Tim brings food to Jamison who has been locked up by Gregory. Later, Jamison escapes from the school and goes back to Collinwood.

Synopsis Edit

Collinwood before the turn of the century and Quentin Collins has become the victim of an evil curse that will follow him all the days of his life. On this night, with the rising of the full moon, a young woman finds out the terrible thing he is destined to be.

Charity is troubled over Dorcas's murder, and goes to Tim for comfort. He finds her fear understandable, but tells her that it is very unlikely that anyone else is in danger. She offers to help him with the students' work, but he prefers to be left alone.

After she leaves Tim goes into the closet where Jamison is being held. Jamison is clearly happy to see him, but Tim sadly informs him that he can't let him out. He does however give Jamison some food, which the boy eagerly devours, being sick of bread and water. A moment later they are interrupted by a knock at the door. Tim locks Jamison back up and opens the classroom door to find his suspicious fiancée on the other side. Charity questions why he locked the door and doesn't believe his explanation. She goes to the locked room and questions Jamison. Although he denies seeing Tim, Charity discovers the food he was hiding.

Jamison runs away. Charity and Tim seek him at Collinwood, but are unable to find him.

Memorable quotes Edit

Tim: Reverend Trask can always think of something to add to any punishment.

Charity: I can always tell when people are concealing the truth.
Tim: That seems to be an extraordinary family trait.

Charity: Each and every one of us is doomed.

Story Edit

Bloopers and continuity errors Edit

  • At the start of the episode, as the werewolf runs out of Quentin's room, a crew member appears behind the wall prop. As the werewolf runs by, the crew member backs out of shot.
  • The clock in the Worthington Hall school room is stuck at 10.
  • At the start of the episode, Tim turns the oil lamp fuel knob to create a large flame just before he tells Charity to come in. No one goes near it before or after the title sequence, but the next time it is seen, as Tim moves over to the desk with the lamp flame, it is back to its original state, i.e., a bare-minimum flame.
  • A boom microphone shadow can be seen as Beth runs out to the foyer towards Jamison.
