A despondent Barnabas (Jonathan Frid) told Ben about Josette's death and questioned how he could face eternity without her. He vowed to end Angelique's curse -- that everyone Barnabas loved would die -- by admitting to his father Joshua and mother Naomi what he had become and letting them decide his fate. Going to Jeremiah's grave, Barnabas told his brother's spirit that he forgave him for marrying Josette and bemoaned their deaths. Cousin Millicent saw Barnabas in the cemetery and mistakenly thought he was back from England. Millicent told a shocked Joshua and Naomi that she wanted Barnabas to kill Lt. Nathan Forbes in a duel, finally admitting that Nathan deceived her about his marital status. As the episode ended, Joshua told Naomi that Abigail would represent the Collins family and testify against the imprisoned Vicky at her witchcraft trial.
