Pilot



I'm late to the party, but at least I'm here. Clearing the decks of some pretty bad shows this season, opened up a slot for Revenge. I gotta say I'm really impressed with just the Pilot alone. They set it up nicely and give you enough back-story to reel you in. I've been avoiding spoilers so I have no idea where this is going. But I can say that I like the characters populating the series, especially Emily.

Looking at the Title Card for Revenge, it finally hit me that the letter "G" in the word, the one that looks like an "8", is the Infinity symbol that that Emily has tattooed on her wrist, the one that her Father taught her as a kid. Well, it's not the full Infinity plus Infinity symbol tattoo, but you get the picture.

I forgot to mention right after watching the Pilot (actually, within the first few minutes of said episode)...

Trust



This show is AWESOME! With all the conniving, plotting and manipulating going on at the hands of Emily (Emily VanCamp), it reminds me a lot of the original Melrose Place and I loved that show. Anyway, with Trust, it just confirmed what I figured would be the formula of the show, based on the Pilot. From the start Emily has a Group picture of all who were complicit in framing her Father. At the end of the episode, once Emily has exacted her revenge on one unlucky person, they get a nice big fat red X over their face. I'm sure this is how it will play out for the remainder of the season.

Trust was really good and I'm enjoying all the characters so far, even the whiny, needy Nolan Ross (Gabriel Mann). The only character that I really don't like so far, as she seems pointless is Emily's friend  Ashley (Ashley Madekwe). I really dig the flashback scenes in the way they are presented and the young Amanda (Emily Alyn Lind) drives home the importance of what she lost when her Father was taken away from her.  The ending is always awesome, to see how Emily sets up her plots for revenge and in this case we get to see how she did it with Harmon. Bwaahahahaha. Pretty big reveal at the end...

I wonder if Emily really has an attraction to Daniel (Joshua Bowman) at all and that this is just part of her set up to take down Victoria. But I can't tell. She seems to have feelings for Jack Porter (Nick Wechsler) a friend of hers from her past. But she is also exhibiting something sincere for Daniel as well. If it turns out to be manipulation on her part, then she would literally give Amanda Woodward (Heather Locklear / Melrose Place) a run for her money.

Betrayal



Another fantastic episode all around, but the revenge plot was kind of a let down. It was missing that public humiliation that should have been at the forefront when taking down the shady lawyer, now running for Public Office. Sure, Emily got what she wanted in forcing his hand at withdrawing from the race at the Benefit Dinner. But he was able to save face. It just lacked that kick-in-the-balls moment I was expecting.

I'm really fascinated with the story they are unfolding with Victoria. I really don't know what to expect now because it was revealed that she had a full blown love affair with Amanda/Emily's father. And the ending said a lot about her feelings for him in that she is still wearing the earrings he gave her. I gotta point out that Emily needs to be a little more discreet. A) She needs a better "hiding" spot for the Infinity Box. Anyone can stumble onto the contents of the box, exposing what she is doing and B) She needs to draw a line between her and Nolan. He is always hanging around at the house at the oddest times. Do this enough times and it's going to really look suspicious in what their connection to each is. And with Victoria having the P.I. tailing Emily, it's only a matter of time before he starts to piece the puzzle together.

Duplicity



With Dr. Banks being kidnapped and stuck into a storage container, it made me realize that Emily, outside of Nolan, is working with someone else, someone that actually can physically kidnap the Doctor. Even though Emily was standing outside of the container later, listening to her wailing, I still can't see her as being the one that actually did the kidnapping. So, it has to be a 3rd member to pull this off. My guess was Frank, the P.I. that works for Victoria.

Guilt



Some pretty clever writing here that further opens up what we the viewer get to see and that can actually be used down the road for blackmail or whatever at a later time. Having Nolan plant the camera in Emily's house and then having her pack it up and sent off to Lydia, unbeknownst to her that it's a camera literally gives Nolan the holy grail of video blackmail when it catches....
