==Biography==
  +
===1760 - Childhood===
  +
As a young girl in Liverpool, England, Angelique catches sight of a young [[Barnabas Collins (2012)|Barnabas Collins]] and his family as they board the ship headed for America. Her mother, a servant for the Collins family, roughly reminds Angelique that she must accept her place -servitude- in the social hierarchy and must not even gaze freely upon her "betters," including Barnabas. This instills in Angelique a deep resentment of the upper classes and a strong desire to rise above them.
   
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">In the present day, she is a successful businesswoman, having taken over the fishing business when the Collins' power declined. Using various personalities and personas, she has recreated herself to continue control over her small town empire. When learning of Barnabas' return, she attempts to haggle and seduce him simultaneously. When this fails, she blackmails him into intercourse with the promise that she'll leave Victoria Winters a.k.a Maggie Evans alone.</p>
+
=== 1776 - Adulthood ===
  +
Growing into an attractive, dark-haired young woman, she appears to follow in her mother's footsteps as a servant to the Collins family in their American mansion, [[Collinwood (2012)|Collinwood]]. Her desire to rise above the upper classes possibly turns her to witchcraft, an art in which she becomes quite skilled. She develops an attraction to the Collins heir, Barnabas, and either through natural or magical charms arouses his amorous interest. Though he clearly experiences carnal pleasure with her, when Angelique asks him to affirm love for her, Barnabas candidly states that he would be lying. Instead, he falls in love with a young woman closer to his own social standing, [[Josette DuPres (2012)|Josette DuPres]].
   
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">After a brief fling between the two, Barnabas states that it can never happen again, angering her.After debating with her board, she attempts to imprison Barnabas. She tricks him into her office and after a business deal gone wrong, she pushes him into a casket and chains him inside. Upon setting the cannery on fire, she then takes him to the Collins' family grave and places him inside. She states that after a few centuries she'll retrieve him and with that, leaves him there.</p>
+
Relegated to scrubbing the Collins floors while the man she loves openly romances another of her "betters," Angelique sees Barnabas and Josette in a tender embrace and is driven by romantic and class jealousy to use the dark empowerment that witchcraft has provided her to wreak revenge upon the entire Collins family as well as improve her own fortunes.
   
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">She proceeds to reveal Barnabas's true nature to the town, as well as attempting to get his entire family arrested as accomplices to murder. This leads to the final battle, wherein, she displays numerous powers and admits to her own dastardly deeds. She admits that she had a werewolf bite Carolyn Stoddard as a child and was the reason that David's mother died at sea. The final battle ends with her, broken and defeated, pulling her heart from herself and offering it to Barnabas.</p>
+
First, Angelique devises a spell that kills [[Joshua Collins (2012)|Joshua]] and [[Naomi Collins (2012)|Naomi Collins]], Barnabas's parents and the founders of the American Collins lineage. Then, she ensnares Josette in another spell, compelling the young woman to leap to her death from [[Widows' Hill (2012)|Widows' Hill]]. Barnabas tries to stop his beloved Josette from jumping, but is too late and is forced to watch her fall onto the rocks below. When the despairing Barnabas attempts to follow her in death, Angelique places the curse of vampirism upon him so that his suffering may last forever. This also means that Barnabas has time to reflect on his actions. Angelique wants Barnabas to come to her, to show his true and genuine affections towards her. She would rather his love be real than manipulate his feelings, as this is all she has ever wanted.
==In ''Dark Shadows''==
 
===Childhood===
 
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">In a single brief childhood scene set in Liverpool, England, 1760, Angelique's early interest in Barnabas is established. The young Angelique, around 10 years of age, is portrayed by actress Raffey Cassidy. She is depicted with her mother, a servant, departing on a sailing ship from the Liverpool docks for "the New World," along with the Collins family. The childhood scene also helps establish Angelique's class-based resentment of the Collins clan's privileges, for she is cautioned by her mother that she must accept her place, servitude, in the social structure of the time and not even gaze freely upon her "betters," including Barnabas.</p>
 
