'Revenge' Recap: Emily Makes A Dangerous New Enemy! She'll Need A Bigger Sharpie.

Plus, Jack made another major play for Emily this week. Was his speech enough to sway you from Team Daniel?

The Empress of White Girl Problems, Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp), has been revenge-ing her way up and down the Hamptons all season without breaking a sweat — but she and her impeccably dressed sidekick Nolan (Gabriel Mann) became aware of a powerful enemy in Frank (Max Martini) on the Oct. 26 episode of Revenge. And I’m talking lurks-in-the-bushes powerful.

Of course, Frank isn’t without a few enemies of his own. Victoria’s (Madeleine Stowe) super-faithful hubby Conrad (Henry Czerny) snuck a peek at the hidden camera footage from Lydia’s (Amber Valletta) apartment, and now he’s convinced Frank is too dangerous to be trusted. If only he knew his wife was the one who orchestrated his attack — and that they totally eye-humped each other in the kitchen earlier in the evening. Whatever, I ship it.

(Side note: How is Lydia still alive?! I can understand if she just fell off a building, but that insane skank landed on top of a CAR! Either she shares Sammy the Wonder Dog’s powers of immortality, or she’s the luckiest adulteress ever.)

Emily’s love life took another complicated turn this week as Jack (Nick Wechsler) attempted to seduce her with a well-crafted, metaphor-laced speech about sailing. But like myself, Emily remains an unwavering member of Team Daniel (Joshua Bowman.)

And speaking of Daniel, you’ve really got to pity the guy. Not only does he get shot at the end of the summer — oh relax, people, it was in the pilot — but his good buddy Tyler (Ashton Holmes) drugged him on his first night working at the bar. Crazy-pants then proceeded to bang his head on a pole and blame Tyler for the injuries. Whatever that creeper has up his sleeve, Emily better whip out her Red Sharpie of Death and nip it in the bud. Pronto.

Lastly, I’d like to give kudos to Ashley (Ashley Madekwe) for being the first person on this show to ever point out how old Sam the Wonder Dog must be. She may not have given his exact age, but she did refer to him as “that old dog.” And, honestly, that’s good enough for me.

And now, for the question that must be asked every week…

I get that Jack is the character we’re supposed to love but I actually can’t stand him. Plus, he named his boat after someone he knew when he was like six or something…it’s as if they’re trying to force an ‘epic couple’ down your throat when really it is just ridiculous. The boat naming epic couple has already happened and they were truly epic…that’s Seth & Summer :)

It is not Daniel who was shot at the end of the summer, it’s Nolan. I will make a calculated guess. The person who shot him was Frank.

In one of Nick Wechsler’s interviews, he mentioned dragging Nolan’s dead body on the beach.

Hello, you missed telling the most important part about Tyler… he is GAY and he date rape drugged Daniel and tried to make the move on him when he got him in bed. The reason he hates Emily and is constantly trying to get Daniel to drink (drunk straight man, opportunity) is because he is in love with him. That makes Tyler even more devious and an even stronger enemy to Emily. Make sure not to leave out important plot points in your reviews, a characters motivations are very important to the story.

Another thing – Emily’s eyebrows are so prominent when she ties her hair back, such as during the 4th July party. It’s so distracting.

I don’t like the character of Jack at all. Just because he’s poor, it doesn’t make him a good person or morally superior, as he has demonstrated by forcing Emily to an ultimatum. Also, his love for Emily makes no sense whatsoever – he’s only seen her a couple of times. I hope Emily can just get over her feelings for Jack. Better yet, I hope Jack killed Daniel and Emily revenges his ass. Gah I hate him so much.

Hey, if Lydia can survive falling off a roof onto a car, there might still be hope for Daniel yet… :)
