My guilty pleasure but I really enjoyed the first series blush

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 26-Dec-12 16:01:18

whoop whoop - cant wait smile

im sure she isnt dead - prob didnt get on the plane that blew up

Birdinho Wed 26-Dec-12 16:22:54

Oh thank god, other Revenge fans! Last year's total guilty pleasure, but NOT ONE OTHER PERSON I KNOW watches it. The fools grin

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 26-Dec-12 16:35:05

there are lots of us on mn who watch it - were all on a thread last time smile

Birdinho Wed 26-Dec-12 16:48:02

Ah good. Am quite new so will keep an eye out next time.

vjg13 Wed 26-Dec-12 19:43:15

I'm sadly very excited about this too!

difficultpickle Wed 26-Dec-12 20:40:15

It is not something I would talk about in RL, unlike Homeland that I'm happy to discuss in public! She isn't listed as being in the first episode so I wonder if she will be back.

victoriaplum01 Wed 26-Dec-12 23:56:25

Also a fan! Thanks for the tip-off - I've not seen any trailers. Such a frustrating end to the last series, just as things were looking up for 'Amanda.'

AmIthatTinselly Thu 27-Dec-12 02:16:15

Can't wait for the next series. Looks like AwfulAshley has got it together with wetDannyBoy, if the trailers are anything to go by.

Am looking forward to seeing more of the lovely Nolan

ilovemybum Fri 28-Dec-12 13:54:20

I've been naughty and have been watching season 2 online! The episodes have stopped until January now so might just wait and catch up with everyone smile

Tis very good wink

LightHousekeeping Fri 28-Dec-12 19:07:29

Me too!

tribpot Fri 28-Dec-12 19:11:21

Bonzer - can't wait. I don't know anyone in real life who watches Revenge so the MN thread was a real joy for me.

Marking place for fellow addict......wink

How can they string things out this series??!

tribpot Tue 01-Jan-13 23:30:26

I've been trying not to read the Count of Montecristo since someone pointed out on our previous thread that's where the story is taken from. However, I'm assuming we are now veering out of the original into the acid trip that can surely be the only way of keeping this ludicrous plot going for another 20-odd episodes smile

What I like about it is it doesn't give a toss about being bonkers. It hasn't quite reached the heights of a Mexican telenovela where everyone turns out to be everyone else's illegitimate half-brother, father and cousin rolled into one (and ghosts) but it's barking mad.

Another fan here I can't wait!!

Mayron Wed 02-Jan-13 23:41:14

yay!! that's made my night!! loved last series. my guilty pleasure too. roll on Monday......

Oblomov Thu 03-Jan-13 10:22:09

Was on old thread. can't wait for new series.

DevlinMaccabee Thu 03-Jan-13 23:08:46

Another Revenge fan here!

Thank you Bisjo, I would have missed it if you hadn't have posted this thread! Can't wait!

Oh yes we watch this! We often tape it and watch it later, I've never joined in on a thread on it

Oh yay yay! My sky+ planner was looking sadly empty with the end of Greys Anatomy and Gossip Girl!

northender Fri 04-Jan-13 16:44:33

I watched the first series but kept forgetting about it so missed whole episodes/parts of episodes. Can anyone attempt a brief summary of the plot or link to a summary? Will try to be more committed this time as I did enjoy what I saw grin

Northender if you've missed any bits, E4 are putting on a show beforehand at 8pm with a recap of the whole of series 1. I would probably omit something vital to the plot so best not ask me!

northender Fri 04-Jan-13 17:11:37

Ideal! Thanks LittleAB

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 04-Jan-13 17:12:33

i have the recap already in my planner smile

northender, how can you forget shock put on planner and series link it

whatkungfuthat Fri 04-Jan-13 18:27:26

I've seen the first one of S2, can't remember much about it so I can't wait for it all to get going again.

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 07-Jan-13 18:08:18

blondes gets excited

really looking forward to seeing this smile

esp the catch up at 8pm

CointreauVersial Mon 07-Jan-13 18:12:38

Oooh, thanks for the reminder!

I didn't even know about the recap show - what a good idea.

To be honest, I think DH is even more excited about the new series than I am. He's the big fan in this house.grin

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 07-Jan-13 18:16:01

It's back already ?? I watch loads of E4, and I didn't know it was tonight? How could I have missed that?

Doubt she got on the plane either. She's like a cockroach that one - she's survive anything...

So we have another Brit joining this series - the chap who played Niall in Hollyoaks. Tell me that it's not just me with such a love of crap tv ?

lilacrose Mon 07-Jan-13 19:47:58

Thanks for the info about catch up. Now just have to negotiate who gets to watch TV with DS1 who wants to watch Miranda. Remind me why I thought having only 1 TV in the house was a good idea?
Hope the magnificent Victoria didn't cop it last episode

Love this show far too much for someone who is close to 31.
Brilliantly bonkers wink

difficultpickle Mon 07-Jan-13 21:02:09

bugger, missed catch up but hopefully I'll be able to follow as it isn't as demanding as trying to keep up with Homeland grin

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 07-Jan-13 21:04:41

Fellowship - There's an age limit for schlocky tv????

Bugger. And I'm older than you.

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 07-Jan-13 21:06:22

That was the English bloke - Niall from Hollyoaks. He's the sun that Myra gave away.

And in other exciting Revenge/Hollyoaks crossover news, the chap who plays, erm - that one - her ex, is the brother of the Hollyoaks actress who played Maddie.

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 07-Jan-13 21:06:52

sun son

tribpot Mon 07-Jan-13 21:16:12

Lots of madness to get us started - and the recap show is well worth it just to hear Nolan camp it up whilst recounting the plot for an hour.

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 07-Jan-13 21:18:25

Jennifer Jason Leigh in this also? Do you think she's her mother?

tribpot Mon 07-Jan-13 21:25:53

Yup, looks like it from the flashbacks. I heart JJL!

TwllBach Mon 07-Jan-13 21:30:30

Nolan is much prettier this season grin

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 07-Jan-13 21:40:07

I really don't get the Takeda thing. Yes, I know it's probably not really to 'get', as in it isn't realistic or logical... But who is he, apart from some kind of revenge/fighty mentor? To make it odder, Takeda is a different actor from Series 1.

I knew she wasn't dead!
Did you know the actor who plays Daniel is an ex of Amy Winehouse and is friends with Kelly Brooks boyfriend?

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 07-Jan-13 21:52:19

Yup. And him and Emily/Amanda are a couple in real life.

sleepdodger Mon 07-Jan-13 21:54:42

Yes whatctime? I'm stick by cot with non sleeping toddler so unless 10pm can't sky+ it :-0

FrillyMilly Mon 07-Jan-13 22:25:59

Was that takeda with Niall from hollyoaks? I thought it was meant to be someone working for takeda. They didn't cast him based on likeness to the first actor. I love this show even if it makes no sense at all. I love Nolan too, I want a billionaire best friend. Ashley needs to be killed off this season.

Who is Jennifer Jason Leigh? <off to google>

BookFairy Mon 07-Jan-13 22:31:27

I found you all!

I don't know anyone in RL who watches it but I love it - the drama, glamorous outfits, shiny hair, Emily kicking ass left right and centre grin

Great opener smile

Lighthousekeeping Tue 08-Jan-13 01:12:32

I love Niall from Hollyoaks.

I'm so glad this is back. I don't know anyone else that watches it. Where has JJL been for the past twenty years?

hattymattie Tue 08-Jan-13 09:45:06

Because I was mumsnetting at the same time I missed the critical moment which explained how come Victoria is now allied with Emily. Can somebody please explain blush

whatkungfuthat Tue 08-Jan-13 13:38:17

Charlotte whispered into Emily's ear when they dragged her back to rehab. She told her where to find Victoria. Emily went to see Victoria supposedly to tell her that Charlotte was being kept in rehab (so that Conrad can control her inheritance) but she was mainly there to fit a hidden camera.

Orenishii Tue 08-Jan-13 18:07:19

Love, love, love this show. I've been naughtily watching s2 online and dh was in the room for an episode - he asked what I was watching and I described it as a "Japanese-y revenge-y thriller" in a bid to make it sound more cool and Tarantino-esque blush

Nolan has some even-more-awesome meta lines this season!

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 08-Jan-13 18:39:19

loved the recap with nolan, tho not his hair grin

knew she couldnt be dead tho seems an over the top extreme plan to pretend shes dead so the inheritence goes to charlotte

nasty daddy framing his daughter with drugs test, then again shes not his daughter is she

and sure fake amanda isnt preg with jacks baby, and did you see the ease she got off the bed when emily came into the room,literally bent her back in half - impossible if pregnant so crap acting grin

tribpot Tue 08-Jan-13 19:59:10

Fake Amanda is having the same kind of pregnancy as Amidala in Star Wars, where she could run down steps at nine months pregnant.

Charlotte doesn't know that Emily-Amanda is her sister, does she? Does she just think she's on her side because she's best friends with Amanda-Emily?

Isn't Victoria hiding so that the Feds can use her to build the case against Conrad without him having her bumped off again?

TwllBach Tue 08-Jan-13 20:18:36

I thought it was the government keeping Victoria secreted away to try and catch Conrad out?

I also thought that Charlotte was friendly with Emily-Amanda because Emily-Amanda made sure they were friendly when she was with Daniel? Has Charlotte even met Amanda-Emily?

whatkungfuthat Tue 08-Jan-13 20:25:53

I assumed that Victoria had done a deal with white haired man to save herself and get the evidence against him blown up. I thought the govt thing was just a lie she told Emily/Amanda to explain why she wasn't dead as presumably the blonde one with the cheekbones is?

BookFairy Tue 08-Jan-13 20:27:04

Victoria said the Feds were keeping her safe, but I'm not sure... Didn't we see her with The Man With White Hair at the end of the episode (on Nolan's hidden camera)?

Yes I also thought that Emily-Amanda made sure that she was friendly with Charlotte, even before she found out they were sisters.

MunchkinsMumof2 Tue 08-Jan-13 20:57:35

I'm new to rhis prog but can someone explain the Amanda-Emily Emily-Amanda storyline please? I watched the catch up but may have missed crucial bit.

tribpot Tue 08-Jan-13 21:05:49

Munchkins you've missed a pretty key part of the plot, you might want to go and watch the recap episode again.

Basically, the real Amanda (known to everyone as Emily) met the real Emily (er, vice versa) in juvie. As Amanda's dad was notorious, Amanda asked Emily to assume her identity when they left, and in turn took on Emily's identity. Jack was in love with the real Amanda but is so stupid he hasn't realised that Fake Amanda isn't actually her, even though he is still in love with the real Amanda. Fake Amanda reappeared in the middle of the last series to cause trouble, despite the love-hate relationship between her and Real Amanda.

MunchkinsMumof2 Tue 08-Jan-13 22:18:53

Ah, thank you, I was mumsnetting whilst watching the recap, thanks for the info!

