“Intel” – Emily and Victoria learn that information is the most dangerous weapon while Nolan offers up information of his own in order to salvage his reputation, on “Revenge,” SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 30 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Tommy Flanagan, Sons of Anarchy‘s Chibs, is headed to network TV after Sons concludes its run in December.
EW has confirmed that Flanagan will play a villain on ABC’s Revenge. TVLine first reported that Flanagan will be playing Malcolm Black, who is described as a “a high-functioning psychopath with a long memory for those who have crossed him.”
Flanagan will first appear on Revenge during its midseason premiere.
Reenie: On my agenda: Revenge scoop from you!
Well played, but don’t you mean your “revengenda?” Sorry, couldn’t resist. But feel free to pencil in a funeral soon as death is coming to the Hamptons…again! “There probably is going to be a death this season,” Josh Bowman told us. “There should be.” And when asked if Daniel could be the one to bite the dust, Bowman answered, “Let’s hope not!”
Are David and Emily really going to reunite on Revenge? — Nikki
Yes, the talk of this week’s episode is Emily finding out that her father is still alive—don’t worry, the promos did not deceive you—though their reunion won’t necessarily be an easy one. But what Revenge fans should worry about is how deeply Louise (Elena Satine) is trying to embed herself into the Grayson family. When getting in Victoria’s good graces doesn’t work, she’ll set her sights elsewhere.
Question: Any scoop on what’s coming up for my favorite Revenge character, Nolan? —Keith
Ausiello: Well, Keith, your favorite character is going to make a bold move on Sunday’s episode, and it’s not going to sit well with Ms. Emily Thorne. The ever-private Emily wants to keep last week’s intruder incident under wraps — especially from a certain cop friend of hers — forcing Nolan to go behind her back to keep her safe (and we all know how much Emily loves when people go behind her back).
Question: Any spoilers on Revenge? —Ferlay
Ausiello: Well, Ferlay, how about a nasty spoiler about a certain estranged father? Sunday’s episode reveals a habit of David Clarke’s that we’ve never seen before. No one’s seen it before, in fact, and something tells me he wouldn’t want Victoria catching him in the act.
What’s that saying, “Hell hath no fury like a Hamptons Ice Queen beaten with a shovel and involuntarily checked into a mental hospital?”
All we know is that Emily might want to watch her back as Revenge‘s fourth season gets underway, because in the following exclusive trailer, Victoria sounds like she’s out for blood.
While the sometime Mrs. Grayson narrates, the video recaps the history of Em’s presence in the Hamptons, from meeting Victoria at the art auction on the boat (hi, Ashley!) to the infamous helicopter incident of 2014 (duck, Pascal!) and more. (If the video seems familiar, it’s because it’s an extended version of one released in August.)
Then, we get fleeting glimpses of what’s in store when the ABC drama returns on Sunday, Sept. 28 (10/9c), and the action seems to include — among other visuals — Nolan being carried around like a god, Charlotte about to leap off a building and an unconscious Emily about to burn to death.
Beth: I’ll take anything you’ve got on Revenge!
Another death will rock the Hamptons! While fans of all the series regulars can breathe a sigh of relief, a pretty important figure in the Hamptons (who had ties to Conrad) will bite the dust…leading to a whole lot of speculation surrounding the mysterious circumstances surrounding his (yes, it’s a male character that dies) death.
Step aside, Emily Thorne; there’s a new Revenge-r in town.
ABC on Friday unveiled the key art for Revenge‘s upcoming fourth season, which finds the soap’s reigning queens turning the Hamptons into their own personal battleground.
And considering the season’s tagline (“What goes around comes around”), we’re not sure which woman should be more afraid!
Check out the full-sized image, then drop a comment with your hopes for Season 4.
Revenge is dropping its flash-forward gimmick in Season 4 and adopting “a whole new attitude” — beginning with Victoria — showrunner Sunil Nayar tells TVLine. “You’re going to find her in a very new state of mind…. There’s almost a calm about her.” That said, she’s still focused on taking down Emily, who’s “trying to move past what’s happened to her,” including Aiden’s death and the supposed completion of her original revenge mission. “Dead” David’s return will certainly rock her world, though the show will “roll him out pretty slowly” so the audience can savor everyone’s “different, wonderful” reactions. His dynamic with Emily, specifically, is “not what you’re going to be expecting.” Meanwhile, the dead girl left in Daniel’s bed at the end of Season 3 “will lead to a significant change” in the Hamptons’ golden boy. (The fate of his father, by the way, will be confirmed “in the first couple minutes” of the season premiere.) As for Nolan? We’ve got two words: Boat. Party.
BONUS SPOILER | Prepare yourselves for Jack 2.0. “The audience will be knocked out by what he has done between seasons,” Nayar says.
RETURN DATE | Sunday, Sept. 28 at 10/9c (ABC)
Got anything on Revenge? — Ciara
You may be asking yourself why Jack suddenly becomes friends with a cop (Client List’s Brian Hallisay) after finding himself on the wrong side of the law last season. That’s easy: Jack is actually putting on a badge. However, despite his new position, Charlotte has been unable to forgive him for his part in her kidnapping, which will put them at odds at the annual Memorial Day party. (Oh yes, the party is still happening, it’s just being hosted by someone else while Victoria is in the loony bin.)
