Revenge Season 3 Episode 13 “Hatred” Review: Life is Great Sunrise

Revenge Season 3 Episode 13 “Hatred” Review: Life is Great Sunrise

Do No Harm Did Niko actually cauterize Emily’s wounds with that fire poker? That was so not sterile! When this show started, we knew that the Graysons had David Clarke killed and a few people have been kidnapped and blown up and shot along the way, but this show is getting sickeningly violent. As much as I love Aiden, it all started with him stabbing Takeda with his own sword, […]

Revenge Season 3  Episode 12 “Endurance” Review: Daddy Issues

The Hunter Becomes the Hunted It’s unclear whether Niko knows that Aiden was the one who killed Takeda, but I think we can rest assured that there will be blood when she discovers the truth. Speaking of revengesses, that sucker punch she delivered to Emily had to have been payback for stealing Aiden away, not for chickening out on her takedown of the Graysons. Of course, I want to tell […]

Revenge Season 3 Episode 11 “Homecoming” Review: Not Quite the Honeymoon Anticipated

Where Am I? Who Am I? I’ve labeled this show as soapy at times, but the amnesia thing was straight out of daytime TV’s playbook. The only moments that redeemed that overused storyline are the scenes in which Emily tells Charlotte that her father was David Clarke (too bad Charlotte is too much of an idiot to put two and two together) and of course, the final scene in which […]

Revenge Season 3 Episode 10 “Exodus” Review: It's Not Every Day That Your Sister Marries Your Brother

If only Charlotte knew exactly who Emily really was, she wouldn’t have the same feelings about being the maid of honor at her wedding. And speaking of Daniel, I was definitely surprised to discover that he was the one who shot Emily. With Patrick and Lydia back in the picture, I thought it would be one of them, or at least Victoria. Obviously, Victoria was supposed to go down for […]

Revenge Season 3 Episode 09 “Surrender” Review: Daniel Gives Up

Mr. and Mrs. Ross Maybe it’s because I’m feeling a little under the weather, but I was surprised that Aiden’s proposal didn’t bring me to tears. As a diehard Bachelor fan, I’m usually a puddle over someone popping the question. I did get chills though, and Nolan’s plans to visit warmed my heart. Aiden obviously isn’t concerned with matching the size of Daniel’s diamond because he has so much more […]

Revenge Season 3 Episode 07 “Resurgence” Review: Forgiveness

…Is More Than Saying Sorry You’ll have to forgive me. I watched Just Friends for the 1000th time this weekend, so that song is stuck in my head. If I could change the title for this episode, it would definitely be ‘Forgiveness,’ because everyone seems to be kissing and making up this week. However, a show like Revenge would never have a touchy-feely title like that, at least not this […]

Revenge Season 3 Episode 05 “Control” Review: Losing It

Revenge Season 3 Episode 05 "Control" Review: Losing It

This season started out so well, but now it’s getting a little ridiculous. Was Jack so wrapped up in Amandaland last season that he completely missed the deadly and debonair assassin that is Aiden Mathis? I know Emily still harbored feelings for her childhood love, but she wasn’t that great at hiding Aiden from her Montauk folks. Think about it: Charlotte was at all of the parties that Aiden attended […]

Revenge Season 3 Episode 04 “Mercy” Review: The Young and the Merciless

You’re a Real Grayson Now This season I’ve had fun reflecting on what sort of trial by fire each character has gone through to become a true Grayson. This week, Emily’s rite of passage was lying to the police about Conrad’s culpability in the accident that killed Father Paul. Just when our hearts softened over Daniel protecting his family, he shows his true Hamptonite colors by confessing that he needs […]
