Revenge is either wrapping it all up or creating the next chapter. Will Amanda Clarke finally have her “normal” life that she has worked for? Personally, I really don’t think it’s possible for her to have a normal life. Will any of these characters ever be able to live a normal existence? Will a blast from the past make Amanda/Emily realize that maybe this is as good as it gets? Here are some things to think about:

  • Big day: Jack switches FauxManda’s gravestone to say Emily Thorne and Amanda is there to watch and see. Is Jack finally starting to move on?
  • Victoria is finally getting what she deserves. And what is with the whole fragile act? She’s acting very strange. But we will get to that in just a bit.

  • Margaux now wants to get Victoria to go to the FBI and turn in evidence against Amanda/Emily. What happened to just letting it go? She finds out that Louise is also trying to help Victoria, which doesn’t sit well with Margaux. I can’t really blame Margaux for feeling like this; I mean…Louise did try to kill her. I know she was medicated but there really is no going back from that.
  • Tony and Nolan are looking like a real couple right now but does he have secrets? It’s more me being curious because everyone on this show has secrets.
  • Nolan’s new boy actually did give good advice and told him he needs to make up with his BFF, Ems. And they have…sort of. I think it’s important that she makes it clear that they will always have each other but she needs to get over the mess that Nolan made by keeping those files. They had a really good conversation, but how will their friendship evolve?

  • Ben…your time is going to be short-lived when it comes to your relationship with Emily. She says she needs more time. Yeah, that’s not good but we know he’s not her soulmate. You guys should know her soulmate by now. And if you don’t, you clearly have not been watching this program.
  • Emily is able to steal back the USB drive that Louise gave to Victoria. And Victoria knows it.
  • Oh Louise, how can you turn so far away from the person that actually saved you? If it wasn’t for Nolan and Emily you would still be a drugged up crazy lady. How we forget.
  • So who actually attacked Victoria? Is it Emily? I don’t think so. Who do you think it was?

  • So Louise again? Making a scene at a charity event. Louise has no reason to be loyal to Victoria. Is it just because Louise is jealous of the friendship that Nolan has with Amanda/Emily? That’s mature!
  • Stevie Grayson and David Clarke get into a little spat. They are trying to put these two together. I kind of like them together. He at least apologized saying that the fight didn’t happen because of her but because he found out he has cancer.
  • David has had enough issues, now the guy has cancer? Come on. It’s going to be Poor David soon.
  • David tells Stevie he was going to tell Amanda that he has lymphoma. But he changed his mind. When Amanda comes over she’s so happy because she finally got the USB drive containing the incriminating files back from Victoria. As we know, with those files in hand, she now feels her revenge days are over. (At least she thinks they’re over)

  • Jack makes a big decision to move to California with baby Carl and his mom. He really is trying to move forward and being around Amanda isn’t helping him. He tells Nolan to never say that Emily/Amanda loves him again. It’s sad because it is so painful for him. This is a Poor Jack moment but I don’t think it’s going to be like that much longer.
  • Nolan goes to his BFF to tell her that Jack is leaving and she says that she is not good enough for Jack. And, of course, here comes Ben who overhears this and finally realizes that he is not the one for Emily/Amanda. Told you, Ben. It’s time to move on.
  • It finally sinks into Emily that she is going to lose the actual love of her life and she goes after him but it seems to be too late. Or is it?
  • Victoria and Margaux meet up in the city somewhere and a man gives her the chair that used to be in Grayson Manor. Victoria’s acting funny and tells Margaux she is going to end this revenge with Emily once and for all. If I was Margaux I would be worried.
  • Amanda gets to the airport as the plane is taking off and who shows up but Mason Treadwell. And he’s pissed. I think he was the one at the end of last episode drinking on the beach. He tells her that she can’t live without revenge. Is this really true or does she have to deprogram herself since her mission is supposedly over? She doesn’t even know that her father has cancer yet!

  • Louise goes to Margaux and asks if she talked to Victoria and they both decide to put their differences away and work together to help Victoria. I don’t get this. It doesn’t feel right with these two.
  • We see Victoria in Grayson Manor with the chair and in a red dress. She puts on the gas and sits in the chair with a lighter. She’s totally lost her mind and then we see the whole house with her in it blow up in flames. How could this show go on without Victoria? This is nuts. Is Amanda going to be blamed for this?

Next week is the aftermath of the fire. We see Jack with Ben in the preview so, obviously, Jack returns to the Hamptons. But what does this mean for him and Amanda? What will Amanda do now that everything has gone crazy? It’s just getting weirder and weirder.

Revenge airs Sunday nights at 10/9c on ABC. If you want to know what’s up with Victoria — The Hollywood Reporter has an interview with Madeleine Stowe. Major Spoilers. You’ve been warned.

  1. I felt like they rewrote the character of Victoria in 44 minutes. I realize she likely did fragile + boom to frame Emily but that didn’t feel like her, nor did her sudden friendship w/Louise. I’m very curious about what they’d expect an S5 to look like. I’m OK if they’re wrapping it up.
