Revenge Round Table: "Scandal"
With no new episode until April, Revenge left fans with plenty to ponder last Wednesday night, specifically the identity of Tyler's killer.
Are TV Fanatic staff writers Christine Orlando, Leigh Raines and Dan Forcella satisfied with the reveal of the beach murderer? That's just one topic they debate in the following edition of the Revenge Round Table. Gather around and join in now...
What was your favorite moment from the episode?
Christine: Definitely Nolan calling Amanda the "homicidal stripper version of whack-a-mole." It was hysterical and accurate. Just when you think you've gotten rid of her she pops right back up.
Leigh: I was happy to finally see what happened on the beach. We all had our predictions and finally got that flashback.
Dan: Yup, stripper whack-a-mole it is! Way to lighten the mood, Nolan.
What are your thoughts on Ashley leaking the photographs so that she could step into the spotlight?
Christine: Ashley's out for Ashley. She'll do anything and step over anyone to get what she wants, so posting a few pictures for her own greater good was no big deal. I'm more interested in seeing what Nolan does with this information.
Leigh: Not at all surprised. She wanted to put in the hard work as an assistant and get her feet wet event planning. However, it wasn't what she thought it would be and being somebody's bitch gets real old real fast.
Dan: I was definitely more surprised than you two. I understand that she has been out for herself this entire time, but she seemed much more unassuming to me. I always found her a bit too innocent to attempt something like this.
How would you have gotten rid of that bloody hoodie?
Christine: Burn the damn thing and dump the ashes in the ocean. It's the one thing that could easily link Jack back to this mess and he and Declan can't seem to figure out they need to get rid of it. The Porter boys aren't the brightest.
Leigh: Definitely burned it. Why is Jack holding onto it? I just want to scream at him. HELLO!!!
Dan: He is so dumb. Has he never watched TV before? This is definitely going to come back to haunt him. I would have bleached it, cut it into pieces, then burned it and finally dumped the ashes into the air from a plane.
Why did Takeda kill Tyler and frame Daniel?
Christine: He killed Tyler because he was going to out Emily's plan and Daniel had already shot him. Takeda holds no loyalty to Daniel. He thinks Emily marrying him is a bad idea and seeing the Grayson's beloved son sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit has a nice symmetry to it, don't you think?
Leigh: Even if Takeda didn't agree with Emily's plans for vengeance, she is still his student and he will protect her. He knew Tyler and Amanda had to go. I think framing Daniel was just a happy accident for him. Speaking of... where's Amanda?
Dan: Yeah it all makes sense, but I'm still having a tough time wrapping my head around the fact that both Takeda and Emily have such an easy time leaving death and destruction in their path.
Who will Emily save: Daniel or Jack?
Christine: She'll try for both, but it will be probably Jack, which I find disheartening. Daniel really didn't do anything wrong. I've never felt a connection to Jack. I wish he'd take Nolan's advice and head off to Haiti.
Leigh: She will try to save both but beyond that I'm really not sure. Emily is unpredictable.
Dan: Of course she will attempt to save both, and while I think she won't save both of them herself, both Daniel and Jack will end up alright in the end. They need to drag this love triangle on for a while longer.