===1776 - Adulthood===
 
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">As she develops into an attractive, dark-haired young woman, Angelique seems to follow in her mother's footsteps as a servant to the Collins family in their New World mansion, Collinwood. However, she develops skills in witchcraft and - whether through natural or magical charms - arouses the amorous interest of the Collins heir, Barnabas. Though he clearly experiences carnal pleasure with her, when Angelique asks him to affirm love for her, Barnabas candidly rejects the notion. Instead, he falls in love with a young woman closer to his own social standing, Josette duPres.</p>
 
   
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">Relegated by the prevailing attitudes of the era to scrubbing theCollins floors while the man she had hoped would love her openly romances another of her "betters," Angelique sees Barnabas and Josette tenderly embracing. Driven by romantic and class jealousy, she begins to use the dark empowerment that witchcraft has provided her to wreak revenge upon Barnabas and the Collins family, and to improve her own fortunes.</p>
+
Still not content, Angelique stirs the townspeople into an angry mob, pointing Barnabas out as a monster and facilitating his imprisonment in a chained metal coffin. She ensures that he's buried deep into the earth, locked away for all eternity as punishment for not returning her love.
   
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">Her first act of retaliation is a magical spell that kills Joshua and Naomi Collins, who are Barnabas Collins' parents and the founders of the American Collins lineage. In the film's first depicted supernatural act, Angelique crushes a small figurine of a seahorse, using her fingers to crumble it into pieces, as she intones, "Make the high and mighty low / Arrogant creatures, down you go!" This phrasing makes clear that Angelique is driven not only by anger at Barnabas' refusal to love her, but also by resentment of her status as a servant in the household of the far more privileged Collinses. And as she concludes this incantation, a large piece of decorative rooftop statuary, shaped like a seahorse, totters and plummets to the ground, crushing Joshua and Naomi as they take an evening stroll below.</p>
+
===1972===
  +
Over the next two centuries, Angelique establishes Angel Bay Seafood, a rival fishing company to Collins Cannery. As she becomes more and more successful, the Collins fortune declines further and further. Posing as her own great-great-great granddaughter, "Angie" Bouchard makes it her hobby to cause suffering to the remaining members of the Collins family. She delights in murdering [[Laura Collins (2012)|Laura Collins]] at sea, sending a werewolf to bite baby [[Carolyn Stoddard (2012)|Carolyn]], and possibly causing the disappearance of Elizabeth's husband. Although shocked when Barnabas escapes from his prison, Angie's actually rather happy that he's back in her life. She welcomes him home not as a mere servant, but as a powerful pillar of the community who ran his family's business to the ground, mocking him for being too-out-of-date to do anything to stop her.
   
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">Angelique then commits the two pivotal acts of vengeance that drive the subsequent action of the film. First, she recites a second incantation: "If he doth another choose / To lend his heart and eye / Then magic shall the slighted use / That all he loves shall die!" This recitation brings about the death of Josette, who, bound by the spell, is compelled to leap from Widows' Hill. Then, as Josette's fate is sealed and the despairing Barnabas attempts to follow her in death, Angelique places the curse of vampirism upon Barnabas so that his suffering cannot end. (While playing a similar role in the plot to events of the original daytime serial, the film depiction has the sequence reversed, with Josette magically induced to kill herself before Barnabas' vampire curse is evident; in the original series, Josette flees from Barnabas and hurls herself from the cliff in horror upon discovering that Barnabas has become a fanged bloodsucker as a result of Angelique's curse.)</p>
+
However, Barnabas isn't deterred and starts helping his family regain their former glory by restoring Collinwood and their old cannery, hypnotizing fishermen who have contracts with Angel Bay to instead work for Collins Cannery. Angie soon arranges a meeting with Barnabas in her office and offers him a large amount of money in exchange for his family fishery, but he refuses. She then tries to seduce him, which he only succumbs to when she threatens to kill everyone he loves, including a young woman called [[Victoria Winters (2012)|Victoria Winters]] who looks strikingly similar to Josette. They make love fiercely and supernaturally, but Barnabas immediately regrets the whole thing and tells Angelique that he cannot succumb to her charms anymore. Hurt, Angelique clutches his arm and warns him that if she can't have him, she'll destroy him. Nevertheless, he pulls away.
   
