Last time on Revenge, we saw Mason (Roger Bart) finally get what was coming to him. After ages of his prodding and tormenting, he's finally off to prison, only to one day be released once Emily (Emily VanCamp) says her work is done. Sure. That'll go off with out a hitch. In the meantime, he has time to write a tell-all.
WHAT WE LEARNED
A Glimpse Into Victoria's Sad Past: In this almost-entirely flashback-based episode, we're thrown all the way back to 2006. But Hampton's style revenge was alive and well back in the day, and some of the most interesting scenes in this ep involve Victoria's mother, Marion (Adrienne Barbeau), who drops by for Thanksgiving after secretly planning a trip, receiving only Daniel's (Josh Bowman) blessing in advance. It was a poor choice on her part. What does she want? To show off a new rich suitor, and to prove to this man that she's normal. It's all going fine and well, for Marion, as Victoria (Madeline Stowe) appears to even be keeping her trap shut about just how horrible of an childhood she had. That is until her mother's beau Ben actually shows up. Then we hear some horror stories, like the time one of Marion's lover want to leave her, so mommy dearest made Victoria shoot him and then tell the police that he was trying to attack them. It was a sick upbringing, and it promptly scares Ben away from Marion. Happy Revenge Thanksgiving!
