Unable to find a new lawyer, Quentin is forced to defend himself.

Synopsis Edit

Collinwood in the year 1840, a time of crisis for the Collins family. Quentin Collins is on trial for his life, and Desmond, who was defending him, has also been arrested for the same crime: witchcraft, and faces the same penalty: beheading. While the trial prepares to resume, Barnabas is unable to help them, for Lamar Trask has lured him to the cellar of his chapel where he has walled him in and left him to die.

Trask tells Gerard that Barnabas is dead. The judge only gives Quentin 3 hours to find a new lawyer to replace Desmond. Quentin is forced to defend himself. Charles calls Trask to testify. Barnabas walks into the court stating he is ready to represent Quentin.

Background information and notes Edit

Production Edit

  • This episode was recorded out of broadcast sequence. The previous episode to be recorded was 1181.

Story Edit

  • Lamar correctly swears on the Bible by placing his left hand upon it and raising his right. However, this is not consistent with the way Samantha was sworn in 1165 and Daphne was sworn in 1166, when each of them placed their right hands on the Bible.