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 08-Jan-13 22:23:03

I was wondering why Charlotte hasn't gone to fake Amanda as she thinks she's her half sister

Yet instead is very friendly with Emily real Amanda but obv doesn't know that

And would she really tell her Emily that her mum was alive ?

CointreauVersial Tue 08-Jan-13 22:24:12

Now then. I can't remember......

Does Victoria know that Emily is in fact Amanda?

If not, surely white hair guy will tell her?

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 08-Jan-13 22:27:20

No she doesn't and sure white man will tell her

InNeatCognac Tue 08-Jan-13 22:27:23

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 08-Jan-13 22:28:14

Good point - yes her therapist mentioned the postcards

tribpot Tue 08-Jan-13 22:51:35

Good point about the postcards, although it still seems weird to have trusted this mega-secret to your brother's ex-girlfriend.

I hadn't thought Victoria might be lying about the Feds keeping her safe, do we know anything about who the hell White Haired Man is? Except the killer of David Clarke.

How have Ashley and Daniel ended up together? (Except that on Revenge anything is possible, even probable). There wasn't even a hint of frisson in the first series. I would have thought she'd be more like to put the moves on Conrad in order to inherit Victoria's crown.

FrillyMilly Tue 08-Jan-13 23:04:19

Charlotte is pretty messed up though so presumably happy to confide the only person that seemed to show any affection to her.

I assume Daniel and Ashley got together because they are both such utter bores.

TwllBach Tue 08-Jan-13 23:44:06

I assume Daniel and Ashley got together because they are both such utter bores.

gringringrin

tribpot Wed 09-Jan-13 00:03:44

He must realise Ashley's way too clever to be a good trophy wife for him, though - five years, all pre-nup clauses satisfied and out the door.

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 09-Jan-13 00:32:58

I think Ashley always wanted him but went for his nutter mate as couldn't have Daniel

Hence why she was thrilled when saw Emily and jack kissing over the dead dog - such a passion killer or not lol

And then blabbed to Daniel - so much for being Emily's best friend as mentioned in the first episode

bloody fickle woman

SlatternismyMiddlename Wed 09-Jan-13 14:50:25

I can't really comment on the storyline of the episode as I was too mesmerised by Nolan! Love the show (in a never know which way it is going to go kind of way).

whatkungfuthat Wed 09-Jan-13 16:16:59

Isn't it typical that they made calculating Ashley a brit?

Let me see....I'm still loving Nolan. Real Amanda's hair is fab. Poor Charlotte. Poor Declan. Ashley is a bitch. Victoria is a bitch, but a clever one. No way is fake Amanda pregnant with Jack's baby.

tribpot Wed 09-Jan-13 20:57:29

Poor Declan is stuck with being the holier-than-thou moral centre of this unbelievable fuck-up, isn't he? I hope the poor sod gets something else to do except make wise-beyond-his-years pronouncements about the conduct of the others.

Marking place, haven't watched Mondays episode yet so trying not to read anything on this thread whilst I type.....grin

MilkshakeMaker Thu 10-Jan-13 20:46:31

I've just found this thread and saw the recap and ep1 this arvo (thank you poorly ds for sleeping all day) need to point out Daniel was also in holby city as a recurring patient too!

What I don't get, is white haired man knows that fake Emily is really Amanda so why is he keeping her secret?

CointreauVersial Thu 10-Jan-13 21:26:33

Exactly, Milkshake! My thoughts exactly.

tribpot Thu 10-Jan-13 22:01:24

So is Revenge not actually an American show but a ££££-spin-off of Holby City? The Hamptons is actually Cardiff Bay?

MilkshakeMaker Thu 10-Jan-13 22:15:50

Crap I've outed myself that I used to watch holby city!

Oblomov Sat 12-Jan-13 13:41:36

I missed episode 1 and am watching it on i-player now. Am a bit naffed off that episode 1 is a re-cap because I didn't need a re-cap. Am sincerely hoping that series 2 gets going, with episode2, on Monday.

tribpot Sat 12-Jan-13 14:09:49

Are you sure you're not watching the recap, Oblomov?!

tribpot Sat 12-Jan-13 14:14:33

You want this not this.

Oblomov Sun 13-Jan-13 17:22:57

Oh thank you Tribpot. I had just about worked that out and have just finished watching the real episode 1, rather than the re-cap.
Now I am back with you all, back in the game !!

tribpot Sun 13-Jan-13 17:42:14

Fantastic - I was worried that the plot that is killing the rest of us to keep up with was so basic for you that you felt it was little more than a recap grin

Lighthousekeeping Sun 13-Jan-13 17:53:39

It's like the writers make it up as they go along. Love it smile

thenightsky Sun 13-Jan-13 18:41:33

I hope they do not make it up as they go along! I wasted seven years of my life on another show that made it up as it went along...

Yes, you Lost writers angry

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 13-Jan-13 19:19:24

So fake Amanda goes for a test this week. Course it won't be hacks baby. Yah smile

tribpot Sun 13-Jan-13 19:30:43

Not that it could matter less but don't they have to wait for the baby to be born to do a DNA test?? Plus, given Jack hasn't noticed fake Amanda isn't even real Amanda, it's hardly likely he'd notice that it wasn't his baby.

MilkshakeMaker Sun 13-Jan-13 19:43:55

You can do a prenatal paternity test but its risky to the baby so not many mothers would agree to it. but yes they could get round that one. Be nice if it wasnt Jack's and him and the real amanda could run off into the sunset....Thats if he doesnt tell her to jog on for lying.

<note to self: It's not real>

AmIthatWintry Mon 14-Jan-13 00:49:53

Do you think that the white haired man is actually a Fed?

whatkungfuthat Mon 14-Jan-13 10:40:57

If he is then he's a wrong 'un as he killed David Clarke at the Initiative's behest. I suppose he could be really deep undercover but that would be stretching it too far

amazingmumof6 Mon 14-Jan-13 13:12:49

what I want to know is who the heck is the guy who trained with real Amanda and Takeda (Japanese master) and went after her to protect her?

is he her half brother but she doesn't know it (so they have the same mother but Takeda is his dad)

also did she go away to Japan cos she was actually pregnant with Daniel's baby and it's a big secret she'll pull out at the very end?

is real Emily preggers wit twins - and is she going to name name them Emily & Amanda?

and why is Nolan single? he's so gorgeous!

is real Amanda's mother alive or not?

what was Charlotte taking? she has a lovely complexion for a drug addict!

CointreauVersial Mon 14-Jan-13 13:39:57

That abandoned hospital, visited by fake-Emily and Nolan in a quest to find Em's Mum, which has apparently been lying empty for YEARS.....looks like they walked out of it yesterday.

Beds still made up, paperwork untouched, just a bit of dust. And not a squatter in sight. hmm

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 14-Jan-13 15:59:17

takeda must have something to do with Emily but dont know what - but not her dad

Oblomov Mon 14-Jan-13 16:42:22

Fake Amanda will get the paternity test modified to say that it is Jack's. I bet!!

amazingmumof6 Mon 14-Jan-13 16:44:27

cointreau my DH said the same - and they conveniently left ALL patient information in unlocked drawers!

can't wait for tonight's episode - bet thing ever that happened to Mondays!

amazingmumof6 Mon 14-Jan-13 16:45:06

I meant "best thing"

tribpot Mon 14-Jan-13 21:05:48

Ah Chambord raspberry liqueur, how I have missed your advent.

BookFairy Mon 14-Jan-13 21:55:04

Oooooo it's a cracker today. I have no idea where this is going?!

difficultpickle Mon 14-Jan-13 22:04:06

Was the bloke at the end the one that rescued her from the sea?

CointreauVersial Mon 14-Jan-13 22:19:28

Yes it was.

Sooooo.....tonight.......more twists and turns than a twisty turny thing!

BookFairy Mon 14-Jan-13 22:55:15

Yes that's the guy who is chummy with the Japanese guy who was training Emily-Amanda in the art of Revenge. I think he has had his own revenge situation. (I finally recognised him from Hollyoaks!)

Yes indeed Cointreau !

amazingmumof6 Mon 14-Jan-13 23:05:36

I think the guy who shot the Silver Psycho is real Amanda's half brother otr something. why does he care so much about her?

poor Daniel is such a fool, Ashley is soooooo annoying!

and who keeps their hostage/kidnapped victim in a pretty little cottage instead of the bottom of a well or locked up in a neglected warehouse?

(sorry, just remembered it all made up..)

such a good series, can't wait til next Monday.....

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 15-Jan-13 00:23:27

Fab episode smile

Who is the bloke - relative of Emily? Wonder if they have to pay the insurance pay out back - as sure there would have been one grin

tribpot Tue 15-Jan-13 00:29:06

Yes, I'm almost glad to know Ashley is just stringing Daniel along. It seems much more plausible than her actually falling for him. I should say 'plausible' is a relative term where Revenge is concerned grin

hattymattie Tue 15-Jan-13 06:47:57

Nothing to add really - just to say I'm very confused confusedgrin

MilkshakeMaker Tue 15-Jan-13 08:03:37

Phwoar Niale's hot!

amazingmumof6 Tue 15-Jan-13 08:21:34

I like Nolan's new hair cut! has he lost weight?

and how did Victoria escape from the plane, if she was on it while it crashed how come she had no injuries from it??

and if she got off before the plane crashed wouldn't she have been able to get her paws on the evidence?

MilkshakeMaker Tue 15-Jan-13 08:57:02

I thought that, I'm sure it showed her getting on the plane and it taking off...

amazingmumof6 Tue 15-Jan-13 09:18:31

and silver psycho fumbling with the wheels - I thought Conrad sent him!

who killed JFK might remain a mystery due to conspiracy theories, but this is the best murder mystery game, ever

proper addict here, I deleted the last series otherwise I would have watched every episode with a notepad jotting things down like a CSI

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 15-Jan-13 10:06:06

think Nolan has lost weight, dont like that or his hair cut sad

think victoria got cold feet about the plane or maybe white haired man told her as seems he sometimes works for her and sometimes for him

Oblomov Tue 15-Jan-13 11:24:28

Confused aswell.com
Guy who shot white haired man, can't be brother, surely?
Oh I just can't get it/keep up.

amazingmumof6 Tue 15-Jan-13 11:45:34

ok here's my thought -
white haired man took away real Amanda's mum, got her pregnant, sent her to Japan for his best friend Takeda to look after them.
she had a baby boy, but she died after eating some bad sushi.
all very sad.
boy started to punch things.
Takeda, who is too wise to tell anything to anyone, taught boy to fight and also made sure he kept an eye on real Amanda.
so boy grew up and ended up shooting his own father without knowing it. neither of them know it, but he's Real Amanda's half brother. he and Charlotte will get together,which is ok coz they are not blood relatives.......

ta-da!

MilkshakeMaker Tue 15-Jan-13 12:17:57

right, but that would make him much younger than real amanda...did he have a uphill paper round?

Jacaqueen Tue 15-Jan-13 12:32:18

PMSL at uphill paper round.

