Plus, Nolan throws an unforgettable party and Emily’s plan goes up in flames!
Emily’s (Emily VanCamp) revenge agenda was almost going too perfectly — and on the Oct. 13 episode of Revenge, we realized that certain relationships are at stake, lives are on the line, and Emily is always one step ahead.
The episode got off to a crazy start as Charlotte (Christa B. Allen) walked into Conrad’s (Henry Czerny) bedroom, took a knife off his nightstand and stabbed him! Just kidding… it was just a nightmare. Looks like Conrad is suffering from major guilt — or maybe it’s just medicinal side effects.
Aiden & Victoria: Rebels With A Cause
Aiden (Barry Sloane) and Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) carried on their plan to take down Emily this week. “I can rattle her,” Aiden said, as he confessed to Victoria that Emily was seeing him behind Daniel’s (Joshua Bowman) back. I just cannot get behind Aiden’s hatred for Emily; it’s too severe.
After Aiden dropped the bomb about Emily’s betrayal, Victoria visited Daniel at his new office, where she told Daniel that it was Emily who bought Nolan’s (Gabriel Mann) $10 million home. She also renewed Daniel’s insecurity about Aiden.
Daniel rightfully confronted Emily about Victoria’s accusations, and while she admitted to buying Nolan’s house, she said nothing concerning Aiden. This was just one of many confrontations between Emily and Daniel.
He challenged her again about Aiden after he installed an alarm system in Emily’s house. She told him there was nothing between them and that she chose him, and he also admitted that he shot Aiden back on last’s season finale. Whoa!
All Aboard The S.S. Ross
Nolan was planning a huge housewarming party — and who wouldn’t? His house is to die for! Nolan’s party was capped at 100 exclusive guests and included all of our favorite Hamptonites. Of course, his party planning had ulterior motives.
Meanwhile, Margot (Karine Vanasse) wanted Nolan on the cover of her new magazine, and Daniel wasn’t buying into the idea. She started to wander around The Stowaway and found out that Nolan and Jack (Nick Wechsler) were friends. Since she didn’t score an invite, she pretty much forced Jack to take her to Nolan’s party. Charlotte also helped Margot’s cause by telling Jack she’s a good match because she doesn’t know about their history.
In total party prep, Nolan hit up the Hamptons pool, where he encountered Patrick (Justin Hartley) getting his tan on. Nolan discovered Patrick was Victoria’s son and invited him to his party. Patrick then had lunch with Victoria and Emily showed up to deliver Victoria’s invitation and to see Conrad. Emily dropped the hint about Nolan and Patrick’s interaction, much to Victoria’s horror. She told Patrick not to trust them because Emily and Nolan are “thick as thieves.” Victoria sure is right about that!
At the party, the drama pretty much hit the fan. First and foremost, however, Nolan’s outfit was incredible.
Emily was not pleased that Jack brought Margot. He was looking super-sharp in his suit, so her displeasure was understandable. These two are still on bad terms; he’s still not trusting Emily nor buying into her revenge agenda.
It wasn’t until Victoria showed up that the drama really got intense. She brought along Aiden and Emily was beyond shocked. Emily and Aiden talked and as Victoria pointed out, they fought as if they are in love. Daniel was not pleased with Victoria and Aiden told Emily, “Whether you like it or now, I am here to stay.” Yes, please stay, Aiden. Stay forever!
Emily was flustered and screamed to everyone that the Graysons were bankrupt. You don’t mess with Ems and get away with it. As Victoria stomped away, the look on Emily’s face said it all. Emily and Aiden are not enemies. More on that later.
Emily Plays God
Emily already felt bad about taking down Father Paul (James LeGros) and was now trying to get Conrad to confess. Father Paul headed to the confession box and it was Emily on the other side! I loved this. She told him that he has to earn her forgiveness and keep her secret (she said she was Emily, not Amanda, by the way). If he helped her, she would save his reputation. If not, she would make him pay. She left him a photo of all those involved in the David Clarke conspiracy and a plane ticket.
Father Paul went along with her plan and attempted to get Conrad to confess. Conrad’s condition was getting worse and he welcomed death. Father Paul told him that by clearing David’s name, he would save his relationship with Charlotte by giving her father back.
He also had some words of wisdom to Emily. He said she wasn’t God and she needed to let go of this vendetta before she lost herself. It touched Emily, but not enough for her to reconsider.
Emily found her way back to The Stowaway and thanked Jack for everything he’s done for her and Charlotte. Jack started to warm up to Emily only to have Margot interrupt. Seriously, Margot? Just get out of town.
Conrad did decide to turn himself in to the authorities. He wanted to redeem himself before he died. Victoria was appalled. She called him a coward and slapped him. She told him that if he got in his car that it would be the last thing he did. Man, Victoria’s words pack a punch.
Warning: Danger Ahead
Victoria and Aiden continued to try and uncover Emily’s secrets. Victoria was just loving having someone to talk about her hatred for Emily with. However, Aiden had some bad news. Initially, he believed that it was Emily who had Victoria’s money, but he was wrong. Victoria didn’t care; she wanted Aiden to stay because no one can unhinge Emily like he could.
Too bad Aiden has been playing Victoria all along! While Emily was on the beach, Aiden showed up and said Victoria took the bait. Emily wasn’t pleased that he told Victoria about their relationship, but she was really just glad he was back. So am I. I am beyond ecstatic. She wondered why he didn’t tell her that Daniel shot him and she asked to see his scar. They almost kissed, but stopped in fear of being caught. I knew they were working together. Aiden’s love for Emily is unwavering. I honestly don’t think he’d every truly betray her.
Emily believed her revenge agenda was really back on track. She had faith in Conrad. That faith was short-lived when she found Conrad’s car up in flames and an unconscious Father Paul thrown from the vehicle. At first, she thought Conrad was dead, but he showed up bloodied and confused. Either Victoria is psychic or she planned this.
Oh, Emily, your revenge plans are getting dangerous. You better watch it.
