Revenge Season 4 premiere will air on ABC tonight Sept 28 at 10/9 c. David Clarke (James Tupper) may turn against his daughter Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) in the new season, according to spoilers from the showrunners. Naturally, this depends on who talks to David first.
"When Victoria discovers that David is back, is her first reaction terror because maybe he knows that she betrayed him?" Revenge Executive Producer Aaron Harberts said to E! Online.
Even so, the crafty Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) might turn David against his daughter Emily.
"He may not be the most emotionally and psychologically stable and if Victoria is the first person to get to David, she might be in control of that guy, which sort of presents her power running through the season," Harberts explained.
Season 4 episode 1 titled 'Renaissance', in a sneak peek video released by ABC, Victoria calls her old house from the asylum hoping to get help to get out of there, to her surpise, Emily now lives there. Emily reveals that Conrad murdered Pascal, not her, in the phone conversation with Victoria.
The previous seasons focused on Emily, whose mission is to exact revenge against those who wronged her father David. Emily is actually Amanda Clarke, who took on the "Emily" pseudonym to mask her real identity. Though she goes after everyone, Emily's rage is mainly directed against Conrad Grayson (Henry Czerny) and his wife Victoria.
Season Three ends with triumph for Emily, in the season finale we saw Conrad Grayson behind bars, and Victoria committed to a mental institution. At the last moment, Conrad is inexplicably released from prison by a mysterious benefactor, who turns out to be David Clarke. Clarke proceeds to stab Conrad, who is left bleeding in the middle of the road.
Season 4 will not only see the return of David, but also the introduction of new characters. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Elena Satine will join the Revenge cast as Louise, the slightly demented daughter of the wealthy southern family. Satin's credits also include Magic City, NCIS, and the cult-classic Smallville.
Brian Hallisay of The Client List is also coming onboard as Ben the local police officer.
