Exclusive Revenge First Look: An Emily We've Never Seen Before Begs Aiden 'Don't Go'

Get More: Exclusive, First Look, Video

When Revenge resumes this Sunday (ABC, 9/8c), one couple will tie the knot while another will struggle to stay together — and we have an exclusive first look at the latter.

In a scene that should serve as the centerpiece of Emily VanCamp‘s Emmy campaign, the undercover lovers are on their last leg after Aiden has learned of his sister’s alleged murder at the hands of The Initiative. Taking his grief out on Emily, the vengeance-seeker decides to go it alone from here on out — but not before hitting his longtime companion where it hurts one last time.

  • Ugh, I loathe Aiden. He makes me not even want to watch this show anymore.

    • So DISAGREE…Aiden is awesome, love to hear him talk and love his need/desire to rescue his sister – he has heart and Emily and he make an awesome team and couple :)

    • Aiden, to me, is not good enough for Emily. He’s gullible and a bit naive. Last episode he just takes the bad guys at face value. I still don’t trust that video he saw. Who’s to say that that didn’t happen years ago and they kept the video for just the purpose of using Aiden for later, or that it’s all a huge set up to make him think they killed her but in reality they recruited her to join them. He doesn’t ask any questions about the supposed evidence! Or that could easily have not be his sister at all, just a person who looks like her. These guys are not above manipulation obviously and using people’s emotions and weaknesses against them so for this reason I just think Aiden deserves to be alone and get everything he gets for being so stupid. Poor Emily though for losing another man in her life, at least she’ll always have Nolan, but at this rate she’s going to never give her heart to someone again!

    • Aiden is cracking under pressure just as Jack is gaining his confidence and insight. This is when Emily and Jack will reconnect somehow and collaborate as the unexpected underdogs. just you wait!

  • Please get this show back to the way it’s suppose to be. There was no need for Aiden.

    • The show is going back to the way it used to be. Mike Kelley has already confirmed this. He’s heard the audience and he’s listening.

      • Was this in an interview? Would love to read it if it was! If not, could you please tell us what he plans to bring back? Not sure exactly what would be included under this heading.

      • Then let us hope they get rid of the dreadful Ashley and Padma.

    • have to agree. Nolan will always stick by emily regardless. now its time for her to realise that they can do together as the initiative are obviously targetting Nolan as well.

    • There was not need for the Initiative or about two thirds of the bewildering sub-plots that have been stuffed down our throats. This show was good when it was about Emily’s revenge. The rest is a distraction.

  • I completely disagree with the earlier posts – Keep Aiden and get rid of sad sack Daniel.

  • Woah Ems… I feel you! My advice – NOLAN! GO. NOW! He’s ALWAYS there for you hello! For Revenge’s sake please don’t end up with Jackass!

    Comment by e@n (@ean_nae) – February 8, 2013 12:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Still pretty sure her and Nolan are related somehow. The creators have said over and over that they have more of a family/friend relationship. I like it that way

      Comment by Lauren Kirsch – February 8, 2013 12:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Well Ems, Nolan, and crazy mum have all gone from brunette’ish to blonde so I could see that happening, but strange enough I’ve gone from wanting them to be related to being more of a shipper. Though when it comes down to it, I really don’t care what they do, as long as we get more Nolan and they keep giving the wardrobe department free range.

  • Keeeeeeeeeep Aiden…. Why do people like stupid spoiled wrong brats like Daniel….

    Comment by Lau326 – February 8, 2013 12:09 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree. Daniel is such a Herpaderp!

      Comment by Therese – February 8, 2013 03:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Honestly I don’t like any of the guys except Jack and I don’t even want her with Jack because he is a nice person and it would destroy him to find out about her and fauxmanda lying. I’m sure he will eventually anyway but even so…

    Comment by Lauren Kirsch – February 8, 2013 12:17 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • TOSS
    Jack = Too nice and boring…Yawn!
    Daniel = Spoiled Rich, Power-Hungry guy
    KEEP
    Aiden = Decent enough, Long History with Em, reason for Revenge himself
    Nolan = Best Friend, Confidant Only

    • Finally someone speaks some sense…

      Comment by Coop – February 8, 2013 12:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Coop, I was just about to say the same thing. Nan’s post is the only one that makes sense. Emily has become a new woman after her training and the knowledge she has gained and Aiden is her equal, while none of the other guys are. On a side note I can see Aiden slipping up due to jealosy, which would keep the show interesting.

        Comment by LaRoice – February 8, 2013 05:07 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • That’s it. Aiden brings the drama like the other 2 romantic options can’t. You simply don’t know what he will do in any given situation. The other 2 will follow Ems no questions asked which leaves little room for excitement and anticipation.

