Emily: “From the moment we’re born, we drawn to form a union with others, an abiding drive to connect, to love, to belong. In a perfect union, we find the strength we cannot find in ourselves, but the strength of the union cannot be known until it is tested.”
There’s nothing really on the revengenda for Emily this week. Instead she is focused on others. She is concerned about Aiden, and keeping an eye out on Nolan's Padma situation. Emily reveals a good bit of her feelings in this episode. She talks about what drives her on her mission. Usually Emily is very reserved when it comes to her emotions, and so it is great to see her more vulnerable. The writers are reminding viewers why people should be on Emily’s side. She has done some not so nice things, and so to dig back into more of the Amanda Clarke part of Emily is fantastic. Did you love Emily in this episode?
Nolan decides to go against his and Emily’s better judgment and trust Padma enough to ask for her side of the story. Right now it’s hard to decide what to make of things. It sort of weakens the excitement of the Padma storyline by giving her an out like that, but it makes sense that the initiative would use her family members to get to her. Maybe this will mean some awesome teaming up action, and it would be great if Emily was a part of whatever Nolan and Padma plan. Did Nolan make the right call?
Here are quick thoughts on elsewhere in the episode. Amanda has to go into Emily’s infinity box of tricks to threaten Conrad into submission. This could have serious repercussions for Emily. Amanda basically showed a good bit of Emily’s cards. In other Grayson drama, Victoria gathers proof of how serious Helen and the initiative are. It’s a little weird that it took her this long to go to this option, especially since after seeing the proof, Daniel appears to be instantly on the same page. Things just happen a little too easily in terms of Conrad backing down and Daniel jumping on board. What did you think of all the Grayson drama?
