I'd kinda like to see CCH Pounder join this cast if
Spoiler:
her character on Warehouse 13 is truly dead.

OMG this last episode was awesome, although damn ABC why you gotta be a tease, you could have at least shown the Tyler/Nolan kiss. To be fair it's been pretty chaste on the heteroside of sex scenes too, which is..weird for a nighttime soap.

Also weird I find myself liking Daniel even though he's totally a blank, for some reason both the actor/character are reminding of nothing so much as Jake Ryan. And in Emergency Incest Alert System news I then I heard a theory Daniel might be David's kid and Emanda's brother and BOOM instantly justified my like of him and her together! I like Jack, but I think things are more interesting if she's genuinely torn between Daniel/Jack, only to find out she's been diddling her brother. I'm not sold on the theory but it amuses me greatly.

I love that CCH Pounder is helping Emanda out, and that Amily iced her Frank problem. I also like finding out that Ashley admitted her social climber goals and Tyler and her bonded over that. I like when there aren't unnecessary secrets, and people actually reveal stuff to one another.

I think that the theory that seems more likely is that Charlotte is Amanda's sister, not Daniel, because the timing is right for Charlotte, and if Amanda and Daniel are about the same age, I'm not sure if that works out. Daniel is like a likable but boring puppy to me, he seems perfectly nice but not at all interesting or intelligent. Poor Daniel.

Yeah I think the theory is based purely on Victoria valuing Daniel *above* Charlotte (which we saw evidence of twice in that last ep), when she hates Conrad and still is hung up on David, so it makes more sense to value the child of the man she still loves over the child of the man she now loathes. And I'd like it a lot if David was cheating on Amanda's mother with Victoria, her idolization of him has to be tarnished and her revenge tainted eventually. I mean I'm cool with him NOT being her brother, but it's literally the only thing that I can see making Daniel interesting. Heh.

Yes, agreed, and this is why I find it so weird that she values Daniel so much over Charlotte!

Though if Charlotte is the accidental child of an affair she had to deny for years, from a man she had to ruin... I could see those mixed-up emotions leading to her pushing that child away.

OKay peeps, a friend of mine pointed out that Emily is always wearing primary colors. I was blown away by this and was trying hard to think what constant wearing of red, white and blue meant. My friend was theorizing that there was some kind of supergirl connection. But then last night she wore green. Argh. Any thoughts on the nature of Emily's wardrobe?

Also, I did not see the Nolan twist coming. I thought for sure the Jack/Amanda hard on he had was some creepy sublimation thing he had going for Amanda that would somehow go sour leading to his eventual betrayal. Now, it could still be sublimation...for the both of them. He does seem awfully keen on being Jack's bff!

It doesn't seem like Emanda to leave such an obvious hole in her plans...especially if the warden is in on it. Hmm, this is the first time I was a little dissapointed with the show. Other than that one little niggling issue, I am very very very much enjoying this show. It has now surpassed Gossip Girl as my fave trashy nighttime soap. There is no point during this show where I hit fast forward. Which is sadly, no longer the case for GG. Pretty people wearing pretty clothes making out. Always a winning formula in dreagoland!

I love this show so much... was holding my breath throughout the entire episode. So many "ooooh, shit!" moments!

I just want to come in here a moment and bitch because one of my roommates (who I hate, but that's besides the point) made fun of me when I professed my love for this show back when it first started, but what do I come home to last night? But her watching MY DVR-ed episodes of the show. She probably deleted them, not even realizing I was the one who set up the DVR. (Not a smart one, this roommate.)

But anyway.

I can't get over how hot Wechsler is. He was always the bright spot on Roswell but he is hot like FI-YUH on this. Damn.

I'm just here to voice my intense dislike for Declan. If he were played by a different actor, I think, I would be a bit more sympathetic. This guy just gets on my nerves. It could be the voice or the mannerisms or that extremely long neck. This is serious. It's made me de-lurk after 4 years of lurkage.

OMG! I didn't even realize that was the same actor.

Shouldn't Emily/Amanda taken care of Amanda/Emily a long time ago? That seems like a huge liability to have her out there stripping and maybe getting desperate. i mean I know they have this bond or whatever but still!

That IS serious. And so warranted! I hate that kid. He is the weakest link on the show by far.

