REFLECTION Who is that girl I see staring straight back at me? Anyone but my mother!

Episode 08 | Aired Nov 25, 2012


Party like it's 2006! Emily meets Aiden for the first time, details about Victoria’s past emerge, and The Stowaway is still being blackmailed. Some things never change.
By Tara Fowler at EW



'm still recovering from Thursday night's food coma, so let's get right to it, Revenge-ers. It's 2006 and Aiden’s sporting a bow tie and a bad Russian accent (see also: an unfortunate mustache). Emily struts up to the bar in a gorgeous LBD and asks for Sergei. Aiden, charmer that he is, mistakes her for an escort and directs her to the VIP area where we meet… Ashley! We knew Emily had met Ashley before the saga of the Hamptons, but who could have predicted that our posh girl was working as a, well, working girl? Ashley’s having second thoughts about offering herself up to a shady Russian character known as Dmitri, but thankfully (it is Thanksgiving after all!) Emily’s to the rescue! She trades places with Ashley, agreeing to sub (or do I mean dom?) for her.

ROYAL PAINS Daniel makes a move against Conrad, proving he’s just a chip off the old Grayson block.

Episode 07 | Aired Nov 11, 2012

Emily shares her secret, Victoria and Conrad are positively cuddly, and a certain Hamptonite goes to jail
By Tara Fowler


Revenge got really artsy with the opening this week, didn’t it? The fish-eye view of Victoria in bed, the creepy slo-mo of Conrad nearly shaving half his face off (that was a lot of blood), Kara crumpling the newspaper in wounded frustration -- all watched by Emily on high like some sort of god (or producer of The Truman Show). I guess that makes the title of this episode, “Penance,” particularly fitting, given the religious connotations of the word. And yet, for our protagonist, we didn't see penance so much as a deal with the devil. Emily sold her soul this week. Now it’s just a matter of when she pays up.

After the artsy intro, Emily gets a visit from Mason. I knew he couldn’t have figured out exactly what Amanda and Emily’s connection was, but the two as lesbian lovers? That doesn’t even seem like much of a scandal to me. Granted, I’m not tangling with one of the richest families in the Hamptons, but it’s the 21st century! Surely we could...

FIFTY SHADES OF GRAYSON Why yes, my wedding dress does match my name! How kind of you to notice.

Episode 06 | Aired Nov 4, 2012

Jack proposes to Amanda, Victoria and Conrad get hitched, and Emily proves that revenge is, in fact, a dish best served cold
By Tara Fowler


As the great songstress Natalie Imbruglia once said, “Illusion never changed into something real.” Words to live by, if this week’s episode of Revenge -- the aptly titled “Illusion” -- is any indication. Indeed, if their was any lesson to be gleaned from last night, it’s that an illusion can never stand in for the real thing. Faux-manda can’t be real Amanda, for Mason or for Jack; Victoria can’t be happy with Conrad; and Daniel can’t replace Emily with Ashley. But above all, it’s Emily who won’t be able to keep her various illusions for long. Her house of cards is falling down around her. To the recap!

Wow, that wedding came along quickly, huh? Only the Graysons could possibly organize a wedding, however casual the affair (for Hamptons’ royalty, that is), in about a week. Instead of a good ol’ flashback or flashforward, “Illusion” opens on Victoria Grayson prepping and primping for her re-wedding to Conrad. Elsewhere --...

WHY CAN'T WE BE FRIENDS After all, you only had an affair with my husband and pushed my fake daughter over a railing.


Episode 05 | Aired Oct 28, 2012

Kara bonds with Victoria, Padma puts Nolcorp in a compromising position, and a certain journalist makes his move against Amanda and Emily
By Tara Fowler


Before I start this week’s recap, I just have to ask: is there anyone else who finds Kara Clarke’s voice kind of… annoying? It’s too breathy. I feel as though we’re supposed to sympathize with her -- as the title of last night’s episode “Forgiveness” would imply -- and yet I find it hard to do so. Then again, maybe that breathy voice is part of her game. After all, we’ve seen the steely core that lurks beneath Kara’s seemingly benign demeanor (or at least Aiden did -- he recovered pretty fast from severing his bonds with that broken glass, didn’t he?), but no one else really has. Victoria may suspect, but does she really know? And the real question: what’s Kara’s end game? What does she have to gain from just turning up like that? It doesn’t seem as though she’s got a plan in mind, but this is Revenge. People are always scheming.

