Who went down and hit the floor? That was the question Revengers were waiting to find out on on last night’s midseason finale of ABC’s Revenge, the series that always rocks the house with a gut-wrenching emotional death scene did it again! But who bit the bullet? DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE EPISODE!
After a fantastically orchestrated battle scene between Emily (Emily VanCamp) and the evil Agent Taylor (Courtney Ford), with fistacuffs, guns, bullets, being thrown through glass, etc, as the two women battle two men happen on the scene one is Daniel (Josh Bowman) and the other is Jack (Nick Wechsler)! Rot-ro!
Throughout the entire episode, and in true soap opera tradition, Daniel came full circle through flashbacks with his manipulative father Conrad, yes, great to see Henry Czerny on screen again!
Daniel realized he had chosen the wrong path and wants to right the wrongs of himself and the family, something he tried to do back in 2008, but his dad convinced otherwise. In current time and in key scenes, after learning that Margaux (Karine Vanasse) is pregnant with his child, and as the in-battled duo decided to meet up and discuss their relationship and start anew … and as Margaux is getting all gussied up for Daniel, the younger Grayson ends up in the line of fire and takes bullets from Agent Taylor meant for Emily! Jack has also now happened on the scene intent on saving Emily.
Daniel dies in Emily’s arms! But not before there is a five hankie moment between the former marrieds, where Daniel and Emily sort of admit they loved each other in their own way: Emily: “You’re going to be OK.” Daniel: “Stop lying to me.” Emily: “I want you to know that it wasn’t all a lie. Not with you.” Daniel: “I know.”
So, what did you think of the final scene between Josh and Emily? Were you surprised it was Daniel that got the axe, although we knew awhile back Josh Bowman let be known he wanted to be written-off?
Revenge returns with all-new episodes on Sunday January 4th where we pick up at Daniel’s funeral! Comment below on your thoughts on the whole shebang!
