Revenge returned to ABC with the episode “Resurrection” in which Emily continued to scheme and backstab while Victoria turned the tables on a former ally and Daniel finally grew a backbone in his efforts to save Charlotte.
After last week’s episode of Revenge that saw Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) recall more details about her mother, Emily had another vivid flashback of her childhood.
What did it mean and where will it lead? We’re not entirely sure at this stage in the Revenge season, but hopefully it will all lead to more answers. As we know, however, they all won’t come at one time.
Over the past two seasons of Revenge, there’s been no shortage of twists and turns. The unpredictable nature of the show is what keeps us hooked. As the season progresses, we’re sure to get many more. Let’s just hope it doesn’t get too convoluted. If season two plays out like last year, we’re in for another wild ride.
Although Charlotte (Christa B. Allen) found new freedom thanks to Daniel, the only person she could confide in was Emily, who had a hidden agenda. Charlotte reunited with Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) before two huge bombshells were dropped. The first shocker was that dear old dad, Conrad, had taken her entire inheritance. The second was that sister Amanda was back in the mix and pregnant.
This week, Victoria did the only thing she could do, feign interest in Charlotte’s inheritance before kicking her to the curb. However, Emily knew better and told Nolan (Gabriel Mann) to keep on eye on Mommy Grayson.
On the heels of Daniel’s (Joshua Bowman) discovery that Conrad (Henry Czerny) made Charlotte look metally incompetent, Daniel burst into his father’s meeting with investors to make a scene and possibly dissuade the key moneymen.
The best Revenge moment in “Resurrection” came when Conrad reunited with Victoria and a fight was staged between the two to make it look like she had been assaulted by the white-haired man (aka Mannibal Lecte). We all know that Conrad has been itching to get one over on Victoria, but his punches were all too real. Did Victoria take too much of a beating? Empathy for Victoria? What is this show doing to us?
Beyond the fake drama, Jack and Amanda got their paternity test results. Although Jack is the biological father, Emily tricked Amanda into thinking the results were doctored just to say he was father. So much scheming! Even Nolan confronted Emily about the unnecessary lie.
As for the white-haired man, Emily revealed video evidence that could exonerate him from being Victoria’s alleged attacker. Of course, she wanted something in exchange. When Emily grilled him about her mother, she got an unlikely answer, that he was supposed to kill her. And just before he tried to kill Emily in “Resurrection”, the white-haired man admitted that he doesn’t always follow orders.
Like last week on Revenge, it was Aiden (Barry Sloane) to the rescue.
