Revenge > Revenge Review: Playing With Fire > Comments Page 2
My sweet Nolan, I am soooo happy that he found someone, only thing is, now, will she be a problem...She found the investment that David Clarke made... I am NOT happy. The guy deserves more, not just be Ems's wing man ! Daniel, I like him now. If he keeps this up, he might become a powerful ally against his family... OR NOT ! lol
I cannot wait for the rest !!!!!!!!!
WOW !!!!! It took me 2 days to watch season 1, and this morning to watch season 2... But DAMN I love this show. Emily is very complicated. I understand and very much approve (LOL) but sometimes I hate her... the way she often treated Nolan, whom I looove, and Amanda... AWFUL ! And this time she pushed too far. Poor Amanda...well at least Ems got what she wanted ! She found her mom, only to find out that the woman tried to kill her ! SHIT ! Sooo Victoria was telling the truth...sooo rare. As for her, same, I am supposed to hate the woman, but in a twisted way, I sometimes find myself rooting for her !
Jack, honey, what did Declan put you into... I am thrilled to see the new Charlotte !! Hope it lasts ! As for Aiden, please, I WANT MORE !!!! Gosh the man ROCKS. I want him with Ems now !!!
FINALLY, a good, maybe even great, episode. this is what i have been waiting for all season. so made at emily for putting amanda in danger, i knew nothing good would come of it. i so wanted to jump into the screen and slap her a couple of times. both amanda and the baby could have died and for what? for information that she miraculously remembered at the end of the episode anyway. i wasnt suspecting padma before but now i am. why is she so interested in david clarke's investment check? and what is up with the guy going after the stowaway? is he working for the graysons or is there something special about the pub that we (and jack) dont know?
For the first time I saw how much Emily really misses her family and how much of a trauma this is for her. Revenge is one thing, but she is still human. And I have to say, I was so glad Aiden was there for her! The guy untieded himself and bleeding the first thing he does is call Emily. Guys, I am thinking of switching ships!
OMG! What an episode!!!!!!!! I thought Amanda would just tumble down the stairs but falling of it? and she is in a coma? Emily's mom was married to the WHM? She came to the hospital? Wow, the show deserves a standing O for that episode! I am amazed with what I saw. I am enjoying this new love sl for Nolan, he deserves to be loved, although wasn't he happy when Emily thanked him and actually said :No, really, thank you? I don't ship them as a romantic couple, but she is definitively important to him. So its going to be interesting how much time will he be able to spend with her and Padma. Will those two get along? Can't wait for that! Emily went overboard as usual with her manipulations with Amanda (sorry, bad reference!) but I still felt so sorry for her at the end of that episode! For the first time I saw how much Emily really misses her family and how much of a trauma this is for her. Revenge is one thing, but she is still human. And I have to say, I was so glad Aiden was there for h
I don't know if it's only me but I always felt like Nolan and Emily had a brother sister sort of relationship but this ep, the way he was surprised Padma cared, mad me think that that was actually what he wanted Emily to do, and never did, and that he actually loved her.. I don't know.. That being said, I was really pissed at Emily for srewingwith Amanda's life, I don;t know why she's so nice an kept helping her, if she only knew all the lies Emily told her! I feel so bad or her, I hope she wakes up and she and Jack can be a happy family with the baby and maybe move away later..they deserve it, and Jack's not right for Emily any way.. she belongs with Daniel, but I'm really digging Aiden for now! Ad omg her mother married to the evil guy who wanted her killed and tried to kill her, how could she leave her alone with Amanda?! Hope she doesn't try anything..and one more thin, I really hope DDeclan and Ashley are in that boat when it sinks!
Nolan deserves his own storyline as a character. If he continues to remain in Emily's shadow he will only be known as "Emily and Nolan" and lack growth as a character. Im not saying that they should never be friends or plot together, im just saying that each cahracter deserves his or her owm spot and plot in the show.If anything, this will bring them closer together and you know what they say "absense makes the heart grow fonder" As for the love interests (Padma and Aiden) shit happens; life happens. Relationships give characters new dimension and layers; in Nolans case,he becomes more useful to Emily (acting like a crutch and a last minute choice- a secret weapon) and he doesn't have to live in emily's shadow to do that. Its a show and don't take it personally.
As much as i like Emily and Nolan together, its good for him to have his own storyline; let him branch out a little. Nolan exists beyond Emily and has his own shit to deal with and i think we should acknowledge that as fans.
