Last night on Revenge we saw Victoria and Conrad remarry, but there were some complications, and Emily and Amanda tried to throw Mason Treadwell off their scent. Check out our Revenge recap to learn more.

Though the focus of the episode is mostly on Victoria and Conrad’s wedding, everything is set into motion with Emily and Amanda trying to throw Mason off their scent. Emily crafts a convincing story about having the burn scar on her back removed, which Mason takes from Amanda because Amanda also feeds him information about Gordon Murphy.

Mason, the investigative journalist and media hound that he is, discovers Gordon dead in his apartment, with one of Conrad’s cufflinks left behind. All of which was Emily’s doing. Mason calls the police, but then he calls Victoria to let her know that her husband might be spending their wedding night in jail. Victoria seems pretty pleased with the events unfolding.

So Victoria and Conrad prepare for their nuptials, and Conrad gives Victoria the classic pre-wedding gift of her very own handgun. We wonder when that will come into play again.

The ceremony goes off without a hitch while Treadwell and the police search the Graysons’ house for evidence against Conrad (which Emily made sure was there), and everyone is celebrating at Victoria and Conrad’s reception.

Aiden watches Emily
 

Emily gets an invite through Aiden, and Nolan and Padma also make the list. Padma talks to Daniel and tries to convince him that NolCorp doesn’t need the David Clarke records after all, and Daniel had discovered earlier that they were missing from Grayson Global’s system. Nolan later warns Padma that she’s poked a hornet’s nest that’s out of her league.

With all the dancing taking place, Daniel gets a hint from his mother that he might need to lead Grayson Global sooner than later, and it also gives Emily and Daniel a little alone time. Daniel reminisces about whether or not they could have made it work, but the potentially romantic moment is interrupted by the cops.

We liked Nolan’s reference to this move on Emily’s part as a “revenge all-star opportunity.”

Conrad is arrested
 

Conrad is arrested, and he thinks Victoria has something to do with it. She didn’t plan the arrest, but she did forget to mention that he’s being framed for Gordon’s murder. While in jail, Conrad gets a visit from Helen of Americon Initiative, and he agrees to an unknown favor in return for springing him from jail.

Kara Clarke is also doing her part to creep out Victoria, and it seems like she’ll be causing some problems in the future. She kept sneaking up on Victoria in her bedroom, and now Kara blames the Graysons for her husband’s (Gordon’s) murder. Victoria better watch her back with this one.

The youngest Grayson, Charlotte, decides not to attend her parents’ wedding, and instead helps Declan with the reopening of Jack’s bar. Things seem to be going well for Jack under Kenny’s ownership, even though the bar was sold under questionable terms. Maybe Kenny really does just want to own a bar. We’re still keeping an eye on him though.

Jack shares a nice moment with Kara Clarke during the opening ceremony, and it helps him to realize what he really wants. After creating a romantic scene for Amanda on the boat (the Amanda), Jack proposes and Amanda says yes.

We have to admit, they are adorable together, but the happiness is bound to get complicated because we think Amanda will want to reveal her true identity to Jack.

We’re also digging Jack’s new haircut.

Mason Treadwell still seems to be searching for answers, and after Victoria calls Emily a “juvie girl who cleaned up nicely,” Mason starts to connect the dots. What will he do with this information? We’re also still confused how helping frame Conrad is “the beginning of the end” for Mason, as Emily put it earlier.

Mason Treadwell
 

We just hope she can get Mason out of the picture before he reveals her whole scheme.

Aiden and Emily also share a romantic moment toward the end of the episode, which included wine and a fire, but Emily continues to push Aiden away. He says he won’t give up on her, and that she has to trust him, but we wonder if he could be messing with her.

We hope not, because we really like Aiden. He’s a good match for Emily.

Our Revenge recap covered a lot from last night’s episode, “Illusion,” but our most pressing question still deals with Emily’s identity.

Will Mason reveal Emily’s entire revenge plot?

In interesting but potentially brilliant casting news, comedian Amy Schumer will be taking on the role of Barbie for a live-action film.

Take a moment to soak in the news. Now revel in the idea. This could be awesome.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amy Schumer is not only leading the project on screen, but she’ll also have an influence on the script.

In interesting but potentially brilliant casting news, comedian Amy Schumer will be taking on the role of Barbie for a live-action film.

Take a moment to soak in the news. Now revel in the idea. This could be awesome.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amy Schumer is not only leading the project on screen, but she’ll also have an influence on the script.

Last year, Sony had their pick of three complete scripts for a live-action Barbie movie. Of those three, they chose Hilary Winston’s. Now that Schumer is on board, THR says to expect her and her sister, Kim Caramele, to rewrite Winston’s original idea.

The plot, given that Schumer doesn’t change the major details, “begins in a perfect land of Barbies where one woman slowly awakens to the fact that she doesn’t fit it. She is expelled from the idealistic land and journeys to the real world, where she discovers that being unique is an asset.”

The outlet also addresses the fact that Mattel has had to deal with plenty of criticism regarding body image and race when it comes to the Barbie toys. Schumer’s casting is a great way to speak to some of those issues, and will hopefully provide a positive and uplifting message by the movie’s end.

There will be, of course, some hesitation given Schumer’s previous work. One only has to look as far as Trainwreck and Inside Amy Schumer to see her comedy is often brutally honest and raunchy. Barbie would be shocked.

But Schumer is an actress, after all, and a brilliant comedian. For this “contemporary spin on beauty, feminism and identity,” she seems like just the right fit.

What do you think of Amy Schumer as Barbie?

To entertain himself (and his fans!), Chris Pratt has been updating his Instagram with funny photos and captions from the tour.

There’s some real gold in there, but the best part is when he realizes that fans really want to see some pictures of Jennifer Lawrence — who doesn’t have her own social media accounts — and proceeds to very decidedly not include her!

Update: He did it again.
