She had survived an overturned mail carriage and survived the injuries, but later caught a fever and died. They fear that if she dies from a fever in the 1990's then Victoria will be trapped in the 1790 forever.

1790- Victoria walks through the garden surrounded by fog. She meets two children, Sarah and David whom she calls out too. He corrects her that his name is Daniel. She hears Barnabas calling to them and when he approaches he doesn't recognize her either. They are all dressed very strangely to Victoria, Barnabas comments on her strange clothing as well. He takes her inside the Old House and introduces her to his mother, Naomi Collins, his aunt, Abigail and the countess Natalie Du Pres. They each resemble someone from Victoria's time: Elizabeth, Mrs. Johnson and Julia. Barnabas tells them that she is the new tutor. Natalie comments on how striking her appearance is to Josette. Naomi questions Victoria on the whereabouts of Phyllis Wicke, but Victoria has no idea what has happened stating that she has fallen from her horse and injured her head. Natalie has Josette's maid, Angelique, provide Victoria with some of Angelique's clothing. Abigail questions Victoria about her clothing labels which none of them understand. The three women are astounded when Victoria has no idea what year it is or the fact that Maine is only a territory not a state. Abigail becomes convinced that Victoria is a witch and tries to convince her brother, Joshua Collins, that they should take Victoria to the baliff. Victoria overhears them and runs away to the Collinwood estate, but it is still under construction. She is in despair and tries to call out to the ghost of Sarh for help. She is overheard by a young man, Peter Bradford. he looks exactly like Joe and he is the main builder of the Collins family new home.

She takes it to the witch hunter Reverand Trask while he tortures a young woman. She tells him what has happend at the Collins estate. He tells her that Victoria must be a witch.
