Barnabas and Jennings continue to struggle. Jennings overcomes
Barnabas and knocks him to the floor, unconscious. Just then, the
cock crows. Jennings quickly flees into his coffin.
At the old house in Josette’s room, Julia moans, “The light…” and
asks Elizabeth to draw the curtains. Elizabeth does.
In the crypt, Barnabas regains conciousness and opens the coffin,
finding Jennings in it. He pauses and thinks about how he was once
a vampire and starts to feel guilty about destroying Tom, but then
decides he must to save Julia. He picks up the hammer and stake and
pounds the stake into Tom. Jennings screams horribly.
At the old house, Julia moans.
Barnabas leaves the crypt, planning to bury Jennings at night
when no one can see him. Unknown to him, Nicholas Blair is outside
watching from behind some bushes. After Barnabas is gone, Blair
goes inside, opens the coffin and looks inside.
At the old house, Julia asks Elizabeth for a mirror. Elizabeth
gets one for her. Julia looks in the mirror and finds that the
bite marks on her throat are gone. Barnabas returns and tells
Elizabeth he’d like to speak to Julia in private. Elizabeth
leaves. Barnabas tells Julia he’s staked Tom Jennings.
Downstairs, Elizabeth looks out the window and sees Roger coming.
Roger knocks at the front door. Receiving no answer, he opens
the door and comes in. He sees no one around. Barnabas comes down
the stairs. Elizabeth is hiding behind a chair. Roger tells Barnabas
that he had found Elizabeth, but that she’s escaped and is missing.
Barnabas tells him that Elizabeth’s right here at the old house,
that she had come over last night. Roger angrily asks Barnabas why
he did not tell him, saying, “You knew I was worried about her!”.
Barnabas reples that Julia’s sick, that he was worried about her and
wasn’t thinking straight. Elizabeth angrily pops up from behind the
chair and angrily shouts to Roger, “You’re not worried about me!
You want to send me back to Windcliff!”. She starts babbling about
a “Windcliff conspiracy” to have her buried alive and says Julia is
involved. She recounts how she followed Julia last night and found where
they’re hiding the coffin they plan to bury her in. Roger decides
to go see for himself. Barnabas, not knowing what else to do, tells
Roger he’ll accompany him. Blair comes bearing flowers for Julia.
Roger and Barnabas tell him they have something to do and leave.
Blair goes upstairs to talk to Julia. He tells her he is happy to
see that she is better and be able to get back to work, that she must
have a lot to do. Julia becomes suspicious and insinuates that he
must have some ulterior motive for being so concerned for her health,
but Blair just jokes, “Maybe I’m planning to become sick and want
you available to treat me”.
Roger and Barnabas arrive outside the crypt. Barnabas is desperate
and suggests to Roger that even if there is a coffin in there, maybe
they should just note that it’s there but not open it out of respect
for whoever’s buried in it. But when Roger opens the door to the
crypt, there is no coffin in there. Barnabas wonders to himself,
“What could this mean?! What could this mean?!”.
Barnabas and Roger return to the old house. Roger tells Elizabeth
that there was no coffin in the crypt. Desperate, Elizabeth tells
Roger to go upstairs and asks Julia.
Roger goes upstairs and tells Julia about Elizabeth’s claim that
she followed her to a crypt containing a coffin, adding that when
he and Barnabas went to inspect the crypt, there was no coffin there.
He asks her if she saw a coffin there last night. Julia admits to
wandering to the crypt last night in her delirium, but tells Roger
she no coffin there, that Elizabeth in fact never even went into the
crypt must have been imagining it. Roger tells Julia that this has
convinced him that Elizabeth is still mentally ill and must be sent
back to Windcliff, but Julia dissuades him from this, saying that
Elizabeth has become so afraid of Windcliff that further treatment
there will do her no good, that it would be better to keep Elizabeth at
Collinwood and let her (Julia) treat her at home. Barnabas comes into
the room and asks Roger to go downstairs, saying Elizabeth is accusing
Roger and Elizabeth of plotting against him upstairs. Roger leaves.
Barnabas tells Julia he wonders who could have removed the coffin.
Julia tells Barnabas that she found Blair’s visit – both its timing
and content – very suspicious, and suggests it might have been him.
But Barnabas tells her there’s someone else he must find first – the
person who knew about Jennings for certain – the vampire who bit him.
He tells her, “He’s the person I must find!”, mistakenly assuming the
vampire to be a man.

Julia comes downstairs into the living room of the old house.
Barnabas is surprised to see that she’s up and suggests she get more
rest, but Julia tells him she’s OK and has something important to
do – she wants to see Maggie Evans and asks her some questions about
Nicholas Blair, saying that Nicholas Blair has been talking to Maggie
a lot recently – ostensibly about buying a painting from her. She tells
Barnabas that maybe Maggie knows something about Blair, whom no one else
knows anything about except he’s claiming to be Cassandra’s brother, a
claim they know to be false. She tells Barnabas that she’s sure Blair
has something to do with Jennings. Barnabas notes that Blair cannot
be the vampire because he exists by day. Julia agrees, but says she is
still sure Blair has something to do with the vampire.
At the Evan’s cottage, Julia finds that Maggie is very depressed.
She learns that it’s because Joe hasn’t shown up for work for three
days and Maggie can’t find him. Julia asks about Blair. Maggie
shows Julia a painting and tells her Blair wants to buy it for
$2000 (about $12,000 in 1996 money), that that’s far more than her
father’s ever gotten for any of his paintings, that it’s far more
than it’s worth. She tells Julia that she’s been reluctant to sell
it to Blair because she’s afraid it’s really charity, that she thinks
Blair feels sorry for her because of her father’s death and thinks
she needs the money. Julia asks, “Don’t you find that strange? You
two barely know each other. Why would he show you such kindness? Perhaps
he’s got another motive. Perhaps he’s attracted to you”, but Maggie
dismisses this idea, saying Blair knows she’s engaged to Joe and
has never been anything but a perfect gentleman. She tells Julia
that Blair’s dropping by at 5:00 for her final decision about the
Joe shows up at the Evan’s cottage. He looks terrible and faints.
When he revives, Maggie tries to tell him to go see a doctor, but
Joe refuses, saying a doctor would send him back to the hospital and
he doesn’t want to go back to the hospital. Maggie suggest that maybe
he should be in the hospital. Joe gets angry and shouts, “Let’s not
argue about this!” Maggie replies, “All right! I’m tired of arguing!
I’m also tired of being stood up! We had a date last night! Where
were you? Is this any way to treat a fiancee?”. Joe replies, “I’m
sorry. I was busy. I had to see someone”. Maggie asks, “Who?”, but
Joe replies, “I can’t tell you”. He begs, “No matter what I do,
what I say, I love you. You’ve got to believe that!”. Maggie asks,
“The strange way you’ve been behaving, can’t you tell me anything
about it?”. Joe replies, “It has nothing to do with the way I
feel about you. Believe me!” They kiss. Joe tells Maggie he has
a strange request for her: he tells her he wants her to let him
stay at the Evan’s cottage for the night, that he wants her to stay
up with him all night and not let him leave even if he later says
he wants to leave.
Julia returns to the old house and tells Barnabas what happened
at the Evan’s cottage. She suggests that since they know Blair will
be at the Evan’s cottage at 5:00, they can break into his house and
search it at that time.
But when sunset arrives, Joe starts to act hysterical and
tells Maggie they both must leave Collinsport. Maggie replies
that the idea is ridiculous. Outside, dogs start howling, and
Joe tells Maggie he’s got to leave. Maggie asks, “What’s wrong?
Maybe I can help you”, but Joe replies, “No one can help me!” and
starts heading for the front door. As per his instructions,
Maggie tries to prevent Joe from leaving. She stands in front
of the door, barring Joe’s way, but he throws her to the ground
and leaves.
Joe arrives at Blair house. He goes down into the coffin room
and says, “I tried to resist you, but I couldn’t! I couldn’t!”
Barnabas and Julia arrive at Blair’s house. The door is open.
Julia starts to get frightened and tells Barnabas that maybe this
isn’t such a good idea. Barnabas tells Julia it might be dangerous
and suggests she wait outside. He tells her to keep an eye out for
Blair’s car and knock hard on the front door if she sees it coming
to give him a chance to escape out the back door. Barnabas goes
into the house and searches it. As he is searching the house, Joe
Haskell, downstairs, hears noises upstairs and goes up to investigate.
He finds Barnabas there. They each ask the other what he’s doing there.
Barnabas lies that he came to see Blair. Joe tells Barnabas that he
also came to see Blair, that he’s upset at how much time Blair has
been spending with Maggie and has come to have it out with him.
He asks Barnabas to leave, saying he wants to speak to Blair alone,
that he doesn’t want anyone else there because it might get unpleasant.
Joe keeps looking out the window nervously. Barnabas asks, “Why are
you so nervous? Why do you keep looking out the window?”. Joe replies,
“It’s just that I’m not looking forward to this meeting with Blair”.
Suddenly, Joe shouts, “Barnabas! Please go! NOW!”.
Downstairs, Angelique’s coffin starts to open…

