With the massive web of storylines and a myriad of backstabbers and betrayals, it can sometimes be hard to remember who the villains are on Revenge. But one of our favorite “bad guys” is gossip-happy journalist-turned-novelist-turned-jailbird, Mason Treadwell.

We last saw Mason in Episode 7, “Penance,” when he discovered Emily Thorne’s true identity and went to jail all in the same day. Ems set Mason up for the murder of Gordon Murphy (aka The White-Haired Man).

So why did he stay in jail and fail to tell the police about the double infinity-tattooed delinquent? Because Ms. Thorne offered him a pretty sweet deal — stay silent and behind bars as payment for the rights to her official story once her vengeance mission was complete.  

The rub? We have no idea when Emily’s mission will be complete. She doesn’t want to simply pop a cap in Victoria’s head; she wants to make her pay. 

So when we saw the guest cast list for Episode 17, “Victory,” we drummed our fingers together and let out an evil cackle. Actor Roger Bart (Mason Treadwell) is listed for this drama-packed episode set to air on Sunday, March 24. 

We have no idea what role Mason will play in this upcoming episode, but we’re always excited to see this bow tie-clad conman. And now that Mason’s rocking an orange jumpsuit, we’re ready for an update on his life behind bars. 

Do you think Mason will stick with his promise to keep Emily’s identity a secret? Tell us below!
