Revenge is a cornerstone of dramatic potential, yet sometimes the payoff seems so far away. “Sin” introduced a new element to Emily’s quest: regret. Our heroine’s judgment is called into question, along with a couple of incomplete story developments. Still, through the muck a small star shines. Perhaps it's finally time for both Clarke girls to avenge their father?
Revenge has returned, and oh what a bleak summer it’s been. The best dressed cast on TV is back to spice up the airwaves. “Fear” shines a light on the terrors ahead for Emily in the present and very near future. As usual, the season begins with a cliffhanger, but this one might mean the end for our favorite heroine.
Last night's two part finale of Revenge delivered in every way possible. "Truth" splashed secrets across the small screen, with every character implicated in one way or another. Though it was a tumultuous success, was it enough to satiate us after an uneven season?
As the end of the season draws near, Revenge makes its final stand. "Engagement" has Emily slip Daniel's ring back on her finger, and with it, all the complications you could imagine. As she climbs back in bed with the family that ruined hers, someone from her past puts themselves on the line.
Revenge returned with some classic humiliation. "Identity" had Emily struggling with her next step, Nolan attempting to unmask a nemesis and Victoria trying to keep her hidden kin a secret. Though we enjoyed seeing some past behaviors revisited, old problems are getting on our nerves.
Sunday's Revenge jumped six weeks ahead, to the Graysons' annual Halloween celebration. "Masquerade" ignited Emily's newest plan for Victoria, with immediate results. Although Aiden and Nolan made stunning accomplishments their futures are looking bleak.
Last night's Revenge was an all around success. "Victory" was a win for both the good and bad guys. But a huge get for one party means a major loss for Nolan. For Daniel, the person succeeding isn't who he thinks as Emily earns the best prize of them all.
On Revenge they’re playing with a loaded deck. “Illumination” features the arrival of Emily’s foster brother, who fits right in with the dwellers of Grayson Manor. Although one of the Porters is improving in our eyes, the other is woefully forgotten.
On Revenge when it comes to trouble the Graysons are always at the root of it. “Retribution” focused on the fallout from the tragedy on The Amanda. The episode’s director Helen Hunt perfected the night by drawing out powerful performances from actors who usually go unnoticed.
Last night's Revenge was the episode we've all been waiting for. "Sacrifice" reveals who met their end on The Amanda. After waiting all season, did it live up to our expectations?
For Revenge, murder is just a warm-up. “Union” saw all the characters join forces, with some partnerships more doomed than others. While the episode wasn’t a bore, it wasn't enough to distract us from the weekly waiting game.
What happens when a dangerous organization takes over nearly every scene of Revenge? You get "Collusion," an episode full of The Initiative and little else. Though the show's primary focus has shifted to its darkest villain, that didn't leave it without some loose ends to tie up.
Revenge takes another step towards justice. With it, they brought the sensational return of the heroine we’ve been desperately awaiting. “Sabotage” dealt with the plans made by many, and the vicious attempts to undermine those efforts. That’s the kind of deception you don’t want to miss.
Last night, Revenge returned to renew its efforts to titillate the nation. “Power” outlined everyone’s next move in their current drama. As usual, certain stories were more engaging than others. But one empowering moment makes this episode a must-see.
The Revenge winter finale has come and gone. After last week’s trip down memory lane, the show was able to ignite our interest again. “Revelations” focused on Daniel’s fight to claim his family’s company as his own.
Sunday night, Revenge took another trip down memory lane. “Lineage” focused on the drama of the year 2006. Usually, when the show dips into the past it illuminates a hidden truth. So what was so important about '06?
Last night’s Revenge continued to prove why it’s America’s favorite prime time drama. “Penance” focused on several characters past indiscretions. For them, it meant wrestling with demons and owning the truth. For fans it meant another hour of devious entertainment.
Last night, Revenge returned in a rightful blaze of glory. “Illusion” dealt with the masks people wear to hide the truth while getting what they want. Everyone was in their element with backstabbing, scheming and the like. Once again, the biggest mystery was who set the Hamptons on fire.
Sunday, Revenge did its best to reach new heights in deceitful entertainment. "Forgiveness" proves that ending old drama just makes room for a new one. Unexpected revelations played a major part in last night's phenomenal show. So what made this episode so splendid?
Last night, Revenge upped the ante and momentum. “Intuition” was every bit the pulse racer as the first two episodes. But as the season progresses, will the effort to grow other characters cause it to lag? Or can this primetime soap stop itself from blending in with the pack?
