Also, there was some serious Hamptons heartbreak and a shocking confession!
Emily’s (Emily VanCamp) revenge plot thickened in the best way possible on the Nov. 3 episode of Revenge. She finally revealed her ultimate plan to take down Victoria (Madeleine Stowe), Nolan (Gabriel Mann) had a troubling decision to make, and Daniel (Joshua Bowman) got a crazy blast from the past!
This week’s promo had me worried about Emily’s BFF, Nolan. After she stopped by his house to find broken glass and a trashed house, she ran around trying to find him. She discovered him in the bathtub just relaxing after a wild night with Patrick (Justin Hartley). Whew!
Emily told Nolan to end his new relationship, but Nolan wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye. He’d finally found someone whom he thought understood his outcast nature and doesn’t want to give that up. Emily and Nolan don’t usually disagree, but their friendship has been building up to a serious confrontation, and we certainly got one tonight. More on that later.
Sayonara, Grayson Manor!
What a way to start the morning! At the Grayson family breakfast, Conrad (Henry Czerny) broke the news that Grayson Manor had been bought and sold! Emily was distressed at the news, because the house was supposed to be command central for the wedding and take down. She offered to buy the house, but Conrad said it was a done deal. Emily stomped off to the pool house to discuss her next move with Aiden (Barry Sloane).
During their heated discussion, they have a crazy-hot almost kiss. Because let’s face it, that’s what is really important. Team Aimily!
As always, Emily took matters into her own hands and faked beach erosion damage on her house. This task included Aiden flexing his muscles and sharing a beer with Emily. Oh, they also make-out and it’s super hot. It’s revealed that once Emily’s plan is complete that she and Aiden will jet off to a beach in the Maldives. All I want is for Emily and Aiden to be together, but seeing as this is Revenge there will likely be a struggle to their happy ending.
Conrad’s real estate agent freaked and didn’t want any part of their “toxic property.” Looks like Emily’s plan worked!
Charlotte (Christa B. Allen) showed her true Grayson colors tonight as she began some serious scheming. During errands with Daniel, they stopped by a bakery. What Daniel didn’t know was one of the employees was his ex, Sarah, the girl Daniel almost killed in a car accident. She freaked at the sight of Daniel and screamed he would always be the “clueless frat boy.” Ouch, Sarah. This was understandable because Conrad and Victoria sued her and now she has to work to pay her medical bills.
Daniel was shocked at the Sarah sighting. It’s clear that he had no idea about Sarah’s current predicament.
Charlotte called up the bakery and said Sarah’s behavior was inexcusable. She was fired, but Charlotte got her a job at The Stowaway! Even though Sarah claimed to hate Daniel, she told Charlotte that her heart still skipped a beat when she saw him. (Yours and mine too, honey.)
Daniel and Sarah did face each other at The Stowaway. He admitted that he had no idea that she wasn’t set for life. He apologized for her being cheated and wanted to make it right. There was some brewing chemistry between those two, just like Charlotte wanted! Charlotte is dead-set on ruining Emily’s marriage to Daniel, but she doesn’t know who she is messing with!
Nothing Like A Good Romance & Bromance
Nolan tried to break things off with Patrick by saying life had gotten suddenly complicated. Patrick thought they had agreed that Victoria and Emily wouldn’t come between them. “I don’t know why they get a vote,” Patrick said. Hallelujah for those words of wisdom. They kiss and it’s just the best. I just really hope Patrick isn’t playing Nolan.
Now that Nolan thought he’d met the one, Jack (Nick Wechsler) was ready to knock some sense into him. However, Nolan realized that the only way Jack would know about Patrick tampering with Conrad’s car was if Emily told him. Nolan then let it slip that he too knew Emily’s true identity.
Later, Jack stopped by Nolan’s to continue their conversation. Jack asked how long he’d know about Emily. “I’ve never not known,” he said. He just never realized how big her revenge agenda was. Nolan was ready to say goodbye to his friendship with Jack, but Jack said that Nolan’s his friend and they hug. This bromance is almost too cute to take!
However, Jack still doesn’t trust Patrick and he has to end Nolan’s short-lived relationship. In a cease fire attempt with Conrad, Jack told him that it was Patrick who messed with the brakes and not Charlotte. This gave Conrad leverage with Victoria, even after she found their missing fortune. In order to save Patrick from Conrad’s wrath, she sent him away, but would bring him back when the time was right.
Earlier, Victoria had Patrick put the gallery in his name so Conrad couldn’t touch it. She wasn’t angry that Patrick had tried to kill Conrad. Only Victoria would be happy that one of her children tried to kill her husband.
All Is Revealed
First off, Emily revealed that the honeymoon was to be a weekend cruise to Nantucket for immediate family. That puts a lot more people on the boat than thought and so many more suspects!
After letting Jack into the inner circle, Nolan broke the news to Emily. She was pissed that Jack went rogue with his Patrick plan because it put him at risk. Nolan let Emily know that her revenge plans have left him isolated and that all he ever wanted was friendship. My heart hurts for Nolan.
Emily shared her worries with Aiden about Nolan’s news. Everything felt off balance because she was caught between two worlds. Aiden reassured her that this would all be over soon and he couldn’t wait to runaway with her. Earlier, Emily said she wasn’t going to let anything take away her future with Aiden. But can she really leave Nolan and Jack behind?
Later, Emily dropped in on Nolan and Jack’s boys night. She apologized to who she said were the “two of the most important people in my life.” She told them she had to disappear after the wedding. Jack’s face showed he was not okay with this plan.
Emily then dropped the bombshell that her wedding day would also be the day that Victoria went down for her murder!
It’s okay if you have to pick your jaw up off the floor because I’m still looking for mine. Just when I think this show can’t get any better, Revenge proves me wrong.
