I’m shocked, satisfied, and disappointed with the season finale of Revenge. In a way, I’m happy that there were all these cliffhangers to leave me pining for the 4th season, but than a part of me is so pist off that the writers did exactly what many of us hoped they wouldn’t ever do!!!!The Resurrection: Although this episode was called execution, I feel like it was more of a resurrection for a main character; David Clarke. Yep, the infamous father of Amanda Clarke isn’t dead after all. Doesn’t it kind of make you think that everything Emily has done in the past 3-years (or whatever the time-span on the show) is just totally irrelevant. All the lives lost either to a terrible tragic death or just to the purpose itself just wasted because all this time, Emily was avenging a death that never really happened!!! It also leaves so many questions that I’m sure the writers will have a twisted way of answering in the Fall. Mainly, who actually knew that David Clarke was alive? Did Nolan know? Was he with-holding information from his bff? Did Victoria know? Conrad? I highly doubt anyone was actually looped in. So, how did David Clarke get away with it? Where has he been hiding? And why did he let Emily literally dedicate her life to this? It’ll also be interesting to see Emily’s reaction when she does find out. She’s been at this goal for so long, but she’s avenging the memory of her father– the man she knew him to be when she was like 8-years-old. He’s clearly not the same man anymore.The Execution- Which brings us to the deaths. We knew someone close to Emily was going to die, which meant it was really between Nolan, Aiden and Jack. Unfortunately, when the episode started, it was totally obvious that Aiden was about to meet his end. They were just way too happy together basking in their revengeful win. Emily just couldn’t let it go (and in some ways, that’s a good thing). She was so dedicated to the cause that even after locking up Conrad, she still needed to go after Victoria. So she sent Aiden in to meet Michelle Banks the therapist who made young Amanda believe that her father was evil and a terrorist. I have to hand it to Victoria for being one step ahead of Emily and being able to read her mind. She made Banks give Aiden some poisonous tea and than she suffocated him with a pillow. With her bare hands!!! This moment was so hard to watch, but while it was the death of one character, it was the beginning of a new story arc for Victoria. If she could kill with her bare hands, what else is she capable of? I always though she was this pawn in Conrad’s game, but she’s not so clean herself. She’s capable of a lot more than I thought. I’ve been underestimating her. There’s death behind the manipulations! What was totally disturbing and questionable was the way she moved his body into Emily’s house. Am I really suppose to believe that fragile woman had all this manpower to move a grown man’s body? Either way, seeing Emily see the love of her life stone cold on her couch was so sad and heartbreaking. And totally creepy!! So, so, creepy! There wasn’t just one death on this season finale. The return of David Clarke happened in a pretty revengey way. The kind of revenge that Emily didn’t have in her. When Conrad was released out of prison by one of the guards he was riding his mighty horse. Little did he know it was a trick because the guard was working with his arch-nemesis, David Clarke. As he walked happy and chipper down the road waiting for his getaway car, he was shocked to see David exit and than stab him. While it totally seemed like Conrad had met his match (I mean the blood spilling out of his lifeless body on the road seemed to do the trick) I doubt that he’s dead. The devil don’t take the evil so easily. My guess is that he will be found by someone, taken to the hospital where he will live to tell the tale of the shocking moment when David Clarke tried to kill him. See what I mean about David being a completely changed man? He’s not the sweet father Emily remembers him to be. Even the hair gives off a different impression. It was all very eerie. And totally disappointing. What’s next? Emily is going to form a super-revenge team with her father at the head?Justice is served- Aiden’s death was the fuel to the fire that Emily needed to continue on her path of revenge. She’s been going through the motions lately, but it all just felt like she wasn’t really certain what she was doing because she didn’t really know who Amanda Clarke was anymore. A memory is only so strong. Losing a father and losing a father are two very different feelings with completely different impacts on the psyche. The