Joe continues to try to convince Barnabas to leave. Barnabas
refuses, saying he’ll leave after he speaks to Blair. Joe looks
out the window and sees that the sun has set and tells Barnabas,
“The sun has set! You’ve got to leave!”. Barnabas asks Joe
why the sun setting should be so important to him. Joe lies that
that’s when Blair promised to talk to him. Barnabas shocks Joe
by telling him he knows what’s wrong with him.
Meanwhile, downstairs, Anglique has arisen. She hears Barnabas’
voice upstairs. She becomes ecstatic, seeing this as the perfect
time to attack him. But she hesitates, then decides not to go up,
fearful of Blair’s warning.
Upstairs, Barnabas tells Joe that the place is having a bad
influence on him (Joe) and that he should leave. He tells him he’ll
make a deal with him, “I’ll leave if you’ll leave”. He tells him he’ll
take him to Maggie Evans. The mention of Maggie seems to have an effect
on Joe, and he tells Barnabas that he’ll leave with him.
Downstairs, Angelique hears this and panics, thinking, “What
will Nicholas think when he returns and finds that Joe isn’t here?”
She tries to telepathically command Joe to stay, but to no avail.
Joe leaves with Barnabas.
At the Evan’s cottage, Blair signs a check for the painting and
gives it to Maggie . Maggie and Blair talk, and Maggie tells Blair
about the problems she’s been having with Joe, saying Joe seems to
have become a completely different person. Blair tells Maggie
that sometimes the more you get to know someone, the more you find
how little you really knew them before, that perhaps this is the
real Joe Haskell she’s seeing for the first time. He tells her he
doesn’t want to interfere with her life (ha ha…), but tells her
that he doesn’t want to see her ruin her life and suggests that
perhaps Joe is a lost cause and it would be better if she broke up
with him. At that moment, Joe comes in through the front door.
Blair looks shocked. He gives the check to Maggie and leaves,
saying he’ll come by at 5:00 tomorrow to pick up the painting. (It
is not explained why he doesn’t take it with him now). As he is
leaving, he announces, “I’ll see you both again soon. Very soon”.
Joe asks Maggie why she didn’t keep him there last night as
instructed. Maggie protests, “I couldn’t! You threw me to the
ground!”. Joe apoligizes, saying, “Sorry. That wasn’t me acting
like that”. Maggie asks, “Who was it, then?”. Joe replies, “I
don’t know. It’s like there’s this mysterious force controlling
me”. He begs her to try keeping him at the cottage for the
night again. Maggie replies, “I don’t know if I want to”. Joe
begs her to, saying, “I need your help, I’ve never needed it so
much in my life!”.
Blair returns home, furious. He asks Angelique why she didn’t
call Joe and keep him out of the way as ordered. She tells him
she did call Joe, and he came, but he left. Blair angrily tells
her that her orders were to keep Joe here until he, Blair, returned
from the Evan’s cottage. Angelique replies that she couldn’t keep
Joe from leaving because she had competition. She tells Blair about
Barnabas showing up. Blair orders Angelique to summon Joe again.
Angelique, sensing that Blair might be wanting to get Joe out of
the way permanently, and, for once, showing a bit of conscience for
once, tells Blair that Joe Haskell is an innocent person and that
she doesn’t want to hurt him, but Nicholas warns her that if she
doesn’t call Joe, when the sun comes up the next morning, he will
make her look at it.
At the Evan’s cottage, Joe tells Maggie that this time, she is
to keep him at the Evans cottage by any means necessary, that she’s
to hit him on the head and knock him out if necessary.
Angelique summons Joe telepathically. Joe screams, “NO! NO!”
in response. Maggie, who is in the kitchen making coffee, rushes
out into the living room to see what’s wrong. Joe tells her to
hold him. Maggie does. Angelique continues to call, but Joe,
with Maggie’s help, succeeds in fighting her and does not go.
At Blair’s house, Angelique tells Blair that her calls to Joe
aren’t working, that Joe is successfully fighting them. She tells
Blair that Maggie is helping Joe, “He’s fighting it, and that girl
you’re so fond of is helping him!”, tweaking Blair’s jealousy. She
tells Blair that perhaps Joe and Maggie’s love for each other are
stronger than her power over Joe. Blair tells her to try harder,
telling her that if she fails, “This will be your last night
on Earth!.
At the Evan’s cottage, Joe asks Maggie if she still has any of
those sleeping pills the doctor gave her when Sam died. Maggie replies
that she does. Joe asks for some. Maggie warns him that they’re
very strong, but Joe replies that that’s exactly what he needs.
He tells her he’ll take some, and after he falls asleep she’s to
try to wake him, and if she finds that he’s in such a deep sleep
that she’s unable to, then that means he’s safe and that she can
go to sleep too.
Joe takes some of the pills and falls asleep. Maggie tries
to wake him but finds that she cannot. She goes into her room and
goes to sleep.
Angelique calls to Joe again. Unfortunately, Joe is wrong.
The pills are no match for Angelique. Joe awakens, gets up and
Later, at 4:30 AM, Maggie is awakened by a furious knocking at the
front door. She gets up and answers it. It is Nicholas Blair.
He tells her, “You’ll probably think I’m crazy, but I came because
I had the strange feeling that you were in some kind of trouble, but
now I can see thay you’re OK.” Maggie tells him that she did have
some trouble with Joe earlier, but that he’s now OK and sleeping
peacefully on the couch. Blair pretends to look puzzled, gestures
towards the couch and asks quizzically, “That couch?” Maggie replies,
“Yes, that couch”, but when she turns and looks, she sees that
Joe’s gone and exclaims, “Oh no! He’s gone!”.

Maggie starts crying. Blair tries to comfort her, telling her
Joe probably just went out for a walk. Maggie rejects the idea
and tells Blair Joe has bee acting very strangely for the past
two weeks. Blair tells her that’s probably an after effect of
head trauma. To plant an idea in her mind, he remarks, “There must
be something or someone causing to act strangely”. Maggie suddenly
thinks, “I never thought of that before! Someone else! Maybe he’s
seeing someone else!” Maggie tells Blair that if Joe doesn’t tell
her the truth soon, she might decide to break up with him.
Joe arrives at Blair’s house. Angelique notes that he doesn’t
seem to want to be there. Joe begs to be allowed to leave and go
back to Maggie. Angelique refuses to allow him to do so. Joe notes
that the sun is about to rise. Angelique asks, “You will be waiting
here when I arise tomorrow, won’t you?” Joe replies that he doesn’t
know. Angelique says, “Maybe this will help you not to forget!”
and bites him.
Maggie goes to Joe’s apartment (#24) to talk to him. It is very
dark, so she starts to open the curtains, but Joe screams at her not
to, saying the light hurts his eyes. Maggie asks Joe if he’s acting so
strangely because “Joe, is there someone else? Another girl?” Joe
replies emphatically, “No! I swear there isn’t!” Maggie tells Joe
that she’s received a phone call from his boss, that his boss told
her that he can’t find Joe, that he’s repeatedly called his apartment
and received no answer, that Joe has missed so many days of work the
past two weeks that if he doesn’t get an explanation from Joe soon,
he’ll have to fire him. Joe refuses to call in. Maggie begs him to,
saying, “But Joe! This could mean your job!”. But Joe still refuses,
saying “I can’t. I’m sorry”. Finding Joe’s behavior stranger than
ever, Maggie says, “Not nearly as sorry as I am. Goodbye, Joe”, in
a tone of great sadness and finality and leaves.
Willie shows up at the Evan’s cottage. Maggie asks him what he
wants. Willie tells her he just needs someone to talk to. Maggie
tells Willie she can talk to him, but only for a few minutes because
someone’s coming soon to pick up a painting. Willie tells her he is
very depressed because everything’s going wrong at the old house.
Blair arrives, and Willie, seeing who Maggie’s expected guest is,
leaves, telling Maggie he’ll drop by tomorrow. Blair asks Maggie,
“Wasn’t that Barnabas’ servant?”. Maggie replies that it was.
Blair asks what he wanted. Maggie replies that she doesn’t really
know, that all knows is that Willie said he was depressed because
things were going wrong at the old house, but that she didn’t
really know what he meant by that. Blair thanks her for the painting,
tells her he must return home because he’s expecting guests, and
Nicholas is back at his house. He repeatedly looks at a clock on
the mantel. It now reads 11:12. Angelique asks Blair, “Why are you so
preoccupied with the time?” Blair replies, “I’ve got an appointment with
someone”. Angelique asks, “With who?”. Blair tells her it’s none of her
business. Angelique tells Blair that she senses that he’s not too happy,
that something must be going wrong with his plans. She tells him
she thinks Lang’s taped message, which they still don’t understand,
might be the key. Blair tells her he wants to speak with his
coming guest in private and orders her to go to her room. After
Angelique leaves, Blair, using an old oval shaped mirror hanging on the
wall, casts a spell and sees in the mirror Willie, dressed in pyjamas,
sleeping in his bed at the old house. He awakens him and asks him what
he meant when he told Maggie that everything was going wrong at the old
house, whether he was talking about the experiment. Blair questions
Willie and learns from him that a lifeforce is needed to bring the body
to life, that Barnabas’ was used to animate Adam, but that they are having
trouble finding one to animate the new creation. Blair puts Willie back
to sleep after telling him he won’t remember any of this when he awakens.
Blair happily announces, “So that’s how its done! Drain the lifeforce
from someone else into the creature! Now that changes the picture
entirely!”. Behind Blair at the doorway, Angelique is listening

