Julia stops Barnabas from giving Joe the poisoned medication.


The hour of dawn lingers far out at sea beyond cliffs of Collinwood, as though reluctant to bring the light of day to the land around the ancient house, sensing perhaps that an endless dark is more suited to the evil deeds that could be done this day, when two men trapped by the same unearthly force become tangled in a plot that could mean the destruction of one or the other.

Julia stops Barnabas from giving Joe the poisoned medication. Julia starts to become suspicious of Barnabas when she discovers the medication had poison in it. Mrs. Johnson tells Julia how Barnabas was found passed out in the woods the day before. Joe tries to strangle Barnabas.

Bloopers and continuity errors

  • Julia calls it morning but when with Maggie the clock appears to read 2:45pm.
  • A boom microphone shadow appears when Julia calls it morning.
