It was the best episode of the season thus far on last night’s airing of ABC’s Revenge, but there is still one more spine-tingling episode left of season three when the season finale happens this coming Sunday!
For now, after the episode revealed itself with so many twists and turns and character calculations, we hoped the episode would continue on and on!
It was Charlotte’s kidnapping which was the “impetus” (also named the title of the episode) to finally getting Conrad (Henry Czerny) to admit all he had done including: the bombing of flight 197, framing David Clarke for it, and becoming involved with a group of terrorists, but not before he tells Charlotte (Christa B. Allen) who has just returned from her “kidnapping” at the hands of Emily (Emily VanCamp) and Aiden (Barry Sloane), that she is an “ungrateful bastard!” He then threatens to eliminate her like he did Amanda, David, and a plane full of passengers!
Emily and Nolan (Gabriel Mann) were one step ahead of Conrad, and an unknowing Charlotte was wearing a transmitter that co-opted the signal to the press conference that Emily and Aiden, as the kidnappers, insisted Conrad and Victoria have to admit their crimes, if they wanted to see Charlotte back alive and well. However, that set-up allowed Emily and Nolan to broadcast Conrad’s entire tirade on live TV! And with that, and finally, Emily in an emotional moment with Nolan, realized she took down her man. She got her revenge on one half of the duo responsible for destroying her father!
Kudos have to go to Emily VanCamp for the final moments where Emily comes to realize she got some payback … welling up with tears of joy mixed with anger, mixed with exhaustion from the long fight she has fought. Henry Czerny was masterful in his confession scene to Charlotte with rage galore and showing no mercy for his sins!
There is so much more to the story, but as the episode concluded we learned that David’s ring has shown up via Jack (Nick Wechsler). Could he be alive after all? And Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) is on to Emily! She is figuring out she is the real Amanda Clarke! And Emily is hell bent on bringing Victoria to her knees!
Watch the pivotal scene from last night’s Revenge, where Emily finally nabs Conrad! Then, let us know what did you think of the moment? The performances? What do you think will happen next on the season finale, where we already have been teased someone will die!
