'Revenge' season finale: Creator Mike Kelley answers burning questions!

Last night’s season finale of ABC’s delectable soap Revenge — perfectly titled “Reckoning” — was, in a word, explosive. And filled with juicy cliffhanger after cliffhanger.

With so many doors opened, there are so many questions that are begged: Is Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) really dead? What’s going on with the increasingly tangled love life of Emily (Emily Van Camp), Jack (Nick Wechsler), Amanda (Margarita Levieva), Daniel (Josh Bowman), and Ashley (Ashley Madekwe)? Is Amanda’s baby really Jack’s? Who will play Emily’s mother? And what will the character be like? How did the show so perfectly pick Florence and the Machine’s haunting “Seven Devils” to play during the episode?

To answer these questions, we went straight to the source: Revenge creator and executive producer Mike Kelley, who holds the keys to the show’s castle. As usual, he was tight-lipped about some things — but let a few other juicy tidbits slip. Read on for the answers to all your burning questions from last night’s season finale.

'Revenge' boss teases season finale and poses a juicy query: 'Is Emily willing to kill?'

What’s going on with Revenge‘s dynamic, scheming duo Emily (Emily VanCamp) and Nolan (Gabriel Mann) in this photo? You’ll find out more in tonight’s season finale, but EW enlisted the show’s creator and executive producer Mike Kelley to answer the big question this shot begs: Did Emily and Nolan get caught?

You’re not going to get the answer that easy. “It’s either a predicament… or it’s Emily’s plan,” Kelley teases cryptically. Last week’s episode detailed the beginning of Emily’s hunt for the elusive white-haired man (played by James Morrison) who killed her father in prison. “He has all of the information, and there’s this weird kind of respect between the two of them,” Kelley continues. “What we tried to do was try to emulate the Clarice Darling and Hannibal Lecter relationship, because it’s oddly sort of sympathetic or empathetic. It’s really interesting — they’re both cut from the same cloth. They’re mortal adversaries, but they have a respect for each other, and it’s a really interesting relationship.”

TV's top time-period battles this fall

With the fall TV schedule now complete (below), we get to step back and take a look at the hellish battleground that broadcast hath wrought. There’s some very tough-to-predict match-ups this fall:*

Tim Allen vs. Whitney Cummings (Fridays, 8-9): “No, my show’s lamer!” ABC and NBC have their low-expectations comedies airing on Fridays this fall, and they might run head-to-head depending on when NBC launches (ABC’s comedies premiere in November). NBC has Whitney and Community and ABC has Last Man Standing and new comedy Malibu Country. (Community fans, if your ass beat by Reba McEntire and Lily Tomlin, we have no words for you). At least 9 p.m. shows Shark Tank and Grimm will have half-way decent lead-ins for once. Our prediction: Edge goes to ABC.

Britney Spears vs. Christina ‪Aguilera‬: OK, so one this is kind of a cheat. The Voice and X Factor won’t air on the same nights, let along in the same time period. But if you think their lack of head-to-head scheduling will matter to the media, you deserve to be hit, baby, one more time. Everybody will obsess over how these two compare. NBC’s The Voice has the wind at its back, averaging 6.2 in the adult demo this season compared to X Factor‘s 4.4. We all want to see how Spears handles the reality show spotlight, but many wonder if she can pull off being entertaining and analytical. Mark Burnett cast The Voice with big names who are charismatic and have the cojones to criticize a singer. Simon Cowell seems to like big names — who are just big names. Prediction: You can’t hold down Xtina. READ FULL STORY

'Revenge' boss teases tonight's origins episode: 'It's a love letter to fans'

Tonight’s new episode of ABC’s soapy indulgence Revenge is titled “Legacy” for a good reason — it delves into the history of lead character Emily (Emily Van Camp) as it relates to the folks she’s currently trying to take down in the Hamptons. The official logline from ABC describes tonight’s episode as “the genesis of Amanda’s ultimate plan to bring justice from her father.” But we’ll let series creator and executive producer Mike Kelley explain: “It’s sort of one from the archives, one from the Revenge archives,” he says. “I wouldn’t call it a flashback episode, as much as an archival episode. It’s a bit of a love letter to fans.”

'Revenge' scoop: Connor Paolo on Declan saving Jack, his new enemy, and the season finale

On last week’s Revenge, Declan Porter made an enemy out of the Graysons. While they were never on great terms, the moment he changed his account of the shooting and called into question Charlotte’s credibility in order to save his brother from being further implicated in the crime, he made a very powerful enemy. Connor Paolo says we should be worried.

“If the Graysons weren’t on his back before, they certainly are now,” he says. “It is a terrifying thing. As we move forward, he starts to grasp it. But as of now, he doesn’t fully grasp. He has great respect for the power that the Graysons have. It’s very clear that they are influential and temperamental people, but I don’t think he has any concept of [their] depravity.”

