Revenge Shocker: Emily and [Spoiler] Engaged

Revenge Emily Daniel EngagedRevenge‘s Emily Thorne will soon find herself engaged to one of her many suitors. Will Aiden, the red Sharpie-wielding gal’s undercover lover, get down on bended knee? Maybe her former fling Daniel will pop the question? Or perhaps Jack, her childhood soulmate, will finally make a grab for his girl? Ponder no more: We’re spoiling the identity of Em’s soon-to-be fiancé in 3, 2…

As of the addictive drama’s May 5 installment (ABC, 9/8c), Emily will once again be betrothed to… her sexy ex-y Daniel Grayson!

The engagement news was first revealed in the upcoming episode’s official description, which states: “Emily plots her next move in her new role as Daniel’s fiancee, while Aiden struggles with the re-engagement.”

In an interview with TVLine just prior to the question-popping news leak, Revenge creator Mike Kelley prepped us for the major romantic shakeup awaiting fans. “The love rectangle — or Jack and Daniel and Aiden vying for Emily’s affections — will come to a head at the end of this season,” he teased. “Emily will be put in a position where she needs to make a profound choice.”

Could said choice be the one in which she recommits herself to an increasingly dark Daniel? We can’t be sure, though Kelley did playfully note — when asked who Emily really, truly cares about at this point — that the Grayson son has “given her little reason to have true affection for him because he’s been such a bastard in so many ways.

“As far as her future with Daniel is concerned,” he added, “for the time being at least, it’s firmly cemented in her revenge plan.”

So, there you might have it folks: This engagement shocker is all part of Emily’s revengenda.

    Can’t wait, it looks really good!

  2. CJS says:

    And the odds of Daniel dying in the season finale just went up quite a lot (IMO of course).

    • Elyse says:

      unfortunately you are probably right! I’m still hoping Jack dies though!

    • Agreed. This is awesome. They had better not punk out and make it Ashley or Declan or someone equally lame. Daniel dying after marrying Emily would be epic. She’d be a Grayson with, I’m betting, a huge share in Grayson Global. Cue evil laughter and ice cold smile

      • The letter J says:

        This would be awesome.

      • deme says:

        I made this same comment on another board. I seriously think that is what they’re going to do. People betting on Aiden being the one dying baffles me because it has been quite clear from the moment he was made a series regular(after 5 episodes) that he is a writers favorite. Heck, Mike Kelley even stated he loved Emily&Aiden as a couple. And the writing clearly supports his claim. No way Emily is going to suffer another terrible loss after losing Amanda. The new triangle will be Emily having to chose between the two men she clearly loves for vastly different reasons, Aiden & Jack. Daniel is a dead man.

      • GuyAwks says:

        I want this so bad. Daniel’s character has gotten stale and douchey- his death would re-energize the show and be so thematically fitting. I hope the writers take a risk and kill him off because Daniel is a dead weight that is holding back the show.

        Plus I really want to see that Jack/Aiden/Emily triangle (maybe even quadrangle with Vic’s new son although he’d be a bit old).

    • A says:

      One can only hope! Victoria;s new son can take the place of whiny Daniel next season. Hopefully a better actor will be cast.

    • dee123 says:

      Yep. I almost wanna call it.

    • deme says:

      I’ll call it. Daniel is outta here. There’s a beach calling his name.

  3. Ms. Thorne is back to her first plan which was to take down the Grayson thur Daniel.

  4. dude says:

    I wish they’d take Emily/Daniel more seriously as a romantic prospect. Her chemistry with him is far superior to anyone else on the show.

    • Elyse says:

      dude I agree 100%!

    • JB says:

      I agree 100%. I also don’t understand the comments from the creator. Daniel does see concerned about Emily and the only person that tries to keep her out of danger. Isn’t that why he broke up with her?

      I’m sure my hatred of Aiden also clouds this issue.

      From a story perspective I think a large part of the reason the show has become stale is because it just seems like the same things rehashed over and over and over again. The show would be much more interesting if Daniel knew who she was and they worked together to take down the initiative. But this seems like another “use Daniel to strike at the initiative” story line.

