The song: Lissie, “Nothing Else Matters”
The episode: “Duress” (111)
The hook: With the take-down of mentally unbalanced con man Tyler by authorities, it seemed all the monsters in the Hamptons had been dispatched. And yet! Illinois folk rocker Lissie’s growling cover of Metallica’s 1992 original stood beside a montage that saw “Amanda” realizing there is more to the story of David Clark, Emily snuggling Daniel as she realized her insinuation into his life is complete, and finally Victoria discovering she has soon-to-be-ex-husband Conrad on the hook for millions because she can render their prenup null and void. As a positively diabolical smile crept across Victoria’s face, Lissie lulled, “And nothing else matters.” In case you didn’t get the memo, this is Victoria’s world, and we’re just living in it. Some kind of monster, indeed.
Watch it! See what and who does matter in the Hamptons starting at 40:05 on Revenge‘s Hulu, then read about all the machinations leading up to this moment with Christian Blauvelt’s recap.
