At the great house of Collinwood Victoria Winters has returned to the present day from her strange and haunting adventure in the past. But the terrible events she lived through there are beginning to change not only her life, but the fates of those around her.

Later, she purchases a portrait that she brings home to Collinwood, which happens to be a likeness of the witch Angelique.

Allusions[edit | edit source]
- Victoria Winters was trapped in the year 1795 where she lived with the 18th century version of the Collins family from episode 366 to episode 460.
- Peter Bradford was sentenced to die by hanging for the murder of Noah Gifford (which was actually committed by Victoria Winters in self defense in episode 455). Peter's execution took place following Victoris' which was suspended due to her unexpected return to the present.
Bloopers[edit | edit source]
- The dates on Peter Bradford's tombstone state that he was born on January 18th, 1770 and died on April 3rd, 1795. This should actually read 1796, as it was already late November when Victoria Winters first arrived in 1795, which was some months prior to her and Peter's execution.
