Today marked the last week of any of my shows, the Revenge finale aired and I watched the Scandal finale from last week. From here on out, it will be getting caught up on shows that I’m super duper behind on! If I’m lucky, I might be able to get my TiVo to below 80% full by the end of the month, lol.
Hold on to your hats kids, cuz this one was CRAZY!!!
A couple of episodes back, Emily found out that her father was actually murdered by a dude they are calling the White Haired Man, and that this was orchestrated by Conrad Greyson. She’s been working towards exacting revenge on this guy, but Nolan gets captured in the process and Emily offers herself in his place. It ultimately works out that Nolan gets free, and Emily is in a position to killed the WHM. However, she has this flash back to her father saying how much he loved how she loved everyone and everything, so she doesn’t kill the dude.
When she gets home, Daniel confronts her about the kiss she had with Jack towards the end of the last episode, which he found out about from Ashley who was spying on Emily. They split up, with Emily saying neither of them is what the other thought they were. She plans to tell Jack the truth about everything, cuz she thinks things are close to being done. However, if you ever watch this show, you know that the shit is just about to get crazier!
Charlotte does some other weird stuff to try and get Declan back, but ends up alienating him further and this doesn’t go well for her during the rest of the episode. She ultimately regrets what she’s done, which was to expose a girl for having a relationship with a teacher at her last school. It was mean of Charlotte, especially cuz the girl and Declan weren’t even interested in each other. Silly kids!
Emily goes to tell Jack the truth and Amanda is there…pregnant with (presumably) Jack’s baby. It kind of ruins everything for Emily and she leaves really upset. Meanwhile, they are setting the show up for Daniel and Ashley to have a relationship next season, which I’m not entirely in favor of. I like Daniel with Emily, especially since she may not be with Jack after all. Although Jack seems to be having second thoughts about Amanda anyway.
The WHM blows up another plane, this one with Victoria and Lydia on it. They say at the end of the show that everyone on board has died, but Victoria has as many lives as a cat and I wouldn’t be surprised if she survives this one. Charlotte is really upset by it though, and takes a ton of pills, and we’re left to assume she is dying when Conrad finds her. He also seems to be responsible for the blowing up of the plane, in a round about way.
The very end of the episode leaves us with Nolan informing Emily that her mother isn’t actually dead after all. I guessed a few episodes ago that this was the case, they’ve been hinting at stuff having to do with her mother and I started wondering about it. I’m curious to find out who this mother is, because she seems to be involved somehow in the conspiracy and Emily is probably going to go looking for her.
Needless to say, I’m kind of anxious for the premiere of season 2 in the fall…how are we going to wait that long!!!
At the end of the last episode, Gideon was stabbed in the neck by the VP’s chief of staff, Billy. Unfortunately, Quinn does this really stupid thing, the thing you are taught to not do, which is taking the weapon out of the wound. Had she not done that, I think Gideon would have had a chance. But this is a lesson to everyone again – leave the knife, or scissors, in the wound!
Quinn calls Olivia because she doesn’t know what to do. Olivia brings the team to clean up the mess, because the police can’t be involved without everyone finding out who Quinn really is. There are a lot of hints in this episode, like that she is an invented person, which we already knew. Sadly, we don’t actually find out her true identity, but she’ll probably end up being in witness protection or something. Since Scandal has been renewed for a second season (hopefully a full season this time around), we’ll undoubtedly learn more about that. Maybe her identity will end up being one of the scandals in the next season.
There’s a big worry that the President is going to resign because Billy releases a bunch of information about his affairs, but Olivia helps resolve that by getting Mellie to come back into the relationship and say she’s pregnant, blah blah. Things get resolved, and everything is back on track.
The biggest bomb of the episode is learning that Cyrus was actually responsible for Amanda’s death! We don’t know at this point if he was working with Billy on it, or if he just needed Amanda to go away because she was going to screw up the Presidency. However, we do know that the talked Olivia out of having a life with the President, got her to put things back together, so it’s quite possible he will do whatever it takes to keep himself in the white house.
All in all, I can’t wait for next season!
