Carl returns to Collinwood and tells Gregory that Barnabas is the vampire.

Synopsis Edit

Collinwood before the turn of the century, a time which promises death and disaster for Barnabas Collins. His secret has been discovered by two men, and one has turned on the other and locked him in the secret room where the vampire lies, knowing that when Barnabas rises, the man will be killed.

Trask arrives, inquiring after Judith, who is in town. Trask finds Quentin in the drawing room listening to his gramophone, and is indignant at Quentin's indulging in such pleasures. Quentin teases Trask that the music tempts Trask to think of dancing, women wearing low cut gowns, and whispered laughter.

Carl tells Trask, "Barnabas Collins is the vampire." Quentin comes in and Barnabas bares his fangs. Quentin stops him and tells him the truth, that he knows, and that Carl knows, too. Barnabas sends Quentin off to deal with Carl.

Carl takes him to the mausoleum and Trask tells Carl he had known about this room for months. When they find the coffin gone, Carl runs out. Trask vows to help Carl to drive the devils from his mind.

At Collinwood, in the dark drawing room, Carl tries to use the phone, completely unaware that although the cut wire is dangling before him, the phone is out of commission. A bat shadow is seen outside. Barnabas then appears in the corner. He haunts Carl first and then chokes Carl. Quentin later finds Carl's dead body and is sad about it. Trask comes into the house, and Quentin tries to stall him from entering the drawing room. The body of Carl is seen by Quentin behind the curtains and it falls out to the two men.

Trask goes to the Old House and confronts Barnabas. "I'm afraid I don’t know what you mean," he tells Trask. Trask accuses Barnabas of being in league with the devil. He brandishes a cross at Barnabas, who recoils. Trask challenges Barnabas to stay until the sun rises.
