Intuition































This episode was EPIC in what went down. You want a soap opera, this is exactly what you get here. It has all the hallmarks of what makes a great Soap. A very pivitol episode that changes the playing field for Revenge happens in Intuition. Amanda falls from the first floor at the Grayson Manor, causing internal bleeding that has her rushed to the hospital for an emergency C-Section. I was certain that this was how they would kill Amanda off and the baby. That didn't happen. But with this all over the news, this forces Kara Clarke out of hiding to be with her "daughter" at her bedside. Imagine being in Emily's shoes and seeing her there.

Also, I knew from the get go that the kid asking Declan to "hold" the merchandise" would be revealed to be nothing more than a shakedown to get his and Jack's bar. I wasn't at all surprised in how it played out. As for Padma and Nolan swapping spit, what's up with that? I thought they had established that Nolan was gay. Or is he Bi? Or just confused? Or is this the workings of Nolan trying to get to the bottom of something that he doesn't feel is right that he knows that Padma is up to something and getting close is the only way to go about it? Whatever it is, this is one hell of an episode.

FYI, Emily VanCamp looked incredible with her low cut dress.

Forgiveness



























Welcome back Roger Bart! Some of the best episodes from Season 1 were the ones that had Roger playing Mason Treadwell. Why? Because he is the ultimate sh*t stirrer. He dregs up so much crap and spins it for his own amusement that the viewer can't help but revel in it. He is awesome and I really hope he will have a long extended run this season. Having said that, I wouldn't be shocked at all if someone on the show had him whacked because of his ability to create messy drama. More please!!

As for Jennifer Jason Leigh, I was on edge watching her in this episode. I was expecting her to snap and go completely off the rails, which they have been hinting at from her past. She may have it under "control" now, but she plays the part brilliantly, much like Single White Female. Oh, and about Padma, I'm betting that she is Tyler's half-sister or something and that she is plotting to get back at Nolan for doing Tyler wrong from Season 1. This would be taken directly from Soap Opera 101.

Illusion




I was certain that Emily's ruse would keep Mason busy for the foreseeable future by planting all the evidence connecting Conrad to the murder of Gordon Murphy ('White-Haired Man'). It didn't even last the entire episode. Well, technically it did with Mason piecing the puzzle together to discover that Emily and Amanda paths crossed at  Juvenile Detention. I wonder what trick Emily has up her sleeve that's gonna get her out of this now. Curious to see where Nolan's relationship with Padma goes now that he has called her out on her snooping and exactly what he expects her to do by going further.

Penance



A very wacky, but highly entertaining episode with twist and turns, but it comes at the expense of feeling a little too far-fetched to be believable, even for a show called Revenge. All of the sudden, Emily is making miscalculations the past couple of episodes that she wouldn't have made last season. Why would she trust Mason to not screw her over by baiting her mother? Yes, she recorded the conversation, but this wasn't the objective since she didn't know that the confession would have come up to begin with. She got lucky. But the thing that I don't buy is that Emily and Aiden would just let Kara walk and expect her to disappear and not be any more trouble, this coming on the heels of her holding the Grayson's at gunpoint. The fact that they gave her pills and called her out on her mental instability just doesn't fly. So, what do they do? Here's a stack of cash, a full tank of gas. Please leave. Ok.

So much for Mason sticking around for a long run. Looks like he is willing to confess to a crime he didn't commit. Yeah, like this isn't going to come back and bite Emily in the ass later.

Lineage



Talk about a f*cked up childhood. Victoria's own Mother (Adrienne Barbeau) makes Mommie Dearest look almost like a saint. Forcing your child to shoot a man just to cover up her involvement with killing him is low. So, we finally get some insight into what made Victoria who she is and the twist in setting up her mother at the diner table was good. In spite of this nice reveal about her, the episode as a whole was pretty much a throw away. Meh. This is the problem I think Season 2 is currently embroiled in, it's purposely trying not to move the story forward and here we spent an hour going backwards. I get that they are setting up the next arc this way, but it doesn't make it any easier to swallow.

Revelations




Fantastic episode. During Season 1, many people wondered how the plot around Amanda/Emily could sustain itself for a long run given that her list was for the most part...small. Well, after tonight's episode, there is no question where the series can go now. Up till now, this season has been off just a little bit because they were setting up the additional story arcs, not just for Amanda, but for everyone else on the show. You have Amanda's quest still intact. But now we have Nolan as the Trojan horse to bring down Greyson Global from the inside out in an effort to save his own company, we have Jake taking on his two business "partners" who turn out to be the sons of the man murdered with Jake's father's gun and you have the Initiative angle as well. There is plenty to play with now and should make for a good long run.

Power



The big Red X returns and it's about damn time. One of the things that made Season 1 so enjoyable was watching Emily dispatching her enemies one by one and then grabbing a fat Red Marker and X'ing their face out on a picture. That was pretty much abandoned for a long time. So, it was nice to see the Judge get his. Even better was Emily convincing his Wife to do it in a public forum so as to humiliate him. Couple of other things at play happened in Power. First has to do with the Ryan Brother's. I knew they were going to shift the drugs onto Declan. But since Jack took the fall, I can see Amanda coming to his aide and ensnaring them once and for all and getting them off the show. It's starting to run a bit too long. Also, Nolan better watch out. His Ex is working for the enemy and that whole meeting was just to get him trapped and reveal that he isn't loyal to Daniel or the company. Overall, a good episode.
