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."
Whose days are numbered on Revenge? Viewers will find out by the end of Sunday's two-hour season finale.
"For the first time, one of our core cast members will not survive the season," executive producer Mike Kelley tells TVGuide.com.
As the season winds down, The Initiative is kicking its plan into high gear, staging a city-wide blackout that signals that something major is about to go down. But who is the group's target? And will the death be by its hands? Or will the victim — and the killer — come as a complete surprise? We rank each of the main cast members' odds for demise.
Can Revenge's Victoria and Emily find common ground? One of them seems to think so.
In this exclusive clip from Sunday's Season 2 finale (9/8c, ABC), Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) confronts Emily (Emily VanCamp) about her intentions for marrying Daniel (Josh Bowman).

"You will soon learn what a woman is willing to endure for appearances," she says. "Whatever your reasons for marrying him, you'll never convince me it's for love, and by and by you will grow tired of perpetuating this charade until one morning you will wake up hollow with nothing but regret and misery to fill your days."
Does talk of a loveless marriage sound familiar?
"You and I have more in common than either one of us cares to admit," Victoria adds.
Not an episode of Revenge goes by without at least one shocking backstab or well-played plan. It's no surprise, then, that game playing comes naturally to the three hunks who have spent the last two seasons competing for Emily Thorne's (Emily VanCamp) attentions on ABC's addictive drama.
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.
