The Barrows Castle

The group goes to the Barrows Castle in England but are split up. Jennifer is captured by Scissorman (who turns out to be Harris) who was told by the real Scissorman that if he caught Jennifer she would be his, but Harris is killed by the real Scissorman.

Jennifer then goes into the room with Kay's corpse and the Scissorman (who is really Dan Barrows, Bobby Barrows' brother that Jennifer blew up) who is looking to avenge his brother and mother, but before he can kill Jennifer, Nolan comes in and tells her to run. She puts the statue in a hole and a door is revealed. Jennifer then casts the door spell to open the door. A vortex then opens and Jennifer holds onto the rail but Dan or Scissorman holds onto Jennifer. She then stabs him in the face with the dagger and he falls into the vortex, dying as the door closes then Nolan pulls her up as the castle falls down, trapping Jennifer and Nolan. After the talk, they kiss and start a relationship. They are then rescued by Helen.





  • Being the child of Mary Barrows, he bears some resemblance to her, such as his blonde hair.
  • His name possibly comes from Edward Scissorhands, considering how the names sound similar. However, it is likely just a coincidence.
  • In the novelization, Kay tries to warn Helen Maxwell that Scissorman is coming after Jennifer. Immediately after this, it is implied Edward telepathically possesses Kay, causing Kay to bleed from her mouth.