  • Aiden has brought more substance to Emily and her vendetta, he is needed…I think he works better than Jack – can you say snooze fest? Even before Faux Emily he was a wet noodle (Sorry Jack lovers). Aiden has purpose, Nolan is her BFF. I do like Daniel a little more this season, was too wimpy last year. I think Jack dies on the Amanda, his wedding tux matches the arm we saw in the first episode of this season. Won’t that drive Emily even more in the future – now she’ll have to right 2 deaths…one at her hands, and the other at the Grayson’s.

    Comment by Coop – February 8, 2013 12:26 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Aiden’s the one person besides Nolan who is on Emily’s emotional level. She needs a man in utter control of himself which is why I approve of the two together as opposed to Emily/Daniel. Daniel’s incapable of forming any decisions for himself. He relies on others in order to move forward in whatever task he’s willing to accomplish. I feel like Daniel holds Emily back from her true agenda, so I’m perfectly ok with the two being separated for as long as possible.

    Comment by Maria – February 8, 2013 12:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yeah, but I don’t think Aiden is in utter control of himself. I think he’s a loose cannon. He has bigger trust issues than she does. She needs someone she can trust will have the same focus as she does, and Aiden doesn’t. He says he does, and maybe he likes to think that he does, but he doesn’t.

      Comment by Alichat – February 8, 2013 01:01 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • she has had three guys within the equivalent of 18 mths that she has “Strong” feelings for. Just a tad fickle I think. Aiden has already dumped her previously to go off and do his thing so I’d don’t think he could really be considered a life long partner. There is suggestion Aiden and Ashley have a connection of some sort which would mean he is ultimately lying to her. Don’t see why she has to have a love interest. Nolan may be a friend but has done more for her than Aiden or Daniel.

        Comment by kimh297 – February 8, 2013 06:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I think Aiden’s character brought in unnecessary complications, though this season has been full of those… so I’ve never really liked him. I feel like his presence has also made for less scenes with Emily and Nolan, and those two are awesome together. And Emily will probably not end up with Daniel as their relationship is so murky and weird, you never know what her actual feelings towards him are, though they do have some chemistry since they are dating in real life. I just really want them to get back to the basics with this show. If they get rid of anyone, let it be Padma, the Initiative, and these impossible to follow plot lines where nothing that happened last week seems to matter anymore this week. Bring back Emily verses The Greysons and everyone who brought her father down please.

    I like Emily with Aiden, with him she can be honest. I also like Daniel with Emily, otherwise I dont really like him, so I want her and Emily have smth and maybe make Aiden jealous???

  • I have not like the show since aiden showed up. It is not just him. The storyline has gotten boring. Might stop watching. Last season it was my favorite show

    Comment by Wendy Profumo – February 8, 2013 05:53 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Jack has already gone down what seems to be a path you can’t come back from… Daniel has his own agenda…Aiden pissed me off with his quick “switch” from trusting to completely loose.
    I know Nolan is just a friend but man, I would love them as a couple!

    Comment by Mellise – February 8, 2013 06:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I like all of the characters aside from Ashley…I just don’t like her!!!! I feel bad for Nolan that Padma is with the initiative :( I really like Emily and Aidan together…. I thought Emily and Daniel went together up until this season when I saw her with Aidan..That’s who she should be with.. I think she will always have a thing for Jack since they were childhood sweethearts, but she will never tell him who she really is..I hope he doesn’t find out either…If he’s happy with Amanda then he’s happy…Don’t ruin that because he’ll never be able to be with Emily after that anyway.

    Comment by Megan Garcia – February 8, 2013 06:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • MEGAN GARCIA::: Oh my giddy goodness, someone else who doesn’t like the awful Ashley!!! I hate everything about her, her voice, fake upper English accent, face, clothes, skinny body to the point of malnutirtion, just everything about her. Padma is no better. I just don’t know why they both need to be in the show at all. And why for goodness sakes did Nolan trust Padma without checking up on her???

      Comment by Sandra Hamilton – February 9, 2013 12:19 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Amen to that! Send both packing…and please take “Fauxmanda” with them!!!!! There are tooo many annoying and unnecessary females on this show. Just give their airtime (and wardrobe allowance….) to Nolan!!!!

  • As much as I want Emily with Jack and now as much as I adore Aiden; it still doesn’t take the place of Emily and Daniel. They belong together; I love them together. Nolan, I absolutely love him too!!!!! Revenge is the best show; I had given up on tv shows but now I’ve found one I can’t live without!!!

