Episode 372 of Dark Shadows was directed by Lela Swift and written by Ron Sproat. It first aired on Tuesday, November 28th, 1967. This episode is part of a storyline commonly referred to as the "1795 Flashback" story. In this episode, Victoria Winters is drawn deeper into the intrigues surrounding the Collins family of the year 1795. She meets the indentured servant Ben Stokes and inadvertently gets him into trouble with his master, Joshua Collins. She also pokes around in Angélique's bedroom and comes upon a misplaced handkerchief and toy soldier - both of which are instruments that Angélique uses to enrapture the mind of Ben Stokes.

Character oddities[edit | edit source]

  • Ben is smart? How in the heck does someone like Ben Stokes know what Nightshade is? While he may not be aware of its usefulness in mystic spells, he does know that it is deadly. He can also apparently identify it on sight.
  • Vickie is rude. Victoria Winters has no reservation about barging through people's rooms and nosing about. One would think that in an environment where people don't trust her to begin with, she would really pay attention to her Ps and Qs.
  • Vickie is dumb: Once again, Victoria Winters expresses her traditional alarmist reaction to seeing someone who reminds her of someone from her own time period. She has been living in the past for a few days now, you would think she would begin to get accustomed to the strangeness. At the very least, you would think that she could stifle her reaction so as to not make a scene. Regardless, Vickie does not immediately make the connection that Ben Stokes is not Matthew Morgan, despite the fact that they look the same.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • Angélique Bouchard: Ben Stokes. You no longer have a will of your own. My will is your will. You shall do whatever I tell you to do. You shall be my slave.
