Synopsis Edit

The great house at Collinwood in the year 1840, a time when the evil force of one man held sway over the Collins family. Posing as Quentin Collins' best friend, Gerard Stiles has masterminded a frightening plot against him, a plot that brought him to trial on a charge of practicing witchcraft. After several weeks of testimony by both sides, the trial has finally come to an end. And on this day, Quentin Collins will learn what his fate is to be.

The judges find Quentin guilty and sentence him to be beheaded. Gabriel overhears Edith with Gerard. Later Gabriel kills Edith. Daphne sees parallel time in the east wing of Collinwood.

In parallel time Morgan Collins asks Catherine Harridge to marry him. Catherine's younger sister, Daphne, suspects that Catherine still loves her childhood sweetheart, Bramwell Collins.

Memorable quotes Edit

Gerard: (to Edith) You will get what you deserve, don't worry about that, you will get yours.

Edith: I'm going to start living before it's too late.

Daphne: This house, why does it affect people's lives so. It does something to everyone who comes into it.

Quentin: Did you tell him Gerard was behind the whole thing?
Barnabas: I'm afraid, Quentin, that it is all over.

Daphne (PT): I'm not sure that anything can ever change this house.

Background information and notes Edit

Production Edit

Story Edit

  • Quentin's Theme plays on the piano which draws Daphne to the east wing and to the Parallel Time room.
  • Edith is shown to die here in the year 1840, yet the charcter had previously been shown to have been alive by the time of 1897. (It has previously been demonstrated in the series that established history can be changed, i.e. Quentin not dying in the yaer 1897. It is highly possible that although not directy involved with Edith's death, Julia and Barnabas' presence in 1840 has altered established history.)
  • The east wing of Collinwood has been closed-off for years.
  • INTERNAL MONOLOGUE: Daphne: This house.
  • TIMELINE: Edith plans to meet Gerard at 11pm tonight. 8:20pm: Edith and Gabriel in the drawing room. 10:58pm: Edith in the drawing room, hears footsteps.

Bloopers and continuity errors Edit

  • The dead Edith can be seen breathing. (Maybe she didn't die after all?)
  • When Daphne is looking in on parallel time, you can see where the set ends, usually there is a wall there, but it is removed and you can see into the room Daphne is standing in.
