“[Mina] had risen, as if impulsively, from where she lay on the sofa, and raised both her hands, palms upwards, as if lifting a weight.”

A great moment that we never see in the movies.

Most Significant

"Usually [Mina] speaks on a hint [when under hypnosis], but this time the Professor had to ask her questions, and to ask them pretty resolutely, before we could learn anything."

The tie between the Count and Mina is much weaker now. Perhaps Van Helsing is right, the Count has cut his conscious connection to her, but the "baptism of blood" connection that remains is much weaker. Perhaps Klinger is right (460 n1), and Mina is feigning difficulty so that the information (or disinformation, rather) that she gives will seem more credible.
