There's nothing quite like a good Revenge flashback, and it sounds like we have several to look forward to when Season 3 returns.

We already knew that we'll be treated to some fun Victoria and Conrad flashbacks involving Margaux’s dad, and now it sounds like we can expect to learn a bit more about the mysterious Mr. Mathis.

As much as we like to forget the initiative ever existed, we know that shady operation is responsible for most of Aiden's angst, having forced his dad to plant the bomb on Flight 197, and then kidnapping and later killing his sister.

We thought those hardships were enough to explain Aiden's brooding ways, but according to E! there's more to know about Aiden's backstory. In the back half of the season we're going to be treated to a flashback that shows us a 12-year-old Aiden "witnessing a traumatic event."

Let us guess: This flashback will set off yet another revenge plot. Doesn't everything?

Are you looking forward to this flashback, or have you had enough of Aiden's tragic past? Let us know in the comments below!
