Revenge (ABC)

“Intense.” “Mind-blowing.” “Insane.” These are the words that have been bandied about by the “Revenge” cast when describing Wednesday’ night’s first season finale, “Reckoning.” (ABC, 10/9c.)

So just how intense, mind-blowing, and insane is it going to get? ABC has just released several new juicy clips that get to the heart of this matter faster than you can say, “My name is Amanda Clarke. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” Warning: spoilers ahead!

DVR the Season Finale of “Revenge”

Will Ashley Tell Daniel About The Kiss? Last week, Ash spied the steamy Emily-Jack make-out session oddly spawned by the death of Sammy. Since Ashley has always been a behind-the-scenes player yearning for a spot on the front lines, telling Daniel could be the power move she needs to earn his trust, and finally make her way to the inner circle:

What Happened to Nolan? The last we saw of Nolan, WHM (White Haired Man) had him in a choke hold. Clearly he’s not dead – but what did WHM do with him? Hint: he’s not in the penthouse at the Plaza hotel.

Anyone else impressed with Emily’s stellar Inigo Montoya here?

Somehow WHM has captured Emily — but she has another trick up her sleeve (or off her wrist, shall we say?):

All of that training Emily did with Takeda is about to REALLY pay off in one dramatic confrontation. Whoa:

Meanwhile, in How Is This Possible news, below, Victoria learns a shocking truth:

How both Emily and Victoria, the two most cunning, deceptive, intelligent characters on this entire show, have NOT known that David Clarke was murdered seems a blunder of Declan Porter-level proportions.

Finally, there’s this Emmy-worthy scene between Victoria and Conrad. No set-up needed here, other than to just remark that both Madeleine Stowe and Henry Czerny are doing the best work of there careers with these hateful interactions:

Here’s ABC’s description of the finale:

“Reckoning” – With the end in sight, Emily fearlessly pushes forward, closing in on the final phases of her plan for revenge, while the Graysons continue their downward spiral into the rabbit hole of self-destruction. But a big, explosive event leaves much hanging in the balance, courses are altered and even more is left in question, on the Season Finale of Revenge.
