ABC’s ‘Revenge’ season 2 spoilers: More on Emily’s new love interest

After getting unlucky with love with both Jack and Daniel during the first season of “Revenge,” it now looks as though Emily Thorne is going to be looking in a completely different direction — and with somebody that she has done for a quite a while.

So what do we know about this person at the moment? Their name just so happens to be Ethan, and he is also played by British actor Barry Sloane. Outside of that, though, we really don’t know that much. Speaking to “Access Hollywood” in a new interview, series star Emily VanCamp at least tries to do her part to further expound upon the relationship:

“That’s going to be, I think an interesting relationship, because I think it will be the first relationship that you see an attraction … [with an] adult male that, they had a grown up relationship.”

Is Ethan going to end up being a valuable ally for Emily? We have to think so — after all, she is far from over when it comes to executing her plot, and she could even need some help when it comes to some of the more difficult excursions including finding her mom (who will be played by Jennifer Jason Leigh).

We should expect to seen Ethan turn up at some point early on the season, and then potentially stay around a while — with that being said, though, it may be premature to say for sure that this is indeed going to be a character that we end up seeing for the rest of the season.

Do you think that Emily really needs a new love interest so soon after the various disasters with both Jack and Daniel? We want to hear some of your thoughts below! To check out some more of the latest casting news from the world of “Revenge,” be sure to follow the link here.
