- A woman has come to Collinwood determined to marry Edward Collins, but Lady Hampshire has discovered feelings and desires she did not know existed... and she has found herself drawn to a room in the Old House, drawn to a rendezvous with a man who is dead.
Quentin (Petofi) finds Kitty at the Old House confused about who she is; later she claims to have seen Barnabas.
Angelique scares Aristede and he slaps her. Angelique vows to make him regret it.
Edward wants to check on Barnabas but Kitty faints.
Quentin (Petofi) checks on Angelique and Barnabas who is still staked in his Coffin. Quentin (Petofi) warns Angelique that she had better say goodbye to Barnabas because it is the last time she will see him, and sets her on fire. Quentin (Petofi) takes the ring to Edward as proof Barnabas is dead.

Background information and notes
- Jonathan Frid returns to the cast after an absence of 21 episodes. [Frid's first vacation in 2 1/2 years] This is the first significant amount of time he has been away since joining the series in 211. The only other instance was a run of 28 episodes from 983 to 1010 in order to film House of Dark Shadows.
- This episode brings together for the third time Jonathan Frid, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Lara Parker and David Selby, the same four cast members who would reunite 43 years later in the 2012 Dark Shadows film directed by Tim Burton. This will occur another ten times during the original series in 711, 732, 955, 1016, 1021, 1024, 1027, 1029, 1041, 1056.
- INTERNAL MONOLOGUE: Angelique: It's the only thing.
- TIMELINE: Day 330 begins, and will end in 870. Kitty has been gone for several hours, (also stated in the next episode).
Bloopers and continuity errors
- When Quentin opens Barnabas's coffin, you can see Jonathan Frid breathing and his eyes slightly open.
- It is not explained how Aristede is able to put out the fire (that Petofi/Quentin started) that is consuming Angelique. Aristede has no supernatural powers, yet he gestures with his hand and the fire goes out.
