In Quentin's room, Amy tells David that his Aunt isn't really dead. He doesn't believe her. She tells him that Quentin will tell him. She asks for a sign, and the Victrola begins to play Quentin's Theme. They then hear his laughter.
Amy asks if he feels better now that they've spoken to Quentin, and he says that he does. He tells her it's time for them to do what they were told to do.
Barnabas asks Mrs. Johnson how Carolyn is doing. She says Julia gave her a sedative, so she's calmed down. She says that David was still crying. Mrs. Johnson says Vicki would have known what to do, and points out that Maggie left the children. He explains that she had to go into town, but that the children are fine. She asks if he got hold of Roger, and he tells her that he hasn't had any luck reaching him in London. She asks him if the burial arrangements have been made, and he tells her they have. He tells her she won't have an ordinary burial. He says that her will was specific about the casket and mausoleum, and he will ensure that her wishes are carried out. There's a knock at the door.
Mrs. Johnson opens the door for Mr. Jarret. He's there to see Barnabas. She shows him in to the drawing room, and he tells Barnabas he's sorry to meet him under such circumstances. He says he was shocked to hear of Liz' death, and the entire town will be, too. Barnabas is shocked, and asks who he is. He says he's from the funeral home. He explains that Barnabas called him. He denies that he did, and asks about the person who called. He says his wife said the caller sounded like a man. He asks if they'll need his services, and Barnabas explains that other arrangements have already been made. He leaves, and Mrs. Johnson says no one in the house would have made the call.
David and Amy apologize to Quentin. They tell him they made the call, but Barnabas sent the man away. A chandelier rocks above them.
Barnabas says he spoke to everyone in the house, and no one made the call. David and Amy come in, and Barnabas asks if he's alright. He says he is, and then asks to go outside. Barnabas asks if he called a man in town about his aunt. David says he doesn't want to think of his aunt. Barnabas says they can go outside. Barnabas feels bad about asking David about the call.
Amy tells David they're getting good about fooling them. He says they need to be careful and not make any mistakes.
Maggie is in the foyer when Barnabas returns. He says he'll tell the kids that he'll take them away for awhile. She asks if he'll tell them about boarding schools. She says she's happy to go with them to Boston to help with the kids. Mrs. Johnson returns with the kids, and she and Maggie go upstairs. Barnabas asks the kids if they'd like to go to Boston with him. They both agree. He says they'll leave in a few days, and Maggie will be joining them. Barnabas says if they like Boston, they might want to go to school there. David is surprised by this. Barnabas leaves to make arrangements, and Amy tells David that Quentin said they can never leave. They go to see him.
Mrs. Johnson and Maggie pack up Vicki's clothes. Barnabas comes upstairs and tells Maggie they will go to Boston with the children in a few days. Mrs. Johnson asks what they should do with Vicki's things, and he tells her to get rid of all of it. Mrs. Johnson asks about a music box, and he says to get rid of that, too. They leave him alone in Vicki's room. He tells himself that he's got to forget Vicki.
Amy and David call for Quentin to appear. They say they're going to be sent away, and asks him what to do.
Maggie comes downstairs looking for David and Amy. Mrs. Johnson comes in and says she stored Vicki's things in the basement. She tells Maggie that the house, and everyone under its roof, are cursed. Maggie asks if she's seen the kids. They then hear someone playing the piano. Maggie asks them how they got into the drawing room. David tells her they fooled her. He says they were hiding. Amy backs him up. They then go up to their rooms; arms around each other.
Maggie starts to unpack, but finds the closet in Vicki's room still full of clothes. She calls for Mrs. Johnson. When she arrives, she asks if she brought Vicki's things back. Mrs. Johnson is shocked to see them. She says it's a sign. Barnabas enters, and Mrs. Johnson says that Vicki is trying to reach them, to tell them that she's coming back.
John: Why exactly would Roger be so difficult to find in London? Wasn't he going on business? And wouldn't they keep after it until they reached him?
Christine: It certainly makes me question the kind of business he is doing there to be completely incommunicado. I like how Barnabas' first order of business is to ship the kids off to boarding school. I wonder what makes him think that's his decision to make. He's not the legal guardian of either one of them, and should at least consult Carolyn before making that decision.
John: So should we assume that Mr. Jarret was looking for Mr. Jonathan Frid when he asked for Mr. Jonathan?
Christine: I think that's a fair assumption. It's great to have Mrs. Johnson back to help everyone deal with the trauma of Liz's apparent demise by overdramatizing the situation. How is it that Amy knows she's not dead and David does not? It's also nice to see that Maggie is continuing the tradition of not doing any real work of caring for the children as their governess.
John: While I can understand Quentin wanting to prank Barnabas by having David call a funeral director, what did that ghost think was going to happen? That they'd just let him come in and take over with the arrangements?
Christine: Quentin is apparently stuck in that room with only his little minions to do his bidding, which must make his options for exacting revenge limited. He'd probably get a lot more accomplished if he possessed Mrs. Johnson. I'm surprised Barnabas told her to get rid of Josette's music box, and disappointed that it didn't refresh Maggie's memory to hear it.
