from late last night, that's Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "The Cowardly Debater"
now for tv.
1st off, what happened? i missed a key scene on last week's 'revenge' (abc - sunday nights) and i also didn't grasp declan was stealing (also revealed that episode). just further proof that i can't mom and watch at the same time.
so to correct, the rich brat and the other guy stealing from the house and almost getting caught in the act last week? declan was 1 of them. what the hell?
i thought declan was smarter than that?
and now he's destroyed jack's life - barring emily or nolan stepping in.
what am i talking about? the man whose home it was wants money. now. or he's going to the cops. that's because declan and brat can't get the hot merchandise back.
so jack's trying to get the bar open to generate some money. they think they'll pass inspection this time but they don't.
so long story short, there's a reason why they don't and it's not the mold. the man whose home was broken into?
this is all a ruse with rich brat. this man wants to take over jack's bar. probably for the property value. but he and rich brat planned this out.
nolan's father died. his assistant informed him. she didn't realize she was informing him, she thought he knew. i really don't care for 'nolan in love.'
the big scene last week that i missed?
remember aiden (australian guy) killed the white-haired man when the white-haired man was trying to kill emily?
well she has the white-haired man's phone.
and last week, aiden went looking for information and found amanda clarke's mother cara. and i said if emily had gone on long, she'd know.
she didn't go along. but cara called the white-haired man's phone and left a message and emily knew that aiden had visited her mother.
emily is really amanda clarke. years ago, when she was a little girl, her mother was institutionalized, her father was having an affair with victoria grayson. victoria was going to leave conrad grayson for david clarke but then conrad was going to go to prison for terrorism, all the grayson money would be gone, victoria and conrad's son daniel would grow up in disgrace ... so victoria agreed to help conrad frame david for the terrorism. david went to prison, amanda went to foster care, then to juvie. victoria gave birth to charlotte grayson (who was really david's daughter). david died in prison. amanda turned 18, got out of juvie, began finding out the truth about her father, went to japan and was trained in the art of revenge by takada, went to meet her friend/enemey from juvie emily and paid emily to switch identities with her.
and then emily (really amanada) returned to the hamptons for her revenge.
so emily confronted aiden 1st thing this episode. where is her mother?
he gives her the run around and tells her that they have other things to focus on and there's probably a reason she hasn't seen her mother.
meanwhile, faux amanda, pregnant with jack's baby, has been welcome by victoria into the grayson family - remember? mainly so victoria can stay on charlotte's good side. charlotte knows too much for victoria to have her mad at her.
so charlotte confronts victoria on how awful she was to david and victoria wants to know where she heard about it and charlotte says that she read david's journal. victoria wants to read the journal and charlotte tells here that she'll have to ask amanada, they are her journals.
so victoria does that. faux amanda doesn't want to go to the graysons but emily tells her she has to. she explains her mother is alive and that victoria knew and victoria also saw her mother. (this is when david was on trial. victoria and the white-haired man went to the institution, unbuckled a strapped in cara, told her white-haired man was fbi and that she'd only be safe if she left with him.)
so amanda's wired so emily can hear and tell her what to say.
so victoria offers amanda money. amanda doesn't want money, she wants to know about her mother. victoria plays dumb claiming that cara died before victoria ever met david.
they get into a fight when charlotte walks in. victoria covers by saying they're throwing a shower for amanda tomorrow.
amanda goes back, still wired. emily shows up as well, she is the godmother.
after exchanging presents, amanda pretends to be sick so that the others will go on and give her time with victoria who is pretending to take her upstairs to lie down.
victoria hands her a check downstairs. $100,000. it's in a baby journal.
upstairs, victoria wants the journal as they've agree.
with emily listening in from a bathroom (listening in via the wire), amanda tells victoria the deal is off. she didn't want $100,000. years ago, she explains, her aunt charlotte visited cara in the mental institution right before her father went on trial.
'so?' victoria wants to know. so her aunt was an invalid and couldn't have gone. but look at the ledger with charlotte clarke's name on it and look at the check victoria made out to amanda clarke. the clarke is exactly the same. it was victoria.
they argue and victoria insists she's getting david's journal.
amanda walks out of the bedroom. the reception is now spotty for emily. she can't hear everything being said so she attempts to go after them but victoria and amanda are tusseling and amanda goes over the banister to the floor below where she lands with a thug and begins bleeding.
emily calls 9-11. charlotte rides in the ambulance with her 'sister.'
emily calls jack who meets them at the hospital.
aiden's gone back to the motel to talk to cara. she is not the nutty, scared woman they may have thought. she subdues and ties up aiden. she tapes his mouth shut. as she's driving off, she hears a report on the radio about amanda clarke being hurt at the grayson's.
at the hospital, they wait for news.
the doctor comes out. if it should come to a choice between amanda or the baby ...?
emily leaps in and says save the baby, that amanda told her that's what she wanted.
aidan gets free.
he's calling emily.
but emily's not picking up her cell.
she's watching something, looking into amanda's hospital room and ...
her mother is in there with what she thinks is amanda. stroking her cheek, telling her everything will be okay.
and then emily flashes back to childhood. cara's taken her to the ocean. and david's calling for them. cara tells emily it's time to play a game, pretend like she's sleeping underwater. cara then attempts to drown baby amanda.
we close with emily in shock and walking off.
the other thing? the initiative wants conrad and victoria under their control again. she blames conrad and he blames her.
