season 2 ended with several huge cliffhangers, including the arrival of Victoria's first son, Patrick Harper. When he showed up on Victoria's doorstep, his face wasn't revealed, but it's no longer a secret. Justin Hartley (Emily Owen, M.D., Smallville)
has been cast
as Victoria's abandoned son.
season 3 premiere will begin with a five-month time jump
, which means that the mother and son will have had plenty of time for them to be re-acquainted with each other. At this point, it's unknown whether they will have a amicable or antagonistic relationship with each other.
Another benefit of the time-jump is that viewers won't have to see Charlotte deal with the aftermath of Declan's death. Plus, she will be nearing her third trimester of pregnancy. That is if she decided to go through with having the baby. Given Declan's death, it seems unlikely she would choose to end his babies life though, right?
One disappointing aspect of the time jump is that Emily and Jack's journey to re-connect could be bypassed. Though, Revenge is a fan of flashbacks, so perhaps that time period won't be entirely skipped. Jack will be in a tough spot after Declan's death, Emily's reveal, and dealing with being a single parent. His answer: drinking too much.
Back in May, it was reported that Ashley Madekwe would not be returning for Revenge
season 3, but that was not entirely accurate. According to TV Guide
, she will be reprising her role of the manipulative and status hungry Ashley at least for the premiere episode when she shows up at Emily's party. Whether she will stick around longer or make return appearances hasn't been announced.
Revenge will return this Fall on ABC.
