Barnabas comes downstairs where Julia is working on the experiment. He tells her that Maggie Evans has remembered him as he was. He tells her that she must hypnotize Maggie again. She says she's ready to start the experiment, and he tells her it must wait. Julia can't understand how Maggie's memory could come back.
He calls Willie downstairs and asks him to tell Julia about Maggie. Willie is upset, and Julia suggests that he's exaggerating. He confirms that Maggie recalled Barnabas being one of the undead. Julia says she doesn't know what she dreads more—seeing Maggie in the mausoleum, or seeing Carolyn in the lab for the experiment. Barnabas says he'll tell Carolyn there's a problem with the equipment, and she says that it might convince her not to go through with it.
Upstairs, Julia prepares to leave with Willie when Adam enters and tells her that she's not going anywhere. He directs her to the drawing room, and she says she has an ill patient she must see. Willie comes upstairs, sees Adam, and calls Barnabas.
Adam thanks Willie for preventing Maggie from providing the life force for his mate. Barnabas comes upstairs, and tells Adam that Julia must go. Willie goes to leave and Adam stops him. Willie convinces Adam to let him go upstairs.
Barnabas explains that they are not stalling. Adam tells them that Carolyn is ready now, goes upstairs to get her. He tells them to join her. Willie appears at the top of the stairs with a rifle. He threatens Adam, and Julia reminds him that if he kills Adam, Barnabas will die. Adam approaches Willie and grabs the rifle from him. He points the rifle at Julia and tells her that his mate will be the first one to leave the old house.
Adam tells them all to go down to the lab. Barnabas says Willie should stay upstairs unless anyone comes to the old house. Adam leads Julia downstairs. Barnabas tells Willie to go to the mausoleum, and not to let Maggie out of his sight.
Julia prepares the equipment for the experiment. She tells Adam to sit down and not touch anything. He asks her if the experiment will work. She tells him to be quiet or go upstairs.
He tells her not to hurt his mate. She points out he doesn't want his mate harmed, but he has no concern about Carolyn's comfort and safety. Barnabas comes downstairs and Julia checks everything one last time. He reminds Adam that he agreed to take his mate away forever.
Julia sends Barnabas to get Carolyn. Adam intervenes and says he will get Carolyn. He adds that if anything happens to her, they will suffer.
Adam exposes the bandaged head of his mate, and he tells Julia to remove the bandages so he can see her. She explains the bandages will prevent her from being scarred like he is.
John: Doesn't Barnabas realize that if Maggie were to go to the police claiming that he's a vampire, they wouldn't take her seriously?
Christine: He's too busy being melodramatic. I love when he told Willie, "You brought me to the edge of disaster, and I must find a way back," as he is illuminated by the red light in the lab. I also enjoyed when Willie asked him what he should say to Maggie and Barnabas said, "Say anything you want, but keep it down!"
John: It's interesting how Adam seems to get more sophisticated with each episode. I'd give Nicholas Blair the credit, but every time we see the two of them together, we're reminded just how naive Adam is.
Christine: If only he were sophisticated enough to go out and buy himself another sweater so he wasn't wearing that green abomination from Carolyn every day.
John: It looked like we were finally going to see the face of Adam's mate today! Unfortunately, it was just a tease. For now, she resembles the mummy's bride...
Christine: Maybe mummies will be the next monster to arrive on Dark Shadows. Let's hope we have a mate on Monday and can get moving on this storyline, so Blair can finally realize the flaw in his plan to have Adam and bride make his superhuman army by procreation.
