Revenge- Secrecy (3×08)



“Secrecy causes even the simplest truth to seem wondrous, mysterious. It has the power to fuel passion and seduce you into something you’re not.”


Holy Bombshell! I think I’m seeing ghosts! Is Lydia Davis still alive? Wait, didn’t we saw her die. Brace yourselves with me as I go off on a complete tangent and predict the very finale of this mind-blowing show! So, just as Lydia faked her death, maybe Emily’s father did the same! Maybe he’s been trying to contact Emily this whole time, but since she’s so close to the Grayson’s was unable to and she’s been wasting all this time trying to complete a revenge mission for a man that’s alive. Now wouldn’t that be a twist?!

But in reality, Lydia’s return is going to stir up some hot drama as she’s got it out for the Grayson’s and she’s ready to tell all to Margeoux. Lydia’s had a tough life because of the Grayson’s. First she was pushed off the balcony by Victoria’s security guard, but like a cat who has 9 lives, made it out alive. Than she got on an aircraft that apparently crashed and we all assumed she died. Of course, the possibility that she got off with Victoria was always an option, so I don’t know why we’re so surprised.  Did Victoria know she was still alive and kept that ace up her sleeve until she needed her? And right before her ‘tragic death’, Lydia uncovered a picture that had Emily Thorne as Amanda on it working one of Victoria’s parties. Was she able to dig up some of the truth during her time away from the Hamptons?


Emily is persistent. She’s gotten so far that at this point, nothing is going to get in her way. This girl truly has so many schemes and plots up her sleeve, she just keeps surprising. The minute I think she’s backed in a corner and can’t get out, bam, she finds the silver lining. This is especially true in this weeks episode, where she was completely losing Daniel to his ex-Sarah. Their sudden reconnection of feelings might have been pushed on by Victoria’s attempt to break up the couple before the wedding. But, despite Emily’s best efforts to scare Sarah away by making her feel like a home wrecker, true love pervailed. Which is where plan B kicked in beautifully. As Victoria made it her mission to prove to Emily that her man was cheating on her, and he was, Emily pulled out her first sonogram and lured poor old Danny boy right back to the alter. Gotta keep him in check!

vdsdvTruthfully, I do feel bad for Daniel. I think I reiterate this every week, only because Daniel does deserve a sweet and simple girl like Sarah. He does deserve true love and the whole nine yards. He isn’t responsible for Emily’s fathers death, his parents are, so why is he getting punished?  He’s just collateral damage and in time of revenge, Emily has taught us that we aren’t allowed to feel bad. The reason that Daniel will never end up with Sarah is because he’s dedicated his life to being a Grayson man, which means living like one. He has to follow in his fathers footsteps, and despite his boyish declaration of never marrying anyone like his mother, that’s exaclty who he as to marry.


And not to say that Emily is just like Victoria. She’s not. But Daniel has a point, his insticts are feeling the situation out correctly. Emily is just as, if not more, cunniving, manipulative and fake. And no matter how much I hate Victoria, her motherly senses of her son marrying the wrong woman are kind of spot on. The way she approaches the situation is wrong though. No man is going to respect his mother when she tries to expose his fiances secrets and previous marriages during the bridal shower. How disgusting. Thankfully, Emily planted that seed knowing Victoria would use it against her and was able to spin the situation to her advantage.

To be quite honest, Emily doesn’t even need to marry Daniel anymore to complete her revenge on the Grayson’s. Sure, she needs Daniel around to be in the loop, but she has enough on the woman to just pull the trigger. The wedding is just a really good motive and set up to frame a woman who hated her son’s fiance so much, that she shot the poor girl. Badabing badaboom. And it looks like from the promo’s, the wedding will happen, the baby will be lost and Victoria will be arrested! 


Lastly, things are heating up between the men in Emily’s life. Jack hates Aiden, Aiden hates Jack. It’s a story old as time. Two men fighting for one woman. Jack was especially hurt this week after he found out that Aiden was Emily’s boyfriend. He’s also starting to realize that dooms day is getting closer and closer, and when its all over, Emily will be gone for good. What will he live for when this is all over? Obviously  he’s totally in love with her and has been since childhood and as someone who was a Jack and Emily shipper I feel horrible saying this but he doesn’t really know her anymore. He’s also kind of losing some credibility by questioning how much Emily really knows about Aiden. Weird, since I’m sure she knows a lot since he’s the only one whose been there for her the whole time aiding her in her mission for revenge.  But I can’t deny, he does keep things from her, I don’t think intentionally. He just seizes opportunities where they come. He’s a firm believer of not feeling bad for the collateral damage, which in this case is Em’s biological step sis, Charlotte. Charlotte was getting blackmailed for being risky, nude and provacative while in Europe this past summer. (Totally got a kick out of the fact that TMZ wanted Charlotte’s nude pics. Not really believable!) With access to her computer, Aiden was able to buy the murder weapon that Victoria would use to kill Emily on her wedding night. As this date is quickly approaching, I’m honestly getting cold feet for Emily. A lot of pressure here!!!! And now, a three week hiatus. Great…

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.
