Two words… but look how much they changed. Demily shippers… we might not get that hook up after all.This weeks Revenge gave us some a look at what David Clarke did while he was “dead” and we’re given some possible new villains that are way scarier than Victoria and Conrad Grayson combined. Let’s dig in.
While I was never really invested in the Daniel and Margaux relationship, I think that’s about to change. Throughout the hour, Daniel was doing everything to help win Margaux’s love and trust back. Eventually, he found the answers at the bottom of the bottle with Emily, who told him that she wasn’t going to listen to his romance problems, especially because he never actually fought for anything. That prompted drunk Daniel to go to Margaux’s work and fight for her. (Anyone else think he’s fighting for the wrong girl? He should be fighting for Emily!) She however isn’t the sleazy, easy, pushover that Daniel is used to dating. She doesn’t want a man just like her father who would constantly screw up and think an “I’m sorry” would fix things. When Daniel pushed more, asking why she wouldn’t give him another chance, she finally let it slip. She’s pregnant! Let that process…. Done? Ok. Now onto the question on everyone’s mind…. is it Daniel’s? I’m not sure what time frame we’re working with here, but there’s a huge possibility it’s Jacks. Right? God. I would absolutely love that.
Onto the drama that followed that big reveal. Isn’t it a weird change that something surrounding Daniel and Margaux would take prevalence over Emily Thorne and her missions? I think it’s because I’m kind of over the David and Emily storyline. Their father-daughter dynamic hasn’t worked out the way I wanted to this season mainly because even after killing Conrad Grayson, there’s still people who want him dead… or alive and captured. Either way, their standing in the way of allowing Em’s and daddy to stand in the sunlight. (Thanks for that one Olivia!)
Emily continues to torture one of the captives in her dungeon of doom, while the police capture the other accomplice, Peter Dunn, who commits suicide before providing any answers. How convenient. Emily seems to think so too. She has reason to believe these guys were thugs for hire, so why would they kill themselves if they weren’t actually committed to the cause? She thinks Dunn didn’t kill himself, he was killed and she thinks its Alvarez, the sheriff in charge that did it. He’s covering up something, not wanting the men to speak and reveal who their actually working for. And as always, she’ll do anything to get information on it… even taking advantage of Ben’s obvious feelings for her. Did anyone else think it was so weird that Emily was drinking beer at a pub? Definitely a far cry from her Hampton’s lifestyle.
Ben thought he got through Emily’s tough revengey exterior, but no. The moment he realized she was just using him for intel and this wasn’t a date, he paid the tab and went on his merry way. I kind of feel bad for this guy, in a “leave Emily alone” kind of way. However, Daniel was dead right when he said Emily would take advantage of any guy who showed interest in her and wore his heart on his sleeve. *She’s a maneater…* As always, I’m totally enjoying these Daniel and Emily moments. Their the most honest and genuine moments on television. The realization that their in turn the same person was brilliant. Emily plays it off, but she’s no better than Daniel. They play the same mean game.
After last weeks attack, everyone is panicking trying to find out who was responsible for trying to hurt David Clarke… again.
Nolan lets Emily’s prisoner go after realizing she lied about letting her revenge go. She was never going to let David handle this by herself. When she found out, she was furious, but Nolan isn’t stupid. He made the guy drink water infused with GPS particles, which allowed him to track every move.
David decides it’s safer if he leaves to find the man responsible for all of his misery and years in captivity… a man named Malcolm Black. He ran an illegal arms operation in a compound in Canada. He forced David into money laundering or he threatened to kill Amanda. Now he wants payback. He’s got evidence of the operation on a USB drive, stored safely into a safe to which Nolan now has the key. This is David’s way of telling Nolan he trusts him again. Nolan accepts the apology and helps David find the man who tried to kidnap him in the hospital room. When he finds him, he sends Malcolm a message.
Victoria finds out David hasn’t been completely honest with her. Alvarez tells her she finds out that they found Conrad’s killer and are trying to link that back to the murder attempt on David. Emily isn’t the only one who thinks Alvarez might be up to something shady. A moment with him alone, sends chills down Victoria’s spine as he warns her that he’d hate for her to be with David at the wrong place at the wrong time. Seemed like a threat. She asks David to run away with her, realizing everyone has turned against her, but David is strong about not wanting to leave his daughter again.
So, Victoria takes matter into her own hands, hiring a PI to get the real story of where David was when he was “dead.” The PI tells her David’s got beef with a dude named Malcolm Black. She decides to throw Emily under the bus when she realizes the man probably just wants money. ( What happened to trying to start a life without lies with David and even becoming the doting stepmother to Emily? The picture of Emily hinting that she is David’s daughter ends up in the hands of Black’s messenger… loud and clear!
And that messenger is none other than Kate, the FBI agent from Washington that’s investigating the murder of David Clarke. I’m kind of disappointed by this, but totally intrigued. I really liked Kate in the beginning. She had such good chemistry with Jack, it’s sad to know most of it was made up because she was trying to get close to who? Emily? David? She’s obviously the person who sent those two hires after David… and with Ben’s help, Emily figures it out. When she goes to apologize to him about their bad “date” she admits she curious to find out about Alvarez and he offers up his advice before getting to the “date” part. Only Alvarez and the feds had access to that room. If it wasn’t Alvarez, it was definitely Kate. At that moment, we see Kate get the picture of Emily from Victoria Grayson right before Jack walks in to bang her before her flight back to Washington. Ah, my eyes! Is it possible that Alvarez and Kate are working together? Definitely the route I’m going with.
Nolan continued to dig into crazy Louise’s locked police file. He got a scoop on her family life, finding out that her father’s drinking death binge, wasn’t actually that. But of course, Louise caught onto Nolan and Margaux’s alliance and played the victim card, making Nolan feel like a crappy friend. Would he really bring her reputation down just to improve his own? This poor guy just cannot figure out who his real friends are. I wouldn’t bet on Louise being one… especially after he finds out what’s actually in her sealed police file. He decided not to continue helping Margaux expose the country-redhead, but that didn’t stop her from sending the initial piece to print. And I for one support that decision. I don’t feel bad for Louise, nor did I fall for her little act at all. Ummm lets not forget the girl who was trying to trick Daniel into a relationship, seeing hallucinations of her mother and trying to lock Margaux in a sauna? She is crazy… end of story.
What did you think of this weeks episode? Is Margaux really pregnant? Is it Jacks baby or Daniels? Will Daniel confide in Emily? Has Emily figured out that Kate is the mole who killed the only witness? Will she save Jack? Whose going to die next week? No one does death like Revenge after all. Also, will we ever find out why Malcolm has been after David all this time? What does he want? And lastly, let’s all take time to appreciate David’s beard-free. People sure do clean up nice for the holidays.

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.
