A seance is held in which a spirit takes over Sabrina and cries out "murder" pointing to Alexis.

Synopsis Edit

Teaser

The great estate of Collinwood in another band of time. A band so similar to our own, and yet so different. Barnabas Collins has reached this other time, hoping desperately to find himself free of his ancient curse. But instead, he is a prisoner, held within this chained coffin, unaware of the drama which goes on around him. As this night, a girl in shock makes a mysterious apperance at Collinwood.

Sabrina shows up at Collinwood and enters the drawing room. She sits down at the table and acts as if she is about to begin a séance. Meanwhile, Elizabeth and Roger walk down the stairs, wondering where Quentin, Maggie, and Hoffman has gone. They enter the drawing room and Sabrina announces that it is time for the séance to begin.

Act I

Roger is confused and tells Sabrina there will be no séance, but Sabrina, who appears to almost be in a trance, orders Elizabeth to have Cyrus, Quentin, Bruno, and Angelique come to Collinwood so the ceremony can begin. Roger hears the clock chime from the foyer and realizes the séance that caused Angelique's death began exactly six months ago. Elizabeth decides to call Cyrus.

Later that night, Sabrina is taken to an upstairs bedroom at Collinwood as Cyrus watches over her. She is still convinced that another séance must be held, but Elizabeth refuses.

Cyrus goes to Bruno's cottage and asks him to come to Collinwood. Bruno is sarcastically surprised by the invitation, but Cyrus thinks Bruno might be able to help her. Bruno wonders if Cyrus has something to do with Sabrina's condition, but Cyrus dismisses the notion. Cyrus explains that Sabrina wants to perform the séance again, but Bruno is against it because Angelique wouldn't be there.

Act II

Bruno becomes upset when he thinks about Angelique's death. Cyrus again asks him to come to Collinwood, but then suggests if another séance is held, then Alexis should take Angelique's place, and that is his only condition.

Roger is in Angelique's room at Collinwood, speaking to her portrait and wonders if she will ever return. He turns around and notices Alexis watching him, but he is convinced he is Angelique.

In Sabrina's room, Elizabeth asks Quentin for permission to hold a séance, but he refuses. Elizabeth wonders what happened to Maggie, but Quentin dodges her questions and leaves the room.

Roger is still impressed at Alexis' appearance. Alexis holds Roger's hand to convince him she isn't a ghost.

In the drawing room, Quentin grows increasingly frustrated with Elizabeth's questions about Maggie's whereabouts. Roger and Alexis soon arrive and he introduces her to Elizabeth. Alexis feels like she is intruding, but Sabrina stops her from leaving and says it is time to begin the séance.

Act III

As Quentin and Alexis talk in the foyer, Cyrus and Bruno enter, which immediatley upsets Quentin. Bruno immediatley suggests Alexis should fill in for Angelique, and Quentin gets even more upset. After more deliberation, Alexis finally agrees, but Quentin wants nothing to do with the séance and leaves.

Sabrina arranges the table exactly as it was six months earlier and Cyrus begins the ceremony. Moments later, Sabrina falls into a trance and only says "Let me go." She points across the table to Alexis and claims that she is dying. Sabrina exclaims "Murderer!" Alexis faints.
