Throughout some of the first episodes of “Revenge” in 2015, one thing became clear: Margaux wants to destroy Emily Thorne with every fabric of her being. She blames her for Daniel’s death, and with that in mind, you really cannot be shocked that she wants revenge.
What she did on Sunday night’s “Bait” was completely underestimate just what sort of awesome things Emily is really capable of. Specifically, we are talking about a plan to completely expose her that fell apart thanks to a surprise player: Louise! She really came through the clutch, and we really enjoy seeing her and Nolan together. They have such a fun, interesting dynamic, and Nolan sees part of himself in her. Unfortunately, though, we are not going to see Margaux give up on this just yet, and she looks to be blackmailing Ben to get what he wants.
Away from revenge, there was a chance at some romance between her and Jack, but it didn’t work out. Despite a heartfelt confession of love to her, she ultimately turned him away. Why? She didn’t really offer up an explanation, but she has Ben and doesn’t seem that interested in exploring that part of her past.
Elsewhere, we learned that Natalie Waters is technically a Grayson (though one with slightly better motives on paper), and that Louise’s brother is now in cahoots with Victoria in an effort to ensure that she gets what she wants in the battle over the will. In turn, he gets campaign money.
All in all, a much better episode tonight than we even expected after what was a weaker winter finale to some. Grade: B+.
