Synopsis[edit | edit source]
- Collinwood in the year 1970, where the destruction witnessed by Barnabas Collins and Julia Hoffman in the future seems to be approaching with a relentless stride. Already, the ghosts of Tad and Carrie have possessed the bodies of David and Hallie, and they in their turn have been able to return Daphne Harridge from the grave. Their assigned task: to bring alive again the dreaded Gerard. But the main concern of Barnabas and Julia for the moment is the protection of Maggie Evans, who on this night, is being threatened by a creature with a thirst for blood.
As Julia watches over Maggie, the vampire appears in the room and causes Julia to fall asleep. Maggie gets out of bed and slowly approaches the vampire.
Quentin walks in just before the vampire bites Maggie and the vampire disappears. Maggie screams but then faints and Quentin carries her to her bed. Quentin wakes Julia and informs her the vampire was in the room. As the dogs continue to howl outside, Julia gives Maggie another blood transfusion and she falls back asleep. Quentin tells Julia that the head nurse at Windcliff has called for Julia.
Downstairs, Julia gets off the phone with the nurse at Windcliff as Barnabas watches. Julia has learned that the children are suffering from a high fever, but there is no medical explanation for their sudden illness. Barnabas believes that Gerard is going to make the children suffer as long as they are not at Collinwood. Julia decides to go to Windcliff to check on the children, while Barnabas agrees to help protect Maggie.
Barnabas arrives in Maggie's room and tells Quentin he has followed Carolyn to Rose Cottage. Quentin pretends to be surprised and asks if he saw anyone while he was there, but Barnabas, curious about his behavior, says he did not see anyone else. Quentin excuses himself from the room to avoid more of Barnabas' questions.
Quentin walks downstairs and realizes that Daphne must be hiding at Rose Cottage, and he decides to go there.
Quentin arrives at Rose Cottage and searches for Daphne and finds her in the dining room. He asks her what kind of ceremony they were performing in their room and wonders if it has anything to do with why the children are sick. Daphne is surprised to learn they are sick, but only tries to get rid of him. After more of Quentin's pressings, she says she needs to think about what Gerard might do. Quentin finally leaves and Daphne calls out for Gerard, begging him not to harm the children.
Julia arrives at Windcliff and meets with Tad, who is very sick. He gets upset when she calls him David and says that she isn't his doctor, and asks for someone named Gabriel. Julia gets confused and decides to go get more help. Once she is gone, Tad grabs a piece of chalk and says he needs to bring Gerard back tonight, and proceeds to draw a pentagram on the floor.
Back at Collinwood, Quentin is having a drink in the drawing room when Daphne suddenly shows up. She begs Quentin to take her to Windcliff to see the children, but he thinks it's a terrible idea and she would easily be discovered. Daphne tells him she will just go by herself and save the children's lives, with or without his help.
At Windcliff, Tad finishes his drawing and Julia walks in. She notices the pentagram and demands to know what he is up to.
Tad faints and Julia helps him back to his bed. Quentin shows up moments later, much to Julia's surprise, but says he was checking on the children. Julia decides to leave Quentin with Tad while she goes to check on Carrie. Once Julia leaves, Quentin sneaks Daphne into the room. Daphne requests to be left alone with him, but Quentin refuses at first, thinking they might try to perform a ceremony. She finally convinces him to leave, and Daphne lights candles so they can start the ceremony to bring Gerard back.
Later, Quentin is sitting outside of Tad's room when Julia returns. Quentin tells him that he is fast asleep and tries to keep Julia out of his room, and starts asking many questions about their experiences in 1995. She gets frustrated with Quentin and manages to get past him. She finally opens the door and discovers Daphne and Tad performing the ceremony.

Bloopers and continuity errors[edit | edit source]
- In Act 1, when Barnabas is talking to Quentin in Maggie's room, it sounds like Jonathan Frid mispronounces "Magruder" as "Magoo-der."
- Does Maggie say "Goddamn you!" when Quentin stops her from going to the vampire? [twice]
- As Quentin leaves Collinwood to go to Rose Cottage, he shuts the front door, but it starts to open again.
- Remnants of an erased pentagram are clearly visible on the floor when Tad draws one. [this is likely from the dress rehearsal]
- A boom microphone is visible as Daphne and Quentin talk in the drawing room.
- David Selby says "Dabne" instead of "Daphne"
- As David/Tad is drawing the pentagram on the floor, a boom microphone shadow passes across the floor and wall.
