    • i agree it’s gotta be conrad or ashley. heck even both! they’re pretty meaningless in terms of storyline..
      ps .. it makes me so sad to see all the jack hate! :/

      • Thank you! I DO NOT GET all the Jack hate. It’s like fans automatically hate a character if they are nice and honorable. On a show with all these conniving characters, it’s good to have Jack to sort of balance it out. He has chemistry with Emily and I like him much more than Daniel. Let’s put it this way: I’d rather Emily hook up with a corpse than have her be with Daniel. I was further irritated when I found out that they were dating in real life. THAT is why the writers changed their minds to kill off his annoying douchebag character on the beach.

        • I don’t hate Jack but I find him boring. I saw the chemistry between Emily and Jack the first season but since then there hasn’t been any warm/affectionate interaction at all between them… I haven’t seen a spark at all (granted the writers haven’t given them any opportunity). The closest it came was on the beach during Jack/fauxAmanda’s wedding… and Emily looked a bit wistful. But I bet that viewers that started watching in Season 2 don’t get the connection at all…probably can’t see why people are rooting for Jack and Emily.

          • I definitely see a spark between Jack and Emily! Even in season 2, where they’ve been keeping their distance because the timing isn’t right (because of Fauxmanda, baby Carl, and all of Emily’s secrets). There has always been a chemistry between them, even when they haven’t had the opportunity to explore it. I’m just praying Jack will soon know Emily’s true identity and they’ll eventually ride off in the sunset together…. :)

        • I’m fairly ambivalent over who Emily the character dates, but that Emily and Josh are dating IRL annoys me too. Probably because I still feel burned after B&S and Alias and all those other shows where real-life co-stars’ romance has gone sour and ruined the show.

          Comment by MM – April 12, 2013 09:56 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I love Emily and Daniel together! They make a GREAT couple! There is definitely chemistry bx them! I really think Emily loves Daniel, but she cannot allow herself to really show it because of her “mission”. It does not look like Emily and Jack are going to get together because he does not trust her and this has caused him to not feel anything for her now Daniel truly loves Emily and would do anything for her. He puts her before his family. Actually, she would be better off with him because he truly loves her and she does love him more than what she thinks..

          • She doesn’t love him anymore. She did but after he chose not to expose his parents for David Clarke’s murder, as well as being an accomplice to the conspiracy and many other crimes his parents have committed, she hates him. He’s just a pawn in the game now.

      • Love Jack! I really hope that Jack does not get killed off… if he does he better be told the truth, but I don’t want him to die. His storyline has been juicy lately, that could be a good or bad thing…

      • i aGREE they are both not important to this show, they could both die and it would still be able to contunie without concern. Plus i cant stand either of them especially ashley

      • I’m so glad other people feel the same way! I’ve never understood the Jack haters. He’s NOT boring–especially now that he’s (slowly but surely) learning the truth. I cannot wait until Emily confesses the truth about her identity, and I’m praying it happens during season 2′s finale. Please don’t kill off Jack! He and Emily belong together!!!!

          • Thank you for understanding! Seriously, Jack has lost enough loved ones already. Leave the poor guy alone! Declan may not be a master Revenger, but his presence is certainly not useless.

      • They can’t off Jack before Emily tells him she is really Amanda…and then his last dying words will be – I’ve known all along, then he’ll smile, touch her cheek and then close his eyes.

        • i think it will be jack they kill off…on his death bed amanda will confess the truth to him and he will die knowing the truth….she gets on with her revenge and jack knows the truth but doesn’t live with the knowledge that he was deceived by the real and fake amanda.

        Comment by Natalia – May 9, 2013 08:10 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I’m thinking that one thing we’ll see as the show progresses is all the “heroes” gain a reason to want to take revenge on the Grayson’s for their misdeeds. Emily has what they did to her father and Jack has to what they did to his wife. It gives them a reason to be enemies of the “bad guys”. What I think the death needs to accomplish is give one of the other heroes or potential heroes a reason for them to hate the bad guys.

      That’s my take on it. Otherwise, really, the death just becomes a reason to trim the fat when it should be used to move the narrative forward.

      Comment by Michael Sacal – April 11, 2013 06:01 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • in this case, i think it should be Declan, giving both Jack and Charlotte a reason to join the fight against the Graysons. wouldn’t it be cool if those two got together (over the baby, their grief, and their hatred for the Graysons)? a little weird, but that would create some interesting tension in the storyline.

        Comment by kels – April 11, 2013 06:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • or it could be Charlotte to give Declan a reason to hate the Graysons.

