Revenge’s new showrunner Sunil Nayar has already warned us that Emily Thorne’s (Emily VanCamp) takedown plots will be more elaborate than ever, and it looks like he’s staying true to his word.

TVLine confirms that a priest plays a pivotal role in one of the first takedowns of Season 3 However, Father Paul Whitely (played by James LeGros) isn’t your ordinary man of the cloth. Turns out that before he turned to religion, he helped the Graysons plot against Emily’s father.

It wouldn’t be Revenge without a priest connected to the Graysons, right?

Father Whitely is expected to make his debut in Episode 2 after Emily seeks him out. As Sunil points out, his profession will add a new depth to Emily’s revengenda. “There’s an element to which the nature of him being a priest puts him up against the concept of what is good and what is right and what is the moral thing to do. And that, in turn, lets us examine Emily Thorne’s mandate in a way we haven’t had a chance to do before.”

We don’t know how we feel about bringing religion into Emily’s plots, but as long as The Initiative is far, far away, we’re willing to give it a shot.
