The title says it all. Sometimes blood is spilled, but sometimes blood is the only thing binding us together. No matter what happens and how bad things get, you have to support your family because their blood.
This week we saw the return of Mason Treadwell— the sneaky cat! A cat that has like nine lives! The last time we saw Mason Treadwell he was confessing to murder– a murder he didn’t commit. That’s what happens when you make deals with the devil, er, Emily. But I can’t say prison did him wrong because he’s looking dapper as ever and up to his devious ways of blackmailing and getting exactly what he wants. Victoria paid him a little visit in jail, a very professional visit; she was interested in getting the inside scoop on what Emily Thorne has really been up to this whole time. Obviously Mason isn’t going to talk without some guarantee that he’ll be well rewarded for his information, but who can make the better offer? Victoria or Emily? He calls Emily to let her know that Vicky’s been snooping around asking about a certain Clarke girl. Emily gets her warriors on it since she’s out of town dealing with Aiden matters. Victoria promised to get Mason out of jail within a month and he accepted the offer over Emily’s. Obviously Emily can’t let that happen because if Mason talks, he blows her whole cover and she doesn’t get her revenge. Instead, she put some insane Japanese flower power into a cream that Mason puts on his face nightly, causing him to choke up and die… Or rather imitate death for 8 hours. Score for him!!! He ressurects from the dead to find himself outside of prison gates, with Nolan as his coroner handing him a ticket on his private jet to a secluded island where he’ll hide out until Emily gets her revenge and gives him the tell all for his book.
After last weeks reveal that Aiden’s father was killed after planting the bomb on the flight that killed David Clarke, Emily wanted to know more. But after Aiden started having night terrors remembering the day he found his father dead in their ‘boys only’ shed, she figured it was time to go visit his mom. Maybe Mrs. Mathis has some answers as to how his father and Pascal are connected. After all, she can’t just ask Pascal as he’s sealed his alliance with Victoria with a kiss… or more. Those damn French men. As it turns out, Aiden’s mom didn’t know much that would help these two find the connection to Pascal, but the trip wasn’t a complete waste. Aiden was able to get some closure a reconnect with his mother, explaining that his father wasn’t a terrorist murderer but instead planted the bomb only to save Colleen. His mother was revealed to finally find out the truth about her husband and Colleen, even though the ending was pretty tragic. There was also another positive outcome of the mini-getaway; Aiden and Emily hooked up finally realizing just how much these two actually need each other. After thinking a lead they found written on his fathers work desk was a no-go since the journalist apparently committed suicide, their fate was restored after Mason hiccuped that the death was a fake out. Maybe there’s still a chance at finding the connection after all!
Drama is really heating up between Pascal and Conrad, who despite seeming like they were going to be partners really aren’t. But things are even hotter between Jack and Margeoux. Trouble in paradise by the name of Daniel Grayson. Ever since he planted the idea in Margeoux’s head that Jack was in love with Emily, she’s been a little more distant and leaning on Daniel a little bit more. I guess that was his plan all along. His little grin everytime he passes Jack says it. But, is Daniel really into Margeoux? Probably not. He just steered her and Pascal in the right direction. Instead of handing over his business empire to his lame son Giddeon upon retirement, Daniel assured that it would be handed over to Margeoux therefore reserving himself a really promising future. Margeoux explained that she didn’t like jealous men when Jack confronted her about her closeness with Daniel, which is odd considering it was ok for her to be super jealous of him and what she thought she saw. In all honesty, Jack had every right to be supsicious. When something went wrong with her father, she confided in Daniel instead of her bf. When she finally got her father’s long awaited approval, she celebrate with Daniel, not her bf. I mean, why’s she even in this relationship?
Jack on the other hand spent the night moving into his new house, helping Emily and helping Stevie get out of town. While trying to help Emily, Stevie found herself in way too deep and finally relapsed downing a bottle of vodka that Victoria brought for her. The Hampton’s are just way too much to handle when you don’t have strong will. Can’t blame the woman, she thought Mason was killed after she went to see him. Jack promised he’d get her out of this town and back to safe haven, California and she wanted him to go with her. To start over and not meddle in the takedown of the Graysons, but Jack assured he had to come back and help Emily finished. What Stevie said after that made him really thing. “Maybe Daniel’s right, maybe you are in love with Emily.” Well, duh!!! He has been since childhood, especially because Emily is really Amanda! I don’t think Jack realized how much he loved Emily until that statement. Funny how life works though. The minute he realized his love, Emily was sharing a bed with her beau Aiden.
And if things weren’t complicated enough for Jack and Emily, there’s a new enemy to add to the list; Charlotte Grayson. After being a devoted Jack fan for so long, she’s finally been swayed by her brother’s lies. Mainly because she walked in on Jack talking to Emily and saying he wouldn’t let anyone take her down. Obviously a suspicious phone call. Maybe Daniel is right, Charlotte thought. Maybe Jack is really helping Emily try to break the Grayson family. And god forbid he try to break a family that’s so put together….. NOT! But it wasn’t just Daniel who turned Charlotte against Jack, it was also Nolan’s new jail buddy roommate and Charlotte’s new lover… (gross). Honestly, why Nolan is so trusting of these various men in his life, I’m not sure. Nothing good ever happens of it.

Revenge- Two Graves (4×23)
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)
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.
