Charles puts the finishing touches to Quentin's portrait.

Synopsis Edit

Collinwood in the year 1897. The night is almost over and Barnabas still lies chained in his coffin, prisoner of the Count Petofi. During the hours of darkness Barnabas has pitted his powers against Petofi's, but to no avail. Petofi has destroyed his hold over Beth Chavez, by showing her a vision of a dreadful future that awaits her, if she should ever come to Barnabas Collins again.

Beth flees from Barnabas's coffin in fright. Petofi laughs and declares that Barnabas now has no choice, and must take him to the future.

Meanwhile, Charles Delaware Tate works on the portrait of Quentin Collins, and marvels at how much of Quentin's soul captured on the canvas. Tate briefly entertains the thought of destroying it, but is interrupted by Count Petofi, who seems aware of Tate's impulse and threatens that Tate will suffer if the painting is destroyed. Petofi reminds Tate that his "assignment" is to paint for as long and as well as he can.

Beth begs Quentin to take her and Quentin's daughter away from Collinwood, but he insists that the only way to lift the curse is to stay at Collinwood. Charity begs Beth to stay away from Quentin because of the curse.

Charity visits Tate as he finishes the portrait of Quentin. Charity announces that she no longer wants her portrait painted because she is afraid he would see a horrible secret and reveal it in a painting of her. She warns Tate to stay indoors when the moon is full. Tate realizes that Quentin is the werewolf. Petofi, eavesdropping on their visit, decides to deal with Charity before she talks too much.

Petofi visits Quentin at Collinwood and tells him he will save Jamison at the proper time. But his more immediate concern is to save Quentin--he is in grave danger from Charity Trask after showing her her father's confession. He says he will save Quentin because he is part of the future. He takes away Charity's voice.

Memorable quotes Edit

Count Petofi: Turn your back on him. Turn your back on him now, Beth Chavez, or you will die, and spend eternity as a vampire.

Count Petofi: She came to you because you are powerful. She left you because I am more powerful.

Charles: This portrait has captured more than Quentin Collins's face and body, it's captured his heart and mind and soul. It is Quentin Collins!

Production Edit

  • This episode was pre-empted for coverage of a celebration for the astronauts in Chicago. Originally scheduled for August 13, it was shifted forward a day to August 14. This pushed several episode numbers "out-of-sync", i.e Friday episodes ending in a 5 or 0, until 823/824 was double numbered.
  • The Collinsport Afghan appears at Charles' studio on the sofa.
  • There are no credits or cast list for this episode.
