Quentin's ghost instructs David to poison Chris.

Synopsis Edit

Late afternoon at Collinwood, the great house is peaceful and quiet, and those inside it know nothing of an arrangement being made on another part of the estate.

Barnabas locks Chris in the secret room in the Collins' mausoleum so he will not be able to hurt anyone when he is the werewolf. Mrs. Johnson is increasingly disturbed by the children’s behavior. Quentin wants David to poison Chris, but he refuses to do it.

Memorable quotes Edit

Barnabas: I wish there was some way I could help you.

Mrs. Johnson: Why are you both staring at me?

Amy: Pleasant dreams.

Barnabas: (to Amy) You don't seem to be quite yourself tonight.

Background information and notes Edit

Story Edit

  • The Collins mausoleum is made of solid granite and the walls are one foot thick.
  • Barnabas tells Chris that the secret room in the mausoleum was originally intended as a secret storage room for ammunition during the Revolutionary War.
  • Chris first transformed about seven years ago, a few days after his 21st birthday. He was going to be an architect and was not going to let anything or anyone stop him. He has changed about 100 times since then, and always following each change is the news that someone has been attacked and often killed. He has no memory of what he does as a werewolf.
  • GHOSTWATCH: Quentin's ghost appears to David.
  • TIMELINE: Late afternoon at the start of the episode. The werewolf attacked Barnabas the night before last. It was a "few nights ago" when Mrs. Johnson found David and Amy playing dress-up (occurred in 668). The next night she saw Quentin's ghost at the cottage (occurred in 669). [Addendum: This contradicts Carolyn's statement to the sheriff in the previous episode that Chris has lived in the cottage for "a few weeks." The night Mrs. Johnson saw Quentin's ghost, which here was just a few days ago, was the night she was preparing the cottage for Chris to move into it.]
