Revenge- Allegiance (3×19)

“All this time I thought she was waging war on our family. But this goes much further. It’s revenge. For David.”

This season has turned into a came of cat and mouse, only now, the stakes are much higher this time around.  Victoria is finally (and I mean finally) onto Emily and her devious plan! As Emily’s red marker returned, Victoria’s black-as-her-soul sharpie made its debut! In a shocking twist, Victoria too is crossing off victims from the same Grayson Global picture as Em’s. When I say she’s onto Emily, she’s inside-her-head onto Emily. All this time we’ve known Emily was never after the Grayson family; it wasn’t personal. She’s been after revenge for her father. Isn’t it a little bittersweet watching the “rival” figure something out that you’ve already known this whole time… This revelation is really going to turn the tables. We’ve gone from a cat and mouse chase to a mouse being chased by a snake….. an angry and venomous snake. What does a world where Vicki knows about Emily’s revenge look like? What happens when her identity is blown?

What’s genuinely still interesting about the show is how much can happen surrounding a bombing that happened years ago… and the amount of people that are involved! Have you seen Emily’s picture! She hasn’t even crossed off half of it and we’re way deep into season 3! And now, we’re getting more and more key players involved. The need for revenge isn’t just stemming from Em’s anymore, its protruding from literally half the people in the Hamptons

Jack’s craving it after Daniel stole Margeoux and the Grayson’s stole Amanda, Declan, Stevie and his father from him.  That’s literally like Jack’s whole family. Margeoux and Jack finally called it quits after he realized that they wouldn’t work out as long as she’s being blindly played by Daniel. It’s annoying to me because Margeoux keeps talking about how she was used by her father since she’s been a little girl and no one would walk all over her now, but that’s exactly what’s happening. How can she not see it? Daniel is playing literally everyone in the Hamptons, including his sister, who thinks her brother brother is some kind of nobleman. She convinced her new boo-thang Javier to sign over his idea for a brilliant app to Daniel because Nolan didn’t deserve him as a partner. She made Javier believe that Nolan was just using him, which is true about Daniel, but Daniel sealed the deal by buying Javier’s freedom and his dream car. Nolan’s loss of Javier caused him to go all Tom-Cruise mission impossible on Daniel and Charlotte and declare war on the charmer. I’m starting to think the only smart woman around here is actually Victoria. At least she sees through everyones ‘charms’.

The storyline this week was weak (no pun intended) but necessary to move things along and prove Victoria’s theory that Emily is trying to get revenge for David Clarke. She brought a rich investor to town, who was involved in the Clarke murder and waited to see if Emily would pounce on the opportunity to get close to him and than take him down. She did. After some digging, Em’s found out that he used some bad chemicals that weren’t so eco-friendly. During his presentation, she switched the test samples he used in his presentations so when he drank it he fell to the ground and needed to be rushed to the hospital. She was than able to blackmail him using Nolan’s advanced technology and get some evidence that would incriminate Conrad in the bombing of the flight. Unfortunately, Emily was way too absorbed in her mission to realize that Victoria was testing her and she played right into her hand. Although I’d love to see this get taken a step further— Victoria needs to make the connection that Emily is actually David’s daughter!!

Aiden’s got his own reasons for wanting revenge on the Grayson’s as his father was also a victim of their wrath. This whole time he believed that his father placed the bomb on the flight and than committed suicide.Pascal isn’t just Margeoux’s father. No, he played a much bigger role in the takedown of David Clarke. While he didn’t want blood on his hands, he wasn’t just an investor like he told Victoria. He’s actually the man who made Aiden’s father plant the bomb on the aircraft. Aiden and Nolan finally tracked down the reporter, Oliver Chapman, that his father was going to sell the story too. Chapman worked for Pascal and when Mathis sold him the tell-all about planting the bomb on the flight, he gave it to Pascal. When he realized Pascal was involved, he told Mathis to flee town. Yet it was too late. It was soon reported that Mathis committed suicide. Finding Chapman, Aiden learned the truth that his father never knew he was planting a bomb and he never killed himself. He was noble, trying to save his only daughter and he died a hero. Chapman admitted that he would testify and come forward. He was all too willing to help these two shmucks and I say shmucks despite the fact that I do really like Nolan and Aiden. Their brilliant men. Which is why I’m so disappointed that they left their lead at home alone! A man whose been hiding out for years because people are still after him. They just left him! Of Course in the game of life, someone was bound to have followed them– Pascal and he in cold blood shot Chapman. There goes that lead.

Are Pascal and Conrad working together? Sometimes it seems like they are and other times, they seem like sworn enemies. Pascal used a tape from the 90’s which has Conrad talking about the bomb on the flight as blackmail against Conrad. But, after Conrad confronted Aiden at the end, it seems Conrad was the one who tipped off Pascal of Chapman’s whereabouts. Has he been following Aiden this whole time? Has he know that Aiden was Trevor Mathis’s son? Because if so, how have the Grayson’s not connected the David Clarke revenge dots sooner?!?! When I say we have many key-players now in reality we have a lot of people working with and against each other.

