This show used to be so good. The storyline that Emily wanted to con the Graysons does not make sense. She was already rich. When she worked that New Year’s Eve banquet, she just got out of juvy. It could have easily been explained that she wanted to clean up her act that time. Nolan should have stuffed her infinity box with something else other than her being a con artist. Maybe darkness/being lost when she was in juvy etc. anything. I don’t see how Emily can recover from this fall. Daniel doting on her was great to watch. Having three men around fighting over her was great to watch too. Now it is all gone. Bad decision writers. Emily is wealthy, why does she need to con the Graysons?

The Sara Minello story line – bore! The girl looks cachectic (eat something!). So, women in america, after your boyfriend leaves you behind (for years), you in pain and suffering, one word, one reconnection and all you love him all over again. Really? She looks pathetic.

Emily could have ended everything by announcing in the press conference that Victoria Grayson shot her or Daniel shot her so she can see Victoria squirm. Ultimate justice, an innocent goes to jail for life like her father. The Graysons are already broke so she could have sailed off the sunset with Aiden. But she didn’t. Lydia Davis should not have come back. She was dead and should have remained dead.

What happened to the initiative? This was a good storyline. I thought the plan was to take them down since they are responsible for the death of Aiden’s sister and Emily’s father. They just fell off the face of the planet. The iniative moving on from the Graysons was not good.

Emily being sterile – bad! It would have been better if she was really pregnant when she was shot and it was really Daniel’s child.

I don’t know how this show can recover – Daniel hates Emily (I don’t see this being better), Victoria and Conrad, broke but still lives in a mansion. Aiden and Niko – okay, well unless she finds out that he killed her father. I can’t see how she can know that unless Aiden confesses (bore again!).

Nolan and Patrick – good looking guys. Okay, you can be eye candy for they show. Nolan, will you forgive Patrick after he hit you? You have more sense than that!

If the plan of the writers is to have Jack, Emily, and Carl live together forever (yeah right). This would be a failed ending.

Okay, Voulez, what is the whole idea of Margeaux being there? To expose the Graysons? Well, she is not doing a good job. Charlotte, you need a man in your life again.

The cool thing about Revenge was Emily being in control. knows her gut, trusts it, and destroys. It was good to see she had Alias type moves too.

I hope Revenge finds its way again. It is lost now like how they have written Emily. or worse it could have an ending like the show Lost.

Just because you don’t like the storyline doesn’t mean it’s bad writing. Part of the stuff that Nolan filled the fake infinity box with shows that she doesn’t have as much money as she was claiming to have. To people like the Graysons, it’s not all about money. It’s about status, and power. That is a reason to want to be a Grayson, regardless of money. It’s also something that people like Victoria and Daniel would believe because it’s something that happens to people of status all the time. The juvy story wouldn’t work because Victoria and Daniel just wouldn’t believe it, and it wouldn’t do her any good. Making her look like a grifter who was aspiring to higher status confirms what Victoria already thought, and gives them no reason to think there might actually be something else going on (ie that she is Amanda Clarke)

Emily COULD have ended everything by claiming it was Victoria, but that doesn’t give us a show to watch, now does it? It also doesn’t keep her protected from any of the rest of the Graysons. Telling the press it was Lydia does several things for Emily. A. It shows the Graysons she isn’t going to just try to destroy them because she can, therefor making her less of a threat and making it less likely that they will try to kill her B. It means that Daniel can’t just divorce her, which keeps her around to continue her revenge and C. It’s blackmail, and an insurance policy.

As far as the initiative, you may have liked that storyline, but the majority of viewers didn’t, as is evidenced by most of the comments on articles like this one from last season. Going back to Emily setting her sights on the Graysons was something that most viewers wanted to happen, because the Initiative took most of the Revenge type stuff that made the show great season 1 away. They did just kind of drop it, but just because you liked the storyline doesn’t mean it was successful for the show.

Emily being sterile isn’t a bad plot point. In fact, it was basically the only reason for Emily to re-ignite her hate for the family and want to take them down. They covered it perfectly with her line about how they took her father, her mother, and now her only chance at having a family in the future. You say it would have been better if Emily was really pregnant… but do you really think Emily would have allowed herself to get pregnant with Daniel’s child? And would it really have seemed plausible for it to have happened right when it needed to in order to keep Daniel from leaving her? A fake pregnancy fit perfectly with the way Emily operates.

Daniel and Emily being adversaries now is actually a welcome new dynamic in the show as far as I’m concerned. Much more interesting than watching him be a naive idiot who she can use. We haven’t seen them like this before, which adds something fresh and gives her new problems to address. Personally, I think it will do great things for the show.

Did not think the initiative story line was all that bad plot wise, it just did not fit the storyline from season 1, it was like it was a completely different show. The way Season1 ended, the initiative was way over our heads. Bringing back the mother and the foster brother should have been explored more similar to the Fauxmanda storyline b/c their character build could of flowed w/ season 1. Although I don’t like Daniel and her together, I do love their war with each other as newlyweds. Season 3 to me flows w/ Season 1, but still not impressed w/ another non Grayson child for Victoria, Aiden’s return did not make sense, and Margaux was not nearly what I expected, when she was 1st on there, thought she would be more spicier. The original cast are actually bringing back the spice to the show.

I love Revenge, but I think the writers decision to make Emily sterile was the worse decision for the show. It kinda took away my hope for Emily to one day have a happily ever after. Very disappointed!!!

First, Niko’s dad wanted to kill Aiden. Aiden had to kill him. After all the things Aiden did for Emily, it was not fair to leave her. I wish I could see team Aiden, Nolan and Emily again. I tried but I couldn’t like Jack as much as Aiden. I hope Niko dosen’t do such a stupid thing and kill him. I love Aiden:(((

I really hate the way they are writing daniel, he is the victim here, yet they are writing him as hateful and too dark. He was not the cause of what happened to david Clark.

He may not have been the cause of what happened to David Clarke, but her plan was never to take him down. Just to use him to take down his parents. Shooting Emily now makes him one of her targets. Daniel has always been a bit slimy (he found out the truth about Conrad and what they did to David, and protected them and hid the evidence. He also lied to the detective about the priest’s death so Emily couldn’t finger Conrad as the person responsible). He always claimed to hate his parents and the awful things they did, but when tested always acted just like a Grayson. I think he was always going to end up this way.

The reason why Victoria didn’t find the stuff about Emily’s real identity as Amanda in the box is because Nolan took it out before it was stolen. This was made possible through the walkie talkie Jack gave Emily in the stuffed puppy, Emily was able to contact Nolan and alert him of Patrick’s plan before he did it.Basically Victoria didn’t discover anything she didn’t already know in the box as she had found out on Emily’s wedding night that Emily had been planning to con them for years.

I really hope Jack is more in the loop now that Aiden is out. Nico is going to kill him when she finds out what he did but at least there will be plenty of hot scenes between them before that happens!!

I love Aiden but I’m SO GLAD Emily finally cut him loose. He acts like he loves her unconditionally but he doesn’t & he thinks that he knows her & understands her when it is very clear in this episode how little he does of either. Jack & Nolan are the only team she needs, that whole stuffed puppy move was ingenious. After what they’ve taken from her, they are going to pay & it is going to be AWESOME to watch!

I’m glad Aiden’s out of the picture. The fact that he’s starting something with the daughter of the guy he murdered just tells us everything we need to know. Emily is better off!!
