Amanda needs to save Nolcorp or I'll be pissed. Nolan doesn't deserve to lose control of his company.

what's the significance of Amily's back? Treadwell seemed to have picked up something.

Ah. But how does Treadwell know?

Amily and Emanda on the porch was really, really good, and I'm so glad the writers on this show don't drag things out. We do need to keep Emily somewhat human.

Curses, Frankenstorm! They were showing stupid weather reports at 9:00, then joined Revenge "in progress". It was only the first few minutes, but still! Hope I didnt miss anything.


Ah. But how does Treadwell know?

Treadwell interviewed Amanda when she was young. Perhaps she told him about it/showed him? I wonder what's in that folder.

I am very confused about who's on whos side. The Initiative, the FBI? they talk like they were on the same team, but certainly not now.

Edited to clarify: Mommy Clark, Victoria, Conrad... they talk like they were on the same side, but it's obvious they arent now (or at least, they dont trust eachother).

And someone mentioned Mommy Clark being held captive by WHM... is that true? or is that something that MC told Victoria? Or am I more confused than I originally thought?

Aiden probably provided Treadmill with the contents of that folder.

I have to admit I liked that moment between Emily and Amanda. The show needs at least one close female relationship.

I hate that Aiden is conspiring with Daniel to take control of Nolcorp. Yay for Emily for saying NO WAY!

The history of Kara and the WHM is still a mystery. She left the mental hospital with him, presumably to be killed. However, at some point he decided she was worth more to him alive than dead.

Fast forward to modern day and she is in love with him and according to Aiden - married to him.

So the question is when did she fall in love with him. Was it an act on his part? Her part? Is it a case of Stockholm Syndrome or did she really get to know him? How much did he trust her and vice versa? Obviously he didn't tell her everything, as she is not aware that Emanda is actually her daughter, David's innocence in the terrorist act, the WHM killing David, etc. If she is aware, she's doing a good job of hiding it.

You know Padma is totally a cold-stoned bitch. I mean, she didn't go back to see her dying mom because of a job *interview*?

As Jen said above, it was her grandmother, not her mother. And IIRC correctly, Padma already had the new job, it wasn't just an interview, and it was said as "your grandmother caught a bad flu" not "your grandmother is dying." So based on that incident alone, I don't think it was cold or bitchy.

However there is something questionable there. Did she investigate the Grayson Inc. & David Clarke just to show her initiative, to try to impress Nolan? Or is she working for someone else? I really hope the former, even if it was stupid. I can't say I love the character, but Nolan deserves some relationship happiness, even if it is shortlived.

I'm pretty sure this is the first time we've heard that Emily sold her shares in Nolcorp, though. It makes sense in retrospect, though: she'd be far more involved in his business if she did still have a 49% interest.

I don't know enough about corporate law to know if the Graysons' claim on Nolcorp is legit. If they did have an exclusivity clause with Clarke (which I'm assuming they do), surely they'd have cause to go after Clarke and any profits he made (and therefore Emanda, as his beneficiary). Even if Emanda sold the shares, surely any claim Grayson Inc had would still be on that parcel of money, wherever it is now, not on Nolcorp? Which would mean that Emanda is more in jeopardy here than Nolan.

And what the hell is Aiden up to, pointing out Clarke's involvement to Daniel? Is he trying to ruin Emanda or Nolan financially? Or just trying to get Daniel to trust him?

I can't say I'm thrilled about this whole financial angle on the story ... but at least it's better than the eye-rolling saga of the Porters.

I love that idiot Daniel immediately grasped the significance of David Clark investing his personal money in NolCorp while he still worked for GG.

Or is she working on her own behalf? My first thought, last week when she found the check, was that she knew someone who was on the plane that the terrorists blew up.

Hmm, didn't think of that. Interesting perspective.

That could be an interesting twist...very John Grishamish.

But why would she leave the framed cheque right out in the open for Nolan to see? If had some mischievous intention, I would think she'd hide it somewhere safe.

Why would she hide it? Nolan knows the check exists.

She easily lied when asked. Not to mention she basicaly gave Nolan a chance to say something.

If she had hid it, DavidnClarke's name stays out of the conversation. She has some reason for wanting it in the open.

I doubt it, because that would seriously undermine Emily and I believe he's on her side. Treadwell has tons of contacts from when he wrote the book, so not surprising that he knew of an old injury. btw, one would guess that happened when she was older, not when Treadwell interviewed her as a child.


I hate that Aiden is conspiring with Daniel to take control of Nolcorp. Yay for Emily for saying NO WAY!

I think Aiden is up to something else. I don't think he's interested in becoming rich and powerful - he's just using the obviously vulnerable daddy-issues Daniel to further his own agenda.

Remember that he's on a revenge track too - we don't yet know what it is. But I do think he won't screw over Emily, and since he just found out that Nolan is important to her, I can't imagine he will screw him over either.

And thankfully, Nolan is now waking up and will hopefully get back in control of the company he has been neglecting of late.



So the question is when did she fall in love with him. Was it an act on his part? Her part? Is it a case of Stockholm Syndrome or did she really get to know him? How much did he trust her and vice versa? Obviously he didn't tell her everything, as she is not aware that Emanda is actually her daughter, David's innocence in the terrorist act, the WHM killing David, etc. If she is aware, she's doing a good job of hiding it.

From what I can tell, WHM was supposed to kill Kara, and didn't for whatever reason - perhaps to use her against the Graysons, given his habit of going rogue. She in her mental state thought she was being rescued and that she had Victoria to thank for it, and our smooth Victoria doesn't miss a beat and just went along with it.

I'm guessing that WHM had Kara well under control all these years, and that had he lived, there's no way he would have let her get anywhere near the Hamptons, or even catch the news for that matter. Recall that WHM also had another house - the one filled with clocks - so he's been leading a double or triple life for some time.



I'm pretty sure this is the first time we've heard that Emily sold her shares in Nolcorp, though. It makes sense in retrospect, though: she'd be far more involved in his business if she did still have a 49% interest.

I think so too - just last week we were wondering if Padma had id'd her, given that she was a major shareholder. Mind you, if she's going back to David Clarke's time, and has discovered the initial investment, then she either knows or is close to knowing that his daughter once owned a large share of the company. This seriously compromises Emily's careful switcheroo with Amanda - who is supposed to be a poor orphan, not an extremely wealthy heiress. The question will be, where did that money go?


I can't say I'm thrilled about this whole financial angle on the story ... but at least it's better than the eye-rolling saga of the Porters.

Amen to that.


Or is she working on her own behalf? My first thought, last week when she found the check, was that she knew someone who was on the plane that the terrorists blew up.

VERY interesting thought. Further to above - Padma perhaps is tracing where the money went, because she believes she has a claim on it - like you say perhaps a family member of someone who died on the plane. Or a Thomas Crown Affair style character, looking to recover the insurance money. Or another Talented Mr Hamptons - someone with financial smarts who knows that tens of millions or more is missing, and thinks that she might be able to find it to her own advantage.
