- The year is 1897. Intrigue and suspicion pervade the great house at Collinwood. Mysteries have begun here in the past that will affect the lives of all who live in the present. Terror appears with the sudden return of Laura Collins. The motive behind her return and the dark secrets of her past represent a threat to the entire Collins family. On this night, Barnabas Collins makes a secret effort to expose her and finds he has a dangerous witness.
We see Quentin outside the Old House. No Charity at all. Quentin vs. Barnabas, who calls Quentin’s bluff to tell Judith about his black arts... Barnabas, "I think we're in a position to help each other for once." Quentin explains Laura to Barnabas. The cable he received last night. Laura that was summoned and vanished was dressed in 18th century clothing. They agree about Laura.
Laura reappears to Dirk. Laura explains that she knows it was Barnabas trying to do this to her but why she does not know and says so.
Dirk, "Quentin seems to lead a rather, well, a rather charmed life." Dirk tells Laura about Jenny. Laura, "We're going to use Jenny to kill Quentin."
Barnabas and Quentin discuss what to do. They go to Laura. Laura tells them that Dirk was helping her move furniture but when Quentin notices nothing has been rearranged, Laura lies again that she's been chatting him up. Quentin notices she is in a chipper mood. She asks why they are there and Barnabas lies that he wants to show Quentin the portrait. She lies and tells them it is being reframed.
Jenny hums and her hair is wild. She is preparing her babies… in reality the dolls…for a funeral... Quentin's. Barnabas and Quentin discuss about what to do... again. Laura's voice is carried by the flames and the wind as she incants and wants Jenny to hear her. There seems to be a feedback sound. Jenny hears and eventually recognizes Laura's voice. Laura tells Jenny that Quentin is alive and at the Old House. Dirk opens the door and lets Jenny escape.
