It has been noted in a previous scene that there is a secret knob which connects the room in which Henrik will be staying and that of the old master's room next door. When the knob is pushed, it opens part of the wall and the bed of the mistress in the next room is pushed from that room into the room containing the knob. When Henrik is later quite desolate after dinner after having made quite a scene there, he plays the piano, then retreats to his room. There he tries to hang himself, but clumsily falls, hitting the knob. The wall opens, the bed from the next room is pushed into Henrik's room, and in the bed, having been distressed at dinner .... is Anne! At first Henrik thinks he is dead, even pouring water on himself. He then goes to Anne, and they declare that they have always loved one another and kiss passionately. From after that point, they decide to elope. The way the wall opens, with an angel on the top of the wall or near the top of the four-poster bed from where he tried to jump with the rope and with music playing (sounding like a music box or a celeste) announcing the arrival of the adjoining room's bed, is pretty darn enchanting.
