Barnabas predicts trouble for Collinwood when Nicholas Freeze, in whose antique shop Carolyn Stoddard works, discovers a centuries-old potion that promises eternal youth. Soon after, Mr. Freeze’s daughter Hazel, tricked into taking the serum, dies. Carolyn is grief-stricken over her friend’s death. Barnabas insists she stay on at the shop to watch Mr. Freeze and his associates — one of whom Carolyn suspects is Quentin Collins, back at Collinwood in a disguise.
Then Carolyn sees Hazel’s ghost. She interprets this as a warning that Mr. Freeze has marked her for his next victim. Despite the perceived threat, Barnabas refuses to let her quit.
Has Barnabas made a fatal mistake by deliberately endangering Carolyn’s life or will his plan avenge Hazel’s murder and put her spirit to rest?
