The new season of Revenge starts with some surprises and for me disappointments. In the first 60 seconds Emily is shown in a wedding dress drinking a glass of wine. She apologizes to someone and then she’s shot three times. Into the water she falls and floats for a second before the show rewinds two months earlier. Okay, so I already expected this to happen because of course they can’t get rid of Emily in the first episode right? So Daniel and Emily are preparing for a wedding that Emily keeps trying to put off until the end of the episode, when she chooses August 8th for the date.
Before that, Emily gets Nolan out of jail and buys him a house down the shore from her, which Nolan is grateful for but by no means will he hack another computer system again after going to jail for it. Emily understands and Nolan finds another way to help his girl out which he does with a show stopping performance. Emily is hosting Conrad’s congratulations ceremony for becoming governor. In the mist of it Nolan drops in literally, with a parachute strapped to his back, he bust out of his flying gear only to stand in an all white tuxedo. Smoothly he hands Emily a toxin in which she pours into Conrad’s drink and as a result he passes out during his speech.
The doctor (hired by Emily) tells the family Conrad has Huntington’s disease and he is dying quickly. He tells the family Conrad should take it easy and by his new job as governor causing so much stress he should step down. But we all know Conrad’s arrogance will last until he takes his last breath. Victoria is her same deceitful self and so is Ashley who has the audacity to try and black mail Emily. (Insert laugh here) I am shaking my head at Ashley because she is black mailing the wrong one. Does she know who she’s dealing with? Obviously not, but she is soon reminded that this game is not hers. While Emily put her pawns into place to get ready to knock the king and queen off their throne, someone is putting their own pawns in place.
Jack surprises us, well me anyway. Just when I thought him and Emily would have a secret love affair, he pumps her breaks and tells her he never wants to see her again. Emily is crushed and so am I. Ouch! That hurt big time, I was in love with them after that passionate kiss they shared but the blow off was harsh. Wow Jack I didn’t know you had it in you. I have no idea what Victoria’s son Patrick has cooking up his sleeve but I’ve got my eye on him. Charlotte is all grown up and has a attitude like her mom. She’ll make a good Grayson after all.
What I didn’t like about this episode is, the only mention of the baby Charlotte was carrying was when Victoria said she lost the baby. I was thinking REALLY? That’s it? Booooooo! Then they didn’t even give Deckland a funeral, I mean it was so over looked to me. Double boooooo! Come on ABC you could’ve came better than that. I feel it would’ve been heartfelt, and would’ve struck a nerve in Jack and Charlotte. I wanted to see her lose it when she found out Deckland didn’t make it. But we got none of that. Instead the show went on starting months later like all of that was irrelevant.
The premiere did end with a bang. We all want to know the big question, who shoots Emily? There are many possible answers to this question. My sister and I were debating this topic and we were left stumped. We figured it could be Jack, he has a reason to be mad at her. It could be Charlotte when she finds out Emily is really her half sister and has been lying all this time just to destroy her family. It could be Daniel, maybe Emily and Jack fall in love, get married, and Daniel is pissed and wants revenge. It could very well be Aiden! He shows up on Victoria Grayson’s balcony and when she questions why he’s there he says he wants to destroy her next door neighbor (meaning Emily) like she does. At this point I almost drop my laptop. What in the universe is he doing! He just as well could be jealous and brokenhearted to the core and that would definitely give him a reason to shoot Emily. So with all these possible scenarios who do you think shot Emily?
