The wedding chronicles continues...
|To Josette or |
Not To Josette
The Sheriff also visits the Old House that night and comes very close to finding Maggie when he hears the music box from upstairs..but being a very serious man of the law, he fails to investigate further. When he leaves, Barnabas pushes Maggie more into Josettedom.
Meanwhile at the hospital, Doctor Woodard is trying to determine the cause of the anomaly found in Maggie's blood. He claims it to be terrifying, impossible and eventually inhuman (that's as close to saying supernatural as a man of science can get and it's good enough for us). He's waiting for a blood specialist called Dr. Hoffman (mark this name!!) to come and have a look. But that night, he finds his office trashed, blood samples missing and the bars on the window bent like as if by Hulk. They reach the conclusion that Maggie was taken from her bed.

|Maggie's ghostly appearance|
The Sheriff comes back after hours of searching but they can't find her anywhere. Burke wasn't able to see her so Sam is reluctantly convinced he imagined it.
|Maggie plays Josette|
Maggie sneaks down to the cellar to listen in on Barnabas & Willie's conversation as Willie builds another coffin for Maggie/Josette. Barnabas, happy that Maggie's finally succumbed to being Josette, plans to give his "bride" eternal life the following night.
|Obviously diamonds are not |
Willie's best friend
|Maggie the vampire slayer?|
Damn, it was close!!! Well actually I think Maggie had millions of chances to escape from the Old House but used none of them.
And about Barnabas. He's one of those kind and noble on the outside but rotten evil on the inside characters; placing him as a living critique of aristocracy. He'll eventually walk the fine line between good and evil on the road to redemption but that's later..Right now he's pissing me off for terrorising my dear Maggie. What's creepy about him though is that he actually believes Maggie is Josette and he's trying to rewrite the past into a future where they'll live happily ever after.
Btw it really seems that Josette the ghost has left this realm for good. We hope she crossed over nice and good and has a peaceful afterlife. Take care dahlin'~
We also say farewells to Mitch Ryan aka Burke Devlin as he did his final appearance in episode 248. He got fired due to his alcoholism and his failure to show up for an episode's shooting! Luckily in the later years he snapped out of it and continued to work as a successful actor. The new Burke is yet to be seen..
