Chris cuts short a date with Carolyn to go back to his room where he turns into a werewolf and later attacks a waitress at the Blue Whale.

Synopsis Edit

A little girl spends her first night in the great house of Collinwood, a night of strange, weird discoveries. For she finds an ancient telephone, its wires hanging loose. But when she picks up the receiver, she hears a faint voice from the past, a voice which orders her to come to him. She knows not why.

David and Amy hold a seance to contact Quentin, however they don't reach him. Chris comes to see Amy to tell her he will not be able to take care of her. Carolyn steps in and volunteers to keep Amy at Collinwood. Carolyn and Chris have a drink at the Blue Whale where Chris sees the mark of the pentagram on the waitress. Later a werewolf breaks into the Blue Whale and kills the waitress.

Memorable quotes Edit

David: (about the seance) I've done this lots of times.

Carolyn: You haven't changed.
Chris: Haven't I?

Dramatis personae Edit

Background information and notes Edit

Production Edit

  • First appearance of a werewolf in full makeup.
  • Alex Stevens is uncredited for his role as the werewolf, but is instead credited for stunts in the middle of the cast list.

Story Edit

  • A red upside down pentacle appears over the the barmaid's face when Chris looks at her to pay his check. This is a sign of satanic ritual, as in the practice of Wicca, the pentacle is right side up. Though it is unclear if the writers knew of the significance or difference between an upside down pentacle and one that is right side up. This is also a reference to the 1941 Universal Monster film The Wolfman, in which a pentacle appears on next destined victim of the werewolf.
  • It's been a long time since Carolyn last met Chris.
  • Chris Jennings meets Victoria Winters for the first time.
  • The current season is winter.
  • GHOSTWATCH: Quentin's ghost talks to Amy on an old telephone. David and Amy hold a seance to contact Quentin.
  • TIMELINE: 5pm: Carolyn and Chris at the Blue Whale. Day 252 begins, and will end in 643. 1am: Chris attacks the Blue Whale waitress.

Bloopers and continuity errors Edit

  • David says, "I know what we can do," and Denise Nickerson sensing a long pause, asks, "What?" After another long pause, David Henesy delivers the line.
  • A boom microphone shadow can be seen over Carolyn's head as Victoria takes Chris upstairs to see Amy.
  • David Henesy flubs when he says "Don't feel too bad, Amy. I don't like to feel my -- I don't like to see my relatives." He flubs again when he says, "'d be... you'd like..."
  • The clock at the Blue Whale says 1:00 while Carolyn and Chris are there, and Carolyn notes that it's getting dark early. The clock is set for the later scene, when the Barmaid is closing up.
