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...? :(

Listen Up!

Take 2! We welcome Patrick back for a fun romp through the sad sad Amanda’s funeral episode. RETRIBUTION! Emily is 100 percent sure it was the Graysons who are responsible for Amanda’s death and she’s mostly right, except as always she focuses her ire on her one true object of revenge (Victoria) when really Victoria was all “who the fuck is Nate Ryasdaksld Conrad, and why does my mouth hurt when I say his name, is he poor!!?” 

So despite the fact that Amanda’s death was pretty much as unconnected with Emily as is possible, given that they’re bffs who share each others name and past and present and are sisters, Jack is still super pissed at Emily because like…reasons. Because its Emily’s responsibility to tell Jack that Amanda was plotting revenge i guess? Jack is a dickface, who cares. WELL APPARENTLY ME because i can’t let go how arguably he is the one who fucked up and got the Ryans all up in their bar and got Amanda killed. 

Danny is still having his mini crisis of conscience and is all like ALL WE HAVE IS BLOOD MONEY AND IM TIRED OF FEELING BAD ALL THE TIME MOM CANT WE JUST HAVE ALL THE MONEY AND NO BLOOD, OR AT LEAST POSSIBLY LESS BLOOD?

Shhhhhh go to sleep Danny, go to sleep forever.  

ELI JAMES???

Listen Up!

Watch out everyone because in this sterling episode of Revenge, things are really heating up! And I'm not just talking about the weather (though the unseasonably hot weather is such an essential plot point of this episode that it's bordering on that annoying thing where people say "Los Angeles is like its own character in this movie, man), but the things that are happening while the weather is hot are also very hot in a metaphorical sense! As the scene opens, we find Helen Crowley dead in our pool house! What do we do! Somehow I was SO sure that they changed into their Super Taupe Tones body disposal outfits the night of the murder but actually those were their NEXT DAY AFTER MURDER outfits, which does make more sense. Nothing screams innocence like beige, obviously.

Meanwhile, back on the other side of the ocean, Jamanda's first morning of unrestrained wedded bliss is interrupted by a Very Sneaky Hamper Man, name of Anders vonPyramidPlayer. In a trial that would test even the strongest of marriages, Anders deploys his "Grossly Misinterpret Conrad's Intent" stratagem and holds the newly wedded Clarke-Porters hostage in search of the evidence. But as it turns out, Anders learned all his tactics from an old copy of Stratego, so while he's trying to figure out if Jack and Amanda "surrounded their flag with bombs, or if that's just another bomb in the middle, and what if it's actually in the front row with all the pawns, nobody ever expects you to put it in the front row???" Jack proves he has a knack (or is that a "jack"???) for subterfuge after all, and Amanda's eyes are drawing a Looney Toons-style dotted line between that fire extinguisher and the back of Anders's head.

Back on the mainland, though, it is still hot! And you know it's hot because everyone SAYS it is, including Nolan who has a FAN and AW MAN THE AIR CONDITIONER BROKE and if we weren't before, we're definitely going to kill the Baby Coral now, Chocolate! BUT LOOK WE HAVE TO GET THROUGH THIS PODCAST BECAUSE WE ARE VERY HUNGRY SO MOVE MOVE MOVE. Emily and Nolan are on a boat! Aiden drags Padma all the way to NYC to tell her something he basically could've texted her, and jeezy creezy thank god they skip that car trip and save us the torment. Like what would their road trip conversations even be about? What the hell would the two blandest people on the planet talk about for two hours? "Omg, can you believe we're both love Saltines and the Dave Matthews Band??" Yes Padmaiden, I can.

Back on the ocean, time is running out! Emily is moving the throttle forward and Nolan is boat hacking (and doing a very good job at not throwing up!) As the episode hastens to a close, we meet the inscrutable TRASK and, what's more, discover TRASK HAS A TASK (and that task is to find out what has happened to Helen Crowley). Perhaps more pertinently, we're given incontrovertible evidence that Emily in fact does have a feeling, it just took her eight years to express it!! (and now Taye Diggs is after her, shit!)

As this Very Important Episode of Revenge comes to a close, resolves are tested, hearts are broken, and wills are reforged into something colder than iron and harder than steel--but the next time your number comes up on that big, karmic wheel, Fauxmanda, maybe just let the necklace go...?

Topics for Consideration: Gantz: The Suffering of Ealstan Stinky Boat Bed THE NECTAHS: Curse of the WereSouthie Ashley and Her Sizable Bag of Tricks of Many Pockets. Conrad Grayson: Road Warrior The Food Pon Farr Jackting! LMS or "Lobster Monger Syndrome" The Adventures of "Blunt Trauma" One and "No Feelings" One, an Emily and/or Emily Amanda and/or Amanda story.