I haven't heard that expression in years.

I have just watched this on catch up and came on here to see if any of you lot could make sense of it. But I see you are all in the same position as me. Not a bloody clue. I do love it though.

amazingmumof6 Tue 15-Jan-13 12:52:06

what's uphill paper round (I did not grow up in England), pls explain?

MilkshakeMaker Tue 15-Jan-13 13:21:38

I've googled and copied coz I explain things pathetically!...

1.Uphill Paper Round

Can be used to explain why someone looks considerabley older than they actually are.
Eric: Have you seen Gavin recently? He looks about 40...

Simon: Yeah, he must have had an uphill paper round.

...its hard work carrying a massive bag of papers up a hill!

amazingmumof6 Tue 15-Jan-13 13:27:24

thanks milkshake maker I get it , hard work = premature ageing!

well, that's it then, no more housework for me or school run or anything!
I might get a PA to post for me so I can rest my weary fingers! grin grin

MilkshakeMaker Tue 15-Jan-13 13:30:15

..The trick is to use the dc as slaves!

Oblomov Tue 15-Jan-13 14:14:18

up hill paper round grin

MilkshakeMaker Tue 15-Jan-13 14:36:47

grin Google its says uphill!

Oblomov I remember you from the Motivation thread<waves> Hope you are getting on ok!

<<sorry for the hijack!>>

vjg13 Tue 15-Jan-13 18:13:42

Still fancy Conrad blush!

CointreauVersial Tue 15-Jan-13 21:56:52

Does anyone remember Ashley in Secret Diary Of A Call Girl? She played Billie Piper's mate Bambi. She's a good actress, imho.

And did you see the "what happens next week" clip at the end of Monday's episode?? Mrs Clarke is clearly alive and well......

Yes, I want to know who the mystery guy protecting real Amanda is because he seemed concerned about her from the off.

Did silver-hair guy confirm her mother is dead though?

That girl working for Nolan's company, do you think she has been planted there by Victoria or someone because he is in with Emily? I am being over-suspicious/taking this far too seriously, trust no-one Emily's master said!

whatkungfuthat Wed 16-Jan-13 11:49:53

I thought that about the accounts girl. Emily owns/owned 49% of the company, not sure if she sold it to free up the capital though.

amazingmumof6 Wed 16-Jan-13 12:32:28

accounts girl's too keen, isn't she?

Nolan better get a grip instead wandering around with cocktails!
poor hassled rich boy, has nowhere to stay - we have a pare room...grin

Yes, she is too keen!

I'm still loving Nolan.

amazingmumof6 Wed 16-Jan-13 12:48:30

I know, he's just gorgeous!

although I've just started watching catch up of Suits (series 1) and Gabriel Macht (plays Harvey) is seriously good looking.(yum)

it's on at 4pm every day on E4 - take a look, tell me what you think...(sorry off topic, can't help it...)

BookFairy Wed 16-Jan-13 18:29:43

amazingmum I've also been pondering if the guy who rescued Emily-Amanda is actually her half brother!

AmIthatWintry Wed 16-Jan-13 20:38:42

The accounts girl is very suspicious. I hope she isn't there to spy/double cross Nolan.

Nolan's new haircut has really taken him up a notch in terms of attractiveness

amazingmumof6 Wed 16-Jan-13 20:47:42

AmIthatWintry oh no, what if she's there to spy? if only he read MN we could warn him! grin

tribpot Wed 16-Jan-13 21:13:51

Perhaps accounts girl is going to be the innocent abroad - the female Jack who is just a plaything for all the scheming rotters in the Hamptons. Emily is jealous of Nolan's split loyalty and Nolan can't really believe that accounts girl is who she says she is .. etc.

amazingmumof6 Thu 17-Jan-13 19:28:30

BTW if anyone cares I was wrong before, Suits is on Dave

SlatternismyMiddlename Thu 17-Jan-13 19:43:17

Mmmm, still enjoying Nolan. I thought the most recent episode was rather good, proper intrigue. (I am easily confused).

For what is worth, round my way we say 'oh, he must have had a hard paper round', slight deviation to uphill paper round.

Slattern grin

tribpot Mon 21-Jan-13 21:51:56

Loving it again tonight - delightfully barking. I love all the swerving 'person who was never mentioned last series is actually integral to plot' twists.

BookFairy Mon 21-Jan-13 22:07:10

Indeed tribpot !

So Hollyoaks Guy is not Emily-Amanda's brother and also is getting revenge, plus her mother is alive and running a motel (for now).

I still love it despite the increasing implausibility of the latest twists grin

Oblomov Mon 21-Jan-13 22:22:49

When she was phoning to find out if leutenant kuzac was a real cop, is still didn't occur to me that this woman running the hotel was Amandas mum !!

tribpot Mon 21-Jan-13 22:34:14

Isn't Emily-Amanda's mum in 'the Hamptons'? (Assuming said semi-mythical area of the US includes Southampton).

Did Nolan have a bit of a 'thing' for Emily-Amanda's mum?

I love Amanda-Emily being tricked into assuming the persona in public - and then Jack semi-breaking up with her at the same time. I predict she's going to do a runner and leave him with the baby.

Why do the two Takedas not look anything like each other?

Takeda Number 1

Takeda Number 2

And surely if Revenge can get away with this, Downton could replace the actor playing one of the lead characters there <oblique reference for anyone who hasn't seen it yet>

I'm assuming it's only a matter of time before the thing unravels to the point where not only is David Clarke alive but the downing of the jet was staged as well.

northender Mon 21-Jan-13 22:35:56

Watching on +1 and thinking wtf???

Msbluebozooka Mon 21-Jan-13 23:07:43

OMG hi all yous select few cant believe iv found a Revenge fan club!! Nobody
and i mean nobody in my circle of friends watchers this, boring b**** i have to wait tomo now on 4od to catch up.I actually think all the blokes are a bit of alright even Conrad!! is that sad or what?
What is going on with that piece of jewellery that Declan took of the posh wanker? Plus doesnt Emily bug you sometimes?

tribpot Tue 22-Jan-13 07:03:29

I can't believe I forgot to comment on Declan's inexplicable descent into the world of burglary. It is both shocking and utterly tedious at the same time - surely it was only a few weeks ago I declared that Declan was the moral centre of the show and now all that remains is his refusal to rat out his co-conspirator when he got caught.

northender Tue 22-Jan-13 07:12:02

I still have no idea whats going on! I think it was better last series when I kept missing whole or part episodes. Then I'd be guessing what was going on. Now I feel like I ought to understand but in reality am no wiser grin

Oblomov Tue 22-Jan-13 07:18:56

I did think that the posh twit who told Declan that he 'obviously needed the money', so thus Declan would do whatever posh twit told him to do, was very very weak. I mean why? who cares.
And the whole Jack sat in the rocker. Didn't even give fake Amanda a hard time, not really. But then said I can't be with you. But does fake Amanda really care about Jack? I think not.
And the CFO for Nolan. She is well irritating.
And Emily. Yes bozooka she is irritating.
Actually the whole things is. Beyond farcical. Dh said last night, 'oh you're still watching this tripe, even though we realised in the first series that it was nonsense'. To which, I had to agree.
Have to agree with tribpot, that is getting so sensationalist, that I'm expecting David Clarke to do a Bobby Ewing and pop out of the shower!!
Addictive tripe smile

Oblomov Tue 22-Jan-13 07:19:46

I too am NONE-THE-WISER. And have watched every episode!!

diddl Tue 22-Jan-13 08:12:54

Think it´s getting a bit silly.

So did Jack only like fake Amanda because he thought that she was Amanda iyswim.

I know that he & Emily were liking each other-but would he if he knew who she is & that she hadn´t told him.

Plus lying to Amanda that the baby isn´t really his.

Ashley & Daniel-justhmm

I think that the white haired man was fake Emily´s father-hahaha!(evil laugh)

BartletForTeamGB Tue 22-Jan-13 15:54:11

We enjoy watching it, partly because we've realised that it is completely farcical & full of holes, as if it has come as a surprise to the writers every week that they've suddenly got to bash a script out!

BookFairy Tue 22-Jan-13 15:58:59

Yep I think Jack is still harping after the Amanda of his youth and only got together with her because of the memory of how close they were. I'm not sure how he would respond if Emily-Amanda told him the truth. He may be too betrayed? I think he'll find out soon. I also think there's a strong possibility of Fauxmanda leaving. Perhaps they kill her off, thus solving the issue of what to do with the baby?

Declan has turned to burglary as the boy he was with paid him to hold on to something (possibly weed?) and probably paid him to help him burgle that house. Declan needs money to make it on his own and give Jack and Fauxmanda space with the baby coming. I think it was a set up and the owner of the house will turn out to be dodge and try to blackmail Jack/Declan.

Ashley always said she would do anything (or anyone) to make it in the top social circles, hence her clinging to Daniel like a desperate limpet.

Daniel wants to protect his family and the business but clearly doesn't know who he can trust.

Isn't Nolan gay? Not sure how the new accounts girl comes into it...

Perhaps Emily-Amanda's mother isn't actually her mother, hence why the mother hasn't tried to find her?

My afternoon off has been productive pondering all of this grin

tribpot Tue 22-Jan-13 16:12:10

No, Nolan is bi (I think - although that was last series, he's probably gay as Christmas now).

BookFairy - Ashley is being paid to keep Daniel in check, I still think she's got her eye on Conrad.

CointreauVersial Tue 22-Jan-13 17:10:20

Waaaay too many twists this week.

I haven't a clue who's siding with who, who knows what, and which side I should be on.

If Mr Whitehair, who was obviously shacked up with Emily-manda's mum, knew that Emily was actually Amanda, then why was he trying to kill her? Whose side is Daniel on? WTF is Mr Hollyoaks involved at all?

<clutches head>

CointreauVersial Tue 22-Jan-13 17:11:32

Oh yes, and Golden Declan's swift descent into petty crime, clearly a massive set-up job, but why?

MilkshakeMaker Tue 22-Jan-13 19:31:41

Just watched it on catch up and am clueless. The only thing I figured out is hollyoaks mans name is Aiden!

tribpot Tue 22-Jan-13 19:44:09

And he's not Emily-Amanda's brother. WE HOPE wink

diddl Tue 22-Jan-13 21:07:09

Does anyone remember a series called Soap??

it got more ridiculous as it went on?

And the episode used to end with a voiceover?

Something like "Confused? Tune in to next week's installment..."

tribpot Tue 22-Jan-13 23:19:04

I remember Soap very vaguely - I like the honesty of the voiceover grin

I have to say, this is very mild compared to a Latin American telenovela - there haven't been any actual ghosts yet, just a lot of people who were meant to be dead actually being alive. No-one's been possessed either.