    • Conrad or Ashley would not be a surprise to Emily…It’s gotta be Nolan or Jack – those are the only two above that would rock Emily to her core!!

          • Of the season or ever??? Charlotte’s character still has so much potential story-wise that it would be stupid for the Revenge writers too X her off. I agree that her death would be a shock to Emily, but it’s not Charlotte’s time to go yet. What about the unborn child in her womb??? What about the chance for Char and Em’s to team up as sisters and take the Grayson’s down???

        Comment by Joy – May 7, 2013 12:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • My immediate thought is Ashley, then Charlotte or Declan. I can see how Jack losing another person close to him would further fuel his Grayson hatred, but that might seem like overkill for one character. Ashley is utterly useless to me. She needs to leave. I wouldn’t mind Conrad leaving, but I think he serves more purpose than Ashely. Charlotte will most likely stick around, but I wouldn’t mind if she kicked rocks.

      Comment by trish – April 15, 2013 06:01 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Please, please not Nolan. He is my favorite. Aiden is adorable and that would be too horrific. Ashley or Declan would be my choice. Conrad plays an evil person very well so he has to stay. Those would be my choices.

      Comment by Bonnie Graber – April 15, 2013 08:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Let me offer this theory:

      It’ll be Daniel, and Victoria and Conrad will blame Emily for his death, thus giving THEM a reason to seek revenge against HER.

      Comment by Sophie – April 17, 2013 01:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • please be victoria, man i just really cant stand her, but she is too much of an asset to this whole show and i doubt they could kill her and still make a show, and conrad isnt that important so probably him, please do not be jack, but if it is, that will allow for more need for revenege for emily! and to be honest i use to root for aiden but im not sure anymore… i kinda feel bad for daniel, i think he really loves emily. but I am a hopeless romantic always!

      Comment by lacye – May 5, 2013 07:12 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I think it’s going to be Declan, his character hasn’t been worth much to the show. However I don’t see why it would be such a huge surprise to Emily. Daniel would be to her character… he could go too, the script recently has had him shutting down his responsibilities. My 3rd guess is Jack, but I can’t see it, too much story line to be had there yet….and would be weird to off him after offing Amanda earlier…

      Comment by Shaun – April 11, 2013 04:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Actually, since Ems was the godmother I would not find it to hard to believe they legally set her up as the guardian. Is Declan even 18 yet? I know Charlotte is- but I would not leave my kid to an 18 yr old rich kid. Not that I would want this to happen. It would be awful.

        Comment by Kristin D – April 11, 2013 04:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • That’s a really good point about not wanting to leave your baby with an 18 year old rich kid, it strikes me however that a Vigilante Billionaire, who is out to avenge everybody she ever loved, Is possibly Not the lesser evil in this case??? ;) I honestley think Ashley is the one to be cut (possibly literally??) but I fail to see how that could advance anybody’s story as she is Duller than a bag of pebbles, and has Nobody to love (on screen ofcourse). I can’t help but think it will be Aiden though…. Mainly because his death serves the most logical, if you consider it will really ignite Emily’s thirst for blood (if she should need another excuse) but best of all It will free her heart up so when Jack is one mourning faux-Manda he can sweep Ems off her size 5′s….. Plus when she confesses all to him and he forgives her, they can raise baby Carl whilst acting as Grason Take Down Tag-Team???

          Comment by Devon – April 15, 2013 08:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Aiden wasn’t in the list of possible characters. There were only a list of nine.

            Comment by JohnQPublic – April 16, 2013 03:41 PM PDT  
      • Well as Emily is the godmother it would make sense otherwise Charlotte would have been godmother. The purpose of godmother to my understanding is a secondary responsibility of guidance, support and should anything happen to the actual parents become caretaker of the child….

        Comment by Joni – April 12, 2013 03:04 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • A godparent, is to offer spiritual guidance for a child. That means nothing to a court of law. So if no “relation” is available to take the child, the child would likely be out in the foster system. The only way a godparent gets responsibility for a child is if there are guardianship documents saying so :)

  • I hope not Nolan. Doubtful. But I hope not. I enjoy Henry Czerny’s reaction so I hope it’s not him. Ashley maybe. I could see that. It wouldn’t be Jack ’cause of their past. Daniel…less likely. So I’m thinking Ashley or Aiden.

