Victoria gives Jeff back the engagement ring after they argue over his recent strange behavior.

Synopsis Edit

It is nightfall at Collinwood, and the great mansion lies quietly under a gleaming moon. Beneath its radiance, the Old House hides dangerous secrets, secrets a young man is attempting to learn. He is under the spell of an evil woman, and because he cannot break her hold over him, he must secretly learn how to complete a terrifying experiment.

Jeff Clark watches over Eve's body, but is consumed by guilt. Julia discovers Jeff with her notebook, but is doubtful of his intentions. After taking the notebook and locking it away, she expresses her doubts to Barnabas, but is interrupted by Victoria, who enters and tells Barnabas that Professor Stokes is coming to see him. She then takes Julia aside and asks if she knows any reason why Jeff keeps acting so strangely, but Julia doesn't give her any satisfactory answers. Jeff eavesdrops and agonizes about his inability to tell Victoria the truth.

Stokes shows up and tells Barnabas about Adam's escape and likely bad (homicidal) mood. Jeff tries to leave for yet another date with Victoria, but is told by Stokes that if he doesn't stay and keep working on the experiment, Adam will likely take his frustrations out on Victoria, the person he originally kidnapped and threatened.

Jeff then tries to break his date in a polite manner with Victoria, but she gets agitated and demands reasons for his frequent absences and his refusal of Roger's job offer. When he can't give her any, she gives him back his ring and breaks off their engagement, saying that she could never marry a man who kept secrets from her.
