The Collins Family mourns the apparent death of Barnabas as they move into the new Collinwood mansion. Meanwhile, Peter enlists Natalie's help to help Victoria prove her innocence. That same night, Barnabas rises as vampire and first makes Millicent his first victim. The vampire attacks in Collinsport only increase the evil and fanatical Trask's belief that the incarcerated Victoria is responsible. Victoria tries to persuade Josette to leave Collinsport before something happens to her. In the present, Joe discovers that Carolyn is under Barnabas' control. When Sheriff Patterson refuses to do anything, Joe plots to take matters into his own hands. Written by Larry B.

Several costumes from the film Dangerous Liaisons (1988) were used in the scenes set in 1790, notably two dresses originally worn by Glenn Close and Uma Thurman. See more »

In fact, the words gram and kilogram weren't truly adopted until December 1799 by the French, and simply would not have appeared on shipments in 1795. See more »


Victoria Winters: Peter told me about Barnabas. I don't think I've quite taken it in yet. There's a man where I come from. He's so like Barnabas. His descendant, his namesake, in fact. I thought perhaps I was falling in love with him. But I guess that was just a fantasy really. But I feel as if I can look in your heart and understand.
Josette du Pres: I believe you are the only who can, Victoria. Come and sit down. I told you once before how I seemed to know you as I know myself. Well, now though my head spins to imagine it, I ...
