As delighted as Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) is to have her son Patrick (Justin Hartley) over for dinner, the Hamptons’ resident ice queen is just as perturbed when an unwanted visitor drops by Grayson Manor earlier in the day.
This “guest” is none other than Father Paul Whitely, a character we’ve already told you a good deal about. Apparently the clergyman helped the Grayson’s plot against Emily Thorne’s (Emily VanCamp) father long ago before, you know, discovering god.
Apparently Daniel (Josh Bowman) and Emily have asked Father Whitely to officiate their wedding, something that catches Vicki G. by surprise.
“Tell me you’re not considering it,” Victoria declares.
“I feel it’s the right thing to do; it’s the reason I’m here,” Father Whitely counters.
Father Whitely also reveals that he’s in town to “shame” the Graysons and intends to do so by putting certain events “to rest.” Sounds scandalous!
We know that Ems recruited Father Whitely to be part of her takedown plot, so we can wait to see what this man of the cloth has in store. Showrunner Sunil Nayar previously said that this religious twist could color Emily’s revengenda.
“There’s an element to which the nature of him being a priest puts him up against the concept of what is good and what is right and what is the moral thing to do. And that, in turn, lets us examine Emily Thorne’s mandate in a way we haven’t had a chance to do before.”
Check out the sneak peek below and meet Father Whitely for yourself!
