“A revolution begins when the desires of many are addressed by the actions of one.”
Revenge returned this week and things were moving quickly as Victoria was onto Emily, who needed to put Pascal in his place to finish off Conrad. But, things didn’t go as planned. When it comes to the Graysons, you never know how far they’ll go to save their own ass. Well, you do now how far they’ll go… it usually involves pushing people off balconies/rooftops to keep them quiet!
Conrad cornered Aiden in a deserted parking lot and gave him an ultimatum. Either Aiden would take out Pascal by tomorrow, or Conrad would expose him to Pascal. And we all know that Pascal killed his father and than Charlie Chapman. That same fate would have been in the works for Pascal. When Emily got wind of this, she knew it was time for the big move. Aiden kidnapped Pascal outside of his office (in broad daylight in New York.. I also wonder how nobody saw it happen) and took him to a undisclosed location where he was met by an agent from Homeland Security aka Emily. You know, I must admit this plot-line was brilliant and I wish that it continued for more than one episode. If everyone thought Emily had actually been undercover this whole time to expose the Graysons, that would have been awesome! But I’m sure Victoria wouldn’t have bought it. Anyways, Pascal proved to have some cold blood because he would not talk. Not even when Emily threatened his daughter Margeoux. They finally worked out a deal. He would go to the tomorrow night’s gala wearing a wire and would force Conrad to admit to the bombing of flight 194. Emily would in turn, be gracious enough to spare him Victoria. (Or pretend to. I’m sure she’d think of another way to ruin that woman.)
This was a crappy situation to add onto Pascals new engagement with Vicki. Those two sure do move fast! When Pascal came home, he was acting pretty weird so of course, Victoria was onto him. She found the business card in his jacket and called the number, realizing that Pascal was talking to the feds. Believing the worst, she went to tell of her findings to Daniel (probably the worst person you can ever tell anything to) who ran to daddy to tell him that Pascal was trying to incriminate the family. Poor Victoria, she’s had such bad luck with it didn’t even cross her mind that Pascal might have been trying to protect her. With Conrad and Daniel in the know, Victoria basically set Pascal up for death. The two plotted, but Conrad ultimately went with his own deadly plan which involved a rooftop, a helicopter, and his wife’s fiance in the dead with Conrad covered in his blood. Yeah, Emily’s plan backfired because she didn’t foresee just how clever and stupid Victoria is. She also didn’t realize how far Conrad will go to save his ass. He literally pushed Pascal into the engine of the plane and pretended it was an accident.
The fallout from this was pretty dramatic. Victoria was a mess, crying and screaming that Conrad once again stole her future from her. Daniel on the other hand comforted Margeoux, who was just announced as her father’s successor in LaMarshall Co. Thankfully she got that in writing and her father announced it at the gala before his “passing”. ‘How could this happen,’ she thought. Obviously she too thought that Conrad killed him and since Margeoux is a journalist, I’m sure she will be investigating her father’s death thoroughly. Hopefully, she’ll even make the connection to Daniel, especially since he advised her to get her position in the company in writing, ‘just in case.’
The gala wasn’t too successful for Javier. I hate to say I told you so, but Nolan told you so Javi! Nolan wasn’t too pleased that Javi chose to sell him “Clone” app through Daniel and Margeoux and completely rode him out, so he wanted to teach his protege a little lesson. “I told him that the product wasn’t ready,” he told Em’s after the app said that Charlotte’s clone wanted to get high and party. Meanwhile another member of the crowd’s clone said she’d want to go on vacation to a place where her family was massacred years ago. “Is this a sick joke?” she cried. Why yes, yes it is. It’s also a lesson. Shortly after Javier apoligized to Daniel saying he would fix the problem but Daniel wasn’t as nice and pleasant as he was previously. Now that LaMarshall media had bought the prototype, they didn’t need him anymore. Javier was booted from his own brilliant app idea, without even getting to enjoy any of it’s success. Cold. So cold!
Charlotte won’t be too pleased with her brother for this. Or will she even be there to care? After receiving weird letters from someone that seemed like David Clarke, she enlisted Jack’s help to decode them. Nolan traced the postage to a cabin in the woods, which belonged to some guy named Kurt Renner. Clearly never having seen a horror movie, the two decide to check it out and peek around his magazine research of flight 194. Sure, lets totally believe that David Clarke is alive but not even let in the possibility that this psycho obsessed guy might be lurking somewhere in the cabin that you just broke into!!! Seriously guys? Obviously, David Clarke died in front of a bunch of inmates. Or did he? Before leaving the cabin, Jack finds a ring with the carving DC. I’m assuming he recalls seeing that ring on David. He’s clearly thinking that maybe it’s a possibility. Well that super-psycho followed these two back to the Hamptons and kidnapped Charlotte from her nightly stroll on the beach. Also, that look he gave Jack through the window of the bar was freeakky! This isn’t a dude I’d want to mess with. But I can’t help wonder why he was so careless with his kidnap?? He literally didn’t even use any chloroform to shut Charlotte up and make his kidnap easier. He just dragged her hoping to muffle her screams. Clearly an amateur. It does beg the question though… who is he? Is he David Clarke’s son that we didn’t know existed? Charlotte’s brother? Victoria’s next anonymous kid? Does Emily know this man? And finally, is David Clarke alive and is this his messenger? If someone is going to die in the finale, it’s going to be Charlotte amiright? She’s clearly topping that list.
But it was the end that really put into perspective how smart Victoria is. Sitting and reminiscing covered in Pascals blood, she confronts Daniel asking how Conrad knew that Pascal had been in touch with the feds. She obviously doesn’t trust her son anymore and she shouldn’t. He lied straight to her face saying dad has connections in high places. Ummm no Daniel, you told him and assumed he would take care of it in a civilized way. You didn’t think that he’d actually kill Pascal. Now you don’t want anything to do with it. It’s a shame to see Daniel turn into such a Grayson after all. But then Daniel redeemed himself. If the feds were running Pascal, where were they now??? At that moment Victoria realized that it wasn’t the feds, it was Emily Thorne. She strikes again. And sure enough, when she called the number, the line had been disconnected and the rage in Victoria, grew.
Whose ready for the season finale? Only two more episodes left! Revenge has had its ups-and-downs but this season has literally been so good! I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the end, especially when Victoria and Emily finally go head-to-head. Next week though, the Grayson’s put their agenda’s aside to worry about their daughters kidnapping.

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.
