Listen Up!

In this edition of the Revengecast post I'm typing this while Graz streams Dark Souls 3 so apologies for brevity or a (greater than normal) lack of cohesion!

Tonight, we welcome Spankminister's expertise for this Very Special Episode of Revenge, by which I mean it involves not only 90s-style hackers, but also 90s-style video games (by which I mean Street Fighter 2, boyyy!) On this cyberbattlescape where bits are bytes and bytes are the only thing that's real, the notorious Falcon (who is definitely a man) learns a valuable lesson about friendship (maybe!) from... wait, do my eyes deceive me or is that the beautiful and handsome Ryan Gosling star of hit movie, The Driver Man??

Yes friends, tonight, truly the fingerless gloves and Chun-Li kicks flow like rose-scented sweet water as we spiral into a dizzyingly dark descent wherein we discover that Jack Porter may be not only Stupidly Honest Kanzaki Nao BUT ALSO The Ultimate Survivor AKA Kaiji (JUST GET NAKED AND WALK THAT STEEL BEAM, BUDDY, THAT DEBT AIN'T GONNA CLEAR ITSELF), and mull over whether Victoria contemplating her past might be just a little self-serving and/or narcissistic and/or you know, she's kinda got a point though, what's a seventeen-year-old mom gonna do with a kid when Paris is on the horizon?? Who would blame her? Not me!!

(well, maybe me; but at the same time, I understand completely her choices, and to a certain extent believe they were best for everyone involved)

And so, in our own way, we all wish we possessed both Victoria's overwhelming inner strength and her consummate ability for self-deception, because couldn't we all use a bit of Baptism By Haute Couture, here and there? Meanwhile, Charlotte's permitting herself a nice night of Girl on Grayson Action (tm!) and we're sitting here like a bunch of dopes fretting over Declan's remarkably inexpert child care abilities, lamenting Baby Carl's unenviably status as the world's first infant to experience post-partum depression while JUJU CHANG IS IN THE SITTING ROOM RIGHT NOW. HOLY CRAP. EVERYONE GET A MOVE ON, THERE'S NO TIME!

Listen Up!

It's been a surprisingly long time since the last Revengecast, especially since we recorded this one before Graz went away to Colorado, but what can you do? We ain't in the army and we don't get up at reveille.

(that being said, we are always striving to be more punctual and we apologize for the delay in Your Content)

ANYWAY. In this episode of Revenge, everyone's prepping for an October Surprise, which is not as fun as it sounds and is probably not a delicious, refreshing traditional English dessert (the jury's still out). All over New York, fall, the election, and the masquerade ball are in full swing! While we dither about what is/is not Page 6, Conrad struggles to get his Town Hall (in Jack's Bar) Meeting to the perfect pitch of down-home, working-class charm. Don't worry Conrad, the casual, relatable way you remove your blazer is sure to (working )class the PANTS OF those filthy Vox Populi (vote Grayson). But it would sure be helpful if Ashley stopped interrupting our practice debate to run intermediary because back at the house, mysterious notes are being dropped off re: one suspiciously Long Lost Son. Who could it be!

Well it's probably not Padma, who has vanished, not that you'd know from Aiden's completely cavalier attitude about the whole thing, considering how Nolan's gone full Dollhouse and is writing conspiracy grids all over his corner office mirrors in his quest to FIND THE NUMBERS.  It's like Aiden can't be bothered to care about how Nolan's so depressed that it's all he can do to pick up the phone and order expensive delivery sushi whenever he's feeling slightly peckish. Apparently, all AIDEN cares about is tying red string around an increasingly muddled collage of low-DPI black and white printouts of Manhattan's manifold butts (and casually sliding his way out of the room when Hyper-Advanced 1920s Crime Robot Ethan(??) Trask shows up to complain about his investment portfolio (and also why the murders haven't happened yet)). Also, also does Aiden seriously not have a secret identity and he's just been going around with the same last name as the guy who blew up the plane THIS WHOLE SHOW IS ABOUT and nobody has noticed up until this point?? That seems like a strange oversight to me???

At some point we try to determine if any Pokemon can truly sum up the essence of Victoria (spoiler alert: Freiza???)

Look, let's face it: whatever important stuff might or might not happen in this episode, the only thing worth caring about is the masquerade, and what a masquerade it's been! While treachery abounds and disasters pop off like champagne corks all over the island (thanks a lot, Aiden!!) Victoria's haunting by THE PAHST comes to a canonical head when the specters of her THE PAHST come back to haint her at the very masquerade party she worked so hard on all month to make sure it was spooky-HYPHEN-fun. The *fun* part was important, Ashley, didn't you get the iMemo?? This masquerade ball isn't spooky-HYPHEN-fun, it's just spooky, and that's not ANY kind of fun, hyphen or no! Also, who keeps playing Wagner or maybe Mozart everywhere it's starting to piss me off and make me feel faint.

This is a worse masquerade than the one Danny's impromptu incarceration canceled last year!!! >:|  And all this after Victoria gots this close to inducting Charlotte into the Sisterhood of the Time Traveling Past Balcony until she gets bored and forgets she's supposed to care about her daughter when--overcome by the eddying currents of the TIME BALCONY--she remembers she has not one, but two sons for which she bears a deep unrequited love about which she allows absolutely no introspection about the whats and/or whens of her actions that may've caused her maternal love to be unrequited in the first place (2x spoiler alert: don't leave your baby on some doorstep if you don't want him to send you ominous black roses thirty years later).

So this week in Revengecast we're a little heavy on plot synopsis but as per usual there are a lot of byzantine machinations to go through. Yes I know machinations already implies that they are byzantine but it's for emphasis, don't worry about it. SO these particular revanches involve foster brother Eli and their Dickensian orphanage (Revenge's own words, it's in the script) named Hayward House, more like HeyWORST House. We see more of baby Gothmanda and her predilection for using red markers to X out her enemies--in this case her very own father! But all she has are those awesome children's smelly markers and so she has to smite him, but with the scent of cherry. We once again fail to do our homework on sartorial terminology, I dont even know what you call a blazer with two rows of buttons. I should have bought this book which is real and NOT a joke:

So we're also continuing the Tale of the Nine-Fingered Padma’s Father and the Carrion of Doom, and Nolan is making some pretty serious promises to Padma that nothing bad will ever happen to her or her dad ever again. Unfortunately these promises end up coming down to Aiden, who proves once again that he is bad at his job. Don’t worry Nolan Padma will be FINE. This mission that Emily can’t supervise because she is in New Haven for some reason will definitely go well. I have a degree from Tanaka’s Correspondence Revenge School, now hear me out, its not as fancy as Takeda’s school but I have studied the butts of ALL the initiative members (that I know of) and I am ready to shoot them there (in their butts) with my sniper rifle. Unless of course they're turned around, but what are the chances of that? Or oh god what if they are sitting down...NO Tanaka warned me about this, this is what we call "self doubt" and it is the enemy of revenge. I WILL BE ABLE TO SEE THEIR BUTTS NOLAN. I swear it to you.

ELI JAMES...? :(
