Jeff is in the garden when Eve appears. She takes one look at him, and calls him Peter Bradford. He says that's not his name, and she tells him it is. She says he's dressed oddly, but everything else is the same. She tells him that she watched him die. He tells her that he's never seen her before in his life. She accuses him of pretending, and he assumes she's joking. She says she realizes that he doesn't recognize her because she doesn't look the same. She says she can't remember anything other than him, and he tells her to go away. She asks why he's getting so upset if he doesn't believe her. He tries to convince her that she's made a mistake, but she can't be convinced. She is sure he is her Peter Bradford, and she longs for them to be together again.

Vicki finds Liz in the drawing room, and is pleased that she appears better. Liz asks her to invite Jeff over sometime so she can thank him. Vicki says that he's coming tonight. Liz asks if they're back together, and Vicki tells her that they've decided to get married. Liz asks if she's planning to leave Collinwood. Vicki tells her she's not sure what their plans are. Liz asks if she can help with the wedding preparations to keep her occupied, which might allow her to believe that she'll live long enough to see Vicki married. Vicki dismisses her concern and Liz says that the next time she 'appears' to die, she might find herself buried alive.

Vicki finds Jeff in the garden and asks him in so Liz can thank him. He seems nervous, and suggests he can see Liz after the movie. He tells her that he doesn't want to let Roger down again.

They leave, and Eve appears. Liz comes outside and finds her. She asks who she is, and then suggests that she's the angel of death.

Eve returns to Blair's house, and he accuses her of attempting to ruin his plans. He says that Adam told him about what happened at Collinwood. She makes fun of Adam and Blair slaps her.

He asks where she went after her fight with Adam. She says she was outside in the garden. Blair tells her it's dangerous for her to be wandering around Collinwood. He says if anyone sees her, they will start asking questions. She says she knows the right answers. He asks her who she talked to. She tells him that she doesn't know what his plans are, but he's sure she's valuable to him. He admits that she is, but adds that she's not indispensable. He asks who she met with, and she says she'll tell him if he tells her who she was and where she came from before the experiment. He says she was no one, and she knows that he's lying. She said she recognized someone from another lifetime, and she wants him to tell her who she was.

Blair is fascinated by her claim. He says the less she knows about her past life, the better. He asks who she met, and she says she doesn't want him in danger. She tells him it was Peter Bradford, but he says his name is Jeff Clark. Blair says there are forces at work that he doesn't know about. Eve tells Blair she'll do anything he wants, but he must tell her. He says that she will tell him, and has her sit down and stare into a candle flame. He hypnotizes her, sending her back in time.

Eve finds herself back in 1795 with Peter Bradford. He says she killed someone, and she explains that she did so because Phillipe was going to kill him. He says that he loved her once, but he's going to the authorities, and will tell them everything about her. He tells her she has until the morning to get out of Collinsport, and tells her that he never wants to see her again.

Eve comes out of the hypnosis, saying that he is Peter Bradford, and she loves him.

Our thoughts

John: It seems like it has been a while since we've see one of Jeff's frustrated head grabs!

Christine: His most recent head clutching was in Episode 582, which means he's appeared in about four episodes since then where the dramatic head grasp was not employed.

John: Which movie do you think Jeff took Vicki to tonight? I'd like to think they saw Night of the Living Dead, but knowing Jeff, they probably saw Romeo and Juliet.
  • Barbarella
  • 2001: A Space Odyssey
  • Rosemary's Baby
  • Bullitt
  • Night of the Living Dead 
  • Once Upon a Time in the West 
  • Romeo and Juliet 
  • Planet of the Apes 
Christine: I think Vicki probably wanted to see Oliver! but Jeff took her to Ice Station Zebra instead. On the other hand, he may have taken her to Night of the Living Dead just so she'd get scared and cuddle up.

John: It certainly seems like everything is being set up for another flashback. It will be interesting to see how they reconcile Peter Bradford's story.

Christine: So, let me get this straight. Bradford was having an affair with Danielle Roget and got bent out of shape because she killed her lover, Phillipe Cordiet, to prevent him from killing Peter, which must have happened before he met Vicki. It sounds like another Angelique-Barnabas one sided love affair. What was up with him holding his fist up to her? Was he thinking of punching her? One thing we know for certain is that these two will be trying to one-up each other in the over the top acting department.
