at the wall behind you."
   Barnabas turns around and sees that there's a niche in the wall with
   a large pile of bricks next to it.  Trask tells him, "I want revenge for
   my father. I plan to wall you up as he was walled up!"  Barnabas remarks,
   "Don't think you can get away with this!"  Trask replies, "Considering
   how long it was before my father was discovered, I think I can!"  He
   orders Barnabas to step into the niche and chain himself in there using
   the manacles that are attached to the wall.  Barnabas steps into the
   niche and starts to put his hands into the manacles...

      Trask bricks Barnabas up. As he puts the last brick in, he gloats,
   "Not only am I avenging my father, I am preventing you from testifying
   in Quentin's favor!".
      At Collinwood, Julia walks into the foyer and runs into Gerard in
   there.  He tries to say "Hello", but she rebuffs him, saying, "Don't
   pretend. I know you tried to kill Barnabas. I will be civil to you when
   there are other people around, but that's all."  Gerard asks, "Are you
   looking for you brother?"  Julia excitedly asks, "Yes!  Do you know where
   he is? No one has seen him since yesterday!"  Gerard tells her he doesn't
   know where Barnabas is. Julia tells him she's going to town to see Quentin.
   Trask walks in through the front door. He sees Julia leave. He asks
   Gerard, "Looking for her brother?"  Gerard replies that she is. Trask
   remarks, "I know how she feels.  Imagine what she feels when days turn
   into years...". Gerard asks, "What do you mean?" and accuses him of having
   something to do with Barnabas' disapearance. Trask denies it.
      Julia goes to the jail to visit Quentin and asks him, "Has Barnabas
   been here?"  Quentin replies that he hasn't, that he was supposed to
   come here to discuss his testimony tomorrow with him and Desmond, that
   Desmond waited here for hours, but Barnabas never showed up and Desmond
   eventually gave up and left about an hour ago. Julia becomes very worried
   and remarks, "He would never have deserted you at a time like this.
   Something dreadful must have happened to him!"  Quentin agrees and tells
   her he thinks it's the same people who are framing him, that they've
   done something to Barnabas to keep him from testifying, that they'll do
   anything to make sure he's convicted.
      In the cellar of the Trask's funerary chapel, Barnabas hears footsteps.
   Someone comes down the stairs. It is Trask. He gloats to Barnabas, "Your
   failure to appear today and testify was very bad for the defense!".
      Daphne goes into the drawing room at Collinwood, where Gerard is, and
   asks him how the trap went. Gerard lies that nothing happened. She tells
   him that she can tell he's lying and demands that he tell the truth.  
   Gerard lies that Joanna's ghost appeared, that she approached the bed 
   holding a knife, but disappeared when she saw that it wasn't her, Daphne,
   in there. Daphne gasps, "The she really does want to kill me!"  She is
   shocked. Gerard suggests that they try to communicate with Joanna. Daphne
   protests that they already tried that, that they held that seance to
   contact her and had only very limited success. Gerard suggests that they
   have Quentin write a letter to her explaining how he feels about her,
   Daphne, and beg Joanna to leave her alone, and that they leave it in the
   old oak tree where Quentin and Joanna used to leave notes. Daphne tells
   him she's worried about doing this, that Quentin has already been accused
   of communicating with the dead and she's worried someone might find out
   about this. Gerard suggests she talk to Quentin about this.
      Trask again goes down to the chapel basement and asks, "Are you hungry
   yet? Thirsty?  A slow agonizing death is the worst kind!"  Barnabas does
   not answer, but thinks to himself what a rotten time it was to have had
   the vampire curse lifted.
      Daphne goes to the jail and tells Quentin about the letter and what
   Gerard said happened in her room that night. She tells him about Gerard's
   plan. Quentin tells him he thinks it's a good plan and that they should
   do it.
      At Collinwood, Gerard tells Trask that he's heard from a secret source
   who wishes to remain anonymous that he's learned that Quentin will try to
   contact the dead tonight, that he's lost all hope and will try to enlist
   spirit aid. Julia returns to Collinwood and runs into Daphne, who's
   coming down the stairs. Daphne asks, "Any word of your brother?". Julia
   replies, "No. I've call the police and they're searching the woods for
   him now."  Daphne excuses herself, saying she has an errand to run and
   leaves. Julia opens the drawing room doors and finds Gerard and Trask in
   there. She accuses them of being in cahoots and having had something to
   do with Barnabas' disappearance.  They deny it. Trask leaves.
