Elizabeth unwittingly discovers the resting place of Tom, and Barnabas heads there with a stake.

Synopsis Edit

There is a full moon over Collinwood, and the lives of those who live here seem to be going in directions they have never gone. A woman who has held the family together finds herself a kind of outcast, while another feels the need of a forbidden secret which can only destroy her.

Tom bites Julia; Barnabas and Willie wonder where he could be hiding. Elizabeth shows up, but Barnabas is worried for her; he offers to go back to the Windcliff Sanitarium with her. Elizabeth says she begged for Julia's help, but she’s involved because she followed her to a coffin in the Collins Family Cemetery.

Barnabas is intrigued. He goes to the crypt, where he finds Julia, unconscious and nearly drained and carries her back to the Old House. Willie and Barnabas go to Tom’s coffin to destroy him; Tom sees Barnabas holding a stake. They struggle, and Tom goes in for the kill.

Memorable quotes Edit

Barnabas: What do you want me to admit, Willie? That I care for Julia more than I appear to? All right, I will admit it. She's been a part of my life for so long. A very important part. And I must find her.
