Aristede straps and gags Quentin to a table, torturing him with a swinging blade pendulum and making it clear that Quentin will die if he doesn't give him the hand of Count Petofi.

Synopsis Edit

Collinwood before the turn of the century. For Quentin Collins this will be a night of unrelieved terror. He is the prisoner of two evil men in search of a mysterious hand with supernatural powers, and he will soon learn that he is to be the pawn in a game of life and death.

Quentin awakes to find himself tied up and his face has been restored. Aristede straps Quentin to a table and gags him as he sets a swinging blade pendulum in motion to torture Quentin. Aristede makes it clear that Quentin will die if he doesn't get the Hand. Barnabas gets the Hand for Julianka but at knifepoint later she takes it from Barnabas. Barnabas catches up with her in the woods and places her under his power. Aristede tells Angelique that Quentin will die unless she gives him the Hand.

Memorable quotes Edit

Quentin: You already got what you wanted from me.
Aristede: Yes, but I seem to have misplaced it again.

Dramatis personae Edit

Background information and notes Edit

Production Edit

Story Edit

  • Aristede's torture of Quentin is inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's short story The Pit and the Pendulum.
  • TIMELINE: It was tonight when Quentin unexpectedly transformed into the werewolf; he has been in Aristede's custody for less than an hour. Day 310 begins, and will end in 801/802. 12am: Quentin in Aristede's capture. It was earlier this evening when Barnabas and Angelique discussed helping Quentin at the Old House. Barnabas won't be able to bring Quentin to Julianka until tomorrow night. Quentin only has thirty minutes left until the pendulum kills him. (This piece of information is also given in the next episode.)

Bloopers and continuity errors Edit

  • After Aristede sits, a shadow moves at the bottom right of the screen.
  • Jonathan Frid struggles with the dialogue when addressing Julianka, "You must get that, cure that... uh... that curse immediately."
