Revenge to Air Aiden-Centric Episode

at . Comments

Introduced briefly, but not figuring prominently into the Revenge Season 2 premiere was Aiden, Takeda’s other student played by Barry Sloane. Soon enough, we can expect this mysterious character to take on a bigger role.

Executive producer Mike Kelley tells TV Line that an upcoming episode of the ABC drama will fill in the blanks, showing viewers how he and Emily know each other and what specifically bonds them. And that's not all.

With Daniel and Ems “on the outs” and Jack unavailable, “There’s an opening” for him, “But she’s not the most receptive. [Aiden] has a lot of ground to make up, because he did something that’s very hard for her to forgive.”

Hmm. Emily's right hand man is also not a fan.

Aiden on Revenge

As teased by Gabriel Mann in his interview with TV Fanatic last week, Kelley says Aiden drives a wedge between our favorite dynamic duo: “This character has come in and stolen his girl, so [Nolan] doesn’t love him.”

It's not clear exactly when his backstory will be revealed, but he appears in a great deal of photos from "Confidence", the third episode of the season. Follow the link to view those, then tell us in the comments below:

Are you excited to learn more about Aiden? Will he figure into Emily's life romantically? Is he the body in the ocean?

I totally want him to be the dead man on the boat.He's a very unwelcome complication.


He ups the hotness factor and there was definite chemistry between him and Emily!


give me the deets.. on Aiden..


Normally i dislike episodes of shows that focus on new characters but i know this show will make it work, not to mention they have a great British actor in Barry Sloane.


Yes, because he just pop out of nowhere so we need more information about him.


I'm glad we'll get to know about him and how he and Emily met.

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.
