- The great house at Collinwood stands deserted. A ghost walks the silent rooms, waiting for a possessed child to die. But Barnabas Collins, determined to thwart the spirit, finds himself back in the year 1897, and Barnabas discovers that his presence there changes the history he knows happened. For Quentin, killed and buried, has risen from his grave, a robot following the orders of a vengeful Angelique.
Quentin puts Rachel in his coffin. Sandor finds Rachel and saves her; however, he is attacked by Quentin. When Barnabas rises at dusk, he finds Quentin sitting in a chair near his coffin. Barnabas performs a ritual to return Quentin’s spirit to his body; however, it fails.

- Magda: Oh, the hero.
- Sandor: Shut up. I cannot hit you, my arm's too sore.

- Rachel: Thank you, Sandor
- Sandor: I don't like to see a beautiful lady getting buried before her time.
- Rachel: How can a man be dead and yet walk? Should I begin believing in everything else, too? Ghosts, witches, werewolves?

Bloopers and continuity errors Edit
- Smoke from the graveyard drifts into the drawing room.
- A boom microphone appears several times during the first scene with Barnabas, Magda and Sandor.
- When Quentin puts Rachel down, her head causes one of the big boulders to move about, in reality a styrofoam rock.
- When Rachel touches the banister of the Old House it shakes about.
- A cough can be heard as Rachel sits down.
- Grayson Hall flubs to Frid, "He is under your control, not mine" when the line probably should have been "He is under your control, not me".
- As Barnabas closes his coffin and sees Quentin, Thayer David's shadow can be seen moving at the top of the stairs long before Sandor enters the scene.
