Revenge Review: Straight To Hell

by at . Comments

"Justice" landed us deep in the middle of Daniel's trial, as the Graysons were scrambling to find a way to spring their beloved son.

After last week's reveal that Charlotte was under the influence, you'd think her parents might do something about that. But Victoria and Conrad were so involved in their shenanigans - trying to manipulate Daniel's trial - that no one seemed to notice Charlotte is still popping pills. Victoria even told her daughter to be resourceful to get Declan to change his testimony... which was basically code for sleep with the boy if you have to.

Concerned Graysons

No wonder the girl was spiraling out of control by threatening and paying off the staff to sneak in her sleazy ex and then having sex with him to get more pills. The Graysons may save Daniel but they're losing Charlotte - and they don't even seem to care.

Elsewhere, Jack wandered back to the Hamptons after Nolan and Emily sent him on a wild goose chase to find Amanda. His head was spinning, as evidenced by this Revenge quote

Well, Jack's definitely getting screwed with but it's not by Amanda. At least not this time.

And has Jack really been traveling between Canada and the U.S. with the bloody hoodie in his bag? What the heck was he thinking? Declan was right about one thing: Jack was going out on a very shaky limb for a girl he knew when he was 12.

I almost felt sorry for Declan. He's obviously got it bad for Charlotte because he knew it had been 58 days since they'd broken up. He'd lost his mother and father and he was scared to death he was about to lose Jack too. Still, throwing Charlotte under the bus in court when he knew she wasn't lying was somewhat cruel, even if I did understand his motives.

I still wasn't sold on this storyline with Victoria's lover. Was Dominick really just brought on for Conrad to chase him off or will we be seeing him again?

I sort of hope not. Victoria got pretty cheesy when she was with him as she talked about their love being so hot that if she let him burn her she'd turn to ash and that's why she ran. Ugh. 

Victoria was once again wrapping her son around her manipulative little finger. She had him doubting Emily, but I did have to wonder: didn't Emily realize that the Graysons were watching her from their home? It seemed odd that she wouldn't realize that a home bound Daniel might be quasi stalking her as he called.

When a drunken Daniel showed up at Emily's all I could think was is he that stupid, desperate and jealous. Yes, to all of the above.

How funny was it when Nolan referred to Lee Moran as Victoria's mini-Frank? Unfortunately for Lee, he ended up with a similar fate.

Emily's plan was genius. She exonerated Daniel, protected Jack and set up Lee to turn on the Graysons by simply planting that hoodie on him. Although at this point you'd think the Porters would get a better security system. How many times has their place gotten broken into now?

Emily's set up was an awesome plan. Unfortunately the Grayson power and money reach much farther than she ever imagined.

If we thought that Emily was serious about revenge before, one can only imagine where she'll take this plot now that she believes the Graysons murdered her father. Her search for justice might take them all straight to Hell before it's done.

A bit dissapointing episode considering the rest of the season has been great.Lee the kiler easily wrapped up and Daniel off the hook.

What motive could Lee have possibly had for killing himself and admitting to the murder? It just doesn't make sense. Unless we find out later that Conrad is responsible for Lee's death...
we already found that out. Conrad is responsible for both the staged death of Lee AND the staged death of David Clarke.

Daniel's real father > This seems so right now but..
I think that Dominick is Daniel's real father. And nobody but Victoria knows this.
This reveal will come at the right time.
We haven't seen the last of Dominick.

This episode frustrated me. It seems like things just fall together all too smoothly for Emily. Even when her own plan doesn't pull through, someone else conveniently does something stupid and does the work for her. What motive could Lee have possibly had for killing himself and admitting to the murder? It just doesn't make sense. Unless we find out later that Conrad is responsible for Lee's death...

I feel for Victoria, don't get me wrong, she is a shark but ultimately, however evil she is, it's to protect somebody. With the whole David Clarke fiasco, she chose to side with Conrad to protect her son Daniel but she also loved David Clarke. She had his child and named her after his aunt. I would love to know why Emily treats Victoria as most responsible for Clarke - I feel Conrad has been getting off rather lightly.

I get it she is trying to bring down the Graysons but Daniel had nothing to do with what happened to her dad.
the way she handled Charlotte situation proves that she does not care about collateral damage and has very little regard for any of the graysons. Majority of those people are just a puppets in her play.

I really wish the daniel emily story line had never happened. I feel so bad for him and every time that I start to feel like she might actually have feelings for him she favors Jack once again. I get it she is trying to bring down the Graysons but Daniel had nothing to do with what happened to her dad. And I really wish they had've had a little bit better of a back story to Jack and Emily if they want us to believe that she would have these feelings for him over even though she only knew him when she was a little girl over Daniel who she is in a relationship with. The whole love triangle thing really just tends to make me mad more than aiding in the story so I wish they had've just left it out.
