YEEEEEEEEES! This episode just offered endless possibilities to redeem the show after the B613 debacle! Can't wait to see what happens next season! Rowan Pope is behind bars!!!! Although I am not sure that his embezzlement charges are gonna be enough to keep him in jail forever. I just hope he's not gonna come back next season and become the villain again. The writers need to leave him aside for a (long) while. Or he can come back in the first episode of season 5 to die. Jake is gone (hopefully for good), so now Olivia can finally be with Fitz and stop being so freaking indecisive. It's a bit of a shame she didn't really choose him by herself, as she still needed Jake to open her eyes about the fact that she is in love with Fitz. I like Olivia but she is one of the blindest people ever when it comes to love. I feel bad for Mellie, she didn't know she was basically killing these people. But at least she got elected, so she's got that for her. I'm really interested in seeing how her leaving the White House will become public, if it becomes public at all. Looks like Liz is going to have a lot of work to do to fix this one. I used to love Cyrus, but after this episode, this guy might be dead for all I care. He is almost as evil as Rowan. He got what he deserved, he is gone. I just hope they're not gonna make him the big villain for the next 3 seasons like B613. No storyline should be dragged on for that long. Ever. The only thing I regret is that we didn't see Quinn pulling the trigger. Huck needs to go. I am so over his massive crazy eyes. After this episode it is clear that he will never be able to change, and Olivia doesn't need a guy who will just go kill people in her team. I know Rowan was threatening his family, but as Quinn said, he enjoyed. That man is a psycho. A bit disappointed as well that we didn't see more of Abby. I feel like the writers kind of forgot that she is a series regular. SHE should have become Chief of Staff (even though I am really happy that Portia de Rossi is staying on the show). But hopefully with Liv in the White House we will see more Abby-Olivia interactions. All in all an amazing finally that will allow Shonda to kind of reboot the show. There are so many different directions the show can go now, hopefully she will choose a good one!
I think Victoria is too far gone. She's lying to herself all the time. I think that she could have been saved before she killed Aidan. I actually liked Victoria for a while. But now she is just a crazy old bitch living in her world of fantasies. Her hatred for Emily is too deep for her to be redeemed. I hope she's either going to die or be locked up in the series finale.
I completely disagree with your review. I feel like the fact that they moved this episode is a sign that they know where they are going, which is a series finale. If they had kept this episode as the penultimate, they would not have had time to give us a good series finale, It would have felt way too rushed. By moving this episode, they still have 4 episodes to build up to a great final episode. By reminding us of everything that happen, they set the key elements that will play a part in the last 4 episodes of the series. The promo for next week's episode seems to corroborate this. I am actually really happy Revenge will end this season. Not because I think it is bad, but because as soon as David came back, I knew there were only a few stories left to be told. And with Emily revealing her true identity, there really is no point in having a fifth season, even a shortened one. Looks like we're not going to end up with a bad ending!