Blair tells Angelique he now understands Lang’s taped message
and knows why Barnabas is no longer a vampire and why her dream
curse failed. He explains to her how a lifeforce is needed for
the experiment and how Barnabas’ was used to supply Adam’s,
resulting in the vampire curse being drained from Barnabas.
Angelique remarks, “So, they’re having problems with the experiment
because they can’t find anyone to supply the lifeforce”. Blair
replies that Barnabas and Julia won’t have to find anyone, that
he intends to supply someone for them. He tells her that he’s been
having trouble controlling Adam, that he thinks that it’s because
of the particular lifeforce that was used to animate him. He
theorizes that if he picks a more suitable type of lifeforce to
animate Adam’s mate, he will be better able to control her, and through
her, Adam. Angelique asks Blair what sort of woman he has in mind
to supply the lifeforce. Blair replies, “The most evil woman who
ever lived!”. Angelique, knowing from Barnabas’ example that if she
were to supply the lifeforce, it would drain the vampire curse from
her, asks who this most evil woman is – a hopeful look on her face.
Blair toys with her, answering “Lucrezia Borgia”. Angelique protests
that Lucrezia Borgia is dead, but Blair replies, “That’s no problem.
I can bring her back to life”. Blair thinks for a moment, then
concludes that Lucrezia Borgia might not be such a good idea,
then suggests, “Elizabeth Bathory”. Angelique get angry and turns
to leave. Blair asks, “Why are you leaving? Aren’t you interested
in the experiment?” Angelique angrily replies, “No I’m not. It
obviously has nothing to do with me”. Blair tells her he knows
she wants to supply the lifeforce because she knows it will draing
the vampire curse from her, but tells her that because he’s been
unable to control her, “It WON’T be you!”. Angelique promises,
“Nicholas, if you use me for the experiment, you will have nothing
to worry about”, but Nicholas replies, “With you, Angelique, there
is always something to worry about! You are to have nothing to
do with the experiment!”. Angelique leaves in a huff.
Professor Stokes goes to the old house and finds Jeff Clark
alone there. He tells Jeff that he already knows about the
experiment, then visits and inspects the lab. Curious, he asks
Jeff how the lab can run on electricity when Barnabas hasn’t had
electricity installed in the Old house. Jeff replies that
Julia’s had a generator installed for the lab. Adam shows up and
angrily asks Stokes what he’s doing there. Stokes replies that
he came to see Barnabas but found that Barnabas was not home.
The fact that Barnabas is not at home makes Adam even more angry.
He notices Jeff there and asks Jeff what he’s doing there. Jeff
replies that he’s now helping with the experiment, that he had
helped with the first experiment. Adam, surprised, asks, “You
helped with the first experiment?”. Jeff replies, “Yes. I was
Lang’s grave robber”. Adam asks Jeff what he means by this. Stokes –
who hadn’t told Adam he was created out of parts of dead bodies,
having only told him he was artificially created – tries to stop
Jeff from telling Adam, not knowing how Adam will react. But Jeff
will not listen to him and tells Adam he was put together from
parts of dead bodies he had stolen from graveyards, adding, “It was
the only way it could be done”. He then adds, “But what has been
done can be undone!”, grabs a scalpel, and tries to stab Adam.
Adam grabs Jeff’s arm, easily disarms him, and, holding Jeff,
says, “You tried to kill me; now I will kill you!”. Stokes manages
to convince Adam not to kill Jeff, saying Jeff is necessary for the
experiment. Adam released Jeff, and Jeff, saying he has to go to
Collinwood, quickly runs up the stairs. Stokes talks to Adam for
awhile, then goes to Collinwood, where he finds Jeff in the foyer.
Jeff tells Stokes he came to pick Vicky up for a date. Stokes
tells Jeff he must cancel the date, that he must go back to work
in the lab because Adam is angry with the slow pace of the experiment,
that he may be lurking about and if he sees him (Jeff) out with
Vicky instead of working on the experiment, he’ll become angry.
He tells Jeff he knows he’s under a lot of pressure, but assures
him it will only last a few more weeks. Jeff remarks that he’s not
so sure, that he isn’t sure the experiment will succeed without
Lang. Stokes replies that Julia must know what she’s doing, that
she completed the first experiment successfully, but Jeff replies
that all Julia did was pull the right switches after Lang had already
set everything up. Vicky comes downstair and Stokes, unable to
discuss the matter further with Jeff because of her presence,
says goodnight and leaves. Jeff and Vicky go into the drawing room.
Jeff sees Adam spying in through the window, and, remembering Stokes’
warning, tells Vicky that he’s very sorry, but that he’s very tired
and will have to cancel their date.
At Blair’s house, Angelique looks around and, finding Blair
not there, disobeys his orders to stay there and leaves.
Jeff is hard at work in the lab. Suddenly, a woman he has
never seen before appears in the lab. It is Angelique. He asks
her, “Who are you? How did you get in? I locked the doors!”.
Angelique does not answer his questions, saying only that she
is a friend of Adam’s and was sent to assist him in the experiment.
Jeff starts to notice Angelique’s resemblance to Cassandra and remarks,
“Hey, haven’t I seen you somewhere before?”. Angelique replies that
he hasn’t, that they’ve never met before, that she’s only come to help
with the experiment. Suspicious, Jeff tells her no one’s mentioned this
to him before, that he’ll have to talk to Barnabas and Julia about
it first. Angelique replies, “That won’t be necessary!”, bares
her fangs, and bites him…

Angelique stands over an unconscious Jeff Clark. When Jeff awakens,
Angelique orders him to perform the experiment. Jeff protests that
he doesn’t know enough to do so, that only Julia does. Angelique
replies that she knows he assisted Lang and can learn how from his
journals. Jeff tells her the body isn’t ready yet and he doesn’t
know when it will be. Angelique bites him again, then tells him
to call her when the body is ready. She remarks, “When the experiment
is finished, I will really live again!”.
At Collinwood, Roger congratulates Vicky on her engagement and
asks her what Jeff plans to do for a living after they’re married.
Vicky replies that she doesn’t know, but that Jeff is very bright
and she’s confident that he’ll have no trouble finding a job.
(Her words are confident, but her tone of voice betrays a lot
of worry). Roger asks Vicky, “Is he interested in business?”
Vicky replies, “Yes, but he has no experience”. Roger tells her,
“He doesn’t need any. We’ll give him the experience. I’m sending
two junior executives to Boston for a sales training course. I’d
like to send Jeff too, and if his reports are good, I’ll give him a
job with the Collins family business.” Vicky is ecstatic about the
Jeff comes to Collinwood to see Vicky. Vicky tells Jeff that
Roger has something important to discuss with him. Roger takes
Jeff into the drawing room and tells him about the upcoming sales
seminar he wants to send him to. Jeff asks Roger when the seminar
is. Roger replies that it’s the day after tomorrow and will last
six weeks. Jeff replies that he won’t be able to go then, and asks
Roger if he could reschedule it for a week later. Roger replies, “That
would be impossible! The university only gives these seminars once a
year!”. Jeff thanks Roger, but tell him he won’t be able to go. Roger
demands to know why, but Jeff can only say it’s because he’s busy.
Roger asks, “Doing what?!”, but Jeff is evasive and won’t tell him.
Roger leaves, angry that Jeff has rejected his generous offer.
Vicky, puzzled, asks Jeff why he rejected Roger’s offer, but
Jeff refuses to tell her, asking her to trust him.
Carolyn goes into Elizabeth’s room and finds her going through
her dresses. Carolyn is ecstatic, thinking her mother is now
recovering, “I haven’t seen you interested in clothes in a long time!”
But Elizabeth selects one and tells Carolyn she knows she, Elizabeth,
will die soon and tells Carolyn she wants to be buried in the dress
she’s holding. Carolyn, depressed at seeing her mother this way, sits
down on the bed, not knowing what to do.
At night, Elizabeth has a dream in which Angelique tells her
she will be prematurely buried and shows her a scene from her
premature funeral. In it, Elizabeth is lying in an open coffin,
alive. Carolyn and Roger are standing over her. Roger grumbles,
“Why is the coffin open? I asked for a closed coffin funeral!”
Elizabeth tries to tell them she isn’t dead, but finds that she
can’t move or speak. Roger shuts the coffin lid. Elizabeth screams
in her mind. She wakes up screaming. Carolyn comes running into the
room to see what’s wrong. Elizabeth exclaims, “I know how it’s going
to happen! I saw it! I know how its going to happen!”

Elizabeth wakes up screaming from her dream. Carolyn comes
running into the room to see what’s wrong. Elizabeth tells her
about the dream. Carolyn tries to tell her it was just a dream
and doesn’t mean anything, but Elizabeth insists that it proves
that she will be buried prematurely. She calls her lawyer Richard
Garner at his house, but the person answering the phone replies
that Garner is busy and can’t be disturbed. Elizabeth, furious,
tells the person that if Garner doesn’t call her back within
an hour, she’ll fire him. She hangs up and moans to Carolyn that
this isn’t the first time this week that Richard Garner was “too
busy” to speak to her, that Garner was never to busy to speak to her
– his most important client by far – before, and theorizes that Roger
must have told Garner she was mentally ill and instructed him not
to take any calls from her. Carolyn tries to talk her mother out
of her delusions, but to no avail. After Carolyn leaves, Elizabeth
calls Tony Peterson, asking him to come to Collinwood quickly,
saying she has an urgent matter for him to attend to.
Adam is in his room playing chess by himself, playing both
sides. He is white playing against black. He makes a move
with a knight for Black then says, “Carolyn, that would be a
very bad move! You’d lose your knight! You don’t play very well!
You should read that book on chess I gave you!”. He is pretending to
be playing against Carolyn. Carolyn comes in, bringing a meal
(a sandwich and a glass of milk) to Adam, not having done so in
a long time. Adam sarcastically says, “Good Evening! I don’t think
I remember your name! I haven’t seen you in a long time!”. He then
notices that Carolyn’s depressed and asks her why. Carolyn replies
that she depressed because her mother is mentally ill. Adam asks her
to talk to him about it, saying, “Dr. Freud said talking is helpful”.
but is surprised to find that Carolyn has never read Freud’s works.
He tells Carolyn that Professor Stokes had told him that every 20th
century man should read Freud, and that he, being a 20th century man,
has done so. He produces a copy of Freud and gives it to Carolyn to
read. He invites Carolyn to play a game of chess with him. Carolyn
replies, “I don’t play chess”*. Adam, surprised, remarks, “How could
you been on Earth so long and know so little?” Carolyn counters,
“How could you have been on Earth for such a short time and know
so much!”. She asks Adam who he’s been playing chess with, if
it’s Stokes. Adam replies, “No”. Carolyn asks, “Nicholas Blair?”
Again Adam replies, “No”. Carolyn asks, “Don’t tell me Harry Johnson
plays chess!”. Adam again replies, “No”. Carolyn, puzzled, asks,
“There hasn’t been someone else coming here, has there?” Adam replies,
“No”. Carolyn asks, “Then who have you been playing chess with?”.
Adam replies, “You!”, and explains how he’s been pretending to be
playing against her. This seems to upset Carolyn. She gives him
his food and tells him to eat it. Adam asks, “Tell me about your
mother. It would do you good to talk”.
Tony Peterson arrives at Collinwood. Elizabeth tells him she
wants some additions made to her will. She tells him she wants
to have air vents in her coffin, which is not to be buried but
put in a crypt, that there is to be a button in the coffin which,
when pressed, will cause the coffin to open and cause the bell in
the tower to ring loudly enough to be heard all over Collins property.
Peterson remarks to Elizabeth that her requests sound strange.
Elizabeth replies, “Not if you know you’re going to be buried alive,
and I know I am!” .
As he is leaving, Tony Peterson runs into Carolyn in the garden.
He tells Carolyn he’s not sure her mother is mentally competent
right now. Carolyn replies that she knows, but instructs Peterson
to humor her mother. Unknown to them, Adam is spying on them from
the window in his room. Peterson tries to explain to Carolyn what
happened with Cassandra, that he hated her but felt drawn to her
by a strange compulsion he didn’t understand. He tells Carolyn,
“I wish things were between me and you could be like they were before
Cassandra came”. Carolyn asks, “You think we can?”. Peterson kisses
her. Carolyn doesn’t object, and it turns out to be a long, lingering
kiss. After they finish, Carolyn tells Peterson she’ll have to think
about it and leaves.
In a jealous rage, Adam rushes down into the garden and attacks
Peterson, screaming, “You stay away from her! You get away from her!”.
He hits Peterson on the head hard. Peterson falls. Adam leaves.
Peterson is lying on the ground, not moving, unconscious or maybe worse…

