On Revenge Season 4 Episode 5, Emily sets out to reunite with her father, the formerly late David Clarke, but needs to find the right plan to do so, of course.
Victoria has the upper hand, as well, so that’s complicating matters.
Since the Ice Queen herself was the first one to get to David, she is in total command of how the media sees him and who gets access to the mystery man.
This has – to quote the Revenge Season 4 Episode 5 title – lasting “Repercussions” for Emily Thorne as she seeks to come face to face with David this week.
David’s got a lot on his plate as well, considering he’s … well, him.
No sooner does the media gather for an appearance by David than someone with a mysterious crescent moon tattoo on his hand attempts to run him over.
Emily believes the would-be hit man was hired by Victoria, which wouldn’t be hugely surprising, and goes to Charlotte for help getting access to David.
Victoria tells Charlotte that there’s no subterfuge here, and that it’s Emily who’s the manipulator, lying about her identity at the expense of people’s lives.
Meanwhile, Margaux wants an exclusive on David Clarke’s return.
That may not happen soon with Victoria in charge, but she also looks to help Daniel re-tool his public persona, though he wants to keep his personal life personal.
Of course, the young Grayson then complicates things himself.
Doing whatever he has to do to maintain her portfolio, as Margaux instructed, Daniel gives in to Louise’s advances in a move that will surely have consequences.
The media is all over Jack as well, and his boss sidelines him.
Until David Clarke’s return blows over, he’s ordered to step aside. Given all he’s experienced with these odd and tragic deaths and rebirths it’s not a bad idea.
Speaking of strange deaths, Ben wonders why Conrad Grayson’s demise has sort of been glossed over, and he sets out to look into that matter himself.
Charlotte takes David to meet Jack, not Emily, who gets a text telling her to come to a hotel room, implying but not stating that David would be there.
Instead, Victoria opens the door. The plot thickens …
David meets with Nolan, who urges him not to believe what people say about his daughter. Emily, Nolan, and Jack plan to bring David to the beach house.
There, she will reveal herself as Amanda Clarke.
She will use Daniel and Margaux to pull that off, giving her the exclusive after all. Follow the link to watch Revenge online and see it all go down for yourself!
