I let the cast of "Revenge" tease the goodness that was this week's "Chaos," all about Daniel and Emily's Fire & Ice-themed engagement party that turned into a bloodbath. But that was one episode you just couldn't tease enough, right? Amazing.
So what's next now that the big series premiere twist has finally been revealed?
Stars Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Henry Czerny, Christa B. Allen and Connor Paolo weigh in on the return of Tyler, the introduction of some new evil forces and how "Revenge" is going to take things to the next level.
Warning: If you haven't watched this week's "Revenge," there are major spoilers ahead!
On the big twist of "Chaos"
Josh Bowman, who plays Daniel Grayson: "Mike Kelley likes to switch it up, and you've got to expect the unexpected, so when I read [the script for "Chaos"] at the table read, I was happy to learn that I'm alive."
Gabriel Mann, who plays Nolan Ross: "The first thing I said to Sandy Bookstaver, the director, was, 'You asshole. You made me cry in a Fauxmanda scene!' I was like, 'Don't make me mushy over Fauxmanda -- I don't like her!' You know what I mean? I don't like her, but I love her. That's the crux of why the show feels especially good right now."
Christa B. Allen, who plays Charlotte Grayson: "If we didn't kill Tyler, Tyler was probably gonna kill one of us."
Tyler might be dead, but he's not gone
Bowman: "We do have flashbacks. You should expect to see him in the next episode with the confrontation on the beach between us two -- you're going to find out what happened."
Connor Paolo, who plays Declan Porter: "Just because you get shot don't mean you die! I cite 50 Cent, Jay-Z ... you never know."
How intense will the upcoming trial be for Daniel Grayson?
Bowman: "The audience shouldn't expect to see the same outcome as with Emily's father's trial. Justice will prevail for sure. But I wouldn't expect to see any lighthearted moments between Daniel and Emily for the rest of the season either."
Will we see Fauxmanda, a.k.a. Margarita Levieva, again?
Nick Wechsler, who plays Jack Porter: "I'll tell you that if I happened upon someone I love, on the beach over a body, and I made the split-second decision to tell her to get the fuck out of there, and I have to now try to figure out what I'm going to do to help cover her tracks ... I'm gonna want to talk to her after. I'm gonna want to know that she's OK, and have her fill me in on how this happened."
What about Charlotte and those pills?
Allen: "It's a bad spiral, and it goes down, baby!"
Paolo: "And I have no clue. All of a sudden she's happy again -- I'm relishing it!"
Henry Czerny, Conrad Grayson: "I can't tell you what happens next, but I will remind you of what Tyler said, which is a clue from the writers to the audience: 'Oh, that's not the ending. This is just the beginning.' The tangents are now deeper because of what has happened. A known entity, a character that has been in the soup for a while and spiced it up, and has become part of the flavor of the soup, is now gone -- to a certain extent. There might be flashbacks, or there might be other things that Tyler was involved with."
Mann: "It's amazing that we've gotten people to come on this ride for this segment of the story ... but when you break it down, all of this that's happened is actually just the jumping off point for the real series. We've taken the liberty of this many episodes to get everybody familiar with these characters and suck everyone into this world, and now we're going to start to play."
Allen: "There's one character, and you don't really know if he's gone or not ... and that's all I'm going to say. I'm teetering on the edge of revealing some things here!"
Paolo: "There's going to be a bit more Declan-Nolan action."
Bowman: "I would love to see grandma Grayson ... that would be fantastic. Maybe Sophia Loren."
