Barnabas finds Reverend Trask in the basement of the Old House, he walls Barnabas up in the same way as was done to him.

Synopsis Edit

In the great house of Collinwood there is a witch who thinks she is accepted as a wife, as a Collins, never knowing that at the Old House on the estate there are three people conducting a strange, hopeful seance. A seance designed to summon from the past a raging witch-hunter, buried alive behind a wall over two-hundred years ago.

Stokes, Julia, and Tony Peterson attempt to contact the ghost of Reverend Trask in the cellar of the Old House. To their amazement, a wall crumbles and reveals the skeleton of the long-dead witch-hunter. Julia gives him Dr. Lang's tape recorder to get him to leave. Barnabas finds Trask (or his ghost) in the basement of the Old House, he walls Barnabas up in the same way as was done to him.

Memorable quotes Edit

Professor Stokes: When people lie to me I always feel it's because they don't trust me enough to tell me the truth.
