Revenge Season 2: What's Ahead?

at . Comments

In a word, when it comes to last night's Revenge season finale: OEmG.

In three words: Seriously, now what?!?

Following a concluding episode that proved the Vampire Diaries isn't the only network drama that can shock and stun with its twists and turns, we're left with a number of questions to ponder. Foremost among them...

Is Victoria Grayson a goner? I can't imagine so. It's a pretty well known rule in television that when you don't see the body of a main, supposedly deceased character, said character is not actually deceased.

Did the plane actually blow up? It's safe to assume. How and when did Victoria exit prior to take-off? We'll have to wait until September to find out.

Is Charlotte Grayson a goner? Again, it's unlikely. I was a little confused on how Conrad found her body - what what he doing at Grayson Manor? - but I'm guessing he called 911 and we'll find his troubled daughter in the hospital to start season two.

Is Amanda carrying Jack's child? No frickin way. Not that I mind her deception, though. Can't say I'm a big fan of Jack and Emily getting together. Consider this totally-ridiculous-yet-not-completely-implausible-scenario: Takeda impregnated Amanda after he grabbed her from the beach and is behind this grand manipulation because he wants Emily to stay on task. No? Hello? Anyone?

What is Americon Initiative? New characters, new conspiracies, new stories that sensibly build on what we learned throughout season one. I love the reveal that there's a whole lot going on beyond the Grayson set-up of David Clarke.

What the heck is up with Emily's mother? It's one thing to fake a death in order to protect your family. It's another to remain away when your husband is framed, imprisoned and murdered; and your daughter locked up in a detention center.

Mrs. Thorne has A LOT of explaining to do and the reasons for her disappearance ought to open up countless new storylines for Emily and company.

UPDATE, 5/25: In a series of post-finale interviews, producer Mike Kelley has offered a few answers/teases to these questions. For instance:

  • Season two will open with both a wedding and a death on the premiere.
  • Either Victoria, Lydia or Charlotte is, in fact, dead.
  • We'll meet members of the Initiative, along with members from Conrad's former family, the wife and kids he had prior to meeting Victoria.
  • Yes, Amanda is pregnant. But is it Jack's? That's another story the show will get into.
  • Emily's (uncast) mother is considered a "psychologically damaged woman" and Emily's search for her will be a "driving force" of season 2.

UPDATE, 6/13: Margarita Levieva has signed a deal that assures viewers will see Amanda Clarke on at least seven season two episodes.

UPDATE, 6/23: We've now also learned that Victoria's mother will show up on Season 2.

UPDATE, 7/4: Revenge is also casting for Daniel's half-brother, Conrad's son from his first marriage. He may get involved romantically with Emily.

UPDATE, 7/18: The show is also seeking actors/actresses for the role of a doctor and the role of Ashley's new protege.

UPDATE, 7/19: Jennifer Jason Leigh has been cast as Emily's mother!

UPDATE, 7/26: A female love interest in being cast for Nolan; Daniel WILL get involved with Ashley romantically; and Revenge will premiere on September 30.

UPDATE, 8/2: Revenge is casting for a detective and a news reporter and it looks like there will be a Missing Person case at some point.

UPDATE, 8/13: Michael Nardelli has been cast as Trey, a misfit who gets Declan in trouble of some kind.

I would love to know if there will be a Season 3 for Revenge, it has been one of the best on the TV. I have followed it from day one and I love the characters, the twists and the turns, the suspense the drama and the intrigue. It"s like a long puzzle that is so fascinating to watch, please don"t let this be the end forever. Thank you for a great series.


Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It's simple,
yet effective. A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you've done a very good
job with this. Also, the blog loads very fast for
me on Internet explorer. Exceptional Blog!Beauty and the Beast Season 1 Episode 4 Basic Instinct


when on earth they gonna start showing season 2 ??


I confess - against my will and better judgement I have gotten sucked into this series. Don't agree with the comments re. Ashley - she definitely deserves her place in the series and I think will make things interesting - we haven't seen yet how sneaky she can get. Plus it is VERY white in the Hamptons without her. I find fauxamanda very tedious but if Emily is ever to redeem herself (shed her ruthlessness and earn the love of Jack) she will have to make amends with her. In the playbacks of David Clark he looks too naive to be part of a plot in his own 'murder' - it doesn't ring true to me and would steal Emily's deserved crown as ice maiden. Nolan straight? I guess he hasn't been wearing his colourful suits towards the end of the series, so maybe it's angling that way, though I did love his campy archness. And is Victoria blown to pieces? I doubt it - who could replace her cunning delivered through that unnerving smile and somehow elicit moments of sympathy. Charlotte dead? I wouldn't miss her. Looking forward to all the characters having more breadth in series 2. Be good x


So glad I'm not the only person who doesn't see the chemistry between jack and emily and wants Emily and Daniel together!! Also it's silly that fake Amanda thinks she can get away with saying that jack is the father of a baby he didn't father, it's so easy to do a paternity test! Lydia's dead, she's outlived her use. Emily's mom is a conundrum, I think she knew too much about AI and was institutionalised. Also David Clarke is dead otherwise everything Emily's done is for naught


If Ashley and Daniel hook up for good ill be so upset I'll stop watching We all want Emily and Daniel together
Before he was pushed into the family business he was Devine. Emily is the 1 to set him down the right path and manipulate him.
I honestly feel sick at knowing Ashley and Daniel will be together.,
I'm sure all us girls watch the series party for Emily and Daniel
I hope they end up back together and the Ashley thing is a rebound thing
If anything Victoria never would of wanted Ashley and Daniel together she would even prefer Emily over Ashley


so I'm addicted to Revenge.....Nolan Ross xoxo!totally excited for S2...


Am in love with revenge. I wounder when it will be out in uganda! I love daniel and emily as a cauple. Emily should love daniel for real.


when does it start in australia? i'm so excited!!!

Revenge Quotes

My father once wrote, always question where your loyalty lies. The people you trust will expect it, your greatest enemies will desire it and those you treasure the most will without fail, abuse it.

Emily Thorne

Upon embarking upon a path of revenge, Confucius warns that one should dig two graves. Confucius was right. The second of the two graves was meant for me. I was only saved by my father's infinite love. I know now that revenge only brings darkness. I couldn't see the light until I considered my father's advice to try and forgive. It's not easy but my father once said that nothing worth doing ever is. Well, with one exception.
