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 so it wasn’t such a stretch for me. What was more of a stretch was that he didn’t seem to have remorse after-the-fact.

I hope he doesn’t exit the show. He’s beautiful to look at….;) and I like his character. As a matter of fact, there’s a whole lotta eye candy on this show!

@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.

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talk Show Pilot In The Works

This fall, new talkers from Tamron Hall and Kelly Clarkson will be part of the daytime television landscape, and now comes word that Drew Barrymore may enter the space with a new talk show for her that is in development with the pilot being shot this coming week.

According to Variety, details of the proposed one-hour show are not all clear, but Drew is said to be one of the executive producers of the pilot episode and yet there is no showrunner attached to the project at this time.  Barrymore’s company, Flower Films is likely attached as well.

Back in 2016, Barrymore had a deal in place with Warner Brothers Telepictures for a talk show, but that never came to pass, in part to a lukewarm response from TV station groups at that time.

However now the new regime at CBS’ syndication arm is said to have ‘high hopes’ for the show and they feel that Drew will appeal and do well in the daytime arena.

Barrymore recently appeared in her third season of  Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet in its 30 episode season. Through her Flower Films she was been an executive producer on unscripted series including TLC’s Rattled and VH1’s Tough Love.

So, would you be interested. or intrigued to see what kind of show Drew Barrymore has to offer in daytime? Think she would be a good host? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
