'Revenge' Recap: Tyler's Killer Is Revealed

But it’s not who you think! Plus, Emily might be totally losing her mind.

After last week’s intense engagement party, the Hamptons gang returned to their usual activities on the Feb. 29 episode of Revenge: Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) sipped some tea, Emily (Emily VanCamp) exposed a bunch of secrets, and Nolan (Gabriel Mann) lurked in every available shadow. Yes, everything was back to normal — minus the part where Daniel (Josh Bowman) was arrested for a murder he didn’t technically commit.

That’s right, kids! Despite the fact that Daniel did shoot Tyler (Ashton Holmes) once on the beach, it was actually Emily’s sensei Satoshi (Hiroyuki Sanada) who killed the eyebrow-less weasel with two follow-up shots. Of course, only Satoshi and Emily know the truth — and I wouldn’t expect him to help her prove Daniel’s innocence anytime soon. In fact, he threatened to “take care of” Amanda (Margarita Levieva) and Jack (Nick Wechsler), as they’re the two remaining loose ends in the beach debacle.

Just as the Grayson’s lawyer predicted, the judge decided to make an example out of one-percent Daniel, denying him bail and shipping him off to Ryker’s Island until his next court date. (It should be noted that, while Daniel looks good in a pair of handcuffs, he somehow looks even better behind bars. He’ll make some murderous gentleman very happy, I have no doubt.)

A few interesting alliances were formed this week: One between temporarily un-bittered exes Victoria and Conrad (Henry Czerny), and a second between Nolan and Ashley (Ashley Madekwe) — who totally thinks Daniel is guilty, by the way. Am I the only one suddenly interested in Victoria’s party planner-turned-PR minion? She’s going to use this whole situation to her advantage, and I can’t wait to see her unleash her inner snake.

So what’s my only complaint about this week’s episode? It’s the last new one we’ll be getting until April! ABC News is airing a two-week story about a real-life Revenge situation in the Hamptons on March 7 and 14 — but, honestly, that’s not going to cut it. I needs my Grayson fix and I needs it now!
