After six long weeks (or was it seven? I was so deep in my lack of"Revenge"in my life depression I lost the ability to count), "Revenge" is finally back.
And will be all new until the end of the season (though ABC has conveniently not mentioned when the season is over, but if it is before May 30, let me tell you, there will be trouble)!
This week’s episode was a good catch-up episode — there were no shocking moments, but trying to keep up with who was framing who kept me on the edge of my seat. Everyone is on the lookout for Amanda, who is being hidden from Takeda (ironically, the person everyone should be looking for). Victoria has gone from framing Amanda, to Jack, and is now onto Emily. When she isn’t busy working out Daniel’s defense strategy, ordering hits on her son, accusing her family members of ruining Daniel’s life, and somehow finding time to rekindle a long lost love affair. She may have an evil side, but this woman sure can multi task! (We won’t get into the details about her trips back and forth to Manhattan as if they were to the corner market and not a three and a half hour drive).
And now, superlatives:
The Graysons finally accepting Emily: “That girl just might be grayson material after all.” – Conrad
Silver lining to being engaged to someone with a juvenile record: Jail survival advice
Best choice of the episode: Declan choosing family over Charlotte
Oddest line of the night: “You’re just another puppet in the Grayson family play, and it’s time for your exit” – oh, Charlotte’s teenage angst
Worst decision of the episode: “You may have just sent your brother to jail for life” – Victoria, bullying her emotionally unstable teenager daughter. This will not end well.
Best or worst actor: Nolan talking to Mason Treadwell – whenever he is over dramatic I can’t tell if it is on purpose or not, but it sure is entertaining.
Finally getting use of her college degree: Ashley, holding press conferences, setting up a blog.. she’s a regular PR girl!
Speaking of school: Isn’t Charlotte’s school a boarding school?
It will be interesting to see how things turn out for everyone over the next few weeks — does Jack think that going to Montreal will some how make him look less guilty? How many people will Victoria frame to try to save Daniel? Where exactly is Amanda hiding? And most importantly, how will Emily make this work out in her plan? If the plan is to ruin Victoria, putting the only person in the world Victoria loves in jail for life would seem to be successful, but I don’t think Emily wants Daniel in jail. All of the other suspects (Amanda, Jack) are people Emily cares for, and Daniel appears to be joining this list.
