Beware of SPOILERS below!
PRE-FINALE EPISODES | The Falcon has landed, and we’re about to learn the nefarious hacker’s identity.
“You’ll know who the Falcon is in Episode 19—and he or she will be integral to the finale,” Revenge boss Mike Kelley reveals. Meanwhile, he says, “Jack is in discovery mode [and] is not going to snap out of the darkness anytime soon…and Nolan’s story with Padma is not over. That does not mean that Padma is necessarily alive; it just means that there’s more to that story.”
The mystery surrounding Victoria’s other offspring “will be answered before the end of the season,” he discloses. “It’s a race to see who can find this person first, and when they do, the son will definitely have an opinion or two about his mother.” As for Queen V, Kelley tells us that she’ll “be put in another situation where her fate is in her hands…and she’ll learn something that she was in the dark about regarding the Initiative.” Maybe that development will distract her from this little engagement?
MAY 12 SEASON FINALE | “In keeping with the themes of this season—which were destiny versus free will, and how we shape our story with the choices that we make—Emily will be put in a position to have to make a pretty drastic decision in order to save somebody that she loves,” Kelley shares of the two-hour season ender—which “revolves around Conrad’s election” and is titled Truth.”
Unfortunately, a major player—“one of the nine characters that we began the show with”—won’t make it out alive. And wouldn’t you know, the Initiative is responsible for the impending demise. “You’ll find out exactly what the Initiative does: They profit off of fear. When you can predict how people are going to behave in the wake of a disaster, you can put your money in places where you’re going to make a lot of it…They do something quite terrible in order to profit, and it ends up taking the life of one of our characters.” That said, “We will be resolving the Initiative plot in a pretty profound way,” Kelley reveals.
As for our previous report that the finale is Nolan-centric, the showrunner will only tease with a laugh: “Nolan is very front-and-center in the finale—as are Daniel and Jack and Emily. It’s one of those things that tie everybody together in a way that feels very satisfying.”
Everything about this…
