Holy Moly! This season on Revenge the writers have put in so many twists, but this one set the stage for new dynamics and conflict as the story continues from here, especially for Jack Porter as played by Nick Wechsler!  On last week’s episode,  Stevie (Gail O’Grady), Conrad Grayson’s ex-wife (Henry Czerny), revealed herself to be Jack’s mother!

So what happened when Nick Wechsler found out the story plot point? Well, according to E Online Wechsler said, “My first reaction was sort of like, ‘Wow, this is an incestuous little group! We’re all interwoven in each others lives in some crazy way. ‘ (Laughs)  So when they mentioned that at first, I was like, ‘Oh s–t, really?’ And then once they told me, I was like ‘OK, now I see why we’re doing it, it’s pretty smart.'”

As for Jack’s new found connection  with the Grayson family, who killed his wife Amanda and his brother Declan, Wechsler admits it will help set the stage for Jack and Emily (Emily VanCamp) to actually reconnect! “I think this sort of helps him understand why Emily was doing what she was doing.  His wife was killed, and his brother was killed by the same family that f–ked her over.  Jack wants back in, if for no other reason than to protect Emily and those he loves, but I think he might sort of want to find his way back into the fight with the Graysons.”

As for the upcoming season finale, there is hope for Jack and Emily fans!  Nick revealed, “The ideas planted in this finale are awesome.  I’m also excited for people to see Jack and Emily—we find a way for their feelings to blossom again. An opportunity for them is created.”

So, what did you think of the bombshell that was bestowed on Jack by mama Stevie?  Do you hope that Jack and Emily get back together?  Let us know!  And don’t miss an all-new episode of Revenge starting at 10PMEST/9PMCST tonight on ABC!

I, for one, would love to see Emily and Jack find their way back to each other. My patience is strong so I’ll sit back and enjoy the ride while I wait for that day.

Lovin Revenge..
I think Jack and Emily will be end game..
It is highly exciting!!
Emily and her head trauma is becoming exciting never know what she will do next!! I adore Nolan..
It is near an even up between Revenge and Scandal both are awesome!

Scandal is higher drama and way more intense and intriguing than Revenge but Revenge is more soapy! 🙂

I’m guessing that Jack is actually Conrad’s son (Conrad never knew Stevie was pregnant when she left so she gave the baby to the Porters to raise to keep Conrad from corrupting him).

I thought that, too, Alan!

I have been telling Revenge fans that too! I think either Stevie knew and let the Porters believe Jack is theirs OR she didn’t know and thought it was the Porter’s.

So I assume Declan has a different mother because if she were around, Jack would have been old enough to remember her. Did we already know that the brothers had different mothers?

Mark Consuelos Celebrates One-Year Anniversary as Co-Host of ‘Live’ Alongside Kelly Ripa

Today, April 17th marks a full-year since Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo, All My Children) took over the co-hosting duties of ‘Live” alongside his wife, and longtime co-host, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley, All My Children).

Consuelos replaced Ryan Seacrest who are six seasons decided to be back on the west coast full-time. For Consuelos, now having the opportunity to work off of Ripa as co-hosts has been something of adjustment for him, but viewers have been eating it up.

Live with Kelly and Mark has remained the No. 1 entertainment talk show on television over the past year, growing 3% in average total viewers to 2.23M per episode.  It is also the most-watched daytime talk show in the last year in key demos of women 18-49 and women 25-54. All of this, since the real-life marrieds teamed-up.

Speaking with Deadline, Kelly Ripa shared why the two are gelling on-screen, “I do think that there is something very possibly relatable about our relationship. We have disagreements like a normal couple, and we’re not afraid to let them unfold on the air and in front of America, and I think people find a lot of themselves in that.”

Mark weighed in how he has progressed as a host, and what he could improve at, sharing, “I’d like to get better at my interviewing skills. I’d like to get better at reading a teleprompter…I think I’m getting better at throwing to commercial. The other day in the middle of the show as we go to commercial, my sign off was ‘See you guys around.’ I mean, the show wasn’t over. The most obvious thing to say would be, ‘We’ll be back right after this.’ But I just said, ‘See you around.’ So we went to commercial and one of the producers (goes) ‘What was that?’ I don’t know… So for the next few sign offs, as a joke, I’d say ‘See you around.’ We got a kick out of it.”

Meanwhile, Kelly has given huge props to Mark, “I find Mark utterly compelling, really interesting, super funny, and he’s bold in a way like nobody else. He says what’s on his mind. If he’s thinking it, he says it.  I’ve done this a long time and oftentimes people will adjust their natural personalities to pander to what they think the audience wants to hear, and Mark will tell people what he thinks, and he doesn’t care if it’s not a popular opinion. It gives him an edginess that I think is really missing in the landscape today. Everybody’s so afraid to say anything, and Mark is unafraid to say exactly what he’s thinking.”

In a statement, Debra O’Connell, President News Group and Networks, Disney Entertainment shared, We could not be more thrilled with how Mark has seamlessly joined the show family as permanent co-host. His undeniable charisma and his and Kelly’s natural chemistry are evident as they deliver the laughs and smiles to our viewers each morning. We are incredibly proud of how Live has continued to evolve and that the audience is responding so enthusiastically.”

So, do you think Mark Consuelos is the best co-host his wife Kelly Ripa has ever had on ‘Live’? How would you say he is doing as co-host after one full year on the job? Comment below.
