Was Emily Thorne’s Shooter a Surprise on Revenge? (POLL)

SPOILER ALERT: Fed up cuckold Daniel Grayson (Joshua Bowman) busted a cap in new wife Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) on Sunday night's midseason finale of Revenge. All season long we've been teased with Emily getting popped on her honeymoon cruise. Pretty much the entire cast of characters were suspects at one time or another.

My money had been on Daniel and Emily's trainwreck of a shared half-sister Charlotte Grayson (Christa B. Allen). She's been acting all shades of cray-cray so far this season. It was nice to actually be shocked by a soap's finale. Although the promo for the spring premiere gave much too much away! Anyhoo, were you as surprised as I was by Emily's shooter?

Did the identity of Emily Thorne's shooter on Revenge shock you?

    This show isn’t what it used to be when it first started, it has become way too predictable. The writers needed to figure out what they were gonna do with Daniel, they had him teeter-tottering around being the bad guy and the good guy, and having him shoot Emily was a lazy way to put that the nail in the good guy coffin. As soon as his ex came back into the picture it was obvious that Daniel would be the shooter.

    I thought the shooter would have been Aiden, because let’s face it, the dude knows that Emily is really in love with her childhood sweetheart. The writing for Daniel has been all over the place the last two seasons with good guy clueless Daniel versus Daniel turns into his father. It’s time for Daniel to pick a side and stick to it!

    It was very predictable. Daniel has been written into a corner since the season began. So I wasn’t shocked at all.

    “Revenge” has just become one of these shows that had one good season and afterwards it only got worse. Season two wasn’t great and season three has been a disappointment so far.

    The characters are all pretty much unlikable now. The men seem one-dimensional while the women are all acting like little mean girls who throw lines at each other.

    And while in season one and two, I always found myself rooting for Emily and her quest for revenge, I’m kind of over her. There is nobody to root for anymore tbh.

    Guess I won’t return for the 2nd half of the 3rd season.

    I now agree with the actor, time to kill Daniel off. I have no idea why they chose to rewrite his character. It was cool season 1 when he was the clueless innocent victim in Emily’s scheme. I have no idea what they could do with him now.

    Why he fall back in love with his ex cripple girlfriend? Why in the world would she try to kill herself? This chick was cripple for years and finally was able to walk again. She did that cake for Em/Daniel wedding and from that it got her more business, and yet she tries to kill herself now cause Daniel got married? Makes no sense?

    It should have been Aiden. Emily is just using him and doesn’t love him. That would make more sense. They tried to go for shock value but it didn’t work.

    So was the ex-girlfriend suicidal because Daniel got married or because Jack shut her horny ass down.

    To me that random call made no sense..I am wondering if someone made that call to Daniel knowing he was so close to the end

    And Lydia I just don’t get her dumb plot point that should have stayed “dead”

    I agree though that one Grayson has to get gone and soon or this whole revenge thing is moot. So since I doubt it will be Conrad or Victoria maybe Daniel needs to bite the dust

    What I don’t understand abt the show is that becuase they continue to make Emily’s true secret a secret from everyone that it makes Conrad and Victoria look like fools for 3 years instead of the reveal on the yacht being her true identity and then have it a FANTASTIC whodunit.

    Can you imagine if jack, after learning abt Daniels ex and all the shenanigans Emily has done selfishly decides it’s time to finish the ruse and during that video on the yacht he reveals all. Then with Emily outside waiting for the right moment to shoot herself is confronted by a mystery person and then shot?!! There was no real reason for Daniel to shoot Emily solely because his ex committed or attempted suicode or that Emily lied abt being pregnant. (Right now he is more crazy because of it.)

    VICTORIA is supposed to be the smart bitch who can get out of any trap. REVENGE should be multiple revenge stories every season. After season 1 Emily’s secret should have been revealed and Victoria in season two should have been exacted HER revenge against all involved. Then at season 3 something like a combined threat to both Victoria and Emily could combine their forces to protect against another revenge ALL THE WAY having all the soapy goodness needed to make it great.

    The continuation of one SIMPLE revenge story only makes all the characters silly and dumb. For me I keep wondering why Emily just doesn’t go to the Feds with all her evidence. REVENGE COMPLETE instead of trying to set them up.

    Charlotte needs to be dropped and sadly now so does Daniel.

    Something tells me Emily was wearing a vest and not actually shot. Fakes amnesia to continue her revenge. Boring.

    I was disappointed Emily was still alive. I wanted her dead. I wanted Aiden to be the one who killed her and they can both go.

    I agree Victoria not figuring this out SEason 2 was misfire. She is the seasoned one here for me.

    How long can this Emily/Amanda chick keep going in circles? With amnesia, she will return to Jack. Aiden will leave. Her gig is up. End of show.

    The others were not developed smart enough to continue without her. The others were better but the writers focused on her. She was good first season but I think they twisted her more than the Daniel character. Hard to figure out what they wanted from her. At least with Daniel, he loved Emily but then felt more for ex girlfriend. Emily was written last season as a sociopath. So her revenge routine made no sense.