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">According to the later recounting of "legends" by Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, Barnabas tried to persuade the people of Collinsport that Angelique has placed him under a curse, but they found him deranged. However, the film shows the actual events in 1776, when Angelique herself leads the townspeople in a torch-carrying mob to Collinwood, points out Barnabas, declaring "There's the monster!" and facilitates his imprisonment in a buried coffin for almost two centuries, until 1972 when the film's principal events are set. The townspeople appear to harbor no suspicion of Angelique's being a practitioner of black magic or of her responsibility for Barnabas' transformation into a killer.</p>
+
The following night, she finds out the Collins are throwing a party. Despite being uninvited, Angelique dolls herself up in a stunning red gown and tracks down Barnabas, most likely intending to seduce him again. Unfortunately for her, she spots him kissing Victoria and grows so furious, her skin cracks like porcelain.
===1972===
 
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">Over the next 196 ensuing years, the Collins family fortunes decline. (Apparently there were heirs other than Barnabas, for both Collinwood and the family fishing business endure, though both decline into near-ruin.) Angelique, adopting a series of guises through the decades to conceal her true age, establishes a prosperous rival to the Collins fishing business that she calls Angel Bay Seafood and becomes a well-known and at least superficially highly regarded pillar of the community of Collinsport. As the film reaches the events of 1972, Angelique is shown to have changed her naturally dark hair color to blonde and now goes by the name "Angie" Bouchard. She (in different guises over the past centuries) has been responsible for the decline of the Collins family and its fortunes. When she learns of Barnabas' escape from his prison, she confronts him and mocks him as being too out-of-date to do anything to stop her.</p>
 
   
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">She sets up a meeting with Barnabas in her office and tries to convince him to sell the Collins fishery to her. She tries to win him back by seduction, for if he doesn't, she will kill Victoria and take away everything he loves. She succeeds, which results in a torrid act of supernatural lovemaking between them. However, because he loves Victoria, Barnabas tells her that he cannot succumb to her charms no more and asks her to forgive him. Lovelorn once again, Angelique then clutches Barnabas' hand and tells him that if she cannot have him, she'll destroy him. Unharmed by this, Barnabas still leaves. The following night, she went uninvited to the Collins party in a sparkly red dress looking for Barnabas, and not only learns about Barnabas' feelings for Victoria but become very angry when she witnesses Barnabas and Victoria kissing.</p>
+
Some days later, Barnabas barges into Angie's office and demands that she end his curse and return humanity to him. Laughing off his urgency, she gives him one last offer: either they become partners in both senses of the word and rule Collinsport side by side, or she locks him back in the iron box. Sadly, but as expected, he immediately refuses. Angelique uses her powers to chain Barnabas inside the same casket that kept him prisoner for decades and has him transported to the Collins family crypt. Popping open the lid one last time, Angelique tells him that looking back, having him locked away for all eternity may have been a bit harsh. Instead, she'll keep him imprisoned for a few more centuries so he'll have more time to think about their relationship. She carefully places her lacy red panties over his face, then slams the lid shut and struts off to ruin the rest of his family's lives.
   
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">The next night after Barnabas killed Dr. Hoffman for using his blood, Barnabas meets with Angie again and demands she end his curse. She gives him one last offer, she in turn demands that Barnabas become hers for all eternity. When Barnabas refuses, she uses her powers to chain him inside the same casket she had previously locked him in and has the casket transported to the Collins family crypt, she put a pair of her red panties in the coffin, saying that he will think a little more about them. She them blows up the Collins family rebuilt canning factory via spell and then publicly accuse Barnabas not only of the arson of the cannery but also of several murders, including the workers, the hippies, and Dr. Hoffman.</p>
+
Angie heads directly to the Collins Cannery and blows it up with the use of a spell. She publicly accuses Barnabas of setting the fire as well as accusing him of several murders, utilizing a recording she made of Barnabas admitting to killing several people from town, including [[Julia Hoffman (2012)|Dr. Julia Hoffman]]. The onlooking crowd is outraged and willingly follows Angie to Collinwood in order to have Elizabeth Collins arrested as Barnabas's accomplice, but suddenly, Barnabas himself shows up and offers to be arrested in her place. However, he insists that Angie be arrested too. He bites an absolutely shocked Angie, cracking her skin and forcing her to use her powers to blast him away, exposing them both as supernatural monsters.
   
