Revenge Finale Recap: Execution

Revenge Finale Recap: Execution
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen Revenge Season 3, Ep. 22 – “Execution.” When Revenge cleans house, they clean house.

Revenge Recap: Revolution

Revenge Recap: Revolution
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen Revenge Season 3, Ep. 20 – “Revolution.” Revenge‘s signature move of shoving its periphery characters off of balconies to land in comas has long been one of my favorite parts of this soapy masterpiece. This year it looked like the show was interested in upping its... Read more »

Revenge Recap: Allegiance

Revenge Recap: Allegiance
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen Revenge Season3, Ep. 19 – “Allegiance.” “Its no problem.

Revenge Recap: Blood
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen Revenge Season 3, Ep. 18 – “Blood.” It’s a strange juxtaposition to go from the world of Westeros, where revenge means wiping out an entire family over a wedding feast, to the Hamptons where revenge means snarky asides and brooding glares.

Revenge Recap: Addiction
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen Revenge Season 3, Ep. 17 – “Addiction.” Revenge works best when it blurs the particulars of Emily’s actual revenge plot and focuses what it does best; terse showdowns between Emily and Victoria, dramatic love quadrangles and fabulous, if illogical, soirées that serve as a backdrop to...

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen Revenge Season 3, Ep. 16 – “Disgrace.” Last week I got a little caught up in the absurdity of Revenge, but luckily this week the revenge plot was refocused with new evidence and a new target so I am more than happy to go on pretending... Read more »

Revenge Recap: Struggle

Revenge Recap: Struggle
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen Revenge Season 3, Ep. 15 – “Struggle.” This week Revenge returned to form.

Revenge Recap: Payback

Revenge Recap: Payback
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen Revenge Season 3, Ep. 14 – “Payback.” After over a month long hiatus Revenge made a lot of promises for its return. Was it later? Obviously. Sexier?
