LOL, apparently Nolan loves his CFO, regardless of gender.

They do, don't they. The plot thickens.

I don't think the hair colour is "symbolic" in any way, except when it was dark it was when she was in her dark & moody teen stage.

I think you've just agreed with my point there - dark hair symbolised the dark, moody Amanda. She went blonde when she started her revenge.

I do wonder where they're going with Aiden, though. Is he a permanent character? We know he couldn't save his sister, but is he going to help Emanda?

Also...going from the preview next week, I think Nolan might be in luck...

I also thought that there was a connection between the two CFOs that might explain her knowledge and interest in David Clarke's investment, but later in the ep they said his name, and it doesn't fit. Padma Lahari appears to be South Asian, while Marco's last name is Martinez or something similarly Spanish sounding. Then at the end we see why he was introduced - when Daniel called him.

And the Boring Brothers are still boring 6 years ago. I wonder how the reaction has been to that SL in the wider fandom - hopefully they will wrap that SL up soon so we can free up valuable airtime for the other characters and SLs.

ETA - according to the cast list for the next ep on IMDB, it's Marco Romero.

Padma, I thought was of Indian descent. Marco could be from a predictable Hispanic country or possibly from the Philippines.

I had the same thought.

I'm puzzled here: are "Emanda" and "Amanda" the same character, or are the spellings different on purpouse, and in that case who's who?

'Emanda' is Emily, who is really Amanda. 'Fauxmanda' is 'Amanda', who is really Emily. Emanda/Emily is also referred to as Amily :) Confused? ;)

I wish we would just refer to them a Emily and Amanda, as they call themselves. It's easier to keep track of.

Where's the fun in that? ;)

I find that confusing because it is not always that clearcut. What do we call the little girl who grew to become now Emily. She was Amanda then.when someone says emanda I know exactly who it is.

I like Fauxmanda for the real Emily (curly haired nut job).

But for the real Amanda Clarke (blond)....I can't decide if Emanda or Amily is better.

It's a huge dilemma :)

I enjoyed the episode but I felt it a bit lacking in a twist, esp. given this was the last episode of the calendar year. Either the writers should've had Victoria tell Emily why they should team up or had Nolan tell Padma what he plans to do.

Is this it for Ashley? To be frank, the writers treat this character like garbage in a manner that has always made me uncomfortable. I suspect she'll be used by Aiden--he splits up with Emily (as per Daniel's orders) and then starts a relationship with Ashley.

I liked that it liked a twist--I feel like a lot of shows go horribly wrong when they feel the need to top the previous show every time. Especially in a show like Revenge, you need some breathing room, and if you're going on hiatus for a while, this is a good way to do it. I also thought it was perfectly titled.

As for Ashley, I think the writers have been fairly consistent with her character. She might want to do the right thing, but she consistently does the easy thing instead which gets her into trouble. She always backs the wrong horse because her ambition exceeds her intelligence.

I'm starting to like Fauxmanda a lot--in contrast to many of the other characters, she seems to have learned something and is willing to just let the past be the past. The small conversations between her and Emanda have been very well done this season in revealing a lot about both characters' states of mind. Daniel is growing on me, like a particularly virulent fungus or genital rash. He was the perfect choice for the "path is not clear" part. I also like that they're showing Emanda somewhat wavering--she wants a family, she's concerned with happiness, etc.

I'd like for at the end of this show for Nolan at least to sail happily away with a bevy of beautiful accounting-minded boys and girls to some secluded island where they can have wild orgies and do math all day.
