Gregory asks Judith to marry him, she agrees and they are married that night.

Synopsis Edit

Collinwood, 1897. Barnabas Collins' mission to the past has been thrown into jeopardy by the discovery that he is a vampire. And now, even while he tries to help Quentin with the legendary hand of Oshden, he must hide in a secret cave from those who would end his curse forever.

Evan banters with Barnabas while brandishing a cross for protection, and quips that while Barnabas can make himself seem to disappear, disappearing now into the sunlight would cause him to burn. "A lack of foresight," Evan says; Barnabas has no other place to go. Barnabas claims to have never known confession, and that he has no intention of starting now. Evan wants the Hand of Count Petofi which is from the Forest of Oshden. Evan recognizes that the Hand cured Charity of Barnabas's influence.

Judith is reluctant to believe that Barnabas is the Collins family secret. "Sometimes I think this family's been cursed." Trask says, "The evil men do live after them."

Trask tells Judith he holds no judgments. He thinks he should close the school and leave. Judith fears that the Collins family and their trials have offended the Reverend. He denies this and asks Judith to marry him. Judith admits that no one has ever proposed to her and that grandmamma always said that Judith frightened men away and that she was too strong. She accepts his proposal, and Trask insists the rite be performed this very day, quoting Leviticus, "Do as your conscience guides you, so that you will not offend," knowing that Judith's brothers will try to prevent the union. They decide to go to the Village and get married.

Magda goes to Barnabas and they consider using the hand on Evan. Discussing whether it can be trusted, Magda reveals, "In this world or another Petofi makes the hand do what he wants." It was cut off for payment. Legend says some nights Petofi crys for the return of his hand, but that the power of the Gypsy people prevents this from happening.

Barnabas says, "How mad the world has become that my future and David's and Chris Jennings' all depend on a man we’ve never known."

Magda does the incantation. Evan comes to the cave. Barnabas tells him the Hand is that of the most evil man in the world. Knowing this, Evan takes off his cross. Something is moving in the cave behind Evan. Barnabas is told to leave, and he does.

Returning to Collinwood, Judith and Trask talk. Trask calls the drawing room frivolous. He will want to change it despite the fact that there are family heirlooms in it. Judith gasps and exclaims that she saw Minerva by the widows. We see no one.

Evan has his hands on the box. The Hand attacks Evan and he falls. Barnabas returns and gasps--Evan is now witless, docile, and his face is horribly misshapen. Barnabas decides that the Hand cannot safely be used on Evan or Quentin.

Memorable quotes Edit

Barnabas: If it is the end, let it be now.

Evan: I am very good at keeping secrets, Mr. Collins. You shall find that out.