The spoilers circulating this show have centered on a death of someone close to Emily in the finale. From the way Conrad talked to Aiden, it seems like if Aiden doesn’t take Conrad’s bait and work with him, Conrad will have him taken out for knowing way too much. I don’t think I’d be to sit through a finale where Aiden gets murdered and I don’t think I want to see Emily go through that as well. It would totally crush her!!! Another possible character that might die in the finale is Nolan. He declared war on Daniel and something tells me Daniel won’t be bullied so easily. He’s shot once before, what’s stopping him now?? Although after seeing Emily and Jack work together this week, I feel like Jack is realizing he has really strong feelings for her. When he told Em’s that he ended things with Margeoux and she asked if he was okay, he said he was and I truly believe that. That’s why I think that Aiden will be targeted and killed in the finale and season 4 will be about Emily trying to continue with her revenge while coping with the loss of her fiancee, steering clear of Victoria now that she knows what she’s up to and exploring her feelings for her childhood friend, Jack.

Other Thoughts

-Sometimes the way the writers portray Nolan’s technological advances makes me laugh. Like when Emily seized Pascals fingerprints and sent them over to Aiden who opened a locked door with a fingerprint through phone…. In what world would that actually happen?

– The way Daniel throws expensive and luxurious cars around makes me want to puke. How much money do you have dude?

– Charlotte’s new love affair with Javier is disturbing. Also, does she even remember Declan?

– I can’t wait to see Javier get royally screwed over for putting his fate into the hands of a Grayson!

Revenge- Two Graves (4×23)

Published

on


And just like that, we close the chapter of Revenge. We say goodbye to Victoria Grayson, David Clarke, Emily Thorne and most importantly Amanda Clarke. Can I say I’m totally content with the ending? Yes and no.

Amanda said, when you embark on the path or revenge, always dig two graves. One for Victoria- may she rest in peace. The other, for Amanda and all the parts of herself she lost along the way. That was metaphorical. The second grave, was for her father, David Clarke, who got a piece of her back that was gone before the revenge. In the end, she gained time to get to know him, but lost him to the cancer. You always lose something while gaining something else.

But let’s reverse a little shall we. We picked up this final episode with Amanda admitting that she was guilty of killing Victoria after finding out Ben had been murdered. She knew the only way to end this once and for all was to get transferred to a maximum security prison and break out with Nolan and Jack’s help.

When Victoria found out Amanda was out of jail, she began taking precautions. But, eventually, her heart got in the way of things. Margaux had set everything up; she got Victoria a passport and a private jet out of town. But, Victoria decided to attend her own funeral where she heard Louise speak fondly of her. She decided she didn’t want her to mourn her death, so she asked Margaux to bring Louise to her. She was obviously really shocked, but agreed to keep Victoria’s secret.

Victoria admitted to putting her mothers body in the explosion, hence the dental records that came back linking the body to Victoria. Before she sacrificed her mothers corpse, she went to visit her in the hospital. I didn’t really get the point of this whole scene and only really figured that Victoria had the same relationship with Emily as her mother had with her. Plus, she’d also failed as a mother with all of her children, but her weakness was that heart of hers, which ultimately got her killed.

When Amanda learned that Victoria used her mother, things were really set in motion. Nolan figured out that Margaux was helping Victoria by hiring hit-woman White Gold. When they realized White Gold was coming for Emily, it was too late. Thankfully, David made the call to 911 and they saved Jack, who did quite the job defending himself from the assailant.

This led Amanda to make the ultimate choice- she was ready to kill Victoria. But how? How would she find out where she was hiding. Louise! After finding out Victoria had played her, she realized that Nolan had been right the whole time; Victoria was a manipulative bitch who didn’t care about anyone but herself. She physically brought Amanda to Victoria’s hiding place and I couldn’t have been more proud. At this point, Victoria knew she was going to die– you could see it in Amanda’s eyes. She was done playing- she knew the only way to end this once and for all was to end Victoria. As she was about to pull the trigger, David shot Victoria. As she lay dying, she used her last breath to pick up a gun and shoot Amanda.

Okay, at this point, I was like holy crap, Amanda cannot die. We’ve come so far. Done so much. Four-years worth of revenging…. They can’t both die at the same time right? Right! Amanda was saved, spent a lot of time with David in his last few months before the cancer took him, reconnected with Charlotte and married Jack.

Sort of perfect ending if you think about it. She got her revenge, she got to know her dad, she got rid of the bitch and she got the boy. Sure, she lost a lot of people along the way and part of herself, but I feel like it was worth it. She knew what she was getting herself into when she started this whole thing. And that’s what’s most important.

Louise finally redeemed herself. Margaux also took the high road, helping Nolan bring down White Gold and turning herself in in honor of Daniel. She wanted to be proud of the person she was and helping Victoria destroyed her soul. It’s funny if you think about it. Victoria thought she had all these minions who seemed faithful but weren’t because eventually, they realized they were fighting for the wrong thing. Amanda was painted as this evil person, but she did everything out of love. Victoria, she did it for self-preservation and she wasn’t afraid to throw anyone under the bus.

