'Revenge' Recap: Two Sex Tapes Are Found! Was The Right One Released?

Geez, is anyone faithful on TV anymore? I guess if they were, there’d be no need for ‘Revenge!’ (See what I did there?)

Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) threw a major curveball at us on the Oct. 5 episode of ABC’s Revenge when she sent everyone a mass “forgivesies” text and moved away from the Hamptons. JK! She continued to ruin the lives of all the people around her, this week targeting Senator Tom Kingsley (Yancey Arias), the man who prosecuted her father. So how did she do it? I’ve got three words for you, friends: Baby. Mama. Drama.

Being the little shopaholic she is, Emily bought the building where Senator Kingley’s mistress lived and had a few security cameras installed as part of a new renovation. Not only did she leak footage of their sexcapades to the press, but Emily also had the senator’s (now pregnant) mistress flown into the Hamptons, which prompted him to step down from politics. Damn, she’s good.

Meanwhile, Declan (Connor Paolo) plotted a little revenge of his own this week. With help from Nolan (Gabriel Mann), he hacked Adam’s (Robbie Amell) webcam and caught him cheating on Charlotte (Christa B. Allen) with a blonde chick. But rather than destroy Adam for good, Declan instead e-mailed Charlotte a cute little video about the ocean and the sunset and blah, blah, blah. I think I speak for everyone when I say: What the hell, Declan?! This show isn’t called Forgiveness — release that tape, already!

No episode of Revenge, however, would be complete without a deadly dose of bitchy behavior from the Queen of the Hamptons, Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) — and she really outdid herself this week. After giving her cheating husband the stinkiest of stink-eyes, she directed her wrath towards Daniel (Joshua Bowman), letting him know exactly how she felt about his budding relationship with Emily.

So what did you think of this week’s episode? Did Victoria really try to save Emily’s dad from prison? And what’s up with Daniel’s sketchy Harvard roommate suddenly dropping by? Drop your best speculations in the comments section.