      • Me says:

        Agreed. Daniel would be a far more interesting partner in Emily’s revenge plot.

      • But Daniel would never work with Emily to take down The Initiative or his parents- have we been watching the same show? Daniel believes that David Clarke deserved to be framed and murdered, and would sooner ex-communicate his own mother than allow the truth to come out.

        He’s proven that he has no moral compass time and time again and will do whatever get’s him the most money/power possible. That’s not someone Emily is capable of loving.

        Jack and Aiden are definitely potential Revengenda allies- but Daniel would probably rat her a** out to the cops if he ever found out what she was doing.

    • The letter J says:

      Agree, but I think Daniel’s death would do more for the show. I prefer Emily with Daniel too, but they’ve made it abundantly clear that would never happen.

    • Mary says:

      I can’t change my opinion. It is very interesting to see Emily with the son of his greatest enemy.

    • Radha says:

      Not to me. I never found them interesting.

  5. Elyse says:

    as long as it’s not Jack!!! I hate Jack!

  6. She should be with her childhood sweetheart, JACK!!!

  7. Trista says:

    Hopefully this means either Daniel or Aiden will be the major player killed off at the end of the season.

    • kavyn says:

      Hopefully both. I was hoping they’d have a Bachelor party with Aiden, Daniel, Jack and Declan, and suddenly the building they’re in blows up and everybody dies :X

  8. Andrew says:

    I’m so sick of the way they keep shoving Emily/Daniel down our throats. Enough already, please.

    • iMember says:

      Last season Emily actually did fall for Daniel. This season Emily is strictly using him as her ploy to get her revenge against the Grayson’s and wedge her way back in in a more temporarily permanent manner. The writers aren’t forcing anything. We know Emily doesn’t love him and even the creator has stated that.

  9. Diane says:

    Again? Boring. This show is a real let down this season. Last year my friends and I would text or call each other about the episode.This year we barely talk about it.

  10. Amy says:

    Engaged again? Snooze ..

  11. iMember says:

    Haters to the left, this is gonna be good! The show has sky rocketed these past episodes.

  12. Mimi says:

    Agree enough of Dimbo Daniel being given a storyline, he’s had a good run, time to go.

  13. iMember says:

    I do think Daniel being the big death is a likely chance now though.

  14. K. says:

    The only way I care for this is if Daniel is the one killed in the finale. I really don’t care for him at all. Also it better not be Nolan or Jack or I be done with Revenge!

  15. Amy says:

    I don’t see any chemistry between jack and Emily or Daniel and Emily.. I think jack should die or move out of Hampton . At least we will be entertained by Daniel -Emily- Aiden triangle..:)

  16. melanie says:

    Poor Season Two. I don’t even care anymore.

    • maxisatroll123 says:

      u dont care about it but yet u still took the time and read the article and left a comment? if u dont care anymore switch over to another show that u like

      • tripoli says:

        How about you chill out and stop telling those with a differing opinion what to do? A decent portion of the viewing audience is sadly disappointed in this less then stellar season and are prefectly in their right to voice said opinions.

  17. Lynn says:

    I’m so tired of the Emily and Daniel story. I hope Daniel either dies or gets a new love interest. Lets move on. I’d like to see Aiden with Emily, but unfortunately, he’s probably the one that gets killed and she lives happily ever after with Jack. Better Jack than Daniel, but if Aiden gets killed, I won’t care anymore and won’t be watching season 3 if there is one.

  18. MzSweetPrincess says:


  19. Karrie says:

    I’m hoping it’s Aiden who dies; I can’t stand his ninja/assassin character!

  20. ggny says:

    Hmm i swear this has happened before….

  21. David says:

    They are not going to kill Daniel or Jack. I can’t believe anyone really thinks it’s either of them. Aiden wasn’t in the picture but I hope it’s him or Declan or Ashley. I doubt Conrad and the show wouldn’t survive with out Victoria or Emily or Noel. We know the end of the season is Noel-centric and he and Aiden have been working closely to take down the initiative and falcon while Emily is off romancing Daniel. I’m still betting it’s Aiden.