Further complicating the mater is the fact that in lying about his account that night in order to save Jack (Nick Wechsler), he’s also putting himself in real legal danger. Perjury is a federal offense and could mean serious prison time for the offender. And the realization of what Declan did and risked will weigh heavily on Jack, says Paolo. “There’s definitely a certain amount of tension because Jack, being the self-sacrificing person he is, doesn’t want to see his brother perjure himself and doesn’t want to see his brother risk destroying his future,” he says. “[Being convicted] will absolutely ruin Declan’s chances at any time of life outside of the one that he already leads, which both he and Jack want for him. Jack would almost rather take the fall for this than see his brother fall apart instead.” READ FULL STORY

'Revenge': Gabriel Mann and Nick Wechsler tease good news for 'Team Jack,' upcoming 'steamy love'

revenge

Surviving a Revenge hiatus may have been difficult, but it’s nothing compared to the struggles we’re about to see our lovably evil Hampton-ites go through.

When the show returns tonight, Daniel’s in prison, which sends those around him into a tizzy as they look for ways to protect him from the dangers that now lurk around him — and we’re not talking about Hepatitis C. And the lengths that fiance Emily (Emily VanCamp) and mom Victoria (Madeline Stowe) are willing to go to ensure his safety are sure to shock. “It’s everything that [fans] have loved watching this season, plus more. A lot more,” he told EW during a chat yesterday. (See the video below.)

'Revenge': Nolan's secret tape revealed! Plus, a peek at episodes (and confrontations!) to come -- VIDEO

The folks at Revenge are making it really easy for new viewers to hop on Emily Thorne’s vengeance train.

In this pretty clever video “record,” Nolan (Gabriel Mann) catches viewers up on the havoc that’s transpired in the Hamptons in the past few weeks — from David Clark’s set up to Daniel being hauled away in handcuffs “and not the fun kind.” (Also, Nolan confirms he’s team Jack!)

There’s also a peek at some of the fun coming up. “What I do know is, things are only going to get more intense,” Nolan promises, as we get glimpses of a dreary court and a major confrontation between Daniel (Josh Bowman) and Emily (Emily VanCamp)  (Simmer down, Daniel!)

Check out the video below and express your joy in comments that the countdown to new episodes now stands at a mere five days!

'Revenge' actor to go wild on 'Grimm' -- EXCLUSIVE

Seems like the only place Roger Bart can escape Victoria Grayson is in the wild!

EW has learned exclusively that Bart (The Event, Desperate Housewives), who portrays slimy author Mason Treadwell on Revenge, is heading to NBC’s Grimm in May. The actor will play a Wildermann, a bearded, “Grizzly Adams-type” character, and he will appear in an episode that tackles the legend of Big Foot, according to casting intel. It was announced yesterday that Kenneth Mitchell (Jericho) is set to play the creature.

Grimm, which was recently renewed for a second season, returns this Friday with new episodes and will air uninterrupted until its May finale.

Stars from 'Vampire Diaries,' 'Castle,' and 'Revenge' talk what's next in Spoiler Room: Video Edition

spoiler-room-kat-graham-2

While on the set of The Vampire Diaries about six weeks ago, I took note of a familiar face walking around set: Robert Ri’chard, who plays Jaime.

Now, at the time, we’d only recently been introduced to the boy, who is the adoptive son of Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) mom, Abby (Persia White). But seeing him lurk around set was a pretty good indication he’d be back. And he is!

This Thursday, in fact, and from what Kat Graham indicates, it’s to connect on a new, romantic level. (They’re not blood, so we’re OK with that, right?) But that’s just one of the things in store for the Bennett family. Candice Accola was also nice enough to share some details on that in the latest Spoiler Room: Video Edition, which you can check out below.

Also in store? Some scoop from Tamala Jones on the upcoming Castle episode, “The Limey.” (Hint: Lainey’s as ready as we are for some Caskett!) and Gabriel Mann teases a big twist with Nolan on Revenge that we won’t see coming. (Could it be revealed in the much-hyped flashback episode? Could be, could be.)

Anyway, enjoy, folks. See you back here on Friday for your regular column. In the meantime, send me an e-mail if you have a scoop request — or if you want to play Draw Something with me! (I wish I was kidding… but, tragically, I’m just that sad.) READ FULL STORY

'Revenge': Scoop on Daniel's prison rough-up, a big flashback episode, and season 2!

The moment Daniel Grayson was denied bail, we knew his days in prison would be anything but easy. And in the next new episode of Revenge, airing April 11, the dangers associated with incarceration come fist-to-face with the eldest Grayson child — with a twist, of course.

The scene, which leaves poor Daniel (Josh Bowman) bloodied and beaten, is just one of many juicy tidbits the crowd at PaleyFest was made privy to after checking out the first 30 minutes of the next new episode, and one of many future nail-bitters in store for the rest of the season.
