Quentin's former lover, Joanna Mills, who was thought to have died, makes a surprise appearance at the witchcraft trial.

Synopsis Edit

Collinwood in the year 1840, a time of peril for all who bear the Collins name. But especially for Quentin Collins who is on trial as a warlock. On this day, the prosecution has shown the court that he possessed some mysterious power which enabled to arouse the spirit of a young woman named Joanna Mills. The prosecution has maintained that this proves its case and has asked the judges to render an immediate verdict against him. A verdict which could cost him his life.

Joanna testifies and Trask's testimony is nullified. Charles tells Gerard that they need to use the head of Judah if they are going to convict Quentin. Joanna shows up at Collinwood asking to see Daphne; Samantha tells Gerard that she killed Joanna Mills.

Memorable quotes Edit

Dramatis personae Edit

Background information and notes Edit

Production Edit

  • This may be the only episode in which the word "avenge" is used, which appears here while Joanna is talking at the jail cell with Quentin. Most, if not all episodes of the series, have always had the actor say they would be "revenged".
  • This is the sixty-fourth episode, the first of three consecutive episodes, and the first of four episodes in the same week, with no pre-Barnabas cast members.
  • 1181-credits
    Closing credits scene: Courthouse.

Story Edit

  • Joanna incorrectly swears on the Bible by placing her right hand on it instead of her left, as did Samantha and Daphne in 1165 and 1166 respectively.
  • Official records state that Joanna's body was found, washed ashore, below the cliffs of Bedford.
  • TIMELINE: Trial resumes at 2pm. Quentin has been receiving Joanna's letters for the past few weeks, (he received the first one in 1122). Joanna returned to Collinsport three days ago, (she first appeared in 1180). Quentin's trial resumes at 10am tomorrow. 3:10pm: Charles and Gerard discuss the trial.

Bloopers and continuity errors Edit

  • It is stated to have been last night when Samantha didn't leave the letter in the tree from 'Joanna', as seen in 1173. However, there has been a gap of at least one day since then.
