Revenge Review: The Next Victim

at . Comments

Revenge just keeps getting better, as Emily set her sights on her next victim this week.

It looks like Uncle Bill sold out her dad - and we all know what happens when someone makes that mistake. He may have even outed David's affair with Victoria and then he testified against him in a terrorist case in order to save his own skin.

So the one thing we can "Trust" is that Uncle Bill is going down. I can't say I didn't enjoy that, being he's such an arrogant ass. Who has a giant Man of Steel/Superman picture in his office? He certainly thinks highly of himself. Unfortunately for him Emily, brought along her own kryptonite.

Of course, it doesn't take much. Bill's a gambler at heart and can't resist a sure thing. When he believes that the little birdie whispering in Emily's ear is Nolan Ross, well, that's just the bait he can't resist. He doesn't see the hook until it's so far in he can't get it out. Bill's company is ruined, his money is gone. Emily's work here is done.

I'm surprised that last week's victim, Lydia, keeps calling Conrad, but it appears she doesn't have many options. She's going to lose everything. If you're getting a divorce and you have a fidelity clause in your pre-nup, perhaps you shouldn't be sleeping around. 

Poor Declan. Getting his butt kicked by Charlotte's moronic boyfriend came as no surprise, although did he really need to bring three of his friends to beat up the kid? He's already twice his size. The one saving grace is that we know from the time jump that Declan eventually gets the girl.

I keep wondering how many unique skills Emily possesses. We didn't see how she did it but she must have broken into both Nolan's car and Bill's office. I can't wait to find out where she learned to do that.

Victoria and Emily are well-matched adversaries. Victoria's going to keep digging until she finds something and we get to see how well Emily has covered her tracks. I'm guessing pretty darn well because she eventually ends up engaged to Daniel.

It's hard to tell if Emily really cares for Daniel or if he's just another mark. Emily VanCamp hinted in this TV Fanatic interview that it's the former, I suppose we'll have to wait and see for sure. He seems like a decent guy despite his past and his family. Knowing where he ends up, I'm beginning to develop some sympathy for him.

The more I watch of Revenge, the more I want to see. So, batter up, Emily. Who's your next victim? Perhaps the trailer for "Betrayal" will give fans an idea. Watch now!

Hand up to Emily Van Camp, she make this show interesting.
It's strange that she not the lead actor on the opening credit ?


Add me to the fans of this show and Emily Van Camp. Who cares if the show is soapy. Anything is better than the reality shows. This is my favorite show of the new season. So many good characters. Can't wait to see how Emily extracts her next REVENGE.


So far Emily Van Camp gives me chills!


Revenge is my favorite fall premiere! I'm loving it so far. Can't wait to see me.


Love this show so far!! definitely my favorite of the fall in the drama department (new girl for comedy)! Emily Van Camp plays the charater so well that we cant help but cheer for her! ps... i really dont want the person that got shot to be Daniel, we never really see his face so im going to be hopeful! Bec the Actor is GORGEOUS and that would be sad if he is actually killed off the show!!!!


So impressed by Emily Van Camp! Can't wait to watch this ep n d next...
