I always cry that Frid and Karlen did not get to re-do this very important, pivotal scene they share in this episode. But Frid recovers beautifully (IMO) and suggests that the earlier stumbling was just a case of Barnabas once again struggling to hide his own emotions from others... or himself.

In the opening voiceover, Karlen speaks of Liz as "a woman who has held a family together."  I like that that was acknowledged even if only in a voiceover.

Today's scenes with Mrs. Johnson really underline how much the character has changed since her original manifestation in 1966.  1966 Mrs. Johnson thought Roger Collins was more or less the spawn of Satan.  The original Mrs. J was fairly strongly religious, or at least a strong belief was more than a little hinted at in some of her lines.  In the original Laura storyline, Mrs. J strongly disapproves of the holding of the seance or anything to do with the occult.

Her personality changes could very plausibly be explained by her experience of living at Collinwood.  I really wish they had given the character a scene where she explained to Burke, or somebody, why she had decided to stay on there.

Today's image and caption are hysterical.  I'm imagining Grayson's Julia playing this scene.  And Julia's role in the OS was really to sort of let the perennially clueless Barn know when, metaphorically, his own ass was on fire... a role that shifts to Liz in Depp Shadows.

One of my personal favorite episodes, and somehow it always makes me think of Halloween, so it's cool that we're watching it now.

Love the opening scene between Nicholas and Mrs. Johnson...

For those who are into that sort of thing, I believe Roger Davis clutches his hair.

I meant to ask... beyond the line in today's image, was there ever any acknowledgement that Liz noticed that Julia had just disappeared overnight?

I was watching some of the early Laura Collins episodes (1966/67) a few weeks ago and it was pretty blatantly clear that Roger was THRILLED at the idea of Laura packing David off for good.  There are some really good scenes when Liz starts to dig her heels in and Roger is genuinely baffled as to why she's opposed to something that "is really in his best interests."

It's so beyond apparent that Roger would just love to be rid of David at this point...

I meant to post this as I believe it was taped the day they did this episode:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JaRg1u86Mc

Radio interview for the Ron Barry Show with Jonathan, Grayson, HHA, Robert Rodan, Roger Davis and (only in the first segment, because he had to leave for an appointment) Don Briscoe.

Interesting that Barry treats Davis as if he's already figured out he's a jerk... some start early...

Love Grayson's infectious laughter when Briscoe purrs, "I'm the apprentice vampire."

Joseph Morgan needs to connect with his Inner Flouncing Tart... perhaps he should try watching some Pansy Faye episodes of DS?  lol

Mison has an inner "flouncing tart" ... now I *really* think I am in love...

Not sure if it's on topic for us, but I saw a report on another site that in the first episode of the new series of American Horror Story, this time subtitled Coven, there's a scene in which Boss Witch and Grand Poohbah Jessica Lange releases someone from a chained coffin.

I personally have zero interest in the series at this point, but it might be amusing to have those who are watching (and I know you're out there) check in with any further plot points that seem oh so familiar to us DS fans.

Apparently the writer of these shows is quite the fan himself... recalling earlier installments that seem to have had a number of references to our show on board...

Love the opening pan of Julia's flasks, vials, retorts and lab equipment... the psychedelia of the color scheme seems very 1968...

Interesting dream.  It's also true that Robert Rodan went into DC's office one day to ask for a raise.  The next day, Adam went into Prof. Stokes' spare room and was never seen or heard from again (though in all fairness, the script did provide a short explanation for his disappearance--if you had happened to dash into the kitchen for a cup of tea, however, you'd have missed it).

I can STILL remember a dream I heard during the original broadcast that I was at Collinwood and I was meeting Barnabas, Julia and members of the family.  (I have strong abilities in the area of lucid dreaming.)
