Barnabas found Joe, stabbed and showing fang marks, too.

SLIDE 7 (From Episode 608; Broadcast 10/23/1968)

Impelled to answer Angelique's summons, Barnabas arrived to find her in a strange state of excitement, and on the floor, the lifeless body of Joe Haskell, who had been his rival for the frightening affections of the woman in white. "Take him away!" she commanded hysterically.

Obeying, he caught sight of something that turned his blood to icewater. There on the dead man's neck were fresh marks like those on his own. Was it possible? With Joe already dead, had Angelique . . .? His legs weak with the horror of it, it was all he could do to stagger out of the house with Joe in his arms.



NOTES:

  • Impelled to answer Angelique's summons, Barnabas arrived to find her in a strange state of excitement... -- When you stop to think that when a vampire bites someone, anything in his bloodstream is now in hers, and also stop to think that this was the 60's, there are several possible conclusions one could draw here.

  • Joe Haskell, who had been his rival for the frightening affections of the woman in white. -- Not that either of them actually knew that, of course, but it still sounds exciting. Even if they had known, they'd only have been rivals in the "You take her", "No, YOU take her" sense.

  • "Take him away!" she commanded hysterically. -- This Viewmaster guy sure can write dialogue, huh? And I bet you thought I was kidding back on Screen 0 when I said they'd upped the Melodrama Factor tenfold.

  • Obeying, he caught sight of something that turned his blood to icewater. There on the dead man's neck were fresh marks like those on his own. Was it possible? With Joe already dead, had Angelique . . .? -- Well, didn't mom always say "waste not, want not?" I mean yeah, it's sad that he's dead and all, but if he's not going to be enjoying that blood any more, I know somebody who will...

  • His legs weak with the horror of it, it was all he could do to stagger out of the house with Joe in his arms. -- The fact that Joe had been hitting the brownies pretty hard lately may have had something to do with it too.
