Quote #4

[…] the lately glassy sea was like a roaring and devouring monster. (7.3)

The journalist describing the great storm at Whitby doesn't realize that the sea is, in fact, being controlled by a vampire, but his simile is pretty accurate.

Quote #5

[…] masses of sea-fog came drifting inland—white, wet clouds, which swept by in ghostly fashion, so dank and cold that it needed but little effort of imagination to think that the spirits of those lost at sea were touching their living brethren with the clammy hands of death […] (7.3)

Even though he doesn't know that the storm is caused by a vampire, the journalist (and everyone else) seems to have sensed that there was something not quite right about the fog.

Quote #6

Lucy's eyes in form and colour; but Lucy's eyes unclean and full of hell-fire, instead of the pure, gentle orbs we knew. (16.19)

The thing that makes vampire-Lucy so hard to take is that she still looks like good, pure, sweet Lucy. Evil is super evil when it disguises itself as something good.
