‘Revenge’ Recap: Victoria Gets Terrible News — Did Charlotte Die?

Did Charlotte just die? In one of the very last scenes of the Jan. 25 episode of 'Revenge,' Victoria got a phone call, during which a man revealed there's been a 'death in the family.' Plus, Emily snuck away to Ben's house in the middle of the night and they totally hooked up. After Daniel Grayson's (Josh Bowman) tragic death, we thought we'd get some time to grieve, but just four episodes later, another character has died. On top of this terrible news (we'll discuss who died after the jump), Margaux (Karine Vanasse) discovered Jack (Nick Wechsler) killed Agent Kate Taylor, Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) bribed Kim Richards, Nolan (Gabriel Mann) and Emily (Emily VanCamp) proved Louise (Elena Satine) didn't kill her father, and Emily locked lips (and likely so much more) with Ben (Brian Hallisay), while Jack looked on in sadness. The Jan. 25 episode of Revenge was so crazy!

‘Revenge’: Charlotte Dead? — Season 4 Episode 14 ‘Kindred’ Recap

We have to start with this death! After Victoria mingled and bribed a group of friends we’ve never seen before — except for one Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star (Oh, heyyy, Kim Richards!) — she received a life-changing phone call. A man on the other hand said he’s sorry he didn’t call sooner, but there’s been a “death in the family.” Of course, we never got a name, but it has to be either Charlotte (Christa B. Allen) or Patrick (Justin Hartley)! And fans on Twitter are going bananas over the thought of little Ms. Grayson joining her brother six feet under.

But if we’re being realistic, it’s likely Patrick that died. Right?!

Emily & Ben Hook Up — Jack Weeps In The Shadows

Anyway, Emily spent most of the episode dealing with her two identities. First, she confronted Margaux, after one of her magazine’s ran a story suggesting Emily Thorne was David Clarke’s new lover. (Ew.) Then, she admitted to both Ben and David that she’s not ready to give up her identity as Emily Thorne, even though she has already cleared her father’s name. And lastly, she and Jack had a talk about the death of Agent Kate Taylor, mainly because Jack was being awarded a medal of honor and he felt too guilty to accept it. Unfortunately for them, Margaux’s private investigator recorded the entire conversation, which would give the ammo needed to take down Emily. Margaux refused to use the video tape, however, because she had a sweet heart-to-heart chat with Jack at the beach club just hours earlier.

Furthermore, Emily and Nolan helped Louise prove she didn’t kill her father. In fact, it was Louise’s mother who pushed her father down a flight of stairs, after he found out she was cheating on him. Louise won this battle, but we don’t think the war is over.

And just when Emily was about to call it a day, she headed over to Ben’s house in the middle of the night. When he opened the door, they totally started making out. Ben’s hot, but we feel so bad for Jack. He was headed over to Ben’s to talk after quitting his job, but instead, he witnessed Emily and Ben’s heavy make out session.

We’re big Jack and Emily shippers, so we’re so upset. But now, it’s your turn to tell us how YOU feel!

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Who should Emily date — Ben or Jack? And is Charlotte really dead?
