For two seasons of Revenge, Emily Thorne's Machiavellian skills have been effective. With her slowly-but-surely strategy to get into the Grayson's lives, it's always been a pleasure to see how she emerge victorious in every secret agenda she plans.
But can the same asset work with Victoria's long lost son, Patrick Harper?
Hm. We've learned it's not going to be a walk in the park. As it turns out, Victoria is extremely devoted to Patrick. TV Line spoke to Emily Van Camp about Revenge's upcoming threat, read the spoiler details below:
He is really, really, really, really, really loved by his mom. Like, really loved. During the time-jump, mother and son “spent a lot of time together building a relationship, one that almost seems inappropriate when we first see them,” teases Emily VanCamp. “She’s just so in love with her son. It’s very bizarre.” Their close bond will make it tough for Emily to drive a wedge between them, which, as VanCamp reminds, is her character’s MO: ”The ultimate goal for Emily with Victoria is to turn her children against her. She’s successfully managing it with Daniel. You’ll start to see that she’s not so successfully managing it with Charlotte. And Patrick is the wild card. He’s going to be a very tricky person to turn, if she even can.”
In addition, the scoop most Revengers have been dying to know relating to Aiden Mathis has finally reached a conclusion. If it makes you feel better, you may now spread the word that Aiden IS NOT leaving the ABC sudser on its third run.
Below, Ausiello from TV Line cleared up the rumor about Barry Sloane's exit as well as his character, Aiden's brief appearances on some flashback events.
Either way, it’s not true. Not only is Sloane a full-fledged series regular in Season 3, but his alter ego is moving front and center. “Last year he was very much a ninja on the periphery,” notes new showrunner Sunil Nayar. “And now we get to inject him into the world of the show. It’s reconception of the character and a real growth. The stories we told last year barely scratched the surface of what Barry is capable of doing as an actor and what the character is capable of doing on screen. He has such a rich history with Emily.”
Are you happy that Aiden is sticking around? And do you think Emily can manipulate Patrick as well? Sound off in the comments!
