So is Victoria Grayson really alive or dead? This is the question that everyone has been asking since “Revenge” ended its crazy episode Sunday night entitled “Burn.” This is a woman who has cheated death so many times before, so it really would not be too big of a surprise to learn that she somehow made it through that a fiery explosion alive and plotting her next big move.
However, sometimes the biggest surprise is when there is no surprise at all, which is why it is very chilling to now write the following: Victoria is actually dead. There are no more tricks, at least unless Madeleine Stowe is holding a few tricks up her sleeve in a post-mortem chat with TVLine. At this point, we’re inclined to believe her that Victoria is actually dead. Not only that, but she wouldn’t be doing this interview if her character was actually still alive. That’s why we think that Scott Foley will make it through as Jake on “Scandal.”
In case you are wondering specifically why this death makes sense, Stowe is good enough to offer some sort of explanation on that subject to the website:
“People have different theories about it all, but one thing you need to remember is that Victoria has displayed that she’s suicidal … There’s always been a bit of a death wish in her. She has a history of that, so this shouldn’t be a complete surprise.”
Stowe also commented that there were many different moments where she, the producers, and ABC discussed a potential exit for her character. First, it was at the end of season 1, and then again at the end of season 3. Ultimately, this felt like the right moment, though she said that Victoria may still appear in flashbacks, and you will learn a little more about what drove her to this point.
