Barnabas visits the Collinsport Inn and meets Maggie.

Synopsis Edit

Teaser

My name is Victoria Winters. The residents of Collinwood are aware of a stranger in their midst, a man whose presence is felt by all. Others, far away from the great house are soon to be aware of his presence, are soon to be aware of the mystery that surrounds him.

At the diner in the Collinsport Inn, Maggie is preparing to close up for the evening when she is startled by Barnabas Collins.

Act I

Barnabas apologizes and politely asks her for a cup of coffee. Maggie consents and the two engage upon a pleasant conversation. Barnabas shows Maggie his Wolf's-head cane and explains how it is his prized possession. With obvious deliberation, he hangs it from the back of a chair. Maggie becomes nervous when the howling of dogs can be heard outside.

Act II

Barnabas prepares to leave, and Maggie tells him her last name is Evans; he seems to recognize it. Barnabas leaves the diner and his cane behind. Several moments later, Maggie's boyfriend, Joe comes through the front door. Maggie tells Joe that she just met the latest member of the Collins family to move into Collinsport. Joe interjects with information concerning a woman named Jane Ackerman who had been attacked earlier in the evening. Maggie is concerned about the matter, but quickly changes the subject. She notices that Barnabas, who she sensed is a very lonely person, left his cane behind and asks Joe to take her to the Old House so that she might return it to him.

Act III

The two arrive at the Old House but Barnabas does not seem to be around. One of the doorknobs turns and the front door creaks open; Joe calls out, but there's no answer. Maggie suggests going inside, and Joe reluctantly follows. Maggie wanders about the drawing room while Joe checks upstairs. Maggie turns back towards the foyer to find Barnabas standing right behind her. Barnabas apologises for startling her again, and is nonplussed to discover that she is not alone. She introduces him to Joe and they return his cane to him before leaving. As the door shuts, Willie enters the room and asks Barnabas what his intentions toward Maggie are.

Act IV

Joe and Maggie arrive at the Evans cottage. They discuss Barnabas, and Maggie admits to being afraid of him. Joe brushes it off, thinking the atmosphere of the Old House affected her. Meanwhile, Willie accuses Barnabas of intentionally leaving his cane in the coffee shop. Barnabas is angered by Willie's gruff demeanor and bitingly tells Willie that he has no obligation to explain himself. He then reminds Willie that he has a job to do and orders him to go do it. Willie tries to beg off the mysterious job, claiming that he fears he will lose his mind. Barnabas gives Willie a look that makes him fear more for his safety than his sanity, and he rushes out the door. As dogs howl in the night, Barnabas goes to a window and stares outside. At that moment, Maggie behaves oddly as if she were in a trance. She tells Joe that she feels as if someone were looking right through her. We see Barnabas with his eyes glowing in the light of a candle.