      Daphne goes to the old oak tree. She takes the letter from Quentin out
   and reaches out to put it in a hole in the trunk. Suddenly, Trask comes
   out from behind the tree, grabs her wrist and exclaims, "I'll take that
   letter, Miss Harridge!".

      Daphne demands, "Give that back to me!  It's mine!"  Trask looks at
   letter, sees that it is addressed "Joanna" and refuses, asking, "Is your
   name Joanna?"  He tells her he knows what it is, that Quentin is trying
   to contact the dead. He tells her to expect to be called as a witness
   against Quentin and lets her go.
      At the old house, Angelique is pacing around nervously, worried to
   death about Barnabas. The door opens. Thinking it might be Barnabas, she
   quickly turns to look, but finds it's only Julia. Julia tells her she
   hasn't had any success in finding Barnabas. Angelique woefully remarks,
   "If only I hadn't lifted the curse, he wouldn't be so vulnerable...".
   Julia comforts her, saying if he hadn't, Gerard would have staked Barnabas
   by now. Angelique continues, "You should've seen the look of joy in his
   eyes, how happy he was to be able to see the daylight again! I should've
   known Judah Zachary would never have let me have him!"  Julia, surprised,
   asks how she knows about Judah Zachary. Angelique recounts to her what
   happened 150 years ago, how it was Judah Zachary who made her like this,
   how she was one of his disciples but turned against him and testified
   against him at his trial. Julia gasps, "Then you must be the Miranda that
   all the newspapers talked about!". Angelique replies that she is. She tells
   Julia about how Zachary had vowed vengeance against anyone responsible for
   his execution. Julia remarks, "but Judah Zachary has been destroyed!".
   Angelique replies that he has, but that she thinks his spirit has taken
   over the body of someone else, that she had thought it was Quentin, but
   now knows that it cannot be, for Zachary wouldn't have done anything to
   Barnabas before he testfied for him.  Julia exclaims, "Gerard!". Angelique
   replies, "I thought it was him at first too because he called me
   'Miranda', but he convinced me he wasn't". She thinks to herself then
   exclaims, "Of course! He was in the house when I saw the vision of Amadeus!
   He could've made me see Quentin's face when I asked to see the face of
   the man who was now Judah Zachary! It must be Gerard!". Julia suggests
   that she use her powers to try to find out where Barnabas is. Angelique
   replies that she has no clairvoyant powers. Julia exclaims, "Of course!
   Why didn't I think of it before!  I'll ask Leticia to use her second sight
   to find Barnabas!".
      Daphne goes into the drawing room at Collinwood, confronts Gerard and
   accuses him of being in cahoots with Trask in trying to make Quentin
   look guilty, saying he was the only person aside from Quenitn who knew
   she was going to put the letter in the old oak tree and taht it must been 
   he who told Trask that she would be there. She tells him, "That means 
   you are an enemy of Quentin's!  I know that now, and tomorrow Quentin
   will know it too!" and leaves.
      Trask returns and shows Gerard the note, remarking that they must get
   it to Charles Dawson as soon as possible.  Gerard tells him he must put it
   back in the old oak tree, that he's thought of a better idea, that it 
   would be better to prove Quentin guilty of successfully contacting the
   dead than merely of trying to contact the dead. Trask asks, "You really  
   think she'll appear?"  Gerard replies "Twice!  Once to take the letter,
   and once to leave a reply!  The second time, we'll be hiding there to see
   her!"  Trask gleefully remarks, "When the court hears testimony of this,
   they'll convict Quentin immediately!".
      After Trask leaves, Gerard orders Samantha to dress like the ghost
   of Joanna, go to the old oak tree, get the letter which Trask is on his
   way to put there right now, write an answer and put it in the tree. She
   asks why. He replies, "To destroy Quentin!".
      After Samantha leaves, Gerard puts a spell on Daphne to make her have
   another dream.  Daphne, upstairs, has a dream in which she returns from
   town and Gerard chatises her for being away so long. She apoligizes, saying
   she was thinking about him all the time she was away. They kiss and tell
   each other how much they love each other. Daphne awakens, again disturbed
   by a dream she does not remember. She goes down and finds Gerard in the
   drawing room.  Gerard has succeeded. She is now in love with him.
