Revenge 1×19 “Absolution”

Opening Quote:

End Quote:
“Absolution is a washing away of sin, a promise of rebirth and the chance to escape the transgressions of those who came before us. The best among us will learn from the mistakes of the past while the rest seem doomed repeat them. And then there are those who operate on the fringes of society unburdened by the confines of morality and conscience, a ruthless breed of monsters who’s deadliest weapon is there ability to hide in plain sight. If the people I’ve come to bring justice to can not be bound by the quest for absolution then neither will I”- Emily Thorne

Wow, There’s Not Much To Say About This Episode Of Revenge, Except For The Fact That It Was Completely Awesome! I Wasn’t Expecting All Of The New Twists That Were Thrown Into This Episode. I Must Admit, This Was By far the Best Episode of the Season. Next Week’s Episode Should Be Even Better Than Tonight’s Episode. Revenge is a MUST WATCH. Watch Revenge Live: Wednesday’s at 10/9C. On ABC


These notes only touch upon what was revealed in this key, edge of you seat episode. This was one where everything is staring to come out and you were hit with so much information and suspense that it felt like more then just one episode. This is one to re-watch again and again.
