Revenge Episode 2 Preview & Sneak Peeks: Let's Talk About Trust

It wouldn't be far-fetched to suggest that the entire series Revenge is about trust or, at least, the lack of it.  After all, Emily is taking her revenge against the very people who turned against her father and betrayed his trust.  Episode 2 of Revenge , airing tonight, is simply entitled "Trust" and I think it perfectly displays that word in a variety of forms. The Betrayal of Trust Once again, we're presented with a character who betrayed Emily's father.  This episode introduces us to "Uncle" Bill Harmon.  Bill is a hedge fund manager who used to be a family friend of the Clarkes.  In fact, he was the very person who gave young Amanda her dog, Sammy.  But, like the other conspirators, Bill testified against David at his trial.  We didn't get much clarification as to why Lydia agreed to testify, but it becomes clear later in this episode why Bill turned against his friend. In the present, Emily has set her sights on Bill, who is visiting the Hamptons for a polo match.  It's her apparent friendship with the very wealthy Nolan that catches Bill's eye and Emily plows ahead with her plan to take him down.  In some respects, it's almost too easy, but that doesn't mean it's not fun.  Perhaps the only problem I have with Emily essentially destroying one person per episode is that we really don't have enough time to get a feel for these conspirators.  Bill is portrayed as a bit of a money-grubbing snake but you don't understand more about him at this point in time.  I'm hoping that we'll get more backstory about all of these players in the future.  I would hate for them to just be one-dimensional characters.  But these things take time and I'm having too much fun right now with Revenge for this fact to ruin my enjoyment of the show overall.

Revenge Episode 2 Photo Preview: Moving on to the Next Enemy

In the Revenge series premiere we were introduced to Emily Thorne and her friends in the Hamptons.  The problem is, all of it is a lie.  Emily is actually Amanda Clarke and used to vacation in the Hamptons as a child, until Victoria and Conrad Grayson - and their friends - framed her father and had him sent to prison.  Amanda spent the next 17 years without a family, until she finally came of age and set out on her plan to destroy the very people who had betrayed her father. Newly armed with wealth, courtesy of Nolan, an internet entrepreneur, Amanda reinvented herself as "Emily Thorne" and eventually made her way back to the Hamptons.  There, she started inserting herself into society, ruled by her neighbor Victoria Grayson.  She set her sights on Victoria's son and set up Victoria's friend Lydia (who was having an affair with Victoria's husband).  Not only did Victoria exile Lydia from the Hamptons when the affair was exposed, but Emily was delighted that Lydia, one of the people who lied about her father at his trial, had been destroyed.
