During Sunday’s episode of Revenge, Emily Thorne and Victoria Grayson will be forced to set their issues aside now that Malcolm Black has kidnapped them.
Hellbent on finding his daughter, Malcolm (Tommy Flanagan) will use those closest to David (James Tupper) as leverage after the Clarke patriarch threatened his daughter’s life. Little does Malcolm know, his daughter is already dead, forcing David to race against the clock to find Emily (Emily VanCamp) and Victoria (Madeleine Stowe). “The furnace of hell has been lit,” Tupper tells EW. “I’m not going to let someone take my daughter away from me. I’m on the revenge path. It’s a really fun episode. We have so much fun doing social gatherings, but the other thing is sometimes it becomes this ninja show. We lean heavily into the ninja in the next episode.”
Though David previously had plans to kill Victoria after suspecting she had betrayed him all those years ago, Tupper says her recent confession has changed David’s heart. “She was always the love of his life all those years in prison, so to discover the truth of it, we just parted ways, though the door is still open for something possibly to happen,” he says.
On the flip side, after uncovering the truth that Emily is his daughter, Amanda, David and Emily are finally in a good place, though her kidnapping will shine a new light on their relationship. “When the going gets tough, people really reveal themselves,” he says.” It’s time for David to become a fighter.”
But Malcolm Black is far from the only threat Emily faces after Victoria revealed her true identity to Margaux (Karine Vanasse)—which Ben (Brian Hallisay) happened to overhear. “Now she knows who Emily is, but she knows it through Victoria’s eyes,” Vanasse says. “Obviously the version she knows is that lady came back to the Hamptons and destroyed everyone’s lives. She knows her dad died from that war, the father of her future child died from that war. Now she has no one, so it’s like, ‘Okay, that’s it. I’m going after you.’ In Margaux’s mind, it has to stop.”
Though the obvious answer would be for the magazine editor to release the truth about Emily publicly, Vanasse says it’s not so easy. “She’s just going to investigate more and more what this whole thing implies,” she says. “She wants people to know the truth and wants this whole thing to be just and she doesn’t feel like justice has been served.”
In other news, we’ll finally get to meet Louise’s mother (Carolyn Hennesy) in the flesh. As we recently learned, Louise was having crazy visions of her overbearing mother because her family had allegedly been drugging her. Why? Because with Louise incapacitated, the Ellis matriarch keeps control of her inheritance. “It’s pretty close to what you’ve seen [in the visions],” Satine says of meeting Mama Ellis, who may or may not be in cahoots with her brother Lyman (Sebastian Pigott). “She’s reeling from everything that’s happened. She really wants to believe Lyman is not involved. She wants to believe someone in her family is still on her side.”
Revenge airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
