The plot: new Hampton resident Emily Thorne quickly becomes a thorn in the side of Victoria Grayson, as she ingratiates herself into the life of Victoria’s son, Daniel. Emily, born Amanda Clarke, returns to the Hamptons to avenge the wrongs inflicted on her father by the Graysons, deeds that destroyed her father’s life, and changed hers, too..
The second half of season two muddled along and became confusing, and I was ready to throw in the towel. Kudos to the writers for finding their way in season three, creating a major plot shift. When the Graysons were about to get their due, at Emily/Amanda and Daniel’s wedding, things went awry.
Emily and her loyal sidekick, Nolan, were ready. Emily has now been exposed as a young woman desperate to become a part of the Hampton social scene, rather than one out for blood.
The show is on hiatus until early March, so this is the perfect time to binge watch. Can’t wait to see what comes next!
