REVENGE: Emily Brings Down Conrad! Emily VanCamp and Henry Czerny Deliver Top Notch Performances!

It was the best episode of the season thus far on last night’s airing of ABC’s Revenge, but there is still one more spine-tingling episode left of season three when the season finale happens this coming Sunday!

For now, after the episode revealed itself with so many twists and turns and character calculations, we hoped the episode would continue on and on!

It was Charlotte’s kidnapping which was the “impetus” (also named the title of the episode) to finally getting Conrad (Henry Czerny) to admit all he had done including: the bombing of flight 197, framing David Clarke for it, and becoming involved with a group of terrorists, but not before he tells Charlotte (Christa B. Allen) who has just returned from her “kidnapping” at the hands of Emily (Emily VanCamp) and Aiden (Barry Sloane), that she is an “ungrateful bastard!”  He then threatens to eliminate her like he did Amanda, David, and a plane full of passengers!

Emily and Nolan (Gabriel Mann) were one step ahead of Conrad, and an unknowing Charlotte was wearing a transmitter that co-opted the signal to the press conference that Emily and Aiden, as the kidnappers, insisted Conrad and Victoria have to admit their crimes, if they wanted to see Charlotte back alive and well.  However, that set-up allowed Emily and Nolan to broadcast Conrad’s entire tirade on live TV!   And with that,  and finally, Emily in an emotional moment with Nolan, realized she took down her man.  She got her revenge on one half of the duo responsible for destroying her father!

Kudos have to go to Emily VanCamp for the final moments where Emily comes to realize she got some payback … welling up with tears of joy mixed with anger, mixed with exhaustion from the long fight she has fought.   Henry Czerny was masterful in his confession scene to Charlotte with rage galore and showing no mercy for his sins!

There is so much more to the story, but as the episode concluded we learned that David’s ring has shown up via Jack (Nick Wechsler).  Could he be alive after all?  And Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) is on to Emily!  She is figuring out she is the real Amanda Clarke! And Emily is hell bent on bringing Victoria to her knees!

Watch the pivotal scene from last night’s Revenge, where Emily finally nabs Conrad! Then, let us know what did you think of the moment?  The performances?  What do you think will happen next on the season finale, where we already have been teased someone will die!

Awesome episode!!! I sure hope it gets renewed for another season. This show has me on the edge of my seat every single week!

I was glad to see Emily take down Conrad but if her father is still alive maybe he wasn’t as innocent as we thought he was.Emily wanted revenge for her father but it could be interesting to see how she reacts if it turns out her father wasn’t entirely innocent.Which meant everything she did and all the risks she took was for nothing.

Her father is dead. Victoria and the new male character…forgot his name…planted evidence to make Emily think otherwise.

It was a bloody spectacular episode. Amazing acting on all parts. Fantastic writing.

Can’t wait for next week’s final episode.

Great episode..Twist and turns all along the way..Finally Emily gets some revenge but for how long can you keep Conrad down..I am sure ABC will renew the show since its doing some comic book with the character of Emily/Amanda even though the ratings have stumble of late.

Fantastic episode; can’t wait for the finale!!

I’m positive it will leave us wanting more, and more and more!!

It was great!!!
Only one more episode 🙁
I hope it is renewed..

Agreed the episode was really good. But, I am ready for the story to come to resolution….. don’t know how they transition to another Revenge experience. With a new cast? A new cast member becoming the protagonist in a different storyline? That would be interesting maybe. But this one needs to finish.

AB SO LUTE LY fantastic episode. The last few weeks have been riveting and the acting stupendous. Henry Czerni (Conrad) blew it out of the water! Excellent/brilliant performance!

Unfortunately, as some of us already discussed on a previous post, I think the next person to do a swan song is Aidan…if it’s true that he’s signed on to his own series. Shame…I like him.

Great show!

