Summary: Emily gets a new timeline as she renews her journey for revenge; Victoria reconnects with her son, creating problems in her family; a peek at a wedding looks to be leading to Emily's downfall.
This season just might be the most exciting one yet. It opens with a bang and it makes you wonder who had shot Emily? After watching the show, I have to say that right now I think that it might be Aiden that does the shooting. As much as she’s hurt him in the past, I don’t think that he would want to have anyone hurt her. I believe that he does the shooting in an attempt to save her from something. Perhaps Victoria is starting to get onto her and wanting to take her down so this way, Emily can work behind scenes. Who knows?
There has been a time jump, as this show loves to do. 6 months has passed since the season 2 finale. It’s still unclear if the world thinks that Jack is dead, but I would assume that they know he’s alive, but he did take off. He is obviously still mad at Emily for lying to him, despite him saying that he ‘understands’. Jack has a lot of pride and it would be out of character that he would be just so forgiving for what Emily did.
The show did certainly open the door to a lot of questions, which is exactly what this show needs. The writers of the show have promised fans that they would return back to roots of the story and not veer off like they did last season with the Initiative and Carrion. All I can say is: THANK GOD. It was way too much last season.
This show is certainly reminscent of the first season which I, for one, am excited for. A lot of questions have been created leading to a lot of open-ended problems that may or may not be resolved by the end of the season. The main ones being: will Jack really ever forgive Emily? Who shot Emily on that boat? Why does Aiden want to take down Emily and what happened between him and Daniel at end of Season 2?
Here’s a recap of the show:
The show opens up to Emily on a boat in her wedding dress. She is looking at someone and says ‘I’m sorry’ before getting shot 2 times and dropping into the water.
