RECAP: 'Revenge' Returns After Seven-Week Hiatus
Revenge fans officially emerged from the deep-seated withdrawal symptoms they'd suffered during the seven-week, mid-season hiatus of the popular ABC thriller / drama starring Emily VanCamp (pictured), 25, as Emily Thorne, the anonymous victim of the treacherous Victoria Grayson, portrayed by Madeleine Stowe, 53.
The show left off with Daniel (Joshua Bowman) being innocently accused of the murder of crazy Tyler (Ashton Holmes), and now that he's behind bars awaiting trial for the shooting, mommy Victoria is scrambling to pin the crime on anyone else in an effort to exonerate her son. Luckily, Stowe's Victoria is pretty skilled at such things, as the entire premise of Revenge is based on her framing Thorne's father for a heinous act of terrorism.
The episode, entitled "Justice," didn't see too much justice served just yet, but it did point the way to the identity of Emily's father's actual killer. Ya know, other than Victoria and her husband Conrad (Henry Czerny), who might have set the whole thing up, but wouldn't dream of getting their hands dirty from on high in the comfort of their pristine Hamptons home.
Episodes of Revenge will be all new until the end of the season. Catch Revenge at 10 p.m. on Wednesdays on ABC.
