Trickster Barnaby hasn’t really made an appearance since the beginning of Season 3, but suddenly he’s back in full force! In “Barnaby, Home at Last,” Barnaby tricked Chapel into thinking he couldn’t come home for his summer vacation because he’d lost his job at the hospital. As Chapel is REALLY starting to cry over the phone, Barnaby shows up at the door with a “Psych!” Chapel forgave him after he gave her one of her favorite things, a Philip Treacy hat, even though it was just a knockoff! When Barnaby pulls these kind of tricks, he’s not trying to hurt Chapel – he’s just trying to have some fun.
What do you think Barnaby will need to do for Chapel to forgive him THIS time?
Luckily, Marzia won’t put up with Barnaby’s tomfoolery, even though they’ve only just met! An alternative title for this strip would be “grown adult Barnaby Smith gets completely TOLD by a 12-year-old Italian girl.”
