Having already seen that the prince has no love in his heart, she transforms him into a hideous beast and his servants into household objects. She reveals that the rose is enchanted and if the beast has not found love in his heart and someone to return it by the time the last rose petal falls off, he will remain a beast forever and his servants would remain household objects.
