Angelique Loves Quentin

(Or at least wants him.)


I’d been meaning to share this snippet from episode 794 for some weeks now. It shows a great sign of Angelique making a change in her personality.

There is some information Barnabas brings to her attention to which she is clearly trying to figure out how she can re-establish her hold on Quentin.


For Barnabas her understanding was just manipulating a ton of people in his household in the 1790’s, whereas with Quentin it’s a matter of maintaining something he, Quentin, personally needs. So she doesn’t wish to give away what she knows or has. (Still! That’s different in her understanding of how love works. Little by little!)


Angelique has bargained Quentin into marrying her. When Barnabas realises this he tells her,


“You’re doing this to spite me…”


Which, yes, Barnabas has every right to feel. He’s already been down similar roads with her via his family in the time of his original birth and life, as well as her Cassandra role in the 1960’s earlier according to their chronology. Barnabas has absolutely no reason to trust Angelique.


But then? Angelique confesses,

“I’m doing it because I’m BORED! With you, with the future and the past and the present. I’ve bided my time. I’ve waited and waited, I’m sick of waiting!”

(Yeh, I hear that!)


“Life, even for people like us, Barnabas, was meant to be lived. I intend to start living it and there’s nothing you can do to stop me.”


It is at this point I say:


ATTA GIRL!


That’s the Angelique I expected when we got through all her damn tantrums and manipulations as a clueless villain!

Go for Quentin, girlfriend.


For you?


He’s perfect!

  1. I liked your insight on this change in Angelique, Daryl. I know that you explained it to me before, but now that I read the quotes from her and Barnabas, and got your break down on it, I get it for Angelique. Cool!

      Aw! Thank you! I made sure to get all the quotes accurate, just rewinding and listening and writing them down. It was fun to find that video again, was surprised how old it was. I remember practically a whole YEAR (or so it felt) searching for an Angelique/Quentin video online (or anything with them together, any interest). Then someone finally did it and I was super excited, to her great surprise.

      I think I remarked something to the effect of, “Thank GOODNESS! This is perfect, someone else to get her mind off that Mr. Darcy– I mean, Barnabas Collins.” ^_^ (Man, could that really have been 2013?)
