Having scaled the castle exterior to the Count’s bedroom once again, and having traveled the passage to the chapel, Jonathan Harker discovers the Count lying in his earthen box. To Jonathan’s horror, the Count’s youth has been half restored, and he lies gorged with blood that trickles down his chin. Jonathan is unable to find the front door key on the Count’s body and tries to stab the Count with a nearby shovel. However, a twitch reaction from the Count startles Jonathan, and the shovel only grazes the Count’s forehead, leaving a deep gash. Jonathan returns to the Count’s bedroom, but when he hears the Szgany entering the chapel by some other means, the door the the passageway blows shut, trapping Jonathan in the Count’s bedroom. Fearing the promised return of the spectral sisters, Jonathan writes a final goodbye message to Mina before attempting his most perilous climb yet- down the treacherous precipice to escape the Castle Dracula.