  22. Steph says:

    I hate how Emily treats the people she supposedly cares about. It’s disgusting that they would make her out to be so cheap. Please don’t take her down this road. It’s hard for me to even root for her. I don’t how any fans can be happy with the situation. She is obviously using Daniel, hurting Aiden and lying to Jack. She deserves to end up alone.

    • deme says:

      I understand your position and to some degree I’m with you. But I’m enjoying so much seeing a woman in power that I’m able to go along with it. It’s nice to see the role reversal and having the men being toyed with. And I say this as a diehard Emily&Aiden fan. I hate what Emily is doing to him but he knows revenge first with her just like it was for him when he left her.

  23. Amy says:

    I totally agree with you Steph!

  24. Mimi says:

    For the show, Daniel dying would be a great way to refocus for S3 .

    I’m not ready to lose Aiden and I hope Em feels the same too, but I think her Revenging will come first, she’ll keep Daniel.

  25. Dave says:

    Aiden will die and the initiative story will end finally. They realized that the initiative story was a dumb move and Aiden is still counts as a main character. For sure won’t be jack though

  26. aciel says:

    i hope that this time she actually goes through with the marrige

    • MzSweetPrincess says:


  27. Amy says:

    Jack could die too.. I don’t see Emily having strong feelings for him right now at least..because you had a crush on a boy when you were a kid, does not mean you will still feel the same..she cares about Jack but i am not convinced she loves him..

    • deme says:

      Emily’s feelings for Jack are not the normal childhood crush. He is the last reminder of a time when her life was innocent and full of hope before it was shot to hell and damaged her core. I completely understand her romanticizing him in her mind. The irony of there situation is she sees him of pure and good but her revenagenda has put that in jeopardy. Jack is becoming harden.

  28. MJ says:

    I actually hope Daniel does not die, because I like her with Daniel. If anything, I hate that Victoria does not like them together. I want them to actually have her go through with marrying him and being Victoria’s daughter in law and that dynamic.

  29. mia says:


  30. Maryam says:

    Aiden and Daniel need to die! Both are useless characters.

  31. Ella says:

    Oh no. UGH. I can’t stand Daniel.

  32. Danielisboring says:


  33. cas says:

    I like how everyone keeps saying I hope Aiden is the one who dies. When Aiden was not even one of the choices TVline showed us last week. So lets move on from that….

  34. Mimi says:

    Just an oversight though, he is CORE cast but not an ORIGINAL cast member. Why did they up him to ‘regular’ status from Ep 14 with a contract OPTION for S3, only to kill him off by Ep22?

    ChristaB says the death is someone very very close to her – Daniel or Conrad I’d say.

  35. I’m praying that it’s Daniel who dies in the finale because:
    a) Daniel is a greedy prick with a “poor little rich boy” complex
    b) Jack/Emily can happen
    c) It’s thematically perfect for Daniel to die as Emily’s fiance like we thought in S1
    d) Daniel has nothing more to bring to the show- he would never help Emily in her mission but him trying to be a villain is embarrassing

  36. Donna says:

    I think the writers will make us think Daniel is the one who dies, but I think it will be either Aiden or Charlotte. The summary for the finale says that person who dies is a true ally. I don’t think Daniel is or ever will be a true ally.
    I think Emily and Daniel will get married, and then Emily and Aiden will plot to kill Daniel. However, something will go wrong and either Aiden will die or Charlotte. That’s why Emily will be surprised. I think Charlotte could be the one to die because Emily could tell her the truth and turn her against her parents, making her an ally. Personally, I hope it is Daniel and not Aiden, because I’m a big Aiden fan. But I don’t think the writers have the guts to kill Daniel.

    • deme says:

      Oh, I like this idea except the killing part. I would love for Emily&Aiden to slowly drive him insane. I’m beginning to think it’s not Daniel either. Bummer. Charlotte is such a viable way to connect Emily to the Graysons but they fail to use it. They should bring her into the drama by having her develop an unhealthy attention to Aiden. Declan is dragging her down.

