The flashforward has been part of Revenge's DNA since we first tuned in to see a mysterious figure being shot as the Hamptons celebrated in the background. Since then, we've been treated to a number of intriguing flash forwards that signaled what to expect over the next half season or so. Will Season 4 continue the tradition?
Maybe... Maybe not. OK, that's not a great answer. But it sounds like the showrunner and writers haven't decided yet.
Showrunner Sunil Nayar dished to E! that he does "adore flash-forwards," but also said the Season 3 finale already gave the writers the chance to "shake things up a little bit and do the unexpected." This Conrad and Aiden dead, Victoria locked up in a mental institution, and David Clarke alive and back in town, do we really need a flash forward, too?
"There's a chance to shake it up from the very first frame of season four," Sunil added, "so fans think, ‘OK, this is a show that I love, but it's going to be different and surprise me.' There's a chance we might not do it."
Well, at this point we have a lot of faith in the show's re-focused vision. Season 3 really brought the show back to the basics, and we can't wait to see where it goes next!
