sunday nights, 'revenge' airs on abc.
i've been watching cnn all day and listening to npr tonight - for the nonsense that is tomorrow. i can't believe i'm absorbed by it, but i am. i say all that to say i may leave out something important. if i do, e-mail me and i'll note it tomorrow but my mind is elsewhere.
the big moment of the episode?
victoria and conrad's re-marriage.
out of love? no, so they can't be forced to testify against each other.
emily's big concern was getting mason treadwill (journalist and book author) to believe that amanda was amanda.
as you know if you watch, emily is amanda. amanda clarke's father was david clarke. she loved him very much. he told her that her mother (kara) was dead. actually, she went to the nut house after she tried to drown amanda. then david had an affair with victoria. he was in love with her and she was supposed to leave conrad for him. instead, she helped conrad frame him for terrorism.
amanda wants revenge and returns as emily thorne.
she swaps identities with a friend from juvie.
so she needs mason to believe faux amanda is real amanda. last week, he saw her back at the hospital and saw there was no scar like amanda should have. so emily's cooked up this cover story about while she was a stripper faux amanda had it removed.
faux's not sure he'll buy it. emily says she'll be distracting him with something bigger. we get a hint of that when faux repeats what emily fed her about how the guy who supposedly kidnapped victoria - the white haired man (he did not kidnap victoria) was actually close to conrad.
so maxon's got a phone number from her and calls nolan (as emily expected) to get him to run down the details.
meanwhile she gets aidan (the hunky australian) to help her. she needs to move the white haired man's corpse. she's had it in cold storage the whole time.
so she moves it to a trailer and sets up a little clue.
aidan and emily go to the wedding together. at the wedding, victoria mentions to daniel one of those cryptic things that's basically stop trusting your father.
so when emily's plan goes through it looks like victoria was part of it.
mason discovers the body as planned. and a cuff link of conrad's. and the police come to the wedding to arrest conrad.
when victoria storms up to the police and conrad and asks, 'what has he done?'
not what is he charged with?
kara knows something's up and has found the photo of david the day he died. victoria's torn out the white haired man (white haired man killed david in prison).
jack made comments about faux amanda being all over lately. nolan confronted his girlfriend about her going behind his back. daniel told emily he sometimes wondered what would have happened if he hadn't blown off the handle that night?
(ashley told him she saw emily and jack kissing. he confronted her - last episode of season 1 - and she ended up calling the wedding off telling him that he was turning into his father.)
so that was pretty much it. i'm sure i've forgotten something big but i'll pick it up next time.
oh, conrad's out of jail already. 'the inititive' that secret organization, sprung him.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
