Revenge Season 3 Review “Confession”

Picking up on the themes introduced in last week’s Revenge, “Sin” saw Emily recruiting Father Paul to try and convince Conrad to confess. While things certainly moved forward this week, there was a sense of futility to some of the events, if only because we’re still so early in the season.

The main thread was about Emily finding it in herself to forgive Father Paul, something she’s never done before. It was a big moment for Emily, particularly given how vicious she’s been in the past. Even Mason Treadwell, who seemed to show some remorse, is still rotting in prison. This last week’s episode really worked to sell why she would be willing to ease up a bit. Her scenes with Jack and Charlotte both served to remind her that her focus on revenge could ultimately destroy any chance she has at love and family. It was good to have the character development, as the parts with Conrad were pretty much destined to go nowhere. And though it was nice to see him planning to confess, it was ultimately for selfish reasons. Now, with Father Paul dead, it seems unlikely he’ll remain so noble next week.
