‘Revenge’ 4×17 – Emily regroups and tries to clear Jack’s name

In the last episode, the red sharpie returns as three people are cross off. But who is doing the crossing off?

In this week’s episode, titled ‘Loss’, the group comes together and tries to clear Jack’s name while Margaux’s revenge might deepen by show’s end.

To help clear his name, he calls on his mother for help. Somone we haven’t seen in about a season’s worth of a shows. But she causes more problems with the Judge as she finds herself in contempt.

Up to team Emily to come and save the day.

Emily is able to get Jack’s real blood sample from the night he was arrested from Margaux’s right-hand man, which he gives up willingly (though it’s important to point out that he had a gun pointed at his head. But that’s neither here nor there).

Now that she’s got the blood, should be a walk in the park, right?

The judge won’t let the blood be tested because he doesn’t trust that she didn’t contaminate it, because that doesn’t sound like her at all. This forces Emily to use her old tricks (with the help of Nolan and Ben) to blackmail the Judge into letting him test the blood. Thus freeing Jack.

With Jack’s name being run through the mud, Emily makes an attempt to try and end this little feud (and I say ‘feud’ because it’s no where near the capacity of what she dealt with Victoria) with Margaux. She goes so far to bring her a peace offering in the form of her real birth certificate. But it’s a short-lived peace as Margaux gets hit by a car and loses her baby.

Looks like the feud might escalate into a battle by season’s end because she blames Emily for her loss. And she drags Victoria into her mess by telling her that Emily pushed her. This doesn’t come as a surprise because it looks like Margaux finally admits to herself that she can’t take down Emily but she knows Victoria could.

Meanwhile, Nolan might have found love in a social worker that he meets. He willingly gives up information about his ‘marriage’ to Louise. What he won’t do for love (including risking his and Louise’s safety). No way this won’t come an bite him in the butt.

Louise tells Nolan the truth about what happened to Lyman and he helps her clean up the mess. Just another day at the office for him.

In next week’s show, Emily tries to fix what happened with Margaux while Victoria works a new lead against Emily.