      Julia returns to the old house. She tells Angelique that Leticia wasn't
   able to see anything, that it's almost as if something were blocking her
   powers. Angelique remarks, "I must go to Gerard. He doesn't know that I
   know he's Judah Zachary.  Judah Zachary used be in love with me.  Maybe I
   can use his attraction to me to learn where Barnabas is.".
      Gerard and Trask are hiding behind some trees, watching the old oak
   tree. A cloaked figure walks up to the tree, puts a note in the hole, and
   leaves. Trask exclaims, "It must have been a ghost!  Look how it glided up
   to the tree, as if on air!"  They go and take the note. It is addressed to
   Quentin.  They open it and read it.  It is cryptic and doesn't say much.
      Gerard returns to Collinwood. He finds Samantha and laughs. He
   compliments her on her brilliant performance and mockingly repeats
   Trask's words about how it must have been a spirit because of the way it
   glided.  Samantha exclaims, "But it wasn't me! I went to the tree, but
   there was no letter there for me to answer!  I looked all over for you but
   couldn't find you. I didn't know what to do!"  Gerard, shocked, starts to
   say, "Then it must have been...". Samantha interrupts him, finishing his
   sentence,"...Joanna Mills! She's really come back!".

      Samantha fearfully asks, "What if she's here in the house?  She'll
   come after me!  She'll kill me!"  Gerard asks why Joanna would do that.
   Samantha replies that it was she who stood in the way of Joanna and
   Quentin by refusing to give Quentin a divorce.  She adds that Joanna is
   no doubt also angry at her for forging letters from her. There's a
   knock at the door.  Gerard answers.  It's Charles Dawson. Dawson takes out
   a piece of paper and tells them it's a court order for him to search
   Quentin's lab.  Samantha takes him there, going through the door under the
   stairs.  Leticia, who's just come in as Samantha and Dawson were leaving,
   remarks of Dawson, "That man!  He has death in his eyes!"  She accuses
   Gerard of knowing where Barnabas is, and demands that he tell her. He
   denies it.
      The grandfather clock in the foyer shows 1:10. Dawson comes back from
   the lab holding some books. He goes into the drawing room and remarks to
   Gerard, who's alone in there, "I found some interesting things in there!"
   Gerard smiles and replies, "Of course.  I put them in there earlier!"
   He asks, "Did Trask give you the letter?"  Dawson replies, "Yes he did.
   He wants to testify tomorrow."  Gerard asks, "Are you going to let him?"
   Dawson replies, gesturing to one of the books he's holding, "No. I have
   some much more important evidence to present!"  Gerard remarks, "Leticia.
   She's becoming quite a pain in my side."   Dawson replies, "We'll have to
   do something about her".  Gerard adds, "And quickly..."
      Desmond is in his study looking through some law books and taking
   notes. Leticia comes rushing into the room, holding a piece of paper
   which she tells him is a summons she's just received to testify in court
   tomorrow.  She wonders what it could be that the prosecution could want
   her to testify against Quentin about.  She thinks and gasps, "It couldn't
   be about that head, could it?".  Desmond replies, "No. How would they know
   about that?"  He suggests to her that they probably want to talk about her
   second sight and link it to Quentin.  He tells her that if she is asked
   about her second sight, to tell them it was nothing more than an act,
   a fake.
      Samantha, still afraid of Joanna's ghost, begs Gerard to take her
   away from Collinsport immediately. Gerard replies, "Not now that things
   are getting fun!"  He promises to take her away and marry her when
   everything is over.
      In the courtroom, Desmond tells Quentin that he has the feeling the
   prosecutor is going to try something special today. He tells Quentin
   about Trask intercepting the letter he had written to the spirit of
   Joanna, but that he doesn't know if that's it or not.
      The trial starts. Leticia is called to testify for the prosecution.
   Charles Dawson asks her about her second-sight act.  Leticia replies that
   it's not real, that it's only a trick.  Dawson then takes out a book and
   asks, "Have you ever seen this book?"  Leticia replies that she doesn't
   think so. Dawson continues, "Perhaps the title would help you remember.
