Me too. It's one of my favorite new shows. What I don't quite get is Emily/Amanda being so adamant about involving Nolan in her plans? There are a whole lot of people to plot revenge against, why not accept help in taking them down?

I'm not sure about that either! Especially since he clearly is so helpful. I started out the season not liking him, but now I really do -- I was surprised by how worried I was about him when I realized that he would be heading to Lydia's apartment right after she was killed, and could get blamed for it.

I love him too. I think she just has trust issues and is a loner, that's about it.

Well, when it comes to conning people which is what she's doing I always think of The Grifter's line about 'no partners', two grifters can't ever really trust each other.

It interesting in light over her voiceover about embracing her guilt, yet I think she might be pushing Nolan away so hard because he knows who she really is. It's easier to be Emily and do this to her enemies, Emily is guilty, and Amanda can walk away innocent. But Nolan complicates that, and she neither wants or needs complications.

Its similar in a way to how she is with Jack. In the sense that shes both drawn to him but keeps a lot of distance. Because he knew Amanda.

Speaking of all the things I love about this show, I love how neither him or Daniel is presented as a bad guy. Daniel is a nice guy trying to be better and stuck with crazy family, and Jack doesn't do the stereotypical "townie guy option" thing of freaking out about Daniel getting his annoying brother out of jail. Instead he just thanks him sincerely and hires him. Its a more interesting option.

I totally laughed though at Lydia's slo mo fall.

I just wish she would stop doing the back and forth "I DON'T WANT YOUR HELP" "TAKE MY HELP" "OKAY FINE, I'LL TAKE YOUR HELP BUT I'M NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT" thing with Nolan. I get the loner thing, but at this point he's the only person who knows what she's doing and who is on her side, and sometimes a girl needs some help with all of her Revenge!

Totally agree about Jack not being the typical townie, I'm glad they're not going that route.

They either did some terrible makeup on purpose on the actress who plays Lydia, or that actress needs to never work with that makeup person again, because she looked awful in this episode with the huge deep set eyes and the redness, etc.

I'm hoping it was just the make up person because that's Amber Valetta and she is unbelievably gorgeous in real life.

She was my first girl crush as a child because she looked like fashion model barbie. She really can't act though.

I think Nolan will become her uber nemesis after this and will work against her.

I think Emily doesn't want a partner because she doesn't ever want to hear, "Maybe we should reconsider doing this to this particular person". It's much easier to stay the course if she doesn't have anyone to dissuade her.

Yikes, SERIOUSLY.

I'm halfway through this week's episode and literally just went "OHHHHHH SHIT" out loud when Lydia found EmAnda in that photograph. Although I did giggle a little when she just HAPPENED to have a magnifying glass sitting on her desk.

This show is like crack. We call it "Vendetta!", after Sideshow Bob's son in that Simpsons ep. set in Italy. (Which leads to us yelling "Vendetta! Vendetta por mi papa!" at random points during the show.)
No one is ever going to go to a party at the Grayson's again. Especially not when there's a/v involved, heh.
And the back and forth with Nolan is really irritating, but I like the idea of him becoming her nemesis. I read an article somewhere that talked about the flow of the season (spoiler-y, I guess)
Spoiler:
the murder part will wrap up by episode 13, and then the second half of the season will be the trial.
I'm not convinced that Daniel is the victim, though, what with CreepyRoommate stealing his phone, maybe it's him whose dead on the beach?
But I still wanna know how the hell that dog is alive. And so frisky! Because he'd have to be at least 15, right?

Now I want to start watching again just so I can do that, too.

Or CreepyRoommate killed Daniel after he rejected his romantic overtures.

And I've said this every damn time the dog shows up.

I had a dog about that size live til she was almost 20, but she was not that frisky (more like very arthritic) for all of her teen years. But yeah, the dog doesn't quite work.

I like the theory that maybe it wasn't Daniel who was shot. Though if it WAS him, I predict Emily is forced into some kind of unholy alliance with Victoria to revenge that. I do like watching a show with a clearly well pre-planned plot that seems to pay off what it sets up. Maybe I will watch it consistently for more than a season, LOST.

The dog thing doesn't work at all, but I choose to ignore that, just like I choose to ignore how the timeline was also totally off with Nolan in Lydia's apartment (seriously, for him to be in there for a few minutes before realizing that there was a body outside means that he would have had to be in the building before the body fell, in which case how did he not see the bad security guy run out, etc.).

I don't think Nolan is going to be Emily/Amanda's nemesis, because I think he takes the mission from her dead dad to help her and take care of her seriously. That creepy roommate who is living off his friends is totally going to be the nemesis, but I hope Em/Am gets him too.

I've read the spoilers about how the second half of the season is, and it makes me a little sad, because I just want her to keep going on getting REVENGE on different people forever.

Poor Jack! I knew that she would reject him, but I was hoping that she would indicate in some way that she was Amanda. Roomie as a Talented Mr. Ripley is a great twist to the story.

As usual Nolan continues to make me wonder about his motives. He's by far my favorite character.

Me too! I'm actually sad when the episode ends, because it means I have to wait a week. I love this show so much.
Also, last night we were watching the latest episode, and my husband pointed out that the younger brother (Declan) looks kind of like a young Ralph Macchio. And since he can never remember anyone's name, he is now "Daniel LaRusso" in our house.
Oh! And what the hell was Tyler thinking when he banged his forehead against the pole? No one punches you in the forehead! Daniel totally would have popped him in the jaw or the nose. Duh.
I love how ridiculous this show is.

Poor Frank, going out like a punk! And CCH Pounder! She makes every show better. Though, really, they should have swapped out the photos in the files to keep up the lie.

Two weeks? Damn country music awards. Just give everything to Taylor Swift and be done!! Don't bump my stories!!!!!

Why is it that I let out a gleeful shout of "OH NO SHE DIDN'T" in the last ten minutes of every episode? This time it was about the old Amanda Clark luring Frank out so she could smash his head in. This show is awesome. And Nolan seduced our little Tyler and videotaped it! LOVE. Could not love more!

That was amazing.

Nolan said he was a Kinsey 3 right? Then I want him to hook up with Ashley (who he previously expressed interest in), and have it revealed that he slept with her then boyfriend. More DRAMA!

Also Original Emily looked eerily like Dianna Agron in that stripper get up.

I was surprised at how "easy" it was for Frank to get access to the files. It is a juvenile detention facility. Basically a low security prison. And he just walked right in. I was expecting for Emily planning for him to get to the file, and would reveal something in her favor. I was surprised that they went with it.
