Well, Lexi has recurred in many other episodes, with actual plotlines, so it was okay to give some other characters a chance this time.
Fully agree. And if she wasn't going to die, they shouldn't have wasted the entire episode on her sobby goodbyes, and gotten straight to the hijacking of Elena and gotten into that storyline.
It's bad writing and completely out of sync with Daniel's original characteristics. Don't worry about it, all this is just to force Jack + Emily on us, which will make lots of people, including Miranda our reviewer, ecstatic.
Emily is having blackouts because she hit her head on the water when she fell off the yacht. Falling off that height into water is almost like falling on hard ground. She might have a blood clot or something in her head.
He doesn't KNOW she is David Clarke's daughter. Why would he unnecessarily risk his family's reputation for nothing? He'd have been a BAD guy if he'd KNOWN the (then) love of his life was David Clarke's daughter and STILL ruined the evidence. And the Daniel he was then, he probably wouldn't have.
Nicely written recap. Jack and Emily is the worst storyline of Revenge and so many contrivances have been done to make them 'happen' that it's really frustrating now. I took a long, long time to get used to Aiden, but over the past couple of episodes, he seemed really terribly devotedly in love with Emily, and when she was DYING her last wish was to be with him. It was an epic moment and no matter what Aiden's history, if FELT REAL. And then, boom. Random chick. Random kiss. Exit time for Aiden so Jack can play. I really think it's sucky writing and/or casting when you have to struggle so hard to ELIMINATE the realistic romance options of the lead heroine - Daniel, Aiden - to WEDGE the completely unbelievable option i.e. Jack in. I mean, Aiden just got KO'ed for no reason at all.
Anyway, moving on - Patrick & Victoria - why are they so touchy-feely? Daniel & Victoria have a solid mother/son relnship but even in S1 when everything was hunky dory she was not this 'emotionally huggy' with him... and Danny was a epic mama's boy till recently.
Finally, the Sarah plot needs to die. Daniel needs to either do Grayson fully or just go away to Switzerland or something. The same lame diversion as Aiden to get rid of him... random girl. Random kiss. Zero imagination.
But Charlotte is so incredibly dumb and dull, I'm counting on Victoria and Patrick to discover the David Clarke connection. There was no reason for Charlotte to go to Jack first... she should've told DANIEL by all logical approaches.
Why isn't Reign on this list?
The preview shows her climbing onto a buoy or something so she obviously saved herself, and ditched her dress to keep it from weighing her down. After that she's prob rescued by the coast guard since the Graysons are in the hospital with her.
Talk about transferring your own situation to this case. Going by the show, Daniel is well-liked by his co-workers, and generally regarded as a standup guy by all and sundry in society and media. His commitment to Emily was genuine, and he's loyal to his family like most people are to theirs. He has also quit Grayson Global to work at a normal job for a tough taskmaster boss Margaux who takes no shit from him. He started unravelling under the various machinations of Emily as he was her main pawn, the person whose emotions and expectations she screwed with the most. Daniel takes pride in not being precisely the kind of person you're talking about. (All past tense now since obv the show writers are trying to set him up as the villain of the next season). You have to take the show's characters as they are presented and not dream up AU storylines for them in a review forum.
