JJ is out on a date this week so Miz took the opportunity to get in first and discuss this week’s Revenge episode. Love you LONG TIME JJ!! If it helps, you really just missed nice-Emily trying to outplay bad-Emily – her conscience may be getting on her nerves, but it’s not getting the better of her just yet, despite what her dad’s journals say to the contrary. “I knew you hadn’t gone full darkside” … “It’s too late.”
So, Aiden really is working with Victoria … Apparently … But I can’t help but think that if he was working with her, why doesn’t he simply tell her who Emily is? Surely that news is a home run. (Also, I’m assuming Aiden knows the whole story of why Emily wants revenge – JJ, does he know that she’s really Amanda? Surely yes right??) Does that leave an opening for Emily to actually still have him on side. Seems unlikely though. GO HOME AIDEN no one likes you. [Can Aiden get a cameo on GoT?!]
Talking about people no one likes, CONRAD. No one likes you. I agree that you should be selling all your things, but man you’re just a dick. Well played Emily for the nice touch in spiking the drink which made Conrad question his own mortality, however Conrad will never confess – well certainly that is true for the Conrad-of-the-last-two-seasons. Well played indeed.
Nolan got sexytime. Boom chuka whop wah. Awesomesauce. And now bakes blueberry muffins?! What a hottie. This week Nolan plays the character of “good cop” on Emily’s shoulder. And Emily steals Nolan’s baking and gives it to Conrad. She’s such an excellent caregiver. Cough. I appreciated the re-regifting of the muffins of Victoria to Nolan. Well played writers, well played indeed.
Emily still has the infinity chest of DOOM WITH THE RED SHARPIE!! Actual red sharpie. Yeeeessssssss. And a new victim to cross off – Father Paul – who worked for Grayson Global 10 years ago before finding his higher calling. Guess what? In a huge plot twist (cough) Emily and Daniel have asked Father Paul to preside over their ceremony. Yadda yadda yadda, Conrad paid Paul off in the past for something blemishing: “Better to be honestly unhappy, than dishonestly so”. Father Paul YOU MAKE NO SENSE. I guess it is another character that they need to expand on. And for Emily to beat up. And then for him to fall on his metaphorical sword. Though no red sharpie cross suggests that Emily (a) has either developed a conscious, or (b) we haven;t seen the last of him.
SO MANY RED SHARPIES. Jack has one. Love love love it. That is all.
Charlotte had a superficial conversation to Jack (not with Jack – she cannot maintain a two-sided conversation) about missing Declan and how bad things happen to good people, or something, cross referencing her dad. BOO CHARLOTTE wake up and smell the fact that your father is responsible for his demise. Also, Charlotte hating on Emily? This is surely superficial – writers are totally clutching at straws. Charlotte loved Emily; and Miz thinks it was reciprocal (as much as it can be when someone is lying). Also, the failed pregnancy reared it’s ugly head again tonight – Charlotte has been blaming herself this whole time. At least she showed some guilt and that it’s miscarriage rather than an abortion. But still URGH storyline from season 2.
Emily wants Patrick part of the wedding? Super confusing. Then she buys one of Patrick’s paintings or Nolan does? I though he had disappeared. FOREVER (cue distressing music). Obviously that didn’t happen. Does forever mean nothing these days!?!? Also, there is still totally a sexual undertone to Victoria and Patrick and introducing him to Victoria’s family? Very very weird. The whole family dinner scene was super.awkward. Hated it. Hate the Patrick storyline. Grumble. (Also seems like Patrick isn’t Emily’s pawn – maybe a third person involved here. Watch this space).
Jack and Emily had a nice meetup. WITH PUPPIES! Foreshadowing / trying to make this relationship pure. I’m worried about these two. I want these to literally run off into the sunset together. Odds?
French girl and magazine. Don’t like. Like her dress and underwear though. Nuff said. And did Daniel just go there?!?! NO NO NO DEAL dude. Emily has been so nice to you Daniel (well kinda). “I’d told her I’d sleep on it”. OH COME ON DANIEL. Stop drink, and grow up. Though apparently nothing happened, which I find it hard to believe. Grumble grumble.
All-in-all a strong Revenge episode. Miz just hates so many characters … it’s like the show you love to hate. Is it bad that I hope it finishes this season with Emily actually dying, as was shown at the beginning of last episode? Totes not going to happen, but still. Grumble.
PS I want Charlotte’s dress.
PPS Just realised Asheligh has gone. Hopefully for good. Maybe the plane blew up, though we didn’t hear anything about it so highly unlikley. Hooray! I shall drink to that!
