Last night’s ‘Revenge’ said goodbye to a major player, but said hello to Emily and Jack’s rekindling of romance. Keep reading to see if Patrick is really gone for good!
What will we do without the Hampton’s most shirtless Grayson? Okay, so he’s an Osbourne, but he’s Victoria Grayson’s son, his shirt is always off and last night’s episode said farewell to sweet, sweet Patrick (Justin Hartley). Is he really gone? Plus, are Emily (Emily VanCamp) and Jack (Nick Wechsler) finally going to take another shot at love?
Is Patrick Gone For Good?
After Patrick attended Jimmy Brennan’s wake, he left with a bang, getting himself into a blood brawl. Of course, Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) came to his rescue, leaving us wondering, how will the Grayson matriarch deal with her dear Patrick’s departure?
“We always knew we’d bring back Victoria’s son and that he’d become a love interest for Nolan (Gabriel Mann),” Revenge executive producer Sunil Nayar told TV Guide in a postmortem report, following Season 3’s December midseason finale when Emily Thorne was shot. “Frankly, we’re really going to put them through their paces when we come back. Happy relationships are fine and dandy, but that’s not where the show thrives. So, Patrick seeing that there’s this space between the painting that Nolan obviously bought from his mother is going to have him call into question with whom his [loyalties] lie. It’ll cause great conflict in the Victoria-Patrick-Nolan triangle.”
To say the least! This season has put Nolan and Patrick through the ringer, and has brought Victoria even closer to her son and head-to-head with Nolan. After last night, we now know that Victoria puts Nolan at blame for Patrick’s departure to find his father so we can’t wait to watch Victoria’s probable vengeance on Nolan.
Only time will tell whether Patrick will return to the Hamptons — and our TV screens. But, we bet Victoria will have a tough time dealing with this loss. An even crazier Victoria? Perfect.
Will Emily and Jack Finally Make Things Work?
The only thing that can help Revenge-ers cope with the loss of Patrick is the reunion of Jack and Emily. The childhood lovebirds clearly have had feelings for each other since the show’s offset and we’d really like to see them get together already.
But now that Jack has learned the true identity of his mother — Conrad’s first wife, Stevie (Gail O’Grady) — will him and Emily come closer together or will they be drawn apart? It’s all getting a little incestuous, really.
“I think this sort of helps him understand why [Emily] was doing what she was doing. His wife was killed, and his brother was killed by the same family that f–ked her over,” Nick Wechsler told E. “[Jack] wants back in, if for no other reason than to protect Emily and those he loves, but I think he might sort of want to find his way back into the fight with the Graysons.”
So there is hope! Jack now cares about Emily aka Amanda even more, and apparently the Season 3 finale is going to be insane for these two.
“The ideas planted in this finale are awesome,” Nick gushes. “I’m also excited for people to see Jack and Emily—we find a way for their feelings to blossom again. An opportunity for them is created. I’m excited for that, because it’s significant to his purpose on this show, but also just in terms of the excitement of cool writing and being a part of what they’re doing.”
Yes! Sorry Aiden, (Barry Sloane), but Jemily lives on.