And think of the high camp ridiculousness of Dynasty - wasn't Adam Carrington poisoned through his wallpaper? Steven Carrington was the gayest straight man alive (or poss the straightest gay man) and had at least one complete change of face. Fallon and the alien abduction ... it makes Dallas and the 'it was all a dream' sequence positively grittily realistic grin

amazingmumof6 Wed 23-Jan-13 00:12:40

this was a bit much, it's like every 5 minutes was written by a different person who's just had a nap!

you know that game when you have a piece of paper and draw a head, then fold it down, pass it to the next person who draws the neck and shoulders etc. this plot is just like that, impossible to follow!

I'm going to watch all 3 episodes of new series again, with a notepad, jotting down questions and answers...

I think that even if there was an epic CSI crossover, Nick, Cathrine, Horatio and Mac together still couldn't figure this mess out!!

we are big fans, but I liked it when it was "reasonable" - now it's getting really silly with more holes then a sieve..

tribpot Wed 23-Jan-13 00:20:34

Yes, amazingmumof6 "and the consequence was: the dog was the terrorist" (for example).

Msbluebozooka Wed 23-Jan-13 00:29:35

Milkshake I'm with you Hun just watched it on catch up and I must say I am clueless too! It's beginning to bug me now, especially Victoria and that weird mouth of hers.
They should have ended it with a happy ending last year
Amanda coming clean and getting off with Jack and V and Conrad going down.
There is too much to take in now especially after a days work and putting dss to bed.
But then again it wouldn't be Revenge, remember Desperate Housewives that was like this at the start with someone dead in a suit case in a lake. Mad lol

My head hurt after Monday night's episode, but in a sort of good way.

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 23-Jan-13 19:18:33

havnt read the latest on here till now, now ive watched mondays episode

have to say blondes is puzzled - doesnt take much grin

so white haired man is/was with emilsy/amanda mum - was wondering if he was her dad, and he didnt know which emily/amanda was who - and he thought he was killing emily

who is the dark haired man- who seems was emilys lover, so hopefully not brother

nolan is bi, or has sex happily with men (daniels room mate/psycho) for the fun of it

hopefully he will get with emily/amanda as he always seen happy to help her find out the truth about her father

yah that jack isnt with amanda anymore, is the babys his? know emily told amanda that he wasnt but thought she was lying to make amanda feel bad

who or what has tekeda got to do with anything [hhm]

blondes brain explodes - like on fringe

tribpot Wed 23-Jan-13 19:32:08

So Blondes - I think the baby is Jack's, Emily-Amanda told Amanda-Emily it wasn't in order to have a hold over her in the future.

Nolan is definitely in favour of romping with boys but I think he did say last series he was about 40% gay or summat.

Seems a bit of a shame to have bumped off the white haired man just at the point where he might be an interesting plot twist. So now what? Emily-Amanda's mum swears revenge on her, not realising she is in fact her own daughter? It's very Greek Tragedy.

Takeda still just appears to be a useful plot device - running a school for vengeance-seekers? WTF?

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 23-Jan-13 19:47:39

dont want the baby to be jacks sad

amazingmumof6 Thu 24-Jan-13 11:04:24

blondes nor does he ! grin

amazingmumof6 Thu 24-Jan-13 11:11:45

tribpot and maybe white haired man (Gordon) is not really dead because Aiden only shot his identical twin!

Emily now has got the pocket watch with her mum's photo, so if she sees her she'll recognize her, but who cares about that? we want revenge, not soppy reunions!!!!!

amazingmumof6 Thu 24-Jan-13 11:15:46

oh and you know how the first episode started with the "Amanda" boat sunk and all - who's going to die then?

every time they talk about the boat or show it I get like oooh it's going to be Jack, no wait, Declan, no maybe Declan's burglar mate, no hang on could it be Conrad? who's dead hand is the bracelet on????? so annoying!

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 24-Jan-13 11:30:04

a boat sunk?? dead hand/bracelet??

how did i miss that sad

an evil identical twin would be just the right thing grin

so will emily want to get revenge on her mum who left her to rot in juney but knew she was alive??

diddl Thu 24-Jan-13 12:31:51

I thought that we already knew that the baby is Jack´s but she lied when she told Amanda that it wasn´t his?

whatkungfuthat Thu 24-Jan-13 12:54:35

That's what I thought too diddl

diddl Thu 24-Jan-13 12:56:17

Glad I´m not the only one!

In fact I thought that Nolan had commented on it?
(May have imagined that tbh)

tribpot Thu 24-Jan-13 13:35:13

Well of course we don't know that Amanda-Emily didn't fake the DNA test in order to psych out Emily-Amanda smile

Didn't Victoria do that in the last series trying to prove Charlotte was Conrad's daughter?

MilkshakeMaker Thu 24-Jan-13 15:19:26

Yes it showed Nolan saying it was really low of her to tell fake Amanda it wasn't Jacks, when it was. Was quite good thinking considering how many times she has thrown it in her face to get her way tho..

And I saw the boat under water in the first episode too, am waiting for bracelet to be given to figure out who goes.

BookFairy Thu 24-Jan-13 16:27:13

I don't remember the boat/hand situation of the first episode. Looks like I need to.check out 4 OD!

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 24-Jan-13 18:40:53

Ditto fairy

tribpot Thu 24-Jan-13 19:22:56

Yes, there was diver right at the beginning. I think you were meant to think he/she was diving for the wreck of the plane. But then it became clear it was the Amanda that had sunk, and there was a woman's hand with a bracelet on inside.

diddl Thu 24-Jan-13 20:08:04

I thought that it was a man´s hand/arm!

Long sleeved shirt & cufflinks!!

amazingmumof6 Thu 24-Jan-13 21:13:06

diddl I think the arm/hand is a bloke, but also it could be just about anyone...
I just hope it's not me, I don't want interactive telly to go that far!
< what's emoticon for fake worried?>

tribpot Thu 24-Jan-13 21:37:25

Oh blimey - have we group hallucinated a bracelet?

whatkungfuthat Thu 24-Jan-13 21:50:37

Was the bracelet the thing the rich kid gave Declan to look after? I'm sure it was jewellery.

tribpot Fri 25-Jan-13 00:33:05

Right, I am watching it again.

It's Labo[u]r Day weekend. The diver says there has been some kind of fire or explosion, 'this is not an accident'.

The diver picks up a photo of Jack, Declan and their dad. Then he picks up a compass in a sort of lockety thing.

Then he sees a hand. And indeed it does look more like a male hand and arm in a shirt (no cuff-link). He says 'We've got a body, have the captain radio the coroner' Emily-Amanda's voiceover says "a person's true destiny can only be revealed at the end of his journey".

Flashback three months to Emily-Amanda drowning whilst tied to a stake in the water off Japan ...

diddl Fri 25-Jan-13 07:14:28

Maybe I just saw a button?
(Clings to hope that am not seeing things!)

If it is a man in a shirt-does that rule out Declan & Jack??grin

tribpot Fri 25-Jan-13 07:41:54

LOL. I will now re-watch and possibly grab a screenshot. I believe that there may have been a button.

amazingmumof6 Fri 25-Jan-13 10:14:35

it's the pocket watch the diver grabs - the one that had real Amanda's mum photo!!!

amazingmumof6 Fri 25-Jan-13 10:19:08

also yes it is a shirt, but more the checkered flanel type (I called them cowboy shirts), and there's a wedding ring on the ring finger (as it's a left arm)!!! you can see the ring clearly in 3 separate shots

so I think it is Jack, he does have those sort of shirts - and if he proposes to fauxmanda that will seal his fate - oh no!!!!!!!!!

and no bracelet or cufflinks (see why the police has trouble with witness statements!)

amazingmumof6 Fri 25-Jan-13 10:20:47

it is definitely the pocket watch, only the photo is missing - what does that mean??

CointreauVersial Fri 25-Jan-13 11:25:49

Could it be Mr Hollyoaks ( what was his bloomin name again?)

amazingmumof6 Fri 25-Jan-13 11:29:58

you mean Aiden, they guy who was training with Takeda? I thought he left..

it has to be someone married, wedding ring people!

it is Jack, oh no, it will be Jack....

diddl Fri 25-Jan-13 12:23:22

Well if it´s Jack, then I wonder what happens to make him marry & who??

amazingmumof6 Fri 25-Jan-13 12:24:49

of course he'll propose to baby's mother as decent bloke - won't he?

amazingmumof6 Fri 25-Jan-13 12:25:41

quick wedding before baby pops, then honeymoon on the boat with a new born?!

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 25-Jan-13 17:21:21

right had to re watch first 2 mins on demand grin end in 12days so watch now if you want to

def an arm and wedding ring, def male as looked hairy

hope not jack, maybe its conrad

amazingmumof6 Fri 25-Jan-13 17:38:00

blonde good call! yes, it could be Conrad as they are now pretending to be happily married, so he'd wear a ring (if he ever did) wouldn't he?

what do you think about pocket watch?

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 25-Jan-13 17:45:50

he does wear a ring

and no loss if he dies as then revenge is complete smile

hmmmmmmmmmm about pocket watch

BookFairy Fri 25-Jan-13 17:49:31

Thanks to those who have re-watched the first episode!

Right. So the dead man could be:
Jack (after marrying Fauxmanda, for the sake of the baby).

Daniel (after being tricked into marrying Ashley then trying to escape on Jack's boat - thinking outside the box).

Erm.....

Conrad (in disguise, running away on Jack's boat after it became public that he paid a Dr to keep Charlotte in rehab so he could get her inheritance. The boat is tampered with, or Emily-Amanda chucks him overboard).

Or:

Another new character who will be introduced as being crucial to the plot.

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 25-Jan-13 18:02:48

or Nolan if he gets married to emily - sure they will end up together

so main males are

conrad
jack
nolan
aiden
declan

amazingmumof6 Fri 25-Jan-13 18:28:42

book fairy - you are right, of course it is someone who we don't know yet! why did I not think of that?(angry with self)

so who could it be? the butler? the postman? the milkman? the butcher, the baker or the bloody candlestick maker?grin

or maybe Elvis? I heard he was alive.....

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 25-Jan-13 18:39:30

how far in advance was the boat scene meant to be?

amazingmumof6 Fri 25-Jan-13 18:44:45

labour day weekend, which will be 3 months after real Amanda was tied to pole underwater in Japan

diddl Fri 25-Jan-13 18:50:29

Yes it could be someone unknown to us yet.

What about Mason Treadwell?

Was he married?

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 25-Jan-13 19:03:54

a year from ist one

wasnt the murder on the beach labour day weekend

LadyInPink Fri 25-Jan-13 19:39:06

What is this about the first episode showing the sunk Amanda and a hand etc etc? Do you mean the first episode of series 1 or this series? I must have either forgotten or missed it. Please enlighten me <wails>

Absolutely love Revenge and am very hooked although it is TV tripe (DHs words) but very addictive.

I gave up on Lost after the second or perhaps 3rd series as it got ridiculous so hope I don't with Revenge.

amazingmumof6 Fri 25-Jan-13 21:05:30

ladyinpink boat sinking is episode one, series 2 (shown on 7th January)

2 mins in the very beginning

BookFairy Fri 25-Jan-13 21:26:04

amazingmum another new character seems the most logical answer!

tribpot Fri 25-Jan-13 21:29:34

Some screenshots (final one I have removed some of the shadows from)

BartletForTeamGB Fri 25-Jan-13 21:49:55

Isn't that first picture the compass that Emily gave to Jack?

