Dolphin noises and clapping. Dolphin noises and clapping, especially through the first half hour. Oh my god.

Except for the part where the final sequence used the song I was just starting to vid.

Umm, oops.

My bad for planning Florence and the Machine, I suppose. It's okay, I have a backup.



Emily and Nolan are officially my favorite people on the planet and they are not even real people. I want more of Emily and Nolan!! When all of this is over, I want them to go on the road and just play long cons against rich people everywhere, like the Leverage team! With hugs!! Lots of hugging just before Emily goes all ninja and beats up a guy.

And the white haired guy! He's evil but he's my third favorite person, with the winking!!

Also, I loved how after All Was Revealed and everything, Emily was, like, smiling. And happy! It became so clear that we'd never seen her be genuinely happy and relaxed ever, and now the world needs more happy Emily.

Charlotte is kind of annoying and particularly contrived, which is the biggest sour note. I mean, everything is contrived (the government only had one copy of the evidence and didn't, say, ship it straight to an evidence lab?), but Charlotte calling Declan before screaming for, maybe, her father was kind of ridiculous.

That said, NOLAN AND EMILY 4 EVER AND EVER!!! Hugging with bloody faces!!! And drinking champagne!!!! "Don't do anything revenge-y!!" All the sparkly hearts.

Clearly you and the show are thinking alike vis a vis musical imagery?

I too want Emily&Nolan forever.

The show lost points for not ever considering, say, chain of custody (what was going to happen to that evidence when it arrived in DC, anyway?), but I am looking forward to how Emily deals with an ex-fiance gone to the dark side. And I sincerely hope Charlotte was trying to kill herself because she heard everything her father said to her mother.

Hah. YES to all of this.

This show has been all kinds of unexpectedly awesome.

I fear the same thing.

And, funny that, if you replace "Emily and Nolan" with "Sam and Dean" I think you may have just described the fate of another show we have in common.

Prison Break is what this is reminding me of -- Emily as Michael Scofield, and Nolan as... Sucre, possibly.

Huh! Good point! I guess only time will tell if Revenge will be like PB in that S1 was great, S2 was okay, and everything after that was... less than.

Or like SPN in that I consider S2 and some of S3 to be the best ;)

But Emily is totally a female Michael Scofield. I dig it.

The conspiracy angle widening beyond what the protagonist had initially set out to do is very Prison Break-ish.

And I just cracked up realising that Charlotte is TOTALLY Lincoln. Bwah. (Amanda as T-Bag?...)

Amanda as T-Bag?...

Well.... so far she hasn't been presented as quite such an asshole - and I hope the show doesn't go that route because then I will get really upset about gender politics stuff (low-class, liar, pregnancy manipulates boyfriend, on and on). But that said, T-Bag was a pretty great bad-guy :D

Anyway, I feel you on the conspiracy angle. It seems like that happens a lot, these shows just collapsing under their own weight when the focus widens.

*nod* she's still far removed from T-Bag's villainy, but she has the violent impulses, yearning for a better life, dramatic flair, crush on the lead, and ability to get under their skin while alternately helping and hindering their plans that T-Bag had.

It was fantastic.

And Victoria and Lydia riding off *together*! Except their plane blew up.

I'm not sure -- I wouldn't rule it out, but it seemed like a possible Redemption = Death thing for Victoria. Do we know if Madeleine Stowe is coming back next season, or moving on back to movies?

(...of course, she'd have to be back for flashbacks.)

Geez yes. I could ship them, even, but it's totally not necessary. I'm totally fine with the notion of them being BFFs and taking people down all over. Pretty please? (Someone at least needs to write the fic.)

I do wish the show would get over the idea that Jack is a good endgame for Emily, though. He so couldn't handle her.

Watching Emily and Nolan interact is one of my favorite bits. (Sorry to be late to the party, I just managed to finished the season today.)

Am I the only person who kinda sorta likes Charlotte? I can see where she'd be annoying to people! But I can't help but feel bad for her because OMG, toxic family.
