Episode 2×01 “Destiny”

Into Quote:

“Destiny … To Believe That A Life Is Meant For A Single Purpose, One Must Also Believe In A Common Fate. Father To Daughter, Brother To Sister, Mother To Child, Blood Ties Can Be A Unyielding As They Are Eternal. But It Is Our Bonds Of Choice That Truly Light The Road We Travel. Love Versus Hatred, Loyalty Against Betrayal. A Person’s True Destiny Can Only Be Revealed, At The End Of His Journey. ” – Emily Thorne

Review:

Tonight’s Season 2 Premiere Of Revenge Was Epic, As I Expected! In Tonight’s Episode, Emily Made Her Glorious Return To The Hampton’s, In An Attempt To Learn The Truth About Her Mother. Emily Slowly Tries To Get Close With The Graysons, Once Again, To Learn Information ,Regarding Her Mother. At The Beginning Of Tonight’s Premiere, Jack’s Boat Is Shown Being Found At The Bottom Of The Ocean, With A Body Inside. However, We Do Not Learn How This Event Happened, Nor Who The Person Inside Is. I Suspect That This Event, Much Like The One From The Season 1 Premiere, Will Be Fully Shown, About Halfway Through Season 2. In Tonight’s Episode, We Learn That Charlotte & Victoria Are In Fact Alive. We Learn That Victoria Is In Hiding, And Is Working On Something, With The White Haired Man. It’s Revealed That Conrad Is Trying To Gain Control Of Daniel And Charlotte’s Inheritance. I’ve Been A Fan Of Revenge, After Watching The Series Premiere. I Find That The Show Is Able To Mix: Drama, Conspiracy Mystery, Romance, Thrill, Crime, And Many Other Categories, Into A Neatly Wrapped One Hour Time-Slot. Overall, Revenge Is A Magnificent Show, And I Would Absolutely Recommend It. Watch Revenge Live: Sunday’s At 9/8C. On ABC.

Be Sure To Remember That Revenge Is No Longer On Wednesday At 10/9C. Time-Slot. This Season, Revenge Has Moved To Sunday’s At 9/8C.