*She is lying. Roger mentioned in an earlier episode that she played
chess, albeit badly. (He invited her to play a game with him to
cheer her up, remarking, “I’ll even let you win for once”).

Note: In this episode, the part of Carolyn Stoddard is played
by Diane Walker.

Carolyn, having heard noises, comes rushing into the garden,
where she finds Peterson lying there. She screams for help.
Roger comes. Peterson regains conciousness. Roger and Carolyn
take him inside.
Adam, upstairs watching all this from the window, says,
“Carolyn will hate me for this. I don’t care! I don’t care!”.
Roger and Carolyn take Peterson into the drawing room. Peterson
tells them that he was attacked from behind and didn’t see who attacked
him, that all he knows is that the attacker was tremendously strong
and had shouted, “You stay away from her!” before knocking him out.
A funny look appears on Carolyn’s face, indicating that she knows
it must have been Adam, but she doesn’t say anything. Peterson tells
Carolyn, “I assume he must have been talking about you”. Carolyn
replies, “That’s ridiculous”. Peterson asks, “You sure you don’t know
who it could’ve been?” Carolyn replies, “No”. Roger asks Peterson what
he’s doing at Collinwood. Peterson replies that he’s been hired
by Elizabeth to make some changes in her will. Roger asks, “Since
when are you her attorney?” Peterson replies, “Since tonight. She
hired me”. Roger asks what the changes to Elizabeth’s will are, but
Peterson refuses to tell him, saying they’re confidential. He tells
Roger that if he wants to know, he’ll have to ask Elizabeth. Roger
replies, “I will!” leaves to do so. Peterson tells Carolyn
that the attacker’s words seemed to indicate that he know her,
but Carolyn denies knowing who it might have been.
Peterson leaves. From his window, Adam sees Peterson’s car
leaving and growls, “She loves him! I wish I had killed him!”
Carolyn goes and confronts Adam. Adam admits attacking Peterson.
Carolyn threatens to turn him in to the police. Adam replies, “Go
ahead! I don’t care”. Carolyn remarks, “I try to help you, but
you make it so difficult!”. Adam angrily replies, “So DON’T try
to help me!”. Carolyn asks Adam if he attacked Peterson
because he was jealous. Adam angrily denies this, but further
conversation makes it clear to Carolyn Adam is indeed jealous.
Adam opens a drawer in a clothes drawers, takes out a scarf,
and gives it to Carolyn, saying, “Here”. Carolyn exclaims,
“My scarf! Where did you get it?” Adam replies, “You left it here
and I kept it”. Carolyn asks why. Adam replies, “I look at it
sometimes. It reminds me of you. I don’t want it anymore! I
don’t want to think of you anymore!”. Carolyn again tries to tell
Adam that he and she can be nothing more than good friends, but Adam
becomes angry and orders her to leave.
Later, down in the drawing room, Roger tells Carolyn that he’s
talked to Elizabeth and learned what the changes to her will are, that
they are bizarre. He tells Carolyn that Elizabeth has threatened
to cut them off without a penny unless they have a special mausoleum
built for her according to her bizarre specifications. He tells Carolyn
he thinks Elizabeth should be sent back to Windcliff. He notices
that Carolyn doesn’t seem to be paying much attention to what he’s
saying and accuses her of being more concerned with Tony Peterson
than her own mother. They argue. Carolyn leaves.
Carolyn goes to Harry Johnson and tells him to go stay with Adam
and keep an eye on him, staying with him 24 hours a day. Harry
objects, “My mother will wonder where I am”. Carolyn tells him,
“I’ll tell her I sent you to Bangor to do something for me for
a few days”. Harry demands to be paid extra for staying with Adam.
Carolyn asks, “How much?” Harry replies, “A hundred dollars a
day” (An exorbitant sum in those days, worth about $600 dollars
today). Carolyn finds this exorbitant, but agrees to pay him for
the first day, then negotiate for further days later.
Harry goes to stay with Adam.
Adam is in his room writing something on a pad of paper with a
“Flair” pen. There a knock on the door. Adam quickly puts the pad
in a drawer, then answers the door. It’s Harry. Adam asks, “What are
you doing here?” Harry explains that Carolyn had sent him here. Adam
looks hopeful, saying, “Carolyn sent you here?”, but then Harry tells
Adam that she’s intructed him to stay and “keep him company”. Adam tells
Harry he wants to see Carolyn and asks him to go get her. Harry
refuses, telling Adam that Carolyn had instructed him to stay here.
Adam tells Harry that if he doesn’t go get Carolyn, he will kill him.
Frightened, Harry tells Adam he will go get Carolyn. He leaves,
locking the door behind him. Adam takes the pad back out of the
drawer and resumes writing on it.
In the drawing room, Carolyn apoligizes to Roger for not paying
attention earlier. They discuss Elizabeth again. Carolyn tells
Roger she thinks it would be best to let Julia decide if Elizabeth
should be sent back to Windcliff. Harry comes into the foyer and
asks to speak to Carolyn.
Carolyn goes out to the foyer to talk to Harry, closing the
drawing room doors behind her. She angrily asks Harry why he’s
disobeyed her orders and left Adam. Harry tells her what happened.
Carolyn tells him she’d better talk to Adam, and they both go
Roger comes out into the foyer to see what’s taking Carolyn
so long and is surprised to find that she’s not there.
Carolyn and Harry go up to Adam’s room. They find that Adam
has broken the door down and escaped. They go inside and find a
note on the table. It says, “You do not want me. Goodbye”.
Harry asks, “Where do you suppose he went?” Carolyn replies,
“I don’t know. I don’t know what’s going to happen to him

