Barnabas asks the unconscious woman if he was wrong to bring her there. He places his hand on her cheek and her eyes open.

Angelique is coming downstairs at Collinwood when she starts to faint. 

Barnabas helps the woman stand up.

Angelique screams and collapses. She reaches towards the phone, calling for her father.

Barnabas brings the woman upstairs. He tells her there's nothing to be afraid of. He then tells her that she's very lovely, and asks if she understands him. He asks who she is, but she just stares at him. He shows her the drawing of her and she smiles. she runs her hand across Claude North's name. Barnabas asks who that is. He puts the drawing away, and then tells her that he's going to take her to a place she might recognize.

Angelexis grabs the phone cord and pulls it off the table. Maggie hears and comes running downstairs. She goes to call a doctor, and Angelexis tells her to call her father. Maggie helps her upstairs.

Barnabas leads the woman to the Collins family crypt. Inside, she seems to recognize the place. He leads her to the secret room, and tells her that it frightens her. He opens the secret door and she looks inside. He steps in and beckons her to join him. She does. 

He lights the candles on the table. The woman appears to be frightened. Barnabas picks up a knife from the chair, and realizes someone else has been in the room since he was last. He asks the woman if the knife means anything to her. She seems to recognize it. He asks her if it belonged to Claude North.

Stokes tells Angelique that the moment Roxanne speaks will be the end of her. At that point she'll be in complete control of her faculties, and she will have regained her life force. Angelique asks what he's going to do about it. He says he must invoke the powers of darkness that have guided him to be successful in his experiment. He starts an incantation.

Barnabas puts the knife back on the chair. He notices the woman appears to weaken. He takes her out of the secret room.

Angelique tells her father that she's feeling much better. She says she can't go through it again, and her father says they must find the body and hide it. He says they can find the body by contacting Claude North. She asks who he is. He says he hoped to never see him again.

Barnabas brings the woman back to the Old House, and leads her into the secret room behind the bookcase. He helps her back up on the table. Barnabas hears a very loud car approaching. He leaves the woman and closes the secret door.

Carolyn enters the house, calling for Will. She sees Barnabas, and he says he has to talk to her. She's preoccupied with the results of her shopping. She looks at him and asks him what's wrong.

She asks if something happened to Will. Barnabas tells her that Will is dead. Carolyn asks if he killed him, and he says Will jumped out of the Tower window in Collinwood. He says Angelique found out what he knew. Carolyn says that he is as guilty as she is, and screams that she hates him before running off.

Angelique tells her father he's wasting time. He says he'll try and find Roxanne, and if he can't, he'll seek out Claude North. She asks about him again, unimpressed that he's afraid of some ordinary man, and he assures her that Claude North is no ordinary man.

Maggie finds Carolyn in the drawing room, and tells her she's terribly sorry. Carolyn says that despite everything, she loved Will, and he loved her. Maggie asks if she's seen him yet. She says seeing him will only remind her of what's wrong with Collinwood and everyone in it. She says no one is who they seem to be, with Barnabas on the top of the list. She starts to tell Maggie about Barnabas, but she stops when he enters.

Stokes comes downstairs and hears the arguing in the drawing room. He realizes that this is his opportunity to search for Roxanne in the old house.

Barnabas asks Maggie to let him speak to Carolyn alone. Carolyn tells her that if she doesn't agree, he'll force her to do it. She leaves them. Barnabas says it would be easy for him to stop her. She says she's not afraid of him. He says he's not trying to hurt her, and he was helpless to protect Will. He says he will avenge his death. She asks if that will bring him back, and he says no. He tells her that they were happy until Angelique came into their lives. She agrees. He offers to take her home. She says she needs to see Will first. He leads her upstairs.

Back at the old house, Barnabas promises Carolyn he will send Angelique back to her grave. She goes upstairs and he opens the secret panel to find the woman missing.

Our thoughts

John: Wouldn't you think Barnabas would find something more appropriate than a nightgown for the woman to wear when he drags her out to the cemetery in the middle of the night?

Christine: Oh, I think there is some method to his madness in dragging her out to a cold cemetery in such a revealing nightgown. It may be what fuels his obsession for her.

John: Barnabas believes in ripping the band-aid right off! He didn't hesitate to tell Carolyn that Will was dead without so much as suggesting that she sit down, first.

Christine: She is right to assign blame to him for Will's death. While the parallel Collins family may have had their Angelique problem to deal with, Barnabas' presence has only made things worse. Now Will is dead and Quentin is on the run because of his meddling. Barnabas has managed to wreak havoc and cause suffering in every time period he has existed in. The guy is a walking disaster!

John: Laying odds on who will portray Claude North. Based on his being a master of evil would suggest it could only be the parallel-time equivalent of Nicholas Blair... but if he has the ability to draw folks into existence, he might very well be the Charles Delaware Tate of parallel-time. I would welcome the former, and dread the latter!

Christine: I had not considered either of those possibilities, and a parallel Tate is something to fear indeed! He's got to be a bad guy if even Stokes doesn't want to deal with him.
