Revenge First Look: Can a Cavalcade of Visitors Jog Em's Memory? And Who's That Nurse?

The honeymoon, she is over.

As we learned from a previous Revenge sneak peek, the ABC drama’s first 2014 episode (Sunday Jan. 5, 9/8c) finds new bride Emily recovering in a hospital room, minus her memory and plus a few bullet holes in her torso.

The photos in the gallery below may shed a little more light on whether the new Mrs. Grayson’s memory loss is the real deal or not. But they raise some questions, as well.

What, exactly, does that look on Daniel’s face mean? Is Charlotte showing Emily family photos or asking for help on Candy Crush Level 67? Who’s that woman in the maroon scrubs (played by Melrose Place‘s Stephanie Jacobsen) whom the episode synopsis calls Niko? And is Em’s horrified face when Aiden kisses her proof that she’s not fibbing — or just a nice touch to seal the deception?

Click through the photos, then hit the comments with your theories on what’s happening at Emily’s bedside.

  1. Say what says:

    Is that Mona? Did someone call in A to help out with the revegenda?

  2. Charlotte says:

    Nope, but level 107 is real bitch!

  3. Rook says:

    I’m not sure if she is faking or not. Either way season 3 has been great and I have faith the show will be good in whichever way they go.

  4. meatwad says:

    well of course the nurse looks like a former model lol

  5. Michelle says:

    I sure hope she is faking it all. I like it when she is in control.

  6. ren says:

    i think she really did lose her memory but it will all come back eventually (probably through aiden/nolan/jack) & she’ll go right back to her revengenda.

  7. Jess says:

    Awww- my Aimily

  8. t.becker says:

    nurse is a guard sent from takeda, hence the asian (although not japanese) actor

  9. LOST says:

    How does getting shot in the stomach result in memory-loss?

    • Olivia says:

      2 answers and one does not rule the other out:
      A traumatic event can lead to memory loss as protection. Don’t know how, there’s no medical explaination, it just happens
      If the blood loss was significant to the brain and it reached the part where memory is kept some neurons died or where damaged, hence the memory loss

      They said she hurt her head when she fell in the water.

  10. Lora says:

    Where is Nolan!? Can we take his bedside no-show to mean that he could be in on a bigger plan with (a memory-loss-faking) Emily? (Please)

  11. Jase says:

    Revenge is at its best when it hews closer to its soapy roots like it did for Season 1 and mercifully returned to in Season 3. So the best thing would be for the show to play all the beats i.e. let Emily’s amnesia be real for a few episodes and then let her remember but PRETEND not to have recovered.

  12. Dee says:

    What I wanna know is why is no one harping on the fact that Emily was shot? She was clearly on a boat in the middle of the ocean so obviously whomever shot her was one of the passengers!

  13. Merry says:

    Why is there a wheelchair behind Aiden, as if he’d just stood from it?

  14. Kelly says:

    Didn’t Aiden and Jack go looking for her in the water ? Maybe he hurt himself by saving Emily.

  15. Anna says:

    So.. where’s Nolan? I just really jope she is faking it; or if she isn’t, then she should get her memory back ten minutes into the episode and THEN start faking it, because it is a good idea to avoid confrontation.

    • Lisa-Anne says:

      The producers or writers have said she isn’t faking it, I read that on another article. I think it was the one where they show Daniel talking to Emily the first time!!

  16. Emily says:

    I don’t think the memory loss is the result of trauma from getting shot. She ditched the dress and swan to the bouy where she was supposed to be, right? Either someone injected something in the IV, or she’s faking memory loss from trauma. And with the kissing Aiden picture, she looks sort of horrified(?) if she were acting, someone else would have to be in the room… He wouldn’t kiss her while someone was watching and she wouldn’t act around him unless she wanted him to beleive it for some odd reason. I think she really lost her memory. And it’s probably that nurse, because in the promo, a person with a red smock thing is injecting something into the IV. Although they could be psyching us out and it could just be a shot of a nurse injecting pain meds or something. So many unanswered questions! Blah!
