After a disappointing start to Season 2, the Revenge crew has made it known that the rest of the season will be dedicated to getting the story back on track. That means focusing on our favorite characters — especially Emily Thorne and her many enemies. 

Ms. Thorne’s No. 1 nemesis is Victoria Grayson, and in a recent interview with E! News, her portrayer, Madeleine Stowe, revealed that the rivalry between Emily and the Ice Queen is about to heat up.

“The way it unfolds is, she doesn’t need Emily, because she takes care of the problem herself,” Madeleine said. “The two women are going to be doing everything they can to destroy each other. And that’s what I think people want to see.”

Amen, sista friend! We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. But what does Victoria have against Emily?

“My character’s never bought her,” Madeleine continued. “She doesn’t think she’s a good person, she thinks she’s the wrong person for her son. She sees this girl who has untold wealth, access to all these politicians, and she’s going to start investigating her. And I think she’s convinced that she wants to take over my son’s business, so Victoria will do everything she can to destroy her.”

And though Emily is a worthy foe, Victoria’s manipulation is often unparalleled — except maybe by her devious hubby. Conrad convinced Victoria to marry him so the two would never have to testify against each other in court, but how long will their vows last? 

“She does not want to be with him. We’re about to shoot an episode where she really wants to get out of the relationship,” Madeleine revealed. “She thinks they have a deal and now that a certain problem is solved, she can get out of it. And he’s like, ‘No, I need you to be here. I want to run for office.’”

Will Connie get his way, or will Victoria’s desire to be a single lady rule? Guess you’ll have to keep watching to find out! But the real question is: In the battle between Emily and Victoria, who will win? Tell us your thoughts below.
