Barnabas believes Roxanne will rise as a vampire.

Synopsis Edit

Teaser

The greathouse at Collinwood in the year 1840. A time when the influence of one man's evil was felt by all who lived here. Barnabas Collins and Julia Hoffman are convinced that the mysterious disembodied head of the warlock Judah Zachary has been destroyed in an underground explosion. But they do not know that Gerard Stiles, haunted by a strange and disturbing dream, has returned to the underground vault, expecting to find the valuable jeweled mask he left there. Instead, he finds something that will change his entire life.

Gerard finds the mask and lifts it off Judah's body. He discovers Judah is still alive.

Act I

Lamar continues to gloat to Barnabas and Julia of his engagement to Roxanne. He announces the wedding will happen very soon, and leaves to go tell Samantha. Barnabas is determined to stop it, but Julia persuades him to let her go instead, fearing Valerie's vengeance should Barnabas interfere.

Gerard returns to his room at Rose Cottage. The jeweled mask (and the Head, back in the case) are now in his possession. He gazes at the Head and tells it that soon he will know all of Judah's secrets. He places the mask on the table and falls asleep.

Julia visits Roxanne and tells her that Barnabas does truly love her, but is bound to Valerie. Roxanne promises that she will think carefully before marrying Lamar.

Later, Julia reports the news back to Barnabas. After Julia leaves, Roxanne shows up and throws herself in Barnabas' arms, declaring that nothing can keep them apart as long as they love each other. He tries to remain strong, but finally confesses that he does love her and kisses her, just as Valerie opens the door.

Act II

Roxanne proudly tells Valerie that Barnabas loves her, and that she will not give him up. Barnabas asks Roxanne to leave, and she obeys, but not before declaring that she will never change her mind. Angelique is fuming, but Barnabas does his best to calm her. He tells her that he did not send for Roxanne, but she came on her own. He promises it will not happen again. Valerie locks herself in the drawing room to contemplate her revenge. Barnabas tells Julia he isn't sure what to do about the situation anymore.

Roxanne returns home and tells Lamar that she will not marry him. He is furious and demands to know what has changed her mind. She tells him that she is still in love with Barnabas. Lamar declares he will find out whatever hold Barnabas has over her.

Meanwhile, Angelique sits by the fireplace in Collinwood, and casts a spell on Roxanne, causing her to collapse in pain in front of Lamar. Lamar leaves for Collinwood, convinced that Barnabas is the one to blame. Instead he finds Julia, who rushes to Roxanne's side.

Act III

Julia and Lamar return the cottage, where Roxanne is on the couch with the bite marks reopened. Roxanne dies, calling Barnabas' name. An angry Lamar buries his head in Roxanne's arms, and vows vengeance against Barnabas.

Julia tells Barnabas of Roxanne's death, and they both sadly conclude that they must save her from becoming a vampire.

The next morning, Gerard wakes up after sleeping all night, but he still feels very tired. He looks over at the table where the left the jeweled mask and finds it missing. After looking around, he sees on the top of his dresser next to the Head, and wonders how it could have gotten there since he locked the door to his room. Moments later, he finds Judah's journal on the table, and also wonders who put it there. He opens the journal and finds a new entry in Gerard's handwriting, which says the body has been destroyed forever. The entry than switches into Judah's handwriting, and it says he will live in through someone who craves all of his powers. Gerard looks and the Head and pleads for answers.

Act IV

Gerard continues to wonder what is happening to him. There is a knock on the door. Lamar enters and wonders who he was talking to, but Gerard says he was only having a nightmare. Lamar tells him that Roxanne died overnight, and believes her death was an act of sorcery. Gerard is surprised with Lamar's claims, but Lamar wants his help on investigating Barnabas. Gerard agrees to help him.

Gerard rushes to Collinwood in search of Leticia, but finds Julia instead. Julia tells him she hasn't seen her and leaves because Gerard is upset about something. Valerie enters the room, and not having met her before, Gerard introduces herself. He gives her a strange look, and calls her "Miranda".

Memorable quotes Edit
