TTP is one of the RARE shows that picked up midway. I was about to drop it after the 4-ep test, but just watched a couple more because the other shows were on hiatus so much this quarter... and now I can't wait for the next ep. It's a pity the quality picked up too late. I think people who like SPN etc would've liked it now. There's romance, but it's not the focus, and the love triangle has been put on the back burner as well to make way for ACTUAL plots.

The camera returned to the cake to show that a dove's head had been chopped off, since the doves were inside and the cake wasn't meant to be hacked into. It's probably also symbolic for end of the temporary truce. The cake wasn't poisoned since everyone ate it... but only Joffrey drank that particular glass of wine.

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?
