Spoiler Alert: Stop reading if you have not yet watched Sunday's Revenge!
After a nearly five-month wait, Sunday's Revenge finally revealed that the identity of...
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.

Remember when the Hamptons used to be a lovely place to escape to during the summer months? Free of all the stresses of big-city life, free of crowds and crime and...murrrderrr?
All that changed last season when Emily Thorne...
Just how long can Revenge's Emily Thorne keep her identity a secret, especially when her thought-to-be-dead mom comes back into the picture?
The last time we saw Emily (Emily VanCamp), she thought every piece of evidence that could prove her father's innocence had gone up in flames with the plane carrying Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe). As she stood in shock, Emily's best friend Nolan (Gabriel Mann) dropped another bomb by showing her a video not only incriminating the Graysons, but revealing the mother she thought dead was actually alive. In the upcoming season, premiering Sunday at 9/8c on ABC, Emily will find her long-lost mom, but will continue to painstakingly lie about her identity to keep everyone from finding out she's really Amanda Clarke.
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.
