finally, Revenge returns!!!!!! in less than 24 hours, abc will be airing the latest episode. i can't wait.
at 3rd, ty, dona and i did a roundtable 'Revenge: A discussion' and here's an excerpt to get us ready for tomorrow night.
Dona: You know who "they" are! Okay, my turn. The best take down for me was the doctor, Michelle Banks. Remember her? She's the therapist who put Emily away as a little girl. Remember how Victoria paid her to do so and paid her to punish little Amanda? So now she's a world famous psychiatrist and the author of books and more. And Emily takes her down hard. Without telling her wealthy clients, Michelle has been taping their sessions. And Emily not only gets ahold of the footage, she shows it at Victoria's Mothers & Daughters charity luncheon. The footage includes Victoria revealing that's she's never felt anything for her daughter Charlotte. Emily's so smart. She made sure to have a session of her own where she talked about not wanting to rush into sex. That way she had a clip for the luncheon as well and that has allowed her to escape detection repeatedly. If she was behind it, why would she have included her own embarrassing moment in what was broadcast? It destroyed the doctor. And someone killed the doctor in that epiosde. We still don't know who.
Ty: There's been a lot of murders. We know the real Emily who had to pose as Amanda since the real Amanda is posing as Emily --
Dona: That's so confusing.
Rebecca: I get more e-mails about the confusion when you try to recap and bring in Faux Amanda.
Ty: Moving on. The real Emily killed Victoria's head of security and possible boyfriend Frank when he came snooping around the strip club she worked at, trying to find information on Emily. And we know that Tyler, the bi-sexual, off-his-meds crazy, was killed by Amanda's former mentor Satoshi Takeda. Though everyone thinks Daniel killed Tyler. Takeda was on the beach when Tyler had a gun on Daniel. Daniel got the gun and shot Tyler. And Takeda hit Tyler on the head with a rock and then grabbed the gun to the relief of Tyler who thought he was going to get some help only Takeda then shot Tyler dead as Tyler tried to crawl away. But we don't know who murdered Dr. Banks.
Rebecca: I wouldn't be surprised if it was Emily. Fake Emily. Let's leave out real Emily and just talk about the Emily played by the star of the show Emily VanCamp.
Dona: Agreed. But would that make her too unsympathetic? Would audiences be okay with her killing in cold blood? As opposed to some form of self-defense?
Rebecca: I would. These people destroyed her life, she's back for revenge not tag-you're-it.
Ty: Okay, Rebecca covers Revenge at her site and she's trying to make sure people are aware the show is finally coming back with new episodes this Wednesday. That's one of the reasons we're doing this piece. Rebecca, what's the biggest question the show has to resolve?
Rebecca: Whether Emily loves Daniel, whom she's engaged to and who's charged with murder, or Jack, her childhood sweetheart who never stopped carrying the torch for her. I don't think they'll resolve that until the third season. But I agree with what Takeda told her on the last new episode that aired --
Ty: Back in February!
Rebecca: Yes, back in February. He told Emily that she was going to have to choose which one she loved and she couldn't protect them both. That's because Jack was on the beach and discovered Tyler's body and Victoria's looking for a way to pin the murder on him so Daniel can walk.
Ty: What do we know about what's happening when the show comes back this Wednesday?
Rebecca: Well I posted last week about an interview the actor who plays Declean -- Charlotte's boyfriend, Jack's brother -- gave in which he revealed that the show is going to spend some time flashing back to 2003 to give us some answers on what happened in the past that we don't know.
Dona: That'll be interesting. So everyone's going to be playing like their nine years younger.
Rebecca: No. He states that Jack will be played by the same actor but that Dec and Charlotte are too young to be played by the same actors. They'd be nine years old nine years ago.
Ty: How many more episodes are left to air?
Rebecca: Wednesday night kicks off the last six episodes of the season.
that should have your mouth watering for the best show on tv. i can't wait.!!!!
finally tomorrow. after all these weeks and weeks of waiting.