    Comment by Lala – February 8, 2013 07:21 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think Aiden is great, and as for Daniel, he went off with awful Ashley and now thinks Emily should take him back, I don’t think so, I hope she teaches him a lesson or 2.
    Jack was good but now he’s a wet blanket, and I really hope something nasty happens to Padma or is she being blackmailed?

  • Aiden is about as interesting as my taco wrapper. Boring and moody are never a good combination. Get back to the Jack/Daniel/Emily triangle. You have to admit–they sizzle.

  • I LOVE Aiden´s character, on the other hand I strongly DISLIKE Jack Porter … it seems to me so …. out of this world, naive, unrealistic …. I expected Emily would fall for Aiden honestly ….

    Comment by Anette – February 9, 2013 03:42 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I really hope Aiden will come back. I can see he’s even more hurt because now he knows his sister is dead, there is no hope for her to come back, it was what made him continue and I can totally understand that.
    The thing everyone want is for him to suddenly come back to Emily hug her and finally think “Oh you’re so right and I’ll just forget about my sister I love you” and all the lovey dovey stuff. But be realistic a little, he’s going to leave and sort out his feelings and then he’ll come back to Emily, it’s better this way, than him being with her and just being a time bomb finally exploded and then hurt her even more.
    I really hope Emily will end up with him, they make more sense than Emily and Jack (even if I shipped them pretty hardcore in the 1st season) or Daniel and Emily.
    I really dislike Daniel, I really don’t want her to be with him the more he’s on my screen the more I despise him. And it’s not even a shipper thing, I didn’t really care for the character in the first season but his transformation into a worse mix of Victoria and Conrad kind of made me dislike him. He wants to be Better than his parents but at the end I’m pretty sure he’ll be worse.

    • Are you a mindreader?. My thoughts exactly. Aiden’s actions and emotional responses are completely on point. I believe things will work out just like you stated. ICAM about Daniel. That character bugged me S1 and things haven’t gotten better in S2.

  • Aiden is a much UN-NEEDED character. Emily had enough team players and Aiden just took away what was the best part of Season 1–the pairi-up of Nolan and Emily, plus even Fauxmanda has been relegated to a useless character.

  • What is the initiative and what is it’s purpose?
    Revenge was so good in the first season and since then the storyline is
    stupid and annoying to watch. What are the writers thinking?
    And please ask Emily to speak louder! We are losing our patience with all this
    nonsense!

  • Blech, never cared for Aiden or the whole initiative story, especially the initiative lady (so cheesy). Love everything else about the show though and look at Emily ~ even upset, she looks good. LOVE this clip, really shows her vulnerable side and she looks HOT in Kim Lee Ozawa’s earrings!

    Comment by Amy – February 14, 2013 02:29 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • If they want the show to go on for more than 3 seasons then of course they need more sub plots and new characters. Otherwise, once the Graysons are taken down by Emily what then? The whole show is based on “revenge”. And since when was being a good and decent guy boring? Jack is made for her, you could tell at Jack’s wedding that she still has feelings for him, otherwise why keep the silly ring and cry? Daniel does show signs that he loves her and probably once did (when he asked her to go to Paris) but I see traits of his father in him, and a lot of ambition which would probably rule over his love for Emily. But I am sure he does love her, because he wanted to distance himself from her to protect her from Helen Crowley. Nolan is never going to be a love interest for her, he’s more like a protective brother than anything else. I don’t even know why people keep assuming this? You can so tell they are more like siblings and BFF’s than anything else. I actually do like Padma with Nolan. You can tell she likes him too but is being blackmailed just like Aiden was with his sister. I don’t think Padma is bad and I salute her for being honest with Nolan about the initiative’s plan.
    Aiden I think is a good match for her but I know he isn’t going to stick around. Just a feeling I have. When it comes to their own “revenge”. They are both selfish and I think if Aiden’s sister is alive or if there is another mission Aiden will desert Emily like he did before. I do think they look great together, and he does know her past more than any of the other potentials. But she belongs with Jack in the end.

    Comment by Amrita – February 17, 2013 05:29 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I can only understand about every third word that come out of Aidan’s mouth. He is so miscast and dull and his character is inconsistent and not believable. He does not come across as the “tough guy” nor as a romantic interest. I feel no sympathy for his character nor do I detect an ounce of chemistry between Emily and him. I am glad to hear the show is getting away from muddled new characters and the stupid “Initiative” gang. Please. As a viewer I feel insulted. The first season was incredible, the second season started out just as badly, but there seems to be a bit of momentum now. Nolan and Emily have the best chemistry on the show…more emphasis should be placed on why Emily is there in the first place and the inane subplots should just stop. They are boring and too melodramatic and confusing. I almost gave up on this show, as did a lot of people I know. I am giving it one more season and I hope it gets back to its original level of excellence.
