- Collinwood in the year 1897, where Barnabas Collins has returned to save a life in the present. Barnabas' mission is in jeopardy for Quentin has died before his time and returned as a zombie, and his spirit has inhabited a child. Now Barnabas must try desperately to lure the spirit from the child into the unthinking body.
At Edward's request, Reverend Gregory Trask shows up to take Nora and Jamison to his boarding school, Worthington Hall. Trask finds that Jamison is possessed and performs a ceremony on Jamison and Quentin’s body.
Memorable quotes Edit
- Barnabas: I've learned nothing can be known for sure.
- Gregory: Do not come in. You would only aid the devil's work.
Rev. Trask (to Judith): Peace! That is what we are all after. Peace within ourselves. It’s so enormously difficult to find. One must begin with the child. Let the seed of contentment grow. Show the child how to protect himself from the forces of anarchy, which exist in all of us.
- Barnabas: I have lived long enough to doubt nothing, but I have also lived long enough not to expect miracles.

Bloopers and continuity errors Edit
- While Judith and Barnabas talk, the closed door opens by itself.
- The shadow of the boom microphone flies overhead shortly after Barnabas sees Trask.
- Jerry Lacy looks directly at the teleprompter several times.
- Barnabas repeats a line that Judith just said: "All I can think about is what is happening behind those doors.” It's unclear if Barnabas is meant to just concur with what Judith said or if he is mistakenly repeating her line.
