Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) has had a rough few days on ABC’s Revenge. First she had to watch her childhood love Jack (Nick Wechsler) marry her best friend who also happened to be posing as her, Amanda (Margarita Levieva), and then she had to bury said best friend at sea. That should be enough for the poor girl, right? She should be able to curl up under a cashmere blanket with Aiden (Barry Sloane) and sleep it off until next year’s Hamptons white party.
Unfortunately, there’s no time for that in this world, but that’s actually better than okay because Emily has been newly reinvigorated with her Revengenda. And when Emily has new energy for the same old purpose, so does the show.
