Revenge Sneak Peek: Is There a New Suspect in Tyler's Murder?

ABC’s Revenge won’t resume its frothy freshman run for another month yet, but here to tide you over is a flurry of photos from the next new episode, airing Wednesday, April 18.

In “Doubt,” says ABC’s official synopsis, “Daniel’s imprisonment sends Victoria to depths that no one thought possible, as the surprise return of a past love (played by Rome‘s James Purefoy) provides a destructive but welcome distraction from her family’s struggles. Meanwhile, Jack’s search for Amanda grows more desperate as he comes under suspicion for murder.”

Indeed, if you take a look at the police artist sketch being held by the Graysons’ high-powered attorney (guest star Courtney B. Vance), the scruffy guy in a hoodie that Jack’s own brother, Declan, saw hovering by Tyler’s dead body has become a person of interest.

There’s no sign of Purefoy here, but you get lots of Daniel behind bars — at times mooning over (or plotting against?) his fiancée — much of the magnificent Madeleine Stowe, and a particularly stunning photo of Emily VanCamp. But far be it for me to editorialize.

    So annoying that they have been breaking the season up so much. I can’t remember ever waiting a month to see a new episodes on any of my other TV shows…

  2. Jenny says:

    I don’t know maybe this sounds crazy but maybe they should consider bringing the show back in mid October, and ordering 24 episodes. It mean more episodes together, and less complaints from fans.

  3. Natalie says:

    I’m thinking of giving this show up. What’s the point of getting into it, just to have it not air for weeks.

    • Gerald says:

      Well, they do these breaks with all tv shows, it’s annoying but completely normal. They have to spread out all the episodes till May. The show is great, so why would you give up something that’s still good?

      • Kristen says:

        I have to disagree – most shows DO NOT go this long in between breaks. This is a long break – before this one we had one show, wait two weeks, another show, wait two weeks – SO FLIPPIN ANNOYING. I understand re-runs and interruptions here and there, but this is absurd

        • Kris says:

          You are KIND OF right….

          Typically, there are 2 week breaks all over the place, and one longer hiatus over the Holidays.

          This is the second one month + hiatus, not to mention all of the many (yet normal) little breaks in between.

          But it isn’t just Revenge….another favorite of mine (Fringe) had twice as long a Winter hiatus as normal (over 2 months), has been off an on in terms of breaks, and is off for a month right now along with Revenge (which is not normal).

          Not sure what’s going on.

      • Natalie says:

        The problem is a show like loses it’s momentum when it goes into long breaks like this. The episodes have cliff hangers every time it airs. Then to have to wait six weeks for the next new episode?

    • jake says:

      ALL SHOWS ONLY SHOOT 22-24 EPISODES A SEASON — which they must spread from september to may — which is why you have repeats of modern family or why you have winter breaks for shows like Glee. You may not notice it as much for the other shows because they air repeats, Revenge has not.

      Also, the creator is having a hard enough time with 22 episodes and said no to 24 episodes — so would you rather have more episodes that are not as good or each episode that is as good as the last. I mean seriously look at mad men or other cable shows that only produce 13 episodes a season.

      You all realize that you will also have to wait from May to September. That’s every show.

  4. Laurel says:

    I think they wait for a sweeps month to air new episodes so that the show can benefit from the high ratings of the returning viewers.
    Which totally sucks for the fans.
    I can’t stand the stop start with long gaps in between approach to new episodes on any show. It’s enough to drive ya nuts.

  5. peggy says:

    According to the ABC website it states the next new episode is April 11th. So is it then or do we have to wait even longer to April 18th?

    • rob60990 says:

      ABC is airing a recap show on the 11th. The 18th is when original episodes return and will run until its season finale on May 23.

