TV Equals: "The need for stakes on a drama cannot be understated. Things need to be happening, building, for an audience to remain interested in a show. The problem Revenge is facing right now is that, with the driving force behind four seasons wrapped up, there’s still no clue where things are going to go next. Really, if “Bait” is any indication, it seems like the show is just going to be about life in the Hamptons. And I don’t know if that’s a show the original fan base is going to be invested in."
