revenge recapping: forgiveness/illusion

Previously on Revenge: Intuition

Forgiveness

So Kara, Amanda’s mom, is kind of weird. And by ‘kind of’ I mean totally and by ‘weird’ I mean psycho. After falling into Aiden’s open arms upon remembering the truth, Emily’s first reaction was, rightfully, bitch has gotta go. Though still worried about Amanda’s recovery, Emily is more worried that her mother might mistakenly kill her. Which would be no good.

Kara and Victoria

i’m surprised those roses don’t wither and die upon your touch

Amanda/Emily’s mom and resident psycho visits Victoria, greeting her with a hug that had me thinking “WTF?!” Victoria invites her to a sleepover at the Grayson’s humble abode, how thoughtful. Her ulterior motive? Find out how this woman is still alive. Oh hey, I know that one!  White Haired Man Gordon was in love with her. GASP! Kara, however seems to be set on making amends with Amanda, who is told by Emily to send her mother packing. But she can’t. Kara’s heartfelt speech about forgiveness has Amanda saying the words Emily can’t. And Kara will live to see another episode.

Kara, Mason, Emily

oh good, my psycho mom and that nosy reporter talking, just what I need

In the other sides of this episode, Padma is investigating David Clarke’s connection to Nolcorp, still not sure of her motive. And our favorite expose journalist, Mason Treadwell, has returned. Curious, naturally, about Kara Clarke’s return from the dead. Jack takes on a partner for the stowaway. And big shocker, in order to get out of testifying against each other, Conrad and Victoria agree to get married….again.

Predictions/Expectations

  • Kara will go apeshit on somebody.
  • Still banking on Emily and Aiden starting something
  • Padma’s investigation isn’t over just yet
  • Mason’s return will do some damage

Quotes

Nolan: “I know I’ve been AWOL, but I just became an uncle. Well, one of those non-uncle uncles, like Kracker or Fester.”

Kara: “So smart to build it right on the ocean, you can see your enemies coming.”

Illusion

if i stop smiling, they won’t buy it

Mason is digging for dirt and, well, come damn near close to getting a hand full of gold. Amanda and Emily begin to go over details that Mason will use to confuse Amanda and get the truth out. The discuss the scar which Mason is so interested in. But you just know that, like a dog with a bone, Mason is not gonna let this hunch go.

Padma’s investigation has given Daniel an idea and with the help of Aiden, who I think is just pretending, but its impossible to tell. Daniel hoping to gain control of Nolcorp by finding the connection between David Clarke and Nolan’s company. So far, not much has come of it, but you know that this is bound to turn into something more.

Victoria and Conrad’s wedding was a beautiful, loving, and peaceful affair that had everyone swooning. Oh I’m sorry, this is Revenge, not a chick flick. Obviously the wedding couldn’t go off without a hitch. And that hitch came in the form of Conrad’s arrest for the murder of Gordon Murphy, which he was framed for by the lovely revengetress herself, Emily Thorne. Despite the hard evidence, Conrad is released, so long as he agrees to help The Initiative with their next task. Hold onto to your seats, this task is still to come.

In other news, Jack, who two episodes ago wanted nothing to do with Amanda, got down on one knee and proposed. She said yes, of course. That’s sure to implode shortly. Declan and Charlotte are back together, cause it worked out so well the first time. And….Mason Treadwell, with his bone clenched tightly between his teeth, has developed a hunch about how Emily Thorne fits into the web.

Predictions/Expectations

  • Mason won’t get to spread his discovery too far before he’s eliminated.
  • Aiden and Emily will discover what Conrad/The Initiative is up to
  • Aiden and Emily will finally do it…pretty please?

Quotes

Emily: “If we choose to, we can live in a world of comforting illusions. We can allow ourselves to be deceived by self-realities. Or we can use them to hide our true intentions.”

Kristen is a confused young adult who sometimes thinks TV shows are actually her life. Wouldn’t that be cool? Unless she was a victim on Dexter, or a deranged privileged teenager on gossip girl, or a wolf on teen wolf, or Liz Lemon! Never mind. It wouldn’t be cool. Kristen is a young adult.
