Tonight’s the night, y’all! Revenge is coming back (so is The Good Wife!) and I’m hoping for a crazy episode to start off the second part of the second season. The other day we got a sneak peek at the upcoming episode and today we have some more details about the upcoming season. Click inside for more!
Mike Kelley, the creator of Revenge sat down with TV Line to talk about what Revengers can expect from the new episodes, which start tonight:
This Sunday marks the return of ABC’s Revenge (at 9/8c) — and the beginning of a return to form for erstwhile Big Bad Victoria Grayson.
“My big goal [for the rest of] this season is to reset the revenge element between Emily and Victoria, and toreally solidify Victoria as our villain once again,” creatorMike Kelley shares with TVLine. “She’s quite gray in a lot of ways this year. She’s evolving, which is good, but when her back is truly against a wall, she’s capable of some pretty terrible things.”
And terrible things we’ll see throughout this latest batch of episodes, which find “Emily and Victoria forced to work together for their own purposes — even [as they are] keeping secrets from one another,” Kelley previews. Ultimately, he adds: “Everything we’re [currently] doing between the two of them is leading toward greater conflict in order to reset and refuel the series for some time to come.”
Also receiving a slight tweak in the second half of Revenge‘s sophomore run is the increasingly twisty — and at times convoluted — Initiative plot. Kelley is firm in his belief that there “needs to be a heavy, dark force” on Revenge — which this evil corporation (?) no doubt is — yet concedes that “the show was never meant to be about a grand conspiracy in Alias or Homeland terms. It’s a smaller story about a girl out for vengeance to get the people who killed her father. What she really needs is the identities of those people and she’s going do anything she can to get them; that’s what her goal is here.”
You can read the rest of the interview here. Kelley promises that everything will tie together, and I know we have plenty of questions from the last episode that I reeeeallly want answered. I’m so curious to see what happens with Daniel and ‘Emily’! From the way the previews look, it seems like she and Aiden plan to team up against him… but what if they fall back in lurve anyway?! Agh, who knows with this show? I think mainly, I wanna see what Victoria’s up to. I miss that crazy bish and she’s always got some ish for us!
Hope y’all get to catch tonight’s episode, and I’ll see you tomorrow at the first recap of 2013!
And shouts-out to fellow-Revenger and PITNBR blaqfury! So good to have you back :)