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">Not knowing that Barnabas has escaped, Angelique leads the police and an angry mob to Collinwood to have Elizabeth arrested as an accessory to murder. She's shocked to learn that Barnabas has escaped and offer to be arrested, he then shows them what monsters "they" are and bites Angelique, causing her skin to crack and outs Angelique as the one responsible.</p>
+
=== Death ===
==Final Battle/Death==
+
Angelique battles [[Barnabas Collins (2012)|Barnabas]] inside [[Collinwood (2012)|Collinwood]], using spells to bring the very mansion itself to life. Yet Barnabas manages to grab her by the neck and throw her through the roof into [[Carolyn Stoddard (2012)|Carolyn's]] room, where the girl is trying to hide the fact she has turned into a werewolf. Angelique lightly drifts down from Carolyn's room and soon proves to be more than a match for [[Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (2012)|Elizabeth]], [[Willie Loomis (2012)|Willie]], and Barnabas combined. Carolyn decides to join the fight and attacks Angelique, but is soon knocked unconscious. In answer to Elizabeth's stunned horror at her daughter's lycanthropy, Angelique reveals that she sent a werewolf to bite Carolyn when she was a baby because she felt that the Collins family line was getting boring and knew that a werewolf in the family would bring them more suffering.
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">Barnabas and Angelique battle inside the mansion, using spells to kill Barnabas. Barnabas then grabs Angelique by her neck and throws her up into Carolyn's room, who's revealed to be a werewolf. Elizabeth and Willie join in the fight on Barnabas' side, but the three are overcome by Angelique's magic. Carolyn attacks Angelique, but Angelique fights back and knocks Carolyn unconscious, as she reveal that she sent a werewolf to bite her when she was a baby. They continued the fight until one of the statues holds Barnabas. Angelique then sets Collinwood on fire. When it looks like Angelique won, David appears and tell her to leave him alone, saying that she will kill him first. She confronts him and with a boastfully taunt, asks what will he do. At that point he summons the ghost of his mother, which she has killed. The ghost charged her with a single powerful strike and haunting scream that throws her into the chandelier. Both of them crashed into the floor, where she is broken up.</p>
 
   
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">During these final scenes, Angelique's face has begun to crack and collapse in a manner resembling that of a porcelain doll or eggshell, and as Barnabas speaks with her in her (apparent) dying moments, she is revealed to be virtually hollow inside. Barnabas then admits that there was a time a when he may have loved her, that he would've want to spend eternity with her. As the last ditch to ask Barnabas to love her and proof against his assertion that she has no heart, Angelique - literally - offers him her heart. Barnabas rejects her offer, knowing that her heart is never capable of loving and that she only wants to have him for herself, saying that's her curse. Her throbbing heart literally broke as it crumbles to pieces, and she finally succumbs to her death.</p>
+
Angelique sets the mansion on fire and brings its carvings to life. With Elizabeth and an unconscious Carolyn surrounded by flames and Barnabas held fast by one of the carvings, Angelique prepares to give her former lover a death blow when suddenly, young [[David Collins (2012)|David]] orders her to leave his family alone. Mildly surprised by his daring, she declares that she'll kill him first. However, he summons the ghost of [[Laura Collins (2012)|his mother]], whom Angelique had killed years ago. The spirit's banshee shriek is so powerful, it throws Angelique into the chandelier with enough force to send it crashing down.
  +
  +
Tangled in the chandelier, Angelique's skin has severely cracked in a manner resembling that of a porcelain doll, revealing that she is almost completely hollow. Fatally injured, her spells lose their power and Barnabas is freed from the carving keeping him prisoner. He approaches his former lover and quietly admits that there was a time when he may have loved her and wanted to spend eternity with her. She begs him to reconsider, insisting that they could still live happily together forever, but he gently points out that she never loved him, she only wanted to possess him. In one last attempt to win his love, Angelique pushes through her fragile chest and literally offers Barnabas her heart, begging him to take it. He can only stare sadly as her heart breaks, crumbling to dust, as Angelique finally succumbs to her death.
  +
  +
Barnabas gently caresses Angelique's cheek one last time, causing part of her cheek to shatter further. Her body presumably burns as the mansion is consumed by flames.
   