LadyInPink Fri 25-Jan-13 21:52:43

Amazingmumof6 - OMG i thought Jan 14th was the first episode, right I need to go on catch up and watch it. Thankyou so much smile

tribpot - the hand is wearing a wedding ring and Jack is not married afaik. Curiouser and curiouser...

tribpot Fri 25-Jan-13 21:56:04

Ooh, you're good, BartletforTeamGB. I'd forgotten it but in Series 1 - and I quote "Emily gives Jack the gift of an old mariner’s compass as a thank you for fixing her porch swing."

BartletForTeamGB Fri 25-Jan-13 22:08:38

blush

(been spending too much time watching TV while dealing with hyperemesis]]

tribpot Fri 25-Jan-13 22:13:45

Hyperemesis = West Wing marathon, surely!

Hope you're feeling better soon.

BartletForTeamGB Fri 25-Jan-13 22:41:11

smile

We watched all of the WW when I had hyperemesis right through my pregnancy with DS. I've just not found an adequate replacement for this time...

AmIthatWintry Sat 26-Jan-13 00:05:40

Just watched on E4. Do you think the man that came looking for Declan, who seemed a bit shifty, could be the one that ends up as the body under the sea?

He looks like there is much more to come from him

amazingmumof6 Sat 26-Jan-13 00:19:27

I really think it's the pocket watch real Amanda found on white hair bloke when Aiden shot him...

- the one with her mum's photo in - only the photo it fell out due to boat sinking. it just looks too shiny to be an old compass, isn't it?

amazingmumof6 Sat 26-Jan-13 00:22:49

tribpot thanks for screen shots BTW

tribpot Sat 26-Jan-13 08:11:09

It's definitely definitely a compass, although well done for reminding us about the White Haired Man's pocket watch. Further intrigue!

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 26-Jan-13 09:25:09

tripot fab pics,im impressed grin

could it be white haired man in the boat - what did they do with his body??

did he have a ring - maybe he was married to amandas mum

BookFairy Sat 26-Jan-13 16:23:10

AmIThatWintry I've also been pondering why the man who Declan supposedly burgled has come into it...

tribpot thank you for the screenshot photos! I've been studying them but am none the wiser.

LadyInPink Sun 27-Jan-13 10:41:35

Right i'm all up to speed after watching the 1st episode last night smile Can't wait for tomorrow now...

LadyInPink Sun 27-Jan-13 10:43:39

Could the guy on the boat be the guy who rescued her from the sea in Japan? The hand looked puffy which could be indicative of age or size (thinking Jack or white haired man)

tribpot Sun 27-Jan-13 10:52:22

Well as an experienced watcher of crime shows, I must say the puffing could be due to being submerged in water - although that's in the real world of actual science, not the world of risk-free instant DNA tests on unborn children smile

amazingmumof6 Sun 27-Jan-13 15:54:03

tribpot - I watched diver scene again (6 times..) and you are damn right, it IS a compass!

as the diver lifts it, you can see the needle moving swiftly - that wouldn't happen with a watch .

and did you realize that onthe photo the diver looks at Jack is wearing the same grey checkered shirt that's on the arm! (or at least very similar)

that is a casual type of shirt, not one Conrad or Daniel is likely to own. or Takeda for that matter.

so unless the shirt is a re-dress, It's probably Jack. sad

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 27-Jan-13 17:50:51

def a compass not a watchsmile and nooooooooooooooooo cant be jack sad

maybe someone borrowed jacks shirt

'blondes grasps at straws'

tribpot Sun 27-Jan-13 17:54:35

I am still holding out hope it's Amanda-Emily in one of Jack's shirts. In the final screenshot in my note (which I have lightened) you can see the darkness that looks like hairiness is shadow/smoke/potentially horrid peeliness of dead skin <shudder>

It wouldn't make sense to kill Jack off because without him Emily-Amanda would just go into auto-destruct mode. So unless they only want to make two series, and the second ends with everyone dead, I am going to keep believing in Jack.

amazingmumof6 Sun 27-Jan-13 18:09:46

well it's not long now, will get some more clues tomorrow...or more confusion grin

I didn't know a compass would work underwater confused of all things we've seen so far that puzzles me the most!grin

tribpot Sun 27-Jan-13 18:13:20

LOL amazingmum - it's a magnet. No reason why it wouldn't work underwater (otherwise submarines would just have to point in the right direction and hope for the best ... )

I think the reason you're suspicious is because of most of the 'science' on the show is so ludicrous grin

amazingmumof6 Sun 27-Jan-13 22:59:36

tribot
" it's a magnet!" grin
I was actually thinking that it would not work because it 's got WET on the inside (see the bubble?) so the parts might get rusty and needle would not swivel - so not the magnet bit, but the actual mechanism....
(sorry for crap phrasing)

anyway, I know what you mean about distorted information!

My favourite misrepresented fact is a parachuter "shooting upwards" when the canopy opens....

(just in case someone didn't know, it only looks like that because the person filming it is still free falling at that point, but the other's speed slows down....)

I should start a thread about "classic cliches in the movies":
- lonely hero beats gang up one by one;
- US phone numbers start with 555
- oddly shaped sheets fully covering naked woman, but bloke's side is only belly button high
- how we always see the bra falling to the floor, but when they finish she's already put it back on - I mean who does that?
- if there's a noise in the basement the woman checking it out must wear a see through nightie and so on....

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 28-Jan-13 15:30:36

5.5hrs to go

'blondes gets excited'

MilkshakeMaker Mon 28-Jan-13 20:20:28

Wahoo, I'm excited that dp has gone out for the night and I can MN whilst watching revenge at the time its actually billed, not the next day on catch up!

MilkshakeMaker Mon 28-Jan-13 21:04:48

wait wait wait, what did Victoria just burn?

BookFairy Mon 28-Jan-13 22:03:56

Victoria threw the hospital visitor log (from when Emily-Amanda's mother was in hospital) into the fire.

The entire episode made me shock

No idea what's going on with the secret gang of rich people, but I love that the Emily-Amanda/Fauxmanda/Emily-Amanda's mother storyline has cranked up a step!

CointreauVersial Mon 28-Jan-13 22:07:53

So. Padma.

Goody or baddy?

Ashley.

Goody or baddy?

Emily's mum.

Goody or baddy?

Confused, much?confused

BookFairy Mon 28-Jan-13 22:29:52

I'm presuming that Emily-Amanda's mum is a baddie as she tried to drown Emily-Amanda when she was a child. Perhaps she isn't actually Emily-Amanda's biological mum?

I think Padma is a goodie and her relationship with Nolan is to be the happy storyline. Though there's still time for her to be a baddie and try to con him or something!

Ashley. Becoming a goodie? Delusional in her feelings for Daniel?

I still love it grin

MilkshakeMaker Mon 28-Jan-13 22:39:06

Cor that was steamy between Daniel and Ashley!

What was the framed thing padma went all weird over?

I think they all are baddies.

amazingmumof6 Tue 29-Jan-13 00:06:25

KARA is a massive psycho - if there ever was one!!! I mean trying to drown your own kid?! shock WTF!

and she had a taser gun - unexpected!

she'll probably try and kill Fauxmanda...or I bet she'll look for but won't find a childhood scar, so she'll figure out it's not real Amanda!!!!

milkshake she picked up something saying David Clarke. I'll check it tomorrow....

blondie - you can relax, Jack's probably not getting married now so it's not his dead arm....[relief]

now I think it will be the John Hannah look-alike baddie - he'll take the boat as payment or something like th

amazingmumof6 Tue 29-Jan-13 00:10:35

ohh and did anyone else pick up on the " my husband" line?

so Kara (real Amanda's mum) and Gordon (white haired man) did get married - but I wonder if he killed David Clarke and then got together with Kara or they somehow met first and then Kara got Gordon to kill David as a - wait for it! - revenge for being put in a loony house.

amazingmumof6 Tue 29-Jan-13 00:17:38

oh my goodness I just realized the dead person could be real Amanda's mum!

she's married, so wedding ring explained, clothes - can be hers as she's on the run, won't be glam, hand - can be, I don't think she has long, manicured nails....

diddl Tue 29-Jan-13 06:46:01

How about David Clarke turns out to be the baddie in all of thisgrin

Who are this bloody "Initiative"??

The guy Declan stole from-is it him who´s dead?
(not looked for wedding ring on him)

It´s a male hand/arm in the boat, isn´t it?

amazingmumof6 Tue 29-Jan-13 08:58:24

the boy and the dodgy bloke could be father and son, or similar, coz the whole burglary thing is a set up to get the bar (inc fake inspector)

I think the boy pinched Declan's ID and left it there to be found - so the dodgy bloke could prove D was there.

I'll look for wedding ring on him and will check the frame that Padma picked up in the storage room - or maybe we can ask CSI tribpot to do some more freeze shots? wink

the arm could be really anyone's, it is more likely a bloke
- the divers are "looking for survivors", but they wouldn't do that if the boat had sunk days or weeks prior to Labour day, therefore the body/arm wouldn't have been in the water for long enough for it to swell up and look like a bigger size than what it is, which would indicate a woman)

is that logical?

amazingmumof6 Tue 29-Jan-13 09:01:10

and I just love how quickly Aiden's neck and hands healed up from the taser marks and glass cuts!grin

northender Tue 29-Jan-13 09:05:51

The thing that Padma found looked to me like an invoice with David Clarkes name on and a red stamp "paid" on it. Not sure that that helps and why would it be framed?

diddl Tue 29-Jan-13 09:16:33

I think that Padma is a baddie.

Anyone for Emily & Aiden rather than Emily & Jack?

Or even ab Ems/Nolan combo?

amazingmumof6 Tue 29-Jan-13 12:52:30

ok I checked. it's 2 bits of paper, the top one has a Grayson Global logo and David Clarke's signature with "To the future"

the bottom one is the check of $50 thou that David gave to Nolan to start up his business Nolancorp (dated 4/17/1993)
massive red stamp on it "PAID"

HUH?

how would that check end up at his Dad's? it should be in the bank if cashed in, shouldn't it?

or did Nolan's dad actually somehow pay that money back - so it was really him who helped Nolan with his business?

or is it a pay off for something else?

maybe David Clarke really was a terrorist and Nolan is the head of the"Initiative"?

WTF is going on?

(my head hurts. and tonight Dallas is back on with another dose of twists and deceit..)

diddl Tue 29-Jan-13 13:24:26

Am I one Ep ahead as I think I know why the cheque is important.

CointreauVersial Tue 29-Jan-13 13:34:13

Noooo diddl, shhhh....don't tell us!

