As Quentin's execution approaches, Gerard takes away Angelique's powers making her human.

Synopsis Edit

The tragedy at Collinwood is now nearly complete: Daphne is married to Gerard, Quentin and Desmond are in prison again and their beheading is to be this night. A frantic Barnabas has begged Angelique to intercede on Quentin's behalf but she has refused, and her refusal has made Barnabas more aware why he can never love her, she lacks the human trait of kindness. But Angelique alone is determined to prove Barnabas wrong, and so she begins using her powers to defeat the man she fears above all, Judah Zachery, whose soul possesses Gerard Stiles.

Gerard stops Valerie and takes away her powers making her human again. Charles holds Valerie captive. In parallel time Justin Collins is ill and warns that Catherine should not marry Morgan because of something at Collinwood. Shortly before the execution Leticia visits Desmond in jail. He tells her he planned to marry her in Boston and she begs him to marry her now. He refuses to, because he knows it would place her under suspicion. They then say their marriage vows to each other, for themselves alone. Valerie kills Charles and escapes. Quentin's head is placed on the chopping block.

Memorable quotes Edit

Angelique: Let him suffer, as he has caused suffering to so many others. And then, let him die, that this house may be rid of him forever.

Desmond: I want you to have everything that's mine. That way, Leticia, I want you to take the money and leave Collinsport. I don't want you to work the music halls any more. I want you to have a fine life, Leticia. The kind of life you would have had with me.
Leticia: No life is fine without you.

Charles: I am more frightened of Judah Zachery than I am attracted to you.

Gerard: So you are Miranda. Well, you have used your powers for the last time.

Barnabas: (talking to self about those in Parallel Time) Why can't I help them.

Quentin: I was a fool to let Gerard get away with it. I deserve to die.

Quentin: The only way out of this is death.

Quentin: When I was born, I saw the light of day and when I die I want to see the black of the night.

Background information and notes Edit

Story Edit

Bloopers and continuity errors Edit

  • A boom microphone shadow can be seen after Gerard takes the knife away from Leticia.
  • James Storm flubs as he tells Angelique, "If it hadn't been for you, I would have been beheaded. I was beheaded!" Also, he refers to the year of this event as "1690", when it should be 1692.
  • The jailer does not put the key completely in the lock when he locks the door behind Leticia when she visits Desmond before his scheduled execution.
  • David Selby slips into his native southern accent as he leaves the jail. [Is there ever a time when he doesn't speak in his native sexy accent lol?]
  • The time is 2:50am when Leticia return to Collinwood, at which point it is stated there is only twenty minutes until Quentin and Desmond's execution. This conflicts with the previous episode in which a 2:50am time was given, in which it was stated that the execution would take place at dawn.
  • As Leticia returned to Collinwood both doors of the entrance open after closing the door she entered.