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">In the end, Angelique died in vain, as Victoria, whom was under her spell immediately saved by Barnabas by turning her into a vampire, once again, thwarting Angelique's proclaimed intention that if she cannot have Barnabas, no one else will.</p>
 
 
==Personality==
 
==Personality==
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">While her principal villainy in the film is supernatural hostility against the Collins family, Angie is also depicted as having more generic qualities intended to turn audiences against her. She is a rather callous businesswoman who enjoys imperiously giving orders ("Start cracking the whip!"), demands unrealistic productivity from her workers, and is indifferent to others' suffering. ("Accidents happen," she shrugs when initially told a group of eleven workmen from the town have been killed the night before, uninterested until she learns that their throats were torn out at the same location where she'd presided over Barnabas' burial 196 years before.) She is also depicted as a bit vain, driving through town in a flashy red Plymouth Barracuda convertible, smiling and waving at the townspeople, and checking herself in the mirror. She hypocritically characterizes the original Collins family as "looking down their noses" at others, while later proclaiming herself (and Barnabas, for whom she still carries a determined torch) better than the other townspeople. Scoffing at Barnabas' threats to expose her as a witch, she boasts that the townspeople "are my worshipers now," declaring herself the "last big fish" in the "little pond" of Collinsport. She gloats that the Collins family are like ants she has enjoyed burning beneath a metaphorical magnifying glass, and attempts to compel Barnabas to "rule" the town alongside her.</p>
+
Born in a low class, Angelique is extremely ambitious to rise above her station and earn everyone's admiration, especially her beloved [[Barnabas Collins (2012)|Barnabas Collins]]. Unfortunately, her love is unrequited. When she catches sight of him in a tender embrace with the upper-class [[Josette DuPres]], severe romantic and class jealousy lead her to curse the entire Collins family, causing the deaths of Josette and Barnabas's parents. But that is not enough for her, so Angelique curses Barnabas to become a vampire, stirs up an angry mob, and leads them to bury him alive in a chained metal coffin for nearly two-hundred years as punishment for not loving her.
  +
  +
Angelique herself spends the next two centuries building a fishing empire that eventually topples the Collins Cannery. A callous businesswoman, she demands unrealistic productivity from her workers and is indifferent to others' suffering, such as when she learns that eleven workmen from the town were recently murdered. Even so, she is highly regarded as a pillar of the community in [[Collinsport]]. She basks in the respectful admiration of the citizens as she drives through town in her flashy red Plymouth Barracuda convertible, a vehicle symbolizing luxury, power, and everything Angelique couldn't have as an 18th century servant.
  +
  +
She claims to loathe arrogant people who "look down their noses at others", yet at the same time she believes herself and Barnabas to be better than normal people because of their supernatural qualities. She takes great pleasure in "ruling" Collinsport and relishes the townspeople's admiration of her, even describing them as her worshipers.
  +
  +
Angelique believes herself to be truly in love with Barnabas, but he claims she merely wants to possess him. It is beyond doubt that she is incredibly attracted to Barnabas physically, but her reactions to his rejection of her love -cursing him to become a vampire, severely antagonizing all of his family members whose only crime is being related to him, and turning Collinsport into "her town"- are blisteringly extreme and would seem to support Barnabas's views on her love.
   
<p style="font-weight:normal;color:rgb(255,255,255);font-size:14px;">In spite of her love with Barnabas, she was actually never capable of loving and only wants to control him as confirmed by Barnabas himself. This was also shown when Barnabas denied her at her first attempts to win his heart, she ultimately killed his parents and his lover as well as turned him into vampire as the retaliation (though her curse to turn him into vampire simply for her had another chance to win his heart that eventually vain). However, her sheer of hostility against Collins' family out of Barnabas rejecting her for the last time ultimately drove her to commit somewhat genocidal act against the family that she despised (save to Barnabas), as she forces Barnabas to watch as she kills what was left to his family before destroyed by the ghost of David's mother.</p>

BiographyEdit

1760 - ChildhoodEdit

As a young girl in Liverpool, England, Angelique catches sight of a young Barnabas Collins and his family as they board the ship headed for America. Her mother, a servant for the Collins family, roughly reminds Angelique that she must accept her place -servitude- in the social hierarchy and must not even gaze freely upon her "betters," including Barnabas. This instills in Angelique a deep resentment of the upper classes and a strong desire to rise above them.

