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."
This is good news for Emily Thorne.

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.

Emily's mom is alive! Amanda is pregnant! But is Victoria really dead? Ever since Revenge's literally explosive Season 1 finale, which saw Queen Grayson's private plane blow up, fans have been clamoring to know just whether the woman they love to hate has really thrown her last Hamptons soiree. Although our money is on a last-minute switcheroo, star Madeleine Stowe was one of only two cast members not present for a special set visit held for reporters Thursday as part of the Television Critics Association fall TV previews. "I think you have to tune in to see how we handle that," creator and executive Mike Kelley said. Added star Gabriel Mann: "She's not saying anything. She hasn't been around. We haven't seen her." Although they were mum about Victoria, Kelley and the show's cast shared 10 other juicy spoilers for the new season.

Is there anything you can tell us about the Revenge finale? — Ginny
NATALIE: Can you hear me now? No? That's basically the problem in the season finale. "Dropped calls!" Connor Paolo teases. "The importance of picking up the phone when people call!" Adds Gabriel Mann: "Sometimes it might be real important!" What does it all mean? What's in Nolan's immediate future? "A lot of blood," Mann says. Gulp!