MISS CONGENIALITY She's beauty and she's grace... And a killer?


Episode 04 | Aired Oct 21, 2012

Nolan gets a girlfriend, Victoria throws a baby shower, and someone ends up in the hospital
By Tara Fowler


I have a confession to make Revenge fans. Until last night, I hadn’t been too sure how I felt about this season. It just doesn’t seem as deliciously… soapy as the first one. Emily’s search for her mother had made her over-emotional (with good reason, I suppose). She’d been behaving irrationally -- Letting the assassin into her house? That was just plain stupid! -- and it had started to get on my nerves. But then came “Intuition.” I loved this episode so much, you guys. Did Emily pull her act together? No, not really. But so much happened! The show seemed to be treading the same path for the past few episodes, but with the return of Kara Clarke -- and that juicy reveal at the end -- I see potential for Revenge to become a whole new show. But enough about me! Let’s get to the recap, then talk theories at the end.

NAME GAME JFK once said: "Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names." Unless you don't know them in the first place, that is.

Episode 03 | Aired Oct 14, 2012

The Graysons enjoy "pain du mis," we learn more about Emily and Aiden's past, and the white-haired man gets a name!
By Tara Fowler at EW


"In a race between danger and indecision, the difference between life and death comes down to confidence. Faith in our abilities, certainty in ourselves and the trust we put in others." Those were the opening lines of this week's Revenge. And yet, for all of her preaching, Emily didn't seem all that confident. Now that the possibility of finding her mother is within reach, she seems to be losing her grip.

"Confidence" opens with Aiden and Emily racing through a maze worthy of The Shining. And just what are they running for their lives from? Really adorable dogs. (Were there no German Shepherds available?) They climb up and over the edge of a wall out of the maze where Takeda is waiting. Emily’s in the lead, but then Aiden stumbles, claiming he has a broken ankle. Ems goes all Harry Potter on him and tries to help him up, but unlike Cedric Diggory, Aiden isn’t really injured and he darts past her to capture the flag. Takeda commends this...

PHONING IT IN Emily's two steps ahead of her enemies... Or is she?

Episode 02 | Aired Oct 7, 2012

The Graysons expect Charlotte's inheritance to solve all their problems; Nolan gets audited
By Tara Fowler


Tonight's episode of Revenge was called "Resurrection," but what we really witnessed was a death. Emily's sinking deeper and deeper into her scheming and her plots, and she's losing herself in the process. I can only hope that a resurrection will follow, that we will see her come out of this darkness eventually, but for now we can only stand by while she self-destructs.

"Resurrection" kicks off with Young Emily on a road trip with her mother, while our Emily narrates via voice-over. Mom’s having a grand ol’ time, but Young Emily isn’t feeling it. She gives her mom a long stare and asks where Dad is. (Side note: Isn’t it adorable that the young actress has got Emily VanCamp’s cold stare down to pat?) Mom sidesteps the question and says that they’re on vacation. Young Emily laughs and just when everything seems relaxed, her mother morphs into Victoria and says, “Before you can rise from the dead, you have to spend a few days in hell.” Resurrection, it seems, is not...

Okay, so these five are my absolute favorite Revenge characters.

1) Emily Thorne, Formally known as Amanda. Obviously, she's the reason we watch the show. She has the Death Glare down to an art, she carries off a sundress like a boss, and she has fabulous hair. Oh, plus, she likes to dramatically X things out with a red marker...Like a boss. (sorry, overuse of popular terms here. Can't help it :D)

2) Nolan Ross, also Like a Boss. He is the other reason I watch the show. Seriously, without Nolan, where would we be? Or, worse, a Not Awesome version of Nolan. That would kill me. UGH.

3) Jack Porter, the sweetest guy one earth, as Declan so eloquently and much more platonic ally points out in the latest episode, Scandal.
He will do ANYTHING for people he loves, and it's beautiful.
Also, he's hot. Mega-hot.
BTW, I ship Jolan, in case you wondered. I know you didn't, but I have to say that every time I mention Jack. It makes me happy :D
