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.

Oh the wedding is a flashforward! So it could be anybody.. emily & jack, emily & daniel, jack & amanda, even noel who found a girl or something idk !


If lydia is dead then it's not the wedding with conrad... Though I doubt he would wanna marry her after all this!
I don't think Victoria is dead though (very unlikely) + Conrad warned her... so I think she knew it would've been unsafe.
I think the wedding will be Emily and Daniel.. that she makes up with him?
though it would be sad to not see the Jack storyline go further :(
Or maybe Jack forced to marry Amanda because of the baby?
Who says it's a wedding that goes through? love this TV show! can't wait till september!


Kelli Williams from The Practice would be excellent as Emily's mother or
Portia De Rossi. I am only at the beginning watching in the UK (we are up to 3rd episode), but totally hooked. So I am skimming throughout some of the comments and article, though I have seen a few - OMG! x Please don't leave it too long in between series for us Brits, I hate big gaps and am totally lost without the Good Wife at the moment x


I think that Vikki Grayson, Charlotte and Lydia died thats what I think and that Emily's Mother is odd..and that Amanda is obviously pregnant with Jack's baby. THere is definitely more to the story so stop drawing all these stupid conclusions just wait till season 2 comes out and watch some other show while you are busy wrecking your brain. I recommend abc's Castle.


Emily is going to get together with Jack in the end. Daniel is going to get together with Ashley the opportunist because she "always has his back" and he feels that she will be loyal. (I can't stand Ashley!) Lydia is likely to be the one who is dead. Amanda's baby is Jack's but she will have a miscarriage. I hardly watch TV but was hooked with the first episode. I can't recall a show I have been addicted to like this one. How about Tea Leoni or Diane Lane at Emily's mother?


Firstly if u were paying attention it's Clarke with an e. and secondly yeah she did try and give the fake amanda her mothers identity but wanted to get her away from the clarke name e.g. used her mothers maiden name. No way is the baby going to turn out to be Jacks lots more to come from season 2 i think and i cant wait.


Ok. So. Victoria is def def definitely not dead.
I think lydia will die. Shes not a real important part of the story. But u no what i want to see hapen. I want em to kick ashleys ass. Shes soo annoying. I think Nolan's mom/aunt whatever she is, is a big part of the story.
I think her and the white haired guy no each other. I also think takeda is another huge part of the story. I think takeda got amanda preggers and sent her bck to jack when he did b cuz hes trying to keep emily on the right path. Unemotionaly involved. I love love love this series. Love the twists n turns. And bravo on the finale. Great way to keep the fans in suspense until s2. And great job on the music choice. @ the end when they start boarding the plane they play florence and the machine(seven devils). Great series all the way Around hope there's lots n lots of seasons to come. ----> :)


I think Emily's mother is the person behind Initiative. For all you know she is the mastermind of it all/


Can't wait for session 2 ........... hope "real" Amanda n Jack are together :)


how about nolan? will he find his love?
ahh.. i prefer emily with daniel :( so sad they're broke up

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

Jack: I'm all in.
Emily: Let's do this.
