This week on A VERY REVENGE(!!!)-Y THANKSGIVING: We take a journey all the way back to 2006 when Emily, working for Takeda, is taking down a Russian prostitution ring. In so doing, she runs into both Ashley (a hooker with a heart of gold Art History degree), as well as Aiden, working freelance to bring down the Russian dude. Obvs this ends with Emily recruiting Aiden for #TeamTakeda. Then, in a flashback-within-a-flashback, we learn that Queen V’s mother is officially the worst person ever on this show. You can tell this by how she has THE WORST HAIR THIS SHOW HAS EVER SEEN. Also? 2006 Nolan totally hooked up with his previous (male) CFO, which I think is important to know as the episode ends with 2012 Daniel calling this dude.

 Emily‘s Target
Ems goes full-on Revenge(!!!) Ninja this week, crawling around in air conditioning ducts and pulling guns on people while wearing the shortest dress this side of a Kardashian. Oh, and she was going after some dude name Sergei.

Gala of the Week
Even in flashback times, the Graysons can’t throw a party that doesn’t end in somebody storming out and/or being carried out on a stretcher. In this case, it’s the former, as Queen V outs her AWFUL MOTHER in front of everybody.

Best Dressed
While I have some affection for L’il Victoria’s prairie dress, I’ll give it to 2006-Victoria’s gold dress with bow belt detail. Totes adorbs, which are two words I have never used when discussing Queen V.

Most Soapy Moment
Maybe the part where Queen Victoria’s mother makes L’il Victoria SHOOT A GUY so that her mother doesn’t go to jail? And in so doing destroys L’il V’s life? Tragic Backstory 101.

Over-the-Shoulder Hugs: 0
No over-the-shoulder hugs, but a lot of canoodling this week both between 2012 Emily/Aiden and 2006 Nolan/Marco. 

 

Come back on Wednesday for Jill‘s take on this week’s dramz. Even if you were busy watching Liz & Dick, there were some twists and turns (and outfits!) you’ll need to read about.
