Season three of ABC's Revenge promises a return to its roots, and show stars Emily VanCamp and Gabriel Mann give up a few goodies about things to come – and the promiscuity of their characters! Watch the video…
"She's like the Hamptons whore, man, she just gets some all over the place," jokes VanCamp about her character. But seriously: "I think she has two loves; she's marrying the one that she doesn't love at all, unfortunately, and I think we see her battling with that. But that's always been the plan, so she's okay with it."
The show about retribution follows Emily Thorne, who moves to The Hamptons with a new identity, ready to take vengeance on the people who murdered her father and stole her childhood -- and no one is off limits. Season two ended with a bang as a major character died, two were arrested – and Emily confessed her true identity.
"The first episodes of season three might be the beginning of the end for Emily Thorne," teases VanCamp, who says the show's big flash-forward reveals her standing at her nuptials in her wedding dress. "It's about six months later. … Nolan is in prison, the Graysons are broke, Conrad is governor. The idea behind that [time jump] is to skip some of the boring stuff and get people back into their community of crazy people."
Also starring Madeleine Stowe, Nick Wechsler, Henry Czerny, Christa B. Allen, Ashley Madekwe and Joshua Bowman, Revenge season three premieres Sunday, September 29 at 9/8c on ABC.
