Did viewers really expect anything less from ABC? Of course there was going to be another twist and cliffhanger. Did anyone really think this was the last time we would see Emily Thorne in the Hampton's?
The beginning of the episode revealed the plan for the family outing where Emily would eventually be shot. Once we hear the plan, viewers already question how much her plan is messed up. Obviously from the season opener, Emily does not jump off of the boat after firing the gun. It is clear that she is surprised by whoever it is that shoots her. Throughout the episode viewers wonder what will go wrong and if her plan will work.
When we get to the wedding itself the suspense builds as we slowly take the steps toward the final event of the fall season. Emily and Charlotte share a special moment before Aiden enters to see Emily. They share a brief moment before the fake wedding begins. Some viewers are beginning to really look forward to Emily and Aiden finally having the chance to truly be together and be themselves. Aiden is one of the only people in the world who really knows who Emily is.
On the boat, Aiden helps prepare for Emily's fake death. He takes care of Victoria just in time for Emily to pull the trigger and jump off of the boat when Daniel rounds the corner. He is visibly distraught from just finding out that Sarah tried to kill herself. He had just overheard Emily and Victoria talking about Emily playing the family. Daniel reaches for the gun and shoots Emily twice. Of course, viewers should have seen this coming the second Aiden points out the gun to Emily. The fact that Emily did not pick the gun up then and there, foreshadowed to someone else pulling the trigger, as well as the fact that in the season opener we know Emily does not pull the trigger.
Aiden and Jack search for Emily on the beach when the bloody wedding gown washes up on the shoreline. Not only does this prove that Jack is second guessing his decision to ask Emily to leave for good, but also proves that no matter what she has put Jack through, he still loves Emily in his heart.
We do not have to wait long for another episode thank goodness. As soon as we are done with the holiday season "Revenge" will return shortly after the new year to reveal some new surprises. Emily has lost her memory, but is it real or faked? Will she remember David Clarke and her love for Aiden? Suddenly the future is unclear for Emily Thorne and the direction of the show. There are surly many more surprises ahead.
