Revenge ended its sophomore season by outing a secret set up in the series’ pilot: Emily Thorne is really Amanda Clarke, and now her childhood love Jack knows it.
It was a humdinger of a way to wrap the ABC drama’s two-hour finale, which also included the murder of Emily’s mentor Takeda (by her lover Aiden), Conrad’s election-night victory, Nolan’s arrest for a Carrion-created blackout, the reappearance of Victoria’s first (monotone-voiced) son and the death of hapless Declan. Oh, and let’s not forget that The Initiative never really existed – but Conrad was one of its evil masterminds, anyway.
In the hour’s final moments, as Conrad thanked his backers, a vengeful Jack trained a gun on the Governor-Elect from afar. Emily intercepted her friend and set up a huge cliffhanger when she uttered the only thing she thought might deter him: “Deep down inside, you’ve always known the truth: I’m Amanda Clarke.”
