Revenge finally returns tonight and can we just say? Hardest. Wait. Ever!
So what's in store for season two? Well, you saw the spoiler bomb we just dropped about a bisexual love triangle, right!? So juicy! And, we've got all the latest scoop on season two.
Plus, even if you watched every episode of Emily's (Emily VanCamp) journey of vengeance last TV season, you probably need a quick refresher on all of the craziness that went down in season one. We are here to help. Here's the nitty gritty on what you need to know:
WHAT WE LEARNED
Plane Crashes and Drug Overdoses: Man, the Grayson family did not have an easy go of it in the finale. First, Hamptons Queen Bee Victoria (Madeleine Stowe), dead-set on revealing the truth about David Clarke's (James Tupper) innocence and her ex-husband Conrad's (Henry Czerny) misdoings, seemingly went down in a plane crash (a bomb will do that). Oh, and Charlotte (Christa B. Allen) decided to pop a pill...or twenty and was found unconscious by her already distraught father.
Two Relationships End: After learning that Emily kissed Jack (Nick Wechsler), Daniel (Joshua Bowman) ended his engagement to Emily, who was finally ready to be with her childhood love and tell him who she really is. Too bad the missing Amanda (Margarita Levieva) got there first and revealed a big ol' baby bump and proclaimed Jack the baby daddy. Woe is Em.
Mommy Dearest: While the audience was led to believe that Emily's mysterious mother had died very early on in her life, we found out in the finale that Mama Clarke is alive and well. (Maybe not mentally healthy, however.) We learned that the Americon initiative behind David Clarke's death could also be behind her disappearance and that Victoria knows she's alive.
WHAT LIES AHEAD
A Wedding and a Funeral: Much like season one's flashforward to Emily and Daniel's engagement party, season two will kick off with another big event gone awry in a flashforward to a wedding. Sources tell us exclusively that the big event will have to do with Jack's beloved boat, The Amanda, and someone being tied to it. Eeek!
A Face-Off: Of course, Victoria is not dead. Come on now, you thought a little bomb could wipe her out? Psh! "She's not dead," Bowman tells us. "You can't kill off Victoria!" Alas, Conrad's girlfriend Lydia did not survive the crash. In the new season, Victoria will face off against Emily's mother, set to be played by Jennifer Jason Leigh. "My understanding is we're antagonistic toward each other," Stowe says. And we're hearing that the character definitely has a screw loose, so Victoria better watch her well-dressed back.
New Love Interests: Not only is one of Emily's former flames (played by British actor Barry Sloane) reappearing to further complicate her life (and we're hearing he's a pretty major love interest, by the way), but fan favorite Nolan (Gabriel Mann) will also be getting a love interest...a female one named Padma! And a male one. And if you have done the math, then ding-ding-ding! You know who's stuck in the middle of the bisexual love triangle. It's Nolan, of course.
Oh, and Daniel and Ashley (Ashley Madekwe) will be hooking up in the beginning of season two. We're kind of grossed out by that, but maybe we'll learn to live with it. Or enjoy watching Ems tear her apart.
The new season of Revenge premieres Sunday, Sept. 30, at 9 p.m. on ABC.
