|Dark Shadows A Motion and a Spirit: Part One - Visits and Visitations|
A funeral is being held for a young girl named Robin. The ghost of Sarah Collins appears and pays witness to the somber spectacle.
Elsewhere, Maggie Evans is conducting a tarot card reading for Carolyn Stoddard. Carolyn wants Maggie to use her talents with the Tarot to reveal secrets concerning Barnabas Collins. But Maggie’s results, if any, prove inconclusive.
Maggie then goes to visit an old friend of hers, Granny Whitlock. She brings her a bottle of wine. Granny sits in her small house all day whittling wooden dolls. After Maggie leaves, one of Granny’s dolls begins speaking to her. The old woman falls to the floor unconscious and the ghost of Sarah Collins appears once again.
Out by Widow's Hill, Barnabas and Vicki Winters go for a stroll on the beach. After they are done, Barnabas converses with Julia Hoffman. Julia is pleased that Barnabas’ body has taken so well to her treatments. He can eat food again, make use of toiletries and even go out in the sunlight (for limited exposure only). But Barnabas is still frustrated over the fact that he must continuously endure these treatments.
Later, the ghost of Sarah Collins makes two more visitations. The first is to see her friend, David, and the second is to visit the ghost of Robin, the young girl who had recently died.
Willie: (regarding Barnabas’ newfound humanity) "Good thing you had the new plumbing put in, ain’t it?"
Barnabas: "Please, willie, certain subjects make me uncomfortable. I’ve asked you before to refrain from mentioning them."
