Revenge Season 3 Justin HartleyVictoria’s long-lost son on Revenge finally has a face, and it’s a pretty one at that.

The news was first reported by E! Online.

Victoria finally came face-to-face with her estranged spawn in the closing minutes of May’s finale, although viewers only heard his voice (via a cheesy temp off screen voice).

When the new season kicks off, five months will have passed since their reunion and mother and son have reconnected (and presumably are on very good terms).

Thoughts on the casting choice? Thumbs up? Thumbs down? Thumbs sideways?

  • I liked him on Emily Owens MD. Have no idea what his range is but we shall see. Not so happy about the time jump. I know there eventually will be lots of flashbacks but just seems like the writers couldn’t pull it together so they jump ahead and figure out the backstory later.

  • Strange how everyone is going on about Justin Hartley is too young to play the part when the actress playing his mum is Madeline M. Stowe, born August 18, 1958 (age 54) and looks only 45 years old. So we are meant to believe she is old enough to have a 40 year old son! Yeah right.

    • Even if you think she looks that young(I do not) the point is, they said ON THE SHOW that she had him at 16 and that was in either the 50′s or 60′s

  • Dont get me wrong, I love Justin Hartley but are we really supposed to believe he is old enough? Her son should be around 50!!!
