* ScarpiaUltimatum: Levelled against Barnabas by (who else) Angelique. She actually uses this twice: once she conditions for being his wife if she saves his sister (whose pains Angelique caused for exactly this purpose), and once they are married, she threatens Josette's life to keep Barnabas acting as a "faithful husband". When he tries to remove Josette from danger, the threat is simply expanded to his family. * SecurityCling: Done wordlessly by Daphne and the possessed David and Hallie, when Gerard [[spoiler:who is really Judah Zachery]], kills them.

** During his earliest episodes, it's clear that Barnabas was supposed to be from the 1830s, rather than the 1790s.

** Plus, the ''very first thing'' the show ever aired: the ABC announcer saying in an irritated tone, "Okay, I'm here. What do you want me to do?" (''pause'') "I can't see the slate!" He then proceeds to read the episode number as usual.

** Maggie mysteriously receives a pair of expensive earrings. Joe and her start fighting about her wearing them...and one falls out, causing the two to continue to have the argument while one of them is missing. Kathryn Leigh Scott attempts to hide it with her hand but it's obvious.

Added DiffLines:
* OutsideContextVillain: Barnabas. Before he shows up, the only other paranormal thing in town is Josette, whom every other character believes is a figment of David's imagination. Throughout all the investigation of the mysterious puncture wounds that show up on the necks of Loomis, Maggie, and assorted cattle, no one so much as utters the word vampire, even in jest, as though they don't know what one is.

* WomanScorned: It's heavily implied that Barnabas and Angelique had sex. It was before he became engaged to Josette, but Angelique got the short end of the stick either way. These events were the catalyst for Angelique's hatred for the Collins family.

The way it looks, he and Angelique had sex before his engagement, as he stated that, at the time, he didn't expect to win Josette's affections.
