I enjoyed the Duke of Sandringham scenes in this episode. He's definitely another wild card being he's in cahoots with both Black Jack and the Jacobites. After finding a dead baby in the middle of the woods, it makes sense for Claire to want to save a mother and her unborn child, even if the the woman in question is a murderess. Who knows what they did with convicted pregnant women in this time. In regards to the Laoghair situation, what it is that Claire should've done? Should she have gone to Colum? Talk to the girl's parents? (does she have parents?!) Do they dole out punishments for planting "ill wishes"? What was Jamie's take on the matter? I was really thrown off by the revelation that Dougal was married AND was having an affair with Geillis.Dougal's wife should've been mentioned earlier in the season, not 2/3 of the way into it. And the writers should've at least hinted that Dougal and Geillis have a relationship. We've never seen them interact; even in this episodes, they don't speak to each other.

"Revenge" is spiraling out into the worst kind of soap opera. It's losing sight if its original premise: EMILY SEEKING VENGENCE FOR HER FATHER. The show needs to get back to Emily vs. ConVict. No more if this Daniel/Sara nonsense and ESPECIALLY none this Emily-sleeping-with-Conrad bullsh*t. I swear if the writers don't fix things by the end of this season, I'm jumping ship. I can't enjoy a show when I'm dreading each new episode.
Thinking back on it, there's no way Emily could've stopped Amanda, Declan, and Takeda's deaths. She had no idea what they were up to. Same regarding Nolan's situation. I understand. It's tempting to think of Emily as an omniscient being. "Leaves the Graysons pennyless, immediatly returns their fortune just so Victoria can attend her wedding." What episode did that happen?
Emily already knows Aiden killed Takeda.
@ DreaXOXO: JustMe was talking about Faux-Amanda, not the real one.
Alviss: Defensive much? Most people here love Daniel.
The conflict in Emily's relationship with Daniel lies in the fact that he is genuinely a good guy. If Daniel goes down the same road his parents took, then Emily will no longer feel guilty about using him. It just makes her "master plan" that much easier to execute. I'll wait until the next episode to form an opinion on Daniel. He could have ulterior motives for standing by his father.
Zoran: "Chuck did not want Blair to go with Jack and sleeps to him in order to he get back hotel. That's the pointâ€¦â€¦Blair must realize that she do not have to submit to her boyfriends (Chuck) that they would like her. Blair should not try to be what she is not, but should show what she is and she will have immense love of Chuck." Would Chuck have been happy at the time to have Blair only and not the hotel? Would he not have resented her a little for not getting him his hotel back? Prior to that incident, he was so wound up about being a disappointment to his deceased father. Marisa1983: "Blair still hasn't understood that Chuck expected her to refuse to sleep with Jack for the hotelâ€¦it's her own fault she failed the test." What was he testing her for? If it was her love for Chuck, she obviously passed. Was it that she didn't tell him her plan? I don't recall him faulting Blair for that. He said outright they couldn't work together because Jack would see right through it. I apologize for sounding interrogative. I'm just trying to understand your POVs.
@Louis E.: Nolan's actions say otherwise. No matter what he says to Emily, there's a part of him that wants justice for David Clarke too.
@Blu: Are you saying Emily should give up on her schemes or continue? Apparently, Nolan is also working for Takeda. I wouldn't exactly say they have competing interests.
