After what many considered a disappointing sophomore season, Revenge's new showrunner is taking the show back to basics.
"Last season was very much about destiny, but it got pulled into so many different worlds and got so big and spectacular. So our goal this year is to really take a breath, slow it down and catch up with our characters where they are from where the season ended," executive producer Sunil Nayar tells TVGuide.com. "We're bringing everything back to the world of the Hamptons, and [we] really embrace the lush romance and the intrigue that is the Hamptons."

Sunday nights on ABC are downright deadly, and TVGuide.com has the exclusive first look at this Sunday's lethal lineup!
Over on Once Upon a Time, Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) is determined to kill Cora (Barbara Hershey), who killed her mother when she was just a girl. Will Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) be able to stop her? Plus:
Remember when Revenge was actually about Emily Thorne avenging her father's death and wrongful life sentence?
When the ABC series premiered last fall, viewers found their new guilty pleasure in watching the soapy, addictive drama that starred Emily VanCamp as an abandoned juvie alum-turned-fearless woman determined to stop at nothing to prove that her father David was not responsible for taking down Flight 197. Although Emily got caught up in a love triangle with Daniel (Josh Bowman) and Jack (Nick Wecshler) along the way, the show rarely veered from its main mission — and that red pen. But has Season 2 lost its way? With its complicated and confusing arcs, the addition of two main characters who aren't very likable — Aidan (Barry Sloane) and Kara (Jennifer Jason Leigh) — and a lack of action and actual vengeance, it seems like Revenge could use some help returning to its freshman season glory.

As Revenge's new hunk on the block, Barry Sloane knows his character, Aiden Mathis, may be walking on very thin ice that could crack come February. It doesn't help that creator Mike Kelley says Mathis "may play a part in what happened in the flash-forward with Jack's boat."
