Going into this finale episode, I really didn’t know what I was expecting. I mean, the network kept teasing the fact that Emanda gets all bloodied up and that she threatens people and thinks she might die, but, I mean, did any of us actually believe that they would kill Emanda off when there’s to be a second season?
No. No we didn’t.
But I also didn’t expect them to kill anyone off. So I’m glad that the writers had the balls to do it. I mean, as the episode was going on and Conrad was slamming doors and proposing to Lydia and imploring Victoria to not get on the plane to DC (and also not testify) I was sort of like, “So wait. She’s totally going to die, right?” And after the whole exchange with Lydia where he was totally cool with her not absconding with him, I thought, “So, he’s gonna kill her right?” So, yeah, that happened.
And I won’t lie, when V had Emanda open the engagement present and there was nothing in it and V said that thing about how Emanda should find someone more appropriate for her, I was really hoping that Victoria would die. Because that whole exchange was SO BITCHY.
I’m definitely interested to see where that leaves the show next season. Victoria was such a driving force on the show and now that she’s just not going to be around (unless they do a whole SHE’S STILL ALIVE AND IN A COMA thing. I hope they don’t.) there’s going to be a serious lack of Queen Bitch. Unless perhaps Ashley takes on that role? *wishful thinking dance*
HOWEVER. Though I’m not going to spend about two seconds mourning Victoria, I really wished we had been able to see the moment when Victoria realized who Emanda really is. Because I really don’t know how they would play that. Even though V was constantly on a witchhunt for Amanda Clarke, I don’t know what she would have done if she actually found her and confronted her when she realized that after all this time, Amanda Clarke is the girl next door. And also, in general, she’s the daughter of the man V crazy-loved. And while I know that doesn’t always mean anything (Snow White is an easy example since it’s EVERYWHERE these days), I think I was secretly hoping that Emanda and V would join forces and go all revengey on Conrad together.
