In Praise Of Ass-Kicking Emily
As Revenge careens towards what is sure to be the year's most shocking season finale, I have been basking in the increased anger bubbling up within leading lady Emily Thorne, nee Amanda Clarke.
Despite continually crippling her enemies all season long, Emily's most damaging shots stemmed from her meticulously plotted plan -- not her fists. But that all changed following Daniel's unscheduled prison assault.
In exacting her revenge on Lee Moran (R.I.P. homie), Emily tapped back into the girl who ran juvie and laid into him with a fury we've never seen from her before. And as villains have been learning for centuries, once you cross a wronged woman, there is no stuffing the genie back into the bottle.
So I'm pleased to report that aggro Emily continues her reign of terror on tonight's Revenge -- although the target of her aggression is a little unexpected this time.
Revenge airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on ABC.
