Who knew that the second season of “Revenge” was going to have such a maternal vibe to it? We already knew about the impending arrival of Emily’s mother thanks to what happened in the season finale, but it’s now looking as though Victoria’s own mommy dearest could so be entering the fray.
According to TVLine, producers are currently in the process of casting the key role after what may have been the death of Madeleine Stowe’s character in a plane crash. However, there’s not much known other than this. We’re not sure what is going to lead to her turning up, but we think that a funeral may somehow be involved. Are we necessarily trying to say that Victoria is dead? Not exactly. We just know that faking her own death (or at least sensing it was coming, and then decided to pretend as though she is dead) are two storylines that we have to consider as being on the table for the new season.
The issue of Victoria’s life is far from the only problem that the writers are currently facing for season 2 — there is also the issue of Amanda’s pregnancy, a few other lives that are in the balance, and whether or not they want to keep the setting in the Hamptons or (as many rumors have suggested) if they want to move the story along to somewhere new in New York City — which could very well be a playground for Emily to cause all sorts of trouble.
Do you have any casting suggestions for this role at the moment?
