It’s been forever since we last had a Revenge episode, and since I was still recovering from Thursday’s episode of Scandal I really was not ready for last night’s new episode. Whew! Drama, drama, drama, plus a Charlotte made out with a girl, lmao! This was a really fun episode and I cannot wait to see where things go over the next couple of weeks. Click inside for more!
This episode kinda had that Throwback Revenge feel. This season we’ve lost that feeling of the bad guys getting plucked off one by one, but last night the ‘Emily’ and Nolan were back at their old tricks and it felt sooo good. Watching Nolan take down the Falcon was so effing cool and seeing the Graysons humiliated and caught up in their web of lies was equally cool.
Jack and Ashley continued to work on their own little revenge plot against Conrad, and Declan and Charlotte ran into a few problems brought on by my girl Regina who showed up in the last episode. A lot went down, so let’s get to it!
Season 2, Episode 19: Identity
1. Ashley Smashley And Jack… A Thing?
Okay first off, did Ashley really bring warm/hot chocolate for baby Carl? LMAO, that was awesome. I love when people don’t know how babies work. But here’s the thing. Was anybody else weirded out to see Ashley holding baby Carl and standing by Jack‘s side when he dissed ‘Emily‘? It was weird for me! I get that he’s using her to get at Conrad, but this thing they have going on is def strange. I will say, I was kinda glad that Jack was shutting ‘Emily‘ down (even though it was sad that he basically fired her from her godmotherly duties). ‘Emily’ needs to know that everybody’s not down for her style of revenge which lit’rally involves getting into bed with the enemy.
2. Who Is This Batch?!
Whew! Looks like we have a new bad-ass femme who’s on Revenge just to shake ish up. Regina (played by Seychelle Gabriel) started ish on the last episode and got decked in the face by Charlotte. She then shows up in this episode and kind of apologizes by explaining that she lost her brother to an overdose. She then takes Charlotte out for a night on the town, and makes out with her for the world/Declan to see. Awkward:
No, but really, who is this batch?! It looks like she’s going to have a small role on the show and I can’t wait to see what other ish she starts. We always need an ish-starter. Always.
You sure know how to hit a bitch (Regina)
Punching classmates in the face? (Victoria)
Would you have approved if I smacked her instead? (Charlotte)
3. Meet The Falcon/Nolan Leslie Plays Some Kick Ass Street Fighter
OMGeeee the Falcon is real! This was so much fun! I think a lot of us were worried that the whole search for the Falcon was gonna drag out for like 6 episodes so I was happy to see the entire thing get resolved in last night’s episode. It was perfect! Nolan was sooo back on his hacker ish and I was loving every minute of it. Once ‘Emily‘ and Nolan swooped in and exposed Victoria‘s fake abortion papers, she got so shook she immediately called The Falcon who had to meet with Nolan. Nolan pretended that their meeting was really about getting help with his legal troubles, so she had no clue he was gearing up to hack the eff out of her files. He also got her on his team by kicking her arse in a game of Street Fighter, which was hilarious. And when The Falcon got caught I was totally cheering for Nolan. Since he lost Padma he sooo needed this win, and he was really winning in this episode. More of that please.
And more of referring to him by his first and middle name: Nolan Leslie. Bwahahahaha!
You’ve been spending too much time in the real world (Falcon to Nolan Leslie)
4. Victoria: Exposed
Aw shizz. Got ‘em! This whole episode Conrad was trying to get Victoria to make these public appearances and she was so worried that some ish was gonna come out about her ‘abortion.’ So when Conrad surprised her with that live interview and she had to admit that the ‘abortion’ was really an ‘abandonment,’ I couldn’t help but be pleased that those two were finally put in a really, really awkward position. It needed to happen!
But still, Victoria could have definitely lied about it to the reporter, so I wonder if we’re seeing some kind of change in her. I know I was hella surprised when she showed up at Nolan‘s asking him to help her find her firstborn son. I mean, obviously Nolan‘s gonna help, right? But what will that mean? And what if they find him?!
5. Worst Idea Ever: ‘Then Marry The Son Of A Bitch’
OMG, all this time I thought I wanted to see ‘Emily‘ and Daniel back together and now it’s happening. And I hate it. I haaaate it! ‘Emily‘ does not know what she’s doing, I’m sorry. She tries to act like she has no feelings for Daniel and she can just play him, but please. This is a dangerous game. And Aiden‘s gonna go ahead and play along, even though Takeda told him to get his ass back to Japan, lol. I did appreciate his response to Takeda, in which he was basically was like Yeah no. Revenge is bullshizz and it doesn’t work. But I still feel like he underestimates the relationship between Daniel and ‘Emily,’ otherwise he would never tell her to go ahead and ‘marry the son of a bitch.’ LMAO. I just see this ending badly. And I still have a hard time completely aligning Daniel with his parents, so I kinda feel for him too. The whole thing is just… drama. Drah-maaahhh!
Wait, did y’all catch Nolan‘s face when ‘Emily‘ was on the phone faking-up with Daniel? LMAO, this is exactly how I feel about this game plan:
Nolan gets it right every time.
What did y’all think of the new episode? I didn’t catch the scenes for next week’s episode, so feel free to fill me in if you saw something cray. I’m assuming you saw something cray, lol.
