Barnabas visits Collinwood and asks Elizabeth and Roger for their permission to move into the dilapidated Old House.

Synopsis Edit

Teaser

My name is Victoria Winters. There are those who walk the path of darkness, a path that can never be lighted by good, because evil hides itself too well in the night, choosing the moment that it will reveal its horrors.

Jason follows Willie into Eagle Hill Cemetery. However, upon inspecting the Collins family mausoleum, he finds that Willie has disappeared. Jason leaves the cemetery, but an unseen witness watches warily after him – Barnabas Collins.

Act I

Back at Collinwood, Roger is trying to find out where Barnabas is staying in Collinsport. Failing that, he begins expressing his concern to Elizabeth. He suggests to her that they should offer Barnabas the opportunity to stay at Collinwood. As luck would have it, Barnabas happens to arrive at the house. Roger extends the invitation to him to stay at Collinwood, but Barnabas offers a counter-proposal – he wishes to stay at the Old House.

Act II

Elizabeth and Roger are astonished by this as the Old House is in disrepair and has not been utilized in decades, but Barnabas is politely insistent. He pleads with Elizabeth to take as much time as she needs to consider his proposal.

Act III

While Barnabas continues to talk with Roger, Elizabeth goes into another room and has another argument with Jason. She inquires about Willie Loomis and wants to know for certain whether he is gone for good. Jason begins to grow tired of Elizabeth's constant pestering and jovially threatens to call the police on her in regards to the great secret she has been keeping for the past eighteen years. Jason leaves Elizabeth and goes into the foyer where he meets Barnabas, who instantly distrusts Jason, but politely engages in a gentleman's conversation with him. Like Willie, Jason seems very interested in confirming that the "original" Barnabas, and presumably all the other Collinses, was burried with all his jewelry. Barnabas disabuses him of the idea.

Act IV

Later that night, Roger goes into Elizabeth's study and asks her about Barnabas' proposal. She likes Barnabas, but she is not ready to commit to a decision concerning his desire to move into the Old House. Roger realizes that he still has no idea where Barnabas is staying. At Eagle Hill Cemetery, Barnabas returns to the Collins family mausoleum.

Memorable quotes Edit

Barnabas: That house has been on my mind for many years. I feel I belong there. I know every inch of it... everything about it. I was brought up with that house as the background of my family.

Barnabas: There were even those who would like to consider Barnabas Collins dead. But he lived on. He lived on and outlived all of his enemies.

Jason: Let's just say that I do not like to see crime encouraged.

Roger: Jason likes to cultivate those who look like they have money. Oh, I do wish he wouldn't be quite so obvious about it.

Roger: If strangers can stay in this house, I can't see why a blood relative can't stay in the Old House.
