Sabotage



It's no surprise to me that Nolan's girlfriend was revealed to be working with the Initiative. Actually, my original guess was that she was avenging Tyler. Anyway, her being a bad guy was a no-brainer and I'm sure that I wasn't the only one that suspected this from the get go. Having be a mole for the Initiative is kinda weak in a way because that's the most obvious route to take when writing plot for Revenge. I think it would have just been a better reveal for the character if she in fact was trying to avenge Tyler, regardless of whatever relationship it turned out to be. Overall, the episode was decent. I'm finding that the biggest hook for me is seeing what's going to happen with Jack and Declan with regards to the Ryan Brothers.

Interesting to see that the Ryan Brother's are now making a play for Conrad Grayson. I shouldn't be surprised that he would get his hands dirty by getting into bed with them if there is anyway to profit from this new merger. I just wonder how this is going to backfire and who's gonna really benefit from this. My guess and for the stake of the show, it will be the Ryan Brother's that get Conrad under their thumbs. Now that Aiden is going off the rails trying to "avenge" his sister, I hope that it leads to his demise. His character is boring and seeing him gone won't hurt the show. As for Nolan, I can't wait to see what kind of hoops he makes Padma jump through now that he knows she is a mole.

This started off a bit shaky and underwhelming, but boy did they ever end it with a series of whoppers. Having Victoria shoot and kill Helen Crowley was a long time coming. I'm surprised that it took as long as it did. With something clearly threatening your son and one that has kept you under their thumb for 20 years, I would have expected Victoria to take out the garbage long ago. The final shot with Victoria, Daniel and Conrad standing over Helen was THE money shot (pen not intended).

The cliffhanger was elsewhere though when it's revealed that Nate Ryan has stowed away on Jack's boat, seemingly to retrieve that computer with all the evidence that Amanda used to force Conrad to sell his half of the bar back to Jack. I'm expecting something big to go down and I figure that Amanda will be the one that kills Nate by her own hands.

Speaking of Amanda, even though she had Jack's baby, I was still expecting her to have a conscience and not marry Jack. How can she live with herself knowing that all the memories Jack shares about Amanda as a kid has nothing to do with her? Man, that's something I couldn't ever live with. Fictional characters or not, there's some things in life you just can't get over with.

Sacrifice



Fantastic episode that had a lot of high tension wire drama. I suspected that Amanda would meet her demise with this one, but with a different ending. We see that the boat is under water at the beginning of the episode, so it doesn't take a genius to figure out something bad happens at the end. Even though I knew that Amanda would be a victim, I figured that the writers would have her lost at sea so that there would be an opening for her character to return later, possibly with amnesia. I guess even they thought that was a bad way to go as it''s a hallmark plot device for Soap's and can and does come off very cheesy. So, with Amanda actually dying in Emily's arms, I kinda miss her, even if she has annoyed me for pretty much her entire run on the show.

Retribution



Very sad and very goooooood episode. A lot of tension underneath the surface. It this was reality, there is no way that Emily would have been able to keep her emotions in check. She would have slit every Greyson's neck (except Charlotte of course). But, this is a show which means saving the best for last. As for Jack, I knew the day was coming soon that he would find out about Emily's past connection to Amanda, but I wasn't expecting him to find out this fast. Nice wrinkle at the end with Amanda's brother popping up. Curious to see where they take this story now.

I wonder if the Hacker known as 'Falcon' is anyone we have already seen on the show. We shall see. As for the rest, I was kind of restless because the story was all over the place and wasn't particularly engaging. Sure, they introduced Eli, better known as Amanda's half-brother who's got a dark side and will eventually become a big headache for Emily. It's just that this angle has already been played before with Tyler as the resident 'whack-job'. I did however like where they are taking Jack's character. He is going off the deep end trying to piece together all the lies and it's going to come to a head.

Victory



Meh. This episode was bloated with that really doesn't need to be in the story. Nolan and Aiden set out to retrieve Padma's father, only to lose her to the Initiative. Jack learns of a secret recording with Conrad admitting to taking a hit out on him. Emily and her foster-brother plot to humiliated their foster mother in public. The kicker is that Emily goes to see Mason in prison and learns that Victoria has another illegitimate son....somewhere. Boy, they are really doing everything possible to not rush through the main plot so that they can drag this out for another 5 years. I found myself very bored with this one.

Masquerade



I found this episode incredibly pretentious and very boring. I can't stand story-lines that revolve around Masquerade parties. I don't get the appeal of these types of parties. I guess you have to be insanely rich and full of one self to 'get it'. I don't. The only thing I found interesting was Nolan's story as well as Jack's story. Everything else was a wash for me. I'm losing interest in the show. It better right itself and fast because if the cliffhanger doesn't give me something juicy, I can't see myself returning for Season 3. I'm just hoping that the last few episodes is nothing more than a hiccup and not a preview of things to come.
