Aristede rigs the door to where Julia is held so that she will be shot when anyone enters the room.

Synopsis Edit

The turn of the century at Collinwood, where on this night Julia Hoffman has been abducted by the notorious Count Petofi and taken to an abandoned mill not far away. There she has been forced to tell how, through the mystery of the I-Ching, she was able to come back to the year 1897. Now Count Petofi himself has gone into the I-Ching trance in an effort to transport himself into the future.

Aristede finds Julia in the midst of an escape attempt and stops her. Petofi enters an I-Ching trance and finds himself at a gypsy tribunal, where many magical artifacts are arrayed on a table; when he tries to leave he finds the doors blocked before nearly being strangled by his own Hand.

On the way to the Old House, Barnabas encounters Beth and apologizes for the past, and asks her to find where Petofi is holding Julia.

The Count breaks free of the trance and demands to know why he was sent among the gypsies. Petofi offers Julia one final chance to reveal the secret of the I-Ching wands.

Aristede reflects on possible ways to torture Julia, before settling for rigging the door so that Julia will be shot if anyone enters the room.

Barnabas confronts Aristede about where Julia is being held. Barnabas opens the door and the gun fires.

Memorable quotes Edit

Count Petofi: Look at Aristede here. In point of fact, I don't need a servant. The boy himself is no intellectual giant. He detests all forms of culture. Why then do I keep him on? Because I am a man who by nature shuns all forms of violence. I loathe the sight of blood. Aristede on the other hand has no such scruples. He revels in every form of torture and bloodshed known to the mind of man. I believe he even invented a few himself.
