Tonight’s brand new episode of Revenge, “Masquerade,” reminded us why we fell in love with this shoreside drama in the first place. It featured two deaths, Victoria Grayson fainting, and some excellent acting.

Not only did Nolan Ross have an on-screen mental breakdown, but Aiden Mathis also blew a fuse and headlocked The Initiative rep, Trask, finally ending his greasy life.

Unfortunately, we said goodbye to Nolan’s latest love, Padma Lahari, as the former CFO became The Initiative’s latest victim, but that was hardly the biggest surprise of the night.

Emily Thorne’s blackmail to Victoria Grayson involving her first-born son, led us to a Catholic school and a nun who is keeping Vicki’s darkest secret. This holy woman has vowed to keep Victoria’s identity a secret from her son while also keeping all info on Victoria’s first offspring out of the Ice Queen’s reach.

Now Ems is on the case, and she’s pretending to also be pregnant in a devious plot to win over the sister’s trust. At least she’s not setting the school on fire because that’s how she typically handles her problems.

We were on the edge of our seats throughout tonight’s episode, but tell us what you think! Did “Masquerade” live up to the hype? Vote below!
