Revenge Season 2 New Promo: An In-Depth Analysis (PHOTOS)
With only 41 days left until the Season 2 premiere of Revenge, ABC caused us to drop our Infinity Boxes this weekend when they released the first promo with new footage.
The trailer opens with Season 1 footage of Emily Thorne being a badass, but around the 17-second mark, we picked up our red Sharpies and started analyzing the new clips.
Here’s our scene-by-scene analysis:
Emily Thorne Shoves Man Against a Rock
Soaking wet, the queen of revenge throws an unknown man against a rock and places a knife to his throat.
“Dead or alive, I’m going to find out what happened,” she says.
This could mean several things. She could be saying that his life doesn’t matter and she’ll find out the truth regardless of whether or not she kills him. Or it could be that Emily still plans to uncover the truth whether or not her mother is alive.
This martial arts pro looks pretty menacing, but the last time she was given the opportunity to kill, she turned it down, so we’re not expecting a bloodbath here.
She’s wearing this yellow dress, and also looking very menacing in this shot as Daniel looks on unphased. Could this be his apathy toward life post-Emily?
Emily’s Tied to a Wooden Post
We’ve been waiting to see shots of Ms. Thorne’s mysterious wooden post ordeal. After actress Emily VanCamp tweeted about it, we’ve been a little more than curious.
Note the two figures (seemingly male) dressed in black on the left side of the frame. We bet they are connected to the Americon Initiative. And if you check out Em’s hairstyle, you might remember it from the first shot where she’s beating up a man in black.
In these photos, she’s wearing a black sweatshirt, and in the shots of her threatening the guy with a knife, she has on a tank top. Could she have pulled another Houdini with her jacket (circa Revenge Season 1 finale)?
