How can we only be on the 9th episode of Revenge this season? It feels like it’s gearing up for the season finale, what with Emily’s Crazy Misguided Revenge Wedding and all, but I guess that’s merely going to be its MID-SEASON finale, which means we’re going to get another six months of… I don’t even know. 10 episodes of Emily getting her ass handed to her? That seems unlikely. I just hope someone lets Roger Bart out of jail for the nuptials.
Fug File: Fug The Show
I’m going to spare you the torture-porn aspects of this episode, because it’s insane to me that Scandal has now become Saw 24: Alias Homeland.
Oh, and the anagram for this week is “Steven Carrington,” which I am telling you now because I found one that I liked for the first slide.
It was a fairly tame week for Rayna, which I assume is because they gave all the fashion crack to Juliette.
In which Carrie loses her virginity both with a bang and a whimper. In the sense that she has sex, off-camera, and it was all hunky-dory with no drama.
These Halloween episodes make me a little crazy, because they have become WAY more central to the plot of the main series than a seasonal one-off should be. Fortunately, this one was mostly meandering and setting up the Ravenswood spinoff, before the big movements at the end. So I think we can make this quick. Famous last words, by the way; you know there’s seventeen nuances I have already forgotten that will end up being the crux of the next slew of episodes.
This show is a charming delight, and this particular episode had everything: pastries! Festivals! Bizarre uses of neon! People dramatically screeching as they careened down stairs! Senior citizen romance! Latkes! Corn mazes! Kissing! Drugs! REALLY cute outfits!
