Edmond Dantes sails off with Haydee at the end of "The Count of Monte Cristo",his revenge issues behind him,and sure as shooting the series finale of Revenge will be our heroine sailing off to Haiti with Jack,her revenge issue behind her.
The thing is, Dantes sails off ALONE. He got his revenge but he lost his love in progress of that.
Betting that the end of the show will be Amanda sailing off, but Jack will be either dead or has left her by then.
What did Emily say as her last line last night?
"let it play".
(cont'd because char limit) Its not a show about Emily getting some sort of happy ending because, frankly I REALLY doubt that it will ever happen.
Emily has been going significantly darker and darker with every episode and has been adding more and more to the list of law-breaking offenses. I doubt they will leave her kill-free for long. Its a logical step. They just have to make sure to squeeze as much emotional potential from it as possible.
BoredNow,nobody to root for = no reason to watch the show.If our heroine proves no better than her adversaries,BYE BYE REVENGE.
You do not your character to have a moral ground to root for him. You need a character to be relatable to root for him/her.
No one roots for Dexter because of some high ground because the guy has no high ground. People root for him because he is interesting compelling character, for example.
Emily has a relatable background enough to be rooted for but what separates her from cookie-cutter main characters is that she does NOT have a moral high-ground and can go pretty damn dark and cruel.
Emily's capability of doing morally questionable and cruel things is arguably one of the BIGGEST attractors to this show. Nobody watches revenge to see Emily be a good guy. People watch revenge to see Emily be badass and destroy others no matter the costs. Its not a show about Emily getting some sort of happy ending because, frankly I REALLY doubt that it will ever happen.
Charlotte was acting very Victoria-like until she regretted hurting Yonkers.
THIS SO MUCH.
Till her regret and plane crash, she was being very much a mini-Victoria. However right now she can either go mini-victoria or mini-emily.
Victoria is obviously not a goner, but she"for now" is for story purposes. It will be nice to see into what kind of person will Charlotte develop from this.
Charlotte is obviously alive too and its just a logical progression of her life. THe finale really made me curious onto which direction the show is pushing her. She can either be mini-victoria or mini-emily now, after the plane crash.
Americon Initiative is an awesome set up. A whole new list of targets and revenge goals. Possibly also connected to Takeda and some government conspiracies. Also most likely to Emily's mother.
While I do find it hilarious that Revenge is a third(fourth?) show already this season that ends on Mother cliffhanger, the finale and set up for s2 was just flawless.
Poor Jack tho, he's been in love with Amanda and now likes Emily but what he doesn't know is that Emily is Amanda and Amanda is Emily. I fear he will be riding to haiti with niether of them by the season 2 finale.
I think that is the point though. By the time Emily is truly done, Jack(if he's still alive), most likely won't want ANYTHING to do with her.
R Cook....why do you want Emily to become a murderer? There has to be a line that she doesn't cross or she is just the same as the Graysons....and no longer the 'hero'.
Oh but that IS THE POINT.
She is not a "hero". She never has been. She is not that different from, the people she is fighting. Emily is an antihero vigilante, highly manipulative and disturbed and, up to some degree sociopathic. Thats what makes her unique.
I have no doubt that not killing the WHM will come back to bite her and that she will have to kill someone.
As for gold-digging, back stabbing, Ashley....she deserves all she gets when Victoria resurfaces!!
I am thinking more than likely that its Emily who will deal with Ashley. Although now I am also hoping for some sort of Emily/Victoria team up in near future ;]
Who's the beast?Elena?lul
Duh, obviously not.
She's talking about damn annoying love triangle. Elena can only be described as piece of furniture.