What an episode! I have to watch it again. I think I missed some things. At first I disliked FauxAmanda, but now I'm beginning to like her and feel sorry for her. RealAmanda/Emily is really pushing her, and she genuinely does not want to do certain things. She really loves Jack, and the baby is really his (although Emily made her feel it isn't). The name of this show is so correct because Emily is not letting up and doesn't care who she hurts once she gets her revenge (but I still root for her). I wish she'd lighten up on Amanda though. Great ep. Going to re-watch.
Amazing episode! I'm loving Kara shes definitely going to be a force to be reckoned with Im excited to see how that plays out. I think she is going to screw Emily over-it should be interesting.... Right now I find the whole Jack/Declan arc to be a bit annoying and taking away from the rest of the story but who knows where thats gonna go. I love the Conrad Victoria bickering its epic!! As far as Daniel and Ashley I really dont like Ashley shes such an opportunist and a player I used to like her now shes just annoying. Keep the spoilers coming, loving 'em! Best part of the whole show is that my husband is too embarrassed to admit it but hes totally into it so he'll quietly come sit down next to me and watch it... mwahaha I've converted him into the world of TV dramas....
I am also all for Aiden being more a romantic interest than any other (hell, if for no other reason, he actually knows who and what she actually is) but I am actually vaguely seeing him as her next point of vengeance (not on him, but he is either set up for something or killed by someone which refocus our Emily into the lethal person we met last year)..I do have a feeling we are a few episodes from Emily and Nolan reconnecting and almost having a dish session over their respective love lives (speaking of, Nolan or Emily have to clear up for poor Padma that the two of them are more like brother and sister than anything else).
I am not sure if Kara was drowning young Amanda to hide her from David or in a if I can't have you no one can type mentality. And to hide from David? Um, why? If somehow he was actually not a good dude, well, wouldn't that turn this whole show on its butt?
Since they are now firmly in soap opera territory (putting a character who holds a secret important t
Wow, this episode nearly left me in a coma! Sheez! It was so action-packed, I am surprised the storyline survived the onslaught of revelations. But a couple of things confused me. Wasn't Nolan gay in previous episodes? Or has he claimed to be bisexual and I just missed it? (Either way, I think the man is hella sexy) Also, didn't Emily remember about her mom trying to drown her in a flashback before this?I seem to remember her having a bad dream about drowning awhile back. And though I loathe Fauxmanda, who defines cheap and sleazy, I nearly jumped out of my skin when Victoria threw her over the balcony! I swear, everyone Victoria touches ends up in some horrible situation...the woman is pure poison! Why is Jack so darned clueless, and why is Declan so niave that he continues to grind his family to ruin? Loved the ep, can't wait for another, though I do hope Nolan doesn't fall in love with his CFO
Yesssss! Fauxmanda will awaken but the fall will cause her to resume a life as Emily, forgetting much of her past collusion with Amanada...er Emily, well you know what I mean! Can we handle having two "Ems" at the same time? I think not and a lot will have to unravel should that happen...or else she will up and die on us. Too bad after providing the much needed comic relief, and delivering that zinger with perfect timing! Interesting, too, that no one has mentioned Fauxmanda's entourage that showed up with her at the baby shower? That was some group and I'm curious if there may be a new character lurking in the posse' who knows a little too much? Not that we don't have enough on our plate already-it is certainly Dallas, Knotts Landing, and Falcon Crest rolled up in one great big ball o' drama...and it's a ball to watch, that's for sure. Jennifer Jason Leigh is an inspired choice to play the caring, hateful and craaaazy mother, especially after her loony romp on "Weeds." No one plays cr
....on the messed-up Graysons!! Love this show!! Great review, Steve!
Great episode!! But I am totally confused...didn't Emily falsify the true paternity tests for faux-Amanda and Jack?? So the baby is NOT Jack's and will DNA so indicate later on? Hope faux-Amanda doesn't make it...dislike her more than clueless Declan, and hope the guy on the ocean bottom in the Amanda (boat) is the sckemer and he takes Declan's friend with him, but feel it won't be until the end of the season, long after Jack loses the bar (and apparently the boat)! Emily is totally messed up and confused right now...Nolan is off with his personal loss and new love, not monitoring the Grayson security system...neither there for each other...she finally realized her mom tried to kill her as a child...her friend Jack is messed up over faux-Amanda, 'his' son, and Declan's theft that could cause financial ruin...and, maybe old feelings for Aiden that she turns to him! Daniel is confusing, too...why take Ashley to bed when she is working with Dad against him? And don't get me started
Am I the ONLY one that feels sorry for fauxy Amanda? seriously? I know she was really irritating but she was soooo loyal to Emily, and really she was truely inlove with Jack in the end she did let go, only a person the is really inlove lets go, and she set him free, she was always protecting her friend even when she was about to die, I just felt sooo bad sooo sad.
