REVENGE: Emily's Shooter Revealed! Showrunner Sunil Nayar Weighs-In On The Choice!

Last night’s episode of Revenge finally revealed which character shot two bullets through new bride Emily Thorne (now Grayson) AKA Amanda Clarke!

After all was said and done, as viewers watched the set-up go down that was intended to frame Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) for Emily’s (Emily VanCamp) murder, thanks with an assist from Aiden (Barry Sloane) and some Chloroform, Emily’s plan went awry.   If you read any further, there are spoilers contained, if you have not seen the episode yet!

As all the guests were invited aboard the Grayson yacht post-wedding, Lydia (Amber Valletta) handed Victoria damning evidence showing Emily has been infiltrating her family for years!  Daniel (Josh Bowman) got a phone call from Sara’s (Annabelle Stephenson) roommate that she tried to kill herself!  Patrick (Justin Hartley) came back to the Hamptons and had a reunion of sorts with Nolan (Gabriel Mann), but there is trouble ahead there too!   Can you say, “remote control”?

After Victoria confronts Emily and Aiden executes his part of the plan, lo and behold, Daniel overhears the entire conversation and in a drunken stupor and angry fit over the lies Emily had told to him for two years, including the lie that she is pregnant with their child, takes the gun that is sitting a few feet from Emily, and shoots her twice!  She goes overboard! Daniel throws the gun in the ocean and the cover-up begins!

Revenge showrunner, Sunil Nayar who spoke with various press outlets last week, revealed why the choice of Josh Bowman’s Daniel to have done the deed!  Plus, he addresses, Bowman’s recent statements that the actor wants to be written-off the show! Here are a couple choice excerpts from TVLine!

Nayar on how Josh Bowman reacted when he learned he was to be Emily’s shooter:  “He was blown away… Once we knew were doing the storyline, we thought, ‘We have to talk to Josh before anybody,’ because from his acting standpoint, we wanted to give him as much time to prepare for it and make sure he was nuanceing his performance as he got up to it. He was obviously very concerned, because it’s a big move, and we kept assuring him, ‘We’re going to get you to an emotional place where we’re going to believe that you did it, and hopefully all you guys watching actually believed that he got there. I think he did. He did a fabulous job, but he was knocked out that he was going to be the shooter. But also, in a very legitimate way, we wanted to make sure we were going to attend to the nature of his character going forward, and it wasn’t going to be for simply sensational effect like, ‘Holy moly, I can’t believe it’s Daniel’; it actually informs his character going forward, and the dynamic between Emily and all of the Graysons. With his input, we really got to the right place for it, and you’ll see where we get to going forward.”

Nayar on Josh Bowman’s statement that he wanted to be killed-off: “Josh had gotten himself into a space, because he knew he was doing this storyline, that some of the darkness was in his remarks in a way. He had just such a commitment to where his character was going that he, in his mind, just let it go to the nth degree. When he was just talking to the reporter, he let his imagination get away from him a little bit, just because he was living in the darkest place his character’s ever going to be. Coming out of it, anybody could die on Revenge at any time, so it wasn’t an insane thing to say, but we love Josh and obviously we have plans for his character.”

So, what did you think of the choice of Daniel shooting Emily?  Were you surprised?  When Revenge returns with all-new episodes in January, Emily will have amnesia, which will pave the way for a whole new set of circumstances! What do you think of that plot twist? Comment below!

I loved it! Love the show; while some may say Revenge has had its day, I’m still an ardent fan. I’ve also liked Daniel; I thought and still think he was an innocent victim of Emily/Amanda…and I had hoped at some point she’d fall in love with him. That would have made for an interesting turn of events as well. As for Daniel shooting her, he was already in a conflicted state-of-mind…feeling intensely for his ex, doing the right thing by marrying Emily, promising to be loyal and a good father…only to feel betrayed. Everyone on this show is trigger-happy… Read more »

@Rob Patrick opened the drawer and found the remote that exposes the safe in the wall with Em’s infinity box, the one behind the painting.

I can not believe that the promos didn’t actually give the whole thing away. I am so happy about that. Everything I saw in the ads was really Emily and Adien’s vision of how the plan should go. Loved the double-cross so that we really didn’t know what was going to happen until it actually did.

I’m looking forward to the show’s return!

Huh?

The revenge was never about Daniel, it’s about destroying Victoria & Conrad. And everyone else that was complicit in David Clark’s destruction/death. So, the show could go on for a very long time if they choose to continue. The writers are very clever and always come up with ways to continue the plotting.

IF Emily had actually pulled off her plan, then I would say the show was ending, but I don’t think that’s the case.

As a longtime fan of Emily VanCamp since she was on Brothers & Sisters, I thought it was funny at the wedding when the minister referred to her as Emily REBECCA Thorne.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
