During last week’s episode of Revenge it became apparent that this season was gonna go out with a bang, and last night’s episode further proved that point. Y’all know I love this show but it’s been a while since I seriously Oh Hell Nawl’d through the entire episode, but last night?! I pretty much Oh Hell Nawl’d from the Paris/engagement announcement all the way to the moment when we met the baddest bitch on the show right now: Carrion! Click inside for more!
I friggen looooved this episode. Drama all over the place. Drama betwixt Victoria and Conrad, who was getting all that inside info from the governor’s wife so he could win the election. Drama with Charlotte, who we thought was on the verge of poppin Ecstasy with Regina… though now it appears that she’s been poppin prenatal vitamins. Whhhhhaaaaatttt?! And hella drama between Aiden, ‘Emily’, and Nolan, none of whom seem to be on exactly the same revenge plan anymore. Madness.
Oh, and then we had Jack and Ashley continuing to plot against the Graysons, but who knows where that’s going? Although, I did like hearing Ashley admit that she purposefully snitched on Jack and ‘Emily’ back in the day because she had a thing for Daniel. But I’m more concerned with the fact that there’s a friggen blackout happening right now courtesy of Carrion/The Falcon who we thought was in jail. WTF?! I love it.
Let’s get to it!
Season 2, Episode 20: Engagement
1. To Paris We [Allegedly] Go
Oh my gosh. PITNBr MJ, I think you’re right– we’re probably never gonna see this wedding pop off. Too much drama! A wedding in Paris? Very hawt, but way too complicated for these two, lol. And Victoria– you gotta love her because she is sooo not fooled by ‘Emily’: ‘I know what a woman in love looks like and that’s not you.‘ Damn… she’s not wrong! Even if ‘Emily’ still has feelings for Daniel, they’re complicated by her relationship with Aiden and their revenge plot to end all revenge plots. Even though Vicki’s busy tracking down her son (or not… seeing as how we learned from Nolan’s visit with the Falcon that years ago she actually paid his ass to stay the eff away), you can tell she’s gonna be watching ‘Emily’ closely.
Emily and I are re-engaged. (Daniel)
Yes. How… repetitious. (Victoria)
You’ll make a terrific grandmother Victoria. And we’ll put a picture up so they can see you. (‘Emily’)
2. Nolan And Aiden Plot AGAINST ‘Emily’?!
Oh boy… I knew this was gonna end badly. What is it with Aiden?! He gave ‘Emily’ permission to marry Daniel in the last episode and this week he had a whole new game plan for ending her revenge plot and taking her away from it all. Dra-mahhh! I mean, what he said to Nolan is correct– she’s never gonna feel that imagined sense of satisfaction that she thinks is going to overwhelm her when her task is complete. But Aiden had to figure that out for himself (after finally avenging his sister), and so does ‘Emily.’
So I thought it was a horrible idea that he went behind her back and asked Nolan to try once again to get into the Grayson bank account. This time Nolan went to the currently imprisoned Falcon and got a hint that gave him access to the account.
But ‘Emily’ FLIPPED when she caught Nolan and Aiden just as they were about to drain the account! I don’t know why she was so against that plan, but don’t you sometimes feel like she wants her revenge task to drag on? We know ‘Emily’ is all about being extra-careful but I honestly think she sorta kinda liked the idea of a phony (or not-so-phony) marriage to Daniel.
3. No But For Real, How Many People Is Aiden Gonna Kill This Season?!
Ummm, I didn’t see this one coming! Takeda was so over ‘Emily’ and Aiden’s love affair/revenge plot that he ratted Aiden out to Daniel. It then became clear to Daniel that Aiden was out for revenge (since his father had connections to the Grayson/David Clarke situation), so he fired him once and for all from Grayson Global and alerted his parents too. Takeda made it clear to ‘Emily’ that he wanted the two of them to call it quits, and then he went on to enter into a Kill Bill-esque sword fight with Aiden. And lost!!! WTF?! Aiden’s body count is lookin’ sooo crazy right now, lmao! And I’m very curious to see how ‘Emily’s gonna feel when she finds out that he killed their teacher.
4. MAMA CHARLOTTE?!?!?!?!?
Oh hell nawl. Oh. Hell. Naawwwwwwlllllll! Now we know why Charlotte was pining away for Fauxmanda in this episode. It’s so much easier to talk about the awkwardness of getting knocked up with someone who’s been there. Sigh. No, but for real. How did this happen?!?! And why am I NOT entirely convinced that Declan is the babydaddy?! When she confessed to Daniel that she was prego, she did not say by whom… and I just don’t see Declan puttin’ in work like that, lmao! What?! No, for real though. Who’s the babydaddy?
Yo, I was sooo psyched when the blackout happened! What is going on?! Didn’t the Falcon tell Nolan that Carrion could not pop off with her in jail? All of y’all who were questioning whether or not she was actually the Falcon last week– is this our official proof? Also, remember when she was getting arrested and she looked in the camera and started yelling at Nolan?
You messed with the wrong person!
What if she meant that literally, lol?! As in, You messed with the incorrect person because I’m not the Falcon. I’m so confused/excited! And all this is happening whilst Declan and Regina are locked in an ATM together (hmmmm), and just as Conrad is about to become Governor (because Vicky clearly leaked that convo she had with the governor’s wife in an attempt to help him win… but probably because she learned from the governor’s wife that political life can kill a man: NICE).
Did you guys love this episode or what? Are you ready for next week’s effing two-hour season finale?! I have a zillion questions and they alllll better get answered by 11 pm EST next week. Like, who in the eff is Vicky’s long-lost son (I love all the different PITNBr theories about how Nolan or Aiden could be Patrick, lmao)? Who is Charlotte’s babydaddy? Are ‘Emily’ and Daniel ever the eff going to get married? Is that chic or is that chic NOT the Falcon? Now that there’s a blackout, what’s about to go down?
And finally: how can I get someone to give me a ring exactly like the one ‘Emily’ got from Daniel only maybe slightly bigger with a little color in it like canary yellow or something, not that I care.
