The confused and frightened narrator asks himself if Rowena, his second wife  has revived, but he notices that she has grown taller, and he tears away her funeral shroud to find that her hair is not blonde but black. She opens her eyes, and he realizes that Ligeia - not Rowena - is standing before him. It appears Ligeia is back from the dead.