        Comment by Lia – April 19, 2013 07:17 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • That would be sweet…. I really like Aiden, but I don’t feel he and Emily are meant to be together forever (that role belongs to Jack!). So he could bow out gracefully by dying to save Emily. Which would be believable because he’s a volatile character who genuinely seems to care about Emily, and his death would definitely surprise her–and propel the show into season 3. The other option is that he could end up with Ashley. But we’ll see what happens!

        Comment by Joy – May 7, 2013 12:29 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

Are we thinking of a plane crash, an earthquake or a freak tsunami taking out everybody on your list? Or are you offering to be an extra for the show, walking around with a semi automatic taking out every idiot, freak and dullard in one day… Then as the police close in on you and try to arrest you, you turn the weapon on yourself shouting “Mp5… Because I’m worth it!!!” ;) i’d love to hear script and scenario ideas for your massacre.

          Ok with losing Aiden but he’s not on the list
          Nolan better not go anywhere – plus aren’t they casting his mom? He should be safe

    • I would absolutely stop watching the show if they kill of Nolan… The relationship between Nolan and Emily is the best part of the show. I also noticed Adian was not in the photo’s?? I hope whoever it is is not super close to Emily…she just lost Amanda. How much loss can one girl deal with…

    • I’ve never understood the Aiden hatred, I’ve always liked him. He treats Emily as an equal, he’s not trying to dominate her like childish, petulant Daniel and he’s not mooning over her like emo Jack. Moreover, he sees her (and knows her) for who she really is and accepts all aspects of her, even the parts he doesn’t like. In my opinion, he’s the best match for her (so far). Plus, he’s easy on the eyes LOL

      • THIS! Aiden came in and completely usurped every previous male’s position in Emily’s life and she didn’t mind one bit. And neither did I. He became Emily’s sidekick, lover and friend. I love the character and it appears the writers do as well.

        • I am Jack/Emily shipper, but I don’t hate Aiden. I actually like him, and I think he’s the best one for Emily–right now. But ultimately, I believe that Jack and Emily belong together. Aiden and Ashley (hmmm Ashden anybody?!) could get together and make for a beautiful British couple, especially now that she’s proving to actually have a heart. Then they can all go on double-dates and live happily ever after! :D

  • I’m thinking Daniel or Charlotte. They already messed up Jack’s life enough to kill Declan..it’d be too much in one year for him. Victoria is invincible. Conrad and Ashley dying wouldn’t matter that much to Emily. Aidan just got added as a series regular, that would be foolish. They’re not gonna kill off Emily’s best friend Nolan because then everyone would stop watching because that is cruel and unusual punishment. Daniel is for sure less likely than Charlotte, but he’s a stronger possibility than anyone else. My money is on Charlotte. She’s Emily’s sister, and central to every character’s lives. It would be a HUGE blow to Emily to lose her sister who doesn’t even know she’s her sister and that she may be responsible for her death would kill her on so many levels– the Daniel level, the Declan level, and the personal level. It’s gotta be Char.

      Comment by Jen – April 11, 2013 03:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

      • Well if you using TCoMC as a point of reference then she won’t end up with Jack. The Count did not end up with Mercedes (his past love) who had been married and had a son. Jack is Emily’s past, been married and now has a son. And you do remember The Amanda sank right?

  • I’m impressed that they are going to kill a core character. But now that they’ve dialed the Initiative stuff back a bit and gotten rid of Padma, I’m ok with the current cast. If they want to kill someone, Aiden or Ashley are fine. But neither fit the description given. Hmm…not sure I’m looking forward to this.

    Comment by Kathryn – April 11, 2013 03:08 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I wouldn’t mind it if it were Declan or Ashley, but Jack has already been through a lot this season and Ashley’s death wouldn’t surprise Emily that much. So I think it’s going to be Conrad. After what happened to Amanda, and to Padma to a lesser extent, there needs to be a big casualty in the “bad guys” side, imo.

    Comment by Hugo – April 11, 2013 03:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • If they really want to ramp it up they need to kill Daniel and have Charlotte step up. It would take a long time for Emily and Charlotte to reconcile if she ever found out that half-sister had a hand in/or knew about the death of her half-brother. Otherwise I think it’ll probably be Conrad.

    Comment by MissPepper – April 11, 2013 03:14 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Killing Declan, Aiden or Ashley wouldn’t have a major impact on the audience. If it was Charlotte, it’d be different since she’s the constant reminder of what David Clarke meant in Victoria’s life and, of course, she means too much for Emily. Also, I doubt it will be Conrad, Nolan (especially after knowing that the cliffhanger will be related to him) or Victoria (she’s way too important to be killed so soon), I think the victim will/should be one of the good guys, maybe Jack or Daniel.

