“I’ve lived in a loveless marriage for 25 years. You two will figure it out.”
Emily’s revenge keeps trudging this week, even after we were all convinced she would finally give it up!!! She also ends things with Aiden, finds out she’s unable to have kids, and manipulates Daniel in the most Grayson-esque way possible, all while healing from severe gun shot wounds. What a trooper!
Emily was moved from the hospital to the Grayson manor, or home as Victoria likes to refer to it and thankfully, she was able to take her nurse with her. Obviously we know Niko is working for Aiden, but can we really trust her? She came clean to Emily about who she was (and fyi she’s Takeda’s daughter) but if I were Aiden I’d be cautious. Even after she took Victoria’s money, she pretended to be on Emily’s side. But the jealousy over the praise and love that Emily got from her father was eating her up. That and there’s also the fact that she’s in love with Aiden. She turned green with envy when she found out Emily and Aiden were engaged and he didn’t tell her. Obviously someone like that isn’t going to be too keen on helping. I think when she punched Emily and pushed her to continue on with her revenge plot, she was really trying to secure herself a future with Aiden and get Emily out of the picture. As for her revenge, well it’ll start once she realizes the man she’s sleeping with killed her dad.
And, unfortunately that’s what she did. After regaining her memories post amnesia we saw an Emily that was sick and done with this revenge mission, constantly giving pieces of her life away to the Grayson’s. They’ve literally taken everything away from her; family, friends, love. Fed up, she was just looking for an escape plan to go find Aiden and run away with him, just like it was planned. It was refreshing to see this side of Emily because I feel like thats what she should have done a long time ago. But instead, Emily failed us again. After finding out that she would never be able to have kids again, she fell back down the rabbit hole and succumbed to her need to get revenge. (In all honesty, why does Emily even believe anything that comes out of Victoria’s mouth. She could be lying, but fate has a funny way of dealing with karma. She lied about having a baby, now she can’t have any at all. Too bad karma never gets the Grayson’s.) This time she was even more furious that the Grayson’s had screwed her life over, so she willingly gave up Aiden. I guess its easier this was for her knowing she had control of the situation than later seeing him get taken on hurt. Initially, when Niko told Emily that Victoria and Patrick were planning on getting her Infinity box, she was going to let it happen. Maybe finally spilling her real secrets would set her free. Yet she soon changed her mind and warned Nolan.
This was kind of sad to see and I will admit I was downright nervous. Maybe Emily was suffering from head trauma, but I wasn’t. Admitting who she really was would have been the end of the world as we know it. But, last minute, Nolan switched the contents of the Infinity box with pictures and fake letters and newspaper clippings that revealed that Emily had her eye on becoming a Grayson for quite some time. She played the “I want to marry into money” card. It was also quite depressing to see how Patrick sold out Nolan and tried getting him drunk to steal the box from him. When he found out that Nolan wasn’t actually drinking, he bashed his head in. Clearly, Nolan is always a couple of steps ahead. Patricks need for mommies love is getting a little extreme. I’m all for finding out who your real mom is, but not when she’s clearly proven to be a manipulative crazy bitch.
Emily called a press conference and admitted to the world, or at least the socialites of the Hamptons, that she regained her memories and that Lidia was in fact the person that tried to shoot her. This move was dangerous, but acted out with precision on Emily’s part. I was astonished to see her really get her stuff together and sit down with Victoria and Daniel and admit she knew Daniel shot her. She also forgave him because she really loved him and wanted their marriage to last. Obviously, Daniel is no Conrad so he’s upset, angry, confused and enraged that he was totally played. But Victoria, I think she’s impressed. Emily also seems to have Victoria on her side when it comes to keeping the secrets behind closed doors and the marriage looking happy to the public. If they don’t do as Emily want’s she can recant her statement to the press and admit that Daniel actually shot her. “I’ve lived in a loveless marriage for 25 years. You two will figure it out.” Wise words Victoria, wise words.
If only Daniel was so on board. But he isn’t cause he’s never been one to care about his public image. Its sad, but at the same time I can’t feel sorry for Daniel knowing he shot Emily and he won’t even take the blame for it. He ran to Sarah just in time to give his side of the story and conveniently leave out the part that he shot her. When she asked, he seemed appalled that someone would think that and made it seem like Emily would obviously say he shot her if she found out he was with Sarah. Sarah’s also pretty stupid for believing everything Daniel says. Come on, he’s a Grayson. As much as Daniel really loves Sarah and she loves him, I would love to see Sarah team up with Emily against him. Also, did you see Jack’s punch? Atta boy! Someone finally gave Daniel what he deserved. And it seems to be the only guy with balls on this show.
Jacks been sticking up for Emily a lot since her accident. He even let her see his son. When he found out what Daniel did, he wasn’t about to let it go and he wanted it to become public information, thinking Emily would want that. That’s why he slipped the truth to Margeoux asking her to stop her story about Lydia Davis being the shooter. Margeoux ended up getting her exclusive because of him after Emily admitted it was Lydia. When Jack saw that video though, he finally and I really do mean finally, gave up on Emily. He’s given her so many chances to end this revenging and she still continues. Even after she’s seen how much pain, loss and suffering its brought everyone. What I can’t understand is why she just didn’t out Daniel to the police. She would have let him suffer, looked credible in the publics eyes and broke the Graysons. She doesn’t need to be close to Daniel to do a takedown on Victoria and Conrad. I would think by now she’s got enough ammo. But, if hate is really as strong as love, and it seems like here it is, than I guess Em’s knows what she’s doing.
What do you think? Are you over Emily and her revenge plots? Just like that, in a mere two seconds we lost the possibility of JAck and Emily and Emily and Aiden!! Ah! Is the show becoming to soapy? How do you think Emily will get rid of Sarah?? And what do you think Conrad is up to with Voulez and Margeoux assistant?? Sound off here darlings!

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.
