‘Revenge’: Falcon Revealed, Grayson Bombshell Makes for Best ‘Nightline’ Ever

Who did you think would turn out to be the hacker the Falcon on “Revenge“? Aiden? Victoria’s lost lost child? Ashley, just so her character would have some purpose?

This week’s episode of “Revenge” confirmed a lesson I learned as a child from “The Shining.” Nothing good can come from a maze. Also there is attempted murder by trash compactor, a very dramatic press conference, the revelation of two romantic backstories, and Nolan (Gabriel Mann) gets attacked. Yes, again. DVR the Next Episode of […]
