Have you guys been going all crazy waiting for this moment, since last week’s epic, amazing, hella fun recap?! Lol, so have I! And you should have seen the look on my face when my two year-old who I love and respect as a human being totally shoved the cable card into the box and made it IMPOSSIBLE for me to watch this episode at home, lmao! Luckily we have family just around the corner and I was able to watch and get my oh hell nawl on. So get inside! We have some serious recapping to do.
For those of you (i.e. PITNBRS miguel and Patrick) who were dying to see more of the new guy AKA Aiden, AKA the ninja dude, you got your wish! We finally got a little back story on him (and his relationship with ‘Emily‘), which helped clear up a lot of questions from the last episode. Remember he saved her life and we kinda didn’t know why? Well now we do. He loves her. Surprise, surprise! Declan, as we suspected is getting all caught up in some bullshizz; this kid just refuses to stay outta trouble! Why? Whyyy?! I’m not even gonna give him an oh hell nawl for breaking into that house, because we saw this ish coming from a mile away– after he started ‘holding’ jewelry for that kid in the last episode. Ridic.
Dumbass Declan (who’s still really cute)
And some awkwardness was in the air between ‘Amanda‘ and Jack, as they started making baby plans (still cannot believe these two are doing this). But a lot of the major drama, naturally, centered on the Graysons who just won’t die, lmao! Victoria‘s back with a vengeance and she set up a crazy press day to explain her ‘kidnapping’ to the world, but that didn’t exactly go as planned. We also, finally got to see more of ‘Emily‘s mom (who was, apparently, getting it on and poppin’ with the white-haired man) which was kind of insane. So yeah, in typical Revenge fashion, ish got cray. Here are some of my fave moments from last night’s episode!
Top 5 ‘Oh Hell Nawl’ Moments From ABC’s Revenge, Season 2, Episode 3: Confidence
1. Aiden Remains Sexy, Even As He Faces Death By Dumpster Truck
So after Aiden saves ‘Emily‘, did she seriously knock his ass out with a wine bottle and throw him in a dumpster? Of course she did. She is so out of control! We don’t know exactly what Aiden‘s intentions are, but it does seem like he’s really trying to keep this girl on track (with her revenge-ing), which is why he’s intervening. But they have so much history, from what we’re seeing of the flashbacks, you can tell Emily wants no parts in him being around. How ’bout those flashbacks, though?
So she does what any normal girl would do. She effs him up all over the place and gets him a one-way ticket to Japan, after throwing him in a dumpster! Nice.
2. The Part Where You’re All Like, ‘Emily‘ Really Is Kinda The Worst Right Now.
So pregnant ‘Amanda,’ as we know, is desperate to just live her life (phony, though it be) with Jack‘s sexy, do-gooding amazingness but it’s just not going down like that for her. After Jack specifically forbids her to associate closely with the Graysons (even though Charlotte is her half-sister… sort of), ‘Emily‘ basically forces her to get involved in the big press day so she can continue on her wild path towards revenge (now we know why ‘Emily‘ lied about the paternity test– so she could always blackmail ‘Amanda‘ into doing something). By the end of the episode ‘Amanda‘ gets dumped by Jack and it kinda sucks. As I said before, I love that Revenge makes us question ‘Emily‘ even though we ultimately love and support her. And even though we kinda feel bad for ‘Amanda‘ we can’t forget that much of the reason Jack is in love with her (or thinks he is… or was) is because he thinks she’s the Amanda he grew up with. So she’s on that grimey ish too.
Still, you can’t help but be all like, damn! ‘Emily‘ is really not gonna let ‘Amanda‘ just be happy with her one dude! ‘Emily’ has ALL the dudes, can’t ‘Amanda’ get ONE? No seriously, ‘Emily‘ has alllll the dudes:
3. Nolan Gets Jacked Up… Again (All For The Lurve Of ‘Em‘)
How effing awkward were all the interactions between Nolan‘s newbie, Padma and ‘Emily‘??? First of all, Nolan didn’t even know how to introduce ‘Emily‘: Padma, this is Emily, my… uh Emily. LMAO. Poor Padma.
Then he was all off in the corner on the phone and Padma was like wait, I thought we were going to dinner but no… it was awful! And after all that, crazy sexy ninja Aiden jacks him up when he gets to ‘Emily’s house! Nolan really has it bad… and you kinda start to wonder if he isn’t a lil’ bit obsessed with ‘Emily‘ in his own way.
4. Yooo, There Are Way Too Many Shady People On This Stage Right Now
I know Daniel had to go onstage and kind of act like he was playing along with his mother’s game, and I know everyone else did too… but howCrAzY did it make you feel to see everyone up on that stage with Victoria?!?! Aggghhhh, this woman! I really worry that this is just her world and ‘Emily‘ and everyone else (including us) is just living in it, lol. Oh, and I love when she was talking to the reporter (before Charlotte blew her cover and ratted her out about Daniel Clarke), and she was all like, oh I made it out because I wanted to be with my children: Call it a mother’s will to survive. LMAO. She is the absolute worst. Love her. And I loved Conrad‘s subsequent marriage proposal/threat… although it kinda works in an interesting way with PITNBR JCZ‘s theory about how the two could, possibly, re-fall for each other.
5. That Awkward Moment When ‘Emily‘ Realizes She Kinda Got Her Mom’s Boyfriend Killed
There’s not a lot to say about this. I mean, this moment just sucked. Now ‘Emily‘ is seeing that her actions are having some seriously effed up consequences. But… something tells me she’s not ready to change her approach here. After all, this is Revenge!
Okay, so what’d everyone think of episode three? The only thing I kinda missed was Ashley. I know she’s a little schemer, but I just lurve to look at her, lol!
p.s. miguel, saw this and thought of you:
