Revenge “Ambush” Recap

This week’s episode starts out with a little teaser of Victoria’s (Madeline Stowe) possible demise then flashes back 20 hours to see Emily (Emily VanCamp) breaking into the beach house in search of evidence. She is desperately trying to find out what happened to her father over the past 12 years.

Daniel (Josh Bowman) is feeling nostalgic and looking at old pictures from his wedding with Emily. He’s with Margaux (Karine Vanesse) now and concerned that she is spending too much time with crazy Louise (Elena Satine). Margaux wore a Herve Leger Printed Jacquard Sheath Dress ($1,740). I found this similar Line Jacquard Cap-Sleeve Dress ($69.50):

Daniel pays a visit to Victoria to finally confront her about Emily being Amanda. It’s funny that everyone finally knows the truth. Daniel is taking it much better than I thought he would. He makes a good point about keeping David (James Tupper) in the dark.

David goes to see Emily without knowing who she really is. I can’t get over why she doesn’t just tell him the truth. It is sort of annoying. She gives him a little tidbit about Amanda’s baby shower which makes him question Victoria’s motives.

In other news, Margaux and Louise play tennis at the club and hit the sauna. All is going well until crazy Louise hallucinates her mother and decides to lock Margaux in the sauna and turn up the heat.

Victoria meets with an old friend who ended up buying most of her things at auction. The real reason Victoria met with her was to retrieve a necklace that I can only assume has some sort of sentimental value. Victoria stuns in a sold out Michael Kors Cobalt Cap Sleeve Dress. This Ralph Lauren Faux Wrap Jersey Dress ($134)  is a great match:

Two of my favorite scenes from the entire series happen next! The first, with Emily and Daniel. They finally have a real conversation and I think he finally understands and appreciates Amanda for who she is. That was about four years in the making. The second was Victoria in the strip club. I never would have pictured her in there, but seeing her put the necklace in the stripper’s garter was priceless. There are no limits to what she will do to protect herself.

Nolan (Gabriel Mann) finally meets Louise at the club while he is hiding out from the press. She might be one of my favorite new characters. What I would do for her bank account and wardrobe…must be nice! She wore a sold out Donna Karan Canvas Dress. This Tracy Reese Sleeveless Knit Sheath Dress ($298) is similar:

Nolan takes Louise’s advice to heart and decides to buy the beach club. In the meantime, Margaux confronts Daniel about Louise and realizes that he slept with her.

Emily finds out that David had been spying on Amanda and is distraught that he never came for her. She finally reveals who she is…THANK GOD! Before they can reconnect Victoria gets struck by lightening ending the episode. Dum Dum Dum! I don’t think Emily/Amanda was too upset by that. She is wearing a sold out Dip Dye Wool-Cashmere Sweater by Vince. This Calvin Klein Dip dye Ombre Soft Cotton Sweater ($79.50) is similar:

I can’t wait to see how David handles having Amanda back in his life and what will happen next.

Revenge “Damage” Recap

David Clarke (James Tupper) is finally back at the beach house where he belongs. Everyone seems to have mixed feelings about this, especially Victoria (Madeline Stowe). She is nervous for David’s television interview because she has no idea what he is going to say. I loved Victoria’s L’Wren Scott Classic Embroidered Cardigan (sold out) and was surprised by the jeans. I don’t think we’ve ever seen her in jeans before. I found this similar Laura Scott Women’s Embroidered Cardigan ($19.99):

Emily (Emily VanCamp) and Nolan (Gabriel Mann) hack into the FBI to try and find out what her father has been through. She wears the Joie Rancher Top in Robin’s Egg ($79) and Arte Designs Peruvian Opal Cuff Bracelet (temporarily sold out). For more size options I found this ASTR Cap Sleeve V-Neck Blouse ($46):

Joie Rancher Top

In the meantime, Charlotte’s (Christa B. Allen) one night stand turns out to be a kidnapper. Much to my surprise, she ends up taking him out while wearing a La Perla Dolce Chemise ($128). This Natori Silky Chemise ($78) is a little more affordable:

In other news, Margaux (Karine Vanasse) calls Daniel (Josh Bowman) to let him know that his new business relationship with Louise (Elena Satine) is now public knowledge…little does she know that their relationship is more than just business. Margaux wears a Alice + Olivia Briony layered lace tank (sold out) and the Alexander McQueen Leaf Crepe Pencil Skirt (sold out). To recreate this look, I found this Vince Camuto Lace Blouse ($71.40) and this High-Waisted Pencil Skirt ($41.97):

Enter Victoria to remind Daniel again that she is his mother. She also comes clean about being in a mental institution, but she doesn’t tell him that Emily put her there. This was only to warn him about Louise’s instability. Victoria wears a Cushnie et Ochs Buckled Power Viscose Sheath Dress (sold out). This Let’s Gather Together Dress in Berry ($49.99) is similar:

Louise and Victoria have a weird meeting and we start to see some of Louise’s delusions towards Victoria. Victoria has no interest in a relationship with Louise which is too bad because if loyalty is what Victoria wants Louise would be devout. She is starting to be one of my favorite characters -plus she always looks fabulous this time in a sold out floral print Dolce & Gabbana dress. This INC International Concepts Cap-Sleeve Floral-Print Sheath Dress ($129.50) is a great look for less:

dolce and gabbana

In a surprising move, David decides to blast Nolan on live TV instead of Victoria. I feel like they were sort of jumping the shark here. At that point I would have just told him that Emily is Amanda, Amanda is Emily to clear my name. Victoria wore a sold out Roland Mouret Brownlow stretch-crepe dress. This Adrianna Papell Asymmetric Waist Stretch Crepe Sheath Dress ($98) is similar:

roland mouret

Things worked out swimmingly for Margaux as she got a killer interview. She wore a sold out Diane von Furstenberg
‘Jezebel’ Silk Blouse and Abstract Black Spinel Earrings from Arte Designs ($68).


I was so happy when Charlotte finally called Victoria out and decided to leave to go to rehab. This is probably the smartest thing she’s ever done on this show. Charlotte looks sophisticated in the sold out Roland Mouret Abbotsford Dress. This Marc New York by Andrew Marc Square Neck Sleeveless Sheath Dress ($74.99) is a good match:

roland mouret green

Before Charlotte leaves she stops to tell Daniel the truth about Emily. As she is in the car on her way out of town she discovers a mysterious letter from Emily in her purse but we don’t get to see what it says. Charlotte wore an Adrianna Papell Ribbon Stripe Strapless Dress ($480). This Felicity & Coco Strapless Stripe Maxi Dress ($88) is similar:

adrianna papell gold ribbon

In the end Emily still doesn’t want to tell David the truth which really annoyed me…I mean come on already – this is getting ridiculous!!

Revenge “Repercussions” Recap

I can’t believe Victoria’s (Madeline Stowe) nerve to take David (James Tupper) to “Amanda’s” grave. How does she think this will end well when he finds out that she knew Amanda (Emily VanCamp) is alive? Victoria wore a Graphic Color Block dress from Karen Millen (sold out). I found two great options to recreate this look, the first a Calvin Klein Color Block Ponte Sheath Dress ($82.99) and the second a Andrew Marc Women’s Sleeveless Color-Block Sheath Dress ($38.40):


Of course Margaux (Karine Vanasse) wants the inside story and is annoyed that after Victoria asked her for money that she isn’t getting the first interview. Margaux is ready for work in an Alexander McQueen Military Cowl Dress in White (sold out). This Bebe Rose Smoke Cowl Neck Dress ($129) is a little different, but I thought it was a similar look that would be appropriate for work.

Daniel (Josh Bowman) asks Margaux to keep their relationship private – he has learned from the past and prefers not to be a public figure. It’s a sweet moment between them as he helps her with her earring. She wore these Sterling Silver and Pearl Linear Drop Earrings from Lord & Taylor ($30).

