‘Revenge’ Season Finale Recap: Terrorism Hits The Hamptons and Emily Plays Her Most Major Card

I went into the second season finale of ABC’s Revenge with a whole lot of questions.

What was the purpose of wiping New York’s power out? Was Victoria’s (Madeleine Stowe) long-lost first-born secretly lurking around the Hamptons even though he had been paid handsomely to stay away? What would Aiden (Barry Sloane) do now…

‘Revenge’ Recap: Takeda Turns and ‘Revolution’ finally hits the Hamptons

With only one episode* left of ABC’s Revenge, the show sure is taking its sweet time diving into the juicy bits of Emily’s (Emily VanCamp)– and now Jack (Nick Wechsler), Nolan (Gabriel Mann), and Aiden’s (Barry Sloane)– titular plans. Instead, the antepenultimate episode spent way too much time focusing on Emily and Daniel’s (Josh Bowman)…

‘Revenge’ Recap: Abortion/Abandonment Drama and Hacker Hoopla

So much time has elapsed since ABC’s Revenge was last on-air with a new season two episode that when discussion around Padma (Dilshad Vadsaria) resumed in tonight’s “Identity,” I was like, “Her!?” I was hoping we had heard the last about her, when Nolan (Gabriel Mann) was so distraught she had “joined her father” and…

‘Revenge’ Recap: The Masks We Hide Behind

Last week’s Revenge on ABC dropped a bombshell into our laps by revealing that Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) had another son that she gave up for adoption. Doing the math from her then age of sixteen or now, it seemed clear he was not someone who had been already lurking in plain sight in the Hamptons,…

‘Revenge’ Recap: Fires And Foster Care Secrets

ABC’s Revenge took a bit of a detour tonight as Emily (Emily VanCamp) and her newly re-surfaced foster brother Eli (Collins Pennie) decided to take action against their former foster mother who milked the state out of chunks of cash for taking in these waywards, only to abuse them and steal from them.

‘Revenge’ Recap: Fire, Flashbacks And Fake Charity

After Amanda’s foster brother Eli (Collins Pennie) showed up at the very tail end of last week’s Revenge on ABC, I was hoping above all hope that the show wouldn’t drag out another reveal with him.

In all honesty, I was expecting it to be that he wasn’t who he claimed; he was…

‘Revenge’ Recap: Amanda’s Death Pushes A Few To Their Limits

Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) has had a rough few days on ABC’s Revenge. First, she had to watch her childhood love Jack (Nick Wechsler) marry her best friend who also happened to be posing as her, Amanda (Margarita Levieva), and then she had to bury said best friend at sea. That should be enough for…

‘Teen Wolf’ Cast Previews 5 Things To Expect On Season 3

Last we left Scott (Tyler Posey), Stiles (Dylan O’Brien), Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) and the rest of MTV’s Teen Wolf  crew, things were not looking so great. Scott and Allison (Crystal M. Reed) had broken up; Jackson (Colton Haynes) had turned from one supernatural being into another, and Derek’s pack was left alone in the woods, being…

‘Cult’ Star Matt Davis Breaks Down His New Series

The CW’s newest midseason drama, Cult, takes a stab at obsessive fandoms, a “show within a show,” and even the online world of investigative journalism.

“The premise is my brother’s gone missing in this cult, and it has something to do with this television show that’s called ‘Cult,’ as well,” star Matt Davis told Celebuzz

‘Revenge’ Recap: Another Hamptons Day, Another Death… Or Two

The looming murder on ABC’s Revenge — something that was glimpsed on the first episode of the season but only revealed with the most recent episode, “Sacrifice” — has been pretty much the only thing I have been interested in all season. Well, that and getting to know Aiden (Barry Sloane). So, it felt like a long time…

‘Carrie Diaries’ Creator Talks Sex And The Series

The CW’s The Carrie Diaries thrust its main character (AnnaSophia Robb) into a relationship with Sebastian (Austin Butler) on only the second episode. But things cooled off before they even really got started, especially for a show set in high school, the time in every young girl’s life that serious questions and concerns start to…

‘Revenge’ Recap: It’s Not A Hamptons Wedding Without A Murder, Too

You know, for an episode entitled “Union,” ABC’s Revenge sure took its sweet time actually getting to Jack (Nick Wechsler) and Amanda’s (Margarita Levieva) wedding.

And even when it finally showed the beachfront ceremony, officiated by none other than Nolan Ross (Gabriel Mann), the sweet and sentimental moments were cut short — probably…

Watch: ‘Revenge’ Plans an Explosive Honeymoon for Jack

If there’s one thing ABC’s Revenge is known for, it’s throwing lavish, drama-filled parties. It’s not enough for the Hamptons’ finest to get decked out in their finest, the showstoppers are the gunshots or police interference, not the gowns. But maybe that’s just when the Graysons are involved. When it’s an “average person’s” special day,…

‘Supernatural’ Recap: Embracing Legacies and Fighting Nazis

“A Jew, two Genti and a Golem walk into a bar” — how many do you think should make it out alive?

That should have been the joke or at least the line of the episode when The CW’s Supernatural took on Nazis. After all, a Golem is basically just a clay creature…

All season long on The CW’s Supernatural, Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) have been on a mission to close the gates of hell forever by “decoding” special tablets with the word of God on them.

‘Carrie Diaries’ Star Brendan Dooling Previews Walt’s ‘Path of Self-Discovery’

The CW’s The Carrie Diaries has never really made it a secret that Walt is gay. But, just because the audience, and now Carrie (AnnaSophia Robb), may be predisposed to thinking Walt is gay does not mean the character himself will immediately undergo the revelation himself.

“He doesn’t know [that he’s gay], and…
