    • Goodbye Sammy

      Poor Sammy, first time I ever cry on a dog, but what a dog! My heart ached to see him go to Emily for his last breath. And I have to say that the dog acted really well. I hope nothing bad will happen to Nolan, he kind of grew in me that guy. I will quote what Emily says at the end, that in my opinion really sums up Grief : "But grief is a merciless master. Just when you think you're free you realize you never stood a chance".moreless
    • 1.21 'Grief'

      Wow, Daniel is such a weird human being. Betraying your own mama, working with the corrupt papa, not giving a crap about your pillhead sisteR, trying to bribe the most honest guy in Hamptons. Shame on you, Daniel Grayson. Just shame. Like father, like son I guess.

      I felt terribly sorry for Victoria when Lydia re-appeared in Conrad's penthouse and then he threw her out. She came back eventually and stole some incredibly important evidence regarding David Clarke's trial and death. But Daniel was smart enough (is that the right term?) to get it back from her just to please his father. And seriously, how twisted was that family therapy session?

      Emily updates her revenge to even more dangerous level and she should be thankful she has such an amazing friend like Nolan on her side. But life is sad and often unfair and it has a tendency to slap us back and it seems that Nolan is the only one to pay the price for his dangerous albeit very loyal actions. 8,5/10moreless
    • Drama intensifies! Perhaps the most brilliant episode - for more than one reason.

      So much drama in tonight's episode! Aside from Sammy's tragic death, there was so many aspects of this episode which were simply phenomenal!

      Jack and Emily had a very interesting moment! I can't ewait to see how this plays out, especially as Ashley saw it all! Great suspense!

      Meanwhile, the very last scene of this episode was so intense and shocking, not to mention that I can't wait to see what happens next!

      Such a suspenseful, emotional, intriguing, critical, eye-opening episode, and in so many different ways!!! Please keep up the high standard, Revenge! I can't wait to see the finale! :)moreless
    • horrible~

      3.0 I'll post this again....and see how long it stays online. I HATED the way they killed poor Sammy! I knew from day one...that Sammy would end up dieing somehow and bring Emiloy and Jack together. Wellllll the writers did NOT HAVE TO MAKE SAMMY SUFFER!!!

      Struggling to get to Emily's in the freezing cold.....I just fast forwarded it!!

      The actor that plays Jack was great though.....I was crying my eyes out. Revenge has been my favorite show up until now. It leaves a very bad tasted in my mouth for the way they tortured Sammy. I'm repeating myself......moreless

      • Emily Thorne: (voice over opening scene) They say grief occurs in five stages. First, there's denial followed by anger. Then comes bargaining and depression. For most the final stage of grief is acceptance. But for me grief is a life sentence without clemency. I will never accept and I will never forgive not even after the man that killed my father lies dead at my feet.
        Emily Thorne: (voice over closing scene) They say grief occurs in five stages. First there's denial followed by anger. Then comes bargaining, depression and acceptance. But grief is a merciless master. Just when you think you're free you realize you never stood a chance.