Jeff Clark, now under Angelique’s power, is alone in the basement
lab in the old house. He thinks to himself that he’s alone in the house
and can seize the opportunity to learn what he needs to know to do the
experiment. He searches through some drawers and takes out a small, red,
diary sized notebook. He looks through it and finds in it the key piece
of information necessary to perform the experiment, something about
“the voltage in the cathodes”. He takes out a pen and starts to copy
the information into another notebook, but Julia comes down and catches
him doing this, and angrily asks him what he’s doing with her personal
notebook. Jeff replies that he just wanted to know more about the
experiment and didn’t think she’d mind. Julie replies, “I DO
mind”, and asks him why he wants to know more about the experiment.
He tells Julia that he’s doing it for Vicky’s safety, that she,
Julia, is the only person who knows what to do and he wants to
be able to carry on with it in case something happens to her,
for example, if she gets sick again. Julia replies that she
won’t get sick again, that he already knows everything he needs
to know, that she only needs him to set up the equipment and
nothing more. She takes the notebook from him and locks it in
a cabinet. Jeff asks Julia if they’ve selected anyone to supply
the life force yet. Julia replies that they haven’t. Jeff asks
if any harm will come to the girl they use. Julia replies, “No.
Otherwise, we wouldn’t have agreed to do the experiment”. Hearing
a noise upstairs, Julia says, “That must be Barnabas”. She tells
Jeff to finish fixing the wiring and goes up the stairs. Jeff,
hooking up the wires Julia ordered him to, thinks to himself,
“She suspects me now. I’ve got to be careful. Very careful!”.
Upstairs in the living room of the Old House, Barnabas tells Julia
that he has just been to Collinsport and is puzzled by the fact that
nothing has happened, that even though they know there must be a vampire
around, there have been no vampire attacks. They discuss this oddity
for awhile. Then Julia tells Barnabas she caught Jeff Clark reading her
private journal. She tells Barnabas, “Jeff’s been acting strangely
lately. I no longer trust him”. There’s a knock at the door.
It’s Vicky. She tells Barnabas that Professor Stokes called Collinwood
to say he’ll be coming to see him, that it was urgent and that
she was to go to the Old House and make sure he didn’t leave if he
were home. She tells Barnabas she also had another reason for
coming, then asks to speak to Julia in private. Barnabas replies,
“Of course” and goes down to the cellar, leaving them to talk. On the
way down the stairs, Barnabas runs into Jeff coming up. Barnabas
tells Jeff that Vicky’s upstairs and that he had better not let
her see him there. Jeff tells Barnabas that he wants to hear what
Vicky’s saying and will listen from behind the door.
Vicky asks Julia if she, as a doctor, thinks Jeff is mentally
OK. Julia replies that he is. Vicky tells Julia about Jeff’s
strange behavior lately, about his rejection of Roger’s offer,
which would mean they could get married earlier, his claims
that he’s too busy to go, etc. She tells Julia it’s almost as
if he’s trying to delay their marriage. They talk for awhile,
but Julia can’t give Vicky any good answers. Behind the door
to the cellar, Jeff thinks to himself, “Vicky! If only I could
go to you, put my arms around you and tell you everything’ll be
all right! But I can’t! I can’t!”
Stokes comes to the old house and tells Barnabas that Adam has
escaped. As they are talking, Jeff rushes by them, heading
towards the front door, saying that he’s going to see Vicky.
Stokes stops him and tells him to stay, saying, “What I have to
say is of importance to you too”. Stokes admits that Carolyn had
been hiding Adam. He tells them that while she was doing this,
a most unfortunate thing happened, that Adam fell in love with
Carolyn and now that she has rejected him, he has escaped.
He tells them that he’s worried about Vicky, that Adam, in his
present state of mind, might decide to lash out and harm someone,
that since Vicky was the first person Adam had threatened, that
he, Stokes, fears that she might be the first person Adam tries
to harm. He tells Barnabas and Jeff that the best way to pacify
Adam is to complete the experiment and give him a mate as soon
as possible, and hence they must redouble their efforts to
finish the experiment, working 24 hour days in shifts, if possible.
Jeff goes to Collinwood and tells Vicky that he must once again
cancel a date. Vicky asks him if he still loves her. Jeff replies
that he does. Vicky asks him about his strange behavior, about his
puzzling rejection of Roger’s offer, but Jeff refuses to give her any
explanation. Vicky asks, “Why have you been staying away from
me?” Jeff replies, “I’ve been busy”. Vicky exclaims, “Doing WHAT?”
Jeff stands there silent, not replying. Vicky asks, “You can’t tell
me, can you?”. Jeff replies, “I’d explain it to you if I could, but
I can’t! You’ve got to trust me”. Vicky says, “It’s no use”. Jeff
asks, “What?”. Vicky replies, “Our engagement. I can’t marry you.
I can’t marry a man who keeps secrets from me”. She gives him back
her engagement ring, breaking the engagement, and runs upstairs.
Jeff agonizes over this, thinking to himself, “If only I could tell
you the truth! If only I could tell you I’m doing this for you.
But I can’t! Maybe I’ve lost you forever!”.
In the lab, Julia tells Barnabas that the body will be ready
tomorrow, that soon, it will be a living, breathing creature.

Blair is sitting in the living room of his house. Angelique
comes upstairs. Blair remarks, “I thought you’d still be
downstairs with Joe Haskell”. Angelique replies, “I’ve sent him
home already”. Blair asks, “Already? Are you bored with him?”.
Angelique replies, “He still keeps talking about Maggie”. Blair
assures her, “He and Maggie are finished!”. Angelique says, “I’m
sure that pleases you”. Blair tells her, “I’ve become very fond
of Maggie”. Angelique says, “Just make sure you don’t make the
same mistake as I did and become TOO fond of her!”. There’s a knock
at the door. It’s Adam. Totally depressed, he tells Blair that
he’s going to go to Barnabas and tell him to stop the experiment,
that he doesn’t want a mate anymore because he’ll never love the
mate as much as he loves Carolyn. Blair remarks, “Something must
have happened.” and asks, “What is it?”. Adam tells him about seeing
Carolyn kissing Tony Peterson, saying, “She loves him!”. Blair tells
him he must allow the experiment to continue because it’ll allow him
to have BOTH the mate and Carolyn. Adam doesn’t understand and asks
Blair to explain. Blair refuses to do so, telling Adam he’s angry
with him for acting so childishly. He tells Adam, “You’ve just got to
trust me” and orders him to go back to Collinwood. Adam leaves.
Angelique asks Blair what he meant when he told Adam she would
have both Carolyn and the mate. Blair replies that that’s just
he made up, that he had to tell Adam something. Angelique asks
Blair what he’ll do when Adam finds out he won’t be getting both
the mate and Carolyn. Blair replies, “I’ll cross that bridge
when I come to it” and leaves.
Angelique uses the magic mirror to spy on Julia and Jeff working
in the lab. She learns that the body will be ready by midnight,
but that they will not be able to proceed yet because Barnabas has not
found a woman to supply the lifeforce. Julia tells Jeff they have only
a week from the time the body is completed to complete the experiment
or the body will begin to decompose.
Blair comes back into the room and catches Angelique using the
magic mirror, just as she turns the picture off. Blair asks Angelique
why she’s spying on the lab in the old house. Angelique replies
that she’s just curious. Nicholas tells Angelique that he doesn’t
believe her, and warns her that if she doesn’t tell him the truth,
they’ll sit together and watch the sun come up. Angelique tells
Blair that truth, that she wants to participate in the experiment,
that she wants to supply the lifeforce. Blair tells her that he’s
already told her “No”. Angelique tells him how desperately she
wants to be a real woman again, but Blair replies, “I don’t care
what you want”. He asks her what she saw in the mirror. Angelique
lies that she heard Julia tell Jeff that the body wouldn’t be
ready for at least a week. Blair, apparently believing her, tells
her again not to meddle and warns her, “What you are now is better
than what you could be – nothing at all!”.
Jeff is in the lab alone. Angelique shows up and orders him
to proceed with the experiment immediately, with her supplying
the lifeforce. Jeff refuses, saying, “It’s too dangerous”.
Angelique bites him.

Even after having been bitten by Angelique, Jeff still refuses
to do the experiment, saying he’s sure it’ll fail if he does because
he still doesn’t know enough to do it yet. Angelique tells him,
“I’ll give you 24 hours to learn what you need to know. I’ll
come back tomorrow night and we will do the experiment! I can
wait no longer!”.
Adam returns to Collinwood and goes to Carolyn’s room and awakens
her. He tells her that he’s been walking through the woods, doing
a lot of thinking, and now realizes that they can only be friends
and has decided to return. Carolyn – not knowing Adam’s origin –
calls Adam “a most amazing creature”, striking a nerve. Adam
thinks to himself, “A creature! I am nothing more than Lang’s creation!
Not a man!”, but doesn’t let Carolyn see how upset he is. Carolyn gives
him a gift, saying she bought it for him several days ago but didn’t have
a chance to give it to him because he ran away. Adam opens it. It
is a green pullover sweater. Adam is so happy he cries. He tells
Carolyn no one’s ever given him anything before. Carolyn, looking
puzzled, remarks, “But someone MUST have given you something when
you were a child!”, again unwittingly hitting a raw nerve, not
knowing that Adam never had a childhood. Adam asks if people always
love children. Carolyn replies, “Yes”, then tells Adam he’d better
go back to his room before someone finds him here. Adam leaves,
saying, “Carolyn, there’ll never be anyone like you!”.
The next day, Jeff Clark goes to Collinwood and asks for Vicky.
Carolyn tells him that Vicky’s out with David, that they won’t be
back until dinner. She tells Jeff to wait, saying it’s almost time
for dinner, but Jeff makes the puzzling remark that it’s almost
dark, that at night, his life is not his own…
Adam, wearing his new green sweater, goes to the lab at the Old
House and looks around. Angelique appears out of the shadows and
tells Adam he shouldn’t be there, that Blair had ordered him to
stay in his room at Collinwood. Adam counters, “What are YOU doing
here? You have nothing to do with the experiment!”. Angelique
manages to convince Adam that Blair, not trusting Barnabas, sent
her here to keep an eye on him. Adam, believing this, leaves.
Jeff has returned to the lab. Angelique is strapped down on
a table. Jeff starts the experiment…

Barnabas returns home and hears the sound of machinery coming
from downstairs in the lab. He goes down to investigate. He finds
Jeff there with all the equipment on and angrily asks him what he’s
doing. Jeff is shocked to see Barnabas. But he is even more shocked
when he glances at the table where Angelique had been strapped down.
She is gone, even though the straps are still buckled. Jeff lies
to Barnabas that he’s just testing the equipment, but Barnabas notices
the electrodes have been attached to the body and accuses Jeff of
lying. He accuses Jeff of trying to destroy the body, accusing him of
hating Vicky now because she’s broken their engagement and wanting to
see Adam harm Vicky. Jeff vehemently denies this, but Barnabas
“fires” him, tellilng him to leave and never return, telling him
that he and Julia will finish the experiment without him. Jeff
Walking through the woods, Jeff runs into Angelique. She tells
him that she had to leave because she couldn’t let Barnabas find
her there. She tells Jeff that they’ll try again tomorrow night,
but Jeff replies that that’ll be impossible, explaining that
Barnabas has “fired” him. Angelique tells him that they’ll sneak in
in the middle of the night when everyone’s asleep and do it.
Julia returns to the old house. Barnabas tells her about Jeff.
Julia is shocked, and remarks that Jeff loved Vicky so much she
can’t believe he would want any harm to come to her. Barnbabas tells
Julia they’ve got to finish the experiment before the body decomposes.
He tells Julia he has come to a decision as to who the donor will be –
Maggie Evans – that Maggie is already under Julia’s hypnotic control,
that she, Julia, can get Maggie to come here and make her forget
afterwards. Julia is aghast and tells Barnabas that she’d prefer
not to use Maggie because Maggie’s already been through so much.
She tells Barnabas that she’d prefer to use someone else, but Barnabas
replies that he’s already decided on Maggie. They argue about this.
Unknown to them, Willie is standing on the stairs listening to them.
Later at night, Julia tells Barnabas she is tired, says goodnight
and goes upstairs. When she gets upstairs, Willie tells her he knows
they plan to use Maggie Evans and begs her not to. Julia tells Willie
that Maggie will be in no danger, but Willie counters, “There’s
always a risk!”. He tells Julia that he doesn’t want to take the
slightest risk that any harm will come to Maggie. Julia tells Willie
she’ll continue to try to convince Barnabas to use someone else,
but Willie remarks that he’s doubtful she’ll be successful, that it’s
difficult to get Barnabas to change his mind once he’s decided on
something. He moans, “You don’t know what it’s like knowing someone
you care for is going to go through this!” Julia replies, “Yes I
do. You forget. I watched Barnabas”.
Barnabas comes upstairs. Willie says goodnight to him. Barnabas
goes up to bed. Willie goes down to the lab, says to the body,
“Maggie’s not going to risk her life for YOU!”, picks up a scalpel,
and raises it into the air, preparing to destroy the body…

