Populating the Hamptons isn’t as easy a task as you may think, and with the pressure on Revenge’s cast and crew to bring an even more explosive second season, there is an excess of new characters.

Show creator Mike Kelley understands that the story is more important than the cast list, and has taken the necessary measures to keep the show’s themes and flow in tact.

According to a new spoiler from TVLine, Mike is holding the character of Conrad Grayson’s son from a previous marriage (aka Daniel Grayson’s half brother) until he can find the perfect way to work him into the story.

“There’s already too much testosterone-tinged chaos happening in Emily’s life during Season 2 without him,” the site writes.

Instead of Danny’s half brother (from another mother), the show will focus more on Emily Thorne’s new love interest, played by British actor Barry Sloane. Aiden (originally reported to be named Ethan) “is someone who was in revenge school with Emily and was really her first adult love.”

“We’re enjoying [telling] their flashback stories,” Mike said, “and also [exploring] a present-day dynamic between these two really passionate people who share a common goal, but are at odds with how much they trust each other.”

But don’t worry — the creator plans to introduce Conrad’s son later in the season. We’re glad the character isn’t being cut completely because the last time Daniel had some professional competition, it ended with a dead body on the beach. And who doesn’t like a good murder scene?
