Emily: “I wouldn’t hurt him because underneath all of the scar tissue, the flaws, the temper, there was a genuinely good guy just trying to find his way. So despite our history, despite everything that I told myself, I cared about him.”

Man, the heartbreak is in full swing during this episode. Between Emily’s statement to Ben about why she would never harm Daniel, Victoria’s hallucination, and the Daniel and Emily flashbacks, tonight’s episode is heart wrenching. What scene made you tear up the most?
The fallout from Daniel’s death is nicely done, but the trick will be making it mean something. Right now, all Daniel’s death has done is rattle some characters. Victoria still doesn’t like Emily, so it’s not like Daniel’s death changed that. The biggest impact seems to be that Margaux is determined to bring down Emily. Perhaps this will make Margaux interesting, but let’s not aim too high.
Emily made a couple mistakes in this episode, which is unheard of for her. It is great that Daniel’s death is taking a toll on her. Even though she isn’t outwardly grieving, Emily isn’t as sharp as she normally is, causing her to make mistakes. Are you surprised that Emily made a mistake in giving her statement to the police?
Nolan and David are doing something throughout the episode so that Malcolm Black doesn’t catch on to the fact that his daughter is dead. Honestly, this part of the episode is not all that exciting. It’s background noise. Margaux is even more exciting than this. At least, the trick Malcolm scenes didn’t take up a lot of the episode. The focus is on grieving Daniel, as it should have been.
So far, there hasn’t really been any concrete proof that Malcolm Black is a horrible human being. David just keeps mentioning how bad it will be if Malcolm shows up. It is hard to fear Malcolm. Thankfully, the end of the episode featured Malcolm making his debut in the Hamptons by killing Alvarez. Should we be afraid of Malcolm?
Alright, David was going to kill Victoria in the last episode. Why? Well it sure would have been nice to get some answers in this episode. It’s annoying that David never voices his reasons for killing Victoria and that Emily doesn’t ask. He has been pretending to be still in love with Victoria ever since he resurfaced.
Yes, Emily has her reasons for wanting Victoria dead, but David has never really shown any hints that he does. It could be that he has just never believed any of the excuses she has told him about why he went to jail. Clarification would be really helpful.
Jack is struggling in this episode, and he really should be. Of course, he keeps it all inside, but if he wasn’t freaking out over killing someone, not to mention someone he was recently intimate with, it would have felt off. You have to admit, though, Jack looked like a pro when staging that crime scene. He has learned a lot during his time with Emily and Nolan.
What did you think of the episode? Is anyone else still in denial over Daniel’s death? How do you think Ben will stick his nose where it doesn’t belong next? Man, the police sure can be annoying when they are doing their jobs and investigating Emily. Leave me your thoughts in a comment below.
