Synopsis Edit

A strange life or death experiment has been completed successfully, and the long night of danger for those who live at Collinwood is over. But at least one man believes that the success of the experiment must now be reversed. For he believes that the female creature brought to life in the Old House is evil incarnate.

Professor Stokes searches for Adam. David tells Stokes that he knew Adam was hiding in the West Wing. Carolyn finds them and sends David out while asking Stokes about Adam and his whereabouts. Maggie gives Willie the silent treatment. David sees Willie leaving the Collins Mausoleum, later he opens the secret room and finds Maggie. Willie returns later to find that David has let Maggie go.

Memorable quotes Edit

Willie: I'm doing this for your own good, don't you understand? Because I care for you, because I don't want anyone to hurt you. I mean, Maggie, I never treated you bad, did I? I never treated you bad like Barnabas did. I never put you in a coffin, did I? I'm not a bad guy!

Willie: Look, get mad at me, yell at me, do anything you want, call me names, I don't care, but just say something, Maggie!
