‘Revenge’ Recap: Emily Finally Exposes Her Secret Identity

Sun, November 11, 2012 11:30pm EDT by 2 Comments

Emily came clean this week, but as always, her big reveal came with a dangerous price tag.

On the Nov. 11 episode of Revenge, Mason Treadwell (Roger Bart) came up with his wackiest theory yet: Emily (Emily VanCamp) and Amanda (Margarita Levieva) were… lovers! Amanda fed him a bogus story, claiming Emily was obsessed with her during their time at Alleywood and that she was her stalker. She also attempted to kill him, only to be stopped by Emily — who finally spilled her secret!

Back at Grayson Manor, Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) and Conrad (Henry Czerny) were determined to stand up to The Initiative, while Daniel (Joshua Bowman) went snooping for David Clarke’s record of personal investments. However, as usual, Emily was one step ahead. She told Aiden to help Daniel take over Grayson Global in order to draw out The Initiative, Nolan (Gabriel Mann) handed over David’s original check to NolCorp to Aiden, allowing everything to fall perfectly into Emily’s hands. During an investor luncheon, as Conrad gave a bogus speech about how thankful he was for the powerful people around him, Daniel plotted with members of The Initiative to replace his father as CEO.

While Emily tried to take care of Mason Treadwell, her plans — basically for the first time ever — went totally awry. She manipulated Mason to tell Kara Clarke, who was supposed to be leaving town anyway, that he had urgent information about Gordon Murphy and that she needed to take off immediately. However, Mason took it upon himself to tell Kara that her David was merely a victim, and that the Graysons paid him to tell lies. Since Kara was off her medication, needless to say, things got a little crazy!

She snuck into Grayson Manor and pulled a gun on Victoria and Conrad, the the two people who framed David for being a terrorist! At Kara’s request for a confession, the terrified couple told her how The Initiative planned to blame Conrad for the fall of Flight 197, so he made a deal to frame David instead. Aiden stopped her from killing the Graysons at the last minute, and Emily arranged for her mother to finally — no, really — disappear.

Let’s face it: Mason dug his own grave when he tried to mess with Emily! She framed him for Gordon’s murder and had him arrested. Emily told him he was to give a full confession and serve time for the murder, since she has the one thing that could someday set him free: her confession about being Amanda and her plot for revenge! Obviously, Mason couldn’t turn down an offer to write THE BOOK OF THE CENTURY, so he confessed.

But just when we thought things were finally calming down in the Hamptons, Emily and Aiden finally shared their inevitable passionate kiss!

Revenge returns with a Thanksgiving episode Nov., when we can all give thanks for Emily Thorne’s master plan of Revenge — and that we don’t have a family like the Graysons!

Are you glad Emily and Aiden finally kissed? Do you think Mason will really honor his word? Drop a comment with your thoughts and theories!
