A major death mid episode wasn’t too shocking, and since it was Aiden it only laid a more open path for Emily to get with Jack. Of course, it also meant plenty of more time for murder and mayhem for the season finale, and boy were we not disappointed. And of course, now that we know ABC has renewed "Revenge" for a fourth season, all bets are off and it looks like all kinds of people will be seeking revenge of their own.
Charlotte needs to be brought up to speed, and fast, if she doesn’t want to derail Jack’s life in the process of finding out what everyone has been hiding from her. And now that Nolan has blood on his hands in a roundabout way, suddenly in bed with a bad business boy, Daniel is going to be gunning for him big time. Once he gets out of the legal mess he is about to find himself in, of course. Victoria finally knows the truth, but it will be hard to get people to believe her since she’s locked up in a mental institution. Even Conrad, someone who could back her up, is now dead, seemingly at the hands of David Clarke, the one and only. So who has been keeping him locked away, and what kind of revenge of his own does he have planned? And with Victoria and Conrad unable to clean up any of their children's messes right now, how much worse will it get for them too?
