There are many love interests that exist within the world of “Revenge,” but in the end, it feels still like Jack and Emily are the two that are destined to be together. There is both a whole lot of love and history there, but they always seen to be at the wrong place, at the wrong time to pursue each other.
Could we see another roadblock coming in very soon? It definitely feels like it, at least when it comes to Jack’s new coworker (he is transitioning into police work) Ben. Brian Hallisay is going to recur this season, and as these two come closer, Jack may become more frustrated. This is something that Nick Wechsler does comment on further to TVLine, as he touches on the relationship that these two have formed, and some of the obstacles that may still be coming their way in the future:
“Well, the dude has an interest in Emily. And Jack’s not okay with that. It’s simple. It’s like, I think Jack has been respecting Emily’s like mourning so much. If we simplify the obstacles to them being together for each season: First season, it was he didn’t know who she was. Second season, he didn’t know who she was, and he fell for this girl that he thought was her and had a kid with her. Third season, he knew who [Emily] was, and the wife had passed away, but he was furious with her… Actually, and her being with Aiden.
“But this season, they’re going to have the same obstacles… But now she’s going through kind of what Jack was going through when he lost Amanda, this form of heartbreak. So [Ben’s] just going where I can’t, it would be crass of me to pursue her now. But I will say that now that like the anger has faded and I’m not with anyone else, I’m not distracting myself with anyone else, yeah. She’s still that girl I wanted my whole fricking life.”
For those curious, it does appear now as though Margaux is completely out of the picture now for Jack, though she will be around still in another form. For her, the question is going to be how the death of Pascal ends up shaping her, and turning her into a different version of the woman we have seen so far.