<la la la, fingers in ears>

amazingmumof6 Tue 29-Jan-13 14:41:35

how do you know that? are you from the future? what channel are you watching? Are you Emily????

don't say please!

diddl Tue 29-Jan-13 14:48:30

I only said "think"!

Won´t say, don´t worry.

Have been watching online & think I have watched more eps than I meant to!

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 29-Jan-13 16:36:00

think diddl you think you have seen further then us

we have just seen the one where amanda fell off graysons balcony and her baby son was born

<squint eyes and glares> you have seen MORE then us?? grin

such an exciting episode

so kara is a bad mummy and tried to kill her her daughter

padma, prob a goodie but may be a baddie

aiden - bloody wrists also dissapeered and ouch at tazar - told you they married (white haired man and mum)

maybe nolans dad kept the cheq as proud of him ........

MilkshakeMaker Tue 29-Jan-13 17:37:29

How did David Clark have that much money to give to Nolan anyway hmm?

I wish it were 2 a week, by the time next week comes I'll have forgotten all my suspicions and start from scratch again...

diddl Tue 29-Jan-13 17:41:51

whatkungfuthat Wed 30-Jan-13 08:00:42

diddl if one wanted to watch such a thing where could it be found? I'm only asking for a friend, just hypothetically <whistles>

diddl Wed 30-Jan-13 08:04:37

Hypothetically speaking, there is a site called Movie2k.

amazingmumof6 Wed 30-Jan-13 08:05:30

whatkungfuthat - don't you dare going there!!!!

diddl please don't say, if you do I'll be tempted to watch it too....I don't what to ruin Monday nights!!!

please!!!

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 30-Jan-13 08:08:17

Girls DON'T look on that site

Blondes forbids you !!!

diddl Wed 30-Jan-13 08:20:57

The only reason I watch atm is because I record Lewis on a Monday.

I think I´ve watched as many as I need to now & will stop so that I can keep discussing on here!

MurielTheActor Wed 30-Jan-13 10:57:36

I'm a few episodes ahead (don't ask but something to do with N*****x)
Not going to spoil anything for anyone but the only reason I'm staying with it to the end is because of Nolan. I DO worry about him wink

amazingmumof6 Wed 30-Jan-13 11:19:25

I'm with Blondes it is now forbidden!

or else I'll have to take revenge on you naughty ones - MWAHAHAHA

(Blondes, shall we swap identities and trick them all? grin )

You lot!! I look at this thread once a week and your detective-work is almost as entertaining as the programme itself!

I am worried about Nolan too Muriel. He is still my favourite character in all of this and the only one who seems honourable and human IFYKWIM.

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 30-Jan-13 16:23:15

No excuse diddl you can record and watch on e4+1 at 10pm

kung hope you are ashamed of yourself !!!

whatkungfuthat Wed 30-Jan-13 16:40:13

It´s my excuse & I´m sticking to it!!grin

<ponders watching ep7>

amazingmumof6 Wed 30-Jan-13 17:19:42

Nolan is my favourite too!
if I wasn't married I'd become his groupie grin

BookFairy Wed 30-Jan-13 19:07:57

Oooo excellent detective work!

So the body in the water could be Kara? I think that makes sense, plus it means that Nolan and Jack are still available for gazing at grin

whatkungfuthat Wed 30-Jan-13 19:47:21

Is that site safe? <DP out watching footie>

amazingmumof6 Wed 30-Jan-13 20:09:31

whatkungfuthat no its not a safe site, it could give you nightmares of me chasing you - get off it, now! I
'm not even joking, I'll lock you in a room with Kara!

diddl Wed 30-Jan-13 20:14:53

Nolan is my fave as well.

I thought that the wedding ring looks more like a man´s ring.

whatkungfuthat Wed 30-Jan-13 21:35:31

Oh very well then, I will be good <sticks out bottom lip>

I am loving Nolan more each week but I can't abide Daniel

amazingmumof6 Wed 30-Jan-13 21:44:41

actually I watched episode 1 and 2 again for more clues yesterday and Emily has a ring on that finger too, but she has long nails and I don't think it's her anyway.#

just saying this to point out that it might not be a wedding ring as such, but a plain ring....

whatkungfuthat don't sulk little one, you can come out your bedroom, mummy loves you! grin

whatkungfuthat Wed 30-Jan-13 21:48:39

grin

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 30-Jan-13 22:10:02

I'm deeply disappointed in you !!!

amazingmumof6 Thu 31-Jan-13 19:35:27

I wonder where CSI tribpot is......

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 01-Feb-13 00:19:10

Couple of weeks?? You have been a very bad diddl !!!!

No lusting after jack for you !!!

diddl Fri 01-Feb-13 06:36:55

Oh no, Jack doesn´t do it for me at all.

Nolan for me-& Aiden!!

bleedingheart Fri 01-Feb-13 07:08:33

I don't trust Padma and I find Emily's attitude towards Fauxmanda uncomfortable, after all she didn't have a great life before they met and she seems to see her as disposable.

Intrigued to see why that bloke wants the bar so much that he staged a burglary etc.

Kara could have been brainwashed. Grey haired man knew who Emily was as when they had their set to he said she fought like her mother.

Oblomov Fri 01-Feb-13 07:14:48

I don't trust Padma at all.
Mind you, is there anyone we trust?

I said as soon as Padma came into Nolan's life that I didn't trust her. I am suspicious of everyone now, bar Nolan and fake Amanda. I am also jealous of Padma kissing Nolan. envy

whatkungfuthat Fri 01-Feb-13 08:03:51

Jack always looks constipated to me, although I like the character. Emily is really quite cold about everyone isn't she? She is never very nice to Nolan and see's pretendy Amanda as a tool at her disposal. I don't like Padma at all, lucky caah for kissing Nolan <cats bum face>

amazingmumof6 Fri 01-Feb-13 08:37:03

I wonder why white haired man never told Vic or Conrad the real identity of Emily.

I mean he was discussing it with Victoria in the hut in the woods, she said that Emily was a liability. weird eh?

of all the secrets kept, I don't know why he didn't share this. just illogical.

grin at constipated Jack!

Oblomov Fri 01-Feb-13 09:46:53

I agree with Amazing. I just don't get why white-haired-man never told Victoria about Emily being the real Amanda.

MurielTheActor Fri 01-Feb-13 10:04:42

How about a Nolan T shirt saying 'Done anything Revenge-y today?'
DD and I now call it 'Revenge-y' grin
Or at the very least a Nolan fan club?

How awful would it be if he turned out to be the mastermind behind EVERYTHING? I might stop watching tv forever if that happened.
<in dramatic mood today>

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 01-Feb-13 10:15:10

i wondered why white haired man didnt reveal emily identity

nolan is rather cute now has a hair cut

amazingmumof6 Fri 01-Feb-13 10:28:45

Muriel grin grin

should really do that t-shirt, with his cheeky grinning face on the back! when he said that we snorted, it was a great line!

or just call it "NOLCORPS" - like a secret gang symbol

(weirdly enough Gabriel Mann looks like an ex, who wanted to marry me but I dumped him, was too controlling . and the ex now has a boy called Gabriel - huh?)

I thought that about being a mastermind too! I really did!
what with the diaries and the money and her aunt worked at GG - a very chilling possibility!shock

MurielTheActor Fri 01-Feb-13 10:50:34

The more I think about it the more it seems likely that Emily is behind it all. She controls The Initiative (ugh HATE The Initiative thing)
I know I'm a few eps ahead and promise I won't do any spoilers but Emily is more and more unlikeable and unscrupulous as the series goes on.
Very clever how she's drawn us into her way of seeing things as being 'right' or at the very least acceptable hmm
I no longer cheer for Emily.
That's all I'm saying...

Muriel I'll be in your Nolan fan club!

amazingmumof6 Fri 01-Feb-13 14:06:54

could Takeda be the head of "the Initiative" ? he looks evil..

diddl Fri 01-Feb-13 14:32:59

What has Takeda got to do with anything?

Why is he helping Emily get revenge?

Ems is losing the plot, I think.

Er hello-Nolan!!

whatkungfuthat Fri 01-Feb-13 14:39:35

Wasn't there an Initiative in Buffy as well? confused

tribpot Sat 02-Feb-13 14:30:28

I feel terrible - I've been delayed in watching Revenge this week and so I've been ignoring this thread when it was coming up in Threads I'm On.

Now I see that I was being summoned for further screenshot duty.

We seem to have covered what the framed pic was that Padma uncovered (her reaction suggests that she is either a baddy or such a goody-two-shoes that she now thinks Nolan's company was started with the proceeds of terrorism and thus she's gonna shop him to the FBI).

We want a picture of the hand and wedding ring of the dodgy bloke who's involved with the burglary / fake inspection of the bar?

There was an Initiative in Buffy too, whatkungfuthat.

Loved Amanda-Emily's fall off the balcony. That could really have happened. NOT.

amazingmumof6 Sat 02-Feb-13 18:16:55

oh tribpot I'm relieved you are back!smile

tribpot Sun 03-Feb-13 13:40:08

Well it's good to be back, amazingmumof6. I had the unusual experience of discovering that I not only know an actual person in real life who also watches Revenge but it's the guy who sits next to me at work shock shock. I thought it was a rule that all Revenge fans had to live in isolation of one another! Anyway, fortunately he is miles ahead of us E4 watchers, using similar techniques to those mentioned above but we do not speak of them. Otherwise we'd be forced to talk about Amanda-Emily and Emily-Amanda etc in front of our colleagues, who would be duly horrified smile

CointreauVersial Sun 03-Feb-13 14:20:09

The superfan in this household is actually DH - he gets very excited on a Monday!

He does work in a department full of women, so it's the hot topic on a Tuesday morning.

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 03-Feb-13 19:00:25

indeed, we do not speak of that site !!! grin

its on tomorrow-yipee

amazingmumof6 Sun 03-Feb-13 20:41:25

if you know the answer, please shush, but if you don't - who thinks Fauxmanda is going to die in tomorrow's episode?

I know she has internal bleeding and is in a coma, but that could be easily cured by Lemsip, lots of fluids and putting your feet up - no?

tribpot Sun 03-Feb-13 20:49:42

No way - if Amanda-Emily was gonna die, she would have done so in that spectacularly realistic fall off the balcony (amazingly, that railing disappeared in the manner of a Hogwarts staircase when she got too close to it! And then re-formed afterwards so it looked like something no-one could possibly fall over simply by grabbing a cheque a bit enthusiastically, even in ludicrous heels a pregnant woman wouldn't wear).

Much better to keep her alive in a coma for a few weeks, whilst the lovely JJL reveals that she, too, is suffering from the strange neurological condition preventing people from realising which one of the two actually is Amanda (it is known as Jack's Disease).

Drama-comas last for any amount of time which is deemed convenient for the plot, and then are instantly cured so that the coma victim can spring back to life at an inopportune moment. Perhaps with a convenient, yet partial, loss of memory? So perhaps she will wake thinking she really is Amanda?

amazingmumof6 Sun 03-Feb-13 21:11:03

like the smell of amnesia in the air! good call, tribpot!