   It's called 'The Journal of Judah Zachary'".  Leticia gasps.  Dawson
   questions her about Judah Zachary and gets her to tell about the head
   Desmond had brought back from the Far East, about how it opened its eyes
   and had mysterious powers. Desmond protests that the head of Judah Zachary
   is irrevelant, that Judah Zachary has been dead for 150 years. Dawson
   replies that that isn't true. He opens the journal and tells the court
   that the first entry is dated July 16, 1688, four years before Judah
   Zachary's execution, but that the last entry is dated November 15, 1840.
   He concludes that Judah Zachary is alive today and possesses some living
   person.  He calls Desmond to the stand.  Desmond protests that he is the
   defending attorney.  Dawson replies that this is a special trial and this
   is a special case, that he intends to prove that the spirit of Judah
   Zachary has possessed Quentin.  The judge agrees.  Desmond takes the stand.
   Dawson asks him why he brought the head.  Desmond admits that it was
   Quentin who asked him to get it, but says it was only as a curio. Dawson
   gets him to tell the court about how the head opened its eyes and had
   mysterious powers.  Dawson asks where the is head now. Desmond replies
   that it was destroyed in a secret underground tomb. Dawson asks that
   Desmond be disqualified as attorney for the defense and be charged with
   witchcraft. The tribunal confers, then the lead judge announces that
   Desmond is to be disqualified as defending attorney and arrested for

      Desmond now sits in a cell, arrested for witchcraft.
      At Rose Cottage, Flora tells Gerard she is worried about how the trial
   is going.  Gerard comforts her, telling her he's sure Desmond is doing the
   best he can. Flora worries about where Barnabas is.  Leticia bursts into
   the room and tells her the bad new about Desmond being arrested for 
   witchcraft too.  Flora is shocked and asks how that could have happened.
   Leticia replies that they somehow found out about that head he brought
   back from his travels. 
      Leticia visits Desmond in jail.  Desmond tells her he suspects it is
   Gerard who is possessed by Judah Zachary and tells her that if they can
   find the head and prove this, they can get Quentin released.  He tells her
   to go check if it's still in the secret tomb, that if it isn't, Gerard
   probably has it.
      Flora visits Desmond. She tells him not to worry, she'll hire the best
   lawyer possible to defend him.  He tells her he doens't know how the
   journal turned up in Quentin's lab, that he had it.  He suggests that it
   was Gerard who took it, saying that it disappeared when he had that 
   mysterious attack, and tells her the only people there at the time were 
   her and Gerard.  Desmond tells her they're being set up, but that he can't
   prove it.
      Angelique, realizing Gerard has been possessed by Judah Zachary and
   thinking she can use the fact that he used to love her to seduce him
   into telling her where Barnabas is, goes into the drawing room where
   he is and tries to seduce him.  She asks him, "Have you ever been in love?"
   He replies that he was in love with a woman once, a long, long time ago,
   but that he eventually came to hate her and that he hates her still.
   Angelique, hearing this, gives up, realizing it wouldn't work.
      Leticia returns to Collinwood and tells Angelique and Julia, who are
   in the drawing room, about what's happened.  She tells them that she's
   gone to check the secret tomb and that the head of Judah Zachary is no
   longer there.  She remarks that they must find it and prove that Gerard
   is possessed by Judah Zachary.  Angelique, saying Gerard has gone to Rose
   Cottage, volunteers to go search his room for it.  She leaves.  Leticia
   suggests to Julia that they go look in Quentin's lab and remove anything
   else that might be incriminating.  Julia agrees and adds that they'll
   also get to know what's in there so they'll know if the prosecution plants
   anything there in the future.
      In the lab, Leticia sees the "Staircase through time" and remarks on
   how strange it is, a staircase in the middle of the room leading to a
   door in the middle of the wall.  A strange expression comes over her face
   and she starts up the stairs.  Julia grabs her and stops her.  Leticia
   snaps back to normal. Julia asks her what happened.  Leticia replies, "I
   don't know. I thought I heard something..." Julia asks what. Leticia
   replies that she doesn't know, but that she's afraid and is going to leave.
   Angelique comes into the room and announces that she's searched Gerard's
   room but found nothing. Leticia, still frightened, leaves. Julia explains
   the staircase to Angelique and tells her she had used to to come to this
   time. She explains how it had appeared in the playroom the night Gerard's
   ghost was destroying Collinwood, how she went up the stairs, through the
   door and found herself in the 19th century.
      At Rose Cottage, Leticia offers to read Gerard's future using an
   ordinary deck of playing cards.  She deals a few cards and announces,
   "You will marry a woman who hates you."  Gerard becomes angry at
      Leticia goes to jail and tells Desmond that she's just read Gerard's
   future and that it's different from the future she read a few months ago.
