‘Revenge’ Tonight!

posted by Nell Minow

The guilty pleasure of the fall television season is “Revenge,” a deliciously twisted story of a beautiful young woman (Emily VanCamp as “Emily Thorne”) who returns to the super-rich, super-luxurious, super-dysfunctional world of the Hamptons to wreck the title fate on those responsible for framing and destroying her father.  The first few episodes were fun as we got to see Emily X out of a photograph some of the supporting players.  She exposed a rising politician by having his pregnant mistress show up at a fund-raiser.  She busted a psychologist by publicly airing the videotapes of her private sessions.  And she has been making progress in gaining the confidence and affections of Daniel (Joshua Bowman), the son of wealthiest and most powerful couple in the Hamptons, Conrad Grayson (Henry Czerny) and his wife, “Queen” Victoria Grayson (the fabulous Madeline Stowe).  Soapy and melodramatic, yes.  But now things are really getting interesting.  Emily’s old friend, the one who swapped identities with her, has shown up after killing the Grayson’s man of affairs who was getting too close to the truth about Emily’s real past.  We’re promised some big surprises in tonight’s episode.  Can’t wait!
