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...

Revenge Season Finale Pic

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.

k together their relationship would be just embarrassing.
Btw, I'm not american or english so if you find any grammatically incorrect sentence get over yourself and ignore it.


Am I the only one to think Nolan has feelings for Emily? In the first episode I never could have imagine them to be more than just 'partners in crime' but at the end of episode 21 and 22 something changed.The way he looks at her, just everything is a bit different. Even though there's a age difference I still hope they'll find their way together. After the last two episodes of season 1 I'm not a huge Jack and Emily shipper anylonger. Now that Amanda is back he will be with her and not Emily. Seems like he forgot what happened between the two of them. I mean they kissed and she was with him when Sammy died. You just can't easily remove those memories. And it's so obvious daniel and ashley are going to hook up. I never really could get myself to like her. She's a fake person which annoys me. I don't even see her storyline going anywhere. As a matter of fact the show doesn't need this character. But well, hopefully she's going to help Daniel to get over Emily. If Emily and Daniel got back together their relationship would be just embarrassing. Therefore I ship Nolan and Emily. They've the most chemistry. Btw, I'm not american or english so you might find some grammatically incorrect sentences.Sorry for that.


It is Emily's wedding everyone - The producer has already stated that - and good god i hope she doesn't go back to Daniel!! He makes my skin crawl!


I am loving this show, i live in england and should be waiting for it too come on every monday but instead i downloaded all the episodes and watched them episode after episode. I am hoping Amanda is not pregnant with jacks baby, i have been wanting emily and jack to get together from day 1 and she tells him who she really is, and i am hoping david clarke is alive, so is victoria and charlotte, and that the white haired guy is in it with david and is a family member to emily, grandfather? uncle? maybe, At first i thought maybe victoria was emilys mother but then i remembered that david met her after he had emily, cant wait to see her mother if we will, My favourite characters are Emily, Jack and Nolan. ... I can not wait for season 2, feel like i can not wait till september, too hooked on to the show.


No one we know is going to be her mom she know what her moms looks like in one of the episodes she says I left my favorite picture of mom at the other house..


Could Emily's mum be the head of Americon initiative and be controlling the fates of every single one of the cast from the beginning of absolutely everything? I think the white haired man and David Clarke are together on this and that the whole stabbing of David Clarke was a set up for that tape so that Conrad could have been given the evidence from the white haired man that he had killed david and so the worlds media could think that David Clarke was infact dead?


Just a thought but why was victoria always so shifty and weird around amanda (now Emily) in all the flash backs of her as a child? Why didn't she want to meet her and why was she so intrigued by David Clarke on the very first time they met when they met at the new years party? Victoria is behind this in a major way about what happened to Amanda's mother, she either got rid of her, destroyed her in some way and seeing Amanda (Emily) as a child is too painful and makes her feel guilty... Or another thought she is Amanda's mother, she may have had a different identity etc before becoming Victoria Grayson. In one episode where there is a DNA test of the spoon of Amanda's DNA in comparison to charlottes, forgive me if I'm wrong but the investigator said 'there is an exact match'... that is impossible. The white haired man is either related to Amanda, knows her father very well and there was another plot between him and David Clarke, he maybe didn't even stab him but David plotted for it all to make it look like he had died on that video tape so the white haired man could show it to Conrad as proof that he did what he was asked! Therefore David Clarke could in fact be alive and well and be the head of the 'the initiative' (or whatever it is called, forgive me), he could be the head of all this and be controlling all the fates of those who did this to him in a much bigger plot for mental revenge.


I believe that david clark is alive and living in the protection program world.


OMG!thats the best 2012 series....i think lydia dies while viky and charlie appear in season two


i bet daniel and ashley are going to fall for each other!!! SOMEBODY NEEDS TO RUN HER AND HER LITTLE ASS OVER SO DANIEL AND EMILY CAN BE TOGETHER!!!!!!

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.
