Now that The Amanda — and the Amanda — are gone, Revenge is embarking on a new journey (beginning Sunday, March 10), one that leads straight to another explosive finale. But TVLine has learned exclusively that unlike last year’s Emily-heavy season-ender, this one will focus on another character — a fan fave that countless viewers have been clamoring for more of throughout the ABC soap’s sophomore run.
During a chat at this week’s Costume Designers Guild Awards, Revenge scene-stealer Gabriel Mann spilled a major — and majorly exciting — scooplet about the series’ upcoming finale.
“[Showrunner] Mike Kelley is keeping [finale storylines] so close to the vest,” Mann shares, “but I will say that the cliffhanger we are working up to at the end of this season is very Nolan-centric.”
Before that time comes, though, the Hamptonites will have to deal with the aftermath of Amanda’s death, a task that won’t be simple for most.
“Amanda’s death shakes things up in such a major way psychologically for the characters,” he tells us, noting that the passing of the semi-reformed bad girl won’t hit his alter ego as hard as others. That said, “Nolan does feel, in his love and empathy for Emily, the pain that she went through.”
Jack, however, is the mourner with the mostest this time around. “Because he now knows way too much — although he’s still grasping at details — I think we’re about to see the birth of a new, smarter, meaner, revenge-y Jack Porter,” Mann reveals. “That’s what I’m going to tease for the rest of the season.”
As for what leads Nolan to the finale frontlines, Mann will only says that his character “has got his hands full with The Initiative and the ‘Padma of it all’ right now. Somewhere in between [dealing with] Jack and Padma, it’s actually a return to classic Emily-and-Nolan for the rest of the season — and I’m really looking forward to that.”
Now, feast your eyes on the following exclusive first look at Jack and
the real Amanda Emily mourning the loss of their loved one in Revenge‘s March 10th installment.
