Barnabas sits up in his coffin, surprised to still be alive. Ben tells him that he couldn't kill him. Ben admits that he betrayed Barnabas, who clutches his throat.
Ben explains that he tried, but couldn't do it.
He says Angelique prevented him from harming Barnabas. He tells him that Angelique says she'll prevent anyone from destroying him.
Ben mentions that he spoke to Josette, and that she remembers Barnabas' promise, and feels his presence. Ben tells him she's going away, because she's been convinced she's in danger here. Barnabas realizes he cannot see Josette again, and leaves the crypt.
Alone, Ben once again see's the laughing, disembodied head of Angelique. She says if Barnabas refuses to come to Josette, then she will come to him. She begins to call Josette's name, and slowly her voice morphs into that of Barnabas.
Josette lies in bed sleeping, hearing the voice of Barnabas call her name. Angelique's disembodied head appears in Josette's room, promising her that if she opens up to her, all her wishes will be granted. She tells Josette she will see her in dreams but only in shadows, and hear only a disembodied voice.
In Josette's dream Angelique guides her to Barnabas. She says that when she tells her, she will turn and see the place where Barnabas can be found. Angelique tells her to turn and she does, screaming as she finds herself in the cemetery.
Josette bolts up in bed, screaming. She gets up and says she knows where Barnabas is. She hears his voice, calling her, and leaves the room.
Josette makes her way to the cemetery. Ben finds her in the woods and asks what she's doing. He offers to take her home, and she says that she's fine. He asks why she's going to the graveyard and she tells him she doesn't have to answer to him. She hears Barnabas again, but Ben does not. He tells her if she heard a voice that sounded like Barnabas, it was not. Suddenly, he stops speaking when he sees Angelique's disembodied head. Josette asks if he will come with her. He explains he has to get back, and it wasn't his place to stop her to begin with. As if in a trance, Ben walks away, leaving her alone.
Josette makes her way to the Collins family crypt. Inside, she's startled when the door closes behind her and Barnabas is there. He asks why she came, and Josette explains that she heard his voice. She asks why he didn't tell her he was alive. She says he promised to return, and he has. He begs her to leave. She reminds him that he loves her. He says if she loves him, she will go. He says there are powers controlling them, and she suggests that love is controlling them. She pleads with him to hold her in his arms, and he does. drawing her hair back and exposing her neck. He bares his fangs to bite her neck...
John: I wonder where Angelique is dialing in from. The afterlife? Limbo?
Christine: Wherever it is, apparently only her head can make it through. Maybe she figures Barnabas can't hurt her if she's got no neck to throttle or bite.
John: Angelique certainly dialed up her control of Ben today. If she had exerted this much control over him previously, she might still be alive. Well, more alive.
Christine: Naomi is probably dead drunk, Joshua probably doesn't care, and Millicent is most likely making out with Lt. Forbes, but where's the Countess while Josette is screaming her head off in her bedroom? You'd think she'd come running.
John: Here we go again! Barnabas about to bite down on Josette, just like he'll bite down on Maggie Evans 200 years from now!
Christine: Like Josette, Maggie also had a dream and woke up screaming before Barnabas came calling. And just like his first visit to Maggie, Barnabas has once again forgotten to bring his fangs.
