Revenge, Season 2, Episode 10, “Power”
Written by Joe Fazzio
Directed by Roger Kumble
Airs Sundays at 9 pm (ET) on ABC

“The greater the power, the greater the potential for abuse”. Revenge returned this Sunday with a fun, crackling episode that takes us closer and closer finding answers for the season’s big mystery. Just when I thought the show was getting a little tired, Victoria (Madeline Stowe) and Emily (Emily Van Camp) team up.

I have such a love/hate relationship with Daniel. At the beginning of this season he was poised to become more than a “petulant, angry” chess piece; here he becomes a pawn for the Initiative. But if this whole storyline enables Emily and Victoria to join forces, then more power to the writers. Each woman might have their own agenda, but who doesn’t on this show? And watching these two tough, conniving characters work together rather than try to take each other down is a change I didn’t expect to like so much.

The big question of the night: When exactly did Amanda become the reasonable one in the Revenge world? With Jack’s arrest, for the first time in a long time, I actually care what happens with the whole Evil Drug Dealing Brothers vs. Jack storyline. I can’t help but feel bad that the only person who could get Jack out of trouble is Declan, who hasn’t exactly shown the best judgment in the past.


Seeing Aidan “in the deep end” with Helen, the Initiative, and dragging our precious Nolan into the fold was a cool way of giving him an even bigger stake in the entire Revenge story. I can’t shake the feeling that his sister’s disappearance is going to somehow factor into the story as a whole this season. Aidan’s growing on me more and more. I was skeptical at first but it’s a breath of fresh air to see Emily have a male counterpart. I just hope that with Emily playing “faux-mance” with Daniel they don’t let Aidan turn into a one-note jealous boyfriend.

Nolan is usually the only side story I can stand on this show and I don’t believe for one second that Marco is on Nolan’s side, as he puts it. I did find it a bit odd that the writers chose to introduce this new computer program plot so close to the end of the season but I’m curious to see where the writers are going to go with it. Besides, I always like the prospect that Nolan might get the chance to do more than play sidekick.

My favorite scene of the night had to be the tense dinner scene. Even when the show has its troubles, it’s always fun to watch Emily find her angle. The notion that Barnes’ wife, Patricia, was the key to getting the judge was exciting to watch, especially when Patricia admitted that she was the one who wrote the letter, getting her own revenge in the process. Barnes only had one episode but Emily (and Patricia, for that matter) taking him down was quite satisfying.

“Power” is a great comeback and a good deal of fun with some really nice twists. With only a few episodes left I’m curious how they’re going to wrap up this season.
