Hello Beautiful People,
Did y’all watch the third episode of Revenge? We did!
SPOILER ALERT. IF YOU DID NOT SEE THE EPISODE YET, & IF YOU WANT TO BE SURPRISED, DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER.
As usual, we were enthralled. As usual, we loved the quick wit of Nolan, despised the she-devil that is Victoria, and were in awe of the complication and contradiction that is Ms. Emily Clarke.
If you thought she was obsessed about taking down the Grayson family before, well, she’s taken it to a whole new level now. It’s clear that she will stop at nothing, nothing that gets in her way. Her manipulation of Amanda is starting to become rather disturbing, one would think that she’d lighten up on the girl, being that she’s pregnant. No. Such. Luck. She still crafts and schemes more than ever.
But there’s something about her that still makes us sad. Yes, Emily has gone through the ringer when it comes to her father, her childhood, and now this new information regarding her mother. BUT…it’s still concerning that she’s denying herself any sort of happiness. Emily has diluted herself into thinking that revenge will be enough to sustain her, to put her at peace, but, the revenge that she seeks is only weighing her down, covering her entirely to the point of suffocation.
The end of the episode was rather delightful, as we learned that the WHM’s name is Gordon, and, he and Emily’s mother were in love.
Yes, you read that right.
They. Were. In. Love.
We wait with bated breath to see where THIS plot line is going to go!
Until next week, take this into the classroom & journal your little hearts out:
Can we choose who we fall in love with?
Is it possible to start over?
What’s the policy on forgiveness when the ones we love break our hearts & trust?
