Revenge Season 3 Episode 1 Review: Jack Porter's Ultimatum, Patrick Harper's Abs, and Top 5 Questions [PHOTOS]
Revenge Season 3 Episode 1 ("Fear") aired Sunday (Sept. 29) and finally put an end to Carrion and the Initiative. Jack Porter (Nick Wechsler) gives Emily an ultimatum, which troubles some viewers: Will he be doing this anti-revenger act every episode?
Emily Thorne aka the real Amanda Clark (Emily VanCamp) gets shot in Revenge Season 3, Episode 1. But viewers will have to keep guessing who the shooter is. Conrad Grayson (Henry Czerny) is Fear's main victim, losing his political power over a fake diagnose. Patrick Harper's (Justin Hartley) abs will be one of the top things to anticipate seeing every episode this year.
Spoiler Alert: This review contains spoilers for those who haven't seen the Revenge Season 3 premiere episode.
Here are some questions among the viewers struck by the latest episode of Emily Thorne chronicles:
1.) Is Jack Porter (Nick Wechsler) telling Emily the truth when he pulls back from Emily? In what many viewers thought to be a very passionate Jack and Emily K-I-S-S-I-N-G moment, Jack makes a declaration. It could be for self-preservation. It may have something to do with fatherhood. But Jack couldn't possibly be so over Emily just like that.
"He's angry. He's got a lot of anger and basically nowhere to aim it, well except at Emily," Nick Wechsler had earlier told ontheredcarpet.com during a Revenge Season 3 premiere spoilers interview.
2.) What is Aiden Mathis (Barry Sloane) up to? Another one of Emily's loves is leaving her team, sort of. Sloane had said in another interview that Aiden would be sleeping with the enemy. Viewers have seen the depth and breadth of Aiden's love for Emily, so he may just be fast tracking her much needed revenge. (Good to see his alive, though. The Revenge Season 2 finale was not very promising for him.)
3.) Will Emily Thorne use Patrick Harper against Queen V? Victoria Grayson may be many evil things, but this woman loves her children. Pitting her long lost son against her will be quite devastating. Conrad's fake Huntington's disease is a huge leap, but nowhere near enough for Emily.
4.) Who shot Emily Thorne? There will probably be several episodes before the show answers this question. It couldn't be Jack Porter, could it? Emily seems genuinely sorry before she's shot at.
5.) Is this the last season of Revenge? After two full seasons, many viewers are getting impatient. Is this the last chapter in Emily Thorne's systematic acts of vengeance? Perhaps it will depend on this year's ratings. So fans better tune in next week to keep the show afloat.
In Australia, Seven has yet to announce if it would fast track Revenge Season 3. Many Aussies are convinced it's a no, but still hoping they won't wait too long for Emily Thorne's next moves. Check out the slideshow for some "revenger" fandom posts on Tumblr.
