I’m not sure, but I think last night’s episode of Revenge was one of my favorites. Ish really and truly started to hit the fan… and it was awesome! Between the drama that popped off on Scandal, and the madness that took place last night, I’m kinda glad we have to wait two weeks for the next episode of Revenge. I’m exhausted! Plus that preview for their Thanksgiving episode looked all kinds of cray, lol. Click inside for more!
Now, honestly? One of the biggest oh hell nawl moments for me came from those damn Neiman Marcus/Target/Revenge ads. I was sooo confused (and a little annoyed) with those, lmao. I mean, don’t get me wrong– those boxes were sexy as hell, but it was just weird, right?
Anyway, on the last recap, a few of you noted that our girl ‘Emily’ appears to have a freezer full of bodies and– yeah– I’m concerned, lol! But I loved this episode because we were reminded of the fact that ‘Emily’ may be crazy, but at least she’s got control… Fauxmanda went buck wild! I loved it! She recklessly took control of the Mason Treadwell situation, as she started to feel like ‘Emily’ and her very organized, very patient style of revenge was getting old. We also got to see ‘Emily’s mom Kara get cray-cray on the Graysons, which was just super fun to watch. Victoria and Conrad need to be on their knees and blindfolded more often, lol. And speaking of the Graysons, our Danny-boy is getting hella ruthless!
I cannot believe he seriously has no problem snatching the company right out from under his pops! And I can’t tell if it’s because he’s just becoming more Grayson-like (and, therefore, greedy as hell) or if it’s because he can’t stand his family and wants the company to become his, so that he can have the upper hand. Either way, his arrangement with Aiden is about to go a really interesting route, now that we know Aiden is really working with ‘Emily’ and Nolan (who was as awesome as usual, this episode) to screw all the Graysons over, including Daniel.
There’s weird stuff popping off at Jack’s bar, because that sketchy guy now has a sketchy brother who seems to be out for his own revenge against Jack and Declan’s deceased father. I have no idea what’s going on there, and– as of right now– I’m not crazy interested either.
This episode also brought us the amazingness of another ‘Emily’/Aiden make out session, but c’mon y’all. Let’s get on with this, lol!
No, seriously. I’m tryna see what Aiden’s twerkin’ with. In my head he’s got abs like Shaun T, the Insanity guy… lol. Okay. Enough fantasizing. Let’s get to it!
1. Mason Is Officially The Man Who Knows Entirely Too Much
Oh, Mason. You and that damn idea bored, lol. SUCH a bad idea! Now when he rolled up on ‘Emily’ and started accusing her of being ‘Amanda’s lover, I was actually kinda impressed. I mean, aside from the lesbian bit, he pretty much had it all right. They met in juvey. Started a relationship. And then teamed up to do Revenge-y things. And now Mason and his little board have to die, lol! But I loved seeing Mason pull all of this together because I’d been wondering when someone was gonna start to investigate their relationship and the ‘coincidence’ that they met in juvey. ‘Emily’ is good, but she can’t cover alll her tracks and Mason’s kind of taken on the role Victoria Grayson during the first season (when ‘Emily’ and Daniel were dating), by pulling some of her stories apart. Even though a lot of you (hi Joan) hate Mason, I think his return has brought some of the best drama on Revenge.
2. Nolan Gets Angry… Like, Really Angry
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: poor Nolan. Aiden’s been running around putting his company on the line, and then has the nerve to show up at his office (sitting in his desk!!!) asking him for that David Clarke check. I’m honestly confused as to how all this is supposed to work out for Nolan in the end– ’cause it really sounds like that check is gonna be the end of him. But this scene was so fun because of that groan/roar that Nolan let out when he realized he was gonna have to hand that check over (to save ‘Emily,’ although I’m still not fully sure about what that means). LMAO. I was like, I get it Nolan. This girl just doesn’t stop.
