    So excited for Revenge. Now, this whole time I’ve thought Emily’s father isn’t really dead. So with that, I believe HE might be The Falcon. It would be interesting if he’s been alive this whole time and trying to thwart all of Emily’s plans. But, if that was true, they wouldnt reveal it so soon…sigh.

  26. bobbie says:

You realize therefore significantly in terms of this matter, produced me in my opinion imagine it from a lot of various angles. Its like men and women are not interested unless it is something to do with Woman gaga! Your personal stuffs outstanding. At all times take care of it up
