Penance is a sacrifice, a voluntary punishment to show remorse for a sin. The more grievous the sin, the greater the self inflicted suffering. For some the ultimate penance is death. But for others, it is simply a means to an end.
If we chose to, we can live in a world of comforting illusions. We can allow ourselves to be deceived by false realities. Or we can use them to hide our true intentions.
Destiny to believe that a life was meant for a single purpose, one must also believe in a common fate… father to daughter, brother to sister, mother to child, blood ties can be as unyielding as they are eternal. But it is our bonds of choice that truly light the road we travel: love versus hatred, loyalty against betrayal.A person’s true destiny can only be revealed at the end of his journey…
and the story I have to tell, is far from over…
In every life there comes a day of reckoning, a time when unsettled scores demand their retribution, and our own lies and transgressions are finally laid bare.
ABC promised a shocking finale, and I can now safely say they made good on that claim.
They say grief occurs in five stages. First there’s denial, followed by anger. Then comes bargaining, depression, and acceptance. But grief is a merciless master. Just when you think you’re free, you realize you never stood a chance.
What do you get when you cross Revenge with Inception? Legacy.
(Well if you toss out the dreaming part). The majority of tonight’s episode, as publicized, was told in a flashback to New Years 2002 when Emanda (still Amanda) catered the Grayson’s lavished event. However there were flashbacks within the flashback giving the story three layers of time, intertwined only by the similar setting, New Years at Grayson Manor.
Simply put, the episode was brilliant. One of the best so far.
As much as I love Revenge, writing the reviews each week is quite difficult. It takes me a little while to stop flailing over the episode and compose my thoughts. The show just kills my brain with it’s drama and scandals. I get chills and can feel my heartbeat change thought the episodes. I am honestly impressed week after week, as the show continues to grow in ways I never suspected originally. The creators and writers of this show are brilliant. I don’t think I could praise them enough for the work they’ve done. Similarly the show would not be anything without the talented cast and crew that make each episode come alive, off the page. Revenge should inspire other television series to strive for more, to never stop pushing the story forward, to never stop short of excellence.
In tonight’s all new episode entitled, “Absolution,” everyone is on edge about Daniel’s release from prison. The media continues to target him as one of the privileged 1% (how well real life fit into the show’s storyline), prompting Daniel to take action. Daniel agrees to sit down and tell his side of things. Unfortunately things don’t go entirely as planned (at least not how Emanda hoped they would go).
It has been far too long since the last episode of ABC’s hit Revenge. “Doubt” revitalized the series after its absence giving fans a lot to think about as they try to uncover what will happen next, and who will be the next victim or even death.
What a thrill ride the past six months have been. I may have had some concern’s about Revenge’s ability to keep the story interesting and exciting in the beginning, but I am happy to admit that those doubts have been proven wrong countless times over. “Chaos” may be one of the best, most exhilarating episode’s of the series yet.
If you’re not watching Revenge, I recommend checking out the pilot online. The show is truly addicting and some of the best television I’ve seen in years. The show never disappoints.
It has been three long weeks since Revenge last aired a new episode, but the wait is finally over. (Thank God! Revenge is too good to go without!)
The freshman hit drama returned with its 14th episode “Perception.” While the episode was fantastic as always, my eyes are set on next week’s game changing episode. Viewers are finally going to be shown what really happened during the engagement party, in the very first scene of the series. Who died? Who killed them? And who will stand trial for the death?
The anticipation is killing me!
