David Clarke (James Tupper) may turn against his daughter Emily in Revenge Season 4, according to spoilers from the showrunners. Naturally, this depends on who talks to David first.
The previous seasons focused on Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp), 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 (Madeleine Stowe).
Eventually, she gets Conrad arrested and Victoria committed to an insane asylum. In the surprise Season 3 finale ending, David comes back from the dead to stab Conrad to death. So, it seems the older Clarke may have been alive all along.
"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 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 will not only see the return of David, but also the introduction of new characters.
On Tuesday, July 29, Variety reported that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Elena Satine will join the Revenge cast as Louise, the slightly demented daughter of 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.
ABC will air Revenge Season 4 on Sunday, Sept. 28 at 10pm ET.