Barnabas appears and orders Wille to drop the scalpel. Willie
does. Barnabas asks Willie why he’s trying to destroy the body.
Willie replies that he knows they’re planning to use Maggie to
supply the life force, that he doesn’t want them to. He asks
Barnabas, “Why can’t Julia supply the life force?” Barnabas replies,
“Julia has to operate the equipment”. Willie then suggests Vicky.
Barnabas angrily vetoes the idea. Willie asks Barnabas to wait,
saying he’ll find a girl for them to use, but Barnabas replies that
there’s not enough time for that, that they’ll have to use Maggie.
He tells Willie, “I’m only doing what I have to do”. Willie mutters,
“Yeah, I guess we each do what we have to do…”.
It is morning. Maggie and Vicky are having coffee at a table
outside Collinwood. They both talk about their romantic problems.
Vicky tells Maggie how much Jeff has changed recently. Maggie
tells Vicky how much Joe has changed. She tells Vicky that when she
ran into Joe in town recently, Joe just smiled at her briefly, said
“Hello”, and walked right past her as if they were nothing more than
slight acquaintances. Barnabas drops by, and Vicky invites him to sit
down for a cup of coffee. He accepts, and Vicky leaves to get a cup
for him. While Vicky is away, Barnabas talks with Maggie, asking her
how she is. Maggie replies that she’s feeling much better and is
thinking of going back to work. Barnabas asks, “At the diner?”
Maggie replies, “No, I’m thinking of moving to Boston and finding a
job there, but I haven’t decided for sure yet”. Barnabas asks Maggie
how many people she’s told this to. Maggie replies, “Only you and
Vicky, so far”. Vicky returns with a coffee cup for Barnabas. Maggie
gets up and tells Vicky she has some shopping to do and has to go.
Vicky asks Maggie to call her when she’s come to a decision about
moving to Boston. Maggie leaves. Barnabas offers Vicky sympathy
about her breakup with Jeff. He asks her if she’d like to go to a
concert in Bangor with him next week. Vicky accepts. From behind
the fence, Adam is spying on them. Barnabas sees him.
Maggie is at home, writing a letter. Willie comes and hysterically
begs Maggie to leave town for a while. He offers to give her $50 to
pay for expenses, saying he knows she’s low on money. Maggie, puzzled,
asks Willie why he wants her to leave town. Willie replies that
there are people who have plans for her, plans which will not be
good for her. Maggie tells Willie he thinks he’s being absurd
and asks him to be more specific, asking, “Who are ‘they’ and what
are ‘they’ planning?”. Thinking it will convince her to go, Willie
tells her that Barnabas is involved, but Maggie tells Willie she
doesn’t believe that Barnabas would ever do anything to harm her.
Seeing that he cannot convince Maggie to leave without telling
her about the experiment, Willie leaves.
At night, Barnabas goes to Collinwood but runs into Adam in the
garden. Adam is furious, telling Barnabas that this is the second
time today he’s seen him at Collinwood, that while he’s visiting
Vicky, he, Adam is still without a mate. He orders Barnabas,
“Go back to the old house and work on the experiment or I’ll go
up to Vicky’s room and kill her right now!”.
At the old house, Willie is pacing around in the lab, wondering
what to do. He decides that if Maggie will not leave town willingly,
he’ll have to kidnap her for her own good. He figures that Maggie
will hate him for it, but that he’ll somehow be able to explain it
to her after they’ve found another life force for the experiment.
He notices a bottle of chlorform on a shelf and takes it. In his
haste, he knocks a stool over. Barnabas, who has returned to the
old house and is upstairs, hears the noise and comes down into the
lab to investigate. Seeing no one there, he decides that it must’ve
been his imagination and leaves. Willie is hiding behind a large
piece of equipment, unseen.
Maggie’s alarm clock reads 11:35 PM. Maggie is sleeping peacefully.
Willie enters her room through the french doors. Maggie awakens, sees
him and screams, but Willie puts a chlorform soaked handerchief over
her mouth and puts her to sleep, saying, “I don’t want to do this, Maggie,
but I have to. If I don’t, something terrible’s going to happen to you”.
There’s a knock at the front door.
Outside, Barnabas is knocking on the front door. Receiving no
answer, he comes in and goes to Maggie’s room, but finds no one
there. He thinks of Adam’s threat to Vicky…

Barnabas returns to the old house and tells Julia that Maggie
wasn’t at the cottage, that she’d obviously been kidnapped as
her bed had been slept in, that it’s obvious who must have
kidnapped her: Willie. He tells Julia they must find Maggie
Meanwhile, Willie has taken Maggie to the secret room at
the mausoleum.
At the old house, Julia discusses the possiblity of getting
Jeff back to do the experiment while SHE donates the lifeforce,
but Barnabas vetoes the idea, saying he doesn’t trust Jeff.
At the mausoleum, Maggie awakens and screams. Willie tries
to explain to her why he kidnapped her and brought her here,
but, unable to tell her about the experiment, cannot come up
with a coherent explanation. Maggie tells him he’s just babbling.
She asks Willie to let him go, but Willie refuses to do so. Suddenly,
Maggie tells Willie that she remembers having been in this room
before. Willie tells her that that’s ridiculous, that it must be
her imagination, but Maggie starts to recover more memories. She
remembers when it was she was in the secret room before, that it was
during the two months of her life that she can’t remember. She gets a
clear flashback of Julia taking her to the graveyard, of looking at
Josette’s grave and being taken to the mausoleum, where she became
frightened and begged Julia to take away, saying, “I’ve got to get
away from this place! If he finds me here he’ll kill me!”. But she
tells Willie she cannot remember who the “he” she was so frightened of
was. Willie mutters to himself, “Taking you here is the worst mistake
I’ve ever made!”. Maggie hears this and asks Willie what he means.
Willie answers, “Nothing”, but Maggie accuses him of knowing more than
he’ll admit about what happened to her before. Willie denies this.
Julia and Barnabas return to the old house, having been searching
unsucessfully for Maggie. It is almost sundown, Adam’s deadline
for the experiment. Unable to perform the experiment without
Maggie, they are ponder what to tell Adam when he comes. Julia tells
Barnabas that the only thing they can do is tell Adam the truth
about Willie kidnapping Maggie and hope he will understand and
extend his deadline. But Barnabas tells Julia that he’s thought
of a better solution. He goes to a closet, takes out a rifle, and
tells Julia that he’ll kill Adam as soon as he comes through the door…

Julia tries to argue Barnabas out of killing Adam, but Barnabas
maintains that it is the only way to insure the safety of Vicky
and the Collins family. Julia finally succeeds in dissuading
Barnabas from killing Adam by reminding him of Lang’s taped
message that there is some sort of connection between him and
Adam, saying that he risks reverting to being a vampire or even dying
if he kills Adam. She reminds him that when he almost died from
the bat bite, Adam got sick and almost died too. Convinced that
Julia is right, Barnabas comes up with another solution. He tells
Julia to go to Collinwood and tell Vicky some story – any story –
to get her to leave Collinsport for a few days. Julia is about
to leave the old house to do this, but when she opens the front
door of the old house, she finds Adam standing there. Adam
comes in and demands to know where Julia is going. Barnabas lies
to Adam that Julia is just going to go get Maggie Evans to supply
the life force. Adam, suspicious, asks why they’ve waited till
now with the deadline so near. He asks if there’s a problem.
Barnabas replies that there isn’t, but Adam doesn’t believe him,
grabs him and shakes him, and demands to know what’s gone wrong.
Julia tells Adam the truth, that Willie has kidnapped Maggie,
that they can’t find her and won’t be able to do the experiment
for awhile. Adam lets Barnabas go, then announces that since
they haven’t met his deadline, he will go to Collinwood and kill
Vicky as he had threatened. Barnabas picks up the rifle and points
it at Adam, then tells Julia to go and do as he had instructed.
Julia leaves. Adam guesses correctly that Julia is going to Vicky,
that that was where she was going in the first place when she opened
the door. Barnabas, replies, “Right on both counts.” He tells Adam,
“We’ll both be here for some time”, and, continuing to hold the
rifle on him, orders Adam to sit down, but Adam, instead of sitting
down, attacks Barnabas and pulls the rifle from his hands before he
can shoot, then knocks him out. He leaves the old house. He
intercepts Julia in the woods and starts to strangle her.
At Collinwood, Roger visits Vicky in her room. It turns out
that Vicky has already made plans to leave Collinwood for a few
days to think things over. Roger tells Vicky that he knows she’s
depressed about he breakup with Jeff, but wishes she wouldn’t leave
right now, that it’s a bad time for her to do so right now. Vicky
replies, “I’ll only be gone for a few days. I’m sure it won’t
affect David much”, but Roger tells her it isn’t David he’s worried
about, but Elizabeth, that in her present state, Elizabeth needs
companionship. Vicky agrees with Roger and tells him she’s
decided not to go. After Roger leaves, Vicky prepares for bed,
not noticing Adam peering in through the window.
Barnabas regains consciousness and hastens to go to Collinwood.
He finds Julia on the trail, unconscious. He revives her. Julia
tells him Adam intercepted he while she was on the way to Collinwood
and strangled her into unconciousness. She tells Barnabas go to
to Collinwood quickly.
At Colliwood, Vicky has gone to sleep. Adam opens the window,
comes into the room, walks over to the door and locks it. He thinks
to himself, “I don’t really want to harm her, but I must! It is
the only way I can get vengeance against Barnabas! She is the only
person he loves! He has condemned me to be alone. I will show him
what it is like to be alone!” Meanwhile, Barnabas arrives at Collinwood
and runs upstairs to Vicky’s room. He tries the door, but finding
it locked, knocks and calls to her. Vicky awakens and, not seeing
Adam, goes to the door and is about to open it, but Adam grabs her
from behind and starts to strangle her.

