Ladies and gentlemen! Socialites and townies! Revengers of all ages! This is the Season 2 spoiler roundup to end all spoiler roundups. If you consider yourself a Revenge expert, than this is the article you want to read from top to bottom.
We’re only 5 days away from the highly anticipated Season 2 premiere (Sept. 30 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC), and while we’re sure you have taken the time to refresh yourself on Season 1, how much do you really know about Season 2?
Just like Emily Thorne, we’re not particularly fond of surprises, so we’ve compiled this extensive list of spoilers to prepare you for Sept. 30.
While there’s a myriad of exciting new characters this season, here’s what you can expect from the central Hamptonites on Season 2.
When we left the revenge queen, she was still reeling from the news that her mother was alive. This information changes her entire quest come Season 2. It turns out mommy not-so-dearest has some “deep psychological issues” that will play a big part in Emily’s sanity this season.
She’s constantly questioning her destiny (note the Episode 1 title) and fate. Will she end up just like her disturbed mother? Em’s mom, Kara Wallace Clarke (played by Jennifer Jason Leigh), will definitely appear in the premiere episode in flashback mode. And we know that we'll see her in the present day by Episode 6.
Ems is hell-bent on trying to find Kara, and her quest takes her back to revenge school with Takeda and into the arms of her new love interest, Aiden Mathias. The two meet while training and seem to have a dark past together. “They’ve lost similar things, and they [came] together,” says show creator Mike Kelley. Aiden will be Em’s first “adult relationship.”
And while she’s busy working out her relationships and looking for her mother, someone important will discover Em’s true identity!

Naturally, the most highly anticipated plotline has been kept the most secretive pre-Season 2. After Victoria’s plane supposedly exploded in the Season 1 finale, fans and critics alike have basically been convinced that the Ice Queen survived.
Madeleine Stowe is on this season’s cast list as a series regular, but apart from seeing her in one fantasy teaser trailer, and snagging a shot from her memorial service, we don’t know much else.
Josh Bowman (Daniel Grayson) said she didn’t die, but could this be false information leaked to put us at ease before she turns up dead? And for those cast members that say she’ll be back, there could always be more flashback episodes like last season’s “Legacy.”
According to Henry Czerny (Conrad Grayson), Lydia Davis “definitely died” in the explosion, but Vicky’s fate is still up in the air. Lately, we’ve been leaning toward her being a goner, but we hope it’s not so!
And regardless of Victoria’s fate this season, we can expect to see her mother make an appearance. Yikes!
Though we’re not sure if this counts as good news, Charlotte Grayson survived the pill-popping party of 2012. Apparently her overdose screwed up someone’s big plans, but now she’s back, still struggling with her addiction, and seriously missing momma Grayson. All of the betrayal surrounding Charlotte’s life could cause her to seek out her own revenge this season.
Could it land her in the E.R.?
According to this brand new spoiler clip, Charlotte thinks that Conrad's behind her mother's supposed death, and thinks that Ems can help her. What has this former pill addict uncovered?
After becoming a fan favorite last season, Nolan Ross will get infinitely more screen time this year. As a direct result of getting his ass kicked by Tyler, Frank, and the White-Haired Man last season, Nolan’s beefing up and getting some training in the boxing ring. And no one’s complaining about more sweaty, shirtless scenes for the Nolster.
We’ll also get an inside look into Nolan’s company, NolCorp. This comes complete with his new co-worker and love interest, Padma. Played by actress Dilshad Vadsaria, Padma is “a gorgeous fiercely intelligent, pop culture savvy financial whiz who brings her own spin to her job at Nolan’s company.”
And speaking of NolCorp, it seems the company will have a techie competitor from a mysterious corporation called SwiftTech.
And finally, Nolan is also updating his software this season, so in place of the Shamu whale cam, expect to see the Clam Cam!
Danny’s back to his crazy, party boy ways. In one spoiler clip from Season 2, we see him drinking hard liquor early in the day and threatening to set his share of Grayson Global on fire. Breaking his engagement to Emily Thorne has definitely taken its toll, but Ashley Davenport is there to ease the blow.
He’s also suffering with guilt from losing his mother, since their last exchange ended badly.

Jack Porter & Amanda Clarke
Fauxmanda is back and bigger than ever! This obnoxious ex-stripper is with child, and she claims the fetus belongs to Jack Porter. The two are expecting a bouncing baby boy, but after watching the first few minutes of Season 2, we can tell you that the young couple no one’s rooting for isn’t exactly head-over-heels in love.
This could be what leads to Amanda’s salacious baby shower, complete with her former stripper friend, Destiny. Could some of the new couple’s tension be coming from the baby’s godmother, Emily Thorne? Actor Nick Wechsler did admit that Jack and Ems have “a moment” in the premiere.
And Jack is also at the center of a major plotline this season that could have us praying for his safety!
With his mistress and ex-wife seemingly out of the picture, Conrad is set to rule the Hamptons come Season 2. And though he’s still being investigated for his possible involvement in the plane explosion and Grayson Global’s questionable practices, we have a feeling that Conny will be able to hold his own.
Also set to make an appearance this season is Conrad’s family from his previous marriage. Originally, show creator Mike Kelley had envisioned Daniel Grayson’s half-brother as a major antagonist (and potential love interest for Emily Thorne), but the character is currently tabled in favor of Em’s romantic storyline with Aiden Mathias.

At the start of Season 2, Ashley Davenport is still planning parties, but she’s also attending them! Considering her date, Daniel Grayson, is probably at the top of the guest list at many Hamptons soirees, Ashley is now living the life she always wanted. Ash and Danny are a regular item now, and her backstabbing ways could potentially put her in Emily’s line of fire this season.
Luckily, Ashley has recruited a new mini-me named Eve to be her protege (and potential bodyguard?).
So far we don’t know a lot about Declan’s future this season. He’ll be dealing with the guilt surrounding Charlotte’s overdose, but it seems he’ll have a new “preppy misfit” friend to help him cope. This newcomer could be a bad influence on the youngest Porter boy.

Not only is the revenge martial arts master getting a bigger role this season, but he’s also being played by a different actor. Due to scheduling conflicts, Hiroyuki Sanada (who played Takeda last season) is giving the role to Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa.
Takeda is connected to Emily Thorne’s wooden post predicament from the Season 2 promos, and has been “training” Fauxmanda. Ems doesn’t trust him anymore, especially considering he doesn’t approve of her mission to find her mother.
