Revenge- Destiny

What happened: In a flashforward, we see that The Amanda will sink and a guy will die. Three months earlier, Amanda is training with Takeda and trying to unlock memories of her mother using near-death experiences, as you do. She remembers something and runs back to the Hamptons after being away for a year. Victoria is presumed dead. Charlotte lived and her father is keeping her locked up in rehab, arranging for her drug tests to come back positive after she is released. Papa Grayson is also trying to get both his children to put their trusts in his company, but they don't look close to caving.

Jack is still with Fake Amanda, but he knows he doesn't love her, so he's turning into an alcoholic who only wants to sleep on his boat. Declan's pretty fed up with the whole thing. To make matters worse, they failed their health inspection for the bar. Amanda tells Jack that he needs to get a paternity test, so Jack asks Fake Amanda for one. Daniel is also an alcoholic, and he's dating Ashley. Nolan took up martial arts and boxing, and he sold his house full of bad memories. He's bunking with Amanda for now and helping her with her current schemes, which involve getting close to the Graysons to find out about her mother.

Amanda figures out that her mother stayed in a mental hospital that closed down just days after her father's arrest. She goes to the abandoned hospital with Nolan and figures out that Victoria had her locked away. Charlotte tells Amanda that Victoria is alive and where to find her. Amanda meets Victoria and helps her free Charlotte. Amanda also plants a camera in Victoria's new little house. Victoria doesn't trust Amanda, so she asks White Hair to kill Amanda.

What we thought: One of the best things about this show is Victoria, so we knew she wasn't dead. They sure took a while to confirm it though, didn't they? We hate Ashley dating Daniel, because we like him and hate her. Not that we blame them. They're both good looking people. Gross, Charlotte is still alive. She's less annoying and more useful so far, but we don't trust that she'll stay that way. We like the guy who "saved" Amanda from drowning. Will we see him again?

Nolan wants to be a fighter now? He needs to drink a few protein shakes, but we have to say, he looks better. Can't Nolan help Jack and Declan fix up the bar? Daniel alerted us to the fact that he's supposed to wait until 5 p.m. to drink. Wait, what? We thought it was noon. Oops. The fashion in this episode made is quake with envy, as usual. When a girl tells you she's pregnant, and you're not married or engaged, always get a paternity test. Always. Find a way. Steal her hair. Chicks leave their hairbrushes just lying around all the time.

Is it crazy that we don't care much about Amanda's quest to find her mother? This isn't really an emotional show, especially since it killed the old dog, but we guess it's a soap and the mother quest might provide some good twists. A lot happened in this episode, and the time jumps weren't annoying, for once. We like that Amanda went away for so long.

Episode grade: B+


  1. Good episode. For awhile they actually had me believing Victoria was dead! How did she survive anyway? Also, does anyone believe Amanda is carrying Jack's baby? I think this is going to be a very interesting season...

    1. She probably got a bad feeling and got off the plane. We want to know what happened to Lydia?

      I kind of think it might be Jack's. Could go either way though.

  2. Agree, agree, agree. You girls are on fire with the reviews lately. Party on.
