revenge recapping: absolution

previously on revenge: justice

While waiting to find out if Daniel will be cleared of all charges following Lee’s “suicide” and “confession”, Emily begins to gather information about the day her father was killed.  While visiting Charlotte she is given a photograph of David in prison. The photo is from the day he was killed and shows him writing in a journal which Emily doesn’t have. She calls Nolan to find out what happened to the journal and walks into his office just as he is stashing the journal. She tells him to stay out of it.

Aunt Carol

Looking through the journal Emily finds the initials CM and hunts down the person who belongs to the initials. She finds a shotgun toting woman, also known as Nolan’s Aunt. They fill Emily in on yet another missing piece of this super complicated puzzle. Emily takes the information she is given and comes to the conclusion that she will kill the man who Conrad hired to murder her father. Nolan seems shocked by her conclusion.

Over at the Grayson Manor, Daniel is released from prison, though the press still seems to be hungry for his blood. Emily suggests an interview, which everyone decides is a good idea. Queen Victoria is plotting against Conrad by going to the FBI. They plan to do a formal investigation of Grayson Global. Conrad is stewing over all this when Daniel comes into his office. At Emily’s nudging, and Jack’s suggestive comments, Daniel starts questioning Conrad, who tells him everything while Emily overhears. During his press interview Emily is hopeful that Daniel will come clean, but he doesn’t. Her disappointment comes in the form of fury and more motivation for vengeance.

Charlotte and Victoria

Ashley who was going to be hired by Brooks gets a job with Grayson Global. And Charlotte, who is still pill popping, gets ratted out by Declan. She tells him to forget about his tuition money, but Nolan kindly steps in. Queen Victoria is worried about Charlotte’s pill popping and getting suspended so she tries to connect with her over and tell her more about David Clarke.

Quotes

Victoria: “The Hamptons are filthy with ambitious young girls like yourself.”

Charlotte: “I guess we can add teen pill popper to the Grayson book of shame.”

Daniel: “My parents raised me to be a Grayson. To put my name above everything including the truth.”

modern family recapping: virgin territory

Previously on Modern Family: Aunt Mommy

Alex, Haley, and Lily

Luke and Manny’s unlikely friendship continues to blossom as the two try to take Lily down. She’s obviously too cute and taking up all of their screen time, something must be done. Their elaborate trap catches the wrong victim, Cam, who “hurts” his back, but really just needs a moment alone in Claire’s house to find the Tupperware she claims to have given back to him. Everyone is shooed out of the house, Claire to yoga, Gloria following Claire to bond in yoga, Mitchell to get a heating pad and fix a ruined memory for his dad, Phil and the girls (Alex, Haley, and Lily) to the doll hospital (Lily’s doll was also injured in the trap), and Luke and Manny to impress a girl down the street who likes bad boys.

Phil and Haley

On the way to the doll hospital, Phil says something about Haley being a virgin, though he is no referring to sex when he says it, Alex’s subsequent laugh hints something that Phil probably would’ve been better off not knowing. Phil can’t see Haley the same way anymore and they speak in code about the doll and its injury referring to how things will never be the same. Phil does come to terms with it, because he’s the cool dad. And Haley does confirm that he is a cool dad.

Gloria and Claire

Claire is reluctant to let Gloria join her at yoga, though Gloria persists. Claire has to let Gloria in on her dirty little secret. She doesn’t actually go to yoga, she goes to the shooting range and fires off some shots. Gloria loves it, especially since she’s a sharp shot, and the two do bond. Mitchell and Jay also bond, though inadvertently. Mitchell ruined a past memory about Jay’s hole-in-one, letting it slip that he, Mitchell actually kicked the ball in. Jay’s upset because his rep it ruined, Mitchell is upset because that hole-in-one was the basis for a very pleasant evening with his Dad and his first beer. Naturally, Jay is too hung up on the ruined rep to care for Mitchell’s nostalgia. But he does clear up when Mitchell has his first beer. Turns out, Mitchell was wrong all along.

Manny and Luke

To get the attention of the girl down the street who likes bad boys, Manny and Luke take Cam’s car and do a super smooth drive by. Then do a not so smooth drive back (in reverse) because Manny can’t U-turn. Cam does eventually find the Tupperware, proving that he is not in fact crazy, well kind of. And, I know everyone was worried, Lily’s doll is going to be just fine. Doctor’s said she’ll make a full recovery.

Best/Funniest Moments

  • Talking about the doll hospital and medical insurance.
  • Gloria becoming upset about blind models not being able to see how pretty they are.
  • How seriously the doll doctor took his job.
  • Phil’s transparent exuberance about Alex wanting a doll, which means she’ll prob be a virgin for a bit longer than Haley.
  • Manny’s panicked face as he reversed by the blonde girl.

Quotes

Claire [to Gloria]: “I live with 4 teenagers, you live with 2 adults.”

Cam: “Do you think it would be offensive to ask my daughter to walk on my back?”

Luke: “My mom hates messes.”
Manny: “I’m familiar with Claire.”

Gloria: “In my village, a doll was an apple on a fork.”
