  1. The character of Sarah Collins first appeared as a ghost on Dark Shadows to various people. It was later revealed that she was the ghost of Barnabas’ little sister from the 1790’s period. When the program’s story went back in time to unveil more of the family’s history it was shown that when Angelique did everything in her witchcraft to foil Barnabas’ loved ones so she could finally marry him for herself, Sarah was the pivotal component. Angelique used witchcraft to make Sarah sick and then bargained with Barnabas that she could cure Sarah if Barnabas would wed Angelique.

    Later on, when Barnabas discovered Angelique was the witch causing so many problems with his loved ones, he shot her and as Angelique was dying she cursed him to become a vampire. Barnabas was later presumed dead but reported to others as leaving for England. As a vampire he roamed the grounds at night and Sarah saw him. Searching to find him she left the house during a storm, caught pneumonia and died right after telling her brother, “I love you, Barnabas. I always will.”

    As a ghost, Sarah would come and stop Barnabas when his evil side got the better of him in the 1960’s. However, because of his curse and wrong-doings due to it, she once appeared before him and expressed she would never return until he was good, like he had always taught her to be. He was as heartbroken and devastated as if his poor sister had died all over again.

    However much Barnabas did change, Sarah didn’t come back to the show likely due to the actress’ growth spurt.

    In this episode of The Pit, as people are improving with help from outside forces, it became very appropriate that we might have Sarah return, which, of course, would mean The World to her brother. ♥
