Revenge- Struggle (3×15)

“I’m going to kill them all.”

The struggle is real as Emily’s blackouts become more violent, Daniel gets suspicious of his wife and Jack doesn’t know if he should believe his new mother.

Mama is in town and she’s got too many dark secrets. Aside from her problem with alcohol, which led to her giving up Jack and coming back thirty years later just to tell him she’s his mother, comes her involvement in the David Clarke trial. Cause anyone remotely associated with the Grayson’s definitely had something to do with it. But what? After Jack confides in Em’s that his mother is Stevie Grayson and she had an alcohol problem, Em’s remembers a passage in her father’s diary that mentioned she came to visit as a lawyer to try to get him freed. She was his little glimmer of hope, but the gin on her breath made him realize the hope was false. Why did she get involved? What did she want? And ***SPOILER ALERT*** what does she want from Em’s next week when she comes to her door asking who she really is??? Putting the baby mama drama aside, sometimes I’m team Aiden, but days like this, I’m so team Jack!!! They could be together, right? He doesn’t have to sell his soul to the devil and move into his new beautiful house with Margeoux right??

Emily’s been fighting with the blackouts, which she doesn’t seem to have under control as she says. It seems that though her real self is trying to hurt the Grayson’s and avenge her father’s death, but her subconscious is trying to sabotage her. Her subconscious is going after all the wrong people; Nolan, Aiden, her father. So, when it seems like she’s about to go off the deep end, Nolan begs for Aiden’s help. If Takeda were still alive, he would be Ems’ only hope, but he’s dead, so Aiden has to step up for his sweetheart. Seeing these two outside of their lovey-dovey relationship is a nice change for once. Aiden has two personalities. There’s the one that cares deeply about Emily and there’s the one that’s over her and pist off that she sold him out. Well, for weeks now we’ve seen the pist off Aiden, which led him to kidnap Emily from Conrad’s hotel room before she committed murder and had blood all over her hands. That’s something she’d never come back from. He ended up using Takeda’s old method of extreme water boarding to make Em’s face her subconscious. What she found? An image of her father, the night before he was killed when she caught him sleeping with Victoria and they fought as she begged him not to trust that evil woman. Her father just kept repeating that she would love Victoria and that they would be a family. Well, her father got her wish, Emily is a Grayson, but Emily has been feeling like all of this is her father’s fault. He’s to blame for her crappy life and her subconscious was lashing out. Aiden helped get Emily on track by reminding her that her father loved her and she needed to clear his name by bringing down the people who actually did this. Ah, it’s good to have Emily back!

But while she lost her way, Daniel picked up on the fact that she’s been sneaking out of the house at random times and he wanted to find up what the hell she was up to. So he hired a PI to follow his wife. Obviously, the PI caught the romantic kiss between Aiden and Emily and brought it back to Emily. So, now it looks like she’s been having an affair with her old beau. ** SPOILER ALERT** Next week, Daniel files for divorce and also possibly exposes Emily to the media by releasing pictures of his cheating wife, which makes her the eye of public scrutiny. As Daniel makes Emily’s life harder, will that motivate her to ruin his life even more? Before, she had no reason to hate Daniel except for the fact that he was Victoria’s son, but now, she’s got her own beef with her husband.

Nolan got pretty cozy with Vicki this week as he helped shoo Patrick out of town. Basically, the whole ‘I killed my father thing’ was really getting to Patrick as he felt super guilty for being a murderer. Victoria faked that she was considering killing Stevie, which made Patrick think of how he’s changed by being around his mother. This wasn’t the life he wanted. Nolan paid off one of the major artist sponsors that came to the gala to hire Patrick, who accepted and immediately moved to Tulsa. Another one bites the dust. Honestly, he never had a promising career in the Hamptons. Except for those chiseled, chiseled abs!

It seems that at this point, everyone in the Hamptons has an agenda of their own. Conrad is no stranger to that as he plotted to send Margeoux to France to bring her father back to Voulez. What does he have in mind for the Frenchman? Charlotte will soon find out as she’s interning at Voulez under her father’s supervision. She’s basically spying, being Daniel’s eye’s and ears for their father. Obviously, Daniel assumes Conrad is conspiring with Emily, which is technically not true anymore!

This week’s episode literally felt like one of the old ones. Back to the basics. My problem recently has been Revenge losing touch with its original premise, and getting to comfy with shockers that can be seen on daytime soap operas, not on primetime television. While that may still be true, at least the back up and explanations are all fitting together nicely and leading back full circle to David Clarke. As they should!!!!

Revenge- Two Graves (4×23)

Published

on


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)

Published

on


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.
