Revenge hasn’t ever reached the same levels of juicy, well-crafted drama this season than it did in season one, and I’m rapidly losing interest in the show. There are so many things going on that I don’t care enough about. In the minor leagues, that’s Jack and the bar. In the major leagues, it’s the unfocused battle against Helen and the Initiative.
There was also an incredibly unsurprising “twist” that Nolan’s lover Padma is working for Helen. I’d be shocked if anyone didn’t see this coming. Unfortunately, her character was so bland and pointless that the only reason for her presence could be to betray Nolan.
I do like the idea of Conrad running for office, because his rise to power again could refocus Emily’s mission on taking down the Graysons.
The scenes with Emily and Victoria, as always, worked well. I need more of that on the regular in order to stay invested in this show. How do you guys feel about the season now that we’re in the latter half?