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 03-Feb-13 22:52:05

Hmmm can't kill her off - yet

So a coma sounds good smile

And yes those shoes / who the hell wears that High when preg

Oblomov Mon 04-Feb-13 20:33:28

Even I, who have the prediction skills of a gnat, saw Amanda falling from the balcony, losing the cheque, in those ridiculously high heels. I thought Amandas chq was going to be used by Jack, but no that now seems silly, because they slimey FALSE robbery bloke wouldn't be able to buy bar. Just as I show a glimmer of hope re my detective skills, my second one proves i am indeed useless at this guessing malarkey smile

amazingmumof6 Mon 04-Feb-13 20:54:04

5 minutes to go, buckle up people for the next crazy ride! grin

Oblomov Mon 04-Feb-13 21:59:26

Ooooih I do love a bit of mason Treadwell.

Oblomov Mon 04-Feb-13 22:02:02

Why would widen tell Daniel about Clarke . I don't get what he is hoping to achieve. Isn't he supposed to be trying to win Amanda over because he loves her so much?

BookFairy Mon 04-Feb-13 23:04:55

I think Aiden did that to try to derail Grayson Global.... Or did he?

amazingmumof6 Tue 05-Feb-13 00:51:48

"she'll probably try and kill Fauxmanda...or I bet she'll look for but won't find a childhood scar, so she'll figure out it's not real Amanda!!!!"

didn't I call that? though with the wrong person....but still!

DH was massively impressed at that foresight.

<feels smug and does victory dance>

Why is Emily suddenly so nice? and yes Oblomov what is Aiden stirring the s**t for? why cause problems for Ems and Nolan?

Bookfairy - derail how? you mean trick them into thinking they owe Nolcorp but then smash their head in with the reality that NOlan is king of Hamptons?

The two psycho women living together a stone's throw away from baby Carl is sending shivers down my spine!

I wonder if the whole Kara-pricking-herself-with-the-rose-and-washing-off-blood-in-sink scene is a little hint that someone in the future might get a hold of bloody tissue to use in DNA comparison?

my head hurts. I want breakfast on beach.

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 05-Feb-13 12:53:53

Hmmm the plot thickens

Personally if I were jack I would have for a 2nd and 3rd opinion for the supposed dry rot and reliesed that it wouldn't have cost thousands to fix

Who accepts the first quote/opinion?

We are only 5/22 so have another 17 episodes - that's 4mths of revenge and deceit smile

And yes breakie on the beach sounds lovely

'Blondes swoons'

CointreauVersial Tue 05-Feb-13 12:58:54

I can't work our why Aiden appears to be trying to shaft lovely Nolan. And whose side Padma is on.

Amazingmum - I also thought the rose finger-pricking was a bit superfluous to the storyline, so you may be onto something (but what??)

And why did mean burglary guy suddenly come over all nice, so Jack and Declan could get the bar open again? Surely he wants them to go bust?

17 more episodes?? <faints>

tribpot Tue 05-Feb-13 13:07:43

If Emily-Amanda has a distinguishing scar, you would have thought she'd have mentioned it to Amanda-Emily as part of the cover story!

Why is Mason Treadwell the only person not infected with Jack's Disease? Has he been off being vaccinated somewhere?!

It comes across as if Emily and Aiden are out to undermine Nolan - but is it just Aiden acting out of jealousy? Is Takeda using Emily to get to Nolan? WTF is going on?!

Very disappointed my amnesia story has not been used. There's no point putting a character into a coma only to have them wake up half way through the next episode.

CointreauVersial Tue 05-Feb-13 13:20:24

Yes, she was very bright and perky when she woke up, wasn't she? No after-effects, no lengthy rehabilitation......hmm

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 05-Feb-13 14:42:48

and no concussion, broken limbs/ribs etc

whatkungfuthat Tue 05-Feb-13 15:37:06

I'm totally confused. It's taking the Graysons and Cara a while to realise that WHM is dead isn't it? Padma is trouble. Emily burned her back in a foster home so her mother wouldn't know about it.

BookFairy Tue 05-Feb-13 16:11:27

Good point whatkung about the burn happening at a foster home, but how did Mason know about it?!

Aiden keeps telling Emily-Amanda not to forget her mission to destroy those who framed and killed her father. I don't think he would do something that would just harm Nolan. There must somehow be major repercussions for the Graysons... somehow...

I thought the rose pricking was supposed to be quite sinister and unnerve Victoria - blood etc.

Padma - is she possibly just sorting out Nolan's finances without knowing what she has uncovered? Or is she actually connected to the illusive Initiative.

Yes I agree that everyone is taking a suspiciously long time to realise that White Haired Man is dead. They haven't even entertained the idea!

Do you think Fauxmanda might start bonding with Cara? Then Cara might try to steal the baby...

amazingmumof6 Tue 05-Feb-13 17:53:57

tribpot Jack's disease? sorry, what does that mean?

amazingmumof6 Tue 05-Feb-13 18:03:13

Mason wrote a book about David Clarke, so maybe he had access to Amanda's health records as part of the research?

tribpot Tue 05-Feb-13 18:50:03

amazingmum - Jack's Disease is the inability of those who love her to recognise the real Amanda.

Surely in the real world (!) Mason would not have access to a child's medical records for a book, although I'm quite prepared to believe that in Revengeworld he would!

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 05-Feb-13 18:58:21

What did Emily do with whm after Aiden killed him?

Could he be the dead body in boat or could that be the one who wants jacks bar?

Think how first episode in s1 and we all thought Victorias son was dead and turned out he wasn't mid series

So maybe we will find out 12/13 about the sunken boat and who it is

amazingmumof6 Tue 05-Feb-13 20:12:20

blondes I don't think Gordon's body is hidden on the boat coz it would stink by now - remember jack slept there a few nights

plus a pregnant woman's nose beats a bloodhound - she would have detected it from a mile!

tribpot thanks for explanation.

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 05-Feb-13 22:02:03

Good point

So where is whm buried?

BookFairy Tue 05-Feb-13 22:16:59

Didn't Emily-Amanda and Aidan bury him a few episodes back....?

Or did I just make that up?!

diddl Wed 06-Feb-13 07:00:18

I thought that as well, Book-sure I remember Emily dressed in black with a spade...

tribpot Wed 06-Feb-13 09:49:40

I feel a screenshot moment coming on - I don't remember the WHM being buried either smile

diddl Wed 06-Feb-13 13:51:10

OK, other than Emily helping Jack to bury Sammy, does anyone remember any other digging by Emily?

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 06-Feb-13 14:45:57

i thought that was when they buried the dog?

Oblomov Wed 06-Feb-13 18:03:25

Emily and Aiden were arguing over whm. Then she hit Aiden on the head with a bottle and when he woke up, he was in the garbage shredder thing.
I don't remember any reference to Emily disposing of the body. You say she was digging? Her and Aiden were digging? when was this?

BookFairy Wed 06-Feb-13 18:19:06

I thought I remembered Emily and Aidan digging and wrapping WHM in a rug... Gaaaah I don't know anymore! I may resort to consulting Wikipedia!

amazingmumof6 Wed 06-Feb-13 21:45:35

csi tribpot where's the screenshot?

screenshot, screenshot! <she chants>

don't even try to come up with feeble excuses like you are busy with your kids or work or anything "important"

there's nothing else more important that your fabulous detective work - so do your thing, your audience is waiting! grin

please!

BookFairy Wed 06-Feb-13 22:06:25

diddl I'm doubting myself! Why do I remember Ems and Aiden burying WHM if it didn't happen?!

tribpot Wed 06-Feb-13 23:27:42

I have been reading back through synopses to see if I can work out which episode this alleged burial might have taken place in (which is not bad going given WHM hasn't been dead that long). No clue. smile

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 07-Feb-13 07:00:46

I can't see how or when Aiden and Emily could have buried whm as Aiden killed him and then Emily bashes Aiden over the head and he wakes up in a dustbin and escapes being mashed by the lorry

So where is whm. Is he really dead .......

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 07-Feb-13 07:03:20

Plus we have seen Emily's back many times in strapless dresses and no sign of a scar ......

BookFairy Fri 08-Feb-13 09:16:58

Blondes clearly they do not expect Revenge viewers to be so thorough. Clearly it is another random plot twist!

CointreauVersial Fri 08-Feb-13 15:54:54

Ooo Blondes, you're good at this.........grin

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 08-Feb-13 16:48:25

I try my best rofl smile

.

BookFairy Mon 11-Feb-13 21:14:51

I knew the WHM was dead! Phew. I'm back on track now grin

tribpot Mon 11-Feb-13 21:15:28

There has been no burial .. yet grin

BookFairy Mon 11-Feb-13 21:49:15

Ah yes. No digging.... We'll move on from that and focus on the fact that he is definitely dead!

BookFairy Mon 11-Feb-13 22:00:28

Mason has figured it out shock

How long until he turns up dead? Half an episode?!

tribpot Mon 11-Feb-13 22:01:54

Oh I missed the very end! My internet signal kept carking it. So Emily-Amanda's staging of Conrad-as-murderer was a bit circumstantial, what happened with Mason?

LadyInPink Tue 12-Feb-13 11:55:05

sad as soon as jack proposed to fauxamanda I remembered that the guy in the check shirt drowned in the boat in first episode could potentially be Jack now as the dead man wore a ring (as it def can't be WHM)

Will Mason guess that Emily and Amanda swapped identities? It's so ludicrous that he may not, even if he knows they served time together - doesn't mean anything as they are friends who don't hide knowing each other.

How did Emily portray how WHM died? It showed her putting a spoon in a bowl (poison?) but how do you hide a bullet shot? And if he was shot while sitting in his chair why wasn't he slumped over?

It's getting more ridiculous by the episode but stupidly I'm compelled to watch til the end (like i did with Lost)

LadyInPink Tue 12-Feb-13 11:57:54

tripot - Mason just happened to hear from Victoria that Emily was a Juvi girl and his eyes lit up, later (at the end) you see him with a board of photo's linking the pictues together with string - he links emily and amanda together and it ends with his knowing smile like he's figured it out - Mwaa mwaa.

diddl Tue 12-Feb-13 12:40:53

Hello again!

You´ve all caught me up, so I can join in again!grin

Framing Conrad for murder of WHM-inspired!

Surely that´ll send Kara over the edge!

What will Treadwell´s fate be??!!

tribpot Tue 12-Feb-13 12:42:17

Oh, was that MASON with the red string? I thought that was Emily-Amanda!

LadyInPink Tue 12-Feb-13 13:20:35

Yes, yes it was so you didn't miss anything really except to know it was Mason linking the red wool to the different pic's once they zoomed out.

CointreauVersial Tue 12-Feb-13 16:54:22

What is Kara after? I can't even work out whose side she's on.

BookFairy Tue 12-Feb-13 18:34:26

I think Kara is on her own side...

diddl I agree! It seems like Kara is dangling on the edge of losing it so I doubt it will take much more to tip her over completely!

