Count Petofi tries to buy off Johnny, however he prepares to cut off his hand.

Synopsis Edit

Collinwood is a place where many are struggling to save themselves from destruction. And on Widows' Hill, near the great estate, a frightened gypsy fights the ghost of Sandor, sent to destroy her.

Magda manages to banish Sandor's spirit, who wants to "help" her by transporting her to the realm of the dead, but she is then cornered by King Johnny and Istvan.

Barnabas arrives at the last moment to intervene, demanding that she be set free. He tells King Johnny that Count Petofi has been reunited with his Hand. King Johnny is told about the spell Petofi placed Magda under, and forgives her, vowing that Petofi shall never again curse one of his gypsies.

King Johnny agrees to cure Quentin in exchange for Barnabas revealing Petofi's location.

Petofi tries to buy off King Johnny, who prepares to take back the Hand by once again severing it from Petofi's arm, using the Golden Scimitar of the Romana tribe, with which King Johnny has armed himself, having been appointed by his ancestors Keeper of the Hand, the only gypsy over whom Count Petofi has no power.

As he lights the nine sacred candles representing the nine slaughtered gypsies, King Johnny vows to also take Count Petofi's life as well this time.
