Carl brings Pansy Faye, a mentalist who he fell in love with, to Collinwood.

Synopsis Edit

The great house at Collinwood in the year 1897, and a child has told his father of the strange discovery he made in the Old House on the estate. And so Barnabas Collins finds himself a suspect again, forced to answer Edward's questions, and realizes that if his secret is discovered now he will be powerless to help Chris Jennings and David Collins in the future.

Barnabas says he sent Dirk to that secret dark room he was so familiar with himself. He must be hiding in the estate. Carl comes in, he’s been in Atlantic City and he brought salt water taffy and urges Barnabas to eat it. When Barnabas opens the box it is empty. Carl claims "she" must have eaten it. Carl wants his girl, Pansy Faye to stay at the Old House until he can get Judith used to the idea. He wants Barnabas to be his best man. Carl presents Pansy Faye from Queen Victoria's England: a mentalist and songstress. She sings "I'm Gonna Dance For You". Pansy thinks Judith sounds nice but Carl is afraid of Judith. Pansy is cockney apparently and sings with a boa feather and is heavily made up. As a mentalist Carl thinks Pansy can find the missing servant Barnabas speaks of.

Barnabas has gone to the cottage. Carl has not done a practical joke in 48 hours since meeting Pansy. Last winter Carl brought somebody back to Collinwood. Carl tells Judith that Scotland Yard used Pansy once. He met her on a train. Beth asks Barnabas if Pansy does have powers. Carl brings Judith to the Old House so Barnabas sends Beth upstairs and then she is to go to Collinwood; he does not want Judith to know Beth is here. Pansy meets Judith. Pansy holds Dirk’s cufflink. A strange pan in or zoom in on Carl and then a zoom out. Carl turns music on. Pansy likes it better with the lights off. Pansy makes a joke. But of Dirk, she says, "He's dead and his murderer is in this room." She comes out of the trance she's in. Judith seems to forget her lines and of Pansy, calls her, "young lady", at that point. Carl is to marry her. Judith leaves, telling Carl she will go alone, not wanting to hear this. Carl chases after Judith. Pansy has no memory of what she said. That has never happened before. Pansy is attacked by a bat.

Beth and Barnabas found an undug coffin: Dirk. Judith wants Pansy to leave. If Carl leaves, he will do so without money and Judith wants him to never come back again. Barnabas finds Pansy Faye in the Old House in a chair still. She has fang marks on her neck.

Memorable quotes Edit

Barnabas: I couldn't convince Edward that a vampire is nonexistant, so we will have to give him one.

Carl: Do you realize that I haven't played a practical joke in almost forty-eight hours?

Pansy: If you'll turn down the lights it'll help me concentrate better, and I'll look a lot better!

Pansy: I've got to hear my music to get in the mood.
Judith: Yes, I'm sure you do.
