  • OMG!!! What is going on!?

    The storyline continues to get better an d better! I t seems impossible, but it's true! I have no idea what is yet to come and things continue to get more and more interesting with episode after apisode!

    The mots interesting sotryline today was clearly Daniel's arrest and the things that went on then. Interesting dynamics between Victoria and Conrad today, and Ashley makes an interesting moev!

    I don't wanna spoil it, but I am just stunned and can't wait to see what's next ! Keep it up, Revenge! :)moreless
  • 1x16 "Scandal"

    This show should suck. It's set in The Hamptons and the plot is really not that bright. But, Revenge's script and Emily's personality is what gives this show the strenght to pull an episode like this. Well played Revenge... Well played.

    This show is fantastic. I feel it is the best show on TV for drama, keeping ones interest, never knowing what's coming or going to happen next, constant surprises. When I thought I had it all figuered out,,,oops, I was way off base, never imagined. Still can't figure out what actual plot is to this show, meaning whose "revenging who", but that's what makes it so kewl.

    What is Takeda's role, (Ninja King)? Like the others here, I am not sure why he has such a great interest in Emily...and the price she must pay. I keep thinking he has a "revenge" issue of his own with the Greysons and is using Emily as a pawn in a Chess Game...but what is his motive,,not sure. Possibly to bring down and take over Greysons Empire, as he sits on the board with shares. Possibly it goes back to the Father who originally started that company. Could be he has a link with Emily's father, or mother...have we ever known the nationality of Emily's mother? That's why I love this show so many twist and turns....I literally count down the days until it returns and can hardly wait week to week to view it's return.

    I have read and heard others complain about the sporadic showings for this show...such as, they aren't consistent with it's showing. I must admit that does play a big part in this shows audience. I think that has played a part in the reviews...something for them too look into.moreless
  • Great episode!

    This episode was AMAZING! I'm so bummed we don't get any new episodes until April.

    We finally get some questions answered. I knew somehow they would change who got shot on the beach. I can't believe that a sister and a mother can't tell the difference between a member of their own family and an outsider but whatever. They couldn't kill off Daniel, at least not yet. He still has a story to tell.

    Everything is unclear. The timeline of events seems unclear (as some others have pointed out inconsitentancies.) Who was shot by whom and when? Kara was bleeding was it from the random shots that Tyler fired at her? I'm guessing so but she rides off with the Ninja King (as I like to call him.) Does he dispose of her? Probably. Did we see it on Scandal? No. The show will undoubtable have flashbacks to this night showing us more and more as the series progresses. That is one thing that Revenge does a lot of and does it well - showing flashbacks of major events that have shaped the characters into who they are and built the "world' they live in.

    I like the idea of Victoria warming up to Emily. It's totally fake and she's only worried about "how it looks" to the public but still I like it. Far as Victoria knows Emily has only been nice to her and her son. Emily has been good for Daniel you know until this whole murder thing popped.

    In the next few episodes here are the questions:

    1) Ashley's star is on the rise but A) will it continue B) where will it rise to C) Will the Graysons take her out for using their personality life for her personal gain?

    2) Daniel or Jack? One of them is going to go down for the murder of Tyler. King Ninja left no physical evidence (at least that I saw) and both of them are connected to the scene in some way shape or form. Who is going to go down for this murder will be the focus?

    3) What will Emily do? She's created a BUNCH of trouble for herself and those around her. Will she clean up her own messes? If she has to make choices who will she look out for? Who's a priority and who isn't?

    All in all it was an amazing episode that answered some questions but left us with new ones. I"ll be tuning in when episodes re-air because so far the show has been amazing!moreless
  • would i kill for my friends? no way! but Emily has got some truelly loyal allies.

    A woman that can not only control her but her friends also is one who can influence all kinds of situations. Emily clearly knows how to manipulate people espically Daniel. His questions over the box underneath her floor boards caused some seriouse tension between them. Emily does what she knows best and lies to Daniel explaining how critically illl Tyler was and that he should not trust what he says. I on the other hand have my suspicions that Daniel knows more about her plan than we think. That would be a very interesting twist.

    I love how Sensei is always avalible to help Emily. He attacks and kills Tyler for her, Damn!. It would be interesting to see why he is so invested in her. In a werid way its like he has chosen her path for her as she know has to choose between Daniel and Jack.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Daniel is charged with first degree murder in this episode however, under New York law only the murder of law enforcement officers is "first degree". All other premeditated murders are second degree (Tyler Barrol was not a law enforcement officer).

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Emily Thorne: (voice over opening scene) My father's false imprisonment taught me that in a crisis you quickly find out who your real friends are. Tragedy and scandal it seems have a unique way of clarifying people's priorities.
      Emily Thorne: (voice over closing scene) A conflicted heart feeds on doubt and confusion. It will make you question your path, your tactics, your motives. When you stare ahead and darkness is all you see only reason and determination can pull you back from the abyss.
