Revenge is on their winter hiatus, and I need something just to get me by until it returns. Got anything good? –Drew
In the winter finale we got a first look at Conrad’s ex-wife Stevie (played by Gail O’Grady), but just you wait until she starts mixing and mingling with others. “Needless to say, she and Victoria are at odds, because Victoria came in just as Stevie was on the way out,” Henry Czerny told me. “But yeah, she’s a firecracker, and the electricity that you’ll see between Stevie and Jack — yes, Stevie and Jack — and between Stevie and Victoria will be fantastic.”
Shawn: Any scoop on Revenge? It’s so good this season!
Flashbacks, ahoy! In a juicy trip to the past, we’ll see a younger Conrad and Pascal (akaOliver Martinez!) and learn all about the history between the two men and Victoria, a ballerina at the time, who is being pursued by both businessmen. Too bad Conrad’s wife, Stevie (played by Gail O’Grady in the present-day, as we exclusively reported), isn’t too thrilled about that.
Revenge returns with all new episodes on March 9th.
Sunday March 9th, a new time, new threats, new alliances, and a new Revengenda.
Love For Charlotte: Now that some time has passed since Declan died, it’s time for Charlotte to move on. “We have a love interest coming up for her,” Harberts revealed. “A really interesting character that’s also going to get pulled through the Nolan story, a character who is not normally who you might think of in terms of Charlotte’s boyfriends. He’s got sort of a rough back story but so we’re going to start developing that relationship around episode fifteen.”
Fighting in the Open: Emily won’t be able to pull off the sweet/innocent act any more, Harberts explained: “Victoria and all of the Grayson’s feel like they have Emily’s number and so what’s really fun about this episode is they can finally sort of fight out in the open a little bit. We can finally do scenes where these two women who’ve always been so veiled and politely cutting with each other can really be honest with each other.”
And while Victoria doesn’t know the whole story yet, at least she knows her long-thought suspicions about her now-daughter-in-law weren’t off the mark by much.
“Emily has got a lot of work to do to kind of get back into their good graces and frankly the Grayson’s,” Harberts said. “Their attitude is ‘We don’t believe you. No matter what comes out of your mouth, we don’t believe you.’”
As Daniel gets darker…: For good reason, Josh Bowman’s character has many reasons to be a bit pissed off. “He’s much angrier and certainly also feels like he’s sort of on to what Emily’s doing,” Harberts said, “so watching that relationship get to a point where they are now at each other’s throats has been super fun.”
In fact, watch for some Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Wolff type battles between the not-so-happy newlyweds, especially since Emily is sure to use her knowledge that Daniel shot her to her advantage at the right time.
…Jack will get lighter: Mr. Porter has been through the wringer for awhile now, so he is “getting to a point where he’s going to take a big leap with Margaux in this episode,” Harberts teased. “Nick Wechsler’s had a nice little haircut which may seem very superficial but it’s a nice way to show that he’s moving on. We’re lightening up his wardrobe and at the end of this episode he and Margaux make a nice sort of life decision. So we’re still developing that relationship.”
Patrick IS Victoria’s Son: When he first appeared, Patrick seemed horrified at some of the action of the Hamptons’ residents, but it hasn’t taken him long to become very Revenge-y and show that he is definitely his mother’s son.
“You do see him [and] the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. You see him react to certain situations in a way that she would and you know it’s interesting because she didn’t raise him,” Hartley explained. “She knew him as a baby and then he was gone and now she knows him as a man. So it’s not like he got that from being raised by her, it’s just sort of in his blood.”
Watch out for Nico: Takeda’s daughter, obviously still in love with Aiden, has one other thing on her mind: revenge for whomever killed her father. She doesn’t know (yet) that that was, in fact, Aiden.
“The person who should watch their backs most is whoever she decides has killed her father,” Jacobsen told me. “Her focus has become pretty unilateral by this point but it really takes root in this episode, that sort of penchant for vengeance. Prior to this she was a little more distracted by Aiden but now she’s really starting to hone in.”
Harberts added: “This character is really hardcore. She’s got a very strong point of view and a very cut and dry point of view and a very obsessive point of view when it comes to Aiden, adding that Nolan isn’t a fan of Nico:
“I think Nolan would like to toss that baby out with the bath water immediately. I mean, at this point, Nolan’s home has become like a halfway house for psychos and so far he’s concerned.”
Barry Sloane explained how the dynamic between Nico, Aiden and Emily is an intriguing one: “It’s interesting to have another one of that type of energy and what Stephanie’s brought into the show so far is a very different energy than we have on the show which is always important when you come is what I try to do with Aiden when I joined the show. When you come in new, try and find something that’s not already there.”

Sasha: Revenge me. Now!
A please would be nice, but we’ll let this one slide just once. Nolan (Gabriel Mann) is getting a new houseguest. Look for Javier, a young lad who just happens to be an accomplished hacker, to move into Nolan’s pad for quite a while…he’s under house arrest there.
I’ve added 12 High Quality pictures of Emily and Barry on the set today to the gallery. Check them out by clicking the thumbnails below:
EXCLUSIVE: Meet Margaux’s father! On the heels of ABC’s Revengepromoting Karine Vanasse to regular for next season, the soapy drama has tapped Olivier Martinez to play her dad. The French actor will recur as Pascal LeMarchal, Margaux LeMarchal’s (Vanasse) media magnate father. He is a cutthroat businessman and has a competitive history with Conrad (Henry Czerny), and an even more complicated one with Victoria (Madeleine Stowe). This marks the biggest US TV commitment to date for the film actor Martinez. In heading to U.S. broadcast television, Martinez joins his wife, Halle Berry, who is set to star in CBS’ summer drama series Extant.
Question: Got any Patrick/Nolan-related Revenge scoop? —Tommy
Ausiello: A guy from Nolan’s past will turn up later this season, and he sounds like trouble with a capital T that rhymes with P that stands for Prison. His name is Javier, he’s an accomplished hacker just like Nolan, and he’s on parole from the clink. He also needs a place to crash, and wouldn’t you know, he lists Nolan’s killer crib as his house-arrest address. Casting for the recurring, twentysomething role is underway.
