“When I was a child my father woke me every morning with the same phrase. Life is a great sunrise.”
Hatred is in the air this week in the Hamptons. The fire between Emily and Daniel cannot even be extinguished at this point, as Emily tries to rid his life of Sarah. We also got a little insight into Vicotria’s past, and meet yet another Grayson to add to the hit list!!
Daniel is happy with Sarah. Sarah is happy with Daniel. That literally kills Emily, as it should. Jack is happy with Margeoux and despite being royally effed over by Conrad and his protege, she still finds a way to be happy with Jack. But with revenge as her single most important thing, Emily cannot be happy with the man of her dreams Aiden, so she stoops down to the level of psychotic or at least pretending to be really crazy in order to keep Daniel. Daniel has every right to live out his life despite Emily’s existence and constant presence in his house. But you can’t win with someone so determined and the only answer is a full on war brewing between the newlyweds. Sometimes, I kind of miss the days where Daniel actually liked Em’s. Mama G doesn’t approve of Daniel’s rendezvous with Sarah because once word gets around that he’s seeing another woman after just getting married to his wife who was shot, it might ruin the families image. Emily can also blow the lid off of the Lydia cover up and expose Daniel if she feels she’s being ‘wronged’. Victoria and Emily really should get along at this point because their identical manipulators of men. Victoria knows exactly what Emily’s doing since she did the same thing to the original Grayson, Conrad’s first wife. “Emily would crush her,” said Victoria referring to Sarah. And crush her she did! But its those fleeting moments where Daniel picked Sarah up and spun her in a circle as they planned their Italian getaway. Those are the happy moments Daniel really deserves.
Unfortunately, happiness is fleeting, especially with Emily’s immediate need to get rid of Sarah in order to complete her “plan” and keep Daniel as her husband so she has access to the Grayson’s and their mansion. She feels she’s losing her grip on him as he doesn’t care what happens, he just wants to be with his love. Emily calls Sarah’s mom, whom Sarah’s been lying to about working and not being able to see the family. Her mom comes to the mansion and see’s Sarah canoodling with Daniel and she’s disappointed that Sarah is so vulnerable and weak that she’s given into Daniel’s charm, even after all he’s put her through. She orders Sarah to leave with her, which was kind of pathetic since Sarah is an adult. But Sarah won’t let Emily win so she fights back and tells her mom to mind her own business. The result? Her mother states that she is no longer her daughter and wishes Emily luck with her home wrecking slut of a daughter. Well played Emily. Still making herself look like the victim, Daniel like the ass and Sarah like the homewrecker. This obviously makes Sarah feel really crappy and as a result, she leaves Daniel admitting that she got caught up in the moment and pretended she was something she isn’t. This leaves a very unhappy Daniel, who takes his frustration out on Emily and admits that the best thing her ever did for the world was sterilize Emily. Harsh dude!!!
And that’s just the beginning of Emily’s drama. She’s also healing from her gunshot wounds, with healing being an understatement as she’s literally ripped her stitches out while sleeping. She calls Nikho to come help her fix them, in very extreme ways. She’s getting back to the old Emily full of hatred and anger inside. That anger only fuels when Nolan tells her that Aiden’s is dating Nikho. I mean, obviously she cares but she’s the one who ended it so why be mad? At this point, she’s lost everyone and being with Aiden made her lose focus from her task at hand, her original mission. What I don’t understand is what happened to her every time she lost consciousness? Was she really swimming? How did she get to Aiden’s place and why??? How did she get to Conrad’s place after passing out on her bed? What did she do with Conrad? They made it seem like he slept with her and she was wearing his pajamas, but I highly doubt Emily would ever allow herself to do that. But why is this happening? Has she been drugged by one of the Grayson’s? Her encounter with Aiden was pretty sad given how much he cares for Em’s and his excitement that they were finally going to start their own life. I’m craving for some Jack and Emily time and hoping that their time isn’t up now that he confessed his love to Margeoux and their planning on moving in together. So many men, only one crazy Emily.
But Aiden’s also dealing with his own Nikho problems. The girl is in love with him and wants to have this great relationship with him, while he aides her in finding out who her father’s killer was. Here’s two things she isn’t clued in on. One, Aiden really loves Emily so she has no chance and two, Aiden actually killed her father Takeda. Nikho isn’t stupid though and when Aiden ditches date night, she ends up studying her father’s files and realizing the murder weapon was one of her father’s blades. A blade that was missing from his house. To get Aiden off Nikho’s trail and I think to mainly get rid of her, Nolan helped Aiden plant a fake lead for her in Russia. While it isn’t the man that killed her father, it is the guy who planted the bomb that killed Declan. Either way, justice is served. All of this would have worked perfectly if Nikho hadn’t found the murder weapon hidden under Aiden’s bed. That might explain why he was always so nervous and twitchy when she mentioned her father and why he didn’t want to help her in her revenge mission. Hey, to be truthful, maybe he found Takeda murdered and took the weapon so police wouldn’t find it? That could be his excuse, even though I feel like he’s going to be in danger with Nikho on his back. He’s going to need Em’s.
One of the better stories of the week was Victoria and Patrick’s storyline, only because it was so distant from the Emily drama. We always see Victoria as this snooty rich woman that manipulated people to become a Grayson and now carries herself like some kid of royalty. Well, now we kind of has some insight as to why and who Patrick’s father really is. Nolan planted the ‘who’s your daddy seed’ in Patrick’s brain, which made him be a little more distant towards mommy dearest, but ultimately an encounter with Jim (who didn’t even recognize his rape victim from long ago) made Victoria finally tell her story. It was kind of scary and sad watching Victoria react to the situation the way she did. She wasn’t graceful or powerful. She was that 15/16 year old girl again who had just gotten raped and was mad at the world. It was refreshing I especially liked that Victoria’s baby daddy was this average joe, something we would never expect from her. Will Patrick ever confront him or start a relationship with him? He was clearly upset after hearing his mom’s story and he has some weird bond/relationship/obsession with her so you never know what he will do out of anger, besides burn the gallery down! But the revelation about Victoria’s past also shows us that Emily and Victoria also have something in common. They both have this bottled up rage deep inside that makes them who they are and do the things they do. Unfortunately, this doesn’t make me like Victoria any more.
I’m so excited to learn about the new “villain”coming to The Hamptons. The O.G (original) Mrs. Grayson. This storyline will definitely take things in a new direction as we learn who she was, what her relationship with Conrad really was, how strong it was and how Victoria got rid of her/replaced her. I despise when my show has so many hiatuses during the season because I have to wait super long to find out what happens next. From the previews we see that Emily has formed a strong alliance with Conrad and that she’s confiding in Aiden again. “I’m going to kill them all,” we hear her say. So I’m guessing the war wages on between spouses! Just let us know how we can help Em’s! Although, death seems like the easy way out doesn’t it? Till March 9 fellow Revengers!
- Emily: When I was a child my father woke me every morning with the same phrase. Life is a great sunrise. The words shaped the way I saw the dawn. But after my father was taken from me, the morning sun burned like fire. That’s when I learned what hatred as and it would great me each morning, for days to come.
- Emily: Many believe there is no such thing as too much love. That its warmth is a comfort that we never tire. But when love turns to obsession it consumes itself. The flame that nourished becomes angry; merciless, an all consuming blaze. Leaving us confused by the chill in the air and the hate left behind.

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.
