Warning: I need to rant! Revenge is so good, but so annoying at the same time that I can’t even handle it. I’m screaming at my TV week after week like a lunatic. I’m convinced my neighbors think I’ve lost it. But you know whose really lost it? Emily! Emily fricken Thorne has lost it! I don’t get how one can avenge their fathers death, kill everyone whose wronged him and do everything to clear his name. Then when she finally finds out he’s actually alive, she lets him believe that she’s dead?! You let the woman that has been trying to destroy you, get close to him? Okay, to be fair, Emily was caught off guard by Victoria’s plan and by the time she caught on to what was going on, everyone knew David was alive and he was blocked by police and a whole police and a media frenzy. But eventually she succeeded in getting her father to a place where she could waltz over and have the reunion she’s always been waiting for… so what does she do? She decided to wait! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Okay… lets rewind and start from the top!
The episode kicks off with David and Victoria in D.C. The wicked witch hasn’t left his side, accompanying him to talk to the FBI and taking him to visit Amanda’s grave. She assumed she had David wrapped around her finger and that taking him to his daughters resting place would allow him to come to terms with her death. Instead, David had even more questions and vowed to find out what really happened to his daughter. All the stories he was hearing about Amanda just weren’t adding up. I knew David was smarter than he was letting on.
Emily was watching her fathers every move on TV and reeling with disgust at how Victoria could have possible played her. She needed to find a way to get to him, talk to him and remind him of his real family. And well, to tell him that she was actually still alive. With police following his every move, she needed a way in and she thought Charlotte might be the answer. Oh how wrong she was! Charlotte really is her mothers daughter. Instead of helping Emily, her sister who just wants to reunite with her father and tell him the truth, she led her upstairs to meet with Victoria, while she took David to meet Jack. The confrontation between Emily and Victoria was redundant and useless. It’s the same thing over and over with these two.. Victoria smiles psychotically thinking she’s won the battle, while Emily keeps her poker face and informs Victoria she will ruin her. Great ladies. Let’s move on.
The real confrontation happened when Jack came face-to-face with David, a man he’s been avoiding because well, he doesn’t want to lie to him and tell him that Carl is his nephew, when he really isn’t. Confronted by David, Jack didn’t have it in him to come clean.. to rat Emily out. Instead, he played along allowing David to meet Carl and look at wedding pictures of Amanda. It’s important to note though that David didn’t see Carl’s resemblance to Amanda, nor did he recognize her in pictures. That’s a fathers instinct at work right there.
David’s next stop– Nolan’s crib. He asked the man he trusted before he went to prison, if he gave his daughter the infinity box and money. Nolan said he did and David wondered why the hell his daughter was living in a bar with her husband and son. Nolan also can’t bring himself to the tell David the truth either. He informs him that he needs to take everything he hears about Amanda with a grain of salt. Especially the information coming from the people he “trusts.” David hugs Nolan and tells him that with each passing day, he loses sight of Amanda, forgets how she look and that really scares him.
Nolan sees David’s fear as an opportunity. David still cares about Amanda and wants to find out what really happened to his daughter. Amanda still has a chance of coming clean to her father, but in order to do that, she has to get him away from Victoria. Emily hatches a plan! Yay, our level-headed plotter is back!! She goes to visit Margeoux, apologizes for their encounter earlier, and offers her a proposal– the deed to her house. She explains that she wants to do something sweet for David, since he was her friend Amanda’s father. She knows Victoria won’t ever allow her to get near him, so she wants Margeoux to do it for her and take all the credit. It’s a win-win for both of them. Emily gets what she wants and Margeoux gets an exclusive. The frenchy goes to Daniel with the business proposition, which wasn’t part of Emily’s plan. Daniel brings the deed over to David, offering it as a peace offering and apologizes for all his father did to him. David cannot even contain his excitement. He can finally go back home! Victoria isn’t pleased however and she’s even more upset when they arrive to the house and Daniel brings Margeoux and her camera-crew for an exclusive with David.
