Joshua meets Barnabas in the drawing room of the new house. Barnabas tells him that he and Angelique will be married tonight. Joshua explains he will either marry her when he tells him he can, or he will not marry her at all. Joshua reminds him who is the master of the house, and Barnabas says that he thinks Joshua is trying to keep them from getting married. Joshua denies it, and Barnabas brings up his attempting to bribe Angelique to leave. Joshua admits that she turned down $10,000, so she must truly love him. Barnabas tells his father that he will proceed with or without his consent.
Joshua threatens to cut him off with a penny, take away his property and share of the family business, and remove Barnabas from his will. Barnabas tells him that he and Angelique will be married that night. Joshua tells him that he is no longer his son.
Angelique is putting things away in Josette's room when Barnabas enters. He tells her that his father was furious. He explains that he's been disinherited. If he marries her, he will have no money, no property, and no role in the family business. Angelique suggests that he'll change his mind. He gives her a chance to opt out of the marriage, and she tells him she did not fall in love with what he owned. He tells her to pack her bags, and they will leave tonight. Angelique kisses him when Josette walks in.
She says she could not help but overhear Barnabas, and says she's sorry his father was not understanding. She releases Angelique from any further obligation, and tells her that she will miss her. Angelique leaves, and Josette tells Barnabas that she will miss him, too. They wonder about how different things could have been, had they gotten married as planned. Barnabas tells her goodbye and leaves.
Barnabas and Angelique prepare to leave when Naomi stops them. She asks them to come into the drawing room. Barnabas says there's no point, but his mother insists. She tells them that they can live in the old house. The deed is in her name, and she offers it to them as a wedding present. Barnabas says he cannot accept it. She explains she's doing it for Joshua as well. In time, he'll admit he was wrong, and if Barnabas isn't around to accept his forgiveness, it will kill him. Barnabas agrees to stay in the old house.
Joshua finds Naomi sitting by the fire and joins her. He tells her that they're gone, but he expects he'll eventually come crawling back home. Naomi tells Joshua that Barnabas and Angelique are living at the old house. He threatens to have a constable remove him from his property. Naomi reminds him that the deed is in her name, and she gave it to them as a wedding gift. Joshua asked if she did it to spite him. She says Barnabas is their only son. Joshua warns her to obey his command not to see or speak to them.
At the old house, Barnabas leaves Angelique, explaining the minister will arrive shortly. Angelique walks around the old house smiling broadly.
The ghost of Jeremiah appears in the room, and she asks what he's doing there. She sends him back to his grave. He walks towards her, ignoring her commands. She begins to sound frightened as she tells him that she controls him, yet he continues towards her.
John: Why would Barnabas give up everything just to live up to a promise he made to Angelique? Does he really have feelings for her?
Christine: I think Barnabas is trying to assert his independence by engaging in a battle of wills with his father. He may also have been a little freaked out by zombie Jeremiah's warning and wants there to be no chance for reconciliation with Josette. I guess it should not be surprising that Angelique does not care that Barnabas will be disinherited, considering her powers, though it does give her a redeeming quality to assert that she does not love Barnabas for what he owns. Will she ultimate transmogrify Joshua again to punish him?
John: Well, Josette, you had your chance to make one last pitch to Barnabas. Now you're losing your man and your servant in one fell swoop.
Christine: Josette is not really in a position to reclaim Barnabas after running off with Jeremiah. It seems Angelique's machinations may have finally succeeded.
John: I love how Angelique so calmly reacts to Jeremiah's appearance. Ah, the life of a witch. Too bad Reverend Trask has missed out on all of the supernatural goings on of the past week!
Christine: It looks like Jeremiah intends to set up house with the newlyweds to be. Incidentally, the portrait of Benjamin Collins that was identified in Episode 59 has already found its place in the foyer at Collinwood. I'm wondering if Jeremiah's portrait has already been painted and is waiting to be hung over the mantle in the drawing room.
