ABC has canceled “Revenge” the nighttime soap opera that apparently has run its course. After the May 4 finale of season four, “Revenge” will be no more, leaving many fans disappointed.
According to MSN Entertainment News on April 29, after Victoria’s on-air death many fans were left questioning where “Revenge” would go from here? The show burst on the scene as a “must-see” weekly show, one of those that you schedule your night around. The plot and the cast were spot-on and season one and two were entertainment at its best, but then it got too complicated and too off-the-wall when it came to sub plots.
In the beginning you got to know the good, bad and the ugly among the cast and each and every one of them brought something to the show, but some of the twists and turns just twisted and turned too much. No one has a clue as to how Emily’s story is going to end, but fans of the show will need something spectacular to be surprised as Emily has just about gotten herself into every kind of trouble known to man!
Some of the things that might have been done differently was to get Emily and Jack hooked up earlier on in the show. With just a few episodes left, hopefully that will happen in some capacity. Changing Charlotte into a miniature of her mother seemingly overnight did not do the character justice. According to Yahoo News has heard, “Revenge” is going to have a very different ending, one that no one is expecting.
Charlotte was one of the few innocent offerings on this show, as was Jack for a while. Tainting all the characters as time went on seemed like an over-the-top move. Bringing Emily’s father back wasn’t the best move either. There was so much Emily held sacred because of her father’s death, bringing him back just changed the game plan too much.
It made one lust for the days on the beach when someone with a gun shocked the audience. As the series went on, guns were child’s play in comparison. With the first few seasons there were equal parts of drama with Emily as a woman, action with Emily as the “Karate Kid” and mystery with Emily’s “Mission Impossible” moments, but then it turned into a confusing string of betrayals, deaths and resurrections.
Nolan Ross’s character could have gone a different way while still being like the brother Emily never had. Even his lifestyle got confusing when he was so adamant about who he was in the beginning. Will the remaining episodes do the characters justice? How would you like to see “Revenge” end for Emily?