Daniel’s top priority right now is to keep Louise (Elena Satine) happy and re-establish his credibility in the business world. Louise is unpredictable and has him meet her during a shopping excursion. This girl looks fabulous all the time and makes and entrance in this Michael Kors Gold Leather-piped Strapless Dress (sold out). I loved this dress and looked hard for something similar. I came up with two options, the first  –  Abstract Embroidered Bodycon Dress from Forever 21 ($27.90) and the second – Simply Liliana Cap-Sleeve Lace Sheath from JCP ($83.99):

She goes in for the kill with this Embellished Bandage Gown by Herve Leger (sold out). This Dramatic Bandage Pearl Prom Gown by Terani Couture ($482) is the perfect match:

Emily tries to see David at his hotel, but someone makes an attempt on his life. Unfortunately, Victoria has seen to it that only family members can visit David so Emily tries to get in through Charlotte (Christa B. Allen). Charlotte is wearing the Lace Bird Jacquard Dress by Alexander McQueen ($897). This Jacquard Cap-Sleeve Dress from Line ($55.60) is the perfect look for less:

Charlotte’s loyalties are sketchy at best and just when you think she is going to side with Emily, she switches back to Victoria instead. Emily wears Stella McCartney Straight Leg Pants ($297.98) and Arte Designs Blue Topaz Link Earrings ($82). To recreate the look, I found this Pleione Mixed Media Tunic ($58) and the Perfect Form Mini Bootcut Pant from White House Black Market ($88):

On the other side of town, Daniel finally gives in to Louise’s seduction. It wasn’t that difficult  – he was an easy mark. Too bad for Margaux who was way out of his league. Louise wore a Herve Leger Bateau Neck Dress (sold out). This Rachel Pally Sylvia Dress ($84.99) is a great match:

herve leger batau

I don’t understand why no one tells David that Amanda is still alive or that Amanda is Emily! I guess that would ruin the fun – but seriously it is driving me nuts! Emily looks for a way to connect with David away from Victoria, so she strikes a deal with Margaux. Emily wore a Fluted Hem Dress by Armani (sold out). I found a few options to recreate this look. The first, a Short Sleeve Fluted Bodycon Dress from Charlotte Russe ($26.99) and the second, a Susana Monaco Edina Scoop Back Dress ($74.99):


Margaux is a businesswoman at heart, she doesn’t get too involved in these power plays but her loyalty always lies with the business. She struck a deal in a chartreuse sheath. I found this Calvin Klein Cutout Sheath Dress ($98) and this Ellen Tracy Short-Sleeve Pleat-Waist Sheath ($98) to match:


Margaux uses this is a way to help Daniel reinstate his good standing in the community. Victoria is none too happy when Daniel presents David with the deed to his old beach house. Victoria wore a Crocheted and stretch-knit peplum dress from Oscar de la Renta ($864). Modcloth has a few options to match this look, the first a Damask Masquerade Dress ($89.99), the second, a Captivate the Crowd Dress ($169.99), the third, a Penchant for Posh Dress ($109.99).

Emily discovers that Margaux is in bed with Daniel, which means she isn’t a true ally. Margaux wore an Embellished Woven and Cotton-Tweed Dress by Jason Wu (sold out). I chose this Ellen Tracy Sleeveless Floral-Sequin Sheath ($101.99) as a look for less. It comes in black or white.

Louise discovers that Daniel is really involved with Margaux and confronts him about it. They agree to remain friends and business partners, that is until Louise calls Page Six with an anonymous tip. She wore a sexy graphic print strapless dress. I found this WOW Couture Dress ($49.72) as a look for less:


So once David finally gets in the house, he is reminded of Amanda and plays a song they used to dance to. Was anyone else yelling at the TV that this was her moment to tell him? He was alone and thinking of her! The writers tried to play it off like she needed more time, but I think this was really dumb. They were just trying to keep the secret/plot going and I think that they might have jumped the shark a little bit here.

In other news, Charlotte is getting back to her partying ways. I really don’t understand this girl. She wore a sequin sheath to the club. The style is a little different, but I think this Adrianna Papell Illusion Yoke Beaded Sheath Dress ($258) had s similar silhouette:
