- The great house at Collinwood in the world of Parallel Time. For over a century and a half this has been a house of dark and terrifying secrets. But during the past forty-eight hours the wall of secrecy has begun to crack. Not enough is known yet about the strange curse that has haunted the family all these years. But certain facts are coming to light. Facts which may either end the curse or the family itself.
James has a showdown with the ghost of Brutus Collins. Carrie runs to Collinwood for help and Julia goes with her back to the cottage. Kendrick Young returns from his trip, and informs Melanie that he spent the last three days in Concord, going through the records of the orphanage there. He discovered that Melanie was never at the orphanage, and her father lied when he said he found her there. Julia questions Morgan but learns little; he suggests that she question the spirit of Brutus Collins. Kendrick questions Julia about Melanie's past; later he sees Melanie when she is in her "mad" state.
