The storyline followed events established in the previous arc, "The Ghost of Quentin Collins", and involved the central protagonist of Barnabas Collins, traveling backwards in time to the year 1897 in the hopes of altaring the past, thus saving the future fates of the children David Collins and Amy Jennings. The storyline was key for turning the previous antagonist Quentin Collins into a tragic and somewhat heroic character.