  37. jenjen says:

    I really hope it isn’t Daniel. Yea, yea Daniel could be a bit whiny and he’s definitely no einstein but he’s not a bad guy. him and em have really great chemistry and I think they work well together. I wish they wouldn’t get engaged again though, even if it’s important for em’s agenda. Daniel just keeps getting kicked around and he genuinely loves her. For story wise sake it makes the most sense for daniel to die after they get married but I can’t deny I’d feel disappointed. I like aiden well enough and I’m pretty indifferent to jack. Jus get rid of declan! They can take charlotte too but I actually thing her character would be much better without declan around. Also take ashley! My word she’s useless.

  38. Sarah says:

    Love Daniel & Emily’s chemistry. Hope Emily’s feelings for him reemerge!

  39. Christina says:

    Aiden’s and emily’s chemistry is just so cute. I used to love daniel and emily together but not anymore…and i dont want jack to be the endgame.

  40. Tchele says:

    I think I would be tempted to never watch the show again if they kill off Jack or Daniel. Aiden can go, sure he knows the truth but I just dont like him. And yes I am a huge Jack fangirl(possibly because of a former Roswell addiction) and I would be really ticked if he were gone.

  41. Melanie Huff says:

    I will never watch the show again if they kill off Nolan! He is my favorite. He just lost Padma and I think it would be nice if he and Emily would get together.

  42. I so want Jack and Nolan to get together .. it would be a wonderful turn of events.

  43. Anne says:

    I want quea Emily stayed with Daniel but clear before parents del gotta suffer a little
    Brazil kisses the

  44. PLEASE LET DANIEL DIE!!! I wish he died and they kept Tyler tbh

  45. justin says:

    Aiden is dying…makes sense.

  46. Mimi says:

    .” Unfortunately, a major player — “one of the nine characters that we began the show with” — won’t make it out alive. And wouldn’t you know, the Initiative is responsible for the impending demise.” – Mike Kelley. So NOT Aiden then.

    If there was truly a long plan in place for this Finale i.e.S3 to start with a funeral, then it would have to be major character – Conrad or Daniel.

  47. Paige says:

    I would love to see Jack killed off and have Emily&Aiden as endgame. Having her end up with her childhood crush would be beyond cliche. Personally, I think Emily and Aiden are really cute together. He knows everything already and he understands it all. Plus, they’re pretty similar too! All in all, I can live without Jack and Declan, and I’d stop watching if Emily, Nolan, or Aiden were killed off. As for Daniel, I’d like him to stay and Ashley is absolutely useless so they can just kill her off.

  48. TM7 says:

    They’re getting engaged AGAIN?! Seriously…poor Daniel, as much of a jerk he appears to be at times, he seems to genuinely love Emily.
    Jack and Emily seem like the obvious couple at the end of the show, although the prospect bores me to say the least owing to the fact that Jack is well…bland. In fact, I’d say I find Daniel more interesting than him. But then again, neither of them could be Nolan Ross…
    Aiden, I’m in two minds about…he’s better than both Daniel and Jack though so that’s a plus. As for who ends up with Emily…I think all three are better off without her. Although, I’d say the only person who stands a chance of not getting destroyed by her is Aiden…
    The whole “death of major character” screams Daniel/Charlotte, or I hope Ashley/ Declan. Jack will NOT die, but I don’t care if he does….Daniel dying might be prickling at worst. Charlotte seems to be the only person other than Jack not involved in Emily’s vendetta that she cares about- she could die. Whoever they kill, it better not be Nolan Ross…the show would fall apart without him. I and many others would stop watching the show if they do indeed kill him off.

  49. i love daniel want very much to emily!!!
    perfect couple? * _ *

  50. Ola says:

    Hmm… I really hope it’s not Charlotte cos she never got to know her sister properly. I doubt it’s Daniel or Conrad, I enjoy watching Victoria and Conrad in their petty exchange of words. I like Aiden but wouldn’t miss him much if he gets killed off. And Jack is starting to be invisible as well. At least Daniel goes for what he wants lol. Ashley should die pls! Declan has gotten stale. And we all know Victoria isn’t going anywhere. Fingers crossed now.
