- The great house of Collinwood appears serene in the afternoon sunshine. But one man's life is in grave danger. He is about to discover the secret of the closed off west wing. And the discovery of that secret may result in his death.
Adam is furious to find Harry outside his room. Harry lies and claims that Carolyn sent him. Once Adam lets him go, Harry pulls a knife and tells him he intends to collect the reward for his capture. Adam overpowers him, and is about to kill him when Carolyn interrupts.
Carolyn tells Adam to let Harry go, but Harry then tries to blackmail her into keeping Adam a secret. Carolyn responds that she knows enough to send him back to prison, so they come to an agreement: Harry will help her with Adam, and Carolyn will tell his mother that she's hired him as the family chauffeur. Adam kisses Carolyn, but she asks him never to do it again. Nicholas summons Dr. Lang's ghost.
