‘Revenge’ Review: Absolution

“I’ll kill him” are the strong words Emily (Emily VanCamp) utters as she tells Nolan (Gabriel Mann) what she’ll do to the man that killed her father. Family is one of the reasons for people’s actions on Revenge; whether it’s to protect or get revenge. This is very evident in “Absolution.” Fresh from finding out Conrad (Henry Czerny) played a part in David’s (James Tupper) murder, Emily is on the trail to finding out the truth. She finds David’s assistant who also happens to be related to Nolan. A fake death wasn’t that hard to hide seeing as Emily found out within a couple of days. How many times is Nolan going to find himself on Emily’s angry side? It doesn’t last for long but for that split moment it looks like she’s gonna kill him or never call him again.

‘Revenge’ Review: Justice

Well things took a turn that I didn’t seem coming. For all my questioning and the disgraceful things that the Grayson’s have done, I have to admit that I didn’t even think that they would be involved in David Clarke’s (James Tupper) murder in prison. The writers might have tied Daniel’s (Joshua Bowman) trial up but they’re heading to something bigger, with the episodes leading up to the season finale.

‘Revenge’ Review: Doubt

If you’re like me, then you know the wait for a new episode has been too long. The good news is that there are new episodes every week until the season finale. The way everything is played out in “Doubt” shows us we’re in for a real treat.

Revenge 117

The Grayson’s are in damage control mode as they work with attorney Benjamin Brooks (Courtney B. Vance) on Daniel’s (Joshua Bowman) defense. There’s nothing better than a parents love for their child. If your Daniel, this includes getting beat up in jail so you can be released on house arrest. Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) calls on her go to guy, Lee (Derek Ray) to set up the beating. Emily (Emily VanCamp) hasn’t forgotten that Lee is the same guy who beat up Jack (Nick Wechsler). You wouldn’t want to meet a revenge filled Emily in a dark alley as she gives Lee a piece of his own medicine.

‘Revenge’ Review: Scandal

“Scandal” sees the repercussions of what happened on the beach at the engagement party for Daniel (Joshua Bowman) and Emily (Emily VanCamp). The episode sees Courtney B. Vance guest star as Daniel’s attorney.

Emily watching another man being arrested at her house while the Grayson’s are on the porch strikes certain similarities to what happened to Emily’s father, David (James Tupper). The only difference is with Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) and Conrad (Henry Czerny) is that instead of just idly standing by, they are actively trying to stop Daniel from being taken away.