1776 - Adulthood Edit

Growing into an attractive, dark-haired young woman, she appears to follow in her mother's footsteps as a servant to the Collins family in their American mansion, Collinwood. Her desire to rise above the upper classes possibly turns her to witchcraft, an art in which she becomes quite skilled. She develops an attraction to the Collins heir, Barnabas, and either through natural or magical charms arouses his amorous interest. Though he clearly experiences carnal pleasure with her, when Angelique asks him to affirm love for her, Barnabas candidly states that he would be lying. Instead, he falls in love with a young woman closer to his own social standing, Josette DuPres.

Relegated to scrubbing the Collins floors while the man she loves openly romances another of her "betters," Angelique sees Barnabas and Josette in a tender embrace and is driven by romantic and class jealousy to use the dark empowerment that witchcraft has provided her to wreak revenge upon the entire Collins family as well as improve her own fortunes.

First, Angelique devises a spell that kills Joshua and Naomi Collins, Barnabas's parents and the founders of the American Collins lineage. Then, she ensnares Josette in another spell, compelling the young woman to leap to her death from Widows' Hill. Barnabas tries to stop his beloved Josette from jumping, but is too late and is forced to watch her fall onto the rocks below. When the despairing Barnabas attempts to follow her in death, Angelique places the curse of vampirism upon him so that his suffering may last forever. This also means that Barnabas has time to reflect on his actions. Angelique wants Barnabas to come to her, to show his true and genuine affections towards her. She would rather his love be real than manipulate his feelings, as this is all she has ever wanted.

Still not content, Angelique stirs the townspeople into an angry mob, pointing Barnabas out as a monster and facilitating his imprisonment in a chained metal coffin. She ensures that he's buried deep into the earth, locked away for all eternity as punishment for not returning her love.

1972Edit

Over the next two centuries, Angelique establishes Angel Bay Seafood, a rival fishing company to Collins Cannery. As she becomes more and more successful, the Collins fortune declines further and further. Posing as her own great-great-great granddaughter, "Angie" Bouchard makes it her hobby to cause suffering to the remaining members of the Collins family. She delights in murdering Laura Collins at sea, sending a werewolf to bite baby Carolyn, and possibly causing the disappearance of Elizabeth's husband. Although shocked when Barnabas escapes from his prison, Angie's actually rather happy that he's back in her life. She welcomes him home not as a mere servant, but as a powerful pillar of the community who ran his family's business to the ground, mocking him for being too-out-of-date to do anything to stop her.

However, Barnabas isn't deterred and starts helping his family regain their former glory by restoring Collinwood and their old cannery, hypnotizing fishermen who have contracts with Angel Bay to instead work for Collins Cannery. Angie soon arranges a meeting with Barnabas in her office and offers him a large amount of money in exchange for his family fishery, but he refuses. She then tries to seduce him, which he only succumbs to when she threatens to kill everyone he loves, including a young woman called Victoria Winters who looks strikingly similar to Josette. They make love fiercely and supernaturally, but Barnabas immediately regrets the whole thing and tells Angelique that he cannot succumb to her charms anymore. Hurt, Angelique clutches his arm and warns him that if she can't have him, she'll destroy him. Nevertheless, he pulls away.

The following night, she finds out the Collins are throwing a party. Despite being uninvited, Angelique dolls herself up in a stunning red gown and tracks down Barnabas, most likely intending to seduce him again. Unfortunately for her, she spots him kissing Victoria and grows so furious, her skin cracks like porcelain.

Some days later, Barnabas barges into Angie's office and demands that she end his curse and return humanity to him. Laughing off his urgency, she gives him one last offer: either they become partners in both senses of the word and rule Collinsport side by side, or she locks him back in the iron box. Sadly, but as expected, he immediately refuses. Angelique uses her powers to chain Barnabas inside the same casket that kept him prisoner for decades and has him transported to the Collins family crypt. Popping open the lid one last time, Angelique tells him that looking back, having him locked away for all eternity may have been a bit harsh. Instead, she'll keep him imprisoned for a few more centuries so he'll have more time to think about their relationship. She carefully places her lacy red panties over his face, then slams the lid shut and struts off to ruin the rest of his family's lives.