No one was a excited about the whole Japan angle huh? That'd what I love abou this show. It's rolling along, being believable and then they throw in some, oh yeah, and she was trained in Japan on how to be a Ninja Assasin revenge seeker. It's straight out of Melrose place in levels of soap cheese but because the tone of the show is not Melrose-y, it weirdly works. Even though it shouldn't. Because, I mean think about it. There's melodrama and then there's going to Japan to study being a viper necause your dad told you to in a note that also says, but i wish you wouldnt follow this awesome path!"melodrama. It sounds stupid saying it out loud but when I was watching I laughed and was like, of course she did! Love it! And then I stage whispered, like I always do when I watch this show, REVENGE!

That's awesome. I'm going to start doing it too, if you don't mind, hee.

I'm still really really loving this show - and I was spoiled for the mentor, so it wasn't too surprisingly. I do think she's surprisingly... not as well planned as one would think (she still has Frank's wallet???). And I do think she's a bit unfair to the real Emily Thorne, but of course, the real one's batshit craziness is starting to come out...

And we noticed Nolan seeing Ashley walking into the pool house before asking Tyler for a kiss. Very beautifully planned.

I was laughing for like 10 minutes after the whole Japan thing was introduced. "To be among vipers you must become a viper." Love it. This show couldn't be better.

But wasn't the note from the Warden not her dad? I thought I saw her name on the stationery at the top.

Heh, I totally do that too.

I really like this show, but it is ABSURD. Emily is a terrible Revenge-Getter -- who leaves a Box of Secrets on her living room table, like, all the time?! And also has a tattoo on her wrist matching graffiti on her porch from Years Before? She is terrible at covering her tracks!

And RealEmily came cheap too -$500K?!?

The Japan thing is SO ridiculous and hilarious and AWESOME that it actually brought me back around to liking the show. I'm in the minority I think in that I think EVC is awful. She's got a grand total of 2 expressions and she's not very good at the fake nice one. She seriously has REVENGE!! (hee) on her face to the point I don't know why everyone isn't suspicious of her all the time.

Even more ridiculous is poor party-planning/maid/nurse Ashley. If Queen V had a dog, poor Ashley wouldn't have time for anything else.

Ha! I agree about EVC. She also looks about 10 years younger than everyone else who is supposed to be roughly her age.
And I don't get Ashley. At all. If she wants to be rich/part of society, why the hell was she wasting her time with dopey, annoying Tyler? Go after Conrad! That'd kill Victoria!

Hee that is actually one of my favorite parts, Emanda's deault tight little butter wouldn't melt smile, there is a very large part of me rooting for Victoria in that battle of the beyotches. My feeling on this show is as long as Nolan walks around dressing and acting ridiculous I will remain entertained.

I just realized the guy who plays Tyler was Michael J. Fox in another life, only now he's working The Secret of My Gay Hooker Success.

I am totally rooting for Victoria despite my Madeline Stowe hate because I think Amanda's revenge plots at least so far have been pretty lame. All the really interesting shit that's happened--BadActress Amber Valetta FALLING OFF A BUILDING and ending up in a coma; Tyler's sneaky bastardry; RealEmily--have had nothing to do with Amanda's revenge plotting, at least directly. Plus I really like Daniel and I want him to come out of this ok. (BTW, how far away from the engagement party are we?)

Nolan cracks me up, but I want to know how he changed from the cool mysterious guy that picked Amanda up from juvie to the flamboyant crackpot he is now.

Man, at the beginning of this show I found Nolan useless and irritating, how times have changed! He is now totally my favorite character on the show. I love that he made Tyler kiss him when he saw Ashley coming.

I wish this whole change in Ashley from being Emily's bff to her frenemy was a little better set up, but that's okay, at least it makes Ashley a little more interesting.

Occasionally I start feeling for Victoria, but then they have a flashback of her screwing over Amanda's poor dad, and then boom, I'm on Emily's side again. But those two are delicious together, especially since Victoria seems to have only one dress, just in many different colors. I reallllllly hope that they take Tyler down, though, because I hate that guy.

When I saw that Victoria had Amanda forcibly and fraudulently institutionalized and mind-tortured by that shrink? That earned my everlasting hatred. Now THAT is some sick shit right there.

Love this show!

OK I totally must have zoned out on that because I don't remember that at all. That is some sick shit, so I can go back to comfortably hating Victoria/Madeline Stowe again. But I still can't say I'm actively rooting for Amanda either.
