When everything you love has been stolen from you, consider my story as you embark on your own journey of revenge. And always remember, what goes around, comes around.

I consider myself lucky. Most morality tales don't have a happy ending. For some reason karma saw fit to spare me. But not without leaving deeply etched wounds.

Upon embarking upon a path of revenge, Confucius warns that one should dig two graves. Confucius was right. The second of the two graves was meant for me. I was only saved by my father's infinite love. I know now that revenge only brings darkness. I couldn't see the light until I considered my father's advice to try and forgive. It's not easy but my father once said that nothing worth doing ever is. Well, with one exception.

When I was a little girl the delineation between good and evil was as clear as night and day. But as life grows complicated that line blurs and we learn to justify our actions when we believe we've crossed it. If we aren't careful, those choices can fill us with darkness leaving us destined to never see light again.

Last question, Margaux, and then I start with the cheekbones...

Emily: If something goes wrong I don't want you to be complicit.
David: 'If something goes wrong?' Look around you. Everything's gone wrong.

Jack: The other night I heard that you came to the airport to tell me not to leave and I just have to know...is that true?
Emily: Yes. I wanted you to stay. I want you to stay.

Nolan: So, what does the world sans Victoria Grayson even look like?
Emily: Revenge-free. And I didn't even have to snap her neck!

Emily: What was I supposed to do, Nolan? You know how much he's suffered because of me.
Nolan: And still he chose you. He love you, Ems. He had the guts to open his heart. Can you?

For the first time in my life, there are no more battles to fight.

Emily: It's over.
David: What is?
Emily: Everything. This whole damn war.

You know sometimes I'm so focused on the fight I don't see what's right in front of me. I should've seen that you were hurting too. I mean, yeah, I'm pissed, but you're not going to lose me. We're a team. We're going to get through this because that's what we do. Nice suit.

Revenge Quotes

In my lifetime, I've come to understand that there are three ways for a person to disappear. The first is to die. The second is to lie. And the last is to be reborn. It was after my former husband's six months ago that my transformation began. I made my peace with those who have wronged me and with those who I've wronged. No one moreso than Emily Thorne.

Victoria

[to Margaux] Someone once told me it's our decisions that define who we are. Well, you've got a decision to make.