Angie heads directly to the Collins Cannery and blows it up with the use of a spell. She publicly accuses Barnabas of setting the fire as well as accusing him of several murders, utilizing a recording she made of Barnabas admitting to killing several people from town, including Dr. Julia Hoffman. The onlooking crowd is outraged and willingly follows Angie to Collinwood in order to have Elizabeth Collins arrested as Barnabas's accomplice, but suddenly, Barnabas himself shows up and offers to be arrested in her place. However, he insists that Angie be arrested too. He bites an absolutely shocked Angie, cracking her skin and forcing her to use her powers to blast him away, exposing them both as supernatural monsters.

Death Edit

Angelique battles Barnabas inside Collinwood, using spells to bring the very mansion itself to life. Yet Barnabas manages to grab her by the neck and throw her through the roof into Carolyn's room, where the girl is trying to hide the fact she has turned into a werewolf. Angelique lightly drifts down from Carolyn's room and soon proves to be more than a match for Elizabeth, Willie, and Barnabas combined. Carolyn decides to join the fight and attacks Angelique, but is soon knocked unconscious. In answer to Elizabeth's stunned horror at her daughter's lycanthropy, Angelique reveals that she sent a werewolf to bite Carolyn when she was a baby because she felt that the Collins family line was getting boring and knew that a werewolf in the family would bring them more suffering.

Angelique sets the mansion on fire and brings its carvings to life. With Elizabeth and an unconscious Carolyn surrounded by flames and Barnabas held fast by one of the carvings, Angelique prepares to give her former lover a death blow when suddenly, young David orders her to leave his family alone. Mildly surprised by his daring, she declares that she'll kill him first. However, he summons the ghost of his mother, whom Angelique had killed years ago. The spirit's banshee shriek is so powerful, it throws Angelique into the chandelier with enough force to send it crashing down.

Tangled in the chandelier, Angelique's skin has severely cracked in a manner resembling that of a porcelain doll, revealing that she is almost completely hollow. Fatally injured, her spells lose their power and Barnabas is freed from the carving keeping him prisoner. He approaches his former lover and quietly admits that there was a time when he may have loved her and wanted to spend eternity with her. She begs him to reconsider, insisting that they could still live happily together forever, but he gently points out that she never loved him, she only wanted to possess him. In one last attempt to win his love, Angelique pushes through her fragile chest and literally offers Barnabas her heart, begging him to take it. He can only stare sadly as her heart breaks, crumbling to dust, as Angelique finally succumbs to her death.

Barnabas gently caresses Angelique's cheek one last time, causing part of her cheek to shatter further. Her body presumably burns as the mansion is consumed by flames.

PersonalityEdit

Born in a low class, Angelique is extremely ambitious to rise above her station and earn everyone's admiration, especially her beloved Barnabas Collins. Unfortunately, her love is unrequited. When she catches sight of him in a tender embrace with the upper-class Josette DuPres, severe romantic and class jealousy lead her to curse the entire Collins family, causing the deaths of Josette and Barnabas's parents. But that is not enough for her, so Angelique curses Barnabas to become a vampire, stirs up an angry mob, and leads them to bury him alive in a chained metal coffin for nearly two-hundred years as punishment for not loving her.

Angelique herself spends the next two centuries building a fishing empire that eventually topples the Collins Cannery. A callous businesswoman, she demands unrealistic productivity from her workers and is indifferent to others' suffering, such as when she learns that eleven workmen from the town were recently murdered. Even so, she is highly regarded as a pillar of the community in Collinsport. She basks in the respectful admiration of the citizens as she drives through town in her flashy red Plymouth Barracuda convertible, a vehicle symbolizing luxury, power, and everything Angelique couldn't have as an 18th century servant.

She claims to loathe arrogant people who "look down their noses at others", yet at the same time she believes herself and Barnabas to be better than normal people because of their supernatural qualities. She takes great pleasure in "ruling" Collinsport and relishes the townspeople's admiration of her, even describing them as her worshipers.

Angelique believes herself to be truly in love with Barnabas, but he claims she merely wants to possess him. It is beyond doubt that she is incredibly attracted to Barnabas physically, but her reactions to his rejection of her love -cursing him to become a vampire, severely antagonizing all of his family members whose only crime is being related to him, and turning Collinsport into "her town"- are blisteringly extreme and would seem to support Barnabas's views on her love.
