That was great! I especially loved Conrad carrying on that his daughter's wearing the wrong dress. He is hysterical!

OMG, how are we only seeing these bloopers for the first time now??! HILARIOUS! The one where Victoria is walking away and she trips is the one that cracked me up the most. They're all a hoot though! LOL :lol:

At that moment, I almost thought he was talking about Emily. Shortly after there was the scene at her beachhouse where he seemed delighted to hear they had broken up, only to look crestfallen when he realized it was a ruse.

I think he just doesn't like or trust Aiden and resents how much time Emily spends on Aiden, and not with Nolan. I still don't feel a romantic connection there, but definitely a deep bond. Nolan is all kinds of awesome and I can't wait to see what he's plotting regarding Grayson Global...

Random thoughts:

Well I knew Padma had an agenda (the show is called Revenge after all), but I didn't know how it would manifest itself. I wish Nolan wasn't the one constantly being the dupe in these situations. Man, I hope he's really got something delicious up his sleeve. The only consolation in this episode was seeing him dressed up all ninja-style.

And as implausible and soapy a world this is, it's a stretch even by Revenge standards to think that Conrad would successfully run for public office. Talk about twisting the narrative in a pretzel to connect Conrad to the Porter's story arc. Maybe he can make me care what happens to them.

Amanda has upgraded from a lead pipe to a gun.

I'm assuming Initiative lady believes that Victoria is responsible for the attack. Hence the previews with Victoria in the cross-hairs. Of course we know that she'll be fine.

A million dollars for a bottle of wine? And it's a bottle of wine gone bad? If that's not a metaphor for Daniel's entire existence I don't know what is.

I love Amanda, but the gun thing was a little funny. She is not very calculating.

I didn't like last night's episode. The idea that Conrad would successfully run for office is ludicrous (although I always love a shot of him flexing his guns--hello, Conrad!). And if Amanda was gonna kill Stupid Brother (there are so many of them), why at the bar with hundreds of potential witnesses? And the Padma/Nolan/the Big Bang Theory lookalike may be the least sexy love triangle ever. Last season, I could've easily envisioned a Tyler/Nolan/Ashley storyline, why did the writers have Nolan stuck with these two losers? Come on, Revenge--get better!

Two things I did love--Emily when speaking with Victoria and Emily with Daniel eating Chinese takeout at his office. Her "Permission granted" line and her WTF expression when the Initiative called as soon as she mentioned Aidan and whatsherface...OMG, so funny. Great work there by Emily Van Camp.

Ah Padma, you naughty girl. It makes sense - she was the one who alerted Daniel to Nolcorps founding, but what I can't work out is why she was in Nolcorp in the first place. The initiative MUST know who Emily really is and be keeping close tabs on her and her friends. It's the only explanation that makes any sense.

Well, they seem to be really interested in this "Carrion" project (some kind of über-spyware / financial hacking program I think). It's entirely possible they heard about it through some other otherwise innocent means (Marco? someone else we haven't met yet?), decided they wanted it, then planted Padma to get there. Emily could be just highly coincidental collateral damage in this particular plotline.

Sending hacked emails aside, Padma is fairly amateurish. I tend to think she lost a family member in the plane crash, or she's the daughter of one of the terrorists trying avenge him in some way.

If she really is working for the initiative, then I'd be disappointed as there's already too much initiative in this story - I want more on real people. At least they are making fun of it in a way - all very Bondish. I did like that Emily clued in immediately that Crawley was spying on them. She will use that to her advantage.

What REALLY annoys me is the impossibility that someone like Padma - young, never an executive - would EVER be the CFO of a company worth hundreds of millions of dollars if not more. The CFO is in some ways the most important person in a company of that size, and they are privy to every deep dark secret. Nolan may be an emotional mess in his personal relationships, but he's smart in business, so there's no way he should have given someone with no resume and no background check that level of responsibility. And we know how easy it is for him to look people up for heaven's sake. I can see him wanting to trust someone - but not in that position.

Similarly Marco - while it's possible that Marco was at his side when the company was an upstart, at some point in its growth, every tech startup that hits the big time hires a few seasoned executives - they have to. I guess Nolcorp was never public and doesn't have a board (although I thought this was mentioned at some point, no?), because Nolan's choices for CFO would have never been allowed.

As for Conrad - my favourite character these past few eps! - I think his toying with public office is completely realistic. Men with shadier pasts have succeeded, and let's also remember that men like that have such huge egos that they think they can get away with a lot. Keep in mind he hasn't said what office he wants to run for either - could be a simple as mayor of Montauk, or a position in the state legislature, where people often want to support a local guy who's going to look out for their interests. Plus, he's only putting out feelers - again realistic to see what his opportunities might be. Plus he's bored - this is a way of keeping busy, an excuse to stay in the thick of things, and to mess with everybody, Conrad style. :)

Also, did everyone notice that Stonewall or whatever, that Crawley says is going to be very valuable in what was it? a few months? is a salvage company. Sounds like they are planning another terrorist strike, and want to have a company lined up to do the clean up who is on their side and will help cover up their involvement - and why not make some money along the way when they get the huge contract and triple their value?

Did anyone else pick up on the synchronized leg crossing when Emily sat down with Victoria? So now we're supposed to see how they are becoming alike?

Who's body was it that was showed before the "2 Days Ago" flashback? Was that Emily when she was pretending to be shot?

Yes, that was a shot of Emily at the beginning.

A solid episode. I really loved that final scene between Emily and Daniel--it's been awhile since I really felt a spark between them. Although, it was assy of Daniel to leave his sister's party after a minute of attendance.

Aiden is hot, but I really don't care about his sister. And couldn't he have tried to kill Victoria in more subtle ways?

Loved that Nolan discovers what Padma is up to so quickly, thank goodness. I actually liked the two of them together. I LOVE his new house. At first, I thought the key chain was another Initiative hidden camera. But I guess not.

Please, please, will Emily finally get involved in the Stoopid Brothers plot and finally finish it off?