While Daniel and Margeoux come out on top at the end, it comes with a price. Daniel finally succumbs to Louise’s flirting, which is predictable of Daniel. He then closes himself off to Margeoux, but she won’t let him push her away. After they execute this perfect plan scoring David for the magazine and sticking it to Victoria, Daniel realizes the he and Margeoux are perfect for each other. He tells Louise that he lied to her about being single and that he doesn’t want to sleep with her anymore. She can either give him a second chance, or they can end their business arrangement right there. She obviously says she’s going to stick with Daniel because she has some serious issues and really wants to be a Grayson. She leaves his place and when the elevator doors close, she begins punching the wall. He plan of getting Daniel to fall in love with her and make her a Grayson has failed. After she flips out for a bit, she changes right back to the happy southern girl and calls the tabloid to leak the story of Daniel’s affair with his business partner. This girl must be bipolar or something. This reveal will eventually cause a rift between Margeoux and Daniel and definitely ruin his limited credibility even more. Sorry Daniel, even though you eventually did the right thing, you still messed up and that’s something you can’t take back. Lesson learned. Wherever Daniel goes, scandal is sure to follow
The other Grayson is also struggling with life.. which is nothing new nothing new. Jack pays Charlotte to confront her about the little stint with David. He find her completely drunk at like 10 am and sticks it to her that while she tries to be like Victoria, she’s actually more like Conrad. This upsets Charlotte and she tries to slap Jack, but he stops her, exclaiming it’s no wonder she’s drowning her sorrows in booze– she can’t even live with herself! Honestly, someone had to tell her she’s being a waste of space. At the end of the episode, Charlotte falls even deeper, leaving a club with some random guy, so intoxicated she can barely stand on her own two feet. The guy offers to go back to his place where he’s good some good weed and obviously, Charlotte agrees. Party with a Grayson… no a Clarke! I have a strong feeling Charlotte is about to be kidnapped again. The man she’s leaving the club with has a crescent moon tattoo on his hand, the same one we saw on the driver that tried to kill David Clarke. Who is this he? Why is he out for David? Does this mean Conrad is still alive and kicking somewhere? Oh god I hope! Imagine the scandal!
And speaking of Conrad… god, even after death he’s still the talk of the town. Ben, Jack’s new and totally shady partner, stole files from Conrad’s murder after he got suspicious that maybe Jack was the one to take out the powerful Grayson. After looking into it however, he realized that Jack had a legit alibi– he was with the police chief at the time he was killed. They also excluded Jack from Charlotte’s kidnapping because to pull of something like that, one would need a lot of money, which we all know he doesn’t have. With that in mind, I think Ben is going to go after Emily. Can someone just get rid of this dude once and for all? You can’t screw people of power over without being on the inside and knowing all the facts.
Victoria is forced to come to an agreement with Margeoux to pay off her debt– she gives her all the rights to David Clarke’s story, granted she can read them before they hit the press. She also leaves David to spend some time alone in the house, which is exactly what Emily wanted. As he walks around remembering good and bad memories with his daughter, he finds the inspiration he needed. He puts on a CD, blasting a song he used to dance with his daughter to. Emily hears it all the way at Grayson manor and smiles, knowing she gave her father the much needed memory jolt. She tells Nolan and Jack she’s going to wait about telling him the truth until he’s ready and not in such a fragile state. David however, realizes that he needs to avenge his daughters death. Oh like daughter, like father. He knows his daughter was wronged by the same people he was. He knows deep down inside that Victoria is responsible for Amanda’s demise… probably thinking that she and Conrad are the reason Amanda is dead. And their actions need repercussions! God, I hope they include a red marker for old times sake! I miss vengeful, black-hooded Ems, but it’ll be nice to see someone else fighting for her for a change! David is going to tear the Hampton’s up using the same skill, precision, motive and love as his daughter. And when he finds out his daughter is alive and the two join forces, they’ll be unstoppable. Long live the Clarkes! To infinity and beyond!

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.