   She tells him that she's certain now that Gerard is a different person,
   that the future she just read is different because it's the future of a
   different man, that it's the future of Judah Zachary.  Desmond growls,
   "OH, I'd like to kill him!"  But Leticia replies that it's not Gerard's
   fault.  She reminds him that both he and she were once under the head's
   control too.  She tells him they must find a way to save Gerard.
      In Quentin's lab, Angelique leaves, saying she wants to find out if
   Trask knows anything about Barnabas' disappearance.  After Angelique
   leaves, Julia hears footsteps coming from begh the door at the top of the
   "Staircase through Time".  Julia gasps, "Someone's coming!" The door
   starts to open.  Julia wonders aloud, "But who?  Who?"

      A man walks through the door. Julia warmly calls out, "Elliot!". It is
   Professor Stokes.  Stokes tells her that he came to help her because he
   had found Flora's journal in the ruins of Collinwood and read in it that
   Barnabas Collins had disappeared and was never seen again.  Julia asks him
   how he learned about the stairs.  Stokes tells her that Barnabas had told
   him about them before going back in time.  He tells her that he waited in
   the playroom for over 36 hours for the stairs to appear.  Julia tells him
   about Quentin and Desmond being arrested and tried for witchcraft.  She
   tells him she must give him a complete history.  She tells him she'll tell
   everyone he's a university professor she knew from Philadelphia.  Suddenly,
   someone starts to turn the doorknob. Gerard's voice demands, "Who's in
   here?  Why is this door locked?"
      Julia lets Gerard in.  He looks around and sees that she's apparently
   alone in the room.  He remarks to her,"I thought I heard you talking to
   someone."  She holds up a book and replies, "It's a bad habit of mine. I
   always read aloud when I'm alone."  He asks her what she's doing here.
   She tells him she's looking for any move evidence against Quentin that
   might be here. He asks her what she intended to do with any evidence she
   might have found. She replies, "Destroy it, of course. That's what you
   would've done, wouldn't you?"  Gerard answers that it is, that that
   happens to be why he came here too.
      Julia and Gerard, having left Quentin's lab, are in the foyer. Julia
   mentions to Gerard, "Oh, by the way. A friend of mine from Philadelphia,
   a Professor T. Elliot Stokes, is coming here to visit me. He'll be arriving
   at 9:30 tonight. I just received a letter from him this morning."  Gerard ,
   looking suspicious, replies, "Yes, the mails are dreadfully slow, aren't
   they?"  He asks, "Any relation to Ben Stokes?"  Julia replies that he is,
   that that's how they became friends at the college, that when he learned
   her name was "Collins", he told her he had to have an uncle who worked
   for a Collins family.  Gerard remarks, "It's strange that he wasn't at
   Ben's funeral".  Julia explains that she sent him a letter informing
   Stokes of his uncle's passing and funeral, but he was abroad and didn't
   get the letter until he returned. Gerard tells her he'll have a room
   prepared for Stokes and leaves.
      Angelique comes into the foyer and Julia, telling her she has something
   to talk to her about, takes her into the drawing room and closes the doors.
   She tells her about Professor Stokes coming.  She warns her that he knows
   Barnabas from the future, but doesn't know about his being a vampire. She
   adds that he knows HER from he future too, and knows she's a witch. She
   tells her they'll have to give him some story explaining why she's here
   and married to Barnabas. She tells her she'll have to lie that she's
   Cassandra and is obsessed with him and followed him here
      Julia brings some period clothing to Stokes.  She tells her the story
   about Angelique.  She tells about him everything that has happened.  When
   she mentions the name "Judah Zachary", Stokes exclaims, "Judah Zachary!
   The warlock?"  Julia, surprised, replies, "Yes. You've heard about him?"
   Stokes replies, "Of course. Occult history is my speciality. Judah Zachary
   was tried and beheaded for witchcraft in 1692 in Bedford, Massachusetts.
   His head was supposed to retain his powers, but it disappeared."  Julia
   tells him about Desmond bringing the head back from the Far East, how it
   exerted its power over many people, including her, and how she suspects
   that it's possessing Gerard now, though the court believes it's possessing
   Quentin.  Stokes asks what evidence there is against Quentin.  Julia
   summarizes it.  Stokes asks if Daphne is here.  Julia replies that she is.