I loved how Daniel has no clue how to scheme haha but maybe he will in the near future, he should learn from his mother heck even from his father.
I've died and gone to heaven.
Best episode ever, I have loved ALL the characters, even FauxAmanda and Declan. I bet the dead guy is the blond scheming against Jack, and of course the main suspects will be Dec and Jack... so probably one of the two will go to prison. Aidan grows to me episode after episode!!! And Jennifer Jason-Leigh is simply amazing, can't wait for her showdown with Victoria/Madeleine Stowe!
First apologies for typos in last post. As far as the check is concerned, no idea why anyone is worried about the IRS doing anything, if a guys gets convicted of murder, but he gave his buddy $10k to invest in his business prior to that conviction, that means nothing. I understand this is treason (with DC) but the fact remains he invested in NoelCorp long before he was arrested for anything, the check was cashed and if there were any issues with a tax standpoint that IRS would have been after Nolan long before now. He can give Ems anything he wants in terms of the company, it is his to give, DC was just an investor like any other.
I think the GF was freaked out really because of the name and as I mentioned earlier maybe a personal connection to the tragedy, I am afraid Nolan is going to have to reveal a lot of the "truth" to her in order to calm her down, "oh what a tangled web we weave...."
Wow...so damn much going on I have to watch it again, WHM and Kara were married? What? Why was he trying to kill her daughter? How will Nolan's new GF use this check info? Is she only freaked out because of who she "thinks" David Clarke is, or was it darker? Did she lose someone on that plane that was brought down? Never saw Amanda falling off the balcony, so now I see the Grayson's taking her in while she is in a coma, and the last eps of the season, Vicky & Charlotte are walking by "Amanda's" room and Grayson Hollows and Amanda wakes up and says to "EmilY" ...."Amanda, I don't think I am going to make it, can you take care of the baby with Jack, that is how it was always means to be, you and Jack, since you were little kids.." LOL it's going to be something like that!
I have such a huge love for this show, soap, whodunnit, gorgeous clothes and locations, genius writing, even better acting....is it Sunday yet?
I think the body in the Amanda at the bottom of the ocean is the guy scheming for the bar. Do I recall seeing a nice watch on the wrist in that promo, or am I conflating two things?
Kara's quite the enigma. I liked seeing Ems finally break down and Aiden be there, not let her push him away. I hope Nolan and Padma are going to work out, and though I think it was scary that she saw the check, I don't think that means that half the company would be seized (the implication in the comment below re: IRS) because that would have been determined when he left it to Ems/Realmanda. If she was able to legally inherit that, I think it would have been caught already, no?
It's probably some gray area in terms of what assets were siezed and what were not, but I imagine he spent the money when he had it, and that's safe from repossession - otherwise, imagine all the companies that would be closed down when similar things happen on wall street. Tough to say.
Overall - head spinning but LOVED
Great episode! I didn't think about the Aiden/Ash connection, but that could be interesting. Though I just don't see Ash as that bright, though that could very well just be her - disguise?
I like Aiden and Ems as a couple.
One thing I really like about Fauxmanda is that every time Ems shows a hint of pain/truth, she is IMMEDIATELY by her side, putting her own needs aside. I generally don't care much for the character, but my heart breaks each time with this, because it shows how much she truly, actually loves Ems. I for one actually thought she would die but am glad she (so far) has not.
Holy crap, poor Jack. And STUPID, STUPID Declan. I wasn't a Dec hater before but I'm getting there.
I agree w/what someone else said that an enlightened Jack would be far more interesting and would help him understand why his feelings for Ems are so intense.
I think the body in the Amanda at the bottom of the ocean is the guy scheming for the bar. Do I recall seeing a nice watch on the
I don't know how they did it. I'm never a really BIG fan of anything but this quasi soap opera (for lack of a better word) has sucked me in BIG TIME!
I LOVE THIS SHOW!
It's sad really, because when I see a really great show like this I want to see it every night, I don't want wait for a week.
And then there's the crappy shows like Idol filling up the airwaves on multiple nights.