As Amanda and Jack jetted off into the sunset, after having a beautiful wedding with Carl as the ring bearer, she had a terrifying dream. At least, I hope it’s a dream. In it, the doctor thanks Charlotte for agreeing to use her mothers heart for a heart transplant to save Amanda. It seems rather ridiculous that they would include this though and maybe, Amanda’s heart really does belong to Victoria now. Maybe in a funny way, she ended up having to save her. And this was Charlotte’s way of getting back at her mother. Or, it’s just a reminder that she’ll never shake Victoria. Either way, we’ll never know and I guess its left up to interpretation.

As for Nolan, I feel like that was also left open for a possible spinoff show. He was so worried about what he would do after revenge since he got so good at it and Amanda made sure to send a guy his way that a. could be a potential love interest and b. needs help getting revenge for his mother. Oh, how things never change.

Were you satisfied with the series finale? Are you happy Amanda and Jack ended up together? Do you wish David Clarke made it through? Are you glad Victoria is finally 5 feet under? You know she never stood a chance against Amanda. I say, I’ll be content with the finale because Amanda, well, she pretty much got everything she wanted and more. I raise my glass to you Ms. Clarke!

Revenge- Plea (4×22)

Published

on


Alright Revengers, are you ready for the end? Next week is the series finale of Revenge and I am completely devastated. While I agree, the show needs to end, I don’t think all of my questions can be answered in one episode. I don’t think the closure I need from this weeks episode can come in 45 minutes! With that being said, lets tackle the biggest moments of this weeks episode…

  •  Louise got smart for one second and figured out that Victoria might be faking her own death. Who knew Louise could consider Victoria as anything but an “angel.” That didn’t last long however because she told Margaux that she found a hoodie similar to the one Ems wore when she allegedly attacked Victoria and the French liar once again fooled Louise into believing bull. Ugh get it together Lou-Lou!
  • After all this time, you’d think I wouldn’t be surprised by Emily’s bold decisions, but I still am. Why did she think switching her ankle monitor was a good idea? I don’t care how good Nolan is at his job, you know she’s going to get caught. You know Ben won’t let up and he’ll come to check on her. She was asking for trouble. If she involved Nolan and Jack in this for years, she could at least accept their help. Although I guess it’s a good thing they didn’t go cause they would end up dead.
  • Charlotte Greyson returned and it was tragic and totally useless. Rehab has done wonders for her yeah. She turned over a new leaf and is “helping” people, but did we really need to see her just to know that she didn’t care if her mom “died” again. She might be the smartest person in the Hamptons knowing her mom is capable of faking her own death just to get ahead.
  • Jack willingly helping Emily, believing her and bringing down Margaux was sweet to see. Thank god he finally came to his senses. And Margaux was key in Emily finding out how Victoria got away with such an elaborate plan. Also, how the hell does Emily know how to get keys in jail and stuff? Her life skills are on a pro level, for real.
  • David only has 6 months to live… give or take since the cancer has spread to his brain. This pissed me off. Emily did all of this just to lose her father to cancer? And without even getting a decent amount of time with him? I call BS!
  • Emily finally told Jack she had feelings for him and it wasn’t all that it should have been. When they kissed the nigh Sammy died, it still felt real. Then Emily fell in love with Aiden and now seeing her “want” Jack seems delusional and totally passionless. Boo.
  • Can you honestly believe Margaux stooped down so low? She was even the one who attacked Victoria just to frame Emily. And she’s using her magazine to expose that truth. It’s so sad since she was actually a pretty legit character before hitching her wagon to Victoria’s.
  • So the bitch isn’t really dead. She’s totally alive. Victoria is alive. We knew that, we speculated, but it was still really shocking seeing her casually walk out of the shower only to come face to face with Ben.
  • Who was in disbelief because this whole time he thought Emily was crazy but she was actually telling the truth. She was the one he should have trusted. Unfortunately, when he finally realized all of that he was stabbed by Courtney Love’s character and died. Oh Ben. He never even saw it coming which makes him a crap cop. But it was still sad. Let’s just say Emily won’t be happy to hear about this and there’s one more person just gone that could have corroborated Emily’s story! So, how will she get out? How will she prove her innocence?

Do you think Emily will die next week? The episode is called Two Graves which links back to the very first quote of the show… When starting Revenge, always dig two graves. Is one for Victoria and one for her? For her dad? For her old identity- Emily Thorne? I’d be super pissed if Emily, Nolan or Jack died… I’d literally take my red sharpie out and start avenging them. But, the promo doesn’t look too promising for either Victoria, Jack or Ems. What do you think? Use this week to mental prepare yourselves!

2. Victoria is alive. I mean, we speculated it would happen, but seeing her casually walk out of the bathroom still stunned us.