   She tells him she's going to take him into town, where he's to wait and
   take a coach later which will bring him to Collinwood at 9:30.  Stokes
   asks, "And she's in love with Gerard?"  Julia tells him, "No. She fears
   Gerard.  She loves Quentin."  Stokes remarks that it's the most complicated
   puzzle he's ever encountered.
      The clock in the foyer shows 9:15.  Julia is sitting in the drawing
   room.  She has fallen asleep. She has a dream in which she awakens to hear
   Roxanne's voice calling to her.  She finds Roxanne at the front doorway
   begging her, "He's dying, Julia, Barnabas is dying! Follow me!". Julia
   follows her out of the house and into town. They are standing in a street
   in front of a wall bearing a sign saying "Office for rent".  Roxanne tells
   Julia, "There is little time!  You must hurry!" Suddenly, Julia finds
   herself shaken awake. She looks up and finds Angelique standing over her,
   saying, "Julia!  You fell asleep!"  Julia moans, "Oh no!  She was taking
   me to Barnabas!  You ruined it!" She explains to Angelique what happened.
   Angelique tells her, "We must go to where she took you!". Julia protests,
   "But it's almost 9:30. Stokes will be coming soon."  Angelique asks,
   "What's more important, Stokes or Barnabas?"  Julia agrees, "Barnabas"
   and they leave.  Gerard sees them leaving and smiles.
      It's 9:30. Stokes arrives.  He meets Gerard in the foyer and they
   introduce themselves to each other.  Gerard tells Stokes Julia isn't
   here, nor is Barnabas, who has mysteriously disappeared.  Gerard tries
   to trip Stokes up and asks, "I trust your journey from Baltimore was
   pleasent."  Stokes corrects him, "Philadelphia".  Gerard says, "Oh yes,
   Philadelphia".  Gerard asks Stokes about Julia's life in  Philadelphia,
   saying he's always been curious about it because Julia's always seemed
   reticent to discuss it.
      Julia leads Angelique along the trail Roxanne led her. They find
   themselves on the street where Julia and Roxanne were in the dream.
   Julia points out the "Office for Rent" sign to Angelique and tells her
   she knows they're in the right place because she remembers the sign.
   They don't know where to go from here and call for Roxanne's spirit to
   come and show them the way.  They do not notice that a few buildings down
   is a one bearing the sign "Trask Funeral Home".
      In the cellar of the Funerary Chapel, Roxanne's spirit is standing in
   front of the wall where Barnabas is entombed and wails, "Oh, Barnabas,
   why doesn't Julia come? You have so little time..."

      Trask goes into the cellar to see if Barnabas is still alive. He finds
   he is, but is very weak.
      Gerard visits Quentin in jail. Pretending to be a friend, he suggests
   that they seek a postponement in view of the fact he has no attorney, 
   Desmond having been arrested too.  Quentin asks if there's been any new
   about Barnabas.  Gerard replies, "No, he just seems to have disappeared".
   Gerard leaves.  Quentin moans, "First me, then Desmond and Barnabas..."
   He wonders if the head of Judah Zachary could be behind this and targeting
   them one by one...
      Gerard goes to the courthouse, where Dawson is alone working late.
   Dawson remarks, "There's no need to drag this thing on."  He tells Gerard
   they can end the trial with Quentin's conviction very quickly, that all
   they have to do is present proof of Quentin's possession by Judah Zachary.
   Gerard asks what kind of proof he's talking about.  Dawson replies that
   all they have to do is plant the head of Judah Zachary in Quentin's lab
   and then "find" it there.  Gerard looks uneasy. D awson asks him what's
   wrong.  Gerard replies,"And what do you think the court will do with the
   head after the trial?"  Dawson replies, "Destroy it?"  Gerard replies,"Of
   course" and vetoes the idea.  Trask comes in.  He remarks that Dawson is
   working late tonight and says, "You wouldn't have to if you'd just call
   me to testify.  This trial would be over quickly if you would!"  Dawson
   replies that he needn't be so anxious, that he'll get his chance to
   testify in 12 hours, that he's calling him to the stand tomorrow. Dawson
   finishes up and leaves.  Trask is smiling broadly.  Gerard asks him,"Why
   are you so happy?"  Trask tell him, "I have the pleasure of telling you
   that Barnabas Collins is dead!"  Gerard asks how he knows, but Trask
   refuses to tell him, saying he'd prefer to keep it a mystery.
