Petofi holds Charity captive and sends Charles to tell Quentin that if he doesn't come to the cottage in half an hour, Charity will die.
Charles goes to Collinwood and finds Barnabas instead. He tells Charles that Quentin has already left Collinsport. Reluctantly, Charles agrees to take Barnabas to Petofi instead.
Barnabas arrives at Petofi's cottage. Petofi is angered at getting Barnabas instead, but soon realizes that he can take his body into the future instead of Quentin's. Especially since the Collins family of 1969 will greet him with open arms.
Petofi causes Barnabas to lose consciousness and lays him on the couch. He then sits down and goes into a trance to take over Barnabas's body. But as he falls into his trance, Garth Blackwood, fully recovered from his wound, enters the cottage and chains Petofi's hands together so that he can't use his powers. He slaps Petofi with his gloves, causing him to wake up. Petofi tries to attack Blackwood, but finds that he can't.
