TVLine reports that James — who recently starred on Resurrection — will be joining the cast as a series regular in the upcoming season, meaning we’ll have tons of time to get used to all of the drama that will unfold from his return. We’ve only gotten to see David in flashbacks so far on the show (except for his return, of course) but now we’ll get to see him in action with some of the crazy ladies of the Hamptons, Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) and Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe)!
“Victoria and Emily are both going to have to reckon with what they’ve done in his name over the last 20 years, and then they’ll have to reckon with, ‘Well, who is this man,’” showrunner Sunil Nayar teased to TVLine. “It’s fun because, for the first time, the audience knows something that none of the people on the show do. The audience knows what he did to Conrad, they know what a raw act of vengeance it was. So the David that’s eventually going to come back to town isn’t going to be the David that the people in the Hamptons know, but the viewers have seen him and know what he’s capable of. That’s a fun dynamic we’ve never gotten to play with before.”
Hmm, it sounds like the Powers That Be definitely have big plans for using Davis next season — now if we could just fast-forward to fall!
