Revenge- Payback (3×14)



Revenge returned after its hiatus this Sunday and things got a little out of control. Victoria faces her rapist, Stevie Grayson reveals an ulterior motive, while Jack learns a shocking family secret and Emily deals with continuous blackouts from her accident. On the plus side… she didn’t actually sleep with Conrad Grayson! Come on guys, how could you actually believe that?


Victoria Grayson learned that her fancy schmancy art shop was burned to the ground only to find Patrick as the culprit. Who did he call for help? Well obviously his father– the one Victoria led him to believe was a monster because he raped her in a basement. Victoria ordered Patrick to seize all communication with him, but Patrick was curious. After they talked a bit, Jimmy explained that he once had a baby boy, but the mother would not let him see the kid. Jimmy than visited the Grayson mansion asking that Victoria helped pick out paint for the remodeling of the burnt down store and in a weird attempt, tried coming onto Victoria. I mean, the guy was a bit creepy but not in the sense Victoria explained it. When she went to confront her son about it, Jimmy just happened to walk in and overhear them talking. He pieced two and two together and realized the powerful Grayson was actually Vicki Harper and that Patrick was his son. When things got a little out of hand, Patrick came to his mothers defense and accidentally killed Jimmy. Maybe the ambulance would have been able to save him, but Victoria saw that moment to utter to Jimmy the same words he spoke to her before he raped her. The police declared Jimmy’s death was an accident. Victoria seemed all to pleased to have gotten away with the murder, but what more can you expect from her? Meanwhile, Patrick was beating himself up over it as he should. This storyline had potential and the writers didn’t do it justice. I wasn’t convinced Jimmy was bad nor good and a couple of Vicktoria’s memories didn’t suffice. This could have been something much better, but now it’s just another storyline I won’t ever remember.

payback 2Emily continued to have blackouts that made her do really questionable things like forge that she conspired with Conrad Grayson to divorce Daniel and enlisted the first Mrs. Grayson, Conrad’s ex-wife, for help in the matter. When Stevie called Emily the next day, she had no recollection of speaking to the woman and when they met up to discuss the matters of the divorce, Emily found out she almost admitted she was in love with Aiden to the enemy. Her blackouts are getting super serious as she’s living with the enemy and blackout Em’s clearly loves to tell the truth. She slips up and her life is completely in danger. But controlling blackout Emily proves to be quite the task as she begins to blackout when Nolan finds her sleeping on her porch swing and she freaks out on him, calling him names. She regains memory when she’s already at Charlotte’s birthday party thrown by Daniel, who’s trying to figure out what his father and his wife are really up to. Emily later finds out that after her blackout when she was talking to Stevie, she went to Aiden’s to try and stop him from going to London by basically throwing herself at him. He pushes her off, but doesn’t ever really make it to London because he’s attacked by a ninja… aka, Nikho!

She found her father’s weapon under Aiden’s bed and plans to avenge her father’s death.  She won’t kill Aiden because she loves him, but she did place a clue to lure in Emily. When she comes to save her ex-bf,  Nikho will kill her and take away someone Aiden loves, just like he took away her father. Well, plans are plans but making them a reality is much harder. When Emily finally comes to Aiden’s aide she takes down Nikho. Aiden pleads Emily not kill her and lets her run away. Turns out that during Emily’s blackout periods, she planted Takeda’s weapon under Aiden’s bed. She’s obviously scared that her blackouts are causing her to hurt the people she cares for and Aiden shows no remorse for the stuff Emily’s going through. It seems rather odd to watch him be so cold to her when just a couple of episodes he would have done anything to save her life. When she finally gets a call from the doctor that reveals her brain swelling is not the cause of her blackouts, Nolan begins to wonder if maybe its genetic. After all, her mother started losing her mind around the age Emily’s at now. Could it possibly be that Emily’s just going crazy?? How will this effect her divorce and her future?

pb4 But the biggest reveal of the night is first lady Grayson! While Conrad might have lured her in for his own selfish benefits, and to get rid of Emily, or help her rid her life of Daniel, whichever one he’s working for, Stevie found other reasons to stay. After meeting Emily at The Stowaway she reveals to Jack that she knew his father. After Jack admits knowing Conrad has caused his life a lot of pain, she decides to cancel her flight back to L.A to stick around and hear the story. When she asks Jack for more information, he politely tells her its none of her business. Well, it is….. because she’s his mother! Say WHAT?!?!? Stevie Grayson is Jack Porter’s mother!??!? How is this possible? Why is this possible? Does that mean she cheated on Conrad? Does he know? Did she leave Conrad for Jack’s father? Why wasn’t she with his the whole time? I’ll admit the reveal was totally day-time soapy and kind of nauseating. I mean, we kind of stretch the lines of fiction when watching Revenge, but do you really want me to believe that almost 30 years ago a poor guy had an affair with a rich woman, had two kids and she left pretending they never existed until now. And why?? Maybe the execution of this plot-line was just soapy. Trust me, I’m fully interested in finding out more, but can’t help to wonder, how many more b.s stories they’ll come up with to keep feeding us cliffhangers!!!

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.
