Emily VanCamp Talks 'Revenge' Series Finale, Clears Up Any Confusion

Emily VanCamp is opening up for the first time about last night’s Revenge series finale and she’s clearing up any confusion that viewers may have had over what happened.

The series finale drew a 1.3 rating in the key 18-49 demo, which was its best performance in six months. It took in 4.8 million viewers total.

“We both collaborated on the ending. We invested so much time in the show that we wanted to build the best version possible,” Emily told Deadline about how she worked with showrunner Sunil Nayar to craft the ending to the series.

As we found out in the penultimate episode, Victoria Grayson was really alive. Emily decided the ultimate revenge would be to kill Victoria once and for all. She finds Victoria and right before she is about to pull the trigger, her dad David Clarke beats her to it. He doesn’t want her to spend her life in prison for the murder. Victoria still has a little bit of life in her though and she grabs a gun and shoots Emily, severely wounding her, but not killing her.

We later find out that David was given compassionate release from prison due to his sickness. He dies at home with Emily, who marries Jack Porter.

When Emily and Jack are sailing away after their wedding, she has a nightmare that she received a heart transplant from Victoria, a decision made by her daughter (and Emily’s half-sister) Charlotte.

“The part about the heart was strange and we wanted to make it clear that it was a psychological idea that she couldn’t leave Victoria behind. So we incorporated this in a dream sequence — it’s Amanda/Emily’s worsts nightmare, and we had to flesh out what the dream meant. Where is it coming from? Sunil made it clear that it was a psychological frame of mind, even though she received a happy ending. The idea that Victoria will follow her for the rest of her life is an interesting one. You don’t want to see Amanda get off without any kind of pain or suffering,” Emily said.

“She doesn’t have Victoria’s heart — that’s a strange and iffy thing. But the idea psychologically that Grayson will haunt her for the rest of her life is absolutely true. The dream is symbolic; the idea that Emily will never truly be happy. She was driven to be this person by this woman, which in turn created so much hate in this young girl. To have her gone is bittersweet in a weird way,” she added.

Madeleine Stowe added, “There was a back and forth about the heart and what was going on — if the actual heart transplant happened, or if it was more of Emily’s psyche, so that the audience wasn’t quite sure if she wound up with Victoria’s heart.”

    The finale was poorly written. This show jumped the shark last season.

    it was cursed by Jennifer Love Hewitt-she pulled some network strings got her baby daddy a job probably from reminding studio execs of the underage blow jobs she gave them to get into the teen scream queen gig anyway-they do it but the curse is in effect -like criminal minds will be done after season 10 now-it was lame and barely passable and only got 10 years cause cable is just that bad these days but one season of JHL looking like the most haggard soccer mom scaring all the men who used to jerk off to her screaming and jiggling her squished together boobs at the same time 20 years ago and it will be done too

  • Pamela Ramsay

    What does any of that have to do with the show Revenge?

  • Cory

    Amanda Clark/Emily Thorne was one of tv’s greatest female characters. I will miss her toughness/smarts and all around bad-assery (not a word I suppose).
