i swear 'omg' has to have been invented just for abc's 'revenge.'
did you see it last night?
if not, stop reading and start streaming.
was that not just an amazing episode?
so 1st off, who broke into emily's beach house and stole the box she kept all her information in about her real father (david clark) and her real childhood (she was amanda clark) and her revenge lists for the people who framed her father and put in prison for terrorism?
honestly, i thought tyler wanted to sleep with daniel and my only disappointment when tyler got hauled off by his brother and the police a few episodes back (when he tried to kill emily and daniel at the birthday dinner for daniel) was that he didn't at least kiss daniel.
tyler did make out with nolan of course. twice, i believe. but he clearly had the hots for daniel. and i kind of think daniel did for him at 1 point. but i digress.
so it's tyler.
he has the box.
he also has amanda. (who's really emily. remember they switched after reform school.)
emily finds that out when they try to locate amanda (when she and nolan try).
ty wants money. lots of money. at 1st he's talking about killing but now he says he wants money.
amanda meets him, handcuffs him and goes to the trunk to verify her box is there. she leaves her gun in the trunk and walks back over. okay, she's got her box, but where's amanda, he promised to let amanda go.
amanda's behind her. and pissed.
tyler's told her that emily framed her for the fire on that writer's home and that emily kept messages from jack from her and all this other stuff.
she has turned on emily.
they leave and emily - i don't think - even has her box.
tyler wants amanda to go to the engagement party with him. (daniel and emily's engagement.) and he leaves her alone with a dress.
meanwhile jack hears from a priest in haiti and decides to go there and help out for a few months. he tells declan (his brother). he and nolan then go over to emily's with sammy. sammy always wants to be around emily (because she's amanda and sammy was her dog when she was a little girl) so jack wants to leave sammy with her.
amanda agrees. she wishes him well and tells nolan to go with him and make sure he leaves so he's safe.
william devane tells charlotte she can't go to therapy. if she goes to therapy and talks about how she, a grayson, is actually the daughter of david clark the terrorist, it could hurt the family. (remember, she just learned that her father was really david last episode.)
she's got jack's pills from when he got beaten up (by victoria's goons) and she's popping them and drinking like crazy.
william devane is playing conrad grayson's father. i forget his character's name. he meets with daniel (who lets it slip about his sister's plans to see a therapist) and tells him he needs daniel to step up. for starters, meet with a japanese client. (it's the man emily knows.)
daniel does and tells the japanese man he's going to ask his fiancee (emily) to leave with him tonight for paris. emily calls the japanese man and he sends her call to voice mail.
conrad tells victoria she can get market value for the stocks but he's not giving her the stocks. he will give her the deed to the beach house. she says she will make the divorce very messy and very public. now that he's exposed to charlotte that he's not her father, he's got nothing on victoria. he tells her that his father wants them to have a low key divorce.
victoria: 'you may have to answer him but i don't. and if it takes bloodying you on wall street, so be it.'
but later victoria agrees to sign the papers. what conrad doesn't know is that she's got the s.e.c. number and intends to bring grayson industries down.
daniel and victoria speak at the party. she tells him that emily won't want to leave for paris. how does she know? because emily's ambitious, victoria says, just like she was. and that means, victoria says, that emily's really wanting to marry a grayson and live the grayson life style.
the japanese man gives emily a box and tells her to bury it (it has something to do with her past - it's wrapped and has a ribbon on it).
she goes down the beach to do that, leaving the party.
then daniel shows up and tells her they should leave for paris.
she says they can't run from their problems.
they fight (waspy -fight) and she asks him if victoria's been talking about her?
he says she was and implies that his mother was right. (victoria's daniel's mother.)
tyler tells amanda she has to go to the party with him or he's going to kill her. she doesn't want to go. his plan is to kill daniel with emily's gun and frame her for it.
because she killed frank and framed him.
frank, you may remember, was the grayson's security guy. he was also victoria's spy and very fond of her. when emily exposed him to conrad (conrad got a video, he didn't know who it was from) as threatening and then pushing lydia off the roof (lydia was victoria's best friend and conrad's lover - she's still alive but not on the show), he fired frank.
frank told victoria he was going to prove his loyalty to her.
he went off in search of the truth about emily. he found amanda at the strip joint. she agreed to answer questions about emily. they left the club. in the parking lot, amanda killed frank with a pipe.
amanda called emily, they arranged to move the body and they set tyler up planting frank's phone on tyler.
now amanda's hearing this and knowing that she's the 1 who killed frank.
she hits him with the dress hanger, runs off with him shooting at her.
she ends up at jack's dock. he's leaving on the boat. she tells him she loves him and asks to go to haiti with him. she promises she'll never leave him. honk-honk. it's the cab that delivered her. still waiting. she needs money for the cab. he gives it to her. after she's off the boat, he wipes his hand that was on amanda and sees blood.
(he doesn't know how but clearly it was from tyler's gun shots.)
he goes running up the dock as she's telling the driver to pull off. jack hops in his jeep and chases after her.
she ends up at the beach.
tyler corners daniel on the beach.
he's got the gun. he tells tyler that emily has lied to him over and over.
and that's all we see of their conversation really. we don't know if he told daniel the truth about emily.
emily gets a text. it's daniel asking her to meet him on the beach (the text is really from tyler).
jack arrives as gun shots go off on the beach. he runs and finds the man dead. and amanda over the body with a gun. he tells her to leave, take his jeep and go.
declan and charlotte flee the engagement party to run down the beach and go skinny dipping. jack hears them and drags the body into the weeds.
while he's hiding, a cell phone on the body goes off.
declan and charlotte see him and get out of the water and start getting dressed. declan's yelling at the 'peeping tom' and advancing on him. jack runs off.
declan finds the body.
victoria asks emily 'where the hell' her son it?
charlotte runs in screaming about daniel.
every 1 goes running out on the beach.
victoria runs to the body screaming and crying.
she lifts her son's head ... it's tyler.
daniel emerges with blood all over the front of his shirt.
victoria's thrilled that he's alive and hugs him.
he says something like, 'mom ...' and she stops him. her eyes dart around at every 1 looking. 'don't say anything,' she hisses. obviously afraid he's about to confess in front of witnesses that he killed tyler.
and that's it except amanda can't get jack's car started (she can't find the keys) so she hitches a ride with the japanese man.
it was 1 'omg' moment after another.
go stream it already.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
