Our jaws dropped to the floor at the tailend of the Revenge Season 3 premiere when Aiden Mathis (Barry Sloane) showed up at Grayson Manor and told Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) that he was ready to take down the girl next door.
Said neighbor is of course one Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) and it’s clear that Aiden now has a revengenda of his own. Though Ems may have broken his heart, it’s still unclear why Aiden is so enraged. What is clear however, is that Vicks and Aiden are ready to team up and destroy Emily. Prepare accordingly, America.
Several months ago Barry referred to his character’s time with Victoria as “sleeping with the enemy”, but are the two literally jumping in bed together? Not so fast, says showrunner Sunil Nayar.
Though Sunil does acknowledge that there are “definitely sparks” between the diabolical duo, there are currently no plans for anything romantic. “That’s not exactly the road we’re taking them down,” he tells TVLine.
In fact, before any takedown can begin, Aiden must prove himself as a worthy ally of the ice queen. “She [Victoria] really wants him to prove his fidelity,” Sunil explains, “because what a great ally he would be. They’re both trying to feel each other out. It’s fun to watch two people start to dance when neither one knows who’s leading and neither one trusts their partner.”
Fun, indeed! Are you ready for Aiden and Victoria to join forces, or are you still skeptical of this pairing? Tell us your thoughts and theories below!