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 13-Feb-13 16:51:36

Knew whm wasn't buried grin

Handy freezer storage place

I was a bit puzzled over Amanda placing dbnbwhm (dead but not buried white haired man lol) in his trailer???

Surely that's not where he lived with Amanda's mum - so why would his mobile address show there?

Police coroner will suss out that whm was frozen as organs will look funny at autopsy and blood tissue will be weird

Did you see the pic of Amanda's scar on back? Huge scar. Would be major plastic surgery to remove / neaten that

How did Amanda sneak into the graysons bedroom and get cuff link - with no one seeing her??

Nolan is looking so tasty !!!!!

'Blondes drools'

He will def end up with Amanda

amazingmumof6 Fri 15-Feb-13 19:37:19

I knew Jack would propose to Fauxmanda, and I'm not predicting his future will be bright...

diddl - so glad you are back in the present with us! grin

(don't you dare running ahead again.... x )

What I want to know is what's going to happen to the David Clarke's Cheque/Nolcorp Share etc line? Is that still a problem or Aiden (or Nolan?) somehow diverting attention from the subject?

Blonde - agree about the frozen tissue, I thought that too! (did you watch CSI episode about parachuter who died in high altitude, froze, fell out of harness etc?)
But as this is fiction the coroner will agree to whatever cause of death Emily has staged grin

Kara freaks me out, I want her away from that baby! She's crazy nuts.
It might be just that it's the same actress who played the psycho killer in "Single white female" (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and maybe it's just type casting, but 20 years on she still gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Oblomov Fri 15-Feb-13 20:36:00

When Emily said that she was leading Mason into the next thing, she made it seem that he was going to let the fake Amanda - scar thing go, because the thing she was giving him - the graysons, was so huge. But now he's realised emily/ Amanda, he will go fir the graysons, victorias kidnap fake AND amanda/ Emily, surely?

northender Mon 18-Feb-13 22:01:46

Bloody hell. where to start after that episode??!!

BookFairy Mon 18-Feb-13 22:10:29

"This one time at Revenge Camp..." grin
Great twist in the tale re. Mason. I'm a bit hazy about how Aidan and Emily persuaded Kara to leave. But has she left for good?

I'm intrigued by the new co-owner of the bar and his brother. I presume they will be taking a more prominant role soon?

The incomprehensible Initiative are starting to enter stage left. I'm a bit confused by who/what they are...

MrsReiver Mon 18-Feb-13 22:11:14

She's done a great job on poor old Mason.

Do you think she'll stick to her side of the deal? DH doesn't thinks so for a minute but I'm inclined to give her the benefit of the doubt. For now.

northender Mon 18-Feb-13 22:12:27

I think I enjoyed that but as usual I'm no clearer as to whats going on grin.

MrsReiver Mon 18-Feb-13 22:13:48

No wonder Mason needed his board to keep track Northern grin

CointreauVersial Mon 18-Feb-13 22:14:43

I have no idea what Emily is after now. I can't believe she told Mason the truth.

BookFairy Tue 19-Feb-13 09:34:14

Do you think she plans to have him killed in prison?

Oblomov Tue 19-Feb-13 11:24:19

I too can't work out what Emily is trying to achieve.
So she gets Mason to agree to write a new book. Whilst he's in prsion? and she says she will release him, when the time is right= empty promise. And she panders to his ego, saying you must write the book that Mason Treadwell was supposed to write = his reason for living = bleurgh.

But, but , but.....

Cara? The doggy bar owner, and the initiative was behind it all , how are the initiative and the graysons going to be exposed?
And what is the point of Aiden? How did he hurt Emily? Surely not just that one time when he jumped over the hedge and cheated in the trial? I don't get it.
As per ususal, I don't get anything at all.

Oh my god that was a lot to take in! So real-Amanda and Aiden are back on. Kara is bound to turn up again at some point, can't see her just disappearing. Nolan is lovely as ever. I can't see Jack and Amanda getting their happy ending. Conrad still loves Victoria, they will become close again. The Initiative, still don't know what that's all about. My head hurt slightly after this episode, but in a good way. Did I mention that Nolan is lovely? especially in that pale blue suit

diddl Tue 19-Feb-13 13:37:04

When Jack & Amanda get married-who´s going to be on the lookout for the rings??!!

Lessthanaballpark Tue 19-Feb-13 17:25:34

Ok this is how I see it:

Emily's plan is getting more ambitious as she plans to go after the big guns, ie.. the Initiative as they are the real meanies and Vic & Con are but pawns in their game. The mother bit was just a mushy diversion serving to keep us sympathising with her and her troubled past.

With the help of Aiden she wants to put Daniel in Conrad's place at the head of Grayson, cos he will be way easier to manipulate, possibly Emily will make a play for him at this point so she can get even closer. This will enable her to weed the Initiative out so that she can exact her final awesome revenge.

If she gets back with Daniel it will also oust Ashley and piss her off big time, then we will see her mean side. Yea!

Nolan had to give up the evidence of DC's investment in Nolcorp in order to stop them snooping further into his company's finances and discover the connection between NolCorp, DC and the origin of Emily's fortune and thus part in the whole deviousness.

Although I'm a bit hazy about that last bit. Actually I'm a bit hazy on any scene that Aiden's cos it's kind of hard to concentrate .. blush

grin lessthanaballpark

diddl Tue 19-Feb-13 17:43:59

What have these (Ryan?) brothers got to do with anything.

Either of them married??

There is some history with the bar and/or Jack's Father I think, although what that is I have no idea

Lessthanaballpark Tue 19-Feb-13 19:15:31

I think Diddl that they are just small time crooks but their plan to overtake the bar will go wonky when the blondish gets attached to Jack and sees what a stand up guy he is.

I've not sure how they fit into the bigger picture though except possibly through Charlotte who might use her money to bail Declan out.

Who thinks that Conrad will shoot himself due to the stress and guilt of it all?

diddl Tue 19-Feb-13 19:55:49

What do they want the bar for?

Was it something to do with a cheap alcohol scam?

Front for drugs??
(gets carried away)

BookFairy Tue 19-Feb-13 21:12:16

Money laundering?

I think the bar situation is a side story to the Initiative/revenge. The bar situation may cause Emily-Amanda to reassess her feelings for Jack/or somehow put Fauxmanda in danger.

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 19-Feb-13 21:22:30

wow what an episode!

so much went on- cant beleive emily told mason everything shock

didnt understand the adien and kara thing - why let her go, will she return?

amandas baby looks very healthy and big for a prem that was in intensive care ........

Lessthanaballpark Tue 19-Feb-13 22:19:02

Sometimes I think I prefer Fauxmanda to RealAmanda. Her and Jack are really sweet together and she's just a juvvy kid trying to find love and a family. Murder aside obviously grin

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 19-Feb-13 22:36:32

it was more self defence smile

diddl Wed 20-Feb-13 07:08:24

Yeah-I´m warming to Fauxmanda now.

Emily´s getting annoying.

I mean what Mason Treadwell did was awful-agreeing to write sympathetically & then not.

But the most damage to DC had already been done by the Initiative/the Graysons.

So I think prison indefinitely for him is way OTT.

MurielTheActor Wed 20-Feb-13 09:48:17

Right up to date but season finale not aired in US till March 10th.
<<really? No sobbing smiley?>>
I know, I know, I should have listened to you lot then I could have watched it every week. But I was greedy.
Still love Nolan grin

BookFairy Wed 20-Feb-13 22:59:04

Nah Mason won't be there indefinitely. I'm sure Emily has other plans for him.

Why do that to yourself Muriel?! I'd forget what had happened if I had to wait that long grin

Megglevache Fri 22-Feb-13 11:26:45

where's the UK airing of revenge up to now?

diddl Fri 22-Feb-13 12:16:26

Think it was Ep7 on Monday.

Where Mason Treadwell "confesses" to the murder of Gordon Murray(?)

Kara leaves & Nolan hands over the proof of David Clarke´s investment in his company.

Megglevache Fri 22-Feb-13 12:18:15

oh yes, have seen up to 10 or 11 I think.

tribpot Sat 23-Feb-13 15:28:23

The random bar brothers seem to be after the moorings that come with the bar (as, er, is so often the case) - they talked about the long term leases and how they were made to be broken. So perhaps the idea is to get the moorings back and then use them to land drugs. Although surely you could just do that by using them whenever they weren't occupied, sigh. There's definitely some history with the dad, though.

So Kara's just learnt that her husband is the Big Bad and responsible for the death of her previous husband - but is just supposed to drive off and remember to take her pills from now on?

Why is Padma back? I thought Nolan had sacked her off.

So Mason really hadn't figured out that Emily was Amanda and vice versa? Even after the dismal 'where is that scar on my back?' performance?

Confused? Tune in next time ... wink

BookFairy Mon 25-Feb-13 22:06:24

Ooooo. The back story is clearer now. Aiden looked even more dishy than usual wink

DevlinMaccabee Mon 25-Feb-13 22:34:53

Great episode! I almost liked Victoria in this one, no wonder she is messed up!

CointreauVersial Mon 25-Feb-13 23:34:39

Bah! Not satisfied with this week's installment.

All back-story, no progress.

Explains why Victoria's such a mean and twisted individual, though.

northender Tue 26-Feb-13 08:22:51

At least I could follow that episode grin. Nolan is going to be hurt isn't he? Noooooo sad sad

I enjoyed it! I liked seeing Victoria's relationship with her Mother, explains so much, and she deserved what she got. I had wondered about Aiden's story too so that bit about his sister explained all that. I like Aiden, but....

.....poor Nolan though. He needs protecting. sad. Still my fav.

tribpot Wed 27-Feb-13 07:45:30

I thought it was a good way of introducing Nolan's last lover-slash-CFO disaster, some of Victoria's backstory. Doesn't make Daniel any more interesting - were his poems written in crayon?!

tribpot grin at where the poems written in crayon!

*were, not where, sorry!

tribpot Wed 27-Feb-13 12:26:09

Bless him, I do feel sorry for the actor. He gets literally nothing of substance to do, just floats about looking pretty. He's like the princess in a fairy tale.

DevlinMaccabee Wed 27-Feb-13 12:36:41

grin There's not much point to him really is there?

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 27-Feb-13 12:38:18

what a waste of an episode sad

dont like flashes in past

tribpot Wed 27-Feb-13 16:57:48

Thing is it kind of needed it - Aidan's mysterious appearance needed to be explained, the whole Takeda backstory is never going to make sense told in the present day (or past, on current showing - although all hail Nolan for 'this one time, at Revenge camp'). Plus, Revenge is so much about the past anyway. Why does Aidan have a random connection to the downed jetliner?

DevlinMaccabee Wed 27-Feb-13 22:26:50

Did Aiden's Dad have something to do with the flight? I can't remember what was said exactly?

tribpot Wed 27-Feb-13 23:04:13

He was a baggage handler at Heathrow, I think Emily-Amanda said he was 'as implicated' in the plot as her own dad was.
