It's hard out there for a townie! The Season 2 finale of ABC's once-brilliant sudser Revenge saw the demise of Declan Porter (One Life to Live and Gossip Girl alum Connor Paolo). Jack's (Nick Wechsler) kid brother and Charlotte's (Christa B. Allen) baby daddy perished following an explosion at Grayson Global. While a presumably hacked off Paolo declined to speak to TV Guide Magazine's William Keck, his co-stars weighed on the death of Declan.

Said Wechsler:

"Connor wasn't happy. But he also took it like a champ. I think on some level he was preparing himself for it because he knew he wasn't being used that much."

Added Allen on learning her leading man was getting iced:

"I couldn't hold it together," she recalls. "Then Connor came in to the make-up trailer while I was still sobbing."


I can see why TPTB decided to cut their losses with Declan. His death gives Jack even more reason to want to destroy the Graysons in Season 3. Also, Char being preggers with a dead man's tyke is totes more dramatic than watching another couple trying to raise a brat on a boat for 22 episodes. Do you think Declan's endgame was justified on Revenge? Sound off in the comments!
