"You'll see with this episode just how hideous a man Conrad Grayson is," Christa B. Allen, who plays the daughter to Conrad (Henry Czerny), tells TVGuide.com. "His actions in this episode really cement the idea that Charlotte will probably side with her mother."
It's the (second) mother of all castings on Revenge.
