Looks like Victoria and Emily have even more trouble on their hands!
An ocean of secrets was revealed on the Nov. 17 episode of Revenge. Jack (Nick Wechsler) made a heartfelt confession to Emily (Emily VanCamp), Charlotte (Christa B. Allen) got herself into some deep trouble — and someone returned from the dead!
It’s A Love Shack, Baby
The episode opened with a flashback to the summer of 2010, when Daniel (Joshua Bowman) and Sarah (Annabelle Stephenson) were very hot and heavy. Then, back in present day, we pretty much got the same thing. Daniel may be getting married to Emily, but he only has eyes for Sarah.
He even showed up to the farmer’s market looking super sexy to flirt with her. “I haven’t been able to get you out of my head since the Fourth of July,” he said. Sarah tried to play hard to get, but she can’t deny this cutie pie. Too bad her happiness was cut short when Emily turned up right behind her!
Emily put on the biggest scene and even cried on cue. She pulled the Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) card, telling Sarah she was threatened by her! (Nice touch, Ems.) Sarah was shocked at Emily’s plea and stressed that she’s not a homewrecker. Sure, Sarah. Sure.
It seems that both Sarah and Daniel are equally bad at hiding their affections. Conrad (Henry Czerny) knew Daniel’s game from the start, citing the wedding cake nonsense, but he had just the place for Daniel to indulge in his proclivities: a love shack. He believed that Victoria didn’t know about the place he took his lady friends and told Daniel that “this is a place you can fall without regret.” Daniel was vehemently against this idea — at first, anyway — but he eventually had a change of heart.
Aiden Is Everyone’s New Best Friend
Since he was kicked out of the humble Grayson abode, Aiden (Barry Sloane) was in need of a place to crash. Emily got him a nice spot at Nolan’s (Gabriel Mann), and Jack was none to happy about it. He was shocked to find out that Emily was leaving with Aiden after the wedding, but Emily shut him up by reminding him of the timeline he set for her and said he doesn’t get to pass judgment on what she does post-revenge.
Emily and Aiden shared a sweet kiss, which was interrupted by a mysterious text from Charlotte about an interesting e-mail she’d received at The Stowaway. She needed Aiden’s help cleaning up a mess she made; while she was in Europe, someone took nude pictures of her, then someone else stole her phone with all the pictures! (Classy, Charlotte.)
Aiden met up with the guy and tried to strike a deal, and hen that fell through, Aiden just beat him up. But hey, he got Charlotte’s phone back. All clear!
Time To Play
If you thought Emily’s bridal shower wasn’t going to be drama-filled, you thought wrong. First, Victoria hired Sarah to cater the festivities, then announced it was game time.
Remember when Emily confessed to Bizzy (Ana Ortiz) about a first husband? Yeah, Victoria took the bait. She blindfolded Emily and said she had a sweet surprise for her: her first husband! Victoria believed she had just struck gold, but Emily was already five steps ahead of her. Emily revealed it was a marriage of convenience in order to get him his green card so he could be with his partner. He was under Takeda’s guidance, just like Emily.
It’s always a good day when Victoria gets told, and today was a great one. Victoria was also told off by Sarah, who said she couldn’t go through with the plan to meddle in Daniel and Emily’s relationship. “Your psycho obsession is only hurting him,” she said. (Ouch!)
So. Many. Secrets.
After she told Victoria that she was no longer a pawn in her game, Sarah found her way to the Grayson love shack. She told Daniel she couldn’t make the wedding cake and was ready to say goodbye. Daniel then said Emily and Victoria were the same person and he didn’t want to go through with the wedding. He showed her a beautiful necklace that Emily had thought was her gift from Daniel, but it really belonged to Sarah. He admitted that he just couldn’t commit to Emily — and then they kissed! Sarah stopped it from going any further, at least until Daniel speaks to Emily.
Contrary to what Conrad thought, Victoria knew all about the love shack. In fact, she used this to her advantage and gave the number to the place to Emily. She called and found out that Daniel and Sarah were spending the night together! Daniel was all set to call off the wedding when Emily dropped the bomb of all bombs: She’s pregnant! Daniel looked genuinely dumbfounded — as was I.
Earlier in the Hamptons, Emily got a visit from Jack, who was worried about Aiden’s true intentions with Emily. He was really worried about her. He always knew Emily was secretive, but not this much. She questioned why he cared since he hated her, but he confessed that he could never hate her. “I think you deserve more than you’re getting,” he said. I’m all about Team Aiden, but I just have a bad feeling about this.
This bad feeling also comes from the little chat Aiden had with Nolan at the end of the episode. He told Nolan that he had something to disclose to him, but he couldn’t tell Emily. I have no idea what it could be and it scares me.
The Walking Dead
Margaux (Karine Vanasse) was doing some major digging on the Grayson family and Grayson Global. Even though Nolan told her to back off because there wasn’t a story, she kept on. She knew they were hiding something, and she was determined to find out what it was. (Oh Margaux, if you only knew the mess you’re getting into.)
She told Jack she couldn’t meet up with him because she had a meeting with someone who knew all about Conrad. Who could it be? None other than Lydia Davis (Amber Valletta)! Wait, I thought she died on that plane at the end of season one! Guess not!
Revenge just blew my mind. It will literally take me three weeks to wrap my head around this shocking revelation!