Barnabas continues to knock, but Vicky doesn’t answer because
she’s being strangled. Vicky eventually loses consciousness,
and Adam, looking a little guilty and appearing to have second
thoughts, lets her go for awhile. Hearing the noise, Carolyn comes
out of her room and asks Barnabas what’s going on. Barnabas replies
that’s somethning’s wrong, that Vicky doesn’t answer his knocking
and calls. Hearing Barnabas and Carolyn talking outside, Adam
leaves through the window. Carolyn goes to her room and returns
with a spare key to Vicky’s room. She opens the door and she and
Barnabas go in. They find Vicky unconscious. Carolyn asks, “Who did
this???”. Barnabas replies, “Adam”. Carolyn asks, “How do you know?”,
but Barnabas just answers, “Hurry! Get Julia!” Carolyn goes and
returns with Julia, then goes downstairs into the foyer where she
starts to telephone the police. Blair happens by and asks her what
she’s doing. Carolyn recounts what happened to him. When Blair
learns that no one actually saw who attacked Vicky, that they think
it was Adam only because Barnabas said so, Blair lies that it couldn’t
have been Adam because he’s been playing chess with Adam all evening.
Carolyn asks who else it could have been. Blair replies that maybe it
was Jeff Clark, that maybe he attacked Vicky because he was upset
about Vicky breaking their engagement.
Blair goes to Adam’s room and asks him why he attacked Vicky.
Adam replies that he did it because Barnabas is stalling, that
the body is all ready and all that is needed to finish the
experiment is a woman go supply the lifeforce. He tells Blair
that he thinks Barnabas is stalling because Barnabas told him
a story he finds hard to believe, that Barnabas told him that
the girl they had selected to supply the life force is unavailable
because she’s been kidnapped by Willie. Blair asks, “Who is this
girl?” Adam replies, “You don’t know her. Her name is Maggie Evans”.
Blair is aghast to learn that Barnabas and Julia plan to use Maggie.
He tells Adam that Barnabas and Julia must not use Maggie, that he’s
got to stop them from using her. Adam accuses Blair of being in love
with Maggie. Blair replies, “Love is not a word I use”. Carolyn
comes up. Blair tells her that Adam’s upset because he told Adam what
happened, that she suspects him, Adam. Carolyn apoliges to Adam about
thinking it was he who attacked Vicky.
Carolyn confronts Barnabas after Julia leaves and asks him why
he was so sure it was Adam who attacked Vicky. Barnabas lies
that Julia saw Adam headed towards Collinwood as she was returning
there and rushed back to the old house and told him, hoping he
could intercept Adam before he got to Collinwood. Carolyn asks
Barnabas why he would think that Adam would try to harm Vicky.
Barnabas replies that he suspects that it was Adam who kidnapped
Vicky before.
In the West Wing, Blair gives Adam some sort of plan…
Barnabas returns to the old house and finds Adam there. Adam
tells Barnabas that he now believes his story that Maggie Evans
had been kidnapped, then orders Barnabas to do the experiment
tomorrow night. Barnabas replies that he doesn’t think they can
find Maggie by then. Adam tells Barnabas that it won’t be
necessary for them to find Maggie, that he’ll supply a “donor”.
Barnabas tells Adam that it would be too dangerous to use a
stranger who might talk afterwards, that they must use Maggie
because she is under Julia’s hypnotic spell and can be made
to forget everything afterwards. Adam replies that the person
he has in mind isn’t a stranger, that it’s someone they can count
on not to talk. Barnabas asks, “Who?” Adam replies, “I woman I
want my mate to be like. Carolyn”.

Barnabas is shocked. He tells Adam thay cannot use Carolyn
because the experiment might be dangerous. Barnabas explains
that the only reason he, Barnabas, is alive is because Julia
did not perform the experiment correctly the first time, that
had she performed it exactly as Dr. Lang had planned, his original
donor body would have died, and he would have been transfered into
the new body. Adam is stunned and asks, “I would have been you?”
Barnabas replies, “Yes”. Adam asks Barnabas how he could have
hated his own body so much that he wanted to change to another
one, but Barnabas refuses to answer. Adam asks Barnabas if Julia
knows what she did differently that caused both bodies to live.
Barnabas replies, “Yes, but it’s tricky and error prone”. In
spite of Barnabas’ warning, Adam insists on using Carolyn to
donate the life force and leaves.
In the secret room at the mausoleum, Maggie is asleep. Willie
thinks to himself tha the must go into town to get food and supplies.
He opens the secret door and, without closing it, walks out into
the mausoleum and looks out the gate to see if anyone’s around.
While Willie is outside in the mausoleum, Maggie awakens and sees
that the secret door is open. She quietly exits the secret room.
Willie walks back to the secret door and is shocked to see that
the secret room is empty. He screams, “Maggie!” Maggie, who has
been hiding behind one of the sarcophagi, runs toward the gate,
but Willie manages to get to her before she can get out of the
mausoleum. He drags her back to the secret room. Maggie screams,
“You’re crazy! I hate you!” Willie begs her not to hate him,
telling her that he’s doing this for her sake, that he can’t
tell her why right now, but perhaps one day he may be able to.
But then he realizes that he’ll never be able to tell her,
gets depressed and chloroforms her.
Adam goes to the gazebo and meets Blair there. He tells Blair
that he’s done as he had instructed him to do, that he’s gone and
told Barnabas that they would use Carolyn. He tells Blair that
he’s worried that the experiment might be dangerous and might
result in harm to Carolyn. Blair tells Adam, “But I’ve already
told you that Barnabas would lie to you that it would be dangerous”.
He assures Adam that the experiment won’t be dangerous, and adds
that they MUST use Carolyn to supply the lifeforce if the creation
it to be like Carolyn, someone he can love. Meanwhile, Willie
is walking through the woods. Blair hears Willie walking and orders
Adam to hide. Adam does so. Willie comes out of the woods.
Blair hypnotizes him, tells him Maggie is no longer in danger and
orders him to release her. He tells Willie he will have no
other memory of their meeting and releases him.
Alone in the secret room, Maggie has a dream. It’s a flashback to
her captivity in the old house. She is in the living room with
Willie. There is a table, with dinner set for two. Maggie notices
that the place card on her settting reads, “Josette” and asks Willie,
“Josette? Why does it say Josette? Josette’s been dead for centuries!”.
Willie replies, “HE told me to put it there”. Maggie asks, “Who?
Barnabas?” Willie replies, “Yes, Barnabas”. Barnabas walks into
the room.
Maggie suddenly awakens and gasps, “That wasn’t a dream! That
night HAPPENED!!!”.

Maggie continues to think about the dream. She realizes now
that she feared Barnabas for some reason, but cannot remember the
reason. She tries to remember what happened to her and starts
to have more flashbacks about being held captive in the old house.
She remembers Willie giving her an old fashioned dress to wear,
playing the musicbox for her to listen to, preparing her to be
Josette for Barnabas. She now clearly remembers it was Willie and
Barnabas who had kidnapped her, that they held her captive in the
old house, trying to transform her into Josette.
At Collinwood, Blair comes calling, ostensibly to find out how
Vicky is. He finds Carolyn alone downstairs, the rest of the family
being upstairs with Vicky. He takes her into the drawing room and
puts a spell on her making her his slave. He tells her she’ll
help Adam by supplying a lifeforce for Adam’s mate, that she’ll do
so willingly and without fear.
Willie returns to the secret room at the Mausoleum and tells
Maggie that she’s no longer in danger and can leave. But Maggie
is not listening; instead, she stuns him by asking him to tell her
about Josette. Willie tries to lie that he doesn’t know anything
about anyone named Josette, but Maggie tells him that she knows he
does, explaining that she remembers being in the old house with him,
him giving her Josette’s dress to wear, the musicbox, etc. Frantic,
Willie tries to convince Maggie that she’s just imagining things,
that the only time she was ever at the old house was the time she
came with her father Sam, but Maggie continues to concentrate and
remember more. She starts to remember Josette’s room, then starts
to remember having been in the mausoleum before and has a flashback
of the time Barnabas punished her for trying to escape by biting her
and putting her in the coffin, then screams and shouts, “I KNOW WHAT

