Whenever a newbie pops up in the Hamptons (seemingly out of nowhere) on Revenge, we have to raise an eyebrow or two. Especially when this addition makes a pass at Nolan Ross.
No offense to our favorite tech genius, but his track record isn’t the best. In fact, the last time we saw him getting physical, his love interest turned out to be gun-wielding psychopath who almost destroyed everyone’s lives. Sigh, good times.
So who is the recently appointed CFO to Nolcorp, and what is her end goal? That remains to be seen. In Sunday night’s episode, Padma Lahari got even closer to Nolan Ross when she uncovered a secret storage shed where his recently departed father left his own personal shrine to the CEO. (We need one of those!)
Things got steamy when Nolan leaned in for an awkward kiss and offered to take Padma on a spur of the moment trip to Paris, but did you notice Padma eyeing Nolan’s check from David Clarke?
We have a feeling that this new addition to Nolan’s life didn’t just fall into his lap. Could she have any ties to The Initiative? Or maybe she’s been secretly employed by the Graysons?
Nolan’s real-life portrayer, Gabriel Mann, isn’t buying her act. Just last month he was quoted saying, “[Dilshad’s] such a talented actress, but she scares me a little bit. She brings the sweet so genuinely that I know they’re about to flip her and Padma’s about to go pitch black. You never know — we could live happily ever after! But probably not.”
Yikes! Could the switch flip around Episode 6, when Padma and Nolan attend the Grayson wedding? We did see one photo of the new CFO chatting up Daniel Grayson. Watch yo’ self, girl!
Do you think Padma’s up to no good? Or are we reading too much into this? Weigh in below!
