Aiden is smarter, hotter, and is the only one we've seen on this show that (so far) understands Emily. I have to say, I'm not a huge fan of lurrrve quadrangles, but after the first couple of episodes, bringing on this character makes a lot of sense to me. Plus, it gives us nifty Emily backstory.

I would never believe Nolan and Emily. It just doesn't work at all. They feel like siblings too me and I would be seriously squicked if they got together.
That too. He doesn't deserve the abuse she gives him and it's getting old. Like, she continually compromises her revenge-y plans for the likes of Jack and Daniel, but she won't let Nolan, who is a truly awesome friend and has been working with her fabulously from the very beginning and loves her so very much, in at all? Irritating. I mean, yeah, she's had a few moments where she clearly cares about him, but they're few and far between and mostly she just uses him and then tosses him aside with no thank you like a wet rag.
I like Emanda & Aiden too. He's totally hot and definitely understands her way better than anyone else. I also like her and Nolan's sibling like relationship. I don't have siblings myself but isn't it normal for siblings to not always get along but totally have each other's backs? That sounds like Nolan and Emanda for sure. This show is SO good and so much fun. I can't wait to see what happens next!

She did say to save the baby, but didn't say "before me."
Ahhh, the coma - favorite of TV writers everywhere.

The Declan/Jack saga is truly awful. I can't sum up any interest in the agenda of that guy who is working with the kid who brought Declan to steal things. I suppose it's possible it falls into the larger narrative, but it's clunky writing. I also feel like the Nolan/Padma relationship was rushed (although I LOL when the box collapsed just when he went in for this kiss).
I wasn't wowed by this episode. But I still like the soapiness aspect of the main story. And I like the ongoing questions:
1) What was in the frame that Padma picked up that made her stop and stare at it? I didn't catch it.
2) Has Amanda's mother been aware of where Fauxmanda is all this time? Or are we supposed to believe she hasn't bothered searching until now? And WTF with trying to keep young Amanda under the water? Victoria says the mother wanted to kill Amanda? We know WHM tried to kill Emily (and knew that Emily was the real Amanda Clark), but did WHM ever tell the mother about "Emily" before he went missing?
Things that make you go hmmmm
it looked like it was a framed check. like when he started his business he wrote his father a check for the start up costs or something but i didnt catch the amt
I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!
It was from David Clarke.
And Emanda's mother did try to kill her. That's what she was trying to remember underwater in the first episode this season and what Victoria told fauxmanda before she did a header off the balcony.
Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.
I'm getting downton & revenge confused, wondering if Mrs. Hughes will bring a wet nurse for Jack and Fauxmanda's baby. LOL!
And is it me or did Emanda's acting skills totally improve this year?
One question though. How did Aiden end up back at Emily's place? And also...am I the only one who doesn't feel she has any chemistry with Aiden at all? I'm not a Jack shipper either, but I don't feel it with Aiden.
One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching.
I can't believe I missed Revenge live so I could watch Hanyu strip on the ice! This episode was AMAZING! Also, that bit with Declan and Charlotte? So touching.
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*?
If so, she's either completely nuts, or there's a reason for it - perhaps Emanda is not David's daughter after all, but rather the child of someone mother thinks is eville, and of course the first thought there is Conrad.
As for the Jack/Declan story, x1000. Jack was supposed to be a hero in this - a good guy, but not a boring stupid guy. Ditto Declan - a good guy, someone young and stupid, but not THAT stupid.
And for Nolan - I was liking getting to know NolCorp, but they've suddenly decided he's completely in love with Emily, which I don't like - I'm for the sibling relationship that worked so well last season - just to make him vulnerable to whatever Padma's up to - which is clearly something to do with David Clarke now. She's given Emily a few looks that might have been simple rivalry, but now may be that she has an idea of who Emily really is. Remember that as CFO you'd be privy to who the shareholders are, and Amanda Clarke has a 49% interest in NolCorp (or maybe Emily Thorne does, which would still lead Padma to wonder why this woman has such a huge interest in the company, and she could easily put 2+2 together - especially now that she knows that David Clarke was actually an early *investor* in the company and therefore his heirs might retain a significant interest).
I don't like that Nolan, who is capable of finding out anything about anyone very easily, hired Padma for such a crucial position in his company - one privy to everything and with a great deal of power - without any checking whatsoever.
As for the WHM telling her about Emily, I'm thinking no. He doesn't seem to have told anyone what he knew. I'm guessing he was holding onto that information for leverage.