HUMAN!!! HE’S ONE OF THE LIVING DEAD!!!”. Willie continues to
try to convince Maggie none of what she’s remembered ever really
happened, that it was all a dream, but Maggie just continues,
“And you helped him, Willie, YOU HELPED HIM!!”, causing the
love-stricken Willie to defend himself by blurting out that
he didn’t help Barnabas willingly, that he only did so because he
was under Barnabas’ power – a tacit admission that it all DID
happen. Maggie asks Willie to open the door so she can leave,
but Willie replies that because she remembers her kidapping
and captivity by Barnabas, he can no longer let her go. Maggie
exclaims, “I know why you brought me here! You’re still under
Barnabas’ power, and you’re trying to make me Josette again!”
Willie denies this and tries to tell her he brought her here for
another reason, to help her, but she refuses to believe him.
At Collinwood, Roger and Barnabas question a recovering Vicky
about her attack in the drawing room. Vicky tells them she thinks it
was Adam who attacked her, but isn’t sure because she didn’t see her
attacker’s face, that all she knows for sure is that it was a very large
man. Barnabas and Carolyn argue that there’s no proof that it
was Adam. Roger is puzzled as to why Barnabas and Carolyn seem
to be trying to defend Adam. Barnabas takes Vicky back up to
her room.
In the drawing room, Carolyn tells Roger she is leaving for
a few days to stay in Boston, that her bags are packed and sitting
in the foyer and she’s going to leave immediately. Roger is
furious that Carolyn would even think of leaving on a trip with
Elizabeth in her condition and Vicky injured and calls her
inconsiderate, but Carolyn replies that it’s precisely because
of all that’s happened that she’s leaving, that she’s all stressed
out and needs a rest. She goes out the front door. The sound
of a car leaving is heard. When Barnabas comes back downstairs,
Roger tells him that Carolyn has left to go to Boston and will be
away for a few days. Barnabas, knowing they won’t be able to
do the experiment without Carolyn, wonders what to do.
Barnabas walks back to the old house, wondering what they will
do now that Carolyn is gone and they cannot use her to do the
experiment. But when he walks into the old house, he is surprised
to find Carolyn in the living room. Puzzled, he tells her that
Roger had told him she was going to Boston. Carolyn tells him
that she only told Roger that to explain her absence, that she’s
come to the old house to do the experiment. She explains that
Adam had told her about the experiment and the need for someone
to serve as the life force donor, and that she decided to do so.
At the mausoleum, Maggie just stares at Willie, not saying
anything. Willie asks her why she’s staring at him. Maggie
replies, “It’s just occured to me that you may be one of the
undead too, just like Barnabas”. Willie is shocked that she
would think this and tries to convince her it’s not true by
touching her, but she screams and faints at his touch. Willie
At the old house, Barnabas is pondering Carolyn’s willingness
to be the donor, finding it strange. Willie comes bursting in
through the front doors. Barnabas starts to scold him, telling
him he knows it was him who kidnapped Maggie to prevent them from
using her in the experiment, that because of this, Vicky almost
died, but then stops in stunned silence when Willie drops his
bombshell: “Maggie remembers you kidnapping her! She remembers
everything! She knows what you were!”.

Barnabas rushes down into the lab, where Julia is working, and
tells her that Maggie’s memory has returned and she knows he’s
a vampire. Julia is very doubtful, saying, “Are you sure? It’s been
over a year. What would make her suddenly remember?”. Barnabas
tells her that Willie’s bringing Maggie to the mausoleum jogged
he memory. Julia suggests that Willie’s probably just exagerating.
Barnabas calls Willie down and tells him to tell Julia what happened.
Willie recounts the events in the mausoleum. Barnabas tells Julia
that she’s got to rush over to the secret room in the mausoleum and
hypnotize Maggie and make her forget again. Julia is reluctant to go,
saying she’s just about ready to do the experiment, but Barnabas
manages to convince her that the situation with Maggie is more urgent
by saying that should Maggie manage to escape and goes to the police,
the police will come to the old house to investigate and they’ll be in
REAL trouble when they find the lab and the body. Julia agrees to
go and hypnotize Maggie. She asks that Willie accompany her to help.
Julia goes upstairs and puts on her coat. After waiting, she
impatiently calls, “Willie!”. Just then, the front door opens and
Adam comes in. Seeing Jullia dressed to go out, he sarcastically
says, “Where are you going, Doctor? Out on a case? No, I don’t think
you will!”. Willie comes upstairs. Seeing Adam there, he shouts for
Barnabas. Adam, in a very sarcastic voice, tells Willie, “I thank you!
If it weren’t for you, they would have used Maggie Evans for the
experiment. Now, I will have the mate I want!” Barnabas comes upstairs.
Julia tries to convince Adam that she’s got to go to see a patient who
needs emergency medical attention, but Adam still refuses to let leave,
saying the patient can call another doctor. Barnabas tries to convince
Adam to let Julia go, saying, “She won’t be able to give full attention
to the experiment with her mind on her patient”, but Adam still
refuses to let her go, replying, “Not as concerned as you will be
about what will happen to Vicky if the experiment fails!”. Barnabas
and Julia continue to argue with Adam. As they are doing so,
they do not notice that Willie has quitely slipped away. He
returns at the landing of the stairs holding a rifle, aiming it
at Adam. He announces that he’s now going to solve all their
problems, saying, “All I’ve got to do is pull the trigger!”.
Julia exclaims, “And Barnabas will die!”. Adam calmly says,
“Yes. You forget that there’s a connection between me and Barnabas”.
Adam calmly walks up the stairs and takes the gun from Willie,
then orders him back down. They come back down into the living
room. Adam announces, “No one leaves!”. He points at the front
door and says, “The next person to walk through that door will
be my mate!” Barnabas tells Adam that Willie will have to stay
upstairs as guard while they’re doing the experiment downstairs.
He tells Adam to go down to the lab with Julia, saying that he’ll
join them in a few minutes after giving Willie his instructions.
After Adam goes down into the lab with Julia, Barnabas tells
Willie that he lied to Adam, that he doesn’t really want him
to stay upstairs to stand guard, but instead really wants him
to go back to the mausoleum to keep an eye on Maggie. Willie,
worried, asks what Adam will do when he finds he’s gone. Barnabas
assures him that Adam will be so engrossed in the experiment he
won’t notice his absence. Willie leaves.
Downstairs in the lab, Adam sternly tells Julia that she’s
not to treat his mate the way she hurt him, sticking him with
needles and injecting him with sedatives to keep him quiet.
He sternly tells her, “You are not to hurt her!” Julia tells Adam
she’s puzzled, asking him, “I don’t understand. You don’t want any
pain to come to your mate, but you’re willing to let Carolyn suffer
pain”. Adam is stunned. He tells Julia it had never crossed his
mind that Carolyn might suffer pain during the experiment. Julia
says, “You thought donating one’s life force wouldn’t hurt?”
Julia tells Adam of the pain Barnabas suffered during the first
experiment, but then tells Adam that she’s learned from the
first experiment, and will give painkillers to Carolyn before
Barnabas goes downstairs and joins Adam and Julia in the lab.
They prepare to do the experiment. They uncover the body. The head
is bandaged. Adam orders Julia to take the bandages off so he can
see the face. Julia explains to Adam that she can’t, that this is
something else she learned from the first experiment, that the
bandages are keep his mate’s face from becoming scarred during the
experiment as his was. Adam looks at the creation and says, “She will
be beautiful! She will be as beautiful as Carolyn! Soon, I will have
my own Carolyn!”.

Barnabas reminds Adam of his part of the bargain – that after
they do the experiment, he is to take his new mate and go far,
far away from Collinsport and never return. Adam rhapsodizes over
the body and says, “Soon, I’ll have another Carolyn!”. Julia –
not realizing until now that Adam expected the new creation to
look like Carolyn, breaks the news to him that it won’t look
anything at all like Carolyn. Adam becomes upset, but Barnabas
and Julia manage to convince him it would be impossible for them
to make his new mate look like Carolyn. He asks, “Will it act
like Carolyn, or will it be as different as me and Barnabas?”.
Julia replies that she doesn’t know because the experiment has been
performed only once before. She tells Adam, “We can only hope”.
Barnabas goes upstairs to fetch Carolyn for the experiment. Julia
notes that Adam seems very nervous and asks him why. Adam tells
her that he’s worried that the new creation might not love him.
He wails, “What if she doesn’t love me? What will I do? What?”.
Upstairs in Josette’s room, Barnabas tries to convince Carolyn
not to go through with the experiment, but Carolyn insists on
going through with it. Barnabas asks her why she’s doing this
for Adam. Carolyn replies that it’s because Adam loves her
unconditionally. Barnabas accuses Carolyn of being in love with
Adam. Carolyn doesn’t reply.
Adam comes up and announces that Julia is ready. Barnabas goes
downstairs. Adam tells Carolyn that after the experiment, he’ll
be leaving, never to return. He tries one last time to get Carolyn
to love him. He suggests that instead of doing the experiment, she
leave with him, but Carolyn refuses.
Adam and Carolyn go down into the lab. Carolyn is strapped
down on the table and injected with painkillers. The experiment
begins. Carolyn, in spite of the painkillers, screams in pain.
Suddenly, Julia tells Barnabas to keep an eye on an oscilloscope,
asking him to tell her if the sine waves deteriorate, telling him
that if they do, then Carolyn is in danger. The experiment
continues. The sine waves on the oscilloscope begin to deteriorate.
Barnabas tells Julia. Carolyn’s screams have stopped. Adam,
worried, rushes over to Carolyn, but Barnabas pushes her back,
telling him, “You’ll only get in the way!”. The sine wave
continues to flatten out. Julie examines Carolyn, finds that her
heartbeat is very faint and says, “If the creation doesn’t come to
life in 60 seconds, Carolyn will die!”.
