The battle between Victoria Grayson and Emily Throne took an ugly turn in the cliffhanger finale of Revenge Season 3 with the shocking death of Aiden Mathis.
A distressed Emily now vows to finish mama Grayson, but the return of David Clarke, who was presumed dead during the last three seasons, may create more trauma in her already tragic life.
Meanwhile, fans are hoping to see Emily's love life blossoming again with her childhood friend Jack.
Actor Nick Wechsler, who plays the character of Jack, shared his thoughts to Zap2It about Emily-Jack chemistry and said that it is possible to work but they need time to heal from their heartbreaks.
"Emily and Jack are probably not available because of their heartbreak but they're going through the same thing at the same time and there's a window now," he said.
In an interview with Zap2It, co-actor Nick Wechsler said that though an Emily-Jack team up is possible, it might take some time to complete the healing process.
However, show producer Sunil Nayar said Jack understands Emily's loss and that will bring them closer in the next series.
"Certainly the one person who will understand the loss she's experiencing is Jack because he lost the woman he fell in love with and the mother of his child. So we're definitely going to see the relationship deepen and grow," Nayar told Entertainment Weekly via Breathcast.
The series was based on Emily's revenge on the Graysons for whom she lost her father David. But now that her father is alive, it will be interesting to see what will happen to her plan for justice.
"I think how [David] changes the series moving forward is exactly where Emily and Nolan had that conversation in the sound booth when she says, 'I don't know who Amanda Clarke is anymore,'" show writer Aaron Harberts said during the 2014 ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas.
"That's really how it changes the series. She has to start confronting who Amanda Clarke is and that's really where Season 4 is taking us," he said.
"We felt like [David's return] was a great way to not only impact Emily's world but everybody on the show. So, it was the perfect way to reboot," executive producer Gretchen J. Berg added.
Gretchen hinted that David's return will also affect his former love Victoria's life to a great extent.
"The character David Clarke is going to cause a lot of problems, because he is definitely a point where these two women's lives [Emily and Victoria] intersect," she added.
Revenge Season 4 will premier on ABC in fall this year.
