I see ... somehow I didn't pick up on that!
Apologies for Shmiel misspelling ...
My guess was that the plane did in fact crash, as seen on the news at the end of Season 1, and that Victoria simply walked off before takeoff, while Lydia did in fact die. How Victoria left without raising suspicions among the other passengers, or whether she knew it was going to crash, who knows, but that was my interpretation (obviously, this being Revenge, you can never be 100 percent sure).
As for Emily and Nolan, I agree their relationship might be the best thing about the show. However I always viewed it as more of a friendship, or even brother-sister relationship, rather than a romantic one, therefore he's not in the poll above. But make no mistake, Nolan rules.
Thanks to all who ID'd Rene Auberjonois ... I could not figure that out and it was killing me. He was on Boston Legal too if I recall.
A note about ratings - it's an imperfect system and subject to interpretation. I look at it as a fan of this particular show, not in comparison to other shows, with 5 being the best possible episode of that show, and saving that for ones that are truly OMG worthy (or O-EM-G, if you will, in this case). I love Revenge and enjoyed this week, as I said above. But I know based on last season that it will up the ante in the coming weeks as some of these new storylines develop and become even more engrossing. Thanks for reading and for your comments!
@Amy - I had the same thought, but she unquestionably said brave. I'd never heard it used in that saying before.
Appreciate the corrections on those quotes everyone ...
@ Nisan -
I have not actually seen any more of this season. The comments I made regarding future episodes are part my own predictions and part based on interviews I've read (and conducted, at this year's Comic-Con) that I thought might paint the season premiere in an interesting light, relative to the season's broader narrative. Nothing has been spoiled, however, because I truly don't know what happens next!
A few comments re: spoilers ... we apologize if anyone felt this gave away too much. We specifically posted them below the photo with a warning beforehand, and tried not to reveal anything too significant. That said, we'll keep this in mind going forward and try to keep things a little more sparse/vague.
Just the same, having seen the episode, we tried to post these teasers without divulging anything that would take away from viewers' experience, and we're confident we did that. There are countless quotes, moments, plot details and scenes that are not revealed here and that must be seen to be appreciated.
Yes. I'd love to write more but I don't want Gibbs hunting me down.
