Barnabas discovers the real Rose Cottage.

Synopsis Edit

Teaser

Collinwood in 1970, a year in which the great house is destined for destruction unless Barnabas Collins and Julia Hoffman can find a way to prevent it. The two children in the house, David and Hallie, have become possessed by the ghosts of two children who lived in the year 1840. They in turn have performed a strange ceremony in order to give life to their dead governess, Daphne. On this night, one other spirit hungers for life again: the cruel and evil Gerard Stiles. On learning he has been betrayed by Daphne, Gerard has decided on a course of revenge, one that will bring total destruction to all who cross his path.

At Collinwood, Gerard appears in the playroom and sets the dollhouse on fire. At the same time, Daphne is surrounded by flames in the real Rose Cottage.

Act I

Gerard presses his finger against the door of the dollhouse, which prevents Daphne from escaping.

Meanwhile, Carolyn is watching over Maggie when she senses that something is happening in the house. She realizes that someone is going to die and runs out of Maggie's room, leaving her unattended.

At Rose Cottage, Daphne begs Gerard to let her live, for Tad and Carrie's sake. Meanwhile, Carolyn shows up in the playroom and distracts Gerard. The flames in Rose Cottage disappear and Daphne is able to flee the mansion. In the playroom, Carolyn threatens Gerard to never attempt to destroy the dollhouse again. Gerard approaches her, but Carolyn is able to run out of the room.

In the drawing room, Julia has returned from Windcliff, having dropped off Tad and Carrie. Julia notes that the children were "surprsingly cooperative." They decide to go upstairs to check on Maggie as the dogs howl outside.

Upstairs, Maggie sees a bat at her window.

Act II

Barnabas and Julia arrive in Maggie's room just in time before the vampire can enter her room. Julia notes that Maggie's condition is getting worse and she needs to prepare another blood transfusion.

Downstairs, Julia questions Carolyn as to why she left Maggie unattended. Carolyn appears to be in a hurry and dodges most of Julia's questions, but she says there is something "very important" she has to do at Rose Cottage.

Act III

Julia asks many questions about Rose Cottage, such as where it is and who lives there, but Carolyn finds her questions odd and says no one has lived there "since she died." Carolyn agrees to wait for Julia while she gets a letter to send to Windcliff so she can mail it for her.

Julia rushes back to Maggie's room and tells Barnabas that Carolyn is on her way to Rose Cottage. Barnabas is surprised that it really does exist. She tells Barnabas to follow Carolyn while she takes care of Maggie.

Barnabas goes downstairs and gives Carolyn the letter from Julia, and then secretly follows her.

Act IV

Julia gives Maggie another blood transfusion as the dogs continue to howl outside.

Carolyn arrives at Rose Cottage and searches for Daphne. A door opens and Barnabas walks in. Carolyn is angry with Barnabas for following her, but manages to calm down and tells him about her love of Rose Cottage. She tells Barnabas that there is a dollhouse that goes by the same name that was built by the original Quentin in the early 19th century, when Carrie was a young girl. The name "Rose Cottage" soon rubbed off on everyone, and the mansion then assumed the name. Barnabas asks more questions, but Carolyn's attitude reverts to an angry state and she leaves.

Barnabas returns to Maggie's room and tells Julia that he has found Rose Cottage. He tells her it's just another mansion on the estate, but was nicknamed Rose Cottage in the past. The dogs again howl outside and Barnabas decides he must go search for the vampire.

Later that night, the vampire appears in Maggie's room as Julia has her back turned. Julia suddenly feels tired and falls asleep. Maggie wakes up and notices the vampire in her room, and she slowly gets out of bed.

Story Edit

Bloopers and continuity errors Edit

  • During the scene where Gerard is burning Rose Cottage, you can see on the right side of the screen the model that was used for the interior shots where he uses his hand to block the door so that Daphne can't escape the real Rose Cottage. There is no roof on the model so that the camera can see inside. You can see the model three different times through the entire scene, including the time when Carolyn/Leticia shows up to confront Gerard and then leaves.
  • The door that Daphne is trapped behind opens in, so when Gerard holds his finger against it, that wouldn't prevent Daphne from opening it...
