TV show description:
Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) is a new summer arrival in the Hamptons, a seemingly friendly and sophisticated “girl next door.” Her disarming charm allows her seamless access to the restricted circles of the local high society. However, Emily is anything but what she seems. As a nine year old girl, her father was framed for a horrific crime by the friends and coworkers he trusted and sentenced to a life in prison. Emily never saw her father again and spent her childhood consumed by rage, loss, and betrayal. Now, 17 years later, she has returned under an assumed identity with one endgame — revenge. Every social overture is a carefully planned chip at the foundation of her sworn enemies, until their lives come crashing down around them. Emily’s goal is unwavering and her sharp mind is always five steps ahead. However, when her past begins to catch up with her, Emily’s true heart may get caught in the crossfire.

Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) is the glamorous and powerful matriarch of the Grayson family and the reigning Queen of the Hamptons social scene. She appears to have it all: the perfect billionaire husband, beautiful children, and a gorgeous home. But these are just the trappings that house a much darker secret — her culpability in the events that destroyed Emily’s life. Mired in her many secrets and lies, and a true love-lost that still haunts her, Victoria is strikingly suspicious of her new neighbor Emily, who’s taken a keen interest in Victoria’s son, Daniel. Knowing that nothing in life is coincidental, Victoria is determined to find out Emily’s real intentions and will, by any means necessary, protect the life she has sacrificed so much for.

Victoria is married to Conrad Grayson (Henry Czerny), the CEO of Grayson Global. He’s well respected among his peers in both business and society. He’s a shrewd and successful tycoon who operates with questionable moral integrity. Conrad is ruthless and is willing to do whatever it takes to ensure he slithers unscathed out of potentially scandalous situations.

An all-American boy of privilege, Daniel Grayson (Josh Bowman) is Victoria and Conrad’s son. His life of excess embodies all that comes with being the first-born of a wealthy family. Last summer, a messy drunk driving accident caused Daniel’s free-pass to be revoked by his parents and found it replaced with stricter boundaries and even higher expectations. Returning after a semester at Harvard, he struggles to face the demons of his past and re-imagines the life he wants to live. Daniel’s unable to resist Emily’s beauty, kindness, and seemingly wise counsel.

The youngest Grayson, Charlotte (Christa Allen), is her father’s pride and joy. She’s a rich coquettish teenager who’s always on the prowl for fun but. She’s no dummy though and defies expectations with her perfect academic record at school and easily fits right in with the “mean girls.” She also dives head first into forbidden romances with boys from the wrong side of the tracks.

Nolan Ross (Gabriel Mann) is a very wealthy tech genius and social misfit. He’s learned the hard lesson that it takes more than vast wealth to cull social acceptance in the Hamptons. Nolan’s pompous and arrogant, but secretly starved for human connection. He shares a link to Emily’s past and is the only person who knows who she really. This makes him either a useful accessory or a huge threat to Emily’s true agenda.

Jack Porter (Nick Wechsler) is a blue-collar son of a dock worker who’s spent his entire adult life helping his father manage the Stowaway Tavern, a local hangout for the common folk of Montauk. He’s extremely loyal to his family but has always had aspirations of escape. When fate brings Emily back into his life, Jack is unable to shake a deja vu-like connection to her. With intimate knowledge of Emily’s former life, Jack’s growing interest in the strangely familiar new girl could throw a serious wrench into Emily’s carefully crafted agenda.

Declan Porter (Connor Paolo) is Jack’s troubled kid brother. He’s well-intentioned but rough around the edges. An outsider among his peers, he’s frustrated with the lot he’s been dealt in life. Declan is both intrigued and aroused by the wealthy world of the elite vacationers that populate his town every summer. His interest finds a target in the sassy but good hearted Charlotte Grayson.

Ashley Davenport (Ashley Madekwe) is a social climber on the rise and Emily’s closest friend. She knows the details of the inner circles of the Hamptons and has access to all events in the elite social scene. She’s making a name for herself as the go-to event planner and hopes to gain entrance into Victoria’s good graces and solidify her status amongst the Hamptonites. Will being close friends with Emily eventually prove to have an unseen price?

I sincerely hope there will another Revenge series because the finale just ended left many things still to be accomplished. Otherwise, it won’t make any sense at all!!! Therefore, PLEASE continue it.

This is my favorite show on TV. I have watched every show. The story line is so mind grabbing. The only problem I have is not with the show, but ABC. They keep taking it off for sometimes weeks at a time. Hard to remember what is going on. I really hope ABC will keep this one. Not many shows like this left.

Ahhhh, this definitely by far my absolute FAVORITE show. And I’m hooked on TV. I’ve seen every episode if everything and I live this one the most. I will say though, the ratings this season are starting to scare me a little. We need to pick it up people. I think I’ll have to breakdown and watch it live(commercials &all) next cpl times it’s on. I hate watching comnercials, so I DVR it and watch it later. But now that I knoow Revenge needs my ratings I’ll watch it live. I hope others do as well:) 1 thing I don’t like about it, and it’s not really the shows fault it’s the networks, I hate all the breaks. It’s so frustrating. There will be a new episode then bam, it’s gone for a cpl wks, then 2 new eps, then gone another 3. That is beyond irritating. You start to forget what’s happening:(