     The trial session begins. Quentin asks the court that the trial be
   postponed until he can find a new attorney.  Dawson objects, saying Quentin
   is a witch and a postponement would give him the chance to cast spells.
   The court grants Quentin a postponement - until 1:00. Quentin exclaims,
   "One o'clock TODAY?!". The judge says yes.  Quentin complains that that's
   only three hours from now, not enough time. The judge replies that if he
   can't find another attorney, he had two alternatives, either represent
   himself, or use a court appoi nted defense attorney, Silas Graham.  Quentin
   exclaims, "Silas Graham???!!" Dawson asks, "What wrong with Silas Graham?"
   Quentin replies," Everyone knows he's incompetent!" The judge recesses the
   court until 1:00.
      Gerard visits Quentin in jail. Gerard tells him he's searched high and
   low for an attorney to represent him, with no luck....
      Gerard goes to Dawson and tells him, "I have the feeling that today is
   the day for the kill!"  Dawson asks, "So Quentin didn't find another
   attorney?"  Gerard grins and replies, "Of course not! I'm the one he asked
   to look for one for him!"
      It is 1:00. The court reconvenes. Dawson asks who his opponent is.
   Quentin replies that he'll have to speak for himself, that he couldn't
   find an attorney in time for the trial.  Dawson calls Trask to the stand to
   testify. Trask testifies about Lorna Bell, about how he saw her and
   Quentin together, how he heard them make an appointment to meet each
   other later, how she was later found dead with the mark of the devil on
   her forehead, how the mark matches that on Quentin's ring.  He tells the
   court that the same mark was found next to Randall Drew's body, that
   Quentin was found kneeling next to the body.  He testifies about how Daniel
   had a vision of Quentin killing Lorna Bell while he was next to a
   "Staircase through time" Quentin had built.  Quentin objects, asking "If I
   am so powerful, why did I let him have the vision?"  Dawson replies, "At
   that time you were beneficiary in his will and knew it, and you knew he
   had a weak heart and that such a vision would cause an attack. You were
   obviously trying to kill him in order to get the inheritance. Luckily,
   the heart attack the vision caused did not kill him."
      Dawson asks Trask about Mordecai Grimes. Trask tells the court about
   how Quentin had always wanted Grimes' land, but that Grimes had always
   refused to sell. He testifies about how Grimes' cows all sickened and
   died.  He tells them that it is obvious that Quentin had caused this,
   that Mordecai Grimes had told him that Quentin had threatened him.
   Quentin denies this, and asks that the last comment is hearsay and not
   admissible.  The lead judge agrees and has it stricken from the record,
   saying that Mordecai Grimes will have the chance of saying Quentin
   threatened him if it happened when he testifies.  Trask having finsished
   his testimony, the judge asks Quentin if he would like to cross-examine
   the witness.  Quentin asks for a short delay, saying he would prefer his
   attorney to cross-examine Trask.  Dawson protests, "This is some sort of
   trick!  He's already told you he hasn't been able to find an attorney!".
   Quentin replies, "I'm sorry if I gave the court that impression.  What I
   meant was that I found an attorney, but he couldn't be here in time for
   the start of today's session"  He begs the court for a short delay until
   his attorney arrives.  Suddenly, a voice comes from the back of the room,
   "That won't be necessary, Quentin. I'm here."  It is Barnabas!

      Dawson objects, saying Barnabas is not a lawyer, but Barnabas tells
   the court that he has researched the law thoroughly and found that in
   Witchcraft trials, one merely need to be a citizen and not a lawyer to
   defend the accused. The court agrees, and asks Barnabas if he would like
   to cross-examine Trask.  Barnabas replies that he would, that he would like
   to get a copy of Trask's testimony so he can do so.  But Trask suddenly
   complains of being ill and tells the court he'll have to leave.  Barnabas
   objects, saying he has the right to cross-examine the witness.  The court
   agrees and adjourns until 10:00 tomorrow morning.
      Barnabas accompanies Quentin to jail.  Quentin asks, "What happened?
