Synopsis Edit

Darkness begins to fall on the great house of Collinwood, a darkness that brings new mysteries and deeper secrets to those within it. For tonight the forces of evil will begin a deadly game, while its innocent victims cling to life. In the darkened and deserted wing of the mansion, a young girl leads a man whose existence is the key to a mystery of which she knows nothing.

Carolyn hides Adam in the west wing of Collinwood. The rumor of Barnabas' death briefly has Victoria and Carolyn disturbed, Cassandra reluctantly dispels the rumor. David hears Dr. Lang's message on his tape recorder. Nicholas warns Cassandra that he will destroy her at midnight unless she finds out how to return the curse to Barnabas.
