Notes & Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Opening narration: Joan Bennett
- Closing still: Old House parlor
- Orignally, this episode first aired in black and white kinescope until the original color master reel was discovered later. The colorized version is the one that appears on the DVD.
- First appearance of Joshua Collins, Jeremiah Collins and Abigail Collins. Jeremiah was referenced as early as episode 2, when he was first identified as the great-great grandfather to Elizabeth Collins Stoddard. Since the writers had not envisioned the "1795 Flashback" storyline at that time, any information previously related to any of these period characters (with the exception of Barnabas) is apocryphal.
- First chronological appearance of the Great House at Collinwood.
Allusions[edit | edit source]
- Phyllis Wick is the original governess that Joshua hired to look after Sarah Collins. Victoria Winters switched places with her during the séance.
- Reference is made to Sarah Collins in this episode, but she does not make an appearance.
Bloopers[edit | edit source]
- Boom mike is clearly visible in the upper right corner of Vickie's bedroom in the opening scene when Abigail is watching her sleep.
