Should Revenge Kill Off Daniel Grayson? (POLL)

What would ABC's Revenge be like without Josh Bowman's Daniel Grayson? We may find out. According to TV Guide, Bowman is trying to get his character killed off by the end of the season.

"I'm trying to pitch a Daniel death by the end of the season," says Bowman, who plans to express his concerns to the producers. "I love working on the show, but I'm just being honest. My character has flip-flopped the most, and it's been so hard for me to play."

    I totally get his frustration. Daniel has been turned into a complete a-hole that is spoiled and seems to have no purpose other than being the one Emily wants to get back at Victoria with.
    For the first two seasons, I liked his character. Daniel was a gray character, doing questionable things but also leaving no doubt that he doesn’t want to turn into his lying, manipulating and miserable parents. And now look at him. Daniel pretty much has become his father, while Charlotte – who I also can’t stand anymore and don’t even love to hate – has been turned into Victoria 2.0.
    Pretty much all the Graysons deserve what’s coming to them now. Mike Kelley made you feel sympathetic for Conrad and Victoria’s children.

    Not to mention that it would have been the much better story if Emily would fall for Daniel like it was played in season one. That would have been the soapy story right there. Making her doubt herself and feeling that Daniel would be an innocent victim in her revenge. That was “Revenge”‘s love story to tell.
    Instead you put Emily in a ridiculous triangle with Jack and Aiden. While I see some potential with Emily and Aiden, Jack and Emily share like zero chemistry. That’s why people fell for Emily/Daniel in season one.

    So, yeah kill Daniel off and bring Patrick back full-time and let him find out Victoria’s true colors while getting dragged into her revenge against Emily. Not to mention that Patrick/Nolan were hot.

    He’s turned into the worst-written character on that show and one of the worst-written in primetime period. And he’s right, the characters moods and motivations change on a dime of late.

    Truth be told I cut out on Revenge in Season 2

    Isn’t abc moving it to Sun 10 pm in 2014?

    That’s a shame the writing team couldn’t do something with Josh and have a plan – he’s so damn hot.

    Hells to the no. Kill Aiden please! Kill Jack please! Just don’t kill Daniel. Go with his plan of having him take Revenge on Emily. They are the ones that should end up together after they decimate each other back and forth for a few years. And, please, ABC, give Revenge a 5 year run, then end it. Do a full season next year, then 13 amazing episodes to wrap it up.

    i don’t know the show but if they are going to kill off a character it would probably be better as a surprise story twist rather than stemming from a public campaign by the actor.

    I don’t think they should kill off Daniel, if anyone needs to go its Aiden. His character is pointless and I think he has zero chemistry with Emily. I think Josh Bowman should stay till then end cuz I really don’t see revenge lasting for more than one more season.

    I’m a huge fan, Foxworth Crane should have become a series regular. This show is donezo. This is the last season. Unless they make it better quick. If it weren’t for the sets I would not be watching cause it is horrible. I love Emily Thorne but there is no where else to go.

    I quit watching halfway through the godawful Season 2. Season 3 has been getting some good reviews from TV critics, and I was tempted to go back; but now I think I already have a full plate when it comes to all the shows I watch and enjoy.

    Why risk disappointment with this one?

    Kill Jack. Kill Aiden. But, not Daniel. He’s the one with real chemistry with Emily. Take his suggestion and have him get really villain like and take revenge on Emily, then they can finally fall in love and be together and end the show. Give it a full season 4, and a 13 episode season 5 and wrap it up before it gets stupid!

    This is what happens when new show runners and writers come on.

    I think they are trying to make the revenge harder for Emily so they are turning Charlotte and Daniel into their parents. But that makes no sense. Charlotte is trying to break up Daniel and Emily just because Emily told a secret that Charlotte told her? So because of that one bad thing, Charlotte is turning into Victoria? Charlotte hated her parents for all their schemes yet now she’s doing it herself? And Daniel, he was pissed his father cheated on his mother, now he’s doing it to Emily?

    It was better when Daniel was the doe-eyed boy who loved Emily. Now that he’s trying to be a schemer, it ruins the Emily/Daniel relationship. The first season, Daniel was so sweet, Emily actually started to feel guilty and liked Daniel. There has to be someone we feel sorry for in this whole revenge scheme yet there isn’t anymore.

    They need to hurry and kill Aiden off. I still don’t understand why he was even brought back and why Victoria would be so willing to work with him. I need the Daniel/Emily/Jack love triangle to get back to the season 1 triangle. Have Daniel in love with Emily and Emily having some feelings for him but be in love with Jack. Let Jack still be pissed at Emily but secretly he still loves her. But keep him with that French girl. I like seeing Emily jealous.

    Did I mention kill off Aiden and bring back Victoria’s son for Nolan, STAT. Those two were the best couple on the show!

    Logan – everything you said and more

    I do like Aiden but more in the eye-candy way – I want the triangle back but with Daniel cheating I don’t think I can look the same way

    I need and want a Grayson to pay and soon…also I am this close [ ] to wanting to smack the taste out of Charlotte’s mouth because her hate of Ems makes no sense

    I adore Revenge, but I must agree with everyone that they show has become lackluster. The feel of season one has gone and I doubt that the new writers will be able to rekindle those days.

    Josh Bowman is definitely my type of men. Dark and handsome. I love when he breaks out of character every now and then. Josh is bored with the show. I believe that he is unhappy with the storyline especially since he is dating, Emily VanCamp in real life. Killing off Amanda was foreseeable. But writing off characters like Ashley and Declan made no sense and had little effect on where the story was going. They rushed through season 2, since Kelley was abandoning ship, by destroying off the point of Revenge.

    Aiden murdered Hiroyuki, which was basically killing off a major future ending of the show. They introduced Emily’s foster care brother only to have him disappear at the end. I could have seen a Charolette and Satoshi coupling, especially after Declan’s death. They should of tried to follow in the footsteps of Dynasty and introduced more vibrant characters who are also out for revenge on the Greysons. Remember Alexis, although Lydia is the Alexis of Revenge. I would enjoy a bitch fight between Victoria and Lydia. I would also like to have Ashley’s mother (similar to Dominique Carrington) return with Ashley in order to take down Victoria and Emily. As for the Daniel story, I would rather se Emily fall in love with Daniel ad have Jack be the other love potential. Aiden needs to go, I was very disappointed to see him still around this season. Patrick needs to return ad be with Nate. What may also save his show is if by miracle of miracles, Amanda never died and someone took her presumed dead body and has been nursing her back to health. Amanda will return to town to get revenge on everyone, first by killing of this English bitch jack’s dating.
