Conrad Grayson is the man behind a lot of conspiracies in Revenge. Earlier, we discovered that he laundered money for a terrorist organization known as The Initiative — an event that caused the iniquitous demise of David Clarke. As the ABC drama progresses, Conrad’s agenda is still motivated by greed and his thirst for power.
In an upcoming episode, the Hamptons will be holding another event that encompasses the Graysons — Conrad and Victoria’s wedding. And just like most Revenge occasions, the trajectory always leads to a sour ending.
On this interview, the on-screen Conrad Grayson actor Henry Czerny, gave us a preview on what’s to come on the said wedding, a bit of information about the elusive organization, The Initiative and more! The Q&A starts from here, keep reading!
Why do you think Conrad agreed to re-marry Victoria?
I think it’s a matter of keeping your enemies close, frankly. Also, I think Conrad enjoys the game on a masochistic level. As a businessman of that ilk, I think you have to enjoy the battles you’re in, otherwise you’d disintegrate. You have to enjoy getting smacked because it provides you with the energy to smack back harder. I think he wants to play with Victoria a little bit more, be played by Victoria and overcome that.
I’d imagine this wedding night, however, will be sent in separate beds behind locked doors?
Although if you lock the bedroom to the door at night, you take away the possibility of an altercation. Once you start locking your door, you’ve kind of given up. You’ve admitted you’re afraid. I think Conrad is always trying to present himself as something that is strong, unflappable and has profound security.
While not worried, Conrad and Victoria definitely seem concerned about The Initiative. You’re filming episode 10 right now, is the organizations goal any more clear by that point?
Episode 10 is the beginning of illuminating The Initiative a little bit. Although for the foreseeable future, The Initiative will remain an entity we’re not too clear about. Obviously they have the means to poke around anywhere they want and with something that far reaching and insidious, it’s pretty difficult to get strong footing against it. At some point, Victoria will go toe-to-toe with The Initiative, but for now, we won’t be able to pin them down and I think the writers want to keep it that way.
In the interim, everyone seems to be worried about the reutrn of Emily’s mom, Kara — why?
Kara is an unhinged character. Always has been, as we’ve alluded to with the flashbacks. No one is really sure about Kara. When she comes back, it’s like someone has unsheathed an electric knife that has a mind of its own. You don’t know what it’s going to do next, so you can’t grab it safely.
