Straight up: Is Emily Thorne going to die on Revenge? — Mark
Well, the series finale is titled “Two Graves,” so her survival odds are not looking great at the moment. “It is the end of a journey, but it’s a journey that’s been so darkly taken,” EP Sunil Nayar tells me. “How do we want her to feel at the end of this journey, and how do we want the audience to feel about the nature of this journey? Do we want this to be a tale where people think, ‘I should go do that,’ or do we want people to think, ‘I could go do that, but there’s a serious price to be paid by doing it!’? At the end of the day, there’s no getting out of this clean, whether that means you’re dead, deeply wounded or carrying this darkness with you. You’ll see that everybody in the show is affected by the world they’ve gotten themselves into and the darkness that’s hard to pull out.”
ABC is giving Revenge the red Sharpie treatment.
After four twisted seasons, the primetime soap will reach its conclusion in the May 10 season series finale, TVLine has confirmed.
Though the writing has been on the wall for some time — star Madeleine Stowe’s recent departure felt like the nail in the coffin — showrunner Sunil Nayar told TVLine that he wasn’t necessarily planning for this to be Revenge‘s swan song.
“To say we’re approaching this as the last season would be wrong,” he said in December. “But we’re not scared to make choices that will make people ask ‘Where is this going?’”
Now that the finale has been shot and screened, Nayar tells EW.com it’s a different story: “We can officially tell our fans that this will be the end of the story. … We’ve been talking to the network and we all just wanted to make sure that we felt very confident.”
It’s been a wonderful four years with you all and I wouldn’t change any of it for the world. So thank you.
It was the blast heard ’round the Hamptons on Sunday’s Revenge, as Grayson Manor was utterly destroyed in a series of fiery explosions. But did Victoria really go down in flames, once and for all?

Question: Any word on what’s happening with Revenge? The last few episodes have all felt very series-finale leaning. Will it be renewed or cancelled? And if we do get a Season 5, is there a major revamp in store? —Sean
Ausiello: Based on what I’m hearing about the finale, there would have to be a major revamp if the show returns for a fifth season. Actually, forget revamp — there’d have to be a whole new show.
Question: Ever since Emily VanCamp tweeted that picture of herself with Tom Amandes, I’ve been freaking out over the impending Everwood reunion. What do you know? — Tim
Ausiello: Oh, we know quite a bit, Tim, including that the circumstances of their meeting might not be as clear-cut as they seemed in VanCamp’s tweet. “I know that it appears Amanda Clarke is in prison garb in a courtroom, but in regards to this show, it really means nothing,” Revenge showrunner Sunil Nayar advises. “It could mean she’s been arrested, or it could mean she’s undercover, or it could mean she’s pulling a play on someone.” All right, Tim, take your pick!
Question: Revenge is on fire this season! Do you have any scoop? —Julius
Ausiello: I don’t think you realize how perfect your question is, Julius. Episode 20, appropriately titled “Aftermath,” deals with the fallout from a devastating fire at a yet-unknown Hamptons residence. What I do know, however, is that both Emily and David will try to enter the home looking for answers — and they’ll both be turned away by the authorities.
As we delve deeper into the second half of Revenge‘s fourth — and potentially final — season, we find ourselves wondering: Will everyone soon know Emily’s secret? How will characters’ loyalties shift? And, of course, who will live to find out?
TVLine caught up with four of Revenge‘s key players for the scoop…
JACK V. BLACK | Is Daniel saving a spot for Jack in Revenge heaven? Nick Wechsler tells TVLine we should be “fairly worried” about the Hamptons’ new rookie cop, as Malcolm Black is “going to come after whoever it is that [killed Kate]. I’ll be honest, he’s coming after me. He’s coming after all of us.” As for Emily, Wechsler says Jack will be very much involved in rescuing her from Malcolm’s clutches. “It’s a team effort,” he explains. “Jack will be damned before he lets anything happen to her.”
BODY COUNT | Looking for comfort about Jack’s fate? You won’t get it from Gabriel Mann. The real-life Nolan Ross tells TVLine, “Any one of us could be gone without proper circumstance. They have no qualms about anyone dying on this show. … We’re going real, real, real big this year. It feels like anything further from this show [beyond Season 4] would need to be a variation on what this is. Whether that involves these same characters, or new characters, none of us really know.” As for who might soon be six feet under, Mann says, “It’s a big one. Our creator, Mike Kelley, envisioned the end of the series as a beach covered with the bodies of our characters, with Emily and Victoria climbing over them to get to each other.”

Ratings be damned, I’m loving Revenge more than ever. Have anything for the faitfhul fans? –Deb
“There’s something hugely big for Nolan that we’re literally on the precipice of,” Gabriel Mann reveals. “I think it changes the course of Season 4 for him.” Mann hints that it might have something to do with a certain new houseguest, as his character is “going to delve into Louise’s world and see all the baggage she brings with her.” As for Nolan’s love life (or lack thereof) this season, Mann hints at a major turn of the tide: “This season, I thought Nolan needed to take a little bit of a break … but [his love life] is not going to be dry for a whole lot longer.”
“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.
