Ever since we watched Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) get shot at her own wedding in the Season 3 premiere of Revenge, we’ve been wondering just who pulled the trigger. Though we won’t know who shot Ems until the mid-season finale, we take some comfort in the fact that the actors were just as clueless about the identity of the gunman until very recently
Emily spoke to Entertainment Weekly Radio, Sirius XM 105, about that pivotal flash-forward and dished, “It was a really interesting thing to shoot to because I say ‘I’m sorry.’ And I said to them, ‘Who am I saying sorry to? That changes everything. The delivery of that line depends on me knowing who shoots me.’”
Although the writers told Emily they didn’t know the shooter at the time, she revealed that the cast has just learned the gunman’s identity. “It could be many, many different people and we’ve just found out who it is. I think it’s going to be really, really surprising”, she continued.
So when will viewers know the true identity of the mystery shooter?
We’re hoping this info will be revealed in the mid-season finale, and based on new showrunner Sunil Nayar’s recent chat with TVLine, we have reason to believe this could be true!
When asked if the mid-season finale would end abruptly with the shooting, Sunil said, “You may get a little bit of information beyond the shooting.”
Like the identity of the gunman, perhaps? Hey, one can hope!
Do you think we will learn who shot Emily by the mid-season finale, or will we have to wait even longer? Weigh in below!
Revenge airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
