Revenge Round Table: "Exodus"Steve Marsi at .
Revenge Season 3 Episode 10 saw Emily Thorne's plan to dethrone Victoria Grayson culminate in a dramatic, shocking turn of events on her wedding day.
Below, TV Fanatic staff members Miranda Wicker, Christine Orlando and Steve Marsi break down the installment from all angles in our Round Table Q&A.
Read their responses and then weigh in with your own!
1. What was your favorite scene or quote from Revenge Season 3 Episode 10?
Christine: For me it was the actual shooting. We've seen Emily fall off of that boat so many times this seasons that I'm happy just to be past that scene. I had no idea who would do the shooting but from the shocked look on her face, having it be Daniel made sense.
Miranda: Jack coming to the beach to say goodbye. I like Emily with Aiden, but I still believe Jack is endgame. That he couldn't let her go without seeing her one last time is telling. He just can't quit her.
Steve: Emily coming face to face with Victoria on the boat. I legitimately had no idea how that was going to play out and how she was going to end up taking two to the stomach and the tension was palpable.
2. Were you shocked that Daniel was the shooter?
Christine: No. Haven't we been down this road before with Daniel? The boy makes poor judgment calls, especially when he's drunk. And finding out that you've been lied to for two years, even about a baby on the way could make almost anyone snap.
Miranda: Yes? No? I'm really conflicted about this. Daniel shoots someone again? That's the best they could do? I'm changing my answer to no, I'm not surprised. But I am disappointed.
Steve: A little, and partially because the thing that drove him over the edge (see question #3) felt like it came out of left field. I honestly pictured Victoria herself (which would've been ironic, as she was going to be framed for it) or Lydia as the shooter.
3. Do you buy that Sara would attempt suicide, or did that seem a little far-fetched?
Christine: Far-fetched. Sara seemed understandably upset but not suicidal. The girl fought her way back from a serious car accident and was building a new life. I just don't see losing Daniel as the thing that pushed her over the edge being that they'd only really shared a kiss and she hated him about two weeks ago. It felt as though the writers threw that in to push Daniel over the edge and justify the shooting but I wasn't buying it.
Miranda: Totally far-fetched and completely out of left field for all the reasons Christine said. She's come back from so much and she's going to commit suicide over Daniel marrying Emily? I don't buy it at all.
Steve: Do we know for a fact that she did try to kill herself? Was it shown? I can't place exactly how Daniel found out, and am wondering if he might be mistaken, by someone else's design or otherwise (someone please refresh my memory).
4. Why didn't Nolan have a universal remote?
Christine: Bigger question, why leave Patrick to his own devices? Why not hand him the right remote? Why leave the remote for the safe with everything else where anyone can grab it? I can't imagine why he'd be that careless.
Miranda: Even bigger question: Why would it be odd that a person would have a safe in the house, even if it's hidden behind a painting on a wall? I mean, I don't have a safe behind a painting on a wall, but safes in houses don't seem like that big a deal. But come on, Nolan. Don't let your guard down around this one. He killed A PRIEST for crying out loud.
Steve: A fair question, but what are the chances Patrick guesses the safe remote? And what do you think he'll do now that he's seen what's behind the painting?
5. Grade Revenge Season 3 so far.
Christine: B. Much better than last year although some of the plot points that got us to the big day felt contrived and I'm never quite sure who Emily is supposed to be in love with. Still it's had a lot of the fun of Revenge Season 1 once again.
Miranda: I'm giving it a B-. It's definitely better without the entire Initiative weighing it down, but there are so many things that just make me twitchy. It's fun and definitely a guilty pleasure.
Steve: I'll say B+ because while there have been some stronger episodes than others, the consistency of the overall storyline has worked for me. Everything built up to the shooting in compelling fashion, the result was climactic, and I'm intrigued by where it's going next.
