With the setting of each day's sun Angelique became bolder
and more rebellious against her domination by Nicholas. -- Not that
we know exactly what their relationship is. We established back in
Slides 1 and 4 that they knew each other and that he had some kind of
nominal authority over her, but that's about it.
Domination? Can you say that on TV? Sounds terribly risqué.
She would outwit him and make Barnabas hers forever. Then he,
too, would sleep in coffins by day... -- Not that he ever has
before, of course! Barnabas is a good guy, remember? Honest Injun.
Cross my heart and hope to... uh...
Of course the danger to Barnabas is a bit minimized here by
the fact that Barnabas is not supposed to be ABLE to become a vampire
as long as Adam is alive, but since Viewmaster seems to have
completely forgotten Adam's very existence at this point, I guess we're
meant to do the same.
...and by night roam the world seeking . . . -- What?
WHAT?? An honest man? An all-night pizzeria? Honestly, Viewmaster
picks the oddest times to cut things out.
...she bared her fangs and grasped him in her terrible
embrace, draining his life essences almost to the last drop. --
[Obligatory Maxwell House joke withheld here.]
In reply she shrieked, "I defy him to do his worst. And
you - You will not die. You will be mine forever!" -- And away
we go again. Like clockwork, whenever the story stops making sense,
they pump up the intensity. Of course if she's going to turn Barnabas
into a vampire (which she can't because of Adam, but we've forgotten
that, remember?), he HAS to die first. That's how people become
vampires on this show; by dying of blood loss after a vampire attack.
So one minute we're told that she's going to kill him and turn him
into a vampire. When she starts to actually do that he says
she's gone too far, and now he's going to die, and become a vampire.
(But that was the plan, right?) Then she disagrees, saying that she's
going on with her plan, but also not going on with it. Does
this remind anyone of Wheel of Fortune? Where she stops, NOBODY knows!
And with that she fled back to her crypt, for day was
near. -- Embarrassment at having to read these lines may have had
something to do with it too...
