Okay, Revenge! After last week I was really looking forward to the Masquerade episode, and I wasn’t disappointed. Last night sooo much ish popped off, it felt like an episode from Season one– and this is a good thing. It’s only been a few weeks since we lost our beloved Fauxmanda, and we’re already mourning another one of our faves. Sigh, who’s next Revenge?! Who’s next?!?!? Click inside so we can recap the madness.
So aside from some of the death and darkness, this was just, like, a really fly-looking episode, right? The Grayson‘s masquerade ball looked hella fun and just like any party there was drama, awkwardness between exes, and somebody getting punched in the face!
I’ve missed having Victoria at the center of an episode, so this was also a good one for that reason. She’s such a great villain, and she’s got all these great stories from her past– remember that artist dude she was in love with? Loved that one. And then last week we found out she got knocked up on the low? The sad part was that the child belonged to her mother’s boyfriend (I’m assuming that creep we learned about on the Thanksgiving episode), and so she gave the baby up… although she kept much of this information to herself, even as Conrad began to make discoveries.
Ashley and Jack also had some cool moments in this episode. Both appear to be working with the Graysons, but Jack realized that they both have their own grudges against the family and would, therefore, make a good team. I’m def interested in seeing where their alliance is gonna go. As we know, Ashley can be a very resourceful girl and I’d love to see her use those powers to help take down the Graysons. Lots of other stuff popped off, so let’s get to it!
Season 2, Episode 18: Masquerade
1. Nolan’s A Hot Mess
Yikes. I think this was the moment when I realized Nolan really loved him some Padma. I mean, he was a wreck at the beginning of the episode, trying to figure out where The Initiative took his girl. I was kinda surprised to see that he was working with the cops, but since he was their first suspect I guess he decided to keep in touch with them. But I really felt bad for him because damn! All his boos end up… DUNZO! Remember Tyler? Sigh. Our poor Nolan.
Quote It: Start your revengines!
2. Aiden’s Got A Gun/Padma Noooooo!
OMG, when Aiden figured out how to get Trask at the Grayson Global office I was so psyched! And then he pulled the gun on Trask and I was like helllls yeah! We’re gonna find Padma! And then… yeah. We did… but no. It was bad. Now what was interesting was that Padma wasn’t really, actually dead before Aiden found her, which means… what? I have no clue! But something about the presence of her body there for all those weeks makes me feel like there’s a lot more to the story.
Sidenote: Can you believe Aiden killed Trask with his bare hands? I mean, yeah, it’s totally believable but geez! He’s so hot, lol!
3. Charlotte Packs A Mean Left Hook; Bow Down Bitches
This was THE BEST. Wasn’t it?! Wasn’t this the best? Some trick (who looked oddly familiar– anyone know the actress?) started talking hella ish at the ball about the late, great Fauxmanda. Charlotte overheard, walked up on said trick, and proceeded to knock her the hell out. LMAO! We’ve seen a lot of people get bitch-slapped on Revenge, but we’ve never seen no ish like this. Everyone’s always so damn proper in their quests for revenge, it was nice to see someone just go ahead and get gangsta with it. Props to Char!
4. ‘Emily’ & Daniel Make Page Six
Oh, Lord. Y’all know I have a thing for Throwback ‘Emily‘ and Daniel, but this is getting awkward. First Daniel stays away from ‘Emily‘ because he thinks The Initiative sent him that picture and the two bullets as a threat to the two of them. Then Aiden makes the one business decision that causes Trask to pull The Initiative out of Grayson Global, making it possible for ‘Emily‘ and Daniel to re-re-rekindle the flame. But all the faking up and breaking up is too much for me! And I’m actually starting to feel bad for Aiden. I know he felt some type ‘a way when he saw that coupled up picture on page six, and then ‘Emily‘ totally spent the night with Daniel… right?
No, really can we talk about this? At the beginning of the episode somebody was getting it on and poppin’ with ‘Emily,’ right? And it kinda looked like it was Daniel… right? And then Aiden flipped out on her at the end of the episode when she came home in the morning (said he was disgusted, rather than jealous)… even though she never came out and said she’d been with Daniel all night…. riiiight? All I know is, I’m confused and ‘Emily‘s playing a dangerous game. We all know Aiden kills people sometimes!
5. The Nun Who Knew Too Much
So we finally got the full story on Victoria‘s throwback baby, and she basically gave it up to the nun who knew too much. Now what’s interesting is that ‘Emily‘ is going to use this same nun (I think) to find out about Victoria‘s past/son. I mean, that’s obviously what’s happening since she’s obviously not pregnant… by Daniel… right? LMAO. OMG, no. Who is this nun and what does she knooooowwww?!
Quote It: Did y’all catch that little tidbit between Conrad‘s campaign manager and Ashley?
Tap into your inner Clinton. (Ashley to Conrad)
But your inner Clinton taps nothing anymore… right Ms. Davenport?
R.I.P. Padma. Nobody could rock green like you. Nobody.
