Carrie is called to testify at Quentin's witchcraft trial.

Synopsis Edit

The great house at Collinwood in the year 1840. A time when the deposed master of Collinwood, Quentin Collins, is on trial for his life. The charge: witchcraft, the penalty: beheading. On this night, Gerard Stiles, hoping to seal Quentin's fate has committed a murder for which he knows Quentin will be blamed. Just moments ago, the body of Mordecai Grimes was discovered by a horror-stricken Carrie Stokes.

Jeremy arrives home and finds Carrie, who tells him of his father's death. Jeremy asks if his father had any last words, and Carrie tearfully confesses that he did. Later, Carrie is called to testify at Quentin's trial. When Dawson asks her of Mordecai's dying words, she realizes that Jeremy betrayed her trust. She finally admits that Mordecai said Quentin's name before he died. Charles introduces Mordecai's letter further incriminating Quentin. The case against Quentin is concluded and the judges prepare to read their verdict.
