I’ve just enjoyed the latest episode of Revenge, ‘Collusion’.
Daniel spends most of this episode frolicking around with Emily. So, why is Daniel unleashing his charm offensive? Because boyfriend is determined to take down Jason Prosser, which naturally involves a trip to Los Angeles! Thanks to Victoria, Jason knows about Grayson Global’s plans to buy Stonehaven United (a disaster relief firm), and he wants to beat Daniel at his own game. Luckily, Daniel has a secret weapon: Emily Thorne. Daniel whisks Emily away to L.A. to meet with the Stonehaven representative in person, and the trip turns into one giant revengey reunion. Victoria’s in Cali Town to ensure that Jason Prosser gains access to Stonehaven, and guess what – Aiden’s there too.
Aiden is completely obsessed with finding his prostitute sister, and he’s riding with The Initiative’s Helen Crowley. This terrifying woman will only reunite Aiden with his long-lost sister if he agrees to kill Victoria Grayson, and despite the fact that this is against Emily’s revengenda, he says yes. Probably because the poor dude is extremely jealous of Emily’s fauxmance with Daniel, which makes sense considering that Em’s been having poetic sex dreams about Daniel.
Before killing Victoria, Aiden puts himself to good use and convinces Jason Prosser to bow out of his bid for Stonehaven, which means Victoria is all dressed up with nowhere to go. By which we mean she heads to Jason’s hotel room and offers to sex up a storm if he agrees to make the deal. So, who gets control of Stonehaven? After countless business meetings over roaring fires, Stonehaven goes with Grayson Global thanks to Emily sleuthing some dirt on Jason Prosser (with a little Nolan assistance). Although now Victoria hates Emily again, and girlfriend has to cover her tracks by telling Daniel about her participation in Vicki’s plans. However, he says he already guessed, and they get over it.
Time to check in on Jack. As we all know, this seaman is being harassed by the Montauk Mafia’s Kenny and Nate Ryan, who are currently using The Stowaway as a drug cartel/indie coffee roaster. The good news? Jack was busted out of jail. The bad news? Conrad wants Jack to pin the murder of Kenny and Ryan’s dad on Matt Duncan. Duncan ends up confessing to his sins and Conrad offers Kenny 50k to leave Montauk and never return. Unfortunately, Nate has a hissy fit about his brother selling The Stowaway, so he runs over to Conrad and convinces him to switch sides.
In other news, Charlotte is decides to change her last name to “Clarke” in celebration of her birthday.
As for Nolan, considering that this lover of popped collars is a professional nerd, you’d think he’d put his Dungeons and Dragons skills to good use and realize that he’s sleeping with an imposter. Instead, he gleefully house hunts with Padma before she slips up and refers to Carrion as a computer program, which finally tips Nolan off to her evil nature. So, what is Carrion and why does the Initiative want it? This program has the ability to knock Manhattan off its power grid in less than a millisecond, which seems fitting considering that The Initiative wants Daniel to invest in a disaster relief program.
But back to what’s important: Aiden’s mission to kill Victoria. Luckily, Emily realizes that Aiden has gone crazy and convinces him to abandon his plan, but then The Initiative kills his sister and he flies into a rage. He blames Emily for what’s happened, and threatens that if it is true, he’ll hold her responsible.
It was a very strong episode, and wrapped up a few interesting storylines. It’ll be fun to see how things continue to unravel in the coming episodes.
Thanks for reading.
