revenge recapping: lineage and revelations

previously on revenge: penance

Lineage

Apparently Thanksgiving of 2006 was a rather eventful one for the whole Revenge gang. Victoria received a visit from her mother, Marion Harper, who was invited by an unsuspecting and naive Daniel. Turns out Victoria has a dark past and she most likely learned her scheming from her mother who had a young Victoria shoot a man she had just shot so she could avoid prosecution. Though her mother came for dinner, she ended up staying for her just desserts. The man Victoria’s mother had fallen in love with was apparently hired by Victoria to break her.

Emily and Aiden

you are so adorable when you’ve got your mission face on….

Emily, in midst of planning her revenge, was also carrying out a mission for Takeda. It’s on that mission that she meets two important people. Ashley, who she saves from prostitution and Aiden, who is taken in by Takeda and offered training.

NolCorp is going public, it’s exciting news, champagne for all. The celebration doesn’t last long unfortunately. Nolan’s CFO and lover, Marco Romero, discovers that the $500 million offshore account he opened at Nolan’s request has been emptied. Leading Marco to believe that Nolan just stole $500 million from the company. When Nolan tries to explain, Marco won’t hear a word of it. The two part ways.

Jack’s father, alive at this point, is acting suspicious. Jack, almost as naive as Daniel, seems to not read into it. But we can tell something is up. Joe Ryan is apparently terrorizing the businesses in the neighborhood. Jack tries to smooth things over by offering to pay, but, at the hand of Matt Duncan, Ryan takes a bullet and swims with the fishes. Jack’s father assists in the cover up.

Quotes

Nolan: There would be no company without David and I wasn’t about to screw over his daughter after everything that she’d been through. If you don’t get that then I don’t think we have a future together.

Aiden [to Emily]: You fought for me when no one else would.

Marian: Vindictive bitch.
Victoria: I learned from the best

Revelations

Daniel’s quest to take over Grayson Global is ruthless and to be honest, I can’t fully remember his initial motive. I’m sure he has one and it’s probably justified. Aiden and Emily are assisting in anyway they can, without Daniel’s knowledge of course. They watch as Conrad and Victoria do their best to thwart Daniel.

Amanda and Jack are having Carl christened and throwing a party with a cast of interesting characters as the guests. The Ryan brothers seem awfully interested in who will be going. And, as polite as Jack is, he is sure to extend an invite their way. That way they can weed through the crowd themselves. At the church, as Emily looks on lovingly and wonders if it could’ve been different, wonders is she could’ve been in Amanda’s place in a different world, in a different life, Matt Duncan, an old friend of Jack’s father and the man responsible for the Ryan brother’s father’s death, warns Jack against the Ryans. He takes the warning seriously, especially after Matt turns up beaten bloody right outside the restaurant.

Daniel, Conrad, Victoria

I know what you did to my poetry! It’s payback time

In an effort to get Daniel to lose his trust in Ashley, Emily shares a video of Emily and Conrad with Victoria, who uses it for her own purposes. She tries to get Ashley to seduce Salvador Grobet and persuade him to vote for Conrad to stay on as head of Grayson Global. The two are interrupted as Emily and Aiden work together quickly to ensure Daniel finds out and is given the rights to run Grayson Global, which now, thanks to Daniel, has 51% interest in NolCorp (bummer for Nolan, but he’ll make it right). Even as Conrad and Victoria worry over Daniel’s future, they know there is nothing to be done. They did their best to protect Daniel, now we’ll see if Aiden and Emily will do better.

Predictions/Expectations
Daniel will quickly start to sink and bring Aiden on to assist
Nolan’s new CFO and old CFO are gonna go head to head in a battle for the position and Nolan’s love
The Ryan brothers are only just getting started

Quotes
Emily: I’m not destroying lives, Amanda. I’m righting wrongs.

Conrad: Where did you get this?
Victoria: From whoever seems to be circling this family with an endless catalog of our sins.

revenge recapping: penance

Previously on Revenge: illusion

The Board, Victoria, Daniel

Don’t get confused, the devil’s in white.

Aiden and Daniel are still in full swing trying to get Grayson Global into Daniel’s hand. Aiden decides to step outside the box on this one and ask Nolan directly for the proof. With a little prompting and a reminder that this is his best shot at protecting Emily, Nolan hands over the proof. Daniel and Aiden work fast, as Ashley keeps Conrad distracted by the event Daniel pitches his leadership to the board and one member of the initiative who probably shouldn’t even be there. We don’t know the exact outcome, but we can assume that with the punch he was packing, the board will likely pass to Daniel…and The Initiative will have stake in NolCorp.

Conrad and Victoria are becoming more and more unified as of late. They are both terrified of what The Initiative is going to do and though they may not be able to stop them, have decided to try and take their former allies and now adversaries down with them. When Mason confesses all to Cara, she goes after Victor and Conrad and in what they think are their last moments they grab each other’s hands. Luckily for them Aiden grabs Cara out of the room and he and Emily send her away.

Mason Treadwell

Emily may have screwed me over, but I’ll come out on top…..

As Treadwell continues to sift through the wreckage and  figure out Amanda and Emily’s connection he continues to dig his own grave. He confronts Emily with his version of the truth, that Emily and Amanda were lovers at Allenwood and Amanda has pulled Emily into this journey. Emily doesn’t scare too easily with Mason’s story, but Amanda sure does. After panicking to Emily, who tells her to stand down. Amanda starts a plan of her own and goes to Mason Treadwell’s house to tell him the truth. But she’s ready to kill him. Emily catches wind of what Amanda’s about to do just in time and then confesses everything to Mason, enlisting his help to get her mother out of town. Mason, naturally, screws it all up in favor of clearing his own guilt, but he gets his in the end. Emily frames him for Gordon Murphy’s murder and tells him to take the fault in exchange for full exoneration and the chance to write her story when it’s all over.

When Emily returns from her visit with Mason, Aiden is waiting for her. His concern prompts Emily to throw herself in his arms, finally.

Predictions/Expectations

  • Aiden and Emily will start working together against the Initiative, while Emily puts her revenge on the backburner…kind of.
  • Daniel will take over Grayson Global and the Initiative will salivate over the power NolCorp now give them

Quotes
Nolan: “You might have mentioned that Hey Nolan, this one time at Revenge Camp, I met this fellow avenger, and guess where he’s going to be summering?””

Emily: “As much as we both enjoy the sound of your voice, Mason, why don’t you just get to the point?”
