Barnabas Collins and Julia Hoffman have come to the town Barrettsville to investigate Julia’s family background. They find that century’s worth of selective inbreeding has produced a colony of strange dwarf creatures. The dwarves take the two of them to their leader, the preacher Redmond Swann. Swann takes both of them and locks them up inside of a barn. Barnabas instinctively falls into a death-like state as soon as the sun rises. Julia takes notes on the state of his condition and wonders if the lack of injections will have an adverse effect on Barnabas.
Meanwhile back at Collinwood, David Collins is up to his old tricks again. He has broken into Vickie’s room and taken some of her personal belongings. He has hidden himself in a secret basement room somewhere in the house. Carolyn and Vickie begin looking for him, but Elizabeth warns them about going into the basement. She doesn’t want people down there at all.
Later, Roger spends some time with Maggie down by the beach. On his way back to the house, he runs across Willie Loomis. Willie needs Roger’s car because he says that Barnabas is in trouble. Roger has no interest in helping Willie. Willie punches Roger to the ground and steals his keys.
Back in Barrettsville, Barnabas dreams of the time before he became a vampire. He remembers the year 1791 when he first gave his true love Josette an antique music box. Angelique was forced to play the part of a dutiful servant despite the love that she harbored for Barnabas.
As the sun goes down, Barnabas awakens. They are released from their cellar prison, and Barnabas attacks one of the dwarves.