loss of a lover, that one true love, is much stronger in my opinion. And it reminded Emily that she really needs to bring the Grayson’s down—without anymore casualties. At this point, they’ve taken away all of her happiness. When she rebuilt it, they just stripped it away further. That’s exactly what Victoria wanted to do seeing as she believed that Emily had taken everything she loved from her when she set up Pascal. Honestly, can women EVER blame the man? With her new found fire, Emily devised a plan to lure Victoria in by asking Charlotte to dig up her fathers grave. She didn’t actually want her to dig it up, but she knew Charlotte would take the bait and spill the bizarre request to her mother. The plan worked like magic. As Emily was digging up fake Amanda’s grave, Victoria confronted her explaining how she knew from the first time she laid eyes on her that Emily was not who she claimed to be. The confrontation got pretty heated before Em’s revealed her plan. She bashed Victoria over the head with a shovel. When she awoke, she was tied down to the bed at a mental facility with Emily sitting by her side. It was perfect. The anger growing within Victoria made her seem down right bat shit crazy. She shouted “She’s Amanda Clarke,” but the doctor didn’t believe her because Emily had manipulated Dr. Banks into playing for her team. She provided the mental health physician with notes from therapy sessions that proved Victoria was obsessed with Emily Thorne and thinking she was Amanda. Literally, best scene ever. When Emily walked out casually slinking her trench-coat on her shoulders, with a sly grin on her face I couldn’t help but cheer her on. You go glen-coco!! Do I think Victoria will stay locked up for long? Definitely not! But for the time being, it’s so rewarding!More Revenge Being Plotted– Margeoux brother Gideon arrived in the States for his fathers funeral and he did not waste any time. Quickly we found out that his visit was thanks to a call from Nolan, who wanted to enact revenge on Daniel and Margeoux for screwing Javier with his new app. Gideon was willing to oblige because his sister had pretty much just screwed him out of the company and nominated Daniel as her second in line. She clearly doesn’t know she’s making deals with the devil. If only she knew that’s what got her father killed! Gideon admits that he never had any interest in the company and is here because he wants to launch his own business. Obviously, that’s a lie. As he sips on Absinthe with Daniel and orders some call girls, he sets Daniel up in some bad business. The call girl overdosed on coke and Gideon did nothing to save her. Instead, he took a picture of Daniel laying next to her and gave the pictures to Nolan. How’s that for getting some dirty stuff on the enemy? I’m not sure if I can vouch for team Gideon at the moment. Letting an innocent girl die is a little distasteful, no matter how much you want something. I’m sure he will play a major role in season 4. After all, if we’re going after the Graysons, we might as well go after all of them right?I Think That She Knows– Speaking of the Grayson’s! While everyone’s dealing with Emily Thorne issues, Charlotte is trying to figure out who kidnapped her. She comes to visit Jack and tells her about her encounter with Emily, who came to her house and gave her the David Clarke ring that she had given him. She’s pretty upset and feels like no one is telling her the truth (which they aren’t.) I mean, her own mom hired some guy in that cabin to send her daughter those twisted notes!!! Jack is so close to telling Charlotte the truth about Emily and Amanda, but instead consoles her by rubbing her shoulder…. in the same way the kidnapper rubbed her shoulder when he set her free. All of the memories of Charlotte’s ride home return to her. Using her sense of touch, she breaks into Jack’s care to make sure that her thoughts are true. And than she tells the detective that Jack might be a suspect. It’s really disappointing to see. Obviously, Jack will get out of it somehow with Emily’s help. But the relationship between these two is forever going to be strained unless Jack starts explaining everything!!! What did you think of the season finale? Was it just a cheap cliffhanger for a show thats running out of storylines? Or did you actually like that David Clarke was still alive? Will Emily be happy to find out that her father is alive? How will Victoria react? And with Aiden gone, will Emily and Jack finally get their happy ending? Sound off in the comments section! We’ll see you in the fall revengers!

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.
