Carolyn's death causes Barnabas to make a life-changing decision as he and Julia await Adam's rampage.


The shadow of death hangs over the great house of Collinwood. On this night, at the Old House on the Collins estate, two people live with the fear that all those who live at Collinwood may be destroyed before sunrise.

Julia is shocked to discover that Carolyn's body is gone. Barnabas thinks that she made a mistake. Julia last examined her 15 minutes ago; Barnabas suspects that Adam removed the body but Julia states that she saw him leave. She hopes that maybe he did take the body, because it would mean he didn’t go to Collinwood. Julia gives Barnabas some stimulant medications. Willie comes home, reporting that he and Maggie are going stir-crazy. Barnabas reports Carolyn's death secondary to her involvement in the Experiment. Willie reports that he saw Adam on his way to The Old House and he was not headed toward Collinwood; he was sitting under a tree, alone. Barnabas confuses Willie, who wants to shift the focus back to Maggie. He says he’s tired of drugging Maggie and that she’s seen him open the door (off-screen). He’s also a little punch-drunk from lack of sleep. Barnabas purports not to like the situation with Maggie.

The trio continues to worry about the dual threats, and Julia comes to Willie’s side and decides to re-hypnotize Maggie. Julia tells Willie to meet her at the Mausoleum in an hour.

Maggie comes to in the Mausoleum and realizes she's alone; she opens the door and reveals Dr Julia Hoffman. Julia reconfines her and states she’s there to help her. Maggie knows it’s Barnabas she's trying to help and accuses Julia of trying to help Barnabas kill her. Julia offers Maggie her freedom for cooperation after failing to convince Maggie that Barnabas has changed. Julia's attempt to hypnotize Maggie fails when Maggie recognizes Julia's medallion.

At the Old House, Barnabas learns that despite Julia's best efforts, Maggie still has her memory. Barnabas seems resigned to accepting his doom. He blames himself; Adam’s been gone an hour and Julia wonders if Adam will carry out his threat since he didn’t do it immediately. She reasons that he wants a mate more than he wants to kill the Collinses; Barnabas doesn't buy it and decides to go to Collinwood and tell them everything, that Carolyn's dead as a result of the Experiment. Julia's upset at Barnabas decision; he remains blind to her deep love for him and plans to see her exonerated.

At the door of Collinwood, Barnabas begins to have doubts and wonders where the truth-telling will end. He is resolute to tell them no matter what becomes of him. Barnabas is stunned when Carolyn answers the door.

Memorable quotes[]

Willie: Barnabas, look, this can't go on much longer. I mean, I can't keep drugging her, and I can't keep her awake all the time. I mean, I need my sleep too, you know!

Maggie: If I ever get out of here, the whole world is going to know what Barnabas is!

Dramatis personae[]

Background information and notes[]


  • Nancy Barrett is credited despite only appearing a few seconds and having no dialogue.


Bloopers and continuity errors[]

  • In the teaser, the banister shakes when Barnabas leans against it.
  • In Act I, Barnabas makes a miraculous recovery from his injuries. In the teaser, he was moaning in pain, and Julia said he wouldn't be able to make it to the front door. But when Julia comes downstairs and tells him that Carolyn's body is gone, he jumps out of the chair and moves and speaks as if he's completely recovered.
  • Barnabas frets about telling the Collins family that he is a vampire, although technically he is currently not a vampire. [Barnabas frets about much more than letting the family know he was a vampire. In fact, the only thing he mentions that he would tell them is about Carolyn's death and the experiment, though he implies he will have to let them know about everything. And even though he is no longer a vampire, Barnabas has a lot to atone for dating back to when he was a vampire, and he seems to suggest he will admit to everything he's done, including when he was a vampire.]
  • When Willie talks about Adam not getting to Collinwood and seeing Adam in the woods, John Karlen (or someone) seems to have forgotten his lines. There is a significant hesitation when no one says anything, Jonathan Frid looks at the teleprompter, and Grayson Hall starts saying a line before Karlen starts speaking again.
  • A boom microphone shadow can be seen on Willie's face as he talks to Barnabas and Julia. It can also be seen as the camera slowly pans around the secret room at the Collins mausoleum.
  • At the beginning of Act III, when Barnabas is talking about all the problems he faces, there is a lot of off-stage noise.
