Last week on Revenge, Emily Thorne warmed our hearts once again with a renewed vow to wreak vengeance on the Graysons. After the devastating death of her bestie from juvie, Emily gets back to Revenge basics by plotting to have the Graysons pay for her pain.
The Revenge episode opens with an emotional performance by Emily. Storming into the house covered in blood, Emily heads for her gun, ready for immediate retaliation. Nolan, close on her heels, tries to reason with her. “Nate had every reason to go after Jack and Amanda,” he says. “We don’t know the Graysons were behind this.” Emily, however, refuses to be convinced. Turning on Nolan, she tells him not to bother: “Don’t tell me to let go. Not when I’m standing here covered in the blood of one of the only people that I ever loved.” With Nolan’s pleas neutralized, Aiden enters on queue - but to no avail. Emily is hell-bent on revenge. Heading upstairs to change out of her bloody clothes, Emily picks Amanda’s necklace out of her pocket. The discovery calms her. Then, opening the necklace’s locket, Emily stares into a photo of her and Amanda as teens. At the sight of the two orphans, Emily loses it completely.
Meanwhile, Conrad and Victoria – still suspects in Helen’s murder - meet with Mr. Trask, another scary operative bound to the Initiative. They give Mr. Trask the low-down on Nate Ryan and Emily’s missing computer, which contains compromising info on the Graysons. Jack Porter, however, is still alive to refute their story. As a result, Conrad visits Jack in the hospital to fish for info on the lost laptop. Jack doesn’t fall for the ploy and convinces Conrad that Nate Ryan’s vendetta was behind his wife’s death. Jack confides the real reason for Amanda’s murder to Emily and Nolan. Jack is determined to locate the lost computer. Later, at the Stowaway, he stumbles upon a key that most likely unlocks its hiding place. Sure enough, it doesn’t take long before Jack has uncovered Emily’s laptop. Without a password, however, he is unable to access the incriminating evidence.
Emily, who has pieced together that the Graysons were framing Amanda in order to derail the Initiative, gives an emotional eulogy at her soul sister’s funeral. At the same time, Aiden, who has skipped out on the service, returns to the Stowaway to swipe Emily’s laptop. At the end of the episode, Aiden returns the computer to Emily, who throws it into the ocean.
