Revenge Showrunner on Why [SPOILER] Had to Die in Game-Changing Season Finale

SPOILER ALERT: It was an eye for an eye, a hunk for a hunk Sunday night on the Season 3 finale of Revenge. To pay back Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) for her role in Pascal's (Oliver Martinez) demise, Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) killed Emily's henchman/lover Aiden (Barry Sloane)!  

Showrunner Sunil Nayar shared why Aiden had to die with The Hollywood Reporter. Said Nayar:

Clearing her father's name ends a bit of Emily's revenge strategy, but [killing Aiden renews her quest] for revenge in a very present sense. She was a girl when her father was taken away, but this gives us a fresh sense of revenge, and the audience gets to feel it in the moment. When you watch what happens [to Aiden], it's horrifying and devastating and allows the audience into the mindset of someone who wants revenge. She can't believe [Victoria] killed Aiden, and she wants her to die and suffer.

Everyone in Mystic Falls was playing the lying game on tonight's episode of The Vampire Diaries. Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) told Damon (Ian Somerhalder) that Enzo (Michael Malarkey) left town, though the sexy newcomer actually killed himself after learning Damon killed his true love, Maggie.

Bonnie (Kat Graham) hid the fact she's going to die for a second time from her boyfriend Jeremy (Stephen R. McQueen). Damon rescued an unconscious Elena then left before she realized he saved her. At a press screening, Somerhalder and executive producer Caroline Dries discussed how these betrayals will impact the rest of the season, whether the Travelers will succeed at their goal of destroying the Other Side and whether there is hope for Damon and Elena's romance.
