- Collinwood in the year 1897: a time of uncertainty and fear for all who live within the great house, a time of intrigue and of dark, mysterious family secrets. A time when supernatural happenings were commonplace and threatened to destroy the Collins family forever.
Nora sees a fire in the hallway; however, it is gone when she returns with her father and Beth. Quentin finds that Beth is taking a large sum of money into Collinsport. Nora dreams that her mother comes back to Collinwood, but her father sends her away. Nora leaves the house to find her mother.
- Beth: Your brother is furious with me.
- Quentin: Edward's fury is like a common cold. It's a nuisance, but it always goes away.
- Edward: If you're sincere, you have just made one of your rare intelligent decisions. I congratulate you.
- Quentin: Ooooh, wonder of wonders. My brother has paid me a compliment. A half-hearted one, but a compliment nevertheless.