Quote It: Okay. I’m mostly ears (Nolan to Aiden)
Quote It: This one time, at Revenge camp… (Nolan to ‘Emily’)
3. Fauxmanda Starts Calling The Shots, Which Means Unapologetic Attempts On Mason’s Life
Ummmmmmmmm, sometimes I forget that Fauxmanda killed a dude back in the day. I mean, she straight up killed that guy who was working for the Graysons. He wasn’t even in as deep as Mason is, but she didn’t like how close he was getting to her and ‘Emily’ so she killed him. Sometimes I forget that, and then she does something like what she did last night and I’m like, oh yeah. She kills people sometimes!
But I loved it! When she started telling Mason that ‘Emily’ was behind it all I got nervous for like two seconds because I was thinking, is she about to snitch on ‘Emily’???!!! But then the more she started talking, the more I was like oh hell nawl, she’s about to eff Mason up, lmao. And I loved that, even after ‘Emily’ walked in on them and tried to stop her, she was still trying to bash him over the head! She’s insane. And a new Mom, so that’s hilarious as well.
Oh, and sidenote… do ya’ll think ‘Emily’ got a teeeeny bit jealous when ‘Amanda’ announced her engagement to Jack? Awwwwk-ward!
Quote It: As of last night, you’re no longer calling the shots. (‘Amanda’ to ‘Emily’)
4. Kara’s Got A Gun
O……EMMMMM….. GEEEEE. Madness, madness, madness. I love this show. I love the Hamptons. I love…. Kara?! LMAO. She’s been scaring the ish out of me (and Victoria) over these past few weeks, but when she came back into town for the sole purpose of blindfolding the Graysons and pulling a gun on them (and, okay, getting their confession) I was elated. After ‘Emily’ and Mason teamed up (the weirdness of which we’ll address next) and Mason told her the truth about David Clarke– mainly that he never killed anyone and was framed for the plane bombing– she abandoned her plans to leave town and made a beeline for Grayson manor. Now she claimed later that she was just trying to scare them into confessing the truth, but I dunno. And the only irksome thing about it (sort of) was that– once again– the Graysons got away! I know we need them, I know Kara couldn’t have possibly killed them, but damn! I just want something to happen to them that they don’t bounce back from, lol. Here’s hoping this scheme ‘Emily’ and Aiden are putting together totally pans out. And how cute is ‘Emily’ in, like, every scene with her mom? She is sooo obsessed with her; it’s really sweet.
Quote It: Sorry. I seem to keep scaring you. (Kara, scaring the hell outta Victoria)
5. ‘Emily’ Confesses All To Mason, Then Teams Up With Him, Then Frames Him, Then Blackmails Him, Then Collaborates With Him
Yo. What just happened?! Wait… so ‘Emily’ saves Mason from the wrath of Fauxmanda, and tells him pretty much everything (she left out the bit about being responsible for the fire that burned down his home and manuscript). Then she does what she always does when someone knows too much– she tries to use them to her advantage. And I loved that moment where she was doing that thing she lurves to do, where she gets in someone’s ear and tells them exactly what to say… except Mason went completely off script and started telling Kara hella stuff, which made her stay (and get at the Graysons). I love that part! Because it was another moment where we got to see how her plans can never fully work because they involve people. And all people have their own issues, their own guilt, their own psyches, their own Daddy issues, etc. And all those issues can come into play at any time, and complicate any plan. But the other cool thing about this moment was that ‘Emily’ was really setting Mason up, by getting him out of the house and having Nolan plant that picture of the gray-haired man on that idea board (see Mason, I told you that board wasn’t a good look for you). So when Mason got arrested, ‘Emily’ showed up to the jail like yeah no. We’re not teaming up, I didn’t tell you everything, I did frame you, and now I’m blackmailing your ass into confessing to those crimes, but don’t worry cause we’re gonna write a bestseller in a little bit and you’ll be fine.
‘Emily’ is insane. And she looked dumb good in that black shirt.
Whew. So here are the important questions– is Kara really, for real gone? Is Nolan about to be hella broke? And when– for the lurve of all things good and beautiful on this planet– are ‘Emily’ and ‘Aiden’ gonna get it on and poppin’?0
