|Barnabas is Angelique's bride now|
Angelique is happy that her love has come along- as her slave; yet here nonetheless- but Nicholas is a total buzzkill: He wants to control Angelique's hold over Barnabas concerning when and where she'll meet her newly earned prize. He's like a suffocating dad that no one wants to have but thankfully Angelique is a rebel at heart. The moment he is away, she shows us she ain't gonna be taking orders from anyone, anyone I say!!
Back at the Old House, Barnabas announces that the mission was a failure to the worried Julia and Prof Stokes. Starting here (and for the next 10 episodes) Barnabas manages to hide his condition, covers up his puncture marks (with a very manly scarf) and nobody even suspects that something is wrong with the man who's always been quite together but is acting very peculiarly now. And Julia is supposed to be a psychiatrist, pfft!
|Joe's lousy suicide|
|Joe is Barnabas' "guestage"|
|Throw in a brunette and |
you'll have Adam's Angels
|Just what he needs before the wedding:|
Ex lover from another life
|The flashback to the aforementioned|
affair in another life
Later, Eve visits Jeff in his apartment to make him understand what she's just found out but when she gets too pushy, Jeff kicks her out.
Sooo, Nicholas now knows about Joe's "accident" (although not about Angelique's involvement in it) and to eliminate him, he summons Harry Johnson and gives him a fancy tube of poison to replace with his medicine. Though one might ask since he is this powerful warlock and all, how come he doesn't use his magic tricks to give Joe a heart attack or something?
|Ignore Harry and look at|
Mrs Pantene Johnson
Later, out on a weird cemetery trip to determine whether the Collins Mausoleum is fit enough to satisfy Liz's needs as a resting place, she and Roger run into deadbeat Joe Haskell and bring him back to Collinwood. Upon seeing him, Mrs Johnson freaks out and tells her employers what Joe did. Roger calls the cops.
|Sheriff observes Barnabas' oddity|
*I have to admit the whole Barnabas-Joe-Angelique thing is a bit boring. I think I miss the old, sinister Barnabas the vampire rather than Barnabas the more-than-usual hesitant lackey. Now let's see how long before Julia finds out the vampire is Angelique. Hopefully, not long.
*I enjoy watching Eve, she is such a show-stealer. Her connection to Peter/Jeff is also a great "you-didn't-see-that-coming-did-you?" addition to the story. If only her flashback scenes were done with the original actress that played Danielle.
*Liz is a total kookoo head by now. She runs into Eve at the garden and thinks she is "the angel of death". That was a fun lil scene.
*Nicholas and Eve make a great duo: both are fierce and dominant. Nicholas slapped her at one point and she didn't really mind it. Not to give specific mental images but their sex would be one house-wrecker.. literally!