  • Um, he said it would “surprise” Emily, not hurt her. She’s been on the losing end of things way too much this season. I agree that it’s time for a bad guy to die! Conrad is useless; he can’t really go back to the business, and I doubt he’d really win the political run. He’s also been all over the map, plot-wise. HIs death could set up a very interesting love-hate relationship between Daniel and Victoria and give Daniel more “teeth” in the plot. I’m sure Conrad’s death would also surprise Emily without dealing her Yet. Another. Blow. Conrad!

    Comment by lore – April 11, 2013 03:25 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree, killing Conrad would also cause a big crazy storyline too. Daniel will have more fuel int business. He is the one that brought in this Initiative business into the Hampton. Also, even though we will find out who dies before the credits rolls, this would open up another one of those “who did it storylines.” And well, this spoiled death might not be the only death, but probably the only one with a major character. Though, I guess we will all see.

  • Kinda thinking Ashley. It says it’s a surprise to Emily… maybe Ashley dies as a result of her actually helping Jack & her duplicitousness is discovered by Conrad thus being killed after finally doing something unselfish hence a surprise to Ems.
    Just a thought!

    Comment by Sunshine – April 11, 2013 03:30 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’m hoping for Jack, Declan, Charlotte or Aiden. Unfortunately I think the show believes if you fall in love when you are six it is a lifetime commitment, so Jack will probably stick around. Maybe making him revengy will make him more interesting. Declan doesn’t contribute much to the show, Charlotte would hurt Victoria, Conrad, Declan and Emily so her death would have more impact then her character, IMHO. Aiden just hasn’t worked for me, so I could see him go with no regret.

    Comment by Lorena – April 11, 2013 03:33 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • My money is on Charlotte or Conrad (Ashley can go too, she really isn’t that important)

    But I think that Charlotte has a lot more potential as a character since she is Emily’s half-sister and she hates her family just as much as Emily (and once she finds out that her parent’s were to blame for Amanda’s death, she would definitely side with Emily and her vendetta. She could develop into a great character. But of course it’ll be even more emotional for Emily is Charlotte died.

    I feel like Conrad can be killed off since he isn’t that crucial anymore (since Daniel is in charge of Grayson Global. It’ll be great to see him die since he was supposed to be the one framed for the bombing of Flight 197. It’ll be a little piece of justice for Emily.

    that quote is vague, “it’s certainly a surprise to Emily.”

    Any one of the characters’ deaths could be surprising to Emily, it doesn’t mean that she’s going to be any more upset about it. Emily has wanted to make the Graysons suffer for what they did, and Conrad randomly being killed by someone else would definitely surprise Emily and it would kinda mess with her own plans of dragging out their suffering.

    She’s spent all this time plotting her Revenge and then them ending up dying before she’s done with it would be really frustrating to her and would add an interesting twist to the story.

  • Daniel, Charlotte, Declan, Ashley… I’m okay with any/all of those. Ashley seems the most obvious cause she doesn’t have any real ties to the show. But can we at least get Charlotte and Declan sent off to university so they stop wasting valuable screentime on their boring plots?

    Comment by A – April 11, 2013 03:41 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • As long as it’s not Nolan, I don’t care really. I figure it won’t be Jack because that’s who she’d most likely end up with when the show is over.

  • I just hope they don’t kill Nolan, Jack, or Daniel. For me, if any of them die, the show is over for all practical purposes. I hope they realize that there are characters they just can’t kill if they want to keep their loyal audience.

    I am doubting it will be Victoria or Conrad. They are too key to the plot as “bad guys”, and it would limit the scope of the show for either of them to go.

    The most expendable of the originals is Ashley, but I am betting that they won’t choose her, if only because she is not important enough to make a serious impact. Most people don’t care one way or the other what happens to this character. (But if I got to choose, it would certainly be her!)

    My bet is with the people who guessed Charlotte. It makes sense that this would gut punch Emily, and leave her filled with grief for the fact that she would now never get to know her sister as her sister. It seems less likely that it would be Declan.

    Comment by MaryAnn – April 11, 2013 03:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I can see Declan because he has been pretty quiet so far, maybe Aiden he’s starting to get boring and same old-y. Definitely don’t want it to be Ashley, they need to resolve her past interactions with Emily, the whole bail out thing. Ashley discovering it was Emily who helped her would be an interesting plotline to follow and out of everyone she has the know how to discover the whole charade so if they kill her I think some interesting plot will be missed out on. Please, be Aiden he isn’t important and his death would be a shock to Emily at least.
