This is a step in the right direction. I'm glad to hear that ABC has gotten it's proverbial head out of it's ass to address what up till now has been the biggest blunder in how they handle the show. Too many long breaks throughout the season is not good for any series, no matter how popular it is. Is this move perfect? No. I would gladly wait till January for the premiere if it meant no breaks at all once it started. But anything is better than what we got this season, which was a nightmare at times.

I am guessing they are looking for a replacement for Desperate Housewives, and the Sunday slot is a premiere place to showcase the series.  As long as the ratings stay high, it should have some life.  I just have to wonder how they keep the charade of Emily/Amanda, and how long the revenge plot can go.  A lot has already been covered in Season 1.

Jennifer Jason Leigh Joins Revenge As Emily's Mother

Interesting. I like the casting of Jennifer.

Yeah, they never really talked about Emily's mother.  I think this could be a good plot twist, and a threat to Emily keeping her secret identity as Amanda.

When I first heard about Leigh being cast, my immediate reaction was "is she old enough to play Emily's mother". And then it dawned on me that she isn't the same girl on Fast Times At Ridgemont High.

Welcome back Ganthc! I was just wondering where you had been as of late.

Work has been really busy, so time to chat on forums has been limited.  Plus, with summer, there isn't as much to talk about with TV.

Destiny




























This was a long summer waiting for the return of Revenge. It felt like putting on comfortable shoes again after watching Destiny. I kinda like where they are going (so far) with the story-line for this season with Emily looking to find out who institutionalize her mother. So many possibilities that even trying to guess who right now would be futile. The writers will change it up over the course of the season no doubt. I also like where they are going with the Charlotte arc too, which will make her more of a focal point this season compared to last season. I still don't believe for one second that Jack is the father. So, who's baby is it? Emily and Nolan as roommates....this should be fun.....or funny.

Yeah, this first episode is really good.  I wonder if the Japanese guy's assistant is the potential father of Fauxmanda's baby.  Either he will be that, or a potential love interest for Emily in the future.  Not sure what role Declan is going to play.  He seems to be the adult now?  Very weird.  I do wonder what deal Victoria has struck with the white haired man and his group.  It seems she might have been more involved with him to begin with, but we'll see what happens.  It is a great start for the show.

I kinda thought the same thing for a second and then completely forgot about it till you brought it up. I am inclined to lean to your way of thinking. But then again, it also seems to obvious and why I dismissed it at first. Revenge likes to spin things and keep viewers on their toes. But I wouldn't be shocked if he is in fact the father.

Resurrection

























Hahaha. Pretty good domino effect. What goes around comes around. I thought it was clever to set up the 'White-Hair Guy' by making it look like he kidnapped and beat on Victoria, thus freeing her from having to hide out and return home. And then having Conrad spin the story to explain...and "justify" why he drained Charlotte's bank account. This of course leads to Emily and her Clam Shell Camera footage as leverage against 'White-Hair Guy', but with disastrous results. I'm kinda shocked that someone as meticulous as Emily would let her guard down against someone like him and wouldn't foresee him trying to gut her. Lucky for her, she has a protector to shoot people in the back.

I like the cast of Jennifer Jason Leigh as Emily's (Amanda Clarke's) mother. This role, if it expands into something much bigger, which I think it will, could be a huge career boost for her. I hope that is the case.

Confidence

























I would say that the first 3/4 of the episode was just okay for me. It's not till the final 10 minutes does it rock and change the course of the playing field. When Victoria changes her prepared press conference speech and ad lib's to get one up on the reporters, she proves that she is the Queen Bee at manipulating everyone. I thought it was awesome that she announced that Charlotte's real father was David Clarke and she manages to get the entire Grayson Family to stand united together. The cherry on top was how Victoria dragged Amanda on stage to become one with the family. Hahahahaha.

Is it just me, but did I detect a bit of jealousy on the part of Nolan's new CEO? When she overhears Nolan's phone conversation with Emily, the look on her face told me that she is going to be this seasons new 'Tyler'.