   I got a letter from Valerie telling me you'd be here, but where have you
   been?"  Barnabas answers, "Trask has been holding me prisoner.  Julia and
   Valerie found me and released me."  Quentin asks, "Why didn't you go to
   the police?"  Barnabas replies,"I choose not to."  Quentin asks why, but
   Barnabas refuses to tell him, saying he has his reasons. He tells him they
   have something much more important to discuss, the trial.  He tells him
   he's read Trask's testimony and says, "If it stands, it'll be a disaster
   for you!".
      Barnabas goes to Trask's house and confronts him.  He tells him he plans
   revenge for what he's done, but not now.  He tells him he'll let him wait
   and suffer, knowing that the time will come, but not when...
      Dawson goes to court early and asks Trask, who's there alone, "You
   asked me to come early . What do you want?"  Trask tell him that he can't
   testify today.  Dawson, shocked, tells him "You must!  If you don't allow
   yourself to be cross-examined, your testimony will be stricken!"  He tries
   to convince Trask to testify, saying the prosecution's case will fall apart
   without his testimony.
      Barnabas goes to Rose Cottage to talk to Flora.  Flora asks him where
   he's been.  Barnabas lies that he's been out of town, that he was called
   away suddenly and didn't have a chance to tell anyone, not even Julia or
   Valerie.  Flora tells him that Desmond is now in jail too, that they've
   found out about the head.  She asks him to help Desmond.  Barnabas replies
   that that won't be necessary, that Desmond is only in jail because of his
   association with Quentin, that if Quentin is found innocent, he'll be
   released too.  He asks her who in the household had seen the head.  Flora
   replies that she and Leticia did.  Barnabas asks if it is possible Gerard
   might have seen it.  Flora replies that she doesn't know and asks if he
   thinks Gerard has anything to do with what's happening to Quentin.
   Barnabas replies that he thinks so, but can't prove it. He asks when
   Gerard and Trask became such good friends  Flora tells him it was then
   nighty Trask discussed his father's disappearance when he learned that
   Gerard claimed to have some occult powers, that he became very interested
   in this.  Barnabas asks her to tell him everything about that night.
      The next day in court, Charles Dawson tell the court that Lamar Trask
   is now well and is ready to testify.  He calls Trask to the  stand for
   cross-examination by Barnabas.  Barnabas asks, "Is it true that you have
   accused Quentin of dabbling in the occult?"  Trask replies that that is
   true.  Barnabas asks "Do you then believe that dabbling in the occult is
   equivalent to Witchcraft?"  Trask replies that he believes it leads to it
   in most cases.  Barnabas asks, "Is it true that you have held a seance to
   contact your late father?"  Trask admits that he had.  Barnabas asks,"Were
   you successful?"  Trask admits that it was, that they heard his father's
   voice warning them to beware of evil.  Barnabas asks, "This means you have
   successfully practiced the occult.  Does this mean you are guilty of
   Witchraft?"  Trask exclaims, "NO!"  Barnabas replies that one can use the
   same reasoning with Quentin, that dabbling in seances cannot be used as
   evidence to prove that he is guilty of Witchcraft and asks that all
   references to seances be stricken from all testimony. The court agrees.
      Dawson tells the court that he has a new piece of evidence. He asks
   Trask about the letter he found.  Trask explains that he learned that
   Quentin was trying to communicate with the dead by leaving a letter in
   a tree and lay in wait and saw a spirit leave a letter there.  Dawson
   enters the letter as evidence, along with a self-portrait of Joanna 
   drawn by her while she was in the asylum, telling the court that they can
   use the signature on the portrait to compare the handwriting in the letter
   to, and a death certificate to prove she is dead.  Dawson remarks, "Holding
   a seance to communicate with the dead is one thing, but this proves that
   Quentin Collins has actually raised the dead.  I move that this PROVES that
   he is guilty of Witchcraft since only through Witchcraft can one raise the
   dead.  I ask that, due to the strength of this evidence, no more testimony
   is necessary and the court come to a decision NOW!"  Barnabas objects,
   "YOU CAN'T DO THAT!", but his objection is overruled.  Quentin whispers
   caustically to him, "I've been here longer than you have. They can do
   whatever they want..."
      After conferring with the other members of the tribunal, the lead
   judge Judge Vail announces "The court has come to a decision. Due to the
   testimony that has just been given...." He suddenly stops when he notices
   that a woman has walked into the courtroom.  He demands, "What do you
   want?"  The woman answers, "I have come to offer testimony in this case.
   My name is Joanna Mills."
