Elizabeth, due to Cassandra's spell, believes herself to be Naomi Collins and reenacts the past by taking poison.

Synopsis Edit

It is morning at the great house of Collinwood. A night has passed that will cause many horrifying results for those who live here, for a witch-hunter came back from the dead to right an ancient wrong, and during his exorcism, the devils flew from the witch, and now her husband, innocent and blameless, waits.

Julia and Barnabas find that Reverend Trask's skeleton is back in the wall in the basement. Elizabeth, due to Cassandra's spell, believes that she is Naomi and re-enacts the past by taking poison. Barnabas and Julia find Elizabeth shortly after she has taken the poison.

Memorable quotes Edit

Barnabas: What if she makes a connection between the living dead...
Julia: ...and vampire.

Production Edit

Story Edit

Bloopers and continuity errors Edit

  • In the opening scene of this episode, Julia enters and greets Roger with "Good morning, Rodney" ??? --Sounds to me like "Good Morning, Rogey."
  • The end credits get stuck at Robert Cobert and stay stuck, they then vanish for about 22 seconds, until the Dan Curtis Productions logo appears with an incorrect copyright year of 1966, rather than 1968.