    • Birdie Green says:

      Could you let me know if the show did start again on April 18th? We recently had a house fire and have been out of the house since the end of March. I have tried to find this information on the computer and have been unable to do so. Thank you

  6. Joanne says:

    I’ve given up. No other show on tv has this kind of wildly inconsistent scheduling. On one week. Gone two. On Two weeks. Gone one month. On one week. Gone two more months. ABC clearly wants to kill this show so it is with sadness I will help them with their quest. Maybe I’ll watch it on DVD someday.

    • fernando says:

      Thats sad that for such a great show like this you cant just wait and help it out, because of people like you is why shows really get cancel, yes ABC is giving it a month of a break but you as a fan should be loyal to the show and just wait because ABC can care less what our complains are, so just support the show and wait till it comes back, this is the best show out and its worth the wait.

      • Kristen says:

        Can’t be loyal when you don’t know when the hell it’s going to be on next…..

      • John Q. Public says:

        But therein lies the problem. The networks all want even crave the viewer’s loyalty, but as you say, they could care less about our complaints. They don’t listen to our suggestions and rarely, if ever, hear our pleas to save programs scheduled for the trash heap. Why shouldn’t we just give up after a while, the networks are going to do as they please anyway. I can only vaguely remember one time in the past and the particulars escape me, but there was a loud viewer response over a program being cancelled, and another network picked it up. This was a good number of years back. Viewer loyalty is one thing. There certainly isn’t any reciprocity on the part of the networks. The shows used to reward us with continuing dramas or shows that lasted upwards of 7-10 years. Now we’re lucky if we get a continuing drama that expands past 3 years. Nowadays, they all want to get out while the getting is good. While they still have a decent fan base. If they still had a decent show, didn’t take so damn many breaks, and developed their story lines the way they used to, they might be able to keep their viewers intact.

    • aciel says:

      they didnt have plans for this show and didn’t think that it was going to be popular. i’m pretty sure if they make a season 2 their not going to have many breaks.

  7. torontogirl98 says:

    I agree with everyone else this show is amazing but it is not the kind of show that does well with big breaks between episodes. I know there are only like 22-24 eps and 52 weeks in a year but why must they draw it out so much. I feel like this has been getting worse and worse lately (ie the last 5 years) and don’t get why, it make little sense from a business perspective if it looses viewers. I love the shows that spilt their season into 2 or 3 pieces and air those episodes all in a row like the CW did with VD/TSC this past winter. This makes a much better show and more consistent story otherwise I may have to save them up on my DVR and watch them all at once!

  8. Eliza says:

    Holy mother of pearls! That’s some necklace Victoria is sporting – especially in a prison.

  9. Heather says:

    I know other shows have big breaks like this, but with a suspense-driven show like Revenge, a month break works against it. A week? Fine. Two weeks? I guess. But after a month break I practically have to rewatch the last episode to get back some of that suspense in preparation for the new one. Great ways to kill fledgling shows: bad timeslots, tough competition, and wild return dates.

  10. aciel says:

    their going to air the next 6 episodes without any breaks

  11. jake says:

    Does anyone else feel like they showed the killer too quickly? Or maybe there was never supposed to be a mystery about it — but it seems like they could have held back a bit especially with this hiatus, before they revealed who did it.

  12. Linda Hilton says:

    Why not stick to the “old-style” way of doing things ? There were
    fall/winter shows & there were spring/summer shows. Most ended their
    season with a “cliff-hanger” to bring viewers back the next season.
    There were very few interruptions during the season & when the season
    was finished another show similarly took it’s place using the same format until next until the show’s next season began. This provides continuity to the
    viewers & a whole lot less frustrations that can lead to loss of fans.

  13. Volcfom says:

    Networks purposely have had crazier scheduling over the past few years because of the growing popularity of DVRs and internet streaming. If viewers aren’t planning on watching live, they have the liberty to move episodes around as they wish. And it also helps up-sell DVR systems to frustrated viewers.

  14. Mary Dearborn says:

    One of the best TV series in a long time. Can not understnd the reason for breaking it up. Viewers are loosing intrest. When do it come out on dvd?
