Angelique and Barnabas explain to Quentin how they created a double and let it be destroyed.

Synopsis Edit

On this night at Collinwood, Barnabas has been introduced to a beautiful woman. To everyone else she is Kitty Soames, but Barnabas knows she is his beloved Josette. And on this night also, his happiness has been shattered by the announcement that Kitty Soames is to marry Edward Collins.

Kitty Soames comes to Barnabas' room as Josette, and they kiss before she comes to her senses and rushes away.

Barnabas meets with Angelique and Quentin, in Petofi's body, and they explain that Angelique captured Barnabas's mirror reflection, and that reflection brought to life was the Barnabas that was staked.

Charles Delaware Tate meets with Petofi, in Quentin's body, and Quentin forces him to perform the I-Ching trance. Tate discovers the way to the future for Petofi.

Bloopers and continuity errors: Edit

  • How was Angelique able to catch Barnabas's reflection in the mirror when vampires don't cast a reflection...
  • Jonathan Frid flubs the line "When Julia Hoffman came to the present... From the present..., " but he carries on quickly. The flub barely registers because, from the perspective of Barnabas, she has indeed come to the present from the present...!
