REVENGE “Betrayal” Review

REVENGE  "Betrayal" Season 1 Episode 3 – The third episode of  Revenge  establishes that this is probably the most appealing network drama of the fairly unsuccessful fall. But it’s not just appealing: this is actually beginning to flesh out into a really solid, potentially very good, show. My questions concerning VanCamp’s ability to lead the show have been firmly put to rest, and the show has gone in the direction I hoped it would: it’s a nasty, shady show that does not pretend, nor does it want to be, a show about good people just trying to get through life. Last week I mentioned that one aspect of the show I really liked was that Emily Thorne’s determination to wipe out her enemies causes some serious collateral damage. This week the show fully embraced its darker side as Emily says that she is not just satisfied with destroying a man’s career: but she wants to destroy his life. Now this is someone I can cheer on. I’m so sick and tired  of good people ontelevision . I want to see someone who revels in being an anti-hero.

Revenge Review: Hypocrisy & Betrayal

The past continues to haunt the residents of the Hamptons as Emily's Revenge won't be stopped. And we meet Senator Kingsley who has more than one " Betrayal " to answer for. One of the most fascinating things about this week's story is that we learn Victoria loved David. So the ice queen has a heart. She even tried to save him. Conrad must hate that and Victoria must despise him for stopping her.  It seems they've betrayed one another so many times that Conrad can't possibly buy Victoria's trust with baubles, no matter how flawless and expensive.

'Revenge' recap: Senatorial Shenanigans

There's something oddly comforting about how old-fashioned the horrible rich people are on Revenge .  Last week , Emily targeted a Wall Street banker whose worst crime was a little bit of wink-wink insider trading, which seems positively nostalgic in our post- Too Big To Fail era. This week, the poor sap in Emily's Sniper-Scope of Convoluted Vengeance was a shady politician who  clearly  had to have a secret. But it turns out that he was just having a heterosexual love affair, complete with an old-fashioned illegitimate bun-in-the-oven. No TwitPics ? No  wide stance ? Ryan Murphy would not be amused. Still, I'm digging the fact that Emily's vengeance-quest is taking her beyond the usual type of Hamptons elite. Senator Kingsley was just in town for a little money-grabbing speech to prepare for his re-election campaign. Victoria was surprised that he knew who Emily was: She was a senior volunteer in his first campaign. (Given how many years of set-up went into Emily's vengeance, I'm surprised she didn't tattoo her master plan all over her body, Prison Break -style.) Kingsley had another link to Emily, though. When he was a Federal Prosecutor, he led the case against Emily's father. Read More... http://tvrecaps.ew.com/recap/revenge-recap-season-1-episode-3/

‘Revenge’ Season 1, Episode 3, ‘Betrayal’: TV Recap

It was just another lonely night for Emily Thorne when the FBI busted down the same door (well probably not the exact same door) of the same beach house to arrest her. Victoria, her next door neighbor/father’s ex-lover had figured out Emily’s secret to destroy all the people who led to the demise of her father. But wait, it was all a dream. (Phew, we said. It was too early for Victoria to know Emily was really Amanda.) Scared, Emily heads for her gun to check out her porch. But it’s just Sammy, the adorable dog that was once hers and now belongs to the handsome albeit poor bar owner, Jack Porter. She tosses the gun into a drawer, which she naturally leaves open. Speaking of Jack, he’s looking at what seems to be a run of the same photo session between him, his little brother Declan (better known as Serena’s little bro in "Gossip Girl") and his dad, who is now dead from a heart attack. Declan and his father got in a fight the night dad collapsed and Declan is now regretting the words they exchanged. He wants Jack to scatter their dad’s ashes without him.
