While it isn’t everything I thought it would be “Legacy” still provides interesting insight to the moment when Emily (Emily VanCamp) decides to get revenge on those that setup David (James Tupper) and covered it up.

‘Revenge’ Review: Chaos

Now we’ve come full circle and ended up where the pilot started and boy has it been a fun ride. An episode full of shocks and surprises coupled with the usual amount of manipulation that comes from some of the characters. “Chaos” manages to live up to its episode title.

I had a feeling that we weren’t going to see the last of the character and in some way I hoped he would return. Holmes has been brilliant playing the role of the unstable man.
