'Revenge': The Most Scandalous Moments So Far
Revenge" came along. Now we can't wait for our Wednesday night fix of beautiful rich people, glitzy Hamptons scenery, and the ever-scheming Emily exacting her sweet, sweet vengeance on those who wronged her.
Before tonight's pivotal episode, when we'll finally learn the truth behind the tragic events of Emily and Daniel's engagement party (who's dead? And who killed him?), we thought we'd look back on the most jaw-dropping moments "Revenge" has given us so far.
Victoria says 'I hate you' with a smile
We can pinpoint the exact moment we fell in love with deliciously evil society queen Victoria Grayson, played to icy perfection by Madeleine Stowe: It's when she confronted former friend Lydia (who, to be fair, had been sleeping with Victoria's husband) at a fancy ball and told her that she might smile and hug Lydia in public, but she actually is seething with deep-seated hatred for her. Jeez… we'd hate to see what happens to the people she doesn't hug.
Frank gets whacked by the real Emily
Victoria's bodyguard (and perhaps lover) Frank snooped around enough to discover that Emily had switched identities with her juvie lifemate, Amanda Clarke, and tracked the girl down in a seedy strip club. He was just about to tell all to Victoria when he got a tire iron to the skull, courtesy of Amanda. Frank ended up dead in a ditch, and Emily's secret remained safe -- for now, anyway.
Tyler's got a gun
We're not sure how we feel about Daniel's looney-tunes college roommate, Tyler: He's a little too over-the-top (and for this show, that's saying something), but he's definitely provided a healthy amount of soapy drama. Case in point: When his plans to ride the Graysons to corporate riches fell apart, Tyler resorted to holding Emily at gunpoint and taking Daniel's entire birthday party hostage. The crazy creep was soon detained without any bloodshed, but we think (and we hope) we haven't heard the last from him.
David Clarke... you ARE the father!
The twisted saga of Victoria's affair with Emily's dad (and accused terrorist) David Clarke got even more complicated with a stunning revelation straight out of a "Maury" episode. When Emily dug into the tapes of jailhouse interviews her dad did with bow-tied author Mason Treadwell, she discovered the ugly truth: Daniel's teen sister Charlotte isn't a Grayson at all; David's her real father, making her Emily's half-sister. Not only was this a huge shocker, it had the added benefit of making the annoying Charlotte suddenly much more interesting.