Tonya Lee Williams Says She Won’t Ever Be Coming Back to The Young and the Restless

It’s a different time in her life and she is in a different place, but Tonya Lee Williams (ex-Olivia Barber) addressed being asked back to reprise her signature soap opera role on CBS’ The Young and the Restless.

Tonya told Soaps In Depth the last time the soap reached out to her to reprise Olivia was for its 50th anniversary, “It it would have been lovely to do but I could not imagine doing the role. It takes a lot for me as an actor. You don’t just turn up and start reading a script. I don’t know how to explain it … I trained as an actor. I go through a lot of process into who that character is. And that character was someone from 20 years ago.”

Williams’ Y&R run Williams began back in 1990 and went through 2005. She later returned in 2007 making some appearances in the several years that followed. However, the last time anyone had an Olivia sighting was back in February of 2012 for Cane and Lily’s wedding.

She qualified that she left the show on “great terms,” adding, “I absolutely love the show. It has nothing to do with the show. But I try to explain it like this: Have you ever dated someone for a long time and you don’t want to date them anymore? And you have broken up with them and like, 10, 15 years have passed and people are saying, ‘Would you go back with that guy?’ I’m like, ‘No.’ Because you’re a different person now.”

Currently, Williams is the executive and artistic director for the Reelworld Film Festival. An organization she founded in 2001. Held in Toronto, the film festival features talent from ethnically diverse communities.

So, would you have liked to have seen the character of Olivia show back on Y&R? Perhaps, helping a patient in need since she is a doctor or speaking with/being involved with the Winters family in some capacity? Comment below.

Ron Carlivati Reveals When Days of our Lives Episodes From His Head Writing Regime Resume Streaming

Days of our Lives viewers have not been watching material from head writer Ron Carlivati and his writing team for many months. Well, things are about to change.

Circle this Friday, May 31st when the first new script from Carlivati and company will stream on the Peacock soap opera. If you recall, Carlivati had to step away from the writing gig at DAYS due to the writer’s strike, but because the soap tapes at least seven months ahead of air, it is only now that fans will see how the stories shift or finish out that were started by Carlivati.

According to Ron’s conversation with TV Insider, when Carlivati and his team resumed writing the show in late October of 2023, the stories were already written well into 2024. Carlivati explained, “For me, as of us talking right now, the (replacement writers’ material) is still airing, so that has been very tough. I’m just very anxious and eager for our stuff to start airing again.”

Ron explained before the writer’s strike, he and his scribes had written up through the 2023 Thanksgiving episodes. Speaking on how the replacement writers tried to handle stepping in for the regular team, Ron expressed, “I think what they tried to do was move things slowly in the hopes that the strike would end and respect where my storylines were so that I could play them off when we came back. Unfortunately, the strike dragged on, so I understand that the show needed to make story decisions.”

The award-winning writer made clear that, “from January to May (2024), those were not my stories. I had nothing to do with those.”

Having lived through a writer’s strike before (when he was at One Life to Live in 2008), Carlivati explained how he dealt with coming back and adjusting the stories including that the plan was to, “blow things up, jettison anything that I did not like, and get back to a show that I understand and can enjoy and tell. ”

Look for a Carlivati-style ‘wink-wink’ on Friday’s episode. As he puts it, “I did want to make it clear that this was the line of demarcation, that the writers were back and there was a change happening. We have a little nod or two to what was going on in the first day and I think it will be very obvious and clear to the savvy viewer. Luckily, story-wise, certain things were coming to a head already.”

Stay tuned for how Ron resolves a Sloan and Nicole showdown, how Eric will find out he is Jude’s true baby daddy, what happens when the new Gabi returns from Salem from out of the slammer, the Maggie/Konstantin wedding, payback time for Theresa and more.

In addition, and as previously reported, when Carlivati returned, he crafted the series 15,000th episode which is set to air in early December, and will also pay tribute to the late Bill Hayes with the passing of his on-screen beloved character, Doug Williams.

So, glad to know Ron and his team’s material will start to reveal itself this Friday and moving forward on DAYS? Comment below.
