i'm guessing that their idea with aiden's plot is, she left him for daniel,she doesn love him but is more important for her to be with daniel than with someone like aiden that knows her secrets,her life and her real persona,someone with a lot more in commun with her,but that isnt enough to leave the vendeta and the people in it,so he gets dump,gets arrested ,he tips the police to nolan ,he gets shot by daniel, and emily doesn't know,doesn't care for him so he gets biter and now is agains her.thats me trying to find "writer" logic in aiden's new mission.
emily can`t say anything about takeda,one because ,why did he kill him? to save her(according to him)it could be discover why would she knows both,takeda and aiden ,and ultimate be out why she is there in the first place.
my theory with him is that he just wants to stop her revengenda by screwing every plan ,so she can leave to a different life maybe with or without him,otherwise he could just tell everyone the true about her and make her face more consequences ,but doesn't do it because ,maybe it would be too boring for us to watch her go without difficulties in her plans in probably the last of one of the last seasons of revenge before they are out of good ideas.

Emily already knows Adien killed Tekeda.
Still does not stop them from having Aiden be the shooter and then getting stabbed with a katana through the guts in season finale.

so whats so horrible he needs take her down

Aiden has always been an obsessive controlling asshole, so no surprise there.

I need the redemption and repentance thing,I can NOT root for a sociopath and need someone to root for.

The problem with that is that its the most cliched thing EVER. "redemption after revenge' is so tired out and the REASON this show got popular in the first place is because since day one it implied it would not go for that and Ems constantly went on with her revenge despite the moments where typical protagonist would stumble back to goodie-two-shoes route.

The main point of interest of this show IS that Emily is a ruthless antihero.

Emily already knows Adien killed Tekeda. that was last season. I just dont understand Adians motive here. i mean It was a break up. complicated but for them it just came down to she was going in a different direction with her life than he was.... so whats so horrible he needs to take her down. She didnt kill his sister. she is trying to take down the very people responsible for the whole flit 180(?) crap. i dont get it.
Emily needs to switch it up she is becoming predictable and annoying.

I bet the shooting in the first episode is staged by her and Aiden to get her out of the marriage and then she'll have more time to plot during "recovery" and maybe get Jack back on her side through sympathy. I am sure Aiden is still on her side.

Aiden is on Team Aiden.He doesn't care what anyone else wants.And I want him dead.He is after Victoria but doesn't care about "the girl next door's" plans.

I need the redemption and repentance thing,I can NOT root for a sociopath and need someone to root for.

I don't see how Conrad confessing to the priest would do more than the confession to Daniel that they recorded (and then apparently threw away the recording in last season's ridiculous blunder).

I'm not sure that Aiden is 100% out to get Emily. If he was, he could have just said to Victoria "Emily is really Amanda Clarke".

Innocent people are getting caught in her crossfire and until this point, she's been unable to acknowledge that fact.

I feel this is a plot inconsistency, as Ems had no problems with THOUSANDS of people loosing their jobs and money in the whole investor takedown in S1. She never really cared about "helping the innocent", so this change in motivation is incredibly jarring and strange for me.

I hope to gods Aiden is not double-agent. He is the most annoying and most NEEDLESS character in the show, so hopefully Ems finds out about him having killed Takeda and he gets a sword in his gut, because karma's a bitch.

Episode gives me conflicting feelings. On one hand, its nice to see Ems get her hands dirty again instead of tip-toeing around her revenge plan like in S2. On other hand I fear we are going towards a cliched boring "redemption" bullshit.

I hope I am wrong. I hope that evne if the whole redemption is on her mind, the whole boat shooting will set her back on revenge road again.

because let's be frank - we watch this show for her being badass. The VERY FIRST thing the show taught us is that "this is not a story about forgiveness". SO please, writers, DON'T make it about forgiveness and repentance and all that silly bs.

This episode definitely deserved more than a 4.0, Miranda. I think your being a bit harsh towards Revenge. It was a vast improvement from the premiere last week and I definitely starting to get a season 1 vibe, the writers should be awarded for this.
