Barnabas Collins, Teenager

I’ve just realised that while Barnabas Collins appears to be a 200 year old vampire, who looks like a 40-something Canadian actor, he is in fact a teenager. A moody emo teenager who makes bad decisions because he can’t think ahead, who is convinced the world revolves around him and his feelings, and who deeply resents the adults in his life (Ben, Willie,Julia) when they try to give him good advice.

Which is probably why he appealed so much to the teenage demographic when Dark Shadows first went to air!

You have gone to your fate and I have gone to mine!”

Josette wishes to return to her grave. She doesn’t hate him. She feels neither love nor hate now. She is dead. She came back because he willed it but he is not to do that again. He must let her rest. Barnabas objects. Josette lifts her veil. She isn’t pretty anymore. Barnabas reacts in horror.

"No!"

*Barnabas Collins is the worst boyfriend.

I also refuse to believe that anyone at Collinwood was tacky enough to bury the widowed Josette in her wedding gown from her broken engagement. Seriously. That is extremely bad taste. Joshua would have been scandalized.

And the award for most shallow boyfriend goes to. ..

graceawaits:

Josette! Why did you choose to die hating me? Do you hate me still? You cannot! I refuse to believe you do. You were the victim of the witch’s curse just as I was. But Angelique’s curse has given me certain powers. I can do things no human being could ever do. Perhaps I have the power to bring you back to me. I must try! I need you so! I will call to you and you must hear me. Death cannot separate us! You must return to me! You must!”

Josette jumped off a cliff to get away from Barnabas. What must a girl do to let him know that she’s just not that into him?

As I progress through the 1795 storyline, I’m coming to like and sympathize with Joshua Collins more and more—and his sister Abigail less and less. Which is to say I’ve just been watching her plotting with Trask to make sure that Victoria Winters gets an even less fair trial than she is already getting. Gosh these two are a loathsome couple. I can’t wait to see them get their just desserts!

The Collins family hasn’t done too good a job keeping Barnabas’ death a secret, since both Victoria Winters and Peter Bradford know about it. And Peter seemed rather puzzled that Millicent Collins thinks Barnabas is alive! I’m surprised that the entire village of Collinsport isn’t aware that Barnabas is dead.

(And now I’m watching Joshua dressing down Nathan Forbes. Go Joshua! )

Victoria’s trial is a complete farce—everyone screaming at each other across the courtroom. Collinsport legal procedure is even sillier than its law enforcement!

I’m just a little bit behind you! I’m on 419 right now. Suki just showed up!

Suki is brilliant! I just wish that she had stuck around for a few more episodes.
