What Did You Think Of The Season Three Premiere Of REVENGE?

Revenge premiered its third season on Sunday night, and there was plenty of action that happened off-camera as there was on-camera for the characters in this re-anchored ABC primetime drama series.

Here is what was revealed in-story:  Charlotte (Christa B. Allen)  lost her and Declan’s baby, and  it was never stated how, but it was clarified in a new interview with TV Line by showrunner Sunil Nayar that it was from a miscarriage.

Elsewhere, Jack (Nick Wechsler) had gone away out of town for months after the revelation that Emily (Emily VanCamp) was the real Amanda Clarke.  After Amanda learns Jack just got back to town, she goes and visits him at his bar.  While there, Jack admits he understands her motive to get back at the people that took away her father, because of his own relationship with his young son  When the two goes in for a kiss, Jack eventually pushes Amanda away and tells her she has till end of the summer to seek her revenge on the Graysons, and then get out of town, or, he will blow the whistle on who she really is, and he wants nothing more to do with her.

As for Conrad (Henry Czerny)passing out during his speech, and his diagnosis of Huntington’s Disease which forced him to resign as governor, we learn the whole thing was set up by Emily (AKA Amanda)!   She drugged Conrad!  Sunil Nayar also told TV Line about this story decision, “Part of it was we didn’t want to trap Conrad in Albany all season. But we also wanted to set up a storyline where we see how wonderful Emily is at her takedowns. He didn’t just get taken out of the governorship — he believes he has [Huntington’s] disease. This was a bit of a nod to the pilot where she did the same thing to Conrad, but we took it a step further and made sure it had psychological and physical ramifications that will cause him to examine who he is and who he wants to be. So, in tandem with bringing him back to the Hamptons, where we certainly wanted him, we wanted to make sure that we embarked on a storyline that allowed us to get to know this man a little better that we have.”

Justin Hartley’s debuted as Patrick.  After arriving at the Hamptons after spending several months hanging out with his mother, Victoria (Madeleine Stowe), Charlotte threatens him.   Next thing you know, Patrick is packing his bags and says goodbye to his mother again.  Victoria is clearly upset!  But clearly he is coming back.   But what is the real story there?

Ashley Madekwe (Ashley)exit was precipitated by first a blackmail attempt on Emily, only Emily turned the tables on her and “teamed” up with Victoria, and they had Ashley board a plane and get out of dodge!

Finally, at the end of the episode it was Barry Sloane as Aiden who showed up on Victoria Grayson’s doorstep willing and able to work with her to bring down Emily! Now, as to if Aiden’s true intentions are to double cross Victoria to help Emily, Sunil Nayar told TV Line:  “He will state at the beginning of Episode 2 exactly what his opinions are about Emily, and you will see what he’s planning to do.”

So when you look at all that happened on last’s night episode, and the fact that the opening scene was Emily getting shot in her wedding dress, already several leading candidates come to mind who might want her dead!

It was bland and boring except for one particular scene; SHIRTLESS PATRICK! Hopefully the next epi will bring some excitement, if not, I’m done.

Well done as usual!! I love the way they set up the plotlines on this show and make it so you can’t wait for the next episode!!

Hoping Emily being shot doesn’t mean the demise of Emily Van Camp from the series. She is the essential ingredient in the Revenge!

It certainly set some things in motion for season three. Can’t wait to see what unfolds!

Was a promising start to getting back to the true heart of “Revenge” ala Season One….LOVED Nolan….glad to see Mr. Ross once again consorting as chief in cahoots with Ems, they are THE team, aren’t they? Also enjoyed Victoria and her boy, “Patrick,”….that’s going to be some pair, something tells me….as in the apple didn’t fall far from the tree! As for his so far yet clueless sister, Charlotte, about the only thing to be said is that those “Bangs From Hell” really suit her!!! Definitely a step up in her style stakes! Other than those few takeaway observations, not much else to say…Jack is still a bore, Conrad remains evil to the core and Daniel is a complete snore….Oh, that new French chick is ugly as sin, and it was fabulous to see them FINALLY send off that major annoyance otherwise known as “Ashley”…will NOT miss her smug mug one iota…though I fear she may be back down the road…..Enough said!

I am pleased. Seems last season’s road did set up problems that would have derailed REVENGE, i.e. Governor Conrad in Albany. The drama that closed season 2 seemed to rattle everyone enough to allow some new beginnings and refresh neglected relationships and tones. Hooray for the end of The Initiative and Carrion. Those espionage plot devices were confusing and took away from the humanity and relationships of REVENGE. I know ratings were down fro the season premiere and I hop REVENGErs who tuned out late last season will return. Things are looking up in the Hamptons!

Still confusing and entirely too rushed in the plot development. I can’t get over how Charlotte didn’t bat an eye when Patrick told her that he’s her brother.

It was different… but good. Love that Emily/Amanda is still so close to Nolan and I hope that will not change. Based on what she said when being shot it could be him…truly hope not!!! I think who shot her is either Daniel or Aiden. Looks to be a great seaon… truly glad the initiative looks to be gone. Her revenge against the Graysons should be enough to carry the season. Please let Nolan be by her side the whole season and not turn on her.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
