The winter finale of ‘Revenge’ revealed the new CEO of Grayson Global — and yet another crafty side of Victoria.

On the Dec. 2 episode of Revenge, everyone in the Hamptons was on edge before the voting that would determine the new CEO of Grayson Global. A new face in town named Salvador was the swing vote, and while he initially leaned towards Daniel (Joshua Bowman), the Graysons had a plan to protect their son from replacing Conrad (Henry Czerny), thus protecting him from The Initiative.

Thanks to Marco — Nolan’s (Gabriel Mann) former employee and ex-boyfriend — Daniel gained 51 percent of NolCorp after blackmailing and threatening Nolan with a criminal investigation based on the missing $500 million! After hearing the news, Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) turned the tables on her son after Nolan delivered a sex tape of Ashley (Ashley Madekwe) and Conrad. By promising not to tell Daniel, Victoria manipulated her to sleep with Salvador in order to secure his vote for Conrad. Man, Ashley sure gets around!

Because all things must go Emily Thorne’s (Emily VanCamp) way, Aiden lured Daniel to Salvador’s room, where he found Ashley and photographed them in nothing but bathrobes. After Daniel threatened to show the picture to his wife, who controlled his money, Salvador promised his vote — and he won the CEO position at Grayson Global!

The Ryan brothers — the business partners who are supposedly helping Jack (Nick Weschler) and Declan (Connor Paolo) believed that Jack’s dad murdered their father, but he only covered for his friend Matt Duncan (as seen in last week’s flashback episode). All along, their plans were set in motion in order to get a little payback with the Porter family. However, it was Mr. Duncan who suffered a severe beating from the Ryans, landing him in the hospital.

Despite his parents’ warnings, Daniel gained the CEO position at Grayson Global, and he’s now a pawn in the Initiative’s game of domination. Nolan also has more control over Daniel and the company than he realized. Along with Emily, he planned to control Grayson Global from the inside.

Finally, the shock of a lifetime occurred occurred, setting up an interesting twist for the show’s January return: Emily Thorne and Victoria Grayson… will become partners! Emily will have leverage and Victoria will manipulate Daniel — who is still head over heels for Miss Thorne — in order to protect him.

Can’t wait for January, right?

What i do not understood is actually how you are not actually much more well-liked than you may be now. You are very intelligent. You realize thus considerably relating to this subject, made me personally consider it from a lot of varied angles. Its like men and women aren’t fascinated unless its one thing to do with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs great. Always maintain it up!

I love how they leak just the right info to keep you salivating for more. I can’t wait until January! I was a little disappointed to see that Emily is going to manipulate Daniel by rekindling their relationship, which would be sad for me because I can’t get enough of Emily and Aiden. Aiden is now my favorite character next to Emily! But when the show leaked photos of Aiden and Emily kissing on the beach in a future episode I am soooo excited to see more! This show is so good I really hope they have a 3rd season, if they cancel this show it would be a huge shame because it is one of the only shows with an intelligent plot and superb acting! Whoever cast Barry Sloane as Aiden is brilliant, and he has added so much to a show that already was mind-blowing. I hope that we will see more of this great British actor in the future…maybe in movies? I hope…

This show is always entertaining to watch, so last night’s finale was no different. I am very intrigued to see what comes of Daniel’s new position, I am sure it won’t be long until he learns of the Initiative. A coworker at DISH and I have been theorizing about how Victoria and Emily will try to protect him. I can’t wait to see if any of our theories turn out to be true, January can’t come quick enough! With my busy schedule, I am really glad I didn’t miss last night’s episode with my DISH Hopper. I have my DVR set to automatically record all of the episodes of my favorite shows. The 2,000 hours of recording space is more than enough room for everything I watch. It seems like things are going to get very interesting for a lot of characters when Revenge finally returns. Hopefully Victoria and Emily can protect Daniel, the Initiative is a spiteful company, and I am sure they will not hesitate to take him out if he becomes a problem.

What the hell is this? Why don’t you mention how much the product you’re advertizing costs? Oh, because no one would want it!
