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.

No. 15: Dr. Liesl Obrecht, General Hospital


With a mother like Dr. Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) on General Hospital, can Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) really be blamed for turning out so screwed up? Dr. Obrecht loves only one person more than herself — Faison (Anders Hove), whom she frets over not providing with a son.

The nutty, international criminal-turned-hospital chief of staff did manage to give someone a male heir. We wonder if Detective Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) knows what he's in for, having a mutter like Obrecht?
