In a series called Revenge, a few deaths are to be expected, but [[spoiler:Amanda's death]] is still surprising.



** With season three finale we got [[spoiler: Aiden murdered by Victoria and Conrad murdered by a not so dead David Clarke ]]

** With season three finale we got [[spoiler: Aiden murdered by Victoria and Conrad murdered by a not so dead David Clarke ]]Clarke]].



** [[spoiler:By the series finale, the only main characters still alive are Emily/Amanda, Nolan, Charlotte, and Jack. Everyone else is dead (except for Margaux, who ends up going to jail)]].



* DeathOfTheHypotenuse: [[spoiler:By the series finale, the only rival love interest for Jack and Emily/Amanda's relationship that's still alive is Margaux, who willingly ends up going to jail. Everyone else is dead, including Daniel Grayson, who had no shot with Emily after Season 2 (which is when he lost any interest he once had anyway), and Ben Hunter, a ThirdOptionLoveInterest introduced in the final season after Aiden died and Daniel was no longer any competition for Emily's heart]].



* TheUnfavorite: Charlotte for Victoria.

to:

* TheUnfavorite: Charlotte for Victoria. Victoria ''does'' love her daughter, but it's obvious Daniel is the golden boy. Though, one would think it should be the other way around, considering that Charlotte is the only child she had with a man she genuinely loved, while Daniel is the child she had with a man she despises.



** The same can also be said for Emily. Her single-minded focus on Victoria as her primary target doesn't quite hold up when you remember that Conrad was the chief instigator in the framing and [[spoiler: attempted]] murder of David. Victoria's role was negligible in comparison and, at times, barely complicit.

Victoria's role was negligible in comparison and, at times, barely complicit. Then again, Emily's fixation on Victoria isn't entirely unjustified, as Victoria was the one who had Emily committed to an asylum where she was basically mentally tortured by a psychiatrist on Victoria's payroll, the treatment of which eventually damaged her so badly that she landed in juvie.


Added DiffLines:

** Emily/Amanda is hardly innocent either. She was engaged to Daniel while shacking it up with Aiden behind his back. The most innocent of her relationships was actually with Jack, and ''that'' can be interpreted as an on-and-off emotional affair that lasted all four seasons.

* BrokenPedestal: Louise sees Victoria as a wonderful woman hurt by life and looks up to her immensely. She sees Victoria as a friend and even mother figure and wants to be just like her. When Victoria [[spoiler: seems to have killed herself]], Louise goes to see Charlotte who rants on how horrible a woman her mother was and Louise thrown by this. In the series finale, Louise [[spoiler: discovers Victoria faked her death as a plot to set up Emily and rants on how it's deserved. Louise finally realizes what a twisted and evil woman Victoria is and betrays her.]]

* TheDogBitesBack: Mason's second appearance has shades of this -- Victoria recruits his help in [[spoiler:proving Daniel's innocence]], but when he's led to believe that she's been deceiving him, he goes in the exact opposite direction, [[spoiler:more or less destroying the defense's case]].
** Mason [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder somehow manages to do the same to Emily]], [[spoiler: using her trust in him as an ally to plant evidence in her car framing her for Victoria's murder.]]

** Natalie, Conrad's ex-mistress, has major streaks of this towards Conrad. She goes as far as to marry Conrad's father and [[spoiler:starve him to death]] in order gain access to the Grayson name and fortune, enters Victoria's social circle in order to undermine Conrad's ex-wife, and [[spoiler:attempts to frame David for domestic abuse as a way of posthumously avenging Conrad.]] As the cherry on top, she erratically declares- Conrad's other mistress- a "vile whore".
